And they can thank Hurricane Irma for the delay. According to Aaron Corr, co-owner of Bradenton-based TreeUmph! Adventure Course, the plans for the Largo course, dubbed TreeUmph Blaze, have been put off until at least next year. "We are postponed with planning on TreeUmph Blaze in Largo due to the impact of Hurricane Irma, having had to rebuild and postpone opening in Brooksville," Corr wrote in an email to the Leader. "We will begin planning discussions again with the city in 2019." TreeUmph! was closing in on opening the course in Brooksville when Irma felled numerous trees and caused significant damage to the course. "They had a signi cant number of trees that came down on the site, so they had to rebuild the course," City Manager Henry Schubert said. "So, they finally opened that new course in Hernando County in December, but that put them way back timewise and nancially." Corr initially hoped construction on the Largo course would begin before the end of 2016, but concerns from neighboring residents delayed the plans for the park, which would feature several zip lines and 51 individual games and obstacles, such as wobbly bridges, hanging nets and bungee swings. Ticket prices for the course were expected to be between $20 and $40. When the course was under consideration by the City Commission, traffic, parking and its environmental impact were some of the neighboring Tree course still on groundBecause of Hurricane Irma, owner says plans for park will have to wait until 2019 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Many in Pinellas County struggle to find an affordable place to live. The availability of housing for minimum wage workers is not adequate to meet the needs. Kathryn Driver, executive director of Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County, talked about the problem at the Feb. 27 Pinellas County Commission meeting. She said in Pinellas, the Fair Market Rent for a two-bedroom apartment is $1,014. To afford rent and utilities on that apartment, a household must earn $3,380 a month to avoid paying more than 30 percent of their income on housing. If a person worked a 40-hour workweek, 52 weeks a year, it would take an hourly wage of $19.50 to afford a Fair Market Rent two-bedroom apartment in this county. Minimum wage in Florida is $8.10. In other words, a household would need to have 2.4 full-time minimum wage jobs just to pay rent and utilities. That's a problem for single parents, seniors and even two-person households. By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO City leaders have said that fostering community pride is one of the main strategic priorities in building Largo's reputation. Officials emphasized that point this past week using a bulldozer when they demolished a derelict house at 528 First Ave. NE that has been vacant for years. The effort was part of the city's campaign to address nuisance properties in neighborhoods. "It is a significant upgrade for the neighborhood," City Manager Henry Schubert said. The severely deteriorated house has been the subject of code enforcement Leaders say affordable housing still high priorityOfficials use bulldozer to tackle blightGiving lots to Habitat for Humanity for Ridgecrest area among the effortsDerelict house demolished to help area neighborhoodShooting leads to surge in interest in LPDÂ’s active-shooter training PREPARING for the WORSTPhotos by JIM LAYFIELDPang Thao and John Carr take down a shooter, portrayed by Largo Police Of cer Vu Tran, on March 3 during an active-shooter training course at the Largo Police Department. Tran said interest in the free course has increased since the school shooting in Parkland. Fred Belzel and Carol Shaffer secure a door to keep an active shooter from entering. By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Crime Prevention Of cer Vu Tran used to nd it dif cult to persuade schools, churches or businesses to spare three hours to undergo the free active-shooter training offered by Largo Police Department. Unfortunately, mass shootings like the one that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland last month are making his job easier. "Before, I would kind of have to go out and promote them," Tran said. In the wake of the Parkland shooting, however, he said the department has about 10 classes lined up for the training, which is called ALICE Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. The course, which was developed in 2001 as a response to the increase in school-related shootings, teaches proactive survival strategies for active-shooter incidents. Tran said more Largo businesses, such as Pinch-aPenny and Tech Data, have inquired about the program, but, despite the surge in shootings and it being a free course, it's still difficult to convince corporations or RECREATION, PARKS AND ARTS PINELLAS COUNTY LARGO HOUSING GETTING PROACTIVE ABOUT PUBLIC SAFETY See BLIGHT, page 4A See SHOOTER, page 4A See AFFORDABLE, page 3A See COURSE, page 4A DonÂ’t forget to spring forward Daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 11, 2 a.m. SPORTS Tiger set to tee it up at InnisbrookThe upcoming Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Golf and Spa Resort in Palm Harbor just got a lot more interesting.

Businesses with electronics or chemicals should arrange for dropoff and payment by calling EQ Florida at 813-319-3400 for chemical disposal.LFR seeks volunteers to install smoke detectorsLARGO Largo Fire Rescue is seeking up to 25 volunteers to assist the Red Cross in a campaign to provide smoke detectors to an underserved Largo neighborhood community April 28. The goal is to reach 500 homes during the event that is tentatively scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided. If you are interested in assisting, please email Summer Mahr at email@example.com. It's also a problem for anybody who lives paycheck to paycheck, who might not have paid sick leave or savings for an emergency. The HFA of Pinellas County was created by state statute to alleviate the shortage of affordable housing. It is a dependent special district of the county. It has programs to help rst-time homebuyers and to assist lowto moderate-income renters among others. The county's housing program includes the Community Housing Trust Fund and the Affordable Housing Land Assembly Fund. The HFA administers both through an interlocal agreement with the County Commission. From 2006-2016, Housing Trust Fund money was allocated to HFA, Pinellas County, Clearwater, Largo and St. Petersburg. More than 2,000 units of affordable housing have been provided. The County Commission contributed more than $19.2 million to the fund. The program generated nearly $5.6 million. Outside sources contributed nearly $212.4 million. The result was 219 units made available for special needs residents, 195 units for households who make 50 percent of Area Median Income, 751 units for households who make 60 percent of AMI, 95 units for those who make 80 percent AMI and 592 units for household who make 120 percent of AMI. AMI in Pinellas County is $59,800 for a four-person household. Thirty percent AMI for a four-person household is $24,600, 50 percent is $29,900, 60 percent is $35,880, 80 percent is $47,850 and 120 percent AMI is $71,760 for a four-person household. The AMI income is lower with fewer persons in a home. For example, for a one-person household, 30 percent AMI is only $12,600. The Land Assembly Fund receives Penny for Pinellas money, which can be used only for acquisition. The land purchased is held in separate land trusts and affordability of housing units constructed by others on that land is ensured for 99 years with the right to renew for another 99 years. Through this program, 360 new affordable housing units will become available and another 160 units will be preserved. The majority, 80 percent, is for households at 60 percent AMI or lower. Driver reviewed the inventory of properties in the program, including those that have been completed, those still under construction and those still in the closing process.FAST wants assurancesMore money for affordable housing will come from Penny for Pinellas during the years 20202030. Of the $2 billion in revenue estimated to be collected during the 10 years, 8.3 percent is dedicated to economic development and affordable housing. Faith and Action for Strength Together, commonly referred to as FAST, a local organization comprised of 40 church congregations, continues to ask commissioners to commit 4.15 percent of that money to affordable housing. Six of the seven commissioners have verbally committed to spending 4.15 percent; however, FAST wants it in writing. Several members showed up at the Feb. 27 meeting to speak on the issue. "Right now, the written plan says that 8.3 percent will be spent on affordable housing and economic development," said the Rev. Robert Ward of Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in St. Petersburg. "We know when push comes to show, the needs of the poor never win out over businesses. That's why we want the commission to pass an ordinance that would make sure at least 4.15 percent gets spent on affordable housing." Commissioners say they understand the concerns of FAST members, but pointed out that even if an ordinance was passed, it could be changed in the future. The recommendation was to make sure elected leaders in the future have a commitment to affordable housing.Habitat for HumanityA major partner in the county's crusade to create more affordable housing is Habitat for Humanity. Last year, the organization built 59 new homes and served 18 families through its Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, according to Mike Sutton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County. To date, 1,300 Habitat homes have been built in Pinellas, making the local organization the second largest in nation based on new construction. The largest is in Collier County, Sutton said. The County Commission donated some of the land where the new homes were built, including several parcels in the Danville area of Largo. On Feb. 27, commissioners unanimously approved giving Habitat nine parcels in the Greater Ridgecrest area also near Largo to construct additional affordable housing. Sutton said it was a misconception that Habitat "gave away houses." He said the homeowners do work in exchange for their new houses. In addition, they pay taxes with more than $496,000 paid collectively by Habitat homeowners in 2017. Sutton thanked commissioners for their help. "We're so blessed to have support throughout the county," he said.

