Those efforts included creating a strategic plan to identify future sidewalk installation. The Great Recession slowed those plans in 2009, but engineering of cials say they are back on track and have completed the first phase of the project to assess and improve the city's sidewalks. "Since 2009, we haven't really had a chance to do much sidewalk improvements, so we really weren't sure what we had out there," said Rafal Cieslak, assistant director of the Engineering Services division. "So, the rst step of our two-phased approach was to inventory our sidewalks. We used a combination of Google Maps and going out into the eld, and we veri ed where we have sidewalks and where we have gaps." Of the city's streets, which don't include private, county or state roads, there are 144 miles of existing sidewalks and 126 miles of gaps or missing sidewalks on one or both sides of the road. City Engineer Jerald Woloszynski said the top priority is to close the sidewalk gap near schools to help enable and encourage children to walk to school. The assessment found that the city has 67 miles of sidewalk within a half-mile of schools and 52 miles of gaps. Cieslak said the goal will be to put sidewalks on one side of the street of those areas. "As we move forward with our projects and individual sidewalk gap projects, we'll be making sure that we do have a continuous safe route for all our students to get to their schools," he said. Woloszynski said they are still compiling data, but they should have a prioritization list of those roads by the fourth quarter of this year. Other priorities will include locations hazardous to pedestrians, roads within a half-mile radius of city and county parks and recreational facilities, access to Sidewalk plan takes step forwardEngineers say rst priority will be to tackle areas near schools By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO The Recreation, Parks and Arts Department wants to expand its offerings in the southwestern part of the city by offering an after-school program that of cials say will both bene t area students and the city's coffers. City commissioners gave the department the green light to move forward and budget for the Southwest Recreation Complex program Feb. 6 during a meeting at City Hall. About two years ago, the department began offering an on-site after-school program at Highland Recreation Complex that included transportation from area schools, including Belcher, Fuguitt and Frontier elementary schools, Pinellas Prep Academy and the Pinellas Academy of Math and Science. Of cials said the program covered its cost within the rst year, which included leasing a bus, and is now generating a net revenue to the city. After reaching out to and receiving positive feedback from schools in the southwest portion of the city, such as Ridgecrest, Anona, Oakhurst and Bauder elementary schools and Plato Academy, officials said a similar program at Southwest also would be a success. The city already offers a program funded by the Juvenile Welfare Board called Promise Time, which is an extended day program of math and reading studies, but Joan Byrne, recreation, parks and arts director, said some parents are looking for something a little more active that helps their children burn off energy. "There are a number of parents who are looking for an alternative to that kind of program," she said. "That's what City looks to expand after-school offeringsProgram proposed for Southwest Rec Complex Sea-Blues FESTIVALCLEARWATER FEBRUARY 24-25 Â COACHMAN PARK DOWNTOWN CLEARWATER See FESTIVAL, page 4ACLEARWATERBlue skies.

Largo 3A Leader, February 15, 2018 AFTER-SCHOOL, from page 1A we provide at Highland and it's been very successful and we're looking to do a similar program at Southwest." Krista Pincince, assistant director of the Recreation, Parks and Arts department, said the city's program differs from the school-based one because it emphasizes physical activity and builds recreation programs into the daily activity schedule. Choices include karate, gymnastics, sports programs, tennis lessons, yoga and art lessons, and it has dedicated homework time built into it. "The program would allow staff to build instructional programs based around the amenities specific to the Southwest Recreation Complex, including the tennis center and the Olympic-sized pool that's open on a year-round basis," she said. Byrne said the biggest expense to the city would be $60,000 for the purchase of two 15-passenger vans, which would provide the department more flexibility and help cut down on any delays in picking up students from school. In order for the program, which would cost $299 a month, to generate revenue for the city, she said it would only need about 30 students to sign up. And since summer camps alone attract between 800 and 1,000 kids, she said she didn't think that would be a problem. City commissioners agreed that the program would be bene cial in several ways, including by building relationships. "I think it's a great thing," Commissioner John Carroll said. "It's a great marketing opportunity. You are reaching beyond the borders of the city of Largo." Largo Central Park is at 101 Central Park Drive. Within the park are the Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive; the Largo Feed Store, 295 Central Park Drive; and the Largo Public Library, 120 Central Park Drive.

Funds for such projects, which the master plan says can cost up to $150,000 per mile, have come from impact fees, Penny for Pinellas sales tax revenue and state grants. But Woloszynski said the city will use reconstruction or paving projects, such as those on Trotter or Rosery roads, as opportunities to x sidewalks and bundle costs. The next portion of the project will assess the condition of the sidewalks. "Phase 2, which we have planned for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, is we are going to go out there and look at the sidewalks we currently have, look at the existing conditions and look at all of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) ramps and make sure we tackle the ramps that don't meet the current ADA standards," Cieslak said.

The Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival is the only Pinellas celebration that features both a full schedule of blues artists as well as seafood selections from local restaurants and food vendors. Presented in Coachman Park, this yearly festival has become one of Clearwater's most beloved signature events, and appeals to thousands of residents and visitors during February each year. Saturday's performers include George Worthmore, The Steepwater Band, Super Doppler, Greyhounds, ZZ Ward and Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. Sunday's performers include David Julia, Rusty Wright Band, Samantha Fish, Toronzo Cannon and Ana Popovic. Schedule and artists subject are to change. Staying true to its name, guests can enjoy seafood dishes from the area's best restaurants bringing their local avors to the park. Festivalgoers may bring one sealed bottle of water per person along with a small bag (subject to inspection), blankets, palm size camera or phone, ticket, and a low-pro le lawn chair. Pets, except for assistance animals, are not permitted at Clearwater Sea-Blues. The following items and practices also are not allowed at the event: Grills or open ames of any kind Illegal drugs or substances Weapons of any kind Outside food or coolers Umbrellas and large bags Recording devices such as Go Pro, iPads and video cameras Drones Fireworks or laser pointers Tents or canopies Glass According to Kris Koch, planning for the 2018 Sea-Blues Festival started as soon as the curtains came down on last year's event. Koch is the Clearwater's planning, projects and events manager. "As soon as the event ends we pull together our team and discuss what went well and what we can improve on," Koch said. "Our primary goals are to make our guests feel safe and secure while offering them a world-class event that is fun and affordable." Koch said that organizers have a running list of artists fans would like to see. They begin working on the lineup 10 to 12 months before the festival and typically have a full lineup by September. "We use several different criteria for selecting performers," Koch explained. "What separates this festival from many other blues festivals is how we mold our lineups. For instance, this year our Saturday has modern blues performers that all have a different style and dynamic to their music and performances. Our Sunday lineup features two of the more dynamic female blues musicians that are out there right now (Ana Popovic and Samantha Fish) along with Chicago blues legend Toronzo Cannon." In addition to crafting an appealing entertainment lineup, organizers give equal attention to the festival's other important component: food. Koch said the event is an opportunity to introduce thousands of visitors to the world-class seafood scene in Clearwater. "Brands like Frenchy's and Baystar (Island Way Grill, Salt Rock Grill, Rumba) are available and showcase the food that has made them famous," Koch said. "We choose local vendors who represent our area well and try to nd vendors that offer a wide variety of items that our fans are looking for." Among this year's participating restaurants and food vendors will be the Baystar Restaurant Group, Frenchy's, Clear Sky, Crabby Bill's, GypsyFish, Rich & Rise Thai and Papa John's along with vendors selling kettle corn, ice cream and desserts. Koch said attendees could expect between 15 and 20 vendors at the event. Longtime attendees will nd a few new elements have been added to the annual event. "In addition to the great food and music that has kept fans coming back year after year, this year we are also incorporating an arts component to the festival where local artists will be creating a mural commemorating the festival," Koch said. The mural will be unveiled during the weekend's festivities. "We also will feature some live art throw-downs' where artists will be creating pieces centered around the festival that fans can vote on and then bid on also." Homeless Empowerment Project has been named as the festival's community partner. HEP will have booths around the venue where they will be raising money through raf es and auctions while spreading the word of their cause. "Other fan amenities added include an enhanced ride-share' pickup/drop-off location for those fans using a ride service to attend the festival," Koch said. "Also, the Jolley Trolley as well as the Clearwater Ferry are available for those traveling in to the event." Since its debut, the Clearwater Sea-Blues Fes-tival has continued to grow in size and popularity. Koch predicts this year's turnout will rival if not exceed recent years. "We have entertained over 58,000 fans the past three years and fully expect to break another attendance record again this year as our VIP and reserved ticket sales numbers have been great," he said. "VIP tickets are almost sold out but reserved tickets will remain available by visiting www.sea-blues.com or www.etix.com."

