Fee to be charged for inspections By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo Fire Rescue will begin charging a fee for low-risk fire inspections, required in most businesses once every three years, as a way to pay for a new, full-time fire employee who will meet increased demand for plan reviews of new construction projects. Currently, the city does not charge any fees for plans reviewed in the unincorporated High Point Fire District, missing out on $45,000 last year. Charging those fees alone will pay for half of the annual salary and benefit costs of the new plans examiner position, about $64,600, along with $4,000 in increased operating costs, Fire Chief Shebly Willis told Largo commissioners June 10. So thats good news, she said. Commissioners, meeting in a work session, gave their unofficial approval for Fire Rescue to set the start of the fees in the unincorporated areas, at the same By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO In the new laboratory of the National Forensic Science Technology Center in Largo, a group of military law enforcement students learned how to identify different chemicals using field tests June 5. What is the active ingredient in C4? chemist Kirk Grates asked the small class, who would be taught fingerprinting, IED explosives, DNA collection, digital photography, cellphone and computer data extraction before their forensic training concluded. The forensic experts teaching the disciplines call it CSI for the battlefield. This is a growing field, explained Garry Ashton, training coordinator and military liaison for the center. We never did this in the past. All this intelligence information was there for us; we just for some reason never bothered to collect it.

By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas Suncoast Transit Authority broke no state laws in its funding of the Greenlight Pinellas marketing plan, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. FDOT Inspector General Robert E. Clift released a 35-page report June 2 detailing results of an investigation initiated by state Sen. Jeff Brandes. The Senator questioned whether PSTA expended public funds to advocate for the referendum included in the Greenlight Pinellas transit development initiative, Clift said in the report. According to Florida Statute, local government entities and their staff are prohibited from expending funds on behalf of, or advocating for, an initiative that is political in nature and pending consideration by referendum of the electorate. A referendum on the Greenlight Pinellas plan and 1 percent transit surtax is on the Nov. 4 ballot. Brandes asked the Inspector Generals Office to review about $800,000 in expenditures by PSTA for a Greenlight Pinellas educational campaign. The review disclosed no evidence that PSTA Greenlight communications contained text prohibited by law, Clift said. State funds available to PSTA through department grants agreements were reviewed to see if they were used according to laws, rules, regulations and provision of the grants. We determined that PSTA did not use See GREENLIGHT, page 4A See INSPECTIONS, page 4A See FORENSIC, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . .10-11A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-4B Faith & family . . . . . . . .14A Health . . . . . . . . . . .15A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .16A Pet Connection . . . . . . . .8B Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising VIEWPOINTSTom MichalskiCovering the police beat.

For the last three years, the Largo Kiwanians have supported the summer camp, designed to meet the needs of children ages 5 to 10 who are considered high functioning on the autism spectrum. The camp, part of the Clearwater Branch of the YMCA of the Suncoast, has a maximum of 15 campers each week, and runs for seven consecutive weeks Monday through Friday, June 16 to Aug. 1, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each week has a different theme. Daily activities can include swimming, sensory games, singing songs, and other activities specially designed for children on the autism spectrum. Each child has his own counselor-in-training, or CIT, a teenage volunteer who supports the child in their daily camp activities and also accompanies them on field trips. The CITs receive intensive training prior to the start of the camp season, and many find it so rewarding that they return in succeeding years, giving up their summer to volunteer at the camp. Some of the field trips have included Tampa Aquarium, Clearwater Aquarium, bowling, swimming, sailing and Kiwanis Horses for Handicapped. A Pinellas County school bus is used to transport the children at activities away from the Suncoast YMCA property. The weekly cost for a child is $125 for Suncoast YMCA members and $175 for nonmembers. For more information about this program, contact Vickie Shire at 461-9622, vshire@suncoastymca.org or visit www.ymcasuncoast.org Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization founded in 1915, and is dedicated to improving the lives of children through local Kiwanis clubs.

GREENLIGHT, from page 1Astate funds to pay for the Greenlight campaign, Clift said. Florida Statue also prohibits public agencies from spending public funds on political advertisements defined as a paid expression in a communications medium by means other than the spoken word in direct conversation, which expressly advocates the election or defeat, or the approval or rejection of an issue. The report stated that per a Supreme Court ruling, a prohibited political advertisement must contain magic words, such as vote for, oppose, cast your ballot for to express advocacy. The Inspector General found no evidence PSTA campaign expenditures violated the advocacy provisions of state law, Clift said. Communications on PSTAs Greenlight Pinellas website, advertisements and promotional items contained no text prohibited by law nor any magic words, which expressly advocate for electors to vote yes in the referendum.Financial reviewThe review found that FDOT had reimbursed PSTA only for operational assistance and costs of operations, according to terms of grant agreements. FDOT issues cost reimbursement grants. To get funds, PSTA is required to submit invoices and quarterly progress reports, including route productivity, passenger trip revenue, revenue miles and revenue hours. FDOTs District 7 monitors PSTAs services through monthly evaluations. PSTA is required to publish performance metrics annually in a newspaper. The authority must submit an annual audited budget. For fiscal year 2013, PSTA went above this requirement by submitting a more extensive Comprehensive Annual Financial Report prepared by an independent auditor for review by the District, Clift said. The review revealed that PSTA had actually spent $620,525 on the Greenlight education campaign, comprised of $239,656 in Federal Transit Administration grants and local funds of $290,569. Yes on Greenlight, a pro-referendum campaign funded through private campaign contributions, was included in the review. The inspector general also looked into comments that Yes on Greenlights logo was similar to the logo used by Greenlight Pinellas. PSTA officials explained that the Greenlight Pinellas logo was not copyrighted and other organizations were using its variations. Additionally, they denied any affiliation between Greenlight Pinellas and Friends for Greenlight or the Yes on Greenlight campaign, the report said. PSTA CEO Brad Miller welcomed the news. We are thankful for the very thorough review by the inspector general, and commend him and his staff for their diligence, Miller said. PSTA strives to be a responsible steward of taxpayer money, whether keeping nearly 200 buses on time daily or educating Pinellas residents about their transit options.

The American Society of Crime Lab Directors saw a need and provided $1,500 to start up the company, explained Communications Manager Chris Vivian. So we incorporated as a nonprofit, which cost $1,475, she said with a laugh. Over the years, whatever the needs were, we responded to the needs by adding that capability to our company. NFSTC started by providing DNA audits and assessments. In the early 2000s, they received grant funding from the National Institute of Justice, becoming one of their primary forensic-science training providers. We would train laboratory analysts, DNA analysts, crime scene investigators, Vivian said. Funding for that venture dried up due to budget cuts in 2011. Now, the center provides mostly feefor-service training and analysis, primarily to military clients, including the U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base, Vivian said. The center also tests and evaluates new technologies for laboratories and law enforcement entities. When they spend good money on equipment to use for investigating crimes if they dont have what they need or it doesnt work appropriately, thats not good for their communities, Vivian explained. The center moved and consolidated its offices as of May 27. Its new headquarters at 8285 Bryan Dairy Road, suite No. 125, is not far from its previous location in the Young-Rainey STAR Center. But instead of three different buildings, all of its administrative offices, training laboratories and equipment are housed in one building. Five other forensic and defense organizations that collaborate with the center moved with it: High Tech Crime Institute, Alakai Defense Systems, Primoris, Homeland Intelligence Technologies and the Forensic Innovation Center. Staying co-located with these innovative companies will allow us to collaborate and partner even more efficiently on government and military contracts as they arise, stated Kevin Lothridge, CEO of NFSTC. The center provides training that is as hands-on as possible to help new forensic scientists get good experience in their fields, Vivian said. While NFSTC does provide some on-site training, most organizations send their budding techs to the Largo training center, away from where their current forensic scientists are working actives cases. The benefit of people hiring us is that they would come here, they have fully access to all the equipment. Theres nothing theyre interrupting, explained DNA specialist Rob OBrien. OBrien worked with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a DNA analyst before joining the center seven years ago. He teaches all aspects of DNA identification in separate modules: extraction, quantifying, amplification, detection and data interpretation. A full training program will take six months up to a year to complete, and trainees have to have a degree in natural science as well as covered four specific topics in school: microbiology, genetics, biochemistry and statistics. DNA is the most highly regulated of forensic science, OBrien said. The training is customized to the needs of NFSTCs clients. Downstairs in the warehouse part of the center, Ashton was preparing supplies of chemicals for the next class the military law enforcement students will take: fingerprinting. Virtually everything has fingerprints on it if we know to protect them and then process them. And thats how we start finding people, he explained. Ashton, who served in the Navy for 27 years, acts as the centers military liaison, making sure the classes provided are current to the needs of the evolving battlefield. His specialty is explosives, including improvised explosive devices, or IEDs. Along with providing hands-on training in the possible materials of IEDs, the center has a few vehicles they use as mock crime scenes in their classes, including one which had been blown up to teach post-blast investigation training. Its all about putting that puzzle together of whats going on or whos been there, Ashton said. For those interested in the field of crime scene investigation, the center provides online courses: nine modules on crime scene management, evidence collection and documentation as well as four modules on crime scene photography. The 16-hour course is $129 and comes with a certificate of completion. Visit tinyurl.com/NFSTC-CSI. For more about the center, visit www.nfstc.org. INSPECTIONS, from page 1Arate they are charged within the city limits of Largo. Those fees are likely to begin in July or August, Willis said. The departments second proposal to fund the new position involved charging more businesses for fire inspections. Currently, Fire Rescue charges fees only for high hazard properties, such as gas stations, multi-story office buildings and schools, all of which need to be inspected on an annual basis. Businesses on low-hazard properties only need be inspected once every three years. Largo does not charge for those inspections, unlike several other cities in the area, Willis said, adding the fee would provide the rest of the funds for the much needed plans examiner. We tried this in 2008, and we had a very difficult time collecting the fees, and the fee was pretty high, and business owners complained. We think we have a much simpler process, and we thing we have a much fairer process, she explained. Under the proposal, the city would charge a fee based on a percentage of the business tax receipt, paid on an annual basis. Charging 10 percent of that fee excluding home-based businesses, kiosks, vending machines and multiple businesses operating in the same place would raise an estimated $36,000 in the next fiscal year, Willis said. Using 5,400-square-foot Proino Breakfast Club as the small-business example, the fee would amount to about $31 annually, or a total of $93 for the three-year inspection. A 9,000-square-foot Family Dollar store would pay $41 annually, and a 66,400-square-foot Publix would be charged $464. Commissioners agreed with the concept of the fee, but wanted to inform businesses of the change ahead of time. They asked staff to include a notice about the new fee in this years business tax receipts, which will be mailed out in July to be paid Oct. 1. The new fees, subject to approval in a public hearing, would start in 2015. During the meeting, the commissioners were updated on the pavement management plan for road improvements throughout the city. As directed by commissioners, staff presented condition assessments of the citys roads as well as plans to combine multiple infrastructure needs, involving multiple streets, into comprehensive repair and upgrade projects. The city now has in place a long-term funding strategy CorrectionA story about problems at VA hospitals published June 5 reported that Gov.

Commissioners also concurred with the citys updated Community Development Block Grant action plan, in its 30th year. The plan outlines the allocation of funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development almost $1.1 million as well as those from the HOME Investment Partnership Program, totaling $265,236; Pinellas County Housing Trust Fund at $20,000 and the State Housing Initiatives Partnership program, a total of $711,886.

Sen. Jack Latvala said the increase in staffing is possible due to successful efforts of lawmakers to secure funding for 28 additional state troopers in its $77 billion state budget for fiscal year 2014-2015. Additional highway patrol officers will be a great benefit to Pinellas County, where media reports last year described the impact that the shortage of state troopers was having on local law enforcement resources, Latvala said in a press release. To offset the shortage of state troopers, the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office has been using its own deputies for incidents occurring along state roads, even though those roads are outside of the countys jurisdiction. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri outlined the problem during an in-depth overview of his department with Pinellas County Commissioners June 5, 2013. He said during 2012, the sheriffs office assisted FHP 1,468 times, an average of 122 times a month. Each assist required an average of 2.3 people. The average time spent by deputies on an FHP assist was almost an hour and a half. Gualtieri told commissioners that FHP was understaffed with inadequate resources and not enough troopers. Thanks to improving economic conditions and our commitment to a budget that prioritizes public safety, we were able to provide enough money in the budget for these much-needed highway patrol officers who will help keep our roads and residents safe, Latvala said. Being a highway patrol officer is a very dangerous job, and we need to provide a strong law enforcement presence in the areas where officers are needed most. I am especially pleased that seven of the 28 additional officers will be provided to Pinellas County. We worked very hard to make this happen. The additional troopers will allow for quicker response times for commuters and residents who find themselves stranded on the side of the road, waiting for help, Latvala said. Gualtieri talked about that issue back in 2013. Local citizens dont understand that when they see a deputy pass by as they wait two hours for FHP, he said. The sheriff welcomed the news of more troopers. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office strives to make our communities safer every day, Gualtieri said. We appreciate Sen. Latvalas efforts to help secure the funding needed to hire these additional law enforcement officers so that our county can be an even safer place to live and work. Law enforcement launch Move Over campaignTALLAHASSEE Move Over. Two simple words can mean the difference between life and death to the first responders who work alongside Floridas busy highways. In an effort to bring new awareness to Floridas Move Over law, the Florida Highway Patrol and law enforcement agencies across the state have declared June as Move Over Slow Down Save a Life month. During the month-long safety campaign, law enforcement officers will work together to better educate the public about the law and the threat that ignoring it can pose to first responders. Our troopers are out there every day working traffic stops and crash scenes along busy highways with cars speeding past them, often just feet away, said Col. David Brierton, FHP director. And every day they face the real possibility of never going home to their families because someone fails to obey the Move Over law. Floridas Move Over law protects law enforcement officers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers stopped along roadways while performing their jobs. It requires motorists to move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle or tow truck/wrecker is stopped on the side of a road with lights flashing. If such movement cannot be safely accomplished, motorists shall slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Motorist should approach emergency vehicles with caution. Violating the Move Over law puts motorists and public safety professionals at risk.

TORRESLARGO Two employees from Largos solid waste division tackled and held down a man who reportedly was breaking into a house where a 14-year-old girl was home by herself June 5. Largo police got the call about the burglary on Lexington Court at 2:10 p.m. that day. A man had knocked at the door, but the teenager didnt know him and so didnt answer it. She then noticed the same man trying to break into the rear door of the home, which is inside a fenced yard. The teenager called her mother. While talking to her, the man removed a screen from the window. The mother told her daughter to get out of the house. The 14-year-old ran out the garage door and saw a solid waste truck manned by several employees. She told Michael Kowalke and Michael Gordon that a man was breaking into her house. The burglary suspect meanwhile climbed back over the fence and fled north. Kowalke tackled the suspect in the front yard of a neighbors house while Gordon pinned him down. The suspect later identified as Matthew Jordan Olver, 20, of Pinellas Park struggled against the men and at one point tried to stab them with a large knife, police reported. The employees managed to take the knife from Olver. Another employee, Michael Fitzgerald, picked it up until police officers arrived and took Olver into custody. Police Chief Jeff Undestad called the solid waste employees heroes in a city email explaining their feat. If not for their help, this burglar would have gotten away, he wrote. Olver was charged with armed burglary and two counts of aggravated assault, all felonies. Police pointed out that the teenager never answered the door, and nothing indicated that Olver knew the house was occupied. Olver has a previous history of battery and burglary, police reported. According to Pinellas County Jail records, he was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon causing great bodily harm in October 2012. Police beat Police beatPasserby breaks up fight with firearmLARGO A passerby with a legal firearm intervened in a scuffle between two men in front of the PetSmart at Largo Mall about an hour after midnight June 9. Largo police received multiple calls about the incident at 10500 Ulmerton Road at around 12:59 a.m. They later determined that Terry Smith, 53, of St. Petersburg reportedly was on the ground under a bench while Tony Lewis, 30, of Lakeland was kicking the bench. A third man, Robert Avery, 29, of Clearwater was passing by and was concerned for the man on the ground. He intervened, displaying a firearm he legally possessed, and ordered the men to step away from each other. Lewis ran into the PetSmart, while Smith waited by the bench. Avery called police and reported that he had broken up a fight where one guy was kicking toward another guy, according to police. He told police that when they separated, he had holstered his firearm. All three men stayed in the area until police arrived. Smiths and Lewis explanations as to how the fight began contradicted one another, police reported. Probable cause was not established to charge either man. Avery was trying to break up what appeared to be a possible robbery, and he immediately involved the police, Largo police said. He was unable to help support either Smiths or Lewis stories, as he only saw Smith on his knees by the bench while Lewis was kicking at the bench, the report said. Man arrested for abusing young girlsPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police charged a 71-year-old man with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of two young girls. Police report that a complaint came in June 5 that Alan Timothy McGann of Pinellas Park has molested a 5-year-old child who had visited his home. Police interviewed McGann at his residence and he denied the allegations. At 10:19 a.m. June 6, McGann walked into the police station and told our call taker that he wanted to surrender himself on charges of child molestation, the report said. Pinellas Park police officers talked to McGann who reportedly admitted to touching the victim June 5 under her clothing and rubbing her on two separate occasions. According to the police report, he also admitted that he had touched another little girl, who was known to him, four or five years ago when she was age 5, and again about a year or two ago when she was between 8 and 9 years of age. McGann was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Pinellas Park police said he could receive a sentence of life in prison for each offense. McGann was released on $15,000 bond June 7. Pinellas Park police announced June 10 that McGann had been taken to Bayfront Hospital on trauma alert after he caused injury to himself outside his home. McGanns death is believed to be as a result of his self-inflicted wounds and will be classified a suicide.Man arrested at marijuana grow houseCLEARWATER Detectives with Pinellas County Sheriffs Narcotics Division arrested a Clearwater man Tuesday evening in connection with a marijuana grow house at his residence on Keene Road in Clearwater. According to detectives, the investigation began in early March after they received a tip about a possible grow house. Detectives met with Grey L. Lopez, 41, June 3, and Lopez gave consent to search his residence. Upon entry, detectives discovered evidence of a grow house operation. During a search, 133 marijuana plants were seized and removed from the home. Lopez was arrested and charged with manufacture of marijuana and trafficking in marijuana and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Deputy injured in multi-vehicle crashMADIERA BEACH A Pinellas County Sheriffs deputy and two others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash about 2:13 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, in the area of 135th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach. According to investigators with the sheriffs Major Accident Investigation Team, the driver of a 2013 Toyota RAV 4 was stopped at 135th Avenue preparing to make a left hand turn to travel northbound on Gulf Boulevard. Deputy Alida Perez was traveling southbound in the curb lane on Gulf Boulevard in a marked cruiser and the driver of a 2010 Jeep Cherokee was also traveling southbound on Gulf Boulevard in the median lane. The driver of the Toyota RAV 4 began to accelerate to make the left turn and struck the front of the deputys cruiser. The impact from the crash pushed the cruiser into the side of the Jeep Cherokee. The driver and the passenger of the Toyota, identified as Donald Funk, 58, and Linda Funk, 67, of Dunnellon were transported to a local hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. Perez, who was on duty at the time of the crash, transported herself to the hospital as a precaution and for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the Jeep Cherokee, identified as Jack Buns, 65, of Largo was not injured during the crash. Matthew Olver