"A lot of people say that's great, but when they hear they need a few hours, they kind of shy away from it," he said.School safetySchools have also inquired about the program. He said members of Pinellas Prep Academy have undergone the training multiple times, and of cers conducted the training at Largo High School for the first time Feb. 20-21. Sue Porter, a retired special education teacher and longtime volunteer with the LPD, thinks every school in Pinellas County should participate. "Hiding behind desks and chairs is not the way to face these attention-seeking mad men doing these evil deeds," she wrote in an email to the Leader. "The ALICE training gives you tools to very possibly minimize the loss of life and sure opened my eyes to the facts that we don't have to just sit there and be sitting ducks." Lisa Wolf, spokeswoman for Pinellas County Schools, said the district's active-shooter training is based on the recommendations of the Department of Homeland Security and its Run, Hide, Fight method, and that lockdown drills are held once each semester. Wolf added that the school district has several other security measures in place, such as a safety and security team that works full-time to help schools with safety plans, school resource officers and video surveillance at every middle and high school and a Pinellas County Schools police department with 24/7 availability. Tran said the Run, Hide, Fight method is similar, but the ALICE training is more proactive and puts participants through ve to seven real-life scenarios. "With a lot of people, the light bulb goes off with the hands-on scenarios," he said. "One of the things that we tell them is that if you are in an active-shooter situation, do something rather than not doing anything. Because if you don't do anything, and the shooter is in the room, the chances are you're going to die." Some of those strategies include methods of barricading a door or for fending off the intruder. "Don't just rely on that door or expect the lock on the door is going to stop a shooter from coming in," he said. "We demonstrate things and tell them, Look, is there a way you can barricade the door? Think outside the box.'" In the about three years the LPD has been offering the course, Tran said it has trained more than 1,500 people. But that's not nearly good enough, he added. "In my opinion, that's not a lot. You have around 80,000 in the city of Largo alone. My goal is to train everybody." If you are interested in setting up an ALICE training session, call Tran at 727-587-6730 or email email@example.com.

While more than a year has passed, those concerns remain for some. In an email to the City Commission on March 5, John Douglass of Safety Harbor said he walks around the park three to five times a week because of the serenity it offers. "Ever since this idea came up, I've had to wonder why anyone would put such an operation there," he wrote. "It will ruin the park, create parking and noise issues for the local residents. I'd think it would also affect the wildlife that lives within the park as well. I hope you will all reconsider this idea and shut it down, at least for this park." The initial complaints prompted the city to conduct a parking and restroom study to determine whether improvements or code upgrades were required. The report, which was released in February 2017, stated that the existing restrooms near the tennis courts and baseball field are at capacity for normal use, so the city may want to consider adding a separate set of outdoor restrooms. The cost was expected to be about $20,000, and city officials said TreeUmph! would likely have to pay for it. Because of the hurricane, Schubert said on March 6 that the city hasn't had any more discussions with TreeUmph! about extra costs for the amenities. "If they come back and they're serious about developing the course here, then we are going to have to have some serious discussions as to what the building code requires regarding restroom facilities and any other site issues that need to be addressed," he said. At this point, though, Schubert would just like to know if Largo remains in TreeUmph!'s plans. "Ideally, we would like them to make a decision in a timely manner as to whether they are going to build the course here or decide not to," he said. "We'd love to see the course built here, but certainly at some point we are going to need a de nitive decision one way or the other." Chris George is editor of the Largo Leader.

COURSE, from page 1A Photos courtesy of the CITY OF LARGOA derelict house at 528 First Ave. NE in Largo is shown before, above, and after demolition, below. Crews demolished the home that has been vacant for years as part of the city's campaign to address nuisance properties in neighborhoods.action beginning in 2012. Following years of efforts made difficult by title problems with the property, the city purchased the home for $2,000 in late 2017 from an out-of-state-owner, Bloom Enterprises. "It took quite a while to work out an agreement with the property owner, but we're very happy with the results," Schubert said. The firm initially purchased the home at a tax sale in July 2016 and applied to the Largo Rental Rehabilitation program to obtain financing to rehabilitate the structure and to rent it as an affordable housing unit. The cost to rehab the home, however, exceeded the value of the property. So, Bloom decided to cut its losses and sell it to the city, which used $2,000 in code enforcement funds to buy it. Unfortunately, the size of the lot was too small and new construction wasn't a viable option, so it will be sodded and provide temporary open space for the neighborhood. Using Community Development Block Grant funds, city officials managed extermination of a rodent infestation and abatement of asbestos before arranging for demolition. Officials say the demolition is just one of the strategies they are employing to tackle problem properties. Others include lien forgiveness programs for those willing to rehabilitate homes and the acquisition of properties through the city's affordable housing program. BLIGHT, from page 1A By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Pinellas County School Board members voted unanimously Feb. 27 to support Gov. Rick Scott's action plan and funding proposals to keep students safe. Of cials also expressed opposition to a plan to train and arm teachers. In a separate vote, members agreed 6-1 to support a ban on military-style semi-automatic assault weapons, as proposed by Board member Linda Lerner, and to encourage other school boards in the state and nation to consider doing the same. Board member Carol Cook voted no. School Superintendent Michael Grego traveled to Tallahassee Feb. 20 to participate in one of three workshops hosted by Scott to address school safety in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which killed 17 people. Scott held three separate workshops education, mental health and child welfare, and law enforcement. Grego took part in the one with other education of cials. Grego told School Board members that he had spent the two weeks, since the shooting in Parkland, "entrenched" in the subject of school safety. He talked about Scott's proposal that came out of the Feb. 20 workshops and the work being done by the House and Senate, including passage of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act by the Senate on Feb. 26. "The shooting in Parkland brought our state to what it feels like a boiling point a call to action, so to speak," he said. "But this action, let me be honest, is long overdue." He said looking at recent history in the state and country, "it is absolutely appalling that we have taken as long as we have to reach this point." "When we experienced Sandy Hook in 2012, this country was shaken," Grego said. "How could such a thing happen to elementary school children? Since then, nothing really, truly has been done. That's the sad note." Grego noted that since 2012 there have been 239 school shootings nationwide, 438 people shot and 138 killed. And that doesn't count other mass shootings, such as the church in Texas or the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. "It is my sincere hope that we begin to end the discussion about this and translate into some level of action," he said. The school district is looking at opportunities to improve school safety. The Board met in executive session Feb. 20 to make plans to work on security and training. The governor's plan aims at keeping guns out of the hands of people who would misuse them, Grego said. It would increase the age from 18 to 21 or older to be able to purchase a gun with exceptions for active military personnel, law enforcement and some others. It would ban bump stocks, which Grego said, using words of a middle-school student, is a "no-brainer." The governor's plan would enhance penalties for threats made to schools via social media, which is not included in the Senate's bill. Scott's plan also would make it mandatory to have a school resource of cer in every school that must be a sworn deputy or police officer. The governor proposed a ratio of one SRO per 1,000 students with consideration given to the size of the campus. The ratio is not in the Senate's plan, he said. "Scott does not support arming teachers and I absolutely agree with that," Grego said. School Board members agreed. Grego said while some teachers might be capable of handling a gun, not all would be. He believes students need the very best trained to protect them, which would be law enforcement personnel. "Teachers don't sign up for that. They sign on to teach and nurture students," he said. Grego does agree that students and faculty should undergo active shooter training. Access to mental health counselors also is part of the governor's plan. Each school would be required to have a threat assessment team. Grego said Pinellas already has a threat committee, but it doesn't include everything in the governor's proposal. The district also has a safety and security council, safety and security team, giving Pinellas the structure to build on to create a team based on the governor's plan.Board opposes arming teachers PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOLS

County 7A Leader, March 8, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Beautiful weather, miles of sandy beaches coupled with a clever plan to market the destination has resulted in another good year for Pinellas County's tourism. David Downing, president and CEO for Visit St. Pete-Clearwater, presented a "snapshot" of December statistics and a report on statistics from January-December 2017 during the Feb. 21 Tourist Development Council meeting. According to the report, local hoteliers sold 5,216,603 rooms in 2017, a 6.3 percent increase over 2016. The average daily rate was $143.31, up 3.2 percent from last year. The revenue per available room was $102.82, a hike of 5.1 percent. And tourist development tax money rolled in with collections of more than $56 million up 8.5 percent from last year. December was a good month with a 12 percent increase in the number of rooms sold with an average daily rate up 4.9 percent from last December, giving hoteliers a 10.2 percent increase in revenue per available room. The county collected nearly $3.94 million in tourist development taxes, a 14.83 percent hike over 2016. Downing said the county had enjoyed 52 straight months of growth in tourist development tax collections year-over-year. And, according to a forecast from Smith Travel Research, the county's tourism industry should continue to grow through at least the rst quarter of 2019. Part of the success of the county's tourism market is attributable to the marketing campaigns by Visit St. PeteClearwater, including those designed to entice those who live in areas, such as New York City, where it is cold in the wintertime to come visit.Airbnb contributes to local economyVisit St. Pete-Clearwater recently added a portal to its website (www.visitstpeteclearwater.com/ top-airbnbs-st-peteclearwater) allowing visitors to book Airbnb accommodations. Kenny Montilla, Mobilization Program director for Airbnb, presented information Feb. 21 about how the service worked and contributes to the local economy. The concept began 10 years ago when three guys needed a way to make money to pay the rent. They rented out space in their home, which sparked the birth of Airbnb. The company now allows others to supplement their income by renting out a room or rooms in their home. Montilla says Airbnb's website has 140 million users and the vacation rental platform is available in 191 countries. Airbnb provides an economic opportunity for homeowners and a way to "enable anyone to belong anywhere." And the company contributes to the local economy. In 2015, Airbnb collaborated with the Florida Department of Revenue on an agreement to collect and remit state sales tax on behalf of 40,000 vacation rental hosts in the state. That same year, Airbnb began working with the state's counties to collect and remit tourist development (bed) taxes. Pinellas County was one of the rst to make an agreement with Airbnb. Because of these agreements, in 2017, Airbnb paid in more than $33 million in sales tax to the DOR and $12.7 million was shared among the 39 counties that now have an agreement for bed tax collections. Pinellas County received $1.87 million in bed tax revenue. Some TDC members expressed concerned about Airbnb competing with others that provide lodging in the county. Montilla said Airbnb's intent was not to compete with existing hotels but to provide guests with accommodations in speci c neighborhoods. He said 91 percent of those using Airbnb wanted to say local. They like to visit favorite venues recommended by their hosts. They support local businesses that might not be located in places such as Clearwater Beach. He said 71 percent of Airbnb hosts were located outside main tourist areas. He also said the typical person using Airbnb stayed 2.1 times longer than at traditional lodging and spent 1.8 times more money with 41 percent of that spending in local neighborhoods. TDC members asked if Airbnb hosts had to meet re, health and other regulations. They asked if they had re inspections the same as hotels, motels and other lodging facilities. Montilla said they did not have the same regulations since they are homes, not hotels. "That's not to say that some safety measures should be taken," he said. But, he said renting a bedroom in someone's home was different than using a hotel, adding that a "safer place is better for all parties." TDC member Eric Waltz, general manager for the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach, believes Airbnb is competition for local hoteliers. He said they should be on the "same playing field" with the same regulations and rules and visits from the re marshal. Joanne Kennedy, TDC member and Indian Rocks Beach commission, talked about pending state legislation that would prohibit local governments from regulating rentals. Kennedy has rental property, so she feels "caught in the middle." However, she said something needed to be done about shortterm rental properties that become party houses and cause problems with noise and parking. "We want people to be able to make money and supplement income," she said. Montilla said Airbnb can regulate host accommodations and didn't want to advertise party houses or those that cause a problem with trash or noise. He said if enough complaints came in about a property, they would be removed from the platform. He said it was the host's responsibility to research local regulations about renting out rooms or their home. He said they are encouraged to reach out to the local clerk or city councilperson. "If they cause a nuisance, we will reach out and take care of it," he said. Suzette Porter is TBNÂ’s Pinellas County editor.

The project began Wednesday, March 7, and will run through May 12. Pinellas County deputies will be conducting on-the-street high visibility education and enforcement details that will stress the importance of pedestrian and bicycle safety. The purpose of the project is to educate and enforce safe pedestrian, bicyclist and driver behavior in designated hot spot areas in an effort to reduce traf c crashes and fatalities involving pedestrians and bicyclists. The operation will include the distribution of educational materials, as well as the issuance of warnings and/or citations to pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists in accordance with Florida Statutes. Deputies also will be handing out free bike lights to those bicyclists they encounter that need lights. Deputies will conduct high visibility patrol details at least three times a week, at seven different pre-designated "hot spots" throughout the county.Airport opens privacy room for mothersCLEARWATER St. PeteClearwater International Airport recently opened its first privacy room for moms in Gates 2-6 Post Security. Located next to the restrooms, the room has a comfortable recliner, table, electrical outlet, sanitary wipes, a bench for additional family seating and a few toys to keep children entertained.

8ALeader, March 8, 2018Pinellas prepares for St. PatrickÂ’s Day fun By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersLook around and you may discover leprechauns lurking amidst the palm trees and palmettos.

St. Patrick's Day is the one day of the year when everyone can connect with their Irish side. Preparations are underway all around Pinellas to celebrate the holiday on Saturday, March 17. Area residents will soon be downing pints of Guinness while singing along to Irish drinking tunes such as "Whiskey in the Jar" and "The Wild Rover."

