TORRESLARGO After reviewing a favorable audit of the previous years finances April 8, Largo commissioners discussed the citys major projects proposed for the next five years, projected to cost almost $130 million. The projects include things like an upgrade to the city website but also delineates plans for the city to replace and maintain its infrastructure. Assistant City Manager Mike Staffopoulos explained that the city had begun to take a holistic approach to replacing and renovating its buildings, roads and utility structures. In the past, most of the time, weve done this on a reactive-type basis; weve waited until we see a problem emerge and we go out and we fix that problem, he said. Instead, the city wants to assess everything it maintains. Using the Trotter Road project as an example, Staffopoulos said that while the city could just reconstruct the road itself, it made sense to consider the sanitary sewer lines that run underneath it, any wet weather systems and drainage associated with it and the condition of the adjacent sidewalks. We realized that there was a lot of overlap with regards to our asset management that we need to look at (from) a 50,000-foot elevation to make sure that were putting them all in the right prioritization, he explained. A proactive approach calls for the city to conduct studies to determine what needs to be upgraded and then prioritize plans for replacing or renovating city assets. Weve started on the smaller things like computer servers and vehicles, where weve been able to place them into replacement cycles before they actually fall apart or cost too much to maintain,Four arrested in attackCommunity reaches out to help 84-year-old victim By SUZETTE PORTERPINELLAS PARK An 84-year-old Pinellas Park man is recovering from his injuries, and the three teens that attacked him are in custody. Police arrested a fourth suspect Monday afternoon. Thanks to the generosity of three local businesses, Charles Clark has new locks on his home and his vehicle. Clark returned home from the store the morning of April 1 and parked on 76th Avenue. When he exited his vehicle, three teenage assailants attacked him from behind. He tried to fight off the attackers, knocking one to the ground. One pulled a knife and he was stabbed more than once in the arm. A passerby saw the attack and ran to Clarks aid. The unnamed Good Samaritan scared the teens away, and they fled the scene on bicycles. Area schools were placed on lockdown while Pinellas Park K-9 units searched the area with the assistance of PCSO air support. The teens were not found. Clark was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released. He told police he thought the teens were trying to steal his car, according to Sgt. Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park police public information officer. That night, his car was stolen sometime between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. from in front of his home on 76th Avenue. Police recovered it that morning in south St. Petersburg. They also released videos of two of the suspects riding bicycles near crime scene and asked the publics help to identify two black males and one Hispanic female. Geissenberger announced later that afternoon that police had identified one of the three suspects. Police took AntonioAn arsenal of humorStand-up comedian G. David Howard, 75, has been collecting jokes for decades ... and isnt about to stop By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO G. David Howard is not your typical comedian. The author of a recently published political memoir has been telling jokes for a living for more than four decades. He was recognized in the Guinness World Book of Records for 16 hours of stand-up without so much as a bathroom break. He started his career in Ohio, of all places, before comedy clubs were even popular and later was a staple performer in Las Vegas for five years. He once raised a pet mountain lion, who made appearances on stage and in the club he owned at the time. Hes played with professional baseball players during spring training, just because they liked him. He collects jokes like baseball cards, drawers filled with binders of hundreds of thousands of jokes, much to his wifes dismay. At 75, the comedian, whose friends call him just by G, isnt about to slow down. Im funnier right now than Ive ever been in my career, he said. Ill retire when I cant make people laugh anymore. Howard lives in Largo with his wife of 50 years, Dana. He has a regular show at Leos Italian Grill in Palm Harbor on most Saturdays, at exactly 9:01 p.m., though he recently pushed the start time back to 9:02 p.m., due to seasonal traffic, he said. His focus for the last couple of years has been a politically charged book entitled, Half of America Is Nuts and They were Allowed To Vote. The selfdescribed right-wing conservative said he wrote the book for independent thinkers stubbornly against forming a group. But he wanted the book to be funny to all political leanings, so he tested it out on his liberal friends to make sure they were still laughing at the jokes as they read it. They told me, The bad thing is youre serious about this stuff, Howard said. And theyre laughing and giggling at it, so I knew I was on the right track.Born to tell jokesHowards career as a comedian started in high Photos by JIM LAYFIELD Photo by JULIANA A.

The schools seniors had built banks of snow near the entrance to the teacher parking lot off Missouri Avenue. Teachers who came from the north really appreciated the prank as it reminded them of all the snow they miss shoveling each day especially this blizzard-bound winter, explained Deb Howard, secretary of the schools ExCEL magnet program. It was great because it didnt accidentally cause any damage and would dissolve before our school day ended. The snow was packed to allow entry into the parking lot. A local skating rink is rumored to have helped the seniors. It was a great prank and next years seniors have a high bench mark to surpass, Howard said.

Guardians ad litem advocate for children in court and in the child welfare system. They visit the child every month, become familiar with the childs case and make recommendations to the court to help ensure the child has a safe, caring and stable home. Unfortunately, not all children who are in the foster care system have the benefit of a guardian ad litem advocating for them. No prior experience is necessary; you will be well trained and supported by an experienced supervisory and legal staff. Once trained, volunteers spend an average of ten hours a month. To attend an informational meeting, call Kristi Tolmer at 464-6528.

But moving forward, city staff would be considering larger projects: assessing the condition of Largos roads, considering the expansion of the sidewalk system and, as was discussed in the commissioners work session last month, developing a master plan for the reclaimed water system. The citys forgotten utility has been in the ground for almost 30 years and is potentially due for some major work, Staffopoulos said. The city was working on an investigation of the system. There may be some policy decisions as to whether we expand or retract reclaimed (water) based on the information we find out, Staffopoulos said. To offset future costs, the city has proposed a 15 percent increase to the wastewater fee next year and in the fiscal year 2019. An analysis of the stormwater system is a more pressing issue, Staffopoulos said. The city is proposing a $500,000 study of its canals, ditches, roadside swales, culverts, drainage structures, ponds and treatment units in next years budget. To help fund the study and the infrastructure upgrades, staff is proposing a 25 percent stormwater fee increase for four years starting in fiscal year 2016, meaning that by fiscal year 2019, the fee will have doubled. The stormwater fund is not self-supporting for all stormwater needs, said budget manager Amy Davis. Many of the infrastructure upgrades to date have been paid for with Penny for Pinellas funds. Davis said that lots of other communities had stormwater fees that are twice our rate. City staff also is considering how often it should replace or upgrade its buildings using new asset management software. Aside from the fee-based funds, the city is projecting a 5 percent increase in property tax revenue, achieved at least in part by an increase in the property tax rate. Staff estimated between 1 and 4 percent increase in the citys property values, but the projections are only preliminary. The only service-level increase within the general fund is the new city website and a dedicated staff person to manage it. The current site is about seven years old and long overdue for an upgrade. The city is still in the preliminary stages of discussing what functionality would serve our residents as well as how the city would allocate a staff person to maintain it, Davis explained. IT Director Harold Schomaker said his department had every intention to bring the site up to current standards, including using HTML5 formats. We will be changing all of the look and feel to more modern techPeterson, 16, into custody that evening. He was charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon. His brother, Xavier Peterson, 13, approached Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies to turn himself in around 11:35 p.m. April 2. Under questioning by Pinellas Park police, he admitted to taking Clarks car, but denied taking part in the attack. He was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle. The third suspect, Jazmine Burney, 15, was arrested April 3. No details of her arrest were made available. Pinellas Park police announced Monday, April 7, that St. Petersburg Police Department Career Offender Unit had arrested Marquez Dunbar, 20, of St. Petersburg about 4:30 p.m. He was charged with violation of probation for carjacking and armed robbery. Dunbar was released from prison Nov. 11, 2013, after serving three years for two counts of carjacking and one count of resisting an officer with violence.Help from local businessesAfter hearing about Clarks troubles, three Pinellas Park businesses stepped up to lend a hand, Geissenberger said. Renny Beatch from Johns Key Shop changed the locks at his home. Robert Yoho from YoHos towing transported his vehicle to Walker Ford. The dealership repainted the vehicles hood where it was damaged, replaced the locks and filled it with gas. Pinellas Park PD posted the news and photos on its Facebook page where a number of people posted comments, including Its good to see that there are still some good people out there. I hope all three of those juvenile delinquents pay dearly. My heart broke when I saw his face all bruised and battered God bless you, Mr. Clark, praying for a speedy recovery for you. Awesome work by all involved. What a great community to live in. Terrible event, but what a wonderful outpouring by the community. Photo courtesy of PINELLAS PARK PDVivid bruises appear on Charles Clarks face the day after he was attacked. Clark chats with Renny Beatch from Johns Key Shop in Pinellas Park, who replaced the lock on his front door April 2. Clark was beaten and stabbed in an attack April 1. His vehicle was stolen that night and has since been recovered. YoHos Collision Center towed the vehicle without charge to Walker Ford where it received a free lock change and more. ATTACK, from page 1A COMEDIAN, from page 1Aschool in Ohio. He had developed a reputation as a funny guy before starting as a 10th grader at the school but thought he might be in trouble when he was first called to the principals office. In fact, the principal invited him to open a full-school assembly every Tuesday morning with a funny, 5-10 minute monologue in front of 1,300 students. Howard happily accepted the gig. So I was pretty accustomed to being in front of people and talking, he said. As an adult, working as a Nationwide insurance agent, he began to put a stand-up act together and befriend other entertainers, usually singers and musicians who would invite him on stage as 15-minute comedic relief to their show. After about a year, he landed his first paid gig, on Dec. 31, 1973 in Centerville, Ohio. Performing a New Years Eve show was daunting, but Howard felt well prepared. There werent any comedy clubs in the Mid-West at the time, so to book his own act, he had to convince hotels, lounges and clubs to forgo a band and give a comedian a chance to entertain their customers. It was an uphill climb just to get booked, Howard said. He kept his day job until he started developing a following, and his district manager noticed an ad for his show in a local newspaper. We cant have that. Its not the image we want, Howard remembered the man saying, giving him the choice of his steady job or budding comedic career. He tried to argue that his production had not been affected, but the manager would have nothing of it. I was born to this. I have to do it, he said. So Howard quit, then and there. He was married and had four young sons, but he promised Dana he would make it work. He found a job unloading trucks late at night after his comedy gigs. Then in 1975, he got a big break. He was performing in Dayton, Ohio, when he met a man who said he was a Marine buddy of Woody Woodbury, one of Howards comedic idols. The man was so impressed with Howard, that he gave him Woodburys home phone number. Woodbury, who ran a night club in Fort Lauderdale, advised Howard that the west coast of Florida was devoid of good comics and gave him the number of the biggest booking agency in the state. By May 23, 1975, Howard had a one-week contract to perform at the Witches Brew Lounge in Naples. He ended up working there 53 consecutive weeks. They were lined up out in the parking lot trying to get in. They had never heard anything like what I do in that town, Howard said. Word spread quickly, so I had a very successful run there. His next move was to the Hilton in Clearwater Beach. He started with a four-week contract and stayed for five years, working six nights a week. After the Hilton was sold, Howard bought a place across the street on Bayway Boulevard and called it G. Davids. He later moved the club to a Ramada Inn, leasing the food and beverage operation from the hotel. He moved back to Fort Meyers to open what he called the Comedy Cafe. While he was there, the man in charge of booking comedians into the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana Las Vegas saw his act and invited him to perform in January 1992. Howard began performing twice a year in Las Vegas and then once a month. I just fell in love with the west, and the mountains and the dessert. I liked it a lot. I liked the energy of the city. The wife liked it, so we sold everything here and moved out there, Howard said.Long-form comedyHoward said he had a nice, five-year run in Las Vegas, playing a different club along the strip each week. He was used to being a one-man show, performing from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. each night. His first experience in an actual comedy club, sharing the stage with other comedians who were far more casually dressed, he noted was his first show at the Comedy Stop. He already has been published in the Guinness World Records for longest stand-up, going 13 hours and 47 minutes without a break at the Hilton in Clearwater. The following year, he beat his own record, starting at 10 a.m. and never repeating a joke until the club closed at 2 a.m. He didnt take a break to even visit the restroom. He was strategic in what he consumed during that time, starting with hot tea with honey and lemon for a couple of hours, switching to hot chicken broth next, then a beer until the sun set, concluding with scotch. He answered interview questions with media representatives for another 90 minutes before he finally made it to the restroom. The Guinness medical staff decided that 16 hours was far too long without a break and so, after publishing Howards feat, altered the rules of the category to include 5-minute breaks every hour. Howard said it wasnt hard to keep the jokes coming. He started collecting jokes in a six-ring binder in second grade and says he has about 10,000 stored at the ready in his brain. His wife has urged him to convert the file cabinets of jokes to electronic form to save space, which Howard said hes tried. Its overwhelming. Ive got drawers full, file drawers and file drawers, he said. Many of the younger comedians he encountered in Vegas had significantly less material, he discovered. The comedy clubs had a different format than Howard was used to, using three comedians at a time on stage in one night. The format was developed after comedy clubs exploded in the 1980s. It afforded opportunity for guys that didnt have a whole lot of material to work, he explained. These days, Howard keeps his shows between 90 minutes and two hours, advised at one point that the shorter shows require less of a time commitment from his audience, thus encouraging more repeat fans. And his jokes have gotten shorter. I used to spend a lot of time between jokes, setting them up and storytelling, he explained. Now you listen to my show, theres a roar of laughter every three seconds. I chopped (out) all the deadwood. He said he could still do a four-hour show, if the audience can stay with him. But usually, they cant. People cant laugh anymore. They sit there and hold their jaws, Howard said. Theyre looking at me, Give me a time out! They cant laugh; theyre crying.Lucky GThe Vegas strip began to lose its luster when the hotels added non-compete clauses to his contract, preventing Howard from performing anywhere else in Las Vegas for 60 days after a performance. For a while, he tried traveling in between Vegas gigs, but soon discovered that living on the road was for younger comedians. When he moved back to Florida, he and his wife operated a place called the Brewmaster Steakhouse in Indian Rocks Beach until December 2010. The restaurant employed 60 people and could sit 500 customers at a time. We did a nice business, but it was too much work for a mom-and-pop operation, he said. Howard had a run-in with the city of Indian Rocks Beach when he tried to replace his sign for the rotted sign for the restaurant. At issue, he discovered after a series of wrangling, was the name of the tiki bar, which he had dubbed Gs spot. In the end, the sign was changed to say Gs place. I dont get along well with bureaucrats, Howard said. They wont let you have a sense of humor. Howard said he wouldnt want to go back to being the boss of his own place. After 10 years there, my wife and I were just exhausted with it, he said. He sold his half to his business partner, though the restaurant didnt stay open much longer. Howard had a book in his head he wanted to write, a task he found rather time-consuming. These days, Howard performs only a few times a month. In his career, hes had offers to perform in Los Angeles and New York, but had to turn the opportunities down because they werent willing to pay him enough, if anything at all. With a mortgage and four kids, he couldnt afford not to be seen by the right people in order to become famous. I feel kind of lucky in a way, he said. Ive had a nice 40 years without becoming a big star. I had a chance to meet all these wonderful people. He doesnt envy more successful comedians. They have no time. Theyre not their own person, even though theyre very wealthy, he explained. You can become a prisoner of your money. Howard will next perform Friday and Saturday, April 11-12, 7 p.m., at Snappers Grill and Comedy Club, 36657 U.S. 19 N., in Palm Harbor. Tickets are $15. Call 938-2027 or visit www.snappersgrill.com. His normal venue on Saturday nights is Leos Italian Grill, 33286 U.S. 19 N., in Palm Harbor. The cover charge is $15. For reservations, call 786-9110. Howards book is available on Amazon.com. Follow him at Facebook.com/gdavidhoward. niques, he said. We will try to keep it as dynamic as possible so in five to seven years, its still mainstream. According to the current five-year projections, the general fund balance dips below the minimum 10 percent reserves goal for a few years as expenditures grow and revenues dont keep up. City administration will be working hard to present a proposed budget that includes both employee pay raises and acceptable fund balance levels, City Manager Mac Craig wrote in his introductory letter for the capital improvements program. The citys projection of the general fund includes the disputed reduction in EMS funds from the county. The April 8 workshop allowed commissioners to review the capital improvements program in detail. They will vote on approval of the proposed projects in an upcoming public hearing.

