In nonpartisan races, voters will decide who will serve as a judge for the District Court of Appeals and fill two seats on the school board. Board members will be elected to serve four different fire districts. Municipal elections also are taking place in Dunedin, Largo and Seminole. Then, there are the ballot questions. The one attracting the most local attention is the referendum By JULIANA A. TORRESCLEARWATER The last award at the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerces 62nd annual meeting and awards breakfast Sept. 25 was an unexpected surprise to its recipient. I know this honor will come as a surprise to him, especially since we tricked him by getting him to come here to give the invocation, said chamber Chairman Jim Rivenbark. He is one of the most recognized and experienced volunteers in the history of the Largo Police Department. All totaled, he has contributed more than 16,000 volunteer hours to the citizens of Largo. The honoree was the Rev. J. Arnold Johnson, Largo police chaplain. Im speechless, he said when he had reached the podium. This cant be real, but it is. Johnson boarded a bus to Hollywood after graduating high school in New York in 1948. However, at age 17, he attended a Billy Graham rally in Modesto, California, decided to give his life to God and returned to New York to pursue a degree in theology at Nyack College, where he met his wife of 63 years, Mary. We have loved Largo (and) decided after almost 40 years pastoring five churches that we would stay in a place we loved: Largo, Johnson said. He began volunteering for the Largo Police Department in 1987 and has never stopped. According to his good friend, former Chief John Carroll, the Reverend has seen the best and the worst of humanity, yet he always maintains a calm, friendly and soothing demeanor, said By JULIANA A. TORRES LARGO After hearing a volley of public opinion on the matter, it was Largo Commissioner Curtis Holmes own response that prompted his fellow elected officials to back away from censuring him for inappropriate use of a city-issued iPad. Holmes spoke against the advice of his attorney, who argued in his clients defense for 10 minutes during the public hearing Sept. 30. But Holmes said he couldnt help himself but to give an explanation. Call it an error in judgment. Call it ignorance its closer to it. Had I known the copies were coming here I would have never even messed with the stupid thingm, Holmes said to the city officials, several media representatives and residents gathered at Largo City Hall. Its done. Its over. It was my mistake. What can I tell you beyond that? At issue were a number of Facebook posts and YouTube links Holmes sent to his personal email from the iPad using apparently unbeknownst to him an intermediary city-issued email address. The content was mostly politically charged rhetoric. One cartoon in particular was blatantly offensive to Muslims. Another email contained a link to a YouTube video of a woman in her underwear and a tank top, pandering to a webcam. None of the content was illegal or pornographic, and none of it was enough to prompt the forfeiture of a public official, per the city charter. However, if the offensive and inappropriate content were found on a city employees computer, he or she would have been fired, per city policy. Dawn Smolowitz, vice president of the Communication Workers of America Local 3179, a union that represents some of the citys employees, pointed out as much.Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, the Rev.

No millage rate increases were included in budgets for fiscal year 2014-2015, 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 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 2.0957 mills. Millage rates also remain unchanged for the health department, Pinellas Planning Council, Emergency Medical Services and the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative. The budget includes a new taxing district to pay for recreation services in the East Lake community. The millage rate was set at 0.25 mills. The only other change is a reduction in the millage rate for the Dunedin Fire District due to completion of the new fire station. The FY 2015 countywide budget is just over $1.92 billion up $148.9 million, or 8.4 percent, compared to 2014. Increased property values account for the biggest influx of new dollars in the countys coffers. Some residents may have higher Curtis Holmes See CENSURE, page 4ACommissioners refrain from censuring HolmesThere are three contested races in Largo. This story compares the candidates for one of them. Look for the two more stories comparing the four other candidates. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO T he candidates for Largos Seat 2 both said their campaigns began at a eureka moment a sudden realization that they were qualified and capable of becoming a Largo commissioner, backed by a desire to make a difference in their community. For Daniel Ruffner, a longtime Largo resident with a 30-year career in banking and finance, the moment came at a Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce debate last year. Ruffner, 47, acted as the timer for the debate and as he listened to the candidates, realized that their qualifications did not far exceed his own. Thats when I first started to realize that I potentially have something to offer as much as (those) candidates, he said. The Largo High School graduate has three finance degrees and has been a vice president and branch manager of the BB&T on Walsingham Road for 12 years. He said his decades of living and working in the community allows him to be fully invested in the city of Largo. Im not a newcomer. Ive seen the city the good, bad and the different and I want to keep it the great city that it is, he said. He said the impetus to run came from the values instilled into him by his father, a World War II veteran. He said, If you can make your community a better place, you have an obligation to do so.

McGough Nature Park has chosen a name for their new male red-tailed hawk: Dakota. Many members of the community submitted name ideas to The Friends of the Largo Nature Parks. The group chose their favorite and most fitting for the hawk at the Welcome Home Hawks event Sept. 20. The young male was found by a member of the Clearwater Audubon Society and was assessed and cared for by Busch Gardens. During the time the male hawk was healing, he bonded with female hawk, Gwen, and the decision was made to give them both to McGough Nature Park rather than splitting them up. After their arrival at McGough, Dakota had to have his eye removed at Busch Gardens as a result of his injuries to preserve his health. Due to Dakotas injury, he is no longer suited to live in the wild and has found a permanent home at McGough Nature Center. Visit Dakota and the other birds of prey seven days a week, from dawn to dusk, in their outdoor enclosures. For more information, visit LargoNature.com, call 518-3047 or visit the McGough Nature Center, 11901 146th St. N. in Largo. The center is open 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily.

4A Largo Leader, October 2, 2014tax bills, despite the lack of millage rate increases.More money for veterans servicesThe Rev. Bob Swick, chairman and CEO for the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, thanked commissioners for the increased funding for veterans services. Swick joined other local veterans, service providers as well as state officials in chastising the commission for a restructuring of countys services. Veterans complained for months about the changes and the resulting backlog. Plans by two former employees to consolidate Veterans Services with Health and Community Services resulted in a reduction in staff and fewer certified veterans services officers. The county reversed the failed consolidation and Veterans Services Division became a separate program again in June. In FY 2015, the division will have 6.5 full time employees and will receive $663,720 in funding the highest historical staffing and budget level for Veterans Services, according to the budget message from County Administrator Mark Woodard. Thank you for the vote of confidence to rectify an error that took place, Swick said. Swick said 25 percent or more of the countys population are veterans a number that is expected to grow in the coming years as Florida takes steps to be more veteran friendly. Swick pointed out that the 25 percent did not include veterans spouses and family members. He said the increase in staffing takes the county back to where it was two to three years ago, which would allow the division to reach out and touch veterans who are unable to come in to the office. At the first public hearing Sept. 11, members of Faith in Action in Strength Together, turned out to ask the commission to increase funding for adult dental health to $4.3 million. The commission added $500,000 to the budget for that purpose, but FAST said it wasnt enough. Donna Davis was the only representative of FAST that spoke Sept. 23. Were very disappointed it is only going to be $500,000, she said. She repeated the message that $4.3 million was needed to provide services to the working poor. Youve advocated for the children, but we have to take care of the parents, she said. We have wonderful facilities but they are lacking funding. She promised FAST would return with its request next year. The $500,000 in recurring money is intended to provide dental care to uninsured county residents beyond the current care that gives only limited pain relief. Currently, clients with diabetes and heart conditions are eligible for the limited care. The county is working with its stakeholders to come up with a better way to offer basic dental care to low income residents. More than 6,000 visited emergency rooms in 2012, which cost $7.6 million. The FY 2015 budget also includes one-time dollars of $70,000 to support a dental sealant program sponsored by the Juvenile Welfare Board. The money will assist JWBs goal to provide four to six dental sealants for 1,000 students at 12 elementary schools. Commission Chair Karen Seel thanked fellow commissioners and staff for the work done on next years balanced budgets. I thank you for the unanimous vote, she said. I thank staff for all their hard work. She pointed out that Pinellas was the most fiscally prudent county in the state. Our only debt is the sewer system, the rest is pay-as-we-go, she said. Were clearly mindful were spending the taxpayers money. question on Greenlight Pinellas, a plan to fund the countys transit needs, improve bus service and build a rail system using a 1 percent sales tax instead of ad valorem taxes, which funds Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority now. Floridians all will decide on three constitutional amendments. The first is a request to dedicate funds to acquire conservation and recreation land. If passed, 33 percent of net revenues from existing excise tax for the next 20 years would be dedicated toward acquiring, restoring, improving and managing of conservation lands. The second is to allow the use of marijuana for certain medical conditions. A licensed state physician would determine the use and caregivers would be allowed to assist patients with the medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health would be in charge of regulating the production and distribution. The third question involves requirements under which the governor can prospectively fill vacancies in a judicial office. Examples are reaching retirement age or not qualifying for election. Charter amendments also will be found on the ballots of voters in Kenneth City, Largo, Seminole and St. Petersburg. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4.District 13 candidate withdrawsEd Jany, candidate for the office of Representative in Congress, District 13, has withdrawn. Votes cast for Jany will not count. Three other names are on the ballot, incumbent Republican David Jolly, Libertarian candidate Lucas Overby and write-in candidate Michael Stephen Levinson. Look for more election stories in the coming weeks in the newspapers and online at www.TBNweekly.com. BALLOTS, from page 1A BUDGETS, from page 1A CENSURE, from page 1ACommissioner Holmes is wrong. He has no right to privacy, not when it refers to the use of city equipment, she said. The citys computer usage and Internet usage policy is clear: you dont use them for personal use or gain. City employees who violated that policy to a lesser degree were terminated, she said, calling for Holmes to resign. Commissioners also said they wanted to be fair to the city employees. If it were an employee of the city, Id be mad. And justifiably so, said Commissioner Woody Brown. We build rules that the city employees have to adhere to. He stopped short of giving the rest of the commission the responsibility of publicly reprimanding Holmes, calling instead on the voters to judge how he represents the people of Largo and weigh that against this mistake when hes up for reelection. Several residents spoke favorably of Holmes record as commissioner, citing his propensity for questioning and asking for more details of city staff proposals. Holmes is not a go-along-to-get-along kind of guy. He asks hard questions and expects real answers, said Roberta Hosken, a resident of Kent Place in Largo. Many asked the commission to realign their priorities and said they felt that the censure, which commissioners considered during a special meeting, distracted from real city business. Others called for Holmes to be held accountable. No one should be above the rules and laws because of their title. That includes all elected officials, said Barbara Webb of Largo. Commissioners Harriet Crozier said the censure, essentially a public reprimand, amounted to a slap on the wrist. But she said it was necessary for the sake of the employees. They werent given a second chance. We have to conduct ourselves better and follow all of the rules, she said. Mayor Pat Gerard agreed with the repeated assertion that there was no right to privacy on a work computer. Personally, I dont think the censure would make a bit of difference one way or another, she said. Our actions will have no bearing on anything. Commissioner Michael Smith moved to not approve the censure against Holmes. Brown, who had voiced a hope that Holmes had learned from the experience, seconded the motion. It passed 6-1, with Crozier the only vote in favor of the reprimand. This was never anything personal. Im glad that this is over with, and we can get on with the business of the city, Commissioner Jamie Robinson said. Photos by JULIANA A.

