I really do think so. This project is something I’ve really had a passion for.” By CHRIS GEORGE  Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO F or about 20 years, Mickey Krause has suffered from a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in the lungs and heart called pulmonary hypertension. It causes shortness of breath, fatigue and an enlarged heart, and, in most cases, leads to congestive heart failure. So when the 66-year-old Largo resident says she has put all of her heart into breathing life into a derelict building on Clearwater-Largo Road, she means it. By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersThe upcoming Atlantic hurricane season could be a busy one with 10-16 named storms, ve-nine hurricanes and one-four major hurricanes, Category 3 or above. Neil Jacobs, assistant secretary of commerce for environmental observation and prediction, revealed NOAA's 2018 Hurricane Outlook on May 24. The Climate Prediction Center is giving a 75 percent chance that the season will be nearor above-normal. Forecasters predict a 40 percent chance of a nearnormal season, 35 percent chance of an above-normal season and a 25 percent chance of a below-normal season. An average season, which runs from June 1-Nov. 30, has 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. The first named storm of the season, Alberto, formed the morning of May 25. The message from officials was to prepare now regardless.Have a plan, prepare nowSally Bishop, director of Pinellas County Emergency Management, agrees and advises residents not to concentrate too much on predictions. "I don't pay a lot of attention to predictions," she said. "I get ready for the one." Because regardless of how many hurricanes may form, "it only takes one hurricane hitting in your area to make it a bad season," she said. Bishop, who has led Emergency Management since 2008 and is retiring June 1, has a message for residents. "Have a plan," she said. "Be ready to carry out that plan." Bishop said 3 million Floridians evacuated that didn't need to during Hurricane Irma, mostly because they didn't have a plan and at the last minute decided that they would have better protection in a shelter. Hurricane shelters are a place to go as a last resort. Every effort should be made to nd another safe place, she said.

2A County Leader, May 31, 2018Two arrested after carjacking ends in Madeira Beach car crashST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies arrested two men May 24 after a carjacking in St. Petersburg and a car crash in Madeira Beach. According to deputies, the victim 52-year-old Christian Jensen of Largo, was working as a car salesman at Crown Mitsubishi, 5500 34th St. N., when he agreed to take an unknown male subject on a test drive in a maroon 2012 Cadillac CTS about 2:25 p.m. During the test drive, the suspect pointed a handgun at Jensen and ordered him to get out of the car near the intersection of 54th Avenue North and 37th Street North. The victim exited the vehicle and watched as the suspect drove off in the Cadillac, westbound on 54th Avenue North. Deputies responded and were searching the area for the stolen vehicle when citizens reported a red Cadillac driving recklessly on Gulf Boulevard in Madeira Beach. A deputy in his cruiser traveling northbound on Gulf Boulevard saw the stolen Cadillac driving recklessly. The Cadillac passed the deputy southbound on Gulf Boulevard, driving aggressively and speeding. When the deputy made a U-turn, he lost sight of the vehicle. Minutes later, about 3:17 p.m., deputies were noti ed of a crash involving a Cadillac that struck a palm tree near 14048 Gulf Blvd., Madeira Beach. When deputies arrived at the crash scene, they were informed by witnesses that two male subjects had exited the Cadillac and ed the scene on foot. Deputies set a perimeter and apprehended 30-year-old Robert Gajate of Pinellas Park, who was found near the scene of the crash. Witnesses positively identified Gajate as the driver and the suspect who stole the Cadillac. Treasure Island police officers located the passenger, 25-year-old George Olson also of Pinellas Park. Deputies say Olson was in possession of crack cocaine and a handgun that was identi ed as the gun used in the carjacking. Deputies learned that the gun was reported stolen out of Pinellas County in 2003. When deputies interviewed Gajate he admitted to stealing the Cadillac and picking Olson up afterwards. Gajate informed deputies he was released from prison on April 9, 2018, for grand theft auto. Gajate and Olson were both arrested and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Gajate was charged with one count of armed carjacking, one count of grand theft auto, one count of felon in possession of a firearm, one count of reckless driving with property damage, one count of leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and one count of driving while license suspended or revoked. Bail was set at $170,650. Olson was charged with one count of felon in possession of rearm and one count of possession of a controlled substance (crack cocaine). Bail was set at $22,000.Largo man, 20, accused of sexual battery on minorLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives arrested a 20-year-old Largo man about 12:30 p.m. May 21 on sexual battery charges after he had inappropriate sexual activity with a 12-year-old girl. According to a press release from the sheriff's of ce, the crime occurred in June 2017 at a private residence in Pinellas County. Detectives say that the girl was in the care of Anthony Keon Wilson when the inappropriate activity occurred. The victim, who is now age 13, was admitted to a local hospital March 12 after she complained of stomach pains. She was diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease. Hospital staff reported the diagnosis to the Florida Abuse Hotline. The Sheriff's Child Protective investigators responded to the victim's residence. The victim told investigators that she was sexually battered by Wilson during the summer of 2017. Sheriff's detectives then took over the investigation. They interviewed Wilson at the Sheriff's Administration Building in Largo where he reportedly admitted to having sexual intercourse with the victim one time. Detectives say he blamed the victim for "coming on to him." Wilson was transported to the county jail and charged with sexual battery (familial authority). No bail was set as of the morning of May 22.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Police Beat For their service and sacri cesA few hundred people, including many Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council, put ags on the headstones of all the veterans May 26.

