Willie Cunningham, 23, a Clearwater transient, was arrested and charged with two counts of armed robbery in connection with robberies that occurred Oct. 4. The rst robbery was at the Citgo gas station, 1701 West Bay Drive, and the second at a Chevron gas station, 790 East Bay Drive. Cunningham is being held in the county jail on bail of $100,000. Largo Police and the Pinellas County Sheriffs Of ce had been looking for Cunningham as a person of interest in a By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Through October, Largo Fire Rescue fielded more than 22,000 EMS calls and 3,000 fire calls, had about 15 vacancies and experienced more than 3,500 hours of overtime. So, the night of Dec. 5 mustve been a relief for Chief Shelby Willis when she introduced 11 new members to LFRs ranks during a City Commission meeting at City Hall. And, as Willis explained, those new re ghters, EMTs and paramedics are far more than just rst responders. The new crop has a variety of backgrounds and accomplishments, including a USA Olympic weightlifter and powerlifter, a drummer, two veterans, a former college football player and high school football player, one mother, three fathers and two sons of longtime LFR members.Heres a quick look at their backgrounds:Firefighter/EMT Tyler Kelley of Lakeland: His father is Lt. Joe Kelley, who has been with LFR for more than 25 years.

Every donor will receive an original 1897 brick from the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Longtime Largo resident George Feaster hopes a pair of donations will tap into the generous spirit of his fellow citizens this holiday season and inspire them to join his efforts to improve the city and its services. Feaster thinks one of those improvements, a campaign to bring a new bookmobile to the Largo Public Library, is a worthy cause, so the longtime funeral home owner donated $5,000 this past weekend. Most bookmobiles you think about go to schools and this one will be able to go to mobile home parks and places like that where people dont have access to the library, said Feaster, who was co-chairman of the capital campaign for the library when it opened in 2005. I think it will be a great thing. Largo Public Library Director Casey McPhee said the involvement of people like Feaster is the reason the campaign has raised about $315,000 of its $600,000 goal, which would pay for the bookmobile and operational expenses for ve years. (Feaster) certainly is a go-to person for us when it comes to fundraising and were so appreciative that he thought of us and wants to be involved, she said. And he wants people to get thinking about donating, which is wonderful. Hes a big community mover and shaker and he gets people interested in a cause. Out for a Out for a Photos by JIM LAYFIELDResidents from all over Pinellas County enjoyed the more than 1 million LED lights at the Holiday Stroll in Largo Central Park on Dec. 2. The theme for the rst night of the two-day event was Rockin Lights Family Night, which featured chalk artists, a holiday craft fair, live entertainment, special guest Santa and the highlight of the night, the lighting of the holiday tree. The next Holiday Stroll event will be Dec. 16 for a night titled Let It Snow, where lighted motorcycles will arrive about 7:45 p.m. A holiday craft fair, live music and Santa also will return.Above, Connor Bare, 6, of Largo is transformed into a pirate at the face-painting booth.

Feaster said his brother, who died just three days after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, was an avid supporter of Largos re and police departments, so he felt it was apropos to donate the artwork in his memory. Our community has one of the best police and re departments in the state of Florida, Feaster said. Theyve been good to our population. Theyve supported us.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 2004 Jaguar driven by Harry Paris, 78, was traveling northbound on U.S. 19 south of Curlew Road just before the crash occurred. Charles E. Prugh, 63, of Clearwater was driving a 2007 Ford (United Taxi) southbound on U.S. 19. FHP says when Paris attempted to turn left into the driveway of Doral Village, 29250 U.S. 19, his Jaguar traveled into the path of the Ford, which collided with the passenger side of the Jaguar, injuring both occupants. Paris was transported to Mease Countryside Hospital where he later died. His passenger, Patricia Paris, 79, died at the scene. Prugh was transported to Bayfront Hospital with serious injuries.

Juan Paulino-Cantero, 36, is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $650,000 bail. His address is listed as a transient from Largo. He was arrested in Mexico on March 16, and extradited to Pinellas County Dec. 1. Detectives began investigating the crime on Dec. 16, 2015 after the then 13-year-old female told an adult about the inappropriate sexual activity that had occurred at a residence in Clearwater. Detectives say that Paulino-Cantero, who is known to the victim, gave the victim money and told her not to tell anyone about the incident. While conducting the investigation, detectives learned that PaulinoCantero had ed to Mexico. Detectives contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and with their assistance, Paulino-Cantero was arrested in Mexico. According to a media release from the sheriffs office, detectives attempted to interview Paulino-Cantero about 7 p.m. Dec. 1 at the Sheriffs Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo, but the suspect refused to speak with detectives.

About 10:20 a.m., school of cials decided to evacuate the high school, 1300 Silver Eagle Drive, and middle school, 1200 Silver Eagle Drive, as a precautionary measure while an investigation was conducted. While deputies searched both schools, students were escorted off campus by school of cials. East Lake Fire Rescue personnel responded to assist and provided water to the students while they waited.

Police 7A Leader, December 7, 2017Man who shot himself with stolen gun arrestedPinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a St. Petersburg Man on Nov. 29 after he ed from a traf c stop and accidentally shot himself with a stolen gun.

