TORRESLARGO Since September, teen volunteers at Largo Public Library have been constructing 27 layouts in different themes to turn the library into a miniature golf course. The whole project will come together for Book Maniacs Mini Golf, an inaugural fundraiser for the teen program Saturday, Aug. 9, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the library, 120 Central Park Drive. We have tons of themes, explained teen volunteer Nicole Harrison, 18, of Largo. Music, Candy Land, Quidditch, under the sea, bugs, fantasy, Seven Wonders of the World, space or astronomy. Nine of the holes are designed to be easy for younger participants, set up in the childrens area as the Toddler Tee-Off Course. The rest of the 18 holes are for older children and adults in the Family Fairway Course. Everything for the putt-putt, because were doing it in the library, is book-themed, said Julie Gonser, library youth services assistant. Thats not hard to do just because there are books about everything. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESPinellas County Interim Chief of Staff Bruce Moeller, left, answers questions about the Regional 9-1-1 Center from Commissioners Janet Long and John Morroni during a July 31 tour of the Sheriffs Administration Building and Public Safety Complex. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Recently, Largo commissioners asked city staff to erect some signs that would mark where the West Bay downtown district began. The sign that went up last week wasnt quite what commissioners had envisioned. Commissioner Michael Smith called it cheesy and said he had hoped for something more than a street sign. The problem is the city doesnt have a set standard for what Largo signs should look like. Its facility, wayfinding and gateway signs sometimes use the city logo, sometimes the old clock tower logo. Theyre usually blue, but sometimes green. They dont have a set font, sometimes say city of Largo and other times just Largo. In short, there is no unified theme to any of Largos signs. Weve never, as a city organization, had a comprehensive sign program, said Assistant City Manager Michael Staffopoulos during the commission meeting Aug. 5. Weve never identified what our sign standards should be: what our colors should be, what minimum lettering or wording should be on the sign, what kind of fonts we should use, what types of materials should be used and what type of general appearance our signs should take. Further, several of the citys facility signs especially the Largo Municipal Complex one in front of City Hall and ones in front of its police and fire stations are in disrepair and need to be replaced. Its gateway signs, welcoming drivers into the city, also are in poor condition. Some, due to annexations, arent in the right place. The need presented an opportunity, Staffopoulos said. Along the facility signs, the city could redesign its wayfinding signs, demarking the downtown, trails and community streets, as well as its gateway and facility signs. Commissioners could choose to hire an outside company to create a new brand for the city, Staffopoulos explained. Such branding efforts cost the cities of Clearwater and Dunedin $100,000 and $76,000, respectively, and took about a year to complete. Or, commissioners could ask the citys own communityPhotos by JULIANA A.

By SUZETTE PORTER and JULIANA TORRESLARGO Ten years ago, Pinellas County prepared for what could have been its biggest disaster in modern history. On Aug. 13, 2004, tracking maps showed Hurricane Charley taking aim at Tampa Bay specifically Pinellas County. Evacuations were underway. An emergency order and curfews were in place. The county braced for the worst. Pinellas dodged a bullet that day. Charley made landfall just after 3 p.m. further south in Lee County as a Category 4 hurricane with winds in excess of 150 mph. The hurricane traveled through central Florida leaving a huge path of destruction before exiting just south of Daytona Beach. Florida weathered four hurricanes in 2004 Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. Hundreds died. Property damage added up to billions of dollars. Fortunately, none of those hurricanes touched Pinellas. Although, weaker systems did pass through, causing some minor damage. As Pinellas reached out to its neighbors and emergency management workers came together in the aftermath of Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne, officials began to realize that changes were required to better prepare for the future. Pinellas began updating its disaster plans. Work started on hurricane hardening of buildings, expansion of shelter space, training for staff and educating the public. A key piece to the countys plan was construction of new facilities designed to withstand the force of a Category 5 hurricane. One of the lessons learned in 2004 was how difficult it is to respond after a disaster when critical infrastructure fails. A new two-story Public Works Operations facility and vehicle storage building opened Aug. 12, 2007, at 22211 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater. The buildings were designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. In case of an emergency, the operations facility would serve as an emergency center See COMPLEX, page 4A See GOLF, page 4A See SIGNS, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . . .8A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .10A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .12A Pet connection . . . . . . . . .9A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .13A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .11A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Janelle AlbertsonVIEWPOINTSDebra SaundersA common sense position on marijuana.

Stevens Exceptional Student Education Center in Clearwater, was the featured speaker at the breakfast meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Largo/Mid-Pinellas Aug. 1. The Paul B. Stevens school is part of the Pinellas County public school system and has a large number of students on autism spectrum. These students are mostly nonverbal and have significant problems in redirecting their behavior when they are unable to communicate a want or need. Usually very intelligent, they get easily frustrated in their inability to communicate, which often leads to behavior outbursts. As a result the school is looking to fund multi-sensory equipment to help stimulate students senses, which will help them with eye contact, tactile input and verbal responses. The equipment is interactive, and will help show the students cause and effect, which will help them develop motor skills, how to control their environment, and ultimately lead to independence. This equipment will cost about $4,700, and the school already has 12 percent of that donated. Anyone who wishes to help can visit www.finditfunditflorida.com/pinellas/grant/3 749. Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization founded in 1915 and dedicated to improving the lives of children through local Kiwanis clubs. The Largo Kiwanis Club is accepting new members, and meets twice a month: for a breakfast on first Fridays, 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., at Royal Palms, 200 Lake Ave. NE., Largo, and for dinner on second Thursdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Roosterfish Grill, 776 Missouri Ave., also in Largo.

