TORRESLARGO The city of Largos became the first fire district to officially reject the countys proposed budget cuts for EMS funding April 15. During their meeting, Largo commissioners unanimously passed a resolution to initiate governmental conflict resolution procedures with Pinellas County government. The city cannot afford to lose what Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis has estimated to be as high as $9 million in funding over the next 10 years if they accepted the countys contract as written. Theres a lot of money at stake for the city, City Attorney Alan Zimmet said. We have a statutory right thats being compromised. Thats a very important issue. City staff has tried to negotiate for more EMS funding, and the commissioners, after sending a letter to the county stating their position, invited Bruce Moeller, the countys executive director of public safety services, to explain the proposed cuts April 1. But the county has not budged from its insistence on the system-wide, costs-saving proposal, called CARES 2. As a result of passing the resolution, the city has sent a letter to the county April 16, copying it to all of the fire districts affected by the proposed changes. The county has 10 days to respond. The city has suggested scheduling the mandated conflict assessment meeting for Thursday, May 8 at Largo City Hall. Largo is the first to pass the necessary resolution to enter in conflict resolution procedure, which could end in the city suing the county if a compromised cant be reached between staff or in a joint public meeting between elected officials.Photos by JORDAN OSTERSPC forum tackles transit referendumeTownHall offers citizens answers on budget By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE Pinellas County citizens tweeted, blogged, phoned and asked questions in person during the FY 2015 Budget eTownHall meeting April 9 in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College. Communications officials report that about 250 people logged on to the blog and another 50 attended the hour-long live event. More than 65,000 received phone calls and an untold number watched the event streamed live on the countys website, pinellascounty.org, and on PCCTV. Mark Wilson, news anchor at Fox 13, moderated. County Administrator Bob LaSala answered questions from the public, as did all the commissioners, except Charlie Justice, who was sick. Wilson began the evening talking about results from a recent citizens survey that showed traffic and transit among top concerns. Several eTownHall participants asked transit-related questions. One wanted to know if transit was already part of the Pinellas for Pinellas program. Welch explained that Penny for Pinellas was a separate voter-approved tax that pays for capital improvement projects. Currently, PSTA receives its funding from ad valorem (property taxes). A referendum in November will allow voters to decide to change the method of funding to a Affordable senior housing at Pinellas Heights nears completion By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Pinellas Heights, a new 153-unit complex built for low-income seniors, is nearing completion. The Pinellas County Housing Authority is waiting for the final inspections to be completed to obtain the certificate of occupancy for the building, hopefully this week, said its executive director Debra Johnson. The complex was built at 11411 Ulmerton Road in Largo, next door to the headquarters of the nonprofit. Providing housing that seniors can truly afford is something to be proud of, Johnson said. As the population in Pinellas County is aging, there is a growing need for stable housing for seniors on fixed incomes. Seniors have a special place in my heart, Johnson said. We hear stories all the time about senior citizens making choices between paying bills and buying medicine or food. The complex is 100 percent leased 21 of the units to low-income seniors, earning below 60 percent of the countys median income and 132 to very-low-income seniors, those earning below 50 percent of the median income. Residents will pay 30 percent of their income, whatever that is. There was not a residency requirement, but these residents are local, Johnson said. The residents havent seen inside the complex yet, but theyve seen pictures at briefings to teach them about the leasing requirements prior to signing. Theyre all so excited, Johnson said. You can just hear the excitement when they leave. Most of the apartments are one-Photo by DEBRA JOHNSONSenior residents will soon be moving into Pinellas Heights, the new 153-unit affordable housing complex built by Pinellas County Housing Authority, next to their main offices in Largo. See TRANSIT, page 15A See BUDGET, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE On Nov. 4, registered voters throughout Pinellas will go to the polls to decide on a change in funding for local transportation. Supporters say the additional funding from a 1 percent sales tax compared to the amount available through ad valorem taxes is necessary to improve transportation to provide sustainable economic growth into the future. Opponents say the current funding method would be sufficient with better use of the money. On April 3, the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, based on the Seminole campus, hosted a two-hour public forum Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? Representatives from both sides were invited. SPC Seminole Provost James Olliver moderated the event inside the colleges Digitorium. Don Ewing, cochair of Yes for Greenlight, provided information in support of the Greenlight Pinellas initiative. Barbara Haselden, campaign manager and spokesperson for No Tax for Tracks, presented information for the opposition. SPC plans to use the forum process to cover all the referendums on the November ballot to provide the public an objective and nonpartisan view, Olliver said. A test of the forums ability to help the public make up its mind was used for the first time ever that Thursday night when instant polling via cellphone texting was introduced to the audience. This is probably the first time youve been in an auditorium and you have been told to keep the cell phone on, said David Klement, executive director of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. Klement said the instant poll, used as a straw poll, should provide an indication of what participants think. Before the presentations, 24 people indicated support for Greenlight Pinellas, 11 were against and five were undecided. After, 30 people were in favor, 21 against and only two undecided.In support of GreenlightEach speaker was given 15 minutes to make his or See HOUSING, page 4A See EMS, page 4AFAITH & FAMILYEaster servicesFind a listing of some holiday services scheduled during the week of Easter at places of worship throughout Pinellas County. ...

Due to an increase in reclaimed water availability, the Largo City Commission approved a pilot test program on April 1 to allow the three-day-per-week watering schedule for one year. At the end of the pilot year, reclaimed water availability will be reassessed to determine if the three-day schedule will continue. Allowable watering days are determined by address. Addresses ending in even numbers now can water Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Addresses ending in odd numbers can now water Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Using reclaimed water for irrigation purposes conserves the potable water of Floridas aquifer and reduces the amount of nitrogen that is discharged to Tampa Bay.

4A Largo Leader, April 17, 20141 percent sales tax devoted entirely to transit needs. This is a vitally important initiative in our county, something weve talked about since the 1970s, said Commissioner Janet Long. Long said without transit improvements, the economy would become stagnant. Its 2014. All major metro areas have a way for people to get from the airport to the beach with a transportation option, she said. We dont have it. Commissioner Chair Karen Seel explained that no money is currently available to fund a light rail system, but if the Greenlight Pinellas tax initiative were approved, it would be something coming in the future. Greenlight Pinellas is a transportation plan to move transit forward in Pinellas, said Commissioner Ken Welch. The first part of the plan improves bus services more flex routes and trolley services, evening services and more. The second part is light rail, which will come after. He answered a question as to why the rail couldnt be done by a private company by saying that a public-private partnership could be possible. Commissioner Susan Latvala told a caller that no county government money is spent to fund Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. She said PSTA had a separate budget and revenue stream. County tax money is not spent on PSTA and PSTA money is not spent on county government services. She pointed out that four commissioners sat of the PSTA board and helped oversee how the authoritys money was spent. Seel said the county was working on an interlocal agreement with PSTA that would ensure sales tax revenue would be spent as outlined in the Greenlight plan, should voters approve the 1 percent tax. The sales tax money collected would be passed through the county to PSTA.Budget questionsLaSala answered questions about the FY 2015 budget. He said although the budget was balanced, it would take great care to keep it that way. He explained that costs are continuing to rise faster than revenues. Were looking for ways to be more efficient, he said. One example is construction of a new chiller plant that should be finished in 2015. LaSala said it would help save on air conditioning costs. He recently presented an update to the 10-year budget forecast that showed challenges ahead for the future. Strategic planning is one of the things Im most proud of, said Commissioner Norm Roche, adding that it allowed more flexibility to adjust the budget year to year. He also commented on the survey. The survey is important, he said. It lets us know how were doing. Ninety percent say were meeting or exceeding service levels. Commissioner John Morroni agreed that the survey was important, but said the best feedback came from being out in the community. He pointed out that the survey involved only 800 people, while he attended a recent FAST (Faith and Action in Strength Together) with about 3,000 people in attendance. People are not afraid to tell you what they think, he said. A blogger asked if eliminating the Save Our Homes property tax exemption would give the county enough money to pay for services. Long explained that Save Our Homes was a state law, put into place after voters approved a constitutional amendment. She said voters would have to approve another amendment rescinding Save Our Homes, which she said was unlikely. Another participant asked about the importance of the property appraiser on the budget process. The property appraiser develops objective evaluative data based on tax values, LaSala said. The values are used to develop budget strategies. He said early estimates showed a 3 percent growth in property tax values and could come in higher, as much as 4 or 5 percent. Property values are an important part of our revenue base, he said. A blogger asked if the $5 fee to park in county parks with beach access was working to provide more money. Yes, said Latvala. It has kept us from having to cut staff and be able to do maintenance and landscaping. She said there were no plans to increase the fee. Roche said some people liked that less mowing was being done in the parks, allowing areas to become naturalized again. Another caller asked about funding for Emergency Medical Services and wanted to know if the commission was considering consolidation. Welch explained that due to the state charter governing EMS, the commission did not have the authority to consolidate. Consolidation, in my opinion, needs to happen, he said. We dont need 19 different districts. Meanwhile, county staff is working of saving money through enhancements to the 911 system and other measures, he said. Its important for consumers to recognize that we have the very best fire and EMS in the U.S., Long said. But it is also the most expensive. We need to find other ways to do it. But we have to be sensitive to the publics safety and wellbeing. She said change was difficult due to the political differences of those involved. So many people are resisting change, she said, adding that she had been married to a firefighter, retired now, for 37 years, so she understood the issue. Ive been a strong proponent of consolidation for years, Roche said, adding any change in the EMS system should be done with great care. He said there had been a lot of talk about regional consolidation and collaboration in recent years. We need to make sensible consolidation within our own borders. Welch answered the question about possible decrease in EMS millage, saying it could not go down as long as the cost to provide service continued to increase. On the question about abandoned houses in disrepair around the county, LaSala said the commission had approved adding three positions for code enforcement for this year. But, were mostly complaint driven, he said. And it takes time to make changes, as after notice is served about a problem, people have to be given a chance to resolve the issue. Morroni said the county was inadequate in its code enforcement and talked about an increase in the number of complaints.AccomplishmentsA caller asked the panel about the countys accomplishments. Seel talked about the countys growth and jobs. We had the best year ever in tourism bringing in over $31 million in bed tax revenue, she said. Were among the top counties in the state for tourism. She said the county was bringing in more high paying jobs and had retained more than 1,000 jobs last year. Morroni added that tourists had spent $5.5 billion in Pinellas last year. More than 1 million passengers used the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. Were doing gangbusters right now, he said. Long said with more carriers and Allegiant Air are adding routes, even more people would be coming to the county for business and to visit. They are paying a large percentage of Penny for Pinellas that we dont have to pay, she said.Business growthRoche answered a question about the importance of business growth. Thats one of the main challenges right now, he said. He said the average household income in the county was between $40,000 and $45,000, which causes concerns about the financial stress level on the population. He said most couldnt afford more taxes or fees. But Pinellas is a built-out county, meaning there isnt room to bring in large companies. He said officials needed to revision its business community for the future. Weve got to think different within the space we have, he said. Long said improved transportation options would help create new jobs and business growth along future rail corridors. Seel also fielded a question about construction on U.S. 19 and the hardship it was causing for businesses. She said that thanks to federal money and support from the Florida Department of Transportation, U.S. 19 projects had been fast tracked, meaning they can be completed 25 years ahead of schedule. She said extra money was made available to offer contractors incentives to finish the work sooner. She added that the Gulf-to-Bay span should be opening soon, which will give people an idea of what things will be like when ongoing construction is completed.Other questionsAnother caller asked about volunteer opportunities within county government. LaSala said volunteers were very important, providing 150,000 hours of service, equivalent to $5 million in service in a variety of capacities. They are doing work we wouldnt be able to do otherwise, he said. Seel answered the question about the future of the Waste to Energy plant. She said the contract with Duke Energy continues until 2024. Duke must buy the electricity we produce by burning trash, she said. She said the plant burned 1.5 tons of trash last year. Morroni added that Pinellas had recycled 1 million tons. Seel said due to the Waste to Energy plant, the county had not raised its tipping fee at the dump since 1985. LaSala added that tipping fees provide revenue for a renewal fund that paid for repairs, replacement and maintenance at the plant. Several questions came in about schools. Latvala explained that county government had nothing to do with schools. They elect their own board and have their own taxes, she said. Long, who sits on the Homeless Leadership Council, answered the question about what is being done about homelessness in Pinellas. She said many agencies were working together to assist, especially the fastest growing population of homeless families with children. Were trying to find a solution to get people into a program that can help them rise out of poverty so they can care for themselves, she said. She said some homelessness is tied to mental health issues as well as alcohol and drug abuse. She said many veterans were homeless, which is being addressed by the Veterans Administration and VA hospitals. Theyre doing their best to provide for them, she said. The final question asked if the county would be willing to pay if the Tampa Bay Rays said they wanted a new stadium in the Gateway area. Roche said the days of the taxpayer building stadiums was over. He said he didnt see Pinellas County citizens with an average household income of $43,000 paying for a new stadium. Latvala pointed out that the stadium would be paid for with bed tax money, which is mostly paid by tourists. If the opportunity comes up, there will be a public discussion and we will make the best decision, she said.Largo girls wish is granted as she heads to San Diego ZooCLEARWATER Molly, 8, of Largo lives with malignant neoplasm of the eye but recently embarked on a journey from Clearwater Marine Aquarium to San Diego Zoo courtesy of MakeA-Wish and the United Health Foundation. According to Mollys wish granters, she chose a San Diego Zoo wish because of her love for animals, specifically Australian animals koala bears and kangaroos. Mollys one specific request is to attend the Roar N Snore at the San Diego Zoo, which is an overnight camping experience inside the park with the animals. Finally, she would like to spend a day at the beach with her family surfing. Molly is traveling with her parents Ashley and Sean. Employees from UnitedHealthcare hosted a send-off party for Molly April 13 at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where she was able to meet Winter the dolphin. We are very happy to play a role in making Mollys wish trip come true, said David Lewis, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Florida. Make-A-Wish truly makes a positive impact in our communities and brings joy to so many children courageously facing lifethreatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Since 2007, UnitedHealth Group has funded more than 2,136 wishes through a $7.5 million alliance with Make-A-Wish.Molly, center, is headed to San Diego Zoo as a Make-A-Wish recipient.

