Clearwater police estimate that more than 350 people attended the service to pay their respects to the man who spent much of his life working to protect others. Carey, 70, died May 20, 2014 at his job as a Clearwater school crossing guard. He was hit by a car at the intersection of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and Belcher Road and died at the scene. He was born Nov. 27, 1943. His career included 20 years of service as a Clearwater police officer. He served as a patrolman, training officer and retired as a detective in 1987. He later worked as a security guard for Morton Plant Hospital before rejoining Clearwater PD as a school crossing guard in 2010. He served in the military police of the U.S. Air Force and received an honorable discharge in 1968. He was a lifelong member of the Fraternal Order of Police. Survivors include his wife of 42 years, Jean; his daughter, Toni Carey of Brandon; a son, Brian Carey of Clearwater; a grandson, Dylan Carey of Clearwater; a nephew, Oliver Nelson Butch Carey and many other family members in Wisconsin. Residents from Clearwater and Pinellas County also paid tribute to Carey via makeshift memorials near the site where he died and at local schools attended by children that he helped get to class safely day after day.Largo hosts roundtable discussionPhoto by JULIANA A.

By SUZETTE PORTERBefore hurricane season begins each year, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Climate Prediction Center releases an outlook. Experts gave odds May 22 that the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season will have near-normal or below-normal activity. The outlook gives a 50 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season and a 10 percent chance of an abovenormal season. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. The outlook also calls for a 70 percent chance that eight to 13 named storms will form with three to six strengthening into a hurricane and one to two becoming major hurricanes. The average, from 1981 to 2010, is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. One of the biggest factors behind the 2014 predictions is the formation of El Nio, which would suppress the number and intensity of tropical systems. Atmospheric and oceanic conditions across the tropical Pacific are already taking on some El Nino characteristics, said Dr. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with the Climate Prediction Center. Also, we are currently seeing strong trade winds and wind shear over the tropical Atlantic. He said NOAAs climate models expect the conditions to continue, partly because of El Nio. The expectation of near-average Atlantic Ocean temperatures this season, rather than the above-average temperatures seen since 1995 also suggests See HURRICANES, page 4A See CROSSING GUARD, page 4A By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Pinellas County has offered new terms for a potential agreement with the several Pinellas cities and fire districts that dispute its method for reducing costs for emergency medical services. The new terms were introduced during a conflict resolution meeting with the city of Largo May 27, the first step required by law before the city can sue the county. The meeting, the citys first attempt to tackle the issue since County Administrator Bob LaSala was fired, comes with about 60 days left before the governmental agencies must realistically finalize the agreement, and then their EMS budgets, in time for the new fiscal year budget process. I think 60 days is a very short amount of time to iron out some very significant issues, Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis said after the meeting. I dont think weve started all on the same page. Largo, and a number of other fire districts who also attended the meeting at Largo Public Library, disputed three changes to the proposed EMS agreement, which would cause the cities to receive less than the reasonable and customary cost of See EMS, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Health . . . . . . . . . . .13A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .14A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .10A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising VIEWPOINTSD-Day revisitedErnie Pyle at Normandy, part two.

Twelve of the last 20 hurricane seasons have had above-normal activity. The area has been in an era of high activity since 2005, he said. The Atlantic basin includes the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico. Despite the prediction that hurricane activity could be less this year, experts urge people to prepare. It only takes one hurricane or tropical storm making landfall to have disastrous impacts on our communities, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Just last month, Pensacola Florida saw five inches of rain in 45 minutes without a tropical storm or hurricane. We need you to be ready. Know your risk for hurricanes and severe weather, take action now to be prepared and be an example for others in your office, school or community. Climate experts rank named storms and hurricanes according to wind speed. A named storm must have minimum sustained winds of 39 mph. To gain the status of a Category 1 hurricane, on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, sustained wind speeds must increase to a minimum of 74 mph. The top rank, a Category 5 has minimum sustained winds of 156 mph. A major hurricane is a Category 3 or higher. A Category 3 has minimum sustained winds of 111 mph.

Six lists are used in rotation. Names may be retired when a storm is so deadly or costly that future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. If that occurs, the WMO committee will remove the name from the list and another name will be selected to replace it. Names for 2014 are Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gonzalo, Hanna, Isaias, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky and Wilfred.New tools for 2014During the May 22 press conference, NOAAs experts talked about new tools available to staff at the National Hurricane Center, including an experimental mapping tool to show communities their storm surge threat. The potential storm surge flooding map will be issued when areas along the coast of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts become under a hurricane or tropical storm watch. The map will show land areas where storm surge could occur and how high above ground the water could reach.

Wear your angel wings with pride, was written on one framed piece of paper. Someone else wrote on orange poster paper, Douglas thank you. I saw you every morning helping kids cross the street. You always had a smile on your face. Im sad to see you go because you were so committed to the safety of others around you. You was a wonderful man. Rest in peace. We will never forget, said another. On a large yellow poster, someone wrote, Thank you to our crossing guard Doug Carey for serving our community and keeping our children safe. You are not forgotten! Your family is in our prayers. Soar with the angels Doug. It was signed a grateful community. U.S. Rep. David Jolly, who represents District 13, took a moment to honor Carey on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives May 22. Officer Carey lost his life while doing what he loved and what he did best, protecting and serving his community, Jolly said. Officer Carey will be greatly missed, but his spirit lives on through the many many lives he has touched in our community of Pinellas County Florida. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to the Salvation Army in his memory to help the homeless. Arrangements are by Sylvan Abbey Funeral Home in Clearwater.

Johnson also left two children behind at the scene, a 2 year old and 4 year old, who were airlifted to All Childrens Hospital via Bayflight. Clearwater police announced that both children have since left the hospital.