State legislature honors the late C.W. Bill Young with tuition bill By SUZETTE PORTERTALLAHASSEE The Florida Legislature convened March 6. As of April 2, the governor has already signed six major pieces of legislation into law, including one that honors former Pinellas County Congressman C.W. Bill Young. Gov. Rick Scott signed House Bill 7015 March 31, creating the Congressman C.W. Bill Young Tuition Waiver Program, which waives out-of-state tuition fees for honorably discharged veterans. Rep. Young represented the people in Pinellas Countys District 13 in the U.S. House of Representatives for more than 42 years before he died Oct. 18, 2013. He was well known for his work with veterans and their families. I am proud to sign H.B. 7015 that will waive out of state tuition fees for honorably discharged veterans, Scott said in a press release. I am pleased to also sign this legislation that will help our veterans find employment and expand career opportunities for veterans and their spouses. We are working to be the most military-friendly state in the nation, and this is another step to support our brave men and women who serve our nation.Sexual offendersScott signed four pieces of legislation April 1 that garnered praise from law enforcement and social service agencies throughout the state. Senate bills 522, 524, 526 and 528 provide additional protections against sexual offenders. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri joined those thanking state officials for the new legislation. We appreciate the efforts of the governor and legislature in working with and receiving input from law enforcement to craft the sexual predator/offender bills that will be signed into law today, Gualtieri said. The various pieces of legislation as a whole will not only increase accountability for sex offenders, but make Floridas communities safer through its enhanced and broadened registration requirements. SB 522 requires sheriffs to refer prisoners who are serving sentences in a county detention facility for civil commitment proceedings if those prisoners are registered sexual offenders or sexual predators and have previously committed a sexually violent offense. The legislation also adds a state attorney, law enforcement officer and victims advocate as advisory members to the multidisciplinary team that currently evaluates offenders who are considered for civil confinement. The bill expands requirements for Department of Children and Families release notifications to include the sheriff of the county in which the person intends to reside. SB 524 requires a person be defined as a sexually violent predator and be subject to civil confinement after a finding by two or more members of a multidisciplinary team. It requires higher education institutions to tell students about a sexual predators presence on campus. SB 526 increases the length of sentences for some adult-on-minor sexual offenses and prohibits incentive gain-time for offenders convicted of certain sexual offenses. The legislation suspends (tolls) post-release supervision of offenders while in DCF custody as part of the civil commitment process and requires the court to order community supervision (split sentences) after release from prison for certain sexual offenses. SB 528 requires registrants to report vehicle information, Internet identifiers, palm prints, passports, professional licenses, immigration status, volunteer work at a higher education institution and other information. The legislation strengthens current law by requiring registrants to provide information on vehicles they own and on vehicles they operate that are owned by any person who resides with the registrant. SB 528 was amended by the Judiciary Committee to increase protections against sexual offenders who may seek to avoid registration requirements by obtaining a legal name change.Vehicle registration feesScott signed Senate Bill 156 April 2. Officials say the bill will save motorists approximately $400,000 on their annual vehicle registration fees. Scott sent a letter to the tax collectors encouraging Floridians who require a registration renewal before Sept. 1 to register for one year. Pinellas Countys Tax Collector Diane Nelson removed the Photo courtesy of the GOVERNORS OFFICEGov. Rick Scott signs Senate bills 522, 524, 526 and 528 April 1 while surrounded by supporters of additional laws to protect against sexual offenders. See LEGISLATURE, page 6A

Beginning Sept. 1, registration costs will go down by $25.05 for heavyweight vehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the pending legislation and potential savings, Nelson said last month when she removed the two-year option. In 2013, 9 percent of Pinellas County residents took advantage of the biennial registration. A conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration shows that Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. Residents can still renew their registrations for two years by writing two year renewal on their registration renewal return card and double the amount to be paid. There is no cost advantage with two-year registration renewals, they are offered as a matter of convenience, Nelson said.

LEGISLATURE, from page 5AProposed Bluffs fire station draws resident protest By WAYNE AYERSBELLEAIR BLUFFS Fire stations do not belong in residential and recreational areas. Thats the message a group of Belleair Bluffs residents hope to convey to city officials when they present a petition signed by neighbors of a proposed new station to be located on city property across from city hall. The property also sits in a residential neighborhood and is close to the city park where children play, said resident Lori Spence, who is heading the petition drive. Spence said a number of residents whose homes are close to the fire station are very concerned. We are opposed to this. It is not the right location for a Largo fire station, she said in a recent interview. Spence said the residents are concerned about a decrease in their property values due to the stations presence, as well as the noise of sirens and fire trucks going back and forth, and the potential danger to children playing in the nearby playground. A number of retirees and elderly people live in the neighborhood surrounding the station site, Spence said. This is not going to be very pleasant for them with the noise and the threat of lower property values, she said. A lot of the neighbors didnt agree (with putting the station there), and the petition gives them a needed voice, she said. As she has been circulating the petition opposing the station, Spence said she has found a significant backlash among the residents. Spence believes the fire station belongs on Indian Rocks Road where the existing station sits. She wonders why the current station cannot just be renovated. That would be more cost effective, she said, and solve the problems associated with the proposed site across from city hall. Bluffs Mayor Chris Arbutine addressed some of the concerns being cited by Spence at a city commission meeting last month. The proposed station site was chosen, he said, because it is the best location to assure that emergency response times are met. As to noise concerns, Arbutine said a concrete wall to buffer the sounds has been included in every discussion weve had on the station and will be part of the plans. The sirens would not be turned on until the fire trucks reach West Bay Drive, according to the fire chief. Arbutine said the station plans have been known to residents for the past five years. Spence was asked why the residents did not protest the proposed stations location earlier. She said there was a long period of inaction after the initial talk of building a new station, and we thought that, hopefully, it was a dead deal. Spence said the whole idea of putting the station in Belleair Bluffs on the property next to city hall had been pushed along by Largo after rejecting previous sites further south on Indian Rocks Road in Largo. Putting the fire station here would be a disaster, Spence said. Weve looked at this very closely, she said. It is not a good place. Spence urged concerned residents to turn out at the April 14 commission workshop meeting when the petition opposing the fire station, which she said will contain more than 80 signatures, will be presented. Stink continues at Reliable Septic By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The problem began in 2011 with neighbors complaining about the smell coming from a fat, oil and grease plant at 6660 90th Ave. N. in Pinellas Park. In August of that year, Pinellas County Utilities Division issued Reliable Septic and M & D a three-year industrial wastewater discharge permit. But, operations began without proper zoning, without the requisite zoning clearance and without an approved site plan. The property was zoned C-2, and a FOG plant is not allowed in a C-2 zoning district. After neighbors complaints, county staff inspected the plant and verified the problems. Air Quality Division issued a warning letter for objectionable sewage line odors. Before long, Reliable found itself in violation of several areas of county code. On Aug. 27, County Administrator Bob LaSala issued a cease and desist order for operation of a FOG plant on the property. But, M & D and Reliable continued its operations. The Department of Environment and Infrastructure verified several complaints during the month of September, including unauthorized discharges into the countys stormwater system. Despite stiff opposition from the neighbors, County Commissioners approved, 4-3, a resolution changing the zoning from C-2 to C-3 on Jan. 29, 2013. Commissioners John Morroni, Karen Seel and Norm Roche voted no. The zoning change allowed the facility to operate within the proper zoning district. At that Jan. 29 meeting, Michael Albert, president of Reliable Septic, argued that the county had issued him a permit, which he put into use. I came to you in good faith, he said. You knew what I wanted to do. He talked about the expenses involved in the permitting process and the cost to comply with laws and regulations. He also talked about the money invested trying to meet the countys requirements. I would not have spent $400,000 if Id known about the rezoning and the uncertainty of that, he said. We promise you if you approve the zoning, he will do what he needs to do, said Kevin S. Hennessy, Alberts attorney at the time. Weve been here for 40 years. He (Albert) wants to do this for his business and his family. On June 18, 2013, when the complaints kept coming in, County Commissioners agreed to get help from an impartial expert to resolve the continuing dispute. Fines of $500 a day for confirmed violations were accumulating. The owner was refusing to pay. And he accused the county of trying to put him out of business. Ted Legakis, who owns a neighboring business, has been among the neighbors complaining since the very beginning. He was back before the commission April 1. He said the smells were continuing and complained that the facility was clogging the sewer. He said the business next door to the plant had closed and a small grocery store nearby had closed the week before. Legakis has complained for years that it is bad for adjacent businesses to operate next to a FOG plant. David Scott, director of the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, said there had been eight air quality complaints since June 2013 with seven confirmed. Recently operations have been moved back outdoors, which violates the site plan. During a recent rain event, a runoff violation occurred. Currently the owner owes $22,000 in fines. He has paid $4,500 in fines over the years. The facilitys permit expires in July. Scott said the owner has indicated he would not renew. He is reportedly looking for a place to take his waste. Scott said staff was not currently considering revoking the permit and would allow the owner to make a good faith effort to update needed paperwork, which Scott had expected to receive on April 1. He also said Albert had fired his lawyer. He is making a business decision, he said. network supports both 802.11g and 802.11n wireless devices.

County 7A Leader, April 10, 2014 040314 041014 Tips during Water Conservation MonthWhile the Southwest Water Management District encourages water conservation year-round, there is extra emphasis each April for Water Conservation Month. April is traditionally one of the driest months of the year and typically marks the peak demand season for public water suppliers. With 10 simple tips, you can lower your monthly water bill and do your part to save hundreds of gallons of water: Indoor Run the washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full. Use the shortest clothes washing cycle for lightly soiled loads; normal and permanent press wash cycles use more water. Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator or microwave, not under running water. Scrape, dont rinse, dishes before loading in the dishwasher. Install high-efficiency showerheads, faucets and toilets. Outdoor Check home irrigation system for leaks to save up to 6,300 gallons of water per month. Turn off home irrigation system and only water as needed; save up to 2,000 gallons each time a watering day is skipped. Dont leave sprinklers unattended. Use a kitchen timer to remind yourself to turn off sprinklers. Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car to save around 40 gallons per wash. Consider installing a rain barrel with a drip irrigation system for watering your landscaping. Rainwater is free and better for your plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals.LeaksLeaks are the biggest water waster, inside and outside of the home. Use the water meter to check for leaks. Turn off all faucets and water-using appliances and make sure no one uses water during the testing period. Remember to wait for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to refill and for regeneration of water softeners. Go to your water meter and record the current reading. Wait 30 minutes. Remember: no water should be used during this period. Read the meter again. If the reading has changed, you have a leak.

Visit IRBhome.com.County attorney receives good review By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Attorney Jim Bennett got some good news when results of his annual job review were made public April 1. Bennett scored 371.9 out of a possible 400, garnering a 93 percent average, based on scores given by each of the seven commissions. His highest score, a perfect 4 out of 4, was given for integrity. His lowest, 3.46, was for communication. Bennett scored a 3.9 for provision of major legal services routine internal activities, 3.81 for staff effectiveness, 3.66 for provision of major legal services, 3.58 for leadership, 3.5 for organization, planning and management. The rankings were very, very good, said Commission Chair Karen Seel, who thanked Bennett for his leadership. She commented that the countys legal department had a lot of retirements lately and praised Bennett for his cross-training efforts. His 2015 budget proposal is 1 percent less than for the current fiscal year. Hes doing an excellent job, she said. Bennett thanked the commission for its support, trust and confidence in my staff. In other business, the commission: Approved a request from Bennett to initiate litigation against Dorothy Yeakle to get her to comply with an order of care involving animals. Bennett said she had already agreed to reduce the number of animals in the home to 10. Bennett said staff wants the ability to ensure she keeps to only 10 and that their care is adequate. Approved an amendment terminating the administrative services agreement with the Housing Finance Authority. The county has provided administrative support to HFA since it was created in 1982. Approval of the amendment allows HFA to become operationally independent. It will still report to the commission on a regular basis. The move means a loss of $875,000 in staff-related costs previously paid to the county by HFA. In FY 2014, the loss will be $755,340. To recoup that loss, budget adjustments were made, including a lapse of a $310,750 transfer from the general fund to the community development fund; adding $140,000 gained by staff retirements and unfilled vacancies; and adding a potential $304,590 in grant money. Denied a health program agreement with Baycare Health Systems. Commissioners asked staff to go back and negotiate with Bayfront HMA Medical Center and Florida Hospital North Pinellas as well as Baycare to try to get a more inclusive contract for medical services. The services providers are unhappy with a recent change in the funding distribution formula. The county currently has no contract for service for hospital care for its indigent population. Local hospitals are providing procedures for life-threatening conditions only. Jim BennettBiggest Beach Party ever set for April 26 Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.com

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.

Hoppy Easter!Tampa Bay Newspapers is hoppy to announce that Ally, a greyhound mix, is the April Pet of the Month Photo Contest winner. Donna and Richard Seaman of Largo adopted her from the SPCA Tampa Bay, where she had been put up for adoption twice, before she was 1.5 years old. Ally is now 12 and a happy senior citizen who loves her mom and dad. Ally is a social butterfly in their neighborhood, and when they are all outside, Ally strolls from house to house and plops down in neighbors yards to watch people go by. She loves to follow her humans every move and greets them with a stuffed animal when they get home. Ally may be beginning to show signs of aging, but she still remains the most loyal, sweetest and loving dog that her parents could ask for. It is the greatest feeling in the world when I come home from work and she runs out to greet me with a stuffed animal in her mouth, Donna said. She will see my car coming up the street and guide me in as if I am an airplane landing. For being this months pet winner, Ally wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

There are several categories of skin abnormalities that affect dogs. Many of the various skin conditions we treat at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin are either cured or controlled with proper treatment. Here are some questions we frequently answer. What are immune-mediated skin disorders? The most frequently treated immune-mediated skin disorder in the canine is Canine Atopic skin disease. This condition occurs when the immune system becomes overactive and reacts to different components of the environment, causing itching, licking, scratching or chewing of the feet, face and body. There are many things that cause a reaction from the immune system of the dog. Examples of these reactive substances are fleas, pollen, molds, grasses, trees, plants and dust-mites. Atopic allergy can become a long-term chronic disease that requires constant attention. If we are able to decrease or eliminate the reactive substance from the environment of the dog, we can control the allergic response and return to normal. In Florida, it is often difficult to eliminate the problem because these substances are everywhere. Besides reduction or elimination of these offending substances from the environment, there are three major ways to treat this condition. First is by allergy desensitization where blood is drawn to find out to what our patient is reacting. With a series of allergy injections over many months, the immune system is retrained to react in a different manner to these substances. This halts the reactive process and the clinical symptoms mentioned hopefully above go away. Second, we will treat symptomatically with antibiotics if infection is present and also may use a steroid to reduce the biting, scratching, licking and chewing that we see. The third way we approach atopic allergy is by giving a medication to mildly suppress the immune system so the allergic reaction stops. All of these treatments work well some of the time but not all of the time. Another type of immune-mediated skin disorder is called Pemphigus foliaceus. Although not nearly as common as atopic skin disease, it is the most common autoimmune skin disease of the canine. Blisters with crusting sores are seen most often on the face and ears but can affect the whole body. This condition, along with the more severe autoimmune skin diseases, are most effectively treated with strong drugs that counteract the intense immune response by the dogs own body against itself. What are hot spots? Hot spots are technically called moist traumatic dermatitis. These intense, moist, weeping areas come initially from some irritation that becomes infected with staphylococcal bacteria that normally reside on the skin. These bacteria take advantage of this heat, moisture and breakdown of the top layers of the skin from trauma by scratching, licking or biting. A hot spot is like a brush fire turning into a forest fire in a matter of hours. This condition is treated with steroids, antibiotics, topical applications, clipping, cleaning and drying the affected area. Care must be taken to stop the trauma caused by the patient to the area involved. Anything that makes a dog itch can lead to a hot spot. What is an acral lick granuloma? This is a condition frequently seen in dogs on their legs. This begins as a small irritation on the legs that causes the dog to lick excessively until the top layer of the skin is devoid of hair, and an ulcerated red and raw area is created. These areas are difficult to cure because there is an obsessivecompulsive nature to these lesions once they are created. There are many ways to treat these lesions. No one treatment effectively treats all of these cases. Antibiotics, topical preparations, antidepressants and covering the lesion to prevent the licking are some of the techniques used. What is the difference between sarcoptic and demodectic mange? Both of these conditions are caused by a mite that invades the skin of our canine patients. The majority of demodex cases are in younger dogs. This condition is not contagious to other dogs or people. This is frequently called red mange. The majority of these cases are easily treated. Sarcoptic mange is another skin mite that can be found in dogs of all ages. One important difference here is that sarcoptic mange is contagious to both other dogs and to people, so it is important to differentiate the type of mange that a patient has. Fortunately, sarcoptic mange is easily treated and eliminated when diagnosed properly.

