City commissioners, acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, voted 7-0 to have city staff negotiate an agreement with Largo Central LLC for the Real Estate Development grant that was established for use in the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District.City sweetens deal for projectCommission approves estimated $1.7M incentive for downtown development By BRIAN GOFFTBN CorrespondentTREASURE ISLAND The mayors of Pinellas County's beach communities want to find a way to reclaim their power to restrict short-term rentals in their towns. The rst step will be to organize a roundtable discussion involving state legislators and others involved in the short-term rental business. The mayors who make up the Big-C, the Barrier Islands Government Council, have been railing against the state law that prevents them from having any say in how long or how often a person can rent his or her property in a residential area. The mayors related story after story of neighbors upset with loud parties, parking problems and strangers wandering around all hours of the night. They want to be able to stop it but Florida law won't let them. Also at issue is Senate Bill 1400, sponsored in part by Senator Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg. That bill will come before TBN StaffLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives arrested a 43-year-old St. Petersburg man May 31 after he allegedly forced his way into an 85-year-old Largo woman's home and made her buy meat she did not want. Detectives with the Economic Crimes Unit began an investigation May 11 after the victim, Shirley McGathey, reported a robbery to deputies. Investigators say McGathey was outside her residence in Oak Crest Mobile Home Park about 1:30 p.m. that day picking up her mail when Ronald Vanwie Jr., who was soliciting the sale of meat, approached her. McGathey told deputies that she had recently injured herself and was using a walker for mobility assistance. She said she told Vanwie that she did not want to buy Mayors to state reps: Get out of our wayLPD, elderly Largo woman have beef with meat salesmanLeaders of beach towns seek answers on how to handle short-term rentalsLargo Medical remembers past, looks toward future CELEBRATING THE BIG 4-0 Photo by CHRIS GEORGEOnlookers check out a time line unveiled in the hallway of Largo Medical Center on June 1 during an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the hospital. Below is how the facility looked at its opening in 1978 and how it looks now. Rendering courtesy of LARGO CENTRAL LLCCity commissioners decided to move forward with a potential $1.7 million incentive agreement with the developer for West Bay Lofts, a $48.8 million project that includes a ve-story building on the 500 block of West Bay Drive and a three-story building on the 600 block. By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO When construction started on Largo Medical Center in the fall of 1977, it had one employee, CEO Jack Bovender. Now, 40 years after the hospital of cially opened on June 5, 1978, it has more than 1,100 employees and is the third-largest employer in Largo. That growth and transformation from a community hospital into a large teaching institution are two of the many reasons executives, current and former employees, local business leaders, elected of cials and many more gathered at the hospital's original and now West Bay campus June 1 to mark its 40th anniversary with a celebration and dedication. The highlight of the event, which included speakers, family-friendly activities, clowns and food trucks, was the unveiling of a time line that displayed four decades of history and accomplishments. One of those speakers, longtime nurse Jean Fronce, had been there for all of it, retiring just a few weeks ago after a 40-year career at the hospital. "I can remember the very beginning here," she said. "Coming in here, we were employed for a month before we had any patients and it was just a fantastic experience with Jack Bovender setting up the whole operation." The facility began as a 246-bed facility with a focus on cardiac care, but plenty has changed since then, including its name.

2A Police Leader, June 7, 2018 Police BeatMan charged with DUI manslaughter after hit-and-run in Treasure Island kills 2TREASURE ISLAND Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies charged a 38-year-old Land O'Lakes man with two counts of DUI manslaughter and two counts of leaving the scene with death after a crash June 2 in Treasure Island. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team, 74-year-old Nicholas Michael Desanta was walking with 81-year-old Beverly J. Gran, both of Sebring, about 6:45 p.m., when they attempted to cross Gulf Boulevard at 11799 Gulf Blvd. in Treasure Island. Deputies say the pedestrians were attempting to cross Gulf Boulevard from west to east when a 2014 Ford Explorer driven by Aleem Reezan Temon Hamid struck them and then ed the scene. Paramedics from Treasure Island Fire Rescue responded and transported both Desanta and Gran to a local hospital where they were later pronounced dead. Of cers from Treasure Island Police Department located Hamid still behind the wheel of the 2014 Ford Explorer at 1 Park Place, Treasure Island. Investigators say that Hamid showed signs of impairment and refused to cooperate with investigators. Investigators arrested Hamid at about 8:06 p.m. and transported him to the county jail. He was charged with two counts of DUI manslaughter, two counts of leaving the scene with death, and refusal to submit to lawful test of breath, urine and blood.

Marselia Anthony Smith, 34, was booked into the county jail May 31 on three charges of lewd and lascivious battery and one charge of lewd and lascivious conduct. Bail was set at $80,000. Clearwater police say Smith was a teacher at Dunedin Middle School when the incidents occurred. Smith is no longer employed with the Pinellas County School District. Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives became involved in the investigation May 31 after receiving information from Clearwater police about incidents that occurred at Dunedin Middle School, 70 Patricia Ave., where Smith had been employed as a chorus teacher. Detectives say Smith began communicating with the victim, who was not his student, through a social networking website. Smith then engaged in inappropriate sexual activity with the student at the school in February. Detectives say the activity did not occur during school hours. Detectives attempted to interview Smith at the jail, but he declined. In a prior interview with Clearwater detectives, Smith reportedly admitted to all charges. Detectives are unaware of additional victims. Anyone with more information is asked to call Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce, Crimes Against Children Unit Detective A.

