Red Hat Tea Party By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO At 19, Cam Simon not only has big ambitions, but his own film premiering at Largo Cultural Center this weekend. The 25-minute film Drink is Simons tribute of respect to veterans and a message of hope to those struggling with alcoholism. The young director began writing the script with local actor Jessy Leros more than a year ago. In essence, Drink is about a Marine who comes home from war with PTSD and turns to alcoholism. But what its really about is its a spiritual journey to overcoming, finding a new way of living your life and becoming a new kind of man, Simon said. Drink will premiere Saturday, March 15, 8 p.m., at the Largo Cultural Center, 120 Central Park Drive. Tickets are $5, with proceeds benefiting the nonprofit veterans organization, Silver Star Families of America. Doors open at 7 p.m. Simon, who lives in Clearwater, has been shooting films since he was 14. As a skateboarder, he brought a camera to the skate park to capture his friends doing their best tricks. Those shots became two full-length videos featuring eight skateboarders, sold in local skate shops as well as internationally, Simon said. From there, Simons interests fell out of skateboarding and into telling stories with film. He worked on music videos for local musicians. For the last year and a half, hes worked with his mother at Citizens Commission on Human Rights Florida, helping produce commercial videos and social media campaigns. Hes studied directing under Tony Armer, cofounder of the St. Petersburg-based Sunscreen Film Festival. Simon met Leros at an acting class in Clearwater, which he was taking to help better understand the acting process as a director. After shooting a short film together in December 2012, the two decided to tackle a bigger film project with a higher production value. The first draft of what would be Drink took only about a week to write, but rewrites took another month.

TORRESLARGO A total of 753 pole signs within the city of Largo still need to be replaced with 8-foot monument signs in the next three years in order for businesses to avoid fines in 2017. Largo commissioners debated the feasibility of that order as the main topic of discussion March 13. They all agreed that the city needed to launch a better marketing campaign to let businesses know of the coming deadline. They disagreed about the merits of the requirement, designed to make Largos roadways look less tacky, as Mayor Pat Gerard put it. They even were divided as to how possible it would be for more than 700 businesses to make the switch. Its impossible. Theres no way thats going to happen, said Commissioner Jamie Robinson. In my opinion, its crazy. I just cant believe were doing this. Robinson later clarified that he wasnt against eventually doing away with pole signs within the city. Commissioner Curtis Holmes also was fine with requiring that businesses make the change when pole signs need to be replaced. Already, 76 monument signs have been built as new businesses have opened or redeveloped their property. But Holmes, who runs First Southeast Insurance out of an office condo on Belcher Road, is one of the business owners who will have to pay for a new sign. He and nine other businesses in the two-building complex will have to split the cost to replace their pole sign. To comply, its going to cost us $2,000 per owner, $20,000 total, he said. I think this should have been grandfathered in. If a sign is damaged, replace it. Storm hits it, replace it. But to tell these people that theyve got three more U.S. House passes flood insurance billYoung director premieres first film Drink in Largo Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESEverest University on East Bay Drive is one of 49 businesses that has converted its pole sign to a monument sign since Largo passed an ordinance in 2007 requiring all businesses to make the transition in 10 years.

About 200 women from five counties attended that day, enjoying a lunch, dancing and entertainment, said event planner Dawn Smolowitz. Another 170 were scheduled to attend a duplicate of the party on March 12. See SIGNS, page 5A By SUZETTE PORTERThe U.S. House of Representatives passed a flood insurance bill March 4 that could signal coming relief for property owners trying to deal with huge rate hikes. Governor Rick Scott called the action the right thing for Floridians. The Houses action on this flood insurance fix tonight is an important win in our fight to undo unfair flood insurance rate hikes that are hurting Florida families, Scott said in a press release after the vote. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said the House bill didnt do enough, but was a good first step. Although it doesnt go as far as the bill we passed in the Senate, its good the House has approved some curbs on flood insurance, Nelson said. For the sake of policyholders facing massive rate hikes, I hope we can get a final version sent to the president quickly. The U.S. Senate approved legislation proposed by Nelson Jan. 30, which would delay many of the flood insurance rate increases for four years, during which time FEMA would be required to study the affordability of the policies and re-evaluate the accuracy of new flood maps. The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, passed by the House, does not delay rate increases but repeals certain sections, according to an analysis from the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. It restores grandfathering and repeals the automatic increase in rates from the sale of a home or a lapsed policy. The legislation limits the annual rate increase to a maximum of 15 percent and proposes refunds for some policyholders who have already paid increased premiums. The House also increased See INSURANCE, page 6APhotos courtesy of CAM SIMONAt right, on the set of Drink, Director Cam Simon, right, speaks with cameraman Freddie Marshall.

County 5A Leader, March 13, 2014Pinellas votes for Jolly to serve in U.S. House of Representatives By SUZETTE PORTERMore than 39 percent of Pinellas Countys 477,635 registered voters participated in the March 11 special District 13 and 12 municipal elections, which is very good, according to Nancy Whitlock, Elections Administrator. Whitlock said Election Day was very smooth. We had no real issues that I know of. There were no lines, she said. Voting went at a steady pace throughout the day. One race of special interest was choosing a new U.S. Representative for District 13 to replace C.W. Bill Young, who died Oct. 18. Young served Pinellas in Congress for nearly 43 years. Municipalities conducting elections included Belleair Bluffs, Clearwater, Gulfport, Indian Shores, Kenneth City, Madeira Beach, Pinellas Park, Redington Shores, Safety Harbor, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach and Tarpon Springs. All municipalities are within Congressional District 13 except Tarpon Springs According to a fact sheet from the Elections Office, 477,635 registered voters were eligible to take part in the District 13 special election as well as 12 municipal elections. Of that number, 460,600 could vote in the District 13 election 170,565 Republicans (37 percent), 159,213 Democrats (34.6 percent), and 130,822 registered as minor party or no party affiliation (28.4 percent). Early voting ended Sunday evening with 5,520 ballots cast. As of close of business Monday, another 122,558 had voted by mail ballot, which was 60.9 percent of 201,369 distributed.Unofficial results District 13 special electionAfter nearly five months without representation in the U.S. House of Representatives, voters in Pinellas Countys District 13 selected Republican David Jolly to take the position left vacant when C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Young, a Republican, served District 13 for nearly 43 years. Jolly, 41, faced Democrat Alex Sink, 65, and Libertarian Lucas Overby, 27, in the March 11 special election. Write-in candidate Michael S. Levinson also qualified to run in the hotly contested election. Jolly will serve an eight-month term. Sink took an early lead with just over 48 percent of the vote, as unofficial results were posted at the Supervisor of Elections website soon after the polls closed at 7 p.m. But, Jolly quickly took over the lead with more than 48 percent and held on until all 225 precincts were counted. Overby chipped in with almost 5 percent, and the writein candidate received less than 1 percent. According to unofficial results, Jolly garnered 88,294 votes, 48.43 percent. Sink took in 84,877 votes, 46.56 percent. Overby received 8,799 votes, 4.83 percent and the write-in candidate received 325 votes, less than 1 percent. According to Elections Administrator Nancy Whitlock, counts from the provisional ballots still have to be added. The unofficial results also did not contain all mail ballots or 10-day overseas ballots. Official election results cannot be certified until votes from the 10day overseas ballots are added, and the earliest that can occur is the 10th day after the election. The deadline to certify official election results is noon on the 12th day after the election. According to the Florida Division of Elections, four candidates have already announced intentions to run for the District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in November.

While they were writing, Simons grandmother passed away, after a life-long struggle with alcoholism. Suddenly, the films main theme was more poignant. It was just more inspiration and motivation to get the film done, Simon said. The film is dedicated to her. Simon remembers watching the disease change his grandmother, even when he was too young to understand what was happening. I would see what the alcohol would do to her, how it just deteriorates somebody, he said. Simon wanted to highlight that process of deterioration on a Marine who thinks of himself as invincible. The main character in Drink, named Will, comes back from a tour in Iraq blaming himself for the death of Jason, his childhood friend. The movie kind of takes a turn into a spiritual journey of how Will uncovers what Jason was trying to tell him, Simon said. Will becomes a new man and redeems himself. He wanted to make a film that people with a variety of struggles could identify with. Tampa actor Aaron Quick Nelson said starring in the film with Leros was a really good experience and hit a personal chord. Nelson was a combat engineer with the Army Reserves and watched several military friends who were psychologically damaged trying to get their life back together. People dont want to pay attention to that. This film focuses a lot on that and what they go cast and crew, Armer and members of the nonprofit and representatives from Silver Star Families of America will be at the premiere to meet with attendees. To follow the films progress on Facebook, visit www.facebook.com/DrinkMovie2013. through, he said. He too has had the experience of watching relatives struggle with alcoholism. Having a film based on that is very inspiring, he said. Nelson, who recently began pursuing his acting career full-time, auditioned for the project after being told about Simons call for actors on Facebook. I read a synopsis of the project, and it really intrigued me, he said. Simon said the project, financed through the crowd-funding site indiegogo.com, has been a major learning experience for him. It was difficult to lead the six actors and a film crew of seven, especially when disagreements broke out. Drink was filmed in seven days, though postproduction took another eight months. Making the film as authentic to the military experience as possible was important to Simon. To that end, the cast and crew worked with a Special Forces veteran who is now a mixed martial arts trainer to make the fight scenes as realistic. Simons biggest compliment was a standing ovation after showing the trailer to a student veteran group at St. Petersburg College. It meant a lot to me that veterans themselves were interested in the film, he said. After the premiere, Simon is submitting Drink to as many film festivals as possible. He hopes to bring the actors the attention they deserve, he said. His goal is to work his way up with every film, bringing himself closer to winning a major film festival. Id like to see myself directing as a living, he said, adding that he understood the challenge. Making it in film is one of the toughest things ever.

TORRESDirector Cam Simon stands outside his home in Clearwater.years to comply or the citys going to get on them, thats not a very good way to do this thing. The smaller monument signs, which can be a maximum of 8 feet tall, will be harder to see from the road, he argued, dangerous even for the motorists trying to read them while traveling at the speed limit of Largos major roads. Complexes that are larger than 3 acres could have a larger sign, city planner Christine McLachlan clarified. Addressing Holmes point that gas stations trying to advertise gas prices were especially at a disadvantage, Gerard said that several new filling stations had opened since 2007 and complied by installing electronic monument signs. If Im going 40 miles per hour I cant see that pole sign either. And I cant remember the last time I went 40 miles per hour on Ulmerton Road, she said. Commissioner Robert Murray said that Largos roadways have undergone a unique transformation by reducing the pole signs. I would hate to do away with the ordinance in and of itself, he said, arguing instead that the city takes into account the economic downturn by delaying the deadline for compliance. The citys community development department does have an assistance program that gives $250 to businesses making the transition, but Gerard said she knew when it passed that that incentive was too measly to make a difference. Only three businesses have utilized those funds. I would like to see us if were serious about this put serious money into providing incentives $250 is not serious, she said. And I would be open, given the downturn, to extending the deadline and doing a very active marketing campaign. Commissioner Woody Brown said it would be unfair to the businesses who did purchase a new sign to change the ordinance too significantly. Gerard agreed. If you dont have a deadline, itll never happen, she said. Its not just going to happen by attrition (that would) take 40, 50 years. Commissioner Michael Smith said the ordinance flew in the face of the citys efforts to be business-friendly. In a few years, (theyre) going to be here with pitch forks and axes, after all of our heads. And I really dont want to be here for that, he said. Gerard said the ordinance was about maintaining a vision for the city. Its about having a backbone too, you know, and be willing to say this is what we want for our city, she said. We can continue to look tacky, but thats not what we want. Gerard said she did want to know how other cities went about similar transitions. The city of Clearwater provided a $5,000 grant per building owner or tenant, according to the citys past research. Staff promised to provide more research on that and other cities efforts. Holmes questioned how soon businesses annexing into the city after 2017 would have to replace existing pole signs and if new tenants could just change the face of an existing sign before the deadline. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin said the city hadnt established a policy for annexed signs after 2017 yet. She also clarified that currently, only if a property was redeveloped or abandoned for more than 90 days did the city require that the pole sign come down. Community development staff will be working with the marketing department to come up with a new advertising campaign, beyond informing businesses through their business receipts. The Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce also has helped the city get the word out to businesses. Robert Klute, assistant community development director, said before the meeting that educating businesses was key to the success of the transition. We dont wish to wait until the end of the amortization period. We want to be proactive with this, he said. Another work session will be scheduled to discuss more incentives and the citys ideas for a marketing campaign. David Jolly will represent Pinellas Countys District 13 in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Long-term relief comes from an annual surcharge of $25 for residential policyholders and $250 fee for commercial and secondary properties. The surcharge will go to the National Flood Insurance Program reserve fund. The House bill does not affect commercial properties, secondary homes or properties with severe losses. Rates for those properties will continue to increase by 25 percent a year. However, rate increases would no longer be triggered with the sale of the property. The Senate bill would enact a four-year delay and would temporarily restore grandfathering. It also would delay rate increases triggered by home sales and delay annual rate increases. It removes the cap for funding of an affordability study and provides short-term relief to premium increases. Members of the Conference Committee will meet to work out the differences before legislation is sent to the president for signing. Pinellas County has been described as ground zero due to the number of properties affected by sky-high flood insurance rate hikes due the affects from the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Horror stories of rate increases have been frequent for months. The real estate industry is reeling. Government officials are concerned that property values could plummet. Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 to try to stabilize the finances of NFIP, which has been in the red since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. INSURANCE, from page 1ASheriff reports continuing decline in crime By SUZETTE PORTERLARGO The crime rate in Pinellas County is going down, in alignment with a statewide trend of record low numbers. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri reported March 5 that the 2013 overall crime rate decreased by 5 percent. Part 1 crimes are down by 5.8 percent. Gualtieris statistics cover only the areas within the sheriffs service area unincorporated Pinellas and the municipalities of Belleair Beach, Belleair Bluffs, Belleair Shore, Dunedin, Indian Rocks Beach, Madeira Beach, North Redington Beach, Oldsmar, Redington Beach, Safety Harbor, Seminole, South Pasadena and St. Pete Beach. Gualtieri pointed out that 2013 is the fifth consecutive year that Part 1 crimes have gone down. Over the past five years, Part 1 crime is down 23.8 percent. Part 1 crimes are the most serious crimes, which according to the FBIs Uniform Crime Report are homicide, forcible sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. Gualtieri reported that in 2013 homicides went down 64.7 percent; forcible sex offenses, 9.72 percent; robbery, 12 percent; burglary, 10.4 percent; larceny, 4.6 percent; and motor vehicle theft, 8.95 percent. Aggravated assault was the only category with an increase up 9.23 percent, which was due to the number of victims not cases, the report said. The number of aggravated assault cases involving firearms also increased by 41 percent. Sixty-one cases were reported in 2012 and 86 in 2013. However, the number of Part 1 crimes involving firearms went down by nearly 24.5 percent. Seventeen homicides were investigated in 2012 one of the highest numbers in recent years. In 2013, the number of homicides went down to six one of the lowest in recent years. In his report, Gualtieri noted that arrests for Part 1 crimes also were increasing up by nearly 22 percent compared to 2012. Arrests for Part 1 and Part 2 crime were up by 9.65 percent. The closure rate for Part 1 crimes also went up by 12.48 percent. He also pointed out that the decrease in crime came at a time when budget cuts had forced a significant decrease in personnel. Over the past five years, PCSO has cut more than 600 positions, including 167 law enforcement deputies, he said. PCSO provides service to more than 50 percent of the total land area in Pinellas and provides primary law enforcement for more than 41 percent of the population. The numbers continue to head in the right direction and its a tribute to the day-to-day good work by all sheriffs office members who have worked tirelessly to achieve this significant and sustained crime reduction, Gualtieri said in a press release.Crime down throughout FloridaThe Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports that the states crime volume is down to a record low. The semi-annual Uniform Crime Report released in November showed that crime volume had dropped 5.2 percent compared to the first six months of 2012. Our communities are on a path to a 43 year crime low, which improves the quality of life for families and benefits all aspects of our communities, Gov. Rick Scott said during a Nov. 19 press conference. The mid-year report showed Graphics courtesy of PCSOTotal Part 1 crimes are down 23.83 percent from 2009 to 2013 in Pinellas County Sheriffs service area.that violent crime was down 3.5 percent statewide, including a 10.6 percent drop in murders, 2 percent drop in robberies and a 4.2 percent decrease in aggravated assault. Non-violent crime also decreased 5.5 percent. These numbers reflect historic lows, said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. Law enforcement is working hard to make Florida a safe place to live, work and play.