Following is a summary of this year's anticipated performance schedule: Saturday, Feb. 24 Noon Gates open 12:30 p.m. George Worthmore 2 p.m. The Steepwater Band 3:30 p.m. Super Doppler 5 p.m. Greyhounds 6:30 p.m. ZZ Ward 8:30 p.m. Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band Sunday, Feb. 25 Noon Gates open 12:30 p.m. David Julia 2 p.m. Rusty Wright Band 3:30 p.m. Samantha Fish 5 p.m. Toronzo Cannon 7 p.m. Ana Popovic Kenny Wayne Shepherd Saturday's headliner, hits the stage at 8:30 p.m. Ever since he taught himself to play guitar at the age of 7, Shepherd has been driven by a deeply-ingrained musical passion. He learned classic blues tunes by meticulously studying his dad's record collection. Over the course of his career, his albums have sold millions of copies worldwide and received five Grammy nominations and two Billboard Music Awards, as well as a pair of Orville H. Gibson awards, the Blues Foundation's Keeping The Blues Alive Award and two Blues Music awards. He's also scored six No. 1 blues albums and a string of No. 1 mainstream rock singles. Shepherd was just 16 when he burst onto the national scene with the release of his 1995 debut album "Ledbetter Heights." His relentless touring and success on rock radio helped to drive the album to Platinum sales status. His 1998 sophomore effort "Trouble Is " also went Platinum and gained a similar level of radio airplay. In 2017, he released "Lay It On Down." "I wanted to make an album of great American roots music, and the end result is something that I'm really pleased with," he said in a press release from Michael J. Media Group. "I wanted to play to our strengths, but I also wanted to make an album full of music that people haven't heard from us before. I'm pulling from a lot of different periods and genres on this one. I wanted to strike a balance between the heavy emotional stuff and the stuff that will put a smile on your face. A new album should feel new and refreshing, and this one de nitely feels that way to me." Festival headliner Ana Popovic performs Sunday at 7 p.m. Based in Los Angeles, Popovic was born in Serbia (formerly Yugoslavia). She grew up in a family where music was very important. Throughout her youth, her father would invite friends over for nightly jam sessions. In this atmosphere, she quickly learned her father's impressive blues and soul record collection, grabbed his guitar and started playing at the age of 15. Since then, Popovic has developed into a phenomenal guitarist/vocalist with a growing legion of fans throughout the world. Popovic is currently on the road promoting her new triple album "Trilogy." "In an era where most are skeptic about the current state and future of the music industry, I wanted Trilogy' to tell a different story," Popovic said on her website. "The record biz might be broken and Spotify might rip us off, but that can't keep an artist down. Creativity is very much alive, and music is the celebration of life." Among the other artists set to perform at this year's Clearwater Sea-Blues is The Steepwater Band a Chicago blues-rock out t. The Steepwater Band released "Shake Your Faith," their sixth full-length album, in 2016. The album was recorded ter at Crushtone Studios, in the shadows of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland, Ohio. "Shake Your Faith" was produced by the band along with studio veteran Jim Wirt, who has also worked with Fiona Apple, Incubus and the Buffalo Killers. As with most TSB albums, the sound and songwriting on "Shake Your Faith" has grown and expanded, yet retained the true nature of the band. Formed in Chicago back in 1998, The Steepwater Band's signature sound is a nod to early British blues, combined with a modern, raw and gutsy musical approach. Although the band got their start as devotees of delta blues, they have since been expanding on their in uences, absorbing everything from psychedelia to Americana, from jazz to '50s rock and roll music. Originally known as Major and the Monbacks, Super Doppler is a psychedelic rock band hailing from Norfolk, Virginia. According to Shore Fire Media, the band initially grew out of informal, after-school bedroom jams led by bassist Cole Friedman and his twin brother Neal, a gifted keyboard player and singer. Initially, the teenage musicians had a revolving door policy, with players arriving and departing. Gradually, the band's sound matured and its structure evolved into a core six-piece ensemble featuring the Friedman twins, brothers Michael and Bryan Adkins (guitar/vocals and drums), percussionist Tyler West, and guitarist/vocalist Harry Slater. After the name-change, Super Doppler released the band's sophomore effort. "Moonlight Anthems," produced by Matthew E. White of Spacebomb Records, is a raucous blend of soul, roots, and rock that tips its cap equally to Levon Helm and John Lennon. In their 11 days in the studio, Super Doppler recorded live as a band as much as possible in order to convey the excitement of their shows, but they made sure to leave time to get a little weird, too. "Some of these songs we'd been playing on the road for a year and we really wanted to capture that live energy," said Cole. "But we also wanted to experiment and overdub. We'd manipulate the tape and mess around with the analog outboard gear, and a lot of those subtleties are really important to the sound." Florida's own David Julia will kick off Sunday's musical lineup, hitting the stage at 12:30 p.m. A resident of Minneola in Lake County, Julia started performing at age 7. By age 10, he had secured a professional gig. He was on the road playing venues and festivals all over Florida by age 12. Considered a guitar prodigy, Julia knows how to deliver smokin' blues with lightening licks, killer grooves and rich vocals. To date, he's appeared with and played with some of the top names in the business such as JP Soars, Albert Castiglia, Victor Wainwright, Terry Hanck, Tom Hambridge, Selwyn Birchwood, Butch Trucks, Jarekus Singelton, Bob Margolin and Tommy Castro According to public relations agency Devious Planet, after launching her recording career in 2009, Samantha Fish quickly established herself as a rising star in the contemporary blues world. Since then, the charismatic young singer-guitarist-songwriter has earned a reputation as a rising guitar hero and powerful live performer, while releasing a series of acclaimed albums that have shown her restless creative spirit consistently taking her in new and exciting musical directions. Fish delivers some of her most compelling music to date with her 2017 release "Belle of the West," her fth studio album. The deeply soulful, personally charged 11-song set showcases Fish's sublime acoustic guitar skills as well as her rootsy, emotionally resonant songwriting. Since the 2016 release of his Alligator Records debut "The Chicago Way," contemporary blues guitarist/vocalist/songwriter (and Chicago Transit Authority bus driver) Toronzo Cannon has burst onto the international stage as one of Chicago's and the world's most acclaimed next-generation bluesmen. Cannon earned his fame through the overwhelming response to his album, the sheer force of his music, his original songs and his live charisma. Since the CD's release, he's played major cities all over the U.S., Canada and Europe, delivering one hard-rocking performance after another. According to Intrepid Artists International, Cannon's unof cial launch from local hero to national star took place in June 2015 at the world-renowned Chicago Blues Festival, where he performed as a festival headliner for the massive crowd. After announcing that he had just signed with Alligator Records, he delivered a riveting set, instantly earning tens of thousands of new fans. For more festival information, visit sea-blues. com.

