So, when she checked her messages, she was thrilled to hear the real reason for the call. "She said library of the year, and I was so elated," she said. McPhee had just been informed that the Largo Library had been named the association's 2018 Library of the Year, and she couldn't wait to share the news. She saved the message and played it for everyone at the managers' meeting she was attending at City Hall. "It never got old no matter how many times I played it for people," she said. "So that was pretty special." Nancy Brockman, chairwoman of the FLA Awards committee, said the library was chosen because of its focus on community building, outreach and partnership, which resulted in greater relevancy in the programs and services offered. "The exceptional level of professional service provided by this library helped them rise to the top of the bank of A storybook ending for libraryLargo Library named the best in state By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Before the state legislative session kicked off in January, the Largo mayor, commissioners and city staff said they were going to make it a priority to give the city a voice in Tallahassee. Mission accomplished, according to the Florida League of Cities, which recently recognized Mayor Woody Brown, Commissioner John Carroll, Commissioner Jamie Robinson and Intergovernmental Relations Coordinator Cheryl Reed with a 2018 Home Rule Hero Award. "This year was particularly challenging as there was a real effort in Tallahassee to eliminate local self-government," Brown said in a press release. "I am proud of our team and our colleagues from municipalities across Florida that joined together to preserve the role of our diverse cities in this state."Photos by JIM LAYFIELDHighland Recreation Complex was transformed into a world of fantasy April 21 for the inaugural Largo Playcon.

Largo 3A Leader, April 26, 2018History should help shape futureOn April 17, the City Commission heard a report about a proposed $500,000 downtown plaza project to enhance the triangular property across the street from Largo Central Park on the southwest corner of West Bay Drive and Seminole Boulevard. After reading about the proposal, Charlie Harper, vice president of the Largo Area Historical Society and a former city commissioner, thinks there is something else the commission should consider before deciding on the property: history. Here's what he had to say in a letter to the Leader: That property, typically nowadays called the "triangle," was once a used car dealership from the early 1960s until sometime in the 1970s. Far more important, however, to the history of that piece of land is the very historic role it played in the development of Largo, because it lies next to the McKay property along Indian Rocks Road where Largo got its start 175 years ago. When the Orange Belt Railroad came to Largo in 1888, the depot became the loading spot for the booming citrus industry and the cattle industry the two businesses that "were" Largo in the early days. The three railroad depots were all located in that triangle area, starting in 1888, 1913 and the nal 1927 station. That piece of property is probably the second most historic area of Largo. I only wish more people knew the history of our city. From 1900 until after World War I, more citrus (mostly grapefruit) was shipped out of the Largo Train Depot than any other spot in Florida. Citrus and cattle were the economic engines that built most of what would become central Pinellas County. This was long before anyone paid any attention to the beaches. Unlike most cities, we have no historic signs in Largo, but if we did, the Indian Rocks Road area and the "triangle" certainly should have one. This piece of property is indeed the prime historic land in the early 1900 part of Largo. I thank Mayor Brown for asking for more time in deciding the future use of that historic property. Photo courtesy of the LARGO AREA HISTORICAL SOCIETYA 1914 photo shows an early car in Largo picking up folks from the 1913 Railroad Depot. The Depot sat on the west part of the triangle. The road the car is on is Railroad Avenue. The tree in the upper right background is where the early Largo Town Commission met under in the hot days of summer in Largo. City BriefsDowntown neighborhood cleanup slated for April 28LARGO The city of Largo will team up with residents and volunteers to beautify downtown and an adjacent neighborhood on Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., for the first neighborhood cleanup of the year.

See LARGO, page 5A HOME RULE, from page 1A LIBRARY, from page 1A They were four of 89 officials honored with the award in the state, and Largo was the sole city with more than two who received the award. "That's pretty good representation from the city of Largo," Robinson said April 17 during a City Commission meeting. "I'm proud of everything that we've all done this year." Brown, Carroll, Robinson and Reed earned the award for their efforts to advance the League's legislative agenda and help protect the home rule powers of Florida's cities during the 2018 legislative session. This is the second consecutive year Robinson earned the award. "These dedicated municipal officials are some of the Florida League of Cities' biggest advocates for municipal issues," Florida League of Cities President Gil Ziffer said in a press release. "Their efforts during the 2018 legislative session were extraordinary. The League and its legislative team are proud to recognize and thank them for their service." Home rule is the ability for a city to establish its own form of government and enact ordinances, codes, plans and resolutions with minimal state interference. The Home Rule Hero Award recipients are local government officials both elected and nonelected who consistently responded to the League's request to reach out to members of the Legislature and help give a local perspective to an issue. Four Largo officials were honored, but Carroll said the award is the result of the efforts from many others. "We get the privilege of being spokespeople for the rest of the folks on the commission here because it truly is a team effort," Carroll said April 17. "We meet, we discuss, we come up with positions and points and counterpoints for the League of Cities, and it's only because this commission works so hard." Chris George is editor of the Largo Leader. He can be reached at 727397-5563, ext. 316, or by email at cgeorge@TBNweekly.com. worthy nominations," Brockman wrote in an email to the Leader, adding that the Library of the Year category featured the largest pool of nominations.Fewer funds, more heartMcPhee said library systems with bigger budgets and staff typically win the award, so to be counted among them as an industry leader is a high honor. For instance, last year's winner, Jacksonville Public Library, has a budget of $32.7 million and a staff of about 500 while Largo has a budget of about $3.5 million with a staff of just over 40. "They've got a lot more resources and potential," McPhee said. "It's kind of difficult for us in the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative because we share a lot and we have boundaries, so how do you make yourself unique and how do you set expectations as high as you can when you are part of a cooperative?" Aside from servicing over 500,000 visitors in 2017 a 7.9 percent increase from the previous year and hosting over 1,400 programs an 18 percent increase she said the library was able to set itself apart by focusing on community building and outreach. McPhee trained more than 30 city employees in the Harwood Method of Community Conversations, and library staff completed Year 4 of leading and note-taking for library and citywide community conversations, becoming part of a team that gathered citizen input for the revision of the city's Strategic Plan. In 2017, the library also dedicated staff to establish a community outreach services department with four full-time staff members providing English Language Learning and to begin the design of a bookmobile and mobile library service. Their efforts, in combination with the Greater Largo Library Foundation, have helped raise over $400,000 toward the $600,000 goal for the bookmobile, which is expected to roll out in the fall. "It gives you such clout in the community," McPhee said. "I know the foundation was really excited to hear about it to go out and tell people that this is the library you are supporting, because people like to back a winner. If they see you doing great things, it looks like you're a good investment." She is right, according to Robin Katchuk, president of the Greater Largo Library Foundation. "The foundation board is absolutely thrilled," she said. "Everyone works so diligently and so passionately for the library. "The programs, the innovations, we just keep stepping it up, so I think the award is just thrilling. What we'd like to do is win it again next year."First time’s the charmMcPhee had been reluctant to submit a nomination in the past because she wanted to make sure the time was right. This year, staff even created an entire website to showcase their efforts for the association. "I really wanted to lay the groundwork," she said. "I wanted us to be the best that we could be when we submitted. I didn't want it to just be, oh, we think we're great. It had to have that coming from the heart. So, I kept telling my staff we're not ready, we're not ready." It turned out, they were ready this year, because the library took home the award on its rst try. "It just seemed like the perfect timing that all the components came together, and sometimes you just kind of know," she said. "You feel it." McPhee will pick up the award at a FLA conference May 23 in Orlando, and the library staff will probably have a party afterward. But she said the honor has only emboldened them to be better. "We've done some programs over the years that did get a good reaction so I'm just hoping that we can continue," she said. "This is great and we've done some wonderful things but it's been a great motivator, too. We want to do more now. It's not like we want to rest on our laurels. No, we want to keep deserving that honor and keep striving to do more."

Many people postpone dealing with hearing problems, but early use of hearing aids can potentially deter the onset of dementia, in addition to enhancing our overall quality of life. The effect of hearing loss on memory is signi cant degraded hearing may force the brain to devote too much energy to processing sound.

6A Police Leader, April 26, 2018 SHOOTING, from page 1A Police BeatTeen facing arson, burglary chargesSEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives arrested a 19-year-old Seminole man about 10 p.m. April 18 in connection with a fire and residential burglary in unincorporated Seminole. Austin Michael Lang was charged with three counts of burglary, possession of a controlled substance and arson in the rst degree. Bail was set at $77,000. According to detectives with the Arson & Auto Theft Unit, deputies were called to a private residence on Flame Vine Avenue about 2:40 p.m. April 17 in reference to a suspicious fire. Seminole Fire Rescue responded and extinguished a small re in the laundry room, which later was determined to have been set intentionally. The homeowner, Lance Klipper, 52, told deputies when he returned home from work he discovered the re and burglary to his home. After the re was extinguished, the residence appeared ransacked and it was apparent the family dog "Bailey" was missing along with other valuables. Detectives say the dog was later found by detectives uninjured and was in the home when the re was started. Detectives say the re caused minor property damage and no one was injured. Detectives obtained surveillance video of a man who they say is the suspect in the arson investigation. The suspect is seen on surveillance video knocking on the front door then goes around to the rear of the home. Approximately an hour later, the suspect is seen on video walking down the driveway with suitcases and bags. Through various investigative techniques, detectives were able to identify and locate Lang near his home on Gerbera Avenue in Seminole. Investigators say Lang later admitted to the burglary and setting the re. Detectives also recovered stolen items inside Lang's home from the burglary and from other burglaries committed in the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Larry McLean of the Arson & Auto Theft Unit at 727-5826399 or email lmclean@pcsonet.com.Tampa man accused of exposing himself at Oldsmar shopping centerOLDSMAR Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives arrested a 25-year-old Tampa man April 16 for exposing himself to women at an Oldsmar shopping center. According to detectives, deputies were called to the Marshall's Store, 3146 Tampa Road in Oldsmar, on Dec. 8, 2017, for a report of a man in the store exposing himself to women. Detectives say the suspect was reportedly following a female customer around the store, exposing his penis and masturbating. When confronted by store employees the man left the store. Detectives obtained surveillance video of the incident and through various investigative techniques identi ed the suspect, Antonio Alexander Fernandez. Detectives searched for Fernandez but they were unable to locate him. On Feb. 22, deputies were called to Bealls, 3140 Tampa Road in Oldsmar, for a report of a man exposing himself in the store. Detectives say a man tting Fernandez's description was reportedly following two female customers and was seen by a store employee exposing himself. The employee confronted the man and he ed. Detectives located Fernandez at a residence in Oldsmar on April 16. When detectives interviewed Fernandez, he reportedly admitted to the allegations. Detectives arrested Fernandez on two warrants for failure to appear exposure of sexual organs. One of the warrants was related to an exposure of sexual organs charge that was investigated by the Largo Police Department on Feb. 7. Fernandez was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bail was set at $6,026. He was released on surety bond at 4:07 a.m. April 17.