TORRESLARGO Virginia Jeffrey, 91, strolled out of the iPad class, held at Royal Palms in Largo Sept. 2, with a pleased expression on her face. I learned more today than I usually do, she said happily. The pronouncement is an impressive one, considering how much she has learned since she received her first mini iPad from her son for her 90th birthday last year. The class, taught by technology instructor Polly Bateman, is Jeffreys third. I never worked a computer or anything, said Jeffrey, who lives at the Royal Palms retirement community. I have learned because Polly has taught me. She is great. And its very interesting. Im fascinated with it. Jeffrey turned on the screen of her iPad and quickly tapped in her passcode. I do real well with it now. I send email and all that stuff. Ive got photos that I send to my grandchildren in California, she said. Its just been a pleasure. About 60 students attended the hour-and-a-half class on the settings and keyboard of the iPad, the first in a three-part series on the subject. Hopefully youll learn one or two things and then apply it. And then next week were going to go a little further, Bateman explained at the start of the class. You definitely cant iPad all in one quick class. In the next two classes, students will learn about photos and email and then the Web and apps. The series is part of Royal Palms Boomer University program, free classes open to its senior residents and baby boomers in the surrounding community. The initiative, started in January 2011, is part marketing, part service to its residents, brought about after Bateman attended aRoyal Palms hosts classes on the iPad, smartphones and social mediaPhotos by JULIANA A.

Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved user fees for fiscal year 2015 on Aug. 19, including new and increased fees for Animal Services expected to generate as much as $34,200. A new fee to help Animal Services recoup the cost of medical treatment on pets reclaimed by their owner will bring in $20,000 of the $34,200. It will cost pet owners $50 to reclaim a pet that received limited veterinary care while at Animal Services, $100 for extensive care and $150 for emergency care. Animal Services expects to bring in $14,200 by raising the guard dog registration fee from $75 to $100. Fee increases for Sunstar Ambulance transports and services will bring in an estimated $281,950. Cost of an ambulance ride with advanced life support will go up from $578 to $590 and from $687 to $701 for advance life support 2. Critical care transport will increase from $987 to $1,008 and mental health transport from $129 to $132. The charge per mile is going up 28 cents. Waiting time and standby charges also will increase. In addition, Sunstar is charging more for its membership program, effective Jan. 1, 2015. A family plan is increasing from $91.05 to $92.98, and a single plan will cost $59.77 compared to the current price of $58.53. New fees and fee increases will bring in an estimated $25,550 to fund the Florida Department of Health Pinellas County. DOH will offer a new notary service for $10 a request. Nursing services at charter schools will cost $85 a student. Charging $8 for additional copies of death certificates is estimated to bring in $8,000 of the $25,500. A $10 increase in the fee for medical visits will generate $5,000 and an increase of $5 for group visits should bring in $8,000. DOH also is deleting charges for services that are being bundled in with clinical services and other services. Fee increases at the St. PetersburgClearwater Airport are expected to generate $187,700. Category B terminal service charge is going up from $15 to $50 and charges for Category C from $25 to $50. Passenger screening fee is increasing by 20 cents. Building and Review Services isPinellas County budget hearings start Sept. 11 See FEES, page 1A By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The first of two budget hearings to gather public opinion on millage rates and spending allocations for fiscal year 2014-2015 is scheduled on Thursday, Sept. 11, 6 p.m., in the Fifth Floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. The final hearing is Tuesday, Sept. 23, 6 p.m., also in the Fifth Floor Assembly Room of the courthouse. Final approval of the millage rates and budgets will occur at this meeting. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1. The budget public hearings will be broadcast on PCCTV available on Bright House Channel 622, Verizon Channel 44 and WOW Channel 18. The public can watch the live stream on their computers or mobile devices on www.pinellascounty.org. Pinellas County staff is referring to this years budget process as a year of optimism. According to the budget message found at www.pinellascounty.org/budget, the local economy is showing signs of sustained improvement. Examples include record bed tax collections, record passenger growth at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport and increased activity with development review, which staff says is approaching all-time highs. Building permits and inspections are demonstrating sustained growth, the real estate market continues to improve and sales tax revenues are showing modest growth, staff says. No millage increases are included in next years budgets, as reflected in the Truth in Millage notices sent out from the Property Appraiser Aug. 22. The general fund countywide millage rate remains at 5.2755 mills. The general fund pays most of the countys operating expenses. The FY 2015 general fund budget is just over $590.4 million, up $14.4 million (or 2.5 percent) from FY 2014. A pay raise of 3 percent for all eligible county employees will come from general fund allocations. General fund revenue also will pay for increased funding for the See BUDGET, page 4A By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The city of Largo is looking to expand its tuition reimbursement program offered to employees who are seeking to further their education. Largo commissioners considered a resolution amending the citys personnel regulations Sept. 2. The current provision has allowed 84 employees last year and 94 in the current year to use city funds to take college or university classes toward a new degree. The expanded program would be renamed the Educational Cost Reimbursement benefit, reflecting the ability for employees to use the funds to pay for books and course-related fees. The finance department fields a lot of questions on what can and cannot be reimbursed every year, said management analyst Tyler Thompson. We also wanted to update the thresholds, the limits, to reflect the increasing costs of college tuition, he explained to commissioners Sept. 2. The maximum reimbursement for full-time employees would increase from $2,500 to $3,000 each year. The expanded program also would not require employees to be seeking a full degree in order to be eligible for the funds. There will be an allowance (for) department directors to determine if courses are directly beneficial to an employees position, Thompson said. City staff also suggested adding a reimbursement of up to $1,000 for technical or trade school courses, a provision that prompted some debate. Commissioner Robert Murray, like the rest of the commissioners was in favor of the expansion in general. I support this 100 percent. I think continuing education brings many benefits to employees, and not only See EDUCATION, page 4A See CLASSES, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . . .8A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . . .10A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .11A Health . . . . . . . . . . . .9A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .13A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .13A Police beat . . . . . . . . . .5A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .12A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising VIEWPOINTSThomas MichalskiThoughts on racism and bigotry.

Property values in Largo are projected to increase 3.9 percent, which will make up the majority of the revenue increase. However, City Manager Mac Craig also recommends increasing the property tax rate, which currently is 5.22 mills, or $5.22 per $1,000 in taxable value. The recommended rate is 5.3 mills or $5.30 per $1,000 in taxable value. The rate increase, on top of increased property values, means the city would collect $945,500 more for the general fund.