8A County Leader, December 7, 2017 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners chose to defer a Nov. 28 public hearing on the Property Assessed Clean Energy Program until the last regularly scheduled meeting of the year. The Commission is expected to consider the matter at its Dec. 12 meeting. The public hearing portion of the meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the fth oor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., Clearwater. Vice-Chair Ken Welch, acting as chair Nov. 28 as Chair Janet Long was absent, recommended postponing the hearing due to new information that had been submitted by members of the PACE industry. In addition, two commissioners were absent, Long and Karen Seel. Commissioner Charlie Justice suggested that commissioners consider the commercial side of the program only since the new information pertained to the residential part. He was unsure that issues with the residential program could be resolved before Dec. 12. Commissioners have been talking about PACE since 2011. In 2013, the commission agreed to negotiate with a single provider for a commercial-only program. However, in May 2016, the commission terminated negotiations and rejected all proposals due to a growing number of concerns. In May of this year, commissioners scheduled a work session to discuss PACE again. Staff outlined a number of bene ts of a countywide ordinance during a May 18 workshop, such as providing minimum standards and limitations for a PACE program, the ability to modify the program through an amendment, as well as providing for consumer protections. Municipalities that didnt want to implement the program would be able to opt-out. Staff recommended starting with a commercial-only program, but commissioners preferred including residential too. PACE providers say the most popular use of PACE financing is for wind mitigation, which can save on insurance costs by making improvements to roofs, windows, doors and garage doors. Air conditioning systems are the second most popular improvement. The PACE program provides help for commercial and residential property owners in need of financing for wind resistance, energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements. The nancing is done through a special assessment, which becomes part of the property tax bill. PACE liens receive priority over mortgage payments, which is a problem for some mortgage lenders, including two government loan programs, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Local Realtors oppose the program. Commissioners considered the PACE program again during an Aug. 15 meeting and were unable to resolve differences between what the county would like and what PACE providers considered doable. The commission directed staff to meet with all the stakeholders to address the issues. The commission wanted an ordinance that would provide for a countywide program, which would allow municipalities to opt out. The program would serve residential and non-residential properties. It would provide consumer protections similar to those for mortgages and no prepayment penalties would be allowed for residential assessments. Staff invited participants from all PACE providers in the state and others interested in the ordinance to attend a PACE Stakeholder Forum on Oct. 4, which was attended by 13, not including county staff. As a result of that meeting, staff removed references to the Truth in Lending Act from the ordinance. PACE providers say TILA does not apply to them. Staff also removed restrictions on prepayment penalties for non-residential assessments. In addition, the proposed ordinance was modified to make online monitory mandatory for solar systems, unless the owner rejected in writing. Financial requirements would be tied to Fair Market Value rather than property appraisers Just Value. Eligible measures could be set for third party experts, and reporting requirements were reduced.Zoning and land use changesIn other business during the public hearing segment of the meeting, the commission unanimously approved two zoning and land use changes. Commissioners said yes to a request from Mikes Haines Road Holdings LLC and Dale Mastry LLC for a zone change from R-4, one, two and three family residential, to C-2, general retail commercial and limited services on 0.31 acre, and a land use change from residential low medium to commercial general on ve parcels totaling 0.61 acre located near the southwest corner of 54th Avenue North and Haines Road North in Lealman. Existing structures on the parcels include two single-family homes, a duplex and a tavern. The owner wants to combine these ve parcels with two additional parcels to the east for redevelopment of retail commercial. The second request approved was from Clay & Pam LLC from a land use change from residential medium to employment and a zoning change from one, two and three family residential to M-1CO, light manufacturing and industry-conditional overlay on 0.8 acre located 135 feet north of the northeast corner of the Florida Avenue and Ninth Street intersection in Palm Harbor. According to a report from the Local Planning Agency, the area is a portion of a larger 2-acre parcel that extends to the north and east. The applicants also own the property to the north, which contains an auto collision repair business. The area under consideration for an amendment has been used for vehicle storage and as a staging area for the auto repair facility; however, it is not allowed by the existing R-4 zoning district. The requested M-1-CO district would permit such uses, which the applicants wish to continue. The conditional overlay limits the use of the site to the storage and processing of vehicles for repair and restoration or disposal after collisions, the storage of inventory and materials necessary for repair or restoration. It also allows storage for vehicles utilized for law enforcement purposes, for vehicles removed from properties under contract, from vehicles removed from roadways after collision, restoration and outdoor storage of customer vehicles, trailers and vessels of all types and classes towed onto or delivered to the property for public/governmental purposes and private parties. County Planning Department staff recommended two additional conditions, no vehicle stacking and no storage of RVs or boats, to which the applicant agreed. Lastly, the commission unanimously approved an amendment to code governing Human Relations and membership on the County Council for Persons with Disabilities to prevent possible violations of the Sunshine Law.Countywide Planning AuthoritySitting as the Countywide Planning Authority, commissioners unanimously approved three Countywide Plan Map amendments during the public hearing segment. The first amended 1.75 acres at 10476 131st St. N. in unincorporated Largo from residential low medium to public/ semi-public. The property is currently being used as an assisted living facility. The owner wants to expand from 24 beds to 65 beds. The second amendment was for 0.45 acre on the east side of Keystone Road about 160 feet southwest of Meyer Lane in Tarpon Springs from residential low medium and residential medium to of ce. The property is currently vacant. The proposed use is for an of ce with access off the adjacent property. The third approval amended 0.74 acre at 1255 Belcher Road in unincorporated Clearwater from of ce to retail and services. The property is the site of a former bank and has an existing building being used as an insurance of ce. The proposed use is for a car wash. Welch expressed concern about the hours the business could operate, especially if the owner sells the business. Suzette Porter is TBNs Pinellas County editor.

County 9A Leader, December 7, 2017 County BriefsPinellas completes collection of debrisCLEARWATER Pinellas County Public Works has completed a nal pass to pick up debris left behind by Hurricane Irma across all unincorporated areas, with a total of more than 375,000 cubic yards. The large debris piles collected at various sites around the county will now be transported outside the county for nal disposal. County officials continue to see non-storm debris being placed within the public right-of-way and illegal dumping occurring in some locations. Non-storm debris will not be picked up by county contractors. Residents are asked to work with their private garbage haulers to remove the non-storm debris or dispose of it themselves. It is a third-degree felony for anyone to dump on the right-of-way or vacant lots instead of taking debris to a yard waste facility. If citizens see hired companies or individuals dumping debris in their neighborhood, or the dumping of other unauthorized waste, they are asked to email details (with photos if possible) to watershed@pinellascounty.org. There are currently over 50 enforcement cases underway. If citizens in unincorporated county still have storm-related debris that has not been collected, they can contact Public Works by emailing stormdebris@pinellascounty.org. As a reminder, storm debris includes vegetation as well as construction and demolition debris, such as damaged fencing, and must be related to Hurricane Irma. Rep. Latvala to host town hall meetingCLEARWATER Rep. Chris Latvala, R-Clearwater, is hosting a pre-session town hall meeting Tuesday, Dec. 12, 6-8 p.m., at St. Petersburg College Room ES 104 on the Clearwater campus, 2465 Drew St. For more information, call 727-724-3000 or email Janine.kiray@my oridahouse.gov.

