Planning Manager Richard Perez gave the commission, acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, a status report on the project that would include landscape and hardscape improvements and be a signature gateway element for downtown Largo. “This project is intended to establish a sense of place, a landmark feature as one travels into or through the heart of our downtown,” Perez said, “and it’s intended to include the overall branding elements of the city that have recently been implemented.” He added that the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District project is beginning the design process in the current scal year at a cost of $65,000 and is funded for construction in scal year 2019 for $435,000. Mayor Woody Brown agreed that the .69-acre piece of property that was once a used car lot could use improvements, but said he was hesitant to spend so much money on it now when it might be better utilized later as a way to connect downtown to Central Park. “Right now, if you’re going from West Bay Drive, which is an easily walkable area, to Largo Central Park, you have to go through this zone from the railroad tracks to the park that’s uncomfortable to walk. So, I think this triangle might be the mechanism or the tool to get from there to the other side,” Brown said, referring to a feature such as an overpass. He said such a future project would make him hesitant to spend too much Officials hesitant about projectProject would create landmark feature for downtown, but city leaders say not so fast Just out for a walk (and ride) in the parkPhotos by LOGAN MOSBYChildren pet Thistle, a Scottish terrier, pulled by a remote control car April 14 during PawFest at Largo Central Park. Thistle, who was making the rounds collecting donations for the Humane Society, was one of scores of canines that ooded the park for the annual event sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Largo Mid-Pinellas Foundation Inc. and the city of Largo. The event, which served as a bene t for the Kiwanis Club and the Largo High School Key Club, gave attendees the opportunity to participate to check out contests, games, activities, lessons and demonstrations.

By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO – It hasn’t been a secret that the mayor and city commissioners are not fans of the city’s website, which gets more than 500,000 new and returning visitors each year. For several years, they’ve often lamented that it’s outdated and dif cult to navigate. On Thursday, the city’s Communications and Marketing staff hope those concerns are a thing of the past when the new Largo. com is launched. They say the new site is designed to be user-friendly and will allow visitors to do business online, view interactive maps of parks and services and to search easily from any device. It also will feature larger buttons, friendly imagery and an easy-touse events calendar. “Staff did, in my opinion, an excellent job listening to the input from the commission, from the general public, probably from staff and probably from each other, because it’s very, very easy to navigate,” Mayor Woody Brown said after getting a preview of the website earlier this month. “I found a couple of things in the rst 20 seconds that I’ve been looking for on our website for about seven years. So, it’s nice to just be able to nd stuff.” Officials said the $86,700 project is another element of the city’s renewed focus on sustainability and community pride through its updated Strategic Plan.

By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO – About five years ago, Erika Lafontaine, a communications and marketing specialist with the city of Largo, was working at Highland Recreation Complex when it occurred to her that the facility would be a great place to host a comic convention. She’s not the only one who thought so, because on Saturday, April 21, it’s game on at Highland Rec, which will host its rst gaming and comic convention, Largo Playcon.

Largo 3A Leader, April 19, 2018 Photo courtesy of McGOUGH NATURE PARKFriends of Largo Nature Parks volunteer Debbie Burns holds Sarge the bald eagle April 12 during a party celebrating the bird’s second anniversary with the George C. McGough Nature Park birds of prey program in Largo. Sarge was served special popsicles made of raw sh and chicken while the park team and visitors enjoyed patriotic cupcakes in her honor donated by Winn-Dixie. The grocer also made a $400 donation that will pay for Sarge’s sh for her next year at the park. The 7-year-old bald eagle was found injured in Kentucky and traveled to Tennessee and Missouri before landing in Largo two years ago. She is considered non-releasable because of a genetic condition causing her to shed her feathers differently than normal bald eagles.Saluting SargeLARGO – The David Haines Memorial FootGolf Tournament to benefit the Pinellas Chapter of Special Olympics Florida will be held Saturday, April 21, at the Largo Municipal Golf Course, 12500 Vonn Road, Largo.

Other sites connected to, such as PlayLargo. com, and, also have been revamped and given new looks to better suit the needs of visitors, of cials said. Other new features include a new app that will provide access to the most requested information on and the ability to sign up for push noti cations. Years in the makingThese are the first substantive changes to the city’s website since 2007, and communications of cials say they were made using plenty of feedback. The idea to overhaul the site was initiated in 2014, and that’s when staff started soliciting community input, including surveying the City Commission and public. That feedback included an online survey with more than 1,000 responses, two focus groups and a study of years of Community Conversations with residents and businesses. In 2016, Revize Software Systems, which also created the websites for the cities of St. Petersburg and Treasure Island, was awarded with an $86,700 contract to overhaul the site, which officials say includes all planning, design, development, support and hosting for the rst year. Annual costs for support, hosting and security will be $11,800. During the transition, officials say visitors may experience broken links, old cached webpages and other technical issues and ask visitors to email any feedback to Chris George is editor of the Largo Leader.