Contact me to get started. 022714SBLB 031314 031314 Fire station concerns addressed By WAYNE AYERSBELLEAIR BLUFFS Renewed discussions of a new fire station to be built on property across from the Belleair Bluffs City Hall has revived residents concerns about the facility. Mayor Chris Arbutine said at the March 10 City Commission workshop that residents are asking questions ranging from EMS response times to noise and traffic concerns, and what role the city will play in the operation of the fire department. There has been some criticism of the new station, Arbutine said. Some residents are jumping the gun and coming to conclusions without knowing what were doing. I want to relieve their fears. Arbutine said the city worked very hard to get out of the fire business and was not about to re-enter it. The new station, which would replace Largo fire station No. 43 on Indian Rocks Road, is being placed on the property across from City Hall because it is the best location to assure that current emergency response times can be maintained, he said. Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis, who was present at the meeting, backed Arbutines comments. Willis said the fire department did an analysis and found that moving the station from its present location up or down Indian Rocks Road takes it outside of the seven-and-a-half minute contracted EMS response time. We have a very narrow window of opportunity as to where to place the station, Willis said. This location is perfect, she said. This is where the station has to be, in order to meet the (desired) response times. If we want to do better than sevenand-a-half minutes, it has to be within this block or we cant reach you in 5-6 minutes. Arbutine said residents living near the station are concerned about station noise, from sirens and the fire engines pulling in and out. People living on Pinehurst Avenue behind the site of the proposed station want a concrete wall built to buffer the sounds, he said. That has been included in every discussion weve had on the station and will be a part of the plans, Arbutine said. Also, Arbutine said Public Works Director Robert David had determined the city can vacate a right of way and close off Bay Way Drive. That would provide the opportunity to move the station further away from the residences, he said. Arbutines contention that all affected residents were notified five years ago of the fire stations location was disputed by some. We were never informed in any form or shape about the station, said Wanda Rusinowski, who lives on Los Gatos Drive. Bay Way Drive resident David Cortright said after the meeting that he also was never informed about the stations coming. Everyone was informed, Arbutine contended. No residents were kept in a veil about the plans, he said. Arbutine also criticized proposed plans by the county to cut $7 million from the EMS budget and make changes to the system. The county commissioners dont know anything about EMS but are acting as if they are experts, Arbutine said. He said the county commission supports the PSTA (Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority) $83 million Greenlight Pinellas initiative for a rail transit route and expanded bus service, yet want to cut EMS. Its that type of inconsistency that I dont like, he said. Commissioner Joe Barkley, who is a PSTA board member, said the extra money for the transit initiative is coming from other sources and would have a minimal impact on most homeowners taxes. The Greenlight Pinellas program calls for a 1-cent sales-tax increase to replace the property tax that funds PSTA.Tax Collectors Office joins Donate LifeCLEARWATER Employees at the Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office are teaming up with Donate Life Florida in March to make Floridians aware of the life-saving role they can play by registering as an organ, tissue and eye donor. Tax Collector employees are participating in the annual Donate Life Challenge to promote awareness of Floridas organ donor registry. I am honored that my offices can be part of an effort like this that helps save lives said Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson. We have been involved in the organ donor effort since we began issuing driver licenses in 2001. Tax Collector employees help register potential organ donors by asking all driver license customers if they would like to join the registry. Last years Donate Life Challenge led to more than 85,000 new donor registrations throughout Florida. Organ transplantation let me walk both my daughters down the aisle in 2012, said double lung recipient Pete Schwob. I will forever be in their wedding pictures and know that they are in good hands with their great husbands all because someone said yes to organ donation! More than 3,700 Floridians currently await organ transplants, and more than 120,000 patients are on the nationwide list. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. Register as an organ donor: 1. On Donate Life Floridas website at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org 2. When renewing your driver license online at www.GoRenew.com 3. When obtaining a new or renewed driver license in an office 4. By calling Donate Life Florida at 1-877-35SHARE (1-877-357-4273) For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHealthy AgingA happy emotional outlook and sharp mental state are critical building blocks for overall good health in seniors. Physical health pales when a person suffers emotional distress and isolation, making them unable to enjoy life. In fact, emotional health and a sharp mind are critical for seniors when physical limitations prevail. Physical health can be maintained by exercising within your individual abilities, with your doctors consent. Exercise helps preserve muscle tone and bone density and can aid in balance and coordination. Daily exercise can be as simple as walking around the block or participating in a group exercise class at the local gym. Consuming a wellbalanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, and protein provides nutrients your body needs to function properly inside and out. Mental health is facilitated by challenging yourself every day. Challenges can include participating in new activities, playing games you never have before or merely extending your knowledge in one subject. Creativity is key in keeping your brain sharp and your senses focused. Emotional health becomes endangered as seniors face the loss of a spouse and other loved ones. Isolation can become prevalent due to physical limitations or the lack of desire to socialize. Anxiety and depression can affect seniors who worry about money matters, have minimal contact with others, or for those who suffer serious medical conditions. Emotional health depends largely on happiness, which is influenced by increased socialization and less isolation. Encourage seniors to join clubs, volunteer, or dine together. Daily activities give a sense of purpose, a feeling of value and create happier states of mindwhich is key in potentially avoiding the effects of stress, anxiety and depression. The primary goal of seniors is to maintain independent lives in their own homes. It is essential for seniors to understand that in order to achieve this goal they must learn how to adapt to some of these changes by pursuing healthy lifestyles that can, in turn, make independence possible well into their golden years. Comfort Keepers is a leader in in-home senior care to promote independent living. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, incidental transportation, laundry, recreational activities, personal care and technology products. 021314 18 HOLES W/CART PER PERSONCHAMPIONSHIP PAR 71 PROSHOT GPS YARDAGECOUNTRY CLUB DR., LARGO2.5 Miles W. of U.S. 19 off 686581-3333Book Tee Times Online www.eastbaygolfclub.com031314 Expires 3/31/14 MARCHGOLFSPECIAL $40Before 11:30am$35After 11:30am$28After 1:30pmEVERYDAY Tee Times 727-584-6497$$ SAVE $$ $18Walk $24Ride$13Walk $19RideEVERYDAY!After 1:30pm Anytime Sat. & Sun.MARCH RATES0313141200 8th Ave. S.W., Largo WINTER TEN PLAY$150 Walk $200 Ride 18 Hole ExecCourse Par 55Largos Best Kept Secret.

CarFit, a national education program, was created by AARP, AAA and the American Occupational Therapy Association. These organizations partnered to help older drivers stay safe on the road. As people age, physical changes in vision, flexibility and strength may make them less comfortable in a car. Aging issues may impact a persons ability to control a vehicle. Simple solutions such as learning about a cars safety features or adaptive devices may help people continue to stay safe on the road. Trained volunteers will use a checklist of items related to vehicle comfort and safety. The team may make recommendations, but they wont make any changes to the car. Were concerned about the safety of our seniors who still drive, said Karen McFarlin in a press release. McFarlin is executive director of Pinecrest Place. When we heard about CarFit, we thought it would be a great way to help keep seniors as independent as possible, while staying safe on the road.

INSTALLED FREE! 031314 Greenlight Pinellas forums plannedSEMINOLE Pinellas County citizens will go to the polls Nov. 4 to vote on a proposed 1-cent sales tax increase to improve public transportation facilities in the county. To help them understand the pros and cons of the referendum, St. Petersburg College will present the first of a series of free public forums on the issue on April 3. The program, titled Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Digital Auditorium of the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N. It is sponsored by the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Tampa Bay Times is the media sponsor. Advance reservations are requested. The referendum approved last fall by the Pinellas County Commission, would fund improvements in bus service provided by the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and eventually a 24-mile light-rail line serving high-employment sectors between downtown St. Petersburg and downtown Clearwater. While raising the sales tax from seven to eight cents per dollar, the referendum would eliminate the current .75-mill property tax dedicated to transportation. The forum will open with pro-con presentations on the proposal by advocates for and against passage. Speaking for the amendment will be Don Ewing, chairman of Greenlight Pinellas. Speaking against will be Barbara Haselden, president of St. Pete 912, a chapter of the Tea Party, and a leader of No Tax for Tracks, an advocacy group that opposes passage of the penny tax hike for transit. The final portion of the program will be devoted to answering questions from the audience. Moderating the debate will be Dennis Hinebaugh, interim director of the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida. The proposed tax increase, if approved by more than 50 percent of Pinellas voters, would authorize a 1-cent sales tax increase for 30 years, which would raise $120 million a year. The tax hike would be partially offset by eliminating the current .75-mill property tax for transit that brings in $32 million. For that revenue stream, PSTA promises a 65 percent increase in bus service, a Bus Rapid Transit line, that is, dedicated bus lanes, on major corridors; and, eventually, a 24-mile light rail line that would roughly follow the I-275 corridor north to the Gateway area, then head west along Ulmerton/Roosevelt Road. The SPC Policy Institute plans to offer at least two more informational forums on the transit tax proposal. One in mid-summer will be held in the Midtown area, and another in September will be held in Clearwater.

PETERSBURG Standup Librarian Meredith Myers latest gig as spokesperson for this weekends 33rd annual Florida Antiquarian Book Fair made perfect sense. The former celebrity publicist has a knack for promotions and fundraising, and her love of reading is unparalleled after all, what other comedian has built their stand-up career around books? The Boca Ciega High School grads eclectic career led her to comedy in 2002. Up until that point, she worked in radio and catering management, and was part of the team when Tropicana Field first opened. Ive done so many things, its crazy, Myers said. Then she decided to head to New York in 2000 to realize her lifelong dream of becoming a celebrity publicist. She started out representing consumer goods, and sports teams and figures, and worked her way up to musicians and actors. I was a publicist for Whitney Houston during her whole crack is whack interview, Myers said. I said to my boss, I dont think this is a good idea. I think she still has a drug problem. But she didnt listen to me. Other artists she worked with included Diana Krall, Billy Gilman, and Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner, and she also worked on the movie X-Men 2. She started doing stand-up in 2002, using her life as a publicist to the stars as material. I was doing standup on the side in addition to my PR career, she said. I thought it was a good way to get things off your chest without getting fired for them. In 2003, she wrote an off-off-Broadway show, Like a Publicist. I always idolized Madonna, she said. It wasnt just about being funny, she added. I wanted to send a message, showing the machine behind how people got famous. She eventually came back to Florida, and her mother suggested she go to school to become a librarian. I just always loved reading, Myers said. Ive always been a writer and Ive always loved stories. She applied for the University of South Floridas masters program in library science and began taking courses online. Not long after, in 2010, while still enrolled, she moved to Los Angeles, where she continued to do stand-up. She also got involved with fundraising for and promotion of the West Hollywood Library, and performed at several events leading up to its construction. It was one of the greatest joys of my life, she said. Myers returned to St. Petersburg again in 2012. Since then, shes been focusing on her stand-up, encouraging literacy with her literary comedy shows, and, of course, promoting the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair. Visit www.standuplibrarian.com.

Pet Photo Contest Sponsored byLargo Feed210 West Bay Dr, Largo, FL 727-581-8743 & Park Feed5775 Park Blvd. Pinellas Park 727-546-7503Pets of the weekThis is a comment that we frequently hear. What exactly does just getting old really mean? Does it mean that the ailments of older pets shouldnt be a concern? We hope not! Pets are unable to communicate that they are hurting and will instinctively hide their pain as a survival mechanism to prevent other predators from viewing them as weak or vulnerable. A behavior thats protective in the wild can be problematic in the home, making it difficult for owners to know when a pet is in pain. For years, people mistakenly assumed that because pets didnt show pain, they didnt feel pain. Now we know that simply isnt true. Their nervous systems are relatively similar to that of humans, so it stands to reason that what is painful for people is probably painful for pets. Veterinarians are super sleuths! They can tell if a pet is hurting by putting together a few clues. For example, an examination may show that the hind leg muscles of a dog have become atrophied (shrunken) and that he is flat-footed in the front. This indicates that he is shifting the majority of his weight from his back legs to his front legs, which then cause his carpi (wrists) to hyperextend. Even though he may not be whining or crying out, he is shifting the weight because his back legs are painful. In this case, the most likely diagnosis would be arthritis. Those clues may be difficult for a pet owner to assess, but what about the following? Does your older pet get up slower from a resting position? Is he unable to jump like he used to? Does he limp after exercise? Does he not want to walk as far or sleep more than usual? Any one of these signs could point to arthritis. Luckily, there are many treatment options now available for dogs and cats suffering from arthritis. Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs): Rimadyl, Metacam, Deramaxx. These reduce inflammation and provides pain relief. Supplements: Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These support the structure and function of joints. Other Pain Medications: Tramadol, Gabapentin. These should be used in conjunction with NSAIDs for additional pain relief. Therapy: Laser, acupuncture, massage, physical therapy. These preserve the mobility, strength and use of joints; produces endorphins. Arthritis is just one of the many conditions that we share with our pet companions. Other conditions include diabetes, Cushings, Addisons, cancer, pancreatitis, urinary tract infections, bladder and kidney stones, allergies to environmental allergens, dental infections with pain, tumors, arthritis, trauma, deafness, blindness, ear and skin infections, corneal ulcers, glaucoma, and the list goes on and on. What other clues should you be on the lookout for? Drinking and/or urinating more than normal (accidents in the house) Coughing Exercise intolerance (gets tired quickly after walking or exercise) Vomiting and/or diarrhea Difficulty chewing Tumors (lumps/bumps) WeightlLoss (always significant if it is not intended especially in cats) Dental disease can be a major contributing factor of weight loss in elderly pets. Many of these pets wont show any evidence that their mouth is painful because they compensate by chewing on the other side. In fact, after thorough dental procedures to resolve the pain and infection have been performed, many owners often report the emergence of a different pet. They just hadnt realized how much their pet had been hurting. As with humans, our elderly companion pets need and deserve more care and comfort in their golden years. We have so much more to offer themand them to us!Kim Donovan, D.V.M., is an associate veterinarian and medical director at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 16 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine.