Pinellas County Tax Collector Charles W. Thomas recently announced that all office locations will partner with the following nonpro t organizations in 2018 to promote their causes: Donate Life Florida Florida Breast Cancer Foundation Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute Laurens Kids Pinellas Education Foundation Preserve Vision Florida Nonprofits were selected through an application process with an emphasis on each organizations mission and local impact. All bene t from specialty license plate sales and Organ Donor license designations. Nonpro ts will work directly with the Tax Collectors Of ce to promote their cause and may offer incentives to the public for purchasing their specialty plates. In addition, the Tax Collectors Office spearheads Kids Tag Art Pinellas, where fifth grade students at Pinellas County schools design original front license plates. Now in its third year, Kids Tag Art Pinellas has raised $100,000 for school art programs and a Fine Arts scholarship fund at St. Petersburg College. Plates can be purchased for $15 at www.kidstagartpinellas.org. The Tax Collectors Of ce also encourages charitable giving through its Jeans Because We Care program. On select Fridays, employees donate $3 to dress down in blue jeans. The money collected throughout 2017 will be donated to John Hopkins All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg. By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners began their Nov. 28 meeting with a moment of silence in remembrance of an employee who died on the job the day before. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies responded to McKay Creek in Taylor Park just north of 134th Avenue North between Adams Circle and 121st Street in unincorporated Largo about 11: 56 a.m. Nov. 27 after receiving a report of a deceased person. Largo Fire Rescue pronounced 63-year-old Rafael Lorenzo Ufret Ortiz of St. Petersburg dead about 12:14 p.m. Ortiz was a Senior Spray Technician, who had been employed by Pinellas County Mosquito Control since July 2002. Detectives with the sheriffs Robbery/Homicide Unit say Ortiz was conducting tests of the water along McKay Creek for Mosquito Control. He was last seen heading to his assigned area about 7:30 a.m. About 11:44 a.m., a park ranger was notified that a county truck appeared to be stuck on the easement and the front driver door was open. The park ranger and another employee drove to the area and found Ortiz face down in the creek. Detectives say the cause of death is unknown but does not appear suspicious in nature. Rafael was an exemplary person and an outstanding employee. The Pinellas County family is mourning today, said Public Works Director Rajim Harji in a press release Nov. 27. Rafael was a good man, good father and good husband, County Administrator Mark Woodard said during the Nov. 28 meeting. He said his fellow employees commented that Ortiz was quick with a smile and proud of what he did as a county employee. Woodard said the county was mourning the loss and expressed his condolences to the family. He said everyone at the county was doing what he or she could to support the family. Ortiz was born July 7, 1954, in San German, Puerto Rico. He was the son of the late Francisco Ufret Seda and Cleofe Rodriguez Ortiz. Pastor Dawn Haeger of Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church in Clearwater took a moment to express her condolences and talk about Ortiz before delivering the invocation at the Nov. 28 meeting. She said his friends had told her that he was an exemplary employee and more importantly an exemplary human being. She said he had considered retiring, but loved his job so much he did not do so. He enjoyed time at home with his family where he loved to cook, listen to music and sharing stories with friends. He is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart, Mirian Rios Henriquez and their son, Rafael L. Ufret Rios, as well as many brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.

Rafael Lorenzo Ufret Ortiz was pronounced dead at the scene. By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County Administrator Mark Woodard had some unwelcome news as part of his report at the County Commissions Nov. 28 meeting. Two top employees Utilities Director Randi Kim and Assistant County Administrator John Bennett have submitted their resignations. Woodard said when Kim took the leadership role for Utilities in April 2016, she had planned for it to be her forever job. She has since changed her mind and taken a position as Utilities director at Grand Junction, Colorado. Kim is a licensed professional engineer with a degree in chemical engineering with a specialization in environmental engineering. Kim came to Pinellas from Hillsborough County where she served two years as division director of Technical Services for the Utilities Department. Before that, she worked 24 years for CDM Smith, an engineering and construction firm that provides integrated solutions in water, environment, transportation, energy and facilities for public and private clients. Woodard praised the work Kim has done to improve the countys aging infrastructure and her valuable input on the Wastewater/ Stormwater Task Force. The task force formed in October 2016 in response to the millions of gallons of sewage that spilled into waterways around the county due to torrential rainfall that ooded the system from Hurricane Hermine Aug. 31-Sept. 2, 2016. Bennett came to the county in July 2015, a time when relations with many of integral partners, including first responders and health care providers, were at a boiling point. John Bennett is Mr. with partners we can do more, Woodard, adding that Bennett is the personi cation of that theme. He said Bennett had not only repaired damaged relationships, he had also built newer stronger ones. Bennett served on the Tampa police force for 30 years, retiring as assistant chief of police in February of 2015. Woodard said he has chosen to return to this true calling of law enforcement. Bennett has a bachelors degree in criminology and a masters in homeland security and defense. He also is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. Hes out to make the world a safer place for all, Woodard said. Before Woodards announcement, Thomas Jamison, chief of the East Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District, preempted the county administrator when he thanked Bennett for all he had done earlier in the meeting. It was a pleasure to work with you, he said. Were sad to see you go. Commissioner Ken Welch joked at the time, saying were working on an ordinance to keep Bennett here. Commissioners had nothing but praise for Kim and Bennett and wished them well. One of the goals you have when you join an organization is to leave it better than when you arrived, said Commissioner Charlie Justice, adding that both Kim and Bennett had done that.Windsor School purchaseWoodard also updated the commission on the latest information regarding the purchase of the former Windsor School in the Lealman Community Redevelopment Area. He said staff had negotiated a price of $11 million. The seller had asked for $13 million. Woodard said two appraisals had been done with one valuing the property at $9.5 million and the other at $10 million. He said although the negotiated price was higher than the highest appraisal, he felt comfortable with the price. The next step is to complete the due diligence on the site, which needs to be completed by Dec. 12, and barring any adverse ndings or objections from the commission, he would likely go ahead and execute the contract. The purchase will be funded in part by state grants. One for $2 million was awarded by the legislature last year and there is a request for a second $2 million grant before state lawmakers this year. The remainder of the money will come from Penny for Pinellas. Justice called the purchase a game changer for the residents of Lealman. I want this property very badly, he said. These folks dont have anything like this close to them. Suzette Porter is TBNs Pinellas County editor.

