TORRES LARGO The funding to allow new economic development incentives for Largos downtown district passed through quickly March 18. The city now is one step closer to being the first in the Tampa Bay market to offer the unique incentives, Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon said. A resolution allowing the incentives will be up for the commissioners consideration April 1, she said. During that meeting, the city will appoint members to the newly established community development advisory board. Then the city will be able to accept applications for the new incentives, which are designed to encourage more infill housing, new mixed used development with office space and more jobs within the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District. Brydon said staff picked up on those three measures specifically, after seeing how the cities of Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach were able to promote growth within their redevelopment districts. It was obvious the success that they had with those, Brydon said. You can just see over the course of the last five to seven years, the growth was been phenomenal in those markets. The incentives tap into tax increment financing, generated through and within the redevelopment districts. The ordinance passed March 18 allows $80,000 of the districts budget to be set aside for these incentives. The process to create the new incentive programs Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESJai McFall of Organic Living, right, explains the different seeding plants she offers to customer Delalle Alexander of Clearwater Beach March 14.Jai McFall is on a mission to promote healthy, nutrient-rich food gardens By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The food from Jai McFalls garden, growing abundantly in front of her Largo store, doesnt look much like the produce offered in grocery stores. The plants that do look familiar taste different, stronger. But thats a good thing, McFall said. The nutrients she feeds the plants keeps them from getting gobbled up by bugs. The produce tastes better and is better for you because theyve been cared for properly. What we do is we build up soil and then we put minerals in it, because minerals are elements essential for life, and minerals are what gives food their flavor, she said. McFall calls herself an edible landscaper. Her business, Organic Living, has been based at 13064 Indian Rocks Road in Largo since last July. Through it, she teaches people the benefits of organic food and, more importantly, how to grow it in difficult Florida soil. From her own garden, McFall shows off easily recognized vegetables: eggplant, kale, tomatoes, cauliflower, Romaine lettuce and cayenne peppers. She explains why the arugula and oregano tastes so different and offers tastes of leaves: sorrell, Thai basil, tarragon, cilantro, Cuban oregano, fennel, tarragon, longevity spinach, Chinese chives, Okinawan spinach, Italian dandelion, bronze fennel, stevia and dill. Even the hibiscus and snapdragon flowers are edible. And all the plants are growing and thriving, without any pesticides. Everything I sell is specific to Central Florida. It might not work in Miami, and it might not work upMcFall shows off a cauliflower plant growing in the front yard of her Largo business.MPO prepares to merge with PPC Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERKen Welch, Pinellas County commissioner, asks questions about law enforcement during a March 12 MPO discussion on the Pinellas Trail. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER If all goes according to plan, the first meeting of the consolidated Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Pinellas Planning Council will take place in May. Gov. Rick Scott signed the MPOs reapportionment plan Feb. 13. At the March 12 meeting, the MPO discussed the steps needed to make the plan a reality. The first step is to amend the interlocal agreement between the Florida Department of Transportation, Pinellas County and municipal governments, and the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, followed by the appointment of 13 elected officials to serve on the unified board. Currently 11 officials serve on the MPO board. One new appointment will represent the beach communities and the other will represent the cities of Seminole, Gulfport, South Pasadena, Belleair, Belleair Shores and Gulfport. Members serving in the new board appointments would serve on a rotating basis. The Barrier Islands Government Council will make the beach appointments. The interlocal agreement would establish the process. MPO staff is working to get the item on member government agendas as quick as possible for approval of the amended interlocal See MPO, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERThe U.S. Senate passed a bill, 72-22, Thursday evening that should help curb massive flood insurance rate hikes on Pinellas County property owners. Sen. Bill Nelson said the legislation caps flood insurance rate increases to no more than 18 percent, while making FEMA responsible for finding ways to keep flood insurance affordable. Its not everything I wanted for homeowners, but its a significant protection from unconscionable rate hikes, Nelson said in an email statement. Nelson has been on the frontlines fighting to change the negative effects of reform for the National Flood Insurance Program. He was instrumental in getting the Senate to pass legislation in January to reverse some of the actions brought about by the implementation of Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012. The House passed its own bill March 4. Nelson said the bill passed by the Senate would have gone further than the House version passed March 13. But passage of the House bill Thursday was widely seen as the best course of action to give homeowners some form of immediate relief, he said. Many property owners with subsidized policies from the National Flood Insurance Program have suffered rate increases of 25 percent since provisions of BW-12 went into effect. Homeowners are unable to sell their homes due to exorbitant rates new property owners would have to pay. Gov. Rick Scott called the bills passage a victory for all Florida families who have been impacted by ongoing uncertainty and faced the possibility of paying devastating rate increases. Now, it is up to President Barack Obama to sign the legislation into law. Doug Izzo, who keeps up with government affairs for the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce, sent out an email summarizing the key features of House Bill 3370 shortly after it passed. The bill restores grandfathering. It repeals the requirement for an automatic rate hike when a home is sold or when an insurance policy lapses. It limits annual rate increases to 18 percent. It gives refunds to policyholders who bought pre-FIRM homes after July 6, 2012 and charged higher premiums. The bill ups funding for an affordability study from $750,000 to $3 million. It provides for long-term relief to NFIP by adding an annual surcharge of $25 for residential policies and $250 for commercial and secondary properties. The bill does not contain relief for commercial properties or for owners of second homes. It does not charge the measure for automatic rate hikes on severe loss properties. The legislation does delay rate increases triggered by TBN GRAPHICA bill promising to bring relief to those facing high flood insurance premiums is waiting for President Barack Obamas signature.

4A Largo Leader, March 20, 2014 agreement to be able to meet as the new board in May.Pinellas Trail safetyA good part of the March 12 meeting involved a discussion about safety on the Pinellas Trail. Members heard an overview of the Trail Security Task Force, a report on 2013 Trail incidents, Trail Rangers and an update on the use of surveillance cameras. The Pinellas Trail Security Task Force is an MPO advisory committee comprised of law enforcement personnel and Pinellas Countys Parks and Conservation Resources, Animal Services, Public Safety Services and Risk Management. Volunteer auxiliary rangers also are represented. The group meets quarterly to report incidents. MPO members expressed a desire for more information about the areas where the 97 active rangers serve along the trail. Currently, the volunteers have no specific assignment. Sarah Ward, MPO interim executive director, said the rangers are ambassadors along the Trail and other city parks. It is not their function to enforce, she said. Ken Welch, Pinellas County commissioner, wanted to know who was responsible for safety. The answer: Law enforcement is the responsibility of the local jurisdiction. For example, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office takes care of areas of Trail in unincorporated Pinellas and within municipalities where it provides contract services. Municipal law enforcement is responsible for the Trail within their boundaries. Ward said the most recent incidence of crime on the Trail was in St. Petersburg. A teenager who robbed two people in February was arrested in Georgia March 6. We need a better way to monitor what is happening on the Trail, said Julie Ward Bujalski, Dunedin commissioner. Wengay Newton, who serves on the St. Petersburg Council, asked if surveillance cameras purchased for use during the Republican National Convention could be used. He said he had never seen a volunteer ranger on the Trail, which runs right behind my house. He suggested that maybe more served in northern parts of the county, which Bujalski refuted. Theyre not in north county, she said. Id like to know where they are at, Newton said. Tarpon Springs Mayor David Archie said the Rangers werent active in Tarpon Springs, although the citys police department takes a proactive approach to lawlessness where the Trail is inside its borders. He suggested becoming more active in recruiting for more volunteer Rangers. We know 97 are out there, but where are they, he said. One of the most important parts of utilization of that trail is safety, he said. Bujalski suggested that the MPO find out how many Rangers are needed. Once the need is established, work could progress on finding a way to fill the positions. MPO Chair Karen Seel suggested that the MPO appoint members to serve on the Security Task Force. Bujalski, Newton and Councilmember Doreen HockDiPolito volunteered. In other business, the MPO: Heard a report from Gary Tait on the Teen Drivers Safety Education Program. Head a report on the preliminary design and environmental process for replacement of the Dunedin Causeway Bridge. A presentation is scheduled to take place at a Dunedin Commission meeting in April. Approved the Congestion Management Process policies and procedures manual. Approved the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Goals, Objectives and Policies. Approved the draft Unified Planning Work Program Approved rescinding co-payment increases for the Transportation Disadvantage Program Discussed making an application for a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant to complete the northern loop of the Pinellas Trail. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERSarah Ward, MPO interim executive director, talks about the role of volunteer Pinellas Trail Rangers during the March 12 meeting. MPO, from page 1Asale of commercial or secondary properties the same as it does for residential property. Pinellas has 50,000 subsidized NFIP policies, more than any other county in the nation. On his first day in office, new District 13 Rep. David Jolly released a statement about the U.S. Senate passing the House proposal to reform the Biggert-Waters act. Pinellas County families deserve real, long-term solutions to give certainty and peace of mind to homeowners while doing more than simply delaying an unworkable law, Jolly said. Thats exactly what this flood insurance reform bill does. By reforming the flood insurance program, the House and Senate have taken major steps to cap premium increases, provide certainty to homeowners, ensure stability to local economies and place the flood insurance program on the path to sustainability. I applaud the Senate for quickly passing this legislation and helping provide desperately-needed relief for Floridas families and businesses. BILL, from page 1A 12th annual French Market in Largo pulls record crowds By BRIAN GOFFLARGO The success of the 12th annual French Market in Largo March 15 could be measured simply by the traffic jam around the location and the cars circling the parking lot, waiting for a spot to open up. Julie Papalardo, who operates Julies Cottage of Provence on Indian Rocks Road in the Anona district, organizes the market every year. She was well aware of the crowds this year. This is the biggest by far, she said. The crowds have been great, they showed up early, and of course, it is a nice day for it. Papalardo said the market couldnt get much bigger. Weve maxed out the space, she said. Im concerned that when people drive by they might not come in because of all the traffic, but thats a good problem to have, isnt it? Papalardo said this year she attracted 35 vendors, the most in the 12-year history of the event. One of those vendors was Jenni Martin who sold art pieces. She takes part in the market every year. This is a great event, she said. The organizers of this show are very professional, and they are always looking to add to it and improve it in any way they can. Martin said besides being good for the vendors, the market also is good for the community. It is a big deal. Many of the same people come year after year, she said. They get to know the sellers, and people stand around and chat. It is a good community event where people can get out and meet others. Well definitely be back. We just love it here. One of those people who come back year after year is Shelly Craddock of Seminole. She calls it an important event for the area. It is the only one around here, she said. It is good for people like us who collect things for our house. We always manage to find something. Well be back again for sure. Craddocks husband Randy trailed behind carrying part of the days booty: a globe. We have three of these now, he said. Im looking around here, and I notice it is getting bigger and bigger. All I can say is bring cash! Nearby, looking over some art, was Franchy Fenten. Visiting from Connecticut, she found the market because a friend knew about it. She was pleased. This is great. It is all about the community getting together, she said. Look around you, it is only 10 a.m. on a Saturday morning, and people are all over the place. There are amazing artists here. I like what I see. There are so many things that are homemade; this is so eclectic. Another shopper, Carmen Bender of St. Petersburg, is another one of those who come to the market every year. She likes what is different about it. They are so helpful here, she said. There is always somebody asking you if they can help. They even help you bring your things to the car. Bender also was pleased with the variety of things to see and buy. It is very unique here. There are so many things you cant buy in stores, she said. There is a variety of jewelry and fresh flowers. It is all unique. I have come here many times and Ill be back again for sure. Words like that are music to the ears of organizer Papalardo, looking again at the crowds of people arriving to browse and buy. She said of course she would do it again next year. As long as the people come and enjoy it, well keep doing it, she said.

At left, Carmen Bender of St. Petersburg, left, shows off some of her purchases to market organizer Julie Papalardo. in Gainesville, but theyre very specific to Central Florida, McFall said. New customer, Delalle Alexander of Clearwater Beach, browsed from shelves of seedlings March 14, selecting new plants to grow. Her garden only began to thrive last month; she failed to grow anything last year. But McFall taught her how to grow a better garden. Her new tomatoes are still green, Alexander said. But they look happy, she said, explaining that shes also growing radishes, parsley and eggplant. They all seem like theyre happy plants. I havent eaten any yet, other than the parsley. Happy plants are what McFall is all about. She spends much of her days away from her garden, giving talks to various social groups, at preschools, senior centers, churches and doctors offices. If anybody wants me to come talk about organics, I will do so, and I love it, she said, adding that she doesnt require a fee. Because people need to know, and thats my purpose: to educate people.A broken systemPeople always ask McFall what she does to keep the bugs away. But there arent any bugs in her garden. The reason is simple. Healthy plants dont get bugs, she said. Todays conventional fertilizers give plants three minerals: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, ingredients that can be used to make bombs. We need 90 minerals in the soil to have healthy soil, McFall explained. Without more minerals, the resulting plants are stressed and unhealthy. The first thing Mother Nature does is sends in the bugs: Take out those unhealthy plants! Because were supposed to get our minerals from our food, McFall said. Scientifically, a healthy plant with no stress becomes a complex carbohydrate. A stressed plant one growing in the wrong season with the wrong amount of water or sunlight and without proper nutrients turns into a simple sugar. The bugs gravitate to simple sugars like candy, McFall said. To combat the bugs, pesticides were developed. So now we have weak and unhealthy plants covered with poison, McFall said. So then Mother Nature sends in the molds, the mildews, the funguses, the diseases, the weeds. Take out those unhealthy plants! Plants are supposed to develop their own probiotics and immunities, but pesticides kill those too, allowing unhealthy organisms to grow in their wake. Of course, the pesticides themselves are bad for humans to consume. McFall points customers to the Dirty Dozen, a list of the fruits and vegetables that are proven to contain the most pesticides, 67 toxins on every one of them, McFall said. Avoiding those toxins is the No. 1 reason to eat organic produce. A lot of people tell me, I cant afford to buy all organic. And I tell them, You cant afford not to, because youre going to pay the farmer now or youre going to pay the doctor later. And its going to be less painful and less expensive to pay the farmer now, McFall said. And if you know how, its easiest to grow your own produce. When you grow your own, not only are you keeping the herbicides and pesticides out, but youre making sure that youre putting the minerals in that need to be in the soil to have healthy plants and to have healthy bodies, McFall said. Plant magicMcFall grew up on an organic farm in Michigan. In the 1960s, the family grew or raised all their own food: meats, fruits and vegetables. We canned, and every Saturday we baked whatever breads, pies, cookies, cakes we needed for the week, so we ate really, really good, McFall said. She bought the 10 acres from her parents in 1986 and began her edible landscaping company. When she moved to Tampa in 2005, however, she discovered that her expertise didnt carry over exactly. Her first two gardens were miserable failures, she said. When she moved to a tiny plot in Clearwater, she tried again, this time with lots more success. She grew herbs and vegetables and cultivated more than 40 fruit-bearing plants. When people would come and look at my gardens, they would walk around and go, You cant grow gardens like this in Florida. You must be using magic, McFall said. Accordingly, the four plant food products Organic Living sells are called Magic Nos. 1 through 4, in order of importance. The first provides the soil with 91 minerals, mined from ancient seabeds in Nevada. No. 2 provides the beneficial microorganisms the plants need to thrive. You create a living community with the microorganisms and the worms and the insects and the plants, and you dont get bugs, and you dont get disease, McFall said. You get nutrient-dense, healthy plants. Magic No. 3 was developed out of a specific desire to grow a plethora of tomatoes, as is easy to do in many northern areas. McFall discovered that tomatoes needed a lower pH and even more nutrients. So the third plant food is made out of bat guano, blood meal and worm castings. Magic No. 4 is called biochar, a one-time application made from the Mayan technique of burning wood into charcoal and mixing it with organic compost. McFall keeps an ongoing experiment to compare the difference between a plant grown with her plant food and one without. The plant fed properly always thrives, grows bigger and produces more fruit, she said. Thats why I teach people to grow their own, because they can. Its totally doable, McFall said. There is work involved, there is money involved. Theres an investment to make. At the same time, its an investment in your future. For her own future, McFall is looking to move into the property next to her storefront and from there grow even more gardens. She wants to clear the back of her current property, plant a food forest and run a co-op through which people can buy shares and pick up produce every week. She said she thinks her message, her ongoing mission, is having an impact in the community. Organic Livings email list is more than 2,000 strong, and theyre all regular customers, she said. Ive had people tell me that Ive changed their lives (and) their health, she said. They keep coming back. And they bring people with them. She finds her work very rewarding because she can say she is changing lives, one family at a time. Organic Living hosts regular workshops on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m. Most are free. A schedule of upcoming workshops, along with more gardening information, is available at the business website, www.organiclivingforall.com. McFall also is available to give talks on organic gardening. Call 324-4435. DOWNTOWN, from page 1Abegan more than a year ago. Commissioners debated only one of the four incentives, one for businesses within specified industries that move to the district and create jobs that pay 115 percent of the countys annual average wage. Those who qualify could apply for a grant paid over five years and capped at $10,000 per job or $50,000 per year for all jobs created. Under the proposed measure, grants also would be given for each new residential unit and for the improvement or construction of a minimum of 15,000 square feet of office space. The final incentive brings the district in line with the rest of the city, offering $200 to cover the permitting and planning fees associated with the construction of new monument signs. Since the city commissioners first reading Oct. 1, the measures have been approved by Pinellas Planning Council as well as county commissioner. Brydon said her team was excited to be able to offer those grants to businesses. Full time staff considered for parkFriends of Largo Nature Parks President Pat Edmond made a plea that commissioners begin funding at least one full-time staff person at McGough Nature Park. We could certainly use those additional hours, she said. Mayor Pat Gerard echoed her request later in the meeting, explaining that the volunteers had proven themselves by stepping up to fill the gap in funding. Theyve been amazing, she said. City Manager Mac Craig said staff already was looking into funding a full-time position within next years budget. We will be bringing you a prioritized list of all the departments and what they want and what we think we can afford, he said. We will include someone from parks in there. In other business, commissioners: passed the final reading of an ordinance prohibiting smoking in outdoor park structures honored police and fire annual awards recipients, see page 3A began the process of annexing 12 properties.