14A Viewpoints Leader, March 13, 2014Former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment right Wednesday not to incriminate herself when she testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the IRS targeting of tea party groups. Oddly, the news media and Democratic leaders dont think its a big deal when a federal official Lerner was the head of the unit that deals with tax-exempt organizations when she first invoked the Fifth last May wont answer questions about her actions as a federal official, but they are in a huff because the committees chairman, Darrell Issa, abruptly called an end to the hearing and shut off the microphone. Ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings said he wanted to ask a procedural question. Then, as Cummings instead engaged in a rant in defense of Lerner, Issa again shut off the mic. Within a minute, it was back on, and Cummings continued to rail against what he sees as a one-sided investigation. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi later tweeted that Issas decision to silence a fellow Member of Congress was outrageous and disrespectful. The Washington Posts Dana Milbank denounced Issa for falling below todays low standard of civility in Congress. Issa exhibited shoddy manners. Worse, he lacked the discipline to not be baited by the crafty Cummings. Thus, Issa handed the left an excuse to make him the issue when the Internal Revenue Services practice of going after the tea party cries out for public scrutiny. Lerners refusal to answer questions, though it is the exercise of a constitutional right, should make all House members squirm. Just what was Lerner doing on the taxpayer dime that she doesnt want to share? Lerners silence is especially unsettling given that her attorney William Taylor III told reporters that she had given a full interview to the Department of Justice with no grant of immunity. Lerners lawyers, he said, have confidence that prosecutors, unlike Issa, are open-minded. The thing is that also unlike Issa, the Department of Justice is in a position to prosecute people. It does strike me as a little odd, Rutgers law professor George Thomas III told The Wall Street Journal. One explanation is the one given by her lawyer. The other, darker explanation is that she and her lawyer think the DOJ is not interested in a serious investigation of the IRS treatment of these tax-exempt groups. Could it be that Lerners lawyers do not fear the often-terrifying Justice Department precisely because President Barack Obama already signaled there is no cause for concern because the IRS story is a phony scandal? Similarly, the president signaled his disdain for conservative nonprofits during the 2010 and 2012 election seasons. Lo and behold, the IRS started to put conservative tax-exempt organizations on the slow track and under a microscope. Last year, Lerner admitted that after the IRS saw an uptick in applications for social welfare organizations in 2010, staff began screening for groups that used terms such as Tea Party and Patriots. She even apologized. That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, insensitive and inappropriate. Thats not how we go about selecting cases for further review, Lerner said. She also claimed that IRS staffers did not target tea party patriot types because of any political bias. They did it because they were working together. This was a streamlined way for them to refer to the cases. That is, it was convenient. I do not believe that claim. I dont know many liberals who actually believe it, either. I do believe that if the Bush administrations IRS had targeted social welfare groups that used terms such as anti-war and torture, the left would have wanted to investigate. They would have wanted to know whether the IRS policy had come from the White House. And they wouldnt have given a pass to officials who took the Fifth. Milbank is put out that Issa forced Lerner to invoke her right against self-incrimination no fewer than 10 times. Apparently, it would be the gentlemanly thing for Issa to allow Lerner to maintain a version of events that defies credulity without answering to the American public. Ignorance is bliss.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. I dreamed recently that Arizona had adopted some draconian laws at the same time I was contemplating a trip to the state. In my dream, wanting to learn more about those laws and other issues, I called the Arizona Office of Tourism and spoke to the minister of truth. Hi, Tom here. Im thinking about visiting Arizona, driving from Florida. Do I need a passport? Not if you are an American citizen. But keep it handy. I understand that Phoenix is considered to be one of the most polluted cities in the United States. Im concerned that Ill get sick if I stay there for too long. Youll get used to it. If not, there are plenty of places where you can buy drugs, as long as youre not gay. Minister, I read that a few years ago Mesa was ranked one of the most redneck cities in America. On the basis of what? Percent of the population that didnt complete high school, the number of Walmarts, taxidermists and local gun stores, I said. Keep that to yourself, unless you want to get shot. Mums the word, sir. The ACLU and others have tangled with the state over concerns about rampant racial profiling stemming from the states anti-immigrant laws. Even Mississippi shied away from adopting such legislation. Used to like Mississippi, before the instigators made movies like O Brother Where Art Thou? and The Help. What did you think of Mississippi Burning and Ghosts of Mississippi? I asked. Lets move on. The minister was getting edgy. Im appalled that Arizona has a reputation for pushing conservative, if not unconstitutional, measures that affect quality of life and personal liberties. Does not John McCain, a voice of reason, have clout any more? Johns OK, but hes no Barry. Goldwater? No, Manilow. Who do you think Im talking about? the minister said. What do you say about remarks made by critics that Arizona is on its way to becoming a police state? Do you think the continued backlash will hurt tourism and the states economy and discourage companies from relocating to Arizona? Of course not, the minister said. All we have to do at the tourism bureau is continue to get the word out about our great scenic beauty the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, our history, our wildlife. Elks, bobcats, bears, mountain lions and rattlesnakes. They all continue to thrive, just as our elected officials will survive the continued assault on their reputations. Maybe youre right. Rattlesnakes dont commit suicide. You sound like an instigator. We have much to be proud of. We have low taxes and control our government spending and But about a year ago, I said, interrupting him, reports said that Arizona was tied with Alabama with having the sixth worst poverty rate in the nation. Pick, pick, pick. Listen, Arizona is a great place to visit and a great place to live and work. We are God-fearing people and proud of our heritage. In my dream, I thought about what Arizonas minister of truth had to say. I really wanted to see Arizona, but I was wrestling with my conscience. Do I want to visit a state that through the acts of its government repeatedly treads on human rights, freedom and dignity? Since my final destination was southern California, I decided to visit Arizona; its kind of hard to drive around it. Traveling through Arizonas desert, I had a flat tire, and I decided to pull off the side of the road to change it. The distinct sound of a rattle behind me warned me that I was not welcomed there. Then I woke up and realized I was only dreaming. I recalled that the governor had recently vetoed legislation that would allow businesses to discriminate based on religious grounds. Some sanity finally prevailed in a land of rattlesnakes. Whether I will go to Arizona in the next few years remains to be seen. Ill sleep on it some more.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@ TBNweekly.comIm always searching for better ways to live my life, or just to get through the average day. Ive flirted with a number of philosophies, such as Presbyterianism, hedonism, alcoholism, Buddhism, marriage, Amway, Course in Miracles and weight-lifting. They all have their good and bad points. One view of life that seems to make sense to me is stoicism. This school of thought was founded in Athens in the third century B.C. It later spread to Rome, and gradually came to be the favorite philosophy of educated Romans. Unfortunately, the emperor Justinian I put an end to stoicism and all other religions except Christianity in 529 A.D. This paved the way for the Spanish Inquisition, in which many non-Christians were burned at the stake. This persecution, in turn, led to John Lennons thoughtful ballad, Imagine, which pictured a world completely free of any and all religions. Fat chance for that. Today I wont burden you with the fine points of stoicism, because to understand them youd have to become a full-fledged stoic, which would violate the due process sections of the Constitution. But a few principles of stoicism are worth noting. One of them is that we should strive for self-control and fortitude as a means of defeating destructive emotions such as envy, fear, anger and jealousy. You will not find stoics appearing on the Dr. Phil or Judge Judy TV shows, which specialize in presenting people who hate each others guts and blame God for whatever is wrong. One of the most-remembered stoics was the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. He ruled from 161 to 180 A.D. Historians tell us he was one of the better emperors, in that he did not commit random acts of fratricide, incest, or the torture of wartime prisoners, all of which sports were common among the Roman hierarchy. However, he did persecute Christians. Nobodys perfect. Marcus Aurelius wrote hundreds of thoughts about how to live. Heres one: It is in our power to have no opinion about a thing, and not to be disturbed in our soul, for things themselves have no natural power. Heres another: This is the chief thing: Be not perturbed, for all things are according to the nature of the universal; and in a little time you will be nobody and nowhere.... In trying to list persons who I believe might be a stoic, I immediately think of Bill Belichick, the head coach of the New England Patriots football team. Bill has become famous for his frequent response to sportswriters questions, especially inane ones such as, Coach, what is your estimate of the Patriots chance for a Super Bowl bid? Belichick patiently (and unemotionally) answers, Well, it is what it is. He then elaborates by pointing out the obvious, i.e., Who knows? Well do our best, and accept the results, whatever they are. Translated, It is what it is could also mean, All of life and the universe is out there, and nobody has much control over it. So lets move ahead calmly and not get our shorts in a twist over any of it. Does this mean stoics must be fatalistic non-responders to the problems of life? I dont think so. Marcus Aurelius spent the final years of his life, as emperor, handling all sorts of problems brought to him by his subjects for solution. He also successfully turned back attacks by Germanic invaders. But he stayed calm while doing so. I would guess that down through the ages stoics have tended to drive other people crazy, just by refusing to fly into a tizzy each time something goes wrong. Lets say a stoic named Hailey is driving along Ulmerton Road during rush hour. Another motorist cuts in front of Hailey just as his wife Marge is putting on fresh lipstick. Hailey hits his brakes, and Marge smears lipstick all over her cheek and earlobe. She curses the other driver and expects her husband to join her in her road rage. But, as a card-carrying stoic, he declines to do so. He stays cool and grateful that he didnt slam his Honda into the other guys car. His calmness turns his wife into a sputtering nut case. She accuses him of being a wimp and a wuss. Hailey replies, Im neither one. Im a stoic. His wife soon divorces Hailey on the grounds of emotional desertion. Another manifestation of stoicism is to simply maintain a stiff upper lip in the face of pain or adversity. I think we are surrounded by thousands of stoics who dont even realize they qualify as such. Many of them are known as grown-ups. Or tough cookies. Or just cool.

He is absolutely right and they should be banned to restricted areas such as out in Fort De Soto. Many times I have watched them at Pass-A-Grille as they come into the shore only to race back out into the gulf. Of greater concern is the speed at which they travel on the water, and it will only be a period of time until one speeds over an unsuspecting swimmer causing fatal injuries, and no doubt a lawsuit to the city of St. Pete or Treasure Island. Bob Henderson Kitchener, OntarioJust trying to cross the roadEditor: Motorists, I am not a crazy lady standing at an intersection, waving a bag. I am a senior, who is trying to cross the road and not get that rundown feeling. Also, I believe that I do have the right of way at intersections when the walk sign is lit.

The term bounty land signifies tracts of land that were given by governments for service in the military. Sometimes it was given as partial payment for service, and sometimes it was given to incentivize men to volunteer for service. Using land in such a way certainly does not originate with us. The practice dates back to colonial times and even before. If you had an ancestor who served in the military from 1776 to 1858, there is the possibility that he was involved with bounty lands. In this column we will focus on the American Revolutionary War period. Of course, when land was granted, there was some sort of paper trail created, and in that trail lies the genealogical value of bounty lands. Although bounty land warrants do not provide as much genealogically relevant family information as we might like, there is still value to be had. The information that awaits us can prove military service of an ancestor, and it can provide information on his heirs if they are the ones to ultimately claimed the land. It can locate a soldier as belonging to a particular unit, locate a veteran geographically after the conflict, and lead to the discovery of a land patent that describes the location of the land in detail. During the Revolutionary War, bounty land was awarded both by individual states and the federal government. The states were tasked to provide soldiers to serve in the federal army, called the Continental Line, and they used bounty land to encourage such enlistments and to reward such service. The federal government also gave bounty land for that same service. With the exception of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, veterans or their heirs could receive land from both levels of government; that is, they could double dip. The individual states could essentially do anything they wanted with their land, so some awarded lands to their citizens to compensate for other than Continental Line service. However, those awards were relatively few in comparison. An example is Connecticut, which awarded land to any of its citizens, soldier or not, who suffered property loss as a result of enemy action. It awarded that land in a special tract in what is now northeastern Ohio. It was given the unique name of Fire Lands, and you can still see highway signs today announcing entry to the Fire Lands. Whether or not a state awarded bounty land to its soldiers of the Continental Line really depended on what land the state had to give away. Remember that the definitions of state boundaries were much different during the revolutionary period than they are today. Virginia, for example, included the present state of Kentucky, and South Carolina included the present state of Tennessee. Some states had the advantage of having such trans-Appalachian territory at their disposal, and some did not. States that had land to give as bounties were Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. Of these Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina were states with no western lands, and so they awarded land completely within what we consider their current boundaries. Delaware, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont were states that had no available land to award at all. Maine was not a state at this time but instead was a district of Massachusetts, which used it for its bounty land location. Even so, Maine also had its own bounty land policy, and thus was the only non-state to award bounty land. Finding records for state bounty land can be challenging given the decentralized policy as indicated. A good general reference, however, is Red Book. Each state is represented in the volume and each has a special section dealing with military records. It is within that section that specific pointers will be given as to where state bounty land records may be found today. It also pays to search for the websites of historical societies in the appropriate states to see if they have published any extracts from bounty land records from their state archives. Cyndis List (www.cyndislist.com) is an online genealogy site index that can reveal websites dealing with this topic. A particularly good resource is the book Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants Awarded by State Governments by Bockstruck. It details bounty land policies in each state and points to record locations and references. You can find that book in the genealogy collection at the Largo Public Library. By the early 1800s, most of the states had ceded their unused western lands to the federal government, and it is in part from those holdings that federal-level bounty lands were selected. Primarily they were in reserves in what are now Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. Finding federal level bounty land records is a bit more straightforward than finding state records: the National Archives is the central repository for all such records. There are two places within the Archives that you will find them. There is a file of bounty land applications that you can look at, but if the veteran applied for a pension as well as bounty land, his bounty land records will be included in his pension application file. Pension application files can be ordered from the National Archives, and can be found digitized online at Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, and Heritage Quest. Both Ancestry and Heritage Quest can normally be accessed through your public library. If there is no pension application file for your ancestor, then you need to order the bounty land documents from the National Archives. If your ancestor actually took possession of bounty land, a document called a land patent recorded the transfer of ownership from the government to the individual. In the case of federal land, those documents have been digitized and are presented online at the Bureau of Land Management website (www.glorecords.blm.gov/). These are only single documents, however, and the files at the National Archives will probably contain several pieces of paper. The Largo Public Library also has some print references that can be helpful. There are four volumes of the Federal Land Series by Smith, Military Bounty Land 1776-1855 by Rose, and Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files that may prove helpful. The Pinellas Genealogy Society has a class at the Largo Public Library that covers military records in general, and another that covers bounty land specifically. You can find their class list at www.flpgs.org/classes.asp. It is updated frequently, so keep checking.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

It can cause us to lose sleep, not think straight and even get physically sick. I know this because one of my daughters recently had what I would consider pretty bad anxiety issues. Her anxiety was related to school and all the tests students have to take these days. You have to realize this is a kid who loves school and gets all As, but something was stressing her out. She actually got physically sick. For almost a month, she would get nauseous before going to school. There wasnt anything I could do that would make it better. I went over our daily routine and evaluated if there were any big changes in our lifestyle that would cause this. Everything seemed pretty routine and things at school were fine, but for some reason her anxiety was building. We thought at first it was maybe a milk allergy that she developed. But I stopped giving her milk for breakfast and she was still getting sick. As a parent, seeing my daughter like this made me sad. She would tell me, Mom, I dont want to be like this, but I cant help it. The things she worried about were things like taking a test, not knowing if she did her homework right, not knowing if her teacher was going to be at class or if there was going to be a substitute. All of these things stressed her out and gave her anxiety. The fear of the unknown was what she was afraid of. Since then, I have found out that a lot of kids have anxiety issues like hers. I talked to fellow classmates moms and even to some of my neighbors and found that she wasnt the only one going through this. Not all of the other kids had it to the point of getting sick, but they had other issues they were dealing with from the anxiety. Some of them were acting out on their siblings and others were just sad, not wanting to do anything. I was fortunate that I have a friend who does counseling and she helped me get to the bottom of this anxiety problem with my daughter. My friend said her daughter had gone through this before and that there were some things I could do to help her overcome this anxiety. One of the exercises we did was naming her anxiety the Fear Monster. We had her draw this Fear Monster on a piece of paper really big and on the bottom of the paper draw a picture of herself small. We had her write all the things the Fear Monster would say to her. After she drew that picture, on another piece of paper we had her draw herself big and the fear monster small. We looked at those fears and my daughter realized that they were just lies. The things she was worried about, like failing a test, was a lie, because she never failed a test. She was worried about people saying mean things to her, but no one ever said mean things to her. She was worried about her teacher not being there and having a mean substitute, but she had never had a mean substitute. She figured out that she was worrying about things that she didnt need to worry about. We did other techniques that included visualizing what she was afraid of and overcoming it by being brave and conquering her fear. I heard a statistic that 90 percent of the things we worry about dont ever end up happening anyway, so why worry? Most of the time, worrying about something cant change the outcome. I know we all go through this at some point in our life. I know I worried in the past. I am glad that my daughter is realizing how to deal with fear and anxiety at a young age. She is doing great now and the Fear Monster has been put to sleep.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The association works to promote peace through Interfaith conversations; diffuse suspicion or antagonism towards religions; increase mutual trust, respect, and civility; encourage relationships of understanding and empathy among all people. The evening at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was wonderful, said Sharon Cook in a press release. Cook is the secretary and event planner for the association. The feeling of love and acceptance between all attending was palpable. The members of this faith were very welcoming and provided a great deal of information about their churchs beliefs and values. Many members of the association were appreciative of the event because it corrected misinformation they had heard about Mormons. This is one of the main reasons the St. Petersburg Interfaith Association sponsors events similar to this one to correct misunderstandings and to eliminate mistrust so that we can all dwell together in harmony and mutual respect, Cook said.Seminole First Baptist ChurchSEMINOLE The annual yard sale is set for Saturday, March 15, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Seminole First Baptist Church, 11000 Johnson Blvd. All proceeds will go to support the churchs youth mission trips this summer in Georgia and Florida.

