TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners unanimously passed three measures promoting less tobacco use within the city March 4. Two of the measures were resolutions, but commissioners also supported a new ordinance banning smoking in park structures such as playgrounds, shelters, gazebos, fitness areas and tennis courts. The proposed ordinance had two goals, explained Parks Superintendent Greg Brown. First, the city already had signs on its playgrounds designating them as no smoking zones. We do kindly ask people to step outside but we have nothing to back that up, Brown said. Second, the new rule would give law enforcement another tool to deal with teenagers hanging out in Largo Central Park and causing issues for regular park patrons, Brown added. It sort of takes the ability for people to congregate and smoke in a park structure away, he said. Commissioner Jamie Robinson said he supported the measure to fine violaters but didnt think it went far enough. If the kids can stand all around the gazebo, it doesnt matter if theyre in it or outside of it. Its the same group of kids in the same spot. I really do understand where youre coming from in trying to break that cycle up, but if were going to do it, just do the whole park, he said. Brown explained that specifying no smoking in park structures made the ordinance logistically easier to enforce. The ordinance allows the city to temporarily declare certain areas smoke-free, allowing them to put up signs around lines of children for Largo Central Parks train weekend or Halloween Spooktacular. Largo police are in favor of the ordinance, which has to be approved in a final public hearing March 18. As one of the first actions in the meeting March 4, the city proclaimed itsHomeless man charged with murder By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo police arrested William Sargent Coffin III Feb. 25 and charged him with first-degree murder in the death of 50-year-old Patricia Canon King. Described as a permanent transient, Coffin met King not long before police found her body at 3:11 a.m. Feb. 6, in her home at 1008 10th Ave. NW., said Largo Police Department spokesman Lt. Paul Amodeo. The day before, she had invited Coffin over after they struck up a conversation near her home. While he was there, he stole some jewelry he later tried to sell, Amodeo said. He later returned to her home and had sex with King. It appeared to be consensual. We dont have anything to believe that it wasnt, Amodeo said. But it was during the second visit that Coffin stabbed King in the neck multiple times, police reported. Coffin was a known subject in the investigation even when police began looking into the Kings death earlier this month, Amodeo said. However, it was DNA evidence found at the scene of the crime and processed by Pinellas County Forensic Laboratories that linked the homicide back to him. Once the evidence was identified, detectives were able to quickly find Coffin and match the evidence to him enough to file charges. The department has not released what kind of DNA evidence the forensics team found.All aboard the art busThis weeks Art Hop to benefit Largo library foundation By BRIAN GOFFLARGO The annual Art Hop and Taste Fest on Saturday, March 8 brings together Largos top artists and performers with some great food and entertainment. Organizers are confident that the event, one of Largos premiere social events of the year, will raise the money needed to help with the citys library. Scott Thompson, CEO of the Greater Largo Library Foundation and the chief organizer of the event, explained that the money raised goes straight to the library. We fund programs at the library that the city budget does not cover, he said. We support the English Second Language learning center, we buy mobile carts so people can get around, and we financed the wireless communication system so the employees can communicate without having to go to a phone. Heres how the Art Hop works. Residents pay $35 in advance or $40 at the library door on Saturday at 6 p.m. Then everyone gets on a bus tour to four different locations in the city: McGill Plumbing, Side Door Antiques, Largo Feed Sore and the Pinecrest Retirement Village. At each stop, a different artists work will be on display for those on William Sargent Coffin III Photo courtesy of SCOTT THOMPSONArtist JoAnn Flagg displays her work at last years Art Hop at Largo Public Library. This years event is March 8.Order extends water restrictions By SUZETTE PORTERAs of March 1, Pinellas County residents can water their lawns and landscape plants twice a week before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. The governing board for the Southwest Florida Water Management District, referred to as Swiftmud, extended the Phase II Water Shortage order in the Tampa Bay area on Feb. 25; however, the new order allows up to two watering days per week. We are asking residents to continue to be prudent with their water use, especially outdoor irrigation, at this time. Its important to be mindful of our water supply, said District Chairman Carlos Beruff. The board enacted Phase II Water Shortage restrictions Dec. 17 due to reduced river levels and increasing water supply concerns. Restrictions for lawn watering were expected to continue throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The extended order follows a seasonal feature of Phase II, which recognizes that reasonable lawn irrigation needs may be higher in spring and summer, when days are longer and temperatures are hotter than the winter months, Swiftmud officials said in a press release. Phase II restrictions will continue through at least July 31, depending on the amount of rainfall the area receives. Under Phase II, local enforcement requirements continue to be in effect and homeowners associations still may not enforce any deed restrictions in a manner, which could cause an See ART HOP, page 4A See WATER, page 4A See MURDER, page 4A See SMOKING, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . . .10A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Military . . . . . . . . . . .11A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .15A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .16A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising VIEWPOINTSTom MichalskiNew blood needed in political offices.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerIndependence and Aging in PlaceFor many of us boomers, we reflect often on a timeline of goals we wish to achieve and assess what truly nourishes our happiness in looking ahead. Spending time with family, maintaining good health, enjoying a stable work environment, and enjoying our special hobbies are likely at the top of the list. Lets add enjoying our independence to this. We enjoy the freedom to control what we do and where we go which is a blessing, one we take for granted. In our Comfort Keepers in home care business we witness daily the dilemma our senior clients face when they lose what they have owned for so many years, their independence. At one time, they too were in the work force sharing their talents in a career, actively raising families, and enjoyed physical hobbies. Imagine when the day arrives our senior loved ones face physical and/or mental losses. Control is so important to any adult, therefore, the loss of it can create feelings of uselessness, sadness, frustration and even guilt as they do not wish to be a burden to their loved ones. There is no rule book as to how to help your aging parent cope with the loss of independence. Be patient and help them understand this is not a personal failure and reassure them you will do everything you can to keep them engaged with family and friends. The toughest moment is when they can no longer drive. It is a normal function for most us to jump in our car day in and day out. Try to imagine the sense of loss your loved one is feeling by giving up this integral part of their independence. Try to not dismiss their feelings and be there to help with the transition. You can offer your support, encouragement and suggest options of transportation along with offering rides whenever possible. Safety in the home is crucial for your loved one to remain there. A clear path to each room is the best practice. Be sure there are not too many throw rugs or cords to trip on and if there are, secure them. Grab bars in the bathrooms by the shower and the stool are great safety tools. A large percentage of our potential calls are driven from mom or dad need bathing assistance and meal prep. The ability to bathe and cook are two areas that can directly extend the months or years people are able to age in place. Comfort Keepers provides guidance on how to make the home safer as the natural changes of aging come along. We plan physical activities appropriate to each clients health condition from walks to helping around the house. Exercise helps balance and the range of motionWe are here to keep your loved one comfortable and safe in their home.030614"Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength."

4A Largo Leader, March 6, 2014increase in water use. Micro-irrigation and hand watering of non-lawn areas can be done any day, if needed. Watering by any source must be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Swiftmud encourages residents to practice Florida-friendly landscaping principles and to water lawns only when needed. The simplest way to determine if your yard needs water is if your grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of your yard, appear blue-gray, or do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it, according to the press release. The Tampa Bay area relies on the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir during the dry season; however, the reservoir is currently being repaired and is out of service.Lawn watering schedule and timesLawn watering days and times for the twice-per-week schedule are as follows unless a municipality has a different schedule or stricter hours in effect. Call the phone number on your water bill if you have questions. Watering can only be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday Locations without a discernable address, such as rights-of-way and other common areas inside a subdivision, may water on Tuesday and/or FridayNew lawns and plantsNew lawns and plants have a 60-day establishment period. On days one to 30, they may be watered any day of the week. During days 31 to 60, they may be watered approximately every other day. Even-numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Oddnumbered addresses may be watered on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. For more information about water restrictions and water conservation, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities or visit WaterMatters.org/ Restrictions. Coffin is a known homeless man in the Seminole area, Amodeo said. Largo police last arrested him for burglary with battery on Dec. 4, 2012. During that incident, Coffin reportedly entered an apartment uninvited and grabbed a woman by her neck, taking her down. If you call 911 or scream for your daughter, Ill kill you, he said, according to Largos report at the time. The victim in that incident did scream and her daughter, a young adult, came in and was able to push Coffin off her mother, Amodeo said. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office arrested Coffin in July of that year on behalf of Hernando County, where he was wanted for aggravated assault, according to Pinellas County jail records. Sheriffs deputies arrested him again in November 2012 for petit theft. Largo police are still investigating the Feb. 20 shooting of Kristen Gannon, 41, who was shot in the leg by a man at the Fountains of Largo apartments. Investigators are looking for the suspect in that incident. Coffin was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where he is being held without bond.

By 8 p.m., the tour will conclude back at the library where 25 other artists and performers will be gathered. Georgia artist Jace McTier is the featured artist of the event. Also featured will be Rising Star artist Lisa Bagley, an art teacher from Largo High. Jazz singer Lisa Casalino of Tampa will provide the entertainment for the evening. This years event will include art displays from the students from Largo High, Largo Middle School and Largo Elementary. In addition, there is food sampling and, according to Thompson, a rather large silent auction. We have over 100 items for bid in the auction, he said. There are sulllllllch things as massage packages, golf packages and boat cruises. McGill Plumbing general manager Shane Wood said he is only too happy to participate in the Art Hop. It is important to get involved in the community, he said. The Largo community has been good to McGill Plumbing for a long time, and now that Im in a position to help, I will. Anything we can do to get people out and about we will do it. I want to help out. Wood is excited about the event even though it may cause a little disruption to his business. We have a great venue here to host an artist and display the art. It will be good to have people come through here and be part of the festivities, he said. This is the first year Wood will participate in the event, but already he can foresee getting involved next year. I dont see any reason to think I wouldnt get involved, he said. I like what the library foundation is doing and if it is going to help support the local library, then Im all for it. The library foundation started in 1987. This will be the seventh year the foundation has run the Art Hop, bringing in lots of funds to support the library. Were looking at making around $20,000, said Thompson. It is our main fundraiser of the year. As much fun as it sounds, Thompson said it isnt easy to put together the event year after year. It really takes a good group of volunteers about a year to put it together, he said. We will start working on next years event in May. Thompson also is quick to point out that it takes generous sponsors to make it happen as well. In addition to the four participating sponsors, the foundation also has the help of a group of main sponsors. They are: Raymond James, Largo Medical Center, C1 Bank and the Palms of Largo. Thompson said that despite the work that goes into making the event happen, it is all worth it, not just for the monetary return but also for what it does for the community. At the end of the night you feel good, he said. It is a great event where people have a great time, and it is rewarding to see people leave happy knowing they have supported the library and the foundation.Photos courtesy of SCOTT THOMPSONAbove, Debbie Welsh, owner of Coutured of Largo, left, and boutique manager Carmen Chaseat last years Art Hop at Largo Public Library.

