The glass was cracked but stayed intact in the door as the demonstration ended while Jacobsohn, the national accounts manager for School Guard Glass, paused to catch his breath. He and other representatives of a partnership believe their products are superior to others used at schools, embassies and other places where the need for security is paramount, including Sandy Hook Elementary School. "If you are doing the security protocol for the Freedom Tower and the Sandy Hook Elementary School, it literally means you're the best security company in the world," said Chris Kapiloff, CEO of School Guard Glass, which is based in Massachusetts. The company is a subsidiary of Advanced Impact Technologies, which plans to expand its operations into Florida. Its new 100,000-square-foot facility is the former site of Great Bay Distributors at Starkey and Ulmerton roads. The fatal shootings of 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012 gave rise to the company's products that are now used in more than 1,000 schools. With school and building safety on the public's mind in the wake of BREAKING INTO the Tampa Bay market Photo by TOM GERMONDMatt Jacobsohn, national accounts manager for School Guard Glass, demonstrates March 15 the effectiveness of a type of glass pane his company makes that remained intact in the door despite being struck repeatedly. By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO With the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, the Florida Legislature made it clear that a school resource of cer must be assigned to every public elementary, middle and high school in the state to start the school year in August. Who is going to pay for those of cers, however, is not clear, which is what Police Chief Jeff Undestad told city commissioners March 20 during a meeting at City Hall. Undestad said the LPD has four SROs two at Largo High, one at Largo Middle and one at Gulf Coast Academy but would need to add nine more at six elementary schools and three charter schools at a cost of at least $365,000 to meet the new state standard. "We are doing everything that we can do to prepare for this funding or not," he said, noting that it's unknown how much the School Board will pay for the of cers. "We are going to make sure that we can live up to our obligation side of this thing and have people ready to go, trained and put in the schools by the beginning of the school year." Undestad said the city receives some funding for its four SROs, but it still has to pay about $112,000 annually already, which is why he thinks the city should seek full funding from the School Board. Because he is not sure if the department will be able to hire nine new officers in time, he said he is exploring the creation of a reserve of cer program comprised of retirees who could work part-time during the school calendar. The program would cost about $252,000, he added. "Their main focus and purpose would be to support and staff these schools," he said. He said he gauged the interest of some former of cers last week and received six responses. Of cials work to nd right balance on West Bay DriveStories by CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Those waiting for answers on what will become of a West Bay Drive improvement project are going to have to wait a while longer, according to of cials from Pinellas County and Forward Pinellas. Work on the project is planned to be done in conjunction with the county's resurfacing of the roadway later this year, but that is on hold until consensus can be made among the stakeholders, which includes residents, business owners and the cities of Largo and Belleair Bluffs. Whit Blanton, executive director of Forward Pinellas, the county planning agency, and Rahim Harji, assistant county administrator, updated Largo city commissioners March 13 during a work session on the Complete Streets pilot project that includes safety and accessibility improvements to a nearly 2-mile stretch of West Bay Drive from Clearwater-Largo Road to the Belleair Gov. Scott vetoes funding for Rosery Road projectLARGO Gov. Rick Scott ended any chance the city of Largo had of receiving $1 million in state funding for a Rosery Road reconstruction project when he vetoed it before signing off on the final budget March 16. Of the four Largo appropriations requests that legislators were considering, the project was the only one to make it to Scott's desk. But the project didn't make it into the $88.7 billion budget after getting cut among the $64 million in line items he vetoed. This $4.5 million project aims to provide pedestrian, bicycle, sidewalk, urban trail and stormwater infrastructure improvements to Rosery Road Northeast. The city increased its efforts this year to secure appropriations and amplify its voice on legislative issues by hiring an intergovernmental relations coordinator to assist city staff and the commission in being proactive and prepared on legislative matters.

Largo 3A Leader, March 22, 2018the Parkland tragedy, AIT decided to make a company introduction before the Largo facility is complete. New equipment, jobs in LargoThe new site will feature a materials manufacturing operation producing security products, electri ed windows and decorative architectural products. "It's going to be awesome. There is going to be millions of dollars of new equipment and lots of technology that's going to be here. It's going to be fun stuff. Lots of new jobs," said Jeff Besse, president of AIT. Pinellas County school officials, architects, media representatives and others attended the demonstration. Among the exhibits was a door; the door handle and lock had been shot 30 times with an AK-47 during testing. The glass was shot 30 times with the same AK-47. Similar doors were brought to the HP White testing laboratory near Baltimore, which provides independent analysis for impact-resistant products and defense mechanisms around the world. "A year ago, we brought eight of these doors back to White. Every door and glass combination lasted for at least seven minutes and in every case the test administrator said the test is over because the tester will not be able to get through," Kapiloff said. His company maintains the glass is tested to withstand entry from someone who is armed with anything from a hammer to a gun. Their purpose was to create a product that would be so hard to break through that the perpetrator would have to spend ve minutes or more trying to gain access. "The reason I picked ve minutes is because when I went to talk to my chief of police in my town, I said, How long is it going to take to get a police of cer from wherever they are to the elementary school?' He said, He will be over there in under five minutes.' So five minutes was my goal," Kapiloff said. Schools, architects showing interestJimmy Moore, AIT Group executive director, said on March 19 that company of cials were told by participating schools and architects that it was valuable information shared. Among the attendees at the demonstration was George Tharin, project manager for the architectural firm of Williamson Dacar Associates. He noted that Jacobsohn was able to penetrate inferior types of glass manufactured by other companies during the demonstrations. "We are very interested because a lot of the products we are using now are the products he just bashed through in four to ve whacks with a bat," Tharin said. "We think the potential for this glass to go into the educational market is fairly high. We think there will be a large response to using this product," he said. He said they are working with the Sarasota school district and will introduce products to of cials there soon. Referring to one type of product discussed, Tharin said "whatever that is, it's going to save a lot of lives." Photo by TOM GERMONDThis door and glass passed testing after being shot with the use of an AK-47."We've got to put a Band-Aid on this right now to identify how we can do a quick x to get us into the school year of August, and then we need to keep continuing looking at probably a long-term solution on how we keep managing this program," he said. City Manager Henry Schubert said the worst-case scenario is the city would have to take nine officers out of patrol or specialty units because the new law would take priority over other needs in the department. Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he didn't think nine part-time of cers would be enough and that a reserve program could become complicated if the union needs to get involved. "There are so many things to work out here," he said. "And, thank you state of Florida for dumping an unfunded mandate on us and for giving us a bill that's a knee-jerk reaction." Commissioner Jamie Robinson shared Holmes' ire with state legislators. "I'm really kind of perplexed as to where we go with it," he said. " This is a great unfunded mandate from the state Legislature, who, while they were trying to do something good, dropped it right in our lap."County tollPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri is also looking for answers. According to a memo Gualtieri sent to County Administrator Mark Woodard, at least an extra 201 employees will be needed, and the cost of all those positions will be approximately $20.1 million. The state's total contribution is $6.1 million and the Sheriff's Office and police departments add $1.6 million, leaving a $12.4 million gap. "The Sheriffs office has no funds to meet this statutory obligation and I am told by the police chiefs that the cities have no funds either," Gualtieri wrote in the March 19 letter. "We have been communicating closely with (Superintendent) Dr. Grego and he has conveyed to me that the School Board likewise does not have the available funds." Because the bill was unclear, Robinson asked City Attorney Alan Zimmett to research exactly who the city or School Board is obligated to pay for the new of cers. He also asked Undestad whether he thought it was realistic to have the new of cers and reserve program in place by July for the new school year. "I'm hopefully optimistic," Undestad said. "Honestly, if we don't nd any ne-print items that prohibit us from doing this, I think we can pull it off."In other news After receiving high praise in his annual performance review, city commissioners voted 6-0, with John Carroll absent, to give City Manager Henry Schubert a 3 percent pay increase, which is equal to the pay increase that is adopted for nonrepresented employees in the FY 2018 budget. Schubert received an overall score of 2.77 on a 3.0 scale from commissioners during his review, with 3.0 representing "Exceeds Expectations." He scored a 2.73 on last year's review. The annual salary for Schubert, who has worked for the city since 1980 and took over the post of city manager in 2016, will increase from $164,798 to $169,748. Including his expense allowance, auto allowance and retirement, Schubert's overall salary will increase from $191,174 to $196,718. Interim Largo Fire Rescue Chief Joseph Pennino announced that Lt. Joseph Ward was named the city's Firefighter of the Year and Public Educator Summer Mahr the Fire Service Professional of the Year. Nominations for Firefighter and Fire Service Professional of the Year were accepted from all personnel in the department, and a committee comprised of administrative and field personnel, as well as the 2016 Fire ghter and Fire Service professionals of the year, selected Ward and Mahr for the awards. Commissioners voted 5-1, with Holmes dissenting, to award $115,000 in Tree Fund funds to Bay Area Professional Lawn Care Inc. for the planting, establishment and two-year warranty of trees on several Largo streets. The award will allow for approximately 300 trees to be planted along city streets, including Cameo Way, Paradise Lane, Balboa Lane, Alexander Lane, Regina Drive North, Regina Drive West, Edmonton Drive, Vancouver Drive, Cove Court, Chesterfield Drive, Cambridge Drive, Canterbury Drive, Croydon Drive and Eaton Drive. Residents will be able to vote on the type of tree that is planted on their street and can opt out if they so choose. Chris George is editor of the Largo Leader. He can be reached at 727-397-5563, ext. 316, or by email at SROs, from page 1A By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Pinellas County Schools Superintendent Michael Grego says the budget approved by state legislators for education and student safety is not enough. Speaking during a School Board meeting March 13, Grego said while he is grateful for the increase in funding for school safety and for mental health counselors, the money budgeted for education just isn't enough to pay for real costs. He said staff had been lobbying for more than a decade to get an increase in school safety funding to stop the recurring $2.1 million deficit in spending for school resources of cers. He said the state's new school safety plan would jump the de cit to between $5.5 million and $6 million, even with the increase in money from the state. Pinellas is set to receive about $2.9 million in Safe Schools funding. Grego explained that schools get "buckets" of money to pay for specific necessities, such as safe schools, transportation and instructional materials. School districts also receive a base student allocation that pays for teacher's salaries, electricity, fuel, health care and other daily operational costs to keep a district running. "The hope of every superintendent in the state of Florida and the United States is that elected of cials understand those cost of living increases," he said. He said that because of the way money is distributed into categories to pay for specific expenses, the base student allocation is the only exible part of the budget available to pay for operational costs. This year the legislature approved only a 47-cent increase to the base student allocation, shifting dollars away to pay for Safe Schools. It was understandable that education funding would be tight during the Great Recession, he said. "But the recession is over and the state is in very good economic condition." He said the education budget that came out of the legislative session that ended March 11 was "disappointing." He said no one who supported funding for additional mental health counselors and SROs supported taking the money from the base student allocation. "It needed to be new money, not money just being shifted," he said. He pointed out that 47 cents multiplied by 100,000 students would mean only $47,000 in additional money, which would pay the salary of one teacher, minus bene ts. He said the District has learned it will need to pay an additional $1.8 million to the Florida Retirement System. Duke Energy has given a heads up to expect a 7.5 percent increase in electricity costs, which would be about $1.5 million. In addition, the District could see health care costs for employees go up between 4-6 percent. And there is the rising price of diesel fuel and other in ationary costs. Plus, he said the District's "hardworking teachers and employees really do deserve to continue to keep up with the in ationary measures they face." "The base student allocation is what we look to the elected of cials to have an understanding of and operating a school district," he said. He is meeting with superintendents around the state who will be talking to the governor's of ce about the issue.No guns for staffHe said Pinellas would not be taking any of the one-time allocation of $67 million for the Guardian Program that would pay for arming of non-teacher staff. "That is a wrong decision," Grego said. He said Pinellas would only use the "best and optimal" means of protecting students, using trained law enforcement of cers. "We made that explicitly clear and we will continue to repeat ourselves," he said. "That's the path we're going to go on." He said the legislation requires that the school superintendent and sheriff agree to use the Guardian Program or not to use it. Grego and Sheriff Bob Gualtieri agree. Pinellas will not participate in the Guardian Program. School Board members backed Grego, passing a motion 6-1 that only trained law enforcement of cers would be allowed to carry a gun on school property and that they do not support staff carrying guns. School Board member Joanne Lentino voted against the motion. Currently SROs are in use in all but elementary schools, which have only a few employees that aren't classroom teachers, Grego said. A firm cost estimate is not yet available on providing an additional 50 to 60 SROs for elementary schools, but Grego said a conservative estimate is $5.5 million to $6 million, plus start-up costs, additional cars, equipment, training and supervision. School Board Chairwoman Rene Flower said officials are hoping Gov. Rick Scott will see the impact of the education budget on the state's schools and make changes. She is concerned about having to "compromise the things we do for education that have improved academic performance." "Those that supported SROs never thought it would be one or the other," she said. Scott signed the scal year 20182019 budget March 16 with no changes to the amount allocated to education. The governor said it was the sixth straight year the state had invested "record funding" for K-12 and state universities.Grego: Budget not enoughDistrict will continue to use trained law enforcement of cers to protect students PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD GLASS, from page 1A P i c k u p Y o u r L e a v e s W i t h E a s e Pick-up Your Leaves With Ease!

