Largo's rst female re chief, who has been with the department since 1997, was named to the top post in 2013 following the retirement of former Chief Mike Wallace. Starting April 1, she will begin her new position as deputy re chief in Ogden, Utah, which is just north of Salt Lake City and has a population of 86,700, "We have always dreamed of living in Utah, Colorado or even Idaho. It's just a way of life that we like and we want to do," Willis said. "It's a weird feeling," she added. "I get the opportunity to start over, my family gets the opportunity to start over. Although that sounds pretty exciting, it's pretty frightening." Willis served as a police officer in the Air Force from By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLargo Fire Rescue Chief Shelby Willis, who has been with the department since 1997, will resign her post effective March 9. She took over the position of chief in 2013 and has faced several challenges during her tenure. The Leader asked her about her time with the department and what the future of Largo looks like. Here's what she had to say.Q: Looking back at your time with Largo Fire Rescue, what are you most proud of? A: I am proud of many things the department has accomplished but two that really have made a large impact on the department is earning an ISO of 1 and partnering with Pinellas County regarding EMS funding and planning to manage call growth in the future. Fire chief set for next chapterWillis to resign post March 9; city to conduct search for replacementTaking one final look at the past and future By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO March might seem early for parents to start thinking about summer camps for their children. It's not, says Recreation, Parks and Arts Director Joan Byrne. "It's hard for parents to think about it in March, but it'll be here before you know it," she said. And, at the rate many of the camps ll up, she has two words of advice when it comes to Largo resident registration that starts March 3 and nonresident registration that begins March 17: "Don't hesitate." Byrne said more than 1,000 children attend the city's 60 fulland half-day camps for preschool, elementary, middle school and teenage children, and that, at any given week, about 700 kids are in camps, which kick off May 25. Eight different venues host the activities, but the camps at Highland Recreation Complex are especially popular, she said, so if parents don't act fast, they may miss out. In addition to the full-day camps, the city offers sports, dance, teen, golf, tennis, performance arts, specialty camps and preschool camps. Daily schedules include at least 60 minutes of physical activities and offer healthy snack options.

This year, the Phillies' home spring schedule features 18 games and is loaded with top-tier teams, including the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves for the annual St. Patrick's Day game. In addition to some new faces in the Philadelphia dugout, like slugging in elder Carlos Santana and manager Gabe Kapler, there are some noticeable changes at the ballpark.

Instead they were rejoicing, as the Suncoast Association of Chinese Americans celebrated Chinese New Year with an event that offered people an opportunity to sample traditional foods, watch colorful performances, such as dragon and lion dances, and try their hand at some traditional Chinese crafts and activities. The rst day of the lunar year, which of cially started Feb. 16, marked the beginning of the Year of the Dog, one of 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. See more photos on page 4A.

2A Largo Leader, March 1, 2018 Q: Is there a moment or person you can think of that makes you smile or cry? A: I remember a call I went on as a paramedic. I was with Mark Michael and was relativity new in the re department. It was Valentine's night. An elderly man called 911 because he could not wake up his wife. We found her on the oor in the living room of their home. She was covered with a blanket and he put a pillow under her head. We did a very quick assessment and realized she was deceased and had been so for some time. We contacted the appropriate legal entities and was busy doing the assessment when I looked up and saw the patient's husband looking down at us. I realized he did not know his wife had passed and he was waiting for us to tell him what was wrong with her. I took a breath and stood up and let him know his wife had passed. Mark and I then realized that he was now the person that needed our attention and assisted him in calling his son and making arrangements. I found out then what it meant to be a paramedic. I still tear up when I remember his face; he was so hopeful that she would be OK and we had to break the news to him that his love was gone. Q: Do you have any regrets? A: None. I have been so fortunate to have had this amazing career and been part of Largo Fire Rescue and the city of Largo. You always look back in hindsight and realize you could have done better at this or that. But I am proud of what this team has accomplished and am so blessed to have been a part of it. Q: As Largo’s rst female re chief, have you felt an additional burden to succeed? A: As a female, I did not feel an added burden to succeed. I am so fortunate that the city of Largo, Largo Fire Rescue and Pinellas County for that matter has the approach that if you can do the job, you are part of the team. I wanted to succeed on my own merits and not get credit for being a female. There were many times, however, that I was the only female in a room full of males. I am often initially overlooked as the leader or authority in the room; however, it has been my experience that once folks realized I was the re chief, there was never an issue. I always felt respected and part of the team. Q: What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced during your tenure? A: I believe I would have to say two challenges kept me up at night. The rst was ensuring I was leading the department in the right direction. As the re chief, you want to make the best decision possible for the personnel and the sake of the organization this is very challenging in today's environment. The other challenge that caused me worry and will cause the next re chief worry as well is meeting the demand for service. Service demands continue to increase every year with funding and resources falling well behind this curve. It is imperative that the leaders of the Fire and EMS services work together to determine creative ways to meet these demands. Q: What do you think the biggest challenge will be for the city in the near future? A: Funding will continue to be a challenge for the city. As the Legislature looks for ways to reduce taxes cities must determine how to continue to keep infrastructure maintained, provide the services that the citizens want and need and with declining revenue streams. Q: As the number of EMS calls continue to increase in Pinellas County, what can Largo and other local agencies do to keep up? A: We must partner to de ne a new level of service that meets the needs of the citizens yet uses our resources appropriately. Managing call volume through a variety of medical response opportunities must be the future focus. A onesize- ts-all approach to EMS can no longer be the norm. Many times, all that is needed is a re department response for assistance and ambulance transport is not needed. Other times, a patient may only need transport and the first responders are not needed. Finally, citizens at times just need someone to direct them to the appropriate level of care and 911 should not be the catch-all for those folks who need a medical concern addressed, but today the only option is emergency response from the re and ambulance service. Q: Do you believe the city’s public safety staf ng plan is enough to tackle the department’s overtime needs? If not, what do you think should be done? A: I think the public safety plan is a great start to address the overtime needs. The public safety plan was a five-year plan that we are now halfway through Year 3. The personnel and resource needs will need to continue to be addressed on an annual basis to ensure the success of the department. Q: Which job is more dif cult: being a re chief, wife or mother? A: Wife for sure! If he would just listen ... just kidding. I think each role is always rewarding and very dif cult at times. The dif culty lies when trying to balance all three at the same time. Many times, my family had to take a backseat to the responsibilities of the re chief position. Although they were very understanding, there were times when I had to disappoint my family, which was the hard part of being a re chief. There were times when I had to ask my team to take care of an issue when my family needed me. I am so fortunate to have an amazing family who supported my career and a team at the city of Largo that supports family life.

