The three candidates are running for a chance to serve Pinellas County in the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election March 11. The winner will fill the position left vacant when longtime Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Young served District 13 in congress for more than 40 years. The debate, a special edition of Political Connections, broadcast on Bay News 9, was the result of a partnership between SPC, Bay News 9 and the Tampa Bay Times. The event was sponsored by AARP. The debate was moderated by the Times political editor Adam C. Smith, Times assistant managing editor Amy Hollyfield and Bay News 9 senior anchor Al Ruechel. Write-in candidate Michael Levinson did not attend. The nights event was fast-paced with a variety of topics covered in what was described as lightning rounds, where single word answers were preferred. Other questions allowed candidates 30 to 60 seconds to make their case. An opening statement started things out. Jolly told viewers that he had spent 20 years working at the side of the late Rep. Young. He said he wants to continue Youngs work to empower families to make their own decisions. He favors less taxes and less regulation. He stressed that he is a Pinellas County native. He was born in Dunedin and now lives in Indian Shores. Overby said when he began to campaign for a seat in Congress a year ago, he did so to bring people who are disenfranchised with the process back into the fold. HeLadies gather at Highland for a weekend of scrapbooking By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Scrapbooking is a serious pastime. Just ask any of the ladies who set up stacks of colored pages; plastic boxes of glue, pens and markers; miniature shapes bought at craft stores and several types of cutting tools for an entire weekend of scrapbooking at Highland Recreation Complex. Everything has to be readily available, explained Sherri Snyder, a particularly organized scrapbooker who sits beside a spinning rack of clear hanging folders displayed on top of a cart of colored drawers. Crop Till You Drop, held Jan. 31 to Feb. 2, took up a whole gymnasium at the recreation complex. The event gives women a chance to step away from their busy schedules, spread out materials for several days and devote their focus on a fun activity with friends. A lot of women dont do this at home, with kids and work, said Amy Cornelius of Spring Hill, a scrapbooking vendor and participant at the event. So they come however many times a year and they dont have the phone bugging them, husbands are leaving them alone. Youre just here. Scrapbooking events, called crops, are held all over the state. Snyder, who hails from Melbourne, attends events about two weekends a month as a vendor and participant. Its the people you meet, and the fun and the laughter and the relationships thats what is important to me personally, she said. After the success of Largos first two annual Crop Till You Drop events, held in the fall, the city decided to add a second crop to the yearly calendar, said Krista Pincince, program manager for Highland. Fifty-one people were registered for the weekend crop. The event has grown continuously, she said. The tradition started as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Parks, Arts and Recreation department. The city held a 50-hour crop, but organizers quickly discovered that even diehard scrapbook fans dont literally stay overnight, Pincince said. Now the event closes between midnight and 8 a.m. The Highland staff served six meals between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening when the event concluded.

But that wasnt the case the first weekend of February. Pinellas County officials closed the park Saturday morning, and it remained closed Sunday and Monday. Just after midnight Saturday, a loss of water pressure was recorded on one of Utilities monitoring devices. Calls from the public began coming in about the same time, according to Mary Burrell, with county Communications. A mandatory boil water order was issued, per EPA rules, for residents of southern Tierra Verde south of Madonna Boulevard and all residents living along the Pinellas Bayway, including those living off Sands Point Drive. Burrell said approximately 1,000 customers were affected. Crews responded to the problem and finally found a Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSPinellas County workers search for the source of a water supply problem Saturday afternoon that caused the closure of Fort De Soto Park and a mandatory boil water order for some residents in Tierra Verde.

Food will be provided at all three conversations. Three dates and times are available to accommodate busy schedules: Breakfast will be served on Friday, Feb. 21 8 to 9:30 a.m., at Village Inn Restaurant, 13105 Walsingham Road.

Glynis Rutter, who recently participated in the program, was very impressed with the simplicity of the entire process, according to a city press release. I was amazed at just how easy it was, she said. Glynis helped her 91-year-old mother, Lilian, work with the citys community development department to complete several badly needed improvements, including new windows and replacing a damaged roof that has needed regular patching and repairs in the last few years. Glynis learned about the Housing Rehabilitation Program through some neighbors. She visited Largo.com, downloaded and submitted an application and soon was speaking with a representative from the community development department. Somebody explained the process to us every step of the way. It wasnt the least bit intimidating, she said. The Housing Rehabilitation Program offers loans with interest rates up to 2 percent to Largo residents who meet certain income eligibility requirements.

4A Leader, February 6, 2014said if elected, he would have a chance to bring the peoples concerns to a larger stage. He said he agreed with some of the priorities of his opponents, but there were grave differences between the three. Sink said she was sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. She wants to end partisanship to get things done. She said she is an experienced businesswoman who served as the states chief financial officer and worked together to bring Democrats and Republicans together. She wants to fight to protect jobs, Social Security, veterans benefits and bring the voice of the people in Pinellas County to Washington.Lightning round questionsShould Florida accept federal money to expand Medicaid? Overby said yes; Sink said no. Jolly said not unless there is a guarantee the money cant be taken away. Should the federal government be required to have a balanced budget? Overby and Jolly said yes; Sink said no. Should the state allow medical marijuana? Jolly and Overby said no; Sink said yes, but added she did not support any program that would allow pot shops.Question of residencySink was asked about accusations of being a carpetbagger. Prior to Youngs death, she was a longtime resident of Hillsborough County. She replied that when she considered running for District 13 seat, she asked herself, Do I share the values of the people of this district? My political values are very well aligned with Pinellas County, she said, adding that she had worked in Pinellas County for 25 years in the business community and her charitable work. Jolly said that Rep. Young had taught every school group that visited his office that the House of Representatives was the peoples house, something he would continue to respect if elected. Alex wants to change Washington, I believe representation should be local, she said. Overby said he didnt think residency was a determining factor. A lot of Pinellas County people are interested in the concept, he said. He said he had spent a great deal of time working in the trenches, spending time in the community. When Sink was asked if she would stay in Pinellas if she lost the election, she said, Im not losing.ObamacareA member of the audience asked the candidates if they supported a repeal of Obamacare. Jolly said yes. He said Obamacare was founded on a premise that now is being called the lie of the year. He said it should be repealed and alternatives offered in its place. He said Obamacare was hurting Pinellas County residents and businesses. Overby said he was in favor of getting the cost of health care down. Some parts of Obamacare are good, he said. But there needs to be less focus on insurance and more on reduced costs. Sink said she believes that Americans have the right to health insurance and secondly affordable health care. Obamacare cant be repealed because we cant go back to where we were, she said. She said she knew people who were thrilled with Obamacare. She asked if it were right to go back to a time when people could be refused insurance due to pre-existing medical conditions or when seniors had more problems with access to health care. Jolly said the problems Sink mentioned could be fixed. I believe in less government, not more, he said. Overby said many of the arguments ongoing over healthcare and insurance dated back to the Clinton administration. He suggested getting insurance out of the way so work could be done to fix affordability.Flood insurance reformOverby said he supported the plan recently passed by the Senate to delay insurance rate hikes for four years to allow time to work on real solutions. He supports expanding the public option and more involvement by private insurers. Sink said she had reached out to insurance companies and agents as well as local Realtors. She said she offered four or five suggestions on her website. She favors looking for solutions now and exploring what can be done with the private sector instead of kicking the can down the road for four years. Jolly said Biggert-Waters flood reform is a bad law today and it will be a bad law in four years. He favors use of private insurance and diversifying the risk pool. The answer is not in Washington. The answer is in the private sector. It is in Tallahassee, he said. Sink reminded Jolly that the National Flood Insurance Program was started due to a lack of private insurers.Immigration reformSink and Overby said they support immigration reform and a path to citizenship as proposed by a bipartisan Senate plan. Overby said he does not support parts of the plan that are too expensive. Jolly does not support a path to citizenship. He said people who have broken the law should not be rewarded and suggested that something needed to be done about businesses that employ illegal workers. We cant insult those who have done it (became a citizen) legally, he said.Social SecurityOn the question of Social Security and Medicare benefits, Jolly admits something needs to be done; however, he does not support cutting benefits to those who are vested in the program. He defines vested as having worked for 40 quarters, or 10 years. He does not advocate long-term entitlement for those not now in the system. Overby did not favor Jollys approach. As a 27year-old, he asked who would end up paying. He said the plan would leave him without benefits. Jolly is 41 and Sink is 65. Overby favors other alternatives such as a voluntary program to drop out of the system as a charitable donation. He does not favor forcing people out. I will fight to support Medicare and Social Security, Sink said. She said she went on the program this year after paying in for 40 years. She said she didnt want to worry that her 25-year-old daughter would not have access to health care when she is 65.Student financial aidOne SPC student asked the candidates about what could be done to make education and financial aid more affordable. Overby said costs of education had gone up dramatically due in part to the subsidies. He said federal government should be less involved to allow colleges to become more competitive. Sink said it was important for government to continue to invest in the future and ensure students have access to student aid. Jollys plan ties the cost of education to the success of the school. Theyre offering a product to the students, he said.Other topicsJolly said he is OK with the states amendment on gay marriage because it is a matter between the partners and their God. Overby said he supports the ban. Sink said she supports gay marriage. Overby supports the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Sink also is in support, but added more needed to be done to ensure adequate background checks. Jolly supports doing whatever must be done to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Sink supports raising the minimum wage. Overby is opposed. Jolly supports finding a suitable wage rate and then tying future raises to the cost index. On a local issue, Jolly and Overby oppose light rail in Pinellas County. Sink is in favor. The moderators brought up the subject of Jollys lobbyist activities against Social Security and for offshore drilling, which he said were not true. He said he worked to negotiate a ban against offshore drilling. He said he worked on a measure that would guarantee Social Security for everyone. The candidates were asked if there were things in which they disagreed with their party. Sink said she disagreed with Obamas plan to implement chain CPI, which would lower benefit amounts. Jolly said he disagrees with his partys handling of flood insurance reform and changes to Social Security. Overby said the Libertarian Party was often bullheaded and overzealous. He said he was trying to find solutions for all, not just one part of the population. Jolly and Overby oppose Common Core standards for education. Jolly believes education should be a decision made in the classrooms. Overby believes the closer education is to families the better. Sink believes standards are important to measure students who will be competing on a national and worldwide setting. The candidates were asked one question on foreign policy: Would they support more aggressive military action in Syria? Sink said no. I dont believe in putting more boots on the ground in a country where we dont understand the dynamics, she said. Jolly said yes. (Bashar) Assad used chemical weapons to kill people and children, he said. We should have intervened right away. Overby said no. He said he had talked to Syrians right after the incident. Syrians didnt want us interfering, he said. The U.S. going in and killing more people would not have helped. Other remarksWhichever candidate is elected will have a short time to serve before they are up for re-election again in November. Sink said she would spend her time working with FEMA on flood insurance. Jolly agreed with Sink that flood insurance reform should be a priority. But he added that constituent service had to be a major task. Young served for 43 years and he took care of Pinellas County, he said. Overby said he would focus on simplifying the tax code and getting taxes and spending down. If flood insurance is on a four-year hold, it can wait, he said. I want to make sure to keep as much money in the pockets of the people as possible. Sink said she wanted to go to Washington to be the voice for Pinellas County. I would be honored to serve as your congresswoman, she said. Overby said he had spent a year working with the community to find out what the people want. Im not part of the political machine, he said. Im not part of a party I have to answer to. I can do what the people want. Jolly said it was not easy to put yourself up before the public when you run for office. He said he would take his core values to Washington. I want less regulation and less taxes for the people in Pinellas County. For more information on the candidates, visit davidjolly.com, lucasoverby.com or alexfor congress.com. DEBATE, from page 1AAttendees sound off on candidates By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Pinellas County voters in District 13 were left with plenty to talk about following the hour-long debate between Republican David Jolly, Libertarian Lucas Overby and Democrat Alex Sink at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Monday night. The three candidates are vying to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat left vacant in that district when Rep. C.W. Bill Young died in October. The winner will be chosen in a March 11 special election. Several who were in the audience for the debate lauded the events fast-paced format, which featured a lightning round where single-word yes or no answers were encouraged and questions where candidates were given more time 30 to 60 seconds to respond. I have to commend the [debates] sponsors and moderators, said the Rev. Fr. Robert Swick, commander, JFK 1963 chapter and veterans advocate, of Dunedin. They worked hard to come up with an interesting format. Jeff Johnson, state director for AARP Florida, which sponsored the event, thought the format allowed for really good discussions on a variety of issues. He added, I think the moderators did a good job. They jumped around, but in a good way, and kept the pace up. It kept the candidates on their feet. Seminole City Councilor Chris Burke also commended the break from the usual debate format, particularly the lightning section. You didnt just get the candidates up there going, Blah blah blah, he said, which kept the audience more engaged. Of the many topics discussed, different issues resonated with different attendees. Camille Christian, a student at SPC, of Safety Harbor, was very interested in what the candidates had to say on the issue of financial aid for college and immigration law. But she was disappointed they didnt spend more time discussing legalizing marijuana. Corey Harpin of Clearwater agreed that student loans were a hot topic of the night. We need to reform the way funds are given out so students can afford to go to school, he said. But he wishes the candidates had spent more time discussing education reform overall. I have a 14-month-old son at home, he said. The decisions we make today are going to affect him. An operations manager at a manufacturing factory, Harpin also felt that the topic of expanding manufacturing jobs in the county and supporting small, local businesses should have been discussed. Though AARP members each have their own set of interests, all can appreciate discussions on social security, healthcare and Medicaid, Johnson said. But one question he thinks candidates should have answered at the debate: How can people currently working ever afford to retire? Its an important question to consider, he said, with pensions going away and an unstable economy. Burke wishes more time was spent on the goals for District 13. We didnt get any of their thoughts on the topic. Two issues stood out for Seminole City Councilor Patricia Plantamura: immigration reform and healthcare. Immigrants enrich both Americas culture and its economy, she said. Statistical data shows that immigrants are business creators. Theyre consumers. Theyre living in homes. Theyre a wonderful aspect of life in this country. She added, Its a non-partisan issue. Congress just needs to get it done. As for the candidates themselves, Burke felt there was no clear winner in the debate. Each candidate won on different topics, he said. Undecided on which candidate to support, he said he came to Mondays debate curious to see who they are and what they have to say. I liked David Jollys answer on being from Pinellas County, Burke said. I think he won on the local versus carpetbagging debate. As for Sink, she overstated her bipartisanship, Burke said, and lost time where she could have been more specific on various issues. He was also impressed by Overby, whom he didnt know much about prior to the debate. He was very well-spoken and informed on the issues, he said. Swick, a Democrat who supports Jolly, agrees. The young man, the libertarian, did a very fine job, he said. I liked his poise and his strength of fact. Everything he said was backed up by facts. He added, I didnt appreciate Sink. It seemed like she was hogging up the time. Christian, initially an undecided voter, didnt know much about any of the candidates prior to the debate. I thought all three candidates had something good to say, she said. But now she supports Sink, she said. She seemed very sincere and I appreciated that she shared her personal experiences. Harpin was also undecided going into the debate and left it fairly confident that he will vote for Sink. I really liked her, he said, and how she stayed on topic. I was taken aback by the runaround Jolly gave us. I didnt feel like he gave very direct answers on issues like the Affordable Care Act. Plantamura, a supporter of Sink before the debate, was also not very happy with Jollys answer on the Affordable Care Act. Because of the ACA, shes had healthcare since Jan. 1, she said. Republican or Democrat this is a bipartisan benefit, she said. I was very disappointed in Mr. Jollys shallow answer. As for the debate as a whole, Plantamura said SPC has a lot to be proud of. This whole event is a feather in the cap of the city of Seminole, she said. SPC Seminole provost James Olliver, said the school and its Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, were honored to host the event. St. Petersburg College always welcomes the opportunity to be a community partner, he said. And promoting civic engagement is one of the Institutes primary missions. Debating the policy issues, followed by informed voting, is what democracy is all about. TBN graphic by SUZETTE PORTERThree candidates campaigning for the District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives faced off during a Feb. 3 debate in the Digitorium at St. Pete Colleges Seminole campus. SCRAPBOOKING, from page 1Agymnasium where the scrapbookers worked was an added bonus and welcome method to stretch ones legs between pages, Snyder and Cornelius agreed. Were definitely going down the slide later, Snyder added. Snyder pointed out that scrapbooking, while it involves a lot of sitting, is a healthy diversion for the mind. It is a proven fact: women that craft I dont (just) mean scrapbook, but sew, knit, quilt, crochet live longer. Its a stress-relief, Snyder said. The event attracted several groups who meet regularly to share materials, ideas and the love of scrapbooks. One such group of a dozen women were set up side by side along a table in the center of the gym. After gifting one of their members, Karen Rodgers, with roses for her birthday, the group all wearing red, pink and white set off to take a picture together. Then each decorated a page on which the developed photograph would appear. This has been a great crop, said Mary Lubin of Safety Harbor as she pressed letters to spell out Crop Till You Drop. They said breakfast at 8. At 8 oclock, its out there. Lunch is exactly on time. Her friends agreed that organization is important. We totally know disorganized, said Julie Wilmarth of St. Petersburg. The group meets monthly at the craft store, Whim So Doodle in St. Petersburg. They started getting together primarily out of necessity, said Dianne Jerkins with a laugh. We needed tools from each other, she said. Everybody brought a friend, and before we knew it, there were 12 of us. The group participates in Operation Write Home, making cards for soldiers serving overseas to use to send their greetings back home. Mostly though, we just drink margaritas, Lupin said with a mischievous smile. The good, clean fun is expensive, they admitted. After all, scrapbooking is the art of spending almost $30 to frame a 99-cent photo, Lupin said. Do you see the 80 different products that were (using) to put on one photo? she asked the group in a moment of introspection. You have to have them all, Wilmarth insisted. Oh, you need them all, said Toni Slowgrove of Oldsmar. On a more serious note, scrapbooking is a means to a social end, said Dianne Thurn of St. Petersburg. Were all very different. Wed all probably not be friends if we didnt have scrapbooking in our mix, she said. The group supports each other, through cancer treatments and difficult surgeries, she added. They make every holiday festive and keep track of each others birthdays on a group calendar. Sometimes people dont take the time to do that, Thurn explained. It is really an amazing group. Teresa Nimrick of Largo, sitting with another group, said Crop Till You Drop gave her a chance to work on her own projects, a needed respite in her busy schedule of helping others. I take the weekend here to come and work for myself, she said. I like to be able to tell a story. But the conversation with friends taken up as Nimrick looked through pictures for her next project after finishing pages commemorating her sons graduation is part of the reason she came to the event. We could all be at home scrapbooking on our dining room tables why do we want to do that? Snyder asked. We want to get and meet people and talk and have fun.Photos by JULIANA A.

