TORRESLARGO Agreeing that the recession had slowed down the process, Largo commissioners directed city staff May 13 to begin a new marketing campaign targeting the 753 businesses outside the community districts who still use soon-to-be-banned pole signs. The Refine the Sign campaign will feature a new logo and a slogan, Largo businesses making a monumental change. Including notices about the 2017 deadline in annual business tax receipt packets have prompted only 125 businesses to build the ground-hugging, monument-style signs that the city would like to see along its major roads, in lieu of tall pole signs. The new sign standards are making a real difference in the appearance of our corridors, said Community Development Director Carol Stricklin. But the standards were changed in 2007, before the recession financially crippled many businesses and made it difficult for them to afford the new signs, which have cost companies who have complied as much as $12,000. So the commission was unanimous in asking staff to extend the 10-year amortization period two more years, requiring compliance by 2019. Mayor Pat Gerard remained adamant in her request that the city find funding to increase the incentive the city offers, currently only $200, not enough to to motivate anybody to do anything, she said. Gerard also asked for the staff to reconsider how signs along the U.S. 19 corridor are handled. Currently, the ordinance allows for taller signs where the roadway is elevated. However, given that the traffic of the whole highway is to be moved to an overpass in coming years, new consideration for the corridor was merited, she said. Look for thewho wins.

For the story, see page 4A.County OKs deal with interim leader By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County government is saving about 20 percent in salary costs while an interim administrator continues at the helm. Commissioners unanimously approved a compensation agreement with Mark Woodard during its May 6 meeting. Woodard will receive an annual salary of $199,500, which is 20 percent less than former administrator Bob LaSala received. LaSala was terminated April 15 and is spending his last 90 days of employment on assignment at St. Petersburg College. Woodard, who was formerly an assistant county administrator and LaSalas chief of staff, will serve at-will and receive the same benefits as other county employees, per his request. Commissioner Ken Welch thanked Woodard for agreeing to the proposed compensation and for not asking for additional benefits. Commissioners then turned their attention to the upcoming search for a new administrator. Before they began Dick Kane, founder of SpotOn!, spoke on behalf of what he described as a silent majority of gray beards, asking that the commission consider those capable gray beards here in Pinellas County, as they begin their search. He said many gray beards male and female lived in the county with experience leading large corporations. He said the very skilled people know how to work with boards and do many of the duties that would be required of a county administrator even though they had not worked for government. More importantly, they are familiar with Pinellas County and invested in its future. There are great leaders and executives that have lived here for decades, he said. We are here. Human Resources Director Peggy Rowe then answered questions about the process should the commission decide to use in-house staff to look for a new administrator versus an outside consultant. Were certainly well equipped to do it. We have the capacity to do that, she said. Rowe said her staff would advertise the position in all appropriate publications. The tentative timetable would be to develop a profile that includes the desirable criteria for an administrator during May, followed by announcing the job during June and July. Rowe said rsums would probably be Photo courtesy of BOBBY LABRANTBobbi LaBrant, 17, vaults at 10 feet during Calvary Invitational at Calvary Christian High School March 7. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Pole-vaulters Bobbi LaBrant, 17, and Jennifer Kistemaker, 16, of Largo both placed at the Florida High School Athletic Association Track & Field Championship May 2-3 in Jacksonville. LaBrant, competing for Indian Rocks Christian School in division 1A, took first with a 10-foot jump. Kistemaker, competing for Osceola High School the next day in division 3A, took second with a jump of 11 feet 6 inches. The teenagers were both homeschooled and now are working on their associates degrees at St. Petersburg College. Their families became friends at Indian Rocks Christian, where Bobbis father coaches track and the four Kistemaker children all trained at one point. Bobbi and Jennifer picked up pole vaulting in seventh and sixth grade, respectively from Jennifers older siblings. Jonathan Kistemaker, five years Jennifers senior, was the first to express an interest in learning to vault, when he attended Keswick Christian School seven years ago. The coach there said, I dont do pole vault, his mother Joyce Kistemaker explained. And so the result was I said, Ill teach him. Joyce had never pole vaulted herself, but she was determined to learn.

That is, until family caregivers consider the value of the time and financial sacrifices made to care for a loved one. If you are a family caregiver, you know all too well that the responsibility requires a considerable amount of your time time and attention your loved one deserves. As a caregiver, you are on call day and night. You coordinate transportation to and from medical appointments, grocery shopping and other errands. You have another home to clean. You are the one who helps pay bills, provides companionship for your loved one and takes care of other tasks as needed. This is often in addition to holding down a job and caring for your immediate family. When you work with a reputable in-home care agency, such as Comfort Keepers, you will still be in charge of the care your loved one receives. You just will not be responsible for the time-consuming, day-to-day care giving responsibilities. In addition to peace of mind, our in-home care delivers a wide range of services, working with seniors and their families to create care plans that meet their specific needs. These individual care plans allow seniors the opportunity to age in place, safely and securely. Our services provide support to help preserve seniors' dignity and independence as well. Comfort Keepers requires a two-hour minimum visit and we base our services around your loved ones needs. It may be meal prep, light housekeeping, a bath visit or it may be both. We create a plan of care that can be affordable and at the same time, specific needs are met on a weekly basis. The greatest benefit to hiring a caregiver from an organization that employs its caregivers is the oversight provided and convenience for everyone involved. Details are not your responsibility. The biggest distinction with Comfort Keepers is: We employ the caregiver, and clients are not burdened with employer laws and requirements. Our employees undergo rigorous background checks, interviews and reference validations. Our caregivers are covered by workers' compensation, general liability and bonding insurance. A large roster of caregivers can "step in" in the event the regular caregiver is unavailable. Ongoing Client Advocate visits are in place to assure a trusting bond between client and caregiver. More seniors prefer to stay in their own home, enjoying cherished memories and maintaining a level of privacy and independence. Let Comfort Keepers be your solution to keeping mom and dad safe in their homes.For two hours to 24/7 care, call us for affordable options!

TORRESLARGO After two years of working to bring them about, the city of Largo now has four incentives designed to attract development in the West Bay Community Redevelopment District, and businesses are ready to use them. Even before the new resolutions passed May 6, some businesses were champing at the bit to use the incentives, said Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon. Word is getting out there that Largo is considering these, and people are calling us excited, she told Largo commissioners, who acted as the Community Redevelopment Board to pass the four incentives. Specifically, investors are interested in buying two of the parcels the city owns within the West Bay Community Redevelopment District. First, the city is completing the terms of an agreement with Urban Edge Development Group, based in Tampa, for the purchase of site A at 158 Ridge Road, Brydon said. The property would be developed into a small, high-end apartment complex. Brydon said the city was evaluating whether the project would qualify for a housing infill program, one of the four programs passed May 6. That incentive is designed to bring high quality urban housing to the district. For rental units that qualify, the developer could receive a grant of $3,000 for each unit, or 5 percent of actual hard construction and land costs, whichever is higher, up to $8,000 per unit, according to city documentation. The second property, site B, is the 500 block of West Bay Drive. The city has been talking to a potential developer about that location for the past six months or so, Brydon said. Though Brydon couldnt disclose many details still being negotiated, the property would turn into mixed-use project, with housing, retail and office elements. That particular block is one that can be mixed-use, she said. For that potential project, the third incentive program might be applicable. The real estate development incentive is designed to create multi-story offices with street frontages and active ground floor use, according to the new resolution. The developers certainly have been calculating the potential incentive as they considered developing in Largo, Brydon said. Theyve been aware. They too will look at tapping into it, she explained. After sites A and B sell, the city will look at how to market its parcels, which include old Largo Community Center property on Fourth Street Northwest, just a block north from West Bay Drive. The most contentious program giving businesses grants based on the number of jobs created might come into play as new owners of the office tower at 801 W. Bay Drive look to fill the building with new tenants. The company asked for a copy of the new first incentive resolution for that reason, Brydon said. We expect thats going to help them go in and do upgrades to that structure. Were really excited about that, she said. The final incentive provides a grant for businesses to convert their pole signs to monument ones, as will be required starting in 2017. Largo commissioners amended the resolution to allow businesses to claim $1,000 instead of the $200 currently offered to businesses outside of the district. Brydon said the city would be working on a marketing campaign to commercial real estate and infill housing brokers, so that everybody knows that were looking for new development, and we want to be able to do well at increasing the viability of downtown.City to pursue tax financing for Clearwater-Largo RoadNow that the incentives are approved, the city will turn its attention to its other community redevelopment district, that around Clearwater-Largo Road. Staff asked the commission to weigh in on pursuing tax increment financing for the district. Such financing would mean that the additional revenue produced from increased property value would be set aside to underwrite special projects or programs within the district. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin pointed out that, if approved, this financing included county tax revenue as well. Staff also wanted to expand the district to reflect the North Greenwood boundaries of Pinellas Countys Health Communities Initiative. The commission agreed with the expanded direction for the district. The city will seek approval from the Pinellas County Board of Commissioners for the change and conduct a study to determine the necessity of the district. The whole process could take 18 to 24 months.

4A Largo Leader, May 15, 2014New residents move into Pinellas Heights By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Air Force veteran Nathan B. Robinson had his one-bedroom apartment in Pinellas Heights looking like a model showroom in eight days. He moved into the fourth floor of the brand new affordable senior housing complex April 23 and unpacked quickly, helping his neighbors get settled in the process. Every little lady in here thats been here two weeks three weeks I had something to do with, trying to help them open boxes, taking boxes away, he said as he leaned in the entryway of his new abode, decorated with an assortment of potted palms and floral prints. Pinellas Heights resident Mary Manier and Vena Searcy, soon to be moved in, admired the interior design of the rooms. All three had attended the ribbon cutting ceremony earlier in the morning on May 9 and were excited to be a part of the contingent of senior residents moving into the fully-leased, 153-unit property. I have seen many housing projects, but I have never seen anything like this, Robinson said. To see every piece of material that they have in here this is well thought out, well thought out. Fine tuning. Manier, who moved in the same day Robinson did, said that she would come by the property and take pictures of the construction, ever since she moved back to the county in November to await its opening. She was pleased with the results. Oh, its a resort, I tell my son and everyone else, she said. Its worth the wait. Pinellas Heights, at 11411 Ulmerton Road in Largo, is a project of the Pinellas County Housing Authority, headquartered next door. The authoritys objective was to provide affordable senior housing. Twentyone of the units are leased 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. But the fact that it was low-income housing didnt stop the various partners from designing a high quality property, one that will live beyond your lifetimes, said Ed Jennings Jr., region IV administrator for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Thats the kind of vision we should have. We should be building properties like this, not for the poor people, not for the people on limited income, (but) places I would live in. That should be the standard for all of us, he said. These kinds of places are becoming more important. Jennings, who originally hails from Tampa, said he was pleased to make the visit in Florida, not only to be home, but also to praise the efforts of a well-run housing authority that spends public funds wisely with the objective of creating community. Many of the speakers heralded the organizations efficiency and called Pinellas Heights a shining example of how private-public partnerships work. Dave Urban, representing a private partner, RBC Capital Markets, said the project turned out so well the company was using pictures of it in one of their ads. Largo Mayor Pat Gerard called the housing authoritys executive director, Debra Johnson, a superstar. Ive been driving by this thing every day for a year and a half, watching it come out of ground like a dream, she said. Were proud to be a partner, and I cant wait to see what she has next. Johnson said she closed the housing authoritys offices so that her staff, arrayed behind her as she spoke, could attend the ceremony. This is a big deal for us, she said. To conclude her remarks, she introduced Robinson, who not long ago was living in Homeless Emergency Project transitional housing. When she visited Pinellas Heights the other day, he was already holding a barbeque out back, she said. This is what its all about, she added. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, about a third of the residents were moved in. But Robinson was determined to help the rest. He had already organized a group of other fourth floor residents for the task. We are ready to help and assist and whatever, he said. Even once you get your place, move your things in, youre still gonna need to put up pictures and different things. We volunteer to do that for you too. We do all that. Thats the fourth floor. He stood on his new balcony overlooking the main entrance of Pinellas Heights, a view he specifically chose. As a former undercover investigator for eventual U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, he intended on helping maintain security for the building, he said. He promised to help Searcy move in, as she bade him farewell and commented that she was glad he liked his new place. But he corrected her. I love it, he said. I dont like nothing. I love this.

She estimated that someone could be hired as early as October. She said if an outside consultant were used, it would cost between $30,000 and $35,000 and delay the process by 30 to 35 days, as time would be needed to negotiate a contract with a consultant. The majority of commissioners supported using Rowe and her staff. Commissioner Susan Latvala said Human Resources had proved its capabilities during a recent search for the head of Business Technology Services. I was pleased with the BTS process after we got rid of the consultant, she said. Welch pointed out that with the exception of LaSala, candidates provided by a consultant during the last search for an administrator were weak. He concurred with Latvala that Rowes staff did a good job with the BTS search. However, Commissioner John Morroni worried about the perception of using in-house staff. The last two times weve used a consultant, he said. He is concerned that using in-house resources would result in a gray cloud hanging over the process. I prefer going out, he said. Commissioner Norm Roche said he had been inclined to stay inside with the search but had since changed his mind, favoring the use of an outside consultant. Ive not seen value added by hiring a consultant, Welch said. Commissioner Janet Long said she was very confident that Rowe and her staff could do the job. Commissioner Charlie Justice said while he was concerned that there could be some perception of an inside game sort of thing, he still believed the best course was to use Rowe and her team. Im very concerned about the perception to our employees, Morroni said. Commission Chair Karen Seel said the county had used a consultant for about four candidate searches. Ive been disappointed every time, she said. In the end, the commission voted 5-2 to use inhouse resources for the search. Morroni and Roche voted no. The next step will be a meeting to discuss the criteria to be used to create the job profile, as well as the process for screening rsums and applicants. Rowe said her staff would talk to references given by the candidates as well as former employers and people they had worked with to come up with a list of pros and cons for each candidate the same as would be done by a consultant. Seel pointed out that Rowes department did not work for the Board of County Commissioners, but was an entity of the Unified Personnel System, which reports to 11 independent boards. Commissioners also agreed to act as ambassadors when attending meetings, such as the Florida Association of Counties, to spread the word about the job search. Rowe said her staff would begin work on a list of potential characteristics to include with the job profile criteria. County Attorney Jim Bennett told commissioners that the Sunshine Law would take effect as soon as rsums were received regardless of whether they were sent to a consultant or to the countys Human Resources department. Anything we send and anything provided to them would be public record, he said. DEAL, from page 1A Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERHuman Resources Director Peggy Rowe explains the process for searching for a new county administrator during a May 6 commission meeting.The commission also talked about allowing businesses to negotiate for flexibility for the converted signs. Bigger plazas with multiple stores, like the Largo Mall and Tri-City Plaza, should be given more leeway, said Commissioner Curtis Holmes. I think you need to put a little bit of wiggle room on this, he said. Stricklin said a process could be put in place to allow requested leniencies to be negotiated with staff and reviewed by the citys Planning Review Board. When the city of Clearwater enacted stricter sign standards in 1988, a similar process allowed businesses to negotiate for more square footage on their sign than was permitted by ordinance. I would like to look at flexibilities for all of them, not ultimate flexibility, but some more than what we have now, Gerard said. Commissioner Harriet Crozier asked why the proposed marketing campaign was being launched so late, with only three years left before the original deadline. The results have not been great, Stricklin said. Thats really why were here is because the commission has told us we havent gotten the word out adequately. So this represents a different level of effort of that marketing. Brown suggested that any increased incentive the city did enact should be offered only until the end of the original deadline in 2017, giving an incentive for businesses to comply by then. He didnt agree that businesses werent making the transition due to a lack of knowledge about the changes. Theyre not going to do it until we make them do it, he said. The commission agreed May 6 to give the businesses in the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District a $1,000 grant to help with the costs of converting pole signs. Brown said he planned to visit businesses in the district, where his own chiropractic practice is based, and explain the incentive, finally at an amount Im not embarrassed to go in and tell them about. He also asked the commission to consider doing away with an ordinance that allows temporary feather signs to be placed outside of businesses for 45 days. The city doesnt have the staff to enforce the time limit, and he said he knew most businesses kept the waving flags up until they fell down. I dont hear anything except how lousy they look, he said. SIGN, from page 1A VAULTING, from page 1Acoaches, which included assisting David Mason of the 727 Youth Track and Field Club. Ive learned by watching and asking, she said. And my kids have taught me along the way, as we struggled to figure how to do certain things, (and) weve been able to implement them. Bobby LaBrant, who has coached track at Indian Rocks for 17 years, wont touch vaulting with a 10foot, or any size, pole. So when Jennifer began training with the team at Osceola High, he was in a bit of a predicament. He begged Joyce to stay, he said; having her as a vault coach has been a good fit. He personally cannot handle the stress of watching his own daughter fly 10 feet into the air. I had to remove myself from the field, he said. A month ago, (I said), Im leaving. I dont want to be here. Its all you, and Im just a parent way far away. Joyce said she can understand. Its extremely a technical sport with dangerous elements anywhere in the process. As a parent looking in, theres that fear, she said. She and Bobbi have built a trusting relationship that allows Joyce to push her to try a bigger pole or a different technique with no hesitation. But she is pleased to leave Jennifers training to Mason, recognizing that its healthy for parents to step back. I have never had trouble coaching Jen except for now when shes injured. That to me was the most difficult thing, she said. Jennifer tore her ACL practicing her second-best track event, hurdles. She was medically cleared to compete the day before districts, but hadnt practiced for two weeks and wasnt sure if she could vault, much less how she would do. That was a whole new aspect of it. I was ranked to win states by a foot. Just going through all the motions of districts, regionals and then finally getting the states, I didnt know how I would do. I just trusted the Lord to be able to do my best, she said. Her personal best was a height of 12 feet. At districts, she jumped 9 feet 6 inches with a really short approach and a little pole, she said. She won regionals with an 11-foot jump. She didnt make her best at states, but was content with second place, she said. In the end, she did amazing with the injury, Joyce said. Bobbi went into states in the top three, with a personal best of 10 feet 6 inches. It was rainy and wet at the University of North Florida campus, dismal conditions for anyone to do well. Bobbi said she didnt think she could take first. I was prepared to do my best, but when the other girls didnt perform like they were supposed to, I dont know, it gave me a lot of confidence after that, she said. Bobbi had a clear head (and) determination. She was very focused, Joyce added. Vaulting doesnt make her too nervous, Bobbi said, but she was glad to have the event finished in order to focus on the 800-meter run, where she placed sixth, and the 4x400-meter relay. Indian Rocks Christian has the fastest time for that relay of any division in the county, Bobby said. The team placed sixth at states. Though her height of 5 feet 2 inches is a disadvantage at pole vault, Bobbi is the faster of the two girls. One of the key elements of vaulting is your run. You have to be fast. The faster you are, the better you are at vaulting. And she brings a lot of speed to the table, Joyce said. Bobbi also runs cross-country and plays soccer. Though she loves vaulting, she said she cant focus on one thing. She only vaults during the two months of track season. Jennifer has pursued vaulting more ardently. She plays volleyball, but makes sure she can train at pole vault during the summer track club season. I love it. Its taught me so much, physically, mentally and emotionally, she said. I couldnt imagine my life without it. Its going to be tough these next couple of months without it, after surgery. Surgery on her ACL was May 12. Jennifer said shes hoping to be recovered by the start of the new school year, her last year competing at the highschool level. She hopes to be able to vault in college. Thats the dream, she said. Bobbi said she knew she wanted to run in college, but hadnt considered vaulting until she took first at state. Her personal best is tied for the Indian Rocks Christian School record with Jennifers older sister, Rachel. Joyce said she doesnt doubt Bobbi will jump higher. Besides, Bobbis up-and-coming competition is her younger brother, who is just learning to vault. You just need to get the bar up as high as you can before you leave, Joyce cautioned her. Whats exciting is we have two potential state champions this year again. Thats really fun. Another Indian Rocks Christian competitor also has potential at vault. Joyce has been working with sophomore Joshua Sackett for the last two years. He came in eighth at state with a jump of 11 feet 6 inches. The friendship between the two girls, soon to be seniors, helps push them forward. Jennifer attends Bobbis meets and sometimes comes to her practice. Theyre both just great girls, Bobby said. We have one more year with them.

TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners gave staff the goahead May 13 to pursue contracting a company that would build a tree adventure course behind the Highland Recreation Complex. The course would include a zipline over the lake to the northeast, along Lake Avenue, and back to the large group of trees directly north of the newly renovated complex. It could include a plethora of different climbing challenges, with ropes, nets, ladders or suspended platforms, at different levels of difficulty. Participants would stay hooked to an overhead cable at all times, ensuring safety should they stumble while climbing through the canopy of the trees. The activities and various structural elements would blend into the trees and not affect the walking path underneath it, said parks superintendent Greg Brown. Currently, tree zipline courses are a growing industry, but are not offered anywhere else in Pinellas County. The closest zipline course is a steel one at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, with a course recently constructed in Sarasota. Commissioner Woody Brown asked why no one else in the area had tried such a concept. Lack of imagination. I think Largo has long been on the cutting edge of recreation activities, Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne said. I think this is a very popular activity. Its always nice to be first. The city will request bids from companies interested in putting up the costs to build and maintain the course as well as protect the trees. The winning company would run the course with its own staff, potentially out of a small building designed to store equipment and help customers sign up and go through a mandatory training to participate. The city would receive a percentage of the revenues. At least two companies are interested in building an adventure course, specifically at Highland, Greg Brown said. The commissioners had many questions about safety and logistics, much of which will have to be worked out in the contract process, but they enthusiastically supported the idea.

Exp. 6/7/14 051514 Man sentenced, declared sexual predator By JULIANA A. TORRES LARGO A 38-year-old Tampa man, already registered as a sexual offender, was sentenced to seven years in prison May 6 in a case involving a 14-year-old Largo girl he met online and planned to have sex with, according to Largo police. Thornell Thomas pleaded guilty to charges of traveling to meet a minor, seduction of a child using the Internet or an electronic device and failing to register an email or instant message name as a sexual offender, according to Pinellas County court records. As part of his sentence, he also was declared a sexual predator. The case began Aug. 14, 2013, when the aunt of the 14-year-old girl reported a suspicious person parked in front of her home on Sherwood Drive. The aunt told Largo police that she suspected it was an adult man who met her niece online. Responding officers identified the man as Thomas and realized that he was a sexual offender on probation. Thomas told the officers that he was waiting to buy stereo speakers from somebody from Craigslist, police reported. Detective Nathan Dix interviewed the girl, who told him that she met the person on a mobile chat messenger application about a month before and arranged to meet and have sex in his vehicle. The girl was trying to leave her home to meet Thomas when her aunt grew suspicious. Dix spoke to Thomas, who initially lied, but eventually admitted to being there to meet the victim. He denied knowing that the victim was 14 years old. Forensic reviews of both the victims and Thomas cellphones, as well as a laptop computer found in Thomas vehicle at the time, proved their online relationship and provided probable cause to arrest Thomas. Earlier this year, Thomas pleaded guilty to three counts of violation of probation and was sentenced to five years in the Florida Department of Corrections. His latest sentence concludes the case. In a city email, Police Chief Jeff Undestad commended the detectives involved, adding that the case could have ended up much differently. Instead, a sexual offender earned the status of predator (and) is off our streets, he wrote.Hospice employee arrested for theftLARGO An employee of Suncoast Hospice was arrested May 5 for forging time sheets resulting in $44,883 of over payments, according to Largo police. Marlana Lewis, 27, of St. Petersburg was charged with grand theft and scheme to defraud, both felonies. She was fired March 25 from the Largo hospice at 5771 Roosevelt Blvd., where she was employed as a home-based certified nursing assistant. The hospice administrative staff called police April 1 to report their suspicions of Lewis, police said. She had forged the signature of a managing employee, they told police. When they confronted her, she admitted to turning in falsified time sheets, according to reports. Detective Lara Young took on the investigation, determining that Lewis had forged 139 time sheets over three years. Lewis was arrested and booked into Pinellas County Jail. Thornell Thomas Marlana LewisBank robber in custodyPINELLAS PARK A 22-yearold transient used a bomb threat to get tellers at a bank in Pinellas Park to hand over an undisclosed amount of cash just before 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 9. Pinellas Park police reported that a male suspect went to Grow Financial, 6900 Park Blvd., and set a bag on the counter and told the teller that the bag contained a bomb and then demanded money. The teller gave money to the man and he fled on foot, leaving the bag behind. Pinellas Park police, along with Tampa polices bomb squad and K-9 units, responded. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office provided support from the air. Nearby businesses were evacuated. Tampa PDs bomb squad retrieved the bag and took the device to an isolated area of the bank property. The bomb turned out to be an alarm clock with a television antenna. Meanwhile, K-9 officer G.D. Weaver and his K-9 partner Tank trailed the suspect and caught him a short distance from the bank, according to the police report. Carmine James Macedonio, formerly of New Port Richey, was taken into custody about 5:45 p.m. The money was recovered. Police reported that Macedonio received puncture wounds and lacerations on his legs when he was taken down by Tank after resisting arrest. The FBI also responded and interviewed Macedonio on possible federal charges. Macedonio was booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 4:06 a.m. May 10. He was charged with resisting arrest without violence, deprive officer of means of communication, robbery with a deadly weapon or firearm and possession of a hoax bomb. Bond for the charges related to the robbery totaled $70,150. He is being held without bond on four charges from Pasco County, including violation of parole trafficking in stolen property, violation of parole scheme to defraud and burglary.73-year-old drowns at Fort De Soto ParkTIERRA VERDE A 73-yearold man from Colombia visiting Fort De Soto Park with his family was pulled from the water near the pier Saturday afternoon and later died. Pinellas County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to the park at 3500 Pinellas Bayway South in St. Petersburg about 3:17 p.m. May 10. According to deputies, Jaime Suarez was in the water when family members noticed he was unresponsive. Bystanders assisted in pulling Suarez from the water, began CPR and called 911.

Thurs. Eve. & Fri.-Sat.-Sun. All Day. 051514 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners agreed to changes in the Tourist Development Plan May 6 that clears the way for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to apply for a portion of bed tax distributions. Clearwater voters approved a referendum Nov. 5, 2013, supporting Clearwater Marine Aquariums plans to build a new $160 million aquarium where City Hall currently stands. CMA plans to pay the city $7.5 million for construction of a new city hall, and it will pay to demolish the current city hall and build the new aquarium. The city will retain ownership of the land and grant a 60-year lease to the CMA to operate the aquarium. The state Legislature approved $2 million in funding for the aquarium in the 2014 budget, which still must be approved by Gov. Rick Scott. To get money from Pinellas Countys Tourist Development (bed) Tax proceeds, the countys plan had to be amended, which commissioners did May 6. Now CMA can apply for funds the same as other facilities, such as sports stadiums, covered by the plan. Another plan amendment increases the maximum amount of available annual funding from $1 million to $4.5 million, or 3/4s of 1 percent of the bed tax, whichever is greater. The amount a facility must provide was changed from a $2 to $1 match to a $1 to $1 match, and the annual cap of $500,000 a year per facility was removed. The commission also approved new capital funding guidelines agreed on by the commission and the Tourist Development Council during an April 1 meeting. Commission Chair Karen Seel said she wanted to make sure the guidelines allowed for funding multiple projects, not just one. She responded to Commissioner Charlie Justices question about flexibility by saying that anything could be funded as long as it fit within the state statutes. The TDC plan specifies the allowable uses. Facilities that are granted bed tax funding now will be reimbursed after the completion of projects, something that should not affect their ability to bond, said Michael Zas, senior assistant county attorney. He said reimbursements versus paying lump sums would allow projects to set construction milestones. The aquarium isnt the only facility in line for bed tax money. In addition, commissioners have expressed concern to allocate more for beach nourishment due to shrinking pots of money from the federal and state governments. Pinellas County collects a 5 percent Tourist Development Tax on all overnight tourism accommodations in the county, which is levied on customers of hotels, motels, condominiums, campgrounds, apartments and private homes that rent accommodations for less than six months. In other business, the commission: Approved a two-year contract with NDL LLC of Lutz for landscape maintenance services, including mowing, for $1.78 million. Pricing, terms and conditions are based on an existing contract with Pasco County. Approved a resolution approving Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas Countys plans to finance a multifamily residential housing project through bonds in a principal amount not to exceed $5 million. Two sites located in Clearwater are included in the project. The first is at 1000 North Keene Road and the second is at 2657 State Road 590.Aquariums now eligible for bed tax fundsLARGO Detectives with Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Narcotics Division arrested 10 suspects for sale and distribution of synthetic cannabinoids after a year-old multi-jurisdictional investigation. All 10 were arrested in Pinellas County. According to the sheriffs report, the suspects were manufacturing and packaging the synthetic cannabinoids in four locations throughout Pinellas County and distributing the product to at least four local convenient stores. They also were shipping it to locations in eight states, including Nevada, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and New Hampshire. The suspects were arrested between April 7 and April 8. The investigation began in June of 2013. The joint investigation between the Sheriffs Office, federal Drug Enforcement Administration and The Office of Statewide Prosecution began after a tip came in that Shamir Sultanali Nathani, 32, of Holiday was actively distributing synthetic cannabinoids in the Tampa Bay area and throughout the United States. Nathanis product was sold to an undercover operative in September, which tested positive for the substance AM2201. Subsequent seized packages tested positive for the substances UR144 and XLR11. These three substances are illegal under Florida law. Detectives were then led to a second suspect that Nathani was working for, who was identified as Pyarali Shamsuddin Heerani, 48, of Tampa. The investigation continued and through various investigative techniques, eight other suspects were identified to be working under Heerani and Nathani. These eight suspects were involved in the manufacturing and distributing of synthetic cannabinoids in four different locations, which inPhoto courtesy of PCSOBooking photos of those arrested during Operation Spice King are pinned to a map showing the manufacturing location (Pinellas County) and distribution locations in nine states, including Florida.cluded two public storage facilities and two private residences. Detectives said once the product was manufactured the suspects then distributed the product throughout Florida, including at least four local convenient stores and also shipped to eight different states to include Nevada, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and New Hampshire. According to detectives, the suspects shipped approximately 1,000 parcels from 2011 to 2014 via UPS. 67 kilos of finished product were seized during the investigation. For people who continue to sell this poison, they need to stop. Theyre hurting the kids as they selfishly try to get rich quick. The only thing they are going to get themselves is a quick trip to jail, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri during a May 6 press conference. They need to think who they are selling this to and if this was their son, their daughter, their brother, their sister whos smoking this stuff. It is adversely affecting our community, its making people violent, it has delusional qualities to it, it is not marijuana, it doesnt mellow people out and it really is a problem. The suspects were charged with the following. Pyarali Shamsuddin Heerani One count of conspiracy to distribute synthetic cannabinoids. Heerani remains a fugitive on RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) charges. Shamir Sultanali Nathani Two counts of conspiracy to distribute synthetic cannabinoids and violation of RICO Dadhichi Naik, 37, of Largo conspiracy to commit racketeering Hasnain Brohi, 26, of Houston conspiracy to distribute synthetic cannabinoids Farkunda Akhtar, 21, of Houston possession of synthetic cannabinoid with intent to sell Hurara Hassan, 33, of Houston possession of controlled substance with intent to sell/manufacture/distribute Akber Ghazanfer, 33, of Houston possession of marijuana and possession of controlled substance with intent to sell Sheraz Khowaja, 26, of Houston possession of controlled substance with intent to sell Trudy Nathani, 46, of Holiday own/operate a residence for manufacturing narcotics Joanel Volcin, 35, of St. Petersburg possession of controlled substance Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. POLICE, from page 5Atrack about 7:08 p.m. May 6. Pinellas Park Fire Department paramedics offered aid to both, but one died. Dale J. Boorman was pronounced dead at 7:11 p.m. Boormans father was at the track and he was notified that his son had died. The second person involved, Matthew Gardner, 23, of Lakeland did not suffer serious injuries. A preliminary investigation revealed that Boorman had been riding his motorbike north along the inside of the track. Gardner was riding south along the outside edge when he entered a jump just prior to a turn in the track. As Gardner went airborne, he entered Boormans lane of travel and his motorbike struck Boorman in the head and upper body. This case is being handled by the Pinellas County Medical Examiners office and is classified by the Pinellas Park police as an accidental death.80-year-old arrested for abusePINELLAS PARK An 80-year-old woman was charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment as the result of a May 9 investigation by Pinellas County Animal Services and Pinellas Park police. Pinellas Park PD announced Friday afternoon that they were on scene with Animal Services staff at a home on 102nd Terrace North after receiving reports that dogs and cats living there were malnourished and not receiving proper care. At that time, police reported that six cats and three dogs had been removed from the residence. Photo courtesy of PINELLAS PARK PDOne of three dogs removed from a home in Pinellas Park is loaded into an Animal Services vehicle May 9.The dogs appear to be malnourished due to their weight and overall appearance, the report said. There are more animals still in the home that animal control believes are in the walls or the ceiling, the police report said. It is believed that there may be animals buried in the backyard of the home. This has yet to be confirmed. About three hours later, Pinellas Park PD reported that Edna Carr would be charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment. Florida Statute defines abandon as to forsake an animal entirely or to neglect or refuse to provide or perform the legal obligations for care and support of an animal by its owner. By law, animal owners must provide sufficient food, water and exercise.Five arrested on narcotics chargesPINELLAS PARK Five were arrested Friday, May 9, and one remains at large, after Pinellas Park police served three search warrants on three different targets of narcotics-related investigations. In addition to drugs and a firearm, narcotics officers seized several thousand dollars found during the search. Ashlee Brown, 26, was arrested at her home on 43rd Street North for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of cocaine with intent to sale. Police said she had a little less than a pound of marijuana and about one pound of crack and powder cocaine. She also was arrested for renting property for the purpose of distributing narcotics, which is a first-degree felony due to her having two minors (under age 5) in the home. Percell Haynes Sr., 52, was arrested at his apartment on 76th Avenue for sales and delivery of cocaine. Tofaya Perry, 38, was arrested at a neighboring apartment on 76th Avenue for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of MDMA (ecstasy). Police said she had about a half pound of marijuana. She also was arrested for renting property for the purpose of distributing narcotics. Michael Rome Williams, 42, was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of MDMA. Antonio S. Levy, 38, was arrested for felon in possession of a firearm, armed trafficking of hyrdrocodone and possession of marijuana. George Haynes, 30, remains at large. He is wanted for trafficking and sale of heroin. This operation was successful due to the joint effort of our narcotics and criminal investigations detectives, as well as members of patrol operations and the Community Policing Redevelopment Policing Unit, according to a statement from Pinellas Park Police Department.

Florida Botanical Gardens honors ScaffidiLARGO Former Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation president Chuck Scaffidi had a new water statue dedicated to him at the May 4 Diggin the Arts Festival. The Diggin the Arts Festival at the Florida Botanical Gardens celebrated all things art with artists, vendors and art-lovers filling the winding and natural trails of the Gardens. The new statue, which was built by local artists Owen Pach and Jonathan Schork, is located outside of the wedding garden area. It stems from an idea proposed by Scaffidi more than two years ago. The sculpture has yet to be named. A contest to give it a new name ended May 9. In addition to the sculpture, artists had the opportunity to compete in the Plein air painting contest, which had artists painting plants in different areas of the gardens during the show. Lawrence Pumprey took home $200 as the best of the show. Vivek Lakhotia won first place and $150, and Judy Pumprey got $100 and second place. Charles Gray and Jane Lawson both received an honorable mention with a $50 gift certificate and a one year membership to the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation. Rounding out the event were an instrument petting zoo provided by the Florida Orchestra, a drawing for a uniquely painted rain barrel, classes on a variety of topics and vendors selling plant and art related items. The Florida Botanical Gardens is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo, with an alternate entrance at 12211 Walsingham Road. The gardens remain open from 7 a.m. until dusk every day, with free admission during daylight hours. For more information, visit www.flbg.org or call 727-582-2100. Videos about the Gardens can be seen on YouTube at www.youtube.com/pcctv1.County names EMS Professionals of the YearCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners named the 2014 Emergency Medical Services Professionals of the Year during the May 6 meeting.

Exp. 6/30/14 How Dropbox and Evernote are great tools for the genealogistIve been using two programs lately that have made my multicomputer life measurably easier, especially when it comes to doing genealogy research and keeping track of my collected information they are Dropbox (www.drop box.com) and Evernote (www.ev ernote.com). Both of these programs could be put in the realm of cloud computing. Think of cloud computing as the use of the Internet for storage or processing functions ... those actions that normally we would totally perform on our personal computers. Both of the programs are most useful if you have multiple computers and portable devices (like tablets or smart phones) on which you save some of the same Information, and which you want to keep synchronized. For example, say I had a research journal on my desktop computer that I need to work on whenever I can. So I put it on my laptop as well so I can work on it when Im at the library or traveling. Add a to-do list that I keep on both machines, a census worksheet that I want available at all times, my genealogy computer program file, and well, you get the idea. You can see that pretty soon keeping my two computers synchronized can become a confusing process. How can I easily ensure that the latest revision of all of those files is on both of my computers? This is where Dropbox and Evernote simplify my life. A software program that I download from Dropbox.com to each of my computers automatically creates a Dropbox folder on them, and then takes over the job of keeping all of the files that I put into those folders synchronized. Here is how that works. I update my census file on my desktop computer, and when I save the file, it is automatically uploaded to the Dropbox server. When I turn on my laptop and connected to the Internet, the Dropbox program senses that the version of the file on the laptop is now out of date and downloads the most recent version from the Dropbox server. Now lets say Im at the library with my laptop and I create a word processing document about some genealogy research that I have done. I save it to the Dropbox folder on my laptop, it automatically is uploaded to the Dropbox server, and then it is downloaded to the Dropbox folder on my desktop computer (or it will be as soon as my desktop connects to the Internet). Dropbox also serves as a backup device and file archive. I can sign in to my account at www.dropbox.com and restore deleted files (in case I got careless and got rid of something I didnt mean to). I also can see previous versions of a file theres the archive function. Dropbox is a free service if you restrict your total file size to no more than two gigabytes. There is a monthly fee if you need more space, and there are a couple of different levels of service you can choose from. Most of us should not need the extra space, however, because two gigabytes will accommodate a lot of pictures (1,000 at two megabytes each) and several million documents about the size of this article. The service does become addictive, however. Ive found that the more comfortable I become with the service, the more apt I am to automatically save a document to the Dropbox just for the convenience of having it accessible on all of my computers when I need it. Evernote operates under the same basic concept as Dropbox; that is, it operates from a piece of software loaded on each of your computers, it transfers saved notes to the Evernote computers, and it automatically synchronizes the saved notes on all of your computers. The primary difference between the two services is that whereas Dropbox deals with files that are created with other programs (such as Word or Excel), Evernote is more of an authoring tool. You use the program itself to create notes that are then synchronized among your various computers. Imagine how helpful it would be to jot some quick research notes on your laptop or tablet while at the library and have it waiting for you on your computer for additional work when you get home. Its capabilities go beyond that, however. Once you have written a note you can tag it with one or more identifiers for easy retrieval later. For instance, I might type a note on my laptop while visiting my relatives in Nebraska, and tag it with the words genealogy, Grandpa, and census so I can easily find it again among my many notes by simply searching on any of those words. There are some other capabilities of Evernote that might be of interest to you, so I encourage you to check out their website. Evernote is a free service so long as you dont upload more than 60 megabytes of data per month to the Evernote servers. This is a different accounting method than Dropbox uses, but it still equates to a lot of data. If you need a higher transfer limit, you can get it for a monthly fee, but for casual use, 60 megabytes is ample. Each of the product websites have an introductory video that explains the essentials and gives examples of uses of the products. If you have any interest at all in using the services, be sure to watch the videos to see even more features than I have explained here. I myself use both Dropbox and Evernote on my laptop and both my wifes and my desktop computers. I also have both loaded on my IPod and iPad where they work essentially the same way. For those important files and notes then, all of my computing devices are always synchronized and up-to-date. There are other services that operate in much the same way as these two: One Note, One Drive, and Google Docs come to mind. And just to show that I dont play favorites, I use all of them also. The point is that the capability to backup and synchronize files is easy to acquire and use today, and you should look into it if you think it would be advantageous. I personally find that both programs are very helpful in supporting my data management tasks, and especially genealogy research.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

TORRES School notesCLEARWATER Clearwater Central Catholic High School recently announced that senior Destiny Chase was awarded the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Scholarship. This college scholarship is funded by an anonymous donor in memory of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. She established the first Catholic school in the nation, founded the first American congregation of Religious Sisters (Sisters of Charity), and established the first American Catholic orphanage.