conference on the type of lifestyle baby boomers are looking for, she said. The generation often looks for continuing education, so the retirement community decided to offer some classes on interesting topics. As we went along, we found what people wanted: a lot of social media, Facebook, Pinterest, Bateman said. I do a class on digital cameras; everybody loves that. This year, Royal Palms has seen the most response for classes on the iPad, iPhone, digital cameras and Facebook, but interests change every year, Bateman said. The classes are a chance to introduce Royal Palms to the community. When they come here, they see how wonderful we are. They see the whole campus, where a lot of times if you just drive by, you have no idea everything that we offer, she explained. Bateman said she absolutely loves teaching the technology classes, though she didnt think she would when she began. She loves the ah-ha moment when her students suddenly understand something new. Thats just like a reward for me, she said. I get nothing but rewards from people that attend the class. Theyre excited. Theyre learning something new. Bob and Mary Kosek of Largo said theyve been to many of Batemans classes. For us, there are always little tips that she has that you forget about or you dont know, Bob Kosek said. Its the same as anything else. We like to dance. Well take dance lessons whenever we can get them. Because you always learn something new. His wife agreed that Bateman was a fantastic teacher. The new electronics today, theyre so much in them, you cant absorb (everything), Mary Kosek said. They keep on changing from day to day. Its good to refresh. Bateman, however, teasingly despaired that so many of her students were taking the class again. If youre overwhelmed, look at the person next to you, theyre even more overwhelmed, she said as she wrapped up the lesson on the iPad keyboard. Im really good at that thats what keeps you coming back. But her students have nothing but compliments for her as they left. I really learned a lot, said Theresa Shine of Clearwater. You can fool around with (the iPad), but you dont really learn all the small little nuances.4A Largo Leader, September 4, 2014 Sheriffs Office, Veterans Services Department, dental care programs and other needs. Residents living in unincorporated Pinellas will continue to pay a Municipal Services Taxing Unit millage rate of 2.09 mills. Increased property values account for the biggest influx of new dollars in the countys coffers. Those increases may cause higher tax bills for residents, despite a lack of millage rate increases. Next years proposed countywide budget is just over $1.92 billion up $148.9 million, or 8.4 percent, compared to 2014. The budget includes money from the Service Level Continuation Account established in 2014. Since we are forecasting positive trends for the next several years, these funds can provide more benefit to the public today, said County Administrator Mark Woodard in his budget message to the board. The SLCA account was started on the advice of former County Administrator Bob LaSala to provide a buffer during a future recession. Woodard said using the SLCA money now would not erode our 15 percent rainy day reserve account. The proposed budget includes a new taxing district to pay for recreation services in the East Lake community. The tentative millage rate is 0.25 mills. Residents who live in the Dunedin Fire District will pay less if the millage rate passes as proposed. The millage rate was decreased after construction of the new fire station was completed. Commissioners will hear public comment on the millage rates and budgets during the two scheduled public hearings. The commission will have an opportunity to change millage rates and budgets during the Sept. 11 and 23 meetings. Final approval must occur on Sept. 23. For more detailed information about the budget, visit www.pinellas county.org/budget and click on the Budget Info FY2015 link on the left-side menu. adding a new fee of $12 per floor/story to verify loading compliance and Florida product certification for window and/or exterior door replacement permits. Staff estimates the new fee will generate $35,290 in revenue. Another new fee of $15 for certification of completion requests more than 15 days after final inspection will bring in $2,500. The Department of Environment and Infrastructure, Transportation and Stormwater Division, requested fee increases for plat reviews, monument inspections and subdivision inspections. The changes are revenue-neutral. Building and Development Review Services also are lowering a number of fees. The changes will cost $122,520. The estimated revenue for the general fund from changes in user fees in fiscal year is 2015 is $34,200. Total revenue is about $9.3 million from non-proprietary user fees a 3.1 percent increase from the revised FY 2014 budget. BUDGET, from page 1A FEES, from page 1A CLASSES, from page 1AAnd nuances are important after tablets like the iPad changed the whole industry from clicking to tapping, Bateman said in her class. Nuances like not writing emails in all caps are important to explain to students, along with which key will turn the capitalization on. It doesnt stay locked because you act like youre yelling if you go all caps, Bateman said in response to a question. If you want all caps and you want to make someone cry you tap (the Shift key) twice, and itll stay capital. She looked toward the student who had asked the question. Tracy, dont send me an email, she pleaded, prompting laughter from her class. The next two iPad classes will be held Tuesdays, Sept. 9 and 16, 1:30 to 3 p.m., at Royal Palms, 200 Lake Ave., Largo.

EDUCATION, from page 1Aemployees but the city as a whole, he said, However, Murray questioned why the maximum reimbursement was lower for trade school courses. I think it shouldnt be delineated between the trade school or (courses) within a university system or college system, he said. Mayor Pat Gerard said she had concerns with price gouging at for-profit schools, explaining that some students overpaid for degree programs without real value. Id want some really tight controls around that, she said. I dont want to see our employees getting into that kind of thing. So I think when you get into technical and trade schools, you got to be really careful who youre dealing with. City staff clarified that the lower threshold reflected a provision in a current contract with employees represented by the Communication Workers of America, who along with other union employees wouldnt be affected by the expansion under consideration. Also trade schools tend to cost less, Thompson said.Commissioners asked for research on the cost of tuition at different trade or technical schools. They unanimously voted to delay any action on the resolution until the next public hearing Tuesday, Sept. 16. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESPolice Chief Jeff Undestad, center, poses with four newly sworn officers, from left, Craig Justice, Matthew Gosier, Grant McMullen and Joel Quattlebaum at Largo City Hall Sept. 2.New police officers Commission delays salary increases y JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners delayed increasing their salaries until after residents vote on charter amendment that would allow their salaries to increase automatically. Commissioners decided to add the charter amendment to the Nov. 2 ballot precisely to avoid the awkward discussion that again occurred during their meeting Sept. 2. Up for their consideration was the 3 percent salary increase granted to the rest of the non-union employees in the upcoming fiscal year, the budget for which will be approved this month. That would increase the mayors salary from $20,180 per year to $20,786 and the commissioners salaries from $13,454 to $13,857 annually. Commissioners Michael Smith again voiced his dissent of the increase and vowed to donate back any salary increase he received to a city department. I have a hard time stomaching that Im voting on giving myself a pay raise, while my citizens, when I walk their homes, and theyre not getting this kind of stuff, he said. I knew how much I was getting when I got elected. Commissioner Jamie Robinson echoed his sentiments, though he admitted that his wife had disagreed with him just the night before. By my principles, I cannot vote to give myself a raise, he said. Commissioner Harriet Crozier said that she and her fellow commissioners do a lot for this city, a commitment that does create a financial strain on their personal budgets. Im not saying this is my livelihood its not. But at the same time, I think we all put in a lot of extra effort and go to a lot of different things, she said. I, personally, would rather wait to hear what the people have to say. Commissioner Curtis Holmes argued that the commissioners would be paid three times what they were if they were paid just minimum wage for their time invested as elected officials. This really is a reimbursement of our own time, he said. Mayor Pat Gerard and Commissioner Robert Murray, neither seeking new terms on the Largo Commission, spoke in favor of the increase, along with Commissioner Woody Brown.This is a very minimal pay increase, Murray said.The vote was delayed until Tuesday, Nov. 18.Commissioners divided on repaving bidSmith and Robinson also were the sole dissenters, on principle, in approving a bid award to Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, a company whose operations in unincorporated Largo has prompted neighbors complaints. Weve had citizens come to us and complained that were having dust and a lot of issues, Robinson explained. If theyre not going to be a good community partner I dont want to be allowing them to do business in the city of Largo. Gerard said that while Robinsons stance was ideal, the city would have to pay $40,000 more to hire the next lowest bidder. They were stopped from expanding their operation into crushing rock and creating even more dust. Theres not much we can do with their current operation, she said. Its not in the city of Largo. The bid award passed with a 5-2 vote.

Carjacking with weapon is one of several charges Ben Jermaine Hughes, 39, faces after St. Petersburg police arrested him. According to Largo police, the female victim was purchasing a movie at the Red Box at 7-Eleven at 5860 Roosevelt Blvd. that night.

St. Petersburg police charged him with loitering and prowling as well as possession of marijuana. The victim was unable to identify Hughes as the man who threatened her. However, officers recovered DNA evidence and latent prints from the scene. Largo police have established probable cause for the carjacking charge, said department spokesman Lt. Paul Amodeo.

