Candidates push toward electionsThose vying for Congress address health care, budget and local issues, politics By SUZETTE PORTERWith 73,192 mail ballots returned to the Elections Office as of Feb. 21, and early voting set to begin Saturday, March 1, campaigns are in full swing for candidates looking to win Pinellas Countys District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Republican David Jolly, 41, Democrat Alex Sink, 65, and Libertarian Lucas Overby, 27, are running for the seat left vacant after C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Write-in candidate Michael S. Levinson also qualified. His name does not appear on the ballot; however, a blank appears on the ballot where voters can fill in his name. Tampa Bay Newspapers asked Jolly, Sink and Overby to answer one last round of questions to assist voters making their choices in the March 11 election. Affordable Care Act Good or bad and why. David Jolly: I believe we can improve healthcare coverage for the individual by replacing Obamacare with a smaller government model that encourages private sector solutions. We should replace Obamacare with a statutory framework that resembles that of term life insurance. A young individual can take out a policy that is priced based on their youth and health for a term certain (10, 20, 30 years). It would provide price stability, protection from cancellation due to intervening health events, would be portable, decoupled from the employer, but eligible for reimbursement by employers who choose to do so. For pre-existing conditions, we should consider a system that pre-qualifies individuals for a federal program prior to the complete elimination of the individuals personal safety net resources. Alex Sink: While the Affordable Care Act is far from perfect, we cannot go back to a time where insurance companies ran the show and could discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions. Republicans and Democrats must come together to improve the law: keep what works and fix any problems. But a radical repeal would make everyone pay more and would bring back the Medicare prescription drug donut hole for seniors. That is unacceptable. Lucas Overby: While I am willing to work with certain aspects of the ACA, such as the new consumer protection policies, I feel that in the long run the By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Pianist Sharis Coleman-Derr has been visually impaired since birth. Her struggle to see has been challenging, but isnt the worst fate for the lifetime musician. Music is my thing. Being blind is annoying, but being deaf would be tragic, because then I would have a hard time hearing the music, she said. I cant imagine life without music. To be fair, shes not completely blind. Her retinas were damaged in the womb, an unfortunate side effect to a medicine for morning sickness her mother took when she was pregnant. But her parents didnt realize the damage until Coleman-Derr was about 6 months old. Foreshadowing a life of music, they gave her the middle name Gita, which is Hindi for song, inspired by her grandparents who were missionaries in India. For most of her life, Coleman-Derr could see pretty well out of one eye, she said, enough to ride a bike and read textbooks from a closed circuit television. An emergency surgery at age 28 caused further complications. For about six years, Coleman-Derr dealt with a cataract slowly thickening in her good eye, making her vision worse. Last January, doctors took the cataract out. But her eye had been dilating more and more over the years to compensate for the cataract. When they removed the cataract, my eye was dilated all the time in the daylight. So, it was taking in too much light, which means I dont have enough contrast to see the lines painted on the crosswalks, which makes it very difficult for me to get around now, she said. So Im actually dealing with a new sight change within the last year that makes things even more difficult.A more experimental surgery could either replace her retinas or insert a microchip and neurotransmitter, letting her see via a pair of glasses with cameras that would send the messages directly to her brain. But both approaches are still a long way off in FDOT to begin construction on Gandy $83 million to be spent on expansion project ... Page 9A.

Rick Scott traveled to Pinellas County Feb. 17 to deliver more good news about state funding for local transportation improvements. As part of the governors investments in the Transportation Work Plan, the Florida Department of Transportation is funding $131 million to the Gateway Express project. When complete, the expressway will provide a direct connection from I-275 to U.S. 19 and from I-275 to the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airport and the Bayside Bridge. Motorists will be able to make the new connections using an elevated tolled expressway. Thanks to the infusion of state money, the Gateway Express will open 20 years earlier than originally planned. Im very pleased and thankful for this announcement. It is the largest remaining road connectivity project in Pinellas County, said Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel. The Gateway area is centric for job retention and growth. And it connects this major employment area to St. Petersburg, Clearwater and to Westshore in Tampa. This has been the single largest missing piece for our roadway network within Pinellas County. We are thrilled. FDOT is collaborating with Pinellas County on this project. Funding includes federal, state and Penny for Pinellas funds. Construction on the project, estimated to cost nearly $338 million, is scheduled to start in early 2017. With this $131 million commitment we will be able to speed up this critical project, Scott said. This will make roads safe, and allow families to spend more time together and less time sitting in traffic. The Gateway Express Project also will allow economic activity to continue to grow and develop in Pinellas County, which will create jobs and opportunities for Florida families. Project plans call for construction of the 118th Avenue and State Road 686 corridors as a single design/build project.

TORRESSharis Coleman-Derr, whose middle name Gita means song in Hindi, plays at her organ in her Largo home. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Once youve cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people on a two-burner stove and a toaster oven, roasting the turkey one piece at a time, serving tacos out of a truck doesnt seem so crazy. Kimberly Platt has always loved to cook and entertain, but in hindsight, that dinner 10 years ago foreshadowed her recent change in careers. I should have known then, she said. Im creative with my space and with what equipment I have available to me. Platt, 42, is the owner of Charlie Tulums Taco Shack and the accompanying Dos Tacos Food Truck. How she came to run a taco and catering business is a serendipitous tale, perhaps only less murky than how a turtle named Charlie made it from Tulum, Mexico, to a home in Indian Rocks Beach. Platt described his journey as smuggled and is careful to avoid the names of his current caretakers. The business named after the Mexican turtle started as a walk-up taco window on Indian Rocks Beach. Platt came on as a business partner to help launch the taco truck.

4A Largo Leader, February 27, 2014research before they are approved. So for now, Coleman-Derr, 36, deals with the sight she still has. Shes been living on her own since she was 20 and dating an old schoolmate from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind for longer than that. She enjoys playing at local assisted living facilities and retirement homes. Its a service she picked up when she was visiting her grandparents in an assisted living facility back in Pennsylvania and began playing on the piano. Since then, shes volunteered at the Senior Friendship Center when she lived in Sarasota and locally, at the Grand Villa and, until recently, the Palms of Largos Regal and Cypress Palms. She takes requests, but plays whatever comes to mind, mostly pop songs, romantic melodies and Broadway numbers. Shes particularly fond of the Beatles and artists like Enya. She focuses on positive music, she said, not wanting to waste time on songs with a negative or a woe-is-me message. It was on her grandparents piano the one she still plays on today that she had her first piano lesson. She was about 2 or 3 when she sat down at the piano and began banging on the keys. Her grandfather disciplined her with only spanking I ever received and then explained how she should respect the instrument, she said. From that point on, I thought of the piano as sort of a friend, not just a thing that you bang on, she said. Generally, its sort of a metaphysical belief that when Im playing on the piano, it feels good. The piano feels good; its happy to be of use. I just get that vibration. For a short time when she was 8, Coleman-Derr had a piano teacher who taught her how to play songs by ear. But is mostly self-taught, assembling first the melody of a new song she wants to learn and then accompanying the chords. Aside from the School for the Deaf and Blind, Coleman-Derr attended Manatee College, where she earned an associates degree in psychology. She was a massage therapist for a while, certified in 2003 through the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. She plays, and also sings, for her church, a local Unitarian Universalist congregation, where shes attended for the last 10 years. In 2006, she decided to put together a CD to help benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Her debut album, which she titled Gita, is made up of her original piano compositions, including her first song Escape, written at a womens retreat; Sunset, written for her brother and Coming home, written for her mother. Coleman-Derr doesnt write songs down physically, so the concept of composing an original song is a bit abstract. She knows that some can get very mathematical with their compositions. I dont do it that way, she said. For me, its all about hearing the notes. For one of her original songs, she heard the song in her head first. It found its way into a solid melody as she began to plink it out on the piano when she came home. When I write a song, I sit down and figure out the configuration physically on the piano, and then I try to maintain it in memory, she said. If it sticks, then its a song. If it sticks. Coleman-Derr admits that Gita has not sold as well as she would have liked. Shes not the best saleswoman, she said, though those who have bought it, have said the music is very calming. I havent really written anything new in a long time, she said. I like to compose, but I think I have more fun playing songs that I know for an audience. Shes contemplated recording more of her work in another album. But I probably need to sing on that one, she said. To purchase Gita, contact Coleman-Derr at shariscd@tampabay.rr.com or 366-2291.

Chiropractic clinics hosted food driveGulf Coast Bird Rescue seeks land acquisition for rehab facilityLARGO Gulf Coast Bird Rescue, a nonprofit organization, is searching for land in Pinellas County to develop into a permanent rehabilitation facility for injured native wild birds. According to a press release, the groups original location at George C. McGough Nature Park in Largo isnt large enough for the entire scope of future operations, which would include a hospital, rehabilitation flight pens and educational facilities. Gulf Coast Bird Rescue was founded in February 2013 and has been providing volunteer rescue and transport of injured native wild birds in Pinellas County, filling a massive void in the region. In addition to rescue and rehabilitation services, GCBR plans to provide public awareness education regarding native wildlife and basic rescue procedures. The need for a rehabilitation facility, however, remains until space is found to build a permanent facility. In an area where native wild birds are such a prevalent presence in everyday life, Gulf Coast Bird Rescue provides a critical service that affects every resident in Pinellas County, said Executive Director and co-founder Robin Vergara. We stepped in to fill a void not being met and we look forward to imbedding ourselves in the community and becoming a nonprofit organization of which the community can be proud. Hospital director and co-founder Barbara Suto is a nationally known wildlife biologist who has worked for more than 30 years rehabilitating wild birds in Pinellas County. Vergara said fulfilling his groups mission would require significant funding in order to purchase the land and supplies needed, as well as to build the permanent facility. For more information and to contribute to the mission of Gulf Coast Bird Rescue, visit www.gulfcoastbirdrescue.org. Gulf Coast Bird Rescueis dedicated to preserving native wildlife through humane and professional wild bird rehabilitation, encouraging wise stewardship of our ecosystem through public education and contributing new information to the foundation of knowledge.

GITA, from page 1A TACOS, from page 1A We updated the logo, did a lot of changes, she said. He was supposed to do all the food, and I was doing everything else. The food truck officially began operating Oct. 1. Eleven days later, Platts partner left abruptly during lunch service, mere days before the Dos Tacos Food Truck was scheduled to serve at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Oct. 16. I had never driven the truck. I had never cooked for that many people, Platt said. So for three days, I didnt even sleep. The trial by fire was managed with the help of some great friends and family, Platt said. She doesnt know how many tacos she served during the event, but it was great advertising for the new business. Everybody that came and ate came back that day and ate again, she said. I have no idea how I did it. The jazz festival is where Platt met the Realtor who told her about the space available for lease at 707 1/2 First Ave. SW. in Largo. The restriction that she could only be open for lunch at the location was perfect for a food truck business that primarily stayed busy during the evenings. Platt painted the tiny building bright green, trimmed in orange and blue. She landscaped the taco shacks yard with eclectic decorations and colorful patio furniture and planted a garden where she grows fresh basil and parsley that she uses in her tacos. A lot of time and money has been spent here to make this me, she said, sitting with coffee under a green umbrella in the patio area of the taco shack. Ive always had bright, colorful things. It makes you happy youre sitting in happiness. The serene lot a block away from the intersection of West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road and near OShys Irish Tap House is a bit hard to find, she admitted. But its also a great location, because if people want to leave their office and come and hide, they can do that, she said. The taco shack, which offers free Wifi, is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Charlie Tulums niche is fresh, more organic tacos. Platt, who lives in Dunedin, said she usually stops at Jams Farm Fresh Produce in Largo for ingredients on her way to the taco shack. I shop every morning. I shop as local as I can, Platt said. The taco shack is closed on Mondays because Platt attends classes at the Art Institute of Tampa that day. Shes just two classes away from an associates degree in culinary arts. Restaurant management is a new career field for Platt, but shes alwaysPhotos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, Kimberly Platt stands ready to take orders at Charlie Tulums Taco Shack, at 707 1/2 First Ave. SW. She painted and decorated the small building into a colorful taco shack, shown at right. Below right, one of Charlie Tulums chicken tacos topped with an Asian slaw.been in the food business and industry in some way, sometimes without even knowing it, she said. Aside from working in restaurants on the beach, she ran a division of her parents food recall and retrieval business, overseeing the representatives that pull products off the shelves. When her parents sold that division, Platt had a rare opportunity to make a scary and crazy change in her life. I had the ability to do anything I wanted to do, she said. At 40 years old when you decide to go back to school, its a whole other ball park. Platt traveled a lot for her previous job one year sleeping in her own bed only 26 nights total. The new lifestyle was supposed to allow her more time at home, around the time that Platt began dating longtime friend and now fiance, Lisa Deliello. My goal is to be home and with her and we have a little puppy as much as possible, because I did travel for so long, so hard, she explained. Nonetheless, Platt has been busy. She probably should have finished school before launching a business, she admitted. But Platt is one who always does everything at once, she said. Shes not sure when shell finish school. Shes taking a semester break to concentrate on Charlie Tulums and plan her beach wedding in March. She and Deliello were the 49th couple to be registered as domestic partners when Pinellas County opened the registry in April. Deliello, whos also finishing up a degree, often helps Platt on the truck. Catering and the taco truck have been most successful part of the business. When shes not serving from the truck, Platt has a much broader culinary range, specializing in varied selection of bite-size party appetizers she calls smalls. The taco shack also sells more than tacos, offering salads, soups, hot-pressed sandwiches and burritos on its menu as well as changing daily specials. Platt is open to critiques and suggestions, often telling customers, If you like us, tell us on Facebook. If you dont like us, tell us on Facebook. I take any criticism or praise, she said. I havent had too many negative comments. Growth has been steady. Platt began delivering within a two-mile radius of the taco shack about a month ago. She only recently began actively advertising her business. I can feel the business changing. I can feel Largo changing since Ive been here in October, she said. The city officials and leaders have been supportive and welcoming, she said. She recently joined the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and found its members very loyal to one another. Through the chamber, she partnered with Jay Dingman of Barley Mow to bring the truck out for a monthly event on second Thursdays, 6 to 9 p.m. A beer cheese soup she made with Barley Mow beer has already been a sold-out hit. Platt said she hopes to continually expand her customer base at the taco shack. Im hoping that I can propel the business into something that someday will be bigger than the taco shack, she said. Id like to stay here in Largo, build a business here. Im always keeping my eyes open for whats new and whats next and whats going to happen in the future. And, as soon as the Charlie Tulum brand becomes entirely hers, Platt plans on updating the logo. Charlies great; hes awesome. But he is a male and I am female, so I need something that represents me a little more, she said, explaining that the new logo will feature a girl turtle. Though she didnt come up with the mascot of her company, Charlie Tulum has been an appropriate icon to represent Platt. Shes been obsessed with turtles since she started visiting Hawaii once a year for a month at a time and fell in love with swimming alongside them. Locally, shes found herself drawn to the turtles at McGough Nature Center in Largo. Charlie Tulum will be a sponsor and food vendor at the Turtle Trot 5K on April 26, benefiting the center. And there was one more reason Platt was drawn to Charlie Tulum. A couple of years ago, she reconnected with the son whom she bore and gave up for adoption when she was 15. His name is Charlie, and he works as a chef back in Chicago. Thats why its so cosmic, this all coming together in the time frame that it did, Platt said. The road has been long and difficult, but Platt is happy with the life shes built, she said. Creating and serving food has become her passion. I love what Im doing, she said. I love feeding people. I love making people happy. The taco shack will be closed Thursday and Friday, Feb. 2728, as the taco truck heads out of town, but open again Tuesday, March 4.