TORRESLARGO For one last time, Largo High School alumni walked through the old halls and under brick archways where they attended classes, played sports and participated in a plethora of activities during the 57-year history of the facility. The school hosted an open house May 12-13, a final homecoming before the school is demolished to make way for new, state-of-the-art buildings. Demolition will begin this summer after school ends. Students will take classes from portables during the two projected years it takes to build the new high school. The bricks that make up much of the architecture of the school along with locker doors, bleacher seats or pieces of the gym floor are being sold as fundraiser for the LHS Athletic Boosters. They will help pay for items the capital fund wont cover, like a new concession stand and bathrooms on the visitors side of the field. As of the start of the open house May 13, the Boosters had sold more than 1,000 bricks, said booster president Dean Newton. Im really amazed at the people that showed up, Newton said, who, while not a alumnus, had seven children attend the high school. Its neat to see the classes congregate. He estimated that about 800 attended the first night of the open house and said about 1,000 were expected on the final night. It already looks like theres more here tonight than there was last night, he said. Many of the alumni claimed memorabilia they had contributed to the school: a quilt created as a school project that hung in the library, old yearbooks and trophies. In the band room, Robin Benoit, wife of band director Christopher Benoit, helped former drum majors collect trophies won while they were at the helm of the marching band. More than 500 trophies had been labeled with names in hopes of paring down their quantity, she said. And the trophies made up just a portion of the items that had to be moved out by June 6. Principal Brad Finkbiner said he noticed that open house was a chance for alumni to see those in classes that preceded or followed their own, those they wouldnt catch up with at their own reunions. They are seeing folks that they were in school with maybe not the same class and just really are reminiscing, he said. He also was encouraged to see the current students interact with the alumni. Students who participated the first night had so much fun talking with the alumni that they had decided to come back. Its that community thread that runs through this place, and its really cool, he said.

The new model, called Pinellas Innovates: Pathways to Personalized Learning, is designed to prepare more students for success after high school. Starting with the 2015-16 school year, the district will open one new school in partnership with the New Tech Network dedicated to the personalized learning model. The same year, several existing high schools will institute the personalized learning plan for select students. In January 2015, in Phase 3 of the initiative, Pinellas County Schools will receive $2.5 million in funding to implement personalized learning. Through a 15-year process, this innovative model is expected to expand to all schools in Pinellas County. We view this as transformational for education in Pinellas County, said Michael Grego in a press release. Grego is superintendent of Pinellas County Schools. This new model creates a system where each student is empowered to design a school experience that best meets their needs and goals. This is already happening for some students. We want it to happen for all. Personalized learning can include: Integrated project-based learning that takes into consideration cultural perspectives and post-secondary aspirations to help students relate to the work they do Flexible schedules and course time requirements so students can advance sooner based on subject mastery and not on a prescribed semester schedule Student, parent and teacher input on curriculum that best meets student needs and goals Monitoring of students to help them and their parents navigate and design their learning experience Enhanced technology resources that help students meet their learning goals Each part of the personalized learning plan is aligned to the districts Strategic Plan, and implementation will involve collaboration from stakeholders including teachers, administrators, parents and community leaders. The district plans to launch personalized learning programs in at least four of the districts traditional high schools identified through a rigorous selection process. Several high schools have been selected for this opportunity. Clearwater, Lakewood, Northeast and Pinellas Park high schools have been have been selected to create plans for personalized learning programs in their schools. Seminole High School has also been selected for this opportunity in partnership with the Career Academies of Seminole. The plan is designed to encourage autonomy within the schools that launch personalized learning, said Rita Vasquez, executive director of high school education. We want school leaders and teachers empowered to create a system that is personalized for the needs of students at that school. After receiving a $64,518 Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Next Gen Systems Initiative grant for the first phase of implementation, the district was able to design a comprehensive personalized learning strategic plan. The Phase 1 grant provided the district with a number of resources, including a full-time project manager, a district-chosen planning partner with experience in launching personalized learning schools (New Tech Network), a visit to a New Tech Network school, extensive technical assistance from consultants, personalized learning resources provided on the Next Gen Systems Portal and potential for individual school planning and launch funding in Bill championed by PPHS Criminal Justice Academy gets legislative approvalPINELLAS PARK A specialty license plate designed by students from Pinellas Park High Schools Criminal Justice Academy that honors fallen law enforcement officers has passed the Florida House and Senate and now awaits the signature of the governor. Once signed by Governor Rick Scott, Floridians will be able to purchase the specialty plate with the proceeds going to help children. The CJAs Class of 2014 has been instrumental in making the specialty plate a reality. It has taken three years and a lot of work to overcome the moratorium on specialty plates in Florida to make the class dream a reality, wrote Michelle Topping, the Criminal Justice Academys program coordinator. PPHS students, with the guidance of their teacher Richard Cross, designed the plate, collected the needed signatures from the public, and traveled to Tallahassee to support and lobby the bills passage. The plate will have the saying A Hero Remembered Never Dies at the bottom of it. The annual usage fees collected as a result of purchasing the specialty plate will be distribruted to the Police and Kids Foundation, Inc. Sen. Jack Latvala and Representatives Ed Hooper, Larry Ahern and Dwight Dudley sponsored the bill. The entire Pinellas County legislative delegation voted for it.Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOLSThis specialty license plate designed by students at Pinellas Park High Schools Criminal Justice Department honors fallen law enforcement officers. future grant phases. Funds received for Phase 2 will be a significant catalyst for the next steps. The district seeks to accelerate progress toward personalized learning experiences for all students by: Opening a stand-alone incubator high school in partnership with the New Tech Network Launching personalized learning programs within in at least four of the districts 16 traditional high schools with a rigorous selection process Utilizing an interactive learning management system that will tap into current technologies and allow for students, parents and teachers to navigate pathways toward graduation, college acceptance and beyond Removing state and local barriers in order to award credit based on demonstrated mastery not tied to or dependent on seat time As a result of this initiative, Pinellas County Schools will: Increase the percentage of students that graduate college and career ready to at least 80% by 2020 as measured by ACT and SAT scores Ensure that personalization will become the dominant pedagogy used in district classrooms by 2020 Create and implement personalized learning programs within existing schools beginning with 1 percent of the student population in 2015 and growing to a minimum of 25 percent by 2020.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK The AIDS Partnership, a faith-based volunteer agency, will host the local observance of the 31st International AIDS Candlelight Memorial May 18, 6 p.m., at Good Samaritan Church, 6085 Park Blvd. The candlelight memorial was first started in 1983 as an international campaign to raise awareness of the HIV epidemic. The third Sunday in May is a date observed by 1,200 community organizations in 115 countries, according to the organizations website, www.candlelightmemorial.org. Locally, the AIDS Partnership has observed the day for almost 20 years, said its president Ellen Bauer. Its important for many reasons. The world needs to recognize that HIV epidemic is still present, she said. We recognize those who have gone before, and we want those who are affected by HIV now to have some comfort and to know that people are still standing guard and keeping the light on AIDS. The AIDS Partnership seeks to bridge the gap between those suffering from AIDS or HIV and the faith community. An Episcopal priest Rand Frew and Mary Stephan founded the organization in 1994. When Stephans son became infected with HIV, she felt alienation from her Presbyterian church family, Bauer explained. She felt that she could not bring her whole story to all of the faith community, she said. She became aware that there were many people who felt they couldnt bring their tragedy to the faith community. So Stephan worked to unite local Catholics, Lutherans and those of her own denomination to teach the community. She wanted the AIDS Partnership to lovingly give that assistance and support to those struggling with the disease as well as destroy any stigma related to it, Bauer said. Her basic thing was that those that are hurting sit next to you in worship, and they cant even reach out for your help, she said. When Stephan became ill, its volunteers incorporated the organization into a recognized nonprofit in 2002, Bauer said. Stephan died in 2006, but her mission continues. The HIV epidemic is not only an ongoing problem, but prevalent in Pinellas County. In 2013, Pinellas County reported 210 new cases of HIV infection, the seventh highest number of cases in the state, according to the Florida Department of Health. Bauer said the younger generation isnt taking the disease seriously anymore. Our youth these days have no memory of devastation that occurred 20 years ago. These young people are now putting themselves at risk for the same personal devastation, she said. Young peoples attitude is Well, I can take a pill, or Its controllable, without any real internalization (that) the virus destroys their body and the drugs have devastating side effects also. The AIDS Partnership is a small organization with only a four-person board. But theyre all volunteers. Along with providing awareness, the partnership offers support to those infected with the disease, both morally and monetarily with gift cards. The organization hosts a fellowship dinner on third Wednesdays at different local churches that support the partnership. I know that there is a group of people that we have affected in a very positive personal way by offering them fellowship, support and a little bit of money, Bauer said. I am always delighted when I hear someone say something positive about being accepted in the community because we have helped. The group participates in St. Pete Pride. They host HIV testing events. The downtown Dunedin restaurant group of Kellys, Chic a Boom Room Martini Bar and Blur Nightclub has named the nonprofit as its house charity, raising funds for it through 50-50 raffles during Drag Queen Bingo Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m., at Blur, 325 Main St., Dunedin. The memorialMembers of several local churches will participate in the upcoming candlelight memorial. The service in general is designed to incorporate many faiths, Bauer said. As a tradition, the names of victims of the disease will be read throughout the entire service, to represent how the HIV infection is a constant if quiet presence in the world. (It) acts as a background for the whole service, Bauer said. After a gathering prayer, the group will recite a Kaddish, a Jewish prayer for mourners. There will be responsive readings, congregational singing and performances by soloists from Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Church in Dunedin, St. Johns Episcopal Church in Clearwater and the local Jewish congregation. Rev. Temple Hayes of First Unity of St. Petersburg, and William Harper, executive director of the AIDS Service Association of Pinellas, will speak. The candlelight service will end with a tolling of the AIDS memorial bells, once for every year of the epidemic. (H)elp us recognize the disease, grieve with those who have lost loved ones and be uplifted by our message, Carol Dunn, secretary of the AIDS Partnership, wrote in a email inviting local officials to the service. The AIDS Partnership has offices at St. Lutherans Church, 407 S. Saturn Ave. in Clearwater. For more information about the organization, call 446-7718, ext. 242 or visit www.aidspartnershipinc.com.

The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated $17,500 to local organizations.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, May 15, 2014Its time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress, Monica Lewinsky, now 40, writes in a Vanity Fair essay due for digital release today. All I can say is: You go, girl. The 1998 revelation of LAffaire Lewinsky and its fallout should have made one thing clear to American women. Forget Youve come a long way, baby. When husbands cheat, the other woman usually ends up the odd man out. Bill Clintons presidency and poll ratings survived his self-serving definition of sex. Hillary Clinton had to live with her husbands betrayal, but the scandal helped boost her career from first lady who blamed a vast right-wing conspiracy to U.S. senator to presidential front-runner and then to secretary of state.Lewinskys professional life did not fare so well. In the first few years after the scandal, she gave interviews that demonstrated how clueless and reckless she had been in hooking up with the big creep. Largely silent over the past decade, that woman, Miss Lewinsky, has wised up. I look back now, she writes, and shake my head in disbelief, and wonder: what was I what were we thinking? I would do anything to go back and rewind the tape. A gals gotta make a living. Lewinsky used her name to peddle handbags and a weight-loss program. She earned a masters in social psychology at the London School of Economics, but the world wouldnt let her keep a low profile. I eventually came to realize, she writes, that traditional employment might not be an option for me. Only employers who wanted to hire her for the wrong reasons made offers. When you think of how the infamous ex-intern could have cashed in, you appreciate that over time Lewinsky became selective. Monica 2.0 is on a mission. Thanks to the Drudge Report, she writes, she was possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet. The 2010 suicide of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi, after a roommate secretly recorded and broadcast him kissing another man, spurred her to take on the modern culture of humiliation. She calls her own experience the humiliation derby. I am no stranger to that turf. During the impeachment follies, I was critical of Lewinskys decision, at age 21, to consort with the president, as well as her post-internship demands for the presidents time, attention and help in procuring jobs. But I always held Bubba as the most culpable in the group. Not so the many self-styled feminists who trashed Lewinsky, including Americas feminist first lady. Recently released archives report how the first lady told friend Diane Blair that she considered Lewinsky to be a narcissistic looney tune, while Clinton blamed herself for her husbands extramarital junket. I find her impulse to blame the Woman not only me, but herself troubling, Lewinsky writes. The sisterhood got buried in an avalanche of excuses, starting with: Boys will be boys. The pro-Clinton mantra during impeachment held that if Hillary could forgive Bubba, surely the country should, too. I never thought Hillary Clinton owed Lewinsky anything, but she did owe the voters the truth and that took a long time coming. Now with the passing of time, perhaps Hillary should come out and forgive Lewinsky, too, if only to assuage those Dems who saw Hillary Clintons forgiveness as the great indulgence, the cleaner of all slates. Its time to let Lewinsky, as Clintonistas used to say, move on. She has graduated into an elite group: people who learn from their mistakes.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.

