A ballot question is scheduled to appear on the Nov. 4 ballot, asking voters to approve allowing physician-supervised use of cannabis. Bills filed in the House and Senate of the Florida Legislature Feb. 10, call for legalization of controlled use of medical marijuana. Pinellas County Commission Norm Roche, who serves on the Public Safety Coordinating Council, brought the subject up during the Feb. 11 commission meeting. He said the coordinating council was looking at what county ordinances might be affected if medical marijuana was legalized. Its a very fascinating discussion, Roche said. Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch asked about the paraphernalia ordinance enacted when he was chair in 2006. Roche said it was among those being considered. He said the sheriffs office also was looking at what county laws legalization might affect. Welch pointed out that if medical marijuana were legalized, an education campaign likely would be required to inform the public that not all marijuana use was legal.Push for legalizationUnited for Care is the backer of the constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana. The Florida Division of Elections confirmed that enough signatures had been validated to put the measure on the November ballot and the state Supreme Court approved the ballot language in January. The Florida Division of Elections reports that Pinellas County residents accounted for 76,787 of the 786,368 valid signatures favoring placing an amendment on the ballot. According to the nonprofit lobbying organization Norml, the amendment would allow doctors to recommend cannabis therapy to their patients and authorize the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. To pass, the amendment needs 60 percent approval by voters.Largo considers downtown signsCommissioners discuss ways to set apart businesses on West Bay, beyond By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The owner of a recently closed business on West Bay Drive spoke up during the Largo commission meeting Feb. 18 to ask city leaders to define the downtown area. Ahiskell Delgado owner of Dolcinis Gelato, which until this weekend was located at 325 W. Bay Drive said she only recently found out that her business was located in downtown Largo. I never saw I sign that says, Welcome to Largo, Welcome to downtown Largo. Where is downtown Largo? I dont know, she said. Other signs point to Largo Public Library, Central Park and City Hall, but nothing delineates where Largos downtown businesses and restaurants begin, she said. As she mourned the loss of her own business, she wanted to speak out to help other businesses in Largos undefined downtown area. I hope we are the grain of corn that fell on the ground, that died (and) that will bring life for the rest of the people that are there, she said. They need help. They need a lot of help. They cannot do it on their own. The meeting included a public hearing to approve the Largo Mall Activity Center Special Area Plan, designed to act as a catalyst for future economic redevelopment, according to city documents. The designation, unanimously approved by commissioners, gives framework to the area around the Largo Mall, allowing for more intense mixed-use development compared to other parts of Ulmerton Road. Assistant Community Development Director Bob Klute said the designation would allow the malls movie By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Bayhead Action Park now includes a fenced-in half-acre dog park, which will eventually include a fire hydrant drinking fountain, K9 agility items and a paw-shaped picnic table. The park, dubbed Dog Bone Run, has been enclosed with a 4-foot fence. The other dog-friendly amenities should be installed in a month or less, said parks supervisor Greg Brown. While the gate has no latch yet, Brown said hes noticed nearby residents letting their dogs play in the open space already. People have gotten the picture, he said. Its good to see theres a need there. Joe and Candi Soltau walked their 8-year-old Shih Tzu through Bayhead to the dog park the evening of Feb. 17. Encouraging little Willie to exercise was important, they said, adding that they enjoyed the atmosphere of the park. The whole neighborhood uses it, said Joe Soltau. Its pretty communal.Chamber president reflects over last 10 years See DOG PARK, page 3APhoto by JULIANA A. TORRESTom Morrissette, pictured in his Largo office, celebrated his 10th anniversary as president of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce last month. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Tom Morrissette didnt really have an end date in mind when he started with what is now called the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce 10 years ago. He didnt even have the job lined up when he moved to Tampa Bay in September 2003 with only his clothes, some dishes, pots and pans. Looking to escape the snow and try something different, he had accepted an offer for his condo in Massachusetts, sold almost everything and headed to Florida. He signed a seven-month lease on an apartment in St. Petersburg. The offer on his condo had been much higher than what he originally had bought it for at an auction, so he had some funds to burn. Morrissette, then 42, had never been to the west coast of Florida, but had some friends in the area. I played hooky for a little, checking out the beach and exploring the area, he said. I thought, if it doesnt pan out, Ill go back up north. About a year and a half prior, he had been laid off from his relatively new job as vice president of marketing for the Central Massachusetts Regional Tourism Council, a state agency that had suffered financially post-Sept. 11. After a month in Florida, he saw an ad in the newspaper for the job as president of what was then the Largo/Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and figured he could handle running a 400-member chamber. By March, Morrissette was watching sunsets from a rented cottage on Belleair Beach and marveled that he had gone from no job in Massachusetts to a great job in a completely new state in only a year. It was a fun year, a year of change, he said. Since then, Morrissette has guided the nonprofit organization through its transition as a regional chamber and through its own financial difficulties. We went through the greatest recession since the Great Depression and are still here holding our own, and back to where we were before the recession, he said.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerBe Your Own Best Advocate.Many seniors today live alone in their communities as their children live and work in other areas. Although the children may visit often, typically they are not present when it comes time for mom or dads doctors visits or other appointments they attend for their well being. One of the most difficult things for patients, is knowing how to ask questions of a doctor. You owe it to yourself to ask these questions, especially when it comes to prescribed medications. Take a list of your current medications and vitamin intake along with you. It is important to review each drug recommended and learn of all the side effects that are a possibility. Because time is limited it is important to make a list of any questions you have pertaining to your health so you are sure to get your answers before walking out the door. Jot down the answers if you fear you may not remember them. Invite a friend or caregiver you trust to go along with you for support. This person does not need to speak for you but their presence may ensure that someone is caring for you. This relative or friend can help you remember the key points made by your doctor.If you're not sure you understand what is happening, ask questions until you feel comfortable. It is important to know all of your options when diagnosed with a problem. If tests are recommended, be sure to ask what they entail so you are comfortable if you choose to go forward with them. Learn if there are side effects to these tests. It is quite normal to feel worried about speaking frankly with your doctor, but your doctor will be able to be more sensitive to your needs if you inform him of your concerns. He or she is there to help you with all of your medical concerns. It is important to be assertive and to gather all the knowledge you can regarding your health.

4A Community Leader, February 20, 2014Residents asked to conserve water as utilities project concludes By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County asked residents to conserve water for 10 days, Feb. 18-28 while workers install a new meter at the Keller pump station located off Keystone Road in Tarpon Springs. Its a complex construction. Welders will be working around the clock, said Kevin Becotte, plant operations manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructures Water and Sewer Division. The work is part of two major construction projects designed to help stabilize pressure and improve the quality of the countys drinking water supply. Pinellas County is collaborating with Tampa Bay Water. Plans for the work began in 2011. The first project is replacement of the Keller pump station, which is more than 50 years old. The second is installation of a half-mile pipeline where water from Tampa Bay Water and Eldridge-Wilde wellfields will be blended before entering the countys system. Currently, workers are installing a new meter on a 66-inch pipeline. To do the job, Utilities had to shut off the main pipeline. A temporary pipe is carrying the load, but its a smaller diameter pipe, meaning it cant deliver as many gallons of water per day. To make up the difference and keep the water flowing, the city of St. Petersburg will supplement the water coming from the Eldridge-Wilde wellfields and Tampa Bay Waters regional supply. The Eldridge-Wilde property, located in Pinellas but owned by Tampa Bay Water, has about 24 wells that pump into the water supply system. Becotte doesnt anticipate any problems while the meter is being installed. Still, water conservation by the public would help ensure there was enough water for everyone over the 10 days. He asked that people delay activities that would require large quantities of water, such as refilling swimming pools or pressure cleaning. People also are asked to refrain from lawn watering, car washing, installing new sod/landscaping and operating fountains. Becotte pointed out that conservation in daily use, such as not leaving the water running while brushing teeth, shaving, washing dishes and reducing shower time would be helpful. We expect to have enough volume to supply everybody, he said. Well be OK. Utilities had scheduled to do the work two week ago, but due to faulty equipment a valve that would not shut properly installation of the new meter was delayed. Becotte said the operation was well planned. He described the collaborative effort between the county, Tampa Bay Water, the contractor and engineer throughout the construction process as fantastic. The whole project will benefit Pinellas County, he said. The new pump station is more efficient. It will use less electricity. The water quality will be better. In addition, maintenance cost will be less for the station due to availability of parts. The old pump station is over 50 years old. We were fabricating replacement parts because they dont make them anymore, Becotte said. Utilities has contingency plans in place just in case something goes wrong with the current project. TBN graphicPinellas County Utilities is asking the public to conserve water through Feb. 28 while workers install a new meter at the Keller Pump Station in Tarpon Springs.central Pinellas, that we have a very diversified economy. The strategic planning to steer the chamber in a new direction began in 2006, transitioning to the new name that linked it to that vibrant central area in 2010. The Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce currently has a membership of 465 companies and boasts a 82 to 83 percent membership retention, higher than the state industry norm. Morrissette would like to see that increase to 85 percent retention by the end of the year. To him, thats the number that counts, as an indicator that the organization is providing a return on investment for the businesses it serves. The regionalization process is still in progress, he said. The chamber has always attracted businesses outside the boundaries of Largo, even as far as Tampa. This kind of locked it up more and said, This is who we are, Morrissette explained. Some people think like government, that we have a fence Thats not the nature of any organization, especially chambers of commerce. Businesses go where they can do more business, he said. The chamber has to evolve with the businesses it supports. Our money comes from businesses that say, We support what the chamber is doing; this is a great way for us to enhance our customer base, and we want to be a part of what theyre all about, Morrissette said. If were not providing the services and the programs and the opportunities, theyre not going to sign that check. Small businesses especially have to see an obvious return on investment in order to justify the expense of membership, he said. For a chamber thats only run by Morrissette, two full-time and one parttime employees and its great volunteer base, the organization offers a lot of useful programming, Morrissette said. Other chambers have mimicked some of those programs, including the women in business council and the chambers leads groups. Each of the four leads groups meet twice a month, either for lunch or breakfast, at Fat Cat Tavern, Alfanos Restaurant, Village Inn and Proino Breakfast Club, respectively. Members pay an extra fee to be part of the group, as its sole banker or Realtor, for example. The groups develop relationships and share referrals among themselves. Some of them have been really big referrals that have turned into business, Morrissette said. For chamber campaigns, like the upcoming membership drive, the members pit themselves against the other lead groups, Morrissette explained. Its, Were not going to let Fat Cat take us! Were going to make sure we get more members than Fat Cat did. Its become this camaraderie within the groups and competition among the groups, he said. Its really fun. Im enjoying it a lot. Morrissette hopes that the membership campaign will pave the way for a fifth leads group. The problem will be scheduling yet another regular meeting on the chambers busy calendar. Its scary how much were doing, he admitted. Every day, weve got something going on. The chamber has seen more and more involvement in events like its business happy hours, he said. When he first started working at the chamber, businesses were enamored with the novelty of social media. While I think thats important and it has its place, a lot of people were using it as The Place, because it was new, and it was shiny, Morrissette said, explaining that a mix of social media and face-to-face connections is vital. The chambers provide the opportunity to get out and say, I know you, I met them, I like them. Social media cant provide that. Despite his slammed schedule, Morrissette said he loves his job because of the people. Youre never going to do the same thing, day in or day out. Its always something different, he said. I didnt want to be tied down and doing the same thing. Ten years is certainly not a full term for Morrissette, who served 15 years as communications manager of the Worcester Area Chamber of Commerce in Massachusetts. His mentor, the late Bill Short, who was living in Seminole when he died at age 70 years later, hired him for the job. Before joining the chamber world, Morrissette was working as a Massachusetts bureau chief for the Woonsocket Call, a daily Rhode Island newspaper, where he had worked as a paperboy in his hometown. Morrissette, a journalism graduate of the University of Rhode Island, had his roots in news radio and admitted during his interview with Short that he knew absolutely nothing about chambers. But that honesty eventually got him the job, in February 1986, as head of a new communications department at the 4,300-member chamber at age 24. Short taught him everything he knows about chamber work, Morrissette said, including patience. He always told him, Good always comes to the top. Sounder minds prevail. Morrissette already is anticipating what role the chamber might play in the region into the future. We have to redefine where we are and where were going, he said. The central Pinellas area isnt completely defined by tourism like the beaches are, he said. Rather its already home to several vibrant medical, manufacturing and technology companies that most residents, who arent earning the good wages those jobs provide, arent aware of. How do we tell their success stories? he asked. We have to promote ourselves in a way that sets us up for the next 10 to 20 years. The goal of the chamber has to be defining the area as a niche market that will attract more businesses offering high-paying jobs in emerging technologies. Part of that future outlook will be joining the conversation about the future of transit in Pinellas County. The chamber and its economic development committee will be hosting forums for the community to discuss those questions, specifically about Greenlight Pinellas and the proposed 1-cent sales tax that will pay for it. Improved transit is vital to the success of the region, Morrissette said. Our alternative is to cover Pinellas County in asphalt, he said. Morrissette credits his success to his staff: Cindy Paquin, the communications and events director who has been with the chamber almost as long as he has; Kathy Pabst Robshaw, the membership development director and Cathy Bosko, member services and sales consultant.

But special area plan and there are more than one in Largo doesnt help the downtown areas. Toward the end of the meeting, Commissioner Harriet Crozier said that Delgado had brought up a good point about signs. Shes right. There is nothing, she commented. The city has redevelopment districts designated for the area West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road, but they dont include any plans for new signs. Crozier recalled that the city had removed a clock tower in the area. A new clock tower at the start of West Bay Drive could welcome drivers to Largo, she said, asking the community development department to come up with a plan. I think we should have something in the budget, she said. We should say something. Commissioner Jamie Robinson agreed. As the manager of the Largo Feed & Garden Supply at 210 W. Bay Drive a business that has been around before the city of Largo was founded Robinson said he saw the confusion firsthand. As soon as I say downtown Largo, its like telling them were at Mars. They dont have any idea where thats at, he said. If theres anything we can do to promote that area, like were doing with all the rest of these areas, I would appreciate that. Commissioner Woody Brown said his own children would personally miss Dolcinis. While admitting a bias as both a business owner and resident of downtown, he said that people in that area feel as though the city has moved out of the area, withdrawing city-sponsored events like the Saturday market and Friday night music from the area. Weve been talking a lot about redeveloping downtown, while pulling our services out of downtown. Id like to, as the economy turns around, pay attention to that area thats been a little bit neglected, he said. Community development staff was charged with coming up with a plan to highlight the downtown area.Plein Aire Cottage artists blend beautifully on Indian Rocks Beach By BRIAN GOFFINDIAN ROCKS BEACH A familiar sight along Gulf Boulevard at any time during the year is the sight of three women with their canvas and easels; painting whatever is in their sight. The three are old friends and they paint together constantly. They are the Plein Aire Cottage artists and are as much a part of Indian Rocks Beach as the beach itself. Plein Aire is a genre of painting, which loosely means outside or in front of you or on location. And that is why the women are so often seen. There is no indoor studio work or painting from a photograph for them. Two of the women, Mary Rose Holmes and Helen Tilston, live in Indian Rocks Beach. The third, Violetta Chandler, lives in Sarasota. Trips to IRB are frequent for her because the women paint almost exclusively in the community. It is the historic quality of Indian Rocks Beach that attracts us, said Holmes. There are not many old style seaside towns left in Florida. IRB is real inclusive. We have 22 beach entrances, and everybody is invited to the beach. I think weve painted every one of the beach accesses. That is where the name cottage comes from for this group. Near every beach access are cottages, which struck the eyes of the three women. We started painting together just around the time those cottages were being demolished, said Tilston. We started painting them because people didnt want to lose them; they wanted to save the cottages. We didnt want to lose history. Holmes, who was born in Sanford, recalls when the three of them began painting the cottages. Soon after we met we began painting in IRB, she said. It was right around the time all the cottages were disappearing. I remember the Scruggs cottage. It was empty, ready to be demolished. The furniture was already sold and we began painting it to save it for prosperity and to show the beauty of the cottages. It turns out they did more than just save the cottages for prosperity. They had a hand in actually saving them for real. Someone said to us you cant save the cottage by painting it, but people began to buy our paintings and go to Commission meetings, said Holmes. The mayor actually wrote us a letter saying we turned a light on in IRB. Eventually the recession came and the developers ran out of money and many of the cottages were saved. The three women met 15 years ago at what was then the Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo. I was teaching at the museum, teaching oil painting and Mary Rose and Helen were my students, said Chandler, 48, the youngest of the three. Tilston said shes ish, and Holmes, who said, Im the oldest but not the wisest, remember hitting it off right away. I took classes at the Museum of Art and when I first saw Violetta I thought she was our model for the night, but it turned out she was the teacher, said Tilston. Mary Rose was taking classes, too. There were 20 in the class but we seemed to click from the beginning and Violetta liked us too. Both Chandler and Holmes started painting at a young age. Chandler, who was born in the town of Tirseol in the former Soviet Union, was the youngest to begin. I have been painting since I was 4 years old, she said. My father taught me. Im a fifth generation artist; my grandfather was a mural painter. Holmes has a similar story. I was taking art classes at 6 years old, she said. My grandmother painted beach scenes on the East Coast. I can remember painting my father fishing. Tilston has a different story, which did not begin with painting but with color. I grew up in Ireland and when I was 19 I left home and travelled around a lot, she said. I got a job in knitwear. I always worked with color. As a child I designed hats that I learned from my grandmother. I worked with color and did interior design at school. Then about 30 years ago Tilston said she began to take an interest in art. I saw a painting that I liked and I bought it over time. When I made the last installment the artist came to meet me and convinced me to take up painting, which I did and Ive painted ever since. Since the three women got together they have established a niche for which they have become somewhat famous in the art community. They paint triptychs, a style whereby they see a scene they like, then each takes a third of that scene and paints it separately from the others. Then the three panels are put together to form one scene. Were the only ones who do it this way, said Tilston. We recently did eight triptychs for an art show. We understand that were the only artists that do this, sometimes husbands and wives do it, but no one else like us. We started doing them in 2009 and were the only group of artists that did them together in the world. They got us on the map, said Holmes. Monet is our hero, we love impressionism, and we blend beautifully. The women all said they have a similar style to their work but said they are different, too. Were impressionistic painters, said Tilston. Painting is like handwriting; each is a little different. People who know us can tell which of us did what painting. In IRB the Cottage artists are known for more than their art. Their love of their community is evident in their work. Weve lived here for over 20 years now, said Tilston. We fell in love with the place when we first came here, it has a heart, weve always felt that. No one else has the same community, people here seem to care and give back. The Plein Aire Cottage artists are among those who give back. Holmes said that is important. We try to do that as much as we can, she said. We support the library and the museum with the calendar that we produce every year. We support Action 2000 by giving them a painting to auction off every year and we give some money to charities, always in IRB. None of that would have been possible if three painters hadnt met and struck it off 15 years ago. They have remained friends, close friends, ever since. We are friends, very much so, said Chandler. We have traveled internationally, weve gone to Europe together and we get along very well. I enjoy those women, said Tilston. Weve become very good friends, just the energy and the friendship. We travel well together and cant ask for anything more. Were really good friends, we have good chemistry, were not competitive, we buy each others paintings, said Holmes. It happened from the very first, we laugh together, we travel together we have the best times. What an artist needs is praise, praise and more praise and we do that for each other.

