Exp. 3/15/14SWEET PEDICURE $3 OFF Largo to study Kent Place issuesCommissioners agree to pay $150,000 for eight-month investigation By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Responding to a recent outcry from residents of Kent Place, the city of Largo will conduct an eight-month study to quantify the sanitary sewer overflows and odors that have been reported in the residential neighborhood. The study will take about eight months because city officials want to capture conditions in both the dry and rainy season, Assistant City Manager Michael Staffopoulos explained to commissioners during a work session Feb. 11. The study will cost between $75,000 and $150,000 and target three problems residents have identified: overflows in the levels of the sanitary sewer, recurring odors and the frequency with which city officials clean out the line in the neighborhood. Evidently, between what were hearing from the community versus what we have for records, we do have an information gap, Staffopoulos said. We need to do a study to try to determine more information as to whats going on out there. First, Staffopoulos proposed installing water level sensors and flow monitors on selected manholes to track the change in wastewater flows and elevations. According to citys current sewer model, overflows should not be occurring in a -year, 24-hour storm event, which means it would have to rain 8 inches or more within 24 hours, according to city documents. If overflows are occurring, the city needs to determine where, how and why, and that can only be properly assessed with a study, Staffopoulos said. Plan may balance EMS fundingThe Starkey ParkiesGroup provides information, support for Parkinsons diseasePhotos by JULIANA A. TORRESMembers of the Starkey Parkies support group, from left, Bob and Mary Etchello, Robin Hirschberg and Arlene Dawson talk during a group discussion Feb. 6 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys Emergency Medical Services is among the best in the nation. But that quality comes at a price that is getting harder and harder to afford. For years, staff has been looking for ways to cut costs without damaging response times and service. Prior studies and plans were rejected. Relationships between the county and the municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services have become strained. Still, something has to be done before the EMS millage rate reaches the cap and the reserve fund is depleted. Staffs most recent proposal comes from recommendations by consultant Fitch and Associates. Implementation of the recommended CARES model calls for reduced staffing of fire stations during nighttime hours when activity is at its lowest. CARES stands for Community-wide Alignment of Resources for Efficiency and Service. Fitch says using a CARES-2 could save Pinellas millions of dollars over time. Under the proposed new funding model, no change is recommended for Dunedin, East Lake, Gulfport, Madeira Beach, Oldsmar, Pinellas Suncoast, Safety Harbor, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island. Increased funding is proposed for Palm Harbor, Seminole and Tarpon Springs. Decreased funding is planned for Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg. The reductions would be phased in over three years. Staff estimates a savings of $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-2015. St. Petersburg takes the biggest hit with a reduction of more than $1 million over three years. Clearwaters funding would go down $669,690; Largo, $527,566; Pinellas Park, $504,789; and Lealman, $285,454. Tarpon Springs funding would increase by $381,531. Palm Harbor would receive $240,740 more. Seminole would get an increase of $143,945 in part to pay for service to Redington Beach and Redington Shores. Currently, the county pays for two positions per rescue truck 24 hours a day for 48 hours of funding. Under CARES, two positions per rescue truck would be funded for 14 hours a day plus one position on an engine for 10 hours for 38 hours of funding. The number of funded positions would go from 84 to 79.28. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said that staffing changes would not affect the countys average response time of 7 minutes, 30 seconds 90 percent of the time. Speaking at a Feb. 4 work session, MoellerCitywide scavenger hunt promotes family fun, local businesses A quest through Largo By BRIAN GOFF LARGO Was it the chance to win $300, or the opportunity to spend a day with the family? Whatever the reason, 34 teams of people showed up at the Highland Recreation Complex on Feb. 8 for the inaugural Family Scavenger Hunt. By the looks of the smiles on their faces after they finished, it was a successful event. The rules were simple. Teams had to visit the designated 12 businesses in the city, get a ticket to show they were there, fulfill a photo challenge and get back to the recreation center as quickly as possible. The winners would get $300, second place $200 and third place $100. Jennifer Baldock and her family, husband Christopher and 3-year-old son, Hayden, were quick off the mark and ultimately finished 22nd. They were out of the money, but that didnt seem to matter. It was definitely fun, and a lot of the photos made us do silly things, (they) were a challenge, she said. At McGill Plumbing, we had to pose with plungers, so we put them on Daddys head. At East Bay Car Wash, we had to pose with dirty washcloths, and we Yoga instructor Lisa Recchione demonstrates a stretch designed to open up the shoulders to the group, including in the front row from left, Joe Puzan of Largo and Betty and Al Harper of Pinellas Park.

TORRESLARGO The Feb. 6 meeting of the Starkey Parkies, a support group for those dealing with Parkinsons disease, began with a vocal exercise, not unlike ones professional actors and singers use to warm up, explained facilitator Ken Fradain. The circle repeated tricky syllables and complicated tongue twisters, each doing their best to enunciate and project the sounds. Speaking clearly and loudly is just one of the challenges those suffering from Parkinsons disease can face on a daily basis. Fortunately for me, I have not been affected that way yet, said Fradain, who acted as group facilitator for the first time that meeting.

Schulz won an award for showmanship.In good handsEvaluation of Largos urban forest completedLARGO As part of the U.S. Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Matching Grant Program, crews from Davey Resource Group have completed work to inventory and assess the condition of the city of Largos urban forest. A total of 12,049 trees along city rights-of-ways, parks and boundaries throughout Largo were evaluated through this program, according to a city press release. The health of Largos urban forest directly affects the health of the community. Trees turn carbon dioxide into much needed oxygen, helping to improve air, water and soil quality and provide very necessary shade. The city now has the resources to establish a systematic program for tree care as well as to more accurately estimate future monetary, staff and equipment commitments. Through use of the inventory and implementation of maintenance recommendations, public safety and the benefits trees provide to the community will be enhanced. Public trees, when properly maintained, return environmental, economic, and social benefits to the community, which far exceed the initial investments for planting, pruning, protection, and occasional removal. Largo named a Tree City for 25th yearLARGO The Arbor Day Foundation announced that Largo was named a Tree City USA community for its commitment to urban forestry. It is the 25th year Largo has earned this national honor from the Arbor Day Foundation, the nations largest nonprofit organization dedicated to planting trees. We all benefit when communities like Largo place a high priority on planting and caring for trees, one of our nations most beautiful resources, said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. Trees shade our homes and add beauty to our neighborhoods, and they also provide many environmental, economic and social benefits. We applaud Largos elected officials, volunteers and citizens for providing vital care for its urban forest. The Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service sponsors the Tree City USA program. Largo has met the four standards to become a Tree City USA community. Tree City USA communities must have a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, a community forestry program with annual expenditures of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

PARKIES, from page 1A4A Largo Leader, February 13, 2014washed Daddys face with them. He always gets the short end of the stick but he enjoyed it. Even though they finished 22nd out of 34 teams, Jennifer Baldock said the family will do it again next year and hopes it gets harder. Next year, they should involve more businesses, she said. That should make it harder. Everyone who took part today managed to get back in plenty of time, it was too easy. Some of the challenges werent so easy however. The UPS store in Largo required participants to burst every single bubble in a 12x12-inch piece of bubble wrap. You can bet the time it took to do that was an irritant to the teams who wanted to keep moving. At the Frame Factory, team members no matter how many had to pose behind a large, family-sized frame. For some teams, that meant squeezing in rather tightly. The Caswell family of Largo finished in 11th place. As they sat around at the post-hunt party eating hot dogs, they were already planning how they were going to approach next years event. We are a very competitive family. The Caswells are very competitive, said the father, Randy. Next year we are hoping to get a top-five finish. This year, he said it was all about the ebb and flow of getting it done. It wasnt so bad once we got going, he said. We have to get the flow going. I had five navigators; once we decided on one navigator then it got going the right way. Largo recreation planner Christina Heubel was the brains behind the event. She said it was conceived as a way to bring the community together. It was to get local businesses involved in the community and have people visit those businesses and get to know them and what they do, she said. It gets people involved in their community in a fun and memorable way. The businesses involved agreed. It is a wonderful event, said Mary Byrd, owner of the Frame Factory and Gallery. The more people we can expose to the arts, the happier Ill be. Im extremely happy with this whole event. It is a lot of fun, and I hope they do it again next year, even twice a year. Byrd said the event was all part of what makes a community come together. Weve been here for 40 years, since 1974. This is a win-win situation, I love to see things grow, she said. Over at McGill Plumbing, general manager Shane Wood was just as pleased with the scavenger hunt. I think it is a great idea, he said. I like it when the teams come in here, and they have to work together. It gets everyone involved in the community. Well definitely participate again next year. Rounding out the businesses which participated in the event were: The BB&T Bank on East Bay, Dolcinis Gelato, Golden Glow Medical Spa, Happys Home Centers, Main Street Chiropractic, Optical Factory & Showroom, Tijuana Flats and Toppers Creamery. Heubel said there will definitely be a second annual scavenger hunt, and it will likely expand to make it more difficult. We didnt expect everyone back here as quickly as they did, she said. We are pleased with the way things went; everyone is happy. It was great; it was a lot of fun. The team names of the winners were: first place, The Shark Attack; second place, The Ninja Turtles and third place, 3 Ladies and a Man.Photos by BRIAN GOFF Above, Jennifer, Christopher and 3-year-old Hayden Baldock pose inside a large frame at the Frame Factory as part of Largos Family Scavenger Hunt Feb. 8. At right, the Caswell family poses with their plungers and toilets at McGill Plumbing. QUEST, from page 1Asaid response time improvements are predicted for service to Tarpon Springs, Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Madeira Beach, St. Pete Beach and areas serviced by Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District. Response time decreases of a few seconds are possible in Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Oldsmar, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and St. Petersburg. County Administrator Bob LaSala is optimistic about the plan, estimating savings of $18 million to $20 million in the first three years, if you add in cost avoidance. In 10 years, savings could mount up to $58 million to $60 million, he said. LaSala said he reviewed the plan with mayors and city managers from 14 cities and four fire districts. Leaders from Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Oldsmar, Clearwater, Seminole, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island reportedly said they were prepared to recommend the changes. Weve been talking about this for a long, long time, said Commissioner Ken Welch. I hope we can bring it in for a landing. Moeller reported that CARES 2 does reduce overall response times by about 5 seconds, but said the increase should not affect the average of 7.5 minutes 90 percent of the time. Most calls currently are answered in about 4.5 minutes. LaSala said staff would work with the 18 providers of first responder services to create more efficiency. Well look to see if we can address the 5 seconds by how we assign calls throughout the system, he said.ObjectionsLealman Fire Chief Richard Graham believes the new plan will decrease the level of service. I understand it will save money, but what is a life worth? he asked. He disagrees with the Fitch studys assessment that the EMS system has excess capacity. He said the reserve capacity built into the system is needed to ensure response. In addition, he said, the plan shifts the costs of the system to the fire side. Graham expressed his dismay that county staff had not scheduled a private meeting with him to talk about the details. He wants to know exactly how the changes will affect Lealman. It is dj vu, said Commissioner Janet Long, referring to past discussions on EMS when the staff presentation differed from the view of the fire departments. Robert Polk, president of the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association, said, Its a never-ending dilemma, adding that his words were not intended to fuel a debate. One of his concerns is the plan to freeze costs after the end of three years of cost reductions. His bigger issue is taking units off the street. Something has to suffer, he said. He advocates more meetings and more discussion. He is concerned about the ability to respond to fires that involve injuries in the middle of the night with fewer resources. There is a cost in readiness, he said. We have to accept that. Despite, his concerns, Polk said he believed the latest plan is closer than ever to something all sides can support. He added that the countys fire chiefs had not yet met to discuss the recently released proposal. Who is getting money and who is not, thats a cloudy issue, he said. He agreed with Graham that individual meetings between fire departments and county staff were necessary for everyone to understand the effect of the proposed changes. LaSala said he planned to work with the decision makers for each of the 18 service providers not necessarily the fire chiefs. LaSala then left the room. This is not the first time weve been subject to this type of behavior, Polk said. He pointed out that a city manager was not a decision maker. Polk, who also is chief of Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District, said he was offended to be diminished and belittled at commission meetings. He talked about recent incidents that had taxed Pinellas Countys resources to the maximum. He said storms tax the system to absolute maximum. And you never know when theyre coming, he said. Hurricanes dont sneak up on us, but they tax our resources. He said due to the countys vulnerability when access to the mainland was lost when bridges were closed, it was important to be more self-sufficient than landlocked counties. LaSala returned to the meeting and apologized to Polk, saying he had not meant to demean you or others. Palm Harbor Fire Commissioner Norm Atherton said he believed the county had negotiated in good faith a deal that he would recommend to his board. However, he also had some concerns about certain aspects and the lack of communication. Communication is never perfect, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. But I pledge that each fire department will receive a presentation. Seel added that as of Feb. 2, she had served on the commission for 15 years. EMS and fire have been contentious issues, she said. Its been a journey these last 14 years for some of us here, Morroni said. Its upsetting that there is still a communication issue going on here. Commissioner Charlie Justice said it was difficult to make a decision when one side says EMS is subsidizing fire service and the other side says EMS is not paying for itself. The important thing is that were close, Commissioner Norm Roche said. EMS, from page 1Aaffects the muscles in their throats and causes problems with swallowing, and sometimes they cant speak loud enough. The Starkey Parkies is a grassroots group that meets at the Grand Villa on Starkey Road to provide a welcoming atmosphere of support, explained group leader Theo Betjemann. Many of the attendees came with a spouse or partner in their fight against the disease. One caregiver invited the group to the funeral for her mother, who had recently passed away of the disease. Aside from moral support, the monthly meetings are a forum to share exercises to forestall the effects of the disease, the latest medical tips and developments and stories that inspire each other to continue fighting. People need this kind of group, said Maria Portes of Largo, who has fought against the disease for almost 14 years. Honestly, its a very hard disease. I wish people would get educated about it. Portes was one of the initial organizers of the group, which first met in November. The organizers have been pleased by the positive response the group has had, evidenced even by the attendance of that first meeting. We got so many people. We couldnt believe it. It was overwhelming, Portes said. The original facilitator of the group, Marcy McCall, an author of a book on the disease, had to step down due to an unrelated illness. But the area set aside for the group at the Grand Villa was still filled with attendees during its most recent meeting. Portes said many people who dont experience Parkinsons disease firsthand still have a narrow view of it. They come to something like this (and) they think theyre going to see a room full of people shaking, but thats not what it is about, she said. The stiffness is my major complaint. Its hard. At my stage now, I have a lot of trouble walking sometimes. Even members of her own family dont completely understand. Once, when Portes was visiting with family about six months ago, she began to leave the room and found herself stopped. All of a sudden, I just couldnt walk. I just froze there, she said. Her brother asked her what was wrong. I said, Nothing Im frozen. He said, Why dont you put a sweater on? I was cracking up, Portes said. My brother, you have to get a little bit more educated about Parkinsons. The biggest challenge is how unpredictable the disease can be, she said. The medication sometimes just doesnt work as well as it should. I can be feeling fine now and 10 minutes from now, Ill be a mess, Portes said. Everybody always says, You look so good, but they dont know what we walk through. You have to walk in other peoples shoes. On the other side of the room where the group met, Bill Ohsa of Largo carried refreshments back to his seat and suddenly couldnt stop his hand from spilling the plastic cup of red juice. I get shaking and I cant stop, the retired construction worker explained as he recovered and began mopping up the floor. Arlene Dawson, sitting nearby, was unfazed by the spill. She lives at the Grand Villa, having given up her doublewide trailer in Clearwater, along with her independence, about three years ago, shortly after being diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. The ongoing fellowship and the information the group provides is important, she said. Her priority now is to make sure her brother, who lives in Ohio and was diagnosed with the disease before she was, also has a support group he can rely on. The ease and understanding that comes with socializing with others familiar with Parkinsons is key, explained Patty Nuytten of Largo, another organizer of the Starkey Parkies. You can get very isolated with Parkinsons. My voice is particularly affected, so I dont talk much on the phone. And its just hard to coordinate things, she said. You find yourself pretty much just staying at home if you dont do something like this. There tend to be two types of the disease. Nuytten is more affected by the stiff, rigid side of Parkinsons, as opposed to the shaky kind of Parkinsons, she said. She agreed that sudden onset of symptoms makes the disease particularly challenging. One minute, you could be fine and five minutes later, you can barely walk across the room, she said. During a socialization break, Anneliese Tedeschi of Pinellas Park sought out fellow group member Mike Mugharbel of Seminole. I noticed he walks without the walker now, she explained. Tedeschi had a fall recently and broke her neck. She has healed enough to no longer need the halo brace, but hasnt fully recovered. Now I cant get out of the wheelchair, she said. Since he got rid of his walker, I was trying to find out (how). Mugharbel said he tackled various kinds of exercise on his own to regain his mobility. Im proud of it, he said. You look like youre doing very well, Tedeschi commented. Staying active is particularly challenging to those suffering from Parkinsons, but its key to forestalling the progression of the disease, group moderators emphasized. In fact, the Feb. 6 meeting included a yoga demonstration designed to enhance mobility and stretch tense muscles. Bob Etchells of Largo said hikes and biking were his primary forms of exercise. Im not sure how safe that is, he said with a smile, explaining that the other bikers on the Pinellas Trail move a bit faster than he does. Etchells, a retired computer engineer, said the camaraderie and awareness of the latest developments in Parkinsons made the Starkey Parkies group useful. Hes also discovered a better doctor through recommendations of its members. Its inspiring, said Robin Hirschberg, who is relatively new to the supportive community, having only been diagnosed with Parkinsons in October. The members of the group are sometimes more knowledgeable about the disease than his own neurologist, Hirschberg said. Another attendee, who did not want to give his name, agreed: those who suffer from Parkinsons are able to recognize its symptoms in others, often before doctors do. Aside from encouraging its members, the group hopes to raise general awareness of the disease, said Betjemann. Parkies can continue to live a meaningful life through personal awareness, improved self-care, socialization and various therapies, she explained. All of this becomes worthy of celebration when, through support of each other and the acceptance and embrace by the mainstream community, we are able to create victories over daily challenges created by the disease. The group ended with a vocal exercise. As a group, the Starkey Parkies voiced healthy affirmations aloud. My intention is to maintain health and wellness for myself, they said together. I am grateful for the health I have now. Opportunities to reverse any and all symptoms always come my way. The group meets first Thursdays, 1:30 p.m., at the Grand Villa, 750 Starkey Road in Largo.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHealthy AgingA happy emotional outlook and sharp mental state are critical building blocks for overall good health in seniors. Physical health pales when a person suffers emotional distress and isolation, making them unable to enjoy life. In fact, emotional health and a sharp mind are critical for seniors when physical limitations prevail. Physical health can be maintained by exercising within your individual abilities, with your doctors consent. Exercise helps preserve muscle tone and bone density and can aid in balance and coordination. Daily exercise can be as simple as walking around the block or participating in a group exercise class at the local gym. Consuming a wellbalanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, and protein provides nutrients your body needs to function properly inside and out. Mental health is facilitated by challenging yourself every day. Challenges can include participating in new activities, playing games you never have before or merely extending your knowledge in one subject. Creativity is key in keeping your brain sharp and your senses focused. Emotional health becomes endangered as seniors face the loss of a spouse and other loved ones. Isolation can become prevalent due to physical limitations or the lack of desire to socialize. Anxiety and depression can affect seniors who worry about money matters, have minimal contact with others, or for those who suffer serious medical conditions. Emotional health depends largely on happiness, which is influenced by increased socialization and less isolation. Encourage seniors to join clubs, volunteer, or dine together. Daily activities give a sense of purpose, a feeling of value and create happier states of mindwhich is key in potentially avoiding the effects of stress, anxiety and depression. The primary goal of seniors is to maintain independent lives in their own homes. It is essential for seniors to understand that in order to achieve this goal they must learn how to adapt to some of these changes by pursuing healthy lifestyles that can, in turn, make independence possible well into their golden years. Comfort Keepers is a leader in in-home senior care to promote independent living. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, incidental transportation, laundry, recreational activities, personal care and technology products. 021314 KENT PLACE, from page 1ASecond, the city proposed installing odor loggers to measure the level of hydrogen sulfide gas being produced within the sewer line to determine if and where potential odors are occurring. The city would hire a consultant to install and continually monitor both types of sensors for accuracy during the study. Finally, Staffopoulos said the city would start measuring the amount of materials workers remove from the sewer line, which they do as a preventative measure every seven to 10 days. The city has kept up the practice for about a decade without analyzing the need for its frequency, he said. Kent Place residents have complained that the cleanings themselves are the source of much of the smells they endure and have questioned the need for them.Potentially, the city workers could back off the cleaning frequency, Staffopoulos said.We wont know until we have some quantitative data, he added. Commissioners will have to approve the study in a public hearing once staff determines its final scope and cost, though they agreed to the concept as presented. But not before Commissioner Woody Brown questioned whether or not the study was entirely necessary. Were going to spend $150,000 for a consultant to tell us what we know. Why not fix it, rather than spending the money and the time? he asked. The problem is its a flat system, and its not real effective. City engineer Leland Dicus said that the study would determine if the citys current model for the area was accurate. We need to do that flow metering and recalibrate the model there to be able to appropriately evaluate alternatives, he said. Without that model, we wont have the confidence to tell you, Yes, heres the size of pipe to put in, heres how much its going to cost and its going to reduce overflows. Mayor Pat Gerard voiced support for the citys proposal, despite the cost and time investment. The proposed study is similar to one that analyzed problems with the system in the Paradise Island community. We didnt want to spend the money on Paradise Island either, but what we got back was a solution, Gerard said. The money to pay for the study will come from citys sewer fund. Also discussed during the work session was the citys strategic plan for its fire rescue department, part of its periodic re-accreditation process. While complimenting Fire Chief Shelby Willis for the comprehensive scope of the document, commissioners bemoaned the potential loss of Emergency Medical Services funding from the county, as currently proposed in a new funding model.Commissioner Jaime Robinson asked that the city invite Bruce Moeller, director of the countys Public Safety Services, to give a presentation at an upcoming meeting, allowing at least everybody here to air all our feelings. Police beat Police beatLargo police investigate homicideLARGO Largo police are investigating the death of a 50-year-old woman as a homicide, after finding her body in a Largo home Feb. 6. The victim has been identified as Patricia King, police reported. Police were dispatched to 1008 10th Ave. NW, at 3:11 a.m. Feb. 6, where they found Kings body. She had suffered apparent trauma to her upper body, department spokesman Lt. Paul Amodeo stated in a release. There is no information to support that there is a threat to the community, he stated. The case was initially classified as suspicious death, but was ruled a homicide by that evening. Largo detectives are actively following up leads. Arrest made in cold-case murderCLEARWATER Clearwater police detectives arrested a man on Feb. 4 in a cold-case murder of a Clearwater woman from more than 27 years ago, police say. Janet L. Staschak was found dead in her apartment on S. Greenwood Avenue on Nov. 3, 1986. She had been strangled and sexually assaulted, police say. Detectives have now charged Stephen Manning Lamont, 57, with firstdegree murder in her slaying. Lamont now lives in Alabama, and Clearwater detectives traveled there to talk with and subsequently arrest him. No matter how old these cold cases are, our detectives never stop investigating them, said Clearwater Police Chief Anthony Holloway. Its important to us to find these killers so the families can have some kind of closure. Homicide detectives routinely revisit old cases with the goal of making an arrest. They often use new technology that was not available decades ago to see if they can find the killers. That is what happened in Lamonts case. DNA evidence taken from the scene was resubmitted and came back with a hit. Lamonts profile was in the system because he had served time in an Alabama prison for robbery. Of the 13 million DNA profiles in the databank, the only hit belonged to Lamont, the report said. Lamont had escaped from Holman Prison in Alabama in 1986 with four other inmates, the report said. During the recent police interview, he initially denied ever having been in Clearwater until detectives confronted him with his arrest in 1987 by Clearwater Police under an alias. At first, he denied knowing the victim, the report said, and then later he said he knew her but didnt know anything of her death. Lamont then talked of knowing the victim and dating her, then coming to her apartment and finding her dead, the report said. He said he altered the scene and moved her body and even drove her car to Tampa International Airport. Eventually during the interview, he admitted to detectives that he killed her. And, he said, the victim knew him as Keith Minchew, the alias he had used while he was an escapee. Lamont is being held at the Shelby County Jail in Alabama, pending extradition to Pinellas County. The Shelby County Sheriff, Chris Curry, and his detectives assisted in the investigation. Janet L. Staschak was 25 when she was killed in 1986. Stephen Lamont is in jail in Alabama, waiting extradition to Pinellas County.