Johnson said it was a privilege to serve the Lord and an honor to serve the community. Preachers dont know what theyre missing when they dont offer themselves to serve the people of the community they live in, he said. I cant believe God called me to handle His precious word and to serve Him. Johnson was not the only community member honored during the breakfast, held at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Beach. The chamber began its slate of awards by honoring its retired directors: Laurie Bunce, Marilyn Brown, Debbie Jackson and Debra Jones. The Ambassador of the Year honored for his participation, enthusiasm and recruitment efforts went to Neil Allen of A-to-Z Printing & Graphics. Melody Hunter of Charles Rutenberg Realty was named the committee chairwoman of the year for her oversight of the chambers leads team program. Chamber president Tom Morrissette presented the 2014 presidents award to Scott Lake of R.S. Williams & Associates. Lake went above and beyond to provide the chamber with many great ideas, leadership skills and much humor, Morrissette said. The Bay Star Hotel Group was honored as the business member of the year, one of only three businesses in the chambers history to be given the honor twice. Bay Stars generosity goes beyond the chamber. It has also served the residents of Largo and our region, Morrissette said. The chamber handed out two silver hammer awards, given to recognize brick and mortar projects that have a positive impact on the community. First, Tech Data was recognized for its expanded headquarters, a $6 million project in Largo. It wasnt a certainty that Tech Data would decide to stay when the topic of expansion came up, Rivenbark said. But its CEO, Robert Dutkowsky, decided to double down on Tampa Bay, calling it a beautiful place to raise a family. Also honored was the Pinellas County Sheriffs Administration Building and Public Safety Complex, built on Ulmerton Road in Largo. Finally, the 20th Mac Norcross Small Business Leader of the Year went to Abe Moussa of Total Tile Solutions and Abes Place Tap and Grill. As a businessman, Abe is a success. As a person, there is none better according to family, friends and employees, Rivenbark said. Although known to run a tight ship, he gains the commitment of those who work for him through loyalty and dedication in making their work an opportunity to learn and grow. Rivenbark also reviewed the chambers progress of the past year, explaining the chambers new membership development committee, its campaign Each One, Reach One, and announcing that the chamber had another debt-free year. The breakfast also served to introduce the chambers new chairman-elect, Rick Donohue, general manager of the Hampton Inn & Suites in Largo. Around townI want to do, Ruffner said. Samantha Fenger, 35, a former land use planner and neighborhood organizer, said she initially though she might be too young to run for local office, but had the ambition in her five-year plan. In a conversation Fenger requested with Neil Brickfield, the former Pinellas County commissioner encouraged her to apply to the 2013 Tampa Bay Public Leadership Institute, a process that helped Fenger define her own platform and clarify how she had contributed to the city already. For me, that was the springboard that I needed. I had the This is what I want to do. I was missing the How do you get there? she said. She has a passion for local politics, she said. Just walking up to Largo City Hall to volunteer on its community development advisory board and most recently the planning board Fenger said she felt her head would explode with excitement. You have the ability here to make a difference and be a part of the community, she said. Thats been my calling. The platformsRuffner said he wants to make sure the city of Largo spends tax revenue wisely and frugally. Yes, we want to grow our city, and thats important, but we also want to make sure that were not just spending for spendings sake that we have a good plan lined up, he said. He would like to see the police and fire budgets increase back to pre-recession levels, a priority that comes before lowering next years tax rate more than the slight decrease that commissioners approved for the current year. Theres probably still some room for a little bit more, but before I would cut any more millage rates, I want to restore those salary benefits to the fire and police, Ruffner said. Fenger says she has a clear vision for the city that involves ensuring sustainable growth, providing effective city services and attracting downtown development. She said she also wanted to ensure police and fire were adequately staffed, especially with the future annexations. In the 10 months since shes been watching the Largo Commission closely, she disagreed most strongly with the decision to award a bid to Ajax Paving Industries of Florida. Fenger helped organize her neighbors to protest the noise and air quality disturbances caused by the asphalt plant in unincorporated Largo. The city shouldnt have granted the unrelated bid on principle, she said. From her perspective on the planning board, Fenger said she also didnt agree with the commissions decision to allow the Dick Norris car dealership on U.S. 19 a larger sign, based on the hardship of the overpass construction. The planning board denied the request twice because the company was looking to adhere to national sign standards, not because a real hardship existed, she said. She said she wasnt sure how she felt about the commission extending the deadline for compliance with the sign ordinance, which requires businesses to convert pole signs into monument signs. Im concerned that a lot of those businesses are going to wait that period of time anyway, and going to be just as upset by the time were at 2017, she said. Ruffner said he wants to see businesses get better representation in the city. Hes against the new sign ordinance all together. The cost of a new sign is too high for small businesses, and the commissions decision to extend the deadline proves his point. That tells me that this was probably a mistake and we should revoke it all together, he said. We should be as business-friendly as possible. Ruffner said he felt his hands were tied as a member of the code enforcement board during a recent case, when a pizza business was forced to update their sign ahead of the deadline because of a change the owner had made to it. I wish we had another option, he said. The candidates disagree most sharply on support of the Greenlight Pinellas proposal. Ruffner said he was against spending more tax dollars on a system that isnt widely used now. We will have the highest sales tax in the entire state of Florida. And thats a big concern, he said. As long as people are anchored to their vehicles and not going to use the system, it doesnt make sense to allocate those large funds towards this new system. Fenger said she was in support of better multimodal transportation options as a way to create higher income jobs, increased real estate values and more job opportunities for those who cant afford personal vehicles but want to better their lives. I think its part of our responsibility to help create those opportunities for everybody, she said. Economically speaking, its shown across the country that areas that have that type of transportation have better opportunities to increase their economic development. She said she supported the city working to make its roads more pedestrian-friendly. For more about Fenger, visit www.samanthafenger.com. Search for Ruffner on Linkedin.com.