Come to the Suncoast Safety Council, 455 31st St. N., St. Petersburg, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The project is comprised of representatives from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Pinellas/Pasco State Attorney and Public Defenders Office, Clerk of Courts, and the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. Operation Safe Surrender is not an amnesty program, but does offer favorable considerations from the court, often in the form of reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date as an alternative to incarceration. The program allows wanted individuals to take responsibility for their actions, stop running from the law and clear their outstanding warrants. Individuals should arrive with a valid photo ID. No weapons or children are allowed. For more information, call Sgt. Bryan Bingham at 727-582-6149.Man stabbed in botched drug dealPALM HARBOR A Holiday man was arrested for attempted murder in the second degree Feb. 14 after reportedly stabbing a man who sold him fake cocaine. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, James Jennings, 18, was charged with attempted murder in connection with the incident that occurred about 1:40 a.m. at an apartment in Palm Harbor. Deputies responded to a call about an individual being stabbed and rendered aid to Francisco Antonio Caraffa, 20, who had been stabbed multiple times. Bayflight arrived at the scene a short time later and took Caraffa to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Jennings had sold Caraffa fake narcotics (cocaine) prior to the altercation. At Caraffas residence later in the evening, he confronted Jennings about the quality of his drugs. The confrontation escalated and eventually turned physical. During the brief skirmish, Caraffa thought he had only been punched, then noticed an exorbitant amount of blood on his clothing, deputies said. It turned out he had been stabbed multiple times by Jennings. A PCSO K-9 Unit tracked Jennings not far from the original scene and took him into custody without incident. Upon questioning, Jennings admitted to the confrontation but denied stabbing Caraffa. Jennings is being held at the Pinellas County Jail without bond.Tarpon Springs man charged with child abuseTARPON SPRINGS Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit have arrested a Tarpon Springs man Feb. 12 for child abuse after he allegedly caused two fractures to a childs right leg because he was angry and frustrated over financial issues. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Joshua Clifford Spencer, 22, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. at the Sheriffs Administration Building in Largo. The crime occurred at a private residence in north Pinellas. Crimes Against Children detectives began investigating the crime after a female relative of the child reported that Spencer might have hurt the 14-month-old female. The relative also reported that the suspect had also battered her. Spencer was first arrested on the evening of Feb. 10 for domestic battery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was released on bond on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m. Through further investigation into the child abuse allegations, detectives learned the childs right leg had been fractured in two locations. The relative told deputies that the suspect was angry and frustrated over financial issues and that the two had had an argument about the matter. The unnamed relative told detectives that she had left the child in Spencers care Feb. 10 and when she returned Spencer told her that something was wrong with the babys leg. The two transported the child to the hospital for treatment. Detectives continued their investigation and Spencer responded to the Sheriffs Administration Building for an interview Feb. 12. He initially told detectives that hed fallen while holding the baby and that the babys leg had become caught underneath him. Detectives said he then admitted to handling the child in a rough manner while changing her diaper, causing the fractures to the leg. He was arrested for aggravated child abuse and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Pedestrians struck by vehicleCLEARWATER Clearwater police reported that a vehicle at Belcher Road and Drew Street struck two pedestrians on Feb. 13. They were taken to St. Josephs Hospital in Tampa. A 21-year-old man was more seriously injured, and a trauma alert was declared for him, according to a report. The other person hit was a 52-year-old woman.Man attempts to rob his own place of employmentCLEARWATER Clearwater police detectives didnt have to look far to find the man who tried to rob a Radio Shack at U.S. 19 and Sunset Point road on Feb. 12. It turned out that the suspect, Andre Trevor Puskas, 20, works there, and he showed up for his shift a little more than six hours after the robbery attempt. During the robbery, the suspect wore a ski mask and used pepper spray on an employee. He also tried to shoot her with a stun gun but ended up shooting himself in the hand. He didnt plan this very well, nor was he prepared for the unknowns, said John Brown, a Clearwater police robbery detective. Puskas of Clearwater allegedly entered the store a little after 9:30 a.m. and showed the victim that he had a stun gun tucked in his waistband. She dropped to the floor, but when she moved, he sprayed her in the eyes with pepper spray. She got up and ran out the front door to an adjacent business. She reported that she felt the stun gun pressed against her back as she tried to get away, but it apparently misfired and got the suspects hand instead. Puskas tried to get out the back door, but it was locked and he didnt have the key for it. So he, too, had to run out of the front door and ran around to the rear of the store, where he dumped his navy blue ski mask in the dumpster there. The store employee thought that it was strange that the suspect never said a word to her, almost like he did not want her to hear his voice. She also took note of his large physical description, which was 6 feet 2 inches tall and 280 pounds. Detectives had a hunch they would find their man later when 4 p.m. rolled around. The suspect was a few minutes late because of rain that day, but he still showed up for his shift. He walked in like nothing happened, Detective Brown said. Police say Puskas later admitted to detectives that he tried to rob the store, where he has worked since October. He said he needed the money to pay for car insurance and his cell phone bill. The stun gun and pepper spray were also recovered in his car. He was charged with attempted armed robbery with a weapon and was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond.Man dies from injuries suffered in crashPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police announced Feb. 12 that a man injured in a Feb. 7 crash at Park Boulevard and Belcher Road has died. Officers responded to the traffic crash about 4:20 p.m. Feb. 7 and discovered that one vehicle had overturned and the roadway was blocked. An investigation revealed that Dennis Watkins, 40, of St. Petersburg was driving a 2004 Ford F150, traveling eastbound on Park Boulevard in the left turn lane, planning to go north on Belcher Road. Matthew Cook, 56, of Pinellas Park was driving a 1998 Saturn, traveling eastbound in the center lane of Park Boulevard. Watkins lost Submit tips to Crime StoppersTo report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at www.crimestop persofpinellas.org.

The truck crashed into the drivers side door of Cooks Saturn. Both drivers suffered injuries that required their transport to area hospitals. Pinellas Park police were notified Feb. 11 that Cook had died as the result of his injuries. The continuing investigation was upgraded to a traffic fatality. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Officer Creedon at 727-541-0758.Scam alertCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department have issued a scam warning. If ones home phone or cellphone rings with a call from area codes 268, 809, 284, or 876, then it is likely a scam, unless one knows someone from Antigua, Jamaica or some other Caribbean island. Sometimes the caller leaves a message, saying that he or she has won a prize and that they want you to call them back. Other times it rings just once and the caller hangs up, the report said. The overseas area codes can be used as pay-per-call numbers, similar to 900 numbers. Consumers who have returned the calls have been reported being charged a $19.95 connection fee and an additional $9 per minute. Anyone who receives such a call is asked to call the fraud hotline at 562-4424.

The amendments were the result of work by the Contract Administration Review Team, which has been meeting since December 2012. CART was given several goals, including improving the efficiencies in the contract administration process while maintaining internal controls and accountability for staff and the parties that contract with the county, according to a staff report. The deliverables supporting his effort include establishing enterprise contract administration guiding principles; revising ordinances, policies and procedures to increase efficiencies; creating a contract administration manual; and establishing staff training program, the report said. Assistant County Attorney Dennis Long and Purchasing Director Joe Lauro provided CARTs recommendations to the commission Oct. 29, 2013. After receiving the commissions input, some recommendations were modified. A Feb. 11 public hearing was scheduled to discuss the final recommendations and approve the amendments. One amendment gives the county administrator the authority to approve change orders not exceeding 10 percent of the amount awarded by the commission or $250,000, whichever is less. Staff said the modification would greatly expedite contract closeouts and provide improved efficiency to many contract change orders that now require Board approval. The amendment also updated language to reflect current business process. It also eliminates the requirement that all contracts/instruments be filed with the Clerk of the Court. The county is working on an electronic contracts repository and automated agenda process. Contracts will continue to be filed with the Clerks office until the electronics repository is established. CART also revised most of the code governing bidder suspension and debarment so that non-performing firms could be penalized for poor performance in a more expedient and effective manner, staff said. Suspensions shall be based on documented contracting issues, such as breach of contract, vendor misrepresentation, criminal offense, fraud and conviction of a public entity crime, the report said. Long, who was attending his last commission meeting in an official capacity before his retirement, said CART had identified more serious code violations when considering reasons for a suspension. He also said the action had to relate to the vendors business, not a personal violation. He gave an example of someone being cited for a lawn watering violation, which he said would not count. Code outlining the vendors protest procedure was clarified to remove sections open to interpretation. Code governing the competitive sealed bidding process now clarifies that the county administrator can reject all bids or portions of bids. Another amendment adds advisory board members to the section of code on lobbying. Current code does not require the commission to approve rankings of firms or authorize staff to negotiate on contracts before final approval; however, historically, rankings have come to the commission as part of the process. Staff said obtaining approval on the ranking of firms conservatively adds four to six weeks to the contracting process. CART recommended eliminating commission approval except for operating agreement for the Waste to Energy Plant, Emergency Medical Services Transport and other contracts as necessary and required. The commission agreed. CART also recommended revising several longstanding procedures, which were not part of the code, but have a direct impact on the contracting process. Changes were made to the contract review process and master contract boilerplates. CART will continue its work and provide future recommendations as needed to improve the contracting process. Commissioner Norm Roche questioned how the commission would track the process of contracts in the system. Commissioner Janet Long also wanted to be informed, especially on contract extensions, so commissioners could respond to complaints from the public. County Administrator Bob LaSala said a quarterly report could be prepared. This releases some of authority of the board, Roche said. I just want to be able to monitor. Commission Chair Karen Seel thanked Attorney Long for his service. Youre a brilliant lawyer with a wicked sense of humor, she said. In other business, the commission: Unanimously approved a minor plan change for Largos West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment Plan Special Area Plan. The change allows the city to include language to provide economic and noneconomic incentives for development and job creation. Scheduled a public hearing on March 18 on Business Technology funds for the Justice Consolidated Case Management System project. Adjourned to the conference room and away from the television cameras to discuss board, council and committee appointments, as well as Vision Tourism 2025. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel explains why she could not support one of the amendments that changes approval authority. Seel recalled issues with construction on U.S. 19 and the problems caused with project extensions.

The Senate Bill, titled the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, which failed in 2013, is named after a Manatee County woman suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease. Jordan has used marijuana for medicinal purposes for more than a decade. Authorities raided her home Feb. 15, 2013 and seized marijuana plants being grown by her husband. The couple argued that the plants were used to treat her medical condition. Eventually, the Manatee County State Attorneys Office dropped charges against the couple. Tampa Senator Jeff Clemens took up the cause, filing a bill in 2013 and 2014. Clemens bill calls for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to regulate the industry and be responsible for licensing and permitting of dispensaries and farms.OpponentsOpponents of legalizing medical marijuana, including state Attorney General Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott, argue that marijuana is illegal according to federal law. Bondi filed a motion with the state Supreme Court in January trying to keep the constitutional amendment off the ballot. She argued that the ballot title and summary was misleading. The Supreme Court subsequently approved the ballot title, Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions, and the summary, which says, Allows the medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers.

The citys prime gulf-front park reopened Feb. 14. The new look features upgrades to the lighting, restrooms, decking and parking lots and additional windows for the Snack Shack cabin. A dramatic highlight is a row of date palms illuminated with turtle friendly lights that will change with the nesting season. City Manager Shane Crawford announced the parks opening at the Feb. 11 City Commission meeting. Weve had nothing but compliments on the park, he said. One park attraction that beachgoers will have to do without for a while is the Snack Shack. The popular eatery serves up beach food and beverages, and will have a redone interior when it opens for business in 45 to 60 days. Plans for the Snack Shack include breakfast, lunch and dinner operations, and acoustic entertainment in the evening. United Park Services will run the Snack Shack as well as the beach and cabana chair rental at Archibald Park. The company also manages concessions at Fort De Soto Park and Manatee Beach Park on Anna Maria Island.

OR Attorney General settles with Pinellas-based businessTALLAHASSEE Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Feb. 14 that claim forms had been mailed to more than 17,000 Florida consumers who were allegedly billed for unauthorized charges on their telephone bills by DADATA Inc., a Pinellas Countybased company, and its client companies.

The agreement requires the companies to refund all charges billed since July 1, 2009 to eligible Florida customers who did not consent to the service for which they were charged. Refunds may total approximately $2.3 million depending on the number of claims made. Individual refund checks are estimated to average $134, and they may be as high as $700. Claim forms must be submitted by April 12. Additionally, claim forms may be printed out for mailing, or the form may be completed and submitted online.

Then, his mother succumbed to cancer. Not long after that, his brother died from a heart attack. I would wake up and feel like I had no purpose, Speakman said. But things slowly got better. He bought the London Bus Pub with his friend and business partner, Brad Doran. He also began making horror movies, including last summers House Guest, with a pair of local filmmaker brothers, Brian and Jake Jalbert, and found he had a knack for playing the bad guy. It saved me, Speakman said. Between the Bus and meeting Brian and doing movies. I think its the main reason Im still here. Speakman and Doran met while hanging out at the Angry Pepper. Speakman was considering a move to Bradenton at the time, but the two would talk about what it would be like if they opened up their own bar. When the longtime owners of the London Bus Pub put the business up for sale, Doran and Speakman jumped at the chance to buy it. That business has been there over 41 years, Doran said. Its roots go that far back in the community. The community was their primary motivation for buying the restaurant they wanted to give back, Speakman said. He rattled down the list of charities and causes that have benefitted from fundraisers theyve organized: breast cancer awareness and research, pitbull rescue efforts, The Wounded Warrior Project, No Child Goes Hungry. The pair also wanted to create a friendly atmosphere, a second home. Its a Cheers atmosphere, Speakman said. Hey, how you doing? Everybody knows each others name. Then a chance encounter with Brian at a local Subway fast food restaurant led him in a different direction. Speakman overheard Brian talking with friends about shooting a movie. Intrigued, Speakman stopped to chat. The Jalbert brothers, Boca Ciega High School graduates, filmed weddings through their company Iyrus Entertainment by day, and made action and horror movies in their free time. Speakman had always been interested in acting. After all, he had spent 27 years with the Sheriffs Office, where acting was an integral part of his job as an undercover detective. He expressed an interest in working on one of Brians films and the two exchanged contact information. Their first project together was a short film, Love Struck. This is when they realized Speakman had a knack for playing the bad guy. He took on the role of a seedy pawn shop owner who was running drugs on the side. He was a bad dude, said Speakman, who added that roles like that come naturally to him because of his background. As an undercover cop, all I did was work with bad guys. They entered the film into the 2012 Action Film Challenge. Speakman was named Best Villain and Brian won the award for Best Actor. Next came the thriller House Guest, which premiered at Muvico in Ybor City last July. In House Guest, a group of friends gather at one of their homes only to realize a murderer terrorizing their city is one of the guests. Speakman joined the brothers as co-executive producer and funded the $3,000 needed for the budget. They also brought in Alex Vincent, the child star of the Childs Play movies. Not only did Vincent star in the film, but he wrote the script as well. Brian met Vincent, who lives in New Port Richey, after publishing an ad on Craigslist seeking local scriptwriters. Hes such a down-to-earth guy, Brian said. He wrote it, and I thought it would be cool to get him to star in it as well. The movie can be rented on Vimeo On Demand at vimeo.com/on demand/houseguest/74246288 and DVDs can be purchased online. Now theyre hard at work on their next projects, In Your Image and Seconds to Run. Seconds to Run is about a group of white trash rednecks that toy with their victims by giving them a 10-second head-start before hunting them down. Filming will begin in October. In Your Image, based on a dream Speakman had, is about two twin brothers adopted out to two different families one very loving and supPhoto courtesy of BRIAN JALBERTChilds Play actor Alex Vincent, right, scripted and starred in the film House Guest. The film was shot in Seminole and in Vincents New Port Richey home. The movie featured London Bus Pub owner Randall Speakman and was produced by Brian and Jake Jalbert. Vincent is pictured with his co-star Maylin Morera.portive, the other abusive. Each brother takes a very different path in life, and, not knowing the other exists, encounter each other later in life. I dream in vivid detail, Speakman said. Its crazy, Brian said. He made a dream come true. They passed Speakmans notes from the dream on to local scriptwriter Jim Duncan who formatted it and fixed it up. Now theyre trying to grab the attention of a big name actor to star in it. Daniel Baldwin and Ice T are two actors who have asked them to make an offer, Brian said. He also reached out to Kevin Spacey, but he received a polite email telling him that Spaceys compensation would be greater than the films entire budget of $5,000. Just the fact that he got back to us is pretty cool, though, Speakman said. For more information, visit www.houseguestfilms.com, www.face book.com/10secondstorunmovie and iyrusentertainment.com.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Protection, heart disease, stroke and chronic lower respiratory disease are among the five major causes of death in the United States. While heredity may affect ones risk for these diseases, health behaviors such as smoking, obesity, alcohol abuse and lack of physical activity play a large role in your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County offers these tips to improve your quality of life: If you use tobacco products, quit. Tobacco use is the single largest cause of preventable premature death in the nation. The DOH-Pinellas Tobacco Prevention Program offers information and resources that include the Florida Quitlines services. Call 877-U-CAN-NOW (822-6669) for information. Move more, sit less. If you are carrying too many pounds, even a modest weight loss can have a positive impact on your overall health. Healthy weight can also impact your energy levels, sleep habits, selfesteem, psychological health and health care costs. The Florida Department of Healths Healthiest Weight initiative provides resources to help you be more active. Choose healthy meal options. Healthy eating is important for all age levels. Starting with breastfeeding for infants, a lifetime of choosing nutrient-dense food and beverages will contribute to lowering risk factors for many chronic diseases and conditions. For information on menus, meal plans and healthy eating on a budget visit www.choosemyplate.gov, the U.S. Department of Agricultures nutrition site. Track your numbers. Visit your health provider to manage chronic conditions and to keep track of your blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol numbers. Follow the American Cancer Societys schedule for cancer screenings for early detection of killers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer and colorectal cancer. For information about DOH-Pinellas and links to the resources mentioned here, visit www.PinellasHealth.com. Measuring success a question with endless possibilitiesHow do you measure success? Is it the car you drive, the house or neighborhood you live in? Maybe the degree you hold or the career path you chose? For others, maybe a club status or choosing the right life partner, fulfilling a dream? This question I believe has endless possibilities. For each and everyone of us most definitely a different answer. You see, it is all a matter of perspective. What one views as success may be very, very different for another. It is truly whatever you put your whole heart into. If an education and awesome career path is your heart, then go for it all the way. If there is a dream youve been dreaming, then work hard to make that dream a reality! Every bit of it is good but lets not forget that sometimes success is overlooked as well. Most often when we speak of success it is material possessions and fame. However, success can very much be a volunteer who gives of their time to those in need but no one ever hears about. It can be a mother or father who gave up their own dreams to invest in their children. A single parent who stayed and worked several jobs to make sure their family did not go without. The person who gives beyond their means to help another. My conclusion is the heart determines the success of a person. I do not believe success can or should be measured by things. Success is an inside job. If you give your very best to your passion, your mission, your lifes work, then you are successful. Do not let anyone or anything tell you otherwise. Be your SUCCESS today!This article was provided by Laura Morelli, an orthopedic specialist at The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers, 1660 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. in Clearwater.

