The referendum, which was approved by voters, granted the district the ability to use ad valorem taxes to fund its operation. The district is funded by a at assessment. Indian Rocks Beach Commissioner Ed Hoofnagle objected to the wording in the referendum and when he couldn’t convince the district to change the wording, he took the matter to court. In his ruling Judge Jack St. Arnold said the purpose of the referendum was to allow the re district to levy a new tax that had not previously existed.

About 420,000 Duke Energy customers were without power in Pinellas County Sept. 11, the day after Hurricane Irma toppled trees and caused other damage. Pinellas County was one of the hardest hit in Duke’s territory, according to Duke Energy spokesman Neil Nissan. Another big problem was traf c signals. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said hundreds of traffic signals were out throughout the county. Peak wind gusts reported around the county included 91 mph at Fort DeSoto, 87 mph in Belleair and 84 mph on Clearwater Beach. Rainfall totals up to 8 inches were reported in some areas and storm surge of 1-3 feet. In late September county of cials estimated that there were 600,000 cubic yards of debris in the unincorporated area, and it would take approximately four weeks to complete its rst pass through. Workers would continue to do multiple passes thereafter to pick up debris. LARGOCity commissioners bid farewell to the clock tower and City of Progress motto on July 11 when they adopted a new brand, logo and seal. The new logo and tagline unveiled by the Communications and Marketing department is “Largo, Naturally.” The logo features an “L” in script surrounded by three new colors that staff says represent three key priorities for the city – community pride, public safety and sustainability. The city seal also has been modi ed, replacing the wording City of Progress with Largo.com. “The purpose of the new brand, logo and tagline is to support the vision for Largo, which is to be the community of choice in Tampa Bay,” multimedia supervisor Brandon Graham said.City government For months, city leaders had discussed concerns about Largo’s nancial future and its lack of reserves. Hurricane Irma ampli ed those concerns, so city commissioners voted Sept. 19 to increase the tax rate 13 percent from 5.3705 mills to 5.7413, or $5.74 for each $1,000 in taxable value.

Community 3A TBN, December 28, 2017 Belleair Beach By WAYNE AYERS TBN CorrespondentBELLEAIR BEACH – Six candidates are seeking to ll four council seats up for election in the city this time. Running are a lively mix that includes a former mayor who won his current council seat in a coin toss, former council members, one candidate who is running to replace his wife who is not seeking re-election and a couple of political newcomers. The election is March 13. To further enliven the race, four of the candidates are from one neighborhood, where the undergrounding of utilities has been an overriding issue for some time. That is just now at a critical point where the pieces could be coming together to make it happen, but some are still skeptical. The election could shake up Belleair Beach city government, or bring little change, depending on the winners. The City Council is composed of seven members, who serve for three years. The only candidate running this year who has served a full term or more on the current council is Julie “Jewels” Chandler. If re-elected, she will begin her second term. Rob Baldwin, a former mayor who won a coin toss to gain his council seat, was appointed last month. The coin toss was needed when council deadlocked in choosing between Baldwin and Jody Shirley to ll the seat of Council Member Jeril Cohen, who died in October. Shirley is also running for a council seat. Council Member Mitch Krach announced he is not seeking re-election, leaving an open seat. Council Member Pamela Gunn also announced she is not running again. Her husband, Glenn Gunn, who frequently speaks on issues at council meetings, is running, hoping to replace his wife. Also on the ballot will be Marvin Behm, a former council member, and Dr. Nicolas Pavouris. Both live in the Bellevue Estates neighborhood, where the residents have been outspoken on the utility undergrounding issue. Gunn and Shirley also live in that area. Council members in Belleair Beach do not run in districts, so residents will vote for four out of the six candidates, and the top four vote-getters will win. The candidates were asked why they are seeking a council seat or why they want to remain on council. Council Member Rob Baldwin said he wants to make sure no Belleair Beach resident feels excluded or goes unrepresented, that “each of us has an equal voice.” Baldwin feels there is a clear danger that the agenda of a select few could hijack the resources and nances of the city. “I hope to focus our energies on real priorities and serve as a counter-balance to special interest demands, so we can preserve our unique quality of life for all Belleair Beach residents,” he said. Marv Behm said he sees an opportunity for change in Belleair Beach and would be honored to serve as a city council member “with the new and talented candidates that are running for of ce.” If elected, Behm said he will look forward to working with the city council and “creating new plans to move the city forward.” Council member Jewels Chandler, running for her second term on council, said she brings “experience, honesty and integrity, as well as an open mind, which are important assets needed to bene t our beautiful coastal community and all of its residents.” “I have considered, and will continue to consider, all the facts, and the interests of all the residents, not just small groups,” she said. Glenn Gunn believes the city of Belleair Beach is failing to keep pace with neighboring beach communities. “I represent a group of residents calling for an entirely new council with strategic vision, better stewardship of their tax dollars, and greater accountability,” he said. Gunn said his 26 years of Coast Guard aviation and command experience have prepared him well “for managing the challenges of improving our city.” Dr. Nicolas Pavouris said he is running because he feels Belleair Beach is an extraordinary city. “I want to encourage and facilitate a positive conversation that produces meaningful results. The time is right for a unique perspective to re ect the needs of our city,” he said. Pavouris said his experience as chief of staff of Florida Hospital, chief medical officer of Tampa Family Health Centers, and as a small business owner, give him the leadership skills “to ensure city council listens and represents the citizens of Belleair Beach.” Jody Shirley said she wants to focus on quality of life issues, such as utility undergrounding and better maintenance to give the city “more curb appeal.” As a real estate developer, Shirley said she will work to improve property values and give the city “a clear direction.” She also said that council “needs a fresh look,” as most members have served for years. A candidates’ forum is being planned, to be facilitated by the League of Women Voters.Belleair Beach candidates a diverse mixSix seeking to ll council seats, including former mayor, council members and political newcomers 122817SBL 122817 $25.99 GENTLEMAN JACK 750ML $27.99 TITO’S VODKA1.75L $20.99 1.75L $39.99 CROWN ROYAL 750ML CAPTAIN MORGAN 1.75L $19.99 750ML $12.99 SKYY VODKA 1.75L $18.99$19.99 SOUTHERN COMFORT 1.75LJOHNNY WALKER RED LABEL 1.75L $29.99 750ML $18.99Must Present Coupon.