called Medical Center Hospital, but would change its name to Largo Medical Center in 1984. In 2008, HCA acquired the 200-bed Sun Coast Hospital on Indian Rocks Road, and in 2014, construction was completed on a free-standing ER on Gulf to Bay Boulevard in Clearwater. The hospital has also earned a reputation as a nationally-renowned teaching hospital and features one of 11 statutory teaching programs in the state, according to Tony Degina, who took over as CEO almost six years ago. It currently has 425 private beds and provides a variety of services, the newest of which is its Transplant Institute. "When I think of the history here, it's wonderful to see all the growth we've had," Degina said in a press release. "We now have four campuses and have been adding new services along the way that have bene ted the community locally, and now regionally with our tertiary services such as transplant, spine and cardiac surgery. These are all areas where we excel and also provide great service." Dr. Ravi Chari, president of the HCA West Florida division, agreed that LMC has left its mark on Largo and beyond. "There are so many rsts that Largo represents for this community all the way from the hospital, providing heart care, exceptional care in orthopedics and most recently with the addition of the transplant center." he said during the dedication June 1. "It has reshaped and changed health care delivery on the west coast of Florida." Chari added that HCA founder Tom Frist Sr. would be proud of what the hospital has become and the people who made it happen. "What I've seen in the people and I see even here today are the same things that I know Dr. Frist started with the company, which is he started the company to be the provider of choice in the community, he started it to provide great care for patients, a great place for people and employees to work, and a wonderful and exceptional place for physicians to practice in," he said. "And that's why I see when I see Largo." Fronce said the employees are what makes LMC so special, which is one of the reasons she remained there for four decades. "The reason I stayed here for 40 years is people," she said. "I've made so many friends here. It's bittersweet with my retirement." Fronce's career may be ending, but Degina said the future of the hospital is bright with a series of projects designed to enhance capacity and services. On the West Bay campus, construction has commenced on an 18,000-square-foot vertical addition to the fifth floor that will result in an additional 26 patient beds. Also, the renovation of an observation unit on the second oor will create 3,000 square feet for a four-bed critical-care unit for the hospital's Transplant Institute. A project is also in the works to renovate a medical of ce building the hospital acquired 18 months ago On the Indian Rocks campus, Degina said he is awaiting approval from HCA West Florida for a $31 million expansion of the behavioral health program from 71 to 105 beds. "I am so happy with where we have been and where we are going, how we are truly a family that takes care of the patients and community that we serve," Degina said. "The Real Estate Development grant was established to encourage and advance the development of mixed-use developments in downtown something that the plan calls for and something that we don't have today," Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon said. "This grant is to help offset a little of the cost associated with constructing a mixed-use project." Brydon said this is the first request for the grant program, which could award a developer 50 percent of Largo's portion of tax increment revenue generated by the project over the next 10 years, and it would be paid out after the project has been completed.Design detailsDeveloper Gary Tave's $48.8 million project includes a fivestory building on the 500 block of West Bay Drive and a three-story building on the 600 block, with commercial space making up the rst two oors of both structures and residential space occupying the rest. It consists of 123 high-quality residential units, 40,000 gross square feet of commercial space, a parking garage and a pedestrian bridge that will connect the two buildings. Amenities for the rental units will include a tness facility, a business center, guest suites, a rooftop pool and entertainment areas. Each unit will have 9-foot-high ceilings, ceramic flooring and stacking washer-dryer units. Tave is also proposing to install power lines underground along the right-of-way on all the project roadways to complement the aesthetics of the neighborhood. According to Community Development Director Carol Stricklin, the project is in the nal stages of site plan review and construction is expected to start in July and end by August 2019.Sending a messageEconomic Development coordinator Karisa Rojas-Norton said members of the Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board, who voted 7-2 in April to approve the incentive, were hoping the project would stimulate growth in the district. "The members felt strongly that a mixed-use project was needed in downtown Largo," she said. "They expressed that they were appreciative of the developer's project, and they specifically said that they wanted to send a message to other developers that they want more mixed-use projects like the West Bay Lofts in downtown Largo." Assuming a 5 percent growth rate each year in the assessed property value, Rojas-Norton said the revenue generated by the development to the district over the 10 years could be $3.45 million. The grant would mean half would go to the developer, but the county's contribution would be $3.2 million, so the project could still generate $4.95 million to the West Bay Drive fund, she said. "In addition to the tax increment revenue that would be generated for the district by the project, the project will bring pedestrian improvements landscape improvements and lightning improvements. Public on-street parking and parking from the structure will be constructed as part of the project and it will bring retail, shopping, dining and personal services amenities to downtown."At what cost?While commissioners unanimously agreed to move ahead with the incentive, not everyone shared their enthusiasm for the grant. According to the minutes from the April 30 advisory board meeting, Tave said the grant wouldn't make or break the project, which led to at least two board members questioning whether the incentive was necessary. Neil McMullen, a longtime Largo businessman and former City Commission candidate, and Laura Guroian, owner the Evermore Cafe in downtown, each said they were conflicted and wondered whether the estimated $1.7 million would be better used elsewhere in the district. Guroian added that the city had already shown support in the form of vacating alleyways surrounding the property and a density bonus that would allow 45 units per acre. Tave responded that he took a loss when he paid the city $1.55 million for the 600 block, which was probably worth about $800,000, but it was necessary to make the project viable and that he hoped to use the grants funds to continue to leverage the project. Guroian said she understood, but it would still be a shame to give away new revenue that at the end comes back to the county and city.In other news The Largo Police Department will move forward with an agreement with two charter schools to provide school resource of cers. Under the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, each school in the state, including charter schools, are required to have either an SRO or guardian assigned to their campus for security. The schools, Pinellas Academy of Math and Science and Pinellas Preparatory Academy, each receive approximately $41,000 from the Pinellas County School District, but said they will subsidize the rest to pay the city the $69,667 needed for each reserve of cer. Commissioners voted 7-0 to pay $50,000 to settle a lawsuit with Michael and Angela McCann after a car accident involving a Volunteer in Policing.

Children that are not potty-trained must the next sitting of the Legislature.Brandes not budgingBrandes, according to the mayors at the Big-C meeting on May 30, has not shown any inclination to back away from the state having control over the municipalities regarding the rentals. Bill Queen, the mayor of North Redington Beach, said he met with Brandes recently and the senator stuck with the stance he has mentioned in the past. "He said property rights must be protected and they are residential in nature," said Queen. "That means in residential neighborhoods." Queen also quoted Brandes as saying the grandfather clause can't go on forever. The grandfather clause relates to 2011 when the rst piece of legislation was passed limiting municipalities' rights to restrict short-term rentals. From that point on towns could not pass local ordinances which limited the frequency or number of times residents could rent their property. Local laws already on the books would be "grandfathered" in. In a letter he wrote outlining his stand against short-term rentals, Queen spoke of the negative issues that arise when the rentals cannot be restricted. "Noise, traf c, parking, garbage and safety," he wrote. "All of these issues would be handled by local law enforcement. However, unlike a permanent resident that can be communicated with on a continuing basis the weekly or nightly turnover of people would cause repeated violations of the same offenses." "Opening up the residential neighborhoods to these issues is counterproductive to the peace, serenity and safety that we currently enjoy in our homes; all things that are not for sale for any amount of tax revenue as touted by the proponents of these bills," he wrote. Queen concluded his letter by suggesting the solutions to the problem would be the elimination of the 2011 legislation and the election of state representatives most sympathetic to their cause. Indian Rocks Beach Mayor Cookie Kennedy added to the discussion by saying there is no middle ground on the issue. "You can't be in the middle," she said. "Short-term rentals pit neighbor against neighbor. We want respect and it doesn't happen with this. People are having parties all the time." Kennedy suggested having a round-table discussion, which would bring together all the players in the issue. Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos threw a note of caution into the discussion. "We have to take the emotion out of it," he said. "We need to talk to our legislators and get them to understand what we're talking about." Queen replied that after meeting with the legislators several times nothing has changed. "We don't seem to be getting anywhere," he said. "We have to stop throwing stones at them and take the emotion out," replied Cretekos. "We're saying the same thing just from a different perspective." Kennedy reiterated her desire to have a roundtable discussion and said the beach towns have to enlist allies in their ght. "The county has a piece in this too and they have said they will revisit their laws," she said. "We need to branch out and get other towns involved; there is strength in numbers." St. Pete Beach Mayor Alan Johnson summed up his feelings in one sentence. "Leave us the heck alone." Johnson told a story of a single woman who was afraid to leave her house at night because of rowdy parties going on next door. "We have varying degrees of the problem going on all over," he said. Brandes was not at the meeting but his representative was. Melissa Meshil, his legislative assistant, told the group that Brandes wants to get involved with the mayors. "He wants to advance the discussion," she said. "There is no pathway to repealing the 2011 law but he wants to hear solutions." Further discussion on the issue from the audience included the dif culty of enforcing any regulations that may be on the books. "Often renters are instructed to say they are friends of the owners," said Cretekos. State Rep. Kathleen Peters, R-Treasure Island, commented that the issue won't stop here. "They want to take away the nuisance laws, and they might encroach on condo bylaws," Peters said. In the end the mayors voted unanimously to hold a roundtable discussion in Indian Shores with the date to be determined.