Legal teams from the county and PSTA have spent months hashing out the details of the agreement ahead of the Nov. 4 referendum. Approval of the 1 percent tax levy would provide a funding source for countywide transportation projects outlined in the Greenlight Pinellas plan. The plan includes an expanded bus system with bus rapid transit, increased frequency and extended hours and local passenger rail and regional connections. The next step is approval by the PSTA board. The interlocal agreement gives the county the authority to withhold distribution of the surtax proceeds and/or reduce the surtax levy if PSTA exercises its ad valorem taxing authority. It allows PSTA to pledge surtax proceeds against any debt or other obligation incurred by PSTA for the Greenlight plan. It allows the county to reduce or terminate the surtax if certain defined events occur. It requires consent from the county to undertake defined activities and provides reimbursement to the county for costs paid in support of the plan. Commissioner Norm Roche voted against the agreement. Im concerned about not eliminating the ad valorem, he said, calling it a red flag. He also is concerned about responsibility versus liability, saying the county as the taxing authority could be liable for bonds issued on behalf of Greenlight projects if PSTA is dissolved at any point in the future. The interlocal doesnt give back confidence, he said. Thomas Rask, who is running for a seat on the county commission, also said the agreement did not protect the taxpayers against double taxation because PSTA could reintroduce the ad valorem tax. Its a very strong agreement, Commissioner Ken Welch said. It does assure that the ad valorem will go away. Well be able to repeal the whole tax. It is really very strong. The interlocal states that if the state Legislature votes to change PSTAs Special Act to eliminate its authority to levy the ad valorem tax, sections pertaining to withholding or reducing surtax money would no longer be in force. Welch pointed out that even Gov. Rick Scott is now supporting transit and rail. He said he believed the legislative delegation also would support it now. Every part of the state is moving forward (with transit), he said. Welch said the interlocal agreement was something to be proud of. Commission Chair Karen Seel agreed. This agreement is very unusual in the state of Florida, she said. We did it to be accountable to our citizens. The interlocal sets forth a schedule of milestones, which includes such items as expansion of night and weekend bus service and the start of paperwork for Phase 1 of bus rapid service by the end of calendar year 2016. By 2017, purchases of standard and coach buses take place to increase frequency of service and completion of capital purchases and installation of equipment for bus rapid service. Similar milestones continue through the year 2024 with the opening of light rail transit. The interlocal calls for a review after the 50th anniversary of the surtax and each 20th anniversary thereafter. It provides the county with the authority to reduce or terminate the surtax when all projects are complete and debt is retired. The tax also could be reduced or eliminated if PSTA decides to discontinue projects, defaults on payments under a trust agreement, or uses proceeds for something other than the Greenlight plan. PSTA must seek the countys permission to make any substantial amendment to the Greenlight plan, to enter into any partnership that is materially adverse to the countys interests, to amend debt and investment policies or the trust agreement. Commissioner John Morroni said Congressman David Jolly, who doesnt favor the tax, has said if voters approve it, he will do all he can to support local transit. Commissioner Susan Latvala said the local legislative delegation also would be on board if voters say yes. We have years invested in this moving into the 21st Century, she said. Really, this is about leadership and having a vision about what the county will look like in 20 or 30 years, said Commissioner Janet Long. This is not for us. Its for our kids and our grandkids. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioner Norm Roche cast the lone no vote on an interlocal agreement with Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Coun-CLEARWATER The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County has achieved national accreditation through the New York-based Council on Accreditation, one of the largest and most prestigious childand family-services accrediting organizations in the country. Organizations pursue accreditation to demonstrate the implementation of best practice standards in the field of human services. The esteemed COA designation has been granted to only five other government entities in the state of Florida and only 47 other government entities nationwide. Plus, no organization like JWB, including Floridas Children Services Councils, has ever achieved COA accreditation. Not only is it rare for a publically funded agency to receive this honor, but JWB was expedited through the accreditation process, as COA reviewers did not grant any out-of-compliance ratings during the entire review period. This extraordinary achievement was made possible by the commitment and hard work of JWB staff and with the support of the JWB Board, Community Councils, funded partner agencies, and other community stakeholders, said Dr. Marcie Biddleman, JWB executive director. COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agencys performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organizations administration, management, and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards driving accreditation ensure that services are well coordinated, culturally competent, evidencebased, outcomes-oriented, and provided by a skilled and supported workforce. COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongo-Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County achieves national accreditation ing quality improvement. To achieve COA accreditation, JWB first provided written evidence of compliance with the COA Standards. Thereafter, a group of specially trained volunteer Peer Reviewers confirmed adherence to these standards during a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff, stakeholders and consumers. Based on their findings, COAs volunteer-based Accreditation Commission voted that the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County had successfully met the criteria for accreditation. The Juvenile Welfare Board was created as an independent taxing authority by the citizens of Pinellas County in 1945 who believed all children mattered and made investments to improve their futures. Today, JWB responsibly invests in programs with proven results and creates innovative partnerships that benefit tens of thousands of children and families each year. These efforts not only strengthen children and families, but also neighborhoods, communities and schools. For nearly 70 years, Pinellas County agencies who serve children and families and receive public funds from JWB have been held to the highest standards through contractual agreements and onsite evaluations, Biddleman said. It was time we held ourselves to these same high standards by inviting an independent body one of the highest regarded in the industry to review our organization.

Time is growing short to comply with terms of a $5 million federal grant. An extension will be required, if commissioners decide to go forward. But, commissioners are struggling to determine if a bricks and mortar clinic, offering full wraparound care is the best way to provide for the homeless. Wraparound care includes podiatry, pharmacy and respite. Area hospitals favor having a place where homeless patients can recover after they are released. Those with no place to go other than the streets, often have to be re-admitted for additional hospital care, which is expensive. A respite care facility would provide cost avoidance. Ongoing cost is a big issue. The federal grant would pay for construction of a 15,000 squarefoot facility, but provide no money for operations or maintenance. Latest estimates show it would cost about $3 million a year to provide the level of care staff recommends. Officials still have to solve the problem of how to get those who need care to a fixed location. If the state had accepted federal money to expand the Medicaid program, the health campus likely would have been a breakeven operation, Lynda Leedy, director of Health and Community Services, told commissioners during a June 3 meeting. A consultant estimates an annual loss of $872,000 in operating expenses without increased Medicaid money to pay for care of newly eligible clients. Cost to provide pharmacy and specialty care is estimated at an additional $2.2 million a year. Commission Chair Karen Seel would like to explore expanding the mobile medical unit program. The commission also continues to work with local agencies that are currently providing care to the homeless population. Everyone supports that there is lots of unmet need, but not for profit organizations have no money to support a new facility, Leedy said. Leedy has talked to the federal government about the probability of getting a grant extension to meet construction deadlines. Repeated delays in moving ahead mean the county now cannot be finished in time. Leedy said it was likely the county would be given an extension. As long as we can demonstrate progress, it should not be a problem, she said. Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard added that getting an extension wasnt a sure thing. The issue is can we afford to do this and pay for services, said Commissioner Susan Latvala. She suggested raising the millage for the health department to bring in more money. She said the issue was another chicken or the egg. We are all committed to the homeless, but there is not enough money, Latvala said. This is an opportunity we all agreed would do great service. Woodard said several related issues needed to be resolved with the most important being, what are we trying to do and who are we trying to serve. We went from providing a bridge to providing a highway to help people find services, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. What is our vision for health care? This clinic is just one piece. Commissioner Janet Long requested a report on how much money was being spent on indigent health care. We keep reinventing the wheel and forget about the person on the street who needs services as we debate how to move forward, she said. Commissioner Norm Roche concurred with Long and agreed with Latvala that a millage increase for the health department could be the answer. There are a lot of issues on this and we need to move faster, he said. I dont think we have another year to get this solved. We dont want to move fast as much as make sure we do this right, said Commissioner Ken Welch. We got here for a reason. Maybe it is time to change the model. Maybe it is time to hit the reset button here as well, he said. Dr. Claude Dharamraj, director of the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, encouraged commissioners to find a way to accept the federal grant. She suggested that a smaller facility be constructed that would meet the terms of the grant, but not over-extend the countys capacity to provide services. We dont want a black mark on Pinellas County as we have in the state of Florida, she said. She suggested a compromise. You dont need a Taj Mahal for $5 million. You dont need that big, she said. She suggests building something smaller at a cost of $500,000 to $800,000. Instead of turning down the grant, the county would ask the federal government for a smaller one. A clinic could be located at Safe Harbor, which is taxing Largo Fire Departments resources due to emergency calls for health care. It also would be close enough to serve Pinellas Hope. Go back and say we cannot use the $5 million, but we want a smaller project, she said. Dharamraj is not in favor of relying on the mobile medical unit, which often experiences mechanical problems. Care is always better in a building than a van, she said. She added that once the county had an operating clinic, it would allow them to apply for grants to pay for operations. If you build a building, you would be eligible to get money, she said. No clinic, no money. Dr. Claude Dharamraj

In a new spin on the event, HEP was permitted to ask for personal care items for the veteran and adult population it serves, including soap, shampoo, linens, clothing and other toiletries. In addition to allowing HEP to ask for donations from store patrons, Walmart itself donated over $750 worth of gift cards, as well as bicycles and other items for HEPs children. Once the Fill-A-Truck event wrapped up, Walmart continued to partner with HEP, providing regular donations of items such as pallets of bananas and strawberries, blankets, school supplies, and household items which were distributed to HEPs residents. Most recently, Walmart awarded the organization a $2,000 community grant to help sustain its meal service program. Store reps presented the check to HEPs leadership team in front of 20 guests from various Walmart locations. Following the check presentation, Jackie Dryden, HEP development director, provided the group with an overview of how HEP is able to maintain its model success rate, breaking the cycle of homelessness for thousands each year.

PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority began several new service improvements Sunday, June 8, including adjustments to schedules and routing to reduce transfer times, improve schedule accuracy and better accommodate all-time record ridership. More buses for Route 52, PSTAs most crowded bus route is top of the list. Weve wanted to make this improvement for a long time, but didnt have the money said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. Property taxes make up a large portion of our operating funds and the drop in property tax revenue from the recession has limited our ability to add service. The agency has lost more than $40 million dollars since 2008, PSTA officials said. Miller said that due to all-time record ridership and efficiency-related cost savings identified by staff, PSTA is now experiencing a budget surplus, which is being used to provide the long-awaited improvements to the Route 52, which runs from downtown Clearwater to downtown St. Petersburg primarily along East Bay/West Bay Drive and 49th St. Were adding five trips in each direction. It will definitely help with the overcrowding on this one route and were thrilled to improve this service, Miller said. But PSTA still has too many routes that operate infrequently and end too early to be reliable to our customers. Its a proven fact that increased ridership results from increases in bus frequency. Thats why the Greenlight Pinellas Plan focuses on a frequent network of routes and rapid services through all parts of Pinellas County including Northern Pinellas where the 52 doesnt run. The Greenlight Pinellas Plan for countywide transportation improvements will be on the Nov. 4, ballot and will ask voters to change PSTAs funding from its current .7305 mill property tax to a 1 percent sales tax, which will not be applied to groceries, medical items and limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase. Changing PSTAs funding method would allow for significant improvements to the countys transit service greatly enhancing transportation choices and options. Details of the plan, Q&A and background data are available at www.greenlightpinellas.com. Other changes that went into effect for PSTA June 8 were new schedules that more accurately reflect bus arrival times for the Routes 30 and 23. Plus, a detour around the Betty Lane closure in Clearwater on the Route 78 will become permanent due to the popularity and increased ridership along the detour. The new timetables are available at PSTAs Customer Service Centers, on board the buses, via mail, and in digital form at www.PSTA.net. By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER Allowing everyone to be able to obtain a drivers license would make our roads safer and less harrowing due to those who are driving without a license, said dozens of members of Latino Immigrants of Clearwater at a news conference June 9. Organizer Elisa Huapilla said thousands of people in Pinellas County are suffering hardship because they are not allowed to have a drivers license due to their undocumented status. Public transportation just isnt reliable in Pinellas County for the simplest of things, she said. Going to the store or taking the children to the doctor, taking the bus in most cases just isnt an option. We will continue to fight so these people can someday get a license. Businessman Juan Cruz said allowing people to get drivers licenses will have a major impact on safety in the county. It will definitely make things safer on the streets, he said. It will also help the police because a drivers license is a good form of identification. Unlike people who are driving illegally, those with licenses will be required to learn the rules of the road and will be required to take a test to show they know what they are doing. Lets drive Florida forward. With that last remark the crowd, which had gathered around, broke into applause and waved their signs with slogans such as Floridians deserve safe roads. Another businessman, Felix Mendoza, said the campaign to allow undocumented immigrants to get drivers licenses must continue. Were going to fight, he said. Families who are driving without licenses are putting themselves in danger. They are driving afraid and know that if they get stopped by the police for the smallest of infractions, they could get deported. Allowing them to get licenses would keep everyone safe. One theme that came up over and over again was the inadequate bus system in Pinellas County. People spoke of having to wait long intervals for buses in the rain and hot sun. Dave Kovar, who is part of an environmental group, which supports better public transportation, reminded the crowd that they can help themselves by supporting the Greenlight Pinellas campaign. Taxes in this county have been frozen for some time, yet costs continue to go up, he said. If we dont support Greenlight Pinellas campaign, then the bus company will have no alternative but to shut down some buses. They will start with the feeder routes, then without them, the middle buses will have to go; then of course the main line buses will end. There are people in this county who would be glad to see that happen. Kovar said the way to prevent that is to mobilize all the voters and support Greenlight Pinellas, which would see a 1-cent sales tax increase in the county, all of which would go toward better public transportation. That would mean there will be more buses running, in the evenings and weekends and during the day. They would come more frequently, and you would not have to wait as long in the rain or the heat. Better service means you would be in a position to get better paying jobs. Vote yes in the referendum on Nov. 4. Seminole Councilor Patricia Plantamura also is a supporter of the drivers license initiative and agreed it is a matter of public safety. It means more than that, she said. As our immigrants are being given more access to higher learning, we have a right to ask, what point is it to allow an immigrant to go to a university if they have no way of getting there? An organizer for the American Civil Liberties Union, Paola Calva Florido, lamented the fact that a bill, which would have allowed undocumented immigrants to obtain drivers licenses, did not pass the Florida Legislature in this session. We have to make this a year of public pressure, she said. We have to make our politicians understand that this is not an immigrant issue, it is not a Mexican issue, and it is not a Hispanic issue. It is a human issue. Weve all heard stories of human need as it pertains to getting a drivers license. Huapilla reminded the crowd that they can make a change in the law despite what happened this year. The November election for the Florida Legislature gives advocates an opportunity to inch towards their goal since they can be voting for politicians who can push the issue, she said. For this reason, a grassroots movement will begin to propel Latinos to get out to vote and hopefully set an example for other communities to form their own movement in their own counties to advocate for drivers licenses for everyone.

Fellow Lions Club member John Day accompanied Harvey as his guardian during Mission No. 17 of the Honor Flight program, which provides the transportation to World War II veterans free of charge. There were 80 WWII vets on the plane, and it was a very emotional and meaningful experience for all to visit the many memorials in our capital city, Day wrote in a press release explaining the experience. Harvey served in the European theater, going overseas with the 42nd Infantry Division in November 1944.

Military updates Community briefsProgram offers more accessible training for volunteer advocatesThe Guardian ad Litem Program in the Sixth Judicial Circuit, serving Pasco and Pinellas counties has announced significant changes to its training program for volunteers. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are individuals from the community who are specially trained to advocate for an abused, neglected or abandoned child. The traditional training model consisted of 30 hours in a classroom, which was sometimes daunting for potential volunteers. I think this new training program will go a long way in making the opportunity to volunteer a reality for many people, said Circuit Director Donna Rasmussen. The training will now involve three phases consisting of some independent study materials, shortened classroom time and hands-on field experience under the mentorship of an experienced volunteer. This new training allows volunteers the opportunity to learn in a way that has more practical application, rather than learning everything they need to know in a classroom and then trying to apply it. The State of Florida Guardian ad Litem Program to provide a new approach for training volunteers, who serve a vital role in the child welfare system, ensuring that the needs of children are being met and their best interest is represented in the court process developed the training.

Hercules Ave. The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program created to interest young people in aviation. Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.8 million young people in more than 90 countries. Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally, said Bob Flynn, spokesman for the event. We hope to build one-to-one relationships between pilots and young people, giving a new generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that exist in the world of aviation. Pilots at the event will explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how planes work and how pilots ensure safety is the prime concern before each flight. Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle, and their name will be entered into the Worlds Largest Logbook, which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It is also viewable online at www.youngeagles.org. Other activities at the rally include monitoring the aircraft in flight via the radio, touring the hanger where members of Chapter 282 are building an aerobatic airplane, and there will be snacks and drinks available with a small donation. Those attending the rally are asked to be at the airpark starting at 8 a.m. to register for their flight. Registration is on a first-come, firstserved basis and will continue until 11 a.m. or until the maximum of 50 Young Eagles is met. Weather will be monitored. Check www.eaa282.org for information and cancellation notices due to weather, which would be posted by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 13. A rain date is set for Sunday, June 15.

Advances in medicine, workplace safety, risk management and healthy nutrition practices in the last 50 years have vastly increased life expectancy in the United States. As a result, Americans are experiencing an unprecedented demographic shift: Four full generations in relatively good health living side by side. Florida is a model of the demographic reality the nation will face in 40 years. There are currently 3.3 million Floridians age 65plus living in the Sunshine State 18 percent of the population, and over 500,000 of them are over 85. Pinellas Countys age demographics are even more tilted to graying: 21.5 percent of its population are 65 or older, and 4 percent are 85-plus. How these four generations children, parents, grandparents and super-elders can live in harmony and mutual support is the subject of this Community Conversation. A panel of experts representing programs serving each stage of life will explore how, by creative action and effective advocacy, the four generations can leverage the assets of each age group for the betterment of all. The needs for health care, education, family services, employment, public safety and environmental protection are best addressed through the lens of our four major age groups, said Jack Levine in a press release. Levine is founder of 4Generations Institute. How we address the needs of the four generations is among the most critical economic and public policy challenges for the next decade. The Community Conversation, moderated by Levine, will include six Pinellas County leaders whose organizations serve one or more of the four life stages: Marcie Biddleman, executive director, Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County Eileen Boyle, executive director, Allegany Franciscan Ministries The Hon.

The Beacon also made the suggestion to Promise. And the final thought: Dont Drink and Drive. At first passing I thought that it was great to remind our teens to be responsible. But pause there for a minute. Think about it. Our teens. Our teens need to be reminded to not get behind the wheel after tossing back a few? Doesnt this message quietly read: We know youre going to drink anyway, so go ahead ... but just dont drive after? I dont think this is the appropriate pre-prom admonition, especially from our Sheriffs Office. Drinking under the age of 21 is still illegal, and those breaking this law should be treated as such. Perhaps then drinking at the prom will cease to be a foregone conclusion, and our children can be safe a little longer. Our sheriff needs an editor. The sign should have read: Dont Drink! Cyndi Foisy DunedinA positive result in Madeira BeachEditor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank Elaine Poe, Deputy John Luckett along with a good number of deputies, the city of Madeira Beach, our mayor and my neighbors whose combined efforts restored calm and peace to our neighborhood on 147th Avenue. The patience and professionalism exhibited by each one of you has had a direct and very positive impact on my family and my neighbors lives. Thank you Elaine Poe for issuing the clarion call on our nuisance neighbor situation, arranging meetings and providing helpful information. You made yourself available 24/7. I will always be grateful. Thank you Deputy Luckett and the Sheriffs Office for every call you answered and for your resolve. Thank you the city of Madeira Beach for applying pressure to the landlord to dissuade him from continuing to rent out to unruly, costly and troublesome individuals. The community, the city and Sheriffs Office all worked together to a very positive result. Well done. Robert Foster Madeira BeachForever Friends a success againEditor: On behalf of the Richardson, MacCollom and Ruzecki families, they would like to thank the Seminole community for another successful round of golf at the Fifth Annual Forever Friends Golf Tournament held on April 5. This tournament was started to give remembrance and hope from a tragedy. After the accident on April 10, 2009, the families of the boys wanted to give back to the community by allowing students to continue to achieve their goals, either through sports and academics. The tournament was the best way to reach out to the Seminole community and Pinellas County to gain support and keep the boys memories alive. Over 140 golfers were able to enjoy a fun filled day with good weather and entertainment, while they played 18 holes of championship golf. The tournament featured both a lunch and dinner along with live music provided by Carlos and Joe. A raffle, silent and live auction kept people in a competitive mood as people bid for competitive prizes such as golf packages and prize packages donated by local restaurants and businesses. Golfers and members of the community were able to view memorable photos and videos of Keith MacCollom, Nate Richardson, Joey Ruzecki, and LeShawn Smith inside the clubhouse. After golf play was completed and during dinner, the crowd and families received a surprise from the Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long who read a proclamation decreeing that April 10, 2014 as Forever Friends Day in Pinellas County. After the auction, the families and friends participated in a butterfly release and delivered a heartfelt thank you to over 300 guests and friends. Along with Seminole Lake Country Club general manager Norm Haglund and golf pro Bruce Chaleff, they thanked the continuing support of the golf course along with the countless volunteers that helped make the event run smoothly for the afternoon shotgun. The families would like to thank gold sponsors: the Orr Family, the Kenny Family, Clear Tech Pools, Relief at Hand, Helinger Advertising, Twiss Transport, and Pavimento Inc., as well as silver sponsors: District 66 Florida House of Representative Larry Ahern, Ferman Automotive, and bronze sponsors the Bluett Family, JLG and Associates, Angry Pepper, CM Management LLC OHanlan Family, the Hano Family and FedEx. They were able to raise money that will benefit high school students and athletes with their college and career plans; along with giving local children the opportunity to follow their dreams to play football, baseball, basketball and soccer. Proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit The Keith MacCollom Hoops and Heritage Memorial Scholarship fund; the Joey Ruzecki Memorial Scholarship Fund; The Nate Richardson Memorial Baseball Scholarship Fund; the YMCA of Largo and Play for Us Memorial Foundation. On May 13th, the families presented awards to the winners of the scholarships. Winners for the Keith MacCollom Hoops and Heritage Memorial Scholarship award were Max Mason, Sara Lynn Stiehler, Connor Frain and Tanner Cowan. Winners for the Nate Richardson Baseball scholarship award were Nicolette Meyers on the softball team and Doug Borgh, Kyle Frickman and Cody Miller on the baseball team. Winners for the Joey Ruzecki Memorial Scholarship were Connor Frain, Max Mason, Brianna Morgan, Liam Murphy, Haley Weaver and Madeline Zanga. The families hope to see the continuing support next year when the tournament will be held on April 11th at the Seminole Lakes Country Club.

