DUNEDIN Â– A few years ago a local brewer said that the city had become a destination for craft brewery lovers. Judging by whatÂ’s present today, his words rang true. Over the past year or so, several new additions have joined established favorites like Seventh Sun, Dunedin House of Beers and the granddaddy of them all, the Dunedin Brewery. The downtown district features seven breweries and a distillery, all within a one-mile radius, with each offering a distinct style and atmosphere as well as a wide variety of beers and spirits. But while the craft beer industry has been booming locally and nationwide for the past several years, the abundance of so many breweries in a small area of a relatively small town begs Volume 39, No. 14 January 4, 2018 www.TBNweekly.com Features Business . . . . . . . . . . . .9A Classi eds . . . . . . . . .10-13B Community . . . . . . . . . .3-5A Entertainment . . . . . . . . .1-9B Faith & family . . . . . . . . . .6A Health . . . . . . . . . . . . .7A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .11A Pets . . . . . . . . . . . . . .9B Schools . . . . . . . . . . . .8A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . . .10ACall 727-397-5563 For News & Advertising Honor Flight seeking vets for upcoming D.C. trips Photo courtesy of HONOR FLIGHT of WEST CENTRAL FLORIDAHonor Flight of West Central Florida is seeking veterans for free trips to Washington, D.C. By JEFF ROSENFIELD TBN Correspondent DUNEDIN Â– Most people would think an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., to visit the districtÂ’s historic war memorials, complete with a free orientation session, chartered ight and a personal assistant, would be an easy sell, for even the most inexperienced salesman. Nevertheless, Honor Flight of West Central Florida of cials are having a hard time giving away these once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The local chapter of the national organization, which was founded in Ohio in 2005 to honor World War II veterans by ying them to see the con ictÂ’s memorial in the nationÂ’s capital, has experienced a drop-off in signups for the flights in recent years, according to HFWCF fundraising committee chair John Tornga. Â“The number (of World War II veterans) is shrinking at an alarming rate,Â” said Tornga, a Vietnam veteran and Dunedin city commissioner. Â“Many of them still donÂ’t know about this service, or forgot, or think they donÂ’t Dunedin A buzz for beer A buzz for beer By TAMPA BAY NEWSPAPERS Â Staff members In 2017, 86 of these small-production breweries were open in the Tampa Bay region with more than 30 doing business in Pinellas, according to Dan Bjerk, senior international trade specialist for the U.S. Department of Commerce, who is working on a new project to help breweries expand their market. The industry is growing rapidly, which is good news for owners and local communities, as more people begin to covet the taste of beer produced at microbreweries and fall in love with the creativity of craft beer. The BrewerÂ’s Association de nes microbreweries as those that produce less than 15,000 barrels of beer a year with 75 percent or more of its beer sold off-site. A brewpub is a restaurant-brewery that sells 25 percent or more of its beer on site. Craft brewers are Â“small, independent and traditional,Â” per the Brewer AssociationÂ’s de nition. They produce 6 million barrels of beer or less. TheyÂ’re innovative. They use traditional ingredients but often incorporate non-traditional ingredients to create unique tastes. These new smaller breweries are making a difference in downtown and industrial areas throughout the county in a variety of ways. Forward Pinellas has been researching how local municipalities have been revising their zoning codes to accommodate the needs of local brewers. Brett Burks, Forward Pinellas program planner, talked about some of what the agency has discovered in a March 7 blog post. Breweries combine commercial and industrial uses. Brewpubs are best suited for areas zoned for retail uses that allow manufacturing. Microbreweries need a location that allows light manufacturing uses with a smaller retail component. Brewpubs are great ts for downtown and commercial areas near bars and other restaurants, and microbreweries, which have a taproom or tasting room, are suited for commercial or industrial areas, as well as transitional areas between downtown and industrial lands. Alicia Parinello, another Forward Pinellas program planner working on the brewery project, said Forward Pinellas was working to make sure breweries were included in the countywide plan. The agency is educating county commissioners and municipal leaders, as well as working with local governments on ways to attract microbreweries to their As the popularity of beer produced by smaller breweries continues to grow, local communities are bene ting in a number of ways. Pinellas County is no exception. Florida had 195 craft breweries and was ranked 10th in the nation at the end of 2016, according to the BrewerÂ’s Association. As of 2015, about one-third of the stateÂ’s microbreweries were in Tampa Bay and about 20 percent of those were in Pinellas County, according to statistics compiled by Forward Pinellas.>> Microbreweries popping up along the beachesTREASURE ISLAND Â– In October the Sea Dog Brew Pub opened in Treasure Island. It followed others opening along the beaches: MastryÂ’s in St. Pete Beach and Mad Beach Brewery in Madeira Beach. There could be another to follow in Indian Rocks Beach if the hopes of city of cials are realized. Robin Sollie of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce sees a trend, and she says it is a positive for the economy of the beach communities. Â“We think it is great to see some of the new brewers coming to the beach,Â” she said. Â“For a long time it was Clearwater and St. Petersburg; now they are coming here.Â” Â“I think it de nitely elevates what we offer from a food and beverage standpoint. As more come on line more and more people will venture out to the beaches to try them out.Â” That is the hope of the of cials of the latest microbrewery to open, the Sea Dog at 9610 Gulf Blvd. >> Dunedin brewery scene has something for everyone See BEACHES, page 4A See DUNEDIN, page 4A See PINELLAS, page 4A See FLIGHT, page 4A VIEWPOINTS Bob DriverSmall towns cannot be labeled good or bad.Â… Page 10A.

Community 3A TBN, January 4, 2018 By MARK SCHANTZ TBN CorrespondentDUNEDIN Â– Like a perfect football play, a suggestion tossed out by Commissioner Maureen Freaney and parlayed into a winning goal by City Manager Jennifer Bramley, put an end to a stalemate over paid parking along Main Street in downtown Dunedin. At the end of last weekÂ’s seven-hour hearing on the downtown parking plan, when a deadlock appeared inevitable, Freaney suggested a plan that went against advice from the cityÂ’s expert parking consultants, but appeared to curry favor with a majority of other commissioners. Consultant, and planning staff advised the city should retain paid parking along downtown Main Street to entice visitors to utilize a city-owned parking lot on Wood Street and a yet-to-be-open parking garage on Douglas Avenue. Freaney said she always felt parking along Main Street and in the downtown core should be a free pleasurable experience for visitors and residents. She suggested the city provide free parking in the downtown core along Main Street, while charging to park at the planned Douglas garage, City Marina and the Wood Street Lot. At least three other board members, Mayor Julie Ward Bujalski and commissioners Deborah Kynes and John Tornga, liked FreaneyÂ’s idea and asked staff to tweak it. During a follow-up meeting, Thursday, Dec. 21, Bramley put FreaneyÂ’s suggestion into play, recommending the city eliminate paid parking along Main Street and in the core downtown area. Under a revised concept, adopted in a 4-1 vote, there will be free, time-enforced, 3-hour parking on Main Street from Bass Boulevard to Marina Plaza, every day from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Paid parking, at a rate of $1.50 an hour, would be in effect Monday thru Friday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and all day Saturday and Sunday, at the soon-to-be-opened Douglas Avenue parking garage, portions of the city marina, and a city-owned lot near Main Street; The Wood Street used to house a Baptist Church and someday may include a parking garage. All other areas around downtown would feature free parking with no enforced time limits. The plan would eliminate the need for a resident or downtown employee parking pass program. Bramley said the new plan would be a positive, user-friendly, experience for visitors to downtown. The revised plan will provide a parking strategy that is simple and consistent, while managing downtown parking; it also will provide a modest revenue stream earmarked for parking only. Â“All revenue collected by the new plan will be used solely for the Downtown Parking Plan,Â” the city manager said. Â“The recommendations have been developed to ensure a positive experience for visitors of downtown by providing convenient free parking, while generating funds to offset the costs incurred with the maintenance of the parking garage and the By BRIAN GOFF TBN CorrespondentINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Â– When people see a CVS sign they may assume they are looking at a pharmacy. In Indian Rocks Beach, not so much. The CVS store in IRB is one of not many stores in the United States that are not pharmacies. They are in fact convenience stores that sell just about everything except prescription drugs. Why the IRB store isnÂ’t a pharmacy may be explained by money. The company, with a 24hour pharmacy about a mile away, may feel that was enough. Company official Stephanie Cunha, of the CVS public relations department in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, in an email pointed to that nearby location as a possible reason why there is no pharmacy in Indian Rocks Beach. Â“There is a 24-hours location with a 24-hour pharmacy just east of the store (in IRB) which is only one mile away,Â” she wrote. Â“Store 188 is located at the corner of Walsingham and Oakhurst in Largo.Â” Cunha also responded to a written question about the future of the IRB store. Â“To our knowledge there are no plans on putting in a pharmacy in this location as it has always been a location without a pharmacy since the building was opened with Eckerd,Â” she wrote. Back in 2004 CVS bought 1,260 Eckerd stores including EckerdÂ’s three distribution centers. The IRB location was one of the acquired stores. Local residents recall there was a pharmacy when it was an EckerdÂ’s; the pharmacy disappeared once CVS took over. Â“Eckerd was a pharmacy when CVS took over, after a while they changed it,Â” said IRB Mayor R.B. Johnson. Â“I used to get my prescriptions lled there.Â” Former Commissioner Terry Hamilton-Wollin remembers a pharmacy at that location as well. Â“When I moved here in 1994 it was an EckerdÂ’s and it was a total pharmacy,Â” she said. Â“When CVS took over they got rid of the pharmacy. It is a big company, and I imagine they did demographic studies and gured out it was just as cost effective if they didnÂ’t keep it.Â” Hamilton-Wollin says even when EckerdÂ’s had a pharmacy in that location it wasnÂ’t her pharmacy of choice, so losing the pharmacy was not an inconvenience to her. Â“It isnÂ’t to me; IÂ’m still able to drive,Â” she said. Â“Others who have disabilities may have some trouble getting off the island to another pharmacy.Â” Hamilton-Wollin said she owns property in South Tampa and the nearest drugstore to it is about the same distance as the nearest drug store to Indian Rocks Beach. She said no one seems to be complaining. Â“IÂ’ve never heard anyone say anything about it in 25 years,Â” she said. Johnson noted that some people have mentioned the lack of a pharmacy to him. Â“Every once in a while, people remark that it is unusual that you have a CVS here that doesnÂ’t have a pharmacy,Â” he said. Â“People are surprised when they move here that it doesnÂ’t have a pharmacy. I guess they look at this as just a little beach store.Â” Like Hamilton-Wollin, Johnson goes across the Walsingham Bridge to have his prescriptions filled. In addition to the CVS, there is a WalgreenÂ’s and a Publix pharmacy at that intersection. Â“It is just five minutes away,Â” he said. Â“It is not a real big inconvenience. Still, if there were a pharmacy here IÂ’d go to that.Â” IRB residents arenÂ’t the only ones with a CVS store that doesnÂ’t include a pharmacy. CVSÂ’ Cunha emailed that there are others, but she couldnÂ’t be speci c as to their locations. Â“I know there are two others in the Tampa area,Â” she wrote in an email. Â“Right now, I can only con rm that there are select stores nationwide that have this format.Â” As time moves on, there could be more such stores popping up. Back in 2006, an industry analyst, Marshal Cohen, talked about the proliferation of drug stores and their function. Â“Drug stores are becoming more like convenience stores,Â” he said. Â“Drug stores are selling a greater variety of products like milk, electronics, toys and even some high-end beauty products. It is not unlike going to a gas station and picking up chips and other consumables.Â” Cohen said the future will continue to see change in the industry. Â“Drug stores are the next growth area in big-box retailing,Â” he said. Â“DonÂ’t be surprised to see drug store operators start to build bigger formats in the future.Â” With that in mind, perhaps the pharmacy-less CVS store in Indian Rocks Beach is not lagging behind; it could in fact be a window into whatÂ’s to come.No pharmacy, no problem in Indian Rocks Beach Indian Rocks Beach Photo by BRIAN GOFFThe CVS Store on Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach is one of the chainÂ’s select stores that doesnÂ’t have a pharmacy.