A reconstruction project on the .7-mile segment of Trotter Road fro m Eighth Avenue Southwest to Hillsdale Avenue Southwest started March 5 and is expected to last 18 months.Avenue Southwest to Hillsdale Avenue Southwest on March 5 and is expected to continue improvement efforts for the next 18 months, according to City Engineer Jerald Woloszynski. The project will install landscaped medians, 11-foot travel lanes, 4-foot bike lanes, a 5-foot sidewalk on each side of the road and curb drainage inlets. It also will include textured pavement, traffic-calming features and gateway landscaping throughout the corridor. "It's going to be such a huge improvement for the neighborhoods," Mayor Woody Brown said. "The city's been talking about improving Trotter Road and improving that whole roadway, sidewalk, infrastructure along that road for probably 10 or 15 years, so the people who live near there are probably surprised to see it's actually being worked on now. I'm happy for them and I'm happy we're going to make some real good changes for the city." Those residents will have to remain patient, however, as Trotter Road will be closed to the general public for the entire duration of construction and fulland one-lane road closures will occur and will change on a day-to-day basis. Short-term interruptions to property access and utilities may also occur, according to city engineers. Detour signs have been placed along Eighth Avenue, Dryer Road, and south of Hillsdale Drive. Engineers said notifications of interruptions will be made whenever possible, and residents can visit to check out weekly updates.

Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, agreed to sponsor ve of those projects. Three of those requests portable radio replacements for the police department ($900,000), the Rosery Road Northeast project ($3.8 million) and a generator for employee shelter at Highland Recreation Complex ($250,000) survived the Senate's appropriations bill, but only the Rosery Road project made it into the House appropriations bill. Causeway Bridge. "The county has been developing a scope of work with an engineering rm to build on the concepts that we developed through our planning study," Blanton said, "and that will probably take about six months' effort to work at refining those concepts to make them fit the context of the surrounding area." Of the options, Largo commissioners favored the proposal that would reduce lane widths to 10 feet on the inner lanes and 11 feet on the outer lanes, add a 12-foot multimodal path (likely on the southside) and a larger landscaped separation between the roadway and the path. Other features include enhanced lighting, landscaped areas at the median and additional pedestrian crossings. Belleair Bluffs of cials, however, have not been in favor of narrowing the lane widths, citing traf c and safety concerns around some of the businesses in the city. Even municipalities where the road doesn't travel through are asking to weigh in on the project. Blanton has already met with officials from Belleair Beach and Belleair and will meet later this month with the Indian Rocks Beach commission, who is concerned how the project could affect traf c on Gulf Boulevard. "It just kind of reinforces that West Bay Drive is an important corridor that connects a lot of different communities and whether you're on it and it's within your jurisdiction or you're nearby, it still is an important artery to get to where you are needing to go," Blanton said. Blanton said finding the right balance is key, so engineers are going to look at making different changes to different parts of the road. "What we're really thinking about doing is looking at a nergrained segmentation of the corridor because there's some different characteristics when you get, say, west of Indian Rocks Road and then maybe to the east of 20th or 14th Street, and really looking at some differentiation of the treatments there, so it's not a one-size- ts-all approach," he said. In a Jan. 9 work session, Mayor Woody Brown urged Blanton and Forward Pinellas to also consider bolder options, such as eliminating lanes in portions of the road, if they thought it would be successful in making the roadway more pedestrian and business friendly. Harji said the county has taken that under consideration. "(The) one-size- ts-all approach may not work in every scenario for a multiple number of reasons, so we are kind of looking at the be bold' approach and seeing what works and what doesn't work," he said. "We did hear back that the city was willing to contribute some funding toward some of the improvements, where appropriate, and we'll de nitely factor that into the decision-making process." He said once the engineers' scope of work is nished, of cials from Largo, Belleair Bluffs and other communities would be invited to a workshop to once again weigh in on a more-detailed set of plans with different options for different areas. "We're not rushing this through," he said. "This has a big impact to both cities, so we have time. We have time to work things out." Chris George is editor of the Largo Leader.