The Richardson family Seminole The watchdogs that surround usEvery month my electric company sends me a letter telling me how I compare with my neighbors as far as power usage goes. The company has three ratings (and the phrasing I use here is mine, not theirs). (1) You are a good boy, Bobby. You dont use more electricity than is really necessary. Keep up the fine work. (2) You are in the middle ground, sir. You are not a power hog, but you could cut back on the kilowatts per month if you really tried. (3) You should be ashamed of yourself. If everyone consumed as much power as you, the system would collapse and wed all be plunged into darkness and despair. I appreciate being told where I fit in, re electricity consumption. All my life Ive been ruled by the nagging question, How am I doing? Not just on electricity use, but on almost every aspect of my behavior. I assume that other people are troubled in the same way. And now its possible for all of us to be graded and rated on dozens of living standards, not just on electric power consumption. Thats because we are now under continuous visual observation, tape recording, record keeping and other forms of monitoring. Today we have not just one Big Brother, but also hundreds of them. They can watch and catalog almost everything we do. For example, when you rolled out of bed this morning at 7:18, that fact was probably noted by a tiny gadget installed beneath your mattress (without your knowledge) by the National Institute of Bedroom Behavior. This shadowy group is able to tabulate everything you do in bed or in your bedroom. One day you may receive a monthly notice like this: Miss Clark, you go to bed most nights 17 minutes earlier that other females of your age group. You snore 8.5 minutes per night, and visit the bathroom 1.8 times. Your average wake-up time is 6:45 a.m. By now were all aware that our smartphones and iPads reveal most of what we say, do or think during the day. Added to that are our postings on Facebook, Twitter and the latest social network, Numbskull Natterings. But were you aware that your TV set can spy on you? The FCC, the NSA and the TV industry now have the ability to send the following notice to any of us: Mr. Cox, were troubled by your refusal to watch Fox News for more than six minutes a day, compared with your fascination with PBS and other left-leaning productions. We also note that you often switch on Al Jazeera Americas news reports. Dont you know that people in the Mideast operate Al Jazeera? Be careful, sir. American Grocery Snoops (AGS) is able to tell you this: Your April 2014 purchase of pork butts, chocolate syrup and Pringles exceeded the quantities recommended by AGS health experts. We suggest you balance this by buying more kale and sugar-free sauerkraut. The late-model cars we drive may soon be able to send us to jail. A traffic cop will pull us over and attach electronic cables to various parts of our car. A few minutes later he/she will hand us a printed report and say, Youre under arrest. Your cars monitors show that in the past week you exceeded the posted speed limits of Largo, Tarpon Springs and Lealman. Also, on March 3 while crossing the Howard Frankland Bridge, you were drinking from an open container of an alcoholic beverage. It was beer. Bud Light. Please exit your car. You have the right to remain silent..... The Posture Police (PP, or PeePees) also will be sending us notices. Mr. Arbuckle, our omnipresent cameras indicate that during the first eight months of this year you have developed a noticeable slump (8 percent) in your carriage, while walking. Your chin has lowered, and you have failed to pull your shoulders back as far as you did when you served in the U.S. Marine Corps (1970-74). We hope that you will address this problem immediately, if not sooner. If you think Im exaggerating, think again. Modern technology is gradually wiping out every vestige of personal privacy. The culprits are not just the right-wingers or the liberals. Its a host of snoopers and bright boys, many of whose only rationale is simply, We know how to spy, so lets do it! But you and I (the laboratory rats) will one day prevail. Well learn how to invade the snooper programs and scramble the data so thoroughly it will explode into chaos, allowing us to resume our unexamined, uncharted and joyfully unplanned lives. The hope still lives, and the dream shall never die. Avanti! Excelsior!Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.Police, press dont always get alongJournalism was different decades ago when I covered crime beats in New York and New Jersey. Reporters and cops always maintained a guarded rapport. Officers often barred journalists from entering their secret world, but if you were among the privileged few to be accepted into their ranks as one to be trusted than you received tips about arrests or ongoing investigations. Back in the 1960s when I launched my career in the news business police precincts had rooms set aside for the press. We were allowed to read crime reports from which stories were gleaned. We were invited to go along on drug raids, to sit in on interrogations, and even interview suspects in jails and precinct holding cells. Often reporters rode to crime scenes in patrol cars. In exchange the police expected a fair shake. Journalists who went out of their way to assail law enforcement received very little sanctioned cooperation. One colleague who decided to expose all the real or imagined gossip about police and politics lasted two months before being reassigned to the lawn and garden beat. Through cop friends I connected with entertainment and political figures. I was introduced to unsavory characters, murderers and gangsters. Once I shared dinner with a New Jersey police captain and his friend who just happened to be a shylock enforcer who broke legs and arms for a living. When the bill arrived I found myself short a few dollars. The bone crusher offered to make up the difference. I refused in fear of having an ear severed or my knees smashed for the five bucks I was short. (I used a credit card to cover the tab.) Todays relationships between cops and the media is more guarded than ever before. Once a deputy sheriff went ballistic because I leaned over a yellow crime scene tape to take a picture. Get away from there, he yelled. Another time a female officer insisted that I leave the location of an incident where a police K-9 dog made a happy meal out of his handlers groin. Florida reporters are not allowed the freedom of their peers in northern metropolitan areas. Official press credentials are virtually unknown in the Sunshine State, whereas press cards and auto visors are issued by law enforcement agencies in New York City and New Jersey. Some states even issue distinctive license plates to working members of the media. Walking into a police station to peruse police reports is now taboo. To speak with a cop within the confines of a stationhouse requires an escort to the appropriate office and another escort to leave the building. A small number of officers really do take themselves way too serious. Some possess a them against us attitude, believing that they really are new centurions and we civilians are mere mortals. Once while being ushered down the hall of a local stationhouse I asked my policewoman-escort what would happen if I suddenly ran down the hall and into an office. She didnt think that was very funny. None of this is to say that cops are not sympathetic about the job of the press. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office boasts the finest press relations division of all local agencies. A few police departments are not as friendly, for whatever their reasons. A spokesman with an attitude once boorishly accused me of peeking through a window where a murder had taken place.Police routinely decline to comment on breaking stories. They often withhold information and even the names of suspects and victims. And they become irritated when reporters circumvent their bureaucracy to independently contact neighbors and others to gather information for stories. I think cops are inhibited because of the bad press they occasionally receive. Then there are court decisions that have forced changes in law enforcement procedures. Now most media requests go through a public information officer or division. That is partially because some investigations, such as bank robberies, are investigated by multiple agencies. Information is withheld during ongoing inquiries in cases of sex crimes or juvenile incidents, and even to protect the rights of certain persons of interests, as suspects now are labeled. You cant blame the police for protecting themselves from possible retribution during trials, or civil suits launched by lawyers whose imprudent billboard and television advertisements have become so common. The police and press mostly do work in sync, and continue to shuck baggage from an era when some journalists saw cops as brutal, evasive and cynical. Too, reporters often are viewed as self-appointed experts who know little about police procedures and the inherent dangers. Misbehavior on both sides is not uncommon. As Police Chief magazine in its May 2014 story on police/press relations said, Working with the media is not complicated. Collaborating positively is a lot more rewarding than fighting with each other. Police leaders and reporters have a lot to offer each other. Each can help the other succeed. Together, they can really achieve that rarest of scenarios: a win-win situation. But best of all, the taxpayers benefit, from learning about the threats to public safety and what their law enforcement officers are doing about those threats. The ensuing free flow of information benefits all involved.Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. He can be reached at thomasamski@yahoo.com.

It is at Mangos Restaurant and Tiki Bar, 17120 Gulf Blvd. which is right behind DoubleTree Beach Resort. You can listen to tropical music on the beach. Right before sunset on Friday nights, the Sunset Island Dances come out and put on a fabulous hula show. They even do the limbo. It is a lot of fun. I know the summer can be long if you dont have things to do with your kids. Hopefully this gives you a few ideas for the summer, and you wont have to spend too much money.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

You wont hear any vulgarity or foul language. In fact, the comics, who also openly embrace their Christian faith, are known for keeping it clean. Its totally clean, said Pinellas Park-based comedian Juanita Lolita yes, thats her real name the troupes founder. But we dont want people to think we do Christian comedy. We just happen to be clean and Christian. Our humor isnt bible-based. She added, We do have joy in Christianity but our shows dont cram it down your throat. The four comedians who make up H2O Lolita and Bill Ohse, also from Pinellas Park, Lakelands Johnny Roberts and New Port Richeys Rahn Hortman each perform regularly on their own, bringing their squeaky clean acts to comedy clubs throughout the state. Being clean in a comedy club is already something completely different, Lolita said. When we perform, you dont even realize were clean because youre so busy laughing. They primarily cull their material from relatable experiences of day-to-day living. And audiences must be enjoying what they hear. Last year, Lolita was named Tampas Funniest Female in Floridas Funniest Comedian competition. Hartman was named Tampas Funniest Comedian overall in the same contest. Lolita founded H2O Humor to Outreach in January 2013. Eventually, her husband Rick Williams, a music and sound engineer, built the group an eye-catching stage display. He took us from being four comedians with a microphone to being a full-scale production, she said. Often, they bring their quick-paced act to churches whose patrons are more used to humorists telling longer stories rather than jokes with punchlines. When we get into a church setting, theyre blown away, Lolita said. Theyre not used to anything like it. They also perform for more mainstream audiences, like at the upcoming PAC show. But their shows still benefit the community. Tickets to the June 14 show cost $12, and part of the proceeds will benefit a variety of organizations, including the Pinellas Park Thunderbirds and Childrens Miracle Network.

MonastPodiatric Physician & Surgeon Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons F.D.A. Cleared DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 020614 Suffering in silence: Understanding and relieving lonelinessDo you feel like everybodys got somebody, except you and are you tired of seeing everybody else so happy when youre lonely and have no one? Although you may feel like you are the only lonely person, the truth is that even though Pinellas is the most populated county in Florida, the days and nights of solitude close in on many people just like you. Its not the presence of other people that can cure loneliness; its the presence of mind in the heart of the lonely person. Do you understand why you are lonely? Do you know what can be done to alleviate your suffering? How can you come out of the silence and into a life fulfilled? There may be several reasons why you feel lonely and they are different for each person, but some of the root causes of loneliness are low self-esteem, poor self-confidence, finding it difficult to talk to others (poor social skills), stages of life (new in town, becoming a single parent, recently widowed, relationship ended) or it could be just not knowing where to go or what to do to find friends or a potential dating partner. Whatever your situation, the pain of loneliness can be overwhelming. Id like to help lift your heart by sharing some ways to overcome these feelings so you can live in a state of happiness. If you didnt know how to put a piece of furniture together, cook a meal or drive to an unfamiliar location, one of the first things you could do is read the instructions, follow the recipe, and check the map or use the GPS. Lets compare curing loneliness to any one of these tasks. The first step is to learn about your causes of loneliness. You could consult a counselor, a pastor or even Google. There are several websites dedicated to providing answers like www.webofloneliness.com, for example, where loneliness is discussed in detail. If your root cause is related to self-esteem, confidence or social skills, you could check out www.amazon.com/ to find a book in print or download onto your reading device. You could go to www.audible.com/ to download a book to listen to on any one of these subjects by typing in your desired subject in the search field. By doing this, you would be taking a step toward understanding what is holding you back and developing skills that can lead you to alleviating your loneliness. It is not unusual for some people who experience loneliness to develop depression or anxiety. If this is the case with you, which came first? Are you lonely because you suffer from depression and cant seem to snap out it or are you depressed because you feel lonely? Do you suffer from anxiety that prohibits you from interacting socially or does the fear of being isolated cause you to feel anxious? Its a vicious circle, but I have noticed that becoming involved in activities can distract the mind, energize the body and make the heart smile. Depression and anxiety often reduces and releases the stranglehold on the individual. What if you just want to meet friends and you have no interest in a romantic relationship? Conversely, what if you desire a close connection? My suggestion would be to move in the direction of finding friends first and not focus on the romantic aspect. The greatest relationships form a basis in friendship first. If you have worked through your self-esteem or confidence concerns and are ready to take the next step, consider a few of these sources: 1. www.meetup.com You can page through this website to find a group that you are interested in joining. There are many activities you can choose from. Go for the fun of it, and you may end up forming friendships with like-minded people. 2. Sports: Did you used to like to play sports when you were younger? If you type your desired sport into Google and type your city, you can find various leagues to join. Have fun! Feel young again. If you arent as young as you used to be, you can consider coaching a youth group as an alternative. 3. Volunteer: Many charities need volunteers. Its a great way to do something that speaks to your heart and you can find friends in these circles as well. Do you love animals? The SPCA, Humane Society or Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary needs you. Do you like seniors? Many senior centers need someone just to push a wheelchair outside on a nice day. Do you have a heart for the homeless (Metropolitan Ministries, Pinellas Hope), veterans (Bay Pines VA Hospital), the dying (Hospice), children (Big Brothers Big Sisters) just to name a few? They all need you. Your service to others can be very rewarding. 4. Religious groups: Many religious groups have calendars full of activities to join for fellowship and fun. Getting involved in a small group can lift your spirit and help you find a life-purpose. The most important suggestion I can offer you is that if you suffer in silence with loneliness, reach out. Take one step at a time. Understand what is causing you to suffer and then develop a few new skills that can help you to discover a whole new life that leaves loneliness behind you.A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

With our water temperature approaching the mid-80s, mid-day fishing especially on the shallow grass flats can get pretty tough. As we approach mid-summer conditions it is imperative to search out those areas that provide good tidal flow, depth and structure. Structure is a relative term. A deep depression just off the edge of a flat or a deep trough cut through the sand along the pass shoals can both be considered structure. Some more obvious structures would be jetties, beach breakers, and of course, the many artificial reefs that line our coast. Some of the most productive fishing this time of year happens around our pass jetties. These massive structures will hold all kinds of bait, making them a natural stopping point for just about any predator that swims by. Current is usually always present and fish like snook and tarpon will stage up and wait for their meals to come to them. So free lining your baits with the current makes for a deadly presentation. Redfish also can be found working the bottom part of the water column. A medium sized pinfish or a chunk of fresh ladyfish fished on the bottom will let you know if there are any redfish around. Near-shore mitigation reefs provide excellent habitat for a variety of game fish. These shallow reefs can be found from 50 to a couple of hundred yards offshore. They will hold trout, flounder, cobia and tarpon. Using light tackle and small pilchards will work for the trout, mackerel and flounder, while bigger live baits will attract the attention of the tarpon and cobia. This is the time of year when we start to see lots of fry-bait in the water both off the beach as well as deeper flats inside the bay. Fishing around these schools of fry bait can be really good. Often youll find schools of Spanish mackerel busting through the clouds of micro-baits. Live chumming with pilchards will quickly switch the fishes attention to the bigger baits.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

She is a specialist team leader, an active volunteer and has represented PCS as a speaker at the National Water Safety Congress. Jessica Hoag of Seminole High School, and Erin Phelps of St. Petersburg High, were named Outstanding Health Educators.

Phelps volunteers with a number of community organizations, is a curriculum developer, and sponsors multiple clubs at St. Pete High.

The award winners were honored at a ceremony on May 22.County offers summer safety tips for people and wildlifePinellas County officials remind beachgoers to keep a few things in mind to make the experience safe and fun for themselves and the wildlife along the Gulf of Mexico. Stingrays are common in the shallow waters of the countys coastline. These fish typically spend time along the sea floor, sometimes partially covered by sand. While they are not aggressive, stingrays will sting with their tail when stepped on. To avoid a sting, beachgoers are urged to do the stingray shuffle, which simply involves shuffling feet and kicking up sand when wading into coastal waters, rather than taking full steps. Practicing the stingray shuffle at local beaches can prevent injuries to people and the stingrays. Another animal that lives in the Gulf, appearing around area beaches is the sea turtle. Sea turtles typically nest along the Pinellas County coastline from May to October, and hatchlings face many obstacles to survive. When nesting, an adult female sea turtle comes ashore, digs a hole in the sand and lays about 100 to 150 eggs, covering them before returning to the water. Over the next couple of months, these eggs hatch, and the tiny hatchlings make their way across the beach into the sea. Sea turtle nests are marked with wooden stakes and yellow ribbon by trained monitors. Disturbing the nests or the sea turtles themselves is against the law. If beachgoers come across a nesting sea turtle, hatchlings or a nest, they should keep a safe distance and avoid getting between the turtles and the water, as this may prevent them from reaching the Gulf. Other obstacles include chairs, umbrellas and other debris left along the beach. Beachgoers should remove these items after each visit to keep the path clear for nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. Pinellas County Coastal Management also makes sure to prevent or mitigate impacts to sea turtles while conducting beach nourishment projects. Anytime a beach nourishment project is taking place we work with permit holders at Clearwater Marine Aquarium to assure minimal impacts to sea turtles, said Andy Squires, coastal and freshwater resources manager with Pinellas County Coastal Management. Artificial light also can disrupt the nesting process, disorienting hatchlings and leading them away from the ocean. Many beachfront municipalities in Pinellas County have passed lighting ordinances. Beachgoers and property owners along the water should minimize artificial lights that shine directly on the beach to give hatchlings a better chance at survival. These simple steps will help make nesting season successful. Nesting animals of the winged variety also can be found in some of Pinellas Countys parks and preserves, and they too are best viewed from a distance. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, people should avoid entering areas with posted shorebird/seabird signs, keep dogs on a leash and away from nesting areas, properly dispose of trash to keep predators away and avoid flying kites near nesting areas. When the birds become aggravated, people are too close. Videos about parks and preserves can be found on the countys YouTube channel (PCCTV1) at www.youtube.com/user/pcctv1/search?query=park s+and+preserves.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:How to Train Your Dragon 2Genre: Action, adventure, animation and family Cast: Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Cate Blanchett, Djimon Honsou, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig Director: Dean DeBlois Rated: PG From DreamWorks Animation comes the highly anticipated sequel to the Academy Award-nominated How to Train Your Dragon, based on the childrens book series by Cressida Cowell. In the thrilling second chapter of the epic trilogy, five years have passed since the heroic young Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended an injured dragon and forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with the fire-breathers. Now, Vikings and dragons live side-byside in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragons paradise. But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers. Its much more than he bargained for, though, when Hiccup discovers that a mysterious dragon rider is really his long-lost mother Valka (Cate Blanchett) and that the peace between dragons and Vikings is threatened by the power-hungry Drago (Djimon Hounsou) with help from the dragon trapper Eret, son of Eret (Kit Harington). As Astrid (America Ferrera), Gobber (Craig Ferguson) and Viking friends Snotlout (Jonah Hill), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and twins Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig) and Tuffnut (T.J. Miller), lend their support, Hiccup, his mother and tribal chief father Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), must work together to protect the dragons they have grown to love. In the process, Hiccup finds the answers he has been looking for in ways he could never have imagined. Jump StreetGenre: Action and comedy Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Amber Stevens and Craig Roberts Director: Phil Lord and Chris Miller Rated: R After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. Opening this weekendHiccup and Toothless return in How to Train Your Dragon 2 Photo courtesy of DREAMWORKS ANIMATIONToothless and Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) make plans for their next adventure in How to Train Your Dragon 2. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they dont have to just crack the case they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.The following will open in limited release.

