By SUZETTE PORTERViolence in Iraq can be blamed on the rising cost at the fuel pumps. Americans will likely pay the highest price per gallon this Independence Day since 2008. But thats not stopping travelers. AAA Travel projects that 41 million Americans an increase of 1.9 percent over last year will take a trip at least 50 miles from home during the Independence Day holiday travel period, July 2-6. About 1.8 million will be Floridians. With school out for summer, the Fourth of July holiday is typically the busiest summer travel holiday, Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group, said in a press release. About five million more Americans travel for this holiday compared to Memorial or Labor Day weekends. Traditionally, the majority of those celebrating our nations independence take a road trip. In fact, more than eight in 10 travelers, about 34.8 million, will travel by automobile, the most since 2007. Consumers are still mindful of their personal finances, Jenkins said. Auto travel is the best option for controlling expenses. It allows travelers the most flexibility in trip length and the option of making last minute changes. Gas prices are on the rise. AAA says that in recent years, gas prices have gone down prior to Independence Day, but this year the violence in Iraq is driving up the cost of crude oil. Current gas prices are still cheaper than this years peak price and unlikely to deter people from traveling, Jenkins By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Parrish and Alicia Sandefur have never run a restaurant before. In a bold new start last year, they sold their lake house in Wisconsin, moved with their two teenagers to Pinellas County and invested $3.2 million of their own money to purchase the property at 3500 E. Bay Drive in Largo and turn it into Culvers. The realization of their efforts opens Monday, July 14. Its the seventh location in Florida so far for the franchise, which is known for its frozen custard and Butter Burgers. But its a lot more than just that, Alicia Sandefur explained. Culvers has such a wonderful feeling. Alicia sat in the Dunkin Donuts across West Bay Drive from the restaurant as a construction crew paved the driveway June 25. Her friendly smile and open demeanor, along with a bag of plastic coins granting free scoops of frozen custard, prompted more than one conversation with customers eager for the opening of the new restaurant. Ill be there opening day, said one such future customer, Colleen Noyes of Clearwater. Ill be there every day. Noyes said her friend from Wisconsin spoke highly of the restaurant. She and her friends live close by and were looking forward to making the place a frequent stop. We have a group. Were all going to be over there, she said. Alicia said she hoped that such gatherings will flourish in the good family feel of Culvers. Youll have people that come in every day, every couple of days. You get to know them by name, she said, explaining that the philosophy starts at the top, with CEO, whom shes come to know by name. Craig Culver has a way about that. He wants it to be like youre welcoming somebody into your home. The Sandefurs are an extension of the familycentered model, though the restaurant business is a new experience for them. Until recently, Parrish Sandefur was an executive at Briggs & Stratton, often traveling internationally to help set up Photo by TOM GERMONDHeavy construction equipment begins the demolition of the administration building at Largo High School, at 410 Missouri Ave., June 27.

Commissioners unanimously approved waiving the fees during a June 24 meeting. Free parking will be offered at Fort De Soto, Sand Key and Fred Howard parks. Commissioner Norm Roche made the motion for free parking, which was quickly seconded by Commissioner Janet Long. Roche wanted the free parking extended only to veterans. Since it isnt possible to segregate one segment of the population due to the way parking fees are collected he suggested that Independence Day parking be free for all. Long agreed free parking was a good way to honor veterans and suggested the measure be extended to include Memorial Day as well. I dont want to play Scrooge, and I understand the concept, but I would be more comfortable if this was an agenda item, Commissioner Ken Welch said. He asked about the cost. Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard said Fourth of July would be a high-attendance day with parking fee collections coming in at $80,000 to $100,000 at Fort De Soto alone. No decision was made about parking fees on Memorial Day. Parking fees at the countys other beach access parks, including Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores/Tiki Gardens, Madeira Beach, Redington Shores and St. Pete Beach, will still be in effect.

See FRANCHISE, page 4A By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The slate of seven declared candidates running in the Largo election this November will get a little less support from the city government, per a new interpretation of a state law that governs how public funds are spent. The city will no longer provide a candidate forum, broadcast time for candidate statements and space for candidate profiles on the city website. Commissioners approved the second reading to delete those parts of the city election ordinance July 1. Basically, the statute now is being interpreted, and I think its a reasonable interpretation, is that the city cannot spend any funds in any way with regard to a campaign for the election of a candidate, explained City Attorney Alan Zimmet during the first reading of the ordinance June 17. In prior elections, the five-minute statements broadcasted on local government access channel and online profiles on the city website were provided to all candidates equally. But now the Florida Division of Elections determined in an opinion that any use of city resources or staff time, even if its provided equally to all candidates, is in violation of state law. The candidate forum, previously held in Largo City Hall, also wont happen this year. The city still will provide space for campaign materials in city facilities, such as the library and recreation centers. It doesnt take any staff time to make room for a stack of brochures on a table, City Clerk Diane Bruner said. Candidates will be responsible for replenishing the brochures as needed.

When the company offered to buy out his contract, Parrish had a chance to consider what else he might want to do with his life. The Sanderfurs, who met at a high school in Michigan, didnt encounter the Culvers brand until the 1990s, after they moved to Wisconsin and were married. Theres one on every corner in every neighborhood in Wisconsin, Alicia explained. My husband just absolutely fell in love with it. Parrish even wrote a small business plan based on the concept of Culvers while he was earning his MBA. But he had a good job at Briggs & Stratton, one that he might have kept until retirement. The buy-out offer gave him a new opportunity. I knew his back of the mind had always thought about this Culvers thing, his wife explained. When youre in a corporate environment, you dont really even give yourself a chance to explore that, because youre so busy. The couple wanted to retire in Florida and found out that the company had decided to open new franchises in the Florida market. They wanted to include their children in the decision. Evan, now 17, was still in high school and Leah, now 19, was graduating and planned to go to college in Wisconsin. We had a family meeting. We just decided, yep, were going to move our whole family down here to Florida, Alicia said. It was a big adjustment. Leah decided instead to follow her parents south and attend the University of Central Florida. Despite his mothers worry, Evan has flourished at Shorecrest Preparatory School. The move has been only part of the process. There were various stages of testing and training before Parrish was approved as a Culvers franchise owner, including 16 weeks training at the corporate headquarters in Sauk City, Wisconsin. But at every step of the way, the Sandefurs got a green light to keep moving forward. The lake house sold quickly. Culvers approved of the couples background and financials. It was all falling into place. I guess if one of those things wouldnt have worked, this wouldnt have worked. Were a working family; we didnt necessarily have the money, Alicia said. Who would have ever thought? The family moved to Florida last August. They rented a townhouse in Clearwater Beach and began the process of looking for a suitable restaurant property in the area. They needed enough land to support 52 parking spaces because drive-through customers park and wait with a number on the dashboard for their food to be prepared fresh and delivered to their car. They considered property on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, a plot near Bay Pines and another on Ulmerton Road before they settled on the site of the former Farmers Kitchen on East Bay Drive. The building was demolished and rebuilt to the exact specifications of a medium-sized Culvers model the Sandefurs chose. As construction continued, the Sandefurs hired 72 part-time and full-time employees to work at the new restaurant. The managers are already trained and working in Port Charlotte, where the first Culvers in Florida was built and opened. Parrish has been working alongside his employees, whom hes paying to work despite construction delays at his own franchise. The Sandefurs will begin training the rest of the their crew on site starting July 7. Then, they will open the restaurant for a family day, inviting only employees and their families to a welcoming party on July 12. The restaurant is set to open to the public July 14. Alicia said she knows that there are several residents from Wisconsin and the Midwest who are excited for the opening. Many wave her down when they see the Culvers logo on her vehicle or white polo shirt and ask for an update. When you believe in a product, and see how excited it makes people, it makes all this construction worry overshadowed, she said. Alicia said Culvers has a policy of hiring inclusively. Shes looking forward to reaching out to senior communities and asking residents if theyd like to work for just a few hours a day, filling coffee and chatting with customers. One of her current hires is an 18 year old with Downs syndrome. His mom called me and said, I saw Culvers is coming and I know Culvers hired people with disability, Alicia said. You give everybody a chance to work. She said she cant wait until the community understands and embraces Culvers family-friendly philosophy. She wants the place to be welcoming like a similar franchise was to her daughters cheerleading squad, whose owner kept the place open late so the squad could gather after games. Shes ready for customers to come in just for the custard flavor of the day. She is excited to welcome them into the homey dining room that is a big part of the restaurant. Its not like any other fast food, she said. Eventually, the Sandefurs hope to expand and open more than one Culvers in Pinellas County. The company allows a couple to open as many as five total, but emphasize that expansion should be very controlled. They want the owner to be very present, Alicia explained. My husband will be working in that restaurant, overseeing everything for a very, very long time, till you feel very comfortable that you have a wonderful (general manager). And then well probably start our second. But so far, the Sandefurs are absorbing the many life changes that have come with opening their first restaurant over the past year, which coincides with their 25th wedding anniversary. This is a big year for us, Alicia said. I cant tell you enough how happy I am, how proud I am to be a part of this company. Pinellas Countys first Culvers, at 3500 E. Bay Drive, will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. starting July 14. A Culvers in Tampa, to be opened by different franchise owners, also is in the works. said. Many travel plans have already been made, and budgets set aside. In some cases, consumers will reallocate their budgets and cut back on dining, shopping or other trip activities. On June 29, according to AAAs Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gasoline in the United States was $3.67. The same day last year, the price was $3.50. Floridians were paying an average of $3.62. On the same day last year, the price was $3.46. The price is a little lower closer to home. Motorists in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metro Area are paying an average of about $3.56. Last year, the cost was $3.39. AAA says current gas prices are the highest since 2008, but they still havent reached that same level. On July 5, 2008, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gas in Pinellas set a new record of $3.996. The highest price ever reported was $4 on July 16, 2008. Air travel is expected to increase about 1 percent this year. Holiday air travel has slowly increased since 2011, AAA reports. Airfares are down about 5 percent with the average round-trip, discounted fare for the top 40 U.S. routes costing $215, down from $228 last year. Car rentals still average about $58. Regardless of the mode of travel, hotels will likely cost more than last year. AAA says hotels at Two Diamond hotels are 15 percent higher to about $137 a night, and prices are up 9 percent at Three Diamond hotels to about $178 a night. AAAs experts say people are willing to pay a little extra to take a holiday trip. Steady improvement in the economy along with increased consumer spending and confidence are the main factors driving more Americans to take a trip, Jenkins said. Consumer spending is expected to rise 4.2 percent, because of increasing credit not rising incomes. Consumers have been hesitant to add to their credit card balances the past several years, but continued improvements in the employment picture and rising home values means they are starting to feel more comfortable taking on debt. AAAs projections are based on economic forecasting and research by IHS Global Insight. AAA has been reporting on holiday travel trends for more than two decades.