4A Community TBN, December 28, 2017“The title’s failure to use the word ‘tax’ after the words ‘ad valorem’ and summary’s use of the words ‘reduce’ and ‘reduced ad valorem tax’ does not accurately describe the chief purpose of the proposal and misleads the voter,” he wrote. Judge St. Arnold also wrote that deception of the voting public is intolerable. Meanwhile, Fire Chief Mike Burton, who took office in October, is forming a task force to identify any additional opportunities for operational ef ciencies, explore current/future funding concerns and identify funding strategies that are fair and equitable to the taxpayers while ensuring sustainability for the district.In other Indian Rocks Beach news: Changes in city government leadership made headlines in 2107 with longtime Mayor R.B. Johnson announcing that he will not seek re-election and City Commissioner Terry Hamilton Wollin losing her seat in the March election. Johnson decided that 18 years of service on the City Commission including 10 as mayor was enough. Johnson said any advice he might pass along to his successor would have to do with keeping things calm on the commission. “The best thing is not to make issues partisan. You are mayor of the entire city and you should try to keep people together as much as possible. It really is an important thing,” he said. Running for his seat in the March 2018 election are Commissioner Cookie Kennedy, who has been on the City Commission for nine years and Donald House, a resident of IRB since 2000. In March civic activist Phil Wrobel defeated Hamilton Wollin, who had served on the commission for about a decade. “I feel ne. Everything has a shelf life and my shelf life is apparently 10 years,” she said after the election. “I have no hard feelings at all. The sun is going to shine tomorrow, the moon is going to set on the Gulf and our ag will still y and all will be well.”  A community center will be built on the site of the old Solid Waste facility adjacent to Keegan Clair Park next to the Holiday Inn. Solid Waste was moved to a site in Largo several months ago. City Manager Gregg Mims has said it is a facility that has been needed in the community. “It is being built so it can be used as an open-air facility,” he said. “People can have events and parties there and it will accommodate a lot of people if it is used as an indoor-outdoor space.” Construction on the proposed new community center could be delayed by several months thanks to a miscalculation in the cost of the project. At their regular meeting on Nov. 14, city commissioners unanimously agreed to allow Mims to reject all bids for the construction of the center. Mims said the bids were all too high with the lowest of the seven being $774,000 for the project that the city estimated would cost no more than $450,000.Longtime Belleair Beach city manager retiresBELLEAIR BEACH – City Manager Nancy Gonzalez retired at the end of September, after serving in that position since 2007. Prior to taking that position she served seven years as city clerk. She also held positions with Indian Shores, Seminole, Gulfport and Redington Beach. The council said it would go through a search process to select a new city manager. Taking the reins as interim city manager is Community Services Director Lynn Rives, a former Belleair Beach mayor. In other city news over the past year, City Council members were impressed with the bene ts of a solar option for the city’s future streetlights. Interim City Manager Lynn Rives presented several alternatives for streetlights at a special meeting held Nov. 30 to discuss a utility undergrounding project getting underway in the city’s Belleview Islands Estates neighborhood. Residents there have agreed to nance the project themselves to get their utility wires put underground after a years-long wait. Rives said he was told the residents want “a different look regarding streetlights.” The lighting option choices there could be expanded to include other neighborhoods that have expressed an interest in utility undergrounding, and possibly the entire city, Rives said. In other Belleair Beach news this year:  Renourishment of the local beaches, scheduled to begin in late November, has been pushed out until the spring, probably sometime in March, Mayor Leslie Notaro said at the Dec. 4 council meeting. The mayor said she had spoken to county of cials and was told they were still dealing with issues from Hurricane Irma. Notaro added she was assured “we will be getting more sand before next year’s storm season.”  November’s tie vote to select a new council member to replace Jeril Cohen, who died in October, resulted in a coin toss at the Nov. 30 meeting to determine the winner. The council had remained deadlocked after several tries to choose between former Mayor Rob Baldwin and Planning and Zoning board member Jody Shirley. Notaro ipped the coin, an 1868 silver dollar. Baldwin called heads, and he won. He was then sworn in, took his council seat, and was an active participant in the street-lighting discussion.Town manager takes job in Clearwater, assistant city manager takes the reinsBELLEAIR – Town Manager Micah Maxwell, who led the community through some of its toughest challenges, became the assistant city manager of Clearwater in May. Maxwell had held his current position since 2006. In a sense, this new job is a coming home for Maxwell. He began his municipal career in Clearwater as an intern in the city manager’s of ce. Then, in 2004 he was hired in Belleair as assistant to the town manager. A year later he was promoted to assistant town manager. Then a year after that became the town manager. History will show that the next challenge would be perhaps the biggest in the history of Belleair: the demise of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. “The hotel was obviously a very significant challenge going right back to 2007 when we thought we had a development, when we thought it could be renovated. The recession dashed those hopes and we have what we have today,” he said. “It was a huge challenge and certainly there were lines that divided the town, but going through the process really helped us in trying to reach a consensus on how to move forward and that’s how it ended up,” he said. “It was a challenge but a good example of everyone coming together on all sides.” Belleair Mayor Gary Katica admits that he is sorry to see Maxwell leave, but is happy for him nevertheless. “He’s the best and he’s going to be the best,” he said. “I have nothing but admiration for him and wish him the best. Micah’s calm hands were a great help to me, and I’m sure to the other commissioners.” Assistant Town Manager J.P. Murphy was named town manager, assuming the position in May. In other news, city of cials announced plans to refurbish Magnolia Park. At a meeting in June commissioners agreed to remake the park by removing some trees that are blocking the sun and preventing the grass from growing. Fountains will be installed along with a pet drinking area, landscaping and a new irrigation system. Berms also will be built to give the park attendees a little privacy from motorists driving by. At a commission meeting, discussion centered on whether to install a playground and community garden in the new park. While several people spoke in favor of having those amenities, most did not and in the end the commission voted to begin construction without adding the playground or garden. The total cost of the make-over will be $211,000, with $150,000 of that coming from the Belleair Community Foundation. The BCF has partnered with the town on other projects, most notably the makeover of Hunter Park, which is now called Hunter Memorial Park and contains a huge fountain and tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces. BCF founder and town Commissioner Karla Rettstatt said in November that upgrading the community’s parks is essential. “People use parks; it is a lifestyle,” she said. “People have to have a place to go, to relax. It is a meditation place for comfort so it is important to take care of them. It is something that is bene cial to the overall health of our residents.”New re station opens in Belleair BluffsBELLAIR BLUFFS – After years of planning and discussions, the new Fire Station 43 opened Oct. 12 at 682 Indian Rocks Road. The station’s site, on city-owned land across from Belleair Bluffs City Hall, was chosen because it provides the best response time to all the communities served by Station 43. Those include Belleair Bluffs, Belleair, and the county unincorporated areas of Harbor Bluffs, Harbor Hills and Oakdale Manor. Of cials said to get the optimum response time for all those areas, the station would need to be located south of Mehlenbacher and north of West Bay Drive. The new station will be a sharp contrast to the current Fire Station 43 on Indian Rocks Road, which is housed in a former gas station. That facility needs major repairs, lacks apparatus and equipment and does not meet health and safety requirements, of cials said. Planning for a new station began in 2011, Largo Fire Chief Shelby Willis said, when Belleair Bluffs, Belleair, Largo and the county entered into a joint agreement to build the station. Belleair Bluffs Mayor Chris Arbutine drew the most applause of the day Oct. 12 when he told the group, “I come here with a sigh of relief. We did it!” In other city matters, a divided commission June 19 approved raising the city’s utility tax, the second increase in a little over a year. Money from the tax hike will be used exclusively to pay for “projects related to street improvements, repairs and/or maintenance.” The increase had the support of Mayor Chris Arbutine, and Commissioners Joseph Barkley and Jack Nazario. Commissioners Taylour Shimkus and Suzy Sofer were opposed. The latest increase doubles a 5 percent utility tax on residents’ electric bills. The vote came at the June 21 City Commission meeting, where a number of residents showed up to voice their opposition. The opinions of the residents and commissioners on the tax increase were little changed when the ordinance to raise the tax was first presented. That also passed by a 3-2 margin, and many of the same residents spoke against it then. The residents’ comments had a common theme: “We don’t want this tax, many of us can’t afford it, but the commission does not listen to us.”Belleair Shore addresses beach access upgradesPlanned improvements to the town’s three beach accesses at Sixth, 12th and 19th streets are being done. The upgrades are making the accesses more attractive and friendlier for beachgoers. The work and costs are being shared by Belleair Shore and Belleair Beach. The accesses are in Belleair Shore but are intended to be used by Belleair Beach residents, who cross Gulf Boulevard to access the beach. An interlocal agreement between the two municipalities assigns Belleair Beach responsibility for most of the maintenance. A plan to upgrade the beach accesses began last year with replacement of the gates at each. That was paid for by Belleair Shore. Belleair Beach agreed to recoat and restripe the parking lots. That has been done, Commissioner Steve Blume told the Bee. Blume said Belleair Beach Public Services Director Lynn Rives “jumped right on that and got it done.” New landscaping is also planned to be done in front of the beach accesses, with funds from the county Gulf Boulevard Beauti cation project. Belleair Shore has agreed to take care of repairing cracks, re-stuccoing and repairing the walls and columns at the beach accesses. The commission has set aside $5,000 for that work. according to unof cial totals. The approval sets the stage for Imagine Clearwater – the city’s $55 million redevelopment plan that will dramatically redevelop an area of the city identi ed as a vastly underutilized asset. The passage of the referendum will now allow development along Coachman Park and the waterfront, which was previously limited to open space by the city charter. City leaders approved the downtown waterfront master plan earlier this year, which among other things, calls for the creation of 74 additional parking spaces; water-based programming that will include a splash pad, rain catcher fountain and children’s water play area; new restroom facilities; and adjustment and relocation of the city’s band shell. Phase one elements would include removal of surface parking, design and construction of park elements north of Cleveland Street, demolition of the Harborview Center and solicitation of redevelopment proposals, construction of a civic gateway, planning and development of a library cafe or restaurant and the redevelopment of private lots. Phase two calls for expansion of the park south of Cleveland Street, including expansion of the bluff walk to the south, relocation of city hall and the solicitation of redevelopment proposals. Launch of phase one could be expected in 2019, with phase two launching five years later.City upgradesCity leaders are investing in other ways to brighten the city’s outlook. Clearwater is moving forward with a feasibility study for enhancements at the Main Library, at a cost of just less than $100,000. The scope of the study is to focus on the potential development of the rst oor of the library, including the creation of a cafe and outside seating area, as well as the repurposing of the rooftop terrace area on the facility’s highest level. The second phase of the study will focus on the development of alternate space allocation designs for the interior of the library and will include community workshops to gain feedback. Clearwater council members approved in February a joint participation agreement between the city and the Florida Department of Transportation to conduct a master plan study for the Clearwater Airpark. The comprehensive plan will study the short-, mediumand long-term development plans of the airpark with the goal of creating a framework for future airport development that is both cost-effective and environmentally and socioeconomically responsible. City leaders in August moved forward with a number of improvements planned for facilities all across the Clearwater area that will bene t both residents and tourists alike. The city has approved three grant agreements with the Pinellas County Tourist Development Council for renovation and construction of three major facilities in Clearwater.  The rst is for the construction and renovation of press boxes at the Eddie C. Moore Fields number 8 and 9 in the amount of $495,000.  The second is for the redesign and renovation of Ruth Eckerd Hall in the amount of $5.5 million. The city will be responsible for managing, supervising and overseeing the project and must secure all permits and approvals for the project.  The third is for the renovation and construction at the Countryside Sports Complex in the amount of $1.9 million. The complex has a seating capacity of 350 and includes two football elds and two soccer/ lacrosse elds. City officials also approved a contract with Wannemacher Jenson Architects for architectural and engineering services for the design of restrooms, concession stands, a press box, lockers and storage and meeting rooms at the complex in the amount of $152,000.Budget re ects growth, no tax increaseThe city’s general fund budget re ects a 2.5 percent increase from last year with expenditures at $134,945,720. The proposed millage rate will remain unchanged at 5.1550 mills for the ninth year in a row. Taxable property values increased more than 8 percent in 2017, from $9.4 billion to $10.2 billion and marks the fth consecutive year of increased valuations in the city. According to the budget, the proposed millage rate will generate approximately $48 million for the city’s general fund, an increase of $3.6 million from the previous year.City offers business owners incentivesIn efforts to attract more restaurants and breweries to downtown Clearwater, the Community Redevelopment Agency will now offer a new program that offers funding of up to $250,000 to commercial property owners and tenants looking to open such a business. The Anchor Tenant Incentive Program was approved by city council members on May 12 during a meeting of the CRA at city hall. The program will provide loan to grant funding to commercial property owners and commercial tenants to assist with interior building improvements, as well as business start up costs such as furniture, xtures and equipment. Some of the objectives of that program include attracting high quality restaurants and breweries to the downtown corridor; improving the appearance of downtown commercial buildings; increasing downtown commercial occupancy rate and property values; and promoting Clearwater’s downtown revitalization as a waterfront dining and entertainment destination.Scientology showdownAfter weeks of public and private discussions, widespread resident outcry and an enigmatic courting effort by the Church of Scientology, members of the Clearwater City Council finally put to an end the campaign for control over a downtown parcel of land identi ed as vital to the future growth of the city. The council voted 5-0 on April 20 to move forward with the $4.25 million purchase of a 1.4-acre parcel of land adjacent to City Hall, which now gives the city a contiguous tract of 2.1 acres of property along the north and south sides of Pierce Street between Osceola Avenue and the waterfront. The unanimous decision effectively blocked the Church of Scientology’s bid for the coveted property, currently owned by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and cut short the Church’s hopes to develop the parcel into a swimming pool and playground area for guests of its adjacent hotel, The Oak Cove. The move came after weeks of lobbying efforts by the Church, including private, one-on-one meetings between city council members and church leader David Miscavige, who outlined plans that would revitalize downtown Cleveland Street by focusing on developing retail businesses and the creation of a downtown entertainment center. Miscavige also implied in meetings with city of cials that the church would be willing to fund – perhaps even at 100 percent – the facade overhaul for the Cleveland Street District in an effort to update old buildings that have a lot of character, but only if the city were to back away from its plans to purchase the 301 Pierce St. property. With the city’s purchase of the property, those plans have since disappeared. BEE, from page 1A BEACON, from page 1A Belleair By BRIAN GOFF TBN CorrespondentBELLEAIR – Mayor Gary Katica is not happy that there is going to be an election for his seat in March. More speci cally he isn’t happy with the man who is running against him. When the candidate qualifying period closed at 4 p.m. on Dec. 19, two people, Katica and resident Spencer Connerat, had qualified to run for mayor. No one else had entered the race. Katica dismissed his opponent out of hand. “I’m running against a non-entity,” he said. “I don’t want to tout my background; people know what I’ve done and where my head is.” Katica, 84, has been mayor of Belleair for the past 12 years and he served on the commission before that. He’s upset that there has to be an election. “It is going to cost the town five to 10 thousand dollars to have an election,” he said. “To elect a person who has never been to a public hearing or served on a committee or anything like that.” He said he isn’t going to run a campaign. “I’m not going to do anything. Listen, I’ve been mayor for 12 years; people know what my record is,” he said. When asked if the election represents democracy in action, Katica returned to his theme. “Democracy in action, fine, just so you are aware that you are costing the town five to 10 thousand dollars for democracy in action,” he said. “If you were participating in the town that’s one thing, but I’m running against someone who has never done anything in the town, zero.” For his part Spencer Connerat said he intends to run a clean campaign. “It should be a positive campaign; I’m running a positive campaign in a great town,” he said. Connerat, 49, is married with a 2-year-old child. He works in the compliance department of a nancial brokerage rm, and he’s lived in Belleair since 2011. He said he is running in the election to provide competition for the job. “I feel there should be competition for elected office,” he said. “It is my understanding that if I hadn’t quali ed the three incumbents in Belleair would not have faced an election. I believe it is good to have competition.” Connerat said it is important to him that the election campaign be a platform to discuss and solve community issues. “I’m a big believer in civil discourse,” he said. “I want to have discourse about the issues in a civil fashion and I hope the town will be better for it. I hope to provide an alternative.” The issues Connerat hopes to address during the campaign include the town’s infrastructure, the water department and the budget. “I am also in favor of accountability,” he said. In addition to the mayoral election, two commissioners, Karla Rettstatt and Michael Wilkinson, will both be re-elected unopposed. Rettstatt, 59, had previously served two terms on the commission and this will be her second term this time around. “I’m thrilled that residents feel that I am doing a really good job,” she said. “I’m really passionate about Belleair, and I want to give my time and energy to making this a better life. We have a unique community and I want to be a participant in it.” Rettstatt said the big issue to her is the continuing battle to upgrade the town’s infrastructure. “We have to keep trying to move the infrastructure forward,” she said. “We have to try to find grants and partner with different organizations and different residents to make some serious improvements.” Michael Wilkinson, 53, will be entering his third term on the commission. He said he enjoys what he does on the commission. “Our government is very close to the people and I like being part of that,” he said. “I like having input into the town and a voice for the town and our residents.” Wilkinson, like the others, feels the town’s infrastructure is a major priority. “We must continue to tackle that,” he said. “I think we have to address our water distribution as well.” As for his thoughts about being re-elected unopposed, Wilkinson said he was attered by it. “I’m honored to serve and I don’t really read too much into that,” he said. He said he is looking forward to serving with a commission that gets along well. “It is a good group,” he said. “We all bring different skills and attributes to the commission and we all have mutual respect for one another.” The election will be held on Tuesday, March 13.Belleair mayor not happy about upcoming electionKatica says opponent, Connerat, a no entity,' upset about race cost Gary Katica Spencer Connerat Michael Wilkinson Karla Rettstatt FILE PHOTOOf cials cut the ribbon on the new Fire Station 43 that opened Oct. 12 at 682 Indian Rocks Road.