At left, Santa and his elf plug in the lights.A Winter Wonderland in Clearwater By BOB McCLURETampa Bay NewspapersST. PETE BEACH City leaders put the finishing touches on an ordinance Nov. 28 that makes it easier for food trucks to operate in ve areas. Commissioners voted 3-2 to pass the measure. Melinda Pletcher and Ward Friszolowski voted against it. Mobile vending businesses are banned from operating in the city unless in conjunction with a special event permit. However, the new ordinance allows food trucks to operate on private property in five character districts with a conditional use permit that is renewable on an annual basis with a valid business tax receipt. Food trucks will be allowed to operate three days per week, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., on an improved surface at least five feet off the public right-of-way. The businesses will be exempt from the citys sign regulations but no A-frame signs will be allowed. The areas where food trucks can now operate are the CC-1 Commercial Corridor Blind Pass District, CC-2 Commercial Corridor Gulf Boulevard District, Coquina West District, TC-1 Town Center Core District and the TC-2 Town Center Corey Circle District. The zones cover an area from 58th Avenue north to 80th Way off Gulf Boulevard and Blind Pass Road, and Sunset Way east to Corey Circle between 76th and 73rd avenues. Pletcher said the conditional use permit would only be procedural and the city would have a dif cult time turning down an applicant. Even though its conditional use, you need to have a valid reason to say no, said Pletcher. Its just a little bit of a review process before they can open their doors. City Manager Wayne Saunders explained that the benefit of requiring a CUP is that the city can put conditions on food truck operators. I think this is something our city has not utilized as well as it should in the past on a lot of conditional uses, said Saunders. You can look at each one of these and set specific conditions on that permit with regard to almost anything. Friszolowski asked if, in terms of aesthetics, the city put limitations on applicants and Saunders said yes. Its a food truck. What kind of aesthetics do you want? asked Commissioner Terri Finnerty. Theyre beautiful. Theyre like works of art. If, for some reason, commissioners feel like the ordinance needs to be revised, Saunders said any changes would be re ected when applicants renew their annual permit. Each permit request will be handled on a caseby-case basis. By WAYNE AYERSTBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH The city commission has hired Ralf Brookes as city attorney. The action came at a special budget meeting held after the commission workshop on Nov. 28. Brookes selection came with little surprise. He was one of only two applicants, following the withdrawal of Acting City Attorney Erica Augello. Augello had said she would be leaving at the end of the year. The other remaining candidate, Regina Kardash, told the commission they would have to change their meeting date if she was chosen, as she has another commitment on the night of the commissions regular meeting. Her fees were also higher than Brookes, although she did offer to make some adjustments. Brookes is the town attorney for Yankeetown, Florida, which he covers mainly by email. He also told the commission he goes back and forth to the town. Brookes, who has residences in Cape Coral and Longboat Key, told the commission the distance from Madeira Beach would not be a problem. He said he can be available on demand, by phone or in person when you need me. The commission voted 3 to 1 to hire Brookes at the special meeting. Commissioner Nancy Hodges voted no and Commissioner Terry Lister was absent. Brookes will become the city attorney at the Dec. 12 commission meeting. Filling the city attorney position has been viewed as especially critical in Madeira Beach, where numerous legal issues have confronted the city in recent months. Mayor calls for commissioners to quitIn a surprise announcement, Mayor Maggi Black has called for Commissioners Hodges and Lister to resign. Black said the two were found to have violated the Sunshine Law in the appointment of Commissioner Housh Ghovaee. Both of them have a Sunshine Law violation against them, Black said. She then read a portion of the city code that says any commissioner shall forfeit their of ce if they violate the city charter. Black began the discussion by saying Hodges and Lister had signed the petitions seeking to recall Commissioners John Douthirt and Nancy Oakley. She said the recall petition states Douthirt and Oakley violated the city charter by hiring a budget director, when only the city manager has that authority. What the petition does not state, Black said, is that the city attorney advised the commission it is our duty to hire a budget not a nance director to keep our city moving. We followed the attorneys advice, Black said. Black made her statement calling for Hodges and Lister to resign at the beginning of a 6 p.m. special meeting after the 2 p.m. commission workshop. Lister was at the workshop but not the special meeting. Bonus pay considered for Fire Chief ONealThe commission will consider a request by Fire Chief Derryl ONeal to get extra compensation for time he spent as acting city manager after the departure of City Manager Shane Crawford in May. During that time, ONeal said, he received his fire chief pay but nothing additional. He is still serving in the role of interim city manager. As you know, for about the past seven months Ive been acting as your city manager without any type of compensation or appreciation in some cases and Ive appreciated the opportunity to be here, said ONeal. He went on to cite two reasons for requesting additional pay. First, he said, It deserves to be compensated, and secondly, he pointed out that this would give some impetus for the commission to move forward in getting a new city manager. Finance Director Walter Pierce recommended ONeal be paid a onetime bonus of around $15,000 for the past, plus have his salary bumped up from his $97,000 fire chief pay to $125,000, beginning with the November commission meeting and lasting until a permanent city manager is hired. ONeal mentioned the extra pay is still about $75,000 less than what the previous city manager was making.St. Pete Beach nalizes rules for food trucksMadeira commission selects city attorney CHURCHANDTEMPLEDIRECTORY Tell the Pub lic a b out Your S ervices call 727-397-5563LL Getting Married?