CALENDAR, from page 3AFull moon should increase activityThis weeks full moon tides will be the biggest factor in hopefully spurring on a good bite both inshore and offshore. Most days last week had a real good look to them, temperatures were warm, and winds were moderate for the most part. But the one thing that was missing for much of the day was significant tidal movement. When you look at a daily tide chart and its showing a high tide of 1.5 feet at 10 a.m. and a low tide of 1.0 feet at 2 p.m., thats not going to translate into good fishing for redfish and trout no matter how pretty a day it is. In fact when the tide is moving that slow the only thing that might help you out is the wind. Wind will push water in when its blowing out of the south and will pull water out when its out of the north. Looking back two weeks when we had the good new moon tides we also had some pretty good fishing and with some big tides on tap for the first part of the week, hopefully history will repeat itself. Afternoon high tides should produce good catches of redfish as they make their way with the tide from the outer edges of the flats up to the mangrove shorelines and the small oyster mounds that collect on the points. On a high tide move from point to point casting soft plastic jigs or live shrimp under a cork. With inshore water temperatures hanging around 65 degrees, speckled trout should be ready to spawn or at least be in a pre-spawn situation on this full moon. Afternoon high outgoing tides have been the better tides for targeting the big fish. Targeting spoil island drop-offs with either a freelined select shrimp, pilchards or a soft-plastic jig bounced along the bottom should let you know pretty quickly if theres a school of trout on the Island. Once a school is located a limit of fish can come in pretty short order. Release the big females so that they can make more trout and keep only the smaller males. Spanish mackerel, kingfish and cobia will be making their way along our beaches starting any day now. With an easterly wind flow in place, look for this weekend to present some good opportunities for targeting these seasonal visitors. Those willing to slow troll live shad, ladyfish or mullet around near-shore bird activity should get bit.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

These two commercially successful hits represent only a fraction of this singer-songwriter folk-rock musicians total body of work. Stewart will give audiences a taste of his musicianship Saturday, March 22, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $29. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Guitarist Dave Nachmanoff and bassist Mike Lindauer will accompany Stewart. Like the fine wines that are his hobby, Stewarts gifts as a singer and songwriter have matured and ripened over the course of his musical career, stretching from the early s to the present. He may be best known for the 1976 album Year of the Cat, which spawned two Top 20 hits, the title song and On the Border. Not one to rest on his laurels, Stewart is nearing the 20-album mark, and remains a distinctively literate and vivid storyteller, time traveling and teleporting himself and his listeners from World War I battlefields to s bedrooms, from ships to airplanes to ice floes, from the specific to the mysterious.BackgroundAccording to a biography provided by Skyline Music, Al Stewart was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1945. He was still very young when his family relocated to Bournemouth, a seaside town in the South of England. As it turned out, it was in Bournemouth that Stewart purchased his first guitar in the 1960s. Stewart bought that particular instrument from Andy Summers, who would go on to become the lead guitarist of The Police. Robert Fripp, who later formed the prog-rock band King Crimson, taught Stewart his first guitar licks. By age 16, Stewart was playing guitar in a variety of local bands. In 1963 The Beatles were breaking out in England, Stewart said in the liner notes to Greatest Hits, a collection issued by Rhino Records in 2004. I wanted to be Al Beatle. Along came the Rolling Stones and I wanted to be Keith Richards. Then Stewart heard Bob Dylans original songs. His reaction must have resembled a musical epiphany because StewartTime PassagesFolk-rock icon Al Stewart to perform at Clearwaters Capitol Theatre Photo courtesy of SKYLINE MUSICAl Stewart performs March 22 at the Capitol Theatre.completely shifted his focus from instrumentalist to lyricist and vocalist. In 1965, Stewart moved to London where he got a gig as emcee at the Les Cousins, a wellknown folk club. There, he met emerging artists such as Paul Simon, Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch and Cat Stevens. He soon started writing and performing his own songs, first at Les Cousins and later at other folk clubs and colleges across England. He became associated with a number of folk-oriented groups such as the Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention and The Pentangle. In 1967, Stewart released his debut album, Bedsitter Images. The album showcased the folkrock musicians knack for observational storytelling. Most tracks utilized a full orchestra and featured orchestration by Irish composer and conductor Alexander Faris. The follow-up album, 1969s Love Chronicles, featured a number of prominent supporting musicians such as Jimmy Page (of Led Zeppelin) and four members of Fairport Convention. Over the next few years, Stewart would record and release two more albums Zero She Flies in 1970 and Orange in 1972 written autobiographical mode. Then, in 1973, his focus abruptly shifted. On the album Past, Present & Future, the singer-songwriter adjusted his lyrical gaze outward, contemplating history, literature and current events. Anchored by historical themes, each song represents a different decade of the 20th century.

Tapping into the significance of the car and the open road in American car culture and the freedom and individualism with which they both provide, the film is a story of honor, friendship and loyalty and the testosterone-fueled journey of one man looking for revenge and, ultimately, redemption. For Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), who runs his familys auto shop and races the underground street circuit with his buddies on weekends, life is good. But his whole world is turned upside down when he is sent to prison for a crime he didnt commit. In prison, he spends the next two years thinking about one thing: vengeance. While questioning the morals to which he has always adhered, he is nevertheless determined to bring down his enemies no matter what the cost. Based on the eponymous car-racing video-game franchise, Need for Speed captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting while bringing a level of intensity and authenticity to the action on-screen.Tyler Perrys The Single Moms ClubGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Tyler Perry, Nia Long, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Amy Smart, Zulay Henao, Cocoa Brown, Ryan Eggold, William Levy, Terry Crews and Eddie Cibrian Director: Tyler Perry Rated: PG-13 In Tyler Perrys The Single Moms Club, when five struggling single moms put aside their differences to form a support group, they find inspiration and laughter in their new sisterhood, and help each other overcome the obstacles that stand in their way.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The Art of the StealGenre: Comedy and crime Cast: Kurt Russell, Jay Baruchel, Katheryn Winnick, Chris Diamantopolulos, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones, Terence Stamp and Matt Dillon Director: Jonathan Sobol Rated: R Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one final lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon). Reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the successful heist leads to another far riskier plan devised by Nicky. They fail to realize each others separate agendas when their plan goes awry in this con movie about honor, revenge and the bonds of brotherhood.Better Living Through ChemistryGenre: Dark comedy Cast: Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Norbert Leo Butz, Ben Schwartz, Ken Howard, Jen Harris, Peter Jacobson, Harrison Holzer, Ray Liotta and Jane Fonda Director: Geoff Moore and David Posamentier Not rated A small town pharmacists uneventful life is turned inside out when a chance encounter with a lonely trophy wife turns into a walk on the wild side in the murderously funny dark comedy, Better Living Through Chemistry. Doug Varney (Sam Rockwell) is the model of suburban respectability until the night he delivers a prescription to the home of Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde). Gorgeous, seductive and multiply addicted, Elizabeth eagerly introduces Doug to extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedPaul, Poots, Keaton star in action film Need for Speed room behavior and the illicit pleasures of the pharmacopeia he has access to in his store. Disregarded for years by everyone from his domineering wife Kara (Michelle Monaghan) and troubled son Ethan (Harrison Holzer), to the goldbricking employees at the drugstore he bought from his insufferable father-in-law (Ken Howard), Doug surprises himself by embarking on an exhilarating drug-and-alcohol fueled affair with the most glamorous woman he has ever met. But his extracurricular activities quickly send his life spinning out of control when a routine DEA audit reveals serious discrepancies in his inventory. Convinced hes about to lose everything, Doug hatches an illconsidered scheme with Elizabeth that will allow them to have it all at an almost unthinkable price. EnemyGenre: Psychosexual thriller Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Melanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini Director: Denis Villeneuve Rated: R Jake Gyllenhaal reteams with director Denis Villeneuve in this sexy and hypnotically surreal psychological thriller that breathes new life into the doppelganger tradition. Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal) is a glum, disheveled history professor, who seems disinterested even in his beautiful girlfriend, Mary (Laurent). Watching a movie on the recommendation of a colleague, Adam spots his double, a bit-part actor named Anthony Clair, and decides to track him down. The identical men meet and their lives become bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined. Gyllenhaal is transfixing as both Adam and Anthony, provoking empathy as well as disapproval while embodying two distinct personas. With masterfully controlled attention to detail, Villeneuve takes us on an enigmatic and gripping journey through a world that is both familiar and strange and hard to shake off long after its final, unnerving image.Photo courtesy of DREAMWORKS PICTURESAbove, Dominic Cooper stars in Need for Speed, from DreamWorks Pictures.

The DenGenre: Thriller Cast: Melanie Papalia, Adam Shapiro, David Schlactenhaufen and Matt Riedy Director: Zach Donahue Nor rated After receiving a grant for her graduate thesis, Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia) logs onto a video-chat site known as The Den, on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video-chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam. While th police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth. Her life quickly spirals out of control as she gets pulled deeper into the darkest recesses of the Internet. And eventually, Elizabeth finds herself trapped in a twisted game in which she and her loved ones are targeted for the same grisly fate as the first victim.Le Week-EndGenre: Drama Cast: Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, Jeff Goldblum, Olly Alexander and Judith Davis Director: Roger Michel Rated: R Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nicks old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy drama, starring two of Britains national treasures, is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell.The Right Kind of WrongGenre: Romance Cast: Ryan Kwanten, Sara Canning, Will Sasso and Catherine OHara Director: Jeremiah Chechik Rated: R In this new romantic comedy, The Right Kind of Wrong, Leo Palamino is a failed-writer-turned-dishwasher made famous for his many flaws and shortcomings in a blog called Why You Suck, a huge Internet success written by his ex-wife. Then Leo meets Colette, the girl of his dreams on the day she is marrying the perfect man. And so, the ultimate underdog story begins as Leo, a fearless dreamer, risks all to show Colette and the whole wide world all that is right with a man famous for being wrong.Opening this weekend Photo by K.C.

Building on the appeal of this album, Stewart next released Modern trrTimes. This 1975 album made it onto the U.S. Top 40 charts and generated enough interest to justify a full-length U.S. tour.Year of the CatIn 1976, Al Stewart released Year of the Cat. The album generated two Top 20 hits Year of the Cat and On the Border on its way to becoming a million-selling record. The album was produced and engineered by Alan Parsons. In addition to the hit singles, the album also includes tracks such as Lord Grenville, about Sir Richard Grenville, an Elizabethan explorer. The album is widely considered to be Stewarts masterpiece. Its title track transcends the artists folk-rock background with its protracted instrumental sections. The full-length album version of the song incorporates an extended series of solos featuring cello, violin, piano, acoustic and distorted electric guitar, synthesizer and saxophone. The follow-up album, Time Passages, reunited Stewart and Parsons. The 1978 release mirrored the success of its predecessor and scored a Top 10 hit with the title track as well as a Top 30 single with Song on the Radio. Moving into the 1980s, Stewart continued to record and release albums, though new trends in music kept his work from receiving as much popular attention. In the early s, Stewart returned to his folk roots, setting off on a solo tour of the UK. He also released the album Famous Last Words, which utilized acoustic instrumentation and traditional folk and classical styles. He followed up with 1995s Between the Wars, an album featuring songs set in and themes focusing on the 1920s and 1930s. This album was Stewarts first collaboration with former Wings guitarist Laurence Juber. He partnered with Juber again in 2000 for the album Down in the Cellar, a concept album cleverly capitalizing on Stewarts knowledge of fine wines. More recently, Stewart released Uncorked, a live album recorded with Dave Nachmanoff. The 2009 album is described as take a trip through Stewarts musical back pages, both in terms of the musical catalogue and in terms of performance style, according to a press release from Skyline Music. Stewart reveals that during the height of his success in the late 1970s, he never felt all that comfortable on stage. I dont think I ever knew how to be in front of a band, said Stewart in the press release. I always felt I was loitering there while they were doing all the work. For Uncorked, Stewarts first live acoustic disc since 1992s Rhymes In Rooms, both the singer-songwriter and his collaborator made a decision not to replicate any of the tracks from that disc, even if it meant leaving off such standards as On the Border. Because Ive learned all of Als songs, we had an opportunity to revisit some of the tunes that hadnt been featured in more recent years, said Nachmanoff. In fact, Stewart and Nachmanoff are still apt to mix things up a bit while touring. I think at this point, we can actually do three or four full shows and never play the same songs twice. And while Al usually comes in to a gig with a set list in mind, often times, well just throw it out and go with the flow. If Uncorked is any indication of Stewarts newfound musical freedom, the Capitol Theatre concert will be well-received. The musicians guitar work is better now than it was back in the day, thanks to the Clearwater. Tickets start at $52. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Aaron Neville, whose recent PBS special showcases him as one of the worlds finest singers, is revisiting the music he grew up with and adding a few new spins along the way with his latest record My True Story. Nevilles first release for Blue Note Records is a collection of 12 classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style and co-produced by Blue Note president Don Was and Keith Richards. Neville explains that having internalized this music so deeply, he was able to show the musicians the genuine oldschool feel that these songs require. 24th annual Country In The Park, Saturday, March 15, 10 a.m., at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N., Pinellas Park.

PETERSBURG Breathe Carolina will hit the stage Saturday, March 15, at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave. Doors will open 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. Call 895-3045 or visit www.statetheatreconcerts.com. Breathe Carolina officially was established in 2006 but, in a sense, the bands beginnings go all the way back to the 1980s when two key founding members entered the world. Kyle Even and David Schmitt, born in 1985 and 1988 respectively, both decided to explore a career in music at an early age. They both spent their formative years playing in several Colorado-based music groups. Even, a vocalist, joined the band Rivendale while Schmitt, a guitarist, performed with As the Flood Waters Rose. The two bands frequently played together. When other members of the bands departed for college, Even and Schmitt partnered to form Breathe Carolina. The band recorded the extended play Gossip in 2007. The self-released EP was available exclusively on iTunes. They followed up with the album Its Classy, Not Classic in 2008, along with a supporting tour. Since first bursting on to the scene in 2008, Breathe Carolina has struck an inimitable alchemy between electronic music and rock, according to a biography provided by Fearless Records. Their distinctive sound keeps them ahead of the curve and facilitated the their platinum-selling 2011 breakout single Blackout from the album Hell Is What You Make It. The song reached 17 on the U.S. Mainstream Top 40 chart while the album peaked at 42 on the U.S. Billboard 200. The bands follow-up, Savages, sees the band once again treading boldly into fresh territory, delving heavier into the electronic dance world while staying true to their rock roots. The resulting combination sounds equally at home in a club, or lighting up packed fields at Warped Tour. The album, set for release in April, features guest vocals from pop artists Karmin and rock frontmen Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria and Tyler Carter of Issues. Schmitt has taken over both vocals and guitars. Joining Schmitt on tour will be Luis Bonet, programming and keyboards; Eric Armenta, drums; and Tommy Coops, guitar. Also on the bill will be Jonny Craig, Ghost Town and Divided By Friday.Breathe Carolina to perform at State Theatre March 15 Photo courtesy of FEARLESS RECORDSBreathe Carolina takes the stage March 15 at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg.Largo Thoroughly Modern Millie, with book by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan, music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Dick Scanlan; presented by Eight OClock Theatre, through March 16, at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo.

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. If the mess is any indication, its no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife.

Melissa Poletz and her partner Josh Lipp did just that and brought their two children to the event. Charlotte, 6, was busy running from one booth to another while her father tried to keep up. Jax, 9-months-old, was just enjoying himself riding around in the stroller. We live in Clearwater Beach, said Melissa. We just had to come over and see this, it is very good. Poletz said she was pleased with some of the things she was able to find from the vendors. They actually had childrens books for sale here, and you dont often find that at these fairs, she said. Im impressed with the variety of things that are available. This is our first time here but well definitely be back. Lindsay and Adam Sterry of Belleair Bluffs are people who do come every year. This is very cool, said Lindsay. We used to live in Indian Rocks Beach so it is fun to come back and enjoy this. Diana and Alex Chrapowicki of Holmes County, Ohio, were enjoying the stroll around the grounds. They got there by chance. We found out about this at the information center here in town, said Diana. This is like a collage; there are so many different things and different people. This is really nice. Each year Greenfest attracts more than 2,000 people and this year even more vendors were added. Organizer Christy Ward said last year there were 90 vendors; this year there were 95. One of the new vendors was Barrie West with her Beach Art by Barrie display. She hasnt seen a piece of beach-related memorabilia that she doesnt paint. I would describe my work as anything nautical or tropical, she said. I paint it all; everything here is hand-painted. West participates in shows nearly every weekend of the year. She likes Greenfest, she said, because as a resident of Seminole it was nice and close to home. A little farther from home was Gary McKenzie of Cadiz, Ky. He was enjoying inspecting Wests work. I especially like that big painted turtle, he said. West said shell decide whether to come back next year once she gets a chance to see just how good business was during the one day event. This years Greenfest was the 7th annual. The COTI Christian School, a Ministry of the Church of the Isles where the event was held, sponsors it. A celebration of green Photos by BRIAN GOFFVendor Barrie West shows off her wares to Gary McKenzie visiting from Kentucky at the 2014 Greenfest celebration.