While the event mainly focuses on gaming, Lafontaine said there will be plenty more to enjoy, such as vendors for toys, collectibles, artwork, apparel, comic books and more. There also will be gaming competitions, a cosplay contest and a chance to meet local comic book artists, including Chuck Dixon, who helped create Bane in the Batman series. “There’s going to be artwork, merchandise, everything related to gaming, comics, sci-fi, anime – just everything and anything,” she said. For gamers interested in adding to their collection, M&M Video Games also will be collaborating with Tampa Bay Trade Day to bring the monthly collectors event to Highland, featuring numerous local collectors with rare and hard to nd games. Other entertainment will include a performance by Cartridge Carnage, a rock band that specializes in video-game inspired music, and several live-action role players (LARPers) who will be going to battle. Lafontaine said she’s not the only one excited about the inaugural event. “There’s a lot of people talking about it and calling,” she said. “I have people flying in from out of town to come in and be a part of the event, like cosplayers.” Event wristbands are on sale now and can be purchased at Highland Recreation, M&M Video Games locations or online at for $7 in advance or $10 at the door.

Brown said he thinks small improvements, such as a small gazebo, an enhanced bus shelter or new signage, would suf ce. “I think you can get a lot done for much less than what we have budgeted,” he said. Commissioner Jamie Robinson said he would still like to see some designs that consultants come up with, but he agrees with Brown that the project could be scaled down. “I know that I would de nitely like to see something on that corner as an entrance into downtown, but I don’t know that it necessarily has to be a huge project,” he said. He also pointed out that the Finance Advisory Board rejected the project during a meeting April 16 because its members said the money could be better used on infrastructure in the community redevelopment district. He also said investing too much money in this project might end up being a waste because connecting the park to downtown should be a future priority. “I don’t know how we would ever do that, but if we were to get to that point, it’d be a shame to have a real nice project on there to have to tear it down to put something else on there to try to connect them,” he said. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin said the project included elements to improve walkability, but a bigger project to connect downtown to the park would probably be much further down the road. “The idea of the connection to downtown with the elements of shade, better pedestrian connectivity, are a real driver for this project,” she said. “Should we go to a more long-term structural connection – an overpass or something of that sort – 10 to 15 years would be a reasonable time frame for something like that to come along.” In light of the concerns, however, she said she would advise the consultants to create options that require a more reasonable investment. If the project did continue, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he would like to bring a piece of the city’s past: the clock tower. “What I’d like to see there is a smaller version of what we have on all of our street signs,” he said, referring to the structure at the corner of East Bay Drive and Seminole Boulevard that was demolished in 2009. He said the city also could probably solicit private donations to help fund it. Robinson said the street signs are expected to change and have the city’s new logo on them, so a clock tower isn’t something the city should revisit. “We can probably just put that in the past and hopefully move away from that,” he said.In other newsCommissioners voted 6-0, with Donna Holck absent, to approve a resolution to establish a temporary moratorium on the permitting of halfway houses and rehabilitation facilities in the city for 120 days. Citing health and safety concerns of neighboring residents and businesses, the City Commission directed staff in June to amend the Comprehensive Development Code to address the compatibility of certain institutional land uses and clarify the development standards applicable to halfway houses and rehabilitation facilities. During the moratorium, applications for permitting will be accepted but delayed while code changes are pending. PLAYCON, from page 1A PROJECT, from page 1A

