TORRESLARGO The fate of the Missing Links Driving Range is uncertain. As of April 1, the front 2.4 acres of the property has been relabeled a commercial general future land use, a change that representatives of RaceTrac requested in order to build a gas station and convenience store along East Bay Drive. More than 1,500 customers and employees of the facility signed petitions against closing the facility. The miniature golf course, the golf school, pro golfing shop, batting cages and ice cream store made Missing Links too unique to replace with a gas station, protesters argued. This place means more to the city of Largo than any gas station could mean, said Bob Blair, an employee who helped lead the charge against closing it. Missing Links has become a staple of the community. Largo commissioners voted 5-1 to approve the last step in changing the future land use April 1. All but Commissioner Woody Brown agreed that the new land use would mean the property would match the other three corners, which are all designated commercial general. Even with the change, Missing Links could stay the way it is, staff confirmed. Either way, the owner is going to do whatever he chooses, Commissioner Harriet Crozier said. William Hancock owns the property itself and is a co-owner of the Missing Links business with Jim Smith. Smith said he feels caught in the middle, between loyal customers and his business partner. RaceTrac first approached Hancock about leasing the land. Smith said he can appreciate that the driving range is not the most profitable use for the property. Hes decided to make a business decision. I dont begrudge him one bit for doing that, Smith said. Id like to see it stay a golf facility. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESGolfers practice their swing at Missing Links Driving Range, which was rezoned April 1 to allow for a RaceTrac to be built. Residents protested that the facility, which includes a miniature golf course, a golf school, a pro golfing shop, batting cages and an ice cream store, is unique and should not be replaced with a gas station.Largo votes to fight the county on EMS funding Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .14A Health . . . . . . . . . .12-13A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .15A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .11A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .10A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Police arrest three in drug, fraudulent EBT investigation By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO After a yearlong undercover operation investigating illegal drug and EBT card sales at Sunshine Food Mart, Largo Special Operations detectives arrested three associates at the gas station and convenience store at 1595 Seminole Blvd. March 28. The Largo Police Department received multiple tips about the sale of narcotics and trafficking of Electronic Benefit Transfer, or EBT, cards at the business, which also is called SuperAM. The investigation began to address those concerns. Detectives reportedly learned that in order to purchase drugs or sell EBT benefits to the operators of the business, customers needed ST. PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays have announced a new collaboration with Bayfront Health that launched this week with the new Rays Fan for Life program. This season, Bayfront Health and the Rays have chosen to honor each baby born at the Bayfront Baby Place in St. Petersburg on March 31 Rays Opening Day with a certificate granting them four tickets to ALL future Rays home openers. A total of 12 newborns eight boys and four girls each received a gift package delivered by Rays players and team mascot, Raymond on April 1. Later in the season, the children and their parents will be invited to Tropicana Field for an on-field presentation inducting them into the Rays Fan for Life program. We are excited to enter into this agreement with a network as regionally focused as Bayfront Health, said Rays Senior Vice President Mark Fernandez. The Rays Fan for Life program specifically will help future generations and their families feel a part of the Rays community. In addition, each month, individual Bayfront Health employees will be honored during a pre-selected game as part of the new employee recognition program. The employees who participate will receive a private meet-andgreet with a Rays player, a gift package and will be highlighted in-game for their work as an outstanding member of the Bayfront Health community. On April 20 when the Rays take on the New York Yankees, 2,100 members of the Bayfront Health community have been invited to Tropicana Field for Bayfront Health Day.Rays target younger fan base Ibrahim SaraebJolly introduces bill to extend NFIP reform By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas Countys newest Congressman, U.S. Rep. David Jolly, is wasting no time getting down to business. Jolly introduced legislation March 26 that would extend relief from the high cost of flood insurance to businesses and owner-occupied second homes. Congresswoman Kathy Castor and Congressman Gus Bilirakus are co-sponsors of H.R.4313 the Flood Insurance Premium Parity Act, which would ensure fairness in premium rates for coverage for business properties and second homes under the National Flood Insurance Program, and for other purposes. Specifically, the Flood Insurance Premium Parity Act would: Ensure that commercial properties and second homes purchased after the enactment of Biggert-Waters have access to affordable flood insurance by repealing the requirement that they be automatically charged actuarially sound rates. Restore grandfathered rates for commercial properties and second homes. Apply to commercial properties and second homes the same formula for yearly rate increases received by residential properties. Jolly provided an update on his work in Washington, D.C., during a conference call March 27 facilitated by the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. Pinellas County voters in District 13 chose Jolly to finish out the term of former Rep. C.W. Bill Young during a March 11 special election. Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Jolly said his legislation is simple in concept, extending relief measures enacted 10 days ago for single-family residences and applying it to business property and owner-occupied second homes. Jolly described the measure as a baby step toward finding a solution to the problem of keeping the National Flood Insurance Program solvent and providing affordable insurance rates for property owners. He said the extended relief would apply only to second homes, such as those owned by snowbirds. There is one catch. If they lease it out they lose the relief, he said. And theres a limit.

TORRESLARGO The Largo Commission took the first step April 1 toward suing the county to obtain more EMS funding, rejecting its system-wide proposal, referred to as CARES 2. Commissioners minus Mayor Pat Gerard, who was absent directed staff to draft a resolution to initiate the conflict resolution process in accordance with chapter 164, the state law that dictates mediation between governmental entities prior to litigation. The resolution makes Largo the first to make an official move in response to the countys proposed Advance Life Support Contract. Before making the motion, Commissioner Harriet Crozier suggested that the city could wait until the next commission meeting to see what the other large recipients of county EMS funding might do. Do we want to give staff two weeks and wait to hear? Because obviously, theres not going to be any negotiations (with the county). Or do you want to just jump into the pot? she asked her fellow commissioners. Commissioner Jamie Robinson said that representatives from at least three of the municipalities were at the meeting. So, I think what theyre doing is waiting for us, he said, drawing laughter and applause from the audience, made up of mostly firefighters and supporters. If theyre going to wait for us, lets get on it and go.The commissioners had invited Bruce Moeller, the countys executive director of public safety services, to present the countys proposal and answer questions about it. Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis explained the departments response. The funding the county is offering in a five-year contract, which could be renewed for five more years, would result in a loss of $175,000 per year for the next three years, she said. Given the funding would be frozen for those years as well, the loss of inflation revenue would bring the total loss to an estimated $2 million.Over the remaining years of the contract, by the time we reach the end of the 10 years, we will have realized a $9 million shortfall in the city of Largo, Willis said. The county has proposed that two paramedic positions assigned to rescue units at Largos fire stations 41 and 42 stay in service for only 14 hours of a 24hour day. The proposal is designed to save money during the systems least busy time period between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m., Moeller explained. Calls do no occur at the same level throughout the day, he said.

Per a government report late last week, an estimated 6 million Americans had signed up for policies under the law, and more than 440,000 people enrolled in Florida alone. According to organizers, the volunteers also took to the street to point out that ACA enrollment opportunities would continue for anyone who had begun the process online, but had not completed the application and for those in the months ahead who might lose their coverage because they had a child, were divorced or changed jobs and lost coverage.

4A Largo Leader, April 3, 2014Eighth annual Pawfest is this weekendIt would only apply to the second home not a third or fourth, he said. Jolly cautioned that it could take months before the legislation is passed. It could take a while to get it done, he said. Were working on it as hard as we can. He said people needed to continue to reach out to Congress to help them understand what he describes as a pocketbook issue. He said Congress finally passed relief for singlehomes after members understood the hardships flood insurance reform was causing. He said it was the same for business properties. It hits the pocketbooks for job creators and real estate. It affects property values and increases the cost of doing business, which is passed on to the customers, he said. Jolly believes that public pressure will help convince Congress to extend flood insurance relief. He said people should tell their stories so legislators can understand the hardship of unaffordable insurance premiums. Were keeping the pressure up on this, Jolly said. He said officials with the Federal Emergency Management were studying the Homeowner Insurance Affordability Act passed March 4 by the U.S. House and March 13 by the Senate. President Barack Obama signed the bill March 21. The bill aims to reverse massive increases in flood insurance premiums brought about with the implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012. It restores grandfathering. It repeals the requirement for an automatic rate hike when a home is sold or when an insurance policy lapses. It limits annual rate increases to 18 percent. It gives refunds to policyholders who bought pre-FIRM homes after July 6, 2012, and were charged higher premiums. Jolly said FEMA was taking its time to study the legislation to see how it applies. There are still some areas for interpretation, he said perhaps enough to include second homes in the existing bill. He pointed out that Craig Fugate, Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is from Florida and in our corner. He said Fugate was working to find a solution. He just needs Congress to work with him, Jolly said. Jolly recently met with Fugate to discuss legislation for a national catastrophic fund. Im waiting to introduce it until we can get it right, he said. Jolly plans to take his time in drafting the bill and ask for input from a lot of people.Committee appointmentsJolly said he is overwhelmingly pleased with his committee assignments. On March 25, he was appointed to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and House Veterans Affairs Committee. He also was appointed to the Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee and Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee of the full Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. While pleased to continue work for the countys veterans, he explained that getting on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee was so important to Pinellas County due to its influence on highway and roadway funding, as well as water resources and water quality. The subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment is responsible for beach nourishment. Were at ground zero for that (beach nourishment), he said. Jolly said he has been working on beach nourishment since the day he was elected. He talked about the pressing deadline of the contract for Treasure Island. We have to fix that, he said. The 50-year federal authorization for Treasure Island ends in 2019. Authorization for Long Key expires in 2030 and 2043 in Sand Key. In the past, federal funding has paid 60 percent of beach nourishment projects with the remaining 40 percent split between the county and state. Jolly said he has been working with the Chairman of the Transportation Committee on the beach nourishment issue and has made significant progress. He said his appointment to the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation subcommittee would allow him to protect funding for the local Coast Guard and perhaps expand its presence.Local officesJolly announced that he has opened one of three offices he plans to staff in Pinellas County. He is taking over the office used by Young on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, 9210 113th St. He plans to open additional offices in south county and north county in the near future. His goal is to ensure county residents can readily access congressional staff and constituent services. He plans to host an open house at the Seminole district office in the coming weeks. John David J.D. White is Jollys chief of staff. He will head the Seminole district office. White, a Florida native, was most recently the director of government affairs for WellCare Health Plans, one of the largest Medicare Advantage providers in Florida. He has more than 15 years of combined congressional and private sector experience. Nick Catroppo is deputy chief of staff and works out of the Washington, D.C., office. Catroppo most recently served as Jollys campaign manager was formerly a constituent services representative for U.S. Representative Richard Nugent, who represents Floridas District 11.

They were able to garner the trust of the suspects and began buying Spice and other synthetic cannabinoids in the second half of 2013. After establishing trust, the Special Operations unit started to sell traceable EBT cards to the business for 50 cents on the dollar. They obtained the cards with the help from Division of Public Assistance Fraud in the Florida Department of Financial Services. SuperAM management used the benefits to purchase merchandise to stock the shelves of the store. Also, family members and employees of the business used the cards for personal food purchases. The Largo Special Operations unit served a search warrant at the store at 11 a.m. March 28, assisted by Florida Department of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, the state Division of Insurance Fraud and city code enforcement. Police found both narcotics and purchased EBT cards. The business also was cited for numerous civil code violations. They arrested three people, charged with various felonies. Ibrahim Saraeb, 47, of Clearwater was charged with trafficking in counterfeit credit cards and two counts of possession and one count in the sale of a Schedule 1 drug as well as one count of being a principle to sale of a Schedule 1 substance. Amad Almadanali, 47, of Largo is charged with a scheme to defraud, two counts of both the possession of and sale of a Schedule 1 substance. Ali Saraeb-Perez, 25, who, according to Pinellas County Jail records, lives with Saraeb, was charged with a scheme to defraud. The investigation is still ongoing, and additional felony charges are pending, police reported. Amad Almadanali Ali Saraeb-Perez ARRESTS, from page 1A BILL, from page 1A MISSING LINKS, from page 1A Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAt left, Missing Links co-owner Jim Smith stands in facilitys miniature golf course and in the middle of the debate for its existence. Pictured above is the Missing Links entrance and ice cream shop and below is its grass golf practice area. Smith, 64, said hes been golfing his whole life. He was a two-time winner of the Florida State Senior Open and, before that, played in the 1978 U.S. Amateur and the 1986 U.S. Open. He opened the golfing business in 1987 with Hancock, whose family owned the land, Smith said. The timing was right. They modeled the family fun center after Storms Driving Range in Clearwater, which similarly offered many more attractions than the golfing range. We knew it would work. We studied their operation, Smith said. Now theres a Home Depot where that (driving range) used to be on Gulf-to-Bay. The business was self-sustaining, even after the bad economy hurt the golf industry. Missing Links offers a cheaper way to practice ones swing than a round of golf, Smith explained. The deal with RaceTrac has been in the works for at least six months. Even before the city voted, Smith said he couldnt be optimistic about the future of Missing Links. It was a good run. Twenty-seven years, he said. Smith, one of the professionals who offered private lessons at Missing Links, said he had been close to retirement anyway. Still, the potential closure of Missing Links has been real emotional. Its been the love of my life, he said, his eyes watering. Others were less conflicted on the issue. Andre Fecteau, a customer who led the petition drive, said he represented the will of the people and could have obtained thousands more signatures. Why do people come to Largo? Recreation, he said. This is the most universally hated and despised thing to come before the council ever, to change that driving range to a gas station. He urged the commissioners to purchase the land from Hancock and keep the facility as is. Michael Riso, another golf instructor, emphasized the environmental value of the land in its current land use designation as recreation/open space. We could use more green and less black, Riso said. Brown, running the meeting in Mayor Pat Gerards absence, was the sole vote against change. He said he was concerned that piecemeal changes to the future land use map at the request of businesses undermined its purpose. If we do that every time, whats the point of the plan? he asked. Blair said Missing Links was a reason for customers to drive to Largo, rather than just pass through it, stopping only to get gas and a quick Coke. It is a family recreation center, and if you take it away, what are they going to do? There are no other facilities like Missing Links, an all-in-one place, anywhere in this county, Blair said. Little League players used the batting cages during the summer. Those who came to play miniature golf and enjoy ice cream when they were younger now bring their own children. Weve had a lot of generations come and go, Smith said. The land use change doesnt affect the remaining 5.7 acres of the property at 1201 East Bay Drive, farther away from the main road. Smith said he didnt know what Hancock had planned, if anything. The land is crisscrossed with utility easements, particularly power lines, limiting its use. Hancock declined to comment on the future of the property after the commission vote. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The eighth annual Pawfest is shaping up to be one of the best fundraisers the Largo Kiwanis have had, said their president Bruce Blazej. The event is Saturday, April 5, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Largo Central Park, 101 Central Park Drive. Were excited. Were gearing up for everything, he said, explaining that the club will begin setting up in the park after their meeting on Friday. Were looking to have a great event. The free event is designed to be a family day for dogs and humans alike. It acts as the clubs largest fundraiser for the year, allowing the organization to support local students. This year, the local Pet Supermarket partnered with the club, joining Walker Ford and the Palms of Largo as a major sponsor of the event. Were very excited to have them join us, Blazej said. Currently, the Kiwanis Club of Largo/Mid-Pinellas sponsors Bringing Up Grades programs at Ponce de Leon, Ridgecrest and Mildred Helms elementary schools as well as a Key Club at Largo High School. The club is working to start K-Kid and Bringing Up Grades programs at Frontier Elementary School. This years Pawfest will go a long way to raising the needed funds, Blazej said. Were looking equal about what we did in 2012, which was one of our best years, he said, explaining that the club raised $8,000 before expenses. I think were already at that spot. New this year is a car show, adjacent to the Largo Fire Rescue truck display. Also joining the vendor booths is the Treasure Coast Swift Paws, a lurechasing company. We try to come up with something a little different every year, Blazej said. Among the drawings this year, which include four golf packages and donated gift baskets, is a painting by dog artist Brody the border collie, who Blazej met at Mutt Madness in Dunedin, where he auctioned off another piece of artwork. Brodys trainer and owner Lisa Morrissey of Hudson rescued Brody and began to teach him tricks to help him gain confidence. One of his best tricks, she soon discovered, was painting. (Lisa) had Brody paint a picture especially for us and had it framed, Blazej said. It comes with a certificate of paw-thenticity. To learn more about Brody, visit www.face book.com/BrodyTheBorderCollie. Usual favorites this year include K9 Murphy, whom the Kiwanis helped the Largo Police Department purchase, and demonstrations from the Upper Suncoast Dog Training Club, which has been a part of Pawfest since the beginning. The event will include dog rescues with adoptable dogs, bounce houses for children, hula-hoop contests, face painting by Clowns Galore and miniature train rides from the Largo Central Railroad. Also returning is the Veterinarian of the Year Awards. Blazej said he expected good attendance as usual this year, perhaps even more because of the car show, which the club has never done at a Pawfest before. For more information, call the city at 587-6740, ext. 5014.