We want to address it now while theyÂ’re still here.Â” Tornga, an of cer in the Marine Corps who joined the local Honor Flight organization soon after it formed in 2010, said they treat the trips as nal missions for the proud vets. Â“We break it down into three sections: orientation, departure and arrival,Â” he said. Â“We explain the mission on a Saturday, they depart from the airport on Tuesday and return to a huge greeting at the airport three nights later.Â” Â“ItÂ’s a lot to put together, and thereÂ’s a lot of emotion,Â” Tornga added. Â“WeÂ’ve had people buried in their Honor Flight shirts because thatÂ’s their last mission. We give them a three-day pass, and they go on their nal mission to visit the memorials.Â” Honor Flight was originally conceived to reward World War II vets for their service, according to the website. As the organization grew, the trips became elaborate tributes to those who served, complete with private chartered ights, personal caregivers and pomplled Â“welcome homeÂ” parties. Â“They get the attention and respect they deserve the entire time,Â” Tornga said, noting each returning Honor Flight participant is greeted by a highranking military of cial and handed a customized commemorative coin. Â“We escort them in like theyÂ’re kings, and they get applauded so many times they think theyÂ’re celebrities.Â” According to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs statistics, just 558,000 of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II are still alive in 2017. That attrition led Honor Flight to welcome Korean War and Vietnam veterans on trips, a decision fully endorsed by Tornga. Â“To me, all veterans are special,Â” he said. Â“This is a way to honor them for their service and allow them to see the memorials built in their honor, because what they did for us, and gave for us, itÂ’s something we feel compelled to do.Â” Tornga said HFWCFÂ’s goal for 2018 is to reach as many vets as possible to offer them the opportunity to accept their nal mission. Â“We want to make sure every World War II, Korea and Vietnam vet has been approached to have this opportunity, and 2018 is the principal year for us to do that,Â” he said, noting the organization also conducts Honor Flight at Home missions for those vets who canÂ’t travel out of state. Â“The application is online, and itÂ’s not a long process. If you know of someone, please let us know. We really need help so each and every one of them is invited, or at least know theyÂ’re invited, to participate in Honor Flight.Â” For more information on Honor Flight of West Central Florida, visit the organizationÂ’s website at www.honor ightwcf.org. the question: how much is too much of a good thing? Â“ItÂ’s working well right now,Â” Bob Ironsmith, DunedinÂ’s director of economic and housing development, said recently. Â“You have to offer an experience for a successful downtown, and use food and craft breweries as a driver and then offer other activities. ItÂ’s the whole picture Â– parking, walkability, ambience, a good team and merchants who collaborate as a group. We work hard at this, and it seems to be working well right now.Â” Economic development specialist Danny Craig, who recently created a walking guide of the cityÂ’s breweries, said the variety offered at each establishment has helped them successfully coexist. Â“TheyÂ’re all different Â– Dunedin Brewery has music and food, Soggy Bottom has a younger crowd, CaledoniaÂ’s is a bit older,Â” Craig said. Â“Right now, the seven are not hurting the othersÂ’ business. If we were to go to eight, who knows? But right now, they all say the business is good.Â” Checking with brewery owners, it appears that assessment of the cityÂ’s craft beer scene is spot-on. Â“Becoming a part of the cityÂ’s brewing scene was not dif cult,Â” Soggy Bottom Brewing Co. co-owner Andrew Buckingham said. Â“I know in other towns it can be a nightmare to open a competing brewery, with an unfriendly atmosphere and really cutthroat. But Dunedin is not like that. ItÂ’s not a competition here. ItÂ’s a big team. We all get together once a month to discuss what we can do to promote our businesses and talk about upcoming events. We even share extra supplies and ingredients when needed. ItÂ’s a nice relationship we enjoy.Â” Lucas Rizor, one of BuckinghamÂ’s two fellow co-owners, said that despite a few bumps in the road, opening their own brewery has been a great experience. Â“We all worked in town, so we knew what we were getting into,Â” Rizor said, noting he and Buckingham as well as co-owner Carey Lamb all worked in various downtown establishments over the past decade. Â“ThereÂ’s de nitely a learning curve, and weÂ’re still learning the business. But considering we opened right before the summer, and made it through Hurricane Irma, we like where we are right now.Â” In fact, things are progressing so well for the Soggy Bottom owners they said they plan on making some changes to their place as they approach their rst anniversary in a few months. Â“We hope to get a growler machine put in, and we want to put a patio out front,Â” Buckingham said, noting the Main Street brewery is Â“one of the rst things you see coming into downtown.Â” Â“We have to see what the city will let us do,Â” he added. Â“We want to make it look representative of the rest of downtown.Â” When asked why they thought the city could support so many breweries in such a small area, Buckingham and Rizor provided some interesting insight into the issue. Â“The great thing about Pinellas County and Dunedin is we have a great craft beer industry and a steady in ux of visitors,Â” Rizor said. Â“When people go out to dinner, they have one dinner. But when they go out to drink, they have six or seven drinks, so why not go to six or seven places?Â” Â“More places in a small area helps with craft beer tourism,Â” Buckingham added. Â“People who really like craft beer are more likely to go to a city with seven breweries instead of one.Â” Honu Restaurant owner Kimberly Platt, who also serves as president of the Downtown Dunedin Merchants Association, agreed. Â“I love the fact that there are eight breweries and 35,000 residents in Dunedin,Â” the longtime restauranteur and Dunedin resident said. Â“People here like their beer, and each one has their own niche. Every single one is different.Â” For those who say there are too many breweries in town, Platt is ready with a quick answer. Â“When people ask why there are so many I say, Â‘You go visit them all and tell me which one needs to go,Â’Â” she said. Â“They do, then they come back and say they love them all.Â” As Dunedin of cials continue to reshape the face of the downtown district via several new developments, including the Artisan Apartment complex and the planned Courtyard on Main mixed-use development, Ironsmith sees the cityÂ’s collection of breweries playing a vital role in the cityÂ’s economic growth. Â“There is additional retail, food stores and restaurants coming, and we see people wanting to live and come into the downtown,Â” he said. Â“I think we are fortunate to have seven breweries that are doing well, and weÂ’re in a good spot at the moment. The craft beer industry is not a fad. ItÂ’s something thatÂ’s here to say.Â”Â– By Jeff Rosen eldareas through a variety of incentives. She said that through Forward PinellasÂ’ research role, it was able to give advice about adjusting regulations, identifying proper locations and other information based on what had been done in other communities. Staff also can provide technical assistance if needed, especially for municipalities that donÂ’t have their own planning staff. She said there had been a lot of interest from local governments. Â“They want to see what others are doing to attract them,Â” she said. Â“There is an economic bene t to breweries.Â” In fact, breweries are springing up all over the county from Tarpon Springs to St. Pete Beach with a big concentration in downtown St. Petersburg. Parinello said not only are the small breweries bringing a lot of economic growth, they are locating in areas where redevelopment is needed. Owners are taking over rundown spaces and sprucing them up, which is a boost to the entire area. Â“When you renovate older buildings, it increases property values,Â” she said. Local governments gain spaces that generate tax revenue. Â“ItÂ’s a win-win for everybody,Â” she said. Â“IÂ’ve heard a lot of success stories.Â” She said St. Petersburg wasnÂ’t offering incentives because it didnÂ’t have to, but others are offering incentives such as faade grants, historic tax abatements for older properties and off-street parking. The best part is even if the brewery goes out of business, the property has been improved, which makes it more attractive for other businesses to take over.

There is a market for American craft beer even in countries like Germany, which has a big reputation for beer, and a city in China recently had a pub-crawl featuring American craft beer, Bjerk said. Â“The consumer wants something different,Â” he said, which craft beer brewers are producing. He has identi ed four craft brewers that are interested in exporting what they produce outside the country. Two are in Pinellas Â– 3 Daughters Brewing in St. Petersburg and Pair OÂ’ Dice Brewing in Clearwater. He said other local microbreweries had expressed interest in participating but had not yet said yes. However, it is his intent to start with a small core group and build out over time. Â“It is not a closed door,Â” he said. He said that as the core group began getting sales outside the U.S., others would likely become more interested. However, the export market may not be of interest to all local brewers, especially those that want to stay small and those that are interested in offering a brewpub atmosphere. And he admits there is a risk that as larger orders come in, breweries might become Â“less crafty;Â” however, Bjerk believes there is a market outside Florida and the U.S. for anyone who wants to tap into it. HeÂ’s impressed with local brewers and their comaraderie. He said while they are competitors, they are sticking together as a group to promote the industry. Â“I want to bene t that industry,Â” he said.