6A Police Leader, April 19, 2018 Police BeatSuspect in Pinellas Park murder shot and killed in PennsylvaniaPINELLAS PARK – A 45-year-old St. Petersburg man wanted in connection with the Feb. 12 murder of a Pinellas Park Civic Orchestra member was shot and killed April 13 by authorities in Washington County Pennsylvania. Siddeeq Ma’Shooq, aka Steven Brooks, is accused of shooting and killing Caroline Morton-Hicks, 59, of St. Petersburg. Police say Morton-Hicks had attended a practice session with the Pinellas Park Civic Orchestra that evening. After leaving, she was involved in “some sort of altercation” in the parking lot between City Hall and the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center. After the altercation, she ran from the parking lot and was shot in the street in 5100 block of 78th Avenue. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Pinellas Park police announced April 12 that the suspect in Morton-Hicks’ shooting had been located in Harvest, Alabama. U.S. Marshalls attempted to take Ma’Shooq into custody April 11, resulting in a hostage situation and standoff. Police say the elderly couple inside a home with the suspect was eventually released unharmed. Ma’Shooq then ed from the home, leading to a 48-hour manhunt. According to media reports, Pennsylvania State police troopers tried to stop Ma’Shooq for erratic driving on Interstate 79 in South Strabane April 12. Ma’Shooq was reportedly driving a stolen Alabama truck when he went the wrong way down a ramp leading to Interstate 70 and then crashing his vehicle into a bridge support. Ma’Shooq ran from the vehicle and scaled a fence before pulling out a gun. He refused orders to drop the gun and was shot by law enforcement.Clearwater re ghter charged with DUI, resisting arrest, cocaine possessionST. PETE BEACH – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 36-year-old Clearwater re ghter April 10 on charges of DUI, resisting arrest without violence and possession of cocaine. According to a press release, deputies were agged down by a concerned citizen about 6 p.m. in reference to an unresponsive motorist sitting behind the wheel of a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The Silverado truck was stopped at the traf c light in the eastbound turn lane on Boca Ciega Drive near the intersection of 75th Avenue in St. Pete Beach. Deputies made contact with the driver, identi ed as Andrew Leeth, who was unresponsive, slumped over in the driver seat of the pickup truck. The truck was in drive and there were no other occupants inside the vehicle. Deputies noted Leeth showed signs of impairment by having bloodshot, glassy, and watery eyes and a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his mouth. As a precaution for medical reasons, Leeth was transported to Palms of Pasadena Hospital by paramedics. While awaiting medical clearance, deputies continued their criminal investigation at the hospital. Leeth refused to submit a lawful sample of blood for the criminal investigation and removed his medical equipment in an attempt to leave the hospital. Deputies say they ordered Leeth to stop but he refused. Leeth ran toward the hospital exit when deputies utilized an electronic control weapon (TASER) to stop Leeth and regain compliance. Leeth was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without incident. Bail was set at $2,650. He was released on surety bond April 11.Two injured when Dunedin man crashes into outdoor tiki bar in Palm HarborPALM HARBOR – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 59-yearold Dunedin man April 13 after he crashed a vehicle into an outdoor tiki bar and injured two people during the annual Citrus Festival in downtown Palm Harbor. According to a press release, the crash occurred about 7:39 p.m. at the Thirsty Marlin Grill & Bar in Palm Harbor. Duane A. Wagner was charged with one count of felony DUI (third of subsequent offense) and one count of felony driving while license permanently revoked. He was booked into the county jail. Bail was set at $10,000. He was released on surety bond April 14. Deputies were called to the Thirsty Marlin in reference to a vehicle that had crashed into the building. Deputies say Beatrice Cahenzli, 55, of Palm Harbor had parked her 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the alleyway on the north side of the business, just west of 11th Street. Cahenzli was trying to leave and was having trouble backing her vehicle out when Wagner offered to move the car for her. Deputies say Wagner got into the vehicle, placed the vehicle in reverse and accelerated backward striking a power pole on the north side of the alleyway. Wagner then placed the vehicle in drive and accelerated southbound across the alleyway striking Cahenzli and throwing her up onto the hood of the vehicle, police said. Wagner continued accelerating and drove through a 6-foot wooden stockade fence on the north side of the Thirsty Marlin Grill & Bar. The vehicle crashed through the fence and struck four patrons who were located in the outside tiki bar area of the establishment. Paramedics responded to the scene and treated Cahenzli, as well as Jennifer Schutt, 71, of Clearwater. The three other patrons refused medical treatment at the scene.