The units that were selected for peak staffing they come out of service at 10 p.m., or are not in the system whatsoever seem to us to be arbitrary in nature, she said. To illustrate her point, Willis compared the call volume of a rescue unit at station 20, based in South Pasadena, and the one at station 23, based in St. Pete Beach. Using the CARES 2 model numbers, rescue 20 and rescue 23 take 508 and 400 calls, respectively, between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. By comparison, rescue 41 and 42 take 1,260 and 1,119 calls. The point was not to say that units in South Pasadena and St. Pete Beach didnt deserve the funding, Willis said. Im merely pointing out that we run more calls, our workload is much higher, yet were being taken out of service, and it seems arbitrary, she explained. County staff used the CARES 2 model to determine which units it could take out of service, while still maintaining a response time of 7 minutes and 30 seconds or less 90 percent of the time, as required by law. But the numbers used in the model predicted Largo responded to about 4,500 less calls than actually handled in 2013, Willis said. Further, the model does not take calls for fire service, which is the sole responsibility of the cities to fund, into account in its models. Calls for fires represent about 11 percent of the overall volume, however require a significant amount of firefighters over an extended time, Wills said. Weve talked a lot about how EMS and fire funding cant be comingled. But the very nature of this plan takes our rescues out of service and puts our paramedics on the fire apparatus. They are co-mingling the service, she said. Models that show how reduced personnel during night hours might actually play out leave the city with far fewer units should a fire and two medical calls happen within the same time period. Willis and her staff have discussed their concerns in person with county staff. Officially, the city sent a letter to the county March 5, asking for the rescue units at stations 41 and 42 be fully funded at three paramedics each for 24 hours. Additionally, Largo asked for the county to fund one paramedic each for squads 38 and 39, positions that have been eligible for county funds based on a 2011 resolution, but never funded. Finally, Largo also asked that the call volume handled by engine 40, which is responding to increased calls at the Safe Harbor Shelter facility in the last several months, be monitored for potential extra funding if needed. The countys response, sent in a letter March 20, refuted several of the citys claims and denied the city any additional funding. We all understand the county wants to cut. Thats a given. But youre going at it the wrong way. Youre not going to cut my service at night, Crozier said. We are spoiled in Pinellas, and we need to keep it going, and we need to figure out the right way to keep it going. Commissioner Curtis Holmes took it a step further, arguing that a governments primary objective was the health and safety of its residents. Saving a comparatively small percentage of the large county budget on EMS did not make sense, he said. I cant get my hands around why this is being done in the first place, he said. I question the wisdom of the county officials. Play UnpluggedLARGO The third annual Playing!

Barbershop Now Open727.588.7755 040314 Preliminary report issued in fatal small plane crash By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER The National Transportation Safety Board has released a preliminary report regarding the fatal plane crash that occurred on March 22 on McMullen Booth Road. According to the report, the Piper PA-28 was damaged when it collided with power lines during a forced landing on the highway in Safety Harbor. The pilot, Jeffrey Bronken, 53, died at the scene, and the two passengers, the pilots 15-year-old daughter, Katherine Bronken, and her 15-year-old friend, Keyana Linbo, were seriously injured. Katherine later died on March 26. Linbo is reported to have improved to stable condition. According to preliminary information from the Federal Aviation Administration, the airplane was in radio and radar contact with air traffic control as it approached PIE (the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport,) the report said. The pilot subsequently reported a fuel emergency and the plane impacted power lines about six miles north of PIE. The wreckage came to rest upright, nosedown, oriented on a southeasterly heading on the highway beneath the power lines. All major components of the airplane were accounted for at the scene. The engine and cockpit area were crushed inward and the cabin roof had separated. The cabin roof, where the top of the cockpit door met the cabin, exhibited an impact mark consistent with a wire strike. The impact mark was a similar size to an approximate 1.25-inchthick aluminum power line that had separated during the impact, causing a power outage to the area. The aluminum power line had been located about 160 feet above the highway. The left main fuel tank remained intact during the crash, and FAA inspectors recovered only about 4 ounces of fuel from it, the report said. The right wing was undamaged with the exception of a partial separation of the right flap, and the right fuel tank was compromised at its fuel drain, the report said. During recovery, the FAA inspector observed some drops of fuel dripping from the right tank. The fuel selector was found positioned to the left main fuel tank. Jeffrey Bronken had a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land, and his most recent FAA second-class medical certificate was issued in October 2013, the report said. At that time, he had a total flight experience of 1,549 hours. According to a NTSB spokesman, final, official reports of crashes can take up to a year to complete. Photo by JAY RICHMONDInvestigators worked much of the day on March 22 collecting evidence and cleaning up the scene of fatal small airplane crash. Police beat Police beatMan killed in alcohol-related crashLARGO A 32-year-old man was killed in an alcohol-related vehicle crash on Starkey Road, just after midnight March 30, according to Largo police. A 2008 Chevy was headed south on Starkey Road at around 12:44 a.m., when it veered out of control just south of Ulmerton Road, sliding sideways into a culvert. The car went airborne and rolled at least once, partially ejecting driver Shannon Ollek. Ollek was pronounced dead at the scene. Ollek and his passenger, 55year-old Kelly Cronin, were not wearing their seatbelts. Police first reported Ollek as the passenger, and because alcohol was named as a factor in the crash, stated that charges were pending the outcome of the investigation. Since Ollek has been determined to be the driver, charges are no longer expected.Arrests made in child abuse caseCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a Clearwater man and his wife March 29 in connection with sexual battery of an 8-year-old female. James P. Millard, 29, was charged with two counts of sexual battery of a child less than 12 years old. Bond was set at $200,000. His wife, Jennifer Millard, 31, was charged with one count of neglect of a child. Her bond was set at $5,000. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies said the 8-year-old victim, who was known to the suspect at the time of the incidents, disclosed that the suspect sexually battered her on multiple occasions over the past two years. Deputies met with Mr. Millard March 29 and he reportedly admitted to sexually abusing the victim on two occasions. Deputies also met with Millards wife, who told them she was aware of the prior acts of sexual abuse and failed to report the incidents or protect the child from the sexual abuse. Three arrested for synthetic marijuanaCLEARWATER The owner of a local food mart, an employee and a customer were arrested March 25 after narcotics detectives found synthetic cannabinoids while serving a search warrant. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, an investigation revealed multiple violations of the sale of synthetic cannabinoids. The search warrant was executed at the High Point Food Mart located at 6201 150th Ave. N. in Clearwater about 10:55 a.m. Storeowner Nageswara Rao Chapalamadugu, 54, was arrested and charged with two counts of sale and possession of a controlled substance. Edward Earl Watkins, a store clerk, from Bradenton also was charged with two counts of sale and possession of a controlled substance. A customer, Kenneth Gene Clark, 50, of Clearwater, who had just purchased a package of the synthetic cannabinoids, was charged with possession of a controlled substance. In July 2012, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office began a campaign to notify various food marts, gas stations and retail establishments, warning them that it is illegal to sell or possess synthetic marijuana. Deputies have delivered about 634 pre-written letters into storeowners and clerks, warning them about the risks of synthetic marijuana, commonly referred to as spice or K2. The letter informed them that it is a third degree felony to possess or sell the product. Many storeowners voluntarily removed the products from their shelves. Others did not. If people do not want to do it voluntarily, we will serve search warrants and people will go to jail, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. According to narcotics detectives, the High Point Food Mart received eight warning letters to stop the sale of synthetic cannabinoids. Between the Jan. 29 and March 16, the store sold synthetic cannabinoids four times to undercover detectives and the products tested positive for the controlled substances JWH-11, XLR11, UR144 and AB Pinacca. An undercover detective made another purchase of the product before the search warrant was served on March 25. Detectives said the products were hidden out of the public view, behind the counter and under the pizza warmer. Some of the spice sold had cartoon characters on the product packaging and appeared to be marketed to children. High Point Elementary school is less than 1 mile from High Point Food Mart. During the sale of the synthetic cannabinoids, the products were sold as a grocery items and were taxed. At times, customers paid for the product using EBT cards, which are used by Food Stamp recipients and others on government assistance.Man injured when hit by car in SeminoleSEMINOLE A St. Petersburg man was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with serious injuries after a car hit him about 2:49 a.m. March 25 on Park Boulevard. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Dennis A. Fischer, 35, of St. Petersburg was attempting to cross Park Boulevard southbound when he stepped into the path of a 2005 Kia Sedona driven by Errol B. Converse, 49, of St. Petersburg. Converse was traveling eastbound on Park Boulevard in the center lane east of 83rd Street North. Converse and his passenger, Shangria W. Jones, 44, of Seminole were uninjured. No charges were filed.Storage facility fire under investigationPALM HARBOR Authorities are investigating a March 26 fire at a private storage facility in Palm Harbor that damaged property belonging to about 80 victims. The facility housed boats, RVs and cars. Detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Arson/Auto Theft Unit along with Palm Harbor Fire Rescue and the State Fire Marshall are involved in the investigation. Deputies responded to the fire at the Florida West RV Storage, 4470 Alt. U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor about 12:39 a.m. Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit are investigating a phone scam in which the caller claims to be a lieutenant with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Detectives say the subject contacts potential victims telling them they have an outstanding warrant for their arrest on a no-show for jury duty and attempts to collect as much as $800 in fines by instructing them to purchase prepaid cards and call him back with the information. Detectives warn residents to beware of the phone scam. They also remind residents that the Sheriffs Office would not call persons with outstanding warrants and would never require persons with outstanding warrants to pay a fine via a prepaid or green dot card, or via any other third party vendor. Three similar type incidents were reported over the weekend from March 21 through March 23. One of those was received by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. According to investigators, the caller identifies himself as Lieutenant John Roberts of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and informs the potential victim that a warrant has been issued for their arrest for a failure to appear for jury duty. Detectives say the caller then instructs the potential victim to purchase a prepaid debit card or green dot card to pay for the fines; he further tells them what store to buy it from and to call him back with the information. Detectives say he has also told potential victims that if they do not do as instructed he would come to their house to arrest them. According to investigators in each of the reported cases, the calls were received from the same local number, which is now disconnected. If you have been a victim of this crime, please contact the Economic Crimes Unit at 727-582-6200.Sheriffs Office warns of lieutenant scam James Millard Jennifer Millard

To verify your watering days, visit www.pinel lascounty.org/utilities/water-restrict.htm. Prepare now for hurricane seasonThe 2014 Atlantic hurricane season doesnt start until June 1. This is the prime time for residents to review their survival plans. Activities such as outdoor improvements and adding additional bracing to an attic are easier to accomplish before the summer heat sets in. Some key actions to take now include: Register for special needs evacuation assistance. Residents with certain qualifying medical conditions can apply for special assistance in the event of a hurricane evacuation. Call Pinellas County Emergency Management at 464-3800, Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County at 824-6900 or a local fire department to start the process. Residents needing more advanced medical assistance should work with their physicians to ensure planning can be in place before the storm winds begin to blow. Check the envelope. Are there shutters for the windows? Is the roof in good repair? Is there rot in soffits or fascia? How is the caulk in the windows and doors? These simple repairs and improvements can make a home more survivable and keep water out in driving rains. Tend to trees. This is an excellent time to check trees for broken, dead or diseased limbs and have them removed. If it has been a while since a tree was pruned, or if the pruning has to take place on high limbs, have a licensed tree trimmer provide an estimate and a plan of action. Trimming trees can be a dangerous activity, and improperly pruned trees tend to fare poorly in high wind situations. While these preparations are essential for hurricane season, they can help residents get ready for other hazards, including summer thunderstorms. For more information about how to prepare for hurricanes, visit www.pinellascounty.org/emergency to find evacuation levels, learn about storm dangers and discover how to create a disaster plan. To report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

Jesse P. Sawyer, 25, of Pinellas Park, was booked into the Pinellas County Jail about 4:17 p.m. on a FBI federal warrant for production of child pornography. The story began just before 11 p.m. March 27, when Pinellas Park police received word from the Troy, New York Police Department that Sawyer was at Calvary Chapel, 8900 U.S. 19. They were told that an active warrant was out for Sawyers arrest on child pornography charges. But, Troy police didnt tell Pinellas Park PD that the warrant was from the FBI, and Troy PD did not tell local officials that Sawyer was accused of raping little girls, said Sgt. Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park police public information officer. Pinellas Park police went to the location and made contact with Sawyer. Geissenberger said Sawyer was cooperative. He didnt try to run or give a false name. After making contact, officers found out that the warrant was actually from the FBI and began procedures to confirm the warrant via a computer. There was no response, Geissenberger said. We dont know why. When no response came back from the computer, officers called the FBI in Albany, N.Y. Geissenberger said the woman they talked to was unable to confirm the warrant. She told them she would make some calls and they should call her back, Geissenberger said. Eventually officers spoke to a special agent who had knowledge of the warrant, but he could not confirm it, as was required by policy. More than an hour passed from the time Pinellas Park PD made contact with Sawyer and officers still were unable to confirm the warrant. At 12:40 a.m., the shift commander, a lieutenant, made the decision to release him. At 12:46 a.m., computer confirmation of the warrant was received. But now, weve cut him lose, Geissenberger said. We immediately deploy resources. But, hes gone, in the wind and we cant find him. As the search for Sawyer continued, Pinellas Park PD began to take some heat on its Facebook page and in the media, especially in Troy where they describe the man as a monster, a sexual offender accused of raping little children, Geissenberger said. But, as it went down, Pinellas Park followed policy, as well as state and federal law. A verbal confirmation is not enough to confirm (the warrant), he said. A reasonable amount of time expired and based on the totality of circumstances, without having Troy, N.Y., give the full magnitude and severity of it being a sex crime of a child and not knowing it was multiple rapes of a child. In an ideal world, Troy PD would have contacted the FBI in Albany, who would have contacted the Tampa office, and local agents would have made the arrest with the assistance of Pinellas Park police, he said. As it was, Pinellas Park police arrested Sawyer around 2 p.m. about a mile from where they talked to him less than 14 hours earlier. Geissenberger said he had gone for a walk. Officers called his cellphone and he answered. They advised him the best thing to do would be to surrender. He told them his general area and they found him in a parking lot in the 8700 block of 49th Street N., Geissenberger said. He surrendered with no resistance. Pinellas Park police had prior contact with Sawyer in January, Geissenberger said. Officers found him sleeping in an abandoned building.

For more information on mobile collections including a full list of accepted items, instructions on how to transport chemicals and future dates, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/mobile.htm. At that time, there was no warrant for his arrest. Geissenberger said if Pinellas Park PD had been more fully informed the circumstances might have been different. The department will be reviewing its policies. But at the end of the day, he was apprehended. We followed policy. We deployed all our resources as soon as we understood the severity. The department did all it could. According to media reports from Troy, Sawyer took pictures of himself with his cell phone while sexually abusing three children one age 6 and two others age 5. The photos were then downloaded to a computer. Geissenberger said Sawyer would remain in the Pinellas County Jail without bond until the FBI extradites him to New York. Its on their timetable now, he said. Jesse P. Sawyer

Comfort Keepers takes pride in our team consisting of a cohesive staff and one hundred plus caregivers working together towards the same goal of providing our community of seniors with the utmost care, enabling them to stay safe and happy in the comfort of their own homes. At Comfort Keepers our goal is to create a team of caregivers who have the heart, patience, dedication, loyalty and love for nurturing others. This sounds like a perfect mix of attributes and ones that do exist in so many people. Caregiving can be one of the most difficult yet rewarding careers. To some it comes naturally, especially if you are a nurturer by nature. For others it may be a calling they are somewhat unsure of but feel they wish to pursue. A key and valued portion of the interviewing process at Comfort Keepers is to learn the desire of the potential candidate to join the Comfort Keepers Team as a caregiver. We are a team centered on making a difference in each clients home in order to provide the very best of care and understanding of the individual needs. We create a Plan of Care specific to each person and do our utmost to match a caregiver with each client. Making a good match is highly important in building trust between caregiver and client. We do our best to match caregivers to clients in regards to personalities, while paying close attention to skills needed. Our caregivers participate in spring and fall in-services with many topics to choose from. We have several guest speakers who graciously give of their time to assist us in our training meetings. These training topics include caring for alzheimers dementia clients, hospice awareness, falls risk prevention and transferring, senior nutrition and elder abuse. Our mission is to provide our caregivers with the knowledge most pertinent to caring for our seniors which in turn builds their confidence to offer the best possible care to our clients. Experience is not the #1 ingredient to being a good caregiver. It takes personality, empathy, reliability and most of all willingness to serve on both good and bad days. Caregivers often visit with me and share stories regarding their time spent with clients. It is quite touching to see in their eyes and hear in their voice that they are truly fulfilled in playing such an important role in the lives of others.

Industrial facility sellsLARGO Klein & Heuchan Inc. successfully represented the seller, MLE LLC in the sale of 12382 Starkey Road in Largo. This 13,704-square-foot dock high industrial facility provides six overhead doors and heavy power. With concrete construction and direct access from Starkey Road, the property provides exceptional visibility and signage. The sale price was $325,000. M.F. Bud Lytle of Klein & Heuchan Inc. represented the seller in this transaction. High quality industrial buildings with great visibility are difficult to find, said Mark Klein in a press release. Klein is president and CEO of Klein & Heuchan Inc. This building enabled the buyer to purchase a dock high concrete building on a major north/south roadway. With financing readily available, and prices fairly low, buyers are finding they can purchase their buildings for often less than they are paying in rent. We expect this to remain the case for some time.Clearwater apartments soldCLEARWATER Klein & Heuchan Inc. successfully represented the seller Vincent Dippolito in the sale of 2761 and 2759 Cypress Drive in Clearwater. The buyer was Johan Wilsson. The property consists of two triplex buildings on separate lots located near the Westfield Countryside Mall. The sale price was $355,000. Joe Santolucito of Klein & Heuchan Inc. represented the seller in this transaction. The demand for well-located multifamily buildings is extremely strong, said Steve Klein, vice president of Klein & Heuchan. We have a fairly strong backlog of buyers for this type of product and we have been selling all of the properties we are listing. The small apartment market gives the investor an opportunity to purchase real estate and diversify their portfolio while maintaining control over the asset.