Pinellas decides to keep land in Pasco for future water needs By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Majority ruled Feb. 4. Pinellas County will keep its land in Pasco County. It was a contentious decision made toward the end of an all-day meeting. After a staff presentation followed by a sometimes passionate debate, most commissioners remained opposed to selling more than 12,000 acres of land located in Pasco County to Pasco County. Commission Vice Chair Susan Latvala strongly supported selling Cross Bar and Al Bar ranches. She said it was the right thing to do. Commissioner Ken Welch also supports selling the land, calling it a home rule issue. He said the land had served its purpose. Commissioner Charlie Justice leaned in favor of selling, but wanted to know what the land was worth. He said since Pasco County wanted the land, it should pay for the appraisal. County staff estimated an appraisal cost of $20,000 to $30,000. Im willing to sell if its the right price, Justice said. Justice also wanted to know exactly how the county could spend the money, since the property belongs to the Utility Departments Enterprise Fund. Commissioner John Morroni said he understood the pros and cons. He said he was half-way there to considering selling at least one of the ranches. But the pit of my stomach is telling me not to sell, he said. He added that land values were down. Right now might not be the best time to get the best bang for our buck, he said. Commissioners Janet Long, Norm Roche and Commission Chair Karen Seel strongly opposed giving up the property. Their primary concern was ensuring that Pinellas had its own water supply in the future. Years down the road when the question is asked, who the hell let this happen, I dont want that to be the 2014 Board of County Commissioners, Roche said. Pinellas bought the 8,200-acre Cross Bar Ranch in 1976 and the adjoining 4,200-acre Al Bar Ranch in 1990. All 12,400 acres are located in central Pasco County. Utilities paid $11.1 million total for both parcels. Historically, Pinellas County has been dependent on outside sources for its drinking water with more than 50 percent of its supply coming from wellfields located in Hillsborough and Pasco counties. Water wars were common through the 1990s and unregulated pumping of water from the Florida Aquifer caused a number of environmental issues. Pinellas purchased Crossbar to help supply its water needs. Seventeen wellhead sites located on 6.41 acres began producing drinking water in 1980. The county sold the wells and water rights on Crossbar in the mid-1990s as part of a deal that created Tampa Bay Water. Pinellas also sold Tampa Bay Water its wellfields on the Eldridge Wilde property in 1998. In return, the Utilities Department received $140 million. Tampa Bay Water became a reality in 1998. The nonprofit utility supplies wholesale drinking water to Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. The utility uses a mix of groundwater, surface water and seawater to supply its member governments. As part of a 40-year agreement, Pinellas County cannot produce its own drinking water unless Tampa Bay Water fails to meet the long-term needs of the six member governments. The agreement also states that if for some reason Tampa Bay Water would cease to exist, which some officials say is highly unlikely, its assets would be divided among its members with each getting a portion of each asset.Back at the ranchesThe concept of selling the land is not new. Pinellas planned to sell the land to Florida Forever in 2008 to help meet the state-run programs goals to preserve, protect, restore and maintain land and water sources. The recession put an end to those plans. Meanwhile, Pinellas continued to take care of the land and invested in preserving the rare species that live there. Timber and straw production, cattle operations and other activities were developed to generate revenue. Prior to 2013, timber and straw production was not a moneymaking operation. But last year, Utilities turned a profit of $343,000 on timber alone. Some commissioners question the wisdom of selling the ranches when they are finally beginning to make money. One reason, according to those in favor of selling, is to raise money to pay for needed Utilities projects and reduce future rate increases for drinking water. Barbara Hoffman, chair of the Friends of Brooker Creek Preserve, supports the sale. She told commissioners that the money was needed at home. Its difficult to see money spent in Pasco County, she said. She said while preserving land was good, it doesnt help Brooker Creek. Budget cuts in recent years have resulted in reduced maintenance at the countys parks and preserves. Seel asked staff for a report on the needs at Brooker Creek. Staff pointed out that selling the land in Pasco wouldnt necessarily mean more money for parks and preserves since the money would go to the Utilities Enterprise Fund. Utilities outlined more than $31 million in capital projects in line for funding. Latvala argued that it was abundantly clear that Pinellas had no need to keep land in Pasco. That land costs us money and there is no access to our people, she said. Seel argued that the commission had to consider needs of the county in 50 to 75 years. We need to be conservative and not sell assets we might need, Seel said. Water is going to be the biggest issue globally in 50 years, she added.Pasco Countys offersPasco County set aside a portion of its next Penny for Pasco revenue to buy land it wants to preserve and use for environmentally friendly activities, such as hiking and camping. Pasco wants to buy Cross Bar and Al Bar ranches not just because they are a central piece to its environmental lands acquisition and management program, but also to ensure future Pinellas County commissions dont sell it to someone who might not be a good steward of the land. Commissioners discussed an offer from Pasco during a work session on Aug. 13 with the majority opposed. Soon after, they took a field trip to view the property. Pasco County made another bid for the ranches during the Jan. 28 regular commission meeting. The presentation, titled Opportunities for Regional Collaboration, included an offer to buy the land as well as an alternative for the counties to work together. The first offer was a fee simple scenario in which Pasco County would buy the land, continue what Pinellas County had started, as well as open the land to natural resource based recreation, such as hiking, fishing, biking, primitive camping and education activities. The second offer was an easement scenario in which Pinellas would continue to own the land and operate its agricultural operations. Pasco would acquire a conservation easement based on fair market value. Natural resources, including water, would be protected into perpetuity. Pinellas would remain in control of management and pay the costs and Pasco would provide oversight. While Pasco would like to own Cross Bar and Al Bar, that countys staff is working on 11 other projects all competing for Penny for Pasco funds. Pasco officials have said that if Pinellas does not accept its offers, the money will be spent on other projects. Latvala said Pinellas County needed to act now, not wait for an improving real estate market. Now is the only time or they will spend the money on something else, she said. Long said she understood why some wanted to sell the property, but agreed with those who dont want to sell. She said she had talked to the public after Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTYCross Bar and Al Bar ranches encompass more than 12,000 acres located in central Pasco County. The blue boxes on Cross Bar are wellfields owned by Tampa Bay Water. See LAND, page 7A

Libertarian Lucas Overby favors the state allowing medical marijuana and he supports gay marriage. speaking engagements and none had supported selling the land. Roche said he had heard the same. Justice said opinions of the people he talked to had been just the opposite. I agree with Commissioner Seel, Long said. The No. 1 issue globally is water. Today we sit here and think we have that solved. But we do not know what will happen in 25 or 50 years. Roche described the decision being made as a legacy vote. Yes it is, Morroni agreed. It is imperative to protect this option for future use, Roche added. After it was clear that the majority was in favor of keeping the land, Seel asked staff to look into what it would take to open the land up for recreational use. The ranches are not now open to the public. Pinellas has a deal with Pasco schools for students to take field trips to Cross Bar and use the education center, which cost Pinellas $1.3 million to construct. County Administrator Bob LaSala said he would ask staff to figure costs based on different levels of public access. Im interested in the public gaining more use, Seel said. The majority agreed.

When I gave up alcohol, I immediately felt better. My Saturdays are more fun, I save oodles of money in restaurants and I regularly receive good messages in the form of abundant energy from my liver, stomach, kidneys and brain. Im 53, and Im not getting any younger or any prettier so the last thing I need is alcohol slowing me down and drying me up. I also have a healthy fear of memory loss. Short and sweet: My brain needs oxygen, and alcohol starves the brain of oxygen. Hmm, guess Ive still got enough oxygen in my brain to figure that one out. Studies show that many people with memory loss have trouble getting oxygen to the brain. Im not going to starve my brain of oxygen. While drinking alcohol is widely accepted as a social norm, many people who drink are unaware of the biological impact that alcohol has on their bodies. Heres the skinny: When alcohol enters the blood stream, the red blood cells clump, which is what stops the bodys ability to absorb oxygen. The clumping blocks the small blood vessels so the tissues and organs cant receive oxygen from the blood. Without oxygen, cells, tissues and organs cant function properly. This impacts the tissues and organs in the body, causing them to experience a suffocation effect, as they are not receiving an adequate level of oxygen from the blood. Not only do I want all the brain power I can get, Im also not crazy about shriveled up skin either. Im just sayin. Here are some of my favorite reasons Im glad I dont drink alcohol anymore: 1. I like to be in control. Alcohol is designed to change the way you feel by altering your mood. It also has the ability to take away your common sense. There are countless examples of poor decisions made after even a few beers. Have you ever seen a really bad tattoo? Yeah. 2. My Saturdays are important to me. Life is short enough without losing half my Saturday (or any day after drinking) to a hangover. And yes, a headache counts as a hangover in my book. I have a family, pets, a house and a bunch of other things that Id like to be 100 percent present for. I cant do that if I feel like the north end of a southbound mule. 3. My health is a big priority. I know some people buy into the idea that a little alcohol is actually good for you, but I believe if something makes you feel like that mule the next day, it probably isnt. 4. I dont need it to have a good time. Since becoming a non-drinker, Ive become aware of a huge segment of adults who think that in order to have fun, alcohol must be involved. Have you ever noticed how many after work social activities involve drinking? 5. I feel better when I dont drink. The last point on my list is the main reason I dont drink. I feel better, healthier, more energetic, focused and more powerful when I dont drink. I have also found, when I am in a crowd of drinkers, it seriously disturbs their peace if Im not drinking. Therefore, Ive come up with a great remedy. I have what I call a Tequila Sunset, which consists of all the fixings of a Tequila Sunrise sans the alcohol. Its deliciously satisfying and keeps the inquiring minds calm, because we all know that drinkers dont like to drink alone. I chose to share my experience with you because it has made such a significant difference in both my mental and physical health. Im not getting any younger and as I zoom through my fifties with more energy than Ive had in a long time, I would love for you to have the same positive experience. I am sure there are those who are considering giving alcohol the old heave-ho for good and just need a little encouragement and there are those who wish they could stop but arent sure if they can. I quit for one month. That went well so I tried two and before I knew it I was alcohol-free for the entire year. I was seeking change in my overall health and Im delightfully happy with the results. Keeping my brain operating at its peak efficiency along with the benefit of improved vitality is why I no longer drink alcohol.A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

Everyone can make a difference, but its about deciding to make a difference, said company president Kris Hartland. Each month, a handful of nominees are recognized for their White Dove service either by employees of Trust Business Systems or by people in the community. When a person is nominated, the information about what they did and a photo of them is posted on Trusts Facebook page. Each month, one of the nominees is awarded a certificate and a $50 Visa gift card. In January, Jeff Meier from Mister Car Wash in Seminole was recognized for going above and beyond while washing Shelley Dignums Jeep. Jeff was meticulously attending to my vehicle apparently cleaning every crevice. It is inspiring to see people like Jeff who take pride in their work and seek to make customers happy, said Dignum, who lives in Indian Shores. In December, Kevin Taber, a manager at the Tyrone Walmart was recognized for his actions of helping Barbi Piersons 93-year-old grandmother with a complicated voucher for a television sold during a Black Friday event. He is an example of how we should treat each person we come in contact with, and Im humbled by his effort, said Pierson. Walmarts policy does not allow employees to accept monetary donations, so Taber has donated his $50 to Mildred Helms Elementary School in Largo. I hope this program continues to increase awareness in the community, and inspires people to give their best all the time, said Hartland. Anyone can nominate a person for a White Dove award on Trust Business Systems Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/trustbiz. The company selects a winner on the last Friday of the month. Above, January White Dove Service Award winner Jeff Meier, center, poses with Shelley Dignum, who nominated him, and Eric Theil, his manager at Seminole Mister Car Wash.

