Hoyt joined Patrick Bradley, co-founder of the Avian Veteran Alliance and birds of prey director at McGough Nature Park, and Dava Guerin, author of "Vets and Pets: Wounded Warriors and the Animals That Help Them Heal," to discuss the book with former President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush, who wrote the foreword for the book. By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Citing poor judgment by state lawmakers and poor communication from the Pinellas County School Board, city commissioners took the advice of City Manager Henry Schubert and unanimously voted May 1 not to help fund new school resource of cers required by a new state law. Instead, the indignant commission said it should be the responsibility of the School Board or state to fully fund the nine new of cers needed to staff Largo's six public elementary schools under the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, which requires an of cer at each public school. "If this is what the School Board wants and they are not willing to give us full funding, then I'm not interested in participating," Commissioner John Carroll said. "I know that's going to sound kind of harsh, but that's my opinion." Since the Act was signed into law March 9, local of cials have been trying to decipher the bill's language to determine who is supposed to pay for the new of cers. City Attorney Alan Zimmett said it's his opinion that the mandate is on the school district and not the municipalities or sheriff's of ce. The city currently has five school resource officers two at Largo High School, one at Largo Middle School and two at Pinellas Gulf Coast Academy with the school district reimbursing the city $58,000 for four of them. In a letter sent to Police Chief Jeff Undestad on April 27, Pinellas County School Superintendent Michael Grego proposed reimbursing Largo the same $58,000 for each new of cer for the next 18 months until the district's own police department can assume the responsibility. The cost to the city for a new police of cer position, which includes training and equipment, is $86,000, leaving the city to pay about $233,000 for the remainder of fiscal year 2018 and $728,000 the By CHRIS GEORGE  Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGOFor the entire 22-hour drive from St. Petersburg to Kennebunkport, Maine, Kaleigh Hoyt was anxious about meeting former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, at their home. It didn't matter that the 25-year-old graduate student wasn't even born when Bush was in of ce. Hoyt knew they were part of American history, and that was enough to make the butter ies in her stomach bounce around more than the pair of screech owls she was helping to transport from McGough Nature Park.The former rst lady's authenticity, con dence, grace and wit made those fears disappear within moments, and that's how Hoyt said she will remember the former rst lady who died April 17 at the age of 92. "She just automatically made you feel extremely comfortable despite her former position of first lady," Hoyt said. "Just totally welcoming. The fact that she would take the time to come out and greet us at her front door. It was just really astounding." Largo refuses to fund officersCity commissioners say School Board should be paying for the 9 new school resource of cersBay Pines issues call for service to help veterans By BRIAN GOFFTBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH For a person, perhaps retired, sitting at home with nothing to do, Nathan Witt has a job for you. Witt, the chief of voluntary service at the Bay Pines Medical Center, spoke April 25 to members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council of the need for volunteers at the center. Witt pointed out the size and scope of the facility. The Bay Pines VA Center is a hospital, a rehab center and a nursing facility. The campus also includes the National Cemetery and a Veterans Bene ts Regional of ce, one of the few places in the country to have all those VA services in one place. Built in 1933, Bay Pines covers 300 acres and 32 buildings. It is such a massive facility the need for volunteers is immense, and Witt says the jobs for volunteers are many and varied. "There are 118 volunteer jobs," he said. "Over 110,000 veterans seek help at Bay Pines each year and last year it took well over a thousand volunteers to keep it moving." Besides its facility on Boca Ciega Bay, Bay Pines has eight outpatient clinics throughout West-Central Florida that stretch from Palm Harbor in the north to Naples in the south and Sebring inland. She has this powerful presence that’s hard to put into words, but one that I will remember forever.”– Kaleigh Hoyt, co-founder of a Largo nonpro t, who met Barbara Bush in September “ “ Visit to read Hoyt’s own words on the lessons she learned from Bush. Fearless, authentic, unapologetic, elegant, con dent. These are all words the founders of a Largo nonpro t use to describe Barbara Bush after recalling a short visit with her that left an enduring mark on them.

2A County Leader, May 3, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners unanimously approved a capital funding project agreement April 24 to support design, renovations, expansions and improvements to the spring training facility for the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin. The agreement is between the county, Dunedin and Rogers Blue Jays Baseball Partnership in Ontario, Canada. The county will use Tourist Development Tax funds of up to $41.7 million to pay about 51 percent of the project cost. Total cost is estimated at just over $81 million. The county will pay its share in three installments, starting with $1.3 million to be allocated in scal year 2018, $14.8 million FY 2019 and the final payment of $14.8 million in FY 2020. The money will come from the portion of Tourist Development Taxes set aside for capital projects to bene t tourism. The money cannot be used for other purposes. The Dunedin Commission approved the agreement April 23. Now that the county has approved its funding, city staff will complete the necessary paperwork to nalize funding from the state. The city will pay $5.6 million and the state $13.6 million. The Blue Jays' share is $20 million. The team also agreed to pay another $25 million over 25 years for maintenance, operations and repairs. The tri-party deal, which it was called by county staff, continues a long-term relationship with the Blue Jays that began with the team's inception as a Major League Baseball franchise in 1977. The team has used Dunedin as its spring training headquarters for 40 years. The new deal will keep the team in Dunedin and Pinellas County another 25 years. Some of the improvements proposed for the Blue Jays Dunedin Complex include increasing seating capacity to 8,500, additional food and beverage options, a new high-de nition video board and expanded parking. It was a long time coming, commented many of the officials who spoke during the meeting. The city has been asking the county to commit to funding improvements