The Florida House Finance & Tax Subcommittee introduced a $400 million motor vehicle fee reduction as part of a priority tax cut package March 13. The same day, the Senate Committee on Appropriations unanimously approved Senate Bill 156, Motor Vehicle License Taxes. Senate Bill 156 reduces certain annual fees paid to register a motor vehicle to the amount paid prior to 2009. Based on the latest estimates, the bill reduces fees by $395 million, according to a Senate press release. Annual vehicle registration fees went up in 2009, when state general revenue collections declined more than 22 percent from their high in 2005-2006. According to a press release from the House, if the bill passes, registration costs would be reduced by $25.05 for heavy weight vehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles, and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. The House proposal constitutes $309 million in tax relief in fiscal year 201415, and $395 million on an annual basis. These reductions are part of the proposed $500 million tax cut, which is the largest tax and fee cut of its kind in over a decade, according to House officials.Pinellas County tax collector takes actionIn a proactive effort, Tax Collector Diane Nelson announced March 12 that she is removing the two-year renewal option from motor vehicle renewal notices. If this bill passes, I want to give Pinellas County residents the opportunity to take advantage of the savings it will offer, Nelson said in a press release. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the pending legislation and potential savings. In 2013, 9 percent of Pinellas County residents took advantage of the biennial registration. If this bill passes with a conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration, Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. Residents can still renew their registrations for two years. They need to write two year renewal on their registration renewal return card and double the amount to be paid. There is no cost advantage with two-year registration renewals, they are offered as a matter of convenience, Nelson said. For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com. Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson is taking proactive measures in anticipation of the Florida Legislature passing a bill to reduce motor vehicle renewal fees.County to answer budget questions at eTownHallPinellas County commissioners and the county administrator will answer budget questions Wednesday, April 9, 7 to 8 p.m., at Pinellas Countys 2015 eTownHall public meeting.

During the eTownHall, residents can pose questions related to their own concerns about property taxes and the general fund, and find out about plans for the future. As county leaders work on a strategic direction for the future, citizens are asked to share their own vision for the community and of Pinellas County as a whole. This is the stage in the budget process where the commissioners want our residents involved and have their priorities discussed, said Tim Closterman, Pinellas County communications director. By putting the public meeting online and allowing people the opportunity to answer questions through our blog or Twitter, all of our residents have the ability to be involved in shaping the future of the community. There are five ways to participate in the eTownHall: 1. Be part of the live audience. The live event will be held at St. Petersburg College Seminole campus at 9200 113th St. N in Seminole. The commissioners and county administrator will be meeting with residents from 5:30 to 7 p.m. 2. Watch it live and blog on www.pinellascounty.org/eTownHall.

Congressman David Jolly was officially sworn in as the newest member of the House the afternoon of March 13. Jolly, 41, a Republican, defeated Democrat Alex Sink, 65, and Libertarian Marcus Overby, 27, in a special election March 11. Jolly received 48.44 percent of 184,045 votes cast. Sink received 46.55 percent and Overby with 4.84 percent, according to final unofficial results posted after the Canvassing Board met March 14. Forty percent of registered voters within District 13, which includes all of Pinellas with the exception of a few precincts in north and south county, took part in the election. Jolly released a transcript of his first speech made on the floor of the U.S. House. He thanked his new colleagues and the people in District 13. And to the people of Floridas 13th Congressional District, I want to say thank you today for giving me a remarkable life opportunity: the opportunity to serve, Jolly said. For my new colleagues, I simply want you to know two things about this new member. First, I believe in this institution: the peoples House. I believe in all that is good and right about this institution; the opportunity that this institution has to make our nation better; to direct our nation down the right path; to solve problems for all of us and secure for every American for all of us the sacred blessings of liberty. The second thing Id like you to know about this new congressman is I believe in civility. I had the wonderful opportunity to work for a man with whom you each served and left an indelible legacy in this House, one of civility. We are all elected to fight for our communities; to fight for our constituents. We are elected to fight for our convictions and for the causes we believe in. But, it is a fight for the future of our country. It is not a fight against each other. I know that we have had a nationally watched race. That race is now over. And now it is time for me as a member of Congress and of this body to join with each of you to follow in the footsteps that you have taken in serving your community as I begin to serve mine. You have my commitment today to work with each and every one of you. I look forward to it. Jolly will serve an eight-month term. He is completing the term left vacant when former Rep. C.W. BillYoung died Oct. 18. Young served the people of Pinellas County in the House for nearly 43 years. 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. Two Republicans, John-Michael Fleig of St. Pete Beach and Frederick Preston Thomson of Clearwater are listed active as are Democrat Donald Warren Hackett Jr. of Largo and independent Michael S.

He graduated from Pasco High School in 1990 and received a bachelor of arts degree in history from Emory College in Atlanta, Ga., in 1994 and Juris Doctor Cum Laude from George Mason University of Law in Arlington, Va., in 2001.

That is what all the construction is about on the Holiday Inn Harbourside property. The lazy river will be part of a new water park being built on the land. There is plenty of work that will be done according to Joe Lawlor, the hotels general manager. Were laying the foundation right now, he said. Soon you will see them assembling the large water slide and then the lazy river will run through the area. It will probably take a few more weeks. Lawlor said the hotel brass has been considering adding the water park for some time. It just seemed like the right time to do it, he said. We think there will be a demand for it. Several hotels in Florida have built water parks and we have clients now that are pretty excited about it. Lawlor, who has been the general manager of the hotel for the past 20 years, said the total cost of the project hasnt been determined yet. The final aspects of the job are still being finalized, he said. The addition of the water park is welcome news to IRB officials. City Manager Gregg Mims said it will help both the city, in terms of taxes, and the local businesses. It is all good for the restaurants and gift shops, he said. It will help businesses throughout the entire city and especially those in the Narrows Business District. There are multiple businesses that will benefit. The news doesnt stop there however. The owner of the Holiday Inn, Jeff Keierleber, who is based out of Wisconsin and has a home on Clearwater Beach, seems ready to move forward with the long-awaited expansion of the hotel itself. For some time plans have called for the addition of 100 new rooms to be built alongside the new water park in a building separate from the main structure. Lawlor said the prep work is nearly finished. The last of the pilings for the new structure are nearly all in, he said. We wanted to get the pilings done because of the building of the water park it seemed like the smart thing to do. The building is in the planning stages but no date has been set to break ground. The new rooms could be configured as separate rooms or suites. Lawlor said once the expansion is finished there will be new jobs created at the hotel, although he didnt know how many. Mims said the final permits for the expansion should be issued shortly. In the meantime he said the expansion will greatly benefit the city. There will be more lodging taxes and an increase in the ad valorem taxes, he said. The plan for the expansion was approved many, many years ago but sat idle because of the economy. All the plans have been approved and the hotel structure will be permitted any day now. While Lawlor couldnt say when the groundbreaking will take place for the hotel expansion, he was able to pinpoint the completion date of the new water park. I would say some time in July based on the current schedule that is in place, he said. and see people enjoying themselves and what we prepare for them. The Park Street site has a notorious past. The Spanish Caribbean building was built in 1924 by developer Walter Fuller, also the designer. Originally called the Gangplank, it was one of St. Petersburgs first nightclubs. Gangster Al Capone was one of its owners. During prohibition, the nightclub was conveniently located near the water to facilitate deliveries via boat from local bootleggers.New BNI chapter formingCLEARWATER BNI, a networking organization specializing in the exchange of qualified business referrals among members, is opening a new chapter in Clearwater.

The more you learn to better understand this disease will help in how you communicate with your loved ones. As tempting as it might be to say, "Mom/Dad, you just said that," this is not helpful. If his/her statement seems to beg for a response, just say, "Oh, OK, Mom/Dad," or "Thanks for telling me," in a positive way, and move onto something else. When you remind him/her they are repeating themselves, what you're really doing is lowering their selfesteem. It is best not to make a person with Alzheimer's disease feel impaired or ashamed. Try to respond in a positive manner, directing conversation to focus on a memory topic they are still familiar with, thereby supporting their self worth. C aring for a person with dementia is stressful. Seeking the help of support groups, and finding a responsible caregiver who can give you a break when needed is important. It is one thing to finally realize someone close to you has Alzheimers. Its a completely different thing to accept that fact. C omfort Keepers provides our caregivers with extensive, hands-on training, which includes preparing them to care for those with Alzheimers disease and dementia. Comfort Keepers in-home care services are available in all of Pinellas County. Loved ones who need special Alzheimers care can benefit from Comfort Keepers services because the caregivers are trained to address the needs of people from early onset to late stages of dementia and Alzheimers.

According to the unofficial results posted on the Supervisor of Elections website election night, Michael Mike Petruccelli defeated Diantha Schear by only two votes. Petruccelli received 315 votes, 32.81 percent. Diantha Schear brought in 313 votes, 32.60 percent. A third candidate, Patrick Soranno garnered 332 votes, 34.62 percent. Soranno will fill one of two open slots. Voters were asked to choose two of three new names as replacements for retiring Indian Shores Councilors Carole Irelan and Steve Sutch. Nearly 51 percent of the towns 1,190 registered voters took part in the election. Pinellas County Elections Administrator Nancy Whitlock said state law requires a machine recount when a candidate is defeated by less than 0.5 percent. In races, with a difference of a 0.25 percent a manual recount is required. The Elections Office announced March 12 that the Canvassing Board would conduct a machine recount and a manual recount for the town of Indian Shores. Results of those counts done March 14 showed a difference of only one vote with Petruccelli still in the lead, 315 to 314. Petruccelli and Soranno will be sworn in at 6 p.m. March 25, according to Indian Shores Deputy Clerk Elaine Jackson. Whitlock explained the machine recount process Friday afternoon. The ballots are processed on the same-type machine used the night of the election. Ballots that were scanned using a precinct scanner are processed again, recounted, using a precinct scanner. Mail ballots are processed a second time using a high-speed M650 scanner. The Canvassing Board manually checks ballots that are out stacked, which happens with blanks or, in the case of Indian Shores where two votes were allowed, ballots with votes for more than two, an over-vote, and ballots with less votes than allowed. The Canvassing Board found 336 under-votes during the manual recount. The Canvassing Board also canvassed provisional and write-in votes and certified unofficial results, which will be certified March 21, after the 10-day period for overseas ballots has passed. Whitlock said no overseas ballots are expected for the Indian Shores election. For more election information, visit votepinellas.com.

Soranno won the other seat. The results wont be official until March 21.

The program requires a foster application and approval. All foster care parents are required to complete the volunteer orientation class and foster training. The next training session will be presented Thursday, March 20, at the Pinellas County Animal Services shelter, 12450 Ulmerton Road. Volunteer orientation class will begin at 2 p.m., and foster training immediately follows at 4 p.m. Some of the animals that will benefit from the program include puppies and kittens too young for adoption, those recovering from surgery or illness, senior pets that need to be out of a shelter environment, dogs that have been on the adoption list for an extended period, and pets requiring socialization skills that can only be learned in a home environment. Volunteers interested in becoming a foster parent will work directly with the adoption coordinator and the medical staff. The foster care training will provide potential foster parents with basic animal cleaning and feeding tips, information on feline upper respiratory infection and the shelters emergency procedures. To be part of the foster care team, participants must possess: Concern for the welfare of the animals and compassion to special needs animals Commitment to follow all foster policies and directives as required by the adoption coordinator A valid drivers license and vehicle to transport foster animals to and from shelter Willingness to attend a foster meeting every six months at the shelter In 2013, Pinellas County Animal Services fostered 1,096 animals that needed additional time and care.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, March 20, 2014We keep hearing about apps. This is short for applications, which is a synonym for useful tools. Many apps belong to smart phones. These apps do everything from summoning the rescue squad to performing brain surgery. A global positioning app can identify the location of every hardware store in Lafayette, La., was induckted (bad joke) into the hardware industry. One of the app-happy things coming down the pipeline is the super-connected house. This will be a home in which humans are necessary only to press a remote device containing 138 buttons. Each button will trigger a different app that will perform a useful chore. Such as turning on the TV to CNN so that we can keep close track of whether Justin Bieber has been arrested in the Ukraine for drinking grappa with a Crimean transvestite. Minor connected-home apps have been available for years. They include TV remotes, light bulbs that switch on at dusk, garage doors triggered by your cars headlights and electric food cookers that turn off as soon as the pot roast resembles a chunk of granite. For decades, pre-set bedside alarm clocks have awakened us to the music of Brahms or Mick Jagger. And so on. But if recent technology reports are correct, we aint seen nuthin yet. Before long Mr. and Mrs. Erg and their teen-age twins will leave the house each morning confident that their home is fully connected and therefore protected. Every two hours the back door will open and let Osgood the Great Dane into the back yard. A recorded voice will summon him to come back in. When the postperson arrives with the mail, a camera inside the mailbox will scan each item and transmit its nature and importance to the adult Ergs. If a stranger approaches the house, another camera will take his/her picture and send it to the local police station. There, a computer will plug the mug shot into an international photo file to reveal if the stranger is a member of the dreaded Hamster Cartel that kidnaps infant hamsters and sells them to perverts in Arkansas. Incoming landline phone calls will be relayed immediately to all four Ergs as voice mail for their cellphones. Every room in the Erg house is equipped with a thermostat, a smoke alarm, a camera and an electric motion sensor. If a mouse, rat or cockroach is detected anywhere in the house, the varmint is tracked to its home base and destroyed by infrared radioactive drones piloted by atomic bug-zappers. Before you and I install any of these new devices in our super-connected homes, we should think about the end result they may produce. It is this: a race of humans who seldom think, move, worry, decide or breathe on their own. Thanks to technology, everything will be done for us. Gizmos will awaken us each morning. They will choose our clothing for the day, and lay it out on the bed, where magic extender arms and fingers will assist us in dressing. In the kitchen or dining area, a pre-selected breakfast will await. On the radio or TV, a news program (whose content will conform to our socio-economic-political leanings) will bring us up to date on the waiting world. Before we depart for work, school or country club, the click of a few buttons on the Family Remote will assure that our home is transformed into an impregnable, super-safe fortress. In the evening, these processes are reversed. There will be awkward moments, of course. When teen-age Eddie Erg and his girl friend go up to his bedroom for an hour of afternoon delight, an Erotic-Warning sensor which Eddie has forgotten to disarm will send a message to his parents: Statutory rape or unwanted pregnancy alert is now in force. Please advise. If Eddies sister Ramona neglects to do her homework each night, an electronic monitor will disable her cellphone, laptop and the ignition to her car. And so on. The super-connected house may make George Orwells Big Brother scenarios seem like Mardi Gras. In exchange for relieving us of our bothersome daily chores, technology may create tailor-made prisons out of our own homes. We will be well on our way to total AI (artificial intelligence) and its inevitable goal: human redundancy. Then again, I could be dead wrong. Many experts predicted that email and Facebook would bring an end to civilized conversation. But all around me I see people squinting at their iPhones and swapping messages with friends next door or at another table in the very same restaurant. If thats not verbal intimacy, I dont know what is.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