When I think of love, I think of my family. Like most of you, I love my family more than anything. The love parents have for their children is usually unconditional love. I know no matter what my kids do, I am going to love them. I may not agree or be happy with something they do, but I will always love them. Recently I read Gary Chapmans book, The 5 Love Languages of Children. The book is about how we as parents can best communicate love with our children once we know their primary love language. My girls know how much I love them, but according to Chapmans book some kids may not realize you love them if you are not filling what he calls in his book their love tank. He mentions five kinds of love in his book. They are physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service. To find out your childs love language there is a list of questions the child answers. This multiple-choice quiz can be found in the book or for free online at Chapmans website www.5lovelanguages.com. You also can try seeing how your child responds when you give the different kinds of love languages. You can try a specific love language for a week and see what happens. Chapman says when you are giving your child their primary love language you see a difference in how your child behaves. I was interested in seeing what my two girls love languages were. I also wanted to answer the quiz to find out what my love language and my husbands love language was. I will tell you my husband thought the questions were a little goofy. I still made him take the quiz. I wanted to make this a family event. It was interesting to see that my girls love languages were different. One daughters primary love language is quality of time. This means when I spend time with her she feels loved. My other daughters love language is acts of service. So when I do things for her like help her with her homework or help her pick out her clothes, she feels loved. Chapman says that we need to give our kids their primary love language, but they will benefit from having all the love languages. I also thought it was interesting how he says knowing your childs love language helps with discipline and that discipline shouldnt be something negative. It should be out of love that we discipline. I did notice that after making a conscious effort at trying to give each daughter love in their love language that it did make a difference. I know they both know I love them, but they are happier when I am filling their love tank with the love language they speak. I think knowing their love language just enhances my relationship with each one of my girls. So when you think about the ones you love this week, think about filling their love tanks. Valentines Day may not be about giving candy, flowers or cards, but just might be physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time or acts of service.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

Featured will be speakers with expertise in the issues of hunger in Pinellas, including Jerry Coleman, director of the Religious Community Services food bank; Steve Popper, founder of Meals of Hope; Lewis Hill, coordinator of the Pack-a-Sack 4 Kids program in Pinellas schools, and others. Caitlyn Peacock, project coordinator with Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger, will present the local hunger gap map. There will be informational displays and a panel discussion. The 90-minute forum is presented by a collaboration of five Episcopal churches in North Pinellas that are taking a bite out of hunger with an annual Meals of Hope food-packing event. Last spring, 160 volunteers from the churches, schools and other organizations packed 50,000 nutritious meals for the hungry; this April 5, the aim is to gather 200 volunteers to pack 80,000 meals at the RCS food bank. The Hunger Awareness Forum, with Meals of Hope samples, is free and open to the public. For information, call John Fleming at 4610218 or 599-8911, or email jffleming@tampabay.rr.com.

It causes permanent brain damage. Smokers have difficulty concentrating. They suffer loss of memory, and all intellectual performance is impaired, especially in speech and math. Also their personality and emotions are abnormally affected, causing dullness, lethargy, loss of sense of time, hostile suspiciousness, and a false sense of euphoria. THC, a toxic chemical in this drug rests mainly in the fat cells of the body, particularly the brain. Marijuana damages the lungs and respiratory system 10 times faster than nicotine cigarettes. It also damages DNA (genetic cells) and the reproductive system and can cause abnormal births, according to a study at Columbia University. A second Columbia University study found that a control group smoking a single marijuana cigarette every other day for a year had a white blood cell count that was 39 percent lower than normal, thus damaging the immune system and making the user more susceptible to infection and sickness. Five marijuana cigarettes a week have the same cancer causing capacity as 112 conventional cigarettes. One marijuana cigarette causes a 41 percent decrease in driving skills. Two cigarettes cause a 63 percent decrease. Often it is difficult to detect a person who is stoned, as opposed to being drunk with alcohol and having an obvious odor. And all too often marijuana and alcohol are consumed together, studies find. If we legalize marijuana or remove penalties for possession or use, hundreds of thousands of youth will be tempted to try it. It has been known to be a gateway drug to even more dangerous drugs also. For these and many other reasons, marijuana should not be legalized in Florida. Nancy Davis SeminolePreserve a part of historyEditor: I am currently doing the historical reviews of all of Clearwaters history since its beginnings. I volunteer in the historical research section at the main library. I also have all the Belleview Biltmore history from Henry Plants first beginning in Belleair. Many historical sites, homes and buildings built as far back as the mid 1800s have been renovated, turned down but more importantly moved I think saving part of the Belleview Biltmore could be done as a win-win situation as so much of it has deteriorated. The historic Plumb house was moved and is a historical museum. It has vintage furniture, artifacts and a short video of its history. Recently, they moved the Turner House to Heritage Village. My suggestion: Donate and move the most historic part of the Biltmore to Heritage Village, where it can be restored to its original look. Perhaps it can be similar to the fabulous one at the University of Tampas museum. Change the code to residential with more single homes and townhouses to save green space and traffic issues. It is a win for the Belleview Biltmore because part of it will be preserved and visited for years to come. It is a win for our town because other important issues can be addressed and we will start being able to collect much needed tax money. Just a thought of mine while looking at hundreds of historic sites at the library. Many people have used clever solutions to preserve at least a part of history. Perhaps the town of Belleair can preserve the soul of Belleair while moving forward, which is always hard. Roma Allen BelleairShedding light on rights of rentersEditor: In a letter Why unincorporated, Dec. 26, the correspondent states the property I live on probably is not taxed. Well, I only rent here so it is not my fault I do not pay property taxes, Nothing could be further from the truth. When the owners of rental property set the rent they include the property tax in their calculation of how much to charge. Thus, in a very real sense the renter is the only one who really pays the tax on rental property, and the owner of the rental property is no more than a tax collector. Many of our founding fathers subscribed to the mythic idea that people who dont pay taxes shouldnt be given the vote, and since renters dont pay taxes they shouldnt be given the right to vote. The introduction to the article For Wider Suffrage (The Annals of America, Volume 4, page 640) describes the situation better than I ever could. The first state constitutions limited the suffrage to property holders. By the first decade of the 19th century, when those early constitutions came under review, there existed a new class of Americans, who did not own land, but who nevertheless felt a vital interest in government and were ready to press for the right to vote. Men like John Adams, Joseph Story, Daniel Webster, James Madison and James Monroe defended the status quo: They foresaw a society divided along economic lines, rent by conflict between rich and poor, and they feared that extension of suffrage would provide the masses with a political weapon with which to attack the rights of property. Liberals denied that the masses had any desire for class conflicts The attitudes and liberals and conservatives havent changed very much since then. The fears and phobias of our founding fathers led to some strange ideas on who should vote. Consider the letter On the Importance of Property for the Suffrage by John Adams, which is an answer to a letter from James Sullivan. The Annals of America, Volume 2, pages 422-423, includes the statement: Is it not equally true that men in general, in every society, who are wholly destitute of property are too little acquainted with public affairs to form a right judgment and too dependent upon other men to have a will of their own. And, this from the same letter, even more absurdly: why exclude women? You will say because their delicacy renders them unfit for practice and experience in the great businesses of life and the hardy enterprises of war, as well as the arduous cares of state. One can only wonder what the authors of stuff like that would have thought of Golda Meir, Indira Ghandi and Margaret Thatcher. I admit that I do not admire our founding fathers as much as others do, e.g., Justice Scalia. In this matter I stand with Benjamin Franklin who in a speech to the constitutional convention wrote I cannot help expressing a wish that every member doubt a little of his own infallibility. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 163. I also stand with George Washington who wrote, I do not think we are more inspired, have more wisdom or possess more virtue than those who will come after us. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 238. Palmer O. Hanson Jr. Largo Hes finally facing up to FacebookA week ago the Internet company, Facebook, marked its 10-year anniversary. Its a major success story about a college student named Mark Zuckerberg who conceived an idea, put it to work in his dorm room, and now is worth more money than most Central American nations. The idea behind Facebook was to help friends and family stay in touch. Today half the world, plus the population of several small planets, swap messages on Facebook. Most of the messages possess the intrinsic value of a rabbit sneeze, but the same thing might be said of the Internets other social networking entities such as Twitter, You Tube and email. No harm need result, and many users of Facebook gradually discover as they devote 10 or 15 hours a day to scrolling that they now have a purpose in life. I envy them. For the past few years Ive had a Facebook page, but Ive made the mistake of not really learning how the dadblamed system works. When Ive dipped my toes into the mix by sending or replying to messages wafted my way, my efforts have disappeared into the void. I end up not knowing if anyone received what I sent, or (even less likely) that they gave a hoot that I tried to get in touch with them. This includes instances in which I asked the addressee to get in touch with me by phone or by email, so that we could converse, so to speak, like two rational humans instead of furnishing our private thoughts to be read by dozens or hundreds of alleged Facebook friends, who might or might not remember who we are, or could care less. My connectivity batting average has been mighty low, but Ive enjoyed and appreciated those few persons who have responded. By now Ive had to admit that I may not be destined to be a successful social networker. Such a person, from what I can tell, emerges from the womb wearing a smile and attempting to shake hands with his/her mother, father, the doctor and all the nurses in the delivery room. He has a built-in knack for building friendships, and has a need to be in touch with as many persons as possible. As a Facebook fan, he wants to know and be known, and to share his thoughts and experiences no matter how pedestrian. But I could be wrong. Or half-wrong. On the opposite end of the Facebook spectrum could be persons who are shy, introverted, lacking social skills, and desperate to establish friendships, including the phony ones that can thrive even for a short time on Facebook. Have the professional researchers ever made an attempt to find and describe a typical Facebook user? If so, please let me know what was learned. I fall somewhere between the two extremes Ive listed above. I enjoy meeting and knowing people, but not so much that I reach out very much to them. I value conversation, but not with certified looneys. As I scroll through Facebooks entries, I sense that the soup du jour for most of the exchanges is at the level of superficial backyard gossip rather than the stating of deep concerns on matters of universal importance. And thats to be expected. After all, who would want to reveal her/his innermost feelings to a gallery of viewers many of whom, if she met them face to face, wouldnt know her from Adams off ox? Still, Facebook obviously is powerful and useful. As I begin writing this column, the networks are telling of a young woman, an Olympian speed skater, whose family will be with her in Sochi only because Facebook viewers read about the familys need for the funds that would make their trip possible. The word went out, and the donations came in. Facebook indeed has wings. Not too many years ago humans communicated by means of smoke signals, drums and carrier pigeons. Along came the U.S. mail, pony express and telegraph, followed by the telephone, wireless Morse code transmissions and voice radio. Not long thereafter society was graced with television, the computer, fax machines, the Internet and its stepchildren email, Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, and Instagram. Im sure Ive missed a few citations. Each of these inventions helped to shrink the world and bring its inmates closer, along with the question Just how close to people do I need or want to be? Also, Along with all this newfound intimacy, are we any wiser, happier or more loving? Facebook can help us answer these questions, at least for those participants who care enough to ask them.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Retirement: challenges and advantagesIts been more than three years since I retired. I believed at the time that living by calendar schedules, fighting commuter traffic and fending off lifes challenges was behind me. I liked being a Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. I feel privileged to again be granted an occasional 15 inches or so of editorial page space to report on or vent on topics dear to my heart. Modern senior citizens are unlike those of decades ago who often spent their remaining years in back yards or front porches waiting to die. Todays older Americans are more active, more involved, and certainly more cerebral than those of preceding generations. Often times we travel, perform volunteer work or merely track the adventures of Jerry Springer or Steve Wilkos and wonder where they find those people that appear on their shows. Thanks to modern electronics we keep up on current events through newspapers, television, and smart phones that do practically everything but brew the morning coffee. My step granddaughter knows all about contemporary electronics. She is the go-to person in the family when our gadgets refuse to work. But I have grown to absolutely abhor automated telephone systems that banks, credit card and insurance companies employ. Patience is not one of my virtues. Dealing with electronic voice commands that demand pushing buttons to answer questions instead of talking to real people is challenging and frustrating. Just recently I threatened an electronic voice with something that would be impossible to accomplish without being a contortionist. The metallic response: Thank you, I will transfer you to a representative. I sometimes wonder how my mother who was in her late 80s and legally blind overcame the obstacles of modern survival.Then there are the doctor visits where nurses and office workers often affectionately address seniors as honey and sweetheart. Many of us resent that. Last month my wife had to undergo a colonoscopy. The doctor actually presented us with before and after color pictures of the procedure. I wondered aloud if I should have them enlarged to frame and hang over the living room sofa. And why would a doctor specialize in that sort of thing, anyway?Being a senior citizen does have its privileges. We get modest discounts at restaurants and stores. My days of flashing press credentials are over. I now offer an AARP card. People seem to be more courteous to older folks. Last year we visited New York City and I was astonished over how many young people offered me a subway seat. I declined each time, proving instead that I was wholly capable of hanging on to a stanchion pole without being catapulted through the entire length of the train as it roared into the 42nd Street station. As age advances we find that accomplishing once-routine chores has become slightly difficult. Young women in skimpy clothing are less interesting. Mowing a lawn is challenging on hot summer days. We suffer from aches and pains. We forget easily and actually obey traffic laws. I am fortunate to have a wonderful wife and an extended family. I still go to the gym three times a week. We travel. Im reasonably healthy and still set goals for the future. There arent too many things I would change if I could rewind my life. Perhaps I would practice patience, listen more to what people have to say, accept human idiosyncrasies, and put my mind in gear before starting my mouth.As for the good old days ... theyre just beginning.

Alex Silversmiths 442-7333011614SILVER & 021314B Sanborn Fire Insurance maps can answer burning questionsWe all know the value of using maps in our genealogy research. They help to locate our ancestors on the ground where they lived and worked, and thus go a long way in helping us more fully appreciate the lives they led. There is one type of map that is very helpful in this pursuit because it gives us such amazing detail, but which may not be in our awareness as much as the familiar road map or plat map is. That is the Sanborn insurance map collection. Those maps were originally created to aid in estimating fire insurance liabilities, and as such, insurance underwriters used the maps to determine risks and establish premiums. You can see from this use the reason for the detail that was provided. As a side benefit, they provide an insight to American urbanization that is typically not found in other types of maps. Therein lies their value to genealogists. The Sanborn Company, founded by a surveyor from Somerville, Mass., named Daniel Sanborn, began making these maps in 1867. In time his firm became the largest and most successful American map company. The company headquarters was in Pelham, N.Y., but had regional offices in other large cities across the county. It had a host of surveyors it used to record the location, shape, and other relevant details about buildings in all major urbanized areas throughout the country. In addition, it was surprising how many small communities also were the subject of Sanborn maps. The firm issued maps primarily between the late 1870s and the early 1960s for about 12,000 American cities and towns. Some areas had multiple editions produced, and even communities with as few as a couple of hundred people had maps made for them. The Sanborn maps themselves were produced on 21-inch by 25-inch sheets of paper and bound in volumes. They were relatively large scale showing 50 feet on the ground to 1 inch on the map. Updates were pasted into the volumes until completely new editions were created. The maps included text or abbreviations to describe the purpose of the buildings, identifying them as dwellings, factories, businesses, etc. Each map typically covered a four to six block area, and included an index of streets and addresses, and special indexes for churches, schools, businesses, and such as needed. Because of their intended use, many details were provided to include outlines of each building and outbuilding, window and door locations, sidewalk widths, property boundaries, fire walls, natural features, railroad corridors, building use (sometimes even particular room use), composition of building materials, existence of sprinkler systems, locations of fire hydrants, location of water and gas mains, and more Their use to genealogists can be significant. We can make use of all that detail to learn about the structures our ancestors lived and worked in. Because of their detail, we can use them to determine which new house numbers correspond to particular old dwellings. We also can create a list of organizations and businesses in the area that may have been used by an ancestor. Such organizations may include churches, schools, laundries, groceries, etc. By researching those organizations, we may uncover new evidence and clues regarding a familys past. If used in combination with a city directory, we can develop an informative sense of the neighborhood in which our ancestor lived. Today Sanborn maps are found primarily in the archives and special collections of town halls and public and university libraries, some of which are on line. Cyndis List is a good place to look for sites (cyndis list.com), and the Library of Congress map collection lists thousands of maps where over 6,000 are online (www.loc.gov/rr/geogmap/sanborn). Another good reference is Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San born_Maps), which lists Sanborn map collections by city and state, identifying many, which are digitized and online. If you are at a stage in your genealogy research where you want maps to help visualize aspects of your ancestors lives, dont overlook the value of Sanborn maps. They are a captivating reference to explore, and once you start to use them, you may find yourself drawn into the story they tell, whether they directly relate to one of your ancestors or not.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist and past president of the Pinellas Genealogy Society.