When the project is finished, motorists will have a choice to use the existing roadways or take the signal-free tolled expressway and travel from U.S. 19 or the St. Petersburg Clearwater International Airport to I-275 without stopping. Officials estimate that motorists will save nine to 13 minutes during morning and afternoon commutes. Scott made his announcement at the Pinellas Realtors Organization office on Ulmerton Road in Clearwater. We are happy to hear about this exciting new project coming to Pinellas County, said David Bennett, president and CEO of the Pinellas Realtor Organization. The expressway is more than a transportation project; it is an economic development project. It is another way to connect businesses with customers and employees. We thank the governor for his leadership and hope to continue working with him on future transit oriented projects. This is the second visit from the governor to announce accelerated transportation projects. On Feb. 10, Scott told local officials gathered at the Embassy Mobile Home Park in Clearwater that another project would receive FDOT funding to accelerate completion. A new completion date was revealed for the current U.S. 19 construction project from north of Whitney Road to State Road 60 in Clearwater October of this year instead of the summer of 2015. The cost to accelerate the project is $4.8 million. When complete, the 2.7-mile project, which began in November 2009 with an estimated cost of $113.5 million, will allow for uninterrupted travel from 49th Street to Sunset Point Road.

Police beat Police beatMan arrested for shooting motherST. PETERSBURG A St. Petersburg man was arrested Feb. 20 after shooting into a vehicle occupied by his mother and father, injuring his mother who drove herself to a local hospital. Eric James Garcia, 22, was arrested at 66th Street and Central Avenue in St. Petersburg. According to deputies, that Thursday evening, Renee Garcia, 62, of Pinellas Park and her husband Luis Garcia, 59, called police and then went to try to look for their son, who had allegedly burglarized their two homes earlier in the week. One home is in the Hernando County Sheriffs Office jurisdiction, which was also set on fire, and the other home is in Pinellas Park Police Departments jurisdiction. The parents located their son in the area of Sunrise Drive and Bryan Dairy Road in Largo at which point the son began to pursue them in his vehicle. Deputies said when the vehicles reached the vicinity of Bryan Dairy Road and 98th Street, the son fired a shot into the vehicle, injuring his mom, who was driving, in the face. Deputies said the mother continued to drive and transported herself to Largo Medical for treatment. Her injuries were characterized as nonlife-threatening. Deputies responded to the call and a BOLO was issued for the sons vehicle. While at the hospital, the father received a call from the son. Deputies said the son made threatening statements to his dad. The suspects vehicle was later spotted by Indian Shores Police Department traveling recklessly at a high rate of speed. Indian Shores PDWoman shot at Largo apartmentsLARGO Largo police are investigating a non-fatal shooting of a woman at the Fountains of Largo apartments, at 13125 Wilcox Road, the morning of Feb. 21. A white male shot Kristen Gannon, 41, in the leg as he spoke with her outside her apartment that morning, according to Largo police reports. Police received the call about the shooting at around 5:34 a.m. Investigators report that the male resident of the apartment Gannon lived in John Black, 36 was the intended victim of the shooting. The day before, the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office removed Black from a tanning salon after he was accused of voyeurism. The Sheriffs Office has forwarded trespassing charges against Black to the State Attorneys Office for review. The shooting was related to that incident, police report. Police have not identified the suspect, who fled the area after speaking with Gannon and shooting her, according to police. Gannon was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The investigation is ongoing.Fatal motorcycle crash on U.S. 19LARGO A motorcyclist and his passenger are dead after a crash on U.S. 19 at 150th Avenue Feb. 20. Police responded to the crash at 2:57 p.m. The driver of the threewheel motorcycle, Gilles Michaud, and Mona Dube, both of New Brunswick, Canada, were both transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead. Michaud reportedly was driving on the northbound frontage road of U.S. 19 when he attempted to enter the highway. The 2009 HarleyDavidson Ultra Classic three-wheel motorcycle struck the raised median separating frontage road and crashed, according to traffic homicide investigators Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in this case.

Largo teen arrested for sexual batteryLARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a 16-year-old from Largo for sexual battery of a female under the age of 15. According to the sheriffs report, detectives began their investigation on Feb. 16, after the victim disclosed to a family member that Javonte Hummer had sexually battered her earlier in the week, Feb. 11, in an undisclosed location in mid-Pinellas. While speaking with the detectives, the victim, who is known to Hummer, described how she continuously refused the suspects advances until she was eventually physically restrained and sexually battered. Hummer refused to cooperate with the investigation, according to the report, but detectives amassed enough probable cause to arrest him and charge him with sexual battery. Hummer was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Man acts inappropriately around kidsDetectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and Clearwater Police Department are investigating multiple incidents where an adult male in a pickup truck made contact with students near schools.

Dennis Jones retired from public life in 2012, the honors and accolades rolled in from around the community. Then they continued after he stepped down. But one of the biggest accolades came slightly more than a year later when Jones, a longtime leader in the Florida Legislature, a successful Pinellas County chiropractor and director of the Institute of Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, was awarded the inaugural Public Service Award from the Institute of Strategic Policy Solutions during a dinner Feb. 21 at the SPC Seminole campus. More than 200 community, education and government leaders turned out for the event, which featured comments by many of Jones colleagues during his 32-year political career. Among them was Kim Black, president of the Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association; close friend Jack Hebert, founder of the Mallard Group, which formulated most of Jones election campaigns; Jim Olliver, provost of the SPC Seminole campus and Jones son, Dr. Rod Jones. Dr. James Winterstein, president emeritus of the National University of Health Services, provided a letter of congratulations that was read aloud and Fred Lippman, chancellor of the Health Professions Division at Nova Southeastern University and a 20-year member of the Florida House of Representatives, provided a video message. I want to thank the board of directors of this institute to allow me to be your first recipient, said Jones. It certainly was a shocker to think of all of the choices you had. I appreciate it. Jones served in leadership roles in both the Florida House of Representatives and Florida Senate but perhaps his biggest accomplishment was pushing through the Florida Beach and Shore Preservation Act in 2012. The legislation authorizes the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to regulate construction on Florida beaches and offshore of state beaches. It took me 10 years to pass the beach legislation, said Jones With term limits, I could have never done it. I would have been put out to pasture before we ever could have passed the bill. And we could have never passed this legislation without the tremendous partnership we had with Congressman (Bill) Young and (his assistant) Harry Glenn. That bill, in my opinion, is one of the best bills for Florida, but its also the best partnership between the federal government, the state and our local communities. And everyone wins. Jones was a strong supporter of public education throughout his career, which continually brought the endorsement of Pinellas teachers. But his biggest goal never came to fruition, he said. Ive always supported public education, said Jones. My mom and dad were public education. I went through public education and my kids went through public education. When I got elected I made a pledge that I would do my best to get our teacher salaries to the upper core level in the nation because my parents worked their butts off and didnt get paid squat. Unfortunately, I failed. Now 32 years later, our teachers arent even close to being paid in the upper core for the work they do. I just think thats a crime. Jones discussed the days before term limits when he and Lippman, a Democrat, worked closely on a number of successful bills, which Jones attributed to team work at the time in the legislature. Thats when we worked together, said Jones. Thats when members actually talked to each other and sat down and had dinner and talked about bills. You didnt have partisanship and follow the leader. These days, life is more relaxed for Jones. He and his wife Susan live in their Dunnellon home. However, his legacy will live on for many years in Pinellas County. News briefsOnline citizen survey open through FridayPinellas County residents can take a brief online survey to share their vision about what is good and what needs improvement in Pinellas County. How do peoples priorities align with present realities? What do they want the county to be like in five years? As the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners continues to set a strategic direction for the community, feedback from the survey will help set priorities that align with the vision of the citizens they serve. Citizens can take the online survey through Friday, Feb. 28, at 5 p.m. It is available at www.pinellascounty.org and via www.pinellascounty.org/mobile for mobile devices. The Countys goal is to provide evidence-based service to the citizens of Pinellas, said Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala. This survey, along with the phone study, helps us understand the vision and values of the residents in our community. We are at the point of seeing some year-over trends and have measures against national scales as well. All of this helps us to align our efforts with the strategic plan with citizen expectation, to produce the best possible citizen experience. This is the fourth year that the county commission has collected input from residents with an online survey. It follows a statistically valid phone survey that was conducted over the course of two weeks to gather feedback from a cross-section of the countys residents. The results of both surveys will be posted online once the information is compiled.Water supply system project completeThe scheduled construction project by the Pinellas County Department of Environment and Infrastructure and Tampa Bay Water is complete as of Monday, Feb. 24. During this construction period, citizens were asked to curb all unnecessary indoor and outdoor water use. Thanks to the citizens efforts and cooperation during this construction, water consumption was reduced by approximately 5 percent, and the county was able to safely provide 50 million gallons a day to its users. The project was initially slated for completion on Feb. 28. The benefits of the upgrades to the water system will include reducing long-term operation and maintenance costs of the system by replacing aging infrastructure in addition to improving water quality management and providing a more reliable, blended supply of drinking water to Pinellas County customers. While citizens may return to their normal water use activities, they are still encouraged to practice common water conservation methods such as not running water while washing dishes, brushing teeth or shaving, limiting lawn irrigation, repairing leaky fixtures, and installing lowflow faucets and aerators. For more water-saving, bill-reducing conservation tips, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/conservation. Citizens also are reminded that Pinellas County is currently following one-day-per-week water restrictions in accordance with the Southwest Florida Water Management District Phase II Water Shortage Order, which may expire on March 1. However, it is important to note that as weather conditions change, so do water restrictions. Citizens should monitor the website www.pinellascounty.org/ utilities/water-restrict.htm in the next few days as well as on a regular basis to stay up-to-date on water restrictions and ensure their irrigation systems are operating accordingly. Pinellas County appreciates customers patience, understanding and cooperation during this event. Photo by BOB McCLUREFormer State Sen.