GOLF, from page 1A4A Largo Leader, August 7, 2014 The library will be open to regular patrons during the event, which will raise money for the librarys Teen Room. A vendor shopping area will feature local businesses such Coldstone Creamery, Ready Set Yo, local crafters and Massage and Wellness, which will be offering chair massages. A couple of staff members will pull Renaissanceand Westernthemed carts around the library to sell snacks like kettle corn and cookies. Staff also will be selling 50-cent chance tickets for a drawing for gift baskets loaded with donated goodies like massage gift cards, free haircuts and facials, board games, pet supplies and pool lounges. Since this is the first event like it, Gonser said she isnt sure how much the teens will raise. Past fundraisers, such as the teens anime conventions, brought in $1,500 to $2,000. So far, just the idea of library mini golf has garnered a lot of interest. People are having a hard time with a miniature golf course inside the library, Gonser said. I think were going to have a lot of people here just because they want to see what it looks like. Free tickets were given to children 12 and younger who were successful in the librarys summer reading program. If they completed their summer reading, they received a free ticket for the golf. Hopefully thatll bring their families in, Gonser said. The project has been a lot of work so far. The Greater Largo Library Foundation donated the golf balls and holes for the course, and the local Lowes donated several items the teens used in construction of the layouts. But Gonser has been gathering materials saving boxes, Styrofoam and packing materials from shipments of books and materials to the library since June of last year. Its been a long time coming, she said. The Teen Library Council helped brainstorm themes and ideas for the different layouts. We tried to go by the area of the library (to decide) what the theme was, Gonser said. Of course, now theyve rearranged a lot of the books, so it might not make sense. Still, a mystery-themed hole has been designed near the fiction section. The fantasy theme was supposed to be featured near the fantasy section, but those books have been integrated into the regular fiction section. One of Gonsers own projects was a 3D rendering of the Largo library made out of a poster, cut out and glued onto the spines of old books. The library will be featured on the first hole of the course. The teens wanted to build an anime-themed layout for the Teen Room itself, as manga posters decorate many of the walls in the area. Harrison built the Pokmon Pikachu out of three cinder blocks and papier-mch before the teens ran into a problem. We couldnt think of anything else for it, Harrison explained. So the theme was changed to the board game, Candy Land. Theres more that you can do with candy than you can do with anime, Harrison said. A week before the event, the teens were still painting pool noodles in bright, candy-themed colors for the layout. They had already built the kid game pieces and Harrison papier-mch a Gloppy the Molasses Monster to replace the bright Pikachu. Its been fun, coming up with ideas, Gonser said. Theyre having a good time. About 20 teens have worked on the project off and on since its launch. Gonser hopes about 10 teens will be able to make it out on Saturday to volunteer during the event. Just the creating of the event has been beneficial to them, she said. It brings out their creativity whether they know they have it or not, Gosner said. Harrison said she is no stranger to crafts. Papier-mch animals are just the beginning of her contributions to the golf course. On her own time, she constructed the buildings for the Seven Wonders of the World: an Egyptian pyramid, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Eiffel Tower. You should see my bedroom. I have a huge bin of just newspapers, and Ive got heating lamps all over the place, Harrison said. The former home-schooler has graduated and is attending classes at St. Petersburg College. But she stuck around to continue volunteering this summer because she wanted to see this project through. Shes been a teen volunteer since she was 13, and has helped out with the library even before then. Ive always liked to volunteer. I try to do as much as I can to give back to the community, Harrison said. Gosner set up the mini-golf layouts in a trial run two weeks before the event, to make sure everything worked. From there, it was all about fine-tuning the pieces and finishing the painting. I know its not going to be perfect the first year. You want it to be as interesting and as flawless as you can get, she said. Gosner said she hopes to make mini golf the teens major fundraiser for the next four or five years. Each year, the teens will make upgrades and repairs and maybe add another layout or two. The event should be beneficial for the library itself. Photos courtesy of JULIE GONSERThe teen volunteers at Largo library have built several miniature golf layouts including the Harry Potter-themed Quidditch course, above left, and a mystery theme, above right. Below, Nicole Harrison, 18, of Largo adds some finishing touches to an under-the-sea element.The current Administration Building is located in an old nursing home built in the 1950s. Gualtieri said the new building would provide really effective services for everybody for a very, very long time to come. Deputies now have onsite access to training equipment and an armory where they can clean and maintain firearms. There are new classrooms and a multipurpose read-off room with seating for 66, plus a computer lab with training space for 40, which doubles the current capacity. Another new feature Gualtieri pointed out is enhanced security. The new building is equipped with magnetometers at the front door. The new foyer is almost twice the size of the foyer at the old administration building. A separate window and adjoining meeting space is available in the foyer to receive paperwork. Interview rooms are located in a quiet location providing more privacy. A separate entrance makes Human Resources and Records department more accessible to citizens. The sheriff also has a new fleet maintenance garage with up to 11 repair bays available. Communications is critical during an emergency. The new public safety complex contains all the critical components of the countywide radio system. In addition, it includes a 20-channel stand-alone radio site to provide countywide radio coverage to mobile radios in the event of a catastrophe. The countys vital data will be protected inside the 3,800-square-foot state-of-the-art data center also housed inside the new facility. The Public Safety Complex has a parking garage with space for 677 vehicles. It has its own central energy plant, which has been designed for future expansion. The cost of the new facility is about $81.4 million paid for with Penny for Pinellas funds. This particular project became the centerpiece of Penny for Pinellas, said Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard. Im happy to say that this project is on budget and on schedule. The project is not quite finished. Were probably about 85 percent complete, maybe 95 percent complete, Gualtieri said. Theres still a lot to be done. still things were tweaking.Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAt left, the front entrance of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Administration Building stands at the center of the $81.4 million complex. Above, each of the workstations in the Regional 9-1-1 Center feature five screens, allowing dispatchers to monitor the location of each law enforcement vehicle in the county while taking information from callers and contacting appropriate authorities. The desks themselves can be raised using hydraulics to allow the dispatchers to either stand or sit during their shifts. Supervisors can monitor the entire floor from a raised platform, pictured in the background. Below, the new Emergency Operations Center boasts 118 workstations grouped in five rows of essential services made up of county and community representatives needed in the event of a major disaster: Coast Guard, damage assessment, infrastructure, human services, emergency services and governmental liaisons. Below left, service technician Steve Sitton works on Sheriffs Office vehicle in the new fleet maintenance garage, which now has up to 11 repair bays. The new garage includes storage for parts, which are all tracked as they replace old parts in fleet vehicles.Well be all over the library, Gosner said. There are people its funny they dont even know we have a second floor, and weve been here almost 10 years. The library will be almost fully staffed on Saturday. Hopefully, well have a good response and everybody will have a good time, Gosner said. The kids are looking forward to it.Photo by JULIANA A. TORRES COMPLEX, from page 1Aand shelter for public works staff and first responders. The storage building would house necessary equipment. But, Pinellas also needed a facility for the Sheriffs Office, emergency operations and 9-1-1 dispatchers that also could withstand the force of a Category 5 storm. County commissioners approved a $68.5 million agreement to begin construction of a new administration building for the sheriffs office and public safety complex Aug. 7, 2012. Nearly two years later, commissioners took their first tour July 31 of the new 208,403-square-foot facility located in a nonevacuation zone at 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo. This is a hardened facility, Interim Chief of Staff Bruce Moeller told those attending the tour. We have also two generators outside that are redundant. The two 2.5-megawatt generators can supply the facility for more than 96 hours. Additional fuel supplies are stored onsite to resupply the generators. Wells are available to provide water. Wastewater storage is available. Because, again, we have to assume that everyone outside has failed, Moeller said. Thats why there are satellite phones. The building has the capacity to hold about 700 people during activation of the Emergency Operations Center. Those people will have all they need to respond before, during and after a storm. The first floor is equipped with a kitchen with a walk-in refrigerator and freezer, as well as storage for dry goods. There also is space for a refrigerated trailer and tie downs to ensure adequate supplies of food. In addition, there is an infirmary, which will be staffed by Sunstar paramedics during an emergency. A laundry room is available for emergency workers. The second floor houses the Emergency Management Department. The space includes 118 desks; four break-out rooms for meetings with up to 12 people; two conference rooms with teleconferencing equipment; a media room with nine workstations; space with eight workstations for public information officers; a logistics section with capacity for 14 workstations; a citizens information center with a capacity of 32 people per shift; a radio room with seven workstations for auxiliary communications services; and storage for communications equipment and educational materials. The old Emergency Operations Center at 400 S. Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater is currently being dismantled and repurposed. The third floor of the facility is home to the countys new consolidated Regional 9-1-1 Center. It serves as the public safety answering point for the entire county. The 9-1-1 telecommunicators are expected to answer as many as a million calls during the first year, according to a fact sheet provided by county Communications. They will process calls for fire, emergency medical services and the sheriffs office. Calls also will be transferred to police departments in Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs. The space has room for 63 personnel, including two 9-1-1 supervisors, 27 9-1-1 telecommunicators, eight fire-EMS dispatchers, two PCSO supervisors, seven PCSO dispatchers, three switchboard teletype, two traffic control positions (for use during an emergency), two Sunstar supervisors and 10 Sunstar dispatchers. The new 9-1-1 center became operational July 23. There were some bumps along the way, no doubt about it, but when push came to shove and switches were flipped that Wednesday morning, it was absolutely seamless, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. Gualtieri credited the success to teamwork. Its a credit to them and their hard work that we now have really, really crossed a threshold and reached a milestone in Pinellas County to give better emergency communications delivered to its citizens, he said. There will be a cost savings, and well realize that costs savings as we move down the road, but the more important part of it is, is were delivering a better more efficient service to the citizens. The new facility also replaces the sheriffs Administration Building, which will be demolished in the near future. A parking lot with 566 spaces will take its place. This new modern state-of-the-art, technology-sound building replaces what was very antiquated, Gualtieri said. Eight units with almost 100 employees currently spread out throughout the county also will be moving into the new facility, which enhances operations and saves money. This wasnt a want, by any stretch of any imagination, Gualtieri said. This was an absolute need that was eight years in the making. SIGNS, from page 1Adevelopment and marketing staff to create a comprehensive look for the signage. Essentially were talking about it using the existing identity elements that we have now, which would be the existing logo, the signature color of blue and standardizing the font, but not going through the lengthy process of developing a new logo and a tagline, said Community Development Director Carol Stricklin. The commissioners were not, as Mayor Pat Gerard put it, in a big hurry for branding. I do think its a problem that we need to address. Certainly we need to replace sings and Id like to move toward similar signs or the same signs in each location, said Commissioner Woody Brown. However, he advised against taking on a big expense for the project, pointing out that many of the citys blue street signs had the outdated clock tower symbol on them. I wouldnt want to go through the expense of replacing all of those signs simply because weve come up with a new kind of standard of signs, Brown said, suggesting those signs be replaced as needed. He also asked for staff to consider adding logos from the community organizations within Largo to the gateway signs. I think those are really nice, and it adds a hometown feel, he said. Smith asked if there was a way to involve the community in the process. Staffopoulos said that the city would be doing some community outreach as it defines its districts, allowing for opportunities for each area to have input on a slightly different sign theme. The business sign programIn the same meeting, the commissioners voted 51 to approve the first reading of an ordinance that extends the deadline for businesses to convert pole signs to monument signs. Commissioner Curtis Holmes was the sole dissenting vote. Businesses will have two more years, tacked on top of the original 10-year amortization period, to comply with the citys new signs standards. By June 2019, businesses will have to convert any signs on a pole to shorter, monument-style signs of a specific square-footage. The change is a significant expense for businesses; some of the 49 signs that have changed have cost as much as $12,000. Commissioners debated how quickly annexed businesses with pole signs should be asked to convert after coming into the city. They agreed to amend the ordinance to give such businesses 10 years after their annexation period to comply. The second reading of the ordinance is Tuesday, Aug. 19.Atheists open the meetingFor the first time, the city of Largo invited a representative from Atheists of Florida to offer an invocation to start the commission meeting Aug. 5. Joe Reinhardt thanked the commissioners for adopting to the ever-increasing diversity in our community today. We at Atheists of Florida have long advocated a moment of silence in lieu of an invocation, as an agreeable way to commence any meeting, he said. I invoke you to remember that human beings are the answer to human problems. And it is our responsibility to make the world and leave the world a better place.

