TORRESLARGO Computer equipment valued at $59,805 was delivered to a home in Canada Feb. 19 before Tech Data, an international IT distributor based in Largo, realized their customer had been a victim of a Russian cybercrime. The company has Largo police detectives to thank for helping to recover more than $20,000 of the equipment before it was shipped overseas, likely to Russia or possibly Ukraine, said Tech Data fraud manager Scott Heim. The scam started with a Zeus virus or a similar variant that infected one of their customers computers, Heim said. The virus, specifically a keylogger Trojan, was designed to track keystrokes and relay the user names and passwords, even online banking credentials, back to the cybercriminals, who then were able to log on to Tech Data Canadas website as the victim and place an order using their account. Heim said its a problem the company has been dealing with in the United States and Canada for about two years. All the major tech distributors are dealing with the same activity, he explained. In fact, any company that provides electronic commerce access for its customers has to defend against these types of attacks, he said. Rarely, however, is such an attack on Tech Datas websites successful. We catch almost all of them. Its less than 1 percent that actually get fulfilled, Heim said. Slips though, occasionally will occur, and its nice to know that we have partners with law enforcement that can jump on this for us. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The masters and students of a fairly new and American-made martial art form gathered in Largo for an international seminar and contest March 21-22. Choi Kwang Do is a unique martial arts system, explained its founder Grand Master Kwang Jo Choi, who was in attendance. Its based on modern scientific principals, not only for practical self-defense, which everybody can learn, but also, the more important, (to) promote our health. The event celebrated the 27th anniversary of the martial art and honored the birthday of its founder. Choi, 72, still teaches seminars around the world, demonstrating the agility and power his system of training has allowed him to maintain. During this years seminar, he taught a class to senior citizens from the Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay, some in their 90s, and a class to a gymnasium full of black-belt students of all ages. This year, the international seminar was held in Largo to help promote the Florida movement, which has only two County revisits Starkey Road projectChicken therapyResidents tout the benefits of backyard chicken coops By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Karen Maloney always wanted to raise chickens. Her flock of 12 hens have free range over half of her backyard, live in a homemade coop and enjoy a diet of organic grain, mostly organic vegetables and whatever other food is taking up space in Maloneys refrigerator. Owning chickens was an item on her bucket list, she explained. I knew I was going to like this. Its been like 100 times more fun than I thought, she said. These girls are lucky. Theyve got it made. Maloney works in a high-stress job, as a psychiatric nurse at Bay Pines VA Medical Center. Often, she comes home, pulls up a chair in her backyard and just watches the flock meander about, interact with each other and bury themselves in the dirt to clean their feathers in whats called a dust bath. Sometimes her friends ask to join her for chicken therapy, she said. Theyre fascinating. There is something relaxing about them, Maloney explained. Theyre like your blood pressure medication and your antidepressant all wrapped in one. Maloneys flock has grown since she first began raising chickens, starting with six chicks four years ago. Four of the six grew up to be roosters and had to be given away to avoid noise complaints from her neighbors. One has since died. Only a hen named Wilma is from the original flock. Most of her flock she bought as chicks, some from a local seller, some ordered and sent through the mail. Maloney started her flock all wrong, buying the chicks before she had a coop and in the heat of summer, she said. It took three to four months for Maloney and her friend the chicks godfather, she explained to finish the coop, while the chicks grew bigger and began making a mess of the garage. We had a lot of mishaps, but we had a lot of fun too, she said. Maloney has hatched chicks as well, including Olive, named for her breed. Olive eggers are more unusual chickens and lay, predictably, olive-colored eggs. After hatching, Olive imprinted on Maloney and even now will follow her around the yard. In the morning when I leave for work, shell run after me, Dont leave me! she said, adding in a lowered voice, so as not to rouse jealousy in her flock. Shes my favorite too. Maloney has several types of breeds: Rhode Island reds, New Hampshire reds, a Dutch Welsummer named Kip and a white leghorn named Pearl, the smallest of her flock, who lays the most consistent and biggest eggs. Shes all business, she said. Most stereotypes about chickens prove to be true, she said. Theyre easily spooked, they come home to roost at dusk without fail they cant see in the dark and they have a pecking order. New additions to the flock get picked on, By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Improvements for the Park Street/Starkey Road corridor have been a part of Pinellas Countys Comprehensive Plan since 1989. Until recently, the project consisted of building a sixlane divided roadway from Tyrone Boulevard to East Bay Drive. But now county staff is proposing new parameters they say will better meet current needs. Al Bartolotta, section manager with the countys Planning Department and Metropolitan Planning Organization, updated commissioners during the March 18 regular meeting on recommendations from a consultant team asked to re-evaluate the project. He showed a chart of 2010 traffic projections made in 1989 and real numbers from 2012. The most drastic change, down by 91 percent, was the estimate for the Tyrone Boulevard to Park Boulevard segment. In 1989, experts projected the annual average daily traffic on that segment would increase to 46,900. Actual numbers in the Pinellas County 2012 LOS (level of service) Report showed an AADT of 24,500. Those same experts projected an AADT of 39,800 for the Park Boulevard to Bryan Dairy Road segment. Numbers reported in 2012, showed a 45 percent decrease to 27,400. Thats a big difference in numbers, Bartolotta said. The downward trend in traffic coincides with the decline in the countys population from 2000 to 2010. Meanwhile came the economic downturn and there was no money to implement the project and it stalled. So staff took the opportunity to revisit the project with help from the design consultant. Bartolotta used a map to show significant areas near the corridor where people live in poverty. Those people are not driving, he said. Theyre utilizing the bus, biking and walking. An analysis of the corridor revealed areas with no sidewalks, some with no contiguous sidewalks and bus stops that consist of just signs sitting on swells, he said. He pointed out that there were other modes of travel besides cars and safety had to be a primary concern. See STARKEY, page 4A See CHICKENS, page 4A See CYBERCRIME, page 4APhoto by JULIANA A.

That meant the seminar was smaller than the 2,000 to 3,000 people it usually attracts and included less demonstration teams. But they did a great job, Choi said. Personally, I love to come to Florida. The event, held at Christ the King Lutheran Church, was open to the public and hosted by the Choi Kwang Do school that practices there, headed by Robert Master D Defayette. It was a great success for us. I had several people already call, inquiring about the classes, Defayette said. Everyones pumped and excited about it. So that energy will help grow our school. Defayettes school, called CKD Master D, meets in several locations, teaching adults, children, seniors and even stroke victims. During the weekends contest, his team of seven black-belt students ranged in age from 8 to 57, showing off what students who are still growing the art can do, though they didnt make it into the finals, Defayette said. The accessibility of Choi Kwang Do is integral to its purpose. Choi was an adept taekwondo teacher in Southeast Asia before he had to stop due to a knee injury and back pain, he said. He came to the United States for treatment and in 1978 began to develop a new martial arts technique that would aid his recuperation and promote health, rather than show off toughness, he said. It took him nine years to develop the technique, consulting with experts in human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology and neurophysiology, Choi explained. Twenty-seven years later, Choi Kwang Do, with international headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., is taught in 40 different countries and regularly attracts converts who have trained in other martial art forms. We are growing very rapidly, actually, because of our concept, Choi said. The organization will expand with more schools in Florida in the next couple of years.

4A Largo Leader, March 27, 2014In this case, the order requesting 50 different items was placed Feb. 17 and shipped to a home in Laval, Quebec, later that day. When Tech Data identified the order as fraudulent, the company contacted UPS to try to stop the delivery, but the equipment had already arrived about an hour beforehand, at 8:04 a.m. Feb. 19. The company contacted the Largo Police Department to help intercept the stolen merchandise. Canadian authorities usually are reluctant to take up a case based on a private referral, Heim said. So Largos Detective Lara Young coordinated with police officials in Canada to obtain a search warrant at the address of the delivery. Canadian authorities arrested two people and were able to recover some of the stolen computer equipment, according to Largo police. Police Lt. Stephen Slaughter said he was proud of the investigative services division for their quick action. They jumped on the case within hours or the rest of the shipped equipment would have been gone, he said. More than $30,000 worth of equipment was not recovered from the Quebec home. Its our belief that its already gone to Russia, and theres not been great cooperation with the Russian authorities, Slaughter said. Heim said that in his experience tracing similar attacks through email communications and IP addresses, they almost always tie back to locations in Russia, typically in the St. Petersburg area. The two who were arrested arent cooperating, meaning that the equipment still unaccounted for likely wont be recovered, Heim said, though Canadian authorities continue to investigate. We want businesses to be aware and maintain their virus protection software. This is what can happen, Slaughter said. Offenders know that time is on their side. The two who were arrested are most likely unwitting participants in the scheme, charged with receiving the equipment and reshipping it overseas in a work-at-home set-up, Heim said. Its likely they wont know much of those behind the fraud anyway, Slaughter said. They wouldnt want somebody to have that much intimate knowledge, he explained. Heim said Tech Data has a system in place to track its customers order trends. An atypical order that is sent via expedited shipping to a residential address, as opposed to a business, will be flagged for manual review. If its found to be fraud, it will be canceled. Tech Data will follow up with its customer in this particular case, a Canadian IT reseller to let them know theyve been infected with a virus and walk them through what needs to be done to fix it. We would warn them too, its not just going to be Tech Data, but their other supplier accounts, Heim said. Cybercriminals usually order equipment like laptop computers, processors and hard drives. Since whatever they obtain is almost 100 percent profit, they can sell the equipment for prices dramatically less than their real worth. Theyre obviously selling on black market, Heim said. Still he said he was pleased with the collaboration with Largo police to jump all over this and recover some of the stolen merchandise. Most of Tech Datas corporate campus is within Largo city limits, at 5350 Tech Data Drive, near the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. The company is in the process of building a new 46,800square-foot office building on the campus. Six lanes dont mix well with safety, he said. Ken Jacobs, manager with the countys Traffic Division, said the corridor study involved creating balance to solve congestion and capacity problems. Staff now believes capacity enhancements can be made without making the entire corridor six lanes. He pointed out that transitions between six lanes and four lanes and around intersections would be critical. Its a balancing act the need for capacity and the need for pedestrians and bicyclists, he said. Staff is focused on making sure investments already made for the project are being used. These investments include prior design plans, permits and rights of way already purchased. Consultant Chris Lovett with Engineering Services URS Corporation in Tampa explained proposed plans for the different segments. The design maintains a minimum 19.5 median width for separation of the two-way traffic and provides left-turn lanes. The minimum lane width is 11 feet. The existing stormwater conveyance system will be used. Bus pads and connecting sidewalks will be incorporated. A continuous sidewalk along each side of the corridor away from the curb where right of way permits also is included, as are continuous bike lanes along each side of the road. Five intersections are targeted for capacity improvements, including Park Street at Tyrone Boulevard, Park Street at Park Boulevard, Starkey Road at Bryan Dairy Road, Starkey Road at Ulmerton Road and Starkey Road at East Bay Drive. The intersections are currently failing or will fail in the future, staff said. The goal is to improve the capacity at the intersection but not overbuild the links between. Transitions from the intersections to the narrow links are critical. The 7.5-mile project is divided into six segments with Segment 1 divided into three with sub-segments. County and MPO staff have been working with the cities of Seminole and Largo to address concerns. The section of Park Street from Tyrone Boulevard to north of 86th Avenue North, primarily on the west side, is adjacent to land within the city of Seminole. The section of Starkey Road from south of Ulmerton Road to East Bay Drive goes through the city of Largo. The remainder is located in unincorporated Pinellas.The segments Segment 1A runs from Tyrone Boulevard to 54th Avenue North. Current plans call for a fourlane urban roadway. The project completes the connection to 46th Avenue and addresses pedestrian safety concerns in the area. Design cost is $215,000 and construction $4.9 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2017-18. Segment 1B from 54th Avenue North to the Cross Bayou Canal Bridge is a four-lane project with a transition from 62nd Avenue to the six-lane bridge. It includes improvements for pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design cost is estimated at $215,000 and construction $5.3 million. It currently is not funded. 1C will be a six-lane road running from the south side of the bridge to 84th Lane North. Plans include widening of the functionally obsolete existing bridge to bring it up to standards and provide bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Design costs are budgeted at $220,000 and construction $4.6 million. It is funded and scheduled for construction in fiscal year 2015-16. Segments 2, 3 and 4 also will be a 6-lane road. Segment 2 runs from 84th Lane North to 82nd Avenue North and Segment 3 from 82nd Avenue North to 106th Avenue North. Segment 4 goes from 106th Avenue North to north of Bryan Dairy Road. Segment 2 includes an extended intersection improvement project to improve flow at Park Boulevard. Design cost is budgeted at $134,000 and construction $5.2 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2016-17. Segment 3 addresses continuity, pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design cost is estimated at $236,000 and construction $9.5 million. The project is not currently budgeted. Segment 4 provides improved traffic flow and connection to the Bryan Dairy Road project, Starkey Road to 72nd Street. Design cost was $63,000 and construction $4.2 million. The project is currently under construction. Segment 5, which runs from north of Bryan Dairy Road to 130th Avenue North, will be a 4-lane road with design features to address pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design costs are estimated at $220,000 and construction $6.2 million. Segment 5 is not currently funded. Plans for segment 6 call for a 5-lane road, three going northbound and two southbound. The project addresses traffic flow especially between Ulmerton Road and East Bay Drive and pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design is estimated to cost $550,000 and construction $8.8 million. The project is not currently funded. Lovett estimated cost for the unfunded segments at about $30 million. He said segments had been funded putting those with prior investments design costs and purchases of permits or right of way at the top of the list. The next consideration was need. This will give the biggest bang for the taxpayers money, Lovett said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said he did not know if additional money for the project would be available until it gets closer to the end of collection of the current Penny for Pinellas. The road project Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTYPinellas County is rethinking plans for improving the 7.5-mile Park Street/Starkey Road corridor.first appeared on the Penny for Pinellas funding list in 1989. Commission Chair Karen Seel pointed out that costs for the three funded segments were less than budgeted. We might have some funding for another segment, she said. STARKEY, from page 1A CYBERCRIME, from page 1A mostly by a brown chicken named Poppy. Shes large and in charge, Maloney said. The chickens stay within their fenced area and make less noise than many dogs, she said. Shes never had any complaints from her neighbors. In fact, one of her neighbors on Ridge Road, Largo Commissioner Woody Brown, said he never smells and rarely hears Maloneys flock. After much research with his wife Jenny, the family decided to begin a flock of three chickens last year, Brown said. They provide for fresh eggs, and a cool learning experience for the boys, the commissioner wrote in an email. We really enjoy it, and we know what the chickens that give us eggs are eating. The city of Largo has allowed backyard chicken coops for some time, though the city ordinance on the issue is a bit vague. Specifically, the city prohibits chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and guinea fowl from running at large within the city and requires that the birds are securely fenced and confined within the owners property. Coops are to be kept clean and free from offensive odors, the ordinance states. The city also has a noise ordinance, which does not look kindly upon roosters, who crow all day, not just to announce the morning, Maloney explained. But roosters arent expressly banned and the ordinance does limit the size of residents flock. Maloney said 12 is plenty for her. I think there are many more backyard chicken coops in Largo than most realize, Brown said. Recently, a Largo resident emailed commissioners to ask them to prohibit chickens from the city. The sound of roosters should not be in the landscape of a very dense, congested city, wrote Bruce Dennis. To violate the noise ordinance, a code enforcement officer must be present with a noise meter to make the determination, building official Bill Ondulich wrote in response. Roosters do crow regularly at Martins Farm, a residential property in Largo run by Sandi Martin LaRoche and her husband, Dawn. In fact, the farm serves as a rescue facility for chickens and various other farm animals. The local SPCA, Animal Control, Humane Society and even city of Largo code enforcement officials bring stray fowl to her farm, LaRoche said. She finds homes for the unwanted farm animals and purchases and sells chicks as a regular part of her business. We get 100 (chick) babies brought in every month, and they go like little hotcakes, LaRoche said. People come every weekend. She said she couldnt guess how many residents in Largo and Pinellas County own chickens, but its a growing trend. There sure are a lot more since we started selling, she said. People are a lot more self-sufficient. They want to grow their own eggs. Outside of Largo, chickens are allowed in the cities of Belleair, Dunedin, Gulfport and St. Petersburg, as well as in unincorporated Pinellas County, according to an online tally by Pinellas County Citizens for Backyard Poultry. Martins Farm started taking in rescued chickens about 15 years ago. Then people started asking for chicks, wanting to buy only two or three, not 25 at a time as they usually sold. LaRoche realized she could be choosy in what chickens she kept for herself and sell the rest. She now can offer up to 50 different breeds that lay eggs from chocolate brown to green, all purebred. Along with baby chicks, the LaRoches keep and sell geese, pheasant, quail and peacocks. I only buy (chickens) for pets and eggs. No meat birds, she clarified, adding that shes had requests for butchered chickens. I just cant. We tell people, If you name it, you dont eat it. Martins Farm also furnishes schools with fertilized eggs to hatch in the classroom, taking the chicks back after the lesson is over so they can find permanent homes for them. She provides about 40 to 50 dozen eggs a year to different schools in Pinellas County and Tampa throughout the school year. Theres nothing more precious than watching a baby hatch. And kids dont get to see that anymore, LaRoche said. Like the school-hatched chicks, Maloneys chickens that proved to be roosters ended up back at Martins Farm. LaRoche said she pays to determine the sex of the chicks she sells, so her customers are guaranteed hens. After all, its the hens that lay eggs; the roosters only become a noise violation. Business picks up in the spring, especially around Easter, up until school lets out, LaRoche said. Martins Farm, at 990 Donegan Road, is open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 585-1110.Photos by JULIANA A.