Niko lives for the moment as he drifts through the streets of Berlin, curiously observing everyone around him and oblivious to his growing status as an outsider. Then on one fateful day, through a series of absurdly amusing encounters, everything changes: his girlfriend rebuffs him, his father cuts off his allowance, and a strange psychiatrist dubiously confirms his emotional imbalance. Meanwhile, a former classmate insists she bears no hard feelings toward him for his gradeschool taunts when she was Roly Poly Julia, but it becomes increasingly apparent that she has unfinished business with him. Unable to ignore the consequences of his passivity any longer, Niko finally concludes that he has to engage with life. Shot in timeless black and white and enriched with a snappy jazz soundtrack, this slacker dramedy is a love letter to Berlin and the Generation Y experience.All Cheerleaders DieGenre: Image Entertainment Cast: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink and Tom Williamson Director: Lucky McKee and Chris Silverton Not rated Teenage outsider Maddy is keeping some dark secrets and holding a serious grudge against the captain of the Blackfoot High football team. When Maddy joins the schools elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she convinces her new friends to help inflict her revenge. After a late-night party goes awry, their plans take an unexpected turn for the worst and all of the girls die. A sinister, supernatural power intervenes and the girls mysteriously appear at school the next day with a killer new look and some unusual new appetites.HellionGenre: Drama Cast: Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, Deke Garner, Jonny Mars and Walt Roberts Director: Kat Candler Not rated Gene (Kevin Tighe) at her mothers funeral. Eager to get to know her father, Rachael later tracks him down at an assisted living home only to realize that Gene suffers from memory loss and thinks he is still a young man. He has no recollection of having a daughter and instead is convinced that Rachael is actually her mother. After trying and failing to make him remember her, Rachael eventually decides to go along with her fathers delusions by pretending to be her mother in order to get to know him. Before long, Rachael is visiting Gene every day, finding new ways to bring elements from his past into their present relationship. What began as a search for understanding has become romantic and joyful, but it cant go on forever.Ivory TowerGenre: Documentary Director: Andrew Rossi Rated: PG-13 As tuition rates spiral beyond reach and student loan debt passes $1 trillion (more than credit card debt), Ivory Tower asks: Is college worth the cost? From the halls of Harvard, to public colleges in financial crisis, to Silicon Valley, filmmaker Andrew Rossi assembles an urgent portrait of a great American institution at the breaking point. Through profiles at Arizona State, Cooper Union, and Sebastian Thruns Udacity among several others Ivory Tower reveals how colleges in the United States, long regarded as leaders in higher education, came to embrace a business model that often promotes expansion over quality learning. But along the way we also find unique programs, from Stanford to the free desert school Deep Springs to the historically black all womens college Spelman, where the potential for lifechanging college experiences endure. Witching & BitchingGenre: Comedy, crime, horror and thriller Cast: Hugo Silva, Mario Casas, Pepn Nieto, Carolina Bang, Terele Pvez and Jaime Ordez Director: lex de la Iglesia Not rated When a bank heist in the city doesnt all go according to plan, Jos and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, Jos has With a name like All Cheerleaders Die, its evident that this new Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainment release scheduled for VOD and limited theatrical release June 13 is meant for a niche market. That very specific demographic of hardcore horror aficionados may be pleasantly surprised by this little cinematic gem. All Cheerleaders Die is sloppy its plot choppy and its CGI lackluster but its still darkly funny, inventive and occasionally scary well, mildly unsettling, anyway. First, lets have a quick look at a number of horror flicks that have exploited cheerleaders: Satans Cheerleaders Even stars John Ireland, Yvonne De Carlo and John Carradine couldnt earn this 1977 comedy-horror flick a single Oscar nomination. Cheerleader Camp Also known as Bloody Pom Poms, this one was released in 1988 and featured 1970s teen idol Leif Garrett in a starring role. Head Cheerleader Dead Cheerleader This 2000 Slumber Party Massacre copycat slasher flick starred Tasha Biering who went on to have an uncredited role as a guest at Lord Cornwallis ball in the Mel Gibson historical actioner The Patriot. Cheerleader Massacre This 2003 slasher film is actually a sequel to the Slumber Party Massacre franchise. Most of these films have one thing in common: Female characters are objectified and generally portrayed as helpless, often unable or unwilling to fight back. Female characters in such films also are traditionally stereotyped as ignorant. The women in All Cheerleaders Die are fiercely independent. They fight. They are problem-solvers. They have strong, intelligent dialogue. Though some of them are victimized, they do not revert to the conventional victim persona. All Cheerleaders Die, billed as a comedy-horror, challenges sexploitation horror with a satirical tale of high-school revenge. The filmmakers writer/directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson conjure up as much feminist ideology as black magic as they tackle issues of teenage romance, loyalty and popularity. The story opens with a Maddy, a teenage outsider, filming her high schools cheerleading squad. She captures a shocking accident on film. Three months later, Maddy is trying out for the squad. Shes also hiding some dark secrets and harboring a serious grudge. After Maddy is embraced by the schools elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she quickly and clandestinely involves them in her plot to inflict revenge. Unfortunately, Maddys plans are derailed and she and her new besties find themselves in a rather grave situation. Leena, a loner whos crushing on Maddy, employs some supernatural skills to reanimate the bunch of them and send them off on a mission of bloody retribution. All Cheerleaders Die is a cross pollination of teen horror, sex comedies, action, non-ironic romance and straight up fantasy, said the filmmakers in the directors statement provided by Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainmen. We feel this mixture of tones and emotions encapsulates what its like to be a teenager in the modern world what with the barrage of media, information, and an overload of instant communication. Despite its aspirations, All Cheerleaders Die has serious problems. The build-up to the action is slow and perplexing. The plot is a mixedup mess that frequently loses its momentum. The film relies primarily on eye-candy and repeatedly abandons comprehensible storytelling. Too often, the viewer is left wondering what just transpired and how the scene fits in to the overall story. Too often, the very female characters that are supposed to be the antithesis of the archetypal horror movie victim suddenly and inexplicably collapse into brainless, powerless airheads. What is innovative here is the fact that All Cheerleaders Die strives to make a feminist statement by lampooning genre exploitation and delivering smart, determined butt-kicking cheerleaders out for vengeance. What is sad is that the film belittles that aim by clutteringAll Cheerleaders Die satirizes supernatural horror tropesMovie review Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe the screen with the very stereotypical aspects it seeks to satirize. On the plus side, the film features a zombie kitty cat. Even with its flaws, and although it lacks the mainstream cultural appeal of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, All Cheerleaders Die is an engaging, creative genre film that frequently has the power to charm its niche audience. Considering the films ending, a sequel is possible. Perhaps McKee and Sivertson will manage to smooth the rough edges for the second round.

OPENING, from page 1BWriter/director Kat Candlers Hellion paints the powerful portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution set against the haunting backdrop of the refineries of Southeast Texas. Obsessed with heavy metal, dirt bike racing and partaking in the occasional act of vandalism with his band of delinquents, the behavior of 13-year-old Jacob Wilson (Josh Wiggins) has begun to raise concerns around town, especially when it starts to involve his younger brother Wes (Deke Garner). While the boys father Hollis (Aaron Paul) loves his sons, he is still reeling from the loss of their mother, spending more time drowning his sorrows at the local bar and working on his damaged beach house than being an active parent. When the local authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, Wes is taken into custody by his Aunt Pam (Juliette Lewis), leaving Jacob and Hollis to fend for themselves. In Wes absence, Jacob becomes increasingly obsessed with two things: winning a local motocross championship and getting his brother back.I Am IGenre: Drama Cast: Jocelyn Towne, Kevin Tighe, Jason Ritter, James Morrison and Simon Helberg Director: Jocelyn Towne Not rated I Am I is the story of a young woman, Rachael (Jocelyn Towne), who meets her estranged father also brought his son along, for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles. When they decide to make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside, the group encounters a series of local wackos. Falling victim to a mysterious spell, they soon find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual. More colorful characters begin to enter the picture, including a pair of hapless cops hot on the trail, a defecting vixen witch and Joss controlling ex-wife, and the situation spirals further out of control, heading towards a jaw-dropping climax.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

The 30th anniversary of the tour that celebrates the biggest hits of the s and s kicked off June 7 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. The tour hits the Tampa Bay area on June 13 with a show at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $40. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Every night, listeners will hear their favorite songs from The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie, Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night, Mark Farner formerly of Grand Funk Railroad, Gary Lewis & The Playboys and Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. The performers will play numerous hits including Were An American Band, Some Kind of Wonderful, Devil With A Blue Dress, Good Golly Miss Molly, Mama Told Me Not To Come, Joy To The World, This Diamond Ring and Happy Together. During the show, the multimedia highlights during each of the performances will reference the time period of the music. Listeners can truly feel and see the soundtrack of their youth during a Happy Together show as they are transported back in time. The Happy Together tour began in 1984 with mainstays The Turtles. It started up again in 2010 and this is its fifth consecutive year. The overwhelming response and love for the music has endured, and now The Happy Together Tour enters its 30th year anniversary.The Turtles Happy Together by The Turtles hit No. 1 on the charts in 1967 displacing the Beatles Penny Lane and remains a staple on classic rock radio to this day. Although their biggest hit and signature song, its just one of their nine Top 40 hits, which include such popular songs as Shed Rather Be With Me, Elenore, You Showed Me and It Aint Me Babe. In 1968, far ahead of their time, they would release one of musics first concept albums, The Turtles Present the Battle of the Bands, where they pretended to be 11 different bands with different names, each providing a song in a different genre. The album showcased their incredible range of vocal talent and spawned the hits Elenore and You Showed Me, both peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan have remained plenty busy over the years with both The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie and their extracurricular music activities. The band has sold over 60 million albums worldwide and continues to please audiences with their fun-filled performances. This Happy Together Tour 2014 sizes up to be the strongest and most rocking summer weve had so far, said Mark Volman in a press release promoting the tour. The artists who are with us make us excited to get started and the audience is in for a great night of music and memories.Chuck Negron Chuck Negron co-founded the hugely popular, multi-platinum band, Three Dog Night in 1967. The group went on to become one of the most successful bands of the late s and early s with 21 Top 40 hits and three No. 1 songs including Joy to the World, Black and White and Mama Told Me (Not to Come). The bands first gold record was One, which featured Negron on lead vocals as did Joy to the World and many other of the bands biggest hits including Old Fashioned Love Song. Negron has kept the music that he helped make famous alive by continuing to perform throughout the decades. Dont miss this show, Negron said. Its magical!Mark Farner Mark Farner is best known as the enigmatic frontman for Grand Funk Railroad. His singing, writing and performing are the stuff of legend. At 21 he performed at Shea Stadium and at 65 the man simply wont be denied as his latest single Take You Out. Farners hitmaking is well documented with The Locomotion, Bad Time to Be in Love, Im Your Captain/Closer to Home, and Some Kind of Wonderful. Summing it up... I am proud to be suckin air and still able to do what I love doing, said Farner. Rock has a grip on my soul and our fans rally to the call and bring it out of our innermost being time after time.Gary Lewis & The Playboys Aficionados of the s pop classics have cause to rejoice with the return of Gary Lewis & The Playboys. It was the summer of 1964 when producer Snuff Garrett discovered Gary Lewis & The Playboys. By the following year, they had a song go straight to the top of the charts called, This Diamond Ring. After the second hit titled, Count Me In, went to No. 2, Gary and the band proved they would be a continued success. They followed with more Top 10 songs such as Save Your Heart for Me, Everybody Loves A Clown, Shes Just My Style, Sure Gonna Miss Her and many more. In 1965, Lewis was Cash Box magazines Male Vocalist of the Year, winning the honor over other nominees Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. He was the first and only artist during the 1960s to have his first seven releases reach Billboard magazines Top 10 on the Hot 100 chart. Still going strong, Gary released a new single last year titled, You Cant Go Back. Im excited and looking forward to bringing you more fun memories in this years Happy Together Tour, said Lewis.Mitch Ryder & The Detroit WheelsHigh octane, turbo, high performance, explosive, super-charged Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels do not need to hail from the Motor City for those adjectives to be tossed their way, but it certainly was appropriate that they call Motown home. It was Ryder and his band who served as the musical bridge between the Motown soul factory and the high-energy, take no prisoners rock n roll that would roar out of Detroit via Iggy & The Stooges, MC5, Ted Nugent and Bob Seger. Ryders hit Jenny Take a Ride features the explosive musical quality that has been there from the very start, with the way the introductory chords are chomping at the bit to swoop down into the double-time mid-section. Or how the thundering bass drum triggers the ecstatic roll that kicks off Devil With A Blue Dress On, which climbed to No. 4 on the charts. TOP FIVE, from page 1B Photo by ROBERT ALFORD/THE PRESS OFFICE Photo courtesy of PARADISE ARTISTSParticipating in the Happy Together Tour are Gary Lewis, above, Mark Farner, at left, and The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie, below.

Thats why its so important to strengthen your home to resist high winds. Some key tips: If your roof needs replacement, a new one can be installed to meet stronger building codes adopted in 2002. Shutter your windows. Glass can be broken by flying debris. Protecting your windows can keep storm winds and rain out and your roof on. Duct tape provides no protection. Check weather stripping and caulking around windows and doors, replacing if necessary. Check your garage door. If your door needs replacing, look for a reinforced, windrated model.

Must bring this ad.12712 Indian Rocks Rd., Largo, FL 33774727-596-9156012314Matt Facarazzo, D.V.M.with this ad NEW LOCATION Kennel cough is a respiratory disease that dogs can acquire by being in close contact with other dogs. Kennel cough usually involves more than one infectious agent. Some of the infectious agents include bordetella bronchiseptica (bacterium), canine adenovirus 2 (virus), parainfluenza (virus), canine influenza (virus), and canine distemper (virus). Having your dog vaccinated for these diseases does not guarantee prevention. Most vaccines help decrease the severity of the symptoms should your canine friend come down with kennel cough. Other agents known to be involved with kennel cough are Mycoplasma canis (neither a virus nor a bacterium), and Canine reovirus. The symptoms of kennel cough are either a deep, honking-like cough or a cough that sounds like the dog is hacking up a hairball. Sneezing, nasal discharge, and runny eyes can be seen as well. Most cases will resolve within one to two weeks, however, the dog could be infectious for up to three months. Some of the more complicated cases can progress to pneumonia. If your dog does not get better in a week to 10 days with treatment, have your pup rechecked. Treatments for kennel cough may entail antibiotics, antiinflammatories, and/or cough suppressants. Rest is extremely important when recovering. With excitement and exercise, airflow through the trachea and lower airways increase, which causes the irritation that induces more coughing. More coughing equals more irritation so the vicious cough cycle continues. Using a harness instead of a collar will help to relieve any pressure on the trachea, which can also cause coughing. The incubation time from exposure to showing clinical signs is from two to 14 days. Many puppies and dogs from shelters or rescues commonly get sick after they are brought home. This is why it is always important to isolate a new dog from any other dogs in your household for at least two weeks. With the emergence of doggy day care facilities, dog parks, and more restaurants allowing dogs, the exposure to these diseases becomes more likely. If your dog frequents these or dog shows, groomers, or boarding facilities, then it is a good idea to have your dog vaccinated. Bordetella vaccines are labeled for one year, but some facilities require dogs to be vaccinated every six months if they are going to be exposed to a lot of other dogs. Bordetella vaccines are available in injectable, oral, and intranasal forms. It is always good to have your dog vaccinated two weeks before he or she is exposed to other dogs. Getting vaccinated the day of boarding is not ideal, but if your dog gets vaccinated every six to 12 months, then there will be some immunity. Those dogs that have not been vaccinated in the past and then get vaccinated the day of boarding are more at risk for developing disease. It is important to note that respiratory diseases in dogs are highly contagious, and even the most immaculate of places cannot be 100 percent sterilized, since the particles are in the air. Kids that go to school get sick because they are in close contact with things that other kids are touching and are coughing and sneezing in the environment. We see more cases of kennel cough during our own flu season and during the holidays when a lot of dogs are boarding, even with the best precautions. If you must expose your dog to a place where other dogs are gathered, there is a small chance that your dog could get sick. Coughing should not be confused with something called a reverse sneeze. Many dogs get rushed to the emergency clinic because of this type of episode. To see what a reverse sneeze looks and sounds like go to YouTube and type in reverse sneeze in dogs. You can also see what kennel cough sounds like on YouTube. Many people think their dogs are choking when in reality they are coughing or reverse sneezing. If a dog were really choking then he/she would not be passing air and you would need to do the Heimlich maneuver right away to try to clear the airway. The trip to the ER may be too long. The American Red Cross has great CPR and first aid books that they publish for both dogs and cats. The books come with a DVD as well. This is a great investment and may actually save your animals life one day. Kim Donovan, D.V.M., is an associate veterinarian and medical director at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 16 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine.Help your dog and get the facts about kennel cough This months Pet of the Month winner is Silky the rabbit and her once-adopted son, Cecil the squirrel. Silky lives in Largo with his humans, Mark and Robin Hansen, human brother Christian, and doggy brother Coco the chocolate Lab. Silky is a 5-year-old Rex rabbit, and she was adopted from the SPCA four years ago. Cecil the squirrel was found with a hurt leg and tail and was abandoned from his nest. He was so tiny that Christian had to feed him with droppers for the first few weeks, and the family kept him in a cat kennel so he could heal. Once he started walking and eating better, the Hansens opened the door and put him on the porch, where Silky lives. At first Silky was annoyed by this furry intruder, but soon she would look for her squirrel baby and would snuggle up with Cecil. Robin thinks this companionship may ha ve helped with Cecils healing. Since squirrels are not pets, he only stayed with the family until he could care for himself. As Pet of the Month winners, the Hansens and Silky won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Al exandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

Currently, the city does not charge any fees for plans reviewed in the unincorporated High Point Fire District, missing out on $45,000 last year. Charging those fees alone will pay for half of the annual salary and benefit costs of the new plans examiner position, about $64,600, along with $4,000 in increased operating costs, Fire Chief Shebly Willis told Largo commissioners June 10. So thats good news, she said. Commissioners, meeting in a work session, gave their unofficial approval for Fire Rescue to set the start of the fees in the unincorporated areas, at the same By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO In the new laboratory of the National Forensic Science Technology Center in Largo, a group of military law enforcement students learned how to identify different chemicals using field tests June 5. What is the active ingredient in C4? chemist Kirk Grates asked the small class, who would be taught fingerprinting, IED explosives, DNA collection, digital photography, cellphone and computer data extraction before their forensic training concluded. The forensic experts teaching the disciplines call it CSI for the battlefield. This is a growing field, explained Garry Ashton, training coordinator and military liaison for the center. We never did this in the past. All this intelligence information was there for us; we just for some reason never bothered to collect it.