According to the police report, officers responded to a disturbance call about 10 p.m. in the 9100 block of 54th Way North in Pinellas Park about a male subject grabbing and pushing a female. Police found the victim and the suspect in the 5500 block of 92nd Place North. As officers approached, the male fled into the rear yard of a private residence. The female told officers that the man had battered her and that she was pregnant with his child. Additional officers and two K-9 units arrived at the scene to assist. The K-9s began searching for the male. During the tracking, one K-9 team observed the man in a backyard on 91st Avenue North. The man refused orders to surrender and a police dog was sent to apprehend him. As the dog went after the suspect, the man fired a handgun at the dog. Neither the dog nor the handler was hit, police said. The suspect threw the firearm into another yard. Police later recovered the gun. Police said the suspect, Jason Michael Lopez, 30, suffered serious injuries due to resisting arrest and the efforts of the police dog in subduing him. The injuries include several dog bites. Lopez was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. He was released Friday morning and booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 8:12 a.m. Lopez was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant female; carrying a concealed firearm; aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer; resisting arrest with violence; and attempted injury of police dog. Lopez has an extensive criminal record including time served in a Florida prison.Man charged with having sex with a minorMADEIRA BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a 37-year-old Madeira Beach man for reportedly having sex with a 17-year-old female. The victims parents contacted the Sheriffs Office Aug. 3 after the teen failed to return home. The 17-year-old told her parents she was going out with friends she met on the beach. Deputies located the girl at the home of Justin Gregorits. According to the sheriffs report, the victim alleged that Gregorits forced her to have sex with him. Gregorits reportedly admitted to detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit that he did have a sexual encounter with the teen. Detectives said the incident occurred sometime between 1 and 3 a.m. Aug. 3. Gregorits was charged with sexual battery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Detectives believe there may be other victims. The suspect also goes by the name of Gene. Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Bonasoro at 582-6200.Sheriffs Office hiring detention deputiesThe Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is now accepting applications for certified detention deputies.

The mother was arrested July 31. According to investigators, between July 22 and July 27, inmate Janelle Albertson, 27, conspired with her mother, Mary Ann Albertson, 53, both of Clearwater to introduce various prescription pills into the Pinellas County Jail. Deputies assigned to the Detention Investigations Unit began to investigate the case after detention deputies received a tip. The investigation revealed that the women devised a plan in which Mary Ann Albertson would deliver and hide various prescription pills in a public restroom at the jail. An inmate worker would then retrieve the pills from the restroom and deliver them to Janelle in her housing unit. The sheriffs report includes no additional information about the inmate worker. Detectives learned that Janelle Albertson was selling or trading each pill for approximately $50 worth of items, including commissary products, phone cards and a pair of Nike shoes. Deputies say the pills also were used for personal consumption. Deputies said pill deliveries to the jail occurred on at least two occasions between July 22 and July 27. On July 31, investigators discovered various pills, including morphine, cyclobenzaprine, Xanax, Soma and Dilaudid concealed in one of the public restrooms. Deputies arrested Mary Ann Albertson July 31 at her Clearwater home for conspiracy to introduce contraband to a county detention facility and introduction of contraband into a county facility. She was subsequently transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bond was set at $10,000. Janelle Albertson was charged with conspiracy to introduce contraband to a county detention facility and introduction of contraband into a county facility. Janelle was already in jail after being arrested June 23 for possession of alprazolam, marijuana and morphine, as well as a Janelle Albertson Mary Ann Albertson Jason Michael Lopez Justin Gregorits

Debbie Hunt, director of Transportation Development for Florida Department of Transportation, updated Pinellas County Commissioners during a July 29 work session about ongoing plans for construction of the Gateway Express project. When complete, the expressway will provide a direct connection from I-275 to U.S. 19 and from I-275 to the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and the Bayside Bridge. Hunt described it as a catalyst project for the future of the region. It takes all the signals out of the commute, she said. She said the saving in travel time was huge. Gov. Rick Scott announced in February that FDOT would provide $131 million of the Gateway Express project. When complete, motorists will be able to make the new connections using an elevated tolled expressway. Thanks to the extra state money, the Gateway Express will open 20 years earlier than originally planned. Hunt said charging a toll on the expressway would allow the state to fund construction without using bonds. Toll revenue will pay for operation and maintenance of the road. Hunt estimates that the toll will be 75 cents at least in the beginning. She added that toll-free options would still be available. The Gateway Express will improve mobility in the region and help with congestion, Hunt said. It also will tie into other projects in the area. FDOT is working with county staff and well as Noah Lagos, director of the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport, and those working on the Greenlight Pinellas plan. PSTA also wants to build a maintenance facility in the Gateway area and potentially a train station. The Gateway Express will provide better access to the airport and require moving the traffic signal. The airport will still have two access points, Hunt said. FDOT and airport officials are currently working on plans to accommodate changes needed to the ponds and potential runway changes. FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is very involved to make sure there are no conflicts, Hunt said. We hope to get FAA response this week. The project could require intermittent closures of the main runway for up to six weeks. Hunt was quick to point out that the runway would not be closed for six weeks. Overall, it would be a total of six weeks, not six weeks at one time, she said. She said a secondary runway would be available. Lagos disputed that the main runway would be closed during construction. There is no closure of the main runway during this project, he said. He said the airport had agreed to temporary closures to the secondary runway and nighttime closures totaling up to six weeks in time. He said one of the airports runways, 927, was scheduled to be closed in 2019, because the FAA no longer wants to pay for its maintenance and the airport cant afford it. To make this project work, we must close 927, he said. He said it was FDOTs responsibility to coordinate with the FAA on the proposed alignment of the roadway and airspace. He said FAA would offer an opinion that there no hazards, there are possible hazards or there are hazards. We must wait for FAAs opinion, he said. He said the roadway project also could affect plans for a future runway expansion. Were still working on issues, Lagos said. Issues include the ponds, runways and parking. He said the history of the airports acquisition, which was part of a Surplus Property Act, also must be considered. There are strings attached, he said. Another concern is stormwater pipes under the road at 118th Avenue. Discussions include having the contractor reline all those pipes as part of the project. David Scott, director of the department of environment and infrastructure, said his staff was looking to see what other utilities infrastructure might be in the area. We dont want to have to dig up that area in the future, he said. Funding includes federal, state and Penny for Pinellas funds. Construction on the project, estimated to cost about $454 million, is scheduled to start in early 2017. Officials estimate that construction will take five years. Public hearings on the project are expected to begin in 2015. Penny for Pinellas will fund about $60 million of the project. Hunt said the project would help with traffic congestion, but it wouldnt solve the problem. Even with planned improvements and light rail, congestion will shift and balance, she said. It will take all the improvements to make traffic flow. This is part of a multi-modal system, Commissioner Ken Welch said. He said working together all the projects would help with congestion. This is a great project, he added. Were working very hard together, Scott said. Everything is beginning to come together well.Photo courtesy of FDOTWhen the Gateway project is complete, the expressway will provide a direct connection from I-275 to U.S. 19 and from I-275 to the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and the Bayside Bridge.