During a news conference, the sheriff explained the revised policy is first and foremost intended to mitigate the risk for officer safety, as well as public safety. Furthermore, the policy is intended to provide deputies bookends to do their work, allow them to use their judgment and exercise good discretion, Gualtieri said. The main revisions to the policy include the following: A sworn member may engage in a vehicle pursuit only when: It is necessary to apprehend a person because he or she committed a crime and, by their criminal conduct, the suspect constitutes an imminent and/or continuous threat to the safety of any person if not apprehended. Per the policy, the crime or criminal conduct constitutes a forcible felony, except unarmed burglary or burglary where the sole underlying crime is a property crime; arson that resulted only in property damage; aggravated assault, unless the aggravated assault involved the use of a firearm or other weapon. Or, it is necessary to apprehend a driver of a vehicle because he or she by their extremely dangerous driving poses an imminent threat of great bodily harm to any person if not immediately stopped and apprehended. In the previous policy, what met the threshold of a pursuit included: A sworn member could engage in a vehicle pursuit only when: There is reasonable suspicion the violator posed an imminent threat and or continuous threat. The threat had to be attributed to either suspected criminal conduct or ongoing aggressive and/or reckless driving. The revision of the pursuit policy began about a year ago and took into consideration input from members across the agency to develop a solid and workable policy. Gualtieri initiated the plans to revise the policy and set a new tone as it relates to pursuits when the time frame between 2011 and 2012 showed an increase in pursuits and reflected some instance of non-compliance with the pursuit policy at the time. Since the changes began to be instituted, the sheriff cited a 54 percent drop in pursuits between 2012 and 2013; and considerable modification to the behavior for engagement in a pursuit. The new policy became effective March 17.

According to the media release, a heavyset white female in her 50s took the shoe about 5:20 p.m. Sunday, March 16. The shoe is valued at $5,500. Four white females possibly from Michigan on spring break came into Hogans Beach Shop at 5:16 p.m. Four minutes later, a large statue of Hogan fell over outside the premises, and store workers were temporarily distracted. Thats when the theft occurred. Employees did not know the shoe was missing until Tuesday evening when they checked store security cameras and saw the theft.Man arrested for attacking seagullCLEARWATER A 21-year-old Illinois man was charged with animal cruelty March 19 after using part of a beach umbrella to hit a seagull. Ryan David Lesle of Western Springs, Ill., was booked at the Pinellas County Jail at 9:37 p.m. on the felony charge of cruelty to animals. He was released on $5,000 bond at 2:46 a.m. Clearwater police said Lesle was annoyed by a flock of seagulls near him and his friends south of Pier 80 near Tower 3, so he used the lower pole part of an umbrella to swing at the birds. After injuring a bird, he used the pole again to try to put the bird out of its misery. Someone from a local veterinarian facility responded and euthanized the bird.Detectives seek Seminole fraud suspectsSEMINOLE Detectives assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Economic Crimes Unit are seeking the publics assistance in locating two credit card fraud/identity theft suspects from Seminole. The first theft occurred Saturday, Feb. 1, between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Aldi grocery store at 24756 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater. The second theft was on Sunday, Feb. 2, between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Aldi grocery store at 7777 Seminole Blvd. in Seminole. According to detectives, the two suspects enter grocery stores and look for opportune times to remove wallets from opened purses left on the upper carrier of grocery carts or being carried by unsuspecting shoppers that are momentarily pre-occupied. The first suspect removes wallets from the shoppers while the second acts as a lookout. The first suspect is described as a black female in her mid-30s, 5-feet, 5-inches to 5-feet, 9-inches tall, approximately 150 pounds with black shoulder length straight hair. She was last seen wearing a light colored sweater with horizontal stripes and a dark colored shirt underneath and yellow slacks. The second suspect is described as a black female in her mid-30s, 5-feet, 2 inches to 5-feet, 5-inches tall, approximately 160 to 180 pounds. She was last seen wearing her hair pulled back in a ponytail with sunglasses on her head, a red and white checkered/plaid short-sleeve shirt, jeans, tennis shoes and a watch on her left wrist. She also walks with a limp. The two suspects have been seen traveling in a newer model silver Chrysler mini-van with the first suspect driving. Anyone with information on these thefts is asked to contact Detective J. Cangemi of the Economic Crimes Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.Florida lawmakers pass tax relief billrvehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. The legislature increased vehicle registration fees to help balance the budget in 2009, when state general revenue collections declined more than 22 percent since their high in 2005-2006, officials said. Now, theyre reversing that action. Gov. Scott praised the Senate for passing the bill. He released a statement March 18 that talked about how critical the bill was to his $500 million Its Your Money campaign. This tax cut will let families keep nearly $400 million of their hard-earned money in their own pockets, Scott said. Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson took a proactive stand to help local residents save money. On March 12, well before the legislature voted on the measure, Nelson removed 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. A conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration shows that Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. However, residents can still renew their registrations for two years if they prefer. 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. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz announced in January details of a five-point Work Plan 2014, which prioritized tax relief. A reduction on annual vehicle registration fees was one of the five. The House and Senate have already passed two others, legislation to protect Floridas children from sexual predators as well as the Florida GI Bill. The GI Bill increases education and employment opportunities for the states veterans, including an increase in funding for Educational Dollars for Duty. It also allows out-of-state veterans to receive in-state tuition rates through the C.W. Bill Young Veteran Tuition Waiver Program. The bill provides $300,000 to Visit Florida to spend to encourage veterans to make Florida their home. It also enhances hiring preferences for veterans and spouses of veterans who died in combat for government jobs and allows private employers to do the same. Four separate bills were passed By SUZETTE PORTERUnanimous votes by Floridas House and Senate leaves the fate of $395 million in tax relief in the hands of Gov. Rick Scott. The bill passed March 18 by the Senate and March 20 by the House reduces certain annual vehicle registration fees, totaling $395 million in savings. Starting Sept. 1, fees to register a motor vehicle will drop to the amount paid prior to 2009. Registration costs will go down by $25.05 for heavy weight Photo by RICH SHEPPARDAna Beatriz of Brazil is followed closely around a turn during last years Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

This was the Third Day of creation hence the name of our company, Third Day Landscaping By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Beaches that were nourished fared better than those that were not when Super Sandy hit New Jersey in 2012. That was just one lesson shared during an American Shore and Beach Association Summit attended by Pinellas Countys Coastal and Freshwater Resources Manager Andy Squires. Squires provided Pinellas County Commissioners with an update on beach nourishment during the March 18 regular meeting. He spent some time talking about what he learned during the Feb. 2527 gathering of the nations coastal managers and scientists in Washington, D.C. One pressing matter is a possible decrease in funding from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for beaches. He said the Corps belt tightening could affect existing projects and work projects. They have a number of things on the plate, he said. Due to budgetary constraints, the Corps is evaluating its priorities, which could be a problem for future projects, such as ongoing beach nourishment. The Corps top priority will be meeting the financial challenge of meeting operations and maintenance needs, Squires said. Consequently, the Corps is reluctant to begin new funding commitments. Squires reminded commissioners of the 50year federal authorization for Treasure Island that ends in 2019. Authorization for Long Key expires in 2030 and 2043 in Sand Key. Continued federal funding may decline in the near term and end upon authorization expiration dates, Squires said in a memo to David Scott, executive director of the Department of Environment and Infrastructure. The Corps plans to transition into a watershedbased budgeting process, Squires said. Officials at the Corps headquarters advised Squires and other proponents of beach nourishment attending the February meeting to bundle projects to maximize benefits. Squires gave the example of bundling beach nourishment with dredging to use the same contractor for multiple projects. Pinellas County already bundles projects. Materials from dredging channels and inlets for navigation and flushing improvements go to nourish Gulf beaches. My overall impression is they are not optimistic or pessimistic, but neutral, he said. The Corps requested more interaction with outside agencies and requested frequent meetings with American Shore & Beach Association, which Squires said it would do. Another pressing matter is passage of the Water Resource Development Act by Congress, which Squires discussed with a staff member from Florida Sen. Bill Nelsons office. He also talked to the countys new federal lobbyist. Im a little bit depressed about federal funding opportunities. We need to be prepared to lose funding levels, Squires said. In Squires memo to Scott, he talked about the many years the county had benefitted from reliable federal support for nourishing the three developed barrier islands Sand Key, Treasure Island and Long Key. Over the last 40 years, $100 million has been put to good use nourishing the countys three beaches, he said. This was largely due to congressional earmarks, thanks to the late Congressman Bill Young, Squires said. Now, there are no more earmarks and no more help coming from Young. With competition for federal funding becoming more challenging, it is time to look toward state and local dollars to pay for new sand on area beaches. He said the state had budgeted less than half of an estimated $90 million needed to keep Floridas beaches nourished. Squires said it costs about $10 million a year to keep local beaches nourished with about half the money coming from federal funding in the past. We need to talk to state representatives and start looking to the bed tax for a larger portion, he said.Hard times ahead? County focuses on beach nourishment funding Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERCoastal & Freshwater Resources Manager Andy Squires updates to Pinellas County Commissioners March 18 about possible funding cuts for beach nourishment. BriefsProperty taxes due Monday, March 31CLEARWATER Tax Collector Diane Nelson reminds Pinellas County property owners of the upcoming March 31 payment deadlines for 2013 property taxes. Property owners have multiple options for paying their taxes, but the deadlines vary depending on the payment method: Online payments via www.taxcollect.com: Due by 11:55 p.m. Monday, March 31 Mail-in payments: Must be postmarked with a date on, or prior to, Monday, March 31 In-person and drop-box payments: Due by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 31, 2014 Payments received after the respective deadlines will be considered delinquent and will begin to accrue interest at 3 percent. For convenience, the tax collectors office encourages taxpayers to pay online at www.taxcollect.com, where payments can be made through an electronic check feature that securely transfers funds directly from a bank account. Credit card payments also are accepted online. The 2013 tax roll included 410,081 tax bills that were mailed to Pinellas County property owners at the end of October in 2013. The tax collectors office sent reminder notices to owners with unpaid bills at the beginning of March 2014. For more information about tax deadlines or other Pinellas County Tax Collector services, visit www.taxcollect.com or call 727-464-7777 to speak with a customer service representative.New website reveals countys spendingCLEARWATER A new Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view financial transactions by the Clerk and the Circuit Court and Pinellas County Commissioners. The website is the latest offering by the county to provide citizens an electronically accessed, transparent view of government activities. The Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view detailed financial transactions down to the invoice level, and if applicable, the check number and funding source across both departments. The site offers multiple methods of searching for information under various categories including by vendor, department and spending. The site also provides records of salary expenditures for employees under both entities. Tutorial videos are placed on each tab of the site to help users navigate the different functions associated with each type of search. Users also are able to export data into multiple programs. Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke requested the in-house project be developed to offer citizens an easy-to-use, convenient way to view government spending. I am very pleased that all Pinellas County citizens will now be able to open the books, so to speak, and view government spending on their behalf, Burke said. I wanted to eliminate any barrier to being absolutely transparent. With Spending in the Sunshine, I believe we have accomplished just that a companion piece to the states sunshine laws regarding open record keeping. The project was led by Clerk of the Circuit Court Internet technology staff and developed by staff in Pinellas Countys Business Technology Services division, leveraging the countys recent investment in the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise business planning and financial application.

Two were baseball games, the USF Bulls and the Tampa Bay Rays, and the other two were my girls softball games. As I was thinking about the games, I was reminded about how good it is for kids to be involved in sports. My two daughters have been playing sports since they were 4 and 5 years old. The first sport they wanted to play was tennis. I think they started out with tennis because their cousins played tennis. The next sport was soccer, then T-ball, baseball and this year, theyre playing softball. Being in sports has helped my girls in so many ways. They learn how to win and to lose. They learn how to play as a team and as an individual. They learn how to work for a goal. They also learn camaraderie and sportsmanship. Another benefit is they are exercising. Since my kids are young, only 8 and 9 years old, they are still learning how to play. This is the first year they have played softball. Most of the kids on the team are learning the positions, how to throw, pitch and catch. In just a few weeks, I have already seen an improvement. My husband and I always try to encourage our kids. Sometimes they get upset if they strike out, dont get a hit or make a bad play. While we were at the Rays spring training game, we were able to show the girls that even the professionals strike out and dont get hits every time. They even make errors, but they dont let it get them down and they get right back in the game. My daughter Graci and I attended the USF baseball game to watch one of my sisters sing the national anthem. While we were there, we not only saw the baseball game, but also had the chance to see the girls softball team play for a few minutes. It was a great chance to tell my daughter that if she gets good enough, she could get a scholarship and play softball for college if she wants. By the way, if you havent been to USF for a game, its pretty neat how the baseball and softball fields are right next to each other. The stadiums are beautiful and kids get in free to the games. Its a wonderful experience. Graci even got to be the kid announcer during the fourth inning and go into the press box to announce the Bulls players who were batting that inning. That made her day! I know from my own experience that when I was playing sports and Ashley Brooke Hammond and Scott GeigerHammond-GeigerAshley Brooke Hammond and Scott Geiger are engaged to be married. Ashley is the daughter of Kim Hammond of Seminole and Mike and Jeni Hammond of Sandusky, Ohio; and granddaughter of the late Richard and Arlene Van Curen of Seminole. She is a 2002 graduate of Seminole High School. She received a business degree from the University of South Florida and is a CPA. Geiger is the son of Bill and Penny Geiger of Tampa. He also is a Seminole High School graduate and graduated from Florida State University with a few masters degrees. A wedding date has been set for June 2014. Photo by KADI HENDRICKS TUBBSGraci Tubbs, center, helped announce the lineup during the fourth inning of a USF Bulls baseball game on March 16. She is pictured with USF baseball announcer Alfredo Muente and marketing coordinator Allison Minisce.going to school, I didnt have time to do much else. I played soccer, basketball and softball. I wasnt good enough to go to college on a scholarship, but I still enjoyed playing. I think it was even more important for kids to play sports in middle and high school because those are the years that kids seem to get into trouble if they dont have anything to do. When you are involved in sports, you dont have time to be bored and get into trouble. The other good thing is you have to keep up your grades to play sports.