County 5A Leader, October 2, 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.

According to investigators, a group of individuals are targeting elderly residents in Pinellas County. The telephone scam has been in existence for a while and has been called several different names. During the phone scam, the caller identifies themselves as a relative or someone trying to help a relative. The caller is careful not to initially mention a specific persons name, instead engages the victim as if they are the victims grandchild or similar type relative. The confused victim will mention their relatives name while trying to understand. At times the callers will describe the relative as being in an accident, getting arrested, needing to pay fines or a lawyer or having some sort of gambling debt which needs to be paid immediately. The caller will ask for the money to be sent to distant locations, sometimes out of the country. The suspects will then send a runner with fake identification to pick up the funds, work with a collusive merchant or use other methods to avoid being caught. Detectives encourage residents, if a call such as this is received, to verify the identity of the person calling before completing any transaction. Speak to another relative, law enforcement or trusted source for help. If you have been a victim of this crime or have any information on these phone scams, call Detective Bingham of the Economic Crimes Unit at 582-6200.Teen arrested for sexual batteryST. PETERSBURG A 15-year-old St. Petersburg teen was arrested Sept. 25 after admitting that he had sexually battered a 4-year-old girl. Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives said the incidents occurred on two separate occasions at a private residence in the county. Detectives began their investigation on Thursday, Sept. 25, after the victim disclosed to deputies that the suspect had sexually battered her. Deputies talked to the victim during an unrelated call and contacted detectives once the victim disclosed that the suspect had sexually battered her while she was in his care. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit, identified the suspect as Matthew Wilson. Detectives met with Wilson Sept. 25, and he admitted to the allegations, according to the sheriffs report. Wilson was charged with one count of capital sexual battery and was transported to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center.Man dies after shooting, car crashCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating a vehicle crash and the drivers self-inflicted gunshot wound. According to the sheriffs report posted Wednesday, Sept. 24, the crash occurred at State Road 60 west of County Road 611. The report said a deputy patrolling the area of Baby Dolls, 133833 U.S. 19 N., heard a single gunshot and observed a vehicle leaving the parking lot. The deputy followed the vehicle onto U.S. 19 where deputies attempted a traffic stop at Haines Bayshore Road and U.S. 19. The vehicle, a 2011 Red Chevy Cruz, did not stop and fled from the deputies. The Sheriffs helicopter responded and continued to follow the vehicle. The vehicle headed eastbound over the Courtney Campbell Bridge then made a U-turn and returned westbound. Deputies were able to deploy stop sticks at Damascus Road and State Road 60, which the suspect drove over. The red 2011 Chevy Cruze continued westbound on State Road 60 after striking the stop sticks. After passing County Road 611 the vehicle crossed over into the eastbound lanes and then struck a large billboard sign post and a tree coming to rest on its roof on the sidewalk, on the south side of State Road 60. The driver, James A. Smith, 22, was transported to Mease Countyside where he was pronounced dead. Through the investigation it was determined the driver suffered from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Deputies did locate a firearm in the vehicle.Bicyclist injured when hit by carCLEARWATER A bicyclist was seriously injured when a car struck him just after noon Tuesday, Sept. 23, on NE Coachman Road. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, John Matzke, 40, of Clearwater was transported to St. Josephs Hospital. Matzke was traveling westbound on NE Coachman Road (State Road 590) approaching Old Coachman Road in front of a 1999 Toyota Camry driven by Christopher McBride, 24, of St. Petersburg. As McBride traveled through the intersection, Matzke made a left turn into his path and the car struck the bicycle. Matzke was ejected from his bicycle onto the hood and windshield of the Camry. Charges are pending. Police beat Police beat

Black cats are the last to get adopted and some shelters dont even adopt them out during the Halloween season, so SPOT is offering a positive alternative.

She said the early selection was needed since vice chair Susan Latvala was not running for re-election and normally, the vice chair moved into the chairs position. That wont be happening next year. Were losing Susan Nov. 4, she said. Seel asked that a vice chair be selected to serve from Nov. 5 to 18 or Nov. 5 to Dec. 31. Im still here until Nov. 18, Latvala said. The new person will be sworn in on my last day of service. Commissioner Ken Welch moved that Commissioner John Morroni become vice chair as of Nov. 18 and then chair for 2015. Thats disingenuous to new commissioners, Latvala said. She said the commission had always allowed the new board to make that decision. They get sworn in and then elect the new chair and vice chair, Latvala said. She added, This is no reflection on Mr. Morroni. Morroni agreed that the new board had always picked, saying when he was first elected to the commission, he didnt know who would be the right person to serve in those positions. He said he went along with the majority. It was uncomfortable, he said. Three new commissioners came on board in 2000 Latvala, Morroni and Welch. Seel also was elected for the first time in 2000. She began her service with a governors appointment to the commission in 1999. But, the candidates up for election to fill two spots Latvalas and the seat held by Commissioner Norm Roche, who was defeated in the primary know all of us, he said. He asked how the transition (from the current chair, Seel) would work without knowing who would be chair next year. Its not a big deal, Latvala said. Im fine with selecting a vice chair now, but I think the new people should weigh in on the chair, Commissioner Janet Long said, adding that she would not be able to attend the Nov. 18 meeting. Roche objected, saying the process of selecting the chair and vice chair keeps changing. He said the process of the vice chair becoming the chair had been ongoing for years. Youve been playing that a long time, he said. He added that it was important that newly elected commissioners get to decide. Welch withdrew his motion, and then moved that Morroni serve as vice chair from Nov. 18 to Dec. 31. Nov. 18 is the first scheduled commission meeting after the Nov. 4 election. The commission voted 6-1 in support of Welchs motion. Roche abstained. Latvala has represented District 4 on the Board of County Commissioners since 2000. Four candidates are vying for her job Republican Dave Eggers, Democrat Mark Weinkrantz and noparty-affiliated candidates Marcus Harrison and Carl Folkman. Republican Ed Hooper and Democrat Pat Gerard are running for Roches seat.County administrators contract approvedThe commission voted unanimously to approve the contract with new county administrator Mark Woodard. Seel, who negotiated with Woodard on behalf of the commission, announced that the contract called for a salary of $235,000. And the same benefits of any other county employee, she said. Woodard refused travel benefits and deferred compensation that had been part of the former administrators salary package. This was the easiest negotiation Ive ever been through, Seel said. In other business, commissioners: approved changes to the ordinance regulating high prescribing health clinics in the county, including another one-year extension. approved advertising an Oct. 21 public hearing on an interlocal service boundary agreement with nine municipalities. approved the master fire services agreement with eight municipalities for fire protection service in 10 fire districts. approved multiple agreements for health and community services.

PETERSBURG Pinellas County Utilities crews have stopped the flow of wastewater that was leaking from a sewer main on 62nd Avenue North in St. Petersburg. According to a post of the Pinellas Countys Facebook page, crews shut down the flow just after 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. Officials attribute heavy rains for the rupture of a sewer main about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27. The line, at 7780 62nd Ave. N. in St. Petersburg, carries wastewater to the South Cross Bayou Water Reclamation Facility. Approximately 250 to 500 gallons of wastewater a minute had been flowing into Joes Creek. County water quality officials are asking residents to cease recreational activities that involve the water in Joes Creek, Cross Bayou, Long Bayou and northern Boca Ciega Bay, including the Bay Pines area. Signs are posted at boat launches and other facilities to inform the public. The county is working with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Department of Health to monitor the situation. Residents are advised that the sewer leak does not affect the use of tap water. No boil water notices have been issued. For more, visit www.pinellas county.org or call 464-4000.