for the Blue Jays for years, as they were needed to keep the team in Dunedin. Negotiations with the team have also been ongoing. The Blue Jays made it clear throughout all the talks that the preference was to remain in Dunedin. And the city, its residents and businesses made it clear that they wanted to keep the team for a number of reasons, including the $92 million in annual economic impact for the county. The team provides jobs. It provides heads in beds for local hotels and it provides exposure of the county to a large audience in Canada. Support for the deal had been questionable for Commissioner Janet Long; however, testimony for the keeping the Blue Jays in Pinellas from local Dunedin businesses, as well as Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos managed to convince her to make approval for the funding agreement unanimous. Some had questioned whether Tourist Development Tax money should be used to fund stadiums, which is allowable by state statute. After going through the many bene ts spring training brings to the city and the county as a whole, the Commission was convinced. And thanks to a healthy tourism industry the money is available and will likely stay available as Tourist Development Tax collections continues on a record-setting pace. Some concern was expressed that by fiscal year 2020, the money set aside to pay for capital project from Tourist Development Taxes would be down to only about $3 million; however, staff pointed out that unless something drastic happened, the fund would be replenished with collections the next year. As to what some considered an unequal share being paid by the county more than 50 percent Commission Chair Ken Welch said the Commission had always known the county would have to step in and pay more. He said Dunedin is a small city and unable to pay as much as the city of Clearwater, which has the spring training facilities for the Philadelphia Phillies. Welch also praised the use of a pay-as-you go approach over three years, which keeps the costs down in any one year. "A $40-plus million investment is not too much for a positive step for Pinellas County," he said. The Commission gave earlier approvals to several other capital improvement projects to be paid for with Tourist Development Tax money, including $26 million for Clearwater Marine Aquarium, $6 million for the Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement, $5.5 million for Ruth Eckerd Hall, $1.9 million for Countryside Sports Complex and $495,000 for Eddie C. Moore Softball Complex. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

Commissioners also were upset to learn that the School Board has not formally contacted city administration and that no representatives attended the meeting May 1.Not the best answerThe School Board wasn't alone in drawing the ire of city leaders, who called the bill an unfunded mandate. Carroll, a former Largo police chief, emphasized that the commission was concerned with the safety of students, but said state legislators acted too quickly and were misguided in requiring of cers at elementary schools. "It does seem very knee-jerk to me to mandate that municipal police departments put a fullfledged police officer on campus at elementary schools," he said. "I can't support that. I can't support the cost of that. In my 33 years of experience, I just see that as an ineffective way to deal with this, because we don't put armed police officers at our recreation centers or other places where there's a high concentration of children. So, I'm not sure how long this sort of program would sustain itself." He added that police typically get few calls from elementary schools each year and that most violent encounters happen at middle and high schools. An emotional Mayor Woody Brown agreed with Carroll that additional SROs might not be the best answer. "I think there's way more costeffective ways to make our schools safer. I have kids in elementary schools. I want to do what we can," he said, tearing up. "It's certainly a reaction that's just an emotional thing and I think that it's important to note that the school down in South Florida had an SRO on campus, and they were still unable to stop that tragedy. I think that there's a better answer." In lieu of the city providing the service, Schubert said the school district can either contract with the sheriff or expand its own police department. Cutting servicesUndestad did present the commission with two alternatives for funding the SROs if it chose to do so. He recommended establishing a reserve SRO program, whereby retired police officers would be hired on a part-time, hourly basis. The other option would be to pull three officers off patrol, three off the Problem Oriented Policing Unit and three off the Traf c Safety Unit. "Basically, what that means is the traf c and POP unit would be basically shut down for service for the time being," he said. Commissioner Samantha Fenger said she didn't want it to come to that. "I'm certainly not in favor of moving any of our officers from POP or traf c to the SRO program," she said, "and I would be in favor of supporting our city manager and attorney's analysis and recommendation to, I guess, fall back on the School Board and see what they come up with." Commissioner Jamie Robinson said the costs associated with the SROs combined with future expenses, such as the proposed increase in the homestead exemption, would likely begin to affect more than just the police department. "We start adding all this money up that the state is so happy to take from us, it really becomes a serious issue where you're now going to start having to really change the way we provide services here in Largo. Not only in the police department, but a lot of other departments that are going to be impacted by this," he said. "I believe if this is the responsibility of the School Board, then we should go ahead and let the School Board take care of it and move forward from there." OFFICERS, from page 1A Photo by BRIAN GOFFNathan Witt, chief of Voluntary Service at Bay Pines VA, speaks to the members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council on April 25 in Madeira Beach. The veterans that are served by the VA come from a variety of con icts with the largest number by far from the Vietnam era. Forty-three percent of all veterans come from that era. Fourteen percent of the veterans come from the Desert Storm con ict and 13 percent from the Korean con ict. World War II veterans make up about 10 percent of the veterans getting care at Bay Pines. Witt says they are the most interesting of all. "If you come to visit and pull up a chair next to a World War II veteran, you are going to hear some amazing stories," he said. "They are the greatest patient population ever." Witt said the 1,100 volunteers spent over 170,000 hours helping last year. Translated to money it would amount to well over $5 million. The Bay Pines Voluntary Service is the largest in Florida, said Witt. Volunteer jobs, he said, cover a wide range of things and provide something for just about