She attempted to enter her home and lock the front door, but Vanwie forced his way inside, police said. Investigators say McGathey repeatedly told Vanwie to leave her home and he refused. Vanwie insisted that McGathey purchase meat from him and became increasingly more aggressive each time she declined. McGathey told detectives she was frightened of Vanwie who insisted she pay $500 for the package of meat. McGathey told Vanwie she did not have $500, but would pay $200 if he would leave her home. Vanwie placed the unwanted package of meat in her freezer, collected the $200 check from McGathey, and left her home. Investigators say McGathey reported she was terri ed of Vanwie and was forced to pay him for her safety.Two more meat salesmen arrestedThrough this investigation, it was learned that Pinellas County Consumer Protection was looking into cases that occurred in the same manner involving two employees of Gourmet Grocery LLC., where Vanwie is employed. Detectives arrested Vanwie at about 10:30 a.m. May 31 at the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. He was charged with one count of robbery, burglary, theft from person over 65 years of age, home solicitation without a permit and failure to provide three-day right to cancel. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bail was set at $30,150. Detectives say Vanwie has a history of reported aggressive meat sales and a conviction of home solicitation without a permit. Pinellas County Consumer Protection obtained arrest warrants for the two additional suspects, Andrew Tsaffaras and Erick Harmon, on June 1, who were arrested the same morning. They are also employees of Gourmet Grocery. No further information was provided.

6A County Leader, June 7, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersST. PETERSBURG PSTA Board members gave unanimous approval May 23 of a federally funded program of projects, which must be submitted to the Federal Transit Administration by June 30. Chief Financial Officer Debbie Leous said the required public hearing was held May 16 and no comments or concerns were heard. Leous presented highlights of plans for the grant money PSTA is applying for including just over $13 million through Section 5307 Formula funds, which can be used for a variety of capital needs and preventive maintenance. PSTA uses a portion of the money for operations and has kept that amount "steady" over recent years, Leous said, which allows more of the money to be used for capital projects. One of the projects staff proposes to use a portion of the money for is automatic passenger counters at a cost of $620,000. Leous said about 40 percent of buses now have the counters, but using grant money, PSTA will be able to install the equipment on the remainder of the eet. The counters provide more accurate information on how many passengers are getting on and off the buses, she said. Section 5307 money also will be used to replace the antiquated security access system and other needs. Staff also proposes using just over $7 million in Section 5337 State of Good Repair Funds to purchase equipment, and the nearly $1.8 million in Section 5339 Bus and Bus Facility Funds will be used to purchase replacement 35-foot buses. In addition, PSTA submitted two funding applications for Section 5310 Enhance Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities to the Florida Department of Transportation. One grant request of $86,930, which would be 80 percent funded with federal dollars, with 10 percent coming from state and local sources, would pay for the mobility manager's salary and fringe benefits. The second grant application of $500,000, using the same funding formula, would pay for a wheelchair ramp replacement project.Potential projects for tourist tax dollarsChief Development Officer Cassandra Borchers talked about several "candidate projects" that will be presented to the Tourist Development Council June 20 for possible funding with Tourist Development Tax revenue. The state Legislature passed a bill that allows Tourist Development Tax, aka bed tax, money to be spent on public facilities, such as transit, that support tourist-related business activities. Examples of potential tourismfocused transit projects included the Clearwater Beach to TIA Express, the Mid-County Beach to TIA Express, the Jolley Trolley Coastal Enhanced Service and the 727X Downtown to Downtown Express. PSTA Board Chairwoman Janet Long said this would be the rst time a transit group had appealed to the TDC for funding because before now, the state only allowed TDT money to be spent on a narrow list of tourismrelated items. Long believes there is a "nexus between providing infrastructure improvements to help with moving tourists around," which would make local transit project eligible for funding. Board member Charlie Justice, who also serves as a Pinellas County commissioner, cautioned Board members to "temper expectations," as the matter had yet to be heard by the County Commission. "There's going to be an awful lot of discussion on what to do with the money," agreed Board member and County Commissioner Dave Eggers, who said the money could be used for a variety of needs from public safety to sewers. He advocates, "Incrementally stepping into it (extended uses of the money), so we don't overextend and have to step back."Performance updatesCEO Brad Miller provided an update on ridership numbers. Total ridership was down 4.3 percent in April and 6 percent year-to-date. Miller said while reductions were occurring along the fixed routes, use of DART (Demand Response Transportation) service is setting records. DART services are provided to people who, because of their disability, are unable to safely and independently utilize PSTA buses. PSTA contracts with Care Ride to provide the service. While it is good news that people are using the service, which cost $4.50 for a one-way trip to the user, it costs PSTA $30 a trip, which is creating "a crimp in the budget," Miller said. He told Board members that funding DART would be one of the challenges that needed to be addressed when preparing the scal year 2019 budget. The second challenge will be increase in fuel prices.PSTA makes bid for federal dollars PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION Around PinellasInterim emergency management director namedCLEARWATER Veteran public safety professional David Halstead has been named interim Emergency Management director, effective June 1. He will serve in the role as the county continues its search for a permanent director following the departure of Sally Bishop. "I am honored to serve Pinellas County in this interim role and look forward to working with the rest of the county team as we help our citizens plan and prepare," said Halstead. Halstead brings more than 40 years of experience as an emergency responder and manager to his interim role. He has served in a wide range of leadership roles for emergency response, including wild re disasters, major hurricanes and other rescue operations. In 2004, he was appointed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to serve as the state's rst chief for the Of ce of Domestic Preparedness. In 2010, he was appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist to director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management after 10 years with the division. He has more recently served as a Senior Homeland Security and Emergency Management consultant, and as adviser to CNN during Hurricane Irma. For information on hurricane preparedness, please visit www. or call Pinellas County Emergency Management at 727-464-3800.Fertilizer restrictions continue to Sept. 30Residents and landscapers are reminded that Pinellas County's fertilizer ordinance prohibits the sale or application of fertilizers containing nitrogen and/or phosphorous between June 1 and Sept. 30. Phosphorous cannot be used at any time of the year unless a soil test con rms that it is needed. Pinellas County's fertilizer ordinance regulates landscape maintenance practices year-round and the sale and use of fertilizers containing nitrogen or phosphorous during the rainy season. Homeowners, landscapers and lawn care services must follow the practices described in the ordinance or face nes up to $10,000 per day. All landscapers who apply fertilizer in the county must display a Pinellas County-certi ed vehicle decal. The nitrogen/phosphorous ban aims to prevent fertilizer runoff from entering storm drains and lakes, ponds, rivers, Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Excess nitrogen and phosphorous can cause harmful algae blooms that lower oxygen levels and lead to sh kills. Recent data shows that the ordinance is having a positive impact on the aquatic environment.