Red Hat Tea Party By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO At 19, Cam Simon not only has big ambitions, but his own film premiering at Largo Cultural Center this weekend. The 25-minute film Drink is Simons tribute of respect to veterans and a message of hope to those struggling with alcoholism. The young director began writing the script with local actor Jessy Leros more than a year ago. In essence, Drink is about a Marine who comes home from war with PTSD and turns to alcoholism. But what its really about is its a spiritual journey to overcoming, finding a new way of living your life and becoming a new kind of man, Simon said. Drink will premiere Saturday, March 15, 8 p.m., at the Largo Cultural Center, 120 Central Park Drive. Tickets are $5, with proceeds benefiting the nonprofit veterans organization, Silver Star Families of America. Doors open at 7 p.m. Simon, who lives in Clearwater, has been shooting films since he was 14. As a skateboarder, he brought a camera to the skate park to capture his friends doing their best tricks. Those shots became two full-length videos featuring eight skateboarders, sold in local skate shops as well as internationally, Simon said. From there, Simons interests fell out of skateboarding and into telling stories with film. He worked on music videos for local musicians. For the last year and a half, hes worked with his mother at Citizens Commission on Human Rights Florida, helping produce commercial videos and social media campaigns. Hes studied directing under Tony Armer, cofounder of the St. Petersburg-based Sunscreen Film Festival. Simon met Leros at an acting class in Clearwater, which he was taking to help better understand the acting process as a director. After shooting a short film together in December 2012, the two decided to tackle a bigger film project with a higher production value. The first draft of what would be Drink took only about a week to write, but rewrites took another month.

TORRESLARGO A total of 753 pole signs within the city of Largo still need to be replaced with 8-foot monument signs in the next three years in order for businesses to avoid fines in 2017. Largo commissioners debated the feasibility of that order as the main topic of discussion March 13. They all agreed that the city needed to launch a better marketing campaign to let businesses know of the coming deadline. They disagreed about the merits of the requirement, designed to make Largos roadways look less tacky, as Mayor Pat Gerard put it. They even were divided as to how possible it would be for more than 700 businesses to make the switch. Its impossible. Theres no way thats going to happen, said Commissioner Jamie Robinson. In my opinion, its crazy. I just cant believe were doing this. Robinson later clarified that he wasnt against eventually doing away with pole signs within the city. Commissioner Curtis Holmes also was fine with requiring that businesses make the change when pole signs need to be replaced. Already, 76 monument signs have been built as new businesses have opened or redeveloped their property. But Holmes, who runs First Southeast Insurance out of an office condo on Belcher Road, is one of the business owners who will have to pay for a new sign. He and nine other businesses in the two-building complex will have to split the cost to replace their pole sign. To comply, its going to cost us $2,000 per owner, $20,000 total, he said. I think this should have been grandfathered in. If a sign is damaged, replace it. Storm hits it, replace it. But to tell these people that theyve got three more U.S. House passes flood insurance billYoung director premieres first film Drink in Largo Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESEverest University on East Bay Drive is one of 49 businesses that has converted its pole sign to a monument sign since Largo passed an ordinance in 2007 requiring all businesses to make the transition in 10 years.

About 200 women from five counties attended that day, enjoying a lunch, dancing and entertainment, said event planner Dawn Smolowitz. Another 170 were scheduled to attend a duplicate of the party on March 12. See SIGNS, page 5A By SUZETTE PORTERThe U.S. House of Representatives passed a flood insurance bill March 4 that could signal coming relief for property owners trying to deal with huge rate hikes. Governor Rick Scott called the action the right thing for Floridians. The Houses action on this flood insurance fix tonight is an important win in our fight to undo unfair flood insurance rate hikes that are hurting Florida families, Scott said in a press release after the vote. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said the House bill didnt do enough, but was a good first step. Although it doesnt go as far as the bill we passed in the Senate, its good the House has approved some curbs on flood insurance, Nelson said. For the sake of policyholders facing massive rate hikes, I hope we can get a final version sent to the president quickly. The U.S. Senate approved legislation proposed by Nelson Jan. 30, which would delay many of the flood insurance rate increases for four years, during which time FEMA would be required to study the affordability of the policies and re-evaluate the accuracy of new flood maps. The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, passed by the House, does not delay rate increases but repeals certain sections, according to an analysis from the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. It restores grandfathering and repeals the automatic increase in rates from the sale of a home or a lapsed policy. The legislation limits the annual rate increase to a maximum of 15 percent and proposes refunds for some policyholders who have already paid increased premiums. The House also increased See INSURANCE, page 6APhotos courtesy of CAM SIMONAt right, on the set of Drink, Director Cam Simon, right, speaks with cameraman Freddie Marshall.

County 5A Leader, March 13, 2014Pinellas votes for Jolly to serve in U.S. House of Representatives By SUZETTE PORTERMore than 39 percent of Pinellas Countys 477,635 registered voters participated in the March 11 special District 13 and 12 municipal elections, which is very good, according to Nancy Whitlock, Elections Administrator. Whitlock said Election Day was very smooth. We had no real issues that I know of. There were no lines, she said. Voting went at a steady pace throughout the day. One race of special interest was choosing a new U.S. Representative for District 13 to replace C.W. Bill Young, who died Oct. 18. Young served Pinellas in Congress for nearly 43 years. Municipalities conducting elections included Belleair Bluffs, Clearwater, Gulfport, Indian Shores, Kenneth City, Madeira Beach, Pinellas Park, Redington Shores, Safety Harbor, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach and Tarpon Springs. All municipalities are within Congressional District 13 except Tarpon Springs According to a fact sheet from the Elections Office, 477,635 registered voters were eligible to take part in the District 13 special election as well as 12 municipal elections. Of that number, 460,600 could vote in the District 13 election 170,565 Republicans (37 percent), 159,213 Democrats (34.6 percent), and 130,822 registered as minor party or no party affiliation (28.4 percent). Early voting ended Sunday evening with 5,520 ballots cast. As of close of business Monday, another 122,558 had voted by mail ballot, which was 60.9 percent of 201,369 distributed.Unofficial results District 13 special electionAfter nearly five months without representation in the U.S. House of Representatives, voters in Pinellas Countys District 13 selected Republican David Jolly to take the position left vacant when C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Young, a Republican, served District 13 for nearly 43 years. Jolly, 41, faced Democrat Alex Sink, 65, and Libertarian Lucas Overby, 27, in the March 11 special election. Write-in candidate Michael S. Levinson also qualified to run in the hotly contested election. Jolly will serve an eight-month term. Sink took an early lead with just over 48 percent of the vote, as unofficial results were posted at the Supervisor of Elections website soon after the polls closed at 7 p.m. But, Jolly quickly took over the lead with more than 48 percent and held on until all 225 precincts were counted. Overby chipped in with almost 5 percent, and the writein candidate received less than 1 percent. According to unofficial results, Jolly garnered 88,294 votes, 48.43 percent. Sink took in 84,877 votes, 46.56 percent. Overby received 8,799 votes, 4.83 percent and the write-in candidate received 325 votes, less than 1 percent. According to Elections Administrator Nancy Whitlock, counts from the provisional ballots still have to be added. The unofficial results also did not contain all mail ballots or 10-day overseas ballots. Official election results cannot be certified until votes from the 10day overseas ballots are added, and the earliest that can occur is the 10th day after the election.

While they were writing, Simons grandmother passed away, after a life-long struggle with alcoholism. Suddenly, the films main theme was more poignant. It was just more inspiration and motivation to get the film done, Simon said. The film is dedicated to her. Simon remembers watching the disease change his grandmother, even when he was too young to understand what was happening. I would see what the alcohol would do to her, how it just deteriorates somebody, he said. Simon wanted to highlight that process of deterioration on a Marine who thinks of himself as invincible. The main character in Drink, named Will, comes back from a tour in Iraq blaming himself for the death of Jason, his childhood friend. The movie kind of takes a turn into a spiritual journey of how Will uncovers what Jason was trying to tell him, Simon said. Will becomes a new man and redeems himself. He wanted to make a film that people with a variety of struggles could identify with. Tampa actor Aaron Quick Nelson said starring in the film with Leros was a really good experience and hit a personal chord. Nelson was a combat engineer with the Army Reserves and watched several military friends who were psychologically damaged trying to get their life back together. People dont want to pay attention to that. This film focuses a lot on that and what they go cast and crew, Armer and members of the nonprofit and representatives from Silver Star Families of America will be at the premiere to meet with attendees. To follow the films progress on Facebook, visit www.facebook.com/DrinkMovie2013. through, he said. He too has had the experience of watching relatives struggle with alcoholism. Having a film based on that is very inspiring, he said. Nelson, who recently began pursuing his acting career full-time, auditioned for the project after being told about Simons call for actors on Facebook. I read a synopsis of the project, and it really intrigued me, he said. Simon said the project, financed through the crowd-funding site indiegogo.com, has been a major learning experience for him. It was difficult to lead the six actors and a film crew of seven, especially when disagreements broke out. Drink was filmed in seven days, though postproduction took another eight months. Making the film as authentic to the military experience as possible was important to Simon. To that end, the cast and crew worked with a Special Forces veteran who is now a mixed martial arts trainer to make the fight scenes as realistic. Simons biggest compliment was a standing ovation after showing the trailer to a student veteran group at St. Petersburg College. It meant a lot to me that veterans themselves were interested in the film, he said. After the premiere, Simon is submitting Drink to as many film festivals as possible. He hopes to bring the actors the attention they deserve, he said. His goal is to work his way up with every film, bringing himself closer to winning a major film festival. Id like to see myself directing as a living, he said, adding that he understood the challenge. Making it in film is one of the toughest things ever.

TORRESDirector Cam Simon stands outside his home in Clearwater.years to comply or the citys going to get on them, thats not a very good way to do this thing. The smaller monument signs, which can be a maximum of 8 feet tall, will be harder to see from the road, he argued, dangerous even for the motorists trying to read them while traveling at the speed limit of Largos major roads. Complexes that are larger than 3 acres could have a larger sign, city planner Christine McLachlan clarified. Addressing Holmes point that gas stations trying to advertise gas prices were especially at a disadvantage, Gerard said that several new filling stations had opened since 2007 and complied by installing electronic monument signs. If Im going 40 miles per hour I cant see that pole sign either. And I cant remember the last time I went 40 miles per hour on Ulmerton Road, she said. Commissioner Robert Murray said that Largos roadways have undergone a unique transformation by reducing the pole signs. I would hate to do away with the ordinance in and of itself, he said, arguing instead that the city takes into account the economic downturn by delaying the deadline for compliance. The citys community development department does have an assistance program that gives $250 to businesses making the transition, but Gerard said she knew when it passed that that incentive was too measly to make a difference. Only three businesses have utilized those funds. I would like to see us if were serious about this put serious money into providing incentives $250 is not serious, she said. And I would be open, given the downturn, to extending the deadline and doing a very active marketing campaign. Commissioner Woody Brown said it would be unfair to the businesses who did purchase a new sign to change the ordinance too significantly. Gerard agreed. If you dont have a deadline, itll never happen, she said. Its not just going to happen by attrition (that would) take 40, 50 years. Commissioner Michael Smith said the ordinance flew in the face of the citys efforts to be business-friendly. In a few years, (theyre) going to be here with pitch forks and axes, after all of our heads. And I really dont want to be here for that, he said. Gerard said the ordinance was about maintaining a vision for the city. Its about having a backbone too, you know, and be willing to say this is what we want for our city, she said. We can continue to look tacky, but thats not what we want. Gerard said she did want to know how other cities went about similar transitions. The city of Clearwater provided a $5,000 grant per building owner or tenant, according to the citys past research. Staff promised to provide more research on that and other cities efforts. Holmes questioned how soon businesses annexing into the city after 2017 would have to replace existing pole signs and if new tenants could just change the face of an existing sign before the deadline. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin said the city hadnt established a policy for annexed signs after 2017 yet. She also clarified that currently, only if a property was redeveloped or abandoned for more than 90 days did the city require that the pole sign come down. Community development staff will be working with the marketing department to come up with a new advertising campaign, beyond informing businesses through their business receipts. The Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce also has helped the city get the word out to businesses. Robert Klute, assistant community development director, said before the meeting that educating businesses was key to the success of the transition. We dont wish to wait until the end of the amortization period. We want to be proactive with this, he said. Another work session will be scheduled to discuss more incentives and the citys ideas for a marketing campaign. David Jolly will represent Pinellas Countys District 13 in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Long-term relief comes from an annual surcharge of $25 for residential policyholders and $250 fee for commercial and secondary properties. The surcharge will go to the National Flood Insurance Program reserve fund. The House bill does not affect commercial properties, secondary homes or properties with severe losses. Rates for those properties will continue to increase by 25 percent a year. However, rate increases would no longer be triggered with the sale of the property. The Senate bill would enact a four-year delay and would temporarily restore grandfathering. It also would delay rate increases triggered by home sales and delay annual rate increases. It removes the cap for funding of an affordability study and provides short-term relief to premium increases. Members of the Conference Committee will meet to work out the differences before legislation is sent to the president for signing. Pinellas County has been described as ground zero due to the number of properties affected by sky-high flood insurance rate hikes due the affects from the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Horror stories of rate increases have been frequent for months. The real estate industry is reeling. Government officials are concerned that property values could plummet. Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 to try to stabilize the finances of NFIP, which has been in the red since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. INSURANCE, from page 1ASheriff reports continuing decline in crime By SUZETTE PORTERLARGO The crime rate in Pinellas County is going down, in alignment with a statewide trend of record low numbers. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri reported March 5 that the 2013 overall crime rate decreased by 5 percent. Part 1 crimes are down by 5.8 percent. Gualtieris statistics cover only the areas within the sheriffs service area unincorporated Pinellas and the municipalities of Belleair Beach, Belleair Bluffs, Belleair Shore, Dunedin, Indian Rocks Beach, Madeira Beach, North Redington Beach, Oldsmar, Redington Beach, Safety Harbor, Seminole, South Pasadena and St. Pete Beach. Gualtieri pointed out that 2013 is the fifth consecutive year that Part 1 crimes have gone down. Over the past five years, Part 1 crime is down 23.8 percent. Part 1 crimes are the most serious crimes, which according to the FBIs Uniform Crime Report are homicide, forcible sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. Gualtieri reported that in 2013 homicides went down 64.7 percent; forcible sex offenses, 9.72 percent; robbery, 12 percent; burglary, 10.4 percent; larceny, 4.6 percent; and motor vehicle theft, 8.95 percent. Aggravated assault was the only category with an increase up 9.23 percent, which was due to the number of victims not cases, the report said. The number of aggravated assault cases involving firearms also increased by 41 percent. Sixty-one cases were reported in 2012 and 86 in 2013. However, the number of Part 1 crimes involving firearms went down by nearly 24.5 percent. Seventeen homicides were investigated in 2012 one of the highest numbers in recent years. In 2013, the number of homicides went down to six one of the lowest in recent years. In his report, Gualtieri noted that arrests for Part 1 crimes also were increasing up by nearly 22 percent compared to 2012. Arrests for Part 1 and Part 2 crime were up by 9.65 percent. The closure rate for Part 1 crimes also went up by 12.48 percent. He also pointed out that the decrease in crime came at a time when budget cuts had forced a significant decrease in personnel. Over the past five years, PCSO has cut more than 600 positions, including 167 law enforcement deputies, he said. PCSO provides service to more than 50 percent of the total land area in Pinellas and provides primary law enforcement for more than 41 percent of the population. The numbers continue to head in the right direction and its a tribute to the day-to-day good work by all sheriffs office members who have worked tirelessly to achieve this significant and sustained crime reduction, Gualtieri said in a press release.Crime down throughout FloridaThe Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports that the states crime volume is down to a record low. The semi-annual Uniform Crime Report released in November showed that crime volume had dropped 5.2 percent compared to the first six months of 2012. Our communities are on a path to a 43 year crime low, which improves the quality of life for families and benefits all aspects of our communities, Gov. Rick Scott said during a Nov. 19 press conference. The mid-year report showed Graphics courtesy of PCSOTotal Part 1 crimes are down 23.83 percent from 2009 to 2013 in Pinellas County Sheriffs service area.that violent crime was down 3.5 percent statewide, including a 10.6 percent drop in murders, 2 percent drop in robberies and a 4.2 percent decrease in aggravated assault. Non-violent crime also decreased 5.5 percent. These numbers reflect historic lows, said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. Law enforcement is working hard to make Florida a safe place to live, work and play.