To applaud commissioners you cant vote for. To attack Belleair Country Club members who are residents. And to say you are victims? Huh? You dont live here, dont vote here. But you demand to have a say. Have you looked at the Belleview Biltmore building, read the numerous articles and editorials written about the building? It seems logical to most that the building is beyond repair. Yet you presume to tell the good people of Belleair that they are wrong. That their elected officials are wrong. Amazing. You basically have as much right to have a say in any issue in Florida as I would have in Chicago. None. You are not a resident. You are a visitor. Bring Belleair back to being synonymous with the home of the Belleair Biltmore. Is that really what you think? Dont you think the residents of Belleair and the members of the Belleair Country Club have a more vested interest in what happens in their community than a seasonal visitor from Chicago? The condescending tone of your letter is what frustrates those of us who call Florida our home. Full time. We grow tired of being told how we dont do the things the right way in Florida. I am sure that Chicago has many issues of its own that you can take a stand on. Leave local issues to local people and their representatives. Oh well. It will be getting warm in Chicago soon. Enjoy your summer. I am sure Belleair will survive just fine without your input. John Brandt Treasure IslandA better solution: Preserve the BiltmoreEditor: This letter is intended to convey some observations regarding recent events in the process of determining the fate of the property now occupied by the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. The controversial RM10 proposal that was introduced for consideration by the Town Commission a few weeks ago was offered originally to protect the Town from being overbuilt. It would limit residential construction to 10 units per acre. However, potential developers of the hotel property seized upon the height provision in RM10 as the necessary authority to build 80 feet high condominium buildings 40 feet above the tree canopy to provide a view of the water and justify the high end prices required to make the project profitable. So, in the end, the choice for the town is relatively simple: a restored hotel or twin tower, to accommodate about 130 condominiums) reaching at least 40 feet above the tree line, shattering forever the park-like atmosphere of the RPD. The addition of another 160 housing units the developer plans to build about 130 condominiums and 32 townhouses can only further depress property values in Belleair, certainly in the RPD, and probably in the rest of the town through a domino effect. As the Towns population ages, residents will look for opportunities to downsize in the new development, vacating single-family homes, and creating another downward pressure on residential property prices. Adding more residential units to an already depressed market can only have a negative impact on real property values. With a fully restored hotel, no one gets hurt, and the park-like atmosphere of the RPD would remain intact. Regarding the current condition of the hotel, none of us should be considered blameless. As residents and taxpayers, we should have been more insistent that the town aggressively enforce the specific requirement of the towns Comprehensive Plan to preserve the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. As our elected representatives, commission members should have been more mindful of that obligation. In any event, our combined neglect and the present condition of the hotel should not be used as an excuse to avoid the towns duty to preserve the hotel. That obligation is undiminished and ongoing. In the last month, I have knocked on the doors or rung the doorbells of close to 300 Belleair residences and spoken with more than 100 residents. Only two openly opposed the restoration of the hotel. Some made no definitive comment; but a clear majority expressed their support for restoring the Biltmore. One of those residents spoke with a particular passion as she described her frustration, exasperation, impatience and anger about the loss of income to the town since the Hotel closed, the new fees that have resulted and her general dissatisfaction with the lack of definitive action regarding the future of the property. However, her last comment was a familiar one: I hope they find a way to save it. I have not heard a single resident of Belleair express a preference for two high-rise condominium towers stretching well above the tree line on the highest point in the town over a restored, historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Jim Betts BelleairDont print propaganda about marijuanaEditor: I opened your paper to find an article that was quite disturbing to me regarding a Letter to the Editor on why marijuana should not be legalized. I would first like to state that it is poor judgment on your organization to post such outright lies and incorrect information from a viewpoint of a reader. Every item that was covered had incorrect data or what I call lies. The data released is nothing more than unsubstantiated fear tactics used by prohibitionists to scare children. The proven facts are that cannabis used as medicine works. If your paper is unable to research the articles and publish facts you might as well just close your doors now because no one will trust the information you print. Please be mindful of this the next time you choose to publish propaganda instead of facts. Tom Shirra St. PetersburgJumping the gun on fire stationEditor: It was with great regret that I read the article Bluffs hopes high for fire station in the Feb. 27 Belleair Bee. I thought this issue was long dead. How can anyone who went through the debacle of the Bluffs firefighter pension payout battle, which cost Bluffs taxpayers and the town plenty, have the audacity to propose a $3 million fire station when the current arrangement is working just fine. The thing that is most irritating about this proposal is that the people living adjacent to the site have not been considered. Placing a fire station in the midst of an inherently residential neighborhood makes no sense to me or anyone I have spoken to. Perhaps it would be wise to call a meeting of area residents to see how they feel about the constant noise of sirens at very close range and the plummeting property values this will cause. Id be willing to bet that no one who is proposing this facility lives within hearing range. It would be wise to see what the people who will be most affected by this proposal think before jumping the gun on this one. Lori Spence Belleair BluffsCommunity comes together at Pow WowThank you to all the Seminole city employees, city volunteers, school, business, church and civic groups and Sheriff deputies for a safe, successful and special family friendly 2014 Seminole Pow Wow Festival and Parade. Our community coming together, our citizens, parents, grandparents, kids, and friends were all having good wholesome fun. Hundreds of people marching, walking, running, waving, twirling, strutting and riding along the one mile parade route; enjoying the midway carnival ride, games and food; cheering teams participating in the fire-truck pull; listening to varied types of entertainment; watching a fireworks spectacular that concluded a crystal clear and sunny weekend. All these, in my opinion, were some of the many indications of a likeable, livable and loveable city that I am very happy to call home.

I am an American (Seppo = septic tank = Yank), which in itself is OK in Oz, but I sound like a Brit (Pom), which is not! I learned more strine for idiot than I care to remember or indeed recall in a family magazine, but drongo, nong, raw prawn, drop-kick, and buttoned up the pack are just a few. Maybe I should not have answered, Sorry, I didnt realize it was still a requirement to the Oz immigration officers question, Do you have a criminal record? My delightful niece invited me to a 3D something party. Beware, she said, of the two people there. One was her best friend, a real drink-on-a-stick, (beauty), but a terrible two-pot screamer, (easy drunk), resulting in the inevitable Technicolor yawn (throwing up) and its resultant pavement pizza, no translation necessary. The other was her who had a tendency to wear budgie smugglers (brief swimming trunks to pool parties). My brother and I took a trip into the black stump (boonies) to the gold-mining town of Kalgoorlie. There, in a bar, I met an ocker, almost untranslatable, but a cross between a redneck, miner and hobo. He was watching Lady Gaga on TV, and it struck me that the two more extremes of the human spectrum could hardly be imagined. Yes, he had been a miner of his youth, and he had worked flatout like a lizard drinking (very hard) all his life. Although he was always ready as a drovers dog for hard work, it was sometimes hard to come by scarcer than rocking-horse manure. So he was often forced to go walkabout (travel, not necessarily walking) and had waltzed his Matilda (rambled) as far as Queensland and New South Wales, including all over northern territories and South Australia. It was generally OK, but he didnt care for banana benders (Queenslanders) who he regarded as useful as a chocolate kettle. In the good old days, you could hitch a ride on the planes, which flew from mining camp to mining camp, transporting equipment and miners, usually a Fokker F27. But the worst words a rambling ocker could hear was that here was no room: Sorry, ocker, the Fokkers Chokker. He was relieved and couldnt bring himself to leave Kalgoorlie, so he would stay until he cashed in his superannuation, (i.e., until he passed on). Strine possesses some terminology that can be well adopted by other forms of English. For example, I read the headline: year-old hoon arrested in Joondalup; father also charged. A hoon is a person, usually young, who performs any dangerous maneuver with a car, including wheelies, speeding, road racing, use of horn, etc. Another headline: Secretary dobs on boss over call-girl rorts revealed the use of dob in, meaning to inform on, but usually in a positive way as in a whistle blower and rort a commonly used term for misuse of fraud or other forms of cheating. So if you intend to go to Oz, be prepared to strine. Be nice to the Qantas trolley dolly, (flight attendant) and the Woolworths check out chick. Get your Aussie salute (brushing away flies motion) ready. Perth, in western Australia, is a great place to live 10 million flies cant be wrong. Get ready to use diminutives and abbreviations. Stubbie = bottle of beer, tinnie = can of beer, Barbie = barbecue, etc. Call all redheads bluie, brush up on the only two regular greetings Gday, and Shell be all right, cobber, and your trip will be bonzer and shape up a beaut.

Levine is co-chair of the Preserving Our Future campaign. When finally completed, the campus will have a restored sanctuary, new chapel, expanded offices, and several remodeled common areas. Levine went on to say that when the project is complete, Temple Bnai Israel will have ensured that what was here for each of us, will also be here for the young families that will follow after us. The groundbreaking is a major celebration for the temple and is open to the entire community.

Just as in real life, some of us are born into relative prosperity and others into poverty. One in seven people go hungry. But hunger is not about too many people and too little food. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough food to feed everyone on earth. Hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources. The results are illiteracy, poverty, war and the inability of families to grow or buy food. Few experiences bring to life these inequalities more powerfully than an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet.Eckerd College announces upcoming events School notesFoundation hosts Career Education BreakfastLARGO The Pinellas Education Foundation hosted the 2014 Career Education Breakfast March 19 at the Achieva Conference Center in the Gus A.

Weekly themes provide different experiences for each camp. The offerings will include: Mini-Masters Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon or 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 4.5 to 5. Sizzlin Summer / Visual Art Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 6 to 10. Mural Madness Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 8 to 12. Arts in Motion Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 8 to 12. Art Squad Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 11 to 14. More is better, said Todd Still, director of youth education at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. This year the camp will offer programs for teens as well as separate Arts in Motion and Mural Madness Camps. Were trying to offer the breadth of programs that parents are looking for. Rebranding its summer camp programs as the Summer Art Academy, DFAC sought to reflect the quality of instruction that happens each week, with certified art instructors in most of the classrooms. Though we still refer to each week as a camp, parents agreed that the term academy better reflects how our offerings differ from many camps in the area, said Still. George Ann Bissett, the executive director of DFAC, feels the camps are growing because of the positive experience the children are having. Studies show that children who study art, end up doing better in all of their studies, Bissett said. So that makes our programs pretty popular with parents, too. Scholarships and after-care and lunch are available. Special March pricing is available through March 31 and early registration discounts end with an open house, set for Friday, April 25, 6 to 8 p.m. For information, call 298-3322 or visit www.dfac.org.Clearwater HS to stage NunsenseCLEARWATER Clearwater High School Performing Arts Department will present two encore performances of Nunsense on Thursday and Friday, March 20-21, 7:30 p.m., in the auditorium at the school at 540 S.