Leader, April 3, 201410A ViewpointsWhenever I hear somebody say that the lack of corporal punishment in the schools has led to the demise of public education, I immediately think about Ol Fat Face. Mr. B was an assistant principal in my junior high school back in the late s. He was about 6 feet tall and had a blimp of a belly. On hot spring days, Ol Fat Faces white shirts, which he wore every day, were stained with perspiration around the armpits. Ive written about Ol Fat Face before. Guess you can say he left an impression on me, but more so on other students, especially their rear ends. Students who misbehaved routinely were summoned to Ol Fat Faces office for discipline. He wielded a large paddle and swung it freely, too. So did the shop teacher and almost all the physical education teachers. To this day, I dont know who was the hellion who broke a bottle of cologne in the gym showers. Since nobody confessed, my eighth grade PE teacher decided to give licks to every kid in the locker room that day. Some of us, sly rascals that we were, went from row to row in the locker room to avoid the sting of the paddle, snickering all the way. Somehow, we escaped. Two days later, Coach R apologized to the entire class, saying he had made a poor choice to discipline all the students instead of just the culprit. Apparently, school phones had rang off the hook, and administrators had to do some damage control to appease angry parents whose kids were paddled. Despite that incident, most of the students got along with Coach R. We didnt give him a nickname, and he didnt smell, either. But I could write a book about Ol Fat Face. One afternoon in the lunchroom, my friend, Timmy, a big kid, put his hands around my neck, pretending to strangle me. Ol Fat Face must have missed a meal that day. He was in a bad mood and was on to Timmy like ugly on an ape. Gesturing with one finger, Ol Fat Face signaled to Timmy to follow him out of the cafeteria. I spent the next hour worried what Ol Fat Face was going to do to Timmy and what Timmy was going to do to me for not telling Ol Fat Face that Timmy was just horsing around, that he didnt hurt me. Finally, Timmy entered the classroom, wearing a poker face. He sat down next to me, looking straight ahead. When the teacher turned to write something on the blackboard, Timmy put his hands around my neck again, giggling. The three licks from the paddlewielding assistant principal had not fazed him. In fact some students competed to see who could get the most licks before they graduated from ninth grade. Not me. I was a small kid, and I had about as much meat on my rear as a worms. So you can imagine my fear and anxiety when I was summoned to the administration building one afternoon to see Ol Fat Face. One look at his secretarys angry eyes told me I was in trouble. Mr. B wants to see you in his office, right now. Now I lay me down to sleep. As I walked into the office, two oversized feet quickly slid off the desk and I was gazing into the bulging dark eyes of Ol Fat Face. He ordered me to sit down and handed me a piece of paper that my school bus driver had given him. Some student had scribbled profanity about me on the paper. Tommy Germond is a skinny, snot-nosed little X#$@!, it said. Did you write this? Ol Fat Face asked, his voice rising rapidly. Why would I call myself a skinny, snotnosed little blanklety, blank? Dumb as the day is long, I thought. He stared at me. Well, if you didnt, who did? I dont know, sir. It took him several seconds to digest my testimony. You better not be lying, and youd better tell me if you find out who wrote this, he said, dismissing me. Yes, sir. Found my way out in a hurry, perspiring more than Ol Fat Face. Never told my parents about the incident. Had Ol Fat Face paddled me for something I didnt do, Im not sure how my dad would have reacted, but a line from Chief Dan George in the movie The Outlaw Josey Wales would probably be on point: Hell is coming to breakfast. My revenge? I disfigured Ol Fat Faces picture in my yearbook. Thinking back on that era, the state of education then and today, legislators attempts to raise academic standards, maintain discipline in the classroom and make schools safer for teachers and students, I dont know what the answers are. Im just glad Ol Fat Face didnt carry a gun.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email tgermond@TBNweek ly.com.Just imagine, being a few years away from retirement, enjoying the benefits of life as a grandparent, aunt, uncle or godparent. As part of your weekly routine you pick the children up on Friday night for bonding, watching movies, reading bedtime stories and return them to their parents Sunday afternoon. One evening as you prepare for the upcoming week, returning phone calls and planning time for work, with friends or for hobbies, there is a knock on the door. You open the door, and to your surprise, there stand several police officers with your grandchildren, niece, nephew or the neighbors children. One of the officers mentioned that if you do not take all of the children in your home at that moment, they would be placed in foster care. This can have tragic results, such as losing contact with the children, the siblings becoming separated from each other for months or even years before their biological parents regain custody. Instantly, the decision is made to take the children in, thus starting your life of parenting for the second time around. Caregivers throughout the United States have always cared for children through formal and informal arrangements. Family caregiving roles have been in existence for centuries. According to aarp.org, there is an estimated 2.4 million caregivers in the United States. Approximately 1.6 million are grandparents and an average of 896,000 other caregivers such as aunt, uncle, older siblings and godparent. In addition, grandfacts.org mentioned that there is an estimated 25 million people who have the responsibility of caring for a loved one with little or no support or compensation. When children initially come into the care of a relative, most are not aware of the vast amount of community resource services and other supports that are available to them. Kinship Services Network, a program of The Childrens Home provides, services in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties. The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County, The Childrens Board of Hillsborough County, United Way of Suncoast, Eckerd Community Alternatives, Inc. and The Childrens Bureau fund this program. Kinship Services Network offers in-home supportive case management to help families navigate and link to the services they need, such as counseling, legal assistance, financial management, debt counseling and public benefits, respite care and emotional support. KSN offers monthly support groups and family activities throughout the county for both caregivers and the children in their care. Through educational sessions, hands on activities, food and fun, support groups provide the opportunity for a caregiver to meet other caregivers who are in similar situations. Kinship can connect caregivers to much needed programs and supports.

Thats odd, because the series has aired three episodes and theyre all about victims of prosecutorial abuse. So far, nobodys really guilty. The second episode features a woman who never spent a night on death row. From what Ive seen, they should have named the series, narrated by anti-death-penalty activist Susan Sarandon, Death Row Propaganda. Episode two, the website says, is about Gloria Killian, who was charged with capital murder, found guilty of murder in the first degree, and sent to prison in 1986. Thats misleading. Killian wasnt tried for capital murder. After she was convicted for her role in a 1981 home invasion murder in Sacramento, Calif., she was sentenced to 32 years to life. Later, a federal court overturned her conviction because prosecutors had withheld evidence. Why make an episode for a death row series about a woman not sentenced to death? She was threatened with the death penalty, executive producer Brad Hebert replied. Any guilty people in your series? Three out of eight episodes, Hebert answered. On further questioning, he posited that his staff members are torn on the guilt of one, although they agree he did not get a fair trial. Another was convicted in military court after he was acquitted in civilian court. Only Nathan Dunlap, Colorados Chuck E. Cheese killer, who shot and killed four workers, is presented as guilty and remorseless, if severely bipolar. But wait; Gov. John Hickenlooper postponed Dunlaps execution indefinitely. Director Steve Rivo thinks Dunlap got a fair trial. He added that even death penalty supporters agree capital punishment is not really a deterrent. I dont agree. It deterred Clarence Ray Allen, the most recent inmate executed in California in 2006. Allen was in prison for the murder of his sons 17-year-old girlfriend when he ordered the death of eight witnesses. Three people died. He got the death penalty, and now Allen cannot reoffend. The series first episode is about an intern who dug up evidence that exonerated South Carolinas Edward Lee Elmore. New York Law School professor Robert Blecker, a supporter of capital punishment, thought it was a solid episode, as Elmore is an example of someone who never should have been condemned to death. The problem is that producers are stuck in a narrative: Intern or astronauts mother or priest finds evidence that prevents the execution of an innocent inmate. Theres another narrative and in my experience, its more prevalent: Convicted killer finds easily duped advocates who ignore evidence and smear prosecutors. When convicted rapist/murderer Michael Morales was scheduled for execution in 2006, his attorneys released a statement in which a witness accused prosecutors of coercing her to give false testimony at trial. The affidavit turned out to be a forgery. Still, Morales lawyers won. They got a federal judge to stay his execution in a constitutional challenge to Californias lethal-injection protocol. There hasnt been an execution in the state since. There may be no safer place for a convicted killer than on Californias death row. Thats Californias real death row story.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.A couple of days ago I got to wondering about dandruff. Whatever happened to it? When I was a boy during the McKinley administration you couldnt open a newspaper or magazine without being warned about dandruff. If you were on a date with a girl and she noticed the flecks of dandruff on your shoulders, you were finished. It didnt matter that dandruff was not contagious and did not signify your membership in the Communist Party or AMORC (Ancient Mystic Order of the Rosy Cross). If you had dandruff, you were a slob. Or so said the drug companies that sold an alleged cure for dandruff. Even back then, pharmaceutical firms bent the truth, and they havent stopped since. Im probably mistaken in thinking that dandruff has disappeared or faded from our civilization. After all, dandruff is nothing more than dead skin cells. My exhaustive research reveals that about half a million cells are released each day from our scalps, and even more if you live in Phoenix or Reno and other places where the air is abnormally dry. Regular shampooing can reduce the amount of dandruff, so modern Americans arent nearly as worried about it as they used to be. Instead, the drug companies run frightening advertisements about other maladies, such as yellow teeth. Remember the old jingle, Youll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent.? What a crock. Today everyone knows you cant remove teeth stains with toothpaste. Youve got to find a dental specialist with a Ph.D., licensed to practice the arcane art of teeth whitening. Only after a series of pricey visits can you step back into polite society, confident that your smile is just as blindingwhite as it should be. Getting back to dandruff: Is there any connection between dandruff and dander? Are you sure you know what dander is? I know that dogs and other pets tend to shed dander, which is mostly discarded skin cells, same as dandruff. Dander can cause breathing problems and other allergic reactions. If someone becomes angry, people will say Look out hes got his dander up. Does this mean that if a scientist took air samples of someone experiencing road rage, his/her dander index would be higher than that of a person quietly meditating in a Hooters restaurant? A person who gets his or her dander up also may be accused of having a conniption, or a conniption fit. Its not clear where the word conniption came from. Many English words have no clear origin. One of them is funky. Next time you hear someone refer to funky music or funky clothing, ask him to precisely define funky. Hell probably try to give you examples, but that really wont do it. If he succeeds in giving you a definition of funky, ask someone else to do the same thing. I guarantee you the two definitions wont agree. Can you define crud? Sure you can. Its almost any disgusting material, a built-up layer of filth, dirt or slime. The term crud is sometimes applied to a person. What a crud that guy turned out to be. The word probably wasnt used, or even known, before the 1940s or thereabouts. Early records indicate World War II servicemen gave the name crud to social diseases. Another interesting, vague word is jiffy. Exactly how long is a jiffy? Weve all used that expression at times. Ill be back in a jiffy. I dont know the time limits of a jiffy, but engineers and physicists seem to. They have assigned specific measurements, such as how long it takes for an electron or light wave to travel through a vacuum tube, or between an elephants tail and its trunk. Stuff like that. A similarly undefined measurement of time is a trice. Is a jiffy longer or shorter than a trice? As her beau impatiently waited in his hansom, Amanda got dressed in a trice and flew out the door. When is the last time you used the expression in a trice? Never? Me, too. Thats enough word play for the day. I appreciate your following me through the tangled wilds of dandruff, dander, conniptions, funky, crud, jiffy and trice. I realize that most readers would have preferred that I write my thoughts on missing Malaysian airliner 370. I considered doing that, but then I realized that every worthwhile fact or idea about that plane has already been covered. In triplicate and ad nauseam. Too bad the national news media havent yet awakened to that fact.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Behar will rotate to a new assignment at the end of the school year. According to Sgt. Brian Unmisig, spokesperson for the PPPD, this rotation is part of a department protocol that rotates officers after five years on one specialized assignment. In certain circumstances, these assignments can be extended for an extra year, and Behar has already has his SRO assignment extended one year. [The decision] goes back to our rotation policy in place, Unmisig said. To extend [Behar] again would have been against our normal procedures and policies. In Keep Officer Behar, a Facebook group created by his supporters, Behar broke the news that he wont be returning to PPHS next year. This news has me disappointed, but I am a loyal employee to my agency and respect (Chief Dorene Thomas) decision. I am asking all of you to do the same, he wrote. This minor setback will not stop me from achieving my goal. My plan is to take my knowledge and experience and move forward into another position. I assure all of you, this will not be the last you hear of me. The Marine Corps has taught me to be a leader and make positive changes that would benefit everyone. I transformed the school into a positive and safe learning environment for all of you. Behar began his career working for the New York City Police Department from 2000 to 2004. There he also took on the role of SRO. When he relocated to New Port Richey and took a job with the PPPD, he indicated that hed like to continue his work as an SRO in Pinellas Park. In 2008, he became SRO at Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School. The moment I stepped foot in the door I knew my journey would be a challenging one, Behar wrote in the Facebook group. As the take-charge type [of] person, I jumped right in and set the tone. In doing so, I earned respect from students and staff. Once the respect was earned, things began to fall into place. The next year, he moved to the high school. While he focused on securing the safety of all students and faculty on campus, Behar also counseled students and spearheaded a variety of events, including the 9/11 memorial ceremony and drivers safety courses. [These] past six years has been the best and most rewarding time a police officer would encounter, Behar wrote. Behars supporters have accepted Chief Thomas decision but are sad to see him go. PPHS will never be the same without you, wrote student Kaitlynn Burroughs. I first met you at Morgan and knew right away how passionate you were for your job. You didnt just work day to day; you made an effort to connect with everyone and actually show that someone does care about us. Elise Crepeau, whose daughter attends PPHS and who spearheaded the effort to keep Behar at the high school last fall, wrote in the group, Harold, you are the best and only one for that position right now. The kids of PPHS will be the ones to suffer without your presence Continue to do what you do and be the man that you are and you will succeed in any position. Much love and respect.

Saint Pauls makes quilts for orphansCLEARWATER Last year, Saint Pauls School students participated in the St. Peters Love Quilt Global World Awareness Project. This project provides handmade quilts to orphans in South Africa. Each quilt incorporates art squares filled with messages of love drawn by children. The process of making the art squares and quilts helps teach the importance of compassion. The quilts are gifts of love, warmth, and support to children in need. Marcie Berthold, Saint Pauls art teacher; and Marilyn Swan, music teacher, teamed up to introduce this project to Saint Pauls students in the fall of 2011. Since then the students have continued to create beautiful messages and art that will be given to special South African orphans. On March 15, at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter in St. Petersburg, the art squares that the students created last year were on display in the finished quilt. The exhibit included a presentation on the quilts and the history of the project. The Saint Pauls quilts will be given to the orphan children in South Africa this coming summer. Teachers are already scheduling for students to create more squares for the next quilt they will send to Africa. Eckerd College receives Luce grantST.

Four Pinellas cities recognized as Healthy Weight ChampionsThe Florida Department of Health recently recognized 37 communities four of them in Pinellas County as Healthy Weight Community Champions. The cities of Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg will be honored with certificates signed by State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health John A. Armstrong, MD, FACS. The certificates will be presented at public meetings with personalized Healthy Weight graphics that can be used in city documents and promotional items. A full list of the Champion Communities and best practices are at www.HealthiestWeightFL.com. Between November 2013 and February 2014, local governments were invited to submit best practice policies they have implemented to promote physical activity and improve nutrition in their jurisdictions. These best practice policies are exemplified by the Healthy Weight Community Champions. This is a brief selection of the best practices submitted by cities in Pinellas: Some of Clearwaters bike and walking trails lead to produce stands, supermarkets or farmers markets, including its Wednesday Farmers Market downtown. Largos free Playing Unplugged regional event at Largo Central Park provides 10 play spaces for families to explore, build and create. Pinellas Parks Community Garden offers raised garden boxes to residents for a minimal fee as a way to make fresh produce easier to grow. St. Petersburg has 35 miles of trails for recreation and it has markedly improved the time required to repair sidewalks and trails Efforts to improve health are often most effective at the local level and the department wants to recognize the outstanding progress made by these communities to promote healthy weight, Armstrong said in a press release. The commitment of these municipalities and counties affect nearly 9.4 million Floridians and help further statewide collaborative efforts to make Florida the healthiest state in the nation. The Community Champions program is part of the departments Healthiest Weight Florida initiative. Healthiest Weight Florida is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, local governments, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, schools, faith-based organizations and entire communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living.