More than 350 people paid respects at the service.60 in the curb lane just prior to the crash. Alexandria Clark, 22, was driving a 1997 Honda. Clark was preparing to turn north from the turn lane onto Belcher Road. Carey was standing on the northwest corner of the intersection. Clearwater police said it appears that Johnson accelerated through the intersection to avoid the red light. Clarks Honda struck the rear of the Cadillac, causing it to leave the roadway, striking Carey. Johnson fled the scene on foot. A Clearwater Police officer found Johnson in the 300 block of Gunn Avenue and took him into custody. Johnson reportedly admitted to driving the vehicle and fleeing the scene on foot due to having a suspended drivers license. He was charged with leaving the scene of a crash resulting in death, leaving the scene of a crash with serious injury, driving with a license suspended or revoked resulting in death, driving with a license suspended or revoked resulting in serious injury, two charges of aggravated child neglect, resisting arrest without violence and possession of marijuana. Clearwater police reported May 24 that they had found a handgun Johnson had ditched while he was on the run after the crash. He was charged with felon in possession of a firearm. Bond for the nine charges total $491,000. Clearwater police charged Johnson with vehicular homicide May 27. The event data recorder for the Cadillac showed that the driver was speeding at nearly 70 mph just before the crash. The speed limit for that portion of Gulf-to-Bay is 40 mph. As of Tuesday night, no bond had been set for the latest charge of vehicular homicide. Johnson is no stranger to the Pinellas County Jail. Arrest records go back to 2005, when the then 20-year-old was charged with two counts of obstructing or resisting an officer without violence. He spent time in the county jail three times in 2006 for reckless driving, possession of cocaine and marijuana, fleeing and eluding police, and for habitually driving on a suspended license. In 2007, he was jailed twice for driving with a suspended license. Jail records show he was incarcerated five times in 2008 on charges ranging from domestic battery, driving with a suspended license, fleeing and eluding, and reckless driving. In 2009, he was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and obstructing or resisting an officer without violence. He was jailed three times in 2010 for domestic battery, aggravated assault, tampering with a state witness, fleeing and eluding, trespassing and possession of cocaine. In 2011, he was booked into the jail two more times on charges of sale and possession of cocaine, and fleeing and eluding. He spent time in the state prison. EMS, from page 1A CROSSING GUARD, from page 1Aproviding EMS services, according to the letter sent to the county. Under a funding model called CARES 2, designed to reduce the countys overall EMS budget, the county had called for some of Largos rescue units to be funded for 14 hours of the day, during peak times, instead of a full 24-hour day. The city also disputed a requirement to convert existing fire vehicles into EMS vehicles to replace the reduction of rescue units. County staff have decided to back down from two of those proposals, said Pinellas County Public Safety Services Director Bruce Moeller, adding that it was never the countys intent to push or force or require operational changes within fire departments. The decreased funding, which was planned for Clearwater, Lealman, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg as well as Largo, is no longer being suggested, he said. The third and most prevalent issue still to be addressed is a proposal that would freeze the funding the county provides for the first three years of the 10-year contract with the fire districts. The funding would be frozen at what has been promised in the current fiscal year, fiscal year 2013. With the reductions off the table, the current proposal puts the city of Largo in a better place than it was before the meeting, Willis said. Yet, were still lower than we would have been for fiscal year 14, a couple of hundred-thousand dollars difference, plus the three-year cap. That was not our goal, she said. Moeller and his staff will draft a proposal that adds in three caveats to the funding freeze. First, the cities will have a chance to recoup some of the actual cost increases for EMS, up to a yet-to-be-determined percentage of their respective EMS budgets. The cost increases would be calculated with the budget year audit and reimbursed after the fact from a reserve fund the county creates for that purpose. Second, each fire district will have a chance to renegotiate the contract should EMS costs go beyond what is anticipated during the first three years. Safety Harbor City Manager Matt Spoor argued that the three-year funding freeze reduced funding in subsequent years as well as the years it intended and suggested a third caveat. Under the countys initial proposal, percentage increases to funding in year four of the contract would be based on the funding given in 2013, regardless of the changes in costs during the three-year freeze. Its a cap for the length of the agreements, Spoor said. Moeller argued that changes in EMS costs and property tax revenue could work in the cities favor during the freeze. But Spoor, backed by agreement in the room, still wanted a mechanism that would adjust the base depending on changing factors during the first three years. We need to account for that base amount, Spoor said. Without it, were at the whim at the CPI to try to make that (cost increase) up in the future. Moeller agreed to add a clause that would address that in a new draft agreement. He asked for the representatives present May 27 which did not include anyone from the biggest fire district in dispute, St. Petersburg to return to a meeting to discuss more specific terms, as drafted by county staff. He said he hoped the cities and districts could come to agreeable terms before presenting them to their elected officials, in order to speed up the process of signing a final agreement. Before the meeting concluded, Pinellas Park Fire Chief Doug Lewis thanked Moeller for making the meeting more than a one-sided conversation. But he added that the cities had not agreed to even the idea of the terms set, just that they would continue to discuss them. The cities want to hold the county, as the EMS authority, to a final judgment in a 1999 lawsuit with St. Petersburg that the funding it provides be reasonable and customary. Moeller disputed that as the terms for an agreement. He wanted, instead, to come to a business arrangement between governmental agencies, he said. The only way were going to, with any affinity, determine what is truly reasonable from a legal perceptive is to end up someplace other than this room. Thats not our desire. Our desire is to reach a reasonable agreement, a business arrangement, as we move forward, he explained. Many representatives from the cities and fire districts asked some form of the question, why now? With pension costs dropping and EMS budgets coming in less than anticipated, the do-nothing model for EMS funding doesnt bring the budget to a breaking point in the next 10 years, said Largo Assistant City Manager Mike Staffopolous. Why change what has been reasonable and customary for something that doesnt seem to be a fiscal issue, at least in the next 10 years? he asked. He questioned, as did others, why the county wanted to impose something as severe as a three-year freeze in the new agreement. For us, that three-year freeze equates to about $4.5 million over a 10year window. Thats considerable money for our agency, and Im sure its considerable for other agencies, Staffopolous said. Moeller said to wait to solve the countys high budget costs of EMS would just kick the can down the road. He remained optimistic that the county could come to an agreement with the cities and fire districts within the time left in the budget process. This issue is primed for resolution, he said. Largo establishes municipal elections By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The qualifying period for Largos elections Aug. 1 to Aug. 15 is set to be officially approved June 3, but several candidates have already declared their intention to run for five of the offices up for election in November. Next week, Largo commissioners will approve the final reading of an ordinance establishing the qualifying period and the election date. City elections will be held in conjunction with countywide elections Nov. 4. Up for election this year is the office of mayor and seats 1, 2, 5 and 6. Current Mayor Pat Gerard has announced intentions for running for county commissioner. Commissioner Woody Brown is the sole candidate vying to replace her. Former Police Chief John Carroll declared intentions to run for the seat vacated by Brown. He currently is unopposed. Commissioner Robert Murray has decided not to run again. In his place, Samantha Fenger and Daniel Ruffner, newcomers to the Largo election process, will be running for seat 2. Newcomer Donna Holck will challenge Commissioner Harriet Crozier for seat 5. Petition cards needed for candidates to qualify will be available June 17. Candidates need 200 petitions signed by registered voters living in city limits, per the city charter. A drawing for ballot position will occur during the Aug. 19 commission meeting. Along with candidates, Largo residents will vote on changes to the city charter. Many of the proposed changes clean up outdated wording, but also up for consideration are how commissioners salaries will be increased, whether the mayor should be solely responsible for committee appointments and slight changes in how elected officials will oversee administrative policies. The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections has estimated the citys general election will cost $5,469, at a rate of 10 cents per voter. Should proposed amendments require a two-page ballot, the cost will increase to $19,394, and the city will have to amend its 2015 fiscal year budget.