Largo 3A Leader, March 1, 20181985-89, joining at the age of 17. She returned to Florida in the hopes of continuing her career as a police of cer, but found the opportunities lacking and decided to go back to school to become a paramedic, earning a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of South Florida. She later became a volunteer at the Redington Beach Fire Department before Largo Fire Rescue hired her as a paramedic/ firefighter in 1997. By 2006, she was named division chief of emergency medical services and quickly rose up the ranks to chief. Willis, who is married and has a 10-year-old son, has also earned a master's degree in safety-security and emergency management and completed the Executive Fire Officer Program with a perfect score. She is one of less than 4,000 graduates nationwide, and only the third executive fire officer in the history of the Largo department to achieve the milestone.Finding a new chiefIn a recent email to fire department personnel, City Manager Henry Schubert said his next step will be hiring an executive search firm to find the "best possible candidates." "I will be looking for a new Chief who will continue the legacy of excellence for Largo Fire Rescue," Schubert wrote. "I want a Chief who is innovative, creative, a good strategic thinker, someone who will have a productive working relationship with the union and be respectful of our outstanding workforce. I want someone who can collaborate with Pinellas County Administration and the other chiefs in the county as we continue to seek solutions to the increasing EMS call volume. I want a Chief who will effectively function as a member of the City's Executive Leadership Team and support the City's mission, vision, and values." In the interim, Schubert said Deputy Chief Joseph Pennino, who is expected to apply for the position, will serve as the acting chief.

"With the backstop behind home plate, we did away with the old pole structure and put in the new netting, which makes a huge difference in the sightlines for the fans that sit there. And then there's additional netting over the top of the dugouts, too, and those are simply a safety initiative for fans that sit there. It's been a long time coming." Timberlake, who also serves as the general manager of the Clearwater Threshers, the Phillies' Class-A club, said the safety initiatives have been mandated by Major League Baseball and include security screenings for every park entrant, including team employees and of cials. "The security has continued to step up a little bit," he said, noting full-sized baseball bats, a popular item for autograph seekers, are not allowed inside the stadium any more. "All of our full-time and parttime employees actually go through Magnetometers now. People like myself have to go through them when I arrive in the morning. It's just part of the enhanced security." While safety and security are paramount to professional organizations, comfort and fun are close behind in terms of importance, and Phillies "phanatics" will nd some changes in those areas of Spectrum Stadium this year, as well. In addition to a complete renovation of the suites, there's a pair of new beer stands featuring local craft beer selections as well as two new food items, cheesesteak nachos and barbecue nachos. "We're pretty excited about some of the newer things we have to offer this spring," Timberlake said. Touring the ballpark on a balmy late-February afternoon, it was clear that despite changes that take place both on and off the eld every year, nothing can diminish the draw of spring baseball in the Sunshine State. As kids (and adults) lined the left eld wall pleading for players to autograph their hats, shirts and balls (but no bats), the Phillie Phantatic whizzed around the eld on his ATV as Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos prepared to throw out the rst pitch. "Since 1947, the Phillies have called Clearwater home for spring training, and spring training in Clearwater is always special," Cretekos said before tossing a perfect strike. One longtime Phillies supporter was quick to agree with the mayor. "I've been doing this for almost 30 years with the same group of people and a rotating group of new faces," Pat O'Hara, CEO of Tampa company Maintenex, said from the Diamond Dugout section. "I love bringing everyone to watch the guys play and seeing the little ones get excited about baseball. That's what spring training is all about."

Visit for more photos from the opener.Among the changes this year is an enhanced focus on science at the nature camps at McGough Nature Park. "For people who are interested in the STEM program, this is a great camp for kids to learn about science and nature in a really fun way," Byrne said. Other new camps this year include magic, jewelry-making, play with clay, SAT prep study skills, iPad art, rec game Olympics and tumbling. Another change of interest for adults is a new payment option. Parents can now set up autopay with a debit or credit card and camp fees will be charged two weeks before the registered week. And for those who need nancial assistance, the city is again offering scholarships for some full-day and theater camps. The scholarships for the fullday camps are funded by the Juvenile Welfare Board, Rotary Club of Largo and the Juanita Johnson Scholarship Fund, while the theatre scholarships are made possible by the Suncoast Performing Arts Foundation. All are awarded on first-come, firstserve basis to those who qualify. Application forms can be found at Highland or Southwest recreation complexes.