Above, Molly with Dennis Leon, vice president of UnitedHealthcare of Florida. BUDGET, from page 1A EMS, from page 1AIm totally in favor of this, but I totally despise government suing government, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said, voicing a fear that the cost of litigation might exceed the funding the city is fighting for. Zimmet assured him otherwise. Theres no case Ive ever handled where the legal fees are $9 million, he said. Mayor Pat Gerard added, I dont think were going to be in this by ourselves. Well be sharing those legal costs. Several of the other fire districts are meeting with their elected officials over the next two weeks to determine what course of action they will take against the county, Willis said. We should know in the next week or so what municipalities will be joining us, if any, she said. In the CARES 2 proposal, two paramedic positions assigned to rescue units at Largos fire stations 41 and 42 would stay in service only 14 hours a day, going out of service during the systems least busy time period between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. The reduction in funded hours would cost Largo $175,000 per year for the next three years. Further, the proposed contract would freeze funding for three years, which would mean the city would lose out on an estimated $2 million in inflation revenue. Commissioner Woody Brown pointed out that when he asked Moeller about the funding freeze, he was told that Pinellas Countys per capita cost for EMS service was way out of line with similar systems across the country. But Brown said he didnt find that to be the case when he did his own research. I spent hours trying to find numbers, and theyre not that easy to find, but all of them are right about where we are. Some of them are much higher, he explained. Its just frustrating that the argument thats given to me to put more burden to our taxpayers it didnt seem like there was any truth to it. Commissioner Michael Smith asked if there had been a response from the county since the citys April 1 meeting, especially after county Administer Bob Lasala had been fired April 15. There has been none, staff said, except when the city tried to fill out a three-page electronic document, listing its requested funding, City Manager Mac Craig said. As soon as you put your numbers in, the software in the system automatically turns into the numbers that they want, Craig explained. I think thats a statement, Gerard said. Holmes said he hoped the county would see the light of day on the issue. They have a new administrator coming in who make look at this in a little different way. That is my sincere hope, he said. During the April 15 meeting, Largo commissioners also: Accepted the Charter Review Committees proposed changes to the Largo charter, along with striking language that requires the mayor to appoint all committee members. The changes will be drafted into a resolution, to be added to the ballot in November elections. Approved a comprehensive study of the I-9 sanitary sewer system within the Kent Place subdivision, which will cost $194,184 and determine possible solutions for problems reported by the residents. The study would be conducted during the rainy season, May through August, and after results are analyzed, provide improvement alternatives and associated costs to the commission by November 2014. Approved the first reading of pension plan changes, as negotiated with fire and police unions over the last three years. Accepted the proposed capital improvements program, discussed in full April 8.

At right, Pinellas Heights apartments facing the back of the complex feature balconies looking out over a pond. HOUSING, from page 1A bedroom units; only 16 have two bedrooms. All units are handicap accessible, offering walk-in showers and wider doorways. All four floors of the complex have laundry facilities. Plus, theres a fitness center, a library and computer center, a crafts and activities room and a verandah stocked with rocking chairs overlooking a pond with a fountain. The Pinellas County Housing Authority, or PCHA, owns the property for Pinellas Heights, formally the Green House Shops. The strip center had fallen into disrepair. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in renovations, the nonprofit decided to do what it does best: provide housing for those in need, Johnson explained. Thats what were here for. When we can do that, were proud, she said. The housing authority had contracts for the project signed by the beginning of 2012. They broke ground on the project in November of that year. Residents will start moving in shifts over the next few weeks, as soon as the certificate of occupancy is obtained. Aside from those ready to move in, 50 people are on the waiting list for the new housing, said Stephanie Baker, president of Norstar Accolade Property Management, the company helping PCHA manage Pinellas Heights. However, she doesnt expect much of a turnover. The apartments are so nicely laid out, I think theyll stay. Theyre just gorgeous, Baker said. PCHA has several other housing projects in the works. The Landing at Cross Bayou, for example, is a gut rehabilitation of an older, 184-unit apartment community in Lealman. Its going to be something where Pinellas County can be very proud. This property is going to be good for the next 30 years, Johnson said. Also, a planning group is brainstorming ideas for the redevelopment of Rainbow Village, about 30 acres and 200 units of public housing, located west of Pinellas Heights on 134th Avenue in Largo. Along with the construction projects themselves, the nonprofit offers a variety of programs, providing public housing as well as affordable housing options for veterans, seniors, disabled residents and those who need assisted living. In the last few years, the organization has offered a family self-sufficiency program, helping participants plan and achieve goals to educate themselves, earn more income, save money and eventually live free of welfare assistance. Another program allows families to use their Section 8 housing voucher toward a mortgage instead of rent. Johnson has been executive director for the Pinellas County Housing Authority since July 2009. Its a job she wouldnt trade it for anything in the world, she said. This is just an opportunity to help more people, as well as help the county. The county itself from south to north needs more housing that people can truly afford, she said. The Pinellas Heights grand opening will be celebrated Friday, May 9, 10 a.m., on the property, 11411 Ulmerton Road.

FDOT reports drop in Pinellas pedestrian fatalitiesAccording to Peter Hsu of the Florida Department of Transportation, the roads were a little safer in Pinellas County last year, particularly for pedestrians and motorcyclists. Speaking recently to the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, Hsu said there was a 33 percent reduction in pedestrian fatalities and a 39 percent reduction in motorcycle fatalities in Pinellas County from 2012 to 2013. These reductions contributed to an overall 3 percent reduction in statewide traffic fatalities in the same year. He credited the reductions to a district-wide program focusing on engineering, enforcement and education strategies. They include the installation of audible vibratory pavement markings, rapid flashing beacons at midblock crosswalks, pedestrian countdown signals, roadway safety audits and follow-up improvements, an education outreach safety campaign and grant funds allocated to assist local police in the enforcement of pedestrian laws. Hsu said 49 percent of last years reduction in Tampa Bay traffic fatalities (39) occurred in Pinellas County (19). He said Pinellas County also had a 39 percent drop in motorcycle fatalities in 2013, going from 23 in 2012 to 14 a year later. Pedestrian fatalities dropped 33 percent, from 30 to 20. Bicycle fatalities dropped minimally in the Tampa Bay area from 10 to 9. Across Florida, traffic fatalities dropped 2.9 percent from 2,427 to 2,357. One of the states worst years in that category was 2006 when 3,365 deaths occurred.Congressman Jolly to host open houseThursday, April 17, 3 to 6 p.m., at the Seminole District Office located on the campus of St. Petersburg College, 9210 113th St. Refreshments will be served.

Speaking at an April 8 work session, LaSala said the telephone survey was very, very accurate and provided a very precise bit of feedback from our citizens. Sarah Lindemuth of HCP, a national research, strategy and marketing firm headquartered in Tampa, agreed, saying the 2014 results showed the highest percent of favorable responses on quality of life questions since the county implemented the use of an annual survey in 2011. The random digit dial telephonic survey, conducted Feb. 1-17, involved 800 residents 200 from north county, 200 from mid county, 200 from south county and 200 residents who live on the beaches. The goal: to measure citizen expectations and perceptions regarding key drivers for citizen qualify of life, to determine strengths and opportunities for improvements, according to Lindemuths PowerPoint presentation. She said the survey included calls to the countys large base of long-term residents as well as newer residents, who tend to be younger, have children and higher levels of income. She said the strongest ambassadors for the county are age 65 and older, those new within the past 10 years, those with higher education and incomes above $50,000. The number who said they would recommend Pinellas as a place to retire, live, raise children and/or work increased some significantly as compared to 2012 and 2013 survey answers. Nine out of 10 said they would recommend the county as a place to live and retire, and almost nine in 10 would recommend Pinellas as a place to work and raise children. Perceptions of current quality of life, compared to five years ago, significantly improved versus 2013, continuing an upward trend, she said. More respondents indicated optimism for future quality of life. She also reported that citizens trust and confidence in county government significantly exceeds trust and confidence levels reported in a National Gallup Poll. Few of those surveyed said they had plans to move from Pinellas within the next year. Most who participated in the survey said the county is better aligning with expectation on a majority of community characteristics. Results were not as favorable as to meeting expectations for transportation and economic factors, she said. The biggest gap was for traffic flow. Pinellas has a strong base of tenured residents nearly four in five, or 79.9 percent, have lived in the county for more than 10 years. The survey showed an 11 percent increase in new residents, those who have lived in Pinellas for four years or less. Lindemuth pointed out a few statistical differences between responses from residents of unincorporated areas versus those who live in incorporated (municipalities) area in terms of whether expectations are being met. The biggest differences were reported in water drainage management and having a point of contact for concerns. In unincorporated areas, 82.5 percent said the county was meeting expectations for water drainage management as compared to 76.2 percent in incorporated areas. As to a point of contact for concerns, 78.7 percent of those surveyed in unincorporated areas said expectations were being met for having a point of contact for concerns, 3.8 percent said expectations were exceeded and 14.8 said expectations were not being met. In municipal areas, 67.4 percent said the availability of a point of contact met expectations, 9.9 percent said it exceeded expectations and 6.5 percent said expectations were not being met. Responses exude more optimism than in prior studies for quality of life, Lindemuth said, when talking about the trends shown by the survey. Citizens continue to challenge the county on the topics of economy, transportation and the natural environment. Other trends of note reveal job-related challenges, she said. Reaction to select transportation topics suggests congestion remains a detractor to overall resident experience, she added LaSala said he was pleased with the results. Im proud of what this tells us, he said. But it doesnt mean there is not room for improvement.

He also built a cooking fire pit, provided a safety fence, and enclosed a water source. The project took over 160 hours of work by Nagel and his fellow Scouts. He also regularly volunteers at Heritage Village, giving tours and providing information during festivals and other events. Nagel started in scouting as a Tiger with Cub Scout Pack 431 and eventually earned the Arrow of Light.

12A Viewpoints Leader, April 17, 2014Ive been reading about the recent troubles college fraternities have gotten into because of two things: alcohol and hazing. Just when were convinced that all the customs of the world have changed, and that the old days and old ways are gone forever, we hear about dear old Alpha Gamma Ray or some other fraternity getting sued or thrown off campus because of killing one of its pledges by forcing him to drink a gallon of vodka within half an hour. As in days of yore, everyone throws up their hands and exclaims, How awful! How could this happen in our enlightened society? So lets think about that. For openers, start with the booze. Historians tell us that alcohol was invented about three seconds after the Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago. (Im exaggerating, of course, but I often do this to make a point.) My point is that alcohol has been around ever since humans discovered (by accident or intent) how to make it. Since that time, alcohol has been part of life. One theory says man was a hunter/gatherer until he began growing crops that could be fermented or distilled. He soon learned that by tossing in some sugar and other ingredients and stirring the mix for a few weeks, he could produce a marvelous beverage. When swallowed, it gave him a whole new outlook on life. He shouted, No more hunting deer and groundhogs for me Im gonna be a farmer! Humans male and female, young and old have been enjoying and/or dying from alcohol ever since. Despite hundreds of years of medical research, no one has found exactly why most people drink in moderation (or not at all) while others become an alcoholic gradually or from their first sip. Alcoholism treatment has emerged from the dark ages, but the success rates of the various methods are open to question. Thats because alcoholism research is often a foggy field filled with unreliable subjects (active drunks) and the inability of the various experts to agree on just what alcoholism is. Its a mistake to think that alcohol and fraternities are automatically linked. Theyre not. Throughout our country we find fraternities (and their colleges) that have few regulations on alcohol use, while others have successfully clamped down on student drinking. But in America banning booze is a tricky endeavor (witness our nations 13-year disaster with the Prohibition Amendment). It has the same predictable success rate as banning sex or Big Macs. My own college prohibited alcohol for one year in the 1950s; the result was a farce. All in all, its unrealistic to expect college students (whether or not theyre members of a fraternity) or any other segment of the population to refrain from drinking. Even so, society is justified in trying to ban drunken driving, the serving of alcohol to minors and other abuses. Hazing is another ancient tradition that grabs headlines from time to time, at least when it results in injury or death to its victims, who are usually initiates or recruits. The experts arent sure where hazing started, but variations of it are found in organizations around the globe. To fully examine hazing is to risk losing ones belief in human decency. What in our souls can justify imposing rituals ranging from humiliation to sheer torture on our brothers and sisters to punish their unwitting crime of being outsiders who merely wish to come inside? I underwent mild (and non-alcoholic) hazing twice in my checkered history. The first occasion was when, as crew members on our ship reaching the equator en route to Korea in 1951, my fellow polliwogs (who had not previously crossed the equator) and I were subjected to disgusting but good-natured abuse by the shellbacks (sailors who had earlier experienced the tradition.) Other hazing came when I chose a fraternity. One night my pledge class was seated at tables on which the actives (upper-classmen) had placed small dishes of canned fruit topped with whipped cream, which was actually shaving cream. The actives took joy at watching the pledges gag as they swallowed the first mouthful. Otis, a senior bullyboy with whom I shared a mutual loathing, stood waiting for me to retch. But I fooled him. I calmly swallowed most of the fruit and shaving cream, to the amazement of the actives and the rage of my enemy Otis. It was one of the most satisfying incidents of my life. To my mind the truth about extreme hazing, wherever it occurs, is this: it is bullying, pure and simple. Beneath its surface almost always lurks sadism. But Im neither an expert nor a sadist. So forgive me if Im wrong.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.C. Fred Jones was always good for a great quote. I remember talking to the former Auburndale state legislator in the 1980s about the possibility of the Legislatures session having to be extended for a month. The shorter, the better, he said, because anytime the Legislature meets, your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are in danger. Still holds true. And when the Legislature meets, common sense goes on sabbatical. For instance, why are some of our state leaders hell bent on making voting more difficult and killing people easier? A bill sponsored by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, would allow people to conceal firearms without a permit during emergencies, including riots. Who came up with this idea? Yosemite Sam? We also checked in on Gov. Rick Scott to see what hes been up to lately. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? Scott said. Yes, sir. Many times. You have to be careful while youre walking in Tallahassee; its easy to trip on the puppet strings extending from special interests to lawmakers. Wouldnt be surprised if Senate President Don Gaetz will soon do a commercial for Budweiser based on his conversation recently with the Associated Press. The craft beer industry is trying to get the Legislature to approve the use of half-gallon growlers, but Gaetz told AP that he supports his friend, an Anheuser-Busch distributor in his district. We checked in with Gaetz. Mr. Gaetz, why are you opposed to loosening up regulations for the craft beer industry? Doesnt that go against the grain, so to speak, of the Republicans distaste for overregulation? This is the famous Budweiser beer, Gaetz said. We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood aging produces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price. Time shall tell whether Gaetz will fall off his high Clydesdale while tripping over puppet strings. Surprised that the craft beer bars havent put his face on their dartboards. They probably dont realize how easy it is to find his face. It can be downloaded at www.flsenate.gov/ Senators/s1. Oh-oh. Gov. Scott is calling again. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? he said. Yes, sir. Thank you. The governor these days has been busy announcing new major road construction projects such as building an elevated expressway linking Interstate 275 and U.S. 19 in our area and widening the last four-lane section of Interstate 95. I didnt bother to ask him if he has given any further thought to funding high-speed rail or similar mass transit projects. If he ever got on board mass transit, to quote C. Fred Jones, Ill eat my hat at high noon in front of the county courthouse. And the county courthouse may be the only place were going to be able to drop off election ballots if some lawmakers keep toying with voting laws. Meanwhile, Gaetz is on the line again. Hello, senator. This Buds for you, Tom. Sir? Click. At the time of this writing, yet to be determined is whether the cowboys in the Legislature will pistol whip their colleagues in line to support the shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later-in-a-riot legislation. Summarizing what Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in the Tampa Bay Times, its the definition of insanity. Thank you, sheriff. Youre the canary in the coal mine. I long to see the day when Florida legislators put the interests of their constituents ahead of special interests, Yosemite Sam, Budweiser or whatever. But Im an ironclad doubting Thomas. If common sense ever takes precedence over special interests in Tallahassee, Ill eat my Florida Gator visor at high noon in front of a sellout FSU crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium and wash it down with a growler full of brew.