12A Viewpoints Leader, March 27, 2014We reveal who we are in several ways: how we speak, what we eat, our styles of dress, what we laugh at, what makes us angry or happy, and so on. Also, how we drive our cars. Or so says Emanuel W. Ricochet, Ph.D., director of the Final Skidoo Research Institute of Elkins, Ky. He has studied thousands of motorists, trying to link their personalities and backgrounds to the way they operate their motor vehicles under varied situations. For example, Dr. Ricochet says he has learned that red-haired women with dimples tend to flirt with other motorists more frequently than non-dimpled women with dark hair. When asked why this is true, Dr. Ricochet said, It has something to do with genetics as it relates to the Big Bang and the invention of the hydramatic shift by Olds or Ford by one of those guys. One of their wives was red-haired and dimpled, and things just sort of went out of control from that point. Other findings of the FSRI are as follows: Presbyterians aged 50 and over seldom check their rear-view and side mirrors before passing other cars. The FSRI report said, These normally well-mannered folks eventually get tired of straggling along behind the other guy. When this happens they suddenly pull out and give it the gas. Our best guess is that Presbyterians believe in pre-destination, which says when your time is up theres not much you can do about it. So why waste time looking out for other cars? Motorists who text while driving are usually lousy spellers. Researchers learned this by examining the cellphones of drivers who were killed or seriously injured in highway crashes. The low level of the drivers intelligence was indicated not only by their texting while driving, but also by their inability to correctly spell such common words as awesome and Miley Cyrus. Drivers who engage in cosmetic behavior, such as shaving or putting on makeup while underway, tend to have shorter life spans than persons who pay close attention to recommended safety measures. An FSRI report said, Motorists who persist in checking their facial appearance in the rear-view mirror are usually self-centered, narcissistic and frequently dead. Michigan residents who move to Florida tend to believe that Florida has the worst drivers in the nation. Florida motorists feel the same way about Canadian motorists. Fewer than 6 percent of drivers in any state believe that local drivers are competent and trustworthy. An unusually high percentage of male drivers arrested for road-rage behavior were found to possess active prescriptions for Viagra, Cialis and other erectile dysfunction drugs. FSRI physicians said, Although we cannot prove any necessary connection between road rage and sexual frustration, we suspect that one exists. If Sigmund Freud were still alive were sure he would see the link between a flaccid schwantstucher and its angry owner flipping the bird at other drivers. When interviewed, 44 percent of Pinellas County motorists said they did not realize that the left lane is the recommended one for passing another motorist. A typical response was, If Im in the left lane and going too slow, the other guy still has the right-hand lane to pass me, doesnt he? So whats the problem? Another local finding was that long-time Pinellas motorists often become confused while driving on Tyrone Boulevard and the few other hypotenuse streets that are found here. These are the streets that are not part of the standard north-south and east-west grid. The FSRI said, When these drivers suddenly realize they are traveling northwest or southeast, they become disoriented and afraid that they have been somehow transported to Boston or other cities with street plans designed by drunken madmen. According to the FSRI research, politically conservative drivers and liberal drivers are not much different from each other when it comes to safety, road courtesy, and obeying traffic laws. However, some contrasts do exist. Conservatives have better hearing, because they choose to listen to gospel music and Rush Limbaugh broadcasts, which can be performed at a lower volume. Many liberals especially those under age 25 are slightly deaf from playing rock music so loudly that the resulting vibrations loosen dental fillings of motorists in nearby cars. Dr. Ricochet said he looks forward to an upcoming study in which motorists will be asked about their attitudes toward car manufacturers. He said, We want to find motorists reaction to recent news stories in which General Motors and Toyota were revealed as callous, profit-hungry and contemptuous of their customers safety. In the face of these findings, motorists who persist in driving GM and Toyota vehicles are likely to score high on our naive and downright stupid scales. Or perhaps well just call them adventurous risk-takers.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Study: Who we are is how we drive Drivers SeatBob Driver Floridians menaced by inflation Hotel preservationists should heed common senseEditors: Opinions are like noses, we all have one. However, to vehemently espouse preserving the Belleview Biltmore hotel without the facts is divisive and causing our town of Belleair to choose sides. You have lost sight of the fact that the town does not own the hotel. It is a private enterprise and not part of the towns Parks and Recreation Department. Your anger and frustration is misdirected. Rather than chide the commission you should be chiding Kawa, Richard Heisenbottle, R.C. Johnson and D. Hein, all consummate prevaricators. They have been dangling the carrot in front of you and twisting the facts. Some of you have suggested the commissioners insist the present owners sell only to those who will restore the hotel. Can you imagine telling you whom you can market your home to? Have you never heard of private property rights? Some are jumping the gun and drawing conclusions without knowing the facts, i.e. Cheezems cheesy cookie cutter condo clusters. If you would wait, like youre asking us to wait, youd hear Mr. Cheezems plan rather than using your clever alliteration, which is counterproductive. We have waited patiently for five years for Heisenbottle to close the deal. How much longer can we wait? We have heard you, many from out of town, pound on the podium calling the hotel the heart and soul of Belleair. If that be the case, the town should be dead, as the hotel has been shuttered since January 2009. Your untruths and inaccuracies coupled with baseless accusations border on slander. Youre noisy, fact-baiting and are often irrational. Heres a partial list of your preposterous, inaccurate statements: Shovel ready project scheduled to start Jan. of 2013; economic feasibility has been validated by financers who will fund it; there are legitimate groups making offers to buy and restore; give Heisenbottle more time, there are more buyers in the wings; construction of townhomes and condos would almost certainly decrease the property values of existing condos; the hotel is in good condition and can be restored. As late as February Heisenbottle said, I have a solid commitment, were very close to a deal. These investors with the funds are as illusive as Ms. Hein. Ive asked numerous people, including reporters, if theyve ever set eyes on this woman who has a propensity for stirring up the pot with misleading statements. They all deny having met her. Not so for Ms R.C. Johnson, who is a regular at town meetings with her charts and documents. Johnson continues to question the credentials of our town attorney and our city planner. I ask where are her credentials and those of her minions who shout, accuse and disrupt, insisting the hotel can be restored? You are waiting for a miracle that is not coming, grasping at straws, and dreaming of preservation that is too expensive to come true. Commissioner Stephen Fowler, an avowed preservationist, said, Im saying slow down, with the economy recovering, Im firmly convinced that its doable. This from a man who admits to not being a money kind of guy. You have been comparing the Belleview Biltmore Hotel to the Don CeSar and the Vinoy, which is like comparing a funeral to a wedding; the Don being on the beach and the Vinoy being in the heart of a vibrant city on the waterfront. Maybe plans to renovate the hotel were too complicated and grandiose. There was never a Plan B suggested. We now have one being presented by Mike Cheezem, which entails a mixed-use approach. Lets listen to his plan and listen with our heads and not our hearts. It appears that common sense may be prevailing and preserving the hotel may no longer be a viable option. So please step away from the podium, cease and desist writing vitriolic accusatory letters and emails and let capitalism work. Lil Cromer BelleairIn memory of NikkiEditor: Do you know what rat poison looks like? After what happened to me, please find out. On Saturday, Feb. 22, my beautiful, yellow Labrador, Nikki, died from ingesting rat poison. Somehow, rat poison found its way into my backyard. I know this because I found some there after Nikki passed. The piece I found was a bright green color with specks. It didnt look dangerous. It looked like something a child might pick up to play with. I was told that either an animal dragged it into my yard from a neighbors yard or that someone threw it over my fence. I have lived in Belleair for 26 years, and never in a million years, could I imagine that my sweet, loving dog would be poisoned. Please find out what rat poison looks like. You can Google rat poison images. Please find out. It is horrific to watch your dog die from ingesting rat poison. My hope is that this announcement will inform people, so this does not happen again. It would give me solace to know that Nikki did not die in vain. Melinda Moreschi BelleairToo much commercialism on the beachEditor: Dear Treasure Island decision makers and all visitors of the beach: I am writing today about the boats pulling blimps and the planes dragging banners along the beaches. We are inundated with commercialism at every turn, in every corner, and at a constant and furious pace. Why? Please. Why does the city of Treasure Island allow this to happen in a place that residents and tourist alike go to vacate the madness? We want to hear surf, birds, and the voice of a person sitting next to us, not the roar of a small plane slowly dragging a banner that propels us back to the real world and makes us wonder if our auto insurance offers the best rate. We dont want these thoughts. Weve gone to the beach to vacate our lives for a period of time, and residents and tourists alike pay a hefty price to do so. And yet, even here, we are victims to more calls to consumerism. For the love of peace and to uphold the value of what vacation and holiday should still embody, please forbid this activity in the air and water space of Treasure Island. Be trendsetters. Stand up for what is right. Protect the little bit of precious freedom we have from consumerism. If I wanted Miami Id go to Miami. Gina Tracy Treasure IslandKudos for Seminoles recycling programEditor: I recently visited the website of the city of Seminole. In particular, I visited the wonderful posting for the Department of Public Works. I am thrilled to learn that Waste Management will deliver 64-gallon recycle carts to residential customers in March 2014. The enhanced recycling program is scheduled to begin the first week of April 2014. Seminole residential customers will be able to place aluminum and steel cans, cardboard, cartons, all color glass, mixed paper, newspapers, and plastic bottles (with caps removed). Of course, NO plastic bags should be placed into the recycle cart. This is wonderful progress for Seminoles recycling program. Congratulations to the city for making this important program grow. Mary Hampton SeminoleInaction has consequencesEditor: In the March 13 issue or the Seminole Beacon I read Mr. Drivers column on being a stoic. What came to mind were the approximately 400,000 people registered to vote in Pinellas County who did not cast ballots in the election to fill C.W. Youngs congressional seat. Whatever belief a person may have Democracy to stay effective demands participation. Shame on such inaction because inaction in itself is action and has consequences. David Robinson St Petersburg Living today, even by Florida standards, is pricey. The average cost for a loaf of bread is $1.41 as opposed to $1.08 five years ago and 88 cents in 2000. The average per pound cost for bananas now is 62 cents, 50 cents five years ago, and 35 cents back in 1999. A pound of bacon is $4.54, $3.44 five years ago, and just $2.47 15 years ago. The average cost of a gallon of gasoline today is $3.50. In 2007 it was $2.80; $1.36 in 2002; $1.13 in 1992; 65 cents in 1977, and 31 cents in 1962. Im old enough to remember gas prices in the teens and when windshields were washed and oil, air and water was checked. The attendant waved farewell with a fist full of S&H Green Stamps. Today, big oil and other industries boast billions in profits while paychecks remain stagnant as skyrocketing living expenses crush Americans into submission. Even a trip to the happiest place of all ... Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom ... costs $99 plus tax. Thats in addition to a $15 parking fee and the inflated prices for food and soft drinks. Its outrageous to visit parks that are little more than glorified shopping malls for Disney merchandise. Working Americans feel the brunt of the challenges to meet everyday expenditures. Many companies are reducing manpower, hours and sending jobs overseas. Full timers who enjoyed company-paid medical care, sick leave, vacations and other benefits face demotion to part-time status to circumvent federal and state employment laws. One restaurant chain has even announced that it may soon add an employee insurance surcharge to meals. The Consumer Price Index indicates that it costs $3,632 in Tampa Bay to maintain the same standard of living that costs, for example, $6,500 in New York. That means consumer prices here are 23.87 percent lower. Renting an apartment or home is 65.80 percent higher in the Northeast, groceries are 19.57 percent lower in Tampa Bay, while overall purchasing power is 41.77 percent higher than in New York. Compared to other states, its still cheaper to live in Tampa Bay when state income taxes (we dont have them) are factored in, along with transportation costs ($13 to cross the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey), as opposed to less than $2 at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge tollbooth. Florida property taxes that seem excessive to some really are dirt-cheap. My property tax is less than $1,000 annually. The rate on a home I once owned in New Jersey nudges $11,000 ... thats eleven thousand dollars! Some may argue that workers in major U.S. cities earn more money than their counterparts in the Southeast. In Florida, for example, a customer service representative earns roughly $12 an hour while an administrative assistant rakes in a few pennies more. Statistically, Floridians earn 6 percent less than workers in most other states. Now lets take a look at our New York example where a customer service representative earns $43,000 annually. Meanwhile, the minimum wage worker will earn $8.75 an hour this coming December, and a quarter more to $9-an-hour in December 2015. Floridas minimum wage rose by 14 cents last January, or 68 cents higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Thus, there are thousands of Americans holding on for dear life so they dont fall below the poverty line. So how does a low wage worker find money for the mortgage, rent, car payments, groceries, insurance, clothes, and all the other expenses on roughly $400 a week after taxes? They dont, and thats why so many gainfully employed workers depend on government subsidies for food, housing and health care in order to survive. Some municipalities, like Pinellas Parks Angel Fund, helps some low wage earners pay utility bills. Food banks operated by churches and civic groups offer free groceries to the working poor. Some corporate executives actually advise their minimum wage workers on ways to obtain various forms of public assistance, including Medicaid, rather than pay a decent salary. According to a study by the University of California at Berkeley, more than half of Americas minimum wage workers rely on at least one government public assistance program to support their families. Taxpayers are on the hook for $7 billion annually thanks to one major burger chain that offers take it or leave it minimal wages, no benefits, and limited work hours. The fast food industry combined is said to cost taxpayers an estimated $3.8 billion annually in government subsidies for the working poor. The Obama Administration is pushing for a federal minimum wage of $10.10 an hour by 2016. That would help roughly a million Floridians in the hotel, restaurant and service industries who live in a state that has the second-largest number of minimum wage workers, only after Texas. And so it goes for struggling Americans who are living paycheck to paycheck while trying to eke out a living. Meanwhile, the price of gasoline, groceries and insurance continues to escalate while big business reaps in the profits.Thomas Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com.