Detectives began an investigation after the 17-yearold male victim called 911 and reported David A. West, who was an acquaintance, had sexually battered him. Detectives say West called the victim Feb. 10, and then picked him up and drove him back to West's residence. According to the victim, while at the residence, West told him to take off all of his clothes and then forced him into having sexual activity. After the incident, the victim called 911.

According to deputies assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team, a citizen reported early Friday morning that a Chevrolet Impala was traveling the wrong way on 54th Avenue North, and weaving in and out of traf c. An on-duty sheriff's office sergeant, driving an unmarked patrol car, observed the suspect vehicle near 68th Street North and 54th Avenue North. The sergeant did not activate his emergency lights or sirens, but he did begin to follow the vehicle. At 71st Street North and 46th Avenue North, the sergeant activated his emergency lights and siren, in an attempt to stop the vehicle. The Impala did not stop and the sergeant turned off his emergency lights and siren and did not pursue the vehicle. A short time later, a patrol deputy deployed a tire de ation device at 68th Street North and 46th Avenue North, but the Impala continued to travel recklessly. Patrol deputies relocated the vehicle at 42nd Avenue North and 66th Street North. A precision immobilization technique was attempted, but was not successful and the Impala continued traveling north on 66th Street. Deputies did not activate their lights and sirens, as they followed the Chevrolet Impala from a distance. As the suspect vehicle passed 46th Avenue North, it struck a Ford Windstar being driven by 65-year-old Bernard Deins III of Pinellas Park, as he was turning left from the southbound lanes of 66th Street North, into a gas station parking lot. The crash disabled both vehicles and the driver of the suspect vehicle, Antonio L. Trevino, was taken into custody. Deins was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threating injuries. Trevino was arrested and charged with driving under the influence with bodily injury; fleeing and eluding; reckless driving with property damage; driving while license suspended and/or revoked; possession of marijuana; and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bail was set at $13,000. Deputies say speed and impairment are factors in the crash.Man charged with rst-degree murder 8 years after shootingCLEARWATER The victim of a shooting that occurred Feb. 4, 2010, died Jan. 13, and the man accused of shooting him eight years ago has now been charged with rst-degree murder. James Riddle, 42, was transported to the Pinellas County Jail from Okeechobee Correctional Facility Feb. 5. According to detectives assigned to the sheriff's Robbery/Homicide Unit, detectives responded to a drug-related shooting about 8 a.m. Feb. 4, 2010 on 57th Avenue North in unincorporated St. Petersburg. John Roland, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene. Aaron Reny, 30, was being treated at a local hospital for multiple gunshot wounds.