6A County Leader, March 1, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER More people are calling 911 and the number of ambulance transports in Pinellas is steadily rising. The increase in call volume coming in to the regional 911 center is exceeding the county's population growth, according to James Fogarty, director of Safety and Emergency Services. Fogarty delivered the news to Pinellas County commissioners during a Feb. 15 work session. The regional 911 center processes about 1.2 million calls each year. Telecommunicators are responsible for dispatching fire and EMS personnel. They handle calls for the sheriff's office and contracted cities. In fiscal year 2016-2017, an average of 633 EMS calls a day came in resulting in 231,000 EMS responses. Of that number, 184,000 were transported to a medical facility about 510 people a day, Fogarty said. And the numbers went up January-April with about 600 people transported a day. Fogarty and staff aren't sure what is driving the increase. Some is social with people using 911 as a safety net. Tourism could be another cause; however, Fogarty said there is no proof that the hike is due to the influx of tourists, although he admits it would be a logical assumption with 20 million tourists coming into the area during the season. Projections show those numbers could grow to 34 million in the near future. Fogarty said there is capacity in the system to handle some increase. The question is whether it will be enough. "We're looking at that," he said. Work is ongoing to manage the growth in calls and transports. The biggest factor is analyzing why people call. Some are acute emergencies a heart attack or someone hit by a car. However, some calls could be prevented and staff is working on that. County staff and municipal partners are targeting fall prevention, which accounted for about 15 percent of calls in 20162017 the second largest number. The goal is to reduce the number of fall calls to 10 percent a year. The No. 1 reason people call is because they're sick. Currently, fall prevention campaigns are taking place in South Pasadena, Largo and Pinellas Park that includes outreach to locations with high risk, which typically are facilities that house a high number of elderly patients. He said simple xes could help, such as modifying light fixtures so they come on at night when someone enters a room. Fogarty also told commissioners about the Sleep Safe campaign aimed at preventing infant death. He said on average one infant dies each month in Pinellas due primarily to the way they are sleeping. The campaign aims to change long-held beliefs about how to put a baby to sleep. Priority dispatch continues to be used with telecommunicators making a determination about the best response for each call. Fogarty said some calls require them to "send the cavalry," while others can be routed to a skilled nurse. He said the skilled nursing protocol had been in the testing phase for the past couple of years and plans are in the works to expand it. He said priority dispatch continues to be "applied cautiously." He also said basic life support had been added to the system that used to include only advanced life support. Basic life support units are sent out for calls such as broken bones and transports between facilities. Fogarty talked about a partnership with St. Pete College on an education program for new hires at the 911 center, which has a 22-23 percent turnover in staff. He said the program provides training that allows graduates to become eligible to take an exam for certi cation from the state. He said changes in what third party providers, such as insurance companies, were willing to pay for transport to the hospital also was a factor these days. There's a movement encouraging some to use Uber instead of an ambulance for non-emergencies. Ambulance service continues to be a revenue maker with $56 million collected in FY 2017 with 191,000 claims billed, compared to $50 million and 172,000 claims the year before. Fogarty encourages residents to sign up for Sunstar Paramedics FirstCare membership saving program. It is not an insurance plan, but works with your insurance plan to cover 100 percent of expenses associated with deductibles and copayments. It also will pay 50 percent of costs for any trips denied for noncovered charges by the insurance plan. Uninsured members will receive a 20 percent discount on ambulance transport services. The cost is $66 for a single membership and $101 for a family. The average cost of an emergency ambulance transport is $761. For more information, visit or call 727-5822008. Fogarty said his department would continue to work with its 18 partners using a "data-driven approach" to improve services and relationships. He said response times still were being met with responders arriving on site within 7.5 minutes or less 90 percent of the time. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at of EMS calls increasingIncrease in 911 calls outpaces county's population growth By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Although it didn't make a direct hit, Hurricane Irma was a big deal in Pinellas County last year. As part of the budget preparation process for fiscal year 2019, county departments are making presentations that focus on things done in the previous year and plans for the future. Most included the effect of Hurricane Irma in their reports delivered during work sessions on Feb. 13 and 15. Emergency Management Director Sally Bishop had the most news to report, after all her department is responsible for planning for hurricanes and other hazards, as well as overseeing disaster response and recovery. Hurricane Irma was only the third time in 32 years that the county has orchestrated a largescale evacuation, Bishop told commissioners Feb. 15. Her department managed the largest and longest power outage in at least 32 years with 80 percent of the population without electricity at one point. It was the first full activation of the new Public Safety Campus and the longest activation of the Emergency Operations Center in more than 13 years. Irma was a big deal and tested the plans and training that had been ongoing for years. And it was difficult for first responders, according to James Fogarty, director of Safety and Emergency Services, who talked about implementing "condition six" during the height of the storm when crews were instructed not to respond to emergencies. "We've never before had to say, we can't get there," he said. For 12 hours, no medical help was available. Instead, calls were routed to physicians to help talk people through emergencies. Fogarty gave an example of a mother who called because her child was having a breathing problem. The doctor talked to the mother about ways to help using "old school medicine." As soon as there was a break in the storm, St. Petersburg Fire Rescue made a "dramatic rescue," he said. Hurricane Irma was the largest evacuation since Hurricane Elena in 1985. Bishop said 113,000 residents used emergency shelters that year compared to only 23,000 when Irma passed by. She's not sure why the numbers were lower, but speculated it might be that more people are prepared to shelter in their homes or that due to Hurricane Harvey, which preceded Irma, more people took the threat seriously and left the area. Doug Brightwell, director of Animal Services, told commissioners that Hurricane Irma had shown his department needed to make some changes. When evacuations began, plans had called for three pet-friendly shelters, but that wasn't enough so a fourth was added. County officials wanted to make sure adequate space was available for pets because they know many people won't leave home unless they know their pets are safe. He said 2,013 animals had been housed in shelters. In the future, plans call for using high schools instead of middle schools because they have more space and could house more animals. Also, staff learned that locker rooms aren't good areas for dogs. The county needs more shelter space. Currently there is a de cit of 412 spaces, Bishop said. And there is a need for more storage space to keep emergency supplies and resources, such as generators, cots and medical supplies (walkers and wheelchairs) for special needs shelters. "We're imposing greatly on the school board warehouse," she said, adding that many of the county's facilities where supplies could be stored are too old "to hold up." The county needs about 25,000 square feet of space. Staff is looking at the new Lealman Community Center as a possible space to store supplies as well as create additional shelter space. Bill Berger, director of the Of ce of Management and Budget, updated commissioners on the cost hurricane season and its effect on the FY 2017 and 2018 budgets, as well as the reserve fund. Hermine cost $2.3 million and Irma $27.4 million. Berger expects FEMA to reimburse about $24 million of the costs, but it will take months, maybe years.

