The discussion began when Tanya Pistillo, organizer of the new Ulmer Park Market, asked commissioners for their support of the market during their meeting Jan. 21. We started out with a mere five vendors. This past month, we jumped up to 19. And Im already booking into April, she said. Nearby residents have appreciated the activity in their neighborhood and have even requested more events in Ulmer Park, which sits in the center of the West Bay Drive redevelopment district. But hosting the new monthly market has not been cheap. I would love to have more city backing, maybe waiving some fees, some sort of agreements we can come to not have to worry about the fees so I can carry on doing these events, bringing the community out of their homes, getting them downtown, getting them to realize more businesses exist downtown, Pistillo said. Market-goers have asked for produce vendors to be a part of the market, she added. But that would require the market to be open on a weekly basis, not just second Saturdays. Kimberly Platt, owner of the Charlie Tulums Taco Shack and Dos Tacos Food Truck, said the market has been great advertising for her new taco business, which opened in Largo three months ago. She too was in favor of bringing produce to Ulmer Park. I try to take (the taco truck) to the markets and actually purchase my food directly from vendors there and then cook that on the truck, Platt said. I would love to be able to do that here. Commissioners discussed the issue later in the meeting. Largo has had markets at Ulmer Park before, but the operation was moved to the Largo Community Center. Commissioner Harriet Crozier said she had been under the impression the city-operated market was meant to be a weekly endeavor. We dont have the staff we used to have, Mayor Pat Gerard commented. Gerard asked staff to investigate how other cities in the area were supporting, or not supporting, community markets. Commissioner Woody Brown said he didnt think other markets were manned by city staff, but were a result of a partnership with the respective cities.

From my research, I dont think youre going to get produce in the park unless its weekly, Brown said. City manager Mac Craig said his staff was working with Pistillo to come to help keep the market going, despite the costs. We think we can get there, he said. We think we can get it done. The costs to host an event like the market include the rental fee for Ulmer Park, a utility fee if the vendors need electricity, a charge to deliver and pick up a dumpster and the cost of renting portable toilets. Park clean-up fees are $22 per hour per staff person. The city requires every vendor to have insurance, and the community development department charges a fee for a special event permit and a banner fee. In the end, the market costs roughly about $1,000 each month, Pistillo said. She does charge the vendors who participate for the space they use. Its not even covering the costs, she said. The West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment Agency has an events and promotion assistance program to set aside finds for purposes like the market. A city sponsorship through the program provides up to $1,500 per applicant per fiscal year to help pay for city related expenses, according to city documents. Pistillo said she has used up those funds during the first four months of the market. A request to extend the funds for the market beyond the $1,500 max was on the agenda for Feb. 4, but Pistillo said she was told it was removed given the pending research of other markets in the area. Parks, Arts and Recreation Director Joan Bryne said she had requested the information from other cities and was waiting to hear back. Information about the larger market in St. Petersburg was the hardest to come by. Im hoping to have something by the end of the week, she said. The results will be reported in a weekly city managers report, she explained. Pistillo said she plans on gathering supporters to speak in favor of the market during the next commission meeting, whether the issue is on the agenda or not. Im going to be pulling as many people as I can here Feb. 4 to voice their thoughts (and) feelings about how important it is for them, she said. The next Ulmer Park Market featuring live music, food trucks, arts and crafts and local vendors will be held Saturday, Feb. 8, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 301 W. Bay Drive. For more information or to rent a vendor booth, call Tanya Pistillo at 465-8558. MARKET, from page 1A

4A Largo Leader, January 30, 2014Geraldine Gere Turner. She died Feb. 14, 2013 at age 91. The home originally belonged to her parents, Alfred Cleveland and Amber Clark Turner. Along with her family home, she gave the county $100,000 to pay for the move. Work began on the Turner Bungalows new home site just north of the Walsingham House in December. Workers removed about 40 pine trees to make room for the house built in 1915. Volunteers spent many hours preserving artifacts inside the home, while contractors prepared the historic structure for its trip. One of the last steps was to remove its roof to reduce the weight and get the height down low enough to pass under traffic signals along the 8-mile route. Paige Noel, Heritage Village project management specialist and volunteer coordinator, said packing up the house was challenging due to the amount of artifacts inside. She was excited about the acquisition. Ive been working at Heritage Village for 10 years and this is the first house theyve moved in, she said. It will be some time before the Turner Bungalow will be open to the public for viewing. Plans call for the home to be refurbished, which will take an undetermined amount of time. It needs a lot of work, Noel said. Hailed as a significant addition to the countys historical village, the Turner Bungalow aligns with the villages master plan, Noel said in an email sent to volunteers in mid-December. She described the home as a good example of early 20th century wood-framed Florida vernacular bungalow design. Florida vernacular houses also may be referred to as Florida crackers. They typically are plain, constructed from local materials and styled for weather conditions of the location. Bungalows, aka cottages, often were built as summer homes before people began to live in them year-round. It is fitting that a home belonging to the Turner family found its way to Heritage Village. Geraldines grandfather had a big influence on the countys early history. Some say he was one of the sparks that led to Pinellas separating from Hillsborough in 1912. Arthur Campbell Turner came to what would become Pinellas County in 1851 and moved to Clear Water Harbor in 1854. He served on the Hillsborough County Commission, which at the time was the government for land that would eventually become Pinellas. Turner was unhappy with the lack of money provided to western Hillsborough and made his views known, helping to stir up dissension across the bay. Historical accounts describe Turner as a leading citizen, serving as postmaster, the countys first treasurer and a supervisor of elections, aka registration officer, from 1914-1916. He was the publisher of the West Hillsboro Times, having purchased the paper in 1884. He sold the paper to R.J. Morgan in 1892. Morgan moved operations to St. Petersburg and eventually changed the name to the St. Petersburg Times. Turner also served on the Clearwater City Council and board of education. The A.C. Turner store was Clearwaters first general store. Law Board of Directors, Town of Indian Shores Board of Adjustment, Florida Federal Contractors Association Board of Directors and previously served on the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast Board of Advisors. Sink is a past and present board member of the United Way Suncoast, Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, Florida Tax Watch, Florida Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, Florida Council of 100, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Take Stock in Children, Florida Wildlife Federation, Florida Healthy Kids, USF Foundation and United Way Worldwide Advisory Board. Overby is the founder of Take a District, an outreach group designed to engage voters under 30 with their government and their community. He is currently a member of Clearwater Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center Collision and the Libertarian Party. He also has worked with a number of nonprofit groups.Why run for office?Jolly said he is running to fill the immeasurable void left in Congress and the county after Youngs death. This is what this race is all about to me, he said in response to a questionnaire sent to all candidates. Ive worked on behalf of our community and this congressional district for 20 years alongside our late Congressman, as he consistently found ways to grow high-tech and defense manufacturing jobs here at home, invest in transportation and infrastructure improvements that affect our quality of life, expand higher education opportunities, protect and nourish our beaches, and support our men and women in uniform. I got into this race because I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. I also believe I can bring together Republicans, Independent and Democrats to work together. Sink said, If you see a problem and think you can be part of the solution, you owe it to your community to step up and work to fix it. I am running because I am sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. Its time for Republicans and Democrats to come together to tackle the challenges that matter most to Pinellas County caring for our seniors and veterans, stopping the flood insurance rate spike, helping businesses grow jobs and protecting Medicare and Social Security. As a business leader and (former) Floridas chief financial officer, I put partisanship aside and worked across party lines to get things done. Its these bipartisan, results-oriented values that I will take to Congress to break the gridlock and get results for Pinellas. Overby said he is running because it gives him the opportunity to fight for my neighbors on the national level. I believe that with my knowledge of the community and my lifelong work in the area, I have a unique knowledge of how the laws Congress passes affects the everyday person, he said. Living and working under the regulatory burden imposed on working class citizens for so long, I am in a position to understand how to help my community.What candidates hope to accomplishJolly has three top priorities, creating jobs and growing our economy, repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a market-based solution, and replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Natural Disaster Insurance Program. Sink said the most important thing she wants to do in Congress is to be part of bringing folks together to focus on solving the challenges that matter most to Pinellas, like helping businesses grow jobs. And one of the most important challenges we face here in Pinellas is the flood insurance issue, she said. First, we need to stop the rate spike, but we also need a longer term solution that provides more accountability, transparency and affordability for homeowners. We also need to get Congress focused on protecting our seniors and veterans. I will fight to protect Medicare and Social Security end of discussion. And I want to make it easier for veterans to find jobs and get the benefits theyve earned. As a wife and daughter of Marines, this is very personal to me. Overby said he has short-term and long-term goals. In the short term, we plan to focus on simplifying the tax code, working on cutting federal waste, ending corporate welfare and working toward real immigration relief, he said. While I have long-term and short-term legislative goals, I have spent this campaign focused on goals that would have the greatest immediate impact. In general, my goals will always be to limit the size and scope of the federal government and to open up opportunities for workers and business owners alike.Best qualified candidateJolly said, Pinellas County and our nation deserve a leader who will work to create jobs and grow our local economy, lower taxes, cut wasteful spending, secure Americas borders, lower the national debt, replace Obamacare with free-market health care policy and respect our Constitution and Bill of Rights. I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. Sink said, My commitment to solving problems is driven by my real world experience as a business leader, my service as Floridas Chief Financial Officer and as a contributor to our nonprofit community. In the private sector, I helped Florida families secure the resources they needed to pursue their dreams, and as CFO, I cut wasteful spending to make government do more with less and fought for consumer protections, especially those focused on seniors. My life has always been guided by bipartisan, results-oriented leadership, and its these values I will bring to Washington. Overby said, I am more qualified than my opponents because of both my time and experience in the private sector, which takes a vast understanding of not only existing legislation but preparedness for new legislation, and my time and experience working with this community. Not only do I understand better what is it like to live and work in this community far better than my opponents, I offer a vastly different vantage point on the issues and have the experience to offer solutions.Most pressing issuesJolly said the most pressing issues in Washington, D.C., that affect Pinellas County are the need to create jobs and grow our local economy, repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution, and replace the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Disaster Insurance Program. Additionally, I believe the Administration and Congress must balance the budget, he said. Sink said, Everywhere I go, homeowners and businesses tell me the flood insurance rate spike will put them at risk of losing their homes or businesses. This is yet another self-inflicted crisis Congress has refused to act on and Pinellas families will suffer if they cant put politics aside to solve the problem, she said. Sink said she had outlined several proposals to combat the flood insurance crisis. Protecting Pinellas seniors is also a top priority, she continued. As CFO, I worked to defend Floridas seniors from fraud and abuse and in Congress I will continue in those efforts. Social Security and Medicare are promises that have been made to our seniors and I am committed to being a strong advocate for preserving that promise. Overby said, Having been working with the community to build solutions and address concerns for the past year of this campaign, I have heard time and time again that jobs and the economy are the two biggest concerns. This is the reason I have chosen to go after the legislative reforms that I have. Unless we work toward reopening the small business sector, the people of this district will continue to suffer, he said.What should be done?Jolly said, I started and ran the Florida Federal Contractors Association to sustain and grow Pinellas defense, high-technology and manufacturing industry. We must protect these jobs by electing a member of Congress that understands the important contribution these companies make to job growth and our local economy. Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution that solution should be able to address pre-existing conditions, protect policy owners from cancellation and allow children to remain on their parents policies until a later age just as the Affordable Care Act does, he said. Jolly proposes replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new National Disaster Insurance Program. The Administration and Congress should balance the budget, he said. Merely reducing the amount of the annual deficit does not constitute capturing additional revenue. An actual surplus would create an opportunity to consider additional investment in services with a reduction of the tax burden imposed on individuals and businesses. Sink said, I will work to bring Republicans and Democrats together to focus on the challenges that Pinellas families are facing. Its through bipartisan, commonsense problem solving that we will break through the gridlock and get things done. Those are the values that I have built my career on and its those values I will take to Washington. Overby said, I am working on solutions that would make doing business easier and allow the small business sector to grow. Through tax reform, removal of red tape and clearing the way for small business owners to operate more freely I can help give my community relief from some of their biggest concerns.About the electionThe last day to register to vote in the March 11 special Congressional election or one of the 12 municipal elections is Monday, Feb. 10.

But, Pinellas County staff still predicts that the cost of doing business will outpace the revenue stream. Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala revealed the latest 10year budget forecast during a Jan. 21 work session. LaSala described the forecast as a snapshot in time based on the best economic information available from national, state and local sources. This is the fifth year that county staff has prepared the forecast as a prelude to budget preparations for the next fiscal year. LaSala said the forecast helps identify hurdles and whats coming down the road to assist commissioners with their decision-making. Its a great tool the forecast, he said.Economic projectionsOne of the leading national forecast tools is the Gross Domestic Product, expected to grow by 2.6 to 2.8 percent annually over the next three years, according to Jim Abernathy, senior financial management and budget analyst with the Office of Management and Budget. Staff also uses information from the Florida Estimating Conference, which met in December. Abernathy said the states economy is moving in a positive direction with a renewal of population growth and an upswing in tourism. However, the foreclosure rate continues to raise concerns. Florida had eight of the 10 highest rates for foreclosure markets in the United States with Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando, Palm Bay, Port St. Lucie and Tampa Bay making up the top six. Median sales prices for existing homes are up but still remain more than $50,000 below the bubble induced level of late 2006, the staff report said. Unemployment is another indicator of economic growth. The current unemployment rate of 6.4 percent is well below the peak level of 11.4 percent in February 2010, Abernathy said. The most recent unemployment figure released by the state Jan. 24 showed the unemployment rate down to 6.2 percent in December. Locally, economic growth is expected to remain slower than the states, despite declining unemployment. Pinellas Countys unemployment is the lowest since 2008. But the countys population growth is stagnant. The states population is growing pretty fast, Abernathy said. The county doesnt have room for more population. Still, staff expects sales tax collections to improve in future years. Tourism drives the countys economy with visitors accounting for more than $8.2 billion in sales. Bed tax collections amounted to a record $31.1 million in 2013, 8.2 percent more than 2012. Staff expects tourism to continue to thrive. The local housing market remains depressed, but sales prices are up over last year. Staff said foreclosures would likely increase over the next few years, keeping prices down. Staff presented the forecast for nine key funds: general, emergency medical services, tourist development, transportation trust, capital projects, airport, water, sewer and solid waste.General fund forecastBarry Lupiani, management and budget analyst, explained the forecast for the General Fund. Staff estimates a $3.9 million budget gap for fiscal year 2015 with the gap growing to $40 million by FY 2024. To close the gap, revenue must increase or spending has to go down. Property taxes account for 67 percent of general fund revenue. Staff estimates an increase of about 3 percent in property tax collections for future years. Taxable values are forecast to increase by 3.4 percent in 2014 and 3 percent each year thereafter through 2017. A half-cent sales tax accounts for 9 percent of the general fund budget. Staff predicts a 4 percent increase in sales tax for fiscal years 2015-2017 and 3.5 percent for 2019-2024. Future general fund spending includes annual increases of 4.3 percent for salary and benefits, and general cost inflation of about 2 percent a year. Lupiani said estimates for FY 2014-2015 did not include potential effects of national insurance reform. Any negative impacts from rising flood insurance cost wont affect property values until at least FY 2015-2016. Bottom line, the budget forecast indicates that the current level of service paid for from the general fund is not sustainable, LaSala said. Recommended ways to balance the budget include reducing or eliminating programs; evaluating compensation options, using return on equity for enterprise funds, increasing the millage rate or use of money held in the service level continuation account, which has a current balance of $10.7 million. It will be 20 years before we get back to where we were in gross revenue, LaSala said, admitting that his projection could be off by a few years. He said the burying power of the dollar had been eroded with 20 years of inflation to take into account. LaSala also pointed out that as unemployment drops, pressure on wages would go up and affect the supply and demand of talent. Our ability to keep people we have and need becomes more of a challenging compounded by the retirement of the baby boomers, he said.

