By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO In June, residents will begin receiving notices that their garbage and recycling bills could be increasing come October. Largo of cials say the rate hike is needed because the cost of providing the service has gone up since the last increase about 10 years ago. But they also say there's another reason for the likely 20 percent rate hike: China. The country, which takes in about half of the world's recyclable materials, instituted a new policy this year that bans the import of 24 types of solid waste, including some paper and plastic products, and cuts back on the amount of contaminated recyclables it will receive. In April, it announced it will add dozens more to the list in an effort to reduce pollution. OMB Manager Meridy Semones said the move has created turmoil in the worldwide recycling market, and Largo's no exception. "It's not necessarily that our particular recyclables are any more or less contaminated than anyone else, it's just the market worldwide is drying up for recyclables," she said. Since 2014, the Progressive Waste Solutions plant in St. Petersburg has paid the city about $300,000 each year for its recyclables, but Semones said that revenue stream will dry up soon. "Right now, we have a contract with the facility that goes through the end of February 2019, where they are paying us for our recycled materials that we drop off," she said. "They've already notified us that when that contract is up, they will no longer be paying us for recyclables and we'll have to pay to dispose of them there." Semones said an analysis is underway, but if the city wants to continue to use the facility, it could have to pay in excess of $350,000 annually for tipping fees.Exploring its optionsAccording to Sustainability Coordinator Laura Thomas, Largo recycled over 11,000 tons of mixed and clean plastics, cardboard, glass, paper and other products last year. The city offers nearly 16,000 single-family homes curbside services and around 12,000 households participate each month.

A change in ChinaÂ’s policy on the import of recyclables is among the reasons city of cials have proposed a 20 percent increase in solid waste fees. By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Citing the city's strategic focus on community pride, city commissioners approved a $15,000 program May 15 that provides matching grants to groups looking to spruce up their neighborhoods with small beauti cation projects. "Registered neighborhood associations, civic groups and crime watch groups will be able to apply for up to $3,000 in reimbursement for physical improvements to common areas or neighborhood entryways," said Community Outreach Coordinator Brenda Clark during a City Commission meeting at City Hall.

PETE BEACH As several towns and cities in Pinellas County and all over Florida wrestle with the issue of short-term rentals in their communities, the numbers piled up by Airbnb seem too daunting to slow down, never mind stop the growth of short-term rentals. In Florida, any community that had ordinances in place prior to 2011 that governed short-term rentals could keep those laws on the books. After that year, ordinances passed by communities after 2011 could not be enforced. Florida law now stipulates that communities cannot dictate to homeowners how often and for how long they can rent their property. Airbnb and other such home rental organizations seem to be the stumbling block for communities wanting to regulate short-term rentals.

2A Largo Leader, May 17, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners proclaimed May 20-26 as Emergency Medical Services Week and presented the 2018 EMS Professionals of the Year awards during the May 8 meeting. The award for Emergency Medical Dispatcher went to Sandy Stoinski, public safety telecommunicator III, Pinellas County Emergency Communications/Regional 911. The award for Emergency Medical Technician went to Aaron Dill, eld training of cer/EMT, Sunstar Paramedics, and the award for Paramedic went to Stephen Bailey, lieutenant/paramedic, Largo Fire Rescue. They each received a small monetary reward from Pinellas Credit Union, which has supported the program for 28 years. The narrator for a video introducing the awardees said, "911 telecommuncators are often the rst of the rst responders. The role requires staying cool under pressure and being the calm during the storm." That's the reason Stoinski, a 20-year veteran telecommunicator, received this year's award. An example of the work she does happened Sept. 10, 2017, during Hurricane Irma when she helped the mother of a child who was having an asthma-related emergency. Storm conditions were too dangerous to send an ambulance. "I talked to her for a little while and tried to use the tools I have as an EMS (emergency medical dispatcher) to help her," Stoinski said in the video. The goal was to "keep him going until rescue could respond," she said. "Eventually, I ran out of options, and I was so worried about this little boy," she said. "The only thing I could think of was to transfer (the mother's call) to an actual paramedic." The paramedic talked to the mother over the phone and offered "old school remedies" she could try. "I guess between all of these steps, we actually saved this little boy's life," Stoinski said. "And there's nothing better than that. That feeling." "Known for being punctual, meticulous and always ready to help in case of an emergency," is how the narrator described Dill and the reason he was named EMT of the year. He is also known for his empathy for his patients. During transports, he asks patients if their homes are locked or if their pets are cared for and will nd a friend or loved one who can help. He stays focused on the wellbeing of others. "Just helping people every day whatever that is that they need," Dill said in the video. "If they just need some comforting words or they need some actual intervention. Whatever I can do to help them to make them better." Dill's decision to become an EMT was in part to honor his late father and make his younger sister proud. "I wanted to be a positive role model for her and someone she could look up to," he said. "Something like this profession means a lot to me in that regard." "Serving the public is in his blood," the narrator said in introducing Lt. Bailey, paramedic of the year. His father is a re ghter and his mother is a nurse, meaning Bailey is "continuing the family business." He is both a re lieutenant and registered nurse. And he spends a lot of time in the classroom teaching others. Classes he teaches include CPR, orientation for new medics and continuing education to veteran medics. "Anything really that has to do with the medical side of things, I try to delve right into and learn everything about it and have the opportunity to come in and teach it," Bailey said in the video. He believes passing on what he has learned to other paramedics makes the entire community safe. "The citizens who live here actually deserve the highest quality of care and that's something we want to provide them," he said. Suzette Porter is TBNÂ’s Pinellas County editor.