However, the board also will represent the Clearwater-Largo Road Community Redevelopment District. The Community Development Advisory Board, or CDAB, provides the commissioners with advice and citizen oversight of the community development department. Its tasks include reviewing its annual budget, capital improvement projects and the administration of community development block grants and housing initiatives, among others. The new board has similar goals, but will be focused on the redevelopment districts. Members will advise commissioners on: community redevelopment initiatives, incentive applications, plans and programs the districts annual report, budget, and capital improvement projects providing information to and obtaining input from residents, business and property owners about the citys programs to help establish new needs, plans and programs Because the new board will be made up of the already-established advisory board, commissioners questioned whether it would be sufficiently represented by those within the redevelopment districts. Commissioner Woody Brown asked if the new board might eventually break away from CDAB and be represented by solely members vested in the businesses and homes in the downtown area, once the CRAAB gets legs. City staff assured him that an independent board was the longterm goal, as the responsibilities and scope of CRAAB, as well as redevelopment districts themselves, grew. Brown later apologized for the bad joke. The four extra members of the new board must be appointed, a task that fell entirely to Mayor Pat Gerard, as per the Largo charter. The charter review commission didnt look at the mayor appointing every person on every board? she questioned. City Attorney Alan Zimmet said that the committee did have a full discussion on the issue. However, the members did not recommend changes to how advisory board members were appointed.That doesnt mean you cant propose the changes, Zimmet said.Gerard suggested that the commission talk about the issue when they considered charter amendments. Because, let me tell you, thats a lot of people, she said. Staff plans to schedule CRAABs first meeting in April, according to city documents. The meeting will consist of organizing the new board and presenting information about the districts. Anyone who wishes to join the new board should contact the mayors office at 587-6702 or by emailing pgerard@largo.com.For more about Largos redevelopment districts, visit bit.ly/1eUjD0Q.

BANKRUPTCY~BUSINESS andBANKRUPTCY~CONSUMER011614 Eight to run for Latvalas seat after longtime commissioner retiresBrickfield brings the list of announced candidates to eight five Republicans, one Democrat and two NPAs. Brickfield represented District 1 on the commission from 2008 to 2012. Latvala was one of four commissioners targeted by a group of citizens in what was commonly referred to as the eight is enough lawsuit. The citizens claimed the commissions longest-serving members were in violation of term limits approved by referendum in 1996 but never implemented. The state Supreme Court ruled term limits unconstitutional before they were ever added to the Pinellas County Charter. In the end, a Circuit Court judge ruled in favor of the commissioners. His opinion concurred with the county attorneys that a 2012 Supreme Court decision on term limits could not be applied retroactivity in Pinellas. Latvala, Seel, Welch and Morroni are free to run for election as many times as they want. Morroni, who also was elected to the commission in 2000, has announced his bid for reelection in November. Two others have announced a run for the District 6 seat fellow Republican Thomas Rask and Libertarian of Florida candidate Jack Harris. Commissioner Norm Roche is seeking a second term representing District 2 in November. Fellow Republican Ed Hooper has announced that he is running and Largo Mayor Pat Gerard, a Democrat, also has announced. Potential candidates still must qualify during the qualifying period in May and June.Long career of serviceLatvala was first elected to serve District 4 on the county commission in 2000. Prior to that, starting in 1992, she served two terms on the Pinellas County School Board. She is currently the commissions vice-chair, and by tradition, most likely would have been picked to serve as chair next year. Latvala currently serves as the chair of Tampa Bay Water. She is chair of the MPOs School Transportation Safety Committee, the countys Business Technology Services Board, the Consolidated Justice Information Systems Committee and Prescription Drug Task Force. She is a member of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board and the countys Health and Human Services Coordinating Council. She is past chair of the Tourist Development Council, Economic Development Council, Public Safety Coordinating Council and the countys Value Adjustment Board. She is a former member of the countys Charter Review Commission. She has served on many statewide boards, and is currently an executive board member for the Florida Association of Counties. She also serves on the board of a number of local civic organizations. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER In a surprise move, longtime Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala announced Jan. 28 that she is not seeking reelection in November. Latvala had previously announced that she would run to keep her job representing District 4. Her name still appears with seven others as announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. After much soul-searching, Latvala said Jan. 28, Ive decided not to seek re-election. She said her kids were in high school when she first ran for election. Now they are 35 and 36 and fixing to give me a grandchild, she said. Latvala became somewhat emotional as she made her surprise announcement. She said serving on the commission was the greatest honor of my life. You will be missed, but family is No. 1, said Commissioner John Morroni one of the first to speak after a moment of shocked silence. You will be missed. It was a real honor to serve with you, Commissioner Ken Welch added. I really am bummed out now. Commission Chair Karen Seel said, Im bummed out too and a little surprised, but family comes first. Seel added that serving on the commission often means that family has to come second. Seel made public Latvalas engagement to Jay Powers when she congratulated the couple at a recent commission meeting.Race for District 4 seatIf Latvala had stayed in the race, she likely would have faced several competitors in the Aug. 26 Republican primary, as Scott Fisher, Timothy Keffalas and Wanda Kimsey had already announced they would run. So far, only Jack McAdoo has announced for the Democrats. Two other announced candidates, Dustan Showers and Marcus Harrison, are not affiliated with any party. Since Latvala dropped out of the race, two more Republicans have jumped in. Johnny Johnson Jr. is a new name on the list of announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. Former County Commissioner Neil Brickfield posted on his Facebook page that he was jumping into the race as of Jan. 31.

Senate says no to flood insurance hikes By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County residents received a glimmer of hope last week that at least some relief may be coming to combat the unintended consequences of reform on the National Flood Insurance Program. The U.S. Senate approved by a vote of 67-32 Jan. 30 legislation proposed by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson. According to a press release from Nelsons office, the bill will delay many of the flood insurance rate increases for four years, during which time FEMA would be required to study the affordability of the policies and re-evaluate the accuracy of new flood maps. Pinellas has been described as ground zero due to the number of properties affected by sky-high flood insurance rate hikes due to implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Horror stories about monstrous rate increases have been told for months. The real estate industry is reeling. Government officials are concerned that property values could plummet. Pinellas County Commissioner Chair Karen Seel recently took a trip to Washington, D.C., to try to get federal lawmakers to understand the problems flood insurance reform was causing local residents. She reported at a recent commission meeting that she believed the trip did some good, which may be true at least in the Senate. We are finally coming to the point at which we can grant homeowners and businesses some relief from the huge, gargantuan sometimes tenfold increases in flood insurance premiums, Nelson said in a press release. Nelson and fellow Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu from Louisiana took the lead in asking for a rate-hike delay. Congress provided some relief for some of the affected homeowners when it passed the $1.1 trillion government-funding bill in December, Nelson said. The bill prevents the government from spending money this fiscal year to enforce higher premiums on homeowners due to the new flood maps. It also gives FEMA 60 days to provide Congress with a report on ways to keep rates more affordable. But the budget bills requirements were only a partial solution, Nelson said. Legislation passed Jan. 30 attempts to provide greater relief. Nelson pointed out that the measure still must pass the House where tea party members have said they intend to defeat it. Gov. Rick Scott applauded the Senates action and released a statement Thursday evening. I would like to thank the bi-partisan coalition of members in the U.S. Senate for their leadership and support on passing legislation to delay increases in flood insurance premiums for Floridians, Scott said. Florida has clearly been a donor state to the National Florida Insurance Program by contributing $16 billion over the last three decades, which is nearly four times the amount that Florida homeowners have received back in claims. This legislation, while not perfect, will provide relief to Florida families who have been disproportionally targeted by these unfair federal flood insurance rates hikes. I encourage their colleagues in the House to also support this common sense measure. The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber, which has been very active in efforts to get relief from the negative effects of flood insurance reform, sent out an update after the Senate vote. It will be a challenge to get it passed by the U.S. House and signed by the President, the email said. Both House Speaker (John) Boehner and President Obama have made it clear that they do not support a delay. In addition, none of the proposed relief measures applies to commercial property.

According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Julius Allen Balogh, 73, was traveling eastbound on Bay Pines Boulevard, when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a light pole on the south side of the road. The light pole cracked and fell onto the vehicle. Balogh was transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Deputies said Balogh may have lost control of the vehicle due to a medical condition. Duke Energy responded, took down power and removed the pole from atop the car.

According to the sheriffs report, the abuse occurred at various locations in the county on dates between 2008 and 2012. Detectives began their investigation on Jan. 29, after the victim disclosed to an acquaintance that the suspect had sexual contact with her on multiple occasions. Detectives interviewed the victim and eventually made contact with Terry Dale Alford, 33. Alford denied the allegations, but detectives said enough probable cause existed to arrest and charge Alford with three counts of sexual battery on a child under 12.

Missouri Ave. about 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, shortly after the Super Bowl had ended, to order food. The manager at the restaurant noticed that he was intoxicated and had a child in the back seat. She asked him to pull his car over while she waited on his food to cook. Instead, she called Clearwater Police. Officers responding noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from Higgins. His eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and he failed several sobriety tests, the report said. He told officers he had been watching the Super Bowl and had consumed five beers. When asked why he was driving with a child in the car, he said that he didnt think he was intoxicated. Higgins was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a $2,500 bond.St. Petersburg man arrested for child abuseST.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK Bill Jackson, entrepreneur of the adventurous sporting goods store in Pinellas Park that bore his name, died at 3:45 a.m. Jan. 29, 2014. He was 98. His health began deteriorating after breaking his neck in a fall Jan. 6, said his son, Darry Jackson. But up until that point, Bill Jackson was still going to the store several times a week. Even two days before his death, still wearing a halo brace and barely able to talk, he had one request. He kept saying, I want to go to work, according to his son. I dont think he really comprehended that he had a halo on, Darry said. Bill Jackson was unique in that he not only rbuilt a successful and evolving business on five acres along what would become U.S. 19, but that he filled it with the ambitious and pioneering facilities needed to pass along his passion for the outdoors. Bill Jacksons Shop for Adventure includes four classrooms, a 100,000-gallon indoor pool to teach scuba diving, a gun range and an indoor training ski slope. If you were an accountant, youd look at that and say, You dont make enough money off that. You should put merchandise there, Darry explained. But he wanted to be able to teach and give everybody an outdoor experience. Bill Jackson was born in 1915 and didnt have a lot growing up, his son said. His mother died when he was 2. When he was young, he never got to do stuff in the outdoors, Darry said. The exception was a trip in a Model T Ford he took with friends to hike the Grand Canyon when he was 15. But for his own sons, Darry and Doug, Bill Jackson was determined to give them the opportunity to explore the outdoors. He taught them to scuba dive at age 4 and 5. Now, we would never recommend that to somebody, Darry interjected quickly. We didnt know enough in those days to know that wasnt right. In fact, Bill Jackson likely was the first store in Florida, if not the country, to sell scuba equipment. The Jacksons happened to be in the right place at the right time, just as a boat from Italy dropped off the first batch of Cressi and Squali equipment delivered to the United States in Miami. The Jacksons started one of the first scuba classes at a St. Petersburg public pool in the 1950s. Because Darry and Doug took an interest in camping at ages 6 and 7, the store began stocking camping equipment that was determined to be the best by the familys own research. Jacksons first truly outdoors department fishing supplies had been stocked mostly because the businesss first employee had an interest in the pastime. In 1970, the Jacksons bought the land where the current store stills stands. He cleared space for a road with a machete, his wife, Harriet, collecting palmetto hearts with pruners in his wake. Together, they staked out the basic outline of the new store, which wouldnt be completed until 1976. Over the years, the humble business, which started with the World War II veteran selling rat poison, laundry bleach, office furniture and army surplus out of a home garage, grew into a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Living up to its slogan Shop for Adventure, the store stocks a full range of equipment in seven departments: scuba diving, fishing, snow skiing, camping, backpacking, hunting and canoe and kayaking. Darry said he most cherished the times when he helped his father shape a vision for the future of the business. He always used to tell me that I bought too much of some product, he said. We just had great meetings. Wed sit and talk about the future of Bill Jacksons. The store underwent a number of expansions, including a fishing shack and a porch out to Freedom Lake, built around trees that Harriet Jackson insisted must stay. Its fun to be able to go over things like that with both my parents, Darry said. He said his father instilled in him and his brother who have long since taken over the day-to-day operation of the store and its full schedule of classes a propensity for constant improvement. You always wanted something better, to make the business a better business, he said. It sure wasnt like this when he started. It changes and keeps changing. The family held a private service at the gravesite last weekend. A celebration of life will be held in the Bill Jackson classrooms Sunday, Feb. 23, where he would like to be, Darry said. The family will serve up his favorite, pepper hot dogs, and show a slide presentation of his life, starting with a picture taken in 1930 with his three friends at the Grand Canyon. Along with his sons, his daughter-in-law Sharon and two granddaughters, Meischa and Marieka, Bill Jackson is survived by his wife; the couple celebrated their 67-year anniversary in December.

Rick Scott announced Jan. 24 that local defense partners in Pinellas County were awarded $200,000 through Floridas Defense Infrastructure Grant. Pinellas County was one of eight counties to receive a Defense Infrastructure Grant, which allotted $1.6 million to eight governments statewide. Scott said, These investments are critical to the continued growth and protection of Floridas military sector. This $200,000 investment will allow Pinellas County to address encroachment and buffering, transportation and access, and security issues. Across Florida, our military servicemen and women are dedicating their lives to protect our state and nation, and we must continue to fund these vital programs and protect the over 758,000 jobs the military and defense industry supports in Florida. Floridas military and defense industry is responsible for $73.4 billion, or 9.4 percent, of Floridas gross state product, which translates to jobs for more than 758,000 Floridians. In Pinellas County, the military and defense industry is credited with $3.61 billion in economic impact and 39,702 jobs. This grant has been utilized for more than 15 years as a key tool in maintaining Floridas reputation as the most military-friendly state in the nation. Sen. Jack Latvala said, Local military installations have long been an important part of our lives in Pinellas County. The grant funds will be put to good use building the pedestrian walkway at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater. Sen. Jeff Brandes said, Gov. Scott and the Legislature know the importance of supporting our military families and I applaud them for awarding $200,000 to Pinellas County. Rep. Ed Hooper said, The impact of Floridas military bases is often overlooked as an economic driver for the state. More than $70 billion is inserted annually into our economy by more than 750,000 personnel living in our state and, as a result, nearly 40,000 jobs have been created right here in Pinellas County. These grants go a long way to help preserve this economic asset. Rep. Larry Ahern said, The grant will help our military bases with much needed infrastructure improvements. These improvements will keep both military personnel and local citizens safe and secure. I applaud Gov. Scott and our Legislature for addressing this need. Rep. Jamie Grant said, These grants go a long way in helping preserve the economic impact our military bases and families have on Florida. I sincerely thank Gov. Scott and the Legislature for continuing to support the military in Pinellas County and across the state. Rep. Kathleen Peters said, Floridas military sector continues to be among the strongest in the nation thanks to critical funding from these two programs. Gov. Scott and the Legislature continue to support these programs and, in turn, allow us to keep more than $3.6 billion in economic impact here in Pinellas County. I thank them for awarding this funding to our community. Mike Meidel, director of Pinellas County Economic Development said, Pinellas County is honored to be able, with our partners, to enhance the campus of the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater at the St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport (PIE) through this Defense Infrastructure Grant. Clearwater is the largest and busiest Air Station in the Coast Guard, and with this grant we will address safety concerns and improve pedestrian access. The USCG Air Station Clearwater, the U.S. Army Reserve and the Florida National Guard employ over 700 personnel at PIE, and generate nearly $60 million annually in direct and indirect earnings in Pinellas County. The Florida Defense Grants Programs are administered by Enterprise Florida Inc. The grants are awarded annually, on a project-prioritized basis, to communities hosting military installations.