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. Communicate openly in your effort to receive the right health care. Advocate with confidence for you!022714 FDOT to begin construction on Gandy BoulevardST. PETERSBURG The Florida Department of Transportation is set to begin construction on an $83 million project to improve eastwest traffic flow in Pinellas County along Gandy Boulevard from Fourth Street to I-275. The design-build team of Condotte-DeMoya JV/BCC was awarded the contract to transform the existing roadway to an elevated six-lane facility (three in each direction) from I-275 to MLK Jr. Street and four lanes (two in each direction) from MLK Jr. Street to east of Fourth Street. Overpasses will be built at 94th Avenue, MLK Jr. Street, Roosevelt Boulevard and Fourth Street. A frontage road system will parallel the mainline roadway. Other features of the project will include pedestrian and bicycle accommodations along the corridor (frontage roads only), signalization, lighting, Intelligent Transportation System and landscaping. Temporary lane closures will be necessary along Gandy, MLK Jr. St., Roosevelt, and Fourth Street. Most closures will be done during off-peak hours. During peak hours, three lanes in each direction will be available between I-275 and MLK Jr. Street and two lanes in each direction from MLK Jr. Street to east of Fourth Street. Temporary detours also will be necessary, however most detours will occur during weekend hours. FDOT will host a construction open house this summer to present more information about the project to the public.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSMadeira Beach is moving forwardEditor: Those who have lived in Madeira Beach for any length of time may recall, albeit reluctantly, the dire straits we found ourselves in a few short years ago. Commission meetings often erupted into open warfare. Little was accomplished, and when something did manage to squeak through the cracks, it was always bitterly contested. One of the big questions asked by residents was who would be next in line to sue us. We were the laughing stock of Pinellas County and our every move subjected us to more ridicule. Today, as a result of the stewardship of Mayor Schontz, followed seamlessly by Mayor Palladino, we have become one of the most respected communities on the west coast of Florida. Our board meetings are dignified and productive and the city is moving forward with several major projects. Under construction are a Marriott hotel, a beach restaurant, significant private development, a new Publix, a new city hall and fire station and a revamped recreation center. In addition a new Walgreens is open and construction is set for a new CVS. Parks are being rebuilt and the Johns Pass and Boardwalk areas have been revitalized and are realizing unparalleled success. On top of this the Leverocks property is currently under consideration for redevelopment, the City Marina and public works complex changes are in full swing, many of our roads are scheduled for resurfacing and storm sewer and other infrastructure improvements are in the planning stages. Finally the long awaited undergrounding of utilities on Gulf Boulevard have actually begun. While the administration cannot take full credit for all of this, they can certainly take credit for having created a climate that encouraged the investment and development that made this possible. Considering where we are today, as opposed to where we were a few short years ago, I can only say my decision, as a voter has been made easy. From my vantage point in the cheap seats it seems to me Mayor Pallidino and Commissioner Hodges and Lister who are seeking reelection, deserve much of the credit. In saying this I have no intention of demeaning the contributions of the rest of the board or of the city administration. What has been accomplished, as well as what is under development or in the planning stages is a tribute to the concerted effort of all who have contributed. This is what good teams do and since we now enjoy a good team I see no reason for breaking it up. I realize those opposing the administration in this election may have much to offer. However, the thing that tips the balance for me is that in one case we are dealing with a known commodity with a certified track record while in the other we are being asked to roll the dice. Personally, given a choice I prefer not to gamble. Robert Shaw Madeira BeachAwaken the sleeping Biltmore beautyEditor: My husband and I are seasonal residents from Chicago, who own a condo for the past eight years in Bayshore II, on the hotel property. Even though the new signage gives solo billing to the Belleair Country Club, it was the hotel that bequeathed the club, and gave the town its notoriety, and I will always consider it as such. When deciding on a place to buy here, we searched up and down Pinellas County from Dunedin to Tierra Verde. We fell in love with our Belleair condo because of its small town feel. It was a lovely gated and gracefully mixed residential hidden gem. It was such a pleasant contrast to most other properties we viewed, which were cookie cutter condo clusters. And then there was this grand hotel, center stage to this Rockwell setting. Despite showing her age, and sporting a funky Godzilla entrance, she oozed history and grander times We were so excited in at its closing, that this Sleeping Beauty would awaken in to her restored glory. But people being people, could not let preservation architects proceed. Lingering law suits delaying the process, until the economy tanked. We now have another chance with a proven preservation architect in the wings that is so close to raising the capital needed to give Belleair a world-class resort again. It can be saved, despite the Ades brothers atrocities. The town graciously and heroically bought the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, in order to preserve the surrounding residents green space and subsequently protect their property values. What about the rest of your constituents? The hotel property residents who are trading a prestigious resort to Cheezems cheezy, cookie-cutter condo clusters. WE are the victims here, as we were at Tuesday nights Town Hall meeting. This was the first meeting I was able to attend, and have been a preservation advocate remotely from Chicago. I was appalled at what I witnessed. The obnoxious, rude and arrogant behavior of the Country Club members that were en masse heckling and sneering condescendingly as well as commissioners telling preservationists, to go sit down. They all politely respected, and listened to Belleair Country Clubs presentations. Which only goes to show you that money cant buy class. Really? We all taught our kids not to bully, but here in our tonie little town, well-dressed adult bullies were in abundance. I applaud Commissioner Fowler for his vote against selling off the hotel, one acre at a time. I encourage the rest to consider the impact of their decisions on ALL their constituents, not just a select few. Bring Belleair back to being synonymous with home to the Belleview Biltmore. Please give a potential Prince Charming, a six-month chance to awaken this sleeping beauty you are entrusted to. The Vinoy slept for 18 years and now is St. Petersburgs MVP. Deborah Repsold BelleairFailed leadership at EMSEditor: Regarding discussion of emergency medical cuts, I agree that the fire chiefs have problems, but it begins with the fire chiefs. About two months ago, a neighbor on the Mainlands of Tamarac had a minor fire, originating from her dishwasher. I personally counted nine fire trucks responding to this minor fire. Is there any coordination between fire departments? Who determines which fire department is to respond? Another incident but same problem: Another of my neighbors had an emergency call button and I would often see several EMS trucks at her home. On one occasion, I noticed a lady standing at this ladys garage and I asked her why she was there and she stated that she was from the Florida Department of Children and Families Services and she was waiting for a policeman to come to accompany her into the home. Soon afterward, I noticed a policeman, a Sunstar truck and a fire truck arrive. This lady is senile and soon thereafter was placed in a secure facility. Unfortunately, it took several years for any action to be taken. Why are our taxpayers responsible for failed leadership at EMS? Why hasnt our county commissioners acted on these problems? Chuck Graham Pinellas ParkRepublicans should reciprocate in name gameEditor: The Democrats refer to the Republican candidate as Lobbyist Jolly, as if it is something to be ashamed of. I cannot understand why the Republicans dont reciprocate in like manner. Use Carpetbagger Alex Sink in their ads. After all, she cannot deny it. Just thinking. K.R. Unger Seminole Mollycoddlers, soothsayers and Cox ran an employment agency. He helped employers find workers, and workers to find jobs. The parts Cox liked best were the many different people he met, and the many skills and abilities he saw in action. A man walked in and filled out an application form. Im a sooth-sayer. Cox said, Please demonstrate. The man said, Sooth. Sooth. Cox said, By gosh, you certainly are a soothsayer. Well call you as soon as we find an opening. The phone rang. It was a sad-sounding woman. My name is Molly, and I need coddling. Do you have any mollycoddlers looking for work? Cox punched several buttons on his computer. Youre in luck, Ms. Molly. Weve got three on file. Ill get in touch with them right away. The next applicant was a tall, white-haired man with a deep voice. I do spellbinding. I bind people by casting spells on them with my resonant voice and eloquent phrases. Cox said, Im sorry, but spellbinders are a dime a dozen these days. Most spellbinding is done during presidential election years. Come back in 2016. Shortly before noon, a lawn-care company phoned. The mans voice was urgent. We need all the bushwhackers you can send us. Mrs. Ellis came back from a months vacation and found all her bushes overgrown. Theres a ton of whacking to be done. Cox said, Well have six bushwhackers on your doorstep at 7 a.m. tomorrow. One of Coxs most interesting requests came from the owner of a chain of ice cream parlors. He told Cox, I need to hire about two dozen ice cream dippers. But they have to be slim. Overweight employees dipping ice cream make the customers think the workers are eating up the merchandise. Cox said, I see. What you want is skinny dippers. The ice cream man said, Thats right. Cox said, Ill do my best. Farmers sometimes contacted Cox and asked him to find trustworthy clod hoppers. He learned that term referred to persons (usually men) who hopped clods. A clod was a mound left behind when a horse or mule pulled a plow through dirt. The man guiding the horse then had to hop over the clod. A local factory owner stormed into Coxs office one day and demanded a refund on the fee Cox had charged him the previous week. Whats wrong? said Cox. The customer said, You sent me a job jumper! He never stays put for more than a week. Then he jumps to another job. Cox gave the man his money, and then put a sign in the front window: Job jumpers need not apply. Cox posted another sign saying, Bookkeeper wanted. The next day a woman applied for the opening. Cox tested her by having her inspect his accounts-receivable file. She glanced at the file and said, What do all these numbers mean? Cox said, Arent you a bookkeeper? She replied, Yes. I buy books and then keep them. I love books. Do you have any for me to keep? One day Cox bought a copy of the local newspaper, the Gazette. It was not a bad paper, but it lacked excitement. Cox said to himself, The Gazette needs to rake more muck. Ill check my files and see if I can send a few muckrakers over to the Gazettes editor. A gorgeous blonde walked into Coxs office. She stood 5 foot 9 inches tall with a blinding smile and a figure that could cause digital clocks to run backwards. Cox said, Miss, what is your occupation? She said, Im a head-turner. Wherever I go, heads turn and people smile at me. Cox said, Thats nice, but how do you earn money? The lady giggled and said, Youd be surprised. Cox said, Ill sign you up. Im sure we can find a place for your talents. The two job candidates that Cox could not help were a boondoggler and a hornswoggler. A boondoggler took bona fide tasks and after a few months turned them into expensive, time-wasting dead ends. The job market was overflowing with boondogglers, but nobody wanted to hire them. On the other hand, a hornswoggler was simply a deceiver, a liar or a cheat. He/she roamed the countryside searching for unsuspecting horns to swoggle. Nobody knew where the terms boondoggler and hornswoggler came from. Cox solved this problem by referring such job-hunters to Angies List. He was sure Angie would make short shrift of them. One night Cox dreamed of a woman named Molly being coddled by a soothsaying, bushwhacking skinny dipper while both of them stood knee-deep in muck with rakes in their hands. It was a complicated dream, but when Cox awoke he knew instantly what it meant. It meant that he loved his work. Can you think of a happier dream for a fellow to have?Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver An ode to spring, Dunedin, baseballI grew up on baseball. The first outfit my dad bought me was a New York Mets onesie. Ive spent almost every Fathers Day for the last 10 years at Tropicana Field. Birthday parties were planned around Little League softball games. I can track my life from spring training to the World Series. Opening Night is my New Years Eve. Baseball has a way of calming me down. Theres no headache-inducing back-and-forth motion like in basketball or tennis, or grating crunch of bone against helmet like in hockey or football. Its quiet and exhilarating all at the same time, with the soft hiss of wind as a fly ball whooshes past or the puff of red dust as a runner beats the tag at second base. Theres a sweet simplicity to baseball that never ceases to amaze me. But its not all quiet. Bats break and umpires yell and fans cheer. Baseball can be loud. And I love that, too. I love that in downtown Dunedin, at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, the fans belt the Canadian national anthem louder than the Star Spangled Banner. Emerging from the depths of Ontario and Alberta, they sing, with their Blue Jays hats clenched to their chests, about patriot love and the True North. I love that the thermometer reads 75 degrees Fahrenheit and that the sun peeks between palm trees and that if you breathe in deeply, you can almost smell the salt from the Gulf of Mexico. I love that for six weeks a year, near the corner of Douglas Avenue and Beltrees Street, baseball spring training makes Dunedin loud. From just inside the Dunedin Public Library, you can tell when the Blue Jays get a hit. Faintly, but still audible above the hum of the computer, you can hear the cheers as the batter rounds first base or the runner slides across home plate in a cloud of red dirt. The parking lot of Curtis Fundamental Elementary School, typically empty on weekends, overflows with Blue Jays bumper stickers and trunks stuffed with Little League gear for Sunday morning games. That was my family, before school and leg injuries got in the way. Signs sprinkle the ground advertising parking costs: $15 at the front of the stadium, $10 along the side and $5 in the lot tucked quietly in the back. Old men in once-white knee socks and Gray Jays hats sit in beach chairs on the sidewalk with tickets to put on your dashboard, a lazy parking pass. Inside, the audio system at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium blasts ringtone favorites: Gangam Style and Call Me Maybe and Harlem Shake (not my ringtone. Not anymore, at least). The outfield wall is lined with advertisements, Budweiser at the left field foul pole, Sea Dog Brewing Co. next to the scoreboard and Lucky Dill Deli behind the right fielder. A vendor, having claimed his territory in the blue stands behind home plate, sells peanuts and sunshine (the peanuts didnt taste any different than the ones you can buy in a bag at Publix, but the thought was nice). And through nine innings of not-quite-flawless baseball, the Blue Jays made Dunedin loud. Past the stadium and the parking lots and the traffic, downtown Dunedin whispers with the hum of a spring fair. Homemade jewelry and craft beer line the sidewalks and vendors and onlookers mingle with questions of price and quality (I abstained when I couldnt haggle the price of a bracelet down to $3).And hidden between the trinkets and treasures, underneath a mound of mismatched earrings and scarves, peeks a faded Blue Jays hat. A Toronto maple leaf flag pin. A signed baseball from players long gone (or so the dealer told me; I didnt recognize any of the names).In Florida, spring means heat and mosquitoes and red tide. But it also means baseball. And thats enough for me.Kate Feldman is editor of the Tarpon Springs Beacon. Email her at kfeldman@tbnweekly .com We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

The stop was one of 50 in the Fighting for Our Childrens Future National Bus Tour, a cross-country, year-long effort to raise awareness for the profound impact an excellent education can make on a childs life, and to celebrate the unique role Catholic schools play as agents of human formation and social transformation. Sacred Heart Catholic School, at 7951 46th Way N. in Pinellas Park, is one of two schools in the Tampa Bay area that partners with the university as a Notre Dame ACE Academies. The second is St. Joseph Catholic School in Tampa. During the visit, Sean OGrady, senior vice president of sales at General Mills, presented a $40,000 grant to Notre Dame ACE Academies, which will support students at the school. At General Mills, we believe not only in nourishing the lives of people who enjoy our products, but we also want to be a part of your community, OGrady said. You should all believe that you can do great things one day, because you can. And thats why were here. The event also included the presentation of a University of Notre Dame Sorin Award for Service to Catholic Schools to the Rev. Robert Lynch, bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, which oversees the local Notre Dame ACE Academies. The ACE program has very seriously been a catalyst for us, Lynch said. It has been the yeast that has raised the leaven of Catholic education. Above, Sacred Heart Catholic School students surround a check representing a $40,000 General Mills community grant to their school.

Its funny how we can spend so much money going out to a fancy restaurant for a special occasion or that date we rarely get now because we have kids. Recently my husband took me out for a wonderful date. It was a kayak adventure on our awesome waterways in Pinellas. We are so fortunate to live in an area where we have such beautiful water all around us. My husband decided he was going to do something different than the normal date night. He wanted to do a sunset kayak cruise. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. We took the kayak out and trolled through the water for a while. We stopped and fished a little. Even though we didnt catch anything, we still had a few nibbles so it was fun. We decided to head to one of the islands. On the island we found some unique tree stumps to sit on to have a picnic as the sun set. As I was watching the sunset, I thought about how beautiful and relaxing it was to just sit and not have a care in the world. It was so peaceful. How often do we get to take a few moments to not have television, computers, phones and kids vying for our time? Every once in a while we need to take time out for ourselves as moms and parents and get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We need to relax and enjoy nature and its beauty. It is at these times that the basics can be the most fun and most memorable. Think about it: what date do you remember most? How about that walk in the park, the trip to the beach, feeding ducks together at the duck pond, riding bikes on the trail, picnicking, swinging in a hammock or gazing at the stars. All of which are relatively free. As we started heading back in after the sun went down, I thought the only thing that could add to this beautiful day would be a dolphin. I dont know what it is, but seeing a dolphin swim around you in the water is just an amazing feeling. I began searching for a dolphin once we got in the kayak, but there were none to be seen. As fate would have it, just before I gave up hope, we were surrounded by two sets of dolphin on each side. It was the completion to a perfect date.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

Bishop Alex Patrick, first counselor Richard Flora and second counselor Victor Pavone were sustained by the ward members as the new bishopric. A bishop is the leader of a local congregation known as a ward with duties similar to those of a pastor, priest or rabbi. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this position is unpaid and typically last around five years. Each bishop is assisted by two counselors. Together, this bishopric oversees the spiritual and social needs of their ward members, and helps bring each member of the congregation closer to Jesus Christ. Visitors are welcome to meet the new bishopric and join in worship. Services start Sundays, 10 a.m., at 9001 106th Ave., Largo.Unitarian Universalists ChurchCLEARWATER Paper, Clay & Canvas, an art exhibit, will be featured Sunday, March 2, 2 to 4 p.m., in the Octagon Gallery at Unitarian Universalists Church, 2470 Nursery Road. This exhibition urges us all to celebrate, according to a press release from the church. Paper, Clay and Canvas revels in the eternal springs of creativity from three well-known area artists. Featured artists are Patsie McCandless, Gail Wynne and Scott Menaul. McCandless creates her PaperSolo art entirely from paper no paint, no pen, no ink. Her pieces range in themes from flora and figures to vessels, vistas and winged creatures. Wynne is an explorer in the art of handbuilding clay. She has developed her own techniques, and her own individual expression. She emphasizes experimenting with form, texture and color, resulting in elegant pieces that amaze and delight. Menaul is a trailblazing abstract surrealist, whose work compels the viewer to participate in every canvas. He creates with a sense of infinite color, pattern and form; all within a precise design that often uses his interest in math and science to create amazing geometrical forms. All three artists are donating a portion of the proceeds to the St. Petersburg Opera Co. and the North Suncoast Guild of the Florida Orchestra.

Hercules Ave. The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program created to interest young people in aviation. Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.8 million young people in more than 90 countries. Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally, said Bob Flynn, spokesman for the event. We hope to build one-to-one relationships between pilots and young people, giving a new generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that exist in the world of aviation. Pilots at the event also will explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure safety is the prime concern before every flight. Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered into the Worlds Largest Logbook, which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wis. It also is accessible at www.youngeagles.org. Those who wish to fly should be at the airpark starting at 8 a.m. to register for their flight. Registration is first come, first served and will continue until 11 a.m. unless the maximum of 50 Young Eagles signed up is reached, which also would end registration. Weather will be monitored.