Rapp has been brewing for 15 years. Â“ItÂ’s been interesting time for us. ThereÂ’s been a lot of growth.Â” Â“When we opened (in 2012), the Tampa Bay area had eight breweries. Now there are more than 80. ThatÂ’s a ten-fold increase.Â” Looking to 2018, Rapp said his company is focusing on its core business model. Â“WeÂ’re focusing on creating small batch, handcrafted beer,Â” he said. Â“Distribution is pretty strong.Â” Rapp focuses on distribution (keg only) in Pinellas, Pasco, Citrus and Hernando counties. They have 25 regular accounts. Â“WeÂ’re producing as much as we can sell. WeÂ’re selling as much as we can produce,Â” Rapp said. However, he sees the market starting Â“to atten off a little bit.Â” Â“We were already seeing it in 2017. ThatÂ’s going to require some innovation. ItÂ’s going to require people really stick to their product. ItÂ’s going to be challenging for everybody.Â” His goal for next year will be Â“to reach out to non-craft beer drinkers, people who have not really experienced craft beer. That will be where the growth will be in our [Tampa Bay] area.Â” He plans to do more marketing on social media as well as promotions at the tasting room. He also hopes word-of-mouth will continue to spread. Â“WeÂ’re trying to grow organically and do more with our local community. WeÂ’re small, but weÂ’re trying to stay small. WeÂ’re focused on our local community,Â” Rapp said. Â“We have a lot of experience and are wellknown in the market regionally and nationally,Â” he said. He talked a bit about Tampa Bay being a craft beer vacation destination. Â“When people plan their vacations, weÂ’re usually on a short list of places to visit,Â” Rapp said.A sense of identityIn Largo, Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon said breweries are valuable because they help build a sense of identity in a community. Â“I would call them placemakers. They are destination locations,Â” she said. Therefore, Brydon said the city has taken measures to keep them happy and attract more. One such place is Barley Mow Brewing Co. in downtown Largo. The owner of the tavern, Jay Dingman, asked several months ago about adding a tasting room at his companyÂ’s production facility off Commerce Drive. After reviewing the cityÂ’s ordinances, Largo decided in November to make a change, including allowing the sale and consumption of alcohol at microbreweries, microdistilleries and regional breweries in industrial properties. Â“We changed regulations for our alcohol as well as our comprehensive development code to make it easier for the brewpubs, microbreweries as well as the regional breweries to do business in our city,Â” Brydon said. Â“We did a lot of changes in regards to that to kind of get caught up with some of the other communities.Â” The ordinance was also amended to allow breweries to request a reduction of the distance separation requirement of 300 feet from a church, child care facility or public school property. While the city doesnÂ’t offer economic incentives, Brydon said one incentive Largo does offer breweries and other small businesses is cooperation, including helping them nd a site or helping them get through the city process in a timely manner.Downtown revitalizationIn Clearwater, leaders are working to attract more restaurants and breweries to downtown Clearwater. The Community Redevelopment Agency now offers 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. 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 ClearwaterÂ’s downtown revitalization as a waterfront dining and entertainment destination. According to the program guidelines, the term of the loan will be ve years and for each year the business is in operation, 20 percent of the loan will be forgiven. At the end of ve years, should the business remain open, the loan will be forgiven in its entirety and will be converted into a grant. Applications for the program will be reviewed by city staff and upon recommendation, approved by city council members.Â– By Suzette Porter, TIffany Razzano, Chris George, Logan MosbyCharlie Breakiron, the general manager, says the owners of the company see the beach as a unique place to do business. Â“One of our owners, Fred Forsley, saw the property here in Treasure Island and he fell in love with the location; it has lots of water views,Â” he said. Â“He also envisioned having boat docks and having people pull up by boat. There are few restaurants that do that and ours should be ready by the spring, by the end of March or April.Â” Breakiron said his company caters to the beach-going customer Â– another reason why opening the business in a beach community is a plus. Â“The vacationers are what drive the business,Â” he said. Â“Those water views are de nitely a plus for the vacationers. They donÂ’t get to see it every day like we do.Â” The Sea Dog Brew Pub has its roots in Maine. Its parent, the Shipyard Brewing Company, has been in business for 25 years and operates in Maine and New Hampshire. Breakiron said much of the food served in the restaurant comes from Maine-inspired recipes. Â“We have lots of lobster dishes and we use as much local food as possible, Gulf oysters,cod and grouper and the sauces of course.Â” Farther north on Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach, the City Commission recently passed an ordinance allowing microbreweries to do business in the city. Without referring speci cally to microbreweries in the town ordinance, such a business could not operate. That has now changed, and microbreweries are welcome in IRB. City Manager Gregg Mims said microbreweries are a thing of the future. Â“We all travel and go places and nd microbreweries wherever we go,Â” he said. Â“It is something that is coming on particularly in Florida the last few years. Our business district would be an ideal location for a microbrewery.Â” But rst Mims realized that some housekeeping had to be taken care of. Â“We had contact about a year ago from a gentleman to open a small microbrewery in Indian Rocks Beach,Â” he said. Â“In reviewing it with him we realized we didnÂ’t have provision to allow that.Â” With that situation now recti ed, Mims said the city will be active in recruiting a brewery, particularly that man who approached them a year ago. Â“They have been waiting for us to pass the ordinance,Â” he said. Â“At some point after the rst of the year weÂ’ll reach out and make him aware it is legal. Also, weÂ’ll be touching base with other operators in the area that the city does allow it; weÂ’ll let them know it is legal.Â” Given what is happening in the industry on the beach communities to the south, Mims couldnÂ’t be more on target. The ChamberÂ’s Sollie said the industry is going in the right direction. Â“From what I know they are successful and they are maturing,Â” she said. Â“It is nice to see they are all working together; there is a nice dynamic about that industry. Some of them serve each otherÂ’s beer.Â” Sollie said there is talk that another microbrewery wants to open on the beaches, another indication of a growing industry. Â“Although they are not a brewery, Tapz on Corey Avenue serves local craft beers,Â” she said. Â“It gives another great aspect of an experience that people can have. People who travel these days are looking for that special local experience.Â” Sea DogÂ’s Breakiron said the hopes of his company echos that of the other players in the industry on the beaches, that of growth and of a future. Â“Business has been doing very well,Â” he said. Â“WeÂ’re going to be around for a while, we plan on it; we havenÂ’t stopped building yet.Â” PINELLAS, from page 1A DUNEDIN, from page 1A Photo by JEFF ROSENFIELDThe Dunedin Woodwright Brewing Company at 985 Douglas Ave. was packed with revelers this holiday season.

Community 5A TBN, January 4, 2018enforcement of free parking with time limits on Main Street.Â” Commissioner Heather Gracy, who cast the dissenting vote, said she can only support a plan that would not be on the backs of taxpayers. Â“I canÂ’t let this hit the general fund,Â” she said, questioning if the plan provides for the potential of future revenue stream losses and impacts. She added the plan also does not provide a free pass for residents who park at the city-owned parking lot or garage. Commissioner Deborah Kynes said she is Â“very supportiveÂ” of this plan. Â“ItÂ’s extremely much more simple. The other plan was too complicated,Â” she said. A vocal opponent of paid parking along Main Street, who noted it kept both residents and visitors away from downtown, Mayor Bujalski voiced favor with the proposed plan. She said Â“one of the things I heard from the community is they want simplicity. They donÂ’t want to have to think about two different rules, on two different days, in the same lot.Â” Â“Three-hour free enforced parking on Main Street is great because itÂ’s consistent,Â” she added. Bujalski suggested she rather have enforcement of time limits along Main Street be handled by staff, who would handle infractions with a friendlier approach than an outside vendor. She foresees on rst infraction violators be issued a warning and brochure explaining the parking plan, rather than a summons. The mayor suggested staff to look at providing the same simplicity and consistency at the marina where three or four different parking regulations will be in effect. Â“There are so many different users in the marina. We need something more simplistic. It would be nice if we could have one rule for the entire thing,Â” she added. The mayor also suggested that paid lots should always charge the same fee both day and night. Commissioner John Tornga added the city will eventually have to add a parking garage to meet demand, especially if private lots are lost to development. Â“In the end thatÂ’s where we want people to go anyway; parking has to be vertical when increased.Â” The mayor added a plan by Housing and Economic Development Director Bob Ironsmith to install a waynding sign system downtown, which was scuttled, should be revisited. Lari Gerson, a Dunedin resident, called the parking plan an innovative compromise that Â“still ignores wishes of residents. We are against parking that includes paid parking in lots. We donÂ’t need paid parking or another parking garage.Â” She said according to consultant reports, itÂ’s not necessary to have a parking garage. ItÂ’s too costly and an unnecessary burden to residents, she added. City Commission approval of this revised parking plan will now result in a resolution being prepared and a transition plan developed, which would be presented to the commission next month. Given that the revised plan has an enforcement component, parking management will be necessary. This can be accomplished by the current method of hiring a company or by adding staff to accomplish the task, Bramley advised. City commissioners asked that downtown paid parking signs and kiosks be covered up immediately and removed as soon as possible. One resident suggested that concrete bases to which pay stations and signs are mounted should be used for art in public places. PARKING, from page 3A Photo by TOM GERMONDUnder a revised plan, parking will be free along Main Street in downtown Dunedin from Bass Boulevard to the Dunedin Marina. Bluffs commissioners re-electedBELLEAIR BLUFFS Â– Since only the two incumbents are running for Belleair Bluffs commission seats, the city will not have an election March 13. Commissioners Joe Barkley and Taylour Shimkus will retain their seats. The qualifying period for the two seats ended Dec. 19. City commissioners serve two-year terms.New book delves into the development of the barrier islandsÂ“Pioneer Days on Tampa BayÂ’s Gulf Beaches,Â” an eyewitness account of the settlement and development of the barrier islands and Pass-a-Grille 1898-1940, is available at several locations in Pinellas County. The new book is written by George Lizotte, Â“a Frenchman who gave up his life as a globe-trotting tour guide to settle in the unspoiled paradise of Pass-aGrille, Florida, in 1900,Â” a press release said. The book is edited by Wayne Ayers, a local historian and longtime correspondent for Tampa Bay Newspapers. Lizotte, who lived from 1861-1960, bridged the pioneer and modern eras and had an active role in transforming Pass-a-Grille into a major resort and later witnessing its transition to a thriving residential community. Â“His experiences and first-hand knowledge made him a perfect candidate to write the early history of the Pinellas beaches, which he did in 1941. This narrative, rst published serially that year in the Gulf Beach News, is the only extant eyewitness account of the early beach development,Â” the release said. Lizotte shares memories of abundant shore dinners, sport fishing famous visitors to his hotels, colorful locals, the building of the Don CeSar and an adventure during the Tampa Bay hurricane of 1921. The book also delves into the early years of St. Petersburg, Treasure Island, Indian Rocks Beach and other beach communities. Â“Ever since Wayne Ayers and his wife Nancy learned about the narrative, they dreamed of seeing it in print as a book so readers could enjoy it,Â” the press release said. Â“After they transcribed the original text, Wayne researched and wrote dozens of notes and an introduction to illuminate the narrative.Â” The Ayers worked with the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, where the book is available, and other institutions to nd photographs and illustrations to complement the text. Available in hardback and paperback, the book also can be bought at Crabby BillÂ’s, Heritage Village, Indian Rocks Historical Museum, Florida Botanical Gardens gift shops, HaslamÂ’s Book Store and Barnes & Noble Tyrone. It is also online at Amazon.com an dUTpress.