People who live in a mobile home in Pinellas regardless of zone must evacuate. To determine your evacuation level, visit apps/knowyourzone/ or call 727464-3800. To help determine if your home is safe, residents can visit the property appraiser's website,, and use the "Search Our Database" link to look up their property to see when it was built. Properties constructed in 2001 or later were built to the new building codes and unless they are in disrepair should withstand winds up to 120 mph. Residences built before 2001 that have been hurricane-hardened also can be safe places to weather the storm. The most important thing is to determine your safe place and plan accordingly. If you live in an evacuation or flood zone, be prepared to leave as soon as an order is given. If you plan to leave regardless of an evacuation order, do so early to leave the roads open for those who must go. Helping people understand the risks of a direct hit from a major hurricane is something Bishop has worked on throughout her 32 years in emergency management. It is frustrating to her to hear people talk about going through a hurricane in Pinellas County. "Unless you lived here in 1921, you've not lived through a direct hit," she said. She says people are reluctant to believe bad things can happen to them, so many don't take preparedness seriously. The Storm Surge Protection app, www. stormsurgeprotector/index.html, was developed to help show people their risk if a hurricane were to hit. Storm surge is the biggest danger from a hurricane, especially to those who live on the barrier islands. Along with planning and training, public education has been a big part of Bishop's work. To that end, her department developed a "Just in Time" tool called Ready Pinellas, which can be downloaded from the Apple App store or Google Play. The app was designed to have all the information residents need to prepare in one place. And, residents can get a wealth of information in the All Hazard Guide, which is available in print and online at www.pinellascounty. org/emergency/allhazardguide. htm. Personal preparedness and a community that understands what a difference everyone makes in government's ability to respond if a disaster, such as a hurricane, strikes is important. And with "preparedness comes peace of mind," Bishop said. She urges everyone to prepare and remember Pinellas got lucky with Hurricane Irma last year when it weakened and passed to the east instead of making a direct hit as a Category 3 with 15-foot storm surge. The county had widespread power outages and lots of debris, but it could have been much worse. "We were blessed not to get what we prepared for," she said.

Photos by CHRIS GEORGEArt Lovers Place, at 1300 Clearwater-Largo Road N., is an artist's painting studio, gallery and event center geared toward seni ors, the disabled and veterans. "It (art) helped keep me alive. I really do think so," she said. "This project is something I've really had a passion for, and most of my life I haven't had anything that I was really passionate about." After nearly four years, that passion fueled by her love of art and belief in its ability to heal led to the February opening of Art Lovers Place, a nonpro t art studio and gallery geared toward others like her seniors, the disabled or veterans who would bene t from the therapeutic aspects that painting can provide. "I took a building that was just an eyesore and I made it into something really fun," said Krause, referring to the property most people probably knew as the Betty Boop building because it had a large painting of the cartoon character sitting in a martini glass on the front of it.Finding purpose in artThe long road to the grand opening was hardly fun, however. In 1998, Krause was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension caused by a hole in her heart when she was born, but wasn't discovered until she was 26. She had two open-heart surgeries to repair it, but still lived with its aftermath high pressure in her pulmonary arteries. She decided to move to Florida and went on disability, but the 50-year-old wasn't sure what path to take the rest of her life. Art was the answer. She had dabbled with painting earlier in life, but decided to get serious by taking workshops from professional artists. In 2007, she attended the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota for three semesters, but life would intercede. She withdrew to help out in a family business in Palm Harbor, where she was part owner of the Lake Tarpon Resort and Dockside Sports Bar & Grille. She helped run the 98-room hotel and restaurant, but the daily grind left her little time or energy to paint. So, she changed course again in 2013 when she sold her stake in the business. Not