The Tourist Development Council compiled the list of recommended recipients from those requesting funds. Money was awarded to the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Outback Bowl/Clearwater Beach Day, Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl, Valspar PGA Championship, Clearwater Jazz Holiday, Bright House Clearwater National Super Boat Championship, Sugar Sand Festival and the East-West Shrine Game. The Convention Visitors Bureau operates the Elite Event Funding Program. Elite events are those that generate a large number of attendees or substantial room nights at county hotels and motels. The program has two categories. A Category 1 event must have at least 25,000 attendees or generate at least 10,000 room nights. A Category 2 event must have at least 15,000 attendees or generate at least 5,000 room nights. The CVB received 12 applications for elite event funding for FY 2015. Four requested Category 1 funding and eight requested Category 2 funding. According to a report to the commission from David Downing, CVB interim director, three of the 12 did not meet eligibility requirements. Category 1 funding Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg: $250,000 The Outback Bowl/Clearwater Beach Day: $150,000 Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl: $135,000 Valspar PGA Championship: $149,000 Category 2 funding Clearwater Jazz Holiday: $100,000 Bright House Clearwater National Super Boat Championship: $100,000 Sugar Sand Festival: $100,000 East-West Shrine Game: $75,000 The money for funding elite events comes from bed tax revenue. The county collects a 5 percent tax on all overnight tourism accommodations. People pay the tax at hotels, motels, condominiums, campgrounds, apartments and private homes that rent for less than six months at a time. Bed tax money pays debt service on Tropicana Field and spring training facilities in Clearwater and Dunedin. Bed taxes also help pay for beach nourishment. In addition, the tax funds marketing of the county as a destination for tourists, business events, sports and film production. Elite events applying for funding must show their ability to market the county. Events that occur on the off-season are preferred. Events also must show they receive community support.Waiver of ethical conflictThe commission voted 6-1 to approve a waiver of ethical conflict for an appointee currently serving on the Tourist Development Council. Commissioner Charlie Justice voted no. Per state law when an appointee serving on an advisory board, such as the TDC, is employed by a business entity that conducts business with the agency, they must provide a waiver of ethical conflict. Jenny Carlisle was appointed to the TDC October 22, 2013. She was hired by Clearwater Marine Aquarium March 26, 2014. CMA plans to ask the TDC for funding for its new aquarium in downtown Clearwater, which would cause an ethical conflict for Carlisle. State law allows the commission to waive the ethical conflict by a two-thirds vote. Carlisle will continue her term as an appointee to the TDC and she can continue working for CMA. If a matter concerning CMA comes before the TDC, Carlisle must announce her conflict and abstain from voting. She also must file a state form documenting her actions with the TDC. Briefs PSTA schedules public budget hearingST.

This newest round of activity comes in the form of an email referencing a missed court appearance. Unlike past scams, these emails attempt to retrieve personal data, forcefully, using a computer virus attached as a zip file. These malicious attachments contain a Trojan Horse virus that becomes active as soon as the file is unzipped. Fictitious county clerks have signed recent examples of these scams. The Pinellas County Clerk of Court would like to remind residents that all court-related communications are sent through normal mail. Jury summons and failure to appear notices are never sent via phone or email. Important tips to remember: The Clerks office does not call or email residents to request payment for missing jury service. The office also will never request payment via any sort of prepaid debit card. The Clerks office does not call or email residents to verify information related to jury service or to notify them that they missed jury service. Communications are only sent by mail. If a resident fails to report for jury service, the individual could receive a failure to appear notice in the mail from a judge in their Circuit. Arrest warrants are not usually issued for failure to report for jury service. Please contact the Clerks office, if you receive one. Do not open an email attachment from any unfamiliar source and never provide personal information to an unfamiliar source by phone or email. For more information, call 4647000.County assessing community needsPinellas County residents are invited to participate in an online community needs assessment through September to help shape housing and community development programs, services and projects. Results of the assessment will be used to identify the communitys needs in areas such as affordable and workforce housing, neighborhood improvements, public facilities and public services to help determine how funds are allocated. Pinellas County government, as lead agency for the Pinellas County Consortium, and the cities of Clearwater, Largo and St. Petersburg, are in the process of developing a five-year plan for the Community Development Block Grant, the HOME Investment Partnerships Program and the Emergency Solutions Grant programs.

At this time of year baby sea turtles, which hatch from eggs deposited by adult sea turtles on area beaches, crawl to the sea, said Lindsey Flynn, an associate sea turtle biologist. In areas of no light or turtle-friendly light, there are more turtle nests. Locally, higher turtle nesting density was found this year in Belleair Shore, PassA-Grille and Redington Beach, said Mike Anderson, supervisor of the Sea Turtle and Aquatic Biology Program at CMA. Anderson said the CMA found 186 total nests this year. The organization monitors nests along almost 26 miles of Pinellas Countys coastline. The area averages about 120 nests per season, with each nest containing on average 100 to 110 eggs, according to the CMA website. The record is 231 nests in 2013. Sea turtle nesting season begins in May as adult females crawl up the beach, dig an egg cavity, deposit the eggs and cover the eggs with sand. The last nest hatches usually by October, Flynn said. Sea turtles are sensitive to bright white lights. Artificial lighting can disturb the crawl process. Lights deter females from emerging onto nesting beaches and can affect the hatchlings getting to the sea. The sea turtles can become dehydrated and waste a lot of energy they need to swim. Instead of going to the sea, turtles sometimes end up on the road or susceptible to predators, Flynn said. Turtle-friendly lighting should include long-wavelength bulbs, be low to the ground and shielded and pointed down. Ways the public can help include turning lights off, minimizing the number of lights, repositioning lights and closing window blinds, Flynn said. Beach items left on the sand can cause problems for turtles, as well. Tents, chairs, toys, cabanas and sand castles can cause obstruction and entanglement issues for the turtles, Flynn said. Flynn showed a picture of sea turtle tracks trying unsuccessfully to get around a row of cabanas. The turtle returned to the sea without depositing her eggs on that beach, she said. More information on sea turtles also is available online: myfwc.com/wildlifehabitats/managed/sea -turtles/turtles-lights/ and www.seewinter.com/ animals-exhibits/meet-animals/sea-turtles. BRIEFS, from page 6Awater sources, and it ensures that our ecosystems remain healthy and functioning now and into the future. Last year, Tampa Bay Water awarded four $5,000 mini-grants that funded projects and events managed by the Lowry Park Zoo, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Keep Pasco Beautiful and Friends of Brooker Creek: Lowry Park Zoo raised their outflow structure to reduce the amount of wastewater discharge during heavy rain events. This project helped keep a Hillsborough River tributary clean. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful used the grant to fund their environmental education program, which includes interactive, fun and educational presentations and outreach to K-12 students throughout Hillsborough County. Keep Pasco Beautiful ran a poster contest for elementary students that focused on educating them about the importance of protecting our drinking water sources. Friends of Brooker Creek built an exhibit at the Brooker Creek Preserve in Pinellas County. The hands-on exhibit illustrates the elements of the water cycle and how surface and groundwater flows move though the watershed. All mini-grant applications received will be reviewed and screened against the programs selection criteria. Organizations receiving a mini-grant will be notified before the end of 2014 and funds will be granted in 2015. Tampa Bay Water provides wholesale water to the public utility systems of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa.