7A Leader, February 15, 2018 021518L
8A Viewpoints Leader, February 15, 2018If you have several hours, or days, with nothing to do, you might want to plow into HB 7055, the everexpanding education bill that is steamrolling through the Florida House. This is the latest Republican move to reform Democrats would say ruin public education in Florida. It is 198 pages of legalese, the kind of document that keeps lawyers and lobbyists employed, and it is 89 pages longer than it was before but probably not as long as it eventually will be. Opponents are combing through it for legal land mines as we speak. I am sure they will nd many. The bill hits the usual GOP talking points about public schools vs. charter schools, with a few novel ideas. It would allow high-performing principals to serve multiple schools instead of just one, which proves the lawmaker who came up with this idea has never actually spent time in the front of ce of a public school. Keeping one school running smoothly is a great accomplishment these days, what with screaming parents, lawyers at the ready, law enforcement on call, cranky teachers, idiotic demands from the downtown of ce and Tallahassee, and all the other daily joys associated with that job. A measure like this proposal is the surest way to turn a high-performing leader into a burnt shell casing looking into alternative career options. The bill would authorize $400 scholarships for third-graders struggling with reading, presumably to get additional help. That's not a bad idea by itself, as long as there are suf cient safeguards for how the money is spent. There also is an attempt to give victims of bullying more options. Let's just boil all this down, though. Not content with the sweeping education changes jammed through the Legislature during the special session last year, Republicans are back for more. We don't even know the impact of all the stuff they did in 2017, and now there is this bill approaching War & Peace length that would further disrupt the way children in this state receive their education. Well, we knew this was coming. House Speaker Richard Corcoran promised he would be back for more this year after last year's contentious battle, so HB 7055 is no surprise. And with a solid march-in-step Republican majority in both chambers, there is a strong likelihood that most, if not all, of these measures will get through. Democrats have screamed well, squeaked their opposition, but there is nothing they can do about it. Teachers unions will holler, educators will picket and protest, and so what? Until Democrats can figure out a way to bring balance to Tallahassee, they are a footwipe for an emboldened GOP determined to fundamentally change the way Florida taxes, spends, educates, and conducts daily life. This further reminds everyone that Florida essentially is a one-party system right now, and that party is winning. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. LETTERS Elections about running a city, not ruining itEditor: I am reminded as I write this of the refrain "What a Difference a Day Makes." However, in this case the reference is to a better part of a year. Some months ago, I wrote a letter, published in the Beach Beacon, glowingly describing Madeira Beach as "The Jewel in the Necklace that is the Barrier Islands dotting the Coast of Pinellas County." I am certain many will recall that a few years earlier the city had been described as the political laughing stock of Florida's west coast. The changes that made this possible occurred when a group of fedup and disillusioned citizens, seeing Pat Shontz as a beacon for positive change, encouraged her in her successful bid for the of ce of mayor. Subsequently, Travis Palladeno replaced Pat who later returned when, along with Terry Lister and Nancy Hodges, the three were elected to the commission. It was these people, along with City Manager Shane Crawford, who were responsible over the next few years for moving the city forward. They were the people responsible for the replacement of a dilapidated city hall and re station, the addition of the rec center, the revamping of the park system, and the myriad of other improvements we enjoy today. Most important, however, was their effort to return dignity and comity to our public meetings, and to repair our reputation. All of this encouraged a renewed interest in building and reconstruction, increases in our tax base and real estate values, and improvement in the business climate responsible for the revitalization of areas like Johns Pass Village. Contrast this with the situation that exists today. Those who read the recent article by John Romano in the Tampa Bay Times, had they not already been aware, are certainly informed by now that City Hall is once again being referred to as a House of Clowns. All of this begs the questions what happened, why, and who is responsible? All one has to do is attend a current meeting of the Board of Commissioners to see for themselves. One will nd a city managed by those who took advantage of voter apathy to usurp the reins of political power in the city. They had been unsuccessful in their attempt to reverse board decisions they disliked and they were out to get those they felt had slighted them. They can be seen at the meetings, so bent on exercising their political vendetta that they fail to govern. Not satis ed with having unseated the mayor and two commissioners, they sacked City Manager Shane Crawford, City Clerk Cheryl Crawford, and Recreation Supervisor Doug Andrew, then made life dif cult for anyone who dared opposed them. An example of their ineptitude can be seen in the way they are playing musical chairs with the most important job in the city, city manager. So obsessed were they with discrediting those who had contributed so much toward making Madeira Beach a great place to live they failed to do the job entrusted to them, running the city. At least the citizens of this city can now relax, content in the knowledge there is little left to ruin! Robert A. Shaw Madeira BeachFair press or fake news?Editor: Freedom of the press is one of the most important First Amendment rights that is guaranteed by the constitution. However, is it possible that the media has taken this right too far? Is the job of the media to create news or just to report it? While the media has a right to report the news, their job is not to shape public opinion based on their personal views. I believe that we all agree that the press has been guilty of shaping public opinion based on their personal views, and I also believe that President Trump has not helped the situation by calling much of the press "fake news," but the real question is how to resolve the problem. Chuck Graham Pinellas Park Herewith are some ideas and notions that occurred to me recently as I caught up on news via TV and the Internet: TV advertisements often give a big clue to what Americans really care about. Current examples: "How white are my teeth?" and "How do I get rid of bathroom odors?" Kind of makes you proud of our value system. Must TV anchors and news teams always act so cheerful and chipper? Are they forbidden to be straight-forward and natural? Come on, kiddies. Give us the news, forget the charm. Our population must suffer an enormous number of personal and accident injuries to warrant the surprising number of attorney advertisements. Our TV ads and roadside billboards seem to carry the same message: "Has anyone ever harmed you in any way? Of course they have! So call my law rm, and we will nail the b*****ds!" On Feb. 5 the stock market suffered its largest one-day drop in history. I must assume we can blame it on President Trump. After all, he took credit for the market's record-breaking achievements during his entire rst year in of ce. On the other hand, I'm told that computer programs can automatically buy and sell stocks, using mathematical tools known as algorithms. Could algorithms be used in heaven, to allow God to decide who should be admitted, and who rejected? The incidence of flu in our country continues, and is frightening. I wondered "When does a widespread, persistent disease of cially become an epidemic? One answer I found: an epidemic occurs when a disease attacks many people at the same time and may spread throughout one or several communities. It is declared pandemic when the disease becomes worldwide. Trump recently called Democrats "treasonous." He will probably repeat that statement several times. He tends to repeat many of his pronouncements. He needs the extra time to think up new pearls, such as calling congressman Adam Schiff "little Adam." Two fatal Amtrak rail crashes have occurred within one week. Exact causes of these accidents may have been determined by the time you read this. I wonder how many rail passenger cancellations have taken place as a result. Although the railroads have normally maintained a good safety record, it does not compare well with that of the passenger aircraft industry. Should Tampa Bay travelers be comforted that they have the option of using not just one, but two, wellestablished airports? I vote "yes." A news item you may have heard: The Pentagon has again lost track of many dollars in its budget. Maybe we should bring some of our soldiers home from the Mideast wars and replace them with Pentagon accountants and administrators. Another advertising note: Is anybody else out there weary of the ad that touts a medicine made from jelly sh? It may be a perfectly good drug, but why must the same ad be repeated month after month? I pity my fellow viewers. Not to mention the poor jelly sh. On Feb. 6 a rich man named Elon Musk and his associates successfully launched the world's most powerful rocket toward the sun and other places. I predict that before many years have passed science will routinely place humans on Mars and bring them home safely. But we will still have found no preventive cure for shingles or migraine headaches. The Winter Olympics are underway in South Korea. Talented gure skaters are jumping into the air and spinning four times before landing back on the ice. I will watch them and wonder how such feats are achieved. I also wonder why almost all the jump-spins are done counter-clockwise. Question for all computer users: Have you noticed that when you accept offers from big-deal digital entities to update your computer, you often wish you hadn't? At least for a while? Every time I give the okay to update, my computer tends to go off the rails for a few weeks. Right now I'm being urged to switch from Google to Google Chrome to do my browsing. I refuse, partly because no one answers the question "Why?" Bob DriverÂ’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.Hail to the chiefs some quotesWhether or not you plan to celebrate President's Day (snickering allowed), here's my gift to you. I challenged myself to excavate some famous quotes from or about U.S. presidents that you may have forgotten or haven't heard. Calvin Coolidge, whose quiet demeanor at parties may have earned him the nickname "Silent Cal," said, "It takes a great man to be a good listener." However, my favorite Coolidge line was his response to a person sitting next to him at a dinner party. The individual, said to be Dorothy Parker, made a bet that she could get more than two words out of him. "You lose," Coolidge said. I like Ike. Looking back at the presidents who've served since I was born, I've come to appreciate President Dwight D. Eisenhower more and more as the years have gone by, especially for his cautious views when it came to national defense. The supreme allied commander in Europe, key leader of the Normandy invasion, Eisenhower alerted Americans to the dangers of the military industrial complex as president in 1953. His Chance for Peace speech bears repeating for generations to come. Here's an excerpt: "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket red signi es, in the nal sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children." I also liked Teddy. Reformist, environmentalist, trust buster, T.R. Roosevelt's actions cut a wide swath; his bust rightfully belongs on Mt. Rushmore. Bet Roosevelt would agree. His daughter, Alice Roosevelt Longworth had this to say about her father: "When Theodore attends a wedding, he wants to be the bride, and when he attends a funeral, he wants to be the corpse." Though the press has had a field day with some of Donald Trump's disparaging remarks against his adversaries, many of his predecessors also assailed their political rivals, among them short-tempered but witty Andrew Jackson. Jackson gave no quarter to Henry Clay, the brilliant secretary of state and former speaker of the House "He is certainly the basest, meanest scoundrel that ever disgraced the image of God," Jackson said. Tell us what you really think, Andrew. Harry Truman also had a way with words. "Richard Nixon is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he'd lie just to keep his hand in," Truman said. Probably said the same thing about Stalin. Give 'em hell, Harry. President Ronald Reagan came up with some zingers, too. After the assassination attempt on his life in 1981, as he was moved to the operating table, he said to the doctor, "Please tell me you are all Republicans." George Washington also had a sense of humor. A delegate to the Constitutional Convention proposed limiting the country's military to 5,000 men. Washington opened up a can of sarcasm. He agreed to it with "as long as a stipulation was added that no invading army could number more than 3,000 troops." In the annals of history, I bet Honest Abe will always stand tall. His intuitive sense of humor served him well. During the American Civil War, Gen. Ulysses Grant was accused of being a drunkard. As the story goes, Lincoln wanted to know more: "I wish some of you would tell me the brand of whiskey that Grant drinks," he said. "I would like to send a barrel of it to my other generals." Much has been written and misinterpreted about Lincolns' views on slavery, but one sentence he wrote to a newspaper editor speaks volumes: "If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong," Lincoln said. Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of the magnificent book "Teams of Rivals," recalled the words attributed to Leo Tolstoy, the Russian author of "War and Peace." Though in the early 1900s he lived in a remote region of the world called the North Caucasus, Tolstoy knew that Lincoln was "worshipped around the world." "We are still too near to his greatness," Tolstoy said, "but after a few centuries more our posterity will nd him considerably bigger than we do. His genius is still too strong and too powerful for the common understanding, just as the sun is too hot when its light beams directly on us." And we may still be too near to his greatness. John F. Kennedy also had a sense of humor and could laugh about himself. When asked by a reporter about his views on the Republican National Committee passing a measure to state his failure as president, he said, "I presume it passed unanimously." Asked what his favorite song is, Kennedy said, "I think Hail to the Chief' has a nice ring to it." If you have some favorite quotes from or about the presidents, please send them to me.