He opposed a portion of the ordinance, which did not change, that states that the city will notify candidates after removing illegally posted campaign signs only once per election cycle. Candidates are able to retrieve 10 signs from the city. What Id rather see us do (is) if theres an illegal sign, just have code enforcement pick it up, put it by the dumpster, Holmes said last month. He added that he didnt think the city should have to notify the candidates after removing signs at all, nor penalize campaigns whose opponents might move signs on purpose. I dont know why were getting in the middle of this thing here, because this can really get nasty. Those signs are expensive, he said. Commissioner Woody Brown said he didnt think dueling volunteers really maliciously moved their opponents signs to places the signs are not allowed, knowing code enforcement would discard them. But if there are people putting signs in the rightof-way, clearly in the right-of-way, knowing that they just come get them in the dumpster next week, that happens, he said, explaining that allowing candidates to retrieve only 10 of their signs helped enforce consequences for continual violations. Mayor Pat Gerard pointed out that it usually wasnt the Largo candidates who were guilty of illegally placed signs anyway, but rather volunteers for bigger campaigns. Its a courtesy to call them one time and say, You know, your volunteers are putting these signs in the wrong place. You might want to talk to them, she said. I dont have any problem, if the staff doesnt, with giving them one phone call. No one else was in favor of changing that rule, which the mayor said had been debated contentiously several times before. The change passed with a vote of 6-1, with Holmes dissenting. Largo extends temporary signs By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO A program designed to stimulate the economy by allowing Largo businesses to use temporary signs was extended another year July 1. The provision, first enacted in July 2010, allows businesses to put up banner signs smaller than 32 square feet and 12-foot feather signs. The temporary signs can be displayed for no more than 45 days once every three months. Two new rules were added to the ordinance this year, to help city staff enforce the program. First, if businesses are caught displaying their temporary signs beyond the 45 days, their permit will be revoked for the remainder of the yearlong term. Second, the city now is able to remove signs that are not in a safe and neat condition, allowing the city to enforce professional and uncluttered signage, according to city documents. Largo commissioners expressed concern with lack of enforcement of the ordinance, given a reduced staff to check on businesses with permits. The new rules helped allay those concerns, but Commissioner Woody Brown said they didnt go far enough. Brown was the sole vote against the ordinance change, which passed its second reading July 1. Weve seen a lot of signs that go up and stay up until they basically fall down on the ground, he explained after the meeting. As they proliferate, more and more of them up and down the right-of-ways, theyre not that effective either, I dont think. To date, the city has issued 294 permits since the start of the program in 2010: 75 in the first year, 77 in the second, 80 in the 2012-2013 year term and 62 in the most recent period, which started July 2013. The city gives an average of six permits per month. Code enforcement visited a random sample of businesses with active sign permits in May, according to city documentation. Only one of the 14 signs was determined to be in poor condition. However, code enforcement discovered and removed five signs without permits. Brown pointed out that the program was meant to be a temporary stimulus to the economy. If its temporary, it should end at some point, he said. A focus group charged with updating the comprehensive development code has recommended keeping the temporary sign program as a permanent option for businesses. Brown said he hoped that commissioners wouldnt agree to that measure, explaining that residents who responded to the Community Values survey this year said they wanted an attractive community. I dont think these feather signs, especially when theyre in disrepair after a while, are real attractive, Brown said. Instead, he suggested giving businesses more latitude for creative signs during a shorter amount of time. If its really important for businesses to draw some attention to themselves, they should have, like a couple weeks a year, or some period of time a year where they can do whatever the heck they want, he said. And then the rest of the time, comply by our sign code. The commissioners voted 6-1 to extend the temporary sign program for one more year.Weekly events Bridge games: Mondays and Wednesdays, 12:30 to 4 p.m. All players are welcome to join the American Contract Bridge Leaguesanctioned games.

County 5A Leader, July 3, 2014 11350 66th St. N., Largo727-538-7771 There are different types of dementia afflicting over 7 million people today. In the early stages of dementia, many seniors show less interest in the activities they once enjoyed which can be hard on the family and loved ones who want to help them. There is one thing that all of us can do over and over again and that is simply to hug that person! This one gesture reassures them that they are not alone, they are loved. It is an emotional lift that speaks from the heart expressing, I care, I am here for you. Hugging, holding a hand, or smiling when talking can convey more than any words. We all need some TLC, and the person with dementiais no exception. While she/he might not be able to express their need for touch in words or, in late stages of dementia, the initiation, that touch is important.Also, be aware of your body language and facial expressions. Portraying respect and patience will allow for a positive conversation as it is painful to be talked about as if one isnt present. Routine activity, carefully planned, can enrich the lives of those affected with dementia and support them in many ways by helping them stay focused, maintaining proper blood pressure, blood sugar, keeping their minds sharp, slowing down the decline of dementia and building confidence. A few activities that prove beneficial for seniors and help keep them engaged include the following: Talk about past loves and relationships. Most people with dementia can recall events from the past compared to the present. Bring out old photos to help keep the discussion going. Talk about those romantic memories from the early years. Listen to music. Create art. Use construction paper, felt, doilies, paints, markers and stickers to create a work of art. Their artwork will make great gifts for grandkids, friends and neighbors. Bake something sweet. Make and decorate cookies. Just like music, the smells of baking treats may bring back thoughtful memories. Create with fresh flowers. Buy vases and an assortment of fresh flowers, possibly flowers from their own garden, for the senior to assemble. Remember to keep it fun! Following these few guidelines can offer stimulation and enjoyment for the person affected by dementia and their loved ones. Interacting with the senior with dementia and addressing his or her daily needs can not only provide relief for the senior but also peace of mind and reduced stress for the family. Every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug or just a friendly pat on the back.