The crash occurred on Ulmerton Road in the area of 101st Street North in Largo. Eastbound lanes of Ulmerton Road were closed for several hours as deputies conducted their investigation. Deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team reported that Mark Sena was driving the transport van, which was traveling eastbound on Ulmerton Road, and had been stopped at the red traffic light at 101st Street North. After the light changed, Sena began to accelerate the van, which was struck in the rear by a 2011 HarleyDavidson, also traveling eastbound, driven by Daniel Boggs, 55, of Largo. He was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Deputies report that he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Neither the driver of the van nor his passenger was injured. Deputies said alcohol might be a contributing factor.Inmate dies after suicide attemptCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs Office announced that an inmate died at a local hospital about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 24, from injuries suffered when he tried to hang himself. According to the sheriffs report, detention deputies were getting inmates out to recreation about 8:15 a.m. May 23, when they discovered England Wilson, 32, hanging from his cell gate with a sheet tied around his neck. Deputies cut the inmate from the sheet and began CPR. Medical staff responded and took over medical assistance. Wilsons cell was located in the South Division area of the Pinellas County Jail, 14400 49th St. N. He was being held on a warrant from the U.S. Marshals Service.Sheriffs Office solves 30-year-old cold caseFingerprints on a beer can led Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives to a suspect in a 30-year-old case of sexual battery on a 17-year-old girl in unincorporated Pinellas Park. Detectives secured an arrest warrant May 8 and served the warrant for sexual battery on Lawrence Warren Pierce, 54, at the Bledsoe County Correctional Complex in Pikeville, Tennessee, on May 14. The case began March 26, 1984 when deputies responded to a report of a sexual battery at a Pinellas Park apartment. The unidentified teen told deputies that a man had knocked on her door to ask for directions to a bar. She told the man she did not know. He then forced his way inside, locking the door behind him. He asked the victim out on a date. The 17-year-old told deputies that she had lifted her 2-month-old baby out of the crib, thinking the suspect would not harm her with the baby in her arms. She sat down on the couch and began to give the baby a bottle of milk. Detectives said the man then sat next to her and began fondling her. He took the baby out of her arms and placed it back in the crib. He threw the teen onto her bed, removed her clothing and sexually battered her. The teen fought the man. She kicked him and bit him. Eventually he left. The teen was able to give deputies a good description of the man and the vehicle he was driving. She also was able to provide information from the conversation between the two. Crime scene investigators collected several fingerprints, including one from a Budweiser Tall Boy beer can that the man left at the scene. A neighborhood canvass and a composite sketch yielded no leads. The case eventually went cold because the fingerprints did not match anyone detectives could identify at the time. Through the years, the sheriffs office processed the prints on multiple occasions with no matches found. In November of 2013, an AFIS latent print examiner ran the prints again and discovered a possible match from the FBI database. In December, the sheriffs office confirmed that the prints belonged to Pierce. Detectives from the Crimes Against Children Unit with the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement re-opened the investigation. Detectives conducted hours of meticulous research on the victim and the suspect, conducted multiple interviews and corroborated information to secure a solid case. Pierce began serving time April 1, 2013 at the Bledsoe County Correctional Complex for violation of probation on a sexual battery and kidnapping charge from 2001. During an in-depth interview with Pierce, detectives found out that Pierce was in Florida during the time of the incident. In addition, detectives corroborated the victims original statements regarding the incident and confirmed details of the conversation between the two. During the interview, detectives confirmed specific details of Pierces description as well as a description of the vehicle he was operating, which matched the one described by the victim. Detectives believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information about the case to call Detective Jason Stibbard of the Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-582-6200.Coach charged with lewd, lascivious batteryST. PETERSBURG A youth softball coach in the St. Petersburg area was arrested Thursday afternoon on two charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a victim under age 16. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, the victim is a 15-year-old female known to the victim. Detectives began their investigation after it was disclosed that the suspect had sexual contact with the victim on three different occasions between July 2013 and January 2014 at a private residence in St. Petersburg. Through various investigative techniques, detectives identified the suspect as 28-year-old James C. Woods. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit met with Woods May 22, 2014 and he reportedly admitted to the allegations. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bond was set at $40,000. Detectives said that Woods was a youth softball coach in the St. Petersburg area and had frequent contact with children. Detectives believe that there may be more victims. Anyone with information on this investigation or other potential victims is asked to contact Detective M. Flashenburg with the Crimes Against Children Unit at 582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

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.

Now, they have the distinction of being Pinellas Countys first landmark and landmark site. Commissioners unanimously approved the new designation May 20. According to the countys land development code, which was amended in 2012, a landmark is an archaeological or historical site or structure as designated by specific criteria. The landmark designation may include the location of a significant archaeological feature or historic event. A landmark site is the land on which a landmark and its related structures are located. Before the decision on the landmark designation, commissioners unanimously approved a change in the land development code that required an archaeological resource be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The same requirement did not exist for other historic or cultural resources. With removal of the requirement to be listed on the National Register, commissioners were free to approve the countys first landmark and landmark site. Fort Do Soto Park Supervisor Jim Wilson pointed out that the Fort De Soto batteries had been placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, but the military post had not been included. This designation includes the whole installation, he said. The area within the designation is about 35 acres within the more than 1,000 acres that make up Fort De Soto Park. The history goes back to the 1800s. In fact, the value of establishing batteries and a military post at this strategic location (Mullet Key and Egmont Key) at the entry to Tampa Bay was clearly recognized by the U.S. Military as early as the 1840s, said a memo from staff. Construction of the facilities began in the 1890s and continued into the 1900s, ultimately resulting in a complete coastal defense artillery complex with all the concomitant support housing and infrastructure, the memo said. The remaining structures stand as an example of the type of military defense construction typical of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They include two batteries the Laidley, which has been partially restored, and the Bigelow, which is mostly deteriorated and partially submerged at high tide. The 12-inch mortar battery was named Battery Laidley in honor of Col. Theodore T.S. Laidley who fought in the war with Mexico as well as the Civil War and died in Palatka, Florida. The 3-inch gun battery became Battery Bigelow in honor of 1st Lt. Aaron Bigelow of the 21st U.S. Infantry, killed at the battle of Lundys Lane, Ontario, during the War of 1812. Visitors to Fort De Soto Park can tour Battery Laidley and the last four 12-inch M 1890-MI mortars remaining in North America. According to a history about the park, the only others remaining in the world are in the Philippines. The newly designated landmark site also contains remnant foundations and evidence of the original barracks, storehouses, bakery, hospital, quartermaster storehouse, recreation area, guardhouse, pathways, civilian quarters and other structures. Fort De Soto Park is located at 3500 Pinellas Bayway S., Tierra Verde.