9A Leader, March 8, 2018St. Patrick's Day is here. To celebrate, one can certainly binge on corned beef, down a pint or two of Guinness or display shamrocks in all of their Kelly green glory. But there are many other ways to celebrate Ireland and its rich culture and history. Music lovers who can't pass up a good tune can use St. Patrick's Day as an excuse to explore the music of Ireland and the many musicians who the island has spawned. U2: U2 formed in 1976 in Dublin, but it wasn't until the group's fth album, "The Joshua Tree," released in 1987, that they became international superstars. That album produced U2's only No. 1 singles to date in the United States, "With or Without You," and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." However, the band continues to be a driving force in music as well as sociopolitical activism. U2 is made up of Bono, the Edge, Larry Mullen, Jr., and Adam Clayton. Glen Hansard: Hansard was part of both The Frames and the duo The Swell Season and has recently been performing on his own and collaborating with many other musicians. Hansard was rst introduced to the world after appearing in the BAFTA-winning lm "The Commitments," as well as starring in the lm "Once" with his The Swell Season partner MarkÂŽta IrglovÂ‡. The movie earned Hansard an Academy Award for the song "Falling Slowly." Hansard cites Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison as in uences. Van Morrison: Speaking of Van Morrison, he was born in Belfast as George Ivan Morrison in 1945. Morrison rose to prominence in the 1960s as the lead singer of the Irish R&B band Them. He then began his solo career in the late 1960s with the release of "Astral Weeks." Morrison's best-loved songs include "Brown-Eyed Girl," "Domino" and "Wild Night." Flogging Molly: While lead singer Dave King is a native of Dublin, his band, Flogging Molly, was formed in Los Angeles. A Celtic punk band with heavy-metal roots, Flogging Molly fuses traditional Irish music and rock. Before making it big, Flogging Molly was a weekly staple at Molly Malone's pub in Los Angeles. Among the band's most popular tunes is "If I Ever Leave This World Alive." The Cranberries: Fronted by Limerick vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, who died suddenly in early 2018, The Cranberries have dabbled in indie pop, punk, Irish folk, and other musical elements. Their 1993 debut studio album, "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?", became a fast commercial success. The Dubliners: Founded in Dublin in 1962, the band was originally known as The Ronnie Drew Ballad Group and was instrumental in bringing lively Irish folk songs to Europe and elsewhere. The band spanned more than 50 years with various lineups and in uenced other Irish artists like The Pogues and The Dropkick Murphys. Beyond these performers, The Script, Thin Lizzy, Damien Rice, Stiff Little Fingers, Snow Patrol, and Enya are some of the other talented musicians to come from Ireland.Ireland is a small island nation, but its diminutive size does not mean it doesn't have a storied history. Celtic in uences and Christianity have played a strong role in helping Ireland become what it is today. Prior to the arrival of Christianity, there was not much written history of Ireland, as much information was passed through rich but spoken tales. It's believed the Celtic culture began to evolve in Ireland between 800 and 400 BC. The ancient Celts were various tribes living in several parts of Europe north of the Mediterranean. Although it's easy to imagine Celtic warriors invading Ireland like the Vikings and Normans did many years later, historians believe the Celts integrated their customs more gradually through trade and travel. The last of the Celts to arrive in Ireland, the Goidelic and Gaelic, are perhaps best known for their in uences on the country. St. Patrick is revered and celebrated for bringing Christianity to Ireland, but in his book, "The Story of Ireland," Irish author Neil Hegarty states that early Christians were most likely Britons who were brought to Ireland as slaves. In 431 A.D. Bishop Palladius arrived from Rome to minister to any "Irish believing in Christ." However, St. Patrick is more widely credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Proximity to Britain put Ireland in the eyes of the monarchy. In 1167, Anglo-Normans under the direction of England's King Henry II were able to take possession of the island. When Henry VIII became king in 1541, Ireland became formally united under the British crown. The area that would eventually be called Northern Ireland has seen its share of con ict. In 1601, Scottish farmers, craftsmen and other settlers arrived at the port of Donaghadee to create the Plantation of Ulster, a British (Protestant) settlement. Gaelic landowners were expelled, and this area would be in turmoil for a century to come. An effort to regain an Irish-controlled country and one that supported Catholicism became a common theme in Irish history. The Irish Catholic Confederation was one attempt to do just that, as was the Irish Rebellion of 1798. In 1829, Daniel O'Connell's Catholic Association frightened the British with the threat of anarchy in Ireland. The Easter Rising in 1916, which seized key government buildings in Dublin, would help set the course for the Irish War of Independence. In this uprising, the Irish Republican Army fought against British security forces. As a result of this uprising, Northern Ireland, a small area of the island, was partitioned to become a British-controlled area. From 1916 to 1937, Ireland held the status of a dominion. In 1937, a new constitution was adopted and Ireland became a republic, though Northern Ireland remained under British control. Northern Ireland continued to be a conflict-driven portion of the island, and tensions boiled over when British soldiers shot 28 unarmed civilians during a peaceful protest on January 30, 1972, in Derry. Known as "Bloody Sunday," or the "Bogside Massacre," this incident was just one of many signi cant events that were ultimately referred to as "The Troubles." More peaceful interactions have occurred in recent years thanks in part to the Good Friday Agreement signed in 1998. Today, Ireland ranks among the 25 wealthiest countries in the world. Though Irish history has its fair share of turmoil, the country has endured and is today among the most in uential nations in the world.Events that helped shape IrelandPopular Irish bands and solo artists 030818 GetOne FREE Green BeerWith entree purchase during St. Pats week long celebration.

10A Police Leader, March 8, 2018 Police BeatMan charged with arson in Seminole church resSEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives charged a 33-year-old Seminole man Feb. 27 with two counts of rst-degree arson in connection with res at two local churches. Detectives assigned to the sheriff's Arson & Auto Theft Unit say Brody Allen Seiger is responsible for starting res at two churches in Seminole sometime between 11 p.m. Feb. 3 and 1 a.m. Feb. 4. The res occurred at the Seminole United Methodist Church, 5400 Seminole Blvd., and Universal Harmony Church, 5903 Seminole Blvd. Detectives say both churches were unoccupied at the time and the res caused minor property damage. Detectives believed the res were set intentionally and were related. Detectives obtained surveillance video of the man they believed was responsible for the church res. The surveillance video was placed on social media and detectives received a tip that helped to identify Seiger as the suspect. Detectives interviewed Seiger at the Sheriff's Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo on Feb. 27. Detectives say Seiger admitted to setting the church res claiming that he set the res for God. According to detectives, Seiger broke a window at the Universal Harmony Church during the late-night hours of Feb. 3. Seiger lit a doormat on re and pushed the doormat through the broken window of the church. About an hour later, he broke a window at the Seminole United Methodist Church, poured gasoline through the broken window and ignited the gasoline. Seiger was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bail was set at $100,000.Father, son accused of abusing 4 juvenilesOLDSMAR Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives arrested two Oldsmar men Feb. 28 for sexually abusing four female victims. Detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit began their investigation Jan. 30, after a female victim contacted the Sheriff's Of ce and reported that 43-year-old Joshua Pasco and 63-year-old James Pasco Jr. had sexually battered her on separate occasions. Detectives identi ed four female victims who they say suffered sexual abuse at the hands of Joshua and/or James Pasco, starting in the early 1970s and continuing through January. Detectives say Joshua Pasco sexually abused the first victim in the late 1990s when the victim was between the ages of 9 and 13. The second juvenile victim was sexually abused in 2016 while Joshua Pasco had familial authority over the victim. Detectives say James Pasco had inappropriate sexual activity with four victims dating back as far as the early 1970s. Three victims were juveniles between the ages of 5 and 13 when the sexual abuse took place. The fourth victim was an adult when James Pasco sexually battered her in 2017 and 2018. Detectives say most of the victims were in Joshua and James Pasco's familial or custodial authority at the time of the abuse. Detectives arrested Joshua and James Pasco, who are father and son, Feb. 28 at the Sheriff's Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo. Joshua Pasco was charged with two counts of sexual battery familial authority, one count of lewd & lascivious battery and one count of felony driving while license suspended or revoked. Bail was set at $230,000. James Pasco was charged with three counts of sexual battery on a child less than 12-years of age, two counts of sexual battery familial authority, two counts of sexual battery and one count of lewd & lascivious battery.