According to investigators with the sheriffs Major Accident Investigation Team, Deputy Steven Wolcott, 41, was headed home from an off-duty detail in his 2011 Crown Victoria marked cruiser. The deputy was traveling northbound on Belcher Road, attempting a westbound (or left) turn onto Bell Cheer Drive just before the crash. Christian Brinsko, 22, was traveling southbound on Belcher Road in the median lane in his 2005 Saturn Ion. Deputies said Brinsko was traveling with no headlights and that only parking lights were on. Wolcott did not see the vehicle, started his left hand turn and struck the drivers side rear wheel area of the vehicle. Brinsko was transported to Morton Plant Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released. Following release from the hospital, deputies determined that Brinsko was impaired and he was arrested for DUI and DUI property damage. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $1,000. Wolcott was not injured. The cruiser sustained damage to the left front area. Deputies said narcotics appear to be a factor. According to jail records, Brinsko has two prior arrests this year for marijuana possession.Two arrested in high dollar theft PINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police wrapped up an investigation of a high dollar employee theft scheme with two arrests on June 25. According to a police report, Walmart Asset Protection notified Pinellas Park Police Department of the scheme involving one of its employees on June 25. Kevin Rious, 24, of Pinellas Park, is accused of selling high dollar electronics at a substantial unlawful discount to various persons, as well as to James Lall, 26, of St. Petersburg, the second suspect in the case. Police said that Rious began the scheme on May 7 and continued on 24 separate occasions. Walmart reports losses of $23,264. Lalls participation amounted to $13,066. Rious and Lall were apprehended in the commission of this scheme June 25. Pinellas Park police public information officer Adam Geissenberger explained how the scheme worked. In a statement, Geissenberger related the June 25 incident. Lall sent a text message to Rious with a shopping list of items he wanted Rious to set aside, Geissenberger said. Lall would arrive and pick up the items at the electronics department register where Rious was assigned. Rious would complete a sale of items that were not being purchased at a substantial reduction in the cost of the actual items being given to Lall. Lall then walked out with electronics valued in excess of $3,000. Lall paid $500. Lall would later pay Rious for his assistance in the crime. When police arrested Lall, he was in possession of a firearm, stun gun and narcotics. Lall was charged with possession of oxycodone, possession of heroin, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a concealed firearm and scheme to defraud. Bond was set at $24,000. Rious was charged with grand theft. Bond was set at $20,000.Man arrested for attempted murderLARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives arrested a Largo man Monday night for attempted murder after he shot his daughters fiance in the neck following a verbal dispute. According to investigators, Matthew Burrows, 46, and his fiance Patricia Groves, 34, both of Largo became involved in a verbal dispute regarding Burrows drinking about 6:53 p.m. June 23. At some point, William Chalmers Jr., 55, told them to stop, and subsequently became engaged in a verbal exchange with Burrows. During the exchange, Chalmers made threatening remarks to Burrows and pulled out a gun. Burrows retreated into a bedroom of the mobile home and shut the door. Chalmers followed him to just outside the room. In an effort to calm things down, Groves stood in front of the door between Chalmers and Burrows, who was inside the room. Chalmers then fired a shot through the door, striking Burrows in the neck, investigators said. Burrows was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.Armed man arrested for batteryST. PETE BEACH A man armed with a screwdriver injured a patron at MacNastys Sports Bar & Grill in St. Pete Beach about 2:20 a.m. June 23. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested Christopher J. Forrester, 29, of St. Petersburg for aggravated assault. Deputies responded to a call about an armed subject at MacNastys Sports Bar & Grill, 6295 Gulf Blvd. in St. Pete Beach and was told that Forrester had fled the area after a physical altercation with Jason Sefick, 36, also of St. Petersburg. Sefick told deputies that he and Forrester were in a fight when he realized he was bleeding from his head. He then noticed Forrester had a screwdriver in his hand. Stefick was able to break away, return to the bar and call for assistance. Forrester fled the scene leaving behind his sandals and sunglasses. Deputies also located the screwdriver that Forrester used to attack Stefick. Deputies requested a K9 unit and set up a perimeter. K-9 Deputy Matt Aitken, 31, and K9 Bosco arrived on scene and initiated a track, which led them through several parking lots and then north along the beach. They continued a quarter mile north along the beach jumping several fences. Bosco, the K9, then alerted to the bushes where they successfully located Forrester. He was taken into custody and treated at the scene for punctures to his left thigh and left calf, which resulted from the police K9 apprehension, according to the sheriffs report. Forrester was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $10,000. Sefick was treated by paramedics at the scene.Man drowns off beachINDIAN ROCKS BEACH A Massachusetts man died at an area hospital Tuesday night after he was found unresponsive in the water offshore Indian Rocks Beach.

OR 727-400-6870 727-400-6870 ELYSA celebrates new tax levy; county opens door to fund others By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER An overflow crowd got what they asked for June 24 when Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a one-quarter mill tax levy to fund a newly created East Lake Recreation Services District. After the vote, the days final item of business, the large audience rose to its feet and cheered. Many shouted out, thank you! The only East Lake resident to speak against the new tax was Roger Johnson. He pointed out that residents were already dealing with the stormwater tax, which started last year and cost him an extra $267. Property values also are going up, which drives up property taxes. In November, youll have the tax for light rail, he continued. And the fourth and final is East Lake Youth, and they want a quarter mill. He said the county should only provide essential services life and death services that we have to have. Kids playing soccer ball is not essential, he said. He wanted residents to get a chance to vote on the tax. He said a lot of East Lake residents had already raised their kids and paid the higher fees for them to play sports. Voters should decide if they want an extra tax, he said. The notion of a second quarter mill in taxes for residents of the East Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District to pay for youth sports began last year when the commission approved a one-quarter mill to fund East Lake Library. In previous years, East Lake residents had paid a half mill in ad valorem taxes to piggyback onto Palm Harbors Library, as part of the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative. Volunteers who operate the East Lake Youth Sports Association requested that the remaining quarter mill be levied to funds its operations, but the request came too late. This year, they made their request early, presenting commissioners with evidence of their need. It is estimated that as much as $550,000 would flow in from a new municipal service taxing unit funding East Lake Recreation Services District. The money would pay for field maintenance, which is now paid with fees paid by participants. It would be enough to make needed repairs and fund capital improvement projects, including new lacrosse fields as well. ELYSA would become an advisory organization to the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency, which would govern the use of the new tax. For 30 years, ELYSA, a nonprofit organization, has been funded with limited help from county government and more from user fees. Due to the lack of funding, football, Little League and soccer programs were forced to charge higher fees than surrounding municipalities. The high price of youth sports in East Lake placed a burden on parents and created a need for a lot of fundraisers over the years. A quarter mill of dedicated tax revenue would solve many problems and allow for lower fees. About 19 residents spoke in favor of the new tax. They spoke of the value of providing a place for kids to play, as well as the benefits of character building from playing team sports. Volunteer Mitch Wright, who coaches Little League, talked about the importance to the community. Having a safe place to play sports is paramount, to help build character for the kids and the adults and help bring the community together, he said. Ann Duncan, wife of former commissioner Ronnie Duncan, talked about the good investment youth sports would be to the community. As a real estate consultant and baseball mom, Duncan recognizes the value of having facilities that add to the quality of life. Gene Davis said it had been 10 years since he had been active in ELYSA and he recalled the early years of the program when people who came to play in East Lake made fun of us. He said over the years, they had built and improved their facilities. But it wasnt enough. The people voted down a tax to fund youth sports in 1995 and 2000, he said. Then the county provided $500,000 in grant money, which the association turned into $750,000 worth of improvements thanks to donated time by the contractor, he said. Davis is now an empty-nester, so he understands why the people voted down a tax to pay for youth sports in the past. But he supports the tax. I want to see my grandkids play on good stuff, he said.Holistic approachCommissioners recognize that approving a separate millage for youth sports in East Lake would open the door for other unincorporated areas to request the same. Commissioner Susan Latvala pointed out that others areas werent as defined as Palm Harbor and East Lake, so she advocated approving the tax for East Lake and then discussing what could be done in other areas. She said the commission had been working on doing something for youth in unincorporated areas of northern Pinellas since she became a commissioner in 2000. I want to leave office with that no longer being the case, she said. Its about quality of life and what we value, Commissioner Janet Long said. When the going gets tough and the money gets tight, it is the little kids and elderly on the wrong side of the stick. Long questioned how the commission could provide the same opportunity to all. She said parents from Seminole had already reached out for funding. She said kids in Lealman and other areas needed a place to play. Commission Chair Karen Seel said before the recession hit, the county had used a specific portion of taxes paid by unincorporated residents to provide grants for projects, such as lighting the sports fields in East Lake. The money also was used to reimburse residents for higher fees paid to municipalities to use their recreational facilities. The commission agreed a new plan might be needed going forward. Seel questioned whether it was time to increase the millage to unincorporated residents. This is a good conversation, she said. This (East Lake millage) is a precedent. If we do this, we need to do for the rest. This is an investment in the quality of our communities, Commissioner John Morroni said. Its an investment in our kids. Athletics and arts make a difference, Commissioner Ken Welch agreed. My only concern is were not taking a holistic approach. Long asked if something could be done for the coming year. Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard said he would look at the MSTU contingency fund. Commissioner Norm Roche suggested delaying the decision on East Lake until the holistic approach could be considered. Latvala pointed out that the average value of a home in East Lake is $260,000 compared to $150,000 for the rest of the county. Other parts of the county cant pay that kind of money, she said. A different kind of program is needed. Seminole may be able to do it, but Lealman and Highpoint is whole different animal.