By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas Suncoast Transit Authority broke no state laws in its funding of the Greenlight Pinellas marketing plan, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. FDOT Inspector General Robert E. Clift released a 35-page report June 2 detailing results of an investigation initiated by state Sen. Jeff Brandes. The Senator questioned whether PSTA expended public funds to advocate for the referendum included in the Greenlight Pinellas transit development initiative, Clift said in the report. According to Florida Statute, local government entities and their staff are prohibited from expending funds on behalf of, or advocating for, an initiative that is political in nature and pending consideration by referendum of the electorate. A referendum on the Greenlight Pinellas plan and 1 percent transit surtax is on the Nov. 4 ballot. Brandes asked the Inspector Generals Office to review about $800,000 in expenditures by PSTA for a Greenlight Pinellas educational campaign. The review disclosed no evidence that PSTA Greenlight communications contained text prohibited by law, Clift said. State funds available to PSTA through department grants agreements were reviewed to see if they were used according to laws, rules, regulations and provision of the grants. We determined that PSTA did not use See GREENLIGHT, page 4A See INSPECTIONS, page 4A See FORENSIC, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . .8-9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . .10-11A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-4B Faith & family . . . . . . . .14A Health . . . . . . . . . . .15A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .16A Pet Connection . . . . . . . .8B Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising VIEWPOINTSTom MichalskiCovering the police beat.

For the last three years, the Largo Kiwanians have supported the summer camp, designed to meet the needs of children ages 5 to 10 who are considered high functioning on the autism spectrum. The camp, part of the Clearwater Branch of the YMCA of the Suncoast, has a maximum of 15 campers each week, and runs for seven consecutive weeks Monday through Friday, June 16 to Aug. 1, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each week has a different theme. Daily activities can include swimming, sensory games, singing songs, and other activities specially designed for children on the autism spectrum. Each child has his own counselor-in-training, or CIT, a teenage volunteer who supports the child in their daily camp activities and also accompanies them on field trips. The CITs receive intensive training prior to the start of the camp season, and many find it so rewarding that they return in succeeding years, giving up their summer to volunteer at the camp. Some of the field trips have included Tampa Aquarium, Clearwater Aquarium, bowling, swimming, sailing and Kiwanis Horses for Handicapped. A Pinellas County school bus is used to transport the children at activities away from the Suncoast YMCA property. The weekly cost for a child is $125 for Suncoast YMCA members and $175 for nonmembers.

GREENLIGHT, from page 1Astate funds to pay for the Greenlight campaign, Clift said. Florida Statue also prohibits public agencies from spending public funds on political advertisements defined as a paid expression in a communications medium by means other than the spoken word in direct conversation, which expressly advocates the election or defeat, or the approval or rejection of an issue. The report stated that per a Supreme Court ruling, a prohibited political advertisement must contain magic words, such as vote for, oppose, cast your ballot for to express advocacy. The Inspector General found no evidence PSTA campaign expenditures violated the advocacy provisions of state law, Clift said. Communications on PSTAs Greenlight Pinellas website, advertisements and promotional items contained no text prohibited by law nor any magic words, which expressly advocate for electors to vote yes in the referendum.Financial reviewThe review found that FDOT had reimbursed PSTA only for operational assistance and costs of operations, according to terms of grant agreements. FDOT issues cost reimbursement grants. To get funds, PSTA is required to submit invoices and quarterly progress reports, including route productivity, passenger trip revenue, revenue miles and revenue hours. FDOTs District 7 monitors PSTAs services through monthly evaluations. PSTA is required to publish performance metrics annually in a newspaper. The authority must submit an annual audited budget. For fiscal year 2013, PSTA went above this requirement by submitting a more extensive Comprehensive Annual Financial Report prepared by an independent auditor for review by the District, Clift said. The review revealed that PSTA had actually spent $620,525 on the Greenlight education campaign, comprised of $239,656 in Federal Transit Administration grants and local funds of $290,569. Yes on Greenlight, a pro-referendum campaign funded through private campaign contributions, was included in the review. The inspector general also looked into comments that Yes on Greenlights logo was similar to the logo used by Greenlight Pinellas. PSTA officials explained that the Greenlight Pinellas logo was not copyrighted and other organizations were using its variations. Additionally, they denied any affiliation between Greenlight Pinellas and Friends for Greenlight or the Yes on Greenlight campaign, the report said. PSTA CEO Brad Miller welcomed the news. We are thankful for the very thorough review by the inspector general, and commend him and his staff for their diligence, Miller said. PSTA strives to be a responsible steward of taxpayer money, whether keeping nearly 200 buses on time daily or educating Pinellas residents about their transit options.

The American Society of Crime Lab Directors saw a need and provided $1,500 to start up the company, explained Communications Manager Chris Vivian. So we incorporated as a nonprofit, which cost $1,475, she said with a laugh. Over the years, whatever the needs were, we responded to the needs by adding that capability to our company. NFSTC started by providing DNA audits and assessments. In the early 2000s, they received grant funding from the National Institute of Justice, becoming one of their primary forensic-science training providers. We would train laboratory analysts, DNA analysts, crime scene investigators, Vivian said. Funding for that venture dried up due to budget cuts in 2011. Now, the center provides mostly feefor-service training and analysis, primarily to military clients, including the U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base, Vivian said. The center also tests and evaluates new technologies for laboratories and law enforcement entities. When they spend good money on equipment to use for investigating crimes if they dont have what they need or it doesnt work appropriately, thats not good for their communities, Vivian explained. The center moved and consolidated its offices as of May 27. Its new headquarters at 8285 Bryan Dairy Road, suite No. 125, is not far from its previous location in the Young-Rainey STAR Center. But instead of three different buildings, all of its administrative offices, training laboratories and equipment are housed in one building. Five other forensic and defense organizations that collaborate with the center moved with it: High Tech Crime Institute, Alakai Defense Systems, Primoris, Homeland Intelligence Technologies and the Forensic Innovation Center. Staying co-located with these innovative companies will allow us to collaborate and partner even more efficiently on government and military contracts as they arise, stated Kevin Lothridge, CEO of NFSTC. The center provides training that is as hands-on as possible to help new forensic scientists get good experience in their fields, Vivian said. While NFSTC does provide some on-site training, most organizations send their budding techs to the Largo training center, away from where their current forensic scientists are working actives cases. The benefit of people hiring us is that they would come here, they have fully access to all the equipment. Theres nothing theyre interrupting, explained DNA specialist Rob OBrien. OBrien worked with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a DNA analyst before joining the center seven years ago. He teaches all aspects of DNA identification in separate modules: extraction, quantifying, amplification, detection and data interpretation. A full training program will take six months up to a year to complete, and trainees have to have a degree in natural science as well as covered four specific topics in school: microbiology, genetics, biochemistry and statistics. DNA is the most highly regulated of forensic science, OBrien said. The training is customized to the needs of NFSTCs clients. Downstairs in the warehouse part of the center, Ashton was preparing supplies of chemicals for the next class the military law enforcement students will take: fingerprinting. Virtually everything has fingerprints on it if we know to protect them and then process them. And thats how we start finding people, he explained. Ashton, who served in the Navy for 27 years, acts as the centers military liaison, making sure the classes provided are current to the needs of the evolving battlefield. His specialty is explosives, including improvised explosive devices, or IEDs. Along with providing hands-on training in the possible materials of IEDs, the center has a few vehicles they use as mock crime scenes in their classes, including one which had been blown up to teach post-blast investigation training. Its all about putting that puzzle together of whats going on or whos been there, Ashton said. For those interested in the field of crime scene investigation, the center provides online courses: nine modules on crime scene management, evidence collection and documentation as well as four modules on crime scene photography. The 16-hour course is $129 and comes with a certificate of completion. Visit tinyurl.com/NFSTC-CSI. For more about the center, visit www.nfstc.org. INSPECTIONS, from page 1Arate they are charged within the city limits of Largo. Those fees are likely to begin in July or August, Willis said. The departments second proposal to fund the new position involved charging more businesses for fire inspections. Currently, Fire Rescue charges fees only for high hazard properties, such as gas stations, multi-story office buildings and schools, all of which need to be inspected on an annual basis. Businesses on low-hazard properties only need be inspected once every three years. Largo does not charge for those inspections, unlike several other cities in the area, Willis said, adding the fee would provide the rest of the funds for the much needed plans examiner. We tried this in 2008, and we had a very difficult time collecting the fees, and the fee was pretty high, and business owners complained. We think we have a much simpler process, and we thing we have a much fairer process, she explained. Under the proposal, the city would charge a fee based on a percentage of the business tax receipt, paid on an annual basis. Charging 10 percent of that fee excluding home-based businesses, kiosks, vending machines and multiple businesses operating in the same place would raise an estimated $36,000 in the next fiscal year, Willis said. Using 5,400-square-foot Proino Breakfast Club as the small-business example, the fee would amount to about $31 annually, or a total of $93 for the three-year inspection. A 9,000-square-foot Family Dollar store would pay $41 annually, and a 66,400-square-foot Publix would be charged $464. Commissioners agreed with the concept of the fee, but wanted to inform businesses of the change ahead of time. They asked staff to include a notice about the new fee in this years business tax receipts, which will be mailed out in July to be paid Oct. 1. The new fees, subject to approval in a public hearing, would start in 2015. During the meeting, the commissioners were updated on the pavement management plan for road improvements throughout the city. As directed by commissioners, staff presented condition assessments of the citys roads as well as plans to combine multiple infrastructure needs, involving multiple streets, into comprehensive repair and upgrade projects. The city now has in place a long-term funding strategy CorrectionA story about problems at VA hospitals published June 5 reported that Gov. Rick Scott had referred to a veteran dying in April from misdiagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer. Scott was actually referring to 76-year-old Horace Lalley of St. Petersburg, who served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Lalley died Oct. 23 from bladder cancer.Photos by JULIANA A.

Commissioners also concurred with the citys updated Community Development Block Grant action plan, in its 30th year. The plan outlines the allocation of funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development almost $1.1 million as well as those from the HOME Investment Partnership Program, totaling $265,236; Pinellas County Housing Trust Fund at $20,000 and the State Housing Initiatives Partnership program, a total of $711,886.

Sen. Jack Latvala said the increase in staffing is possible due to successful efforts of lawmakers to secure funding for 28 additional state troopers in its $77 billion state budget for fiscal year 2014-2015. Additional highway patrol officers will be a great benefit to Pinellas County, where media reports last year described the impact that the shortage of state troopers was having on local law enforcement resources, Latvala said in a press release. To offset the shortage of state troopers, the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office has been using its own deputies for incidents occurring along state roads, even though those roads are outside of the countys jurisdiction. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri outlined the problem during an in-depth overview of his department with Pinellas County Commissioners June 5, 2013. He said during 2012, the sheriffs office assisted FHP 1,468 times, an average of 122 times a month. Each assist required an average of 2.3 people. The average time spent by deputies on an FHP assist was almost an hour and a half. Gualtieri told commissioners that FHP was understaffed with inadequate resources and not enough troopers. Thanks to improving economic conditions and our commitment to a budget that prioritizes public safety, we were able to provide enough money in the budget for these much-needed highway patrol officers who will help keep our roads and residents safe, Latvala said. Being a highway patrol officer is a very dangerous job, and we need to provide a strong law enforcement presence in the areas where officers are needed most. I am especially pleased that seven of the 28 additional officers will be provided to Pinellas County. We worked very hard to make this happen. The additional troopers will allow for quicker response times for commuters and residents who find themselves stranded on the side of the road, waiting for help, Latvala said. Gualtieri talked about that issue back in 2013. Local citizens dont understand that when they see a deputy pass by as they wait two hours for FHP, he said. The sheriff welcomed the news of more troopers. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office strives to make our communities safer every day, Gualtieri said. We appreciate Sen. Latvalas efforts to help secure the funding needed to hire these additional law enforcement officers so that our county can be an even safer place to live and work. Law enforcement launch Move Over campaignTALLAHASSEE Move Over. Two simple words can mean the difference between life and death to the first responders who work alongside Floridas busy highways. In an effort to bring new awareness to Floridas Move Over law, the Florida Highway Patrol and law enforcement agencies across the state have declared June as Move Over Slow Down Save a Life month. During the month-long safety campaign, law enforcement officers will work together to better educate the public about the law and the threat that ignoring it can pose to first responders. Our troopers are out there every day working traffic stops and crash scenes along busy highways with cars speeding past them, often just feet away, said Col. David Brierton, FHP director. And every day they face the real possibility of never going home to their families because someone fails to obey the Move Over law. Floridas Move Over law protects law enforcement officers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers stopped along roadways while performing their jobs. It requires motorists to move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle or tow truck/wrecker is stopped on the side of a road with lights flashing. If such movement cannot be safely accomplished, motorists shall slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Motorist should approach emergency vehicles with caution. Violating the Move Over law puts motorists and public safety professionals at risk.

TORRESLARGO Two employees from Largos solid waste division tackled and held down a man who reportedly was breaking into a house where a 14-year-old girl was home by herself June 5. Largo police got the call about the burglary on Lexington Court at 2:10 p.m. that day. A man had knocked at the door, but the teenager didnt know him and so didnt answer it. She then noticed the same man trying to break into the rear door of the home, which is inside a fenced yard. The teenager called her mother. While talking to her, the man removed a screen from the window. The mother told her daughter to get out of the house. The 14-year-old ran out the garage door and saw a solid waste truck manned by several employees. She told Michael Kowalke and Michael Gordon that a man was breaking into her house. The burglary suspect meanwhile climbed back over the fence and fled north. Kowalke tackled the suspect in the front yard of a neighbors house while Gordon pinned him down. The suspect later identified as Matthew Jordan Olver, 20, of Pinellas Park struggled against the men and at one point tried to stab them with a large knife, police reported. The employees managed to take the knife from Olver. Another employee, Michael Fitzgerald, picked it up until police officers arrived and took Olver into custody. Police Chief Jeff Undestad called the solid waste employees heroes in a city email explaining their feat. If not for their help, this burglar would have gotten away, he wrote. Olver was charged with armed burglary and two counts of aggravated assault, all felonies. Police pointed out that the teenager never answered the door, and nothing indicated that Olver knew the house was occupied. Olver has a previous history of battery and burglary, police reported. According to Pinellas County Jail records, he was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon causing great bodily harm in October 2012. Police beat Police beatPasserby breaks up fight with firearmLARGO A passerby with a legal firearm intervened in a scuffle between two men in front of the PetSmart at Largo Mall about an hour after midnight June 9. Largo police received multiple calls about the incident at 10500 Ulmerton Road at around 12:59 a.m. They later determined that Terry Smith, 53, of St. Petersburg reportedly was on the ground under a bench while Tony Lewis, 30, of Lakeland was kicking the bench. A third man, Robert Avery, 29, of Clearwater was passing by and was concerned for the man on the ground. He intervened, displaying a firearm he legally possessed, and ordered the men to step away from each other. Lewis ran into the PetSmart, while Smith waited by the bench. Avery called police and reported that he had broken up a fight where one guy was kicking toward another guy, according to police. He told police that when they separated, he had holstered his firearm. All three men stayed in the area until police arrived. Smiths and Lewis explanations as to how the fight began contradicted one another, police reported. Probable cause was not established to charge either man. Avery was trying to break up what appeared to be a possible robbery, and he immediately involved the police, Largo police said. He was unable to help support either Smiths or Lewis stories, as he only saw Smith on his knees by the bench while Lewis was kicking at the bench, the report said. Man arrested for abusing young girlsPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police charged a 71-year-old man with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of two young girls. Police report that a complaint came in June 5 that Alan Timothy McGann of Pinellas Park has molested a 5-year-old child who had visited his home. Police interviewed McGann at his residence and he denied the allegations. At 10:19 a.m. June 6, McGann walked into the police station and told our call taker that he wanted to surrender himself on charges of child molestation, the report said. Pinellas Park police officers talked to McGann who reportedly admitted to touching the victim June 5 under her clothing and rubbing her on two separate occasions. According to the police report, he also admitted that he had touched another little girl, who was known to him, four or five years ago when she was age 5, and again about a year or two ago when she was between 8 and 9 years of age. McGann was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Pinellas Park police said he could receive a sentence of life in prison for each offense. McGann was released on $15,000 bond June 7. Pinellas Park police announced June 10 that McGann had been taken to Bayfront Hospital on trauma alert after he caused injury to himself outside his home. McGanns death is believed to be as a result of his self-inflicted wounds and will be classified a suicide.Man arrested at marijuana grow houseCLEARWATER Detectives with Pinellas County Sheriffs Narcotics Division arrested a Clearwater man Tuesday evening in connection with a marijuana grow house at his residence on Keene Road in Clearwater. According to detectives, the investigation began in early March after they received a tip about a possible grow house. Detectives met with Grey L. Lopez, 41, June 3, and Lopez gave consent to search his residence. Upon entry, detectives discovered evidence of a grow house operation. During a search, 133 marijuana plants were seized and removed from the home. Lopez was arrested and charged with manufacture of marijuana and trafficking in marijuana and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Deputy injured in multi-vehicle crashMADIERA BEACH A Pinellas County Sheriffs deputy and two others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash about 2:13 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, in the area of 135th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach. According to investigators with the sheriffs Major Accident Investigation Team, the driver of a 2013 Toyota RAV 4 was stopped at 135th Avenue preparing to make a left hand turn to travel northbound on Gulf Boulevard. Deputy Alida Perez was traveling southbound in the curb lane on Gulf Boulevard in a marked cruiser and the driver of a 2010 Jeep Cherokee was also traveling southbound on Gulf Boulevard in the median lane. The driver of the Toyota RAV 4 began to accelerate to make the left turn and struck the front of the deputys cruiser. The impact from the crash pushed the cruiser into the side of the Jeep Cherokee. The driver and the passenger of the Toyota, identified as Donald Funk, 58, and Linda Funk, 67, of Dunnellon were transported to a local hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. Perez, who was on duty at the time of the crash, transported herself to the hospital as a precaution and for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the Jeep Cherokee, identified as Jack Buns, 65, of Largo was not injured during the crash. Matthew Olver