She said it's too early to tell how the changes will affect the services Largo provides, but she doesn't expect any changes soon. "Staff and administration are paying close attention to any changes in the recycling market so that we can anticipate any potential changes to our community," Thomas wrote in an email to the Leader. "We are in close communication with our stakeholders and do not anticipate any changes to the recycling services we offer to our residents, businesses or visitors." Semones said, however, that the city is exploring its future options, including the possibility of taking all the materials to the county incinerator for an annual cost of $250,000. "There's a number of different recyclable materials, and we are looking at what makes the most sense to recycle and kind of a cost-benefit analysis," she said. "Not only in terms of cost to the city monetarily, but cost on the environment as well. So, we're doing an analysis on what it would take to kind of nd a medium point for what materials we can recycle. But if we continue recycling everything, with our current total amount of tonnage, we're looking at about a $500,000 increase in our annual operating budget." The extra expenses, combined with higher than projected expenditures for FY 2017 from Hurricane Irma, will mean Largo residents are likely to pay more for curbside collection, which is currently $17.65 a month. In fact, the uncertainty led city of cials to increase the solid waste rate hike from 15 to 20 percent and enact it a year earlier than planned. In the meantime, Semones said city staff are working to find a solution that bridges the gap until the markets settle, so that the City Commission can make a nal decision in August. "Right now, the market is kind of in turmoil when it comes to recyclables and there are a number of alternative markets that are working on getting up and running India, Thailand, Vietnam, different places around the world," she said. "So, whatever the case, we want to present an intermediate option right now to the commission that makes sense for our community and for the city nancially, but doesn't completely shift all policy that we've spent years creating on environmental sustainability. So, we're hopeful that other markets may emerge during the time that we need to make some of these decisions."4A Largo Leader, May 17, 2018 Around LargoFellowship conference to feature music, food, variety of speakersLARGO The Witness of Oneness Fellowship Conference will be held Saturday, May 19, 10 a.m., at St. Mary Missionary Baptist Church, 2104 12th St. SW, Largo.

See LARGO, page 5A RENTALS, from page 1A PROGRAM, from page 1A On May 11, the director of Florida Airbnb, Viviana Jordan, was the special guest speaker at the annual Tourism Luncheon of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. The numbers she revealed might make some communities think twice about any regulations given the economic impact she put forth. "Worldwide there are up to 300 million guests staying in Airbnb properties," she said. "There are 4 million listings on Airbnb in 8,000 cities in 191 countries. There is everything from castles to treehouses." "On any given night in the U.S. there are 2 million guests staying in homes rented through Airbnb," she said. "On New Year's Eve that number swells to 3 million." In Pinellas County in 2017, Airbnb brought over 140,000 visitors to the area and generated over $24 million in revenue for the homeowners, or hosts. Who is doing all the renting? Jordan says they are just regular people. "There is a growing trend to human interaction," she said. "In one case a couple traveled the world and visited 68 countries and stayed in an Airbnb every night. That is bold, I know." Jordan said more than 40,000 homes are registered with Airbnb in Florida. "Our mission is to bring visitors from all over the world," she said. In response to a question from the audience, Jordan said Airbnb hosts and guests are protected with a $1 million insurance policy on each one. Another person brought up the question of local ordinances and regulations. Jordan said any county can have their local rules posted on the Airbnb website. "We don't enforce local policies," she said. "We do invite cities to post those policies on our website if they wish." As for unruly guests who might rent an Airbnb property in a neighborhood, she said Airbnb has an app called the Neighbor Tool where people can report problem properties. Saying her company is here to stay, Jordan offered an explanation as to why Airbnb is so popular. "The variety of homes offered is designed to suit the comfort of every guest, especially families who can use the extra space and comfort of home," she said.Person of the yearThe highlight of the tourism dinner was the awarding of the annual Tourism Person of the year; this year's winner was Maryann Ferenc, the CEO and co-proprietor of Mise en Place, a Tampa restaurant. In addition to running the restaurant, Ferenc is active in various community organizations and takes part in helping feed the homeless. She was described as essential to the cultural and economic health of the area. walkways, fountains and architectural, energy-saving lighting in a common area or neighborhood entryways. Projects, however, must enhance the neighborhood's identity, enlist community participation, be highly visible to the general public and be permitted by city regulations. Clark said the program requires a match for requested funds, which can be met with cash, in-kind donations or volunteer hours. Once permits are approved, groups have 180 days to complete the project. Projects not requiring a permit have 90 days to nish, and then will be reimbursed. Several commissioners expressed enthusiasm for the program, but not everyone in the audience agreed. Largo resident Geoff Moakley said he'd prefer the city didn't spend his tax dollars on somebody else's neighborhood. "Why should every citizen in Largo fund a project not on their own area and fund it for somebody else," he said. Commissioner Samantha Fenger countered by pointing out that projects are required to be highly visible to the general public, so the program is "serving all of us and is improving the entire city." Clark added that she and city staff will be reaching out to neighborhood associations to spread the word, which will provide an added bene t. "We hope that this will foster the communications and revive the communications with neighborhoods that we haven't talked to in a long time."