Briefcase Briefcase Young inventors dog dryer wins recognition By BRIAN GOFFINDIAN ROCKS BEACH A sense of purpose and determination is what a young IRB inventor says is necessary to successfully invent something. Marissa Streng, 12, is the inventor of the PuffNFluff, a device to help dry off dogs after their bath. Streng said it was borne out of necessity. Our dog didnt like being wet after his bath, and we didnt like that wet dog smell all over the house, she said. So she came up with a suit that goes on the dog and allows warm air from a regular home hair dryer to blow through the suit and all over the dog. It only takes from 15 to 25 minutes from start to finish, she said. There are draw strings to keep it in place around the neck and tail and Velcro to keep it on along the body. The Puff-N-Fluff has been manufactured and is already in stores. It took determination to get this far. It began with Streng enlisting the help of her mom, Sharon. We went upstairs to the sewing machine and made the prototype, she said. Im really happy and excited that it worked, but if it didnt wed keep trying until it did work. The whole thing began as a third grade science project for Streng. Her Puff-N-Fluff passed the test but it didnt stop there. Our science teacher submitted it to a contest being run at USF. I ended up winning my age division, she said. They say much begets more, and thats what happened to Streng and her invention. Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show were having a segment on young inventors who had been patented and they gave me a call, she said. I was on Fallons opening week and I got a prize of $5,000 in a contest sponsored by General Electric. As for meeting Fallon himself, Streng said it was a pleasant experience. Jimmy Fallon is very kind and made me feel warm and not nervous, she said. It was amazing. All that didnt happen because a 12-year-old girl had a good idea. It happened because of a lot of hard work. Marissas mother Sharon said there was plenty of heavy lifting to do to get this far. It costs thousands of dollars to patent anything, she said. Although it was a lot easier than we thought; once Marissa won the award at USF, their patent people helped us through the procedure to get a patent of our own. It made things a lot easier. Then came the task of getting the product to market, into stores and marketing the Puff-N-Fluff. The hard part about that is that it is such a different item, she said. You almost need to see a video of it to understand how it works. Since the Fallon show we have 150 of them on Amazon but thats about it. We havent put a lot of time or money into marketing; it is hard to do. Still, said her mother, the experience has been invaluable for Marissa. Were extremely proud of her. The nice thing about this is shes learning something that you arent taught in school, she said. She has gone to all the meetings with the manufacturers; shes picked out the colors and talked about what had to be done. She has learned about expenses and marketing, she has had to get up to speak at meetings, it is a priceless education. It is one thing to invent something that people will like. But in this case more than people have to like it; the dogs have to like it too. That doesnt seem to be a problem however if Marissas Pug dog Mojo is any indication. The first time we tried it on him he was like, what are you putting on me, she said. But he quickly got used to the warm air circulating around him. Most dogs are like that; they calm down once they start to get warm. Since that first time Mojo apparently is a fan of the Puff-N-Fluff. We use it every time he has a bath, she said. He now waits for us to lay it out then he walks right into it. Once it is on he normally lies down and just enjoys it. If a product is that well-received by its primary customers then its inventor would seem to have a good future. At least thats what Marissas mom hopes. I hope she is a young inventor in the making and I hope she realizes she can create things and believe in herself and a product and get it going, she said.

Health 9A Leader, September 4, 2014 11350 66th St. N., Largo727-538-7771 A Loving Message to Make Your Day WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM090414Covering All Of Pinellas CountyWe provide non-medical in-home care such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and companionship to help people maintain quality, independent lives in the comfort of their own homes.One of my previous articles, titled The Gift of Time referred to spending time with our elderly loved ones. In our fast pace society, there does not seem to always be enough time to follow through with our good intentions. There is another avenue to let your special family member or friend know that they are in your thoughts and that is simply to mail a thinking of you card or letter. Receiving a card in the mail is personal, a kind act and especially when you live alone, it is sort of like someone just surprised you with a big hug! Sharing a thoughtful card with your loved one reinforces that they are not alone, they are special and you have them in your heart always. Those of us who receive Thinking of You cards via mail, can attest to that warm, uplifting feeling experienced when opening a card filled with kind words. It can make your day, I know it makes mine. Gift giving is an important part of life and a greeting card is a gift. When you send a card, you are sending an emotional piece of yourself. What better way to tell someone you care. Think about the last time you ripped open a bright envelope to find an unexpected note from someone you love inside. Whether it was a family member, or friend, that joy of having their handwriting right there in your hands is irreplaceable. Something about that note, that card, that letter, communicated love and care simply in its presence. Note how you felt Wouldnt it be amazing to help others feel the same? Emails are easy to keep but they are not tangible and enduring in the same way a handwritten card is. Cards can be displayed on desks and mantles and are so memorable. Many of us have saved our loves notes from our children and many cards sent to us on special occasions, stored for future reminiscing. As the elderly glance at their photo albums filled with loving memories, it is equally special to pull cards out to reread those loving messages sent from family and friends. Cards and letters can create a comfort and deep connection between people through the power of words. Send a card or letter to someone special today and imagine the smile on their face, you will indeed make their day. Diane Genovese Owner NEW Y. FREE JOINING FEE.

Three chickens were located in Cross Bayou in the unincorporated Seminole area and one chicken was located in Lake Maggiore in St. Petersburg. Since the beginning of the year, Pinellas County Mosquito Control has received 17 positive results for St. Louis encephalitis nine positive results in Cross Bayou, five positive results at Walsingham Park in Seminole, two positive results in Sawgrass Lake Park in St. Petersburg and one positive result in Lake Maggiore. Sentinel chickens serve as an early-warning detection system for some mosquito-borne diseases and can signal the fact that mosquitoes carrying the diseases are present in the area. There are eight locations in the county where chickens are kept and tested weekly. Mosquito Control technicians are aggressively treating known breeding areas by ground and by air, as well as responding to requests from residents. Additional fogging is ongoing in these areas. St. Louis encephalitis differs from chikungunya, which is not detected in sentinel chickens but is also transmitted by mosquitoes. There have been three confirmed cases of chikungunya in Pinellas County this year. None of the cases were locally acquired. They were each imported from the Caribbean. The public is urged to be diligent in ridding their properties of standing water to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one-quarter inch of standing water, so residents are advised to take the following precautions: Empty water from old tires, flowerpots, garbage can lids, recycling containers, boat tarps and buckets. Eliminate standing water near plumbing drains, air conditioner drips, septic tanks or rain gutters. Flush birdbaths and wading pools weekly. Flush bromeliads twice weekly or treat with a biological larvicide. Change the water in outdoor pet dishes daily. Keep pools adequately chlorinated. Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating gambusia fish. Cover rain barrels with fine mesh screening. Repair rips or tears in door and window screens. In addition, the Florida Department of Health advises residents to follow preventive measures consisting of the 3 Ds: Drain standing water around the home. Dress in light colors and wear loose fitting clothing that covers the arms and legs. Defend yourself by using mosquito repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus on exposed skin, in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations. More information on controlling mosquitoes and a mosquito control request form can be found at www.pinellascounty.org/mosquito, or residents can call Pinellas County Mosquito Control at 464-7503.PWS fundraiser setLARGO One Small Step will host a 5K relay race on Saturday, Oct. 18, 8:30 to 11 a.m., at Eagle Lake Park, Shelter No. 5, 1800 Keene Road.

She will be serving in the San Pablo, Philippines Tagalog-speaking mission for 18 months. The world can offer us so many things, but it is only temporally and will wear off, Emery said.

Emery graduated in 2013 from Largo High School and attended one year at Utah State University in Utah. She joins thousands of other Latter-day Saint missionaries, a handful from Pinellas County, who are serving in locations in North and South America, Africa, Asia and Europe.