Theyre all fantastic, and we have some local favorites but also some new restaurants that have come into town that are smaller and really trying to get their name out there, Farinas said. Some of the old favorites are Frenchys and the Baystar Restaurant Group restaurants, such as Island Way Grill and Rumba, she said. Some of the new culinary faces include Ohana Caf, Green Mint Asian Grill, and First Watch. For the second year in a row, the event will take place at the Westfield Countryside Mall, 27001 U.S. 19 N., and will mostly be set up from the ice skating rink toward Sears, on both the first and second floors. People can reserve tickets either online or at the event itself, which buys a wristband that then gives free admittance to all of the restaurants. Farinas emphasized that this is not one of the kinds of events where people must pay each time they want to sample a new restaurant. Cost for members of the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce or the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association is $25. Cost for general admission is $35; groups of five or more cost $20 per person; and groups of 20 or more people cost $15 each. Farinas said the mall is an ideal location, especially for the restaurants involved, because it provides extra exposure. They get the exposure of our attendees but also the general public of the mall, Farinas said. We saw great exposure last year. Those who are walking through the mall who may not have known about the event see it going on and want to come and try all the restaurants. So the restaurant participants definitely see that exposure, whether its from someone who bought a ticket or someone from the general public who see their banner as theyre walking by. Likewise, the event benefits the city as a whole, she said, because of providing exposure of some of the many things the city has to offer. Its a chance to expose the public to restaurants they may not have heard of or havent tried yet, getting them to visit them in the future, which in turn helps stimulate the local economy. It is estimated that between 600 and 750 people will participate in the event. Anyone with questions may call Farinas at 461-0011, ext. 229.County lowers some stormwater fees By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Mobile home park owners, managers and residents still arent happy, even though county staff recalculated surface water fees, bringing some bills down by as much as 200 percent. The group packed the Pinellas County courthouse in Clearwater Sept. 11 and returned in fewer numbers Sept. 23 to plead with commissioners to defer the higher bills until next year. County staff explained that the tax rolls had already been certified, meaning the bills cant be changed; however, adjustments can be made based on credits for reducing a properties impact on the stormwater system. Staff also is adjusting the credit policy to allow for unique characters of mobile home parks and the trailers themselves. When the county implemented its stormwater fees for fiscal year 2013-2014, some bills were inaccurate, including many mobile home parks. Since those bills were issued, county staff has digitized its data, enabling better calculations of impervious surfaces (that water cannot penetrate). When water from rain, sprinklers and other sources hits impervious surfaces it runs off, eventually making its way to stormwater drains, ditches, ponds where it continues into other waterways, then on to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Pollutants contained in the run off affect the work staff is doing to maintain water quality standards set for the federal and state governments. Keeping the water clean is an expensive measure, and standards are getting stricter. The surface water fee provides a dedicated funding source for maintenance and operations of the countys stormwater systems. Still commissioners were concerned when they learned that for some, bills had gone up as much as 340 percent over last year. Kelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, explained Sept. 11 that last years bills were incorrect incomplete. This years assessments are more accurate, she said. They include all impervious surfaces roads, swimming pools, sidewalks, patios, shuffleboard courts and other structures. Commissioners asked staff to look at removing roadways inside the park and recalculate the bills. Staff did as commissioners asked and also removed walkways in the park to make assessments in mobile home parks be more in line with those for single-family residences. In some cases, bills went down by half the original assessment. Still, mobile home residents, many seniors on a fixed income are facing rent increases of $8 or more a month as property owners pass on the expense. Staff did a good job, said Todd Pressman, representing a conglomerate of mobile home parks. But theres room for improvement. Pressman and other speakers asked that the county consider additional measures to reduce the fee for those who provide affordable housing. He said it could cost thousands of dollars to provide information required to get surface water credits. He said mobile home parks had unique features, such as pervious surfaces underneath the homes. Levy agreed that mobile home parks could have unique features that might qualify them for credits. They need to demonstrate that, she said. Consumers pay for everything, said Commissioner Susan Latvala. This is no different. It is a property tax. Somebody has to pay. It is the way business operates. She said the question is how to make the surface water fee fair to everyone. We havent seen this today, she added. David Scott, DEI director, said staff had done everything the commission had requested in an attempt to make things fair, but at the same time address the need to capture the full contribution properties are making to the stormwater system. Frank Torres, a resident of Oakcrest Mobile Home Park in Largo, told commissioners that the fee increase was a hardship. Im on Social Security. A lot of these people are on Social Security, he said. He said people considered mobile homes as affordable housing. He said his bill was going up $8.52 a month. Ill have to take one day a week and not eat because I have to pay this extra, he said. Commission Chair Karen Seel brought up a plan she tried to instigate last year, but was foiled by the former county administrator. She wants to set up a we care fund to help people on limited incomes pay their bills. The folks in this room have a problem, Commissioner Ken Welch said. We need to find a solution. He said staff had done some good work, but there is more to be done. He said the majority of properties in the county had not experienced huge spikes in their bills. This is a problem, but it is not big, he said. The commission agreed to assemble a committee to talk about ways to issue credits for surface water measures, such as retention ponds. Meanwhile, residents who have an issue should contact Levys office at 464-8759. Seel pointed out that those who rent mobile homes needed to contact the propertys owner or manager, who needs to apply for credits Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERKelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, explains how surface water fees are calculated at a Sept. 23 meeting.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, October 2, 2014Its candidate debate season. Just about a month out from the election, which this year is Nov. 4, it begins to dawn on people: Oh, theres an election coming up in a month. Wonder whos running, and what they stand for? Civic clubs, special-interest groups and news media are eager to step in to help voters get to know the candidates and whats at stake by offering public debates. At St. Petersburg College, were joining the effort by presenting a candidate debate on Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N. SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions is partnering with the Tampa Bay Times to engage the candidates for the Pinellas County Commission and state Legislature in a series of debates from 6 to 9 p.m. I hope readers will turn out to get to know those who seek to represent them in county and state government. Television commercials and mailed fliers aside, a live debate is perhaps the best way for voters to get to know the candidates. Besides putting candidates on the record on key issues, these events also test their knowledge of the issues, their ability to articulate a clear position, their skill in thinking on their feet, and a little bit about their personality. As a former journalist, I have been a moderator or panelist for numerous candidate debates over the years. And my experience is, you never know what might happen at these events. I recall one debate by candidates for a county commission seat (in another county) where one candidate showed up with stacks of position papers. Sweating profusely, he referred to the documents for virtually every question, as he obviously knew little about the issues. There was another debate when one of the candidates, after finishing his session, strolled out of the conference room and began pinching cuttings off the philodendrium plants that lined the atrium and stuffing them up his jacket sleeves.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSPSTA needs house cleaningEditor: As a result of recent disclosures, it is evident that we cannot trust Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority to manage the $2.2 billion Pinellas Greenlight mass transit system. Pinellas voters will vote on a referendum to raise Pinellas sales tax 1 percent in November. Recently, PSTA was required to re-pay the government $354,000 for misuse of federal funds and more recently, it was discovered that PSTA agreed to pay $180,000 toward cleaning up soil and water contamination at the site of its former St. Petersburg bus depot. Since Pinellas residents are not riding the buses, why should we raise taxes to provide more transportation? Rather than raising Pinellas County taxes to 8 percent, the highest sales tax in the state of Florida, I suggest that PSTA begin housecleaning and start with Brad Miller and Ken Welch. The sooner the better. Chuck Graham Pinellas ParkStop the Greenlight madnessEditor: In the words of a popular television personality: Stop the Madness. Greenlight Pinellas and its accompanying billion-dollar plus fiscally reckless planned light rail is just another taxpayer extortion referendum initiative. The pervasive stick-it-to-the-taxpayer mentality in Pinellas County must cease. As a former frequent PSTA rider, I have observed firsthand the preponderance of empty buses, and read in the newspaper skewed ridership counts (PSTA counts every transfer as a new rider). Also as a previous PSTA rider, I can express firsthand, that its rarely a pleasant experience when subjected to the following: unkempt individuals, riders with offensive body odors, profane language, unsanitary buses, crying babies, late buses, lippy bus drivers. Need I say more? Additionally, even if the referendum passes, and a bus is scheduled every 20 minutes, if new riders are subjected to any of the aforementioned, or feel unsafe (especially women) they will not ride again. Plain and simple. One million a month riding the train (which will not happen) at a hypothetical $3 per fare generates only $36 million per year. Can you say long-term indebtedness? Tony Riggs ClearwaterDo something, anything to improve public transportationEditor: I am a rail buff and public transportation believer. I used public transportation in Boston during high school and college; I have used the public systems in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle. They are a wonderful, welcome relief from the trauma of road gridlock and car costs. I am very skeptical that Greenlight Pinellas will deliver on the promised improvements. The history of the many transportation schemes in Pinellas County does not favor such fulfillment. Some of the unexplained down sides of the light-rail proposal: Right of way acquisition, eminent domain very likely. Not-in-my-backyard opposition to the right-of-way route and the acquisition process. Legal defense costs of the right-of-way, the acquisition process and NIMBY opposition. Right-of-way construction and maintenance costs. Equipment acquisition and maintenance costs. Hiring, training and retaining system operators and maintenance personnel. A fixed plan that can not be rerouted unlike buses, as needs and events evolve. Selling a tax increase to Pinellas County voters, essentially a rob Peter to pay Paul swap. In all the rhetoric about Greenlight Pinellas, the impact of climate change has been studiously avoided. When the light-rail line is under water due to rising sea levels, and Pinellas County is an island with fewer people, all the tax-for-trax will be gone forever. I will not live long enough to witness this event, or the desperate scramble to protect Pinellas County residents from that sea level rise. Having said all that, I will vote for Greenlight Pinellas, because we need to do something, anything, to improve public transportation in Pinellas County and relief from the trauma of road gridlock and car costs. If voters approve Greenlight Pinellas, I will support every effort to improve Pinellas County bus transportation, a much better use of tax dollars, and a far more flexible system to cope with evolving needs and events. Mike McDonald ClearwaterConsider a tax on yacht ownersEditor: There are ongoing decisions being made as to how to pay for the Treasure Island Bridge upkeep. The rumors about a tax increase and a bridge tool have been bantered about. These bridges are aesthetically unique and offer beautiful views of the waterways. Having to wait in long lines just to stop for a toll would be a total detriment to the tourist and residents of Treasure Island. It seems that I get stopped every time I cross over the TI drawbridge to wait for a sailboat to pass. No matter what day of the week or hour of the day, the drawbridge goes up and people wait with their cars running because it is too hot to turn the air conditioning off. I would like our local government to consider a tax or an assessment on yacht owners. It could be a charge for carbon emissions to pay for the bridges. That may sound crazy since yachters generally do not use much gas, but think about the lines of traffic waiting patiently for the one of two yachters, who have the luxury of sailing on a work day. Today, Sept. 9, I counted about 12 cars in the northbound lane and 16-18 cars on the southbound side waiting about 10 minutes while one single sailboat slowly navigated through the channel under the bridge. An idling car can release as much pollution as a moving car. For every 10 minutes your engine is off, youll prevent one pound of carbon dioxide from being released. Carbon dioxide is the primary contributor to global warming. Idling wastes fuel and money. An idling car uses between one-fifth to seven-tenths of a gallon of fuel an hour. Folks in yachts interrupt the flow of traffic merely for recreation purposes. Even without charging them more for their leisurely time fun, is catering to yachters over motorists really a luxury that Florida can afford? By my calculation the bridge opening recently put an unnecessary 29 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Multiply that by hundreds of Florida drawbridges and hundreds of openings a day. Georgia Hallman Treasure Island Most Americans like to be well informed. When a large or small event occurs, we want to know at least the basics of what happened and whats going on. One of the inventions for handling this desire is the press conference. A well-run press conference is a thing of beauty. The other kind can be a bungled, confusing disaster. The norm is for a senior official or a designated spokesperson to stand at a lectern while speaking into a microphone. The news media and the general public gather around and wait. Then, any of several things can happen. Ideally, the man or woman doing the talking will have a basic command of the English language and his/her own tongue and thought processes. The public address system will be working. The spokesperson will give the essential facts of the news event, and then if time allows will take questions. Many press conferences dont happen that way. The P.A. system squeals. Instead of having one person on the stage, the mayor or police chief has assembled eight or 10 department heads to stand behind him or her. No one knows why. These bored, often drowsy folks are usually window dressing, unless the mayor turns to one of them to supply added information. Occasionally, the spokesperson has a lisp or a stuttering problem, which makes it hard for listeners or viewers to understand. He/she fumbles, stumbles and stammers. Even when the speaker is precise, he may waste time with comments such as The thoughts and prayers of all of us go out to the family of Josiah Femstittle, who was injured in the. ... etc. Thats usually about six points shy of the truth, since very few of us actually knew Mr. Femstittle. Our primary thought is, Im just glad I wasnt in the truck when it ran off the bridge. So lets skip the flowery sentiments, shall we? Just give the facts. Other unneeded remarks, at least up front, are the self-serving compliments on how quickly first responders reached the scene of the accident. With rare exceptions, todays police, firefighters and EMS units are on their way to the trouble spot within a few seconds of being notified. So who cares whether the trip took three minutes or six? What counts is that the troops got their ASAP. The stopwatch statistics can wait until tomorrow. At some press conferences, a painful itch will be the news media rep who uses the Q. and A. period to show off with long-winded questions. If any reporter cant phrase his/her query in 50 words or less, he should go into politics, not the news business. An experienced spokesperson can sometimes quash a blowhard by succinctly rephrasing a gassy question, or by saying: We dont have that answer right now. Lets move on. The most effective press conferences are usually scheduled well in advance, so that news media can be notified and an appropriate venue chosen. Today, many organizations hire their own public relations or media specialists to set up press conferences, write news releases and carry out the dozens of other tasks needed to get the organizations message to the waiting world. The best P.R. people have worked as reporters or editors, and therefore know how to help and cope with news media. Unfortunately, many modern news conferences are slapdash affairs thrown together by someone who simply wants to see his face on TV or her name on a printed page. Today, any event may serve as a reason for a press conference, especially if the event involved human suffering. The death of a student athlete in a car crash may bring within 48 hours a front-yard TV interview with grieving family members or friends. The gist of the statements (He was a great guy) is usually unremarkable, but thats true of much of life, and news. I hope youll forgive my somewhat jaundiced view of press conferences. After several decades as a reporter, editor, columnist and P.R. man, I tend to be underwhelmed by todays avalanche of information being peddled as news or other useful information. Much of it is simply not either of these things. A citizens approach to any and all incoming data should be to ask a few pointed questions: Is this stuff possibly or probably true? Even so, do I need it to help me function? Can I check it out later, such as when I retire? Answers to these queries may not be easy to find. But theyre worth a try, and its better than drinking the Kool-Aid or buying into the okey-doke. Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The danger, of course, is that we all have our own favorites, and mine wont necessarily agree with yours. I could be accused of poor judgment due to leaving one out of my list that is on the top of yours. But I will weather that storm regardless, and subject you to my list in hopes that if not the sites themselves, my rationale for including them will open some eyes to the possibilities and open some minds to change. The sites I will discuss will be known to most of you if you have been doing genealogy research for a while, but a couple may be new. I realize also that favorite websites can change status based on the particular research trail you are on at the time. I have tried to overcome that pitfall by looking at sites that have a broad and universal appeal. First on my list is Ancestry.com. Everyone must at least be familiar with the name because of the commercials they have on TV. Lets face it, it is one the largest (if not the largest) research website out there. And because of agreements with other sites it is growing in size and usefulness daily, and its reach is international. So its size and reach are two reasons it is on my list, but another reason is its accessibility. Nearly every public library you can think of today subscribes to Ancestry and provides free access to it for its patrons. You have to be at a library to use it, but that is a small inconvenience for the service you get. And, as a side note, if you take the time to look around a bit while at the library, you may find other great genealogy resources just waiting to be used. The next website on my list is Fold3.com. It is a subscription site as is Ancestry (in fact Ancestry owns it), but its content is rather unique, and we here in Pinellas County have a wonderful opportunity to get free use of it. Fold3 specializes in military records and documents. So you can find complete rolls, rosters, compiled service records, and pension application files on your Revolutionary War Ancestors. And you can find many of those same records for wars since then (War of 1812, Civil War, Mexican War, Spanish American War, etc.). The actual availability of records differs for each war, but Fold3 is unique in the breadth and depth of what it offers. The icing on the cake is that the Largo Pubic Library has recently subscribed to the site so you have free access to it from the library or from your home computer so long as you access it through the Largo Library website and, with few exceptions, have a library card from a Pinellas County library. OK, those are the only fee sites on my list. My third site is FamilySearch.org, and it is free access. As most of you may know, the Mormon Church sponsors the site, but everyone can reap the benefit of the genealogy information available on it. The church has been providing access to ancestral records since 1938, and now they have heaps of files available online. They recently announced they passed one billion digital images consisting of multiple billions of records, 3.2 billion of which have been indexed for searching. Their aggressive plan to add to the online digital collection results in around 500,000 new digital images a day. In fact, Ancestry and Family Search have entered into mutual support agreements to bring that data online quickly using their combined resources with us essentially being the beneficiaries. My fourth site also is free, FindAGrave.com. Ancestry bought Find A Grave not too long ago, but it was one of my favorite sites even before that. It is completely volunteer supported and boasts over 100 million grave records. A record is a page recounting a tombstone inscription, family information, obituaries, and possibly more. Remember, it is volunteer supported so there is no hard rule about what information beyond the basics will be recorded. It is easy to become immersed in the site by searching for one ancestor, and finding on his or her memorial page hot links to the memorial pages of parents, spouses, and children. My guess is that many of you are familiar with the sites Ive included so far because they are so popular. In a recent study GenealogyInTime Magazine listed Ancestry, Find A Grave, and Family Search as the first, second, and third most visited genealogy websites respectively. Fold3 was number twenty. The last two choices are not as well known. My fifth site is the U.S. Government Bureau of Land Management at www.blm.gov/wo/st/en.html. If you have an ancestor who acquired land from the U.S. government, then the document (called a land patent) that transferred that land from public to private ownership will be online at the BLM. That document is called a land patent and the BLM has millions of them digitized and searchable. I include this site because land records are so pervasive in our history. Legislation dealing with military bounty land, homesteading, cash entries, etc., have affected millions of Americans over the years, and especially from about the mid 1800s through the early 1900s. I like this site also because it is one that, if your search is successful, encourages you to go to the National Archives website to get further original land transfer documentation. My last site is one managed by genealogist Joe Beine: www.germanroots.com/databases.html. Joe constantly updates several lists of sites that you can use in your research. So there is no direct data here, but instead it offers places you can go to find data. Although the site contains germanroots in Genealogy exposedPeter Summers Start researching your genealogy at the librarythe title, do not be deceived. The references he points you to go well beyond what is implied. His lists include online searchable death indexes, birth and marriage records, ship passenger lists, census records, county histories, historical newspapers, African-American records, Native American records, military records, and more. Joe is very conscientious about keeping his lists updated, so dead links are kept to a minimum Before I close this column, I should mention some classes available from the Pinellas Genealogy Society that relate to some of the sites Ive listed. After all, some of the sites are large and intricate and having a class to disclose hints and tips about using them can save you a lot of time. We have classes directly aimed at getting the most out of Ancestry, Fold3, and Family Search. We also have a class on property records, and another on the Homestead Act that include insights to using the BLM site. And for those of you who like to get off the beaten track a bit, we have a periodic class called Internet Explorations where we explore some of the smaller and more obscure sites that dont get the attention that Ancestry and FamilySearch do. Check the PGS class list below, or at www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~flpgs/index.htm for the list of upcoming classes. So there you have it my list. I know that there are many useful sites I have not included, and I appreciate the fact that your list may not be the same as mine, but I hope you see why, due to content or access, I chose the ones I did. I also hope that you have been motivated to visit and use these sites, whether you are an experienced researcher or are new to the study of your family history. Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972. He is past president of the Pinellas Genealogy Society.