Notable new projects in the CIP include major road and sidewalk work to be funded by the renewal of the Penny for Pinellas. Also, initial planning for the replacement of three fire stations has been included in the CIP. Commissioners authorized the city manager to foreclose on an abandoned house at 511 Cleveland Ave. that has been vacant and cited for excessive growth of weeds and debris since 2014. Code enforcement of cials said the property is a blight on the neighborhood and the city continues to receive complaints about the property. Of cials said numerous attempts have been made to contact the property owner, Glenn Packer, to no avail. The property will now go to the highest bidder, and if that is the city then it plans to demolish and redevelop it through one of the city's affordable housing partners. TBN le photoAn automated side loader collects recycling from a home on 137th Lane North in Largo.the public, he said, made a long-lasting impression on him. They had such an impact on him that, decades later, when he decided to build a personal library and jewelry studio, the Tarpon Springs resident turned to his favorite of these buildings for architectural inspiration. The result is an homage to the Jefferson Memorial and his boyhood. The building's exterior is a replica of the historic structure, including the dome and columns, said Whitehurst, 76. "I've always admired the Jefferson Memorial," he said. "I liked the roundness, the dome, the columns, that sort of thing." He began designing the building nearly 30 years ago. "I just started playing around with designs that might be suitable for a building for myself," he said. "I never really expected to build it." Still, despite not taking his design seriously, Whitehurst acquired the original architectural plans for the Jefferson Memorial, which he used as the basis for the initial oorplan he drafted. But it was more out of fascination with the plans than the thought that the building might one day come to fruition. "I was intrigued. They're big suckers, and all done in pen and ink," he said. "They're works of art themselves, masterpieces of drafting." As he got older and began considering his retirement he'd owned a jewelry gallery in Clearwater for 37 years turning his dream building into a reality began to seem less and less farfetched to him. "I thought it might be nice to create this gallery and library, and have my studio close to where I work," Whitehurst said. He lives nearby, as well, he said. "Just 300 feet away." Construction began eight years ago, in 2010. Now, with only nal decorative touches to its interior left to make and the last pieces in his massive library which consists of nearly 11,000 items, including books, DVDs and CDs to catalogue, this passion project is nearing completion. The 7,200-square-foot structure sits on just under 6 acres of land. It's unlike anything else built in his neighborhood, he said, and he's used to eliciting attention from neighbors and passersby. "I don't blame them," he said. "It's certainly different." There are also many nods to his love of history inside the building. For instance, the decorative detail of the dome's interior mimics the Capitol building's dome. "I hate to destroy the romance of it, but it came down to a peel-andstick operation," Whitehurst said. He took photographs of the Capitol building dome and used Photoshop to adjust the size and create a pattern that would t the dome of his building. Then, he had the pattern printed on special vinyl that he then adhered to the domed ceiling. A portion of the second-floor wrought iron railing in the building is a replica of a railing that President George Washington stood in front of when he rst took the Oath of Of ce. Throughout the building there are pieces of antique furniture, a variety of statues and paintings, even vintage cash registers and typewriters. What stands out most for librarian Meredith Myers, who is based in St. Petersburg and has worked with Whitehurst for three years to catalogue his collection of books, movies and music, is "the amount of learning in this building." Myers, who is also a stand-up comic who performs under the name the Stand-up Librarian, writer and accessory designer, said she met Whitehurst three years ago at the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair held annually in St. Petersburg. She served as the spokesperson for the event and also sold her literary purses and fashions at the event. As the weekend ended, while she packed up her vendor table, Whitehurst approached her. "He didn't want to talk to me about my products, he was looking for a librarian," Myers said. "I was in one of my cute out ts, I'm cleaning up and tired, when this man comes up to me. I'm thinking, Oh, great, here's another crazy old man hitting on me or something.'" Whitehurst took her card, and the following week, she began a job working on a cruise ship. When she returned home from the gig, she found an email from him waiting for her. "That's when I realized, wow, this guy is not crazy; he's serious," she said. The two connected over their love of books, music, education and de-sign. She got to work cataloguing his collection. "This place is breathtaking," she said. "To build a library from scratch, especially this library, was an absolute honor for me and an opportunity I couldn't pass up." Together, they decided design details, such as gold, rather than the standard white, call numbers for books and other items. They also chose to use the Library of Congress Classi cation System for the books. "It really ts with the theme of the building," Myers said. For the DVDs and CDs, though, they used a classi cation system that Whitehurst had created and been using for years. Now, as the project winds down, Whitehurst is thinking about its future. He'd like to open it to the public, especially to schoolchildren. "I'd like to make the venue available for certain kinds of activities. I'd like to have it as a place where public school students can come to for music, art and history enrichment," he said. Though he doesn't foresee it operating as a lending library, his books cover "a fairly broad range," he said, ranging from topics such as history, religion and philosophy to science and math. There's "a lot of knowledge" in there that he hopes to share with others. He added, though, "But it's not meant to be an omnibus library. It's just my own collection over time." RECYCLING, from page 1A REPLICA, from page 1A Photos by TIFFANY RAZZANOJewelry designer Gareth Whitehurst built a replica of the Jefferson Memorial near his Tarpon Springs home. The structure serves as his jewelry design studio and also houses his personal library of nearly 11,000 books, DVDs and CDs.

"We've identi ed those who are making a huge impact in our neighborhoods, and our mission is to educate our neighbors about their effectiveness, build stronger community awareness of volunteer opportunities with their programs, all the while we are offering opportunities for their volunteer teams to more effectively have access to the grant funding that we raise from our family-friendly and fun community events."

The train ride was an hour, and we had to walk about 15 minutes on the boardwalk to get to Bay 10. The boardwalk smelled of cotton candy and hot dogs, and the famous roller coaster, the Cyclone, raced up and down the tracks and all you heard were the screams of the people as the Cyclone sped faster and faster. When we nally reached Bay 10, we spread our blanket on the beach and jumped into the cool water. When we returned to the beach, a bunch of boys had their blanket close to ours. They started to talk to us and we told them we lived an hour away in South Brooklyn. However, these boys lived close to Coney Island and told us if they didnÂ’t have enough money to ride the train, they could walk home. On that day, we met quite a few of these boys and one whom I eventually married. His name was Eddie, but I didnÂ’t care for him that summer. He was just a boy I knew; I didnÂ’t date him or any of his friends. A whole year passed, and I once again went to Bay 10. I was now almost 16 and when I saw Eddie that summer, my feelings towards him changed. We began dating and it was not easy because I lived an hour away. All that winter, we only saw each other on the weekend because we were still in school. Eddie would take the train to see me, get back on the train to take me to the movies, take me home and then make the return trip back to Bensonhurst. His parents thought he was crazy. Why couldnÂ’t he nd a girl in his own neighborhood? The following spring, Eddie got his driverÂ’s license; he got his fatherÂ’s car and said good bye to the subway. We both graduated at the same time and I went to his prom which was held at the Waldorf Astoria. I wore a strapless dress and a sparkling tiara in my hair. After the prom, we went to the Copacabana where Paul Anka was appearing. The whole night was beautiful and memorable. Eddie and I were married in my church on July 4, 1964. During the course of ve years, we had three children and are the grandparents of two granddaughters and three grandsons. In July, we will celebrate our 54th anniversary. Who would have guessed that a chance meeting on the beach so many years ago would have brought us together and cemented our love? Eddie and Linda GentileHow did you and your signi cant other meet? On a train, on a plane? At school or work? Was it a blind date or are you childhood sweethearts? We want to hear your stories!