everyone. "If you have been thinking of becoming a Walmart greeter well we have a better greeter job available," he said. "We have greeters to meet veterans at the door and help bring down the anxiety level of the patient." Other volunteer opportunities include making phone calls to remind patients of upcoming appointments. As well, driving the shuttle carts from the parking lots to whichever building is required. That serves to help patients simply nd their way. Another job is to push wheelchairs for patients who have to move around the campus or inside a facility. Witt pointed out there are other ways to help the VA at Bay Pines if one cannot give time. Donations of personal care items, gift cards or sweatpants and socks are always appreciated. Monetary donations are also accepted. All VA facilities need volunteer help. Since the voluntary service was established in 1946, more than 800 million hours of volunteer work have been provided. This year, nationally, it is expected that 70,000 volunteers will provide 10 million hours of service worth over $300 million. Witt presented a brief video during his talk and in it several volunteers spoke of the return they get by helping. All said they got back much more in satisfaction than they gave. As for Witt, he said it should be the other way around. "They are my boss," he said. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer at Bay Pines can go online to Hoyt traveled to Walker's Point in September as a representative of Avian Veteran Alliance, a nonpro t she co-founded in 2013 that pairs local veterans with birds of prey to promote mental health and time spent in nature. She was joined by AVA co-founder Patrick Bradley, a Vietnam War veteran and the birds of prey director at McGough Park, Telia Hann, one of the program's rst graduates, and Largo Mayor Woody Brown to promote a book that featured Bradley "Vets and Pets: Wounded Warriors and the Animals That Help Them Heal." Barbara Bush wrote the foreword for the book, and it was Hoyt's job to introduce one of the park's screech owls, Lucy, to her. It didn't take long for Hoyt to learn why Bush had been so admired. "I introduced her to Lucy and without saying anything, she just put her hand up," Hoyt said. "I looked at her and said, Let me get you a glove rst,' because even though they are screech owls, their talons can still be relatively sharp. She was like, I don't need one.' I was like, what do I do? But I'm not going to deny a first lady anything she asks of me, so if she's game for it, let's do it. So, I put Lucy on her hand, and she just sat there totally fearless."Bradley said that moment said a lot about Bush, who also lent her name to a Largo award the Barbara Bush Citizen Patriot Award that was created last year to honor her efforts supporting veterans and their caregivers. "That was a lasting impression about who Barbara Bush really is," Bradley said.A brief moment, a lifelong memoryDespite only spending a few brief moments with Bush, Hoyt said her con dence left a lasting mark on her. "It all kind of came to a head when I was standing there in front of her as far as how meaningful that moment really was," she said. "She has this powerful presence that's hard to put into words, but one that I will remember forever." Since Hoyt is trying to make her way in a eld dominated by men caring for birds of prey she said the meeting with Bush was even more meaningful and empowering. "It was this really cool moment of here's a woman who totally lived her life unapologetically," she said. "Really went against the grain of what the rest of the country had expected from what a first lady was supposed to say, how she was supposed to appear." She said it was then that she realized why Bush's legacy was so important for past generations and remains important for future ones. "We're in a moment in time now where I think it's becoming more and more necessary for women to speak up and use their voice," Hoyt said. "And I think in many ways Barbara Bush in her totally authentic, but unapologetic way of articulating herself really help set the stage." Hoyt added that Bush's combination of confidence and grace will continue to inspire her. "The biggest takeaway I think was that, despite the generational gap, the connection like a woman to woman sort of thing was a female empowerment moment across generations," she said. "She presented herself as a true matriarch. She appeared totally elegant, and she had a very interesting sense of grace about her, but also incredible con dence and wit that just radiated from her almost." BAY PINES, from page 1A BUSH, from page 1A By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Members of the Pinellas County School Board unanimously approved a memorandum of understanding April 24 with Sandy Hook Promise Foundation. Sandy Hook Promise is a national nonpro t organization that engages and empowers parents, school and community organizations to deliver gun violence prevention programs. The no-cost agreement will allow Sandy Hook Promise to coordinate and manage certi ed trainers to deliver training to staff, parents and community members. Sandy Hook Promise also will support and implement Say Something and Start with Hello, as well as other supporting activities in middle schools and high schools throughout the district. Say Something teaches children how to look for warning signs, signals and threats, especially in social media, from individuals who might want to hurt themselves or others and to Say Something to a trusted adult to get them help. Start with Hello teaches youth how to be more inclusive and connected to one another. Start with Hello works to create connectedness and sustain an inclusive culture and community by minimizing social isolation, marginalization and rejection before an individual chooses to hurt themselves or others. Sandy Hook Promise will help with recruitment and will train an adult champion within each school to start their own Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) Promise Club. Sandy Hook also will supply all supporting materials, provide one-on-one support, tools and resources to Pinellas County Schools at no cost. School Superintendent Michael Grego said Sandy Hook Promise was doing "exciting work" and he was looking forward to becoming more proactive using its programs. Donna Sicilian, executive director of Student Services, said the district already had some programs; however, the ones provided by Sandy Hook were very comprehensive and would allow Pinellas to improve its training for staff, students and families. Sicilian said the mental health community had expressed its excitement "to embrace the community at large to work together." School Board Member Linda Lerner described Sandy Hook as a "wonderful program" that was expanding all across the county. "It's impressive," she said. School Board Member Eileen Long agreed. "It puts the power with the children," she said. For more information, visit www. In other business, the Board: Denied a request of a ve-year application for Excelsior Prep Charter School.