Bruce William Joseph was released from the Pinellas County Jail on surety bond the same day. His bail was set at $50,300. According to arrest af davits, Joseph had a "romantic relationship" with a female, who had been a student at his wife's place of employment. The relationship began after she graduated high school. Police say he "continually" traveled to meet the victim at her college in North Carolina until the end of 2017 when the victim ended the relationship. According to police, during the relationship, the victim sent nude pictures of herself to Joseph. Joseph is accused of creating numerous ctitious social media sites in the victim's name and uploading pictures of her. He then used the sites to make contact with other men while pretending to be the victim. Police say Joseph gave directions to the victim's home and on two occasions, men showed up at her house expecting to have sex with her. The victim told police that she became "extremely afraid to leave her house and fears for her safety," according to the af davit. Police say she also told them she has become "emotionally distressed" due to the harassment. Police say Joseph was the only one who had the nude photos of the victim. They also say he sent the photos to numerous friends and family of the victim through fake social media site accounts. An IP address was obtained from one of the phone numbers and a fake snapchat account that was registered to the victim's home. Joseph's activities were discovered during a two-month investigation by Hubbard Investigations, a Clearwater-based business. Hubbard was contacted by the victim's mother. Hubbard's investigators say Joseph used more than 35 different phone numbers, numerous aliases, email addresses and screen names to pretend to be the victim.Motorcyclist dies after Walsingham Road crashLARGO A 65-year-old Largo man died at a local hospital from injuries suffered when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed about 6:30 p.m. March 16 on Walsingham Road.

Sunstar's communication center is only the 34th emergency dispatch center in the world to attain the status as an ACE for its use of the Medical Priority Dispatch System. By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Economic Development Director Mike Meidel had lots of positive news to share with Pinellas County Commissioners on March 13. With what Meidel described as a "17-member dream team," and a host of partners, the county's Economic Development department performs a host of services designed to retain and expand existing businesses, assist new business start-ups and attract new high-wage employers that preferably have markets outside the county, so they bring new money into the local economy. Economic Development also helps businesses gain access to capital, and the department works to improve the business climate by supporting low taxes and regulations, and it ensures availability of a trained workforce. In addition, the department identi es available sites, which isn't the easiest thing to do in a built-out county, and promotes those sites for potential development. Now, thanks in part to the work of the "dream team," the county is rebounding nicely from the recession, especially in the area of employment. Meidel said during the recession, April 2006 to December 2009, the county lost 60,000 jobs. Since that time, Pinellas has regained all 60,000 and added 40,000 more. "So, we have 100,000 more people working in the county than we did in 2009," he said. "That's pretty exciting, especially to the people who are employed now but weren't back then." In the past year, Economic Development has worked to bring in 19 corporate relocations and expansions throughout the county. Meidel said his department doesn't just work in unincorporated Pinellas; instead, it ignores city limits to find the best possible space for companies in need. Thanks to those relocations and expansions, 2,048 new jobs are expected in the county in the next three to ve years, and 1,812 jobs were retained. On top of that, more than $335.67 million in capital investment is projected, which translates into tax dollars. "That's an opportunity for us to fund every other program from public safety to health and human services," Meidel said. "And that's why we do what we do to create jobs to create that tax base to help bene t all the citizens and to create that new volume of money in the local economy." In addition, he said, for every $1 of county incentives, $161 comes back in direct and indirect wages, which equals a 161 percent return on investment. Meidel talked about some of the success stories and the work Economic Development did with Hillsborough County to try to entice Amazon to build its new headquarters in the area, which would have brought in 500,000 new jobs. He said while the local proposal didn't make Amazon's short list, the company did call with a thank you for the proposal. Commissioner Dave Eggers asked about plans for the next 10 years of Penny for Pinellas. Meidel said staff was looking toward the future and would use a consultant to find the best opportunities for housing and employers to work together in a mixed-use environment. He said they would be looking at barriers to construction and how to structure the program to decide what types of incentives would be attractive to developers. Staff also will begin putting together the 12-member committee that will be vetting projects. Eggers questioned Meidel's comment on residential development, saying he thought the goal was to look for industrial land for office or warehouse use to create more jobs and expand businesses. He asked if the plan was to look for land to accommodate both. Meidel said the Penny money $16.5 million for 10 years is for housing and economic development, so the committee will be looking at projects for both uses. "It's going to be a complex process. Each site has special criteria to look at," he said. Staff had been directed to balance the need for housing and economic development, so the committee that will be vetting projects will have experts on both subjects, he said. "It's the best way to leverage the limited amount of money we have," he said. "It sounds like a lot, but when you have $500,000 an acre for most of the properties, it doesn't go very far." Commission Chair Ken Welch asked about ownership of Tropicana Field and the 85 acres around it. Technically, the stadium is owned by the county; however, Meidel said if the Tampa Bay Rays leave, the stadium goes back to the city of St. Petersburg, which also owns the land surrounding it. Meidel's staff is working closely with the city's staff on plans for redevelopment of the site whether the Rays stay or if the team moves to its chosen site in Ybor City. Welch pointed out that it "wasn't a done deal yet," and said the Rays had until January to talk to St. Petersburg about their plans. Meidel said even if the Rays stay, initial plans put together by the city to redevelop the surrounding land provides opportunities for office space, research and housing. "It will be a tremendous project and an even better project if the Rays stay because it would have an entertainment component too," Meidel said. "Needless to say, there's going to be a lot of community conversation about that 85 acres and how it gets repurposed and where the bene ts go," Welch said.Meidel also talked about a population study done by a new employee, who is doing research for Economic Development. The study shows that 350,000 will be moving to the county over the next several years while 325,000 will be moving out. He described it as a "churn" and said it explained why local Realtors stay so busy. Meidel said based on information from the IRS, people moving in are wealthier than those leaving the county. In addition, college students are returning and bringing their friends, and people in their 50s empty nesters are moving into the county. Commissioner Charlie Justice expressed concern that having wealthier people moving in would "tip the scale," toward having people at the high end and low end ( nancially) and no one in the middle. "There's no shortage of challenges," Welch said. "As much as we need the economic base, we need affordable housing."Economic of cials tout successesDirector discusses Penny for Pinellas funding and future of Tropicana Field Photo courtesy of SUNSTAR PARAMEDICSSunstar Paramedics employees show off their plaques after being recognized by Pinellas County HCA Hospitals with its EMS All-Star award.

By LOGAN MOSBYTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Who can help combat food insecurity in Pinellas County? You can. And all you need are your cans of food to do it. Religious Community Services, a nonprofit organization that helps individuals and families facing hunger, homelessness and domestic violence, needs the community's help as it faces a depletion of canned goods in its food bank, which serves up to 2,400 families each month. Melvin Thomas, executive director of the RCS food bank, said a decrease in donations has led to food shortage. "We noticed we were running low a couple of weeks ago and it's only gotten worse," Thomas said. According to Thomas, RCS is in need of canned soup, canned fruit (no syrup), canned meats, including tuna, chicken and chili, dried and canned beans, as well as low-sugar and high ber cereals. RCS serves more than 70,000 residents each year 28 percent of those being children and 26 percent senior citizens and distributes more than 1 million pounds of food annually. "Any one of us, at any moment, can find ourselves food insecure," Thomas said, adding that only 3 percent of RCS's clients are homeless. "The majority are working men and women who live below the poverty line," he said. "Some people make only $10,000 a year. That doesn't always cut it for the people we help." Thomas said many of the food bank's clients face food insecurity after nancial crisis in the family, such as unexpected car or home repairs or funeral expenses. "It can happen to anyone," he said. "We are the richest nation in the world, but we are a food desert." The Centers for Disease Control defines food deserts as areas that lack access to affordable fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk, and other foods that make up the full range of a healthy diet. A review of five high-income countries published in a 2009 release of "Preventing Chronic Disease" suggested that food deserts do exist in the United States and a report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture does recognize that some Americans are limited in their abilities to nd and afford quality food. RCS is facing a particularly rough patch as donations have dwindled now that the holiday season is over. Thomas said the food bank typically enjoys an abundance of donations during Thanksgiving and Christmas, but those donations sharply decline once the New Year rolls around. But the need is year-round, especially during summer when public schools are not in session, Thomas said. "We cannot do this without our volunteers and without donations," he said, adding that while the food bank has seven paid staff members, it is aided by an army of 2,500 volunteers each year. In addition to providing food for those in need, the food bank also acts as a one-stop-shop for other programs offered by RCS. Needy individuals or families, once interviewed, may qualify for other services or programs, including Grace House, which helps individuals and families facing homelessness; the thrift store, which provides quality clothing and household goods; the affordable housing program that provides safe housing to those in need and the Haven of RCS, dedicated to the safety, security and support of women and children facing domestic abuse. "We're not just looking to give food," Thomas said. "We're looking to help in a holistic way." If you would like to make a canned goods donation to RCS, you can take your donation to 700 Druid Road, Clearwater, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monetary donations can be made at donate/.RCS Food Bank facing shortageNonpro t in need of supplies after dip in donations CLEARWATER Photos SUBMITTEDPhotos from the Facebook page of RCS in Clearwater show how depleted its food bank is right now.