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTERsurrounding the contact between Steiner, a member of Largo PD's Problem Oriented Policing Unit, and the suspect. Steiner had been on duty in an unmarked patrol vehicle, which was parked on the northwest side of Clearwater-Largo Road and Wyatt Street. Steiner was watching for possible narcotics activity at a nearby gas station. Steiner noticed a black Nissan Altima, driving southbound on Clearwater-Largo Road, with dark tint on the windows. The officer suspected that the tint was illegal, so he decided to follow the car. When he checked the tag, he learned that it was a rental. Steiner noti ed Of cer Prentice Ables III that he was following the Altima but was not sure if he had probable cause to stop it for a tint violation. While following the car, Steiner saw it switching lanes and slowing down, which added to his suspicion that it might be involved in illegal activity. The Altima pulled into the Wawa about 5:56 p.m. Steiner saw the vehicle stop at gas pump #9. Steiner parked his black Dodge Charger on the north side of the Altima about one and one-half to two car lengths away. The patrol car was not blocking the Altima's path. Phillip then got out of his vehicle and stood next to the gas pump with the driver's door open. Steiner walked around the rear of the Altima and made contact. Of cer Ables parked his vehicle at gas pump #10, which was on the opposite side of gas pump #9. According to McCabe's report, as Steiner approached the rear of the Altima, Phillip asked Steiner what he was stopping him for to which Steiner replied he wasn't stopping him for anything. Steiner asked Phillip if the car belonged to him and was told it was a rental. Phillip then complied with Steiner's request to see the rental documentation. Steiner noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from Phillip and the car when he rst approached. He believed he had probable cause to search Phillip and the vehicle. Steiner asked Phillip why the car smelled like marijuana to which Phillip reportedly said it didn't and said Steiner could search the car. Steiner told Phillip he was going to search him rst. At that time, Steiner said he saw Phillip grab two large bulges located in the front pockets of his gym shorts. Steiner was only a few feet away from Phillip, who had his back to the open driver's door in a very tight space between the gas pump and the side of the vehicle. Ables, who had remained in his car, approached the Altima from the rear, and heard Steiner tell Phillip he was going to search him. Ables also testi ed that he smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. According to Ables, Phillip took a step toward the of cers and then quickly turned and got into the driver's seat of the Altima. The engine was still running. When Steiner realized that Phillip was going to flee and he was trapped between the gas pump and open door, he jumped halfway into the vehicle and struggled with Phillip over the gear shifter. Phillip was able to shift into reverse. Steiner repeatedly yelled at Phillip to put the vehicle into park. He also tried to put his foot on the brake to keep the car from leaving. Ables also yelled commands and pushed Steiner into the vehicle as it started to move in reverse. Ables then had to move away because he feared he would be struck by the open door and be run over. As the vehicle was about to accelerate in reverse, Steiner held onto the open door and pulled out his rearm. The of cer feared for his life as the vehicle began to rapidly move in reverse, according to the Attorney General's report. Steiner then shot his firearm four times. One bullet entered the upper portion of Phillip's left side back. Another ended in the mid portion of the left side back. The third entered the upper portion of the left arm and the fourth grazed the upper portion of the left leg. Steiner fell out of the vehicle as it rounded gas pumps #9 and #10 in reverse. The driver's door passed over his body. The vehicle then continued in reverse in a wide arc and ultimately struck the guard at pump #2, on the opposite side of the island. The car then traveled between the guards at pumps #3 and #4 before striking a red Mercedes parked at the business. At that point, Steiner was able to open the driver's door and put the vehicle in park. Steiner removed Phillip from the vehicle and began CPR. Fire Rescue personnel responded and transported Phillip to Largo Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Steiner was treated at Morton Plant Hospital for abrasions, a knee sprain and other minor injuries suffered when he fell to the ground. McCabe reported that about 5.8 grams of marijuana were located in Phillip's front shorts pocket, as well as 6.6 grams of cocaine, 12.2 grams of powdered cocaine and hydromorphine pills. His other pocket contained $1,632 in cash. How to contribute All press releases are published on a space available basis. They are subject to editing for grammar, length and general newspaper style.

8A County Leader, April 26, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Creative Pinellas Executive Director Barbara St. Clair visited the April 18 Tourist Development Council meeting to give a brie ng on what her organization is doing to promote cultural tourism in the county. Creative Pinellas serves as the Local Arts Agency and receives funding from license plates sales, Pinellas County government and Visit St. Pete-Clearwater. St. Clair said Creative Pinellas seeks out the county's "arts and cultural treasures," serving as an "arts chamber" to promote those assets to visitors to the destination. She talked about some of the methods used for promotion, including the website creativepinellas.org. She said work was progressing on a project funded with BP settlement money, which should be ready by 2019. The project is a traveling art exhibit, which will be set up at different locations in Pinellas. Next year, the group also will be working on a countywide mural project, among other things.Impact of sportsThe TDC also heard a report on sports and events and the impact on room nights for local hoteliers. Sarah Kirchberg, Senior Business Development manager for Sports and Events, said college softball was one of the county's largest markets along with amateur sports, including a growing international market. The county's sports facilities, owned by municipalities and private entities, attract several different types of athletic events with the top three last year being softball, baseball and swimming. Eighty events were funded through Visit St. Pete-Clearwater's incentive funding last year and 105 are set to receiving money this scal year. Other sporting events that use county facilities include lacrosse, multi-sports events, martial arts and paddling. Kirchberg said there also was a renewed interest in sailing, windsur ng and soccer. Last year, Sports and Events had a goal to produce 120,000130,000 room nights through the events. The goal was surpassed at 170,000 room nights. Through the first quarter of the current fiscal year, 60,000 room nights have been attributed to sports and events. Visit St. Pete-Clearwater President and CEO David Downing presented the