Tom Germond Common sense lacking in capitalCross your fingers using crosswalksEditor: How many pedestrians need to be killed on Gulf Boulevard before we stop the illusion that a pedestrian is safer in a crosswalk? North Redington Beach completed a $3.2 million project which included: to enhance safety to the existing Gulf Boulevard crosswalks changes will improve pedestrian safety, February 2014. The following month three pedestrians were killed trying to cross Gulf Boulevard, March 2014. The Department of Transportation concluded a seven-year study May 1, 2010, and reached this conclusion: to 1 ratio a pedestrian is more likely to have an accident inside versus outside crosswalk. Midblock crosswalks are dangerous (Franklin County Traffic Safety Board) advises four lane roads with 10,000 traffic or more mid-block crosswalks should not be considered even if a pedestrian safety median separates opposing traffic lanes. The North Redington Beach Gulf Boulevard traffic count is 14,551+/(Pinellas County records) All being mid-block crosswalks. North Redington Beach has more crosswalks per linear feet on Gulf Boulevard in .9 mile of a 13.5-mile segment of BIG-C beach towns stretching from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater. Beach Beacon article April 2 titled BIG-C focuses on pedestrian safety quoted Indiana man who died would probably be still alive had he checked for cars. I believe Jed Gettinger Indiana Man would probably be alive had there not been a mid-block crosswalk on Gulf Boulevard with a traffic count of 14,551 +/giving him a false sense of security he was safe in a crosswalk. Ive been crossing Gulf Boulevard for over a half century, never having one problem crossing the way my mother taught me: Look Both Ways. I cross at places where it seems safest. I trust myself to determine when and where its safe to cross: not a sign, flashing light, paint on the pavement or waving a yellow flag. I believe officials make the best decisions with the references they have at the time. Im here to offer some new references that will hopefully enable safer decisions for our community. Disagree? Then cross Gulf Boulevard using a crosswalk. My concern is you will not be around to offer rebuttal. My heart goes out to the families of Darrel Johnson, Patrick McClean and Jed Gettinger who lost their lives attempting to cross Gulf Boulevard safely. John Messmore North Redington BeachColumn on Affordable Care not correctEditor: We wife and I have lived in Harbor Bluffs/Belleair for 35 years. We have enjoyed the Belleair Bee for many years. I cannot remember the Bee having a nationally syndicated opinion writer in the past. I respectfully suggest that Debra Saunders does not enhance your publication one iota. Her recent piece on the Affordable Care Act is just plain not correct. I strongly suggest you reconsider the need for a national columnist. Alan E. James Jr. Belleair A few months ago I surrendered my Verizon 4G smart phone. It was an ostentatious instrument, capable of doing everything from reporting the exact time in Baruun-Urt, Mongolia, to broadcasting country music from Toad Suck, Ark. For two years my trusty Android robbed me of hours upon hours of time as I searched the Web for tasty treats like akutag, a frosty Arctic dessert made from seal or moose fat, to goodies from the Weird Food Club of New York City that includes scorpion with chili peppers, broiled snake, goose intestines, and brain soup. Ummm. Yummy! Then there was the probing of news sites from around the world, or listening to live stream radio stations from distant places like Fiji, Iceland, Fairbanks, and Tampa. (OK, so Tampa is not that far away.) I thrilled to the days of yesteryear on an old time radio app as the Lone Ranger galloped across the plains with his faithful companion, Tonto, or the creaking door as the Shadow emitted his bizarre guffaw. I had about 100 apps on my Android phone that included a pedometer, camera, heart rate monitor, maps, instructions, communications, games and even a nifty smell-oapp that allegedly spewed the fragrance of morning coffee, searing burgers on a grille, and even sensuous come-up-to-my-placesometime perfume. I never did get that one to work. Although people warned that smart phones are as addictive as recreational drugs at a meth clinic, I signed the contract that catapulted me into cyber space. Vanished were the days of watching the human entertainment at Walmart. I could watch the People of Walmart website instead. At night I remained secluded in a rear room punching the minuscule keyboard to chat with computer-generated friends I never met. I played Scrabble with a woman in Japan who created unrecognizable words like dapifer and sepulchral to beat me into submission. I exchanged messages with a farmer in a small North Dakota town who bragged about being able to start the family pick-up truck in 56 degrees below zero weather. AT&T developed the first wireless network in 1946, but the gizmo that combined a telephone and computer didnt come along until 1973. By the late 1990s the Palm Pilot and the Windows Pocket PC were gaining popularity. Early smart phones had limited functionality and, with the exception of Japan, were relatively unknown in most of the world. Then along came the BlackBerry, dubbed the CrackBerry, due to its addictive appeal. It reigned supreme until Apple and Android versions were introduced a few years later. Apple in 2007 ushered in the first iPhone that offered a touch screen to replace the diminutive stylus keyboard. The Googlebacked Android arrived two years later. The rest is history. The future holds many wonders such as folding phones sans batteries that will be powered by radio, television and cellular signals. Google Glass ... eyeglasses with built-in mini computers ... is being developed along with surgically implanted micro projectors that will beam touch screens on hard surfaces such as desks, tables and even public restroom walls. The technology will be available to the public within five years. The smart phones, numbered at approximately 500 million worldwide, also create environmental, social and other challenges. They contain toxic chemicals like arsenic and mercury. They are the prominent target of thieves and other villains. They cause innumerable motor vehicle accidents thanks to inattentive drivers who simply must check messages and websites while piloting 2 tons of steel down a highway at 65 mph. Then there are the security issues, too plentiful to mention here. People spend more time on their smart phones than interacting with friends, neighbors and relatives. I once saw a mother and young daughter at a tire store communicating with each other via smart phone ... while seated in the same waiting room! What it boils down to is that people dont talk anymore; they text or email or leave messages on Facebook and other social media sites. Kids fail to foster human relationships, and are clueless about the world beyond modern electronics. I enjoy not being held hostage by my Android smart phone. It now rests soundless in a desk drawer; its screen forever extinguished while I blissfully converse with people face to face and, for better or worse, remains somewhat ignorant of the frivolities in cyberspace. I now have an old-fashioned flip phone if someone needs to talk with me. And if I burrow around the attic long enough I can probably exhume my prehistoric Ma Bell black dial phone with a real ringer that graced my desk a million years ago. And who knows ... maybe I can invent a holster of sorts to carry it on my hip. I could actually launch a whole new fad!Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor.

Ewing went first. He took the audience back to the mid-1960s when Disney began its plans to build the City of Tomorrow in Orlando. The goal was to create a pedestrian-friendly and car-free environment. He said while Greenlight Pinellas wasnt intended to turn the county into a Disneyworld, the plan did include the idea of providing walkable communities with improved transit and reduced use of vehicles. Projections show, without change, Pinellas future is one of more congestion on local roads and longer commute times. Ewing said continual widening of existing roads is getting more difficult due to lack of space and safety concerns. That cant be our only approach, he said. He advocates Greenlight Pinellas with plans for improved bus service and a future light rail system, running for Clearwater to St. Petersburg with the potential for a connection to Tampa and points beyond to provide regional connectivity. Supporters of Greenlight say it is more than just light rail. They say that better transportation system will create jobs and encourage economic development, enhance quality of life, as well as support the environment. Adding nighttime hours to the bus schedule will allow workers on the late shift to use public transit to get home something they cant do now. Students taking classes at SPCs different campuses will find it easier to use the bus system with decreased wait times of 15 minutes at stops. Tourists will be able to get from the airport to the beach using public transportation. He encouraged the public to visit pinellasontrack.com for complete information. Its a real life look at what enhanced bus service and rail can do, he said. Ewing said the plan years in the making was well vetted and had been analyzed by two third party experts Ernst and Young, financial auditors, and HTNB, a national engineering and transportation consulting firm. He explained the different routes that make up a variety of proposed enhanced bus services, running throughout the county. Light rail doesnt appear for 10 years, he said; however, the route is already mapped out. The majority of rail lines are on public land, meaning fewer problems with right of way. Once the Greenlight Pinellas plan is complete, 80 percent of the population will live within 1/4 mile of a bus rapid transit station and 86 percent will work within 1/4 mile of a station, he said. Greenlight Pinellas plan relies on an increased level of funding that would come from a 1 percent sales tax as opposed to collection of ad valorem taxes. Ewing said for some, taxes would go down. For example, a taxpayer of an owner-occupied home with a median value of $161,600 would pay $81.52 less with a sales tax, per estimates from IRS studies. He pointed out that the sales tax would not be levied on groceries or medical items and would be limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase. He said a person could buy a car for $20,000 and not pay more than $50 in transit tax. He added that tourists were expected to pay about 1/3 of the tax money generated. He said if the tax were approved, an oversight committee of citizens would monitor how the money is spent, as would County Commissioners. He said Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority the receiver of the proposed transit tax money was fiscally responsible, receiving consistently clean audits of its finances. He urged the public to vote yes for Greenlight.Against GreenlightHaselden then presented the case against Greenlight. She pointed out that it cost a family of four about $100 a day to go to Disney. She said if they stayed at a hotel there, ate at the restaurants and paid other expenses, the cost would be $4,500 to $5,000 an amount not affordable for everyone. Disney was an entrepreneur and a private business, she said. She told the audience that public transportation was stagnant. She showed a chart that showed 50 percent of the U.S. used public transportation post World War II. Since then, the number has dropped to 2 percent. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 1.6 percent use public transportation in Pinellas. Her source was Heritage Foundation: Public Transit: A Bad Product at a Bad Price. She showed a photo of a new PSTA bus that she said cost $650,000. Currently there are 200 in the PSTA fleet, she said, with plans for more. She argued that PSTA doesnt pay for itself, and said about 75 percent of its operations were subsidized. About 22 percent of PSTAs $63 million operating budget comes from federal or state grants, another 22 percent from passenger fares and about 53 percent from ad valorem taxes. The capital budget includes another $28 million. Haselden said her numbers come from PSTA. She said it costs about $7 a ride with riders paying an average of 91 cents, meaning in total PSTA is subsidized by 87 percent. She showed a chart of the countys property values and pointed to the decrease after 2007 when the recession hit. She said the amount of money PSTA collected dropped from $38 million to $26 million due to the decline in property values. She said a check of past years budgets shows the agency spending money in 2002 and continuing to spend until 2007 when it began to slow down. Budget cuts followed including staff layoffs. Then, the agency raised its millage rate, and spending increased again, including hiring of staff, Haselden said. They outspend their income, she said. She talked about a statement made by PSTA CEO Brad Miller, who said if no new sustainable funding source is found, PSTA would have to cut 30 percent in 2016. PSTA is at a crossroads, she said. She talked about the negative aspects of light rail, including the difference between high-speed and light rail, which causes congestion at intersections. She is opposed to increasing the sales tax from 7 percent to 8 percent. PSTA currently receives $32 million from ad valorem taxes and would receive $148 million from a 1 percent sales tax, she said. She objects to Greenlight supporters calling it a tax swap. She said unless it was revenue neutral it was no swap. She said if an additional 1 percent sales tax was approved, Pinellas would have the highest in the state, which cannot be good for business. She said with more potential revenue, PSTA could increase its credit limit and debt to the taxpayer. She talked about false premises and claims by Greenlight that there would be more than 200,000 new people in Pinellas by 2040. Thats not true, she said. The population is not growing. She disputed claims of record ridership being touted almost every month by PSTA. She said the numbers are inflated by how they count rides. She gave an example of a single trip with multiple bus transfers. She said each time a passenger boards a bus, it is counted as a ride, so a single person taking the bus to the mall could be counted as six rides. The (ridership) numbers havent changed in eight years, she said. She talked about empty buses and buses running with only two to three people. She said PSTA paid $700,000 for a study that showed the top five routes were so busy they were almost dangerous and other routes not performing. She said the entire Greenlight Plan was just a promise. There is no guarantee in writing, she said. She said people dont want to give up roadway lanes to dedicated use by light rail or buses. She showed a chart of costs and fares for several metro areas using light rail, pointing out that none of them came close to breaking even. In Pinellas, theres just no need, she said. U.S. 19 is almost finished. I275 corridor is going to connect to U.S. 19. The roadway will have no stoplights, she said. Haselden believes public transportation should be bid out to the private sector if PSTA cant provide safe reliable service to 1.6 percent of our neighbors, for those who want a ride that doesnt take all day to get to their destination. She pointed out that PSTA would continue to receive grant money and fare money on top of the projected increase from the sales tax a considerable increase in overall funding.Questions and answersThe presenters also fielded questions from the audience. One led to a lengthy discussion on population density. The biggest problem is that we dont have the density needed (for rail), Haselden said. You go from a low density area to another low density area. She compared Pinellas Countys population to that of New York City, which has enough people to support enhanced systems. She also said light rail wasnt needed to stimulate the economy, she said it could be done using Bus Rapid Transit. Ewing disputed the statement that the proposed light rail route connects two low-density areas, stating that Pinellas County has the highest density of any county in the state. He said the rail line would travel between the countys two most dense areas, traveling through Pinellas Park and Largo on its way. Over time, this will force people to live around rail lines and in high rises increasing density narrowing our territory, Haselden said. Were used to a large territory. Another question led to a discussion on economic development. Ewing said the 16 rail stations would be located away from current developed areas onto land not currently developed, which would be good for the local economy. Haselden said the Federal Transit Administration described development around rail lines as redistributed growth, not new growth. She gave the example of the effect malls had on downtown areas in the recent past. This will drive people to shop near rail lines, she said. One man, who identified himself as a veteran, asked if the steel for the tracks, trains and other components would come from America or overseas. Brad Miller, PSTA CEO, said federal law requires it all to be made in America. Ewing answered anothers concern by saying Greenlight Pinellas would provide options and alternatives. Some would use (public transportation) every day and some on occasion, he said. He gave an example of a trip to the airport, thus saving money on parking. Its about getting people off the roads to not have to expand the roads, he said. We can only expand the roads a certain amount. Were running out of land. We need to educate people that they can do something else. Haselden said it was more important to work on the roads. Ninety-eight percent of us use the roads, she said.Dolphin spring is not yet sprung yetThe dolphin spring remains un-sprung. Three recent events at sea whisper of its coming. But it is late. The dolphin spring is marked by a return of dolphins to the Intracoastal Waterway estuary from their winter quarters. Their winter quarters are presumably the Gulf of Mexico. But no one really knows where our local dolphins go during the cold months, which, when you think about it, is strange. The first maritime sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung is the flirting of the water temperature. Why is the water temperature in our local backwaters in the 60s for most of the cold months and in the 80s for most of the warm months, but is so briefly at the transition temperatures of the 70s in between? Water temperatures have been flirting with the telltale 70-degree mark in the last couple of weeks, coyly approaching it and then retreating from it bashfully. I should ask my database if dolphins begin returning in earnest once the water temperatures hit the 70s or it only seems that way. A second sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the small squad of teens we encountered the other day. Their message was double-speak. We found them as a quartet of three males (VC, Oyster and PC) and one female (Babyface) that swelled into a quintet as they headed west and joined teen female AM. They were uncharacteristically quiet for teens. The part of their double-speak that said the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was PC. PC has been a sign of spring at sea for the last two years. PC is 9 years old now. Capt. John Heidemann and I watched him grow up. In fact, we were allowed to babysit him. His mom P dropped him off at the boat, went off to hunt hundreds of yards away, returned, picked him up and off they went! Obligingly, while she was gone, PC gave us precious footage of his game of Toss the Horsetail. PC left home and became independent of P at the unheard-of age of 16 months. Thus, we are doubly pleased to see him. It means he continues to prosper amid the many dangers of the sea. In the bottlenose bull way, he threads through those dangers to find what he likes. When he finds it, he stays where it is. When he does not, he continues his search of the seas. We did not see PC in 2010 or 2011, and only glimpsed him briefly in the spring 2012 when he swung through to check out our local waters. He returned four months later after Thanksgiving. He must have found something he liked because he stayed through July 4, 2013. He left again save for one appearance. Thus, we have not seen this strapping young bull for six months. But he not only returned. He returned to the company of VC and Oyster. They must be friends, for they are ones he has appeared with in the past. The other part of the teen double-speak was that teens are still here. As the adults return in the spring, teens vanish or become more circumspect. In particular, teen bulls contra-indicate the more mature (more beat-up) bulls. Once we see those pairs of big bruisers in the backwaters (Ouch and Fishlips, Grin and Twin Dip, Ekard and Spry, Midface and Lax, Brick and Nose, N and Riptab, among others), we are unlikely to seeing teen bulls like Oyster or VC until the fall. In keeping with his early maturity, PC is not intimidated by these bruisers as other teen bulls are. A third sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the milling mess of moms and kids that we found the week before. The milling mess was fun and frustrating to watch. There were at least a dozen dolphins. They were a nursery group that included six calves. With all those kids, there was lots of action! The three wiggliest were born last year in 2013. This spring, they are entering the stimulating phase of dolphin development called Babys First Spring; more on these bracing activities later in the season! The little wigglies included our second youngest calf from 2013, Qs mysterious calf Qody. Qody is pronounced Cody but alphabetizes with mom Q in the database. I hope Q stays in Johns Pass so I can watch her raise Qody the way I watched her raise Qball. (No new word on Qballs injuries, reported last week in Dolphin Watch.) The three wiggly dolphins were poked and prodded and rolled by three older calves until the seas bubbled. But they did not stay. They had proverbially poked their heads into Photo by ANN WEAVERTwig with a twig. Sticks little calf Twig mouths a horsetail toy as it waits for mom to return from a hunting trip. Its toy is visible in its mouth if you look closely.Johns Pass as if to see if they found whatever it is the dolphins come here to find. They did not find it, for they then returned to the mysterious locale from which they had come. This gives me another idea to check in the database. How often have dolphins appeared in early spring, not found what they were looking for and vanished until some later date? Is the pool still too cold? Oh yeah, one final clue that spring is almost un-sprung. Local bull Scrapefin ran into local bull DD2 the other day and vanished in short order. DD2 will not tolerate Scrapefin in his vicinity. Scrapefin knows it. Ahh, things seem to be nice and normal!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