The matter came back to the table during budget talks held off-camera in the commissioners conference room May 22. According to Roche, who is spearheading a call to action, Long changed her mind and expressed a willingness to find out how much money the county could get if it sold the land. Roche scheduled a press conference on Tuesday, May 27, on the steps of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. in Clearwater. Seel and Morroni also were expected to attend. The purpose of the press conference is to announce a call to action of Pinellas Countys citizens, residents and taxpayers to step forward and be heard in an effort to halt the process of inviting Pasco County government to seek an appraisal and the potential subsequent sale of approximately 12,500 acres of Pinellas County land, commonly referred to as Cross Bar and Al Bar Ranch, Roche said in May 23 press release. Roche called the purchase of the land a wise and forwardthinking move to assure that current and future generations of Pinellas County residents would retain the invaluable option of an independent and self-reliant source of fresh, safe and clean drinking water. An independent and self-reliant source of drinking water is the very lifeblood of any community. Without it, you have no community, Roche said. It this land is sold, Pinellas County will have effectively altered a long-standing commitment to an independent, self-insured and self-reliant existence and will thus render current and future generations of Pinellas residents indebted to a third-party vendor for their drinking water. This is completely unacceptable and simply cannot be allowed to happen. The third-party vendor Roche refers to is Tampa Bay Water, which currently supplies drinking water needs for Pinellas County and other member governments. Latvala, Welch and Justice believe a regional approach, through Tampa Bay Water, will sustain the areas drinking water needs now and in the future. Seel believes water will become one of the most precious resources in future years and has expressed a strong desire that Pinellas keep the ranches and the well fields. Morroni agrees and Long had sided with the preservationists in the past. Roche said Long now supports getting an appraisal, something that Justice has requested since the matter first came up for a vote. Roche believes that Latvala is behind the continued push to sell the land. He said it was her idea to consider it during the recent budget discussion. Citing the need for the onetime and potential proceeds from the land sale to be put into the countys general fund to enhance spending options, the vote switched and direction was given to proceed with the process by inviting Pasco County to conduct an appraisal on Cross Bar and Al Bar, Roche said. Roche pointed out that the Utilities department purchased the land with Enterprise Funds. He said Enterprise Fund money could not be used to supplement the general fund. He also said when he brought up that fact at the May 22 meeting Latvala turned to County Attorney Jim Bennett and said, he had worked that out. Roche questions why staff was working on the matter when past decisions had said no to the sell. Roche plans to contact elected officials at the local, state and By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER A 4-3 vote on more than one occasion preserved Pinellas Countys ownership of Cross Bar and Al Bar ranches in Pasco County. Cross Bar was purchased in the 1970s and Al Bar in the 1980s to provide drinking water for a county without reliable sources of its own. Now Pasco County wants to add the land to its own environmental holdings. Past decisionpoints on the matter have pitted Commissioners Susan Latvala, who also is chairwoman of Tampa Bay Water, Ken Welch and Charlie Justice in favor of selling the land against Commission Chair Karen Seel and Commissioners John Morroni, Norm Roche and Janet Long, who opPhoto courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSBattery Laidley is one of the batteries at Fort De Soto that stand as an example of the type of military defense construction typical of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.federal level in an effort to block any potential sale of the two ranches. He invites the public to get involved. These 12,500 acres of land are owned by our taxpayers and paramount to our self-sufficiency as a county for generations to come, he said. The landowners, our taxpayers, should be told what is going on here, and have the right to a lead role in this process. Roche said the appraisal would have no effect on his decision. Theres no price to it, he said. How much is it worth? Doesnt matter. The wealth is in its ownership.

To alleviate the risk of running out of reclaimed water, action is being taken to reduce daily system demands. As of May 26, Pinellas County reclaimed water customers will have reclaimed water available two days per week for irrigation in 24-hour intervals beginning at 12:01 a.m. On Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays the reclaimed water system will be down for maintenance and storage level recovery. This action will affect all reclaimed water customers. Irrigation with Pinellas County supplied reclaimed water is authorized for certain days per week and only during authorized hours. Watering on alternate days should follow the schedule based on house numbers: Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) water on Tuesday and Saturday. Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) water on Wednesday and Sunday. If your property contains a mix of addresses or if an address cannot be determined, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision, water on Wednesday and Sunday. Watering is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. During recent months, very limited rainfall in the Pinellas County reclaimed water service area has increased customer demand. Storage levels of reclaimed water have been rapidly declining, to the point of exhausting the water in storage and potentially damaging pump equipment. As in previous years, this reduced availability is a temporary change that will provide reclaimed water on alternating days of the week. As a result, Pinellas County will be able to slowly restore normal pond operating levels and provide sufficient volume of reclaimed water to meet lawn irrigation needs and maintain adequate system pressure for all customers. Additional conservation measures and stepped-up enforcement may be required to maintain operations during this seasonal dry period. This irrigation schedule is anticipated to remain in effect until at least early July 2014. For more details, call Customer Service regarding reclaimed water at 464-4000, or visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities. Volunteer woodworker brings skills to Heritage Village By BOB COSTIGANRichard Samay jokingly recalls the night a few years ago when, while visiting Heritage Village, he and his family had to be rescued after they got locked in after closing time. That didnt deter the Samays from going back a few weeks later. At the time, both he and his wife Jan were looking to volunteer somewhere part time. While visiting Heritage Village a second time a volunteer suggested the couple consider helping out. Samay said his initial vision of volunteering a few hours a month has turned into donating his time to the village four days a week. Because of Richards variety of skills, he has become a lead volunteer with the maintenance team. In fact, volunteering for the Samays has become a family affair: Jan does interpretation on the weekends at the McMullen Coachman Log Cabin and their daughter Susan and two grandchildren Haley and Austin volunteer on weekends and during special events, like the Country Jubilee and the Folk Festival. Richard lives in St. Petersburg and spent years working in computer tech support and repair for both St. Petersburg College and the Pinellas County school system before retiring. While it may seem odd that he now deals with woodworking and restoration, he is a man of many skills and his passion for woodworking is one he turns to for relaxation. He is a member of the Suncoast Woodcarvers and the St. Petersburg Woodworking Guild, in addition to the Pinellas County Historical Society. All of Richards many skills come into use while caring for Heritage Village and over 29 historic structures in the park. As a lead volunteer, he and a dedicated group of other volunteers help to restore and maintain the structures at the Village. Samay said that everyone in the group has the same feeling when theyre at the Village; they all care about the buildings and their heritage. The modest Samay said that working with an old building requires maintaining the historical part of the building while being aware of safety issues, something they didnt have to worry about so much a hundred years ago. It also requires a lot of patience. Samay and the others are purist in their work. Efforts to preserve and maintain the correct historical and architectural makeup of the structures at the village are work that cannot be rushed. Each historic structure has its own design style and peculiarities. Among the projects theyve worked on include replacing the flooring in the kitchen and bath at the Greenwood House, replacement of porch spindles at the Williams Park Bandstand, a complete restoration of the caboose and repairing, scraping and painting the porches of the House of Seven Gables. Whatever the project, Samay believes in taking the time to do it right the first time, especially with irreplaceable architectural features that arent available at the local lumberyard or home center. Heritage Village volunteer site coordinator Paige Noel said Samay and his team are a valuable asset to the upkeep and preservation of the various structures at the village. She also notes they are always looking for more volunteers not just those who enjoy working with wood. They are in need of receptionists, greeters, historic house caretakers, traditional craft demonstrators and more. She encourages anyone with an interest to stop by the village. Samay agreed, noting he thoroughly enjoys being at the Village doing what he likes to do most while helping preserve the history of Pinellas County.This article was provided by Pinellas County Communications.