Viewpoints 11A Leader, March 8, 2018WASHINGTON For President Donald Trump, the family that works together works best. But the appearance of con icts of interest with senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, the inappropriate behavior of Kushner and Trump family members who don't work in the administration, and Trump's remaining ties to his family-run billion-dollar empire add up to a picture that makes the opportunistic Clinton Foundation look like, well, a charity. When president-elect Trump picked Kushner for a top slot, the pick signaled that the unconventional candidate would continue to out convention in of ce by hiring (a) a family member, (b) a successful businessman with little experience in politics, and (c) someone with no experience in the military or public of ce for a plum political post. Supporters largely shrugged off charges of nepotism. Trump always said that he would hire outsiders to shake up Washington, they argued. Perhaps the outside-the-beltway approach that won Trump the White House would produce results in the push for Middle East peace which he added to Kushner's portfolio and other efforts where career bureaucrats had failed. Also at the time, Kushner impressed many as a moderating in uence on Trump. In a country that prides itself for being a meritocracy, however, Barbara Perry, of the University of Virginia's Miller Center thinks it's wrong for elected of cials to hire family members when they should be looking for the best staffers. President Lyndon Johnson clearly thought the same when he signed an anti-nepotism bill seen as a rebuke of the late President John F. Kennedy's choice of attorney general, his brother Bobby. (In January 2017, a Justice Department career attorney determined that the law applied to agency staff, not White House staff.) And face it, there's been a dynastic element to Ivanka Trump's behavior. When she sat in her father's seat at the G20 meeting in Hamburg last year, scolds thought the act of assuming an unearned place of power showed disrespect to other world leaders. Last month while representing the United States at the Olympics in Seoul, Ivanka Trump chastised NBC's Peter Alexander when he asked the senior adviser if she believed women who accused her father of sexual harassment. She told Alexander she believed her father, and said the question was "inappropriate" to ask the president's daughter. Perry sees an undemocratic element to political dynasties, established or in the making. In a meritocracy, the cream rises to the top. When politicians hire family members, they're not necessarily picking the best aides, so much as the most loyal. In real life, Kushner has saddled Trump with bad headlines, which Trump had no trouble garnering on his own. Kushner's participation in the Russian Trump Tower meeting left him exposed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Last week The New York Times reported on two large loans made to Kushner's family's after principals met with Kushner in the White House. During the transition, Kushner met with foreign investors, even as he was seeking capital for a large New York property facing more than $1 billion in debt. Spokespersons say there is no relationship between the meetings and Kushner's business. Indeed, the meetings did not lead to any inappropriate transactions. But it doesn't make the administration look good. Last week, The Washington Post reported that intelligence of cials had learned that China, Israel, Mexico and the United Arab Emirates had looked into how they could manipulate Kushner "by taking advantage of his complex business arrangement, nancial dif culties and lack of foreign policy experience." Kushner's top-secret security clearance was downgraded so that he no longer has access to the presidential daily intelligence brie ngs, which he liked to peruse. No surprise there, observed the Miller Center's Perry. Connections with other governments, severe debt and bad personal behavior are red ags that can doom a background check. "He sends up two of the red ags." Like the Clintons, the Trumps have seemed oblivious to how their nancial ties present multiple appearances of potential con icts of interest. Trump, his daughter and Kushner are all working without pay. All three have relinquished management control over some businesses, but not necessarily their ownership share. So there is no way to separate Trump from his properties. When GOP donors attend a fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago, the president stands to pro t. The president set up a fund for pro ts from foreign visitors who stay at his hotels the proceeds are supposed to go to charity but that scheme does not interrupt pro ts from U.S. special interests who spend money at Trump properties. Last month, eldest son Donald Trump Jr. traveled to India "as a businessman." But there was no escaping his promotion of high-rise properties that brandished the Trump name across India. In May, Kushner's sister, Nicole Kushner Meyer, was caught trying to woo potential investors in Beijing with the potential to win investor visas to the U.S. at an event that billed her as the senior adviser's sister. The New York Times reported that Kushner Companies, the senior adviser's family business, received super-size loans from two businessmen who met with Kushner in the White House. Spokespersons for Kushner, the company and businesses told the Times there was no connection between the meetings and the loans but these are issues voters have to take on faith. And it's not as if the president cannot nd quali ed individuals who don't carry Kushner's baggage. "Each of these individual stories could have been the end" of another president, said Perry. An ad campaign for an air freshening product warns how consumers can become "nose blind" that is, blind to certain smells because they have lingered for so long. She offered, "I've kind of become Trump blind, deaf to all the noise." Contact Debra J. Saunders at email@example.com or 202-6627391. Follow @DebraJSaunders on Twitter. Not long ago a breath of badly-needed fresh air was injected into the news broadcasting business. It took the form of Newsy, a video news network and cable news channel. It specializes in several things. One of them is a refusal to engage in the "You're a right-wing fascist!" and "You're a left-wing commie!" warfare that so many news outlets seem to be taking part in today. A second welcome trait is Newsy's style of TV presentation. It is brief and to the point. For each news item, the camera hits on a young man or woman, wearing ordinary street clothing, who delivers the essential guts of the news story in maybe 30 seconds. That's it. Then on to the next presenter and the next news clip. No sixexpert panel of analysts or alleged experts. No tedious, 20-minute evisceration of the news event and its possible consequences in the months ahead. What a relief. Thirdly, Newsy seems to believe that (1) places other than the USA and Washington, D.C. exist, and (2) political happenings, no matter their point of origin, do not necessarily outrank other news topics. If this attitude could be converted into a bene cial disease, I would pray for its infecting ABC, NBC, Fox, MSNBC and a dozen or so other national news TV outlets. Finally, as far as I can tell, Newsy does not pander to viewers who delight in watching interviews with weeping relatives and friends following the deaths of loved ones. This often re ects TV networks' ceaseless quest for higher TV ratings more than a desire to show genuine emotion. Newsy is owned by the E.W. Scripps broadcasting company. Newsy's headquarters are in Columbia, Missouri; other offices are in Chicago, Denver, Washington, D.C. and Cincinnati.During a 24-minute span on a recent afternoon, I watched as Newsy gave its news-headline treatment to a wide variety of 15 separate news stories. During that same amount of time, the panelists assembled on screen by the big boys (CNN, Fox, NBC et al.) would have barely begun to clear their throats. Did I end up with an in-depth thorough knowledge of the 15 news items? Of course not. That's what Google, Wikipedia and other websites are there for, if and when we really need to know. The term "unbiased" is sprinkled through Newsy's self-descriptions. The company seems intent on staying clear of the "us vs. them" political and economic warfare that is tearing our country apart today. Instead, Newsy takes viewers around the world to get glimpses of actual warfare, plus brief but informative looks at less-bloody events in dozens of news categories. In addition to its 24/7 broadcasts, Newsy presents "Why," a 7-to-9 p.m. TV program each weeknight. It's Newsy's way of digging deeper into one or more important or at least very interesting aspects of today's worldwide panorama. (At this point, a full-disclosure admission: I live near Boston, where Newsy's TV broadcasts are available. I assumed that they would also be shown in the Tampa Bay area. I was mistaken; after writing most of this column, I learned that at present the Scripps organization does not have a Newsy TV outlet in this region. However, on March 1 a spokeswoman told me that Scripps is trying hard to establish one. When that day arrives my 38 Faithful Readers may understand why I turn on my TV set to Newsy several times each day.) Is skimming the tops of daily events the perfect answer to the problem of keeping track of this global nut-house you and I live in? Of course not. In an ideal world we'd all spend at least an hour a day reading printed accounts of what's going on. And there would be no never-ending medical and car insurance advertisements to interrupt our attention. Additionally, Newsy may face the same temptations that the big networks do: succumbing to points of view that violate the principles of objective journalism, plus the uploading of more commercials than are justi ed. Also, as time passes, some fans may drift away if Newsy fails to develop big-name newscasters like Wolf Blitzer, Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow, Laura Ingraham, Lester Holt and others.But that's in the realm of tomorrow. Today I must say: America needs Newsy.