Computer aided sex crimes against children is top priority By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri says that adults who use the Internet to lure young children into having sex, is the number one problem in the county, and it must be stopped. Gualtieri was speaking at a news conference on Jan. 27 with Clearwater Police Chief Anthony Holloway where the two men disclosed the details of what they called Operation Home Alone. The sting operation involved a dozen detectives working out of the Clearwater Police Department engaging sexual predators in chat rooms and luring them to several locations in Pinellas County where they were arrested and charged with sex crimes. It was like shooting fish in a barrel, said Holloway. We are going to continue to do everything we can to get them. The operation began on Jan. 23 at 2 p.m. and lasted until 2 a.m. on Jan. 27. Holloway said 12 detectives were manning the phones, and within minutes, they were engaged in conversations with up to 10 people at once, all wanting to find children to have sex with. We really werent prepared for such a large and quick response, Holloway said. If we had 40 detectives, they would all have been busy. During the four days of the operation, detectives from both the sheriffs office and the Clearwater PD arrested 35 suspects. Gaultieri said some of the stories were horrific. One man who was arrested, James King of Tampa, had an ad on Craigslist looking for Family Love. That is code for wanting to have sex with a woman and her children, Gualtieri said. He has a 4-year-old daughter, and he brought her to have sex with an 11and a 14-year-old girl, or so he thought. These are the kind of predators that are out there. Gualtieri said the stories just went on and on as they arrested person after person. Nicholas Demasky of Hudson told us as he was arrested that he couldnt resist the urge anymore, Gualtieri said. He has a computer with child porn on it. Hes a student at USF and get this he wants to be an elementary school teacher. Gualtieri went on. Russell Edwards of St. Petersburg had an ad on Craigslist where he said he wanted to teach young girls to have sex and he was looking for a mother who would hold her daughter down while he did it, Gualtieri said. There was yet another story that Gualtieri found particularly disturbing. Michael Dempsey of Bradenton, whose wife is a nurse and was working, was home with his two daughters, 10 and 12 years old. They were sleeping, Gualtieri said. He left them to drive to Pinellas County on the promise that he was going to have sex with a 14-year-old girl. He was arrested instead. Detectives called his wife to go home and look after the children. The 35 suspects were charged with a number of crimes, which varied from person to person. All, however, were charged with using electronic means to arrange sex with a minor, a third-degree felony, and travelling to have sex with a minor, a second-degree felony. Most of the arrests took place in undisclosed locations in North Pinellas. Chief Holloway said it just shows how important it is for parents to be aware of what their children are doing when they go on the Internet. Parents need to know what their children are up to, Holoway said. They have to make sure their kids dont do it. Gualtieri added to it the fact that in some cases, it is the parents who are helping make these crimes happen. There are three things at play here that are helping the predators, Gualtieri said. There are the children themselves who are on the Internet and get lured into sex by the predators; there are male adults who provide the children for the predators, and there are female adults who do the same thing. It is the scourge of the parents, thats what makes it so bad. He said what the predators are doing today having sex with minors can and does, lead to much more. There are cases of them holding kids and prostituting them out on weekends, Gualtieri said. They are used in the adult entertainment industry, and it amounts to human trafficking. Holloway said one of those who chatted with the detectives claimed to be an uncle who could provide his 14-year-old nephew for sex. He said his department will be relentless in the pursuit of people like that. Next time, maybe well have 20 detectives working on it, he said. Our investigations are ongoing; we might do all this again in an hour. That is a warning that Holloway hopes will discourage the predators from engaging in sex with minors. But Gualtieri doesnt think so. Early this morning, we went back on those websites to see if we had made a difference. We did not. Everything was the same as it was before we started this; every single day girls and boys are engaging in this. Gualtieri said sex with minors has become the number one problem in the county. It used to be prescription drugs, Gualtieri said. But weve got that down to only two known pill mills in the county, and doctor-shopping has dropped off considerably. We now turn our attention to this. The press conference was held at the Clearwater Police Department. Operation Home Alone involved not only the sheriffs office and the Clearwater PD, but also a number of other agencies, all part of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. They included the FBI, the U.S. Air Force, FDLE, the Polk County Sheriffs Office, St. Pete Police Department, the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorneys Office and the Department of Homeland Security.

Police beat Police beatPolice investigating a robbery in Largo Central ParkLARGO Largo police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred in Largo Central Park Jan. 21, shortly before 10:10 p.m. Two males wearing hooded sweatshirts with their faces covered approached a group of three people near one of the shelters at the park that evening, said Largo police spokesman Paul Amodeo. They asked if the group had any marijuana. When they said no, they asked if they had anything in their pockets. One of the suspects then produced a gun and demanded the three empty their pockets, Amodeo said. The two suspects stole some items. They were seen running east across Fourth Street Northeast and down First Avenue Northeast, Amodeo said. A K-9 unit tracked the suspects but was not able to find them. The suspects are described as black males, wearing dark pants along with the hooded sweatshirts. One wore a black jacket and the other had a black shirt wrapped around his lower face, the victims told police.

The robbery occurred at the Subway at 2655 East Bay Drive Nov. 20, at around 3:35 p.m. Surveillance video from the scene captured the suspect robbing the employee before he fled the scene, said Largo police spokesman Paul Amodeo. A picture from the video was posted at the Largo Police Departments Facebook page and shared at least 14 times. A tip from the community led detectives to Cody Zirbes. However, Zirbes kept eluding police once they established probable cause. Then, Detective Brendan Arlington discovered that Zirbes was scheduled to work at Sportscasters Bar and Grill in Largo on Jan. 21 at 7 p.m., according to a city email announcing the arrest. The departments Problem Oriented Policing unit arrested Zirbes. He was evasive during an initial Cody Zirbes See POLICE, page 7A

However, Detective Bill Magnuson questioned him about a case of felony fraud in which he reportedly let someone use his EBT card, Amodeo said. During that interview, he confessed to the Subway robbery, the department reported. Zirbes was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on felony charges of robbery, strong-arm robbery and fraud.Clearwater man sentenced to 10 yearsTAMPA A 24-year-old Clearwater man was sentenced to 10 years and 10 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute 28 grams or more of crack cocaine in a case investigated by Largo police. Keire Terrell Harvey pleaded guilty to the charge Oct. 15. Recently, U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington sentenced him, according to a press release released Jan. 13. Between June 2 and July 19 last year, Harvey sold crack cocaine to an undercover Largo Police Department detective on five occasions, according to court documents. He was arrested July 29 when he showed up at a location to sell more crack cocaine to an undercover detective. At the time, he reportedly had 32.8 grams of crack cocaine to sell. Largo Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated this case, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez prosecuted it. Keire Terrell HarveyEmergency medical services fundVeronica Ettel, senior financial management and budget analyst, presented the forecast for emergency medical services. The EMS fund is not in balance, she said. The budget forecast shows a gap of $3.4 million in FY 2015 with reserves down to 25 percent below the amount required by Commission policy. If nothing changes, the reserve fund would be gone by FY 2018. Millage rate increases would be needed to provide the same level of services. Staff is counting on implementing a consultants recommendations to alleviate the strain on the EMS budget. LaSala said staff was working on translating the Fitch report and would bring recommendations to the commission on Feb. 4. He said after receiving direction, staff would begin work with municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services. The contract with Paramedics Plus to operate the Sunstar ambulance service expires in 2014. It can be extended to 2015. The contract will go out for bid in 2016. The budget forecast includes a 4 percent increase for ambulance service. First responder costs are expected to go up by 5 percent.Transportation trust fundAnother problem spot is the transportation trust fund. Lyn Katare, management and budget analyst, told the commission that the fund is not in balance beginning in FY 2015 and projections show that the fund will run dry by FY 2019. Reasons include rising costs and decreasing revenues due to more fuel-efficient vehicles, Katare said. The budget gap increases in FY 2017 when the local option gas tax expires, unless the commission votes to continue the tax. She said to balance the budget, the commission might have to subsidize transportation with money from the general fund or reduce service.Other fundsLinda Benoit, management and budget analyst, said the water and funds would remain balanced as long as approved 2 percent rate increases continued annually through FY 2015. She said a new rate study would begin this year and a consultant would make recommendations to keep the funds in balance through future years. The solid waste fund also is in balance, although solid waste tipping fees and electricity sales have declined due to the slow economy. Bill Berger, interim director of the Office of Management and Budget, said the capital projects fund would remain in balance as long as staff effectively managed the timing of projects. Plans also include the use of interfund loans from the solid waste fund to address short-term shortfalls. Berger said the forecast did not assume renewal of Penny for Pinellas, which expires in 2020. He said if voter did not approve the tax for future years, money for infrastructure would have to come from the general fund.Budget processBerger talked about potential impacts to the forecast including new federal or state mandates, impact of flood insurance on property values, property tax exemptions, Save Our Homes impact, slower than expected economic growth, changes in the frequency and intensity of storms, utility rate increase and reauthorization of the penny, tourist and gas taxes. The outcome of the referendum on Greenlight Pinellas transportation tax also is on the list. The Office of Management and Budget officially kicks off the budget season Feb. 7. County departments must submit strategic plans by Feb. 28. Public budget information sessions begin on April 17 with an update on strategic initiatives. Independent agencies will present their budgets on April 24. Constitutional Officers have until May 1 to submit their budgets with budget information session scheduled on May 15 and 22. On June 12, a budget information session will cover the capital improvement program, and user fees for water, sewer and surface water.

Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, this concept has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated $17,500 to local organizations.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563I was still very cold in St. Augustine early on the 14th day of Christmas, as I edited this Florida Perspectives column. Scanning the Weather Channel website, even Tampa, my new other favorite Florida city, registered in the upper mid-30s. But, as the warm-up continues, its my good fortune to be a native of the Sunshine State, aka Paradise. I doubt that those residents with allegiance to The Florida State University noticed the cold at all on Monday or Tuesday nights or, even this morning. Theyre still celebrating their season-ending joy winning the BCS National Championship in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on Twelfth Night. I am sure that the most-worn apparel on flights outbound Tuesday to Florida screamed garnet and gold. And, I say that while proudly wearing my Florida Gators orange and blue. (We will get back there, Gators, eventually). But, today is not about gridiron championships. Its about the start of the second season for public school students. Competition in the classroom heats up student by student, grade by grade, school by school, county by county. Its the season of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, aka FCAT. In late February, FCAT Writing tests are given. Mid-April to early May, its FCAT testing in reading, math and science. FCAT results are high-stakes competition for students, teachers, and administrators. St. Johns County School Superintendent Joe Joyner knows that. This district has been Number One overall or, shared the honor, this past decade. (Given the districts success, we know why Joyner was a potential lieutenant governor candidate last fall. Wisely, he thanked Gov. Rick Scott for the honor but declined further consideration.) In his weekly report to educators, parents and the general public, Joyner noted the upcoming testing. As is customary following the winter break, we will now focus on academic progress leading up to testing and assessment for all grades, he said. This culminates with opportunities for our students to show the skills and knowledge that they have acquired throughout the entire year. I encourage you to make note of district-wide testing dates on the 2013-2014 Master Calendar to ensure that you can plan and help your child prepare for success! If you havent heard the testing message in your own district, or missed it, check for yourself. Student success starts at home. Strong parental support for learning, a good nights sleep and a good breakfast for the students counts heavily. Business operators, who employ students, should also take note when it comes to their work schedules. Student success is our responsibility, because it reflects on their futures, our teachers and our schools.Margo C. Pope is a former editorial page editor of The St. Augustine Record.LETTERS The sad decline of TIME magazineDo you remember what TIME magazine used to be like? I do, but Im older than most Americans. That means I can recall when journalism stood for providing information, much more than entertainment or titillation. In 1959, in Rome, I was with some students from Syracuse University. One of them said, Over here, I cant get my weekly copy of TIME. How am I gonna know what to think? Many Americans felt the same way. Even if you didnt agree with TIMEs moderately right-wing position on issues, you could feel that after spending an hour or two with the latest issue of TIME you were up to date on most of the major national and world news stories. TIME had correspondents scattered throughout the world. Publisher Henry Luce was a force to be reckoned with. Each week TIME furnished its readers with reams of content, i.e., words and sentences. It also supplied photos and artwork that complemented the stories without overwhelming them. The magazine seemed to be aimed at intelligent, concerned adults. Over the past half-century, that has changed. I wont bore you with a detailed chronology. Ill just describe some aspects of recent TIME issues. On the plus side, you can still find a few detailed, well-written stories about important public figures and vital problems the USA and the rest of the world are grappling with. The Jan. 20 issue featured a cover story on Janet Yellen, the incoming chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve system and the first woman ever to hold that job. Another story dealt with the resurgence of Iraqs Al-Qaeda forces. There was a guest column by a Christian-magazine editor about end-of-life decisions that often must be made for or by critically ill persons. Columnist Joe Klein (probably the main reason I still subscribe to TIME) wrote about income inequality. The rest of the issue contained a scattering of brief stories that might be described as significant. Or not. Im no authority on magazine publishing, but it seems to me that every serious news journal has at least two or three crucial decisions to make for each issue. (1) Which stories do we choose to run? (2) How much space do we give to each story? (3) How do we display the magazines total content news, photos, advertisements, headlines? Today TIMEs weekly decisions on those matters baffle me. With only a limited amount of room in each issue, how can the editors justify devoting a two-page spread in the Jan. 20 issue to the photo of an infant being lifted from the rubble of a recent air attack in Damascus? A similar profligate use of precious space was a full-page inside photo of Janet Yellen (whom we had already seen on the cover), facing an opposite page whose total content was forty superfluous words whose message could have been captured in a single paragraph of running text. In the Culture section we were treated to not just one, but two full-page photos of Hollywood celebrity Spike Jonze. To which any thinking reader might cry out, Why? A twoinch mug shot would have done the same job, thus freeing up room for a thousand words of text. TIMEs philosophy of space allocation can be seen in the squeentsy semi-agate art captions that practically shout to subscribers past age 70, If you cant read this tiny type, the hell with you. Young people can, and they have the most money. Theyre the ones our advertisers want to reach. The worst example of space allocation in the Jan. 20 issue was a five-page spread on an exercise program called Crossfit something all America has been begging to learn about, dont you know? After thumbing through the issues inexplicable mish-mash, I asked myself, Why do you subscribe to TIME? I have no ready answer. I can get most of the news I need from The Week magazine, the Internet, and other easily available sources. Several mornings each week, as I wake up, I reach out for my Kindle. I switch it on and, for 50 cents or a buck, order the days edition of the Boston Globe, New York Times or Tampa Bay Times. A few seconds later Im awash in news from around the world. In fairness to the people who write and publish TIME, I must concede that dozens of good reasons may exist for the many changes to the once-worshipped magazine. In any age, the news business is a shifting, competitive, dog-eat-dog way to earn a buck while staying alive. High on the list of any publications headaches is the unpredictable nature of the publics preferences. Plus columns like this one, whining and kvetching because life aint like it used to be.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Kudos to music that gives us pauseIt was a time when great songwriters told us about tin soldiers and Nixon coming and reminded us that the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls. Whether putting flowers in gun barrels helped change the world in the 1960s is debatable, but the messages in the music of those turbulent times sent powerful messages, gave us pause. And that music still does. In a daydream, I wondered whats happened to protest music and songs that spoke about social consciousness. Certainly, world events continue to cry for more of such works the U.S. government shutdown, instability in the Middle East, war in Afghanistan, Edward Snowden, among other issues. I dont hear it, at least not on my radio stations. Flash back to the s and s. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, among my favorite musical groups, gave us Ohio, about the killing and wounding of students by soldiers during an antiwar protest at Kent State University. Along those lines is Chicago, written by Graham Nash in response to Mayor Richard Daleys shameful handling of riots during the Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968 and other issues. I always liked Credence Clearwater Revivals Fortunate Son, an anti-Vietnam War song critical of class discrepancies. The song was played during a war scene in the movie Forrest Gump and fit nicely onto the soundtrack.We had Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Remember the Eve of Destruction? It was made famous by Barry McGuire, who performed rock, folk and contemporary Christian music. John Lennons Imagine, with its enduring theme of peace and love, is listed as No. 3 on Rolling Stones 500 greatest songs of all time. Im sure youve heard it. Didnt check to see if any music by his other half, Yoko Ono, made the list, though. My favorite songwriter is Paul Simon. The works of Simon and Garfunkel in the 1960s are unsurpassed in their themes about the downtrodden, dispossessed and neglected, such as the Sound of Silence. Who can forget the classic verse from the song Mrs. Robinson: Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio? Yes, hes gone, but Im glad Paul Simon is still around. In the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen, Born in the USA, and U2, Sunday, Bloody Sunday, produced some stirring protest songs. Also one of my favorites is Midnight Oils Beds are Burning, a song about giving native Australian lands back to the Pintupi, who were among the very last people to come in from the desert, according to the website SongFacts. Im hard pressed to think of any renowned songs inspired by war, politics or other significant issues that were produced in the last decade. A cursory search on the Internet gave some insight. This, from New York Times music writer James C. McKinley Jr. in 2011, capsulizes my line of thinking: So far, musicians living through the biggest economic disaster since the Great Depression have filled the airwaves with songs about dancing, not the worries of working people, he wrote. Is it because the great icons of dissent from bygone eras are too far removed from current forms of expression and communication to make an impact on the current generation of songwriters? Folk singers have been revered for their social commentary, such as Pete Seeger, the author of Where Have All the Flowers Gone, and Turn, Turn, Turn. But Seegers era, the 1950s, is long past. Perhaps, too, many of us as true of any generation are reluctant to embrace newer forms of music. Im about as flexible as Stonehenge. However, while searching for articles about recent examples of provocative protest music, I came across rap artist Pharoahe Monchs tribute song to Trayvon Martin called Stand Your Ground, an effort to repeal the law used to protect George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Martin. Kudos to Monch, known as a socially conscious musician, for delivering what Huffpost Live calls a potent, hard song that decries the verdict through a sound somewhere between punk rock and hip-hop. Whether I agree with the verdict in the case is immaterial here. What I applaud is any artists earnest attempt to help bring about change or at least make us think. Hail to musicians who write songs that dare to disturb the sound of silence.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tger mond@TBNweekly.com.

Margo Pope Student success starts at home Tom Germond Drivers SeatBob Driver An aberration of historical factsRe: Editorial cartoon, Jan. 23.Editor: The Star of David prominently placed in the heavens with a dedication to Ariel Sharon 1928-2014 was meant by the cartoonist to celebrate the life of General and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. There are a number of Jewish academicians who agree that Sharon is the man responsible for destroying any hope of a viable Palestinian state with the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages and with the introduction of Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands, ergo, sabotaging any peace treaty between representatives of all Palestinians and of all Israelis. Sharons military incursion into Beirut allowed the massacre by Lebanese Christians of over one thousand Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila camps of southern Beirut in September of 1982. He was found indirectly guilty by an Israeli Commission. These famous academicians are: Prof. Ilan Pappe and Prof. Avi Shlaim (two Israeli historians), Prof. Noam Choamsky, Prof. Norman Finkelstein, and Prof. John J. Mearsheimer, educators and authors all. To praise Sharon as a shining star is an aberration of historical facts which the cartoonist should have known. Arthur Hebert LargoHeed words of Lawrence of ArabiaEditor: I fear the muted din echoing in the distance is emanating once more from the drums of war being beat by those urging Americas military involvement in the mid-East. With this in mind it seemed an opportune moment to revisit an article I wrote which was printed elsewhere a few years ago. The message is still pertinent today, and perhaps even more so in view of the fact we still find ourselves bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan with no real satisfactory conclusion in sight. In my letter I cautioned against ignoring the lessons of history when making decisions, especially when those decisions involve military commitment. In order to add emphasis and lend authority to my message I quoted a chillingly prescient article written by Col. T.E. Lawrence. It was sent from Arabia and subsequently published in the London Times in 1920. Quoting the author he wrote, The people of England have been led in Iraq into a trap from which it is hard to escape with dignity and honor. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. Today, we are not far from disaster. The writer then went on to explain the difficulty of trying to impose western style democracy on nations to whom the concept itself was foreign, and which in many instances violated their religious beliefs. Taking liberty here, it is my contention he was including in this admonition all Arab and Muslim nations. Resuming the quote he went on to argue, How long will we permit millions of pounds, thousands of troops and tens of thousands of Arabs to be sacrificed on behalf of a colonial administration which can benefit nobody but its administration? It is fair to say in view of what has transpired in the past few years that Lawrence of Arabia knew that of which he spoke. Unfortunately, we (Americans) have turned a deaf ear to his message, or for that matter to the messages of anyone proffering similar arguments in protest of our actions. Will we ever learn to listen, or more importantly, listen to learn? Robert A. Shaw Madeira Beach

Rolston has spent her entire career adding potential to the lives of children, first with the Pinellas County School District and then at Big Brothers Big Sisters. She joined the agency in March of 2001. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the board members and executive staff by working together to enrich the lives of children who need us the most, Rolston shared in her retirement announcement to her staff members. Rolston will leave the agency with a scholarship endowment for graduating Littles, designed to help combat generational poverty. Over the past decade, the agency has accomplished substantial growth in the number of children served under Rolstons leadership, from 400 in 2001 to 1,433 in 2013. Being recognized locally and nationally as an evidence-based social service nonprofit that provides high quality mentoring to children is extremely rewarding, Rolston stated. Reaching that level of achievement in the midst of diversifying revenue sources was a satisfying, yet aggressive challenge. As a champion for children living in adversity, Rolston expects to stay engaged with local programs and activities that will give children in need the opportunity for a better life. Dave Fox, president of Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors and senior vice president of Manufacturing & Advertiser Content at ValPak, thanked Rolston for her leadership on behalf of the board of directors. Susans legacy will continue to further the agency under the steadfast direction of the strong team established during her years of service, he said.

Susan RolstonJotos Pizza celebrates four decades of pizza, family and community By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE In 1973, Fred and Carol Zinda, with their two young daughters in tow, sold all of their belongings and left behind their friends and family in rural Wisconsin to open a pizza franchise in Pinellas County. As a testament to mom-and-pop chains everywhere, Jotos Pizza celebrated 40 years in businessJan. 25 and 26.Early yearsAt 31, Fred had a steady job working in a paper mill; Carol, then 28, was a legal secretary. Neither of them had any experience in the restaurant business. But their friends, a Michigan couple theyd met while on their honeymoon in 1966, had recently relocated to Orlando to open a Crustys Pizza franchise. They couldnt believe how much money they were making, Carol said. Pizza began to really take off in the 1960s, she said. Until then, it wasnt very popular. But by the time the Zindas considered opening a pizza joint of their own in the early 1970s, it had become the number one food in the country. So they headed south in 1973, landing in Pinellas Park, where they rented a mobile home and opened a Crustys Pizza on 49th Avenue. When they arrived in September of that year, Pinellas Park businesses were facing a moratorium on construction. So their grand opening, originally planned for October, was delayed. Those first few months were the toughest of their lives, Carol said. Most nights, shed cry herself to sleep she was so homesick. They lived off their savings while Fred traveled to the Orlando Crustys for on-the-job training as they waited for their own stores grand opening. We had to sell everything to move, she said. We went into debt to open this franchise. It was pure hell at first. We couldnt afford groceries. We survived on our menu items. They eventually opened on Jan. 22, 1974. They made only $60 that first day, Carol said. But slowly, as the Zindas planted roots in the community, the business grew. In 1977, they decided to break away from the Michigan-based franchise. For the royalties [Crustys] got from us, we werent getting enough back from them in return, Carol said. They really werent supportive. So the couple founded Jotos, the name a combination of their daughters first names: Tori and Jodi. We had to come up with our own recipes for sauce and dough, Carol said. We still use them today.Jotos expandsThe Zindas didnt let their inexperience hold them back. Even though we didnt know anything about the business, said Fred. We were very people-oriented. This was the key to their success and the driving force behind their growth. In 1982, the couple opened up its Seminole location. The following year, they expanded to Gulfport, on 15th Avenue and 58th Street South. In 1999 came a second Pinellas Park location, in the Bayou Center on Belcher Road. Several years later, in 2003, eager to take advantage of the beach traffic, they opened a Jotos on West Bay Drive. They also expanded their menu over the years as well. In 1977, their first menu only included two subs and one pizza, Fred said. Today, their menu lists dozens of items, as well as a separate childrens menu. And in order to keep up with bigger chains, Jotos was forced to evolve the way it conducted business. It wasnt long before the chain delivered orders to customers doors, accepted credit cards and sold pizza by the slice. Fred said, Over the years, we realized when in Rome, you do as the Romans do. You have to go with the changes.A family affairToday their family only owns two Jotos the one in Seminole and the Bayou Center location, the lone survivors, Carol said. A third Jotos on 49th Avenue in Pinellas Park, mere blocks from the original location, is still open, but was sold to a former employee in the late 1980s. The economy hit us pretty hard, said the Zindas daughter Jodi Whitcomb. But these two are still going strong. She doesnt rule out Jotos opening new restaurants as the economy improves. In the past decade, her parents, who now live in North Redington Beach, have stepped back from the business, while Jodi; her husband, Steve Whitcomb; sister, Tori Thrower; and brother-in-law, Brent Thrower run the show. A CPA who worked for the city of Largo, Jodi seamlessly stepped in to fill her mothers shoes, taking over bookkeeping for the company. It made sense for Steve and Brent, both with a sales background, to each manage one restaurant. And Tori, who taught at Dale Mabry Elementary School and Skyview Elementary School, assists with day-to-day operations and major decisions at Jotos. From day one, the Zindas intended to create a family environment, not only to attract customers but also to build a legacy. Its always been my dream that we can keep this going, that it would stay in the family, Fred said. But he didnt want to drive [his daughters] into it, he said. They did their own thing, Carol said. When they were ready they joined the family business. We grew up in it, Jodi said. As teens, she and her sister worked their way through the ranks, from dishwasher to food prep to waitressing. Now, the familys third generation has joined the Jotos team. Jodis 16-year-old daughter, Harley, recently started working as a waitress. Shes the first of the grandchildren to work for Jotos, but Fred hopes she isnt the last. I hope the legacy keeps going, he said. The Zindas embraced their new home immediately, giving back to the community from the very beginning, sponsoring Jimmy Cope, a legendary local racecar driver who competed at Sunshine Speedway and donating pizzas to school functions, such as its Fall Festival. Jotos also has raised over $300,000 for All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg. I cant believe its been 40 years, Carol said. It really is a milestone for mom and pops to last in todays world.

The proposed sales tax holiday would begin June 1 and run through June 14. It would cover hurricane preparation supplies, such as flashlights, batteries, weather radios, and other basic items that are essential to building a disaster supply kit. Scott said, This 15-day sales tax holiday will help Florida families prepare for hurricane season and let them keep more than $20 million. This tax holiday will allow families to better protect and safeguard their homes during a storm. The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. For more information, visit www.FloridaDisaster.org. Bryan W. Koon, director of the Florida Director of Emergency Management said, All Floridians should take this opportunity to restock their disaster supply kits and develop emergency plans for their families and businesses. By taking the time to prepare today, we can work together to save lives and property in the event of a disaster. Rick McAllister, president and CEO of the Florida Retail Federation said, Floridians have learned many times that we must always be prepared to be self-reliant in the event of a major storm. A tax break is a great way to make readiness supplies more affordable for families, and the sales tax holiday will be a good opportunity for retailers to help raise awareness of the need for Floridas residents to be ready for storms and other emergencies. David Hart, Executive Vice President, Florida Chamber of Commerce said, Having a plan and being prepared makes all the difference when it comes to weathering a storm in Florida. Governor Scotts hurricane sales tax holiday will encourage more Floridians to prepare for future storms, and it will go a long way towards ensuring Floridians are safe. Governor Scotts hurricane sales tax holiday proposal is a win for Florida families and a win for Floridas small businesses.