I feel that we should be focused on decreasing the cost of care. Medicare fund or cut and why. Jolly: I have said from the beginning of this campaign that we need to protect the promises that have been made to everyone. Pinellas seniors and those who have planned for Medicare should not be faced with reduction in Medicare benefits, including Medicare Advantage. Sink: Medicare is a promise made to our seniors who have earned it. We must keep that promise to Pinellas seniors. Overby: While I feel that we need to be looking for ways to make Medicare more efficient, I do not feel that we are in a place to blindly cut funding. Should the minimum wage be increased? Explain your answer. Jolly: I believe that minimum wage should be indexed to inflation or subject to a cost-of-living adjustment like any other federal income program, meaning some years it may go up, other years it may stay static. Sink: The minimum wage should be increased to allow hard working Pinellas residents to earn a living wage. Raising the minimum wage will put more money in the hands of workers and boost our economy. Overby: I am opposed to raising the minimum wage. Instead I am in favor of decreasing taxes and allowing people to keep more of what they earn and allow businesses more availability for hiring. Flood insurance reform how do you fix NFIP and keep insurance affordable for property owners? Jolly: I believe we should replace the National Flood Insurance Program with a new natural disaster insurance program that better aggregates and diversifies risk across all regions and all types of disasters, from earthquakes in the west, to snow in the northeast and northwest, to tornadoes in the Midwest, to floods and fires throughout the country but then only until state-based solutions, like those currently under consideration in Florida, are enacted. Sink: The flood insurance crisis is one of the main reasons I got in this race. We must stop the flood insurance rate spike from impacting Pinellas homeowners. I have outlined my principles to tackle this crisis, which involve holding FEMA accountable and increasing transparency and affordability for homeowners, and rolling back the rate spike. I encourage residents to look at the full details of my proposals on my website, www.AlexForCongress.com. Overby: Short term, I am in favor of delivering a hold on the rate hikes for all citizens and helping Florida move forward with privatization. I do not feel that the NFIP can be saved in a way that we will not run into these problems again and any expansion will inevitably lead to even larger problems down the road. Social Security how do you sustain it for the future, or do you? Jolly: I believe we have to protect benefits not just for current beneficiaries, but also for those who have already vested into social security through 40 quarters (or 10 years) of employment. Sink: I am proud to be the only candidate in this race who has been perfectly clear about my commitment to protecting and preserving the Social Security benefits that Pinellas seniors have earned, and I am proud to have been endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. While Social Security will remain viable for the next two decades as is, the best long-term solution is to get our economy growing again with more high-paying, sustainable jobs. Overby: I am in the process of working through several voluntary options for removal of high income recipients, as well as restructuring options for retirement age and cost of living. At this point I am unwilling to abandon SS by arbitrarily placing the cost on one generation in favor of another. Gay marriage for or against Jolly: As a matter of faith, I believe in traditional marriage. However, I do not object to states choosing to allow same-sex marriage. The sanctity of marriage is between two individuals and their God. Sink: I support marriage equality. Overby: For. Legalizing medical marijuana for or against Jolly: I am against legalizing medical marijuana through a ballot initiative. Sink: I have seen firsthand how medicinal marijuana could help those suffering from serious diseases and illnesses, and I want those who are suffering to be able to receive the care they need. I am concerned about the prospect of a marijuana store on every corner, and would want to carefully review the specifics of proposals to legalize it. Overby: For. Is immigration reform headed in the right direction? Jolly: We are a loving and caring nation that is better because of legal immigration. It should be encouraged. But we must secure our borders against those who flagrantly ignore our nations immigration laws. People who enter our country illegally simply cannot be given special treatment over those who have been patiently waiting in their country of origin to enter our country legally. Sink: I support the Senates bipartisan immigration reform bill and I urge the House of Representatives to pass it. Overby: The Senate Bill is a good first step. Is a balanced budget important for the federal government? Jolly: Yes, I support a balanced budget amendment. Sink: To get our fiscal house in order we must start cutting our debt and balancing budgets by cutting wasteful spending and closing tax loopholes so that big corporations and the wealthiest few are paying their fair share. What we cannot do is try and balance the budget on the backs of seniors, veterans, and middle class Pinellas families. Overby: Conceptually it is a good idea; however the wording would need to be very specific that taxes cannot be raised to balance the budget. Funding for beach nourishment is dwindling, how can you help? Jolly: I worked with Congressman Bill Young for nearly 20 years on issues important to Pinellas County, including beach renourishment. It is experience I bring to this campaign. I intend to carry on his work not just on funding for beach renourishment on reauthorization of renourishment programs that protect our beaches, our quality of life and our economy. Sink: Here in Pinellas County we know better than most that healthy beaches mean a healthy economy. I am fully committed to protecting our beautiful beaches and the economy they support, and in Congress I will be a strong and vocal advocate to ensure our beaches receive the resources we need. Overby: I have already been working with local candidates and officials on ways that local communities could deal with the issues of beach renourishment and sustainability outside of the federal funds. This would make Pinellas County beach communities more self-sufficient and more in control of their own environment. Do you approve of Greenlight Pinellas? If so, will you push for federal money to help fund it? If you dont approve of Greenlight Pinellas, will you seek federal funds for other projects to improve transportation in Pinellas? Jolly: Infrastructure and transportation improvements are always beneficial. I personally will vote against Greenlight because of the tax increase. If elected, and the voters approve of Greenlight in November, I will work in Congress to ensure federal funds are provided to ensure the programs success. Sink: I support measures that will improve Pinellas transportation infrastructure. If voters approve the measure it will be my responsibility to work with the administration to get the federal matching funds. Overby: I am opposed to Greenlight largely because of the negative impact on low-income residents of raising costs in the county to pay for it. I have been working with residents on both sides of the issue to help find solutions to our mass transportation needs, but those solutions will not contain federal funding. If elected, what is the No. 1 thing you can do for the people you serve in Pinellas? Jolly: Immediately continue the legacy of constituent and community service that our late Congressman Young was known for. Serving in Congress means first taking care of Pinellas County. Sink: I will work to bring Republicans and Democrats together to break the gridlock and get things done for Pinellas County. I have practiced these bipartisan, results-oriented values my entire life, and its those values I will take to Congress. Overby: The number one focus should be on restructuring and decreasing taxes, helping to bring back a strong small business environment, and making conditions more suitable for the middle class. Accusations are flying as the campaign heats up. What one thing would you like to set straight? Jolly: My opponent and outside groups have continued to misrepresent my position on Social Security and Medicare reform. I do not believe in privatizing Social Security or turning Medicare into a voucher program. The Tampa Bay Times and multiple fact check organizations have repeatedly found those claims to be false yet some in this campaign continue to use such false allegations simply to scare seniors. The voters deserve better. Sink: No matter what the attack ads may say, my record as a fiscal conservative and moderate Democrat is not up for debate. As the Chief Financial Officer, we cracked down on wasteful spending and protected tax dollars taking the best ideas from the private sector to make government do more with less. We introduced commonsense initiatives that saved millions for Floridians by cutting red tape and introducing performance metrics to hold government accountable for waste and abuse, and Ill do the same in Congress. Overby: No answer. Do you think your political party will help or hurt your chances of winning the election? Jolly: Elections should always be decided on where individual candidates stand on the issues. I believe my positions on lower taxes, healthcare and flood insurance resonate strongly with the voters. Sink: Thats for the political pundits to decide. Voters are sick and tired of the dysfunction and gridlock in Washington, and theyre ready for Republicans and Democrats to come together to start getting things done Im running for Congress to do just that. Overby: I feel that in this particular election my party affiliation has helped. For more information on the candidates, visit davidjolly.com, alexforcongress.com and lucasoverby.com.

Kathleen Peters recently filed Senate Bill 1090 and House Bill 979, respectively, to expand grant programs to Florida communities to help fund temporary and transitional housing and services for the homeless. This bill also will provide training and technical support to qualified agencies serving Floridas homeless. Florida has the third highest number of homeless people in the country, and the recent recession has drastically limited our ability to fund existing housing programs, said Latvala. Because the economy is recovering and we will have a surplus this next budget year, I decided to tackle this issue by working together with experts in Florida to develop this bill. Peters said, This bill will assist local communities in providing our most vulnerable citizens with their basic needs of food and shelter as well as other program services. Challenge Grants may be used for housing or services for the homeless and will be awarded based on the degree of homelessness in a community and the ability of local government and private organizations to provide matching funds. The bill also directs a portion of State Housing Initiatives Partnership program funding to be used by the Department of Children and Families to distribute to homeless programs.

16A Outdoors Leader, February 27, 2014 202714 Trout, redfish action heats upLast week we started to get a taste for things to come in the fishing world. As the water warmed over several days of upper 70-degree weather, the fish responded. Trout fishing on the strong part of the incoming tide was phenomenal. Schools of adult trout can be found around many of the spoil islands in the northern part of the county. Whether you choose to cast artificials, or free-line a variety of different kinds of live bait, this good fishing opportunity should continue for weeks to come. Redfish were on the chew last week as well. Big afternoon high tides allowed the reds to make their way up to the mangroves where they could scour oyster mounds for crabs. Casting live shrimp under a float up to the oyster mounds is perhaps one of the best ways to catch redfish in our area; the strikes can be explosive. As water temperatures continue to rise it came as no surprise that Spanish mackerel would begin to show up as they take advantage of the first real bait stocks of the spring season. Deep grass patches near the passes will hold the small bait that the mackerel are feeding on. Cast weighted jigs, spoons or live shrimp with a long shanked hook when targeting the mackerel. Offshore bottom fishing has been excellent for mangrove snapper. Ledges and artificial reefs in 30 to 50 feet of water are holding snapper ranging in size from 12 to 18 inches. Dropping down a chum basket will encourage the mangos to go on a feeding frenzy. Small live shrimp on a small hook and a long light leader with half ounce up to an ounce and a half sliding sinker will put you in the game. 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@TBN weekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.comState agency records third highest manatee count since 1991Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported a preliminary count of 4,831 manatees in Florida during this years statewide aerial survey, conducted in late January. A team of 20 observers from nine organizations counted 2,317 manatees on Floridas east coast and 2,514 on the west coast of the state. This years manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991, said Gil McRae, director of the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently. Information on warm-water habitat use from this years survey will be integrated with manatee survival and reproductive rates to update future population projections. The goal of the aerial manatee survey is to count as many manatees as possible, providing researchers with a minimum number for manatees in Florida waters and a snapshot of where they are at the time of the survey. Weather conditions and manatee behavior during the survey have a large effect on survey counts. Because these factors vary from year to year, this count cannot be used to determine long-term population trends. After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive, strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted, said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. The surveys highlight the importance of warm-water habitat to manatees in the winter, increasing researchers understanding of manatee distribution and relative use of these areas that are essential to manatee health and survival. The survey information helps managers better protect this endangered species. Researchers have been conducting statewide aerial surveys since 1991, weather permitting, to meet the states requirement for an annual count of manatees in Florida waters. Statewide aerial surveys were not conducted during the winters of 2012 and 2013 due to warm-weather conditions. Florida residents can help manatees by purchasing a manatee specialty license plate and a manatee decal. Funds from the license plate and decal support manatee research and conservation. Go to BuyaPlate.com to learn more about the license plate and MyFWC.com/ManateeSeaTurtleDecals to purchase a decal. Both items are available at county tax collectors offices.

During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the airline to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.StalingradGenre: Drama and war Cast: Thomas Kretschmann, Pyotr Fyodorov, Sergey Bondarchuk, Maria Smolnikova and Yanina Studilina Director: Fedor Bondarchuk Rated: R The top grossing Russian film of 2013 and first Russian motion picture presented in IMAX 3D, Stalingrad is an epic look at the battle that turned the tide of World War II. A band of determined Russian soldiers fight to hold a strategic building in their devastated city against a ruthless German army, and in the process become deeply connected to a Russian woman who has been living there. In Stalingrad, directed by Fedor Bondarchuk, the scale of the battle contrasts dramatically with the human drama of the Russian soldiers, the few remaining civilians and their invaders into Stalingrad.Odd ThomasGenre: Action and supernatural thriller Cast: Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nico Tortorella, Patton Oswalt and Willem Dafoe Director: Stephen Sommers Not rated Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger showsup with an entourage of ghostly bodachs predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction Odd knows that his town is in serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good vs. evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.RepentanceGenre: Psychological thriller Cast: Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie, Mike Epps, Sanaa Lathan and Nicole Ari Parker Director: Philippe Caland Rated: R Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Tommy Carter (Anthony Mackie) has reinvented himself as a therapist/ spiritual advisor who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity. Hes parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the untimely death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Mike Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. What may be simple to grasp for some is the idea that single actions in the past comprise tidal waves of reactions in the present. The LunchboxGenre: Drama, fantasy and romance Cast: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nakul Vaid Director: Ritesh Batra Rated: PG Middle class housewife Ila is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that this new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan, a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following days lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery. This begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. They each discover a new sense of self and find an anchor to hold on to in the big city of Mumbai that so often crushes hopes and dreams. Still strangers physically, Ila and Saajan become lost in a virtual relationship that could jeopardize both their realities.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBN weekly.com.

RLJ/Image Entertainment will be releasing Odd Thomas in theaters on Feb. 28. Locally, the film will play AMC Woodland Square 20, 3128 Tampa Road, Oldsmar. The paranormal thriller Odd Thomas, starring Anton Yelchin in the titular role, is based on the 2003 Dean Koontz novel of the same name. American filmmaker Stephen Sommers responsible for films such as The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra embraced the challenge of bringing the story to the big screen. The result is a splendidly entertaining and entrancing endeavor that blends horror, romance, action and humor. Sommers adaptation of the material is quirky, stylish and audacious. The film begins with a succinct prologue introducing the central character and outlining his extraordinary supernatural gifts. In addition to seeing dead people, the audience learns he doesnt just shrug off the lost souls seeking justice: He acts in their behalf. Odd also has the ability to see bodachs demonic wraiths who feed on pain and gather en masse whenever they sense imminent carnage. When a stranger stumbles into the diner during the breakfast rush, Odd is unsettled by the number of bodachs following him. Sensing impending doom, Odd pursues the pariah aptly named Fungus Man and gradually he and his girlfriend Stormy (Addison Timlin) are drawn into a complicated mystery. Odd comes to believe he may be the only thing that can prevent a looming catastrophe. Yelchin truly anchors this unconventional tale. His outstanding portrayal of this idiosyncratic character is intuitive: He manages to make Odds supernatural abilities believable. Yelchins Odd is charming, noble and down-to-earth. He plays the self-effacing paranormal superhero so flawlessly its difficult to imagine anyone else in the role. On his website, Koontz commented on Yelchins take on his character, stating that he brings great heart to the role and he captures Odds humility. Stephen Sommers, the director, said from day one that Anton Yelchin was his only choice to play Odd and that if Anton didnt want to do it, the film would never be quite what it could have been, Koontz wrote. Ill admit to being skeptical. But once you see Anton in this, you know you have Dafoe, who plays Wyatt Porter, the police chief who knows about Odds gift and welcomes his assistance. And then theres Shuler Hensley, who plays Fungus Bob. For someone with virtually no dialog, his performance is one that will be remembered for quite some time by anyone who sees this film. While the acting is first-rate, Sommers film suffers from a handful of flaws. As with any adaptation, the story is condensed leading to a few noticeable plot holes, a narrative that is at times untidy and one or two pesky dont-go-in-there moments so common in the horror genre. The brisk comic-book pacing, the post-Whedon snarky banter and fine acting help keep this matinee movie fare fresh and fun. While Yelchin sells Odd Thomas, Sommers gets credit for orchestrating the unique oddball, even amalgamation of action and romance, horror and comedy. With its deliciously weird sense of humor, its vigorous pace and its subtle but haunting ideas about death, Odd Thomas manages to divert and amuse and it even packs a surprising emotional wallop. Fans of the book will likely enjoy the film, even if the tale is truncated. More importantly, the film will introduce those not familiar with Koontzs novel to the literary character. The author has written a series of books around Odd Thomas, with titles such as Forever Odd, Brother Odd Odd Apocalypse and House of Odd. See the movie then read the books.Movie review seen the best of all possible Odds. Timlin also gives a solid, nuanced performance as Stormy. It always helps when two romantically paired characters manage to show on-screen chemistry, and Yelchin and Timlin achieve that in Odd Thomas. Other outstanding cast members include Willem Photo courtesy of RLJ/IMAGE ENTERTAINMENTAnton Yelchin plays the titular in Odd Thomas.

Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is considered one of the main catalysts for an entire movement in country rock and American roots music. The band boasts a solid string of multi-platinum and gold records as well as Top 10 hits such as Fishin In The Dark and Mr. Bojangles. Over the years, the band has racked up multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA awards and nominations. The band traces its history back to Long Beach, Calif. Founded in 1966, NGDB came together when singer-guitarist Jeff Hanna and singer-songwriter guitarist Bruce Kunkel took part in informal jam sessions seeking like-minded musicians to form a group. Among those they came into contact with during the sessions were guitarist/washtub bassist Ralph Barr, guitarist-clarinetist Les Thompson, harmonicist and jug player Jimmie Fadden and guitarist-vocalist Jackson Browne. Browne joined, but remained only a few months before exiting to focus on a solo career. The band evolved from a novelty jug band into a leader of the California folk rock scene. Liberty Records signed the band and in 1967 released its debut album, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band which included the Top 40 hit Buy for Me the Rain. NGDB followed with Ricochet (1967) and Rare Junk (1968), as well as the live album Alive (1969), all of which failed to achieve commercial success. On stage, however, the band continued to attract fans, opening for acts such as Jack Photo courtesy of WME ENTERTAINMENTThe Nitty Gritty Dirt Band takes the stage at Clearwaters Capitol Theatre on March 6.Benny, Bill Cosby and The Doors. In 1969, the band appeared in the musical western Paint Your Wagon, performing Hand Me Down That Can o Beans. By 1970, the band was pioneering the country rock sound. The album Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy featured the bands best known single, Mr. Bojangles. On their next album, the band teamed up with country-western icons such as Roy Acuff, Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, Merle Travis and Jimmy Martin. Will the Circle be Unbroken was released as a three-record set in 1972. It included the singles I Saw the Light, Honky Tonkin and Grand Ole Opry Song. By this time, the band had undergone a number of personnel changes. In fact, Hanna and Fadden are the only two members to have stuck with the band through its many incarnations. For a short time, the band recorded and performed as The Dirt Band, but in 1982 members reclaimed the full name. During the 1980s, NGDB scored a string of hits on the U.S. country charts, beginning with Dance Little Jean in 1983 and continuing with Long Hard Road (The Sharecroppers Dream), I Love Only You, High Horse, Modern Day Romance, Home Again in My Heart, Stand a Little Rain, Fishin in the Dark and Ive Been Lookin. Now nearing their fifth decade together, NGDB continues to add to their legendary status. Their groundbreaking Will The Circle Be Unbroken album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame. NGDBs recording of Mr. Bojangles was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010. Today, NGDB features Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen. The groups most recent studio release was the critically acclaimed 2009 album Speed of Life. In 2013, Capitol/EMI reissued in its original form on vinyl Will The Circle Be Unbroken for its 40th anniversary.

Candidates push toward electionsThose vying for Congress address health care, budget and local issues, politics By SUZETTE PORTERWith 73,192 mail ballots returned to the Elections Office as of Feb. 21, and early voting set to begin Saturday, March 1, campaigns are in full swing for candidates looking to win Pinellas Countys District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Republican David Jolly, 41, Democrat Alex Sink, 65, and Libertarian Lucas Overby, 27, are running for the seat left vacant after C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Write-in candidate Michael S. Levinson also qualified. His name does not appear on the ballot; however, a blank appears on the ballot where voters can fill in his name. Tampa Bay Newspapers asked Jolly, Sink and Overby to answer one last round of questions to assist voters making their choices in the March 11 election. Affordable Care Act Good or bad and why. David Jolly: I believe we can improve healthcare coverage for the individual by replacing Obamacare with a smaller government model that encourages private sector solutions. We should replace Obamacare with a statutory framework that resembles that of term life insurance. A young individual can take out a policy that is priced based on their youth and health for a term certain (10, 20, 30 years). It would provide price stability, protection from cancellation due to intervening health events, would be portable, decoupled from the employer, but eligible for reimbursement by employers who choose to do so. For pre-existing conditions, we should consider a system that pre-qualifies individuals for a federal program prior to the complete elimination of the individuals personal safety net resources. Alex Sink: While the Affordable Care Act is far from perfect, we cannot go back to a time where insurance companies ran the show and could discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions. Republicans and Democrats must come together to improve the law: keep what works and fix any problems. But a radical repeal would make everyone pay more and would bring back the Medicare prescription drug donut hole for seniors. That is unacceptable. Lucas Overby: While I am willing to work with certain aspects of the ACA, such as the new consumer protection policies, I feel that in the long run the By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Pianist Sharis Coleman-Derr has been visually impaired since birth. Her struggle to see has been challenging, but isnt the worst fate for the lifetime musician. Music is my thing. Being blind is annoying, but being deaf would be tragic, because then I would have a hard time hearing the music, she said. I cant imagine life without music. To be fair, shes not completely blind. Her retinas were damaged in the womb, an unfortunate side effect to a medicine for morning sickness her mother took when she was pregnant. But her parents didnt realize the damage until Coleman-Derr was about 6 months old. Foreshadowing a life of music, they gave her the middle name Gita, which is Hindi for song, inspired by her grandparents who were missionaries in India. For most of her life, Coleman-Derr could see pretty well out of one eye, she said, enough to ride a bike and read textbooks from a closed circuit television. An emergency surgery at age 28 caused further complications. For about six years, Coleman-Derr dealt with a cataract slowly thickening in her good eye, making her vision worse. Last January, doctors took the cataract out. But her eye had been dilating more and more over the years to compensate for the cataract. When they removed the cataract, my eye was dilated all the time in the daylight. So, it was taking in too much light, which means I dont have enough contrast to see the lines painted on the crosswalks, which makes it very difficult for me to get around now, she said. So Im actually dealing with a new sight change within the last year that makes things even more difficult.A more experimental surgery could either replace her retinas or insert a microchip and neurotransmitter, letting her see via a pair of glasses with cameras that would send the messages directly to her brain. But both approaches are still a long way off in FDOT to begin construction on Gandy $83 million to be spent on expansion project ... Page 9A.

Rick Scott traveled to Pinellas County Feb. 17 to deliver more good news about state funding for local transportation improvements. As part of the governors investments in the Transportation Work Plan, the Florida Department of Transportation is funding $131 million to the Gateway Express project. When complete, the expressway will provide a direct connection from I-275 to U.S. 19 and from I-275 to the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airport and the Bayside Bridge. Motorists will be able to make the new connections using an elevated tolled expressway. Thanks to the infusion of state money, the Gateway Express will open 20 years earlier than originally planned. Im very pleased and thankful for this announcement. It is the largest remaining road connectivity project in Pinellas County, said Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel. The Gateway area is centric for job retention and growth. And it connects this major employment area to St. Petersburg, Clearwater and to Westshore in Tampa. This has been the single largest missing piece for our roadway network within Pinellas County. We are thrilled. FDOT is collaborating with Pinellas County on this project. Funding includes federal, state and Penny for Pinellas funds. Construction on the project, estimated to cost nearly $338 million, is scheduled to start in early 2017. With this $131 million commitment we will be able to speed up this critical project, Scott said. This will make roads safe, and allow families to spend more time together and less time sitting in traffic. The Gateway Express Project also will allow economic activity to continue to grow and develop in Pinellas County, which will create jobs and opportunities for Florida families. Project plans call for construction of the 118th Avenue and State Road 686 corridors as a single design/build project.

TORRESSharis Coleman-Derr, whose middle name Gita means song in Hindi, plays at her organ in her Largo home. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Once youve cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people on a two-burner stove and a toaster oven, roasting the turkey one piece at a time, serving tacos out of a truck doesnt seem so crazy. Kimberly Platt has always loved to cook and entertain, but in hindsight, that dinner 10 years ago foreshadowed her recent change in careers. I should have known then, she said. Im creative with my space and with what equipment I have available to me. Platt, 42, is the owner of Charlie Tulums Taco Shack and the accompanying Dos Tacos Food Truck. How she came to run a taco and catering business is a serendipitous tale, perhaps only less murky than how a turtle named Charlie made it from Tulum, Mexico, to a home in Indian Rocks Beach. Platt described his journey as smuggled and is careful to avoid the names of his current caretakers. The business named after the Mexican turtle started as a walk-up taco window on Indian Rocks Beach. Platt came on as a business partner to help launch the taco truck. Platt carves out a niche for fresh tacos in Largo Photo by JULIANA A.

4A Largo Leader, February 27, 2014research before they are approved. So for now, Coleman-Derr, 36, deals with the sight she still has. Shes been living on her own since she was 20 and dating an old schoolmate from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind for longer than that. She enjoys playing at local assisted living facilities and retirement homes. Its a service she picked up when she was visiting her grandparents in an assisted living facility back in Pennsylvania and began playing on the piano. Since then, shes volunteered at the Senior Friendship Center when she lived in Sarasota and locally, at the Grand Villa and, until recently, the Palms of Largos Regal and Cypress Palms. She takes requests, but plays whatever comes to mind, mostly pop songs, romantic melodies and Broadway numbers. Shes particularly fond of the Beatles and artists like Enya. She focuses on positive music, she said, not wanting to waste time on songs with a negative or a woe-is-me message. It was on her grandparents piano the one she still plays on today that she had her first piano lesson. She was about 2 or 3 when she sat down at the piano and began banging on the keys. Her grandfather disciplined her with only spanking I ever received and then explained how she should respect the instrument, she said. From that point on, I thought of the piano as sort of a friend, not just a thing that you bang on, she said. Generally, its sort of a metaphysical belief that when Im playing on the piano, it feels good. The piano feels good; its happy to be of use. I just get that vibration. For a short time when she was 8, Coleman-Derr had a piano teacher who taught her how to play songs by ear. But is mostly self-taught, assembling first the melody of a new song she wants to learn and then accompanying the chords. Aside from the School for the Deaf and Blind, Coleman-Derr attended Manatee College, where she earned an associates degree in psychology. She was a massage therapist for a while, certified in 2003 through the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. She plays, and also sings, for her church, a local Unitarian Universalist congregation, where shes attended for the last 10 years. In 2006, she decided to put together a CD to help benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Her debut album, which she titled Gita, is made up of her original piano compositions, including her first song Escape, written at a womens retreat; Sunset, written for her brother and Coming home, written for her mother. Coleman-Derr doesnt write songs down physically, so the concept of composing an original song is a bit abstract. She knows that some can get very mathematical with their compositions. I dont do it that way, she said. For me, its all about hearing the notes. For one of her original songs, she heard the song in her head first. It found its way into a solid melody as she began to plink it out on the piano when she came home. When I write a song, I sit down and figure out the configuration physically on the piano, and then I try to maintain it in memory, she said. If it sticks, then its a song. If it sticks. Coleman-Derr admits that Gita has not sold as well as she would have liked. Shes not the best saleswoman, she said, though those who have bought it, have said the music is very calming. I havent really written anything new in a long time, she said. I like to compose, but I think I have more fun playing songs that I know for an audience. Shes contemplated recording more of her work in another album. But I probably need to sing on that one, she said. To purchase Gita, contact Coleman-Derr at shariscd@tampabay.rr.com or 366-2291.

Chiropractic clinics hosted food driveGulf Coast Bird Rescue seeks land acquisition for rehab facilityLARGO Gulf Coast Bird Rescue, a nonprofit organization, is searching for land in Pinellas County to develop into a permanent rehabilitation facility for injured native wild birds. According to a press release, the groups original location at George C. McGough Nature Park in Largo isnt large enough for the entire scope of future operations, which would include a hospital, rehabilitation flight pens and educational facilities. Gulf Coast Bird Rescue was founded in February 2013 and has been providing volunteer rescue and transport of injured native wild birds in Pinellas County, filling a massive void in the region. In addition to rescue and rehabilitation services, GCBR plans to provide public awareness education regarding native wildlife and basic rescue procedures. The need for a rehabilitation facility, however, remains until space is found to build a permanent facility. In an area where native wild birds are such a prevalent presence in everyday life, Gulf Coast Bird Rescue provides a critical service that affects every resident in Pinellas County, said Executive Director and co-founder Robin Vergara. We stepped in to fill a void not being met and we look forward to imbedding ourselves in the community and becoming a nonprofit organization of which the community can be proud. Hospital director and co-founder Barbara Suto is a nationally known wildlife biologist who has worked for more than 30 years rehabilitating wild birds in Pinellas County. Vergara said fulfilling his groups mission would require significant funding in order to purchase the land and supplies needed, as well as to build the permanent facility. For more information and to contribute to the mission of Gulf Coast Bird Rescue, visit www.gulfcoastbirdrescue.org. Gulf Coast Bird Rescueis dedicated to preserving native wildlife through humane and professional wild bird rehabilitation, encouraging wise stewardship of our ecosystem through public education and contributing new information to the foundation of knowledge. LARGO Three Largo chiropractic clinics united to collect food for the RCS Food Bank in the Have a Heart campaign Jan. 15 through Feb. 21. Drs. Al Comey, Woody Brown and Marc Rogers and their patients were able to collect a total of 343 pounds of food in the Valentines Daythemed food drive. Each office was able to collect more than one hundred pounds of food. The combined contribution will provide an estimated 1,286 meals, according to the RCS Food Bank. Brown said he was delighted with the participation. The three chiropractic physicians plan to make this an annual effort. RCS Food Bank distributes food to people from its Clearwater warehouse and delivers food to local food pantries, homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses, soup kitchens and housing programs for the disabled and elderly.