Community 5A TBN, December 28, 2017 By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO – Joe Scheibelhut and Dan Graston, owners of Arkane Aleworks in Largo, believe brewing beer is an art form and pride themselves on experimenting with a variety of ingredients. So, what happens when the award-winning brewers have some extra time on their hands? They throw Krispy Kreme doughnuts into their beer, of course. The pair has teamed up with Josh Garman of Tampa’s Hidden Springs Ale Works to brew an imperial stout featuring the famous glazed doughnuts. Scheibelhut said Krispy Kreme was not originally on board with the project, but it has since reached out to them asking about getting involved in the project. Scheibelhut said the yet-tobe-named beer still needs to be packaged and labeled before it is available to the public for sale, but it should be ready by the new year on draft and in bottles for $25. The Leader had several hard-hitting questions about the project, so it reached out to the brewers. Here’s what they had to say. Q: Why create a beer made from Krispy Kreme doughnuts? A: Why not create a beer from donuts? After all, beer is essentially liquid bread and donuts are basically bread, too! Sounds like a match made in heaven! Q : No, really, why create a beer made from Krispy Kreme doughnuts? A: It was more of a joke to start out actually. Todd Strauss from Slim Pickens Cider and Mead stopped by during our collaboration brew day and I dared him to throw the leftover Krispy Kreme donuts into the beer. Without much hesitation, Todd grabbed the sugary treats and started tossing them into the brew kettle! It’s kind of his thing. Todd is cake’s worst nightmare. Seriously, Todd would put cake and snacks in every beer if he could. During fermentation, the decision was made to add more donuts because donuts make everything better. Q: How did you find other brewers as craz ... err ... creative as yourselves? A: That was the easy part. We really like the whole crew over at Hidden Springs Ale Works in Tampa – the only other local brewery that has the same attitude towards beer as we do. Beer is a serious business, sure, but if we can’t have fun with beer then what’s the point? We really dig everything those guys are doing and are happy to nally be brewing a collab with them. Q: You guys are known for your experimentation, using ingredients like Peeps and Skittles. Have you considered using lesser-known ingredients such as grain, hops and yeast? A: Actually never gave brewing with grain, hops, or yeast a thought until now. Can you actually do that? We’ll do some research and get back to you. Q: Doughnuts are known to be high in calories and generally unhealthy. Will your beer be both delicious and help us live longer so we can drink more beer and eat more doughnuts? (P.S. We don’t care if your beer is unhealthy. Please just answer yes and let’s move on). A : Yes. Q: Are you concerned that your obvious prejudice against Dunkin’ Donuts will turn off some customers? A: No way! We are more than happy to brew another donut beer with Dunkin’. At Arkane, we pride ourselves on the fact that we never judge a donut by the color of their dough, type of lling, or sprinkle preference. Have Dunkin’s people contact our people. We’ll work something out. Apologies if our donut jokes are in poor taste. Q: The beer will have an alcohol by volume of 12.5 percent. How do you determine the alcoholic content for such a drink? Does it have anything to do with how much alcohol it takes to get you drunk enough to come up with the idea of putting doughnuts in your beer? A: Close. Everyone should know that when brewing a collab beer with another brewery a lot of hard work is involved. We traveled all the way to Tampa and began drinking beers after our arrival around 9 a.m. By noon, we had consumed enough beers to make silly...er...serious decisions like adding donuts to the current brew. After sharing a few more beers, the ninja stars come out and we begin to throw them at a huge dartboard with random numbers. The number that we hit the most is the winner. I think this one was 12.5 abv. Q: You guys have won many awards for a wide variety of your beers. Is there a category for best doughnut-infused beer? If so, who is your biggest competition? If not, why the hell not? A: It’s my understanding that the Brewer’s Association will be adding a donut beer category to the current list of recognized styles soon. If that’s the case, then my stiffest competition would likely come from my friend Wayne Wambles at Cigar City Brewing. He’s no stranger to donut beers and brewed one of the first this state has ever seen. But I’d rather join forces with Wayne and brew the Dunkin’ collab. I’d call it “Dunkin’ your panties in a bunch!” Q: What could possibly be up next for you guys? A: Who knows what the future holds? We did brew a return collaboration with the guys from Hidden Springs. It’s a cherry sour ale with coffee and maple syrup. A breakfast sour beer. Maybe Mrs. Butterworth’s will call us next!Largo's mad scientists of suds create new delight Largo Arkane Aleworks teams up with Tampa brewery to create Krispy Kreme beerPhoto courtesy of HIDDEN SPRINGS ALE WORKSA photo from the Hidden Springs Ale Works Facebook page shows the beginnings of a hard day at work at Arkane Aleworks.