long after, she joined the Largo Art Association, which brings artists together weekly at the Largo Community Center. The group rekindled her love for painting and inspired her next move. "We were all kind of in the same boat, where at home you get really distracted when you're trying to paint and our art group only meets on Fridays for four hours," she said. "I thought, Gee, wouldn't it be nice to have a place where people could gather together and shoot the breeze and paint and drink and eat.'"A blank canvasKrause wasted no time pursuing her dream. She took out a reverse mortgage on her home, began fundraising and started looking for the right spot. Betty Boop in the heart of the ClearwaterLargo Road Redevelopment District would eventually catch her eye in June 2014. "This one was a total wreck. It had no roof in the back and had been vacant for years," she said. "It was a derelict building." Despite its flaws, Krause liked the 1,500-square-foot property because it sat on a double lot and was a blank canvas. "I just could envision what a neat space this could be. My dad said, The worse it is, the better you like it,'" she said with a chuckle. It was going to take a lot of work and fundraising to turn her vision into reality. "There were no walls, no electricity, no running water, nothing. Down to the studs," she said. It contained so many problems, including plenty of asbestos, that some architects and contractors said it should be just be torn down. Some, however, said it could be salvaged, which is what Krause spent the next three years and seven months doing, spending more than $70,000 of her own money in the process. The nal year posed the biggest challenge when she suffered a blood clot and spent nearly two weeks at Largo Medical Center. She persisted, however, and after a final coat of pink paint, she nally brought her dream to fruition. "It was such a relief. Such a relief to nally get opened," she said. "When I got my certi cate of occupancy from the city, that was a big day." Artist Jim Melton, who met Krause through the Largo Art Association, said the work she has done is nothing short of remarkable. "She's done a really fabulous job with the interior and the exterior, bringing it from a derelict place to a top-notch enjoyable environment," said Melton, who is one of three resident artists at Art Lovers Place.A place to escapeMelton said the studio is special not only because of the work Krause has done, but because it is one of few locations in the area that allows artists to focus on their work. "I like to come here because I don't have the distractions here that I have at home," he said. " There's a million things there to distract me, where here it's just paint." Krause hopes to attract about six more resident artists to fill up the center, but she said, for a small annual fee, anyone can drop in and paint for an afternoon. She said they also will be holding classes where teachers will offer step-by-step instructions and participants will leave with their work. In fact, as a result of a $5,000 grant she received from the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, she already has several such classes lined up for people who suffer from the disease. For those who are disabled, she said, painting offers something that doctors and medicine can't provide. "You're getting in touch with your creativity," she said. "It's stress reducing. You are around like-minded people with the art and the creation of it."Looking aheadThe center may be up and running, but Krause said her next challenge is learning how to best utilize the space to help seniors, the disabled or veterans. She is working to build relationships with nonpro ts and nursing homes and would like to set up special days and programs just for veterans, but she needs help, she says. She is looking for volunteers to form an advisory committee to design ideas and methods to implement them. She also needs money to make it happen, so she has actively sought out grants and has continued to fund raise online. All the work has meant she hasn't been able to do any of her own painting. "I haven't done a full-size painting in a couple of years, because I'm so inundated with everything," she said. But she's not frustrated because her new art center has provided plenty of creative stimulation. "This whole project has been like one big artwork," she said. "One big art installation." HURRICANE, from page 1A ART LOVERS, from page 1ASee LARGO, page 5A Mickey Krause, founder and executive director of Art Lovers Place, shows off a painting by her mother, who went back to school when she was in her mid-50s and got her ne arts degree at 62. The painting is one of many works that hang on the walls throughout the entire building.