NOTES, from page 11ARaising awarenessHer sons brain tumor diagnosis inspires a local mom to organize a Sept. 13 walk for childhood awareness By TIFFANY RAZZANOOne evening last October, while Ethan Fabac shopped at a local Publix supermarket with his family, all he saw was pink. Pink balloons. Pink banners. Pink labels on grocery items. It was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; its hard to go anywhere without being overwhelmed by pink in October. The 10-year-old asked his mother why there was so much visible support for breast cancer but none for childhood cancer awareness. The month prior, doctors had discovered a tumor on his brain stem, and at the time of the shopping trip, Ethan was only a month into 35 rounds of radiation treatment. His mother, Natalie Fabac, didnt have an answer for him. But when she went home and did some research, she learned that September had been National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. And I had no idea, she said. And I had a child just diagnosed with cancer. So think of all the people out there who dont know about it. So she decided to do something. This fall, shes teaming up with Illinois-based AshleyCan Pediatric Cancer Foundation to plan a Sept. 13 walk to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer, the leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States. That night made me realize that I had to do something to support my son, Natalie said. Theres a lot of children with cancer and you just dont know it. These kids need to know they have the support. Now shes on the hunt for local businesses to sponsor what she hopes will become an annual event.A mother knows It all started with a headache and a trip to the emergency room last August. Doctors didnt find anything major wrong with Ethan, though, and sent him home. Weeks later, he had another bad headache, which led to another ER visit. Both times he was misdiagnosed and sent home, Natalie said. But a mother knows her son best. During his third emergency room visit, she insisted Ethan have an MRI. She had researched brain tumors and had a gut feeling that something wasnt right with her son. They discovered a tumor, a Grade II Ependymoma, growing on his brain stem. He was diagnosed on Sept. 3 and was in surgery at All Childrens Hospital by the next day. After I found out I had to have surgery, I was super scared, Ethan said. But then they told me I would be asleep for it and I felt better about it. Hes so tough, Natalie said. Hes stayed stronger than his Mommy through all of this.TreatmentAfter surgery, the radiation treatments began. Several times a week, Natalie would take Ethan to Tampa for treatments, worrying the whole time about whether the tumor would grow back. But what Ethan remembers the most from these trips is the snarling rush hour traffic. We had to drive so far for it, he said. And the traffic was so bad. It took forever to get there and to get home. Natalie considered entering him into clinical trials, but backed out when she learned they werent usually effective on Ethans type of cancer. At the time, he was entering fifth grade at Seminole Elementary School. Following surgery, he had to be homeschooled. But he made principals list, Natalie said. And since going back in January, he hasnt missed a single day of school. Friends visited him at home, and they distracted him with the things 10-year-old boys like to do: playing video games, fishing. In fact, grabbing a rod and reel and heading to local docks with friends and family became his favorite pastime. [Fishing] started to click for me, he said. I just started catching a lot of things. And he likes to show off his battle wound a scar that begins at the nape of his neck and travels upwards several inches. Physically hes doing pretty well now, Natalie said. But he needs to have his brain scanned every three months. We have to live month to month with the scans for the next five years, she said. I have to keep an eye on him. Im always on edge. Every headache becomes something more.AshleyCan FoundationThroughout Ethans illness, social media has been a life support for Natalie. In various online forums and Facebook groups, shes met other moms with children battling cancer around the country, many with the exact same cancer Ethan had. One of the women she met was Maureen Montgomery, whose daughter, Ashley Montgomery, also was diagnosed with Ependymoma. The Montgomery family lives in Illinois, about 50 miles south of Chicago. In 2001, when Ashley was 10, doctors discovered a tumor growing on Ashleys brain stem. They did everything right: surgery, radiation, brain scans every three months, then every six months, and as Ashley got older, just once a year. Ashley was cancer-free for nearly seven years, when they discovered the tumor had grown back. She was 16, just months shy of turning 17, and the doctors were surprised it had returned. This time around they treated it even more aggressively, Maureen said, but there was always the chance that the treatment itself could kill her daughter. And much like Natalie, Maureen didnt know that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and that the cause has adopted the color gold, much like breast cancer uses pink to rally support. When she learned this, she wanted to do more. In 2009, Maureen formed the AshleyCan Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The organization held its first fundraiser, a 5K race, in 2011. All of the proceeds go to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, the world leader in childrens cancer research. Ashley, today 23, is vice president of the foundation, frequently speaks at childhood cancer awareness events and is attending college. Though Ashley is cancer free now, the family is still determined to help the cause. Were trying to make even a little bit of a difference so no other family has to go through what we went through, Maureen said. And now shes branching out to other states. Childhood cancer has no state lines; it has no boundaries, she said. Natalies Seminole event is the first out-of-state event Maureen is helping to organize. The Sept. 13 walk will coincide with the Illinois event and National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day.Getting organizedThough shes overwhelmed by the scope of what shes trying to accomplish, Natalie is determined. Ive never done anything like this before, she said. But we need something like this in Seminole. We need to raise money for [childhood cancer] research and awareness of the need for funding. She added, I wish we didnt have to be part of something like this. But we need to raise awareness for our community. Shes already booked the citys Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex for the Sept. 13 walk. And through social media, shes found some help locally. Jamie Smitte, whose father succumbed to cancer two years ago and founded Quilts of Hope, which makes quilts for children with cancer, has offered her assistance. Both she and Maureen have been amazing, Natalie said. Theyve been absolutely wonderful. Now shes seeking local business sponsors to step up and support their cause shes been knocking on doors and making cold calls as well as volunteers for the day of the race. Were hoping its a huge event, she said. Were just hoping we can pull it off. For more information about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, email Natalie at prayersforethan@live.com.

As he recovers, his mother, Natalie Fabac, is inspired to organize a Sept. 13 walk to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

He dates enthusiastically but has never taken the big leap. I do not have to point out how unusual he is. Humans are passionate bonders. We console ourselves that love is as perennial as the grass but nonetheless develop very strong preferences for particular people. Yet, when animals behave the same way, we simply say they are unsentimentally consorting temporarily or mate guarding. Last month in heavy fog, Capt. John Heidemann and I were escorted at sea by three local bottlenose dolphins, bonded bull pair BB and DD2 and their current companion local lady Slightwin. They swam sleepily beside us as our research boat purred through the fog. I love it when dolphins do that. It is rare. Our local dolphins are up and doing. They have no more time to drowsily escort boats than prolific people have to hang out. The dolphins groggy nearness let me chip away at my unending curiosity about them. It added a layer of admiration on my view of dolphin echolocation, which continues to function flawlessly in weather conditions like fog that render the primary human sense of vision quite inadequate. It also pointed out that big bull BB is escorting lady Slightwin. Like before. One exquisite turquoise day this week, we saw the three of them again. They slowly cruised under a neat little bridge and commenced, in that curious dolphin way, to meander diagonally across a broad bay. Midway, a tiny black body covered with white dots leapt spectacularly into their midst. It was Sticks calf Twig, barely six months old. Stick hunted in the distance, her mothering skills unimproved. Her tiny Twig amuses itself as best it can, playing with floating flotsam and passing boats more often than do other calves its age. BB and DD2 know Stick well. It is not normal for bottlenose babies to be black and covered with white dots (and we wish Sticks little sprout the best of luck). But Twig is probably not contagious. Yet, the BB trio ran away! Actually, their flight created an arrowhead pattern of waves, revealing that Slightwin sprinted away at top speed. The bulls followed her. They sped into a distant cove. Slightwin loitered at its entrance, swam briefly around its interior, returned to the entrance and left. Both bulls did what she did. But when there are two bulls around a female, one is usually the escort and the other stays peripheral to the pair. BB was the escort. He followed her more closely, allowing less space to grow between them. Periodically, though, he distanced himself to find food a bull has to eat and was sprinting after a snack when she left the cove. He hastily returned to her side. BB has hovered around Slightwin like this twice before. It is more than simply staying with a fertile female. From fall 2010 through spring 2011, BB jockeyed between her, rebuffing the stiff rivalry provided by local bull N. Dolphin Watch readers may remember the January 2011 story about dolphin behavior that resembled football; that was one of many fights over Slightwin. That time, Slightwin was definitely fertile and pregnant by June. Dolphins are pregnant for a year. So the following spring of 2012, when BB swam with Slightwin for two months, she was heavily pregnant. If your job is being a wild bull evolutionarily selected to sow your seeds widely, why waste precious spring rite time escorting a pregnant female? Slightwins June calf did not survive. She left the study area for six months, returning that December. BB was soon at her side but only briefly, either ousted by her succession of interested bulls or her choice. One of her choices might have been young bull PC. I do not know if she thought he was cute. But in his charming company, she gave the greatest aerobatic exposition I have seen any dolphin do anyPhoto by ANN WEAVERNo one knows how much bottlenose dolphins express female choice for mates. But one December day, in the company of a young bull, local lady Slightwin gave the greatest aerobatic exposition I have seen by any dolphin anywhere in the world.where in the world. Interestingly, she gave her exposition in the very same cove she rushed into today. The following spring of 2013 BB was again at her side, this time for four months. That was understandable. She was not pregnant. But that could have changed. And now that BBs escort services are apparent again this spring of 2014, I really wonder. Many moons ago, Dolphin Watch made the heretical suggestion that local dolphins may not live up to the species reputation of rampant promiscuity. After all, twice bull N has escorted local lady Split for months. Similarly, if we see lady Osiris, we see bull Midface. Bull Schnoz has escorted lady Split repeatedly. Now the pattern has surfaced between BB and Slightwin. Consorting and mate guarding have to be worked out for bottlenose dolphins. But ultimately we may need different terms for that bull behavior out there, maybe like that handsome heterosexual who is 56 and never been married.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and years of preparation. Jonathan Rudich, 17, of Clearwater has been doing all that and is determined to give an Olympic berth a shot in windsurfing. Rudich trains at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center. He is one of two members of the Sperry Top-Sider Windsurfing U.S. Sailing team in the RS:X class. To get there he had to compete in an International Sailing Federation World Cup event in Miami. It was there he won his spot on the U.S. team. I was one of the two top in a qualifying event last January and I made the team from that, he said. It means that I will get support from the sponsor, have access to physical therapists and other benefits. Just because hes on the team doesnt mean the work stops. In fact Rudich has to continue to qualify, and if he doesnt, he loses his spot on the team. There is a qualifying event every year, he said. So if I want to continue to get the support Im getting now I have to continue to qualify and there are two more years of that before the next summer games in Rio De Janiero in 2016. Even getting this far has been a dream for Rudich. Sailing is in his blood. Both his father and his grandfather were sailors. He fell in love with windsurfing when he was 13, quite by accident. I started windsurfing at a summer camp at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center, he said. It was something I never did before but after a week I knew I wanted to continue into it. Every time out is a new experience. Each time is different; it is never the same. The winds change; the tide changes. You get a sense of freedom. Coach Britt Viehman, who also ran a youth sailing team out of the Clearwater Center, ran that first camp. I joined the team the following fall and through it I was able to improve my skills and eventually partake in competitions, he said. Rudich is now in the middle of what is known in the sailing community as a campaign. A campaign is the four-year period between Olympics during which sailors compete nationally and internationally to earn a spot on the nations Olympic team. Rudich has been all over the world during this campaign. In the last year I have been to many countries either training or competing, he said. I trained in the Netherlands Antilles, and in Spain. And I competed in the RS:X European Windsurfing championships in Brest, France. I finished that competition as the second overall American. Coming up this year Rudich will participate in a competition in Turkey and another in Rio, site of the next Olympics. He describes that competition as a sort of practice Olympics. Along for the ride are Rudichs parents. His mother, Harriet, said she couldnt be more proud of what her son has accomplished. I never imagined when I gave birth to him 17 years ago that he would be in the place where he is right now, she said. For me this is a huge surprise and it is a source of pride because it was so far from anything I ever grew up with. Harriet Rudich said while growing up in Queens in New York City her family was not into sports at all. She said nobody played or watched sports in her household; sports of any kind, let alone sailing she said. I knew nothing about sailing, I grew up on the streets and subways of New York, she said. This is very surprising and exciting, it is overwhelming and awe inspiring. Harriet said the challenge for the family now is to find the means to make her sons dream come true. Were going to try to support him as much as we can and try to get sponsors to help, she said. He cant do this without help. You plan for college but not this; hopefully hell get there through grants and sponsors and whatever is out there. Harriet said she isnt worried about her son as he travels the world because the sailing community seems to look after themselves. It is a tight-knit community and people are very accommodating, she said. When he travels he always has a place to stay, a family will always take him in. The windsurfing community is a nice group of people that help each other. No doubt due to Jonathans success, the Clearwater Community Sailing Center has been named a U.S. Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider Training Center. The designation will help Clearwater attract international competitions and make it easier for Rudich and other aspiring young windsurfers and sailors to train. For now the focus has to be on the job at hand, getting a spot on the Olympic team. It wont be easy. In addition to the time and dedication needed to secure that position Rudich still has school to contend with. Hes a senior at Palm Harbor University High School and hopes to attend either the University of Florida or a California University in the fall. He said California will make it easier to train; Gainesville isnt near water. Still his goal, his dream, is the Olympics. His mother has no doubt it will happen. He is a very determined young man, she said of her son. Always when he set his mind on something, nothing gets in his way. Hopefully, hell be able to do his best to get there.

Dealing with her nosy omnipresent neighbors turns out to be more difficult than she imagined so she invents a mad homicidal sister who is kept locked in an upstairs room.

Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited, Thursday, April 3, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $65. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Steve Hacketts work is featured on some of the greatest songs of the past four decades. Whether with Genesis, GTR or on his solo output, the man has been a giant of the prog-rock genre. His guitar style and range has been both innovative and inspirational and hes most definitely among the greats on the instrument, as you can tell by listening to Genesis classics like Firth Of Fifth, Suppers Ready or The Musical Box. His sense of drama and diversity was accentuated by a desire to try different ideas, something thats still true. Jesse Cook, Sunday, April 6, 7:30 p.m., at The Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Canadian Juno Award-winning guitarist hits the road this winter on tour in support of his latest album release The Blue Guitar Sessions. Like millions the world over, Cook got his hands on a copy of Adeles and played it excessively. But Cook saw something that few others did, something which 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, which was released earlier this year. Audiences will soon discover how well The Blue Guitar Sessions translates to live performances. The shows will include songs from more familiar work as well as material from the new 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. For the 47-year-old Toronto resident, who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer, this record is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. Indeed, he has been a leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995s Tempest. Among his many accolades, in 2008, he won the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazines prestigious Players Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia. Cook 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. The result is a captivating 14-track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones, which he had exhaustively searched for to replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer and engineer. Nobuyuki Tsujii, Wednesday, April 9, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Known for his refined and effortless playing, Nobuyuki Tsujiis spellbinding performances at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition introduced him to hundreds of thousands of new fans around the world and elevated him to superstar status in his home country of Japan. Blind since birth, Tsujiis achievements are even more remarkable because he has learned all of his music by ear. Despite this, he plays with unpretentious assurance, sensitivity and expressiveness. Experience this rising young star with brilliant musicianship when he returns to Clearwater for the first time since his sold-out performance in October 2010.Gulfport USA Dance Monday, April 28, 7 to 10:15 p.m., at Gulfport Casino, 5500 Shore Blvd., Gulfport.

PETERSBURG For the 20th year, the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County hosted the Cooperman-Bogue KidsFirst Awards program on March 20, at the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park. The event honored four outstanding social services professionals for their life-changing work with Pinellas County children and families. Over the last two decades, the Cooperman-Bogue KidsFirst Awards winners have personified dedication and compassion for kids. Eighty people with a wide range of job descriptions, skills and backgrounds have received this honor. Theyve passionately carried on the legacy of Attorney Leonard Cooperman and Judge Lincoln C. Bogue who joined other Pinellas County citizens in 1945 to create the Juvenile Welfare Board, believing all kids matter and investing in their futures. Each year, four individuals are chosen quarterly to be recognized for going above and beyond for Pinellas children and families. They are honored with a certificate and a $500 award check. At the annual Cooperman-Bogue KidsFirst Awards Luncheon each year, the four quarterly winners are honored in front of hundreds of guests and one lucky winner it chosen as the Annual Winner and presented a $2,000 award check. This year, the quarterly Cooperman-Bogue KidsFirst Awards winners are: Scott Smith, a housing system navigator with Personal Enrichment through Mental Health Services, working in partnership with families to help avoid homelessness and develop solid support systems so children grow up in stable homes. Lindsay Parete, truancy navigator with PEHMS, where she instills a sense of worth for all she serves, Parete helps children succeed in schools by working with families to overcome truancy.

The 17th annual Crawfish Festival will run Friday through Sunday, April 4-6, at Cajun Caf on the Bayou, 8101 Park Blvd. Thats right: Those wee critters that are considered Cajun comfort food are in season. No matter what specific term one might prefer crawfish, crawdads, crayfish this annual festival serves to celebrate the regional delicacy along with Cajun culture. There will be plenty of boiled crawfish as well as authentic Cajun food, live music and dancing and free dance lessons with Dwight Dupree.

According to the website of the Louisiana Crawfish Promotion and Research Board, in addition to wild-caught crawfish particularly from the Atchafalya Basin there are thousands of acres of crawfish ponds managed by farmers in the lower Gulf Coast Photo courtesy of J.B.S ZYDECOZOOJ.B.s ZydecoZoo performs at this years Crawfish Festival at Cajun Caf on the Bayou.regions that provide a consistent and readily available supply of fresh crawfish. Most crawfish are harvested between December and June, but March, April and May are the peak months when Louisiana supplies are greatest and quality is best. The board reports that the combined annual yield ranges from 120 million to 150 million pounds of crawfish, with the total economic contribution to the Louisiana economy exceeding $300 million annually. It is estimated that more than 7,000 people depend directly or indirectly on the crawfish industry in Louisiana. Crawfish are an excellent source of high-quality protein. They are low in calories, fat and saturated fat. According to the Louisiana Crawfish Promotion and Research Board, crawfish also are a good source of vitamin B12, niacin, iron, copper and selenium. Zydeco band lineupZydeco evolved in the bayou country of Louisiana in the 19th century, derived from Creole musical traditions. It combines tunes of French origin with elements of Caribbean music, blues and roots music. Some of todays zydeco artists embrace modern genre components, as well, such as soul, reggae, hip-hop and ska. Scheduled to perform at this years Crawfish Festival are J.B.s ZydecoZoo, Donna Angelle & the Zydeco Posse and Wayne Singleton & Same Ol 2 Step. Pianist John Babich J.B. was so enamored with the city of New Orleans and its musical heritage that he felt compelled to acquire an accordion and start playing zydeco shows in Tallahassee. After attending Florida State Universitys School of Music in the 1970s, Babich became a touring musician and played in several bands. He recorded five albums with Bill Wharton. In 2002, J.B.s ZydecoZoo was born, debuting with a concert at an American Legion Hall in Tallahassee. Our music is high energy, rockin, rhythmic zydeco in the vein of Beau Jocque, Clifton Chenier, C.J. Chenier, Rockin Dopsie and Stanley Dural Jr., Babich says in his bands biography. Also, my debut CD release J.B.s ZydecoZoo, contains 10 smokin original zydeco tunes. Rounding out the festival lineup is Tampa Bays own Ramblegrass Band, a bluegrass/jamgrass outfit featuring Bob Edwards on guitar, Mike Godwin on banjo, Phil Myers Jr. on mandolin and Jack Ray on standup bass. Born in 1951, Donna Angelles parents first noticed her interest in music when she was 8 according to her biography on Sonicbids. Encouraged by her high school music teacher, she went on to learn to play the clarinet, saxophone, viola, and flute. By the 1970s, Angelle had begun her professional music career playing keyboard for the artist Bobby Price. At the time, she was influenced by the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, and various artists who were making appearances on Soul Train and American Bandstand. After being injured in a serious car accident, Angelle spent several years away from music. When she returned, she showcased a variety of styles such as zydeco, oldie soul, and hip-hop. She met with Mike Lachney of Bad Weather Productions. Lach-Crawfish Festival ney, who produced several zydeco artists including John Delafose, Rosie Ledet, Pee Wee and the Boll Weevils, and Lady T. was impressed by Angelles soulful sound and signed her to his label. Her first record, Zydeco Soul, was released in 1995. It featured hits of the s and s with a touch of zydeco. Wayne Singleton is founder, lead vocalist and accordionist of the band Wayne Singleton & Same Ol 2 Step. According to a biography on his the bands website, Singleton was raised in Lewisburg, La., in a community centered in the area considered to be the birthplace of zydeco. He has been playing zydeco music since the age of 7. These days, Singleton writes most of his songs. He has mastered every instrument played in his band and has earned his status among the elite of the younger zydeco musicians. Over the years, he has had the opportunity to play with many of the legendary acts, such as Beau Jocque, Zydeco Force, Keith Frank, Chris Ardoin, Sean Ardoin and Andre Thierry.