6A Police Leader, May 3, 2018 Police BeatPinellas Park police release details of motorcycle versus truck crashPINELLAS PARK A 43-year-old St. Petersburg woman remains in serious condition in a local hospital following a crash April 28 in the 5700 block of 70th Avenue North in Pinellas Park. Pinellas Park police released details on the crash April 30, including the name of the injured woman, Hieu Bui. Police say John Yates Adams II, 54, of Pinellas Park was operating a 2014 Honda CB 1100 motorcycle traveling westbound on 70th Avenue in the 5600 block about 5:30 p.m. Dawson Jay Adams, 19, of Pinellas Park was driving a 1989 GMC truck also traveling westbound approaching the motorcycle from behind. Police say both vehicles were in the same lane when the impact took place and the motorcycle became lodged standing upright in the front grill of the truck. The motorcycle and the truck skidded to a stop in the curb lane with the motorcycle still attached. The rear passenger of the motorcycle, Bui, was ejected and drug underneath the truck. She was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Adams nor the passengers in the truck, Jayden Daniels, 15, from St. Petersburg, and Cordell Adams, 17, of Pinellas Park, who was riding in the truck bed, were injured. Investigators say speed may have been a factor in the crash. An investigation is ongoing.Injuries reported in deputy-involved crashLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say two people, including a deputy, were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a crash that occurred about 6:03 p.m. April 26 on Seminole Boulevard at Lark Drive Southwest in Largo. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team, 31-year-old Joseph Johnson of Clearwater was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro northbound on Seminole Boulevard when he failed to stop for a red traf c light signal at Lark Drive Southwest in Largo. Deputy Beetz was on-duty and traveling southbound on Seminole Boulevard in a fully marked 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe. Beetz made a left turn on a green arrow, to go east on Lark Drive Southwest from Seminole Boulevard, when he was struck by Johnson. Beetz and Johnson were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. After Johnson was released from the hospital, he was charged with driving while license suspended and cited for failure to obey traf c control signal and having no vehicle insurance. He was booked into the county jail at 12:56 a.m. April 27. Bail was set at $150. Deputies say it appears that speed may be a factor in the crash.Deputies investigate drowning of Tampa manST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating what they say appears to be an accidental drowning of a 23-year-old Tampa man on Gandy Beach in St. Petersburg. According to a media release, the drowning occurred about 4:13 p.m. April 28. Deputies say Lino Gomez and his wife 20-year-old Angela Perez were in the water on an in atable oat just south of Gandy Beach in unincorporated St. Petersburg. The tidal current pushed Gomez and Perez's oat into a deep channel that paralleled the beach. As they were trying to paddle back to the beach, Gomez fell off the oat into the water. Perez tried to help Gomez back onto the oat but she also fell into the water. Deputies say Perez was able to grab onto the oat but she lost sight of Gomez who was being swept out with the current. Perez made it back to shore safely and agged down a passing boater who helped search for Gomez. The good Samaritan boater found Gomez oating face down in the water unresponsive. The boater brought Gomez back to shore when a second good Samaritan, 37-year-old Melissa Shaffer of St. Petersburg, performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation until paramedics arrived. Gomez was transported to Tampa General Hospital with life threatening injuries. He was pronounced dead at about 2:10 a.m. April 29. Deputies say neither Gomez nor Perez knew how to swim.Pinellas deputy injured in Safety Harbor crashSAFETY HARBOR A Pinellas County Sheriff's corporal was injured in a crash that occurred about 7:52 a.m. April 26 just east of the traf c light on State Road 580 and McMullen Booth Road. According to deputies assigned to the Sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team, Cpl. John Suess IV, 36, was on-duty in his unmarked 2013 Dodge Charger, driving westbound in the median lane on SR 580, in Safety Harbor. Investigators say Suess was stopped for the traf c light on SR 580 at McMullen Booth Road, when 66-year-old Marjorie Nelson, of Safety Harbor also driving westbound on SR 580 in her 2002 Ford Explorer, attempted to change lanes. Nelson failed to see that traf c had stopped for the traf c light and she rear-ended Suess' vehicle, which caused a chain reaction and pushed his vehicle into 19-year-old Amar Basria's, 2017 Honda CRV. Suess was transported to a local hospital by another deputy with minor injuries. Nelson refused medical treatment on scene. Basria and his passenger, Erum Basria, also refused medical treatment on scene. Nelson was issued a traf c citation for careless driving, violation of driver's license restriction (corrective lenses). Deputies say it does not appear that speed or impairment are factors in the crash.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Joseph Johnson Photo courtesy of PINELLAS PARK POLICEA 2014 Honda CB 1100 motorcycle is stuck in the front grill of a 1989 GMC truck after a crash on 70th Avenue North in Pinellas Park about 5:30 p.m. April 28.

8A Outdoors Leader, May 3, 2018At the April 26 meeting in Fort Lauderdale, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission discussed Gulf red snapper management, including the 40-day Gulf recreational season. The season will run June 11 through July 20. The FWC also approved the creation of a Gulf Reef Fish State For-Hire program for 2018 and 2019. This program will enhance management efforts by requiring for-hire operations that target or harvest certain reef sh in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County) to report their intention to harvest these species. To learn more about the 40-day recreational red snapper season in Gulf state and federal waters, visit and click on "Saltwater Fishing," "Recreational Regulations" and "Snappers." For-hire operations that do not have a federal reef sh permit but target reef fish in state waters will need to sign up for the Gulf Reef Fish State For-Hire program before targeting any of the following species: red snapper, vermilion snapper, gag grouper, red grouper, black grouper, gray triggerfish, greater amberjack, lesser amberjack, banded rudder sh and almaco jack. This effort is part of a sherymanagement pilot program also referred to as an Exempted Fishing Permit. The program allows the FWC to manage recreational red snapper harvest in Gulf state and federal waters off Florida in 2018 and 2019.Goliath grouperHarvest of goliath grouper will not be limited this year, state wildlife of cials say. The FWC announced its decision in an April 26 press release. The FWC said the determination was made after hearing