County 7A Leader, April 19, 2018 PINELLAS COUNTY COMMISSION By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersTREASURE ISLAND – Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni released the news April 13. He is preparing to do battle once again against cancer. This time, the longtime commissioner will be fighting Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a rare type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. He will be undergoing a series of treatments while hospitalized at Mof tt Cancer Center in Tampa. “As a 10-year cancer survivor, I am very con dent in the excellent medical team at Mof tt,” Morroni said in a press release. “I appreciate the prayers of support and words of encouragement from my friends and constituents.” This will be the fourth time that Morroni will be ghting for his life. He rst learned he had non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the fall of 2008. He was 53. He spent six months undergoing chemotherapy and ve weeks of radiation before he could share the good news that the cancer was gone. Four years later, during a follow-up CAT scan done the second week in December, he found out the cancer had returned. Morroni underwent a stem cell transplant and “toxic” chemotherapy. That treatment was more dif cult and took longer. It also required a lengthy hospital stay. After the treatment, Morroni’s doctors had believed that the stem cell treatment would keep his cancer in check for a long time, the commissioner said in a Dec. 20, 2011 interview. “Hopefully until I’m at least 80,” he said. “And they’re finding out stuff about stem cell transplants all the time. It’s so exciting and promising. Maybe they’ll nd the cure in my lifetime.” However, it was not to be. County Communications sent out a news release July 5, 2016 announcing that Morroni would be undergoing treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center for a rare blood disorder known as secondary myelodysplastic syndrome, which was a secondary effect of the chemotherapy he received to treat non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2012. Morroni’s treatment in 2016 also included a stem cell transplant. Unlike his previous treatment, when the stem cells were his own, he received stem cells from a donor. Morroni’s new diagnosis of AML is a secondary effect of treatment he underwent for myelodysplastic syndrome in 2016. According to the American Cancer Society, myelodysplastic syndrome is a type of cancer in which damaged cells in the bone marrow make defective blood cells. The body destroys the defective cells, which can leave a person with low blood counts. In some cases, MDS can progress to leukemia. Morroni’s new cancer – Acute Myeloid Leukemia – develops from cells that would turn into white blood cells, but some cases of AML develop in other types of blood-forming cells, according to the ACS. AML starts in the bone marrow (the soft inner part of certain bones, where new blood cells are made), but in most cases it quickly moves into the blood. It can sometimes spread to other parts of the body including the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and testicles. “Acute” means that this leukemia can progress quickly if not treated, and would probably be fatal in a few months. The commissioner’s Facebook page quickly lled with posts of encouragement and support from his friends and constituents after Friday’s announcement. Pinellas County School Board Chairwoman Rene Flowers wrote, “Commissioner John Morroni, you are the example of strength, positivity and love. My prayers are that you are wrapped and embraced in healing thoughts, words and deed.” Rep. Chris Latvala wrote, “They don’t come tougher than John Morroni. He has been put through the ringer the last 10 years and is still standing. I love you my friend. Praying for you.” While he undergoes treatment, Morroni plans to continue to receive brie ngs on county business on a weekly basis. He has served the people of Pinellas representing District 6 since 2000. He is currently the chair of Forward Pinellas. He also served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1992-2000. The commissioner believes in the power of positive thinking. “A positive mental attitude is important. Having faith is even better,” he said in 2011. “I believe in God, which was a big help, along with having family and friends to check on me. I thank God I was able to get through the year.” Morroni and his wife, Eileen, live in Treasure Island.