Schools 7A Leader, May 31, 2018 NotebookSeniors honored during AVID pinning ceremony at LHSLARGO Graduating seniors who participated in the Advancement Via Individual Determination program were recently honored in a pinning ceremony. The event was held at Largo High School with 181 seniors receiving pins. School Board Chairperson Renee Flowers addressed the graduates and Kortney Mattox, an Osceola Fundamental High senior, was the student speaker. In addition to the students receiving their AVID pins, Regina Baker of Oak Grove Middle School was named the AVID Middle School Teacher of the Year. Nicole Darbois of Boca Ciega was named the AVID High School Teacher of the year. To participate in the ceremony, seniors had to be in the program for at least two years and have taken at least three AP and/or Dual Enrollment classes and four weighted classes during their high school career. A 3.0 or better unweighted GPA had to be maintained and the senior must have been accepted to a four-year university or the military. Participation in extracurricular activities was required and 25 hours of community services had to be completed. AVID is a program that takes students with the potential and determination to go to college and places them in the rigorous courses required to get into a four-year university. In the AVID elective course, students are taught the skill sets necessary to be successful in those rigorous courses. These skills include solid note taking, organization, public speaking and responsibility.Two Pinellas high schools rank in the top 100 in Florida Palm Harbor University High School and Osceola Fundamental High School were featured in the U.S. News and World Report's annual list of best high schools.

For the rst time in its 17-year history, Stetson's Dispute Resolution Board achieved a perfect four-forfour record of advancing to nationals in all four dispute resolution competitions sponsored by the ABA. Stetson University College of Law is the rst school to achieve this distinction. This year, more than 1,300 students from 156 law schools participated in one or more of the competitions sponsored by the ABA Law Student Division. The competitions represent all the areas in which the Dispute Resolution Board competes: arbitration, client counseling, and negotiation, in addition to the Moot Court Board competing in the national appellate advocacy competition. Stetson Law students Jahanna Azarian and Vanessa Denk nished as national semi nalists at the national client counseling competition and placed rst at the regional competition. Students Allison Belanger and Christina Huckfeldt nished as national semi nalists in the national negotiation competition after being finalists at the regional competition. Students Max Brown, Caroline Garrity, Olivia Mejido and Meghan Sullivan placed first at the regional arbitration competition. Students Julia Alley and Mark Joseph nished rst at the regional mediation competition. "We are delighted to be recognized by the preeminent organization of our nation's lawyers. Importantly, these skills are the foundation on which our students will build their professional careers to effectively represent clients and advocate for our communities," Stetson Law Dean and Professor of Law Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz told the ABA.USF selected to host summitTAMPA The U.K.-based Times Higher Education will partner with the University of South Florida to hold its annual Young Universities Summit in Tampa June 5-7. Previously held in Barcelona, Spain, and Brisbane, Australia, among other international cities, this year's three-day event marks the rst time a university in North America will host the summit.

8A Viewpoints Leader, May 31, 2018Scot Brantley was one of my favorite football players to cover during my years as a sports writer. That goes back to his days as a ferocious linebacker at Ocala Forest High School and later with the Florida Gators and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His trademark southern drawl came through when he co-hosted a sports talk show in Tampa after he nally quit football. He always has been as real as a person can be. That's why it is especially painful to hear that at age 60, the man I knew is likely headed down a road from which there presently is no return. In an interview with HBO sports, his wife, Mary, said Scot has Alzheimer's disease. That's not even the worst of it though. She says the National Football League has denied his claim for assistance from the settlement it reached after retired players began reporting abnormally high rates of brain-related diseases and other ailments. A study showed that compared to the rest of the U.S., NFL players are three times more likely to die from neurodegenerative diseases and four times more likely to die from Alzheimer's or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Lou Gehrig's disease. There is no telling how many concussions Brantley endured from high school through seven years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 1979, Brantley took a knee to the head and was knocked unconscious in Florida's opening home game of the season. He never played another down for the Gators. He was advised to quit football then but received another medical diagnosis that convinced him and the NFL that he would be OK. The league and players weren't knowledgeable about long-term effects from head injuries then, certainly not to the degree we see today. Brantley kept on delivering his signature hard hits, and he said in interviews that he gured headaches and concussions were just part of the game. You know what else should be part of the game? How about some compassion. Players like Scot Brantley helped make the NFL into the multibillion enterprise it is today. The league owes him and all those former players with similar problems compassion, care, and money. I was part of a team at the Tampa Tribune and WFLA-News Channel 8 in 2010 that did a series we called "Broken