Each year, Friends of the Island Parks Inc. hosts Island EarthDays, an event that serves to celebrate the countys scenic beauty and natural resources while generating funds and public awareness in support of these destinations. Friends of the Island Parks Inc. will present Island EarthDays 2014 Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13, at Honeymoon Island State Park, 1 Causeway Blvd. Festival hours will be Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is free with paid admission to the park. Park admission is $8 a vehicle with an eight-person limit per vehicle. For event information, visit www.islandearthdays.com Attendees can check out nature exhibits and wander around the many eco-friendly arts and crafts booths. There also will be guided nature trail walks through the island along with the new limitless playground and for the adventurous bungee jumping and rock wall climbing. Island EarthDays will include a childrens area with face-painting, lots of craft projects for kids, and live animals in the Osprey Village area. Both days will feature live entertainment. Festivalgoers will find plenty of food and beverage vendors and beer and wine will be available for purchase with proper identification. Tickets will be on sale both days for several valuable prizes with drawings on Sunday afternoon. Participants need not be present to win. Situated near the northern end of Floridas Gulf Coast barrier island chain, Honeymoon Island State Park boasts four miles of white sandy beaches. The Osprey Trail meanders through scenic pine Flatwoods. The island is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including shorebirds, gopher tortoises, ospreys, raccoons and diamondback rattlesnakes. Seasonal visitors, such as the great horned owl, nest at the park in late winter. Regular visitors to the 2,810-acre park spend time fishing for trout, redfish, pompano and shark; walking along nature trails through pine and mangrove forests; canoeing or kayaking in St. Joseph Sound; swimming, surfing and sunbathing on the beach; learning about the parks history and wildlife at the Rotary Centennial Nature Center, or just enjoying the outdoors with a picnic. Nearby Caladesi Island State Park is often included in rankings of the worlds best beaches. In February, Caladesi ranked No. 12 on the list of best U.S. beaches as part of TripAdvisors 2013 Travelers Choice awards. The annual event provides Friends of the Island Parks an opportunity to welcome new visitors to Honeymoon Island State Park and bringing new visitors to the area benefits the local economy. Honeymoon Island was the most visited park in the state in 2010 with more than 1 million visitors. In 2011, the park topped the list again, recording 1,089,588 visitors. In fact, this was the sixth year in a row Honeymoon Island State Park welcomed more visitors than any other state park. Combined, Honeymoon and Caladesi have had a direct economic impact on the local area of an estimated $71 million a year in recent years, according to the Friends of the Island Parks. This was assessed in terms of jobs, goods and services and accommodations. For event information, call 738-2903 or visit www.islandearthdays.com.

While on a camping trip in the remote region, youngest son Riley, sees mysterious lights in the night sky, which he is able to record on his hand held video camera.

The unexpected reunion abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order. Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area.Nymphomaniac: Volume IIGenre: Drama Cast: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgrd, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth and Jean-Marc Barr Director: Lars von Trier Not rated Nymphomaniac: Volume II picks up with the story of Joes adulthood, where her journey of selfdiscovery leads to darker complications.

TORRESLARGO The fate of the Missing Links Driving Range is uncertain. As of April 1, the front 2.4 acres of the property has been relabeled a commercial general future land use, a change that representatives of RaceTrac requested in order to build a gas station and convenience store along East Bay Drive. More than 1,500 customers and employees of the facility signed petitions against closing the facility. The miniature golf course, the golf school, pro golfing shop, batting cages and ice cream store made Missing Links too unique to replace with a gas station, protesters argued. This place means more to the city of Largo than any gas station could mean, said Bob Blair, an employee who helped lead the charge against closing it. Missing Links has become a staple of the community. Largo commissioners voted 5-1 to approve the last step in changing the future land use April 1. All but Commissioner Woody Brown agreed that the new land use would mean the property would match the other three corners, which are all designated commercial general. Even with the change, Missing Links could stay the way it is, staff confirmed. Either way, the owner is going to do whatever he chooses, Commissioner Harriet Crozier said. William Hancock owns the property itself and is a co-owner of the Missing Links business with Jim Smith. Smith said he feels caught in the middle, between loyal customers and his business partner. RaceTrac first approached Hancock about leasing the land. Smith said he can appreciate that the driving range is not the most profitable use for the property. Hes decided to make a business decision. I dont begrudge him one bit for doing that, Smith said. Id like to see it stay a golf facility. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESGolfers practice their swing at Missing Links Driving Range, which was rezoned April 1 to allow for a RaceTrac to be built. Residents protested that the facility, which includes a miniature golf course, a golf school, a pro golfing shop, batting cages and an ice cream store, is unique and should not be replaced with a gas station.Largo votes to fight the county on EMS funding Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .14A Health . . . . . . . . . .12-13A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .15A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .11A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .10A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Police arrest three in drug, fraudulent EBT investigation By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO After a yearlong undercover operation investigating illegal drug and EBT card sales at Sunshine Food Mart, Largo Special Operations detectives arrested three associates at the gas station and convenience store at 1595 Seminole Blvd. March 28. The Largo Police Department received multiple tips about the sale of narcotics and trafficking of Electronic Benefit Transfer, or EBT, cards at the business, which also is called SuperAM. The investigation began to address those concerns. Detectives reportedly learned that in order to purchase drugs or sell EBT benefits to the operators of the business, customers needed ST. PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays have announced a new collaboration with Bayfront Health that launched this week with the new Rays Fan for Life program. This season, Bayfront Health and the Rays have chosen to honor each baby born at the Bayfront Baby Place in St. Petersburg on March 31 Rays Opening Day with a certificate granting them four tickets to ALL future Rays home openers. A total of 12 newborns eight boys and four girls each received a gift package delivered by Rays players and team mascot, Raymond on April 1. Later in the season, the children and their parents will be invited to Tropicana Field for an on-field presentation inducting them into the Rays Fan for Life program. We are excited to enter into this agreement with a network as regionally focused as Bayfront Health, said Rays Senior Vice President Mark Fernandez. The Rays Fan for Life program specifically will help future generations and their families feel a part of the Rays community. In addition, each month, individual Bayfront Health employees will be honored during a pre-selected game as part of the new employee recognition program. The employees who participate will receive a private meet-andgreet with a Rays player, a gift package and will be highlighted in-game for their work as an outstanding member of the Bayfront Health community. On April 20 when the Rays take on the New York Yankees, 2,100 members of the Bayfront Health community have been invited to Tropicana Field for Bayfront Health Day.Rays target younger fan base Ibrahim SaraebJolly introduces bill to extend NFIP reform By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas Countys newest Congressman, U.S. Rep. David Jolly, is wasting no time getting down to business. Jolly introduced legislation March 26 that would extend relief from the high cost of flood insurance to businesses and owner-occupied second homes. Congresswoman Kathy Castor and Congressman Gus Bilirakus are co-sponsors of H.R.4313 the Flood Insurance Premium Parity Act, which would ensure fairness in premium rates for coverage for business properties and second homes under the National Flood Insurance Program, and for other purposes. Specifically, the Flood Insurance Premium Parity Act would: Ensure that commercial properties and second homes purchased after the enactment of Biggert-Waters have access to affordable flood insurance by repealing the requirement that they be automatically charged actuarially sound rates. Restore grandfathered rates for commercial properties and second homes. Apply to commercial properties and second homes the same formula for yearly rate increases received by residential properties. Jolly provided an update on his work in Washington, D.C., during a conference call March 27 facilitated by the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. Pinellas County voters in District 13 chose Jolly to finish out the term of former Rep. C.W. Bill Young during a March 11 special election. Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Jolly said his legislation is simple in concept, extending relief measures enacted 10 days ago for single-family residences and applying it to business property and owner-occupied second homes. Jolly described the measure as a baby step toward finding a solution to the problem of keeping the National Flood Insurance Program solvent and providing affordable insurance rates for property owners. He said the extended relief would apply only to second homes, such as those owned by snowbirds. There is one catch. If they lease it out they lose the relief, he said. And theres a limit.

Ethan FabacVIEWPOINTSTom GermondOl Fat Face dumb as the day is long. Page 10A. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The Largo Commission took the first step April 1 toward suing the county to obtain more EMS funding, rejecting its system-wide proposal, referred to as CARES 2. Commissioners minus Mayor Pat Gerard, who was absent directed staff to draft a resolution to initiate the conflict resolution process in accordance with chapter 164, the state law that dictates mediation between governmental entities prior to litigation. The resolution makes Largo the first to make an official move in response to the countys proposed Advance Life Support Contract. Before making the motion, Commissioner Harriet Crozier suggested that the city could wait until the next commission meeting to see what the other large recipients of county EMS funding might do. Do we want to give staff two weeks and wait to hear? Because obviously, theres not going to be any negotiations (with the county). Or do you want to just jump into the pot? she asked her fellow commissioners. Commissioner Jamie Robinson said that representatives from at least three of the municipalities were at the meeting. So, I think what theyre doing is waiting for us, he said, drawing laughter and applause from the audience, made up of mostly firefighters and supporters. If theyre going to wait for us, lets get on it and go.The commissioners had invited Bruce Moeller, the countys executive director of public safety services, to present the countys proposal and answer questions about it. Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis explained the departments response. The funding the county is offering in a five-year contract, which could be renewed for five more years, would result in a loss of $175,000 per year for the next three years, she said. Given the funding would be frozen for those years as well, the loss of inflation revenue would bring the total loss to an estimated $2 million.Over the remaining years of the contract, by the time we reach the end of the 10 years, we will have realized a $9 million shortfall in the city of Largo, Willis said. The county has proposed that two paramedic positions assigned to rescue units at Largos fire stations 41 and 42 stay in service for only 14 hours of a 24hour day. The proposal is designed to save money during the systems least busy time period between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m., Moeller explained. Calls do no occur at the same level throughout the day, he said.

According to organizers, the volunteers also took to the street to point out that ACA enrollment opportunities would continue for anyone who had begun the process online, but had not completed the application and for those in the months ahead who might lose their coverage because they had a child, were divorced or changed jobs and lost coverage.

4A Largo Leader, April 3, 2014Eighth annual Pawfest is this weekendIt would only apply to the second home not a third or fourth, he said. Jolly cautioned that it could take months before the legislation is passed. It could take a while to get it done, he said. Were working on it as hard as we can. He said people needed to continue to reach out to Congress to help them understand what he describes as a pocketbook issue. He said Congress finally passed relief for singlehomes after members understood the hardships flood insurance reform was causing. He said it was the same for business properties. It hits the pocketbooks for job creators and real estate. It affects property values and increases the cost of doing business, which is passed on to the customers, he said. Jolly believes that public pressure will help convince Congress to extend flood insurance relief. He said people should tell their stories so legislators can understand the hardship of unaffordable insurance premiums. Were keeping the pressure up on this, Jolly said. He said officials with the Federal Emergency Management were studying the Homeowner Insurance Affordability Act passed March 4 by the U.S. House and March 13 by the Senate. President Barack Obama signed the bill March 21. The bill aims to reverse massive increases in flood insurance premiums brought about with the implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012. It restores grandfathering. It repeals the requirement for an automatic rate hike when a home is sold or when an insurance policy lapses. It limits annual rate increases to 18 percent. It gives refunds to policyholders who bought pre-FIRM homes after July 6, 2012, and were charged higher premiums. Jolly said FEMA was taking its time to study the legislation to see how it applies. There are still some areas for interpretation, he said perhaps enough to include second homes in the existing bill. He pointed out that Craig Fugate, Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is from Florida and in our corner. He said Fugate was working to find a solution. He just needs Congress to work with him, Jolly said. Jolly recently met with Fugate to discuss legislation for a national catastrophic fund. Im waiting to introduce it until we can get it right, he said. Jolly plans to take his time in drafting the bill and ask for input from a lot of people.Committee appointmentsJolly said he is overwhelmingly pleased with his committee assignments. On March 25, he was appointed to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and House Veterans Affairs Committee. He also was appointed to the Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee and Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee of the full Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. While pleased to continue work for the countys veterans, he explained that getting on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee was so important to Pinellas County due to its influence on highway and roadway funding, as well as water resources and water quality. The subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment is responsible for beach nourishment. Were at ground zero for that (beach nourishment), he said. Jolly said he has been working on beach nourishment since the day he was elected. He talked about the pressing deadline of the contract for Treasure Island. We have to fix that, he said. The 50-year federal authorization for Treasure Island ends in 2019. Authorization for Long Key expires in 2030 and 2043 in Sand Key. In the past, federal funding has paid 60 percent of beach nourishment projects with the remaining 40 percent split between the county and state. Jolly said he has been working with the Chairman of the Transportation Committee on the beach nourishment issue and has made significant progress. He said his appointment to the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation subcommittee would allow him to protect funding for the local Coast Guard and perhaps expand its presence.Local officesJolly announced that he has opened one of three offices he plans to staff in Pinellas County. He is taking over the office used by Young on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, 9210 113th St. He plans to open additional offices in south county and north county in the near future. His goal is to ensure county residents can readily access congressional staff and constituent services. He plans to host an open house at the Seminole district office in the coming weeks. John David J.D. White is Jollys chief of staff. He will head the Seminole district office. White, a Florida native, was most recently the director of government affairs for WellCare Health Plans, one of the largest Medicare Advantage providers in Florida. He has more than 15 years of combined congressional and private sector experience. Nick Catroppo is deputy chief of staff and works out of the Washington, D.C., office. Catroppo most recently served as Jollys campaign manager was formerly a constituent services representative for U.S. Representative Richard Nugent, who represents Floridas District 11.