Pinellas Park police charged Brandon Paul Roman with attempted felony murder, aggravated assault with a firearm, two counts of armed burglary, violation of probation (grand theft motor vehicle) and delinquent in possession of a rearm. Police say Roman was in the area of 62nd Street and 106th Avenue North about 1:15 a.m. Feb. 18 looking for vehicles to burglarize when he found and stole a handgun from an unlocked vehicle. Roman continued along 106th Avenue where Alexander Weaver, 28, saw at least three males, possibly juveniles, breaking into his vehicle parked at his home. Weaver confronted Roman and began chasing him down the street to the 10600 block of Oakhaven Drive where Roman pulled out the stolen rearm and shot Weaver in the arm. Weaver was treated at a local hospital for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. Pinellas Park police detectives are continuing to investigate and are looking to identify and possibly charge others that assisted Roman with the burglaries. The stolen rearm has not yet been recovered.Motorcyclist injured in Oldsmar crashOLDSMAR A 37-year-old Dunedin man suffered serious injuries when he lost control of his motorcycle about 2:39 a.m. Feb. 22 in the southbound lane of Bayside Boulevard in Oldsmar. According to deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team, Justin Michael Kaune was operating a 2011 Suzuki motorcycle traveling south on Bayside Boulevard at a high rate of speed when the motorcycle struck a raised cement median, just north of Shef eld Court. Kaune then lost control of the motorcycle and was ejected. Deputies say he was not wearing a helmet. He was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. Deputies say speed and impairment appear to be contributing factors.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersDUNEDIN Undercover detectives arrested 26 people on 57 charges in less than three days all part of a sting to catch unlicensed contractors doing business in the city of Dunedin. At a press conference Feb. 19, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri talked about a "huge problem" in the county with unlicensed contractors "engaging in work inappropriately" and "ripping people off." "It shows the ineffectiveness of enforcement over the last several years, because this operation was too easy. It was like shooting sh in a barrel," he said. The sheriff's of ce worked with the city of Dunedin, which provided a house, to conduct Operation Drop the Hammer on Feb. 17-18 and a "couple hours" the morning of Feb. 19. Gualtieri said it was easy to get the people to show up after detectives called ads found in a variety of publications, and it was easy to get them to offer to do work as an unlicensed contractor. He blames the problem on the lack of enforcement by the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board, which came under re last year for a number of problems uncovered by a series of newspaper articles as well as two independent investigations. The sheriff's office took over enforcement of unlicensed contractors about six months ago, Gualtieri said. During the sting, 27 arrests were made of unlicensed contractors, a misdemeanor, and 20 arrests were made of persons who had no worker's compensation insurance, which is a felony. Among those arrested was Anthony Gianunzio, 26, of Largo, who was working with his girlfriend, an employee at Home Depot on U.S. 19. Gualtieri said the girlfriend was referring customers to Gianunzio, an unlicensed contractor. The sheriff said not only was Gianunzio doing work as an unlicensed contractor, he was also stealing from people. Gualtieri said in early February, he took $19,000 in jewelry and other personal belongings from a woman in Dunedin while working on her house.Sheriff ‘drops the hammer’ on unlicensed contractors Pet Boutique of Largo13910 Walsingham Road, Largo 727-595-9700021518 FREE Bag of LEAN TREATS with $20 or more PurchaseMust present original coupon PET FOOD DELIVERY AVAILABLE MONDAY SAVE 5% ON ALL SCIENCE/HILLS DIETS We carry: Natural Balance, Solid Gold, Blue Buffalo, California Natural, Wellness, Honest Kitchen, Science Diet and much more Can't nd your favorite food?

The snook are looking to bulk up after an extremely cold January and at the right time and tide have fed with recklessness. Target shorelines close to the many small creek mouths that can found from Pinellas Point all the way north past the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Fish the mouth of the creeks during the higher tides. Trout are still holding strong around spoil islands in northern part of the country as well as rock jetties. This week's stronger tides should have the trout feeding. Target the incoming tide with freelined live baits including shrimp, whitebait and /or small pin sh. Tripletail are showing up in our area. Scan crab trap floats both inshore and along the beach to nd them. Live shrimp or a small whitebait under a oat usually will draw a strike. Sheepshead shing is improving as schools of larger sized sh group up for their spawn. Fish pass bridges and jetties when targeting the bigger fish. Use fresh pieces of shrimp shed on either a jig head or a small hook with a split shot for weight. Also, now is a good time to have a few pompano jigs on hand, especially when shing in or near the passes. Look for the pompano to stage up and feed on the strong part of the tide. First thing in the morning or early evening is the best time to trick these tasty speedsters. Keep your eyes open for a chance at spotting a school of breeder sized black drum. These giants will often hang out over deep grass ats and can sometimes be seen tailing in the shallows usually early in the morning. Pinellas point is a good area look as well as the ats around the Dunedin causeway. Cast gulp shrimp on a stout jig head into the school and hang on.Warm spell brings variety of fish Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein The Great Outdoors Photo courtesy of NOEL CURRANChris Curran, 90, caught this black drum Feb. 20 off the dock at Vista Bay Drive condos in Indian Shores. The sh was estimated to be 14 pounds. Curran's daughter, Noel, says her father spends hours shing daily and has caught many sh from the pier for nearly 25 years, but believes this drum is his largest ever. Curran used a new rod and live shrimp for bait.Catch of a lifetime Edward A. LAZZERIEdward A. Lazzeri, 89, of Largo, Florida, passed away on Sunday, February 18, 2018.