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.

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 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.

Here is Rydell Highs senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding Burger Palace Boys and their gumsnapping, hip-shaking Pink Ladies in bobby socks and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head greaser Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their Summer Nights as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as Greased Lightnin, We Go Together, There Are Worse Things I Could Do and Youre the One That I Want recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals place Grease among the worlds most popular musicals.

Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marloe leases a house in New England to write her autobiography. Dealing with her nosy omnipresent neighbors turns out to be more difficult than she imagined so she invents a mad homicidal sister who is kept locked in an upstairs room.

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.Gulfport Gulfport Art Walk, Saturday, April 19, 6 to 10 p.m., on Beach Boulevard in Gulfport.

Of course, it isnt and, according to the Gregorian calendar, the first day of summer falls on June 21. But Hollywood doesnt pay much attention to such pesky details. As far as the film studios are concerned, the drive to fill theaters by hyping an endless parade of potential blockbusters marks the start of summer. That procession generally commences in early May although it seems to be arriving earlier and earlier each year. Last summers blockbuster lineup kicked off with Iron Man 3, which followed the previous summers box office champion, Marvels The Avengers. Iron Man 3 grossed $1.2 billion worldwide last year. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is Marvel Studios first big hit of the year, bringing in plenty of revenue since its release earlier this month. As of this past weekend, the film had grossed about $477 million worldwide. The summer movie lineup features many more superheroes hoping to cash in on the comicbook-to-big-screen bandwagon. Its likely one or more will be this years top-earning blockbuster. But what is a blockbuster? Websters defines the term as something notably expensive, effective, successful, large or extravagant. The 1975 film Jaws ushered in the era of the summer blockbuster. Movie studios adopted a marketing strategy focusing on the release of at least one supergrossing flick no later than July 4. Early examples of summer blockbusters include Star Wars, released May 25, 1977; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, released June 4, 1982; Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, released May 23, 1984; and Batman, released June 23, 1989. Each of these films had exceptional opening weekend revenues. Following is a list of this years 10 most anticipated summer blockbusters. Only time will tell which ones will go on to become spectacular Hollywood cash cows and which ones will turn out to be box office bombs.No. 1 X-Men: Days of Future PastRelease date: May 23 Cast: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit Those lovable mutants are back in this adaptation of the Uncanny X-Men storyline Days of Future Past by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. An ensemble of X-Men members work to prevent a war that will lead to a dystopian future and possibly the extinction of their kind. The film is unique in that it is a sequel to both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class and features cast members from both incarnations of the franchise.No. 2 The Amazing Spider-Man 2Release date: May 2 Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and B.J. Novak The web-slinger is back with more Peter Parker angst. Just as Parker is getting comfortable playing the hero, he is forced to face formidable villains in this electrifying sequel. Thats right: Electro is in town and SpiderMan is about to realize that all his enemies seem to have one thing in common: Oscorp.No. 3 GodzillaRelease date: May 16 Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston In the immortal words of Blue Oyster Cult: Oh, no, there goes Tokyo go, go Godzilla. Its not even worth guessing how many Godzilla movies have been made since the original 1954 classic. The most recent American adaptation hit the screen in 1998 and starred Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno. Although it earned a significant amount of derision, it still did well at the box office. Now, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are ready to resurrect the monster for another generation and in the insanely popular and nearly Oscar-worthy trailers, actor Bryan Cranston best known for portraying Walter White in Breaking Bad vehemently sounds the alarm. This one could be epic.No. 4 MaleficentRelease date: May 30 Cast: Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville Disney has taken the iconic villainess from its classic 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty and crafted her story into a dark fantasy. Audiences will learn how betrayal led to Maleficents malevolent mischief.No. 5 Transformers 4: Age of ExtinctionRelease date: June 27 Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver Michael Bay apparently doesnt have anything else to work on, so, why not crank out another Transformers film. This will be the fourth installment in the franchise and someone must have realized it was time to shake things up a bit. This one features a new cast Shia LaBeouf is out, Mark Wahlberg is in and, for the first time in Bays ongoing series, the Autobots and Decepticons are joined by Dinobots. This obviously begs the question: How long before Hollywood decides to pit kaiju against Dinobots? No. 6 Dawn of the Planet of the ApesRelease date: July 11 Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi SmitMcPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer The sequel to 2011s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set about a decade after the events of the first film and after an epidemic has decimated humankind. The survivors find themselves facing a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar. In this sci-fi survival-of-the-fittest scenario, war between ape and man seems unavoidable.No. 7 Jupiter AscendingRelease date: July 18 Cast: Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James DArcy and Tim Pigott-Smith In this sci-fi action adventure film, Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a housecleaner plagued by a lifetime of bad breaks. Then one day Caine played by Channing Tatum shows up and Jupiter discovers that her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.No. 8 Guardians of the GalaxyRelease date: Aug. 1 Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro With Fantastic Four and The XMen tied up at Twentieth CenturySummer movie lineup Fox, Marvel Studios has decided its next big push in the unfolding Marvel Cinematic Universe will be a lesser-known property: Guardians of the Galaxy. While one doesnt need to be a comic book aficionado to name at least a few members of The Avengers, it is unlikely that the average person could cough up the names of this ragtag bunch: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. There are a few others, but so far, these folks seem to be the only ones who will make it to the big screen for this installment unless Adam Warlock shows up in a cameo. To become a blockbuster, this film has to appeal to more than Marvels core fan base. Early trailers have emphasized both the science fiction and humor components of the story. It wouldnt be a surprise if Marvel Studios tossed in a few surprise appearances by one or two of their hottest properties. Robert Downey Jr. isnt that busy, after all.No. 9 LucyRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an actionthriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. The trailers for this film look spectacular, although the story premise seems awfully similar to 2011s thriller Limitless. No. 10 Into the StormRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence Disaster movie genre, meet found footage genre. In Into the Storm, professional storm chasers and not-sosmart thrill-seekers eager to get the perfect picture of a tornado capture the destruction of the town of Silverton during a really bad weather day. Those who adored Twister will likely find this glimpse at Mother Natures dark side appealing. But wait theres more Every summer, there are a few surprise hits films that might not quite reach blockbuster status, but that outperform expectations and earn far more than they Photo courtesy of WALT DISNEY PICTURES Photo by NIKO TAVERNISE Photo courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOS Photo courtesy of UNIVERSAL PICTURESAbove, Scarlett Johansson stars in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

These sleeper hits are often first screened in limited release, distributed to select art house theaters and shown at festivals.

Grammy Music Revolution Project returns to Ruth Eckerd HallCLEARWATER The Grammy Museums acclaimed Music Revolution Project, an educational initiative developed in 2012, has confirmed its return to the Tampa Bay area, as announced by Bob Santelli, executive director of the museum. Having debuted as a pilot program two years ago in Kansas City, Mo., and for the first time in the Tampa Bay area last year, the Grammy Museums Music Revolution Project offers talented youth in the area the chance to engage in musical workshops, songwriting courses and mentoring sessions as well as an opportunity to record the material theyve written and to perform their new work live. Students will attend the entire four-week program at Ruth Eckerd Hall from July 21 to Aug. 15 where they will participate in an intensive curriculum including instruction, rehearsals and mentoring with Grammy Award-winning artists, directors and composers. The program will be housed at the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts at Ruth Eckerd Hall, providing students with access to professional spaces as well as a private recording studio on-site. The workshops will conclude with a performance at the all-new Capitol Theatre on Friday, Aug. 15. Last year, 24 students ages 14 to 21 were selected from Tampa Bay-area schools including Berkeley Preparatory School, Blake High School, Calvary Christian High School, Gibbs High School, The University of Tampa, St. Petersburg College, River Ridge High School and Tarpon Springs High School. Applications for the program will be available soon through the Grammy Museums website at www.grammymusuem.org. This national music education initiative was made possible for Tampa Bay area students by the support from the Yob Family Foundation as well as a variety of local Tampa Bay businesses and corporations. The program is entirely free to students who have been selected to participate. We are thrilled to be producing our second year of the Grammy Museums Music Revolution Project and having selected REH as our official affiliate, said Bob Santelli in a press release. Santelli is executive director of the Grammy Museum. Through the passion and commitment of our first-class partners, paired with a dynamic music and arts community in the Tampa Bay region, it is our hope that we can help develop a new generation of innovative music talent. Arts education has been shown to improve students scores on standardized tests, make them more likely to go to college, increase their marketability in the workforces, as well as bring joy into their lives, said Lisa Yob, director of philanthropy for the Yob Family Foundation. We could not be more proud to help bring this landmark program to Tampa Bay for a second year. I am ecstatic that Ruth Eckerd Hall is a part of this incredible opportunity for these students, said Zev Buffman, president and CEO of Ruth Eckerd Hall. We welcome them and our partners at the Grammy Museum with open arms. A key component of this years program will be the addition by GRP of full, state-of-the-art equipment that will be installed in the available recording studio space and control room currently located at the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Students will be able to record their works in progress, edit, write, and record the final product for distribution to music publishers and record companies. Created to broaden musical and creative skills while helping establish relationships, the program is also designed to increase self-esteem, help students develop entrepreneurial skills and grow their ability to secure employment at a post high school age.