Call 253-4971.National Blood Supply impacted by weatherThe harsh winter weather is making blood collection difficult in parts of the country and OneBlood, the local blood center, has been called in to help out. OneBlood has already shipped blood products to various parts of the country impacted by the arctic blast and continues to be called upon to send additional shipments. Local donors are urged to donate as soon as possible to help ensure the local supply remains strong so the blood center can continue to send blood for patients in areas impacted by the relentless winter storms. While all blood types are needed, people with Rh negative type blood are in the highest demand. In addition, platelet and plasma donors also are greatly needed. January is National Blood Donor Month and the perfect time to thank blood donors for saving lives, to encourage others to follow in their footsteps and to shine the spotlight on how blood donors can target the power of their blood type to save more lives. There are eight different blood types and each one holds a unique power to save lives. OneBloods Target Your Type program gives donors the ability to learn the power of their blood type and how to donate the specific components of their blood that are most needed by area hospitals. Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type, visit www.oneblood.org.New technology helps locate lung cancerTwo BayCare hospitals Morton Plant and St. Anthonys are using GPS-like technology to help locate and biopsy lung tumors potentially leading to improved diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. Called Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy, the procedure helps physicians navigate the lungs by combining GPS-like technology with a catheter-based system to access lesions on the lung that can be hard to reach. ENB extends the reach of the bronchoscope to regions deep within the lung, said John Masson, M.D., in a press release. Masson is a Morton Plant Hospital pulmonogist. We can then find smaller lung lesions located deep in the lung for diagnostic testing and potential treatment without making an incision in the chest. Typically a patient with a spot on their lung has the options of major surgery to remove a section of the lung, bronchosocpy (which does not reach lesions deep in the lung), needle biopsy or watchful waiting. The lung navigation creates a 3D reconstruction of the lungs and creates a map, allowing the physician to find lesions that previously would have been difficult to reach and treat. Ideally, we can reach smaller lesions earlier and with a less invasive procedure, said St. Anthonys Hospital pulmonologist Vinny Samuel, M.D. This means we can find lung cancer in the early stages, thereby giving patients a better opportunity for curative treatment. Most patients treated with the lung navigation technology go home the same day with minimal discomfort. Some patients experience a mild sore throat, hoarseness, or cough following the procedure. According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2013, lung cancer deaths in both men and women will account for approximately 27 percent of all cancer deaths.

They have been learning about how inventors have used both simple and complex ideas and turned them into inventions to solve a problem or make life easier. Pictured is Bauders third-grade gifted class. Sally Burks, the gifted program teacher, transformed her classroom into a theater, with a theater curtain as a backdrop and served popcorn during presentations. First-grade through fifth-grade students researched and dressed up as the inv entor of their choice, made models of the invention and presented it. Some of their favorite inventions presented included the popsicle (child inventor), ear muffs (child inventor), the Barbie doll, roller skates, the violin, the piano, the saxophone, the submarine, the ferris wheel, the Slinky, the traffic signal, and the disposable diaper.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, February 20, 2014lessons from a female ski instructor, who I nicknamed Bulldog. She barked at me all day: Snow plow! Snow plow! Snow plow! Voil, better. Later during the lesson, as I was musing over whether the assorted bruises to my ego and my body were worth the aggravation, Bulldog gave me some hope. You come back tomorrow. I think youre starting to get your balance. No? Ellen and Bill had other plans. Go with us instead. Well take you to a bunny slope, Ellen said. Like hell. There are no bunny slopes in the Alps. I started the morning out by crashing into the ground after leaving the lift. Spent most of the day in the snow of a glacier looking up at little French kids skiing over me. But I survived and swore over several glasses of beer that I would return to Chamonix the following year and become something other than an icon for comic relief on the slopes. A year later, I was still crossing skis and performing yard sales, much to delight of other group members. There goes Germond again, bowling for skiers, Bill said. Come on, Tom, we need to get down the mountain sometime today, Ellen said. In Kitzbuhel, Austria, in 1993, the lack of snow further impeded my abilities to improve but I didnt look as wobbly as members of some Swedish ski team who were joined arm in arm while they sang the lyrics to Hey Jude for what seemed to be hours at some crazy Austrians beerhouse later that evening. By 1997, I think I was starting to get my balance. Took a downhill 37-mile ski trip to France via northern Italys system of torturous lifts that might have been built by Caesars army. We were told to bring our passports, leading me to wonder who was going to check them. Nobody unless you wanted to eat or dink something at an alpine restaurant. Never tried night skiing. However, in 2001 after the crazy Austrians plied us with alcohol and yodeling for a couple of hours, we were tempted to try night sledding. Then the crazy Austrians told us the trail was the darkened road on which we drove to get to the restaurant. We declined. Safety is not in the crazy Austrians vocabulary. By then, I think even the bulldog French ski instructor would acknowledge that I had approached the intermediate level on the ski slopes. I could get down the hill. Voil; I was happy. Recently, as I sifted through the contents of my suitcase, including a ski bib, trail maps, long underwear, headbands, goggles, and, for some reason, a bottle opener, those memories of great trips came rushing back. Reminiscing is a priceless pleasure. Im eternally grateful to Ellen, Bill and their extended family for introducing me to skiing and taking me on some great trips abroad. Cant part with my ski apparel at least not yet. It will remain in my suitcase in my cluttered closet. Right next to my racquetball bag.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tgermond@TBN weekly.com.I have found the issue that can bring America together. Republicans and Democrats, urban hipsters and country folk, corporate scions and infrequent fliers they all seem to agree: The federal government must not allow mobile phone use on planes. If the Federal Communications Commission allows airlines with properly equipped planes to open the cellphone gates on commercial flights, even Washington agrees there will be revolts in the friendly skies. On Tuesday, by a bipartisan voice vote, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed a bill, the Prohibiting In-Flight Voice Communications on Mobile Wireless Devices Act, to the House floor. Chairman Bill Shuster, a Republican from Pennsylvania and the bills author, argues that at 30,000 feet, fellow passengers do not have the option of walking away from obnoxious loudmouths. Ergo, the Department of Transportation must ban voice calls on planes. Shuster, however, does favor regulations to allow passengers to use their phones and tablets to text, send emails and work online. Hes got a catchy slogan: Tap, dont talk. Me, I feel sorry for the poor chumps at the FCC. Since 1991, the FCC has banned cellphone use on planes, lest the signals interfere with wireless networks on the ground. With the advent of technology that can prevent interference, the FCC revisited the rule. In October, the FCC ruled that passengers may leave their phones on (in airplane mode) and personal electronic devices during takeoff and landing because its mission is to regulate technology, not passenger behavior. Kudos, the public should cheer. Finally, a regulatory agency that doesnt want to overreach its authority. Shuster himself noted that it is the responsibility of the Department of Transportation, not the FCC, to make rules in the name of airline safety. Unconcerned with jurisdictional matters, however, the public has flooded the FCC with protests. According to The Associated Press, 48 percent of Americans (78 percent of frequent fliers) oppose allowing passengers to talk on their phones. I get it. As airlines try to make flights cheaper a good thing seats are closer together and service lacks even the oh-so-modest frills of yore. When flying is a chore, passengers get grumpy. Its no fun even just riding public transportation next to a bigmouth, and city bus rides dont last six hours like a cross-country flight. The flying public fears air rage incidents. That said, Americans are overreacting. The FCC conducted a study of countries that allowed cellphone use on planes in 2012; none of the 11 authorities that responded reported any cases of air rage or flight attendant interference. Most countries reported low usage and short calls, and if there were complaints, they were about the cost or interruption of service. Remember when U.S. airlines installed those pricey middle-seat phones? There were no mutinies in the sky. If the FCC allows voice calls, my guess is that U.S. airlines will prohibit or strictly limit usage. Delta and Southwest have announced their intent to just say no. Legal departments, litigious consumers and flight attendant unions should take care of the rest. I know world travelers who pay big bucks to visit countries that offer hole-in-the-floor plumbing and bus rides with barnyard animals and who nonetheless are terrified at the prospect of flying on a U.S. airline on which other passengers can make cellphone calls. Truly, we live in a golden age. Americans idea of hardship is flying safely over the entire country in six hours, with access to movies, music and their choice of news. But oh, the horrors, someone else being able to make a phone call? For this, Congress will act.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.I keep hearing about the war between the richest 1 percent of Americans and the other 99 percent of people. Tom Perkins, a Silicon Valley billionaire, recently published a letter in the Wall Street Journal. In it he compared todays vilification of Americas moguls with the Nazi persecution of Jews. He may have overstated his concern, but I think hes correct in assuming that todays War on the Wealthy does exist. I dont know much about economics, but Im able to ask questions. Following are a few that strike my mind on a Tuesday unshaven morning with a cup of coffee beside me and another 10-degree F. New England air mass hovering outside my window. How would or will I know when I reach the super-rich level? Has someone defined exactly how much wealth a person must have before he/she can be hated by the rest of us? Wed better find out, because one day there may come a knock on the door. An ominous voice will say, The latest figures are in. They show that you have crossed the line into SRT super-rich territory. Prepare to face the consequences. And what will they be? For openers, I hope both the rich and the poor will avoid violence. The rough stuff seldom helps either side. And it would be unfair to the rich guys. As a rule poor folks have more guns and know how to shoot straighter than billionaires who spend their spare time on yachts ordering their hired skippers to Bring her a few points to starboard, Kowalski. On the other hand, we all know who usually wins when the rich face the non-rich in legal proceedings involving armed assault. If super-rich is not clearly defined, how will the poor know precisely who our enemies are? What if we select someone as a target of attack, and then later discover he/she was NOT really super-rich but merely comfortable or well off? When the economic wars break out in earnest, what will some of the weapons be, on both sides? Exorbitant taxes on the wealthy immediately come to mind. But that will require action by Congress and state legislatures. Many of them are already controlled by the rich and powerful of both parties, and thats not likely to change. Economic boycotts may become a more effective weapon. Lets say that the Sigafoos Corporation, which makes most of the worlds oatmeal, is owned by a man worth $300 billion who pays his workers next to nothing. One day on the Internet, the Citizens Boycott Center sends out this message to every American: Stop buying Sigafoos Oatmeal! Within a few months, the Sigafoos Corporation has vanished. However, many other companies frightened by the Sigafoos boycott will have suddenly increased their workers wages, and are now run by CEOs whose salaries may not exceed 100 times what their janitors earn. Would such a tactic work in real life? I dont know. Its easy to concoct solutions on paper. Besides, its been pointed out that as Tom Perkins (above) climbed the slippery plutocracy pole, he created 275,000 jobs and generated more than $90 billion for persons other than himself. The Robin Hood theory of income distribution, if put into effect, would surely please those persons who received money taken from the coffers of the super-rich. But would the mathematics hold up over the long run? If, overnight, almost all of the 1-percenters financial holdings were re-distributed to families earning, say, less than $20,000 a year, would that really solve our nations inequality problems? Todays rich vs. not-rich conflict is by no means historys first example of economic imbalance. In the 40 years following the Civil War, titans such as Carnegie and Rockefeller ruled our country and ushered in the age of conspicuous consumption. Teddy Roosevelt and his trust-busters brought a peaceful end to that vulgar splurge. In contrast, France in 1789 and Russia in 1917 witnessed bloody and terrifying rearrangements of the economic order. Could such upheavals ever take place in the USA? I certainly hope not. But even the faint possibility of such events should act as a spur for our government and individual citizens to seek and find an end to this dissension. I doubt if most Americans favor the random, wholesale ransacking of the ultra-richs bank accounts. What fair-minded men and women desire is to return to the time when hard work, perseverance, some degree of talent and a level playing field assured contenders at least a 50-50 chance of achieving pay dirt and some kind of hoped-for dream. Did such an era ever really exist? Could we ever get back to it? Stay tuned.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The writer should have used I believe or I feel or think rather than provide information as facts. I do not know where the writer obtained the sources for the information but not all corroborate the science of marijuana. Smoking marijuana can be a danger to health. I base my findings on information from the National Institute of Health website, but it says nothing about DNA changes. The site also says when used heavily some of the adverse effects occur. Now to the other critique of the article. Does the writer differentiate recreational vs. medicinal use? There are certain people who would benefit from marijuana use especially those suffering from terminal illness and from chronic pain. The writer makes no mention of the benefits. It is my understanding that the present proposal that will be on the ballot is for medical use only. Possibly some cases would occur where people would abuse marijuana but for those, who suffer from the aforementioned conditions, marijuana should be a treatment. David Robinson St. PetersburgSave, restore the BiltmoreEditor: The recent town hall meeting was as lively as ever when the subject was the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Since the Town Commission agreed to stay the zoning for another 6 months, the priority becomes to find a buyer who will restore the hotel. Restoration is possible, so lets put that item on the shelf. Whats next? Even some of the naysayers said they would be agreeable for restoration if the buyers had the money, and the credentials for marketing and managing the hotel after its restoration. Until now, the town has passively waited for people to come forward with their ideas; hopes are raised and then dashed, because they cant raise the money. Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported the growth of boutique hotels (10 to 100 rooms). See article here: online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB100014241278873243265045784 65240387040304. The major hotel chains also are involved in timeshare and or condotels. Check out Clearwater Beach. Its time to think about what to put in the box. The Belleview Biltmore would be a great collection of all three under one roof. In order to make this happen, somebody on the Belleair Board of Commissioners needs to take the initiative. I would recommend Commissioner Fowler. His position on saving the hotel is unambiguous. If he or other commissioners do not think that their position is adequate enough to get the attention of top officers in the big three (Marriott, Hilton or Sheraton), then ask for assistance from the governor and his office. When the next town meeting includes the Biltmore, and this is done, its a safe bet that there will be fewer Preservationists teed off. Ken Keating Belleair The super rich versus the rest of us Drivers SeatBob Driver Voil! A suitcase full of memoriesThe best yard sale Ive ever had was in the snow. In case you didnt know, in skiing terminology, a yard sale is defined as the act of a skier losing his balance and, due to the laws of centrifugal force and gravity, unintentionally falling down, causing his or her cap, sunglasses, gloves, skis and other personal belongings to scatter on the snow or beneath it. Im an expert at this. In 1992, my yard sale in the Alps in northern Italy was so spectacular that I somehow managed to lose my lift pass in the snow. Consequently, instinct took over, and I engaged in the longest Aprs-ski ever undertaken by an ugly American abroad while my friends enjoyed most of that afternoon on the slopes. That incident came to mind recently when I was thinking about selling my ski apparel, which is tucked away in a suitcase in my closet. Havent skied since 2003, in deference to the toll that acts of jockdom have taken on my body two knee surgeries and two foot surgeries. Put an end to my days of racquetball, too. However, nostalgias powerful grip may be deluding me. Could Yard Sale Germond return to the slopes? For about 10 years I took several trips to Europe with a group called Adventures on Skis. It all started in 1991 while I was an editor for the Osceola News-Gazette in Kissimmee. A co-worker, Ellen Johnston, invited me to go on a free trip to Chamonix, France. One of the people who had signed up for the trip canceled within a few days before leaving. Though she couldnt get a refund, she was allowed to transfer her reservations for the hotels and flights to another traveler. Since I was one of the few people she knew who had a passport, Ellen called me and asked if I would like to go on the trip with her husband, Bill, and her and other members of the group. I had to be at her house, which was about 30 minutes away, in an hour. I hesitated because Id never been on skis in my life, had little winter clothing and had a heavy workload that week. But my boss said, Whats keeping you from going? Youre single, and its free. Co-workers practically pushed me out the door. I ran into the bank to get my passport out of my safe deposit box. Then I went home and threw things into the suitcase. Made it to Ellens house in about an hour. They only asked that I give the woman who had to cancel her trip some small compensation. From a pay phone at a restaurant on the road, I called my dad, who told my mother, Tommy just babbled something about being on his way to France. Two days later Im taking ski We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

Professional 010214 Sunset 5K race brings nostalgia to participants By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR There is something about Belleair and the annual Sunset 5K race that brings runners back year after year. For Larry Smart, 44, of Tampa it could be because he wins the race more often than not. Smart first entered the race two years ago and finished first overall. If the race is getting better with age, then so is Smart. Back then he won the race with a time of 16:52. His personal best at the time was 16:30 so he was disappointed with his winning time. He blamed it on the heat; the temperature at race time in 2012 was well over 70 degrees. On Feb. 15 the race time temperature was barely 60 degrees and it showed. Smart won again, this time with a time if 16:25 and once again he credited the weather with the result. It was a nice cool evening, great for running, he said. The course is great but there is a little incline toward the end that sort of takes it out of you. However Im happy with the way things The first place womens finisher in the race was Kristen Tenaglia of Seminole. She finished with a time of 17:51. That wasnt bad, Ive done better but it was pretty good, she said, I havent raced for a while but I had another girl pushing me all the way. Tenaglia, who has entered the Sunset 5K three or four other times, echoed Smarts comments about why she keeps coming back. Belleair is a beautiful city, she said. It is a good course with loveturned out. Smart also was happy with the entire event and he perhaps was able to answer some of the questions as to why runners keep coming back to Belleair. It really has to do with the course mostly, he said. This is a beautiful area, it is a very pleasant run and of course the afterparty is the best one around. Smart missed last years race because he was out of town but says he intends to come back again next year if he can.