Seminole High School senior Anthony Zsido, son of Daniel and Michele Zsido, earned the rank of Eagle Scout at his board of review Jan. 13. For his Eagle Scout project, Anthony designed, built and installed six park benches along the Preservation 2000 nature trail just east of the Botanical Gardens in Largo. He coordinated the Scout troop and volunteers to complete the project. Anthony joined the Cub Scouts along with his father, who also is an Eagle Scout, when he was in the first grade. Through the years, they were involved in numerous community projects and campouts and had the honor to attend the 100th anniversary of The Boy Scouts of America in 2010 at the National Scout jamboree, at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Eagle Scouts are required to earn 21 merit badges to complete the requirements necessary to achieve this highest honor in scouting. Anthony exceeded this by earning a total of 39 badges and also held many positions within Troop 431 such as scribe, patrol leader and mentor. While involved in scouting, Anthony also played saxophone in the Seminole Middle and Seminole High School bands. For three of his four years in high school, he played football for the Seminole Warhawks. Anthony plans to continue his education in exercise science and business management at St. Petersburg College and the University of South Florida. Bernard Anthony Kazmierski III son of Mary Nebroski Kazmierski and the late Bernard Anthony Kazmierski Jr., of Seminole, joined Troop 431 at Blessed Sacrament Church as a Cub Scout in first grade. With his fathers guidance, he proceeded through the ranks and participated in all the events and community service available. He became an Eagle Scout at a board of review in Largo Dec. 9. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor and dinner will honor Bernard and two other Scouts Saturday, April 5, at Blessed Sacrament banquet hall in Seminole. Bernards Eagle Scout status is very near and dear to his heart. His father was an Eagle Scout and had encouraged him throughout the years to seek this goal. Unfortunately his father did not get to witness him achieve this level. For his Eagle Scout project, Bernard chose to build an enclosed greenhouse so that the homeless could start seedlings and plants to transfer to their gardens at Pinellas Hope, a subsidiary of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. He drafted the plans, purchased all the necessary supplies and coordinated the Scout troop and volunteers through completion. He chose this project because his family had helped serve meals there for four years, and he wanted to do a project that would help these homeless people live a better life. In addition to his service with the Scouts, Bernards artwork has won awards at the Florida State Fair for six years straight. At Seminole schools, he played the trumpet and tenor sax in the high school band, jazz concerts and was a member of the marching band that was invited to march in the Macys annual Thanksgiving Day parade. He has played basketball, soccer and also participated with his family in 5K races. In Bernards first year of high school, he decided to attend St. Petersburg Collegiate High School for his remaining three years. He has maintained a GPA of 4.3, is a member of National Honor Society and Phi Theta Kappa. He will graduate with a high school diploma as well as an Associates of Arts degree. He would like to major in architecture, at a college yet to be chosen.

The guest of honor and featured speaker will be Floridas First Lady, Ann Scott. A number of local officials are also expected to attend the event and bring official greetings recognizing the clubs golden anniversary. We are simply thrilled the governors wife has accepted our invitation to attend the anniversary event, said BWRC President Claudia Thomas, in a press release. Her attendance emphasizes the importance of this special day. Fifty years is quite a milestone for our group, one of the oldest, most active and most respected womens Republican clubs in the state. Thomas has already received a number of proclamations recognizing BWRCs anniversary and achievements, including one from the City of Safety Harbor naming April Belleair Womens Republican Club Month. She is hoping Mrs. Scott will bring birthday greetings to the club from her husband. It would be just wonderful to have our governor take note of all the club has done to promote Republican candidates and causes in Pinellas County over the last 50 years, Thomas said. The BWRC Birthday Bash will be held at Belleair Country Club, One Country Club Lane, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to Mrs. Scotts appearance, plans for the event include special decorations, music and other entertainment, a display of club memorabilia and party favors.

Registered Republicans are welcome to attend the BWRC Birthday Bash, but must make a reservation and pay ahead of time, as space is limited. The cost is $25 and must be received by April 1.

Ft. 032714 Photo by JIM LAYFIELDAn eastern screech owl takes up residence in a birdhouse in the Shadow Pines subdivision in Largo March 23.A lofty abodeFour dive boat operators charged with illegally feeding sharksInvestigators with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have filed charges against four men linked to the illegal feeding of sharks and fish within state waters. The investigation started after the FWC received several complaints that shark feeding was taking place off the coast of Palm Beach County during dive charter trips. One complainant told dispatchers she was on a dive trip where sharks were being fed. The person said the sharks had become so aggressive she had to get out of the water. This is a public safety issue, said FWC Maj. Camille Soverel. The FWCs Division of Law Enforcement wants to ensure these beautiful coastal waters remain safe for divers. FWC investigators and the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office, working jointly, conducted two separate investigations involving two northern Palm Beach County dive charter operators. On Feb. 8, deputies from the PBSO dive team took part in a dive trip on board Emerald Charters of Jupiter. During the dive, video was taken of Randall Jordan feeding sharks by hand while within state waters. He also used a milk crate filled with fish chunks to lure sharks to his location. Thomas Smith was operating the vessel during the dive. On Feb. 22, the deputies took another dive trip on board the vessel Miss Jackie, which is owned by Luis Roman of Orlando and operated by Toni Crumrine. The Lake Park-based company Calypso Dive Charters used the boat. During this trip, deputies took videos of Roman feeding a goliath grouper and a lemon shark. Video also shows Roman trying to lure sharks to his location by shaking a milk crate filled with barracuda chunks. Both feeding incidents happened in state waters. FWC investigators and PBSO divers used several GPS devices and other methods to confirm these activities were occurring in state waters, which, in the Atlantic, is within (or up to) 3 nautical miles from the nearest point of Florida coastline. Fish feeding in Florida waters has been illegal since 2002. The FWC presented results from the joint investigations to the Palm Beach County State Attorneys Office, which charged Jordan, Smith, Roman and Crumrine with operating a vessel for hire within state waters to allow passengers to observe fish feeding. Jordan and Roman also were charged with fish feeding. These are second-degree misdemeanors, punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500. Kingfish, mackerel invading local watersKingfish and Spanish mackerel have made their spring arrival to our area. Over the next couple of months they will be reliable targets. With each passing cold front thats quickly followed by warming weather, we should see the numbers of these highly migratory fish increase. Being prepared for the arrival of kingfish will give you the confidence needed to hopefully cash in on this great gamefish. Since kingfish can often weigh 20 pounds or more, chances are the rods and reels needed to catch them have been sitting unused somewhere in your collection. Rod guides should be checked for nicks that could weaken and eventually cut the line. Reels should be respooled and drags greased if needed. Live bait kingfish rigs typically consist of 18 inches of 38-pound coffee colored piano wire for the lead. Connect that to a 2/0 live bait hook and a short piece of wire (approximately 4 inches long) with a size 6 treble hook for a trailer. Make several of these rigs, as they will work great for the majority of baitfish that youll be using to catch the kingfish. These baits include threadfin herring, Spanish sardines, blue runners, cigar minnows and big pilchards. Also be sure to make some larger rigs in case thats all thats available for you that day. These larger rigs can have a couple of trailer hooks in order to cover the bait and help to ensure that the fish will get hooked. A variety of artificial lures will catch kingfish, from shallow diving plugs to silver and gold spoons. Most of them are best trolled behind a planer, which will allow the lure to be trolled deeper. Planers come in four sizes and the number on the planer depicts the depth it will dive. For example, a number 3 planer dives 30 feet when trolled with approximately 100 feet of line out. Note, this is the most common planer to be used around the many artificial reefs as well as the shipping channel, two great areas to target kingfish in the spring.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Academy Award winner Russell Crowe portrays the man chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world. Never before has the full story been brought to life on screen in a vivid epic inviting the audience to experience these spectacular events through the eyes and emotions of Noah and his family, as they journey through fear and faith, destruction and triumph, hardship and hope. SabotageGenre: Action and thriller Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini and Josh Holloway Director: David Ayer Rated: R In Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the worlds deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done until, one by one, the team members mysteriously start to be eliminated. As the body count rises, everyone is a suspect.Bad WordsGenre: Comedy Cast: Jason Bateman, Rohan Chand, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Phillip Baker Hall and Rachael Harris Director: Jason Bateman Rated: R Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. In the movie, he stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious eighthgraders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. Guy zealously plays to win the prize money at stake, outpacing the pre-teen field in match after match. Guy is aided and abetted in qualifying for the matches by reporter Jenny Widgeon, who has the exclusive rights to Guys story and has liaisons with her subject. Guy rudely steps up his game to embarrass and outwit the competitions imperious chief Dr. Bowman (Philip Baker Hall) and administrator Dr. Deagan (Allison Janney), who are intent on having him eliminated from the field. While Jenny attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guys take-no-prisoners approach to life. But the increasingly heated final rounds of the Quill may spell things differently for Guys future.Cesar ChavezGenre: Drama Cast: Michael Pea, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Jacob Vargas, Yancey Arias, Wes Bentley, John Ortoz and John Malkovich Director: Diego Luna Rated: PG-13 In Cesar Chavez, director Diego Luna presents a powerful cinematic portrait of the legendary activist.

Expires 4-30-14 TBN Celebration of sand sculpture returns to Clearwaters beachesSugar Sand Festival Award-winning guitarist Jesse Cook to perform at CapitolCLEARWATER Jesse Cook will bring his Blue Guitar Tour to the Tampa Bay area Sunday, April 6, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets start at $25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Cook, a Canadian Juno Award-winning guitarist, is touring in support of his recent album release, The Blue Guitar Sessions. According to his website, the musician found inspiration for the new recording while listening to Adeles . It was the simplicity of it, Cook says of Adeles work. For me it was amazing that an album, where many of the tracks were just voice and piano, was a pop record. I loved it. It creates a world where we get to really hear her voice and also the pianist can be more expressive. It just becomes a much more intimate album, a much more personal album and I thought I would love to do that. His appreciation of Adeles work emboldened him to tackle a long simmering personal objective and create a blue mood record. He spent the summer of 2011 cottage-hopping with his family and set about writing material for his eighth studio album, The Blue Guitar Sessions.A change in courseAccording to his biography at website of his booking agent, The Feldman Agency, The Blue Guitar Sessions is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. A leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995s Tempest, Cook has received many accolades, including, in 2008, winning the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazines prestigious Players Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia. But Toronto resident who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director, and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer has steered clear of anything resembling flamenco on this record, producing a sound that allows listeners to appreciate each musicians contribution. To do so he also battled his natural instinct to fill in space. Its a big departure from the work I have done in the past, he says in the biographical sketch. And theres a fear that if you do something drastically different, will there still be someone there to listen to it if you change? Cook feels that the role of an artist is to change, to constantly push forward and try and come up with something new. I dont want to spend the rest of my life repeating my first few records, Cook says. So I decided I was going to do it. The result is a captivating 14-track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones microphones for which Cook exhaustively searched so he could authentically replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer and engineer. The Blue Guitar Sessions is best enjoyed through a room-filling home stereo system like the old days. The track Broken Moon features Cooks extraordinary guitar accompanied by cellist Amy Laing. Tom Szczniak adds accordion to Witching Hour, a melodic composition hinting at Cooks Parisian roots. Toronto vocalist Emma-Lee makes an appearance on I Put a Spell on You, a cover of the song written by Screamin Jay Hawkins and popularized by Nina Simone and Jeff Beck. Longtime collaborator violinist Chris Church makes several appearances in just the right spots. Tampa Bay area audiences will soon discover how well The Blue Guitar Sessions translates to live performances. The Capitol Theatre performance will include songs from more familiar work as well as material from the new album. Cooks previous albums include Tempest (1995), Gravity (1996), Vertigo (1998), Free Fall (2000), Nomad (2003), Frontiers (2008) and The Rumba Foundation (2009). Five of these were nominated for Juno Awards and one, Free Fall, won a Juno Award for Best Instrumental Album. Joining Cook on stage are the musicians that have become as familiar to fans as Cook himself: Chris Church, Rosendo Chendy Leon, Nicholas Hernandez and Dennis Mohammed. What I found is that the longer the five of us played together, we really gelled and had a sense of what our domains were, Cook said in a press release from his publicist. Each member grew within their domain to make it something really big. We all learned to fill our space. The Blue Guitar Sessions, Jesse Cooks new album, replicates the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era.Photos courtesy of JESSE COOKAward-winning Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook brings his Blue Guitar Tour to Pinellas with a performance at Capitol Theatre April 6.CLEARWATER The city of Clearwater will present its famed Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival, running April 4-13, on the beach just south of Pier 60.

Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Celebrating more than 30 years in the business, Night Ranger continues their non-stop touring schedule and will make a stop at the Capitol Theatre in the Cleveland Street District. Special guest Robin Zander, lead singer of Cheap Trick, will open the show. It all started when five hard-rockin kids from the San Francisco Bay area joined forces in the early 1980s to form Night Ranger. Like no other rock band, Night Ranger epitomized and transcended the sound and style of that decade. In 1983, the band earned widespread acclaim with their multi-platinum album Midnight Madness, which included their smash hit songs Sister Christian, When You Close Your Eyes and the anthemic (You Can Still) Rock In America. Opening the show will be special guest, Robin Zander, the lead singer of Cheap Trick. Singing classics like Surrender, I Want You To Want Me and The Dream Police, Zander has sold millions of albums and played large-scale venues the world over with the famous rock maestros Cheap Trick. He now looks forward to performing some Cheap Trick hits and deep cuts along with songs from his solo album as well as classic rock staples from the bands collective history. TOP FIVE, from page 1Bviolence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individuals ability to change the world.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Breathe InGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan, Mackenzie Davis and Nico Tortorella Director: Drake Doremus Not rated Breathe In pairs writer/director Drake Doremus once again with his incandescent star, Felicity Jones. Soulful and musical British exchange student Sophie Williams (Jones) comes to New York in search of inspiration. On the surface, Sophies host family seems happy enough, but with her arrival to the Reynolds Upstate New York home, the private struggles of each family member begin to bubble. In particular, frustrated musician-turnedpiano-teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) finds long suppressed dreams and desires reignited by Sophies talent and inquisitive nature. While Keiths wife, Megan (Amy Ryan) and daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis) focus on Laurens final year of high school, Sophie and Keith are drawn ever closer by their mutual longing for creative expression. Ultimately, Sophie and Keith must confront how much they are willing to sacrifice and what they truly want out of life.Hide Your Smiling FacesGenre: Drama Cast: Ryan Jones, Nathan Varnson, Colm OLeary, Thomas Cruz, Christina Starbuck and Chris Kies Director: Daniel Patrick Carbone Not rated After a neighborhood tragedy, two young brothers 9-year-old Tommy (Ryan Jones) and 14year-old Eric (Nathan Varnson) confront changing relationships, the mystery of nature, and their own mortality. A dreamlike portrait of adolescence unfolding over one hot, hazy summer, Hide Your Smiling Faces is a startling debut, exploring rural American life through the distorted lens of youth.The Raid 2Genre: Action Cast: Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, Julie Estelle, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamura Director: Gareth Evans Rated: R He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldnt have been more wrong. Formidable though they may have been, Ramas opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender Yuda. In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco the son of a prominent gang kingpin to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweek ly.com.

The multi-platinum recording artist boasts album sales approaching $2 million, two consecutive album debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard country albums chart and a combined 2.4 million followers on Facebook and Twitter all in less than two years. There is no doubt that McCreery has emerged as one of countrys hottest new stars. His deep voice and an irresistible sound create the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional country. With more than 200 live shows under his belt across the United States, Canada and the Philippines, McCreery has become a crowd favorite appealing to all ages. His fan base is one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic in the country music world. His first headlining tour has been very successful, with numerous sell-outs and additional shows added to meet the demand. McCreery walked away the victor of the 10th season of American Idol, and he wasted no time recording and releasing his debut album, Clear as Day. The album was the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. Adding to the achievement, McCreery became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Clear as Day went on to be certified platinum for sales of one million in just 13 weeks. The first two singles from the album were each certified gold. McCreerys follow-up to Clear as Day, the 2012 Christmas album Christmas with Scotty McCreery, also was certified gold. McCreery was named Top New Artist by Billboard and won Best New Artist Awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the American Country Awards and the CMT Awards. He was named Breakthrough Artist at the 2013 American Country Awards. His latest album release, See You Tonight, released last fall, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard country albums chart. He co-wrote the first single See You Tonight as well as four others on the album. See You Tonight was McCreerys first Top 10 hit. McCreery is currently on his first headlining tour, which runs through the end of the summer and will cross the country making stops in more than 50 U.S. markets including famed venues like Billy Bobs Texas in Fort Worth, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. and House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Start off April with a trip back in time with 80s Unplugged Friday, April 4, 8 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets start at $24.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. The show will feature performances by Frank Hannon of Tesla, Mike Trap of White Lion and Ron Keel from Keel. Hannon is best known as the guitarist, songwriter and a cofounder of the multi-platinum band Tesla. When he is not touring with Tesla, he occasionally showcases his blazing guitar work and song writing abilities as a solo acoustic performer. Tramp earned place in rock history as the lead singer of the band White Lion. White Lion released their debut album Fight to Survive in 1985. The band achieved success with their No. 8 hit Wait and No. 3 hit When the Children Cry from their second triple platinum selling album Pride. The band continued their success with their third album, Big Game which achieved gold status and their fourth album Mane Attraction. Keel fronted the band Keel beginning in 1984. Their debut album, Lay Down the Law, was released that same year and attracted the attention of KISS member Gene Simmons. Simmons went on to produce Keels second album, The Right To Rock, released in 1985. Keel recently released the solo album Metal Cowboy as well as his autobiography Even Keel: Life On The Streets Of Rock & Roll. He is host of the Streets Of Rock & Roll radio show and TV show. The Safety Harbor Singer Songwriter Festival will run April 4-6. A three-day pass costs $50. Visit safetyharborsingersong writerfestival.com.