8A Viewpoints Leader, April 19, 2018The Rick Scott who opened his campaign to unseat Bill Nelson in the U.S. Senate was the Rick Scott we have come to know in his two terms as Florida’s governor. He is still short on details but long about promising to roll up his sleeves and x what ails our government. He rails against career politicians, but seems to hope no one will notice that he will become one of those if he wins this election. He will have served eight years as governor, and then at least six more as a senator. Fourteen years sounds like a career to me. Then, there is this. As Scott Powers reported for Florida Politics from the scene of Scott’s campaign kickoff in Orlando, the governor said, “I didn’t fit in in Tallahassee because I didn’t play the insider game. I never intended to t into Tallahassee. And guess what? I’m not going to t into Washington either.” Well now, hold on just a second there, governor. Sure, during a campaign every candidate – especially those trying to unseat a three-term incumbent – shouts to the world that they are gonna go up there to that dysfunctional, horrible seat of government and shape it up. Yeah. Then they get there and learn exactly what they’ve gotten into. Former U.S. Rep. David Jolly knows about that. When he bucked the system in the House, he quickly became an outcast in his Republican Party. “If successful, Rick Scott will join the Senate as a junior member of a body dominated by more senior senators, and one in which the agenda is determined solely by a Majority Leader who expects and rewards loyalty and conformity,” Jolly told me Tuesday. “The difference between serving in the Legislature compared to serving as chief executive is that independence rarely proves effective.” As Sen. Marco Rubio noted at a rally in Iowa during his ill-fated presidential campaign, “… while as a senator I can help shape the agenda, only a president can set the agenda.” Rubio got so frustrated with the job that he was going to quit before he changed his mind and ran successfully for re-election. As governor, Scott was in a position of power. He also showed little interest in any part of the job that didn’t bring jobs to Florida. He basically was a spectator cutting ribbons at the latest WaWa while more skilled pols like House Speaker Richard Corcoran jammed through controversial changes to the way public education is funded. Scott was a no-show during the squabble over Florida’s health care. He didn’t seem interested when environmental regulations were being gutted. He didn’t have anything to say about the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting story how the state Department of Environmental Protection prohibited the use of the words “climate change” or “global warming.” As a senator, his obsession with job creation would be overshadowed by larger events. Scott also has never experienced the all-out assault he will receive during this campaign – and not just from inside Florida. This is a national race and Democrats will fight like the dickens to keep Nelson in the Senate. As governor, Scott enjoyed fortunate timing. The first time he ran, his simple message – “Let’s Get To Work” – resonated with recession-weary Floridians. He didn’t have much of a record to attack either. In his second campaign he could point to the state’s improving economy and jobs outlook. He also was up against a awed opponent in Charlie Crist. Not this time. Nelson, is a strong incumbent in a year where polls suggest it’s a good time to be a Democrat. We have learned it’s foolish to under-estimate Rick Scott. But he is not running for governor now, even though everything he said in his campaign rollout was stuff we’ve heard before. We’ll know soon enough if that’s the right strategy, or if he needs to get to work on something new. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. In life, there are a few types of excuses. One kind is the truth – what actually happened when things go wrong or you fall short of what was expected of you. The second variety of excuse is the lie – a completely fictitious statement that the teller hopes will be believed by at least a few listeners. An often-heard excuse is “The dog ate it.” That has been used by school children to explain why their homework is missing or the book report has disappeared. I’ve known a few dogs in my time, but I can’t remember meeting one that actually chewed up an entire essay or other document of value. However, I once knew a man named Rudy who was a management consultant for a prestigious Philadelphia rm who blamed his dog for mangling an important le that was due in a client’s of ce on Monday. Rudy had taken the le home on Friday, promising to nish it over the weekend. Unfortunately, Rudy used bourbon to lubricate his thinking skills, and the client’s le took a back seat. On Monday Rudy gave the paper-eating dog excuse to his boss, who later red him. (Rudy, not the dog.) According to the Washington Post, excuses for being late to work are pretty much the same throughout industry. A survey of more than a thousand human resource managers revealed that three excuses topped the list of employees coming in late. They were (1) traf c problems, (2) oversleeping, and (3) the weather. But the Post said a few highly creative excuses were offered. One worker said, “I was here, but I fell asleep in the parking lot.” Another employee (quite possibly a woman) said “My fake eyelashes were stuck together.” Quite likely the excuse that raised eyebrows the highest was “I had morning sickness.” This came from a male employee. When it comes to thinking about excuses, Americans may find themselves a little confused. Our culture emphasizes achievement and superiority: “We’re No. 1!” Millions of children are taught that they should grow up to be better than their parents, better educated, wealthier, socially higher than the Joneses, able to make greater contributions to society. Stuff like that. But more often than not, this doesn’t happen. Instead of