Vernon Bryant, a board member of the Friends of Ridgecrest with the Friends of Ridgecrest, had no problem welcoming the single mother of two young boys to the neighborhood. Not only because he and several local volunteers helped build the house, but because Bowen, who worked more than 600 hours to achieve her dream, represents the kind of person he thinks will be the future of the community while keeping it rooted in its past. Bowen isn't the only new resident who fits the mold for Ridgecrest, a historically black community off Ulmerton Road in unincorporated Largo. In the past two weeks, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas has dedicated its rst ve homes there, and many more are on the way. "When you think back to the history of the community, they (residents) have done a lot of that where they've really shared and helped each other through various things," said Bryant, the former director of the Greater Ridgecrest YMCA and current director of the Florida Botanical Gardens. "It models what the community started with, so that's why I think it's important for us (residents Habitat set for largest project yet Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas is embarking on its most ambitious project yet after recently acquiring a 7.3-acre piece of land in Pinellas Park for $2.1 million.PAGE 4ABuilding homes, bridges Dave Gerald, a Habitat for Humanity staff member and member of Anona United Methodist Church, presents some cleaning supplies to Avia Bowen’s children, Mikhail, left, and Kenyon, during a Habitat for Humanity dedication ceremony June 12 in Ridgecrest.

By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO During the past two years, the Largo Police Department responded to more than 4,500 calls involving individuals with mental health problems. More than 1,300 of those calls ended with the person being involuntarily committed under the Baker Act. Police Chief Jeff Undestad thinks there's a better way to deal with the ood of calls, which is why Largo's Police and Community Development departments are teaming up with local nonpro t Directions for Living for a new program that aims to help those in need and reduce repetitive calls for service. The proposed Enriching Lives through Mental Health Services program would partner an officer from the Problem Oriented Policing Unit with a behavioral health navigator from Directions for Living to proactively engage with those who consistently call 911 for help and connect them with services they may need, such as psychological testing, therapy and case By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersLARGO The Pinellas County School District has until Aug. 13, when classes begin, to implement a number of measures designed to keep students and staff safe. The measures are all part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Safety Act passed by the Legislature in the aftermath of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland. School Superintendent Michael Grego told School Board members June 12 that work was ongoing in preparation for the upcoming school year to satisfy the requirements of the Safety Act and make local schools as safe as possible. He asked Clint Herbic, associate superintendent of Operational Services, to provide an update. Herbic said the building assessment process was underway. He said all 123 By CHRIS GEORGETampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Patrons of the Largo Golf Course are demanding the city take a mulligan on a proposal to end the lease with the Golf View Cafe and open a concession area in its place. City officials, who detailed the plan during a City Commission work session June 12, said the purpose of the move was to generate revenue for the course, which was expected to lose $69,500 in fiscal year 2019, and to create a more seamless experience for the clientele. Management analyst Lara Khoury said the new concession area, which would be run by part-time city employees and serve items such as premade sandwiches, hot dogs, soda, beer and wine, would generate a net revenue of $43,200 in its rst year. In subsequent years, Khoury estimated the net revenue would be in excess of $65,000 annually. Currently, the city collects $13,200 annually for the rent of the cafe, which has been run by George Vakalis and Maryann Cunningham since 2007. The lease expires Sept. 30 and the owners have already been noti ed that it won't be renewed. "We felt that this was an opportunity to generate more revenue quickly," Khoury said. "In the future, we'll probably be bringing other items or creative ways of generating more revenue at the golf course." In emails to the City Commission this past week, nearly a dozen patrons of the cafe expressed their displeasure at the plan, echoing the same comments: Concession-style food doesn't make the cut, and if the cafe closes then they would take their business elsewhere. "I am totally appalled that you would even be considering doing something like this," wrote Tara Michaels. "I will no longer be playing at your course if you do this because after my round of golf I enjoy a good lunch that is hot and fresh. Even Wawa makes fresh sandwiches."