GITA, from page 1A TACOS, from page 1A We updated the logo, did a lot of changes, she said. He was supposed to do all the food, and I was doing everything else. The food truck officially began operating Oct. 1. Eleven days later, Platts partner left abruptly during lunch service, mere days before the Dos Tacos Food Truck was scheduled to serve at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Oct. 16. I had never driven the truck. I had never cooked for that many people, Platt said. So for three days, I didnt even sleep. The trial by fire was managed with the help of some great friends and family, Platt said. She doesnt know how many tacos she served during the event, but it was great advertising for the new business. Everybody that came and ate came back that day and ate again, she said. I have no idea how I did it. The jazz festival is where Platt met the Realtor who told her about the space available for lease at 707 1/2 First Ave. SW. in Largo. The restriction that she could only be open for lunch at the location was perfect for a food truck business that primarily stayed busy during the evenings. Platt painted the tiny building bright green, trimmed in orange and blue. She landscaped the taco shacks yard with eclectic decorations and colorful patio furniture and planted a garden where she grows fresh basil and parsley that she uses in her tacos. A lot of time and money has been spent here to make this me, she said, sitting with coffee under a green umbrella in the patio area of the taco shack. Ive always had bright, colorful things. It makes you happy youre sitting in happiness. The serene lot a block away from the intersection of West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road and near OShys Irish Tap House is a bit hard to find, she admitted. But its also a great location, because if people want to leave their office and come and hide, they can do that, she said. The taco shack, which offers free Wifi, is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Charlie Tulums niche is fresh, more organic tacos. Platt, who lives in Dunedin, said she usually stops at Jams Farm Fresh Produce in Largo for ingredients on her way to the taco shack. I shop every morning. I shop as local as I can, Platt said. The taco shack is closed on Mondays because Platt attends classes at the Art Institute of Tampa that day. Shes just two classes away from an associates degree in culinary arts. Restaurant management is a new career field for Platt, but shes alwaysPhotos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, Kimberly Platt stands ready to take orders at Charlie Tulums Taco Shack, at 707 1/2 First Ave. SW. She painted and decorated the small building into a colorful taco shack, shown at right. Below right, one of Charlie Tulums chicken tacos topped with an Asian slaw.been in the food business and industry in some way, sometimes without even knowing it, she said. Aside from working in restaurants on the beach, she ran a division of her parents food recall and retrieval business, overseeing the representatives that pull products off the shelves. When her parents sold that division, Platt had a rare opportunity to make a scary and crazy change in her life. I had the ability to do anything I wanted to do, she said. At 40 years old when you decide to go back to school, its a whole other ball park. Platt traveled a lot for her previous job one year sleeping in her own bed only 26 nights total. The new lifestyle was supposed to allow her more time at home, around the time that Platt began dating longtime friend and now fiance, Lisa Deliello. My goal is to be home and with her and we have a little puppy as much as possible, because I did travel for so long, so hard, she explained. Nonetheless, Platt has been busy. She probably should have finished school before launching a business, she admitted. But Platt is one who always does everything at once, she said. Shes not sure when shell finish school. Shes taking a semester break to concentrate on Charlie Tulums and plan her beach wedding in March. She and Deliello were the 49th couple to be registered as domestic partners when Pinellas County opened the registry in April. Deliello, whos also finishing up a degree, often helps Platt on the truck. Catering and the taco truck have been most successful part of the business. When shes not serving from the truck, Platt has a much broader culinary range, specializing in varied selection of bite-size party appetizers she calls smalls. The taco shack also sells more than tacos, offering salads, soups, hot-pressed sandwiches and burritos on its menu as well as changing daily specials. Platt is open to critiques and suggestions, often telling customers, If you like us, tell us on Facebook. If you dont like us, tell us on Facebook. I take any criticism or praise, she said. I havent had too many negative comments. Growth has been steady. Platt began delivering within a two-mile radius of the taco shack about a month ago. She only recently began actively advertising her business. I can feel the business changing. I can feel Largo changing since Ive been here in October, she said. The city officials and leaders have been supportive and welcoming, she said. She recently joined the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and found its members very loyal to one another. Through the chamber, she partnered with Jay Dingman of Barley Mow to bring the truck out for a monthly event on second Thursdays, 6 to 9 p.m. A beer cheese soup she made with Barley Mow beer has already been a sold-out hit. Platt said she hopes to continually expand her customer base at the taco shack. Im hoping that I can propel the business into something that someday will be bigger than the taco shack, she said. Id like to stay here in Largo, build a business here. Im always keeping my eyes open for whats new and whats next and whats going to happen in the future. And, as soon as the Charlie Tulum brand becomes entirely hers, Platt plans on updating the logo. Charlies great; hes awesome. But he is a male and I am female, so I need something that represents me a little more, she said, explaining that the new logo will feature a girl turtle. Though she didnt come up with the mascot of her company, Charlie Tulum has been an appropriate icon to represent Platt. Shes been obsessed with turtles since she started visiting Hawaii once a year for a month at a time and fell in love with swimming alongside them. Locally, shes found herself drawn to the turtles at McGough Nature Center in Largo. Charlie Tulum will be a sponsor and food vendor at the Turtle Trot 5K on April 26, benefiting the center. And there was one more reason Platt was drawn to Charlie Tulum. A couple of years ago, she reconnected with the son whom she bore and gave up for adoption when she was 15. His name is Charlie, and he works as a chef back in Chicago. Thats why its so cosmic, this all coming together in the time frame that it did, Platt said. The road has been long and difficult, but Platt is happy with the life shes built, she said. Creating and serving food has become her passion. I love what Im doing, she said. I love feeding people. I love making people happy. The taco shack will be closed Thursday and Friday, Feb. 2728, as the taco truck heads out of town, but open again Tuesday, March 4.

When the project is finished, motorists will have a choice to use the existing roadways or take the signal-free tolled expressway and travel from U.S. 19 or the St. Petersburg Clearwater International Airport to I-275 without stopping. Officials estimate that motorists will save nine to 13 minutes during morning and afternoon commutes. Scott made his announcement at the Pinellas Realtors Organization office on Ulmerton Road in Clearwater. We are happy to hear about this exciting new project coming to Pinellas County, said David Bennett, president and CEO of the Pinellas Realtor Organization. The expressway is more than a transportation project; it is an economic development project. It is another way to connect businesses with customers and employees. We thank the governor for his leadership and hope to continue working with him on future transit oriented projects. This is the second visit from the governor to announce accelerated transportation projects. On Feb. 10, Scott told local officials gathered at the Embassy Mobile Home Park in Clearwater that another project would receive FDOT funding to accelerate completion. A new completion date was revealed for the current U.S. 19 construction project from north of Whitney Road to State Road 60 in Clearwater October of this year instead of the summer of 2015. The cost to accelerate the project is $4.8 million. When complete, the 2.7-mile project, which began in November 2009 with an estimated cost of $113.5 million, will allow for uninterrupted travel from 49th Street to Sunset Point Road.

Police beat Police beatMan arrested for shooting motherST. PETERSBURG A St. Petersburg man was arrested Feb. 20 after shooting into a vehicle occupied by his mother and father, injuring his mother who drove herself to a local hospital. Eric James Garcia, 22, was arrested at 66th Street and Central Avenue in St. Petersburg. According to deputies, that Thursday evening, Renee Garcia, 62, of Pinellas Park and her husband Luis Garcia, 59, called police and then went to try to look for their son, who had allegedly burglarized their two homes earlier in the week. One home is in the Hernando County Sheriffs Office jurisdiction, which was also set on fire, and the other home is in Pinellas Park Police Departments jurisdiction. The parents located their son in the area of Sunrise Drive and Bryan Dairy Road in Largo at which point the son began to pursue them in his vehicle. Deputies said when the vehicles reached the vicinity of Bryan Dairy Road and 98th Street, the son fired a shot into the vehicle, injuring his mom, who was driving, in the face.

Largo teen arrested for sexual batteryLARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a 16-year-old from Largo for sexual battery of a female under the age of 15. According to the sheriffs report, detectives began their investigation on Feb. 16, after the victim disclosed to a family member that Javonte Hummer had sexually battered her earlier in the week, Feb. 11, in an undisclosed location in mid-Pinellas. While speaking with the detectives, the victim, who is known to Hummer, described how she continuously refused the suspects advances until she was eventually physically restrained and sexually battered. Hummer refused to cooperate with the investigation, according to the report, but detectives amassed enough probable cause to arrest him and charge him with sexual battery. Hummer was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Man acts inappropriately around kidsDetectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and Clearwater Police Department are investigating multiple incidents where an adult male in a pickup truck made contact with students near schools. The man reportedly made lewd comments to the students and acted inappropriately. The incidents occurred near different schools in the central and north areas of Pinellas County. According to detectives, the first incident reportedly occurred in October 2013 with the most recent incident occurring within the last week. Detectives do not have a clear description of the suspect at this time. Parents are urged to speak with their children and advise them that if they see or hear of something like this occurring to please immediately tell an adult.

Dennis Jones retired from public life in 2012, the honors and accolades rolled in from around the community. Then they continued after he stepped down. But one of the biggest accolades came slightly more than a year later when Jones, a longtime leader in the Florida Legislature, a successful Pinellas County chiropractor and director of the Institute of Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, was awarded the inaugural Public Service Award from the Institute of Strategic Policy Solutions during a dinner Feb. 21 at the SPC Seminole campus. More than 200 community, education and government leaders turned out for the event, which featured comments by many of Jones colleagues during his 32-year political career. Among them was Kim Black, president of the Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association; close friend Jack Hebert, founder of the Mallard Group, which formulated most of Jones election campaigns; Jim Olliver, provost of the SPC Seminole campus and Jones son, Dr. Rod Jones. Dr. James Winterstein, president emeritus of the National University of Health Services, provided a letter of congratulations that was read aloud and Fred Lippman, chancellor of the Health Professions Division at Nova Southeastern University and a 20-year member of the Florida House of Representatives, provided a video message. I want to thank the board of directors of this institute to allow me to be your first recipient, said Jones. It certainly was a shocker to think of all of the choices you had. I appreciate it. Jones served in leadership roles in both the Florida House of Representatives and Florida Senate but perhaps his biggest accomplishment was pushing through the Florida Beach and Shore Preservation Act in 2012. The legislation authorizes the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to regulate construction on Florida beaches and offshore of state beaches. It took me 10 years to pass the beach legislation, said Jones With term limits, I could have never done it. I would have been put out to pasture before we ever could have passed the bill. And we could have never passed this legislation without the tremendous partnership we had with Congressman (Bill) Young and (his assistant) Harry Glenn. That bill, in my opinion, is one of the best bills for Florida, but its also the best partnership between the federal government, the state and our local communities. And everyone wins. Jones was a strong supporter of public education throughout his career, which continually brought the endorsement of Pinellas teachers. But his biggest goal never came to fruition, he said. Ive always supported public education, said Jones. My mom and dad were public education. I went through public education and my kids went through public education. When I got elected I made a pledge that I would do my best to get our teacher salaries to the upper core level in the nation because my parents worked their butts off and didnt get paid squat. Unfortunately, I failed. Now 32 years later, our teachers arent even close to being paid in the upper core for the work they do. I just think thats a crime. Jones discussed the days before term limits when he and Lippman, a Democrat, worked closely on a number of successful bills, which Jones attributed to team work at the time in the legislature. Thats when we worked together, said Jones. Thats when members actually talked to each other and sat down and had dinner and talked about bills. You didnt have partisanship and follow the leader. These days, life is more relaxed for Jones. He and his wife Susan live in their Dunnellon home. However, his legacy will live on for many years in Pinellas County. News briefsOnline citizen survey open through FridayPinellas County residents can take a brief online survey to share their vision about what is good and what needs improvement in Pinellas County. How do peoples priorities align with present realities? What do they want the county to be like in five years? As the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners continues to set a strategic direction for the community, feedback from the survey will help set priorities that align with the vision of the citizens they serve. Citizens can take the online survey through Friday, Feb. 28, at 5 p.m. It is available at www.pinellascounty.org and via www.pinellascounty.org/mobile for mobile devices. The Countys goal is to provide evidence-based service to the citizens of Pinellas, said Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala. This survey, along with the phone study, helps us understand the vision and values of the residents in our community. We are at the point of seeing some year-over trends and have measures against national scales as well. All of this helps us to align our efforts with the strategic plan with citizen expectation, to produce the best possible citizen experience. This is the fourth year that the county commission has collected input from residents with an online survey. It follows a statistically valid phone survey that was conducted over the course of two weeks to gather feedback from a cross-section of the countys residents. The results of both surveys will be posted online once the information is compiled.Water supply system project completeThe scheduled construction project by the Pinellas County Department of Environment and Infrastructure and Tampa Bay Water is complete as of Monday, Feb. 24. During this construction period, citizens were asked to curb all unnecessary indoor and outdoor water use. Thanks to the citizens efforts and cooperation during this construction, water consumption was reduced by approximately 5 percent, and the county was able to safely provide 50 million gallons a day to its users. The project was initially slated for completion on Feb. 28. The benefits of the upgrades to the water system will include reducing long-term operation and maintenance costs of the system by replacing aging infrastructure in addition to improving water quality management and providing a more reliable, blended supply of drinking water to Pinellas County customers. While citizens may return to their normal water use activities, they are still encouraged to practice common water conservation methods such as not running water while washing dishes, brushing teeth or shaving, limiting lawn irrigation, repairing leaky fixtures, and installing lowflow faucets and aerators. For more water-saving, bill-reducing conservation tips, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/conservation. Citizens also are reminded that Pinellas County is currently following one-day-per-week water restrictions in accordance with the Southwest Florida Water Management District Phase II Water Shortage Order, which may expire on March 1. However, it is important to note that as weather conditions change, so do water restrictions. Citizens should monitor the website www.pinellascounty.org/ utilities/water-restrict.htm in the next few days as well as on a regular basis to stay up-to-date on water restrictions and ensure their irrigation systems are operating accordingly. Pinellas County appreciates customers patience, understanding and cooperation during this event. Photo by BOB McCLUREFormer State Sen.