ART HOP, from page 1A SMOKING, from page 1APlaying Unplugged event, held April 26 at Largo Central Park, a tobacco-free event. In support of the measure, the Pinellas County Health Department provided $1,500 toward printing costs for the event. Commissioners took another cue from the health departments student group, Students Working Against Tobacco, or SWAT, to pass a resolution urging Largo businesses not to sell candy-flavored tobacco, reportedly marketed to youth despite the fact that those younger than 18 cant buy it. We really want kids to stop being targeted by these companies, said Daniel Pate, a member of SWAT and student at Seminole High School. If we get enough information out there, the hope is that the people selling these products will realize that its probably not good to market these things to children to replace the smokers that have died from it beforehand. The city worked with SWAT coordinator Steven Sergent, from the health department, to write the resolution.The new high schoolAt the request of the commission, Largo High Principal Brad Finkbiner presented the latest rough designs for the renovations of the high school. Construction crews will begin tearing down the old buildings in June. Classes will be held in the old Largo Central Elementary School facility as well as portables for hopefully no more than two school years. The school is partnering with the city to relocate practices for the schools many sports and activities. For the next two years, we will be inconvenienced, but we think in the long run this will be a chance to showcase Largo, Finkbiner said. The administration wants to keep the design of the five pillars, which currently grace the front of the school. The pillars in the new school will be built with bricks from the old building as a way of honoring the schools 50-year history, Finkbiner said. Preliminary designs also included a Packer walk, a passageway featuring bricks purchased by alumni, which student athletes would have to walk past on the way to the fields. But along with remaining connected to its past, the new school will be as modern and efficient prototypical, even as possible, Finkbiner said. The principal said he has been overwhelmed by the intensity of Packer pride since becoming its principal two years ago. Were very proud of Largo High and very proud of this community. We want students to be proud of this school, he said.Largo to foreclose on propertyCommissioners also authorized the city manager to pursue foreclosure on a property at 3221 Hillsdale Ave., which has been racking up code enforce-New Wawa donates via sandwich contest By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO A group of 10 Largo firefighters and police officers underwent an unexpected type of training last week: hoagie-building boot camp. The team at the new Wawa at 8910 Ulmerton Road showed the citys finest and bravest how to build their signature sandwiches for a contest to celebrate the opening of the store and gas station Feb. 27. The resulting competition involved many handfuls of airborne lettuce and tomatoes, flung between the opposing teams as they battled to build 30 hoagies faster than the other. The team of five firefighters claimed the winning trophy, but Wawa donated $1,000 on behalf of both teams for their participation. The police officers named Suncoast Hospice as their charity of choice while the firefighters donated their winnings to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. In the ceremonies that preceded the contest, local officials welcomed the mid-Atlantic company, which began opening stores in Tampa Bay last year, to its first Largo location. Were really happy that Wawa has opened here, Largo commissioner Curtis Holmes said. We understand youre going to be opening a few more in our fair community, and I can hardly wait for that. The store is the second of 25 in Central Florida that the company plans to open this year. Its the 35th Florida store since the company began expanding into the state in 2012, a fact that Florida Rep. Larry Ahern attributed to the states business policies. From our end, we agree Florida is one of the most business-friendly states, said Todd Souders, director of Wawa store operations in Florida. We can open stores much quicker down here than we can at the mid-Atlantic. General manager for the new store, Roxanne Dowell, threw a ceremonial first pitch to mascot Phillie Phanatic, on loan from the Phillies spring training in Clearwater. On behalf of my team, we look forward to becoming a part of your community and serving all the residents for years to come, Dowell said. She will lead a team of almost 60 fulland part-time employees, new jobs in the area because of the store. For more information, call the store at 581-5042 or visit www.wawa.com. Photos by JULIANA A.

CorrectionThe story about Charlie Tulums Taco Shack, which ran in the Largo Leader Feb. 27, incorrectly attributed the sculptures on display in the yard of the establishment. The art is the work of metal sculptor Robert Buck, who leases the space to the taco shack and runs his business from 707 First Ave. SW. in Largo. ment fines as a blight to the surrounding community for seven years. The owner of the property has died since code enforcement personnel first visited the property in July 2007. The property was remanded to his estate but no surviving relative has stepped up to improve it or pay the citys liens against it. Charlene Lichatowich spoke on behalf of herself and several neighbors, describing deplorable conditions of the property, several species of pests that make it their home and the neighborhoods continuing efforts to mow and clean up the property, mitigating its negative effect on their property values. City Attorney Alan Zimmet warned commissioners and the residents that the foreclosure process, including a due diligence search for heirs, could take up to a year and cost an estimated $12,000. If the city is the highest bidder at the end of the process, staff plans to tear down the dilapidated structure and convert the property to affordable housing.Above, Largo firefighters, in yellow, and police officers, in blue, race to assemble 30 sandwiches.

Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. According to staff notes, the new facility, to be located at 14790 49th St. in Clearwater, will be an extension of the countys mobile health unit, which is a federally qualified health center that currently serves the homeless population at 12 locations countywide. More specifically, the overall objective of this project is to provide a new health care facility to serve as a patient-centered medical home that uniquely serves the needs of homeless individuals through in-house medical care and social support services, staff said. Plans call for the facility to provide medical and dental care, as well as house a 24-hour medical respite facility to provide convalescent care for clients recently released from a hospital. The project is divided into two phases. Phase 1 will include programming, schematic designs/design development and construction documents to allow for accurate subcontractor bidding and pricing that will be used to come up with a guaranteed lump sum price. Phase 2 is the building construction phase. The commission will approve the lump sum price prior to the start of Phase 2. The building will be constructed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, aka LEED, recommendations, but due to costs will not be formally certified. Staff said cost of Phase 1 should not exceed $265,942. An additional cost for permits and application fees is estimated at $112,783 for a total cost of $378,725. Total cost of the project Phase 1 and Phase 2 is $4.5 million to be funded by a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Capital Grant, approved May 1, 2012, for $5 million. Health and Community Services Director Gwendolyn Warren told commissioners to continue to qualify for the grant, a decision to move forward had to be made Feb. 25. Commissioners asked a number of questions about the cost of operations and maintenance for the new facility. Paul Sacco, director of Real Estate Management, said O&M costs had been estimated at $150,000 a year. He deferred questions about staffing to Warren. Warren said O&M costs would be paid for from the Health and Community Services budget. She said ongoing negotiations for staffing were continuing with a number of the countys partners that currently provide homeless services, as well as area hospitals. Were working on it, she said. The goal is to get people into treatment. Other sources of funding Warrens staff is looking at include homeless medical assistance programs and federal grants. She said the biggest anticipated shortfall is for equipment needs dental chairs, furniture for exam rooms and the like. Were trying to get grants and manage our resources, she said. She said cost of care would be paid for by Medicaid and private insurance billing and money from the general fund to pay for uninsured clients. Warren and her staff are working on a number of reports that are expected to be complete in May. My big concern is how to pay for this, Commission Chair Karen Seel said. Were still on a wing and a prayer. We had 10 medical homes, now we have five and this will be six, Warren said. I believe we can manage it. She said the grant includes a mandated time line. The county is currently behind about one year. Warren told commissioners if they didnt continue to move the project forward, the money could be lost. This gives me no choice, Seel said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said much of the information the commissioners wanted to know had been provided in past meetings; however, he admitted it might be helpful to have a report that put everything together in one package. Its not firmed up on where the resources are coming from, Seel said. Its not signed, sealed and delivered. It cant be signed, sealed and delivered until approval, Warren replied. She said agreements had been made with some partners, specifically the Juvenile Welfare Board and All Childrens Hospital. I cant promise anything. I really cant, Warren said. The plan is to not come back for resources. It is not my intention as long as Im director to ask for more resources. LaSala suggested scheduling a work session to discuss the details and work that has already been done to secure resources to staff the facility. Seel continued to express her concerns about the complications of realigning resources, saying it could be problematic. The devil is in the details, Warren agreed.

A second detention deputy has been disciplined for failing to immediately report the use of force and misrepresenting the facts of the incident, which occurred on Aug. 31, 2013 at the Pinellas County Jail. According to internal affairs investigators, detention deputy Joel De Los Reyes, 51, was assigned to supervise a juvenile pod at the Pinellas County Jail. Investigators say De Los Reyes became engaged in a verbal exchange with one of the inmates over whether the television would remain on or off; and regarding horseplay between inmates. De Los Reyes summoned assistance from detention deputy Adrian Nanu, 49, who entered the housing area through an emergency door, which remained opened and unsecured. At the same time, an inner cell door used to secure the juvenile inmates was left open. Nanu remained outside the emergency doors. De Los Reyes decided to remove the inmate, identified as Steven Valentin, 16, of New Port Richey from the cell. Deputies say he walked him over to the day room, pushed him onto a table. De Los Reyes continued to escort inmate Valentin out toward the emergency door, where Nanu was now entering. As they walked toward the door, De Los Reyes delivered a knee strike and an elbow strike to inmate Valentin. Nenu documented in his supplement initially that inmate Valentin was verbally abusive toward De Los Reyes. Nenu initially indicated that he witnessed the deputy deliver a guided custodial touch to the inmate, but later admitted that this was an inaccurate representation. De Los Reyes failed to report the use of force to his chain of command. He initially stated the inmate was not compliant and that his strike was not excessive. He later admitted to using excessive force. De los Reyes resigned during internal affairs investigation. The Sheriffs Office Robbery/Homicide Unit also investigated. De Los Reyes turned himself in to the jail at about 10 a.m. Feb. 24 on charges of battery. Nenu received a seven-day suspension for failing to report the incident to supervision immediately and for misrepresenting the facts. Video of the incident can be viewed at www.TBNweekly.com/content _articles/022414_pco-04.txt.Contract for causeway bait house approved By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners gave unanimous approval Feb. 25 to a contract for professional design build services with Caladesi Construction Company of Largo for the Belleair Causeway bait house. The bait house will be located adjacent to the Belleair Causeway Bridge at 3900 West Bay Drive in Belleair Bluffs. According to staff notes, the building will be constructed on an elevated deck system of about 1,760 square feet and will be designed to allow space for a private concessionaire to do business. The concessionaire, to be selected through a separate competitive process, will be required to install his or her own equipment and furnishings. The project is divided into two phases. Phase 1 includes programming schematic design/design development and construction documents to come up with a guaranteed lump sum price. Phase 2 is the building construction phase. Commissioners will approve the lump sum price prior to beginning Phase 2. Staff estimates that the project will take about one year to complete. Cost of Phase 1 is not to exceed $86,960. The total estimated project cost for Phase 1 and Phase 2 is $675,000. Funding is coming from the countys Capital Improvement Program via Penny for Pinellas sales tax. According to the project scope, preliminary site planning was done with Southwest Florida Water Management District during the construction of the Belleair Causeway Bridge, which began in 2006. Construction of the bridge was completed in 2010. When the bridge was constructed the boat ramp park and its bait house was closed. A new park opening it January 2010 did not include a new bait house. County staff recommended delaying the bait house and addition of permanent restrooms due to budget cuts to the capital improvement budget. Officials talked about the possibility of allowing a concessionaire to open a mobile bait house until permanent facilities could be built. However, negotiations for a temporary mobile concessionaire did not work out. The Board of Adjustments for the city of Belleair Bluffs rejected a variance in January 2011 from a potential concessionaire because plans did not meet code requirements. County commissioners agreed to move the restrooms and bait house up in the schedule of CIP projects in June of 2012. Permanent restroom facilities finally opened in May 2013. The bait house will conclude the work originally scheduled to occur with construction of the bridge. Construction of the new bait house will include access, walkways, trash storage, equipment pads, landscaping, screening and all other site features as required. The facility will include space for lease to a concessionaire, who would install and operate his or her own equipment and furnishings to supply bait, food and drink to the public. One restroom and a back deck with seating for 19 are included in the design.

Jack Latvala of Clearwater recently received the 2014 Moffitt Momentum Award during Moffitts annual Business of Biotech Conference.

The facility will create hundreds of jobs and will give Moffitt expanded capacity to treat many more cancer patients. I am honored to receive this very prestigious award because it symbolizes a partnership that I have always enjoyed with the Moffitt family over the years, said Latvala, Moffitt is a top-notch institution that has always gone above and beyond to help members of my community and to touch the lives of cancer patients from all over this state, and I am proud of the work we have collaborated on over the years.McCabe remains on Violent Crime and Drug Control CouncilTALLAHASSEE Bernie McCabe of Largo was one of three reappointed by Gov.

MARNIE JACOBOWITZPINELLAS PARK Spc. Robert R. Ortiz Jr., a supply specialist with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, Army Reserve Medical Command, recently competed in ARMEDCOMs prestigious Best Warrior Competition. The event took place Feb. 24-27, 2014. Ortiz, 20, a Pinellas Park soldier, started his intense training for this competition last year when he was selected as alternate. I chose to compete in the Best Warrior Competition to better myself as a soldier, develop confidence and to improve my soldering skills, said Ortiz. He is one of only 13 soldiers of approximately 9,500-strong ARMEDCOM Warriors to be selected to compete for this honor. Upon completion of BWC, competitors are afforded the opportunity to attend Fort Bragg Air Assault School. Ortiz, a native of Lockport, Ill., currently resides in Safety Harbor. He is looking forward to taking advantage of this opportunity. The Best Warrior Competition was developed by retired Sergeant Major of the Army Jack Tilley in 2002, testing soldiers physical endurance, military knowledge, and mental perseverance. The competition is an opportunity for Warriors to highlight their military skills in a competitive environment. The grueling four-day event competition taxes each soldier mentally and physically. It includes a timed written exam, physical fitness test, and a number of mentally and physically challenging exercises including day land navigation, urban orienteering courses, road march, weapons qualification on rifles and pistols, hand-to-hand combative tournament, tactical combat casualty care, and mystery events. Ortiz began his intense training in preparation for the higher command level competition intended to select the noncommissioned officer and junior enlisted Soldier of the Year for ARMEDCOM. The winner advances to train and prepare through U.S. Army Reserve Command, and upon winning will go on to represent the Army Reserve Command to the Army wide Best Warrior Competition to be held later in the year. The Army Reserve Medical Command has been represented at the top Army event in 2009 by Staff Sgt.