I ask my kids that same question. My parents always encouraged me to reach for the stars and be whatever I wanted to be and do whatever I wanted to do. They believed that if we tried hard enough we could accomplish anything we set our mind to. They were right. Sometimes we didnt succeed at first and maybe not even a second or third time, but eventually we accomplished our goals. I tell my children the same thing. While growing up, I saw how my parents treated each other and the love they had for one another and that stuck with me in my relationship with my husband. My parents put God first in their marriage and then each other, caring for one another and being each others best friend. My husband and I do the same. The example my parents have shown me and my siblings is an amazing one. I think parents today dont realize just how much of an influence they have on their kids. I hope to follow in my parents footsteps as a wife and mother living my life as a positive example for them. Thank you, Dad and Mom! Happy 45th anniversary! Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2 MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com. Photo courtesy of the HENDRICKS FAMILYKati and Randy Hendricks were married April 12, 1969.This week is my parents 45th wedding anniversary. As I reflect on this, I think about the influence my parents have had on me not only as a person, but also as a wife and a mom. I am truly blessed to have my parents. Since we dont get to choose our parents when we are born, it amazes me how I was able to get the parents I have. They are truly wonderful and have taught me so much during my life. Growing up, my parents instilled in me a Christian faith, family, love, good morals and ethics and to do my best in everything I do. I have always looked to my parents for guidance. Both of them are successful in different ways. My father is a successful businessman and my mother a successful stay-at-home mom. Anyone who is a stay-at-home mom knows it is one of the hardest jobs. My mom gave up her career to raise four kids. I am the oldest of those children. I have two sisters and a brother. If you know my family, you know we are very close. All of my sisters and brother are married, and there are 18 of us including grandkids. We all have lived in Pinellas County most of our lives and get together as a group at least once a month, if not more. My parents have always made family a priority in our lives. It started when we were growing up. We did almost everything together from attending each others soccer, basketball, baseball and softball games and gymnastic meets to going on family vacations together, attending church and just eating dinner together as a family. Its funny how I see my life repeating some of the things my parents did as I continue these same family values. When my kids were born, I quit my career so I could stay at home with my kids. I felt that it was important for me to be with my girls and raise them. I was fortunate to be able to do this.

Viewpoints 15A Leader, April 10, 2014I want to tell you a story about why our community desperately needs to be aware of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs. As a current Big Brother, I hope my story will inspire all who encounter it. So please, take a moment to join me on my mentoring journey and see where it takes you. Our first meeting was inauspicious. Shaq was barely awake and sat uninterested on the couch. Our first outings were awkward. He was guarded in his responses, and we had little to talk about. After subsequent visits Shaq would always ask me if I was coming back, I assured him I would. I thought to myself, heres a kid whos been let down and hurt before. I made the mistake of many new Big Brothers; I tried to make each outing an event and spent too much money trying to entertain. Shaq was unclear on the Big Brother concept. He thought I was a paid employee and could not believe I was spending my own money on him. As the weeks went on we became more comfortable with each other. Shaq stopped asking if I was coming back. I got to know Shaqs grandmother, Doris, who raised him since he was a baby. Our relationship grew and progressed. Ill never forget our outing to the city recreation pool. Shaq asked me to go on the water slide. Please note that these tubular structures are built to accommodate a 3to 5-foot child, not the 6-foot, 230 lb. now 60-year-old adult whose body creaks like an old wooden ship at sea for the first half hour of every morning. I tumbled out of the tube with enough speed to force an entire gallon of water up my nose. I landed sputtering and coughing as Shaq negotiated the same slide, no problem. He then pointed to the second slide, a much taller and tortuous structure. Three thoughts went through my mind as I hurtled down the tube: 1. Those are my heels? 2. Ive never seen the backs of my knees before. 3. This is going to hurt. I hit the water like an Apollo capsule landing in the Pacific and took in another snootful of water. Unable to speak, I gestured toward the slide as if to say, Your turn. Shaq shook his head in disagreement and swam away with a smile on his face. Seriously? Well played my friend, I said to myself, as I vowed revenge. An anecdote that certainly illustrates the demeanor of our relationship. Being a Big Brother is easy. First you have to show up and second you have to be there when youre needed. Someone once said, Ninety percent of life is just showing up. Being there is the other half of the equation. Its just that easy and just that complex. Just like life. Shaq and I spend two-three hours together every Saturday. Weve been together for six years. We talk about serious issues. We laugh at each other and at ourselves. We talk about inconsequential issues. We shoot basketball, bowl, run errands, go to movies, clothes shop and occasionally well do something special like Busch Gardens. Neither of us understands women. I enjoy his company and I respect the man he has become. We set only one goal for Shaq to graduate with his class. This seemingly innocuous goal takes on new meaning when you realize that only 21 percent of black males in Pinellas County schools actually graduate and Shaq will be one of them. Hes not coasting. He is working hard, even taking night classes, and has been on the honor roll most of his senior year. I could not be prouder. Shaq isnt going to get an academic scholarship to Princeton and he wont be a running back at the University of Florida. This is not a Hollywood movie. What Shaq does have is a shot at a college education and a future. Ive thought long and hard about what words of wisdom I want to say to Shaq on graduation night. What can you say to a young man who has come so far? Im a collector of quotes. I settled on two quotes that cover all the vagaries of life. Here is what Ive come up with: Shaq, always remember, I before E except after C and quoting Winston Churchill, Never, never, never, never give up. The message Id like to share with you and your readers today is that there are so many children, just like Shaq, who are waiting for someone like you to be their mentor and friend. In fact, there are more than 175 young boys and girls who are ready to be matched Today at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County. Will you embark on a personal mentoring expedition? Call Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas today to learn more about how you can start something big in the life of a child, at 518-8860 or visit their website at www.bbbspc.org.

It has a place, the right participants, (men, women, boys, girls, small children and bikers) and its only waiting for the right time. With the warm weather coming, spring break is here and many more visitors on the beach where bikers are trying to share a narrow strip of hard beach with many beach goers walking and playing on the shore line. Never mind that its illegal to ride your bike on the beach. Theres no signage to tell you so, rental shops dont warn you, and little law enforcement activity or effort will make a difference. Unfortunately most beach goers dont know their rights and the little ones may be the first victims. Hopefully the prospective mayors of our Gulf beaches will step up to prevent a tragic accident that is just waiting for the right time to happen. Robert Buzby Redington Shores Crows, spaniels, sharks, elephantsTHE ELEPHANT AND THE RECEPTIONIST. An elephant walked into a stockbrokers office and told Pam, the receptionist, Im here to apply for your opening as a hedge fund manager. Pam said, Im sorry, but we hire only bulls or bears. Disappointed, the elephant rampaged through the place, knocking down walls and tossing desks and computers through the air. Moral: if youre a receptionist named Pam and an elephant walks in, get out. THE SHARK AND THE TURTLE. In the waters of Tampa Bay, on the Pinellas end of the Howard Frankland Bridge, there lived a shark and a turtle. The turtle kept bragging to the shark, saying I can live both on the land and in the water, but you must spend your life in the water. Im therefore better than you. The shark finally said, Yes, you certainly are. At which point he gobbled up the turtle, with a mighty crunch. Moral: if youre a turtle living near a shark, either shut up or stay on shore. THE OLD MAN AND HIS DOCTOR BILLS. Each January an old man named Jake went crazy trying to figure out his medical bills. His eye doctor charged him $72 for a Jan. 6 checkup, plus $35 for a refraction he didnt need or ask for. His primary care doctor charged him $73 to look at his sore throat on Jan. 28. Jake was puzzled. He had Medicare and Medigap insurance, so why was he being charged? He called the Medigap company, UHARP, and was told, We dont actually do insurance. We farm it out to the XYZ Healthcare Co. Jake dialed the XYZ phone number, and spoke to a lady in Pakistan who told him, You bean billed for Medicare deductible, Meester Jake. Wassa mattah fo you? Jack phoned Medicare and was told by a taped voice, Your call is important to us. It may be recorded for quality, or just for the heck of it. Please stay on the line. Jake phoned his girl friend, Ellie, and whined to her. She said, Just pay the #!@!! bills, Jake! So he did. HOMER AND HONEY. For several years, Homer loved only two things: his girl Honey, and the music of the BeeGees. A dozen times a year, or more, Honey bought Homer a new BeeGees album, or an old one. They held hands and sang along to Stayin Alive, Jive Talkin and other BeeGees hit songs. It was a beautiful love affair. But then Homer got careless. He developed the hots for a dark-haired waitress at a Tampa steakhouse. Someone tipped off Honey, who was furious. She went to Homers apartment and attacked his CD collection. She stripped the shelves of every BeeGee recording, and took them with her. When Homer returned, he saw what had happened, and knew that he had lost the love of his life. He mourned her for years thereafter. Moral: You never miss your Honey until the BeeGees are gone. THE CROW AND THE SPANIEL. A crow born in New Jersey got tired of the cold winters. So he flew south and landed in a field in Pasco County. The field, loaded with corn and gluten, was owned by Oscar Parmer, a retired cross-examiner. His 8-year-old daughter Pookie loved to play in the corn field with her spaniel Manuel. One day Pookie and Manuel met the crow. Manuel, who watched a lot of TV cop shows, said to the crow, You are trespassing. We demand identification. The crow said, I left my wallet up north, in Parsippany. I cannot prove who I am, so I am at your mercy, since you apparently own this corn field and like to throw your weight around. The spaniel Manuel said, Would you agree to submit to a DNA test? The crow said, Yes, of course, and allowed Manuel to pluck a small feather from his wing. Pookie mailed the feather to the Parsippany, N.J., police department, for testing. A week later the police sent this email to Manuel: Your crow is a defrocked Episcopalian priest named Locksley. He has been found guilty of preaching dull sermons. When notified of this, the crow wept copiously and said, I knew my past would one day catch up with me. Pookie and Manuel said, Fear not. We will enroll you in our clergy protection program. They all lived happily ever after, and moved to Bradenton, where Pookie opened a bed-and-breakfast inn for manatees.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Obamacare: Just magical thinkingShould Congress repeal Obamacare? If you had asked that before the botched Affordable Care Act rollout, I would have had a hard time answering yes. I didnt see how the scheme could work, but I also believed that Washington owed the millions of Americans who I was told had been waiting desperately for years for guaranteed health care. Now I say, Whats in a name? Theres no need for a repeal when Washington is bound to revamp the law. The reason: Consumers arent buying it. According to the White House, more than 6 million people have signed onto Obamacare exchanges. Problem: The law kicked close to 5 million Americans off their private health care plans. Also, the administration says it doesnt know how many new plan members actually are paying their premiums, so that 6 million figure could be highly inflated. At best, more than 1 million extra Americans got new private coverage, while 5 million individual policyholders got kicked off their old plans. Some wont have access to the doctors they were promised they could keep. For many, the new plans are less affordable than their old plans. Industry graybeard Robert Laszewski found that many exchange providers are just re-enrolling their old customers at higher rates. Call it the Less Affordable Care Act. Individuals who qualify for federal subsidies probably will pay lower premiums, but only because taxpayers are subsidizing their plans. How is that more affordable for America? Obamacare also expanded Medicaid coverage for 7 million uninsured Americans. Thing is, President Barack Obama didnt need to upend the private market in order to expand Medicaid coverage. The same goes for the highly popular but utterly nonsensical provicant sign up for Obamacare. Youre signing up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. Its private insurance. The private market has had many drawbacks but one salvation: Until Obamacare, people were free to refuse to pay for a bad deal. Months ago, reader Bob Duste of Glen Ellen, Calif., wrote to tell me that under Obamacare, his premiums had doubled while his deductible went up by 25 percent. His family can take the hit, he wrote, but he was disillusioned with the efficacy of most government programs that end up being forced upon the unwilling as opposed to a last resort for the downtrodden and truly indigent. Simply put, the Democrats didnt know what they were doing, but that didnt stop them from forcing their magical thinking on people who didnt want it.Email Debra J.

As of March 6, the volunteers had logged nearly 350 miles of use on the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail. Pinellas Trails Inc. president Bert Valery of Indian Rocks Beach and vice president Scott Daniels of Clearwater provided Pinellas County Commissioners with an update on the groups activities at the April 1 meeting. Daniels told commissioners that the volunteer groups mission was and had always been part of the public-private partnership with the county. They are already making plans to celebrate the Trails 25th anniversary in 2015. The Trail, next to the beach, is the second most popular (county attraction), Scott said. The volunteer group allows citizens to get involved in taking care of the trail and in providing extra amenities the county cant afford. He said they also are involved in Trail safety via the Safety and Security Task Force. He said 100 volunteer auxiliary rangers, working with the countys Parks and Conservation Resources Department, help patrol the 38mile trail to keep it clean and keep it safe. To assist them with that mission, Pinellas Trails Inc. has donated an electric cart to use on the trail. We hope to do more donations in the future, Scott said. The Pinellas Trail is a very special park in our county. We most sincerely thank you, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. Valery talked about the need for funds to complete the trail. This has been a 30-year process and it is not done, he said. He requested that more Penny for Pinellas money be allocated toward Trail construction to finish what more than 90,000 people now enjoy each month. Id like to get this done while Im alive, the 74-year-old told commissioners. Valery was instrumental in creation of the Trail through his work on a MPO committee after a vehicle killed his son while he was riding his bicycle home from work. Seel said she had met with Duke Energy about a funding agreement to finish the Duke Energy Trail, which connects a portion of the Pinellas Trail. I hope to have a signed trail agreement by the end of the month, she said. She explained that due to the downturn in the economy in 2008, staff had to redo the budget for projects being paid for with Penny money. I fought to keep the money in, but was not successful, Seel said. She said the MPO was applying for a federal TIGER grant in hopes to get funding to finish the trail loop in north county to complete the trail from East Lake to St. Petersburg. Valery said he didnt have much confidence in a TIGER grant. Youve lost on that twice already, he said. Were working on it, Seel said. Cold fronts bringing gale force windsCold fronts are nothing new to April; its known for being a windy month. But I cant remember a year when each passing front brought two days of gale force winds. Surely by Thursday we will be looking at winds under 10 mph, but by then the damage will be done. By damage I mean dirty water and displaced bait and the fish that pursue them. Realistically it will take till Saturday for the water to clean up enough for the bait to gather. Patterns will need to re-establish and with improving tides later into the weekend we should see a couple of excellent fishing days before the next cold front comes through. Kingfish inched there way closer to shore by last weekend. Plenty of fish in the 10to 15-pound range were hanging over hardbottom areas within a couple of miles off shore. Anchoring and fishing with live pilchards while running a fresh chum block lead to multiple hook-ups from fish this size. If youre targeting bigger fish try using bigger baits such as live shad, mullet or ladyfish. Inshore fishing was really good mid-week last week and became progressively slower as we got into the weekend. Slow-moving tides were to blame for the decline in action. As we look toward this upcoming week we see those full moon tides start to take hold and we should see the fishing get hot again. Oyster mounds at high tide have been holding good numbers of redfish and a few snook. Live bait fishing with pilchards, also known as whitebait, can be exciting, but sometimes not as effective as a fresh cut bait either ladyfish or shad, placed right along the outer edge of the bar. Trout fishing remains strong as numbers of fish are holding along spoils island drop-offs. Sand/ shell bottom is the preferred habitat of the spawning sized trout. Free-lining live pilchards uptide and letting them swing through the zone is a slam-dunk when the fish are turned on.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotma il.com.

GardeningDuring spring and summer on Florida beaches, shorebirds build nests out of sand and shells, and hatch chicks that can barely be seen. So well camouflaged are the nests, eggs and chicks of shorebirds, such as the snowy plover, they can easily be stepped on or missed unless people know to watch out for them. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is reminding beachgoers to be on the lookout and avoid disturbing bird nurseries on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida. Among the states beach-nesting shorebirds facing conservation challenges are the snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer, American oystercatcher and Wilsons plover. By taking a few simple steps, people can enjoy the beach without disturbing beachnesting shorebirds and their chicks, which increases the birds chances of survival, said Nancy Douglass, who works on shorebird conservation at the FWC. While the populations of beach-nesting birds are declining, peoples willingness to protect shorebirds and their chicks contributes to keeping them present on Florida beaches for generations to come, Douglass said. People at the beach, including those paddling canoes, kayaks and boards along the shore, can help beach-nesting shorebirds by following basic guidelines: Keep your distance. If birds become agitated or leave their nests, you are too close. A general rule is to stay at least 300 feet from a nest. Birds calling out loudly and dive-bombing are giving signals you need to back off. Never intentionally force birds to fly or run. They use up energy they need for nesting, and eggs and chicks may be left vulnerable to the suns heat and to predators. Respect posted areas. Avoid posted nesting sites and use designated walkways when possible. Its best not to take pets to the beach, but if you do, keep them on a leash. Keep the beach clean and do not feed wildlife. Food scraps attract predators such as raccoons and crows. Litter on beaches can entangle birds and other wildlife. Spread the word. If you see people disturbing nesting birds, gently let them know how their actions may hurt the birds survival. If they continue to disturb nesting birds, report their activities to the FWCs Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on your cell phone or by texting Tip@MyFWC.com. You also can report nests that are not posted to Wildlife Alert. Wildlife photographers also should follow the rules that protect beach-nesting shorebirds: Remain behind the posted area, with no part of you or your camera equipment extending beyond the string or signs. Dont exceed 10 minutes. Too much time photographing near the nest may stress the birds. Dont push birds around the beach. Stay far enough away so the birds do not change their behavior in response to your presence. They need to feed and rest without disturbance. Visit MyFWC.com/Shorebirds and download the Share the Beach with Beach-Nesting Birds brochure, or visit the Florida Shorebird Alliance at www.flshorebirdalliance.org. demonstration areas and learn how to grow food in home gardens.