public comments and discussing management of the fish at its meeting in Fort Lauderdale. Rather than imposing a ban on taking the fish, the commission said it directed staff to continue current research and management "and develop a road map to direct future conservation efforts." After listening to public comments and discussing the current and future management of goliath grouper in Florida at the April meeting, the FWC directed staff to continue current goliath grouper research and management, and develop a road map to direct future conservation efforts. They did not pursue a limited harvest.Greater amberjackThe greater amberjack recreational season in Gulf state waters reopened to harvest May 1 and remain open through May 31. The season will reopen again Aug. 1 through Oct. 31. Greater amberjack is over shed and undergoing overfishing, and the season has closed increasingly early in recent years due to federal quotas being met or exceeded. This new season structure adopted at the meeting in December will optimize recreational fishing opportunities in both the spring and fall while minimizing harvest during the spawning season, helping to rebuild the stock. For more information on greater amberjack including size and bag limits and other regulations, visit and click on "Saltwater Fishing," "Recreational Regulations" and "Amberjack."Sheepshead, tripletailThe FWC approved several changes to the management of tripletail and sheepshead. All approved changes will go into effect July 1. Changes in tripletail management include: Increasing the minimum size limit from 15 to 18 inches total length. Extending all of the FWC's recreational and commercial regulations for this species into federal waters (including the new size limit). To learn more about tripletail regulations, visit Fishing by clicking on "Saltwater Fishing." Changes in sheepshead management include: Reducing the recreational bag limit from 15 to 8 sh per person, per day year-round. Creating a recreational vessel limit of 50 sh per vessel, per trip during March and April. Extending all of the FWC's recreational and commercial regulations for this species into federal waters (including the new bag and vessel limits). To learn more about sheepshead regulations, visit Fishing by clicking on "Saltwater Fishing." These proactive measures will help conserve both fisheries for current and future generations.Grouper, hog shThe FWC has announced several fish species will reopen to recreational harvest May 1 in Florida state and federal waters of the Atlantic: hogfish; gag, black, red, yellowmouth and yellowfin grouper; scampi; red hind; rock hind; coney; and graysby. Hogfish will remain open through Oct. 31 on the east coast of Florida as well as south and east of Cape Sable on the Gulf coast. The other species will remain open through Dec. 31 on the east coast of Florida and all state waters off Monroe County. More information about hogfish and grouper bag and size limits, gear restrictions and shing seasons, including a map of the Atlantic and Gulf grouper fishing boundaries, is available online at; select "Saltwater Fishing" then "Recreational Regulations."

Outdoors 9A Leader, May 3, 2018Tarpon gather for summer spawnScanning the beaches rst thing in the morning on a slick calm day might reveal some of the rst pods of migrating tarpon of the season. If you have tarpon fever you know how amazing these upcoming weeks can be. Tarpon can be spotted from great distances when the water is slick calm. These sh are gathering for the upcoming summer spawn. Typically, they'll be in pods of a dozen or so sh but it's not uncommon to encounter a massive pod of 50 or more. The beach tarpon fishing has been challenging of late, mainly due to last week's onshore wind ow. It appears that the winds are changing for the better and now we should start to see beach tarpon shing as it should be. Early starts will make it easier to spot a pod of sh that is relaxed and willing to eat. This shing should only improve from now until the next full moon. Tournament kingfish anglers may have to adjust game plans according to what the wind is doing this weekend. As for now it looks like light winds both Saturday and Sunday. If conditions allow, heading offshore will most likely be the best bet for a 30 plus pound fish. Depths of 60 to 80 feet have been the most consistent the past few weeks. Slow trolling blue runners at different depths will give you your best shot at a big sh. Onshore winds last week kept any thought of looking for tarpon off the beach out of the question. As for now the Tampa Bay snook shing has been good and should remain that way over the next few weeks. Water temperatures are warm enough now for the snook to feed well rst thing in the morning all the way until sunset. Low tides in the morning this week have had the snook pushed well out away from the mangroves. Using a slower more patient approach for these open water sh will pay off. Live bait anglers should poke along slowly a considerable distance from the trees, stopping occasionally and tossing out a few free baits. Letting those freebies nd the sh for you will keep the sh from spooking and as you zero in on the spot, more sh will gather in your chum area.

10A Beaches Leader, May 3, 2018 By LOGAN MOSBYTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER BEACH If you consider yourself a foodie who likes to be adventurous in your tastes but local in your choices, Clearwater Beach Taste Fest has exactly what you're looking for. The ninth annual culinary tour de force, set for Friday, May 4, will offer a cornucopia of culinary samples, sure to whet the whistle of even the most discerning of attendees. More than 30 restaurants will line Beach Walk promenade from 6 to 9 p.m., serving up tasty treats, as well as ne wines and craft beers. Entertainment will include musical styles ranging from the Classic '70s, '80s, and '90s to the latest dance, R&B, Motown, pop, reggae, rock, country and Latin music presented by C'Nergy Music of Orlando. Fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. "This is absolutely a signature event for Clearwater," said beach chamber of commerce president Darlene Kole. "It began as a way to bring locals back to the beach after Spring Break and it's grown so much since then." Traditionally, Taste Fest has always served as a kick-off party for Restaurant Week, a 10day event that celebrates the best of the best on Clearwater Beach, offering professional and amateur foodies alike the opportunity to sample top-notch dining or casual cuisine. That all changes this year, Kole said, as Restaurant Week has been moved to September, at the request of participating restaurants. "Restaurant owners told us they are usually so busy in May and asked if we could move it to a slower time of the year," Kole said. Restaurant Week will now be held from Sept. 14-23. Tickets to attend Taste Fest are $35 for adults; $15 for children ages 6 to 12 and children age 5 and younger get in for free. Tickets may be purchased at the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce at 429 Poinsettia Ave., at the gate on the night of the event or online at www.