Pinellas County School Board changes meeting timesPinellas School Board members have approved provisions that will change regular School Board meeting start times. Board members voted Feb. 26 to change the order of general public comments. Moving comments after regular meetings, instead of before, will return proceedings to how they were before the schedule was amended in September 2011, school officials said. The goal of the change is to move public comments on agenda items closer to the proceedings for agenda items, allowing for more effective comments, efficient use of time, and a more positive experience for those attending School Board meetings. Morning meetings will generally begin at 10 a.m. and evening meetings will begin at 5 p.m., a half hour earlier than before.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, March 6, 2014Has any Supreme Authority written a book listing the proper and improper ways for us to talk with one another? If so, Ive missed it. Of course, many books exist that teach us how to become a better conversationalist. Im not referring to that skill. What concerns me is the absence of any rulebook that defines when, in a civilized conversation, a person should speak and when to shut the hell up. Have you noticed that today there are very few listeners? These are people who, perhaps in childhood or in a finishing school, were taught to remain silent while the other guy was speaking. If and when silence finally occurred, then it was your turn. No more, or rarely, does conversation work that way. Today, closely observe talkers you know, especially if theyre appearing on a TV or radio program. Youll find few polite listeners. If and when you do identify such persons, theyll be the ones in the corner who everyone ignores. In modern conversation, youd better learn to be an interrupter, and a forceful one. If youre not prepared to cut off the current speakers flow in mid-thought, you might as well just leave. Youre a nobody, a cipher, an odd duck who just sat there. Occasionally I encounter a monologuist (I hope thats a real word). He or she is someone who began chattering at birth and has never really stopped except during sleep or surgery. They dont know how, or why they should listen to another persons thoughts. In such cases, I sometimes carry a kitchen timer or just look at my watch. I make a bet with myself about how long Chatty Kathy or Voluble Vince will blabber on before they run out of air. I sit there confounded that so many words can issue in an unbroken stream from one persons alleged brain. Some folks see nothing wrong with being interrupted in mid-sentence. Thats how real people talk with each other, Driver. Conversation isnt a chess game or a college debate. Its give and take. Maybe so. But most people would rather give than take. Some wit once said, The opposite of talking isnt listening its waiting. I must confess my views on conversation are shaped by how quickly I bore people when its my turn to talk. Im adept at quips, but my narratives plod. I could be giving an eyewitness account of a terrorist attack on the White House, and my listeners would quickly nod off or beg, Bob, please shut up. People interrupt me just to shut me up. Its on the typical TV panel discussion that you see the worst manners and the most interruptions. Example: Five days a week, Whoopi Goldberg and several other celebrity women sit down for a chatterfest known as The View. For the next half-hour or so they proceed to babble on about all sorts of topics, none of which become clear to the viewing audience because none of the panelists is permitted to express a complete thought without being cut off in mid-sentence. This is conversation? Or is it the way show-biz people (male and female) are supposed to talk? A similar gabbing contest can be seen on Fox News each afternoon, on a program called The Five. Several men and women sit around a table to exchange opinions on current events. But what we see and hear is mostly rapid-fire wisecracks and punchlines, and very little solid information on whats happening in the real world. The panelists seem to be on a quota system, with the prize going to whoever can score the most interruptions. I find relief by watching any of several instructive interview programs, such as those hosted by Bill Moyers, Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley. Although these guys will occasionally break in with a noteworthy point, they usually grant their guests the dignity of letting them speak freely. A major victory for civilized conversational restraint was scored recently when CNN fired its prissy, tiresome and often ill-mannered commentator Piers Morgan. Although his lengthy news background fully qualified him to hold his job, Morgans obstreperous interviewing style made me want to flip my TV switch to the Weather Channel or a Jerry Seinfeld re-run. As I write this, rumors say that veteran interviewer Larry King would like to replace Morgan. Millions would welcome that move, Id guess. King was sometimes mocked for his many marriages and pedestrian intellect, but he usually asked interesting common-man questions. Best of all, he allowed his guests to respond. He conducted a genuine talk show, not a fencing match.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net.President Barack Obama called Afghan President Hamid Karzais bluff Tuesday.Obama let it be known that because Karzai is unlikely to sign a bilateral security agreement essential to keeping some U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014 he had asked the Pentagon to work on a plan to withdraw all troops before 2015. Obama has good reason to want to cut Karzai off at the knees. Karzai wont sign the security agreement despite unanimous support from the Loya Jirga, a council of elders with political say in Afghanistan. He released 65 Taliban from the Bagram prison despite U.S. protests that the detainees had been involved in attacks that wounded coalition and Afghan forces. The Afghan people have been amazing allies, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon told the National Press Club on Monday. President Karzai has not. Even before the Karzai phone call, McKeon was concerned that Obama might go soft on the mission. In 2008, Obama was something of a hawk on the region. He appalled Hillary Clinton when he said that he would pursue actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets in Pakistan whether President Pervez Musharraf liked it or not. He argued that unlike Iraq, Afghanistan was a war of necessity and the right battlefield. At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, he pledged, I will end this war in Iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Toward that end, Obama ordered a surge of 30,000 troops in 2009. Unfortunately, he signaled a lack of resolve when he also announced that he would start to withdraw surge troops in mid-2011. As he wrote in his memoirs, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates concluded that the president doesnt trust his commander, cant stand Karzai, doesnt believe in his own strategy and doesnt consider the war to be his. For him, its all about getting out. McKeon is baffled as to why Obama doesnt talk up the good news coming out of Afghanistan. As the April presidential election looms, major candidates support the security agreement. Afghan national security forces have come a long way, although they still need U.S. support. But with Operation Enduring Freedoms death toll exceeding 2,300, U.S. support is weak. In November 2001, less than 1 in 10 Americans saw the war as a mistake. Now, Gallup reported this month, Americans are as likely to say U.S. military involvement there was a mistake as to say it was not. Tom Umberg, a former Democratic state assemblyman in California and an Afghanistan War veteran, disagrees. We still have a clear national interest there, he told me. At this very moment, there are children attending schools where they are planning to kill Americans and U.S. allies. They are our sworn enemies. The question Americans should ask themselves, he added, is whether they want Afghanistan to return as the petri dish for terrorism that it once was. Obama has every right to demand a signed agreement as a condition for continued but limited U.S. military support. But voters should be aware that if Washington were to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan, the war might be over, but the threat would not.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. Politics is a dirty word. Citizen approval for the U.S. Congress has dipped to just 9 percent, down from 14 percent scarcely five months ago. It is the lowest in the history of the Gallup Poll. President Obama, once believed by some to be the nations savior, now has an approval rating of just 41 percent. That figure is expected to slide further as Obama continues to stumble aimlessly through the nations maze of economic, social and other challenges. The state level numbers arent better. Gov. Rick Scott, who reportedly will be spending $100 million of his own money to support his re-election campaign, shows an approval rating of around 30 percent, depending on the poll. He is pitted this November against former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned Independent turned Democrat who has a record of flip-flopping or simply dodging issues. The Florida Legislature should be hiding their collective heads in shame for their own measly average approval rating. Like their federal counterparts, home-grown lawmakers have a reputation for allegedly being bartered by big business and special interest groups. Do Florida lawmakers accept money for their favors? All you need to do is visit the Florida state campaign database at election.dos.state.fl.us/campaignfinance/contrib.asp to see what state representatives are accepting in exchange for their considerations. I will not pinpoint any particular policymaker, but what you will find by entering a name in that database is bound to shock you. The total contributions amounted to staggering sums for the 2012 general election. No doubt money is being exchanged for the 2014 contests. There are reasons why contributors to Pinellas County lawmakers come from places like Fort Myers, Ocala and Jacksonville, along with donors from New Orleans, Indiana, New York, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania. Donors embody law firms, utilities, insurance companies, and the health care, agricultural, pharmaceutical, finance, political organizations and many other special interest groups and lobbyists. Included in the list is American Traffic Solutions Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz. ... the very same folks who bring us all those nifty red light cameras that have sprung up in various municipalities under the guise of traffic safety. And if you dont believe that red light cameras are all about filling municipal coffers, visit www.atsol.com/. Right on the front page of the ATS website it clearly states, Learn more about the economic benefit red-light safety cameras can bring to your community. Note the words economic benefit. Floridas red light camera law, officially known as the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, faces legislative challenges this spring. Although previous attempts to eliminate or harness the cameras have failed, some state lawmakers are again attempting to repeal the law that governs them. During one five-year period (2006-2011) ATS handed out more than $240,000 to candidates for state office and another $1.3 million to lobby state and municipal governments, much of that in the Sunshine State. Florida legislators later killed red-light camera proposals. It should be interesting to see what happens this year. What it all boils down to is that we need new blood in municipal, county, state and federal offices. The same ole, same ole politicians, some of whom bounce from one public office to another over their lifetime, should be replaced by individuals with integrity, openness and unsullied initiatives for Floridas future. The political machine of this state and country needs to stop being oiled by special interests with deep pockets ... so it grinds to a halt and becomes a part of history.Tom Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey dautrey@TBNweekly.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli accounting@TBNweekly.com Advertising Director: Jay Rey jrey@TBNweekly.com Classied Advertising Manager: Wendy Edwards wedwards@TBNweekly.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown production@TBNweekly.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter webmaster@TBNweekly.com Beach Beacon: Bob McClure bmcclure@TBNweekly.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl alundahl@TBNweekly.com Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Largo Leader: Juliana A.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSTime to ban kite boarding and kite surfing?Editor: Near sunset Feb. 9 at Pass-A-Grille beach a cool, cloudy day was being enjoyed by kite boarders and beachcombers alike Suddenly, with the silent swiftness of the wind, a beach-walking woman was struck from behind by an errant kite boarders rig. Thrown 10 yards garroted by kite wires she was slammed hard to the ground, sustaining multiple cuts, abrasions, contusions, fractures to the right hand and serious shoulder damage. As she lay bleeding, surrounded by shocked bystanders, the kite boarder fled the scene. This mans behavior is unacceptable and may call for kite boarder legislation and enforcement. His acts of maliciousness or incompetence were followed by cowardice or callousness. That cannot be tolerated. Everyone should be able to safely walk the beaches. The excitement and freedom of the kite boarder shouldnt have to be impeded. However, personal freedom and personal responsibility go hand-in-glove. If kite boarders will not be responsible, then they must be regulated. This regulation could include: specific training and certifications, carrying liability insurance, restriction to specific areas or perhaps regulation means banning kite boarders permanently from populated areas. Good. Charles D. Updegrove Falls Church, Va.The cost of Obamacare: Is it too much?Editor: On Dec. 11 a reader wrote a letter to the Tampa Bay Times saying that he was pleased that through the new Affordable Care Act his 26year-old daughter was able to get medical insurance that also included some dental coverage. He lamented that at over $4,000 a year ($340 a month) it was quite expensive. She doesnt qualify for any subsidy because her earnings of $30,000 put her over the threshold. Is the cost too much? Lets pretend the readers daughter is in Ontario, Canada, and earning the same $30,000 where the health care is free. Or is it free? First, she would have to pay more in federal income tax. Her current rate of 11.08 percent would jump to 15 percent. Since Florida doesnt have a state income tax and Ontario does, she would have to deduct another 5.05 percent for the Ontario provincial income tax. Whenever she buys something from a retail store, instead of Floridas low 6 or 7 percent retail sales tax she would be paying 13 percent. Over the course of a year, with everyday purchases, that adds up. If she bought a $30,000 automobile, tack on an extra $2,100 over and above what shed be paying in Florida. Gas for her car would be about $2 more or $5.20 a gallon (converted from liters) and heaven forbid if she likes a little vodka in her orange juice. A 1.75 liter of Smirnoff Vodka can be bought in Florida for $18. The same bottle bought in Ontario is $54. Plus she would be paying sales tax on almost everything from taxicabs to dry cleaning, even lawyers fees. There is no dental or prescription coverage provided by the Ontario plan. She would be purchasing this insurance from an outside source such as Blue Cross, which includes co-pays and would add another $1,008. ($84 a month) to her health care costs. If one were to break down the taxes that a Canadian pays (of any wage and age bracket up to 65) to get his or her free health care, plus having to pay for prescriptions and dental work out of his or her own pocket, it would work out to more than what an American is going to be paying for Obamacare. This is offset by the fact that health coverage in Canada doesnt include deductibles or co-pays. The results are? The American hospitals, especially the for-profit ones, offer the best in the world in the way of technology, equipment, treatment and low wait time, but up till now, it was only for those who had insurance coverage or who could afford it. With the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) most will now qualify for those same benefits. In this writers opinion, Obamacare is certainly a good deal for some 37 plus million Americans. Also, it will reduce the numbers of Americans who go bankrupt for the nonpayment of medical bills. The downside? The insurance companies who administer these programs bring in the premiums and then pay out the medical bills; whats left over, as their profit is 12 billion dollars. Not chump change at all. Imagine if there was a not-for-profit system similar to what the Canadians have and that same 12 billion got poured back into the medical system. It would certainly help.