8A Viewpoints Leader, May 17, 2018While it unquestionably is the right time for Richard Corcoran to go home to Land O'Lakes, as he promised to do if he didn't run for Governor, that doesn't mean he will stay there. At age 53, Corcoran has a lot of hop left on his political fastball. I would be stunned if we don't see him in a signi cant role if Adam Putnam is elected Governor this fall. It became clear in recent weeks that a Corcoran candidacy was attracting sti ed yawns from the electorate. I'll give him credit for seeing the landscape as it really was and not pushing a losing hand. Aligning with Putnam was the smart play for him, and we'll see how that unfolds. I'm not saying there was a quid-pro-quo between Putnam and Corcoran that led to the outgoing Florida House Speaker's exit Wednesday from a race he never of cially entered. But his rapid endorsement of Putnam means we shouldn't be surprised if Corcoran shows up somewhere in a Putnam administration. For instance, would anyone be shocked if he took a prominent role in education leadership? Those aren't elected positions, and Corcoran is passionate about changing the way Florida's children receive their education. He is a lawyer, so he can go back to that full-time if he chooses. He is a family man with growing children, so staying closer to home would have appeal. His political expertise would be in demand if he wants to do some consulting. Obviously, all that is speculation until we see how the election shakes out. And while pundits are combing through the story of Corcoran's gambit looking for deeper meaning, I doubt it will have much impact on the Republican primary or general election. Corcoran had raised a lot of money and spent time trying to build drama for what looked like a commitment to run, but his campaign that technically wasn't a campaign didn't go anywhere. It wasn't happening. It's interesting how someone who spent as much time in the headlines as Corcoran couldn't penetrate the public consciousness. His name recognition, for good or not, should have been considerable. Political writers penned a lot of stories about Corcoran, and the impact of his two years as Speaker was considerable. Florida's public-school leaders basically spit on the ground when his name is mentioned. He was an unapologetic antagonist to the education status quo, and that meant shepherding through laws that bene tted charter schools and forced cash-strapped public schools to look for pennies in the seat cushions. For all that impact, though, his name didn't connect with a big majority of Florida voters. Even after his ill-considered attempt to terrify citizens with that horrible commercial about undocumented immigrants and murder, his name still didn't register on the radar of everyday Floridians. So, even though he is in Putnam's corner, it's likely nothing that will tilt the election. Corcoran would have been the X-factor in the Republican primary, which now is a two-man scrum between Putnam and Fox News darling Ron DeSantis. But even though he won't be on the ballot this time or maybe ever again, we haven't seen the last of Corcoran. It's up to the individual to decide if that's good news or ill. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. How should we regard the millions of people who spend most of their spare time staring down at their laps, squinting at an iPhone or similar device? Should we assume that these folks are just swapping emails, doing crossword puzzles or watching "The Young and the Restless" and wondering if and when Victor Newman is ever going to die? I'd like to believe that many of the lap-squinters are reading Shakespeare, Tolstoy, James Joyce, Stephen King or other worthy authors. A form of unfair prejudice in this digital age is for bibliophiles to scorn people who don't buy, borrow or steal dozens of books each year. Or in a lifetime. Confession here: I used to feel ill at ease if I entered someone's home and discovered that it contained not one single book. I'd wonder "How can they live this way?" But one day I remembered that I had grown up in a bookless family. We had magazines and an occasional newspaper, but no books except for those my siblings and I brought home from school. Today I know that absence of books is not an indictable offense any more than a home lled with books is a guarantee that someone has actually read them. If you don't own a solitary book but you do have a computer, Kindle or other PDD (personal digital device), you possess the power to access thousands of books just by punching a few keys. This can connect you immediately to the digital equivalent of God or the Library of Congress. This latter-day miracle is called The Cloud. It consists of thousands of computer storage devices scattered across the globe. They stand ready to tell us anything we need to know, except (1) how to always be happy, and (2) what women (and men) want. Will digital devices ever become as lovable as a book? Maybe, but I doubt it. An average iPhone may be able to connect me with unlimited information, but it has no smell to it. A leather-bound book will carry its own odor, even if the book is a hundred years old. A book's contents will probably be the work of a single author. Inside the book are words, thoughts and ideas, not just gigabytes dealing with a thousand topics (as marvelous as that capability might be). You may have seen a TV series called "Hoarders." It featured homeowners apparently suffering from an addiction that prevents them from discarding virtually any object that enters their homes. The result is a nightmare of clothing, bottles, furniture, soap, cheese, bedding, eyeglasses you name it, and a hoarder will have it. Except, maybe, for books. I haven't watched the program carefully, but I don't recall seeing a book on any of the premises shown. Is that signi cant? I don't know. The modest home of my friend Lola contains about 3,000 books (rough estimate). They are neatly stacked on shelves, table tops and other horizontal surfaces. Lola was delighted recently when she saw an advertisement for a T-shirt that reads "It isn't hoarding, if it's books!" She does not pretend to have read every page of every book she owns. She hopes to do so, but her most intense pleasure comes from just acquiring any book that sounds interesting. She will buy books for her friends, but she will not give away any members of her collection. They are her beloved children. I own fewer than 200 books. My attitude toward many of them is utilitarian. If they make me laugh, help me worry less, or give me hints about how to write, I will keep them. Otherwise they are subject to one of the occasional clearances I carry out. As I review my modest book collection I ask two questions of each volume: Have I opened you up during the past six months or a year? Is it likely I will do so in the coming year? If the answer is "no" to either question, I will give the book to my local library. I take delight in my books, but I'd make a lousy hoarder. Bob DriverÂ’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.Trump time is breaking with traditionWASHINGTON President Donald Trump has the White House running on fast forward. He is pushing the once crusty and creaky foreign policy apparatus to move at the speed of Twitter. Is Trump's at-a-blur pace for better or worse? Consider Trump's action-packed Thursday. At 3 a.m., the president and rst lady shared a triumph at Joint Base Andrews as they greeted three buoyant American prisoners released by the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in advance of June's big meeting between Trump and Kim. "This is a wonderful thing that he (Kim) released the folks early. That was a very big thing," Trump exclaimed. Fast is good. Hours later, Trump tweeted more big news: "The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!" That's right. Trump scheduled a summit that leaves his national security staff and the hollowed-out State Department bureaucracy about a month to prepare for complicated negotiations involving highly technical issues. It would have been nice if Trump were this quick at lling vacant positions in Foggy Bottom. Did he schedule the summit too fast? "Yes," answered Ty Cobb, a foreign policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan now with the National Security Forum. In Cobb's experience, summits follow extensive preparation over minute details all resolved before a summit begins, so that the summit itself is simply a ceremony. Trump is leapfrogging over the usual order. And yet, Cobb nds himself thinking maybe Trump has found a smart approach with North Korea. Cobb said he had just nished a panel discussion with two other national security veterans, and all three "were struck at the success this president has had relying on his instincts instead of the bureaucracy." Americans pretty much had become used to the glacial pace of statecraft. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are ripping up the old playbook. While Trump was announcing U.S. withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear pact on Tuesday, Pompeo was already on to the next thing. "At a Key Moment, Trump's Top Diplomat Is Again Thousands of Miles Away," read a disapproving headline in The New York Times. The Times didn't look all that hot when Pompeo returned from Pyongyang with three freed prisoners in tow. In December, when Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and said he would move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City D.C.'s chattering class expected the move to take years. Wrong. On Monday, some six months after Trump's declaration, the United States opened the new embassy and thus make good on a promise in legislation enacted in 1995. Yes, the new Jerusalem embassy will be carved out of an old compound a few rooms inside what has been the U.S. consulate of ce in Arnona, a suburb of Jerusalem. "It's not real," scoffed former Obama Undersecretary of State Ellen Tauscher. "This is like changing the sign on a hotel." Tauscher added there will not be enough room for most of the staff stationed at the longstanding embassy in Tel Aviv, so "I don't think that the embassy is moving." Cobb posited that past administrations would have moved at a snail's pace to relocate the embassy. Various staffs would have picked through all the angles, he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and then "would have reached a compromise decision that satis es no one." James Carafano, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, offered that he would have recommended against the embassy move. "Nobody really cares about the embassy," Carafano said, "not even the Palestinians. It's all symbolic." Trump? He "does it anyway," Carafano continued to show the Palestinians that Trump is serious about their leaders' need to change. If year two of Trump's foreign policy seems to be moving fast, Carafano added, it's because Trump is an intuitive decision-maker. In the rst year, America didn't see these rapid- re moves because, "You can't be an intuitive decisionmaker if you don't know the issues." But now Trump is up to speed. Trump brought Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton on board, said Carafano, "to get the government to move on Trump time." Trump time those two words no doubt send shivers through the saggy spines of foreign policy solons. Cobb sees an executive "overturning decades of tradition and caution." Is he worried? "Yes, we're all worried about that," said Cobb. But to Trump's credit, "it's worked out so far." Despite all the doomsday predictions, Carafano noted, "He hasn't started World War III yet. That's good." Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ reviewjournal.com or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter. We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