They were able to garner the trust of the suspects and began buying Spice and other synthetic cannabinoids in the second half of 2013. After establishing trust, the Special Operations unit started to sell traceable EBT cards to the business for 50 cents on the dollar. They obtained the cards with the help from Division of Public Assistance Fraud in the Florida Department of Financial Services. SuperAM management used the benefits to purchase merchandise to stock the shelves of the store. Also, family members and employees of the business used the cards for personal food purchases. The Largo Special Operations unit served a search warrant at the store at 11 a.m. March 28, assisted by Florida Department of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, the state Division of Insurance Fraud and city code enforcement. Police found both narcotics and purchased EBT cards. The business also was cited for numerous civil code violations. They arrested three people, charged with various felonies. Ibrahim Saraeb, 47, of Clearwater was charged with trafficking in counterfeit credit cards and two counts of possession and one count in the sale of a Schedule 1 drug as well as one count of being a principle to sale of a Schedule 1 substance. Amad Almadanali, 47, of Largo is charged with a scheme to defraud, two counts of both the possession of and sale of a Schedule 1 substance. Ali Saraeb-Perez, 25, who, according to Pinellas County Jail records, lives with Saraeb, was charged with a scheme to defraud. The investigation is still ongoing, and additional felony charges are pending, police reported. Amad Almadanali Ali Saraeb-Perez ARRESTS, from page 1A BILL, from page 1A MISSING LINKS, from page 1A Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAt left, Missing Links co-owner Jim Smith stands in facilitys miniature golf course and in the middle of the debate for its existence. Pictured above is the Missing Links entrance and ice cream shop and below is its grass golf practice area. Smith, 64, said hes been golfing his whole life. He was a two-time winner of the Florida State Senior Open and, before that, played in the 1978 U.S. Amateur and the 1986 U.S. Open. He opened the golfing business in 1987 with Hancock, whose family owned the land, Smith said. The timing was right. They modeled the family fun center after Storms Driving Range in Clearwater, which similarly offered many more attractions than the golfing range. We knew it would work. We studied their operation, Smith said. Now theres a Home Depot where that (driving range) used to be on Gulf-to-Bay. The business was self-sustaining, even after the bad economy hurt the golf industry. Missing Links offers a cheaper way to practice ones swing than a round of golf, Smith explained. The deal with RaceTrac has been in the works for at least six months. Even before the city voted, Smith said he couldnt be optimistic about the future of Missing Links. It was a good run. Twenty-seven years, he said. Smith, one of the professionals who offered private lessons at Missing Links, said he had been close to retirement anyway. Still, the potential closure of Missing Links has been real emotional. Its been the love of my life, he said, his eyes watering. Others were less conflicted on the issue. Andre Fecteau, a customer who led the petition drive, said he represented the will of the people and could have obtained thousands more signatures. Why do people come to Largo? Recreation, he said. This is the most universally hated and despised thing to come before the council ever, to change that driving range to a gas station. He urged the commissioners to purchase the land from Hancock and keep the facility as is. Michael Riso, another golf instructor, emphasized the environmental value of the land in its current land use designation as recreation/open space. We could use more green and less black, Riso said. Brown, running the meeting in Mayor Pat Gerards absence, was the sole vote against change. He said he was concerned that piecemeal changes to the future land use map at the request of businesses undermined its purpose. If we do that every time, whats the point of the plan? he asked. Blair said Missing Links was a reason for customers to drive to Largo, rather than just pass through it, stopping only to get gas and a quick Coke. It is a family recreation center, and if you take it away, what are they going to do? There are no other facilities like Missing Links, an all-in-one place, anywhere in this county, Blair said. Little League players used the batting cages during the summer. Those who came to play miniature golf and enjoy ice cream when they were younger now bring their own children. Weve had a lot of generations come and go, Smith said. The land use change doesnt affect the remaining 5.7 acres of the property at 1201 East Bay Drive, farther away from the main road. Smith said he didnt know what Hancock had planned, if anything. The land is crisscrossed with utility easements, particularly power lines, limiting its use. Hancock declined to comment on the future of the property after the commission vote. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The eighth annual Pawfest is shaping up to be one of the best fundraisers the Largo Kiwanis have had, said their president Bruce Blazej. The event is Saturday, April 5, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Largo Central Park, 101 Central Park Drive. Were excited. Were gearing up for everything, he said, explaining that the club will begin setting up in the park after their meeting on Friday. Were looking to have a great event. The free event is designed to be a family day for dogs and humans alike. It acts as the clubs largest fundraiser for the year, allowing the organization to support local students. This year, the local Pet Supermarket partnered with the club, joining Walker Ford and the Palms of Largo as a major sponsor of the event. Were very excited to have them join us, Blazej said. Currently, the Kiwanis Club of Largo/Mid-Pinellas sponsors Bringing Up Grades programs at Ponce de Leon, Ridgecrest and Mildred Helms elementary schools as well as a Key Club at Largo High School. The club is working to start K-Kid and Bringing Up Grades programs at Frontier Elementary School. This years Pawfest will go a long way to raising the needed funds, Blazej said. Were looking equal about what we did in 2012, which was one of our best years, he said, explaining that the club raised $8,000 before expenses. I think were already at that spot. New this year is a car show, adjacent to the Largo Fire Rescue truck display. Also joining the vendor booths is the Treasure Coast Swift Paws, a lurechasing company. We try to come up with something a little different every year, Blazej said. Among the drawings this year, which include four golf packages and donated gift baskets, is a painting by dog artist Brody the border collie, who Blazej met at Mutt Madness in Dunedin, where he auctioned off another piece of artwork. Brodys trainer and owner Lisa Morrissey of Hudson rescued Brody and began to teach him tricks to help him gain confidence. One of his best tricks, she soon discovered, was painting. (Lisa) had Brody paint a picture especially for us and had it framed, Blazej said. It comes with a certificate of paw-thenticity. To learn more about Brody, visit www.face book.com/BrodyTheBorderCollie. Usual favorites this year include K9 Murphy, whom the Kiwanis helped the Largo Police Department purchase, and demonstrations from the Upper Suncoast Dog Training Club, which has been a part of Pawfest since the beginning. The event will include dog rescues with adoptable dogs, bounce houses for children, hula-hoop contests, face painting by Clowns Galore and miniature train rides from the Largo Central Railroad. Also returning is the Veterinarian of the Year Awards. Blazej said he expected good attendance as usual this year, perhaps even more because of the car show, which the club has never done at a Pawfest before. For more information, call the city at 587-6740, ext. 5014. Photo by JIM LAYFIELDJezzie, a 4-year-old Sheltie from St. Petersburg, works the obstacle course at last years Pawfest.they are three times greater than at two in the morning.Willis, however, argued that while two of Largos rescue units were being taken out of service, rescue units that experience far fewer calls remain funded for the full 24 hours. The units that were selected for peak staffing they come out of service at 10 p.m., or are not in the system whatsoever seem to us to be arbitrary in nature, she said. To illustrate her point, Willis compared the call volume of a rescue unit at station 20, based in South Pasadena, and the one at station 23, based in St. Pete Beach. Using the CARES 2 model numbers, rescue 20 and rescue 23 take 508 and 400 calls, respectively, between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. By comparison, rescue 41 and 42 take 1,260 and 1,119 calls. The point was not to say that units in South Pasadena and St. Pete Beach didnt deserve the funding, Willis said. Im merely pointing out that we run more calls, our workload is much higher, yet were being taken out of service, and it seems arbitrary, she explained. County staff used the CARES 2 model to determine which units it could take out of service, while still maintaining a response time of 7 minutes and 30 seconds or less 90 percent of the time, as required by law. But the numbers used in the model predicted Largo responded to about 4,500 less calls than actually handled in 2013, Willis said. Further, the model does not take calls for fire service, which is the sole responsibility of the cities to fund, into account in its models. Calls for fires represent about 11 percent of the overall volume, however require a significant amount of firefighters over an extended time, Wills said. Weve talked a lot about how EMS and fire funding cant be comingled. But the very nature of this plan takes our rescues out of service and puts our paramedics on the fire apparatus. They are co-mingling the service, she said. Models that show how reduced personnel during night hours might actually play out leave the city with far fewer units should a fire and two medical calls happen within the same time period. Willis and her staff have discussed their concerns in person with county staff. Officially, the city sent a letter to the county March 5, asking for the rescue units at stations 41 and 42 be fully funded at three paramedics each for 24 hours. Additionally, Largo asked for the county to fund one paramedic each for squads 38 and 39, positions that have been eligible for county funds based on a 2011 resolution, but never funded. Finally, Largo also asked that the call volume handled by engine 40, which is responding to increased calls at the Safe Harbor Shelter facility in the last several months, be monitored for potential extra funding if needed. The countys response, sent in a letter March 20, refuted several of the citys claims and denied the city any additional funding. We all understand the county wants to cut. Thats a given. But youre going at it the wrong way. Youre not going to cut my service at night, Crozier said. We are spoiled in Pinellas, and we need to keep it going, and we need to figure out the right way to keep it going. Commissioner Curtis Holmes took it a step further, arguing that a governments primary objective was the health and safety of its residents. Saving a comparatively small percentage of the large county budget on EMS did not make sense, he said. I cant get my hands around why this is being done in the first place, he said. I question the wisdom of the county officials. Play UnpluggedLARGO The third annual Playing! Unplugged for children and families will be Saturday, April 26, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Largo Central Park, 101 Central Park Drive.

According to the report, the Piper PA-28 was damaged when it collided with power lines during a forced landing on the highway in Safety Harbor. The pilot, Jeffrey Bronken, 53, died at the scene, and the two passengers, the pilots 15-year-old daughter, Katherine Bronken, and her 15-year-old friend, Keyana Linbo, were seriously injured. Katherine later died on March 26. Linbo is reported to have improved to stable condition. According to preliminary information from the Federal Aviation Administration, the airplane was in radio and radar contact with air traffic control as it approached PIE (the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport,) the report said. The pilot subsequently reported a fuel emergency and the plane impacted power lines about six miles north of PIE. The wreckage came to rest upright, nosedown, oriented on a southeasterly heading on the highway beneath the power lines. All major components of the airplane were accounted for at the scene. The engine and cockpit area were crushed inward and the cabin roof had separated. The cabin roof, where the top of the cockpit door met the cabin, exhibited an impact mark consistent with a wire strike. The impact mark was a similar size to an approximate 1.25-inchthick aluminum power line that had separated during the impact, causing a power outage to the area. The aluminum power line had been located about 160 feet above the highway. The left main fuel tank remained intact during the crash, and FAA inspectors recovered only about 4 ounces of fuel from it, the report said. The right wing was undamaged with the exception of a partial separation of the right flap, and the right fuel tank was compromised at its fuel drain, the report said. During recovery, the FAA inspector observed some drops of fuel dripping from the right tank. The fuel selector was found positioned to the left main fuel tank. Jeffrey Bronken had a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land, and his most recent FAA second-class medical certificate was issued in October 2013, the report said. At that time, he had a total flight experience of 1,549 hours. According to a NTSB spokesman, final, official reports of crashes can take up to a year to complete. Photo by JAY RICHMONDInvestigators worked much of the day on March 22 collecting evidence and cleaning up the scene of fatal small airplane crash. Police beat Police beatMan killed in alcohol-related crashLARGO A 32-year-old man was killed in an alcohol-related vehicle crash on Starkey Road, just after midnight March 30, according to Largo police. A 2008 Chevy was headed south on Starkey Road at around 12:44 a.m., when it veered out of control just south of Ulmerton Road, sliding sideways into a culvert. The car went airborne and rolled at least once, partially ejecting driver Shannon Ollek. Ollek was pronounced dead at the scene. Ollek and his passenger, 55year-old Kelly Cronin, were not wearing their seatbelts. Police first reported Ollek as the passenger, and because alcohol was named as a factor in the crash, stated that charges were pending the outcome of the investigation. Since Ollek has been determined to be the driver, charges are no longer expected.Arrests made in child abuse caseCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a Clearwater man and his wife March 29 in connection with sexual battery of an 8-year-old female. James P. Millard, 29, was charged with two counts of sexual battery of a child less than 12 years old. Bond was set at $200,000. His wife, Jennifer Millard, 31, was charged with one count of neglect of a child. Her bond was set at $5,000. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies said the 8-year-old victim, who was known to the suspect at the time of the incidents, disclosed that the suspect sexually battered her on multiple occasions over the past two years. Deputies met with Mr. Millard March 29 and he reportedly admitted to sexually abusing the victim on two occasions. Deputies also met with Millards wife, who told them she was aware of the prior acts of sexual abuse and failed to report the incidents or protect the child from the sexual abuse. Three arrested for synthetic marijuanaCLEARWATER The owner of a local food mart, an employee and a customer were arrested March 25 after narcotics detectives found synthetic cannabinoids while serving a search warrant. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, an investigation revealed multiple violations of the sale of synthetic cannabinoids. The search warrant was executed at the High Point Food Mart located at 6201 150th Ave. N. in Clearwater about 10:55 a.m. Storeowner Nageswara Rao Chapalamadugu, 54, was arrested and charged with two counts of sale and possession of a controlled substance. Edward Earl Watkins, a store clerk, from Bradenton also was charged with two counts of sale and possession of a controlled substance. A customer, Kenneth Gene Clark, 50, of Clearwater, who had just purchased a package of the synthetic cannabinoids, was charged with possession of a controlled substance. In July 2012, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office began a campaign to notify various food marts, gas stations and retail establishments, warning them that it is illegal to sell or possess synthetic marijuana. Deputies have delivered about 634 pre-written letters into storeowners and clerks, warning them about the risks of synthetic marijuana, commonly referred to as spice or K2. The letter informed them that it is a third degree felony to possess or sell the product. Many storeowners voluntarily removed the products from their shelves. Others did not. If people do not want to do it voluntarily, we will serve search warrants and people will go to jail, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. According to narcotics detectives, the High Point Food Mart received eight warning letters to stop the sale of synthetic cannabinoids. Between the Jan. 29 and March 16, the store sold synthetic cannabinoids four times to undercover detectives and the products tested positive for the controlled substances JWH-11, XLR11, UR144 and AB Pinacca. An undercover detective made another purchase of the product before the search warrant was served on March 25. Detectives said the products were hidden out of the public view, behind the counter and under the pizza warmer. Some of the spice sold had cartoon characters on the product packaging and appeared to be marketed to children. High Point Elementary school is less than 1 mile from High Point Food Mart. During the sale of the synthetic cannabinoids, the products were sold as a grocery items and were taxed. At times, customers paid for the product using EBT cards, which are used by Food Stamp recipients and others on government assistance.Man injured when hit by car in SeminoleSEMINOLE A St. Petersburg man was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with serious injuries after a car hit him about 2:49 a.m. March 25 on Park Boulevard. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Dennis A. Fischer, 35, of St. Petersburg was attempting to cross Park Boulevard southbound when he stepped into the path of a 2005 Kia Sedona driven by Errol B. Converse, 49, of St. Petersburg. Converse was traveling eastbound on Park Boulevard in the center lane east of 83rd Street North. Converse and his passenger, Shangria W. Jones, 44, of Seminole were uninjured. No charges were filed.Storage facility fire under investigationPALM HARBOR Authorities are investigating a March 26 fire at a private storage facility in Palm Harbor that damaged property belonging to about 80 victims. The facility housed boats, RVs and cars. Detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Arson/Auto Theft Unit along with Palm Harbor Fire Rescue and the State Fire Marshall are involved in the investigation. Deputies responded to the fire at the Florida West RV Storage, 4470 Alt. U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor about 12:39 a.m. Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit are investigating a phone scam in which the caller claims to be a lieutenant with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Detectives say the subject contacts potential victims telling them they have an outstanding warrant for their arrest on a no-show for jury duty and attempts to collect as much as $800 in fines by instructing them to purchase prepaid cards and call him back with the information. Detectives warn residents to beware of the phone scam. They also remind residents that the Sheriffs Office would not call persons with outstanding warrants and would never require persons with outstanding warrants to pay a fine via a prepaid or green dot card, or via any other third party vendor. Three similar type incidents were reported over the weekend from March 21 through March 23. One of those was received by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. According to investigators, the caller identifies himself as Lieutenant John Roberts of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and informs the potential victim that a warrant has been issued for their arrest for a failure to appear for jury duty. Detectives say the caller then instructs the potential victim to purchase a prepaid debit card or green dot card to pay for the fines; he further tells them what store to buy it from and to call him back with the information. Detectives say he has also told potential victims that if they do not do as instructed he would come to their house to arrest them. According to investigators in each of the reported cases, the calls were received from the same local number, which is now disconnected. If you have been a victim of this crime, please contact the Economic Crimes Unit at 727-582-6200.Sheriffs Office warns of lieutenant scam James Millard Jennifer Millard

News briefsReclaimed water restrictions begunPinellas County reclaimed water seasonal restrictions began Tuesday, April 1, and continue through June 30. These restrictions limit reclaimed water irrigation during authorized hours to three days per week based on house number. Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Saturday Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday, Friday, and/or Sunday Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday, Friday, and/or Sunday Prohibited lawn irrigation between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Prohibited lawn irrigation on Monday Pinellas County Utilities customers are encouraged to follow these restrictions throughout the year to promote a healthy, drought-tolerant lawn with deep roots.

To verify your watering days, visit www.pinel lascounty.org/utilities/water-restrict.htm. Prepare now for hurricane seasonThe 2014 Atlantic hurricane season doesnt start until June 1. This is the prime time for residents to review their survival plans. Activities such as outdoor improvements and adding additional bracing to an attic are easier to accomplish before the summer heat sets in. Some key actions to take now include: Register for special needs evacuation assistance. Residents with certain qualifying medical conditions can apply for special assistance in the event of a hurricane evacuation. Call Pinellas County Emergency Management at 464-3800, Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County at 824-6900 or a local fire department to start the process. Residents needing more advanced medical assistance should work with their physicians to ensure planning can be in place before the storm winds begin to blow. Check the envelope. Are there shutters for the windows? Is the roof in good repair? Is there rot in soffits or fascia? How is the caulk in the windows and doors? These simple repairs and improvements can make a home more survivable and keep water out in driving rains. Tend to trees. This is an excellent time to check trees for broken, dead or diseased limbs and have them removed. If it has been a while since a tree was pruned, or if the pruning has to take place on high limbs, have a licensed tree trimmer provide an estimate and a plan of action. Trimming trees can be a dangerous activity, and improperly pruned trees tend to fare poorly in high wind situations. While these preparations are essential for hurricane season, they can help residents get ready for other hazards, including summer thunderstorms. For more information about how to prepare for hurricanes, visit www.pinellascounty.org/emergency to find evacuation levels, learn about storm dangers and discover how to create a disaster plan. To report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

Jesse P. Sawyer, 25, of Pinellas Park, was booked into the Pinellas County Jail about 4:17 p.m. on a FBI federal warrant for production of child pornography. The story began just before 11 p.m. March 27, when Pinellas Park police received word from the Troy, New York Police Department that Sawyer was at Calvary Chapel, 8900 U.S. 19. They were told that an active warrant was out for Sawyers arrest on child pornography charges. But, Troy police didnt tell Pinellas Park PD that the warrant was from the FBI, and Troy PD did not tell local officials that Sawyer was accused of raping little girls, said Sgt. Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park police public information officer. Pinellas Park police went to the location and made contact with Sawyer. Geissenberger said Sawyer was cooperative. He didnt try to run or give a false name. After making contact, officers found out that the warrant was actually from the FBI and began procedures to confirm the warrant via a computer. There was no response, Geissenberger said. We dont know why. When no response came back from the computer, officers called the FBI in Albany, N.Y. Geissenberger said the woman they talked to was unable to confirm the warrant. She told them she would make some calls and they should call her back, Geissenberger said. Eventually officers spoke to a special agent who had knowledge of the warrant, but he could not confirm it, as was required by policy. More than an hour passed from the time Pinellas Park PD made contact with Sawyer and officers still were unable to confirm the warrant. At 12:40 a.m., the shift commander, a lieutenant, made the decision to release him. At 12:46 a.m., computer confirmation of the warrant was received. But now, weve cut him lose, Geissenberger said. We immediately deploy resources. But, hes gone, in the wind and we cant find him. As the search for Sawyer continued, Pinellas Park PD began to take some heat on its Facebook page and in the media, especially in Troy where they describe the man as a monster, a sexual offender accused of raping little children, Geissenberger said. But, as it went down, Pinellas Park followed policy, as well as state and federal law. A verbal confirmation is not enough to confirm (the warrant), he said. A reasonable amount of time expired and based on the totality of circumstances, without having Troy, N.Y., give the full magnitude and severity of it being a sex crime of a child and not knowing it was multiple rapes of a child. In an ideal world, Troy PD would have contacted the FBI in Albany, who would have contacted the Tampa office, and local agents would have made the arrest with the assistance of Pinellas Park police, he said. As it was, Pinellas Park police arrested Sawyer around 2 p.m. about a mile from where they talked to him less than 14 hours earlier. Geissenberger said he had gone for a walk. Officers called his cellphone and he answered. They advised him the best thing to do would be to surrender. He told them his general area and they found him in a parking lot in the 8700 block of 49th Street N., Geissenberger said. He surrendered with no resistance. Pinellas Park police had prior contact with Sawyer in January, Geissenberger said. Officers found him sleeping in an abandoned building.