Patrick, who is married and has six children, also works in the churchs educational system. 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 Latterday Saints, this position is unpaid and typically lasts around five years. Two counselors assist each bishop. Patrick is supported by first counselor Richard Flora and second counselor Victor Pavone. Together these 3 men form a bishopric, which oversees the spiritual and social needs of its 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 its Sunday worship. Services start at 10 a.m. each Sunday. The address for the church building is 9001 106th Ave., Largo.Good Samaritan ChurchPINELLAS PARK Strategies for Independence will be presented Saturday, March 8, 10 a.m., at Good Samaritan Church, 6085 Park Blvd. Liz Barlowe, certified care manager and health advocate, will facilitate the forum.

All are welcome to this free presentation. They will have books and pamphlets written by Steven available. Steven grew up in Pakistan into a Islamic reformist sect. He left home at age 18 to become a Sunni Muslim and studied the principles of Islam, even memorizing the entire Quran. However, when he began to question the tenets of his faith while in his Islamic studies he faced persecution from those around him, and even his family. He miraculously escaped several murderous plots and was able to leave the country. He and his wife now live in Florida. Steven will give his testimony of why he chooses to follow Jesus and not Islam.

How many times do I need to see something to learn that it is real, I should believe it and even depend on it? For example, in our hyper-capitalized society, how much proof do I need to concede that the initial quoted price is not real? The storefront advertises two pair of glasses for $100. But did I want lenses with those new frames? The utilities or cable company rep reassures me that the quoted monthly fee is the true fee. But to get the service, I also will need to pay the swollen list of additional fees. When am I going to learn that there is usually more to it? I have similar questions about dolphin intelligence and their friendliness to man. If a dolphin does the same thing to our research boat on two consecutive surveys, is there more to it than habit? Is the second-timearound behavior the dolphin way to say, I remember what we did before. That was fun! Lets do it again? That certainly could be true of humans. So I have to keep in mind that that explanation could be attributing human traits to an animal unfairly, the offense of anthropomorphism. The goal of the science of animal behavior (ethology) is seeing animals clearly for what they are. That can be difficult. For example, when a dolphin runs through a series of previous behaviors as if on fast-forward, is it ever acknowledging the previous encounter? It was one of those wonderful winter days that reassures us that spring is close. It was clear, calm, beautifully blue, and like San Diego, not warm but not cold. We encountered several pairs of dolphins in short order. En route with the second pair, we spied a third pair going in the other direction. Like cars in opposing lanes on the interstate, the two pairs did not stop and visit. Data done on the second pair, we headed over to the third pair. The smaller of the two, 4-year-old Cutlass, headed over to us as well. He was in a distractible mood. Such dolphins are not engrossed in some on-going activity and are easily attracted to anything going on around them, like nearby boats. Cutlass came over and exhibited a remarkable and engaging set of behaviors, the kind humans love. He got more and more excited; or rather his behaviors become more animated. First, he came up behind the boat and tossed something into the air a couple of times. Distractible dolphins toss all kinds of things (seedpods, small eels, fish, small rays, shells, etc.). However, I did not see any object and the photos revealed only water. Usually, only baby dolphins toss water. Cutlass is long past babyhood. Then he came to the front of the boat and wove under the bow. When we failed to accelerate so he could surf, he returned to the back of the boat and started rolling around. Suddenly he startled and his flukes flipped into the air for a second. Something had goosed him pretty hard. He shot forward underwater and then leapt free of it in a graceful U-turn called a bow. He returned to rolling around at the back of the boat but startled again. Then, in short order, he shot into another graceful bow. But this time it was with his mother, Courtney snapping at his belly. When Cutlass first came over, his mom Courtney had continued swimming toward Johns Pass and the Gulf, their ultimate destination. But she came back and registered her objection to his dawdling by goosing him. That was evidently insufficient to distract him from his tomfoolery at the boat. So she goosed him a second time and finally threatened to T-bone him. Didnt he know that he was supposed to be traveling rhythmically at her side? They had places to go! Cutlass did two more graceful bows (defiantly?), then joined his mother and traveled rhythmically at her side out into the Gulf. Cutlass engaging behavior was not only notable for its dolphin mystique of being friendly toward people. It was also notable as a skillful reference to previous behavior, intentional or not. This was February; we had not seen this pair since October (four months before). I remember that October day well because it was the first time Cutlass engaged our boat clearly and extensively as a mature calf ready to wean instead of a dear but indiscriminate calf (who, like a puppy, loves everybody). His behavior that October day was wonderful to watch. It included object tossing, inspecting the boat, aerial behaviors and gentle play with other youngsters. Consequently, on this fantastic February day, social play was the only missing behavior. I have to wonder if Cutlass remembers that October day too and went so far as to act out his recollections by repeating the highlights of that day. The man who ruptured the wall between humans and other animals, Charles Darwin, thought that the ability to recognize an individual after a considerable passage of time showed the rudiments of a mind. I see way more than basic intelligence in the friendliness of our local bottlenose dolphins, albeit with due caution. However, there is definitely just a bare bones connection between my opening reference to the deceitful prices of our hyper-capitalized society and dolphin psychology: When am I going to learn?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Send her an email at annstats54@gmail.com or visit her website www.goodnaturedstatis tics.com. NOAA advises anyone who sees a stranded dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico to call 877-942-5343 or 877-433-8299.March is when we usually start to see more redfish start to show up. This year, despite all the cold weather, the actions seem to be on track. Schools of fish have been spotted from Tierra Verde all the way north to Tarpon Springs. The best bite lately has been the afternoon high tides. By 2 to 3 p.m., the water has warmed up a good 5 degrees since sunrise. Typically the schools are more easily targeted when the water is high. This seems to give the fish a sense of comfort, and even if they are spooked, theyll often come right back to where they were hanging out. Locating the schools is often more work than actually catching the fish. A productive pattern lately has been to target flats that have plenty of small oyster bars along the mangroves. These oyster bars usually occur on the points of the shoreline and as the current moves in or out, the redfish as well as the mullet will stage up on either side of the point. You can eliminate large areas of fishless water by strictly targeting the points. Trout fishing remains steady and should only get better as the water begins to warm up. Fishing soft-plastic jigs has allowed us to cover more water in a shorter amount of time versus live shrimp. Drifting along flats drop-offs at low tide has yielded trout up to 22 inches. The key to getting bit is working the jig very slowly. Were usually targeting the trout first thing in the morning when the water temperature has been running in the low 60s, still a little chilly even for trout. Best color has been a red and gold 4-inch jerk-bait by D.O.A. This weekends weather was decent enough to venture offshore a few miles in search of some light tackle action with some tasty white grunts and hogfish. Using live shrimp fished on a 0ne and a half-ounce knocker rig we targeted ledges in 40 to 50 feet of water. Fishing was good, although the spot-tail pinfish are thick in these depths, requiring quite a few shrimp to withstand the barrage of activity.

The show runs through March 16. Set in 1920s New York City, the story follows Millie Dillmount, fresh off the train from Kansas. Not 10 minutes after her arrival, Millie gets mugged losing her scarf, hat, shoe and her purse. Seeking help, she chances upon Jimmy Smith, who tells her to go back to Kansas. Millie insists upon staying, so Jimmy recommends the Hotel Priscilla, a rooming house for actresses.

Once again, Eight OClock Theatre hooks its audience right out of the gate, delivering a brisk and bouncy opening number showcasing the ensembles textbook harmonies and dazzling choreography.

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.

Romance blossoms between Nikki and this alluring doppelgnger, but she cant bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. So she hides her photos and prevents him from meeting friends and family. Still, she cant resist taking him to all the old haunts. It isnt a question of if the truth will come out, but when.

She brings to the role more than a flawless voice: She endears Millie to the audience, painting her as stubborn but lovable. Dobbert was recently seen in the West Coast Players production of The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!). Before that, she appeared in Eight OClock Theatres production of Forbidden Broadway, for which she won a STAR Award for Favorite Actress in a Musical. Nick Abounader plays Jimmy Smith. To Millie, Jimmy is a bit of a mystery: brash and insulting one moment, charming the next. Abounader successfully conveys Smiths rough edges in such a way that the audience never doubts his integrity. Rachel Crissman gives a solid performance as Miss Dorothy, Millies newfound friend. Crissman makes her debut at EOT with this role, and its a safe bet that shell be appearing in future productions. As Muzzy van Hossmere, Amber Phillips delivers some superlative numbers, including Only in New York and Long As Im Here with You. For comedy relief, the show has the dastardly Mrs. Meers and her two disinclined lackeys, Ching Ho and Bun Foo. Meers, played by Ronnie Farley, is an accomplice in a white slavery ring, notorious for abducting orphans and shipping them off to China. Farley is at her best when she sings They Dont Know. Joe Southall and Michael Shurtz play the Chinese brothers Ching Ho and Bun Foo, respectively. The two deliver their lines in Chinese while subtitles are displayed on a screen above the stage. Their sheer dedication to the roles is praiseworthy. Together, these three cast members instill the show with a delightful degree of campiness. Thoroughly Modern Millie features many more standout performances, including Karen Johnston as Miss Flannery and Stephen Fee as Trevor Graydon. What makes the show enjoyable is the chemistry evident amongst the entire ensemble. Director Linda Woodruff Weir and co-director/stage manager James Grenelle elicit a kind of cohesion from the cast that helps what is essentially a comic pastiche transcend its frivolousness. Its easy to fault Thoroughly Modern Millie for being derivative. It takes a special cast and crew to make the show a success. EOTs production thrives thanks to an excellent cast, imaginative direction, glittery costumes and stunning sets, and outstanding musical direction. Embrace the shows silliness and enjoy its intoxicating energy.

PETERSBURG Casting has been announced for freeFall Theatres upcoming production of the world premiere staging of Mikhel Rauds comedy American Monkey, which will open March 15 and run through March 30, at 6099 Central Ave. Directed by freeFall artistic director Eric Davis, the cast will star Patrick Ryan Sullivan, Chris Jackson, Stefanie Clouse and John Lombardi. This all-new play is a look at what it takes to become a celebrity in the United States in 2014. This dark comedy is set at the auditions for reality televisions most popular talent contest, American Superstar. After a few singers pass through to the next level (there will be a signup before each performance for audience members wanting to sing in front of the fictional judges) a young man (Jackson) enters the studio and decides to turn the tables on the judges (Sullivan, Clouse and Lombardi) and put them and the entertainment industry on trial in his own warped version of Romes Colosseum. The audience will get to choose (by text) which of the judges tragically get to go on to the next round. American Monkey questions the very idea of contemporary entertainment and fame in a brash and uncompromising way that calls to mind the style of director and writer Quentin Tarantino. This show contains adult language and situations and is intended for mature audiences only. Tickets can be purchased at www.freefalltheatre.com or by calling the freeFall Theatre box office at 498-5205.

He has four platinum albums, five gold albums, 14 No. 1 singles and 23 Top 10 singles to his name. His trademarked voice has shaped the music of todays country music newcomers and the new country music generation. His career in music began shortly after he dropped out of high school. He began playing clubs in Southeast Texas with his father. At 17, he made his first pilgrimage to Nashville to begin recording. While nurturing a growing fanbase in Texas, he released a string of singles that eventually appeared on the 1988 album Doing My Country Thing. In 1990, Chesnutt signed with MCA Records and released his first major-label album Too Cold at Home. The LP produced five Top 10 country hits, including the title track as well as the No. 1 hit Brother Jukebox, Blame It on Texas, Your Love Is a Miracle and Broken Promise Land. According to the biography on his website, Chesnutts fans helped his records to climb the charts one after the other, making him one of Billboards Ten Most-Played Radio Artists of the s. Outlaw, released in 2010, is Chesnutts most recent studio album the 14th of his career. Of all the recorded highlights Chesnutt has enjoyed, they take a back seat to his first love. Chesnutt lives to perform on stage. I just make records because I want people to come see my show, he says on his website. Recording music for folks to just listen to music is great, but Ive got to be out there on stage making it. Word has it that fans who have seen him perform agree.

TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners unanimously passed three measures promoting less tobacco use within the city March 4. Two of the measures were resolutions, but commissioners also supported a new ordinance banning smoking in park structures such as playgrounds, shelters, gazebos, fitness areas and tennis courts. The proposed ordinance had two goals, explained Parks Superintendent Greg Brown. First, the city already had signs on its playgrounds designating them as no smoking zones. We do kindly ask people to step outside but we have nothing to back that up, Brown said. Second, the new rule would give law enforcement another tool to deal with teenagers hanging out in Largo Central Park and causing issues for regular park patrons, Brown added. It sort of takes the ability for people to congregate and smoke in a park structure away, he said. Commissioner Jamie Robinson said he supported the measure to fine violaters but didnt think it went far enough. If the kids can stand all around the gazebo, it doesnt matter if theyre in it or outside of it. Its the same group of kids in the same spot. I really do understand where youre coming from in trying to break that cycle up, but if were going to do it, just do the whole park, he said. Brown explained that specifying no smoking in park structures made the ordinance logistically easier to enforce. The ordinance allows the city to temporarily declare certain areas smoke-free, allowing them to put up signs around lines of children for Largo Central Parks train weekend or Halloween Spooktacular. Largo police are in favor of the ordinance, which has to be approved in a final public hearing March 18. As one of the first actions in the meeting March 4, the city proclaimed itsHomeless man charged with murder By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo police arrested William Sargent Coffin III Feb. 25 and charged him with first-degree murder in the death of 50-year-old Patricia Canon King. Described as a permanent transient, Coffin met King not long before police found her body at 3:11 a.m. Feb. 6, in her home at 1008 10th Ave. NW., said Largo Police Department spokesman Lt. Paul Amodeo. The day before, she had invited Coffin over after they struck up a conversation near her home. While he was there, he stole some jewelry he later tried to sell, Amodeo said. He later returned to her home and had sex with King. It appeared to be consensual. We dont have anything to believe that it wasnt, Amodeo said. But it was during the second visit that Coffin stabbed King in the neck multiple times, police reported. Coffin was a known subject in the investigation even when police began looking into the Kings death earlier this month, Amodeo said. However, it was DNA evidence found at the scene of the crime and processed by Pinellas County Forensic Laboratories that linked the homicide back to him. Once the evidence was identified, detectives were able to quickly find Coffin and match the evidence to him enough to file charges. The department has not released what kind of DNA evidence the forensics team found.All aboard the art busThis weeks Art Hop to benefit Largo library foundation By BRIAN GOFFLARGO The annual Art Hop and Taste Fest on Saturday, March 8 brings together Largos top artists and performers with some great food and entertainment. Organizers are confident that the event, one of Largos premiere social events of the year, will raise the money needed to help with the citys library. Scott Thompson, CEO of the Greater Largo Library Foundation and the chief organizer of the event, explained that the money raised goes straight to the library. We fund programs at the library that the city budget does not cover, he said. We support the English Second Language learning center, we buy mobile carts so people can get around, and we financed the wireless communication system so the employees can communicate without having to go to a phone. Heres how the Art Hop works. Residents pay $35 in advance or $40 at the library door on Saturday at 6 p.m. Then everyone gets on a bus tour to four different locations in the city: McGill Plumbing, Side Door Antiques, Largo Feed Sore and the Pinecrest Retirement Village. At each stop, a different artists work will be on display for those on William Sargent Coffin III Photo courtesy of SCOTT THOMPSONArtist JoAnn Flagg displays her work at last years Art Hop at Largo Public Library. This years event is March 8.Order extends water restrictions By SUZETTE PORTERAs of March 1, Pinellas County residents can water their lawns and landscape plants twice a week before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. The governing board for the Southwest Florida Water Management District, referred to as Swiftmud, extended the Phase II Water Shortage order in the Tampa Bay area on Feb. 25; however, the new order allows up to two watering days per week. We are asking residents to continue to be prudent with their water use, especially outdoor irrigation, at this time. Its important to be mindful of our water supply, said District Chairman Carlos Beruff. The board enacted Phase II Water Shortage restrictions Dec. 17 due to reduced river levels and increasing water supply concerns. Restrictions for lawn watering were expected to continue throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The extended order follows a seasonal feature of Phase II, which recognizes that reasonable lawn irrigation needs may be higher in spring and summer, when days are longer and temperatures are hotter than the winter months, Swiftmud officials said in a press release. Phase II restrictions will continue through at least July 31, depending on the amount of rainfall the area receives. Under Phase II, local enforcement requirements continue to be in effect and homeowners associations still may not enforce any deed restrictions in a manner, which could cause an See ART HOP, page 4A See WATER, page 4A See MURDER, page 4A See SMOKING, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . . .10A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Military . . . . . . . . . . .11A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .15A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .16A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising VIEWPOINTSTom MichalskiNew blood needed in political offices.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerIndependence and Aging in PlaceFor many of us boomers, we reflect often on a timeline of goals we wish to achieve and assess what truly nourishes our happiness in looking ahead. Spending time with family, maintaining good health, enjoying a stable work environment, and enjoying our special hobbies are likely at the top of the list. Lets add enjoying our independence to this. We enjoy the freedom to control what we do and where we go which is a blessing, one we take for granted. In our Comfort Keepers in home care business we witness daily the dilemma our senior clients face when they lose what they have owned for so many years, their independence. At one time, they too were in the work force sharing their talents in a career, actively raising families, and enjoyed physical hobbies. Imagine when the day arrives our senior loved ones face physical and/or mental losses. Control is so important to any adult, therefore, the loss of it can create feelings of uselessness, sadness, frustration and even guilt as they do not wish to be a burden to their loved ones. There is no rule book as to how to help your aging parent cope with the loss of independence. Be patient and help them understand this is not a personal failure and reassure them you will do everything you can to keep them engaged with family and friends. The toughest moment is when they can no longer drive. It is a normal function for most us to jump in our car day in and day out. Try to imagine the sense of loss your loved one is feeling by giving up this integral part of their independence. Try to not dismiss their feelings and be there to help with the transition. You can offer your support, encouragement and suggest options of transportation along with offering rides whenever possible. Safety in the home is crucial for your loved one to remain there. A clear path to each room is the best practice. Be sure there are not too many throw rugs or cords to trip on and if there are, secure them. Grab bars in the bathrooms by the shower and the stool are great safety tools. A large percentage of our potential calls are driven from mom or dad need bathing assistance and meal prep. The ability to bathe and cook are two areas that can directly extend the months or years people are able to age in place. Comfort Keepers provides guidance on how to make the home safer as the natural changes of aging come along. We plan physical activities appropriate to each clients health condition from walks to helping around the house.

4A Largo Leader, March 6, 2014increase in water use. Micro-irrigation and hand watering of non-lawn areas can be done any day, if needed. Watering by any source must be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Swiftmud encourages residents to practice Florida-friendly landscaping principles and to water lawns only when needed. The simplest way to determine if your yard needs water is if your grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of your yard, appear blue-gray, or do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it, according to the press release. The Tampa Bay area relies on the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir during the dry season; however, the reservoir is currently being repaired and is out of service.Lawn watering schedule and timesLawn watering days and times for the twice-per-week schedule are as follows unless a municipality has a different schedule or stricter hours in effect. Call the phone number on your water bill if you have questions. Watering can only be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday Locations without a discernable address, such as rights-of-way and other common areas inside a subdivision, may water on Tuesday and/or FridayNew lawns and plantsNew lawns and plants have a 60-day establishment period. On days one to 30, they may be watered any day of the week. During days 31 to 60, they may be watered approximately every other day. Even-numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Oddnumbered addresses may be watered on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

Coffin is a known homeless man in the Seminole area, Amodeo said. Largo police last arrested him for burglary with battery on Dec. 4, 2012. During that incident, Coffin reportedly entered an apartment uninvited and grabbed a woman by her neck, taking her down. If you call 911 or scream for your daughter, Ill kill you, he said, according to Largos report at the time. The victim in that incident did scream and her daughter, a young adult, came in and was able to push Coffin off her mother, Amodeo said. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office arrested Coffin in July of that year on behalf of Hernando County, where he was wanted for aggravated assault, according to Pinellas County jail records. Sheriffs deputies arrested him again in November 2012 for petit theft. Largo police are still investigating the Feb. 20 shooting of Kristen Gannon, 41, who was shot in the leg by a man at the Fountains of Largo apartments. Investigators are looking for the suspect in that incident. Coffin was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where he is being held without bond.

By 8 p.m., the tour will conclude back at the library where 25 other artists and performers will be gathered. Georgia artist Jace McTier is the featured artist of the event. Also featured will be Rising Star artist Lisa Bagley, an art teacher from Largo High. Jazz singer Lisa Casalino of Tampa will provide the entertainment for the evening. This years event will include art displays from the students from Largo High, Largo Middle School and Largo Elementary. In addition, there is food sampling and, according to Thompson, a rather large silent auction. We have over 100 items for bid in the auction, he said. There are sulllllllch things as massage packages, golf packages and boat cruises. McGill Plumbing general manager Shane Wood said he is only too happy to participate in the Art Hop. It is important to get involved in the community, he said. The Largo community has been good to McGill Plumbing for a long time, and now that Im in a position to help, I will. Anything we can do to get people out and about we will do it. I want to help out. Wood is excited about the event even though it may cause a little disruption to his business. We have a great venue here to host an artist and display the art. It will be good to have people come through here and be part of the festivities, he said. This is the first year Wood will participate in the event, but already he can foresee getting involved next year. I dont see any reason to think I wouldnt get involved, he said. I like what the library foundation is doing and if it is going to help support the local library, then Im all for it. The library foundation started in 1987. This will be the seventh year the foundation has run the Art Hop, bringing in lots of funds to support the library. Were looking at making around $20,000, said Thompson. It is our main fundraiser of the year. As much fun as it sounds, Thompson said it isnt easy to put together the event year after year. It really takes a good group of volunteers about a year to put it together, he said. We will start working on next years event in May. Thompson also is quick to point out that it takes generous sponsors to make it happen as well. In addition to the four participating sponsors, the foundation also has the help of a group of main sponsors. They are: Raymond James, Largo Medical Center, C1 Bank and the Palms of Largo. Thompson said that despite the work that goes into making the event happen, it is all worth it, not just for the monetary return but also for what it does for the community. At the end of the night you feel good, he said. It is a great event where people have a great time, and it is rewarding to see people leave happy knowing they have supported the library and the foundation.Photos courtesy of SCOTT THOMPSONAbove, Debbie Welsh, owner of Coutured of Largo, left, and boutique manager Carmen Chaseat last years Art Hop at Largo Public Library.

ART HOP, from page 1A SMOKING, from page 1APlaying Unplugged event, held April 26 at Largo Central Park, a tobacco-free event. In support of the measure, the Pinellas County Health Department provided $1,500 toward printing costs for the event. Commissioners took another cue from the health departments student group, Students Working Against Tobacco, or SWAT, to pass a resolution urging Largo businesses not to sell candy-flavored tobacco, reportedly marketed to youth despite the fact that those younger than 18 cant buy it. We really want kids to stop being targeted by these companies, said Daniel Pate, a member of SWAT and student at Seminole High School. If we get enough information out there, the hope is that the people selling these products will realize that its probably not good to market these things to children to replace the smokers that have died from it beforehand. The city worked with SWAT coordinator Steven Sergent, from the health department, to write the resolution.The new high schoolAt the request of the commission, Largo High Principal Brad Finkbiner presented the latest rough designs for the renovations of the high school. Construction crews will begin tearing down the old buildings in June. Classes will be held in the old Largo Central Elementary School facility as well as portables for hopefully no more than two school years. The school is partnering with the city to relocate practices for the schools many sports and activities. For the next two years, we will be inconvenienced, but we think in the long run this will be a chance to showcase Largo, Finkbiner said. The administration wants to keep the design of the five pillars, which currently grace the front of the school. The pillars in the new school will be built with bricks from the old building as a way of honoring the schools 50-year history, Finkbiner said. Preliminary designs also included a Packer walk, a passageway featuring bricks purchased by alumni, which student athletes would have to walk past on the way to the fields. But along with remaining connected to its past, the new school will be as modern and efficient prototypical, even as possible, Finkbiner said. The principal said he has been overwhelmed by the intensity of Packer pride since becoming its principal two years ago. Were very proud of Largo High and very proud of this community. We want students to be proud of this school, he said.Largo to foreclose on propertyCommissioners also authorized the city manager to pursue foreclosure on a property at 3221 Hillsdale Ave., which has been racking up code enforce-New Wawa donates via sandwich contest By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO A group of 10 Largo firefighters and police officers underwent an unexpected type of training last week: hoagie-building boot camp. The team at the new Wawa at 8910 Ulmerton Road showed the citys finest and bravest how to build their signature sandwiches for a contest to celebrate the opening of the store and gas station Feb. 27. The resulting competition involved many handfuls of airborne lettuce and tomatoes, flung between the opposing teams as they battled to build 30 hoagies faster than the other. The team of five firefighters claimed the winning trophy, but Wawa donated $1,000 on behalf of both teams for their participation. The police officers named Suncoast Hospice as their charity of choice while the firefighters donated their winnings to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. In the ceremonies that preceded the contest, local officials welcomed the mid-Atlantic company, which began opening stores in Tampa Bay last year, to its first Largo location. Were really happy that Wawa has opened here, Largo commissioner Curtis Holmes said. We understand youre going to be opening a few more in our fair community, and I can hardly wait for that. The store is the second of 25 in Central Florida that the company plans to open this year. Its the 35th Florida store since the company began expanding into the state in 2012, a fact that Florida Rep. Larry Ahern attributed to the states business policies. From our end, we agree Florida is one of the most business-friendly states, said Todd Souders, director of Wawa store operations in Florida. We can open stores much quicker down here than we can at the mid-Atlantic. General manager for the new store, Roxanne Dowell, threw a ceremonial first pitch to mascot Phillie Phanatic, on loan from the Phillies spring training in Clearwater. On behalf of my team, we look forward to becoming a part of your community and serving all the residents for years to come, Dowell said. She will lead a team of almost 60 fulland part-time employees, new jobs in the area because of the store. For more information, call the store at 581-5042 or visit www.wawa.com. Photos by JULIANA A.