Opioid deaths in Florida increased to 5,725 in 2016, a 35 percent increase over the previous year. It is important to remember that opioid abuse covers a range of things, including street drugs and prescription opioids. Of the 63,000 drug deaths in 2016, most were not related to prescriptions from doctors. Fentanyl, which attracted national attention due to the death of Michael Jackson, accounted for 19,000 deaths. Most of these deaths came from illegally made pills or powder that was then mixed with heroin or other drugs. Most of the fentanyl was illegally imported from China. Heroin accounted for 15,500 of the drug deaths. No physician prescribed this for their patients. Pain meds accounted for 14,500 deaths, but less than one-third of opioid abusers got their drugs from a doctor. Everyone wants to reduce drug deaths, but the legislature must adopt a plan that focuses on the real problem. Most drug deaths do not come from doctor-prescribed pain meds, so the plan to attack drug abuse must concentrate on the real source of the problem. Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature are focusing on abuse of prescription opioids. This is important, but the Legislature must realize that this is not the primary source of drug abuse. They must also be careful not to impose burdens on Floridians who need the pain meds prescribed by their doctor. We all want to eliminate illegal drug use and limit the over-prescription of drugs to those suffering from temporary pain. At the same time, we must realize that individuals suffering from a terminal illness, chronic pain or major surgery should not be denied access to pain meds that will allow them to function with minimal pain. That decision should be made by the doctor, not the Legislature. It is estimated that 11 percent of Americans suffer from chronic pain. This is a particular problem for the elderly, and Florida has more elderly citizens than any state. I have had chronic pain since age 12. When I was 20, I could no longer sit in my university classes because of the pain. I was forced to withdraw from classes and had my rst major back surgery. My physician wrote the draft board, which had just requested I appear for my physical, that I was un t to serve due to "chronic discogenic back pain." That surgery would be the first of three major back surgeries. I have had seven surgeries total, and ve were major surgical procedures. This does not include more than a dozen other medical procedures ranging from numerous epidurals to a procedure where surgeons attempted to thread a wire up my spinal canal. Nor does it count the osteoarthritis that led to a total knee replacement. I worry about the proposed threeand seven-day limits on pain meds. This means that many Floridians will no longer be able to travel to visit friends and family because they won't be able to get their pain meds. Vacations, especially overseas, will no longer be possible. Many pain patients are elderly and will have dif culty seeing a doctor every three to seven days. Instead of one visit to a pain specialist a month, patients must now visit the doctor as many as 10 times a month. The cost will be prohibitive for many patients. Then imagine the dif culty of going to the pharmacy every three to seven days. Prescription costs will skyrocket. Many in need of pain meds will likely go days without their meds because of the new guidelines. Withdrawal will happen. Melissa Sanders-Self, a teacher who suffers from neuroendocrine cancer who must have radiation treatments every three weeks, describes her withdrawal symptoms because she often cannot get the pain meds the doctor has prescribed. Sanders-Self writes: "Without medicines, I begin to vomit, shake and cry. I cannot concentrate." Every chronic pain patient can relate to her experiences. A nal issue is that the Legislature is attempting to become the doctor. Remember when Republicans across the nation opposed "Obamacare" because they said it interfered with the doctor/patient relationship. Isn't that precisely what the Legislature is now doing by dictating what medicines we may have and in what quantity? We can cut down on illegal drug use, but we must realize that most problems do not come from doctors prescribing pain meds for their patients. The Legislature does have a responsibility to see that Floridians who have documented pain needs can get the medicines they need. Imposing additional time and nancial costs on those who are already suffering from severe medical problems is hardly compassionate.

Sports 13A Leader, March 8, 2018 Last weekend's cold front was a definite indication of change. Soaring water temperatures have quickly been put back in their place from what we normally should see for this time of year. The reality is that things were happening much too quickly and at the pace we were on we would have been shing in mid-summer patterns in April. As it sits right now our bay water temperatures are around 65 degrees and as we brace for what appears to be a steady dose of cold fronts we might not see 70-degree water for at least a couple of weeks. The cooler water has slowed the snook bite down from a week ago. With the season opening the rst of March, anglers should concentrate their efforts for a chance at goodsized sh around bridges and creek mouths during the warm part of the day. Cast slow sinking jerkbaits or weighted shad style lures. Trout are thriving in the cooler water. A lot of good sized trout have returned to the shallows during the mid-afternoon incoming tide. Target spoil island dropoffs and mullet schools as they work their way onto the flats. Live sardines are best, however soft plastic jigs in shrimp colors will catch plenty of trout.Cold means anglers should target trout Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersPALM HARBOR The upcoming Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Golf and Spa Resort in Palm Harbor just got a lot more interesting. Tiger Woods announced via Twitter on March 2 that he would be joining the star-studded field, which already includes Sergio Garcia, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Zach Johnson, Justin Rose, last year's winner, Adam Hadwin, and Rory McIlroy, who also will be making his debut at the tournament. "After a good recovery week I'm committing to play in the @ValsparChamp and @APinv next two weeks," Woods wrote on Twitter, also referring to the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. It will be the rst time the 14time major winner will play the tournament at the Copperhead Course. The tournament tees off Thursday, March 8. Woods is on the comeback trail this year after being sidelined for a year because of back surgery. He has made three starts on the PGA Tour this season and tied for 12th in his last start at The Honda Classic, which was his best Tour nish since 2015. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $39 for a specific day, $125 for a weekly book of tickets. Children age 15 and younger are admitted free when with a paid adult.

Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from Afghanistan under unusual circumstances to help take care of his ailing father, who once ruled the house with an iron rst, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mother. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, and with IsaacÂ’s newly-out transgender sibling Max as her ally, sheÂ’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in this sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesnÂ’t always free you from it. It leaves so many of our so-called normative and progressive ideas about gender, family, the middle class Â– and cleaning Â– in hilarious and ultimately tragic disarray.