BriefsAFIRE receives grant from PhilliesCLEARWATER The Philadelphia Phillies have awarded a grant for $7,500 to AFIRE, Serving Persons with Developmental and Intellectual Abilities. The money will be used to provide scholarships to adult day training classes and to enhance the AFIRE summer camp. AFIRE was the only Pinellas recipient during a dinner in the Diamond Club of the Citizens Bank Ball Park in Philadelphia recently. All other recipients were from the Philadelphia area. Many principal Phillies participated in this charitable event, such as team president, David Montgomery, and a majority owner, Bill Giles. The Phillies gave out $350,000 in grants during the event. The Clearwater Threshers nominated AFIRE for the grant. The Threshers donate their time to play baseball with the students of AFIREs LifeSkills classes, and it was the Threshers community relations manager, Amanda Koch, who decided to nominate AFIRE for the grant. AFIRE is managed by volunteers and operates with donations and fundraisers. This grant will enable AFIRE to serve more people in the county and accomplish its mission of enhancing the lives of this population.Register for Iron GirlCLEARWATER Registration is open for the Iron Girl 5K and half marathon race, set for Sunday, April 13, starting and finishing at Coachman Park, 301 Drew St. The half marathon begins at 7 a.m. and the 5K begins at 7:30 a.m. Cost of registration for this womens-only event is $40 through Sunday, April 6, and includes a womens-sized T-shirt, personalized bib number, finishers medal, and more. In order to have a personalize bib number, participants must register by Sunday, March 23. Cost of registry at packet pick-up locations and at the expo will be $50. There is also an option for 5K mother/daughter two-person teams. Cost is $80 until Sunday, April 6, or $100 at packet pickup locations and the expo. Runners must be at least 14 years old to participate in the half marathon. There is a four-hour cutoff time for the half marathon and one must be able to maintain an 18:18-minute per mile pace or faster for the half marathon. The 5K runners and walkers must finish in 75 minutes or less. Milestone Jewelry will present a special piece of Iron Girl jewelry to the top three finishers in each age group and top three mother/daughter teams. Strollers, inline skates, rollerblades, bicycles and dogs are not allowed on either race course at any time. There will be a post-race catered breakfast caf, professional timing and giveaways.

Tenaglia, 25, said she used the Sunset 5K as a warm up for the Gasparilla Race in Tampa, which is coming up Feb. 22. She also warms up by running more than 10 miles every day. Belleairs newly appointed director of special events, Danielle Felten, said she was pleased with the whole event. I was a little worried that something might go wrong, she said. But everything went as planned and when something did need a little tweaking the people assigned to the task did their jobs perfectly. The now renowned after-party takes place on the sports field adjacent to the Dimmitt Community Center. All those who paid the entry fee for the race get to attend the all-you-can eat, all-you-can drink free party. It is likely every one of the 1,000 runners registered would list the party as a main reason why they attend. Felten said already plans are underway for next years Sunset 5K, which will be the 13th annual.

Leader, February 20, 2014 About 1.2 million U.S. adults suffer from lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal narrows putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, causing back and leg pain. Conventional surgery for this condition involves the permanent fusion of spine bones and joints, stabilizing the spine. Although effective, fusion may eliminate the natural range of motion between these bones, possibly leading to further spine degeneration. Largo Medical Center is participating in a clinical trial that may redefine the surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis. The study focuses on a new concept in spine surgery called facet joint replacement. The clinical trial is evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational device called the ACADIAFacet Replacement System. Scott Webb, DO, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, is part of a select group throughout the U.S. taking part in this landmark study. The study is open to both male and female patients between the ages of 21 and 85 who have been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis and have had at least 6 months of conservative care; injections, medication, physical therapy, etc. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Rose A.

But we too have our winters. We can only go boating about half the time during the winter months as during the summer months. Curiously, our local dolphins seem to have a similar schedule. If you are boating along our local stretch of Intracoastal Waterway this month, you might see local bottlenose dolphins. Then again, you might not. On average, they are here about half as often in the winter as they are in the summer. That average arises from the combination of great sightings and poor sightings. You can see as many dolphins on some winter days as you would see on steamy summer days. On other winter days, you might not see any dolphins. The primary reason is that bottlenose dolphins show a type of minimigration almost regardless of the habitat in which they live. Their migrations are modest: They tend to move between different bodies of water in summer and in winter. Those who spend their summers in large bodies of water migrate into small bodies of water for the winter, and vice versa. Locally, the dolphins that inhabit the Intracoastal Waterway during the summer tend to inhabit the Gulf of Mexico during the winter. Likewise, dolphins that we do not see in the Intracoastal Waterway all summer reappear during the winter. These strident individualists are dolphin teens. Dolphin teens are the product of a small but critical maritime assembly line that produces a handful of treasured teens each year. It starts in the summer when some of the females that belong to the Johns Pass dolphin community give birth. Their previous calf must fledge in the process called weaning but has the option of leaving home right away or taking its time. Some leave as soon as the new sibling is born. Ousted older calves that take their time usually do not stay in the same social group as their mom and new sibling but stay in their vicinity, often just a bay away. Less often, the older calf continues to swim with its mom and new sibling in the same group. It varies by individual. On average, calves take two to four months to begin appearing with age-mates. Thus, most have made the jump by Christmas. That is why the dolphins you find in winter waters are particularly likely to be small intense gatherings of sleek gray individuals that are bigger than calves but smaller than adults. They are easily recognized by their signature spouts of energy, at one moment gushing around a boat in a bid to surf its wake and the next bursting with bright curiosity about whatever is happening 50 yards away. Because of their restlessness, it is hard to get a close look at them. If you could, you would see that, like Qballs picture, they have clean coats and few scars. This will change steadily for most of the males. This year, the little local assembly line only produced one treasured teen, Qball, although there were five calves born to local moms. One of the moms, Sharkey, was a first-time mom this year. She did not have a previous calf that turned into a teen when she gave birth to young Echo. The other four moms had previous calves. One of the moms, Stick, had Savannah in 2011. He was a lively sturdy kid that showed some striking adult behaviors. But he disappeared in 2012, as did most of the other calves that were born in 2011. We have no explanation for this dark outcome, only disturbing ideas. That left three older calves to turn into teens. Two were little boys Juno and Fugazi. Like other young males we know, they did not wait for their moms to give birth again, instead striking out together on their own last year. Interestingly, even though they weaned without the impetus of a new baby sibling, we found them in the general vicinity of their moms Photo by ANN WEAVERQball whizzes in and out of the water on a recent winter day like a person at a BBQ poking their head out the kitchen window to take in the action on the patio.

It was perhaps a maritime counterpart to moving out of your parents house but moving into the room over their garage. That left one more: Qball.

Its still a bit early to think were out of this current weather pattern, but even one skip in the cold front rotation has to be taken as a good sign. While the rest of the country couldnt even imagine getting some fishing in over this past weekend we were fortunate enough to get a break in the weather. With water temperatures still holding around 60 degrees, fishing still much remains a hit or miss affair. Inshore, redfish have been a reliable target on this recent full moon phase. Afternoon high tides have proven to be best, as the water has had plenty of time to warm throughout the morning hours. Mullet schools that seem nonexistent on the lower water have been coming together on the higher tides. Drifting through the schools of mullet while fan casting scented softplastic jigs has been producing quality sized redfish as well as the occasional big trout. For more consistent trout action, target spoil islands throughout the northern part of our region. Free-lining select shrimp on the hard part of the incoming tide typically on the north side of the islands has been producing steady action for trout ranging in size from 16 to 20 inches with plenty of larger fish mixed in. Offshore weve seen a big influx of mangrove snapper on during this recent full moon. Targeting ledges and artificial reefs in 30 to 50 feet water will put you in the right spot. Sending down a chum basket full of frozen shrimp will draw in a variety of fish when the current is moving. Fish with a live shrimp and a lightweight, on the same sized rod you would use for redfish. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. If the mess is any indication, its no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. Neil Simons witty dialogue, vibrant characters, timely themes and hilarious one-liners have made him a true legend of American stage comedy. The Odd Couple is one of his funniest and most popular plays.

The grouping of events runs for just one evening and one day: Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22, at Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd. The fun will kick off Friday, Feb. 21, 6 p.m., with another legendary DFAC party, according to a press release. The event will feature craft brews, live music by Nancy RayGuns and, of course, all of that incredible food. Contain It!, a multi-media installation fair, showcases the work of artists who have reworked the interior of PODS to reflect their unique take on the space. The idea is to have someone step inside each POD and feel transported into the artists imagination, said George Ann Bissett, DFACs executive director. This years presentation is being curated by Christine Renc-Carter. Featured container artists will include Nicole Abbett, Paula Pollyzoom Allen, Nathan Beard, Theo Georgiou, Moses Hensley, Shane Hoffman along with three students, Barbara Hubbard along with two students, Wes Roos, Kumpa Tawornprom and Eric Voorhis. There also will be a special installation by last years peoples choice winner, Vicky Block. Trashy Treasures is considered the Tampa Bay areas most loved art garage sale. People donate art works that theyve perhaps grown tired of, and art supplies they no longer need to DFAC. The center then offers a select group for sale by silent auction for the event Friday evening, and then prices the rest of it to sell on a first-come first-served garage sale basis on Saturday, Feb. 22. The addition of Eat It! a few years ago made the event a tasty tripleheader, said Ken Hannon, DFACs associate executive director. Food trucks for this years Eat It! will include DFACs own Stephen Decaires temporary Palm Cafe on Wheels, George Tinney BBQ and more. This year, DFAC never being an organization to rest on their laurels for too long is adding a craft beer component to the festivities. Theyre calling Brew It! Admission to the Friday night party is $5 while the exhibition will be open free to the public, Saturday, Feb. 22, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For information, call 298-DFAC or visit www.dfac.org.

PETERSBURG American Stage Theatre Company recently announced its 2014-15 season for its six main stage productions, the 30th anniversary of American Stage in the Park and a bonus production that will be a Florida premiere. American Stage offers an unforgettable theatrical journey with one Florida premiere, four area premieres, two Tony Award-winning plays, two musicals, its eighth installment of the August Wilsons Century Cycle, a Neil Simon classic and a farce by Lewis Black. This year I was interested in stories that provided social bridges to experiences and inside stories far from our own, said Todd Olson in a press release. Olson is artistic director at American Stage. The season will open with The Chosen, written by the creators of last years hit My Name is Asher Lev, and is followed by Nureyevs Eyes, a bonus production and a Florida premiere produced in conjunction with Rudolf Following is a summary of the 2014-15 season at American Stage Theatre. The Chosen, adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok, from the novel by Chaim Potok; previews Sept. 3-4; runs Sept. 528. It is 1944 set in Brooklyn, and two Jewish boys grow up five blocks and a world apart. A standing-room-only hit wherever it has played, this award-winning adaptation (from the award-winning novel) is by the same creators of last years hit My Name Is Asher Lev. The play begins when Reuven and Danny play a heated game of baseball between rival yeshivas until one is badly hurt. As their unique friendship grows, they learn important lessons about their fathers, their community, and themselves. Nureyevs Eyes, by David Rush; previews Oct. 15-16; runs Oct. 17-26. The play will be produced in conjunction with Rudolf Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. An inside story about two masters an American painter and a Russian ballet dancer and how they created a now famous set of paintings. During the 1970s, the American painter Jamie Wyeth (son of Andrew) did a series of studies and paintings of Rudolf Nureyev, the legendary ballet dancer who defected from Russia and revitalized western ballet. Written with the express permission and support of Jamie Wyeth, this brand new play by David Rush imagines what their electric encounters may have been like, what secrets were revealed about the world of painting and international dance, and how their relationship evolved changing each of them. Laughter on the 23rd Floor, by Neil Simon; previews Nov. 19-20; runs Nov. 21 through Dec. 14. Get an inside look at the writers room with Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, and other legends of early TV. Inspired by Neil Simons youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesars Your Show of Shows, the show features all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman. Radio Golf, by August Wilson; previews Jan. 21-22; runs Jan. 23 through Feb. 22, 2015. The production will be the eighth installment in American Stage Theatres August Wilson Century Cycle. Harmond Wilks is a real estate developer poised to become Pittsburghs first African-American Mayor. He is also on the verge of clinching a lucrative land deal: if the government declares the Hill District as blighted including Aunt Esthers house on 1839 Wylie a lot of federal money will be made available to Harmond and his partners. But as he steps into political prominence, his plans collide with his past, and August Wilsons 10th play shows how, in the rush to progress, the past is never too far behind. Gutenberg! The Musical!, by Scott Brown and Anthony King; starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford; previews March 11-12; runs March 13 through April 5, 2015. In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers audition for their new project a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract fulfilling their ill-advised dreams. In the Heights, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Pulitzer-winner Quiara Alegra Hudes; previews April 22-23; runs April 24 through May 17, 2015. In the Heights is Broadways Tony Award-winning Best Musical about chasing dreams and finding a true home. This exhilarating musical tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New Yorks Washington Heights neighborhood a place where the coffee from the corner coffee shop is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Its a community on the brink of change, full of hopes and dreams where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. With a gripping story and incredible music and dance, In the Heights is a groundbreaking 21st century musical and the next chapter in the classic American story. Red, by John Logan; previews May 27-28; runs May 29 through June 21, 2015. Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New Yorks famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant in his studio on the Bowery. But when the student gains the confidence to challenge the master, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, RED is the inside story of an artists ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. One Slight Hitch, by Lewis Black; previews July 8-9; runs July 10 through Aug. 2, 2015. Its Courtneys wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect. American Stage Theatre Company is a not-for-profit professional theater founded in 1977. The companys mission is to create the most satisfying live theatre in the Tampa Bay area, accessible to all members of the community.

Pittman, author of The Scent of Scandal, will discuss his work. Cost is $17 for adults and $15 for members and students. Cost includes gourmet-boxed lunch, soft drink and the talk. Attendees will learn the story of Pittmans true tell-all thriller The Scent of Scandal: Greed, Betrayal and the Worlds Most Beautiful Orchid. After its Peruvian discovery in 2002, Phragmipedium kovachii became the most rare and most sought-after orchid in the world. Prices soared to $10,000 on the black market. When one showed up at the Selby Botanical Gardens, this rare ladyslipper orchid led to search warrants, a grand jury investigation, criminal charges, and headlines around the country. Pittman, an investigative journalist, unraveled this tangled web and exposed an obsession with beauty, profit and fame that led some people to ignore everything even the law. Pittman is a native Floridian. Born in Pensacola, he graduated from Troy State University in Alabama, where his muckraking work for the student paper prompted an agitated dean to label him the most destructive force on campus. Since then he has covered a variety of newspaper beats and quite a few natural disasters, including hurricanes and wildfires. Since 1998, he has covered environmental issues for Floridas largest newspaper, the Tampa Bay Times. He has won the Waldo Proffitt Award for Distinguished Environmental Journalism in Florida four times, and twice won the top investigative reporting award from the Society of Environmental Journalists. Stories he has written for Sarasota magazine have won three first-place Charlie Awards from the Florida Magazine Association. Hes the co-author, with Matthew Waite, of Paving Paradise: Floridas Vanishing Wetlands and the Failure of No Net Loss (2009) and the author of Manatee Insanity: Inside the War Over Floridas Most Famous Endangered Species (2010), both published by the University Press of Florida. His third non-fiction book, The Scent of Scandal: Greed, Betrayal, and the Worlds Most Beautiful Orchid, was released in 2012. Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.com

Dave Mason brings Traffic Jam to Capitol TheatreCLEARWATER Audiences will have an opportunity to take a journey back to the greatest days of rock with Dave Masons sight and sound experience, Traffic Jam. Dave Masons Traffic Jam will take a detour into the Tampa Bay area Friday, Feb. 21, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist has been making music since the age of 18 when he teamed up with fellow British native Steve Winwood to form the band Traffic. Since then he has penned dozens of hits such as Feelin Alright and We Just Disagree. He has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason has been performing to sold-out audiences for years and has sold millions of recordings worldwide. Masons solo studio albums include Alone Together (1970), Dave Mason & Cass Elliot (1971), Headkeeper (1972), Its Like You Never Left (1973), Dave Mason (1974), Split Coconut (1975), Let It Flow (1977), Mariposa De Oro (1978), Old Crest on a New Wave (1980), Two Hearts (1987), Some Assembly Required (1987) and Letters 12 Notes (2008). Prior to his solo career, Masons involvement with Traffic resulted in the studio albums Mr. Fantasy (1967), Traffic (1968) and Last Exit (1969), as well as the live album Welcome to the Canteen (1971). In 2014, Mason is on the road with an exciting new project billed as Dave Masons Traffic Jam. The tour kicked off Jan. 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., and will continue through the rest of the year. The Traffic Jam concert will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967s Mr. Fantasy and 1968s Traffic albums and additional Traffic jams plus new material and classic Dave Mason music. According to a press release from the Mitch Schneider Organization, the artists publicist, Mason plans to release a new EP titled Futures Past in 2014. The EP will feature new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The EP will be available online at www.davemasonmusic.com and at Masons live shows. Renowned for such Traffic hits as Feelin Alright and Hole In My Shoe, plus his solo signature tracks We Just Disagree and Only You Know and I Know, Mason is excited to perform the music of Traffic. I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music, Mason said in a press release. And Traffic Jam aside from the obvious material will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive.