Community 9A Leader, February 15, 2018 School NotebookLargo teacher nominated for national awardLARGO Susan Barber, a kindergarten teacher at Oakhurst Elementary School, 10535 137th St, Largo, has been nominated for the 2017-2018 national LifeChanger of the Year award. Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, the national LifeChanger of the Year program recognizes and rewards the best K-12 public and private school educators and employees across the United States. Barber has been an educator for 29 years, teaching roughly 520 students during that time. She was nominated by her daughter, Kristen Lintz, who credited her mother as the reason she became an educator. "From the time I was a child to the time I graduated college, I have been hearing the same thing about my mother as a teacher, not only from other educators and students, but from parents of students as well," said Lintz. "She makes an Easter bunny cake every year, buys shoes for students that did not have their own, and brings in hand-me-down clothing for students in need. She does everything in her power to make sure her students feel safe and loved, not only at school, but at home." Each school year, LifeChanger of the Year receives hundreds of nominations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Seventeen individual LifeChanger of the Year awards will be given during the 20172018 school year. Winners are announced via surprise award ceremonies held at their schools. The grand prize nalists will also be honored at a national awards ceremony in spring 2018 in Bermuda. Winners are chosen by a selection committee comprised of former winners and education professionals. Nominees must be K-12 teachers or school district employees.

We're finally starting to see a reduction in the number of cold fronts coming through each week. We've had three to four fishable days each week the past two weeks. Water temperatures are on the rise, bringing in the rst schools of bait, which is a sure sign of spring. Finding live bait can be sporadic at best this time of year. However, there are pilchards and thread n herring around. Cast netting bridge shadow lines at night can yield a variety of bait suitable for inshore fishing. After sunrise, keep an eye out for high diving pelicans. Capturing the larger baitfish requires the pelicans to dive from greater heights and at a straight down angle. Catching fast moving baits in deeper water such as this requires a heavy net with at least a pound and a half of weight per foot. Seatrout are staged around the spoil islands right now as they are in pre-spawn aggregations, awaiting water temperatures to consistently hold over 70 degrees. Targeting the middle of the incoming tide has been the key for all shallow water species as of late because it has coincided with the warm part of the day. Free-lining live baits along the color changes where sand transitions to grass will put your baits in the zone. Pilchards will work best as far as baitfish are concerned. However, shrimp will still entice the fish into biting, but the pinfish sure like them, too. Top arti cial baits would include the Heavy Mirro-dine in olive back and soft plastics in natural shrimp colors rigged on a quarter ounce jig head. Red shing has been good overall. The number of quality sized red sh that we are seeing on the ats right now is very encouraging. Spring redfish like to school in shallow water, causing them to be very skittish. Staying as far away from the sh as possible and allowing them to swim through your baits is key. Live select shrimp are still working well, but most of our big sh lately have come on the larger sized pilchards free-lined with their tail trimmed a bit so they don't ee the zone. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com.