The ultimate goal is for them to be reunited with their parents. A reuni cation celebration is scheduled for Friday, June 15, noon, at Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center, 14250 49th St. N., Clearwater. "A ny time a child enters foster care, our goal is to work with the family to nd a way to quickly and successfully rejoin them with their families," says Jess Sternthal, associate executive director of Eckerd Connects Community Alternatives Pasco and Pinellas. "These reuni cation ceremonies are opportunities to celebrate the hundreds of families who have done the work necessary to be reunited with their children." During the reuni cation process, Eckerd Connects and subcontracted case management agencies (Youth and Family Alternatives, Directions for Living and Lutheran Services of Florida) work together to identify problem areas, training opportunities, and rehabilitative measures for parents whose children have entered foster care. This effort includes case management, interventions, client advocacy, and an entire network of therapeutic support. Their success means keeping families together, and decreasing the likelihood that the children will re-enter the system. The ceremony will include remarks from circuit court judges, case management organization directors, and other leaders involved with the system of care. The program also will feature speeches from parents who were recently reunited with their children, highlighting their challenges and successes.

7A Leader, June 7, 2018 060718


8A Viewpoints Leader, June 7, 2018WASHINGTON Reality TV star Kim Kardashian visited the White House Wednesday to urge President Donald Trump to commute the sentence of a 63-yearold great-grandmother serving a federal sentence of life without parole for a rst-time, nonviolent drug offense. Instead, Trump announced Thursday that he would pardon Dinesh D'Souza, a conservative author who pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign nance laws in 2012. D'Souza paid a ne and served eight months in a community center. A full presidential pardon would wipe clean his criminal record. It would be nice to see Trump show as much sympathy for a convict who screwed up her life as he did for a conservative who screwed up his campaign donations. In 1996, Alice Marie Johnson was convicted on eight criminal counts, including conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, attempted possession of cocaine and money laundering charges. She has already served 21 years in prison. In pleading Johnson's case, Kardashian shrewdly seized upon draconian federal sentencing practices that can put lowor mid-level nonviolent offenders away for decades, even life thanks to a system so rife with abuse that some Senate Democrats and Republicans are determined to change the law. These of cials don't argue that offenders like Johnson should not go to prison; instead they maintain that the federal sentences should more closely re ect the crime. Violent drug kingpins, not their underlings, should be sentenced to life, they argue. Hence, the ACLU and the conservative Charles Koch Foundation both have advocated for Johnson's early release. They have not found a ready ally in Trump, who at the 2016 Republican National Convention criticized President Barack Obama for ending "decades of progress made in bringing down crime" with a directive to federal prosecutors not to go for the maximum sentence available under the federal mandatory minimum system. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been perhaps the most stalwart opponent of reform efforts in Congress. Trump World, however, rarely presents itself without a counter force. On this issue, son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has been a persuasive and effective advocate for criminal justice reform. This is an issue that is personal for Kushner as his father was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign contributions. Another driver just might be Special Counsel Robert Mueller, said Pat Nolan of the American Conservative Union Foundation's Center for Criminal Justice Reform. Mueller's Russia probe shows a federal system in which lawmen "decide who they're going to prosecute and then hunt for a crime," said Nolan, who was the Republican leader of the California Assembly before he served 29 months behind bars on a federal racketeering charge. "This has really opened his eyes." Kushner and Nolan would love to see Washington enact federal sentencing reform, but with the administration opposed, they've focused on legislation that can be enacted. Kushner has corralled his painful family experience behind a prison reform bill that passed the House by a 360-59 vote. Support was unusually bipartisan with 226 Republicans and 134 Democrats voting yes. The First Step Act, sponsored by Reps. Doug Collins, R-Georgia., and Hakeem Jeffries, D-New York, would increase the good time credit, ensure inmates are placed within 500 driving miles of their families and provide incentives for inmates to complete rehabilitation programs. Trump has pledged to sign the bill. So what could go wrong? The U.S. Senate. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, has come out against the measure's risk assessment mechanism, which among other problems, would "give far too much discretion" to the Trump administration's Bureau of Prisons. Jeffries rejects that claim. "Ultimately, it should be our mission to improve the lives of the people we are here to represent," he wrote in reply. Jeffries called on Durbin and company to "reconsider their position, cast aside partisan ambition and join the House's ght to x our broken criminal justice system." But it is not only Democrats who oppose First Step. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has blocked the House bill because it excludes sentencing reform. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, co-sponsor of the Senate version of First Step, has warned that mandatory minimum sentencing reductions could doom needed prison reform. And like Kushner and Nolan, Cornyn supports sentencing reform. It would be great if Kardashian's appeal for Johnson's release changed the president's heart by putting a face on a system that throws small- sh nonviolent offenders in prison until they die. But if it doesn't, the Senate should go for a win that eases the way for federal inmates upon their release. First Step should save taxpayers money, but more important it should increase offenders' chances for a life in step with the law. And really, how can sentencing reform advocates demand a bill that xes runaway federal sentences when they failed to send a bill to President Barack Obama, who favored the idea, in 2016? Contact Debra J. Saunders at or 202-6627391. Follow @DebraJSaunders on Twitter. Coming events often cast their shadows before them. I wonder if that may become the case with the National Football League's decision to ne players (or their teams) who refuse to stand during the playing of our national anthem. Although the NFL ruling allows non-standing players to remain in their locker rooms during the anthem, patriotic logic would seem to demand that they at least stand for maybe five or 10 seconds before sitting down. With the protesting players off the field, shouldn't we then turn our attention to any fans who do not stand? Every game has some of these. They may include the aged, the in rm and persons who sympathize with the locker room protesters. This third group would be identified by watchful LOY-PATs (Loyalty Patrollers) and expelled from the stadium or otherwise dealt with. As the NFL's patriotic wave sweeps across our country, other measures may gain favor. For example, players who score a touchdown would no longer slam the football into the ground to express their joy. Instead, they would be required to stand at attention facing the nearest American ag, and salute it. Should the YMS (You must stand!) requirement be expanded to college and high school football games? Why not? Like religion, patriotism is most effective when instilled in the young. Athletes trying out for teams may one day be asked to rst indicate their willingness to show reverence for the Star-Spangled Banner. Perhaps one day the NFL will stage contests giving $50 cash prizes to spectators who can correctly recite the second and third stanzas of the anthem. If such a contest were staged today it would probably cost the owners a total of $300 per game. How should the fines levied against nonstanding players or their teams be spent? Medical research on concussions would be one worthy cause. My own suggestion is that some of the funds be spent on professional voice coaches. They would train performers (both male and female) to sing the anthem in pure, clear tones. Too often today the singer's performance is used as a self-promoting showoff opportunity, complete with warbles, wavers and other non-traditional voice acrobatics. The NFL decision to punish protesting players adds one more chip to our alreadyfragmented national psyche. We have not yet descended into the jingoistic madness of 1936 Germany, but the potential trappings are evident on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. If I ran the NFL I think I'd ask (or at least encourage) dissident players to write down their points of view and their feelings. Today, as we watch players kneel on the sidelines, we really can't be sure what each player is protesting. Wherever your sympathies may lie, a football stadium is a lousy place in which to practice politics. I'm not sure what the ideal forum might be. Facebook, tweeties and news media interviews would be better publicity outlets than sideline benches. I doubt Francis Scott Key intended his masterpiece to be used as a football for national dissension. Nevertheless, here we are millions of football fans (and anyone else who's paying attention) are faced with a choice. Do we applaud the players who kneel, or the NFL of cials and owners who oppose them? Or is there a third choice to explore? It might take the form of questions we might ask ourselves when any group avails itself of its right to assemble and protest. Are the protesters peaceful? Are people and property being harmed? Are threats of violence being made against others? Are the protesters and the police assigned to the event abiding by the rule of law? In the case of athletic or other public gatherings, do the actions of the protesters actually impede the scheduled event? If the answer to these questions is "no," then a reasonable attitude (in my opinion) would be "What's the problem? Let the game go on." Throughout this controversy, one tricky, troubling question begs for an answer: Who are the genuine patriots the kneeling players or the outraged fans who would love to see the SOBs (to quote our Fearless Leader) kicked off the eld? Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ silver lining for a do-it-yourself painterMy dermatologist asked me if I had painted my toe. I assured her that it was unintentional. What I didn't tell her is that I also had splashed paint on my face, a chair, several planks of laminate, my kitchen sink and countertop, two doors, electrical boxes, drapes, shoes, shirt, pants, curtains and eyeglasses. Good thing I don't own a dog. This is not an advice piece on do-it-yourself painting. Full disclosure: I wrote a column several years ago under the headline "Help wanted to hang a picture." But since my moniker is The Last of the Great Cheapskates, once again I decided to take on a home improvement task instead of paying a professional to do the work. Several weeks ago, my condo association hired a professional to replace and seal a small section of drywall near an electrical box in my master bedroom. It had to be repainted, prompting a trip to a nearby home improvement store. Heigh-ho, heigh-ho. First mistake: I didn't create a written list of supplies I would need to complete the mission. All I brought with me was a nearly empty old can of paint that I had saved for years to touch up certain areas of my house. The color is macadamia, which, translated, means light brown. Though the code on the cover of the can was splattered with paint and faded, the store employee said he could decipher it. He mixed a can of paint for me, reminding me that color code was on the lid. "Take a picture of the lid in case you need another gallon," he said. I did. I also bought a couple of brushes and headed for home, thinking I was embarking on a two-hour task, tops. And then, in a voice akin to that of Tim the Toolman, a siren in my head suggested that I should repaint the entire bedroom. Oh, why not. It will only take me an afternoon if I hurry. I got this. Words that I've come to regret: if I hurry I moved my bed and chest of drawers away from the walls and moved paintings, drapes and other furniture out of the room. I also put down some drop cloths. And I'm off. Spilled some paint on the drop cloth; ominous start. Within an hour, the drop cloth is sticking to my shoes, which were leaving light brown footprints on my flooring. Later, fidgeting over whether I should use brushes or rollers to apply the paint on certain areas, I came to the conclusion that I needed more drop cloths, paint and other supplies. Heigh-ho, heigh-ho. Off to the store again. Returned home, threw down some more drop cloths and cursed, having seen some blotches of paint on the oor and other areas that in my haste I had neglected to cover. Probably spent more time removing paint then applying it. Was getting tired, too. I wonder how much energy is spent cursing? I surrendered and decided to call it a day, after splattering more paint trying to clean rollers and paint brushes outside. Good thing the EPA wasn't watching. Day two: After another trip to the home improvement store, I assessed the damage from Saturday's painting debacle. #&X@#! I noticed that I had missed several areas, particularly in corners and near the top of the walls. I cursed because I had splashed paint on molding. I cursed at myself because I got in a hurry. I cursed because I had coated some of the popcorn ceiling with paint. I cursed because I had popcorn ceilings. And who was the Nazi who invented popcorn ceilings? Assessing the damage, I had vowed to nish painting the room, deciding to delay what to do with the Nazi ceilings later. Finally, I nished the job or at least convinced myself that I had nished. Cleanup and room restoration took a couple of more hours. I managed to hang up curtain rods by myself, though the curtains fell off about three times. On nal inspection, I decided I still had some painting to do. Later. Another day. Another week. Another month. Recently, I surveyed my painting work. Sigh. The least I can do is straighten some seascapes hanging on my wall. After all, Winslow Homer probably spent a lot of time on those paintings. On second thought, he probably spent less time on a masterpiece than I did painting the #@! room. So, I'm at a crossroads. Should I try to paint the areas I missed or hire a professional to take on the job? If there is any silver lining, I've learned something about buying paint brushes at home improvement stores: Unused paint brushes work just as well for cookouts as barbecue brushes and they are less expensive. A minor victory for the Last of the Great Cheapskates Heigh-ho, heigh-ho. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Community 9A Leader, June 7, 2018Clearwater Central Catholic kicks off $15M capital driveCLEARWATER Clearwater Central Catholic High School has begun construction on the "Ignite Tomorrow, Today" capital campaign building project. This project will replace three of the oldest buildings on campus with ve new buildings providing more than 53,000 square feet of new space, housing 24 classrooms with the latest educational technology. The space also will include a Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, providing advanced research, collaborative and innovation capabilities; a freestanding chapel; a leadership center; a football field house offering an enhanced athletic experience with game preparation and study areas for studentathletes; improved campus security; and increased energy ef ciency. To minimize the impact on students during construction, the project will be accomplished in four phases between April 2018 and January 2020. Space in existing buildings will be used to absorb those classrooms scheduled for demolition in each phase, eliminating the need for portable classrooms. While construction of the football fieldhouse has begun, the $15 million Ignite Tomorrow, Today campaign kicked off publicly June 5 with a campaignblessing ceremony and farewell to the Notre Dame building (the rst campus building scheduled for demolition).SPC of cials say smoke-free policy making a difference The dust has settled and the smoke cleared at St. Petersburg College as the institution approaches its second anniversary of being tobacco free. The studentled initiative to ban all forms of tobacco, including smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarettes, on all SPC campuses and properties was formally adopted in June 2016. "Secondhand smoke is a major hazard, and a lot of people do not want to be around it," SPC St. Petersburg Gibbs Campus SGA President Fallia Zacharopoulou said. "I'm very proud to be at SPC where we look out for each other." The Truth Initiative, a national foundation dedicated to ending tobacco use, awarded SPC a $10,000 grant through its SmokeFree and Tobacco-Free Community College grant program to assist with implementing and publicizing the new tobacco-free policy. "Our students raised a concern, performed research and professionally presented their findings," said Dr. Jamelle Conner, provost of SPC's St. Petersburg/Gibbs Campus. "Being awarded the Truth Initiative grant was further validation of their good work, and we greatly appreciate the support that the grant provided in making SPC smoke and tobacco free." The grant wrapped up earlier this spring. However, SPC will not cease efforts to promote its smokefree policy. Under the Truth Initiative grant, SPC held multiple Wellness and Awareness events on campus. Tobacco Free Forums were also held on multiple SPC campuses to encourage open dialogue between students, faculty and staff on the new policy and related concerns to smoking and tobacco use. Information on the tobacco-free policy was regularly disseminated to ensure new students were aware of the new rules at the start of each term. In Florida, 18-to-24 year-olds have the highest prevalence of cigarette smoking, compared to all other age groups. Many college students believe their current tobacco use is harmless, that they are not addicted and that they will quit smoking when they graduate, but studies show otherwise. Research demonstrates that young adults who smoke nd that it leads to a lifetime of addiction, resulting in tobacco-related disease and premature death. More than 20 colleges and universities have enacted smokefree campus policies in the Sunshine State.Sandy Lane students participate in Girls on the RunST. PETERSBURG More than 30 girls from Sandy Lane Elementary in Clearwater joined more than 575 other elementary school girls from 39 Gulf Coast area schools at the recent United Healthcare Girls on the Run 5K, where they "graduated" from their 10-week after school 5K and life skills training program. The race, which took place in downtown St. Pete, attracted a record 1,250 participants, raising more than $7,000 for Girls on the Run Greater Tampa Bay. The race and its proceeds commemorate and help fund the Girls on the Run training program in the greater Tampa Bay area, which has grown from six participating schools in 2013 to 39 schools in Sarasota, Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties for the spring 2018 program. Safety Harbor student a Fulbright ScholarDartmouth College senior Alexandra Reichert, a Safety Harbor resident and Academy of the Holy Names graduate, has been selected as a Fulbright Scholar. Reichert, a philosophy major and global health minor, will spend the next year in Ecuador, where she will conduct ethnographic research on indigenous Ecuadorian women's experiences with traditional and Western health services. Sponsored by the U.S. government, the Fulbright Program is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other nations through international educational exchanges in more than 155 countries. Fulbright awards are available for research, graduate study, and teaching English.Local students named to dean's listSeveral Pinellas County students have been named to the spring dean's list at their respective colleges or universities, including the following.