By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersPinellas County reported a not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 3.7 percent in January, up from 3.3 percent reported in December. Still 2018 started out better than 2017, when the January unemployment rate was 4.4 percent. Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes Hernando, Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties, also reported an upward trend with a January rate of 3.9 percent compared to 3.4 percent in December, but still lower than January last year's rate of 4.6 percent. The state and United States rates followed suit with Florida reporting an unemployment rate of 4.1 percent in January, up from 3.7 percent the month before, but down from 4.8 percent in January 2017. The U.S. rate was 4.5 percent in January compared to 3.9 percent in December and 5.1 percent in January 2017. Gov. Rick Scott announced the news that more than 10,000 private sector jobs had been created in January. Scott said, in a press release, that nearly 1.5 million jobs have been created in the state since December 2010. He also said that the state's annual job growth rate of 1.9 percent is exceeding the national rate of 1.7 percent and has exceeded the nation for 69 of the past 70 months. The only month Florida fell behind was because of Hurricane Irma. Twenty-one of the state's 24 metro areas kicked off the new year with over-the-year job gains. Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford had the largest increase, 41,300 jobs, followed by Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater with 26,400 jobs and Jacksonville with 19,700 jobs. Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island, Sebring and Cape CoralFort Myers metro areas reported job losses. Statewide, the private-sector industry with the largest job increases was professional and business services with 36,000 new jobs, followed by leisure and hospitality with 32,400 jobs. Construction came in third with 26,000 new jobs. Pinellas continues to have the lowest unemployment rate of the counties in the local MSA. It tied with three other counties for the rank of No. 59 among the state's 67 counties. Hillsborough County with an unemployment rate of 3.8 percent tied with seven other counties for the rank of No. 51. Pasco County with an unemployment rate of 4.4 percent tied with eight other counties for the No. 24 rank and Hernando County with an unemployment rate of 5.2 percent, the highest in the local MSA, tied with Hardee County for a rank of No. 7. Citrus County ranked No. 1 with an unemployment rank of 6 percent, and St. Johns County ranked No. 67 with an unemployment rate of 3.3 percent, the lowest in the state. The Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater MSA tied with four others for the No. 15 rank among the state's 24 metro areas. Homosassa Springs MSA ranked No. 1 with an unemployment rate of 6 percent, and Crestview-Fort Walton Beach-Destin MSA ranked No. 24 with an unemployment rate of 3.6 percent.Unemployment rate on the rise to kick off year Briefcase PINELLAS COUNTY Photo SUBMITTEDMembers of the Bluffs Business Association meet for the March after hours mingle hosted by Janna Fine Consigner at 268 Indian Rocks Road N. in Belleair Bluffs.

10A Schools Leader, March 22, 2018 By TIFFANY RAZZANOTampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Joining thousands of students across the country March 14, hundreds of teens attending Seminole High School and Osceola Fundamental High School participated in a nationwide walkout bringing awareness to gun violence in the schools. The walkout was spurred by the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where 17 people were killed last month. In addition to protesting gun violence, many schools also honored the young lives lost that day with 17 minutes of silence. Both Seminole and Osceola high schools' administration supported the walkout, helping students to orchestrate the events. "We wanted to make sure they had an appropriate environment to go into for it," said Osceola Principal Michael Bohnet. Staff worked with students to organize the event, he added. "It was student led. We wanted to make sure it was the way they wanted it to be," he said. "We listened to them." Following 17 minutes of silence at 10 a.m. in the school's Rose Garden, an outdoor dining area adjacent to the cafeteria, 17 students each released one orange biodegradable balloon one of the OFHS school colors to represent those killed in the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland. OFHS student Madison Vogel, who is helping to organize the March 24 March for Our Lives in St. Petersburg, spoke about the shooting and gun violence following the balloon release, Bohnet said. Carol Sterling, a librarian at Seminole, said she was surprised that the majority of students participated in the walkout. "Initially, we expected some kids to want to stay in the library," she said. Most students participated, she said, adding that several Seminole staff members had connections to Stoneman Douglas. A SHS guidance counselor graduated from the Parkland school, she said, while another teacher at Seminole had been taught by Stoneman Douglas athletic director Chris Hixon, who was killed protecting students during the shooting. SHS did the walkout a bit differently from other schools, she added. Students walked out at 10:17 and then had 17 minutes of silence at that time in memory of the Parkland victims. Students hung banners around the school, even on the roof of the building, she said. Student musicians performed "Taps" and "Amazing Grace." Horn players stood at various points around the school and played in unison, she said. Principal Dr. Thomas Brittain spoke over the loudspeaker about gun violence, as well. "He said some stuff about being supportive and hoping nothing like this ever happens again," Sterling said. Brittain did not respond to requests for comment for this article. Via email, Lisa Wolf, public information officer for Pinellas County Schools, said that in preparation of the walkout at Seminole, staff involved student leaders in planning, "respected the right of students to participate or not," "designated an appropriate location for students choosing to participate and any other expectations necessary to ensure a safe and peaceful expression of support by students." She added that while students participating weren't disciplined, those participating in the protest could only participate "during non-instructional times and with principal's approval."Seminole, Osceola students protest gun violence with walkout Photo by JOSH JONESStudents at Osceola Fundamental High School participated in a nationwide walkout in protest of gun violence at schools March 14. 17 MINUTES OF SILENCE NotebookAnnual event in Largo to bene t Phoebe Jonchuck scholarship fundLARGO The fourth annual Phoebe Jonchuck Memorial Ride, Flower Drop & Scholarship Bene t Party is set for Sunday, March 25.

11A Leader, March 22, 2018 032218


12A Health & Fitness Leader, March 22, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersPinellas County is a little bit healthier, according to the ninth annual County Health Rankings released March 14 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The county's overall health rank is 26 this year compared to 28 in 2017. St. Johns County ranked No. 1, as the healthiest in the state, and Union County ranked 67, as the least healthy. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County put out a press release saying it "recognizes the value in measuring health outcomes and pointed out that the results of the County Health Rankings highlights many community factors that in uence health." "Fortunately, Pinellas County is rich in partnerships and residents who are committed to developing innovative ways to improve the health of our communities," said Dr. Ulyee Choe, director of DOHPinellas. "Thanks to these unique collaborations, we've made great strides in Pinellas; however, we need to continue to address areas of concern including health behaviors and the socioeconomic factors that have a profound effect on the health of our residents." Pinellas' ranking for health behaviors climbed to 23 compared to 26 in 2017. Behaviors include adult smoking, which was 17 percent both years; adult obesity, which was 26 percent in 2017 and 2018; and physical inactivity, at 22 percent in 2017 and 23 percent in 2018. Access to exercise opportunities was 100 percent in 2017 but only 96 percent this year. Twenty-one percent of Pinellas County residents were drinking in excess in 2018 compared to 20 percent last year; however, alcoholimpaired driving deaths dropped 1 percent from 29 percent in 2017 to 28 percent. The county's percentage is higher than the state average at 26 percent. Some of the social and economic factors measured include high school graduation rate. Pinellas' graduation rate was 78 percent both years. Sixty-four percent of residents had some college in 2017 and 65 percent this year. Only 4.4 percent were reportedly unemployed in 2018 compared to 4.9 percent last year. There was a slight improvement in the number of children living in poverty 20 percent in 2018 and 21 percent in 2017. The state average this year was 21 percent and the national rate was 20 percent. Forty-one percent of children live in single-parent households, a slight improvement over last year with 42 percent. The state average is 38 percent. Physical environment includes severe housing problems in which Pinellas had 19 percent in 2018 and 20 percent in 2017. Eighty percent of county residents drove alone to work both years and about a third have a long commute 33 percent in 2018 and 32 percent in 2017. Clinical care measures included the number of uninsured. Pinellas had 18 percent uninsured in 2017 and only 14 percent this year. The state average is 16 percent. Another bright spot in the information from the County Health Rankings report was the length of life enjoyed by residents of Pinellas. In 2017, the county ranked 29 for length of life and, in 2018, the measure had improved to a ranking of 23. DOH-Pinellas points out that while the rankings are a "snapshot of the health of counties across the country," they also "emphasize that health in not a singular effort but a combined work in progress across all community partners." The local health department works with governments, nonpro t organizations, health care facilities, business groups, schools, faithbased groups and others. The county's Community Health Improvement Plan includes ways to improve health and Pinellas DOH tracks progress of the plan's implementation. Reducing infant mortality and increasing behaviors that improve chronic disease health outcomes are two of the plan's initiatives. Of cials also are looking forward to expected improvements in children's health due to the County Commission's funding to help put a nurse in all public schools. "Funding nurses in schools will make a signi cant difference in the lives of children in Pinellas," said Commission Vice-Chair Karen Seel. "By working with our partners, we are ensuring better health for students now and in the future."