tourism economics snapshot for February. The numbers are up, he said, and possibly on track to set a new record in bed tax collections for March. In February, room nights sold was up 6.3 percent over last year, and the average daily rate was 4.2 percent higher, boosting the revenue per available room up 5.4 percent. Year-to-day (January and February), local hoteliers are reporting a 2.4 percent increase in rooms sold with a daily average rate up 1.1 percent; however, the revenue per available room is down 1.2 percent. Bed tax collections are up 14.09 percent at nearly $6 million compared to almost $5.25 million in February 2017. For the fiscal year, which began in October, bed tax collections are up 10.19 percent. Leroy Bridges, Media & Interactive director, updated the TDC on a partnership with Travelzoo to boost fall bookings for local hotels. It was a rst-time program, using bed tax money to pay the commission and marketing to Travelzoo. Bridges said there was no cost to the hotels, other than providing the deal. He said the target had been to increase hotel bookings in the fall, which is traditionally a slow time for the tourism industry. He said the campaign started a bit later than needed for the early months August and September but a healthy return on investment was evident in November and December. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at sporter@TBNweekly.com.Art, mural projects among group’s efforts TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL County BriefsCounty hosting free tire collection event in effort to reduce mosquito populationPinellas County is hosting a free tire collection event for residents on Saturday, May 12, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., at four locations throughout the county. Pinellas County Mosquito Control, Solid Waste, Public Works and Parks and Conservation Resources are hosting this countywide event in a continued effort to reduce the spread of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne illnesses. Tires are a common breeding location for mosquitoes. They can hold water, which provides mosquitoes with the perfect location to lay eggs and grow larvae. "The tire collection event provides a convenient way for the public to help us reduce the mosquito population by getting rid of habitats they use to breed," said Brian Lawton, Pinellas County vegetation management and mosquito control manager. "Reducing the population of adult mosquitoes also reduces the threat from mosquito-transmitted diseases such as Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika." Tires will be collected at the following locations: Largo: Eagle Lake Park, 1800 Keene Road Lealman: Lealman Community Center, 5175 45th St. N. Palm Harbor: John Chesnut Sr. Park, 2200 East Lake Road S. Seminole: Walsingham Park, 12615 102nd Ave. N. This event is for Pinellas County residents only; proof of identi cation is required. No business drop-offs will be accepted. County residents will be able to bring up to 12 tires of 36 inches in diameter or less per customer. They will be accepted with or without rims. The collected tires will be processed through Pinellas County Solid Waste's Waste-to-Energy facility, which generates enough electricity to power approximately 40,000 homes a day. Additionally, metal from the tires will be recovered from the remaining ash and recycled. For more information, residents may call Pinellas County Mosquito Control at 727-464-7503 or visit www.pinellascounty.org/resident/ mosquito_control.htm.Tax Collector’s Of ce working to go greenThe Pinellas County Tax Collector's Of ce mailed over 407,000 property tax bills last year. This time around, you can help the of ce go green by signing up to receive your bill by email. In addition to being environmentally friendly, going green with emailed property tax bills also can help you save some green. Emailed bills provide easy access to Tax Collector's online payment system and early payment discounts. There is no extra charge to pay property taxes online by eCheck. If you aren't sure whether you're ready to go completely paperless, you also can sign up online to receive both an emailed bill and a paper bill in the mail. To sign up for email billing, visit taxcollect.com and click on the "Property Tax" tab. 2018 Property tax bills will be mailed and emailed by Nov. 1.County seeks feedback with survey In an ongoing effort to exceed customer expectations, residents can now provide feedback on recent contact with Pinellas County Government through a brief online survey. The Voice of the Customer Survey only takes a few minutes and can be accessed at www.pinellascounty.org/voice. Citizens will be asked to select which department they have recently had contact with before answering questions. Pinellas County provides a range of essential services every day in the community, such as water utilities, mosquito control, animal services, park maintenance, roadway improvements and much more. Survey feedback is anonymous, but responses may be used to recognize outstanding performance by county employees or highlight needed improvements.Residents invited to give input on planPinellas County residents are invited to provide input as the county revises its Comprehensive Plan. Citizens can learn about the new Plan Pinellas guiding principles and offer their feedback through an online survey and a series of open houses. The rst of three open houses will be held at the St. Petersburg College Tarpon Springs Campus, 600 E. Klosterman Road, on Thursday, April 26, between 6:30 and 9 p.m. Families are welcome to attend. In addition to the open houses, residents are asked to participate in an online survey to express their thoughts about the county's future. For more information about this project, visit planpinellas.org. The Plan Pinellas update process will address the changing conditions and needs in the county, with a resulting format that is user-friendly, not only for county departments but for the public at-large. The introductory "Vision Element" of the Comprehensive Plan will de ne the county's future and describe the guiding principles that will focus the plan's policies moving forward.Survey seeks input from Lealman residentsPinellas County is conducting an online survey to gather feedback from Lealman residents regarding the transportation improvements they would like to see most in their community. Input from citizens will help county planners as they develop the Linking Lealman mobility plan. The plan seeks to improve how everyone in Lealman moves: by car, bicycle, bus, mobility device and on foot. Improvements for all travel modes are being considering, including sidewalks, bicycle lanes, turning lanes, medians, crosswalks, multiuse paths, street connections, signals, lighting, bicycle racks, benches and signs. The Linking Lealman plan will identify challenges and opportunities and look at alternative improvements. The goal is to develop a plan that can be implemented with county capital improvement funds. The online survey will be active until April 30 at 11:59 p.m. and can be accessed at www.peakdemocracy.com/portals/255/Issue_6031.