12A Viewpoints Leader, February 6, 2014I dont remember thinking much about trash as a kid. I was fortunate to have a brother and that was his job. We didnt recycle. Not many did back then. I dont remember doing trash when in college or even after I got my first apartment. Im sure I took it somewhere and someone hauled it away. Trash became part of my life not long after I married for the first time. We rented a house on 100 acres well outside Fayetteville, Ark. It came with a fireplace, plenty of well water, a 100-year-old garden, and a view that just kept on giving. But no one picked up the trash. The county provided a dumpster across the highway from a little convenience store about 10 miles away. We drove there a couple of times a month with a pickup truck filled with trash bags. The dumpster was usually overflowing. We finally purchased a home on 10 acres a little closer to town. The well water smelled like rotten eggs. The old oak barn had no fireplaces. There was no garden and no one came for the garbage. But, it was ours and we loved it. Funny thing, the only legal place to take our trash was that same little dumpster, except now it was about 20 miles away. We began to recycle everything we could. We sold our aluminum cans at a beer distributing company. We took our paper to a place run by a nonprofit for the disabled. No one took plastic, steel cans or glass. We composted religiously, trying to turn that sticky red clay ground into soil so we could garden. We minimized our trash as much as we could. And monthly, we filled the back of the pickup and drove 20 miles to the dumpster that was usually overflowing. Twenty-two years later, I parted ways with my first husband and moved to town. For the first time in nearly 20 years, I lived in a place where someone came and hauled away the garbage. There was a nifty little wooden rack with a row of metal garbage cans. I used them every day just because I could. Only those who have lived without could understand the luxury. When I moved to Florida a couple of years later with my soon-to-be second husband, we lived in an apartment. Residents had to carry their trash to a dumpster on the other side of the complex. I took our trash to the dumpster most every day at first. Then I figured out when it would be full to overflowing and skipped those days. Apartment life really wasnt our thing, so a year later we moved to a house in Belleair. The city sent around garbage trucks twice a week. I missed the luxury of being able to go to that dumpster any time I wanted. If you got busy and forgot it was trash day, you were out of luck. Weve lived in Largo for nearly 10 years now and bought our home a little more than three years ago. Weve concentrated on reducing our trash by recycling and composting. It doesnt matter if we forget a trash day because we rarely have enough for two. But we almost always have three containers full of recycling, and theyre usually overflowing. Last week, we received our new recycling container. And its huge. I cant tell you how excited I am. The city of Largo is providing mixed recycling service. Theyll be no more sorting. For us, the service starts this week. We can start putting in glass and steel cans, and juice and milk cartons, too. You have to rinse them out just like the aluminum, but thats no big deal. We can recycle plastic containers #3 through #7. Im already visualizing the empty space where the stacks of kitty litter buckets in the garage are now. We wont have to hold the paper when it rains because the container has a lid. I do most of my work on the computer, but I still love hardcopy. Being able to get rid of most of it every week makes me giddy with joy. Some may not appreciate the luxury. But I sure do. Im anxious to see if my neighbors who dont recycle now will start. It couldnt be easier. Only those who have lived without can understand the luxury. Thank you Largo.Suzette Porter is Internet services manager for Tampa Bay Newspapers.I sympathize with all the sick passengers on the several cruise ships weve been reading about in the past few weeks. Im amazed that the cruise lines are still operating, and that vacation travelers continue to risk ghastly gastro-intestinal ailments by booking passage on any of those floating palaces. These reports take me back 65 years, to my first ocean cruise and the disaster I experienced. The vessel was far from luxurious. It was a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Bristol, based in Newport, R.I. I had boarded the ship only a few days earlier after completing radioman training at the Norfolk, Va., naval base. I was 18 and had joined the Navy the previous summer in order to escape being drafted into the Army. I feared dying in an obscure foxhole after the Soviet Union declared war on the western world. Im not sure why I thought death on the high seas was preferable to death in a foxhole. Further evidence of my mental acuity was the fact that I had suffered from motion sickness from infancy onward. Id get sick in the family car, on a playground swing, on amusement park rides, or in a canoe moving through a frog pond. In the face of all that, what did I do? I joined the Navy!A week after I boarded the Bristol, we went on training maneuvers in the north Atlantic, a region famous for its stormy waters, especially in March. I spent the ensuing fortnight in two places: clinging to my bunk with a bucket beside me, or dry-heaving over a rail outside the radio shack. Crew members passing by made sympathetic remarks such as Still feeding the fishes, Driver? I was useless to perform any duties. At any single moment I was afraid I was going to die. Two minutes later I feared that I might not. As I lay immobilized in my bunk, shipmates kept playing a rhythm-and-blues song called I Want a Bow-Legged Woman, performed by Bull Moose Jackson. The lyrics are branded into my soul.When the Bristol returned to Newport, I was prepared to be shot, given a medical discharge or transferred to an Army base in the Sahara desert. Instead, the Navy sent me to a nut-house. The official title was Ward L (the psychiatric unit) of the Chelsea Naval Hospital, just outside downtown Boston. The Navy figured that motion sickness was a form of mental illness. For two weeks my companions were sailors incapacitated by a variety of mental/emotional ailments. One was a convicted murderer, transferred from a Navy prison to be treated for epilepsy. Another was a man so homesick he had attempted suicide. A third was a transvestite deserter who was found performing in a Boston gay bar. Then there was a chief petty officer who had suffered for years from chronic unexplained dysentery. Obviously, my motion sickness was a ready-made affliction to help me fit easily into this bizarre gallery. My treatment consisted of several steps. One was dime-store psychoanalysis. Seaman Driver, did your parents beat you? Did you ever get a girl pregnant? Do you get a thrill from seeing a chicken? When those incisive queries failed to identify any Freudian traumas, the Navy therapists attached a dozen or so electrodes to my skull and measured the radioactive beeps and blurps that could be detected. Once it was clear that I wasnt a psychopath I was assigned critical duties such as sweeping and swabbing the hospitals floors. And so it went, until the day a doctor summoned me to hear the verdict that would alter the course of my life. Seaman Driver, our conclusion is this: we feel you are an average, not-especially-bright young man whose perennial vomiting while traveling on erratically-moving objects is genuine, i.e., youre not faking it in the hope of being assigned to shore duty. We have no idea what causes your problem. So were sending you back to your ship, with this bottle of pills. The bottle contained a newly-developed drug called Dramamine. It was a miracle. Ive lived with it ever since. I will not board an aircraft or an ocean-going vessel without first popping a Dramamine tablet. Its only unwelcome side effect is drowsiness, which has occasionally lowered the trajectory of my otherwise meteoric career. But thats another column, perhaps. Unfortunately, from what I read, the recent cruise ship plagues cannot be prevented or easily cured by taking a pill. The only apparent solution is for the traveling public to steer clear of ocean voyages. Im all for that. One of the joys of my life is the immense satisfaction of staying home with the TV and watching Rick Steves schlepping all over Europe.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

I was a member of this group for many years, before realizing that the expenses of belonging to the clown alley were becoming too much. Now, let me give a bit of background as to why. Sure there were dues to belong to the club, but that was only a very small portion of the costs involved. Keep in mind that this is a group who volunteers its services to the community of Largo, and yes, at the time, in association with the City of Largo. Besides dues, the City of Largo required that everyone have a recreation card. Thats a bit of money, especially when our whole family was involved And then each person had to pay for the use of the Citys Community Center room for the one hour of use each month per person. And this is all for a group who volunteers for the city at events the city requests clowns for. Remember, this is a clown group who volunteers their time and materials, such as balloons, face paints etc. If you are unaware, these items can be quite expensive. And remember volunteering. Florida Clown Day has always been one of my favorite times spent with the children of Largo and surrounding areas. I have enjoyed taking my little clown car, and my three children and we have enjoyed clowning with the kids. This all makes me contemplate how the city of Largo must not realize the value of these clowns and their services. I also do paid clowning. The City obviously either has no idea the value of these clowns or just doesnt care. To have over one hundred clowns available to the community at Florida Clown Day is an event that is hard to beat. It is not the fault of a clown alley who volunteers their time that the city is so irresponsible with city money that they need to charge volunteers to volunteer for the benefit of the City. It just frustrates me that the city of Largo is trying to spin this as if Uptown Clowns has been getting some kind of sweetheart deal. Just saying. Dean Adams Largo2014 perspective on Roe versus WadeEditor: In 1973, the same year Roe versus Wades Abortion Act was passed, co-workers disclosed to me that they knew of a single woman who had already had one abortion, and was in the process of scheduling a second. When I asked them why, they indicated that they believed the expectant mother was single, had no supporting family, church, job or benefits, and was not of sound mind since having taken the life of her first and only child at age 18. In 1949, a single mother with no job, three young mouths to feed and having recently experienced her husbands death, in the midst of severe loneliness and grief, becomes pregnant. Worse yet, she is left in a foreign city to fend for herself and her children. Somehow, she manages to struggle through the experience, remarries a former high-school sweetheart in 1951, and moves back into her small hometown to raise her family. While these two stories share very similar circumstances at the start, their outcomes at the finish line are extremely different. On Feb. 8, the 1949 single mother will turn 92. She is an amazing individual in stature, courage, grace and dignity, with a healthy respect for life and for countless others. During the last 64 years, I have come to know her from a much deeper and broader perspective as to her capabilities, commitment and maternal love. There is nothing she failed to sacrifice for any of the family members throughout their adolescence and well into their adulthood with their respective families, a beacon or measure for others to follow. Isnt it ironic then, that after all of this, she finds herself once again in the same dilemma for she must now face the very same issues and questions of the unborn or soon to be aborted child. When she cant speak, eat or stand-up for herself and life is coming to an end or her life-sustaining functions begin to fail as they will for all of us who have been given the opportunity to travel lifes journey and all of the wonderful and unknown experiences it has to offer, who then will be best able to speak, care and take action on her behalf if not for the unborn child. Lorian J. Tripp Largo A local hero Editor: Step out your door and begin walking and you will likely not go very far before you pass one of the many heroes living in this area who have yet to be recognized and rightfully praised. Just look a bit closer, for example, at the following life of a local man who fits this category all too well, and then judge for yourself if you would also call him a hero. From his earliest days, he had no doubt that music would be a necessary part of his life. Back in the 1940s and 1950s, as he helped to build army tanks at Baldwin Locomotive Works, he was working along with, and playing music for, Mario Lanza, who was still studying opera at that time. He went on to play guitar in the Westinghouse band, and then bass in a variety of other bands, with noted stars like Billy Holiday, Cab Calloway, and Dave Brubeck. But all of those impressive times did not, of course, make him a hero. That would come later. Much later. After working at Westinghouse, building generators for battleships, he then moved on, and, for the next 36 years, he owned and ran a car lot until he finally retired. From that point on, he had to cope with the next big challenge in his life, his advancing age. All the way up through his 70s and 80s, he held his own quite well. But when he reached the age of 90, things began to fall apart. That job at Westinghouse, building generators, included a good amount of asbestos dust filling the air, at a time when that threat to health attracted little attention, fluid began to appear in his lungs. And then he actually began to fall. During the next few years, he fell eight times, breaking his ribs and both shoulder blades. Aspirin was prescribed for the pain, and that gave him bleeding ulcers. On one of his falls, he tore off most of the skin from his left elbow down to his wrist, leaving a large area of the flesh beneath exposed. His skin by then had dried out, and it became so fragile that simply touching it too hard would cause a pool of blood to appear beneath it. Now comes the amazing part. His name is Vito Prudente, a little guy, 137 pounds, and, up to this very moment, after all that life has inflicted upon him, he not only keeps going day to day, but he does so always with a cheerful word and a smile for everyone he meets. He keeps moving among us, with a cane and a shuffle, and with that sly little pixie look of his, so full of joy at simply still being alive that he brightens every room he enters. Vito is one of the bravest individuals I have ever known. At age 94 now, and still going strong, he represents, by any definition, that category of a true hero who persists, with all the odds against him, to conquer each day with his own joy, and to readily share that joy with others.

The presentation will be suitable for teenagers and families of all faiths. In 1938, Germany invaded Austria, causing many Jewish families to flee Austria to avoid persecution. Among the emigrants was 8-year-old Eva Geiringer, who with her mother, brother, and father moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors was a German Jewish girl of the same age. Her name was Anne Frank. The two girls became friends and playmates. They passed the time by skipping, playing hopscotch and marbles, and drinking lemonade that Annes mother prepared. Ultimately, both girls and their families were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. She recalls the day Anne Franks father showed her a small package containing his daughters diary, and his path in bringing himself back to life by publishing the diary around the world. Eva is a courageous individual who works tirelessly to end the violence and bigotry that continues to plague our world, said Rabbi Alter Korf, of the Chabad Jewish Center of St. Petersburg, the organization sponsoring the event. We are honored and excited to play host to this great person. Schloss has never visited the Tampa Bay area, and it is likely she will not return. Organizers say they are expecting a large turnout from across the spectrum of the greater community. Worship calendar

Outdoors 15A Leader, February 6, 2014 Obituaries FLORENCE TAYLOR May 20, 1914 January 24, 2014 Her family is sorry to announce that after a marvelous life of almost 100 years, Florence Ida Parker Taylor (nee Vint) has passed away in Toronto. She was predeceased by her husband, Hugh B. Parker (1963); second husband, Leon A. Taylor (2004); and stepson, David Taylor (1990). She has left wonderful memories for her children and their spouses: Carol Shaw (Wayne), Hugh C. Parker, (Judy), and Joy Parker Blackwood (Billy Ray), and for her stepchildren, Peter Taylor, Patricia Taylor and Glen Taylor (Joanna). Florence enjoyed and was loved by her grandchildren, Ross Galloway (Liz Marshall), Lynn Galloway (Nicholas Goboly), Christine Parker (Todd Joyes), Karen Craig (Ryan), and Victoria and Leilani Taylor, as well as great grandchildren, Brody Galloway and Quinn and Abigail Joyes. She will be missed by her sister, Lois Parker; sister-in-law, Dora Davenport and niece, Joan Munoz, as well as by Murray Galloway, Jill Burns, and countless friends in Florida, Montreal, Ontario and elsewhere. Florence loved life. Born in Toronto, she attended Balmy Beach and Williamson Road Public Schools, Moulton Ladies College, and Shaws Business School. She was a talented musician with dreams of a concert pianist career; a dream cut short by the depression of the 1930s. She loved participating in sports of every kind, and continued to swim lengths of the pool almost daily at her home in Florida and at Amica at Bayview, until well into her nineties. Florence loved travelling and saw much of the world. Her main passion was her love of, and devotion to, Christian Science. She was a Christian Science Practitioner, and was active in every avenue of her church. Having lived for 36 years in Florida after her husband retired, it was quite a decision to return to Toronto at age 92 to be closer to her family. But she easily made friends at Amica and participated in everything from bridge games and movie nights to the glee club and the Sudoku group. She was one of the last members of the Monitor Club of Toronto. Thanks to Ruth, Beverly, Novlette and Solange for their loving support and care, as well as to the staff at Amica. The love of each of us goes with you on your on-going journey, Mom! An afternoon to remember Florence Taylor will be held at a later date. In lieu of owers, a contribution to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church 1955 S.