Imagine walking down the street from one end of your block to the other one. You saunter leisurely. No traffic hampers your stroll. The entire street is visible. There is another person all the way at the other end of the block. The two of you walk toward each other deliberately but unhurriedly. You eye the other person as you stroll, watching them grow as if out of the distance. The other person does the same to you. The two of you finally get to the middle but bizarrely, do not meet. Instead, you go to the left side of the street. The other person goes to the right side of the street. From this safe but baffling distance, the two of you walk in a wide circle. Then you head into a nearby house while the other person wheels around and heads back in the direction from which he came. Finally, pretend that the rest of us see this roundabout reunion only as a silent film. What should we make of it? What is the maritime counterpart? Along a particularly narrow stretch of the salty snaky river of sea we call the Intracoastal Waterway, two groups of dolphins headed toward each other. They were both nursery groups, so-called because they only included moms and kids from a quarter mile away. They have no idea that their narrow waterway was born of the same two forces that dictate their fortunes today, nature and mankind. Nature fashioned the barrier island that isolated the ICW from the Gulf of Mexico eons ago. But mankind started fixing it a hundred years ago. I have heard humanity called the naked ape. But I think a better nickname is the restless ape. One nursery group was mother-calf pair Valiant and her little boy Vidalia. They were heading north. A quarter mile up the way, another nursery was heading south. It was a quartet of two female friends and another mother-calf pair, Front Slash and her tiny Fairuz. Fairuz, which means turquoise in Arabic, was born last summer. Now it is entering the intoxicating phase we call Babys First Spring. At 9 months old, baby dolphins are deemed old enough (by mother) to play with a range of other dolphins, not just moms close associates. Sea school goes viral and such babies make the seas sparkle even more by their great enthusiastic animation. Capt. John Heidemann and I have studied the adults in these groups for 10 years. One of the many curiosities of that effort is something we might describe as the Cashier Effect. Consider how the cashier at your local grocery store sees the stores clientele. She or he undoubtedly recognizes regular customers by face, maybe even by name. Yet those same customers do not know each other. This can be hard for the cashier to grasp: What do you mean, they do not know each other? Between trying to get pictures of Fairuz, dashing around like any kid trying to get someone to play with it, I felt waves of the Cashier Effect. The two groups approached each other steadily but then did not really meet up. Instead, as in the above fable, they circled each other about 40 feet apart. Then Valiant and Vidalia went into a nearby cove to hunt. The quartet reversed course and headed by from whence they came. What was this about? Why had they bothered? Maybe the real question is, why did they come that close together only to never touch? When we first saw the dolphins, they were ahead in the distance. Both groups knew we were coming because the sound of our engine precedes us. It is as effective as an identifier as you phoning the person at the other end of the block and saying your name. The dolphins can make trade communications without the cell phone by sending their signature whistles into the gloom to announce their presence and identity. Whatever else they may be communicating remains debatable. But dolphins can vocalize to one another at distances far greater than the quarter mile between the nursery groups today. Unfortunately, we do not know if they were trading vocalizations (because the necessary sound-tracking equipment to hear dolphins when your boat engine is running is very expensive). But let us assume that they were communicating. Let us say they were calling back and forth until they came close enough to see each other in the gloom of estuary waters. But no closer. Why did they not approach and join into a single group, even for a moment? The calves did not play together. The moms did not swim side by side as companionable dolphins do. They simply came close for a moment and then continued on their separate ways. There are plenty of people living near you who use the same resources that you use. But you do not know them. They do not know you. Ever think about how universal that is?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Photo by ANN WEAVERCaught mid-chomp swallowing a fish, 3-year-old bottlenose dolphin Vidalia demonstrates his fledgling fish handling abilities. Dolphin calves like Vidalia that are injured as young calves stay closer to their moms longer and as a result postpone some of their lessons at sea school. But this picture shows that Vidalia is developmentally on schedule. Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver Start before dawn to catch baitFull moon tides and a couple of days of postcard perfect weather resulted in some memorable days fishing by the end of last week. Schools of redfish were grouped up tight on the low tides, and sea trout fed well on the high outgoing tides. Spanish mackerel and kingfish numbers are on the rise as we start to see more and more bait make its way into the area, and bonus fish like cobia and triple tail are becoming targetable when the weather is right. As early week stormy conditions fade back to beautiful days, its likely we wont see the same spring setbacks this week as weve seen with the past two cold fronts. Midto upper70-degree temperatures with a lot of sunshine should fast-track the bait right into our area. Whether you like to catch and fish with fresh bait or prefer using artificial lures, there is no doubt that when theres plenty of bait around the fish just feed better. If youre looking for a baitwell full of pilchards, you might be disappointed. However, there are enough of them around to make the effort. Pre-dawn starts are a must. Working bridge shadow lines in the dark will give you a chance at all kinds of fresh bait including pilchards, threadfins, ladyfish and shad. All are great baits this time of year. Although the live bait will account for some great fish right now, numbers still lie with the fresh cut bait. Chunks of ladyfish and cut threadfins have been working excellent for the reds and accounting for enough gator trout to think you could easily just fish cut bait. Low tides will have the fish sitting out on the edges of grass flats. Find the entry point and youll be in the fish. Work a top-water plug first thing in the morning and you will most likely find that entry point. Spoil islands are still producing good trout fishing. Afternoon high outgoing tides this week will be good. As the light begins to fade you can expect big trout to get hungry. Free-line or cork live pilchards or grass grunts on the tide swept corner of the islands and you could be fishing for a trout of a life time. We had multiple fish over 26 inches this past week. These big females are the spawning stock for our trout rich fishery and a healthy release is encouraged.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Visit www.TBNweekly.comSea turtle nesting season beginsMore sea turtles nest on Floridas sandy beaches than on any other U.S. coastline. Biologists at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission hope the 2014 nesting season that started March 1 will be as successful as others in recent years. Beginning this month, leatherback sea turtles emerge onto beaches to lay their eggs along Floridas Atlantic coast, from Broward to Brevard counties. A few months later, people in other coastal counties also may notice loggerhead and green sea turtle crawls, the distinctive line of tracks they leave behind in the sand. Three species of sea turtles nest in abundance on Florida beaches: leatherbacks, loggerheads and greens. Loggerheads are the most abundant, and approximately 90 percent of all nests for this species in the southeastern United States occur in Florida. Sea turtle biologists were surprised and pleased in 2013 when a record number of more than 36,000 green sea turtle nests were counted in Florida. The great news is that so many sea turtles nest on Florida beaches more than anywhere else in the United States, said Dr. Robbin Trindell, who is responsible for sea turtle management at the FWC. Florida had a record number of loggerhead nests in 2012, followed by a record number of green turtle nests in 2013. Typically, sea turtle nesting season runs from March through the end of October, but nesting continued well beyond that in 2013. Green turtles generally nest later than the other sea turtle species in Florida. FWC biologists would not be surprised if nesting season extends later into the fall again this year, and they caution beachgoers that marked nests on the beach may hatch well past the official end of nesting season in October. The actions that people take are critical to maintaining Floridas success with sea turtles, Trindell said. Remove chairs, canopies, boats and other items from the beach at night, because they block the movement of turtles and hatchings. Dont forget to turn off or shield lights on the beach, to prevent hatchlings from getting confused and going toward land instead of the salt water where they belong. In Florida, volunteers, who assist the FWCs researchers, document sea turtle landings on the beach. About 2,500 FWC-permitted volunteers regularly patrol more than 800 miles of sandy shoreline to identify, mark and protect sea turtle nests. They collect nesting data and also share their knowledge with beachgoers on how to help conserve sea turtles. Support Floridas sea turtles by purchasing the Helping Sea Turtles Survive license tag at BuyaPlate.com. Tag funds are spent on sea turtle research, rescue and conservation efforts.

LeeAccording to a biography provided by Bigg Time Entertainment, Jake E. Lee entered the world as Jakey Lou Williams. He was born and raised in West Virginia, but, with his father in the military, the family was constantly on the move. They eventually settled in San Diego, Calif. There, Lee and his sister took to the California culture and lifestyle. His mother saw his musical talent and convinced him to learn classical piano at an early age. It was Lees sister, however, who would introduce him to rock and roll. She let Lee listen to her favorite heavy metal and hard rock albums, exposing him to Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. The appeal was such that Lee soon switched to guitar as his instrument of choice. Lee founded his first band Teaser while still in high school. Playing the Southern California scene, he quickly attracted attention. In the coming years, he would play for Ratt and Rough Cutt and becameRed Dragon Cartel Largo Cultural Center welcomes Jake E.

His career took off in 1990 with the recording of his critically acclaimed, self-titled debut disc, which yielded such classics as Grammy Award-winning Walking In Memphis, Silver Thunderbird and True Companion.

A mainstay on classic rock radio with hits like One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, Move It On Over, Who Do You Love, Bad To The Bone, I Drink Alone, Get A Haircut and You Talk Too Much, the band has kept up a grinding pace performing for a loyal fan base the world over and, after 40 years, there is no sign of slowing down.

They will once again join forces with Nashville producer Tom Hambridge, who worked with the band on the critically acclaimed record South Michigan Avenue, a tribute to the Chicago blues label Chess Records.

He is best known for Year of the Cat which was released in 1976 and spawned two Top 20 hits, the title song and On the Border which became a million-selling record.

But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine the Worlds Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon, and Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard.DivergentGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zo Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer and Kate Winslet Director: Neil Burger Rated: PG-13 In a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before its too late.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.AnitaGenre: Documentary Cast: Anita Hill Director: Freida Mock Not rated An entire country watched transfixed as a poised, beautiful African-American woman in a blue dress sat before a Senate committee of 14 white men and with a clear, unwavering voice recounted the repeated acts of sexual harassment she had endured while working with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. That October day in 1991 Anita Hill, a bookish law professor from Oklahoma, was thrust onto the world stage and instantly became a celebrated, hated, venerated, and divisive figure. Anita Hills graphic testimony was a turning point for gender equality in the U.S. and ignited a political firestorm about sexual misconduct and power in the workplace that resonates still today. She has become an American icon, empowering millions of women and men around the world to stand up for equality and justice. Against a backdrop of sex, politics, and race, Anita reveals the intimate story of a woman who spoke truth to power. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock, the film is both a celebration of Anita Hills legacy and a rare glimpse into her private life with friends and family, many of whom were by her side that fateful day 22 years ago. Anita Hill courageously speaks openly and intimately for the first time about her experiences that led her to testify before the Senate and the obstacles she faced inOpening this weekend Cast: Thierry Lhermitte, Raphal Personnaz, Niels Arestrup and Julie Gayet Director: Bertrand Tavernier Not rated Alexandre Taillard de Vorms is tall and impressive, a man with style, attractive to women. He also happens to be the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the land of enlightenment: France. With his silver mane and tanned, athletic body, he stalks the world stage, from the floor of the United Nations in New York to the powder keg of Oubanga. There, he calls on the powerful and invokes the mighty to bring peace, to calm the trigger-happy, and to cement his aura of Nobel Peace Prize winnerin-waiting. Alexandre Taillard de Vorms is a force to be reckoned with, waging his own war backed up by the holy trinity of diplomatic concepts: legitimacy, lucidity and efficacy. He takes on American neo-cons, corrupt Russians and money-grabbing Chinese. Perhaps the world doesnt deserve Frances magnanimousness, but his art would be wasted if just restricted to home turf. Enter the young Arthur Vlaminck, graduate of the elite National School of Administration, who is hired as head of language at the foreign ministry. In other words, he is to write the ministers speeches. But he also has to learn to deal with the sensibilities of the boss and his entourage, and find his way creative career. Hoping to find clarity and new purpose as a writer, he holes up with his eccentric sister (Fallon Goodson) at the seaside home of their best friend (Catherine Keener). But as he disappears further into his own mind, reality begins to slip through his grasp. Featuring an award-winning ensemble, including David Straithairn and Alan Cumming, Maladies is a heartfelt but defiantly unconventional exploration of the creative mind.Nymphomaniac: Volume 1Genre: Drama Cast: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgrd, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier Director: Lars von Trier Not rated Nymphomaniac: Volume 1 is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgrd), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and youngadulthood (portrayed in flashback by newcomer Stacy Martin). The film also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma simply telling the truth. She also candidly discusses what happened to her life and work in the 22 years since.Blood TiesGenre: Crime and thriller Cast: Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Austin Williams, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana and James Caan Director: Guillaume Canet Rated: R It is New York, 1974, and 50year-old Chris has just been released on good behavior after several years in prison following a gangland murder. Waiting for him reluctantly outside the prison gates is his younger brother, Frank, a cop with a bright future. Chris and Frank have always been different, and their father, Leon, who has raised them alone, seems strangely to prefer Chris this, despite all his troubles. Yet blood ties are the ones that bind. Frank, hoping that his brother has changed, is willing to give him a chance; he shares his home, finds him a job, and helps him reconnect with his children and his ex-wife, Monica. But Chris past quickly catches up to him, and his descent back into a life of crime becomes inevitable. For Frank, this descent proves to be the last in a long line of betrayls, and after his brothers latest transgressions, he banishes him from his life. But its already too late; the brothers destiny will be bound, forever.The French MinisterGenre: Comedy Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark and Connie Nielsen.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

But just as he thinks he can influence the fate of the world, everything seems threatened by the inertia of the technocrats.Jodorowskys DuneGenre: Documentary Director: Frank Pavich Rated: PG-13 In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12-year-old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including HR Giger and Jean Moebius Giraud, Jodorowskys adaptation of Frank Herberts classic sci-fi novel Dune was poised to change cinema forever. For two years, Jodo and his team of spiritual warriors worked night and day on the massive task of creating the fabulous world of Dune, generating more than 3,000 storyboards, numerous paintings, incredible costumes, and an outrageous, moving and powerful script. In the words of Jodorowskys producer, Michel Seydoux, It should have been enough. But it wasnt. Through interviews with legends and luminaries including HR Giger, Gary Kurtz and Nicolas Winding Refn, and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky filmed over the course of three years, director Pavichs film featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodos mind-blowing psychedelic space opera (animated by Emmy Award nominated Syd Garon) finally unearths the full saga of The Greatest Movie Never Made.MaladiesGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: James Franco, Catherine Keener, Fallon Goodson, David Strathairn and Alan Cumming Director: Carter Not rated A daring new film from internationally acclaimed multimedia artist Carter, Maladies charts the struggles of an unstable former soap opera star (James Franco) in 1960s New York as he tries to restart his floundering

The tragic death of guitarist Randy Rhoads left a vacancy in Ozzy Osbournes band. According to Bigg Time Entertainment, Osbourne asked Jake to audition for his band. Jake knew that Rhoads shoes were hard to fill, but he believed he was able to handle the challenge. Osbourne auditioned around 500 other guitarists from around the world, but it was Lee who eventually got the spot. For the next four years, Lee recorded, wrote and toured with Osbourne. They released Bark at the Moon, which eventually went multi-platinum, and quickly quieted critics who said Rhoads could never be replaced. The Ultimate Sin album followed, which was another huge success for Osbourne. Osbourne and Lee split in the midst of Osbournes well-documented drug and alcohol periods. Although the official story is that Osbourne fired Lee, Bigg Time Entertainment states that the two remain good friends. Following his departure from Osbournes band, Lee took a sabbatical to spend time with his family. He turned down a number of job offers. Then, one day, he received a proposition he could not ignore. Ray Gillen, another former Black Sabbath lead singer, approached him with the idea of forming a blues-based metal band. Lee agreed, and the two soon recruited bassist Greg Chaisson and drummer Eric Singer. They called the band Badlands. Badlands self-titled debut album was released in 1989. It featured a mix of blues and hard rock, powered by hard-driving guitar riffs. The album earned critical acclaim as well as impressive sales. The band toured worldwide to support the album, and followed it up with Voodoo Highway. Health issues forced Gillen to leave the band and Lee also soon departed. For many years after Badlands, Lee largely remained out of the spotlight. In 1996, he released an instrumental album, A Fine Pink Mist, and in 2005 he released a blues album, Retraced. Working with Kevin Churko and Ron Mancuso in Las Vegas, Lees new band Red Dragon Cartel has Photos by JAY RICHMONDAt left, local artists Peter Smith and Lucy Monette of Safety Harbor, enjoy the good vibes and great beer at the fourth annual Dunedin Beerfest, celebrating American Craft Beer Wee, March 8 at Edgewater Park.

Artists vying for funds at this event include Robin Borland, Chad Mize, Tiffany Razzano with Wordier Than Thou and Ryan Swanson with The Urban Conga.

PETERSBURG The birth of photography turned the camera into a notebook of history especially when it came to battlefields and those in uniform. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is bringing that notebook of American military history to St. Petersburg with the opening of The American Soldier A Photographic Tribute. The exhibit opened March 18 and will run through July 13. The American Soldier is a dramatic exhibition of 116 wall-to-wall photographs capturing the essence of American soldiering for more than 150 years. The exhibition guides visitors through the Civil War, Spanish American War, Boxer Rebellion, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Afghanistan, and the streets of Baghdad. The exhibition captures the emotions of danger, frustration, humor, camaraderie, death and victory that American soldiers encountered in this odyssey through history. Arriving from the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum in Texas, space for the exhibit was an initial challenge, but the museum underwent interior renovations adding exhibit space to accommodate The American Soldier and enhance the guest experience. The arrival of this amazing exhibit is a major coup for St. Petersburg and the Museum of History, said Rui Farias in a press release. Farias is executive director at the museum. It compelled us to be creative and in the process, the redesign and remodeling of our interior exhibit space is energetic and inviting. This exhibit gives the Museum of History the opportunity to re-create itself as a cultural center. Our goal is to use art, photographs and artifacts to teach history. Cyma Rubin is the curator and producer of The American Soldier, as well as the curator of the highly successful exhibition, Capture the Moment The Pulitzer Prize Photographs. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is at 335 Second Ave. NE. Museum hours for the exhibit are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The art scenerecorded its eponymous first album for release on Frontiers Records. In addition to Lees guitar work, the band features Darren Smith on lead vocals, Jonus Fairley on drums, Ron Mancuso on bass. The album also features guest appearances from Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, Maria Brink from In this Moment and other all-star musicians.Eddie Trunk book signingThe Largo Cultural Center will host its first book signing on Friday, March 28, 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event will feature Eddie Trunk, author of the newly released Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Vol. 2. Trunks special appearance is part of the Jake E. Lees Red Dragon Cartel show at the Largo Cultural Center. Trunk also will emcee for the show. The book signing event is open to ticket holders to the concert. Trunk is a 30-year music industry veteran who has built a reputation for being one of the most respected personalities in the worlds of hard rock and heavy metal. He hosts Eddie Trunk Live, a weekly live music, talk and interview show on SiriusXM satellite radio Channel 39, which is branded Trunk Nation during his program. He is currently host and co-producer of the hit series That Metal Show, the longest-running program in the history of VH1 Classic. That Metal Show is seen around the world. Trunk has recently turned his attention to writing. In 2010, he released his first book Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal. The book was very well received by critics and fans alike. Last year, he finished work on the sequel, Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Vol. 2, which was released in late 2013. RED DRAGON, from page 1B

TORRES LARGO The funding to allow new economic development incentives for Largos downtown district passed through quickly March 18. The city now is one step closer to being the first in the Tampa Bay market to offer the unique incentives, Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon said. A resolution allowing the incentives will be up for the commissioners consideration April 1, she said. During that meeting, the city will appoint members to the newly established community development advisory board. Then the city will be able to accept applications for the new incentives, which are designed to encourage more infill housing, new mixed used development with office space and more jobs within the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District. Brydon said staff picked up on those three measures specifically, after seeing how the cities of Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach were able to promote growth within their redevelopment districts. It was obvious the success that they had with those, Brydon said. You can just see over the course of the last five to seven years, the growth was been phenomenal in those markets. The incentives tap into tax increment financing, generated through and within the redevelopment districts. The ordinance passed March 18 allows $80,000 of the districts budget to be set aside for these incentives. The process to create the new incentive programs Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESJai McFall of Organic Living, right, explains the different seeding plants she offers to customer Delalle Alexander of Clearwater Beach March 14.Jai McFall is on a mission to promote healthy, nutrient-rich food gardens By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The food from Jai McFalls garden, growing abundantly in front of her Largo store, doesnt look much like the produce offered in grocery stores. The plants that do look familiar taste different, stronger. But thats a good thing, McFall said. The nutrients she feeds the plants keeps them from getting gobbled up by bugs. The produce tastes better and is better for you because theyve been cared for properly. What we do is we build up soil and then we put minerals in it, because minerals are elements essential for life, and minerals are what gives food their flavor, she said. McFall calls herself an edible landscaper. Her business, Organic Living, has been based at 13064 Indian Rocks Road in Largo since last July. Through it, she teaches people the benefits of organic food and, more importantly, how to grow it in difficult Florida soil. From her own garden, McFall shows off easily recognized vegetables: eggplant, kale, tomatoes, cauliflower, Romaine lettuce and cayenne peppers. She explains why the arugula and oregano tastes so different and offers tastes of leaves: sorrell, Thai basil, tarragon, cilantro, Cuban oregano, fennel, tarragon, longevity spinach, Chinese chives, Okinawan spinach, Italian dandelion, bronze fennel, stevia and dill. Even the hibiscus and snapdragon flowers are edible. And all the plants are growing and thriving, without any pesticides. Everything I sell is specific to Central Florida.