The students were chosen from the Students of the Month recognized throughout the year as part of the chambers Education Foundation and its Scholarship Task Force. We had an impressive group of applicants for these two scholarships, said Laurie Bunce of Centratel Business Telephones and chair of the task force. It was very difficult to narrow our choices to two. The first recipient, Maggie Kivett, is the daughter of Tara Kivett and was the May student of the month. Beginning this summer, Maggie will attend the University of Florida to study pharmacy on the pre-med track. Maggie served as student government president and was captain of the swim team.

10A Viewpoints Leader, May 29, 2014Academia is hell. In the latest higher-education fad, students want trigger warnings, according to The New York Times. It appears that some students are so fragile that they want university staff to protect them from big bad ideas. Students around the country say they want explicit alerts that the material they are about to read or see in a classroom might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans. An Oberlin College draft now under revision for trigger warnings suggested faculty be aware of racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, cissexism, ableism and other issues of privilege and oppression. At Rutgers University, a sophomore wrote, Studying art is an emotionally draining experience. And: By creating trigger warnings for their students, professors can help to create a safe space for their students. Be aware: Safe also can mean keeping students safe from having to think freely. In March, University of California, Santa Barbara, feminist studies professor Mireille Miller-Young got in an argument with anti-abortion protesters. I guess she lost, because she grabbed a protesters sign; once in a safe place, her office, she destroyed it. Police charged the professor with vandalism, battery and robbery. According to the police report, Miller-Young, who was pregnant, said that the sign triggered a reaction in her and that she had acted in defense of her right to go to work and not be in harm. Like Miller-Young, I find photos of aborted fetuses offensive. That leaves me with two options: Dont look. Or try to persuade the young women waving the sign to desist. The professor chose a third: to use force. Sadly, more than 1,000 students signed a petition that supports Miller-Young and urges UCSB Chancellor Henry T. Yang to re-evaluate rules and regulations that allow outside community members to so heavily trigger and target students and faculty on this campus. Translation: We cannot handle free speech. Miller-Youngs dissertation is titled A Taste for Brown Sugar: Black Women, Sex Work and Pornography. Free speech worked for her then, but now she doesnt want to share it. Then theres the hate speech excuse. My pal Steve Hayward was invited to be the University of Colorados first visiting scholar in conservative thought. Before his year was up, a small group of academics wanted to haul him before the faculty assembly for a formal censure. His offense? He had posted a blog with a lame joke about LGBTQRSTUW (or whatever letters have been added lately). One professor charged that the post was bordering on hate speech. Miller-Young called the anti-abortion sign hate speech. In Colorado, you dont have to use hate speech; just border on it and theyll go after you. The trigger-happy may tell themselves politics have nothing to do with their efforts to silence others. The Miller-Young petition framed the issue as a matter of safety. In a way, theyre right. In many quarters in academia, it is not safe to think for yourself.Email Debra J. Saunders at email@example.com. To find out more about Debra J. Saunders and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate Web page at www.creators.com..Recent news stories about General Motors its vehicles, its people and their questionable policies have created a new class of carowners. We could call them GM Gamblers. They are the millions of motorists who own and drive a GM product despite the likelihood that, at any moment, their vehicle could undergo a glitch that might cost them their lives. You might respond, Well, doesnt that risk exist no matter what car we drive? No car is perfect. No argument there. Car manufacturers (both foreign and domestic) have been sending out faulty products for many years. But in most cases these carmakers have issued recalls promptly, after the defects have become apparent. Early this year we learned that serious ignition defects have been discovered in two models each of Chevrolet, Pontiac and Saturn automobiles. If the ignition switch was bumped or otherwise disturbed while the car was underway, the vehicle might immediately shut down, robbing it of power steering, power brakes, airbags and other operating essentials. GM management has acknowledged that 13 deaths and 31 crashes have resulted from these defects, which the company had been aware of long before the scandal became known to the general public. A government study has found more than 300 other crashes that resulted from the ignition defects and the GM cover-up. As I write this column, on May 21, GM has issued further recalls, including possible defects on Cadillacs. This brings the total number of recalled vehicles to 13 million. Mary Barra is GMs chief executive officer. She worked 33 years for GM before being named to the top post in 2013. In April hearings before a U.S. House subcommittee, she testified that she had not been aware of the ignition defects until January of this year. Her statement is hard to believe. At the very least, common sense should have compelled Barra before accepting her appointment as CEO to ask Does GM know of any existing defects in our cars that could cause death or injury to our customers? There is no evidence that Barra made such an inquiry. Now she is promising to find the answers. Its unlikely that doing so will return the 13 victims to life. What major changes can we expect because of the GM can of worms? Will there be prosecutions and long prison terms for the GM executives and government officials who knew about the vehicle defects and stayed silent? Will motorists around the world turn their backs on GM and vow never again to buy a GM product? Could General Motors conceivably go out of business because of its apparent disregard for the lives of its customers? Dont bet on it. Although GM sales may temporarily suffer, and a few miscreants may receive sharp raps on their knuckles for their crimes, GM will be around for many years to come. Just like the major financial companies in the 2008 Wall Street crash, GM is too big and too rich to fail. Their lawyers and their Washington lobbyists will ultimately defeat attempts to make GM pay the full price for its wrongdoing. GMs largest partner in this survival-of-theslimeballs will be the American public. At first we will send up a cloud of outrage and sympathy for GMs victims, but that will fade. Somehow we always withstand the misery of others, as long as theyre just names in the news stories. Millions of Americas car owners have a long tradition of ignoring recall notices, even when the recall applies to the vehicle theyre driving. In the face of this It may happen to the other guy, but never to me attitude, the blame for further defect-related deaths and injuries will be deflected away from Detroit and onto the shoulders of motorists who deliberately refuse to heed the recall warnings that are issued. If you had the necessary cash and were forced to buy a new or used car tomorrow, would you buy a GM vehicle? I wouldnt. Until or unless GM management is somehow exonerated from this bloody debacle, Ill assume theyre a conniving gang of materialistic monsters. I may be wrong, of course. Time will tell. But even as I criticize GM, Ill state my belief that GMs shortcomings are shared even though perhaps not equaled by corporations, political parties, religious bodies, universities, military units, hospitals and a thousand other entities scattered across our nation and the world. Today, silence in the face of known wrongdoing is as common as the sunrise. Controversies such as General Motors alleged cover-up and similar outrages will continue until the day when whistle-blowers are encouraged, honored and protected for their honesty and bravery. But dont hold your breath until that day arrives. For now, mums the word, dont rock the boat, and everyone hates a snitch are the reigning watchwords. Even when they kill innocent people.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