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. Communicate openly in your effort to receive the right health care. Advocate with confidence for you!022714 FDOT to begin construction on Gandy BoulevardST. PETERSBURG The Florida Department of Transportation is set to begin construction on an $83 million project to improve eastwest traffic flow in Pinellas County along Gandy Boulevard from Fourth Street to I-275. The design-build team of Condotte-DeMoya JV/BCC was awarded the contract to transform the existing roadway to an elevated six-lane facility (three in each direction) from I-275 to MLK Jr. Street and four lanes (two in each direction) from MLK Jr. Street to east of Fourth Street. Overpasses will be built at 94th Avenue, MLK Jr. Street, Roosevelt Boulevard and Fourth Street. A frontage road system will parallel the mainline roadway. Other features of the project will include pedestrian and bicycle accommodations along the corridor (frontage roads only), signalization, lighting, Intelligent Transportation System and landscaping. Temporary lane closures will be necessary along Gandy, MLK Jr. St., Roosevelt, and Fourth Street. Most closures will be done during off-peak hours. During peak hours, three lanes in each direction will be available between I-275 and MLK Jr. Street and two lanes in each direction from MLK Jr. Street to east of Fourth Street. Temporary detours also will be necessary, however most detours will occur during weekend hours. FDOT will host a construction open house this summer to present more information about the project to the public. The project is slated for completion in 2017.Business journal names CFO of the Year finalistsThe Tampa Bay Business Journal recently released the names of finalists for the 2014 CFO of the Year.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSMadeira Beach is moving forwardEditor: Those who have lived in Madeira Beach for any length of time may recall, albeit reluctantly, the dire straits we found ourselves in a few short years ago. Commission meetings often erupted into open warfare. Little was accomplished, and when something did manage to squeak through the cracks, it was always bitterly contested. One of the big questions asked by residents was who would be next in line to sue us. We were the laughing stock of Pinellas County and our every move subjected us to more ridicule. Today, as a result of the stewardship of Mayor Schontz, followed seamlessly by Mayor Palladino, we have become one of the most respected communities on the west coast of Florida. Our board meetings are dignified and productive and the city is moving forward with several major projects. Under construction are a Marriott hotel, a beach restaurant, significant private development, a new Publix, a new city hall and fire station and a revamped recreation center. In addition a new Walgreens is open and construction is set for a new CVS. Parks are being rebuilt and the Johns Pass and Boardwalk areas have been revitalized and are realizing unparalleled success. On top of this the Leverocks property is currently under consideration for redevelopment, the City Marina and public works complex changes are in full swing, many of our roads are scheduled for resurfacing and storm sewer and other infrastructure improvements are in the planning stages. Finally the long awaited undergrounding of utilities on Gulf Boulevard have actually begun. While the administration cannot take full credit for all of this, they can certainly take credit for having created a climate that encouraged the investment and development that made this possible. Considering where we are today, as opposed to where we were a few short years ago, I can only say my decision, as a voter has been made easy. From my vantage point in the cheap seats it seems to me Mayor Pallidino and Commissioner Hodges and Lister who are seeking reelection, deserve much of the credit. In saying this I have no intention of demeaning the contributions of the rest of the board or of the city administration. What has been accomplished, as well as what is under development or in the planning stages is a tribute to the concerted effort of all who have contributed. This is what good teams do and since we now enjoy a good team I see no reason for breaking it up. I realize those opposing the administration in this election may have much to offer. However, the thing that tips the balance for me is that in one case we are dealing with a known commodity with a certified track record while in the other we are being asked to roll the dice. Personally, given a choice I prefer not to gamble. Robert Shaw Madeira BeachAwaken the sleeping Biltmore beautyEditor: My husband and I are seasonal residents from Chicago, who own a condo for the past eight years in Bayshore II, on the hotel property. Even though the new signage gives solo billing to the Belleair Country Club, it was the hotel that bequeathed the club, and gave the town its notoriety, and I will always consider it as such. When deciding on a place to buy here, we searched up and down Pinellas County from Dunedin to Tierra Verde. We fell in love with our Belleair condo because of its small town feel. It was a lovely gated and gracefully mixed residential hidden gem. It was such a pleasant contrast to most other properties we viewed, which were cookie cutter condo clusters. And then there was this grand hotel, center stage to this Rockwell setting. Despite showing her age, and sporting a funky Godzilla entrance, she oozed history and grander times We were so excited in at its closing, that this Sleeping Beauty would awaken in to her restored glory. But people being people, could not let preservation architects proceed. Lingering law suits delaying the process, until the economy tanked. We now have another chance with a proven preservation architect in the wings that is so close to raising the capital needed to give Belleair a world-class resort again. It can be saved, despite the Ades brothers atrocities. The town graciously and heroically bought the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, in order to preserve the surrounding residents green space and subsequently protect their property values. What about the rest of your constituents? The hotel property residents who are trading a prestigious resort to Cheezems cheezy, cookie-cutter condo clusters. WE are the victims here, as we were at Tuesday nights Town Hall meeting. This was the first meeting I was able to attend, and have been a preservation advocate remotely from Chicago. I was appalled at what I witnessed. The obnoxious, rude and arrogant behavior of the Country Club members that were en masse heckling and sneering condescendingly as well as commissioners telling preservationists, to go sit down. They all politely respected, and listened to Belleair Country Clubs presentations. Which only goes to show you that money cant buy class. Really? We all taught our kids not to bully, but here in our tonie little town, well-dressed adult bullies were in abundance. I applaud Commissioner Fowler for his vote against selling off the hotel, one acre at a time. I encourage the rest to consider the impact of their decisions on ALL their constituents, not just a select few. Bring Belleair back to being synonymous with home to the Belleview Biltmore. Please give a potential Prince Charming, a six-month chance to awaken this sleeping beauty you are entrusted to. The Vinoy slept for 18 years and now is St. Petersburgs MVP. Deborah Repsold BelleairFailed leadership at EMSEditor: Regarding discussion of emergency medical cuts, I agree that the fire chiefs have problems, but it begins with the fire chiefs. About two months ago, a neighbor on the Mainlands of Tamarac had a minor fire, originating from her dishwasher. I personally counted nine fire trucks responding to this minor fire. Is there any coordination between fire departments? Who determines which fire department is to respond? Another incident but same problem: Another of my neighbors had an emergency call button and I would often see several EMS trucks at her home. On one occasion, I noticed a lady standing at this ladys garage and I asked her why she was there and she stated that she was from the Florida Department of Children and Families Services and she was waiting for a policeman to come to accompany her into the home. Soon afterward, I noticed a policeman, a Sunstar truck and a fire truck arrive. This lady is senile and soon thereafter was placed in a secure facility. Unfortunately, it took several years for any action to be taken. Why are our taxpayers responsible for failed leadership at EMS? Why hasnt our county commissioners acted on these problems? Chuck Graham Pinellas ParkRepublicans should reciprocate in name gameEditor: The Democrats refer to the Republican candidate as Lobbyist Jolly, as if it is something to be ashamed of. I cannot understand why the Republicans dont reciprocate in like manner. Use Carpetbagger Alex Sink in their ads. After all, she cannot deny it. Just thinking. K.R. Unger Seminole Mollycoddlers, soothsayers and Cox ran an employment agency. He helped employers find workers, and workers to find jobs. The parts Cox liked best were the many different people he met, and the many skills and abilities he saw in action. A man walked in and filled out an application form. Im a sooth-sayer. Cox said, Please demonstrate. The man said, Sooth. Sooth. Cox said, By gosh, you certainly are a soothsayer. Well call you as soon as we find an opening. The phone rang. It was a sad-sounding woman. My name is Molly, and I need coddling. Do you have any mollycoddlers looking for work? Cox punched several buttons on his computer. Youre in luck, Ms. Molly. Weve got three on file. Ill get in touch with them right away. The next applicant was a tall, white-haired man with a deep voice. I do spellbinding. I bind people by casting spells on them with my resonant voice and eloquent phrases. Cox said, Im sorry, but spellbinders are a dime a dozen these days. Most spellbinding is done during presidential election years. Come back in 2016. Shortly before noon, a lawn-care company phoned. The mans voice was urgent. We need all the bushwhackers you can send us. Mrs. Ellis came back from a months vacation and found all her bushes overgrown. Theres a ton of whacking to be done. Cox said, Well have six bushwhackers on your doorstep at 7 a.m. tomorrow. One of Coxs most interesting requests came from the owner of a chain of ice cream parlors. He told Cox, I need to hire about two dozen ice cream dippers. But they have to be slim. Overweight employees dipping ice cream make the customers think the workers are eating up the merchandise. Cox said, I see. What you want is skinny dippers. The ice cream man said, Thats right. Cox said, Ill do my best. Farmers sometimes contacted Cox and asked him to find trustworthy clod hoppers. He learned that term referred to persons (usually men) who hopped clods. A clod was a mound left behind when a horse or mule pulled a plow through dirt. The man guiding the horse then had to hop over the clod. A local factory owner stormed into Coxs office one day and demanded a refund on the fee Cox had charged him the previous week. Whats wrong? said Cox. The customer said, You sent me a job jumper! He never stays put for more than a week. Then he jumps to another job. Cox gave the man his money, and then put a sign in the front window: Job jumpers need not apply. Cox posted another sign saying, Bookkeeper wanted. The next day a woman applied for the opening. Cox tested her by having her inspect his accounts-receivable file. She glanced at the file and said, What do all these numbers mean? Cox said, Arent you a bookkeeper? She replied, Yes. I buy books and then keep them. I love books. Do you have any for me to keep? One day Cox bought a copy of the local newspaper, the Gazette. It was not a bad paper, but it lacked excitement. Cox said to himself, The Gazette needs to rake more muck. Ill check my files and see if I can send a few muckrakers over to the Gazettes editor. A gorgeous blonde walked into Coxs office. She stood 5 foot 9 inches tall with a blinding smile and a figure that could cause digital clocks to run backwards. Cox said, Miss, what is your occupation? She said, Im a head-turner. Wherever I go, heads turn and people smile at me. Cox said, Thats nice, but how do you earn money? The lady giggled and said, Youd be surprised. Cox said, Ill sign you up. Im sure we can find a place for your talents. The two job candidates that Cox could not help were a boondoggler and a hornswoggler. A boondoggler took bona fide tasks and after a few months turned them into expensive, time-wasting dead ends. The job market was overflowing with boondogglers, but nobody wanted to hire them. On the other hand, a hornswoggler was simply a deceiver, a liar or a cheat. He/she roamed the countryside searching for unsuspecting horns to swoggle. Nobody knew where the terms boondoggler and hornswoggler came from. Cox solved this problem by referring such job-hunters to Angies List. He was sure Angie would make short shrift of them. One night Cox dreamed of a woman named Molly being coddled by a soothsaying, bushwhacking skinny dipper while both of them stood knee-deep in muck with rakes in their hands. It was a complicated dream, but when Cox awoke he knew instantly what it meant. It meant that he loved his work. Can you think of a happier dream for a fellow to have?Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver An ode to spring, Dunedin, baseballI grew up on baseball. The first outfit my dad bought me was a New York Mets onesie. Ive spent almost every Fathers Day for the last 10 years at Tropicana Field. Birthday parties were planned around Little League softball games. I can track my life from spring training to the World Series. Opening Night is my New Years Eve. Baseball has a way of calming me down. Theres no headache-inducing back-and-forth motion like in basketball or tennis, or grating crunch of bone against helmet like in hockey or football. Its quiet and exhilarating all at the same time, with the soft hiss of wind as a fly ball whooshes past or the puff of red dust as a runner beats the tag at second base. Theres a sweet simplicity to baseball that never ceases to amaze me. But its not all quiet. Bats break and umpires yell and fans cheer. Baseball can be loud. And I love that, too. I love that in downtown Dunedin, at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, the fans belt the Canadian national anthem louder than the Star Spangled Banner. Emerging from the depths of Ontario and Alberta, they sing, with their Blue Jays hats clenched to their chests, about patriot love and the True North. I love that the thermometer reads 75 degrees Fahrenheit and that the sun peeks between palm trees and that if you breathe in deeply, you can almost smell the salt from the Gulf of Mexico. I love that for six weeks a year, near the corner of Douglas Avenue and Beltrees Street, baseball spring training makes Dunedin loud. From just inside the Dunedin Public Library, you can tell when the Blue Jays get a hit. Faintly, but still audible above the hum of the computer, you can hear the cheers as the batter rounds first base or the runner slides across home plate in a cloud of red dirt. The parking lot of Curtis Fundamental Elementary School, typically empty on weekends, overflows with Blue Jays bumper stickers and trunks stuffed with Little League gear for Sunday morning games. That was my family, before school and leg injuries got in the way. Signs sprinkle the ground advertising parking costs: $15 at the front of the stadium, $10 along the side and $5 in the lot tucked quietly in the back. Old men in once-white knee socks and Gray Jays hats sit in beach chairs on the sidewalk with tickets to put on your dashboard, a lazy parking pass. Inside, the audio system at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium blasts ringtone favorites: Gangam Style and Call Me Maybe and Harlem Shake (not my ringtone. Not anymore, at least). The outfield wall is lined with advertisements, Budweiser at the left field foul pole, Sea Dog Brewing Co. next to the scoreboard and Lucky Dill Deli behind the right fielder. A vendor, having claimed his territory in the blue stands behind home plate, sells peanuts and sunshine (the peanuts didnt taste any different than the ones you can buy in a bag at Publix, but the thought was nice). And through nine innings of not-quite-flawless baseball, the Blue Jays made Dunedin loud. Past the stadium and the parking lots and the traffic, downtown Dunedin whispers with the hum of a spring fair. Homemade jewelry and craft beer line the sidewalks and vendors and onlookers mingle with questions of price and quality (I abstained when I couldnt haggle the price of a bracelet down to $3).And hidden between the trinkets and treasures, underneath a mound of mismatched earrings and scarves, peeks a faded Blue Jays hat. A Toronto maple leaf flag pin. A signed baseball from players long gone (or so the dealer told me; I didnt recognize any of the names).In Florida, spring means heat and mosquitoes and red tide. But it also means baseball. And thats enough for me.Kate Feldman is editor of the Tarpon Springs Beacon. Email her at kfeldman@tbnweekly .com We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

The stop was one of 50 in the Fighting for Our Childrens Future National Bus Tour, a cross-country, year-long effort to raise awareness for the profound impact an excellent education can make on a childs life, and to celebrate the unique role Catholic schools play as agents of human formation and social transformation. Sacred Heart Catholic School, at 7951 46th Way N. in Pinellas Park, is one of two schools in the Tampa Bay area that partners with the university as a Notre Dame ACE Academies.

Its funny how we can spend so much money going out to a fancy restaurant for a special occasion or that date we rarely get now because we have kids. Recently my husband took me out for a wonderful date. It was a kayak adventure on our awesome waterways in Pinellas. We are so fortunate to live in an area where we have such beautiful water all around us. My husband decided he was going to do something different than the normal date night. He wanted to do a sunset kayak cruise. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. We took the kayak out and trolled through the water for a while. We stopped and fished a little. Even though we didnt catch anything, we still had a few nibbles so it was fun. We decided to head to one of the islands. On the island we found some unique tree stumps to sit on to have a picnic as the sun set. As I was watching the sunset, I thought about how beautiful and relaxing it was to just sit and not have a care in the world. It was so peaceful. How often do we get to take a few moments to not have television, computers, phones and kids vying for our time? Every once in a while we need to take time out for ourselves as moms and parents and get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We need to relax and enjoy nature and its beauty. It is at these times that the basics can be the most fun and most memorable. Think about it: what date do you remember most? How about that walk in the park, the trip to the beach, feeding ducks together at the duck pond, riding bikes on the trail, picnicking, swinging in a hammock or gazing at the stars. All of which are relatively free. As we started heading back in after the sun went down, I thought the only thing that could add to this beautiful day would be a dolphin. I dont know what it is, but seeing a dolphin swim around you in the water is just an amazing feeling. I began searching for a dolphin once we got in the kayak, but there were none to be seen. As fate would have it, just before I gave up hope, we were surrounded by two sets of dolphin on each side. It was the completion to a perfect date.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