Exp. 3/15/14SWEET PEDICURE $3 OFF By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Theres a chance Florida may join the list of 20 states that have legalized the use of medical marijuana. A ballot question is scheduled to appear on the Nov. 4 ballot, asking voters to approve allowing physician-supervised use of cannabis. Bills filed in the House and Senate of the Florida Legislature Feb. 10, call for legalization of controlled use of medical marijuana. Pinellas County Commission Norm Roche, who serves on the Public Safety Coordinating Council, brought the subject up during the Feb. 11 commission meeting. He said the coordinating council was looking at what county ordinances might be affected if medical marijuana was legalized. Its a very fascinating discussion, Roche said. Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch asked about the paraphernalia ordinance enacted when he was chair in 2006. Roche said it was among those being considered. He said the sheriffs office also was looking at what county laws legalization might affect. Welch pointed out that if medical marijuana were legalized, an education campaign likely would be required to inform the public that not all marijuana use was legal.Push for legalizationUnited for Care is the backer of the constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana. The Florida Division of Elections confirmed that enough signatures had been validated to put the measure on the November ballot and the state Supreme Court approved the ballot language in January. The Florida Division of Elections reports that Pinellas County residents accounted for 76,787 of the 786,368 valid signatures favoring placing an amendment on the ballot. According to the nonprofit lobbying organization Norml, the amendment would allow doctors to recommend cannabis therapy to their patients and authorize the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. To pass, the amendment needs 60 percent approval by voters.Largo considers downtown signsCommissioners discuss ways to set apart businesses on West Bay, beyond By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The owner of a recently closed business on West Bay Drive spoke up during the Largo commission meeting Feb. 18 to ask city leaders to define the downtown area. Ahiskell Delgado owner of Dolcinis Gelato, which until this weekend was located at 325 W. Bay Drive said she only recently found out that her business was located in downtown Largo. I never saw I sign that says, Welcome to Largo, Welcome to downtown Largo. Where is downtown Largo? I dont know, she said. Other signs point to Largo Public Library, Central Park and City Hall, but nothing delineates where Largos downtown businesses and restaurants begin, she said. As she mourned the loss of her own business, she wanted to speak out to help other businesses in Largos undefined downtown area. I hope we are the grain of corn that fell on the ground, that died (and) that will bring life for the rest of the people that are there, she said. They need help. They need a lot of help. They cannot do it on their own. The meeting included a public hearing to approve the Largo Mall Activity Center Special Area Plan, designed to act as a catalyst for future economic redevelopment, according to city documents. The designation, unanimously approved by commissioners, gives framework to the area around the Largo Mall, allowing for more intense mixed-use development compared to other parts of Ulmerton Road. Assistant Community Development Director Bob Klute said the designation would allow the malls movie By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Bayhead Action Park now includes a fenced-in half-acre dog park, which will eventually include a fire hydrant drinking fountain, K9 agility items and a paw-shaped picnic table. The park, dubbed Dog Bone Run, has been enclosed with a 4-foot fence. The other dog-friendly amenities should be installed in a month or less, said parks supervisor Greg Brown. While the gate has no latch yet, Brown said hes noticed nearby residents letting their dogs play in the open space already. People have gotten the picture, he said. Its good to see theres a need there. Joe and Candi Soltau walked their 8-year-old Shih Tzu through Bayhead to the dog park the evening of Feb. 17. Encouraging little Willie to exercise was important, they said, adding that they enjoyed the atmosphere of the park. The whole neighborhood uses it, said Joe Soltau. Its pretty communal.Chamber president reflects over last 10 years See DOG PARK, page 3APhoto by JULIANA A. TORRESTom Morrissette, pictured in his Largo office, celebrated his 10th anniversary as president of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce last month. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Tom Morrissette didnt really have an end date in mind when he started with what is now called the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce 10 years ago. He didnt even have the job lined up when he moved to Tampa Bay in September 2003 with only his clothes, some dishes, pots and pans. Looking to escape the snow and try something different, he had accepted an offer for his condo in Massachusetts, sold almost everything and headed to Florida. He signed a seven-month lease on an apartment in St. Petersburg. The offer on his condo had been much higher than what he originally had bought it for at an auction, so he had some funds to burn. Morrissette, then 42, had never been to the west coast of Florida, but had some friends in the area. I played hooky for a little, checking out the beach and exploring the area, he said. I thought, if it doesnt pan out, Ill go back up north. About a year and a half prior, he had been laid off from his relatively new job as vice president of marketing for the Central Massachusetts Regional Tourism Council, a state agency that had suffered financially post-Sept. 11. After a month in Florida, he saw an ad in the newspaper for the job as president of what was then the Largo/Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and figured he could handle running a 400-member chamber. By March, Morrissette was watching sunsets from a rented cottage on Belleair Beach and marveled that he had gone from no job in Massachusetts to a great job in a completely new state in only a year. It was a fun year, a year of change, he said. Since then, Morrissette has guided the nonprofit organization through its transition as a regional chamber and through its own financial difficulties. We went through the greatest recession since the Great Depression and are still here holding our own, and back to where we were before the recession, he said.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerBe Your Own Best Advocate.Many seniors today live alone in their communities as their children live and work in other areas. Although the children may visit often, typically they are not present when it comes time for mom or dads doctors visits or other appointments they attend for their well being. One of the most difficult things for patients, is knowing how to ask questions of a doctor. You owe it to yourself to ask these questions, especially when it comes to prescribed medications. Take a list of your current medications and vitamin intake along with you. It is important to review each drug recommended and learn of all the side effects that are a possibility. Because time is limited it is important to make a list of any questions you have pertaining to your health so you are sure to get your answers before walking out the door. Jot down the answers if you fear you may not remember them. Invite a friend or caregiver you trust to go along with you for support. This person does not need to speak for you but their presence may ensure that someone is caring for you. This relative or friend can help you remember the key points made by your doctor.If you're not sure you understand what is happening, ask questions until you feel comfortable. It is important to know all of your options when diagnosed with a problem. If tests are recommended, be sure to ask what they entail so you are comfortable if you choose to go forward with them. Learn if there are side effects to these tests. It is quite normal to feel worried about speaking frankly with your doctor, but your doctor will be able to be more sensitive to your needs if you inform him of your concerns. He or she is there to help you with all of your medical concerns. It is important to be assertive and to gather all the knowledge you can regarding your health.

4A Community Leader, February 20, 2014Residents asked to conserve water as utilities project concludes By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County asked residents to conserve water for 10 days, Feb. 18-28 while workers install a new meter at the Keller pump station located off Keystone Road in Tarpon Springs. Its a complex construction. Welders will be working around the clock, said Kevin Becotte, plant operations manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructures Water and Sewer Division. The work is part of two major construction projects designed to help stabilize pressure and improve the quality of the countys drinking water supply. Pinellas County is collaborating with Tampa Bay Water. Plans for the work began in 2011. The first project is replacement of the Keller pump station, which is more than 50 years old. The second is installation of a half-mile pipeline where water from Tampa Bay Water and Eldridge-Wilde wellfields will be blended before entering the countys system. Currently, workers are installing a new meter on a 66-inch pipeline. To do the job, Utilities had to shut off the main pipeline. A temporary pipe is carrying the load, but its a smaller diameter pipe, meaning it cant deliver as many gallons of water per day. To make up the difference and keep the water flowing, the city of St. Petersburg will supplement the water coming from the Eldridge-Wilde wellfields and Tampa Bay Waters regional supply. The Eldridge-Wilde property, located in Pinellas but owned by Tampa Bay Water, has about 24 wells that pump into the water supply system. Becotte doesnt anticipate any problems while the meter is being installed. Still, water conservation by the public would help ensure there was enough water for everyone over the 10 days. He asked that people delay activities that would require large quantities of water, such as refilling swimming pools or pressure cleaning. People also are asked to refrain from lawn watering, car washing, installing new sod/landscaping and operating fountains. Becotte pointed out that conservation in daily use, such as not leaving the water running while brushing teeth, shaving, washing dishes and reducing shower time would be helpful. We expect to have enough volume to supply everybody, he said. Well be OK. Utilities had scheduled to do the work two week ago, but due to faulty equipment a valve that would not shut properly installation of the new meter was delayed. Becotte said the operation was well planned. He described the collaborative effort between the county, Tampa Bay Water, the contractor and engineer throughout the construction process as fantastic. The whole project will benefit Pinellas County, he said. The new pump station is more efficient. It will use less electricity. The water quality will be better. In addition, maintenance cost will be less for the station due to availability of parts. The old pump station is over 50 years old. We were fabricating replacement parts because they dont make them anymore, Becotte said. Utilities has contingency plans in place just in case something goes wrong with the current project. TBN graphicPinellas County Utilities is asking the public to conserve water through Feb. 28 while workers install a new meter at the Keller Pump Station in Tarpon Springs.central Pinellas, that we have a very diversified economy. The strategic planning to steer the chamber in a new direction began in 2006, transitioning to the new name that linked it to that vibrant central area in 2010. The Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce currently has a membership of 465 companies and boasts a 82 to 83 percent membership retention, higher than the state industry norm. Morrissette would like to see that increase to 85 percent retention by the end of the year. To him, thats the number that counts, as an indicator that the organization is providing a return on investment for the businesses it serves. The regionalization process is still in progress, he said. The chamber has always attracted businesses outside the boundaries of Largo, even as far as Tampa. This kind of locked it up more and said, This is who we are, Morrissette explained. Some people think like government, that we have a fence Thats not the nature of any organization, especially chambers of commerce. Businesses go where they can do more business, he said. The chamber has to evolve with the businesses it supports. Our money comes from businesses that say, We support what the chamber is doing; this is a great way for us to enhance our customer base, and we want to be a part of what theyre all about, Morrissette said. If were not providing the services and the programs and the opportunities, theyre not going to sign that check. Small businesses especially have to see an obvious return on investment in order to justify the expense of membership, he said. For a chamber thats only run by Morrissette, two full-time and one parttime employees and its great volunteer base, the organization offers a lot of useful programming, Morrissette said. Other chambers have mimicked some of those programs, including the women in business council and the chambers leads groups. Each of the four leads groups meet twice a month, either for lunch or breakfast, at Fat Cat Tavern, Alfanos Restaurant, Village Inn and Proino Breakfast Club, respectively. Members pay an extra fee to be part of the group, as its sole banker or Realtor, for example. The groups develop relationships and share referrals among themselves. Some of them have been really big referrals that have turned into business, Morrissette said. For chamber campaigns, like the upcoming membership drive, the members pit themselves against the other lead groups, Morrissette explained. Its, Were not going to let Fat Cat take us! Were going to make sure we get more members than Fat Cat did. Its become this camaraderie within the groups and competition among the groups, he said. Its really fun. Im enjoying it a lot. Morrissette hopes that the membership campaign will pave the way for a fifth leads group. The problem will be scheduling yet another regular meeting on the chambers busy calendar. Its scary how much were doing, he admitted. Every day, weve got something going on. The chamber has seen more and more involvement in events like its business happy hours, he said. When he first started working at the chamber, businesses were enamored with the novelty of social media. While I think thats important and it has its place, a lot of people were using it as The Place, because it was new, and it was shiny, Morrissette said, explaining that a mix of social media and face-to-face connections is vital. The chambers provide the opportunity to get out and say, I know you, I met them, I like them. Social media cant provide that. Despite his slammed schedule, Morrissette said he loves his job because of the people. Youre never going to do the same thing, day in or day out. Its always something different, he said. I didnt want to be tied down and doing the same thing. Ten years is certainly not a full term for Morrissette, who served 15 years as communications manager of the Worcester Area Chamber of Commerce in Massachusetts. His mentor, the late Bill Short, who was living in Seminole when he died at age 70 years later, hired him for the job. Before joining the chamber world, Morrissette was working as a Massachusetts bureau chief for the Woonsocket Call, a daily Rhode Island newspaper, where he had worked as a paperboy in his hometown. Morrissette, a journalism graduate of the University of Rhode Island, had his roots in news radio and admitted during his interview with Short that he knew absolutely nothing about chambers. But that honesty eventually got him the job, in February 1986, as head of a new communications department at the 4,300-member chamber at age 24. Short taught him everything he knows about chamber work, Morrissette said, including patience. He always told him, Good always comes to the top. Sounder minds prevail. Morrissette already is anticipating what role the chamber might play in the region into the future. We have to redefine where we are and where were going, he said. The central Pinellas area isnt completely defined by tourism like the beaches are, he said. Rather its already home to several vibrant medical, manufacturing and technology companies that most residents, who arent earning the good wages those jobs provide, arent aware of. How do we tell their success stories? he asked. We have to promote ourselves in a way that sets us up for the next 10 to 20 years. The goal of the chamber has to be defining the area as a niche market that will attract more businesses offering high-paying jobs in emerging technologies. Part of that future outlook will be joining the conversation about the future of transit in Pinellas County. The chamber and its economic development committee will be hosting forums for the community to discuss those questions, specifically about Greenlight Pinellas and the proposed 1-cent sales tax that will pay for it. Improved transit is vital to the success of the region, Morrissette said. Our alternative is to cover Pinellas County in asphalt, he said. Morrissette credits his success to his staff: Cindy Paquin, the communications and events director who has been with the chamber almost as long as he has; Kathy Pabst Robshaw, the membership development director and Cathy Bosko, member services and sales consultant.

But special area plan and there are more than one in Largo doesnt help the downtown areas. Toward the end of the meeting, Commissioner Harriet Crozier said that Delgado had brought up a good point about signs. Shes right. There is nothing, she commented. The city has redevelopment districts designated for the area West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road, but they dont include any plans for new signs. Crozier recalled that the city had removed a clock tower in the area. A new clock tower at the start of West Bay Drive could welcome drivers to Largo, she said, asking the community development department to come up with a plan. I think we should have something in the budget, she said. We should say something. Commissioner Jamie Robinson agreed. As the manager of the Largo Feed & Garden Supply at 210 W. Bay Drive a business that has been around before the city of Largo was founded Robinson said he saw the confusion firsthand. As soon as I say downtown Largo, its like telling them were at Mars. They dont have any idea where thats at, he said. If theres anything we can do to promote that area, like were doing with all the rest of these areas, I would appreciate that. Commissioner Woody Brown said his own children would personally miss Dolcinis. While admitting a bias as both a business owner and resident of downtown, he said that people in that area feel as though the city has moved out of the area, withdrawing city-sponsored events like the Saturday market and Friday night music from the area. Weve been talking a lot about redeveloping downtown, while pulling our services out of downtown. Id like to, as the economy turns around, pay attention to that area thats been a little bit neglected, he said. Community development staff was charged with coming up with a plan to highlight the downtown area.Plein Aire Cottage artists blend beautifully on Indian Rocks Beach By BRIAN GOFFINDIAN ROCKS BEACH A familiar sight along Gulf Boulevard at any time during the year is the sight of three women with their canvas and easels; painting whatever is in their sight. The three are old friends and they paint together constantly. They are the Plein Aire Cottage artists and are as much a part of Indian Rocks Beach as the beach itself. Plein Aire is a genre of painting, which loosely means outside or in front of you or on location. And that is why the women are so often seen. There is no indoor studio work or painting from a photograph for them. Two of the women, Mary Rose Holmes and Helen Tilston, live in Indian Rocks Beach. The third, Violetta Chandler, lives in Sarasota. Trips to IRB are frequent for her because the women paint almost exclusively in the community. It is the historic quality of Indian Rocks Beach that attracts us, said Holmes. There are not many old style seaside towns left in Florida. IRB is real inclusive. We have 22 beach entrances, and everybody is invited to the beach. I think weve painted every one of the beach accesses. That is where the name cottage comes from for this group. Near every beach access are cottages, which struck the eyes of the three women. We started painting together just around the time those cottages were being demolished, said Tilston. We started painting them because people didnt want to lose them; they wanted to save the cottages. We didnt want to lose history. Holmes, who was born in Sanford, recalls when the three of them began painting the cottages. Soon after we met we began painting in IRB, she said. It was right around the time all the cottages were disappearing. I remember the Scruggs cottage. It was empty, ready to be demolished. The furniture was already sold and we began painting it to save it for prosperity and to show the beauty of the cottages. It turns out they did more than just save the cottages for prosperity. They had a hand in actually saving them for real. Someone said to us you cant save the cottage by painting it, but people began to buy our paintings and go to Commission meetings, said Holmes. The mayor actually wrote us a letter saying we turned a light on in IRB. Eventually the recession came and the developers ran out of money and many of the cottages were saved. The three women met 15 years ago at what was then the Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo. I was teaching at the museum, teaching oil painting and Mary Rose and Helen were my students, said Chandler, 48, the youngest of the three. Tilston said shes ish, and Holmes, who said, Im the oldest but not the wisest, remember hitting it off right away. I took classes at the Museum of Art and when I first saw Violetta I thought she was our model for the night, but it turned out she was the teacher, said Tilston. Mary Rose was taking classes, too. There were 20 in the class but we seemed to click from the beginning and Violetta liked us too. Both Chandler and Holmes started painting at a young age. Chandler, who was born in the town of Tirseol in the former Soviet Union, was the youngest to begin. I have been painting since I was 4 years old, she said. My father taught me. Im a fifth generation artist; my grandfather was a mural painter. Holmes has a similar story. I was taking art classes at 6 years old, she said. My grandmother painted beach scenes on the East Coast. I can remember painting my father fishing. Tilston has a different story, which did not begin with painting but with color. I grew up in Ireland and when I was 19 I left home and travelled around a lot, she said. I got a job in knitwear. I always worked with color. As a child I designed hats that I learned from my grandmother. I worked with color and did interior design at school. Then about 30 years ago Tilston said she began to take an interest in art. I saw a painting that I liked and I bought it over time. When I made the last installment the artist came to meet me and convinced me to take up painting, which I did and Ive painted ever since. Since the three women got together they have established a niche for which they have become somewhat famous in the art community. They paint triptychs, a style whereby they see a scene they like, then each takes a third of that scene and paints it separately from the others. Then the three panels are put together to form one scene. Were the only ones who do it this way, said Tilston. We recently did eight triptychs for an art show. We understand that were the only artists that do this, sometimes husbands and wives do it, but no one else like us. We started doing them in 2009 and were the only group of artists that did them together in the world. They got us on the map, said Holmes. Monet is our hero, we love impressionism, and we blend beautifully. The women all said they have a similar style to their work but said they are different, too. Were impressionistic painters, said Tilston. Painting is like handwriting; each is a little different. People who know us can tell which of us did what painting. In IRB the Cottage artists are known for more than their art. Their love of their community is evident in their work. Weve lived here for over 20 years now, said Tilston. We fell in love with the place when we first came here, it has a heart, weve always felt that. No one else has the same community, people here seem to care and give back. The Plein Aire Cottage artists are among those who give back. Holmes said that is important. We try to do that as much as we can, she said. We support the library and the museum with the calendar that we produce every year. We support Action 2000 by giving them a painting to auction off every year and we give some money to charities, always in IRB. None of that would have been possible if three painters hadnt met and struck it off 15 years ago. They have remained friends, close friends, ever since. We are friends, very much so, said Chandler. We have traveled internationally, weve gone to Europe together and we get along very well. I enjoy those women, said Tilston. Weve become very good friends, just the energy and the friendship. We travel well together and cant ask for anything more. Were really good friends, we have good chemistry, were not competitive, we buy each others paintings, said Holmes. It happened from the very first, we laugh together, we travel together we have the best times. What an artist needs is praise, praise and more praise and we do that for each other.