6A Community TBN, December 28, 2017 By WAYNE AYERS TBN CorrespondentBELLEAIR SHORE – Contested elections are rare in Belleair Shore, and this year is no exception. Commissioners Steve Blume, Dorothy Niewiarowski and Raymond Piscitelli were up for election and there were no opposing candidates. The three will begin new twoyear terms when their present terms expire in March. Piscitelli is the longest serving of the three. He joined the commission in 2004 and will be beginning his ninth term in of ce. Piscitelli has said he is running for another term, but Town Attorney Regina Kardash said she has not yet received qualifying paperwork from him. The attorney said she is not concerned, as he can be appointed by the commission. Niewiarowski is the commission’s newest member, joining the commission in 2015. She replaced Jennifer Lindsay, who moved out of Belleair Shore. Blume was rst elected in 2014. Both he and Niewiarowski will begin their third term in March.Streetlight upgrade delayed by IrmaA planned upgrading and repositioning of the town’s streetlights has been put off due to other priorities related to Hurricane Irma that Duke Energy is still addressing, said Blume at the Dec. 19 commission meeting. The utility will upgrade the lights to brighter, more efficient LED bulbs, and redirect them from shining in residents’ yards to instead light the sidewalk. Duke has agreed to pick up the expense. Currently, less than half of the town’s approximately 26 streetlights face the sidewalk, leaving many segments unlighted. Blume had announced the project in June, but it was given low priority by Duke. Then came Hurricane Irma in September, which caused further delay. At the December meeting, Blume said, “We’ve signed an agreement, but we were told it would be awhile because they have a lot of things to do related to the hurricane.” Blume said he would call Duke prior to the next board meeting to get an update, “or maybe the work will be done by then.”Beach access cleanup praisedBlume also commended Belleair Beach for cleanup efforts and overall upkeep of the town’s three beach accesses, at Sixth, 12th and 19th streets. The accesses are in Belleair Shore but are intended to be used by Belleair Beach residents, who cross Gulf Boulevard to access the beach. An interlocal agreement between the two communities assigns Belleair Beach responsibility for most of the maintenance. Blume said multiple trees were damaged by the hurricane and had to be taken out. Belleair Beach maintenance people “came out and removed them,” Blume said. Also, he said Belleair Beach Public Works Director Lynn Rives “is doing a good job” of keeping up the beach accesses. “Much better than before,” he added.Belleair Shore commissioners re-elected Belleair Shore bill for a resident who owns a home valued at $139,000 would be about $512, or about $48 more than the previous year. The increase means only St. Petersburg (6.7550 mills) and Belleair (5.9257) have higher tax rates.  The sewer over ows that have plagued the city for the past decade were much less frequent this past storm season, and, according to city officials, there was a reason for that. Two projects designed to reduce the over ows have been fully operational since Aug. 10. The Wet Weather Project is a $44.2 million sanitary sewer expansion that helps get water and sewage to the treatment plant faster. The $25 million headworks project, which includes a 5 million gallon holding tank at the plant, is also online.  Commissioners voted 7-0 on Nov. 7 to abolish the city’s blue law to allow businesses the ability to dispense alcoholic beverages beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday, which is three hours earlier than the ordinance previously stated.  The state Supreme Court ended a battle with a nonpro t in a breach of contract case March 2 when justices ruled 6-0 in favor of the city, validating the contract in question and ordering the nonpro t that owns Brittany Bay apartment complex to pay the city what could end up amounting to nearly $1.5 million.Arts and Entertainment  On July 11, Wayne Williams was named the city’s first poet laureate. Since the Largo Library opened 12 years ago, Williams, who works in the city’s communications department, has hosted the monthly Poets Live program in which people get to write, read and discuss poetry. Williams, a published author whose collection of poetry, “The Trunk,” pulls stories from his blue-collar upbringing, said he hopes being named a poet laureate will pay off for the city by promoting an untapped love of arts in Largo.  The Suncoast Performing Arts Foundation announced Aug. 1 during a state-of-the-arts report for the City Commission that a new bandshell is in the works for Largo Central Park. The structure would probably cost between $150,000 and $350,000.  After working nine to 10 hours a day for about three weeks, artist Tanya Pistillo completed a nautical-themed mural at Jimmy’s Sports Lounge at the corner of Clearwater-Largo and Rosery roads. Pistillo, who was working for free, would’ve charged about $7,000 for the mural. She had previously painted the mural that reads “Greetings from downtown Largo” at the corner of West Bay Drive and Fourth Street.Veterans community Worth Edward Johnson of Largo was 17 when he was killed in France during World War I and buried in a military cemetery there. His remains were later taken home, but a French historian researching soldiers who were buried in the French cemetery enlisted the help of Largo historians to learn about Johnson in an effort to honor the soldiers.  On Sept. 26, Patrick Bradley joined Avian Veteran Alliance co-founder Kaleigh Hoyt, Telia Hann, one of the program’s first graduates, and Largo Mayor Woody Brown in visiting Kennebunkport, Maine, to discuss a book in which the program is featured with former President George H.W. Bush and rst lady Barbara Bush, who wrote the foreword for the book. The book, “Vets and Pets: Wounded Warriors and the Animals That Help Them Heal,” tells the stories of the bonds between service members and their service animals.