Outdoors 9A Leader, April 26, 2018As spring transitions to summer, we are fortunate enough to be along the migratory route of one of the world's greatest game sh, the tarpon. Anglers travel from great distances to experience the thrill of pursuing tarpon. Tarpon are showing up at all of the passes along our coast, especially at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and the 90-foot hole at Egmont. Fast-moving afternoon outgoing tides have had the crabs ushing out of the bays and into the passes. Freeline your crab so it drifts naturally with the tide as you drift out of the pass. Soon the tarpon will be traveling along area beaches. Look for them as they roll and mill in pods of 10 to 30 sh or more. Cast live thread ns, pin sh or pilchards under a oat so they stay in the strike zone. Kingfish have been thick at times around the shipping channel. Anglers shing around markers 9 and 10 have been wearing out the schoolie sized sh for a couple of weeks now. Slow trolling live blue runners or speed trolling number 2 planers with a kingspoon trailing will both produce sh. Spanish mackerel can be found just offshore all along our coastline. Finding the clean water has been the key in locating the bait schools and in turn the mackerel. Look for bird activity to be a sure sign of bait rich water. Areas such as the Blind's Pass Drop, Redington and Sand Key hardbottom are consistent spots for finding both Spanish mackerel and king sh this time of year. Morning incoming tides this weekend will create excellent opportunities for targeting snook, redfish and trout. Live bait or arti cial will produce when the tide is moving. Many of the snook have made their way out to open water grass ats where they can be found mixed in with the mullet schools. Live sardines, aka pilchards, are migrating toward the shallows and all ats predators are responding to them. Anglers can chum the sardines to the boat along the outer edges of the grass ats where cast netting enough for a days shing has been fairly easy. Arti cial lure enthusiasts should Cast top-water plugs around sunrise and again at sunset for explosive action from all three species. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

It’s nesting season for Florida’s waterbirds, and state wildlife of cials note that shorebirds and seabirds build shallow nests of sand and shells on beaches, and eggs and chicks are dif cult to see. Wading birds, who build nests on islands, can abandon their nests if humans approach too closely. Enjoy the outdoors, but of cials ask for you – and your pets – to keep your distance from posted Critical Wildlife Areas. Don’t leave food on the beach that might attract predators and never intentionally force birds to y or run from their nest.Give nests a chance Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Register now for Lion sh ChallengeRegistration for the 2018 Lionfish Challenge is underway, with cash and prizes going to participants who catch the largest number of the venomous and invasive creatures. The contest begins on May 19 and runs through Sept. 3. To register, visit MYFWC.com/Lion sh. This year's Challenge will include a new tagged-lionfish component. Catch a lion sh tagged by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and win up to $5,000. Non-cash prizes, such as GoPro cameras, tumblers by Engel Coolers, puncture-resistant gloves by TurtleSkin, customized towels and more, also will be awarded to participants who remove and submit lion sh, tagged or not. The participants who remove the most lionfish in the recreational and commercial categories will be crowned the 2018 Recreational Lionfish King/Queen and the Commercial Champion. The goal of these programs is to encourage and track removals of nonnative invasive lion sh.FWC announces 40-day red snapper season The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Gov. Rick Scott recently announced a 40-day recreational red snapper season for both Gulf state and federal waters. A 24-day season was originally proposed. "Florida is a premier fishing destination and saltwater shing in the Gulf of Mexico has a $7.6 billion economic impact in our state every year," said Scott in an FWC press release. "Adding additional opportunities for anglers to enjoy Florida's worldclass shing not only bene ts our visitors but also our Gulf Coast communities. I am pleased to announce this extension today, and encourage visitors and residents to start planning their summer shing trips." "Florida is an important access point throughout the nation and world for recreational red snapper fishing," said FWC Chairman Bo Rivard. "With other Gulf states setting longer seasons than what Florida had initially proposed, it was important for us to nd a fair resolution that would provide equal access to red snapper in Florida. FWC worked collaboratively with NOAA Fisheries to come up with a season that would provide access to all of those that choose Florida as their fishing destination. We appreciate the leadership from Gov. Rick Scott and U.S. Congressman Neal Dunn and we are excited to announce that extension today." Florida will be setting the season in 2018 and 2019 in both state and federal waters through a fishery-management pilot program also referred to as an Exempted Fishing Permit. The 2018 proposed season would open June 11 and close July 21. This recreational season will include those fishing for red snapper from private recreational vessels. For-hire operations that do not have a federal reef fish permit are also included but are limited to targeting reef fish in Gulf state waters only. This Exempted Fishing Permit will not apply to commercial shermen or for-hire operations with a valid federal reef fish permit.

10A Schools Leader, April 26, 2018 NotebookPinellas Education Foundation celebrates Take Stock in Children anniversary LARGO The Pinellas Education Foundation celebrated the 25th Anniversary of its Take Stock in Children program and the 220 Take Stock scholars who will graduate this May at an event at Largo High School April 19. The Take Stock in Children program, now a statewide initiative found in every Florida county, was created by the Pinellas Education Foundation in 1992 with the help of Pinellas County Schools and made possible through the generous donations and support of corporate partners, individuals and alumni who invest in the scholarship program. Since the program began, more than 5,000 students in Pinellas have received a college scholarship. Many of these students are the rst in their family to go to college and the current high school graduation rate of the Take Stock scholars is 96 percent. The Pinellas Education Foundation matches donor commitments with Florida Prepaid Foundation funds to make a greater impact and reach more students. Pinellas County is the largest TSIC community in the state, with the Foundation managing 18 percent of the total TSIC Scholarships in Florida. Each year, several signing events occur where students, typically in grades six through 10, are promised the opportunity to receive a scholarship upon graduation providing they agree to earn a C or better in each class they take, attend school regularly, have good behavior in and outside of school, meet with a TSIC mentor, and remain crime and drug free among other items. Mentoring is a huge portion of the program, and the Foundation trains and supports its 800 mentors who meet with and encourage the Take Stock students at school every week for 30 minutes during the school year. The event included a recognition of the work done over the past 25 years and a presentation of scholarships and medallions for the 220 seniors of the program. These seniors will be heading to more than 25 different colleges and technical schools including the University of South Florida, Florida State, University of Florida and St. Petersburg College.LHS class of 1988 looking for classmatesLARGO Did you graduate from Largo High School in 1988?