This goal is driven with safety as the key component. In a heartbeat, a fall can occur that may or may not result in broken bones but for an elderly person it can be a setback that can be life changing as far as them being able to maintain living in their homes. The effect of falls can be devastating both physically and financially. Medications are often the culprit for falls. It is a good practice to ask your doctor about the side effects of each drug you are taking so you are aware of what to expect and be sure to report them to him/her. Also share this information with your family and caregiver. Certain drugs can cause the blood pressure to lower which when getting up out of a chair or bed too quickly may cause dizziness or fainting. Try to get up slowly, especially in the middle of the night, sit on the edge of the bed a moment and then rise slowly to get your bearings. Walkers, canes and other tools of assistance are needed in the prevention of falls. Floppy slippers and shoes with slick soles can be a hazard. Often older adults tend to shuffle more than pick up their feet which makes tripping a real possibility especially on uneven pavement. It is very common for our seniors to attempt to do tasks that they have done their entire life when these very tasks now put them at risk for falling. For example, just one step up on a stool or ladder is extremely dangerous for older adults, who do not have the strength and balance of previous years. Encourage your loved ones to please ask a family member or caregiver to change a light bulb or reach items in cabinets that are too high. Electrical cords running across walkways, clutter or too many throw rugs are an accident waiting to happen. Railings on stairs, grab bars in the bathroom and adequate light are all easy fixes for prevention. It takes our eyes a while to adjust between darkness and light, therefore, adequate lighting is a must. Upon sign up for services with Comfort Keepers, a home environment assessment is done to offer the families ideas of how to take precautions against their loved one falling. This is a thorough checklist of potential conditions and/or methods to assist in prevention of injuries due to falls. Living well encompasses many aspects that in-home care can enhance. These aspects include mental, physical, nutritional and Safety considerations. We offer technology solutions, such as a Personal Emergency Response System, a fall detector, and a medication management system, all designed to increase safety.

PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority announced that the agency is on track to save Pinellas taxpayers nearly $3 million this year, according to financial projections released Aug. 1. Thanks to sound financial management and savings from overtime reductions and personnel vacancies, insurance savings and fuel cost savings, PSTA projects its total Fiscal Year 2014 expenses will come in more than $3 million under budget. When adjusted for projected revenue, the net savings to taxpayers will be just over $2.6 million. Delivering world-class transit service while delivering savings to our taxpayers is what we strive to do, as responsible stewards of the publics money, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. As one of Americas lowest-cost and most efficient public transit agencies, we are always looking for ways to do more with less. Those efforts are really bearing fruit this year with almost $3 million saved across the board. The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority is the public transit provider for Pinellas County, providing more than 14.4 million rides per year. PSTA operates nearly 40 bus and trolley routes with a fleet of 203 vehicles. More information is available at www.PSTA.net.U.S. 19 work causes detoursCLEARWATER Portions of the U.S. 19 and Belleair Road intersection are closed to traffic until Aug. 25 to allow for the construction of concrete beams for a new bridge.

Photo by TERRE PORTERWater restrictions are less stringent as of Aug. 1, but residents are still limited to a twice-a-week schedule for irrigating lawns.

Club Redington gets a facelift By BOB McCLUREREDINGTON SHORES They say change is good and for the 56 homeowners at Club Redington, a 15-story condominium at 17408 Gulf Blvd., that will soon be the case. Homeowners recently agreed to a special assessment that will fund a $150,000 exterior makeover that will give the 42-year-old building a brighter, more colorful look. Dan Bonivich, president of the Club Redington home owners association, said the project involves removing a layer of green aventurine rock and replacing it with stucco, which will be covered by a colorful green paint specially mixed for the project. The purpose of the work is not due to any particular problem, but instead to create a more refreshing, distinctive look without changing the appearance of the building too dramatically. It was a challenge because we wanted to maintain the old look of the building while updating and making it more vibrant, said Bonivich. Were trying to update the building without changing the character. The project, which started in the last couple of weeks, is expected to last two to three months. This paint job will last seven to 10 years, said Daniel Munyan, general manager of Munyan Painting and Restoration, which is performing the work. Its mainly aesthetic and will help the building maintain the waterproof aspect. Bonivich said the main challenge of the project is the design of the building and the rigging necessary for workers to scale the four sides. The rocks have to be individually plucked from the wall panels. People (homeowners) are just incredibly proud of this building, Bonivich said. Our goal is to keep it as a first-class building. The building, which is also in the process of getting new elevators, features four units per floor, all with a corner view in each unit. About 60 percent of the homeowners are seasonal and the remainder lives there year-round. Photo by BOB McCLUREAndrea and Dan Bonivich have owned their 15thfloor home at Club Redington for four years.

I have several friends my age who have kids going to college this year. How can this be? I remember going to college like it was yesterday, even though it was 25 years ago. I have to tell you a funny story about my first experience the summer before heading off to college. I got a call from a girl named Darlene, who was a senior at the college I was planning on attending. She called me out of the blue because she had seen my name in the paper, and read that I was going to Troy University in Alabama. While on the phone, she told me Troy had a lot of Greeks on campus. Being nave and not having parents involved in the college Greek life, I thought she was talking about the nationality, thinking of how Tarpon Springs has the highest percentage of Greek-Americans of any city. I didnt know that she was talking about sorority and fraternity life until I got off the phone and told my dad there were a lot of Greeks in Troy. Anyway, her phone call sparked my interest in what the Greek life was all about. I decided to go through rush, which is what students do the week before classes start to find out about the different sororities on campus. I ended up pledging the Chi Omega sorority. It was a wonderful experience and one I would never trade. The sorority was my home away from home. You see, Troy was about an eight-hour car ride, and I didnt have a car at college, so I would usually stay at school on the weekends. It was also a smaller school. It didnt have a huge student population. Being in a sorority gave me instant friends and helped make being away from family a little easier. The sorority also was like a family unit. The older girls watched out for us, made sure we studied and had good grades and helped us be women of good character. These girls in the sorority became sisters and to this day are still a part of my life. Darlene, who called me, is one of my close friends and a sorority sister. Recently, some of my sorority sisters planned a reunion in Atlanta. I was overjoyed to see 65 of my sisters from Troy for the weekend. It was like being back at college. Some of the women I havent seen since college. Still, we were able to reconnect so easily. There is a special bond that is there no matter how many years go by. I am hoping my own girls are Chi Os too one day, but I know sorority life may not be for everyone. I think that there are a lot of factors that go into pledging a sorority. Some sororities may be good at one campus and not so much at another. When my girls go to college, I hope they are open-minded and if they do decide to join a sorority, I want them to choose the one that fits them best as a person. If they decide not to pledge a sorority, thats OK too. One thing I do know is that my girls wont think going Greek is changing your nationality.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563You know him ... you know how he made a living. Those famous paraphrased words were spoken by Quint, the shark hunter in the popular 1975 movie, Jaws. For those who may have been comatose all these years, Jaws is the story about a great white shark that made munchies out of swimmers in the fictitious beach town of Amity. And now, if recent news reports are accurate, Pinellas County beach towns may soon become the stomping ... or swimming grounds ... for great whites with appetites for snowbirds, bikini-clad locals and snorkelers who unintentionally present themselves as smorgasbords. Nearly a half dozen Carcharodon carcharias, the official moniker of the great white shark, have been hooked in Florida waters since January. The latest catch occurred recently off Fort Lauderdale Beach. The 13-footer weighed more than 500 pounds. Then there was the 16-foot, 3,500-pound monster that was spotted off Jacksonville Beach, causing authorities to order swimmers out of the water. Floridas east coast is far enough away not to cause much trepidation in Pinellas County. But think about the great white of undetermined weight and size that was hooked last March off Treasure Island! Did that get your attention? The most infamous local shark attack transpired in August 2000 when Thaddeus Kubinski, 69, was killed by a bull shark while swimming in about five feet of water in Boca Ciega Bay on the Intracoastal Waterway. Kubinskis St. Pete Beach assault was Floridas 19th deadly shark attack since 1882. Contemporary sightings of the terrifying creatures number into the dozens. A great white recently was spotted swimming off Anna Marie Island. More reports of great whites, bulls and tigers ... three of the most aggressive squalliest ... have spiraled upward. Scientists theorize that Florida waters are cooling down. Thats good news for sharks that are wandering here from northern waters. The Florida Museum of Natural History maintains an international shark attack file. Scientists argue that more people are killed each year by insect stings and snake bites than by shark attacks. Tell that to Quint, Chrissie Watkins or Alex Kintner who were devoured by the 25-footer in Jaws. Real sharks really dont find human flesh very enticing. Researchers believe that their nibbling of human body parts is more of a taste test than anything else. Only about 12 of the approximately 300 breeds of sharks attack humans. The fish evolved millions of years before people showed up on our planet. That could be why sharks are programmed to dine on smaller fish and marine mammals. Anyone can track the whereabouts of tagged great whites and other shark species by visiting www.ocearch.org. Operated by OSEARCH, this nonprofit group scrutinizes the travel patterns of the ocean predators they tag. The toothy brutes are baptized with endearing names like Lydia, Mary Lee, Michelle and Gina. One Australian Great white was named Joan of Shark by someone with a sense of humor. Katherine is a shark of interest that has been lurking in Florida waters as of late. With her own Twitter account, Shark_Katherine, one of her recent tweets read, We should do a live feed. Katherine is more than 14 feet long, weighs 2,300 pounds and has journeyed hundreds of miles since being tagged last August off Cape Cod, Mass. She has been swimming down the U.S. east coast and visited St. Augustine, Vero Beach and Miami. Her latest track was off Key West. It is expected that she eventually will swim up the west coast of Florida, and that includes Pinellas County, and then further out into the Gulf. And she will grow in both length and weight. Scientists theorize that rogue sharks simply want to be left alone to swim and eat sea snacks. But there have been too many recorded attacks upon humans in shallow water to ignore. The latest Florida attack occurred on July 22 when Aadyn Crick, an 8-year-old Indiana boy, was attacked in the shallow waters near Melbourne. Two months before, on May 14, Mihaela Cosa was wading in thighdeep water near Jacksonville when a shark caused enough damage to require 24 stitches. A day later a woman was attacked while surfboarding near Miami. The web site sharkattacksurvivors.com recorded a fair number of incidents this year, including near New Smyrna Beach and Cocoa Beach. Australia is home to the greatest of the great whites. Six people have died during the past two years, including Christine Armstrong, 60, who was brutally attacked off Tathra. Only parts of a man were discovered off Perth. Despite an uptick in worldwide shark attacks, scientists note that 30to 70-million sharks are slaughtered annually for food, fins and accidentally by fishing nets. Humans actually pose more of a threat to sharks, rays and skates than the other way around. Think about that the next time a dorsal fin is circling you. Maybe sharks are just getting even for the callous deaths of their relatives.Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor.