CorrectionThe story about Charlie Tulums Taco Shack, which ran in the Largo Leader Feb. 27, incorrectly attributed the sculptures on display in the yard of the establishment. The art is the work of metal sculptor Robert Buck, who leases the space to the taco shack and runs his business from 707 First Ave. SW. in Largo. ment fines as a blight to the surrounding community for seven years. The owner of the property has died since code enforcement personnel first visited the property in July 2007. The property was remanded to his estate but no surviving relative has stepped up to improve it or pay the citys liens against it. Charlene Lichatowich spoke on behalf of herself and several neighbors, describing deplorable conditions of the property, several species of pests that make it their home and the neighborhoods continuing efforts to mow and clean up the property, mitigating its negative effect on their property values. City Attorney Alan Zimmet warned commissioners and the residents that the foreclosure process, including a due diligence search for heirs, could take up to a year and cost an estimated $12,000. If the city is the highest bidder at the end of the process, staff plans to tear down the dilapidated structure and convert the property to affordable housing.Above, Largo firefighters, in yellow, and police officers, in blue, race to assemble 30 sandwiches.

Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. According to staff notes, the new facility, to be located at 14790 49th St. in Clearwater, will be an extension of the countys mobile health unit, which is a federally qualified health center that currently serves the homeless population at 12 locations countywide. More specifically, the overall objective of this project is to provide a new health care facility to serve as a patient-centered medical home that uniquely serves the needs of homeless individuals through in-house medical care and social support services, staff said. Plans call for the facility to provide medical and dental care, as well as house a 24-hour medical respite facility to provide convalescent care for clients recently released from a hospital. The project is divided into two phases. Phase 1 will include programming, schematic designs/design development and construction documents to allow for accurate subcontractor bidding and pricing that will be used to come up with a guaranteed lump sum price. Phase 2 is the building construction phase. The commission will approve the lump sum price prior to the start of Phase 2. The building will be constructed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, aka LEED, recommendations, but due to costs will not be formally certified. Staff said cost of Phase 1 should not exceed $265,942. An additional cost for permits and application fees is estimated at $112,783 for a total cost of $378,725. Total cost of the project Phase 1 and Phase 2 is $4.5 million to be funded by a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Capital Grant, approved May 1, 2012, for $5 million. Health and Community Services Director Gwendolyn Warren told commissioners to continue to qualify for the grant, a decision to move forward had to be made Feb. 25. Commissioners asked a number of questions about the cost of operations and maintenance for the new facility. Paul Sacco, director of Real Estate Management, said O&M costs had been estimated at $150,000 a year. He deferred questions about staffing to Warren. Warren said O&M costs would be paid for from the Health and Community Services budget. She said ongoing negotiations for staffing were continuing with a number of the countys partners that currently provide homeless services, as well as area hospitals. Were working on it, she said. The goal is to get people into treatment. Other sources of funding Warrens staff is looking at include homeless medical assistance programs and federal grants. She said the biggest anticipated shortfall is for equipment needs dental chairs, furniture for exam rooms and the like. Were trying to get grants and manage our resources, she said. She said cost of care would be paid for by Medicaid and private insurance billing and money from the general fund to pay for uninsured clients. Warren and her staff are working on a number of reports that are expected to be complete in May. My big concern is how to pay for this, Commission Chair Karen Seel said. Were still on a wing and a prayer. We had 10 medical homes, now we have five and this will be six, Warren said. I believe we can manage it. She said the grant includes a mandated time line. The county is currently behind about one year. Warren told commissioners if they didnt continue to move the project forward, the money could be lost. This gives me no choice, Seel said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said much of the information the commissioners wanted to know had been provided in past meetings; however, he admitted it might be helpful to have a report that put everything together in one package. Its not firmed up on where the resources are coming from, Seel said. Its not signed, sealed and delivered. It cant be signed, sealed and delivered until approval, Warren replied. She said agreements had been made with some partners, specifically the Juvenile Welfare Board and All Childrens Hospital. I cant promise anything. I really cant, Warren said. The plan is to not come back for resources. It is not my intention as long as Im director to ask for more resources. LaSala suggested scheduling a work session to discuss the details and work that has already been done to secure resources to staff the facility. Seel continued to express her concerns about the complications of realigning resources, saying it could be problematic. The devil is in the details, Warren agreed.

A second detention deputy has been disciplined for failing to immediately report the use of force and misrepresenting the facts of the incident, which occurred on Aug. 31, 2013 at the Pinellas County Jail. According to internal affairs investigators, detention deputy Joel De Los Reyes, 51, was assigned to supervise a juvenile pod at the Pinellas County Jail. Investigators say De Los Reyes became engaged in a verbal exchange with one of the inmates over whether the television would remain on or off; and regarding horseplay between inmates. De Los Reyes summoned assistance from detention deputy Adrian Nanu, 49, who entered the housing area through an emergency door, which remained opened and unsecured. At the same time, an inner cell door used to secure the juvenile inmates was left open. Nanu remained outside the emergency doors. De Los Reyes decided to remove the inmate, identified as Steven Valentin, 16, of New Port Richey from the cell. Deputies say he walked him over to the day room, pushed him onto a table. De Los Reyes continued to escort inmate Valentin out toward the emergency door, where Nanu was now entering. As they walked toward the door, De Los Reyes delivered a knee strike and an elbow strike to inmate Valentin. Nenu documented in his supplement initially that inmate Valentin was verbally abusive toward De Los Reyes. Nenu initially indicated that he witnessed the deputy deliver a guided custodial touch to the inmate, but later admitted that this was an inaccurate representation. De Los Reyes failed to report the use of force to his chain of command. He initially stated the inmate was not compliant and that his strike was not excessive. He later admitted to using excessive force. De los Reyes resigned during internal affairs investigation. The Sheriffs Office Robbery/Homicide Unit also investigated. De Los Reyes turned himself in to the jail at about 10 a.m. Feb. 24 on charges of battery. Nenu received a seven-day suspension for failing to report the incident to supervision immediately and for misrepresenting the facts. Video of the incident can be viewed at www.TBNweekly.com/content _articles/022414_pco-04.txt.Contract for causeway bait house approved By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners gave unanimous approval Feb. 25 to a contract for professional design build services with Caladesi Construction Company of Largo for the Belleair Causeway bait house. The bait house will be located adjacent to the Belleair Causeway Bridge at 3900 West Bay Drive in Belleair Bluffs. According to staff notes, the building will be constructed on an elevated deck system of about 1,760 square feet and will be designed to allow space for a private concessionaire to do business. The concessionaire, to be selected through a separate competitive process, will be required to install his or her own equipment and furnishings. The project is divided into two phases. Phase 1 includes programming schematic design/design development and construction documents to come up with a guaranteed lump sum price. Phase 2 is the building construction phase. Commissioners will approve the lump sum price prior to beginning Phase 2. Staff estimates that the project will take about one year to complete. Cost of Phase 1 is not to exceed $86,960. The total estimated project cost for Phase 1 and Phase 2 is $675,000. Funding is coming from the countys Capital Improvement Program via Penny for Pinellas sales tax. According to the project scope, preliminary site planning was done with Southwest Florida Water Management District during the construction of the Belleair Causeway Bridge, which began in 2006. Construction of the bridge was completed in 2010. When the bridge was constructed the boat ramp park and its bait house was closed. A new park opening it January 2010 did not include a new bait house. County staff recommended delaying the bait house and addition of permanent restrooms due to budget cuts to the capital improvement budget. Officials talked about the possibility of allowing a concessionaire to open a mobile bait house until permanent facilities could be built. However, negotiations for a temporary mobile concessionaire did not work out. The Board of Adjustments for the city of Belleair Bluffs rejected a variance in January 2011 from a potential concessionaire because plans did not meet code requirements. County commissioners agreed to move the restrooms and bait house up in the schedule of CIP projects in June of 2012. Permanent restroom facilities finally opened in May 2013. The bait house will conclude the work originally scheduled to occur with construction of the bridge. Construction of the new bait house will include access, walkways, trash storage, equipment pads, landscaping, screening and all other site features as required. The facility will include space for lease to a concessionaire, who would install and operate his or her own equipment and furnishings to supply bait, food and drink to the public. One restroom and a back deck with seating for 19 are included in the design.

Jack Latvala of Clearwater recently received the 2014 Moffitt Momentum Award during Moffitts annual Business of Biotech Conference. The award was created by Moffitt Cancer Center as a way to honor leaders in the community who have championed the efforts of Moffitt and cancer research. It is given to those public servants whose tireless efforts have benefitted the entire institution over the years, and in turn, who have made a difference in the lives of those individuals battling cancer in Florida, said Dr. Alan List, President and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center. Sen. Latvala was instrumental in passing legislation in 2012 to increase Moffitts share of Floridas cigarette taxes. The additional funding that tax provided to Moffitt enabled the institution to begin construction on its new McKinley Avenue campus, which is scheduled for a 2015 grand opening. The facility will create hundreds of jobs and will give Moffitt expanded capacity to treat many more cancer patients. I am honored to receive this very prestigious award because it symbolizes a partnership that I have always enjoyed with the Moffitt family over the years, said Latvala, Moffitt is a top-notch institution that has always gone above and beyond to help members of my community and to touch the lives of cancer patients from all over this state, and I am proud of the work we have collaborated on over the years.McCabe remains on Violent Crime and Drug Control CouncilTALLAHASSEE Bernie McCabe of Largo was one of three reappointed by Gov.

MARNIE JACOBOWITZPINELLAS PARK Spc. Robert R. Ortiz Jr., a supply specialist with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, Army Reserve Medical Command, recently competed in ARMEDCOMs prestigious Best Warrior Competition. The event took place Feb. 24-27, 2014. Ortiz, 20, a Pinellas Park soldier, started his intense training for this competition last year when he was selected as alternate. I chose to compete in the Best Warrior Competition to better myself as a soldier, develop confidence and to improve my soldering skills, said Ortiz. He is one of only 13 soldiers of approximately 9,500-strong ARMEDCOM Warriors to be selected to compete for this honor. Upon completion of BWC, competitors are afforded the opportunity to attend Fort Bragg Air Assault School. Ortiz, a native of Lockport, Ill., currently resides in Safety Harbor. He is looking forward to taking advantage of this opportunity. The Best Warrior Competition was developed by retired Sergeant Major of the Army Jack Tilley in 2002, testing soldiers physical endurance, military knowledge, and mental perseverance. The competition is an opportunity for Warriors to highlight their military skills in a competitive environment. The grueling four-day event competition taxes each soldier mentally and physically. It includes a timed written exam, physical fitness test, and a number of mentally and physically challenging exercises including day land navigation, urban orienteering courses, road march, weapons qualification on rifles and pistols, hand-to-hand combative tournament, tactical combat casualty care, and mystery events. Ortiz began his intense training in preparation for the higher command level competition intended to select the noncommissioned officer and junior enlisted Soldier of the Year for ARMEDCOM. The winner advances to train and prepare through U.S. Army Reserve Command, and upon winning will go on to represent the Army Reserve Command to the Army wide Best Warrior Competition to be held later in the year. The Army Reserve Medical Command has been represented at the top Army event in 2009 by Staff Sgt. Aaron Butler, a medical logistics NCO from Three Forks, Mont., at the Department of the Army level competition. Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.com Photo courtesy of DVIDSSpc.