Viewpoints 11A Leader, December 7, 2017Ban dog racingEditor: A racing greyhound dies every three days at a Florida dog track. The unfortunate truth is that thousands of dogs are injured and die or are killed in the training process and are forced to endure intensive con nement when off the track. Fortunately, state Sen. Tom Lee has led a measure to end greyhound racing in our state. The proposed amendment to the Florida constitution would phase out commercial dog racing over three years, and eventually end the state mandate for greyhound racing. If the Amendment is approved by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission, it will appear on the 2018 ballot for our vote. A 60 percent yes vote would be needed to approve the amendment. Greyhound racing is a dying industry, and 40 states already ban live greyhound racing. People no longer see the entertainment value in subjecting dogs to run for their lives and this amendment should be approved. Jaimee Parry Tarpon SpringsYou payEditor: The businesses that would reap the bounty of the impact the proposed dredging of the Anclote River would have on the estimated $252 million in revenue from marineand tourism related commerce in Tarpon Springs should probably be footing the $676,046 that is being requested for the dredging project. If each of the 150 marine and tourism businesses kicked in, the amount each would pay would be $4,506. If it isnt worth $4,500 to each business to reap $252 million in economic benefit, then why should taxpayers pay for it? Our country, state and county are all buried in debt that will take multiple generations to pay off, even if we stopped overspending today. Yet there still seems to be an expectation that taxpayers should whip out the credit card to pay a $676,000 bill for a bunch of businesses that appear to be pro ting handsomely. This mindset needs to change. Stop begging taxpayers to subsidize the Anclote River dredge project. Let the businesses bene tting from the project gure out how to split the bill amongst themselves. Steven Murray Palm HarborGetting old isnt what it used to beEditor: Years ago, it used to be said that you were getting old when the policemen looked young and especially when they referred to you as Sir or Maam. Being one of many who are at the start of the Baby Boomer era, we are refusing to accept our age, with phrases like is the new 30, or even is the new 40. No cardigans or slippers warming by the re for us. I particularly like the phrase growing old disgracefully to describe how we act. I remember at my reunions with my school friends, in our 30s we de ned getting old as when we walked straight past a music store and into a do-it-yourself or hardware store. Now its walking past the hardware store and into a pharmacy! If I may digress for a moment onto a personal story I went on one of my very infrequent trips to my doctors, to get some sleeping tablets for the plane for one of my long-haul trips from Australia to the U.S. After checking my blood pressure, the physician said, I havent seen you for a while and I see in that time you have passed 55, so I had better check your prostate, and my eyes widened when he started purposely pulling on a rubber glove! When I got home I said to my wife, Youll never guess what happened to me just in order to get some sleeping tablets! Digression over, so what are our de nitions of aging? I have collected some I really like, but I encourage you to share yours (if you can remember them!) with your family and friends. I think that you are getting old when: Your back goes out more often that you do You have to lean against the wall to put on your underwear Your teeth and you no longer sleep together You have a party and the people next door dont even notice You know the layout of all the medicines at your local pharmacy (for the ladies) You look at shoes and think Theyll be comfy You ask your kids to program your smart TV or DVD player You look for buy-one-get-one-free spectacles, because you know that you will certainly lose one pair You start liking karaoke The older you get, the earlier it gets late Your garden shed is just not big enough You start looking for matching pairs of gardening gloves and kneeling pads You know the Latin names of all the plants in your garden The only heavy breathing you hear nowadays is when you climb the stairs and nally you realize that in a hostage situation, you would be the rst one released! Andy Rooney encapsulated what every aging Baby Boomer believes and that is that life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer it gets to the end the faster it goes. However, I think that the last word should go to Woody Allen, who said, its not that I am afraid to die, I just dont want to be there when it happens. Continue to have fun growing old disgracefully! Nigel Thomas Largo, Florida, and Perth, AustraliaMadeira Beach recall thisEditor: Disrespect for one another, disruption at meetings, harassment of elected of cials, impugning of residents, unsolicited photographing of residents all this seems to be the norm for the Madeira Beach political scene. This behavior is what we should be recalling. A valid election in March produced the peoples choice for better stewards of city assets, for more integrity of character and for transparency. These candidates turned out to be a retired corporate manager, a former city commissioner and a retired military veteran. There is no nancial or personal agenda for these very respected, experienced, retired citizens. Their goal, their civic duty take the city back, reign in spending, stop the pet projects and remove the favoritism displayed by the ousted group that the voters rejected. However, the political split is deep. A group of antagonists have formed a recall committee citing several reasons. One recall supporter states as a reason, theyre not for the tall building developments. Truthfully, anti-development is not a viable argument. We should recall that the former city manager and mayor worked in concert with the developers, cozy and close, to give us these developments, erring in the process all along. Recall the turmoil this created. In contrast, this commission is working to solve the problems the development projects have created. The new commissioners have been in mediation with the developers and it is proving fruitful. There are serious discrepancies in the citys agreement with the developers, and they are being reviewed. These projects can move forward, but with corrections and changes. This commission has done everything according to the city charter. They have upheld their oaths of of ce. Recall that they have been guided by the city attorney, whose rm has been in place in our city for several years, interpreting the charter and rules for the city. As residents, we should recall that Madeira Beach suffers from chronic political unrest. Why have we not been able to alter the decades of political division that has eroded our peace? It is embarrassing. If it is possible to lower the temperature of the hot heads and drain the ood of insanity, maybe we can recall that we are all neighbors and citizens of this beach town, our home. Gerri Gallo Madeira BeachMillions were stunned Wednesday morning when the Today show led with the news that NBC fired host Matt Lauer after receiving a detailed complaint about what it called inappropriate sexual behavior from its high-pro le morning anchor. Twitter exploded, the Internet erupted, and President Donald Trump couldnt resist taking a jab at NBC, saying top executives also should be red for putting out so much fake news. This comes while the president apparently now is saying the infamous Access Hollywood tape might be a fake. Thats where he bragged about the advantage he believed his power gave him over women and he apologized for the behavior last year when the story broke during the campaign. The New York Times reported the president now is suggesting that the tape was all some Clintonian plot and that it might not have been his voice that we heard. He said his staff is investigating. I guess it means he made a fake apology last year, unless Hillary somehow created a devious hologram that made it sound like he was admitting to saying bad, bad things. Really bad. But seriously folks, keeping it in the here and now, he has also urged Alabama voters to choose accused pedophile Roy Moore in the upcoming U.S. Senate race because Republicans need his vote to get their political agenda passed. Way to take a stand, sir. So, who is doing the right thing here NBC, or the president? While no one is saying that a morning news anchor packs the same clout as the president, he loss to NBC is immense. Forbes reported that the Today show generated an estimated $435 million for NBC in 2015 and accounts for about half of the networks annual news budget. Lauer was paid handsomely for his role in this, an estimated $25 million per year. He sat in the anchors chair for 20 years and often was the rst face TV viewers saw in the morning. People liked and trusted him. A recent report on closerweekly.com said Lauer was planning to leave when his contract expired in 2018, but, if true, that would have been an exit complete with hype, celebration and blockbuster ratings. Instead, it is in disgrace. NBC has pledged transparency on this story, so I assume we will learn more details soon enough about what Lauer did. It had to be reprehensible and veri able to get him red, but it had to be worse for the person he harassed. It took guts for her to come forward. By now, there should be no need for another lecture about the disgusting ways powerful men use their status to intimidate women. Heaven knows weve had enough examples lately. This story, though, is more about how a major corporation or the American people decide how they will handle these stories going forward. NBC likely will take a major nancial hit with Lauers departure. Viewers will feel betrayed. There will be much work to do to regain the kind of trust the audience gave to Lauer. The rst step toward that already has been taken, though. NBC didnt equivocate once executives believed they had all the facts. They acted swiftly and will take whatever is coming their way from the public. Thats how it should be. The Today show will continue to come on the air, promptly at 7 a.m. Reporters will continue to cover the major stories from Matt Lauer, to Roy Moore, o President Trump. This is what real news outlets do, even when the dirty laundry is their own. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. A hundred years ago, one of historys most important events occurred: the Russian Revolution. Youd think someone on your block or at city hall would hold a celebration lled with vodka-fueled toasts and singing. But I havent heard of one. Lets explore some of the reasons why. Possibly its because Russia and its government are not very popular these days. Rumors abound that Russians tried to in uence the results of our 2016 presidential election. They allegedly favored the Republican candidate and spread ugly gossip about his opponent. This has led to accusations of GOP-Russian collusion. This is a legal term, sometimes mistaken as a form of collision or contusion. But how can you have a decent Russian party without Russians? And how long has it been since you met a Russian, or someone who spoke uent Russian? Years ago, I visited the Congressional Library with a woman (Ill call her Alicia) who had studied Russian and spoke it well. We were standing in line, and she overheard Russian being spoken by the couple just in front of us. Alicia a friendly soul said to them Do you come here often? in Russian. Her unexpected question almost scared the bryuki (Russian for pants or underwear) off them. I guess they thought the Soviet secret police agency, the NKVD, might be after them. Another reason Americans arent remembering the Russian Revolution is that it was so complicated unlike the American Revolution, which had a much simpler beginning. In the 1770s the English king was a nut case who unfairly taxed American colonists. So, we tossed his tea into Boston Harbor and then assaulted the kings soldiers, who wore bright red coats just begging to be shot at. From that point, things were fairly predictable: Brave Yankees vs. British swine. But the Russian Revolution was too complex for most of us simple-minded clods to understand. In fact, at your next cocktail party, if some Russian history expert corners you, fake an attack of shingles and make your escape. Better yet, ask the expert to explain in 50 wor ds or less the precise differences between a Menshevik and a Bolshevik. That should shut him up. A brief and over-simpli ed version of the Russian Revolution might go this way: For centuries the ordinary people (serfs) had been governed by aristocrats and plutocrats who believed that God had appointed them to of ce. Finally, the serfs got fed up and shouted, This is a load of osadok! (You can look up meanings of that word on Google). An initial rebellion took place in February 1917, and a second one in November. By 1922 the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, consisting of Russia and 14 other states, was formed. Years of political rivalries followed. Joseph Stalin came out on top. He secured his victory by starving millions of his fellow Soviet citizens. The ones who survived were used to defeat Nazi invaders. By 1945 the Soviets controlled most of eastern Europe. But in 1991 the Soviet dream collapsed, for ve or six reasons I will spare you from reading. Today, as you know, Russias president is Vladimir Putin, a former Soviet spy who has retained his professional skills during his climb to the top. He is intelligent and crafty enough to have achieved disturbing friendships with at least one or two other world leaders you may have heard about. Putins control of Russia is great but not absolute. A recent column by Marvin Kalb in Time magazine said that Putins one great fear is the Russian people. And the possibility that one day they may overthrow him. Such events have occurred many times in many lands. No nation, including our own, is exempt from the uprisings of nally-out-of-patience citizens. A saying increasingly heard today is Better to live in hope than to die in despair. Or words to that effect. A nal thought: In the old days, when you ran out of insults for an enemy, you could always call him A no-good Commie rat. No more. Most of the Communists have faded away. A worthy successor insult has not appeared. Unless its mudak. Thats another Russian word you may want to Google. Bob Drivers email address is tralee71@com cast.net.