LUNCH IS ON US! Bridge closure targeted for September By BOB McCLUREST. PETE BEACH County officials told members of the Barrier Islands Government Council June 25 they would do their best to begin repairs to the Park Boulevard Bridge in early September. The project, which has been proposed since last fall, would close the bridge for 30 days. The entire project would take 120 days. A contract for $834,685 was awarded June 24 to Seacoast Inc. of Oldsmar. Initially, Richard Coates, director of transportation and stormwater for Pinellas County Department of Environment and Infrastructure, said County Commissioner John Morroni suggested a time between November and December but beach leaders didnt agree. Traditionally, September is our most quiet month, said Indian Shores Mayor Jim Lawrence. Is it possible for construction to start by then? I agree with Mayor Lawrence, said Redington Shores Mayor Bert Adams. If we could get it started at the first of September that would be the best. Project Manager Tom Menke said it is feasible for a September start but everything would have to fall into place perfectly. All of the pieces have to fit together and some of it is out of our hands as far as the contractor, who now has to produce bonds and insurance to the county, he said. That sometimes takes time. Menke said he would begin immediately to set the September date in motion. Well definitely leave this meeting and go talk to our purchasing dept and see what we can do to accelerate the process, he said. Hopefully well be able to achieve that. In the event of a hurricane evacuation, the bridge would reopen and it would be used to help residents get safely to higher ground. Other emergency management plans call for a Sunstar ambulance to be stationed on the beach during the closure to better handle paramedic emergencies. According to county officials, the project is necessary because the bridge machinery is undersized, which has resulted in past closings. The work will consist of installation of primary reducers and brakes, trunnion hub reinforcement, buffer repair, live load shoe and nose lock shimming, bridge balancing and maintenance painting. During the 30-day closure, motorists can use alternative routes to the beaches via the Walsingham Road and Tom Stuart Causeway bridges in Indian Rocks Beach and Madeira Beach. The Park Boulevard Bridge was built in 1979, connecting Park Boulevard with the barrier islands. Photo by BOB McCLURECounty officials are targeting a September closing of the Park Boulevard Bridge to make needed repairs. The closing would last 30 days. BriefsReclaimed water conservation neededPinellas County reminds residents that restrictions continue on the use of reclaimed water. Water is unavailable on Monday, Thursday and Friday while the system is shut down for maintenance and storage level recovery. Customers are asked to continue limiting their reclaimed water use and to follow the reduced reclaimed water availability irrigation schedule to help with this resource recovery initiative. Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday and/or Saturday Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday and/or Sunday Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday and/or Sunday Prohibited lawn irrigation between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Prohibited lawn irrigation on Monday, Thursday and Friday During the past several months, storage levels of reclaimed water declined to the point of exhausting the water in storage and potentially damaging pump equipment. As the return of seasonal rainfall helps stabilize reclaimed water supplies, the reclaimed water systems capacity will be re-evaluated. The reduced schedule is anticipated to remain in effect until storage levels recover, at which time the reclaimed water system will be returned to full operation.

The purchase included a covered parking space. However, my deed did not include the parking space. Should I ask for my deed to be corrected to include the parking space? A: I must assume that your covered parking space is a limited common element. A limited common element is a common element, which is reserved for the use of a certain unit to the exclusion of all other units, as specified in the Declaration of Condominium. Since your covered parking space is a limited common element, you do not own same; you only have the exclusive right to use same. Therefore, the covered parking space should not appear on your deed and should not appear in your title insurance policy. Limited common elements are initially assigned by the developer or the condominium association, and then subsequently assigned from seller to buyer. The assignment is typically accomplished through a separate document. Q: My condominium consists of 40 units. Twenty of the units are three bedroom/two bathroom units and 20 of the units are two bedroom/two bathroom units. Each unit owner pays the same maintenance fee. This does not seem fair to me. A: Unfortunately, life is not always fair. The Florida Condominium Act provides that a unit owners liability for common expenses must be the same as the unit owners undivided share of ownership in the common elements and common surplus. For residential condominiums created after April 1, 1992, the ownership share of the common elements assigned to each unit must be based either upon the total square footage of each unit in relation to the total square footage of all units in the condominium or on an equal fractional basis. Your developer obviously chose to have all unit owners equally own the common elements and common surplus and to equally share in the costs of maintaining and operating the condominium. To change this method of assessment, an amendment to your Declaration of Condominium would be required. Said amendment would have to be approved by 100 percent of the unit owners and 100 percent of the holders of liens upon units within the condominium. It is most unlikely that such an amendment can be obtained. Q: My condominium association is demanding that I provide it with a key to my unit. For security reasons, I am reluctant to comply with the request. Do I have to provide my association with a key to my unit? A: Section 718.111(5) provides that the association has the irrevocable right of access to each unit during reasonable hours, when necessary for the maintenance, repair, or replacement of any common elements or of any portion of the unit to be maintained by the association, or as necessary to prevent damage to the common elements or to a unit or units. In my opinion, the association has the right to have each unit owner within the condominium provide it with a key to their respective unit. You should request the association to establish safeguards relative to the access to said keys.

The 92-foot-long Yacht Sensation, which can accommodate 128 passengers, will be based out of the Clearwater Municipal Marina. Yacht Sensation is the latest addition to Yacht StarShip Dining Cruises, making it the largest fleet of luxury dining yachts in Florida according to a press release. The new vessel arrived in Tampa in May 2014 after a 12-day river cruise that originated in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Yacht Sensation was greeted and escorted into its new homeport with a traditional water cannon display from Tampas premier tugboat, Patriot. Were excited to have the opportunity to expand our business with the addition of the Yacht Sensation, allowing us to serve our guests in Clearwater Beach and Pinellas County with luxury yacht charters for private parties on a full-time basis, said owner Troy Manthey in the press release. Joining Manthey and the StarShip leadership for the dedication were Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce vice president Brooke Boccacino, Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce President Robin Sollie and Liz Lajoy of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce.

10A Viewpoints Leader, July 3, 2014Its time to pass the hat for Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state has tried to distance herself from her weeks-ago assertion that after husband Bill left the White House, the couple were dead broke. She told PBS that the line was inartful, but only after she told a British paper that she does not count herself among the truly well-off. Nobody knows the troubles shes seen. In the United Kingdom pushing her latest book for which she received a reported eight-figure advance Clinton told The Guardian that the Clintons should not be seen as out-of-touch swells: We pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well-off, not to name names; and weve done it through dint of hard work. Let us check the boxes of that quote. The Democrat essentially asserted that U.S. income taxes are cleaning out the family coffers. Expect her to call for tax reform a la Mitt Romney, as she believes that paying taxes has kept the Clintons who, according to Politico, reported earnings of $109 million in the eight years preceding 2008 from being truly well-off. Through dint of hard work? Surely, Clinton worked harder as first lady and secretary of state than now. Ergo, she sees the speaking fees and book advances as just reward for what she often refers to as the call to public service. Now we know what public service means: Run for office; collect a top2-percent paycheck; then cash in. If you engaged in public service, youre entitled to it. With such an attitude, it should come as no surprise that Clinton will be paid $225,000 to speak at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas fundraiser in October. A private foundation will pay her fee so who cares if the money goes not to students but to a speaker who excels at self-serving spin? I dont begrudge the Clintons their wealth. Its just that every time I hear or read Hillary Clinton confess that shes a gal who just cant say no to public service, I reach for my wallet. Say this for Romney: He made his fortune in the private marketplace. Likely 2016 presidential rival Joe Biden knows a good opening when he sees it. On Monday, the veep told the White House Summit on Working Families not to hold it against him that he doesnt own a single stock or bond and has no savings accounts. He said, But I got a great pension, and I got a good salary. PolitiFact rated Bidens statement as half true, as the Bidens own five bank accounts. Also, wife Jill owns stocks. That said, it is refreshing to see a politician who recognizes that a six-figure salary and generous benefits are a fair reward for elective office. He even described his $230,700 salary as a lot of money. Biden seems to understand the fact that fundraising, which puts politicians in an orbit with the super-rich, doesnt mean they are entitled to a private-plane lifestyle. Let the reader beware. Democrats who crusade against income inequality oftentimes are counting the days until they, too, can rake in many times more than the median earner they claim to champion. Worse, in their case, they think theyre so selfless that they deserve it.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sf chronicle.com. Im aiming this column mostly at grandparents, lets say people aged 60 and older with grandchildren who are 10 to 20 years old. This week, as we celebrate the 238th birthday of our beloved country, Id like you to roll the calendar forward 50 years. You wont be hanging around at that time, of course. Nor will I. But our grandchildren will still be on deck (or so we hope). Today I want you to picture your grandkids standing at your gravesite or thumbing through a family photo album. Imagine, as they think of you, that they ask this question: I wonder what Grandpa or Grandma did, or even thought, about global warming way back then, when there was still time to do something about it? I wont attempt to imagine the answers to that question. Instead, Ill list some possible situations our grandchildren may face at that time, a half-century from now. For example, if theyll be living in Florida, odds are strong their homes will be inland, far from what you and I today regard as the Florida coastline. Much of the coast will have been diminished, washed away by steadily rising tides.Likewise with New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle and other coastal communities. But by then, wont the engineers have learned how to build dikes and coastal walls to hold back the sea? Lets be hopeful, and say yes. But do you know how much those seawalls will cost to design, build and be maintained? Guess who will foot the bills for all that? Not you and me. Our grandchildren, thats who. They may need every nickel theyve got left, just to stay alive. Basic food costs may have skyrocketed because of the droughts and flooding that have become increasingly common as climate change batters our countrys agricultural production. Home insurance prices may go through the roof, as a result of the floods and tornadoes that, even in 2014, have grown in number. Hundreds of reputable scientists have warned that global warming will bring increased air pollution, insect-borne diseases and longer allergy seasons. The growth in the number and severity of heat waves will result in more savage wildfires. Greater reliance on air conditioning may further strain our already burdened electric power system. And so on. Before I go further, Ill acknowledge that strong counter-claims exist, disputing many of the global-warming threats. Added to the argument is the knowledge that even if the United States today abruptly reduced its carbon-dioxide emissions, the worldwide benefits would be limited unless major polluters such as China and India also join in the effort. So what shall we do? Nothing? Wring our hands, sit and hope? For many persons, the clinching argument against taking action is the enormous economic pain it will cause to all participants. Coal mines will be shut down. Industries will howl at the cost of installing CO2-reduction measures in their factories. Politicians from all parties will quake in their boots and then dig in their heels as antipollution measures are viewed, correctly, as threats to their constituents job security. To all of these objections, the climatechange activists reply, We agree with you. The cost of saving the planet will be enormous. But the price of inaction, of waiting too long, may well be the end of civilization as we know it, or hope to know it. We realize that anti-pollution efforts by the USA alone cannot be the full solution to global warming, but until or unless the United States leads the way, how likely will it be that other industrial nations will also join the fight? Today, Im not saying that every American should immediately choose up sides on the climate change controversy. Our country is already divided on too many other issues. What Im urging is that every thinking American resolve to learn as much about climate change as he or she can. If you own a computer or live near a library, you have access to hundreds of books and articles about our globe and its environment. If we keep an open mind and study until our eyeballs start to ache, we can become a self-appointed expert on this all-important topic. At that point, we can then decide what is the truth, and which policies (public and private) deserve our support. Then we can be fully confident about which wheels we should put our shoulders to. On this Fourth of July, if youd like to do something really patriotic, try this: Go to your computer; boot up climate change and start to read. Become a GWN a global warming nut. Your grandchildren may not be watching you today, but in 2064 they may be asking the question I posed in my second paragaph (above).Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