Grants are typically $1,000 per year in $500 increments dependent upon a review of grades, finances and course load after each semester. The College Fund has no paid employees. The financial contributions from its directors and advisers exceed its administrative costs, allowing 100 percent of the donations from the public to be used to support students. Since 1965 the College Fund has awarded nearly one million dollars in scholarships to nearly 700 Pinellas County residents, enabling them to achieve their goal of a college education and thereby improve themselves, their familys living standard and their role in the community.

Board members voted Feb. 26 to change the order of general public comments. Moving comments after regular meetings, instead of before, will return proceedings to how they were before the schedule was amended in September 2011, school officials said. The goal of the change is to move public comments on agenda items closer to the proceedings for agenda items, allowing for more effective comments, efficient use of time, and a more positive experience for those attending School Board meetings. Morning meetings will generally begin at 10 a.m. and evening meetings will begin at 5 p.m., a half hour earlier than before.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, March 6, 2014Has any Supreme Authority written a book listing the proper and improper ways for us to talk with one another? If so, Ive missed it. Of course, many books exist that teach us how to become a better conversationalist. Im not referring to that skill. What concerns me is the absence of any rulebook that defines when, in a civilized conversation, a person should speak and when to shut the hell up. Have you noticed that today there are very few listeners? These are people who, perhaps in childhood or in a finishing school, were taught to remain silent while the other guy was speaking. If and when silence finally occurred, then it was your turn. No more, or rarely, does conversation work that way. Today, closely observe talkers you know, especially if theyre appearing on a TV or radio program. Youll find few polite listeners. If and when you do identify such persons, theyll be the ones in the corner who everyone ignores. In modern conversation, youd better learn to be an interrupter, and a forceful one. If youre not prepared to cut off the current speakers flow in mid-thought, you might as well just leave. Youre a nobody, a cipher, an odd duck who just sat there. Occasionally I encounter a monologuist (I hope thats a real word). He or she is someone who began chattering at birth and has never really stopped except during sleep or surgery. They dont know how, or why they should listen to another persons thoughts. In such cases, I sometimes carry a kitchen timer or just look at my watch. I make a bet with myself about how long Chatty Kathy or Voluble Vince will blabber on before they run out of air. I sit there confounded that so many words can issue in an unbroken stream from one persons alleged brain. Some folks see nothing wrong with being interrupted in mid-sentence. Thats how real people talk with each other, Driver. Conversation isnt a chess game or a college debate. Its give and take. Maybe so. But most people would rather give than take. Some wit once said, The opposite of talking isnt listening its waiting. I must confess my views on conversation are shaped by how quickly I bore people when its my turn to talk. Im adept at quips, but my narratives plod. I could be giving an eyewitness account of a terrorist attack on the White House, and my listeners would quickly nod off or beg, Bob, please shut up. People interrupt me just to shut me up. Its on the typical TV panel discussion that you see the worst manners and the most interruptions. Example: Five days a week, Whoopi Goldberg and several other celebrity women sit down for a chatterfest known as The View. For the next half-hour or so they proceed to babble on about all sorts of topics, none of which become clear to the viewing audience because none of the panelists is permitted to express a complete thought without being cut off in mid-sentence. This is conversation? Or is it the way show-biz people (male and female) are supposed to talk? A similar gabbing contest can be seen on Fox News each afternoon, on a program called The Five. Several men and women sit around a table to exchange opinions on current events. But what we see and hear is mostly rapid-fire wisecracks and punchlines, and very little solid information on whats happening in the real world. The panelists seem to be on a quota system, with the prize going to whoever can score the most interruptions. I find relief by watching any of several instructive interview programs, such as those hosted by Bill Moyers, Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley. Although these guys will occasionally break in with a noteworthy point, they usually grant their guests the dignity of letting them speak freely. A major victory for civilized conversational restraint was scored recently when CNN fired its prissy, tiresome and often ill-mannered commentator Piers Morgan. Although his lengthy news background fully qualified him to hold his job, Morgans obstreperous interviewing style made me want to flip my TV switch to the Weather Channel or a Jerry Seinfeld re-run. As I write this, rumors say that veteran interviewer Larry King would like to replace Morgan. Millions would welcome that move, Id guess. King was sometimes mocked for his many marriages and pedestrian intellect, but he usually asked interesting common-man questions. Best of all, he allowed his guests to respond. He conducted a genuine talk show, not a fencing match.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net.President Barack Obama called Afghan President Hamid Karzais bluff Tuesday.Obama let it be known that because Karzai is unlikely to sign a bilateral security agreement essential to keeping some U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014 he had asked the Pentagon to work on a plan to withdraw all troops before 2015. Obama has good reason to want to cut Karzai off at the knees. Karzai wont sign the security agreement despite unanimous support from the Loya Jirga, a council of elders with political say in Afghanistan. He released 65 Taliban from the Bagram prison despite U.S. protests that the detainees had been involved in attacks that wounded coalition and Afghan forces. The Afghan people have been amazing allies, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon told the National Press Club on Monday. President Karzai has not. Even before the Karzai phone call, McKeon was concerned that Obama might go soft on the mission. In 2008, Obama was something of a hawk on the region. He appalled Hillary Clinton when he said that he would pursue actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets in Pakistan whether President Pervez Musharraf liked it or not. He argued that unlike Iraq, Afghanistan was a war of necessity and the right battlefield. At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, he pledged, I will end this war in Iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Toward that end, Obama ordered a surge of 30,000 troops in 2009. Unfortunately, he signaled a lack of resolve when he also announced that he would start to withdraw surge troops in mid-2011. As he wrote in his memoirs, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates concluded that the president doesnt trust his commander, cant stand Karzai, doesnt believe in his own strategy and doesnt consider the war to be his. For him, its all about getting out. McKeon is baffled as to why Obama doesnt talk up the good news coming out of Afghanistan. As the April presidential election looms, major candidates support the security agreement. Afghan national security forces have come a long way, although they still need U.S. support. But with Operation Enduring Freedoms death toll exceeding 2,300, U.S. support is weak. In November 2001, less than 1 in 10 Americans saw the war as a mistake. Now, Gallup reported this month, Americans are as likely to say U.S. military involvement there was a mistake as to say it was not. Tom Umberg, a former Democratic state assemblyman in California and an Afghanistan War veteran, disagrees. We still have a clear national interest there, he told me. At this very moment, there are children attending schools where they are planning to kill Americans and U.S. allies. They are our sworn enemies. The question Americans should ask themselves, he added, is whether they want Afghanistan to return as the petri dish for terrorism that it once was. Obama has every right to demand a signed agreement as a condition for continued but limited U.S. military support. But voters should be aware that if Washington were to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan, the war might be over, but the threat would not.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. Politics is a dirty word. Citizen approval for the U.S. Congress has dipped to just 9 percent, down from 14 percent scarcely five months ago. It is the lowest in the history of the Gallup Poll. President Obama, once believed by some to be the nations savior, now has an approval rating of just 41 percent. That figure is expected to slide further as Obama continues to stumble aimlessly through the nations maze of economic, social and other challenges. The state level numbers arent better. Gov. Rick Scott, who reportedly will be spending $100 million of his own money to support his re-election campaign, shows an approval rating of around 30 percent, depending on the poll. He is pitted this November against former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned Independent turned Democrat who has a record of flip-flopping or simply dodging issues. The Florida Legislature should be hiding their collective heads in shame for their own measly average approval rating. Like their federal counterparts, home-grown lawmakers have a reputation for allegedly being bartered by big business and special interest groups. Do Florida lawmakers accept money for their favors? All you need to do is visit the Florida state campaign database at election.dos.state.fl.us/campaignfinance/contrib.asp to see what state representatives are accepting in exchange for their considerations. I will not pinpoint any particular policymaker, but what you will find by entering a name in that database is bound to shock you. The total contributions amounted to staggering sums for the 2012 general election. No doubt money is being exchanged for the 2014 contests. There are reasons why contributors to Pinellas County lawmakers come from places like Fort Myers, Ocala and Jacksonville, along with donors from New Orleans, Indiana, New York, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania. Donors embody law firms, utilities, insurance companies, and the health care, agricultural, pharmaceutical, finance, political organizations and many other special interest groups and lobbyists. Included in the list is American Traffic Solutions Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz. ... the very same folks who bring us all those nifty red light cameras that have sprung up in various municipalities under the guise of traffic safety. And if you dont believe that red light cameras are all about filling municipal coffers, visit www.atsol.com/. Right on the front page of the ATS website it clearly states, Learn more about the economic benefit red-light safety cameras can bring to your community. Note the words economic benefit. Floridas red light camera law, officially known as the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, faces legislative challenges this spring. Although previous attempts to eliminate or harness the cameras have failed, some state lawmakers are again attempting to repeal the law that governs them. During one five-year period (2006-2011) ATS handed out more than $240,000 to candidates for state office and another $1.3 million to lobby state and municipal governments, much of that in the Sunshine State. Florida legislators later killed red-light camera proposals. It should be interesting to see what happens this year. What it all boils down to is that we need new blood in municipal, county, state and federal offices. The same ole, same ole politicians, some of whom bounce from one public office to another over their lifetime, should be replaced by individuals with integrity, openness and unsullied initiatives for Floridas future. The political machine of this state and country needs to stop being oiled by special interests with deep pockets ... so it grinds to a halt and becomes a part of history.Tom Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey dautrey@TBNweekly.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli accounting@TBNweekly.com Advertising Director: Jay Rey jrey@TBNweekly.com Classied Advertising Manager: Wendy Edwards wedwards@TBNweekly.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown production@TBNweekly.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter webmaster@TBNweekly.com Beach Beacon: Bob McClure bmcclure@TBNweekly.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl alundahl@TBNweekly.com Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Largo Leader: Juliana A.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSTime to ban kite boarding and kite surfing?Editor: Near sunset Feb. 9 at Pass-A-Grille beach a cool, cloudy day was being enjoyed by kite boarders and beachcombers alike Suddenly, with the silent swiftness of the wind, a beach-walking woman was struck from behind by an errant kite boarders rig. Thrown 10 yards garroted by kite wires she was slammed hard to the ground, sustaining multiple cuts, abrasions, contusions, fractures to the right hand and serious shoulder damage. As she lay bleeding, surrounded by shocked bystanders, the kite boarder fled the scene. This mans behavior is unacceptable and may call for kite boarder legislation and enforcement. His acts of maliciousness or incompetence were followed by cowardice or callousness. That cannot be tolerated. Everyone should be able to safely walk the beaches. The excitement and freedom of the kite boarder shouldnt have to be impeded. However, personal freedom and personal responsibility go hand-in-glove. If kite boarders will not be responsible, then they must be regulated. This regulation could include: specific training and certifications, carrying liability insurance, restriction to specific areas or perhaps regulation means banning kite boarders permanently from populated areas. Good. Charles D. Updegrove Falls Church, Va.The cost of Obamacare: Is it too much?Editor: On Dec. 11 a reader wrote a letter to the Tampa Bay Times saying that he was pleased that through the new Affordable Care Act his 26year-old daughter was able to get medical insurance that also included some dental coverage. He lamented that at over $4,000 a year ($340 a month) it was quite expensive. She doesnt qualify for any subsidy because her earnings of $30,000 put her over the threshold. Is the cost too much? Lets pretend the readers daughter is in Ontario, Canada, and earning the same $30,000 where the health care is free. Or is it free? First, she would have to pay more in federal income tax. Her current rate of 11.08 percent would jump to 15 percent. Since Florida doesnt have a state income tax and Ontario does, she would have to deduct another 5.05 percent for the Ontario provincial income tax. Whenever she buys something from a retail store, instead of Floridas low 6 or 7 percent retail sales tax she would be paying 13 percent. Over the course of a year, with everyday purchases, that adds up. If she bought a $30,000 automobile, tack on an extra $2,100 over and above what shed be paying in Florida. Gas for her car would be about $2 more or $5.20 a gallon (converted from liters) and heaven forbid if she likes a little vodka in her orange juice. A 1.75 liter of Smirnoff Vodka can be bought in Florida for $18. The same bottle bought in Ontario is $54. Plus she would be paying sales tax on almost everything from taxicabs to dry cleaning, even lawyers fees. There is no dental or prescription coverage provided by the Ontario plan. She would be purchasing this insurance from an outside source such as Blue Cross, which includes co-pays and would add another $1,008. ($84 a month) to her health care costs. If one were to break down the taxes that a Canadian pays (of any wage and age bracket up to 65) to get his or her free health care, plus having to pay for prescriptions and dental work out of his or her own pocket, it would work out to more than what an American is going to be paying for Obamacare. This is offset by the fact that health coverage in Canada doesnt include deductibles or co-pays. The results are? The American hospitals, especially the for-profit ones, offer the best in the world in the way of technology, equipment, treatment and low wait time, but up till now, it was only for those who had insurance coverage or who could afford it. With the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) most will now qualify for those same benefits. In this writers opinion, Obamacare is certainly a good deal for some 37 plus million Americans. Also, it will reduce the numbers of Americans who go bankrupt for the nonpayment of medical bills. The downside? The insurance companies who administer these programs bring in the premiums and then pay out the medical bills; whats left over, as their profit is 12 billion dollars. Not chump change at all. Imagine if there was a not-for-profit system similar to what the Canadians have and that same 12 billion got poured back into the medical system. It would certainly help.