Viewpoints 11A Leader, May 3, 2018To the Florida Department of Elections, I am known by the acronym "NPA" no party affiliation. That means I have not registered as a Democrat or Republican. This was a deliberate choice on my part, but it comes with consequences. NPAs will be treated as non-people in the August primaries. We can't cast a ballot for candidates from either of the two major parties, even though the primary determines who appears on the ballot in the general election. The other consequence, as a political operative once explained to me, is that I am targeted by both parties. My phone will ring constantly with suggestions that I vote for this person or that one. And my mailbox will be over-stuffed with yers and pleas from all candidates on the nal ballot. I'm the guy they want on their side. I can live with the second consequence. The rst one, though, is becoming more of a problem for me and the estimated 3.5 million Floridians who have declined to formally choose sides. The Constitutional Revision Commission took a stab at addressing that issue with Provision 62, proposed by Commissioner William Schi no, a Republican from Tampa. It would have allowed voters in November to decide if the state wanted to adopt a so-called "top two open primary" where every candidate appears on one ballot and everybody gets to vote. The top two nishers, regardless of party, then go to the general election. A few states already do this, notably California. The plan passed the Ethics and Elections Committee 6-3, but it was skunked 7-0 in the General Provisions Committee, chaired by Republican Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch. Or, in the parlance of the commission, it was laid on the table. Voters don't get to choose. The result is that we see candidates in both parties run to the extreme left or right in the primary, then disavow much of what they said when the general election rolls around because they have to appeal to the whole state. Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, for instance, spent the early days of his campaign trying to sound like Rambo on steroids talking tough about all the red-meat issues his party's base adores. I think he is a lot more moderate than he has been letting on, but general wisdom is that only the most dedicated voters in each party turn out for the primary in other words, the base. And with challengers Ron DeSantis and more-than-likely Richard Corcoran shooting routinely flames out of their mouths, Putnam is basically forced to prove he won't cave to those lily-livered liberal elites if he is elected. That's no way for anyone to govern. Fun fact: In 2010, when Rick Scott came from nowhere to win the governor's mansion, only 22 percent of registered voters turned out in the primary compared to 49 percent in the general election. In 2016, primary turnout was 22 percent compared to 75 percent in the general. An open system would help moderate some of the primary garbage we hear every time an election rolls around. The same goes for Democrats. Gwen Graham is defending herself from those on the hard left who will settle for nothing less than full support of everything on their agenda. The problem is, most people live somewhere in the middle. That brings us back to the NPA choice a lot of us make. Right now, there are two choices: stay the same, or swallow hard and pick a party. Neither one helps solve the problem. People say they are tired of all the negativity in politics. The CRC had a chance to make a small dent that but laid it on the table instead. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. LETTERS Outside my bedroom window a man with an air blower is walking up and down, directing his nozzle in all directions, with no appreciable effect other than to make an ungodly amount of noise. Plus giving me a topic to write about: the sounds of life. Has anyone ever catalogued the thousands of different sounds that exist? I doubt it. Why bother? A less daunting chore for each of us would be to list the loveliest sounds we can think of, as well as the ones we dislike the most. But even the most unlikeable sounds can be important, and sometimes vital. When triggered, the fire alarm in my condominium threatens to deafen the occupants of all ve oors. But I would not be at peace without its presence. Same thing goes for the angry whine of an oncoming police car or ambulance. Ugly, disgusting sounds in the form of spoken words also can be a warning, especially when uttered by a madman or an elected of cial gone berserk. A sound's reception or effect can depend on its source and timing. Case in point: the first wail of a newborn infant will be like a symphony to the ears of its parents. But later when the baby has a case of colic, its cries will be as unwelcome as someone dragging his ngernails across a blackboard. Which, by the way, was voted as one of the 10 worst sounds we can hear, according to a survey. Another one is the sound of someone vomiting. Also, high in the balloting is the ungodly whine of a power saw cutting through an oak tree branch, especially if it has just fallen on the roof of your new car. If you were forced to give up either your eyesight or your hearing, which would you choose? Hard to say. We learn more from our eyes, but to live in absolute silence could be torture. Especially if you're a nature lover. How many nature sounds can you name? Ocean waves washing up on a beach; a breeze among the trees or through a wheat field; the voices of birds (with some exceptions); gentle rainfall; a Category 5 hurricane blowing your dock into the Gulf of Mexico. (Oops bad example there.) While we're thinking of the blessings of sound, we should not ignore the value of its absence those delightful times when all is quiet and silence reigns. I have often referred to the joy I feel each time I press the "mute" button on my TV remote and thereby squelch a commercial break, a gaseous press conference, or the voice of a kitchen madonna telling me how to prepare a salad of chitlins and collard greens. One reason I love my cat Ellie is that she speaks gently and seldom. In contrast, my sweetheart Carolina Moon gladly puts up with her chihuahua Sparky. He pierces the Gulfport welkin a dozen times a day to warn the populace of a UPS delivery, a wandering front yard possum or a local octogenarian strolling down the street. Allow me to describe the terror and rejoicing that many, if not most, new parents may experience when their rst child comes home from the hospital. You are lled with a mix of love and trepidation. All goes well until one night you arise for your 3 a.m. check of the newborn baby and approach its crib. You lean over to listen and you hear nothing. Zero. Not a breath. Panic lls your heart and mind. But before you call 911 or your spouse, you lean farther into the crib, until your face almost touches your baby's mouth. Please God. Please God. And then you hear the steady faint breathing that was there all the time. Will you ever again hear such a joyful sound from such a tiny source? A couple of "sound" quotes to round this out. For romantics: "The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer." (Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.) For my journalist brethren and sistern: "I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they y by." (Douglas Adams.) Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ White House doctor is downWASHINGTON When he ran for president, candidate Donald Trump promised to hire "the best people" and said he would look at potential cabinet members' "track record, great con dence, love of what they're doing, how they get along with people, references." In many ways, Dr. Ronny Jackson, Trump's choice to be the next secretary of Veterans Affairs, t Trump's list until the doctor pulled his name from consideration Thursday after enduring a torrent of ugly if unsubstantiated allegations, which he denied. Track record, love of the work and references? The rear admiral had worked his way up from serving as a combat trauma doctor to the White House physician. He clearly loved his work, and could boast of glowing praise from President Barack Obama, who wrote, "Ronny does a great job genuine enthusiasm, poised under pressure, incredible work ethic and follow-through. Ronny continues to inspire confidence with the care he provides to me, my family and my team. Continue to promote ahead of peers." Missing from Trump's requirements was an important distinction that his picks be qualified. That ought to top the list for a post that oversees the federal government's second largest department smaller only than the Department of Defense with more than 360,000 employees. In 2016, Trump didn't say he'd pick people just because he likes them but that seems to be the big motivator here. Trump liked Jackson. He especially liked the way Jackson had the White House press corps stammering and too quick to reject good news during a January press conference about the president's good health. Trump recognized Jackson's lack of experience during a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday. "Now, I know there's an experience problem because of lack of experience," he said. But Thursday on "Fox and Friends," Trump suggested no one is quali ed for the job. "You could take the head of the biggest hospital corporation of the world, and it's peanuts compared to the VA," Trump said by phone. "So nobody has experience. You know it's a big monster." Of course, Jackson withdrew from consideration, not because he lacked CEO-type experience, but because of damaging stories about his handing out sleeping pills on foreign trips, alleged drunkenness on the job, including a car wreck, and a toxic management style. Jackson denied the allegations as "completely false and fabricated. If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years." Trump has argued that there was a campaign to smear Jackson, and there is reason to believe the doctor had enemies. A 2012 personnel assessment documented an intra-of ce rivalry between Jackson, then head of the White House Military Of ce, and the then-White House physician. News reports cited unprofessional behavior between the two of cers and low morale overall morale was rated as 2 on a scale of 1-10. A year later, after corrective actions that supported Jackson, the inspector general found that staff rated the unit considerably higher. The White House suggested the toxic work environment was all on the other guy. The same 2013 report also noted the perception among staff that Jackson "had blind ambitions to be the next physician to the president" and his actions were "purely politically driven for his self-advancement." Critics who believed Jackson had overstated Trump's health in January just found another talking point. Ditto those who believe Trump chose Jackson to head the VA because of the glowing health report delivered, as Brookings Institution senior fellow Kathryn Dunn Tenpas noted, with Trumpian "hyperbole." On a human level, the episode left a stain on the 23-year career of a one-time combat physician. "You can't blame the man the way he was getting beat up by anonymous sources and innuendo," said Joe Davis, communications director for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Jackson's personnel assessments address the toxic work environment issue, but charges that he mixed work with alcohol and was loose with controlled substances need more explanation from the White House. If they are false, the White House should document these reports as irresponsible. The White House should respond, if not for Jackson, then as an act of self-protection. Jackson's example serves as a warning to highly quali ed people that Trump's opposition will go to great lengths to destroy them. Ergo, Tenpas argued, Trump cannot pick people mainly because he likes them and they passed an FBI check. He has to be more careful. He should find a VA head like his Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, she said, who was " awless" in terms of his credentials. Hours after Jackson's announcement, the Senate con rmed Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. Pompeo was a highly quali ed nominee of the Gorsuch mold, and still the White House had to exert muscle to wrangle Republican votes to push him over the hurdle. Note to the White House: Getting nominees through the Senate is not going to get easier, so up your game. Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter.

The idea that people can take their pets anywhere and everywhere because they offer support is ludicrous. The situation on aircraft is the worst: people traveling with fake emotional support animals is a growing problem for ight attendants, frequent yers and people with disabilities who have service animals for medical reasons. Airlines are dealing with a growing number of injuries, confrontations and other problems resulting from these support animals. It's not only dogs and cats, but monkeys, parrots, iguanas, peacocks, kangaroos, snakes, turkeys, tortoises, rabbits, goats, wolves, hedgehog, and sheep. I've personally witnessed dogs biting, defecating and yapping. Signs have popped up in airports stating that all pets, except service animals, must be in carriers. It's become a ying zoo! We can thank HUD for allowing emotional support animals who do not need any specialized training and are there to purely give comfort and love. This is a case of government-guaranteed entitlements. What happened to common courtesy and common sense? When folks stepped forward with their peanut allergies, airlines stopped serving them on ights. What about those who are allergic to pet fur? For those who need emotional support I suggest learning meditation, taking medication or staying home. Lil Cromer Belleair

For performance times and tickets, call 813-229-7827 or visit Under the direction of Philip Neal, NGB artistic director and Patel Conservatory dance chair, jubilant music by Sergei Proko ev sweeps this magical ballet along at a brisk, joyous pace, as the renowned Cinderella characters demonstrate the beloved tale through expressive dance. Audiences will delight in Cinderella’s race-to-midnight, as her fate hangs in the balance by one very powerful glass slipper. “Cinderella” was composed in the 1940s, with the premiere being in 1945 at the Bolshoi Theatre.

The large-scale revival of this production includes nearly all of the Patel Conservatory ballet students and the 43 NGB trainees. Beautiful sets and costumes complete this magical production. Funded in part by Joseph and Teresa Kadow, the Saturday matinee performance will be live-streamed to the local children’s hospitals, sponsored by Protect U Guard. For more information about the Patel Conservatory, call 813-222-1040 or visit The accredited Patel Conservatory offers classes in dance, music and theater for students of all ages and experience levels.