The first procedure at the hospital was in late January. "This rst-of-its-kind technology assists physicians in quickly identifying some of the most dif cult forms of heart arrhythmias, including atrial brillation," said Dr. Malay Gandhi in a press release. Gandhi is a cardiac electrophysiologist at Largo Medical Center. "In turn, the information I receive assists me in creating a personalized treatment plan for each patient." The ICM monitors a patient's heart rhythm and proactively transmits information via Bluetooth wireless technology to the device's mobile app which is what gives the physician remote access to a patient's condition. Patients can also track their own symptoms proactively through the app without having to contact their doctor. Once implanted, just under the skin in the chest during a quick, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure, the ICM can begin to monitor and detect a wide range of heart rhythms. "It's specialized cardiovascular services like this one that we offer that helps get our patients on the road to recovery quicker than ever before," said Anthony Degina, CEO at Largo Medical Center. An arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm that develops when disease or injury disrupts the heart's electrical signals, causing the heart to beat erratically. As the heart begins to beat too fast or too slow, changes in blood ow can expose patients to symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath or fainting. Cardiac electrophysiologists Dr. Ronald Walsh and Dr. Shalin Shah also perform this procedure at Largo Medical Center.Bayfront Health breaks ground on Pinellas Park emergency centerPINELLAS PARK Bayfront Health St. Petersburg recently hosted a groundbreaking ceremony marking the beginning of construction for the new Bayfront Health ER Pinellas Park. The freestanding emergency center will be located just off Gandy Boulevard on Grand Avenue, west of I-275 near exit 28. Once it is opened, the freestanding emergency center will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to serve patients who experience medical emergencies. Like any hospital emergency department, the new Bayfront Health ER Pinellas Park will be equipped to treat patients with illnesses and injuries that require a higher level of care than urgent care facilities offer. The 11,000-square-foot freestanding emergency department will have a separate ambulance entrance and eight private patient rooms including pediatrics. Services include radiology and CT capabilities as well as on-site lab services. If a higher level of care is required, patients can be transported quickly to the main Bayfront Health St. Petersburg campus or the facility of their choice.Caregivers Conference to be presented at SPC SeminoleSEMINOLE The fourth annual Caregivers Conference will be presented Friday, March 23, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, 9200 113th St. N., Seminole. Caregivers of family members suffering from dementia are generally overworked and underappreciated, on call 24-7 to confront a disease that often turns their loved ones into strangers. The conference, with the theme Finding Meaning in Caregiving, will feature an array of experts who will address the needs of those caregivers along with those of their affected family members. The conference is co-sponsored by the SPC Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, Maria's Adult Day Care Center, and AARP Florida. The event, which includes a buffet lunch, is free, but advance registration is required. To register, visit, or email maria@mariacares. com, or call 727-393-7711.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, March 22, 2018LETTERS We are a oat on a sea of suggestions about gun control. It's an important issue, one on which citizens should feel free to talk about regardless of our quali cations and experiences. Here are some of my own thoughts. I come from a gun-owning family. My father kept a rifle and a shotgun in the hall closet. Once every ve years or so he'd say to me and my brother, "Let's go rabbit hunting." So, we'd load up and go nd some woods. For half an hour we'd tramp through thickets and underbrush, trying not to scare off rabbits, squirrels and other wildlife. We usually failed to achieve that goal, although one time Dad spied a squirrel and shot at it, with no result except to scare the tar out of my brother and me. But I think it made Dad feel justi ed in owning a rearm. When I was 12 I bought a Red Ryder BB gun. I used it for target practice, not for hunting any live creature. Except for one day I took aim at a robin. I had no idea that I would kill it. But I did. I picked up the dead bird and let it rest in my hand. It was soft and beautiful, and had meant no harm to me. Years passed before I pulled another trigger. That day occurred when I was 17 and lying on my belly in a shooting range of the U.S. Navy boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois. For reasons never made clear, my entire recruit company was required to qualify at target-shooting with ri es. The instructors were U.S. Marines, young, tough, impatient and only a few years removed from aiming at live Japanese targets on Iwo Jima, Tarawa and other Paci c island resorts. I did not do well at hitting the bull's eye. Halfway through the drill, the Marine observer tapped me on the shoulder, said "Give me your !!#@! weapon. I'll qualify for you." Which he did. I was embarrassed but grateful. Thus ended my career as a sharp-shooter, hunter or gun-lover.Even so, I have pronounced opinions about rearms. I sometimes think their use should be restricted to persons aged 70 and older. The record shows that few oldsters are armed terrorists. Journalists should be allowed to carry guns to defend themselves against contentious readers. Gun-buyers should be required to recite the Second Amendment in at least three languages, and then write 500word essays on exactly what the phrase "well regulated Militia" means to them. The same test should apply to all members of the NRA. (Don't hold your breath until any of these suggestions become law.)Are cars, vans and pickup trucks driven at 60 mph into a crowd any less lethal than an assault ri e red from a hotel room into a rock concert crowd below? Who is more dangerous: a person who screams "Fire!" in the middle of a crowded movie hall, or a psychotic who sets a 3 a.m. re in the basement of a 10-story apartment house? My point: rearms are only one class of offensive weapons available to wrong-doers in America. The Pilgrims came to our land in 1620 seeking religious freedom. They had guns. They shot deer and other game to keep from starving. In the 398 years since then guns have been used for hundreds of reasons, good and bad, reasonable and wicked. In April 1775 a gathering of colonial farmers in Concord and Lexington repelled British soldiers sent from Boston to seize weapons and supplies. It can be said that without their muskets the Minutemen would have been powerless, and the American Revolution might never have started. Our Second Amendment was based on a simple, powerful idea: our citizenry must never again be subject to domination by an evil, unwanted force, either foreign or domestic. That idea has helped to sustain us through many trials. But today that Amendment is again threatened, not so much by persons who would repeal it, but by fanatic, fearful gun-worshippers who would gladly use the Second Amendment to defeat and silence their opponents. I believe these zealots are a minority of our country's gun owners. But they are rich, powerful, dedicated and entrenched. They are to be feared as much or perhaps even more than the twisted, armed, would-be assassins who lie in wait to assault innocents throughout our land. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ meets his match in DanielsWASHINGTON During a GOP debate in the 2016 election, Donald Trump repeated a frequent boast. "I don't settle cases. I don't do it because that's why I don't get sued very often, because I don't settle, unlike a lot of other people," he declared. Then, in the month leading up to the election, Trump, who had been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, also vowed to sue "all of these liars" as soon as the election was over. Stormy Daniels, a porn actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has put a lie to all that. In October 2016, days before the presidential election, Trump's longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about what her present attorney describes as "an intimate relationship" with Trump that began in the summer of 2006 and continued into the next year. Cohen says that he paid the money himself. Daniels has offered to pay back the $130,000 so that she can break the nondisclosure agreement. The CBS news program "60 Minutes" is set to air an interview with her on March 25. On Friday, her attorney, Michael Avenatti, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that Daniels had been threatened physically to keep her from talking, though he would not say by whom. Here is a man who knows how to tease a story. Or as Republican strategist and CNN contributor Alice Stewart put it, he knows how "to keep on the re and potentially keep it the eternal ame." By carefully parsing his words and doling out twists in the story, "he's almost trying to out-Trump Trump." There is some justice in Trump finding himself on the receiving end of Daniels' and Avenatti's determination to og this story for all it is worth presumably appreciably more than six gures. Daniels has put conservatives in a quandary. During the 2016 election, more than 10 women accused the GOP nominee of unwanted kissing and groping. But many of their stories were years, even decades, old. That is, they predated Trump's engagement in electoral politics. Besides, Trump denied his accusers' claims. Most of the accusers came forward just before the election, which made some supporters suspect the timing. In the United States, the burden is on the accuser, not the accused. Trump's base gave him a pass. In January, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told Politico that evangelicals were willing to give Trump a "mulligan" on the harassment accusations. Last week, Perkins told Christian Broadcasting Network News that his viewpoint had not changed. "To date, what has the president done?" Perkins said. "(Trump) has not engaged, to our knowledge, and I think we would know, in any of the behavior that he did in the past, prior to the election. What he has done is he's actually followed through on political promises." Problem: As Stewart put it, if Trump paid Daniels "$130,000 12 years ago for her services, that's between him and Melania. If he paid her $130,000 a month before the election, then we've got an issue." Some campaign ethicists argue that the $130,000 hush payment would constitute a violation of the $5,400 cap on political campaign donations per election cycle. But in 2012, a federal jury refused to convict former Sen. John Edwards of campaign- nance fraud after a big donor paid to cover up an affair Edwards had with a campaign videographer who gave birth to their child. At the time, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Melanie Sloan argued it was wrong to consider the payments to conceal Edwards' mistress to be campaign contributions. But even if the Cohen payments to the porn actress were not illegal campaign contributions, the documents reveal how reckless Trump's behavior and attitude are. The list of materials Daniels agreed to hand over still images, text messages prompt the reader to imagine the worst. Ever the entrepreneur, Daniels is soliciting contributions to her legal fund. "She's trying to raise money to pay for her legal fees," late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel mugged, adding, "So now you can give money to a porn star just like the president of the United States." So, Americans know: The president had a relationship with a porn actress, and his lawyer paid her off to cover it up because, like President Bill Clinton before him, Trump would not admit that he did what he did. "In my view, the president would do himself a favor and just come clean, tear off the Band-Aid and move on," Stewart opined. That is, Trump should man up. Like that's going to happen.