Contact me to get started. 022714SBLB 031314 031314 Fire station concerns addressed By WAYNE AYERSBELLEAIR BLUFFS Renewed discussions of a new fire station to be built on property across from the Belleair Bluffs City Hall has revived residents concerns about the facility. Mayor Chris Arbutine said at the March 10 City Commission workshop that residents are asking questions ranging from EMS response times to noise and traffic concerns, and what role the city will play in the operation of the fire department. There has been some criticism of the new station, Arbutine said. Some residents are jumping the gun and coming to conclusions without knowing what were doing. I want to relieve their fears. Arbutine said the city worked very hard to get out of the fire business and was not about to re-enter it. The new station, which would replace Largo fire station No. 43 on Indian Rocks Road, is being placed on the property across from City Hall because it is the best location to assure that current emergency response times can be maintained, he said. Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis, who was present at the meeting, backed Arbutines comments. Willis said the fire department did an analysis and found that moving the station from its present location up or down Indian Rocks Road takes it outside of the seven-and-a-half minute contracted EMS response time. We have a very narrow window of opportunity as to where to place the station, Willis said. This location is perfect, she said. This is where the station has to be, in order to meet the (desired) response times. If we want to do better than sevenand-a-half minutes, it has to be within this block or we cant reach you in 5-6 minutes. Arbutine said residents living near the station are concerned about station noise, from sirens and the fire engines pulling in and out. People living on Pinehurst Avenue behind the site of the proposed station want a concrete wall built to buffer the sounds, he said. That has been included in every discussion weve had on the station and will be a part of the plans, Arbutine said. Also, Arbutine said Public Works Director Robert David had determined the city can vacate a right of way and close off Bay Way Drive. That would provide the opportunity to move the station further away from the residences, he said. Arbutines contention that all affected residents were notified five years ago of the fire stations location was disputed by some. We were never informed in any form or shape about the station, said Wanda Rusinowski, who lives on Los Gatos Drive. Bay Way Drive resident David Cortright said after the meeting that he also was never informed about the stations coming. Everyone was informed, Arbutine contended. No residents were kept in a veil about the plans, he said. Arbutine also criticized proposed plans by the county to cut $7 million from the EMS budget and make changes to the system. The county commissioners dont know anything about EMS but are acting as if they are experts, Arbutine said. He said the county commission supports the PSTA (Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority) $83 million Greenlight Pinellas initiative for a rail transit route and expanded bus service, yet want to cut EMS. Its that type of inconsistency that I dont like, he said. Commissioner Joe Barkley, who is a PSTA board member, said the extra money for the transit initiative is coming from other sources and would have a minimal impact on most homeowners taxes. The Greenlight Pinellas program calls for a 1-cent sales-tax increase to replace the property tax that funds PSTA.Tax Collectors Office joins Donate LifeCLEARWATER Employees at the Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office are teaming up with Donate Life Florida in March to make Floridians aware of the life-saving role they can play by registering as an organ, tissue and eye donor. Tax Collector employees are participating in the annual Donate Life Challenge to promote awareness of Floridas organ donor registry. I am honored that my offices can be part of an effort like this that helps save lives said Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson. We have been involved in the organ donor effort since we began issuing driver licenses in 2001. Tax Collector employees help register potential organ donors by asking all driver license customers if they would like to join the registry. Last years Donate Life Challenge led to more than 85,000 new donor registrations throughout Florida. Organ transplantation let me walk both my daughters down the aisle in 2012, said double lung recipient Pete Schwob. I will forever be in their wedding pictures and know that they are in good hands with their great husbands all because someone said yes to organ donation! More than 3,700 Floridians currently await organ transplants, and more than 120,000 patients are on the nationwide list. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. Register as an organ donor: 1. On Donate Life Floridas website at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org 2. When renewing your driver license online at www.GoRenew.com 3. When obtaining a new or renewed driver license in an office 4. By calling Donate Life Florida at 1-877-35SHARE (1-877-357-4273) For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHealthy AgingA happy emotional outlook and sharp mental state are critical building blocks for overall good health in seniors. Physical health pales when a person suffers emotional distress and isolation, making them unable to enjoy life. In fact, emotional health and a sharp mind are critical for seniors when physical limitations prevail. Physical health can be maintained by exercising within your individual abilities, with your doctors consent. Exercise helps preserve muscle tone and bone density and can aid in balance and coordination. Daily exercise can be as simple as walking around the block or participating in a group exercise class at the local gym. Consuming a wellbalanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, and protein provides nutrients your body needs to function properly inside and out. Mental health is facilitated by challenging yourself every day. Challenges can include participating in new activities, playing games you never have before or merely extending your knowledge in one subject. Creativity is key in keeping your brain sharp and your senses focused. Emotional health becomes endangered as seniors face the loss of a spouse and other loved ones. Isolation can become prevalent due to physical limitations or the lack of desire to socialize. Anxiety and depression can affect seniors who worry about money matters, have minimal contact with others, or for those who suffer serious medical conditions. Emotional health depends largely on happiness, which is influenced by increased socialization and less isolation. Encourage seniors to join clubs, volunteer, or dine together. Daily activities give a sense of purpose, a feeling of value and create happier states of mindwhich is key in potentially avoiding the effects of stress, anxiety and depression. The primary goal of seniors is to maintain independent lives in their own homes. It is essential for seniors to understand that in order to achieve this goal they must learn how to adapt to some of these changes by pursuing healthy lifestyles that can, in turn, make independence possible well into their golden years. Comfort Keepers is a leader in in-home senior care to promote independent living. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, incidental transportation, laundry, recreational activities, personal care and technology products. 021314 18 HOLES W/CART PER PERSONCHAMPIONSHIP PAR 71 PROSHOT GPS YARDAGECOUNTRY CLUB DR., LARGO2.5 Miles W. of U.S. 19 off 686581-3333Book Tee Times Online www.eastbaygolfclub.com031314 Expires 3/31/14 MARCHGOLFSPECIAL $40Before 11:30am$35After 11:30am$28After 1:30pmEVERYDAY Tee Times 727-584-6497$$ SAVE $$ $18Walk $24Ride$13Walk $19RideEVERYDAY!After 1:30pm Anytime Sat. & Sun.MARCH RATES0313141200 8th Ave. S.W., Largo WINTER TEN PLAY$150 Walk $200 Ride 18 Hole ExecCourse Par 55Largos Best Kept Secret.

CarFit, a national education program, was created by AARP, AAA and the American Occupational Therapy Association. These organizations partnered to help older drivers stay safe on the road. As people age, physical changes in vision, flexibility and strength may make them less comfortable in a car. Aging issues may impact a persons ability to control a vehicle. Simple solutions such as learning about a cars safety features or adaptive devices may help people continue to stay safe on the road. Trained volunteers will use a checklist of items related to vehicle comfort and safety. The team may make recommendations, but they wont make any changes to the car. Were concerned about the safety of our seniors who still drive, said Karen McFarlin in a press release. McFarlin is executive director of Pinecrest Place. When we heard about CarFit, we thought it would be a great way to help keep seniors as independent as possible, while staying safe on the road.

INSTALLED FREE! 031314 Greenlight Pinellas forums plannedSEMINOLE Pinellas County citizens will go to the polls Nov. 4 to vote on a proposed 1-cent sales tax increase to improve public transportation facilities in the county. To help them understand the pros and cons of the referendum, St. Petersburg College will present the first of a series of free public forums on the issue on April 3. The program, titled Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Digital Auditorium of the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N. It is sponsored by the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Tampa Bay Times is the media sponsor. Advance reservations are requested. The referendum approved last fall by the Pinellas County Commission, would fund improvements in bus service provided by the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and eventually a 24-mile light-rail line serving high-employment sectors between downtown St. Petersburg and downtown Clearwater. While raising the sales tax from seven to eight cents per dollar, the referendum would eliminate the current .75-mill property tax dedicated to transportation. The forum will open with pro-con presentations on the proposal by advocates for and against passage. Speaking for the amendment will be Don Ewing, chairman of Greenlight Pinellas. Speaking against will be Barbara Haselden, president of St. Pete 912, a chapter of the Tea Party, and a leader of No Tax for Tracks, an advocacy group that opposes passage of the penny tax hike for transit. The final portion of the program will be devoted to answering questions from the audience. Moderating the debate will be Dennis Hinebaugh, interim director of the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida. The proposed tax increase, if approved by more than 50 percent of Pinellas voters, would authorize a 1-cent sales tax increase for 30 years, which would raise $120 million a year. The tax hike would be partially offset by eliminating the current .75-mill property tax for transit that brings in $32 million. For that revenue stream, PSTA promises a 65 percent increase in bus service, a Bus Rapid Transit line, that is, dedicated bus lanes, on major corridors; and, eventually, a 24-mile light rail line that would roughly follow the I-275 corridor north to the Gateway area, then head west along Ulmerton/Roosevelt Road. The SPC Policy Institute plans to offer at least two more informational forums on the transit tax proposal. One in mid-summer will be held in the Midtown area, and another in September will be held in Clearwater.

PETERSBURG Standup Librarian Meredith Myers latest gig as spokesperson for this weekends 33rd annual Florida Antiquarian Book Fair made perfect sense. The former celebrity publicist has a knack for promotions and fundraising, and her love of reading is unparalleled after all, what other comedian has built their stand-up career around books? The Boca Ciega High School grads eclectic career led her to comedy in 2002. Up until that point, she worked in radio and catering management, and was part of the team when Tropicana Field first opened. Ive done so many things, its crazy, Myers said. Then she decided to head to New York in 2000 to realize her lifelong dream of becoming a celebrity publicist. She started out representing consumer goods, and sports teams and figures, and worked her way up to musicians and actors. I was a publicist for Whitney Houston during her whole crack is whack interview, Myers said. I said to my boss, I dont think this is a good idea. I think she still has a drug problem. But she didnt listen to me. Other artists she worked with included Diana Krall, Billy Gilman, and Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner, and she also worked on the movie X-Men 2. She started doing stand-up in 2002, using her life as a publicist to the stars as material. I was doing standup on the side in addition to my PR career, she said. I thought it was a good way to get things off your chest without getting fired for them. In 2003, she wrote an off-off-Broadway show, Like a Publicist. I always idolized Madonna, she said. It wasnt just about being funny, she added. I wanted to send a message, showing the machine behind how people got famous. She eventually came back to Florida, and her mother suggested she go to school to become a librarian. I just always loved reading, Myers said. Ive always been a writer and Ive always loved stories. She applied for the University of South Floridas masters program in library science and began taking courses online. Not long after, in 2010, while still enrolled, she moved to Los Angeles, where she continued to do stand-up. She also got involved with fundraising for and promotion of the West Hollywood Library, and performed at several events leading up to its construction. It was one of the greatest joys of my life, she said. Myers returned to St. Petersburg again in 2012. Since then, shes been focusing on her stand-up, encouraging literacy with her literary comedy shows, and, of course, promoting the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair. Visit www.standuplibrarian.com.

Pet Photo Contest Sponsored byLargo Feed210 West Bay Dr, Largo, FL 727-581-8743 & Park Feed5775 Park Blvd. Pinellas Park 727-546-7503Pets of the weekThis is a comment that we frequently hear. What exactly does just getting old really mean? Does it mean that the ailments of older pets shouldnt be a concern? We hope not! Pets are unable to communicate that they are hurting and will instinctively hide their pain as a survival mechanism to prevent other predators from viewing them as weak or vulnerable. A behavior thats protective in the wild can be problematic in the home, making it difficult for owners to know when a pet is in pain. For years, people mistakenly assumed that because pets didnt show pain, they didnt feel pain. Now we know that simply isnt true. Their nervous systems are relatively similar to that of humans, so it stands to reason that what is painful for people is probably painful for pets. Veterinarians are super sleuths! They can tell if a pet is hurting by putting together a few clues. For example, an examination may show that the hind leg muscles of a dog have become atrophied (shrunken) and that he is flat-footed in the front. This indicates that he is shifting the majority of his weight from his back legs to his front legs, which then cause his carpi (wrists) to hyperextend. Even though he may not be whining or crying out, he is shifting the weight because his back legs are painful. In this case, the most likely diagnosis would be arthritis. Those clues may be difficult for a pet owner to assess, but what about the following? Does your older pet get up slower from a resting position? Is he unable to jump like he used to? Does he limp after exercise? Does he not want to walk as far or sleep more than usual? Any one of these signs could point to arthritis. Luckily, there are many treatment options now available for dogs and cats suffering from arthritis. Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs): Rimadyl, Metacam, Deramaxx. These reduce inflammation and provides pain relief. Supplements: Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These support the structure and function of joints. Other Pain Medications: Tramadol, Gabapentin. These should be used in conjunction with NSAIDs for additional pain relief. Therapy: Laser, acupuncture, massage, physical therapy. These preserve the mobility, strength and use of joints; produces endorphins. Arthritis is just one of the many conditions that we share with our pet companions. Other conditions include diabetes, Cushings, Addisons, cancer, pancreatitis, urinary tract infections, bladder and kidney stones, allergies to environmental allergens, dental infections with pain, tumors, arthritis, trauma, deafness, blindness, ear and skin infections, corneal ulcers, glaucoma, and the list goes on and on. What other clues should you be on the lookout for? Drinking and/or urinating more than normal (accidents in the house) Coughing Exercise intolerance (gets tired quickly after walking or exercise) Vomiting and/or diarrhea Difficulty chewing Tumors (lumps/bumps) WeightlLoss (always significant if it is not intended especially in cats) Dental disease can be a major contributing factor of weight loss in elderly pets. Many of these pets wont show any evidence that their mouth is painful because they compensate by chewing on the other side. In fact, after thorough dental procedures to resolve the pain and infection have been performed, many owners often report the emergence of a different pet. They just hadnt realized how much their pet had been hurting. As with humans, our elderly companion pets need and deserve more care and comfort in their golden years. We have so much more to offer themand them to us!Kim Donovan, D.V.M., is an associate veterinarian and medical director at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 16 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine.