Tri-paw sweetheartCongratulations to Mila, a three-legged pit bull mix, who is Februarys Pet of the Month photo contest winner. Her human mom, Inga Martinez, adopted her from Pinellas County Animal Services, where she volunteers. Mila is now 2 years old and was adopted a year ago on Halloween. Even though she only has three legs, she still runs just as fast or faster than her four-legged buddies. Mila is a very athletic and fun dog. She was picked up as a stray with several old breaks in her front leg that had grown back wrong, so the leg had to be amputated, Martinez said. After the amputation, she spent 10 days in a wonderful foster home, and a few days later, Martinez adopted her. Mila loves her new home, where she also has an 11-year-old shepherd mix doggy brother, Roxy. They have a blast playing together, riding in the car and going for walks. Martinez said that after spending time with Mila, she has a pretty good idea how she got the breaks in her leg. The way Mila reacts to sticks, empty paper towel rolls, brooms, or anything that looks like a bat makes Martinez suspect that she was beaten. I make sure she never sees any objects that look anything like what could be used as a bat. I will make sure she never has to be afraid again, Martinez said. As Pet of the Month winner, Mila has won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

A healthy immune system is very important; many infections and diseases can be prevented, or made better, by a healthy and active immune system. More is not always better though, for other diseases occur when the immune system is too strong. The white blood cells and antibodies are the armies of the immune system, attacking invading bacteria, viruses and other organisms. The antibodies, and some white blood cells, recognize and attach to foreign invaders, directing the white blood cells to attack and destroy the bad germs. The antibodies are very specific; they need to target the causes of infection while avoiding the actual hosts own body. If the immune system is not strong enough, foreign organisms can come and cause disease. Bacteria can cause kennel cough, viruses can cause parvovirus, feline leukemia virus, or rabies, yeast can cause ear infections and fungus can lead to pneumonia, just to name a very few possible problems. Our pets bodies, and our own, are constantly being assaulted by foreign invaders determined to cause illness. But like many things in nature, there must be moderation with the strength and power of the immune system; an overactive immune system causes problems as well. If the antibodies and white blood cells react to normal substances, such as pollens or proteins in food, it can lead to severe skin allergies or asthma in the lungs. An overreaction to an insect sting can cause hives, facial swelling, or even anaphylaxis, where the throat swells shut. Even worse is when the immune system becomes confused and begins to attack the dogs or cats own body parts. If the immune system attacks the cartilage, it can lead to a rheumatoid arthritis. If it attacks the red blood cells, which carry oxygen, it can cause a spontaneous lifethreatening anemia (known as an auto-immune hemolytic anemia.) Sometimes the immune system attacks platelets, which allow the blood to clot, and cause spontaneous bleeding. The immune system can also attack the skin, causing horrible flesh-eating rashes called pemphigus. The controversy comes with regards to vaccines. Vaccines stimulate the immune system by helping it to practice fighting certain germs. The vaccine against parvo-virus allows the immune system to become and stay good at fighting this common disease, which leads to potentially fatal bloody vomiting and diarrhea. It is a very serious disease and absolutely needs to be prevented. At the same time, however, we need to be careful not to over-stimulate the immune system and cause other problems. The pendulum has swung back and forth on how often and how many vaccines to give our pets. Most universities now recommend against the vaccinate to everything every year protocol that was common a decade ago. At the same time, avoiding vaccines altogether has led to an increase in preventable diseases in people, and these pet infections still occur with frightening regularity. The answer lies somewhere in the middle and is a topic for discussion with your pets vet. Moderation is never easy; the middle ground is always filled with complicated grays instead of the easy black and whites. Keeping our pets healthy is important, and to do so we need to cross into that moderation space.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www .LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Six high schools Boca Ciega, Gibbs, Lakewood, Largo, Northeast and St. Petersburg are using the peer-to-peer mentoring model to help younger students navigate the high school experience. Mentors are a critical component to ensuring student success, said Michael A. Grego in a press release. Grego is superintendent of Pinellas County Schools. The guidance and insight offered by peer mentors is especially valuable to students, who receive support from people who can really relate to them. The Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program matches high school sophomores, juniors and seniors with freshmen. The program, in alignment with the districts strategic plan, is intended to give freshmen and some sophomores the skills and tools they need to succeed in high school. Peer mentors share their own experiences to help students learn about topics ranging from school rules and culture to study habits and course selection. The program also offers students in upper grades the opportunity to hone leadership and communication skills while earning volunteer hours applicable to Bright Futures Scholarships or other volunteer hour requirements. Alexis Franco, a sophomore at Largo High School became a peer mentor through her role in Largo Leaders, a student advisory group that meets regularly with school Principal Brad Finkbiner to discuss school improvement. Franco mentors a ninth-grader. We talk about what classes she struggles in and I talk to her about my experiences my freshman year and how I found solutions with the problems I had, Franco said. Being a mentor, Franco said, has helped her come out of her shell and become a better listener. And her mentee benefits from having a new friend who can help guide her through new experiences, she said.Business partner award finalists namedLARGO At the recent Business Partner of the Year Reception at the Stavros Institute in Largo, nine organizations were named as finalists for the 2014 Business Partner of the Year, presented by the Pinellas Education Foundation and Pinellas County Schools.

It was a very tough decision because of the great candidates who interviewed, said Brad Finkbiner, Largo High School principal. Marcus stood out because of his loyalty to the program and because he wants the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of his high school coach. I am confident he will continue the great legacy of Packer football. Paschal met with the schools football team for the first time Feb. 7. I am extremely happy with the chance to coach my former team, Paschal said. I look forward to meeting the team and continuing the tradition that Coach Rick Rodriguez started. Largo High has won 10 straight district titles, and I intend to continue the streak. Paschal is replacing Rodriguez, Largo High Schools football coach for the last 14 seasons. Coach Marcus Paschal will be a great fit to lead Largo High School Football scholar athletes, Rodriguez said. A Largo alumnus, Marcus was a standout student athlete during his time as a Packer.

PETERSBURG The Rowdies named Perry Van Der Beck general manager of the St. Petersburg-based North American Soccer League franchise. A captain of the 1980 United States Olympic soccer team and 1984 U.S. Soccer Player of the Year, Van Der Beck began his professional career with the Rowdies in 1978, when he was the first player in NASL history to be drafted out of high school. He has held leadership positions with the Tampa Bay Mutiny and the Tampa Bay Terror, and recently served as the executive vice president, technical director and director of player development for the Rowdies. Perry is the perfect man to lead the Rowdies into this new era, said club owner and chairman Bill Edwards. His personal history with the team, along with his passion, vision and proven track record at developing young talent, will help him build a perennial winner here in Tampa Bay. Together we will do great things for the club and our community. I am thrilled to have this opportunity, said Van Der Beck. The Rowdies organization has held a special place in my heart for the last 35 years, and were blessed with the most boisterous, enthusiastic fans in all of NASL. We captured the Soccer Bowl Championship in 2012, and my entire staff is focused on returning the championship trophy to Tampa Bay where it belongs. I look forward to helping Bill Edwards create not just the best on-field soccer team, but the best fan experience anywhere in the country. Van Der Beck has earned industry-wide acclaim as one of the premier developers of new soccer talent. From 1988 to 1994, Van Der Beck was a star player and assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Rowdies, and also made 23 appearances for the U.S. National Team. Among his many individual awards are 1984 U.S. Player of the Year and captain of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. During the 2003-04 season, Van Der Beck was a staff coach with the Adidas Elite Soccer Program, which identifies the nations best high school players and coaches them in a weeklong training program. From 2004 to 2006, he was head coach and technical director of the Olympic Development Program for the Super Y League, a National Youth League. The Rowdies were the first professional sports franchise in the area and remain one of the most recognizable and well-loved brands in soccer. Originally established in 1975, the team won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship in its inaugural year and created a unique, entertaining and memorable franchise with the Fannies,Rowdies and unforgettable Kick in the Grass theme song. In 2008, a group of investors announced the purchase of rights to a professional soccer franchise and the newly established team began play in 2010.

Working as assistant engineer at Abbey Road Studios, Parsons first emerged in the industry working on the Beatles LP Abbey Road. He went on to engineer projects for Paul McCartney, The Hollies and Pink Floyd. Then, in 1975, Parsons partnered with singer Eric Woolfson to create The Alan Parsons Project. All in the familyAccording to the artists website, Parsons was born into a family with longstanding connections to the entertainment industry. His family tree includes Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree, his great-grandfather. Tree was a well-known English actor and theater manager. Tree founded the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1904. His wife, actress Helen Maud Holt, often joined him on the stage and also assisted him with theater management. Trees daughter, Viola, followed in her fathers footsteps becoming an actress, singer, playwright and author. She appeared often with her fathers company at His Majestys Theatre. Later she appeared in opera, variety, straight theater and film. She married Alan Leonard Romaine Parsons with whom she had several children, including Alan Parsons father, Denys Parsons, who worked in the field of scientific research and invention before becoming a film-maker and, later, the press officer for the British Library. Denys was an accomplished pianist and flautist as well as the author of many books. Parsons mother also was an actress, as well as a professional folk singer and harpist. Other relatives in the entertainment business include the late Oliver Reed, film actor, and David Tree, film and stage actor.Abbey Road StudiosAlan Parsons landed a job at Abbey Road Studios when he was 19. His adventure in the world of sound recording began there, working as an assistant engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles. Qualifying as a fully-fledged recording engineer, Parsons went on to work with Paul McCartney and The Hollies among many others. Still, it was his contribution as engineer on Pink Floyds classic Dark Side Of The Moon that really earned him industry attention. He soon found himself producing singles such as Pilots Magic, John Miles Highfly and Music, and Steve Harleys Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me). Parsons also produced the hugely successful Year Of The Cat album with Al Stewart and two albums Photo courtesy of RUTH ECKERD HALLAbove, Alan Parsons plays Ruth Eckerd Hall Feb. 15 as part of the venues Rock Symphony Concert series. Above right, Jon Anderson will open the concert.with American progressive rock band Ambrosia.Alan Parsons ProjectIn 1975, Parsons met Eric Woolfson. Woolfson became his manager and the two joined forces to establish The Alan Parsons Project. The APPs debut album, Tales Of Mystery And Imagination, offered musical interpretations of works by Edgar Allan Poe. The album paved the way for a signing to Clive Davis newly launched Arista label and, in turn, a string of hit albums including I Robot (1977), Pyramid (1978), The Turn of a Friendly Card (1980), Eye in the Sky (1982), Ammonia Avenue (1984), Vulture Culture (1985), Stereotomy (1986) and Gaudi (1987). Since the breakup of the band, Parsons has released a string of solo albums including Try Anything Once, 1993; On Air, 1986; The Time Machine, 1999; and A Valid Path, 2004. Though APP recorded 10 albums between 1975 and 1987, Parsons and his entourage never played any concerts. Only after the release of his first solo album did he feel compelled to start touring. The new creative team convinced me I belonged on the stage, Parsons said in a 2006 interview with Tampa Bay Newspapers. The decision was at least in part driven by business. Parsons said what prompted him to start playing concerts was the need to give the album we had at the time Try Anything Once the best chance at commercial success. Fans savored the opportunity to hear both new material and works from Parsons vast APP catalogue. The avid enthusiasm of his audiences still surprises him. It never ceases to amaze me, people keep coming back, Parsons said. He said he enjoys visiting and performing at new places. Though touring seems like a second career for a man who spent so much of his time in the recording studio, Parsons clearly enjoys the interaction with the fans. Its something you dont get in the studio, he said.Yes vocalist Anderson to open the showBefore Parsons performs, Jon Anderson will take the stage, performing a selection of Yes classics such as Roundabout, Ive Seen All Good People, Long Distance Runaround and more. Anderson is one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock. The lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes, Anderson helped forge a series of epics produced by Yes such as Close to the Edge, Awaken and The Gates of Delirium. He co-authored the groups biggest hits, including Ive Seen All Good People, Roundabout and Owner Of A Lonely Heart. Born in Lancashire, England, in 1944, Andersons early career in music included a stint with The Warriors from 1962 through 1967. After leaving the band, he released two solo singles in 1968 under the pseudonym Hans Christian Anderson, and then briefly sang for the band The Gun. In March 1968, Anderson met bassist Chris Squire and joined him in a group called Mabel Greers Toyshop, which included guitarist Peter Banks. A year later, drummer Bill Bruford and keyboardist Tony Kaye would join them in the first incarnation of Yes.Photo courtesy of GLASS ONYON PUBLICITYBatiste, Stay Human to play Straz CenterTAMPA Jon Batiste and Stay Human will perform Tuesday, Feb. 18, 8 p.m., in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N.

It is a timeless theme in modern storytelling, dating back to Shakespeares star-crossed lovers, but one that remains urgently current because it serves as a rite of passage for everyone in every generation. Endless Love stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde in the story of Jade Butterfield and David Elliot, a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. Although separated by class boundaries, their gravitational pull is undeniable and unstoppable. During the months following their high school graduation, Jade, a sheltered young woman with a limitless future, becomes enthralled with David, a workingclass boy with a troubled past who in turn falls head over heels for her. Their romance collides with Jades controlling fathers attempts to steer her clear of David, while her mother encourages the relationship to thrive and his father advises clear-eyed caution. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, two young lovers will defy logic and allow their allconsuming passion to determine their future together.The following will open in limited release.

PETERSBURG Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh, a special multi-media, private artifact exhibition, is on display through April 27 at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S. FHM is one of three U.S. cities to host the exhibition. Prior to its arrival in the Tampa Bay area, it visited Chicago and New York. After its run at FHM, the collection will return to Israel. Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh is not a traveling exhibition but a collection of personal items thats likely never to be seen together again. Entrusted to organizers by Seneshs nephews, the exhibition includes a wide-range of personal artifacts including her diary, a newspaper she published with her brother, and a collection of personal notebooks and photographs. Senesh is widely known as the author of Walking to Caesarea, her 1942 poem that was set to music in 1945 and is largely considered the virtual second anthem for the state of Israel. Recently performed by Regina Spektor at a concert in Israel this past August, it was also prominently featured in the movie Schindlers List. Organized by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City, the 2,500-square-foot exhibition also includes audio/visual displays by Roberta Grossman, the award-winning director of Blessed is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh. We could not be more thrilled that St. Pete is one of three cities to receive this very important chronicle of one of the Holocausts most respected heroes, said Elizabeth Gelman, director of the Florida Holocaust Museum. A strong, resourceful, courageous woman, her story continues to inspire people across the globe. We expect the exhibition to draw visitors from across the state of Florida.About Hannah Senesh There are people whose glorious memory continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living these lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way. Senesh wrote these words in a letter to her mothers family in Dombvr, Hungary, upon the death of her great-aunt Betti Mama, in September 1940. Senesh, a young woman who took part in a secret British mission so that she might also help Jews in Europe, was one of those people. She also was the talented poet who wrote those words that would, along with her diary, be read by millions of people around the world. Seneshs life was short but her memory continues to impact millions. Senesh was born on July 17, 1921, into a Hungarian-Jewish middle class family. She went to a private Protestant secondary school where she was one of a small number of Jewish students. While she excelled there, she also eventually encountered institutionalized anti-Semitism. Her response was to become an ardent Zionist intent on settling in Palestine. She left Budapest for Palestine in September 1939, two weeks after Germanys invasion of Poland. After completing two years of studies at the Agricultural School for Young Women in Nahalal, she joined the newly organized kibbutz, Sedot Yam. In the summer of 1943, wanting to help in the effort to defeat the Nazis and to do something for the Jewish remnant in Europe, Hannah accepted an invitation to join a unit being trained to parachute into occupied Europe. There, she and the other Palestinian-Jewish volunteers would carry out a double mission. For the British, she would help set up escape routes for downed Allied aircrews who had evaded capture; for the Haganah the Palestinian Jewish underground army she would organize Jews and help them to escape. Senesh and four colleagues parachuted into Yugoslavia in March 1944. She crossed into Hungary in early June, but was immediately captured by the Hungarian authorities. She was imprisoned for six months and was brutally interrogated. While in prison, she taught her fellow prisoners Hebrew and inspired them with stories of life in Palestine. Her mother was arrested in an attempt to extract information from her, but Senesh refused to give her captors the information they sought. She was tried for treason, and executed by firing squad on Nov. 7, 1944, at the age of 23. Her remains were moved to Israel in 1950, and she is now buried in the section of Israels national military cemetery dedicated to the parachutists. Her mother and brother survived the war. Highlights of the exhibition The exhibit starts in cosmopolitan Budapest of the 1920s and 1930s, exploring Seneshs home life, education, and religious beliefs as part of a bourgeois Jewish family. It shows how her priorities changed in 1938 and 1939 upon facing anti-Semitism, and how she became a Zionist. The exhibition follows Senesh to the Agricultural School of Young Women in Nahalal and portrays her physical and spiritual life there and at Kibbutz Sedot Yam through the use of her own words, including the text of her famous 1942 poem Halikha LKesariya (A Walk to Caesarea), known worldwide as Eli, Eli. This short Hebrew poem was set to music in 1945, and has since become a virtual second anthem in Israel. Seneshs mission, imprisonment, trial and execution are narrated through the words of her acquaintances, family, and friends who were witness to these tragic events. The exhibition concludes with a section describing Hannahs legacy. Items featured in the exhibition include: An edition of Kis Szenesek Lapja (Newspaper of the Little Seneshes), produced in 1929 by Senesh and her brother Giora). Readers paid for the paper with chocolates. Seneshs Hungarian passport with its visa to Palestine. The portable typewriter Senesh brought with her to Palestine along with letters she typed to her mother that sometimes included drawings and handwritten messages. The suitcase in which Senesh stored her notebooks and other possessions when she departed on the mission. She left a letter stating that she is leaving the suitcase at the kibbutz containing Daddys books and other personal items, which I would not like anyone except Gyurka (her brother) or Mother to touch. The last photo of Senesh and her brother Giora taken in Tel Aviv the day Hannah departed on her mission. He had arrived in Palestine the previous day. The back of the photo was inscribed by her brother. How good and pleasant it is for siblings to be together, and sent to her in Egypt. Senesh returned it to him, adding, How good! Hannah 1944 March 10. The museum is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the last admission 30 minutes prior to closing. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for college students and $8 for students 17 and younger. Call 820-0100 or visit www.flholocaustmuseum.org.