8A Community TBN, December 28, 2017 By BOB McCLURETampa Bay NewspapersAs in past years, the beaches produced no shortage of news stories in 2017. Following are some of the headlines that made news during the year from Tierra Verde to Indian Shores.  A revised plan that signi cantly reduces the size of buildings in a major development proposed for the Madeira Beach gateway was approved by the city commission Jan. 10. The revised plan signi cantly reduces the size of four of the ve buildings in the project. Two hotels and two condominium buildings will be downsized, while a low-rise marina building will have added space. The two hotels will be reduced in size from 11 stories to eight. One of the hotels will have a 20 percent reduction in rooms, from 180 to 148, with 10 condo units added to the top. The other large hotel is being reduced from 250 rooms to 168, a 30 percent reduction. About 40,000 square feet of retail space will front the property.  Former Treasure Island Fire Chief Charles Fant died Jan. 15 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in St. Petersburg after a long battle with cancer. He was 64. Fant was a member of the Treasure Island Fire Department for 41 years and served as fire chief for 30 years until his retirement in January 2012.  Pressure from Madeira Beach residents resulted in another major development in the city being reduced in size and redesigned. A revised plan that features a significant downsizing of the Holiday Isle Marina, proposed for the Holton property on the Intracoastal Waterway at the foot of the Tom Stuart Causeway Bridge, was presented at the Feb. 14 City Commission meeting. The number of buildings was reduced from the six approved in 2016 to two. A 122-room condo-hotel is now gone from the plan. The remaining 150room hotel was reduced from seven oors over two oors of parking to ve oors over one parking oor. Residential condo units were reduced from 68 to 31 in one veoor building that is replacing three previous sevenand nine-story structures. A planned standalone restaurant will now be located in the hotel. A proposed marina will have 124 boat slips, which are 40 less than originally planned.  In mid-March, Al Johnson was elected mayor of St. Pete Beach, defeating interim mayor Deborah Schechner and community activist John-Michael Fleig. Johnson’s term runs through March 2020.  The Treasure Island City Commission took on a new look in March when challenger Deborah Toth defeated longtime commissioner Phil Collins for the District 1 seat and Ralph Kennedy defeated Patrick Jeffares for the District 3 seat.  Madeira Beach of cials voted 3-2 on May 4 to suspend City Manager Shane Crawford and fire City Clerk Cheryl Crawford, Shane’s wife. Newly-elected Mayor Maggi Black, who led the charge, said the move was needed “to make our city whole again.” She insisted the move was “not based on retribution.” Newly-elected commissioners Nancy Oakley and John Douthirt backed Black. A few weeks later, attorneys from both sides worked out a settlement agreement that ended Shane Crawford’s employment with the city after 24 weeks as a consultant.  After four years of sitting vacant, it was announced in early August the site of the former Wine Cellar restaurant in North Redington Beach will soon be redeveloped into a group of restaurants called Redington Village. The two-acre site at 17307 Gulf Blvd., was purchased for $2.04 million by Redington Village LLC, which is a subsidiary of Tampa-based AG Development Group. Principals in the project are Allen Goins, chief executive of cer of AG Development, and Robert Schmidt of Belleair Shore, owner of Schmidt Investments of South Florida. Goins said the project encompasses four buildings and a total of 16,000 square feet. Plans call for 120 or more parking spaces.  As work slowly wrapped up on the rst phase of the PassA-Grille Way road project, St. Pete Beach leaders took the first step on the second phase Sept. 26. St. Pete Beach commissioners voted unanimously to approve a $10.2 million bid by Gibbs & Register, Inc. to complete the next leg of the project, from 19th Avenue south to First Avenue. The total cost will be in the area of $11.5 million after the city pays for new trees, street lights and a Duke Energy connection fee to a city storm water lift station.  A recall committee in Madeira Beach announced plans in mid-October to oust two city commissioners elected in March. Commissioners John Douthirt and Nancy Oakley, along with Mayor Maggi Black, won their seats in a hotly contested election, fueled mostly by controversy over two major developments planned for the city’s eastern gateway corridor. A recall yer charges Douthirt and Oakley with “numerous charter and Sunshine Law violations,” as well as being incompetent and having “questionable ethics.”  Treasure Island city commissioners named Garry Brumback city manager. The decision was announced Nov. 3, following interviews by commissions a day earlier. Brumback, 60, most recently was town manager of Southington, Connecticut where he served seven years. He also served previously as assistant city manager in Clearwater.  After weeks of speculation about his future as Madeira Beach city manager, Derryl O’Neal decided Nov. 13 to return to his old job as city re chief. O’Neal was back and forth on the issue since being named city manager Oct. 10 to replace Shane Crawford. In a letter to the City Commission, O’Neal cited changing advice he was given concerning the retirement bene ts he would receive if he made the switch from fire chief to city manager. O’Neal said, in consulting with his financial adviser at Raymond James Investments and of cials of the Florida Retirement System and Florida Department of Revenue in Tallahassee, he was given conflicting and sometimes incorrect information. O’Neal said he was told, during reviews of his financial status, that he “would be OK,” as the city manager is an appointed position with an exempt status. Later, he was advised “the FRS retirement benefit that I had worked toward for the past 30 years would stop and all my assets would be frozen inde nitely.” The barrage of information caused O’Neal, after initially accepting the city manager position to step down and request a return to being re chief two weeks later, on Oct. 27. Then three days later, on Oct. 30, O’Neal announced he wanted to remain in the city manager job, for now, and evaluate his options. Year End: Beaches Year End: Seminole Projects, controversy highlight year By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE – One of the biggest stories of the year involves the loss of the Seminole Water Tower. The county demolished the longtime icon, which stood at the northwest corner of 74th Avenue and 113th Street, this summer after much debate. The tower had been decommissioned in 2012. At the end of 2016, Seminole residents and leaders realized the county intended to demolish the tower and sell the scrap metal. A group of citizens formed the Friends of the Seminole Water Tower and launched a campaign to save the structure, exploring various funding options. Meanwhile, the city attempted to negotiate a lease proposal with the county for the tower. But councilors were unhappy with the terms proposed by county leaders and rejected their offer at the end of June. The proposed lease called for the city to pay approximately $52,700 per year with a 3 percent annual increase for 99 years. The city would also be responsible for deferred maintenance of the property, estimated to cost around $135,000. The lease would have also forbidden historic and other special designations, making it dif cult for the city to obtain sponsorships and grants to cover upkeep of the structure. Demolition of the tower began in July and was completed this fall.Other news items from 2017:• The city celebrated the opening of Waterfront Park, 10400 Park Blvd., Nov. 4. The park, which is partially funded by state grants, will be completed in three phases. Phase I, which includes a kayak and canoe launch, waterfront boardwalk, a new concrete entrance and minimal entrance signage, stormwater infrastructure, a shell/crushed concrete driveway and parking area, and a potable water wash down area, was completed this summer. Later phases of the project will include the installation of the county’s only all-abilities playground. • Incumbents Roger Edelman and Bob Matthews reclaimed their City Council seats in the Nov. 7 election. Edelman, who was named vice mayor in November, took 35 percent of the vote, while Matthews trailed just behind him with 34.7 percent of the vote. They defeated challengers Thomas Christy and Joseph Pacelli.  A proposed plan to build a joint-use Seminole Welcome Center with the Seminole Chamber of Commerce at Waterfront Park, located at 10400 Park Blvd., was derailed after the city learned grant restrictions from the state would make it dif cult to build on that property. At the council’s Nov. 28 meeting, it was revealed that the chamber and the Edward J. and Vivian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation, which is providing $500,000 to fund construction of the center, are considering other properties throughout the city that would be a better t for the building with less restrictions. The council voted unanimously to return any funds that had been released to the city by the trust, minus the funds used to appraise Waterfront Park, and to nullify any agreement between the city and the Luries.Year marked end for water tower We Will Be Closed December 23 through January 1, 2018.

County 9A TBN, December 28, 2017 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersA show of faith with voters overwhelmingly approving 10 more years of Penny for Pinellas along with a successful test of the county’s emergency response system during Hurricane Irma has county leaders thankful that 2017 is ending with a positive trend. Nearly 83 percent of the county’s registered voters said yes Nov. 7 to the referendum question to extend the 1-percent infrastructure sales tax, better known as Penny for Pinellas. A lot had been riding on the election. The renewal extends the Penny for 10 years, from 2020-2030, and is expected to bring in $2 billion to fund long-term capital improvement projects in the county as its 24 municipalities. After the vote, Commissioner Ken Welch expressed his thanks. “Tonight, Pinellas voters af rmed the value of the Penny for Pinellas and made a strong commitment to a safe and sustainable community for years to come,” he said. Voters first approved the Penny for Pinellas in 1989 and have subsequently renewed it three times to continue funding for countywide projects. Penny money pays for about 70 percent of the cost of the county’s governmental capital projects. Some of the countywide projects planned for the years 2020-2030 include: North County, which includes Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Safety Harbor and Oldsmar.  East Lake Library expansion.  Dunedin Causeway Bridge.  Beckett Bridge replacement projects.  Flood control projects in Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs and other areas.  Road enhancements, including East Lake Road, Forest Lakes Boulevard, Anclote Road and others.  Wall Springs Park expansion. Mid County, which includes Clearwater, Largo, Seminole, Belleair and Belleair Bluffs.  Belcher Road/Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard intersection project.  Road enhancement projects, including Starkey Road, 102nd Avenue and 126th Avenue.  Seminole youth sports facilities  Stormwater/drainage enhancements across the community.  County park facility infrastructure  Animal Services facility upgrades. South County, which includes St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Gulfport, South Pasadena and Kenneth City.  Lealman recreation center.  Lealman ood prevention projects.  Joe’s Creek water quality projects.  San Martin Boulevard Bridge replacement.  Roadway enhancements to 22nd Avenue South, 62nd Avenue North and other roads.  Regional stormwater systems to prevent oodwater from entering the sewer system. Gulf Beaches  Gulf Boulevard enhancement projects.  Fort De Soto Visitor Center.  Tierra Verde community center.  Drainage/stormwater projects.  Public safety equipment. In addition, the Penny will help fund construction of new trails to and between the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, Duke Energy Trail, Tri-County Trail and Coast-to-Coast Trail, including gaps in a planned 70-mile loop around the county. County leaders also touted investments of Penny money into hurricane preparedness after Hurricane Irma passed by as a Category 2 on Sept. 1011. Widespread damage was reported throughout the county and tons of debris was left behind. However, thanks to $133 million in Penny money spent since 2010, emergency management staff and rst responders had two hurricanehardened buildings where they could take shelter and stand ready to assist the public before, during and after the storm. The biggest investment, $82.3 million, paid for the 208,403-square-foot Public Safety Complex, which opened in 2014 in a non-evacuation zone at 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo. The ve-building complex, built to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds, houses the sheriff’s Administration Building, a regional 911 center, emergency operations center, vehicle maintenance building and a central energy plant. The second investment of $28 million paid for an emergency responders building, which opened in 2010, at 22211 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater. It also was designed to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds. Other Penny investments toward hurricane preparedness include $3 million to harden the Animal Services building, $20 million for emergency communications towers and an additional 9,614 shelter spaces. Widespread electrical outages that lasted for about a week had Duke Energy on the hot seat after Irma. Nearly 500,000 of the county’s customers were without power right after the storm. Pinellas County was one of the hardest hit areas. The outages caused problems with traf c lights. Lack of air conditioning at the county’s facilities that serve the elderly was another major problem. Power outages at pump stations meant residents had to limit water owing into the sewers, so they were asked to postpone doing laundry, running dishwashers and ushing toilets. Harry Sideris, president of Duke Energy Florida, said that Hurricane Irma was the most devastating hurricane in the company’s history. It affected 1.3 million of its 1.8 million customers in Florida and affected all 35 counties where Duke provides service. The response to the outages was consequently the largest mobilization in the company’s history. In October, Sideris updated the county commission on some of the measures Duke had taken and planned to take to improve its response to major events such as Hurricane Irma. Since 2004, DEF has invested more than $2 billion to harden its electrical system, he said. The investments include “self-healing technology” that allows the grid to “self-identify” problems and react to them by isolating those areas of rerouting power. He admitted that a better job could have been done in some areas, including customer communication. He also said places where lines were located in trees or on private property proved the most challenging. Hurricane season ended Nov. 30 and preparations are already beginning for next season, which begins June 1. The 2017 season produced 17 named storms of which 10 became hurricanes including six major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5) – including the rst two major hurricanes to hit the continental U.S. in 12 years. Thanks to lessons learned during Hurricane Irma, of cials say they will be better prepared in the future. Another good reason to celebrate. Commission Chair Janet Long listed a few other accomplishments during the commission’s last meeting of the year on Dec. 12, including the commissioner’s decision to up the Health Department millage rate so every public school could have a full-time nurse. Other items on the list were:  31 updated kennels at Animal Services.  New committee for persons with disabilities.  Designation as a Purple Heart County.  Designation as an Age Friendly County.  New app Ready Pinellas.  2.1 billion pounds of recycling, giving the county the top rate in the state for the second year.  Record season at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport.  Bed tax collections of nearly $54.8 million – an 11 percent increase over 2016. “It’s been a great year,” Long said.