12A Outdoors Leader, December 7, 2017Its probably safe to say that we wont see a weekend like the last one for a while. The long-range forecast shows a couple of cold fronts on their way, so it looks like we will be feeling the Arctic air by this weekend. What does it mean for the shing? Not good unfortunately. Options will be limited and if the wind is really blowing it could be a total shutdown. Looking back at last week, we had no wind but sunny skies and strong tides. All things that help to make excellent shing. Offshore anglers have been catching everything from kingfish to red grouper. While inshore the trout bite has certainly turned on and will remain a good option for the next couple of months. Bottom fishing can be tricky on the full moon. However, most people Ive talked to had good reports for red grouper, mangrove and lane snapper and hogfish. If youre after red grouper, depths of 100 to 110 feet have been producing very well. Frozen sardines and whole squid will work fine for the grouper, but having a few dozen pin sh and or grass grunts will tempt the larger fish into biting. Hogfish are on most peoples radar by now as December is traditionally a great time to sh for them. Depths of 40 to 55 feet have been full of hogfish. Knocker rig shing with a 2-ounce egg sinker and a fresh shrimp is all you need for them. Look for hard bottom spots with a good variety of sh, not just grunts, and you should be able to catch a few. Spotted sea trout thrive in cooler water. The spoil islands north of Dunedin Causeway are no secret in the shing community. All the islands hold schools of trout this time of year. Anglers can choose to bounce soft-plastic jigs or free-line select shrimp or sardines for the large trout. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a sh photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.Cold weather that could impede shing is coming our way Fish TalesCapt.