14A Viewpoints Leader, March 13, 2014Former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment right Wednesday not to incriminate herself when she testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the IRS targeting of tea party groups. Oddly, the news media and Democratic leaders dont think its a big deal when a federal official Lerner was the head of the unit that deals with tax-exempt organizations when she first invoked the Fifth last May wont answer questions about her actions as a federal official, but they are in a huff because the committees chairman, Darrell Issa, abruptly called an end to the hearing and shut off the microphone. Ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings said he wanted to ask a procedural question. Then, as Cummings instead engaged in a rant in defense of Lerner, Issa again shut off the mic. Within a minute, it was back on, and Cummings continued to rail against what he sees as a one-sided investigation. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi later tweeted that Issas decision to silence a fellow Member of Congress was outrageous and disrespectful. The Washington Posts Dana Milbank denounced Issa for falling below todays low standard of civility in Congress. Issa exhibited shoddy manners. Worse, he lacked the discipline to not be baited by the crafty Cummings. Thus, Issa handed the left an excuse to make him the issue when the Internal Revenue Services practice of going after the tea party cries out for public scrutiny. Lerners refusal to answer questions, though it is the exercise of a constitutional right, should make all House members squirm. Just what was Lerner doing on the taxpayer dime that she doesnt want to share? Lerners silence is especially unsettling given that her attorney William Taylor III told reporters that she had given a full interview to the Department of Justice with no grant of immunity. Lerners lawyers, he said, have confidence that prosecutors, unlike Issa, are open-minded. The thing is that also unlike Issa, the Department of Justice is in a position to prosecute people. It does strike me as a little odd, Rutgers law professor George Thomas III told The Wall Street Journal. One explanation is the one given by her lawyer. The other, darker explanation is that she and her lawyer think the DOJ is not interested in a serious investigation of the IRS treatment of these tax-exempt groups. Could it be that Lerners lawyers do not fear the often-terrifying Justice Department precisely because President Barack Obama already signaled there is no cause for concern because the IRS story is a phony scandal? Similarly, the president signaled his disdain for conservative nonprofits during the 2010 and 2012 election seasons. Lo and behold, the IRS started to put conservative tax-exempt organizations on the slow track and under a microscope. Last year, Lerner admitted that after the IRS saw an uptick in applications for social welfare organizations in 2010, staff began screening for groups that used terms such as Tea Party and Patriots. She even apologized. That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, insensitive and inappropriate. Thats not how we go about selecting cases for further review, Lerner said. She also claimed that IRS staffers did not target tea party patriot types because of any political bias. They did it because they were working together. This was a streamlined way for them to refer to the cases. That is, it was convenient. I do not believe that claim. I dont know many liberals who actually believe it, either. I do believe that if the Bush administrations IRS had targeted social welfare groups that used terms such as anti-war and torture, the left would have wanted to investigate. They would have wanted to know whether the IRS policy had come from the White House. And they wouldnt have given a pass to officials who took the Fifth. Milbank is put out that Issa forced Lerner to invoke her right against self-incrimination no fewer than 10 times. Apparently, it would be the gentlemanly thing for Issa to allow Lerner to maintain a version of events that defies credulity without answering to the American public. Ignorance is bliss.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. I dreamed recently that Arizona had adopted some draconian laws at the same time I was contemplating a trip to the state. In my dream, wanting to learn more about those laws and other issues, I called the Arizona Office of Tourism and spoke to the minister of truth. Hi, Tom here. Im thinking about visiting Arizona, driving from Florida. Do I need a passport? Not if you are an American citizen. But keep it handy. I understand that Phoenix is considered to be one of the most polluted cities in the United States. Im concerned that Ill get sick if I stay there for too long. Youll get used to it. If not, there are plenty of places where you can buy drugs, as long as youre not gay. Minister, I read that a few years ago Mesa was ranked one of the most redneck cities in America. On the basis of what? Percent of the population that didnt complete high school, the number of Walmarts, taxidermists and local gun stores, I said. Keep that to yourself, unless you want to get shot. Mums the word, sir. The ACLU and others have tangled with the state over concerns about rampant racial profiling stemming from the states anti-immigrant laws. Even Mississippi shied away from adopting such legislation. Used to like Mississippi, before the instigators made movies like O Brother Where Art Thou? and The Help. What did you think of Mississippi Burning and Ghosts of Mississippi? I asked. Lets move on. The minister was getting edgy. Im appalled that Arizona has a reputation for pushing conservative, if not unconstitutional, measures that affect quality of life and personal liberties. Does not John McCain, a voice of reason, have clout any more? Johns OK, but hes no Barry. Goldwater? No, Manilow. Who do you think Im talking about? the minister said. What do you say about remarks made by critics that Arizona is on its way to becoming a police state? Do you think the continued backlash will hurt tourism and the states economy and discourage companies from relocating to Arizona? Of course not, the minister said. All we have to do at the tourism bureau is continue to get the word out about our great scenic beauty the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, our history, our wildlife. Elks, bobcats, bears, mountain lions and rattlesnakes. They all continue to thrive, just as our elected officials will survive the continued assault on their reputations. Maybe youre right. Rattlesnakes dont commit suicide. You sound like an instigator. We have much to be proud of. We have low taxes and control our government spending and But about a year ago, I said, interrupting him, reports said that Arizona was tied with Alabama with having the sixth worst poverty rate in the nation. Pick, pick, pick. Listen, Arizona is a great place to visit and a great place to live and work. We are God-fearing people and proud of our heritage. In my dream, I thought about what Arizonas minister of truth had to say. I really wanted to see Arizona, but I was wrestling with my conscience. Do I want to visit a state that through the acts of its government repeatedly treads on human rights, freedom and dignity? Since my final destination was southern California, I decided to visit Arizona; its kind of hard to drive around it. Traveling through Arizonas desert, I had a flat tire, and I decided to pull off the side of the road to change it. The distinct sound of a rattle behind me warned me that I was not welcomed there. Then I woke up and realized I was only dreaming. I recalled that the governor had recently vetoed legislation that would allow businesses to discriminate based on religious grounds. Some sanity finally prevailed in a land of rattlesnakes. Whether I will go to Arizona in the next few years remains to be seen. Ill sleep on it some more.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@ TBNweekly.comIm always searching for better ways to live my life, or just to get through the average day. Ive flirted with a number of philosophies, such as Presbyterianism, hedonism, alcoholism, Buddhism, marriage, Amway, Course in Miracles and weight-lifting. They all have their good and bad points. One view of life that seems to make sense to me is stoicism. This school of thought was founded in Athens in the third century B.C. It later spread to Rome, and gradually came to be the favorite philosophy of educated Romans. Unfortunately, the emperor Justinian I put an end to stoicism and all other religions except Christianity in 529 A.D. This paved the way for the Spanish Inquisition, in which many non-Christians were burned at the stake. This persecution, in turn, led to John Lennons thoughtful ballad, Imagine, which pictured a world completely free of any and all religions. Fat chance for that. Today I wont burden you with the fine points of stoicism, because to understand them youd have to become a full-fledged stoic, which would violate the due process sections of the Constitution. But a few principles of stoicism are worth noting. One of them is that we should strive for self-control and fortitude as a means of defeating destructive emotions such as envy, fear, anger and jealousy. You will not find stoics appearing on the Dr. Phil or Judge Judy TV shows, which specialize in presenting people who hate each others guts and blame God for whatever is wrong. One of the most-remembered stoics was the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. He ruled from 161 to 180 A.D. Historians tell us he was one of the better emperors, in that he did not commit random acts of fratricide, incest, or the torture of wartime prisoners, all of which sports were common among the Roman hierarchy. However, he did persecute Christians. Nobodys perfect. Marcus Aurelius wrote hundreds of thoughts about how to live. Heres one: It is in our power to have no opinion about a thing, and not to be disturbed in our soul, for things themselves have no natural power. Heres another: This is the chief thing: Be not perturbed, for all things are according to the nature of the universal; and in a little time you will be nobody and nowhere.... In trying to list persons who I believe might be a stoic, I immediately think of Bill Belichick, the head coach of the New England Patriots football team. Bill has become famous for his frequent response to sportswriters questions, especially inane ones such as, Coach, what is your estimate of the Patriots chance for a Super Bowl bid? Belichick patiently (and unemotionally) answers, Well, it is what it is. He then elaborates by pointing out the obvious, i.e., Who knows? Well do our best, and accept the results, whatever they are. Translated, It is what it is could also mean, All of life and the universe is out there, and nobody has much control over it. So lets move ahead calmly and not get our shorts in a twist over any of it. Does this mean stoics must be fatalistic non-responders to the problems of life? I dont think so. Marcus Aurelius spent the final years of his life, as emperor, handling all sorts of problems brought to him by his subjects for solution. He also successfully turned back attacks by Germanic invaders. But he stayed calm while doing so. I would guess that down through the ages stoics have tended to drive other people crazy, just by refusing to fly into a tizzy each time something goes wrong. Lets say a stoic named Hailey is driving along Ulmerton Road during rush hour. Another motorist cuts in front of Hailey just as his wife Marge is putting on fresh lipstick. Hailey hits his brakes, and Marge smears lipstick all over her cheek and earlobe. She curses the other driver and expects her husband to join her in her road rage. But, as a card-carrying stoic, he declines to do so. He stays cool and grateful that he didnt slam his Honda into the other guys car. His calmness turns his wife into a sputtering nut case. She accuses him of being a wimp and a wuss. Hailey replies, Im neither one. Im a stoic. His wife soon divorces Hailey on the grounds of emotional desertion. Another manifestation of stoicism is to simply maintain a stiff upper lip in the face of pain or adversity. I think we are surrounded by thousands of stoics who dont even realize they qualify as such. Many of them are known as grown-ups. Or tough cookies. Or just cool.

He is absolutely right and they should be banned to restricted areas such as out in Fort De Soto. Many times I have watched them at Pass-A-Grille as they come into the shore only to race back out into the gulf. Of greater concern is the speed at which they travel on the water, and it will only be a period of time until one speeds over an unsuspecting swimmer causing fatal injuries, and no doubt a lawsuit to the city of St. Pete or Treasure Island. Bob Henderson Kitchener, OntarioJust trying to cross the roadEditor: Motorists, I am not a crazy lady standing at an intersection, waving a bag. I am a senior, who is trying to cross the road and not get that rundown feeling. Also, I believe that I do have the right of way at intersections when the walk sign is lit.

The term bounty land signifies tracts of land that were given by governments for service in the military. Sometimes it was given as partial payment for service, and sometimes it was given to incentivize men to volunteer for service. Using land in such a way certainly does not originate with us. The practice dates back to colonial times and even before. If you had an ancestor who served in the military from 1776 to 1858, there is the possibility that he was involved with bounty lands. In this column we will focus on the American Revolutionary War period. Of course, when land was granted, there was some sort of paper trail created, and in that trail lies the genealogical value of bounty lands. Although bounty land warrants do not provide as much genealogically relevant family information as we might like, there is still value to be had. The information that awaits us can prove military service of an ancestor, and it can provide information on his heirs if they are the ones to ultimately claimed the land. It can locate a soldier as belonging to a particular unit, locate a veteran geographically after the conflict, and lead to the discovery of a land patent that describes the location of the land in detail. During the Revolutionary War, bounty land was awarded both by individual states and the federal government. The states were tasked to provide soldiers to serve in the federal army, called the Continental Line, and they used bounty land to encourage such enlistments and to reward such service. The federal government also gave bounty land for that same service. With the exception of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, veterans or their heirs could receive land from both levels of government; that is, they could double dip. The individual states could essentially do anything they wanted with their land, so some awarded lands to their citizens to compensate for other than Continental Line service. However, those awards were relatively few in comparison. An example is Connecticut, which awarded land to any of its citizens, soldier or not, who suffered property loss as a result of enemy action. It awarded that land in a special tract in what is now northeastern Ohio. It was given the unique name of Fire Lands, and you can still see highway signs today announcing entry to the Fire Lands. Whether or not a state awarded bounty land to its soldiers of the Continental Line really depended on what land the state had to give away. Remember that the definitions of state boundaries were much different during the revolutionary period than they are today. Virginia, for example, included the present state of Kentucky, and South Carolina included the present state of Tennessee. Some states had the advantage of having such trans-Appalachian territory at their disposal, and some did not. States that had land to give as bounties were Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. Of these Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina were states with no western lands, and so they awarded land completely within what we consider their current boundaries. Delaware, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont were states that had no available land to award at all. Maine was not a state at this time but instead was a district of Massachusetts, which used it for its bounty land location. Even so, Maine also had its own bounty land policy, and thus was the only non-state to award bounty land. Finding records for state bounty land can be challenging given the decentralized policy as indicated. A good general reference, however, is Red Book. Each state is represented in the volume and each has a special section dealing with military records. It is within that section that specific pointers will be given as to where state bounty land records may be found today. It also pays to search for the websites of historical societies in the appropriate states to see if they have published any extracts from bounty land records from their state archives. Cyndis List (www.cyndislist.com) is an online genealogy site index that can reveal websites dealing with this topic. A particularly good resource is the book Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants Awarded by State Governments by Bockstruck. It details bounty land policies in each state and points to record locations and references. You can find that book in the genealogy collection at the Largo Public Library. By the early 1800s, most of the states had ceded their unused western lands to the federal government, and it is in part from those holdings that federal-level bounty lands were selected. Primarily they were in reserves in what are now Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. Finding federal level bounty land records is a bit more straightforward than finding state records: the National Archives is the central repository for all such records. There are two places within the Archives that you will find them. There is a file of bounty land applications that you can look at, but if the veteran applied for a pension as well as bounty land, his bounty land records will be included in his pension application file. Pension application files can be ordered from the National Archives, and can be found digitized online at Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, and Heritage Quest. Both Ancestry and Heritage Quest can normally be accessed through your public library. If there is no pension application file for your ancestor, then you need to order the bounty land documents from the National Archives. If your ancestor actually took possession of bounty land, a document called a land patent recorded the transfer of ownership from the government to the individual. In the case of federal land, those documents have been digitized and are presented online at the Bureau of Land Management website (www.glorecords.blm.gov/). These are only single documents, however, and the files at the National Archives will probably contain several pieces of paper. The Largo Public Library also has some print references that can be helpful. There are four volumes of the Federal Land Series by Smith, Military Bounty Land 1776-1855 by Rose, and Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files that may prove helpful. The Pinellas Genealogy Society has a class at the Largo Public Library that covers military records in general, and another that covers bounty land specifically. You can find their class list at www.flpgs.org/classes.asp. It is updated frequently, so keep checking.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

It can cause us to lose sleep, not think straight and even get physically sick. I know this because one of my daughters recently had what I would consider pretty bad anxiety issues. Her anxiety was related to school and all the tests students have to take these days. You have to realize this is a kid who loves school and gets all As, but something was stressing her out. She actually got physically sick. For almost a month, she would get nauseous before going to school. There wasnt anything I could do that would make it better. I went over our daily routine and evaluated if there were any big changes in our lifestyle that would cause this. Everything seemed pretty routine and things at school were fine, but for some reason her anxiety was building. We thought at first it was maybe a milk allergy that she developed. But I stopped giving her milk for breakfast and she was still getting sick. As a parent, seeing my daughter like this made me sad. She would tell me, Mom, I dont want to be like this, but I cant help it. The things she worried about were things like taking a test, not knowing if she did her homework right, not knowing if her teacher was going to be at class or if there was going to be a substitute. All of these things stressed her out and gave her anxiety. The fear of the unknown was what she was afraid of. Since then, I have found out that a lot of kids have anxiety issues like hers. I talked to fellow classmates moms and even to some of my neighbors and found that she wasnt the only one going through this. Not all of the other kids had it to the point of getting sick, but they had other issues they were dealing with from the anxiety. Some of them were acting out on their siblings and others were just sad, not wanting to do anything. I was fortunate that I have a friend who does counseling and she helped me get to the bottom of this anxiety problem with my daughter. My friend said her daughter had gone through this before and that there were some things I could do to help her overcome this anxiety. One of the exercises we did was naming her anxiety the Fear Monster. We had her draw this Fear Monster on a piece of paper really big and on the bottom of the paper draw a picture of herself small. We had her write all the things the Fear Monster would say to her. After she drew that picture, on another piece of paper we had her draw herself big and the fear monster small. We looked at those fears and my daughter realized that they were just lies. The things she was worried about, like failing a test, was a lie, because she never failed a test. She was worried about people saying mean things to her, but no one ever said mean things to her. She was worried about her teacher not being there and having a mean substitute, but she had never had a mean substitute. She figured out that she was worrying about things that she didnt need to worry about. We did other techniques that included visualizing what she was afraid of and overcoming it by being brave and conquering her fear. I heard a statistic that 90 percent of the things we worry about dont ever end up happening anyway, so why worry? Most of the time, worrying about something cant change the outcome. I know we all go through this at some point in our life. I know I worried in the past. I am glad that my daughter is realizing how to deal with fear and anxiety at a young age. She is doing great now and the Fear Monster has been put to sleep.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The association works to promote peace through Interfaith conversations; diffuse suspicion or antagonism towards religions; increase mutual trust, respect, and civility; encourage relationships of understanding and empathy among all people. The evening at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was wonderful, said Sharon Cook in a press release. Cook is the secretary and event planner for the association. The feeling of love and acceptance between all attending was palpable. The members of this faith were very welcoming and provided a great deal of information about their churchs beliefs and values. Many members of the association were appreciative of the event because it corrected misinformation they had heard about Mormons. This is one of the main reasons the St. Petersburg Interfaith Association sponsors events similar to this one to correct misunderstandings and to eliminate mistrust so that we can all dwell together in harmony and mutual respect, Cook said.Seminole First Baptist ChurchSEMINOLE The annual yard sale is set for Saturday, March 15, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Seminole First Baptist Church, 11000 Johnson Blvd. All proceeds will go to support the churchs youth mission trips this summer in Georgia and Florida.