10A Community Leader, February 15, 2018 By MARK SCHANZTBN CorrespondentDUNEDIN City commissioners decided to take a six-month hiatus on their parking plan, to review it and establish public education program to ensure better public acceptance. Once completed, the parking plan will likely include three-hour, time-limit enforced, free parking along Main Street. After a staff review, street parking along North Douglas and Broadway may also be free for three hours but time enforced. The city will hire a company to dole out nes of $10 and then $30 to repeat parking violators. When it comes to the parking garage on Douglas or public lots on Monroe or Wood Street, the city will charge $1.50 an hour, with the opportunity to purchase a $5 pass for those who wish to stay a longer duration and not worry about the time. Commissioners John Tornga and Moe Freaney supported only charging $1 to park in the garage or paid lots. Tornga noted the city is charging to park "where we want the people to park in the rst place, but we are not charging in other areas where we don't want them to park." Freaney added charging just a dollar looks better psychologically. However, she added, she feels better about the $1.50 an hour charge, since downtown visitors will have the option to buy a $5 pass and stay all day or night. Kiosks will no longer be used along Main Street, but they will become the payment method in the garage and public lots to the dismay of some commissioners. The public dislikes the current kiosk system, said Mayor Julie Ward Bujalski. Especially annoying is its handling of credit cards, which is unlike the swipe method used everywhere else. Commissioner Tornga disagreed. "I watched thousands of transactions. I watched people use it comfortably," he said. "We did a survey and the people overwhelmingly hated the kiosks. In a survey 70 to 80 percent hated them," Ward Bujalski said. Commissioners asked the city manager to research how the kiosk can be retooled to be more user friendly and search for rms offering alternative pay stations. "Find a kiosk that isn't going to constantly be an annoyance," the mayor suggested. Freaney noted many people liked using the pay app and any pay station should offer the ability to utilize it. Tornga added, "people I talked to really love using the mobile app. It's an advantage." The city manager said during the 6-month moratorium staff will undertake a major public education initiative to explain the revised parking plan and install wayfinding signs to promote the paid parking lots and garage. Freaney said "we can go around and around forever and in some way we have. We have a good compromise plan. We have a reasonable compromise plan; let it evolve. What we are doing doesn't fit textbook thinking, but we are delightfully different Dunedin. A six-month breather is good. Our goal is to nd a scally responsible way to pay for parking, without losing the charm of city." Tornga said the city now has to be exible and review the plan on a quarterly basis, adding that the entire parking program has to evolve again." A suggestion by Commissioner Heather Gracy to take a one year break from initiating another parking plan did not gain support. Commissioners unanimously agreed to the six-month hiatus and to allow staff to work on the recommended revised parking plan. In other parking matters, commissioners were surprised to learn that the newly built parking garage on North Douglas Avenue, which opened earlier this month, has no security cameras on its main oor which invites public parking. The upper floor, which will eventually be used by staff and customers of a privately developed retail component, already has security cameras installed. During a recent downtown parking plan review, developer Joseph Kokolakis told commissioners the conduits are in place on the first floor of the garage, if the city wishes to hire a rm to install security cameras. After learning about the omission, Ward Bujalski noted she would feel safer just knowing cameras were in place in public parking areas. If something does happen authorities can refer to the recordings and solve the case, she said. Freaney agreed with the mayor, adding "it's a big huge space and in this day and age we would want it monitored in some fashion." The mayor asked City Manager Jennifer K. Bramley to look into acquiring a security system for the garage. Gracy questioned whether cameras might open the city up to legal issues. "We would not be the rst city with cameras in a public parking garage," Bramley said. The city manager explained when staff received word that the rst oor of the garage was granted its certificate of occupancy they suggested the public should be permitted to park. Access to the parking garage is currently only available from Monroe Street and not Douglas, until the retail component is completed. Kokolakis said those currently using first floor parking are surrounded by a construction site, as workers finish the retail component and second floor. He said he agreed to the first floor being opened for the public good.Dunedin to take 6 months to review parking planProgram to include 3-hour free parking along Main Street 021517 Jim HobsonASE Certi ed Master Mechanic ASE Advanced Engine Performance Certi ed Master Automotive Technician 40 Years Experience 9660 Seminole Blvd., Suite B Seminole, FL 33772Next to Pinch-A-Penny & Snyders Transmissions Oil Changes Air Conditioning Tune-Ups Check Engine Light Under the Hood Under the Auto Tires & Brakes Heating & Cooling Ignition & Electrical Oil & Filter SpecialIncludes 24 Point Safety Inspection & Disposal FeeMon.-Fri. 7:30-6:00pm Sat. 7:30-1:00pmPick up and Delivery Available727-851-9838 We x all models Foreign & Domestic Computer Reprograming Available for GM, Chrysler & Ford Vehicles 1996-2014.

Tickets start at $35. Call 727-822-3590 or visit mypalladium.org. The platinum-selling singer-songwriter launched his Magnetic Tour Feb. 9 in Cherokee, North Carolina. The tour will take Phillips to cities such as Philadelphia, Boston, New York City and Los Angeles. For a complete list of tour dates and more information, visit www.phillipphillips.com. Since the arrival of his sophomore album Â“Behind the LightÂ” Â– a 2014 release featuring the Top 10 hit Â“Raging FireÂ” Â– Phillips has endured some life-changing shake-ups, both positive and painful. So, when it came time to create his third album Â“Collateral,Â” the Georgia-bred singer/songwriter channeled all that upheaval into his most penetrating and powerful selection of songs so far. Â“ThereÂ’s been a lot of heartbreak and frustration for me over the past few years, but thereÂ’s also been so much joy and love,Â” said Phillips, whoÂ’s now 27, in a press release from Mick Management. Â“All these different emotions ended up coming out in the new songs, and I kept coming back to the idea of good and bad happening right alongside each other.Â” Â“CollateralÂ” was released on Jan. 19 on Interscope Records. Along with adding a new degree of depth and complexity to his songwriting, Â“CollateralÂ” expands on the guitar-driven yet soulful sound first revealed in PhillipsÂ’s five-times-platinum debut single Â“Home.Â” In achieving that broader sonic palette, Phillips joined forces with an eclectic lineup of producers that includes Grammy Award-winner Dave Cobb, Ryan Hadlock and Nathan Chapman. Â“IÂ’m excited to show people who the new Phillip is,Â” says Phillips of the new album. Â“These songs tell the stories about the past three years Â– all the good, all the bad, all the sad, all the happy. I promise this next release is worth the wait.Â” Striking Matches also will perform. Sarah Zimmermann grew up outside Philadelphia and had mastered the clarinet, violin and guitar before middle school. Justin Davis, who is from Atlanta, began playing guitar at an early age, inspired by the music he heard at home Â– Sam Cooke, Petula Clark, Eric Clapton, Otis Redding, Ray Charles and Steely Dan. The two began working together when a professor at Belmont University in Nashville paired them up for class projects. Soon they were penning originals together. Nine of their songs were performed in the rst four seasons of the hit television show Â“Nashville.Â” In addition to numerous headline outings, Striking Matches have opened for Train and toured the U.S. with The Secret Sisters on a co-headline tour.