The girls were so sad, especially my older daughter, Randi. She was actually sobbing. It was the first time something had died. As parents of kids that age, we really couldnt explain the concept of death. We buried the fish and decided we would let the girls go to the pet store and pick out a new fish. I remembered some of my friends telling me they didnt want to go through that experience, and they would replace the fish if they saw it floating on top of the water. Fish are easy to replace. Over the years, we have had other fish die, and it hasnt been the tragedy it once was to them. For the last fish that died, there wasnt even a toilet bowl funeral or anything. Fish are one thing, but the death of humans is another. Over the years, we have had friends and family die, but I think because the girls were younger, it wasnt something that affected them as much as now that they are 8 and 9 years old. This past year, several friends of our family have died, mostly older people. It is very sad, but their deaths have been expected because of illness. My girls have gone with my husband and myself visiting them in the hospital or nursing home. After the third person died this year, my youngest daughter said, Mom I dont want to visit any more people, because after I see them, they die. I told her it wasnt her and people sometimes get sick, and sometimes its better so they dont suffer, and they go to a heaven, which is a much better place. My girls recently had to deal with the death of a woman we became friends with over the summer who owned the local ceramics gallery and died suddenly. She was only 49 years old. She was a friend to us and my daughters friend, who is also 9, and her mom. It was something we werent expecting. Once I found out, I knew I had to tell the girls because we had been going to the gallery and I felt it was important for them to know what happened. When I told them, they began to cry and started asking questions. Questions that are hard for a parent to answer like, Why does God allow good people to die? There are so many bad people out there and she was a good person. Do babies go to heaven if they die? I tried my best to answer and give them hope that when someone dies something good will come out of it and be for Gods glory. Its just hard for anyone to think that, especially when you are grieving for a loved one. Our friend had two children she left behind. I know they are missing their mom. I know as time goes by, we will have many more deaths to deal with. I think about so many people, including members in my own family who have lost their parents, grandparents, children and close friends. Its never an easy thing to deal with. I know that we have to make sure we keep an open line of communication so our children can ask us questions and express their grief. It helps to heal the hurt. Knowing how much your child can handle when talking about death is important too. I would have never been able to talk to my kids about this most recent death if they werent the age they are now. You know your child and how much information they can handle. Kids are different and process information differently. Sometimes a counselor can help guide you if you need help. As a parent, I want to do everything I can to make that hurt go away, but sometimes we just cant do that. Even though death isnt a subject that many of us want to talk about, it is inevitable.