10A Viewpoints Leader, March 1, 2018 LETTERS Stop the madnessI, like many other Americans, are sick and tired of our politicians, including the president, telling us after mass shootings, including the latest at Parkland in south Florida, that now is too soon to talk about solutions to gun problems in our country. How many times have we heard it in the last few years? We need help, immediately. There were plenty of disturbing signs about the recent shooter in Parkland that were either ignored or not followed through. If we had a National Gun Register, on the Internet, naming everyone who possesses or has purchased a gun, for all the public to see, it would call attention to your neighbors, no different than the public information about pedophiles who live near you. That law, Sex Offender Registration and Noti cation, after challenges, has twice been upheld by SCOTUS. We need a complete revision or overturn of the The Firearm Owners' Protection Act of 1986 that many states ignore anyway. Along with more stringent background checks, and a much longer waiting period, purchasing weapons should be limited to anyone 21 years or older. Additionally, we need a ban on all contributions to our elected of cials from the National Ri e Association that has a stronghold on them. They are being bought and it is disgusting. John Tischner DunedinThe greatest good for the wholeEditor: The harm we face today in terms of a nation and society with guns is not how or who they are sold to, but more importantly, how they are used. The gun assailant wants to maximize carnage and impact in a non-hostile, centralized or con ned environment, with little or no apparent resistance, almost parallel in nature to the hijacked jet airliners used on 9/11. While there is no "one-size- ts-all" solution to the dilemma we currently face, a consideration that warrants further investigation is the use of a "sleeping gas" or immobilization effort that could be released via new/ existing ventilation systems, and, could be installed or retro tted cost effectively. While this approach will not address all applications or use needs, it will offer a more controlled response, fewer total fatalities, higher levels of safety, quicker response to the immediate need, and, a safer means for law enforcement efforts on all fronts to "move-in" to make the necessary arrests. Will there be individuals who will die or perish because of their own health conditions, age, etc., most assuredly. Will there be some deaths because of system mis res or delay in the release of the gases, of course there will be. Can the perpetrator acquire a gas mask? Yes, but this will give us yet another level of advance warning of who a likely candidate for committing a crime of this nature might be and lead to better advance planning and control. What about stadiums for professional and college events. If they are outside, aeriated facilities, no it won't, but it will assist and control in a facility of a domed nature. "The Greatest Good for The Greatest Number" quote in its shortest form, is an approach best de ned by Jeremy Bentham as "A goal put forth for governments, that they should be judged by the results of their policies, and speci cally, whether those policies bene t the majority." Lorian J. Tripp LargoVote carefullyEditor: In today's Beach Beacon, I read the letters to the editor as I always do. I found it interesting. A candidate for election as a commissioner was commenting on a letter published the previous week from a citizen. Now I do not know either of these people up close and personal, but I have seen them express their views and feelings at meetings. The contrast is revealing. In 1939, I was 7 years old and I heard neighbors speaking a word I didn't know. The word was (purge). So, I asked what it meant and they explained it to me that it basically meant to get rid of. And the context in which it was being used had something to do with a man in a faraway country who felt it was his mission in life to purge the world of all Jewish people. It had to be further explained to me that this meant killing them all. I was incredulous. I simply could not understand. Now I am not Jewish, but one of my close little friends was, his name was George Lewinger. I was unable to comprehend why anyone would want to kill George and his family. Well, that was a long time ago but I still can't understand hate, prejudice, intolerance and all the masquerading terms that are used to hide them. Such words as clean house, opposing views, too permissive, when they are intended to sti e anyone who is different. To me the most heinous crime is committed when one person forces his or her will upon another. In this country, all people are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are blessed; vote carefully! Rees E. Noren Madeira Beach Belleair candidate discusses issuesEditor: My name is Spencer Connerat, and I'm running to be mayor of Belleair. The reason that I write to you today is to introduce myself, as a political candidate, and as a leader. In a 2018 interview, Heisman Trophy winner and, now, professional baseball player Tim Tebow stated, "A leader is someone people will follow." During the qualifying period, in December, I met with many residents to hear their concerns and to propose a new kind of leadership for our town. Many were frustrated with the failure of the town to keep its promises regarding road improvements. The worst part of this predicament is that we are now about $9 million in debt, with very little to show for it. With a degree in economics from the University of Virginia plus over 20 years of experience in nancial services, I bring a unique set of skills to address these issues. An example of how I would lead comes from my public statement, in 2016, that the town should refrain from selling the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club. We owned a public golf course, had a great staff, and made about $250,000 per year in cash. Now, we have no ownership. We already have a private club which needs no further competition, especially from within the town limits. Although the current owner may be benevolent, let's see what happens with a few ownership changes down the road. My leadership would have fought to preserve the status quo, where we made money and kept control of the property. Here are some of my current ideas for leadership: We must address our water issues immediately. We are losing control of our water supply; good water is one of the reasons why the town was founded. This is likely the most critical issue we face. It has been ignored since I spoke about it, in 2016. We must oppose any increase in the millage rate for property tax. Belleair residents are taxed enough already. We must endorse the creation of written goals for our town. A business (or town) cannot reach its destination if it doesn't know where it is going. We must correspond with any constituent who takes the time to write a letter. Some of our elected leaders forget who put them in of ce. A mayor reports to the people; they don't report to him. In sum, Belleair is at a pivotal point in history, after years of dealing with millions of dollars of debt, poor water pressure and quality, promises of road repairs which are routinely postponed, and "demolition by neglect" of the historic Belleview Biltmore Resort and Spa. During a visit to the governor's conference room in Madison, Wisconsin, I noticed a quote on the ceiling, which read, "the will of the people is the law of the land." I heartily encourage all Belleair electors to exercise their will on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, by voting for a new kind of leader, one with a bright, creative, energetic, positive, and results-driven vision of our town's future.Spencer ConneratBelleair The meanest man I've ever known (I'll call him Savage) was the master-at-arms of my ship many years ago. One of his duties at 6 a.m. each day was to wake up the crew. He did this by sounding a bosun's pipe over the ship's loudspeakers, and then shouting it was time to get up. Savage could have quit at that point. Instead, he went from one compartment to the other, cursing and shouting insults at us. His favorite trick was to