The live album will follow the bandÂ’s 2016 release Â“Rattle & RoadÂ” and their eponymous 2014 album, which won the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album and scored them four International Bluegrass Music Association Awards for Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year, Instrumental Group of the Year, and Gospel Recorded Performance. The Earls of LeicesterÂ’s oeuvre features songs originally recorded by bluegrass giants Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. In addition to Douglas, the band features some of bluegrass and countryÂ’s nest musicians, including singer and guitarist Shawn Camp, bassist Barry Bales, ddler Johnny Warren, banjo player Charlie Cushman, and mandolinist Jeff White. The band released its eponymous debut in 2014 to immediate acclaim. It became overwhelmingly clear that 21st century listeners couldnÂ’t get enough of the EarlsÂ’ re-creations of songs sown by a pioneering duo more than half a century ago. With their second album Â“Rattle & RoarÂ” (Rounder Records), the Earls conjured up a fresh batch of Flatt and Scruggs songs, delivered with the EarlsÂ’ now signature blend of homage, virtuosity and perspective. The inimitable Douglas remains the bandÂ’s producer and hypnotic dobroist; blue-ribbon songwriter, singer, and producer Camp still soars on lead vocals and guitar; revered multi-instrumentalist and sideman White now deftly handles high harmony and mandolin. Â“ItÂ’s like the band was predestined to come together,Â” said Camp in a press release from High Road Touring. Â“We all love it. From the very rst note of our show, I look around and everybodyÂ’s got a smile on their face. ThereÂ’s just something about the music that makes you feel good.Â” Live, the Earls also take turns rushing in for solos. Douglas describes his and his bandmatesÂ’ hotfooting in vivid detail, from Cushman Â“creeping up the middleÂ” to WarrenÂ’s deep-rooted antics. Â“Johnny will come swooping in from the side singing the quartet or come around the back and go between the singers to play a solo,Â” Douglas said. Â“ThereÂ’s a lot of choreography employed on stage. Johnny does that because thatÂ’s the way his father did it, and thatÂ’s the way heÂ’s going to do it.Â” The Earls of Leicester have discovered a kind of magic that, when harnessed, allows moments once relegated to memories to roar back to life. Â“Many audience members have come up to me after a show and said, Â‘I thought that sound was gone,Â’Â” said Douglas. Â“And thatÂ’s just how it struck me when the band rehearsed the first time. I hadnÂ’t heard that sound since Flatt and Scruggs Â– experienced that meeting in the air of those notes in that particular way. ItÂ’s an emotional experience.Â” Special guest Early James is a folk/blues musician based in Birmingham, Alabama. At age 23 he has been playing music for eight years. He attempts to spin what perhaps has not been spun before; a so-called Â“freshÂ” take on folk, blues, jazz, and country with dark, rusty, crooner-esque stylings.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show. Call 727-822-3590 or visit www.mypalladium. org. One City Chorus features more than 100 singers and was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to a better understanding among people of differing races, cultures, creeds and communities. Their songs of social justice, civil rights, diversity and equality are just what is needed in these turbulent times. Creative Loa ng has called their performances Â“joyous, uplifting and beautifully sungÂ” and presented them with a Best of the Bay award for Best Voices Raised Together in Song. Their debut at the Palladium last spring was almost sold out. The chorusÂ’ repertoire features songs with themes of social justice, civil rights, diversity and equality Â– songs such as Â“AinÂ’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around,Â” Â“May the Light of Love,Â” Â“Save the Country,Â” Â“Revolution,Â” Â“Peace Salaam Shalom,Â” Â“Turn this World AroundÂ” and Â“Teach Your Children.Â” The group is led by Jon Arterton, who holds a masterÂ’s degree in choral conducting from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and an MFA in acting from Smith College. He was the founder and musical arranger of The Flirtations, the a cappella singing group seen in the lm Â“PhiladelphiaÂ” and on HBO, Â“Good Morning AmericaÂ” and MTV. He conducted the 150-voice Outer Cape Chorale, a community chorus in Provincetown, Massachusetts, for 13 years before moving to the Tampa Bay area in January 2016. One City Chorus will be joined by St. PeteÂ’s equally exuberant tribal-disco-gypsy-bluegrass band, the Urban Gypsies of Florida. Multiple Grammy winner George Benson to play CapitolCLEARWATER Â– George Benson, 10-time Grammy winner, will perform Tuesday, Feb. 20, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $85. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. Benson is appreciated as both a musician and performer Â– playing the dual role of expert improviser and vibrant entertainer, rounding out his singular approach with a strong sense of swing. He is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time, with over 50 million albums sold, nine No. 1 albums and three No. 1 singles. In 2009, he was the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Award. Benson began his career as a guitarist working the corner pubs of his native Pittsburgh. Legendary jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery came across Benson early on, complimenting him and urging him to continue his already impressive work. In the early Â‘60s Benson apprenticed with organist Brother Jack McDuff. He found the organistÂ’s gritty swing a fertile ground for the sly, con dent and adventurous guitar lines that earned him an early reputation as a master. By the time legendary talent scout John Hammond signed Benson to Columbia, the guitaristÂ’s name was becoming known throughout the industry. In the late 1960s he sat in on Miles DavisÂ’ Miles in the Sky sessions and also put a personal spin on the tunes from the BeatlesÂ’ Abbey Road. Joining the CTI label in 1970, Benson was united with many of jazzÂ’s nest instrumentalists and released classic albums, such as Beyond the Blue Horizon. In 1976 legendary producer Tommy LiPuma paired with Benson and the result was BreezinÂ’, the rst jazz record to attain platinum sales and the rst Jazz record to win a Grammy for Album of the Year. This was his rst in a long association with Warner Brothers Records with such hits as his soulful rendition of Leon RussellÂ’s Â“This Masquerade,Â” which featured the guitarist scatting along with his solo break. He followed up with many pop hits including a sultry version of Â“On BroadwayÂ” and the irresistible Â“Give Me the Night,Â” written by the late, great Rod Temperton and produced by Quincy Jones. In 2006, Benson and Al Jarreau released Â“GivinÂ’ It UpÂ” through Concord Music Group, BensonÂ’s current label. They garnered two more Grammy Awards for the project. Benson continues to tour the world to sold out audiences and release recordings such as Â“Guitar ManÂ” and Â“An Unforgettable Tribute to Nat King Cole.Â” Photo courtesy of CAPITOL THEATREGeorge Benson performs Feb. 20 at Capitol Theatre in Clearwater.

4B Entertainment Leader, February 15, 2018Virtuoso mandolin player Sierra Hull to perform at Capitol Theatre CLEARWATER Â– Sierra Hull will perform Friday, Feb. 16, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $18. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin player, astonishing audiences and fellow musicians alike. Now a seasoned touring musician in her mid-20s, Hull has delivered her most inspired, accomplished, and mature recorded work to date. Â“Weighted Mind,Â” released in January 2016, is a landmark achievement, not just in HullÂ’s career, but in the world of folk-pop, bluegrass, and acoustic music overall. The album earned Hull her rst Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. With instrumentation comprised largely of mandolin, bass, and vocals, Â“Weighted MindÂ” is genre-transcending music at its best, with production by Bla Fleck and special harmony vocal guests Alison Krauss, Abigail Washburn and Rhiannon Giddens adding to the luster. Â“She plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved,Â” said Fleck in a press release from Rounder Records. Â“And now her vocals and songwriting have matured to the level of her virtuosity.Â” Â“I think sheÂ’s endless,Â” said Krauss, who has won more Grammy awards than any female artist in history. Â“I donÂ’t see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare, and I donÂ’t think it stops. ItÂ’s round.Â” Hull speaks eloquently, in her challenging and sensitive originals, her heartfelt vocals, and once again breaks new ground on the mandolin. Fleck serves as special guest on banjo on two tracks and duo partner Ethan Jodziewicz not only anchors the record on bass, but introduces us to a major new instrumental voice. Hull came to us as a bluegrass thrush, a teen prodigy. Krauss called her to the Grand Ole Opry stage when Hull was 11 years old. Two years later, she signed with Rounder Records, and soon became known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist, and a recording artist of high order. She made two acclaimed albums. She played the White House, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. She became the rst bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music. For Hull, Â“Weighted MindÂ” is a turning point. It is the part of the artistÂ’s journey where preternatural talent evolves into something more. What she felt at 22 was not what she felt at 12, and the music Hull was writing and playing at home was different from the music she was making on stages. Â“In some way, I was needing to run from the thing that everybody thought I was being,Â” Hull said at the time of the albumÂ’s release when she was 24. Â“Even when I was fronting a band, IÂ’d always been an ensemble player.Â” Hull explained. Â“To do something by myself made me rethink everything.Â” Fleck helped her begin the process when he asked her to play for him her new songs, without accompaniment Â– just voice and mandolin. Â“Sierra lives in the border area where new ideas mix to create hybrids, and sometimes brand new directions,Â” he said. Â“Her own voice was quietly telling her something that was hard to hear over all the advice she was getting.Â” Hull found new ways to play the new songs sheÂ’d written. In short time, what had been arduous now seemed genuine and innate. Her songs did not remain bare of all but mandolin and voice, though those are the essential elements. Jodziewicz, a marvel in his own right provided resonance and rhythmic complexity. FleckÂ’s banjo adorns the courtly Â“Queen of Hearts/Royal Tea.Â” Krauss, Washburn and Giddens add enchanting harmonies. Bluegrass roots inform and inspire this soundscape, but bluegrass does not define or limit Â“Weighted Mind.Â” This is not bluegrass music, or chamber music, or pop music. This is original music, from a virtuoso who tells the truth and speaks from herself. Hull wrote 11 of the 12 songs on Â“Weighted Mind,Â” penning some with co-writers Jon Weisberger, Zac Bevill and Josh Shilling, and writing Â“Stranded,Â” Â“Wings of the Dawn,Â” Â“Birthday,Â” Â“Lullaby,Â” Â“IÂ’ll Be Fine,Â” and Â“Black RiverÂ” on her own. Â“The moment you start to be yourself, thereÂ’s an honesty about that, that people connect with,Â” she said. Â“This album feels like the story of my early 20s, of that searching. Now, it feels like everything worked out the way it was supposed to.Â” Sierra Hull, performing Feb. 16 at Capitol Theatre, considers her 2016 album Â“Weighted MindÂ” a kind of turning point in her artistic growth.