ShiettPhone: 727-397-5563LETTERSLands are valuable asset for drinking waterEditor: Our forward-thinking county leaders purchased the Cross Bar land in 1976 and the Al Bar land in 1990 to ensure that the residents of Pinellas County would always and forever have an independent source of drinking water. These lands are located in Pasco County on top of the very rich Floridan aquifer. Recently some have suggested selling these lands in exchange for capital that would go into our general fund. I strongly reject the notion that we should sell such a valuable asset for a one-time injection of cash into our budget. As most of you know I have voted twice to keep these lands in the hands of their rightful owners, the Pinellas County taxpayers. The land is paid for and makes a profit from the sale of pine needle and timber harvested on site. We simply do not know what the future will bring in regards to water availability. As leaders, it is imperative that we prioritize our communitys needs, and fresh drinking water must be looked at with the upmost importance. My office has, and continues to, receive telephone calls, letters and emails urging us to keep these important lands. I intend to do everything in my power to protect this most valuable asset. I would appreciate your readers emailing all the county commissioners and letting them know they do not want to sell this land! John Morroni Pinellas County commissioner Treasure IslandPark drives bigger wedge between Belleair residentsEditor Your Belleair Bee article on Belleairs Hunter Memorial Park implied the project is being funded with private money. The article does not say that taxpayer money, $108,625, is being spent by the town. It does not say that more town money will be spent to maintain Hunter Memorial Park. A quote in the article said, I hope the park will bring the town together. In fact, the park has driven a bigger wedge between those who believe when Belleair borrowed $10 million it should be careful how it spends money, concentrating on needs, not wants, and those who believe we should keep spending, borrowing, raising fees, and possibly raising taxes. Steve Johnson BelleairSeminole city manager will be sorely missedEditor: I was saddened to learn of the upcoming resignation of Frank Edmunds as city manager of the city of Seminole. While serving on the City Council, I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with Mr. Edmunds. Mr. Edmunds has provided the city with many years of wise counsel and his professionalism will be sorely missed. Frank, on behalf of the residents of Seminole, I thank you for your service and wish you well in your future endeavors. Peter Hofstra SeminoleDont give up the search for aircraftEditor: Malaysia Flight 370 March 8, 2014. Its a bird its a plane its Superman in quest of the mysterious disappearance of the huge aircraft with 239 aboard as the man of steel combed the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean with super X-ray vision to no avail, even for this cape crusader. Its not my intention here to disparage the gravity of this horrific and watery descent into this huge ocean, but rather an expression of hope as remotely more slim as time slips away in search of 370s location, just three months ago this June 8. Its gut-wrenching that family and friends continue to anguish in not knowing where the final disposition of the passengers. The search should not be abandoned, at least for now. Malaysian Air should share in the brunt of the bill. Art Bailey SeminoleReferendum all about St. PetersburgEditor: The November 1 percent transportation sales tax referendum for Pinellas County will raise Pinellas sales tax to 8 percent, the highest in the state of Florida, and if you think that this 14 percent tax hike spending increase will stop here, I will sell you the Brooklyn Bridge. Other cities rail systems have had cost overruns and future tax increases scheduled, and further, if approved, and light rail begins, but for some reason like low ridership, light rail fails to operate, then Pinellas County taxpayers must repay the government for their investment. Yes, there is a place for light rail in large metropolitan cities like New York City where there is little parking available for automobiles and many of the residents live in large, high-rise apartments, near the rail stations, whereas, in Pinellas County most residents live in homes or condos and we have sufficient parking for automobiles. Further, DOT is spending $4.8 million to speed work on U.S. 19 and will complete the project nine months early. Something else that has not been considered is the fact that after the winter residents have left the area for six months and the yearround residents have left for the mountains or other cooler climates, who will be riding that train from Clearwater to downtown St Petersburg? The answer is nobody, but who do you think will pay for the empty train? Right, you will. Former St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster had it right when he stated any talk of light rail must include Hillsborough County. Hillsborough County residents defeated this 1 percent transportation sales tax referendum in 2010 and it will not be considered anytime soon. This is all about downtown St. Petersburg and keeping the Rays downtown, at the cost to all Pinellas County residents. Hopefully, North Pinellas County residents will remember this when they vote in November and will vote accordingly.

Drain water from any containers around your home, cover your skin with clothing and mosquito repellent and cover doors and windows with screen to keep mosquitoes out of your home or business. The rainy season is especially challenging for Pinellas County Mosquito Control. Technicians have been aggressively treating known breeding grounds by ground and by air. They have also been busy lately responding to calls for help from county residents. Mosquitos can breed in as little as a quarter to a half inch of standing water. One of the best ways to slow down the growth of the mosquito population is to drain all standing water. The state DOH offers the following suggestions. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flowerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rainwater has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that arent being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. It is important to protect against being bitten to prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases. When outside, especially at dusk and dawn, it is important to wear shoes, socks, long pants and longsleeves. Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always Graphic courtesy FLORIDA DOHThe Florida Department of Health urges residents to drain and cover to help reduce the mosquito population and prevent bites.use repellents according to the label. Repeat applications according to directions. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches and patios to keep mosquitos out of the home.Mosquito-borne illnessesThe Department of Health in Pinellas County is cautioning residents about a viral mosquito-borne disease called chikungunya fever that has made its way to the Caribbean from Africa, Asia and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific. Travelers to those countries can carry the virus back to the United States and infect local mosquito populations. The state DOH reported six cases of chikungunya fever during the week of June 21 in persons that had international travel. The cases were reported in Broward, Leon, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, and Polk counties. So far this year, 48 travel-associated cases have been reported in residents from 20 counties. No cases have been reported in Pinellas. Symptoms of chikungunya fever include sudden high fever, severe joint pain and swelling, back pain, rash as well as headache, body ache, nausea, vomiting and redness around the eyes. Rarer symptoms involve the brain, eyes, heart, kidney or other organs. Health officials say fatal infections are rare, but chronic joint pain, arthritis, loss of energy and depression lasting weeks to years has been reported. Other mosquito-borne illnesses include West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, Dengue Fever, Malaria, Yellow Fever and Rift Valley Fever. Pinellas County participates in a sentinel program that alerts officials when mosquito-borne illness may be in the area. Technicians monitor the mosquito population through traps located around the county. Mosquito Control also monitors viruses through sentinel chickens caged in eight locations. Routine blood tests on these chickens detect virus antibodies, which serves as an early alert that a virus is present locally. If a virus is detected, the state DOH will issue an advisory.

PETERSBURG All Childrens Hospital pediatric cardiovascular surgeon Jeffrey Jacobs, M.D., led a team of 60 physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals from throughout the United States and world on a special medical mission to Kingston, Jamaica, to treat children for a variety of cardiac related medical conditions. Jacobs, as well as other physicians from All Childrens and healthcare organizations, spent one week in May partnering with Kingstons Bustamante Hospital for Children. They performed 11 cardiac surgeries, provided cardiac catheterizations and interventional cardiology procedures for several other children, and made sure dozens of others received medical management in an outpatient clinic. Under Jacobs leadership, the team has operated on more than 90 children since the first trip in 2006. In addition to doing surgery, we are also doing training, said Jacobs, director of the Andrews/Daicoff Cardiovascular Program at The Johns Hopkins All Childrens Heart Institute and professor of Cardiac Surgery at Johns Hopkins University. Education is a big part of our objective. While we want to operate on as many children as we can and save as many lives as we can, we also want to partner with the Jamaican team and empower them so they have the skill set to do more and more of this on their own. Money to fund the annual mission comes from the Cardiac Kids of Florida Foundation, which Jacobs founded. In addition to donated equipment, the mission has received support from Larry King Cardiac Foundation, St. Jude Medical, Edwards Life Sciences, Chain of Hope, Gift of Life, and Rotary International. All the doctors and nurses who make the trip donate their time. It takes a year to raise the money needed to ship equipment, arrange for transportation, housing and food to feed the team.Northside earns quality awardST.