Once your family has established a school routine, now is the time to make education a priority at home. There are several ways parents can instill good learning habits with their children: Make sure they do homework before playtime, television or video games. Talk with them about their schoolwork and ask if they need additional help. Make sure children are reading or that you read to them regularly. Ensure that children get enough sleep on school nights. There is also a wealth of opportunities to make a difference in students lives within our district. Nearly all of PCS schools have independent organizations involving parents and teachers. Most popular, the Parent Teacher Association or PTA addresses issues that are important to parents and school administrators, such as funding, teachers and capabilities for schools to thrive. Organizations comparable to the PTA are typically open to anyone who wants to be involved, require nominal membership dues and support the education, health and welfare of children. School Advisory Councils are another great way to get involved in our school district. Each school has a SAC with representation from various segments of the community, from parents and teachers to area business professionals and community leaders. The purpose of SAC is to assist the school in the preparation and evaluation of the school improvement plan and to assist the principal with the annual school budget. If you are interested in participating in an organization such as PTA or SAC, contact a PCS school for more information. We know family engagement has a positive and longstanding impact on student achievement and the future success of students. There are numerous opportunities for individuals to become involved with our district Michael Grego A schools centennial big meaning to mom, her kidsFor the past few years, Ive been wondering just how common it is to have your kids go to the same elementary school you went to when you were a kid. I never attended any of my parents schools, not even their college, which seems to be a little more popular these days. But both of my girls go to the same elementary school I went to when I was younger. When my oldest daughter started kindergarten at the school, one of the teachers I had in fifth grade was still teaching. When I went to say hello, she teased me and said she was retiring because I made her feel old since my kids were now going to school there. She actually did retire the following year, so now there arent any of the teachers that were there when I was. My older daughter does have one of the teachers both my two sisters had when they went to school, which is pretty cool. The school I am talking about is Seminole Elementary School. If you live in Pinellas County, you probably know someone who has gone to school or worked there. Next year, the school will be 100 years old, so thousands of students have walked its halls. The oldest part of the school, which was built in 1915, is the building located off of Park Boulevard. When I went to school there, that particular building was the cafeteria. Today, the building is referred to as the centennial building and is used for the RClub, an afterschool program. I always laugh when I tell my youngest daughter a date in 19-something, like my birthday or when I graduated from high school, she says to me, You mean back in the 19s? I guess when you are born in the 2000s, that was a long time ago. It seems like yesterday when I went to Seminole Elementary. I can remember how it was set up and where all the classrooms were. Today, the students have art in what was once the office. The office today is one of the newer buildings on campus, at the opposite end of where the office was when I was there. Even with all the changes, my oldest daughter is in the same fifthgrade classroom I was in when I was there. Whats exciting is she will be graduating from the school the year of the centennial celebration. I somehow ended up on the centennial celebration planning committee, which is something I enjoy helping out with given my history with the school. We have a date for the event, which will be held on the schools campus, on Saturday, May 2, 2015. The community is invited to attend the event. We want to reach out to prior students, teachers and administrators who were at Seminole Elementary. We plan on having the entertainment made up of prior students. We are looking for food vendors and sponsors for our event. If you want more information, you can email the planning committee at SeminoleES100@gmail.com or look on Facebook for Seminole Elementary School Centennial Celebration to get updates on the big days events. If youre interested in helping plan the event, meetings are held first Mondays, 3:15 p.m., at Seminole Elementary School, 10950 74th Ave. N., Seminole. Since I started to help plan for the centennial celebration, I am finding that more and more people in the community have gone to Seminole Elementary School.