Designed for individuals 55 and older, this adult day care program offers a variety of classes and activities to keep attendees mentally and physically engaged despite any health issues they might have. Activities include everything from music and the arts to discussions of current events to fitness and games. We do everything to keep them out of institutionalized care, said Stephanie Sessions, executive director at PACE. Our goal is to keep them in action, keep them healthy. Available to those on Medicaid and some on Medicare, PACE is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until about 5 p.m. Members of the program can come as many or as few times a week as theyd like. Studies show that lonely seniors have a 14 percent higher death rate than those who are not, which is why PACEs program is so important, Sessions said. But its so much more than simply a social outlet, she stressed. PACE has an onsite, full medical clinic, so participants can receive all of their medical care, including physical therapy, at the facility. Theres always access to nurses and physicians, Sessions said. Staff also assists participants with laundry, shopping, transportation and even personal hygiene, if necessary, and also will send help into members homes on their days off from the program as needed. Currently, there are about 160 seniors in the program, which has the capacity for around 200, Sessions said. For those who attend, the program is a lifesaver. They do so many good things here, said Gary Grimm, who joined the program after learning about it from a friend. And the medical staff is phenomenal. It is absolutely wonderful, said Laurie Maccorquadale, who knew PACE would be a great fit for her before she ever walked through the door. I dont like the weekends because theyre not open and I just sit at home and watch TV all day. PACE saved my life; it saved my sanity. Nelson proposes alternative Medicaid expansion planWASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is asking federal health officials to consider an emerging idea that would still allow Florida to expand its Medicaid program to some 1.2 million lowincome residents. An idea is to involve public hospitals, which serve many of the states low-income or indigent patients, in providing some of their revenue in place of state funding for Medicaid expansion, Nelson said in a media release. Congress already has given all the states an opportunity to expand Medicaid. In Florida, that would mean coverage for the estimated 1.2 million Floridians, which would bring some $51 billion in federal dollars back into the state over the next decade. But the Republican-controlled state Legislature last year refused to consider an expansion of the program. And so far this year, Gov. Rick Scott is still ignoring the issue while state legislative leaders are once again failing to consider it, Nelson said. While the idea of alternative funding whichwould involve the use of a so-called intergovernmental transfer is still in the discussion phase among some Florida hospital and health industry officials, Nelson has asked the head of CMS to be open-minded if such a plan is to go further. ... A locally financed plan is worth formal consideration and I will continue to work with interested parties to encourage the state to officially offer such a plan, Nelson wrote in a letter to Marilyn Tavenner, the head of the federal governments Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Ultimately, any plan to expand Medicaid would have to be negotiated between CMS and state leaders. Under the initial Medicaid proposal rejected by the state, the federal government would have paid the full cost of expansion for the first three years and then pared that down to 90 percent. Nelson and many business and civic leaders in Florida have argued that accepting some $51 billion in federal funds to expand Medicaid would not only have provided health coverage for the additional 1.2 million residents, but also would have created jobs and reduced the burden on taxpayers who pick up the tab when higher-cost emergency rooms are used to treat people in need of only primary care.

Dental Care of Largo to offer cancer screeningsLARGO In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Amir Daoud and the team at Dental Care of Largo will offer free oral cancer screenings on Saturday, April 19, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the dental office, 1511 Indian Rocks Road, Largo. Oral cancer is an extremely common disease, and more than 43,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with oral cancer every year.

No large tents may be set up under any circumstances.2014 headlinersAt age 77, Buddy Guy is a living legend. Hes a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and he was a major influence on rock icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Guy was a pioneer of Chicagos fabled West Side sound and he remains a living link to that citys halcyon days of electric blues. Over the years, Guy has earned six Grammy Awards along with an impressive 28 Blues Music Awards. In 2013, Guy released Rhythm & Blues, his 27th studio album. The recording features 21 tracks, which boast contributions from a variety of guest artists, such as Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Brad Whitford of Aerosmith and guitar wizard Gary Clark Jr. Michael McDonald has been a prominent part in the soundtrack to our times, as his biography states on his Facebook page. McDonald, as an artist and songwriter, has collected five Grammy Awards. With his husky baritone and distinctive keyboard style, he has been entertaining audiences with his own brand of blue-eyed soul for more than three decades. He first attained popularity as the Doobie Brothers lead singer, writing and singing such hits as Takin It To The Streets, Real Love and the No.1, What A Fool Believes. After leaving the band in 1982, he continued to top the charts with songs such as I Keep Forgettin (Every Time Youre Near), Sweet Freedom and On My Own. Irma Thomas is one of New Orleans most beloved and iconic entertainers. Known as the Soul Queen of New Orleans, Thomas boasts rich and resonant vocals underscored by her distinctive, soulful and directfrom-the-heart delivery. Born in 1941, she is a contemporary of Aretha Franklin and Etta James. Her 2006 album After the Rain won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. She followed it up with Simply Grand in 2008.Full festival lineupBoasting a state-of-the-art sound system, this years festival promises to be one of the biggest events on the Tampa Bay music scene.

Todd Rundgren, Sunday, April 13, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. This will be Rundgrens first concert at the Capitol Theatre since his sold-out show in November 2011. The title of Rundgrens 1973 solo album A Wizard, A True Star aptly sums up the contributions of this multi-faceted artist to state-of-the-art music. As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and, most recently, interactive artist, Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Rundgren began playing guitar as a teenager, going on to found and front The Nazz, the quintessential `60s cult group. In 1969, he left the band to pursue a solo career, recording his debut offering, the legendary Runt. But it was 1972s seminal Something/Anything?, on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts and acted as his own producer, that catapulted Rundgren into the superstar limelight. The Zombies Saturday, April 12, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49.50. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The second U.K. group following the Beatles to score a No. 1 hit in America, The Zombies infiltrated the airwaves with the sophisticated melodies, breathy vocals, choral back-up harmonies and jazzy keyboard riffs of their 1960s hit singles like Shes Not There and Tell Her No. Ironically, the group broke-up in 1968 just prior to achieving their greatest success, the chart-topping single Time of the Season, from their swan-song album Odessey & Oracle.

It is a collection of extraordinary monologues written by the mysteriously pseudonymous Jane Martin. These 11 monologues make up an evening of idiosyncratic characters who amuse, move, and frighten, always speaking from their souls, and range from a baton twirler who has found God through twirling, a fundamentalist snake handler, an ex-rodeo rider crowded out of the life she has cherished by a man in three-piece suits who wants her to dress up like Mini Damn Mouse in a tutu, an actress willing to go to any length to get a job, to an old woman whose dream is to live in McDonalds. Air Supply, Saturday, April 19, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $59. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Multi-platinum recording artist Air Supply will perform in concert in the intimate Capitol Theatre. Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia, where they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles, and of course, singing. They would play pizza parlors, coffee bars and nightclubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for the original songs that Graham constantly wrote. They made a demo of two songs, Love and Other Bruises and If You Knew Me and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one, CBS Records, who admired their unique style. Their first single shot to No. 1 on the national charts and that same year they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the United States and Canada. Returning home, they made an album, Life Support, which included Lost in Love, that went to the Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York. Davis immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Their second single, All Out of Love, went to the top of the charts even quicker. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies. Lost in Love was named Song of the Year in 1980 and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies. The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcocks soaring tenor voice and Graham Russells simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as Air Supply.

TOP FIVE, from page 1BOpening this weekendReitman directs Draft Day, starring Costner; Gillan faces supernatural forces in Oculus Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Draft DayGenre: Comedy and sports Cast: Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Ellen Burstyn, Denis Leary, Frank Langella, Chadwick Boseman and Sean Combs Director: Ivan Reitman Rated: PG-13 On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what hes willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.OculusGenre: Horror Cast: Karen Gillan, Katee Sackhoff, Brenton Thwaites, James Lafferty, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso, Garretty Ryan, Kate Siegel, Katie Parker and Miguel Sandoval Director: Mike Flanagan Rated: R Tragedy struck the Russell family 10 years ago, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tims innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century. With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again.Rio 2Genre: Animation and comedy Cast: Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, will.i.am, Jemaine Clement, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Jamie Foxx, Andy Garcia, Rita Moreno, Bruno Mars and Kristin Chenoweth Director: Carlos Saldanha Rated: G In Rio 2, Blu, Jewel and their family are living the perfect domesticated life in the city. Their offspring include Bia (voiced by Amandla Stenberg), who lives with her beak in a book and likes spouting facts and figures, just like her dad; Tiago (Pierce Gagnon) the youngest, who is always up for adventure, especially if it involves destroying something; and Carla (Rachel Crow), the eldest, a spunky teen who longs to get a little space from her protective family so she can express her musical side. When Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family venture to the Amazon. Blu tells his buddies of his travel plans, but Nico, Pedro and Luiz warn him of the myriad dangers that could lie ahead in the wild. But the ever-positive Rafael encourages Blu, reminding him that a happy wife means a happy life!The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Hateship LoveshipGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Kristen Wiig, Guy Pearce, Hailee Steinfeld and Nick Nolte Director: Liza Johnson Not rated Johanna Parry (Kristen Wiig) is a profoundly shy, unadorned woman who is hired by Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte) as a housekeeper and a primary caregiver to his granddaughter Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld). Despite her outgoing nature, Sabitha carries wounds from the death of her mother years before, complicated by the circumstances of that death for which her grandfather still blames her father, Ken (Guy Pearce), a hapless recovering drug addict with a certain ragged charm. In an act of mean-spirited rebellion, Sabitha uses technology to foster a pseudo-relationship between Johanna and her father, never dreaming of the potential harm to either party. Sabitha doesnt understand that Johanna is not a demure cut-out, but rather a woman for whom the phrase still waters run deep could have been coined. The young girls interference provokes Johanna to indulge in something long missing from her life: the dream of a future and a home of her own.JoeGenre: Drama Cast: Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan Director: David Gordon Green Rated: R A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Browns novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Directed by David Gordon Green, the film brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hottempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble until he meets a hard-luck kid played by Tye Sheridan who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.Only Lovers Left AliveGenre: Horror and romance Cast: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright Director: Jim Jarmusch Rated: R Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but her wild and uncontrollable younger sister soon disrupts their debauched idyll. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?The Railway ManGenre: Drama Cast: Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Irvine, Stellan Skarsgard, Sam Reid, Tanroh Ishida and Hiroyuki Sanada Director: Jonathan Teplitzky Rated: R Based on the remarkable bestselling autobiography, The Railway Man tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labor camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax and his beautiful love interest Patti (Nicole Kidman) discover that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and set out to confront him, and his haunting past, in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Birchwood recently signed with Alligator Records. In 2013, Birchwood catapulted from local hero to shooting star. He won the world-renowned International Blues Challenge, beating out 125 other bands from the United States and abroad. He also took home the Albert King Guitarist Of The Year Award. This June, Alligator Records will release Birchwoods new album, Dont Call No Ambulance. It is described as a fully realized vision of contemporary blues. According to a press release from Alligator Records, Birchwoods original songs range from raucous romps to hill country stomps, from searing, serious slow blues to modern blues-rock. Coco Montoya is a self-taught guitar slinger who plays with an emotional intensity few string benders possess. Playing left-handed and upside down like Albert King, Montoya learned his guitar techniques from his years with legendary bluesman Albert Collins. I never had a lesson in my life, Montoya says in his biography provided by Intrepid Artists. I would watch other guitar play-Sculpture selected for art installation in GulfportGULFPORT Artist Stephen Oliver recently was selected as the winner of the Gulfport Merchants Associations competition for a work of public art adjacent to the Gulfport Casino. Olivers sculpture proposal, titled Best Kept Secret, reflects on Gulfports history and the spirits of diversity and creativity that characterize the city today according to a press release. It also celebrates the openness of a once-segregated community that continues to grow to accept everyone, Oliver said in the press release. The sculpture will be situated adjacent to the Gulfport Casino, an Art Deco styled public hall that is a Gulfport icon and has served as a community gathering place since the turn of the century. The casino was recently approved for addition to the list of National Historic Landmarks. Olivers sculpture will consist of a metal boat in a raised position at eye level so that visitors can read the poetry cut into its port and starboard sides. The lines will read To cross the gulf be our port of call leaving a wake of peace and love for all and All hands together joined to row make rainbows of gauntlet as they go. The sculpture also incorporates a keyhole in the stern of the boat, through which one can view a rainbow of painted colors and reflecting colored glass elements on the interior. The stern of the boat is also shaped like the faade of the casino and serves as a palette for a painting of the colored peoples dance pavilion to reflect how the community has evolved to become an inclusive one since the days of segregation. Oliver found an image of the old pavilion on the Gulfport Historical Societys website. The boats tall mast-like weathervane, situated beside the boat, reflects the themes of peace and love in the poetry cut into the boats hull and incorporates sculptural elements intended to resemble Gulfports initials G-P. Oliver is known by many Gulfport locals and visitors as the designer and vendor of the graphic Give Peace shirts and other garments he sells at Gulfports Tuesday Fresh Market. He has a background in architecture and furniture design, and has worked with numerous museums and artists in coordinating and designing projects, residencies, exhibitions and public art as well as making his own art. Oliver has a degree in architecture from New Jersey Institute of Technology and a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design. He lives part of the year in Maine. His family has local roots in St. Petersburg, where his father and other family members still live. His grandfather, Henry Oliver Sr., was a prolific builder whose wife ran their small produce market in St. Petersburg. Grandpa Oliver also helped lay the brick streets of Gulfport during a building boom that started in 1923 and ended in the Great Depression. Oliver expects to begin work on the sculpture immediately, with final installation and dedication ceremony planned for this summer. The Gulfport Merchants Association selected Olivers work after a national call for artists that resulted in more than a dozen entries. Proceeds from Gecko Fest and other events sponsored by the GMA are funding the public art commission.

James Hunter was born in 1962 into a workingclass family in Colchester, Essex, in England. It wasnt quite like growing up with the blues in Alabama, but in my part of England, anywhere south of Watford would be considered Alabama, he says in his biography. In the States, youve got the Mason-Dixon Line and in England, weve got the Watford Gap. Hunters earliest musical influences came from a collection of old 78 rpm records of s rock n roll and rhythm and blues. Hunters grandmother gave him the collection. His older brother taught him to play guitar. His most fifth studio album, Minute by Minute, was released in 2013.Palladium to host After ShowsA series of Tampa Bay Blues Festival After Shows will be presented Friday and Saturday, April 11-12, at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

Alligator Records Tommy Castro And The Painkillers recently released The Devil You Know, Castros first full length studio release since 2009. The Devil You Know is also Castros first album featuring his new lean and mean stripped down four-piece band, The Painkillers. The 13-track CD featuring nine songs written or co-written by Castro showcases a looser, grittier, down and dirty side of Castros signature blend of hard hitting blues, rock and Memphis soul that harkens back to the days when he started playing as a teenager. Castro is a multiple Blues Music Award winner, most notably for his 2009 Alligator debut, Hard Believer. In 2010, Castro won four Blues Music Awards including, for the second time in his career, the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year Award, and, for his whole group, Band Of The Year. He also picked up Contemporary Blues Album of the Year and Contemporary Blues Male Artist of the Year.