Exp. 3/15/14SWEET PEDICURE $3 OFF Largo to study Kent Place issuesCommissioners agree to pay $150,000 for eight-month investigation By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Responding to a recent outcry from residents of Kent Place, the city of Largo will conduct an eight-month study to quantify the sanitary sewer overflows and odors that have been reported in the residential neighborhood. The study will take about eight months because city officials want to capture conditions in both the dry and rainy season, Assistant City Manager Michael Staffopoulos explained to commissioners during a work session Feb. 11. The study will cost between $75,000 and $150,000 and target three problems residents have identified: overflows in the levels of the sanitary sewer, recurring odors and the frequency with which city officials clean out the line in the neighborhood. Evidently, between what were hearing from the community versus what we have for records, we do have an information gap, Staffopoulos said. We need to do a study to try to determine more information as to whats going on out there. First, Staffopoulos proposed installing water level sensors and flow monitors on selected manholes to track the change in wastewater flows and elevations. According to citys current sewer model, overflows should not be occurring in a -year, 24-hour storm event, which means it would have to rain 8 inches or more within 24 hours, according to city documents. If overflows are occurring, the city needs to determine where, how and why, and that can only be properly assessed with a study, Staffopoulos said. Plan may balance EMS fundingThe Starkey ParkiesGroup provides information, support for Parkinsons diseasePhotos by JULIANA A. TORRESMembers of the Starkey Parkies support group, from left, Bob and Mary Etchello, Robin Hirschberg and Arlene Dawson talk during a group discussion Feb. 6 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys Emergency Medical Services is among the best in the nation. But that quality comes at a price that is getting harder and harder to afford. For years, staff has been looking for ways to cut costs without damaging response times and service. Prior studies and plans were rejected. Relationships between the county and the municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services have become strained. Still, something has to be done before the EMS millage rate reaches the cap and the reserve fund is depleted. Staffs most recent proposal comes from recommendations by consultant Fitch and Associates. Implementation of the recommended CARES model calls for reduced staffing of fire stations during nighttime hours when activity is at its lowest. CARES stands for Community-wide Alignment of Resources for Efficiency and Service. Fitch says using a CARES-2 could save Pinellas millions of dollars over time. Under the proposed new funding model, no change is recommended for Dunedin, East Lake, Gulfport, Madeira Beach, Oldsmar, Pinellas Suncoast, Safety Harbor, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island. Increased funding is proposed for Palm Harbor, Seminole and Tarpon Springs. Decreased funding is planned for Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg. The reductions would be phased in over three years. Staff estimates a savings of $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-2015. St. Petersburg takes the biggest hit with a reduction of more than $1 million over three years. Clearwaters funding would go down $669,690; Largo, $527,566; Pinellas Park, $504,789; and Lealman, $285,454. Tarpon Springs funding would increase by $381,531. Palm Harbor would receive $240,740 more. Seminole would get an increase of $143,945 in part to pay for service to Redington Beach and Redington Shores. Currently, the county pays for two positions per rescue truck 24 hours a day for 48 hours of funding. Under CARES, two positions per rescue truck would be funded for 14 hours a day plus one position on an engine for 10 hours for 38 hours of funding. The number of funded positions would go from 84 to 79.28. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said that staffing changes would not affect the countys average response time of 7 minutes, 30 seconds 90 percent of the time. Speaking at a Feb. 4 work session, MoellerCitywide scavenger hunt promotes family fun, local businesses A quest through Largo By BRIAN GOFF LARGO Was it the chance to win $300, or the opportunity to spend a day with the family? Whatever the reason, 34 teams of people showed up at the Highland Recreation Complex on Feb. 8 for the inaugural Family Scavenger Hunt. By the looks of the smiles on their faces after they finished, it was a successful event. The rules were simple. Teams had to visit the designated 12 businesses in the city, get a ticket to show they were there, fulfill a photo challenge and get back to the recreation center as quickly as possible. The winners would get $300, second place $200 and third place $100. Jennifer Baldock and her family, husband Christopher and 3-year-old son, Hayden, were quick off the mark and ultimately finished 22nd. They were out of the money, but that didnt seem to matter. It was definitely fun, and a lot of the photos made us do silly things, (they) were a challenge, she said. At McGill Plumbing, we had to pose with plungers, so we put them on Daddys head. At East Bay Car Wash, we had to pose with dirty washcloths, and we Yoga instructor Lisa Recchione demonstrates a stretch designed to open up the shoulders to the group, including in the front row from left, Joe Puzan of Largo and Betty and Al Harper of Pinellas Park.

TORRESLARGO The Feb. 6 meeting of the Starkey Parkies, a support group for those dealing with Parkinsons disease, began with a vocal exercise, not unlike ones professional actors and singers use to warm up, explained facilitator Ken Fradain. The circle repeated tricky syllables and complicated tongue twisters, each doing their best to enunciate and project the sounds. Speaking clearly and loudly is just one of the challenges those suffering from Parkinsons disease can face on a daily basis. Fortunately for me, I have not been affected that way yet, said Fradain, who acted as group facilitator for the first time that meeting.

Schulz won an award for showmanship.In good handsEvaluation of Largos urban forest completedLARGO As part of the U.S. Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Matching Grant Program, crews from Davey Resource Group have completed work to inventory and assess the condition of the city of Largos urban forest. A total of 12,049 trees along city rights-of-ways, parks and boundaries throughout Largo were evaluated through this program, according to a city press release. The health of Largos urban forest directly affects the health of the community. Trees turn carbon dioxide into much needed oxygen, helping to improve air, water and soil quality and provide very necessary shade. The city now has the resources to establish a systematic program for tree care as well as to more accurately estimate future monetary, staff and equipment commitments. Through use of the inventory and implementation of maintenance recommendations, public safety and the benefits trees provide to the community will be enhanced. Public trees, when properly maintained, return environmental, economic, and social benefits to the community, which far exceed the initial investments for planting, pruning, protection, and occasional removal. Largo named a Tree City for 25th yearLARGO The Arbor Day Foundation announced that Largo was named a Tree City USA community for its commitment to urban forestry. It is the 25th year Largo has earned this national honor from the Arbor Day Foundation, the nations largest nonprofit organization dedicated to planting trees. We all benefit when communities like Largo place a high priority on planting and caring for trees, one of our nations most beautiful resources, said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. Trees shade our homes and add beauty to our neighborhoods, and they also provide many environmental, economic and social benefits. We applaud Largos elected officials, volunteers and citizens for providing vital care for its urban forest. The Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service sponsors the Tree City USA program. Largo has met the four standards to become a Tree City USA community. Tree City USA communities must have a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, a community forestry program with annual expenditures of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

PARKIES, from page 1A4A Largo Leader, February 13, 2014washed Daddys face with them. He always gets the short end of the stick but he enjoyed it. Even though they finished 22nd out of 34 teams, Jennifer Baldock said the family will do it again next year and hopes it gets harder. Next year, they should involve more businesses, she said. That should make it harder. Everyone who took part today managed to get back in plenty of time, it was too easy. Some of the challenges werent so easy however. The UPS store in Largo required participants to burst every single bubble in a 12x12-inch piece of bubble wrap. You can bet the time it took to do that was an irritant to the teams who wanted to keep moving. At the Frame Factory, team members no matter how many had to pose behind a large, family-sized frame. For some teams, that meant squeezing in rather tightly. The Caswell family of Largo finished in 11th place. As they sat around at the post-hunt party eating hot dogs, they were already planning how they were going to approach next years event. We are a very competitive family. The Caswells are very competitive, said the father, Randy. Next year we are hoping to get a top-five finish. This year, he said it was all about the ebb and flow of getting it done. It wasnt so bad once we got going, he said. We have to get the flow going. I had five navigators; once we decided on one navigator then it got going the right way. Largo recreation planner Christina Heubel was the brains behind the event. She said it was conceived as a way to bring the community together. It was to get local businesses involved in the community and have people visit those businesses and get to know them and what they do, she said. It gets people involved in their community in a fun and memorable way. The businesses involved agreed. It is a wonderful event, said Mary Byrd, owner of the Frame Factory and Gallery. The more people we can expose to the arts, the happier Ill be. Im extremely happy with this whole event. It is a lot of fun, and I hope they do it again next year, even twice a year. Byrd said the event was all part of what makes a community come together. Weve been here for 40 years, since 1974. This is a win-win situation, I love to see things grow, she said. Over at McGill Plumbing, general manager Shane Wood was just as pleased with the scavenger hunt. I think it is a great idea, he said. I like it when the teams come in here, and they have to work together. It gets everyone involved in the community. Well definitely participate again next year. Rounding out the businesses which participated in the event were: The BB&T Bank on East Bay, Dolcinis Gelato, Golden Glow Medical Spa, Happys Home Centers, Main Street Chiropractic, Optical Factory & Showroom, Tijuana Flats and Toppers Creamery. Heubel said there will definitely be a second annual scavenger hunt, and it will likely expand to make it more difficult. We didnt expect everyone back here as quickly as they did, she said. We are pleased with the way things went; everyone is happy. It was great; it was a lot of fun. The team names of the winners were: first place, The Shark Attack; second place, The Ninja Turtles and third place, 3 Ladies and a Man.Photos by BRIAN GOFF Above, Jennifer, Christopher and 3-year-old Hayden Baldock pose inside a large frame at the Frame Factory as part of Largos Family Scavenger Hunt Feb. 8. At right, the Caswell family poses with their plungers and toilets at McGill Plumbing. QUEST, from page 1Asaid response time improvements are predicted for service to Tarpon Springs, Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Madeira Beach, St. Pete Beach and areas serviced by Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District. Response time decreases of a few seconds are possible in Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Oldsmar, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and St. Petersburg. County Administrator Bob LaSala is optimistic about the plan, estimating savings of $18 million to $20 million in the first three years, if you add in cost avoidance. In 10 years, savings could mount up to $58 million to $60 million, he said. LaSala said he reviewed the plan with mayors and city managers from 14 cities and four fire districts. Leaders from Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Oldsmar, Clearwater, Seminole, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island reportedly said they were prepared to recommend the changes. Weve been talking about this for a long, long time, said Commissioner Ken Welch. I hope we can bring it in for a landing. Moeller reported that CARES 2 does reduce overall response times by about 5 seconds, but said the increase should not affect the average of 7.5 minutes 90 percent of the time. Most calls currently are answered in about 4.5 minutes. LaSala said staff would work with the 18 providers of first responder services to create more efficiency. Well look to see if we can address the 5 seconds by how we assign calls throughout the system, he said.ObjectionsLealman Fire Chief Richard Graham believes the new plan will decrease the level of service. I understand it will save money, but what is a life worth? he asked. He disagrees with the Fitch studys assessment that the EMS system has excess capacity. He said the reserve capacity built into the system is needed to ensure response. In addition, he said, the plan shifts the costs of the system to the fire side. Graham expressed his dismay that county staff had not scheduled a private meeting with him to talk about the details. He wants to know exactly how the changes will affect Lealman. It is dj vu, said Commissioner Janet Long, referring to past discussions on EMS when the staff presentation differed from the view of the fire departments. Robert Polk, president of the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association, said, Its a never-ending dilemma, adding that his words were not intended to fuel a debate. One of his concerns is the plan to freeze costs after the end of three years of cost reductions. His bigger issue is taking units off the street. Something has to suffer, he said. He advocates more meetings and more discussion. He is concerned about the ability to respond to fires that involve injuries in the middle of the night with fewer resources. There is a cost in readiness, he said. We have to accept that. Despite, his concerns, Polk said he believed the latest plan is closer than ever to something all sides can support. He added that the countys fire chiefs had not yet met to discuss the recently released proposal. Who is getting money and who is not, thats a cloudy issue, he said. He agreed with Graham that individual meetings between fire departments and county staff were necessary for everyone to understand the effect of the proposed changes. LaSala said he planned to work with the decision makers for each of the 18 service providers not necessarily the fire chiefs. LaSala then left the room. This is not the first time weve been subject to this type of behavior, Polk said. He pointed out that a city manager was not a decision maker. Polk, who also is chief of Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District, said he was offended to be diminished and belittled at commission meetings. He talked about recent incidents that had taxed Pinellas Countys resources to the maximum. He said storms tax the system to absolute maximum. And you never know when theyre coming, he said. Hurricanes dont sneak up on us, but they tax our resources. He said due to the countys vulnerability when access to the mainland was lost when bridges were closed, it was important to be more self-sufficient than landlocked counties. LaSala returned to the meeting and apologized to Polk, saying he had not meant to demean you or others. Palm Harbor Fire Commissioner Norm Atherton said he believed the county had negotiated in good faith a deal that he would recommend to his board. However, he also had some concerns about certain aspects and the lack of communication. Communication is never perfect, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. But I pledge that each fire department will receive a presentation. Seel added that as of Feb. 2, she had served on the commission for 15 years. EMS and fire have been contentious issues, she said. Its been a journey these last 14 years for some of us here, Morroni said. Its upsetting that there is still a communication issue going on here. Commissioner Charlie Justice said it was difficult to make a decision when one side says EMS is subsidizing fire service and the other side says EMS is not paying for itself. The important thing is that were close, Commissioner Norm Roche said. EMS, from page 1Aaffects the muscles in their throats and causes problems with swallowing, and sometimes they cant speak loud enough. The Starkey Parkies is a grassroots group that meets at the Grand Villa on Starkey Road to provide a welcoming atmosphere of support, explained group leader Theo Betjemann. Many of the attendees came with a spouse or partner in their fight against the disease. One caregiver invited the group to the funeral for her mother, who had recently passed away of the disease. Aside from moral support, the monthly meetings are a forum to share exercises to forestall the effects of the disease, the latest medical tips and developments and stories that inspire each other to continue fighting. People need this kind of group, said Maria Portes of Largo, who has fought against the disease for almost 14 years. Honestly, its a very hard disease. I wish people would get educated about it. Portes was one of the initial organizers of the group, which first met in November. The organizers have been pleased by the positive response the group has had, evidenced even by the attendance of that first meeting. We got so many people. We couldnt believe it. It was overwhelming, Portes said. The original facilitator of the group, Marcy McCall, an author of a book on the disease, had to step down due to an unrelated illness. But the area set aside for the group at the Grand Villa was still filled with attendees during its most recent meeting. Portes said many people who dont experience Parkinsons disease firsthand still have a narrow view of it. They come to something like this (and) they think theyre going to see a room full of people shaking, but thats not what it is about, she said. The stiffness is my major complaint. Its hard. At my stage now, I have a lot of trouble walking sometimes. Even members of her own family dont completely understand. Once, when Portes was visiting with family about six months ago, she began to leave the room and found herself stopped. All of a sudden, I just couldnt walk. I just froze there, she said. Her brother asked her what was wrong. I said, Nothing Im frozen. He said, Why dont you put a sweater on? I was cracking up, Portes said. My brother, you have to get a little bit more educated about Parkinsons. The biggest challenge is how unpredictable the disease can be, she said. The medication sometimes just doesnt work as well as it should. I can be feeling fine now and 10 minutes from now, Ill be a mess, Portes said. Everybody always says, You look so good, but they dont know what we walk through. You have to walk in other peoples shoes. On the other side of the room where the group met, Bill Ohsa of Largo carried refreshments back to his seat and suddenly couldnt stop his hand from spilling the plastic cup of red juice. I get shaking and I cant stop, the retired construction worker explained as he recovered and began mopping up the floor. Arlene Dawson, sitting nearby, was unfazed by the spill. She lives at the Grand Villa, having given up her doublewide trailer in Clearwater, along with her independence, about three years ago, shortly after being diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. The ongoing fellowship and the information the group provides is important, she said. Her priority now is to make sure her brother, who lives in Ohio and was diagnosed with the disease before she was, also has a support group he can rely on. The ease and understanding that comes with socializing with others familiar with Parkinsons is key, explained Patty Nuytten of Largo, another organizer of the Starkey Parkies. You can get very isolated with Parkinsons. My voice is particularly affected, so I dont talk much on the phone. And its just hard to coordinate things, she said. You find yourself pretty much just staying at home if you dont do something like this. There tend to be two types of the disease. Nuytten is more affected by the stiff, rigid side of Parkinsons, as opposed to the shaky kind of Parkinsons, she said. She agreed that sudden onset of symptoms makes the disease particularly challenging. One minute, you could be fine and five minutes later, you can barely walk across the room, she said. During a socialization break, Anneliese Tedeschi of Pinellas Park sought out fellow group member Mike Mugharbel of Seminole. I noticed he walks without the walker now, she explained. Tedeschi had a fall recently and broke her neck. She has healed enough to no longer need the halo brace, but hasnt fully recovered. Now I cant get out of the wheelchair, she said. Since he got rid of his walker, I was trying to find out (how). Mugharbel said he tackled various kinds of exercise on his own to regain his mobility. Im proud of it, he said. You look like youre doing very well, Tedeschi commented. Staying active is particularly challenging to those suffering from Parkinsons, but its key to forestalling the progression of the disease, group moderators emphasized. In fact, the Feb. 6 meeting included a yoga demonstration designed to enhance mobility and stretch tense muscles. Bob Etchells of Largo said hikes and biking were his primary forms of exercise. Im not sure how safe that is, he said with a smile, explaining that the other bikers on the Pinellas Trail move a bit faster than he does. Etchells, a retired computer engineer, said the camaraderie and awareness of the latest developments in Parkinsons made the Starkey Parkies group useful. Hes also discovered a better doctor through recommendations of its members. Its inspiring, said Robin Hirschberg, who is relatively new to the supportive community, having only been diagnosed with Parkinsons in October. The members of the group are sometimes more knowledgeable about the disease than his own neurologist, Hirschberg said. Another attendee, who did not want to give his name, agreed: those who suffer from Parkinsons are able to recognize its symptoms in others, often before doctors do. Aside from encouraging its members, the group hopes to raise general awareness of the disease, said Betjemann. Parkies can continue to live a meaningful life through personal awareness, improved self-care, socialization and various therapies, she explained. All of this becomes worthy of celebration when, through support of each other and the acceptance and embrace by the mainstream community, we are able to create victories over daily challenges created by the disease. The group ended with a vocal exercise. As a group, the Starkey Parkies voiced healthy affirmations aloud. My intention is to maintain health and wellness for myself, they said together. I am grateful for the health I have now. Opportunities to reverse any and all symptoms always come my way. The group meets first Thursdays, 1:30 p.m., at the Grand Villa, 750 Starkey Road in Largo.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHealthy AgingA happy emotional outlook and sharp mental state are critical building blocks for overall good health in seniors. Physical health pales when a person suffers emotional distress and isolation, making them unable to enjoy life. In fact, emotional health and a sharp mind are critical for seniors when physical limitations prevail. Physical health can be maintained by exercising within your individual abilities, with your doctors consent. Exercise helps preserve muscle tone and bone density and can aid in balance and coordination. Daily exercise can be as simple as walking around the block or participating in a group exercise class at the local gym. Consuming a wellbalanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, and protein provides nutrients your body needs to function properly inside and out. Mental health is facilitated by challenging yourself every day. Challenges can include participating in new activities, playing games you never have before or merely extending your knowledge in one subject. Creativity is key in keeping your brain sharp and your senses focused. Emotional health becomes endangered as seniors face the loss of a spouse and other loved ones. Isolation can become prevalent due to physical limitations or the lack of desire to socialize. Anxiety and depression can affect seniors who worry about money matters, have minimal contact with others, or for those who suffer serious medical conditions. Emotional health depends largely on happiness, which is influenced by increased socialization and less isolation. Encourage seniors to join clubs, volunteer, or dine together. Daily activities give a sense of purpose, a feeling of value and create happier states of mindwhich is key in potentially avoiding the effects of stress, anxiety and depression. The primary goal of seniors is to maintain independent lives in their own homes. It is essential for seniors to understand that in order to achieve this goal they must learn how to adapt to some of these changes by pursuing healthy lifestyles that can, in turn, make independence possible well into their golden years. Comfort Keepers is a leader in in-home senior care to promote independent living. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, incidental transportation, laundry, recreational activities, personal care and technology products. 021314 KENT PLACE, from page 1ASecond, the city proposed installing odor loggers to measure the level of hydrogen sulfide gas being produced within the sewer line to determine if and where potential odors are occurring. The city would hire a consultant to install and continually monitor both types of sensors for accuracy during the study. Finally, Staffopoulos said the city would start measuring the amount of materials workers remove from the sewer line, which they do as a preventative measure every seven to 10 days. The city has kept up the practice for about a decade without analyzing the need for its frequency, he said. Kent Place residents have complained that the cleanings themselves are the source of much of the smells they endure and have questioned the need for them.Potentially, the city workers could back off the cleaning frequency, Staffopoulos said.We wont know until we have some quantitative data, he added. Commissioners will have to approve the study in a public hearing once staff determines its final scope and cost, though they agreed to the concept as presented. But not before Commissioner Woody Brown questioned whether or not the study was entirely necessary. Were going to spend $150,000 for a consultant to tell us what we know. Why not fix it, rather than spending the money and the time? he asked. The problem is its a flat system, and its not real effective. City engineer Leland Dicus said that the study would determine if the citys current model for the area was accurate. We need to do that flow metering and recalibrate the model there to be able to appropriately evaluate alternatives, he said. Without that model, we wont have the confidence to tell you, Yes, heres the size of pipe to put in, heres how much its going to cost and its going to reduce overflows. Mayor Pat Gerard voiced support for the citys proposal, despite the cost and time investment. The proposed study is similar to one that analyzed problems with the system in the Paradise Island community. We didnt want to spend the money on Paradise Island either, but what we got back was a solution, Gerard said. The money to pay for the study will come from citys sewer fund. Also discussed during the work session was the citys strategic plan for its fire rescue department, part of its periodic re-accreditation process. While complimenting Fire Chief Shelby Willis for the comprehensive scope of the document, commissioners bemoaned the potential loss of Emergency Medical Services funding from the county, as currently proposed in a new funding model.Commissioner Jaime Robinson asked that the city invite Bruce Moeller, director of the countys Public Safety Services, to give a presentation at an upcoming meeting, allowing at least everybody here to air all our feelings. Police beat Police beatLargo police investigate homicideLARGO Largo police are investigating the death of a 50-year-old woman as a homicide, after finding her body in a Largo home Feb. 6. The victim has been identified as Patricia King, police reported. Police were dispatched to 1008 10th Ave. NW, at 3:11 a.m. Feb. 6, where they found Kings body. She had suffered apparent trauma to her upper body, department spokesman Lt. Paul Amodeo stated in a release. There is no information to support that there is a threat to the community, he stated. The case was initially classified as suspicious death, but was ruled a homicide by that evening. Largo detectives are actively following up leads. Arrest made in cold-case murderCLEARWATER Clearwater police detectives arrested a man on Feb. 4 in a cold-case murder of a Clearwater woman from more than 27 years ago, police say. Janet L. Staschak was found dead in her apartment on S. Greenwood Avenue on Nov. 3, 1986. She had been strangled and sexually assaulted, police say. Detectives have now charged Stephen Manning Lamont, 57, with firstdegree murder in her slaying. Lamont now lives in Alabama, and Clearwater detectives traveled there to talk with and subsequently arrest him. No matter how old these cold cases are, our detectives never stop investigating them, said Clearwater Police Chief Anthony Holloway. Its important to us to find these killers so the families can have some kind of closure. Homicide detectives routinely revisit old cases with the goal of making an arrest. They often use new technology that was not available decades ago to see if they can find the killers. That is what happened in Lamonts case. DNA evidence taken from the scene was resubmitted and came back with a hit. Lamonts profile was in the system because he had served time in an Alabama prison for robbery. Of the 13 million DNA profiles in the databank, the only hit belonged to Lamont, the report said. Lamont had escaped from Holman Prison in Alabama in 1986 with four other inmates, the report said. During the recent police interview, he initially denied ever having been in Clearwater until detectives confronted him with his arrest in 1987 by Clearwater Police under an alias. At first, he denied knowing the victim, the report said, and then later he said he knew her but didnt know anything of her death. Lamont then talked of knowing the victim and dating her, then coming to her apartment and finding her dead, the report said. He said he altered the scene and moved her body and even drove her car to Tampa International Airport. Eventually during the interview, he admitted to detectives that he killed her. And, he said, the victim knew him as Keith Minchew, the alias he had used while he was an escapee. Lamont is being held at the Shelby County Jail in Alabama, pending extradition to Pinellas County. The Shelby County Sheriff, Chris Curry, and his detectives assisted in the investigation. Janet L. Staschak was 25 when she was killed in 1986. Stephen Lamont is in jail in Alabama, waiting extradition to Pinellas County.