Saunders and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate Web page at www.creators.com.For years Ive heard engineers and other smarter-than-average persons speak of something called entropy. I wanted to ask them what the word means, but I was afraid I wouldnt be able to understand their explanation. But I finally researched entropy on the Web, and here is what I learned. Entropy has several meanings. Most of them pertain to energy, heat transfer, thermodynamics and other stuff that will give you a headache if you dont own a Ph.D. in physics. But a possible corollary Ive latched onto is this: Entropy is the tendency that when left alone, without any outside interference or attention, things will descend into chaos and fall apart. Thats only my rough definition, so dont hold me to it. Now that Im pondering entropy, I begin to see it everywhere. I realize Ive been living with entropy for years in my home my kitchen, my office, my living room. About three times a year I get my condo unit in shape. I clean, vacuum, toss out junk, store books where they belong, wipe off spaghetti stains from my stove the whole assault. Exhausted, I stand there and enjoy the scene. I say to myself: Once more I have climbed out of slobbovia and have rejoined the respectable middle class. I am no longer ashamed to have visitors. But within one day, entropy has re-entered the picture. Already theres a half-filled coffee cup in the sink. Two unread magazines lie on the floor. My desk is cluttered with several bills to pay. And so on. A week later, because of my procrastination and refusal to spend 15 minutes a day cleaning up the joint, entropy is in full command. My home life is falling apart. I believe that entropy may be a major cause of our high divorce rate. On their wedding day, two persons very much in love enter the complex system known as marriage. The happy pair begin to pursue their dreams, some shared, some not. Then, as time passes, life intrudes in the form of children, careers, a mortgage or two, outside unshared hobbies and ambitions. Without the couple realizing it, entropy has come into the picture. The couples organizing principle their marriage and their feelings for one another has not received enough attention. Unless that changes, entropy may increase until the system (i.e., the marriage) will decline and fall apart. Entropy is commonly seen in food spoilage. Place a loaf of bread, a banana, a glass of milk and the remains of a roast chicken on a kitchen counter in room temperature. Come back in 10 days and see what has happened. The odors and shades of green that will greet you are the manifestations of entropy in full bloom. (Your children may wish to do this experiment for their next show-and-tell assignment at school. Or not.) One or two other examples of entropy occur to me, although they may not exactly fit the terms requirements. One is the water that covers most of this fragile globe we live on. Five thousand years ago the worlds oceans were relatively clean. The cities and humans that bordered the seacoasts had only begun to use the ocean as a dumping ground for waste matter such as sewage, garbage and destructive chemicals. Today our oceans have been transformed into cesspools, relatively speaking. With a few exceptions, efforts to save the planets ocean system have been relatively absent. Entropy has taken over.To a similar degree, the same thing has apparently happened to earths entire climate. Even after conceding that climate change would occur even if the earth were uninhabited by humans, most reputable experts have concluded that we the people of the world have managed to alter our shared climate in many ways, most of them harmful. We have divided our earthly political system into about 190 distinct independent nations. The likelihood is small that enough of these countries will combine their environmental policies to stave off the climatic catastrophes that are now predicted. But as my grandmother used to say, We live in hope, even if we die in despair. Now, theres a cheerful quote for you. To further stretch the meaning of entropy, I offer the continuing degradation of the American language. Our tongue is alive and vibrant (witness the many new words invented each year), but were also adept at getting rid of old but still useful words, phrases and linguistic attitudes, in the name of brevity, stylishness and reduced mental effort on the part of speakers and writers.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net.I have several questions for my longtime friend, ample-bodied seaman Keith R. Along with Captain Dave, Captain Bob, myself and Keith, better known as Bear, I sailed from Cape Canaveral to Green Turtle Cay in 1993. Sorry, Ive already spun a half-true yarn. We used diesel power during most of the ocean voyage to the island; there was rarely enough wind to blow a seagull feather off the boats bow. Bear has returned to Green Turtle Cay for a month stay with some friends, renting a house on the island, which is in the Abacos. In the words of a great song writer, hes Incommunicado. Couldnt reach him by cell phone. But his voicemail said he might be able to communicate via email, if he gets around to checking his messages. I emailed Bear several questions: So whats the news from Green Turtle? Is Miss Emily Blue Bees Bar still around? Do they remember you there? Do you spend your day listening to Buffett music? Might have to return there, some day. Ill be sure to bring some steaks. Stay afloat. Bear sent an email blast to friends and fellow ancient mariners, such as myself, saying Green Turtle Cay has seen some changes since his last visit about 20 years ago. The good news is Miss Emilys Blue Bee Bar, probably as much revered in the Abacos as the Biltmore is in Belleair, is still going strong. In the 1960s, Miss Emily invented a coconut concoction called the Goombay Smash, which also includes dark rum, apricot brandy, pineapple juice and orange juice. Even the most seasoned pirate wannabes know that if you drink more than two Goombay Smashes on a single visit to Miss Emilys, you will quickly fall from grace with the sea. You could even become a victim of Captains Dilemma, a series of missteps that can lead to an unintentional fall into the ocean. On my last visit to Green Turtle aboard the 36-foot sailboat Distant Fire, Captain Dave regaled the crew with an anecdote about his most embarrassing moment at sea. After dining and imbibing, I assume, at the Bluff House, Dave, sporting his dress whites, prepared to board his dinghy to return to the Distant Fire. His mistake, as best as I understood, was that he gingerly put one foot on the side of the dinghy while keeping the other foot on the dock, as the inflatable craft slowly inched away from the dock. During a moment of suspended animation, Dave was faced with the dilemma: Do I push my foot away from the dinghy or the other foot away from the dock? But by then, momentum took charge and Dave fell into the water. Prime entertainment for the natives, Im sure. Sad to say, I set the record for facing the most Captains Dilemmas on a single trip at least three, though Bear would say thats an underestimate. Hes also continuously reminding me that I forgot to bring the steaks on our 1993 trip and that I never found my sea legs. Fortunately for me, as Bear said, there were plenty of lines and other nautical devices on Distant Fire I could grab onto, minimizing the amount of times the crew called out my nickname: Somebody throw him a rope. Wasnt much of a sailor, either. When I took the steering wheel in an attempt to learn, in Captain Daves words, I kept doing penalty turns. But I learned quickly how to relax on the sailboat while at anchor at Green Turtle Cay and how to sleep on a sailbag, not an easy feat while hearing island roosters cock-a-doodle-dooing and dogs barking all night. Hooks in the bags that leave indentations on your buttocks hindered the process, too. Green Turtle Cay is about three miles long and a half-mile wide, population 450 or so. Among other changes, Bear wrote, is that Miss Emilys now serves food. Some new restaurants and some old that have closed. Lauras Kitchen is gone as is the Red Rooster, Bear wrote. Front page news, I thought, or at least worth a mention in the Coconut Telegraph. Gas is $6 a gallon. Oh-oh. How much is beer? Manjack now has two houses on the island. We tried to go to Guana but the passage was too rough for my passengers, he wrote. We went outside GTC on the ocean side and were going to snorkel the reef up from Pelican Cay. However, the numerous black fin sharks changed our minds. Good move. They probably swim faster than ample-bodied seamen. Miles of desolate beaches, turquoise seas and rustic waterfront haunts Green Turtle Cay is perfect for those enchanted by 5-oclock-somewhere ambiance. Wish we could all be here together, Bear wrote. Right you are, Bear. Not sure it would be the same, though, without the crew of the Distant Fire to retell those sea stories, revisit Miss Emilys and to share some great conch fritters. And, most importantly, to throw me a rope.Tom Germond is the executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSAm I 16 or 60?Editor: Yes, I am 60 years old. But sometimes I feel like I am 16 again. How? No, I am not getting dementia. I mean that, like many 16 year olds today, I do not have a plan for the rest of my life and just let things happen. Sixty isnt sentient (perceptive, aware). It is an acquired skill. As teenagers will soon find out, those in the sixth decade of life realize it to be an unstable time. Things havent turned out like you planned. I didnt count on being downsized twice, or filing for divorce, or having an empty nest, or getting a smaller nest egg. I never planned on having 70 sessions of transition counseling. Or how quiet being home alone really is, except for the periodic performance of the Largo Symphony (a.k.a. dueling ambulances). Now a sexagenarian, I am relearning those lessons 16 year olds learned. I have a new focus and experienced unexpected joys. Like the importance of friends, the importance of faith (no, Planned Parenthood), I was not tissue in the womb. God knew me in the womb and gave me a destiny and free will. In other words, I may not have a plan but God does. He knew there would be hills and valleys. I have learned to live authentically and just be myself. I live in a small home on a small patch of grass. I try to do my own repairs (little mechanical talent but lots of enthusiasm). I bought my first reversible drill today! I brought more than about 100 books from my previous home and am slowly rereading, donating or keeping them. I had 50 suits from my corporate life and now have 25. I am interested in part-time work involving some kind of intellectual endeavor. So my advice to searching 16 year olds would be to carefully choose friends; all you need is one or two to negotiate life. Make sure they have good character (honest, trustworthy). Study and graduate either high school or college. Having a degree did help me get better paying jobs that cushioned the family in bad times. Most importantly, ask God for direction and guidance. We were not meant to travel alone but to have fellowship on this very short trip. More time is behind me than is in front of me. Like the young people, I too feel illequipped and unsure about the future. But I too will find my way. Like youve been called Sweet Sixteen (I never knew why), I pray to find my own meaning and become a Sweet Sixty.

Everyone was outside. Even the warming waterways were studded with dolphins. During one survey, eight different groups called our waters home. The biggest group steadily assembled in behavior called Out of the Blue to reflect the tantalizing way new dolphins appear unpredictably in the midst of other dolphins. Not only is it thrilling to see more and more dolphins nearby. Out of the Blue dolphins materialize delicately as if lured hypnotically by some maritime Pied Piper. At its largest, the Out of the Blue dolphins became a nursery group with one big bull. The oldest calf, Cutlass, stayed his mom Courtneys side. Local calves do this when mom looks weary, which Courtney did. Dark circles surrounded her sleepy eyes. Courtney may be pregnant. Pregnant dolphins swim very sleepily in the spring and summer until they give birth. Boaters need to be extra alert for them. But the other three calves took full advantage of their roving playpen! Capt. John Heidemann and I worked hard to identify their wiggly bodies that darted with signature suddenness. The youngest, Jacamo, a creative spelling of the Italian word for James so that it alphabetizes with its mother J, was quickly retrieved to moms side. J is an attentive mother. She apparently decided that 2-year-old Xanion, named after a comb for really tangled hair, and Fairuz, which is turquoise in Arabic, played too roughly. At one point, mother-calf pair Valiant and Vidalia swam past the nursery group going in the opposite direction. They briefly turned as if to catch up but continued on their way. This was yet another observation where Front Slash and Valiant pointedly did not merge. The other groups included two to five dolphins. The average group is four dolphins. These pairs, trios, quartets and quintets reflected some of the other types of dolphin groups you are likely to find in the estuary. Teen bulls Juno and Fugazi briefly swam with their mothers and siblings in the nursery group. But restless with youth, their toothraked-covered bodies soon shot ahead for more fleet-footed adventures. A dolphin trio included our most memorable bull Grin trailing mom Penny and her 2-year-old Potter. Hungry, Penny searched widely while demonstrating her kerplunking hunting specialty. Kerplunking is when a dolphin strikes the water with a commanding tailslap that churns up the muddy seafloor, creating a local maelstrom that confuses or stuns fish. Pennys periodic pauses to kerplunk incited Potter to demonstrate his own cute little childish attempts at this specialized behavior. Grin did not seem to hunt as he meandered diffidently behind Penny. Neither did he seem to mind Potters excited company. The massive bulls presence energized Potter, who began leaping over the water next to Grin. This animated Grin briefly, for bull and babe once dashed over to catch a quick ride on a passing boat. Potters eager interest in Grin reminded me of other calves who reacted like this to bulls unobtrusively interested in their mother. It also reminded me of the hero worship that kid monkeys show towards the big male of their group: Like fans encasing a celebrity, a horde of small monkeys surrounds the big male should he descend to the cage floor to forage for raisins and seeds, searching when he searches, sitting when he rests. We glimpsed local bulls BB and DD2 as their quintet snoozed their way into the mysterious waters beyond our study area. DD2 (pronounced Double D Two) is one of our two local dolphins with a split dorsal fin. I am sorry to say that someone with widely spaced teeth gave DD2 a new set of rake marks. There is no free lunch at the dolphin delicatessen. The return of the dolphins is great news. But it carries the warning: There is no such thing as a free lunch. Something has gone awry in the local ecosystem that has disrupted the dolphins long-time seasonal patterns. From 2005 through 2010, the dolphin seasonal pattern was this: Dolphins were most abundant locally in the summer, slowly vacated the estuary in the fall, were the least abundant in the winter and slowly returned in the spring. From 2011 through 2013, the seasonal pattern was this: Dolphins were equally abundant in the spring and summer at lower-than-usual numbers, and were equally abundant in the fall and winter, also at lower-than-usual numbers. Dolphin Watch reported this disquieting situation in the fall of 2013. We have documented two obvious changes in local conditions. One was the disruption of the ecosystem from the record cold winter of 2009-2010. Lowered food supplies put obvious stress on any wild aniPhoto by ANN WEAVERAdult dolphins like this trio of moms return to the estuary in the spring to take it easy. It is the kids like kids of all species that are active.mal population. Locally, that includes sea birds and dolphins. The other change is the increasing number of boats anchored on the island sandbars just inside Johns Pass. These activities stress local birds that lose valuable nesting and resting grounds. These activities stress local dolphins by elevating aquatic noise levels and putting them at greater risk from more watercraft activity. These risks take place in waters that local dolphins have historically used to meet, mate and mother their young. Local boaters cannot do anything about lowered food supplies. Local boaters can clearly influence elevated noise levels and watercraft activity in the waterways that, used respectfully, ensure the continuation of local dolphins. We will continue documenting with care this year.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The action followed several meetings and presentations between Chamber business leaders and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) personnel and municipal and county officials. The plan, if approved, will provide rapid bus transit services throughout the county and eventually light rail connecting Clearwater to St. Petersburg with four of the planned rail stops in Largo/Central Pinellas. Commuters would see the expanded bus routes and services as early as 2016. Funding would be provided by a one-percent increase to the county sales tax from 7% to 8%. Transit funding now provided from property taxes would be eliminated. As with any major infrastructure initiative, there will be plenty of discussion about the referendum during the next six months. Already, dozens of forums have been held and more are planned. To learn more, visit www .voteYesonGreenlight.com To assist in helping promote the economic viability of the plan, Chamber President Tom Morrissette is a member of the Yes for Greenlight campaign along with his peers from the St. Petersburg Area and Clearwater Regional Chambers and others. If you would like to pledge your support individually or through your business, please contact Tom at tom@ CentralChamber.biz.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:GodzillaGenre: Action, adventure and science fiction Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston Director: Gareth Edwards Rated: PG-13 The worlds most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure Godzilla. From visionary new director Gareth Edwards comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance, as humanity stands defenseless.Million Dollar ArmGenre: Drama Cast: Jon Hamm, Bill Paxton, Lake Bell, Suraj Sharma, Aasif Mandvi, Madhur Mittal, Pitobash and Alan Arkin Director: Craig Gillespie Rated: PG Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things arent going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseballs next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called The Million Dollar Arm. With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku (Suraj Sharma), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.Opening this weekendGodzilla stars Watanabe, Cranston; Disney delivers Million Dollar Arm Photo by KIMBERLEY FRENCH/WARNER BROS.Bryan Cranston stars as Joe Brody in Warner Bros.

Her sixth album Can You Stand The Heat released last year was a Pick Of The Week by USA Today and featured on NPR Music. Popovic was born in Belgrade, formerly Yugoslavia, and grew up in a warm and loving family where music was very important. All throughout her youth, her father would invite friends over for nightly jam sessions. In this atmosphere, she quickly learned her fathers impressive blues and soul record collection, grabbed his guitar and started playing at the age of 15. Since then, she has developed into a phenomenal guitarist/vocalist with a growing legion of fans throughout the world.

Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, spent more than 20 weeks on Billboards Top 200 Albums chart in 2013.

The Mikado stars Patrick Ryan Sullivan as The Mikado of Japan, Larry Alexander as Pooh-Bah and Tampa Bays favorite actor/drag performer Matthew McGee as Katisha, the elderly lady. This masterpiece of silliness and satire will take audiences to a politically incorrect, fictional version of feudal Japan for an evening of tomfoolery and visual decadence. freeFalls production will be a mix of Kabuki theater, Vegas floor show and RuPauls Drag Race as a cast of nine men and a rocking band bring to life the series of sublimely ridiculous executions and weddings that make this perennial classic a must-see. The cast for The Mikado also features Dick Baker as Nanki-Poo, a Wandering Minstrel; Glenn Gover as Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner of the Town of Titipu; Emanuel Carrero, Gavin Esham and Mark Vincent Mansilungan as, respectively, Yum-Yum, Pitti-Sing and Peep-Bo, sisters and Wards of Ko-Ko.

Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Matinees will be Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for students. Call 866-1973. Regrets Only is a hilariously intelligent comedy jam-packed with witty one-liners and devilish cattiness. Mixing conservative politics and gay marriage like a well stirred martini in the swank Manhattan home of socialites Jack and Tibby McCullough is funny enough but fueling it with the fabulous fashion designer Hank Hadley ensures no one will know where the party ends up.

The Scottish actor reprises his role as Professor Charles Francis Xavier in the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, set for release May 23. On May 30, another film featuring McAvoy will open in a handful of U.S. markets, released by Magnolia Pictures. Filth, a 2013 Scottish crime drama, fulfills the implicit potential of its title, displaying a wealth of sordid depravities and wanton debauchery as it traces the moral, physical and psychological disintegration of its central character. The film places Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) under the magnifying glass. Robertson explicitly illustrated not just as a run-of-the-mill crooked cop but as a misogynistic, misanthropic sociopath with Machiavellian aspirations is up for a promotion, along with a half dozen or so others. He immediately sets out to sabotage each of his colleagues through whatever means necessary, including bedding their wives and broadcasting confidential details of their private lives. Though Robertson is shamelessly dishonorable and devious, hes equally mesmerizing, due in part to the films twisted sense of humor and its oftensurrealistic tone. Fortunately for Robertson, someone has been murdered. His boss, Chief Inspector Bob Toal (John Sessions), puts him in charge of the investigation. Robertson latches on to this undertaking as an opportunity to secure the promotion. Robertson turns out to be his own worst enemy, of course. Addicted to everything from narcotics and whisky to auto-erotic asphyxiation, all of his poorlyexecuted schemes ultimately begin to unravel. As the register of failures expands, Robertsons tenuous grip on sanity becomes increasingly obvious. His descent into madness is punctuated by unsettling hallucinations, including a dead child and a mocking psychologist (Jim Broadbent). There are obvious and intentional connections between director Jon S. Bairds adaptation of Filth and Danny Boyles film Transpotting. To begin with, both films are cinematic treatments of novels written by Scottish author Irvine Welsh. The similarities in style are striking and unambiguous. Each film boasts edgy narrators serving up existential soliloquies, garish and intense visual sequences and trippy phantasmagorias that would make the late Ken Russell queasy. But Baird tips his hat to a few other filmmakers in Filth. In the opening scenes there is an episode that clearly evokes the ultra-violence of Stanley Kubricks A Clockwork Orange. The film also features other visuals references to Kubrick. Another dreamy sequence seems to call to mind David Lynchs Blue Velvet. Bairds Filth, however, is predominantly dark and provoking. Despite the ubiquitous and subversive sleaze that oozes from Robertsons pores, the director compels the audience to view the central character as a product of past trauma. Its difficult to imagine anyone else playing Robertson. McAvoys dynamic, gonzo performance amplifies this disturbing and darkly comic drama. In the films production notes, Baird talked about casting McAvoy in the role. Ill never forget the moment I found him, Baird said. I was waiting in the lobby of a Soho hotel feeling somewhat apprehensive, because casting the perfect Bruce Robertson was proving the hardest task of all. Not that it came as any great surprise. Comedy, tragedy, violence, sex and insanity: The part demanded it all, and demanded it all in extremes. There was no hiding place for whoever landed this potentially career-defining role. Bruce was in every scene. Baird assumed that McAvoy probably had a gentle kind of upbringing. But 10 minutes into our meeting, as he started to explain his tough Glaswegian background, and why exactly he understood this character, a shiver raced up my spine, Baird said. McAvoys intelligence, humor and edge immediately put him in a league of his own, and the hunt for Bruce Robertson had come to an end. Other cast members give equally forceful performances. Broadbent is downright creepy as Dr. Rossi, Robertsons psychologist who appears more often to the detective in terrifying hallucinations than in reality. Eddie Marsan plays Clifford Blades, a wealthy member of Robertsons masonic lodge who becomes entangled in one of the detectives twisted diversions. Marsan is delightfully pathetic and docile as he staggers between blind obedience to his wife and meek submissiveness to Robertsons decadent whims.McAvoys intense performance electrifies Scottish crime drama FilthMovie review Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Photos courtesy of MAGNOLIA PICTURESJames McAvoy, above, and Imogen Poots, at right, star in Filth, a Magnolia Pictures release.Other standout performances include Imogen Poots stars as Amanda Drummond, Jamie Bell as Ray Lennox, Shirley Henderson as Bunty and Gary Lewis as Gus Bain. Filth is not a feel-good movie and its certainly not for the delicate and easily offended. Its brutally explicit rendering of gradual self-destruction is unsettling and grotesque. For those who can stomach it, Filth is thoroughly rewarding with its jarringly grim humor, its gaudy degeneracy and its cathartic morality tale. Filth is due for limited release in the United States on May 30 and will probably be screened mainly in art house cinemas and, possibly, in a few larger multiplexes. For those who would like to see the film before its official release date, Filth is now On Demand and iTunes. Call to artists for Gecko Ball creationsGULFPORT Local artists are invited to submit a proposal for the creation of a larger-than-life gecko to be auctioned during the annual Gecko Ball on Saturday, Aug. 23.

This is the fifth year that artists will be selected to create geckos to be auctioned at the Gecko Ball and the popularity of the gecko auction grows each year. Nearly 30 geckos have been created in previous years, each becoming a collectors item. A portion of proceeds from the Gecko Ball, as well as GeckoFest and the Gecko Pub Crawl is donated to local charities each year, and also funds the commission of public art projects in the Gulfport waterfront district. The theme of this years Gecko Ball is Roaring Geckos!, a 1920s motif evoking flappers, The Great Gatsby, gangsters, Guys and Dolls, and other s touchstones. Costumes are encouraged. The event will feature a dinner buffet, cash bar, live music and dancing, costume contest, silent auctions and the live auction of artistcreated geckos. Tickets for Gecko Ball go on sale a few weeks prior to the event, and it is known to sell out every year.

Ukeje and Rob David Director: Biyi Bandele Not rated Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Upon returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the revolutionary professor Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu (John Boyega) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard (Joseph Mawle), an English writer. Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements, and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their life seem to loom larger than politics. However, they become caught up in the events of the Nigerian civil war, in which the lgbo people fought an impassioned struggle to establish Biafra as an independent republic, ending in chilling violence, which shocked the entire world.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

A woman politely refused to accept a head of cauliflower, a prize she won at Carettas Restaurant booth during Taste Fest May 9 on Clearwater Beach. Thats wrong, Jordan said. But there were several other more appetizing prizes given away at the both and dozens of people enjoyed cauliflower emulsion dishes and laughed at the chance to win a head of cauliflower. Round and round she goes and where she stops nobody knows on the wheel of cauliflower, said Sand Pearl Food and Beverage Director Jonathan Pelletier, as he spun the wheel. Attendees at Taste Fest swarmed the booths, entering drawings and sampling everything from chilled duck breast to buffalo wings while drinking fine wines and craft beer. Its great; its wonderful. A nice taste of it all, said Jean Crider of Southgate, Michigan, who is staying with her son and daughter in Clearwater. Crider was hard pressed to say what her favorite food sample was at Taste Fest. There hasnt been anything Ive been disappointed in. I couldnt even pinpoint it. Because everything Ive tasted I keep saying thats the best. She said if shes in the area again, shell come back to the event. Taste Fest, which also featured fireworks, is part of the Fifth Annual Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week May 12-18. Its a fabulous night. We couldnt be happier, said Darlene Kole, president of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce. The chamber has been planning for Tast Fest for six months. We have 27 restaurants, tons of sponsors and vendors. Awesome crowd. The weather is perfect, she said. And you can win a head of cauliflower. An attendee at Taste Fest spins the wheel of cauliflower operated by Jonathan Pelletier, Sand Pearl Resort food and beverage director, right.