The pipe was fixed by 3 a.m. Sunday. Tom Iovino with county Communications said Saturday afternoon that the problem had stopped the water flow entirely to Fort De Soto Park. Water is not getting to the park at all, Iovino said. We thought it best to close it. All park restrooms, water fountains and campground showers were inoperative. Burrell said it was impossible to estimate revenue lost due to the three-day closure. Fort De Soto Park welcomes approximately 2.7 million visitors each year. Using numbers from 2011 and 2012, an average of about $2,000 a day was collected in parking fees on the first weekend of February. An average of 6,595 people visited the park on those days in 2011, 2012 and 2013. All 216 campsites were occupied when officials decided to close the park due to lack of water, Burrell said. Staff worked with the campers already at the park, allowing them to stay. Drinking water was provided as needed. By Sunday, 160 campsites were still occupied and 163 were in use on Monday. It is not known whether the campers left due to the water problem or if they had only planned to stay one night, Burrell said. The county put up a variable message sign on Madonna Boulevard, which is located before the park entrance, to notify park visitors. However, some people were still determined to gain entrance to the park, especially those who had driven from out of the area. Burrell said park rangers used their own discretion to let some in, including boaters. All were cautioned not to drink the water. She said all water fountains had been covered to deter their use. They tried to be as flexible as they could, she said. A boil water order remained in effect through Monday evening as officials waited for results of tests. Meanwhile, all tap water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes had to be brought to a rolling boil for one to three minutes, or residents could use bottled water as an alternative. Burrell explained that the EPA required that results of water tests taken on two consecutive days come back clean before the boil order could be lifted. Anytime water pressure drops below a certain level, the possibility exists for contamination. Microbes, if present in the water, can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly and people with severely compromised immune systems. People with specific health concerns should consult a doctor. Iovino said Monday evening that the first test had come back clear. Around 9 p.m., he sent out a press release announcing that the second test also had passed muster. The boil water notice was lifted. Fort De Soto Park reopened Tuesday morning. Pinellas Countys Department of Environment and Infrastructure thanks all of our customers for their cooperation during this event, the press release said. For more information, call 464-4000. WATER, from page 1ADolphin female wanted to get away but escape was futileMales fight over females, right? This is hard to confirm at sea with dolphins. It can be hard to verify that dolphins are fighting rather than engaging in other lively but non-hostile activities. Fighting makes a lot of splashing that obscures opponent identities. But there are clear moments when you can identify males fighting over a female. If you take her perspective, you see that her options are limited. A shy female we call WR was at the center of huge skirmishes in 2013, two in summer and two around Christmas. I hope she had a break in between. The biggest fight was on July 4. The elements set the stage. Stormy eastern skies were sapphire blue. The setting sun shown like a spotlight on the green and beige islands of Johns Pass, crowded with people, ice chests and volleyball nets instead of resting birds. The dolphin fight started abruptly. It would include a dozen bulls before it was over but it was mainly six, all healthy in body and appetite. Three started throwing serious punches right away. That is, they thrashed each other with their powerful peduncles until the scene resembled a cartwheel tournament. WR was generally embroiled in a mating mob of three or four writhing bulls. Each bull exerted great effort to mate but prevent others from mating by thrusting himself between any dolphins that drew their bodies together, sometimes with audible thuds. Nearby, milling bulls snorted their discontent. To avoid the males, WR floated at the surface on her back as long as she could, her white belly luminous against dispassionate sapphire skies. Inevitably, a bulky bull slammed down on her and she vanished in the lather of struggle. Again and again, males appeared and dove on her, shoving each other aside and skidding back into the fray. Their battle barks and growls attracted more males until there were scuffles all around. The oceans commotion drew the people from their ice chests to stand in ankle-deep water and watch until the skies were aflame with fireworks. The summer fighting over WR went for three weeks until she left the study area. Then, in that enchanting trend among our local dolphins, she returned in the fall as her mother J gave birth to this years calf. She was still with Scarface and his buddy Gazio. They must have won the bull battles over her. Around Christmas, they encountered local rivals determined to test their mettle. Capt. John Heidemann turned our boat into a northern cove in our study area just as a dolphin fight ended. We caught the last two tail whips. As we headed over, local boys Scrapefin and Ski headed out, slowly swimming 5 feet apart in the stately unison of dolphins on display. It had been quite a fight, indicated by the large mud plumes that dotted the area, which fighting dolphins usually create, and the many people on their balconies, now glaring as if the dolphin fight stopped because of us. Meanwhile, the vanquished had escaped underwater. Outside the cove, WR was alternately accompanied by pairs of bulls, the larger bulls Scrapefin and Ski harrying the younger bull pair Scarface and Gazio. The younger bulls bond is fairly new but showed one characteristic of bonded bulls: One bull tends to be bolder. Today Scarface was bolder, shoving Scrapefin back while Gazio swam the sidelines. It was hard to tell WRs preferences. She acted like a compliant dance partner traded between partners. Then we saw that she wanted to get away but escape was futile. Three times, she rocketed out of the jostling bullpen at her greatest speed, racing a hundred yards underwater and then skimming over it to catch her breath and continue her escape. She has the unique physical advantage of being able to empty and refill her lungs in a fraction of a second. But like you, a dolphin can only give it her all as long as she can and then must slow to catch her breath. This gives the other dolphins time to catch up. Time and again, we watched her sprint away vigPhoto by ANN WEAVERDolphins sometimes leave the water to avoid the bites or blows of other dolphins, as skirmishing bottlenose dolphins demonstrate during a winter clash. orously and her companions follow unswervingly. Finally, she, Scarface and Gazio ducked down a convenient canal. Competitors Scrapefin and Ski seemed to lose interest. They continued past the panting escapee to toy with some teens down the way. But they would be back. The next week was an instant replay. Again, we got to the same cove just in time to see distance dolphins give the final tail whips amid telltale mud plumes indicating a serious skirmish. This time, we saw one of the dolphins shoot out of the group, rocket under our boat and blast another hundred yards out of the cove. There was no telling who it was. But as its followers charged past and we identified Scrapefin, Ski, Scarface and Gazio, we knew the fleeing dolphin was little lady WR. Outside, the two sets of bulls caught up and alternately accompanied WR. When temporarily ousted, each pair would arch over the surface in patent display, once even grunting (which is rare). They circled like whooping Indians until conflict resumed. They fell upon one another in writhing mating mobs, punctuated by cartwheel contests of traded tail-whips and desperately swimming between any two dolphins that drew their bodies together. Eventually, a large yacht came by and the competitors surfed away. We have not seen WR or her companions since. Her tormentors Scrapefin and Ski remain here. For her sake, I hope they do.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver A warming trend has made a big difference in the fishing in northern Pinellas. Afternoon high tides this past week helped to usher in some warmer water that has spurred on a sunset bite that rivaled those in years past. Both redfish and gator trout have both been waiting for it to warm up a bit for an opportunity to feed. Targeting mullet schools at the later part of the incoming tide all the way through the heart of the outgoing tide this week produced good catches. Working soft plastic jerk baits through the thickest part of the mullet schools as they made their way off the flats on the late evening outgoing tide has been the pattern. If youre an artificial lure purist, this is your time of year. Its simple; the fish are scattered and hungry. Drifting through schools of post-spawn mullet while fan casting weedless rigged jerk baits gives you the best chance possible at finding aggressively feeding fish. Watching the tides, these windows of spectacular fishing will be based on good timing more than anything. Afternoon high tides in between fronts are the best fishing periods. Look for the first few days of the upcoming full moon to set the stage. These good tides usually stretch from three days prior to the moon and peak three days after the moon. Target no-motor zone flats and many of the spoil islands that dot the Intracoastal Waterway. Schools of mullet are a bit hard to come by out there right now but are definitely the key. The reds and trout will shadow these mullet schools waiting for food to be disrupted by their presence. Dark colored soft plastics mimic shrimp and crabs perfectly and up current casts will fool quality fish more often than others. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

This year one woman who has been participating for years told me she finally registered before the early deadline; she signed up early to get the discount. Although serious runners from all over participate in the race, there is more to the event than that. In addition to the 5k run, there is also a 1-mile fun run and nobody necessarily needs to run, participants can walk the course as well. As long as they are registered and are paid up they qualify for that after-party, which some have said is the only reason they show up. The race is held on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. Participants can register online at imathlete.com and look for Belleair Sunset, or in person at the Dimmitt Community Center. Online registration closes on Feb. 12, but in-person registration continues right through the day of the event. The discount date is passed so the registration cost is $30 for adults and $20 for children from 5 to 15. For that registrants get a t-shirt, awards for the top finishers and the post-race party. People need to go because it really is fun, said Felten. It is really the deal of the century. By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR For the past several years the number of participants in the Belleair Sunset 5k Race this year held Saturday, Feb. 15 has grown. Four years ago, 400 runners registered for the run. The following year it grew to 750 and last year the total was 900. This year, organizers expect at least 1,000 runners, making it the largest ever. Way back when, the first race attracted only 48 runners, said Danielle Felten, Belleairs special events coordinator. Now were expecting over 1,000 because more and more people are talking about it. Felten says the parade route may have something to do with its growing popularity. The route goes through down and along Bayview and the bluffs and it gives everyone a great view of the beautiful scenery, she said. Even the walkers like it, weve gotten rave reviews. The runners just have a good time on that route. One of the regular participants in the race agrees with that assessment. Jim White has been running in the race for years. I enjoy it, it goes past the houses and the bluffs, it is a nice run, he said. The athletic websites all bill it as a picturesque run so it has some attraction because of that. White says he is not surprised that the event is growing every year. It is well advertised and is a nice town event, he said. Im hoping to do real well this year but I have some training to do. Ive been sick and had a twisted ankle but Im back at it now. Another reason why the race is popular according to White is the after-party. Felten acknowledges that it is something that attracts the runners. I can only say the party is the best time ever, she said. Every registered runner gets to attend the party and besides entertainment there is free food and drink for everybody, all you can eat. Belleair resident Amy Maguire, her husband Sean and daughters Megan, 12 and Molly, 10 are regulars in the race. No one is more enthusiastic about the event than Maguire. There are so many people from all over who come to the race and they make it exciting, she said. Last year I talked to people from St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs and they told me how much they love to come to Belleair for the race. Maguire says she and her family have been participating in the race almost since the beginning. You establish milestones when you do something like this, she said. When my youngest was just 7 she actually ran the entire race. It was a community event and she was with all her friends and they ran the race. They never would have dreamed they could run that far. Maguire says she and her family intend on participating in the race for years to come. The race was started 12 years ago as a 10k run and was held as a Photo by BRIAN GOFFRunners are set to go at last years Belleair Sunset 5K race. More are expected this year.

It would be difficult to overstate Crays impact on rock, rhythm and blues since the release of his 1980 album debut Whos Been Talkin. Over the course of his career, Cray has invited listeners along on his epic musical journey breaking through the pop ceiling with his gate crashing/blues-edged trademark sound, distinct playing style and daring innovations. Vintage Trouble will bring their stage stealing rock, soul and blues infused performance to the festival. Boasting four guys with a passion for music and a ton of soul, Vintage Trouble has won over entire continents, bringing an unforgettable passion to the stage and capturing the hearts of thousands. In between touring the world with Bon Jovi, Lenny Kravitz, Brian May of Queen, The Cranberries and Van Hunt, Vintage Trouble has headlined smaller venues creating a raucous energy that captivates the audience and turns clubs and pubs into wild late night parties. The band released its debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, in 2011. Savoy Brown was formed in London in 1965 by guitarist Kim Simmonds. Originally a UK version of a Chicago blues band, the group developed into a classic and highly original rock band but always managed to keep its blues roots intact. The bands 1967 debut, Shakedown, helped launch the British blues boom. Savoy Brown continued to find commercial success as a blues band in the 1970s with albums such as Hellbound Train. The band will release a new album, Goin to the Delta, in February. More blues on the billWidely regarded as one of worlds very best female guitar-players, Ana Popovics career has been meteoric, and shows no signs of slowing down. The Serbian-born musician has become one of the most lauded blues guitarists on the circuit. Popovic moved to Memphis to capture the citys greasy Stax sound, record at Ardent Studios, and play with its finest musicians. Albert King and WAR equally inspire her 2013 LP Can You Stand The Heat. The most impressive aspect of her music is her diversity of techniques and styles. Her blend of smoking electric funk slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals, tight blues groove, soulful feminine vocals and her incredible stage presence makes her an irresistible force in the music world.

Born in 1991 in St. Louis, Mo., Marquise Knox hails from a musical family deeply entrenched in the blues. He learned how to play guitar from his grandmother Lillie whose family members were sharecroppers and whose great, great grandparents were slaves. He also played with his Uncle Clifford, who was a major influence in Knoxs life. For Knox, blues is his heritage and a way of life. He spent his early teenage years in St. Louis mentoring under the late great blues legend, N.E.A. Heritage Fellowship recipient and Grammy Award winner Henry James Townsend. Knoxs talents have earned him performing rights with some of Americas most notable blues performers such as blues legend and Grammy Award winners B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins and David Honeyboy Edwards. He has also performed at dozens of festivals, and has toured Germany and played the Baden Blues Festival in Switzerland. came to national prominence after relocating to New Orleans in 1999. His recording career began in 1996 as a local/regional New Orleans-based artist. Beginning in 2006, when Alligator Records picked him up, he began touring nationally and internationally. He recorded three albums for Alligator and has since issued several CDs on smaller indie labels. Like the legendary female singers she most admires Etta James, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin Lauren Mitchell gives audiences everything she has and then some. From her roots singing in the churches of Ohio, to the southern blues and rock scene throughout Florida, Mitchell has honed her craft by singing her heart out in hundreds of honkytonks and blues halls along the way. Her distinctive brand of fullthrottle, all-or-nothing stage performances leave audiences begging for more. With a smoking-backing band, Mitchell is based in central Florida and plays on the big stages throughout the South, the Midwest, and the East Coast. Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Rufs 2011 release, Girls with Guitars. Fueled by the trios Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the United States, and the international buzz it created in the blues world, Fish recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like Down In The Swamp with the mellow small-hours jazz of Feelin Alright, while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut in 2012. Fish followed up Runaway last September, unleashing her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on the new album Black Wind Howlin. Rather than trying to duplicate what she accomplished on her first success, Fish re-defines her sound throughout the tracks on Black Wind HowlBLUES, from page 3B OPENING, from page 1BRated: PG-13 Based on author Richelle Meads worldwide bestselling series, Vampire Academy tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry), two 17-year-old girls who attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi, mortal, peaceful vampires, and Dhampirs, halfvampire/half-human guardians.

PETERSBURG The 20-time Grammy award winner Pat Metheny will bring his Unity Group to the Tampa Bay area for a one-night special performance set for Sunday, Feb. 9, 7 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S. Tickets start at $45. Call 893-7832 or visit www.themahaffey.com. Methenys body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras and ballet pieces with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical. Pat Metheny, Ben Williams, Chris Potter, Giulio Carmassi and Antonio Sanchez are the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Pat Metheny Unity Group is an extension of Methenys Unity Band project. In 2012, he partnered with Sanchez (drums), Williams (bass) and Potter (saxophone) as a quartet. The group toured Europe and the United States. In 2013, Metheny sought to capitalize on the bands success and officially announced the formal formation of the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Unity Band project was life-changing for me said guitarist Pat Metheny in a press release Ted Kurland Associates. I have led many groups of talented musicians, but what went down with that band on a night-after-night basis was inspiring in a way that was really unlike anything else. When we did our last gig, as we walked off the stage all I could think about was that I didnt want it to end, and I knew it was the same for Chris, Antonio and Ben, too. Metheny also announced an anticipated album and world tour. For the past few months, I have been trying to find a way to extend our time together, Metheny said. At the same time, I have been feeling the pull to do the kind of lush and harmonically dense music with lots more written material that has always been a big part of my larger groups and projects. One night I woke up with the tantalizing idea of really taking Unity concept all the way and forming a platform for the first time that could cover the entire spectrum of things that I have done as a bandleader over the years under one roof. With this lineup, everything from Bright Size Life to Secret Story to all of my Group stuff to Song X could be within range and more. With the new incarnation of the project, a new face joined the lineup. An incredible musician appeared on my radar thanks to a recommendation from my friend, bassist Will Lee, Metheny said. His name is Giulio Carmassi. He comes from Italy and I guess you could say that he is a multi-instrumentalist, but that barely scratches the surface of what he does. Carmassi is a piano and keyboard player, and also plays woodwinds and brass, guitars, bass, drums and, according to Metheny, he sings like an angel. He told me he was inspired by seeing one of my bands perform in Italy when he was young and often thought about having the multi-instrumentalist seat on one of my projects, Metheny said. With Guilio added to the core just about anything will be possible. The Pat Metheny Unity Group released the new album Kin Feb. 4.Pat MethenyAccording to the biography provided by Ted Kurland Associates, Metheny was born in Lees Summit, Mo., in 1954, into a musical family. He began playing trumpet at age 8, and, at age 12, he switched to guitar. By his mid-teens, Metheny was playing regularly with some of the best jazz musicians in Kansas City and, in return, earning priceless on-the-bandstand experience. Methenys introduction to the international jazz scene came in 1974. Over the course of his three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, Metheny displayed his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility. His debut album soon followed: Bright Size Life (1975) helped re-imagine the traditional jazz guitar sound for a new generation of players. Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument. Over the years, Metheny has won countless polls as Best Jazz Guitarist and plenty of awards, including three gold records for Still Life (Talking), Letter from Home and Secret Story. He has also won 18 Grammy Awards spread out over a variety of different categories including Best Rock Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Recording, Best Jazz Instrumental Solo, Best Instrumental Composition. The Pat Metheny Group won an unprecedented seven consecutive Grammies for seven consecutive albums. Metheny has spent most of his life on tour, averaging between 120 and 240 shows a year since 1974.