For more information on mobile collections including a full list of accepted items, instructions on how to transport chemicals and future dates, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/mobile.htm. At that time, there was no warrant for his arrest. Geissenberger said if Pinellas Park PD had been more fully informed the circumstances might have been different. The department will be reviewing its policies. But at the end of the day, he was apprehended. We followed policy. We deployed all our resources as soon as we understood the severity. The department did all it could. According to media reports from Troy, Sawyer took pictures of himself with his cell phone while sexually abusing three children one age 6 and two others age 5. The photos were then downloaded to a computer. Geissenberger said Sawyer would remain in the Pinellas County Jail without bond until the FBI extradites him to New York. Its on their timetable now, he said. Jesse P. Sawyer

At Comfort Keepers our goal is to create a team of caregivers who have the heart, patience, dedication, loyalty and love for nurturing others. This sounds like a perfect mix of attributes and ones that do exist in so many people. Caregiving can be one of the most difficult yet rewarding careers. To some it comes naturally, especially if you are a nurturer by nature. For others it may be a calling they are somewhat unsure of but feel they wish to pursue. A key and valued portion of the interviewing process at Comfort Keepers is to learn the desire of the potential candidate to join the Comfort Keepers Team as a caregiver. We are a team centered on making a difference in each clients home in order to provide the very best of care and understanding of the individual needs. We create a Plan of Care specific to each person and do our utmost to match a caregiver with each client. Making a good match is highly important in building trust between caregiver and client.

Our mission is to provide our caregivers with the knowledge most pertinent to caring for our seniors which in turn builds their confidence to offer the best possible care to our clients. Experience is not the #1 ingredient to being a good caregiver. It takes personality, empathy, reliability and most of all willingness to serve on both good and bad days. Caregivers often visit with me and share stories regarding their time spent with clients. It is quite touching to see in their eyes and hear in their voice that they are truly fulfilled in playing such an important role in the lives of others.

Industrial facility sellsLARGO Klein & Heuchan Inc. successfully represented the seller, MLE LLC in the sale of 12382 Starkey Road in Largo. This 13,704-square-foot dock high industrial facility provides six overhead doors and heavy power. With concrete construction and direct access from Starkey Road, the property provides exceptional visibility and signage. The sale price was $325,000. M.F. Bud Lytle of Klein & Heuchan Inc. represented the seller in this transaction. High quality industrial buildings with great visibility are difficult to find, said Mark Klein in a press release. Klein is president and CEO of Klein & Heuchan Inc. This building enabled the buyer to purchase a dock high concrete building on a major north/south roadway. With financing readily available, and prices fairly low, buyers are finding they can purchase their buildings for often less than they are paying in rent. We expect this to remain the case for some time.Clearwater apartments soldCLEARWATER Klein & Heuchan Inc. successfully represented the seller Vincent Dippolito in the sale of 2761 and 2759 Cypress Drive in Clearwater. The buyer was Johan Wilsson. The property consists of two triplex buildings on separate lots located near the Westfield Countryside Mall. The sale price was $355,000.

Leader, April 3, 201410A ViewpointsWhenever I hear somebody say that the lack of corporal punishment in the schools has led to the demise of public education, I immediately think about Ol Fat Face. Mr. B was an assistant principal in my junior high school back in the late s. He was about 6 feet tall and had a blimp of a belly. On hot spring days, Ol Fat Faces white shirts, which he wore every day, were stained with perspiration around the armpits. Ive written about Ol Fat Face before. Guess you can say he left an impression on me, but more so on other students, especially their rear ends. Students who misbehaved routinely were summoned to Ol Fat Faces office for discipline. He wielded a large paddle and swung it freely, too. So did the shop teacher and almost all the physical education teachers. To this day, I dont know who was the hellion who broke a bottle of cologne in the gym showers. Since nobody confessed, my eighth grade PE teacher decided to give licks to every kid in the locker room that day. Some of us, sly rascals that we were, went from row to row in the locker room to avoid the sting of the paddle, snickering all the way. Somehow, we escaped. Two days later, Coach R apologized to the entire class, saying he had made a poor choice to discipline all the students instead of just the culprit. Apparently, school phones had rang off the hook, and administrators had to do some damage control to appease angry parents whose kids were paddled. Despite that incident, most of the students got along with Coach R. We didnt give him a nickname, and he didnt smell, either. But I could write a book about Ol Fat Face. One afternoon in the lunchroom, my friend, Timmy, a big kid, put his hands around my neck, pretending to strangle me. Ol Fat Face must have missed a meal that day. He was in a bad mood and was on to Timmy like ugly on an ape. Gesturing with one finger, Ol Fat Face signaled to Timmy to follow him out of the cafeteria. I spent the next hour worried what Ol Fat Face was going to do to Timmy and what Timmy was going to do to me for not telling Ol Fat Face that Timmy was just horsing around, that he didnt hurt me. Finally, Timmy entered the classroom, wearing a poker face. He sat down next to me, looking straight ahead. When the teacher turned to write something on the blackboard, Timmy put his hands around my neck again, giggling. The three licks from the paddlewielding assistant principal had not fazed him. In fact some students competed to see who could get the most licks before they graduated from ninth grade. Not me. I was a small kid, and I had about as much meat on my rear as a worms. So you can imagine my fear and anxiety when I was summoned to the administration building one afternoon to see Ol Fat Face. One look at his secretarys angry eyes told me I was in trouble. Mr. B wants to see you in his office, right now. Now I lay me down to sleep. As I walked into the office, two oversized feet quickly slid off the desk and I was gazing into the bulging dark eyes of Ol Fat Face. He ordered me to sit down and handed me a piece of paper that my school bus driver had given him. Some student had scribbled profanity about me on the paper. Tommy Germond is a skinny, snot-nosed little X#$@!, it said. Did you write this? Ol Fat Face asked, his voice rising rapidly. Why would I call myself a skinny, snotnosed little blanklety, blank? Dumb as the day is long, I thought. He stared at me. Well, if you didnt, who did? I dont know, sir. It took him several seconds to digest my testimony. You better not be lying, and youd better tell me if you find out who wrote this, he said, dismissing me. Yes, sir. Found my way out in a hurry, perspiring more than Ol Fat Face. Never told my parents about the incident. Had Ol Fat Face paddled me for something I didnt do, Im not sure how my dad would have reacted, but a line from Chief Dan George in the movie The Outlaw Josey Wales would probably be on point: Hell is coming to breakfast. My revenge? I disfigured Ol Fat Faces picture in my yearbook. Thinking back on that era, the state of education then and today, legislators attempts to raise academic standards, maintain discipline in the classroom and make schools safer for teachers and students, I dont know what the answers are. Im just glad Ol Fat Face didnt carry a gun.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

As part of your weekly routine you pick the children up on Friday night for bonding, watching movies, reading bedtime stories and return them to their parents Sunday afternoon. One evening as you prepare for the upcoming week, returning phone calls and planning time for work, with friends or for hobbies, there is a knock on the door. You open the door, and to your surprise, there stand several police officers with your grandchildren, niece, nephew or the neighbors children. One of the officers mentioned that if you do not take all of the children in your home at that moment, they would be placed in foster care. This can have tragic results, such as losing contact with the children, the siblings becoming separated from each other for months or even years before their biological parents regain custody. Instantly, the decision is made to take the children in, thus starting your life of parenting for the second time around. Caregivers throughout the United States have always cared for children through formal and informal arrangements. Family caregiving roles have been in existence for centuries. According to aarp.org, there is an estimated 2.4 million caregivers in the United States. Approximately 1.6 million are grandparents and an average of 896,000 other caregivers such as aunt, uncle, older siblings and godparent. In addition, grandfacts.org mentioned that there is an estimated 25 million people who have the responsibility of caring for a loved one with little or no support or compensation. When children initially come into the care of a relative, most are not aware of the vast amount of community resource services and other supports that are available to them. Kinship Services Network, a program of The Childrens Home provides, services in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties. The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County, The Childrens Board of Hillsborough County, United Way of Suncoast, Eckerd Community Alternatives, Inc. and The Childrens Bureau fund this program. Kinship Services Network offers in-home supportive case management to help families navigate and link to the services they need, such as counseling, legal assistance, financial management, debt counseling and public benefits, respite care and emotional support. KSN offers monthly support groups and family activities throughout the county for both caregivers and the children in their care. Through educational sessions, hands on activities, food and fun, support groups provide the opportunity for a caregiver to meet other caregivers who are in similar situations. Kinship can connect caregivers to much needed programs and supports.

Thats odd, because the series has aired three episodes and theyre all about victims of prosecutorial abuse. So far, nobodys really guilty. The second episode features a woman who never spent a night on death row. From what Ive seen, they should have named the series, narrated by anti-death-penalty activist Susan Sarandon, Death Row Propaganda. Episode two, the website says, is about Gloria Killian, who was charged with capital murder, found guilty of murder in the first degree, and sent to prison in 1986. Thats misleading. Killian wasnt tried for capital murder. After she was convicted for her role in a 1981 home invasion murder in Sacramento, Calif., she was sentenced to 32 years to life. Later, a federal court overturned her conviction because prosecutors had withheld evidence. Why make an episode for a death row series about a woman not sentenced to death? She was threatened with the death penalty, executive producer Brad Hebert replied. Any guilty people in your series? Three out of eight episodes, Hebert answered. On further questioning, he posited that his staff members are torn on the guilt of one, although they agree he did not get a fair trial. Another was convicted in military court after he was acquitted in civilian court. Only Nathan Dunlap, Colorados Chuck E. Cheese killer, who shot and killed four workers, is presented as guilty and remorseless, if severely bipolar. But wait; Gov. John Hickenlooper postponed Dunlaps execution indefinitely. Director Steve Rivo thinks Dunlap got a fair trial. He added that even death penalty supporters agree capital punishment is not really a deterrent. I dont agree. It deterred Clarence Ray Allen, the most recent inmate executed in California in 2006. Allen was in prison for the murder of his sons 17-year-old girlfriend when he ordered the death of eight witnesses. Three people died. He got the death penalty, and now Allen cannot reoffend. The series first episode is about an intern who dug up evidence that exonerated South Carolinas Edward Lee Elmore. New York Law School professor Robert Blecker, a supporter of capital punishment, thought it was a solid episode, as Elmore is an example of someone who never should have been condemned to death. The problem is that producers are stuck in a narrative: Intern or astronauts mother or priest finds evidence that prevents the execution of an innocent inmate. Theres another narrative and in my experience, its more prevalent: Convicted killer finds easily duped advocates who ignore evidence and smear prosecutors. When convicted rapist/murderer Michael Morales was scheduled for execution in 2006, his attorneys released a statement in which a witness accused prosecutors of coercing her to give false testimony at trial. The affidavit turned out to be a forgery. Still, Morales lawyers won. They got a federal judge to stay his execution in a constitutional challenge to Californias lethal-injection protocol. There hasnt been an execution in the state since. There may be no safer place for a convicted killer than on Californias death row. Thats Californias real death row story.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.A couple of days ago I got to wondering about dandruff. Whatever happened to it? When I was a boy during the McKinley administration you couldnt open a newspaper or magazine without being warned about dandruff. If you were on a date with a girl and she noticed the flecks of dandruff on your shoulders, you were finished. It didnt matter that dandruff was not contagious and did not signify your membership in the Communist Party or AMORC (Ancient Mystic Order of the Rosy Cross). If you had dandruff, you were a slob. Or so said the drug companies that sold an alleged cure for dandruff. Even back then, pharmaceutical firms bent the truth, and they havent stopped since. Im probably mistaken in thinking that dandruff has disappeared or faded from our civilization. After all, dandruff is nothing more than dead skin cells. My exhaustive research reveals that about half a million cells are released each day from our scalps, and even more if you live in Phoenix or Reno and other places where the air is abnormally dry. Regular shampooing can reduce the amount of dandruff, so modern Americans arent nearly as worried about it as they used to be. Instead, the drug companies run frightening advertisements about other maladies, such as yellow teeth. Remember the old jingle, Youll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent.? What a crock. Today everyone knows you cant remove teeth stains with toothpaste. Youve got to find a dental specialist with a Ph.D., licensed to practice the arcane art of teeth whitening. Only after a series of pricey visits can you step back into polite society, confident that your smile is just as blindingwhite as it should be. Getting back to dandruff: Is there any connection between dandruff and dander? Are you sure you know what dander is? I know that dogs and other pets tend to shed dander, which is mostly discarded skin cells, same as dandruff. Dander can cause breathing problems and other allergic reactions. If someone becomes angry, people will say Look out hes got his dander up. Does this mean that if a scientist took air samples of someone experiencing road rage, his/her dander index would be higher than that of a person quietly meditating in a Hooters restaurant? A person who gets his or her dander up also may be accused of having a conniption, or a conniption fit. Its not clear where the word conniption came from. Many English words have no clear origin. One of them is funky. Next time you hear someone refer to funky music or funky clothing, ask him to precisely define funky. Hell probably try to give you examples, but that really wont do it. If he succeeds in giving you a definition of funky, ask someone else to do the same thing. I guarantee you the two definitions wont agree. Can you define crud? Sure you can. Its almost any disgusting material, a built-up layer of filth, dirt or slime. The term crud is sometimes applied to a person. What a crud that guy turned out to be. The word probably wasnt used, or even known, before the 1940s or thereabouts. Early records indicate World War II servicemen gave the name crud to social diseases. Another interesting, vague word is jiffy. Exactly how long is a jiffy? Weve all used that expression at times. Ill be back in a jiffy. I dont know the time limits of a jiffy, but engineers and physicists seem to. They have assigned specific measurements, such as how long it takes for an electron or light wave to travel through a vacuum tube, or between an elephants tail and its trunk. Stuff like that. A similarly undefined measurement of time is a trice. Is a jiffy longer or shorter than a trice? As her beau impatiently waited in his hansom, Amanda got dressed in a trice and flew out the door. When is the last time you used the expression in a trice? Never? Me, too. Thats enough word play for the day. I appreciate your following me through the tangled wilds of dandruff, dander, conniptions, funky, crud, jiffy and trice. I realize that most readers would have preferred that I write my thoughts on missing Malaysian airliner 370. I considered doing that, but then I realized that every worthwhile fact or idea about that plane has already been covered. In triplicate and ad nauseam.

Behar will rotate to a new assignment at the end of the school year. According to Sgt. Brian Unmisig, spokesperson for the PPPD, this rotation is part of a department protocol that rotates officers after five years on one specialized assignment. In certain circumstances, these assignments can be extended for an extra year, and Behar has already has his SRO assignment extended one year. [The decision] goes back to our rotation policy in place, Unmisig said. To extend [Behar] again would have been against our normal procedures and policies. In Keep Officer Behar, a Facebook group created by his supporters, Behar broke the news that he wont be returning to PPHS next year. This news has me disappointed, but I am a loyal employee to my agency and respect (Chief Dorene Thomas) decision. I am asking all of you to do the same, he wrote. This minor setback will not stop me from achieving my goal. My plan is to take my knowledge and experience and move forward into another position. I assure all of you, this will not be the last you hear of me. The Marine Corps has taught me to be a leader and make positive changes that would benefit everyone. I transformed the school into a positive and safe learning environment for all of you. Behar began his career working for the New York City Police Department from 2000 to 2004. There he also took on the role of SRO. When he relocated to New Port Richey and took a job with the PPPD, he indicated that hed like to continue his work as an SRO in Pinellas Park. In 2008, he became SRO at Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School. The moment I stepped foot in the door I knew my journey would be a challenging one, Behar wrote in the Facebook group. As the take-charge type [of] person, I jumped right in and set the tone. In doing so, I earned respect from students and staff. Once the respect was earned, things began to fall into place. The next year, he moved to the high school. While he focused on securing the safety of all students and faculty on campus, Behar also counseled students and spearheaded a variety of events, including the 9/11 memorial ceremony and drivers safety courses. [These] past six years has been the best and most rewarding time a police officer would encounter, Behar wrote. Behars supporters have accepted Chief Thomas decision but are sad to see him go. PPHS will never be the same without you, wrote student Kaitlynn Burroughs. I first met you at Morgan and knew right away how passionate you were for your job. You didnt just work day to day; you made an effort to connect with everyone and actually show that someone does care about us. Elise Crepeau, whose daughter attends PPHS and who spearheaded the effort to keep Behar at the high school last fall, wrote in the group, Harold, you are the best and only one for that position right now. The kids of PPHS will be the ones to suffer without your presence Continue to do what you do and be the man that you are and you will succeed in any position. Much love and respect.

Saint Pauls makes quilts for orphansCLEARWATER Last year, Saint Pauls School students participated in the St. Peters Love Quilt Global World Awareness Project. This project provides handmade quilts to orphans in South Africa. Each quilt incorporates art squares filled with messages of love drawn by children. The process of making the art squares and quilts helps teach the importance of compassion. The quilts are gifts of love, warmth, and support to children in need. Marcie Berthold, Saint Pauls art teacher; and Marilyn Swan, music teacher, teamed up to introduce this project to Saint Pauls students in the fall of 2011. Since then the students have continued to create beautiful messages and art that will be given to special South African orphans. On March 15, at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter in St. Petersburg, the art squares that the students created last year were on display in the finished quilt. The exhibit included a presentation on the quilts and the history of the project. The Saint Pauls quilts will be given to the orphan children in South Africa this coming summer. Teachers are already scheduling for students to create more squares for the next quilt they will send to Africa. Eckerd College receives Luce grantST.

Four Pinellas cities recognized as Healthy Weight ChampionsThe Florida Department of Health recently recognized 37 communities four of them in Pinellas County as Healthy Weight Community Champions. The cities of Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg will be honored with certificates signed by State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health John A. Armstrong, MD, FACS. The certificates will be presented at public meetings with personalized Healthy Weight graphics that can be used in city documents and promotional items. A full list of the Champion Communities and best practices are at www.HealthiestWeightFL.com. Between November 2013 and February 2014, local governments were invited to submit best practice policies they have implemented to promote physical activity and improve nutrition in their jurisdictions. These best practice policies are exemplified by the Healthy Weight Community Champions. This is a brief selection of the best practices submitted by cities in Pinellas: Some of Clearwaters bike and walking trails lead to produce stands, supermarkets or farmers markets, including its Wednesday Farmers Market downtown. Largos free Playing Unplugged regional event at Largo Central Park provides 10 play spaces for families to explore, build and create. Pinellas Parks Community Garden offers raised garden boxes to residents for a minimal fee as a way to make fresh produce easier to grow. St. Petersburg has 35 miles of trails for recreation and it has markedly improved the time required to repair sidewalks and trails Efforts to improve health are often most effective at the local level and the department wants to recognize the outstanding progress made by these communities to promote healthy weight, Armstrong said in a press release. The commitment of these municipalities and counties affect nearly 9.4 million Floridians and help further statewide collaborative efforts to make Florida the healthiest state in the nation. The Community Champions program is part of the departments Healthiest Weight Florida initiative. Healthiest Weight Florida is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, local governments, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, schools, faith-based organizations and entire communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living.