Come to the Suncoast Safety Council, 455 31st St. N., St. Petersburg, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The project is comprised of representatives from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Pinellas/Pasco State Attorney and Public Defenders Office, Clerk of Courts, and the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. Operation Safe Surrender is not an amnesty program, but does offer favorable considerations from the court, often in the form of reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date as an alternative to incarceration. The program allows wanted individuals to take responsibility for their actions, stop running from the law and clear their outstanding warrants. Individuals should arrive with a valid photo ID. No weapons or children are allowed. For more information, call Sgt. Bryan Bingham at 727-582-6149.Man stabbed in botched drug dealPALM HARBOR A Holiday man was arrested for attempted murder in the second degree Feb. 14 after reportedly stabbing a man who sold him fake cocaine. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, James Jennings, 18, was charged with attempted murder in connection with the incident that occurred about 1:40 a.m. at an apartment in Palm Harbor. Deputies responded to a call about an individual being stabbed and rendered aid to Francisco Antonio Caraffa, 20, who had been stabbed multiple times. Bayflight arrived at the scene a short time later and took Caraffa to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Jennings had sold Caraffa fake narcotics (cocaine) prior to the altercation. At Caraffas residence later in the evening, he confronted Jennings about the quality of his drugs. The confrontation escalated and eventually turned physical. During the brief skirmish, Caraffa thought he had only been punched, then noticed an exorbitant amount of blood on his clothing, deputies said. It turned out he had been stabbed multiple times by Jennings. A PCSO K-9 Unit tracked Jennings not far from the original scene and took him into custody without incident. Upon questioning, Jennings admitted to the confrontation but denied stabbing Caraffa. Jennings is being held at the Pinellas County Jail without bond.Tarpon Springs man charged with child abuseTARPON SPRINGS Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit have arrested a Tarpon Springs man Feb. 12 for child abuse after he allegedly caused two fractures to a childs right leg because he was angry and frustrated over financial issues. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Joshua Clifford Spencer, 22, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. at the Sheriffs Administration Building in Largo. The crime occurred at a private residence in north Pinellas. Crimes Against Children detectives began investigating the crime after a female relative of the child reported that Spencer might have hurt the 14-month-old female. The relative also reported that the suspect had also battered her. Spencer was first arrested on the evening of Feb. 10 for domestic battery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was released on bond on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m. Through further investigation into the child abuse allegations, detectives learned the childs right leg had been fractured in two locations. The relative told deputies that the suspect was angry and frustrated over financial issues and that the two had had an argument about the matter. The unnamed relative told detectives that she had left the child in Spencers care Feb. 10 and when she returned Spencer told her that something was wrong with the babys leg. The two transported the child to the hospital for treatment. Detectives continued their investigation and Spencer responded to the Sheriffs Administration Building for an interview Feb. 12. He initially told detectives that hed fallen while holding the baby and that the babys leg had become caught underneath him. Detectives said he then admitted to handling the child in a rough manner while changing her diaper, causing the fractures to the leg. He was arrested for aggravated child abuse and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Pedestrians struck by vehicleCLEARWATER Clearwater police reported that a vehicle at Belcher Road and Drew Street struck two pedestrians on Feb. 13. They were taken to St. Josephs Hospital in Tampa. A 21-year-old man was more seriously injured, and a trauma alert was declared for him, according to a report. The other person hit was a 52-year-old woman.Man attempts to rob his own place of employmentCLEARWATER Clearwater police detectives didnt have to look far to find the man who tried to rob a Radio Shack at U.S. 19 and Sunset Point road on Feb. 12. It turned out that the suspect, Andre Trevor Puskas, 20, works there, and he showed up for his shift a little more than six hours after the robbery attempt. During the robbery, the suspect wore a ski mask and used pepper spray on an employee. He also tried to shoot her with a stun gun but ended up shooting himself in the hand. He didnt plan this very well, nor was he prepared for the unknowns, said John Brown, a Clearwater police robbery detective. Puskas of Clearwater allegedly entered the store a little after 9:30 a.m. and showed the victim that he had a stun gun tucked in his waistband. She dropped to the floor, but when she moved, he sprayed her in the eyes with pepper spray. She got up and ran out the front door to an adjacent business. She reported that she felt the stun gun pressed against her back as she tried to get away, but it apparently misfired and got the suspects hand instead. Puskas tried to get out the back door, but it was locked and he didnt have the key for it. So he, too, had to run out of the front door and ran around to the rear of the store, where he dumped his navy blue ski mask in the dumpster there. The store employee thought that it was strange that the suspect never said a word to her, almost like he did not want her to hear his voice. She also took note of his large physical description, which was 6 feet 2 inches tall and 280 pounds. Detectives had a hunch they would find their man later when 4 p.m. rolled around. The suspect was a few minutes late because of rain that day, but he still showed up for his shift. He walked in like nothing happened, Detective Brown said. Police say Puskas later admitted to detectives that he tried to rob the store, where he has worked since October. He said he needed the money to pay for car insurance and his cell phone bill. The stun gun and pepper spray were also recovered in his car. He was charged with attempted armed robbery with a weapon and was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond.Man dies from injuries suffered in crashPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police announced Feb. 12 that a man injured in a Feb. 7 crash at Park Boulevard and Belcher Road has died. Officers responded to the traffic crash about 4:20 p.m. Feb. 7 and discovered that one vehicle had overturned and the roadway was blocked. An investigation revealed that Dennis Watkins, 40, of St. Petersburg was driving a 2004 Ford F150, traveling eastbound on Park Boulevard in the left turn lane, planning to go north on Belcher Road. Matthew Cook, 56, of Pinellas Park was driving a 1998 Saturn, traveling eastbound in the center lane of Park Boulevard. Watkins lost Submit tips to Crime StoppersTo report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at www.crimestop persofpinellas.org.

The truck crashed into the drivers side door of Cooks Saturn. Both drivers suffered injuries that required their transport to area hospitals. Pinellas Park police were notified Feb. 11 that Cook had died as the result of his injuries. The continuing investigation was upgraded to a traffic fatality. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Officer Creedon at 727-541-0758.Scam alertCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department have issued a scam warning. If ones home phone or cellphone rings with a call from area codes 268, 809, 284, or 876, then it is likely a scam, unless one knows someone from Antigua, Jamaica or some other Caribbean island. Sometimes the caller leaves a message, saying that he or she has won a prize and that they want you to call them back. Other times it rings just once and the caller hangs up, the report said. The overseas area codes can be used as pay-per-call numbers, similar to 900 numbers. Consumers who have returned the calls have been reported being charged a $19.95 connection fee and an additional $9 per minute. Anyone who receives such a call is asked to call the fraud hotline at 562-4424.

The amendments were the result of work by the Contract Administration Review Team, which has been meeting since December 2012. CART was given several goals, including improving the efficiencies in the contract administration process while maintaining internal controls and accountability for staff and the parties that contract with the county, according to a staff report. The deliverables supporting his effort include establishing enterprise contract administration guiding principles; revising ordinances, policies and procedures to increase efficiencies; creating a contract administration manual; and establishing staff training program, the report said. Assistant County Attorney Dennis Long and Purchasing Director Joe Lauro provided CARTs recommendations to the commission Oct. 29, 2013. After receiving the commissions input, some recommendations were modified. A Feb. 11 public hearing was scheduled to discuss the final recommendations and approve the amendments. One amendment gives the county administrator the authority to approve change orders not exceeding 10 percent of the amount awarded by the commission or $250,000, whichever is less. Staff said the modification would greatly expedite contract closeouts and provide improved efficiency to many contract change orders that now require Board approval. The amendment also updated language to reflect current business process. It also eliminates the requirement that all contracts/instruments be filed with the Clerk of the Court. The county is working on an electronic contracts repository and automated agenda process. Contracts will continue to be filed with the Clerks office until the electronics repository is established. CART also revised most of the code governing bidder suspension and debarment so that non-performing firms could be penalized for poor performance in a more expedient and effective manner, staff said. Suspensions shall be based on documented contracting issues, such as breach of contract, vendor misrepresentation, criminal offense, fraud and conviction of a public entity crime, the report said. Long, who was attending his last commission meeting in an official capacity before his retirement, said CART had identified more serious code violations when considering reasons for a suspension. He also said the action had to relate to the vendors business, not a personal violation. He gave an example of someone being cited for a lawn watering violation, which he said would not count. Code outlining the vendors protest procedure was clarified to remove sections open to interpretation. Code governing the competitive sealed bidding process now clarifies that the county administrator can reject all bids or portions of bids. Another amendment adds advisory board members to the section of code on lobbying. Current code does not require the commission to approve rankings of firms or authorize staff to negotiate on contracts before final approval; however, historically, rankings have come to the commission as part of the process. Staff said obtaining approval on the ranking of firms conservatively adds four to six weeks to the contracting process. CART recommended eliminating commission approval except for operating agreement for the Waste to Energy Plant, Emergency Medical Services Transport and other contracts as necessary and required. The commission agreed. CART also recommended revising several longstanding procedures, which were not part of the code, but have a direct impact on the contracting process. Changes were made to the contract review process and master contract boilerplates. CART will continue its work and provide future recommendations as needed to improve the contracting process. Commissioner Norm Roche questioned how the commission would track the process of contracts in the system. Commissioner Janet Long also wanted to be informed, especially on contract extensions, so commissioners could respond to complaints from the public. County Administrator Bob LaSala said a quarterly report could be prepared. This releases some of authority of the board, Roche said. I just want to be able to monitor. Commission Chair Karen Seel thanked Attorney Long for his service. Youre a brilliant lawyer with a wicked sense of humor, she said. In other business, the commission: Unanimously approved a minor plan change for Largos West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment Plan Special Area Plan. The change allows the city to include language to provide economic and noneconomic incentives for development and job creation. Scheduled a public hearing on March 18 on Business Technology funds for the Justice Consolidated Case Management System project. Adjourned to the conference room and away from the television cameras to discuss board, council and committee appointments, as well as Vision Tourism 2025. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel explains why she could not support one of the amendments that changes approval authority. Seel recalled issues with construction on U.S. 19 and the problems caused with project extensions.

The Senate Bill, titled the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, which failed in 2013, is named after a Manatee County woman suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease. Jordan has used marijuana for medicinal purposes for more than a decade. Authorities raided her home Feb. 15, 2013 and seized marijuana plants being grown by her husband. The couple argued that the plants were used to treat her medical condition. Eventually, the Manatee County State Attorneys Office dropped charges against the couple. Tampa Senator Jeff Clemens took up the cause, filing a bill in 2013 and 2014. Clemens bill calls for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to regulate the industry and be responsible for licensing and permitting of dispensaries and farms.OpponentsOpponents of legalizing medical marijuana, including state Attorney General Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott, argue that marijuana is illegal according to federal law. Bondi filed a motion with the state Supreme Court in January trying to keep the constitutional amendment off the ballot. She argued that the ballot title and summary was misleading. The Supreme Court subsequently approved the ballot title, Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions, and the summary, which says, Allows the medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not authorize violations of federal law or any nonmedical use, possession or production of marijuana.ProponentsUnited for Care says on its website that marijuana is currently legal as medicine in 20 states and the District of Columbia. Information on the homepage states that marijuana has been shown to be an effective treatment for the symptoms and side effects associated with HIV/AIDS, cancer, hepatitis C, PTSD, MS and other neuromuscular disorders, glaucoma, and chronic pain. The American College of Physicians, American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, and many other associations and organizations support the availability of medicinal marijuana. The Witchs Brew Caf and Pub, 1219 Florida Ave. in Palm Harbor, is offering a monthly educational series on the subject of Hemp and Cannabis starting Tuesday, March 11, 6:30 p.m. The eight-month series scheduled on second and fourth Tuesdays continues through October.

The citys prime gulf-front park reopened Feb. 14. The new look features upgrades to the lighting, restrooms, decking and parking lots and additional windows for the Snack Shack cabin. A dramatic highlight is a row of date palms illuminated with turtle friendly lights that will change with the nesting season. City Manager Shane Crawford announced the parks opening at the Feb. 11 City Commission meeting. Weve had nothing but compliments on the park, he said. One park attraction that beachgoers will have to do without for a while is the Snack Shack. The popular eatery serves up beach food and beverages, and will have a redone interior when it opens for business in 45 to 60 days. Plans for the Snack Shack include breakfast, lunch and dinner operations, and acoustic entertainment in the evening. United Park Services will run the Snack Shack as well as the beach and cabana chair rental at Archibald Park.

OR Attorney General settles with Pinellas-based businessTALLAHASSEE Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Feb. 14 that claim forms had been mailed to more than 17,000 Florida consumers who were allegedly billed for unauthorized charges on their telephone bills by DADATA Inc., a Pinellas Countybased company, and its client companies. In December, Bondi announced a settlement with DADATA Inc. and others resolving allegations that they charged customers telephone bills for voicemail, e-fax and other services without the customers consent. The agreement requires the companies to refund all charges billed since July 1, 2009 to eligible Florida customers who did not consent to the service for which they were charged. Refunds may total approximately $2.3 million depending on the number of claims made. Individual refund checks are estimated to average $134, and they may be as high as $700. Claim forms must be submitted by April 12. Additionally, claim forms may be printed out for mailing, or the form may be completed and submitted online. Customers who previously received some credit or a refund may be eligible to file a claim for additional money. An independent claims administrator is handling the process.

Then, his mother succumbed to cancer. Not long after that, his brother died from a heart attack. I would wake up and feel like I had no purpose, Speakman said. But things slowly got better. He bought the London Bus Pub with his friend and business partner, Brad Doran. He also began making horror movies, including last summers House Guest, with a pair of local filmmaker brothers, Brian and Jake Jalbert, and found he had a knack for playing the bad guy. It saved me, Speakman said. Between the Bus and meeting Brian and doing movies. I think its the main reason Im still here. Speakman and Doran met while hanging out at the Angry Pepper. Speakman was considering a move to Bradenton at the time, but the two would talk about what it would be like if they opened up their own bar. When the longtime owners of the London Bus Pub put the business up for sale, Doran and Speakman jumped at the chance to buy it. That business has been there over 41 years, Doran said. Its roots go that far back in the community. The community was their primary motivation for buying the restaurant they wanted to give back, Speakman said. He rattled down the list of charities and causes that have benefitted from fundraisers theyve organized: breast cancer awareness and research, pitbull rescue efforts, The Wounded Warrior Project, No Child Goes Hungry. The pair also wanted to create a friendly atmosphere, a second home. Its a Cheers atmosphere, Speakman said. Hey, how you doing? Everybody knows each others name. Then a chance encounter with Brian at a local Subway fast food restaurant led him in a different direction. Speakman overheard Brian talking with friends about shooting a movie. Intrigued, Speakman stopped to chat. The Jalbert brothers, Boca Ciega High School graduates, filmed weddings through their company Iyrus Entertainment by day, and made action and horror movies in their free time. Speakman had always been interested in acting. After all, he had spent 27 years with the Sheriffs Office, where acting was an integral part of his job as an undercover detective. He expressed an interest in working on one of Brians films and the two exchanged contact information. Their first project together was a short film, Love Struck. This is when they realized Speakman had a knack for playing the bad guy. He took on the role of a seedy pawn shop owner who was running drugs on the side. He was a bad dude, said Speakman, who added that roles like that come naturally to him because of his background. As an undercover cop, all I did was work with bad guys. They entered the film into the 2012 Action Film Challenge. Speakman was named Best Villain and Brian won the award for Best Actor. Next came the thriller House Guest, which premiered at Muvico in Ybor City last July. In House Guest, a group of friends gather at one of their homes only to realize a murderer terrorizing their city is one of the guests. Speakman joined the brothers as co-executive producer and funded the $3,000 needed for the budget. They also brought in Alex Vincent, the child star of the Childs Play movies. Not only did Vincent star in the film, but he wrote the script as well. Brian met Vincent, who lives in New Port Richey, after publishing an ad on Craigslist seeking local scriptwriters. Hes such a down-to-earth guy, Brian said. He wrote it, and I thought it would be cool to get him to star in it as well. The movie can be rented on Vimeo On Demand at vimeo.com/on demand/houseguest/74246288 and DVDs can be purchased online. Now theyre hard at work on their next projects, In Your Image and Seconds to Run. Seconds to Run is about a group of white trash rednecks that toy with their victims by giving them a 10-second head-start before hunting them down. Filming will begin in October. In Your Image, based on a dream Speakman had, is about two twin brothers adopted out to two different families one very loving and supPhoto courtesy of BRIAN JALBERTChilds Play actor Alex Vincent, right, scripted and starred in the film House Guest. The film was shot in Seminole and in Vincents New Port Richey home. The movie featured London Bus Pub owner Randall Speakman and was produced by Brian and Jake Jalbert. Vincent is pictured with his co-star Maylin Morera.portive, the other abusive. Each brother takes a very different path in life, and, not knowing the other exists, encounter each other later in life. I dream in vivid detail, Speakman said. Its crazy, Brian said. He made a dream come true. They passed Speakmans notes from the dream on to local scriptwriter Jim Duncan who formatted it and fixed it up. Now theyre trying to grab the attention of a big name actor to star in it. Daniel Baldwin and Ice T are two actors who have asked them to make an offer, Brian said. He also reached out to Kevin Spacey, but he received a polite email telling him that Spaceys compensation would be greater than the films entire budget of $5,000. Just the fact that he got back to us is pretty cool, though, Speakman said. For more information, visit www.houseguestfilms.com, www.face book.com/10secondstorunmovie and iyrusentertainment.com.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Protection, heart disease, stroke and chronic lower respiratory disease are among the five major causes of death in the United States. While heredity may affect ones risk for these diseases, health behaviors such as smoking, obesity, alcohol abuse and lack of physical activity play a large role in your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County offers these tips to improve your quality of life: If you use tobacco products, quit. Tobacco use is the single largest cause of preventable premature death in the nation. The DOH-Pinellas Tobacco Prevention Program offers information and resources that include the Florida Quitlines services. Call 877-U-CAN-NOW (822-6669) for information. Move more, sit less. If you are carrying too many pounds, even a modest weight loss can have a positive impact on your overall health. Healthy weight can also impact your energy levels, sleep habits, selfesteem, psychological health and health care costs. The Florida Department of Healths Healthiest Weight initiative provides resources to help you be more active. Choose healthy meal options. Healthy eating is important for all age levels. Starting with breastfeeding for infants, a lifetime of choosing nutrient-dense food and beverages will contribute to lowering risk factors for many chronic diseases and conditions. For information on menus, meal plans and healthy eating on a budget visit www.choosemyplate.gov, the U.S. Department of Agricultures nutrition site. Track your numbers. Visit your health provider to manage chronic conditions and to keep track of your blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol numbers. Follow the American Cancer Societys schedule for cancer screenings for early detection of killers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer and colorectal cancer. For information about DOH-Pinellas and links to the resources mentioned here, visit www.PinellasHealth.com. Measuring success a question with endless possibilitiesHow do you measure success? Is it the car you drive, the house or neighborhood you live in? Maybe the degree you hold or the career path you chose? For others, maybe a club status or choosing the right life partner, fulfilling a dream? This question I believe has endless possibilities. For each and everyone of us most definitely a different answer. You see, it is all a matter of perspective. What one views as success may be very, very different for another. It is truly whatever you put your whole heart into. If an education and awesome career path is your heart, then go for it all the way. If there is a dream youve been dreaming, then work hard to make that dream a reality! Every bit of it is good but lets not forget that sometimes success is overlooked as well. Most often when we speak of success it is material possessions and fame. However, success can very much be a volunteer who gives of their time to those in need but no one ever hears about. It can be a mother or father who gave up their own dreams to invest in their children. A single parent who stayed and worked several jobs to make sure their family did not go without. The person who gives beyond their means to help another. My conclusion is the heart determines the success of a person. I do not believe success can or should be measured by things. Success is an inside job. If you give your very best to your passion, your mission, your lifes work, then you are successful. Do not let anyone or anything tell you otherwise. Be your SUCCESS today!This article was provided by Laura Morelli, an orthopedic specialist at The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers, 1660 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. in Clearwater.