(305) 923-4153011614 More than just a day at the zooMom takes a revitalizing day to reconnect with her daughtersAs I watched my two little girls ages 8 and 9 circling around on the Jungle Carousel at the Lowry Park Zoo, I had a thought: Can a day get any better than this? It was such an indescribable feeling, sitting there watching my daughters have fun and not worrying about anything else. The girls were so excited when I said we were going to go to Lowry Park Zoo. They couldnt wait because they hadnt been there in years and loved seeing all of the animals. I couldnt wait because it brought back memories of me taking them when they were younger. It reminded me of days when we could just get in the van and go on a whim. This was before we had restrictions like school and work. Since the girls were babies, two of my favorite places for a day trip were Lowry Park Zoo and Busch Gardens. I think the reason we liked these two attractions was because we love animals, and because we could travel there in less than an hour. I love going to the zoo, because you dont have to pay to park, and the admission price is reasonable. Since the last time we went, they even included most of the rides for free; in the past you had to pay for each ride. We would go to Busch Gardens because they had a preschool pass program where kids could get in free until they were 5 years old. I loved walking them in their stroller. It was great exercise! As they got older, they would walk. Now they run! Our recent trip just brought back so many wonderful memories. Not only memories of the zoo itself, but the people who shared the experiences with us. While we were driving there, we thought about all the different people who went with us, including grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. I realized so many times as parents, we get caught up in our everyday lives. I know I do. Even at the zoo, my phone went off with a text from work. Of course, I started texting back immediately, but youll never guess what happened. My battery that was charged just died. The phone just stopped working. I couldnt text back. I knew it was a sign that I needed to not be thinking about work and re-focus back on why I was there. We need to take time and have quality time with our kids. I needed to do this without distractions. My kids missed that, and I did too. I probably missed it more than them. My kids and I had a blast. The weather was one of Floridas gorgeous sunny days, but not too hot just right in temperature. Even though the parking lot was full, the zoo wasnt crowded. We were able to see everything we wanted to see and not have to wait too long for anything. The only ride we waited more than 20 minutes was the Expedition Africa Guided Safaris, which is an 18-minute tour of the animals on a trolley. On the other rides, like the Jungle Carousel and the Tasmanian Tiger Family Roller Coaster, the waits were minimal. The fun part was going on these rides with the girls. Yes, I even went on the roller coaster, and I am not one for roller coasters. I asked my girls what the best part of the day was and they said they couldnt pick just one part. They said everything was great! I had to agree. For me this day refreshed and revitalized me as a mom and built on the good memories I already have with my daughters.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

In fact in Dunedin they come from a spot along the causeway. Take a drive and you will see budding Olympic sailors working out every weekend. They have been doing it for several years and who knows one or more of them might be participating in the next Summer Olympics in 2016. The athletes training on the causeway are being coached by Robbie Daniel, 51, himself an Olympic class sailor who came within a hair of participating in two different Olympics in the late 1990s and during the last decade. He said it was a lot of work for him and a lot of work for the students who are learning from him now. It winds up being nearly a full time job, he said. There is all manner of training to do, not just with the boats, but also physical training. Those boats are pretty physical so you have to be fit. It is part of the training. It is at an elite level. It doesnt matter what sport it is; there is so much detail and it makes you a better athlete. Daniels Olympic sailing career really began when he was 12 years old and began racing competitively. He progressed through the system and ultimately took part in four Olympic campaigns. A Campaign is a four-year regimen that takes place between Olympics and it ends with trials and races to determine who the U.S. Olympic Sailing Committee chooses to represent the country at the Olympics. Daniel came close on two occasions. Twice I finished second in the last race, he said. Going into it I was tied, I still had a chance in the last race to win the selection. Daniel said the pain of not winning after four years of such hard work, wasnt as bad as he imagined. I was obviously disappointed, but you are kind of prepared for that all along, he said. Obviously, you are disappointed and heart broken, but it was not as devastating as I thought it would be. Right after the race you have to begin to pack up and get ready to go home and get on with life so that helped me not to dwell on it so much. It was around that time that Daniel began coaching and hes been at it ever since. His wife, Jill Nickerson, 54, is also his partner in the business, Red Deer Racing. She said when a young sailor comes to them for more advanced training it is quite a shock. Most kids are used to racing what we call Optis, boats designed for them and it is exciting for young kids. But after a while they get bored and some of them leave sailing, she said. We try to capture them and introduce them on an F-16 class boat which is bigger and faster. It is like a rocket ship by comparison and the kids get an adrenaline rush and say it is over the top. We have yet to get a kid on an F-16 that doesnt get off the water and say it was fabulous. It was a rush. The actual Olympic sailing boats are N-17s. Reed Deer Racing operates both and it isnt cheap. The N-17 costs anywhere from $31,000 to $33,000 and the F-16 costs about $20,000, said Nickerson. We really dont have a choice of what we buy. If you are going to train for the Olympics then you have to do it in boats approved by them. The boats are multi-hulled; they are catamarans, Hobie-cats. Nickerson said the sailing competition in the upcoming Summer Olympics has been changed and she said it is for the better, that there is now a level playing field. They took sailing out of the last Olympics but now it is back in, she said. The difference is that this time they have dictated that there must be a mixed crew, a male and a female. So everybody is starting out with a clean slate. There is no Olympic history with mixed crews. Training mixed crews is what Daniel is doing on the Causeway. One of his students is Sarah Streater, 18, a senior in high school in FortExtension offers landscape services certification classesLARGO Anyone providing landscape services in Pinellas County must complete Best Management Practices training and obtain a vehicle decal for landscape maintenance per Pinellas County fertilizer and landscaping ordinance #10-06. This requirement includes all employees who use mowers, edgers, leaf blowers or other landscaping equipment. The requirement also includes tree service employees. Pinellas County waters are experiencing a decline in water quality as a result of excess nutrient loading through stormwater runoff. Nutrients from fertilizers and landscape debris are major contributors to water pollution. Pinellas County is dedicated to addressing water pollution throughout the county, and education of the industry service professionals is key to improving water quality in Pinellas County and Tampa Bay. The Pinellas County Extension offers Landscape BMP certification classes monthly. Classes are offered in English and in Spanish. The class cost is $15. To see a class schedule and register for a class session, visit www.LandscapeBMP.eventbrite.com. For more information about the countywide fertilizer and landscape maintenance ordinance, visit www.pinellascounty.org/fertilizer or call 464-4425. Spanish speakers needing assistance with registration can call 464-4605. Lauderdale. She makes the four-hour drive to Dunedin every weekend to train. It is crazy but it is a lot of fun, she said. There are great sailors in this class and it is lots of fun to compete against top sailors. Streater has been sailing with Matthew Whitehead, 21, a USF student from Panama City. She feels they have the chemistry they need to be successful. We have been sailing together for a while, she said. The last time we competed together we placed second, he is my main crew. Their goal? Predictably, the Olympics. Im planning on trying for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, said Streater. Hopefully we can be the top USA boat and then go and win a medal. Do we have a realistic chance? I think so. We are a top team right now and we feel good about competing against other teams. Daniel agrees it is a good goal to have, but wonders if it might not be a bit premature. The goal to make the Olympics is possible, anything is possible, he said. You have to start off with that attitude, realistically they should be shooting for the 2020 games, but none of these guys want to do that, they want it now, four years is a long time for them. As for his own Olympic aspirations, Daniel said they are probably over. I have it in me to have another go at it, he said. But you have to look at what makes sense. It is a lot of money; you have to find a way to pay for it all. Im more focused on coaching and making a living. Olympic campaigning doesnt do anything but cost you money. Daniel said he is encouraged that the U.S. Olympic Committee has begun to fund his sport more than it ever did before. Despite the fact that he likely wont compete for an Olympic spot anymore, Daniel says he has no intention of giving up sailing, ever. I love being out there and the competition, he said. I can combine the joy of sailing with the joy of helping others enjoy sailing as much as they can. His methods must be working. Take it from Streater, one of his students. Robbie is a good coach, I absolutely love Robbie coaching, she said. I learn something every day. Hes a great sailor and whatever you can get out of him will make you great. I learn so much just being with him. Photo by BRIAN GOFFCoach Robbie Daniel shows student Sarah Streater some of the finer points of Olympic sailing at his facility on the Dunedin Causeway.Hoping for a weather changeWhile good fishing days remain few and far between, the optimistic angler might just get lucky and find some hungry fish on one of those seemingly rare in between cold front days. With the jet stream firmly entrenched just to our north and an arctic vortex creating extreme cold conditions that we havent seen since 2010, you have to believe that with a little luck this current trend is a weather anomaly that could easily change over the next couple of weeks. Inshore, water temperatures plummeted to 52 degrees late last week. When it gets that cold you really need to slow down or even stop your presentation. Working channel edges with scented soft-plastics can bring steady action from schools of hungry ladyfish. Turning those fresh caught ladyfish into cut bait for redfish and the occasional gator trout can turn an otherwise tough day into a quality fish day. Finding a lee-side shoreline can be tough on a north wind, but they do exist. Targeting the low mid-afternoon tide is your best bet, the water has warmed a bit and the fish are holding over the outer edges of the flats that are laden with large stretches of sand that intertwine with sparse grass patches. Fish seem to feed well in this scenario and it may only last for a couple of hours. Fanning out multiple rods with medium sized chunks of ladyfish will allow you to work a large area. Near shore, light tackle bottom fishing slowed down a bit but was still good this past weekend despite cold water temperatures. Calm conditions made for easy runs out a couple of miles for mixed bag action for grunts, sheepshead, and hogfish. Targeting hard bottom in 20 to 40 feet of water with live shrimp on a knocker rig with a 1-ounce sinker is a great way to put some fish in the cooler. Seatrout as well as silver trout can be found just off area beaches right now. Anglers fishing Redington pier have been catching both species consistently for a couple of weeks now. Fishing at night with glow colored soft plastic jigs will produce good numbers of adult seatrout. The daytime action consists primarily of silver trout, which can be caught on brightly colored soft plastics. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

The events of this long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.That Awkward MomentGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Imogen Poots, Mackenzie Davis and Jessica Lucas Director: Tom Gormican Rated: R Zac Efron, Michael B.

Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller) are living a carefree single life in New York City when their best friend Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) learns his wife wants a divorce. In a show of support, the three longtime buddies promise each other that they will avoid commitment at all costs and stay single together, but their plans are derailed when Mikey starts to surreptitiously date his ex, and Jason and Daniel unexpectedly fall in love. Soon each man finds himself at the most crucial point in a relationship, a moment when so becomes the most terrifying word in the English language.The following will open in limited release.

A series of unexpected adventures including, getting kicked out of a strip club, being mugged and getting pummeled by the Las Vegas reigning gelatin-wrestling champion, Veronica, rip them from the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip and places them smack dab in Vegas seedy underbelly. Determined to keep their bachelorette party dreams alive, the girls band together and embark on the wildest night in bachelorette party history. Fueled by sex and booze, this raunchy, riotously hilarious, outof-control, blowout is, for better or worse, all caught on tape. And is destined to go down as the Best Night Ever.Tims VermeerGenre: Documentary Director: Raymond Joseph Teller Rated: PG-13 Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenisons adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.At MiddletonGenre: Romance Cast: Andy Garcia, Vera Farmiga, Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Nicholas Braun, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt Director: Adam Rodgers Rated: R Academy Award nominees Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga star as straight-laced George and eccentric Edith, two strangers who meet on their childrens campus tour at the idyllic Middleton College. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. But what begins as anOpening this weekend afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever. A light-hearted romance for adults on the surface, At Middleton is a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

PETERSBURG Yonder Mountain String Band will bring its winter tour to the Tampa Bay area Friday, Jan. 31, 8 p.m., performing at Jannus Live, 16 Second St. N. Tickets are $23.50. Call 5650550 or visit www.jannuslive.com. Blending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own, according to their bio provided by Paradigm Talent Agency. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but theyve created their own music that transcends any genre. The Colorado-based foursome has crisscrossed the country for more than a decade now playing such varied settings as festivals, rock clubs, Red Rocks Amphitheater in the bands home state, and event the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The bands loyal fan base has been built from this diverse setting of music venues as fans latched on to their genre-defying original sound. In between tours, the band spent time working on its fifth studio album. The Show, released in 2009, is their second album with rock producer Tom Rothrock. While some might scratch their heads as to why a string band would want a rock producer, this decision was a natural choice for the band. We dont have a lot of nostalgia for the past, said banjo player Dave Johnston in a press release. You shouldnt try to recreate the 1940s. I like to think of us as informed by the past and all the great performers before us. But we also want to look forward rather than give people something that has already been perfected. The Show has the similar acoustic instrumentation Adam Aijala on guitar, Johnston on banjo, Jeff Austin on mandolin and Ben Kaufman on bass with all four singing as many of its classic bluegrass forefathers. The record consists of 13 songs all written by Yonder. The band has long cited such varied influences as the bluegrass of Del McCoury, Johnson Mountain Boys, Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe, Osborne Brothers as well as the punk rock of Bad Religion, Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys. Somewhere in between these two tent poles are early 20th century composers and alternative rock bands like Grandaddy and Postal Service. Its all funneled through the bands unique chemistry, honed since they first met at an informal club performance in 1998. Joining Yonder Mountain String Band will be The Travelin McCourys, featuring Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle and Alan Bartram on bass along with featured guests on guitar and vocals. According to the bands bio provided by Crossover Touring, The Travelin McCourys is the latest incarnation of the most awarded band in the history of bluegrass The Del McCoury Band. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie and Rob continue their fathers work a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into peoples lives. Based in tradition the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful but they also bring something fresh and rejuvenating to the stage. The band has a confidence that comes with having paid their dues with 20 years on the bluegrass road.Photo by JAY BLAKESBERG/PARADIGM TALENT AGENCYJannus Live welcomes Yonder Mountain String Band, above, and The Travelin McCourys, below, for a performance Jan. 31.