Bucs." We sought to nd as many players from the 1979 division championship team that we could to see how they were doing years later. It was the rst time any media outlet had undertaken such a project on a single team. One of my tasks was to find Jerry Eckwood, who was a standout running back on that team. I ew to Nashville, where he was staying in assisted living. He had been homeless for a while and was battling both physical pain and mental deterioration. He could talk lucidly one minute, then go into a rambling, nonsensical paranoid delusion the next. He had suffered multiple concussions as a player. Eckwood eventually did get some assistance from the NFL, but the game can never adequately replace what it took from players like him and Scot Brantley. In reporting that series, we held several meetings with former Bucs at a North Tampa hotel. Many told similar stories of being turned down for injury claims. "You know what they call it, right?" former quarterback John Reaves said. "Delay, deny and hope you die." Reaves died last year at age 67. In a 2013 interview with the Tampa Bay Times, Brantley talked about his failing memory and admitted he had no idea how many concussions he might have suffered over the years. Who knows how that might have changed if he had heeded the advice to give up football while he was still with the Gators. All I know is, a guy I like and respect is ghting the battle of his life, and I believe football is the reason why. I enjoy watching football as much as anyone, but no game is worth the price too many are paying. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. The recent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle was a splendid and badly-needed event in this troubled world of ours. Harry and his bride seem to be crazy about each other, and by all accounts they are admirable human beings. You can't get enough of such people, in any land or era. The entire wedding came off with hardly a hitch. Any special event that doesn't have at least one hitch is a rarity. Life has two kinds of people: (1) those who pray to Hymen, the Greek god of marriage, that no untoward incidents will occur during a wedding, and (2) those who are delighted when the bridegroom's alcoholic uncle stands up and starts singing "Me and Bobby McGee" just before the couple become of cially connubialized. I have undergone connubialization twice, once during the Eisenhower years and once when Richard Nixon was president and preparing to form his plumbing company. I don't plan any more connubing, but I've spent the past 15 years in cozy cahoots with a gorgeous blonde. Not long after I met her, she said "Let's fly to England and visit Windsor Castle. I've been there before, and I believe you'd like it just as much as I do." So off we went, and she was right. Perhaps we'll visit Windsor again, at the next royal wedding. However, the odds are strong we'll stay home and just enjoy the TV coverage. Do you know exactly when the rst wedding in history took place? Of course you don't. Nor do I. I'll bet it occurred when a cave-dwelling tribe, the Five-Skins, defeated their enemies, the Tarps. A Five-Skin warrior spied a shapely Tarp woman and said, "You be mine, or I kill you." She replied, "Done deal, dude." And they waltzed off together. Marriage (the whole institution) is also clouded in history. Indications are that the Egyptians had the biggest hand in it. When the pickings got slim, brothers sometimes married their sisters. Which immediately made divorce impossible, because how does a woman divorce her brother? As time passed, weddings and marriages got ever so complicated, especially after religion stuck its nose into the deal. Some priest came up with the notion that if a god (and there were many of them hanging around) could be made a member of the wedding, odds were stronger that the marriage would last. Today that belief is still sort of adhered to, except in Las Vegas and similar spiritual wastelands. Out there a notary public performs the service, collects a fee, gives part of it to a resident witness, and sends the couple on their way. Average time expended: 14 minutes. A tradition of most marriages is the honeymoon. Its name comes from cultures that provided the newlyweds with a beverage containing honey. They were given enough to last them for an entire lunar cycle, roughly 30 days. Thus, the honeymoon. Hollywood's screenwriters rely heavily on weddings in their plots. If you or I were given 10 bucks for every movie wedding shown in the past 50 years we could buy every house in Belleair. Another movie plot fixture is Christmas, with New Year's Eve close behind. Are you opposed to gambling? Then don't get married. Marriage is probably the biggest gamble a couple can take. Statistics tell us that close to half of all marriages end in divorce. However, on the plus side, few examples of joy exceed that of two persons who tie the knot and share their love with each other all the way from their "I do" to the moment, years later, when their golden lifetime airliner lifts off the runway and carries them into the sunset. Final note on last week's nuptials: the impassioned sermon by the Most Rev. Michael Curry, head of the U.S. Episcopal Church, certainly livened things up. It caused the wedding to go 14 minutes overtime. It also brought frowns to the faces of a few British upper-crust crumbs. Poor darlings had not expected to be lectured by an African-American preacher from the colonies. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ is no perfect form of governmentThe 2015 Clearwater Charter Review Committee suggested that the Clearwater City Council consider starting a discussion on the subject of an executive/strong mayor form of government. This recommendation was not pursued by the city council, as was its prerogative, and by doing so, the current city manager/council form of government was endorsed. Several weeks ago, however, the city of Clearwater was approached by a group of individuals, many of whom are members of the Clearwater Downtown Partnership, to change the city's professional, stable, and long-standing city manager/council form of government to an "executive/strong mayor." The city charter allows the public to petition for a change to the charter, but those few who wanted a strong mayor in 2015 took no action to circulate a petition requiring such an election. Instead, believing the petition process being too burdensome for them, a letter was sent last month and a lobbying effort was begun to request that action be taken immediately by the City Council. After a discussion, the City Council formed a committee to draft a new city charter with an executive/strong mayor form of government in accordance with the request of this group. With a credentialed city manager form of government, the mayor is the presiding of cer of council meetings, is generally the city's representative at various events throughout the community, and signs of cial documents. He has no authority to hire city staff, nor does he control the day-to-day operations of the city and its employees. The professional city manager serves at the council's discretion. He administers projects and programs, prepares the budget for council consideration, serves as the council's chief adviser, and carries out council policies. His responsibilities are based on being nonpartisan and objective in working to implement the council's directions and operating the city. Most Florida cities have a city manager/council form of government similar to Clearwater's. With an executive/strong mayor, the City Council's authority is more limited. The mayor is the chief executive. He becomes the chief operating officer, and for this reason, many believe that the vision of one individual is easier to implement and possibly to in uence than that of a collective "city manager/council" form of government. The executive/strong mayor usually hires a chief of staff or administrator, not necessarily trained in municipal affairs, but rather one who is trusted and close to the mayor to assist. The mayor's and his administrator's authority is limited only by the limitations placed by the charter. Other items to consider include the following: What authority will the council have over the mayor's appointees? Will council members be elected by district or at-large? What will be the size of the city council? How will the mayor's veto power be determined? Will candidates for office have to win a majority or plurality of the vote? What will the mayor's salary be? Must the mayor implement the council's recommendations? Will there be any checks and balances on the mayor's authority? There is no perfect form of local government, and there is no guarantee that either form will better serve the interests of any city neighborhood, including the downtown business district. An executive/strong mayor may be the more convenient for some; but, there will always be those who question any decision which does not serve their personal interests. Moreover, as has happened in several Florida communities recently, partisanship may become more prevalent and divisive. As mayor of Clearwater, I have a responsibility to be fair in my presiding over City Council meetings and now in working with my colleagues, city staff, and others in helping residents consider the plans for an "executive/ strong mayor" form of government. I assure you that I will be; likewise, I will not presume that the desires of a few represent the will of the majority. In the months ahead, there may well be many exaggerations, but there should be no debate over the tireless, sel ess, nonpartisan, and professional work provided for decades by Clearwater's city manager/council government and its employees. This decision on an executive/strong mayor government should not be about what is bene cial to the downtown business community and its property owners or on what is in the best interests of a particular neighborhood or group. It and the votes in November must be based on what form of government best serves the residents of the city of Clearwater.

Outdoors 9A Leader, May 31, 2018Winter and spring traded places this year. As expected, the year started cold, turned unseasonably warm, and went back to cold again. The wind grew stiff, churning the seas into sloppy green fields of toppling white crests. No one knows if it was this strange weather that lured our local dolphins back into the Intracoastal Waterway from their winter haunts elsewhere. But dolphins have delighted boaters with unseasonably high, supernormal numbers all through April and May. As a rule, in the spring, the average number of dolphins seen in the vicinity of John's Pass is a dozen. Not this year. In April, that average doubled. In May, it doubled again, swelling to three-to-four times larger than the standard spring average! What it means is that the dolphins unleashed their "high social season" early and enthusiastically. The dolphin high social season is the time of year when dolphins are the most abundant in our local Intracoastal Waterway, which is in the warm months. That is, as the seas heat up, so do the dolphins. This year, the unseasonably high numbers of dolphins is visible in two ways. Boaters who thread along the winding Intracoastal Waterway come across numerous groups of dolphins along the way. The groups are usually small, no more than six-eight individuals. But the number of groups is higher than usual: super-normal. And, just as boaters encounter different groups of dolphins, dolphin groups also encounter each other. Sometimes they pass each other without pause. Sometimes they join together for a moment in greeting and continue on their respective ways. Sometimes they form a larger group and engage in some activity together. One of the most popular activities during the dolphin high social season is courtship. Courtship is particularly likely in very large dolphin gatherings, which is another way to see the unseasonably high