Professional 010214 Summer swim team has quite a few benefits for kids This summer, my girls, age 8 and 9, decided they wanted to participate in the recreation centers swim team. Actually, my older daughter asked to do it, so my husband and I decided our younger daughter would do it too. The swimmers on the team are boys and girls ranging in age from about 5 to 15 years old. The two coaches are swimmers from the local high school. So far it has been a wonderful experience. We werent sure what we were getting into, but after several weeks of practice and a few fun competitions, our kids are hooked and so are we. The swim team lasts all summer long and is a non-competitive, which means the kids dont have to compete if they dont want to and the kids arent timed on their swim strokes. If the swimmers do want to compete, there is a fun type of competition on the weekends that is fast-paced, and everyone gets a ribbon. Each weekend, one of the recreation centers in the county holds a swim meet. The kids compete with other swimmers from the different recreation centers. The competition includes races from the four swim strokes: free-style, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. The coaches line up six kids and say, go, and the kids do one lap. As soon as the child finishes the race and gets out of the pool, they receive a ribbon for whatever place they came in. Its quick and so far the meets have lasted just a few hours. Each week, the kids have improved in their strokes and their self-esteem has improved. The first meet my kids did, they didnt want to do all the strokes because they were just learning them. By the second week, they decided they would give it a try and compete doing all the strokes, even the ones they didnt think they were as good at. The two of them ended up winning a first and second place ribbon in those events. They were really excited, and it was a great lesson for them to try something new. It is exciting to watch the other boys and girls competing. Most of the kids are pretty happy because no matter what, they get a ribbon. Whats nice too is that the parents of the other swimmers are encouraging all the kids, not just their own. Maybe its because we arent at a real competitive level right now, but it is very refreshing to not have parents being nasty when the kids are racing. My husband really gets into the meets. He videos the girls races and is so excited to share the videos with their grandparents. I did some research on the benefits of swimming and found there are quite a few. I knew that it was good exercise and easy on your body. You can lose weight doing it, and its great for your muscle tone and strength. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that two and a half hours a week can reduce the risk of chronic illness, and it can also improve a persons mental health. With all these great benefits, and the fact that my kids actually like to go to swim practice, I think we made the right choice for this summers activity.

Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 102 June 24, which creates the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act relating to leaving the scene of an accident. This bill increases the punishment for leaving the scene of a crash resulting in serious injury to a person. It imposes a mandatory minimum term for imprisonment of four years for a driver convicted of leaving the scene of a crash resulting in the death of a person. It increases the mandatory minimum term of imprisonment from two to four years for a driver convicted of leaving the scene of a crash resulting in the death of a person while driving under the influence. Finally, the bill imposes a minimum driver license revocation period of at least three years. The hearts and prayers of Ann and I go out to the Cohen family, and its in Aarons name that we hope to further protect Florida families with Senate Bill 102, which will create the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act, Scott said a news release. No one should have to suffer the loss of a loved one due to reckless driving, and with this important law, well be more effective in protecting families. Patty Cohen, widow of Aaron Cohen, said, The entire Cohen family and I are extremely thankful that Governor Scott will be signing the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act into law. We are hopeful that out of our familys tragedy, we have made a big step towards safer roads and a safer community for our children. While nothing will bring Aaron back, it gives us comfort to know that the change we have made may prevent other families from suffering as ours did. We are incredibly honored to have this very important law in his name. Aaron Cohen died after a hit-and-run crash in 2012 on Rickenbacker Causeway, which connects Miami to nearby barrier islands. Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, said, As we share the road with bike riders and runners they deserve to feel safe. This bill eliminates the incentive for motorists to leave the scene of an accident, and I thank Governor Scott for his support in helping to protect victims of this terrible crime. Cohen was riding a bike at the time of the crash. Tim Bustos, executive director of the Florida Bicycle Association said, For too long now, Florida has had one of the highest bicycle and pedestrian crash rates in the nation, and an inordinate number of these crashes involve motorists that leave the scene of a crash without rendering aid or assistance. We are hopeful this new legislation will act as a deterrent for motorists who may otherwise leave the scene after causing a crash, and will act as an incentive to stay at the scene.Bill requires safety seat for 4and 5-year-oldsTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott signed HB 225 June 24, which revises child restraint requirements to increase the safety of children passengers in motor vehicles. Current law requires every motor vehicle operator in Florida use a crash-tested, federally approved child restraint device for children 3 years or younger. HB 225 extends current requirements to include children 4 and 5 years old. As a father and grandfather, I know how important it is to make the safety of Floridas children a top priority, Scott said in a press release. With this initiative, we are working to ensure our children travel safely and remain protected on the road. We will continue to do all we can toPSTA, AARP host town hallDUNEDIN The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and AARP presented a town hall June 25 to discuss how transportation and mobility options can help Pinellas seniors live on their own terms. More than 50 seniors and residents attended the open forum at the Hale Senior Activity Center in Dunedin to hear from several speakers about how current PSTA services and potential future services through the Greenlight Pinellas plan would benefit the regions seniors. In addition to an overall 65 percent increase in PSTA bus service, 80 percent more weekend service and extended early morning and late night transit service, seniors would benefit under Greenlight Pinellas from increased evening and weekend DART door-to-door transit for those unable to use traditional bus service. There also would an increase in frequency of connector community circulator buses for easier access to shopping, medical appointments and community services. Transportation is a key component of livable communities, because by 2025, one in five drivers will be over age 65, said Laura Cantwell, associate state director of AARP. When you dont have transportation options, it impacts your physical and social isolation, it impairs your physical and mental wellbeing, and it increases healthcare costs and compromises seniors ability to age in place. Seniors over age 65 who no longer drive make 15 percent fewer trips to the doctor thats something that PSTA, our connector buses and our DART paratransit service can help with, said Brad Miller, CEO of PSTA. But mobility options for seniors means more than just going to the doctor, it means being able to spend time with family and friends, it means being able to be a part of our community, and it means freedom and independence. The transit system we have now isnt adequate for those over 65, but it isnt adequate for the rest of our community either. We have a lot of college students and younger people who could be riding, so Greenlight Pinellas is really about the future, said Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala. One of the first things businesses looking to relocate to this area ask us is, whats your public transportation like? And Greenlight Pinellas will give us a great answer to that question. An AARP study found that 85 percent of seniors are extremely/very concerned about fuel prices, leading many to seek other transportation options such as public transit. The number one reason seniors in the Pinellas area move into assisted living facilities is the inability to drive anymore and lack of transportation options.News from Tallahasseekeep every Floridian safe, so they can enjoy everything our great state has to offer with their loved ones. Several local legislators added their support to the governors action. Governor Scott has proven his dedication to Florida families once again by signing this bill into law, said Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. HB 225 will foster great changes to keep our young children safe and secure as they travel in our state. As a father of three, the safety of my kids on the road is my top priority, said Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg. This legislation is about common sense safety standards, and I thank Governor Scott for signing it into law to protect Floridas children. My fellow legislators and I stand with the Governor in his support and signing of HB225 to strengthen safety regulations for our children, said Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater. It is crucial that our children are protected with the proper restraint devices so they can travel without harm.

The 31-acre park features a boardwalk around a three-acre pond and through old Florida woods. A biking and walking trail surrounds its perimeter. A visitor taking an early morning or late afternoon stroll through the preserve with a discerning eye may see a variety of wildlife including amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds, and plant life. The following is such a journey, captured by local photographer Jim Layfield June 25. Photos by JIM LAYFIELDSummer bait numbers are on the riseGathering enough bait for the day is key, as most anglers know. However, finding enough pilchards to make a difference has been a real challenge lately. Fortunately for us, it appears we now may be on the verge of a major change. Masses of juvenile pilchards have flooded our bays and beaches. These tiny baits will grow quickly and soon theyll be big enough to tempt most any game fish. These smaller baits can be used in a couple of situations. Mackerel, jack crevalle and ladyfish numbers have increased with the arrival of the fry bait and can often be seen busting through the pods of bait. Using a quarter inch mesh cast net will allow you to net the baits without getting a bunch hung up in the net. Anchor up in the area that the bait is the thickest and toss out handfuls of freebees. This should bring the fish right behind the boat. Gag grouper opened this week and given the long closure fishing for them should be excellent for a while. Target ledges and artificial reefs for best action. Ledges as shallow as 20 foot are holding keeper gags as weve found out on recent mangrove snapper trips. Use live pinfish or grass grunts and be ready to turn the fish away from the structure. These shallower spots demand your full attention. Blacktip sharks are thick in certain areas through out the Intracoastal Waterway. Deeper cuts and channels are prime holding spots for these 3to 5-foot sharks. Using a chum block and frisky pinfish, weve been able to find nonstop action on these hard fighters as long as the tide is moving. Using monofilament leaders and a large circle hook has made a big difference in the amount of bites versus using a steel leader.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Her father hails from Mexico and her mother is a native Texan. As a child, she experienced festive, live Latin music frequently: Her parents often hosted parties at which La Banda music of her fathers home country would flow all night long. It was apparent early on that Jessy was a true musical prodigy. According to her biography provided by Monterey International, she began playing piano at age 4 and spent most of her childhood as a competitive artist, performing at major conferences, competitions and festivals. These childhood experiences and the discipline and work ethic she gained from them would prove to be a great testing ground for her future career in the industry. In addition to her familys cultural heritage, Jessy also sought inspiration from other musical wellsprings. She was a huge fan of Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane, but also enjoyed listening to pop. She graduated from USC with a degree in jazz studies where she was named Most Outstanding Jazz Student of her class. After graduation, she didnt waste any time contemplating career decisions: SheJazz, Latin rhythms and R&BContemporary jazz artist Jessy J to perform at Largo Cultural Center Photo by NICOLAS ZURCHER/LARGO CULTURAL CENTERTouring in support of her new album Second Chances, Jessy J takes the stage at Largo Cultural Center on July 16. jumped straight into recording sessions with artists like Michael Buble and she toured with The Temptations (2005-6) and Jessica Simpson.