TORRESLARGO The city of Largos became the first fire district to officially reject the countys proposed budget cuts for EMS funding April 15. During their meeting, Largo commissioners unanimously passed a resolution to initiate governmental conflict resolution procedures with Pinellas County government. The city cannot afford to lose what Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis has estimated to be as high as $9 million in funding over the next 10 years if they accepted the countys contract as written. Theres a lot of money at stake for the city, City Attorney Alan Zimmet said. We have a statutory right thats being compromised. Thats a very important issue. City staff has tried to negotiate for more EMS funding, and the commissioners, after sending a letter to the county stating their position, invited Bruce Moeller, the countys executive director of public safety services, to explain the proposed cuts April 1. But the county has not budged from its insistence on the system-wide, costs-saving proposal, called CARES 2. As a result of passing the resolution, the city has sent a letter to the county April 16, copying it to all of the fire districts affected by the proposed changes. The county has 10 days to respond. The city has suggested scheduling the mandated conflict assessment meeting for Thursday, May 8 at Largo City Hall. Largo is the first to pass the necessary resolution to enter in conflict resolution procedure, which could end in the city suing the county if a compromised cant be reached between staff or in a joint public meeting between elected officials.Photos by JORDAN OSTERSPC forum tackles transit referendumeTownHall offers citizens answers on budget By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE Pinellas County citizens tweeted, blogged, phoned and asked questions in person during the FY 2015 Budget eTownHall meeting April 9 in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College. Communications officials report that about 250 people logged on to the blog and another 50 attended the hour-long live event. More than 65,000 received phone calls and an untold number watched the event streamed live on the countys website, pinellascounty.org, and on PCCTV. Mark Wilson, news anchor at Fox 13, moderated. County Administrator Bob LaSala answered questions from the public, as did all the commissioners, except Charlie Justice, who was sick. Wilson began the evening talking about results from a recent citizens survey that showed traffic and transit among top concerns. Several eTownHall participants asked transit-related questions. One wanted to know if transit was already part of the Pinellas for Pinellas program. Welch explained that Penny for Pinellas was a separate voter-approved tax that pays for capital improvement projects. Currently, PSTA receives its funding from ad valorem (property taxes). A referendum in November will allow voters to decide to change the method of funding to a Affordable senior housing at Pinellas Heights nears completion By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Pinellas Heights, a new 153-unit complex built for low-income seniors, is nearing completion. The Pinellas County Housing Authority is waiting for the final inspections to be completed to obtain the certificate of occupancy for the building, hopefully this week, said its executive director Debra Johnson. The complex was built at 11411 Ulmerton Road in Largo, next door to the headquarters of the nonprofit. Providing housing that seniors can truly afford is something to be proud of, Johnson said. As the population in Pinellas County is aging, there is a growing need for stable housing for seniors on fixed incomes. Seniors have a special place in my heart, Johnson said. We hear stories all the time about senior citizens making choices between paying bills and buying medicine or food. The complex is 100 percent leased 21 of the units to low-income seniors, earning below 60 percent of the countys median income and 132 to very-low-income seniors, those earning below 50 percent of the median income. Residents will pay 30 percent of their income, whatever that is. There was not a residency requirement, but these residents are local, Johnson said. The residents havent seen inside the complex yet, but theyve seen pictures at briefings to teach them about the leasing requirements prior to signing. Theyre all so excited, Johnson said. You can just hear the excitement when they leave. Most of the apartments are one-Photo by DEBRA JOHNSONSenior residents will soon be moving into Pinellas Heights, the new 153-unit affordable housing complex built by Pinellas County Housing Authority, next to their main offices in Largo. See TRANSIT, page 15A See BUDGET, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE On Nov. 4, registered voters throughout Pinellas will go to the polls to decide on a change in funding for local transportation. Supporters say the additional funding from a 1 percent sales tax compared to the amount available through ad valorem taxes is necessary to improve transportation to provide sustainable economic growth into the future. Opponents say the current funding method would be sufficient with better use of the money. On April 3, the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, based on the Seminole campus, hosted a two-hour public forum Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? Representatives from both sides were invited. SPC Seminole Provost James Olliver moderated the event inside the colleges Digitorium. Don Ewing, cochair of Yes for Greenlight, provided information in support of the Greenlight Pinellas initiative. Barbara Haselden, campaign manager and spokesperson for No Tax for Tracks, presented information for the opposition. SPC plans to use the forum process to cover all the referendums on the November ballot to provide the public an objective and nonpartisan view, Olliver said. A test of the forums ability to help the public make up its mind was used for the first time ever that Thursday night when instant polling via cellphone texting was introduced to the audience. This is probably the first time youve been in an auditorium and you have been told to keep the cell phone on, said David Klement, executive director of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. Klement said the instant poll, used as a straw poll, should provide an indication of what participants think. Before the presentations, 24 people indicated support for Greenlight Pinellas, 11 were against and five were undecided. After, 30 people were in favor, 21 against and only two undecided.In support of GreenlightEach speaker was given 15 minutes to make his or See HOUSING, page 4A See EMS, page 4AFAITH & FAMILYEaster servicesFind a listing of some holiday services scheduled during the week of Easter at places of worship throughout Pinellas County. ...

Due to an increase in reclaimed water availability, the Largo City Commission approved a pilot test program on April 1 to allow the three-day-per-week watering schedule for one year. At the end of the pilot year, reclaimed water availability will be reassessed to determine if the three-day schedule will continue. Allowable watering days are determined by address. Addresses ending in even numbers now can water Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Addresses ending in odd numbers can now water Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Using reclaimed water for irrigation purposes conserves the potable water of Floridas aquifer and reduces the amount of nitrogen that is discharged to Tampa Bay.

4A Largo Leader, April 17, 20141 percent sales tax devoted entirely to transit needs. This is a vitally important initiative in our county, something weve talked about since the 1970s, said Commissioner Janet Long. Long said without transit improvements, the economy would become stagnant. Its 2014. All major metro areas have a way for people to get from the airport to the beach with a transportation option, she said. We dont have it. Commissioner Chair Karen Seel explained that no money is currently available to fund a light rail system, but if the Greenlight Pinellas tax initiative were approved, it would be something coming in the future. Greenlight Pinellas is a transportation plan to move transit forward in Pinellas, said Commissioner Ken Welch. The first part of the plan improves bus services more flex routes and trolley services, evening services and more. The second part is light rail, which will come after. He answered a question as to why the rail couldnt be done by a private company by saying that a public-private partnership could be possible. Commissioner Susan Latvala told a caller that no county government money is spent to fund Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. She said PSTA had a separate budget and revenue stream. County tax money is not spent on PSTA and PSTA money is not spent on county government services. She pointed out that four commissioners sat of the PSTA board and helped oversee how the authoritys money was spent. Seel said the county was working on an interlocal agreement with PSTA that would ensure sales tax revenue would be spent as outlined in the Greenlight plan, should voters approve the 1 percent tax. The sales tax money collected would be passed through the county to PSTA.Budget questionsLaSala answered questions about the FY 2015 budget. He said although the budget was balanced, it would take great care to keep it that way. He explained that costs are continuing to rise faster than revenues. Were looking for ways to be more efficient, he said. One example is construction of a new chiller plant that should be finished in 2015. LaSala said it would help save on air conditioning costs. He recently presented an update to the 10-year budget forecast that showed challenges ahead for the future. Strategic planning is one of the things Im most proud of, said Commissioner Norm Roche, adding that it allowed more flexibility to adjust the budget year to year. He also commented on the survey. The survey is important, he said. It lets us know how were doing. Ninety percent say were meeting or exceeding service levels. Commissioner John Morroni agreed that the survey was important, but said the best feedback came from being out in the community. He pointed out that the survey involved only 800 people, while he attended a recent FAST (Faith and Action in Strength Together) with about 3,000 people in attendance. People are not afraid to tell you what they think, he said. A blogger asked if eliminating the Save Our Homes property tax exemption would give the county enough money to pay for services. Long explained that Save Our Homes was a state law, put into place after voters approved a constitutional amendment. She said voters would have to approve another amendment rescinding Save Our Homes, which she said was unlikely. Another participant asked about the importance of the property appraiser on the budget process. The property appraiser develops objective evaluative data based on tax values, LaSala said. The values are used to develop budget strategies. He said early estimates showed a 3 percent growth in property tax values and could come in higher, as much as 4 or 5 percent. Property values are an important part of our revenue base, he said. A blogger asked if the $5 fee to park in county parks with beach access was working to provide more money. Yes, said Latvala. It has kept us from having to cut staff and be able to do maintenance and landscaping. She said there were no plans to increase the fee. Roche said some people liked that less mowing was being done in the parks, allowing areas to become naturalized again. Another caller asked about funding for Emergency Medical Services and wanted to know if the commission was considering consolidation. Welch explained that due to the state charter governing EMS, the commission did not have the authority to consolidate. Consolidation, in my opinion, needs to happen, he said. We dont need 19 different districts. Meanwhile, county staff is working of saving money through enhancements to the 911 system and other measures, he said. Its important for consumers to recognize that we have the very best fire and EMS in the U.S., Long said. But it is also the most expensive. We need to find other ways to do it. But we have to be sensitive to the publics safety and wellbeing. She said change was difficult due to the political differences of those involved. So many people are resisting change, she said, adding that she had been married to a firefighter, retired now, for 37 years, so she understood the issue. Ive been a strong proponent of consolidation for years, Roche said, adding any change in the EMS system should be done with great care. He said there had been a lot of talk about regional consolidation and collaboration in recent years. We need to make sensible consolidation within our own borders. Welch answered the question about possible decrease in EMS millage, saying it could not go down as long as the cost to provide service continued to increase. On the question about abandoned houses in disrepair around the county, LaSala said the commission had approved adding three positions for code enforcement for this year. But, were mostly complaint driven, he said. And it takes time to make changes, as after notice is served about a problem, people have to be given a chance to resolve the issue. Morroni said the county was inadequate in its code enforcement and talked about an increase in the number of complaints.AccomplishmentsA caller asked the panel about the countys accomplishments. Seel talked about the countys growth and jobs. We had the best year ever in tourism bringing in over $31 million in bed tax revenue, she said. Were among the top counties in the state for tourism. She said the county was bringing in more high paying jobs and had retained more than 1,000 jobs last year. Morroni added that tourists had spent $5.5 billion in Pinellas last year. More than 1 million passengers used the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. Were doing gangbusters right now, he said. Long said with more carriers and Allegiant Air are adding routes, even more people would be coming to the county for business and to visit. They are paying a large percentage of Penny for Pinellas that we dont have to pay, she said.Business growthRoche answered a question about the importance of business growth. Thats one of the main challenges right now, he said. He said the average household income in the county was between $40,000 and $45,000, which causes concerns about the financial stress level on the population. He said most couldnt afford more taxes or fees. But Pinellas is a built-out county, meaning there isnt room to bring in large companies. He said officials needed to revision its business community for the future. Weve got to think different within the space we have, he said. Long said improved transportation options would help create new jobs and business growth along future rail corridors. Seel also fielded a question about construction on U.S. 19 and the hardship it was causing for businesses. She said that thanks to federal money and support from the Florida Department of Transportation, U.S. 19 projects had been fast tracked, meaning they can be completed 25 years ahead of schedule. She said extra money was made available to offer contractors incentives to finish the work sooner. She added that the Gulf-to-Bay span should be opening soon, which will give people an idea of what things will be like when ongoing construction is completed.Other questionsAnother caller asked about volunteer opportunities within county government. LaSala said volunteers were very important, providing 150,000 hours of service, equivalent to $5 million in service in a variety of capacities. They are doing work we wouldnt be able to do otherwise, he said. Seel answered the question about the future of the Waste to Energy plant. She said the contract with Duke Energy continues until 2024. Duke must buy the electricity we produce by burning trash, she said. She said the plant burned 1.5 tons of trash last year. Morroni added that Pinellas had recycled 1 million tons. Seel said due to the Waste to Energy plant, the county had not raised its tipping fee at the dump since 1985. LaSala added that tipping fees provide revenue for a renewal fund that paid for repairs, replacement and maintenance at the plant. Several questions came in about schools. Latvala explained that county government had nothing to do with schools. They elect their own board and have their own taxes, she said. Long, who sits on the Homeless Leadership Council, answered the question about what is being done about homelessness in Pinellas. She said many agencies were working together to assist, especially the fastest growing population of homeless families with children. Were trying to find a solution to get people into a program that can help them rise out of poverty so they can care for themselves, she said. She said some homelessness is tied to mental health issues as well as alcohol and drug abuse. She said many veterans were homeless, which is being addressed by the Veterans Administration and VA hospitals. Theyre doing their best to provide for them, she said. The final question asked if the county would be willing to pay if the Tampa Bay Rays said they wanted a new stadium in the Gateway area. Roche said the days of the taxpayer building stadiums was over. He said he didnt see Pinellas County citizens with an average household income of $43,000 paying for a new stadium. Latvala pointed out that the stadium would be paid for with bed tax money, which is mostly paid by tourists. If the opportunity comes up, there will be a public discussion and we will make the best decision, she said.Largo girls wish is granted as she heads to San Diego ZooCLEARWATER Molly, 8, of Largo lives with malignant neoplasm of the eye but recently embarked on a journey from Clearwater Marine Aquarium to San Diego Zoo courtesy of MakeA-Wish and the United Health Foundation. According to Mollys wish granters, she chose a San Diego Zoo wish because of her love for animals, specifically Australian animals koala bears and kangaroos. Mollys one specific request is to attend the Roar N Snore at the San Diego Zoo, which is an overnight camping experience inside the park with the animals. Finally, she would like to spend a day at the beach with her family surfing. Molly is traveling with her parents Ashley and Sean. Employees from UnitedHealthcare hosted a send-off party for Molly April 13 at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where she was able to meet Winter the dolphin. We are very happy to play a role in making Mollys wish trip come true, said David Lewis, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Florida. Make-A-Wish truly makes a positive impact in our communities and brings joy to so many children courageously facing lifethreatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Since 2007, UnitedHealth Group has funded more than 2,136 wishes through a $7.5 million alliance with Make-A-Wish.Molly, center, is headed to San Diego Zoo as a Make-A-Wish recipient. She is pictured at her send-off party hosted by UnitedHealthcare April 13 at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. With her are, from left, Andrew Summons of UnitedHealthcare, her parents Ashley and Sean, Dennis Leon of UnitedHealthcare, Make-A-Wish volunteer wish coordinator Krista Parrish and UnitedHealthcare employees Todd Komenda, Sharon Bey and Arlene Checkman. Photos courtesy of UNITEDHEALTHCAREAt left, Molly, 8, of Largo meets Winter the dolphin with the help of trainer John Widdick at her Make-AWish send off party at Clearwater Marine Aquarium April 13. Above, Molly with Dennis Leon, vice president of UnitedHealthcare of Florida. BUDGET, from page 1A EMS, from page 1AIm totally in favor of this, but I totally despise government suing government, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said, voicing a fear that the cost of litigation might exceed the funding the city is fighting for. Zimmet assured him otherwise. Theres no case Ive ever handled where the legal fees are $9 million, he said. Mayor Pat Gerard added, I dont think were going to be in this by ourselves. Well be sharing those legal costs. Several of the other fire districts are meeting with their elected officials over the next two weeks to determine what course of action they will take against the county, Willis said. We should know in the next week or so what municipalities will be joining us, if any, she said. In the CARES 2 proposal, two paramedic positions assigned to rescue units at Largos fire stations 41 and 42 would stay in service only 14 hours a day, going out of service during the systems least busy time period between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. The reduction in funded hours would cost Largo $175,000 per year for the next three years. Further, the proposed contract would freeze funding for three years, which would mean the city would lose out on an estimated $2 million in inflation revenue. Commissioner Woody Brown pointed out that when he asked Moeller about the funding freeze, he was told that Pinellas Countys per capita cost for EMS service was way out of line with similar systems across the country. But Brown said he didnt find that to be the case when he did his own research. I spent hours trying to find numbers, and theyre not that easy to find, but all of them are right about where we are. Some of them are much higher, he explained. Its just frustrating that the argument thats given to me to put more burden to our taxpayers it didnt seem like there was any truth to it. Commissioner Michael Smith asked if there had been a response from the county since the citys April 1 meeting, especially after county Administer Bob Lasala had been fired April 15. There has been none, staff said, except when the city tried to fill out a three-page electronic document, listing its requested funding, City Manager Mac Craig said. As soon as you put your numbers in, the software in the system automatically turns into the numbers that they want, Craig explained. I think thats a statement, Gerard said. Holmes said he hoped the county would see the light of day on the issue. They have a new administrator coming in who make look at this in a little different way. That is my sincere hope, he said. During the April 15 meeting, Largo commissioners also: Accepted the Charter Review Committees proposed changes to the Largo charter, along with striking language that requires the mayor to appoint all committee members. The changes will be drafted into a resolution, to be added to the ballot in November elections. Approved a comprehensive study of the I-9 sanitary sewer system within the Kent Place subdivision, which will cost $194,184 and determine possible solutions for problems reported by the residents. The study would be conducted during the rainy season, May through August, and after results are analyzed, provide improvement alternatives and associated costs to the commission by November 2014. Approved the first reading of pension plan changes, as negotiated with fire and police unions over the last three years. Accepted the proposed capital improvements program, discussed in full April 8.