TORRESLARGO Computer equipment valued at $59,805 was delivered to a home in Canada Feb. 19 before Tech Data, an international IT distributor based in Largo, realized their customer had been a victim of a Russian cybercrime. The company has Largo police detectives to thank for helping to recover more than $20,000 of the equipment before it was shipped overseas, likely to Russia or possibly Ukraine, said Tech Data fraud manager Scott Heim. The scam started with a Zeus virus or a similar variant that infected one of their customers computers, Heim said. The virus, specifically a keylogger Trojan, was designed to track keystrokes and relay the user names and passwords, even online banking credentials, back to the cybercriminals, who then were able to log on to Tech Data Canadas website as the victim and place an order using their account. Heim said its a problem the company has been dealing with in the United States and Canada for about two years. All the major tech distributors are dealing with the same activity, he explained. In fact, any company that provides electronic commerce access for its customers has to defend against these types of attacks, he said. Rarely, however, is such an attack on Tech Datas websites successful. We catch almost all of them. Its less than 1 percent that actually get fulfilled, Heim said. Slips though, occasionally will occur, and its nice to know that we have partners with law enforcement that can jump on this for us. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The masters and students of a fairly new and American-made martial art form gathered in Largo for an international seminar and contest March 21-22. Choi Kwang Do is a unique martial arts system, explained its founder Grand Master Kwang Jo Choi, who was in attendance. Its based on modern scientific principals, not only for practical self-defense, which everybody can learn, but also, the more important, (to) promote our health. The event celebrated the 27th anniversary of the martial art and honored the birthday of its founder. Choi, 72, still teaches seminars around the world, demonstrating the agility and power his system of training has allowed him to maintain. During this years seminar, he taught a class to senior citizens from the Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay, some in their 90s, and a class to a gymnasium full of black-belt students of all ages. This year, the international seminar was held in Largo to help promote the Florida movement, which has only two County revisits Starkey Road projectChicken therapyResidents tout the benefits of backyard chicken coops By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Karen Maloney always wanted to raise chickens. Her flock of 12 hens have free range over half of her backyard, live in a homemade coop and enjoy a diet of organic grain, mostly organic vegetables and whatever other food is taking up space in Maloneys refrigerator. Owning chickens was an item on her bucket list, she explained. I knew I was going to like this. Its been like 100 times more fun than I thought, she said. These girls are lucky. Theyve got it made. Maloney works in a high-stress job, as a psychiatric nurse at Bay Pines VA Medical Center. Often, she comes home, pulls up a chair in her backyard and just watches the flock meander about, interact with each other and bury themselves in the dirt to clean their feathers in whats called a dust bath. Sometimes her friends ask to join her for chicken therapy, she said. Theyre fascinating. There is something relaxing about them, Maloney explained. Theyre like your blood pressure medication and your antidepressant all wrapped in one. Maloneys flock has grown since she first began raising chickens, starting with six chicks four years ago. Four of the six grew up to be roosters and had to be given away to avoid noise complaints from her neighbors. One has since died. Only a hen named Wilma is from the original flock. Most of her flock she bought as chicks, some from a local seller, some ordered and sent through the mail. Maloney started her flock all wrong, buying the chicks before she had a coop and in the heat of summer, she said. It took three to four months for Maloney and her friend the chicks godfather, she explained to finish the coop, while the chicks grew bigger and began making a mess of the garage. We had a lot of mishaps, but we had a lot of fun too, she said. Maloney has hatched chicks as well, including Olive, named for her breed. Olive eggers are more unusual chickens and lay, predictably, olive-colored eggs. After hatching, Olive imprinted on Maloney and even now will follow her around the yard. In the morning when I leave for work, shell run after me, Dont leave me! she said, adding in a lowered voice, so as not to rouse jealousy in her flock. Shes my favorite too. Maloney has several types of breeds: Rhode Island reds, New Hampshire reds, a Dutch Welsummer named Kip and a white leghorn named Pearl, the smallest of her flock, who lays the most consistent and biggest eggs. Shes all business, she said. Most stereotypes about chickens prove to be true, she said. Theyre easily spooked, they come home to roost at dusk without fail they cant see in the dark and they have a pecking order. New additions to the flock get picked on, By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Improvements for the Park Street/Starkey Road corridor have been a part of Pinellas Countys Comprehensive Plan since 1989. Until recently, the project consisted of building a sixlane divided roadway from Tyrone Boulevard to East Bay Drive. But now county staff is proposing new parameters they say will better meet current needs. Al Bartolotta, section manager with the countys Planning Department and Metropolitan Planning Organization, updated commissioners during the March 18 regular meeting on recommendations from a consultant team asked to re-evaluate the project. He showed a chart of 2010 traffic projections made in 1989 and real numbers from 2012. The most drastic change, down by 91 percent, was the estimate for the Tyrone Boulevard to Park Boulevard segment. In 1989, experts projected the annual average daily traffic on that segment would increase to 46,900. Actual numbers in the Pinellas County 2012 LOS (level of service) Report showed an AADT of 24,500. Those same experts projected an AADT of 39,800 for the Park Boulevard to Bryan Dairy Road segment. Numbers reported in 2012, showed a 45 percent decrease to 27,400. Thats a big difference in numbers, Bartolotta said. The downward trend in traffic coincides with the decline in the countys population from 2000 to 2010. Meanwhile came the economic downturn and there was no money to implement the project and it stalled. So staff took the opportunity to revisit the project with help from the design consultant. Bartolotta used a map to show significant areas near the corridor where people live in poverty. Those people are not driving, he said. Theyre utilizing the bus, biking and walking. An analysis of the corridor revealed areas with no sidewalks, some with no contiguous sidewalks and bus stops that consist of just signs sitting on swells, he said. He pointed out that there were other modes of travel besides cars and safety had to be a primary concern. See STARKEY, page 4A See CHICKENS, page 4A See CYBERCRIME, page 4APhoto by JULIANA A.

That meant the seminar was smaller than the 2,000 to 3,000 people it usually attracts and included less demonstration teams. But they did a great job, Choi said. Personally, I love to come to Florida. The event, held at Christ the King Lutheran Church, was open to the public and hosted by the Choi Kwang Do school that practices there, headed by Robert Master D Defayette. It was a great success for us. I had several people already call, inquiring about the classes, Defayette said. Everyones pumped and excited about it. So that energy will help grow our school. Defayettes school, called CKD Master D, meets in several locations, teaching adults, children, seniors and even stroke victims. During the weekends contest, his team of seven black-belt students ranged in age from 8 to 57, showing off what students who are still growing the art can do, though they didnt make it into the finals, Defayette said. The accessibility of Choi Kwang Do is integral to its purpose. Choi was an adept taekwondo teacher in Southeast Asia before he had to stop due to a knee injury and back pain, he said. He came to the United States for treatment and in 1978 began to develop a new martial arts technique that would aid his recuperation and promote health, rather than show off toughness, he said. It took him nine years to develop the technique, consulting with experts in human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology and neurophysiology, Choi explained. Twenty-seven years later, Choi Kwang Do, with international headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., is taught in 40 different countries and regularly attracts converts who have trained in other martial art forms. We are growing very rapidly, actually, because of our concept, Choi said. The organization will expand with more schools in Florida in the next couple of years.

4A Largo Leader, March 27, 2014In this case, the order requesting 50 different items was placed Feb. 17 and shipped to a home in Laval, Quebec, later that day. When Tech Data identified the order as fraudulent, the company contacted UPS to try to stop the delivery, but the equipment had already arrived about an hour beforehand, at 8:04 a.m. Feb. 19. The company contacted the Largo Police Department to help intercept the stolen merchandise. Canadian authorities usually are reluctant to take up a case based on a private referral, Heim said. So Largos Detective Lara Young coordinated with police officials in Canada to obtain a search warrant at the address of the delivery. Canadian authorities arrested two people and were able to recover some of the stolen computer equipment, according to Largo police. Police Lt. Stephen Slaughter said he was proud of the investigative services division for their quick action. They jumped on the case within hours or the rest of the shipped equipment would have been gone, he said. More than $30,000 worth of equipment was not recovered from the Quebec home. Its our belief that its already gone to Russia, and theres not been great cooperation with the Russian authorities, Slaughter said. Heim said that in his experience tracing similar attacks through email communications and IP addresses, they almost always tie back to locations in Russia, typically in the St. Petersburg area. The two who were arrested arent cooperating, meaning that the equipment still unaccounted for likely wont be recovered, Heim said, though Canadian authorities continue to investigate. We want businesses to be aware and maintain their virus protection software. This is what can happen, Slaughter said. Offenders know that time is on their side. The two who were arrested are most likely unwitting participants in the scheme, charged with receiving the equipment and reshipping it overseas in a work-at-home set-up, Heim said. Its likely they wont know much of those behind the fraud anyway, Slaughter said. They wouldnt want somebody to have that much intimate knowledge, he explained. Heim said Tech Data has a system in place to track its customers order trends. An atypical order that is sent via expedited shipping to a residential address, as opposed to a business, will be flagged for manual review. If its found to be fraud, it will be canceled. Tech Data will follow up with its customer in this particular case, a Canadian IT reseller to let them know theyve been infected with a virus and walk them through what needs to be done to fix it. We would warn them too, its not just going to be Tech Data, but their other supplier accounts, Heim said. Cybercriminals usually order equipment like laptop computers, processors and hard drives. Since whatever they obtain is almost 100 percent profit, they can sell the equipment for prices dramatically less than their real worth. Theyre obviously selling on black market, Heim said. Still he said he was pleased with the collaboration with Largo police to jump all over this and recover some of the stolen merchandise. Most of Tech Datas corporate campus is within Largo city limits, at 5350 Tech Data Drive, near the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. The company is in the process of building a new 46,800square-foot office building on the campus. Six lanes dont mix well with safety, he said. Ken Jacobs, manager with the countys Traffic Division, said the corridor study involved creating balance to solve congestion and capacity problems. Staff now believes capacity enhancements can be made without making the entire corridor six lanes. He pointed out that transitions between six lanes and four lanes and around intersections would be critical. Its a balancing act the need for capacity and the need for pedestrians and bicyclists, he said. Staff is focused on making sure investments already made for the project are being used. These investments include prior design plans, permits and rights of way already purchased. Consultant Chris Lovett with Engineering Services URS Corporation in Tampa explained proposed plans for the different segments. The design maintains a minimum 19.5 median width for separation of the two-way traffic and provides left-turn lanes. The minimum lane width is 11 feet. The existing stormwater conveyance system will be used. Bus pads and connecting sidewalks will be incorporated. A continuous sidewalk along each side of the corridor away from the curb where right of way permits also is included, as are continuous bike lanes along each side of the road. Five intersections are targeted for capacity improvements, including Park Street at Tyrone Boulevard, Park Street at Park Boulevard, Starkey Road at Bryan Dairy Road, Starkey Road at Ulmerton Road and Starkey Road at East Bay Drive. The intersections are currently failing or will fail in the future, staff said. The goal is to improve the capacity at the intersection but not overbuild the links between. Transitions from the intersections to the narrow links are critical. The 7.5-mile project is divided into six segments with Segment 1 divided into three with sub-segments. County and MPO staff have been working with the cities of Seminole and Largo to address concerns. The section of Park Street from Tyrone Boulevard to north of 86th Avenue North, primarily on the west side, is adjacent to land within the city of Seminole. The section of Starkey Road from south of Ulmerton Road to East Bay Drive goes through the city of Largo. The remainder is located in unincorporated Pinellas.The segments Segment 1A runs from Tyrone Boulevard to 54th Avenue North. Current plans call for a fourlane urban roadway. The project completes the connection to 46th Avenue and addresses pedestrian safety concerns in the area. Design cost is $215,000 and construction $4.9 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2017-18. Segment 1B from 54th Avenue North to the Cross Bayou Canal Bridge is a four-lane project with a transition from 62nd Avenue to the six-lane bridge. It includes improvements for pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design cost is estimated at $215,000 and construction $5.3 million. It currently is not funded. 1C will be a six-lane road running from the south side of the bridge to 84th Lane North. Plans include widening of the functionally obsolete existing bridge to bring it up to standards and provide bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Design costs are budgeted at $220,000 and construction $4.6 million. It is funded and scheduled for construction in fiscal year 2015-16. Segments 2, 3 and 4 also will be a 6-lane road. Segment 2 runs from 84th Lane North to 82nd Avenue North and Segment 3 from 82nd Avenue North to 106th Avenue North. Segment 4 goes from 106th Avenue North to north of Bryan Dairy Road. Segment 2 includes an extended intersection improvement project to improve flow at Park Boulevard. Design cost is budgeted at $134,000 and construction $5.2 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2016-17. Segment 3 addresses continuity, pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design cost is estimated at $236,000 and construction $9.5 million. The project is not currently budgeted. Segment 4 provides improved traffic flow and connection to the Bryan Dairy Road project, Starkey Road to 72nd Street. Design cost was $63,000 and construction $4.2 million. The project is currently under construction. Segment 5, which runs from north of Bryan Dairy Road to 130th Avenue North, will be a 4-lane road with design features to address pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design costs are estimated at $220,000 and construction $6.2 million. Segment 5 is not currently funded. Plans for segment 6 call for a 5-lane road, three going northbound and two southbound. The project addresses traffic flow especially between Ulmerton Road and East Bay Drive and pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design is estimated to cost $550,000 and construction $8.8 million. The project is not currently funded. Lovett estimated cost for the unfunded segments at about $30 million. He said segments had been funded putting those with prior investments design costs and purchases of permits or right of way at the top of the list. The next consideration was need. This will give the biggest bang for the taxpayers money, Lovett said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said he did not know if additional money for the project would be available until it gets closer to the end of collection of the current Penny for Pinellas. The road project Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTYPinellas County is rethinking plans for improving the 7.5-mile Park Street/Starkey Road corridor.first appeared on the Penny for Pinellas funding list in 1989. Commission Chair Karen Seel pointed out that costs for the three funded segments were less than budgeted. We might have some funding for another segment, she said. STARKEY, from page 1A CYBERCRIME, from page 1A mostly by a brown chicken named Poppy. Shes large and in charge, Maloney said. The chickens stay within their fenced area and make less noise than many dogs, she said. Shes never had any complaints from her neighbors. In fact, one of her neighbors on Ridge Road, Largo Commissioner Woody Brown, said he never smells and rarely hears Maloneys flock. After much research with his wife Jenny, the family decided to begin a flock of three chickens last year, Brown said. They provide for fresh eggs, and a cool learning experience for the boys, the commissioner wrote in an email. We really enjoy it, and we know what the chickens that give us eggs are eating. The city of Largo has allowed backyard chicken coops for some time, though the city ordinance on the issue is a bit vague. Specifically, the city prohibits chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and guinea fowl from running at large within the city and requires that the birds are securely fenced and confined within the owners property. Coops are to be kept clean and free from offensive odors, the ordinance states. The city also has a noise ordinance, which does not look kindly upon roosters, who crow all day, not just to announce the morning, Maloney explained. But roosters arent expressly banned and the ordinance does limit the size of residents flock. Maloney said 12 is plenty for her. I think there are many more backyard chicken coops in Largo than most realize, Brown said. Recently, a Largo resident emailed commissioners to ask them to prohibit chickens from the city. The sound of roosters should not be in the landscape of a very dense, congested city, wrote Bruce Dennis. To violate the noise ordinance, a code enforcement officer must be present with a noise meter to make the determination, building official Bill Ondulich wrote in response. Roosters do crow regularly at Martins Farm, a residential property in Largo run by Sandi Martin LaRoche and her husband, Dawn. In fact, the farm serves as a rescue facility for chickens and various other farm animals. The local SPCA, Animal Control, Humane Society and even city of Largo code enforcement officials bring stray fowl to her farm, LaRoche said. She finds homes for the unwanted farm animals and purchases and sells chicks as a regular part of her business. We get 100 (chick) babies brought in every month, and they go like little hotcakes, LaRoche said. People come every weekend. She said she couldnt guess how many residents in Largo and Pinellas County own chickens, but its a growing trend. There sure are a lot more since we started selling, she said. People are a lot more self-sufficient. They want to grow their own eggs. Outside of Largo, chickens are allowed in the cities of Belleair, Dunedin, Gulfport and St. Petersburg, as well as in unincorporated Pinellas County, according to an online tally by Pinellas County Citizens for Backyard Poultry. Martins Farm started taking in rescued chickens about 15 years ago. Then people started asking for chicks, wanting to buy only two or three, not 25 at a time as they usually sold. LaRoche realized she could be choosy in what chickens she kept for herself and sell the rest. She now can offer up to 50 different breeds that lay eggs from chocolate brown to green, all purebred. Along with baby chicks, the LaRoches keep and sell geese, pheasant, quail and peacocks. I only buy (chickens) for pets and eggs. No meat birds, she clarified, adding that shes had requests for butchered chickens. I just cant. We tell people, If you name it, you dont eat it. Martins Farm also furnishes schools with fertilized eggs to hatch in the classroom, taking the chicks back after the lesson is over so they can find permanent homes for them. She provides about 40 to 50 dozen eggs a year to different schools in Pinellas County and Tampa throughout the school year. Theres nothing more precious than watching a baby hatch. And kids dont get to see that anymore, LaRoche said. Like the school-hatched chicks, Maloneys chickens that proved to be roosters ended up back at Martins Farm. LaRoche said she pays to determine the sex of the chicks she sells, so her customers are guaranteed hens. After all, its the hens that lay eggs; the roosters only become a noise violation. Business picks up in the spring, especially around Easter, up until school lets out, LaRoche said. Martins Farm, at 990 Donegan Road, is open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 585-1110.Photos by JULIANA A.