The discussion began when Tanya Pistillo, organizer of the new Ulmer Park Market, asked commissioners for their support of the market during their meeting Jan. 21. We started out with a mere five vendors. This past month, we jumped up to 19. And Im already booking into April, she said. Nearby residents have appreciated the activity in their neighborhood and have even requested more events in Ulmer Park, which sits in the center of the West Bay Drive redevelopment district. But hosting the new monthly market has not been cheap. I would love to have more city backing, maybe waiving some fees, some sort of agreements we can come to not have to worry about the fees so I can carry on doing these events, bringing the community out of their homes, getting them downtown, getting them to realize more businesses exist downtown, Pistillo said. Market-goers have asked for produce vendors to be a part of the market, she added. But that would require the market to be open on a weekly basis, not just second Saturdays. Kimberly Platt, owner of the Charlie Tulums Taco Shack and Dos Tacos Food Truck, said the market has been great advertising for her new taco business, which opened in Largo three months ago. She too was in favor of bringing produce to Ulmer Park. I try to take (the taco truck) to the markets and actually purchase my food directly from vendors there and then cook that on the truck, Platt said. I would love to be able to do that here. Commissioners discussed the issue later in the meeting. Largo has had markets at Ulmer Park before, but the operation was moved to the Largo Community Center. Commissioner Harriet Crozier said she had been under the impression the city-operated market was meant to be a weekly endeavor. We dont have the staff we used to have, Mayor Pat Gerard commented. Gerard asked staff to investigate how other cities in the area were supporting, or not supporting, community markets. Commissioner Woody Brown said he didnt think other markets were manned by city staff, but were a result of a partnership with the respective cities.

Below, Gabrielle Simmons, 2, of Largo, takes the wheel of a Largo sanitation truck. market was important to its success, he later commented. From my research, I dont think youre going to get produce in the park unless its weekly, Brown said. City manager Mac Craig said his staff was working with Pistillo to come to help keep the market going, despite the costs. We think we can get there, he said. We think we can get it done. The costs to host an event like the market include the rental fee for Ulmer Park, a utility fee if the vendors need electricity, a charge to deliver and pick up a dumpster and the cost of renting portable toilets. Park clean-up fees are $22 per hour per staff person. The city requires every vendor to have insurance, and the community development department charges a fee for a special event permit and a banner fee. In the end, the market costs roughly about $1,000 each month, Pistillo said. She does charge the vendors who participate for the space they use. Its not even covering the costs, she said. The West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment Agency has an events and promotion assistance program to set aside finds for purposes like the market. A city sponsorship through the program provides up to $1,500 per applicant per fiscal year to help pay for city related expenses, according to city documents. Pistillo said she has used up those funds during the first four months of the market. A request to extend the funds for the market beyond the $1,500 max was on the agenda for Feb. 4, but Pistillo said she was told it was removed given the pending research of other markets in the area. Parks, Arts and Recreation Director Joan Bryne said she had requested the information from other cities and was waiting to hear back. Information about the larger market in St. Petersburg was the hardest to come by. Im hoping to have something by the end of the week, she said. The results will be reported in a weekly city managers report, she explained. Pistillo said she plans on gathering supporters to speak in favor of the market during the next commission meeting, whether the issue is on the agenda or not. Im going to be pulling as many people as I can here Feb. 4 to voice their thoughts (and) feelings about how important it is for them, she said. The next Ulmer Park Market featuring live music, food trucks, arts and crafts and local vendors will be held Saturday, Feb. 8, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 301 W. Bay Drive. For more information or to rent a vendor booth, call Tanya Pistillo at 465-8558. MARKET, from page 1A

4A Largo Leader, January 30, 2014Geraldine Gere Turner. She died Feb. 14, 2013 at age 91. The home originally belonged to her parents, Alfred Cleveland and Amber Clark Turner. Along with her family home, she gave the county $100,000 to pay for the move. Work began on the Turner Bungalows new home site just north of the Walsingham House in December. Workers removed about 40 pine trees to make room for the house built in 1915. Volunteers spent many hours preserving artifacts inside the home, while contractors prepared the historic structure for its trip. One of the last steps was to remove its roof to reduce the weight and get the height down low enough to pass under traffic signals along the 8-mile route. Paige Noel, Heritage Village project management specialist and volunteer coordinator, said packing up the house was challenging due to the amount of artifacts inside. She was excited about the acquisition. Ive been working at Heritage Village for 10 years and this is the first house theyve moved in, she said. It will be some time before the Turner Bungalow will be open to the public for viewing. Plans call for the home to be refurbished, which will take an undetermined amount of time. It needs a lot of work, Noel said. Hailed as a significant addition to the countys historical village, the Turner Bungalow aligns with the villages master plan, Noel said in an email sent to volunteers in mid-December. She described the home as a good example of early 20th century wood-framed Florida vernacular bungalow design. Florida vernacular houses also may be referred to as Florida crackers. They typically are plain, constructed from local materials and styled for weather conditions of the location. Bungalows, aka cottages, often were built as summer homes before people began to live in them year-round. It is fitting that a home belonging to the Turner family found its way to Heritage Village. Geraldines grandfather had a big influence on the countys early history. Some say he was one of the sparks that led to Pinellas separating from Hillsborough in 1912. Arthur Campbell Turner came to what would become Pinellas County in 1851 and moved to Clear Water Harbor in 1854. He served on the Hillsborough County Commission, which at the time was the government for land that would eventually become Pinellas. Turner was unhappy with the lack of money provided to western Hillsborough and made his views known, helping to stir up dissension across the bay. Historical accounts describe Turner as a leading citizen, serving as postmaster, the countys first treasurer and a supervisor of elections, aka registration officer, from 1914-1916. He was the publisher of the West Hillsboro Times, having purchased the paper in 1884. He sold the paper to R.J. Morgan in 1892. Morgan moved operations to St. Petersburg and eventually changed the name to the St. Petersburg Times. Turner also served on the Clearwater City Council and board of education. The A.C. Turner store was Clearwaters first general store. Law Board of Directors, Town of Indian Shores Board of Adjustment, Florida Federal Contractors Association Board of Directors and previously served on the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast Board of Advisors. Sink is a past and present board member of the United Way Suncoast, Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, Florida Tax Watch, Florida Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, Florida Council of 100, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Take Stock in Children, Florida Wildlife Federation, Florida Healthy Kids, USF Foundation and United Way Worldwide Advisory Board. Overby is the founder of Take a District, an outreach group designed to engage voters under 30 with their government and their community. He is currently a member of Clearwater Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center Collision and the Libertarian Party. He also has worked with a number of nonprofit groups.Why run for office?Jolly said he is running to fill the immeasurable void left in Congress and the county after Youngs death. This is what this race is all about to me, he said in response to a questionnaire sent to all candidates. Ive worked on behalf of our community and this congressional district for 20 years alongside our late Congressman, as he consistently found ways to grow high-tech and defense manufacturing jobs here at home, invest in transportation and infrastructure improvements that affect our quality of life, expand higher education opportunities, protect and nourish our beaches, and support our men and women in uniform. I got into this race because I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. I also believe I can bring together Republicans, Independent and Democrats to work together. Sink said, If you see a problem and think you can be part of the solution, you owe it to your community to step up and work to fix it. I am running because I am sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. Its time for Republicans and Democrats to come together to tackle the challenges that matter most to Pinellas County caring for our seniors and veterans, stopping the flood insurance rate spike, helping businesses grow jobs and protecting Medicare and Social Security. As a business leader and (former) Floridas chief financial officer, I put partisanship aside and worked across party lines to get things done. Its these bipartisan, results-oriented values that I will take to Congress to break the gridlock and get results for Pinellas. Overby said he is running because it gives him the opportunity to fight for my neighbors on the national level. I believe that with my knowledge of the community and my lifelong work in the area, I have a unique knowledge of how the laws Congress passes affects the everyday person, he said. Living and working under the regulatory burden imposed on working class citizens for so long, I am in a position to understand how to help my community.What candidates hope to accomplishJolly has three top priorities, creating jobs and growing our economy, repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a market-based solution, and replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Natural Disaster Insurance Program. Sink said the most important thing she wants to do in Congress is to be part of bringing folks together to focus on solving the challenges that matter most to Pinellas, like helping businesses grow jobs. And one of the most important challenges we face here in Pinellas is the flood insurance issue, she said. First, we need to stop the rate spike, but we also need a longer term solution that provides more accountability, transparency and affordability for homeowners. We also need to get Congress focused on protecting our seniors and veterans. I will fight to protect Medicare and Social Security end of discussion. And I want to make it easier for veterans to find jobs and get the benefits theyve earned. As a wife and daughter of Marines, this is very personal to me. Overby said he has short-term and long-term goals. In the short term, we plan to focus on simplifying the tax code, working on cutting federal waste, ending corporate welfare and working toward real immigration relief, he said. While I have long-term and short-term legislative goals, I have spent this campaign focused on goals that would have the greatest immediate impact. In general, my goals will always be to limit the size and scope of the federal government and to open up opportunities for workers and business owners alike.Best qualified candidateJolly said, Pinellas County and our nation deserve a leader who will work to create jobs and grow our local economy, lower taxes, cut wasteful spending, secure Americas borders, lower the national debt, replace Obamacare with free-market health care policy and respect our Constitution and Bill of Rights. I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. Sink said, My commitment to solving problems is driven by my real world experience as a business leader, my service as Floridas Chief Financial Officer and as a contributor to our nonprofit community. In the private sector, I helped Florida families secure the resources they needed to pursue their dreams, and as CFO, I cut wasteful spending to make government do more with less and fought for consumer protections, especially those focused on seniors. My life has always been guided by bipartisan, results-oriented leadership, and its these values I will bring to Washington. Overby said, I am more qualified than my opponents because of both my time and experience in the private sector, which takes a vast understanding of not only existing legislation but preparedness for new legislation, and my time and experience working with this community. Not only do I understand better what is it like to live and work in this community far better than my opponents, I offer a vastly different vantage point on the issues and have the experience to offer solutions.Most pressing issuesJolly said the most pressing issues in Washington, D.C., that affect Pinellas County are the need to create jobs and grow our local economy, repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution, and replace the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Disaster Insurance Program. Additionally, I believe the Administration and Congress must balance the budget, he said. Sink said, Everywhere I go, homeowners and businesses tell me the flood insurance rate spike will put them at risk of losing their homes or businesses. This is yet another self-inflicted crisis Congress has refused to act on and Pinellas families will suffer if they cant put politics aside to solve the problem, she said. Sink said she had outlined several proposals to combat the flood insurance crisis. Protecting Pinellas seniors is also a top priority, she continued. As CFO, I worked to defend Floridas seniors from fraud and abuse and in Congress I will continue in those efforts. Social Security and Medicare are promises that have been made to our seniors and I am committed to being a strong advocate for preserving that promise. Overby said, Having been working with the community to build solutions and address concerns for the past year of this campaign, I have heard time and time again that jobs and the economy are the two biggest concerns. This is the reason I have chosen to go after the legislative reforms that I have. Unless we work toward reopening the small business sector, the people of this district will continue to suffer, he said.What should be done?Jolly said, I started and ran the Florida Federal Contractors Association to sustain and grow Pinellas defense, high-technology and manufacturing industry. We must protect these jobs by electing a member of Congress that understands the important contribution these companies make to job growth and our local economy. Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution that solution should be able to address pre-existing conditions, protect policy owners from cancellation and allow children to remain on their parents policies until a later age just as the Affordable Care Act does, he said. Jolly proposes replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new National Disaster Insurance Program. The Administration and Congress should balance the budget, he said. Merely reducing the amount of the annual deficit does not constitute capturing additional revenue. An actual surplus would create an opportunity to consider additional investment in services with a reduction of the tax burden imposed on individuals and businesses. Sink said, I will work to bring Republicans and Democrats together to focus on the challenges that Pinellas families are facing. Its through bipartisan, commonsense problem solving that we will break through the gridlock and get things done. Those are the values that I have built my career on and its those values I will take to Washington. Overby said, I am working on solutions that would make doing business easier and allow the small business sector to grow. Through tax reform, removal of red tape and clearing the way for small business owners to operate more freely I can help give my community relief from some of their biggest concerns.About the electionThe last day to register to vote in the March 11 special Congressional election or one of the 12 municipal elections is Monday, Feb. 10.

But, Pinellas County staff still predicts that the cost of doing business will outpace the revenue stream. Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala revealed the latest 10year budget forecast during a Jan. 21 work session. LaSala described the forecast as a snapshot in time based on the best economic information available from national, state and local sources. This is the fifth year that county staff has prepared the forecast as a prelude to budget preparations for the next fiscal year. LaSala said the forecast helps identify hurdles and whats coming down the road to assist commissioners with their decision-making. Its a great tool the forecast, he said.Economic projectionsOne of the leading national forecast tools is the Gross Domestic Product, expected to grow by 2.6 to 2.8 percent annually over the next three years, according to Jim Abernathy, senior financial management and budget analyst with the Office of Management and Budget. Staff also uses information from the Florida Estimating Conference, which met in December. Abernathy said the states economy is moving in a positive direction with a renewal of population growth and an upswing in tourism. However, the foreclosure rate continues to raise concerns. Florida had eight of the 10 highest rates for foreclosure markets in the United States with Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando, Palm Bay, Port St. Lucie and Tampa Bay making up the top six. Median sales prices for existing homes are up but still remain more than $50,000 below the bubble induced level of late 2006, the staff report said. Unemployment is another indicator of economic growth. The current unemployment rate of 6.4 percent is well below the peak level of 11.4 percent in February 2010, Abernathy said. The most recent unemployment figure released by the state Jan. 24 showed the unemployment rate down to 6.2 percent in December. Locally, economic growth is expected to remain slower than the states, despite declining unemployment. Pinellas Countys unemployment is the lowest since 2008. But the countys population growth is stagnant. The states population is growing pretty fast, Abernathy said. The county doesnt have room for more population. Still, staff expects sales tax collections to improve in future years. Tourism drives the countys economy with visitors accounting for more than $8.2 billion in sales. Bed tax collections amounted to a record $31.1 million in 2013, 8.2 percent more than 2012. Staff expects tourism to continue to thrive. The local housing market remains depressed, but sales prices are up over last year. Staff said foreclosures would likely increase over the next few years, keeping prices down. Staff presented the forecast for nine key funds: general, emergency medical services, tourist development, transportation trust, capital projects, airport, water, sewer and solid waste.General fund forecastBarry Lupiani, management and budget analyst, explained the forecast for the General Fund. Staff estimates a $3.9 million budget gap for fiscal year 2015 with the gap growing to $40 million by FY 2024. To close the gap, revenue must increase or spending has to go down. Property taxes account for 67 percent of general fund revenue. Staff estimates an increase of about 3 percent in property tax collections for future years. Taxable values are forecast to increase by 3.4 percent in 2014 and 3 percent each year thereafter through 2017. A half-cent sales tax accounts for 9 percent of the general fund budget. Staff predicts a 4 percent increase in sales tax for fiscal years 2015-2017 and 3.5 percent for 2019-2024. Future general fund spending includes annual increases of 4.3 percent for salary and benefits, and general cost inflation of about 2 percent a year. Lupiani said estimates for FY 2014-2015 did not include potential effects of national insurance reform. Any negative impacts from rising flood insurance cost wont affect property values until at least FY 2015-2016. Bottom line, the budget forecast indicates that the current level of service paid for from the general fund is not sustainable, LaSala said. Recommended ways to balance the budget include reducing or eliminating programs; evaluating compensation options, using return on equity for enterprise funds, increasing the millage rate or use of money held in the service level continuation account, which has a current balance of $10.7 million. It will be 20 years before we get back to where we were in gross revenue, LaSala said, admitting that his projection could be off by a few years. He said the burying power of the dollar had been eroded with 20 years of inflation to take into account. LaSala also pointed out that as unemployment drops, pressure on wages would go up and affect the supply and demand of talent. Our ability to keep people we have and need becomes more of a challenging compounded by the retirement of the baby boomers, he said.