It was a lovely day for strolling along the seashore. Men were sleeping on the sand, some of them sleeping forever. Men were floating in the water, but they didnt know they were in the water, for they were dead. The water was full of squishy little jellyfish about the size of your hand. Millions of them. In the center each of them had a green design exactly like a four-leaf clover. The good-luck emblem. Sure. Hell yes. I walked for a mile and a half along the waters edge of our many-miled invasion beach. You wanted to walk slowly, for the detail on that beach was infinite. The wreckage was vast and startling. The awful waste and destruction of war, even aside from the loss of human life, has always been one of its outstanding features to those who are in it. Anything and everything is expendable. And we did expend on our beachhead in Normandy during those first few hours. For a mile out from the beach there were scores of tanks and trucks and boats that you could no longer see, for they were at the bottom of the water swamped by overloading, or hit by shells, or sunk by mines. Most of their crews were lost. You could see trucks tipped half over and swamped. You could see partly sunken barges, and the angled-up corners of jeeps, and small landing craft half submerged. And at low tide you could still see those vicious six-pronged iron snares that helped snag and wreck them. On the beach itself, high and dry, were all kinds of wrecked vehicles. There were tanks that had only just made the beach before being knocked out. There were jeeps that had been burned to a dull gray. There were big derricks on caterpillar treads that didnt quite make it. There were half-tracks carrying office equipment that had been made into a shambles by a single shell hit, their interiors still holding their useless equipage of smashed typewriters, telephones, office files. There were LCTs turned completely upside down, and lying on their backs, and how they got that way I dont know. There were boats stacked on top of each other, their sides caved in, their suspension doors knocked off. In this shoreline museum of carnage there were abandoned rolls of barbed wire and smashed bulldozers and big stacks of thrownaway lifebelts and piles of shells still waiting to be moved. In the water floated empty life rafts and soldiers packs and ration boxes, and mysterious oranges. On the beach lay snarled rolls of telephone wire and big rolls of steel matting and stacks of broken, rusting rifles. On the beach lay, expended, sufficient men and mechanism for a small war. They were gone forever now. And yet we could afford it. We could afford it because we were on, we had our toehold, and behind us there were such enormous replacements for this wreckage on the beach that you could hardly conceive of their sum total. Men and equipment were flowing from England in such a gigantic stream that it made the waste on the beachhead seem like nothing at all, really nothing at all. A few hundred yards back on the beach is a high bluff. Up there we had a tent hospital, and a barbed-wire enclosure for prisoners of war. From up there you could see far up and down the beach, in a spectacular crows-nest view, and far out to sea. And standing out there on the water beyond all this wreckage was the greatest armada man has ever seen. You simply could not believe the gigantic collection of ships that lay out there waiting to unload. Looking from the bluff, it lay thick and clear to the far horizon of the sea and beyond, and it spread out to the sides and was miles wide. Its utter enormity would move the hardest man. As I stood up there I noticed a group of freshly taken German prisoners standing nearby. They had not yet been put in the prison cage. They were just standing there, a couple of doughboys leisurely guarding them with tommy guns. The prisoners too were looking out to sea the same bit of sea that for months and years had been so safely empty before their gaze. Now they stood staring almost as if in a trance. They didnt say a word to each other. They didnt need to. The expression on their faces was something forever unforgettable. In it was the final horrified acceptance of their doom. If only all Germans could have had the rich experience of standing on the bluff and looking out across the water and seeing what their compatriots saw.

I am surprised that Pinellas Realtor Organization and the National Association of Realtors would endorse and contribute $245K to Greenlight Pinellas. Purpose of Greenlight Pinellas/Agenda 21 is to promote light rail transportation and warehouse residents in high-rise apartments near rail station, much like New York City and other large metropolitan cities, and this in no way would be in the best interest of Pinellas residential Realtors. These Realtor organizations should be working to support the building and selling of homes and not apartments. Most large apartment complexes have their own Realtor acting as a leasing agent. Greenlight Pinellas is all about downtown St. Petersburg and keeping the Rays downtown, and at the expense of all Pinellas County residents. Hopefully, north Pinellas County residents will remember this when they vote on Nov. 4 and vote accordingly. Chuck Graham Pinellas ParkAcknowledge responsibility on global warmingEditor: I would suggest there is a way to eliminate the skepticism with which global warming is greeted by some, especially those who have elected to engage in the politicization of the issue. I refer mostly to those on the far right of the political spectrum who have allowed themselves to be duped into playing puppet for the American Energy industry. What those of us living in the world of reality must do, if there is any possibility of making real change before it is too late, is to wave the white flag where it can be seen by the power brokers in the energy industry, signaling to them they have won and we are surrendering. What we must ask in return is that these people agree to try and convince those they have been brainwashing for the last half-century that in effect global warming is a reality and poses a clear and present danger so they will no longer stand in the way of positive action. Next we must assure them we will pressure government to initiate immediately a comprehensive program similar to the Manhattan Project, one aimed at developing new or vastly improved energy sources that are both clean and renewable. These sources of energy can then replace the fossil fuels now being used. In and of itself this will not be good news to this industry. The pot must be sweetened and this can be done by passing laws, or if necessary a constitutional amendment, one that will guarantee those now controlling production and distribution of energy that they also will be in control of the energy produced by these new sources, and further that they will be allowed to fix price without government interference at any level for the foreseeable future. We must also agree to indemnify the industry from any financial losses they will incur as a result of this action, including loss of anticipated profit from their holdings in gas, coal, oil, nuclear generation, production facilities and distribution networks. Further they must be assured they will not be expected to be responsible for any of the costs associated with development of the new technology, and that at the same time we must agree they will hold all rights to this technology, including the right to license it to foreign nations. In effect we must give away the store! I think we would be amazed at how quickly the puppets would be induced to speak from the other side of their mouths if we took these steps, altering forever the production and distribution of energy. Or, we could simply tell the energy industry and their supporters, they as well as the rest of us, must immediately acknowledge our responsibility and accept and make the changes deemed necessary before our irresponsibility renders the problem moot.