TORRESAbove, pictured on the balcony of a brand new apartment are, from left, Debra Johnson, executive director of the Pinellas County Housing Authority; Erin Ellis, project manager and Omar Arce, construction services manager. At right, Pinellas Heights apartments facing the back of the complex feature balconies looking out over a pond. HOUSING, from page 1A bedroom units; only 16 have two bedrooms. All units are handicap accessible, offering walk-in showers and wider doorways. All four floors of the complex have laundry facilities. Plus, theres a fitness center, a library and computer center, a crafts and activities room and a verandah stocked with rocking chairs overlooking a pond with a fountain. The Pinellas County Housing Authority, or PCHA, owns the property for Pinellas Heights, formally the Green House Shops. The strip center had fallen into disrepair. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in renovations, the nonprofit decided to do what it does best: provide housing for those in need, Johnson explained. Thats what were here for. When we can do that, were proud, she said. The housing authority had contracts for the project signed by the beginning of 2012. They broke ground on the project in November of that year. Residents will start moving in shifts over the next few weeks, as soon as the certificate of occupancy is obtained. Aside from those ready to move in, 50 people are on the waiting list for the new housing, said Stephanie Baker, president of Norstar Accolade Property Management, the company helping PCHA manage Pinellas Heights. However, she doesnt expect much of a turnover. The apartments are so nicely laid out, I think theyll stay. Theyre just gorgeous, Baker said. PCHA has several other housing projects in the works. The Landing at Cross Bayou, for example, is a gut rehabilitation of an older, 184-unit apartment community in Lealman. Its going to be something where Pinellas County can be very proud. This property is going to be good for the next 30 years, Johnson said. Also, a planning group is brainstorming ideas for the redevelopment of Rainbow Village, about 30 acres and 200 units of public housing, located west of Pinellas Heights on 134th Avenue in Largo. Along with the construction projects themselves, the nonprofit offers a variety of programs, providing public housing as well as affordable housing options for veterans, seniors, disabled residents and those who need assisted living. In the last few years, the organization has offered a family self-sufficiency program, helping participants plan and achieve goals to educate themselves, earn more income, save money and eventually live free of welfare assistance. Another program allows families to use their Section 8 housing voucher toward a mortgage instead of rent. Johnson has been executive director for the Pinellas County Housing Authority since July 2009. Its a job she wouldnt trade it for anything in the world, she said. This is just an opportunity to help more people, as well as help the county. The county itself from south to north needs more housing that people can truly afford, she said. The Pinellas Heights grand opening will be celebrated Friday, May 9, 10 a.m., on the property, 11411 Ulmerton Road.

FDOT reports drop in Pinellas pedestrian fatalitiesAccording to Peter Hsu of the Florida Department of Transportation, the roads were a little safer in Pinellas County last year, particularly for pedestrians and motorcyclists. Speaking recently to the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, Hsu said there was a 33 percent reduction in pedestrian fatalities and a 39 percent reduction in motorcycle fatalities in Pinellas County from 2012 to 2013. These reductions contributed to an overall 3 percent reduction in statewide traffic fatalities in the same year. He credited the reductions to a district-wide program focusing on engineering, enforcement and education strategies. They include the installation of audible vibratory pavement markings, rapid flashing beacons at midblock crosswalks, pedestrian countdown signals, roadway safety audits and follow-up improvements, an education outreach safety campaign and grant funds allocated to assist local police in the enforcement of pedestrian laws. Hsu said 49 percent of last years reduction in Tampa Bay traffic fatalities (39) occurred in Pinellas County (19). He said Pinellas County also had a 39 percent drop in motorcycle fatalities in 2013, going from 23 in 2012 to 14 a year later. Pedestrian fatalities dropped 33 percent, from 30 to 20. Bicycle fatalities dropped minimally in the Tampa Bay area from 10 to 9. Across Florida, traffic fatalities dropped 2.9 percent from 2,427 to 2,357. One of the states worst years in that category was 2006 when 3,365 deaths occurred.Congressman Jolly to host open houseThursday, April 17, 3 to 6 p.m., at the Seminole District Office located on the campus of St. Petersburg College, 9210 113th St. Refreshments will be served.

Speaking at an April 8 work session, LaSala said the telephone survey was very, very accurate and provided a very precise bit of feedback from our citizens. Sarah Lindemuth of HCP, a national research, strategy and marketing firm headquartered in Tampa, agreed, saying the 2014 results showed the highest percent of favorable responses on quality of life questions since the county implemented the use of an annual survey in 2011. The random digit dial telephonic survey, conducted Feb. 1-17, involved 800 residents 200 from north county, 200 from mid county, 200 from south county and 200 residents who live on the beaches. The goal: to measure citizen expectations and perceptions regarding key drivers for citizen qualify of life, to determine strengths and opportunities for improvements, according to Lindemuths PowerPoint presentation. She said the survey included calls to the countys large base of long-term residents as well as newer residents, who tend to be younger, have children and higher levels of income. She said the strongest ambassadors for the county are age 65 and older, those new within the past 10 years, those with higher education and incomes above $50,000. The number who said they would recommend Pinellas as a place to retire, live, raise children and/or work increased some significantly as compared to 2012 and 2013 survey answers. Nine out of 10 said they would recommend the county as a place to live and retire, and almost nine in 10 would recommend Pinellas as a place to work and raise children. Perceptions of current quality of life, compared to five years ago, significantly improved versus 2013, continuing an upward trend, she said. More respondents indicated optimism for future quality of life. She also reported that citizens trust and confidence in county government significantly exceeds trust and confidence levels reported in a National Gallup Poll. Few of those surveyed said they had plans to move from Pinellas within the next year. Most who participated in the survey said the county is better aligning with expectation on a majority of community characteristics. Results were not as favorable as to meeting expectations for transportation and economic factors, she said. The biggest gap was for traffic flow. Pinellas has a strong base of tenured residents nearly four in five, or 79.9 percent, have lived in the county for more than 10 years. The survey showed an 11 percent increase in new residents, those who have lived in Pinellas for four years or less. Lindemuth pointed out a few statistical differences between responses from residents of unincorporated areas versus those who live in incorporated (municipalities) area in terms of whether expectations are being met. The biggest differences were reported in water drainage management and having a point of contact for concerns. In unincorporated areas, 82.5 percent said the county was meeting expectations for water drainage management as compared to 76.2 percent in incorporated areas. As to a point of contact for concerns, 78.7 percent of those surveyed in unincorporated areas said expectations were being met for having a point of contact for concerns, 3.8 percent said expectations were exceeded and 14.8 said expectations were not being met. In municipal areas, 67.4 percent said the availability of a point of contact met expectations, 9.9 percent said it exceeded expectations and 6.5 percent said expectations were not being met. Responses exude more optimism than in prior studies for quality of life, Lindemuth said, when talking about the trends shown by the survey. Citizens continue to challenge the county on the topics of economy, transportation and the natural environment. Other trends of note reveal job-related challenges, she said. Reaction to select transportation topics suggests congestion remains a detractor to overall resident experience, she added LaSala said he was pleased with the results. Im proud of what this tells us, he said. But it doesnt mean there is not room for improvement.

12A Viewpoints Leader, April 17, 2014Ive been reading about the recent troubles college fraternities have gotten into because of two things: alcohol and hazing. Just when were convinced that all the customs of the world have changed, and that the old days and old ways are gone forever, we hear about dear old Alpha Gamma Ray or some other fraternity getting sued or thrown off campus because of killing one of its pledges by forcing him to drink a gallon of vodka within half an hour. As in days of yore, everyone throws up their hands and exclaims, How awful! How could this happen in our enlightened society? So lets think about that. For openers, start with the booze. Historians tell us that alcohol was invented about three seconds after the Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago. (Im exaggerating, of course, but I often do this to make a point.) My point is that alcohol has been around ever since humans discovered (by accident or intent) how to make it. Since that time, alcohol has been part of life. One theory says man was a hunter/gatherer until he began growing crops that could be fermented or distilled. He soon learned that by tossing in some sugar and other ingredients and stirring the mix for a few weeks, he could produce a marvelous beverage. When swallowed, it gave him a whole new outlook on life. He shouted, No more hunting deer and groundhogs for me Im gonna be a farmer! Humans male and female, young and old have been enjoying and/or dying from alcohol ever since. Despite hundreds of years of medical research, no one has found exactly why most people drink in moderation (or not at all) while others become an alcoholic gradually or from their first sip. Alcoholism treatment has emerged from the dark ages, but the success rates of the various methods are open to question. Thats because alcoholism research is often a foggy field filled with unreliable subjects (active drunks) and the inability of the various experts to agree on just what alcoholism is. Its a mistake to think that alcohol and fraternities are automatically linked. Theyre not. Throughout our country we find fraternities (and their colleges) that have few regulations on alcohol use, while others have successfully clamped down on student drinking. But in America banning booze is a tricky endeavor (witness our nations 13-year disaster with the Prohibition Amendment). It has the same predictable success rate as banning sex or Big Macs. My own college prohibited alcohol for one year in the 1950s; the result was a farce. All in all, its unrealistic to expect college students (whether or not theyre members of a fraternity) or any other segment of the population to refrain from drinking. Even so, society is justified in trying to ban drunken driving, the serving of alcohol to minors and other abuses. Hazing is another ancient tradition that grabs headlines from time to time, at least when it results in injury or death to its victims, who are usually initiates or recruits. The experts arent sure where hazing started, but variations of it are found in organizations around the globe. To fully examine hazing is to risk losing ones belief in human decency. What in our souls can justify imposing rituals ranging from humiliation to sheer torture on our brothers and sisters to punish their unwitting crime of being outsiders who merely wish to come inside? I underwent mild (and non-alcoholic) hazing twice in my checkered history. The first occasion was when, as crew members on our ship reaching the equator en route to Korea in 1951, my fellow polliwogs (who had not previously crossed the equator) and I were subjected to disgusting but good-natured abuse by the shellbacks (sailors who had earlier experienced the tradition.) Other hazing came when I chose a fraternity. One night my pledge class was seated at tables on which the actives (upper-classmen) had placed small dishes of canned fruit topped with whipped cream, which was actually shaving cream. The actives took joy at watching the pledges gag as they swallowed the first mouthful. Otis, a senior bullyboy with whom I shared a mutual loathing, stood waiting for me to retch. But I fooled him. I calmly swallowed most of the fruit and shaving cream, to the amazement of the actives and the rage of my enemy Otis. It was one of the most satisfying incidents of my life. To my mind the truth about extreme hazing, wherever it occurs, is this: it is bullying, pure and simple. Beneath its surface almost always lurks sadism. But Im neither an expert nor a sadist. So forgive me if Im wrong.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.C. Fred Jones was always good for a great quote. I remember talking to the former Auburndale state legislator in the 1980s about the possibility of the Legislatures session having to be extended for a month. The shorter, the better, he said, because anytime the Legislature meets, your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are in danger. Still holds true. And when the Legislature meets, common sense goes on sabbatical. For instance, why are some of our state leaders hell bent on making voting more difficult and killing people easier? A bill sponsored by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, would allow people to conceal firearms without a permit during emergencies, including riots. Who came up with this idea? Yosemite Sam? We also checked in on Gov. Rick Scott to see what hes been up to lately. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? Scott said. Yes, sir. Many times. You have to be careful while youre walking in Tallahassee; its easy to trip on the puppet strings extending from special interests to lawmakers. Wouldnt be surprised if Senate President Don Gaetz will soon do a commercial for Budweiser based on his conversation recently with the Associated Press. The craft beer industry is trying to get the Legislature to approve the use of half-gallon growlers, but Gaetz told AP that he supports his friend, an Anheuser-Busch distributor in his district. We checked in with Gaetz. Mr. Gaetz, why are you opposed to loosening up regulations for the craft beer industry? Doesnt that go against the grain, so to speak, of the Republicans distaste for overregulation? This is the famous Budweiser beer, Gaetz said. We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood aging produces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price. Time shall tell whether Gaetz will fall off his high Clydesdale while tripping over puppet strings. Surprised that the craft beer bars havent put his face on their dartboards. They probably dont realize how easy it is to find his face. It can be downloaded at www.flsenate.gov/ Senators/s1. Oh-oh. Gov. Scott is calling again. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? he said. Yes, sir. Thank you. The governor these days has been busy announcing new major road construction projects such as building an elevated expressway linking Interstate 275 and U.S. 19 in our area and widening the last four-lane section of Interstate 95. I didnt bother to ask him if he has given any further thought to funding high-speed rail or similar mass transit projects. If he ever got on board mass transit, to quote C. Fred Jones, Ill eat my hat at high noon in front of the county courthouse. And the county courthouse may be the only place were going to be able to drop off election ballots if some lawmakers keep toying with voting laws. Meanwhile, Gaetz is on the line again. Hello, senator. This Buds for you, Tom. Sir? Click. At the time of this writing, yet to be determined is whether the cowboys in the Legislature will pistol whip their colleagues in line to support the shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later-in-a-riot legislation. Summarizing what Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in the Tampa Bay Times, its the definition of insanity. Thank you, sheriff. Youre the canary in the coal mine. I long to see the day when Florida legislators put the interests of their constituents ahead of special interests, Yosemite Sam, Budweiser or whatever. But Im an ironclad doubting Thomas.