After he explained the bene ts of the program at his former FD post in Columbus, Ohio, allowing radio and telemetry contact from an emergency scene directly to the nearest hospital's ER physician, I found that our budget for the year had already been set, but the idea was proposed to the Treasure Islettes by my soul mate, and a major contribution made. Other large contributions were made by the Motel Association, the TI Business Committee, civic associations, and individuals. It was a very proud moment when the rst ALS contact was made between TIFD and Dr. Norton in the Palms of Pasadena ER, in 1974. It was the rst in the Tampa Bay area, if not the state, and has proven its value in saving lives. It is a program which must be preserved. Julian W. Fant former mayor and commissioner Treasure IslandSwimming project called a successEditor: We want to thank our private and public sponsors for the 34th Annual Every Child A Swimmer program this year. I know the students learned a lot and many progressed to the point of swimming on their own. It's amazing to see the progress they make over the three-week period. We helped 20 children be safe and healthy swimmers and you helped make their experience important. Together we provided 160 hours of instruction with over 100 hours of volunteer and Kiwanis Club help. We couldn't make this program work without the help of our citizen volunteers, Kiwanis Club members, the City of Seminole Recreation Dept., the Seminole Pinch A Penny pool store, Publix, McDonald's and others. Thank you again for making this project the success that it is! Cliff Englert, President, Kiwanis Club of Seminole
Schools 9A Leader, May 17, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Pinellas and 12 other school boards believe that House Bill 7069 violates Florida Constitution. They filed multidistrict litigation challenging portions of the bill on Oct. 16, 2017. One of the primary objections of those filing suit is that HB 7069 requires school districts to share money they receive through property taxes to fund capital needs with charter schools, which operate privately outside local school board control. It also requires school districts to share money they receive for schools with high numbers of lowincome students with charters. And it facilitates creation of new charter schools to serve in areas where public schools are lowperforming. Pinellas County School Board allocated $25,000 to pay its share of the lawsuit that alleges that HB 7069 violates the Constitution's mandate that school boards "operate, control and supervise all free public schools within the school district," among other arguments. A trial court issued a ruling against the school boards April 17. School Board Attorney David Koperski told the Board on May 8 that at least nine of the school boards that led the original suit were going to appeal the court's decision. He said some of the smaller districts had decided to drop out. He recommended that Pinellas join the appeal to the appellate court and on to the Supreme Court, if necessary. He asked the School Board to authorize no more than $15,000 to pay to continue the ght. School Board Member Joanne Lentino asked how likely it was that an appeal would be successful. Koperski said he couldn't guarantee anything, adding that it was his legal opinion that at least a portion of HB 7069 was illegal. He said the case needed to be heard by the appellate court to get a " rm ruling," as so far the opinion was just that of one trial judge. "It's just one person's opinion," he said. He said on appeal, the decision would be made by a panel of judges and if it went on to the Supreme Court, the case would be heard by multiple judges. School Board members voted unanimously to join the appeal.School Resource Of cer of Year namedPinellas County Schools Chief of Police Luke Williams announced that Of cer William Connell from Lealman Innovative Academy is the 2017-2018 School Resource Of cer of the Year. Williams highlighted some of reasons Connell was chosen, including how he builds relationships with students and has changed the environment at the school attended by fifth through 12th graders. Williams said when Connell started, students didn't interact with him, but now they come by his of ce to visit and to get "treats and snacks for good behavior." He described Connell as a "culture changer," who had developed a "true partnership" with students and staff.In other business, the School Board: Unanimously approved a veyear, high-performing charter replication for St. Petersburg Collegiate High School to be located on St. Pete College's campus on Drew Street in Clearwater. Staff will begin negotiations with the school, including concerns about preference given to certain students. Unanimously approved renewal of student services agreements with nine of the District's 38 providers, including CASA, Children's Home Community Counseling Services, Directions for Living, Family Resources Inc., Lutheran Services Florida Inc., Operation Par Inc., PACE Center for Girls Inc., PEMHS Inc., SequelCare, Suncoast Center Inc., Empath Health and the Haven of RCS. In a separate vote, an agreement with Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services was approved with Chairwoman Rene Flowers abstaining. Unanimously approved the first reading of revisions to the Student Code of Conduct. According to Area Superintendent Ward Kennedy, there are ve minor revisions to three policies, including when a student is asked to identify himself or herself by an adult, they have to do so; all students must participate in emergency drills and be prepared; and students may be referred for mental health services. In addition, a distinction has been made for misconduct and consequences based on rst time offenses versus multiple offenses and specific acts of misconduct have been listed alphabetically.District to continue its battle with state PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD CENTRAL PINELLAS CHAMBER NotebookMildred Helms Elementary authorized as an International Baccalaureate schoolLARGO Mildred Helms Elementary has earned the distinction of being named an International Baccalaureate authorized World IB School for the Primary Years Programme.