The three candidates are running for a chance to serve Pinellas County in the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election March 11. The winner will fill the position left vacant when longtime Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Young served District 13 in congress for more than 40 years. The debate, a special edition of Political Connections, broadcast on Bay News 9, was the result of a partnership between SPC, Bay News 9 and the Tampa Bay Times. The event was sponsored by AARP. The debate was moderated by the Times political editor Adam C. Smith, Times assistant managing editor Amy Hollyfield and Bay News 9 senior anchor Al Ruechel. Write-in candidate Michael Levinson did not attend. The nights event was fast-paced with a variety of topics covered in what was described as lightning rounds, where single word answers were preferred. Other questions allowed candidates 30 to 60 seconds to make their case. An opening statement started things out. Jolly told viewers that he had spent 20 years working at the side of the late Rep. Young. He said he wants to continue Youngs work to empower families to make their own decisions. He favors less taxes and less regulation. He stressed that he is a Pinellas County native. He was born in Dunedin and now lives in Indian Shores. Overby said when he began to campaign for a seat in Congress a year ago, he did so to bring people who are disenfranchised with the process back into the fold. HeLadies gather at Highland for a weekend of scrapbooking By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Scrapbooking is a serious pastime. Just ask any of the ladies who set up stacks of colored pages; plastic boxes of glue, pens and markers; miniature shapes bought at craft stores and several types of cutting tools for an entire weekend of scrapbooking at Highland Recreation Complex. Everything has to be readily available, explained Sherri Snyder, a particularly organized scrapbooker who sits beside a spinning rack of clear hanging folders displayed on top of a cart of colored drawers. Crop Till You Drop, held Jan. 31 to Feb. 2, took up a whole gymnasium at the recreation complex. The event gives women a chance to step away from their busy schedules, spread out materials for several days and devote their focus on a fun activity with friends. A lot of women dont do this at home, with kids and work, said Amy Cornelius of Spring Hill, a scrapbooking vendor and participant at the event. So they come however many times a year and they dont have the phone bugging them, husbands are leaving them alone. Youre just here. Scrapbooking events, called crops, are held all over the state. Snyder, who hails from Melbourne, attends events about two weekends a month as a vendor and participant. Its the people you meet, and the fun and the laughter and the relationships thats what is important to me personally, she said. After the success of Largos first two annual Crop Till You Drop events, held in the fall, the city decided to add a second crop to the yearly calendar, said Krista Pincince, program manager for Highland. Fifty-one people were registered for the weekend crop. The event has grown continuously, she said. The tradition started as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Parks, Arts and Recreation department. The city held a 50-hour crop, but organizers quickly discovered that even diehard scrapbook fans dont literally stay overnight, Pincince said. Now the event closes between midnight and 8 a.m. The Highland staff served six meals between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening when the event concluded.

But that wasnt the case the first weekend of February. Pinellas County officials closed the park Saturday morning, and it remained closed Sunday and Monday. Just after midnight Saturday, a loss of water pressure was recorded on one of Utilities monitoring devices. Calls from the public began coming in about the same time, according to Mary Burrell, with county Communications. A mandatory boil water order was issued, per EPA rules, for residents of southern Tierra Verde south of Madonna Boulevard and all residents living along the Pinellas Bayway, including those living off Sands Point Drive. Burrell said approximately 1,000 customers were affected. Crews responded to the problem and finally found a Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSPinellas County workers search for the source of a water supply problem Saturday afternoon that caused the closure of Fort De Soto Park and a mandatory boil water order for some residents in Tierra Verde.

Glynis Rutter, who recently participated in the program, was very impressed with the simplicity of the entire process, according to a city press release. I was amazed at just how easy it was, she said. Glynis helped her 91-year-old mother, Lilian, work with the citys community development department to complete several badly needed improvements, including new windows and replacing a damaged roof that has needed regular patching and repairs in the last few years. Glynis learned about the Housing Rehabilitation Program through some neighbors. She visited Largo.com, downloaded and submitted an application and soon was speaking with a representative from the community development department. Somebody explained the process to us every step of the way. It wasnt the least bit intimidating, she said. The Housing Rehabilitation Program offers loans with interest rates up to 2 percent to Largo residents who meet certain income eligibility requirements.

4A Leader, February 6, 2014said if elected, he would have a chance to bring the peoples concerns to a larger stage. He said he agreed with some of the priorities of his opponents, but there were grave differences between the three. Sink said she was sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. She wants to end partisanship to get things done. She said she is an experienced businesswoman who served as the states chief financial officer and worked together to bring Democrats and Republicans together. She wants to fight to protect jobs, Social Security, veterans benefits and bring the voice of the people in Pinellas County to Washington.Lightning round questionsShould Florida accept federal money to expand Medicaid? Overby said yes; Sink said no. Jolly said not unless there is a guarantee the money cant be taken away. Should the federal government be required to have a balanced budget? Overby and Jolly said yes; Sink said no. Should the state allow medical marijuana? Jolly and Overby said no; Sink said yes, but added she did not support any program that would allow pot shops.Question of residencySink was asked about accusations of being a carpetbagger. Prior to Youngs death, she was a longtime resident of Hillsborough County. She replied that when she considered running for District 13 seat, she asked herself, Do I share the values of the people of this district? My political values are very well aligned with Pinellas County, she said, adding that she had worked in Pinellas County for 25 years in the business community and her charitable work. Jolly said that Rep. Young had taught every school group that visited his office that the House of Representatives was the peoples house, something he would continue to respect if elected. Alex wants to change Washington, I believe representation should be local, she said. Overby said he didnt think residency was a determining factor. A lot of Pinellas County people are interested in the concept, he said. He said he had spent a great deal of time working in the trenches, spending time in the community. When Sink was asked if she would stay in Pinellas if she lost the election, she said, Im not losing.ObamacareA member of the audience asked the candidates if they supported a repeal of Obamacare. Jolly said yes. He said Obamacare was founded on a premise that now is being called the lie of the year. He said it should be repealed and alternatives offered in its place. He said Obamacare was hurting Pinellas County residents and businesses. Overby said he was in favor of getting the cost of health care down. Some parts of Obamacare are good, he said. But there needs to be less focus on insurance and more on reduced costs. Sink said she believes that Americans have the right to health insurance and secondly affordable health care. Obamacare cant be repealed because we cant go back to where we were, she said. She said she knew people who were thrilled with Obamacare. She asked if it were right to go back to a time when people could be refused insurance due to pre-existing medical conditions or when seniors had more problems with access to health care. Jolly said the problems Sink mentioned could be fixed. I believe in less government, not more, he said. Overby said many of the arguments ongoing over healthcare and insurance dated back to the Clinton administration. He suggested getting insurance out of the way so work could be done to fix affordability.Flood insurance reformOverby said he supported the plan recently passed by the Senate to delay insurance rate hikes for four years to allow time to work on real solutions. He supports expanding the public option and more involvement by private insurers. Sink said she had reached out to insurance companies and agents as well as local Realtors. She said she offered four or five suggestions on her website. She favors looking for solutions now and exploring what can be done with the private sector instead of kicking the can down the road for four years. Jolly said Biggert-Waters flood reform is a bad law today and it will be a bad law in four years. He favors use of private insurance and diversifying the risk pool. The answer is not in Washington. The answer is in the private sector. It is in Tallahassee, he said. Sink reminded Jolly that the National Flood Insurance Program was started due to a lack of private insurers.Immigration reformSink and Overby said they support immigration reform and a path to citizenship as proposed by a bipartisan Senate plan. Overby said he does not support parts of the plan that are too expensive. Jolly does not support a path to citizenship. He said people who have broken the law should not be rewarded and suggested that something needed to be done about businesses that employ illegal workers. We cant insult those who have done it (became a citizen) legally, he said.Social SecurityOn the question of Social Security and Medicare benefits, Jolly admits something needs to be done; however, he does not support cutting benefits to those who are vested in the program. He defines vested as having worked for 40 quarters, or 10 years. He does not advocate long-term entitlement for those not now in the system. Overby did not favor Jollys approach. As a 27year-old, he asked who would end up paying. He said the plan would leave him without benefits. Jolly is 41 and Sink is 65. Overby favors other alternatives such as a voluntary program to drop out of the system as a charitable donation. He does not favor forcing people out. I will fight to support Medicare and Social Security, Sink said. She said she went on the program this year after paying in for 40 years. She said she didnt want to worry that her 25-year-old daughter would not have access to health care when she is 65.Student financial aidOne SPC student asked the candidates about what could be done to make education and financial aid more affordable. Overby said costs of education had gone up dramatically due in part to the subsidies. He said federal government should be less involved to allow colleges to become more competitive. Sink said it was important for government to continue to invest in the future and ensure students have access to student aid. Jollys plan ties the cost of education to the success of the school. Theyre offering a product to the students, he said.Other topicsJolly said he is OK with the states amendment on gay marriage because it is a matter between the partners and their God. Overby said he supports the ban. Sink said she supports gay marriage. Overby supports the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Sink also is in support, but added more needed to be done to ensure adequate background checks. Jolly supports doing whatever must be done to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Sink supports raising the minimum wage. Overby is opposed. Jolly supports finding a suitable wage rate and then tying future raises to the cost index. On a local issue, Jolly and Overby oppose light rail in Pinellas County. Sink is in favor. The moderators brought up the subject of Jollys lobbyist activities against Social Security and for offshore drilling, which he said were not true. He said he worked to negotiate a ban against offshore drilling. He said he worked on a measure that would guarantee Social Security for everyone. The candidates were asked if there were things in which they disagreed with their party. Sink said she disagreed with Obamas plan to implement chain CPI, which would lower benefit amounts. Jolly said he disagrees with his partys handling of flood insurance reform and changes to Social Security. Overby said the Libertarian Party was often bullheaded and overzealous. He said he was trying to find solutions for all, not just one part of the population. Jolly and Overby oppose Common Core standards for education. Jolly believes education should be a decision made in the classrooms. Overby believes the closer education is to families the better. Sink believes standards are important to measure students who will be competing on a national and worldwide setting. The candidates were asked one question on foreign policy: Would they support more aggressive military action in Syria? Sink said no. I dont believe in putting more boots on the ground in a country where we dont understand the dynamics, she said. Jolly said yes. (Bashar) Assad used chemical weapons to kill people and children, he said. We should have intervened right away. Overby said no. He said he had talked to Syrians right after the incident. Syrians didnt want us interfering, he said. The U.S. going in and killing more people would not have helped. Other remarksWhichever candidate is elected will have a short time to serve before they are up for re-election again in November. Sink said she would spend her time working with FEMA on flood insurance. Jolly agreed with Sink that flood insurance reform should be a priority. But he added that constituent service had to be a major task. Young served for 43 years and he took care of Pinellas County, he said. Overby said he would focus on simplifying the tax code and getting taxes and spending down. If flood insurance is on a four-year hold, it can wait, he said. I want to make sure to keep as much money in the pockets of the people as possible. Sink said she wanted to go to Washington to be the voice for Pinellas County. I would be honored to serve as your congresswoman, she said. Overby said he had spent a year working with the community to find out what the people want. Im not part of the political machine, he said. Im not part of a party I have to answer to. I can do what the people want. Jolly said it was not easy to put yourself up before the public when you run for office. He said he would take his core values to Washington. I want less regulation and less taxes for the people in Pinellas County. For more information on the candidates, visit davidjolly.com, lucasoverby.com or alexfor congress.com. DEBATE, from page 1AAttendees sound off on candidates By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Pinellas County voters in District 13 were left with plenty to talk about following the hour-long debate between Republican David Jolly, Libertarian Lucas Overby and Democrat Alex Sink at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Monday night. The three candidates are vying to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat left vacant in that district when Rep. C.W. Bill Young died in October. The winner will be chosen in a March 11 special election. Several who were in the audience for the debate lauded the events fast-paced format, which featured a lightning round where single-word yes or no answers were encouraged and questions where candidates were given more time 30 to 60 seconds to respond. I have to commend the [debates] sponsors and moderators, said the Rev. Fr. Robert Swick, commander, JFK 1963 chapter and veterans advocate, of Dunedin. They worked hard to come up with an interesting format. Jeff Johnson, state director for AARP Florida, which sponsored the event, thought the format allowed for really good discussions on a variety of issues. He added, I think the moderators did a good job. They jumped around, but in a good way, and kept the pace up. It kept the candidates on their feet. Seminole City Councilor Chris Burke also commended the break from the usual debate format, particularly the lightning section. You didnt just get the candidates up there going, Blah blah blah, he said, which kept the audience more engaged. Of the many topics discussed, different issues resonated with different attendees. Camille Christian, a student at SPC, of Safety Harbor, was very interested in what the candidates had to say on the issue of financial aid for college and immigration law. But she was disappointed they didnt spend more time discussing legalizing marijuana. Corey Harpin of Clearwater agreed that student loans were a hot topic of the night. We need to reform the way funds are given out so students can afford to go to school, he said. But he wishes the candidates had spent more time discussing education reform overall. I have a 14-month-old son at home, he said. The decisions we make today are going to affect him. An operations manager at a manufacturing factory, Harpin also felt that the topic of expanding manufacturing jobs in the county and supporting small, local businesses should have been discussed. Though AARP members each have their own set of interests, all can appreciate discussions on social security, healthcare and Medicaid, Johnson said. But one question he thinks candidates should have answered at the debate: How can people currently working ever afford to retire? Its an important question to consider, he said, with pensions going away and an unstable economy. Burke wishes more time was spent on the goals for District 13. We didnt get any of their thoughts on the topic. Two issues stood out for Seminole City Councilor Patricia Plantamura: immigration reform and healthcare. Immigrants enrich both Americas culture and its economy, she said. Statistical data shows that immigrants are business creators. Theyre consumers. Theyre living in homes. Theyre a wonderful aspect of life in this country. She added, Its a non-partisan issue. Congress just needs to get it done. As for the candidates themselves, Burke felt there was no clear winner in the debate. Each candidate won on different topics, he said. Undecided on which candidate to support, he said he came to Mondays debate curious to see who they are and what they have to say. I liked David Jollys answer on being from Pinellas County, Burke said. I think he won on the local versus carpetbagging debate. As for Sink, she overstated her bipartisanship, Burke said, and lost time where she could have been more specific on various issues. He was also impressed by Overby, whom he didnt know much about prior to the debate. He was very well-spoken and informed on the issues, he said. Swick, a Democrat who supports Jolly, agrees. The young man, the libertarian, did a very fine job, he said. I liked his poise and his strength of fact. Everything he said was backed up by facts. He added, I didnt appreciate Sink. It seemed like she was hogging up the time. Christian, initially an undecided voter, didnt know much about any of the candidates prior to the debate. I thought all three candidates had something good to say, she said. But now she supports Sink, she said. She seemed very sincere and I appreciated that she shared her personal experiences. Harpin was also undecided going into the debate and left it fairly confident that he will vote for Sink. I really liked her, he said, and how she stayed on topic. I was taken aback by the runaround Jolly gave us. I didnt feel like he gave very direct answers on issues like the Affordable Care Act. Plantamura, a supporter of Sink before the debate, was also not very happy with Jollys answer on the Affordable Care Act. Because of the ACA, shes had healthcare since Jan. 1, she said. Republican or Democrat this is a bipartisan benefit, she said. I was very disappointed in Mr. Jollys shallow answer. As for the debate as a whole, Plantamura said SPC has a lot to be proud of. This whole event is a feather in the cap of the city of Seminole, she said. SPC Seminole provost James Olliver, said the school and its Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, were honored to host the event. St. Petersburg College always welcomes the opportunity to be a community partner, he said. And promoting civic engagement is one of the Institutes primary missions. Debating the policy issues, followed by informed voting, is what democracy is all about. TBN graphic by SUZETTE PORTERThree candidates campaigning for the District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives faced off during a Feb. 3 debate in the Digitorium at St. Pete Colleges Seminole campus. SCRAPBOOKING, from page 1Agymnasium where the scrapbookers worked was an added bonus and welcome method to stretch ones legs between pages, Snyder and Cornelius agreed. Were definitely going down the slide later, Snyder added. Snyder pointed out that scrapbooking, while it involves a lot of sitting, is a healthy diversion for the mind. It is a proven fact: women that craft I dont (just) mean scrapbook, but sew, knit, quilt, crochet live longer. Its a stress-relief, Snyder said. The event attracted several groups who meet regularly to share materials, ideas and the love of scrapbooks. One such group of a dozen women were set up side by side along a table in the center of the gym. After gifting one of their members, Karen Rodgers, with roses for her birthday, the group all wearing red, pink and white set off to take a picture together. Then each decorated a page on which the developed photograph would appear. This has been a great crop, said Mary Lubin of Safety Harbor as she pressed letters to spell out Crop Till You Drop. They said breakfast at 8. At 8 oclock, its out there. Lunch is exactly on time. Her friends agreed that organization is important. We totally know disorganized, said Julie Wilmarth of St. Petersburg. The group meets monthly at the craft store, Whim So Doodle in St. Petersburg. They started getting together primarily out of necessity, said Dianne Jerkins with a laugh. We needed tools from each other, she said. Everybody brought a friend, and before we knew it, there were 12 of us. The group participates in Operation Write Home, making cards for soldiers serving overseas to use to send their greetings back home. Mostly though, we just drink margaritas, Lupin said with a mischievous smile. The good, clean fun is expensive, they admitted. After all, scrapbooking is the art of spending almost $30 to frame a 99-cent photo, Lupin said. Do you see the 80 different products that were (using) to put on one photo? she asked the group in a moment of introspection. You have to have them all, Wilmarth insisted. Oh, you need them all, said Toni Slowgrove of Oldsmar. On a more serious note, scrapbooking is a means to a social end, said Dianne Thurn of St. Petersburg. Were all very different. Wed all probably not be friends if we didnt have scrapbooking in our mix, she said. The group supports each other, through cancer treatments and difficult surgeries, she added. They make every holiday festive and keep track of each others birthdays on a group calendar. Sometimes people dont take the time to do that, Thurn explained. It is really an amazing group. Teresa Nimrick of Largo, sitting with another group, said Crop Till You Drop gave her a chance to work on her own projects, a needed respite in her busy schedule of helping others. I take the weekend here to come and work for myself, she said. I like to be able to tell a story. But the conversation with friends taken up as Nimrick looked through pictures for her next project after finishing pages commemorating her sons graduation is part of the reason she came to the event. We could all be at home scrapbooking on our dining room tables why do we want to do that? Snyder asked. We want to get and meet people and talk and have fun.Photos by JULIANA A.