physically shake any bunk in which a retread was sleeping. This was during the Korean War, when many World War II sailors had been called back to duty. We called these men retreads. We never knew why Savage especially hated them. He hated almost everyone. And we returned the favor. He is rotting in hell now. I sometimes think of him when I peacefully roll out of bed at 10 or 11 in the morning, of my own volition. I think "Savage, go kiss a dead ape!" That is my lifelong revengeful attitude to Savage or anyone who takes pleasure in waking up a sleeper. Songwriter Irving Berlin captured the feelings of countless service men and women in his 1942 Broadway musical, "This Is the Army." He wrote "Someday I'm going to murder the bugler. Someday they're going to find him dead. I'll amputate his reveille and stamp upon it heavily, and spend the rest of my life in bed!" I hear a lot about the agony of sleeplessness, which can be a major problem. But where are the suggestions for the pain of getting up each day? The answers are on Google. Almost everything is on Google. My cat Ellie is one of my solutions. After I've snored half my day away she silently sidles up to my cheek or ear and sniffs. Then she climbs all over my carcass, as if to make sure I haven't died during the night. I've trained her not to stand on my chest and its quintuple-bypass history, or on my bladder zone, which by that time of the morning is screaming "CONDITION RED! PREPARE TO FIRE!" During our November-to-May New England winters my second morning stop (after the loo) is my condo unit's thermostat. I goose it up to the "Icicle-melting-zone area" and then dive back into bed to await a civilized temperature. While there I often read a page or two of my "Daily Stoic" book. Lately I've also been performing sets of leg exercises dictated by local rehab therapists who are helping me remain mobile. Coffee and music taken separately or together can be wonderful ways to shake off slumber. I know people who are uncertain of their own names, or anything else, until they have ingested a cup of coffee each morning. Automatic coffee-makers start the day for thousands of heavy sleepers around the globe. Same way with iPod devices and other pre-set music sources that can ease us into reality.If you had to make a choice, what would your favorite wakeup music be? Classical? Rock? Rap? Hymns? Golden oldies? Sousa marches? I think I'd choose college fight songs, full of sure-to-win energy and optimism. If I woke up each day to the football-music of Ohio State, Columbia and Notre Dame plus the University of Maine's stein song, I might be transformed into a dynamo, rather than the snoozer I often am.As some of you may already know, one of the worst ways to wake up each day is with a hangover. I'm an expert on that. I spent my earlier years as a practicing, dues-paying drunk. But 52 years ago this week I turned in my membership card. Waking up sober every day since then has been as close to heaven as I'm going to get. Many Hollywood screenwriters would be lost without wakeup calls not for themselves but as a solution to "How in God's name will I start my next movie script?" A simple and overused answer: a 6 a.m. phone call to the main character. If you're a movie buff, you may agree with me. Or not. Final word, from French poet-philosopher Paul Valery: "The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up." Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@' feelings on TrumpOXON HILL, Md. One year ago, when the Conservative Political Action Conference convened for its annual gathering, participants were positive about Donald Trump's 2016 election victory, gleeful that Hillary Clinton did not win, but unsure about what the future would bring. So, they danced around their new leader's ascent gingerly. (There was also the issue of CPAC's failure to endorse Trump as wholeheartedly as his base. In 2016, Trump ended up cancelling his planned speech at CPAC under threat of a walkout, and he came in third in CPAC's presidential straw poll.) Matt Schlapp, whose American Conservative Union puts on the event, noticed the change this year from 2017. "Last year I think people were a little bit still little in a state of shock. You know, did this really happen?" Schlapp told the Review Journal. "This year I think there's more of a feeling of, it's working. For conservatives, the agenda that the president put out there is just working so well." Trump was aware of the group's misgivings. At the start of his 75-minute address Friday, he said, "Remember when I rst started running? Because I wasn't a politician, fortunately. But do you remember I started running and people would say, Are you sure he's a conservative?' I think now we've proved that I'm a conservative, right?" A year ago, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus sat with Chief Strategist Steve Bannon at a session designed to defuse stories about a feud between the two. Bannon famously announced that the Trump administration was committed to "the deconstruction of the administrative state." Trump later red both aides. The important thing is "the president is still deconstructing the administrative state," David Bossie, longtime Trump adviser and head of the conservative group Citizens United, asserted after Trump's CPAC address. John Cox, a businessman who is running for California governor as a Republican, said he didn't think that Trump, a former Democrat whose positions often varied from GOP doctrine, was truly conservative. "I didn't vote for him," said Cox, who has attended CPAC conferences for years. Would he vote for Trump in 2020? "Absolutely, with bells on," Cox answered, who is thrilled with Trump's judicial picks and the effective U.S. assault on ISIS. Trump still grates on Cox, who acknowledged that for all the policy pluses, "the trouble is the personality." Cox described Trump as the opposite of President Barack Obama, who is highly likable as a human being, but whose policies offended Cox. As a candidate in a very blue state (with no Republicans in statewide of ce), Cox is aware of the dif culties Trump could present for his campaign. And it's not just because of Trump. Cox also blames the media for "unrelentingly negative" coverage. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson thinks Trump's tenure in the White House will make it impossible for a Republican to win statewide in another blue state, New Mexico. "If you're running," he explained, "you'd be expected to defend him." As for Nevada's governor's race, Johnson predicted a Democratic win then posited that his 2016 election loss suggests he is no expert. It says something about CPAC that Johnson met well-wishers and sel e-seekers wherever he walked at the conference even though he ran against Trump as a Libertarian candidate for president in 2016. While most attendees seemed happy to embrace Trump as a fellow conservative, Johnson was not so sure. Yes, he said, Trump is conservative "in some ways. He reduced taxes but he didn't reduce spending and I think that's part of the conservative equation." Johnson presented a view on Trump that runs contrary to what others say. He thinks Trump doesn't rate as a conservative because he does not communicate well. "I don't know his thought process," said Johnson. "Part of the art of governing is to communicate why you do things. I think he's done a really poor job of that." As an example, Johnson said, he doesn't understand Trump on Afghanistan. "What's your information on Afghanistan that you're doubling down on Afghanistan, instead of getting out, which is what you said during the campaign?" (Presidents can change their mind, Johnson stressed, he just wants to know what factors led to the change.) Other CPAC attendees con ded their misgivings on an off-the-record basis, but they wanted to stay on the Trump train. Schlapp, whose wife, Mercedes, a high-pro le defender of conservative causes in her own right, joined the White House communications team in September, said, "The room itself with the president, we've never had that many people in that room. And he had a lot of fun in the speech. He connects with these people." Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter.