TORRESLARGO Agreeing that the recession had slowed down the process, Largo commissioners directed city staff May 13 to begin a new marketing campaign targeting the 753 businesses outside the community districts who still use soon-to-be-banned pole signs. The Refine the Sign campaign will feature a new logo and a slogan, Largo businesses making a monumental change. Including notices about the 2017 deadline in annual business tax receipt packets have prompted only 125 businesses to build the ground-hugging, monument-style signs that the city would like to see along its major roads, in lieu of tall pole signs. The new sign standards are making a real difference in the appearance of our corridors, said Community Development Director Carol Stricklin. But the standards were changed in 2007, before the recession financially crippled many businesses and made it difficult for them to afford the new signs, which have cost companies who have complied as much as $12,000. So the commission was unanimous in asking staff to extend the 10-year amortization period two more years, requiring compliance by 2019. Mayor Pat Gerard remained adamant in her request that the city find funding to increase the incentive the city offers, currently only $200, not enough to to motivate anybody to do anything, she said. Gerard also asked for the staff to reconsider how signs along the U.S. 19 corridor are handled. Currently, the ordinance allows for taller signs where the roadway is elevated. However, given that the traffic of the whole highway is to be moved to an overpass in coming years, new consideration for the corridor was merited, she said. Look for thewho wins.

For the story, see page 4A.County OKs deal with interim leader By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County government is saving about 20 percent in salary costs while an interim administrator continues at the helm. Commissioners unanimously approved a compensation agreement with Mark Woodard during its May 6 meeting. Woodard will receive an annual salary of $199,500, which is 20 percent less than former administrator Bob LaSala received. LaSala was terminated April 15 and is spending his last 90 days of employment on assignment at St. Petersburg College. Woodard, who was formerly an assistant county administrator and LaSalas chief of staff, will serve at-will and receive the same benefits as other county employees, per his request. Commissioner Ken Welch thanked Woodard for agreeing to the proposed compensation and for not asking for additional benefits. Commissioners then turned their attention to the upcoming search for a new administrator. Before they began Dick Kane, founder of SpotOn!, spoke on behalf of what he described as a silent majority of gray beards, asking that the commission consider those capable gray beards here in Pinellas County, as they begin their search. He said many gray beards male and female lived in the county with experience leading large corporations. He said the very skilled people know how to work with boards and do many of the duties that would be required of a county administrator even though they had not worked for government. More importantly, they are familiar with Pinellas County and invested in its future. There are great leaders and executives that have lived here for decades, he said. We are here. Human Resources Director Peggy Rowe then answered questions about the process should the commission decide to use in-house staff to look for a new administrator versus an outside consultant. Were certainly well equipped to do it. We have the capacity to do that, she said. Rowe said her staff would advertise the position in all appropriate publications. The tentative timetable would be to develop a profile that includes the desirable criteria for an administrator during May, followed by announcing the job during June and July. Rowe said rsums would probably be Photo courtesy of BOBBY LABRANTBobbi LaBrant, 17, vaults at 10 feet during Calvary Invitational at Calvary Christian High School March 7. By JULIANA A.

Bobbi and Jennifer picked up pole vaulting in seventh and sixth grade, respectively from Jennifers older siblings. Jonathan Kistemaker, five years Jennifers senior, was the first to express an interest in learning to vault, when he attended Keswick Christian School seven years ago.

That is, until family caregivers consider the value of the time and financial sacrifices made to care for a loved one. If you are a family caregiver, you know all too well that the responsibility requires a considerable amount of your time time and attention your loved one deserves. As a caregiver, you are on call day and night. You coordinate transportation to and from medical appointments, grocery shopping and other errands. You have another home to clean. You are the one who helps pay bills, provides companionship for your loved one and takes care of other tasks as needed. This is often in addition to holding down a job and caring for your immediate family. When you work with a reputable in-home care agency, such as Comfort Keepers, you will still be in charge of the care your loved one receives. You just will not be responsible for the time-consuming, day-to-day care giving responsibilities. In addition to peace of mind, our in-home care delivers a wide range of services, working with seniors and their families to create care plans that meet their specific needs. These individual care plans allow seniors the opportunity to age in place, safely and securely. Our services provide support to help preserve seniors' dignity and independence as well. Comfort Keepers requires a two-hour minimum visit and we base our services around your loved ones needs. It may be meal prep, light housekeeping, a bath visit or it may be both. We create a plan of care that can be affordable and at the same time, specific needs are met on a weekly basis. The greatest benefit to hiring a caregiver from an organization that employs its caregivers is the oversight provided and convenience for everyone involved. Details are not your responsibility. The biggest distinction with Comfort Keepers is: We employ the caregiver, and clients are not burdened with employer laws and requirements. Our employees undergo rigorous background checks, interviews and reference validations. Our caregivers are covered by workers' compensation, general liability and bonding insurance. A large roster of caregivers can "step in" in the event the regular caregiver is unavailable. Ongoing Client Advocate visits are in place to assure a trusting bond between client and caregiver. More seniors prefer to stay in their own home, enjoying cherished memories and maintaining a level of privacy and independence.

TORRESLARGO After two years of working to bring them about, the city of Largo now has four incentives designed to attract development in the West Bay Community Redevelopment District, and businesses are ready to use them. Even before the new resolutions passed May 6, some businesses were champing at the bit to use the incentives, said Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon. Word is getting out there that Largo is considering these, and people are calling us excited, she told Largo commissioners, who acted as the Community Redevelopment Board to pass the four incentives. Specifically, investors are interested in buying two of the parcels the city owns within the West Bay Community Redevelopment District. First, the city is completing the terms of an agreement with Urban Edge Development Group, based in Tampa, for the purchase of site A at 158 Ridge Road, Brydon said. The property would be developed into a small, high-end apartment complex. Brydon said the city was evaluating whether the project would qualify for a housing infill program, one of the four programs passed May 6. That incentive is designed to bring high quality urban housing to the district. For rental units that qualify, the developer could receive a grant of $3,000 for each unit, or 5 percent of actual hard construction and land costs, whichever is higher, up to $8,000 per unit, according to city documentation. The second property, site B, is the 500 block of West Bay Drive. The city has been talking to a potential developer about that location for the past six months or so, Brydon said. Though Brydon couldnt disclose many details still being negotiated, the property would turn into mixed-use project, with housing, retail and office elements. That particular block is one that can be mixed-use, she said. For that potential project, the third incentive program might be applicable. The real estate development incentive is designed to create multi-story offices with street frontages and active ground floor use, according to the new resolution. The developers certainly have been calculating the potential incentive as they considered developing in Largo, Brydon said. Theyve been aware. They too will look at tapping into it, she explained. After sites A and B sell, the city will look at how to market its parcels, which include old Largo Community Center property on Fourth Street Northwest, just a block north from West Bay Drive. The most contentious program giving businesses grants based on the number of jobs created might come into play as new owners of the office tower at 801 W. Bay Drive look to fill the building with new tenants. The company asked for a copy of the new first incentive resolution for that reason, Brydon said. We expect thats going to help them go in and do upgrades to that structure. Were really excited about that, she said. The final incentive provides a grant for businesses to convert their pole signs to monument ones, as will be required starting in 2017. Largo commissioners amended the resolution to allow businesses to claim $1,000 instead of the $200 currently offered to businesses outside of the district. Brydon said the city would be working on a marketing campaign to commercial real estate and infill housing brokers, so that everybody knows that were looking for new development, and we want to be able to do well at increasing the viability of downtown.City to pursue tax financing for Clearwater-Largo RoadNow that the incentives are approved, the city will turn its attention to its other community redevelopment district, that around Clearwater-Largo Road. Staff asked the commission to weigh in on pursuing tax increment financing for the district. Such financing would mean that the additional revenue produced from increased property value would be set aside to underwrite special projects or programs within the district. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin pointed out that, if approved, this financing included county tax revenue as well. Staff also wanted to expand the district to reflect the North Greenwood boundaries of Pinellas Countys Health Communities Initiative. The commission agreed with the expanded direction for the district. The city will seek approval from the Pinellas County Board of Commissioners for the change and conduct a study to determine the necessity of the district. The whole process could take 18 to 24 months.

4A Largo Leader, May 15, 2014New residents move into Pinellas Heights By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Air Force veteran Nathan B. Robinson had his one-bedroom apartment in Pinellas Heights looking like a model showroom in eight days. He moved into the fourth floor of the brand new affordable senior housing complex April 23 and unpacked quickly, helping his neighbors get settled in the process. Every little lady in here thats been here two weeks three weeks I had something to do with, trying to help them open boxes, taking boxes away, he said as he leaned in the entryway of his new abode, decorated with an assortment of potted palms and floral prints. Pinellas Heights resident Mary Manier and Vena Searcy, soon to be moved in, admired the interior design of the rooms. All three had attended the ribbon cutting ceremony earlier in the morning on May 9 and were excited to be a part of the contingent of senior residents moving into the fully-leased, 153-unit property. I have seen many housing projects, but I have never seen anything like this, Robinson said. To see every piece of material that they have in here this is well thought out, well thought out. Fine tuning. Manier, who moved in the same day Robinson did, said that she would come by the property and take pictures of the construction, ever since she moved back to the county in November to await its opening. She was pleased with the results. Oh, its a resort, I tell my son and everyone else, she said. Its worth the wait. Pinellas Heights, at 11411 Ulmerton Road in Largo, is a project of the Pinellas County Housing Authority, headquartered next door. The authoritys objective was to provide affordable senior housing. Twentyone of the units are leased 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. But the fact that it was low-income housing didnt stop the various partners from designing a high quality property, one that will live beyond your lifetimes, said Ed Jennings Jr., region IV administrator for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Thats the kind of vision we should have. We should be building properties like this, not for the poor people, not for the people on limited income, (but) places I would live in. That should be the standard for all of us, he said. These kinds of places are becoming more important. Jennings, who originally hails from Tampa, said he was pleased to make the visit in Florida, not only to be home, but also to praise the efforts of a well-run housing authority that spends public funds wisely with the objective of creating community. Many of the speakers heralded the organizations efficiency and called Pinellas Heights a shining example of how private-public partnerships work. Dave Urban, representing a private partner, RBC Capital Markets, said the project turned out so well the company was using pictures of it in one of their ads. Largo Mayor Pat Gerard called the housing authoritys executive director, Debra Johnson, a superstar. Ive been driving by this thing every day for a year and a half, watching it come out of ground like a dream, she said. Were proud to be a partner, and I cant wait to see what she has next. Johnson said she closed the housing authoritys offices so that her staff, arrayed behind her as she spoke, could attend the ceremony. This is a big deal for us, she said. To conclude her remarks, she introduced Robinson, who not long ago was living in Homeless Emergency Project transitional housing. When she visited Pinellas Heights the other day, he was already holding a barbeque out back, she said. This is what its all about, she added. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, about a third of the residents were moved in. But Robinson was determined to help the rest. He had already organized a group of other fourth floor residents for the task. We are ready to help and assist and whatever, he said. Even once you get your place, move your things in, youre still gonna need to put up pictures and different things. We volunteer to do that for you too. We do all that. Thats the fourth floor. He stood on his new balcony overlooking the main entrance of Pinellas Heights, a view he specifically chose. As a former undercover investigator for eventual U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, he intended on helping maintain security for the building, he said. He promised to help Searcy move in, as she bade him farewell and commented that she was glad he liked his new place. But he corrected her. I love it, he said. I dont like nothing. I love this.

She estimated that someone could be hired as early as October. She said if an outside consultant were used, it would cost between $30,000 and $35,000 and delay the process by 30 to 35 days, as time would be needed to negotiate a contract with a consultant. The majority of commissioners supported using Rowe and her staff. Commissioner Susan Latvala said Human Resources had proved its capabilities during a recent search for the head of Business Technology Services. I was pleased with the BTS process after we got rid of the consultant, she said. Welch pointed out that with the exception of LaSala, candidates provided by a consultant during the last search for an administrator were weak. He concurred with Latvala that Rowes staff did a good job with the BTS search. However, Commissioner John Morroni worried about the perception of using in-house staff. The last two times weve used a consultant, he said. He is concerned that using in-house resources would result in a gray cloud hanging over the process. I prefer going out, he said. Commissioner Norm Roche said he had been inclined to stay inside with the search but had since changed his mind, favoring the use of an outside consultant. Ive not seen value added by hiring a consultant, Welch said. Commissioner Janet Long said she was very confident that Rowe and her staff could do the job. Commissioner Charlie Justice said while he was concerned that there could be some perception of an inside game sort of thing, he still believed the best course was to use Rowe and her team. Im very concerned about the perception to our employees, Morroni said. Commission Chair Karen Seel said the county had used a consultant for about four candidate searches. Ive been disappointed every time, she said. In the end, the commission voted 5-2 to use inhouse resources for the search. Morroni and Roche voted no. The next step will be a meeting to discuss the criteria to be used to create the job profile, as well as the process for screening rsums and applicants. Rowe said her staff would talk to references given by the candidates as well as former employers and people they had worked with to come up with a list of pros and cons for each candidate the same as would be done by a consultant. Seel pointed out that Rowes department did not work for the Board of County Commissioners, but was an entity of the Unified Personnel System, which reports to 11 independent boards. Commissioners also agreed to act as ambassadors when attending meetings, such as the Florida Association of Counties, to spread the word about the job search. Rowe said her staff would begin work on a list of potential characteristics to include with the job profile criteria. County Attorney Jim Bennett told commissioners that the Sunshine Law would take effect as soon as rsums were received regardless of whether they were sent to a consultant or to the countys Human Resources department. Anything we send and anything provided to them would be public record, he said. DEAL, from page 1A Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERHuman Resources Director Peggy Rowe explains the process for searching for a new county administrator during a May 6 commission meeting.The commission also talked about allowing businesses to negotiate for flexibility for the converted signs. Bigger plazas with multiple stores, like the Largo Mall and Tri-City Plaza, should be given more leeway, said Commissioner Curtis Holmes. I think you need to put a little bit of wiggle room on this, he said. Stricklin said a process could be put in place to allow requested leniencies to be negotiated with staff and reviewed by the citys Planning Review Board. When the city of Clearwater enacted stricter sign standards in 1988, a similar process allowed businesses to negotiate for more square footage on their sign than was permitted by ordinance. I would like to look at flexibilities for all of them, not ultimate flexibility, but some more than what we have now, Gerard said. Commissioner Harriet Crozier asked why the proposed marketing campaign was being launched so late, with only three years left before the original deadline. The results have not been great, Stricklin said. Thats really why were here is because the commission has told us we havent gotten the word out adequately. So this represents a different level of effort of that marketing. Brown suggested that any increased incentive the city did enact should be offered only until the end of the original deadline in 2017, giving an incentive for businesses to comply by then. He didnt agree that businesses werent making the transition due to a lack of knowledge about the changes. Theyre not going to do it until we make them do it, he said. The commission agreed May 6 to give the businesses in the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District a $1,000 grant to help with the costs of converting pole signs. Brown said he planned to visit businesses in the district, where his own chiropractic practice is based, and explain the incentive, finally at an amount Im not embarrassed to go in and tell them about. He also asked the commission to consider doing away with an ordinance that allows temporary feather signs to be placed outside of businesses for 45 days. The city doesnt have the staff to enforce the time limit, and he said he knew most businesses kept the waving flags up until they fell down. I dont hear anything except how lousy they look, he said. SIGN, from page 1A VAULTING, from page 1Acoaches, which included assisting David Mason of the 727 Youth Track and Field Club. Ive learned by watching and asking, she said. And my kids have taught me along the way, as we struggled to figure how to do certain things, (and) weve been able to implement them. Bobby LaBrant, who has coached track at Indian Rocks for 17 years, wont touch vaulting with a 10foot, or any size, pole. So when Jennifer began training with the team at Osceola High, he was in a bit of a predicament. He begged Joyce to stay, he said; having her as a vault coach has been a good fit. He personally cannot handle the stress of watching his own daughter fly 10 feet into the air. I had to remove myself from the field, he said. A month ago, (I said), Im leaving. I dont want to be here. Its all you, and Im just a parent way far away. Joyce said she can understand. Its extremely a technical sport with dangerous elements anywhere in the process. As a parent looking in, theres that fear, she said. She and Bobbi have built a trusting relationship that allows Joyce to push her to try a bigger pole or a different technique with no hesitation. But she is pleased to leave Jennifers training to Mason, recognizing that its healthy for parents to step back. I have never had trouble coaching Jen except for now when shes injured. That to me was the most difficult thing, she said. Jennifer tore her ACL practicing her second-best track event, hurdles. She was medically cleared to compete the day before districts, but hadnt practiced for two weeks and wasnt sure if she could vault, much less how she would do. That was a whole new aspect of it. I was ranked to win states by a foot. Just going through all the motions of districts, regionals and then finally getting the states, I didnt know how I would do. I just trusted the Lord to be able to do my best, she said. Her personal best was a height of 12 feet. At districts, she jumped 9 feet 6 inches with a really short approach and a little pole, she said. She won regionals with an 11-foot jump. She didnt make her best at states, but was content with second place, she said. In the end, she did amazing with the injury, Joyce said. Bobbi went into states in the top three, with a personal best of 10 feet 6 inches. It was rainy and wet at the University of North Florida campus, dismal conditions for anyone to do well. Bobbi said she didnt think she could take first. I was prepared to do my best, but when the other girls didnt perform like they were supposed to, I dont know, it gave me a lot of confidence after that, she said. Bobbi had a clear head (and) determination. She was very focused, Joyce added. Vaulting doesnt make her too nervous, Bobbi said, but she was glad to have the event finished in order to focus on the 800-meter run, where she placed sixth, and the 4x400-meter relay. Indian Rocks Christian has the fastest time for that relay of any division in the county, Bobby said. The team placed sixth at states. Though her height of 5 feet 2 inches is a disadvantage at pole vault, Bobbi is the faster of the two girls. One of the key elements of vaulting is your run. You have to be fast. The faster you are, the better you are at vaulting. And she brings a lot of speed to the table, Joyce said. Bobbi also runs cross-country and plays soccer. Though she loves vaulting, she said she cant focus on one thing. She only vaults during the two months of track season. Jennifer has pursued vaulting more ardently. She plays volleyball, but makes sure she can train at pole vault during the summer track club season. I love it. Its taught me so much, physically, mentally and emotionally, she said. I couldnt imagine my life without it. Its going to be tough these next couple of months without it, after surgery. Surgery on her ACL was May 12. Jennifer said shes hoping to be recovered by the start of the new school year, her last year competing at the highschool level. She hopes to be able to vault in college. Thats the dream, she said. Bobbi said she knew she wanted to run in college, but hadnt considered vaulting until she took first at state. Her personal best is tied for the Indian Rocks Christian School record with Jennifers older sister, Rachel. Joyce said she doesnt doubt Bobbi will jump higher. Besides, Bobbis up-and-coming competition is her younger brother, who is just learning to vault. You just need to get the bar up as high as you can before you leave, Joyce cautioned her. Whats exciting is we have two potential state champions this year again. Thats really fun. Another Indian Rocks Christian competitor also has potential at vault. Joyce has been working with sophomore Joshua Sackett for the last two years. He came in eighth at state with a jump of 11 feet 6 inches. The friendship between the two girls, soon to be seniors, helps push them forward. Jennifer attends Bobbis meets and sometimes comes to her practice. Theyre both just great girls, Bobby said. We have one more year with them.

TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners gave staff the goahead May 13 to pursue contracting a company that would build a tree adventure course behind the Highland Recreation Complex. The course would include a zipline over the lake to the northeast, along Lake Avenue, and back to the large group of trees directly north of the newly renovated complex. It could include a plethora of different climbing challenges, with ropes, nets, ladders or suspended platforms, at different levels of difficulty. Participants would stay hooked to an overhead cable at all times, ensuring safety should they stumble while climbing through the canopy of the trees. The activities and various structural elements would blend into the trees and not affect the walking path underneath it, said parks superintendent Greg Brown. Currently, tree zipline courses are a growing industry, but are not offered anywhere else in Pinellas County. The closest zipline course is a steel one at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, with a course recently constructed in Sarasota. Commissioner Woody Brown asked why no one else in the area had tried such a concept. Lack of imagination. I think Largo has long been on the cutting edge of recreation activities, Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne said. I think this is a very popular activity. Its always nice to be first. The city will request bids from companies interested in putting up the costs to build and maintain the course as well as protect the trees. The winning company would run the course with its own staff, potentially out of a small building designed to store equipment and help customers sign up and go through a mandatory training to participate. The city would receive a percentage of the revenues. At least two companies are interested in building an adventure course, specifically at Highland, Greg Brown said. The commissioners had many questions about safety and logistics, much of which will have to be worked out in the contract process, but they enthusiastically supported the idea.

Exp. 6/7/14 051514 Man sentenced, declared sexual predator By JULIANA A. TORRES LARGO A 38-year-old Tampa man, already registered as a sexual offender, was sentenced to seven years in prison May 6 in a case involving a 14-year-old Largo girl he met online and planned to have sex with, according to Largo police. Thornell Thomas pleaded guilty to charges of traveling to meet a minor, seduction of a child using the Internet or an electronic device and failing to register an email or instant message name as a sexual offender, according to Pinellas County court records. As part of his sentence, he also was declared a sexual predator. The case began Aug. 14, 2013, when the aunt of the 14-year-old girl reported a suspicious person parked in front of her home on Sherwood Drive. The aunt told Largo police that she suspected it was an adult man who met her niece online. Responding officers identified the man as Thomas and realized that he was a sexual offender on probation. Thomas told the officers that he was waiting to buy stereo speakers from somebody from Craigslist, police reported. Detective Nathan Dix interviewed the girl, who told him that she met the person on a mobile chat messenger application about a month before and arranged to meet and have sex in his vehicle. The girl was trying to leave her home to meet Thomas when her aunt grew suspicious. Dix spoke to Thomas, who initially lied, but eventually admitted to being there to meet the victim. He denied knowing that the victim was 14 years old. Forensic reviews of both the victims and Thomas cellphones, as well as a laptop computer found in Thomas vehicle at the time, proved their online relationship and provided probable cause to arrest Thomas. Earlier this year, Thomas pleaded guilty to three counts of violation of probation and was sentenced to five years in the Florida Department of Corrections. His latest sentence concludes the case. In a city email, Police Chief Jeff Undestad commended the detectives involved, adding that the case could have ended up much differently. Instead, a sexual offender earned the status of predator (and) is off our streets, he wrote.Hospice employee arrested for theftLARGO An employee of Suncoast Hospice was arrested May 5 for forging time sheets resulting in $44,883 of over payments, according to Largo police. Marlana Lewis, 27, of St. Petersburg was charged with grand theft and scheme to defraud, both felonies. She was fired March 25 from the Largo hospice at 5771 Roosevelt Blvd., where she was employed as a home-based certified nursing assistant. The hospice administrative staff called police April 1 to report their suspicions of Lewis, police said. She had forged the signature of a managing employee, they told police. When they confronted her, she admitted to turning in falsified time sheets, according to reports. Detective Lara Young took on the investigation, determining that Lewis had forged 139 time sheets over three years. Lewis was arrested and booked into Pinellas County Jail. Thornell Thomas Marlana LewisBank robber in custodyPINELLAS PARK A 22-yearold transient used a bomb threat to get tellers at a bank in Pinellas Park to hand over an undisclosed amount of cash just before 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 9. Pinellas Park police reported that a male suspect went to Grow Financial, 6900 Park Blvd., and set a bag on the counter and told the teller that the bag contained a bomb and then demanded money. The teller gave money to the man and he fled on foot, leaving the bag behind. Pinellas Park police, along with Tampa polices bomb squad and K-9 units, responded. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office provided support from the air. Nearby businesses were evacuated. Tampa PDs bomb squad retrieved the bag and took the device to an isolated area of the bank property. The bomb turned out to be an alarm clock with a television antenna. Meanwhile, K-9 officer G.D. Weaver and his K-9 partner Tank trailed the suspect and caught him a short distance from the bank, according to the police report. Carmine James Macedonio, formerly of New Port Richey, was taken into custody about 5:45 p.m. The money was recovered. Police reported that Macedonio received puncture wounds and lacerations on his legs when he was taken down by Tank after resisting arrest. The FBI also responded and interviewed Macedonio on possible federal charges. Macedonio was booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 4:06 a.m. May 10. He was charged with resisting arrest without violence, deprive officer of means of communication, robbery with a deadly weapon or firearm and possession of a hoax bomb. Bond for the charges related to the robbery totaled $70,150. He is being held without bond on four charges from Pasco County, including violation of parole trafficking in stolen property, violation of parole scheme to defraud and burglary.73-year-old drowns at Fort De Soto ParkTIERRA VERDE A 73-yearold man from Colombia visiting Fort De Soto Park with his family was pulled from the water near the pier Saturday afternoon and later died. Pinellas County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to the park at 3500 Pinellas Bayway South in St. Petersburg about 3:17 p.m. May 10. According to deputies, Jaime Suarez was in the water when family members noticed he was unresponsive. Bystanders assisted in pulling Suarez from the water, began CPR and called 911. Suarez was transported to a local hospital via ambulance were he later died.

Thurs. Eve. & Fri.-Sat.-Sun. All Day. 051514 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners agreed to changes in the Tourist Development Plan May 6 that clears the way for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to apply for a portion of bed tax distributions. Clearwater voters approved a referendum Nov. 5, 2013, supporting Clearwater Marine Aquariums plans to build a new $160 million aquarium where City Hall currently stands. CMA plans to pay the city $7.5 million for construction of a new city hall, and it will pay to demolish the current city hall and build the new aquarium. The city will retain ownership of the land and grant a 60-year lease to the CMA to operate the aquarium. The state Legislature approved $2 million in funding for the aquarium in the 2014 budget, which still must be approved by Gov. Rick Scott. To get money from Pinellas Countys Tourist Development (bed) Tax proceeds, the countys plan had to be amended, which commissioners did May 6. Now CMA can apply for funds the same as other facilities, such as sports stadiums, covered by the plan. Another plan amendment increases the maximum amount of available annual funding from $1 million to $4.5 million, or 3/4s of 1 percent of the bed tax, whichever is greater. The amount a facility must provide was changed from a $2 to $1 match to a $1 to $1 match, and the annual cap of $500,000 a year per facility was removed. The commission also approved new capital funding guidelines agreed on by the commission and the Tourist Development Council during an April 1 meeting. Commission Chair Karen Seel said she wanted to make sure the guidelines allowed for funding multiple projects, not just one. She responded to Commissioner Charlie Justices question about flexibility by saying that anything could be funded as long as it fit within the state statutes. The TDC plan specifies the allowable uses. Facilities that are granted bed tax funding now will be reimbursed after the completion of projects, something that should not affect their ability to bond, said Michael Zas, senior assistant county attorney. He said reimbursements versus paying lump sums would allow projects to set construction milestones. The aquarium isnt the only facility in line for bed tax money. In addition, commissioners have expressed concern to allocate more for beach nourishment due to shrinking pots of money from the federal and state governments. Pinellas County collects a 5 percent Tourist Development Tax on all overnight tourism accommodations in the county, which is levied on customers of hotels, motels, condominiums, campgrounds, apartments and private homes that rent accommodations for less than six months. In other business, the commission: Approved a two-year contract with NDL LLC of Lutz for landscape maintenance services, including mowing, for $1.78 million. Pricing, terms and conditions are based on an existing contract with Pasco County. Approved a resolution approving Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas Countys plans to finance a multifamily residential housing project through bonds in a principal amount not to exceed $5 million. Two sites located in Clearwater are included in the project. The first is at 1000 North Keene Road and the second is at 2657 State Road 590.Aquariums now eligible for bed tax fundsLARGO Detectives with Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Narcotics Division arrested 10 suspects for sale and distribution of synthetic cannabinoids after a year-old multi-jurisdictional investigation. All 10 were arrested in Pinellas County. According to the sheriffs report, the suspects were manufacturing and packaging the synthetic cannabinoids in four locations throughout Pinellas County and distributing the product to at least four local convenient stores. They also were shipping it to locations in eight states, including Nevada, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and New Hampshire. The suspects were arrested between April 7 and April 8. The investigation began in June of 2013. The joint investigation between the Sheriffs Office, federal Drug Enforcement Administration and The Office of Statewide Prosecution began after a tip came in that Shamir Sultanali Nathani, 32, of Holiday was actively distributing synthetic cannabinoids in the Tampa Bay area and throughout the United States. Nathanis product was sold to an undercover operative in September, which tested positive for the substance AM2201. Subsequent seized packages tested positive for the substances UR144 and XLR11. These three substances are illegal under Florida law. Detectives were then led to a second suspect that Nathani was working for, who was identified as Pyarali Shamsuddin Heerani, 48, of Tampa. The investigation continued and through various investigative techniques, eight other suspects were identified to be working under Heerani and Nathani. These eight suspects were involved in the manufacturing and distributing of synthetic cannabinoids in four different locations, which inPhoto courtesy of PCSOBooking photos of those arrested during Operation Spice King are pinned to a map showing the manufacturing location (Pinellas County) and distribution locations in nine states, including Florida.cluded two public storage facilities and two private residences. Detectives said once the product was manufactured the suspects then distributed the product throughout Florida, including at least four local convenient stores and also shipped to eight different states to include Nevada, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and New Hampshire. According to detectives, the suspects shipped approximately 1,000 parcels from 2011 to 2014 via UPS. 67 kilos of finished product were seized during the investigation. For people who continue to sell this poison, they need to stop. Theyre hurting the kids as they selfishly try to get rich quick. The only thing they are going to get themselves is a quick trip to jail, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri during a May 6 press conference. They need to think who they are selling this to and if this was their son, their daughter, their brother, their sister whos smoking this stuff. It is adversely affecting our community, its making people violent, it has delusional qualities to it, it is not marijuana, it doesnt mellow people out and it really is a problem. The suspects were charged with the following. Pyarali Shamsuddin Heerani One count of conspiracy to distribute synthetic cannabinoids. Heerani remains a fugitive on RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) charges.

POLICE, from page 5Atrack about 7:08 p.m. May 6. Pinellas Park Fire Department paramedics offered aid to both, but one died. Dale J. Boorman was pronounced dead at 7:11 p.m. Boormans father was at the track and he was notified that his son had died. The second person involved, Matthew Gardner, 23, of Lakeland did not suffer serious injuries. A preliminary investigation revealed that Boorman had been riding his motorbike north along the inside of the track. Gardner was riding south along the outside edge when he entered a jump just prior to a turn in the track. As Gardner went airborne, he entered Boormans lane of travel and his motorbike struck Boorman in the head and upper body. This case is being handled by the Pinellas County Medical Examiners office and is classified by the Pinellas Park police as an accidental death.80-year-old arrested for abusePINELLAS PARK An 80-year-old woman was charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment as the result of a May 9 investigation by Pinellas County Animal Services and Pinellas Park police. Pinellas Park PD announced Friday afternoon that they were on scene with Animal Services staff at a home on 102nd Terrace North after receiving reports that dogs and cats living there were malnourished and not receiving proper care. At that time, police reported that six cats and three dogs had been removed from the residence. Photo courtesy of PINELLAS PARK PDOne of three dogs removed from a home in Pinellas Park is loaded into an Animal Services vehicle May 9.The dogs appear to be malnourished due to their weight and overall appearance, the report said. There are more animals still in the home that animal control believes are in the walls or the ceiling, the police report said. It is believed that there may be animals buried in the backyard of the home. This has yet to be confirmed. About three hours later, Pinellas Park PD reported that Edna Carr would be charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment. Florida Statute defines abandon as to forsake an animal entirely or to neglect or refuse to provide or perform the legal obligations for care and support of an animal by its owner. By law, animal owners must provide sufficient food, water and exercise.Five arrested on narcotics chargesPINELLAS PARK Five were arrested Friday, May 9, and one remains at large, after Pinellas Park police served three search warrants on three different targets of narcotics-related investigations. In addition to drugs and a firearm, narcotics officers seized several thousand dollars found during the search. Ashlee Brown, 26, was arrested at her home on 43rd Street North for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of cocaine with intent to sale. Police said she had a little less than a pound of marijuana and about one pound of crack and powder cocaine. She also was arrested for renting property for the purpose of distributing narcotics, which is a first-degree felony due to her having two minors (under age 5) in the home. Percell Haynes Sr., 52, was arrested at his apartment on 76th Avenue for sales and delivery of cocaine. Tofaya Perry, 38, was arrested at a neighboring apartment on 76th Avenue for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of MDMA (ecstasy). Police said she had about a half pound of marijuana. She also was arrested for renting property for the purpose of distributing narcotics. Michael Rome Williams, 42, was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of MDMA. Antonio S. Levy, 38, was arrested for felon in possession of a firearm, armed trafficking of hyrdrocodone and possession of marijuana. George Haynes, 30, remains at large. He is wanted for trafficking and sale of heroin. This operation was successful due to the joint effort of our narcotics and criminal investigations detectives, as well as members of patrol operations and the Community Policing Redevelopment Policing Unit, according to a statement from Pinellas Park Police Department.

Florida Botanical Gardens honors ScaffidiLARGO Former Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation president Chuck Scaffidi had a new water statue dedicated to him at the May 4 Diggin the Arts Festival. The Diggin the Arts Festival at the Florida Botanical Gardens celebrated all things art with artists, vendors and art-lovers filling the winding and natural trails of the Gardens. The new statue, which was built by local artists Owen Pach and Jonathan Schork, is located outside of the wedding garden area. It stems from an idea proposed by Scaffidi more than two years ago. The sculpture has yet to be named. A contest to give it a new name ended May 9. In addition to the sculpture, artists had the opportunity to compete in the Plein air painting contest, which had artists painting plants in different areas of the gardens during the show. Lawrence Pumprey took home $200 as the best of the show. Vivek Lakhotia won first place and $150, and Judy Pumprey got $100 and second place. Charles Gray and Jane Lawson both received an honorable mention with a $50 gift certificate and a one year membership to the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation. Rounding out the event were an instrument petting zoo provided by the Florida Orchestra, a drawing for a uniquely painted rain barrel, classes on a variety of topics and vendors selling plant and art related items. The Florida Botanical Gardens is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo, with an alternate entrance at 12211 Walsingham Road. The gardens remain open from 7 a.m. until dusk every day, with free admission during daylight hours. For more information, visit www.flbg.org or call 727-582-2100.

Exp. 6/30/14 How Dropbox and Evernote are great tools for the genealogistIve been using two programs lately that have made my multicomputer life measurably easier, especially when it comes to doing genealogy research and keeping track of my collected information they are Dropbox (www.drop box.com) and Evernote (www.ev ernote.com). Both of these programs could be put in the realm of cloud computing. Think of cloud computing as the use of the Internet for storage or processing functions ... those actions that normally we would totally perform on our personal computers. Both of the programs are most useful if you have multiple computers and portable devices (like tablets or smart phones) on which you save some of the same Information, and which you want to keep synchronized. For example, say I had a research journal on my desktop computer that I need to work on whenever I can. So I put it on my laptop as well so I can work on it when Im at the library or traveling. Add a to-do list that I keep on both machines, a census worksheet that I want available at all times, my genealogy computer program file, and well, you get the idea. You can see that pretty soon keeping my two computers synchronized can become a confusing process. How can I easily ensure that the latest revision of all of those files is on both of my computers? This is where Dropbox and Evernote simplify my life. A software program that I download from Dropbox.com to each of my computers automatically creates a Dropbox folder on them, and then takes over the job of keeping all of the files that I put into those folders synchronized. Here is how that works. I update my census file on my desktop computer, and when I save the file, it is automatically uploaded to the Dropbox server. When I turn on my laptop and connected to the Internet, the Dropbox program senses that the version of the file on the laptop is now out of date and downloads the most recent version from the Dropbox server. Now lets say Im at the library with my laptop and I create a word processing document about some genealogy research that I have done. I save it to the Dropbox folder on my laptop, it automatically is uploaded to the Dropbox server, and then it is downloaded to the Dropbox folder on my desktop computer (or it will be as soon as my desktop connects to the Internet). Dropbox also serves as a backup device and file archive. I can sign in to my account at www.dropbox.com and restore deleted files (in case I got careless and got rid of something I didnt mean to). I also can see previous versions of a file theres the archive function. Dropbox is a free service if you restrict your total file size to no more than two gigabytes. There is a monthly fee if you need more space, and there are a couple of different levels of service you can choose from. Most of us should not need the extra space, however, because two gigabytes will accommodate a lot of pictures (1,000 at two megabytes each) and several million documents about the size of this article. The service does become addictive, however. Ive found that the more comfortable I become with the service, the more apt I am to automatically save a document to the Dropbox just for the convenience of having it accessible on all of my computers when I need it. Evernote operates under the same basic concept as Dropbox; that is, it operates from a piece of software loaded on each of your computers, it transfers saved notes to the Evernote computers, and it automatically synchronizes the saved notes on all of your computers. The primary difference between the two services is that whereas Dropbox deals with files that are created with other programs (such as Word or Excel), Evernote is more of an authoring tool. You use the program itself to create notes that are then synchronized among your various computers. Imagine how helpful it would be to jot some quick research notes on your laptop or tablet while at the library and have it waiting for you on your computer for additional work when you get home. Its capabilities go beyond that, however. Once you have written a note you can tag it with one or more identifiers for easy retrieval later. For instance, I might type a note on my laptop while visiting my relatives in Nebraska, and tag it with the words genealogy, Grandpa, and census so I can easily find it again among my many notes by simply searching on any of those words. There are some other capabilities of Evernote that might be of interest to you, so I encourage you to check out their website. Evernote is a free service so long as you dont upload more than 60 megabytes of data per month to the Evernote servers. This is a different accounting method than Dropbox uses, but it still equates to a lot of data. If you need a higher transfer limit, you can get it for a monthly fee, but for casual use, 60 megabytes is ample. Each of the product websites have an introductory video that explains the essentials and gives examples of uses of the products. If you have any interest at all in using the services, be sure to watch the videos to see even more features than I have explained here. I myself use both Dropbox and Evernote on my laptop and both my wifes and my desktop computers. I also have both loaded on my IPod and iPad where they work essentially the same way. For those important files and notes then, all of my computing devices are always synchronized and up-to-date. There are other services that operate in much the same way as these two: One Note, One Drive, and Google Docs come to mind. And just to show that I dont play favorites, I use all of them also. The point is that the capability to backup and synchronize files is easy to acquire and use today, and you should look into it if you think it would be advantageous. I personally find that both programs are very helpful in supporting my data management tasks, and especially genealogy research.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