12A Viewpoints TBN, December 28, 2017As this year ends it’s pleasant to believe that humankind has made some advances. We want to feel we’re a little bit ahead of the game, at least in a few categories. Following is a brief recap of some of the discoveries made about Americans (and others) during the past year. (Full disclosure: my source for most of what follows is the Dec. 22/29 issue of “The Week, my all-time favorite news magazine. This issue summarizes 2017 in dozens of ways.) ON THE HEALTH FRONT: Get a dog, and you will have a lower risk of heart disease and premature death. So says a Swedish study of 3.4 million persons. If you also eat chile peppers on a regular basis, you will be (or would have been) 13 percent less likely to die than nonchile pepper eaters during the test period. Even better for you, perhaps, is your coffee habit. During a 16-year study period researchers found that persons who drink two to four cups a day (decaf or regular) were 18 percent less Have you never married? Then you may be 42 percent more likely to be a victim of dementia. This according to 15 separate studies involving 800,000 persons. Possible reasons: Other health notes, in no special order:  If you are between ages 50 and 71 and you eat a lot of red meat, you are boosting (by 26 percent) the chance that you will die of eight major diseases. Or at least one of them.  Spending too much time (more than two hours a day) on social media can make you feel lonely.  Likewise, too much time playing football can badly damage your brain. Of 111 NFL players who donated their brains to science, all but one were found to have CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a disease that causes the brain to waste away.  Tattoo ink may contain harmful levels of assorted metals.  Keeping secrets can result in sleep loss, stress and other undesirables. So said Columbia University researchers who asked secretkeepers to talk about their experiences. The lead investigator said the participants actually behaved as if they were burdened by physical weight.  Another bad habit is TV binge-watching. Researchers in the USA and Belgium studied 423 young adults who watched back-to-back episodes of their favorite shows. A result was a 98 percent higher risk for poor sleep. I should insert a cautionary note here. Please don’t base any of your personal habits on the ndings I’ve listed above. They probably have some merit, but history has shown that experts are often mistaken. If you don’t believe that, just talk to scientists who, 50 years ago, told us that global warming is a stupid idea set forth by pessimists. Along with scientific research, polling has become a source of information about you, me, our country and many other things. Following is a random listing of poll results during 2017:  Americans are stressed and troubled. Most of us (59 percent) think we’re at the lowest point in our country’s history. A slightly higher percentage blame President Trump for this situation. But his backers are rock solid. One out of ve Americans (22 percent) say Trump would still have their support even if he shot someone on Manhattan’s Fifth Ave.  Will North Korea start a nuclear attack on the USA? Yes, say 73 percent of the persons who were asked. A slightly higher percentage (76) think the U.S. may take part in a nuclear war within the next three years. Almost half of all Americans are afraid to travel overseas, because of the threat of terrorism.  Could a worldwide epidemic of yet unknown origins turn people into zombies? Yes, said 28 percent of interviewees.  Is same-sex marriage acceptable? Yes, replied 60 percent of persons interviewed in an NBC-Wall Street Journal poll.  One-third of Americans fear they may one day lose their jobs to robots. Speaking of which: 24 percent of men say they’d consider jumping into bed with a robot.  Cancer patients began to treat their disease by using their own cells.  To all of my 38 Faithful Readers and fellow staffers at TBNweekly.com I send sincere wishes for an enjoyable holiday season and a memorable 2018. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net. Largo is looking pretty good for being almost 113 years old. We’re a little older, and a little wiser, but we’re certainly not your grandmother’s Largo anymore. The city is committed to community revitalization and we know that means that we have to be focused on redevelopment for the long haul. Downtown areas and residential neighborhoods that are facing challenging issues require us, as a community, to take a long-term view of economic recovery and reinvestment. We need every tool in the toolbox that we can get to accomplish this important work. We must continue working strategically and methodically on our redevelopment goals and objectives. This past year, we saw exciting changes in the city’s community redevelopment area. Deteriorated apartments on West Bay Drive were demolished to make way for new investment. The construction of a new, 29-unit apartment building was completed on Ridge Road and will serve the burgeoning medical arts district, and our Community Redevelopment Agency inherited a weedlled lot from the Florida Department of Transportation and transformed it into a beautiful pocket park. CRAs are a planning and financing tool created by local governments to revitalize targeted areas that have been neglected or forgotten. Cities use this tool to breathe new life into communities through projects such as roadway and infrastructure improvements, building renovations, and business development and property improvement grants. The money for improvements is funded through tax increment funding, not state or federal dollars. Tax increment nancing is an existing property tax revenue, not an additional tax. When a property’s value in the CRA increases incrementally as a result of private and public investment, tax increment funds are re-invested into that speci c CRA – right back where the property taxes were originally generated. Largo’s CRA was not created in a vacuum. It was established after significant community outreach, public hearings, planning, and with the consent and approval of the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners. Largo’s CRA Board is made up of our City Commission, and we have a citizens’ advisory board to advise and weigh in on CRA matters. The CRA works hard to ensure that it is in compliance with reporting requirements designed to ensure government accountability and transparency. As local elected of cials, the commission ensures transparency so as to assure city residents that the CRA is a good steward of the public trust. The CRA plans are living, public documents with strategies created by the community (the people) with a shared vision for their neighborhood. This legislative session, state legislators have introduced proposed laws to limit how cities and counties can use this important redevelopment tool. Tallahassee is only in session for 90 days a year, but local government is responsible to its constituents 365 days a year. So, long after House and Senate committee hearings have concluded, after the lights go off in the Chamber hallways, we will be here – day-in and dayout – serving the needs of our community. My challenge to Florida’s Legislature is this; let’s continue the good work of revitalizing communities across Florida. Don’t take away this important tool or weaken its ability to work well for cities and counties. CRAs in our community and around the State are working well; let’s not x something that isn’t broken.