Authors and Publishers selected this multitalented musician for its prestigious ASCAPLUS writing award. Jessys third album, Hot Sauce, was released in September 2011 on Heads Up International. The album highlights her collaborations with some of todays most prominent contemporary jazz musicians, including guitarists Paul Brown and Ray Parker Jr., keyboardists Joe Sample and Gregg Karukas, and drummer Harvey Mason of Fourplay. Hot Sauce showcases eight original songs along with adventurous new arrangements of Francis Anthony Eg Whites pop hit Leave Right Now and Duke Ellingtons jazz classic In a Sentimental Mood.Second ChancesLast year, Jessy J released her fourth studio album, Second Chances. The self-produced recording features collaborations with Grammy Award nominated keyboardist-producer Jeff Lorber, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Norman Brown, renowned bassist Jimmy Haslip (formerly with The Yellowjackets) and legendary pianist Joe Sample. As a press release promoting Second Chances points out, the album is a major milestone for the artist as she takes over the reigns as the producer of the new album. Simultaneously, Second Chances represents a course change for Jessy, who purposely set out to meld her love for jazz and Latin rhythms with R&B grooves. The album title, Second Chances, developed out of the theme that its never too late to try again. Getting a second chance to do something that you messed up on the first time, Jessy explains in the press release. In this case, for me it was with something that happened the previous year. I realized that this year I had a second chance and every day is new, is fresh. The title track is really an inspirational song about doing something you really want to do. Some of the songs on Second Chances, released by Shanachie Entertainment, feature two in the title including the first single, Listen 2 The Groove, co-written by Lorber; Tango for Two, Dos, Twice and Double Trouble. The 10-song set features eight originals and two covers including the Roberta Flack hit Feel Like Makin Love and the Sergio Mendes classic Magalenha. I like to play music that people will recognize and connect to and be familiar with and also play music thats original, that really inspires them and creates new memories, Jessy says in the press release. Jessy, a big fan of s and s music, chose to include Flacks hit Feel Like Makin Love. Roberta is a gorgeous singer, she says. We felt that we could redo it in a way that would make it special again and also make it more current. I always thought of it kind of in a Robin Thicke mode with the recurring guitar theme. It also has a Brazilian vibe, the vocals are laid back and almost in a During the films, the museum galleries will be closed. Visitors can return during normal museum operating hours to view the permanent collection and special exhibition, Marvels of Illusion, which runs through Oct. 12. The films will be offered rain or shine films will be shown inside the museums Raymond James Community Room in the case of inclement weather. For information, call 823-3767 or visit TheDali.org. CLASSICS, from page 1BWith her first recording, Tequila Moon, she realized her dream.Tequila Moon and beyondJessy J released her debut studio album, Tequila Moon, in March 2008 on Peak Records. All songs on the album were mixed, recorded and produced by Paul Brown. The album featured a number of talented studio musicians, such as Dave Beyer on drums and percussion, Paul Brown on guitar, Kiki Ebsen on piano and strings and Richie Gajate-Garcia on percussion. Tequila Moon earned high praise from critics and helped propel the hopeful musician beyond session-player status. Her 2009 follow-up, True Love, reinforced her standing as a talented newcomer to the contemporary jazz scene. The hit Tropical Rain from True Love reached the No. 1 spot on the Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown, as well as the R&R and Billboard jazz charts. Jessy appeared on the October 2009 covers of Saxophone Journal and Latina Style Magazine in February 2010. In September 2010, the American Society of Composers, Mendes classic Magalehna, one of her all-time favorite Brazilian tunes. On Dos a lovely guitar intro gives way to Jessy on both flute and soprano saxophone. That song is a really sexy song, she says. Its about two things: the good and the bad. Sections of the music had a reflective feeling that was dark and then other parts of the music were light. We wanted to have the alter ego two things. One of my heroes is Grover Washington Jr. Hes my favorite soprano saxophonist and I always think of him when Im playing that instrument. Second Chances may be all about getting the chance to do something over again, but for Jessy this album is a celebration of firsts as well. In addition to taking on the role of producer for the first time, she was able to work with two new artists on her wish list through her collaborations with Jeff Lorber and Norman Brown. The Mexican-American saxophonist/singer/songwriter has a lot to look forward to as she continues to enjoy the success of her hard work and dedication. Its a great life and Im grateful for it, Jessy says. Its going to be a good year. Her performance at Largo Cultural Center promises to be equally good with a blistering mix of contemporary jazz, Latin and samba rhythms and enchanting melodies from Jessys new album, Second Chances, and her previous releases. JAZZ, from page 1Bhushed tone. And its completely re-harmonized. I like arranging music and harmonizing it. Jessys passion for Latin music shines through on the Sergio Jessy J performs July 16 at Largo Cultural Center. Arts & entertainmentSt. Petersburg City Theatre to host auditionsST. PETERSBURG St. Petersburg City Theatre will host auditions for Black Comedy Monday and Tuesday, July 21-22, 7 p.m., at the theater, 4025 31st St. S., St. Petersburg. There will be a six-week rehearsal period. Actors are encouraged to attend the first night of auditions as the second night will be considered a callback and only a limited number of new applicants will be seen. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Casting needs are as follows: Brindsley Miller, age 19-27: A young sculptor, intelligent and attractive, but nervous and uncertain of himself. A physically demanding role requiring athletic abilities. Carol Melkett, age 19-25: His fiance. A young debutante; very pretty, very spoiled; very silly. Miss Furnival, age 55-70: Prissy and refined. Clad in the blouse and sack skirt of her gentility, her hair in a bun, her voice in a bun, she reveals only the repressed gestures of the middle-class spinster until alcohol undoes her. Colonel Melkett, age 55-70: Carols commanding father. Brisk, barky, yet given to sudden vocal calms, which suggest a deep and alarming instability. It is not only the constant darkness that gives him his look of wide-eyed suspicion. Harold Gorringe, age 35-55: The bachelor owner of an antiquechina shop, and Brindleys neighbor. His friendship is highly conditional and possessive: sooner or later, payment for it will be asked. A specialist in emotional blackmail, he can become hysterical when slighted, or (as inevitably happens) rejected. He is older than Brindsley by several years. Schuppanzigh, age 35-55: A German refugee, chubby, cultivated, and effervescent. He is an entirely happy man, delighted to be in England, even if this means being employed full time by the London Electricity Board. Clea, age 19-27: Brindsleys ex-mistress. Mid-20s, emotional, bright and mischievous. The challenge to her to create a dramatic situation out of the darkness is ultimately irresistible. Georg Bamberger: An elderly millionaire art collector, easily identifiable as such. Like the electrician, he is a German. Black Comedy, written by Peter Shaffer and directed by Rob Colwell, will run Sept. 12-28 at St. Petersburg City Theatre as part of the theaters 90th season. Set in 1965, Black Comedy involves a struggling artist about to meet both his fiances father and a major art investor on the same evening. In an attempt to impress, the artist has borrowed a room full of antique furniture from his vacationing neighbor. As preparations are made for the evening, the apartment building loses power. Much more is revealed about the artist than he ever wanted brought to light. Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Matinees will be Sundays, 2 p.m. For information, call 866-2059 or visit www.spcitytheatre.org.Belly dance show features Lacey SanchezST.

Brace your garage door 1. After Hurricane Andrew, engineers looked at how the homes in South Florida failed during the high winds. Four out of five homes that had major structural damage lost their garage doors first. Older garage doors in good condition can be braced with retrofit kits available at most home centers. New garage doors must meet stringent wind load requirements. 2. Protect your windows 2. By shuttering your windows with a code-approved, commercially available product or a minimum of 7/16 exterior plywood (FBC 2010 1609.1.2), you can increase your homes ability to withstand wind by one category of storm strength. In other words, a home that could survive a Category 2 storm can now handle a Category 3. If the wind gets into your home, it can force the roof upward, possibly allowing high winds to tear it off. 3. Brace your gable end roof 3. A gabled roof has two slopes that come together to form a ridge or a peak at the top. Homes with gabled roofs are more likely to suffer collapse of the end wall from high winds because they are often not braced properly during construction. To learn about bracing and other techniques, go to: www. floridadisaster.org/hrg/index.asp.