Health 7A TBN, January 4, 2018DOH-Pinellas adopts online system to better serve mothers, childrenST. PETERSBURG Â– Since its beginning in 1974, the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children has earned the reputation of being one of the most successful federally-funded supplemental nutrition programs in the country. The program has shown to be a cost-effective and bene cial approach to protecting and improving the health of low to moderate income women, infants and children. Unfortunately, when it comes to replenishing a clientÂ’s bene ts, clients arenÂ’t as satis ed. That is changing thanks to a more user-friendly online system, wichealth.org. Clients can now complete their required nutrition education courses online and their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards will be replenished automatically. The WIC program provides no-cost nutrition counseling, education, and healthy supplemental foods for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants, and children younger than 5 years of age who are at nutrition risk. Breastfeeding promotion and support, referrals for health care, immunizations and community services are also integral parts of the program. Most clients are determined to be low risk, which could mean they are underweight/overweight, their baby was born at a low birth weight or they have another nutrition-related need. Low risk clients are required to come in to one of ve Florida Department of Health in Pinellas (DOH-Pinellas) centers four times a year. This may not seem like a lot for someone who has access to reliable transportation but Danielle Watkins, public health nutritionist supervisor for DOH-Pinellas in Pinellas Park, thinks otherwise. Â“It keeps clients from returning,Â” Watkins said in a press release. Â“They sometimes have to rely on relatives to get to their appointments and thatÂ’s not reliable either.Â” Once a client goes through the initial certi cation process to determine their income eligibility and nutrition risk, they automatically receive their EBT card and can use it immediately. Three months later, they are required to complete interactive nutrition Â“contactsÂ” or lessons with a WIC staff member to reload their cards. During these encounters, clients learn about different nutrition topics such as physical activity, how to save money at the store, food safety, etc., all while WIC personnel replenish their EBT card. Each client must complete a certain amount of Â“contactsÂ” a year depending on their nutrition risk. Somewhere along the way between the certi cation, recerti cation and the contact appointments, clients drop the program and discontinue their benefits because they are unable to make it back in to the of ce. Even with innovations such as the DOH-PinellasÂ’ WIC drive-thru in mid-county, the rst and only one in the country, clients still have trouble getting to the centers for their follow-up appointments. To combat the low return rate, more than 20 states currently use a federally-approved program, wichealth. org. DOH-PinellasÂ’ WIC program was selected to be one of three counties to serve as the pilot programs for the Florida Department of Health to use the online system. Instead of coming into the center for their threemonth appointment, low risk clients with children 1-5 years of age now have the opportunity to take the lessons online and a WIC staff member will reload their EBT cards automatically. The best part: clients can complete the courses at their convenience using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Low risk clients with children 1-5 years of age are the only clients allowed to reload their bene ts using the online system. Clients with infants and clients who are high risk still need to come in to the of ce because their cases may require more attention than a low risk client. Barbara Sarver, WIC and nutrition services manager at the St. Petersburg center, says even though low risk clients with children 1-5 years of age are eligible to reload their benefits using the online system, staff encourage all clients to sign up because of the resources available. Â“There are many topics to pick from and the system provides recipes and resources that all our clients could bene t from,Â” she said. As of October 2017, DOH-Pinellas has 35 clients who are using the system. Within the next year, the online system will be available to all Florida Department of Health WIC programs and their clients. As soon as a woman thinks she may be pregnant or know she is pregnant, she can start the process by referring to the WIC income guidelines and setting up a WIC certi cation appointment by calling 727-8246900.

Organization presents scholarship checksThirty-two college students from Pinellas County were presented $500 checks at the annual holiday luncheon of the College Fund of Pinellas County Inc. The luncheon, held in a hall provided by Anona United Methodist Church, is an annual event that continues the semester-bysemester scholarship support provided by the College Fund charity to students selected by the organization based on scholastic achievement, nancial need and a personal interview. Each studentÂ’s grades were reviewed by College Fund directors Sheila Keller, Shirley Lorenzo and Regan Musgrove before treasurer Sherry Rankine wrote the check. In addition to the students and the College Fund board of directors, the luncheon was attended by family members of the students and several of the organizationÂ’s donors. The program, which included the introduction of each student, gave donors the opportunity to meet the students they were supporting. Several students were asked to take a microphone and offer advice to their fellow students from the lessons they had learned. The program also included a beautiful rendition of holiday season music sung by grant recipient Jermaine Robinson of Seminole, who is majoring in musical theater at Rider University in New Jersey. Students who were unable to attend the holiday party will be sent their check by mail. All totaled, the College Fund expects to pay out more than $56,000 in student grants for the fall 2017 and spring 2018 school year. Since its founding in 1965, the College Fund has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to more than 780 Pinellas County residents, enabling them to achieve their goal of a college education and thereby improve themselves, their familyÂ’s living standard, and their role in the community. The College Fund has no paid employees. The financial contributions from its directors and advisors exceed its administrative costs. Therefore, 100 percent of the donations from the public are used to support students.