Patrick named bishop of Latter day SaintsLARGO Alex Patrick of Indian Shores was recently named bishop of the Seminole ward for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. Patrick, who is married and has six children, also works in the churchs educational system. 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 Latterday Saints, this position is unpaid and typically lasts around five years. Two counselors assist each bishop. Patrick is supported by first counselor Richard Flora and second counselor Victor Pavone. Together these 3 men form a bishopric, which oversees the spiritual and social needs of its 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 its Sunday worship. Services start at 10 a.m. each Sunday. The address for the church building is 9001 106th Ave., Largo.Good Samaritan ChurchPINELLAS PARK Strategies for Independence will be presented Saturday, March 8, 10 a.m., at Good Samaritan Church, 6085 Park Blvd. Liz Barlowe, certified care manager and health advocate, will facilitate the forum.

All are welcome to this free presentation. They will have books and pamphlets written by Steven available. Steven grew up in Pakistan into a Islamic reformist sect. He left home at age 18 to become a Sunni Muslim and studied the principles of Islam, even memorizing the entire Quran. However, when he began to question the tenets of his faith while in his Islamic studies he faced persecution from those around him, and even his family. He miraculously escaped several murderous plots and was able to leave the country. He and his wife now live in Florida. Steven will give his testimony of why he chooses to follow Jesus and not Islam.

How many times do I need to see something to learn that it is real, I should believe it and even depend on it? For example, in our hyper-capitalized society, how much proof do I need to concede that the initial quoted price is not real? The storefront advertises two pair of glasses for $100. But did I want lenses with those new frames? The utilities or cable company rep reassures me that the quoted monthly fee is the true fee. But to get the service, I also will need to pay the swollen list of additional fees. When am I going to learn that there is usually more to it? I have similar questions about dolphin intelligence and their friendliness to man. If a dolphin does the same thing to our research boat on two consecutive surveys, is there more to it than habit? Is the second-timearound behavior the dolphin way to say, I remember what we did before. That was fun! Lets do it again? That certainly could be true of humans. So I have to keep in mind that that explanation could be attributing human traits to an animal unfairly, the offense of anthropomorphism. The goal of the science of animal behavior (ethology) is seeing animals clearly for what they are. That can be difficult. For example, when a dolphin runs through a series of previous behaviors as if on fast-forward, is it ever acknowledging the previous encounter? It was one of those wonderful winter days that reassures us that spring is close. It was clear, calm, beautifully blue, and like San Diego, not warm but not cold. We encountered several pairs of dolphins in short order. En route with the second pair, we spied a third pair going in the other direction. Like cars in opposing lanes on the interstate, the two pairs did not stop and visit. Data done on the second pair, we headed over to the third pair. The smaller of the two, 4-year-old Cutlass, headed over to us as well. He was in a distractible mood. Such dolphins are not engrossed in some on-going activity and are easily attracted to anything going on around them, like nearby boats. Cutlass came over and exhibited a remarkable and engaging set of behaviors, the kind humans love. He got more and more excited; or rather his behaviors become more animated. First, he came up behind the boat and tossed something into the air a couple of times. Distractible dolphins toss all kinds of things (seedpods, small eels, fish, small rays, shells, etc.). However, I did not see any object and the photos revealed only water. Usually, only baby dolphins toss water. Cutlass is long past babyhood. Then he came to the front of the boat and wove under the bow. When we failed to accelerate so he could surf, he returned to the back of the boat and started rolling around. Suddenly he startled and his flukes flipped into the air for a second. Something had goosed him pretty hard. He shot forward underwater and then leapt free of it in a graceful U-turn called a bow. He returned to rolling around at the back of the boat but startled again. Then, in short order, he shot into another graceful bow. But this time it was with his mother, Courtney snapping at his belly. When Cutlass first came over, his mom Courtney had continued swimming toward Johns Pass and the Gulf, their ultimate destination. But she came back and registered her objection to his dawdling by goosing him. That was evidently insufficient to distract him from his tomfoolery at the boat. So she goosed him a second time and finally threatened to T-bone him. Didnt he know that he was supposed to be traveling rhythmically at her side? They had places to go! Cutlass did two more graceful bows (defiantly?), then joined his mother and traveled rhythmically at her side out into the Gulf. Cutlass engaging behavior was not only notable for its dolphin mystique of being friendly toward people. It was also notable as a skillful reference to previous behavior, intentional or not. This was February; we had not seen this pair since October (four months before). I remember that October day well because it was the first time Cutlass engaged our boat clearly and extensively as a mature calf ready to wean instead of a dear but indiscriminate calf (who, like a puppy, loves everybody). His behavior that October day was wonderful to watch. It included object tossing, inspecting the boat, aerial behaviors and gentle play with other youngsters. Consequently, on this fantastic February day, social play was the only missing behavior. I have to wonder if Cutlass remembers that October day too and went so far as to act out his recollections by repeating the highlights of that day. The man who ruptured the wall between humans and other animals, Charles Darwin, thought that the ability to recognize an individual after a considerable passage of time showed the rudiments of a mind. I see way more than basic intelligence in the friendliness of our local bottlenose dolphins, albeit with due caution. However, there is definitely just a bare bones connection between my opening reference to the deceitful prices of our hyper-capitalized society and dolphin psychology: When am I going to learn?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Send her an email at annstats54@gmail.com or visit her website www.goodnaturedstatis tics.com. NOAA advises anyone who sees a stranded dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico to call 877-942-5343 or 877-433-8299.March is when we usually start to see more redfish start to show up. This year, despite all the cold weather, the actions seem to be on track. Schools of fish have been spotted from Tierra Verde all the way north to Tarpon Springs. The best bite lately has been the afternoon high tides. By 2 to 3 p.m., the water has warmed up a good 5 degrees since sunrise. Typically the schools are more easily targeted when the water is high. This seems to give the fish a sense of comfort, and even if they are spooked, theyll often come right back to where they were hanging out. Locating the schools is often more work than actually catching the fish. A productive pattern lately has been to target flats that have plenty of small oyster bars along the mangroves. These oyster bars usually occur on the points of the shoreline and as the current moves in or out, the redfish as well as the mullet will stage up on either side of the point. You can eliminate large areas of fishless water by strictly targeting the points. Trout fishing remains steady and should only get better as the water begins to warm up. Fishing soft-plastic jigs has allowed us to cover more water in a shorter amount of time versus live shrimp. Drifting along flats drop-offs at low tide has yielded trout up to 22 inches. The key to getting bit is working the jig very slowly. Were usually targeting the trout first thing in the morning when the water temperature has been running in the low 60s, still a little chilly even for trout. Best color has been a red and gold 4-inch jerk-bait by D.O.A. This weekends weather was decent enough to venture offshore a few miles in search of some light tackle action with some tasty white grunts and hogfish. Using live shrimp fished on a 0ne and a half-ounce knocker rig we targeted ledges in 40 to 50 feet of water. Fishing was good, although the spot-tail pinfish are thick in these depths, requiring quite a few shrimp to withstand the barrage of activity.

The show runs through March 16. Set in 1920s New York City, the story follows Millie Dillmount, fresh off the train from Kansas. Not 10 minutes after her arrival, Millie gets mugged losing her scarf, hat, shoe and her purse. Seeking help, she chances upon Jimmy Smith, who tells her to go back to Kansas. Millie insists upon staying, so Jimmy recommends the Hotel Priscilla, a rooming house for actresses. Millie ends up finding work as a stenographer; however, her primary motive is to get the head of the company to marry her. Love and other subplots, such as one involving a dragon-lady villainess, interfere with Millies plans to marry strictly for money. Once again, Eight OClock Theatre hooks its audience right out of the gate, delivering a brisk and bouncy opening number showcasing the ensembles textbook harmonies and dazzling choreography.

She brings to the role more than a flawless voice: She endears Millie to the audience, painting her as stubborn but lovable. Dobbert was recently seen in the West Coast Players production of The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!). Before that, she appeared in Eight OClock Theatres production of Forbidden Broadway, for which she won a STAR Award for Favorite Actress in a Musical. Nick Abounader plays Jimmy Smith. To Millie, Jimmy is a bit of a mystery: brash and insulting one moment, charming the next. Abounader successfully conveys Smiths rough edges in such a way that the audience never doubts his integrity. Rachel Crissman gives a solid performance as Miss Dorothy, Millies newfound friend. Crissman makes her debut at EOT with this role, and its a safe bet that shell be appearing in future productions. As Muzzy van Hossmere, Amber Phillips delivers some superlative numbers, including Only in New York and Long As Im Here with You. For comedy relief, the show has the dastardly Mrs. Meers and her two disinclined lackeys, Ching Ho and Bun Foo. Meers, played by Ronnie Farley, is an accomplice in a white slavery ring, notorious for abducting orphans and shipping them off to China. Farley is at her best when she sings They Dont Know. Joe Southall and Michael Shurtz play the Chinese brothers Ching Ho and Bun Foo, respectively. The two deliver their lines in Chinese while subtitles are displayed on a screen above the stage. Their sheer dedication to the roles is praiseworthy. Together, these three cast members instill the show with a delightful degree of campiness. Thoroughly Modern Millie features many more standout performances, including Karen Johnston as Miss Flannery and Stephen Fee as Trevor Graydon. What makes the show enjoyable is the chemistry evident amongst the entire ensemble. Director Linda Woodruff Weir and co-director/stage manager James Grenelle elicit a kind of cohesion from the cast that helps what is essentially a comic pastiche transcend its frivolousness. Its easy to fault Thoroughly Modern Millie for being derivative. It takes a special cast and crew to make the show a success. EOTs production thrives thanks to an excellent cast, imaginative direction, glittery costumes and stunning sets, and outstanding musical direction. Embrace the shows silliness and enjoy its intoxicating energy.

PETERSBURG Casting has been announced for freeFall Theatres upcoming production of the world premiere staging of Mikhel Rauds comedy American Monkey, which will open March 15 and run through March 30, at 6099 Central Ave. Directed by freeFall artistic director Eric Davis, the cast will star Patrick Ryan Sullivan, Chris Jackson, Stefanie Clouse and John Lombardi. This all-new play is a look at what it takes to become a celebrity in the United States in 2014. This dark comedy is set at the auditions for reality televisions most popular talent contest, American Superstar. After a few singers pass through to the next level (there will be a signup before each performance for audience members wanting to sing in front of the fictional judges) a young man (Jackson) enters the studio and decides to turn the tables on the judges (Sullivan, Clouse and Lombardi) and put them and the entertainment industry on trial in his own warped version of Romes Colosseum. The audience will get to choose (by text) which of the judges tragically get to go on to the next round. American Monkey questions the very idea of contemporary entertainment and fame in a brash and uncompromising way that calls to mind the style of director and writer Quentin Tarantino. This show contains adult language and situations and is intended for mature audiences only. Tickets can be purchased at www.freefalltheatre.com or by calling the freeFall Theatre box office at 498-5205.

In 1964, the world witnessed an unforgettable moment in music history as Ed Sullivan brought The Beatles to his Really Big Shew in New York City and to the Napoleon Ballroom of the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach.

He has four platinum albums, five gold albums, 14 No. 1 singles and 23 Top 10 singles to his name. His trademarked voice has shaped the music of todays country music newcomers and the new country music generation. His career in music began shortly after he dropped out of high school. He began playing clubs in Southeast Texas with his father. At 17, he made his first pilgrimage to Nashville to begin recording. While nurturing a growing fanbase in Texas, he released a string of singles that eventually appeared on the 1988 album Doing My Country Thing. In 1990, Chesnutt signed with MCA Records and released his first major-label album Too Cold at Home. The LP produced five Top 10 country hits, including the title track as well as the No. 1 hit Brother Jukebox, Blame It on Texas, Your Love Is a Miracle and Broken Promise Land.

Outlaw, released in 2010, is Chesnutts most recent studio album the 14th of his career. Of all the recorded highlights Chesnutt has enjoyed, they take a back seat to his first love. Chesnutt lives to perform on stage. I just make records because I want people to come see my show, he says on his website. Recording music for folks to just listen to music is great, but Ive got to be out there on stage making it. Word has it that fans who have seen him perform agree.