By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER If all goes according to plan, the first meeting of the consolidated Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Pinellas Planning Council will take place in May. Gov. Rick Scott signed the MPOs reapportionment plan Feb. 13. At the March 12 meeting, the MPO discussed the steps needed to make the plan a reality. The first step is to amend the interlocal agreement between the Florida Department of Transportation, Pinellas County and municipal governments, and the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, followed by the appointment of 13 elected officials to serve on the unified board. Currently 11 officials serve on the MPO board. One new appointment will represent the beach communities and the other will represent the cities of Seminole, Gulfport, South Pasadena, Belleair, Belleair Shores and Gulfport. Members serving in the new board appointments would serve on a rotating basis. The Barrier Islands Government Council will make the beach appointments. The interlocal agreement would establish the process. MPO staff is working to get the item on member government agendas as quick as possible for approval of the amended interlocal See MPO, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERThe U.S. Senate passed a bill, 72-22, Thursday evening that should help curb massive flood insurance rate hikes on Pinellas County property owners. Sen. Bill Nelson said the legislation caps flood insurance rate increases to no more than 18 percent, while making FEMA responsible for finding ways to keep flood insurance affordable. Its not everything I wanted for homeowners, but its a significant protection from unconscionable rate hikes, Nelson said in an email statement. Nelson has been on the frontlines fighting to change the negative effects of reform for the National Flood Insurance Program. He was instrumental in getting the Senate to pass legislation in January to reverse some of the actions brought about by the implementation of Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012. The House passed its own bill March 4. Nelson said the bill passed by the Senate would have gone further than the House version passed March 13. But passage of the House bill Thursday was widely seen as the best course of action to give homeowners some form of immediate relief, he said. Many property owners with subsidized policies from the National Flood Insurance Program have suffered rate increases of 25 percent since provisions of BW-12 went into effect. Homeowners are unable to sell their homes due to exorbitant rates new property owners would have to pay. Gov. Rick Scott called the bills passage a victory for all Florida families who have been impacted by ongoing uncertainty and faced the possibility of paying devastating rate increases. Now, it is up to President Barack Obama to sign the legislation into law. Doug Izzo, who keeps up with government affairs for the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce, sent out an email summarizing the key features of House Bill 3370 shortly after it passed. The bill restores grandfathering. It repeals the requirement for an automatic rate hike when a home is sold or when an insurance policy lapses. It limits annual rate increases to 18 percent. It gives refunds to policyholders who bought pre-FIRM homes after July 6, 2012 and charged higher premiums. The bill ups funding for an affordability study from $750,000 to $3 million. It provides for long-term relief to NFIP by adding an annual surcharge of $25 for residential policies and $250 for commercial and secondary properties. The bill does not contain relief for commercial properties or for owners of second homes. It does not charge the measure for automatic rate hikes on severe loss properties. The legislation does delay rate increases triggered by TBN GRAPHICA bill promising to bring relief to those facing high flood insurance premiums is waiting for President Barack Obamas signature.

4A Largo Leader, March 20, 2014 agreement to be able to meet as the new board in May.Pinellas Trail safetyA good part of the March 12 meeting involved a discussion about safety on the Pinellas Trail. Members heard an overview of the Trail Security Task Force, a report on 2013 Trail incidents, Trail Rangers and an update on the use of surveillance cameras. The Pinellas Trail Security Task Force is an MPO advisory committee comprised of law enforcement personnel and Pinellas Countys Parks and Conservation Resources, Animal Services, Public Safety Services and Risk Management. Volunteer auxiliary rangers also are represented. The group meets quarterly to report incidents. MPO members expressed a desire for more information about the areas where the 97 active rangers serve along the trail. Currently, the volunteers have no specific assignment. Sarah Ward, MPO interim executive director, said the rangers are ambassadors along the Trail and other city parks. It is not their function to enforce, she said. Ken Welch, Pinellas County commissioner, wanted to know who was responsible for safety. The answer: Law enforcement is the responsibility of the local jurisdiction. For example, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office takes care of areas of Trail in unincorporated Pinellas and within municipalities where it provides contract services. Municipal law enforcement is responsible for the Trail within their boundaries. Ward said the most recent incidence of crime on the Trail was in St. Petersburg. A teenager who robbed two people in February was arrested in Georgia March 6. We need a better way to monitor what is happening on the Trail, said Julie Ward Bujalski, Dunedin commissioner. Wengay Newton, who serves on the St. Petersburg Council, asked if surveillance cameras purchased for use during the Republican National Convention could be used. He said he had never seen a volunteer ranger on the Trail, which runs right behind my house. He suggested that maybe more served in northern parts of the county, which Bujalski refuted. Theyre not in north county, she said. Id like to know where they are at, Newton said. Tarpon Springs Mayor David Archie said the Rangers werent active in Tarpon Springs, although the citys police department takes a proactive approach to lawlessness where the Trail is inside its borders. He suggested becoming more active in recruiting for more volunteer Rangers. We know 97 are out there, but where are they, he said. One of the most important parts of utilization of that trail is safety, he said. Bujalski suggested that the MPO find out how many Rangers are needed. Once the need is established, work could progress on finding a way to fill the positions. MPO Chair Karen Seel suggested that the MPO appoint members to serve on the Security Task Force. Bujalski, Newton and Councilmember Doreen HockDiPolito volunteered. In other business, the MPO: Heard a report from Gary Tait on the Teen Drivers Safety Education Program. Head a report on the preliminary design and environmental process for replacement of the Dunedin Causeway Bridge. A presentation is scheduled to take place at a Dunedin Commission meeting in April. Approved the Congestion Management Process policies and procedures manual. Approved the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Goals, Objectives and Policies. Approved the draft Unified Planning Work Program Approved rescinding co-payment increases for the Transportation Disadvantage Program Discussed making an application for a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant to complete the northern loop of the Pinellas Trail. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERSarah Ward, MPO interim executive director, talks about the role of volunteer Pinellas Trail Rangers during the March 12 meeting. MPO, from page 1Asale of commercial or secondary properties the same as it does for residential property. Pinellas has 50,000 subsidized NFIP policies, more than any other county in the nation. On his first day in office, new District 13 Rep. David Jolly released a statement about the U.S. Senate passing the House proposal to reform the Biggert-Waters act. Pinellas County families deserve real, long-term solutions to give certainty and peace of mind to homeowners while doing more than simply delaying an unworkable law, Jolly said. Thats exactly what this flood insurance reform bill does. By reforming the flood insurance program, the House and Senate have taken major steps to cap premium increases, provide certainty to homeowners, ensure stability to local economies and place the flood insurance program on the path to sustainability. I applaud the Senate for quickly passing this legislation and helping provide desperately-needed relief for Floridas families and businesses. BILL, from page 1A 12th annual French Market in Largo pulls record crowds By BRIAN GOFFLARGO The success of the 12th annual French Market in Largo March 15 could be measured simply by the traffic jam around the location and the cars circling the parking lot, waiting for a spot to open up. Julie Papalardo, who operates Julies Cottage of Provence on Indian Rocks Road in the Anona district, organizes the market every year. She was well aware of the crowds this year. This is the biggest by far, she said. The crowds have been great, they showed up early, and of course, it is a nice day for it. Papalardo said the market couldnt get much bigger. Weve maxed out the space, she said. Im concerned that when people drive by they might not come in because of all the traffic, but thats a good problem to have, isnt it? Papalardo said this year she attracted 35 vendors, the most in the 12-year history of the event. One of those vendors was Jenni Martin who sold art pieces. She takes part in the market every year. This is a great event, she said. The organizers of this show are very professional, and they are always looking to add to it and improve it in any way they can. Martin said besides being good for the vendors, the market also is good for the community. It is a big deal. Many of the same people come year after year, she said. They get to know the sellers, and people stand around and chat. It is a good community event where people can get out and meet others. Well definitely be back. We just love it here. One of those people who come back year after year is Shelly Craddock of Seminole. She calls it an important event for the area. It is the only one around here, she said. It is good for people like us who collect things for our house. We always manage to find something. Well be back again for sure. Craddocks husband Randy trailed behind carrying part of the days booty: a globe. We have three of these now, he said. Im looking around here, and I notice it is getting bigger and bigger. All I can say is bring cash! Nearby, looking over some art, was Franchy Fenten. Visiting from Connecticut, she found the market because a friend knew about it. She was pleased. This is great. It is all about the community getting together, she said. Look around you, it is only 10 a.m. on a Saturday morning, and people are all over the place. There are amazing artists here. I like what I see. There are so many things that are homemade; this is so eclectic. Another shopper, Carmen Bender of St. Petersburg, is another one of those who come to the market every year. She likes what is different about it. They are so helpful here, she said. There is always somebody asking you if they can help. They even help you bring your things to the car. Bender also was pleased with the variety of things to see and buy. It is very unique here. There are so many things you cant buy in stores, she said. There is a variety of jewelry and fresh flowers. It is all unique. I have come here many times and Ill be back again for sure. Words like that are music to the ears of organizer Papalardo, looking again at the crowds of people arriving to browse and buy. She said of course she would do it again next year. As long as the people come and enjoy it, well keep doing it, she said.

At left, Carmen Bender of St. Petersburg, left, shows off some of her purchases to market organizer Julie Papalardo. in Gainesville, but theyre very specific to Central Florida, McFall said. New customer, Delalle Alexander of Clearwater Beach, browsed from shelves of seedlings March 14, selecting new plants to grow. Her garden only began to thrive last month; she failed to grow anything last year. But McFall taught her how to grow a better garden. Her new tomatoes are still green, Alexander said. But they look happy, she said, explaining that shes also growing radishes, parsley and eggplant. They all seem like theyre happy plants. I havent eaten any yet, other than the parsley. Happy plants are what McFall is all about. She spends much of her days away from her garden, giving talks to various social groups, at preschools, senior centers, churches and doctors offices. If anybody wants me to come talk about organics, I will do so, and I love it, she said, adding that she doesnt require a fee. Because people need to know, and thats my purpose: to educate people.A broken systemPeople always ask McFall what she does to keep the bugs away. But there arent any bugs in her garden. The reason is simple. Healthy plants dont get bugs, she said. Todays conventional fertilizers give plants three minerals: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, ingredients that can be used to make bombs. We need 90 minerals in the soil to have healthy soil, McFall explained. Without more minerals, the resulting plants are stressed and unhealthy. The first thing Mother Nature does is sends in the bugs: Take out those unhealthy plants! Because were supposed to get our minerals from our food, McFall said. Scientifically, a healthy plant with no stress becomes a complex carbohydrate. A stressed plant one growing in the wrong season with the wrong amount of water or sunlight and without proper nutrients turns into a simple sugar. The bugs gravitate to simple sugars like candy, McFall said. To combat the bugs, pesticides were developed. So now we have weak and unhealthy plants covered with poison, McFall said. So then Mother Nature sends in the molds, the mildews, the funguses, the diseases, the weeds. Take out those unhealthy plants! Plants are supposed to develop their own probiotics and immunities, but pesticides kill those too, allowing unhealthy organisms to grow in their wake. Of course, the pesticides themselves are bad for humans to consume. McFall points customers to the Dirty Dozen, a list of the fruits and vegetables that are proven to contain the most pesticides, 67 toxins on every one of them, McFall said. Avoiding those toxins is the No. 1 reason to eat organic produce. A lot of people tell me, I cant afford to buy all organic. And I tell them, You cant afford not to, because youre going to pay the farmer now or youre going to pay the doctor later. And its going to be less painful and less expensive to pay the farmer now, McFall said. And if you know how, its easiest to grow your own produce. When you grow your own, not only are you keeping the herbicides and pesticides out, but youre making sure that youre putting the minerals in that need to be in the soil to have healthy plants and to have healthy bodies, McFall said. Plant magicMcFall grew up on an organic farm in Michigan. In the 1960s, the family grew or raised all their own food: meats, fruits and vegetables. We canned, and every Saturday we baked whatever breads, pies, cookies, cakes we needed for the week, so we ate really, really good, McFall said. She bought the 10 acres from her parents in 1986 and began her edible landscaping company. When she moved to Tampa in 2005, however, she discovered that her expertise didnt carry over exactly. Her first two gardens were miserable failures, she said. When she moved to a tiny plot in Clearwater, she tried again, this time with lots more success. She grew herbs and vegetables and cultivated more than 40 fruit-bearing plants. When people would come and look at my gardens, they would walk around and go, You cant grow gardens like this in Florida. You must be using magic, McFall said. Accordingly, the four plant food products Organic Living sells are called Magic Nos. 1 through 4, in order of importance. The first provides the soil with 91 minerals, mined from ancient seabeds in Nevada. No. 2 provides the beneficial microorganisms the plants need to thrive. You create a living community with the microorganisms and the worms and the insects and the plants, and you dont get bugs, and you dont get disease, McFall said. You get nutrient-dense, healthy plants. Magic No. 3 was developed out of a specific desire to grow a plethora of tomatoes, as is easy to do in many northern areas. McFall discovered that tomatoes needed a lower pH and even more nutrients. So the third plant food is made out of bat guano, blood meal and worm castings. Magic No. 4 is called biochar, a one-time application made from the Mayan technique of burning wood into charcoal and mixing it with organic compost. McFall keeps an ongoing experiment to compare the difference between a plant grown with her plant food and one without. The plant fed properly always thrives, grows bigger and produces more fruit, she said. Thats why I teach people to grow their own, because they can. Its totally doable, McFall said. There is work involved, there is money involved. Theres an investment to make. At the same time, its an investment in your future. For her own future, McFall is looking to move into the property next to her storefront and from there grow even more gardens. She wants to clear the back of her current property, plant a food forest and run a co-op through which people can buy shares and pick up produce every week. She said she thinks her message, her ongoing mission, is having an impact in the community. Organic Livings email list is more than 2,000 strong, and theyre all regular customers, she said. Ive had people tell me that Ive changed their lives (and) their health, she said. They keep coming back. And they bring people with them. She finds her work very rewarding because she can say she is changing lives, one family at a time. Organic Living hosts regular workshops on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m. Most are free. A schedule of upcoming workshops, along with more gardening information, is available at the business website, www.organiclivingforall.com. McFall also is available to give talks on organic gardening. Call 324-4435. DOWNTOWN, from page 1Abegan more than a year ago. Commissioners debated only one of the four incentives, one for businesses within specified industries that move to the district and create jobs that pay 115 percent of the countys annual average wage. Those who qualify could apply for a grant paid over five years and capped at $10,000 per job or $50,000 per year for all jobs created. Under the proposed measure, grants also would be given for each new residential unit and for the improvement or construction of a minimum of 15,000 square feet of office space. The final incentive brings the district in line with the rest of the city, offering $200 to cover the permitting and planning fees associated with the construction of new monument signs. Since the city commissioners first reading Oct. 1, the measures have been approved by Pinellas Planning Council as well as county commissioner. Brydon said her team was excited to be able to offer those grants to businesses. Full time staff considered for parkFriends of Largo Nature Parks President Pat Edmond made a plea that commissioners begin funding at least one full-time staff person at McGough Nature Park. We could certainly use those additional hours, she said. Mayor Pat Gerard echoed her request later in the meeting, explaining that the volunteers had proven themselves by stepping up to fill the gap in funding. Theyve been amazing, she said. City Manager Mac Craig said staff already was looking into funding a full-time position within next years budget. We will be bringing you a prioritized list of all the departments and what they want and what we think we can afford, he said. We will include someone from parks in there. In other business, commissioners: passed the final reading of an ordinance prohibiting smoking in outdoor park structures honored police and fire annual awards recipients, see page 3A began the process of annexing 12 properties.