10A Viewpoints TBN, January 4, 2018During the upcoming 2018 Florida Legislative Session, Right on Crime will serve as a resource to lawmakers on the importance of criminal justice reform, breaking down long-held, but unsupported, policy prescriptions. For example, the assumption that to decrease crime, all drug offenders should be subjected to the same mandatory minimum sentences has led to burdensome prison costs with little return for public safety. As an alternative, Right on Crime will introduce and promote public safety reform measures that have seen results in other states that most Floridians want to see enacted. Housing 102,000 inmates in 63 prisons across Florida costs taxpayers nearly $2.4 billion and the recidivism rate is a dismal 33 percent Â– meaning one out of every three inmates released from a Florida prison will return to a Florida prison within three years. Just as conservatives hold other government functions accountable for spending, the same costeffectiveness requirement should apply to our criminal justice system. There are steps Florida can take to cut crime and spending within the criminal justice landscape that have proven to save taxpayer dollars, reduce recidivism and protect public safety. For instance, reforming mandatory minimum sentencing by instituting a judicial safety valve. Under current Florida law, judges are required to sentence all individuals convicted of certain drug crimes to the same mandatory prison term Â– without taking any mitigating factors into account. Meaning a rst-time, low-level drug offender is subject to the same minimum prison term as a drug kingpin. If a judicial safety valve were instituted, the court system would be given the exibility needed to divert low-level drug offenders with substance abuse issues into drug treatment. While some argue this puts dealers back on the streets and endangers the public, there is simply no evidence to suggest mandatory minimums have any effect on public safety. Texas, for example, has virtually no mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines in place and has a nearly identical crime rate to that of Florida. The bottom line is a judicial safety valve is more effective and less expensive than mandatory minimum sentencing, and does not put public safety at risk. In addition to a judicial safety valve, Florida is well behind other states in reforming its laws governing the property theft threshold, which has not been changed since 1986. The state is once again using an outdated, onesizets-all model to criminal justice. In this instance, someone who steals a $300 Xbox is punished in the same manner as someone who steals a $20,000 car. Moreover, raising the property theft threshold, which 37 other states have already done, including neighboring states that have felony theft thresholds more than three times higher than FloridaÂ’s, does not result in an increase in felony theft. Simply put, there are more effective, less expensive ways to deal with petty theft than habitual incarceration which costs taxpayers and has not proven to promote public safety. Finally, in Florida, there is strong Republican and Democratic support for common sense criminal justice reform and a recently released poll, funded by Right on Crime, demonstrably indicates registered voters overwhelmingly believe the primary purpose of the criminal justice system is to rehabilitate and not punish criminals. The poll found that, despite the range of opinions voters have on the criminal justice system, both voter groups readily embrace the four proposed reforms tested: Â Roughly 3 in 4 registered voters and GOP voters support ending the practice of suspending driversÂ’ licenses for failure to pay court fees or nes when the person can prove an inability to pay and agrees to do community service. Â Nearly three-quarters or more of Republican and Democratic voters support encouraging counties to create civil citation programs that would allow police of cers to give citations that include nes and/or community service instead of making arrests for various misdemeanors. Â Two-thirds or more of both voter groups support allowing Florida judges to cut threeand ve-year mandatory minimum sentences by up to two-thirds for rst-time drug offenders when they believe the mandatory sentence is inappropriate based on the crime committed. Â A solid majority of voters from both parties support raising the minimum monetary threshold that quali es as a felony from $300 to $1,500. The case for smart criminal justice reform is clearer today than at any time in our past, and with smart solutions already being widely discussed by Florida lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, Right on Crime is hopeful that the 2018 session will usher in laws that truly work to reduce crime, deliver justice to victims and safeguard taxpayers money. Chelsea Murphy serves as Florida state director for Right on Crime LETTERS Parking plan should help unite a divided communityEditor: The downtown paid parking program has been one of the most divisive issues the Dunedin community has experienced in decades with strong opinions, expressed often, by those on both sides at commission meetings, workshops, informational meetings, and listening sessions. Any middle ground seemed illusive. Yet, even those who had been most adamantly opposed to any consideration of a paid parking component, including Mayor Bujalski, found common ground, in a plan of compromise forged by Commissioner Freaney. It is a plan that has promise to bring unity back to what had become a divided community. The Dunedin City Commission had shown true, community-based leadership. The citizens of Dunedin should be pleased and proud that we have a city commission that had the capacity to recognize the concerns of its citizens and approach the problem in a responsible and sensible way. It is a lesson to be learned in the value of conversation, listening, and understanding. It is a part of what makes Dunedin a very special, and delight, community. David Loeffert Dunedin IÂ’m reading a worthwhile book called Â“Hillbilly Elegy.Â” Its subtitle is Â“A memoir of a family and culture in crisis.Â” The author, J.D. Vance, is a lawyer and a Yale graduate who by now has a couple of dollars to rub together. It wasnÂ’t always that way. Vance grew up as a poor white boy in Ohio and Kentucky. His father was a drunk who abandoned his family. His mother was addicted to heroin and opioid medications. Vance was saved from a bleak future by his grandparents, who raised him, and by four years in the Marine Corps. He later worked his way through Ohio State University before entering Yale. His book is not an up-from-the-ashes account of victory over heavy odds, although it could be described that way. Probably the most enduring sections of VanceÂ’s story are his thoughts on how millions of working class inhabitants of Appalachia have descended into poverty and apparent hopelessness. And why so many of them seem doomed to remain there. Hard-to-control economic forces play a part in the destinies of most Americans. No one can or should blame hillbillies for their despair when long-relied-upon factories and industries are suddenly moved to China or Singapore. But Vance points out that some long-held attitudes and practices of many hillbillies are equally to blame for their continuing destitution. Among these are such things as distrust of outsiders; idleness and unwillingness to work or to search for jobs even when they are available; reliance on and abuse of welfare programs; failure to require school children to study and learn; submitting to Â“learned helplessness,Â” the idea that the cards are stacked against them even before they start; and chaotic family life, often worsened by alcohol and other drugs. In the face of these things, Vance stlll nds reasons for optimism. To do this, he calls on his memories of his grandparents and other oldsters who, despite hard times, managed to maintain peaceful and productive homes. Thousands of such working-class people exist today even in the midst of the destitution that surrounds them. Vance offers no magical uplift solution to the problems of working-class inhabitants of Appalachia, that vast, mostly mountainous region that sprawls from the lower tier of New York state to northern Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. But he feels changes can be made, whether by government or by our increased understanding of what has happened to the American way of life. I would bet that coming years will see J.D. Vance playing a signi cant role in the lives of his fellow hillbillies. VanceÂ’s memories of his childhood stirred up a few dozen of my own. My father was a heavyequipment operator for a road construction company based in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. The contracts the company landed took an average of one year to complete. This meant that each year my parents, their two sons and a daughter would pack up and move to another Godforsaken Appalachian hamlet. ThatÂ’s unfair. IÂ’m sure God was present in each of those towns, but often they lacked much else to commend them. With luck my parents usually found a rented house with running water and electricity. The typical town might have a general store, a gas station and one unnecessary traf c light. In our fourth and sixth grades, my brother Dave and I attended oneroom schools, each taught by one teacher. It was a sometimes-ragged existence, but it had one major advantage for Dave and me: no matter how drab the town or unwelcoming the inhabitants, we knew that within a year or so we would move on. Our nal liberation occurred shortly after high school. The FBI hired us as fingerprint clerks, to help identify Commies lurking in government circles. Small towns Â– in Appalachia or elsewhere Â– cannot be labeled good or bad. They are a mix, like the people I knew who lived there. I never considered them to be hillbillies, rednecks or any other classi cation. Then, as now, they had two important decisions to make: (1) Do I stay here forever, or do I get out, and (2) if I choose to escape, how do I do it? Where do I go? Where is a decent job waiting for me? Today, in tiny towns throughout America, those answers are hard to come by. Bob DriverÂ’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.No wonder the right distrusts the FedsWASHINGTON Â– As Washington conservatives question whether partisan FBI of cials working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller have stacked the deck against President Donald Trump, a criminal case in Las Vegas points to the sort of federal prosecutorial abuses that give the right cause for paranoia. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial in the infamous 2014 Bunkerville standoff case against rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan, and co-defendant Ryan Payne, on the grounds that federal prosecutors improperly withheld evidence. The standoff, in which both sides were armed, was a national news story that pitted a western rancher against federal of cialdom. Bureau of Land Management officials had tried to seize BundyÂ’s cattle following a decades-long dispute over grazing fees. The rancher had stopped paying federal grazing fees in 1993 to protest a BLM directive that he cut back on cattle grazing in order to accommodate the threatened desert tortoise. In the course of the trial, Navarro found that prosecutors failed to share video surveillance, maps and FBI interview reports with defense attorneys. A mistrial in this case is the most suitable and only remedy available, Navarro explained. As the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported, the judge stressed that she did not want her decision to be seen as a signal that the defendants are not guilty. NavarroÂ’s decision apparently was a re ection on federal of cials. It follows release of a memo by BLM investigator Larry Wooten that described a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct, as well as likely policy, ethical and legal violations among senior and supervisory staff in the BLMÂ’s Office of Law Enforcement and Security. Wooten wrote that he had seen excessive force, described of cers grinding BundyÂ’s son DaveÂ’s face in gravel and opined that federal of cials were intent on commanding the most intrusive, oppressive, large scale and militaristic cattle impound possible. In an apparently partisan reference that used a term Hillary Clinton designated for some of TrumpÂ’s supporters, Wooten wrote that a federal prosecutor said, letÂ’s get these shall we say Deplorables. (Likewise FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked on MuellerÂ’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, shared texts in which they called Trump a loathsome human. Mueller removed Strzok after he learned of the texts.) Wooten also wrote that the Bundy case closely mirrors the circumstances behind the trial of former Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska. In 2008, federal prosecutors indicted Stevens, a Republican senator, for failing to report that an oil contractor had paid for renovations on his Alaska cabin. A jury convicted Stevens, who lost the re-election. Only later did the case fall apart after a Department of Justice probe found prosecutors had withheld exculpatory evidence. Attorney General Eric Holder, who inherited the case after President Barack Obama won the White House, asked the courts to throw out the conviction. Wooten is no fan of Cliven Bundy who, he wrote, instead of properly using the court system or other avenues to properly address his grievances, he chose an illegal, uncivilized and dangerous strategy in which a tragedy was narrowly and thankfully avoided. Tragedy was not averted in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon last year when law enforcement shot and killed Robert LaVoy Finicum during a Bundy-inspired showdown. Clearly Bundy should not be made out to be some kind of hero, observed Jim Burling, vice president of the property-rights oriented Paci c Legal Foundation. But BLM and DOJ are doing everything they can to turn Bundy into some kind of martyr and theyÂ’re giving him far more credibility than he should be given. Attorney General Jeff Sessions takes the matter seriously. According to spokesman Ian Prior, Sessions personally directed that an expert in the DepartmentÂ’s discovery obligations be deployed to examine the case and advise as to next steps. As for the Justice Department, said Burling, If they want to enforce the law, they should look at the mirror rst. Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ reviewjournal.com or 202-662-7391.

Outdoors 11A TBN, January 4, 2018Sparkling in anticipation, a fairhaired lady ew here all the way from England for a blessed winter break. Once here, she effortlessly shook off the damp chill of her island home in our sunny winter days. Rather than sugar plums, her head danced with visions of marine magnificence: elegant shore birds, gulls in garbs of grays and white, pelicans soaring in splendid breeding colors, grizzled half-ton manatees, and daintier quarter-ton dolphins Â– maybe even a few baby dolphins for garnish the way ribbon adds sparkle to Christmas wrappings. Perhaps it was Father Christmas who transformed a MacyÂ’s Christmas Parade into a magnificent dolphin parade just for her. Maybe it was dolphin Â“old home weekÂ” at sea. Either way, the fair-haired ladyÂ’s wish to see Florida dolphins came true with Christmas bounty: A single boat ride along our local waterways with her new husband became a dizzying day of 21 different groups of dolphins, one right after another like oats in a parade! Get out on the water on any day, and you are likely to see a dozen dolphins on average. That number varies across the year, however, and in winter months you are likely to see half that number. But on this dolphin Â“old home week,Â” there were four to ve times more dolphins than expected! Getting twice as much as you hoped for is wonderful, but getting five times as much is wonderful, rare, and memorable, even at Christmas time! What a gift! Local waters are cool in December, and local dolphins become very active the way a dog prances on autumn walks. But the dolphin Â“old home weekÂ” took their characteristic actions even further. Small groups of dolphins formed and faded continuously, the way people mingle at Christmas parties. Around the islands inside of JohnÂ’s Pass, Stick and her little calf Stem mingled with two teens, two junior bulls, and local lady Babyface. Dolphin Watch reported Stem as the little guy that was plagued with strange spasms as a very young dolphin; happily, he has behaved normally for months and we hope he has outgrown his issue. Babyface is the dolphin that was brutally wounded when she was run over by a boat two years ago; happily, she too has managed well despite her disability. We think this is partly because she has many different ways to nd her food. Action was everywhere. The teens jousted with the calf. The junior bulls swung over to the mother dolphin in greeting and kept going. Babyface ambled around without joining anyone, but then she secretly trailed the junior bulls for a couple of miles after they headed out. A mile later the junior bulls greeted three more mothers and their calves, which pitched the baby dolphins into a frenzy of racing, but swung well away to avoid two senior bulls as they headed to the Narrows. The two senior bulls invited a young calf to play but the mother dolphin only let one of bulls play with her baby, not the other one! There was general snacking, sh tossing and lunging but mostly mingling, all part of the lightness of dolphin behavior in cool waters. Entranced by each group of dolphins she saw, the fairhaired lady from England kept thinking that each would be the last of the boat trip. Yet it went and on, until even the lovely lady and her new husband were heady with 21 different groups of dolphins, like showing a child 21 different oats in a parade. They had also been introduced to each dolphin personally but, like most Christmas parties, probably wonÂ’t remember everybodyÂ’s name. Why were so many dolphins here that memorable day? Dolphins gather spontaneously when drawn to something attractive. The attraction is often food. But it is often also each other or what the other dolphins are doing. This memorable gathering was probably a little of both. But it sounds like people at a Christmas party, doesnÂ’t it? Extreme full moon tides later this week will all but empty the Intracoastal Waterway. Grass flats that are rarely exposed will be dry for much of the morning. This situation can provide some spectacular inshore shing. Focus your efforts on small cuts on the very outer edges of the secondary grass ats. Much like points and coves along a mangrove shoreline, these cuts provide some structure that will attract bait as well as the mullet schools that the red sh and gator trout shadow. Redfish can often be spotted tailing in these low tide conditions. Hopping out of the boat and quietly stalking them as they make their way onto the at with the incoming tide is perhaps one of the most exciting and humbling ways to catch fish in our region. These often-spooky red sh can be caught on a variety of soft-plastic lures, especially the scented ones, and will even strike a top-water plug at times. However, your best bet for hooking up would have to be a live select shrimp. Use the smallest peg style float you can find as a strike indicator pegged a foot or so above your shrimp, this will allow you to track your shrimp so you can cast it well beyond the sh and draw it back to them. Top-water plugs have been extremely effective lately in the early morning hours. ThereÂ’s plenty of big trout roaming the Intracoastal right now, and a noisy top-water plug that can be casted well away from the boat is probably the best way to target them. Also, spoil islands in the northern part of the county are still holding good concentrations of trout. Target peak tidal movement for best action. Soft-plastic jigs in natural shrimp colors work well as does a free-lined select shrimp. If youÂ’re looking for a good shrimp alternative, try setting out a pin sh trap over shell bottom. Baited with frozen sardines on a full tide either incoming or outgoing, your trap should load up with small pin sh and grunts, both of which will work great for trout. Silver trout are schooled up along area beaches from JohnÂ’s Pass north to Indian Shores have been holding plenty of silver trout. Drifting with the wind and tide while bouncing brightly colored soft-plastic jigs off the bottom is a great way to locate them. When itÂ’s too rough to drift sh, use your bottom machine to help locate the trout, typically the schools will be holding near the bottom in 8 to 15 feet of water.