Through one girlÂ’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing oneÂ’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by oneÂ’s own light. Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is MegÂ’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.Â‘GringoÂ’Genre: Comedy and action Cast: David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Thandie Newton and Photo courtesy of AMAZON STUDIOS/STX ENTERTAINMENTFrom left, David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton star in Â“Gringo.Â”Photo courtesy of THE ROOTS AGENCYThe Irish Rovers play Capitol Theatre March 10.

The past year has seen them excite yet another generation by returning to the radio airwaves, expanding their visibility on YouTube and returning to the small screen with two television specials in the last two years. It was 50 years ago that The Irish Rovers had a breakout hit with Â“The Unicorn,Â” their second album. The album and title track took them from folk clubs in America to concert halls and television sets worldwide. This tour is a tribute to that collection of songs and one particular ditty that left a mystery for a generation, Â“Whatever happened to the unicorns?Â” The current tour supports the 2017 album release of Â“The Unicorn, The Continuing Story.Â” According to the Roots Agency, the story of the Rovers begins in 1963 in Canada, where the 16-year old George Millar and 23-year old Jim Ferguson, both new emigrants from Northern Ireland, met in Toronto at an Irish function. They ended up singing together until dawn. That night, the Irish Rovers were launched. They performed as a duo until GeorgeÂ’s cousin, Joe Millar, immigrated to Canada the following year. Joe, who sang traditional ballads and played button-key, was recruited as he stepped off the plane. GeorgeÂ’s musician father Bob Millar, who was also a button key accordion player, became the bandÂ’s rst manager. For the next several months he guided the new band which started their career playing folk song festivals, clubs, hootenannies, The Port oÂ’ Call, and TorontoÂ’s Royal Alexandra Hotel. George, Jimmy and Joe left Toronto for Calgary to stay with brother Will who was singing folk songs at PhilÂ’s Pancake House which led to a daily Photo courtesy of THE ROOTS AGENCYThe Irish Rovers perform March 10 at ClearwaterÂ’s Capitol Theatre.

A&E NEWS, from page 2B CLEARWATER Â– Following a triumphant sold-out string of shows in Europe, Celebrating David Bowie recently kicked off the North American leg of the tour with a performance Feb. 10 in Silver Springs, Maryland. The tour Â– which features members of David BowieÂ’s bands including Mike Garson, Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard and Carmine Rojas Â– will make its way to Pinellas for one show Saturday, March 17, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $42.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. For a complete list of tour dates and more information including VIP packages, visit CelebratingDavidBowie.com. More than just a mere salute, Celebrating David Bowie keeps BowieÂ’s music alive with musicians who worked closely with him throughout his career and other top musicians greatly inuenced by him. Mike Garson is the Celebrating David Bowie band leader after having made his mark on numerous Bowie albums, including his much talked about masterly solo on the Â“Aladdin SaneÂ” track. Garson was BowieÂ’s longest and most frequent band member. They performed together for both BowieÂ’s rst and last concerts in the United States as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe in between. Legendary guitarist Earl Slick, who worked on landmark Bowie albums such as Â“Diamond Dogs,Â” Â“Young AmericansÂ” and Â“Reality,Â” is on board in North America along with Bowie band leader Gerry Leonard (A Reality Tour) and BowieÂ’s LetÂ’s Dance/ Serious Moonlight Tour bassist Carmine Rojas. Between them, they have over 30 years of experience of recording, writing and playing live with Bowie. Also joining the tour will be CdB 2017 standouts including vocalist Bernard Fowler, who is known for his work with The Rolling Stones, along with 2017 Grammy nominee Gaby Moreno, plus special guests and other former Bowie band members who may make surprise appearances along the way. The rotating ensemble with world class multi-instrumentalists changing song to song will perform a show highlighting elements that in uenced Bowie and that in turn Bowie in uenced: pop culture experimentation, art, fashion, science and futurism. Previous special guests on CdB shows have included Sting, Gary Oldman, Seal, Perry Farrell, The B-52Â’sÂ’ Kate Pierson, Ewan McGregor, Simon Le Bon, Gavin Rossdale, La Roux, Joe Elliott, Mr Hudson, Gail Ann Dorsey, Spandau BalletÂ’s Steve Norman, Corey Taylor, Ian Astbury, Darren Criss, Tony Hadley, Living Colour, The London Community Gospel Choir and The Harlem Gospel Choir, among many others. David Bowie died in 2016 following an 18-month battle with cancer. His body of work Â– including 28 studio albums Â– along with his multi-generational in uence and his legacy of fearless innovation and endless reinvention will continue to reach new audiences and provide inspiration for years to come.Celebrating David BowieFeaturing members of BowieÂ’s bands, the North American leg of the tour includes a stop at Capitol Theatre Photo by JAMIE TRUMPER/MITCH SCHNEIDER ORGANIZATIONMike Garson is the Celebrating David Bowie band leader.

The folk clubs of California became the learning grounds for the young Rovers, and (through old-fashioned hard work and a wee bit of Irish luck) they were offered a recording contract with Decca Records. The success of Â“The First of The Irish Rovers,Â” their debut album, led to their second album, Â“The Unicorn.Â” At this time, the addition of Wilcil McDowell enhanced their sound. In 1968, the predecessor of the Juno Awards named The Irish Rovers CanadaÂ’s Folk Group of the Year. The following year, they received a Grammy nomination for Folk Performance of the Year. Through the 1970s and early Â’80s, the Rovers brought their magic to television guest starring in several television programs, and then starring in three of their own television series: Â“The Irish Rovers ShowÂ” for the CBC, as well as Â“Party with the RoversÂ” and Â“The Rovers Comedy House.Â” They were also on Global Network in conjunction with Ulster Television in Ireland, which was syndicated around the world. In 2012, The Irish Rovers released Â“Drunken SailorÂ” on Rover Records. As well as featuring the title track, the album includes the single Â“Whores and HoundsÂ” as well as a tribute to the great ship Titanic on its 100th anniversary. Â“The Irish Rovers Christmas,Â” a DVD and television special, was filmed in Canada on the ski slopes and in the streets and pubs of Banff National Park. It includes their live Christmas concert lmed at Chatham, OntarioÂ’s historic Capitol Theatre, with musical guests from Ireland such as Morris Crum, Patrick Davey and Gerry OÂ’Connor. With original members George Millar, and Wilcil McDowell, the band includes John Reynolds and Sean OÂ’Driscoll who have been playing with the band for near 25 years. Will Millar left the group in 1994, and sadly Jimmy Ferguson passed away in 1997. In 2005 Joe Millar retired to the golf course, while his son, Ian, took up the family ranks. All members hail from Ireland. The Irish Rovers are still passionate about performing and will continue to tour and entertain their legions of fans. Like the Unicorn, the Rovers are legendary and magical, and a good time is guaranteed for all.