The latest installment from the Marvel Studios bullpen now quite comfortable beneath the Walt Disney Pictures umbrella is no exception. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is yet another solid chapter in the sprawling Marvel Universe, bursting at the seams with deftly orchestrated action sequences, high-tech gear, noisy explosions and bone-crunching brawls. What sets it apart, however, is its clever criticism of the contemporary military-industrial complex and, in particular, government-sanctioned surveillance of its own citizens. The sequel to 2011s Captain America: The First Avenger is arguably the most ambitious film in the franchise to date. The story charts a darker course than most Marvel films, tackling timely political issues in a style that evokes 1970s conspiracy thrillers such as The Parallax View, The Kremlin Letter and Three Days of the Condor. Perhaps to reinforce that stylistic connection, Robert Redford who played CIA employee Joe Turner in Three Days of the Condor was cast in the pivotal role of Alexander Pierce, a high-ranking official at the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. As the movie opens, Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, is continuing to adapt to living in the 21st century and still working for S.H.I.E.L.D. He is tapped to lead an operation to save a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel that has been captured by Algerian pirates. During the mission, he learns fellow agent Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, has been given a separate objective: He discovers her extracting data from the ships computers. Rogers who feels he should have been briefed on Romanoffs task confronts his boss, Nick Fury. Sensing Rogers growing wariness with his employer, Fury reveals to Rogers the project S.H.I.E.L.D. is finalizing: Three heavily armed helicarrier gunships, linked to spy satellites and designed to preemptively eliminate threats, are being prepared to launch. Fury believes the program will ensure stability and security; Rogers, being the old school patriot he is, believes security isnt worth the price of freedom. Dont worry, though: The political science lesson isnt overemphasized. There are well-placed speeches here and there, but Captain America: The Winter Soldier maintains a brisk pace and the action sequences far outnumber the encapsulated ideological proclamations. Things really get moving when Fury often perceived as untouchable in Marvel films comes under fire in a suspenseful sequence that expands into a gritty, urban warfare tableau. The situation degenerates further as it becomes clear that no one at S.H.I.E.L.D. can be trusted. Captain America and Black Widow have a mystery to solve: Who infiltrated the organization and what needs to be done to stop them from gaining control of those helicarriers that can be used to wipe out entire cities. Add to the fun a new ally, the Falcon, and a new villain, the Winter Soldier, and youve got a sequel that is as good as its predecessor maybe even better. Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers/Captain America. Hes clearly comfortable in the role at this point, and his portrayal gives fans a hero that clings to a form of 1940s incorruptible purity without seeming self-righteous. Scarlett Johansson is equally credible as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. Unlike Rogers, Romanoff is a hardcore cynic. Johansson delivers plenty of sarcastic jibes but never lets the character lose her compassion. The relationship between the two characters depicted in spurts of mundane banter helps establish their sincerity and makes them more identifiable as individuals. Anthony Mackie joins the Marvel Universe as Sam Wilson/Falcon. He seems a perfect fit for Captain Americas staunch ally and friend, and it is clear from their first interaction that the two actors want to show that the characters are on equal footing, even though Rogers might be the one with super powers: This is no hero-and-sidekick arrangement. Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as Nick Fury. Jackson is given so much screen time one wonders if the character is destined for a solo project of his own. The actor epitomizes the character. Seriously, its difficult to imagine anyone else playing the part. There are plenty of other excellent performances from outstanding actors, including Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and, of course, Redford. Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Captain America: The Winter Soldier boldly stands on its own merits. This film is neither filler to appease genre fans zealously awaiting next summers Avengers: Age of Ultron, nor a convenient bridge constructed specifically to set up future productions. That said, by the time the credits are rolling, the script has revealed a few story threads some obvious, some less noticeable that will undoubtedly reemerge in subsequent Marvel franchise properties. Besides being a captivating superhero adventure film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier offers audiences an edgier story and a deeper appraisal of patriotism. Captain America faces a formidable foe in the Winter Soldier, but Rogers simultaneously realizes the team hes fighting for isnt as noble as he once believed. Its easy to make a superhero film that tests the strength and resolve of its protagonist; not so easy to make one that challenges his basic principles. The ill-planned S.H.I.E.L.D. program clearly mirrors real-world intelligence gathering methods used by the National Security Agency and similar organizations. The political subtext doesnt bog down the action: Its there to lend substance to the narrative and, perhaps, provoke discussion not to serve as some kind of subversive manifesto. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is surprisingly well executed. Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have managed to craft a superhero film that will doubtlessly please diehard Marvel fans as well as an action-packed political thriller, designed to appeal to wider audiences.

TORRESLARGO After reviewing a favorable audit of the previous years finances April 8, Largo commissioners discussed the citys major projects proposed for the next five years, projected to cost almost $130 million. The projects include things like an upgrade to the city website but also delineates plans for the city to replace and maintain its infrastructure. Assistant City Manager Mike Staffopoulos explained that the city had begun to take a holistic approach to replacing and renovating its buildings, roads and utility structures. In the past, most of the time, weve done this on a reactive-type basis; weve waited until we see a problem emerge and we go out and we fix that problem, he said. Instead, the city wants to assess everything it maintains. Using the Trotter Road project as an example, Staffopoulos said that while the city could just reconstruct the road itself, it made sense to consider the sanitary sewer lines that run underneath it, any wet weather systems and drainage associated with it and the condition of the adjacent sidewalks. We realized that there was a lot of overlap with regards to our asset management that we need to look at (from) a 50,000-foot elevation to make sure that were putting them all in the right prioritization, he explained. A proactive approach calls for the city to conduct studies to determine what needs to be upgraded and then prioritize plans for replacing or renovating city assets. Weve started on the smaller things like computer servers and vehicles, where weve been able to place them into replacement cycles before they actually fall apart or cost too much to maintain,Four arrested in attackCommunity reaches out to help 84-year-old victim By SUZETTE PORTERPINELLAS PARK An 84-year-old Pinellas Park man is recovering from his injuries, and the three teens that attacked him are in custody. Police arrested a fourth suspect Monday afternoon. Thanks to the generosity of three local businesses, Charles Clark has new locks on his home and his vehicle. Clark returned home from the store the morning of April 1 and parked on 76th Avenue. When he exited his vehicle, three teenage assailants attacked him from behind. He tried to fight off the attackers, knocking one to the ground. One pulled a knife and he was stabbed more than once in the arm. A passerby saw the attack and ran to Clarks aid. The unnamed Good Samaritan scared the teens away, and they fled the scene on bicycles. Area schools were placed on lockdown while Pinellas Park K-9 units searched the area with the assistance of PCSO air support. The teens were not found. Clark was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released. He told police he thought the teens were trying to steal his car, according to Sgt. Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park police public information officer. That night, his car was stolen sometime between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. from in front of his home on 76th Avenue. Police recovered it that morning in south St. Petersburg. They also released videos of two of the suspects riding bicycles near crime scene and asked the publics help to identify two black males and one Hispanic female. Geissenberger announced later that afternoon that police had identified one of the three suspects. Police took AntonioAn arsenal of humorStand-up comedian G. David Howard, 75, has been collecting jokes for decades ... and isnt about to stop By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO G. David Howard is not your typical comedian. The author of a recently published political memoir has been telling jokes for a living for more than four decades. He was recognized in the Guinness World Book of Records for 16 hours of stand-up without so much as a bathroom break. He started his career in Ohio, of all places, before comedy clubs were even popular and later was a staple performer in Las Vegas for five years. He once raised a pet mountain lion, who made appearances on stage and in the club he owned at the time. Hes played with professional baseball players during spring training, just because they liked him. He collects jokes like baseball cards, drawers filled with binders of hundreds of thousands of jokes, much to his wifes dismay. At 75, the comedian, whose friends call him just by G, isnt about to slow down. Im funnier right now than Ive ever been in my career, he said. Ill retire when I cant make people laugh anymore. Howard lives in Largo with his wife of 50 years, Dana. He has a regular show at Leos Italian Grill in Palm Harbor on most Saturdays, at exactly 9:01 p.m., though he recently pushed the start time back to 9:02 p.m., due to seasonal traffic, he said. His focus for the last couple of years has been a politically charged book entitled, Half of America Is Nuts and They were Allowed To Vote. The selfdescribed right-wing conservative said he wrote the book for independent thinkers stubbornly against forming a group. But he wanted the book to be funny to all political leanings, so he tested it out on his liberal friends to make sure they were still laughing at the jokes as they read it. They told me, The bad thing is youre serious about this stuff, Howard said. And theyre laughing and giggling at it, so I knew I was on the right track.Born to tell jokesHowards career as a comedian started in high Photos by JIM LAYFIELD Photo by JULIANA A.

The schools seniors had built banks of snow near the entrance to the teacher parking lot off Missouri Avenue. Teachers who came from the north really appreciated the prank as it reminded them of all the snow they miss shoveling each day especially this blizzard-bound winter, explained Deb Howard, secretary of the schools ExCEL magnet program. It was great because it didnt accidentally cause any damage and would dissolve before our school day ended. The snow was packed to allow entry into the parking lot. A local skating rink is rumored to have helped the seniors. It was a great prank and next years seniors have a high bench mark to surpass, Howard said.

Pictured at below right is Howard with his pet mountain lion. PROJECTS, from page 1AStaffopoulos said. But moving forward, city staff would be considering larger projects: assessing the condition of Largos roads, considering the expansion of the sidewalk system and, as was discussed in the commissioners work session last month, developing a master plan for the reclaimed water system. The citys forgotten utility has been in the ground for almost 30 years and is potentially due for some major work, Staffopoulos said. The city was working on an investigation of the system. There may be some policy decisions as to whether we expand or retract reclaimed (water) based on the information we find out, Staffopoulos said. To offset future costs, the city has proposed a 15 percent increase to the wastewater fee next year and in the fiscal year 2019. An analysis of the stormwater system is a more pressing issue, Staffopoulos said. The city is proposing a $500,000 study of its canals, ditches, roadside swales, culverts, drainage structures, ponds and treatment units in next years budget. To help fund the study and the infrastructure upgrades, staff is proposing a 25 percent stormwater fee increase for four years starting in fiscal year 2016, meaning that by fiscal year 2019, the fee will have doubled. The stormwater fund is not self-supporting for all stormwater needs, said budget manager Amy Davis. Many of the infrastructure upgrades to date have been paid for with Penny for Pinellas funds. Davis said that lots of other communities had stormwater fees that are twice our rate. City staff also is considering how often it should replace or upgrade its buildings using new asset management software. Aside from the fee-based funds, the city is projecting a 5 percent increase in property tax revenue, achieved at least in part by an increase in the property tax rate. Staff estimated between 1 and 4 percent increase in the citys property values, but the projections are only preliminary. The only service-level increase within the general fund is the new city website and a dedicated staff person to manage it. The current site is about seven years old and long overdue for an upgrade. The city is still in the preliminary stages of discussing what functionality would serve our residents as well as how the city would allocate a staff person to maintain it, Davis explained. IT Director Harold Schomaker said his department had every intention to bring the site up to current standards, including using HTML5 formats. We will be changing all of the look and feel to more modern techPeterson, 16, into custody that evening. He was charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon. His brother, Xavier Peterson, 13, approached Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies to turn himself in around 11:35 p.m. April 2. Under questioning by Pinellas Park police, he admitted to taking Clarks car, but denied taking part in the attack. He was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle. The third suspect, Jazmine Burney, 15, was arrested April 3. No details of her arrest were made available. Pinellas Park police announced Monday, April 7, that St. Petersburg Police Department Career Offender Unit had arrested Marquez Dunbar, 20, of St. Petersburg about 4:30 p.m. He was charged with violation of probation for carjacking and armed robbery. Dunbar was released from prison Nov. 11, 2013, after serving three years for two counts of carjacking and one count of resisting an officer with violence.Help from local businessesAfter hearing about Clarks troubles, three Pinellas Park businesses stepped up to lend a hand, Geissenberger said. Renny Beatch from Johns Key Shop changed the locks at his home. Robert Yoho from YoHos towing transported his vehicle to Walker Ford. The dealership repainted the vehicles hood where it was damaged, replaced the locks and filled it with gas. Pinellas Park PD posted the news and photos on its Facebook page where a number of people posted comments, including Its good to see that there are still some good people out there. I hope all three of those juvenile delinquents pay dearly. My heart broke when I saw his face all bruised and battered God bless you, Mr. Clark, praying for a speedy recovery for you. Awesome work by all involved. What a great community to live in. Terrible event, but what a wonderful outpouring by the community. Photo courtesy of PINELLAS PARK PDVivid bruises appear on Charles Clarks face the day after he was attacked. Clark chats with Renny Beatch from Johns Key Shop in Pinellas Park, who replaced the lock on his front door April 2. Clark was beaten and stabbed in an attack April 1. His vehicle was stolen that night and has since been recovered. YoHos Collision Center towed the vehicle without charge to Walker Ford where it received a free lock change and more. ATTACK, from page 1A COMEDIAN, from page 1Aschool in Ohio. He had developed a reputation as a funny guy before starting as a 10th grader at the school but thought he might be in trouble when he was first called to the principals office. In fact, the principal invited him to open a full-school assembly every Tuesday morning with a funny, 5-10 minute monologue in front of 1,300 students. Howard happily accepted the gig. So I was pretty accustomed to being in front of people and talking, he said. As an adult, working as a Nationwide insurance agent, he began to put a stand-up act together and befriend other entertainers, usually singers and musicians who would invite him on stage as 15-minute comedic relief to their show. After about a year, he landed his first paid gig, on Dec. 31, 1973 in Centerville, Ohio. Performing a New Years Eve show was daunting, but Howard felt well prepared. There werent any comedy clubs in the Mid-West at the time, so to book his own act, he had to convince hotels, lounges and clubs to forgo a band and give a comedian a chance to entertain their customers. It was an uphill climb just to get booked, Howard said. He kept his day job until he started developing a following, and his district manager noticed an ad for his show in a local newspaper. We cant have that. Its not the image we want, Howard remembered the man saying, giving him the choice of his steady job or budding comedic career. He tried to argue that his production had not been affected, but the manager would have nothing of it. I was born to this. I have to do it, he said. So Howard quit, then and there. He was married and had four young sons, but he promised Dana he would make it work. He found a job unloading trucks late at night after his comedy gigs. Then in 1975, he got a big break. He was performing in Dayton, Ohio, when he met a man who said he was a Marine buddy of Woody Woodbury, one of Howards comedic idols. The man was so impressed with Howard, that he gave him Woodburys home phone number. Woodbury, who ran a night club in Fort Lauderdale, advised Howard that the west coast of Florida was devoid of good comics and gave him the number of the biggest booking agency in the state. By May 23, 1975, Howard had a one-week contract to perform at the Witches Brew Lounge in Naples. He ended up working there 53 consecutive weeks. They were lined up out in the parking lot trying to get in. They had never heard anything like what I do in that town, Howard said. Word spread quickly, so I had a very successful run there. His next move was to the Hilton in Clearwater Beach. He started with a four-week contract and stayed for five years, working six nights a week. After the Hilton was sold, Howard bought a place across the street on Bayway Boulevard and called it G. Davids. He later moved the club to a Ramada Inn, leasing the food and beverage operation from the hotel. He moved back to Fort Meyers to open what he called the Comedy Cafe. While he was there, the man in charge of booking comedians into the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana Las Vegas saw his act and invited him to perform in January 1992. Howard began performing twice a year in Las Vegas and then once a month. I just fell in love with the west, and the mountains and the dessert. I liked it a lot. I liked the energy of the city. The wife liked it, so we sold everything here and moved out there, Howard said.Long-form comedyHoward said he had a nice, five-year run in Las Vegas, playing a different club along the strip each week. He was used to being a one-man show, performing from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. each night. His first experience in an actual comedy club, sharing the stage with other comedians who were far more casually dressed, he noted was his first show at the Comedy Stop. He already has been published in the Guinness World Records for longest stand-up, going 13 hours and 47 minutes without a break at the Hilton in Clearwater. The following year, he beat his own record, starting at 10 a.m. and never repeating a joke until the club closed at 2 a.m. He didnt take a break to even visit the restroom. He was strategic in what he consumed during that time, starting with hot tea with honey and lemon for a couple of hours, switching to hot chicken broth next, then a beer until the sun set, concluding with scotch. He answered interview questions with media representatives for another 90 minutes before he finally made it to the restroom. The Guinness medical staff decided that 16 hours was far too long without a break and so, after publishing Howards feat, altered the rules of the category to include 5-minute breaks every hour. Howard said it wasnt hard to keep the jokes coming. He started collecting jokes in a six-ring binder in second grade and says he has about 10,000 stored at the ready in his brain. His wife has urged him to convert the file cabinets of jokes to electronic form to save space, which Howard said hes tried. Its overwhelming. Ive got drawers full, file drawers and file drawers, he said. Many of the younger comedians he encountered in Vegas had significantly less material, he discovered. The comedy clubs had a different format than Howard was used to, using three comedians at a time on stage in one night. The format was developed after comedy clubs exploded in the 1980s. It afforded opportunity for guys that didnt have a whole lot of material to work, he explained. These days, Howard keeps his shows between 90 minutes and two hours, advised at one point that the shorter shows require less of a time commitment from his audience, thus encouraging more repeat fans. And his jokes have gotten shorter. I used to spend a lot of time between jokes, setting them up and storytelling, he explained. Now you listen to my show, theres a roar of laughter every three seconds. I chopped (out) all the deadwood. He said he could still do a four-hour show, if the audience can stay with him. But usually, they cant. People cant laugh anymore. They sit there and hold their jaws, Howard said. Theyre looking at me, Give me a time out! They cant laugh; theyre crying.Lucky GThe Vegas strip began to lose its luster when the hotels added non-compete clauses to his contract, preventing Howard from performing anywhere else in Las Vegas for 60 days after a performance. For a while, he tried traveling in between Vegas gigs, but soon discovered that living on the road was for younger comedians. When he moved back to Florida, he and his wife operated a place called the Brewmaster Steakhouse in Indian Rocks Beach until December 2010. The restaurant employed 60 people and could sit 500 customers at a time. We did a nice business, but it was too much work for a mom-and-pop operation, he said. Howard had a run-in with the city of Indian Rocks Beach when he tried to replace his sign for the rotted sign for the restaurant. At issue, he discovered after a series of wrangling, was the name of the tiki bar, which he had dubbed Gs spot. In the end, the sign was changed to say Gs place. I dont get along well with bureaucrats, Howard said. They wont let you have a sense of humor. Howard said he wouldnt want to go back to being the boss of his own place. After 10 years there, my wife and I were just exhausted with it, he said. He sold his half to his business partner, though the restaurant didnt stay open much longer. Howard had a book in his head he wanted to write, a task he found rather time-consuming. These days, Howard performs only a few times a month. In his career, hes had offers to perform in Los Angeles and New York, but had to turn the opportunities down because they werent willing to pay him enough, if anything at all. With a mortgage and four kids, he couldnt afford not to be seen by the right people in order to become famous. I feel kind of lucky in a way, he said. Ive had a nice 40 years without becoming a big star. I had a chance to meet all these wonderful people. He doesnt envy more successful comedians. They have no time.