The Florida House Finance & Tax Subcommittee introduced a $400 million motor vehicle fee reduction as part of a priority tax cut package March 13. The same day, the Senate Committee on Appropriations unanimously approved Senate Bill 156, Motor Vehicle License Taxes. Senate Bill 156 reduces certain annual fees paid to register a motor vehicle to the amount paid prior to 2009. Based on the latest estimates, the bill reduces fees by $395 million, according to a Senate press release. Annual vehicle registration fees went up in 2009, when state general revenue collections declined more than 22 percent from their high in 2005-2006. According to a press release from the House, if the bill passes, registration costs would be reduced by $25.05 for heavy weight vehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles, and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. The House proposal constitutes $309 million in tax relief in fiscal year 201415, and $395 million on an annual basis. These reductions are part of the proposed $500 million tax cut, which is the largest tax and fee cut of its kind in over a decade, according to House officials.Pinellas County tax collector takes actionIn a proactive effort, Tax Collector Diane Nelson announced March 12 that she is removing the two-year renewal option from motor vehicle renewal notices. If this bill passes, I want to give Pinellas County residents the opportunity to take advantage of the savings it will offer, Nelson said in a press release. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the pending legislation and potential savings. In 2013, 9 percent of Pinellas County residents took advantage of the biennial registration. If this bill passes with a conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration, Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. Residents can still renew their registrations for two years. They need to write two year renewal on their registration renewal return card and double the amount to be paid. There is no cost advantage with two-year registration renewals, they are offered as a matter of convenience, Nelson said. For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com. Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson is taking proactive measures in anticipation of the Florida Legislature passing a bill to reduce motor vehicle renewal fees.County to answer budget questions at eTownHallPinellas County commissioners and the county administrator will answer budget questions Wednesday, April 9, 7 to 8 p.m., at Pinellas Countys 2015 eTownHall public meeting.

As county leaders work on a strategic direction for the future, citizens are asked to share their own vision for the community and of Pinellas County as a whole. This is the stage in the budget process where the commissioners want our residents involved and have their priorities discussed, said Tim Closterman, Pinellas County communications director. By putting the public meeting online and allowing people the opportunity to answer questions through our blog or Twitter, all of our residents have the ability to be involved in shaping the future of the community. There are five ways to participate in the eTownHall: 1. Be part of the live audience. The live event will be held at St. Petersburg College Seminole campus at 9200 113th St. N in Seminole.

Ste. 101 Palm Harbor, FL 34684 032014Exp. 4/19/14Cabinets Only David Jolly sworn in at U.S. House By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County residents living in District 13 have a voice in the U.S. House of Representatives again. Congressman David Jolly was officially sworn in as the newest member of the House the afternoon of March 13. Jolly, 41, a Republican, defeated Democrat Alex Sink, 65, and Libertarian Marcus Overby, 27, in a special election March 11. Jolly received 48.44 percent of 184,045 votes cast. Sink received 46.55 percent and Overby with 4.84 percent, according to final unofficial results posted after the Canvassing Board met March 14. Forty percent of registered voters within District 13, which includes all of Pinellas with the exception of a few precincts in north and south county, took part in the election. Jolly released a transcript of his first speech made on the floor of the U.S. House. He thanked his new colleagues and the people in District 13. And to the people of Floridas 13th Congressional District, I want to say thank you today for giving me a remarkable life opportunity: the opportunity to serve, Jolly said. For my new colleagues, I simply want you to know two things about this new member. First, I believe in this institution: the peoples House. I believe in all that is good and right about this institution; the opportunity that this institution has to make our nation better; to direct our nation down the right path; to solve problems for all of us and secure for every American for all of us the sacred blessings of liberty. The second thing Id like you to know about this new congressman is I believe in civility. I had the wonderful opportunity to work for a man with whom you each served and left an indelible legacy in this House, one of civility. We are all elected to fight for our communities; to fight for our constituents. We are elected to fight for our convictions and for the causes we believe in. But, it is a fight for the future of our country. It is not a fight against each other. I know that we have had a nationally watched race. That race is now over. And now it is time for me as a member of Congress and of this body to join with each of you to follow in the footsteps that you have taken in serving your community as I begin to serve mine. You have my commitment today to work with each and every one of you. I look forward to it. Jolly will serve an eight-month term. He is completing the term left vacant when former Rep. C.W. BillYoung died Oct. 18. Young served the people of Pinellas County in the House for nearly 43 years. 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. Two Republicans, John-Michael Fleig of St. Pete Beach and Frederick Preston Thomson of Clearwater are listed active as are Democrat Donald Warren Hackett Jr. of Largo and independent Michael S. Levinson of St. Petersburg. A primary election is scheduled for Aug. 26. The general election is on Nov. 4.About David JollyJolly was born in Dunedin Oct. 31, 1972. He has lived at his home in Indian Shores since October 2005. He was divorced from his wife of 15 years in January. He worked for the late Bill Young as an adviser and general counsel until 2007. He is vice president at Clearwater-based Boston Financial Group, CEO at Olympus Foundation Management, and owner of Three Bridges Advisors, a lobbyist firm, Three Bridges Law and 1924 Communications. He graduated from Pasco High School in 1990 and received a bachelor of arts degree in history from Emory College in Atlanta, Ga., in 1994 and Juris Doctor Cum Laude from George Mason University of Law in Arlington, Va., in 2001. Jolly serves on the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance Board of Advisors, Stetson Law School Elder Law Board of Advisors, Jessies Law Board of Directors, Town of Indian Shores Board of Adjustment, Florida Federal Contractors Association Board of Directors and previously served on the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast Board of Advisors.

That is what all the construction is about on the Holiday Inn Harbourside property. The lazy river will be part of a new water park being built on the land. There is plenty of work that will be done according to Joe Lawlor, the hotels general manager. Were laying the foundation right now, he said. Soon you will see them assembling the large water slide and then the lazy river will run through the area. It will probably take a few more weeks. Lawlor said the hotel brass has been considering adding the water park for some time. It just seemed like the right time to do it, he said. We think there will be a demand for it. Several hotels in Florida have built water parks and we have clients now that are pretty excited about it. Lawlor, who has been the general manager of the hotel for the past 20 years, said the total cost of the project hasnt been determined yet. The final aspects of the job are still being finalized, he said. The addition of the water park is welcome news to IRB officials. City Manager Gregg Mims said it will help both the city, in terms of taxes, and the local businesses. It is all good for the restaurants and gift shops, he said. It will help businesses throughout the entire city and especially those in the Narrows Business District. There are multiple businesses that will benefit. The news doesnt stop there however. The owner of the Holiday Inn, Jeff Keierleber, who is based out of Wisconsin and has a home on Clearwater Beach, seems ready to move forward with the long-awaited expansion of the hotel itself. For some time plans have called for the addition of 100 new rooms to be built alongside the new water park in a building separate from the main structure. Lawlor said the prep work is nearly finished. The last of the pilings for the new structure are nearly all in, he said. We wanted to get the pilings done because of the building of the water park it seemed like the smart thing to do. The building is in the planning stages but no date has been set to break ground. The new rooms could be configured as separate rooms or suites. Lawlor said once the expansion is finished there will be new jobs created at the hotel, although he didnt know how many. Mims said the final permits for the expansion should be issued shortly. In the meantime he said the expansion will greatly benefit the city. There will be more lodging taxes and an increase in the ad valorem taxes, he said. The plan for the expansion was approved many, many years ago but sat idle because of the economy. All the plans have been approved and the hotel structure will be permitted any day now. While Lawlor couldnt say when the groundbreaking will take place for the hotel expansion, he was able to pinpoint the completion date of the new water park. I would say some time in July based on the current schedule that is in place, he said. and see people enjoying themselves and what we prepare for them. The Park Street site has a notorious past. The Spanish Caribbean building was built in 1924 by developer Walter Fuller, also the designer. Originally called the Gangplank, it was one of St. Petersburgs first nightclubs. Gangster Al Capone was one of its owners. During prohibition, the nightclub was conveniently located near the water to facilitate deliveries via boat from local bootleggers.New BNI chapter formingCLEARWATER BNI, a networking organization specializing in the exchange of qualified business referrals among members, is opening a new chapter in Clearwater.

The more you learn to better understand this disease will help in how you communicate with your loved ones. As tempting as it might be to say, "Mom/Dad, you just said that," this is not helpful. If his/her statement seems to beg for a response, just say, "Oh, OK, Mom/Dad," or "Thanks for telling me," in a positive way, and move onto something else. When you remind him/her they are repeating themselves, what you're really doing is lowering their selfesteem. It is best not to make a person with Alzheimer's disease feel impaired or ashamed. Try to respond in a positive manner, directing conversation to focus on a memory topic they are still familiar with, thereby supporting their self worth. C aring for a person with dementia is stressful. Seeking the help of support groups, and finding a responsible caregiver who can give you a break when needed is important. It is one thing to finally realize someone close to you has Alzheimers. Its a completely different thing to accept that fact. C omfort Keepers provides our caregivers with extensive, hands-on training, which includes preparing them to care for those with Alzheimers disease and dementia. Comfort Keepers in-home care services are available in all of Pinellas County.

According to the unofficial results posted on the Supervisor of Elections website election night, Michael Mike Petruccelli defeated Diantha Schear by only two votes. Petruccelli received 315 votes, 32.81 percent. Diantha Schear brought in 313 votes, 32.60 percent. A third candidate, Patrick Soranno garnered 332 votes, 34.62 percent. Soranno will fill one of two open slots. Voters were asked to choose two of three new names as replacements for retiring Indian Shores Councilors Carole Irelan and Steve Sutch. Nearly 51 percent of the towns 1,190 registered voters took part in the election. Pinellas County Elections Administrator Nancy Whitlock said state law requires a machine recount when a candidate is defeated by less than 0.5 percent. In races, with a difference of a 0.25 percent a manual recount is required. The Elections Office announced March 12 that the Canvassing Board would conduct a machine recount and a manual recount for the town of Indian Shores. Results of those counts done March 14 showed a difference of only one vote with Petruccelli still in the lead, 315 to 314. Petruccelli and Soranno will be sworn in at 6 p.m. March 25, according to Indian Shores Deputy Clerk Elaine Jackson. Whitlock explained the machine recount process Friday afternoon. The ballots are processed on the same-type machine used the night of the election. Ballots that were scanned using a precinct scanner are processed again, recounted, using a precinct scanner. Mail ballots are processed a second time using a high-speed M650 scanner. The Canvassing Board manually checks ballots that are out stacked, which happens with blanks or, in the case of Indian Shores where two votes were allowed, ballots with votes for more than two, an over-vote, and ballots with less votes than allowed. The Canvassing Board found 336 under-votes during the manual recount. The Canvassing Board also canvassed provisional and write-in votes and certified unofficial results, which will be certified March 21, after the 10-day period for overseas ballots has passed. Whitlock said no overseas ballots are expected for the Indian Shores election. For more election information, visit votepinellas.com.

Soranno won the other seat. The results wont be official until March 21.

The program requires a foster application and approval. All foster care parents are required to complete the volunteer orientation class and foster training. The next training session will be presented Thursday, March 20, at the Pinellas County Animal Services shelter, 12450 Ulmerton Road.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, March 20, 2014We keep hearing about apps. This is short for applications, which is a synonym for useful tools. Many apps belong to smart phones. These apps do everything from summoning the rescue squad to performing brain surgery. A global positioning app can identify the location of every hardware store in Lafayette, La., was induckted (bad joke) into the hardware industry. One of the app-happy things coming down the pipeline is the super-connected house. This will be a home in which humans are necessary only to press a remote device containing 138 buttons. Each button will trigger a different app that will perform a useful chore. Such as turning on the TV to CNN so that we can keep close track of whether Justin Bieber has been arrested in the Ukraine for drinking grappa with a Crimean transvestite. Minor connected-home apps have been available for years. They include TV remotes, light bulbs that switch on at dusk, garage doors triggered by your cars headlights and electric food cookers that turn off as soon as the pot roast resembles a chunk of granite. For decades, pre-set bedside alarm clocks have awakened us to the music of Brahms or Mick Jagger. And so on. But if recent technology reports are correct, we aint seen nuthin yet. Before long Mr. and Mrs. Erg and their teen-age twins will leave the house each morning confident that their home is fully connected and therefore protected. Every two hours the back door will open and let Osgood the Great Dane into the back yard. A recorded voice will summon him to come back in. When the postperson arrives with the mail, a camera inside the mailbox will scan each item and transmit its nature and importance to the adult Ergs. If a stranger approaches the house, another camera will take his/her picture and send it to the local police station. There, a computer will plug the mug shot into an international photo file to reveal if the stranger is a member of the dreaded Hamster Cartel that kidnaps infant hamsters and sells them to perverts in Arkansas. Incoming landline phone calls will be relayed immediately to all four Ergs as voice mail for their cellphones. Every room in the Erg house is equipped with a thermostat, a smoke alarm, a camera and an electric motion sensor. If a mouse, rat or cockroach is detected anywhere in the house, the varmint is tracked to its home base and destroyed by infrared radioactive drones piloted by atomic bug-zappers. Before you and I install any of these new devices in our super-connected homes, we should think about the end result they may produce. It is this: a race of humans who seldom think, move, worry, decide or breathe on their own. Thanks to technology, everything will be done for us. Gizmos will awaken us each morning. They will choose our clothing for the day, and lay it out on the bed, where magic extender arms and fingers will assist us in dressing. In the kitchen or dining area, a pre-selected breakfast will await. On the radio or TV, a news program (whose content will conform to our socio-economic-political leanings) will bring us up to date on the waiting world. Before we depart for work, school or country club, the click of a few buttons on the Family Remote will assure that our home is transformed into an impregnable, super-safe fortress. In the evening, these processes are reversed. There will be awkward moments, of course. When teen-age Eddie Erg and his girl friend go up to his bedroom for an hour of afternoon delight, an Erotic-Warning sensor which Eddie has forgotten to disarm will send a message to his parents: Statutory rape or unwanted pregnancy alert is now in force. Please advise. If Eddies sister Ramona neglects to do her homework each night, an electronic monitor will disable her cellphone, laptop and the ignition to her car. And so on. The super-connected house may make George Orwells Big Brother scenarios seem like Mardi Gras. In exchange for relieving us of our bothersome daily chores, technology may create tailor-made prisons out of our own homes. We will be well on our way to total AI (artificial intelligence) and its inevitable goal: human redundancy. Then again, I could be dead wrong. Many experts predicted that email and Facebook would bring an end to civilized conversation. But all around me I see people squinting at their iPhones and swapping messages with friends next door or at another table in the very same restaurant. If thats not verbal intimacy, I dont know what is.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