And without a kiss! Duke Energy CEO Lynn Good made $21.4 million last year, an increase of 55 percent from the year before and her highest ever as chief executive, according to the company's latest proxy ling. In a statement, Duke said it maintains competitive, market-based compensation for all of its jobs, including the CEO, to ensure that it attracts and keeps top talent. If CEOs expect to be paid over $20 million per year, what chance does the average person have? It's bad enough that the executives and shareholders are reaping huge pro ts, but we are expected to pick up the cost of Duke doing business. Remember the defunct nuclear facility in Crystal River that went of ine because of a botched DIY repair by Progress Energy? This resulted in a $1.7 billion bill for consumers. And let's not forget Hurricane Irma! The storm knocked out electricity to about 78 percent of Pinellas, more total customers than anywhere else in Duke's service area. Many of Duke's customers, who already pay some of the highest rates in the state, were shocked by the number of outages and how long it took in some areas for power to come back on. State lings show that the company cut its tree-trimming budget in the area by more than $2 million last year, from $9.9 million to $7.4 million. Would an extra $2 million for tree trimming have made a signi cant difference? Could CEO Lynn Good live with $2 million dollars less per year? She'd still have $19.4 million. And if that's not enough, Duke won approval to raise prices on about half its North Carolina customers by 6 percent, and wants to increase rates on the rest of its largest markets by 10 percent. Where does the greed end?Lil CromerBelleairMayor thanks votersEditor: I want to thank the 1,003 voters in Belleair who cast their ballots to reelect me as your mayor.

It has also reduced adult smoking from 21 percent in 2006 to less than 16 percent in 2015. Despite these gains, the Constitution Revision Commission aims to undercut Tobacco Free Florida with Proposal 94. The proposal seeks to remove language in our state's constitution protecting the ability of Tobacco Free Florida to counteract the mammoth marketing efforts of Big Tobacco. Although Proposal 94 would undoubtedly bene t the tobacco industry, its biggest impact would be on Florida's most impressionable residents ... our kids. By giving Big Tobacco unfettered access to target our kids without effective opposition, Proposal 94 will put more money into the pockets of Big Tobacco and put our children one step closer to the grave.

Outdoors 15A Leader, March 22, 2018March winds and below average temperatures continue to be the headline on the shing scene. Water temperatures have crawled back up to near 70 degrees. Not quite warm enough for consistent fishing just yet. However, with a big warm up coming this weekend we should see an improvement by next week. Inshore, trout and redfish are your best bet as snook have been inactive for the most part. Trout fishing has been good in Tampa Bay. Patchy grass bottom mixed with sand holes in 3to 5-feet of water will hold plenty of medium sized trout. Fish live shrimp under a oat or cast soft plastics in shrimp colors for good action. The larger trout have been hanging around mullet schools along the shallow flats. Try casting weedless jerk baits or if you can find live bait, small pin sh and or sardines have been working very well. Redfish also can be found hanging with the mullet schools. The big reds have been skittish for the most part so anglers will do best to cast out a few pin sh well away from the boat and wait for them to swim by and pick one up. Offshore fishing has been very tough with all the wind we've had. Those that have been able to get out have found red grouper holding in 80 feet of water and the action has been good with both live pin sh and or frozen sardines for bait. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at To get a sh photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.Fishing conditions expected to improve with warm weather Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Chances of close encounters between Florida manatees and boaters increase in the spring. For manatees, it is the season when they leave their winter refuges and travel along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and through inland waters. For boaters, it is a critical time to be on the lookout for manatees to avoid colliding with these large aquatic mammals. "Spring is a great time to go boating in Florida, but manatees are out there too. Please watch out for them," said Ron Mezich, who heads the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission manatee management program. From April 1 through Nov. 15, seasonal manatee zones require boaters to slow down in certain areas to prevent manatees from being struck by motorboats or personal watercrafts. FWC law enforcement officers are on patrol in state waters to remind boaters of the seasonal manatee speed zones and take enforcement actions when appropriate. Since manatees are dif cult to detect when underwater, operators of boats and personal watercrafts can help by: Wearing polarized sunglasses to help spot manatees. Looking for large circles on the water, also known as manatee footprints, indicating the presence of a manatee below. Looking for a snout sticking up out of the water. Following posted manatee zones while boating. Reporting an injured, distressed, sick or dead manatee to the FWC's Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or dialing #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone. FWC biologists, managers and law enforcement staff work closely with partners to evaluate current data and identify necessary actions to protect this iconic animal. Florida has invested over $2 million annually for manatee conservation, and the FWC works toward continued success for manatees in our state. Manatee zones and maps are available at Manatee, where you can select "Protection Zones" for links to county maps. Boaters can get tips from "A boater's guide to living with Florida Manatees." And if you want to see manatees in the wild or captivity, go to "Where are Florida's Manatees?"FWC: Boaters must watch out for manatees At McGough ParkMcGough Nature Park is at 11901 146th St. N. and includes the Narrows Environmental Education Center.