Pinellas decides to keep land in Pasco for future water needs By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Majority ruled Feb. 4. Pinellas County will keep its land in Pasco County. It was a contentious decision made toward the end of an all-day meeting. After a staff presentation followed by a sometimes passionate debate, most commissioners remained opposed to selling more than 12,000 acres of land located in Pasco County to Pasco County. Commission Vice Chair Susan Latvala strongly supported selling Cross Bar and Al Bar ranches. She said it was the right thing to do. Commissioner Ken Welch also supports selling the land, calling it a home rule issue. He said the land had served its purpose. Commissioner Charlie Justice leaned in favor of selling, but wanted to know what the land was worth. He said since Pasco County wanted the land, it should pay for the appraisal. County staff estimated an appraisal cost of $20,000 to $30,000. Im willing to sell if its the right price, Justice said. Justice also wanted to know exactly how the county could spend the money, since the property belongs to the Utility Departments Enterprise Fund. Commissioner John Morroni said he understood the pros and cons. He said he was half-way there to considering selling at least one of the ranches. But the pit of my stomach is telling me not to sell, he said. He added that land values were down. Right now might not be the best time to get the best bang for our buck, he said. Commissioners Janet Long, Norm Roche and Commission Chair Karen Seel strongly opposed giving up the property. Their primary concern was ensuring that Pinellas had its own water supply in the future. Years down the road when the question is asked, who the hell let this happen, I dont want that to be the 2014 Board of County Commissioners, Roche said. Pinellas bought the 8,200-acre Cross Bar Ranch in 1976 and the adjoining 4,200-acre Al Bar Ranch in 1990. All 12,400 acres are located in central Pasco County. Utilities paid $11.1 million total for both parcels. Historically, Pinellas County has been dependent on outside sources for its drinking water with more than 50 percent of its supply coming from wellfields located in Hillsborough and Pasco counties. Water wars were common through the 1990s and unregulated pumping of water from the Florida Aquifer caused a number of environmental issues. Pinellas purchased Crossbar to help supply its water needs. Seventeen wellhead sites located on 6.41 acres began producing drinking water in 1980. The county sold the wells and water rights on Crossbar in the mid-1990s as part of a deal that created Tampa Bay Water. Pinellas also sold Tampa Bay Water its wellfields on the Eldridge Wilde property in 1998. In return, the Utilities Department received $140 million. Tampa Bay Water became a reality in 1998. The nonprofit utility supplies wholesale drinking water to Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. The utility uses a mix of groundwater, surface water and seawater to supply its member governments. As part of a 40-year agreement, Pinellas County cannot produce its own drinking water unless Tampa Bay Water fails to meet the long-term needs of the six member governments. The agreement also states that if for some reason Tampa Bay Water would cease to exist, which some officials say is highly unlikely, its assets would be divided among its members with each getting a portion of each asset.Back at the ranchesThe concept of selling the land is not new. Pinellas planned to sell the land to Florida Forever in 2008 to help meet the state-run programs goals to preserve, protect, restore and maintain land and water sources. The recession put an end to those plans. Meanwhile, Pinellas continued to take care of the land and invested in preserving the rare species that live there. Timber and straw production, cattle operations and other activities were developed to generate revenue. Prior to 2013, timber and straw production was not a moneymaking operation. But last year, Utilities turned a profit of $343,000 on timber alone. Some commissioners question the wisdom of selling the ranches when they are finally beginning to make money. One reason, according to those in favor of selling, is to raise money to pay for needed Utilities projects and reduce future rate increases for drinking water. Barbara Hoffman, chair of the Friends of Brooker Creek Preserve, supports the sale. She told commissioners that the money was needed at home. Its difficult to see money spent in Pasco County, she said. She said while preserving land was good, it doesnt help Brooker Creek. Budget cuts in recent years have resulted in reduced maintenance at the countys parks and preserves. Seel asked staff for a report on the needs at Brooker Creek. Staff pointed out that selling the land in Pasco wouldnt necessarily mean more money for parks and preserves since the money would go to the Utilities Enterprise Fund. Utilities outlined more than $31 million in capital projects in line for funding. Latvala argued that it was abundantly clear that Pinellas had no need to keep land in Pasco. That land costs us money and there is no access to our people, she said. Seel argued that the commission had to consider needs of the county in 50 to 75 years. We need to be conservative and not sell assets we might need, Seel said. Water is going to be the biggest issue globally in 50 years, she added.Pasco Countys offersPasco County set aside a portion of its next Penny for Pasco revenue to buy land it wants to preserve and use for environmentally friendly activities, such as hiking and camping. Pasco wants to buy Cross Bar and Al Bar ranches not just because they are a central piece to its environmental lands acquisition and management program, but also to ensure future Pinellas County commissions dont sell it to someone who might not be a good steward of the land. Commissioners discussed an offer from Pasco during a work session on Aug. 13 with the majority opposed. Soon after, they took a field trip to view the property. Pasco County made another bid for the ranches during the Jan. 28 regular commission meeting. The presentation, titled Opportunities for Regional Collaboration, included an offer to buy the land as well as an alternative for the counties to work together. The first offer was a fee simple scenario in which Pasco County would buy the land, continue what Pinellas County had started, as well as open the land to natural resource based recreation, such as hiking, fishing, biking, primitive camping and education activities. The second offer was an easement scenario in which Pinellas would continue to own the land and operate its agricultural operations. Pasco would acquire a conservation easement based on fair market value. Natural resources, including water, would be protected into perpetuity. Pinellas would remain in control of management and pay the costs and Pasco would provide oversight. While Pasco would like to own Cross Bar and Al Bar, that countys staff is working on 11 other projects all competing for Penny for Pasco funds. Pasco officials have said that if Pinellas does not accept its offers, the money will be spent on other projects. Latvala said Pinellas County needed to act now, not wait for an improving real estate market. Now is the only time or they will spend the money on something else, she said. Long said she understood why some wanted to sell the property, but agreed with those who dont want to sell. She said she had talked to the public after Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTYCross Bar and Al Bar ranches encompass more than 12,000 acres located in central Pasco County.

Libertarian Lucas Overby favors the state allowing medical marijuana and he supports gay marriage. speaking engagements and none had supported selling the land. Roche said he had heard the same. Justice said opinions of the people he talked to had been just the opposite. I agree with Commissioner Seel, Long said. The No. 1 issue globally is water. Today we sit here and think we have that solved. But we do not know what will happen in 25 or 50 years. Roche described the decision being made as a legacy vote. Yes it is, Morroni agreed. It is imperative to protect this option for future use, Roche added. After it was clear that the majority was in favor of keeping the land, Seel asked staff to look into what it would take to open the land up for recreational use. The ranches are not now open to the public. Pinellas has a deal with Pasco schools for students to take field trips to Cross Bar and use the education center, which cost Pinellas $1.3 million to construct. County Administrator Bob LaSala said he would ask staff to figure costs based on different levels of public access. Im interested in the public gaining more use, Seel said. The majority agreed.

When I gave up alcohol, I immediately felt better. My Saturdays are more fun, I save oodles of money in restaurants and I regularly receive good messages in the form of abundant energy from my liver, stomach, kidneys and brain. Im 53, and Im not getting any younger or any prettier so the last thing I need is alcohol slowing me down and drying me up. I also have a healthy fear of memory loss. Short and sweet: My brain needs oxygen, and alcohol starves the brain of oxygen. Hmm, guess Ive still got enough oxygen in my brain to figure that one out. Studies show that many people with memory loss have trouble getting oxygen to the brain. Im not going to starve my brain of oxygen. While drinking alcohol is widely accepted as a social norm, many people who drink are unaware of the biological impact that alcohol has on their bodies. Heres the skinny: When alcohol enters the blood stream, the red blood cells clump, which is what stops the bodys ability to absorb oxygen. The clumping blocks the small blood vessels so the tissues and organs cant receive oxygen from the blood. Without oxygen, cells, tissues and organs cant function properly. This impacts the tissues and organs in the body, causing them to experience a suffocation effect, as they are not receiving an adequate level of oxygen from the blood. Not only do I want all the brain power I can get, Im also not crazy about shriveled up skin either. Im just sayin. Here are some of my favorite reasons Im glad I dont drink alcohol anymore: 1. I like to be in control. Alcohol is designed to change the way you feel by altering your mood. It also has the ability to take away your common sense. There are countless examples of poor decisions made after even a few beers. Have you ever seen a really bad tattoo? Yeah. 2. My Saturdays are important to me. Life is short enough without losing half my Saturday (or any day after drinking) to a hangover. And yes, a headache counts as a hangover in my book. I have a family, pets, a house and a bunch of other things that Id like to be 100 percent present for. I cant do that if I feel like the north end of a southbound mule. 3. My health is a big priority. I know some people buy into the idea that a little alcohol is actually good for you, but I believe if something makes you feel like that mule the next day, it probably isnt. 4. I dont need it to have a good time. Since becoming a non-drinker, Ive become aware of a huge segment of adults who think that in order to have fun, alcohol must be involved. Have you ever noticed how many after work social activities involve drinking? 5. I feel better when I dont drink. The last point on my list is the main reason I dont drink. I feel better, healthier, more energetic, focused and more powerful when I dont drink. I have also found, when I am in a crowd of drinkers, it seriously disturbs their peace if Im not drinking. Therefore, Ive come up with a great remedy. I have what I call a Tequila Sunset, which consists of all the fixings of a Tequila Sunrise sans the alcohol. Its deliciously satisfying and keeps the inquiring minds calm, because we all know that drinkers dont like to drink alone. I chose to share my experience with you because it has made such a significant difference in both my mental and physical health. Im not getting any younger and as I zoom through my fifties with more energy than Ive had in a long time, I would love for you to have the same positive experience. I am sure there are those who are considering giving alcohol the old heave-ho for good and just need a little encouragement and there are those who wish they could stop but arent sure if they can. I quit for one month. That went well so I tried two and before I knew it I was alcohol-free for the entire year. I was seeking change in my overall health and Im delightfully happy with the results. Keeping my brain operating at its peak efficiency along with the benefit of improved vitality is why I no longer drink alcohol.A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

Everyone can make a difference, but its about deciding to make a difference, said company president Kris Hartland. Each month, a handful of nominees are recognized for their White Dove service either by employees of Trust Business Systems or by people in the community. When a person is nominated, the information about what they did and a photo of them is posted on Trusts Facebook page. Each month, one of the nominees is awarded a certificate and a $50 Visa gift card. In January, Jeff Meier from Mister Car Wash in Seminole was recognized for going above and beyond while washing Shelley Dignums Jeep. Jeff was meticulously attending to my vehicle apparently cleaning every crevice. It is inspiring to see people like Jeff who take pride in their work and seek to make customers happy, said Dignum, who lives in Indian Shores. In December, Kevin Taber, a manager at the Tyrone Walmart was recognized for his actions of helping Barbi Piersons 93-year-old grandmother with a complicated voucher for a television sold during a Black Friday event. He is an example of how we should treat each person we come in contact with, and Im humbled by his effort, said Pierson. Walmarts policy does not allow employees to accept monetary donations, so Taber has donated his $50 to Mildred Helms Elementary School in Largo. I hope this program continues to increase awareness in the community, and inspires people to give their best all the time, said Hartland. Anyone can nominate a person for a White Dove award on Trust Business Systems Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/trustbiz. The company selects a winner on the last Friday of the month. Above, January White Dove Service Award winner Jeff Meier, center, poses with Shelley Dignum, who nominated him, and Eric Theil, his manager at Seminole Mister Car Wash.