4B Pet Connection Leader, March 8, 2018Pets of the weekBoth dogs and cats explore their world with their mouths. We see a lot of problems with pets ingesting things that are not meant to be eaten. They do not have the cognitive function to think about the consequences of their actions. Their motto is Â“if it looks or smells good Â– eat it.Â” One of the most common poisons that we see in practice is ethelyne glycol (anti-freeze) intoxication. This liquid has a sweet taste to it and pets love it. The chemical that lowers the freezing point of your radiator causes havoc with your petÂ’s kidneys after it makes them look like they are drunk. They will stumble and seem demented and sometimes will have vomiting, diarrhea or seizures. When ingested, it causes the liver to change the alcohol in the anti-freeze to a solution that ultimately ends up as oxalic acid and aldehyde, which are very toxic to the kidneys. The treatment for the disease if we can diagnose it soon enough is to give them intravenous ethanol. That is why we keep a bottle of vodka at the clinic, for anti-freeze treatment only of course. This treatment gives the liver something else to do so it canÂ’t work on the anti-freeze and the poison is excreted. Some other common poisons that are caused by well-meaning owners when they give their pet a Â“treatÂ” are xylitol, chocolate and grapes. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that is used in gum and candies. It causes low blood sugar in dogs, which can turn into seizures and death; it does not cause problems in cats. Sorbitol and sucralose is safe for dogs, but a good rule is if it says Â“sugar freeÂ” donÂ’t give it to your dog or cat to be safe. Most all homes have chocolate in the form of candy or baking items. It contains methylxanthimes, theobromine and caffeine that if ingested in high enough concentration will cause increase heart rate, increase breathing rate, increase blood pressure and life-threatening heart arrthymias. Milk chocolate has much less of a poison than cocoa powder or BakerÂ’s and dark chocolate, but to be safe no chocolate is safest. Grapes cause the same type of clinical signs as anti-freeze, but the exact chemical is still in question. Thankfully, both grapes, raisins and chocolate need to be eaten in fairly large amounts to cause life-threatening problems, but please do not feel safe about knowingly given them to your pet. The number of grapes that are considered toxic seems to be getting smaller all the time. Most toxicologists say even one is cause for alarm. Many of our owners have medical conditions of their own and need to take medicine. Many of these drugs we use in veterinary medicine, but a dogÂ’s mentality when something is dropped on the oor is Â“eat it fast before the mean owner takes away my treat.Â” There is a tremendous size difference in the vast majority of our pets and their owners, so dosing is quite different and at too high a dose most all medicines can cause problem. Always read the label on medication to verify that the right species is getting the right drug. Veterinarians are very helpful in answering questions about most of the common poisons in pets and if they run into one they are not familiar with there are a few Â“pet poison control hotlinesÂ” that for a small fee will have a board-certi ed toxicologist help them with the speci c problem. The best way to avoid problems is for the owners to make a deal with their pets to not take each otherÂ’s food or medications.

10B Entertainment Leader, March 8, 2018Sharlto Copley Director: Nash Edgerton Rated: R An exhilarating mix of dark comedy, white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, Â“GringoÂ” joyrides into Mexico, where mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) nds himself at the mercy of his back-stabbing business colleagues back home, local drug lords and a morally con icted black-ops mercenary. Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth Â– or two steps ahead?Â‘The Hurricane HeistÂ’Genre: Thriller and action Cast: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Randy Couture, Melissa Bolona and Jamie Andrew Cutler Director: Rob Cohen Rated: PG-13 A crew of thieves plans the ultimate heist, to steal $600 million from the U.S. treasury facility located on the Gulf Coast of Alabama using a hurricane as their cover. When the storm blows up into a lethal Category 5 and their wellmade plans go awry, they find themselves needing a vault code known only by one female treasury agent, a need that turns murderous. But the treasury agent has picked up an unlikely ally, a meteorologist terri ed of hurricanes but determined to save his estranged brother kidnapped by the thieves. He uses his knowledge of the storm as a weapon to defeat the bad guys in this non-stop action/thriller. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Â‘The Leisure SeekerÂ’Genre: Drama Cast: Francesca Archibugi, Francesco Piccolo, Stephen Amidon and Paolo Virzi Director: Paolo Virzi Rated: R Directed by Paolo Virz, Â“The Leisure SeekerÂ” stars Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call the Leisure Seeker. The couple travels from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, recapturing their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.Â‘ThoroughbredsÂ’Genre: Thriller Cast: Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor Joy, Anton Yelchin and Paul Sparks Director: Cory Finley Rated: R Childhood friends Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over LilyÂ’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one anotherÂ’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.Â‘The Strangers: Prey at NightÂ’Genre: Horror Cast: Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison and Lewis Pullman Director: Johannes Roberts Rated: R A familyÂ’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and nd it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the familyÂ’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit Â“The Strangers.Â” Photo by CLAIRE FOLGER/FOCUS FEATURESAnya Taylor-Joy, left, stars as Lily and Olivia Cooke as Amanda in Â“Thoroughbreds,Â” a Focus Features release. OPENING, from page 1B Photo by DANIEL C. McFADDEN/SONY PICTURES CLASSICSDonald Sutherland stars as John Spencer and Helen Mirren as Ella Spencer in Â“The Leisure Seeker.Â” Photo by BRIAN DOUGLAS/AVIRON PICTURESCindy (Christina Hendricks) and her daughter Kinsey (Bailee Madison) attempt to call for help while being terrorized by a masked stranger in Â“The Strangers: Prey at Night.Â”TAMPA Â– Jobsite Theater will present the absurd, subversive family comedy Â“HirÂ” (pronounced Â“hereÂ”) by Taylor Mac, running March 9 through April 1, in the Shimberg Playhouse at the Straz Center, 1010 N. Macinnes Place, Tampa. Regularly priced tickets start at $29.50. For tickets and information, including performance times, call 813-229-7827 or visit www. strazcenter.org. Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from Afghanistan to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mother. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, and with IsaacÂ’s newly-out transgender sibling Max as her ally, sheÂ’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in MacÂ’s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesnÂ’t always free you from it. The cast includes Robert Spence Gabriel, Ned Averill-Snell, Roxanne Fay and Salem Brophy. The show is directed by David M. Jenkins, who also provides sound, and features designs from Ryan Finzelber (set, lights) and Katrina Stevenson (costumes). Jobsite is also working with Massachusetts-based dramaturg Finn LeFevre to better tackle the playÂ’s many complexities. Gabriel is a relative newcomer to the Tampa Bay area, having previously appeared as Crook nger Jake in JobsiteÂ’s Â“The Threepenny Opera.Â” This is BrophyÂ’s professional theater debut, having recently graduated from Eckerd College under the tutelage of Gavin Hawk. Fay and Averill-Snell are no strangers to area stages: Fay has most recently been seen in JobsiteÂ’s Â“The TempestÂ” and Averill-Snell in Â“Gloucester Blue.Â” Â“Hir,Â” the title, refers to a popular gender-free pronoun in the genderqueer community. Â“ItÂ’s not simply a reference to the character of Max, but a commentary on what it is all four of these characters are trying to do with masculinity,Â” said Jenkins in a press release. Â“Mac sets up a very traditional, very familiar-feeling kitchen-sink play Â– one that is positively hilarious -and then spins it on its axis, or maybe better stated tries to burn it all down.Â” Mac is a playwright, actor, singer-songwriter, performance artist, director, and producer considered to be one of the worldÂ’s leading theater artists. Mac has performed at Lincoln Center, ChicagoÂ’s Steppenworlf, the Sydney Opera House, the Spoleto Festival, and MOMA. Mac is a MacArthur Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama, and is the recipient of multiple awards such as the Kennedy Prize, the NY Drama Critics Circle Award, a Guggenheim, and two Obies. Jobsite is the resident theater company at the Shimberg Playhouse.