PETERSBURG Â– Gene Watson will perform Monday, Feb. 19, 7:30 p.m., at The Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $39. Call 727822-3590 or visit mypalladium.org. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Watson is recognized as one of the leading voices of real country music, often called traditional or classic country.

In 2017, Watson was awarded the prestigious title of Entertainer of the Year by his peers as members of the R.O.P.E. Awards voted and presented him their highest accolade. Watson released his 34th studio album Dec. 8. Â“My Gospel Roots,Â” a country gospel album, is being distributed by New Day Christian Distributors. Â“Old Roman Soldier,Â” a single, has been released to radio as a follow up to WatsonÂ’s No. 1 gospel hit Â“Help Me.Â” WatsonÂ’s country classics include Â“Love in the Hot Afternoon,Â” Â“Paper Rosie,Â” Â“Farewell Party,Â” Â“Should I Come Home (Or Should I Go Crazy),Â” Â“When We Were Down to Nothing (Nothing Sure Looked Good on You)Â” and Â“Fourteen Carat Mind.Â” On his 2009 album release Â“A Taste of the Truth,Â” Watson and Rhonda Vincent scored a No. 1 for their single Â“Staying Together.Â” Vincent and Watson went on to record an all duets album in 2010 which has proven to be a fan favorite. Watson has recorded with George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Trace Adkins, Joe Nichols, Mark Chesnutt and Connie Smith. Watson is one of the rare singers who still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and his audiences respond with standing ovations night after night when he nails the octave-jumping last note on his most requested song, the now country classic Â“Farewell Party.Â” Considered one of the finest pure-country singers of his generation and known as Â“The SingerÂ’s SingerÂ” Watson offers up one of the best traditional country shows in the business. His stunning voice captivates audiences and keeps his fans coming back again and again. Lee Alcorn will open the show.

With a track record of eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards (plus a staggering 32 nominations), a 2012 Golden Globe nomination, and five American Music Awards, Blige is a global superstar. In the ensuing years, the singer/songwriter has attracted an intensely loyal fan base responsible for propelling worldwide sales of more than 50 million albums. Following the conclusion of The King and Queen of Hearts World Tour with Maxwell, Blige nalized her 13th album Â“Strength of a Woman.Â” The album was released in April 2017.

Â“Love Yourself,Â” the albumÂ’s latest single, features vocals from Kanye West as well as production by DJ Camper. The single once again proves Blige to be at the top of her game, displaying the songstressÂ’ signature R&B sound while delivering yet another powerful and soulful vocal performance. According to her official website, Blige was born in the Bronx, New York. She began moving people with her soulful voice when at 18 she signed with Andre HarrellÂ’s Uptown Records in 1989, becoming the MCA-distributed labelÂ’s youngest and rst female artist. In uenced at an early age by the music of Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Gladys Knight, Blige brought her own gritty, urban-rooted style Â– fusing hip-hop, soul and honest, frank lyrics Â– to the forefront on her 1992 debut album Â“WhatÂ’s the 411?Â” The multi-platinum set, executive produced by Sean Â“DiddyÂ” Combs, quickly spun off several chart-toppers, including the R&B No. 1 hits Â“You Remind MeÂ” and Â“Real Love.Â” Amalie Arena welcomes Mary J.

Farmer Photography Lindsey Schenker and Casey Becker Â October 7, 2017 Â Tampa Bay Watch Â CCS Photography When planning their weddings, couples must give consideration to the needs of their families. Even though a wedding is about the union of two people, oftentimes couples engaged to be married must contend with the politics of divorce or other familial issues. This includes if and how to incorporate stepparents and stepsiblings into the ceremony and celebration. There are no traditional rules regarding how to handle blended families, so bridesand grooms-to-be can customize their decisions based on their own unique situations. Even when families have been happy through the years, the unique circumstances and traditions surrounding the nuptials can dredge up former insecurities, and certain aspects may require extra patience and tact. HereÂ’s how to navigate the process. Â Consider stepparents and stepsiblings VIPs. Brides and grooms who are not particularly close to their stepfamilies still have to recognize the role they play in the family dynamics. These people are still family, so respect and courtesy should be offered. If there is any lingering animosity, extend the olive branch on this day and try not to let anyone be made to feel as if they are unimportant. A simple announcement of who stepparents are at the wedding reception or inclusion of their names on wedding itineraries can help smooth over any potential bumps. Â Put othersÂ’ needs before your own. While the wedding may be about you and your future spouse, you must consider the feelings of others. Biological parents and stepparents may act defensively if they feel uncomfortable or hurt, and that can create an air of negativity to the day. Try to avoid this by considering potential areas of con ict. For example, mothers might be hurt if their ex-husbandsÂ’ new girlfriends are asked to be in a group family photo. Instead, select separate times to have everyone included. Remember to give parents and stepparents priority seating as well, and they each should be seated next to someone they love and someone with whom they can converse comfortably. You may think everyone can play nice, but itÂ’s best not to push the issue just to make a point at the wedding. Â Recognize that some families break the mold. Recently, a father made waves on the Internet when a video of him pulling the brideÂ’s stepfather up to assist in walking her down the aisle went viral. This was a wonderful image of families making it work despite their differences or the awkwardness that can result when brides or grooms have parents and stepparents in attendance. Although this scenario might not play out for all, nd ways to impart a special touch, especially if youÂ’re close to both your biological parents and your stepparents. For example, your biological father may walk you down the aisle, while your stepfather may enjoy the rst dance. Â Order owers and gifts for all. Purchase owers and wedding party gifts for all of the special people in your lives, including your stepfamily. Weddings can be complicated affairs when factoring in blended families. With patience and compassion, such families can enjoy a beautiful and happy day.Families come in all shapes and sizes. During special events Â— particularly those steeped in tradition, such as weddings Â— blended families may have to employ certain tactics to ensure the events go off without a hitch.