Computer aided sex crimes against children is top priority By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri says that adults who use the Internet to lure young children into having sex, is the number one problem in the county, and it must be stopped. Gualtieri was speaking at a news conference on Jan. 27 with Clearwater Police Chief Anthony Holloway where the two men disclosed the details of what they called Operation Home Alone. The sting operation involved a dozen detectives working out of the Clearwater Police Department engaging sexual predators in chat rooms and luring them to several locations in Pinellas County where they were arrested and charged with sex crimes. It was like shooting fish in a barrel, said Holloway. We are going to continue to do everything we can to get them. The operation began on Jan. 23 at 2 p.m. and lasted until 2 a.m. on Jan. 27. Holloway said 12 detectives were manning the phones, and within minutes, they were engaged in conversations with up to 10 people at once, all wanting to find children to have sex with. We really werent prepared for such a large and quick response, Holloway said. If we had 40 detectives, they would all have been busy. During the four days of the operation, detectives from both the sheriffs office and the Clearwater PD arrested 35 suspects. Gaultieri said some of the stories were horrific. One man who was arrested, James King of Tampa, had an ad on Craigslist looking for Family Love. That is code for wanting to have sex with a woman and her children, Gualtieri said. He has a 4-year-old daughter, and he brought her to have sex with an 11and a 14-year-old girl, or so he thought. These are the kind of predators that are out there. Gualtieri said the stories just went on and on as they arrested person after person. Nicholas Demasky of Hudson told us as he was arrested that he couldnt resist the urge anymore, Gualtieri said. He has a computer with child porn on it. Hes a student at USF and get this he wants to be an elementary school teacher. Gualtieri went on. Russell Edwards of St. Petersburg had an ad on Craigslist where he said he wanted to teach young girls to have sex and he was looking for a mother who would hold her daughter down while he did it, Gualtieri said. There was yet another story that Gualtieri found particularly disturbing. Michael Dempsey of Bradenton, whose wife is a nurse and was working, was home with his two daughters, 10 and 12 years old. They were sleeping, Gualtieri said. He left them to drive to Pinellas County on the promise that he was going to have sex with a 14-year-old girl. He was arrested instead. Detectives called his wife to go home and look after the children. The 35 suspects were charged with a number of crimes, which varied from person to person. All, however, were charged with using electronic means to arrange sex with a minor, a third-degree felony, and travelling to have sex with a minor, a second-degree felony. Most of the arrests took place in undisclosed locations in North Pinellas. Chief Holloway said it just shows how important it is for parents to be aware of what their children are doing when they go on the Internet. Parents need to know what their children are up to, Holoway said. They have to make sure their kids dont do it. Gualtieri added to it the fact that in some cases, it is the parents who are helping make these crimes happen. There are three things at play here that are helping the predators, Gualtieri said. There are the children themselves who are on the Internet and get lured into sex by the predators; there are male adults who provide the children for the predators, and there are female adults who do the same thing. It is the scourge of the parents, thats what makes it so bad. He said what the predators are doing today having sex with minors can and does, lead to much more. There are cases of them holding kids and prostituting them out on weekends, Gualtieri said. They are used in the adult entertainment industry, and it amounts to human trafficking. Holloway said one of those who chatted with the detectives claimed to be an uncle who could provide his 14-year-old nephew for sex. He said his department will be relentless in the pursuit of people like that. Next time, maybe well have 20 detectives working on it, he said. Our investigations are ongoing; we might do all this again in an hour. That is a warning that Holloway hopes will discourage the predators from engaging in sex with minors. But Gualtieri doesnt think so. Early this morning, we went back on those websites to see if we had made a difference. We did not. Everything was the same as it was before we started this; every single day girls and boys are engaging in this. Gualtieri said sex with minors has become the number one problem in the county. It used to be prescription drugs, Gualtieri said. But weve got that down to only two known pill mills in the county, and doctor-shopping has dropped off considerably. We now turn our attention to this. The press conference was held at the Clearwater Police Department. Operation Home Alone involved not only the sheriffs office and the Clearwater PD, but also a number of other agencies, all part of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. They included the FBI, the U.S. Air Force, FDLE, the Polk County Sheriffs Office, St. Pete Police Department, the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorneys Office and the Department of Homeland Security.

Police beat Police beatPolice investigating a robbery in Largo Central ParkLARGO Largo police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred in Largo Central Park Jan. 21, shortly before 10:10 p.m. Two males wearing hooded sweatshirts with their faces covered approached a group of three people near one of the shelters at the park that evening, said Largo police spokesman Paul Amodeo. They asked if the group had any marijuana. When they said no, they asked if they had anything in their pockets. One of the suspects then produced a gun and demanded the three empty their pockets, Amodeo said. The two suspects stole some items. They were seen running east across Fourth Street Northeast and down First Avenue Northeast, Amodeo said. A K-9 unit tracked the suspects but was not able to find them. The suspects are described as black males, wearing dark pants along with the hooded sweatshirts. One wore a black jacket and the other had a black shirt wrapped around his lower face, the victims told police.

The robbery occurred at the Subway at 2655 East Bay Drive Nov. 20, at around 3:35 p.m. Surveillance video from the scene captured the suspect robbing the employee before he fled the scene, said Largo police spokesman Paul Amodeo. A picture from the video was posted at the Largo Police Departments Facebook page and shared at least 14 times. A tip from the community led detectives to Cody Zirbes. However, Zirbes kept eluding police once they established probable cause. Then, Detective Brendan Arlington discovered that Zirbes was scheduled to work at Sportscasters Bar and Grill in Largo on Jan. 21 at 7 p.m., according to a city email announcing the arrest. The departments Problem Oriented Policing unit arrested Zirbes. He was evasive during an initial Cody Zirbes See POLICE, page 7A

However, Detective Bill Magnuson questioned him about a case of felony fraud in which he reportedly let someone use his EBT card, Amodeo said. During that interview, he confessed to the Subway robbery, the department reported. Zirbes was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on felony charges of robbery, strong-arm robbery and fraud.Clearwater man sentenced to 10 yearsTAMPA A 24-year-old Clearwater man was sentenced to 10 years and 10 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute 28 grams or more of crack cocaine in a case investigated by Largo police. Keire Terrell Harvey pleaded guilty to the charge Oct. 15. Recently, U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington sentenced him, according to a press release released Jan. 13. Between June 2 and July 19 last year, Harvey sold crack cocaine to an undercover Largo Police Department detective on five occasions, according to court documents. He was arrested July 29 when he showed up at a location to sell more crack cocaine to an undercover detective. At the time, he reportedly had 32.8 grams of crack cocaine to sell. Largo Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated this case, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez prosecuted it. Keire Terrell HarveyEmergency medical services fundVeronica Ettel, senior financial management and budget analyst, presented the forecast for emergency medical services. The EMS fund is not in balance, she said. The budget forecast shows a gap of $3.4 million in FY 2015 with reserves down to 25 percent below the amount required by Commission policy. If nothing changes, the reserve fund would be gone by FY 2018. Millage rate increases would be needed to provide the same level of services. Staff is counting on implementing a consultants recommendations to alleviate the strain on the EMS budget. LaSala said staff was working on translating the Fitch report and would bring recommendations to the commission on Feb. 4. He said after receiving direction, staff would begin work with municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services. The contract with Paramedics Plus to operate the Sunstar ambulance service expires in 2014. It can be extended to 2015. The contract will go out for bid in 2016. The budget forecast includes a 4 percent increase for ambulance service. First responder costs are expected to go up by 5 percent.Transportation trust fundAnother problem spot is the transportation trust fund. Lyn Katare, management and budget analyst, told the commission that the fund is not in balance beginning in FY 2015 and projections show that the fund will run dry by FY 2019. Reasons include rising costs and decreasing revenues due to more fuel-efficient vehicles, Katare said. The budget gap increases in FY 2017 when the local option gas tax expires, unless the commission votes to continue the tax. She said to balance the budget, the commission might have to subsidize transportation with money from the general fund or reduce service.Other fundsLinda Benoit, management and budget analyst, said the water and funds would remain balanced as long as approved 2 percent rate increases continued annually through FY 2015. She said a new rate study would begin this year and a consultant would make recommendations to keep the funds in balance through future years. The solid waste fund also is in balance, although solid waste tipping fees and electricity sales have declined due to the slow economy. Bill Berger, interim director of the Office of Management and Budget, said the capital projects fund would remain in balance as long as staff effectively managed the timing of projects. Plans also include the use of interfund loans from the solid waste fund to address short-term shortfalls. Berger said the forecast did not assume renewal of Penny for Pinellas, which expires in 2020. He said if voter did not approve the tax for future years, money for infrastructure would have to come from the general fund.Budget processBerger talked about potential impacts to the forecast including new federal or state mandates, impact of flood insurance on property values, property tax exemptions, Save Our Homes impact, slower than expected economic growth, changes in the frequency and intensity of storms, utility rate increase and reauthorization of the penny, tourist and gas taxes. The outcome of the referendum on Greenlight Pinellas transportation tax also is on the list. The Office of Management and Budget officially kicks off the budget season Feb. 7. County departments must submit strategic plans by Feb. 28. Public budget information sessions begin on April 17 with an update on strategic initiatives. Independent agencies will present their budgets on April 24. Constitutional Officers have until May 1 to submit their budgets with budget information session scheduled on May 15 and 22. On June 12, a budget information session will cover the capital improvement program, and user fees for water, sewer and surface water. The property appraiser will certify property value estimates on July 1 and the county administrator will present his FY 2015 budget on July 15. A meeting to hear feedback on the proposed budget is scheduled on July 22. The commission will meet to finalize proposed millage rates for Truth and Millage notices on July 31. Trim notices will be mailed Aug. 22. The first public hearing on the budget is set for Sept. 11 with a final hearing on Sept. 23. FORECAST, from page 5A

Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, this concept has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated $17,500 to local organizations.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563I was still very cold in St. Augustine early on the 14th day of Christmas, as I edited this Florida Perspectives column. Scanning the Weather Channel website, even Tampa, my new other favorite Florida city, registered in the upper mid-30s. But, as the warm-up continues, its my good fortune to be a native of the Sunshine State, aka Paradise. I doubt that those residents with allegiance to The Florida State University noticed the cold at all on Monday or Tuesday nights or, even this morning. Theyre still celebrating their season-ending joy winning the BCS National Championship in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on Twelfth Night. I am sure that the most-worn apparel on flights outbound Tuesday to Florida screamed garnet and gold. And, I say that while proudly wearing my Florida Gators orange and blue. (We will get back there, Gators, eventually). But, today is not about gridiron championships. Its about the start of the second season for public school students. Competition in the classroom heats up student by student, grade by grade, school by school, county by county. Its the season of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, aka FCAT. In late February, FCAT Writing tests are given. Mid-April to early May, its FCAT testing in reading, math and science. FCAT results are high-stakes competition for students, teachers, and administrators. St. Johns County School Superintendent Joe Joyner knows that. This district has been Number One overall or, shared the honor, this past decade. (Given the districts success, we know why Joyner was a potential lieutenant governor candidate last fall. Wisely, he thanked Gov. Rick Scott for the honor but declined further consideration.) In his weekly report to educators, parents and the general public, Joyner noted the upcoming testing. As is customary following the winter break, we will now focus on academic progress leading up to testing and assessment for all grades, he said. This culminates with opportunities for our students to show the skills and knowledge that they have acquired throughout the entire year. I encourage you to make note of district-wide testing dates on the 2013-2014 Master Calendar to ensure that you can plan and help your child prepare for success! If you havent heard the testing message in your own district, or missed it, check for yourself. Student success starts at home. Strong parental support for learning, a good nights sleep and a good breakfast for the students counts heavily. Business operators, who employ students, should also take note when it comes to their work schedules. Student success is our responsibility, because it reflects on their futures, our teachers and our schools.Margo C. Pope is a former editorial page editor of The St. Augustine Record.LETTERS The sad decline of TIME magazineDo you remember what TIME magazine used to be like? I do, but Im older than most Americans. That means I can recall when journalism stood for providing information, much more than entertainment or titillation. In 1959, in Rome, I was with some students from Syracuse University. One of them said, Over here, I cant get my weekly copy of TIME. How am I gonna know what to think? Many Americans felt the same way. Even if you didnt agree with TIMEs moderately right-wing position on issues, you could feel that after spending an hour or two with the latest issue of TIME you were up to date on most of the major national and world news stories. TIME had correspondents scattered throughout the world. Publisher Henry Luce was a force to be reckoned with. Each week TIME furnished its readers with reams of content, i.e., words and sentences. It also supplied photos and artwork that complemented the stories without overwhelming them. The magazine seemed to be aimed at intelligent, concerned adults. Over the past half-century, that has changed. I wont bore you with a detailed chronology. Ill just describe some aspects of recent TIME issues. On the plus side, you can still find a few detailed, well-written stories about important public figures and vital problems the USA and the rest of the world are grappling with. The Jan. 20 issue featured a cover story on Janet Yellen, the incoming chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve system and the first woman ever to hold that job. Another story dealt with the resurgence of Iraqs Al-Qaeda forces. There was a guest column by a Christian-magazine editor about end-of-life decisions that often must be made for or by critically ill persons. Columnist Joe Klein (probably the main reason I still subscribe to TIME) wrote about income inequality. The rest of the issue contained a scattering of brief stories that might be described as significant. Or not. Im no authority on magazine publishing, but it seems to me that every serious news journal has at least two or three crucial decisions to make for each issue. (1) Which stories do we choose to run? (2) How much space do we give to each story? (3) How do we display the magazines total content news, photos, advertisements, headlines? Today TIMEs weekly decisions on those matters baffle me. With only a limited amount of room in each issue, how can the editors justify devoting a two-page spread in the Jan. 20 issue to the photo of an infant being lifted from the rubble of a recent air attack in Damascus? A similar profligate use of precious space was a full-page inside photo of Janet Yellen (whom we had already seen on the cover), facing an opposite page whose total content was forty superfluous words whose message could have been captured in a single paragraph of running text. In the Culture section we were treated to not just one, but two full-page photos of Hollywood celebrity Spike Jonze. To which any thinking reader might cry out, Why? A twoinch mug shot would have done the same job, thus freeing up room for a thousand words of text. TIMEs philosophy of space allocation can be seen in the squeentsy semi-agate art captions that practically shout to subscribers past age 70, If you cant read this tiny type, the hell with you. Young people can, and they have the most money. Theyre the ones our advertisers want to reach. The worst example of space allocation in the Jan. 20 issue was a five-page spread on an exercise program called Crossfit something all America has been begging to learn about, dont you know? After thumbing through the issues inexplicable mish-mash, I asked myself, Why do you subscribe to TIME? I have no ready answer. I can get most of the news I need from The Week magazine, the Internet, and other easily available sources. Several mornings each week, as I wake up, I reach out for my Kindle. I switch it on and, for 50 cents or a buck, order the days edition of the Boston Globe, New York Times or Tampa Bay Times. A few seconds later Im awash in news from around the world. In fairness to the people who write and publish TIME, I must concede that dozens of good reasons may exist for the many changes to the once-worshipped magazine. In any age, the news business is a shifting, competitive, dog-eat-dog way to earn a buck while staying alive. High on the list of any publications headaches is the unpredictable nature of the publics preferences. Plus columns like this one, whining and kvetching because life aint like it used to be.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Kudos to music that gives us pauseIt was a time when great songwriters told us about tin soldiers and Nixon coming and reminded us that the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls. Whether putting flowers in gun barrels helped change the world in the 1960s is debatable, but the messages in the music of those turbulent times sent powerful messages, gave us pause. And that music still does. In a daydream, I wondered whats happened to protest music and songs that spoke about social consciousness. Certainly, world events continue to cry for more of such works the U.S. government shutdown, instability in the Middle East, war in Afghanistan, Edward Snowden, among other issues. I dont hear it, at least not on my radio stations. Flash back to the s and s. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, among my favorite musical groups, gave us Ohio, about the killing and wounding of students by soldiers during an antiwar protest at Kent State University. Along those lines is Chicago, written by Graham Nash in response to Mayor Richard Daleys shameful handling of riots during the Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968 and other issues. I always liked Credence Clearwater Revivals Fortunate Son, an anti-Vietnam War song critical of class discrepancies. The song was played during a war scene in the movie Forrest Gump and fit nicely onto the soundtrack.We had Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Remember the Eve of Destruction? It was made famous by Barry McGuire, who performed rock, folk and contemporary Christian music. John Lennons Imagine, with its enduring theme of peace and love, is listed as No. 3 on Rolling Stones 500 greatest songs of all time. Im sure youve heard it. Didnt check to see if any music by his other half, Yoko Ono, made the list, though. My favorite songwriter is Paul Simon. The works of Simon and Garfunkel in the 1960s are unsurpassed in their themes about the downtrodden, dispossessed and neglected, such as the Sound of Silence. Who can forget the classic verse from the song Mrs. Robinson: Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio? Yes, hes gone, but Im glad Paul Simon is still around. In the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen, Born in the USA, and U2, Sunday, Bloody Sunday, produced some stirring protest songs. Also one of my favorites is Midnight Oils Beds are Burning, a song about giving native Australian lands back to the Pintupi, who were among the very last people to come in from the desert, according to the website SongFacts. Im hard pressed to think of any renowned songs inspired by war, politics or other significant issues that were produced in the last decade. A cursory search on the Internet gave some insight. This, from New York Times music writer James C. McKinley Jr. in 2011, capsulizes my line of thinking: So far, musicians living through the biggest economic disaster since the Great Depression have filled the airwaves with songs about dancing, not the worries of working people, he wrote. Is it because the great icons of dissent from bygone eras are too far removed from current forms of expression and communication to make an impact on the current generation of songwriters? Folk singers have been revered for their social commentary, such as Pete Seeger, the author of Where Have All the Flowers Gone, and Turn, Turn, Turn. But Seegers era, the 1950s, is long past. Perhaps, too, many of us as true of any generation are reluctant to embrace newer forms of music. Im about as flexible as Stonehenge. However, while searching for articles about recent examples of provocative protest music, I came across rap artist Pharoahe Monchs tribute song to Trayvon Martin called Stand Your Ground, an effort to repeal the law used to protect George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Martin. Kudos to Monch, known as a socially conscious musician, for delivering what Huffpost Live calls a potent, hard song that decries the verdict through a sound somewhere between punk rock and hip-hop. Whether I agree with the verdict in the case is immaterial here. What I applaud is any artists earnest attempt to help bring about change or at least make us think. Hail to musicians who write songs that dare to disturb the sound of silence.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tger mond@TBNweekly.com.

Margo Pope Student success starts at home Tom Germond Drivers SeatBob Driver An aberration of historical factsRe: Editorial cartoon, Jan. 23.Editor: The Star of David prominently placed in the heavens with a dedication to Ariel Sharon 1928-2014 was meant by the cartoonist to celebrate the life of General and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. There are a number of Jewish academicians who agree that Sharon is the man responsible for destroying any hope of a viable Palestinian state with the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages and with the introduction of Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands, ergo, sabotaging any peace treaty between representatives of all Palestinians and of all Israelis. Sharons military incursion into Beirut allowed the massacre by Lebanese Christians of over one thousand Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila camps of southern Beirut in September of 1982. He was found indirectly guilty by an Israeli Commission. These famous academicians are: Prof. Ilan Pappe and Prof. Avi Shlaim (two Israeli historians), Prof. Noam Choamsky, Prof. Norman Finkelstein, and Prof. John J. Mearsheimer, educators and authors all. To praise Sharon as a shining star is an aberration of historical facts which the cartoonist should have known. Arthur Hebert LargoHeed words of Lawrence of ArabiaEditor: I fear the muted din echoing in the distance is emanating once more from the drums of war being beat by those urging Americas military involvement in the mid-East. With this in mind it seemed an opportune moment to revisit an article I wrote which was printed elsewhere a few years ago. The message is still pertinent today, and perhaps even more so in view of the fact we still find ourselves bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan with no real satisfactory conclusion in sight. In my letter I cautioned against ignoring the lessons of history when making decisions, especially when those decisions involve military commitment. In order to add emphasis and lend authority to my message I quoted a chillingly prescient article written by Col. T.E. Lawrence. It was sent from Arabia and subsequently published in the London Times in 1920. Quoting the author he wrote, The people of England have been led in Iraq into a trap from which it is hard to escape with dignity and honor. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. Today, we are not far from disaster. The writer then went on to explain the difficulty of trying to impose western style democracy on nations to whom the concept itself was foreign, and which in many instances violated their religious beliefs. Taking liberty here, it is my contention he was including in this admonition all Arab and Muslim nations. Resuming the quote he went on to argue, How long will we permit millions of pounds, thousands of troops and tens of thousands of Arabs to be sacrificed on behalf of a colonial administration which can benefit nobody but its administration? It is fair to say in view of what has transpired in the past few years that Lawrence of Arabia knew that of which he spoke. Unfortunately, we (Americans) have turned a deaf ear to his message, or for that matter to the messages of anyone proffering similar arguments in protest of our actions. Will we ever learn to listen, or more importantly, listen to learn? Robert A. Shaw Madeira Beach

Rolston has spent her entire career adding potential to the lives of children, first with the Pinellas County School District and then at Big Brothers Big Sisters. She joined the agency in March of 2001. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the board members and executive staff by working together to enrich the lives of children who need us the most, Rolston shared in her retirement announcement to her staff members. Rolston will leave the agency with a scholarship endowment for graduating Littles, designed to help combat generational poverty. Over the past decade, the agency has accomplished substantial growth in the number of children served under Rolstons leadership, from 400 in 2001 to 1,433 in 2013. Being recognized locally and nationally as an evidence-based social service nonprofit that provides high quality mentoring to children is extremely rewarding, Rolston stated. Reaching that level of achievement in the midst of diversifying revenue sources was a satisfying, yet aggressive challenge. As a champion for children living in adversity, Rolston expects to stay engaged with local programs and activities that will give children in need the opportunity for a better life. Dave Fox, president of Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors and senior vice president of Manufacturing & Advertiser Content at ValPak, thanked Rolston for her leadership on behalf of the board of directors. Susans legacy will continue to further the agency under the steadfast direction of the strong team established during her years of service, he said.

Susan RolstonJotos Pizza celebrates four decades of pizza, family and community By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE In 1973, Fred and Carol Zinda, with their two young daughters in tow, sold all of their belongings and left behind their friends and family in rural Wisconsin to open a pizza franchise in Pinellas County. As a testament to mom-and-pop chains everywhere, Jotos Pizza celebrated 40 years in businessJan. 25 and 26.Early yearsAt 31, Fred had a steady job working in a paper mill; Carol, then 28, was a legal secretary. Neither of them had any experience in the restaurant business. But their friends, a Michigan couple theyd met while on their honeymoon in 1966, had recently relocated to Orlando to open a Crustys Pizza franchise. They couldnt believe how much money they were making, Carol said. Pizza began to really take off in the 1960s, she said. Until then, it wasnt very popular. But by the time the Zindas considered opening a pizza joint of their own in the early 1970s, it had become the number one food in the country. So they headed south in 1973, landing in Pinellas Park, where they rented a mobile home and opened a Crustys Pizza on 49th Avenue. When they arrived in September of that year, Pinellas Park businesses were facing a moratorium on construction. So their grand opening, originally planned for October, was delayed. Those first few months were the toughest of their lives, Carol said. Most nights, shed cry herself to sleep she was so homesick. They lived off their savings while Fred traveled to the Orlando Crustys for on-the-job training as they waited for their own stores grand opening. We had to sell everything to move, she said. We went into debt to open this franchise. It was pure hell at first. We couldnt afford groceries. We survived on our menu items. They eventually opened on Jan. 22, 1974. They made only $60 that first day, Carol said. But slowly, as the Zindas planted roots in the community, the business grew. In 1977, they decided to break away from the Michigan-based franchise. For the royalties [Crustys] got from us, we werent getting enough back from them in return, Carol said. They really werent supportive. So the couple founded Jotos, the name a combination of their daughters first names: Tori and Jodi. We had to come up with our own recipes for sauce and dough, Carol said. We still use them today.Jotos expandsThe Zindas didnt let their inexperience hold them back. Even though we didnt know anything about the business, said Fred. We were very people-oriented. This was the key to their success and the driving force behind their growth. In 1982, the couple opened up its Seminole location. The following year, they expanded to Gulfport, on 15th Avenue and 58th Street South. In 1999 came a second Pinellas Park location, in the Bayou Center on Belcher Road. Several years later, in 2003, eager to take advantage of the beach traffic, they opened a Jotos on West Bay Drive. They also expanded their menu over the years as well. In 1977, their first menu only included two subs and one pizza, Fred said. Today, their menu lists dozens of items, as well as a separate childrens menu. And in order to keep up with bigger chains, Jotos was forced to evolve the way it conducted business. It wasnt long before the chain delivered orders to customers doors, accepted credit cards and sold pizza by the slice. Fred said, Over the years, we realized when in Rome, you do as the Romans do. You have to go with the changes.A family affairToday their family only owns two Jotos the one in Seminole and the Bayou Center location, the lone survivors, Carol said. A third Jotos on 49th Avenue in Pinellas Park, mere blocks from the original location, is still open, but was sold to a former employee in the late 1980s. The economy hit us pretty hard, said the Zindas daughter Jodi Whitcomb. But these two are still going strong. She doesnt rule out Jotos opening new restaurants as the economy improves. In the past decade, her parents, who now live in North Redington Beach, have stepped back from the business, while Jodi; her husband, Steve Whitcomb; sister, Tori Thrower; and brother-in-law, Brent Thrower run the show. A CPA who worked for the city of Largo, Jodi seamlessly stepped in to fill her mothers shoes, taking over bookkeeping for the company. It made sense for Steve and Brent, both with a sales background, to each manage one restaurant. And Tori, who taught at Dale Mabry Elementary School and Skyview Elementary School, assists with day-to-day operations and major decisions at Jotos. From day one, the Zindas intended to create a family environment, not only to attract customers but also to build a legacy. Its always been my dream that we can keep this going, that it would stay in the family, Fred said. But he didnt want to drive [his daughters] into it, he said. They did their own thing, Carol said. When they were ready they joined the family business. We grew up in it, Jodi said. As teens, she and her sister worked their way through the ranks, from dishwasher to food prep to waitressing. Now, the familys third generation has joined the Jotos team. Jodis 16-year-old daughter, Harley, recently started working as a waitress. Shes the first of the grandchildren to work for Jotos, but Fred hopes she isnt the last. I hope the legacy keeps going, he said. The Zindas embraced their new home immediately, giving back to the community from the very beginning, sponsoring Jimmy Cope, a legendary local racecar driver who competed at Sunshine Speedway and donating pizzas to school functions, such as its Fall Festival. Jotos also has raised over $300,000 for All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg. I cant believe its been 40 years, Carol said. It really is a milestone for mom and pops to last in todays world.

The proposed sales tax holiday would begin June 1 and run through June 14. It would cover hurricane preparation supplies, such as flashlights, batteries, weather radios, and other basic items that are essential to building a disaster supply kit.

By taking the time to prepare today, we can work together to save lives and property in the event of a disaster. Rick McAllister, president and CEO of the Florida Retail Federation said, Floridians have learned many times that we must always be prepared to be self-reliant in the event of a major storm. A tax break is a great way to make readiness supplies more affordable for families, and the sales tax holiday will be a good opportunity for retailers to help raise awareness of the need for Floridas residents to be ready for storms and other emergencies. David Hart, Executive Vice President, Florida Chamber of Commerce said, Having a plan and being prepared makes all the difference when it comes to weathering a storm in Florida. Governor Scotts hurricane sales tax holiday will encourage more Floridians to prepare for future storms, and it will go a long way towards ensuring Floridians are safe.