TORRES School notesCLEARWATER Clearwater Central Catholic High School recently announced that senior Destiny Chase was awarded the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Scholarship. This college scholarship is funded by an anonymous donor in memory of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. She established the first Catholic school in the nation, founded the first American congregation of Religious Sisters (Sisters of Charity), and established the first American Catholic orphanage. Photo courtesy of CLEARWATER CENTRAL CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOLDr. John Venturella, left, awards Destiny Chase the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Scholarship. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO For one last time, Largo High School alumni walked through the old halls and under brick archways where they attended classes, played sports and participated in a plethora of activities during the 57-year history of the facility. The school hosted an open house May 12-13, a final homecoming before the school is demolished to make way for new, state-of-the-art buildings. Demolition will begin this summer after school ends. Students will take classes from portables during the two projected years it takes to build the new high school. The bricks that make up much of the architecture of the school along with locker doors, bleacher seats or pieces of the gym floor are being sold as fundraiser for the LHS Athletic Boosters. They will help pay for items the capital fund wont cover, like a new concession stand and bathrooms on the visitors side of the field. As of the start of the open house May 13, the Boosters had sold more than 1,000 bricks, said booster president Dean Newton. Im really amazed at the people that showed up, Newton said, who, while not a alumnus, had seven children attend the high school. Its neat to see the classes congregate. He estimated that about 800 attended the first night of the open house and said about 1,000 were expected on the final night. It already looks like theres more here tonight than there was last night, he said. Many of the alumni claimed memorabilia they had contributed to the school: a quilt created as a school project that hung in the library, old yearbooks and trophies. In the band room, Robin Benoit, wife of band director Christopher Benoit, helped former drum majors collect trophies won while they were at the helm of the marching band. More than 500 trophies had been labeled with names in hopes of paring down their quantity, she said. And the trophies made up just a portion of the items that had to be moved out by June 6. Principal Brad Finkbiner said he noticed that open house was a chance for alumni to see those in classes that preceded or followed their own, those they wouldnt catch up with at their own reunions. They are seeing folks that they were in school with maybe not the same class and just really are reminiscing, he said. He also was encouraged to see the current students interact with the alumni. Students who participated the first night had so much fun talking with the alumni that they had decided to come back. Its that community thread that runs through this place, and its really cool, he said.

The new model, called Pinellas Innovates: Pathways to Personalized Learning, is designed to prepare more students for success after high school. Starting with the 2015-16 school year, the district will open one new school in partnership with the New Tech Network dedicated to the personalized learning model. The same year, several existing high schools will institute the personalized learning plan for select students. In January 2015, in Phase 3 of the initiative, Pinellas County Schools will receive $2.5 million in funding to implement personalized learning. Through a 15-year process, this innovative model is expected to expand to all schools in Pinellas County. We view this as transformational for education in Pinellas County, said Michael Grego in a press release. Grego is superintendent of Pinellas County Schools. This new model creates a system where each student is empowered to design a school experience that best meets their needs and goals. This is already happening for some students. We want it to happen for all. Personalized learning can include: Integrated project-based learning that takes into consideration cultural perspectives and post-secondary aspirations to help students relate to the work they do Flexible schedules and course time requirements so students can advance sooner based on subject mastery and not on a prescribed semester schedule Student, parent and teacher input on curriculum that best meets student needs and goals Monitoring of students to help them and their parents navigate and design their learning experience Enhanced technology resources that help students meet their learning goals Each part of the personalized learning plan is aligned to the districts Strategic Plan, and implementation will involve collaboration from stakeholders including teachers, administrators, parents and community leaders. The district plans to launch personalized learning programs in at least four of the districts traditional high schools identified through a rigorous selection process. Several high schools have been selected for this opportunity. Clearwater, Lakewood, Northeast and Pinellas Park high schools have been have been selected to create plans for personalized learning programs in their schools. Seminole High School has also been selected for this opportunity in partnership with the Career Academies of Seminole. The plan is designed to encourage autonomy within the schools that launch personalized learning, said Rita Vasquez, executive director of high school education. We want school leaders and teachers empowered to create a system that is personalized for the needs of students at that school. After receiving a $64,518 Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Next Gen Systems Initiative grant for the first phase of implementation, the district was able to design a comprehensive personalized learning strategic plan. The Phase 1 grant provided the district with a number of resources, including a full-time project manager, a district-chosen planning partner with experience in launching personalized learning schools (New Tech Network), a visit to a New Tech Network school, extensive technical assistance from consultants, personalized learning resources provided on the Next Gen Systems Portal and potential for individual school planning and launch funding in Bill championed by PPHS Criminal Justice Academy gets legislative approvalPINELLAS PARK A specialty license plate designed by students from Pinellas Park High Schools Criminal Justice Academy that honors fallen law enforcement officers has passed the Florida House and Senate and now awaits the signature of the governor. Once signed by Governor Rick Scott, Floridians will be able to purchase the specialty plate with the proceeds going to help children. The CJAs Class of 2014 has been instrumental in making the specialty plate a reality. It has taken three years and a lot of work to overcome the moratorium on specialty plates in Florida to make the class dream a reality, wrote Michelle Topping, the Criminal Justice Academys program coordinator. PPHS students, with the guidance of their teacher Richard Cross, designed the plate, collected the needed signatures from the public, and traveled to Tallahassee to support and lobby the bills passage. The plate will have the saying A Hero Remembered Never Dies at the bottom of it. The annual usage fees collected as a result of purchasing the specialty plate will be distribruted to the Police and Kids Foundation, Inc. Sen. Jack Latvala and Representatives Ed Hooper, Larry Ahern and Dwight Dudley sponsored the bill. The entire Pinellas County legislative delegation voted for it.Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOLSThis specialty license plate designed by students at Pinellas Park High Schools Criminal Justice Department honors fallen law enforcement officers. future grant phases. Funds received for Phase 2 will be a significant catalyst for the next steps. The district seeks to accelerate progress toward personalized learning experiences for all students by: Opening a stand-alone incubator high school in partnership with the New Tech Network Launching personalized learning programs within in at least four of the districts 16 traditional high schools with a rigorous selection process Utilizing an interactive learning management system that will tap into current technologies and allow for students, parents and teachers to navigate pathways toward graduation, college acceptance and beyond Removing state and local barriers in order to award credit based on demonstrated mastery not tied to or dependent on seat time As a result of this initiative, Pinellas County Schools will: Increase the percentage of students that graduate college and career ready to at least 80% by 2020 as measured by ACT and SAT scores Ensure that personalization will become the dominant pedagogy used in district classrooms by 2020 Create and implement personalized learning programs within existing schools beginning with 1 percent of the student population in 2015 and growing to a minimum of 25 percent by 2020.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK The AIDS Partnership, a faith-based volunteer agency, will host the local observance of the 31st International AIDS Candlelight Memorial May 18, 6 p.m., at Good Samaritan Church, 6085 Park Blvd. The candlelight memorial was first started in 1983 as an international campaign to raise awareness of the HIV epidemic. The third Sunday in May is a date observed by 1,200 community organizations in 115 countries, according to the organizations website, www.candlelightmemorial.org. Locally, the AIDS Partnership has observed the day for almost 20 years, said its president Ellen Bauer. Its important for many reasons. The world needs to recognize that HIV epidemic is still present, she said. We recognize those who have gone before, and we want those who are affected by HIV now to have some comfort and to know that people are still standing guard and keeping the light on AIDS. The AIDS Partnership seeks to bridge the gap between those suffering from AIDS or HIV and the faith community. An Episcopal priest Rand Frew and Mary Stephan founded the organization in 1994. When Stephans son became infected with HIV, she felt alienation from her Presbyterian church family, Bauer explained. She felt that she could not bring her whole story to all of the faith community, she said. She became aware that there were many people who felt they couldnt bring their tragedy to the faith community. So Stephan worked to unite local Catholics, Lutherans and those of her own denomination to teach the community. She wanted the AIDS Partnership to lovingly give that assistance and support to those struggling with the disease as well as destroy any stigma related to it, Bauer said. Her basic thing was that those that are hurting sit next to you in worship, and they cant even reach out for your help, she said. When Stephan became ill, its volunteers incorporated the organization into a recognized nonprofit in 2002, Bauer said. Stephan died in 2006, but her mission continues. The HIV epidemic is not only an ongoing problem, but prevalent in Pinellas County. In 2013, Pinellas County reported 210 new cases of HIV infection, the seventh highest number of cases in the state, according to the Florida Department of Health. Bauer said the younger generation isnt taking the disease seriously anymore. Our youth these days have no memory of devastation that occurred 20 years ago. These young people are now putting themselves at risk for the same personal devastation, she said. Young peoples attitude is Well, I can take a pill, or Its controllable, without any real internalization (that) the virus destroys their body and the drugs have devastating side effects also. The AIDS Partnership is a small organization with only a four-person board. But theyre all volunteers. Along with providing awareness, the partnership offers support to those infected with the disease, both morally and monetarily with gift cards. The organization hosts a fellowship dinner on third Wednesdays at different local churches that support the partnership. I know that there is a group of people that we have affected in a very positive personal way by offering them fellowship, support and a little bit of money, Bauer said. I am always delighted when I hear someone say something positive about being accepted in the community because we have helped. The group participates in St. Pete Pride. They host HIV testing events. The downtown Dunedin restaurant group of Kellys, Chic a Boom Room Martini Bar and Blur Nightclub has named the nonprofit as its house charity, raising funds for it through 50-50 raffles during Drag Queen Bingo Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m., at Blur, 325 Main St., Dunedin. The memorialMembers of several local churches will participate in the upcoming candlelight memorial. The service in general is designed to incorporate many faiths, Bauer said. As a tradition, the names of victims of the disease will be read throughout the entire service, to represent how the HIV infection is a constant if quiet presence in the world. (It) acts as a background for the whole service, Bauer said. After a gathering prayer, the group will recite a Kaddish, a Jewish prayer for mourners. There will be responsive readings, congregational singing and performances by soloists from Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Church in Dunedin, St. Johns Episcopal Church in Clearwater and the local Jewish congregation. Rev. Temple Hayes of First Unity of St. Petersburg, and William Harper, executive director of the AIDS Service Association of Pinellas, will speak. The candlelight service will end with a tolling of the AIDS memorial bells, once for every year of the epidemic. (H)elp us recognize the disease, grieve with those who have lost loved ones and be uplifted by our message, Carol Dunn, secretary of the AIDS Partnership, wrote in a email inviting local officials to the service. The AIDS Partnership has offices at St. Lutherans Church, 407 S. Saturn Ave. in Clearwater. For more information about the organization, call 446-7718, ext. 242 or visit www.aidspartnershipinc.com.

The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated $17,500 to local organizations.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, May 15, 2014Its time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress, Monica Lewinsky, now 40, writes in a Vanity Fair essay due for digital release today. All I can say is: You go, girl. The 1998 revelation of LAffaire Lewinsky and its fallout should have made one thing clear to American women. Forget Youve come a long way, baby. When husbands cheat, the other woman usually ends up the odd man out. Bill Clintons presidency and poll ratings survived his self-serving definition of sex. Hillary Clinton had to live with her husbands betrayal, but the scandal helped boost her career from first lady who blamed a vast right-wing conspiracy to U.S. senator to presidential front-runner and then to secretary of state.Lewinskys professional life did not fare so well. In the first few years after the scandal, she gave interviews that demonstrated how clueless and reckless she had been in hooking up with the big creep. Largely silent over the past decade, that woman, Miss Lewinsky, has wised up. I look back now, she writes, and shake my head in disbelief, and wonder: what was I what were we thinking? I would do anything to go back and rewind the tape. A gals gotta make a living. Lewinsky used her name to peddle handbags and a weight-loss program. She earned a masters in social psychology at the London School of Economics, but the world wouldnt let her keep a low profile. I eventually came to realize, she writes, that traditional employment might not be an option for me. Only employers who wanted to hire her for the wrong reasons made offers. When you think of how the infamous ex-intern could have cashed in, you appreciate that over time Lewinsky became selective. Monica 2.0 is on a mission. Thanks to the Drudge Report, she writes, she was possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet. The 2010 suicide of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi, after a roommate secretly recorded and broadcast him kissing another man, spurred her to take on the modern culture of humiliation. She calls her own experience the humiliation derby. I am no stranger to that turf. During the impeachment follies, I was critical of Lewinskys decision, at age 21, to consort with the president, as well as her post-internship demands for the presidents time, attention and help in procuring jobs. But I always held Bubba as the most culpable in the group. Not so the many self-styled feminists who trashed Lewinsky, including Americas feminist first lady. Recently released archives report how the first lady told friend Diane Blair that she considered Lewinsky to be a narcissistic looney tune, while Clinton blamed herself for her husbands extramarital junket. I find her impulse to blame the Woman not only me, but herself troubling, Lewinsky writes. The sisterhood got buried in an avalanche of excuses, starting with: Boys will be boys. The pro-Clinton mantra during impeachment held that if Hillary could forgive Bubba, surely the country should, too. I never thought Hillary Clinton owed Lewinsky anything, but she did owe the voters the truth and that took a long time coming. Now with the passing of time, perhaps Hillary should come out and forgive Lewinsky, too, if only to assuage those Dems who saw Hillary Clintons forgiveness as the great indulgence, the cleaner of all slates. Its time to let Lewinsky, as Clintonistas used to say, move on. She has graduated into an elite group: people who learn from their mistakes.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.

Saunders and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate Web page at www.creators.com.For years Ive heard engineers and other smarter-than-average persons speak of something called entropy. I wanted to ask them what the word means, but I was afraid I wouldnt be able to understand their explanation. But I finally researched entropy on the Web, and here is what I learned. Entropy has several meanings. Most of them pertain to energy, heat transfer, thermodynamics and other stuff that will give you a headache if you dont own a Ph.D. in physics. But a possible corollary Ive latched onto is this: Entropy is the tendency that when left alone, without any outside interference or attention, things will descend into chaos and fall apart. Thats only my rough definition, so dont hold me to it. Now that Im pondering entropy, I begin to see it everywhere. I realize Ive been living with entropy for years in my home my kitchen, my office, my living room. About three times a year I get my condo unit in shape. I clean, vacuum, toss out junk, store books where they belong, wipe off spaghetti stains from my stove the whole assault. Exhausted, I stand there and enjoy the scene. I say to myself: Once more I have climbed out of slobbovia and have rejoined the respectable middle class. I am no longer ashamed to have visitors. But within one day, entropy has re-entered the picture. Already theres a half-filled coffee cup in the sink. Two unread magazines lie on the floor. My desk is cluttered with several bills to pay. And so on. A week later, because of my procrastination and refusal to spend 15 minutes a day cleaning up the joint, entropy is in full command. My home life is falling apart. I believe that entropy may be a major cause of our high divorce rate. On their wedding day, two persons very much in love enter the complex system known as marriage. The happy pair begin to pursue their dreams, some shared, some not. Then, as time passes, life intrudes in the form of children, careers, a mortgage or two, outside unshared hobbies and ambitions. Without the couple realizing it, entropy has come into the picture. The couples organizing principle their marriage and their feelings for one another has not received enough attention. Unless that changes, entropy may increase until the system (i.e., the marriage) will decline and fall apart. Entropy is commonly seen in food spoilage. Place a loaf of bread, a banana, a glass of milk and the remains of a roast chicken on a kitchen counter in room temperature. Come back in 10 days and see what has happened. The odors and shades of green that will greet you are the manifestations of entropy in full bloom. (Your children may wish to do this experiment for their next show-and-tell assignment at school. Or not.) One or two other examples of entropy occur to me, although they may not exactly fit the terms requirements. One is the water that covers most of this fragile globe we live on. Five thousand years ago the worlds oceans were relatively clean. The cities and humans that bordered the seacoasts had only begun to use the ocean as a dumping ground for waste matter such as sewage, garbage and destructive chemicals. Today our oceans have been transformed into cesspools, relatively speaking. With a few exceptions, efforts to save the planets ocean system have been relatively absent. Entropy has taken over.To a similar degree, the same thing has apparently happened to earths entire climate. Even after conceding that climate change would occur even if the earth were uninhabited by humans, most reputable experts have concluded that we the people of the world have managed to alter our shared climate in many ways, most of them harmful. We have divided our earthly political system into about 190 distinct independent nations. The likelihood is small that enough of these countries will combine their environmental policies to stave off the climatic catastrophes that are now predicted. But as my grandmother used to say, We live in hope, even if we die in despair. Now, theres a cheerful quote for you. To further stretch the meaning of entropy, I offer the continuing degradation of the American language. Our tongue is alive and vibrant (witness the many new words invented each year), but were also adept at getting rid of old but still useful words, phrases and linguistic attitudes, in the name of brevity, stylishness and reduced mental effort on the part of speakers and writers.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net.I have several questions for my longtime friend, ample-bodied seaman Keith R. Along with Captain Dave, Captain Bob, myself and Keith, better known as Bear, I sailed from Cape Canaveral to Green Turtle Cay in 1993. Sorry, Ive already spun a half-true yarn. We used diesel power during most of the ocean voyage to the island; there was rarely enough wind to blow a seagull feather off the boats bow. Bear has returned to Green Turtle Cay for a month stay with some friends, renting a house on the island, which is in the Abacos. In the words of a great song writer, hes Incommunicado. Couldnt reach him by cell phone. But his voicemail said he might be able to communicate via email, if he gets around to checking his messages. I emailed Bear several questions: So whats the news from Green Turtle? Is Miss Emily Blue Bees Bar still around? Do they remember you there? Do you spend your day listening to Buffett music? Might have to return there, some day. Ill be sure to bring some steaks. Stay afloat. Bear sent an email blast to friends and fellow ancient mariners, such as myself, saying Green Turtle Cay has seen some changes since his last visit about 20 years ago. The good news is Miss Emilys Blue Bee Bar, probably as much revered in the Abacos as the Biltmore is in Belleair, is still going strong. In the 1960s, Miss Emily invented a coconut concoction called the Goombay Smash, which also includes dark rum, apricot brandy, pineapple juice and orange juice. Even the most seasoned pirate wannabes know that if you drink more than two Goombay Smashes on a single visit to Miss Emilys, you will quickly fall from grace with the sea. You could even become a victim of Captains Dilemma, a series of missteps that can lead to an unintentional fall into the ocean. On my last visit to Green Turtle aboard the 36-foot sailboat Distant Fire, Captain Dave regaled the crew with an anecdote about his most embarrassing moment at sea. After dining and imbibing, I assume, at the Bluff House, Dave, sporting his dress whites, prepared to board his dinghy to return to the Distant Fire. His mistake, as best as I understood, was that he gingerly put one foot on the side of the dinghy while keeping the other foot on the dock, as the inflatable craft slowly inched away from the dock. During a moment of suspended animation, Dave was faced with the dilemma: Do I push my foot away from the dinghy or the other foot away from the dock? But by then, momentum took charge and Dave fell into the water. Prime entertainment for the natives, Im sure. Sad to say, I set the record for facing the most Captains Dilemmas on a single trip at least three, though Bear would say thats an underestimate. Hes also continuously reminding me that I forgot to bring the steaks on our 1993 trip and that I never found my sea legs. Fortunately for me, as Bear said, there were plenty of lines and other nautical devices on Distant Fire I could grab onto, minimizing the amount of times the crew called out my nickname: Somebody throw him a rope. Wasnt much of a sailor, either. When I took the steering wheel in an attempt to learn, in Captain Daves words, I kept doing penalty turns. But I learned quickly how to relax on the sailboat while at anchor at Green Turtle Cay and how to sleep on a sailbag, not an easy feat while hearing island roosters cock-a-doodle-dooing and dogs barking all night. Hooks in the bags that leave indentations on your buttocks hindered the process, too. Green Turtle Cay is about three miles long and a half-mile wide, population 450 or so. Among other changes, Bear wrote, is that Miss Emilys now serves food. Some new restaurants and some old that have closed. Lauras Kitchen is gone as is the Red Rooster, Bear wrote. Front page news, I thought, or at least worth a mention in the Coconut Telegraph. Gas is $6 a gallon. Oh-oh. How much is beer? Manjack now has two houses on the island. We tried to go to Guana but the passage was too rough for my passengers, he wrote. We went outside GTC on the ocean side and were going to snorkel the reef up from Pelican Cay. However, the numerous black fin sharks changed our minds. Good move. They probably swim faster than ample-bodied seamen. Miles of desolate beaches, turquoise seas and rustic waterfront haunts Green Turtle Cay is perfect for those enchanted by 5-oclock-somewhere ambiance. Wish we could all be here together, Bear wrote. Right you are, Bear. Not sure it would be the same, though, without the crew of the Distant Fire to retell those sea stories, revisit Miss Emilys and to share some great conch fritters. And, most importantly, to throw me a rope.Tom Germond is the executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSAm I 16 or 60?Editor: Yes, I am 60 years old. But sometimes I feel like I am 16 again. How? No, I am not getting dementia. I mean that, like many 16 year olds today, I do not have a plan for the rest of my life and just let things happen. Sixty isnt sentient (perceptive, aware). It is an acquired skill. As teenagers will soon find out, those in the sixth decade of life realize it to be an unstable time. Things havent turned out like you planned. I didnt count on being downsized twice, or filing for divorce, or having an empty nest, or getting a smaller nest egg. I never planned on having 70 sessions of transition counseling. Or how quiet being home alone really is, except for the periodic performance of the Largo Symphony (a.k.a. dueling ambulances). Now a sexagenarian, I am relearning those lessons 16 year olds learned. I have a new focus and experienced unexpected joys. Like the importance of friends, the importance of faith (no, Planned Parenthood), I was not tissue in the womb. God knew me in the womb and gave me a destiny and free will. In other words, I may not have a plan but God does. He knew there would be hills and valleys. I have learned to live authentically and just be myself. I live in a small home on a small patch of grass. I try to do my own repairs (little mechanical talent but lots of enthusiasm). I bought my first reversible drill today! I brought more than about 100 books from my previous home and am slowly rereading, donating or keeping them. I had 50 suits from my corporate life and now have 25. I am interested in part-time work involving some kind of intellectual endeavor. So my advice to searching 16 year olds would be to carefully choose friends; all you need is one or two to negotiate life. Make sure they have good character (honest, trustworthy). Study and graduate either high school or college. Having a degree did help me get better paying jobs that cushioned the family in bad times. Most importantly, ask God for direction and guidance. We were not meant to travel alone but to have fellowship on this very short trip. More time is behind me than is in front of me. Like the young people, I too feel illequipped and unsure about the future. But I too will find my way. Like youve been called Sweet Sixteen (I never knew why), I pray to find my own meaning and become a Sweet Sixty.