16A Beaches Leader, March 22, 2018 By WAYNE AYERSTBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH The city will likely host the Old Salt Fishing Tournament for at least the next ve years. The City Commission made that decision at a special meeting held March 16, unanimously agreeing with Commissioner Terry Lister "that a proposed fiveyear contract with the Old Salt Foundation be passed." Mayor Maggi Black opened the discussion by recommending only a six-month contract that would allow the upcoming King of the Beach Tournament on April 26-28 to be held. She said the city needs to get more data, then do an evaluation "and come to a better conclusion on how long the contract should be and what should be in it. Then we can look at a multiple year contract." At that time, Commissioner Nancy Oakley said she agreed with Black. But the majority of a standingroom-only crowd of residents and business owners disagreed. A number of them spoke passionately about the tournament's value to the city, and urged approval for at least a ve-year contract. Commissioner Terry Lister, who earlier learned of his narrow defeat for re-election, said he strongly wanted a new contract that would keep the Old Salt Tournament in Madeira Beach "for ve, 10, or even 20 years." City Manager Jonathan Evans said he had worked with of cials of the Old Salt Foundation to come up with a contract "that would ensure the Tournament stays in Madeira Beach." "This (contract) will solidify Madeira Beach as the home location of the shing tournament," Evans said. "We understand its economic value and the tourism that it generates to the region." Under the terms of the agreement, the Old Salt Foundation agrees to pay all the actual costs associated with the tournament, including fire, EMT, sanitation, etc. Evans said. "We will track the hours of who was actually out there, and bill appropriately," he said. He also said if the Foundation asks for any additional support during the event "we will track that and make sure the city does not incur any additional costs." In return, the city agrees to waive the recreation fees normally charged, which would amount to $9,000. The contract is cancellable by either the city or the Foundation by giving a year's notice. The foundation also will put money in escrow "to ensure the elds are protected and returned to the pristine condition in which they were before the event," Evans said. Evans spoke of the many bene ts the tournament brings to the city. "It's a great marketing tool to use in future promotions of the city," he said. Citizens and business owners spoke, strongly urging the city to approve the Old Salts contract for at least another ve years. Sue Patzschke said the tournament gives the city "hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising this is the cheapest advertising you could ever get." Missy Hahn, president of the Treasure Island and Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce, said the economic impact of the tournament is "so much." "If they leave the area, it will hurt all our businesses," she said. Incoming Commissioner Deby Weinstein said she agreed. The tournament has been in the city for a long time "and everybody wants to keep it here." But she also said the Foundation has not provided a profit and loss statement for a number of years. "It is extremely critical that we know where the money they give to charities goes, and how much they gave, and to make sure the monies are paid," Weinstein said. Old Salt Foundation President Tom Verdensky said the fishing tournament "is a win-win situation for the entire city." The event takes about 18 months to put together, he said, adding "a six-month contract would really tie our hands." "This is a well-written contract, and it's written by this man, Jonathan Evans, who is the new city manager. He brought this to us in all con dence knowing that this is the best deal for the city of Madeira Beach. It doesn't get any better than this," Lister said. Lister made the motion, seconded by Commissioner Nancy Hodges, that "the proposed fiveyear contract be passed." "I just want to say, I certainly want the Old Salts to stay. I was trying to make a compromise because I know other people feel differently. And if that's not a good compromise, it's not a good compromise," Black said. When the roll was called, the commission unanimously approved, giving Lister one last victory before leaving the commission in April.Public outcry leads to new deal for shing tournament TBN le photoMembers of the Overdraft shing team pose with the rst-place king sh, weighing in at 46.99 pounds, during the 24th annual Old Salt Fall King of the Beach king sh tournament Nov. 4 in Madeira Beach. By MARK SCHANTZTBN CorrespondentST. PETE BEACH A recommendation by the city's Planning Board to limit the number of special events a business or group could hold each year was sent back to the drawing board by city commissioners for being too vague and restrictive. Under a proposal presented to the City Commission at its regular meeting March 13, the city would only issue each location, business or group up to four special events permits a year, and permitted events would have to be held 45 days apart. In addition, special events would be limited to no more than three days in duration. As a safeguard, a business or group could request City Commission approval to hold additional special events or have an event that takes place longer than three days. City Manager Wayne Saunders said the planning department wanted to redefine the Special Events Permit to "re ect it as really being special. If you hold an event each week, it's not special. "We seem to be getting more and more requests for special events and found our code doesn't adequately address what a special event is and how often you can have one. So, this was an attempt to better define it," the city manager explained. "Having a special event four times a year, or every quarter, seemed like a better number. And, it does provide for the City Commission to permit additional events," he added. In addition, events cosponsored by the city would be exempt from the limitations recommended by planning officials. Mayor Al Johnson questioned; "Why do we want to do this? What are we trying to do with the four times a year limitation? What is the purpose?" Saunders answered "we looked at a lot of other special ordinances. We found a special event is not just somebody advertising they are going to have two-for-one next Thursday. A special event needs to be a special event, and they should not be a weekly thing going on." City co-sponsored events such as Sunday Market can be held more often, Saunders advised. Fireworks and bonfires would not be considered special events, because they are permitted through the re marshal. Commissioner Melinda Pletcher asked why the number of participants is not considered as part of the special event permit. She cited church functions and large house parties as examples. Pletcher noted the number of participants directly relates to the amount of support services needed, such as sheriff's deputies for security or portable restrooms. Saunders said the actual number of participants is dif cult to predict. "Numbers typically don't work for something like that and that's why we tried to de ne it the way we did," he said. "Why only four times a year, when there are lots of holidays when people want to have something," the mayor said. "If you are reducing it to four times a year, you may be tying someone's hands behind their back." "A lot of times special events have impacts on the surrounding area and whether you want to allow that four times a year or 20 times a year has to be addressed," Saunders said. Pletcher told staff she thinks "what you came up with is excellent. It is a good way to maintain and respect our current uses." However, Keith Overton, President of TradeWinds Resort on St. Pete Beach, told commissioners the resort is in special events business. "This scares me to hear this conversation. And it may be just as simple as we carve out the large hotel district. (The city) doesn't even see a hundred of the events we do a year. Many of them have nothing do to with our overnight quests. We sell weddings and parties and local events. We just host them and you don't even know about it," he said. TradeWinds has about 250 of these events a year. "The ones that are huge in nature we obviously come and get a special events permit," he added. "My concern is I think (the proposed ordinance) is very loosely de ned. He said he fears "if the city decides it wants to enforce the special events permitting process one day, all of a sudden our business implications are going to be signi cant." "Why would we care if someone does 50 special events a year? That's good for our community, and it's good for business," he told commissioners. "I don't know why you would want to limit it." Saunders said a hotel's use permit notes it holds special events, but the de nition could be made more speci c. Johnson and other commissioners recommended sending the ordinance back to staff to be re ned. "Sounds like we need some work on the de nition," the mayor said. The city manager agreed to take the ordinance off the table so staff can put together a more comprehensive and complete de nition. City rejects suggestion to restrict special events ST.

Seminole 17A Leader, March 22, 2018 SEMINOLE SEMINOLE By TIFFANY RAZZANOTampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE After taking 2017 off, the Seminole Community Library at St. Petersburg College's Seminole campus is bringing back its popular comic and maker convention Saturday, March 24, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library has partnered with the Gulf Coast Makers to revamp and rebrand the event as the Gulf Coast Maker & Comic Con, said Chad Mairn, who manages the Innovation Lab at the library. This free showcase celebrates the DIY inventive and artistic spirit by offering more than 100 exhibits, presentations and performances throughout the SPC campus. "It was kind of a risk to take a year off and a lot of people were disappointed, I think, but I think it's rebranded and maybe it will be better, I hope," he said. Though there's a focus on science, this year, there's something for everyone, Mairn added. "There's a lot to see and do," he said. Electrathon will offer electric car races, and there will be drone races as well. "That's going to be really cool," he said. Tesla will set up with their latest models of electric cars. There also will be heritage makers blacksmiths, weavers and woodworkers showing off their skills, make and take activities, pop-up concerts by students in SPC's music industry recording arts program, virtual reality demos, an inventors showcase and flash mobs. Gamers on the Edge will be back with their video game room. "Every year they've been here and they've done really great work," Mairn said. "That room has always been lled to capacity." Serenity Games also will host a board game room, which "was really popular last year," he said. Programming includes a science show hosted by Mike Davis, SPC's natural science chair based out of the Tarpon Springs campus. "He does these shows that has crazy smoke coming out of a petri dish or has a book catch on re," Mairn said. "He does these really engaging, fun science activities that kids can be really blown away by. It's really just fun science." The Really Live Literature Series will feature improv actors performing their versions of various book titles. Author Mark Muncy also will discuss Florida myths, monsters and legends featured in his book "Eerie Florida." Laura Spence, the Pinellas County Schools STEM coordinator, will lead a workshop on comic strip creation and STEM. Film and video game animation veteran Tony Mecca (X-Men Days of Future Past, Rio 2, Furious 7, Snow White and the Huntsman) will answer questions about his career. Meanwhile, in the Deconstruction Zone, attendees will get to take apart every day items to see how they work.

Councilors unanimously voted in favor of a bill banning these substances in the city upon its rst reading. A second reading of the bill will be held at a future council meeting. During the council's annual retreat Jan. 7, members discussed regulation of kratom and kava, and directed City Attorney Jay Daigneault to draft an ordinance to regulate or ban the substances. While researching the bill prior to drafting it, he determined a more comprehensive ordinance adding synthetic cannabinoid herbal incense and contraband bath salts to the list of substances to be banned was preferable. During the March 13 meeting, he said there is no research indicating "what the long-term and short-term effects [of kratom and kava] are." He added, "We just don't know." He said that though he can't say banning these substances "is a widespread trend in municipal government," some Florida municipalities, including the county of Sarasota, have. Councilor Chris Burke, who works for the Largo Police Department, requested that Daigneault specifically add spice, a mix of herbs and manmade materials, to the bill since it wouldn't fall under the ordinance the way it is designed. He added that spice "causes the most trouble for law enforcement." Daigneault said he would add spice to the bill ahead of its second reading and vote by the council. In other action items, the council also: Approved the revision of the procedures the council and city boards use in quasi-judicial proceedings. Authorized City Manager Ann Toney-Deal submit applications for the annual Florida Municipal Achievement Awards. The city will nominate the recreation department's Digital Den for the City Spirit Award and the Community Emergency Response Team for the Florida Citizenship Award.