serenely accepting a lessthan-marvelous place in life, the children (i.e., you, me and many other people) feel like failures. Then begins a guilt-laden search for excuses. It’s as if not becoming a top gun in life’s competition is much like committing some sort of crime. But in many or most of these cases no sin or crime has been identi ed. Instead, the determining factor is fate, another name for reality. It can be summed up in the popular philosophical expression “S--t happens!” Or, as Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, has observed, “Sometimes, life is unfair, and you have to suck it up and move on and not use it as an excuse.” Florence Nightingale said, “I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse.” George Washington said, “It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” All sorts of other persons have commented on why and how excuses are used or abused to explain how life works. All my life I’ve been fascinated by how useful God can be when an excuse or other explanation is needed for an event, good or bad. A tornado comes rolling into a village. Its savagery turns out to be a mix. A church is ripped apart. Its parishioners decide, with one voice, “It was God’s will.” But 60 yards away a house with a family of six persons is untouched by the tornado. How could that be? Again: “It was God’s will.” God, Allah and other forms of divine providence can be a most suitable substitute for an excuse. For a mental exercise in seeking the truth we might all ask ourselves, “How often have I resorted to fashioning a phony excuse to ease my conscience or explain a stupid action?” My response would be, “More often than I can justify, especially when I didn’t own a dog.” Novelist Kurt Vonnegut used to explain life this way: “So it goes.” And in most cases, he was probably right. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ Trump's turnover is hugeWASHINGTON, D.C. – Kathryn Dunn Tenpas has been keeping track of White House staff turnover since the late 1990s, but until President Donald Trump took the oath of of ce, the Brookings Institution senior fellow told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “no one’s ever cared about it.” Turnover in the Trump White House is, well, huge. The president loves to compare himself to his predecessor, and in this department, Trump exceeds President Barack Obama exponentially. In the first year of the Trump White House, turnover was more than triple that of Obama’s freshman year. Already Trump has burned through four communications directors – five if you count Sean Spicer twice for his stints doing double duty as press secretary/comms director – as well as hired three national security directors – Mike Flynn, H.R. McMaster and John Bolton – and two chiefs of staff. As a reality TV show host, Trump famously told contestants, “You’re red.” Tenpas uses a different phrase to capture what it’s like to be canned from the Oval Of ce – RUP for “resigned under pressure.” “It’s rarely one thing,” Tenpas explained. Indeed, it’s a standard question when a cabinet member or staffer leaves as to whether the individual quit or was red. For one thing, the process of being shown the door can take weeks, months even. It starts with a leak about the president’s dissatisfaction with an individual. Then comes the denials, and even presidential tweets damning said speculation as #fakenews. A week or so later, the gallows drop. The spectacle makes so much noise that it drowns out the damage done by staff churn. Generally, a president’s first staff represents the A-team – the best hires of a new executive – while their replacement picks – the B-team – usually lack their predecessors’ star power. “Either he doesn’t realize or he doesn’t care,” Tenpas said of Trump, but “it’s really undermining his agenda.” The confirmation process eats up a lot of political capital in the Senate. Consider CIA Chief Mike Pompeo, Trump’s pick to succeed unceremoniously dumped Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Pompeo is the exception to the replacement-as-B-lister scenario. To Washington, Tillerson always will be the remote corporate big shot who hollowed out Foggy Bottom. With his sterling credentials that include West Point and Harvard Law School, his background of military service, as a member of Congress and successful leader at Langley, Pompeo seems the perfect pick to bring talent back into the State Department while working with Trump to craft smart foreign policy. In January 2017, the Senate confirmed Pompeo’s nomination as CIA director by a vote of 66-32, with 14 Democrats crossing the aisle to support him and one Republican, Rand Paul of Kentucky, voting against him. And yet Pompeo’s con rmation as secretary of state is not in the bag – as it should be given his qualifications, acceptability to Democrats just a year ago, and the nation’s need to have a powerhouse at State’s helm as Syria and Pyongyang threaten American national security. After he fired Tillerson, Trump told reporters he felt “close to having the Cabinet and the other things I want.” Now it’s not completely clear he’ll get the top diplomat he wants. And if Pompeo does make it, the road to confirm his successor as CIA chief, Gina Haspel, will be that much rockier. “You shouldn’t have to be going to the well over and over again,” Tenpas noted. As of midMarch, according to the Brookings tracker, 49 percent of Trump’s top 65 people had left their positions due to an RUP, ring, resignation or promotion. Trump has irted with ring a number of Cabinet of cials, including Chief of Staff John F. Kelly. Worse, he’s let it be known he is thinking of not hiring a replacement. Trump has not hired a replacement for his last communications director, Hope Hicks. He seems to think he can be president and dabble in other jobs that used to be prestigious. “Who are the people who want these jobs now?” Tenpas asked. “How many people have walked out of there with their reputations intact?” Contact Debra J.