The second annual Madeira Beach Craft Festival will run Saturday and Sunday, July 5-6, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Madeira Way between Gulf Boulevard and 150th Avenue. The juried outdoor festival will feature original and affordable crafts as well as unique gift items and functional art. Prices are set to suit all budgets and range from $3 to $3,000. The eclectic mix of original handcrafted art, crafts and functional art will appeal to craft enthusiasts as well as serious shoppers looking for unique gifts. A Green Market will offer a wide array of exotic plants, as well as dips and other gourmet items. Admission is free and open to the public. In order to ensure a superior event with quality affordable original crafts, all of the local and national crafters have been hand-selected from hundreds of applicants by American Craft Endeavors, the largest producer of craft fairs throughout the country. The festival will feature a wide variety of craft media including folk art, pottery, personalized gifts, handmade clothing, basket weaving, beaded utensils, candles, cork assemblage, fabric design, fiber quilts, fused wax & glass, hair accessories, handbags & accessories, handmade cards, leather, mosaic, wood, painted wood, plaster craft and stained glass. Following is a partial list of exhibitors scheduled to participate in this years craft festival: Steve and Judy Archbold of Ossian, Indiana Wood Gissell and William Barbour of Sebring Jewelry Mickey D. and Mike Bradham of Homosassa Ceramics Randy Brooks of Fort White Sculpture Kaysea and Matthew Bruce of Gainesville Pet accessories Janet Campagna of South Orleans, Massachusetts Clothing Walter Catts of Palmetto Furniture Melanie Cech of Spring Hill Glass Dennis Collins of Naples Jewelry Lucie Davis of Oakland Park Fiber Jessica Elwood of Bradenton Painting Carol Generoso of Osprey Jewelry Randy Giamporcaro of Tampa Jewelry Segundo (Luis) Gomez of Miami Jewelry Annette and Gerry Kapfer of St. Pete Beach Jewelry Sindi Karman of Melbourne Home goods Peter Lakiotis of Clearwater Pet accessories Cynthia Linden of Gulfport Mixed media Lorrie Mason of Tampa Jewelry Andres Medina of St. Petersburg Fiber Malinda Ratliff of West Palm Beach Home goods John Roessler of Brooksville Jewelry Rasa Saldaitis of Gulfport Painting Robin Short of Gulfport Fiber Denise Smith of Weirsdale Jewelry Trae Stokes of Pinellas Park Food Lora and Bob Thomas of Sarasota Pottery Miriam Valido of Lutz Miscellaneous Marina Vega of Kissimmee Jewelry Joe Weinstein of Clearwater Stone Richard Wise of Lady Lake Photography Barrie Wolfson of Seminole Home goods According to American Craft Endeavors, the jury process is ongoing and this list of exhibitors has not been finalized. Annette and Gerry Kapfer of St. Pete Beach have become regular exhibitors at American Craft Endeavors shows. According to her website, Annette spent most of her childhood and early teenage years just outside of Oslo, Norway, where she fell in love with nature and the ever changing oceans. Long summers days on the water was spent digging by the shore and exploring sea life, Annette said in her artist biography. After college and marriage, my husband and I decided city life was no longer on top of our list. I missed the sounds and smell of salt water and could not really get used to New York City. We packed up and left New York for Florida and St. Pete Beach. Already a long time collector of glass objects, it was a natural transition for Annette to create her own aquariums in her studio using dichroic glass. The magical properties of this glass with its bright colors and intense reflective qualities are the perfect palette for capturing the spirit of the restless ocean and its communities of colorful sea creatures, she said. My kiln-fused dichroic glass is creatively patch-worked, almost quilted, creating 3D views of natures art. Each piece is signed, individually handmade and completely unique. Using only the highest quality art glass, Annette creates each piece using a technique similar to that of a mosaic artist. Each piece is fired and carefully annealed to eliminate stress in the glass and to ensure strength and durability so your customers can consider them heirloom quality, she explained. While my technique is time consuming, the results are appreciated as stunning earrings and pendants are admired by jewelry collectors and nature lovers alike. Annette resides in St. Pete Beach with her husband Gerry, their daughter Karianne and their dachshund Bubba. Another Pinellas crafter participating in this years festival is Robin Short of Gulfport. Short has been quilting and sewing for most of her life and has been inspired by her mother, Ellen Plankey, who is a well-known award winning artist. Short loves putting together great fabrics, colors and high quality products to create usable, and unique items for her customers. Short has been exhibiting her work with American Craft Endeavors for more than five years. Artist Rasa Saldaitis of Pinellas Park was born in 1965 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Since the seventh grade, art was one of my specialties and I have loved art ever since, Saldaitis said in a biography that appears on her website. By the eighth grade, I was attending art school and graduated top of my class. She went on to attend the V. Muchina Academy of Applied Arts University in St. Petersburg, Russia, studying realistic drawing and painting. From 1984 to 1989, she was being trained to be an instructor at Siauliai Pedagogical University in Siauliai, Lithuania. During that time, I competed in many art competitions and student art shows, Saldaitis said. With my high grades I was very successful in my shows and competitions. I received my masters degree from Siauliai Pedagogical University in 1989. She and her husband began exhibiting and selling their artwork in eastern and western Europe, eventually opening their own art studio in 1991 becoming one of the first private business owners to establish a business after the Soviet Union collapsed. In 1994, the couple and their two children moved to the United States, first settling in Chicago, Illinois and later relocating to Pinellas. We continued to create and sell our art work in galleries as well as art festivals, Saldaitis said. My oil and acrylic paintings represent my love for color and the world around me. I feel that every artist dips his brush in his soul and paints his own nature into his paintings. Richard D. Wise is a nature photographer based in Lady Lake.

PETERSBURG Chinese rock and roll takes center stage with a lecture by author/musician Jonathan Campbell and the first concert in the area by ReTROS (Rebuilding the Rights of Statues). These special events will be presented in conjunction with the major exhibition, My Generation: Young Chinese Artists, which continues at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg and the Tampa Museum of Art through Sunday, Sept. 28. Red Rock: The Long, Strange March of Chinese Rock & Roll An Introduction to Chinas Contemporary Music Scene by Jonathan Campbell, will be presented Wednesday, July 16, 6:30 p.m. Cost to attend the lecture is $5 and includes admission to the entire museum. Campbell lived in Beijing from 2000 to 2010 and was immersed in the rock scene as a drummer, chronicler, promoter, agent and friend. His writing has appeared in a range of international publications. He has booked Chinese tours for dozens of bands from around the world and taken Chinese bands to Europe and the United States. The lecture will focus on the history of yaogun (Chinese rock), which emerged not from underground music scenes, but from a near vacuum after the turmoil of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) and its resulting disillusionment. Campbell has attended international music conferences as part of Chinese delegations and preached the yaogun gospel at music and literary festivals, schools, universities and venues around the globe. He has been called a stalwart of the Chinese music scene, an instrumental behind-thescenes (figure), the busiest man in Beijing showbiz, and the Dr. [Norman] Bethune of Chinas rock scene. He now lives in Toronto. Red Rock: The Long, Strange March of Chinese Rock & Roll is Campbells first book. Copies will be available for purchase in the museum store. He will sign copies after his lecture. For information, visit jonathanwcampbell.com. Coinciding with the museums recurring UNCHartTED Random Acts of Culture, which are presented third Thursdays, 5 to 8 p.m., ReTROS (Rebuilding the Rights of Statues) will perform offsite Thursday, July 17, 7 to 11 p.m., at Local 662, 662 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Tickets are $12 for the concert only or $15 for a combo ticket that includes the concert and lecture by Jonathan Campbell on July 16 at the MFA. Tickets can be purchased online at www.finearts.org/red-rock/, at the MFA, or at the door the night of the performance. ReTROS released their debut EP, Cut Off, on Modern Sky Records in 2005. During the recording sessions, the group attracted the attention of the legendary Brian Eno, who provided guest keyboards on several tracks. ReTROS has combed the Internet (which is strictly regulated in China), black-market CDs, mix-tapes and the music they have heard abroad for inspiration. Frontman Hua Dong cites bands like Bauhaus, Joy Division, Television, and Pere Ubu as some of his greatest influences. Raised by Nanjing intellectuals, Hua Dong was exposed to rock at an early age and began writing songs and playing instruments in his teens. After studying abroad in Germany, he returned to Nanjing, where he began drumming for seminal Chinese rockers PK14. He met bassist Liu Min in the Nanjing underground music scene, and the pair eventually drifted to Beijing in 2003, where they were introduced to drummer Ma Hui. Hua Dong switched to guitar, and the indie-rock band Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues was born. The trio soon began electrifying Beijing audiences with their darkly riveting, powerful performances. In 2007, ReTROS toured the United States and performed at SXSW (South by Southwest Festival) in Austin, which garnered press in the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Village Voice, among others. While in New York, the band appeared on ABCs The Mix and was later featured on NPR. ReTROS has since released its first fulllength album, Watch Out! Climate Has Changed, Fat Mum Rises.