However, the board also will represent the Clearwater-Largo Road Community Redevelopment District. The Community Development Advisory Board, or CDAB, provides the commissioners with advice and citizen oversight of the community development department. Its tasks include reviewing its annual budget, capital improvement projects and the administration of community development block grants and housing initiatives, among others. The new board has similar goals, but will be focused on the redevelopment districts. Members will advise commissioners on: community redevelopment initiatives, incentive applications, plans and programs the districts annual report, budget, and capital improvement projects providing information to and obtaining input from residents, business and property owners about the citys programs to help establish new needs, plans and programs Because the new board will be made up of the already-established advisory board, commissioners questioned whether it would be sufficiently represented by those within the redevelopment districts. Commissioner Woody Brown asked if the new board might eventually break away from CDAB and be represented by solely members vested in the businesses and homes in the downtown area, once the CRAAB gets legs. City staff assured him that an independent board was the longterm goal, as the responsibilities and scope of CRAAB, as well as redevelopment districts themselves, grew. Brown later apologized for the bad joke. The four extra members of the new board must be appointed, a task that fell entirely to Mayor Pat Gerard, as per the Largo charter. The charter review commission didnt look at the mayor appointing every person on every board? she questioned. City Attorney Alan Zimmet said that the committee did have a full discussion on the issue. However, the members did not recommend changes to how advisory board members were appointed.That doesnt mean you cant propose the changes, Zimmet said.Gerard suggested that the commission talk about the issue when they considered charter amendments. Because, let me tell you, thats a lot of people, she said. Staff plans to schedule CRAABs first meeting in April, according to city documents. The meeting will consist of organizing the new board and presenting information about the districts. Anyone who wishes to join the new board should contact the mayors office at 587-6702 or by emailing pgerard@largo.com.For more about Largos redevelopment districts, visit bit.ly/1eUjD0Q.

BANKRUPTCY~BUSINESS andBANKRUPTCY~CONSUMER011614 Eight to run for Latvalas seat after longtime commissioner retiresBrickfield brings the list of announced candidates to eight five Republicans, one Democrat and two NPAs. Brickfield represented District 1 on the commission from 2008 to 2012. Latvala was one of four commissioners targeted by a group of citizens in what was commonly referred to as the eight is enough lawsuit. The citizens claimed the commissions longest-serving members were in violation of term limits approved by referendum in 1996 but never implemented. The state Supreme Court ruled term limits unconstitutional before they were ever added to the Pinellas County Charter. In the end, a Circuit Court judge ruled in favor of the commissioners. His opinion concurred with the county attorneys that a 2012 Supreme Court decision on term limits could not be applied retroactivity in Pinellas. Latvala, Seel, Welch and Morroni are free to run for election as many times as they want. Morroni, who also was elected to the commission in 2000, has announced his bid for reelection in November. Two others have announced a run for the District 6 seat fellow Republican Thomas Rask and Libertarian of Florida candidate Jack Harris. Commissioner Norm Roche is seeking a second term representing District 2 in November. Fellow Republican Ed Hooper has announced that he is running and Largo Mayor Pat Gerard, a Democrat, also has announced. Potential candidates still must qualify during the qualifying period in May and June.Long career of serviceLatvala was first elected to serve District 4 on the county commission in 2000. Prior to that, starting in 1992, she served two terms on the Pinellas County School Board. She is currently the commissions vice-chair, and by tradition, most likely would have been picked to serve as chair next year. Latvala currently serves as the chair of Tampa Bay Water. She is chair of the MPOs School Transportation Safety Committee, the countys Business Technology Services Board, the Consolidated Justice Information Systems Committee and Prescription Drug Task Force. She is a member of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board and the countys Health and Human Services Coordinating Council. She is past chair of the Tourist Development Council, Economic Development Council, Public Safety Coordinating Council and the countys Value Adjustment Board. She is a former member of the countys Charter Review Commission. She has served on many statewide boards, and is currently an executive board member for the Florida Association of Counties. She also serves on the board of a number of local civic organizations. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER In a surprise move, longtime Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala announced Jan. 28 that she is not seeking reelection in November. Latvala had previously announced that she would run to keep her job representing District 4. Her name still appears with seven others as announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. After much soul-searching, Latvala said Jan. 28, Ive decided not to seek re-election. She said her kids were in high school when she first ran for election. Now they are 35 and 36 and fixing to give me a grandchild, she said. Latvala became somewhat emotional as she made her surprise announcement. She said serving on the commission was the greatest honor of my life. You will be missed, but family is No. 1, said Commissioner John Morroni one of the first to speak after a moment of shocked silence. You will be missed. It was a real honor to serve with you, Commissioner Ken Welch added. I really am bummed out now. Commission Chair Karen Seel said, Im bummed out too and a little surprised, but family comes first. Seel added that serving on the commission often means that family has to come second. Seel made public Latvalas engagement to Jay Powers when she congratulated the couple at a recent commission meeting.Race for District 4 seatIf Latvala had stayed in the race, she likely would have faced several competitors in the Aug. 26 Republican primary, as Scott Fisher, Timothy Keffalas and Wanda Kimsey had already announced they would run. So far, only Jack McAdoo has announced for the Democrats. Two other announced candidates, Dustan Showers and Marcus Harrison, are not affiliated with any party. Since Latvala dropped out of the race, two more Republicans have jumped in. Johnny Johnson Jr. is a new name on the list of announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. Former County Commissioner Neil Brickfield posted on his Facebook page that he was jumping into the race as of Jan. 31.

Senate says no to flood insurance hikes By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County residents received a glimmer of hope last week that at least some relief may be coming to combat the unintended consequences of reform on the National Flood Insurance Program. The U.S. Senate approved by a vote of 67-32 Jan. 30 legislation proposed by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson. According to a press release from Nelsons office, the bill will delay many of the flood insurance rate increases for four years, during which time FEMA would be required to study the affordability of the policies and re-evaluate the accuracy of new flood maps. Pinellas has been described as ground zero due to the number of properties affected by sky-high flood insurance rate hikes due to implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Horror stories about monstrous rate increases have been told for months. The real estate industry is reeling. Government officials are concerned that property values could plummet. Pinellas County Commissioner Chair Karen Seel recently took a trip to Washington, D.C., to try to get federal lawmakers to understand the problems flood insurance reform was causing local residents. She reported at a recent commission meeting that she believed the trip did some good, which may be true at least in the Senate. We are finally coming to the point at which we can grant homeowners and businesses some relief from the huge, gargantuan sometimes tenfold increases in flood insurance premiums, Nelson said in a press release. Nelson and fellow Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu from Louisiana took the lead in asking for a rate-hike delay. Congress provided some relief for some of the affected homeowners when it passed the $1.1 trillion government-funding bill in December, Nelson said. The bill prevents the government from spending money this fiscal year to enforce higher premiums on homeowners due to the new flood maps. It also gives FEMA 60 days to provide Congress with a report on ways to keep rates more affordable. But the budget bills requirements were only a partial solution, Nelson said. Legislation passed Jan. 30 attempts to provide greater relief. Nelson pointed out that the measure still must pass the House where tea party members have said they intend to defeat it. Gov. Rick Scott applauded the Senates action and released a statement Thursday evening. I would like to thank the bi-partisan coalition of members in the U.S. Senate for their leadership and support on passing legislation to delay increases in flood insurance premiums for Floridians, Scott said. Florida has clearly been a donor state to the National Florida Insurance Program by contributing $16 billion over the last three decades, which is nearly four times the amount that Florida homeowners have received back in claims. This legislation, while not perfect, will provide relief to Florida families who have been disproportionally targeted by these unfair federal flood insurance rates hikes. I encourage their colleagues in the House to also support this common sense measure. The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber, which has been very active in efforts to get relief from the negative effects of flood insurance reform, sent out an update after the Senate vote. It will be a challenge to get it passed by the U.S. House and signed by the President, the email said. Both House Speaker (John) Boehner and President Obama have made it clear that they do not support a delay. In addition, none of the proposed relief measures applies to commercial property.

The suspect approached a woman who had two young children with her as they got out of their car between. JCPenney and Macys, the police report said. The suspect was armed with a handgun and pulled the slide back on the gun as he made his demands, police say. The woman pleaded with him not to hurt her or her children. When another car pulled into a nearby parking space, the suspect was startled and ran from the scene, the report said. There was a video taken of him from inside the mall before the incident and can be viewed on the Clearwater Police Department Facebook page, www.facebook.com /clearwaterpolice. The suspect is a black male in his mid-20s, about 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall. He was wearing a unique, white, baggy polo shirt with green and blue horizontal stripes and dark jeans. He also had a dark shoulder bag.

According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Julius Allen Balogh, 73, was traveling eastbound on Bay Pines Boulevard, when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a light pole on the south side of the road. The light pole cracked and fell onto the vehicle. Balogh was transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Deputies said Balogh may have lost control of the vehicle due to a medical condition. Duke Energy responded, took down power and removed the pole from atop the car. Eastbound traffic was interrupted for approximately two hours.Man charged with sexual batterySEMINOLE Detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Crimes Against Children Unit arrested a Seminole man Jan. 30 for three counts of sexual battery with a child under 12. According to the sheriffs report, the abuse occurred at various locations in the county on dates between 2008 and 2012. Detectives began their investigation on Jan. 29, after the victim disclosed to an acquaintance that the suspect had sexual contact with her on multiple occasions. Detectives interviewed the victim and eventually made contact with Terry Dale Alford, 33. Alford denied the allegations, but detectives said enough probable cause existed to arrest and charge Alford with three counts of sexual battery on a child under 12. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $450,000 $150,000 per charge.Man dies after car collides with treeCLEARWATER An Indian Rocks Beach man died about 3:15 a.m. Monday, Feb. 3, after losing control of his vehicle and hitting a tree on Feather Sound Drive in Clearwater.

Missouri Ave. about 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, shortly after the Super Bowl had ended, to order food. The manager at the restaurant noticed that he was intoxicated and had a child in the back seat. She asked him to pull his car over while she waited on his food to cook. Instead, she called Clearwater Police. Officers responding noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from Higgins. His eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and he failed several sobriety tests, the report said. He told officers he had been watching the Super Bowl and had consumed five beers. When asked why he was driving with a child in the car, he said that he didnt think he was intoxicated. Higgins was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a $2,500 bond.St. Petersburg man arrested for child abuseST.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK Bill Jackson, entrepreneur of the adventurous sporting goods store in Pinellas Park that bore his name, died at 3:45 a.m. Jan. 29, 2014. He was 98. His health began deteriorating after breaking his neck in a fall Jan. 6, said his son, Darry Jackson. But up until that point, Bill Jackson was still going to the store several times a week. Even two days before his death, still wearing a halo brace and barely able to talk, he had one request. He kept saying, I want to go to work, according to his son. I dont think he really comprehended that he had a halo on, Darry said. Bill Jackson was unique in that he not only rbuilt a successful and evolving business on five acres along what would become U.S. 19, but that he filled it with the ambitious and pioneering facilities needed to pass along his passion for the outdoors. Bill Jacksons Shop for Adventure includes four classrooms, a 100,000-gallon indoor pool to teach scuba diving, a gun range and an indoor training ski slope. If you were an accountant, youd look at that and say, You dont make enough money off that. You should put merchandise there, Darry explained. But he wanted to be able to teach and give everybody an outdoor experience. Bill Jackson was born in 1915 and didnt have a lot growing up, his son said. His mother died when he was 2. When he was young, he never got to do stuff in the outdoors, Darry said. The exception was a trip in a Model T Ford he took with friends to hike the Grand Canyon when he was 15. But for his own sons, Darry and Doug, Bill Jackson was determined to give them the opportunity to explore the outdoors. He taught them to scuba dive at age 4 and 5. Now, we would never recommend that to somebody, Darry interjected quickly. We didnt know enough in those days to know that wasnt right. In fact, Bill Jackson likely was the first store in Florida, if not the country, to sell scuba equipment. The Jacksons happened to be in the right place at the right time, just as a boat from Italy dropped off the first batch of Cressi and Squali equipment delivered to the United States in Miami. The Jacksons started one of the first scuba classes at a St. Petersburg public pool in the 1950s. Because Darry and Doug took an interest in camping at ages 6 and 7, the store began stocking camping equipment that was determined to be the best by the familys own research. Jacksons first truly outdoors department fishing supplies had been stocked mostly because the businesss first employee had an interest in the pastime. In 1970, the Jacksons bought the land where the current store stills stands. He cleared space for a road with a machete, his wife, Harriet, collecting palmetto hearts with pruners in his wake. Together, they staked out the basic outline of the new store, which wouldnt be completed until 1976. Over the years, the humble business, which started with the World War II veteran selling rat poison, laundry bleach, office furniture and army surplus out of a home garage, grew into a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Living up to its slogan Shop for Adventure, the store stocks a full range of equipment in seven departments: scuba diving, fishing, snow skiing, camping, backpacking, hunting and canoe and kayaking. Darry said he most cherished the times when he helped his father shape a vision for the future of the business. He always used to tell me that I bought too much of some product, he said. We just had great meetings. Wed sit and talk about the future of Bill Jacksons. The store underwent a number of expansions, including a fishing shack and a porch out to Freedom Lake, built around trees that Harriet Jackson insisted must stay. Its fun to be able to go over things like that with both my parents, Darry said. He said his father instilled in him and his brother who have long since taken over the day-to-day operation of the store and its full schedule of classes a propensity for constant improvement. You always wanted something better, to make the business a better business, he said. It sure wasnt like this when he started. It changes and keeps changing. The family held a private service at the gravesite last weekend. A celebration of life will be held in the Bill Jackson classrooms Sunday, Feb. 23, where he would like to be, Darry said. The family will serve up his favorite, pepper hot dogs, and show a slide presentation of his life, starting with a picture taken in 1930 with his three friends at the Grand Canyon. Along with his sons, his daughter-in-law Sharon and two granddaughters, Meischa and Marieka, Bill Jackson is survived by his wife; the couple celebrated their 67-year anniversary in December.

Rick Scott announced Jan. 24 that local defense partners in Pinellas County were awarded $200,000 through Floridas Defense Infrastructure Grant. Pinellas County was one of eight counties to receive a Defense Infrastructure Grant, which allotted $1.6 million to eight governments statewide. Scott said, These investments are critical to the continued growth and protection of Floridas military sector. This $200,000 investment will allow Pinellas County to address encroachment and buffering, transportation and access, and security issues. Across Florida, our military servicemen and women are dedicating their lives to protect our state and nation, and we must continue to fund these vital programs and protect the over 758,000 jobs the military and defense industry supports in Florida. Floridas military and defense industry is responsible for $73.4 billion, or 9.4 percent, of Floridas gross state product, which translates to jobs for more than 758,000 Floridians. In Pinellas County, the military and defense industry is credited with $3.61 billion in economic impact and 39,702 jobs. This grant has been utilized for more than 15 years as a key tool in maintaining Floridas reputation as the most military-friendly state in the nation. Sen. Jack Latvala said, Local military installations have long been an important part of our lives in Pinellas County. The grant funds will be put to good use building the pedestrian walkway at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater. Sen. Jeff Brandes said, Gov. Scott and the Legislature know the importance of supporting our military families and I applaud them for awarding $200,000 to Pinellas County. Rep. Ed Hooper said, The impact of Floridas military bases is often overlooked as an economic driver for the state. More than $70 billion is inserted annually into our economy by more than 750,000 personnel living in our state and, as a result, nearly 40,000 jobs have been created right here in Pinellas County. These grants go a long way to help preserve this economic asset. Rep. Larry Ahern said, The grant will help our military bases with much needed infrastructure improvements. These improvements will keep both military personnel and local citizens safe and secure. I applaud Gov. Scott and our Legislature for addressing this need. Rep. Jamie Grant said, These grants go a long way in helping preserve the economic impact our military bases and families have on Florida. I sincerely thank Gov. Scott and the Legislature for continuing to support the military in Pinellas County and across the state. Rep. Kathleen Peters said, Floridas military sector continues to be among the strongest in the nation thanks to critical funding from these two programs. Gov. Scott and the Legislature continue to support these programs and, in turn, allow us to keep more than $3.6 billion in economic impact here in Pinellas County. I thank them for awarding this funding to our community. Mike Meidel, director of Pinellas County Economic Development said, Pinellas County is honored to be able, with our partners, to enhance the campus of the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater at the St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport (PIE) through this Defense Infrastructure Grant. Clearwater is the largest and busiest Air Station in the Coast Guard, and with this grant we will address safety concerns and improve pedestrian access. The USCG Air Station Clearwater, the U.S. Army Reserve and the Florida National Guard employ over 700 personnel at PIE, and generate nearly $60 million annually in direct and indirect earnings in Pinellas County. The Florida Defense Grants Programs are administered by Enterprise Florida Inc. The grants are awarded annually, on a project-prioritized basis, to communities hosting military installations.