Schools 9A Leader, April 19, 2018 NotebookNew start times approved for next school yearLARGO – Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, many Pinellas County schools will have new start and dismissal times. Changes were made after an extensive review of start times by a district task force and input from families, students and employees. To move high school start times later, the task force reviewed various possibilities for adjusting times while focusing on safety and the ability of school buses to transport students on time. On April 10, the Pinellas County School Board approved the new start and dismissal times:  Elementary and middle schools: Most schools will see start and dismissal times adjusted by 10 minutes. This does not apply to all schools.  High schools: Most high schools will have a 7:20 a.m. start time and 1:50 p.m. dismissal. Four high schools (Boca Ciega, Dixie Hollins, Gibbs, and Lakewood) will start at 7:05 a.m. and dismiss at 1:50 p.m. to support the block schedule of eight periods.  Other sites: Centers and several sites for Educational Alternative Services will have adjusted times.

Curtis, age 90, of Belleair, Florida passed away April 9, 2018. Born in Hot Springs, Virginia, John moved to Miami, Florida in 1942 and graduated from Miami Senior High School. He served at the close of WWII as a Navy weatherman stationed in Guam and onboard the aircraft carrier USS Antietam (CV-36). Upon completion of his Navy service, he attended the University of Miami and then embarked on a 45-year career as a marine sales representative working throughout Florida. John was a talented woodworker, avid sailor, golfer, prolific storyteller and accomplished salesman. In his youth he learned to play golf in Hot Springs, also caddying sometimes for pro golfers such as Sam Snead at the Homestead Hotel. When he no longer played in his nal years, you could often nd him walking stretches of the Belleair Golf Course behind his home with his beloved dog, Maxine. His lifelong passion was sailing, building his rst sailboat at the age of 17, and participating in his younger years in many sailboat races off the coast of Miami and the Florida Keys. John was a wonderful and loyal son, husband, stepfather, and steadfast friend who will be dearly missed. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 37 years, Jean Curtis, who worked side by side with him in his later years in their North Indian Rocks Road antique and collectibles store, "Jean's Locker" where they made many friends and enjoyed their life in Belleair. He is survived by his daughter, Diedre Lyne of Casselberry, FL and granddaughters, Kasey Lyne of Orlando, FL, Audra Peoples of Tallahassee, FL and two great-grandchildren. Many thanks to his dear friends, Norb, Dennis, Raymond and Beverly who provided him special help these past few years.

10A Outdoors Leader, April 19, 2018More often than not the better wind conditions occur later in the day this time of year, opposite of summertime shing in which you often see the lightest winds around sunup. Planning your trips based on capturing that magic hour just before sundown versus just after sunup will give you the chance for a big day. Offshore, kingfish, Spanish mackerel and cobia are all available under the right conditions right now. Plenty of bait has moved close to shore in between fronts. Finding the clean water with good bird activity will place you in the right depth. Troll silver spoons behind number 2 planers for solid action. Cobia have shown up in the area and those fishing around artificial structures in 35 to 50 feet of water have been catching them. A live pin sh free-lined wile bottom fishing gives you a good shot at one as does slow trolling the structures with live thread ns. Inshore, the snook action has been excellent a few days after the front moves through. Live baiting mangrove shorelines throughout Tampa Bay is as good as it gets right now. Places such as Pinellas Point and Weedon Island have plenty of small to medium-sized snook willing to attack a frisky sardine. Look for the schools of bait up in the shallows in the morning where they can be chummed up with Tropical sh food. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail. com.

Headliner Beats Antique is known for their ability to blend many different kinds of music to create a vibrant, distinctive sound that is impossible to designate as one single genre. Their music incorporates everything from Middle Eastern grooves, Balkan wedding music, amenco and French Gypsy jazz to hip-hop, dub reggae and electronica. Sidecar Tommy, David Satori and Zoe Jakes make up Beats Antique. Based in Oakland, California, the band released “Shadowbox,” their 10th album, in 2016 to commemorate their 10th year as a band. “Shadowbox” was mostly recorded at the band’s studio in Oakland, though Beats Antique also recorded in Russia and Israel. “We were lucky to record in both Moscow and Tel Aviv, because we had shows there and wanted to connect with the local artists,” the band explains in a biography provided by Pivotal Agency. “We had amazing sessions in both locations. In Moscow we recorded on the outskirts of the city in a wild industrial complex. We ended up going through strange corridors into this plush bamboooored Hare Krishna owned recording studio with state-of-the-art gear.” “Shadowbox” is retrospective in nature, with Beats Antique pulling from all of their previous work as an homage to the rst 10 years of their career. “We feel like ‘Shadowbox’ touches on all our styles from down-temp Middle Eastern in uences to cinematic orchestral arrangements,” the band said. An enthusiastic touring band, the new album was followed by a new tour. Since Beats Antique is all about the concept, “Shadowbox” – the album and the idea – offered another opportunity for them to get the creative juices owing for the live shows. The band has employed shadows, light, Indonesian shadow puppetry, custom-created lanterns, dance, storytelling, crowd participation and more to create an unforgettable visual spectacle for their audience. For more than two decades, members of the band Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hiphop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. On “Crush,” their fourth studio album, drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, keyboardist Neal Evans, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet players Eric Bloom and Rashawn Ross deepen that sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show. On their EP “Shapeshifter I: Construct,” Tauk tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz. Revealing both their re ned musicality and unbridled creativity, the Oyster Bay, New York-bred rock-fusion four-piece features guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist Alric “A.C.” Carter, and drummer Isaac Teel. Voodoo Visionary hails from the musical mecca of Atlanta. Their improvisational funk dance music delicately balances a tight, grooving rhythm section with diverse and dexterous keys and masterful guitar licks to create a sound the group calls psychofunk. In uenced by a wide array of artists such as Parliament Funkadelic, the Meters, the Grateful Dead, and Talking Heads, Voodoo Visionary features Dennis Dowd on keyboards, Jimmy Lynch on bass, Scott MacDonald on vocals, Mac Schmitz on drums, and Mike Wilson on guitar.BrainquilityWorld fusion, electronic music group Beats Antique to headline Brainquility Music Fest in Safety Harbor Photo courtesy of PIVOTAL AGENCYBeats Antique headlines Brainquility Music Fest April 21 in Safety Harbor.