To put it more curtly, your perception is shortsighted to say the least. I am an Irish Catholic and so was my family. I have roots in Ireland. Our priests were humble and good back in Ireland. The church cared for the family and was there with food when our family was going through hard times. Have you ever heard of Catholic Relief Services? Were you aware of the fact that that is one of the only nonprofit organizations where 97 percent of the donations actually go to the needy and poor? Do you know that there are hospitals and churches that now feed and clothe the poor because the government is not helping the poor indigent. Catholicism is more than a handful of priests who dont know what it means to be a priest. There are 1.2 billion Catholics in the world. Every single day the Catholic church feeds, houses and clothes more people, takes care of more sick and visits more prisoners, educates more people than any other institution on the face of the earth. So you better get your facts straight when you bash the Catholics, sir. You are reading this from an Irish Catholic who is proud of her faith! Victoria OHara Tarpon SpringsRazzano had her Hanes in a knotEditor: Besides an obvious gay agenda, Miss Razzano tries to display her art as a writer. Besides being put out by who, may be a gay gentleman, a sweaty man, she seems to hold women with children, heterosexual women at least at some point, in dim view also. A shriveled elderly woman and a Joe Six-pack type are just fillers because she feels the need to fill paper. Seven paragraphs to what end? I guess all AMSCOTS are created equal and all peoples, except gays, are pretty dull and sweaty. Tiffy just had her Hanes in a knot Im guessing. Seems to happen a lot in the gay community. Half a page later she gets to her rant. I didnt find much news but did find she needs six more legal protections a few extra legal protections, just six in total. I assume the glamorous Donna Reed types; vegan masters and caring cat lovers do not have a lot of time for processes in the sunshine state. She patiently passed up two other opportunities, to come here and lobby. If I were Julie, her other, Id dump that snob who serves champagne and flowers. Champagne and flowers, a meal doth not make. Is her editor position a paid appointment? Raymond Kruse Dunedin Do you ever get to wondering about stuff? Such as: PUTTING A PERSON ON MARS. Why do we want to do that? How can the USA or any nation justify the enormous expense and risk of sending one or more astronauts to Mars and then bringing them home? And if this feat is achieved, what lasting good will come of it, not just for the scientists, but for the ordinary working stiffs who have helped pay for it? Scientists quickly remind the stay-at-home advocates about the many beneficial discoveries made during the run-up to our moon landings. But the ready-made response to that argument is this: is it likely that similar advances would come from a Mars adventure? Does the average distance to Mars (140 million miles) guarantee that wed be that much wiser than we were after soaring only 240,000 miles to the moon? Then theres the moss-covered argument that goes Why do people want to climb Mt. Everest? Because its there. That answer isnt good enough for the Mars trip. Mt. Everest is peanuts in comparison. And once we get to Mars, you can bet your behind that going to Venus or Uranus will be the next adventure on the scientists bucket list. The universe is infinite in its size, complexity and unanswered questions, but Earth and its inhabitants have constraints that must be heeded. CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. We were able to put men on the moon, but we still havent learned how to legally execute a condemned man without screwing up the process, at least part of the time. The July 23 horror show in Arizona featured incompetent and unidentified hirelings administering unnamed drugs for 90 minutes before Joseph Rudolph Wood stopped gasping and gave up the ghost. This travesty triggered morbid suggestions that further drug-related executions be performed by a qualified veterinarian, or by any wellrounded heroin or meth addict who could probably tell exactly how much of a drug overdose is needed to dispatch an adult. The agonizing irony of all this is that capital punishment simply doesnt work, except to satisfy the compulsion for vengeance that lies within most of us. The risk of being executed seldom deters persons intent on committing a capital crime. The cost of maintaining Death Rows is enormous. The record shows that from time to time innocent persons are mistakenly executed, leaving society no option except to say Oops! Sorry about that. What a testimonial to our justice system. HOW TO SETTLE THE ISRAELI-HAMAS DISPUTE AND THE UNDOCUMENTED HISPANIC CHILDREN PROBLEM AT THE SAME TIME. My suggestion: swap them. Both of these controversies are tough ones. The Israelis and the Palestinians have hated each others guts for 6,000 years, and today their leaders do not show any signs of changing their attitudes. Both sides blame the other guy. In the U.S. Congress, liberals and conservatives seem deadlocked about what to do about the thousands of Hispanic children who are illegally crossing our southwestern border. Most liberals say, Let them stay; well find a way. Conservatives say, Sorry, kids. Aint no more room at the inn. I say this: Lets bring Israeli boss Netanyahu and the Hamas leaders to Arizona and force them to solve the illegal immigrant problem. At the same time, send Congressional leaders to Israel and assign them the task of bringing peace to that region. Both delegations should be delighted to be given a fresh set of headaches, and therefore should be able to come up with new ideas. If this idea doesnt work, lets turn both controversies over to Dr. Phil. He is an expert at dealing with immature, selfish, narrowminded, hateful human beings (many of them teen-aged junkies). His ultimate solution would be to send the Israelis, Palestinians and Congressional leaders to rehab centers in Idaho for a few weeks. It might not work, but it surely wouldnt make things any worse than they are. FEMALE WAR CORRESPONDENTS. I may be mistaken, but it seems to me that most of todays TV reporters covering the hot spots in Israel, Gaza, Ukraine and other war zones are women. Many of them appear to be young, intense, competent and fully prepared to risk injury or death in order to get the story. Is this an indicator that the glass ceiling for women journalists is cracking? Id like to think so.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Marijuana prohibition doesnt workThe New York Times has seen the light. On Sunday, the paper editorialized in favor of an end to the federal ban on marijuana. According to Tony Newman of the Drug Policy Alliance, The Gray Lady has become the first major national newspaper to support legalizing marijuana. The Times did not celebrate marijuana use; it simply addressed the downside of prohibition 658,000 arrests for marijuana possession in 2012, with a disproportionate representation of young black men. The editorial also laid out a rational view of marijuana. While research suggests that marijuana can have adverse affects on adolescent brains hence the papers support for a ban on sales to those under 21 its not as hazardous to health as alcohol and tobacco. The paper also made this common sense but rare assertion: Moderate use of marijuana does not appear to pose a risk for otherwise healthy adults. My guess is the editorial board wanted to appear relevant instead of late to the party. In 2012, Colorado and Washington voters approved ballot measures to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Last year, a Gallup poll found that 58 percent of respondents support legalization. I think the New York Times wanted to speak out before voters in Oregon, and perhaps Alaska, pass similar legalization laws in November. Editorial board member David Firestone urged President Obama to order Attorney General Eric Holder to begin a study to remove marijuana from the federal list of controlled drugs. Likewise, Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colorado, has introduced the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act. While few observers expect the bill to pass, the Times editorial just might prompt a few lawmakers to rethink what has been knee-jerk opposition to change. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-California, signed on as a co-sponsor of the bill last year and hes a former prosecutor. I believe that citizens in states across the country should be empowered to make their own decisions as to how to treat marijuana, Swalwell said in a statement. Apparently, it took marijuana to get Democrats to find a policy area that states should decide. Asked on CNN about legalizing marijuana, Hillary Rodham Clinton lauded states as laboratories of democracy. When Bill Clinton ran for president in 1992, he said he experimented with marijuana but didnt inhale. Now states are doing the experimenting. Except California. In 2010, 54 percent of state voters rejected Proposition 19, which would have legalized recreational marijuana. The Drug Policy Alliance is working on a measure for the 2016 ballot that addresses the concerns of Prop. 19 critics and builds on lessons learned in Colorado and Washington. Gov. Jerry Brown opposed Prop. 19, and hes not likely to support any new measure. In March he told NBCs Meet the Press, How many people can get stoned and still have a great state or a great nation? Its an odd stance for a governor who reduced the state prison population from around 150,000 in 2010 to 117,500 inmates. Do Californians really want police enforcing marijuana laws when other offenders pose a bigger threat to public safety? Alas, Browns GOP challenger, Neel Kashkari, also opposes legalization. I asked Swalwell if he thought legalization would increase use. He answered, Honestly, no. Its not as though its hard to get marijuana in California, where medical marijuana is legal. Then again, it wasnt hard to find marijuana in my high school before medical marijuana. Prohibition doesnt work.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.