Entertainment 3B Leader, May 3, 2018If nothing else, “Avengers: In nity War” answers the question “How many superheroes can you cram into one big-budget smackdown?” The answer: “A bunch.” As far as to whether or not the lmmakers can make such a lm attractive to the general masses … apparently they can. Box Office Mojo reports that “Avengers: In nity War” shattered records in its opening weekend, taking in $250 million domestically. Worldwide grosses topped $630 million. That suggests that the crowds lling movie theaters are not limited to the loyal members of fandom that faithfully attend comic book conventions. Stan Lee, former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, has long referred to devoted Marvel fans as “true believers.” This weekend, those long-time enthusiasts were joined by throngs of recent converts. “Avengers: In nity War” drew legions of devotees, old and new, to the box of ce. For the most part, the lm lives up to the hype. Warning for those who have not seen the movie: Read on at your own peril. Though I do not intend to reveal speci c plot points, I can’t guarantee a spoiler-free review. As “Avengers: In nity War” opens in the post Civil War environment, the world’s greatest superhero squad – its membership still evolving – are still committed to protecting the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle. These guys aren’t interested in street-level delinquents and wannabe megalomaniacs (such as MODOK, Baron Helmut Zemo, Klaw, Leader, Mandarin, etc.). They were the special-ops task force called upon when planet-killing enemies threaten humanity. Enter Thanos. Actually, Thanos rst appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe six years ago as the architect of Loki’s nefarious endeavors. The planners and plotters of the MCU have masterfully woven the threads of Thanos’ story throughout the individual movies, showing him manipulating events in his quest to collect all six Innity Stones. It is clear that Thanos intends to use the In nity Stones to do something momentous and universe-changing. And so, the Avengers assemble to face this threat. They are joined by an array of other superheroes, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man. Sound like a big showdown? It is. In fact, it’s showdown after showdown after showdown. “Avengers: In nity War” is audaciously larger-than-life, lled with over-the-top battle sequences, relentless action and strong performances. With multiple story threads, this ultimate superhero team crossover incorporates some of the darkest themes of the MCU to date. Even so, Marvel’s distinctive humor is mercifully prevalent, providing much-needed levity that helps offset the more ominous, bleak ideology behind Thanos’ machinations. Visually, it is a mind-blowing spectacle. In terms of the prevailing storylines that converge in Avengers: In nity War,” it is as close as you can get to Shakespearian from material that originated in the pages of mid-20th century comic books. Its tragedies are moving. Its sense of nality is shocking. And yet … “Avengers: In nity War,” though outstanding, is not the end of this story. Its cliffhanger ending is a mix of hope and sorrow. For now, audiences can only speculate how the next lm will resolve all the unanswered questions. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the lm does offer some clues that will fuel that speculation. The sequel is set to be released on May 3, 2019. It is reportedly the nal Phase Three lm of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Additional lms are planned, but the MCU landscape will likely be quite different moving forward. Here are four reasons “Avengers: Infinity War,” though not the best lm in the MCU to date, is such an impressive achievement. 1. Thanos – Brilliantly depicted by Josh Brolin, this is not your run-of-the-mill bad guy. The guy has serious issues with the nature of the universe. He desires power, but for the usual reasons. Brolin manages to portray both his madness and his pain. 2. Thor – Chris Hemsworth has been playing this character since 2011’s “Thor.” It was in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok” that the Asgardian’s quirky humor reached its maturity. In “Avengers: In nity War,” his wit and sarcasm help relieve the tension without undermining the urgency of the overall con ict. 3. Crossover teams – Marvel comic book fans have always loved unusual mashups. Some Bronze Age titles capitalized on this paradigm. Each issue of “Marvel Team-Up” paired Spider-Man with a different character. “Marvel Two-in-One” did the same with Fantastic Four member The Thing. In “Avengers: In nity War,” audiences get to see some new superhero pairings, including Iron Man and Doctor Strange tag-teaming some of Thanos’ minions. 4. The juggling Russos – As directors, Anthony and Joe Russo juggled dozens of characters in a massive ensemble cast, multiple storylines and long-established story threads dating back 10 years on lm (and much longer in comic books) with remarkable skill. Considering the frequent scene shifts, the Russos managed to give voice to all of the characters who needed to be heard. For more movie news, visit Lee Clark Zumpe is TBN entertainment editor.

OPENING, from page 1B Jannus Live to welcome Old Crow Medicine Show May 6ST. PETERSBURG – Old Crow Medicine Show will perform Sunday, May 6, 8 p.m., at Jannus Live, 200 First Ave. N., St. Petersburg. The gates will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $37.50 in advance and $45 the day of the show. For tickets, visit or call 888-929-7849. For venue information, visit www.jannuslive. com. Old Crow Medicine Show is touring in support of “Volunteer,” their new album. Released April 20 via Columbia Records Nashville, the album was recorded at the historic RCA Studio A and produced by Dave Cobb. Since the release of 2014’s “Remedy,” the band’s last Grammy-winning studio effort, Old Crow Medicine Show has taken their versatility to another level, by not only reinterpreting Bob Dylan’s seminal album “Blonde On Blonde,” but also collaborating with pop sensation Kesha. “Volunteer” is yet another ne example of how Old Crow Medicine Show remains one of the most vibrant and forward thinking traditional bands of their time. Old Crow Medicine Show started busking on street corners in 1998 New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina, where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band was hired to entertain crowds between shows at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Since then, the band has gone on to receive the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and have won two Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album for “Remedy” (2014) and Best Long Form Music Video for “Big Easy Express” (2013). Additionally, “Wagon Wheel,” their classic single, received the RIAA’s Platinum certi cation in 2013 for selling over 1,000,000 copies. Old Crow Medicine Show has toured the world playing renowned festivals and venues such as Bonnaroo, Red Rocks Amphitheater, Cambridge Folk Festival, Coachella, London’s Roundhouse, The Ryman Auditorium, The Barclays Center, New Orleans Jazz Fest, The Fox Theater Atlanta and The Kennedy Center Concert Hall. They’ve toured with artists such as Willie Nelson & Family, Brandi Carlile, Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, John Prine, The Avett Brothers and others.