Tom Germond Common sense lacking in capitalCross your fingers using crosswalksEditor: How many pedestrians need to be killed on Gulf Boulevard before we stop the illusion that a pedestrian is safer in a crosswalk? North Redington Beach completed a $3.2 million project which included: to enhance safety to the existing Gulf Boulevard crosswalks changes will improve pedestrian safety, February 2014. The following month three pedestrians were killed trying to cross Gulf Boulevard, March 2014. The Department of Transportation concluded a seven-year study May 1, 2010, and reached this conclusion: to 1 ratio a pedestrian is more likely to have an accident inside versus outside crosswalk. Midblock crosswalks are dangerous (Franklin County Traffic Safety Board) advises four lane roads with 10,000 traffic or more mid-block crosswalks should not be considered even if a pedestrian safety median separates opposing traffic lanes. The North Redington Beach Gulf Boulevard traffic count is 14,551+/(Pinellas County records) All being mid-block crosswalks. North Redington Beach has more crosswalks per linear feet on Gulf Boulevard in .9 mile of a 13.5-mile segment of BIG-C beach towns stretching from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater. Beach Beacon article April 2 titled BIG-C focuses on pedestrian safety quoted Indiana man who died would probably be still alive had he checked for cars. I believe Jed Gettinger Indiana Man would probably be alive had there not been a mid-block crosswalk on Gulf Boulevard with a traffic count of 14,551 +/giving him a false sense of security he was safe in a crosswalk. Ive been crossing Gulf Boulevard for over a half century, never having one problem crossing the way my mother taught me: Look Both Ways. I cross at places where it seems safest. I trust myself to determine when and where its safe to cross: not a sign, flashing light, paint on the pavement or waving a yellow flag. I believe officials make the best decisions with the references they have at the time. Im here to offer some new references that will hopefully enable safer decisions for our community. Disagree? Then cross Gulf Boulevard using a crosswalk. My concern is you will not be around to offer rebuttal. My heart goes out to the families of Darrel Johnson, Patrick McClean and Jed Gettinger who lost their lives attempting to cross Gulf Boulevard safely. John Messmore North Redington BeachColumn on Affordable Care not correctEditor: We wife and I have lived in Harbor Bluffs/Belleair for 35 years. We have enjoyed the Belleair Bee for many years. I cannot remember the Bee having a nationally syndicated opinion writer in the past. I respectfully suggest that Debra Saunders does not enhance your publication one iota. Her recent piece on the Affordable Care Act is just plain not correct. I strongly suggest you reconsider the need for a national columnist. Alan E. James Jr. Belleair A few months ago I surrendered my Verizon 4G smart phone. It was an ostentatious instrument, capable of doing everything from reporting the exact time in Baruun-Urt, Mongolia, to broadcasting country music from Toad Suck, Ark. For two years my trusty Android robbed me of hours upon hours of time as I searched the Web for tasty treats like akutag, a frosty Arctic dessert made from seal or moose fat, to goodies from the Weird Food Club of New York City that includes scorpion with chili peppers, broiled snake, goose intestines, and brain soup. Ummm. Yummy! Then there was the probing of news sites from around the world, or listening to live stream radio stations from distant places like Fiji, Iceland, Fairbanks, and Tampa. (OK, so Tampa is not that far away.) I thrilled to the days of yesteryear on an old time radio app as the Lone Ranger galloped across the plains with his faithful companion, Tonto, or the creaking door as the Shadow emitted his bizarre guffaw. I had about 100 apps on my Android phone that included a pedometer, camera, heart rate monitor, maps, instructions, communications, games and even a nifty smell-oapp that allegedly spewed the fragrance of morning coffee, searing burgers on a grille, and even sensuous come-up-to-my-placesometime perfume. I never did get that one to work. Although people warned that smart phones are as addictive as recreational drugs at a meth clinic, I signed the contract that catapulted me into cyber space. Vanished were the days of watching the human entertainment at Walmart. I could watch the People of Walmart website instead. At night I remained secluded in a rear room punching the minuscule keyboard to chat with computer-generated friends I never met. I played Scrabble with a woman in Japan who created unrecognizable words like dapifer and sepulchral to beat me into submission. I exchanged messages with a farmer in a small North Dakota town who bragged about being able to start the family pick-up truck in 56 degrees below zero weather. AT&T developed the first wireless network in 1946, but the gizmo that combined a telephone and computer didnt come along until 1973. By the late 1990s the Palm Pilot and the Windows Pocket PC were gaining popularity. Early smart phones had limited functionality and, with the exception of Japan, were relatively unknown in most of the world. Then along came the BlackBerry, dubbed the CrackBerry, due to its addictive appeal. It reigned supreme until Apple and Android versions were introduced a few years later. Apple in 2007 ushered in the first iPhone that offered a touch screen to replace the diminutive stylus keyboard. The Googlebacked Android arrived two years later. The rest is history. The future holds many wonders such as folding phones sans batteries that will be powered by radio, television and cellular signals. Google Glass ... eyeglasses with built-in mini computers ... is being developed along with surgically implanted micro projectors that will beam touch screens on hard surfaces such as desks, tables and even public restroom walls. The technology will be available to the public within five years. The smart phones, numbered at approximately 500 million worldwide, also create environmental, social and other challenges. They contain toxic chemicals like arsenic and mercury. They are the prominent target of thieves and other villains. They cause innumerable motor vehicle accidents thanks to inattentive drivers who simply must check messages and websites while piloting 2 tons of steel down a highway at 65 mph. Then there are the security issues, too plentiful to mention here. People spend more time on their smart phones than interacting with friends, neighbors and relatives. I once saw a mother and young daughter at a tire store communicating with each other via smart phone ... while seated in the same waiting room! What it boils down to is that people dont talk anymore; they text or email or leave messages on Facebook and other social media sites. Kids fail to foster human relationships, and are clueless about the world beyond modern electronics. I enjoy not being held hostage by my Android smart phone. It now rests soundless in a desk drawer; its screen forever extinguished while I blissfully converse with people face to face and, for better or worse, remains somewhat ignorant of the frivolities in cyberspace. I now have an old-fashioned flip phone if someone needs to talk with me. And if I burrow around the attic long enough I can probably exhume my prehistoric Ma Bell black dial phone with a real ringer that graced my desk a million years ago. And who knows ... maybe I can invent a holster of sorts to carry it on my hip. I could actually launch a whole new fad!Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor.

Ewing went first. He took the audience back to the mid-1960s when Disney began its plans to build the City of Tomorrow in Orlando. The goal was to create a pedestrian-friendly and car-free environment. He said while Greenlight Pinellas wasnt intended to turn the county into a Disneyworld, the plan did include the idea of providing walkable communities with improved transit and reduced use of vehicles. Projections show, without change, Pinellas future is one of more congestion on local roads and longer commute times. Ewing said continual widening of existing roads is getting more difficult due to lack of space and safety concerns. That cant be our only approach, he said. He advocates Greenlight Pinellas with plans for improved bus service and a future light rail system, running for Clearwater to St. Petersburg with the potential for a connection to Tampa and points beyond to provide regional connectivity. Supporters of Greenlight say it is more than just light rail. They say that better transportation system will create jobs and encourage economic development, enhance quality of life, as well as support the environment. Adding nighttime hours to the bus schedule will allow workers on the late shift to use public transit to get home something they cant do now. Students taking classes at SPCs different campuses will find it easier to use the bus system with decreased wait times of 15 minutes at stops. Tourists will be able to get from the airport to the beach using public transportation. He encouraged the public to visit pinellasontrack.com for complete information. Its a real life look at what enhanced bus service and rail can do, he said. Ewing said the plan years in the making was well vetted and had been analyzed by two third party experts Ernst and Young, financial auditors, and HTNB, a national engineering and transportation consulting firm. He explained the different routes that make up a variety of proposed enhanced bus services, running throughout the county. Light rail doesnt appear for 10 years, he said; however, the route is already mapped out. The majority of rail lines are on public land, meaning fewer problems with right of way. Once the Greenlight Pinellas plan is complete, 80 percent of the population will live within 1/4 mile of a bus rapid transit station and 86 percent will work within 1/4 mile of a station, he said. Greenlight Pinellas plan relies on an increased level of funding that would come from a 1 percent sales tax as opposed to collection of ad valorem taxes. Ewing said for some, taxes would go down. For example, a taxpayer of an owner-occupied home with a median value of $161,600 would pay $81.52 less with a sales tax, per estimates from IRS studies. He pointed out that the sales tax would not be levied on groceries or medical items and would be limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase. He said a person could buy a car for $20,000 and not pay more than $50 in transit tax. He added that tourists were expected to pay about 1/3 of the tax money generated. He said if the tax were approved, an oversight committee of citizens would monitor how the money is spent, as would County Commissioners. He said Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority the receiver of the proposed transit tax money was fiscally responsible, receiving consistently clean audits of its finances. He urged the public to vote yes for Greenlight.Against GreenlightHaselden then presented the case against Greenlight. She pointed out that it cost a family of four about $100 a day to go to Disney. She said if they stayed at a hotel there, ate at the restaurants and paid other expenses, the cost would be $4,500 to $5,000 an amount not affordable for everyone. Disney was an entrepreneur and a private business, she said. She told the audience that public transportation was stagnant. She showed a chart that showed 50 percent of the U.S. used public transportation post World War II. Since then, the number has dropped to 2 percent. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 1.6 percent use public transportation in Pinellas. Her source was Heritage Foundation: Public Transit: A Bad Product at a Bad Price. She showed a photo of a new PSTA bus that she said cost $650,000. Currently there are 200 in the PSTA fleet, she said, with plans for more. She argued that PSTA doesnt pay for itself, and said about 75 percent of its operations were subsidized. About 22 percent of PSTAs $63 million operating budget comes from federal or state grants, another 22 percent from passenger fares and about 53 percent from ad valorem taxes. The capital budget includes another $28 million. Haselden said her numbers come from PSTA. She said it costs about $7 a ride with riders paying an average of 91 cents, meaning in total PSTA is subsidized by 87 percent. She showed a chart of the countys property values and pointed to the decrease after 2007 when the recession hit. She said the amount of money PSTA collected dropped from $38 million to $26 million due to the decline in property values. She said a check of past years budgets shows the agency spending money in 2002 and continuing to spend until 2007 when it began to slow down. Budget cuts followed including staff layoffs. Then, the agency raised its millage rate, and spending increased again, including hiring of staff, Haselden said. They outspend their income, she said. She talked about a statement made by PSTA CEO Brad Miller, who said if no new sustainable funding source is found, PSTA would have to cut 30 percent in 2016. PSTA is at a crossroads, she said. She talked about the negative aspects of light rail, including the difference between high-speed and light rail, which causes congestion at intersections. She is opposed to increasing the sales tax from 7 percent to 8 percent. PSTA currently receives $32 million from ad valorem taxes and would receive $148 million from a 1 percent sales tax, she said. She objects to Greenlight supporters calling it a tax swap. She said unless it was revenue neutral it was no swap. She said if an additional 1 percent sales tax was approved, Pinellas would have the highest in the state, which cannot be good for business. She said with more potential revenue, PSTA could increase its credit limit and debt to the taxpayer. She talked about false premises and claims by Greenlight that there would be more than 200,000 new people in Pinellas by 2040. Thats not true, she said. The population is not growing. She disputed claims of record ridership being touted almost every month by PSTA. She said the numbers are inflated by how they count rides. She gave an example of a single trip with multiple bus transfers. She said each time a passenger boards a bus, it is counted as a ride, so a single person taking the bus to the mall could be counted as six rides. The (ridership) numbers havent changed in eight years, she said. She talked about empty buses and buses running with only two to three people. She said PSTA paid $700,000 for a study that showed the top five routes were so busy they were almost dangerous and other routes not performing. She said the entire Greenlight Plan was just a promise. There is no guarantee in writing, she said. She said people dont want to give up roadway lanes to dedicated use by light rail or buses. She showed a chart of costs and fares for several metro areas using light rail, pointing out that none of them came close to breaking even. In Pinellas, theres just no need, she said. U.S. 19 is almost finished. I275 corridor is going to connect to U.S. 19. The roadway will have no stoplights, she said. Haselden believes public transportation should be bid out to the private sector if PSTA cant provide safe reliable service to 1.6 percent of our neighbors, for those who want a ride that doesnt take all day to get to their destination. She pointed out that PSTA would continue to receive grant money and fare money on top of the projected increase from the sales tax a considerable increase in overall funding.Questions and answersThe presenters also fielded questions from the audience. One led to a lengthy discussion on population density. The biggest problem is that we dont have the density needed (for rail), Haselden said. You go from a low density area to another low density area. She compared Pinellas Countys population to that of New York City, which has enough people to support enhanced systems. She also said light rail wasnt needed to stimulate the economy, she said it could be done using Bus Rapid Transit. Ewing disputed the statement that the proposed light rail route connects two low-density areas, stating that Pinellas County has the highest density of any county in the state. He said the rail line would travel between the countys two most dense areas, traveling through Pinellas Park and Largo on its way. Over time, this will force people to live around rail lines and in high rises increasing density narrowing our territory, Haselden said. Were used to a large territory. Another question led to a discussion on economic development. Ewing said the 16 rail stations would be located away from current developed areas onto land not currently developed, which would be good for the local economy. Haselden said the Federal Transit Administration described development around rail lines as redistributed growth, not new growth. She gave the example of the effect malls had on downtown areas in the recent past. This will drive people to shop near rail lines, she said. One man, who identified himself as a veteran, asked if the steel for the tracks, trains and other components would come from America or overseas. Brad Miller, PSTA CEO, said federal law requires it all to be made in America. Ewing answered anothers concern by saying Greenlight Pinellas would provide options and alternatives. Some would use (public transportation) every day and some on occasion, he said. He gave an example of a trip to the airport, thus saving money on parking. Its about getting people off the roads to not have to expand the roads, he said. We can only expand the roads a certain amount. Were running out of land. We need to educate people that they can do something else. Haselden said it was more important to work on the roads. Ninety-eight percent of us use the roads, she said.Dolphin spring is not yet sprung yetThe dolphin spring remains un-sprung. Three recent events at sea whisper of its coming. But it is late. The dolphin spring is marked by a return of dolphins to the Intracoastal Waterway estuary from their winter quarters. Their winter quarters are presumably the Gulf of Mexico. But no one really knows where our local dolphins go during the cold months, which, when you think about it, is strange. The first maritime sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung is the flirting of the water temperature. Why is the water temperature in our local backwaters in the 60s for most of the cold months and in the 80s for most of the warm months, but is so briefly at the transition temperatures of the 70s in between? Water temperatures have been flirting with the telltale 70-degree mark in the last couple of weeks, coyly approaching it and then retreating from it bashfully. I should ask my database if dolphins begin returning in earnest once the water temperatures hit the 70s or it only seems that way. A second sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the small squad of teens we encountered the other day. Their message was double-speak. We found them as a quartet of three males (VC, Oyster and PC) and one female (Babyface) that swelled into a quintet as they headed west and joined teen female AM. They were uncharacteristically quiet for teens. The part of their double-speak that said the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was PC. PC has been a sign of spring at sea for the last two years. PC is 9 years old now. Capt. John Heidemann and I watched him grow up. In fact, we were allowed to babysit him. His mom P dropped him off at the boat, went off to hunt hundreds of yards away, returned, picked him up and off they went! Obligingly, while she was gone, PC gave us precious footage of his game of Toss the Horsetail. PC left home and became independent of P at the unheard-of age of 16 months. Thus, we are doubly pleased to see him. It means he continues to prosper amid the many dangers of the sea. In the bottlenose bull way, he threads through those dangers to find what he likes. When he finds it, he stays where it is. When he does not, he continues his search of the seas. We did not see PC in 2010 or 2011, and only glimpsed him briefly in the spring 2012 when he swung through to check out our local waters. He returned four months later after Thanksgiving. He must have found something he liked because he stayed through July 4, 2013. He left again save for one appearance. Thus, we have not seen this strapping young bull for six months. But he not only returned. He returned to the company of VC and Oyster. They must be friends, for they are ones he has appeared with in the past. The other part of the teen double-speak was that teens are still here. As the adults return in the spring, teens vanish or become more circumspect. In particular, teen bulls contra-indicate the more mature (more beat-up) bulls. Once we see those pairs of big bruisers in the backwaters (Ouch and Fishlips, Grin and Twin Dip, Ekard and Spry, Midface and Lax, Brick and Nose, N and Riptab, among others), we are unlikely to seeing teen bulls like Oyster or VC until the fall. In keeping with his early maturity, PC is not intimidated by these bruisers as other teen bulls are. A third sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the milling mess of moms and kids that we found the week before. The milling mess was fun and frustrating to watch. There were at least a dozen dolphins. They were a nursery group that included six calves. With all those kids, there was lots of action! The three wiggliest were born last year in 2013. This spring, they are entering the stimulating phase of dolphin development called Babys First Spring; more on these bracing activities later in the season! The little wigglies included our second youngest calf from 2013, Qs mysterious calf Qody. Qody is pronounced Cody but alphabetizes with mom Q in the database. I hope Q stays in Johns Pass so I can watch her raise Qody the way I watched her raise Qball. (No new word on Qballs injuries, reported last week in Dolphin Watch.) The three wiggly dolphins were poked and prodded and rolled by three older calves until the seas bubbled. But they did not stay. They had proverbially poked their heads into Photo by ANN WEAVERTwig with a twig. Sticks little calf Twig mouths a horsetail toy as it waits for mom to return from a hunting trip. Its toy is visible in its mouth if you look closely.Johns Pass as if to see if they found whatever it is the dolphins come here to find. They did not find it, for they then returned to the mysterious locale from which they had come. This gives me another idea to check in the database. How often have dolphins appeared in early spring, not found what they were looking for and vanished until some later date? Is the pool still too cold? Oh yeah, one final clue that spring is almost un-sprung. Local bull Scrapefin ran into local bull DD2 the other day and vanished in short order. DD2 will not tolerate Scrapefin in his vicinity. Scrapefin knows it. Ahh, things seem to be nice and normal!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

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 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.