LETTERS City of Seminole failed to serve residentsRe: City Council turns down rezoning request for low-income housing project,’ Dec. 21 Editor: Designated affordable housing does not exist within the city of Seminole. The city removed the incentives for affordable housing from their code in March 2017. Designated affordable housing rents do not uctuate above the identi ed percentages of income levels, unlike market rate rental property. As such, the property remains affordable regardless of the market pressures we see in rental property today. Affordable rental property is one of the greatest needs facing Florida communities today. Pinellas County commissioners conduct workshops on how best to incentivize and attract good developers to provide services that will serve our most fragile residents There is a documented need for affordable housing within the city of Seminole limits; this project was the best use for this site – a new apartment building, professionally managed, resident background checks, seniors only. Given the denial, PCHA can build 65 units by right. The need also exists for drug rehabilitation, veterans housing, homeless housing to name a few of the services PCHA provides. The city of Seminole missed an opportunity to identify 1) a taxable development for their most fragile residents – xed income seniors 2) to mitigate the existing environmental issues on the property and 3) to remove the Pinellas County consent order that encumbers this property. All communities bene t from a healthy mix of age groups, ethnicity and education. Diversity creates a functional community for the bene t of all. The city failed in its mission to serve all of its residents. Dale Johnson Director of Development & Construction, Primericagroup. Top CIA spook looks back to 2016WASHINGTON – Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA, became a political animal in August 2016 when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This month, he came to grips with the consequences of that decision – that it might have played into President Donald Trump’s distrust of the intelligence community. It is possible, he told the Review Journal, “I played a role in that.” Back to last year. In an opinion piece in The New York Times, Morell not only endorsed Clinton, he also warned that, to the eyes of an intelligence analyst, candidate Trump could be considered “an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation” whom Russian President Vladimir Putin had co opted by playing to Trump’s demanding ego. When that impression was reinforced by Trump’s description of a phone call with Putin on Thursday: “It was great. He said very nice things about what I’ve done for this country in terms of the economy, and then he said also some negative things in terms of what’s going on elsewhere.” In an interview this month with Politico’s Susan Glasser, Morell did not describe his Clinton endorsement as a mistake. Even knowing what he knows now, he said, he could not say with certainty that he would not do it again. But he did say, “I don’t think I fully thought through the implications.” It was an interview that generated Beltway buzz. Morell, who served as CIA deputy director under President Barack Obama, proposed that people put themselves in Trump’s shoes – and recognize the reasons Trump has to suspect those charged with guarding American security. First, Trump saw a former CIA director (Morell) and former director of the National Security Agenda (Michael Hayden) criticizing him and his policies. Then he became the GOP nominee and received his rst intelligence brie ng. Within 48 hours of that, there were leaks criticizing the disruptive behavior of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn with briefers. Trump won in November and was supposed to get a daily brie ng. “And he doesn’t,” Morell told Politico. “And within a few days, there’s leaks about how he’s not taking the brie ng. So he must have thought ... ‘Who are these guys? Are these guys out to get me? Is this a political organization?” In a follow-up interview this week, Morell told the Review Journal that “the intelligence community is not political,” and noted that he did not endorse Clinton until three years after he left Langley. OK, but what about the leaks? Morell referred to leaks about Flynn’s behavior. “So you don’t know whether it’s people in the brie ng who leaked it or when they went back to their bosses after the brie ng and gave them the download, whether their bosses did it or whether that information spread to the White House or other places in the government” where people could leak information gleaned third hand, he said. Morell believes that Trump thinks the intelligence community was behind the leak. Morell does not because intelligence staffers have to take regular polygraphs during which they are asked if they leaked information to the media. “Most leaks do not come out of the intelligence community for that reason,” he said. Wherever they originated, Morell points out that the Flynn leak did not involve classified material – so it wasn’t a crime. Morell explained, “It’s inappropriate to leak that? Absolutely. Is it a crime? No way.” Morell, now a CBS News contributor, says the intelligence community put so much emphasis on ghting terrorism that it was late to see the threat posed by Moscow in the 2016 election. He would not be surprised, he told Politico, if special counsel Robert Mueller concludes the Trump campaign did not break the law in its dealings with Russia. If evidence exists, investigative reporters should have uncovered it by now, he added. Morell talked with the Review Journal in part because he was disappointed that many of the stories missed his most important point in his interview with Glasser. His big fear these days are the divisions in this country, and the news media’s place in the schism. “I think the biggest threat to the United States is us,” he said. At his son’s urging, Morell read a book about former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. After the strongman’s election, he said, the Venezuelan news media “becomes the political opposition and thereby it loses all its credibility with the Venezuelan people.” He fears the same thing is happening in American journalism as well. When he picks up newspapers, Morell said, “I see a lot of bias. I’m not surprised the president sees all that and (decides) that the media are out to get him.” Morell concluded, “What’s interesting to me is that nobody in the media picked that up.” Contact Debra J.

TBN, December 28, 2017 Coming attractions: 2018Merger means Disney likely to dominate the box of ce for the foreseeable future By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersThe Walt Disney Company – which already owns Marvel Studios and Lucas lm – announced recently that it will acquire a broad swathe of assets from 21st Century Fox. Yes, that means Disney will recover all those stray Marvel properties that had eluded them, including The X-Men, Deadpool and The Fantastic Four. It also means Disney will be overseeing the upcoming sequels to “Avatar.” What does that mean? In 2018, everything’s coming up Disney. Well, almost everything. As 2017 comes to a close, it’s time to take a look at next year’s slate Hollywood follies. Before jumping into that long list, we should examine 2017’s most successful endeavors. As of Dec. 26, the top domestic box of ce moneymaker is “Beauty and the Beast,” which has made $504 million domestically according to Box Of ce Mojo, a website that tracks box of ce revenue. It is followed by “Wonder Woman,” with $412 million; and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” with $397 million. Looking at the chart for worldwide grosses, “Beauty and the Beast” remains in the top spot with $1.26 billion. Taking second place is “The Fate of the Furious” with $1.23 billion. “Despicable Me 3” comes in at No. 3 with $1.0 billion. Other films making it into the top 10 for domestic box of ce totals include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “It,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Despicable Me 3,” “Logan” and “The Fate of the Furious.” Five of the top 10 domestic grossing lms leap off the pages of comic books and feature superheroes. Only two family-friendly films – both rated PG – made the top 10 this year: “Beauty and the Beast” and “Despicable Me 3.” Conversely, only two R-rated lms reached the top 10: “It” and “Logan.” Those trends will likely continue in the coming year. Following is a look at 15 of the most anticipated lms of 2018.‘Black Panther’Release date: Feb. 16 Director: Ryan Coogler Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis Genre: Comic book, action Marvel Studios delves deeper into the story of T’Challa and his kingdom, Wakanda. Black Panther is one of the most iconic characters to come out of the Marvel Bullpen during the Silver Age, making his rst appearance in 1966, in issue 52 of Fantastic Four. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Led by Chadwick Boseman in the title role, the upcoming lm boasts an incredibly talented cast and is generating as much excitement among fans as “Avengers: In nity War,” which also hits theaters in 2018.‘Annihilation’ Release date: Feb. 23 Director: Alex Garland Starring: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac Genre: Thriller, action, science ction and adventure Paramount Pictures will release this science fantasy/action/horror lm based on the novel of the same name by author and literary critic Jeff VanderMeer, a resident of Tallahassee and three-time World Fantasy Award winner. “Annihilation” is the rst book in VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy. The story follows an expedition into an environmental disaster zone that has already claimed many victims.‘A Wrinkle in Time’Release date: March 9 Director: Ava DuVernay Starring: Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Chris Pine, Zach Gali anakis, Andre Holland, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard, Will McCormack and Michael Pena Genre: Family, science fantasy If you attended public school during or after the late 1960s, chances are some teacher introduced you to “A Wrinkle in Time.” This 1962 science fantasy novel written by Madeleine L’Engle won the Newberry Medal along with several other prestigious awards. It is long overdue for a serious cinematic adaptation – although Disney did made an earlier attempt in 2003 with a less-than-spectacular TV movie that even the author disliked. This time around, Walt Disney Studios is showing far more respect for the subject matter, tapping director Ava DuVernay to helm the project.‘Tomb Raider’Release date: March 16 Director: Roar Uthaug Starring: Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Sir Derek Jacobi and Kristin Scott Thomas Genre: Action and adventure Do we really need to reboot this franchise? I don’t think so … but Hollywood movie moguls never ask for my opinion – so here we are. Let’s consider the history: “Tomb Raider,” the video game developed by Core Design and published by Eidos Interactive, was originally released in 1996. At the time, it was considered one of the greatest video games ever made. It generated two lms – “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” (2001) and “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” (2003) – in which Angelina Jolie starred in the title role. In 2013, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix releaed “Tomb Raider,” the 10th title in the game franchise. The cinematic reboot is supposedly based on this release.‘Paci c Rim Uprising’Release date: March 23 Director: Steven S. DeKnight Starring: John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day Genre: Action and science ction In this corner, we have super-sized sea monsters (also known as interdimensional kaiju). In the opposite corner, we have giant humanoid robots (also known as Jaegers). And … ght! It may be a bit of a surprise that this franchise managed to get the Photo courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOSChadwick Boseman stars in “Black Panther,” the next lm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