Once processed, our schools offer orientation and training for volunteers. At your selected school, you can decide what activity you would like to volunteer for, as well as when you would like to volunteer to meet your schedule. Another way for families to take part in their childrens education is through our Parent Academy, Preparing Parents to Advocate for Their Children & Community or P2ACC. Throughout the year, free Parent Academy workshops are held and focus on three primary areas: academic success, parenting and advocacy, and personal and individual growth. This October, join us for our Mentor Recruitment Fair. The event will be a one-stop-shop for those who are interested in volunteering in our district to obtain a background check, attend a mentor workshop and be matched with a student at the school of their choice.

KC earned her bachelors degree at Middle Tennessee State University, her masters at DePaul University and her doctorate at National Chiropractic College in Lombard, Ill. She began her career as a medical technologist in Tennessee. Following this, she then went on to become Director of Strategy Development at Baxter Travenol in Illinois. At this time, KC decided to change her healthcare path and pursue a doctorate of chiropractic, which truly was her passion. She graduated from National Chiropractic College in Lombard, after which she opened a multi-doctor chiropractic clinic in Woodstock, Ill., where she practiced for 20 years.

The third annual Fireman John Memorial Fishing Tournament Sept. 13 raised $2,400 to benefit All Childrens Hospital in support of Florida Safe Pools, providing swimming lessons and life jackets for children with special needs. The tournament included 71 anglers and many sponsors. We had a wonderful turnout and a great family, fun time, reported Iris Merryweather, event organizer. The event is named in honor of retired Pinellas Park firefighter John Litz or Fireman John, who was an avid fisherman. In September 2011, while fishing with a friend, Litz was thrown from the boat and drowned. He was not wearing a life jacket.