Community 11A Leader, March 1, 2018 Photo courtesy of SARAH SVABEK The Largo High School Class of 1961 recently showed that their school spirit is as strong as ever by donating a bench to the school's Packer Walk. Several members of the class donated to fund the $2,160 project in an effort to represent their class's spirit then and now. Principal Brad Finkbiner, center, shows off the bench with some of the class's members, including, seated from left, Sarah Svabek, Lynn Fox, Peggy Chiarelli; and back row from left, Pete Love, David Bassett, Louie Svabek and Richard Stephens. The class matches a similar bench donated by the Class of 1964, and alumni are hoping other classes will continue the trend.LHS alumni show school spirit Schools NotebookMorgan Fitzgerald students compete in D.C. Three seventh-grade students from Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School, 118th Ave. N., Largo, recently traveled to Washington, D.C. to compete in an engineering contest called Future City. The three created a two-level model of the city for a Future City Regionals competition, and described how the city and its systems worked to judges. They made school history by winning the Future City Regionals competition. The students' model city named Luminica has 25 parks and an easy to use, age-friendly transit system. Luminica derives from the words light and age. Future City is an engineering competition that poses a question to sixth, seventh and eighth-graders: how can you make the world a better place? The students then imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solution to a city-wide sustainability issue.

Entertainment 3B Leader, March 1, 2018show and a roster of fun and hook-laden original songs. According to the band’s of cial website, Billings and Tom King were original members of Stranger and were there through it all. Billings’ vocal range and ability were equally matched by his magnetic personality and his ability to make everyone in the audience feel like a friend. During the band’s 16-year run, Stranger released several independent CDs in addition to the initial Epic release, solidifying their catalog of “Florida music,” and spawning hits such as “Swamp Woman,” “Okeechobee Whiskey,” “3D,” “Hit and Run,” “Alligator Joe” and “Wrong Side of the Tracks.” Following the breakup of Stranger, Billings formed Damn the Torpedoes in 1996 followed by the founding of the Greg Billings Band in 2003. Current band members include Billings on lead vocals, Tom King on bass guitar, George Harris on guitar and vocals, Rob Stoney on keyboards and vocals, Mark Busto on drums and vocals and Kyle Ashley on guitar. Another one of the Tampa Bay area’s best-known bands will be performing Sunday. The Black Honkeys will be serving up a shot of soul, R&B and funk for this year’s festival. The Black Honkeys rst hit the stage in 2000. Phil Esposito – a diehard fan of the old Motown and R&B sound of the ’60s and ’70s – and then guitarist Joe Sanders – who was into the J. Geils Band, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones – combined their musical interests and launched the project that would become The Black Honkeys. The band started rehearsing in September and played their rst show at Club More in Clearwater on New Year’s Eve. The eight-piece band is led by vocalist Esposito – better known as “Brother Phil.” The supporting cast includes Nicole “Ms. Groovalicious” Coley eld Davids on vocals, Wil “The Thrill” Harris on bass and vocals, Greg Czink on guitar and vocals, John Dash Dixon on keyboards, Stephen Tanner on drums, Terry Clark on trumpet and vocals and Scott Meyers on trombone and vocals. Following is the festival performance schedule: Saturday, March 3  Nostaljah – 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Sarasota Steel Pan Band – 1:30 to 3 p.m.  RJ Howson –3:30 to 5 p.m.  Kettle of Fish – 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 4  Reverend Barry & The Funk – 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio –1:30 to 3 p.m.  The Black Honkeys – 3:30 to 5 p.m.  The Greg Billings Band – 5:30 to 7 p.m. Lee Clark Zumpe is TBN entertainment editor.

The event is free and open to the public. Attendees can expect to find unique, handcrafted treasures such as copper yard and garden art, natural stone jewelry, porcelain pottery, stained glass and mosaic tables as well as plenty of other affordable, creative creations. More than 50 crafters will be on hand for this two-day event. The fun and free outdoor craft festival offers a chance for residents and visitors to peruse and shop for practical and whimsical works of quality crafts in the charming setting of Palm Harbor. The craft festival is pet-friendly for leashed animals, and includes a full greenmarket of live plants, handmade soaps, delicious edibles and more. Each artisan is on site during the entire festival, allowing patrons to meet with them and to discover the techniques and inspirations behind each piece. Howard Alan Events is known for producing some of the nation’s most exciting high-end juried craft shows in many of Florida’s vibrant downtown areas and popular tourist destinations. ACE is behind popular events such as the Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival in Fort Lauderdale and the Siesta Fiesta Craft Festival in Sarasota. In Pinellas, Howard Alan Events hosts the Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival and the St. Pete Beach Corey Area Craft Festival. Among this year’s participants at the Palm Harbor Craft Festival are Gissell and William Barbour. According to their website, their company, Ear Art Inc., uses only the finest materials, including Austrian and Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, with .925 sterling silver or 14 karat goldlled beads and 14 karat goldlled jewelry wire. “We put a great deal of pride in every item that we create,” the Barbours say on the website. “Our family is the original inventor of wire-crafted earpins and earcuffs and has been making jewelry for the past 25 years.” Also taking part in the festival will be Chris and Nancy Adamo. Like many of Florida’s seasonal residents, Chris splits his time between his home in Cape Cod and his winter escape in Sarasota. Together with his wife Nancy, Chris creates and sells unique handcrafted jewelry. But the Adamos idea of running a business didn’t include the “brick and mortar” model. Instead, they opted to sell their creations online and at local craft and artisan fairs. The result is inspired, distinctive jewelry crafted from the nest gemstones, crystals and silver. “We take our inspiration from the beautiful coastal areas where we live,” Chris says on his website, “but, also in the beauty and spirituality of the natural world around us.” Julie Woik, a children’s author from Sarasota, will be on hand. Woik will have the entire Lilly the Lash series available for purchase at the festival – and, she looks forward to meeting new fans and greeting existing fans. She will be personally signing all of the books as well. Her children’s book series teaches life lessons through character building messages while promoting literacy. Her newest book, the fourth in the series, “The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash: The Kacklin’ Kitchen,” tells a story and teaches the life lesson of respect through main character. Woik is a freelance writer and poet. Having worked with young children as a teacher’s aide, as well as in the field of psychiatry, she Photo courtesy of HOWARD ALAN EVENTSChris and Nancy Adamo create unique jewelry pieces. Their work will be on display March 3 and 4 at the Palm Harbor Craft Festival. See CRAFTS, page 8B Orpheum to present Senses FailTAMPA – Senses Fail recently hit the road for a headline tour that kicked off with a concert Feb. 27 in Santa Ana, California. The tour will bring the New Jersey based post-hardcore band to the Tampa Bay area for a show on Tuesday, March 6, at The Orpheum, 1915 E. Seventh Ave., Tampa. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Tickets range from $16 to $35. Visit www. Senses Fail is touring with support from Reggie and the Full Effect, Have Mercy and Household. The month-long run will wrap up March 31 in Las Vegas, Nevada – but not before bringing Senses Fail’s high-energy and passion-driven live show to fans across the country. “If There Is a Light, It Will Find You,” the band’s new album, was of cially released Feb. 16 through Pure Noise Records. The 12-song album has already spawned several singles, including “Double Cross,” “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket” and “New Jersey Makes, the World Takes.” “If There Is a Light, It Will Find You” was produced by Beau Burchell. The album marks the rst time singer and founding band member James “Buddy” Nielsen has fully written the entirety of a Senses Fail album. Nielsen experienced life-altering changes over the past two years that have contributed directly to the making of this record. The band has always been known for pushing boundaries lyrically and addressing topical issues from stage during a live show, but this time around you can feel the weight of uncontrollable stressors wearing down on Nielsen as he navigates the listener through his personal life, from song to song. Fans will notice a dramatic shift back to the band’s rock roots, honing the sound they realized on iconic records such as “Let It Enfold You” while also embracing the future of the band and personal experiences like both the loss and birth of a child. Underneath the album’s brighter, melody-driven exterior lurks a dark fascination with the concept of mortality – creating a juxtaposition of light and shadows that directly re ects on Senses Fail’s marked history. “Let It Enfold You,” Senses Fail’s debut album, was released in 2004. The band’s discography also includes the studio albums “Still Searching” (2006), “Life Is Not a Waiting Room” (2008), “The Fire” (2010), “Renacer” (2013) and “Pull the Thorns from Your Heart” (2015).