10B Entertainment Leader, April 19, 2018TAMPA – Kenny Chesney will bring his Trip Around the Sun tour to the Tampa Bay area for one performance on Saturday, April 21, 5 p.m., at Raymond James Stadium, 4201 N. Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. Tickets start at $40. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster outlets. Call 800-745-3000 or visit Last October, “Live from No Shoes Nation,” the 30-song live recording celebrating the heart and soul of millions of fans who come out each summer to see Chesney live, hit the streets. Chesney’s now ready to get back to his fans. The eight-time ACM and CMA Entertainer of the Year is about to hit the road for the stadium portion of his 2018 Trip Around the Sun tour. “Listening to all those tapes of all those shows led to ‘Live in No Shoes Nation,’” Chesney said in a press release announcing the tour. “And playing those two nights in Foxboro this year made me really want to get out there with all the people who live this music. We have so much fun, so much life, so many memories – all tied up in these shows and these songs. I am ready to get out there and kick into another summer where we can all celebrate how lucky we are to love life and be able to come together.” Kicking off April 21 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, the tour will gather up all that energy and all the new songs from “The Big Revival” and “Cosmic Hallelujah,” mix them with everyone’s favorites, add in a few wild cards and hit the road like only Chesney can. Joining him for this year’s trip around the sun will be Academy of Country Music Male Vocalist and Country Music Association and ACM Single of the Year winner Thomas Rhett (“Die a Happy Man,” “It Goes Like This,” “Craving You”), good time band Old Dominion (“Break Up with Him,” “Song for Another Time”) and newcomer Brandon Lay. “There’s nothing like a stadium full of people coming together to remind you what life’s about,” Chesney said. “The energy, the moments, the fun. Every single one of these artists who’re coming out with us for Trip Around the Sun live their lives the exact same way: they work hard, they appreciate what they’re given and they love music every bit as much as they love life. I, personally, can’t wait to see this show hit the road.” For Chesney, there is nowhere he feels more alive than when he’s onstage. His stadium shows are a rite of summer for many, and the songwriter/superstar from East Tennessee has built his career by striving to give people a night that de nes their summer. If there’s anything that drives the only country act on Billboard’s Top Touring Acts of the Past 25 Years, it’s the pursuit of unfettered joy. It’s what pushes him to make his shows what has become a rite of summer for so many, and create albums that still tell those truths about how people live – as opposed to ashcards for Saturday night antics. “Songs are powerful,” Chesney said. “They can change your energy, get inside your sadness, open up your joy in crazy ways. I grew up saved by songs – and I only want to make my records create that same kind of place for other people. Whether you’re in the midst of it, remembering or looking for it, I want people to hear this music and go ‘Yeah,’ not because they recognize themselves, but because of how it feels.”Chesney to launch tour at Raymond James Stadium Photo by JILL TRUNNELL/ESSENTIAL BROADCAST MEDIAKenny Chesney takes the stage April 21 at Raymond James Stadium.Yanni to play REHCLEARWATER – Yanni will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his iconic “Live at the Acropolis” live album and film with a concert Tuesday, April 25, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.

Yanni has been awarded more than 40 platinum and gold albums worldwide and has sold more than 25 million albums around the world. His most recent albums have seen chart-topping success. “Sensuous Chill,” Yanni’s 18th album and most recent recording, was released in 2016. Unlike other recent albums which feature a full orchestra and acoustic instrumentation, “Sensuous Chill” is built around synthesizers, programmed rhythms and electronic sounds, evocative of his early-1980s albums. A deluxe package of completely remastered 5.1 sound and high definition video of “Live at the Acropolis” will be released in 2018 to commemorate this anniversary. “Live at the Acropolis” was originally released in 1994 and is the rst ever live album and concert video from the maestro. Recorded at the Herodes Atticus Theatre in Athens with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra from London, the concert took a year and a half to complete. The album was mixed and produced by Yanni in his home studio and was made into a TV special that aired on PBS. “Live at the Acropolis” became an incredible success and is the second bestselling music video of all time.