Opening this weekend Â‘Insidious: The Last KeyÂ’ continues horror saga; Chastain, Elba star in Â‘MollyÂ’s GameÂ’ Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following lms opening in wide release:Â‘MollyÂ’s GameÂ’Genre: Drama and biography Cast: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris OÂ’Dowd and Bill Camp Director: Aaron Sorkin Rated: R MollyÂ’s Game is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), a young, charismatic Olympic-hopeful skier who was forced to abandon athletics after a devastating injury. With law school on hold, Molly takes a summer job that introduces her to a new endeavor requiring similar discipline and drive: running the worldÂ’s most exclusive highstakes underground poker game. The deep pockets of Hollywood royalty, sports stars and business titans give her a decade of glitzy, glamourous success, but Molly attracts the wrong kind of attention when she inadvertently engages members of the Russian mob at her table. Her streak comes to a grinding halt when sheÂ’s arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Facing criminal charges, her only ally is her reluctant defense lawyer (Idris Elba), who discovers that thereÂ’s much more to Molly Bloom than the salacious tabloid stories reveal. MollyÂ’s Game marks the directorial debut of renowned playwright and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, multiple Academy Award nominee, recipient of the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Social Network, and ve-time Emmy winner for TV series The West Wing. Among SorkinÂ’s most celebrated works are also Academy Award-nominated military courtroom drama A Few Good Men, which stars Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise; and Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt.Â‘Insidious: The Last KeyÂ’Genre: Thriller and horror Cast: Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker and Marcus Henderson Director: Adam Robitel Rated: PG-13 Photo by JUSTIN LUBIN/UNIVERSAL PICTURESLin Shaye stars as Dr. Elise Rainier, a brilliant parapsychologist, in "Insidious: The Last Key."Photo courtesy of FELD ENTERTAINMENTAmalie Arena presents "Marvel Universe Live!"

Entertainment 3B TBN, January 4, 2018Â‘Odessey and OracleÂ’The Zombies, celebrating 50th anniversary of landmark album, to perform at Capitol Theatre Jan. 11CLEARWATER Â– The Zombies, currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of Â“Odessey and Oracle,Â” will perform Thursday, Jan. 11, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49.50. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. The Zombies are continuing their remarkable 21st-century resurgence with a 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination and a 23-date North American tour, starting on Jan. 8, in Key West. The Florida leg of the tour includes four exclusive performances of their iconic album Â“Odessey and Oracle,Â” performed in its entirety by the original members of the band, including Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Chris White and Hugh Grundy. The remainder of the tour will feature the acclaimed current line-up, which includes Argent and Blunstone as well as Jim Rodford, Tom Toomey and Steve Rodford. Â“Odessey and Oracle,Â” The ZombiesÂ’ second album, was released in April 1968. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Â“Odessey and Oracle.Â” Nine of the 12 songs featured on the album were recorded at EMIÂ’s Abbey Road Studios. According to the bandÂ’s of cial website, when The Zombies earn praise by popÂ’s hip aristocracy, it has been largely for their swansong, Â“Odessey & OracleÂ” Â– the title of which was famously misspelled by the cover artist. The album included the bandÂ’s most celebrated song, Â“Time Of The Season.Â” Â“Odessey and OracleÂ” turned out to be the bandÂ’s second and nal album. Recorded in 1967 before they went their separate ways, it remains perhaps their greatest artistic statement, presenting an evocation of memory that maybe has yet to be surpassed in pop music, with a peculiarly English yet universal slant on dreams, childhood and the attendant loss of innocence that derives from the passing of both. The ZombiesÂ’ 2018 tour follows an extremely active and exciting 2017, culminating with the bandÂ’s nomination to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, their third since 2014. Other 2017 highlights included a major anniversary tour celebrating Â“Odessey and OracleÂ” with stops at New York CityÂ’s Town Hall, Los AngelesÂ’ Ace Hotel Theatre, LondonÂ’s famed Palladium, and BarcelonaÂ’s Primavera Sound Festival; the release of the coffee-table book Â“The Odessey: The Zombies in Words and ImagesÂ”: and releases on CD and vinyl, including the reissue of Â“Odessey and OracleÂ” for the rst time on CD in digipak with bonus tracks. Other 2017 releases included a greatest hits LP, a reissue of Â“Still Got That HungerÂ” on baby blue vinyl and two exclusive Record Store Day releases. In addition, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland featured The Zombies in a new exhibit, which spotlights the in uential career and music of the iconic British Invasion group. The exhibit opened on July 12 and all four original members attended the special ceremony. The Zombies were one of the few English bands of the 1960s that enjoyed true global popularity. The group scored two American No. 1 hits along with chart records throughout the rest of the world. Moreover, their international fans developed a deep and lasting affection for their music. In early 1967, at a time when their career had almost ground to a halt in the UK, the band played to crowds of over 30,000 in the Philippines. And ironically, right after the band split, their nal single Â“Time Of The SeasonÂ” quickly became their biggest record.

This yearÂ’s annual exhibition will open Sunday, Jan. 14, and will continue through Sunday, Feb. 4, at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin. Â“Though the works are tiny, the crowds are huge,Â” said George Ann Bissett, president of DFAC. Â“ThereÂ’s obviously something magical about these small works.Â” Approximately 700 works of art will be shown, including the societyÂ’s permanent collection of more than 100 miniatures. Entries from around the world and across the country provide a wonderful diversity of subject matter and framing techniques. In addition to the works on display, starting Monday January 15 through the end of the show, artists from England, Canada and many U.S. states including Florida will be on hand to demonstrate and discuss their techniques. The Miniature Art Society of Florida was founded in 1974 in Clearwater. The organization encourages artists to become involved in the exciting world of miniaturism. It seeks to broaden the awareness of the public and collectors to the delicate beauty and re nement of this venerable art form. MASF scholarship efforts assist talented young artists of the future. MASF is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations made to the society are tax deductible. For information about MASF, visit www.miniature-art.com. DFAC hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 65 and older and veterans, and $5 for students with valid identification. DFAC and MASF members along with students 12 and younger will be admitted for free. While much of the gallery will be focused on small works, with the recent expansion and the addition of two additional gallery spaces DFAC is able to Â“go bigÂ” at the same time. Catherine Bergmann, DFACÂ’s curatorial director, likes to pair visiting exhibits with local offering in the same theme. This is often a delightful coupling and this yearÂ’s Â“Big EyesÂ” is no exception. In this all-media juried exhibit, artists use Margaret KeaneÂ’s bigeyed waif paintings of children and animals from the 1960s as a point of departure for their own present-day variation on the theme. The exhibit also opens Jan. 14 and continues through Feb. 18. Admission is free with admission to the 43rd annual International Miniature Art Exhibition opening the same day at DFAC.DFAC to host Coffee & ConversationThe Sterling Society of DFAC will host its next Coffee & Conversation session on Thursday, Jan. 11, noon, at DFAC, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin. Admission is $5. DFAC members are admitted for free. Maureen McDole will be talking about being a poet and the growth of her organization of Keep St. Pete Lit and St. PeteÂ’s art scene. She will read selections of her poems and also have a question and answer session with the audience. McDole was born in St. Petersburg. She is a direct descendant of carnies, carpenters and shermen. This do-it-yourself ethos in her DNA infuses every area of her life. As far back as she can remember she loved to write. Her rst book of poems, Â“Exploring My Options,Â” came out in 2006. In December 2008, McDole graduated from USF-St. Petersburg with a bachelorÂ’s degree in English literature. Her second poetry book, Â“Longing for the Deep End,Â” was released in December 2011. McDole is currently working on her third collection of poems. Her poetry has been set in a variety of different ways including: film, dance, spoken word, art installations, Sprechstimme, and traditional vocal works. McDole is the recipient of St. Petersburg Art AllianceÂ’s 2016 MUSE Award for Literary Arts. She is also the VP of Friends of the Mirror Lake Library. Maureen has been leading workshops and speaking about creativity for over 15 years. She founded Keep St. Pete Lit because she believes wholeheartedly in the power of literature to change the world.