CALENDAR, from page 3AFull moon should increase activityThis weeks full moon tides will be the biggest factor in hopefully spurring on a good bite both inshore and offshore. Most days last week had a real good look to them, temperatures were warm, and winds were moderate for the most part. But the one thing that was missing for much of the day was significant tidal movement. When you look at a daily tide chart and its showing a high tide of 1.5 feet at 10 a.m. and a low tide of 1.0 feet at 2 p.m., thats not going to translate into good fishing for redfish and trout no matter how pretty a day it is. In fact when the tide is moving that slow the only thing that might help you out is the wind. Wind will push water in when its blowing out of the south and will pull water out when its out of the north. Looking back two weeks when we had the good new moon tides we also had some pretty good fishing and with some big tides on tap for the first part of the week, hopefully history will repeat itself. Afternoon high tides should produce good catches of redfish as they make their way with the tide from the outer edges of the flats up to the mangrove shorelines and the small oyster mounds that collect on the points. On a high tide move from point to point casting soft plastic jigs or live shrimp under a cork. With inshore water temperatures hanging around 65 degrees, speckled trout should be ready to spawn or at least be in a pre-spawn situation on this full moon. Afternoon high outgoing tides have been the better tides for targeting the big fish. Targeting spoil island drop-offs with either a freelined select shrimp, pilchards or a soft-plastic jig bounced along the bottom should let you know pretty quickly if theres a school of trout on the Island. Once a school is located a limit of fish can come in pretty short order. Release the big females so that they can make more trout and keep only the smaller males. Spanish mackerel, kingfish and cobia will be making their way along our beaches starting any day now. With an easterly wind flow in place, look for this weekend to present some good opportunities for targeting these seasonal visitors. Those willing to slow troll live shad, ladyfish or mullet around near-shore bird activity should get bit.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

These two commercially successful hits represent only a fraction of this singer-songwriter folk-rock musicians total body of work. Stewart will give audiences a taste of his musicianship Saturday, March 22, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $29. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Guitarist Dave Nachmanoff and bassist Mike Lindauer will accompany Stewart. Like the fine wines that are his hobby, Stewarts gifts as a singer and songwriter have matured and ripened over the course of his musical career, stretching from the early s to the present. He may be best known for the 1976 album Year of the Cat, which spawned two Top 20 hits, the title song and On the Border. Not one to rest on his laurels, Stewart is nearing the 20-album mark, and remains a distinctively literate and vivid storyteller, time traveling and teleporting himself and his listeners from World War I battlefields to s bedrooms, from ships to airplanes to ice floes, from the specific to the mysterious.BackgroundAccording to a biography provided by Skyline Music, Al Stewart was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1945. He was still very young when his family relocated to Bournemouth, a seaside town in the South of England. As it turned out, it was in Bournemouth that Stewart purchased his first guitar in the 1960s. Stewart bought that particular instrument from Andy Summers, who would go on to become the lead guitarist of The Police. Robert Fripp, who later formed the prog-rock band King Crimson, taught Stewart his first guitar licks. By age 16, Stewart was playing guitar in a variety of local bands. In 1963 The Beatles were breaking out in England, Stewart said in the liner notes to Greatest Hits, a collection issued by Rhino Records in 2004. I wanted to be Al Beatle. Along came the Rolling Stones and I wanted to be Keith Richards. Then Stewart heard Bob Dylans original songs. His reaction must have resembled a musical epiphany because StewartTime PassagesFolk-rock icon Al Stewart to perform at Clearwaters Capitol Theatre Photo courtesy of SKYLINE MUSICAl Stewart performs March 22 at the Capitol Theatre.completely shifted his focus from instrumentalist to lyricist and vocalist. In 1965, Stewart moved to London where he got a gig as emcee at the Les Cousins, a wellknown folk club. There, he met emerging artists such as Paul Simon, Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch and Cat Stevens. He soon started writing and performing his own songs, first at Les Cousins and later at other folk clubs and colleges across England. He became associated with a number of folk-oriented groups such as the Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention and The Pentangle. In 1967, Stewart released his debut album, Bedsitter Images. The album showcased the folkrock musicians knack for observational storytelling. Most tracks utilized a full orchestra and featured orchestration by Irish composer and conductor Alexander Faris. The follow-up album, 1969s Love Chronicles, featured a number of prominent supporting musicians such as Jimmy Page (of Led Zeppelin) and four members of Fairport Convention. Over the next few years, Stewart would record and release two more albums Zero She Flies in 1970 and Orange in 1972 written autobiographical mode. Then, in 1973, his focus abruptly shifted. On the album Past, Present & Future, the singer-songwriter adjusted his lyrical gaze outward, contemplating history, literature and current events. Anchored by historical themes, each song represents a different decade of the 20th century.

Tapping into the significance of the car and the open road in American car culture and the freedom and individualism with which they both provide, the film is a story of honor, friendship and loyalty and the testosterone-fueled journey of one man looking for revenge and, ultimately, redemption. For Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), who runs his familys auto shop and races the underground street circuit with his buddies on weekends, life is good. But his whole world is turned upside down when he is sent to prison for a crime he didnt commit. In prison, he spends the next two years thinking about one thing: vengeance. While questioning the morals to which he has always adhered, he is nevertheless determined to bring down his enemies no matter what the cost. Based on the eponymous car-racing video-game franchise, Need for Speed captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting while bringing a level of intensity and authenticity to the action on-screen.Tyler Perrys The Single Moms ClubGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Tyler Perry, Nia Long, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Amy Smart, Zulay Henao, Cocoa Brown, Ryan Eggold, William Levy, Terry Crews and Eddie Cibrian Director: Tyler Perry Rated: PG-13 In Tyler Perrys The Single Moms Club, when five struggling single moms put aside their differences to form a support group, they find inspiration and laughter in their new sisterhood, and help each other overcome the obstacles that stand in their way.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The Art of the StealGenre: Comedy and crime Cast: Kurt Russell, Jay Baruchel, Katheryn Winnick, Chris Diamantopolulos, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones, Terence Stamp and Matt Dillon Director: Jonathan Sobol Rated: R Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one final lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon). Reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the successful heist leads to another far riskier plan devised by Nicky. They fail to realize each others separate agendas when their plan goes awry in this con movie about honor, revenge and the bonds of brotherhood.Better Living Through ChemistryGenre: Dark comedy Cast: Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Norbert Leo Butz, Ben Schwartz, Ken Howard, Jen Harris, Peter Jacobson, Harrison Holzer, Ray Liotta and Jane Fonda Director: Geoff Moore and David Posamentier Not rated A small town pharmacists uneventful life is turned inside out when a chance encounter with a lonely trophy wife turns into a walk on the wild side in the murderously funny dark comedy, Better Living Through Chemistry. Doug Varney (Sam Rockwell) is the model of suburban respectability until the night he delivers a prescription to the home of Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde). Gorgeous, seductive and multiply addicted, Elizabeth eagerly introduces Doug to extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedPaul, Poots, Keaton star in action film Need for Speed room behavior and the illicit pleasures of the pharmacopeia he has access to in his store. Disregarded for years by everyone from his domineering wife Kara (Michelle Monaghan) and troubled son Ethan (Harrison Holzer), to the goldbricking employees at the drugstore he bought from his insufferable father-in-law (Ken Howard), Doug surprises himself by embarking on an exhilarating drug-and-alcohol fueled affair with the most glamorous woman he has ever met. But his extracurricular activities quickly send his life spinning out of control when a routine DEA audit reveals serious discrepancies in his inventory. Convinced hes about to lose everything, Doug hatches an illconsidered scheme with Elizabeth that will allow them to have it all at an almost unthinkable price. EnemyGenre: Psychosexual thriller Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Melanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini Director: Denis Villeneuve Rated: R Jake Gyllenhaal reteams with director Denis Villeneuve in this sexy and hypnotically surreal psychological thriller that breathes new life into the doppelganger tradition. Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal) is a glum, disheveled history professor, who seems disinterested even in his beautiful girlfriend, Mary (Laurent). Watching a movie on the recommendation of a colleague, Adam spots his double, a bit-part actor named Anthony Clair, and decides to track him down. The identical men meet and their lives become bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined. Gyllenhaal is transfixing as both Adam and Anthony, provoking empathy as well as disapproval while embodying two distinct personas. With masterfully controlled attention to detail, Villeneuve takes us on an enigmatic and gripping journey through a world that is both familiar and strange and hard to shake off long after its final, unnerving image.Photo courtesy of DREAMWORKS PICTURESAbove, Dominic Cooper stars in Need for Speed, from DreamWorks Pictures.

The DenGenre: Thriller Cast: Melanie Papalia, Adam Shapiro, David Schlactenhaufen and Matt Riedy Director: Zach Donahue Nor rated After receiving a grant for her graduate thesis, Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia) logs onto a video-chat site known as The Den, on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video-chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam. While th police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth. Her life quickly spirals out of control as she gets pulled deeper into the darkest recesses of the Internet. And eventually, Elizabeth finds herself trapped in a twisted game in which she and her loved ones are targeted for the same grisly fate as the first victim.Le Week-EndGenre: Drama Cast: Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, Jeff Goldblum, Olly Alexander and Judith Davis Director: Roger Michel Rated: R Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nicks old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy drama, starring two of Britains national treasures, is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell.The Right Kind of WrongGenre: Romance Cast: Ryan Kwanten, Sara Canning, Will Sasso and Catherine OHara Director: Jeremiah Chechik Rated: R In this new romantic comedy, The Right Kind of Wrong, Leo Palamino is a failed-writer-turned-dishwasher made famous for his many flaws and shortcomings in a blog called Why You Suck, a huge Internet success written by his ex-wife. Then Leo meets Colette, the girl of his dreams on the day she is marrying the perfect man. And so, the ultimate underdog story begins as Leo, a fearless dreamer, risks all to show Colette and the whole wide world all that is right with a man famous for being wrong.Opening this weekend Photo by K.C.

Building on the appeal of this album, Stewart next released Modern trrTimes. This 1975 album made it onto the U.S. Top 40 charts and generated enough interest to justify a full-length U.S. tour.Year of the CatIn 1976, Al Stewart released Year of the Cat. The album generated two Top 20 hits Year of the Cat and On the Border on its way to becoming a million-selling record. The album was produced and engineered by Alan Parsons. In addition to the hit singles, the album also includes tracks such as Lord Grenville, about Sir Richard Grenville, an Elizabethan explorer. The album is widely considered to be Stewarts masterpiece. Its title track transcends the artists folk-rock background with its protracted instrumental sections. The full-length album version of the song incorporates an extended series of solos featuring cello, violin, piano, acoustic and distorted electric guitar, synthesizer and saxophone. The follow-up album, Time Passages, reunited Stewart and Parsons. The 1978 release mirrored the success of its predecessor and scored a Top 10 hit with the title track as well as a Top 30 single with Song on the Radio. Moving into the 1980s, Stewart continued to record and release albums, though new trends in music kept his work from receiving as much popular attention. In the early s, Stewart returned to his folk roots, setting off on a solo tour of the UK. He also released the album Famous Last Words, which utilized acoustic instrumentation and traditional folk and classical styles. He followed up with 1995s Between the Wars, an album featuring songs set in and themes focusing on the 1920s and 1930s. This album was Stewarts first collaboration with former Wings guitarist Laurence Juber. He partnered with Juber again in 2000 for the album Down in the Cellar, a concept album cleverly capitalizing on Stewarts knowledge of fine wines. More recently, Stewart released Uncorked, a live album recorded with Dave Nachmanoff. The 2009 album is described as take a trip through Stewarts musical back pages, both in terms of the musical catalogue and in terms of performance style, according to a press release from Skyline Music. Stewart reveals that during the height of his success in the late 1970s, he never felt all that comfortable on stage. I dont think I ever knew how to be in front of a band, said Stewart in the press release. I always felt I was loitering there while they were doing all the work. For Uncorked, Stewarts first live acoustic disc since 1992s Rhymes In Rooms, both the singer-songwriter and his collaborator made a decision not to replicate any of the tracks from that disc, even if it meant leaving off such standards as On the Border. Because Ive learned all of Als songs, we had an opportunity to revisit some of the tunes that hadnt been featured in more recent years, said Nachmanoff. In fact, Stewart and Nachmanoff are still apt to mix things up a bit while touring. I think at this point, we can actually do three or four full shows and never play the same songs twice. And while Al usually comes in to a gig with a set list in mind, often times, well just throw it out and go with the flow. If Uncorked is any indication of Stewarts newfound musical freedom, the Capitol Theatre concert will be well-received. The musicians guitar work is better now than it was back in the day, thanks to the Clearwater. Tickets start at $52. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Aaron Neville, whose recent PBS special showcases him as one of the worlds finest singers, is revisiting the music he grew up with and adding a few new spins along the way with his latest record My True Story. Nevilles first release for Blue Note Records is a collection of 12 classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style and co-produced by Blue Note president Don Was and Keith Richards. Neville explains that having internalized this music so deeply, he was able to show the musicians the genuine oldschool feel that these songs require. 24th annual Country In The Park, Saturday, March 15, 10 a.m., at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N., Pinellas Park.

PETERSBURG Breathe Carolina will hit the stage Saturday, March 15, at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave. Doors will open 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. Call 895-3045 or visit www.statetheatreconcerts.com. Breathe Carolina officially was established in 2006 but, in a sense, the bands beginnings go all the way back to the 1980s when two key founding members entered the world. Kyle Even and David Schmitt, born in 1985 and 1988 respectively, both decided to explore a career in music at an early age. They both spent their formative years playing in several Colorado-based music groups. Even, a vocalist, joined the band Rivendale while Schmitt, a guitarist, performed with As the Flood Waters Rose. The two bands frequently played together. When other members of the bands departed for college, Even and Schmitt partnered to form Breathe Carolina. The band recorded the extended play Gossip in 2007. The self-released EP was available exclusively on iTunes. They followed up with the album Its Classy, Not Classic in 2008, along with a supporting tour. Since first bursting on to the scene in 2008, Breathe Carolina has struck an inimitable alchemy between electronic music and rock, according to a biography provided by Fearless Records. Their distinctive sound keeps them ahead of the curve and facilitated the their platinum-selling 2011 breakout single Blackout from the album Hell Is What You Make It. The song reached 17 on the U.S. Mainstream Top 40 chart while the album peaked at 42 on the U.S. Billboard 200. The bands follow-up, Savages, sees the band once again treading boldly into fresh territory, delving heavier into the electronic dance world while staying true to their rock roots. The resulting combination sounds equally at home in a club, or lighting up packed fields at Warped Tour. The album, set for release in April, features guest vocals from pop artists Karmin and rock frontmen Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria and Tyler Carter of Issues. Schmitt has taken over both vocals and guitars. Joining Schmitt on tour will be Luis Bonet, programming and keyboards; Eric Armenta, drums; and Tommy Coops, guitar. Also on the bill will be Jonny Craig, Ghost Town and Divided By Friday.Breathe Carolina to perform at State Theatre March 15 Photo courtesy of FEARLESS RECORDSBreathe Carolina takes the stage March 15 at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg.Largo Thoroughly Modern Millie, with book by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan, music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Dick Scanlan; presented by Eight OClock Theatre, through March 16, at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo.

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. If the mess is any indication, its no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife.

Melissa Poletz and her partner Josh Lipp did just that and brought their two children to the event. Charlotte, 6, was busy running from one booth to another while her father tried to keep up. Jax, 9-months-old, was just enjoying himself riding around in the stroller. We live in Clearwater Beach, said Melissa. We just had to come over and see this, it is very good. Poletz said she was pleased with some of the things she was able to find from the vendors. They actually had childrens books for sale here, and you dont often find that at these fairs, she said. Im impressed with the variety of things that are available. This is our first time here but well definitely be back. Lindsay and Adam Sterry of Belleair Bluffs are people who do come every year. This is very cool, said Lindsay. We used to live in Indian Rocks Beach so it is fun to come back and enjoy this. Diana and Alex Chrapowicki of Holmes County, Ohio, were enjoying the stroll around the grounds. They got there by chance. We found out about this at the information center here in town, said Diana. This is like a collage; there are so many different things and different people. This is really nice. Each year Greenfest attracts more than 2,000 people and this year even more vendors were added. Organizer Christy Ward said last year there were 90 vendors; this year there were 95. One of the new vendors was Barrie West with her Beach Art by Barrie display. She hasnt seen a piece of beach-related memorabilia that she doesnt paint. I would describe my work as anything nautical or tropical, she said. I paint it all; everything here is hand-painted. West participates in shows nearly every weekend of the year. She likes Greenfest, she said, because as a resident of Seminole it was nice and close to home. A little farther from home was Gary McKenzie of Cadiz, Ky. He was enjoying inspecting Wests work. I especially like that big painted turtle, he said. West said shell decide whether to come back next year once she gets a chance to see just how good business was during the one day event. This years Greenfest was the 7th annual. The COTI Christian School, a Ministry of the Church of the Isles where the event was held, sponsors it. A celebration of green Photos by BRIAN GOFFVendor Barrie West shows off her wares to Gary McKenzie visiting from Kentucky at the 2014 Greenfest celebration.