2A County Leader, June 21, 2018campuses across the district were being inspected on a building-bybuilding basis, testing every door and window in every office and classroom space. "It's an exhausting process," he said, adding that it was taking a dedicated team of Schools Police partnering with local law enforcement officers about 5-6 hours per high school and 3-5 hours for elementary and middle schools to get the job done. Work began June 1 and has to be completed by July 19. Herbic said the information would be forwarded to the Sheriff's Of ce where a team of analysts will compile everything and then send it to the state in the form of the Florida Safe School Assessment Tool, which must be done by Aug. 1. After that, the district will study what the analysts did, including any possible recommendations, suggestions and observations not only for buildings but will go a step further than the requirements. "We're taking a look at our behaviors and our practices that we do every single day on our campuses," he said. He said the Schools Police and general managers would be having conversations with principals based on what teachers, staff and students do every day "to make sure we take care of each other, so our campuses are safe." Work also has started on student and staff training. Every administrator in the district attended an active assailant training session May 30 conducted by Largo police. The district has until Aug. 11 to conduct active assailant training for all staff members. Herbic said local law enforcement or members of the Schools Police would conduct the training. The training is "severalhours long," Herbic said, and includes mental health and threat assessment, "so staff will learn not only what to do in the case of an active assailant, they will also be able to pick up tips on how to spot children in need, children in crisis and kids they need to make sure help gets to." Student drills are another requirement of the Safety Act. Work started May 30 to develop ageappropriate drills and training for students, especially for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Herbic said the plan was to make sure drills are conducted on the elementary school level without causing fear or "anything else with the younger kids and making sure they know it is a skill that can be transferred out of school to wherever they are grocery store, mall or someplace like that." Drills for middle and high school students are also being developed including videos filmed by St. Petersburg police. Another requirement is that there be a police officer, deputy or school security officer on every campus and for larger campus, more than one officer may be required. Herbic said the district had received close to 400 applications for the job of school security of cer and had sent 150 names to the Sheriff's Office to review. Herbic said the district needed to hire 75. Training is scheduled to start with the Sheriff's Of ce by July 1 and must be complete by or before Aug. 1. Herbic said as training progresses, Schools Police Chief Luke Williams and his team would be looking at assignments for the new officers and possible reassignments for existing school resource of cers to make sure all schools are covered. Full coverage is being provided for schools in Pinellas Park, Tarpon Springs and Gulfport with school resource officers, he said. The district is working on expanded memorandum of understandings with other agencies. "We hope to have the name of a person assigned to every one of our schools, whether it is a SRO from the Schools Police or an agency, or a school security of cer by Aug. 1," Herbic said. SAFETY, from page 1A Police BeatLargo man accused of kidnapping 2-year-old, attempted murderLARGO A 27-year-old Largo man is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on multiple charges including kidnapping and attempted felony murder. Detectives with the Sheriff's Violent Offender Warrant Unit arrested Johnny A. Wise about 9:34 p.m. June 14. He was transported to the count jail and charged with one count of kidnapping, one count of attempted felony murder, one count of criminal mischief, three counts of violation of probation sale of cocaine, three counts of violation of probation aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count of violation of probation possession of cocaine with intent to sell. According to detectives, deputies responded to the residence of Jasmine Golden, 26, on 125th Street North in unincorporated Largo about 10:04 p.m. June 10 for a domestic disturbance. When deputies arrived, Golden told deputies her ex-boyfriend, Wise, became angry after a verbal argument and broke several windows in her home. Golden told deputies Wise threatened to shoot her and then kidnapped her 2-year-old child, Christopher Matthews. Wise ed the residence with Matthews in a 1997 Buick LeSabre. Detectives say Jasmine Golden's step-father, Raymond Golden, 59, of Largo witnessed the incident and followed Wise to the intersection of Sixth Street Southwest and Fourth Avenue Southwest in his 2007 Nissan