numbers of dolphins this year. Gatherings of two or more dozen dolphins usually translate into a conspicuous form of courtship in which many males swirl around a female with great animation and shows of bravado. These "milling and willing" assemblies tend to be short-lived, lasting hours but sometimes days if the bulls' stamina is suf cient. Bulls primarily compete with each other for access to the female with displays of unity and strength. A classic display is when bonded bull buddies launch together through the water surface in perfect unison about 5 feet apart with extra bounce and energy the idea is to be noticed and intimidate others. The vitality of the display varies from hard to see to impossible to miss. If displays do not work to eliminate rivals, bulls may trade punches. Actually, given the dolphin cigarshaped anatomy, bulls trade bites and kicks. As in any serious competition, the bulls become more and more energized. As they do, their conspicuous courtship gestures give the coveted female many chances to observe, compare, and weigh her suitors for suitability. All that attention may also encourage her, subconsciously of course, to approach her most fertile phase more quickly. Whatever the reason, may the dolphin high social season continue to reach new heights. Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 20346, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The idea is to be noticed and intimidate others.Unfortunately, the weather continues to be a huge factor for any outdoor activity let alone being out on the water. The holiday weekend rainout was just the latest installment of what has been the soggiest May many can recall. If you're into patterns you might agree that we enjoyed a beautiful February, a bitter cold March, then we got back on track in April only to get rained out in May. Looks like June should be a great month for shing, right? Early morning stops at jetty rock piles have produced excellent action for a variety of species. Snook, redfish, and trout are the targets, however, Spanish mackerel, ounder and mangrove snapper are also readily taking the live baits. Free lining live pilchards against the rocks at the strong part of the tide is your best opportunity for hooking a snook, while lightly weighting your pilchard with a split shot and working the area just off the rocks will work better for the trout, reds and ounder. Redfish have been feeding well on the afternoon high tide. Big full moon tides will bring in enough water for the reds to get back underneath the mangroves where they can feed on crabs. Pitching cut pieces of lady sh or a weighted pilchard in the small openings between the branches will put your bait in the right spot. Tarpon have been migrating along area beaches in good numbers the past few days. With the full moon approaching the fish have been less into feeding and more into mating recently. Many of the fish will head offshore to spawn early next week, a few days after the full moon has passed we should start to see the fish return to the beaches looking to feed. The sh will be traveling both north and south after the full moon, making anchor shing your best option. Anchoring just outside the swim buoys is a pretty safe bet for a start; however, a more productive lane may be detected after sitting a while. Live pin sh and pumpkinseeds are great baits for this type of shing as they are very hardy and will swim down away from the oat. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail. com.

Tyson Wallerstein According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, more than 15,000 lion sh were recently removed from Florida waters thanks to several tournaments held across the state focused on targeting the invasive species. Five of those fish were tagged previously by FWC staff as part of the 2018 Lionfish Challenge, a removal incentive program that started May 19 on Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day. "This is an amazing showing for the fourth annual Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day weekend and surrounding events," said Jessica McCawley, director of FWC's Division of Marine Fisheries Management. "Lionfish were removed via tournaments and the FWC's incentive program, and the public got to learn rst-hand about lion sh and what they can do to help at festivals like the one in Perdido Key held by the FWC and Coast Watch Alliance, as well as various other partners." The Lionfish Challenge runs through Sept. 3. More than 200 people have already registered to participate in the statewide challenge, which rewards lion sh harvesters with prizes for their lionfish removals, tagged or not. The tagged lion sh component is new this year and includes cash prizes up to $5,000. Lion sh were tagged at 50 public arti cial reefs across the state. Harvesters who caught the five-tagged fish this weekend took home cash prizes up to $2,500 and non-cash prizes as well. All five-tagged fish were caught off Escambia County. Statewide lion sh event removal totals are as follows: 9,606 Lionfish World Championship Pensacola 4,056 Lionfish World Championship Pre-Tournament Pensacola 1,490 Lion Tamer Tournament Panama City Beach 231 Florida Skin Divers Association Lion sh Calcutta St. Petersburg Postponed Sebastian Lion sh Tournament Sebastian.

Amberjack, trigger sh harvest to close June 1The FWC reports that the recreational harvest of greater amberjack and gray trigger sh in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters will close June 1 and will remain closed through July 31, reopening Aug. 1. Seasonal harvest closures help conserve Florida's valuable greater amberjack and gray triggerfish populations and improve these sheries for the future.

Franklin, Wakulla, Taylor and Jefferson counties are excluded from this opening because they have their own season from April 1 through June 30 and Sept. 1 through Dec. 31. Monroe County is also excluded from this season because it follows the Atlantic state season.