4B Entertainment TBN, January 4, 2018CPPAC to welcome Canadian jazz trumpeter Bria SkonbergLARGO Â– Vocalist, trumpeter and songwriter Bria Skonberg will perform Saturday, Jan. 13, 8 p.m., at Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets start at $24.50. Visit LargoArts.com or call 727-587-6793. Skonberg recently won the 2017 Juno Award Â– the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy Award Â– for Best Vocal Jazz Album for her rst OKeh collection, Â“Bria.Â” Further accolades include Best Vocal and Best Trumpet awards from Hot House Jazz Magazine and Outstanding Jazz Artist at the New York Bistro Awards. She also was a nominee for Jazz journalistsÂ’ Association Up and Coming Artist. Skonberg is a self-described Â“small town girlÂ” from Chilliwack, British Columbia, who hightailed it to Vancouver straight out of high school and earned a degree in Jazz Trumpet Performance. To date, she has performed at some 100 festivals worldwide. She is the co-founder of the New York Hot Jazz Camp and New York Hot Jazz Festival. Â“Fresh,Â” her debut album, was released in 2009. She followed that up with Â“So Is the DayÂ” in 2012 and Â“Into Your OwnÂ” in 2014. In May 2017, Skonberg released Â“With a TwistÂ” (OKeh/Masterworks). Skonberg spins her cool and con dent vocal style Â– and her sleek and timeless jazz chops Â– into a program that playfully nods to tradition while always looking ahead. Â“The inspiration was love and adventure, and the many twists and turns and tunnels you can get into,Â” said Skonberg in a press release. Â“ItÂ’s a little about my time in New York, a little bit of cocktail culture. The musical inspiration was a modern-day Esquivel, Perez Prado, maybe some Spike Jones. ItÂ’s just important to me to put some love and positivity out into the world right now.Â” Â“With a TwistÂ” reunites Skonberg with producer Matt Pierson, whom she credits with helping her realize the albumÂ’s concept. The album features five-time Grammy winner Gil Goldstein. Goldstein arranged six of the tracks and plays keyboards and accordion. Also featured on Â“With a Twist is Sullivan Fortner on piano, Scott Colley on bass and Matt Wilson on drums. On Â“With a Twist,Â” Skonberg deftly pays tribute to some great singers who in uenced her.

The ZombiesÂ’ rst two American singles, Â“SheÂ’s Not ThereÂ” and Â“Tell Her No,Â” also remain two of the most-heavily spun vintage hits on American classic-rock radio. Following the break-up of the original band, Blunstone went on to develop an acclaimed solo career and Argent rocked Â‘70s arenas with his eponymous band Argent. The legend of The Zombies continued to take on a life of its own. By the start of the new millennium, Blunstone and Argent were inspired to resurrect The Zombies. In 2001, Blunstone and Argent released the rst recorded fruits of their collaboration in the album Â“Out Of The Shadows.Â” This was followed up in 2004 with Â“As Far As I Can See Â…Â” The 2004 album was released in the U.S. by Rhino Records and featured 10 new tracks, plus a re-working of BlunstoneÂ’s hit Â“I DonÂ’t Believe In Miracles.Â”, The album is colored by The ZombiesÂ’ trademark minor-key melancholy along with Blunstone and ArgentÂ’s explorations of new musical territory. The second U.K. band following the Beatles to score a No. 1 hit in America, The Zombies in ltrated the airwaves with the sophisticated melodies, breathy vocals, choral back-up harmonies and jazzy keyboard riffs of their 1960s hit singles Â“SheÂ’s Not ThereÂ” and Â“Tell Her No.Â” To this day, generations of new bands have cited The ZombiesÂ’ work as pop touchstones, and the band continues to be embraced by new generations of fans.

Tickets start at $49.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Blessed with what the New York Times described as a Â“beautiful countertenor,Â” singer Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful lm career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being 2007Â’s Â“Some Enchanted Evening.Â” Â“What Is It All But Luminous (Notes From An Underground Man),Â” GarfunkelÂ’s new book, was released Sept. 26 by Alfred A. Knopf. Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow New York City native Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection Â– featuring songs such as Â“Mrs. Robinson,Â” Â“Scarborough Fair,Â” Â“The Sound Of Silence,Â” Â“The BoxerÂ” and Â“Bridge Over Troubled WaterÂ” Â– is one of the biggest selling albums ever. Â“Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,Â” says Garfunkel in a press release. He relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world. Â“IÂ’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job.Â” Â“Some Enchanted Evening, GarfunkelÂ’s 12th solo album, is a musical celebration of material from the 20th centuryÂ’s greatest songwriters, including Rodgers & Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Antonio Carlos Jobim and George Gershwin. Â“IÂ’ve been loving this stuff all my life,Â” Art explains in a biography posted on his of cial website. The album is the organic next chapter in GarfunkelÂ’s life, as he reflects on fatherhood and the chaotic world we live in. Â“In this nervous world, I want to soothe. ItÂ’s a great time for moderation, for thoughtfulness, for dialogue, for the great Exhale, for humor. A great time for a sweet sound, a visceral, charming, prayerful sound.Â” In teaming with Richard Perry, his friend and producer, Garfunkel found a forum for his revered vocal style, recapturing the spirit of their Breakaway sessions, which produced the hit Â“I Only Have Eyes For You.Â” Â“In a sense, Richard and I picked up where we left off,Â” Garfunkel says. Â“This album is RichardÂ’s elegant production, it ts me good, and I am especially proud of it. Some of the songs I brought in like Â‘Some Enchanted EveningÂ’ and Harold ArlenÂ’s Â‘LetÂ’s Fall In Love.Â’ I had my favorites and he had his, like Â‘Life Is But A DreamÂ’ and Â‘Quiet Nights.Â’ We both love Johnny Mathis and Chet Baker.Â” Garfunkel said he feels somewhat different from many people in the extraordinary amount of good fortune that fell into his lap and made up his life. Â“I rehearsed a lot in my teenage years and really sought after what this country holds, good fortune for those who go after it with hard work,Â” he says. Â“But I do feel as I pass through the country, itÂ’s a charmed life. I grew up with a lot of love in my family, so I have the five senses with which to glean the richness of this land as I pass through it.Â” Insurance Premium Increased? Call Us!

Central Park Performing Arts Center to present Â‘Candid CameraÂ’LARGO Â– For eight decades, television viewers have heard a familiar phrase that immediately evokes hilariousness: Â“Smile Â– youÂ’re on Â‘Candid Camera.Â” Reliving the memories of one of televisionÂ’s favorite programs, Â“Candid CameraÂ’s Eight Decades of SmilesÂ” will be presented Sunday, Jan. 7, 2 p.m., at Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets start at $29.50. Call 727587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. Hosted by Peter Funt, this laughlled show features clips, quips and great fun. The show has pleased audiences nationwide. PeterÂ’s hilarious stage comedy is blended with a behindthe-scenes peek at the showÂ’s funniest moments. Created by Allen Funt, PeterÂ’s father, Â“Candid CameraÂ” is the only entertainment program to have produced new episodes in each of the last eight decades Â– from AllenÂ’s start on TV in 1948, through PeterÂ’s acclaimed runs on CBS and on TV Land. The history of Â“Candid CameraÂ” actually goes back to 1947 when Â“The Candid MicrophoneÂ” debuted on radio. Allen next produced a series of theatrical film shorts using the same name. A little more than a year later, AllenÂ’s concept came to television Â– rst on ABC and then on NBC. In 1951, the format shifted to syndication. In 1958, Â“Candid CameraÂ” returned to network television as a segment on Jack PaarÂ’s Â“The Tonight Show.Â” By 1960, Â“Candid CameraÂ” was again a standalone show that continued into the 1970s. During this run, Allen was often joined by a co-host. Among the showÂ’s notable co-hosts are Arthur Godfrey, Durward Kirby, Fannie Flagg and Jo Ann P ug. For his current show, Peter uses the vast Â“Candid CameraÂ” library, showcasing decades of fun and reveals what happened when the cameras werenÂ’t rolling. PeterÂ’s latest show was a Â“top pickÂ” in People Magazine and praised by The New York Times. Â“This is not just a trip down memory lane,Â” said Peter in a press release promoting the show. Â“ItÂ’s a funny, fast-paced commentary on our whacky world as seen through the Â‘Candid Camera.Â’Â” In addition to special surprises, several audience members will get a chance to answer Â“Candid CameraÂ” trivia questions and win prizes. Joining in the live stage presentation will be PeterÂ’s son Danny, and his niece Katie, both of whom appeared in the TV Land version of Â“Candid Camera.Â” Additional information is available at www.candidcamera.com. Peter Funt Photos courtesy of CANDID CAMERA INC."Candid Camera's Eight Decades of Smiles," presented by Peter Funt, features clips, quips and funny moments from "Candid Camera." The show comes to Central Park Performing Arts Center on Jan. 7.Â“ItÂ’s Oh So QuietÂ” is BjrkÂ’s memorable twist of a song Betty Hutton first sang in the early 1950s. Skonberg says she has loved it since hearing the Bjrk recording in her car as a high school student in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Also included is Â“High Hat, Trumpet, and Rhythm,Â” a hot tune by Valaida Snow, the American jazz singer and trumpeter who became a worldwide sensation in the 1920s and 1930s. Fresh takes on Â“Cocktails for TwoÂ” (with a hint of Spike JonesÂ’s antic style); Â“Whatever Lola WantsÂ” from Damn Yankees; and Â“Back in Your Own Back YardÂ” (a 1920s-vintage favorite of singers as diverse as Al Jolson and Billie Holliday) round out the golden-age standards. SkonbergÂ’s originals on Â“With a TwistÂ” represent a little odyssey of songwriting. Â“Same Kind of CrazyÂ” was written in Nashville with Jeff Cohen. Â“How I KnowÂ” was written in Los Angeles with Sam Hollander. Â“Time to Go,Â” another original song, serves as the albumÂ’s closing track. Â“I made that one up, and I wanted it on the album,Â” Skonberg said. Â“The little lick in the intro and outro belong to a song by Dizzy Gillespie called Â‘Dizzy Atmosphere,Â’Â” she explained. Â“The sentiment of that song lines up with the theme of this album Â– and Dizzy wouldÂ’ve been 100 this year.Â” SKONBERG, from page 4B Bria Skonberg performs Jan. 13 at Central Park Performing Arts Center.Photo courtesy of BRIA SKONBERG Ruth Eckerd Hall to present Grammy Hall of Fame inductee Johnny MathisCLEARWATER Â– Grammy Hall of Fame inductee Johnny Mathis will perform Friday, Jan. 12, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Best-known for his supremely popular hits like Â“Chances Are,Â” Â“ItÂ’s Not for Me to SayÂ” and Â“Misty,Â” Mathis has recorded close to 80 albums, six Christmas albums, and has sold millions of records worldwide. During his extensive career, he has had three songs inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, achieved 50 hits on BillboardÂ’s Adult Contemporary Chart and ranks as the all-time No. 6 album artist in the history of BillboardÂ’s pop album charts. Mathis has received ve Grammy nominations and in 2003 he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Born in 1935 in Gilmer, Texas, Mathis grew up learning songs and dance routines from his father, Clem Mathis, a vaudeville veteran. Moving with his family to San Francisco, Johnny began vocal training at 13, performing work around teacher Connie CoxÂ’s house in exchange for lessons His first gig was singing in a band formed by keyboardist Merl Saunders. According to the biography on his Facebook page, Mathis had another vocational interest in his teenage years. Mathis was a star high jumper, hurdler and basketball player in high school. He was on track to participate in the U.S. Olympic tryouts in the summer of 1955. As fate would have it, that same summer he was approached by Columbia Records A&R executive and jazz producer George Avakian. Avakian ew in to hear him sing during his weekend gig at San FranciscoÂ’s 440 Club. Mathis put on quite a show and the performance prompted Avakian to fire off the now-mythic telegram to Columbia Records in New York which read Â“Have found phenomenal 19-year-old boy who could go all the way. Send blank contracts.Â” Mathis went on to become the longest-signed artist on the Columbia Records label. In 1956, he released Â“Johnny Mathis: A New Sound in Popular Song,Â” his debut album. A sublime vocalist whose approach to pop music transcends passing fads and trends, Mathis has performed songs in an incredible variety of styles and categories Â– from music composed for stage and lm to golden era jazz standards, contemporary pop hits, and holiday music both sacred and secular Â– assuring his reputation as one of the most enduring traditional pop vocalists in music history. In addition to all this Mathis and his music have appeared in numerous lms and television programs, including Â“The Tonight Show,Â” Â“Close Encounters of the Third Kind,Â” Â“Family Ties,Â” Â“Mad MenÂ” and more. Â“Let It Be Me Â– Mathis In NashvilleÂ” (2010) and Â“Sending You A Little ChristmasÂ” (2013) both were nominated for a Grammy Awards. Â“Johnny Mathis Sings the Great New American Songbook,Â” his latest album, was released in September. Instead of focusing on the Great American Songbook as Mathis has done previously, this album features recent hits by other artists with selections dating back only as far as the 1990s. In 2016, Mathis celebrated his 60th anniversary as a recording artist. He shows no signs of slowing down. Â“I donÂ’t think about retiring,Â” Mathis says on his Facebook page. Â“I think about how I can keep singing for the rest of my life. I just have to pace myself.Â” Photo courtesy of RUTH ECKERD HALLJohnny Mathis performs Jan. 12 at Ruth Eckerd Hall.