12A Viewpoints Leader, February 6, 2014I dont remember thinking much about trash as a kid. I was fortunate to have a brother and that was his job. We didnt recycle. Not many did back then. I dont remember doing trash when in college or even after I got my first apartment. Im sure I took it somewhere and someone hauled it away. Trash became part of my life not long after I married for the first time. We rented a house on 100 acres well outside Fayetteville, Ark. It came with a fireplace, plenty of well water, a 100-year-old garden, and a view that just kept on giving. But no one picked up the trash. The county provided a dumpster across the highway from a little convenience store about 10 miles away. We drove there a couple of times a month with a pickup truck filled with trash bags. The dumpster was usually overflowing. We finally purchased a home on 10 acres a little closer to town. The well water smelled like rotten eggs. The old oak barn had no fireplaces. There was no garden and no one came for the garbage. But, it was ours and we loved it. Funny thing, the only legal place to take our trash was that same little dumpster, except now it was about 20 miles away. We began to recycle everything we could. We sold our aluminum cans at a beer distributing company. We took our paper to a place run by a nonprofit for the disabled. No one took plastic, steel cans or glass. We composted religiously, trying to turn that sticky red clay ground into soil so we could garden. We minimized our trash as much as we could. And monthly, we filled the back of the pickup and drove 20 miles to the dumpster that was usually overflowing. Twenty-two years later, I parted ways with my first husband and moved to town. For the first time in nearly 20 years, I lived in a place where someone came and hauled away the garbage. There was a nifty little wooden rack with a row of metal garbage cans. I used them every day just because I could. Only those who have lived without could understand the luxury. When I moved to Florida a couple of years later with my soon-to-be second husband, we lived in an apartment. Residents had to carry their trash to a dumpster on the other side of the complex. I took our trash to the dumpster most every day at first. Then I figured out when it would be full to overflowing and skipped those days. Apartment life really wasnt our thing, so a year later we moved to a house in Belleair. The city sent around garbage trucks twice a week. I missed the luxury of being able to go to that dumpster any time I wanted. If you got busy and forgot it was trash day, you were out of luck. Weve lived in Largo for nearly 10 years now and bought our home a little more than three years ago. Weve concentrated on reducing our trash by recycling and composting. It doesnt matter if we forget a trash day because we rarely have enough for two. But we almost always have three containers full of recycling, and theyre usually overflowing. Last week, we received our new recycling container. And its huge. I cant tell you how excited I am. The city of Largo is providing mixed recycling service. Theyll be no more sorting. For us, the service starts this week. We can start putting in glass and steel cans, and juice and milk cartons, too. You have to rinse them out just like the aluminum, but thats no big deal. We can recycle plastic containers #3 through #7. Im already visualizing the empty space where the stacks of kitty litter buckets in the garage are now. We wont have to hold the paper when it rains because the container has a lid. I do most of my work on the computer, but I still love hardcopy. Being able to get rid of most of it every week makes me giddy with joy. Some may not appreciate the luxury. But I sure do. Im anxious to see if my neighbors who dont recycle now will start. It couldnt be easier. Only those who have lived without can understand the luxury. Thank you Largo.Suzette Porter is Internet services manager for Tampa Bay Newspapers.I sympathize with all the sick passengers on the several cruise ships weve been reading about in the past few weeks. Im amazed that the cruise lines are still operating, and that vacation travelers continue to risk ghastly gastro-intestinal ailments by booking passage on any of those floating palaces. These reports take me back 65 years, to my first ocean cruise and the disaster I experienced. The vessel was far from luxurious. It was a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Bristol, based in Newport, R.I. I had boarded the ship only a few days earlier after completing radioman training at the Norfolk, Va., naval base. I was 18 and had joined the Navy the previous summer in order to escape being drafted into the Army. I feared dying in an obscure foxhole after the Soviet Union declared war on the western world. Im not sure why I thought death on the high seas was preferable to death in a foxhole. Further evidence of my mental acuity was the fact that I had suffered from motion sickness from infancy onward. Id get sick in the family car, on a playground swing, on amusement park rides, or in a canoe moving through a frog pond. In the face of all that, what did I do? I joined the Navy!A week after I boarded the Bristol, we went on training maneuvers in the north Atlantic, a region famous for its stormy waters, especially in March. I spent the ensuing fortnight in two places: clinging to my bunk with a bucket beside me, or dry-heaving over a rail outside the radio shack. Crew members passing by made sympathetic remarks such as Still feeding the fishes, Driver? I was useless to perform any duties. At any single moment I was afraid I was going to die. Two minutes later I feared that I might not. As I lay immobilized in my bunk, shipmates kept playing a rhythm-and-blues song called I Want a Bow-Legged Woman, performed by Bull Moose Jackson. The lyrics are branded into my soul.When the Bristol returned to Newport, I was prepared to be shot, given a medical discharge or transferred to an Army base in the Sahara desert. Instead, the Navy sent me to a nut-house. The official title was Ward L (the psychiatric unit) of the Chelsea Naval Hospital, just outside downtown Boston. The Navy figured that motion sickness was a form of mental illness. For two weeks my companions were sailors incapacitated by a variety of mental/emotional ailments. One was a convicted murderer, transferred from a Navy prison to be treated for epilepsy. Another was a man so homesick he had attempted suicide. A third was a transvestite deserter who was found performing in a Boston gay bar. Then there was a chief petty officer who had suffered for years from chronic unexplained dysentery. Obviously, my motion sickness was a ready-made affliction to help me fit easily into this bizarre gallery. My treatment consisted of several steps. One was dime-store psychoanalysis. Seaman Driver, did your parents beat you? Did you ever get a girl pregnant? Do you get a thrill from seeing a chicken? When those incisive queries failed to identify any Freudian traumas, the Navy therapists attached a dozen or so electrodes to my skull and measured the radioactive beeps and blurps that could be detected. Once it was clear that I wasnt a psychopath I was assigned critical duties such as sweeping and swabbing the hospitals floors. And so it went, until the day a doctor summoned me to hear the verdict that would alter the course of my life. Seaman Driver, our conclusion is this: we feel you are an average, not-especially-bright young man whose perennial vomiting while traveling on erratically-moving objects is genuine, i.e., youre not faking it in the hope of being assigned to shore duty. We have no idea what causes your problem. So were sending you back to your ship, with this bottle of pills. The bottle contained a newly-developed drug called Dramamine. It was a miracle. Ive lived with it ever since. I will not board an aircraft or an ocean-going vessel without first popping a Dramamine tablet. Its only unwelcome side effect is drowsiness, which has occasionally lowered the trajectory of my otherwise meteoric career. But thats another column, perhaps. Unfortunately, from what I read, the recent cruise ship plagues cannot be prevented or easily cured by taking a pill. The only apparent solution is for the traveling public to steer clear of ocean voyages. Im all for that. One of the joys of my life is the immense satisfaction of staying home with the TV and watching Rick Steves schlepping all over Europe.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

I was a member of this group for many years, before realizing that the expenses of belonging to the clown alley were becoming too much. Now, let me give a bit of background as to why. Sure there were dues to belong to the club, but that was only a very small portion of the costs involved. Keep in mind that this is a group who volunteers its services to the community of Largo, and yes, at the time, in association with the City of Largo. Besides dues, the City of Largo required that everyone have a recreation card. Thats a bit of money, especially when our whole family was involved And then each person had to pay for the use of the Citys Community Center room for the one hour of use each month per person. And this is all for a group who volunteers for the city at events the city requests clowns for. Remember, this is a clown group who volunteers their time and materials, such as balloons, face paints etc. If you are unaware, these items can be quite expensive. And remember volunteering. Florida Clown Day has always been one of my favorite times spent with the children of Largo and surrounding areas. I have enjoyed taking my little clown car, and my three children and we have enjoyed clowning with the kids. This all makes me contemplate how the city of Largo must not realize the value of these clowns and their services. I also do paid clowning. The City obviously either has no idea the value of these clowns or just doesnt care. To have over one hundred clowns available to the community at Florida Clown Day is an event that is hard to beat. It is not the fault of a clown alley who volunteers their time that the city is so irresponsible with city money that they need to charge volunteers to volunteer for the benefit of the City. It just frustrates me that the city of Largo is trying to spin this as if Uptown Clowns has been getting some kind of sweetheart deal. Just saying. Dean Adams Largo2014 perspective on Roe versus WadeEditor: In 1973, the same year Roe versus Wades Abortion Act was passed, co-workers disclosed to me that they knew of a single woman who had already had one abortion, and was in the process of scheduling a second. When I asked them why, they indicated that they believed the expectant mother was single, had no supporting family, church, job or benefits, and was not of sound mind since having taken the life of her first and only child at age 18. In 1949, a single mother with no job, three young mouths to feed and having recently experienced her husbands death, in the midst of severe loneliness and grief, becomes pregnant. Worse yet, she is left in a foreign city to fend for herself and her children. Somehow, she manages to struggle through the experience, remarries a former high-school sweetheart in 1951, and moves back into her small hometown to raise her family. While these two stories share very similar circumstances at the start, their outcomes at the finish line are extremely different. On Feb. 8, the 1949 single mother will turn 92. She is an amazing individual in stature, courage, grace and dignity, with a healthy respect for life and for countless others. During the last 64 years, I have come to know her from a much deeper and broader perspective as to her capabilities, commitment and maternal love. There is nothing she failed to sacrifice for any of the family members throughout their adolescence and well into their adulthood with their respective families, a beacon or measure for others to follow. Isnt it ironic then, that after all of this, she finds herself once again in the same dilemma for she must now face the very same issues and questions of the unborn or soon to be aborted child. When she cant speak, eat or stand-up for herself and life is coming to an end or her life-sustaining functions begin to fail as they will for all of us who have been given the opportunity to travel lifes journey and all of the wonderful and unknown experiences it has to offer, who then will be best able to speak, care and take action on her behalf if not for the unborn child. Lorian J. Tripp Largo A local hero Editor: Step out your door and begin walking and you will likely not go very far before you pass one of the many heroes living in this area who have yet to be recognized and rightfully praised. Just look a bit closer, for example, at the following life of a local man who fits this category all too well, and then judge for yourself if you would also call him a hero. From his earliest days, he had no doubt that music would be a necessary part of his life. Back in the 1940s and 1950s, as he helped to build army tanks at Baldwin Locomotive Works, he was working along with, and playing music for, Mario Lanza, who was still studying opera at that time. He went on to play guitar in the Westinghouse band, and then bass in a variety of other bands, with noted stars like Billy Holiday, Cab Calloway, and Dave Brubeck. But all of those impressive times did not, of course, make him a hero. That would come later. Much later. After working at Westinghouse, building generators for battleships, he then moved on, and, for the next 36 years, he owned and ran a car lot until he finally retired. From that point on, he had to cope with the next big challenge in his life, his advancing age. All the way up through his 70s and 80s, he held his own quite well. But when he reached the age of 90, things began to fall apart. That job at Westinghouse, building generators, included a good amount of asbestos dust filling the air, at a time when that threat to health attracted little attention, fluid began to appear in his lungs. And then he actually began to fall. During the next few years, he fell eight times, breaking his ribs and both shoulder blades. Aspirin was prescribed for the pain, and that gave him bleeding ulcers. On one of his falls, he tore off most of the skin from his left elbow down to his wrist, leaving a large area of the flesh beneath exposed. His skin by then had dried out, and it became so fragile that simply touching it too hard would cause a pool of blood to appear beneath it. Now comes the amazing part. His name is Vito Prudente, a little guy, 137 pounds, and, up to this very moment, after all that life has inflicted upon him, he not only keeps going day to day, but he does so always with a cheerful word and a smile for everyone he meets. He keeps moving among us, with a cane and a shuffle, and with that sly little pixie look of his, so full of joy at simply still being alive that he brightens every room he enters. Vito is one of the bravest individuals I have ever known. At age 94 now, and still going strong, he represents, by any definition, that category of a true hero who persists, with all the odds against him, to conquer each day with his own joy, and to readily share that joy with others.

The presentation will be suitable for teenagers and families of all faiths. In 1938, Germany invaded Austria, causing many Jewish families to flee Austria to avoid persecution. Among the emigrants was 8-year-old Eva Geiringer, who with her mother, brother, and father moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors was a German Jewish girl of the same age. Her name was Anne Frank. The two girls became friends and playmates. They passed the time by skipping, playing hopscotch and marbles, and drinking lemonade that Annes mother prepared. Ultimately, both girls and their families were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. She recalls the day Anne Franks father showed her a small package containing his daughters diary, and his path in bringing himself back to life by publishing the diary around the world. Eva is a courageous individual who works tirelessly to end the violence and bigotry that continues to plague our world, said Rabbi Alter Korf, of the Chabad Jewish Center of St. Petersburg, the organization sponsoring the event. We are honored and excited to play host to this great person. Schloss has never visited the Tampa Bay area, and it is likely she will not return. Organizers say they are expecting a large turnout from across the spectrum of the greater community. Worship calendar

Outdoors 15A Leader, February 6, 2014 Obituaries FLORENCE TAYLOR May 20, 1914 January 24, 2014 Her family is sorry to announce that after a marvelous life of almost 100 years, Florence Ida Parker Taylor (nee Vint) has passed away in Toronto. She was predeceased by her husband, Hugh B. Parker (1963); second husband, Leon A. Taylor (2004); and stepson, David Taylor (1990). She has left wonderful memories for her children and their spouses: Carol Shaw (Wayne), Hugh C. Parker, (Judy), and Joy Parker Blackwood (Billy Ray), and for her stepchildren, Peter Taylor, Patricia Taylor and Glen Taylor (Joanna). Florence enjoyed and was loved by her grandchildren, Ross Galloway (Liz Marshall), Lynn Galloway (Nicholas Goboly), Christine Parker (Todd Joyes), Karen Craig (Ryan), and Victoria and Leilani Taylor, as well as great grandchildren, Brody Galloway and Quinn and Abigail Joyes. She will be missed by her sister, Lois Parker; sister-in-law, Dora Davenport and niece, Joan Munoz, as well as by Murray Galloway, Jill Burns, and countless friends in Florida, Montreal, Ontario and elsewhere. Florence loved life. Born in Toronto, she attended Balmy Beach and Williamson Road Public Schools, Moulton Ladies College, and Shaws Business School. She was a talented musician with dreams of a concert pianist career; a dream cut short by the depression of the 1930s. She loved participating in sports of every kind, and continued to swim lengths of the pool almost daily at her home in Florida and at Amica at Bayview, until well into her nineties. Florence loved travelling and saw much of the world. Her main passion was her love of, and devotion to, Christian Science. She was a Christian Science Practitioner, and was active in every avenue of her church. Having lived for 36 years in Florida after her husband retired, it was quite a decision to return to Toronto at age 92 to be closer to her family. But she easily made friends at Amica and participated in everything from bridge games and movie nights to the glee club and the Sudoku group. She was one of the last members of the Monitor Club of Toronto. Thanks to Ruth, Beverly, Novlette and Solange for their loving support and care, as well as to the staff at Amica. The love of each of us goes with you on your on-going journey, Mom! An afternoon to remember Florence Taylor will be held at a later date. In lieu of owers, a contribution to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church 1955 S.