The daily bag limit on ducks is six, but you need to know your ducks before heading afield because there are different daily limits for each species, the FWC said. For instance, within the sixbird limit there can be only one pintail, one mottled duck and one fulvous whistling-duck. Only two of your six-bird limit can be canvasbacks, black ducks, scaup or redheads; and three may be wood ducks. And you may have no more than four scoters, four eiders, four long-tailed ducks and four mallards (of which only two can be female) in your bag. All other species of ducks can be taken up to the six-bird limit, except harlequin ducks. It is prohibited to take harlequin ducks. The daily limit on coots is 15, and theres a five-bird limit on mergansers, only two of which may be hooded. Light geese also may be taken during the waterfowl and coot season, including snow, blue and Rosss geese. Theres a 15-bird daily bag limit on any combination of these geese. When hunting ducks, geese or coots, hunters may use only nontoxic shotgun shells. No lead shot can be used or even be in the hunters possession only iron (steel), bismuth-tin and various tungsten alloys are permissible. A Florida hunting license is required for all hunters. Residents pay $17 for the year. Nonresidents have the choice of paying $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. A migratory bird permit, which is free, is also needed. Anyone hunting in one of Floridas many wildlife management areas must purchase a management area permit for $26.50.

14A Business Leader, December 7, 2017Flying Cloud Tea & Gifts to celebrate opening DUNEDIN Flying Cloud Tea & Gifts, a new loose-leaf tea shop at 2194 Main St. in Dunedin, recently opened its doors for a soft opening. Owners Nick and Nicolette Spears will host a grand opening weekend, running Friday through Sunday, Jan. 19-21. Flying Cloud Tea & Gifts gets its name from a famous tea clipper ship from the 1800s as homage to the romance and adventure of teas rich history. Much like the tea clippers once did, Flying Cloud Tea & Gifts carries tea from all around the world. The shop boasts over 130 different loose teas and herbals, which have been passionately procured by the owners. The owners come from Louisville, Kentucky, where they have owned a different tea shop for nearly six years. Co-owner Nicolette Spears brings a wealth of knowledge with over 10 years in the tea industry. Wanting to expand and open a new shop, the two looked to the Tampa Bay area, where they fell in love with the quaint town of Dunedin. The grand opening weekend will include special sales, free samples, demos and refreshments.

This will be the eighth year that PODS is helping the charity with its national toy drives by donating portable storage containers to store donated toys and transport them to distribution centers. By providing logistical support, PODS has played an instrumental role in carrying out the Toys for Tots mission, helping the organization save hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years, which resulted in additional toy purchases for needy children. In 2016 alone, PODS provided nearly $70,000 worth of services to U.S. Marine Corps toy drives across the United States. We are very pleased to welcome PODS back as a major national sponsor of the Marine Toys for Tots campaign, said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Every child deserves a little Christmas and with the generous support we receive from PODS, we will be able to ful ll the Christmas holiday dreams of thousands of more children in need who otherwise might have been forgotten. Since its inception in 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program has distributed more than 494 million toys to 230 million less fortunate children across the United States who might not otherwise have received anything during the holiday season.Jotos Pizza to host car show and swap meetPINELLAS PARK An open car, and truck show will take place on Sunday, Dec. 10, 2 to 5 p.m., at Jotos Pizza, 9119 Belcher Road, Pinellas Park.

Top ve diversions Photo by LEWIS JACOBS/BROAD GREEN PICTURESFrom left, Tommy Lee Jones stars as Leo, Rene Russo as Suzie and Morgan Freeman as Duke in Just Getting Started, a Broad Green Pictures release.Opening this weekendMorgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones & Rene Russo star in Just Getting Started Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPETampa Bay NewspapersDecember is traditionally a slow month at the box of ce as the number of new lms opening dwindles to a handful. The following lm will open in wide release this weekend:Just Getting StartedGenre: Comedy and action Cast: Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Rene Russo, Joe Pantoliano, Glenne Headly, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Elizabeth Ashley, George Wallace, Graham Beckel, Mel Raido and Nick Peine Director: Ron Shelton Rated: PG-13 From Ron Shelton, writer/director of Tin Cup and Bull Durham comes the new comedy Just Getting Started. Morgan Freeman stars as Duke Diver, the freewheeling manager of the Villa Capri, a luxury Palm Springs resort. Diver may have a mysterious past, but hes a pro at making sure that life for the high-spirited residents is one big, nonstop party. But the status quo is challenged when ex-military charmer Leo (Tommy Lee Jones) checks in, triggering a competition between Duke and Leo for the top spot of Alpha male, as well as for the affections of the newly-arrived Suzie (Rene Russo). When Dukes past suddenly catches up with him, the rivals put aside their differences and the two men reluctantly team up to stop whoever is trying to kill Duke, and also save the Villa Capri. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.I, TonyaGenre: Comedy and biography Cast: Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney, Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Bobby Cannavale and McKenna Grace Director: Craig Gillespie Rated: R Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American gure skater Tonya Harding and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the rst American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever de ned by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the ery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespies I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Hardings life and career in all of its unchecked and checkered glory.