The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa has embarked on a nearly $700 million expansion that will reinforce its position as one of America's largest casinos, with 5,000 slot machines and almost 200 gaming tables. Slated for completion in mid-2019, the expanded casino will offer one of the largest varieties of slot machines in the nation and will offer guests approximately 200,000 sq. ft. of entertainment and gaming. Expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is part of a record $2.4 billion economic investment by the Seminole Tribe of Florida in its two flagship destination casino complexes in Tampa and Hollywood. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood is undergoing a simultaneous expansion and renovation. In Tampa, the tribe's economic investment means there will be close to an additional 1,000 part time and full-time jobs, which are in addition to the over 2,000 construction jobs on-site during the two-year building project. Economic analysts point to another 1,022 indirect permanent jobs generated by the casino expansion, plus another 2,268 indirect construction jobs, for a grand total of more than 6,000 additional jobs. "Major expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is further evidence of the Seminole Tribe's commitment to the people of Florida that it will continue to increase the economic impact of its Seminole Gaming facilities," said Jim Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming, in a press release. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa is one of the largest employers in Tampa Bay with more than 3,500 team members and the property will continue to grow as a destination resort with the ongoing expansion.Eatery to raise funds for Project No LabelsST.

10A Outdoors Leader, June 7, 2018Reefs, inlets are summer hot spotsWith our water temperature approaching the 80s, mid-day shing especially on the shallow grass ats can get pretty tough. As we approach mid-summer conditions it is imperative to search out those areas that provide good tidal flow, depth and structure. Structure is a relative term; a deep depression just off the edge of a at, or a deep trough cut through the sand along the pass shoals can both be considered structure. Some more obvious structures would be jetties, beach breakers, and of course the many arti cial reefs that line our coast. Some of the most productive shing this time of year happens around our pass jetties. These massive structures will hold all kinds of bait, making them a natural stopping point for just about any predator that swims by. Current is usually always present and sh such as snook and tarpon will stage up and wait for their meals to come to them. So, free-lining your baits with the current makes for a deadly presentation. Redfish also can be found working the bottom part of the water column; a medium sized pin sh or a chunk of fresh lady sh shed on the bottom will let you know if there are any red sh around. Near-shore mitigation reefs provide excellent habitat for a variety of game fish. These shallow reefs can be found from 50 to 200 yards offshore. They will hold trout, ounder and cobia and tarpon. Using light tackle and small pilchards will work for the trout, mackerel and ounder while bigger live baits will attract the attention of the tarpon and cobia. Barrier island points get loaded with snook this time of year. Unfortunately, especially on the weekends, they get loaded with boats and jet skis as well. Trying these spots early in the morning is best chance at hooking a big snook. Free line grass grunts down tide to the sh. Grass grunts are an irritant to the big sh and will quickly be removed from the area. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at shing weekend arrivesGov. Rick Scott recently announced that June 9 and 10 will be a license-free freshwater shing weekend for Florida residents and visitors. Fishing licenses are not required on these weekends. The license-free freshwater shing weekend follows on the heels of the license-free saltwater shing weekend on June 1 and 3. "Florida is known as the shing capital of the world, and taking advantage of these license-free shing weekends is the perfect opportunity for Floridians and their families to get outdoors," Scott said in a press release. "I appreciate the hard work of FWC to ensure that Florida remains the shing capital of the world." "Summertime in the Sunshine State is great for getting on or near the water," said Bo Rivard, chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. "Established anglers, I encourage you to take a friend or family member out and introduce them to the shing capital of the world." FWC offers eight total license-free fishing days each year. Bag limits, closed areas and size restrictions apply on these days. To learn more about license-free fishing days, visit License. For fishing tips, visit Fish TalesCapt.

Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ “Ocean’s 8,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release. Opening this weekend Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett & Rihanna lead a team hoping to pull off a heist in ‘Ocean’s 8’ 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:‘Ocean’s 8’Genre: Action and adventure Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Richard Armitage, James Corden, Nora ‘Awkwa na’ Lum, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter Director: Gary Ross Rated: PG-13 Five years, eight months, 12 days ... and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) – just released from prison – has been concocting the greatest heist of her storied career. She knows what it’s going to take – a team of the best in their eld, starting with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwa na); expert fence Tammy (Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose Weil (Bonham Carter). The target is $150 million in diamonds – diamonds that will adorn the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. Their plan appears rock solid, but it will need to be awless if the team is to get in and get away – all in plain sight.‘Hotel Artemis’Genre: Thriller and action Cast: Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, So a Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day and Dave Bautista Director: Drew Pearce Rated: R It’s a Wednesday night in the year 2028, and the streets of downtown Los Angeles are impassable. With the most violent riot in L.A. history in its third night, the city’s privatized police force is pummeling blue war-painted protestors whose only demand is clean water. Amidst this chaos, four men clad in skull masks nd themselves in the middle of a failed bank heist. After turning the situation around, Sherman Atkins (Sterling K. Brown) leads his brother Lev Atkins (Brian Tyree Henry) and their two cohorts out of the bank – right into a re ght with the cops. Injured and seeing no other option, Sherman leads them to their only hope for survival – Hotel Artemis.

For performance times or to purchase tickets, call the box of ce at 727498-5205 or visit What happens when you put four musical theater actors together and have them tell the same classic melodrama ve times, as scored by musical theatre heavyweights Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, and Rodgers & Hammerstein? You get the hilarious musical comedy spoof, “The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!).” Join Jen Byrne, Matthew McGee, Ann Morrison and Robert Teasdale for a summer of laughs and songs that will leave you dancing out of the theatre. This side-splitting musical pays loving tribute to the traditions of musical theatre while mercilessly lampooning them to shreds. The irreverent nale to freeFall’s 2017-18 season was the longest-running show in the York Theatre’s history prior to its extended off-Broadway run. “The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)” also stars Michael Raabe, freeFall’s resident musical director. The production is choreographed by Cheryl Lee and is directed by Eric Davis, freeFall’s artistic director.WCP to audition for Neil Simon’s ‘Chapter Two’CLEARWATER – Director Kenn Green will host auditions for Neil Simon’s “Chapter Two” Sunday and Monday, June 24 and 25, 7 p.m., at the West Coast Players theater, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. The production will be West Coast Players’ rst show of the 2018-19 season and is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc. Actors will complete cold readings from the script. Performance dates are Aug. 17 through Sept. 2. Rehearsals will begin at the end of June. No performers are paid. “Chapter Two” is widely perceived to be an autobiographical revelation of Neil Simon’s coming to terms with the death of his rst wife, followed by his love affair and subsequent marriage to actress Marsha Mason. This very funny but poignant play is based around four brilliantly penned characters: George Schneider, a mourning writer; Jenny Malone, a levelheaded actress; Leo, George’s garrulous but loving brother; and Faye, Jenny’s utterly clueless but enchanting friend. George has not moved on from the untimely demise of his wife, despite Leo’s best efforts to hook him up with other women. Then he meets Jenny, who’s just walked out of a terrible marriage to a football player, and in a very short space of time they’re in love. But George’s memories catch up with him and he soon nds himself trapped between the past and the present, and the new relationship starts to crumble. Can he reconcile his past and move forward with Jenny, a sentimental woman with a strong head on her shoulders? Do they give up or work things out? Although it seems like a heavy subject to deal with, Simon’s wonderful narrative and witty and humorous dialogue makes Chapter Two an immensely likeable piece. In George and Jenny, he shows us complexity and simplicity. In Leo and Faye, he presents us with two of the most confused yet adorable characters that we connect with right from the word go. The play was nominated for the 1978 Tony Award for Best Play, and is considered one of Neil Simon’s nest works. In 1979, Chapter Two was released as a lm, directed by Robert Moore and starring James Caan and Simon’s then-wife Marsha Mason, on whom the character of Jennie was based.

Tickets are $16 in advance and $21 at the door. For information, call 727-369-5746. Doors open at 7 p.m. Rick Michel is one of Las Vegas’ premier singers. Since he was a teenager, Michel has been singing Sinatra’s music and has performed with big bands since the early 1980s. “I think Frank Sinatra was the most articulate of all the pop and standard singers,” said Michel in a press release. “He made songs his own by uniquely phrasing the words to wrap around the melody line like no one else before him or since.” Audiences recognize many of the song selections in the show. “I have tried to touch upon all aspects of Mr. Sinatra’s life by choosing the variety of music that best represents his career,” Michel explained. “There is so much material to choose from that I can continue adding new Sinatra songs to my show for years to come and never get to them all.” Michel’s latest project is to sing songs that Frank Sinatra might have sung or that would have been interesting to hear him sing, such as Roger Miller’s “King of the Road,” Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” and “The Curtain Falls” by Bobby Darin. “I am not trying to impersonate Frank Sinatra, just pay homage to the man’s music, and share the stage with the original members of his band,” Michel said.

PETERSBURG – Creative Clay, a nonpro t whose vision is to make the arts accessible to all, has been chosen as one of the recipients of an Impact Grant from the new Lucky’s Market. Located in the former Sears’ building that is adjacent to Tyrone Square Mall, Lucky’s Market offers a vast selection of affordable organic, local, specialty and gluten-free items. The St. Petersburg store is the 13th Lucky’s Market in Florida and the second in the Tampa Bay area. Lucky’s Market opened a store in Sarasota in fall 2017.