8B Entertainment Leader, March 1, 2018CLEARWATER – Legendary solo artist and guitarist Robin Trower will make his way to Pinellas for one show on Thursday, March 8, 8 pm., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $39.50. Call 727-7917400 or visit According to a biographical sketch provided by Robin Trower Publicity and Media Relations, Trower’s story began in the mid 1960s when he launched his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band The Paramounts. It wasn’t until 1967 that his talent was rst detected on any rock and roll radar screens. In that year, Trower joined Procol Harum shortly after they recorded their mega-hit “A Whiter Shade of Pale.” He completed ve albums with Procol Harum and toured with the band before breaking away for a solo career in 1971. “The big break for me was Gary Brooker getting me to join Procol,” Trower said of the experience. “That opened up the whole world. Without that I would never been able to go on and do what I’ve done.” Using bands such as Cream, Taste and the Jimi Hendrix Experience as models for his own power-trio, Trower joined forces with vocalist and bassist James Dewar and drummer Reg Isidore to form the Robin Trower Band in 1973. Trower’s atmospheric, effects-laden Stratocastering brought inevitable initial comparisons with Hendrix, but he quickly made his own mark. The band was soon outselling Procol Harum. “Bridge of Sighs,” released in 1974, reached the Top 10 in the United States. It went on to influence an entire generation of musicians. Its success also allowed Trower the freedom to explore his musical limits on subsequent albums. “In City Dreams” and “Caravan to Midnight” both demonstrated Trower’s maturing song writing abilities and strong connection to the blues. In the era that saw punk and new wave attempting to rede ne the musical landscape, Trower’s distinctive style of performance retained a sizeable live following in the United States. At the same time, radio was listening in another direction. In 1984, he split from long-time label Chrysalis Records. By the late 1980s, Trower’s recorded output became more sporadic. That set the stage for a brief reunion with his old bandmates in Procol Harum in the 1990s. Following the reunion, Trower reassessed the direction of his solo career. He chose a path that would allow him to ful l himself musically, putting less emphasis on sales numbers and revenue. That path led him to found V12 Records alongside manager Derek Sutton. In 1994, “20th Century Blues,” the rst V12 album, was released. Trower was backed by drummer Mayuyu and bass player/vocalist Livingston Brown. As the decade progressed, Trower decided to take on a share of the lead vocals. “I thought to myself there aren’t any blues artists that aren’t singers,” he explained. “I thought I’d give it a go. When you write songs, you’re always gonna get a twist put onto them by whoever sings them. When you sing it yourself it tends to come out how you heard it in your head when you wrote it.” With his stock still high among his fellow performers thanks to albums such as 1997’s “Someday Blues,” the late 1990s saw Trower hooking up with Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry for two albums, “Taxi” and “Mamouna.” The albums also led to a European tour. Since 2000, Trower has released a number of albums, including “Go My Way” (2000), “Living Out of Time” (2004), “Another Days Blues” (2005), “What Lies Beneath” (2009), “The Playful Heart” (2010), “Roots and Branches” (2013), “Something’s About to Change” (2015) and “Where You Are Going To” (2016). The legendary British blues-rock guitar statesman released “Time and Emotion,” his latest work, in 2017. The new album showcases Trower’s evocative note bends and signature tone along with his powerful lead vocals. There are plenty of tightly knitted bass lines and drum grooves supporting his gut-lifting sound to titillate the listener’s ear. It is an unadulterated combustion of rock, blues and soul – exactly what Strat-fans crave from this unique artist. Track highlights include “The Land of Plenty,” “I’m Gone,” “Bitten by the Snake,” “If You Believe in Me” and “You’re the One.” Trower powerLegendary British blues-rock guitarist Robin Trower takes the stage at Clearwater’s Capitol Theatre Robin T rower plays Capitol Theatre March 8.

Eighth Ave. C-112, Tampa. “Fresh off the Bloat” is Cho’s sickest stand-up comedy show to date. A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Cho doesn’t take anything for granted as she continues to tackle dif cult subjects with sensitivity and her razor-sharp insight with her takes on addiction, abuse, activism and Asianness. It’s all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics. An accomplished performer in all formats, Cho could be called the “Queen of all Media” having conquered the worlds of lm, television, books, music and theatre. She has ve Grammy Award nominations (two for the music albums “Cho Dependent” and “American Myth”) and one Emmy nod for her groundbreaking work on “30 Rock.” Never one to shy away from a dif cult or taboo topic, her socially aware brand of stand-up comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts. In 2017, Rolling Stone named her one of the 50 Best Stand-Up Comics calling her “the sort of funny, sex-positive feminist and LGBT activist younger comics continue to look up to.” Equally as important as her creative side is the causes she is passionate about. Cho is widely recognized for her charitable work with gay rights and anti-bullying campaigns. In every segment of her life, she is honest, forthright, passionate, uproarious and always entertaining.