To applaud commissioners you cant vote for. To attack Belleair Country Club members who are residents. And to say you are victims? Huh? You dont live here, dont vote here. But you demand to have a say. Have you looked at the Belleview Biltmore building, read the numerous articles and editorials written about the building? It seems logical to most that the building is beyond repair. Yet you presume to tell the good people of Belleair that they are wrong. That their elected officials are wrong. Amazing. You basically have as much right to have a say in any issue in Florida as I would have in Chicago. None. You are not a resident. You are a visitor. Bring Belleair back to being synonymous with the home of the Belleair Biltmore. Is that really what you think? Dont you think the residents of Belleair and the members of the Belleair Country Club have a more vested interest in what happens in their community than a seasonal visitor from Chicago? The condescending tone of your letter is what frustrates those of us who call Florida our home. Full time. We grow tired of being told how we dont do the things the right way in Florida. I am sure that Chicago has many issues of its own that you can take a stand on. Leave local issues to local people and their representatives. Oh well. It will be getting warm in Chicago soon. Enjoy your summer. I am sure Belleair will survive just fine without your input. John Brandt Treasure IslandA better solution: Preserve the BiltmoreEditor: This letter is intended to convey some observations regarding recent events in the process of determining the fate of the property now occupied by the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. The controversial RM10 proposal that was introduced for consideration by the Town Commission a few weeks ago was offered originally to protect the Town from being overbuilt. It would limit residential construction to 10 units per acre. However, potential developers of the hotel property seized upon the height provision in RM10 as the necessary authority to build 80 feet high condominium buildings 40 feet above the tree canopy to provide a view of the water and justify the high end prices required to make the project profitable. So, in the end, the choice for the town is relatively simple: a restored hotel or twin tower, to accommodate about 130 condominiums) reaching at least 40 feet above the tree line, shattering forever the park-like atmosphere of the RPD. The addition of another 160 housing units the developer plans to build about 130 condominiums and 32 townhouses can only further depress property values in Belleair, certainly in the RPD, and probably in the rest of the town through a domino effect. As the Towns population ages, residents will look for opportunities to downsize in the new development, vacating single-family homes, and creating another downward pressure on residential property prices. Adding more residential units to an already depressed market can only have a negative impact on real property values. With a fully restored hotel, no one gets hurt, and the park-like atmosphere of the RPD would remain intact. Regarding the current condition of the hotel, none of us should be considered blameless. As residents and taxpayers, we should have been more insistent that the town aggressively enforce the specific requirement of the towns Comprehensive Plan to preserve the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. As our elected representatives, commission members should have been more mindful of that obligation. In any event, our combined neglect and the present condition of the hotel should not be used as an excuse to avoid the towns duty to preserve the hotel. That obligation is undiminished and ongoing. In the last month, I have knocked on the doors or rung the doorbells of close to 300 Belleair residences and spoken with more than 100 residents. Only two openly opposed the restoration of the hotel. Some made no definitive comment; but a clear majority expressed their support for restoring the Biltmore. One of those residents spoke with a particular passion as she described her frustration, exasperation, impatience and anger about the loss of income to the town since the Hotel closed, the new fees that have resulted and her general dissatisfaction with the lack of definitive action regarding the future of the property. However, her last comment was a familiar one: I hope they find a way to save it. I have not heard a single resident of Belleair express a preference for two high-rise condominium towers stretching well above the tree line on the highest point in the town over a restored, historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Jim Betts BelleairDont print propaganda about marijuanaEditor: I opened your paper to find an article that was quite disturbing to me regarding a Letter to the Editor on why marijuana should not be legalized. I would first like to state that it is poor judgment on your organization to post such outright lies and incorrect information from a viewpoint of a reader. Every item that was covered had incorrect data or what I call lies. The data released is nothing more than unsubstantiated fear tactics used by prohibitionists to scare children. The proven facts are that cannabis used as medicine works. If your paper is unable to research the articles and publish facts you might as well just close your doors now because no one will trust the information you print. Please be mindful of this the next time you choose to publish propaganda instead of facts. Tom Shirra St. PetersburgJumping the gun on fire stationEditor: It was with great regret that I read the article Bluffs hopes high for fire station in the Feb. 27 Belleair Bee. I thought this issue was long dead. How can anyone who went through the debacle of the Bluffs firefighter pension payout battle, which cost Bluffs taxpayers and the town plenty, have the audacity to propose a $3 million fire station when the current arrangement is working just fine. The thing that is most irritating about this proposal is that the people living adjacent to the site have not been considered. Placing a fire station in the midst of an inherently residential neighborhood makes no sense to me or anyone I have spoken to. Perhaps it would be wise to call a meeting of area residents to see how they feel about the constant noise of sirens at very close range and the plummeting property values this will cause. Id be willing to bet that no one who is proposing this facility lives within hearing range. It would be wise to see what the people who will be most affected by this proposal think before jumping the gun on this one. Lori Spence Belleair BluffsCommunity comes together at Pow WowThank you to all the Seminole city employees, city volunteers, school, business, church and civic groups and Sheriff deputies for a safe, successful and special family friendly 2014 Seminole Pow Wow Festival and Parade. Our community coming together, our citizens, parents, grandparents, kids, and friends were all having good wholesome fun. Hundreds of people marching, walking, running, waving, twirling, strutting and riding along the one mile parade route; enjoying the midway carnival ride, games and food; cheering teams participating in the fire-truck pull; listening to varied types of entertainment; watching a fireworks spectacular that concluded a crystal clear and sunny weekend. All these, in my opinion, were some of the many indications of a likeable, livable and loveable city that I am very happy to call home.

I am an American (Seppo = septic tank = Yank), which in itself is OK in Oz, but I sound like a Brit (Pom), which is not! I learned more strine for idiot than I care to remember or indeed recall in a family magazine, but drongo, nong, raw prawn, drop-kick, and buttoned up the pack are just a few. Maybe I should not have answered, Sorry, I didnt realize it was still a requirement to the Oz immigration officers question, Do you have a criminal record? My delightful niece invited me to a 3D something party. Beware, she said, of the two people there. One was her best friend, a real drink-on-a-stick, (beauty), but a terrible two-pot screamer, (easy drunk), resulting in the inevitable Technicolor yawn (throwing up) and its resultant pavement pizza, no translation necessary. The other was her who had a tendency to wear budgie smugglers (brief swimming trunks to pool parties). My brother and I took a trip into the black stump (boonies) to the gold-mining town of Kalgoorlie. There, in a bar, I met an ocker, almost untranslatable, but a cross between a redneck, miner and hobo. He was watching Lady Gaga on TV, and it struck me that the two more extremes of the human spectrum could hardly be imagined. Yes, he had been a miner of his youth, and he had worked flatout like a lizard drinking (very hard) all his life. Although he was always ready as a drovers dog for hard work, it was sometimes hard to come by scarcer than rocking-horse manure. So he was often forced to go walkabout (travel, not necessarily walking) and had waltzed his Matilda (rambled) as far as Queensland and New South Wales, including all over northern territories and South Australia. It was generally OK, but he didnt care for banana benders (Queenslanders) who he regarded as useful as a chocolate kettle. In the good old days, you could hitch a ride on the planes, which flew from mining camp to mining camp, transporting equipment and miners, usually a Fokker F27. But the worst words a rambling ocker could hear was that here was no room: Sorry, ocker, the Fokkers Chokker. He was relieved and couldnt bring himself to leave Kalgoorlie, so he would stay until he cashed in his superannuation, (i.e., until he passed on). Strine possesses some terminology that can be well adopted by other forms of English. For example, I read the headline: year-old hoon arrested in Joondalup; father also charged. A hoon is a person, usually young, who performs any dangerous maneuver with a car, including wheelies, speeding, road racing, use of horn, etc. Another headline: Secretary dobs on boss over call-girl rorts revealed the use of dob in, meaning to inform on, but usually in a positive way as in a whistle blower and rort a commonly used term for misuse of fraud or other forms of cheating. So if you intend to go to Oz, be prepared to strine. Be nice to the Qantas trolley dolly, (flight attendant) and the Woolworths check out chick. Get your Aussie salute (brushing away flies motion) ready. Perth, in western Australia, is a great place to live 10 million flies cant be wrong. Get ready to use diminutives and abbreviations. Stubbie = bottle of beer, tinnie = can of beer, Barbie = barbecue, etc. Call all redheads bluie, brush up on the only two regular greetings Gday, and Shell be all right, cobber, and your trip will be bonzer and shape up a beaut.

Oxfam America Hunger Banquet Thursday, April 24, 6 to 7:30 p.m., in Fox Hall. The Oxfam America Hunger Banquet is where your seat and your meal are determined by the luck of the draw. Just as in real life, some of us are born into relative prosperity and others into poverty. One in seven people go hungry. But hunger is not about too many people and too little food. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough food to feed everyone on earth. Hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources. The results are illiteracy, poverty, war and the inability of families to grow or buy food. Few experiences bring to life these inequalities more powerfully than an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet.Eckerd College announces upcoming events School notesFoundation hosts Career Education BreakfastLARGO The Pinellas Education Foundation hosted the 2014 Career Education Breakfast March 19 at the Achieva Conference Center in the Gus A.

Weekly themes provide different experiences for each camp. The offerings will include: Mini-Masters Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon or 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 4.5 to 5. Sizzlin Summer / Visual Art Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 6 to 10. Mural Madness Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 8 to 12. Arts in Motion Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 8 to 12. Art Squad Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for ages 11 to 14. More is better, said Todd Still, director of youth education at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. This year the camp will offer programs for teens as well as separate Arts in Motion and Mural Madness Camps. Were trying to offer the breadth of programs that parents are looking for. Rebranding its summer camp programs as the Summer Art Academy, DFAC sought to reflect the quality of instruction that happens each week, with certified art instructors in most of the classrooms. Though we still refer to each week as a camp, parents agreed that the term academy better reflects how our offerings differ from many camps in the area, said Still. George Ann Bissett, the executive director of DFAC, feels the camps are growing because of the positive experience the children are having. Studies show that children who study art, end up doing better in all of their studies, Bissett said. So that makes our programs pretty popular with parents, too. Scholarships and after-care and lunch are available. Special March pricing is available through March 31 and early registration discounts end with an open house, set for Friday, April 25, 6 to 8 p.m. For information, call 298-3322 or visit www.dfac.org.Clearwater HS to stage NunsenseCLEARWATER Clearwater High School Performing Arts Department will present two encore performances of Nunsense on Thursday and Friday, March 20-21, 7:30 p.m., in the auditorium at the school at 540 S.

Imagine walking down the street from one end of your block to the other one. You saunter leisurely. No traffic hampers your stroll. The entire street is visible. There is another person all the way at the other end of the block. The two of you walk toward each other deliberately but unhurriedly. You eye the other person as you stroll, watching them grow as if out of the distance. The other person does the same to you. The two of you finally get to the middle but bizarrely, do not meet. Instead, you go to the left side of the street. The other person goes to the right side of the street. From this safe but baffling distance, the two of you walk in a wide circle. Then you head into a nearby house while the other person wheels around and heads back in the direction from which he came. Finally, pretend that the rest of us see this roundabout reunion only as a silent film. What should we make of it? What is the maritime counterpart? Along a particularly narrow stretch of the salty snaky river of sea we call the Intracoastal Waterway, two groups of dolphins headed toward each other. They were both nursery groups, so-called because they only included moms and kids from a quarter mile away. They have no idea that their narrow waterway was born of the same two forces that dictate their fortunes today, nature and mankind. Nature fashioned the barrier island that isolated the ICW from the Gulf of Mexico eons ago. But mankind started fixing it a hundred years ago. I have heard humanity called the naked ape. But I think a better nickname is the restless ape. One nursery group was mother-calf pair Valiant and her little boy Vidalia. They were heading north. A quarter mile up the way, another nursery was heading south. It was a quartet of two female friends and another mother-calf pair, Front Slash and her tiny Fairuz. Fairuz, which means turquoise in Arabic, was born last summer. Now it is entering the intoxicating phase we call Babys First Spring. At 9 months old, baby dolphins are deemed old enough (by mother) to play with a range of other dolphins, not just moms close associates. Sea school goes viral and such babies make the seas sparkle even more by their great enthusiastic animation. Capt. John Heidemann and I have studied the adults in these groups for 10 years. One of the many curiosities of that effort is something we might describe as the Cashier Effect. Consider how the cashier at your local grocery store sees the stores clientele. She or he undoubtedly recognizes regular customers by face, maybe even by name. Yet those same customers do not know each other. This can be hard for the cashier to grasp: What do you mean, they do not know each other? Between trying to get pictures of Fairuz, dashing around like any kid trying to get someone to play with it, I felt waves of the Cashier Effect. The two groups approached each other steadily but then did not really meet up. Instead, as in the above fable, they circled each other about 40 feet apart. Then Valiant and Vidalia went into a nearby cove to hunt. The quartet reversed course and headed by from whence they came. What was this about? Why had they bothered? Maybe the real question is, why did they come that close together only to never touch? When we first saw the dolphins, they were ahead in the distance. Both groups knew we were coming because the sound of our engine precedes us. It is as effective as an identifier as you phoning the person at the other end of the block and saying your name. The dolphins can make trade communications without the cell phone by sending their signature whistles into the gloom to announce their presence and identity. Whatever else they may be communicating remains debatable. But dolphins can vocalize to one another at distances far greater than the quarter mile between the nursery groups today. Unfortunately, we do not know if they were trading vocalizations (because the necessary sound-tracking equipment to hear dolphins when your boat engine is running is very expensive). But let us assume that they were communicating. Let us say they were calling back and forth until they came close enough to see each other in the gloom of estuary waters. But no closer. Why did they not approach and join into a single group, even for a moment? The calves did not play together. The moms did not swim side by side as companionable dolphins do. They simply came close for a moment and then continued on their separate ways. There are plenty of people living near you who use the same resources that you use. But you do not know them. They do not know you. Ever think about how universal that is?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Photo by ANN WEAVERCaught mid-chomp swallowing a fish, 3-year-old bottlenose dolphin Vidalia demonstrates his fledgling fish handling abilities. Dolphin calves like Vidalia that are injured as young calves stay closer to their moms longer and as a result postpone some of their lessons at sea school. But this picture shows that Vidalia is developmentally on schedule. Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver Start before dawn to catch baitFull moon tides and a couple of days of postcard perfect weather resulted in some memorable days fishing by the end of last week. Schools of redfish were grouped up tight on the low tides, and sea trout fed well on the high outgoing tides. Spanish mackerel and kingfish numbers are on the rise as we start to see more and more bait make its way into the area, and bonus fish like cobia and triple tail are becoming targetable when the weather is right. As early week stormy conditions fade back to beautiful days, its likely we wont see the same spring setbacks this week as weve seen with the past two cold fronts. Midto upper70-degree temperatures with a lot of sunshine should fast-track the bait right into our area. Whether you like to catch and fish with fresh bait or prefer using artificial lures, there is no doubt that when theres plenty of bait around the fish just feed better. If youre looking for a baitwell full of pilchards, you might be disappointed. However, there are enough of them around to make the effort. Pre-dawn starts are a must. Working bridge shadow lines in the dark will give you a chance at all kinds of fresh bait including pilchards, threadfins, ladyfish and shad. All are great baits this time of year. Although the live bait will account for some great fish right now, numbers still lie with the fresh cut bait. Chunks of ladyfish and cut threadfins have been working excellent for the reds and accounting for enough gator trout to think you could easily just fish cut bait. Low tides will have the fish sitting out on the edges of grass flats. Find the entry point and youll be in the fish. Work a top-water plug first thing in the morning and you will most likely find that entry point. Spoil islands are still producing good trout fishing. Afternoon high outgoing tides this week will be good. As the light begins to fade you can expect big trout to get hungry. Free-line or cork live pilchards or grass grunts on the tide swept corner of the islands and you could be fishing for a trout of a life time. We had multiple fish over 26 inches this past week. These big females are the spawning stock for our trout rich fishery and a healthy release is encouraged.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Visit www.TBNweekly.comSea turtle nesting season beginsMore sea turtles nest on Floridas sandy beaches than on any other U.S. coastline. Biologists at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission hope the 2014 nesting season that started March 1 will be as successful as others in recent years. Beginning this month, leatherback sea turtles emerge onto beaches to lay their eggs along Floridas Atlantic coast, from Broward to Brevard counties. A few months later, people in other coastal counties also may notice loggerhead and green sea turtle crawls, the distinctive line of tracks they leave behind in the sand. Three species of sea turtles nest in abundance on Florida beaches: leatherbacks, loggerheads and greens. Loggerheads are the most abundant, and approximately 90 percent of all nests for this species in the southeastern United States occur in Florida. Sea turtle biologists were surprised and pleased in 2013 when a record number of more than 36,000 green sea turtle nests were counted in Florida. The great news is that so many sea turtles nest on Florida beaches more than anywhere else in the United States, said Dr. Robbin Trindell, who is responsible for sea turtle management at the FWC. Florida had a record number of loggerhead nests in 2012, followed by a record number of green turtle nests in 2013. Typically, sea turtle nesting season runs from March through the end of October, but nesting continued well beyond that in 2013. Green turtles generally nest later than the other sea turtle species in Florida. FWC biologists would not be surprised if nesting season extends later into the fall again this year, and they caution beachgoers that marked nests on the beach may hatch well past the official end of nesting season in October. The actions that people take are critical to maintaining Floridas success with sea turtles, Trindell said. Remove chairs, canopies, boats and other items from the beach at night, because they block the movement of turtles and hatchings. Dont forget to turn off or shield lights on the beach, to prevent hatchlings from getting confused and going toward land instead of the salt water where they belong. In Florida, volunteers, who assist the FWCs researchers, document sea turtle landings on the beach. About 2,500 FWC-permitted volunteers regularly patrol more than 800 miles of sandy shoreline to identify, mark and protect sea turtle nests. They collect nesting data and also share their knowledge with beachgoers on how to help conserve sea turtles. Support Floridas sea turtles by purchasing the Helping Sea Turtles Survive license tag at BuyaPlate.com. Tag funds are spent on sea turtle research, rescue and conservation efforts. People also can donate $5 and receive an FWC sea turtle decal. Learn more about sea turtles at MyFWC.com/SeaTurtle.