Here is Rydell Highs senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding Burger Palace Boys and their gumsnapping, hip-shaking Pink Ladies in bobby socks and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head greaser Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their Summer Nights as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as Greased Lightnin, We Go Together, There Are Worse Things I Could Do and Youre the One That I Want recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals place Grease among the worlds most popular musicals. This production will feature James Grenelle as director and choreographer.Clearwater A Bad Year for Tomatoes, by John Patrick, through May 4, at Early Bird Dinner Theatre, 13355 49th St. N., Clearwater. Evening performances are presented Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with seating at 4 p.m. Matinees are presented Thursdays and Saturdays, with seating at 11 a.m. Cost is $29.90 which includes dinner and show. This hilarious comedy deals with the very funny misfortunes of a famous television actress who seeks to get away from it all in a small New England town. Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marloe leases a house in New England to write her autobiography. Dealing with her nosy omnipresent neighbors turns out to be more difficult than she imagined so she invents a mad homicidal sister who is kept locked in an upstairs room. The ruse works well at first until the local handyman develops an affection for Sister Sadie and complications ensue.

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.Gulfport Gulfport Art Walk, Saturday, April 19, 6 to 10 p.m., on Beach Boulevard in Gulfport.

Of course, it isnt and, according to the Gregorian calendar, the first day of summer falls on June 21. But Hollywood doesnt pay much attention to such pesky details. As far as the film studios are concerned, the drive to fill theaters by hyping an endless parade of potential blockbusters marks the start of summer. That procession generally commences in early May although it seems to be arriving earlier and earlier each year. Last summers blockbuster lineup kicked off with Iron Man 3, which followed the previous summers box office champion, Marvels The Avengers. Iron Man 3 grossed $1.2 billion worldwide last year. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is Marvel Studios first big hit of the year, bringing in plenty of revenue since its release earlier this month. As of this past weekend, the film had grossed about $477 million worldwide. The summer movie lineup features many more superheroes hoping to cash in on the comicbook-to-big-screen bandwagon. Its likely one or more will be this years top-earning blockbuster. But what is a blockbuster? Websters defines the term as something notably expensive, effective, successful, large or extravagant. The 1975 film Jaws ushered in the era of the summer blockbuster. Movie studios adopted a marketing strategy focusing on the release of at least one supergrossing flick no later than July 4. Early examples of summer blockbusters include Star Wars, released May 25, 1977; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, released June 4, 1982; Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, released May 23, 1984; and Batman, released June 23, 1989. Each of these films had exceptional opening weekend revenues. Following is a list of this years 10 most anticipated summer blockbusters. Only time will tell which ones will go on to become spectacular Hollywood cash cows and which ones will turn out to be box office bombs.No. 1 X-Men: Days of Future PastRelease date: May 23 Cast: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit Those lovable mutants are back in this adaptation of the Uncanny X-Men storyline Days of Future Past by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. An ensemble of X-Men members work to prevent a war that will lead to a dystopian future and possibly the extinction of their kind. The film is unique in that it is a sequel to both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class and features cast members from both incarnations of the franchise.No. 2 The Amazing Spider-Man 2Release date: May 2 Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and B.J. Novak The web-slinger is back with more Peter Parker angst. Just as Parker is getting comfortable playing the hero, he is forced to face formidable villains in this electrifying sequel. Thats right: Electro is in town and SpiderMan is about to realize that all his enemies seem to have one thing in common: Oscorp.No. 3 GodzillaRelease date: May 16 Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston In the immortal words of Blue Oyster Cult: Oh, no, there goes Tokyo go, go Godzilla. Its not even worth guessing how many Godzilla movies have been made since the original 1954 classic. The most recent American adaptation hit the screen in 1998 and starred Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno. Although it earned a significant amount of derision, it still did well at the box office. Now, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are ready to resurrect the monster for another generation and in the insanely popular and nearly Oscar-worthy trailers, actor Bryan Cranston best known for portraying Walter White in Breaking Bad vehemently sounds the alarm. This one could be epic.No. 4 MaleficentRelease date: May 30 Cast: Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville Disney has taken the iconic villainess from its classic 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty and crafted her story into a dark fantasy. Audiences will learn how betrayal led to Maleficents malevolent mischief.No. 5 Transformers 4: Age of ExtinctionRelease date: June 27 Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver Michael Bay apparently doesnt have anything else to work on, so, why not crank out another Transformers film. This will be the fourth installment in the franchise and someone must have realized it was time to shake things up a bit. This one features a new cast Shia LaBeouf is out, Mark Wahlberg is in and, for the first time in Bays ongoing series, the Autobots and Decepticons are joined by Dinobots. This obviously begs the question: How long before Hollywood decides to pit kaiju against Dinobots? No. 6 Dawn of the Planet of the ApesRelease date: July 11 Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi SmitMcPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer The sequel to 2011s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set about a decade after the events of the first film and after an epidemic has decimated humankind. The survivors find themselves facing a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar. In this sci-fi survival-of-the-fittest scenario, war between ape and man seems unavoidable.No. 7 Jupiter AscendingRelease date: July 18 Cast: Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James DArcy and Tim Pigott-Smith In this sci-fi action adventure film, Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a housecleaner plagued by a lifetime of bad breaks. Then one day Caine played by Channing Tatum shows up and Jupiter discovers that her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.No. 8 Guardians of the GalaxyRelease date: Aug. 1 Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro With Fantastic Four and The XMen tied up at Twentieth CenturySummer movie lineup Fox, Marvel Studios has decided its next big push in the unfolding Marvel Cinematic Universe will be a lesser-known property: Guardians of the Galaxy. While one doesnt need to be a comic book aficionado to name at least a few members of The Avengers, it is unlikely that the average person could cough up the names of this ragtag bunch: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. There are a few others, but so far, these folks seem to be the only ones who will make it to the big screen for this installment unless Adam Warlock shows up in a cameo. To become a blockbuster, this film has to appeal to more than Marvels core fan base. Early trailers have emphasized both the science fiction and humor components of the story. It wouldnt be a surprise if Marvel Studios tossed in a few surprise appearances by one or two of their hottest properties. Robert Downey Jr. isnt that busy, after all.No. 9 LucyRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an actionthriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. The trailers for this film look spectacular, although the story premise seems awfully similar to 2011s thriller Limitless. No. 10 Into the StormRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence Disaster movie genre, meet found footage genre. In Into the Storm, professional storm chasers and not-sosmart thrill-seekers eager to get the perfect picture of a tornado capture the destruction of the town of Silverton during a really bad weather day. Those who adored Twister will likely find this glimpse at Mother Natures dark side appealing. But wait theres more Every summer, there are a few surprise hits films that might not quite reach blockbuster status, but that outperform expectations and earn far more than they Photo courtesy of WALT DISNEY PICTURES Photo by NIKO TAVERNISE Photo courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOS Photo courtesy of UNIVERSAL PICTURESAbove, Scarlett Johansson stars in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

These sleeper hits are often first screened in limited release, distributed to select art house theaters and shown at festivals. Sometimes, due simply to word-of-mouth not to mention social media these films end up expanding into mainstream movie theaters. They offer a welcome alternative to Hollywoods cookie-cutter formula blockbusters. Here are a handful of films that might qualify as this years sleeper hits.No. 5 Blood GlacierLimited release: May 2 Cast: Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Brigitte Kren, Hiller Beseler and Peter Knaack This one promises to evoke classic creature features.

8B Entertainment Leader, April 17, 2014 041714 021314 041714 Rated: PG Based on the No. 1 best-selling book of the same name, Heaven is for Real brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his sons extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth ... things he couldnt possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.A Haunted House 2Genre: Comedy, horror and thriller Cast: Marlon Wayans, Gabriel Iglesias, Jaime Pressly, Ashley Rickards, Essence Atkins, Affion Crockett and Dave Sheridan Director: Mike Tiddes Rated: R Crossing new lines and breaking old barriers, A Haunted House 2 is the sequel to the hilarious boxoffice hit starring Marlon Wayans as Malcolm who, after exorcising the demons of his ex, is starting fresh with his new girlfriend and her two children. After moving into their dream home, Malcolm is once again plagued by bizarre paranormal events. With spine-tingling tension and hilarious punch-lines A Haunted House 2 is inspired by the latest supernatural horror movie franchises and shows that this time its not just the house thats haunted.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Fading GigoloGenre: Comedy Cast: John Turturro, Woody Allen, Liev Schreiber, Sofia Vergara, Sharon Stone, Vanessa Paradis, Max Casella, Bob Balaban, Aida Turturro and Jill Scott Director: John Turturro Not rated Fioravante (John Turturro), at his friend Murrays (Woody Allen) suggestion, enters into the worlds oldest profession, and ends up finding something he didnt know he was looking for.

This horrible event seems to be a blessing in disguise when Esther finds consolation in a support group. Her life of sadness and solitude is opened up to friendship, understanding, and even acceptance. However, friendship and understanding can be very dangerous things when accepted by the wrong people.Small TimeGenre: Drama Cast: Christopher Meloni, Dean Norris, Devon Bostick, Bridget Moynahan, Kevin Nealon, Garcelle Beauvais, Xander Berkeley and Amaury Nolasco Director: Joel Surnow Not rated Al Klein (Christopher Meloni) and his longtime friend, Ash Martini (Dean Norris) own a used car lot. These two know every trick in the book when it comes to selling cars. Martini is a good time charley, who never settled down. Klein, however, still pines for his ex-wife Barbara (Bridget Moynahan) who left him years ago for a more successful man. After their son, Freddy (Devon Bostick) graduates high school, he decides to forego college in favor of selling cars with his old man. Klein is thrilled when Freddy moves in with him its the first time these two have lived under one roof since Freddy was a kid. Barbara, on the other hand, is very far from thrilled. But whats good for Klein might not be the best thing for Freddy, as Freddy quickly transforms from innocent young man into a seasoned car salesman ... leaving Al with a tough decision to make.Tasting MenuGenre: Comedy Cast: Stephen Rea, Finnoula Flannagan, Claudia Bassols, Jan Cornet Rodrigo Cortes and Togo Igawa Director: Roger Gual Not rated One of the greatest restaurants in the world is closing and an eclectic mix of international patrons have arrived in beautiful Catalonia for the final dinner service in this witty and delicious ensemble comedy. As the staff prepare and serve an audacious tasting menu, a young couple in the midst of a divorce who made their reservation a year ago (before separating) reunites for this once-in-a-lifetime meal. Can their romance be rekindled with the help of the widowed countess dining with her husbands ashes? Will the brilliant chef be able to pull off a perfect finale? An Irish and Spanish co-production, Tasting Menu, like all great ensemble dramedies centered on culinary delights, is a crowd-pleasing mishmash of relationships, feuds, and broken dreams that are mended through the simple act of breaking bread and the universal appreciation of great food.

Having debuted as a pilot program two years ago in Kansas City, Mo., and for the first time in the Tampa Bay area last year, the Grammy Museums Music Revolution Project offers talented youth in the area the chance to engage in musical workshops, songwriting courses and mentoring sessions as well as an opportunity to record the material theyve written and to perform their new work live. Students will attend the entire four-week program at Ruth Eckerd Hall from July 21 to Aug. 15 where they will participate in an intensive curriculum including instruction, rehearsals and mentoring with Grammy Award-winning artists, directors and composers. The program will be housed at the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts at Ruth Eckerd Hall, providing students with access to professional spaces as well as a private recording studio on-site. The workshops will conclude with a performance at the all-new Capitol Theatre on Friday, Aug. 15. Last year, 24 students ages 14 to 21 were selected from Tampa Bay-area schools including Berkeley Preparatory School, Blake High School, Calvary Christian High School, Gibbs High School, The University of Tampa, St. Petersburg College, River Ridge High School and Tarpon Springs High School. Applications for the program will be available soon through the Grammy Museums website at www.grammymusuem.org. This national music education initiative was made possible for Tampa Bay area students by the support from the Yob Family Foundation as well as a variety of local Tampa Bay businesses and corporations. The program is entirely free to students who have been selected to participate. We are thrilled to be producing our second year of the Grammy Museums Music Revolution Project and having selected REH as our official affiliate, said Bob Santelli in a press release. Santelli is executive director of the Grammy Museum. Through the passion and commitment of our first-class partners, paired with a dynamic music and arts community in the Tampa Bay region, it is our hope that we can help develop a new generation of innovative music talent. Arts education has been shown to improve students scores on standardized tests, make them more likely to go to college, increase their marketability in the workforces, as well as bring joy into their lives, said Lisa Yob, director of philanthropy for the Yob Family Foundation. We could not be more proud to help bring this landmark program to Tampa Bay for a second year. I am ecstatic that Ruth Eckerd Hall is a part of this incredible opportunity for these students, said Zev Buffman, president and CEO of Ruth Eckerd Hall. We welcome them and our partners at the Grammy Museum with open arms. A key component of this years program will be the addition by GRP of full, state-of-the-art equipment that will be installed in the available recording studio space and control room currently located at the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Students will be able to record their works in progress, edit, write, and record the final product for distribution to music publishers and record companies. Created to broaden musical and creative skills while helping establish relationships, the program is also designed to increase self-esteem, help students develop entrepreneurial skills and grow their ability to secure employment at a post high school age.