Entertainment 3B Leader, December 7, 2017Young Americans InitiativeBeginning in January 2018, American Stage is making live theater free to young people under the age of 20ST. PETERSBURG As American Stage celebrates its 40th anniversary season, the St. Petersburg professional theater company will launch a new initiative focused on the long-term future of the organization by developing the next generation of theater professionals, theater audiences and advocates. As part of the initiation, beginning January 1, 2018, American Stage is making live theater free to young people under the age of 20. As I thought about the American Stages role as an arts leader, I began to think more seriously about our responsibility to this art form and to the community we serve, said Stephanie Gularte in a press release. Gularte is producing artistic director at American Stage. With a quickly evolving cultural landscape, there are some questions that need to be addressed with some urgency: Who will shape the future of the American theater? Who will perform on, design and direct for our stages? Who will market, advance and lead our theaters? And who will ll the seats, champion our programs and engage with our work? These questions led Gularte, along with her leadership team at American Stage, to create an unprecedented initiative committed to developing the future artists, audiences and advocates of professional live theatre in Tampa Bay. The Young Americans Initiative is comprised of three major pillars of forward-looking opportunities, including one pillar which is being considered a bold experiment for the year 2018. The three pillars of the Young American initiative include the following: Pillar 1 The American Stage apprenticeship program. This program is dedicated to building the skills and careers of future theatre artists and arts leaders. This year-long residency provides young people who have recently completed their undergraduate degrees, to be fully immersed in American Stages operations and programming, receiving hands on experience and impactful mentoring by industry professionals to prepare them for careers in the theater. Pillar 2 The Under 30 Pass. This pass offers unlimited theater to young people under the age of 30 for only $15 per month. Pass holders may attend American Stage mainstage productions, improv, cabaret and American Stage in the Park as often as they like. Pillar 3 The Under 20 Free Passport. This is a bold experiment in 2018 that allows young people under the age of 20 to have access to American Stages full mainstage season at no cost. With our Young Americans initiative, teens and young adults will have unprecedented access to our work and will have the opportunity to make theater a regular part of their lives, said Gularte. The initiative is exciting, its bold, and its absolutely imperative: Live theatre must engage todays youth to survive and thrive. The third pillar, making professional live theater free to young people under the age of 20, is a particularly ambitious effort aimed at eliminating cost as a barrier to this art form. It is also a potentially risky move for the theater. With full priced tickets covering only 55 to 60 percent of the costs of producing, giving away thousands of dollars of ticket inventory is sure to have a nancial impact. The theater is counting on the generosity of the community and arts supporters to help fund this initiative and to keep it going throughout 2018 and beyond. Scott Wagman and Beth Houghton, two St. Petersburg residents actively involved in the philanthropic community, recently offered a $25,000 matching gift, speci cally to support the Young Americans initiative. Beth and I love American Stage and were inspired by the Young Americans initiative to increase accessibility by radically cutting costs for students and young Photo by KARA GOLDBERGAmerican Stage is currently presenting an adaptation of William Shakespeares Much Ado About Nothing, running through Dec. 10. Tampa Bay areas longest-running professional theater company recently announced its Young Americans Initiative, which includes the Under 20 Free Passport. Visit americanstage.org for details.people, said Wagman. We are happy to support this outstanding initiative and are grati ed that American Stage trustees and supporters were able to meet our match of $25,000. The company is preparing for an aggressive outreach plan with the community to let young people know of this opportunity and to nd additional supporters who will help sponsor the effort. We believe in this effort and are committed to making it work for the community and for American Stage, Gularte said. For more information about supporting the Young Americans Initiative, email advancement@america nstage.org.David Crosby & Friends Tour to visit Capitol Theatre Dec. 9CLEARWATER The David Crosby and Friends tour will make a stop in the Tampa Bay area Saturday, Dec. 9, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $54.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Crosby, the two-time Rock N Roll Hall of Famer, is a co-founder of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. He is currently on the road touring in support of Sky Trails, his third solo album in the last four years. The Clearwater performance is the nal stop on this tour that boasted 25 dates and got underway in Chicago on Oct. 30. The band backing Crosby will feature his son James Raymond on keys, Mai Agan on bass, Steve DiStanislao on drums, Jeff Pevar on guitar and Michelle Willis on keys and vocals. Sky Trails continues Crosbys unexpected late-period resurgence. In his eighth decade, Crosby is not only surviving, but thriving personally and creatively. The album takes Crosby in a new musical direction as the set tilts toward a full band sound and deep, soulful grooves. Its a natural thing for me, says Crosby on his website. Crosby embraced the challenge of the shifting song structures. Ive always felt more comfortable there. Theres complexity, intricacy and subtleties in the music. I like that stuff. Sky Trails follows last years critically acclaimed Lighthouse which received praise from outlets including Rolling Stone, Stereogum and NPR Music. Before that, Crosby released Croz in 2014. Croz was Crosbys rst solo album in 20 years. Though Crosby wrote many of the songs for Sky Trails as he was working on Lighthouse, the two are distinctly different projects. Lighthouse was conspicuously and deliberately acoustic, Crosby says. Sky Trails was intended to be a full band record from the start. Crosby found himself reinvigorated by the stellar musicians with which hes surrounded himself. All the people in the Sky Trails band are much younger than me, so I have to paddle faster to keep up, he says. In Crosbys unparalleled six-decade career, the native Californian has created songs that resonate as indelible cultural touchstones for more than three generations, not only as a solo artist, but as a founding member of The Byrds in the mid-1960s, Crosby, Stills & Nash (recipients of the Grammy for best new artist in 1969), and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Hes collaborated with dozens of artists, including Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Pink Floyds David Gilmour, Phil Collins, Elton John and Carole King. The folk-rock pioneer, who was inducted into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009, has also served as our social conscience, not only eloquently writing about societal issues on such songs as Almost Cut My Hair and Wooden Ships, but continuously donating concert proceeds to likeminded causes. His towering in uence and brilliant ability to capture the spirit of our times in his music remains undiminished. Photo by DJANGO CROSBYCapitol Theatre welcomes David Crosby Dec. 9.Rickie Lee Jones to play Murray TheatreCLEARWATER Rickie Lee Jones will perform Friday, Dec. 8, 8:30 p.m., in Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $65. Call 727-7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Jones, a two-time Grammy winner, exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. A cultural phenomenon, Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance. Jones is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as confessional songwriter performances. The Other Side of Desire, her latest album, was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams. Produced by John Porter of Roxy Music and Mark Howard, this is the rst new music Jones has written in over a decade. This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with, said Jones in a press release promoting the concert. I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known in on the west coast. Here is another record then, made of my imagination and whatever else that has no words, using the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my heart, that I alone can understand and hopefully that others can enjoy. Rickie Lee Jones, her debut album, was released in 1979. Jones followed up with Pirates in 1981 and the EP Girl at Her Volcano in 1983. Other studio albums include The Magazine (1984), Flying Cowboys (1989), Pop Pop (1991), Traffic from Paradise (1993), Naked Songs: Live and Acoustic (1995), Ghostyhead (1997), Its Like This (2000), The Evening of My Best Day (2003), The Sermon on Exposition Boulevard (2007), Balm in Gilead (2009), The Devil You Know (2012) and The Other Side of Desire (2015).