During a news conference, the sheriff explained the revised policy is first and foremost intended to mitigate the risk for officer safety, as well as public safety. Furthermore, the policy is intended to provide deputies bookends to do their work, allow them to use their judgment and exercise good discretion, Gualtieri said. The main revisions to the policy include the following: A sworn member may engage in a vehicle pursuit only when: It is necessary to apprehend a person because he or she committed a crime and, by their criminal conduct, the suspect constitutes an imminent and/or continuous threat to the safety of any person if not apprehended. Per the policy, the crime or criminal conduct constitutes a forcible felony, except unarmed burglary or burglary where the sole underlying crime is a property crime; arson that resulted only in property damage; aggravated assault, unless the aggravated assault involved the use of a firearm or other weapon. Or, it is necessary to apprehend a driver of a vehicle because he or she by their extremely dangerous driving poses an imminent threat of great bodily harm to any person if not immediately stopped and apprehended. In the previous policy, what met the threshold of a pursuit included: A sworn member could engage in a vehicle pursuit only when: There is reasonable suspicion the violator posed an imminent threat and or continuous threat. The threat had to be attributed to either suspected criminal conduct or ongoing aggressive and/or reckless driving. The revision of the pursuit policy began about a year ago and took into consideration input from members across the agency to develop a solid and workable policy. Gualtieri initiated the plans to revise the policy and set a new tone as it relates to pursuits when the time frame between 2011 and 2012 showed an increase in pursuits and reflected some instance of non-compliance with the pursuit policy at the time. Since the changes began to be instituted, the sheriff cited a 54 percent drop in pursuits between 2012 and 2013; and considerable modification to the behavior for engagement in a pursuit. The new policy became effective March 17.

Police beat Police beatMan arrested after standoff with policeKENNETH CITY Kenneth City police, aided by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, successfully talked a suspect into giving himself up after he barricaded himself into his home after threatening his roommates with a shotgun. According to a report from Kenneth City police, the roommates, Brian Hughes, 34, and Zane Earnst, 42, came to the station about 11:30 p.m. March 22 and told police that their roommate Justin Peters, 31, was intoxicated and verbally arguing with them. They said Peters had pointed a shotgun at them, threatening their lives. Kenneth City Police Department and the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office responded to the scene. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Swat and Negotiating Team responded as well. Communication with the suspect went on throughout the early morning hours. Eventually communications with Peters stopped. At approximately 11:30 a.m. March 23 the SWAT team made entry into the residence on 56th Way North and apprehended him without incident. Peters was booked into to the Pinellas County Jail on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of felon in possession of a firearm. Bond was set at $20,000.Detectives seek credit card thiefSEMINOLE Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit ask the publics assistance in locating a Seminole credit card fraud/identity theft suspect who stole from a female victims purse. According to Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives, on Thursday, Jan. 16, between 5:30 and 6 p.m., the victim completed her grocery shopping and paid her bill at the Publix Supermarket located at 10801 Starkey Road in Seminole. She then went to use the restroom prior to leaving the store. The victim inadvertently left her purse in the grocery cart and, when she returned, her wallet was missing from her purse.

According to the media release, a heavyset white female in her 50s took the shoe about 5:20 p.m. Sunday, March 16. The shoe is valued at $5,500. Four white females possibly from Michigan on spring break came into Hogans Beach Shop at 5:16 p.m. Four minutes later, a large statue of Hogan fell over outside the premises, and store workers were temporarily distracted. Thats when the theft occurred. Employees did not know the shoe was missing until Tuesday evening when they checked store security cameras and saw the theft.Man arrested for attacking seagullCLEARWATER A 21-year-old Illinois man was charged with animal cruelty March 19 after using part of a beach umbrella to hit a seagull. Ryan David Lesle of Western Springs, Ill., was booked at the Pinellas County Jail at 9:37 p.m. on the felony charge of cruelty to animals. He was released on $5,000 bond at 2:46 a.m. Clearwater police said Lesle was annoyed by a flock of seagulls near him and his friends south of Pier 80 near Tower 3, so he used the lower pole part of an umbrella to swing at the birds. After injuring a bird, he used the pole again to try to put the bird out of its misery. Someone from a local veterinarian facility responded and euthanized the bird.Detectives seek Seminole fraud suspectsSEMINOLE Detectives assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Economic Crimes Unit are seeking the publics assistance in locating two credit card fraud/identity theft suspects from Seminole. The first theft occurred Saturday, Feb. 1, between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Aldi grocery store at 24756 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater. The second theft was on Sunday, Feb. 2, between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Aldi grocery store at 7777 Seminole Blvd. in Seminole. According to detectives, the two suspects enter grocery stores and look for opportune times to remove wallets from opened purses left on the upper carrier of grocery carts or being carried by unsuspecting shoppers that are momentarily pre-occupied. The first suspect removes wallets from the shoppers while the second acts as a lookout. The first suspect is described as a black female in her mid-30s, 5-feet, 5-inches to 5-feet, 9-inches tall, approximately 150 pounds with black shoulder length straight hair. She was last seen wearing a light colored sweater with horizontal stripes and a dark colored shirt underneath and yellow slacks. The second suspect is described as a black female in her mid-30s, 5-feet, 2 inches to 5-feet, 5-inches tall, approximately 160 to 180 pounds. She was last seen wearing her hair pulled back in a ponytail with sunglasses on her head, a red and white checkered/plaid short-sleeve shirt, jeans, tennis shoes and a watch on her left wrist. She also walks with a limp. The two suspects have been seen traveling in a newer model silver Chrysler mini-van with the first suspect driving. Anyone with information on these thefts is asked to contact Detective J. Cangemi of the Economic Crimes Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.Florida lawmakers pass tax relief billrvehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. The legislature increased vehicle registration fees to help balance the budget in 2009, when state general revenue collections declined more than 22 percent since their high in 2005-2006, officials said. Now, theyre reversing that action. Gov. Scott praised the Senate for passing the bill. He released a statement March 18 that talked about how critical the bill was to his $500 million Its Your Money campaign. This tax cut will let families keep nearly $400 million of their hard-earned money in their own pockets, Scott said. Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson took a proactive stand to help local residents save money. On March 12, well before the legislature voted on the measure, Nelson removed 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. A conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration shows that Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. However, residents can still renew their registrations for two years if they prefer. 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. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz announced in January details of a five-point Work Plan 2014, which prioritized tax relief. A reduction on annual vehicle registration fees was one of the five. The House and Senate have already passed two others, legislation to protect Floridas children from sexual predators as well as the Florida GI Bill. The GI Bill increases education and employment opportunities for the states veterans, including an increase in funding for Educational Dollars for Duty. It also allows out-of-state veterans to receive in-state tuition rates through the C.W. Bill Young Veteran Tuition Waiver Program. The bill provides $300,000 to Visit Florida to spend to encourage veterans to make Florida their home. It also enhances hiring preferences for veterans and spouses of veterans who died in combat for government jobs and allows private employers to do the same. Four separate bills were passed By SUZETTE PORTERUnanimous votes by Floridas House and Senate leaves the fate of $395 million in tax relief in the hands of Gov. Rick Scott. The bill passed March 18 by the Senate and March 20 by the House reduces certain annual vehicle registration fees, totaling $395 million in savings. Starting Sept. 1, fees to register a motor vehicle will drop to the amount paid prior to 2009. Registration costs will go down by $25.05 for heavy weight Photo by RICH SHEPPARDAna Beatriz of Brazil is followed closely around a turn during last years Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

This was the Third Day of creation hence the name of our company, Third Day Landscaping By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Beaches that were nourished fared better than those that were not when Super Sandy hit New Jersey in 2012. That was just one lesson shared during an American Shore and Beach Association Summit attended by Pinellas Countys Coastal and Freshwater Resources Manager Andy Squires. Squires provided Pinellas County Commissioners with an update on beach nourishment during the March 18 regular meeting. He spent some time talking about what he learned during the Feb. 2527 gathering of the nations coastal managers and scientists in Washington, D.C. One pressing matter is a possible decrease in funding from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for beaches. He said the Corps belt tightening could affect existing projects and work projects. They have a number of things on the plate, he said. Due to budgetary constraints, the Corps is evaluating its priorities, which could be a problem for future projects, such as ongoing beach nourishment. The Corps top priority will be meeting the financial challenge of meeting operations and maintenance needs, Squires said. Consequently, the Corps is reluctant to begin new funding commitments. Squires reminded commissioners of the 50year federal authorization for Treasure Island that ends in 2019. Authorization for Long Key expires in 2030 and 2043 in Sand Key. Continued federal funding may decline in the near term and end upon authorization expiration dates, Squires said in a memo to David Scott, executive director of the Department of Environment and Infrastructure. The Corps plans to transition into a watershedbased budgeting process, Squires said. Officials at the Corps headquarters advised Squires and other proponents of beach nourishment attending the February meeting to bundle projects to maximize benefits. Squires gave the example of bundling beach nourishment with dredging to use the same contractor for multiple projects. Pinellas County already bundles projects. Materials from dredging channels and inlets for navigation and flushing improvements go to nourish Gulf beaches. My overall impression is they are not optimistic or pessimistic, but neutral, he said. The Corps requested more interaction with outside agencies and requested frequent meetings with American Shore & Beach Association, which Squires said it would do. Another pressing matter is passage of the Water Resource Development Act by Congress, which Squires discussed with a staff member from Florida Sen. Bill Nelsons office. He also talked to the countys new federal lobbyist. Im a little bit depressed about federal funding opportunities. We need to be prepared to lose funding levels, Squires said. In Squires memo to Scott, he talked about the many years the county had benefitted from reliable federal support for nourishing the three developed barrier islands Sand Key, Treasure Island and Long Key. Over the last 40 years, $100 million has been put to good use nourishing the countys three beaches, he said. This was largely due to congressional earmarks, thanks to the late Congressman Bill Young, Squires said. Now, there are no more earmarks and no more help coming from Young. With competition for federal funding becoming more challenging, it is time to look toward state and local dollars to pay for new sand on area beaches. He said the state had budgeted less than half of an estimated $90 million needed to keep Floridas beaches nourished. Squires said it costs about $10 million a year to keep local beaches nourished with about half the money coming from federal funding in the past. We need to talk to state representatives and start looking to the bed tax for a larger portion, he said.Hard times ahead? County focuses on beach nourishment funding Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERCoastal & Freshwater Resources Manager Andy Squires updates to Pinellas County Commissioners March 18 about possible funding cuts for beach nourishment. BriefsProperty taxes due Monday, March 31CLEARWATER Tax Collector Diane Nelson reminds Pinellas County property owners of the upcoming March 31 payment deadlines for 2013 property taxes.

The website is the latest offering by the county to provide citizens an electronically accessed, transparent view of government activities. The Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view detailed financial transactions down to the invoice level, and if applicable, the check number and funding source across both departments. The site offers multiple methods of searching for information under various categories including by vendor, department and spending. The site also provides records of salary expenditures for employees under both entities. Tutorial videos are placed on each tab of the site to help users navigate the different functions associated with each type of search. Users also are able to export data into multiple programs. Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke requested the in-house project be developed to offer citizens an easy-to-use, convenient way to view government spending. I am very pleased that all Pinellas County citizens will now be able to open the books, so to speak, and view government spending on their behalf, Burke said. I wanted to eliminate any barrier to being absolutely transparent. With Spending in the Sunshine, I believe we have accomplished just that a companion piece to the states sunshine laws regarding open record keeping. The project was led by Clerk of the Circuit Court Internet technology staff and developed by staff in Pinellas Countys Business Technology Services division, leveraging the countys recent investment in the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise business planning and financial application.