Frontier truck. When Raymond pulled up behind Wise in his truck, Wise placed the Buick in reverse and accelerated at a high rate of speed intentionally crashing into Raymond's truck. The crash caused significant damage to Raymond's vehicle but he was uninjured. After ramming Raymond's truck, Wise ed in the Buick but then left the vehicle with the child near the intersection of West Bay Drive and Ridge Road Southwest. Deputies from the K-9 Unit and the Flight Unit responded and tried tracking Wise but were unable to nd him. Meanwhile, Wise made contact with a family member of the child and safely released Matthews to that person's custody. The child was uninjured. Wise continued to avoid arrest until June 14 when he was located and arrested at a residence on Williams Drive in Largo.Deputies investigate hit-and-run crash in Madeira BeachMADEIRA BEACH Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a motorcycle versus vehicle hit-and-run crash that occurred 10:54 p.m. June 15 just south of 131st Avenue East in Madeira Beach. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team, D'Anta Solomon, 30, of Temple Terrace was driving his 2008 Volkswagen Jetta northbound in the curb lane of Gulf Boulevard approaching the intersection of 129th Avenue West in Madeira Beach, when he slowed down for a vehicle making a right turn off Gulf Boulevard. Lance McLeod, 55, of Seminole was behind Solomon driving his 2014 Harley Davidson northbound in the curb lane of Gulf Boulevard, when he rear-ended Solomon's Volkswagen. After the impact, McLeod left the scene of the crash and sped off on his motorcycle, northbound on Gulf Boulevard. Investigators say McLeod continued north toward the intersection of 131st Avenue East, where he rearended a second vehicle, a 2002 Honda Civic driven by Urszula Brzeska Boguszewsk, 61, of Largo. The crash caused McLeod to lose control and he was ejected off his motorcycle. Paramedics responded to the scene and transported McLeod to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg Hospital for serious non-life threatening injuries. No one else was injured. Investigators have reason to believe McLeod was impaired at the time of the crash.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Johnny Wise 061418EXPIRES 7/31/18L EXPIRES 7/31/18L EXPIRES 7/31/18L EXPIRES 7/31/18L EXPIRES 7/31/18L OUR 30th YEAR ANNIVERSARY 062118 14219 Walsingham Rd., Suite A, LargoHavanaHarrysMarket. com  727.596.5141 1 NEW LOCATIONSame Great Food060718MORE PARKINGYou Gonna Love It!

will appreciate some greasy fast food, but the bulk of the clientele of this golf course are health conscious adults who appreciate being able to get a freshly cooked meal after a long day on the course. Sadly, if you go through with this change our group will move to other local courses who offer decent food for their patrons." Some comments were even more blunt. "Where is your loyalty after 12 years of great service, great food and great prices? Shame on you!" wrote Barbara Palmeri. Some patrons also expressed concerns about the handling of food. Joan Byrne, recreation, parks and arts director, said the city also serves prepared meals at the Community Center and golf course employees would go through a similar certi cation process. Aside from changing the fare, golf course manager Jason Wilson said the decision will give the city more control and options for the future. "It's controlling the whole experience from the moment they walk into the door, go to the pro shop, go on the golf course and come in and socialize," Wilson said, noting that St. Petersburg also controls operations at its three courses and it has become an industry trend. "We feel by having that control and having that ability that we would maximize the amount of times they come visit our golf course, the amount of referrals we get from that patron." Byrne added that some customers have voiced displeasure with their experience, so, since a vendor won't be used, staff could address complaints in a timely manner. "When somebody comes into the golf course, and it's true of any of our facilities, they don't know who's a vendor, who's a city employee, what's our operation, what isn't," she said. "So if they have an issue with, it re ects on us." According to Khoury, that control will allow the city to do some renovations so the cafe and pro shop are almost one facility. She said they would also revisit an idea that Wilson had some 10 years ago. "We eventually would want to have the facility be a venue for rentals weddings, family gatherings, that sort of thing," she said. "Right now, the facility is not being used for that and having it be one whole operation, it gives us the ability to be more exible in how we run that as a rental venue." After reviewing the complaints, Commissioner John Carroll wondered during the June 19 City Commission how much contact the city had with customers when creating the proposal and what the next step would be. "These emails keep trickling in and I just want to make sure we're in front of these issues before we address them," he said. City