I feel that we should be focused on decreasing the cost of care. Medicare fund or cut and why. Jolly: I have said from the beginning of this campaign that we need to protect the promises that have been made to everyone. Pinellas seniors and those who have planned for Medicare should not be faced with reduction in Medicare benefits, including Medicare Advantage. Sink: Medicare is a promise made to our seniors who have earned it. We must keep that promise to Pinellas seniors. Overby: While I feel that we need to be looking for ways to make Medicare more efficient, I do not feel that we are in a place to blindly cut funding. Should the minimum wage be increased? Explain your answer. Jolly: I believe that minimum wage should be indexed to inflation or subject to a cost-of-living adjustment like any other federal income program, meaning some years it may go up, other years it may stay static. Sink: The minimum wage should be increased to allow hard working Pinellas residents to earn a living wage. Raising the minimum wage will put more money in the hands of workers and boost our economy. Overby: I am opposed to raising the minimum wage. Instead I am in favor of decreasing taxes and allowing people to keep more of what they earn and allow businesses more availability for hiring. Flood insurance reform how do you fix NFIP and keep insurance affordable for property owners? Jolly: I believe we should replace the National Flood Insurance Program with a new natural disaster insurance program that better aggregates and diversifies risk across all regions and all types of disasters, from earthquakes in the west, to snow in the northeast and northwest, to tornadoes in the Midwest, to floods and fires throughout the country but then only until state-based solutions, like those currently under consideration in Florida, are enacted. Sink: The flood insurance crisis is one of the main reasons I got in this race. We must stop the flood insurance rate spike from impacting Pinellas homeowners. I have outlined my principles to tackle this crisis, which involve holding FEMA accountable and increasing transparency and affordability for homeowners, and rolling back the rate spike. I encourage residents to look at the full details of my proposals on my website, www.AlexForCongress.com. Overby: Short term, I am in favor of delivering a hold on the rate hikes for all citizens and helping Florida move forward with privatization. I do not feel that the NFIP can be saved in a way that we will not run into these problems again and any expansion will inevitably lead to even larger problems down the road. Social Security how do you sustain it for the future, or do you? Jolly: I believe we have to protect benefits not just for current beneficiaries, but also for those who have already vested into social security through 40 quarters (or 10 years) of employment. Sink: I am proud to be the only candidate in this race who has been perfectly clear about my commitment to protecting and preserving the Social Security benefits that Pinellas seniors have earned, and I am proud to have been endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. While Social Security will remain viable for the next two decades as is, the best long-term solution is to get our economy growing again with more high-paying, sustainable jobs. Overby: I am in the process of working through several voluntary options for removal of high income recipients, as well as restructuring options for retirement age and cost of living. At this point I am unwilling to abandon SS by arbitrarily placing the cost on one generation in favor of another. Gay marriage for or against Jolly: As a matter of faith, I believe in traditional marriage. However, I do not object to states choosing to allow same-sex marriage. The sanctity of marriage is between two individuals and their God. Sink: I support marriage equality. Overby: For. Legalizing medical marijuana for or against Jolly: I am against legalizing medical marijuana through a ballot initiative. Sink: I have seen firsthand how medicinal marijuana could help those suffering from serious diseases and illnesses, and I want those who are suffering to be able to receive the care they need. I am concerned about the prospect of a marijuana store on every corner, and would want to carefully review the specifics of proposals to legalize it. Overby: For. Is immigration reform headed in the right direction? Jolly: We are a loving and caring nation that is better because of legal immigration. It should be encouraged. But we must secure our borders against those who flagrantly ignore our nations immigration laws. People who enter our country illegally simply cannot be given special treatment over those who have been patiently waiting in their country of origin to enter our country legally. Sink: I support the Senates bipartisan immigration reform bill and I urge the House of Representatives to pass it. Overby: The Senate Bill is a good first step. Is a balanced budget important for the federal government? Jolly: Yes, I support a balanced budget amendment. Sink: To get our fiscal house in order we must start cutting our debt and balancing budgets by cutting wasteful spending and closing tax loopholes so that big corporations and the wealthiest few are paying their fair share. What we cannot do is try and balance the budget on the backs of seniors, veterans, and middle class Pinellas families. Overby: Conceptually it is a good idea; however the wording would need to be very specific that taxes cannot be raised to balance the budget. Funding for beach nourishment is dwindling, how can you help? Jolly: I worked with Congressman Bill Young for nearly 20 years on issues important to Pinellas County, including beach renourishment. It is experience I bring to this campaign. I intend to carry on his work not just on funding for beach renourishment on reauthorization of renourishment programs that protect our beaches, our quality of life and our economy. Sink: Here in Pinellas County we know better than most that healthy beaches mean a healthy economy. I am fully committed to protecting our beautiful beaches and the economy they support, and in Congress I will be a strong and vocal advocate to ensure our beaches receive the resources we need. Overby: I have already been working with local candidates and officials on ways that local communities could deal with the issues of beach renourishment and sustainability outside of the federal funds. This would make Pinellas County beach communities more self-sufficient and more in control of their own environment. Do you approve of Greenlight Pinellas? If so, will you push for federal money to help fund it? If you dont approve of Greenlight Pinellas, will you seek federal funds for other projects to improve transportation in Pinellas? Jolly: Infrastructure and transportation improvements are always beneficial. I personally will vote against Greenlight because of the tax increase. If elected, and the voters approve of Greenlight in November, I will work in Congress to ensure federal funds are provided to ensure the programs success. Sink: I support measures that will improve Pinellas transportation infrastructure. If voters approve the measure it will be my responsibility to work with the administration to get the federal matching funds. Overby: I am opposed to Greenlight largely because of the negative impact on low-income residents of raising costs in the county to pay for it. I have been working with residents on both sides of the issue to help find solutions to our mass transportation needs, but those solutions will not contain federal funding. If elected, what is the No. 1 thing you can do for the people you serve in Pinellas? Jolly: Immediately continue the legacy of constituent and community service that our late Congressman Young was known for. Serving in Congress means first taking care of Pinellas County. Sink: I will work to bring Republicans and Democrats together to break the gridlock and get things done for Pinellas County. I have practiced these bipartisan, results-oriented values my entire life, and its those values I will take to Congress. Overby: The number one focus should be on restructuring and decreasing taxes, helping to bring back a strong small business environment, and making conditions more suitable for the middle class. Accusations are flying as the campaign heats up. What one thing would you like to set straight? Jolly: My opponent and outside groups have continued to misrepresent my position on Social Security and Medicare reform. I do not believe in privatizing Social Security or turning Medicare into a voucher program. The Tampa Bay Times and multiple fact check organizations have repeatedly found those claims to be false yet some in this campaign continue to use such false allegations simply to scare seniors. The voters deserve better. Sink: No matter what the attack ads may say, my record as a fiscal conservative and moderate Democrat is not up for debate. As the Chief Financial Officer, we cracked down on wasteful spending and protected tax dollars taking the best ideas from the private sector to make government do more with less. We introduced commonsense initiatives that saved millions for Floridians by cutting red tape and introducing performance metrics to hold government accountable for waste and abuse, and Ill do the same in Congress. Overby: No answer. Do you think your political party will help or hurt your chances of winning the election? Jolly: Elections should always be decided on where individual candidates stand on the issues. I believe my positions on lower taxes, healthcare and flood insurance resonate strongly with the voters. Sink: Thats for the political pundits to decide. Voters are sick and tired of the dysfunction and gridlock in Washington, and theyre ready for Republicans and Democrats to come together to start getting things done Im running for Congress to do just that. Overby: I feel that in this particular election my party affiliation has helped. For more information on the candidates, visit davidjolly.com, alexforcongress.com and lucasoverby.com.

Kathleen Peters recently filed Senate Bill 1090 and House Bill 979, respectively, to expand grant programs to Florida communities to help fund temporary and transitional housing and services for the homeless. This bill also will provide training and technical support to qualified agencies serving Floridas homeless. Florida has the third highest number of homeless people in the country, and the recent recession has drastically limited our ability to fund existing housing programs, said Latvala. Because the economy is recovering and we will have a surplus this next budget year, I decided to tackle this issue by working together with experts in Florida to develop this bill. Peters said, This bill will assist local communities in providing our most vulnerable citizens with their basic needs of food and shelter as well as other program services. Challenge Grants may be used for housing or services for the homeless and will be awarded based on the degree of homelessness in a community and the ability of local government and private organizations to provide matching funds. The bill also directs a portion of State Housing Initiatives Partnership program funding to be used by the Department of Children and Families to distribute to homeless programs.

16A Outdoors Leader, February 27, 2014 202714 Trout, redfish action heats upLast week we started to get a taste for things to come in the fishing world. As the water warmed over several days of upper 70-degree weather, the fish responded. Trout fishing on the strong part of the incoming tide was phenomenal. Schools of adult trout can be found around many of the spoil islands in the northern part of the county. Whether you choose to cast artificials, or free-line a variety of different kinds of live bait, this good fishing opportunity should continue for weeks to come. Redfish were on the chew last week as well. Big afternoon high tides allowed the reds to make their way up to the mangroves where they could scour oyster mounds for crabs. Casting live shrimp under a float up to the oyster mounds is perhaps one of the best ways to catch redfish in our area; the strikes can be explosive. As water temperatures continue to rise it came as no surprise that Spanish mackerel would begin to show up as they take advantage of the first real bait stocks of the spring season. Deep grass patches near the passes will hold the small bait that the mackerel are feeding on. Cast weighted jigs, spoons or live shrimp with a long shanked hook when targeting the mackerel. Offshore bottom fishing has been excellent for mangrove snapper. Ledges and artificial reefs in 30 to 50 feet of water are holding snapper ranging in size from 12 to 18 inches. Dropping down a chum basket will encourage the mangos to go on a feeding frenzy. Small live shrimp on a small hook and a long light leader with half ounce up to an ounce and a half sliding sinker will put you in the game. 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@TBN weekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.comState agency records third highest manatee count since 1991Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported a preliminary count of 4,831 manatees in Florida during this years statewide aerial survey, conducted in late January. A team of 20 observers from nine organizations counted 2,317 manatees on Floridas east coast and 2,514 on the west coast of the state. This years manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991, said Gil McRae, director of the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently. Information on warm-water habitat use from this years survey will be integrated with manatee survival and reproductive rates to update future population projections. The goal of the aerial manatee survey is to count as many manatees as possible, providing researchers with a minimum number for manatees in Florida waters and a snapshot of where they are at the time of the survey. Weather conditions and manatee behavior during the survey have a large effect on survey counts. Because these factors vary from year to year, this count cannot be used to determine long-term population trends. After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive, strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted, said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. The surveys highlight the importance of warm-water habitat to manatees in the winter, increasing researchers understanding of manatee distribution and relative use of these areas that are essential to manatee health and survival. The survey information helps managers better protect this endangered species. Researchers have been conducting statewide aerial surveys since 1991, weather permitting, to meet the states requirement for an annual count of manatees in Florida waters. Statewide aerial surveys were not conducted during the winters of 2012 and 2013 due to warm-weather conditions. Florida residents can help manatees by purchasing a manatee specialty license plate and a manatee decal. Funds from the license plate and decal support manatee research and conservation. Go to BuyaPlate.com to learn more about the license plate and MyFWC.com/ManateeSeaTurtleDecals to purchase a decal. Both items are available at county tax collectors offices.

Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Merelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe hes dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Merellis Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking hes Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Merelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. This production is directed by Toby Manion.

A band of determined Russian soldiers fight to hold a strategic building in their devastated city against a ruthless German army, and in the process become deeply connected to a Russian woman who has been living there. In Stalingrad, directed by Fedor Bondarchuk, the scale of the battle contrasts dramatically with the human drama of the Russian soldiers, the few remaining civilians and their invaders into Stalingrad.Odd ThomasGenre: Action and supernatural thriller Cast: Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nico Tortorella, Patton Oswalt and Willem Dafoe Director: Stephen Sommers Not rated Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere.

Hes parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the untimely death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Mike Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. What may be simple to grasp for some is the idea that single actions in the past comprise tidal waves of reactions in the present. The LunchboxGenre: Drama, fantasy and romance Cast: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nakul Vaid Director: Ritesh Batra Rated: PG Middle class housewife Ila is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that this new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan, a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following days lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery. This begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. They each discover a new sense of self and find an anchor to hold on to in the big city of Mumbai that so often crushes hopes and dreams.

RLJ/Image Entertainment will be releasing Odd Thomas in theaters on Feb. 28. Locally, the film will play AMC Woodland Square 20, 3128 Tampa Road, Oldsmar. The paranormal thriller Odd Thomas, starring Anton Yelchin in the titular role, is based on the 2003 Dean Koontz novel of the same name. American filmmaker Stephen Sommers responsible for films such as The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra embraced the challenge of bringing the story to the big screen. The result is a splendidly entertaining and entrancing endeavor that blends horror, romance, action and humor. Sommers adaptation of the material is quirky, stylish and audacious. The film begins with a succinct prologue introducing the central character and outlining his extraordinary supernatural gifts. In addition to seeing dead people, the audience learns he doesnt just shrug off the lost souls seeking justice: He acts in their behalf. Odd also has the ability to see bodachs demonic wraiths who feed on pain and gather en masse whenever they sense imminent carnage. When a stranger stumbles into the diner during the breakfast rush, Odd is unsettled by the number of bodachs following him. Sensing impending doom, Odd pursues the pariah aptly named Fungus Man and gradually he and his girlfriend Stormy (Addison Timlin) are drawn into a complicated mystery. Odd comes to believe he may be the only thing that can prevent a looming catastrophe. Yelchin truly anchors this unconventional tale. His outstanding portrayal of this idiosyncratic character is intuitive: He manages to make Odds supernatural abilities believable. Yelchins Odd is charming, noble and down-to-earth. He plays the self-effacing paranormal superhero so flawlessly its difficult to imagine anyone else in the role. On his website, Koontz commented on Yelchins take on his character, stating that he brings great heart to the role and he captures Odds humility. Stephen Sommers, the director, said from day one that Anton Yelchin was his only choice to play Odd and that if Anton didnt want to do it, the film would never be quite what it could have been, Koontz wrote. Ill admit to being skeptical. But once you see Anton in this, you know you have Dafoe, who plays Wyatt Porter, the police chief who knows about Odds gift and welcomes his assistance. And then theres Shuler Hensley, who plays Fungus Bob. For someone with virtually no dialog, his performance is one that will be remembered for quite some time by anyone who sees this film. While the acting is first-rate, Sommers film suffers from a handful of flaws. As with any adaptation, the story is condensed leading to a few noticeable plot holes, a narrative that is at times untidy and one or two pesky dont-go-in-there moments so common in the horror genre. The brisk comic-book pacing, the post-Whedon snarky banter and fine acting help keep this matinee movie fare fresh and fun. While Yelchin sells Odd Thomas, Sommers gets credit for orchestrating the unique oddball, even amalgamation of action and romance, horror and comedy. With its deliciously weird sense of humor, its vigorous pace and its subtle but haunting ideas about death, Odd Thomas manages to divert and amuse and it even packs a surprising emotional wallop. Fans of the book will likely enjoy the film, even if the tale is truncated. More importantly, the film will introduce those not familiar with Koontzs novel to the literary character. The author has written a series of books around Odd Thomas, with titles such as Forever Odd, Brother Odd Odd Apocalypse and House of Odd. See the movie then read the books.Movie review seen the best of all possible Odds. Timlin also gives a solid, nuanced performance as Stormy. It always helps when two romantically paired characters manage to show on-screen chemistry, and Yelchin and Timlin achieve that in Odd Thomas.

Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is considered one of the main catalysts for an entire movement in country rock and American roots music. The band boasts a solid string of multi-platinum and gold records as well as Top 10 hits such as Fishin In The Dark and Mr. Bojangles. Over the years, the band has racked up multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA awards and nominations. The band traces its history back to Long Beach, Calif. Founded in 1966, NGDB came together when singer-guitarist Jeff Hanna and singer-songwriter guitarist Bruce Kunkel took part in informal jam sessions seeking like-minded musicians to form a group. Among those they came into contact with during the sessions were guitarist/washtub bassist Ralph Barr, guitarist-clarinetist Les Thompson, harmonicist and jug player Jimmie Fadden and guitarist-vocalist Jackson Browne. Browne joined, but remained only a few months before exiting to focus on a solo career. The band evolved from a novelty jug band into a leader of the California folk rock scene. Liberty Records signed the band and in 1967 released its debut album, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band which included the Top 40 hit Buy for Me the Rain. NGDB followed with Ricochet (1967) and Rare Junk (1968), as well as the live album Alive (1969), all of which failed to achieve commercial success. On stage, however, the band continued to attract fans, opening for acts such as Jack Photo courtesy of WME ENTERTAINMENTThe Nitty Gritty Dirt Band takes the stage at Clearwaters Capitol Theatre on March 6.Benny, Bill Cosby and The Doors. In 1969, the band appeared in the musical western Paint Your Wagon, performing Hand Me Down That Can o Beans. By 1970, the band was pioneering the country rock sound. The album Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy featured the bands best known single, Mr. Bojangles. On their next album, the band teamed up with country-western icons such as Roy Acuff, Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, Merle Travis and Jimmy Martin. Will the Circle be Unbroken was released as a three-record set in 1972. It included the singles I Saw the Light, Honky Tonkin and Grand Ole Opry Song. By this time, the band had undergone a number of personnel changes. In fact, Hanna and Fadden are the only two members to have stuck with the band through its many incarnations. For a short time, the band recorded and performed as The Dirt Band, but in 1982 members reclaimed the full name. During the 1980s, NGDB scored a string of hits on the U.S. country charts, beginning with Dance Little Jean in 1983 and continuing with Long Hard Road (The Sharecroppers Dream), I Love Only You, High Horse, Modern Day Romance, Home Again in My Heart, Stand a Little Rain, Fishin in the Dark and Ive Been Lookin. Now nearing their fifth decade together, NGDB continues to add to their legendary status. Their groundbreaking Will The Circle Be Unbroken album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame. NGDBs recording of Mr. Bojangles was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010. Today, NGDB features Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen. The groups most recent studio release was the critically acclaimed 2009 album Speed of Life. In 2013, Capitol/EMI reissued in its original form on vinyl Will The Circle Be Unbroken for its 40th anniversary.