When I think of love, I think of my family. Like most of you, I love my family more than anything. The love parents have for their children is usually unconditional love. I know no matter what my kids do, I am going to love them. I may not agree or be happy with something they do, but I will always love them. Recently I read Gary Chapmans book, The 5 Love Languages of Children. The book is about how we as parents can best communicate love with our children once we know their primary love language. My girls know how much I love them, but according to Chapmans book some kids may not realize you love them if you are not filling what he calls in his book their love tank. He mentions five kinds of love in his book. They are physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service. To find out your childs love language there is a list of questions the child answers. This multiple-choice quiz can be found in the book or for free online at Chapmans website www.5lovelanguages.com. You also can try seeing how your child responds when you give the different kinds of love languages. You can try a specific love language for a week and see what happens. Chapman says when you are giving your child their primary love language you see a difference in how your child behaves. I was interested in seeing what my two girls love languages were. I also wanted to answer the quiz to find out what my love language and my husbands love language was. I will tell you my husband thought the questions were a little goofy. I still made him take the quiz. I wanted to make this a family event. It was interesting to see that my girls love languages were different. One daughters primary love language is quality of time. This means when I spend time with her she feels loved. My other daughters love language is acts of service. So when I do things for her like help her with her homework or help her pick out her clothes, she feels loved. Chapman says that we need to give our kids their primary love language, but they will benefit from having all the love languages. I also thought it was interesting how he says knowing your childs love language helps with discipline and that discipline shouldnt be something negative. It should be out of love that we discipline. I did notice that after making a conscious effort at trying to give each daughter love in their love language that it did make a difference. I know they both know I love them, but they are happier when I am filling their love tank with the love language they speak. I think knowing their love language just enhances my relationship with each one of my girls. So when you think about the ones you love this week, think about filling their love tanks. Valentines Day may not be about giving candy, flowers or cards, but just might be physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time or acts of service.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

It causes permanent brain damage. Smokers have difficulty concentrating. They suffer loss of memory, and all intellectual performance is impaired, especially in speech and math. Also their personality and emotions are abnormally affected, causing dullness, lethargy, loss of sense of time, hostile suspiciousness, and a false sense of euphoria. THC, a toxic chemical in this drug rests mainly in the fat cells of the body, particularly the brain. Marijuana damages the lungs and respiratory system 10 times faster than nicotine cigarettes. It also damages DNA (genetic cells) and the reproductive system and can cause abnormal births, according to a study at Columbia University. A second Columbia University study found that a control group smoking a single marijuana cigarette every other day for a year had a white blood cell count that was 39 percent lower than normal, thus damaging the immune system and making the user more susceptible to infection and sickness. Five marijuana cigarettes a week have the same cancer causing capacity as 112 conventional cigarettes. One marijuana cigarette causes a 41 percent decrease in driving skills. Two cigarettes cause a 63 percent decrease. Often it is difficult to detect a person who is stoned, as opposed to being drunk with alcohol and having an obvious odor. And all too often marijuana and alcohol are consumed together, studies find. If we legalize marijuana or remove penalties for possession or use, hundreds of thousands of youth will be tempted to try it. It has been known to be a gateway drug to even more dangerous drugs also. For these and many other reasons, marijuana should not be legalized in Florida. Nancy Davis SeminolePreserve a part of historyEditor: I am currently doing the historical reviews of all of Clearwaters history since its beginnings. I volunteer in the historical research section at the main library. I also have all the Belleview Biltmore history from Henry Plants first beginning in Belleair. Many historical sites, homes and buildings built as far back as the mid 1800s have been renovated, turned down but more importantly moved I think saving part of the Belleview Biltmore could be done as a win-win situation as so much of it has deteriorated. The historic Plumb house was moved and is a historical museum. It has vintage furniture, artifacts and a short video of its history. Recently, they moved the Turner House to Heritage Village. My suggestion: Donate and move the most historic part of the Biltmore to Heritage Village, where it can be restored to its original look. Perhaps it can be similar to the fabulous one at the University of Tampas museum. Change the code to residential with more single homes and townhouses to save green space and traffic issues. It is a win for the Belleview Biltmore because part of it will be preserved and visited for years to come. It is a win for our town because other important issues can be addressed and we will start being able to collect much needed tax money. Just a thought of mine while looking at hundreds of historic sites at the library. Many people have used clever solutions to preserve at least a part of history. Perhaps the town of Belleair can preserve the soul of Belleair while moving forward, which is always hard. Roma Allen BelleairShedding light on rights of rentersEditor: In a letter Why unincorporated, Dec. 26, the correspondent states the property I live on probably is not taxed. Well, I only rent here so it is not my fault I do not pay property taxes, Nothing could be further from the truth. When the owners of rental property set the rent they include the property tax in their calculation of how much to charge. Thus, in a very real sense the renter is the only one who really pays the tax on rental property, and the owner of the rental property is no more than a tax collector. Many of our founding fathers subscribed to the mythic idea that people who dont pay taxes shouldnt be given the vote, and since renters dont pay taxes they shouldnt be given the right to vote. The introduction to the article For Wider Suffrage (The Annals of America, Volume 4, page 640) describes the situation better than I ever could. The first state constitutions limited the suffrage to property holders. By the first decade of the 19th century, when those early constitutions came under review, there existed a new class of Americans, who did not own land, but who nevertheless felt a vital interest in government and were ready to press for the right to vote. Men like John Adams, Joseph Story, Daniel Webster, James Madison and James Monroe defended the status quo: They foresaw a society divided along economic lines, rent by conflict between rich and poor, and they feared that extension of suffrage would provide the masses with a political weapon with which to attack the rights of property. Liberals denied that the masses had any desire for class conflicts The attitudes and liberals and conservatives havent changed very much since then. The fears and phobias of our founding fathers led to some strange ideas on who should vote. Consider the letter On the Importance of Property for the Suffrage by John Adams, which is an answer to a letter from James Sullivan. The Annals of America, Volume 2, pages 422-423, includes the statement: Is it not equally true that men in general, in every society, who are wholly destitute of property are too little acquainted with public affairs to form a right judgment and too dependent upon other men to have a will of their own. And, this from the same letter, even more absurdly: why exclude women? You will say because their delicacy renders them unfit for practice and experience in the great businesses of life and the hardy enterprises of war, as well as the arduous cares of state. One can only wonder what the authors of stuff like that would have thought of Golda Meir, Indira Ghandi and Margaret Thatcher. I admit that I do not admire our founding fathers as much as others do, e.g., Justice Scalia. In this matter I stand with Benjamin Franklin who in a speech to the constitutional convention wrote I cannot help expressing a wish that every member doubt a little of his own infallibility. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 163. I also stand with George Washington who wrote, I do not think we are more inspired, have more wisdom or possess more virtue than those who will come after us. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 238. Palmer O. Hanson Jr. Largo Hes finally facing up to FacebookA week ago the Internet company, Facebook, marked its 10-year anniversary. Its a major success story about a college student named Mark Zuckerberg who conceived an idea, put it to work in his dorm room, and now is worth more money than most Central American nations. The idea behind Facebook was to help friends and family stay in touch. Today half the world, plus the population of several small planets, swap messages on Facebook. Most of the messages possess the intrinsic value of a rabbit sneeze, but the same thing might be said of the Internets other social networking entities such as Twitter, You Tube and email. No harm need result, and many users of Facebook gradually discover as they devote 10 or 15 hours a day to scrolling that they now have a purpose in life. I envy them. For the past few years Ive had a Facebook page, but Ive made the mistake of not really learning how the dadblamed system works. When Ive dipped my toes into the mix by sending or replying to messages wafted my way, my efforts have disappeared into the void. I end up not knowing if anyone received what I sent, or (even less likely) that they gave a hoot that I tried to get in touch with them. This includes instances in which I asked the addressee to get in touch with me by phone or by email, so that we could converse, so to speak, like two rational humans instead of furnishing our private thoughts to be read by dozens or hundreds of alleged Facebook friends, who might or might not remember who we are, or could care less. My connectivity batting average has been mighty low, but Ive enjoyed and appreciated those few persons who have responded. By now Ive had to admit that I may not be destined to be a successful social networker. Such a person, from what I can tell, emerges from the womb wearing a smile and attempting to shake hands with his/her mother, father, the doctor and all the nurses in the delivery room. He has a built-in knack for building friendships, and has a need to be in touch with as many persons as possible. As a Facebook fan, he wants to know and be known, and to share his thoughts and experiences no matter how pedestrian. But I could be wrong. Or half-wrong. On the opposite end of the Facebook spectrum could be persons who are shy, introverted, lacking social skills, and desperate to establish friendships, including the phony ones that can thrive even for a short time on Facebook. Have the professional researchers ever made an attempt to find and describe a typical Facebook user? If so, please let me know what was learned. I fall somewhere between the two extremes Ive listed above. I enjoy meeting and knowing people, but not so much that I reach out very much to them. I value conversation, but not with certified looneys. As I scroll through Facebooks entries, I sense that the soup du jour for most of the exchanges is at the level of superficial backyard gossip rather than the stating of deep concerns on matters of universal importance. And thats to be expected. After all, who would want to reveal her/his innermost feelings to a gallery of viewers many of whom, if she met them face to face, wouldnt know her from Adams off ox? Still, Facebook obviously is powerful and useful. As I begin writing this column, the networks are telling of a young woman, an Olympian speed skater, whose family will be with her in Sochi only because Facebook viewers read about the familys need for the funds that would make their trip possible. The word went out, and the donations came in. Facebook indeed has wings. Not too many years ago humans communicated by means of smoke signals, drums and carrier pigeons. Along came the U.S. mail, pony express and telegraph, followed by the telephone, wireless Morse code transmissions and voice radio. Not long thereafter society was graced with television, the computer, fax machines, the Internet and its stepchildren email, Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, and Instagram. Im sure Ive missed a few citations. Each of these inventions helped to shrink the world and bring its inmates closer, along with the question Just how close to people do I need or want to be? Also, Along with all this newfound intimacy, are we any wiser, happier or more loving? Facebook can help us answer these questions, at least for those participants who care enough to ask them.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Retirement: challenges and advantagesIts been more than three years since I retired. I believed at the time that living by calendar schedules, fighting commuter traffic and fending off lifes challenges was behind me. I liked being a Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. I feel privileged to again be granted an occasional 15 inches or so of editorial page space to report on or vent on topics dear to my heart. Modern senior citizens are unlike those of decades ago who often spent their remaining years in back yards or front porches waiting to die. Todays older Americans are more active, more involved, and certainly more cerebral than those of preceding generations. Often times we travel, perform volunteer work or merely track the adventures of Jerry Springer or Steve Wilkos and wonder where they find those people that appear on their shows. Thanks to modern electronics we keep up on current events through newspapers, television, and smart phones that do practically everything but brew the morning coffee. My step granddaughter knows all about contemporary electronics. She is the go-to person in the family when our gadgets refuse to work. But I have grown to absolutely abhor automated telephone systems that banks, credit card and insurance companies employ. Patience is not one of my virtues. Dealing with electronic voice commands that demand pushing buttons to answer questions instead of talking to real people is challenging and frustrating. Just recently I threatened an electronic voice with something that would be impossible to accomplish without being a contortionist. The metallic response: Thank you, I will transfer you to a representative. I sometimes wonder how my mother who was in her late 80s and legally blind overcame the obstacles of modern survival.Then there are the doctor visits where nurses and office workers often affectionately address seniors as honey and sweetheart. Many of us resent that. Last month my wife had to undergo a colonoscopy. The doctor actually presented us with before and after color pictures of the procedure. I wondered aloud if I should have them enlarged to frame and hang over the living room sofa. And why would a doctor specialize in that sort of thing, anyway?Being a senior citizen does have its privileges. We get modest discounts at restaurants and stores. My days of flashing press credentials are over. I now offer an AARP card. People seem to be more courteous to older folks. Last year we visited New York City and I was astonished over how many young people offered me a subway seat. I declined each time, proving instead that I was wholly capable of hanging on to a stanchion pole without being catapulted through the entire length of the train as it roared into the 42nd Street station. As age advances we find that accomplishing once-routine chores has become slightly difficult. Young women in skimpy clothing are less interesting. Mowing a lawn is challenging on hot summer days. We suffer from aches and pains. We forget easily and actually obey traffic laws. I am fortunate to have a wonderful wife and an extended family. I still go to the gym three times a week. We travel. Im reasonably healthy and still set goals for the future. There arent too many things I would change if I could rewind my life. Perhaps I would practice patience, listen more to what people have to say, accept human idiosyncrasies, and put my mind in gear before starting my mouth.As for the good old days ... theyre just beginning.

Alex Silversmiths 442-7333011614SILVER & 021314B Sanborn Fire Insurance maps can answer burning questionsWe all know the value of using maps in our genealogy research. They help to locate our ancestors on the ground where they lived and worked, and thus go a long way in helping us more fully appreciate the lives they led. There is one type of map that is very helpful in this pursuit because it gives us such amazing detail, but which may not be in our awareness as much as the familiar road map or plat map is. That is the Sanborn insurance map collection. Those maps were originally created to aid in estimating fire insurance liabilities, and as such, insurance underwriters used the maps to determine risks and establish premiums. You can see from this use the reason for the detail that was provided. As a side benefit, they provide an insight to American urbanization that is typically not found in other types of maps. Therein lies their value to genealogists. The Sanborn Company, founded by a surveyor from Somerville, Mass., named Daniel Sanborn, began making these maps in 1867. In time his firm became the largest and most successful American map company. The company headquarters was in Pelham, N.Y., but had regional offices in other large cities across the county. It had a host of surveyors it used to record the location, shape, and other relevant details about buildings in all major urbanized areas throughout the country. In addition, it was surprising how many small communities also were the subject of Sanborn maps. The firm issued maps primarily between the late 1870s and the early 1960s for about 12,000 American cities and towns. Some areas had multiple editions produced, and even communities with as few as a couple of hundred people had maps made for them. The Sanborn maps themselves were produced on 21-inch by 25-inch sheets of paper and bound in volumes. They were relatively large scale showing 50 feet on the ground to 1 inch on the map. Updates were pasted into the volumes until completely new editions were created. The maps included text or abbreviations to describe the purpose of the buildings, identifying them as dwellings, factories, businesses, etc. Each map typically covered a four to six block area, and included an index of streets and addresses, and special indexes for churches, schools, businesses, and such as needed. Because of their intended use, many details were provided to include outlines of each building and outbuilding, window and door locations, sidewalk widths, property boundaries, fire walls, natural features, railroad corridors, building use (sometimes even particular room use), composition of building materials, existence of sprinkler systems, locations of fire hydrants, location of water and gas mains, and more Their use to genealogists can be significant. We can make use of all that detail to learn about the structures our ancestors lived and worked in. Because of their detail, we can use them to determine which new house numbers correspond to particular old dwellings. We also can create a list of organizations and businesses in the area that may have been used by an ancestor. Such organizations may include churches, schools, laundries, groceries, etc. By researching those organizations, we may uncover new evidence and clues regarding a familys past. If used in combination with a city directory, we can develop an informative sense of the neighborhood in which our ancestor lived. Today Sanborn maps are found primarily in the archives and special collections of town halls and public and university libraries, some of which are on line. Cyndis List is a good place to look for sites (cyndis list.com), and the Library of Congress map collection lists thousands of maps where over 6,000 are online (www.loc.gov/rr/geogmap/sanborn). Another good reference is Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San born_Maps), which lists Sanborn map collections by city and state, identifying many, which are digitized and online. If you are at a stage in your genealogy research where you want maps to help visualize aspects of your ancestors lives, dont overlook the value of Sanborn maps. They are a captivating reference to explore, and once you start to use them, you may find yourself drawn into the story they tell, whether they directly relate to one of your ancestors or not.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist and past president of the Pinellas Genealogy Society.