According to the current five-year projections, the general fund balance dips below the minimum 10 percent reserves goal for a few years as expenditures grow and revenues dont keep up. City administration will be working hard to present a proposed budget that includes both employee pay raises and acceptable fund balance levels, City Manager Mac Craig wrote in his introductory letter for the capital improvements program. The citys projection of the general fund includes the disputed reduction in EMS funds from the county. The April 8 workshop allowed commissioners to review the capital improvements program in detail. They will vote on approval of the proposed projects in an upcoming public hearing.

State legislature honors the late C.W. Bill Young with tuition bill By SUZETTE PORTERTALLAHASSEE The Florida Legislature convened March 6. As of April 2, the governor has already signed six major pieces of legislation into law, including one that honors former Pinellas County Congressman C.W. Bill Young. Gov. Rick Scott signed House Bill 7015 March 31, creating the Congressman C.W. Bill Young Tuition Waiver Program, which waives out-of-state tuition fees for honorably discharged veterans. Rep. Young represented the people in Pinellas Countys District 13 in the U.S. House of Representatives for more than 42 years before he died Oct. 18, 2013. He was well known for his work with veterans and their families. I am proud to sign H.B. 7015 that will waive out of state tuition fees for honorably discharged veterans, Scott said in a press release. I am pleased to also sign this legislation that will help our veterans find employment and expand career opportunities for veterans and their spouses. We are working to be the most military-friendly state in the nation, and this is another step to support our brave men and women who serve our nation.Sexual offendersScott signed four pieces of legislation April 1 that garnered praise from law enforcement and social service agencies throughout the state. Senate bills 522, 524, 526 and 528 provide additional protections against sexual offenders. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri joined those thanking state officials for the new legislation. We appreciate the efforts of the governor and legislature in working with and receiving input from law enforcement to craft the sexual predator/offender bills that will be signed into law today, Gualtieri said. The various pieces of legislation as a whole will not only increase accountability for sex offenders, but make Floridas communities safer through its enhanced and broadened registration requirements. SB 522 requires sheriffs to refer prisoners who are serving sentences in a county detention facility for civil commitment proceedings if those prisoners are registered sexual offenders or sexual predators and have previously committed a sexually violent offense. The legislation also adds a state attorney, law enforcement officer and victims advocate as advisory members to the multidisciplinary team that currently evaluates offenders who are considered for civil confinement. The bill expands requirements for Department of Children and Families release notifications to include the sheriff of the county in which the person intends to reside. SB 524 requires a person be defined as a sexually violent predator and be subject to civil confinement after a finding by two or more members of a multidisciplinary team. It requires higher education institutions to tell students about a sexual predators presence on campus. SB 526 increases the length of sentences for some adult-on-minor sexual offenses and prohibits incentive gain-time for offenders convicted of certain sexual offenses. The legislation suspends (tolls) post-release supervision of offenders while in DCF custody as part of the civil commitment process and requires the court to order community supervision (split sentences) after release from prison for certain sexual offenses. SB 528 requires registrants to report vehicle information, Internet identifiers, palm prints, passports, professional licenses, immigration status, volunteer work at a higher education institution and other information. The legislation strengthens current law by requiring registrants to provide information on vehicles they own and on vehicles they operate that are owned by any person who resides with the registrant. SB 528 was amended by the Judiciary Committee to increase protections against sexual offenders who may seek to avoid registration requirements by obtaining a legal name change.Vehicle registration feesScott signed Senate Bill 156 April 2. Officials say the bill will save motorists approximately $400,000 on their annual vehicle registration fees. Scott sent a letter to the tax collectors encouraging Floridians who require a registration renewal before Sept. 1 to register for one year. Pinellas Countys Tax Collector Diane Nelson removed the Photo courtesy of the GOVERNORS OFFICEGov. Rick Scott signs Senate bills 522, 524, 526 and 528 April 1 while surrounded by supporters of additional laws to protect against sexual offenders. See LEGISLATURE, page 6A

Beginning Sept. 1, registration costs will go down by $25.05 for heavyweight vehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the pending legislation and potential savings, Nelson said last month when she removed the two-year option. In 2013, 9 percent of Pinellas County residents took advantage of the biennial registration. A conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration shows that Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. Residents can still renew their registrations for two years by writing two year renewal on their registration renewal return card and double the amount to be paid. There is no cost advantage with two-year registration renewals, they are offered as a matter of convenience, Nelson said.

LEGISLATURE, from page 5AProposed Bluffs fire station draws resident protest By WAYNE AYERSBELLEAIR BLUFFS Fire stations do not belong in residential and recreational areas. Thats the message a group of Belleair Bluffs residents hope to convey to city officials when they present a petition signed by neighbors of a proposed new station to be located on city property across from city hall. The property also sits in a residential neighborhood and is close to the city park where children play, said resident Lori Spence, who is heading the petition drive. Spence said a number of residents whose homes are close to the fire station are very concerned. We are opposed to this. It is not the right location for a Largo fire station, she said in a recent interview. Spence said the residents are concerned about a decrease in their property values due to the stations presence, as well as the noise of sirens and fire trucks going back and forth, and the potential danger to children playing in the nearby playground. A number of retirees and elderly people live in the neighborhood surrounding the station site, Spence said. This is not going to be very pleasant for them with the noise and the threat of lower property values, she said. A lot of the neighbors didnt agree (with putting the station there), and the petition gives them a needed voice, she said. As she has been circulating the petition opposing the station, Spence said she has found a significant backlash among the residents. Spence believes the fire station belongs on Indian Rocks Road where the existing station sits. She wonders why the current station cannot just be renovated. That would be more cost effective, she said, and solve the problems associated with the proposed site across from city hall. Bluffs Mayor Chris Arbutine addressed some of the concerns being cited by Spence at a city commission meeting last month. The proposed station site was chosen, he said, because it is the best location to assure that emergency response times are met. As to noise concerns, Arbutine said a concrete wall to buffer the sounds has been included in every discussion weve had on the station and will be part of the plans. The sirens would not be turned on until the fire trucks reach West Bay Drive, according to the fire chief. Arbutine said the station plans have been known to residents for the past five years. Spence was asked why the residents did not protest the proposed stations location earlier. She said there was a long period of inaction after the initial talk of building a new station, and we thought that, hopefully, it was a dead deal. Spence said the whole idea of putting the station in Belleair Bluffs on the property next to city hall had been pushed along by Largo after rejecting previous sites further south on Indian Rocks Road in Largo. Putting the fire station here would be a disaster, Spence said. Weve looked at this very closely, she said. It is not a good place. Spence urged concerned residents to turn out at the April 14 commission workshop meeting when the petition opposing the fire station, which she said will contain more than 80 signatures, will be presented. Stink continues at Reliable Septic By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The problem began in 2011 with neighbors complaining about the smell coming from a fat, oil and grease plant at 6660 90th Ave. N. in Pinellas Park. In August of that year, Pinellas County Utilities Division issued Reliable Septic and M & D a three-year industrial wastewater discharge permit. But, operations began without proper zoning, without the requisite zoning clearance and without an approved site plan. The property was zoned C-2, and a FOG plant is not allowed in a C-2 zoning district. After neighbors complaints, county staff inspected the plant and verified the problems. Air Quality Division issued a warning letter for objectionable sewage line odors. Before long, Reliable found itself in violation of several areas of county code. On Aug. 27, County Administrator Bob LaSala issued a cease and desist order for operation of a FOG plant on the property. But, M & D and Reliable continued its operations. The Department of Environment and Infrastructure verified several complaints during the month of September, including unauthorized discharges into the countys stormwater system. Despite stiff opposition from the neighbors, County Commissioners approved, 4-3, a resolution changing the zoning from C-2 to C-3 on Jan. 29, 2013. Commissioners John Morroni, Karen Seel and Norm Roche voted no. The zoning change allowed the facility to operate within the proper zoning district. At that Jan. 29 meeting, Michael Albert, president of Reliable Septic, argued that the county had issued him a permit, which he put into use. I came to you in good faith, he said. You knew what I wanted to do. He talked about the expenses involved in the permitting process and the cost to comply with laws and regulations. He also talked about the money invested trying to meet the countys requirements. I would not have spent $400,000 if Id known about the rezoning and the uncertainty of that, he said. We promise you if you approve the zoning, he will do what he needs to do, said Kevin S. Hennessy, Alberts attorney at the time. Weve been here for 40 years. He (Albert) wants to do this for his business and his family. On June 18, 2013, when the complaints kept coming in, County Commissioners agreed to get help from an impartial expert to resolve the continuing dispute. Fines of $500 a day for confirmed violations were accumulating. The owner was refusing to pay. And he accused the county of trying to put him out of business. Ted Legakis, who owns a neighboring business, has been among the neighbors complaining since the very beginning. He was back before the commission April 1. He said the smells were continuing and complained that the facility was clogging the sewer. He said the business next door to the plant had closed and a small grocery store nearby had closed the week before. Legakis has complained for years that it is bad for adjacent businesses to operate next to a FOG plant. David Scott, director of the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, said there had been eight air quality complaints since June 2013 with seven confirmed. Recently operations have been moved back outdoors, which violates the site plan. During a recent rain event, a runoff violation occurred. Currently the owner owes $22,000 in fines. He has paid $4,500 in fines over the years. The facilitys permit expires in July. Scott said the owner has indicated he would not renew. He is reportedly looking for a place to take his waste. Scott said staff was not currently considering revoking the permit and would allow the owner to make a good faith effort to update needed paperwork, which Scott had expected to receive on April 1. He also said Albert had fired his lawyer. He is making a business decision, he said. network supports both 802.11g and 802.11n wireless devices.

County 7A Leader, April 10, 2014 040314 041014 Tips during Water Conservation MonthWhile the Southwest Water Management District encourages water conservation year-round, there is extra emphasis each April for Water Conservation Month. April is traditionally one of the driest months of the year and typically marks the peak demand season for public water suppliers. With 10 simple tips, you can lower your monthly water bill and do your part to save hundreds of gallons of water: Indoor Run the washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full. Use the shortest clothes washing cycle for lightly soiled loads; normal and permanent press wash cycles use more water. Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator or microwave, not under running water. Scrape, dont rinse, dishes before loading in the dishwasher. Install high-efficiency showerheads, faucets and toilets. Outdoor Check home irrigation system for leaks to save up to 6,300 gallons of water per month. Turn off home irrigation system and only water as needed; save up to 2,000 gallons each time a watering day is skipped. Dont leave sprinklers unattended. Use a kitchen timer to remind yourself to turn off sprinklers. Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car to save around 40 gallons per wash. Consider installing a rain barrel with a drip irrigation system for watering your landscaping. Rainwater is free and better for your plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals.LeaksLeaks are the biggest water waster, inside and outside of the home. Use the water meter to check for leaks. Turn off all faucets and water-using appliances and make sure no one uses water during the testing period. Remember to wait for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to refill and for regeneration of water softeners. Go to your water meter and record the current reading. Wait 30 minutes. Remember: no water should be used during this period. Read the meter again. If the reading has changed, you have a leak.

Proceeds from the Homeowners five major annual events go back into the community to support local projects and causes. Visit IRBhome.com.County attorney receives good review By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Attorney Jim Bennett got some good news when results of his annual job review were made public April 1. Bennett scored 371.9 out of a possible 400, garnering a 93 percent average, based on scores given by each of the seven commissions. His highest score, a perfect 4 out of 4, was given for integrity. His lowest, 3.46, was for communication. Bennett scored a 3.9 for provision of major legal services routine internal activities, 3.81 for staff effectiveness, 3.66 for provision of major legal services, 3.58 for leadership, 3.5 for organization, planning and management. The rankings were very, very good, said Commission Chair Karen Seel, who thanked Bennett for his leadership. She commented that the countys legal department had a lot of retirements lately and praised Bennett for his cross-training efforts. His 2015 budget proposal is 1 percent less than for the current fiscal year. Hes doing an excellent job, she said. Bennett thanked the commission for its support, trust and confidence in my staff. In other business, the commission: Approved a request from Bennett to initiate litigation against Dorothy Yeakle to get her to comply with an order of care involving animals. Bennett said she had already agreed to reduce the number of animals in the home to 10. Bennett said staff wants the ability to ensure she keeps to only 10 and that their care is adequate. Approved an amendment terminating the administrative services agreement with the Housing Finance Authority. The county has provided administrative support to HFA since it was created in 1982. Approval of the amendment allows HFA to become operationally independent. It will still report to the commission on a regular basis. The move means a loss of $875,000 in staff-related costs previously paid to the county by HFA. In FY 2014, the loss will be $755,340. To recoup that loss, budget adjustments were made, including a lapse of a $310,750 transfer from the general fund to the community development fund; adding $140,000 gained by staff retirements and unfilled vacancies; and adding a potential $304,590 in grant money. Denied a health program agreement with Baycare Health Systems. Commissioners asked staff to go back and negotiate with Bayfront HMA Medical Center and Florida Hospital North Pinellas as well as Baycare to try to get a more inclusive contract for medical services. The services providers are unhappy with a recent change in the funding distribution formula. The county currently has no contract for service for hospital care for its indigent population. Local hospitals are providing procedures for life-threatening conditions only. Jim BennettBiggest Beach Party ever set for April 26 Visit the Largo Leader every day at www.TBNweekly.com

DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 020614 11350 66th St. N., Largo727-538-7771 The definition of the word team in the English dictionary is to gather or join a team, a band or cooperative effort. 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.

Hoppy Easter!Tampa Bay Newspapers is hoppy to announce that Ally, a greyhound mix, is the April Pet of the Month Photo Contest winner. Donna and Richard Seaman of Largo adopted her from the SPCA Tampa Bay, where she had been put up for adoption twice, before she was 1.5 years old. Ally is now 12 and a happy senior citizen who loves her mom and dad. Ally is a social butterfly in their neighborhood, and when they are all outside, Ally strolls from house to house and plops down in neighbors yards to watch people go by. She loves to follow her humans every move and greets them with a stuffed animal when they get home. Ally may be beginning to show signs of aging, but she still remains the most loyal, sweetest and loving dog that her parents could ask for. It is the greatest feeling in the world when I come home from work and she runs out to greet me with a stuffed animal in her mouth, Donna said. She will see my car coming up the street and guide me in as if I am an airplane landing. For being this months pet winner, Ally wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

There are several categories of skin abnormalities that affect dogs. Many of the various skin conditions we treat at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin are either cured or controlled with proper treatment. Here are some questions we frequently answer. What are immune-mediated skin disorders? The most frequently treated immune-mediated skin disorder in the canine is Canine Atopic skin disease. This condition occurs when the immune system becomes overactive and reacts to different components of the environment, causing itching, licking, scratching or chewing of the feet, face and body. There are many things that cause a reaction from the immune system of the dog. Examples of these reactive substances are fleas, pollen, molds, grasses, trees, plants and dust-mites. Atopic allergy can become a long-term chronic disease that requires constant attention. If we are able to decrease or eliminate the reactive substance from the environment of the dog, we can control the allergic response and return to normal. In Florida, it is often difficult to eliminate the problem because these substances are everywhere. Besides reduction or elimination of these offending substances from the environment, there are three major ways to treat this condition. First is by allergy desensitization where blood is drawn to find out to what our patient is reacting. With a series of allergy injections over many months, the immune system is retrained to react in a different manner to these substances. This halts the reactive process and the clinical symptoms mentioned hopefully above go away. Second, we will treat symptomatically with antibiotics if infection is present and also may use a steroid to reduce the biting, scratching, licking and chewing that we see. The third way we approach atopic allergy is by giving a medication to mildly suppress the immune system so the allergic reaction stops. All of these treatments work well some of the time but not all of the time. Another type of immune-mediated skin disorder is called Pemphigus foliaceus. Although not nearly as common as atopic skin disease, it is the most common autoimmune skin disease of the canine. Blisters with crusting sores are seen most often on the face and ears but can affect the whole body. This condition, along with the more severe autoimmune skin diseases, are most effectively treated with strong drugs that counteract the intense immune response by the dogs own body against itself. What are hot spots? Hot spots are technically called moist traumatic dermatitis. These intense, moist, weeping areas come initially from some irritation that becomes infected with staphylococcal bacteria that normally reside on the skin. These bacteria take advantage of this heat, moisture and breakdown of the top layers of the skin from trauma by scratching, licking or biting. A hot spot is like a brush fire turning into a forest fire in a matter of hours. This condition is treated with steroids, antibiotics, topical applications, clipping, cleaning and drying the affected area. Care must be taken to stop the trauma caused by the patient to the area involved. Anything that makes a dog itch can lead to a hot spot. What is an acral lick granuloma? This is a condition frequently seen in dogs on their legs. This begins as a small irritation on the legs that causes the dog to lick excessively until the top layer of the skin is devoid of hair, and an ulcerated red and raw area is created. These areas are difficult to cure because there is an obsessivecompulsive nature to these lesions once they are created. There are many ways to treat these lesions. No one treatment effectively treats all of these cases. Antibiotics, topical preparations, antidepressants and covering the lesion to prevent the licking are some of the techniques used. What is the difference between sarcoptic and demodectic mange? Both of these conditions are caused by a mite that invades the skin of our canine patients. The majority of demodex cases are in younger dogs. This condition is not contagious to other dogs or people. This is frequently called red mange. The majority of these cases are easily treated. Sarcoptic mange is another skin mite that can be found in dogs of all ages. One important difference here is that sarcoptic mange is contagious to both other dogs and to people, so it is important to differentiate the type of mange that a patient has. Fortunately, sarcoptic mange is easily treated and eliminated when diagnosed properly.