(305) 923-4153011614 More than just a day at the zooMom takes a revitalizing day to reconnect with her daughtersAs I watched my two little girls ages 8 and 9 circling around on the Jungle Carousel at the Lowry Park Zoo, I had a thought: Can a day get any better than this? It was such an indescribable feeling, sitting there watching my daughters have fun and not worrying about anything else. The girls were so excited when I said we were going to go to Lowry Park Zoo. They couldnt wait because they hadnt been there in years and loved seeing all of the animals. I couldnt wait because it brought back memories of me taking them when they were younger. It reminded me of days when we could just get in the van and go on a whim. This was before we had restrictions like school and work. Since the girls were babies, two of my favorite places for a day trip were Lowry Park Zoo and Busch Gardens. I think the reason we liked these two attractions was because we love animals, and because we could travel there in less than an hour. I love going to the zoo, because you dont have to pay to park, and the admission price is reasonable. Since the last time we went, they even included most of the rides for free; in the past you had to pay for each ride. We would go to Busch Gardens because they had a preschool pass program where kids could get in free until they were 5 years old. I loved walking them in their stroller. It was great exercise! As they got older, they would walk. Now they run! Our recent trip just brought back so many wonderful memories. Not only memories of the zoo itself, but the people who shared the experiences with us. While we were driving there, we thought about all the different people who went with us, including grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. I realized so many times as parents, we get caught up in our everyday lives. I know I do. Even at the zoo, my phone went off with a text from work. Of course, I started texting back immediately, but youll never guess what happened. My battery that was charged just died. The phone just stopped working. I couldnt text back. I knew it was a sign that I needed to not be thinking about work and re-focus back on why I was there. We need to take time and have quality time with our kids. I needed to do this without distractions. My kids missed that, and I did too. I probably missed it more than them. My kids and I had a blast. The weather was one of Floridas gorgeous sunny days, but not too hot just right in temperature. Even though the parking lot was full, the zoo wasnt crowded. We were able to see everything we wanted to see and not have to wait too long for anything. The only ride we waited more than 20 minutes was the Expedition Africa Guided Safaris, which is an 18-minute tour of the animals on a trolley. On the other rides, like the Jungle Carousel and the Tasmanian Tiger Family Roller Coaster, the waits were minimal. The fun part was going on these rides with the girls. Yes, I even went on the roller coaster, and I am not one for roller coasters. I asked my girls what the best part of the day was and they said they couldnt pick just one part. They said everything was great! I had to agree. For me this day refreshed and revitalized me as a mom and built on the good memories I already have with my daughters.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

In fact in Dunedin they come from a spot along the causeway. Take a drive and you will see budding Olympic sailors working out every weekend. They have been doing it for several years and who knows one or more of them might be participating in the next Summer Olympics in 2016. The athletes training on the causeway are being coached by Robbie Daniel, 51, himself an Olympic class sailor who came within a hair of participating in two different Olympics in the late 1990s and during the last decade. He said it was a lot of work for him and a lot of work for the students who are learning from him now. It winds up being nearly a full time job, he said. There is all manner of training to do, not just with the boats, but also physical training. Those boats are pretty physical so you have to be fit. It is part of the training. It is at an elite level. It doesnt matter what sport it is; there is so much detail and it makes you a better athlete. Daniels Olympic sailing career really began when he was 12 years old and began racing competitively. He progressed through the system and ultimately took part in four Olympic campaigns. A Campaign is a four-year regimen that takes place between Olympics and it ends with trials and races to determine who the U.S. Olympic Sailing Committee chooses to represent the country at the Olympics. Daniel came close on two occasions. Twice I finished second in the last race, he said. Going into it I was tied, I still had a chance in the last race to win the selection. Daniel said the pain of not winning after four years of such hard work, wasnt as bad as he imagined. I was obviously disappointed, but you are kind of prepared for that all along, he said. Obviously, you are disappointed and heart broken, but it was not as devastating as I thought it would be. Right after the race you have to begin to pack up and get ready to go home and get on with life so that helped me not to dwell on it so much. It was around that time that Daniel began coaching and hes been at it ever since. His wife, Jill Nickerson, 54, is also his partner in the business, Red Deer Racing. She said when a young sailor comes to them for more advanced training it is quite a shock. Most kids are used to racing what we call Optis, boats designed for them and it is exciting for young kids. But after a while they get bored and some of them leave sailing, she said. We try to capture them and introduce them on an F-16 class boat which is bigger and faster. It is like a rocket ship by comparison and the kids get an adrenaline rush and say it is over the top. We have yet to get a kid on an F-16 that doesnt get off the water and say it was fabulous. It was a rush. The actual Olympic sailing boats are N-17s. Reed Deer Racing operates both and it isnt cheap. The N-17 costs anywhere from $31,000 to $33,000 and the F-16 costs about $20,000, said Nickerson. We really dont have a choice of what we buy. If you are going to train for the Olympics then you have to do it in boats approved by them. The boats are multi-hulled; they are catamarans, Hobie-cats. Nickerson said the sailing competition in the upcoming Summer Olympics has been changed and she said it is for the better, that there is now a level playing field. They took sailing out of the last Olympics but now it is back in, she said. The difference is that this time they have dictated that there must be a mixed crew, a male and a female. So everybody is starting out with a clean slate. There is no Olympic history with mixed crews. Training mixed crews is what Daniel is doing on the Causeway. One of his students is Sarah Streater, 18, a senior in high school in FortExtension offers landscape services certification classesLARGO Anyone providing landscape services in Pinellas County must complete Best Management Practices training and obtain a vehicle decal for landscape maintenance per Pinellas County fertilizer and landscaping ordinance #10-06. This requirement includes all employees who use mowers, edgers, leaf blowers or other landscaping equipment. The requirement also includes tree service employees. Pinellas County waters are experiencing a decline in water quality as a result of excess nutrient loading through stormwater runoff. Nutrients from fertilizers and landscape debris are major contributors to water pollution. Pinellas County is dedicated to addressing water pollution throughout the county, and education of the industry service professionals is key to improving water quality in Pinellas County and Tampa Bay. The Pinellas County Extension offers Landscape BMP certification classes monthly. Classes are offered in English and in Spanish. The class cost is $15. To see a class schedule and register for a class session, visit www.LandscapeBMP.eventbrite.com. For more information about the countywide fertilizer and landscape maintenance ordinance, visit www.pinellascounty.org/fertilizer or call 464-4425. Spanish speakers needing assistance with registration can call 464-4605. Lauderdale. She makes the four-hour drive to Dunedin every weekend to train. It is crazy but it is a lot of fun, she said. There are great sailors in this class and it is lots of fun to compete against top sailors. Streater has been sailing with Matthew Whitehead, 21, a USF student from Panama City. She feels they have the chemistry they need to be successful. We have been sailing together for a while, she said. The last time we competed together we placed second, he is my main crew. Their goal? Predictably, the Olympics. Im planning on trying for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, said Streater. Hopefully we can be the top USA boat and then go and win a medal. Do we have a realistic chance? I think so. We are a top team right now and we feel good about competing against other teams. Daniel agrees it is a good goal to have, but wonders if it might not be a bit premature. The goal to make the Olympics is possible, anything is possible, he said. You have to start off with that attitude, realistically they should be shooting for the 2020 games, but none of these guys want to do that, they want it now, four years is a long time for them. As for his own Olympic aspirations, Daniel said they are probably over. I have it in me to have another go at it, he said. But you have to look at what makes sense. It is a lot of money; you have to find a way to pay for it all. Im more focused on coaching and making a living. Olympic campaigning doesnt do anything but cost you money. Daniel said he is encouraged that the U.S. Olympic Committee has begun to fund his sport more than it ever did before. Despite the fact that he likely wont compete for an Olympic spot anymore, Daniel says he has no intention of giving up sailing, ever. I love being out there and the competition, he said. I can combine the joy of sailing with the joy of helping others enjoy sailing as much as they can. His methods must be working. Take it from Streater, one of his students. Robbie is a good coach, I absolutely love Robbie coaching, she said. I learn something every day. Hes a great sailor and whatever you can get out of him will make you great. I learn so much just being with him.

With the jet stream firmly entrenched just to our north and an arctic vortex creating extreme cold conditions that we havent seen since 2010, you have to believe that with a little luck this current trend is a weather anomaly that could easily change over the next couple of weeks. Inshore, water temperatures plummeted to 52 degrees late last week. When it gets that cold you really need to slow down or even stop your presentation. Working channel edges with scented soft-plastics can bring steady action from schools of hungry ladyfish. Turning those fresh caught ladyfish into cut bait for redfish and the occasional gator trout can turn an otherwise tough day into a quality fish day. Finding a lee-side shoreline can be tough on a north wind, but they do exist. Targeting the low mid-afternoon tide is your best bet, the water has warmed a bit and the fish are holding over the outer edges of the flats that are laden with large stretches of sand that intertwine with sparse grass patches. Fish seem to feed well in this scenario and it may only last for a couple of hours. Fanning out multiple rods with medium sized chunks of ladyfish will allow you to work a large area. Near shore, light tackle bottom fishing slowed down a bit but was still good this past weekend despite cold water temperatures. Calm conditions made for easy runs out a couple of miles for mixed bag action for grunts, sheepshead, and hogfish. Targeting hard bottom in 20 to 40 feet of water with live shrimp on a knocker rig with a 1-ounce sinker is a great way to put some fish in the cooler. Seatrout as well as silver trout can be found just off area beaches right now. Anglers fishing Redington pier have been catching both species consistently for a couple of weeks now. Fishing at night with glow colored soft plastic jigs will produce good numbers of adult seatrout. The daytime action consists primarily of silver trout, which can be caught on brightly colored soft plastics. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

On a back-to-school shopping trip, Henry and his mother encounter Frank Chambers, a man both intimidating and clearly in need of help, who convinces them to take him into their home and later is revealed to be an escaped convict. The events of this long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.That Awkward MomentGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Imogen Poots, Mackenzie Davis and Jessica Lucas Director: Tom Gormican Rated: R Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller star in the Rrated comedy about three best friends who find themselves where we have all been at that confusing moment in every dating relationship when you have to decide So where is this going? Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller) are living a carefree single life in New York City when their best friend Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) learns his wife wants a divorce. In a show of support, the three longtime buddies promise each other that they will avoid commitment at all costs and stay single together, but their plans are derailed when Mikey starts to surreptitiously date his ex, and Jason and Daniel unexpectedly fall in love. Soon each man finds himself at the most crucial point in a relationship, a moment when so becomes the most terrifying word in the English language.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Best Night EverGenre: Comedy Cast: Desiree Hall, Samantha Colburn, Eddie Ritchard and Crista Flanagan Director: Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer Rated: R Bride-to-be Claire, her sister Leslie, fun-loving Zoe, and quirky new friend Janet set off to Las Vegas for a one-night bachelorette party that turns out to be more than they bargained for. A series of unexpected adventures including, getting kicked out of a strip club, being mugged and getting pummeled by the Las Vegas reigning gelatin-wrestling champion, Veronica, rip them from the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip and places them smack dab in Vegas seedy underbelly. Determined to keep their bachelorette party dreams alive, the girls band together and embark on the wildest night in bachelorette party history. Fueled by sex and booze, this raunchy, riotously hilarious, outof-control, blowout is, for better or worse, all caught on tape. And is destined to go down as the Best Night Ever.Tims VermeerGenre: Documentary Director: Raymond Joseph Teller Rated: PG-13 Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenisons adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.At MiddletonGenre: Romance Cast: Andy Garcia, Vera Farmiga, Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Nicholas Braun, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt Director: Adam Rodgers Rated: R Academy Award nominees Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga star as straight-laced George and eccentric Edith, two strangers who meet on their childrens campus tour at the idyllic Middleton College. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. But what begins as anOpening this weekend afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever. A light-hearted romance for adults on the surface, At Middleton is a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

PETERSBURG Yonder Mountain String Band will bring its winter tour to the Tampa Bay area Friday, Jan. 31, 8 p.m., performing at Jannus Live, 16 Second St. N. Tickets are $23.50. Call 5650550 or visit www.jannuslive.com. Blending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own, according to their bio provided by Paradigm Talent Agency. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but theyve created their own music that transcends any genre. The Colorado-based foursome has crisscrossed the country for more than a decade now playing such varied settings as festivals, rock clubs, Red Rocks Amphitheater in the bands home state, and event the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The bands loyal fan base has been built from this diverse setting of music venues as fans latched on to their genre-defying original sound. In between tours, the band spent time working on its fifth studio album. The Show, released in 2009, is their second album with rock producer Tom Rothrock. While some might scratch their heads as to why a string band would want a rock producer, this decision was a natural choice for the band. We dont have a lot of nostalgia for the past, said banjo player Dave Johnston in a press release. You shouldnt try to recreate the 1940s. I like to think of us as informed by the past and all the great performers before us. But we also want to look forward rather than give people something that has already been perfected. The Show has the similar acoustic instrumentation Adam Aijala on guitar, Johnston on banjo, Jeff Austin on mandolin and Ben Kaufman on bass with all four singing as many of its classic bluegrass forefathers. The record consists of 13 songs all written by Yonder. The band has long cited such varied influences as the bluegrass of Del McCoury, Johnson Mountain Boys, Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe, Osborne Brothers as well as the punk rock of Bad Religion, Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys. Somewhere in between these two tent poles are early 20th century composers and alternative rock bands like Grandaddy and Postal Service. Its all funneled through the bands unique chemistry, honed since they first met at an informal club performance in 1998. Joining Yonder Mountain String Band will be The Travelin McCourys, featuring Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle and Alan Bartram on bass along with featured guests on guitar and vocals. According to the bands bio provided by Crossover Touring, The Travelin McCourys is the latest incarnation of the most awarded band in the history of bluegrass The Del McCoury Band. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie and Rob continue their fathers work a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into peoples lives. Based in tradition the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful but they also bring something fresh and rejuvenating to the stage. The band has a confidence that comes with having paid their dues with 20 years on the bluegrass road.Photo by JAY BLAKESBERG/PARADIGM TALENT AGENCYJannus Live welcomes Yonder Mountain String Band, above, and The Travelin McCourys, below, for a performance Jan. 31.