Local donors are urged to donate as soon as possible to help ensure the local supply remains strong so the blood center can continue to send blood for patients in areas impacted by the relentless winter storms. While all blood types are needed, people with Rh negative type blood are in the highest demand. In addition, platelet and plasma donors also are greatly needed. January is National Blood Donor Month and the perfect time to thank blood donors for saving lives, to encourage others to follow in their footsteps and to shine the spotlight on how blood donors can target the power of their blood type to save more lives. There are eight different blood types and each one holds a unique power to save lives. OneBloods Target Your Type program gives donors the ability to learn the power of their blood type and how to donate the specific components of their blood that are most needed by area hospitals. Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type, visit www.oneblood.org.New technology helps locate lung cancerTwo BayCare hospitals Morton Plant and St. Anthonys are using GPS-like technology to help locate and biopsy lung tumors potentially leading to improved diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. Called Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy, the procedure helps physicians navigate the lungs by combining GPS-like technology with a catheter-based system to access lesions on the lung that can be hard to reach. ENB extends the reach of the bronchoscope to regions deep within the lung, said John Masson, M.D., in a press release. Masson is a Morton Plant Hospital pulmonogist. We can then find smaller lung lesions located deep in the lung for diagnostic testing and potential treatment without making an incision in the chest. Typically a patient with a spot on their lung has the options of major surgery to remove a section of the lung, bronchosocpy (which does not reach lesions deep in the lung), needle biopsy or watchful waiting. The lung navigation creates a 3D reconstruction of the lungs and creates a map, allowing the physician to find lesions that previously would have been difficult to reach and treat. Ideally, we can reach smaller lesions earlier and with a less invasive procedure, said St. Anthonys Hospital pulmonologist Vinny Samuel, M.D. This means we can find lung cancer in the early stages, thereby giving patients a better opportunity for curative treatment. Most patients treated with the lung navigation technology go home the same day with minimal discomfort. Some patients experience a mild sore throat, hoarseness, or cough following the procedure. According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2013, lung cancer deaths in both men and women will account for approximately 27 percent of all cancer deaths.

Photo courtesy of SALLY BURKSGifted Learners at Bauder Elementary have been studying Inventors & Inventions this school year. They have been learning about how inventors have used both simple and complex ideas and turned them into inventions to solve a problem or make life easier. Pictured is Bauders third-grade gifted class. Sally Burks, the gifted program teacher, transformed her classroom into a theater, with a theater curtain as a backdrop and served popcorn during presentations. First-grade through fifth-grade students researched and dressed up as the inv entor of their choice, made models of the invention and presented it. Some of their favorite inventions presented included the popsicle (child inventor), ear muffs (child inventor), the Barbie doll, roller skates, the violin, the piano, the saxophone, the submarine, the ferris wheel, the Slinky, the traffic signal, and the disposable diaper. Burks also enjoyed dressing up and acting as a different inventor each day.Inventors & Inventions School notesOutstanding school volunteers announcedIn conjunction with Florida School Volunteer Month, Pinellas County Schools recently announced the 2013-14 Outstanding School Volunteers.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, February 20, 2014lessons from a female ski instructor, who I nicknamed Bulldog. She barked at me all day: Snow plow! Snow plow! Snow plow! Voil, better. Later during the lesson, as I was musing over whether the assorted bruises to my ego and my body were worth the aggravation, Bulldog gave me some hope. You come back tomorrow. I think youre starting to get your balance. No? Ellen and Bill had other plans. Go with us instead. Well take you to a bunny slope, Ellen said. Like hell. There are no bunny slopes in the Alps. I started the morning out by crashing into the ground after leaving the lift. Spent most of the day in the snow of a glacier looking up at little French kids skiing over me. But I survived and swore over several glasses of beer that I would return to Chamonix the following year and become something other than an icon for comic relief on the slopes. A year later, I was still crossing skis and performing yard sales, much to delight of other group members. There goes Germond again, bowling for skiers, Bill said. Come on, Tom, we need to get down the mountain sometime today, Ellen said. In Kitzbuhel, Austria, in 1993, the lack of snow further impeded my abilities to improve but I didnt look as wobbly as members of some Swedish ski team who were joined arm in arm while they sang the lyrics to Hey Jude for what seemed to be hours at some crazy Austrians beerhouse later that evening. By 1997, I think I was starting to get my balance. Took a downhill 37-mile ski trip to France via northern Italys system of torturous lifts that might have been built by Caesars army. We were told to bring our passports, leading me to wonder who was going to check them. Nobody unless you wanted to eat or dink something at an alpine restaurant. Never tried night skiing. However, in 2001 after the crazy Austrians plied us with alcohol and yodeling for a couple of hours, we were tempted to try night sledding. Then the crazy Austrians told us the trail was the darkened road on which we drove to get to the restaurant. We declined. Safety is not in the crazy Austrians vocabulary. By then, I think even the bulldog French ski instructor would acknowledge that I had approached the intermediate level on the ski slopes. I could get down the hill. Voil; I was happy. Recently, as I sifted through the contents of my suitcase, including a ski bib, trail maps, long underwear, headbands, goggles, and, for some reason, a bottle opener, those memories of great trips came rushing back. Reminiscing is a priceless pleasure. Im eternally grateful to Ellen, Bill and their extended family for introducing me to skiing and taking me on some great trips abroad. Cant part with my ski apparel at least not yet. It will remain in my suitcase in my cluttered closet. Right next to my racquetball bag.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tgermond@TBN weekly.com.I have found the issue that can bring America together. Republicans and Democrats, urban hipsters and country folk, corporate scions and infrequent fliers they all seem to agree: The federal government must not allow mobile phone use on planes. If the Federal Communications Commission allows airlines with properly equipped planes to open the cellphone gates on commercial flights, even Washington agrees there will be revolts in the friendly skies. On Tuesday, by a bipartisan voice vote, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed a bill, the Prohibiting In-Flight Voice Communications on Mobile Wireless Devices Act, to the House floor. Chairman Bill Shuster, a Republican from Pennsylvania and the bills author, argues that at 30,000 feet, fellow passengers do not have the option of walking away from obnoxious loudmouths. Ergo, the Department of Transportation must ban voice calls on planes. Shuster, however, does favor regulations to allow passengers to use their phones and tablets to text, send emails and work online. Hes got a catchy slogan: Tap, dont talk. Me, I feel sorry for the poor chumps at the FCC. Since 1991, the FCC has banned cellphone use on planes, lest the signals interfere with wireless networks on the ground. With the advent of technology that can prevent interference, the FCC revisited the rule. In October, the FCC ruled that passengers may leave their phones on (in airplane mode) and personal electronic devices during takeoff and landing because its mission is to regulate technology, not passenger behavior. Kudos, the public should cheer. Finally, a regulatory agency that doesnt want to overreach its authority. Shuster himself noted that it is the responsibility of the Department of Transportation, not the FCC, to make rules in the name of airline safety. Unconcerned with jurisdictional matters, however, the public has flooded the FCC with protests. According to The Associated Press, 48 percent of Americans (78 percent of frequent fliers) oppose allowing passengers to talk on their phones. I get it. As airlines try to make flights cheaper a good thing seats are closer together and service lacks even the oh-so-modest frills of yore. When flying is a chore, passengers get grumpy. Its no fun even just riding public transportation next to a bigmouth, and city bus rides dont last six hours like a cross-country flight. The flying public fears air rage incidents. That said, Americans are overreacting. The FCC conducted a study of countries that allowed cellphone use on planes in 2012; none of the 11 authorities that responded reported any cases of air rage or flight attendant interference. Most countries reported low usage and short calls, and if there were complaints, they were about the cost or interruption of service. Remember when U.S. airlines installed those pricey middle-seat phones? There were no mutinies in the sky. If the FCC allows voice calls, my guess is that U.S. airlines will prohibit or strictly limit usage. Delta and Southwest have announced their intent to just say no. Legal departments, litigious consumers and flight attendant unions should take care of the rest. I know world travelers who pay big bucks to visit countries that offer hole-in-the-floor plumbing and bus rides with barnyard animals and who nonetheless are terrified at the prospect of flying on a U.S. airline on which other passengers can make cellphone calls. Truly, we live in a golden age. Americans idea of hardship is flying safely over the entire country in six hours, with access to movies, music and their choice of news. But oh, the horrors, someone else being able to make a phone call? For this, Congress will act.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.I keep hearing about the war between the richest 1 percent of Americans and the other 99 percent of people. Tom Perkins, a Silicon Valley billionaire, recently published a letter in the Wall Street Journal. In it he compared todays vilification of Americas moguls with the Nazi persecution of Jews. He may have overstated his concern, but I think hes correct in assuming that todays War on the Wealthy does exist. I dont know much about economics, but Im able to ask questions. Following are a few that strike my mind on a Tuesday unshaven morning with a cup of coffee beside me and another 10-degree F. New England air mass hovering outside my window. How would or will I know when I reach the super-rich level? Has someone defined exactly how much wealth a person must have before he/she can be hated by the rest of us? Wed better find out, because one day there may come a knock on the door. An ominous voice will say, The latest figures are in. They show that you have crossed the line into SRT super-rich territory. Prepare to face the consequences. And what will they be? For openers, I hope both the rich and the poor will avoid violence. The rough stuff seldom helps either side. And it would be unfair to the rich guys. As a rule poor folks have more guns and know how to shoot straighter than billionaires who spend their spare time on yachts ordering their hired skippers to Bring her a few points to starboard, Kowalski. On the other hand, we all know who usually wins when the rich face the non-rich in legal proceedings involving armed assault. If super-rich is not clearly defined, how will the poor know precisely who our enemies are? What if we select someone as a target of attack, and then later discover he/she was NOT really super-rich but merely comfortable or well off? When the economic wars break out in earnest, what will some of the weapons be, on both sides? Exorbitant taxes on the wealthy immediately come to mind. But that will require action by Congress and state legislatures. Many of them are already controlled by the rich and powerful of both parties, and thats not likely to change. Economic boycotts may become a more effective weapon. Lets say that the Sigafoos Corporation, which makes most of the worlds oatmeal, is owned by a man worth $300 billion who pays his workers next to nothing. One day on the Internet, the Citizens Boycott Center sends out this message to every American: Stop buying Sigafoos Oatmeal! Within a few months, the Sigafoos Corporation has vanished. However, many other companies frightened by the Sigafoos boycott will have suddenly increased their workers wages, and are now run by CEOs whose salaries may not exceed 100 times what their janitors earn. Would such a tactic work in real life? I dont know. Its easy to concoct solutions on paper. Besides, its been pointed out that as Tom Perkins (above) climbed the slippery plutocracy pole, he created 275,000 jobs and generated more than $90 billion for persons other than himself. The Robin Hood theory of income distribution, if put into effect, would surely please those persons who received money taken from the coffers of the super-rich. But would the mathematics hold up over the long run? If, overnight, almost all of the 1-percenters financial holdings were re-distributed to families earning, say, less than $20,000 a year, would that really solve our nations inequality problems? Todays rich vs. not-rich conflict is by no means historys first example of economic imbalance. In the 40 years following the Civil War, titans such as Carnegie and Rockefeller ruled our country and ushered in the age of conspicuous consumption. Teddy Roosevelt and his trust-busters brought a peaceful end to that vulgar splurge. In contrast, France in 1789 and Russia in 1917 witnessed bloody and terrifying rearrangements of the economic order. Could such upheavals ever take place in the USA? I certainly hope not. But even the faint possibility of such events should act as a spur for our government and individual citizens to seek and find an end to this dissension. I doubt if most Americans favor the random, wholesale ransacking of the ultra-richs bank accounts. What fair-minded men and women desire is to return to the time when hard work, perseverance, some degree of talent and a level playing field assured contenders at least a 50-50 chance of achieving pay dirt and some kind of hoped-for dream. Did such an era ever really exist? Could we ever get back to it? Stay tuned.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The writer should have used I believe or I feel or think rather than provide information as facts. I do not know where the writer obtained the sources for the information but not all corroborate the science of marijuana. Smoking marijuana can be a danger to health. I base my findings on information from the National Institute of Health website, but it says nothing about DNA changes. The site also says when used heavily some of the adverse effects occur. Now to the other critique of the article. Does the writer differentiate recreational vs. medicinal use? There are certain people who would benefit from marijuana use especially those suffering from terminal illness and from chronic pain. The writer makes no mention of the benefits. It is my understanding that the present proposal that will be on the ballot is for medical use only. Possibly some cases would occur where people would abuse marijuana but for those, who suffer from the aforementioned conditions, marijuana should be a treatment. David Robinson St. PetersburgSave, restore the BiltmoreEditor: The recent town hall meeting was as lively as ever when the subject was the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Since the Town Commission agreed to stay the zoning for another 6 months, the priority becomes to find a buyer who will restore the hotel. Restoration is possible, so lets put that item on the shelf. Whats next? Even some of the naysayers said they would be agreeable for restoration if the buyers had the money, and the credentials for marketing and managing the hotel after its restoration. Until now, the town has passively waited for people to come forward with their ideas; hopes are raised and then dashed, because they cant raise the money. Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported the growth of boutique hotels (10 to 100 rooms). See article here: online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB100014241278873243265045784 65240387040304. The major hotel chains also are involved in timeshare and or condotels. Check out Clearwater Beach. Its time to think about what to put in the box. The Belleview Biltmore would be a great collection of all three under one roof. In order to make this happen, somebody on the Belleair Board of Commissioners needs to take the initiative. I would recommend Commissioner Fowler. His position on saving the hotel is unambiguous. If he or other commissioners do not think that their position is adequate enough to get the attention of top officers in the big three (Marriott, Hilton or Sheraton), then ask for assistance from the governor and his office. When the next town meeting includes the Biltmore, and this is done, its a safe bet that there will be fewer Preservationists teed off. Ken Keating Belleair The super rich versus the rest of us Drivers SeatBob Driver Voil! A suitcase full of memoriesThe best yard sale Ive ever had was in the snow. In case you didnt know, in skiing terminology, a yard sale is defined as the act of a skier losing his balance and, due to the laws of centrifugal force and gravity, unintentionally falling down, causing his or her cap, sunglasses, gloves, skis and other personal belongings to scatter on the snow or beneath it. Im an expert at this. In 1992, my yard sale in the Alps in northern Italy was so spectacular that I somehow managed to lose my lift pass in the snow. Consequently, instinct took over, and I engaged in the longest Aprs-ski ever undertaken by an ugly American abroad while my friends enjoyed most of that afternoon on the slopes. That incident came to mind recently when I was thinking about selling my ski apparel, which is tucked away in a suitcase in my closet. Havent skied since 2003, in deference to the toll that acts of jockdom have taken on my body two knee surgeries and two foot surgeries. Put an end to my days of racquetball, too. However, nostalgias powerful grip may be deluding me. Could Yard Sale Germond return to the slopes? For about 10 years I took several trips to Europe with a group called Adventures on Skis. It all started in 1991 while I was an editor for the Osceola News-Gazette in Kissimmee. A co-worker, Ellen Johnston, invited me to go on a free trip to Chamonix, France. One of the people who had signed up for the trip canceled within a few days before leaving. Though she couldnt get a refund, she was allowed to transfer her reservations for the hotels and flights to another traveler. Since I was one of the few people she knew who had a passport, Ellen called me and asked if I would like to go on the trip with her husband, Bill, and her and other members of the group. I had to be at her house, which was about 30 minutes away, in an hour. I hesitated because Id never been on skis in my life, had little winter clothing and had a heavy workload that week. But my boss said, Whats keeping you from going? Youre single, and its free. Co-workers practically pushed me out the door. I ran into the bank to get my passport out of my safe deposit box. Then I went home and threw things into the suitcase. Made it to Ellens house in about an hour. They only asked that I give the woman who had to cancel her trip some small compensation. From a pay phone at a restaurant on the road, I called my dad, who told my mother, Tommy just babbled something about being on his way to France.

Professional 010214 Sunset 5K race brings nostalgia to participants By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR There is something about Belleair and the annual Sunset 5K race that brings runners back year after year. For Larry Smart, 44, of Tampa it could be because he wins the race more often than not. Smart first entered the race two years ago and finished first overall. If the race is getting better with age, then so is Smart. Back then he won the race with a time of 16:52. His personal best at the time was 16:30 so he was disappointed with his winning time. He blamed it on the heat; the temperature at race time in 2012 was well over 70 degrees. On Feb. 15 the race time temperature was barely 60 degrees and it showed. Smart won again, this time with a time if 16:25 and once again he credited the weather with the result. It was a nice cool evening, great for running, he said. The course is great but there is a little incline toward the end that sort of takes it out of you. However Im happy with the way things The first place womens finisher in the race was Kristen Tenaglia of Seminole. She finished with a time of 17:51. That wasnt bad, Ive done better but it was pretty good, she said, I havent raced for a while but I had another girl pushing me all the way. Tenaglia, who has entered the Sunset 5K three or four other times, echoed Smarts comments about why she keeps coming back. Belleair is a beautiful city, she said. It is a good course with loveturned out. Smart also was happy with the entire event and he perhaps was able to answer some of the questions as to why runners keep coming back to Belleair. It really has to do with the course mostly, he said. This is a beautiful area, it is a very pleasant run and of course the afterparty is the best one around. Smart missed last years race because he was out of town but says he intends to come back again next year if he can.