Theres a New Owl In Town! 052914 Pinellas remains about steady in first round of FCAT results By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER The first round of test scores are in for the last year of the Florida 2.0 Comprehensive Assessment Tests. Pinellas County Schools on average performed about the same as last year in thirdgrade reading and math as well as eighth-grade writing. Pinellas students fell a bit in fourthand tenth-grade writing. Statewide, 57 percent of third-grader passed the reading exam, which is the same as last year, and 58 percent of third-graders passed the math exam, which is the same as last year. For writing, an average of 53 percent of Florida fourth-graders passed the test, which was up from 57 percent in 2013; 56 percent of Florida eighth-graders passed, up from 54 percent in 2013; and 64 percent of the states tenthgraders passed, up from 62 percent last year. Pinellas third-graders were below the state averages, with 55 percent passing the reading test, down from 56 percent in 2013, though Pinellas third-graders rose a percentage point to 49 percent in math. In writing, Pinellas fourth-graders dropped from 60 to 51 percent of students passing, which is lower than the state average, and the fourthgraders rose one percent to 55 percent, so slightly higher than the state average. Pinellas tenth-graders dropped from 67 to 61 percent in writing, coming in just under the state average. However, district-wide, there were eight elementary schools, including three that were deemed turnaround schools, that showed doubledigit increases in the fourth-grade writing test, according to a district press release. These include Melrose Elementary, Mildred Helms Elementary and Dunedin Elementary, with 14, 13, and 10 percentage points gained, respectively. Also, Tyrone Middle and Azalea Middle improved significantly on the eight-grade writing assessment, with 21and 13-percentage point gains, respectively. Additionally, two elementary turnaround schools showed significant gains in third-grade reading and math. Ponce de Leon Elementary jumped 18 percent in reading and 28 percent in math, while Pinellas Park Elementary improved 16 percent in reading and 14 percent in math. Im very proud of all of our educators and students who worked so hard to improve their scores, said Michael A. Grego, Pinellas County Superintendant. I know that our schools were especially focused this past year, expanding strategies that worked well last year. We will continue to excel and pursue instructional excellence, not only on testing days, but every day of the school year. Next year all Florida schools will switch to the Common Core Standards and no longer have the FCATs.12A SchoolsNew Eagle Scouts Photo courtesy of RON REGANDavid Grossman, 18, second from left, of Seminole and Harley Acuff, 18, third from right, of Pinellas Park, recently completed the requirements for Eagle Scout, the highest rank in scouting.

Moffitt helps Rays fans strike out skin cancerMoffitt Cancer Center will join the Tampa Bay Rays as they take part in the American Academy of Dermatologys and Major League Baseballs Play Sun Smart program to educate fans about skin cancer when the Rays take on the Seattle Mariners on June 8. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. One in five Americans will develop the disease during their lifetime. As we head into summer, its important to remember that even small amounts of sun exposure can be damaging, said Vernon Sondak, M.D., in a press release. Sondak is the chair of the Department of Cutaneous Oncology. If you are going to be out in the sun for any period of time, you need to wear the proper attire that provides sun protection and liberally apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. June 8 marks the 16-year anniversary of Play Sun Smart a partnership between the American Academy of Dermatology, Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association to raise awareness about skin cancer and offer prevention and detection tips to players, staff and fans. As part of this effort, the Tampa Bay Rays and Moffitts Cutaneous Oncology Department are providing free skin cancer screenings to fans June 8. The Mole Patrol, a team of skin cancer specialists from Moffitt, will provide screenings to fans from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. outside of Gate 4 near the corner of 16th Street South and Fourth Avenue South. During the 2014 spring training season, Moffitts Mole Patrol screened 378 fans during four games across Florida. During the game, the Rays will recognize the Salute to Survivors fan of the game. The honor comes with a VIP experience that includes game tickets, parking passes, autographed memorabilia, on-field passes to watch batting practice from behind home plate before the game, and recognition on the video board between innings.

As long as the weather holds, tarpon, snook, redfish and mangrove snapper should all be on board for this weekends fishing plans. Tarpon continue their migration along Pinellas beaches, pre spawn staging spots like the 90-foot hole at Egmont Key and Boca Grade pass will be loaded with fish for the next couple of weeks as they await the full moon to head off shore to spawn. Big new moon outgoing tides bring on some of the best tarpon fishing in the world as thousands of tarpon gather to feed on the crabs being flushed out of the pass. Whether you choose to join the masses in the pass or find solitude along the beach you should have plenty of shots at fish this weekend. Inshore snook, trout and redfish make up the West Coast slam, a feat that has been attainable most days as of late. Target mullet schools on the middle part of the incoming tide for a shot at locating a school of redfish and the occasional big trout and work bridges pass jetties and beaches for snook. Live sardines are the bait of choice and can be chummed up and cast netted along many of the grass flats just inside any of the inlets. Mangrove snapper are schooled up heavy over artificial reefs and limestone ledges inside of 50 feet. The snapper are easily chummed up and can be targeted both day and night. Live sardines and/or shrimp are top baits and a chum block dropped to the bottom will get them fired up.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com.

But when a mysterious and beautiful gunslinger named Anna (Charlize Theron) rides into town, she helps Albert begin to find his courage and they start to fall in unexpected love.MaleficentGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville Director: Robert Stromberg Rated: PG Maleficent explores the untold story of Disneys most iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone.

His original compositions and arrangements of well-loved pop tunes are infused with cutting-edge techniques resulting in a signature style which crosses over a full range of musical genres such as classical, jazz, Irish/Celtic, folk, pop, funk, blues and flamenco. Subsequent years of honing his craft led Shaun to the Winfield National Fingerpicking Championship where he won Best Instrumental song, second place in The Eddies Attic bi-annual songwriting shootout. He has also shared the stage and opened for B.B. King, Tim Reynolds, Robert Randolph, Taj Mahal, Switchfoot, G. Love and has even had the opportunity to play personally for Stevie Wonder.

Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Liebert spent most of last year working on two new, yet very different albums, Bare Wood 20022012 is a compilation of favorite songs from the first decade of music he recorded on his label. What makes this album different from other compilations is that he stripped the music down to the bare essentials; Flamenco guitar, bass and percussion. The keyboards, drum machines, electric guitars were removed. What remains is bare wood. Gorgeous rich wooden sound surrounded by a lot of space to breath and dream. The second album three-oh-five is exclusively acoustic and contains more electric guitar than Liebert has ever performed on any album. Lieberts incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany, he began playing guitar at 11 and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his Rock and Roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, he abandoned the frustrations and settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1989, he formed Luna Negra and he has become one of the most successful instrumental artists, thrilling audiences worldwide and releasing a catalog of classic recordings. Best known for his Nouveau Flamenco guitar playing style, his debut album sold double-platinum and is still one of the best selling guitar albums of all time. He has received five Grammy nominations and more than 35 gold and platinum award certifications in the U.S. alone.

Single occupancy $289 FEELING LUCKY? Tampa Airport to Atlantic City St. Pete/Clearwater Airport to Horseshoe, Tunica, MS X-Men: Days of Future Past is equal parts story, sound and fury Movie review Superhero films as well as action movies in other subgenres often fail because more emphasis is placed upon dazzling special effects and glittery staging than developing a gripping narrative. The desire to astound audiences with sheer spectacle overrides articulate story evolution. X-Men: Days of Future Past manages to defy the odds, delivering a coherent and compelling fast-paced plot punctuated by expressive drama, explosive action and even a few well-placed scenes of comic relief. Its quite an achievement, considering the breadth of this films ambition. Director Bryan Singer bridges the two subdivisions of the franchise in a story that takes place in two different periods of time. Singer who directed the first two films of the franchise, X-Men (2000) and X2: X-Men United (2003); and who co-wrote and co-produced the most recent film, X-Men: First Class (2011) opens the tale in a bleak, dystopian future. Mutants have been hunted to the brink of extinction by an army of robots known as Sentinels. In fact, human society isnt faring particularly well, either, from the looks of things. The audience learns that at some point in this timeline, the war against the mutants expanded to include human targets, too. A handful of mutants, hiding in a bunker, survive a brutal Sentinel assault thanks to Kitty Prydes unique ability to project an individuals consciousness back in time. Professor X, leader of the X-Men, believes that Prydes power may hold the key to rewriting history. The professor has pinpointed an incident which provided the catalyst that triggered the crusade against mutants and which supplied those who built the Sentinels with a means to make the three-story tall robotic eradicators practically indomitable. Turns out that Logan aka Wolverine is the only guy in the room capable of having his consciousness catapulted several decades back in time so, off he goes to 1973, hoping to stir a young Charles Xavier to action and save the world. Logan quickly discovers that Xavier wasnt at the top of his game in 1973. In fact, Logan really has his work cut out for him. Not only does he have to convince Xavier to stop wallowing in self-pity, but he has to figure out how to get the X-Men maverick-turned-megalomaniac Magneto to play nice long enough to reshape events. Singer pulls no punches as he advances the narrative through the fastidiously furnished 1970s storyline, delivering a marvelous period piece at the heart of his audacious creation, complete with plenty of iconic prompts and contemporaneous cues. Aside from the historical incidents crucial to the plot namely, the Vietnam War and the Paris Peace Accords there is a delightful meticulousness with which the filmmaker re-creates the milieu, from the expressive fashion and music of the era to various witty pop-culture references, such as a Sanford and Son episode appearing on a security monitor and a Pong arcade cabinet turning up in a basement. Surprisingly, the path of the narrative is difficult to predict. The script introduces several unexpected twists that throw the outcome of Logans mission into jeopardy. There are unanticipated revelations and the depth of the main characters is such that duplicity comes into play at a pivotal moment. In this double ensemble cast, there are five key players that soak up most of the screen time. At the top of the heap is Hugh Jackman, starring as Logan/Wolverine. Since Jackman first played the role in XMen (2000), he has achieved tremendous success as an actor. Had he not been successful in other films, he could have made a comfortable living headlining in the X-Men franchise. X-Men: Days of Future Past marks his sixth film playing the part (and that doesnt include his cameo in X-Men: First Class). Jackmans performance is adeptly nuanced as Logan struggles to counsel his own former mentor. The young Charles Xavier/Professor X is portrayed by James McAvoy, while Patrick Stewart reprises the role he played in the first three franchise films. Stewart gives audiences a calmly assertive, albeit melancholy, Professor X. McAvoys Xavier is devastatingly vulnerable. His imperfections make the character more sympathetic. Ian McKellen appears as the near-future Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto while Michael Fassbender plays the role in 1973. McKellens Magneto is saturated with regret and shame. Fassbender delivers a young Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Lehnsherr who is cold and manipulative. Singer wisely showcases the talents of Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as Raven Darkhlme/Mystique, in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Lawrence effectively depicts the characters internal struggle: She has been driven to violence, but the hostility and cruelty she exhibits are not in her true nature. Peter Dinklage stars as Bolivar Trask, the scientist who created the Sentinels. Trask is a reprehensible figure, a smooth-talking arms dealer with an unspoken xenophobic agenda. Dinklages performance is powerful and frightening. The actor forges a character capable of persuading pacifists to sanction genocide. Aside from the pleasingly coherent storyline and the solid performances of key cast members, X-Men: Days of Future Past also features plenty of breathtaking action sequences, including a desperate showdown in the dystopian future pitting scores of Sentinels against surviving mutants including Storm, Iceman, Bishop, Blink, Colossus and Magneto. During another scene in which Erik Lehnsherr is sprung from a holding cell buried beneath the Pentagon, the Time in a Bottle sequence in which Quicksilver shows off his talents is absolutely mesmerizing. One single complaint: Singer crammed so much into this movie that some secondary characters end up short-changed. The script could actually have worked as a two-film cycle, with an existing midstory cliffhanger acting as the endpoint for the first installment. Thats right: X-Men: Days of Future Past is so well executed that audiences would have heartily embraced another helping. As it is, it appears that the next film in the franchise (and by the way, theres a brief teaser for it at the far end of the credits, so diehard fans should stick around), X-Men: Apocalypse, will once again feature cast members from both X-Men eras. X-Men: Days of Future Past excels as a powerhouse game-changer in the superhero subgenre as it tackles the topical and profound issue of intolerance with the perfect blend of spectacle, story and sentiment. Its examination of aggressive discrimination, fanaticism and bigotry has obvious real-world parallels. Singer offsets the films darker elements with even stronger themes of hope and redemption.Photos by ALAN MARKFIELD/MARVEL/ TWENTIETH CENTURY FOXAbove left, from left, Sun Spot (Adan Canto), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) and Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) prepare for an epic battle to save their kind in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