Professional 010214 Joes Creek park project wins awardLEALMAN An empty lot in Lealman, once covered with weeds and debris, is now the pride of the neighborhood thanks to an effort led by the Lealman Community Association. The citizens association identified a need to improve the land, resulting in the Joes Creek Greenway Park, a multi-year project completed in November 2013. The park project involved staff from Pinellas County Health and Community Services, Parks and Conservation Resources and the Department of Environment and Infrastructure as well as collaboration between many federal, state and local agencies and volunteer groups. In July, the National Association of Counties recognized the park project with a 2014 Achievement Award in the Parks and Recreation category. The 38-acre park includes a 1-mile paved trail, pedestrian bridges over Joes Creek, observation platforms with extensive wildlife viewing opportunities, restrooms, mini picnic shelters and educational signage. The park attracts about 75,000 visitors per year. The transformation to the Joes Creek area is impressive, said Pinellas County Commissioner Charlie Justice. The wildlife present is not what one would immediately expect in our dense urban county. Lealman, and Pinellas County as a whole, is made better by restoration efforts like the one at Joes Creek. The park project also was recognized in March with a second place award in the Natural Resource/Environment category of the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Councils 22nd Annual Future of the Region Awards. The outcomes of this project are evidence that we can make a positive impact on our environment through restoration projects, said Justice. This project, and the recognition it has received, continues to highlight the commitment we have made to strong environmental stewardship in Pinellas County.

A wide variety of events also are held at the village throughout the year. To maintain all of this and keep things running smoothly, the village has come to rely heavily on volunteers. Three long-time volunteers have excelled in their efforts to assist the village and have become lead volunteers and good friends. Mary Chernesky was a director of the University of Florida Cooperative Extension in Hillsborough County before retiring. Chernesky says she always liked antiques and was looking for something to do when she first came to the village and talked to volunteer coordinator Paige Noel. Noel told her they really needed someone to help out with their gardens. After seven years her role at the village has expanded greatly beyond the gardens. A Madeira Beach resident, Chernesky cochairs the annual County Jubilee Flea Market. Just recently she chaired the cleaning and packing up of the Turner Bungalow, a new historic house circa 1915 moved to the village from Clearwater. She calls the house a real prize and a neat addition once its restoration work is completed. Chernesky is also a member of the Pinellas County Historical Society, serving as recording secretary and hospitality chairperson. Next door, at Pinellas County Extension, she is a master gardener. Deborah Carter of Clearwater is also a lead volunteer. A graduate in history at Florida State University, she worked for the Pinellas County school system for a number of years. Carter, along with fellow lead volunteer Connie Allen and others, is heavily involved in the Trees and Traditions program, part of the villages annual old fashioned Christmas celebration. Like Chernesky, Carter is also a member of the Historical Society. She is involved with the village gardens and co-chairs the annual flea market. Carter is very passionate and proud of the flea market and notes that all of the money raised goes back to the village assisting many restoration projects. The third lead volunteer, Connie Allen, has a fondness for history. From Indian Rocks Beach, she has been a regular volunteer since 2006. In addition to being a Historical Society member, she too cochairs the annual flea market. Like Chernesky and Carter, Allen also is involved with the village in other ways. In addition to being a docent along with her husband, she is also part of the conservation committee. This involves assisting in putting together the various exhibits the committee displays throughout the year. Like Chernesky and Carter, Allen also enjoys the fun and friendship that comes with being a volunteer at Heritage Village. All three enjoy not only working with each other and the other volunteers but also the opportunity of meeting the many people who visit Heritage Village. Chernesky believes that, volunteering has benefits. She believes volunteers tend to be healthier into their old age, are more involved and do not think of themselves so much but think of others. Each of these lead volunteers encourages others to discover the interesting and fun things that volunteering can bring, in addition to being able to help the community. Noel believes the trio is a great asset to the village. She has always been a firm believer in volunteers, noting they are the heart of Heritage Village and what keeps history alive and a fun place to volunteer. She encourages all who may be thinking of volunteering to come out to the village and see for themselves the many varied and different opportunities that exist. Heritage Village is located at 11909 125th St. N. in Largo. This living history museum brings more than 150 years of local history to life. Visitors can visit 28 authentic buildings and structures, and experience historical Pinellas County through hands-on exploration. Heritage Village has WI-FI availability. Heritage Village is open Wednesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. It is closed all Pinellas County holidays. For more information about Heritage Village visit www.pinellascounty.org/heritage, or call 582-2123. This article was provided by Pinellas County Communications.