Recent rains have the fish bitingDespite continuous rains, fishing especially inshore remains very good throughout the entire region. Redfish, flounder and snook are all feeding well with the cooler water temperatures that are largely due to all the recent rains. Baitfish are thick along the beaches and passes and with the good tides brought on by the new moon, live bait fishing doesnt get a whole lot better. Early morning low tides have the fish staged off the edges of the grass flats, creating the perfect setup for locating a school of hungry redfish. Find the activity and youll most likely find some fish. Dipping terns or diving pelicans are always a welcome sight when working an edge, but it still comes back to the mullet. If there arent any mullet working along the drop-off chances are there wont be many redfish around. Flounder are a welcome by-catch when hunting down the redfish. Flounder love the patchy bottom found along the deep side of the edge. At times, especially when the current is strong, adding a small split shot just above the hook will allow for your bait to not only get to the bottom where the flounder are holding, but will slow your drift enough for the redfish to pick it up. Near shore action has been really good this past week. Tarpon, cobia, Spanish mackerel and flounder are feeding on the masses of bait all along the beach. Targeting rubble piles, jetties and natural hard bottom will provide non-stop action when using live bait. Tarpon can be seen crashing through bait balls the first half of the day, freelining pinfish or small ladyfish through the bait will give you a chance for a hook-up. With all the bait around it would be a good idea to keep a fresh chum block out when mackerel fishing in an attempt to lure a migrating cobia behind the boat, there have been plenty around.

Teacher, I need a new page; Ive spoiled this one. I exchanged the blots and stains for an unspotted page. Into his sad eyes I smiled; Do better now, my child.

Taking the old stained, blotted page, He gave me a new unspotted one and into my sad heart smiled, Do better now, my child.

WEEKLY SPECIALS 100214 Once again, West Coast Players has dared to be different, staging an unconventional production early in its 2014-15 season. Thanks to expert direction, an attention-grabbing script and outstanding performances, Monkey Monkey Bottle of Beer, How Many Monkeys Have We Here? confirms this theaters ability to present compelling, thought-provoking high-quality arts programming and to introduce lesser-known playwrights to appreciative Tampa Bay audiences. Marsha Sheiness Monkey Monkey Bottle of Beer, How Many Monkeys Have We Here? runs through Oct. 5 at West Coast Players, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $19. Call 437-2363 or visit www.wcplayers.org. While the playwright may not have achieved instantaneous name recognition in Florida yet Sheiness is likely far more familiar to theatergoers in New York City where she has been involved in almost every aspect of the business from acting, writing and directing to teaching and mentoring. According to the biography on her website, Sheiness has helmed more than 30 plays over the years. Her work has been produced Off-Broadway, Off-Off Broadway, on television, and in regional, community, university, and high school theatres across the United States. Sheiness previously taught playwriting at The New School and at Eccentric Circles Theatre in New York City, as well as at the Harbor Playhouse School of Dramatic Arts in Corpus Christi, Texas. The playwright has authored a number of dramas, comedydramas and even a musical adaptation of Great Expectations. Tackling a variety of themes, her plays cover such topics as a 40-year-old womans past selves; a Jewish Texas couple in their 70s; gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual teenagers; and characters with dementia. Monkey Monkey Bottle of Beer, How Many Monkeys Have We Here? debuted in the early 1970s with its premier production at Cincinnati Playhouse in the park directed by Harold Scott. Following that first appearance, the production aired in 1974 on Theater in America, produced by PBS New York affiliate WNET. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., Monkey Monkey Bottle of Beer, How Many Monkeys Have We Here? is a psychodrama set in the waiting room of a clinic. The year is 1974. One by one, five women arrive for their scheduled appointments. Gradually, it is revealed that the five mothers have been part of an experiment: Their developmentally disabled children have undergone a two-month treatment program to turn them into geniuses. It is the interchange between these five women that shapes this drama. Sheiness shrewdly introduces a menagerie of characters, representing markedly dissimilar socioeconomic backgrounds. The dialogue is genuine and detailed, though at times intentionally cryptic so that certain details about the nature of the treatment remain unknown to the audience. Along the way, the women reveal their motivations sometimes intentionally, sometimes inadvertently. They are detached strangers momentarily connected by happenstance, mechanically cycling through their own fears and regrets in a mesmerizing display of self-realization. The five mothers are portrayed by Sadra Bostic (Mrs. Evans), Laurel E. Braswell (Mrs. Lewis), Tammy Dalton (Mrs. Todd), Sandra Magnone (Mrs. Luther) and Samantha Parisi (Mrs. Amber). Each member of this ensemble gives a captivating and engaging performance, oscillating flawlessly from uneasy humor to poignant revelation. There is no trace of exaggeration in the dialogue and the actresses do not depend on hyperbole to overstate their characters. Bosticks Evans, for instance, is standoffish and cynical, but only to a point. Likewise, Parisis Amber is sufficiently snobbish. Just as there are no weak links in this cast, there also are no scene-stealers which is fitting considering the importance of the nervous rapport that evolves between the characters. The performers have achieved a transcendent harmony in depicting wary discord. The cast also includes Judi Dupree as the nurse and Ashton Sarlo as Joe Evans who both give solid performances. Tom Costello directs this production of Monkey Monkey Bottle of Beer, How Many Monkeys Have We Here? In his notes, he reveals that he got to work on both the stage and television version of the play, and is excited to have the opportunity to bring it to the stage again. Weve assembled a remarkable cast, stage manager and production team to bring you a compelling drama that will keep you guessing and often on the edge of your seat right up to the stunning climax, Costello says. The West Coast Players production of this edgy and provocative drama shines brightest in the exchanges between its diverse characters, rendered flawlessly by some of the best performers in the Tampa Bay area. While the play may date back to the early 1970s, the subject matter remains relevant. Earlier this month, TechCrunch, a blog dedicated to trending technology news and profiling new Internet products and companies, reported that the worlds first genetically modified babies will probably graduate from high school in 2015.

Paris in the 1920s was the center of the artistic universe and marked a transition to artistic maturity for Salvador Dal and many other famous artists who were drawn to the city for its rich, creative inspiration.