LeeAccording to a biography provided by Bigg Time Entertainment, Jake E. Lee entered the world as Jakey Lou Williams. He was born and raised in West Virginia, but, with his father in the military, the family was constantly on the move. They eventually settled in San Diego, Calif. There, Lee and his sister took to the California culture and lifestyle. His mother saw his musical talent and convinced him to learn classical piano at an early age. It was Lees sister, however, who would introduce him to rock and roll. She let Lee listen to her favorite heavy metal and hard rock albums, exposing him to Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. The appeal was such that Lee soon switched to guitar as his instrument of choice. Lee founded his first band Teaser while still in high school. Playing the Southern California scene, he quickly attracted attention. In the coming years, he would play for Ratt and Rough Cutt and becameRed Dragon Cartel Largo Cultural Center welcomes Jake E.

His career took off in 1990 with the recording of his critically acclaimed, self-titled debut disc, which yielded such classics as Grammy Award-winning Walking In Memphis, Silver Thunderbird and True Companion. Emily Kopp will open the show. George Thorogood And The Destroyers, Friday, March 21, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $29.50. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Thorogood is celebrating 40 years of performing hard-driving rock and roll this year. Ever since their first gig at Lane Hall on the campus of The University of Delaware in 1973, the band has traveled the world with its brand of Booze and Boogie Rock. A mainstay on classic rock radio with hits like One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, Move It On Over, Who Do You Love, Bad To The Bone, I Drink Alone, Get A Haircut and You Talk Too Much, the band has kept up a grinding pace performing for a loyal fan base the world over and, after 40 years, there is no sign of slowing down. Thorogood and the band are busy working on a new album to be released early next year. They will once again join forces with Nashville producer Tom Hambridge, who worked with the band on the critically acclaimed record South Michigan Avenue, a tribute to the Chicago blues label Chess Records. This time the project will consist entirely of original material songs that demonstrate the broad reach of Thorogoods songwriting, with some titles going back to the beginning of his recording career.

Like the fine wines that are his hobby, Al 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 and beyond. He is best known for Year of the Cat which was released in 1976 and spawned two Top 20 hits, the title song and On the Border which became a million-selling record. As he nears the 20album mark, Stewart 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.

This hilarious comedy deals with the misfortunes of a famous television actress who seeks to get away from it all in a small New England town. Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marloe leases a house in New England to write her autobiography. Dealing with her nosy neighbors turns out to be more difficult than she imagined so she invents a mad homicidal sister who is kept locked in an upstairs room. The ruse works well until the local handyman develops an affection for sister Sadie and complications ensue. The Early Bird ensemble is led by artistic director Toby Manion, who also is acting in this zany comedy. Other stars are Barbara Anthony, Jeff Smith, Charles W. Wilcox, Deb Birchler and newcomers to Early Bird, Dana Kovar, Peter J. Konowicz, and Carmilina Alford.

But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine the Worlds Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon, and Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard.DivergentGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zo Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer and Kate Winslet Director: Neil Burger Rated: PG-13 In a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before its too late.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.AnitaGenre: Documentary Cast: Anita Hill Director: Freida Mock Not rated An entire country watched transfixed as a poised, beautiful African-American woman in a blue dress sat before a Senate committee of 14 white men and with a clear, unwavering voice recounted the repeated acts of sexual harassment she had endured while working with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. That October day in 1991 Anita Hill, a bookish law professor from Oklahoma, was thrust onto the world stage and instantly became a celebrated, hated, venerated, and divisive figure. Anita Hills graphic testimony was a turning point for gender equality in the U.S. and ignited a political firestorm about sexual misconduct and power in the workplace that resonates still today. She has become an American icon, empowering millions of women and men around the world to stand up for equality and justice. Against a backdrop of sex, politics, and race, Anita reveals the intimate story of a woman who spoke truth to power. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock, the film is both a celebration of Anita Hills legacy and a rare glimpse into her private life with friends and family, many of whom were by her side that fateful day 22 years ago. Anita Hill courageously speaks openly and intimately for the first time about her experiences that led her to testify before the Senate and the obstacles she faced inOpening this weekend Cast: Thierry Lhermitte, Raphal Personnaz, Niels Arestrup and Julie Gayet Director: Bertrand Tavernier Not rated Alexandre Taillard de Vorms is tall and impressive, a man with style, attractive to women. He also happens to be the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the land of enlightenment: France. With his silver mane and tanned, athletic body, he stalks the world stage, from the floor of the United Nations in New York to the powder keg of Oubanga. There, he calls on the powerful and invokes the mighty to bring peace, to calm the trigger-happy, and to cement his aura of Nobel Peace Prize winnerin-waiting. Alexandre Taillard de Vorms is a force to be reckoned with, waging his own war backed up by the holy trinity of diplomatic concepts: legitimacy, lucidity and efficacy. He takes on American neo-cons, corrupt Russians and money-grabbing Chinese. Perhaps the world doesnt deserve Frances magnanimousness, but his art would be wasted if just restricted to home turf. Enter the young Arthur Vlaminck, graduate of the elite National School of Administration, who is hired as head of language at the foreign ministry. In other words, he is to write the ministers speeches. But he also has to learn to deal with the sensibilities of the boss and his entourage, and find his way creative career. Hoping to find clarity and new purpose as a writer, he holes up with his eccentric sister (Fallon Goodson) at the seaside home of their best friend (Catherine Keener). But as he disappears further into his own mind, reality begins to slip through his grasp. Featuring an award-winning ensemble, including David Straithairn and Alan Cumming, Maladies is a heartfelt but defiantly unconventional exploration of the creative mind.Nymphomaniac: Volume 1Genre: Drama Cast: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgrd, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier Director: Lars von Trier Not rated Nymphomaniac: Volume 1 is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgrd), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and youngadulthood (portrayed in flashback by newcomer Stacy Martin). The film also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma simply telling the truth. She also candidly discusses what happened to her life and work in the 22 years since.Blood TiesGenre: Crime and thriller Cast: Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Austin Williams, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana and James Caan Director: Guillaume Canet Rated: R It is New York, 1974, and 50year-old Chris has just been released on good behavior after several years in prison following a gangland murder. Waiting for him reluctantly outside the prison gates is his younger brother, Frank, a cop with a bright future. Chris and Frank have always been different, and their father, Leon, who has raised them alone, seems strangely to prefer Chris this, despite all his troubles. Yet blood ties are the ones that bind. Frank, hoping that his brother has changed, is willing to give him a chance; he shares his home, finds him a job, and helps him reconnect with his children and his ex-wife, Monica. But Chris past quickly catches up to him, and his descent back into a life of crime becomes inevitable. For Frank, this descent proves to be the last in a long line of betrayls, and after his brothers latest transgressions, he banishes him from his life. But its already too late; the brothers destiny will be bound, forever.The French MinisterGenre: Comedy Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark and Connie Nielsen.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

But just as he thinks he can influence the fate of the world, everything seems threatened by the inertia of the technocrats.Jodorowskys DuneGenre: Documentary Director: Frank Pavich Rated: PG-13 In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12-year-old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including HR Giger and Jean Moebius Giraud, Jodorowskys adaptation of Frank Herberts classic sci-fi novel Dune was poised to change cinema forever. For two years, Jodo and his team of spiritual warriors worked night and day on the massive task of creating the fabulous world of Dune, generating more than 3,000 storyboards, numerous paintings, incredible costumes, and an outrageous, moving and powerful script. In the words of Jodorowskys producer, Michel Seydoux, It should have been enough. But it wasnt. Through interviews with legends and luminaries including HR Giger, Gary Kurtz and Nicolas Winding Refn, and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky filmed over the course of three years, director Pavichs film featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodos mind-blowing psychedelic space opera (animated by Emmy Award nominated Syd Garon) finally unearths the full saga of The Greatest Movie Never Made.MaladiesGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: James Franco, Catherine Keener, Fallon Goodson, David Strathairn and Alan Cumming Director: Carter Not rated A daring new film from internationally acclaimed multimedia artist Carter, Maladies charts the struggles of an unstable former soap opera star (James Franco) in 1960s New York as he tries to restart his floundering

The tragic death of guitarist Randy Rhoads left a vacancy in Ozzy Osbournes band. According to Bigg Time Entertainment, Osbourne asked Jake to audition for his band. Jake knew that Rhoads shoes were hard to fill, but he believed he was able to handle the challenge. Osbourne auditioned around 500 other guitarists from around the world, but it was Lee who eventually got the spot. For the next four years, Lee recorded, wrote and toured with Osbourne. They released Bark at the Moon, which eventually went multi-platinum, and quickly quieted critics who said Rhoads could never be replaced. The Ultimate Sin album followed, which was another huge success for Osbourne. Osbourne and Lee split in the midst of Osbournes well-documented drug and alcohol periods. Although the official story is that Osbourne fired Lee, Bigg Time Entertainment states that the two remain good friends. Following his departure from Osbournes band, Lee took a sabbatical to spend time with his family. He turned down a number of job offers. Then, one day, he received a proposition he could not ignore. Ray Gillen, another former Black Sabbath lead singer, approached him with the idea of forming a blues-based metal band. Lee agreed, and the two soon recruited bassist Greg Chaisson and drummer Eric Singer. They called the band Badlands. Badlands self-titled debut album was released in 1989. It featured a mix of blues and hard rock, powered by hard-driving guitar riffs. The album earned critical acclaim as well as impressive sales. The band toured worldwide to support the album, and followed it up with Voodoo Highway. Health issues forced Gillen to leave the band and Lee also soon departed. For many years after Badlands, Lee largely remained out of the spotlight. In 1996, he released an instrumental album, A Fine Pink Mist, and in 2005 he released a blues album, Retraced. Working with Kevin Churko and Ron Mancuso in Las Vegas, Lees new band Red Dragon Cartel has Photos by JAY RICHMONDAt left, local artists Peter Smith and Lucy Monette of Safety Harbor, enjoy the good vibes and great beer at the fourth annual Dunedin Beerfest, celebrating American Craft Beer Wee, March 8 at Edgewater Park.

PETERSBURG The birth of photography turned the camera into a notebook of history especially when it came to battlefields and those in uniform. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is bringing that notebook of American military history to St. Petersburg with the opening of The American Soldier A Photographic Tribute. The exhibit opened March 18 and will run through July 13. The American Soldier is a dramatic exhibition of 116 wall-to-wall photographs capturing the essence of American soldiering for more than 150 years. The exhibition guides visitors through the Civil War, Spanish American War, Boxer Rebellion, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Afghanistan, and the streets of Baghdad. The exhibition captures the emotions of danger, frustration, humor, camaraderie, death and victory that American soldiers encountered in this odyssey through history. Arriving from the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum in Texas, space for the exhibit was an initial challenge, but the museum underwent interior renovations adding exhibit space to accommodate The American Soldier and enhance the guest experience. The arrival of this amazing exhibit is a major coup for St. Petersburg and the Museum of History, said Rui Farias in a press release. Farias is executive director at the museum. It compelled us to be creative and in the process, the redesign and remodeling of our interior exhibit space is energetic and inviting. This exhibit gives the Museum of History the opportunity to re-create itself as a cultural center. Our goal is to use art, photographs and artifacts to teach history. Cyma Rubin is the curator and producer of The American Soldier, as well as the curator of the highly successful exhibition, Capture the Moment The Pulitzer Prize Photographs. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is at 335 Second Ave. NE. Museum hours for the exhibit are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The art scenerecorded its eponymous first album for release on Frontiers Records. In addition to Lees guitar work, the band features Darren Smith on lead vocals, Jonus Fairley on drums, Ron Mancuso on bass. The album also features guest appearances from Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, Maria Brink from In this Moment and other all-star musicians.Eddie Trunk book signingThe Largo Cultural Center will host its first book signing on Friday, March 28, 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event will feature Eddie Trunk, author of the newly released Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Vol. 2. Trunks special appearance is part of the Jake E. Lees Red Dragon Cartel show at the Largo Cultural Center. Trunk also will emcee for the show. The book signing event is open to ticket holders to the concert. Trunk is a 30-year music industry veteran who has built a reputation for being one of the most respected personalities in the worlds of hard rock and heavy metal. He hosts Eddie Trunk Live, a weekly live music, talk and interview show on SiriusXM satellite radio Channel 39, which is branded Trunk Nation during his program. He is currently host and co-producer of the hit series That Metal Show, the longest-running program in the history of VH1 Classic. That Metal Show is seen around the world. Trunk has recently turned his attention to writing. In 2010, he released his first book Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal. The book was very well received by critics and fans alike. Last year, he finished work on the sequel, Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Vol. 2, which was released in late 2013. RED DRAGON, from page 1B