NOTES, from page 11ARaising awarenessHer sons brain tumor diagnosis inspires a local mom to organize a Sept. 13 walk for childhood awareness By TIFFANY RAZZANOOne evening last October, while Ethan Fabac shopped at a local Publix supermarket with his family, all he saw was pink. Pink balloons. Pink banners. Pink labels on grocery items. It was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; its hard to go anywhere without being overwhelmed by pink in October. The 10-year-old asked his mother why there was so much visible support for breast cancer but none for childhood cancer awareness. The month prior, doctors had discovered a tumor on his brain stem, and at the time of the shopping trip, Ethan was only a month into 35 rounds of radiation treatment. His mother, Natalie Fabac, didnt have an answer for him. But when she went home and did some research, she learned that September had been National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. And I had no idea, she said. And I had a child just diagnosed with cancer. So think of all the people out there who dont know about it. So she decided to do something. This fall, shes teaming up with Illinois-based AshleyCan Pediatric Cancer Foundation to plan a Sept. 13 walk to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer, the leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States. That night made me realize that I had to do something to support my son, Natalie said. Theres a lot of children with cancer and you just dont know it. These kids need to know they have the support. Now shes on the hunt for local businesses to sponsor what she hopes will become an annual event.A mother knows It all started with a headache and a trip to the emergency room last August. Doctors didnt find anything major wrong with Ethan, though, and sent him home. Weeks later, he had another bad headache, which led to another ER visit. Both times he was misdiagnosed and sent home, Natalie said. But a mother knows her son best. During his third emergency room visit, she insisted Ethan have an MRI. She had researched brain tumors and had a gut feeling that something wasnt right with her son. They discovered a tumor, a Grade II Ependymoma, growing on his brain stem. He was diagnosed on Sept. 3 and was in surgery at All Childrens Hospital by the next day. After I found out I had to have surgery, I was super scared, Ethan said. But then they told me I would be asleep for it and I felt better about it. Hes so tough, Natalie said. Hes stayed stronger than his Mommy through all of this.TreatmentAfter surgery, the radiation treatments began. Several times a week, Natalie would take Ethan to Tampa for treatments, worrying the whole time about whether the tumor would grow back. But what Ethan remembers the most from these trips is the snarling rush hour traffic. We had to drive so far for it, he said. And the traffic was so bad. It took forever to get there and to get home. Natalie considered entering him into clinical trials, but backed out when she learned they werent usually effective on Ethans type of cancer. At the time, he was entering fifth grade at Seminole Elementary School. Following surgery, he had to be homeschooled. But he made principals list, Natalie said. And since going back in January, he hasnt missed a single day of school. Friends visited him at home, and they distracted him with the things 10-year-old boys like to do: playing video games, fishing. In fact, grabbing a rod and reel and heading to local docks with friends and family became his favorite pastime. [Fishing] started to click for me, he said. I just started catching a lot of things. And he likes to show off his battle wound a scar that begins at the nape of his neck and travels upwards several inches. Physically hes doing pretty well now, Natalie said. But he needs to have his brain scanned every three months. We have to live month to month with the scans for the next five years, she said. I have to keep an eye on him. Im always on edge. Every headache becomes something more.AshleyCan FoundationThroughout Ethans illness, social media has been a life support for Natalie. In various online forums and Facebook groups, shes met other moms with children battling cancer around the country, many with the exact same cancer Ethan had. One of the women she met was Maureen Montgomery, whose daughter, Ashley Montgomery, also was diagnosed with Ependymoma. The Montgomery family lives in Illinois, about 50 miles south of Chicago. In 2001, when Ashley was 10, doctors discovered a tumor growing on Ashleys brain stem. They did everything right: surgery, radiation, brain scans every three months, then every six months, and as Ashley got older, just once a year. Ashley was cancer-free for nearly seven years, when they discovered the tumor had grown back. She was 16, just months shy of turning 17, and the doctors were surprised it had returned. This time around they treated it even more aggressively, Maureen said, but there was always the chance that the treatment itself could kill her daughter. And much like Natalie, Maureen didnt know that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and that the cause has adopted the color gold, much like breast cancer uses pink to rally support. When she learned this, she wanted to do more. In 2009, Maureen formed the AshleyCan Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The organization held its first fundraiser, a 5K race, in 2011. All of the proceeds go to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, the world leader in childrens cancer research. Ashley, today 23, is vice president of the foundation, frequently speaks at childhood cancer awareness events and is attending college. Though Ashley is cancer free now, the family is still determined to help the cause. Were trying to make even a little bit of a difference so no other family has to go through what we went through, Maureen said. And now shes branching out to other states. Childhood cancer has no state lines; it has no boundaries, she said. Natalies Seminole event is the first out-of-state event Maureen is helping to organize. The Sept. 13 walk will coincide with the Illinois event and National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day.Getting organizedThough shes overwhelmed by the scope of what shes trying to accomplish, Natalie is determined. Ive never done anything like this before, she said. But we need something like this in Seminole. We need to raise money for [childhood cancer] research and awareness of the need for funding. She added, I wish we didnt have to be part of something like this. But we need to raise awareness for our community. Shes already booked the citys Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex for the Sept. 13 walk. And through social media, shes found some help locally. Jamie Smitte, whose father succumbed to cancer two years ago and founded Quilts of Hope, which makes quilts for children with cancer, has offered her assistance. Both she and Maureen have been amazing, Natalie said. Theyve been absolutely wonderful. Now shes seeking local business sponsors to step up and support their cause shes been knocking on doors and making cold calls as well as volunteers for the day of the race. Were hoping its a huge event, she said. Were just hoping we can pull it off. For more information about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, email Natalie at prayersforethan@live.com.

As he recovers, his mother, Natalie Fabac, is inspired to organize a Sept. 13 walk to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

Liz Lee 727-422-5818Beautiful Belleair Vistas2940 West Bay Drive #201, Belleair Bluffs040314 OPEN HOUSESunday, April 6 1-4pm Columnist discusses possibilities for how dolphins choose matesI know a handsome heterosexual who is 56 and never been married. He dates enthusiastically but has never taken the big leap. I do not have to point out how unusual he is. Humans are passionate bonders. We console ourselves that love is as perennial as the grass but nonetheless develop very strong preferences for particular people. Yet, when animals behave the same way, we simply say they are unsentimentally consorting temporarily or mate guarding. Last month in heavy fog, Capt. John Heidemann and I were escorted at sea by three local bottlenose dolphins, bonded bull pair BB and DD2 and their current companion local lady Slightwin. They swam sleepily beside us as our research boat purred through the fog. I love it when dolphins do that. It is rare. Our local dolphins are up and doing. They have no more time to drowsily escort boats than prolific people have to hang out. The dolphins groggy nearness let me chip away at my unending curiosity about them. It added a layer of admiration on my view of dolphin echolocation, which continues to function flawlessly in weather conditions like fog that render the primary human sense of vision quite inadequate. It also pointed out that big bull BB is escorting lady Slightwin. Like before. One exquisite turquoise day this week, we saw the three of them again. They slowly cruised under a neat little bridge and commenced, in that curious dolphin way, to meander diagonally across a broad bay. Midway, a tiny black body covered with white dots leapt spectacularly into their midst. It was Sticks calf Twig, barely six months old. Stick hunted in the distance, her mothering skills unimproved. Her tiny Twig amuses itself as best it can, playing with floating flotsam and passing boats more often than do other calves its age. BB and DD2 know Stick well. It is not normal for bottlenose babies to be black and covered with white dots (and we wish Sticks little sprout the best of luck). But Twig is probably not contagious. Yet, the BB trio ran away! Actually, their flight created an arrowhead pattern of waves, revealing that Slightwin sprinted away at top speed. The bulls followed her. They sped into a distant cove. Slightwin loitered at its entrance, swam briefly around its interior, returned to the entrance and left. Both bulls did what she did. But when there are two bulls around a female, one is usually the escort and the other stays peripheral to the pair. BB was the escort. He followed her more closely, allowing less space to grow between them. Periodically, though, he distanced himself to find food a bull has to eat and was sprinting after a snack when she left the cove. He hastily returned to her side. BB has hovered around Slightwin like this twice before. It is more than simply staying with a fertile female. From fall 2010 through spring 2011, BB jockeyed between her, rebuffing the stiff rivalry provided by local bull N. Dolphin Watch readers may remember the January 2011 story about dolphin behavior that resembled football; that was one of many fights over Slightwin. That time, Slightwin was definitely fertile and pregnant by June. Dolphins are pregnant for a year. So the following spring of 2012, when BB swam with Slightwin for two months, she was heavily pregnant. If your job is being a wild bull evolutionarily selected to sow your seeds widely, why waste precious spring rite time escorting a pregnant female? Slightwins June calf did not survive. She left the study area for six months, returning that December. BB was soon at her side but only briefly, either ousted by her succession of interested bulls or her choice. One of her choices might have been young bull PC. I do not know if she thought he was cute. But in his charming company, she gave the greatest aerobatic exposition I have seen any dolphin do anyPhoto by ANN WEAVERNo one knows how much bottlenose dolphins express female choice for mates. But one December day, in the company of a young bull, local lady Slightwin gave the greatest aerobatic exposition I have seen by any dolphin anywhere in the world.where in the world. Interestingly, she gave her exposition in the very same cove she rushed into today. The following spring of 2013 BB was again at her side, this time for four months. That was understandable. She was not pregnant. But that could have changed. And now that BBs escort services are apparent again this spring of 2014, I really wonder. Many moons ago, Dolphin Watch made the heretical suggestion that local dolphins may not live up to the species reputation of rampant promiscuity. After all, twice bull N has escorted local lady Split for months. Similarly, if we see lady Osiris, we see bull Midface. Bull Schnoz has escorted lady Split repeatedly. Now the pattern has surfaced between BB and Slightwin. Consorting and mate guarding have to be worked out for bottlenose dolphins. But ultimately we may need different terms for that bull behavior out there, maybe like that handsome heterosexual who is 56 and never been married.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and years of preparation. Jonathan Rudich, 17, of Clearwater has been doing all that and is determined to give an Olympic berth a shot in windsurfing. Rudich trains at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center. He is one of two members of the Sperry Top-Sider Windsurfing U.S. Sailing team in the RS:X class. To get there he had to compete in an International Sailing Federation World Cup event in Miami. It was there he won his spot on the U.S. team. I was one of the two top in a qualifying event last January and I made the team from that, he said. It means that I will get support from the sponsor, have access to physical therapists and other benefits. Just because hes on the team doesnt mean the work stops. In fact Rudich has to continue to qualify, and if he doesnt, he loses his spot on the team. There is a qualifying event every year, he said. So if I want to continue to get the support Im getting now I have to continue to qualify and there are two more years of that before the next summer games in Rio De Janiero in 2016. Even getting this far has been a dream for Rudich. Sailing is in his blood. Both his father and his grandfather were sailors. He fell in love with windsurfing when he was 13, quite by accident. I started windsurfing at a summer camp at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center, he said. It was something I never did before but after a week I knew I wanted to continue into it. Every time out is a new experience. Each time is different; it is never the same. The winds change; the tide changes. You get a sense of freedom. Coach Britt Viehman, who also ran a youth sailing team out of the Clearwater Center, ran that first camp. I joined the team the following fall and through it I was able to improve my skills and eventually partake in competitions, he said. Rudich is now in the middle of what is known in the sailing community as a campaign. A campaign is the four-year period between Olympics during which sailors compete nationally and internationally to earn a spot on the nations Olympic team. Rudich has been all over the world during this campaign. In the last year I have been to many countries either training or competing, he said. I trained in the Netherlands Antilles, and in Spain. And I competed in the RS:X European Windsurfing championships in Brest, France. I finished that competition as the second overall American. Coming up this year Rudich will participate in a competition in Turkey and another in Rio, site of the next Olympics. He describes that competition as a sort of practice Olympics. Along for the ride are Rudichs parents. His mother, Harriet, said she couldnt be more proud of what her son has accomplished. I never imagined when I gave birth to him 17 years ago that he would be in the place where he is right now, she said. For me this is a huge surprise and it is a source of pride because it was so far from anything I ever grew up with. Harriet Rudich said while growing up in Queens in New York City her family was not into sports at all. She said nobody played or watched sports in her household; sports of any kind, let alone sailing she said. I knew nothing about sailing, I grew up on the streets and subways of New York, she said. This is very surprising and exciting, it is overwhelming and awe inspiring. Harriet said the challenge for the family now is to find the means to make her sons dream come true. Were going to try to support him as much as we can and try to get sponsors to help, she said. He cant do this without help. You plan for college but not this; hopefully hell get there through grants and sponsors and whatever is out there. Harriet said she isnt worried about her son as he travels the world because the sailing community seems to look after themselves. It is a tight-knit community and people are very accommodating, she said. When he travels he always has a place to stay, a family will always take him in. The windsurfing community is a nice group of people that help each other. No doubt due to Jonathans success, the Clearwater Community Sailing Center has been named a U.S. Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider Training Center. The designation will help Clearwater attract international competitions and make it easier for Rudich and other aspiring young windsurfers and sailors to train. For now the focus has to be on the job at hand, getting a spot on the Olympic team. It wont be easy. In addition to the time and dedication needed to secure that position Rudich still has school to contend with. Hes a senior at Palm Harbor University High School and hopes to attend either the University of Florida or a California University in the fall. He said California will make it easier to train; Gainesville isnt near water. Still his goal, his dream, is the Olympics. His mother has no doubt it will happen. He is a very determined young man, she said of her son. Always when he set his mind on something, nothing gets in his way. Hopefully, hell be able to do his best to get there.

Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited, Thursday, April 3, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $65. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Steve Hacketts work is featured on some of the greatest songs of the past four decades. Whether with Genesis, GTR or on his solo output, the man has been a giant of the prog-rock genre. His guitar style and range has been both innovative and inspirational and hes most definitely among the greats on the instrument, as you can tell by listening to Genesis classics like Firth Of Fifth, Suppers Ready or The Musical Box. His sense of drama and diversity was accentuated by a desire to try different ideas, something thats still true. Jesse Cook, Sunday, April 6, 7:30 p.m., at The Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Canadian Juno Award-winning guitarist hits the road this winter on tour in support of his latest album release The Blue Guitar Sessions. Like millions the world over, Cook got his hands on a copy of Adeles and played it excessively. But Cook saw something that few others did, something which 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, which was released earlier this year. Audiences will soon discover how well The Blue Guitar Sessions translates to live performances. The shows will include songs from more familiar work as well as material from the new 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. For the 47-year-old Toronto resident, who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer, this record is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. Indeed, he has been a leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995s Tempest. Among his many accolades, in 2008, he won the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazines prestigious Players Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia. Cook 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. The result is a captivating 14-track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones, which he had exhaustively searched for to replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer and engineer. Nobuyuki Tsujii, Wednesday, April 9, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35.

Scheduled to perform at this years Crawfish Festival are J.B.s ZydecoZoo, Donna Angelle & the Zydeco Posse and Wayne Singleton & Same Ol 2 Step. Pianist John Babich J.B. was so enamored with the city of New Orleans and its musical heritage that he felt compelled to acquire an accordion and start playing zydeco shows in Tallahassee. After attending Florida State Universitys School of Music in the 1970s, Babich became a touring musician and played in several bands. He recorded five albums with Bill Wharton. In 2002, J.B.s ZydecoZoo was born, debuting with a concert at an American Legion Hall in Tallahassee. Our music is high energy, rockin, rhythmic zydeco in the vein of Beau Jocque, Clifton Chenier, C.J. Chenier, Rockin Dopsie and Stanley Dural Jr., Babich says in his bands biography. Also, my debut CD release J.B.s ZydecoZoo, contains 10 smokin original zydeco tunes. Rounding out the festival lineup is Tampa Bays own Ramblegrass Band, a bluegrass/jamgrass outfit featuring Bob Edwards on guitar, Mike Godwin on banjo, Phil Myers Jr. on mandolin and Jack Ray on standup bass. Born in 1951, Donna Angelles parents first noticed her interest in music when she was 8 according to her biography on Sonicbids. Encouraged by her high school music teacher, she went on to learn to play the clarinet, saxophone, viola, and flute. By the 1970s, Angelle had begun her professional music career playing keyboard for the artist Bobby Price. At the time, she was influenced by the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, and various artists who were making appearances on Soul Train and American Bandstand. After being injured in a serious car accident, Angelle spent several years away from music. When she returned, she showcased a variety of styles such as zydeco, oldie soul, and hip-hop. She met with Mike Lachney of Bad Weather Productions. Lach-Crawfish Festival ney, who produced several zydeco artists including John Delafose, Rosie Ledet, Pee Wee and the Boll Weevils, and Lady T. was impressed by Angelles soulful sound and signed her to his label. Her first record, Zydeco Soul, was released in 1995. It featured hits of the s and s with a touch of zydeco. Wayne Singleton is founder, lead vocalist and accordionist of the band Wayne Singleton & Same Ol 2 Step. According to a biography on his the bands website, Singleton was raised in Lewisburg, La., in a community centered in the area considered to be the birthplace of zydeco. He has been playing zydeco music since the age of 7. These days, Singleton writes most of his songs.

His most recent recording, Four MFs Playin Tunes, was released in 2012 on his own label, Marsalis Music. The album, which features Marsalis on saxes, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass and Justin Faulkner on drums, explored the limits of musical adventure and band cohesiveness.