Tri-paw sweetheartCongratulations to Mila, a three-legged pit bull mix, who is Februarys Pet of the Month photo contest winner. Her human mom, Inga Martinez, adopted her from Pinellas County Animal Services, where she volunteers. Mila is now 2 years old and was adopted a year ago on Halloween. Even though she only has three legs, she still runs just as fast or faster than her four-legged buddies. Mila is a very athletic and fun dog. She was picked up as a stray with several old breaks in her front leg that had grown back wrong, so the leg had to be amputated, Martinez said. After the amputation, she spent 10 days in a wonderful foster home, and a few days later, Martinez adopted her. Mila loves her new home, where she also has an 11-year-old shepherd mix doggy brother, Roxy. They have a blast playing together, riding in the car and going for walks. Martinez said that after spending time with Mila, she has a pretty good idea how she got the breaks in her leg. The way Mila reacts to sticks, empty paper towel rolls, brooms, or anything that looks like a bat makes Martinez suspect that she was beaten. I make sure she never sees any objects that look anything like what could be used as a bat. I will make sure she never has to be afraid again, Martinez said. As Pet of the Month winner, Mila has won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

A healthy immune system is very important; many infections and diseases can be prevented, or made better, by a healthy and active immune system. More is not always better though, for other diseases occur when the immune system is too strong. The white blood cells and antibodies are the armies of the immune system, attacking invading bacteria, viruses and other organisms. The antibodies, and some white blood cells, recognize and attach to foreign invaders, directing the white blood cells to attack and destroy the bad germs. The antibodies are very specific; they need to target the causes of infection while avoiding the actual hosts own body. If the immune system is not strong enough, foreign organisms can come and cause disease. Bacteria can cause kennel cough, viruses can cause parvovirus, feline leukemia virus, or rabies, yeast can cause ear infections and fungus can lead to pneumonia, just to name a very few possible problems. Our pets bodies, and our own, are constantly being assaulted by foreign invaders determined to cause illness. But like many things in nature, there must be moderation with the strength and power of the immune system; an overactive immune system causes problems as well. If the antibodies and white blood cells react to normal substances, such as pollens or proteins in food, it can lead to severe skin allergies or asthma in the lungs. An overreaction to an insect sting can cause hives, facial swelling, or even anaphylaxis, where the throat swells shut. Even worse is when the immune system becomes confused and begins to attack the dogs or cats own body parts. If the immune system attacks the cartilage, it can lead to a rheumatoid arthritis. If it attacks the red blood cells, which carry oxygen, it can cause a spontaneous lifethreatening anemia (known as an auto-immune hemolytic anemia.) Sometimes the immune system attacks platelets, which allow the blood to clot, and cause spontaneous bleeding. The immune system can also attack the skin, causing horrible flesh-eating rashes called pemphigus. The controversy comes with regards to vaccines. Vaccines stimulate the immune system by helping it to practice fighting certain germs. The vaccine against parvo-virus allows the immune system to become and stay good at fighting this common disease, which leads to potentially fatal bloody vomiting and diarrhea. It is a very serious disease and absolutely needs to be prevented. At the same time, however, we need to be careful not to over-stimulate the immune system and cause other problems. The pendulum has swung back and forth on how often and how many vaccines to give our pets. Most universities now recommend against the vaccinate to everything every year protocol that was common a decade ago. At the same time, avoiding vaccines altogether has led to an increase in preventable diseases in people, and these pet infections still occur with frightening regularity. The answer lies somewhere in the middle and is a topic for discussion with your pets vet. Moderation is never easy; the middle ground is always filled with complicated grays instead of the easy black and whites. Keeping our pets healthy is important, and to do so we need to cross into that moderation space.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www .LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Six high schools Boca Ciega, Gibbs, Lakewood, Largo, Northeast and St. Petersburg are using the peer-to-peer mentoring model to help younger students navigate the high school experience. Mentors are a critical component to ensuring student success, said Michael A. Grego in a press release. Grego is superintendent of Pinellas County Schools. The guidance and insight offered by peer mentors is especially valuable to students, who receive support from people who can really relate to them. The Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program matches high school sophomores, juniors and seniors with freshmen. The program, in alignment with the districts strategic plan, is intended to give freshmen and some sophomores the skills and tools they need to succeed in high school. Peer mentors share their own experiences to help students learn about topics ranging from school rules and culture to study habits and course selection. The program also offers students in upper grades the opportunity to hone leadership and communication skills while earning volunteer hours applicable to Bright Futures Scholarships or other volunteer hour requirements. Alexis Franco, a sophomore at Largo High School became a peer mentor through her role in Largo Leaders, a student advisory group that meets regularly with school Principal Brad Finkbiner to discuss school improvement. Franco mentors a ninth-grader. We talk about what classes she struggles in and I talk to her about my experiences my freshman year and how I found solutions with the problems I had, Franco said. Being a mentor, Franco said, has helped her come out of her shell and become a better listener. And her mentee benefits from having a new friend who can help guide her through new experiences, she said.Business partner award finalists namedLARGO At the recent Business Partner of the Year Reception at the Stavros Institute in Largo, nine organizations were named as finalists for the 2014 Business Partner of the Year, presented by the Pinellas Education Foundation and Pinellas County Schools.

Paschal is a 2002 graduate of Largo High who went on to play four years at the University of Iowa and three years with the Baltimore Ravens. It was a very tough decision because of the great candidates who interviewed, said Brad Finkbiner, Largo High School principal. Marcus stood out because of his loyalty to the program and because he wants the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of his high school coach. I am confident he will continue the great legacy of Packer football. Paschal met with the schools football team for the first time Feb. 7. I am extremely happy with the chance to coach my former team, Paschal said. I look forward to meeting the team and continuing the tradition that Coach Rick Rodriguez started. Largo High has won 10 straight district titles, and I intend to continue the streak. Paschal is replacing Rodriguez, Largo High Schools football coach for the last 14 seasons. Coach Marcus Paschal will be a great fit to lead Largo High School Football scholar athletes, Rodriguez said. A Largo alumnus, Marcus was a standout student athlete during his time as a Packer. Marcus will bring in a top-notch coaching staff. I wish Coach Paschal and the Packers well.

PETERSBURG The Rowdies named Perry Van Der Beck general manager of the St. Petersburg-based North American Soccer League franchise. A captain of the 1980 United States Olympic soccer team and 1984 U.S. Soccer Player of the Year, Van Der Beck began his professional career with the Rowdies in 1978, when he was the first player in NASL history to be drafted out of high school. He has held leadership positions with the Tampa Bay Mutiny and the Tampa Bay Terror, and recently served as the executive vice president, technical director and director of player development for the Rowdies. Perry is the perfect man to lead the Rowdies into this new era, said club owner and chairman Bill Edwards. His personal history with the team, along with his passion, vision and proven track record at developing young talent, will help him build a perennial winner here in Tampa Bay. Together we will do great things for the club and our community. I am thrilled to have this opportunity, said Van Der Beck. The Rowdies organization has held a special place in my heart for the last 35 years, and were blessed with the most boisterous, enthusiastic fans in all of NASL. We captured the Soccer Bowl Championship in 2012, and my entire staff is focused on returning the championship trophy to Tampa Bay where it belongs. I look forward to helping Bill Edwards create not just the best on-field soccer team, but the best fan experience anywhere in the country. Van Der Beck has earned industry-wide acclaim as one of the premier developers of new soccer talent. From 1988 to 1994, Van Der Beck was a star player and assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Rowdies, and also made 23 appearances for the U.S. National Team. Among his many individual awards are 1984 U.S. Player of the Year and captain of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. During the 2003-04 season, Van Der Beck was a staff coach with the Adidas Elite Soccer Program, which identifies the nations best high school players and coaches them in a weeklong training program. From 2004 to 2006, he was head coach and technical director of the Olympic Development Program for the Super Y League, a National Youth League. The Rowdies were the first professional sports franchise in the area and remain one of the most recognizable and well-loved brands in soccer. Originally established in 1975, the team won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship in its inaugural year and created a unique, entertaining and memorable franchise with the Fannies,Rowdies and unforgettable Kick in the Grass theme song. In 2008, a group of investors announced the purchase of rights to a professional soccer franchise and the newly established team began play in 2010. In 2012, the Rowdies won the NASL Soccer Bowl Championship after a thrilling shoot-out victory in front of a sold out crowd at Al Lang Stadium in downtown St. Petersburg.

When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance to build a part-man, partrobot police officer.

Special guest Jon Anderson, the voice of the iconic prog-rock band Yes, will open the show performing Yes classics such as Roundabout, Ive Seen All Good People, Long Distance Runaround and more. Parsons is lauded as the sound engineer for Pink Floyds Dark Side Of The Moon. His genius and skill brought him to the attention of the music world and he has gone on to enjoy success as a producer, songwriter and performer. Working as assistant engineer at Abbey Road Studios, Parsons first emerged in the industry working on the Beatles LP Abbey Road. He went on to engineer projects for Paul McCartney, The Hollies and Pink Floyd. Then, in 1975, Parsons partnered with singer Eric Woolfson to create The Alan Parsons Project. All in the familyAccording to the artists website, Parsons was born into a family with longstanding connections to the entertainment industry. His family tree includes Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree, his great-grandfather. Tree was a well-known English actor and theater manager. Tree founded the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1904. His wife, actress Helen Maud Holt, often joined him on the stage and also assisted him with theater management. Trees daughter, Viola, followed in her fathers footsteps becoming an actress, singer, playwright and author. She appeared often with her fathers company at His Majestys Theatre. Later she appeared in opera, variety, straight theater and film. She married Alan Leonard Romaine Parsons with whom she had several children, including Alan Parsons father, Denys Parsons, who worked in the field of scientific research and invention before becoming a film-maker and, later, the press officer for the British Library. Denys was an accomplished pianist and flautist as well as the author of many books. Parsons mother also was an actress, as well as a professional folk singer and harpist. Other relatives in the entertainment business include the late Oliver Reed, film actor, and David Tree, film and stage actor.Abbey Road StudiosAlan Parsons landed a job at Abbey Road Studios when he was 19. His adventure in the world of sound recording began there, working as an assistant engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles. Qualifying as a fully-fledged recording engineer, Parsons went on to work with Paul McCartney and The Hollies among many others. Still, it was his contribution as engineer on Pink Floyds classic Dark Side Of The Moon that really earned him industry attention. He soon found himself producing singles such as Pilots Magic, John Miles Highfly and Music, and Steve Harleys Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me). Parsons also produced the hugely successful Year Of The Cat album with Al Stewart and two albums Photo courtesy of RUTH ECKERD HALLAbove, Alan Parsons plays Ruth Eckerd Hall Feb. 15 as part of the venues Rock Symphony Concert series. Above right, Jon Anderson will open the concert.with American progressive rock band Ambrosia.Alan Parsons ProjectIn 1975, Parsons met Eric Woolfson. Woolfson became his manager and the two joined forces to establish The Alan Parsons Project. The APPs debut album, Tales Of Mystery And Imagination, offered musical interpretations of works by Edgar Allan Poe. The album paved the way for a signing to Clive Davis newly launched Arista label and, in turn, a string of hit albums including I Robot (1977), Pyramid (1978), The Turn of a Friendly Card (1980), Eye in the Sky (1982), Ammonia Avenue (1984), Vulture Culture (1985), Stereotomy (1986) and Gaudi (1987). Since the breakup of the band, Parsons has released a string of solo albums including Try Anything Once, 1993; On Air, 1986; The Time Machine, 1999; and A Valid Path, 2004. Though APP recorded 10 albums between 1975 and 1987, Parsons and his entourage never played any concerts. Only after the release of his first solo album did he feel compelled to start touring. The new creative team convinced me I belonged on the stage, Parsons said in a 2006 interview with Tampa Bay Newspapers. The decision was at least in part driven by business. Parsons said what prompted him to start playing concerts was the need to give the album we had at the time Try Anything Once the best chance at commercial success. Fans savored the opportunity to hear both new material and works from Parsons vast APP catalogue. The avid enthusiasm of his audiences still surprises him. It never ceases to amaze me, people keep coming back, Parsons said. He said he enjoys visiting and performing at new places. Though touring seems like a second career for a man who spent so much of his time in the recording studio, Parsons clearly enjoys the interaction with the fans. Its something you dont get in the studio, he said.Yes vocalist Anderson to open the showBefore Parsons performs, Jon Anderson will take the stage, performing a selection of Yes classics such as Roundabout, Ive Seen All Good People, Long Distance Runaround and more. Anderson is one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock. The lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes, Anderson helped forge a series of epics produced by Yes such as Close to the Edge, Awaken and The Gates of Delirium. He co-authored the groups biggest hits, including Ive Seen All Good People, Roundabout and Owner Of A Lonely Heart. Born in Lancashire, England, in 1944, Andersons early career in music included a stint with The Warriors from 1962 through 1967. After leaving the band, he released two solo singles in 1968 under the pseudonym Hans Christian Anderson, and then briefly sang for the band The Gun. In March 1968, Anderson met bassist Chris Squire and joined him in a group called Mabel Greers Toyshop, which included guitarist Peter Banks. A year later, drummer Bill Bruford and keyboardist Tony Kaye would join them in the first incarnation of Yes.Photo courtesy of GLASS ONYON PUBLICITYBatiste, Stay Human to play Straz CenterTAMPA Jon Batiste and Stay Human will perform Tuesday, Feb. 18, 8 p.m., in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N.

It is a timeless theme in modern storytelling, dating back to Shakespeares star-crossed lovers, but one that remains urgently current because it serves as a rite of passage for everyone in every generation. Endless Love stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde in the story of Jade Butterfield and David Elliot, a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. Although separated by class boundaries, their gravitational pull is undeniable and unstoppable. During the months following their high school graduation, Jade, a sheltered young woman with a limitless future, becomes enthralled with David, a workingclass boy with a troubled past who in turn falls head over heels for her. Their romance collides with Jades controlling fathers attempts to steer her clear of David, while her mother encourages the relationship to thrive and his father advises clear-eyed caution. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, two young lovers will defy logic and allow their allconsuming passion to determine their future together.The following will open in limited release.

PETERSBURG Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh, a special multi-media, private artifact exhibition, is on display through April 27 at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S. FHM is one of three U.S. cities to host the exhibition. Prior to its arrival in the Tampa Bay area, it visited Chicago and New York. After its run at FHM, the collection will return to Israel. Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh is not a traveling exhibition but a collection of personal items thats likely never to be seen together again. Entrusted to organizers by Seneshs nephews, the exhibition includes a wide-range of personal artifacts including her diary, a newspaper she published with her brother, and a collection of personal notebooks and photographs. Senesh is widely known as the author of Walking to Caesarea, her 1942 poem that was set to music in 1945 and is largely considered the virtual second anthem for the state of Israel. Recently performed by Regina Spektor at a concert in Israel this past August, it was also prominently featured in the movie Schindlers List. Organized by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City, the 2,500-square-foot exhibition also includes audio/visual displays by Roberta Grossman, the award-winning director of Blessed is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh. We could not be more thrilled that St. Pete is one of three cities to receive this very important chronicle of one of the Holocausts most respected heroes, said Elizabeth Gelman, director of the Florida Holocaust Museum. A strong, resourceful, courageous woman, her story continues to inspire people across the globe. We expect the exhibition to draw visitors from across the state of Florida.About Hannah Senesh There are people whose glorious memory continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living these lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way. Senesh wrote these words in a letter to her mothers family in Dombvr, Hungary, upon the death of her great-aunt Betti Mama, in September 1940. Senesh, a young woman who took part in a secret British mission so that she might also help Jews in Europe, was one of those people. She also was the talented poet who wrote those words that would, along with her diary, be read by millions of people around the world. Seneshs life was short but her memory continues to impact millions. Senesh was born on July 17, 1921, into a Hungarian-Jewish middle class family. She went to a private Protestant secondary school where she was one of a small number of Jewish students. While she excelled there, she also eventually encountered institutionalized anti-Semitism. Her response was to become an ardent Zionist intent on settling in Palestine. She left Budapest for Palestine in September 1939, two weeks after Germanys invasion of Poland. After completing two years of studies at the Agricultural School for Young Women in Nahalal, she joined the newly organized kibbutz, Sedot Yam. In the summer of 1943, wanting to help in the effort to defeat the Nazis and to do something for the Jewish remnant in Europe, Hannah accepted an invitation to join a unit being trained to parachute into occupied Europe. There, she and the other Palestinian-Jewish volunteers would carry out a double mission. For the British, she would help set up escape routes for downed Allied aircrews who had evaded capture; for the Haganah the Palestinian Jewish underground army she would organize Jews and help them to escape. Senesh and four colleagues parachuted into Yugoslavia in March 1944. She crossed into Hungary in early June, but was immediately captured by the Hungarian authorities. She was imprisoned for six months and was brutally interrogated. While in prison, she taught her fellow prisoners Hebrew and inspired them with stories of life in Palestine. Her mother was arrested in an attempt to extract information from her, but Senesh refused to give her captors the information they sought. She was tried for treason, and executed by firing squad on Nov. 7, 1944, at the age of 23. Her remains were moved to Israel in 1950, and she is now buried in the section of Israels national military cemetery dedicated to the parachutists. Her mother and brother survived the war. Highlights of the exhibition The exhibit starts in cosmopolitan Budapest of the 1920s and 1930s, exploring Seneshs home life, education, and religious beliefs as part of a bourgeois Jewish family. It shows how her priorities changed in 1938 and 1939 upon facing anti-Semitism, and how she became a Zionist. The exhibition follows Senesh to the Agricultural School of Young Women in Nahalal and portrays her physical and spiritual life there and at Kibbutz Sedot Yam through the use of her own words, including the text of her famous 1942 poem Halikha LKesariya (A Walk to Caesarea), known worldwide as Eli, Eli. This short Hebrew poem was set to music in 1945, and has since become a virtual second anthem in Israel. Seneshs mission, imprisonment, trial and execution are narrated through the words of her acquaintances, family, and friends who were witness to these tragic events. The exhibition concludes with a section describing Hannahs legacy. Items featured in the exhibition include: An edition of Kis Szenesek Lapja (Newspaper of the Little Seneshes), produced in 1929 by Senesh and her brother Giora). Readers paid for the paper with chocolates. Seneshs Hungarian passport with its visa to Palestine. The portable typewriter Senesh brought with her to Palestine along with letters she typed to her mother that sometimes included drawings and handwritten messages. The suitcase in which Senesh stored her notebooks and other possessions when she departed on the mission. She left a letter stating that she is leaving the suitcase at the kibbutz containing Daddys books and other personal items, which I would not like anyone except Gyurka (her brother) or Mother to touch. The last photo of Senesh and her brother Giora taken in Tel Aviv the day Hannah departed on her mission. He had arrived in Palestine the previous day. The back of the photo was inscribed by her brother. How good and pleasant it is for siblings to be together, and sent to her in Egypt. Senesh returned it to him, adding, How good! Hannah 1944 March 10. The museum is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the last admission 30 minutes prior to closing. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for college students and $8 for students 17 and younger. Call 820-0100 or visit www.flholocaustmuseum.org.