I ask my kids that same question. My parents always encouraged me to reach for the stars and be whatever I wanted to be and do whatever I wanted to do. They believed that if we tried hard enough we could accomplish anything we set our mind to. They were right. Sometimes we didnt succeed at first and maybe not even a second or third time, but eventually we accomplished our goals. I tell my children the same thing. While growing up, I saw how my parents treated each other and the love they had for one another and that stuck with me in my relationship with my husband. My parents put God first in their marriage and then each other, caring for one another and being each others best friend. My husband and I do the same. The example my parents have shown me and my siblings is an amazing one. I think parents today dont realize just how much of an influence they have on their kids. I hope to follow in my parents footsteps as a wife and mother living my life as a positive example for them. Thank you, Dad and Mom! Happy 45th anniversary! Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2 MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com. Photo courtesy of the HENDRICKS FAMILYKati and Randy Hendricks were married April 12, 1969.This week is my parents 45th wedding anniversary. As I reflect on this, I think about the influence my parents have had on me not only as a person, but also as a wife and a mom. I am truly blessed to have my parents. Since we dont get to choose our parents when we are born, it amazes me how I was able to get the parents I have. They are truly wonderful and have taught me so much during my life. Growing up, my parents instilled in me a Christian faith, family, love, good morals and ethics and to do my best in everything I do. I have always looked to my parents for guidance. Both of them are successful in different ways. My father is a successful businessman and my mother a successful stay-at-home mom. Anyone who is a stay-at-home mom knows it is one of the hardest jobs. My mom gave up her career to raise four kids. I am the oldest of those children. I have two sisters and a brother. If you know my family, you know we are very close. All of my sisters and brother are married, and there are 18 of us including grandkids. We all have lived in Pinellas County most of our lives and get together as a group at least once a month, if not more. My parents have always made family a priority in our lives. It started when we were growing up. We did almost everything together from attending each others soccer, basketball, baseball and softball games and gymnastic meets to going on family vacations together, attending church and just eating dinner together as a family. Its funny how I see my life repeating some of the things my parents did as I continue these same family values. When my kids were born, I quit my career so I could stay at home with my kids. I felt that it was important for me to be with my girls and raise them. I was fortunate to be able to do this.

Viewpoints 15A Leader, April 10, 2014I want to tell you a story about why our community desperately needs to be aware of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs. As a current Big Brother, I hope my story will inspire all who encounter it. So please, take a moment to join me on my mentoring journey and see where it takes you. Our first meeting was inauspicious. Shaq was barely awake and sat uninterested on the couch. Our first outings were awkward. He was guarded in his responses, and we had little to talk about. After subsequent visits Shaq would always ask me if I was coming back, I assured him I would. I thought to myself, heres a kid whos been let down and hurt before. I made the mistake of many new Big Brothers; I tried to make each outing an event and spent too much money trying to entertain. Shaq was unclear on the Big Brother concept. He thought I was a paid employee and could not believe I was spending my own money on him. As the weeks went on we became more comfortable with each other. Shaq stopped asking if I was coming back. I got to know Shaqs grandmother, Doris, who raised him since he was a baby. Our relationship grew and progressed. Ill never forget our outing to the city recreation pool. Shaq asked me to go on the water slide. Please note that these tubular structures are built to accommodate a 3to 5-foot child, not the 6-foot, 230 lb. now 60-year-old adult whose body creaks like an old wooden ship at sea for the first half hour of every morning. I tumbled out of the tube with enough speed to force an entire gallon of water up my nose. I landed sputtering and coughing as Shaq negotiated the same slide, no problem. He then pointed to the second slide, a much taller and tortuous structure. Three thoughts went through my mind as I hurtled down the tube: 1. Those are my heels? 2. Ive never seen the backs of my knees before. 3. This is going to hurt. I hit the water like an Apollo capsule landing in the Pacific and took in another snootful of water. Unable to speak, I gestured toward the slide as if to say, Your turn. Shaq shook his head in disagreement and swam away with a smile on his face. Seriously? Well played my friend, I said to myself, as I vowed revenge. An anecdote that certainly illustrates the demeanor of our relationship. Being a Big Brother is easy. First you have to show up and second you have to be there when youre needed. Someone once said, Ninety percent of life is just showing up. Being there is the other half of the equation. Its just that easy and just that complex. Just like life. Shaq and I spend two-three hours together every Saturday. Weve been together for six years. We talk about serious issues. We laugh at each other and at ourselves. We talk about inconsequential issues. We shoot basketball, bowl, run errands, go to movies, clothes shop and occasionally well do something special like Busch Gardens. Neither of us understands women. I enjoy his company and I respect the man he has become. We set only one goal for Shaq to graduate with his class. This seemingly innocuous goal takes on new meaning when you realize that only 21 percent of black males in Pinellas County schools actually graduate and Shaq will be one of them. Hes not coasting. He is working hard, even taking night classes, and has been on the honor roll most of his senior year. I could not be prouder. Shaq isnt going to get an academic scholarship to Princeton and he wont be a running back at the University of Florida. This is not a Hollywood movie. What Shaq does have is a shot at a college education and a future. Ive thought long and hard about what words of wisdom I want to say to Shaq on graduation night. What can you say to a young man who has come so far? Im a collector of quotes. I settled on two quotes that cover all the vagaries of life. Here is what Ive come up with: Shaq, always remember, I before E except after C and quoting Winston Churchill, Never, never, never, never give up. The message Id like to share with you and your readers today is that there are so many children, just like Shaq, who are waiting for someone like you to be their mentor and friend. In fact, there are more than 175 young boys and girls who are ready to be matched Today at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County. Will you embark on a personal mentoring expedition? Call Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas today to learn more about how you can start something big in the life of a child, at 518-8860 or visit their website at www.bbbspc.org.

It has a place, the right participants, (men, women, boys, girls, small children and bikers) and its only waiting for the right time. With the warm weather coming, spring break is here and many more visitors on the beach where bikers are trying to share a narrow strip of hard beach with many beach goers walking and playing on the shore line. Never mind that its illegal to ride your bike on the beach. Theres no signage to tell you so, rental shops dont warn you, and little law enforcement activity or effort will make a difference. Unfortunately most beach goers dont know their rights and the little ones may be the first victims. Hopefully the prospective mayors of our Gulf beaches will step up to prevent a tragic accident that is just waiting for the right time to happen. Robert Buzby Redington Shores Crows, spaniels, sharks, elephantsTHE ELEPHANT AND THE RECEPTIONIST. An elephant walked into a stockbrokers office and told Pam, the receptionist, Im here to apply for your opening as a hedge fund manager. Pam said, Im sorry, but we hire only bulls or bears. Disappointed, the elephant rampaged through the place, knocking down walls and tossing desks and computers through the air. Moral: if youre a receptionist named Pam and an elephant walks in, get out. THE SHARK AND THE TURTLE. In the waters of Tampa Bay, on the Pinellas end of the Howard Frankland Bridge, there lived a shark and a turtle. The turtle kept bragging to the shark, saying I can live both on the land and in the water, but you must spend your life in the water. Im therefore better than you. The shark finally said, Yes, you certainly are. At which point he gobbled up the turtle, with a mighty crunch. Moral: if youre a turtle living near a shark, either shut up or stay on shore. THE OLD MAN AND HIS DOCTOR BILLS. Each January an old man named Jake went crazy trying to figure out his medical bills. His eye doctor charged him $72 for a Jan. 6 checkup, plus $35 for a refraction he didnt need or ask for. His primary care doctor charged him $73 to look at his sore throat on Jan. 28. Jake was puzzled. He had Medicare and Medigap insurance, so why was he being charged? He called the Medigap company, UHARP, and was told, We dont actually do insurance. We farm it out to the XYZ Healthcare Co. Jake dialed the XYZ phone number, and spoke to a lady in Pakistan who told him, You bean billed for Medicare deductible, Meester Jake. Wassa mattah fo you? Jack phoned Medicare and was told by a taped voice, Your call is important to us. It may be recorded for quality, or just for the heck of it. Please stay on the line. Jake phoned his girl friend, Ellie, and whined to her. She said, Just pay the #!@!! bills, Jake! So he did. HOMER AND HONEY. For several years, Homer loved only two things: his girl Honey, and the music of the BeeGees. A dozen times a year, or more, Honey bought Homer a new BeeGees album, or an old one. They held hands and sang along to Stayin Alive, Jive Talkin and other BeeGees hit songs. It was a beautiful love affair. But then Homer got careless. He developed the hots for a dark-haired waitress at a Tampa steakhouse. Someone tipped off Honey, who was furious. She went to Homers apartment and attacked his CD collection. She stripped the shelves of every BeeGee recording, and took them with her. When Homer returned, he saw what had happened, and knew that he had lost the love of his life. He mourned her for years thereafter. Moral: You never miss your Honey until the BeeGees are gone. THE CROW AND THE SPANIEL. A crow born in New Jersey got tired of the cold winters. So he flew south and landed in a field in Pasco County. The field, loaded with corn and gluten, was owned by Oscar Parmer, a retired cross-examiner. His 8-year-old daughter Pookie loved to play in the corn field with her spaniel Manuel. One day Pookie and Manuel met the crow. Manuel, who watched a lot of TV cop shows, said to the crow, You are trespassing. We demand identification. The crow said, I left my wallet up north, in Parsippany. I cannot prove who I am, so I am at your mercy, since you apparently own this corn field and like to throw your weight around. The spaniel Manuel said, Would you agree to submit to a DNA test? The crow said, Yes, of course, and allowed Manuel to pluck a small feather from his wing. Pookie mailed the feather to the Parsippany, N.J., police department, for testing. A week later the police sent this email to Manuel: Your crow is a defrocked Episcopalian priest named Locksley. He has been found guilty of preaching dull sermons. When notified of this, the crow wept copiously and said, I knew my past would one day catch up with me. Pookie and Manuel said, Fear not. We will enroll you in our clergy protection program. They all lived happily ever after, and moved to Bradenton, where Pookie opened a bed-and-breakfast inn for manatees.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Obamacare: Just magical thinkingShould Congress repeal Obamacare? If you had asked that before the botched Affordable Care Act rollout, I would have had a hard time answering yes. I didnt see how the scheme could work, but I also believed that Washington owed the millions of Americans who I was told had been waiting desperately for years for guaranteed health care. Now I say, Whats in a name? Theres no need for a repeal when Washington is bound to revamp the law. The reason: Consumers arent buying it. According to the White House, more than 6 million people have signed onto Obamacare exchanges. Problem: The law kicked close to 5 million Americans off their private health care plans. Also, the administration says it doesnt know how many new plan members actually are paying their premiums, so that 6 million figure could be highly inflated. At best, more than 1 million extra Americans got new private coverage, while 5 million individual policyholders got kicked off their old plans. Some wont have access to the doctors they were promised they could keep. For many, the new plans are less affordable than their old plans. Industry graybeard Robert Laszewski found that many exchange providers are just re-enrolling their old customers at higher rates. Call it the Less Affordable Care Act. Individuals who qualify for federal subsidies probably will pay lower premiums, but only because taxpayers are subsidizing their plans. How is that more affordable for America? Obamacare also expanded Medicaid coverage for 7 million uninsured Americans. Thing is, President Barack Obama didnt need to upend the private market in order to expand Medicaid coverage. The same goes for the highly popular but utterly nonsensical provicant sign up for Obamacare. Youre signing up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. Its private insurance. The private market has had many drawbacks but one salvation: Until Obamacare, people were free to refuse to pay for a bad deal. Months ago, reader Bob Duste of Glen Ellen, Calif., wrote to tell me that under Obamacare, his premiums had doubled while his deductible went up by 25 percent. His family can take the hit, he wrote, but he was disillusioned with the efficacy of most government programs that end up being forced upon the unwilling as opposed to a last resort for the downtrodden and truly indigent. Simply put, the Democrats didnt know what they were doing, but that didnt stop them from forcing their magical thinking on people who didnt want it.Email Debra J.

The administration has delayed provisions 38 times, by the Wall Street Journal editorial pages count. The White House even asked insurers to continue providing those substandard plans it had banned. Six Democratic senators have come up with a plan to offer consumers more choices, spur competition and increase affordability. On Fox News Sunday, one of the six authors, Sen. Angus King, a Maine independent who caucuses with Democrats, essentially declared the Affordable Care Act dead. Theres no such thing as Obamacare, he said. You

They are already making plans to celebrate the Trails 25th anniversary in 2015. The Trail, next to the beach, is the second most popular (county attraction), Scott said. The volunteer group allows citizens to get involved in taking care of the trail and in providing extra amenities the county cant afford. He said they also are involved in Trail safety via the Safety and Security Task Force. He said 100 volunteer auxiliary rangers, working with the countys Parks and Conservation Resources Department, help patrol the 38mile trail to keep it clean and keep it safe. To assist them with that mission, Pinellas Trails Inc. has donated an electric cart to use on the trail. We hope to do more donations in the future, Scott said. The Pinellas Trail is a very special park in our county. We most sincerely thank you, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. Valery talked about the need for funds to complete the trail. This has been a 30-year process and it is not done, he said. He requested that more Penny for Pinellas money be allocated toward Trail construction to finish what more than 90,000 people now enjoy each month. Id like to get this done while Im alive, the 74-year-old told commissioners. Valery was instrumental in creation of the Trail through his work on a MPO committee after a vehicle killed his son while he was riding his bicycle home from work. Seel said she had met with Duke Energy about a funding agreement to finish the Duke Energy Trail, which connects a portion of the Pinellas Trail. I hope to have a signed trail agreement by the end of the month, she said. She explained that due to the downturn in the economy in 2008, staff had to redo the budget for projects being paid for with Penny money. I fought to keep the money in, but was not successful, Seel said. She said the MPO was applying for a federal TIGER grant in hopes to get funding to finish the trail loop in north county to complete the trail from East Lake to St. Petersburg. Valery said he didnt have much confidence in a TIGER grant. Youve lost on that twice already, he said. Were working on it, Seel said. Cold fronts bringing gale force windsCold fronts are nothing new to April; its known for being a windy month. But I cant remember a year when each passing front brought two days of gale force winds. Surely by Thursday we will be looking at winds under 10 mph, but by then the damage will be done. By damage I mean dirty water and displaced bait and the fish that pursue them. Realistically it will take till Saturday for the water to clean up enough for the bait to gather. Patterns will need to re-establish and with improving tides later into the weekend we should see a couple of excellent fishing days before the next cold front comes through. Kingfish inched there way closer to shore by last weekend. Plenty of fish in the 10to 15-pound range were hanging over hardbottom areas within a couple of miles off shore. Anchoring and fishing with live pilchards while running a fresh chum block lead to multiple hook-ups from fish this size. If youre targeting bigger fish try using bigger baits such as live shad, mullet or ladyfish. Inshore fishing was really good mid-week last week and became progressively slower as we got into the weekend. Slow-moving tides were to blame for the decline in action. As we look toward this upcoming week we see those full moon tides start to take hold and we should see the fishing get hot again. Oyster mounds at high tide have been holding good numbers of redfish and a few snook. Live bait fishing with pilchards, also known as whitebait, can be exciting, but sometimes not as effective as a fresh cut bait either ladyfish or shad, placed right along the outer edge of the bar. Trout fishing remains strong as numbers of fish are holding along spoils island drop-offs. Sand/ shell bottom is the preferred habitat of the spawning sized trout. Free-lining live pilchards uptide and letting them swing through the zone is a slam-dunk when the fish are turned on.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotma il.com.