We are thankful to Lucky’s Market for their generosity in supporting the children in our community.”‘Webb’s City: The Musical’ to return to Palladium TheaterST. PETERSBURG – The Palladium, the St. Petersburg Museum of History and Will Knot Di Artists will present “Webb City: The Musical, A Concert Version,” written and directed by Bill Leavengood with music and lyrics by Lee Ahlin, Friday through Sunday, Sept. 21-23, at the Palladium Theater, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. For tickets and information, visit or call 727-8223590. In 1999, the Pinellas County Millennium Celebration commissioned Leavengood and Ahlin to create a new musical based on the life and times of J.E. “Doc” Webb, the colorful St. Petersburg entrepreneur called the “P.T. Barnum of Retail.” In 1925, Webb opened a tiny drug store on Ninth Street and over the next ve decades transformed it into a 77-store complex covering 10 city blocks. In its heyday, Webb’s City attracted 60,000 visitors per day. The 2000 world premiere was presented at both Ruth Eckerd Hall and the Mahaffey Theatre. The musical was such a hit that a new nonpro t arts organization, LiveArts, was created to bring it back to the Mahaffey Theater in 2001, where it broke their box of ce records, selling over 10,000 tickets. The September 2017 production was such a popular and critical success, despite Hurricane Irma, that producers, sponsors, and performers have come on board again to revive it once more. The Palladium Theater and Will Knot Di Artists have teamed with another community partner, The St. Petersburg Museum of History, with underwriting once again by Jim and Suzanne MacDougald and Larry and Joyce Beltz, to present this multi-media concert version featuring all of the great music expertly woven together with narration, scene highlights and iconic images from ve decades of St. Petersburg and Webb’s City history. Local favorites Jim Sorenson (Doc Webb), Terrence Jamison (Leo Kerns), Emilia Sargent (Marie Webb), Michael McGuigan (Bunie Webb) and Stephanie Roberts (Breadline Betty) are joined by past “Webb’s City” cast members Charles Reynold (Frank Hubert) and Mitch Marois (Jimmy Webb). The cast is rounded out by a new crop of outstanding young performers, many of whom are show creators Bill Leavengood and Lee Ahlin’s current or former student stars from Shorecrest Preparatory School.Costume rummage sale to bene t Tarpon ArtsTARPON SPRINGS – Tarpon Arts is taking spring cleaning seriously and doing a massive overhaul of its costume closet which holds decades’ worth of costumes from every community theatre production imaginable.

A&E, from page 2BStyx, Joan Jett to play Mid Florida Credit Union AmphitheatreTAMPA – Legendary rockers Styx and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have teamed up with Tesla for a summer tour that kicked off May 30 in Irvine, California. The tour will bring these rock icons to the Tampa Bay area for a performance Sunday, June 17, 7 p.m., at Mid Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre, at the Florida State Fairgrounds, 4802 U.S. 301 N., Tampa. Tickets start at $11.25. Call 813-740-2446 or visit www. It was 1972 when a group of talented musicians gathered in a suburban Chicago basement and formed Styx, a band that would evolve into the arena rock prototype of the ’70s and ’80s. In the early days, the music of Styx reflected contemporary progressive rock outfits such as Emerson, Lake and Palmer and The Moody Blues. The band embraced this sound on its 1972 self-titled debut, and continued to experiment with progressive rock on albums such as 1973’s “Styx II,” 1974’s “The Serpent Is Rising” and 1975’s “Man of Miracles.” Although these albums earned Styx a loyal following, the band found it dif cult to break into the mainstream. They finally found success when the song “Lady,” released in 1973, began getting radio airplay. The song eventually reached No. 6 on the singles chart. Styx released “Equinox,” their fth album, in 1975 on A&M Records. Around this time, the band’s original guitarist left and was replaced by Tommy Shaw. With Shaw on board, Styx released a string of commercially successful albums including 1976’s “Crystal Ball,” 1977’s “The Grand Illusion,” 1978’s “Pieces of Eight,” 1979’s “Cornerstone,” 1981’s “Paradise Theatre” and 1983’s “Kilroy Was Here.” Among the band’s most recognized hit singles and classic rock radio standards are “Come Sail Away,” “Renegade,” “Blue Collar Man” and “Fooling Yourself.” The band’s current lineup features Tommy Shaw on vocals and guitars; James “JY” Young on vocals and guitars; Lawrence Gowan on vocals and keyboards; Todd Sucherman on drums; and Ricky Phillips on bass, along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo. Over the course of their 40-year career, Styx has released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top 10 singles. The band has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Throughout their illustrious career, they’ve performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” Blackheart, Jett’s independent record label, was founded in 1980 after she was rejected by no less than 23 labels. Blackheart is one of the longest running indie labels and continues to give voice to new bands. As a producer, she has overseen albums by Bikini Kill, Circus Lupus, as well as the Germs’ LA punk masterpiece, GI. Jett’s music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, “Unvarnished,” in 2013 and continue touring the globe with headline shows alongside fellow rock icons like The Who, Green Day and the Foo Fighters. Tesla features Frank Hannon on guitar, Brian Wheat on bass, Jeff Keith on lead vocals, Troy Luccketta on drums and Dave Rude on guitar. Over the course of their 35-year career, the iconic Sacramento melodic hard rock quintet sold more than 25 million albums domestically and played globally to sold-out crowds far and wide. To say Tesla live is absolutely bombastic is an understatement – they are a hard rock band to beat all hard rock bands. Tesla’s ninth full-length album titled “Shock” is due out this fall. The highly anticipated album features Phil Collen of Def Leppard in the producer’s chair and takes a big leap forward as they glance back on their “Mechanical Resonance Live” album.

The more they discover, the more they nd themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’Genre: Documentary Cast: Fred Rogers Director: Morgan Neville Rated: PG-13 For over 30 years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Rogers and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn’t been since. Though he may be best known today as a soft-spoken, cardigan-wearing children’s television host, in reality, Fred Rogers’ career represents a sustained attempt to present a coherent, bene cent view about how we should best speak to children about important matters and how television could be used as a positive force in our society. In “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”, Academy Award-winning lmmaker Morgan Neville looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas. While the nation changed around him, Fred Rogers stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood. Neville pays tribute to this legacy with the latest in his series of highly engaging, moving documentary portraits of essential American artists.‘Hearts Beat Loud’Genre: Drama, comedy and music Cast: Nick Offerman, Kiersey Clemons, Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner and Toni Collette Director: Brett Haley Rated: PG-13 In the hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Nick Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery. For more movie news, visit www.