12A Viewpoints Leader, September 4, 2014A few days ago, for no good reason, I found myself thinking about people, events, sights and sounds that are unlikely to occur in our lifetimes. Heres what I came up with. ANNOUNCEMENT BY ANY TV STATION. Channel XYZ has decided to begin giving weather reports only four times a day, instead of the 74 daily reports weve been airing for the past several decades. Also, we will reduce our repetition of the same news items from our customary 36 times per day to a mere 12. A POST-GAME INTERVIEW WITH NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS HEAD COACH Bill Belichick during which he smiles, jokes, gives extravagant praise to all his players and refrains from saying It is what it is, even once. JUST BEFORE A U.S. AIRLINER TAKES OFF, a flight attendant giving safety instructions speaks so clearly and so slowly that all passengers understand every word he or she says. During the flight, the captain also addresses the passengers in a loud, clear voice, rather than mumbling the way he/she was taught to do, during flight training. SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY gives up on the peace process between Israel and Palestine. A pox on all of them. he said. Both sides are a pack of treacherous liars. Besides, I never really understood all the nuances and implications of the quarrel. Nobody does. These people are nut jobs. PRESIDENT OBAMA GIVES A SPEECH during which he does NOT say Make no mistake ... or Let me be perfectly clear ... at least once. ANNOUNCEMENT BY A COALITION OF HOLLYWOOD SCREENWRITERS. Henceforth we will eliminate the use of the F-word, or its variations, in any of our future films. We also will award a $1 million yearly prize to the screenwriter whose scripts contain the smallest number of profane or obscene expressions. LORNE MICHAELS, PRODUCER OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE plans to shut down the entire show. Its no longer very funny, he said. Without Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Kristen Wiig to lead the way, the show is no longer fun to watch, even for me. The cast looks as if its always trying too hard to get laughs. Belushi and Ratner would weep to watch SNL today. THE BANK OF AMERICA ADMITS IT IS A NEST OF THIEVES. A spokesman today said, The recent $17 billion fine imposed on us doesnt begin to punish the BOA officers who hornswoggled our mortgage applicants before the 2008 crash. Up to now, not one of our scoundrels has spent a day in prison. But tomorrow well publish the names of 144 BOA executives who have confessed to an assortment of felonious lies and swindles. A DAILY NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED THE FOLLOWING OBITUARY: Rudolph Kranke, 77, of Austin, Tex., died this week from years of drinking and debauchery. At his bedside were his three children, none of whom cared much for their father, who was reputed to be one of the most selfish men in the oil industry. There will be no funeral service. Mr. Krankes ashes will be scattered in a dumpster outside the T-Bone Tavern, where he spent most of his declining years. WHILE COVERING A HOUSE FIRE, a veteran TV reporter was able to interview and film a neighbor who was intelligent, calm and well-spoken. The reporter later told his producer, This was one of the few times in 23 years of news work that Ive found a nearby witness whose most perceptive comment was better than Oh my god, it was awful, I heard the fire trucks and said to my wife, Lena, I smell smoke. A PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY INTRODUCED A NEW DRUG, Flarko-Sil, whose side effects can be ignored by all users. These side effects include nausea, depression, belching, delusions, hair loss and itching ears. Users need not consult their primary care doctor before trying Flarko-Sil, whose chief function is its ability to help cross-country hikers keep track of which direction is southwest. THE PENTAGON HAS INVENTED A DRONE THAT WILL NOT ACCIDENTALLY CRASH. Since 2001, more than 400 military drones have malfunctioned and crashed into homes and highways across the land. A Department of Defense official this week announced that the new drone, whose odd nickname is The Unaimed Arrow, is free of all defects. You just wait and see. Trust us, the official said. A SAGGING ECONOMY HAS CAUSED ALL U.S. CASINOS, RACE TRACKS AND LOTTERIES TO SHUT DOWN. Millions of Americans have apparently decided they would rather eat and pay their rent than bet. FOLLOWING A RACIAL INCIDENT OF ANY SIZE, anywhere in America, Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson issued this joint statement: Wed rather not comment at this time. We simply have no idea of what happened and no opinion about whos to blame.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSBullets and bombs are the gifts of the United StatesRe: A growing weariness of things Islamic, by Bob Driver, Aug. 21 Editor: Your editorial regarding the Muslims contained an egregious error. You say: ISIS is a Sunni terrorist organization, so extreme that not even Al Qaeda wants to be associated with it. Then you follow that with the following comment regarding 1.6 billion humans who happen to be Muslim: The day may come and sooner than we think when persons throughout the world will feel unsafe when in the presence of a Muslim. At such a meeting, the non-Muslim may feel a compulsion to ask, Are you a member of ISIS? Do you believe that all non-Muslims are infidels who should be opposed, and even killed? Logic and reason would suggest that a terrorist organization which is so unpopular that it is rejected by Al Qaeda cannot possibly reflect upon the character of billions of Muslims who arent members of either organization. Any person who thinks otherwise is nothing more than an ignorant bigot filled with prejudice, hatred and fear. More often than not such people (in the United States) are warmongers who also happen to promote and celebrate violence such as the United States has committed throughout the Middle East for much longer than either ISIS or Al Qaeda have existed. Now, to your other point The most obvious lesson is that its impossible for any outside government to reform, or fully understand, Iraq or Afghanistan. Anyone who has lived for more than a handful of decades can know and understand precisely what has happened in both Iraq and Afghanistan. The United States of America has plunged both nations into perpetual warfare, which has lasted for over a generation. The United States of America has not done so for the sake of freedom & democracy nor out of any benevolent concern for the citizens of either country. Weve murdered countless thousands of civilians, destroyed the infrastructure and made it next to impossible for these nations to teach generations of their citizens. Needless to say, anyone who happens to be born in a war zone and live their entire life under a perpetual threat of death will value life much differently than (say) a typical middleclass American consumer. It is quite possible that anyone born into such a pressure cooker of death and destruction might possibly notice that the bombs and bullets are gifts of the United States of America and that this might compel them to fight back using whatever means are available. Given that the impoverished people of the Middle East cannot afford nuclear aircraft carriers, missiles, fighter jets and predator drones it is only reasonable to imagine that they will fight back using less expensive technologies which seem more horrific to Americans since they involve direct personal acts of violence of one person against another. Of course, for the good Christians of the United States of America, dropping cluster bombs on humans is just collateral damage. America may have killed many tens of thousands of civilians in the last decade but it was all collateral damage. The terrorists havent killed as much so we tend to magnify their acts of violence as if the beheading of one individual is more offensive than turning countless thousands of Iraqis into ground beef. The good Christian people of America have a long history of indiscriminate killing of civilians. Since the technology of mass murder was invented, the United States of America has killed millions of innocent civilians in Japan, Germany and Vietnam. As if the mass murder wasnt enough for the good Christians of the United States, we invented the nuclear bomb and the hydrogen bomb and we perfected the ICBM and we adopted Mutually Assured Destruction as our suicide pact with the Soviet Union. The Christians never apologized for threatening to atomize millions of humans as an act of warfare. The Christians still have their nuclear weapons, by the way. Do you imagine that the Muslims dont know that they are engaged in a perpetual war with a Christian nation, which has a long history of committing genocide, mass murder of civilians, and presently possesses a nuclear stockpile sufficient to kill the entire population of the planet? Mr. Driver, when have you ever apologized to anyone about the crimes and bloodshed and perpetual aggressive warfare of the United States of America? If Christians were truly a peaceful peace-loving people the nuclear bombs would never have existed. The Muslims didnt invent that weapon! So you might as well apologize for the crimes your nation has committed and the crimes that your nation threatens to commit. David Mathews Clearwater Thoughts on North DakotaRe: North Dakota is not for everyone, by Thomas Michalski, Aug. 21.Editor: I really enjoyed your article about North Dakota. I most likely have more knowledge of your visit up there than anyone else in Seminole. My son received his Ph.D. in marketing from USF about five years ago and became a professor at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. We visited him two summers ago and learned a lot concerning that state. First, Grand Forks is a city of about 70,000. There are no ghettos there. It is primarily a university and Air Force town. He shared with me that the people who are from there are extremely parochial. Classical small town. Will never tell you to your face what they are thinking. I have told him that is typical of a small town anywhere. They have given him a great deal to go there and have treated him well. Unfortunately, he like many others would like to leave. He has two small children and the winters are brutal and long so the children are pretty much house locked. Since Grand Forks is located on a clay foundation, the houses will literally shift in the winter due to the cold. He gets cracks in the walls in the winter that disappear in the summer when things warm up. The experts have told him this is normal. He also has to have a sump pump in the basement due to rising water in the ground come spring. The pump puts the rising water in the backyard so the basement does not flood. Flooding is also an issue there since the Red River flows through the middle of the town. Depending on the snow for that year, they will put up artificial dykes to protect the city. The major concern for this town and most in N.D. are services. If you have a unique medical issue, you must go to a larger town such as Fargo since those services do not exist in the smaller venues. Do not get me wrong; the city itself is just beautiful. Rebuilt since the major flood in but my son has always said he loves four seasons but not have one of them seven months long. N.D. also has the strongest economy of all states in the U.S., but you must really, really, want to live there. Buddy Baker SeminoleDietary supplements regulated, association saysEditor: In Alexandra Lundahls article, Nutritionist explains vitamins and supplements, www.TBNweekly.com, a nutritionist inaccurately states, one problem with the vitamin and supplement industry ... is that it is not regulated by the FDA, and since these things (supplements) are not regulated, its crucial that people educate themselves. In reality, the supplement industry must comply with an extensive regulatory framework implemented and enforced by the Food and Drug Administration and other federal agencies. FDAs website www.fda.gov/Food/Dietarysupplements/default.htm clearly states, FDA regulates both finished dietary supplement products and dietary ingredients. The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in combination with other laws and regulations provide comprehensive federal oversight of the well-regulated supplement industry. These regulations include a requirement to register with the FDA. Companies also must comply with FDAs current good manufacturing practice requirements for dietary supplements, which is a much more stringent standard than for conventional foods. Both FDA and the Federal Trade Commission have authority over product claims and advertising for dietary supplements. In addition, supplement companies must submit to FDA any serious adverse events reported in regard to any of their dietary supplement products the same system used for over-the-counter drugs. Please consider these facts to ensure you provide accurate information to your readers when you publish information about supplements. Haley Chitty Director of communications American Herbal Products Association Silver Spring, Maryland Thoughts on racism and bigotryRacism. Bigotry. Two sure fire words that incite controversy, revulsion and mayhem in many circles. I once was accused of being a bigot for making a disparaging remark about a gay neighbor. I also was labeled a racist because I said something divergent about a black man. The gay guy just happened to be an obnoxious oaf, and I didnt like the black guy because of how he treated his wife and kids. There are white people and straight people I dont like. And certain breeds of dogs are, to me, born to be ridiculed. The scientific name for disliking or fearing dogs is Cynophobia. It really is a dreadful malady that affects millions of people. It is treated with medications and therapeutic procedures. No one is aghast about that. Society allows me to dislike any breed of dog I wish. Or any restaurant, song, newspaper, or car. But in these times of excessive political correctness it has become a mortal sin to make remarks that can be perceived as bigoted or racist. Entertainers, politicians and plain people go out of their way to apologize profusely for referring to certain people in derogatory terms. Even if he or she said it decades before in a fit of anger. Or out of stupidity. Those are the no-no words that can ruin careers and even lives. A case in point is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who in late August apologized for an innocent Chinese joke he made at an Asian Chamber of Commerce summit in Washington. And who can forget the uproar that celebrity cook Paula Deen created when she admitted to using racial slurs 20 years ago. Deen grew up southern before, during and after the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Whether we like it or not whites call blacks derogatory names just like blacks call us Cracker, Honky and White Bread. Its a fact of life. There is no one, and I mean no one, who never used a bigoted or racist word or words to describe another human being. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying through his or her teeth. Im not a born and bred southerner. I hail from Brooklyn, N.Y., where segregation in the 1950s was nonexistent. Black people didnt have to sit in the back of the bus. They were not barred from certain neighborhoods. All races more or less tolerated one another. But now the tide has turned. We are in a tsunami wave of force-feeding about black heritage and the gay pride. Virtually every commercial, news show and feature film includes a minority. August was National Black Business Month and for the first time ever a Tampa Bay Black Authors and Business Showcase will be launched. So what would happen if we announced a Straight Pride Week or a National White Business Month?That would most likely be deemed bigoted or racist. Then why is it acceptable for the national media to make a big deal out of an all black Little League baseball team from Chicago. Isnt it racist not to have whites on the team? Why did one television network go out of its way to show a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. calling black rioters animals? That came during the civil disturbances after the death of Michael Brown, a young black man shot by white police Officer Darren Wilson. Why did national networks allow police and others to be labeled as killers, and murderers, and racists? Why was it not immediately reported that Officer Wilson was said to have suffered severe facial injuries, including an eye socket fracture at the hands of Brown? And that the cop was beaten almost unconscious before he fired his service revolver. What much of the media did not reveal from the outset is that Brown was a suspect in a strong-armed robbery earlier that day, and that he allegedly attempted to wrestle away the officers weapon during the altercation. Or that Brown, who some activists labeled as the child, was 6 feet, 4 inches tall and tipped the scales at 292 pounds. If television and other news outlets are to cover explosive events than their reporters must accurately tell all sides of the story. Regardless of where the chips may fall, it is not the job of the news media to take sides and point fingers. The officer who called rioters animals was likely under enormous stress due to the circumstances. I covered many of the black insurrections of the 1960s and 1970s and the mostly white college disturbances at the time. It was nightmarish to be in the place where bricks, bottles, explosives and gunfire were used in the name of civil protest. I also can tell you that decent blacks do not side with criminally intent rioters. They reject the likes of race baiting so-called civil rights leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who, by the way, hosts PoliticsNation on the cable TV network MSNBC. How is that for a news media conflict of interest? Sharpton rose to fame in 1987 during the rape hoax case created by black teenager Tawana Brawley. He has since made his living from storming into the middle of controversies that may or may not have been shaped by bigotry or racism. Im not nave enough to believe that racists and bigots dont exist. I put black rioters and militants in the same category as Confederate flag-waving white-power fanatics who preach their own brand of hatred and violence against others. Neither represents a majority of anyone. People are racist because they learn it from family members, friends and even co-workers. Some individuals are brought up by parents who might have suffered their own negative experiences with other races. Disagreeing with or about something does not make one a racist or bigot. Condemning an entire race or group because of a few bad apples does.Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. He can be reached at thom firstname.lastname@example.org.