Legal teams from the county and PSTA have spent months hashing out the details of the agreement ahead of the Nov. 4 referendum. Approval of the 1 percent tax levy would provide a funding source for countywide transportation projects outlined in the Greenlight Pinellas plan. The plan includes an expanded bus system with bus rapid transit, increased frequency and extended hours and local passenger rail and regional connections. The next step is approval by the PSTA board. The interlocal agreement gives the county the authority to withhold distribution of the surtax proceeds and/or reduce the surtax levy if PSTA exercises its ad valorem taxing authority. It allows PSTA to pledge surtax proceeds against any debt or other obligation incurred by PSTA for the Greenlight plan. It allows the county to reduce or terminate the surtax if certain defined events occur. It requires consent from the county to undertake defined activities and provides reimbursement to the county for costs paid in support of the plan. Commissioner Norm Roche voted against the agreement. Im concerned about not eliminating the ad valorem, he said, calling it a red flag. He also is concerned about responsibility versus liability, saying the county as the taxing authority could be liable for bonds issued on behalf of Greenlight projects if PSTA is dissolved at any point in the future. The interlocal doesnt give back confidence, he said. Thomas Rask, who is running for a seat on the county commission, also said the agreement did not protect the taxpayers against double taxation because PSTA could reintroduce the ad valorem tax. Its a very strong agreement, Commissioner Ken Welch said. It does assure that the ad valorem will go away. Well be able to repeal the whole tax. It is really very strong. The interlocal states that if the state Legislature votes to change PSTAs Special Act to eliminate its authority to levy the ad valorem tax, sections pertaining to withholding or reducing surtax money would no longer be in force. Welch pointed out that even Gov. Rick Scott is now supporting transit and rail. He said he believed the legislative delegation also would support it now. Every part of the state is moving forward (with transit), he said. Welch said the interlocal agreement was something to be proud of. Commission Chair Karen Seel agreed. This agreement is very unusual in the state of Florida, she said. We did it to be accountable to our citizens. The interlocal sets forth a schedule of milestones, which includes such items as expansion of night and weekend bus service and the start of paperwork for Phase 1 of bus rapid service by the end of calendar year 2016. By 2017, purchases of standard and coach buses take place to increase frequency of service and completion of capital purchases and installation of equipment for bus rapid service. Similar milestones continue through the year 2024 with the opening of light rail transit. The interlocal calls for a review after the 50th anniversary of the surtax and each 20th anniversary thereafter. It provides the county with the authority to reduce or terminate the surtax when all projects are complete and debt is retired. The tax also could be reduced or eliminated if PSTA decides to discontinue projects, defaults on payments under a trust agreement, or uses proceeds for something other than the Greenlight plan. PSTA must seek the countys permission to make any substantial amendment to the Greenlight plan, to enter into any partnership that is materially adverse to the countys interests, to amend debt and investment policies or the trust agreement. Commissioner John Morroni said Congressman David Jolly, who doesnt favor the tax, has said if voters approve it, he will do all he can to support local transit. Commissioner Susan Latvala said the local legislative delegation also would be on board if voters say yes. We have years invested in this moving into the 21st Century, she said. Really, this is about leadership and having a vision about what the county will look like in 20 or 30 years, said Commissioner Janet Long. This is not for us. Its for our kids and our grandkids. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioner Norm Roche cast the lone no vote on an interlocal agreement with Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Coun-CLEARWATER The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County has achieved national accreditation through the New York-based Council on Accreditation, one of the largest and most prestigious childand family-services accrediting organizations in the country. Organizations pursue accreditation to demonstrate the implementation of best practice standards in the field of human services. The esteemed COA designation has been granted to only five other government entities in the state of Florida and only 47 other government entities nationwide. Plus, no organization like JWB, including Floridas Children Services Councils, has ever achieved COA accreditation. Not only is it rare for a publically funded agency to receive this honor, but JWB was expedited through the accreditation process, as COA reviewers did not grant any out-of-compliance ratings during the entire review period. This extraordinary achievement was made possible by the commitment and hard work of JWB staff and with the support of the JWB Board, Community Councils, funded partner agencies, and other community stakeholders, said Dr. Marcie Biddleman, JWB executive director. COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agencys performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organizations administration, management, and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards driving accreditation ensure that services are well coordinated, culturally competent, evidencebased, outcomes-oriented, and provided by a skilled and supported workforce. COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongo-Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County achieves national accreditation ing quality improvement. To achieve COA accreditation, JWB first provided written evidence of compliance with the COA Standards. Thereafter, a group of specially trained volunteer Peer Reviewers confirmed adherence to these standards during a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff, stakeholders and consumers. Based on their findings, COAs volunteer-based Accreditation Commission voted that the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County had successfully met the criteria for accreditation. The Juvenile Welfare Board was created as an independent taxing authority by the citizens of Pinellas County in 1945 who believed all children mattered and made investments to improve their futures. Today, JWB responsibly invests in programs with proven results and creates innovative partnerships that benefit tens of thousands of children and families each year. These efforts not only strengthen children and families, but also neighborhoods, communities and schools. For nearly 70 years, Pinellas County agencies who serve children and families and receive public funds from JWB have been held to the highest standards through contractual agreements and onsite evaluations, Biddleman said. It was time we held ourselves to these same high standards by inviting an independent body one of the highest regarded in the industry to review our organization.

Time is growing short to comply with terms of a $5 million federal grant. An extension will be required, if commissioners decide to go forward. But, commissioners are struggling to determine if a bricks and mortar clinic, offering full wraparound care is the best way to provide for the homeless. Wraparound care includes podiatry, pharmacy and respite. Area hospitals favor having a place where homeless patients can recover after they are released. Those with no place to go other than the streets, often have to be re-admitted for additional hospital care, which is expensive. A respite care facility would provide cost avoidance. Ongoing cost is a big issue. The federal grant would pay for construction of a 15,000 squarefoot facility, but provide no money for operations or maintenance. Latest estimates show it would cost about $3 million a year to provide the level of care staff recommends. Officials still have to solve the problem of how to get those who need care to a fixed location. If the state had accepted federal money to expand the Medicaid program, the health campus likely would have been a breakeven operation, Lynda Leedy, director of Health and Community Services, told commissioners during a June 3 meeting. A consultant estimates an annual loss of $872,000 in operating expenses without increased Medicaid money to pay for care of newly eligible clients. Cost to provide pharmacy and specialty care is estimated at an additional $2.2 million a year. Commission Chair Karen Seel would like to explore expanding the mobile medical unit program. The commission also continues to work with local agencies that are currently providing care to the homeless population. Everyone supports that there is lots of unmet need, but not for profit organizations have no money to support a new facility, Leedy said. Leedy has talked to the federal government about the probability of getting a grant extension to meet construction deadlines. Repeated delays in moving ahead mean the county now cannot be finished in time. Leedy said it was likely the county would be given an extension. As long as we can demonstrate progress, it should not be a problem, she said. Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard added that getting an extension wasnt a sure thing. The issue is can we afford to do this and pay for services, said Commissioner Susan Latvala. She suggested raising the millage for the health department to bring in more money. She said the issue was another chicken or the egg. We are all committed to the homeless, but there is not enough money, Latvala said. This is an opportunity we all agreed would do great service. Woodard said several related issues needed to be resolved with the most important being, what are we trying to do and who are we trying to serve. We went from providing a bridge to providing a highway to help people find services, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. What is our vision for health care? This clinic is just one piece. Commissioner Janet Long requested a report on how much money was being spent on indigent health care. We keep reinventing the wheel and forget about the person on the street who needs services as we debate how to move forward, she said. Commissioner Norm Roche concurred with Long and agreed with Latvala that a millage increase for the health department could be the answer. There are a lot of issues on this and we need to move faster, he said. I dont think we have another year to get this solved. We dont want to move fast as much as make sure we do this right, said Commissioner Ken Welch. We got here for a reason. Maybe it is time to change the model. Maybe it is time to hit the reset button here as well, he said. Dr. Claude Dharamraj, director of the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, encouraged commissioners to find a way to accept the federal grant. She suggested that a smaller facility be constructed that would meet the terms of the grant, but not over-extend the countys capacity to provide services. We dont want a black mark on Pinellas County as we have in the state of Florida, she said. She suggested a compromise. You dont need a Taj Mahal for $5 million. You dont need that big, she said. She suggests building something smaller at a cost of $500,000 to $800,000. Instead of turning down the grant, the county would ask the federal government for a smaller one. A clinic could be located at Safe Harbor, which is taxing Largo Fire Departments resources due to emergency calls for health care. It also would be close enough to serve Pinellas Hope. Go back and say we cannot use the $5 million, but we want a smaller project, she said. Dharamraj is not in favor of relying on the mobile medical unit, which often experiences mechanical problems. Care is always better in a building than a van, she said. She added that once the county had an operating clinic, it would allow them to apply for grants to pay for operations. If you build a building, you would be eligible to get money, she said. No clinic, no money. Dr. Claude Dharamraj

In a new spin on the event, HEP was permitted to ask for personal care items for the veteran and adult population it serves, including soap, shampoo, linens, clothing and other toiletries. In addition to allowing HEP to ask for donations from store patrons, Walmart itself donated over $750 worth of gift cards, as well as bicycles and other items for HEPs children. Once the Fill-A-Truck event wrapped up, Walmart continued to partner with HEP, providing regular donations of items such as pallets of bananas and strawberries, blankets, school supplies, and household items which were distributed to HEPs residents. Most recently, Walmart awarded the organization a $2,000 community grant to help sustain its meal service program. Store reps presented the check to HEPs leadership team in front of 20 guests from various Walmart locations. Following the check presentation, Jackie Dryden, HEP development director, provided the group with an overview of how HEP is able to maintain its model success rate, breaking the cycle of homelessness for thousands each year. Jonathan BrowyBeach motel earns honorCLEARWATER North Sunrise Motel in Clearwater Beach recently announced that it had received a TripAdvisor certificate of excellence award.

PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority began several new service improvements Sunday, June 8, including adjustments to schedules and routing to reduce transfer times, improve schedule accuracy and better accommodate all-time record ridership. More buses for Route 52, PSTAs most crowded bus route is top of the list. Weve wanted to make this improvement for a long time, but didnt have the money said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. Property taxes make up a large portion of our operating funds and the drop in property tax revenue from the recession has limited our ability to add service. The agency has lost more than $40 million dollars since 2008, PSTA officials said. Miller said that due to all-time record ridership and efficiency-related cost savings identified by staff, PSTA is now experiencing a budget surplus, which is being used to provide the long-awaited improvements to the Route 52, which runs from downtown Clearwater to downtown St. Petersburg primarily along East Bay/West Bay Drive and 49th St. Were adding five trips in each direction. It will definitely help with the overcrowding on this one route and were thrilled to improve this service, Miller said. But PSTA still has too many routes that operate infrequently and end too early to be reliable to our customers. Its a proven fact that increased ridership results from increases in bus frequency. Thats why the Greenlight Pinellas Plan focuses on a frequent network of routes and rapid services through all parts of Pinellas County including Northern Pinellas where the 52 doesnt run. The Greenlight Pinellas Plan for countywide transportation improvements will be on the Nov. 4, ballot and will ask voters to change PSTAs funding from its current .7305 mill property tax to a 1 percent sales tax, which will not be applied to groceries, medical items and limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase. Changing PSTAs funding method would allow for significant improvements to the countys transit service greatly enhancing transportation choices and options. Details of the plan, Q&A and background data are available at www.greenlightpinellas.com. Other changes that went into effect for PSTA June 8 were new schedules that more accurately reflect bus arrival times for the Routes 30 and 23. Plus, a detour around the Betty Lane closure in Clearwater on the Route 78 will become permanent due to the popularity and increased ridership along the detour. The new timetables are available at PSTAs Customer Service Centers, on board the buses, via mail, and in digital form at www.PSTA.net. By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER Allowing everyone to be able to obtain a drivers license would make our roads safer and less harrowing due to those who are driving without a license, said dozens of members of Latino Immigrants of Clearwater at a news conference June 9. Organizer Elisa Huapilla said thousands of people in Pinellas County are suffering hardship because they are not allowed to have a drivers license due to their undocumented status. Public transportation just isnt reliable in Pinellas County for the simplest of things, she said. Going to the store or taking the children to the doctor, taking the bus in most cases just isnt an option. We will continue to fight so these people can someday get a license. Businessman Juan Cruz said allowing people to get drivers licenses will have a major impact on safety in the county. It will definitely make things safer on the streets, he said. It will also help the police because a drivers license is a good form of identification. Unlike people who are driving illegally, those with licenses will be required to learn the rules of the road and will be required to take a test to show they know what they are doing. Lets drive Florida forward. With that last remark the crowd, which had gathered around, broke into applause and waved their signs with slogans such as Floridians deserve safe roads. Another businessman, Felix Mendoza, said the campaign to allow undocumented immigrants to get drivers licenses must continue. Were going to fight, he said. Families who are driving without licenses are putting themselves in danger. They are driving afraid and know that if they get stopped by the police for the smallest of infractions, they could get deported. Allowing them to get licenses would keep everyone safe. One theme that came up over and over again was the inadequate bus system in Pinellas County. People spoke of having to wait long intervals for buses in the rain and hot sun. Dave Kovar, who is part of an environmental group, which supports better public transportation, reminded the crowd that they can help themselves by supporting the Greenlight Pinellas campaign. Taxes in this county have been frozen for some time, yet costs continue to go up, he said. If we dont support Greenlight Pinellas campaign, then the bus company will have no alternative but to shut down some buses. They will start with the feeder routes, then without them, the middle buses will have to go; then of course the main line buses will end. There are people in this county who would be glad to see that happen. Kovar said the way to prevent that is to mobilize all the voters and support Greenlight Pinellas, which would see a 1-cent sales tax increase in the county, all of which would go toward better public transportation. That would mean there will be more buses running, in the evenings and weekends and during the day. They would come more frequently, and you would not have to wait as long in the rain or the heat. Better service means you would be in a position to get better paying jobs. Vote yes in the referendum on Nov. 4. Seminole Councilor Patricia Plantamura also is a supporter of the drivers license initiative and agreed it is a matter of public safety. It means more than that, she said. As our immigrants are being given more access to higher learning, we have a right to ask, what point is it to allow an immigrant to go to a university if they have no way of getting there? An organizer for the American Civil Liberties Union, Paola Calva Florido, lamented the fact that a bill, which would have allowed undocumented immigrants to obtain drivers licenses, did not pass the Florida Legislature in this session. We have to make this a year of public pressure, she said. We have to make our politicians understand that this is not an immigrant issue, it is not a Mexican issue, and it is not a Hispanic issue. It is a human issue. Weve all heard stories of human need as it pertains to getting a drivers license. Huapilla reminded the crowd that they can make a change in the law despite what happened this year. The November election for the Florida Legislature gives advocates an opportunity to inch towards their goal since they can be voting for politicians who can push the issue, she said. For this reason, a grassroots movement will begin to propel Latinos to get out to vote and hopefully set an example for other communities to form their own movement in their own counties to advocate for drivers licenses for everyone.

Fellow Lions Club member John Day accompanied Harvey as his guardian during Mission No. 17 of the Honor Flight program, which provides the transportation to World War II veterans free of charge. There were 80 WWII vets on the plane, and it was a very emotional and meaningful experience for all to visit the many memorials in our capital city, Day wrote in a press release explaining the experience. Harvey served in the European theater, going overseas with the 42nd Infantry Division in November 1944.

Military updates Community briefsProgram offers more accessible training for volunteer advocatesThe Guardian ad Litem Program in the Sixth Judicial Circuit, serving Pasco and Pinellas counties has announced significant changes to its training program for volunteers. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are individuals from the community who are specially trained to advocate for an abused, neglected or abandoned child. The traditional training model consisted of 30 hours in a classroom, which was sometimes daunting for potential volunteers. I think this new training program will go a long way in making the opportunity to volunteer a reality for many people, said Circuit Director Donna Rasmussen. The training will now involve three phases consisting of some independent study materials, shortened classroom time and hands-on field experience under the mentorship of an experienced volunteer. This new training allows volunteers the opportunity to learn in a way that has more practical application, rather than learning everything they need to know in a classroom and then trying to apply it. The State of Florida Guardian ad Litem Program to provide a new approach for training volunteers, who serve a vital role in the child welfare system, ensuring that the needs of children are being met and their best interest is represented in the court process developed the training. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Guardian ad Litem volunteer in either Pasco or Pinellas County, call 866-341-1425.Young Eagles Rally setCLEARWATER Area young people ages 8 to 17 will be able to take to the skies on Saturday, June 14 as the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 282 hosts a Young Eagles Flight Rally, 8 a.m. to noon, at the Clearwater Airpark, 1000 N. Hercules Ave. The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program created to interest young people in aviation. Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.8 million young people in more than 90 countries. Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally, said Bob Flynn, spokesman for the event. We hope to build one-to-one relationships between pilots and young people, giving a new generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that exist in the world of aviation. Pilots at the event will explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how planes work and how pilots ensure safety is the prime concern before each flight. Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle, and their name will be entered into the Worlds Largest Logbook, which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It is also viewable online at www.youngeagles.org. Other activities at the rally include monitoring the aircraft in flight via the radio, touring the hanger where members of Chapter 282 are building an aerobatic airplane, and there will be snacks and drinks available with a small donation. Those attending the rally are asked to be at the airpark starting at 8 a.m. to register for their flight. Registration is on a first-come, firstserved basis and will continue until 11 a.m. or until the maximum of 50 Young Eagles is met. Weather will be monitored. Check www.eaa282.org for information and cancellation notices due to weather, which would be posted by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 13. A rain date is set for Sunday, June 15.

SPC to host Four Generations forumSEMINOLE The 4Generations Institute of Tallahassee and the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC will present Our Families Four Generations: Ready or Not, Here We Are! on Tuesday, June 17, 7 to 9 p.m., in the Digitorium of the SPC Seminole Campus, 9200 113th St. N.

Advances in medicine, workplace safety, risk management and healthy nutrition practices in the last 50 years have vastly increased life expectancy in the United States. As a result, Americans are experiencing an unprecedented demographic shift: Four full generations in relatively good health living side by side. Florida is a model of the demographic reality the nation will face in 40 years. There are currently 3.3 million Floridians age 65plus living in the Sunshine State 18 percent of the population, and over 500,000 of them are over 85. Pinellas Countys age demographics are even more tilted to graying: 21.5 percent of its population are 65 or older, and 4 percent are 85-plus. How these four generations children, parents, grandparents and super-elders can live in harmony and mutual support is the subject of this Community Conversation. A panel of experts representing programs serving each stage of life will explore how, by creative action and effective advocacy, the four generations can leverage the assets of each age group for the betterment of all. The needs for health care, education, family services, employment, public safety and environmental protection are best addressed through the lens of our four major age groups, said Jack Levine in a press release. Levine is founder of 4Generations Institute. How we address the needs of the four generations is among the most critical economic and public policy challenges for the next decade. The Community Conversation, moderated by Levine, will include six Pinellas County leaders whose organizations serve one or more of the four life stages: Marcie Biddleman, executive director, Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County Eileen Boyle, executive director, Allegany Franciscan Ministries The Hon. Rene Flowers, member of the Pinellas County School Board Judge Raymond Gross of the Sixth Judicial Circuit Family Court Jeff Johnson, director, AARP of Florida Shannon Reid, vice president of Education and Practice Management, Raymond James Financial The Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg is a resource for academic enrichment, a non-partisan venue for civil, objective debate of topical public issues, a center to promote better government, and a resource for sustainable economic development.