10A Outdoors Leader, May 17, 2018Summer is upon us and it won't be long before anglers and sh alike begin to feel the heat. It's time to get out early in order to maximize your opportunities. That rst hour of safe light before the sun rises can be spectacular. If you are tarpon shing, this is when you will nd schools of sh laying so close to the surface that their tails look like sickles slicing through the waters The beach tarpon migration is in full swing. Each day will have more and more fish traveling through our area as they begin to form spawning aggregations. To hook up, stage your boat a cast length away from the approaching fish. Cast pinfish, pumpkin seeds, thread ns and pass crabs either free-lined or suspended underneath a oat. This weekend's new moon outgoing tides will have the crabs ushing out of the bays. Look for the tarpon to stage up heavily at pass bridges and the 90-foot hole at Egmont Key. Drift live crabs with the tide near the surface or slightly weighted with a split shot for best results. Catch and release snook shing is excellent this time of year, and these big fish can be targeted both day and night. The snook bite should be good on both the incoming and outgoing tides this weekend. Target pass shoals and jetties for some trophy-sized snook. Live grass grunts or pin sh are big sh baits. You can either free-line them right close to the structure or weight them on the bottom just off the rocks. Use 30or 40 pound leaders so the fish can be landed quickly and released unharmed. Offshore waters have been crystal clear recently. Fishing for mangrove snapper and kingfish can be tricky in these conditions. However, amberjack don't seem to be too leader shy. Schools of amberjack can be found holding over wrecks in 70 to 100 feet of water. Chumming with live pilchards can really re these sh up. Other live bait options would be pin sh and fresh-caught thread n herring. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com. To get a sh photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial @TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.The early bird catches the shThe beginnings of a butter yPhotos by JIM LAYFIELDShown in the three photos are the life cycles of a butter y that was photographed in a Largo yard. Starting around March, butter y gardeners in the area begin to see the rst step of a four-stage process in a butter yÂ’s life cycle. The monarch butter y, for example, lays a single egg slightly larger than a grain of sand underneath the leaf of a milkweed plant, top left. Milkweed is the only plant a monarch will lay its eggs on. In four days, the egg will hatch and the second step begins. A caterpillar (larva) emerges, ranging from .08 to .25 of an inch in length. For about 14 days, the caterpillar will devour the milkweed and grow to maturity at about 1.75 inches in length. The caterpillar will then attach itself to a horizontal object such as a leaf or limb, or perhaps a birdbath or lawn chair in the yard. Hanging in a Â“JÂ” shape, the caterpillar will shed its skin and encase itself in a green exoskeleton; now the third step, the chrysalis stage begins. Inside the chrysalis, the caterpillar will form into a butter y and emerge after about two weeks. It will hang upside down apping its wings occasionally to dry them and to pump uids into them so they will stiffen for ight. After two to three hours, the butter y will take ight, and the fourth step, adulthood, begins. Fish TalesCapt.

PETERSBURG Boat host volunteers are currently being sought for the sixth annual Boat Kids Event, set for Saturday, May 19. Every year a group of local business leaders and boating enthusiasts pool their resources to provide special needs individuals and their families with a fun lled day trip aboard a caravan of boats to Caladesi Island. Organizers invite those in the community to get involved by either becoming a boat host or by becoming a sponsor of the event. Boat hosts provide their own boat and transport a family for the day, navigating from the Dunedin Marina to Caladesi Island, helping their guests enjoy the day on the water. Event organizers also are seeking those interested in making a donation or becoming an event sponsor. Supplies such as T-shirts, food, beverages, paper products and sunscreen are needed. Boat Kids was organized to initiate and provide the opportunity for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and developmental disabilities, and their families/guardians to interact with one another in a sports outing event. The goal is to help reduce anxiety and help learn different ways of expressing feelings and relating to others in a safe and natural outdoor environment under close supervision.