Viewpoints 11A Leader, April 26, 2018If one is inclined to read between the lines, Marco Rubio sounded like a man running for president, again, with his blunt talk about Florida's vulnerability to a Russian attack on the upcoming elections. That doesn't mean what the junior senator from our state had to say can be dismissed as political grandstanding. Hopefully, he convinced members of the Florida Association of Counties, the group to which he was speaking, that the threat is real. It doesn't hurt Rubio's standing, though, to be a leading Republican voice about this national security issue. Now, if he can just convince President Donald Trump this is serious stuff that goes to the core of what we value as a nation, we might have to give Rubio a prize for exceptional public service. The Tampa Bay Times reported on Rubio's talk, which included this gem of a quote about the operatives: "These are not people sitting in the basement of their mom's house. These are nation state threats. They have signi cant resources and assets at their disposal to do this." That sounded a lot like a passive-aggressive swipe at the president, who dismissed concerns about Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election with the pithy comment, "I mean, it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, OK? You don't know who broke in to DNC." Speculation about Rubio's long-range plan has been increasing lately. A New York Times story this week noted Rubio's recent hire of Michael Needham, former CEO of the conservative think tank Heritage Action for America, to be his chief of staff is the kind of move made by someone with long-term aspirations. "The move is certain to raise questions about whether Mr. Rubio, whose hopes of becoming president in 2016 were dashed by Mr. Trump, may be positioning himself for another run," reporter Jeremy W. Peters wrote. "And it underscores how unsettled the conservative movement remains nearly two years after Mr. Trump won the Republican presidential nomination and became the party's improbable leader." Rubio, of course, dismissed such speculation, telling the New York Times, "It's so far-off in the future, I don't know where my mind will be." It's smart strategy though to position himself on the side of being able to say, "I told you so," especially given the president's disdain/fear about the issue of voter fraud. He has been on the right side of this issue from the start. After all, when the extent of hacking rst came to light during months before the presidential election, Rubio warned," my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us." Rubio wasn't ready for prime time when he ran for the top spot in the last election, and let's just say that now there would be a lot of room on the "Rubio 2020" bandwagon. But he is looking more like an actual senator lately than just a young man in too big of a hurry. He was visible and active trying to secure hurricane relief for Florida. His very public cooperation and working relationship with Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is refreshing. He held out his vote on the Trump tax package and won concessions for a better child care credit. And when he believes the president has done something good, he has been willing to be supportive. Whether all that is a prelude to another run for the top job, well, it's too soon to say. What we can say, though, is that Rubio has been doing more things right lately. You don't have to read between the lines to see that. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. SHOULD THERE BE A "COW" IN MOSCOW? In the USA the answer to that question is mostly "yes." That's how we pronounce the word, even though most other nationalities tend to say "Moss coe." Does it make any difference? I doubt it. I say "tom-ay-toe" and you say "tomah-toe." Who really cares? Can't we all get along? HAVE YOU HEARD that if you can prove you fully understand all the legal maneuvering going on in Washington these days, at least four law schools will give you a full semester's credit toward your earning a law degree? (That rumor is not true. But some day it may be believable). Right now, it seems to me that only a seasoned attorney can comprehend the many legal angles but also the names of all the contestants, plus ones that have been red, and when, and who slept with whom. ARE YOU AS TIRED AS I AM of repetitious TV ads? Such as the one showing the moose attacking the backyard swing set, and the actor boasting "We know a lot because we've seen a lot"? Also, the insurance company ad with the Statue of Liberty in the background and the woman telling how she received full payment when an accident totaled her beloved car named Brad. Where is the alleged creativity and productivity of the advertising agencies who foist these ads on us, with the full approval of the client companies? THE FIRST WORD in the replies of interviewed newsmakers on TV used to be "Well, ..." Recently the entry word has become "So, ..." "Sen. Jones, should we bomb the living hell out of Syria next week?" Her response: "So, I'm glad you asked that." ARE ALL FOX NEWS ANCHORMEN AND WOMEN uniformly right-wing in their political thinking? I had thought so until I read a recent Time Magazine piece about a leading (and longtime) Fox pundit. His name: Shepard Smith. The article said Smith will cover political stories, but he fundamentally dislikes politics. He's much more comfortable reporting non-political news from all over the globe. I don't know how I missed this guy, but I intend to check him out. His hour-long show comes on at 3 p.m., most days. Along this line of thinking: how often do you hear conservative viewpoints uttered on NBC and MSNBC TV news programs? Quite seldom. In these troubled times the major networks are so predictable. It's sad to realize that few national news outlets can be trusted to be free of political bias. COMPUTER TECH SUPPORT experiences can drive you crazy. Example: your computer has a minor glitch, so you phone your ISP (Internet service provider) and ask for help. The ISP listens to your tale of woe for a few minutes and then turns you over to tech support. He/she in turn calls in a higher grade tech support person. Before you know it, you're talking to someone in Kentucky, Costa Rica or India who takes full control of your computer for an hour, as you squint at tiny entries in a box that tells you what the techie is doing. He/she nally says, "It's all xed." But when you regain control, you discover that although your initial problem was solved your computer screen is now lled with strange symbols, initials and instructions. You spend the next two weeks guring out the dilemmas that tech support has laid on you. Is there any tech support outlet that is both simple and reliable? If you know of one, please let me know. WATCHING TV CAN TURN OUR BRAINS INTO APPLESAUCE, but it can also enrich our awareness of what's happening. Especially if you're a sports fan. I recently began to appreciate the skills and intricacies of soccer and lacrosse. My TV stations provide live coverage of many soccer games played in the USA and overseas (where soccer is known as football.) The playing fields are large, green and lovely, and the action is continuous and suspenseful. The same is true of lacrosse. Last week I ran across a women's collegiate lacrosse game, and was impressed by the speed, skill and fearlessness of the players. Lacrosse is quite literally a killer sport. It features a rubber ball moving up to 90 mph and, when striking a player's chest area, can be (and has been) fatal. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.netA buzz from a rst lady’s hug Editor’s note: This column was written in June 2012 by Tom Rosshirt, who was a national security speechwriter for President Bill Clinton and a foreign affairs spokesman for Vice President Al Gore. My brother Matt died of AIDS 26 years ago today, passing away in his bed in my parents' home in Houston. It was a benighted time for people with AIDS. There were no antiretrovirals then. There was nothing much you could do for an AIDS patient but hold his hand. And many people still thought you could get AIDS by touching. My parents knew of individuals who'd been red from their jobs for volunteering for AIDS organizations. That's how crazy the fear was. As Matt was dying, we were befriended by a man named Lou Tesconi, a volunteer from the local AIDS organization. Lou came by to visit with Matt and to offer whatever service and kindness he could to my mom and dad. Shortly after Matt died, Lou began studies to become a Catholic priest. Within the year, he was diagnosed with AIDS and kicked out of the seminary. Lou was a lawyer by training and temperament. He appealed the judgment to a Catholic bishop, who then asked Lou to found and head a ministry for people with AIDS. It was called Damien Ministries and was established in a poor part of Washington, D.C. In early 1989, when the country was still very ignorant and fearful of AIDS, Lou got a call from the White House. First lady Barbara Bush was planning to visit Grandma's House, a home for infants with AIDS. It was one of the very rst outings in her tenure as rst lady, and Lou was asked to join a team of people to brief her privately before the event. During the brie ng, Lou told me later, he said: "Mrs. Bush, it is a fantastic thing that you are holding these babies with AIDS. But the country sees them as innocent and the rest of us with AIDS as guilty. The whole suffering AIDS community needs a collective embrace from you today." Lou thought he was speaking metaphorically. Apparently, Mrs. Bush doesn't do metaphor. She stood up, walked over to Lou and gave him a big hug. After the briefing, Mrs. Bush took a tour of the facility as she talked to the press. She hugged, kissed and played with three little girls and then nailed the message: "You can hug and pick up babies and people who have ... HIV. ... There is a need for compassion." At the news conference afterward, Lou stood by his point on Mrs. Bush's visit: "I'm afraid that it may send a message that babies are innocent and can be helped," he said, "but that the rest of us aren't." He added: "I told her it would certainly help to get a collective hug from the rst lady." Then, again, this time in front of the cameras, Mrs. Bush wrapped Lou up in a big embrace. Mrs. Bush wrote of this visit in her memoirs. She noted that "even then, people still thought that touching a person with the virus was dangerous." But she didn't give herself any credit for dealing a blow against stigma by embracing a gay man with AIDS in 1989. Lou had a buzz from that hug that never went away. In the fall of 1991, near Thanksgiving, I got a call from a friend that Lou had gone into the hospital again. He didn't have to tell me that it was for the last time. I called the White House and asked whether I could speak to the rst lady's of ce. I was a nobody press secretary on the Hill. I didn't expect anyone in the White House to talk to me. Suddenly, I was speaking with the first lady's press secretary, Anna Perez, who had accompanied Mrs. Bush to Grandma's House that day. I began to recount the events of two years before, and she saved me the time: "I remember Mr. Tesconi," she said. I explained Lou's condition and said, "It would be so comforting for him to receive a letter from Mrs. Bush." A few days later, I went to see Lou in the hospital. As soon as he saw me, he reached beside his bed with a slow and shaky hand and pulled out a letter: "Look what I got," he said. The letter was un inching and full of love. She didn't duck the issue that Lou was dying. She used it as a pivot to say, "Well-done." At the bottom, in her own hand, she wrote to Lou that his life mattered, that he had made an impact. That was a long time ago. But some things you don't forget and shouldn't. In a time of ignorance, her wise touch eased the sting of exclusion for my friend and many others. Thank you, Mrs. Bush.

Beaches 13A Leader, April 26, 2018 By BRIAN GOFFTBN CorrespondentINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Bill Loder, better known as Crabby Bill, died April 19 at the age of 86. He had been suffering from a vascular problem for some time. Loder's son Matt, who has run the family business for years, fondly tells the story of how his father and mother got their start in business. "Our family moved here in 1968 and my dad was a shrimp boat captain in the bay, in the Jungle Prada area," he said. "He sold crabs by the side of the road. He and mom opened their rst seafood restaurant in Redington Shores in 1974. It was called Capt. Bill's at the time." After a few more moves Loder said his parents opened the first Crabby Bill's in Indian Rocks Beach in 1983. It is, more or less, where Crabby Bills is today. "It has obviously grown," said Loder. "It was a hot dog stand converted to a seafood restaurant and now it occupies the whole block." While his dad hasn't run the business for some time he was still involved said Loder. "He lived two blocks from the restaurant and went back and forth in his electric wheelchair," he said. "He'd come in and sit at his table where he loved talking to customers. He was here on Tuesday, two days before he died." Loder expanded his business to multiple locations in the early 1990s. In 1995, an offer came to buy the entire business and he decided to sell. He bought back the business in 1997. A longtime resident of IRB, Terry Hamilton-Wollin remembers Loder as being a humble man. "He and his wife Delores worked hard and they came with a certain set of values," she said. "The attitude seemed to be we succeed, we all succeed,' I've always been grateful to them." "They were very committed to their community; it was in their DNA," she said. "They were always ready to give us what we needed." Hamilton-Wollin said she won't miss Loder because he really hasn't gone away. "His spirit has been around and isn't going anywhere. I'm grateful we got to know him," she said. Former Mayor R.B. Johnson recalled saying hello to Loder from time to time and he marvels at the longevity of the family business. "It is absolutely important to the community," he said. "When you think of it there have been restaurants that come and go but they have been a long-standing presence in the city." Johnson added his voice to those who thank the Loders, led by the patriarch, Bill, for their generosity. "They have been involved in so much in the community," he said. "They have given food for local festivals and good causes for years. They have always been available for any event. It is the end of an era as far as the patriarch goes, he was an institution in this city." Current Mayor Cookie Kennedy made tribute to Loder. "He was an icon before people started using that word," she said. "He was a character that everyone loved. People would go in there and hug him every day." "He had his own unique brand which became Crabby Bill; he was very successful. He will be tremendously missed by our town. We wish the family peace in the coming months," she said. No one will miss Bil Loder more than his family and in particular his son, Matt, who stepped into his shoes in running the family business. Loder said his dad had been sick for some time. "He was 86 and a lifelong smoker for 65 years," he said. "He was a proud marine and began smoking in combat in Korea. He stopped last year but by then he had vascular problems caused by smoking." In recent months Matt has been caring for his father even as he watched him deteriorate. "It was an honor and a love to care for my dad," he said. "It was becoming more and more dif cult for him to do the things he loved to do, it was tough watching a proud man needing assistance all the time." "He used to say the golden years aren't so golden and getting old isn't for sissies," he said. Loder said his father has lived a full life and always did what he wanted to do. He said it was fortunate all the family was there to say goodbye at the end, his daughter from Oregon, his sister from North Carolina and family from Texas. "We took him to the ER on Thursday with breathing problems. He took off his oxygen and said, I want to go, I don't want anything, I want to go.' Father Rick Pilger administered the last rites and he said goodbye." "Oh my God, I am going to miss him," said Loder.