Liz Lee727-422-5818Beautiful Belleair Vistas2940 West Bay Drive #201, Belleair Bluffs090414 OPEN HOUSESunday, Sept. 7 1-4pm Dolphin is a practical joker at seaMother and son were minding their own business. They strolled together along a thoroughfare popular with their kind. Except for them, the streets were empty. Or so we thought. Their pace said they were not going anywhere in particular. Its steady rhythm, first calming and then hypnotic, matched the breathing of someone who was falling asleep. Indeed, local lady FM and her strapping 6-year-old son Fennel were falling into a nice doze. Being dolphins, they kept swimming, but went slower and slower as they succumbed to the luxury of a nap. Suddenly, Fennel startled as if goosed poked from behind by some unseen force. It was the maritime version of falling out of bed. Being a dolphin, Fennel lurched forward in the water with a big splash. Awake now, he and his mother vanished beneath the waves. When they surfaced again, there were now three instead of two dolphins. The third was the big bull Xiphos. He had snuck up behind the dozing pair and goosed the lad to wake them up! The bull has personality. Named for the Greek word for sword, Xiphos gives us a glimpse of the personalities of free-ranging dolphins. The idea of dolphin personalities is both alien and acceptable, depending on your perspective. Animal lovers know perfectly well that animals have personality. The idea that this is debated in some circles is laughable to them (regretful though that laughter might be). On the other hand, animal scientists are warned to avoid the topic of animal personality. We cannot scientifically measure the rich and personal nuances of animal behavior that create personality because animals neither take surveys nor give interviews. (Notable exceptions are the amazing apes who use American Sign Language: Koko the gorilla, Kanzi the bonobo and Chantek the orangutan.) Yet those scientific walls of Jericho (discounting animal personality) are tumbling down. We are freer to talk now. Let me tell you about Xiphos the goosing dolphin. Xiphos is his own man. He first appeared in the study area that Capt. John Heidemann and I monitor under federal permit in May of 2012. Bull-like, he was shadowing a small group of hunting moms and cavorting calves. Capt. Heidemann and I only had two clues that he was there: occasional glimpses of a large dolphin dorsal fin in the distance and a sudden drawing together of the moms to their calves to form a tight group. We cannot suggest that Xiphos is prudent. But we can say that he was well-versed in the discreet ways of dolphins who are new to an area already inhabited by resident dolphins. Xiphos behaved this way toward groups of resident dolphins for the next four months with one notable exception. The exception was in late May. Dolphin Watch reported Xiphos remarkable demonstration with a large fish for local bulls N and Riptab. For many minutes, Xiphos handled the fish in a highly stylized way, with N and Riptab as his riveted audience. Many animals display for many reasons. The other animals watch and judge the displayer (for example, this is how females choose with whom to mate). We inferred that the point of Xiphos orchestrated display was to establish himself among local bulls. If I was not afraid of banishment from the animal behavior scientific community, I would admit that I thought Xiphos showed the kind of cool selfconfidence we celebrate in celebrity George Clooney. Xiphos display apparently worked. Xiphos stayed in local waters for six months. By the fall, he was swimming with local dolphins. The following spring, Xiphos was again in the company of resident dolphins. It looked for a while By ANN WEAVERWho knew that a dolphin might sneak up on other dolphins at sea, appearing out of nowhere without warning? Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver that he was working on another quite remarkable campaign to bond with local bull Schnoz. Named for the nose-like extension as his identifying dorsal fin pattern, Schnoz is among the largest and most dominant of local bulls. Unlike the majority of mature bulls in our local waters, Schnoz has never had a bond with another bull (an adult male alliance) in the 10 years that we have studied him. Thus it was a pleasant surprise to see Xiphos and Schnoz traveling together for the summer. That fall, Xiphos and Schnoz expressed their bond with an extensive display of obvious affection. Afterwards, Xiphos left the area for many months. He came back this spring without Schnozs company but is again busy roaming and goosing. Yes, Xiphos continues his goosey ways. Just a month after young Fennel was goosed out of his nap, Q and her current calf Qody were searching the shallows off a mangrove isle. As we approached, they came together and swung over to the boat in the manner of dolphins greeting a familiar face. Their unhurried cruise alongside us was abruptly interrupted when Qody startled as if goosed poked from behind by some unseen force. Being a dolphin, Qody lurched forward in a flurry with a big splash. Yep, it was Xiphos! He had once again snuck up from behind to join fellow schoolmates. What a personality!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

NOAA advises anyone who sees a stranded dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico to call 877-942-5343 or 877433-8299.Hungry schools of Spanish mackerel make their way into the areaSpanish mackerel fishing is only getting better with each passing week. Hard-bottom areas within a mile of shore are holding decent 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 absolutely covered with them. On a recent snapper trip to one of the 10-mile 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 out 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 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. Redfishing continues to improve with each passing week. Whether youre looking for that school of bruiser sized fish up on the flats or your picking up scattered fish along outer edges of the grass flats at low tide, one thing remains a constant: Find the mullet first then look for the redfish. Topwater plugs get the nod first thing in the morning on the lower tidal stages. Then its gold spoons when the sun and the tide are both high. Cut pinfish or ladyfish chunks are hard to beat when the fish are slowed down by the heat of the day.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com.