Two were baseball games, the USF Bulls and the Tampa Bay Rays, and the other two were my girls softball games. As I was thinking about the games, I was reminded about how good it is for kids to be involved in sports. My two daughters have been playing sports since they were 4 and 5 years old. The first sport they wanted to play was tennis. I think they started out with tennis because their cousins played tennis. The next sport was soccer, then T-ball, baseball and this year, theyre playing softball. Being in sports has helped my girls in so many ways. They learn how to win and to lose. They learn how to play as a team and as an individual. They learn how to work for a goal. They also learn camaraderie and sportsmanship. Another benefit is they are exercising. Since my kids are young, only 8 and 9 years old, they are still learning how to play. This is the first year they have played softball. Most of the kids on the team are learning the positions, how to throw, pitch and catch. In just a few weeks, I have already seen an improvement. My husband and I always try to encourage our kids. Sometimes they get upset if they strike out, dont get a hit or make a bad play. While we were at the Rays spring training game, we were able to show the girls that even the professionals strike out and dont get hits every time. They even make errors, but they dont let it get them down and they get right back in the game. My daughter Graci and I attended the USF baseball game to watch one of my sisters sing the national anthem. While we were there, we not only saw the baseball game, but also had the chance to see the girls softball team play for a few minutes. It was a great chance to tell my daughter that if she gets good enough, she could get a scholarship and play softball for college if she wants. By the way, if you havent been to USF for a game, its pretty neat how the baseball and softball fields are right next to each other. The stadiums are beautiful and kids get in free to the games. Its a wonderful experience. Graci even got to be the kid announcer during the fourth inning and go into the press box to announce the Bulls players who were batting that inning. That made her day! I know from my own experience that when I was playing sports and Ashley Brooke Hammond and Scott GeigerHammond-GeigerAshley Brooke Hammond and Scott Geiger are engaged to be married. Ashley is the daughter of Kim Hammond of Seminole and Mike and Jeni Hammond of Sandusky, Ohio; and granddaughter of the late Richard and Arlene Van Curen of Seminole. She is a 2002 graduate of Seminole High School. She received a business degree from the University of South Florida and is a CPA. Geiger is the son of Bill and Penny Geiger of Tampa. He also is a Seminole High School graduate and graduated from Florida State University with a few masters degrees. A wedding date has been set for June 2014. Photo by KADI HENDRICKS TUBBSGraci Tubbs, center, helped announce the lineup during the fourth inning of a USF Bulls baseball game on March 16. She is pictured with USF baseball announcer Alfredo Muente and marketing coordinator Allison Minisce.going to school, I didnt have time to do much else. I played soccer, basketball and softball. I wasnt good enough to go to college on a scholarship, but I still enjoyed playing. I think it was even more important for kids to play sports in middle and high school because those are the years that kids seem to get into trouble if they dont have anything to do. When you are involved in sports, you dont have time to be bored and get into trouble. The other good thing is you have to keep up your grades to play sports. Most kids like playing sports, so they get good grades. I encourage parents to help your kids find a sport they like to do, whether its a team sport or an individual sport. It can make a big difference in your childs life.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

12A Viewpoints Leader, March 27, 2014We reveal who we are in several ways: how we speak, what we eat, our styles of dress, what we laugh at, what makes us angry or happy, and so on. Also, how we drive our cars. Or so says Emanuel W. Ricochet, Ph.D., director of the Final Skidoo Research Institute of Elkins, Ky. He has studied thousands of motorists, trying to link their personalities and backgrounds to the way they operate their motor vehicles under varied situations. For example, Dr. Ricochet says he has learned that red-haired women with dimples tend to flirt with other motorists more frequently than non-dimpled women with dark hair. When asked why this is true, Dr. Ricochet said, It has something to do with genetics as it relates to the Big Bang and the invention of the hydramatic shift by Olds or Ford by one of those guys. One of their wives was red-haired and dimpled, and things just sort of went out of control from that point. Other findings of the FSRI are as follows: Presbyterians aged 50 and over seldom check their rear-view and side mirrors before passing other cars. The FSRI report said, These normally well-mannered folks eventually get tired of straggling along behind the other guy. When this happens they suddenly pull out and give it the gas. Our best guess is that Presbyterians believe in pre-destination, which says when your time is up theres not much you can do about it. So why waste time looking out for other cars? Motorists who text while driving are usually lousy spellers. Researchers learned this by examining the cellphones of drivers who were killed or seriously injured in highway crashes. The low level of the drivers intelligence was indicated not only by their texting while driving, but also by their inability to correctly spell such common words as awesome and Miley Cyrus. Drivers who engage in cosmetic behavior, such as shaving or putting on makeup while underway, tend to have shorter life spans than persons who pay close attention to recommended safety measures. An FSRI report said, Motorists who persist in checking their facial appearance in the rear-view mirror are usually self-centered, narcissistic and frequently dead. Michigan residents who move to Florida tend to believe that Florida has the worst drivers in the nation. Florida motorists feel the same way about Canadian motorists. Fewer than 6 percent of drivers in any state believe that local drivers are competent and trustworthy. An unusually high percentage of male drivers arrested for road-rage behavior were found to possess active prescriptions for Viagra, Cialis and other erectile dysfunction drugs. FSRI physicians said, Although we cannot prove any necessary connection between road rage and sexual frustration, we suspect that one exists. If Sigmund Freud were still alive were sure he would see the link between a flaccid schwantstucher and its angry owner flipping the bird at other drivers. When interviewed, 44 percent of Pinellas County motorists said they did not realize that the left lane is the recommended one for passing another motorist. A typical response was, If Im in the left lane and going too slow, the other guy still has the right-hand lane to pass me, doesnt he? So whats the problem? Another local finding was that long-time Pinellas motorists often become confused while driving on Tyrone Boulevard and the few other hypotenuse streets that are found here. These are the streets that are not part of the standard north-south and east-west grid. The FSRI said, When these drivers suddenly realize they are traveling northwest or southeast, they become disoriented and afraid that they have been somehow transported to Boston or other cities with street plans designed by drunken madmen. According to the FSRI research, politically conservative drivers and liberal drivers are not much different from each other when it comes to safety, road courtesy, and obeying traffic laws. However, some contrasts do exist. Conservatives have better hearing, because they choose to listen to gospel music and Rush Limbaugh broadcasts, which can be performed at a lower volume. Many liberals especially those under age 25 are slightly deaf from playing rock music so loudly that the resulting vibrations loosen dental fillings of motorists in nearby cars. Dr. Ricochet said he looks forward to an upcoming study in which motorists will be asked about their attitudes toward car manufacturers. He said, We want to find motorists reaction to recent news stories in which General Motors and Toyota were revealed as callous, profit-hungry and contemptuous of their customers safety. In the face of these findings, motorists who persist in driving GM and Toyota vehicles are likely to score high on our naive and downright stupid scales. Or perhaps well just call them adventurous risk-takers.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Study: Who we are is how we drive Drivers SeatBob Driver Floridians menaced by inflation Hotel preservationists should heed common senseEditors: Opinions are like noses, we all have one. However, to vehemently espouse preserving the Belleview Biltmore hotel without the facts is divisive and causing our town of Belleair to choose sides. You have lost sight of the fact that the town does not own the hotel. It is a private enterprise and not part of the towns Parks and Recreation Department. Your anger and frustration is misdirected. Rather than chide the commission you should be chiding Kawa, Richard Heisenbottle, R.C. Johnson and D. Hein, all consummate prevaricators. They have been dangling the carrot in front of you and twisting the facts. Some of you have suggested the commissioners insist the present owners sell only to those who will restore the hotel. Can you imagine telling you whom you can market your home to? Have you never heard of private property rights? Some are jumping the gun and drawing conclusions without knowing the facts, i.e. Cheezems cheesy cookie cutter condo clusters. If you would wait, like youre asking us to wait, youd hear Mr. Cheezems plan rather than using your clever alliteration, which is counterproductive. We have waited patiently for five years for Heisenbottle to close the deal. How much longer can we wait? We have heard you, many from out of town, pound on the podium calling the hotel the heart and soul of Belleair. If that be the case, the town should be dead, as the hotel has been shuttered since January 2009. Your untruths and inaccuracies coupled with baseless accusations border on slander. Youre noisy, fact-baiting and are often irrational. Heres a partial list of your preposterous, inaccurate statements: Shovel ready project scheduled to start Jan. of 2013; economic feasibility has been validated by financers who will fund it; there are legitimate groups making offers to buy and restore; give Heisenbottle more time, there are more buyers in the wings; construction of townhomes and condos would almost certainly decrease the property values of existing condos; the hotel is in good condition and can be restored. As late as February Heisenbottle said, I have a solid commitment, were very close to a deal. These investors with the funds are as illusive as Ms. Hein. Ive asked numerous people, including reporters, if theyve ever set eyes on this woman who has a propensity for stirring up the pot with misleading statements. They all deny having met her. Not so for Ms R.C. Johnson, who is a regular at town meetings with her charts and documents. Johnson continues to question the credentials of our town attorney and our city planner. I ask where are her credentials and those of her minions who shout, accuse and disrupt, insisting the hotel can be restored? You are waiting for a miracle that is not coming, grasping at straws, and dreaming of preservation that is too expensive to come true. Commissioner Stephen Fowler, an avowed preservationist, said, Im saying slow down, with the economy recovering, Im firmly convinced that its doable. This from a man who admits to not being a money kind of guy. You have been comparing the Belleview Biltmore Hotel to the Don CeSar and the Vinoy, which is like comparing a funeral to a wedding; the Don being on the beach and the Vinoy being in the heart of a vibrant city on the waterfront. Maybe plans to renovate the hotel were too complicated and grandiose. There was never a Plan B suggested. We now have one being presented by Mike Cheezem, which entails a mixed-use approach. Lets listen to his plan and listen with our heads and not our hearts. It appears that common sense may be prevailing and preserving the hotel may no longer be a viable option. So please step away from the podium, cease and desist writing vitriolic accusatory letters and emails and let capitalism work. Lil Cromer BelleairIn memory of NikkiEditor: Do you know what rat poison looks like? After what happened to me, please find out. On Saturday, Feb. 22, my beautiful, yellow Labrador, Nikki, died from ingesting rat poison. Somehow, rat poison found its way into my backyard. I know this because I found some there after Nikki passed. The piece I found was a bright green color with specks. It didnt look dangerous. It looked like something a child might pick up to play with. I was told that either an animal dragged it into my yard from a neighbors yard or that someone threw it over my fence. I have lived in Belleair for 26 years, and never in a million years, could I imagine that my sweet, loving dog would be poisoned. Please find out what rat poison looks like. You can Google rat poison images. Please find out. It is horrific to watch your dog die from ingesting rat poison. My hope is that this announcement will inform people, so this does not happen again. It would give me solace to know that Nikki did not die in vain. Melinda Moreschi BelleairToo much commercialism on the beachEditor: Dear Treasure Island decision makers and all visitors of the beach: I am writing today about the boats pulling blimps and the planes dragging banners along the beaches. We are inundated with commercialism at every turn, in every corner, and at a constant and furious pace. Why? Please. Why does the city of Treasure Island allow this to happen in a place that residents and tourist alike go to vacate the madness? We want to hear surf, birds, and the voice of a person sitting next to us, not the roar of a small plane slowly dragging a banner that propels us back to the real world and makes us wonder if our auto insurance offers the best rate. We dont want these thoughts. Weve gone to the beach to vacate our lives for a period of time, and residents and tourists alike pay a hefty price to do so. And yet, even here, we are victims to more calls to consumerism. For the love of peace and to uphold the value of what vacation and holiday should still embody, please forbid this activity in the air and water space of Treasure Island. Be trendsetters. Stand up for what is right. Protect the little bit of precious freedom we have from consumerism. If I wanted Miami Id go to Miami. Gina Tracy Treasure IslandKudos for Seminoles recycling programEditor: I recently visited the website of the city of Seminole. In particular, I visited the wonderful posting for the Department of Public Works. I am thrilled to learn that Waste Management will deliver 64-gallon recycle carts to residential customers in March 2014. The enhanced recycling program is scheduled to begin the first week of April 2014. Seminole residential customers will be able to place aluminum and steel cans, cardboard, cartons, all color glass, mixed paper, newspapers, and plastic bottles (with caps removed). Of course, NO plastic bags should be placed into the recycle cart. This is wonderful progress for Seminoles recycling program. Congratulations to the city for making this important program grow. Mary Hampton SeminoleInaction has consequencesEditor: In the March 13 issue or the Seminole Beacon I read Mr. Drivers column on being a stoic. What came to mind were the approximately 400,000 people registered to vote in Pinellas County who did not cast ballots in the election to fill C.W. Youngs congressional seat. Whatever belief a person may have Democracy to stay effective demands participation. Shame on such inaction because inaction in itself is action and has consequences. David Robinson St Petersburg Living today, even by Florida standards, is pricey. The average cost for a loaf of bread is $1.41 as opposed to $1.08 five years ago and 88 cents in 2000. The average per pound cost for bananas now is 62 cents, 50 cents five years ago, and 35 cents back in 1999. A pound of bacon is $4.54, $3.44 five years ago, and just $2.47 15 years ago. The average cost of a gallon of gasoline today is $3.50. In 2007 it was $2.80; $1.36 in 2002; $1.13 in 1992; 65 cents in 1977, and 31 cents in 1962. Im old enough to remember gas prices in the teens and when windshields were washed and oil, air and water was checked. The attendant waved farewell with a fist full of S&H Green Stamps. Today, big oil and other industries boast billions in profits while paychecks remain stagnant as skyrocketing living expenses crush Americans into submission. Even a trip to the happiest place of all ... Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom ... costs $99 plus tax. Thats in addition to a $15 parking fee and the inflated prices for food and soft drinks. Its outrageous to visit parks that are little more than glorified shopping malls for Disney merchandise. Working Americans feel the brunt of the challenges to meet everyday expenditures. Many companies are reducing manpower, hours and sending jobs overseas. Full timers who enjoyed company-paid medical care, sick leave, vacations and other benefits face demotion to part-time status to circumvent federal and state employment laws. One restaurant chain has even announced that it may soon add an employee insurance surcharge to meals. The Consumer Price Index indicates that it costs $3,632 in Tampa Bay to maintain the same standard of living that costs, for example, $6,500 in New York. That means consumer prices here are 23.87 percent lower. Renting an apartment or home is 65.80 percent higher in the Northeast, groceries are 19.57 percent lower in Tampa Bay, while overall purchasing power is 41.77 percent higher than in New York. Compared to other states, its still cheaper to live in Tampa Bay when state income taxes (we dont have them) are factored in, along with transportation costs ($13 to cross the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey), as opposed to less than $2 at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge tollbooth. Florida property taxes that seem excessive to some really are dirt-cheap. My property tax is less than $1,000 annually. The rate on a home I once owned in New Jersey nudges $11,000 ... thats eleven thousand dollars! Some may argue that workers in major U.S. cities earn more money than their counterparts in the Southeast. In Florida, for example, a customer service representative earns roughly $12 an hour while an administrative assistant rakes in a few pennies more. Statistically, Floridians earn 6 percent less than workers in most other states. Now lets take a look at our New York example where a customer service representative earns $43,000 annually. Meanwhile, the minimum wage worker will earn $8.75 an hour this coming December, and a quarter more to $9-an-hour in December 2015. Floridas minimum wage rose by 14 cents last January, or 68 cents higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Thus, there are thousands of Americans holding on for dear life so they dont fall below the poverty line. So how does a low wage worker find money for the mortgage, rent, car payments, groceries, insurance, clothes, and all the other expenses on roughly $400 a week after taxes? They dont, and thats why so many gainfully employed workers depend on government subsidies for food, housing and health care in order to survive. Some municipalities, like Pinellas Parks Angel Fund, helps some low wage earners pay utility bills. Food banks operated by churches and civic groups offer free groceries to the working poor. Some corporate executives actually advise their minimum wage workers on ways to obtain various forms of public assistance, including Medicaid, rather than pay a decent salary. According to a study by the University of California at Berkeley, more than half of Americas minimum wage workers rely on at least one government public assistance program to support their families. Taxpayers are on the hook for $7 billion annually thanks to one major burger chain that offers take it or leave it minimal wages, no benefits, and limited work hours. The fast food industry combined is said to cost taxpayers an estimated $3.8 billion annually in government subsidies for the working poor. The Obama Administration is pushing for a federal minimum wage of $10.10 an hour by 2016. That would help roughly a million Floridians in the hotel, restaurant and service industries who live in a state that has the second-largest number of minimum wage workers, only after Texas. And so it goes for struggling Americans who are living paycheck to paycheck while trying to eke out a living. Meanwhile, the price of gasoline, groceries and insurance continues to escalate while big business reaps in the profits.Thomas Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com.