The Beacon also made the suggestion to Promise. And the final thought: Dont Drink and Drive. At first passing I thought that it was great to remind our teens to be responsible. But pause there for a minute. Think about it. Our teens. Our teens need to be reminded to not get behind the wheel after tossing back a few? Doesnt this message quietly read: We know youre going to drink anyway, so go ahead ... but just dont drive after? I dont think this is the appropriate pre-prom admonition, especially from our Sheriffs Office. Drinking under the age of 21 is still illegal, and those breaking this law should be treated as such. Perhaps then drinking at the prom will cease to be a foregone conclusion, and our children can be safe a little longer. Our sheriff needs an editor. The sign should have read: Dont Drink! Cyndi Foisy DunedinA positive result in Madeira BeachEditor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank Elaine Poe, Deputy John Luckett along with a good number of deputies, the city of Madeira Beach, our mayor and my neighbors whose combined efforts restored calm and peace to our neighborhood on 147th Avenue. The patience and professionalism exhibited by each one of you has had a direct and very positive impact on my family and my neighbors lives. Thank you Elaine Poe for issuing the clarion call on our nuisance neighbor situation, arranging meetings and providing helpful information. You made yourself available 24/7. I will always be grateful. Thank you Deputy Luckett and the Sheriffs Office for every call you answered and for your resolve. Thank you the city of Madeira Beach for applying pressure to the landlord to dissuade him from continuing to rent out to unruly, costly and troublesome individuals. The community, the city and Sheriffs Office all worked together to a very positive result. Well done. Robert Foster Madeira BeachForever Friends a success againEditor: On behalf of the Richardson, MacCollom and Ruzecki families, they would like to thank the Seminole community for another successful round of golf at the Fifth Annual Forever Friends Golf Tournament held on April 5. This tournament was started to give remembrance and hope from a tragedy. After the accident on April 10, 2009, the families of the boys wanted to give back to the community by allowing students to continue to achieve their goals, either through sports and academics. The tournament was the best way to reach out to the Seminole community and Pinellas County to gain support and keep the boys memories alive. Over 140 golfers were able to enjoy a fun filled day with good weather and entertainment, while they played 18 holes of championship golf. The tournament featured both a lunch and dinner along with live music provided by Carlos and Joe. A raffle, silent and live auction kept people in a competitive mood as people bid for competitive prizes such as golf packages and prize packages donated by local restaurants and businesses. Golfers and members of the community were able to view memorable photos and videos of Keith MacCollom, Nate Richardson, Joey Ruzecki, and LeShawn Smith inside the clubhouse. After golf play was completed and during dinner, the crowd and families received a surprise from the Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long who read a proclamation decreeing that April 10, 2014 as Forever Friends Day in Pinellas County. After the auction, the families and friends participated in a butterfly release and delivered a heartfelt thank you to over 300 guests and friends. Along with Seminole Lake Country Club general manager Norm Haglund and golf pro Bruce Chaleff, they thanked the continuing support of the golf course along with the countless volunteers that helped make the event run smoothly for the afternoon shotgun. The families would like to thank gold sponsors: the Orr Family, the Kenny Family, Clear Tech Pools, Relief at Hand, Helinger Advertising, Twiss Transport, and Pavimento Inc., as well as silver sponsors: District 66 Florida House of Representative Larry Ahern, Ferman Automotive, and bronze sponsors the Bluett Family, JLG and Associates, Angry Pepper, CM Management LLC OHanlan Family, the Hano Family and FedEx. They were able to raise money that will benefit high school students and athletes with their college and career plans; along with giving local children the opportunity to follow their dreams to play football, baseball, basketball and soccer. Proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit The Keith MacCollom Hoops and Heritage Memorial Scholarship fund; the Joey Ruzecki Memorial Scholarship Fund; The Nate Richardson Memorial Baseball Scholarship Fund; the YMCA of Largo and Play for Us Memorial Foundation. On May 13th, the families presented awards to the winners of the scholarships. Winners for the Keith MacCollom Hoops and Heritage Memorial Scholarship award were Max Mason, Sara Lynn Stiehler, Connor Frain and Tanner Cowan. Winners for the Nate Richardson Baseball scholarship award were Nicolette Meyers on the softball team and Doug Borgh, Kyle Frickman and Cody Miller on the baseball team. Winners for the Joey Ruzecki Memorial Scholarship were Connor Frain, Max Mason, Brianna Morgan, Liam Murphy, Haley Weaver and Madeline Zanga. The families hope to see the continuing support next year when the tournament will be held on April 11th at the Seminole Lakes Country Club.

The Richardson family Seminole The watchdogs that surround usEvery month my electric company sends me a letter telling me how I compare with my neighbors as far as power usage goes. The company has three ratings (and the phrasing I use here is mine, not theirs). (1) You are a good boy, Bobby. You dont use more electricity than is really necessary. Keep up the fine work. (2) You are in the middle ground, sir. You are not a power hog, but you could cut back on the kilowatts per month if you really tried. (3) You should be ashamed of yourself. If everyone consumed as much power as you, the system would collapse and wed all be plunged into darkness and despair. I appreciate being told where I fit in, re electricity consumption. All my life Ive been ruled by the nagging question, How am I doing? Not just on electricity use, but on almost every aspect of my behavior. I assume that other people are troubled in the same way. And now its possible for all of us to be graded and rated on dozens of living standards, not just on electric power consumption. Thats because we are now under continuous visual observation, tape recording, record keeping and other forms of monitoring. Today we have not just one Big Brother, but also hundreds of them. They can watch and catalog almost everything we do. For example, when you rolled out of bed this morning at 7:18, that fact was probably noted by a tiny gadget installed beneath your mattress (without your knowledge) by the National Institute of Bedroom Behavior. This shadowy group is able to tabulate everything you do in bed or in your bedroom. One day you may receive a monthly notice like this: Miss Clark, you go to bed most nights 17 minutes earlier that other females of your age group. You snore 8.5 minutes per night, and visit the bathroom 1.8 times. Your average wake-up time is 6:45 a.m. By now were all aware that our smartphones and iPads reveal most of what we say, do or think during the day. Added to that are our postings on Facebook, Twitter and the latest social network, Numbskull Natterings. But were you aware that your TV set can spy on you? The FCC, the NSA and the TV industry now have the ability to send the following notice to any of us: Mr. Cox, were troubled by your refusal to watch Fox News for more than six minutes a day, compared with your fascination with PBS and other left-leaning productions. We also note that you often switch on Al Jazeera Americas news reports. Dont you know that people in the Mideast operate Al Jazeera? Be careful, sir. American Grocery Snoops (AGS) is able to tell you this: Your April 2014 purchase of pork butts, chocolate syrup and Pringles exceeded the quantities recommended by AGS health experts. We suggest you balance this by buying more kale and sugar-free sauerkraut. The late-model cars we drive may soon be able to send us to jail. A traffic cop will pull us over and attach electronic cables to various parts of our car. A few minutes later he/she will hand us a printed report and say, Youre under arrest. Your cars monitors show that in the past week you exceeded the posted speed limits of Largo, Tarpon Springs and Lealman. Also, on March 3 while crossing the Howard Frankland Bridge, you were drinking from an open container of an alcoholic beverage. It was beer. Bud Light. Please exit your car. You have the right to remain silent..... The Posture Police (PP, or PeePees) also will be sending us notices. Mr. Arbuckle, our omnipresent cameras indicate that during the first eight months of this year you have developed a noticeable slump (8 percent) in your carriage, while walking. Your chin has lowered, and you have failed to pull your shoulders back as far as you did when you served in the U.S. Marine Corps (1970-74). We hope that you will address this problem immediately, if not sooner. If you think Im exaggerating, think again. Modern technology is gradually wiping out every vestige of personal privacy. The culprits are not just the right-wingers or the liberals. Its a host of snoopers and bright boys, many of whose only rationale is simply, We know how to spy, so lets do it! But you and I (the laboratory rats) will one day prevail. Well learn how to invade the snooper programs and scramble the data so thoroughly it will explode into chaos, allowing us to resume our unexamined, uncharted and joyfully unplanned lives. The hope still lives, and the dream shall never die. Avanti! Excelsior!Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.Police, press dont always get alongJournalism was different decades ago when I covered crime beats in New York and New Jersey. Reporters and cops always maintained a guarded rapport. Officers often barred journalists from entering their secret world, but if you were among the privileged few to be accepted into their ranks as one to be trusted than you received tips about arrests or ongoing investigations. Back in the 1960s when I launched my career in the news business police precincts had rooms set aside for the press. We were allowed to read crime reports from which stories were gleaned. We were invited to go along on drug raids, to sit in on interrogations, and even interview suspects in jails and precinct holding cells. Often reporters rode to crime scenes in patrol cars. In exchange the police expected a fair shake. Journalists who went out of their way to assail law enforcement received very little sanctioned cooperation. One colleague who decided to expose all the real or imagined gossip about police and politics lasted two months before being reassigned to the lawn and garden beat. Through cop friends I connected with entertainment and political figures. I was introduced to unsavory characters, murderers and gangsters. Once I shared dinner with a New Jersey police captain and his friend who just happened to be a shylock enforcer who broke legs and arms for a living. When the bill arrived I found myself short a few dollars. The bone crusher offered to make up the difference. I refused in fear of having an ear severed or my knees smashed for the five bucks I was short. (I used a credit card to cover the tab.) Todays relationships between cops and the media is more guarded than ever before. Once a deputy sheriff went ballistic because I leaned over a yellow crime scene tape to take a picture. Get away from there, he yelled. Another time a female officer insisted that I leave the location of an incident where a police K-9 dog made a happy meal out of his handlers groin. Florida reporters are not allowed the freedom of their peers in northern metropolitan areas. Official press credentials are virtually unknown in the Sunshine State, whereas press cards and auto visors are issued by law enforcement agencies in New York City and New Jersey. Some states even issue distinctive license plates to working members of the media. Walking into a police station to peruse police reports is now taboo. To speak with a cop within the confines of a stationhouse requires an escort to the appropriate office and another escort to leave the building. A small number of officers really do take themselves way too serious. Some possess a them against us attitude, believing that they really are new centurions and we civilians are mere mortals. Once while being ushered down the hall of a local stationhouse I asked my policewoman-escort what would happen if I suddenly ran down the hall and into an office. She didnt think that was very funny. None of this is to say that cops are not sympathetic about the job of the press. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office boasts the finest press relations division of all local agencies. A few police departments are not as friendly, for whatever their reasons. A spokesman with an attitude once boorishly accused me of peeking through a window where a murder had taken place.Police routinely decline to comment on breaking stories. They often withhold information and even the names of suspects and victims. And they become irritated when reporters circumvent their bureaucracy to independently contact neighbors and others to gather information for stories. I think cops are inhibited because of the bad press they occasionally receive. Then there are court decisions that have forced changes in law enforcement procedures. Now most media requests go through a public information officer or division. That is partially because some investigations, such as bank robberies, are investigated by multiple agencies. Information is withheld during ongoing inquiries in cases of sex crimes or juvenile incidents, and even to protect the rights of certain persons of interests, as suspects now are labeled. You cant blame the police for protecting themselves from possible retribution during trials, or civil suits launched by lawyers whose imprudent billboard and television advertisements have become so common. The police and press mostly do work in sync, and continue to shuck baggage from an era when some journalists saw cops as brutal, evasive and cynical. Too, reporters often are viewed as self-appointed experts who know little about police procedures and the inherent dangers. Misbehavior on both sides is not uncommon. As Police Chief magazine in its May 2014 story on police/press relations said, Working with the media is not complicated. Collaborating positively is a lot more rewarding than fighting with each other. Police leaders and reporters have a lot to offer each other. Each can help the other succeed. Together, they can really achieve that rarest of scenarios: a win-win situation. But best of all, the taxpayers benefit, from learning about the threats to public safety and what their law enforcement officers are doing about those threats. The ensuing free flow of information benefits all involved.Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. He can be reached at thomasamski@yahoo.com.

One place my two girls love going to is the beach, and its free. Did you know that on Friday nights theres a place on North Redington Beach that offers hula dance lessons to kids and adults? It is at Mangos Restaurant and Tiki Bar, 17120 Gulf Blvd. which is right behind DoubleTree Beach Resort. You can listen to tropical music on the beach. Right before sunset on Friday nights, the Sunset Island Dances come out and put on a fabulous hula show. They even do the limbo. It is a lot of fun. I know the summer can be long if you dont have things to do with your kids. Hopefully this gives you a few ideas for the summer, and you wont have to spend too much money.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

You wont hear any vulgarity or foul language. In fact, the comics, who also openly embrace their Christian faith, are known for keeping it clean. Its totally clean, said Pinellas Park-based comedian Juanita Lolita yes, thats her real name the troupes founder. But we dont want people to think we do Christian comedy. We just happen to be clean and Christian. Our humor isnt bible-based. She added, We do have joy in Christianity but our shows dont cram it down your throat. The four comedians who make up H2O Lolita and Bill Ohse, also from Pinellas Park, Lakelands Johnny Roberts and New Port Richeys Rahn Hortman each perform regularly on their own, bringing their squeaky clean acts to comedy clubs throughout the state. Being clean in a comedy club is already something completely different, Lolita said. When we perform, you dont even realize were clean because youre so busy laughing. They primarily cull their material from relatable experiences of day-to-day living. And audiences must be enjoying what they hear. Last year, Lolita was named Tampas Funniest Female in Floridas Funniest Comedian competition. Hartman was named Tampas Funniest Comedian overall in the same contest. Lolita founded H2O Humor to Outreach in January 2013. Eventually, her husband Rick Williams, a music and sound engineer, built the group an eye-catching stage display. He took us from being four comedians with a microphone to being a full-scale production, she said. Often, they bring their quick-paced act to churches whose patrons are more used to humorists telling longer stories rather than jokes with punchlines. When we get into a church setting, theyre blown away, Lolita said. Theyre not used to anything like it. They also perform for more mainstream audiences, like at the upcoming PAC show. But their shows still benefit the community. Tickets to the June 14 show cost $12, and part of the proceeds will benefit a variety of organizations, including the Pinellas Park Thunderbirds and Childrens Miracle Network.

MonastPodiatric Physician & Surgeon Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons F.D.A. Cleared DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 020614 Suffering in silence: Understanding and relieving lonelinessDo you feel like everybodys got somebody, except you and are you tired of seeing everybody else so happy when youre lonely and have no one? Although you may feel like you are the only lonely person, the truth is that even though Pinellas is the most populated county in Florida, the days and nights of solitude close in on many people just like you. Its not the presence of other people that can cure loneliness; its the presence of mind in the heart of the lonely person. Do you understand why you are lonely? Do you know what can be done to alleviate your suffering? How can you come out of the silence and into a life fulfilled? There may be several reasons why you feel lonely and they are different for each person, but some of the root causes of loneliness are low self-esteem, poor self-confidence, finding it difficult to talk to others (poor social skills), stages of life (new in town, becoming a single parent, recently widowed, relationship ended) or it could be just not knowing where to go or what to do to find friends or a potential dating partner. Whatever your situation, the pain of loneliness can be overwhelming. Id like to help lift your heart by sharing some ways to overcome these feelings so you can live in a state of happiness. If you didnt know how to put a piece of furniture together, cook a meal or drive to an unfamiliar location, one of the first things you could do is read the instructions, follow the recipe, and check the map or use the GPS. Lets compare curing loneliness to any one of these tasks. The first step is to learn about your causes of loneliness. You could consult a counselor, a pastor or even Google. There are several websites dedicated to providing answers like www.webofloneliness.com, for example, where loneliness is discussed in detail. If your root cause is related to self-esteem, confidence or social skills, you could check out www.amazon.com/ to find a book in print or download onto your reading device. You could go to www.audible.com/ to download a book to listen to on any one of these subjects by typing in your desired subject in the search field. By doing this, you would be taking a step toward understanding what is holding you back and developing skills that can lead you to alleviating your loneliness. It is not unusual for some people who experience loneliness to develop depression or anxiety. If this is the case with you, which came first? Are you lonely because you suffer from depression and cant seem to snap out it or are you depressed because you feel lonely? Do you suffer from anxiety that prohibits you from interacting socially or does the fear of being isolated cause you to feel anxious? Its a vicious circle, but I have noticed that becoming involved in activities can distract the mind, energize the body and make the heart smile. Depression and anxiety often reduces and releases the stranglehold on the individual. What if you just want to meet friends and you have no interest in a romantic relationship? Conversely, what if you desire a close connection? My suggestion would be to move in the direction of finding friends first and not focus on the romantic aspect. The greatest relationships form a basis in friendship first. If you have worked through your self-esteem or confidence concerns and are ready to take the next step, consider a few of these sources: 1. www.meetup.com You can page through this website to find a group that you are interested in joining. There are many activities you can choose from. Go for the fun of it, and you may end up forming friendships with like-minded people. 2. Sports: Did you used to like to play sports when you were younger? If you type your desired sport into Google and type your city, you can find various leagues to join. Have fun! Feel young again. If you arent as young as you used to be, you can consider coaching a youth group as an alternative. 3. Volunteer: Many charities need volunteers. Its a great way to do something that speaks to your heart and you can find friends in these circles as well. Do you love animals? The SPCA, Humane Society or Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary needs you. Do you like seniors? Many senior centers need someone just to push a wheelchair outside on a nice day. Do you have a heart for the homeless (Metropolitan Ministries, Pinellas Hope), veterans (Bay Pines VA Hospital), the dying (Hospice), children (Big Brothers Big Sisters) just to name a few? They all need you. Your service to others can be very rewarding. 4. Religious groups: Many religious groups have calendars full of activities to join for fellowship and fun. Getting involved in a small group can lift your spirit and help you find a life-purpose. The most important suggestion I can offer you is that if you suffer in silence with loneliness, reach out. Take one step at a time. Understand what is causing you to suffer and then develop a few new skills that can help you to discover a whole new life that leaves loneliness behind you.A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

With our water temperature approaching the mid-80s, mid-day fishing especially on the shallow grass flats can get pretty tough. As we approach mid-summer conditions it is imperative to search out those areas that provide good tidal flow, depth and structure. Structure is a relative term. A deep depression just off the edge of a flat or a deep trough cut through the sand along the pass shoals can both be considered structure. Some more obvious structures would be jetties, beach breakers, and of course, the many artificial reefs that line our coast. Some of the most productive fishing this time of year happens around our pass jetties. These massive structures will hold all kinds of bait, making them a natural stopping point for just about any predator that swims by. Current is usually always present and fish like snook and tarpon will stage up and wait for their meals to come to them. So free lining your baits with the current makes for a deadly presentation. Redfish also can be found working the bottom part of the water column. A medium sized pinfish or a chunk of fresh ladyfish fished on the bottom will let you know if there are any redfish around. Near-shore mitigation reefs provide excellent habitat for a variety of game fish. These shallow reefs can be found from 50 to a couple of hundred yards offshore. They will hold trout, flounder, cobia and tarpon. Using light tackle and small pilchards will work for the trout, mackerel and flounder, while bigger live baits will attract the attention of the tarpon and cobia. This is the time of year when we start to see lots of fry-bait in the water both off the beach as well as deeper flats inside the bay. Fishing around these schools of fry bait can be really good. Often youll find schools of Spanish mackerel busting through the clouds of micro-baits. Live chumming with pilchards will quickly switch the fishes attention to the bigger baits.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

She serves on the School Improvement Plan committee and is an active volunteer at the school and in the community. Brown-Hall also serves as the girls and boys track coach. Linda Rouisse of New Heights Elementary, was named the Outstanding Adapted Physical Educator. Rouisse has been with Pinellas County Schools for 33 years. She is a specialist team leader, an active volunteer and has represented PCS as a speaker at the National Water Safety Congress. Jessica Hoag of Seminole High School, and Erin Phelps of St. Petersburg High, were named Outstanding Health Educators. Hoag serves as department head, has helped develop health and physical education curriculum for PCS, and trains phys ed teachers around the state. Phelps volunteers with a number of community organizations, is a curriculum developer, and sponsors multiple clubs at St. Pete High.