6B Entertainment TBN, January 4, 2018Capitol to present Karla Bonoff, Livingston Taylor in concertCLEARWATER Â– Karla Bonoff and Livingston Taylor will perform Sunday, Jan. 14, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $25. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Bonoff has been described as one of the nest singer/songwriters of her generation. Her career spans four decades. During that time, she has enjoyed critical acclaim, commercial success, enduring popularity and the unwavering respect of her peers. In addition to charting with her own recordings, Bonoff has seen her songs become hits for Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd and Linda Ronstadt. There is no doubt that many of BonoffÂ’s ballads are classics. According to a biography provided by SRO Artists Inc. Bonoff has continued to tour extensively, playing sold-out shows around the world. Hearing her moving vocals on her rich, expressive songs is like standing beneath a sparkling waterfallÂ–refreshing, exhilarating, restorative. Experiencing them live can be transformative. In 2007, the singularly gifted singer/songwriter at last produced a live album. Â“Karla Bonoff LiveÂ” is a two-CD set containing 21 songs, including some of BonoffÂ’s most popular material. The track list includes songs such as Â“All My Life,Â” Â“Someone to Lay Down Beside Me,Â” Â“Tell Me WhyÂ” and Â“Lose Again.Â” The CD set also features two new compositions. Fans and critics often prefer BonoffÂ’s own renditions of her songs. Â“Karla Bonoff LiveÂ” serves up a showcase of her work. Like her performances, the instrumentation is clean and spare, giving BonoffÂ’s voice room to work its emotional magic. The two-CD set also happens to be BonoffÂ’s rst solo album since 1999, when she released the 16-song collection Â“All My Life: The Best of Karla BonoffÂ” (Columbia/Legacy). Bonoff contributed to the 2015 release Â“Looking Into You: A Tribute To Jackson Browne.Â” The album features Bonoff along with fellow artists Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Indigo Girls, David Lindley, Lyle Lovett, Keb Mo, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin and Bruce Springsteen. According to Livingston TaylorÂ’s of cial website, he was 13 when he picked up his rst guitar. That simple act led to a 50-year music career that has encompassed performance, songwriting and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate and Hugh. Livingston recorded his rst record at the age of 18 and has continued to create well-crafted, introspective and original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide. From top-40 hits Â“I Will Be in Love with YouÂ” and Â“IÂ’ll Come Running,Â” to Â“I Can Dream of YouÂ” and Â“Boatman,Â” the last two recorded by his brother James, LivingstonÂ’s creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres Â– folk, pop, gospel, jazz Â– and from upbeat storytelling and touching ballads to full orchestra performances. Livingston has never stopped performing since those early coffeehouse days, sharing the stage with major artists such as Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Fleetwood Mac, Jimmy Buffett, and Jethro Tull. To this day, he maintains a busy concert schedule, touring internationally. He is a natural performer, peppering his shows with personal stories, anecdotes and ineffable warmth that connect him to his fans. His relaxed on-stage presence belies the depth of his musical knowledge, and fans might just as often be treated to a classic Gershwin or something from the best of Broadway. Livingston is a full professor at Berklee College of Music, where he has taught a stage performance course since 1989. He teaches young artists invaluable lessons learned over the course of an extensive career on the road; the course is consistently voted the most popular at the College. His book, Stage Performance, released in 2011 offers those lessons to anyone who is interested in elevating their presentation standards to professional standards. LivingstonÂ’s 50th year of making music was celebrated by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, both declaring Jan. 18, 2017 Â“Livingston Taylor Day.Â” Photo by MIM ADKINSCapitol Theatre welcomes Livingston Taylor Jan. 14.

By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Â– Ruth Eckerd HallÂ’s 2017-18 Broadway season continues this month with Â“Mike Hammer Encore for Murder,Â” starring Gary Sandy. The season got underway last month with two seasonal shows: Â“A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on StageÂ” and Â“Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer: The Musical.Â” Among the highlights of Ruth Eckerd HallÂ’s Broadway season are no fewer than three Tony Award winners for Best Musical, including Â“A Chorus Line,Â” Â“CabaretÂ” and Â– making its Clearwater debut Â– Â“Jersey Boys.Â” And thatÂ’s just the tip of the iceberg. The season also will feature family favorites Â“Rain Â–A Tribute to The Beatles: Sgt. PepperÂ’s Lonely HeartÂ’s Club BandÂ” and Â“Kinky Boots.Â” Theatergoers also can look forward to Â“Rodgers + HammersteinÂ’s Cinderella.Â” Â“We are thrilled and proud to present a wide variety of stellar musicals this season at Ruth Eckerd Hall ranging from the Tony Award-winner Â‘Jersey Boys,Â’ for the rst time, to the iconic, Tony Award-winning smash musicals Â‘A Chorus LineÂ’ and Tony Award-winner Â‘Cabaret,Â’Â” said Zev Buffman in a press release. Buffman is Ruth Eckerd Hall Inc. president and CEO. Â“All of these musical miracles spell out great joy. I bet you can hum the tunes and tap your feet.Â” Also included in the lineup is the new mystery play Â“Mike Hammer Encore for Murder,Â” starring Gary Sandy, best known for his portrayal of Andy Travis on the classic American sitcom Â“WKRP In Cincinnati.Â” Â“Mike Hammer Encore for MurderÂ” performances will be in the all-new Murray Theatre. The show, along with the one-night return of Â“Kinky Boots,Â” are recent additions to the season. Â“Due to the overwhelming demand from our members and patrons, we were determined to present the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Â‘Kinky BootsÂ’ on the Ruth Eckerd Hall stage again this season,Â” Buffman explained. Â“In addition, we are thrilled to premiere the production of Â‘Mike Hammer Encore for Murder,Â’ starring Gary Sandy in our newest crowned-jewel of the Ruth Eckerd Hall experience, the all-new Murray Theatre. In the rst act, MikeÂ’s 45 kills six gangsters! But donÂ’t be misled, there are four-times as many laughs as killings in this all-new production.Â” Â“Encore for MurderÂ” stars Gary Sandy as Mike Hammer, the toughest PI of all, who draws a seemingly routine assignment Â– playing bodyguard to diva Rita Vance on the eve of her big Broadway comeback. Rita is an old ame of HammerÂ’s and when their romance is rekindled, the detective nds the actress facing death threats Â– and he nds himself the target of one hit man after another. When the actress disappears, the show must go on, which with Mike Hammer means swift, violent retaliation. While the cops and feds go down a false trail, Hammer seeks to make a rescue before RitaÂ’s curtain comes down. The production will feature a jazz-quartet (piano, bass, drums and saxophone) performing music on stage. Â“This story takes place in the Broadway district of New York City,Â” said Buffman, Â“from a Soho art gallery to Little Italy, to a waterfront confrontation that is way, way, off Broadway.Â” In addition to his starring role on Â“WKRP In Cincinnati,Â” Sandy has performed in over 100 theatrical productions. He played the Pirate King in the Broadway production of Â“The Pirates of Penzance,Â” the title role in Â“Barnum,Â” Chance Wayne in Â“Sweet Bird of Youth,Â” Stanley Kowalski in Â“A Streetcar Named DesireÂ” and Billy in Â“Billy Bishop Goes to War,Â” among others. Mickey Spillane was a writer of pulp detective fiction whose first novel, Â“I, The Jury,Â” introduced the character Mike Hammer. Hammer appeared in a series of mystery novels and lm adaptations (most notably Â“Kiss Me, DeadlyÂ”). Â“2018 will be marked with national celebrations of SpillaneÂ’s 100th birthday,Â” said Buffman. Â“We will be the rst to kick off this celebration in January.Â” Single tickets for Broadway performances start at $35. Broadway series packages are also available.