All Ballet Nacional de Cuba to perform Â‘GiselleÂ’ at Straz CenterTAMPA Â– Acclaimed ballet powerhouse Ballet Nacional de Cuba will present Alicia AlonsoÂ’s renowned staging of Â“GiselleÂ” Wednesday, May 23, 8 p.m., in Carol Morsani Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $29.75. Call 813-229-7827 or visit strazcenter.org. The company, under the artistic direction of Alonso, legendary prima ballerina, last performed in Tampa at the Straz Center in October 2003. Founded by Alonso, Ballet Nacional de Cuba stands as the preeminent international cultural export of the island country. Technically awless with an ineffable style born of the unique, multi-cultural in uences of CubaÂ’s heritage, Ballet Nacional de Cuba performs unlike any classical ballet company in the world. The company ascended to the high order of international ballet companies and continues to excite audiences as one of the greatest classical dance companies in the world. Blending contemporary Cuban technique with classical lines and the duende captured by some of the most expressive dancers in the world, the company will present AlonsoÂ’s unforgettable and enthralling staging of Â“Giselle,Â” set to Adolphe AdamÂ’s haunting score. The Straz Center performance will be one of only four engagements in the United States in 2018, including The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the historic Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. Alonso began her training in Havana and later studied at the esteemed School of American Ballet in New York City. One of the enduring legends of George BalanchineÂ’s early crop of young dancers, AlonsoÂ’s signature role in Â“GiselleÂ” launched her to stardom. Her interpretations in such ballets as Agnes DeMilleÂ’s Â“Fall River Legend,Â” Antony TudorÂ’s Â“UndertowÂ” and BalanchineÂ’s Â“Theme and VariationsÂ” galvanized her career as a riveting dramatic dancer with pristine technical execution. In 1948, Alonso returned to Cuba to found her own company, the Alicia Alonso Ballet Company, which became Ballet Nacional de Cuba, the countryÂ’s signature ballet company. Alonso retired from the stage in 1995, after performing her work Â“The Butter y.Â” She was 75. She continues to direct Ballet Nacional de Cuba and is regarded as one of the greatest ballet dancers in history.

W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $30.50. Call 813229-7827 or visit strazcenter.org. With an ancestry stretching back to Ireland and a current home squarely in the Mississippi hills, McNally is the right sooty-winged angel to deliver the lilting blues-Americana message of Â“Black Irish,Â” her latest hit album. Part Muddy Waters and part Emmylou Harris, McNally doesnÂ’t just play music Â– she becomes it. Â“Black IrishÂ” is McNallyÂ’s most personal project yet, speaking to the power of connection and the power of music to create it and to re ect it. The kickoff track Â“You Made Me Feel for YouÂ” was written by her producer, Americana icon Rodney Crowell, and serves as a metaphor for their collaboration Â– how his particular understanding of her unique gifts pulled out the career-de ning album many have been waiting for since she came on the scene. The album concept began in 2013, as she was going through what she calls Â“a miserable divorce,Â” raising her daughter Maeve, and nursing her terminally ill mother Maureen. Her parents had relocated to Holly Springs, Mississippi, and McNally moved in, caring for her mom until her death in 2015. Â“I had no vim or vigor in me for a couple of years,Â” she admits in a biographical sketch provided by Compass Records. What saved her was her email relationship with Crowell, whoÂ’d been talking about producing her since 2012. He wrote in the liner notes for Â“Black IrishÂ” that their musical connection was immediate, describing McNally as Â“this dark-eyed beauty who wrote grown-up songs, played a pretty mean Fender Stratocaster and, at times, sounded a lot like Jesse Mae Hemphill. From our rst meeting, I couldnÂ’t shake the feeling that I was the right man for the job of shepherding the next Shannon McNally record into existence.Â” It wasnÂ’t easy. Too depressed to write, McNally recorded a favorite Emmylou Harris song on her laptop and worked up the nerve to email it to him. With lines like Â“ThereÂ’s a river of darkness in my blood,Â” Â“Prayer in Open DÂ” spoke to pain she couldnÂ’t verbalize. Â“And he called me back and said, Â‘ThatÂ’s gorgeous, you were meant to do that song. Do more.Â” That was all she needed. Â“We started this really wonderful thing of just lobbing song titles back and forth,Â” McNally said. Â“And I just sat at that table and learned about a dozen tunes, my favorite covers, anything to spark a re in this really dark turn.Â” She co-wrote three of the albumÂ’s 12 songs Â– one with producer Crowell, who also penned two more for her. The rest include personal favorites such as Stevie WonderÂ’s Â“I AinÂ’t Gonna Stand For It,Â” Robbie RobertsonÂ’s Â“It Makes No Difference,Â” and J.J. CaleÂ’s Â“Low Rider.Â” The result is an album that stands with the best of classic vocal interpreters Â– artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Maria Muldaur. Â“I just love great songs,Â” McNally said. Â“IÂ’m inspired by Willie Nelson, Muddy Waters, Emmylou Harris, Bill Withers, Mavis Staples. None of them hesitate to sing any song they feel like singing, even if they didnÂ’t write it. I think great songs need to be spotlighted, they need to recycle back up into the consciousness.Â” Sponsored by Rock Brothers Brewing, Club Jaeb transforms the Straz CenterÂ’s Jaeb Theater into an intimate music space featuring folk, Americana, alternative, country and other Â“hand-picked music that matters.Â” Rock Brothers Brewing will provide tastings of a special brew prepared exclusively for Club Jaeb audience members.