But his life shifts into overdrive when Simon Keller (John Cusack) hijacks Peter to be his getaway driver in a $9 million heist.The Decent OneGenre: Documentary Director: Vanessa Lapa Not rated A recently discovered cache of hundreds of personal letters, diaries and photos belonging to the Nazi Gestapo chief seems to reveal a thoughtful, loving husband and devoted father to his daughter. The documents first found in the Himmler family house in 1945 were hidden in Tel Aviv for decades and sold to the father of the Israeli documentary filmmaker, Vanessa Lapa. Through readings of Himmlers and his familys most personal writings and rarely seen restored film footage from key German archives, Lapa has fashioned a fascinating case study: a portrait of the man responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the Second World War, who thought of himself in heroic terms.Men, Women & ChildrenGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris and Adam Sandler Director: Jason Reitman Rated: R Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the Internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the Internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose some tragic, some hopeful as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.The Blue RoomGenre: Drama Cast: Matthieu Amalric, Lea Drucker, Stephanie Cleau and Laurent Poitrenaux Director: Matthieu Amalric Not rated A man and a woman, secretly in love, alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. The Good LieGenre: Drama Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal and Corey Stoll Director: Philippe Falardeau Rated: PG-13 They were known simply as The Lost Boys. Orphaned by the brutal civil war in Sudan, which began in 1983, these young victims traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot in search of safety. Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3,600 lost boys, as well as girls, to America. In The Good Lie, Philippe Falardeau brings the story of their survival and triumph to life. Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon stars alongside Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, and newcomer Kuoth Wiel, some of whom were also children of war. Mamere and Theo are sons of the Chief in their village in Southern Sudan. When an attack by the Northern militia destroys their home and kills their parents, eldest son Theo is forced to assume the role of Chief and lead a group of young survivors, including his sister Abital, away from harm. But the hostile, treacherous terrain has other dangers in store for them. As the tattered group makes the difficult trek to Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, they meet other fleeing children, forging a bond with Jeremiah, who, at 13, is already a man of faith, and Paul, whose skills become essential to their survival. Thirteen years later, the now young adults are given the opportunity to leave the camp and resettle in America. Upon arriving in Kansas, they are met by Carrie Davis, an employment agency counselor who has been enlisted to help find them jobs no easy task, when things like light switches and telephones are brand new to them. The Hero of Color CityGenre: Animation Cast: Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Wayne Brady, Craig Ferguson, Owen Wilson and Jessica Capshaw Director: Frank Gladstone Rated: G Each night, when Ben falls asleep, his Crayons jump into their magical Crayon Box that transports them to their home in Color City, a world of dazzling hues, soaring fantasy and the whimsy of childhood. This land is fed by an enchanted rainbow and waterfall that provides the city and its citizens with color. When Yellow, our timid heroine, is accidentally left behind in Bens room, she inadvertently awakens two Unfinished Drawings: King Scrawl, a huge, powerful, mute monster and Gnat, Scrawls motormouthed, overactive sidekick. In search of color for themselves, they follow Yellow to Color City, causing panic and concern. If Scrawl and Gnat can claim the waterfall for themselves, Color City will fade, and along with it, our lovable crayon characters will disappear. Its up to Yellow and a motley crew of Crayons, bodacious and brave, Blue, meticulous, fussy Green, satirical Red, pessimistic Black and overanxious White to save the day. Meeting with fantastical creatures and fun adventures along the way, Yellow discovers she has more courage and strength than she knew and learns to believe in herself and to count on the support of her friends. Replete with valuable life lessons, this enchanting story will entertain and inspire in a stunningly rendered and utterly unique animated world.The LiberatorGenre: Drama Cast: Edgar Ramrez, Mara Valverde, Danny Huston, Imanol Arias and Gary Lewis Director: Alberto Arvelo Rated: R Simn Bolvar fought over 100 battles against the Spanish Empire in South America. He rode over 70,000 miles on horseback. His military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great. His army never conquered it liberated. The film stars dgar Ramrez, with a soundtrack by Gustavo Dudamel. For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu. Skarsgard, Toni Collette, Jean Reno and Veronica Ferres Director: Peter Chelsom Rated: R Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasnt really tasted life, and yet hes offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom.Left BehindGenre: Action, adventure and thriller Cast: Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Lea Thompson, Jordan Sparks, Quinton Aaron and Martin Klebba Director: Vic Armstrong Rated: PG-13 Left Behind is an apocalyptic action-thriller starring Nicolas Cage based on the New York Times bestselling novel that brings biblical prophecy to life in modern times. The most important event in the history of mankind is happening right now. In the blink of an eye, the biblical Rapture strikes the world. Millions of people disappear without a trace. All that remains are their clothes and belongings, and in an instant, terror and chaos spread around the world. The vanishings cause unmanned vehicles to crash and burn. Planes fall from the sky. Emergency forces everywhere are devastated. Gridlock, riots and looting overrun the cities. There is no one to help or provide answers. In a moment, the entire planet is plunged into darkness. The Steele family is caught on the razors edge of that darkness. Ray Steele, an airline pilot, struggles to calm, and ultimately to save the lives of the passengers that remain on his flight, as the world below loses its ability to help his plane, and any other to safety. Running out of fuel, his equipment failing, his crew escalating into panic, Ray must guide the plane with the help of GWN reporter, Cameron Buck Williams who takes over the role of co-pilot in the face of the crisis. For Buck Williams, being trapped at 30,000 feet with a plane full of terrified passengers means a struggle to understand the incomprehensible. On the ground, Rays daughter Chloe Steele struggles to find her young brother and mother, both of whom may have disappeared in the biblical event. Forcing herself through the chaos, Chloe must navigate a world filled with terror and despair. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Music in the Park to feature Comfort Zone By LEE CLARK ZUMPE SEMINOLE The fifth concert in citys annual Music in the Park series will feature a performance by Comfort Zone on Friday, Oct. 3.

Those eagerly anticipating the new music can get a taste of old-school Floyd when the internationallyknown tribute band The Australian Pink Floyd Show visits the Tampa Bay area on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $50.50. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. The Set the Controls Tour 2014 will draw heavily from the iconic Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Division Bell albums with anticipated performances of Comfortably Numb, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Time. There will also be an interactive element to the show where audience members will be asked to help choose the material that the band will play during certain sections of their two-hour set. Audiences can expect more than just a competent interpretation of Pink Floyds work. This show is billed as an audiovisual extravaganza featuring a multi-million dollar light show, multiple inflatables and stunning laser effects, all coupled with noteperfect renditions of Pink Floyds biggest hits. This show has already been seen by 4 million people. The name of the tour comes from Pink Floyds classic song Set The Controls for the Heart Of the Sun, which appeared on the bands A Saucerful of Secrets album. The Australian Pink Floyd Show will be performing Pink Floyd linchpins such as Another Brick In The Wall, Money and Wish You Were Here as well as a few surprise tracks. Lorelei McBroom will also be appearing on this tour. Her credentials are staggering: She toured with Pink Floyd on the Momentary Lapse of Reason and Delicate Sound of Thunder tours, appeared in the videos for The Dogs of War, On The Turning Away and the Pink Floyd Live In Venice TV broadcast. She also performed The Great Gig in the Sky with Pink Floyd, a song she will now perform with TAPFS. Colin Norfield is also aboard as sound engineer. He was FOH engineer on Pink Floyds final world tour and has since handled live sound for David Gilmour. The Australian Pink Floyd Show is constantly evolving and honing what they do, having enjoyed 25 years at the top of the game. The show boasts a round screen with intelligent lights arranged around its perimeter. During a concert, movies and animations are displayed onscreen, complementing the bands light show. Inflatables such as the pig used by Pink Floyd during the Division Bell Tour are frequently employed in the bands shows. The band formed in Adelaide, Australia, in 1988. The Australian Pink Floyd Show consists of Steve Mac, Jason Sawford, Colin Wilson, Dave Fowler, Alex McNamara, Paul Bonney, Mike Kidson, Lorelei McBroom, Lara Smiles and Emily Lynn. For those not completely convinced about the tribute bands quality, both Gilmour and Mason have bestowed praise upon them. TAPFS was personally asked by Gilmour to play at his private 50th birthday party; and mason recently told BBC Radio in an interview that the Australian Pink Floyd were probably better than us.Photos courtesy of FLIPSWITCH PRAbove right, The Australian Pink Floyd Show brings its Set the Controls Tour to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Oct. 8. Above, left, the band performs The Trial from the bands 1979 album The Wall. International Chorale seeks tenors, bassesDUNEDIN The International Chorale of Dunedin meets Mondays, 7 p.m., at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, 705 Michigan Blvd. The group specializes in all types of music including songs from around the world. Performances are given at churches, mobile home communities, clubs and activity centers. Members travel and sing aboard ships and at churches at their destinations. The group plans to travel to the British Isles in July 2015. Currently, the group is in need of tenors and basses who can travel.

Filling the entire main gallery of the St. Petersburg Museum of History, Imagining La Florida offers a new prospective on the rich, yet forgotten history of Florida and how the Sunshine State not Virginia or Massachusetts was the birthplace of our nation. This interactive exhibit tells of Ponces arrival and those Spaniards who came after him, and how the complex interactions of Europeans, Africans and Indians shaped the development of modern Florida. Attendees will have an opportunity to walk through a Spanish galleon and listen to the conquistadors as they prepare for their voyages and bathe in the Fountain of Youth. On loan from the Spanish Crown, the highly sought-after exhibit was curated by USF St. Petersburg History Professor J. Michael Francis, one of the nations leading experts on the Spanish colonial experience in Florida. Francis is the Hough family endowed chair in Florida studies. Stories, artifacts and hands-on activities take attendees from Seville, Spain to the sun-drenched sandy shores of Florida including Tampa Bays history of Spanish exploration. La Florida examines the role of Africans in early Florida, including Fort Mose the first free black community in what would become the United States. The many stories told of Floridas Indians include the female ruler of Nombre de Dios, Dona Maria. Dona Maria was an important Spanish ally and one of the most powerful Indian chiefs in Florida. The exhibit ends with the Fountain of Youth a myth that provided St. Petersburg with its very first tourist attraction. La Florida is an eye-opener for those of us who learned the British version of colonial America, said museum executive director Rui Farias. Artist donates collection to FHMST.

Murray Zimiles is a distinguished artist, well-known for artwork that focuses on the Holocaust, and is widely featured in exhibitions and collections across the United States and around the world. More than 120 pieces of Zimiles work, including drawings, paintings, lithographs and mixed media have been donated to the museums permanent collection, many of which will be on display in the exhibition. Knowing that 10 years of my lifes work is going into good hands is the most important and exciting thing I could hope for, said Zimiles. Creating much of his work in the mid-1980s, Zimiles found interest in the Holocaust after reading a book about the destruction of Polands magnificent wooden synagogues. His large lithographic books, The Book of Fire and To Die with Honor, use eyewitness accounts to touch on the destruction of Eastern European Jewish life, culture and sacred architecture as well as the doomed last stand of the Warsaw Ghetto. These works have been acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the New York Public Library and the Jewish Museum (New York) among others. Out and about