Seminole High School senior Anthony Zsido, son of Daniel and Michele Zsido, earned the rank of Eagle Scout at his board of review Jan. 13. For his Eagle Scout project, Anthony designed, built and installed six park benches along the Preservation 2000 nature trail just east of the Botanical Gardens in Largo. He coordinated the Scout troop and volunteers to complete the project. Anthony joined the Cub Scouts along with his father, who also is an Eagle Scout, when he was in the first grade. Through the years, they were involved in numerous community projects and campouts and had the honor to attend the 100th anniversary of The Boy Scouts of America in 2010 at the National Scout jamboree, at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Eagle Scouts are required to earn 21 merit badges to complete the requirements necessary to achieve this highest honor in scouting. Anthony exceeded this by earning a total of 39 badges and also held many positions within Troop 431 such as scribe, patrol leader and mentor. While involved in scouting, Anthony also played saxophone in the Seminole Middle and Seminole High School bands. For three of his four years in high school, he played football for the Seminole Warhawks. Anthony plans to continue his education in exercise science and business management at St. Petersburg College and the University of South Florida. Bernard Anthony Kazmierski III son of Mary Nebroski Kazmierski and the late Bernard Anthony Kazmierski Jr., of Seminole, joined Troop 431 at Blessed Sacrament Church as a Cub Scout in first grade. With his fathers guidance, he proceeded through the ranks and participated in all the events and community service available. He became an Eagle Scout at a board of review in Largo Dec. 9. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor and dinner will honor Bernard and two other Scouts Saturday, April 5, at Blessed Sacrament banquet hall in Seminole. Bernards Eagle Scout status is very near and dear to his heart. His father was an Eagle Scout and had encouraged him throughout the years to seek this goal. Unfortunately his father did not get to witness him achieve this level. For his Eagle Scout project, Bernard chose to build an enclosed greenhouse so that the homeless could start seedlings and plants to transfer to their gardens at Pinellas Hope, a subsidiary of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. He drafted the plans, purchased all the necessary supplies and coordinated the Scout troop and volunteers through completion. He chose this project because his family had helped serve meals there for four years, and he wanted to do a project that would help these homeless people live a better life. In addition to his service with the Scouts, Bernards artwork has won awards at the Florida State Fair for six years straight. At Seminole schools, he played the trumpet and tenor sax in the high school band, jazz concerts and was a member of the marching band that was invited to march in the Macys annual Thanksgiving Day parade. He has played basketball, soccer and also participated with his family in 5K races. In Bernards first year of high school, he decided to attend St. Petersburg Collegiate High School for his remaining three years. He has maintained a GPA of 4.3, is a member of National Honor Society and Phi Theta Kappa. He will graduate with a high school diploma as well as an Associates of Arts degree. He would like to major in architecture, at a college yet to be chosen.

First Lady Ann Scott to attend anniversaryBELLEAIR Belleair Womens Republican Club will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding at a birthday bash luncheon April 4. The guest of honor and featured speaker will be Floridas First Lady, Ann Scott. A number of local officials are also expected to attend the event and bring official greetings recognizing the clubs golden anniversary. We are simply thrilled the governors wife has accepted our invitation to attend the anniversary event, said BWRC President Claudia Thomas, in a press release. Her attendance emphasizes the importance of this special day. Fifty years is quite a milestone for our group, one of the oldest, most active and most respected womens Republican clubs in the state. Thomas has already received a number of proclamations recognizing BWRCs anniversary and achievements, including one from the City of Safety Harbor naming April Belleair Womens Republican Club Month. She is hoping Mrs. Scott will bring birthday greetings to the club from her husband. It would be just wonderful to have our governor take note of all the club has done to promote Republican candidates and causes in Pinellas County over the last 50 years, Thomas said. The BWRC Birthday Bash will be held at Belleair Country Club, One Country Club Lane, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to Mrs. Scotts appearance, plans for the event include special decorations, music and other entertainment, a display of club memorabilia and party favors. We are going to have an oldfashioned birthday party, said Thomas. We spend most of the year being serious about issues and elections. For the clubs 50th, we just want to have some light-hearted fun. Registered Republicans are welcome to attend the BWRC Birthday Bash, but must make a reservation and pay ahead of time, as space is limited. The cost is $25 and must be received by April 1.

The investigation started after the FWC received several complaints that shark feeding was taking place off the coast of Palm Beach County during dive charter trips. One complainant told dispatchers she was on a dive trip where sharks were being fed. The person said the sharks had become so aggressive she had to get out of the water. This is a public safety issue, said FWC Maj. Camille Soverel. The FWCs Division of Law Enforcement wants to ensure these beautiful coastal waters remain safe for divers. FWC investigators and the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office, working jointly, conducted two separate investigations involving two northern Palm Beach County dive charter operators. On Feb. 8, deputies from the PBSO dive team took part in a dive trip on board Emerald Charters of Jupiter. During the dive, video was taken of Randall Jordan feeding sharks by hand while within state waters. He also used a milk crate filled with fish chunks to lure sharks to his location. Thomas Smith was operating the vessel during the dive. On Feb. 22, the deputies took another dive trip on board the vessel Miss Jackie, which is owned by Luis Roman of Orlando and operated by Toni Crumrine. The Lake Park-based company Calypso Dive Charters used the boat. During this trip, deputies took videos of Roman feeding a goliath grouper and a lemon shark. Video also shows Roman trying to lure sharks to his location by shaking a milk crate filled with barracuda chunks. Both feeding incidents happened in state waters. FWC investigators and PBSO divers used several GPS devices and other methods to confirm these activities were occurring in state waters, which, in the Atlantic, is within (or up to) 3 nautical miles from the nearest point of Florida coastline. Fish feeding in Florida waters has been illegal since 2002. The FWC presented results from the joint investigations to the Palm Beach County State Attorneys Office, which charged Jordan, Smith, Roman and Crumrine with operating a vessel for hire within state waters to allow passengers to observe fish feeding. Jordan and Roman also were charged with fish feeding. These are second-degree misdemeanors, punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500. Kingfish, mackerel invading local watersKingfish and Spanish mackerel have made their spring arrival to our area. Over the next couple of months they will be reliable targets. With each passing cold front thats quickly followed by warming weather, we should see the numbers of these highly migratory fish increase. Being prepared for the arrival of kingfish will give you the confidence needed to hopefully cash in on this great gamefish. Since kingfish can often weigh 20 pounds or more, chances are the rods and reels needed to catch them have been sitting unused somewhere in your collection. Rod guides should be checked for nicks that could weaken and eventually cut the line. Reels should be respooled and drags greased if needed. Live bait kingfish rigs typically consist of 18 inches of 38-pound coffee colored piano wire for the lead. Connect that to a 2/0 live bait hook and a short piece of wire (approximately 4 inches long) with a size 6 treble hook for a trailer. Make several of these rigs, as they will work great for the majority of baitfish that youll be using to catch the kingfish. These baits include threadfin herring, Spanish sardines, blue runners, cigar minnows and big pilchards. Also be sure to make some larger rigs in case thats all thats available for you that day. These larger rigs can have a couple of trailer hooks in order to cover the bait and help to ensure that the fish will get hooked. A variety of artificial lures will catch kingfish, from shallow diving plugs to silver and gold spoons. Most of them are best trolled behind a planer, which will allow the lure to be trolled deeper. Planers come in four sizes and the number on the planer depicts the depth it will dive. For example, a number 3 planer dives 30 feet when trolled with approximately 100 feet of line out. Note, this is the most common planer to be used around the many artificial reefs as well as the shipping channel, two great areas to target kingfish in the spring.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Academy Award winner Russell Crowe portrays the man chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world. Never before has the full story been brought to life on screen in a vivid epic inviting the audience to experience these spectacular events through the eyes and emotions of Noah and his family, as they journey through fear and faith, destruction and triumph, hardship and hope. SabotageGenre: Action and thriller Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini and Josh Holloway Director: David Ayer Rated: R In Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the worlds deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done until, one by one, the team members mysteriously start to be eliminated. As the body count rises, everyone is a suspect.Bad WordsGenre: Comedy Cast: Jason Bateman, Rohan Chand, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Phillip Baker Hall and Rachael Harris Director: Jason Bateman Rated: R Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. In the movie, he stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious eighthgraders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. Guy zealously plays to win the prize money at stake, outpacing the pre-teen field in match after match. Guy is aided and abetted in qualifying for the matches by reporter Jenny Widgeon, who has the exclusive rights to Guys story and has liaisons with her subject. Guy rudely steps up his game to embarrass and outwit the competitions imperious chief Dr. Bowman (Philip Baker Hall) and administrator Dr. Deagan (Allison Janney), who are intent on having him eliminated from the field. While Jenny attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guys take-no-prisoners approach to life. But the increasingly heated final rounds of the Quill may spell things differently for Guys future.Cesar ChavezGenre: Drama Cast: Michael Pea, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Jacob Vargas, Yancey Arias, Wes Bentley, John Ortoz and John Malkovich Director: Diego Luna Rated: PG-13 In Cesar Chavez, director Diego Luna presents a powerful cinematic portrait of the legendary activist.

Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Cook, a Canadian Juno Award-winning guitarist, is touring in support of his recent album release, The Blue Guitar Sessions. According to his website, the musician found inspiration for the new recording while listening to Adeles . It was the simplicity of it, Cook says of Adeles work. For me it was amazing that an album, where many of the tracks were just voice and piano, was a pop record. I loved it. It creates a world where we get to really hear her voice and also the pianist can be more expressive. It just becomes a much more intimate album, a much more personal album and I thought I would love to do that. His appreciation of Adeles work emboldened him to tackle a long simmering personal objective and create a blue mood record. He spent the summer of 2011 cottage-hopping with his family and set about writing material for his eighth studio album, The Blue Guitar Sessions.A change in courseAccording to his biography at website of his booking agent, The Feldman Agency, The Blue Guitar Sessions is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. A leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995s Tempest, Cook has received many accolades, including, in 2008, winning the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazines prestigious Players Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia. But Toronto resident who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director, and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer has steered clear of anything resembling flamenco on this record, producing a sound that allows listeners to appreciate each musicians contribution. To do so he also battled his natural instinct to fill in space. Its a big departure from the work I have done in the past, he says in the biographical sketch. And theres a fear that if you do something drastically different, will there still be someone there to listen to it if you change? Cook feels that the role of an artist is to change, to constantly push forward and try and come up with something new. I dont want to spend the rest of my life repeating my first few records, Cook says. So I decided I was going to do it. The result is a captivating 14-track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones microphones for which Cook exhaustively searched so he could authentically replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer and engineer. The Blue Guitar Sessions is best enjoyed through a room-filling home stereo system like the old days. The track Broken Moon features Cooks extraordinary guitar accompanied by cellist Amy Laing. Tom Szczniak adds accordion to Witching Hour, a melodic composition hinting at Cooks Parisian roots. Toronto vocalist Emma-Lee makes an appearance on I Put a Spell on You, a cover of the song written by Screamin Jay Hawkins and popularized by Nina Simone and Jeff Beck. Longtime collaborator violinist Chris Church makes several appearances in just the right spots. Tampa Bay area audiences will soon discover how well The Blue Guitar Sessions translates to live performances. The Capitol Theatre performance will include songs from more familiar work as well as material from the new album. Cooks previous albums include Tempest (1995), Gravity (1996), Vertigo (1998), Free Fall (2000), Nomad (2003), Frontiers (2008) and The Rumba Foundation (2009). Five of these were nominated for Juno Awards and one, Free Fall, won a Juno Award for Best Instrumental Album. Joining Cook on stage are the musicians that have become as familiar to fans as Cook himself: Chris Church, Rosendo Chendy Leon, Nicholas Hernandez and Dennis Mohammed. What I found is that the longer the five of us played together, we really gelled and had a sense of what our domains were, Cook said in a press release from his publicist. Each member grew within their domain to make it something really big. We all learned to fill our space. The Blue Guitar Sessions, Jesse Cooks new album, replicates the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era.Photos courtesy of JESSE COOKAward-winning Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook brings his Blue Guitar Tour to Pinellas with a performance at Capitol Theatre April 6.CLEARWATER The city of Clearwater will present its famed Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival, running April 4-13, on the beach just south of Pier 60.

It all started when five hard-rockin kids from the San Francisco Bay area joined forces in the early 1980s to form Night Ranger. Like no other rock band, Night Ranger epitomized and transcended the sound and style of that decade. In 1983, the band earned widespread acclaim with their multi-platinum album Midnight Madness, which included their smash hit songs Sister Christian, When You Close Your Eyes and the anthemic (You Can Still) Rock In America. Opening the show will be special guest, Robin Zander, the lead singer of Cheap Trick.

He now looks forward to performing some Cheap Trick hits and deep cuts along with songs from his solo album as well as classic rock staples from the bands collective history. TOP FIVE, from page 1Bviolence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individuals ability to change the world.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Breathe InGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan, Mackenzie Davis and Nico Tortorella Director: Drake Doremus Not rated Breathe In pairs writer/director Drake Doremus once again with his incandescent star, Felicity Jones. Soulful and musical British exchange student Sophie Williams (Jones) comes to New York in search of inspiration. On the surface, Sophies host family seems happy enough, but with her arrival to the Reynolds Upstate New York home, the private struggles of each family member begin to bubble. In particular, frustrated musician-turnedpiano-teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) finds long suppressed dreams and desires reignited by Sophies talent and inquisitive nature. While Keiths wife, Megan (Amy Ryan) and daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis) focus on Laurens final year of high school, Sophie and Keith are drawn ever closer by their mutual longing for creative expression. Ultimately, Sophie and Keith must confront how much they are willing to sacrifice and what they truly want out of life.Hide Your Smiling FacesGenre: Drama Cast: Ryan Jones, Nathan Varnson, Colm OLeary, Thomas Cruz, Christina Starbuck and Chris Kies Director: Daniel Patrick Carbone Not rated After a neighborhood tragedy, two young brothers 9-year-old Tommy (Ryan Jones) and 14year-old Eric (Nathan Varnson) confront changing relationships, the mystery of nature, and their own mortality. A dreamlike portrait of adolescence unfolding over one hot, hazy summer, Hide Your Smiling Faces is a startling debut, exploring rural American life through the distorted lens of youth.The Raid 2Genre: Action Cast: Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, Julie Estelle, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamura Director: Gareth Evans Rated: R He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldnt have been more wrong. Formidable though they may have been, Ramas opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender Yuda. In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco the son of a prominent gang kingpin to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweek ly.com.

Hannon is best known as the guitarist, songwriter and a cofounder of the multi-platinum band Tesla. When he is not touring with Tesla, he occasionally showcases his blazing guitar work and song writing abilities as a solo acoustic performer. Tramp earned place in rock history as the lead singer of the band White Lion. White Lion released their debut album Fight to Survive in 1985. The band achieved success with their No. 8 hit Wait and No. 3 hit When the Children Cry from their second triple platinum selling album Pride. The band continued their success with their third album, Big Game which achieved gold status and their fourth album Mane Attraction. Keel fronted the band Keel beginning in 1984. Their debut album, Lay Down the Law, was released that same year and attracted the attention of KISS member Gene Simmons. Simmons went on to produce Keels second album, The Right To Rock, released in 1985. Keel recently released the solo album Metal Cowboy as well as his autobiography Even Keel: Life On The Streets Of Rock & Roll. He is host of the Streets Of Rock & Roll radio show and TV show.