GardeningDuring spring and summer on Florida beaches, shorebirds build nests out of sand and shells, and hatch chicks that can barely be seen. So well camouflaged are the nests, eggs and chicks of shorebirds, such as the snowy plover, they can easily be stepped on or missed unless people know to watch out for them. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is reminding beachgoers to be on the lookout and avoid disturbing bird nurseries on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida. Among the states beach-nesting shorebirds facing conservation challenges are the snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer, American oystercatcher and Wilsons plover. By taking a few simple steps, people can enjoy the beach without disturbing beachnesting shorebirds and their chicks, which increases the birds chances of survival, said Nancy Douglass, who works on shorebird conservation at the FWC. While the populations of beach-nesting birds are declining, peoples willingness to protect shorebirds and their chicks contributes to keeping them present on Florida beaches for generations to come, Douglass said. People at the beach, including those paddling canoes, kayaks and boards along the shore, can help beach-nesting shorebirds by following basic guidelines: Keep your distance. If birds become agitated or leave their nests, you are too close. A general rule is to stay at least 300 feet from a nest. Birds calling out loudly and dive-bombing are giving signals you need to back off. Never intentionally force birds to fly or run. They use up energy they need for nesting, and eggs and chicks may be left vulnerable to the suns heat and to predators. Respect posted areas. Avoid posted nesting sites and use designated walkways when possible. Its best not to take pets to the beach, but if you do, keep them on a leash. Keep the beach clean and do not feed wildlife. Food scraps attract predators such as raccoons and crows. Litter on beaches can entangle birds and other wildlife. Spread the word. If you see people disturbing nesting birds, gently let them know how their actions may hurt the birds survival. If they continue to disturb nesting birds, report their activities to the FWCs Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on your cell phone or by texting Tip@MyFWC.com. You also can report nests that are not posted to Wildlife Alert. Wildlife photographers also should follow the rules that protect beach-nesting shorebirds: Remain behind the posted area, with no part of you or your camera equipment extending beyond the string or signs. Dont exceed 10 minutes. Too much time photographing near the nest may stress the birds. Dont push birds around the beach. Stay far enough away so the birds do not change their behavior in response to your presence. They need to feed and rest without disturbance.

Designed for individuals 55 and older, this adult day care program offers a variety of classes and activities to keep attendees mentally and physically engaged despite any health issues they might have. Activities include everything from music and the arts to discussions of current events to fitness and games. We do everything to keep them out of institutionalized care, said Stephanie Sessions, executive director at PACE. Our goal is to keep them in action, keep them healthy. Available to those on Medicaid and some on Medicare, PACE is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until about 5 p.m. Members of the program can come as many or as few times a week as theyd like. Studies show that lonely seniors have a 14 percent higher death rate than those who are not, which is why PACEs program is so important, Sessions said. But its so much more than simply a social outlet, she stressed. PACE has an onsite, full medical clinic, so participants can receive all of their medical care, including physical therapy, at the facility. Theres always access to nurses and physicians, Sessions said. Staff also assists participants with laundry, shopping, transportation and even personal hygiene, if necessary, and also will send help into members homes on their days off from the program as needed. Currently, there are about 160 seniors in the program, which has the capacity for around 200, Sessions said. For those who attend, the program is a lifesaver. They do so many good things here, said Gary Grimm, who joined the program after learning about it from a friend. And the medical staff is phenomenal. It is absolutely wonderful, said Laurie Maccorquadale, who knew PACE would be a great fit for her before she ever walked through the door. I dont like the weekends because theyre not open and I just sit at home and watch TV all day. PACE saved my life; it saved my sanity. Nelson proposes alternative Medicaid expansion planWASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is asking federal health officials to consider an emerging idea that would still allow Florida to expand its Medicaid program to some 1.2 million lowincome residents. An idea is to involve public hospitals, which serve many of the states low-income or indigent patients, in providing some of their revenue in place of state funding for Medicaid expansion, Nelson said in a media release. Congress already has given all the states an opportunity to expand Medicaid. In Florida, that would mean coverage for the estimated 1.2 million Floridians, which would bring some $51 billion in federal dollars back into the state over the next decade. But the Republican-controlled state Legislature last year refused to consider an expansion of the program. And so far this year, Gov. Rick Scott is still ignoring the issue while state legislative leaders are once again failing to consider it, Nelson said. While the idea of alternative funding whichwould involve the use of a so-called intergovernmental transfer is still in the discussion phase among some Florida hospital and health industry officials, Nelson has asked the head of CMS to be open-minded if such a plan is to go further. ... A locally financed plan is worth formal consideration and I will continue to work with interested parties to encourage the state to officially offer such a plan, Nelson wrote in a letter to Marilyn Tavenner, the head of the federal governments Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Ultimately, any plan to expand Medicaid would have to be negotiated between CMS and state leaders. Under the initial Medicaid proposal rejected by the state, the federal government would have paid the full cost of expansion for the first three years and then pared that down to 90 percent. Nelson and many business and civic leaders in Florida have argued that accepting some $51 billion in federal funds to expand Medicaid would not only have provided health coverage for the additional 1.2 million residents, but also would have created jobs and reduced the burden on taxpayers who pick up the tab when higher-cost emergency rooms are used to treat people in need of only primary care.

Dental Care of Largo to offer cancer screeningsLARGO In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Amir Daoud and the team at Dental Care of Largo will offer free oral cancer screenings on Saturday, April 19, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the dental office, 1511 Indian Rocks Road, Largo. Oral cancer is an extremely common disease, and more than 43,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with oral cancer every year.

These screenings are quick, simple and painless, and can detect symptoms of the disease even before it is cancerous. It is an effective way to find and treat cancer in its early, highly curable stages. Daoud and the team at Dental Care of Largo want to help decrease the number of patients with oral cancer by providing free oral cancer screenings to as many people as possible. Patients will be seen on a first come first served basis.

Todd Rundgren, Sunday, April 13, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. This will be Rundgrens first concert at the Capitol Theatre since his sold-out show in November 2011. The title of Rundgrens 1973 solo album A Wizard, A True Star aptly sums up the contributions of this multi-faceted artist to state-of-the-art music. As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and, most recently, interactive artist, Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Rundgren began playing guitar as a teenager, going on to found and front The Nazz, the quintessential `60s cult group. In 1969, he left the band to pursue a solo career, recording his debut offering, the legendary Runt. But it was 1972s seminal Something/Anything?, on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts and acted as his own producer, that catapulted Rundgren into the superstar limelight. The Zombies Saturday, April 12, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49.50. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com.

Multi-platinum recording artist Air Supply will perform in concert in the intimate Capitol Theatre. Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia, where they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles, and of course, singing. They would play pizza parlors, coffee bars and nightclubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for the original songs that Graham constantly wrote. They made a demo of two songs, Love and Other Bruises and If You Knew Me and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one, CBS Records, who admired their unique style. Their first single shot to No. 1 on the national charts and that same year they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the United States and Canada. Returning home, they made an album, Life Support, which included Lost in Love, that went to the Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York. Davis immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Their second single, All Out of Love, went to the top of the charts even quicker. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies. Lost in Love was named Song of the Year in 1980 and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies. The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcocks soaring tenor voice and Graham Russells simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as Air Supply.

In an act of mean-spirited rebellion, Sabitha uses technology to foster a pseudo-relationship between Johanna and her father, never dreaming of the potential harm to either party. Sabitha doesnt understand that Johanna is not a demure cut-out, but rather a woman for whom the phrase still waters run deep could have been coined. The young girls interference provokes Johanna to indulge in something long missing from her life: the dream of a future and a home of her own.JoeGenre: Drama Cast: Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan Director: David Gordon Green Rated: R A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Browns novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Directed by David Gordon Green, the film brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hottempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble until he meets a hard-luck kid played by Tye Sheridan who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.Only Lovers Left AliveGenre: Horror and romance Cast: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright Director: Jim Jarmusch Rated: R Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but her wild and uncontrollable younger sister soon disrupts their debauched idyll. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?The Railway ManGenre: Drama Cast: Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Irvine, Stellan Skarsgard, Sam Reid, Tanroh Ishida and Hiroyuki Sanada Director: Jonathan Teplitzky Rated: R Based on the remarkable bestselling autobiography, The Railway Man tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labor camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax and his beautiful love interest Patti (Nicole Kidman) discover that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and set out to confront him, and his haunting past, in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Birchwood recently signed with Alligator Records. In 2013, Birchwood catapulted from local hero to shooting star. He won the world-renowned International Blues Challenge, beating out 125 other bands from the United States and abroad. He also took home the Albert King Guitarist Of The Year Award. This June, Alligator Records will release Birchwoods new album, Dont Call No Ambulance. It is described as a fully realized vision of contemporary blues. According to a press release from Alligator Records, Birchwoods original songs range from raucous romps to hill country stomps, from searing, serious slow blues to modern blues-rock. Coco Montoya is a self-taught guitar slinger who plays with an emotional intensity few string benders possess. Playing left-handed and upside down like Albert King, Montoya learned his guitar techniques from his years with legendary bluesman Albert Collins. I never had a lesson in my life, Montoya says in his biography provided by Intrepid Artists. I would watch other guitar play-Sculpture selected for art installation in GulfportGULFPORT Artist Stephen Oliver recently was selected as the winner of the Gulfport Merchants Associations competition for a work of public art adjacent to the Gulfport Casino. Olivers sculpture proposal, titled Best Kept Secret, reflects on Gulfports history and the spirits of diversity and creativity that characterize the city today according to a press release. It also celebrates the openness of a once-segregated community that continues to grow to accept everyone, Oliver said in the press release. The sculpture will be situated adjacent to the Gulfport Casino, an Art Deco styled public hall that is a Gulfport icon and has served as a community gathering place since the turn of the century. The casino was recently approved for addition to the list of National Historic Landmarks. Olivers sculpture will consist of a metal boat in a raised position at eye level so that visitors can read the poetry cut into its port and starboard sides. The lines will read To cross the gulf be our port of call leaving a wake of peace and love for all and All hands together joined to row make rainbows of gauntlet as they go. The sculpture also incorporates a keyhole in the stern of the boat, through which one can view a rainbow of painted colors and reflecting colored glass elements on the interior. The stern of the boat is also shaped like the faade of the casino and serves as a palette for a painting of the colored peoples dance pavilion to reflect how the community has evolved to become an inclusive one since the days of segregation. Oliver found an image of the old pavilion on the Gulfport Historical Societys website. The boats tall mast-like weathervane, situated beside the boat, reflects the themes of peace and love in the poetry cut into the boats hull and incorporates sculptural elements intended to resemble Gulfports initials G-P. Oliver is known by many Gulfport locals and visitors as the designer and vendor of the graphic Give Peace shirts and other garments he sells at Gulfports Tuesday Fresh Market. He has a background in architecture and furniture design, and has worked with numerous museums and artists in coordinating and designing projects, residencies, exhibitions and public art as well as making his own art. Oliver has a degree in architecture from New Jersey Institute of Technology and a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design. He lives part of the year in Maine. His family has local roots in St. Petersburg, where his father and other family members still live. His grandfather, Henry Oliver Sr., was a prolific builder whose wife ran their small produce market in St. Petersburg. Grandpa Oliver also helped lay the brick streets of Gulfport during a building boom that started in 1923 and ended in the Great Depression. Oliver expects to begin work on the sculpture immediately, with final installation and dedication ceremony planned for this summer. The Gulfport Merchants Association selected Olivers work after a national call for artists that resulted in more than a dozen entries. Proceeds from Gecko Fest and other events sponsored by the GMA are funding the public art commission.

James Hunter was born in 1962 into a workingclass family in Colchester, Essex, in England. It wasnt quite like growing up with the blues in Alabama, but in my part of England, anywhere south of Watford would be considered Alabama, he says in his biography. In the States, youve got the Mason-Dixon Line and in England, weve got the Watford Gap. Hunters earliest musical influences came from a collection of old 78 rpm records of s rock n roll and rhythm and blues. Hunters grandmother gave him the collection. His older brother taught him to play guitar. His most fifth studio album, Minute by Minute, was released in 2013.Palladium to host After ShowsA series of Tampa Bay Blues Festival After Shows will be presented Friday and Saturday, April 11-12, at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

Alligator Records Tommy Castro And The Painkillers recently released The Devil You Know, Castros first full length studio release since 2009. The Devil You Know is also Castros first album featuring his new lean and mean stripped down four-piece band, The Painkillers. The 13-track CD featuring nine songs written or co-written by Castro showcases a looser, grittier, down and dirty side of Castros signature blend of hard hitting blues, rock and Memphis soul that harkens back to the days when he started playing as a teenager. Castro is a multiple Blues Music Award winner, most notably for his 2009 Alligator debut, Hard Believer. In 2010, Castro won four Blues Music Awards including, for the second time in his career, the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year Award, and, for his whole group, Band Of The Year. He also picked up Contemporary Blues Album of the Year and Contemporary Blues Male Artist of the Year. Also performing Saturday is another Alligator Records band the gold standard for raw-boned slide-fueled Chicago blues: Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials. Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials recently received the 2013 Living Blues Critics and Readers Photo courtesy of ALLIGATOR RECORDSOn April 12, Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials perform at the Tampa Bay Blues Festival in Vinoy Park.

The latest installment from the Marvel Studios bullpen now quite comfortable beneath the Walt Disney Pictures umbrella is no exception. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is yet another solid chapter in the sprawling Marvel Universe, bursting at the seams with deftly orchestrated action sequences, high-tech gear, noisy explosions and bone-crunching brawls. What sets it apart, however, is its clever criticism of the contemporary military-industrial complex and, in particular, government-sanctioned surveillance of its own citizens. The sequel to 2011s Captain America: The First Avenger is arguably the most ambitious film in the franchise to date. The story charts a darker course than most Marvel films, tackling timely political issues in a style that evokes 1970s conspiracy thrillers such as The Parallax View, The Kremlin Letter and Three Days of the Condor. Perhaps to reinforce that stylistic connection, Robert Redford who played CIA employee Joe Turner in Three Days of the Condor was cast in the pivotal role of Alexander Pierce, a high-ranking official at the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. As the movie opens, Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, is continuing to adapt to living in the 21st century and still working for S.H.I.E.L.D. He is tapped to lead an operation to save a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel that has been captured by Algerian pirates. During the mission, he learns fellow agent Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, has been given a separate objective: He discovers her extracting data from the ships computers. Rogers who feels he should have been briefed on Romanoffs task confronts his boss, Nick Fury. Sensing Rogers growing wariness with his employer, Fury reveals to Rogers the project S.H.I.E.L.D. is finalizing: Three heavily armed helicarrier gunships, linked to spy satellites and designed to preemptively eliminate threats, are being prepared to launch. Fury believes the program will ensure stability and security; Rogers, being the old school patriot he is, believes security isnt worth the price of freedom. Dont worry, though: The political science lesson isnt overemphasized. There are well-placed speeches here and there, but Captain America: The Winter Soldier maintains a brisk pace and the action sequences far outnumber the encapsulated ideological proclamations. Things really get moving when Fury often perceived as untouchable in Marvel films comes under fire in a suspenseful sequence that expands into a gritty, urban warfare tableau. The situation degenerates further as it becomes clear that no one at S.H.I.E.L.D. can be trusted. Captain America and Black Widow have a mystery to solve: Who infiltrated the organization and what needs to be done to stop them from gaining control of those helicarriers that can be used to wipe out entire cities. Add to the fun a new ally, the Falcon, and a new villain, the Winter Soldier, and youve got a sequel that is as good as its predecessor maybe even better. Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers/Captain America. Hes clearly comfortable in the role at this point, and his portrayal gives fans a hero that clings to a form of 1940s incorruptible purity without seeming self-righteous. Scarlett Johansson is equally credible as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. Unlike Rogers, Romanoff is a hardcore cynic. Johansson delivers plenty of sarcastic jibes but never lets the character lose her compassion. The relationship between the two characters depicted in spurts of mundane banter helps establish their sincerity and makes them more identifiable as individuals. Anthony Mackie joins the Marvel Universe as Sam Wilson/Falcon. He seems a perfect fit for Captain Americas staunch ally and friend, and it is clear from their first interaction that the two actors want to show that the characters are on equal footing, even though Rogers might be the one with super powers: This is no hero-and-sidekick arrangement. Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as Nick Fury. Jackson is given so much screen time one wonders if the character is destined for a solo project of his own. The actor epitomizes the character. Seriously, its difficult to imagine anyone else playing the part. There are plenty of other excellent performances from outstanding actors, including Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and, of course, Redford. Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Captain America: The Winter Soldier boldly stands on its own merits. This film is neither filler to appease genre fans zealously awaiting next summers Avengers: Age of Ultron, nor a convenient bridge constructed specifically to set up future productions. That said, by the time the credits are rolling, the script has revealed a few story threads some obvious, some less noticeable that will undoubtedly reemerge in subsequent Marvel franchise properties. Besides being a captivating superhero adventure film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier offers audiences an edgier story and a deeper appraisal of patriotism. Captain America faces a formidable foe in the Winter Soldier, but Rogers simultaneously realizes the team hes fighting for isnt as noble as he once believed. Its easy to make a superhero film that tests the strength and resolve of its protagonist; not so easy to make one that challenges his basic principles. The ill-planned S.H.I.E.L.D. program clearly mirrors real-world intelligence gathering methods used by the National Security Agency and similar organizations. The political subtext doesnt bog down the action: Its there to lend substance to the narrative and, perhaps, provoke discussion not to serve as some kind of subversive manifesto. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is surprisingly well executed. Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have managed to craft a superhero film that will doubtlessly please diehard Marvel fans as well as an action-packed political thriller, designed to appeal to wider audiences.