Everyone was outside. Even the warming waterways were studded with dolphins. During one survey, eight different groups called our waters home. The biggest group steadily assembled in behavior called Out of the Blue to reflect the tantalizing way new dolphins appear unpredictably in the midst of other dolphins. Not only is it thrilling to see more and more dolphins nearby. Out of the Blue dolphins materialize delicately as if lured hypnotically by some maritime Pied Piper. At its largest, the Out of the Blue dolphins became a nursery group with one big bull. The oldest calf, Cutlass, stayed his mom Courtneys side. Local calves do this when mom looks weary, which Courtney did. Dark circles surrounded her sleepy eyes. Courtney may be pregnant. Pregnant dolphins swim very sleepily in the spring and summer until they give birth. Boaters need to be extra alert for them. But the other three calves took full advantage of their roving playpen! Capt. John Heidemann and I worked hard to identify their wiggly bodies that darted with signature suddenness. The youngest, Jacamo, a creative spelling of the Italian word for James so that it alphabetizes with its mother J, was quickly retrieved to moms side. J is an attentive mother. She apparently decided that 2-year-old Xanion, named after a comb for really tangled hair, and Fairuz, which is turquoise in Arabic, played too roughly. At one point, mother-calf pair Valiant and Vidalia swam past the nursery group going in the opposite direction. They briefly turned as if to catch up but continued on their way. This was yet another observation where Front Slash and Valiant pointedly did not merge. The other groups included two to five dolphins. The average group is four dolphins. These pairs, trios, quartets and quintets reflected some of the other types of dolphin groups you are likely to find in the estuary. Teen bulls Juno and Fugazi briefly swam with their mothers and siblings in the nursery group. But restless with youth, their toothraked-covered bodies soon shot ahead for more fleet-footed adventures. A dolphin trio included our most memorable bull Grin trailing mom Penny and her 2-year-old Potter. Hungry, Penny searched widely while demonstrating her kerplunking hunting specialty. Kerplunking is when a dolphin strikes the water with a commanding tailslap that churns up the muddy seafloor, creating a local maelstrom that confuses or stuns fish. Pennys periodic pauses to kerplunk incited Potter to demonstrate his own cute little childish attempts at this specialized behavior. Grin did not seem to hunt as he meandered diffidently behind Penny. Neither did he seem to mind Potters excited company. The massive bulls presence energized Potter, who began leaping over the water next to Grin. This animated Grin briefly, for bull and babe once dashed over to catch a quick ride on a passing boat. Potters eager interest in Grin reminded me of other calves who reacted like this to bulls unobtrusively interested in their mother. It also reminded me of the hero worship that kid monkeys show towards the big male of their group: Like fans encasing a celebrity, a horde of small monkeys surrounds the big male should he descend to the cage floor to forage for raisins and seeds, searching when he searches, sitting when he rests. We glimpsed local bulls BB and DD2 as their quintet snoozed their way into the mysterious waters beyond our study area. DD2 (pronounced Double D Two) is one of our two local dolphins with a split dorsal fin. I am sorry to say that someone with widely spaced teeth gave DD2 a new set of rake marks. There is no free lunch at the dolphin delicatessen. The return of the dolphins is great news. But it carries the warning: There is no such thing as a free lunch. Something has gone awry in the local ecosystem that has disrupted the dolphins long-time seasonal patterns. From 2005 through 2010, the dolphin seasonal pattern was this: Dolphins were most abundant locally in the summer, slowly vacated the estuary in the fall, were the least abundant in the winter and slowly returned in the spring. From 2011 through 2013, the seasonal pattern was this: Dolphins were equally abundant in the spring and summer at lower-than-usual numbers, and were equally abundant in the fall and winter, also at lower-than-usual numbers. Dolphin Watch reported this disquieting situation in the fall of 2013. We have documented two obvious changes in local conditions. One was the disruption of the ecosystem from the record cold winter of 2009-2010. Lowered food supplies put obvious stress on any wild aniPhoto by ANN WEAVERAdult dolphins like this trio of moms return to the estuary in the spring to take it easy. It is the kids like kids of all species that are active.mal population. Locally, that includes sea birds and dolphins. The other change is the increasing number of boats anchored on the island sandbars just inside Johns Pass. These activities stress local birds that lose valuable nesting and resting grounds. These activities stress local dolphins by elevating aquatic noise levels and putting them at greater risk from more watercraft activity. These risks take place in waters that local dolphins have historically used to meet, mate and mother their young. Local boaters cannot do anything about lowered food supplies. Local boaters can clearly influence elevated noise levels and watercraft activity in the waterways that, used respectfully, ensure the continuation of local dolphins. We will continue documenting with care this year.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The action followed several meetings and presentations between Chamber business leaders and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) personnel and municipal and county officials. The plan, if approved, will provide rapid bus transit services throughout the county and eventually light rail connecting Clearwater to St. Petersburg with four of the planned rail stops in Largo/Central Pinellas. Commuters would see the expanded bus routes and services as early as 2016. Funding would be provided by a one-percent increase to the county sales tax from 7% to 8%. Transit funding now provided from property taxes would be eliminated. As with any major infrastructure initiative, there will be plenty of discussion about the referendum during the next six months. Already, dozens of forums have been held and more are planned. To learn more, visit www .voteYesonGreenlight.com To assist in helping promote the economic viability of the plan, Chamber President Tom Morrissette is a member of the Yes for Greenlight campaign along with his peers from the St. Petersburg Area and Clearwater Regional Chambers and others. If you would like to pledge your support individually or through your business, please contact Tom at tom@ CentralChamber.biz.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:GodzillaGenre: Action, adventure and science fiction Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston Director: Gareth Edwards Rated: PG-13 The worlds most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure Godzilla. From visionary new director Gareth Edwards comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance, as humanity stands defenseless.Million Dollar ArmGenre: Drama Cast: Jon Hamm, Bill Paxton, Lake Bell, Suraj Sharma, Aasif Mandvi, Madhur Mittal, Pitobash and Alan Arkin Director: Craig Gillespie Rated: PG Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things arent going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseballs next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called The Million Dollar Arm. With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku (Suraj Sharma), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.Opening this weekendGodzilla stars Watanabe, Cranston; Disney delivers Million Dollar Arm Photo by KIMBERLEY FRENCH/WARNER BROS.Bryan Cranston stars as Joe Brody in Warner Bros.

Her sixth album Can You Stand The Heat released last year was a Pick Of The Week by USA Today and featured on NPR Music. Popovic was born in Belgrade, formerly Yugoslavia, and grew up in a warm and loving family where music was very important. All throughout her youth, her father would invite friends over for nightly jam sessions. In this atmosphere, she quickly learned her fathers impressive blues and soul record collection, grabbed his guitar and started playing at the age of 15. Since then, she has developed into a phenomenal guitarist/vocalist with a growing legion of fans throughout the world.

Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, spent more than 20 weeks on Billboards Top 200 Albums chart in 2013.

The Mikado stars Patrick Ryan Sullivan as The Mikado of Japan, Larry Alexander as Pooh-Bah and Tampa Bays favorite actor/drag performer Matthew McGee as Katisha, the elderly lady. This masterpiece of silliness and satire will take audiences to a politically incorrect, fictional version of feudal Japan for an evening of tomfoolery and visual decadence. freeFalls production will be a mix of Kabuki theater, Vegas floor show and RuPauls Drag Race as a cast of nine men and a rocking band bring to life the series of sublimely ridiculous executions and weddings that make this perennial classic a must-see. The cast for The Mikado also features Dick Baker as Nanki-Poo, a Wandering Minstrel; Glenn Gover as Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner of the Town of Titipu; Emanuel Carrero, Gavin Esham and Mark Vincent Mansilungan as, respectively, Yum-Yum, Pitti-Sing and Peep-Bo, sisters and Wards of Ko-Ko.

Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Matinees will be Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for students. Call 866-1973. Regrets Only is a hilariously intelligent comedy jam-packed with witty one-liners and devilish cattiness. Mixing conservative politics and gay marriage like a well stirred martini in the swank Manhattan home of socialites Jack and Tibby McCullough is funny enough but fueling it with the fabulous fashion designer Hank Hadley ensures no one will know where the party ends up.

The Scottish actor reprises his role as Professor Charles Francis Xavier in the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, set for release May 23. On May 30, another film featuring McAvoy will open in a handful of U.S. markets, released by Magnolia Pictures. Filth, a 2013 Scottish crime drama, fulfills the implicit potential of its title, displaying a wealth of sordid depravities and wanton debauchery as it traces the moral, physical and psychological disintegration of its central character. The film places Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) under the magnifying glass. Robertson explicitly illustrated not just as a run-of-the-mill crooked cop but as a misogynistic, misanthropic sociopath with Machiavellian aspirations is up for a promotion, along with a half dozen or so others. He immediately sets out to sabotage each of his colleagues through whatever means necessary, including bedding their wives and broadcasting confidential details of their private lives. Though Robertson is shamelessly dishonorable and devious, hes equally mesmerizing, due in part to the films twisted sense of humor and its oftensurrealistic tone. Fortunately for Robertson, someone has been murdered. His boss, Chief Inspector Bob Toal (John Sessions), puts him in charge of the investigation. Robertson latches on to this undertaking as an opportunity to secure the promotion. Robertson turns out to be his own worst enemy, of course. Addicted to everything from narcotics and whisky to auto-erotic asphyxiation, all of his poorlyexecuted schemes ultimately begin to unravel. As the register of failures expands, Robertsons tenuous grip on sanity becomes increasingly obvious. His descent into madness is punctuated by unsettling hallucinations, including a dead child and a mocking psychologist (Jim Broadbent). There are obvious and intentional connections between director Jon S. Bairds adaptation of Filth and Danny Boyles film Transpotting. To begin with, both films are cinematic treatments of novels written by Scottish author Irvine Welsh. The similarities in style are striking and unambiguous. Each film boasts edgy narrators serving up existential soliloquies, garish and intense visual sequences and trippy phantasmagorias that would make the late Ken Russell queasy. But Baird tips his hat to a few other filmmakers in Filth. In the opening scenes there is an episode that clearly evokes the ultra-violence of Stanley Kubricks A Clockwork Orange. The film also features other visuals references to Kubrick. Another dreamy sequence seems to call to mind David Lynchs Blue Velvet. Bairds Filth, however, is predominantly dark and provoking. Despite the ubiquitous and subversive sleaze that oozes from Robertsons pores, the director compels the audience to view the central character as a product of past trauma. Its difficult to imagine anyone else playing Robertson. McAvoys dynamic, gonzo performance amplifies this disturbing and darkly comic drama. In the films production notes, Baird talked about casting McAvoy in the role. Ill never forget the moment I found him, Baird said. I was waiting in the lobby of a Soho hotel feeling somewhat apprehensive, because casting the perfect Bruce Robertson was proving the hardest task of all. Not that it came as any great surprise. Comedy, tragedy, violence, sex and insanity: The part demanded it all, and demanded it all in extremes. There was no hiding place for whoever landed this potentially career-defining role. Bruce was in every scene. Baird assumed that McAvoy probably had a gentle kind of upbringing. But 10 minutes into our meeting, as he started to explain his tough Glaswegian background, and why exactly he understood this character, a shiver raced up my spine, Baird said. McAvoys intelligence, humor and edge immediately put him in a league of his own, and the hunt for Bruce Robertson had come to an end. Other cast members give equally forceful performances. Broadbent is downright creepy as Dr. Rossi, Robertsons psychologist who appears more often to the detective in terrifying hallucinations than in reality. Eddie Marsan plays Clifford Blades, a wealthy member of Robertsons masonic lodge who becomes entangled in one of the detectives twisted diversions. Marsan is delightfully pathetic and docile as he staggers between blind obedience to his wife and meek submissiveness to Robertsons decadent whims.McAvoys intense performance electrifies Scottish crime drama FilthMovie review Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Photos courtesy of MAGNOLIA PICTURESJames McAvoy, above, and Imogen Poots, at right, star in Filth, a Magnolia Pictures release.Other standout performances include Imogen Poots stars as Amanda Drummond, Jamie Bell as Ray Lennox, Shirley Henderson as Bunty and Gary Lewis as Gus Bain. Filth is not a feel-good movie and its certainly not for the delicate and easily offended. Its brutally explicit rendering of gradual self-destruction is unsettling and grotesque. For those who can stomach it, Filth is thoroughly rewarding with its jarringly grim humor, its gaudy degeneracy and its cathartic morality tale. Filth is due for limited release in the United States on May 30 and will probably be screened mainly in art house cinemas and, possibly, in a few larger multiplexes. For those who would like to see the film before its official release date, Filth is now On Demand and iTunes. Call to artists for Gecko Ball creationsGULFPORT Local artists are invited to submit a proposal for the creation of a larger-than-life gecko to be auctioned during the annual Gecko Ball on Saturday, Aug. 23.

This is the fifth year that artists will be selected to create geckos to be auctioned at the Gecko Ball and the popularity of the gecko auction grows each year. Nearly 30 geckos have been created in previous years, each becoming a collectors item. A portion of proceeds from the Gecko Ball, as well as GeckoFest and the Gecko Pub Crawl is donated to local charities each year, and also funds the commission of public art projects in the Gulfport waterfront district. The theme of this years Gecko Ball is Roaring Geckos!, a 1920s motif evoking flappers, The Great Gatsby, gangsters, Guys and Dolls, and other s touchstones. Costumes are encouraged. The event will feature a dinner buffet, cash bar, live music and dancing, costume contest, silent auctions and the live auction of artistcreated geckos. Tickets for Gecko Ball go on sale a few weeks prior to the event, and it is known to sell out every year.

Ukeje and Rob David Director: Biyi Bandele Not rated Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Upon returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the revolutionary professor Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu (John Boyega) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard (Joseph Mawle), an English writer. Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements, and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their life seem to loom larger than politics. However, they become caught up in the events of the Nigerian civil war, in which the lgbo people fought an impassioned struggle to establish Biafra as an independent republic, ending in chilling violence, which shocked the entire world.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

A woman politely refused to accept a head of cauliflower, a prize she won at Carettas Restaurant booth during Taste Fest May 9 on Clearwater Beach. Thats wrong, Jordan said. But there were several other more appetizing prizes given away at the both and dozens of people enjoyed cauliflower emulsion dishes and laughed at the chance to win a head of cauliflower. Round and round she goes and where she stops nobody knows on the wheel of cauliflower, said Sand Pearl Food and Beverage Director Jonathan Pelletier, as he spun the wheel. Attendees at Taste Fest swarmed the booths, entering drawings and sampling everything from chilled duck breast to buffalo wings while drinking fine wines and craft beer. Its great; its wonderful. A nice taste of it all, said Jean Crider of Southgate, Michigan, who is staying with her son and daughter in Clearwater. Crider was hard pressed to say what her favorite food sample was at Taste Fest. There hasnt been anything Ive been disappointed in. I couldnt even pinpoint it. Because everything Ive tasted I keep saying thats the best. She said if shes in the area again, shell come back to the event. Taste Fest, which also featured fireworks, is part of the Fifth Annual Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week May 12-18. Its a fabulous night. We couldnt be happier, said Darlene Kole, president of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce. The chamber has been planning for Tast Fest for six months. We have 27 restaurants, tons of sponsors and vendors. Awesome crowd. The weather is perfect, she said. And you can win a head of cauliflower. An attendee at Taste Fest spins the wheel of cauliflower operated by Jonathan Pelletier, Sand Pearl Resort food and beverage director, right.