Tickets start at $40. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. For Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, “comfortable” has never been a word associated with their brand of raucous, roots-tinged rock and bluesy reverie. The Jukes have more than 30 albums on their rsum, thousands of acclaimed live performances across the globe and a vibrant legacy of classic songs that have become “hits” to their large and famously-dedicated fan base. “With the Jukes, you’re out there every night leading this great rock ’n’ roll circus, giving it everything you’ve got,” said Southside Johnny Lyon in a press release promoting the show. The iconic Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes released “Soultime!” on Leroy Records in 2015. Their most recent studio release, “Soultime!” celebrates the transformative power of ’70s soul music and represents a return to – as Southside sings – “just letting the music take us away.” This release encapsulates everything that fans cherish about Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes including patterns of horns and rhythm plus each song painted with catchy choruses, top-notch string arrangements and gospel-charged vocals. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s emerging from the same New Jersey Shore music scene as now legendary contemporary and pal Bruce Springsteen. Southside’s first three albums – “I Don’t Want to Go Home,” “This Time It’s for Real” and “Hearts of Stone” – were produced by Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band. The albums featured songs written by Van Zandt and Springsteen. “I Don’t Want to Go Home” became Southside’s signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and soul-searching lyrics. Rolling Stone magazine voted “Hearts of Stone” among the top 100 albums of the 1970s and 1980s. With a decades-long successful career, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to deliver their soul-searing brand of raucous blues and R&B, with material mined from their many albums, featuring hits such as “I Don’t Want to Go Home,” “Love on the Wrong Side Of Town,” “The Fever,” “This Time It’s For Real,” “Talk to Me” and their definitive fun-time cover of “We’re Having A Party.” The Jukes’ legendary high-energy live performances always satisfy with their classic blend of Stax-influenced R&B and gritty, Stonesy rock ’n’ roll.

I’ve been making this type of art for three years.” According to Brown, each piece is designed, drawn and then cut out of metal according to her customers’ requests. “I create everything myself with my own hands out of car steel or aluminum, and in any color imaginable,” she explains. “The art I create is and has always been a passion of mine. I am in my third year at St. Petersburg College.” For information, visit Abcollisioncreations. com.

4B Entertainment Leader, March 22, 201815-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale. ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’Genre: Drama Cast: Jim Caviezel and James Faulkner Director: Andrew Hyatt Rated: PG-13 “Paul, Apostle of Christ,” is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not inch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much – oggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure – yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten … and if he has the strength to nish well. Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.‘Final Portrait’Genre: Biography Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clemence Poesy, Tony Shalhoub and Sylvie Testud Director: Stanley Tucci Rated: R In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. So, begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. “Final Portrait” is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a lm which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.‘I Kill Giants’Genre: Action, fantasy and adventure Cast: Zoe Saldana, Imogen Poots, Madison Wolfe and Sydney Wade Director: Anders Walter Not rated From the acclaimed graphic novel comes an epic adventure about a world beyond imagination. Teen Barbara Thorson (Madison Wolfe) is the only thing that stands between terrible giants and the destruction of her small town. But as she boldly confronts her fears in increasingly dangerous ways, her new school counselor (Zoe Saldana) leads her to question everything she’s always believed to be true. “I Kill Giants” is an intense, touching story about trust, courage and love.‘Isle of Dogs’Genre: Animation Cast: F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood Director: Wes Anderson Rated: PG-13 “Isle of Dogs” tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and ies to Trash Island in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire prefecture.‘Midnight Sun’Genre: Drama and romance Cast: Bella Thorne, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Quinn Shephard, Ken Tremblett, Suleka Mathew and Rob Riggle Director: Scott Speer Rated: PG-13 “Midnight Sun” is a romantic tearjerker about 17-year-old Katie Price (Bella Thorne), sheltered at home since childhood with a rare genetic condition, a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight. Having only her father Jack (Rob Riggle) for company, Katie’s world opens up after dark when she ventures outside to play her guitar. One night, her dreams come true when she’s noticed and asked out by her longtime crush Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger), whom she’s secretly watched from her bedroom window for years. As they embark on nightly summer excursions, Katie’s risk to sunlight grows and she’s presented with the gut-wrenching dilemma of whether she can live a normal life with her newfound soul mate.‘Unsane’Genre: Thriller and suspense Cast: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharaoh, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins and Amy Irving Director: Steven Soderbergh Rated: R Scarred from the trauma of being stalked, quick-witted Sawyer Valentini (Foy) has relocated from Boston to Pennsylvania for a new life. As her mother Angela (Irving) misses her back home and her ofce job is hardly an ideal employment opportunity, Sawyer remains on edge following her two years of being terrorized. To consult with a therapist, she goes for follow-up treatment at the Highland Creek Behavioral Center. Sawyer’s initial therapy session at the suburban complex run by clinician Ashley Brighterhouse (Mullins) progresses well – until she unwittingly signs herself in for voluntary 24-hour commitment. Unable to leave the premises, Sawyer nds herself in close quarters with previously committed hellion Violet (Temple) and savvy Nate (Pharoah), who is battling an opioid addiction. Sawyer expects to be out of Highland Creek within hours. But once she catches sight of a facility staffer, she is terri ed and then enraged because she is convinced that he is her stalker. But is it real or is it a product of her delusion? Photo courtesy of CTMGJames Faulkner, left, and Jim Caviezel star in “Paul, Apostle of Christ.” OPENING, from page 1B Loudon Wainwright III to perform at Murray TheatreWilliams to play State TheatreST. PETERSBURG – Genre-hopping multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Keller Williams will bring his signature solo looping show to the Tampa Bay area for one show Friday, March 30, 8 p.m., at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $21.50. Call 727895-3045 or visit Williams has built a reputation for his dynamic and unpredictable solo performances, where he creates samples on the y using a special looping effect live on stage, playing both original songs and select covers. Nothing is pre-recorded and no two shows are alike, making for a completely unique experience of sonically infused alt-folk and groovy electronica. With a career spanning more than 20 years, and just as many releases, the ever-evolving performer refuses to settle for the status quo. Williams’ unmatched creativity and ability to collaborate with a variety of artists have established a cult-like following among fans. He’s toured with bands like the String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Rhythm Devils and Umphrey’s McGee, as well as his various side projects. Williams recently announced via Billboard a new Tom Petty-inspired live project titled “Keller Williams’ PettyGrass,” which nds him performing select covers in a rollicking bluegrass style. In early 2017, Williams released “Sync,” the debut studio album from his acoustic dance project KWahtro. KWahtro infuses reggae, folk, jazz, afrobeat and dance rhythms into new, and innovative arrangements. Led by Williams on guitar and vocals, the collective includes bassist Danton Boller, guitarist and longtime Williams’ collaborator Gibb Droll and drummer Rodney Holmes. In addition to “Sync,” Williams also released “Raw,” a 10-song collection of solo acoustic material that simply showcases the artist and his instrument. These straightforward performances are not enhanced by any of his signature looping. Williams released “Freek,” his rst album, in 1994. He has since given each of his albums a single syllable title: “Buzz,” “Breathe,” “Loop,” “Laugh,” “Home,” “Dance,” “Stage,” “Grass,” “Dream,” “Twelve,” “Live” “Odd,” “Thief,” “Kids,” “Bass,” “Pick,” “Funk,” “Vape,” “Sync” and “Raw.” Each title serves as a concise summation of the concept guiding each project. For example, “Grass” is a bluegrass recording cut with the husband-wife duo The Keels. “Stage” is a live album and “Dream” is the realization of Williams’ wish to collaborate with some of his musical heroes. Each album showcases Williams’ comprehensive and diverse musical endeavors. His collaborative and solo albums re ect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Unbeholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end product is astounding and novel music that encompasses rock, jazz, funk and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet. Photo by C. TAYLOR CROTHERS/ALL EYES MEDIAKeller Williams performs March 30 at State Theatre in St. Petersburg. CLEARWATER – Grammy-Award winning folk-singer/songwriter Loudon Wainwright III will return to the all-new Murray Theatre for a performance Thursday, March 29, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $39.50. Call 727791-7400 or visit Wainwright came to fame when his novelty song “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright and Mose Allison, among others. In 2011, the songs were commemorated in a comprehensive ve-disc retrospective, “40 Odd Years.” In 2016, Wainwright released “Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet),” his 26th and most recent album of his long and illustrious career. It follows his acclaimed “Older Than My Old Man Now” album. Wainwright refers to that album as his “death n’ decay opus.” Prior to that, Wainwright released 2010’s Grammy-winning “High Wide & Handsome.” In his newest release, Wainwright broadens his scope with a 14-song, genre-bounding set dealing with varied subject matter including depression, drinking, senior citizenship, gun control, heartbreak, pet ownership and New York City’s arcane practice of alternate side-of-the-street parking. Wainwright co-wrote the soundtrack for Judd Apatow’s hit movie “Knocked Up.” He also composed topical songs for NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” and ABC’s “Nightline.” An accomplished actor, Wainwright has appeared in lms directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, Judd Apatow and Steven Soderbergh. Wainwright has also starred on television in “M*A*S*H” and “Undeclared.” Most recently, he appeared in Soderbergh’s lm “Mosaic.” This September, Wainwright will release a memoir titled “Liner Notes, On Parents & Children, Exes & Excess, Death & Decay, & a Few of My Other Favorite Things.” In the book, he continues to emphasize the personal. Wainwright details the family history his lyrics have referenced and the fractured relationships in the Wainwright family throughout generations – the alcoholism, the in delities, the competitiveness, as well as the closeness, the successes and the joy.