The Warhawks started slow, falling behind 11-0, but took a 21-19 lead into the locker room at the half. Seminole built a 12point lead in the third quarter, but North Port wasnt finished playing yet. With 30 seconds left in the game North Ports Malek Barber hit a three-pointer to tie the game at 57-57. It looked as though the Bobcats may mount a comeback, but Frain hit a threepointer with just over three seconds left on the clock to give Seminole the win 60-57.Win at the buzzerPhoto by BRIAN GOFFThe runners in Belleairs annual 5K race leave to begin the race. BriefsAFIRE receives grant from PhilliesCLEARWATER The Philadelphia Phillies have awarded a grant for $7,500 to AFIRE, Serving Persons with Developmental and Intellectual Abilities. The money will be used to provide scholarships to adult day training classes and to enhance the AFIRE summer camp. AFIRE was the only Pinellas recipient during a dinner in the Diamond Club of the Citizens Bank Ball Park in Philadelphia recently. All other recipients were from the Philadelphia area. Many principal Phillies participated in this charitable event, such as team president, David Montgomery, and a majority owner, Bill Giles. The Phillies gave out $350,000 in grants during the event. The Clearwater Threshers nominated AFIRE for the grant. The Threshers donate their time to play baseball with the students of AFIREs LifeSkills classes, and it was the Threshers community relations manager, Amanda Koch, who decided to nominate AFIRE for the grant. AFIRE is managed by volunteers and operates with donations and fundraisers. This grant will enable AFIRE to serve more people in the county and accomplish its mission of enhancing the lives of this population.Register for Iron GirlCLEARWATER Registration is open for the Iron Girl 5K and half marathon race, set for Sunday, April 13, starting and finishing at Coachman Park, 301 Drew St. The half marathon begins at 7 a.m. and the 5K begins at 7:30 a.m. Cost of registration for this womens-only event is $40 through Sunday, April 6, and includes a womens-sized T-shirt, personalized bib number, finishers medal, and more. In order to have a personalize bib number, participants must register by Sunday, March 23. Cost of registry at packet pick-up locations and at the expo will be $50. There is also an option for 5K mother/daughter two-person teams. Cost is $80 until Sunday, April 6, or $100 at packet pickup locations and the expo. Runners must be at least 14 years old to participate in the half marathon. There is a four-hour cutoff time for the half marathon and one must be able to maintain an 18:18-minute per mile pace or faster for the half marathon. The 5K runners and walkers must finish in 75 minutes or less. Milestone Jewelry will present a special piece of Iron Girl jewelry to the top three finishers in each age group and top three mother/daughter teams. Strollers, inline skates, rollerblades, bicycles and dogs are not allowed on either race course at any time. There will be a post-race catered breakfast caf, professional timing and giveaways.

Tenaglia, 25, said she used the Sunset 5K as a warm up for the Gasparilla Race in Tampa, which is coming up Feb. 22. She also warms up by running more than 10 miles every day. Belleairs newly appointed director of special events, Danielle Felten, said she was pleased with the whole event. I was a little worried that something might go wrong, she said. But everything went as planned and when something did need a little tweaking the people assigned to the task did their jobs perfectly. The now renowned after-party takes place on the sports field adjacent to the Dimmitt Community Center. All those who paid the entry fee for the race get to attend the all-you-can eat, all-you-can drink free party. It is likely every one of the 1,000 runners registered would list the party as a main reason why they attend. Felten said already plans are underway for next years Sunset 5K, which will be the 13th annual.

Leader, February 20, 2014 About 1.2 million U.S. adults suffer from lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal narrows putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, causing back and leg pain. Conventional surgery for this condition involves the permanent fusion of spine bones and joints, stabilizing the spine. Although effective, fusion may eliminate the natural range of motion between these bones, possibly leading to further spine degeneration. Largo Medical Center is participating in a clinical trial that may redefine the surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis. The study focuses on a new concept in spine surgery called facet joint replacement. The clinical trial is evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational device called the ACADIAFacet Replacement System. Scott Webb, DO, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, is part of a select group throughout the U.S. taking part in this landmark study. The study is open to both male and female patients between the ages of 21 and 85 who have been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis and have had at least 6 months of conservative care; injections, medication, physical therapy, etc. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Rose A.

But we too have our winters. We can only go boating about half the time during the winter months as during the summer months. Curiously, our local dolphins seem to have a similar schedule. If you are boating along our local stretch of Intracoastal Waterway this month, you might see local bottlenose dolphins. Then again, you might not. On average, they are here about half as often in the winter as they are in the summer. That average arises from the combination of great sightings and poor sightings. You can see as many dolphins on some winter days as you would see on steamy summer days. On other winter days, you might not see any dolphins. The primary reason is that bottlenose dolphins show a type of minimigration almost regardless of the habitat in which they live. Their migrations are modest: They tend to move between different bodies of water in summer and in winter. Those who spend their summers in large bodies of water migrate into small bodies of water for the winter, and vice versa. Locally, the dolphins that inhabit the Intracoastal Waterway during the summer tend to inhabit the Gulf of Mexico during the winter. Likewise, dolphins that we do not see in the Intracoastal Waterway all summer reappear during the winter. These strident individualists are dolphin teens. Dolphin teens are the product of a small but critical maritime assembly line that produces a handful of treasured teens each year. It starts in the summer when some of the females that belong to the Johns Pass dolphin community give birth. Their previous calf must fledge in the process called weaning but has the option of leaving home right away or taking its time. Some leave as soon as the new sibling is born. Ousted older calves that take their time usually do not stay in the same social group as their mom and new sibling but stay in their vicinity, often just a bay away. Less often, the older calf continues to swim with its mom and new sibling in the same group. It varies by individual. On average, calves take two to four months to begin appearing with age-mates. Thus, most have made the jump by Christmas. That is why the dolphins you find in winter waters are particularly likely to be small intense gatherings of sleek gray individuals that are bigger than calves but smaller than adults. They are easily recognized by their signature spouts of energy, at one moment gushing around a boat in a bid to surf its wake and the next bursting with bright curiosity about whatever is happening 50 yards away. Because of their restlessness, it is hard to get a close look at them. If you could, you would see that, like Qballs picture, they have clean coats and few scars. This will change steadily for most of the males. This year, the little local assembly line only produced one treasured teen, Qball, although there were five calves born to local moms. One of the moms, Sharkey, was a first-time mom this year. She did not have a previous calf that turned into a teen when she gave birth to young Echo. The other four moms had previous calves. One of the moms, Stick, had Savannah in 2011. He was a lively sturdy kid that showed some striking adult behaviors. But he disappeared in 2012, as did most of the other calves that were born in 2011. We have no explanation for this dark outcome, only disturbing ideas. That left three older calves to turn into teens. Two were little boys Juno and Fugazi. Like other young males we know, they did not wait for their moms to give birth again, instead striking out together on their own last year. Interestingly, even though they weaned without the impetus of a new baby sibling, we found them in the general vicinity of their moms Photo by ANN WEAVERQball whizzes in and out of the water on a recent winter day like a person at a BBQ poking their head out the kitchen window to take in the action on the patio. Local dolphins get lively in winter waters as if they can afford to generate extra heat.J and Front Slash for many months. It was perhaps a maritime counterpart to moving out of your parents house but moving into the room over their garage. That left one more: Qball.

Its still a bit early to think were out of this current weather pattern, but even one skip in the cold front rotation has to be taken as a good sign. While the rest of the country couldnt even imagine getting some fishing in over this past weekend we were fortunate enough to get a break in the weather. With water temperatures still holding around 60 degrees, fishing still much remains a hit or miss affair. Inshore, redfish have been a reliable target on this recent full moon phase. Afternoon high tides have proven to be best, as the water has had plenty of time to warm throughout the morning hours. Mullet schools that seem nonexistent on the lower water have been coming together on the higher tides. Drifting through the schools of mullet while fan casting scented softplastic jigs has been producing quality sized redfish as well as the occasional big trout. For more consistent trout action, target spoil islands throughout the northern part of our region. Free-lining select shrimp on the hard part of the incoming tide typically on the north side of the islands has been producing steady action for trout ranging in size from 16 to 20 inches with plenty of larger fish mixed in. Offshore weve seen a big influx of mangrove snapper on during this recent full moon. Targeting ledges and artificial reefs in 30 to 50 feet water will put you in the right spot. Sending down a chum basket full of frozen shrimp will draw in a variety of fish when the current is moving. Fish with a live shrimp and a lightweight, on the same sized rod you would use for redfish.

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. If the mess is any indication, its no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. Neil Simons witty dialogue, vibrant characters, timely themes and hilarious one-liners have made him a true legend of American stage comedy. The Odd Couple is one of his funniest and most popular plays.

The grouping of events runs for just one evening and one day: Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22, at Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd. The fun will kick off Friday, Feb. 21, 6 p.m., with another legendary DFAC party, according to a press release. The event will feature craft brews, live music by Nancy RayGuns and, of course, all of that incredible food. Contain It!, a multi-media installation fair, showcases the work of artists who have reworked the interior of PODS to reflect their unique take on the space.

Featured container artists will include Nicole Abbett, Paula Pollyzoom Allen, Nathan Beard, Theo Georgiou, Moses Hensley, Shane Hoffman along with three students, Barbara Hubbard along with two students, Wes Roos, Kumpa Tawornprom and Eric Voorhis. There also will be a special installation by last years peoples choice winner, Vicky Block. Trashy Treasures is considered the Tampa Bay areas most loved art garage sale. People donate art works that theyve perhaps grown tired of, and art supplies they no longer need to DFAC. The center then offers a select group for sale by silent auction for the event Friday evening, and then prices the rest of it to sell on a first-come first-served garage sale basis on Saturday, Feb. 22. The addition of Eat It! a few years ago made the event a tasty tripleheader, said Ken Hannon, DFACs associate executive director. Food trucks for this years Eat It! will include DFACs own Stephen Decaires temporary Palm Cafe on Wheels, George Tinney BBQ and more. This year, DFAC never being an organization to rest on their laurels for too long is adding a craft beer component to the festivities. Theyre calling Brew It!

PETERSBURG American Stage Theatre Company recently announced its 2014-15 season for its six main stage productions, the 30th anniversary of American Stage in the Park and a bonus production that will be a Florida premiere. American Stage offers an unforgettable theatrical journey with one Florida premiere, four area premieres, two Tony Award-winning plays, two musicals, its eighth installment of the August Wilsons Century Cycle, a Neil Simon classic and a farce by Lewis Black. This year I was interested in stories that provided social bridges to experiences and inside stories far from our own, said Todd Olson in a press release. Olson is artistic director at American Stage. The season will open with The Chosen, written by the creators of last years hit My Name is Asher Lev, and is followed by Nureyevs Eyes, a bonus production and a Florida premiere produced in conjunction with Rudolf Following is a summary of the 2014-15 season at American Stage Theatre. The Chosen, adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok, from the novel by Chaim Potok; previews Sept. 3-4; runs Sept. 528. It is 1944 set in Brooklyn, and two Jewish boys grow up five blocks and a world apart. A standing-room-only hit wherever it has played, this award-winning adaptation (from the award-winning novel) is by the same creators of last years hit My Name Is Asher Lev. The play begins when Reuven and Danny play a heated game of baseball between rival yeshivas until one is badly hurt. As their unique friendship grows, they learn important lessons about their fathers, their community, and themselves. Nureyevs Eyes, by David Rush; previews Oct. 15-16; runs Oct. 17-26. The play will be produced in conjunction with Rudolf Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. An inside story about two masters an American painter and a Russian ballet dancer and how they created a now famous set of paintings. During the 1970s, the American painter Jamie Wyeth (son of Andrew) did a series of studies and paintings of Rudolf Nureyev, the legendary ballet dancer who defected from Russia and revitalized western ballet. Written with the express permission and support of Jamie Wyeth, this brand new play by David Rush imagines what their electric encounters may have been like, what secrets were revealed about the world of painting and international dance, and how their relationship evolved changing each of them. Laughter on the 23rd Floor, by Neil Simon; previews Nov. 19-20; runs Nov. 21 through Dec. 14. Get an inside look at the writers room with Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, and other legends of early TV. Inspired by Neil Simons youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesars Your Show of Shows, the show features all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman. Radio Golf, by August Wilson; previews Jan. 21-22; runs Jan. 23 through Feb. 22, 2015. The production will be the eighth installment in American Stage Theatres August Wilson Century Cycle. Harmond Wilks is a real estate developer poised to become Pittsburghs first African-American Mayor. He is also on the verge of clinching a lucrative land deal: if the government declares the Hill District as blighted including Aunt Esthers house on 1839 Wylie a lot of federal money will be made available to Harmond and his partners. But as he steps into political prominence, his plans collide with his past, and August Wilsons 10th play shows how, in the rush to progress, the past is never too far behind. Gutenberg! The Musical!, by Scott Brown and Anthony King; starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford; previews March 11-12; runs March 13 through April 5, 2015. In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers audition for their new project a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract fulfilling their ill-advised dreams. In the Heights, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Pulitzer-winner Quiara Alegra Hudes; previews April 22-23; runs April 24 through May 17, 2015. In the Heights is Broadways Tony Award-winning Best Musical about chasing dreams and finding a true home. This exhilarating musical tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New Yorks Washington Heights neighborhood a place where the coffee from the corner coffee shop is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Its a community on the brink of change, full of hopes and dreams where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. With a gripping story and incredible music and dance, In the Heights is a groundbreaking 21st century musical and the next chapter in the classic American story. Red, by John Logan; previews May 27-28; runs May 29 through June 21, 2015. Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New Yorks famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant in his studio on the Bowery. But when the student gains the confidence to challenge the master, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, RED is the inside story of an artists ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. One Slight Hitch, by Lewis Black; previews July 8-9; runs July 10 through Aug. 2, 2015. Its Courtneys wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect. American Stage Theatre Company is a not-for-profit professional theater founded in 1977. The companys mission is to create the most satisfying live theatre in the Tampa Bay area, accessible to all members of the community. Their vision is to preserve the greatest human stories from our past, while creating the most defining stories and storytelling of our time. Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. During the holidays, American Stage will present Neil Simons Laughter on the 23rd Floor. Kicking off the new year will be the eighth installment in the August Wilsons Century Cycle, Radio Golf, followed by the hilarious musical comedy Gutenberg! The Musical! starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford.

Pittman, author of The Scent of Scandal, will discuss his work. Cost is $17 for adults and $15 for members and students. Cost includes gourmet-boxed lunch, soft drink and the talk. Attendees will learn the story of Pittmans true tell-all thriller The Scent of Scandal: Greed, Betrayal and the Worlds Most Beautiful Orchid. After its Peruvian discovery in 2002, Phragmipedium kovachii became the most rare and most sought-after orchid in the world. Prices soared to $10,000 on the black market. When one showed up at the Selby Botanical Gardens, this rare ladyslipper orchid led to search warrants, a grand jury investigation, criminal charges, and headlines around the country. Pittman, an investigative journalist, unraveled this tangled web and exposed an obsession with beauty, profit and fame that led some people to ignore everything even the law. Pittman is a native Floridian. Born in Pensacola, he graduated from Troy State University in Alabama, where his muckraking work for the student paper prompted an agitated dean to label him the most destructive force on campus. Since then he has covered a variety of newspaper beats and quite a few natural disasters, including hurricanes and wildfires. Since 1998, he has covered environmental issues for Floridas largest newspaper, the Tampa Bay Times. He has won the Waldo Proffitt Award for Distinguished Environmental Journalism in Florida four times, and twice won the top investigative reporting award from the Society of Environmental Journalists. Stories he has written for Sarasota magazine have won three first-place Charlie Awards from the Florida Magazine Association. Hes the co-author, with Matthew Waite, of Paving Paradise: Floridas Vanishing Wetlands and the Failure of No Net Loss (2009) and the author of Manatee Insanity: Inside the War Over Floridas Most Famous Endangered Species (2010), both published by the University Press of Florida. His third non-fiction book, The Scent of Scandal: Greed, Betrayal, and the Worlds Most Beautiful Orchid, was released in 2012. Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.com

Dave Mason brings Traffic Jam to Capitol TheatreCLEARWATER Audiences will have an opportunity to take a journey back to the greatest days of rock with Dave Masons sight and sound experience, Traffic Jam. Dave Masons Traffic Jam will take a detour into the Tampa Bay area Friday, Feb. 21, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist has been making music since the age of 18 when he teamed up with fellow British native Steve Winwood to form the band Traffic. Since then he has penned dozens of hits such as Feelin Alright and We Just Disagree. He has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason has been performing to sold-out audiences for years and has sold millions of recordings worldwide. Masons solo studio albums include Alone Together (1970), Dave Mason & Cass Elliot (1971), Headkeeper (1972), Its Like You Never Left (1973), Dave Mason (1974), Split Coconut (1975), Let It Flow (1977), Mariposa De Oro (1978), Old Crest on a New Wave (1980), Two Hearts (1987), Some Assembly Required (1987) and Letters 12 Notes (2008). Prior to his solo career, Masons involvement with Traffic resulted in the studio albums Mr. Fantasy (1967), Traffic (1968) and Last Exit (1969), as well as the live album Welcome to the Canteen (1971). In 2014, Mason is on the road with an exciting new project billed as Dave Masons Traffic Jam. The tour kicked off Jan. 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., and will continue through the rest of the year. The Traffic Jam concert will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967s Mr. Fantasy and 1968s Traffic albums and additional Traffic jams plus new material and classic Dave Mason music. According to a press release from the Mitch Schneider Organization, the artists publicist, Mason plans to release a new EP titled Futures Past in 2014. The EP will feature new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The EP will be available online at www.davemasonmusic.com and at Masons live shows. Renowned for such Traffic hits as Feelin Alright and Hole In My Shoe, plus his solo signature tracks We Just Disagree and Only You Know and I Know, Mason is excited to perform the music of Traffic. I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music, Mason said in a press release. And Traffic Jam aside from the obvious material will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive.