The award winners were honored at a ceremony on May 22.County offers summer safety tips for people and wildlifePinellas County officials remind beachgoers to keep a few things in mind to make the experience safe and fun for themselves and the wildlife along the Gulf of Mexico. Stingrays are common in the shallow waters of the countys coastline. These fish typically spend time along the sea floor, sometimes partially covered by sand. While they are not aggressive, stingrays will sting with their tail when stepped on. To avoid a sting, beachgoers are urged to do the stingray shuffle, which simply involves shuffling feet and kicking up sand when wading into coastal waters, rather than taking full steps. Practicing the stingray shuffle at local beaches can prevent injuries to people and the stingrays. Another animal that lives in the Gulf, appearing around area beaches is the sea turtle. Sea turtles typically nest along the Pinellas County coastline from May to October, and hatchlings face many obstacles to survive. When nesting, an adult female sea turtle comes ashore, digs a hole in the sand and lays about 100 to 150 eggs, covering them before returning to the water. Over the next couple of months, these eggs hatch, and the tiny hatchlings make their way across the beach into the sea. Sea turtle nests are marked with wooden stakes and yellow ribbon by trained monitors. Disturbing the nests or the sea turtles themselves is against the law. If beachgoers come across a nesting sea turtle, hatchlings or a nest, they should keep a safe distance and avoid getting between the turtles and the water, as this may prevent them from reaching the Gulf. Other obstacles include chairs, umbrellas and other debris left along the beach. Beachgoers should remove these items after each visit to keep the path clear for nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. Pinellas County Coastal Management also makes sure to prevent or mitigate impacts to sea turtles while conducting beach nourishment projects. Anytime a beach nourishment project is taking place we work with permit holders at Clearwater Marine Aquarium to assure minimal impacts to sea turtles, said Andy Squires, coastal and freshwater resources manager with Pinellas County Coastal Management. Artificial light also can disrupt the nesting process, disorienting hatchlings and leading them away from the ocean. Many beachfront municipalities in Pinellas County have passed lighting ordinances. Beachgoers and property owners along the water should minimize artificial lights that shine directly on the beach to give hatchlings a better chance at survival. These simple steps will help make nesting season successful. Nesting animals of the winged variety also can be found in some of Pinellas Countys parks and preserves, and they too are best viewed from a distance. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, people should avoid entering areas with posted shorebird/seabird signs, keep dogs on a leash and away from nesting areas, properly dispose of trash to keep predators away and avoid flying kites near nesting areas. When the birds become aggravated, people are too close. Videos about parks and preserves can be found on the countys YouTube channel (PCCTV1) at www.youtube.com/user/pcctv1/search?query=park s+and+preserves.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:How to Train Your Dragon 2Genre: Action, adventure, animation and family Cast: Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Cate Blanchett, Djimon Honsou, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig Director: Dean DeBlois Rated: PG From DreamWorks Animation comes the highly anticipated sequel to the Academy Award-nominated How to Train Your Dragon, based on the childrens book series by Cressida Cowell. In the thrilling second chapter of the epic trilogy, five years have passed since the heroic young Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended an injured dragon and forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with the fire-breathers. Now, Vikings and dragons live side-byside in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragons paradise. But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers. Its much more than he bargained for, though, when Hiccup discovers that a mysterious dragon rider is really his long-lost mother Valka (Cate Blanchett) and that the peace between dragons and Vikings is threatened by the power-hungry Drago (Djimon Hounsou) with help from the dragon trapper Eret, son of Eret (Kit Harington). As Astrid (America Ferrera), Gobber (Craig Ferguson) and Viking friends Snotlout (Jonah Hill), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and twins Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig) and Tuffnut (T.J. Miller), lend their support, Hiccup, his mother and tribal chief father Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), must work together to protect the dragons they have grown to love. In the process, Hiccup finds the answers he has been looking for in ways he could never have imagined. Jump StreetGenre: Action and comedy Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Amber Stevens and Craig Roberts Director: Phil Lord and Chris Miller Rated: R After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. Opening this weekendHiccup and Toothless return in How to Train Your Dragon 2 Photo courtesy of DREAMWORKS ANIMATIONToothless and Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) make plans for their next adventure in How to Train Your Dragon 2. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they dont have to just crack the case they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.The following will open in limited release.

Niko lives for the moment as he drifts through the streets of Berlin, curiously observing everyone around him and oblivious to his growing status as an outsider. Then on one fateful day, through a series of absurdly amusing encounters, everything changes: his girlfriend rebuffs him, his father cuts off his allowance, and a strange psychiatrist dubiously confirms his emotional imbalance. Meanwhile, a former classmate insists she bears no hard feelings toward him for his gradeschool taunts when she was Roly Poly Julia, but it becomes increasingly apparent that she has unfinished business with him. Unable to ignore the consequences of his passivity any longer, Niko finally concludes that he has to engage with life. Shot in timeless black and white and enriched with a snappy jazz soundtrack, this slacker dramedy is a love letter to Berlin and the Generation Y experience.All Cheerleaders DieGenre: Image Entertainment Cast: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink and Tom Williamson Director: Lucky McKee and Chris Silverton Not rated Teenage outsider Maddy is keeping some dark secrets and holding a serious grudge against the captain of the Blackfoot High football team. When Maddy joins the schools elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she convinces her new friends to help inflict her revenge. After a late-night party goes awry, their plans take an unexpected turn for the worst and all of the girls die. A sinister, supernatural power intervenes and the girls mysteriously appear at school the next day with a killer new look and some unusual new appetites.HellionGenre: Drama Cast: Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, Deke Garner, Jonny Mars and Walt Roberts Director: Kat Candler Not rated Gene (Kevin Tighe) at her mothers funeral. Eager to get to know her father, Rachael later tracks him down at an assisted living home only to realize that Gene suffers from memory loss and thinks he is still a young man. He has no recollection of having a daughter and instead is convinced that Rachael is actually her mother. After trying and failing to make him remember her, Rachael eventually decides to go along with her fathers delusions by pretending to be her mother in order to get to know him. Before long, Rachael is visiting Gene every day, finding new ways to bring elements from his past into their present relationship. What began as a search for understanding has become romantic and joyful, but it cant go on forever.Ivory TowerGenre: Documentary Director: Andrew Rossi Rated: PG-13 As tuition rates spiral beyond reach and student loan debt passes $1 trillion (more than credit card debt), Ivory Tower asks: Is college worth the cost? From the halls of Harvard, to public colleges in financial crisis, to Silicon Valley, filmmaker Andrew Rossi assembles an urgent portrait of a great American institution at the breaking point. Through profiles at Arizona State, Cooper Union, and Sebastian Thruns Udacity among several others Ivory Tower reveals how colleges in the United States, long regarded as leaders in higher education, came to embrace a business model that often promotes expansion over quality learning. But along the way we also find unique programs, from Stanford to the free desert school Deep Springs to the historically black all womens college Spelman, where the potential for lifechanging college experiences endure. Witching & BitchingGenre: Comedy, crime, horror and thriller Cast: Hugo Silva, Mario Casas, Pepn Nieto, Carolina Bang, Terele Pvez and Jaime Ordez Director: lex de la Iglesia Not rated When a bank heist in the city doesnt all go according to plan, Jos and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, Jos has With a name like All Cheerleaders Die, its evident that this new Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainment release scheduled for VOD and limited theatrical release June 13 is meant for a niche market. That very specific demographic of hardcore horror aficionados may be pleasantly surprised by this little cinematic gem. All Cheerleaders Die is sloppy its plot choppy and its CGI lackluster but its still darkly funny, inventive and occasionally scary well, mildly unsettling, anyway. First, lets have a quick look at a number of horror flicks that have exploited cheerleaders: Satans Cheerleaders Even stars John Ireland, Yvonne De Carlo and John Carradine couldnt earn this 1977 comedy-horror flick a single Oscar nomination. Cheerleader Camp Also known as Bloody Pom Poms, this one was released in 1988 and featured 1970s teen idol Leif Garrett in a starring role. Head Cheerleader Dead Cheerleader This 2000 Slumber Party Massacre copycat slasher flick starred Tasha Biering who went on to have an uncredited role as a guest at Lord Cornwallis ball in the Mel Gibson historical actioner The Patriot. Cheerleader Massacre This 2003 slasher film is actually a sequel to the Slumber Party Massacre franchise. Most of these films have one thing in common: Female characters are objectified and generally portrayed as helpless, often unable or unwilling to fight back. Female characters in such films also are traditionally stereotyped as ignorant. The women in All Cheerleaders Die are fiercely independent. They fight. They are problem-solvers. They have strong, intelligent dialogue. Though some of them are victimized, they do not revert to the conventional victim persona. All Cheerleaders Die, billed as a comedy-horror, challenges sexploitation horror with a satirical tale of high-school revenge. The filmmakers writer/directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson conjure up as much feminist ideology as black magic as they tackle issues of teenage romance, loyalty and popularity. The story opens with a Maddy, a teenage outsider, filming her high schools cheerleading squad. She captures a shocking accident on film. Three months later, Maddy is trying out for the squad. Shes also hiding some dark secrets and harboring a serious grudge. After Maddy is embraced by the schools elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she quickly and clandestinely involves them in her plot to inflict revenge. Unfortunately, Maddys plans are derailed and she and her new besties find themselves in a rather grave situation. Leena, a loner whos crushing on Maddy, employs some supernatural skills to reanimate the bunch of them and send them off on a mission of bloody retribution. All Cheerleaders Die is a cross pollination of teen horror, sex comedies, action, non-ironic romance and straight up fantasy, said the filmmakers in the directors statement provided by Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainmen. We feel this mixture of tones and emotions encapsulates what its like to be a teenager in the modern world what with the barrage of media, information, and an overload of instant communication. Despite its aspirations, All Cheerleaders Die has serious problems. The build-up to the action is slow and perplexing. The plot is a mixedup mess that frequently loses its momentum. The film relies primarily on eye-candy and repeatedly abandons comprehensible storytelling. Too often, the viewer is left wondering what just transpired and how the scene fits in to the overall story. Too often, the very female characters that are supposed to be the antithesis of the archetypal horror movie victim suddenly and inexplicably collapse into brainless, powerless airheads. What is innovative here is the fact that All Cheerleaders Die strives to make a feminist statement by lampooning genre exploitation and delivering smart, determined butt-kicking cheerleaders out for vengeance. What is sad is that the film belittles that aim by clutteringAll Cheerleaders Die satirizes supernatural horror tropesMovie review Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe the screen with the very stereotypical aspects it seeks to satirize. On the plus side, the film features a zombie kitty cat. Even with its flaws, and although it lacks the mainstream cultural appeal of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, All Cheerleaders Die is an engaging, creative genre film that frequently has the power to charm its niche audience. Considering the films ending, a sequel is possible. Perhaps McKee and Sivertson will manage to smooth the rough edges for the second round.

OPENING, from page 1BWriter/director Kat Candlers Hellion paints the powerful portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution set against the haunting backdrop of the refineries of Southeast Texas. Obsessed with heavy metal, dirt bike racing and partaking in the occasional act of vandalism with his band of delinquents, the behavior of 13-year-old Jacob Wilson (Josh Wiggins) has begun to raise concerns around town, especially when it starts to involve his younger brother Wes (Deke Garner). While the boys father Hollis (Aaron Paul) loves his sons, he is still reeling from the loss of their mother, spending more time drowning his sorrows at the local bar and working on his damaged beach house than being an active parent. When the local authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, Wes is taken into custody by his Aunt Pam (Juliette Lewis), leaving Jacob and Hollis to fend for themselves. In Wes absence, Jacob becomes increasingly obsessed with two things: winning a local motocross championship and getting his brother back.I Am IGenre: Drama Cast: Jocelyn Towne, Kevin Tighe, Jason Ritter, James Morrison and Simon Helberg Director: Jocelyn Towne Not rated I Am I is the story of a young woman, Rachael (Jocelyn Towne), who meets her estranged father also brought his son along, for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles. When they decide to make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside, the group encounters a series of local wackos. Falling victim to a mysterious spell, they soon find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual. More colorful characters begin to enter the picture, including a pair of hapless cops hot on the trail, a defecting vixen witch and Joss controlling ex-wife, and the situation spirals further out of control, heading towards a jaw-dropping climax.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

The 30th anniversary of the tour that celebrates the biggest hits of the s and s kicked off June 7 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. The tour hits the Tampa Bay area on June 13 with a show at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $40. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Every night, listeners will hear their favorite songs from The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie, Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night, Mark Farner formerly of Grand Funk Railroad, Gary Lewis & The Playboys and Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. The performers will play numerous hits including Were An American Band, Some Kind of Wonderful, Devil With A Blue Dress, Good Golly Miss Molly, Mama Told Me Not To Come, Joy To The World, This Diamond Ring and Happy Together. During the show, the multimedia highlights during each of the performances will reference the time period of the music. Listeners can truly feel and see the soundtrack of their youth during a Happy Together show as they are transported back in time. The Happy Together tour began in 1984 with mainstays The Turtles. It started up again in 2010 and this is its fifth consecutive year. The overwhelming response and love for the music has endured, and now The Happy Together Tour enters its 30th year anniversary.The Turtles Happy Together by The Turtles hit No. 1 on the charts in 1967 displacing the Beatles Penny Lane and remains a staple on classic rock radio to this day. Although their biggest hit and signature song, its just one of their nine Top 40 hits, which include such popular songs as Shed Rather Be With Me, Elenore, You Showed Me and It Aint Me Babe. In 1968, far ahead of their time, they would release one of musics first concept albums, The Turtles Present the Battle of the Bands, where they pretended to be 11 different bands with different names, each providing a song in a different genre. The album showcased their incredible range of vocal talent and spawned the hits Elenore and You Showed Me, both peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan have remained plenty busy over the years with both The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie and their extracurricular music activities. The band has sold over 60 million albums worldwide and continues to please audiences with their fun-filled performances. This Happy Together Tour 2014 sizes up to be the strongest and most rocking summer weve had so far, said Mark Volman in a press release promoting the tour. The artists who are with us make us excited to get started and the audience is in for a great night of music and memories.Chuck Negron Chuck Negron co-founded the hugely popular, multi-platinum band, Three Dog Night in 1967. The group went on to become one of the most successful bands of the late s and early s with 21 Top 40 hits and three No. 1 songs including Joy to the World, Black and White and Mama Told Me (Not to Come). The bands first gold record was One, which featured Negron on lead vocals as did Joy to the World and many other of the bands biggest hits including Old Fashioned Love Song. Negron has kept the music that he helped make famous alive by continuing to perform throughout the decades. Dont miss this show, Negron said. Its magical!Mark Farner Mark Farner is best known as the enigmatic frontman for Grand Funk Railroad. His singing, writing and performing are the stuff of legend. At 21 he performed at Shea Stadium and at 65 the man simply wont be denied as his latest single Take You Out. Farners hitmaking is well documented with The Locomotion, Bad Time to Be in Love, Im Your Captain/Closer to Home, and Some Kind of Wonderful. Summing it up... I am proud to be suckin air and still able to do what I love doing, said Farner. Rock has a grip on my soul and our fans rally to the call and bring it out of our innermost being time after time.Gary Lewis & The Playboys Aficionados of the s pop classics have cause to rejoice with the return of Gary Lewis & The Playboys. It was the summer of 1964 when producer Snuff Garrett discovered Gary Lewis & The Playboys. By the following year, they had a song go straight to the top of the charts called, This Diamond Ring. After the second hit titled, Count Me In, went to No. 2, Gary and the band proved they would be a continued success. They followed with more Top 10 songs such as Save Your Heart for Me, Everybody Loves A Clown, Shes Just My Style, Sure Gonna Miss Her and many more. In 1965, Lewis was Cash Box magazines Male Vocalist of the Year, winning the honor over other nominees Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. He was the first and only artist during the 1960s to have his first seven releases reach Billboard magazines Top 10 on the Hot 100 chart. Still going strong, Gary released a new single last year titled, You Cant Go Back. Im excited and looking forward to bringing you more fun memories in this years Happy Together Tour, said Lewis.Mitch Ryder & The Detroit WheelsHigh octane, turbo, high performance, explosive, super-charged Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels do not need to hail from the Motor City for those adjectives to be tossed their way, but it certainly was appropriate that they call Motown home. It was Ryder and his band who served as the musical bridge between the Motown soul factory and the high-energy, take no prisoners rock n roll that would roar out of Detroit via Iggy & The Stooges, MC5, Ted Nugent and Bob Seger. Ryders hit Jenny Take a Ride features the explosive musical quality that has been there from the very start, with the way the introductory chords are chomping at the bit to swoop down into the double-time mid-section. Or how the thundering bass drum triggers the ecstatic roll that kicks off Devil With A Blue Dress On, which climbed to No. 4 on the charts.

Thats why its so important to strengthen your home to resist high winds. Some key tips: If your roof needs replacement, a new one can be installed to meet stronger building codes adopted in 2002. Shutter your windows. Glass can be broken by flying debris. Protecting your windows can keep storm winds and rain out and your roof on. Duct tape provides no protection. Check weather stripping and caulking around windows and doors, replacing if necessary. Check your garage door. If your door needs replacing, look for a reinforced, windrated model. Think about other improvements. The Federal Alliance for Safe Homes has step-bystep instructions for reinforcing your homes roof, gable ends and other vulnerable areas. If you have questions about your homes storm readiness, consider having a home inspector review your homes condition. Double check your homeowners insurance policy.

Must bring this ad.12712 Indian Rocks Rd., Largo, FL 33774727-596-9156012314Matt Facarazzo, D.V.M.with this ad NEW LOCATION Kennel cough is a respiratory disease that dogs can acquire by being in close contact with other dogs. Kennel cough usually involves more than one infectious agent. Some of the infectious agents include bordetella bronchiseptica (bacterium), canine adenovirus 2 (virus), parainfluenza (virus), canine influenza (virus), and canine distemper (virus). Having your dog vaccinated for these diseases does not guarantee prevention. Most vaccines help decrease the severity of the symptoms should your canine friend come down with kennel cough. Other agents known to be involved with kennel cough are Mycoplasma canis (neither a virus nor a bacterium), and Canine reovirus. The symptoms of kennel cough are either a deep, honking-like cough or a cough that sounds like the dog is hacking up a hairball. Sneezing, nasal discharge, and runny eyes can be seen as well. Most cases will resolve within one to two weeks, however, the dog could be infectious for up to three months. Some of the more complicated cases can progress to pneumonia. If your dog does not get better in a week to 10 days with treatment, have your pup rechecked. Treatments for kennel cough may entail antibiotics, antiinflammatories, and/or cough suppressants. Rest is extremely important when recovering. With excitement and exercise, airflow through the trachea and lower airways increase, which causes the irritation that induces more coughing. More coughing equals more irritation so the vicious cough cycle continues. Using a harness instead of a collar will help to relieve any pressure on the trachea, which can also cause coughing. The incubation time from exposure to showing clinical signs is from two to 14 days. Many puppies and dogs from shelters or rescues commonly get sick after they are brought home. This is why it is always important to isolate a new dog from any other dogs in your household for at least two weeks. With the emergence of doggy day care facilities, dog parks, and more restaurants allowing dogs, the exposure to these diseases becomes more likely. If your dog frequents these or dog shows, groomers, or boarding facilities, then it is a good idea to have your dog vaccinated. Bordetella vaccines are labeled for one year, but some facilities require dogs to be vaccinated every six months if they are going to be exposed to a lot of other dogs. Bordetella vaccines are available in injectable, oral, and intranasal forms. It is always good to have your dog vaccinated two weeks before he or she is exposed to other dogs. Getting vaccinated the day of boarding is not ideal, but if your dog gets vaccinated every six to 12 months, then there will be some immunity. Those dogs that have not been vaccinated in the past and then get vaccinated the day of boarding are more at risk for developing disease. It is important to note that respiratory diseases in dogs are highly contagious, and even the most immaculate of places cannot be 100 percent sterilized, since the particles are in the air. Kids that go to school get sick because they are in close contact with things that other kids are touching and are coughing and sneezing in the environment. We see more cases of kennel cough during our own flu season and during the holidays when a lot of dogs are boarding, even with the best precautions. If you must expose your dog to a place where other dogs are gathered, there is a small chance that your dog could get sick. Coughing should not be confused with something called a reverse sneeze. Many dogs get rushed to the emergency clinic because of this type of episode. To see what a reverse sneeze looks and sounds like go to YouTube and type in reverse sneeze in dogs. You can also see what kennel cough sounds like on YouTube. Many people think their dogs are choking when in reality they are coughing or reverse sneezing. If a dog were really choking then he/she would not be passing air and you would need to do the Heimlich maneuver right away to try to clear the airway. The trip to the ER may be too long. The American Red Cross has great CPR and first aid books that they publish for both dogs and cats. The books come with a DVD as well. This is a great investment and may actually save your animals life one day. Kim Donovan, D.V.M., is an associate veterinarian and medical director at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 16 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine.Help your dog and get the facts about kennel cough This months Pet of the Month winner is Silky the rabbit and her once-adopted son, Cecil the squirrel. Silky lives in Largo with his humans, Mark and Robin Hansen, human brother Christian, and doggy brother Coco the chocolate Lab. Silky is a 5-year-old Rex rabbit, and she was adopted from the SPCA four years ago. Cecil the squirrel was found with a hurt leg and tail and was abandoned from his nest. He was so tiny that Christian had to feed him with droppers for the first few weeks, and the family kept him in a cat kennel so he could heal. Once he started walking and eating better, the Hansens opened the door and put him on the porch, where Silky lives. At first Silky was annoyed by this furry intruder, but soon she would look for her squirrel baby and would snuggle up with Cecil. Robin thinks this companionship may ha ve helped with Cecils healing. Since squirrels are not pets, he only stayed with the family until he could care for himself. As Pet of the Month winners, the Hansens and Silky won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Al exandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.