By MARK SCHANTZTBN CorrespondentTREASURE ISLAND During turtle nesting season, May 1 through Oct. 31, from dusk until dawn, Treasure Island wants to provide the safest beach for newborn hatchlings and their mothers. At a April 17 work session, city commissioners endorsed staff's plan to strengthen and clarify the city's Coastal Lighting Standards to prohibit the glow of artificial lighting from shinning or being seen on the beach, so that baby turtles do not become disoriented when leaving the nest and head in the wrong direction. Turtles are protected by federal, state, and local law. Hatchlings and their mothers are supposed to follow the moon and starlight reflected off the water and travel to the Gulf of Mexico, but artificial light can disorient and direct them toward land. "This is something that has been a long time coming and we are pretty excited about it," said Stacy Boyles, assistant public works director. "Even though we had one of the most progressive lighting standards, we were still having issues with it." Staff found enforcement of the city's existing coastal lighting ordinance to be challenging and found the ordinance language to be somewhat difficult to understand. "Over the last few years, the city has been informed of a higher number of marine turtle disorientations," Boyles said. "Artificial lighting adversely affects both hatchlings and nesting marine turtles." Marine turtles can be affected by arti cial lights from properties that are not abutting the beach, she said. Therefore, under the revision no artificial lighting is permitted to be seen from the beach during nesting and hatching season. The revised ordinance requires residents to close blinds and drapes on windows or sliding glass doors facing the beach.City to change rules in effort to protect turtles R i c h R i p p e t o e ’ s F e a t u r e d P r o p e r t i e s o f t h e W e e k Rich Rippetoe’s Featured Properties of the Week!

With racial tensions running dangerously high, Millie and Obie would appear to be unlikely allies. Yet following the acquittal of four of the of cers accused of beating Rodney King, these two must navigate the gathering chaos in the city to bring Millie’s kids home safely.

MacInnes Place, Tampa. Single tickets start at $29.50. For performance times and to order tickets, call 813-229-7827 or visit www.strazcenter.org. “1984” warns audiences with the story of Winston Smith, a small cog in the giant machine-state of Oceania. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal “help” of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his Thoughtcrimes before an unseen Inquisitor and the audience – who act as a silent witness. This ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature was commissioned in 2008 by the Actor’s Gang under the direction of the Academy Award winning actor, director, screenwriter, and activist Tim Robbins. Jobsite has history here, having previously produced the Actor’s Gang/Tim Robbins play about the onset of the Iraq War, “Embedded,” in 2008 to high acclaim. Playwright Michael Gene Sullivan is a resident playwright for the San Francisco Mime Troupe and was given Stanford University’s Equity Award for using his work to achieve racial, gender, and age balance on stage. This adaptation of “1984” should not be confused with the one that ran last year on Broadway by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. “1984” is directed by Shawn Paonessa, Jobsite artistic associate, who also provides the sound design with additional designs by Brian Smallheer (set and lights) and Katrina Stevenson (costumes). With “1984” Jobsite also follows up on the success of matinee eld trips for schools offered for its production of “The Tempest.” For “1984,” eld trips will be speci cally for high school audiences. In addition to the 17 regularly-scheduled mainstage performances the company is offering 12 weekday matinees available for high schools. Call 813-222-1047 to learn more about education outreach opportunities, request a study guide, or to book a group of 10 or more. Jobsite Theater is the resident theater company at the Straz Center. Jobsite is funded in part by the state of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, Arts Council of Hillsborough County, Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, Gobioff Foundation, Rollin’ Oats Tampa, Creative Loa ng, and Illumination Advertising. Jobsite is a 501(c)3 not-for-pro t organization and all gifts made to Jobsite are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

8B Entertainment Leader, April 26, 2018Ruth Eckerd Hall to present Alan Parsons Live ProjectCLEARWATER – Alan Parsons Live Project will return to Pinellas County for one performance Friday, April 27, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Carl Palmer also will perform. Tickets start at $45. Call 727-7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall. com. Parsons will be performing with Rock Symphony Orchestra, showcasing his greatest hits, such as “Games People Play,” “Eye in the Sky,” “I Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You,” “Prime Time,” “Damned If I Do” and “Don’t Answer Me.” It was Alan Parsons’ genius as a sound engineer for Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” that brought him to the attention of the music world in the early 1970s. From that springboard, he has gone on to enjoy success as a producer, songwriter and performer. The 11-time Grammy nominee began his storied career as an assistant engineer at the famed Abbey Road Studios working on projects such as The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” and “Let It Be,” and quickly became one of the most sought-after names in the recording industry for his engineering work with Pink Floyd. After earning accolades for his work behind the glass, Parsons, a true Renaissance man and talented musician, formed The Alan Parsons Project, a multi-platinum selling, progressive rock band featuring Parsons, his collaborator Eric Woolfson and a rotating cast of studio musicians. The Alan Parsons Project garnered commercial and critical acclaim for such certi ed Billboard Top 40 hit singles as “Eye in the Sky,” “Time” and “Don’t Answer Me” among other successes.