Van Zandt has produced albums for Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Gary U.S. Bonds, Darlene Love, Ronnie Spector, Demolition 23 and Majek Fashek. After creating the Â“Jersey ShoreÂ” sound with the Asbury Jukes, Van Zandt became a founding member of Bruce SpringsteenÂ’s E Street Band and went on to become a successful solo artist in his own right, recording and performing solo with his band, Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. In 2017, he released his rst new album in more than 15 years. Â“Soul reÂ” is a return to Little StevenÂ’s rhythm and blues roots. The album sees the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer revisiting songs that span the length of his career, focusing directly on the hugely influential Â“soul hornsmeet-rock Â‘nÂ’ roll guitarsÂ” approach he first pioneered on Southside Johnny and the Asbury JukesÂ’ classic rst three albums. Â“SoulfireÂ” has quickly drawn rapturous applause from fans and critics alike. Â“SoulfireÂ” was arranged and produced by Van Zandt at his own Renegade Studios in New York City. He is known around the world for his utterly personal songwriting and an ambitious adventurousness that has fueled much of his creative output these past two decades. In addition to his ongoing role as a touring and recording member of The E Street Band, Van Zandt has also expanded his artistic parameters to include landmark work as an actor on Â“The SopranosÂ” and Â“LilyhammerÂ” as well as host, historian, and rock Â‘nÂ’ roll advocate on Sirius XMÂ’s one-and-only Â“Little StevenÂ’s Underground Garage.Â” Van Zandt has also expanded his musical boundaries to include composing the score for all three seasons of Â“LilyhammerÂ” and additional work as producer and songwriter, lending his distinctive craft to records from an array of international garage rockers.Image courtesy of BIG HASSLELittle Steven and The Disciples of Soul, set to perform May 19 at Capitol Theatre, are touring in support of the 2017 album Â“Soul re.Â” Bubble Guppies show to visit StrazTAMPA Â– VStar Entertainment Group, Nickelodeon and Koba Productions will present Â“Bubble Guppies Live: Ready to RockÂ” Saturday, May 19, 2 and 6 p.m., in Carol Morsani Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N.

(Candice Bergen) is still working through a decades-old divorce. CarolÂ’s (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. Four lifelong friendsÂ’ lives are turned upside down to hilarious ends when their book club tackles the infamous Â“Fifty Shades of Grey.Â” From discovering new romance to rekindling old flames, they inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Â‘On Chesil BeachÂ’Genre: Drama Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson and Samuel West Director: Dominic Cooke Rated: R Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the lm explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. Â‘Pope Francis Â– A Man of his WordÂ’Genre: Documentary Director: Wim Wenders Rated: PG Wim WendersÂ’ new documentary, Â“Pope Francis A Man of His Word,Â” is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The popeÂ’s ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to todayÂ’s global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace.Â‘First ReformedÂ’Genre: Thriller Cast: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried and Cedric Kyles Director: Paul Schrader Rated: R Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong ock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman nds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he nds redemption in an act of grandiose violence.

Entertainment 5B Leader, May 17, 2018CLEARWATER Â– Grammy nominated multi-platinum selling Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will take the stage Sunday, May 27, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. According to a press release from Artisan Agency, 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo DaddyÂ’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Since its formation in the early 1990s in Ventura, California, the band has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average more than 150 shows a year while simultaneously producing a sizable catalog of recorded music with sales of over 2 million albums to date. Early on, during their legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they reminded the world Â– in the midst of the grunge era no less Â– that it was still cool to swing. The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and Dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture. Big Bad Voodoo DaddyÂ’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris on lead vocals and guitar, Kurt Sodergren on drums, Dirk Shumaker on double bass and vocals, Andy Rowley on baritone saxophone and vocals, Glen Â“The KidÂ” Marhevka on trumpet, Karl Hunter on saxophones and clarinet and Joshua Levy on piano. Levy also serves as the bandÂ’s arranger. Big Bad Voodoo DaddyÂ’s efforts to promote and revitalize swing music have taken shape as much more than a simple tribute. Taking inspiration from the creators of this uniquely American art form, the bandÂ’s original horn-infused music and legendary high energy show introduces the genre to a new and younger generation while remaining cognizant and respectful of the musicÂ’s rich legacy. Big Bad Voodoo DaddyÂ’s first phase of stardom featured an appearance in the 1996 indie lm Â“Swingers,Â” a movie that not only launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, but introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their Los Angeles base. The bandÂ’s music has appeared in countless lms and television shows, including Â“The Wild,Â” Â“Despicable Me,Â” Â“Phineas & Ferb,Â” Â“Friends,Â” Â“Third Rock from the Sun,Â” Â“Ally McBealÂ” and Â“So You Think You Can Dance.Â” They have appeared live on Â“Dancing with the Stars,Â” Â“Late Night with Conan OÂ’Brien,Â” Â“NBCÂ’s Christmas in Rockefeller CenterÂ” and the MacyÂ’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in addition to seven appearances on Â“The Tonight Show with Jay LenoÂ” and the Super Bowl XXXIII Halftime Show. The band has also appeared as special guests with many of the countryÂ’s most distinguished symphony orchestras, and has performed for three U.S. presidents. After 25 years, 11 records, more than 2,800 live shows, and countless appearances in lm and television, the members of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are showing no signs of slowing down. They are looking forward to celebrating the bandÂ’s 25th anniversary in 2018. The bandÂ’s unique take on American swing and jazz music has thrilled audiences around the world with hit songs such as Â“I Wanna Be Like You,Â” Â“Mr. Pinstripe Suit,Â” Â“Why Me,Â” Â“You & Me & The Bottle Makes 3 TonightÂ” and more. Â“Louie, Louie, Louie,Â” the bandÂ’s 2017 release, is a rousing celebration of music legends Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan and Louis Prima. These remarkable artists revolutionized American music and popular culture and set the standard for what great entertainment and artistic expression could be. Bandleader and vocalist Scotty Morris says, Â“We really want people to know about these great men that have so deeply in uenced us, and perhaps help spark a new creative interest in them and their music,Â” said Morris is a press release. Â“ItÂ’s important to educate people Â– if artists donÂ’t continue to spread the word, this music is going to go away and thatÂ’s something we canÂ’t afford to have happen.Â” For information on the band, visit www.bbvd.com.