The pipe was fixed by 3 a.m. Sunday. Tom Iovino with county Communications said Saturday afternoon that the problem had stopped the water flow entirely to Fort De Soto Park. Water is not getting to the park at all, Iovino said. We thought it best to close it. All park restrooms, water fountains and campground showers were inoperative. Burrell said it was impossible to estimate revenue lost due to the three-day closure. Fort De Soto Park welcomes approximately 2.7 million visitors each year. Using numbers from 2011 and 2012, an average of about $2,000 a day was collected in parking fees on the first weekend of February. An average of 6,595 people visited the park on those days in 2011, 2012 and 2013. All 216 campsites were occupied when officials decided to close the park due to lack of water, Burrell said. Staff worked with the campers already at the park, allowing them to stay. Drinking water was provided as needed. By Sunday, 160 campsites were still occupied and 163 were in use on Monday. It is not known whether the campers left due to the water problem or if they had only planned to stay one night, Burrell said. The county put up a variable message sign on Madonna Boulevard, which is located before the park entrance, to notify park visitors. However, some people were still determined to gain entrance to the park, especially those who had driven from out of the area. Burrell said park rangers used their own discretion to let some in, including boaters. All were cautioned not to drink the water. She said all water fountains had been covered to deter their use. They tried to be as flexible as they could, she said. A boil water order remained in effect through Monday evening as officials waited for results of tests. Meanwhile, all tap water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes had to be brought to a rolling boil for one to three minutes, or residents could use bottled water as an alternative. Burrell explained that the EPA required that results of water tests taken on two consecutive days come back clean before the boil order could be lifted. Anytime water pressure drops below a certain level, the possibility exists for contamination. Microbes, if present in the water, can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly and people with severely compromised immune systems. People with specific health concerns should consult a doctor. Iovino said Monday evening that the first test had come back clear. Around 9 p.m., he sent out a press release announcing that the second test also had passed muster. The boil water notice was lifted. Fort De Soto Park reopened Tuesday morning. Pinellas Countys Department of Environment and Infrastructure thanks all of our customers for their cooperation during this event, the press release said. For more information, call 464-4000. WATER, from page 1ADolphin female wanted to get away but escape was futileMales fight over females, right? This is hard to confirm at sea with dolphins. It can be hard to verify that dolphins are fighting rather than engaging in other lively but non-hostile activities. Fighting makes a lot of splashing that obscures opponent identities. But there are clear moments when you can identify males fighting over a female. If you take her perspective, you see that her options are limited. A shy female we call WR was at the center of huge skirmishes in 2013, two in summer and two around Christmas. I hope she had a break in between. The biggest fight was on July 4. The elements set the stage. Stormy eastern skies were sapphire blue. The setting sun shown like a spotlight on the green and beige islands of Johns Pass, crowded with people, ice chests and volleyball nets instead of resting birds. The dolphin fight started abruptly. It would include a dozen bulls before it was over but it was mainly six, all healthy in body and appetite. Three started throwing serious punches right away. That is, they thrashed each other with their powerful peduncles until the scene resembled a cartwheel tournament. WR was generally embroiled in a mating mob of three or four writhing bulls. Each bull exerted great effort to mate but prevent others from mating by thrusting himself between any dolphins that drew their bodies together, sometimes with audible thuds. Nearby, milling bulls snorted their discontent. To avoid the males, WR floated at the surface on her back as long as she could, her white belly luminous against dispassionate sapphire skies. Inevitably, a bulky bull slammed down on her and she vanished in the lather of struggle. Again and again, males appeared and dove on her, shoving each other aside and skidding back into the fray. Their battle barks and growls attracted more males until there were scuffles all around. The oceans commotion drew the people from their ice chests to stand in ankle-deep water and watch until the skies were aflame with fireworks. The summer fighting over WR went for three weeks until she left the study area. Then, in that enchanting trend among our local dolphins, she returned in the fall as her mother J gave birth to this years calf. She was still with Scarface and his buddy Gazio. They must have won the bull battles over her. Around Christmas, they encountered local rivals determined to test their mettle. Capt. John Heidemann turned our boat into a northern cove in our study area just as a dolphin fight ended. We caught the last two tail whips. As we headed over, local boys Scrapefin and Ski headed out, slowly swimming 5 feet apart in the stately unison of dolphins on display. It had been quite a fight, indicated by the large mud plumes that dotted the area, which fighting dolphins usually create, and the many people on their balconies, now glaring as if the dolphin fight stopped because of us. Meanwhile, the vanquished had escaped underwater. Outside the cove, WR was alternately accompanied by pairs of bulls, the larger bulls Scrapefin and Ski harrying the younger bull pair Scarface and Gazio. The younger bulls bond is fairly new but showed one characteristic of bonded bulls: One bull tends to be bolder. Today Scarface was bolder, shoving Scrapefin back while Gazio swam the sidelines. It was hard to tell WRs preferences. She acted like a compliant dance partner traded between partners. Then we saw that she wanted to get away but escape was futile. Three times, she rocketed out of the jostling bullpen at her greatest speed, racing a hundred yards underwater and then skimming over it to catch her breath and continue her escape. She has the unique physical advantage of being able to empty and refill her lungs in a fraction of a second. But like you, a dolphin can only give it her all as long as she can and then must slow to catch her breath. This gives the other dolphins time to catch up. Time and again, we watched her sprint away vigPhoto by ANN WEAVERDolphins sometimes leave the water to avoid the bites or blows of other dolphins, as skirmishing bottlenose dolphins demonstrate during a winter clash. orously and her companions follow unswervingly. Finally, she, Scarface and Gazio ducked down a convenient canal. Competitors Scrapefin and Ski seemed to lose interest. They continued past the panting escapee to toy with some teens down the way. But they would be back. The next week was an instant replay. Again, we got to the same cove just in time to see distance dolphins give the final tail whips amid telltale mud plumes indicating a serious skirmish. This time, we saw one of the dolphins shoot out of the group, rocket under our boat and blast another hundred yards out of the cove. There was no telling who it was. But as its followers charged past and we identified Scrapefin, Ski, Scarface and Gazio, we knew the fleeing dolphin was little lady WR. Outside, the two sets of bulls caught up and alternately accompanied WR. When temporarily ousted, each pair would arch over the surface in patent display, once even grunting (which is rare). They circled like whooping Indians until conflict resumed. They fell upon one another in writhing mating mobs, punctuated by cartwheel contests of traded tail-whips and desperately swimming between any two dolphins that drew their bodies together. Eventually, a large yacht came by and the competitors surfed away. We have not seen WR or her companions since. Her tormentors Scrapefin and Ski remain here. For her sake, I hope they do.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver A warming trend has made a big difference in the fishing in northern Pinellas. Afternoon high tides this past week helped to usher in some warmer water that has spurred on a sunset bite that rivaled those in years past. Both redfish and gator trout have both been waiting for it to warm up a bit for an opportunity to feed. Targeting mullet schools at the later part of the incoming tide all the way through the heart of the outgoing tide this week produced good catches. Working soft plastic jerk baits through the thickest part of the mullet schools as they made their way off the flats on the late evening outgoing tide has been the pattern. If youre an artificial lure purist, this is your time of year. Its simple; the fish are scattered and hungry. Drifting through schools of post-spawn mullet while fan casting weedless rigged jerk baits gives you the best chance possible at finding aggressively feeding fish. Watching the tides, these windows of spectacular fishing will be based on good timing more than anything. Afternoon high tides in between fronts are the best fishing periods. Look for the first few days of the upcoming full moon to set the stage. These good tides usually stretch from three days prior to the moon and peak three days after the moon. Target no-motor zone flats and many of the spoil islands that dot the Intracoastal Waterway. Schools of mullet are a bit hard to come by out there right now but are definitely the key. The reds and trout will shadow these mullet schools waiting for food to be disrupted by their presence. Dark colored soft plastics mimic shrimp and crabs perfectly and up current casts will fool quality fish more often than others. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

16A Sports Leader, February 6, 2014 020614727-584-7706 More than 1,000 expected for Belleair Sunset 5K fundraiser for the Rec Center. Back then it was held in the morning. Five years ago it was changed to a 5K in the evening and that is when its popularity took off. People come back year after year, said Felten. This year one woman who has been participating for years told me she finally registered before the early deadline; she signed up early to get the discount. Although serious runners from all over participate in the race, there is more to the event than that. In addition to the 5k run, there is also a 1-mile fun run and nobody necessarily needs to run, participants can walk the course as well. As long as they are registered and are paid up they qualify for that after-party, which some have said is the only reason they show up. The race is held on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. Participants can register online at imathlete.com and look for Belleair Sunset, or in person at the Dimmitt Community Center. Online registration closes on Feb. 12, but in-person registration continues right through the day of the event. The discount date is passed so the registration cost is $30 for adults and $20 for children from 5 to 15. For that registrants get a t-shirt, awards for the top finishers and the post-race party. People need to go because it really is fun, said Felten. It is really the deal of the century. By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR For the past several years the number of participants in the Belleair Sunset 5k Race this year held Saturday, Feb. 15 has grown. Four years ago, 400 runners registered for the run. The following year it grew to 750 and last year the total was 900. This year, organizers expect at least 1,000 runners, making it the largest ever. Way back when, the first race attracted only 48 runners, said Danielle Felten, Belleairs special events coordinator. Now were expecting over 1,000 because more and more people are talking about it. Felten says the parade route may have something to do with its growing popularity. The route goes through down and along Bayview and the bluffs and it gives everyone a great view of the beautiful scenery, she said. Even the walkers like it, weve gotten rave reviews. The runners just have a good time on that route. One of the regular participants in the race agrees with that assessment. Jim White has been running in the race for years. I enjoy it, it goes past the houses and the bluffs, it is a nice run, he said. The athletic websites all bill it as a picturesque run so it has some attraction because of that. White says he is not surprised that the event is growing every year. It is well advertised and is a nice town event, he said. Im hoping to do real well this year but I have some training to do. Ive been sick and had a twisted ankle but Im back at it now. Another reason why the race is popular according to White is the after-party. Felten acknowledges that it is something that attracts the runners. I can only say the party is the best time ever, she said. Every registered runner gets to attend the party and besides entertainment there is free food and drink for everybody, all you can eat. Belleair resident Amy Maguire, her husband Sean and daughters Megan, 12 and Molly, 10 are regulars in the race. No one is more enthusiastic about the event than Maguire. There are so many people from all over who come to the race and they make it exciting, she said. Last year I talked to people from St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs and they told me how much they love to come to Belleair for the race. Maguire says she and her family have been participating in the race almost since the beginning. You establish milestones when you do something like this, she said. When my youngest was just 7 she actually ran the entire race. It was a community event and she was with all her friends and they ran the race. They never would have dreamed they could run that far. Maguire says she and her family intend on participating in the race for years to come. The race was started 12 years ago as a 10k run and was held as a Photo by BRIAN GOFFRunners are set to go at last years Belleair Sunset 5K race. More are expected this year.

It would be difficult to overstate Crays impact on rock, rhythm and blues since the release of his 1980 album debut Whos Been Talkin. Over the course of his career, Cray has invited listeners along on his epic musical journey breaking through the pop ceiling with his gate crashing/blues-edged trademark sound, distinct playing style and daring innovations. Vintage Trouble will bring their stage stealing rock, soul and blues infused performance to the festival. Boasting four guys with a passion for music and a ton of soul, Vintage Trouble has won over entire continents, bringing an unforgettable passion to the stage and capturing the hearts of thousands. In between touring the world with Bon Jovi, Lenny Kravitz, Brian May of Queen, The Cranberries and Van Hunt, Vintage Trouble has headlined smaller venues creating a raucous energy that captivates the audience and turns clubs and pubs into wild late night parties. The band released its debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, in 2011. Savoy Brown was formed in London in 1965 by guitarist Kim Simmonds. Originally a UK version of a Chicago blues band, the group developed into a classic and highly original rock band but always managed to keep its blues roots intact. The bands 1967 debut, Shakedown, helped launch the British blues boom. Savoy Brown continued to find commercial success as a blues band in the 1970s with albums such as Hellbound Train. The band will release a new album, Goin to the Delta, in February. More blues on the billWidely regarded as one of worlds very best female guitar-players, Ana Popovics career has been meteoric, and shows no signs of slowing down. The Serbian-born musician has become one of the most lauded blues guitarists on the circuit. Popovic moved to Memphis to capture the citys greasy Stax sound, record at Ardent Studios, and play with its finest musicians. Albert King and WAR equally inspire her 2013 LP Can You Stand The Heat. The most impressive aspect of her music is her diversity of techniques and styles. Her blend of smoking electric funk slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals, tight blues groove, soulful feminine vocals and her incredible stage presence makes her an irresistible force in the music world.

Born in 1991 in St. Louis, Mo., Marquise Knox hails from a musical family deeply entrenched in the blues. He learned how to play guitar from his grandmother Lillie whose family members were sharecroppers and whose great, great grandparents were slaves. He also played with his Uncle Clifford, who was a major influence in Knoxs life. For Knox, blues is his heritage and a way of life. He spent his early teenage years in St. Louis mentoring under the late great blues legend, N.E.A. Heritage Fellowship recipient and Grammy Award winner Henry James Townsend. Knoxs talents have earned him performing rights with some of Americas most notable blues performers such as blues legend and Grammy Award winners B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins and David Honeyboy Edwards. He has also performed at dozens of festivals, and has toured Germany and played the Baden Blues Festival in Switzerland. came to national prominence after relocating to New Orleans in 1999. His recording career began in 1996 as a local/regional New Orleans-based artist. Beginning in 2006, when Alligator Records picked him up, he began touring nationally and internationally. He recorded three albums for Alligator and has since issued several CDs on smaller indie labels. Like the legendary female singers she most admires Etta James, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin Lauren Mitchell gives audiences everything she has and then some. From her roots singing in the churches of Ohio, to the southern blues and rock scene throughout Florida, Mitchell has honed her craft by singing her heart out in hundreds of honkytonks and blues halls along the way. Her distinctive brand of fullthrottle, all-or-nothing stage performances leave audiences begging for more. With a smoking-backing band, Mitchell is based in central Florida and plays on the big stages throughout the South, the Midwest, and the East Coast. Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Rufs 2011 release, Girls with Guitars. Fueled by the trios Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the United States, and the international buzz it created in the blues world, Fish recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like Down In The Swamp with the mellow small-hours jazz of Feelin Alright, while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut in 2012. Fish followed up Runaway last September, unleashing her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on the new album Black Wind Howlin. Rather than trying to duplicate what she accomplished on her first success, Fish re-defines her sound throughout the tracks on Black Wind HowlBLUES, from page 3B OPENING, from page 1BRated: PG-13 Based on author Richelle Meads worldwide bestselling series, Vampire Academy tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry), two 17-year-old girls who attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi, mortal, peaceful vampires, and Dhampirs, halfvampire/half-human guardians. Rose, a rebellious guardian-intraining and her best friend, Lissa a royal vampire princess have been on the run when they are captured and returned to St. Vladamirs Academy, the very place where they believe their lives may be in most jeopardy. Thrust back into the perils of Moroi Society and high school, Lissa struggles to reclaim her status while Rose trains with her mentor and love-interest, Dimitri (Danila Kozlovsky), to guarantee her place as Lissas guardian. Rose will sacrifice everything to protect Lissa from those who intend to exploit her from within the academy walls and the Strigoi immortal, evil vampires who hunt her kind from outside its sanctuary.The following will open in limited release.

PETERSBURG The 20-time Grammy award winner Pat Metheny will bring his Unity Group to the Tampa Bay area for a one-night special performance set for Sunday, Feb. 9, 7 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S. Tickets start at $45. Call 893-7832 or visit www.themahaffey.com. Methenys body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras and ballet pieces with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical. Pat Metheny, Ben Williams, Chris Potter, Giulio Carmassi and Antonio Sanchez are the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Pat Metheny Unity Group is an extension of Methenys Unity Band project. In 2012, he partnered with Sanchez (drums), Williams (bass) and Potter (saxophone) as a quartet. The group toured Europe and the United States. In 2013, Metheny sought to capitalize on the bands success and officially announced the formal formation of the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Unity Band project was life-changing for me said guitarist Pat Metheny in a press release Ted Kurland Associates. I have led many groups of talented musicians, but what went down with that band on a night-after-night basis was inspiring in a way that was really unlike anything else. When we did our last gig, as we walked off the stage all I could think about was that I didnt want it to end, and I knew it was the same for Chris, Antonio and Ben, too. Metheny also announced an anticipated album and world tour. For the past few months, I have been trying to find a way to extend our time together, Metheny said. At the same time, I have been feeling the pull to do the kind of lush and harmonically dense music with lots more written material that has always been a big part of my larger groups and projects. One night I woke up with the tantalizing idea of really taking Unity concept all the way and forming a platform for the first time that could cover the entire spectrum of things that I have done as a bandleader over the years under one roof. With this lineup, everything from Bright Size Life to Secret Story to all of my Group stuff to Song X could be within range and more. With the new incarnation of the project, a new face joined the lineup. An incredible musician appeared on my radar thanks to a recommendation from my friend, bassist Will Lee, Metheny said. His name is Giulio Carmassi. He comes from Italy and I guess you could say that he is a multi-instrumentalist, but that barely scratches the surface of what he does. Carmassi is a piano and keyboard player, and also plays woodwinds and brass, guitars, bass, drums and, according to Metheny, he sings like an angel. He told me he was inspired by seeing one of my bands perform in Italy when he was young and often thought about having the multi-instrumentalist seat on one of my projects, Metheny said. With Guilio added to the core just about anything will be possible. The Pat Metheny Unity Group released the new album Kin Feb. 4.Pat MethenyAccording to the biography provided by Ted Kurland Associates, Metheny was born in Lees Summit, Mo., in 1954, into a musical family. He began playing trumpet at age 8, and, at age 12, he switched to guitar. By his mid-teens, Metheny was playing regularly with some of the best jazz musicians in Kansas City and, in return, earning priceless on-the-bandstand experience. Methenys introduction to the international jazz scene came in 1974. Over the course of his three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, Metheny displayed his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility. His debut album soon followed: Bright Size Life (1975) helped re-imagine the traditional jazz guitar sound for a new generation of players. Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument. Over the years, Metheny has won countless polls as Best Jazz Guitarist and plenty of awards, including three gold records for Still Life (Talking), Letter from Home and Secret Story. He has also won 18 Grammy Awards spread out over a variety of different categories including Best Rock Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Recording, Best Jazz Instrumental Solo, Best Instrumental Composition. The Pat Metheny Group won an unprecedented seven consecutive Grammies for seven consecutive albums. Metheny has spent most of his life on tour, averaging between 120 and 240 shows a year since 1974.