Helping hands Helping handsOutstanding volunteers Summer bait stocks attracting mackerel, troutSpanish mackerel fishing is only getting better with each passing week. Hard-bottom areas within a mile of shore are holding good numbers of fish. Try Sand Key, Blind Pass and Redington. They should all be holding Spanish mackerel as well as the occasional cobia. Also, the artificial reefs from 3 to 10 miles out are also good places to target. On a recent snapper trip to one of the near-shore reefs we had the snapper and the mackerel chummed up behind the boat. Although only a few baits made it past the mackerel to the snapper it was still really good fishing. Upon returning from our trip offshore we decided to try for some trout along a deep grass flat just inside the pass. The tide was moving in quickly and packs of terns were dipping on schools of small fry bait. It definitely looked promising. After tossing out a couple of handfuls of frisky chummers it didnt take long for the water to begin to boil. There were trout anywhere from 12 inches up to 18 inches popping up all around the boat. As we caught trout after trout all the while continuing to chum to keep the bites coming, we managed to lure in a school of Spanish mackerel ranging in size from 18 to 24 inches, definitely our best mackerel of the day. Catching bait has been good lately. Small pilchards have been staged up right inside the swash channel all along the beach. These baits are anywhere from an inch and a half up to two and half inches long so I would definitely recommend a quarter inch mesh cast net. It also is a good idea to lighten up your hook so that your bait swims naturally. A size-1 gold Aberdeen hook has been working great with the small baits and the slightly longer shank than a traditional live bait hook will help to prevent cut-offs from the Spanish mackerel.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

As with all lifes lessons, it is acquired only through years of patient selfdiscipline. The poet Longfellow gave a young friend this advice: Each day see some good picture, in nature if possible or on canvas; hear a page of the best music, or read a great poem. You will always find a free half-hour for one or the other, and at the end of the year your mind will shine with such an accumulation of jewels as will astonish even yourself. With that, daily take into your heart some cheering thought from Gods Word. Listen to a heavenly song of hope and joy. Let your mind dwell on some beautiful vision of divine love. Soon your very being will become a fountain of light and joy, and gladness will become more and more the dominant mood of your life.Excerpts from Secret of Gladness J.R. Miller Submitted by Joy Cometh in the Morning Dedicated to Inspiration & Enlightenment Through the Written Word 080714 Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren) gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassans passion for French haute cuisine and for Madame Mallorys enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) combine with his mysteriously-delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore. At first Madame Mallorys culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassans gift as a chef and takes him under her wing. The Hundred-Foot Journey abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one young mans drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.Step Up All InGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Ryan Guzman, Briana Evigan, Stephen twitch Boss, Misha Gabriel, Izabella Miko, Alyson Stoner and Adam Sevani Director: Trish Sie Rated: PG-13 One of the most popular dance franchises in film history takes competition to astonishing new heights in Step Up All In.

But when the new dance crew he forms with the beautiful and headstrong Andie West (Briana Evigan) reaches the final rounds of a high-stakes reality TV competition in glittering Las Vegas, he has a shot at finally making his dreams come true if he can set aside old loyalties and long-time rivalries and just do what he loves most: dance. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.What IfGenre: Comedy and romance Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Rafe Spall, Megan Park, Mackenzie Davis and Oona Chaplin Director: Michael Dowse Rated: PG-13 Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) is a medical school dropout whos been repeatedly burned by bad relationships.

Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu. Yes, this is going to be yet another review singing the praises of Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy. To summarize: Its an awesome movie. Go see it. Of course, things could have gone quite differently. Instead of raking in at least $94 million domestically and around $160 million internationally during its opening weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy could have fallen short of expectations. It could have been the first genuine dud from the blockbuster factory that Marvel Studios has become in recent years. It could have been a flop. Honestly, up until the marketing hype for this film started, only devoted comic book fans knew of the existence of this troupe of oddball characters. The name Guardians of the Galaxy technically dates back to Marvel Superheroes, Issue 18, 1969 but that team isnt the one featured in the new film. The characters audiences are cheering for in Guardians of the Galaxy come from a more recent incarnation of the space-faring superhero team that debuted, in comic book form, in 2008. All of Marvel Studios prior successes have been based upon easily identifiable characters, beginning with Iron Man and including Hulk, Thor and Captain America. Marvels The Avengers assembled all of these characters and added a few more to the Marvel Cinematic Universe roster. One doesnt have to have a secret stash of Silver Age comic books in a spare room to recognize these names. They have become part of American pop culture. The films didnt have to work that hard familiarizing audiences with the basic concepts behind the individual storylines. Guardians of the Galaxy has no familiar faces. It does, however, have a talking raccoon and a tree-creature named Groot. This was gamble for Marvel Studios. Guess what? It paid off. James Gunn deserves a lot of the credit for this films success. Gunn directs Guardians of the Galaxy and co-wrote the screenplay. At its core, its a simple story that fits faithfully into the Big Picture: Every installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date has been intertwined in a nebulous story arc that progresses steadily toward some indeterminate pinnacle. As a boy, Peter Quill who has just watched his mother die in a hospital bed is taken aboard a starship filled with space pirates lead by Yondu. Some 26 years later, Quill operating as a loner has his own ship and his own moniker: Star-Lord. On the dead planet Morag, Quill filches a spherical, metallic artifact. The orb, it turns out, contains an object of inestimable power that can be used to wipe out entire planets. A nasty-piece-of-work named Ronan wants to acquire the orb for Thanos, and sends an assassin named Gamora to retrieve it. Gamora has her own agenda. When Quill tries to sell the orb to a broker on planet Xandar, Gamora as well as Rocket and Groot all try to gain possession of the orb. When the scuffle ends, they are all taken into custody by Nova Corps and thrown in prison. There, they meet an inmate named Drax and form a kind of ragtag alliance. At this point, Yondu who is also after the orb, because he wants to sell it has put a bounty on Quills head, and Ronan who wants the orb for purely malevolent reasons is intent on making Gamora pay for betraying him. What happens next? Without spoilers, heres a taste: cool spaceships trekking across cosmic vistas, thrilling skirmishes, irreverent humor, touching moments of disclosure, heartrending sacrifices, enchanting absurdity, slapstick, uncomplicated space opera bliss and one of the greatest showdown moments of cinematic history. Guardians of the Galaxy is ridiculously appealing because it pullsGuardians of the Galaxy delivers refreshing, uncomplicated space opera blissMovie review Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe together so many elements from pop culture. Here are a few examples: Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, is Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Malcolm Mal Reynolds all rolled into one. Sure, the character actually dates back before any of those other roles had been cast (Star-Lord first appeared in Marvel Preview, Issue 4, 1976), but Pratts performance clearly pays homage to these iconic figures. Hes a scoundrel with heart, a thief with a conscience and a wiseacre with an inflated ego who proves to be a natural leader. There may even be a bit of Snake Plissken in Quill. And perhaps a hint of Marty McFly. The music ties Quill to Earth and for many members of the audience evokes a simpler time. Songs like Blue Suedes Hooked on a Feeling, David Bowies Moonage Daydream, Elven Bishops Fooled Around and Fell in Love and Five Stairsteps O-o-h Child wouldnt seem to be appropriate choices for a space opera, but Quills cherished Walkman provides the connection and imbues the character with a degree of warm-heartedness that would have been difficult to establish through dialog or action. Lovable misfits are always compelling. The individuals who come together to form the Guardians of the Galaxy are outcasts in the tradition of a certain team of kids who went searching for treasure in the 1985 film The Goonies. Quill isnt the only one in this film conjuring up images of Han Solo. Solo had Chewbacca, a faithful sideman only he could understand. Rocket has Groot, a devoted partner with a very limited vocabulary yet, Rocket always seems to know what he means. Additional in-script pop culture references include nods to Ranger Rick, Kevin Bacon and Jackson Pollack and Alyssa Milano. Pratts capable contribution is matched by solid performances from an ensemble cast including Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, John C. Reilly as Corpsman Rhomann Dey, Glenn Close as Nova Prime Irani Rael and Michael Rooker as Yondu. Vin Diesel provides the voice and motion capture for Groot and Bradley Cooper voices Rocket. Lee Pace serves up an appropriately menacing Ronan the Accuser. Karen Gillan is the devious Nebula and Djimon Hounsou turns in a great supporting role as Korath. The key actors are able to make their characters relatable and Photo by JAMES DITTGER/SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENTBriana Evigan stars as Andie and Ryan Guzman as Sean in Step Up All In.compelling, no matter how alien they may seem and thats quite an accomplishment, since most moviegoers arent that familiar with source material. Guardians of the Galaxy is full of goofy jokes and incongruities, but the humor doesnt undercut the narrative. The snarky chatter and cheesy one-liners fit the characters. The action is intense, but not suffocating. The hero is an everyman-turned-leader by happenstance and his team is more than the sum of its parts. The story emanates a kind of exuberance that will have fans lining up for second and third showings and gobbling up merchandise like crazy. For those who said Guardians of the Galaxy was too obscure a property for cinematic treatment: It looks like Marvel Studios gets the last laugh. Speaking of last laughs, be sure to stick around for the post-credit scene for a surprise cameo. OPENING, from page 1B Photos courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOSAt left, Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy revolves around a space-faring team of misfits including, from left, Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). Above, with the cosmos as a backdrop, Quill reveals something about his past to Gamora. Below, Rocket is a genetically-engineered raccoon and a bounty hunter.