THIS WEEKS SPECIALS Poetry and ProseLike Ripe Fruit A well-seasoned character has similar qualities to those found in the ripest fruit. One is beauty. Each ripe fruit has a perfect beauty that radiates from an inner wholeness. The sun tints it with deepening colors until the loveliness of the fruit equals or even surpasses that of the blossom. So with the beauty of holiness. Another is tenderness. Young, green fruit is hard and stone-like. A mature character is noted for flexibility, gentleness, kindness. Another is sweetness. Unripe fruit is sour. Growing in grace means to grow in sympathy and love. A mature individual may know a great deal but yet be bitter. Being acute in judgment, yet quick to censure often indicates an immature heart. A final mark of ripeness is a loose hold on earthly ties. Ripe fruit parts easily from the stem. C.H. Spurgeon Bible Study MonthlyContributor: Joy Cometh in the Morning090414 Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:The IdenticalGenre: Drama and musical Cast: Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, Seth Green, Brian Geraghty, Joe Pantoliano, Blake Rayne, Erin Cottrell and Amanda Crew Director: Dustin Marcellino Rated: PG The Identical tells the compelling story of twin brothers unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression. Drexel Hemsley (Blake Rayne) becomes an iconic s rock n roll star, while Ryan Wade (Rayne) struggles to balance his love for music and pleasing his father. The Rev. Wade (Ray Liotta) and his wife (Ashley Judd) are sure their adopted son has been gifted and called by God to be a preacher. But Ryan challenges his parents vision for his life, and unflinchingly chooses to launch his own music career with his best friend (Seth Green). Encouraged by his wife (Erin Cottrell) and employer (Joe Pantoliano), Ryan embarks on an unpredictable, provocative path performing the legendary music of Drexel Hemsley in sold out venues all across the country. As the brothers destinies tragically collide, Ryan discovers that Drexel is his identical twin, which leads him to question everything hes ever believed about God, family and his own identity. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.FronteraGenre: Drama Cast: Ed Harris, Michael Pea, Eva Longoria, Amy Madigan and Aden Young Director: Michael Berry Rated: PG-13 Set along the tumultuous Arizona-Mexico border, Frontera, starring Ed Harris, Eva Longoria, and Michael Pena, follows Miguel (Pea), a hardworking father and devoted husband who crosses the border illegally and is wrongfully accused of murdering the wife of a former sheriff (Harris). Miguels pregnant wife (Longoria) lands in the hands of corrupt Mexican Coyote smugglers as she tries to help her husband, while the ex-lawman investigates his wifes death and unearths evidence that could destroy one familys future. Frontera examines both sides of the complex issues of immigration and human trafficking that deeply affects both the United States and Mexico. It shows that a border might divide two countries, but cant divide humanity, for good or bad, we are all part of the problem and the solution.God Help the GirlGenre: Drama and musical Cast: Emily Browning, Olly Alexander, Hannah Murray and Pierre Boulanger Director: Stuart Murdoch Not rated From writer/director Stuart Murdoch (lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian) comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide theres only one thing to do: form a pop group.InnocenceGenre: Horror and thriller Cast: Kelly Reilly, Sophie Curtis, Graham Phillips, Linus Roche, Stephanie March, Sarah Sutherland, Perrey Reeves, Liya Kebede, Daniel Zovatto, Sarita Choudrouy, Rachel Heller, Evelina Turen, Mikal Evans, Noelle Beck and Kelly Bensimon Director: Hilary Brougher Rated: PG-13 After the untimely death of her mother in a Montauk surfing accident, Beckett, 16, and her father, novelist Miles Warner, move to the city to begin a new life. Enrolled at the exclusive Hamilton preparatory school in Riverdale, Becekett finds first love and discovers that the school is run by a coven of beautiful and seductive women who perpetuate their fountain of youth by drinking the blood of virgins.MemphisGenre: Documentary Cast: Willis Earl Beal, Lopaka Thomas, Constance Brantley, Devonte Hull, John Gary Williams and Larry Dodson Director: Tim Sutton Not rated A strange singer with god given talent drifts through the mythic city of Memphis under its canopy of ancient oak trees, shattered windows and burning spirituality. Surrounded by lovers, legends, hustlers, preachers and a wolf pack of kids, the unstable per-Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, Blake Rayne star in drama The IdenticalOpening this weekend former avoids the recording studio and is driven to spend time in his own form of self-discovery. Shown in fragments, his journey drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension.

CONCERTS, from page 1B LOOKING AHEAD, from page 2BMovie reviewGilliams Zero Theorem is staggeringly beautiful, maddeningly mind-bogglingTerry Gilliam isnt known for serving up easy-to-follow narratives. His films generally feature worlds that are impossibly out-ofbalance and central characters locked in some intense, deeply personal internal struggle that generally reflects the greatest philosophical dilemmas confounding humanity. For Gilliam fans, The Zero Theorem follows the directors traditional stylistic approach. The result is a breathtaking escapade into Gilliams mystifying dream world a stunning, albeit sometimes ineloquent, masterpiece. The story follows Qohen Leth (Christoph Waltz), an eccentric, cloistered computer genius overwhelmed by a laundry list of phobias and affected by existential angst. Qohen is assigned by Management (Matt Damon) to work on a challenging project: to discover the purpose of existence or, perhaps, to prove the purposelessness of existence. Set in a dystopian high-tech near future one that owes as much to Philip K. Dick as it does to George Orwell The Zero Theorem is overflowing with Gilliams visual hallmarks. It relies upon disjointed realities, domineering omnipresent technology and an insidious and oppressive form of institutional bureaucracy driven by epidemic consumerism. Also present is that peculiar Baroque quality that Gilliam so often embraces. Aesthetically, The Zero Theorem immediately evokes Gilliams 1984 cult classic Brazil, and in a statement from the director, he explains the parallels. When I made Brazil in 1984, I was trying to paint a picture of the world I thought we were living in then, Gilliam said. The Zero Theorem is a glimpse of the world I think we are living in now. While the narrative path is elusive, The Zero Theorem offers audiences plenty of opportunities to connect with Qohen. Qohen is seeking answers to universal questions: Whether or not life holds any meaning and what elements are capable of instilling happiness and a sense of worth into ones life. The film also examines another topical subject as it exposes the increasingly connected and constricted world as one in which privacy and seclusion may soon be unachievable. Waltz delivers a captivating performance as Qohen. His portrait of this reclusive genius is delivered with such tenderness and compassion that it grounds this otherwise unapproachable character who speaks of himself in the plural We are dying, being one of Qohens most frequent utterances and who is either hopelessly delusional or is the only sane being in a world gone mad. David Thewlis plays Qohens manager and handler, Joby. Thewlis renders this awkward middle-management manipulator skillfully: Joby is fast-talking, calculating and sycophantic. Lucas Hedges stars as Managements smug son, an exceptional hacker with an intellect that rivals Qohen along with a few analogous eccentricities. Finally, there is Bainsley played by Mlanie Thierry who provides the films romantic interest. In this instance, however, it is Bainsley who pursues an initially noncommittal Qohen. All of these characters provide inescapable relationships for Qohen a phenomenon he has tried dutifully to avoid, presumably. Those relationships, of course, cause a change in his perception and thereby create a cerebral shift in the way he tackles his truth-seeking mission. As an endless and frenzied procession of outside stimuli threatens to distract him, Qohen wavers between a disciplined pursuit of knowledge and truth and a fear of proving the very thing he fears the most: That everything adds up to nothing. The Zero Theorem is breathtaking surrealistic cinema with a tangled, thorny plot. Its satire is delivered with an intuitive smirk and its existential angst is less suffocating than understated. Audiences and particularly fans of Gilliams work will find this effort a cryptic tour de force, even though its narrative threads are sometimes as unfathomable as ephemeral dreams.

PETERSBURG From the barter system to the American Colonies creating paper IOUs that would become the first governmental paper money currency has evolved. The evolution continues in St. Petersburg as the St. Petersburg Museum of History recently announced that it is the first museum in Florida to accept Bitcoin an online currency for museum products, services and donations. Invented in 2009, Bitcoin is an online currency that is outside of traditional banks, and controlled only by the people choosing to accept them. Museum customers can use Bitpay, an exchange service of Bitcoin, to purchase gifts and memberships from the museums website, www.spmoh.org, or in person utilizing a Bitcoin mobile wallet. This cancels the fear of using a credit card online, and allows for truly instant payment without transaction clearing times or fees. Bitpay sponsors the Bitcoin Bowl played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. We expect the Bitcoin Bowl to bring many more visitors to St. Petersburg and, of course, the Museum of History, said Rui Farias in a press release. Farias is the museums executive director. We look forward to supporting the push for other businesses to accept the online currency. Serving the Tampa Bay community for nearly a century, the St. Petersburg Museum of History is at 335 Second Ave. NE, St. Petersburg. Museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. Did you know Tampa Bay Newspapers print publications are online at www.TBNweekly.com.