Tickets start at $36.20. Call 800-745-3000 or visit ticket for tickets. For venue information, visit These dates mark Shania’s rst tour since “Rock This Country” back in 2015. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will run through the rest of the summer. Twain is a ve-time Grammy Award-winner and the reigning queen of country pop. With more than 90 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping $34.5 million, Twain remains the top-selling female country artist of all time. Her albums include her eponymous Platinum-selling 1993 debut, the Grammy Award-winning 1995 release “The Woman in Me,” “Come on Over,” the best-selling studio album in Soundscan history by a female artist in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time with over 40 million units sold worldwide, and “Up!,” Twain’s third consecutive diamond-selling album release. “I had to go through a lot in life to get to where I am,” Twain said in a biography provided by Universal Music Group. “I can actually say that I’m home. Optimism is what you hear.” Between 2015 and 2016, Twain recorded the 16 tracks that would be featured on “Now.” Recording sessions took place in Switzerland, the United States, England and the Bahamas. Twain took on the role of executive producer, co-producing with a team that included Ron Aniello, Matthew Koma, Jacquire King, and Jake Gosling. Implementing acoustic instruments like mandolin, banjo, percussion and guitar, the sonic palette carries what she refers to as “an organic thread” with “a bit of a retro sound.” Bastian Baker will open the show. The 26-year-old Swiss superstar was hand-selected by Twain to join her world tour. In addition to his opening set, Baker is slated to duet with Twain during the show. Baker, a platinum-selling recording artist, released new single “Love On Fire” along with a music video on May 4. He’s currently in the studio working on his next album. “Tomorrow May Not Be Better,” Baker’s certi ed platinum debut album, staked its claim at No. 3 on the charts only behind David Guetta and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Baker produced the entire project himself. He followed up with a pair of albums: “Too Old to Die Young” and “Facing Canyons.” Photo courtesy of BB GUN PRESSAmalie Arena welcomes Shania Twain June 2.

Entertainment 3B Leader, May 31, 2018 Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following lms opening in wide release:‘Action Point’Genre: Comedy and action Cast: Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Dan Bakkedahl, Matt Schulze, Eleanor Worthington-Cox, Johnny Pemberton, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Joshua Hoover, Conner McVicker and Eric Manaka Director: Tim Kirkby Rated: R Johnny Knoxville, everyone’s favorite daredevil, is back to his hilariously painful antics in the upcoming comedy “Action Point.” Knoxville stars as D.C., the crackpot owner of a low-rent, outof-control amusement park where the rides are designed with minimum safety for maximum fun. Just as D.C.’s estranged teenage daughter Boogie comes to visit, a corporate mega-park opens nearby and jeopardizes the future of Action Point. To save his beloved theme park and his relationship with his daughter, D.C. and his loony crew of mis ts risk everything to pull out all the stops – and stunts.‘Adrift’Genre: Drama and romance Cast: Aaron Kandell, Jordan Kandell and David Branson Smith Director: Baltasar Kormakur Rated: PG-13 Starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin, “Adrift” is based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them rst to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime. As the two avid sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Cla in) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to nd Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.‘American Animals’Genre: Drama and thriller Cast: Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, Jared Abrahamson, Ann Dowd and Udo Kier Director: Bart Layton Rated: R “American Animals” is the unbelievable but entirely true story of four young men who attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history. The film centers around two friends from the middle-class suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky. Spencer (Barry Keoghan) is determined to become an artist but feels he lacks the essential ingredient that unites all great artists – suffering. His closest friend, Warren (Evan Peters), has also been raised to believe that his life will be special, and that he will be unique in some way. But as they leave the suburbs for universities in the same town, the realities of adult life begin to dawn on them and with that, the realization that their lives may in fact never be important or special in any way. Determined to live lives that are out of the ordinary, they plan the brazen theft of some of the world’s most valuable books from the special collections room of Spencer’s college Library. Enlisting two more friends – accounting major Eric (Jared Abrahamson) and tness fanatic Chas (Blake Jenner) – and taking their cues from heist movies, the gang meticulously plots the theft and subsequent fence of the stolen artworks. Although some of the group begin to have second thoughts, they discover that the plan has seemingly taken on a life of its own. Unfolding from multiple perspectives, and innovatively incorporating the real-life gures at the heart of the story, writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter) takes the heist movie into bold new territory.‘Upgrade’Genre: Thriller Cast: Logan Marshall-Green, Rosco Campbell, Scott Michael Foster, Betty Gabriel and Harrison Gilbertson Director: Leigh Whannell Rated: R After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green) is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will “upgrade” his body. The cure – an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM – gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced, and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.