Johnny Winter, one of the best blues guitarists in the business, passed away in Zurich, Switzerland, a few days after performing at the Cahors Blues Festival in France. He was 70. What was originally slated as Rock n Blues Hippiefest to be headlined by Johnny Winter has been reworked. Audiences will now celebrate the life of Johnny Winter with a fitting tribute in his honor featuring his brother Edgar along with Vanilla Fudge, Peter Rivera (formerly of Rare Earth) and Savoy Browns Kim Simmonds. The Rock n Blues Hippiefest Tribute to Johnny Winter will make a stop in the Tampa Bay area on Saturday, Aug. 16, 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road. Tickets start at $45.75. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. My wife, Monique, and I are shocked at the suddenness of Johnnys passing, especially since I was so looking forward with such joy and anticipation to seeing him again and playing together, said Edgar Winter in a statement released shortly after the tragic news of Johnnys death. I know his body is departing this physical realm, but his presence, his music, and his spirit are undiminished, and alive as ever in my heart. Johnny has always been, is now, and will forever remain my greatest musical hero of all time. But more than all that, hes my brother in family, in music, in life and beyond. I will do my best to carry on in honor of his memory and the Winter name. The Rock n Blues Hippiefest will mark the third annual version of the tour with a show that will feature separate performances by all of the artists who will be performing their greatest hits interspersed by a selection of Johnny Winter songs. All of the artists appearing on this newly announced tribute are looking forward to sharing some of Johnny Winters memorable music with fans.Edgar Winter Edgar Winter, an undeniable fan favorite who has appeared on both prior Rock n Blues Fest tours, is a multi-instrumentalist, playing everything from keyboards and sax to percussion. His music encompasses many different genres including rock, blues, jazz and pop. Edgar first entered the national spotlight with his early recording of Tobacco Road, featured on his 1970 debut album, Entrance. He would soon form the band White Trash and release two hit albums: Edgar Winters White Trash (1971) and Roadwork (1972). Hot on the heels of the certified gold album, Roadwork, Edgar would put together an entirely new outfit called The Edgar Winter Group that would originally feature guitarist Ronnie Montrose. In 1973, the bands first effort, They Only Come Out at Night, would spawn the hit singles Free Ride and the monster, chart-topping Frankenstein. The album stayed on the charts for 80 consecutive weeks. The pivotal album would eventually reach double-platinum status, selling more than 2 million copies. recorded two Beatles songs along with a rendition of the R&B number Take Me For a Little While, which would be a Top 40 hit. From 1966 and 1969, the band churned out five studio albums. They disbanded in 1970 to follow different career paths. In 2005, the original members reconvened for a tour with Riders On The Storm (featuring Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek of The Doors) and Steppenwolf. A year later, they were inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame along with Billy Joel, Joan Jett and the producer of their debut album, George Shadow Morton. Vinny Martell said he is looking forward to hitting the road this summer. We thank all our fans for helping to make Vanilla Fudge a piece of music history, Martell said. Music has always been, and still is, the timeless language of peace and hope and unity in this turbulent world. Keep rockin with us in the 21st century and come out to this summers RocknBlues Fest.Peter RiveraAny connoisseur of s rock will certainly remember Rare Earth. The bands funky, good-time music is still played on classic rock stations across the country and their place in music history is firmly cemented. Peter Rivera is the original drummer and lead vocalist behind all of the hits. Rare Earth sold more than 25 million albums and had Top Ten hits with the songs Get Ready, I Just Want To Celebrate and (I Know) Im Losing You. Two other songs, Born to Wander and Hey Big Brother would enter Top 20 on the charts. The albums Get Ready (1969) and the two-record set, Rare Earth in Concert (1971), both achieved double platinum status. Rivera has been called the premier rock drummer/vocalist of the s and his vocals have been featured on countless radio and television commercials over the years. In addition, his voice has been heard in several movies and television shows including A Knights Tale, Three Kings, Arthur, Six Feet Under, Chicago Hope and Beverly Hills 90210. Im really looking forward to the Rock n Blues tour and cant wait to get started, said Rivera. I hope we can all rock it out.Kim Simmonds Considered one of the architects of British blues, Kim Simmonds began performing professionally in London in the mid 1960s after learning how to play guitar by listening to his brothers blues records as a teenager. As the leader and founder of the legendary blues rock band Savoy Brown, Simmonds has 49 album releases currently available and continues to tour all over the world with the band as well as a solo acoustic act. In 1967, Savoy Brown helped to propel the UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the United States, invigorating the style forever. In the process, Savoy Brown became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970s, with their vast influence stretching into modern rock. In 2011, the band celebrated its 45th anniversary by releasing a new CD titled Voodoo Moon. Once again, Im touring with the Rock n Blues Fest and, once again, Im excited to do so, said Simmonds. I am a fan of all the other artists on the bill so it will be a pleasure for me to participate. I thrive on the atmosphere, playing among my peers and I know the tour will bring out the best in me. With more than 20 albums and numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, Edgar has never been one to simply ride the wave of popular music stardom. His music has been featured in several major national television, radio and advertising campaigns. In addition, his music can be heard in no fewer than 15 film and television projects. I would like to thank all you fans who have followed us throughout all these years, Edgar said in a press release from the Albright Entertainment Group promoting the tour. We cant do it without you. We just want you to know how much it means to be doing what we most love, and see you out there rockin and having a good time.Vanilla FudgeThe current lineup of Vanilla Fudge features original members Mark Stein (vocals, organ), Vinny Martell (guitars, vocals) and Carmine Appice (drums, vocals). Vanilla Fudge dates back to 1966. The original band (with bassist Tim Bogert) would have a huge hit the following year with a revival of the Supremes classic, You Keep Me Hangin On. Featured on their debut album, the song displayed the key elements of their style and would be a hit on both sides of the Atlantic. The band gained a following with its psychedelic covers.

Call 813740-2446 or visit www.livenation.com. Nine Inch Nails is considered a pioneer in the industrial music movement and has been highly influential in the evolution of electronic music. Headed by Trent Reznor, the bands recordings which include the multi-Platinum Pretty Hate Machine (1989), Broken (1992) and The Downward Spiral (1994) have revolutionized detailed digital production. The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, released a remarkable series of singles, including the No. 1 Modern Rock radio hits The Hand That Feeds, Only, Every Day Is Exactly the Same and Survivalism, and received two Grammy awards. The bands most recent album, 2013s Hesitation Marks from Columbia Records, debuted at No. 1 on Billboards Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. Soundgarden is internationally recognized as one of the worlds most influential rock bands. With a laudable career and Grammywinning catalog, the Seattle fourpiece helped launch a transformation in rock music that inspired a generation. The band is supporting the reissue of its seminal album, Superunknown, via A&M Records/UME. A gargantuan No. 1 hit upon its release in 1994, the album earned the band two Grammy awards for the singles Black Hole Sun and Spoonman. Selling more than 9 million copies worldwide, the album was certified five times platinum by the RIAA in the United States, making it the bands most commercially successful album. Superunknown also helped to redefine alternative rock, leaving an indelible mark on the course of music history. Soundgarden also will be performing songs from their acclaimed catalogue, including songs from their additional six albums Screaming Life (1987), Ultramega OK (1988), Louder Than Love (1989), Badmotorfinger (1991), Down On The Upside (1996) and their most recent release, King Animal (2012). King Animal was met with widespread critical acclaim, debuting as the No. 1 Rock Album in the United States. The first two singles Been Away Too Long and By Crooked Steps reached No. 1 on both rock radio formats. The Dillinger Escape Plan, a mathcore band from New Jersey, will open.