TBN, December 28, 2017 green-light for a sequel. The rst lm – 2013’s “Paci c Rim” – didn’t do very well domestically, earning $101 million, a little more than half the lm’s production budget of $190 million. Overseas, “Paci c Rim” was a bigger box of ce draw. Foreign revenue exceeded $300 million. ‘The New Mutants’ Release date: April 13 Director: Josh Boone Starring: Charlie Heaton, Anya Taylor Joy, Maisie Williams, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt and Alice Braga Genre: Action, science ction and adventure Look everybody: The X-Men had a baby! Well, a spin-off, so to speak, featuring an ensemble cast of teenage mutant superheroes. In the publishing world, The New Mutants can be traced back to Marvel Graphic Novel No. 4. Created by Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod, the original team consisted of Cannonball, Karma, Mirage, Sunspot and Wolfsbane. Some of these characters will appear in the lm. ‘Avengers: In nity War’Release date: May 4 Directors: Anthony Russo and Joe Russo Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Paul Rudd and Josh Brolin Genre: Action, science ction and adventure‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’Release date: May 25 Directors: Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Ron Howard Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Michael K. Williams, Ian Kenny, Warwick Davis, Clint Howard and Paul Bettany Genre: Action, science fantasy and adventure The good news is that the screenplay was written by Lawrence “The Empire Strikes Back” Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. The not-so-good news is that the first two directors on the project – Phil Lord and Chris Miller – apparently got sacked over “creative differences.” The unexpected-but-probably-promising news is that Lucas lm tapped Ron “Opie” Howard to come to the rescue. The hope is that the lm will have a space Western feel to it as it gives audiences a glimpse at a young roguish smuggler before that fateful meeting in the Mos Eisley Cantina that drew him into the rebellion. Am I the only person thinking about re-reading Brian Daley’s trilogy “Han Solo at Stars’ End,” “Han Solo’s Revenge” and “Han Solo and the Lost Legacy”? ‘Ocean’s 8’Release date: June 8 Director: Gary Ross Starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Richard Armitage, James Corden, Nora ‘Awkwafina’ Lum, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter Genre: Action and adventure OK, let’s start at the beginning because this is complicated. In 1960, Lewis Milestone directed “Ocean’s 11,” a heist lm featuring no less than ve members of the Rat Pack, including Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop. The story follows a group of veterans who are recruited into a scheme to rob ve different Las Vegas casinos in one night. Fast forward to 2001. Steven Soderbergh directed a remake of the 1960 lm, calling it “Ocean’s Eleven.” That lm starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy Garca and Julia Roberts. Two sequels – Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and Ocean’s Thirteen (2007) – followed. Fast forward again. “Ocean’s 8” is being described as both a sequel to and an all-female reboot of Soderbergh’s trilogy. ‘The Incredibles 2’Release date: June 15 Director: Brad Bird Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner and Samuel L. Jackson Genre: Action, animation, adventure and family It’s about time, Pixar. Seriously: Why did it take 14 years to get back to this franchise? By comparison, over a 15-year period, three Toy Story movies were released. Over a nine-year period, three Cars movies were released – along with the spin-off DisneyToon lms “Planes” and “Planes: Fire & Rescue.” Maybe the executives at Disney-Pixar didn’t think that audiences were interested in superhero movies – because, there are so few of those around these days. Also, can I just go ahead and ask for a mash-up between The Incredibles and Fantastic Four?‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’Release date: June 22 Director: J.A. Bayona Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum Genre: Thriller, action, science ction and adventure Following are ways in which this movie differs from others in the franchise: 1. It is about dinosaurs that live on an island; and, 2. The dinosaurs occasionally devour people (with all the running and the screaming and the “somebody save my baby!”) So, actually, maybe it is somewhat similar to the earlier lms. It’s OK – they’re dinosaurs. Who gets tired of watching dinosaurs? Maybe this is all leading to a dinosaur apocalypse. Or maybe the dinosaurs will get sick and become zombie dinosaurs. It could be titled “Jurassic World: The Stomping Dead.” If anyone needs a script for that, contact me.‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’Release date: July 6 Director: Peyton Reed Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Michael Douglas, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins and Randall Park Genre: Action and adventure Marvel Studios continues a busy release schedule in with its third offering of 2018 – and the 20th lm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this sequel to 2015’s “Ant-Man,” the heroes are asked to rescue Hank Pym’s wife from the quantum realm, which is a microverse contained within a spacewall which can only be breached at certain points. Too sciencey? Remember that episode of “Mork and Mindy” when Mork takes a cold capsule to shrink his nasal membranes and ends up shrinking himself into an alternate universe? There you go.‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’Release date: Nov. 2 Director: Simon Kinberg Starring: Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jessica Chastain, Alison Blaire, Lamar Johnson and Evan Peters Genre: Action and science ction Simon Kinberg directs this adaptation of Chris Claremont’s “The Dark Phoenix Saga.” The lm will be set in the 1990s following the defeat of Apocalypse. ‘Aquaman’Release date: Dec. 21 Director: James Wan Starring: Jason Momoa, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Ludi Lin, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman Genre: Action and adventure Jason Momoa has already succeeded in making Aquaman cool – and that was no simple task. For Gen X kids raised “The Super Friends” and the Bronze Age run of “Justice League of America,” Traditionally, Aquaman was generally the superhero who took the call whenever a ship was off course or when Sandy and Bud Ricks misplaced Flipper. If you were to rank undersea-dwelling comic book and cartoon characters, Marvel’s Namor the Sub-Mariner and Disney’s King Triton would take the top spots. Poor Aquaman would be tied with Hanna-Barbera’s Jabberjaw. Momoa changed all that, giving audiences a Conan-like interpretation of Aquaman. By the way, Momoa’s portrayal of Conan wasn’t as compelling.‘Mary Poppins Returns’Release date: Dec. 25 Director: Bob Marshall Starring: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Dick Van Dyke, Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Angela Lansbury Genre: Fantasy and musical When “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was released in December 2017, a bunch of whiny naysayers ooded social media with scorn and derision. Among their ridiculous complaints was the frequently repeated pronouncement that the new franchise installment was so bad that it “ruined” their childhood by poisoning their beloved Star Wars nostalgia. There is nothing reasonable nor respectable about these juvenile ravings. However, if Walt Disney Studios isn’t extremely careful with “Mary Poppins Returns,” it could totally ruin my childhood.

Opening this weekend ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ features Bening; Day-Lewis stars in ‘Phantom Thread’ Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersIn the closing days of 2017, only a handful of movies will nd their way into theaters. While Hollywood has nothing slated to open in wide release this weekend, the following lms will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.‘Phantom Thread’Genre: Drama Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps Director: Paul Thomas Anderson Rated: R Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the con rmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a xture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he nds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest lm, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. “Phantom Thread” is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.‘In the Fade’Genre: Drama Cast: Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Nuan Acar and Johannes Krisch Director: Fatih Akin Rated: R Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice. Photo courtesy of MAGNOLIA PICTURESDiane Kruger in “In the Fade,” a Magnolia Pictures release.

Now, Rollins is offering an intimate evening as he tells the fascinating stories behind the photos he has taken, from Baghdad to Timbuktu. “For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera,” Rollins said on his website. “Not always easy but always worth it. Many of the photos have stories behind them. Now and then, I gather several images, show them to an audience and tell those stories.” Rollins is said to have a vast archive of photographs. As a keen photographer, he will be bringing stories from travel all over the world, including the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, South America and Antarctica. In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. “Rollins is many things,” said the Washington Post, “Diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humourist, even motivational speaker … his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.” Entertainment Weekly’s list includes “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” TV Guide has more concisely called him a “Renaissance Man.” If Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be “workaholic.” When he’s not traveling, Rollins prefers a to keep a relentless schedule full of work, with gigs as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist and TV show host to name a few of the roles that keep his schedule full. Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, favoring roadless-traveled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan and Iran. Rollins currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.’s renowned NPR af liate KCRW, in addition to writing weekly columns for the LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia.

This elective starts with the fundamentals of sketch writing with an emphasis on creating a cohesive show. Rather than writing in isolation, we simulate a writer’s room: pitching sketches, slinging ideas back and forth, writing drafts, doing readthroughs, cuts and edits, and narrowing focus to perfect the top sketches. This class is part of our ProLab Series: unique elective opportunities for intermediate to advanced improvisers to explore a range of skills that hone improv technique and artistry. Sketch Comedy can still be taken as a oneoff experience. We recommend, but do not require completion of Improv Level 2 (or equivalent experience). Sketch Comedy will culminate with a performance of an original sketch comedy show at our Student Improv Festival on March 25.

6B Entertainment TBN, December 28, 2017Art on Main StreetDowntown Dunedin kicks off the new year with open-air showcase for local, national artists Jan. 6-7 By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersDUNEDIN – The rst full weekend of 2018 will bring art lovers to downtown Dunedin. Howard Alan Events, producer of the nation’s nest juried art shows, will present the 21st annual Downtown Dunedin, running Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 6-7, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Main Street. Admission is free. More than 100 of the nation’s top artists will line the Main Street on these two days, giving visitors and residents of Dunedin an opportunity to start the new year by adding some beauty to their lives. Fine artists will transform Main Street into a rst class outdoor art gallery displaying creations, gallery-style, for attendees to peruse. According to the event organizer, the Downtown Dunedin Art Festival represents original artwork, handmade in America and selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process also ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the event. Over the last 20 years, the Festival has become a hugely anticipated event, with travel arrangements booked in advance for those looking to stroll amidst life-size sculptures, spectacular paintings, one-of-akind jewels, photography, ceramics and more from the exhibitors. Each year the Downtown Dunedin Art Festival has grown, with thousands attending the free event during its two-day run. Always pet-friendly, the event is the perfect opportunity to shop and stroll during Florida’s most beautiful weather, and discover why the nation’s top artists have chosen Dunedin as the destination for the past 20 years. Among this year’s participating artists is a Pinellas County resident. Alann J. Boatright – known in the art world as Alann J. – lives in Pinellas Park. He is considered “the master of the machine.” His unique artistic passion started early when his father caught him drawing something on the church bulletin board. Instead of getting into trouble, Alann’s dad was amazed at his son’s accurate drawing of a ‘57 Chevy. Alann’s genre of photo-realism paintings is made entirely unique through his depiction of robots in place of humans. Each original creation is a sly commentary on modern life told through mechanical creatures. Bonnie Keane lives a stone’s throw from the Tampa Bay area. The New Port Richey artist has perfected a unique style of painting she calls “Fluid Art.” Putting her physics and chemistry degrees to use, Bonnie’s Fluidz Designz are created using acrylic combined with her own “pouring” medium, and manipulated using a variety of brush work techniques. Bonnie’s Fluidz abstract works can be seen in galleries throughout the state of Florida. Patrons are also able to commission her designs onto leggings, phone cases, travel mugs and other portable art-wear pieces. The festival also draws artists from all over the United States. San Francisco glass artist Heidi Barron has been working with glass as an artistic medium for 35 years. Her husband Paul joined with her to add his creative input and thus, Barron Glass Design was created. The two travel with their “mascot” Hunter to juried art shows around the country. The glass process is done through cold work (cold fusion). They use an ultraviolet bonding system to create the strong, geometric shapes. Photos courtesy of HOWARD ALAN EVENTS“Flight of the Heron,” Chad Anderson. Anderson’s sculpture is hand built, torch cut, hammer raised, brazed, patinaed, and incralaced copper and bronze sculpture.