Manager Henry Schubert said he didn't think any customer input was solicited, but the proposal will be revisited during the city's budget deliberations Sept. 4. Largo 3A Leader, June 21, 2018management. "I think we'll be able to get ahead of the curve rather than being reactive," Undestad told city commissioners during a June 12 work session at City Hall. "With a lot of these calls we can be more proactive and better serve the community and the mental health part of that along with reducing some of the calls for service that are repetitive from these types of individuals that need some resources. So, I think this is a great opportunity and I look forward to and am excited for the partnership."Overcoming funding obstaclesUndestad said the program is something he has been pursuing for years, but the funding has never been available. At the same time, Largo's Housing Division began to hear more about an increase in crime and mental health issues as part of its public outreach during development of its annual Community Development Block Grant Action Plan. "We reached out to the police department to see if there was a way our CDBG funding could help with what they were looking at doing for some mental health services to better serve the community," said Arrow Woodard, a grant specialist with the Housing Division. The nearly $30,000 in grant money combined with added funds from the public safety staf ng plan, which will be adding of cers the next scal year, meant the city could afford the nearly $60,000 annual cost to fund the program.Navigating mental healthAnother key to forming the program was the involvement of Directions for Living, a Clearwater-based nonpro t that provides child welfare, behavioral health and homeless services throughout the county. In the past few years, it also has partnered with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office and Clearwater Police Department on similar programs. April Lott, president and CEO of Directions for Living, said she started getting involved with agencies several years ago because "the jail has become our largest mental health facility." Lott, who has also helped train hundreds of of cers on how to handle people suffering from mental health problems, said of cers who eld the calls are left with few options. They can either send them to jail, detain them under the Baker Act or leave them at home with no help, she said. "Currently, right now today, every Baker Act bed is full in Pinellas County, and if we needed to Baker Act somebody, we would be either diverting them to a hospital or, if it's a child, we are currently sending them out of county," Lott said, adding that the Baker Act is only for 72 hours and does not include treatment. "We have no more beds. So this initiative with Largo, with Pinellas County Sheriff's department and with Clearwater Police Department really was in an effort to try to get ahead of some of these calls for service that are labor intensive for law enforcement." Lott said the behavioral health navigator would perform the assessment on the scene and then do what is necessary to get that individual connected to services. If the person is unwilling, the navigator can put them on a high-call list and circle back to check on them later, which would hopefully reduce unnecessary 911 calls. In fact, data collected by the LPD showed that the same 15 people with mental health concerns made 731 calls in 2017. "Our hope really is that we would not only reduce calls for service to law enforcement but that we would get these individuals connected to the behavioral health services that they need to live safely and stably in their community," she said. City Manager Henry Schubert added that he thinks the efforts could also ultimately have a positive impact on re calls and code enforcement.Making a differenceLott said the program has yielded impressive results thus far. "In Clearwater, the calls for service from the same residence from the same individual has gone down 55 percent, because we are connected to that individual," she said. Commissioner John Carroll, a former Largo police chief, said follow-up will be the key to success and that whatever money the city spends on the program will be well worth it if it saves lives. "Recurring situations at the same address or with the same individual by different responding of cers always have the potential to end in a deadly force situation without this kind of training, without this kind of intervention," he said. Undestad said he hopes to get of cers trained and ready to go sometime between October and December.

and volunteers) to be involved with them to be able to build houses. It also helps the community to understand that it's not just these people being given a home, but there is also a lot of work and sweat equity involved in it, and I think it's important for them to see it rsthand."Planting a seedMike Sutton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas, said similar success in the nearby Dansville community, where the group completed 13 homes, attracted the attention of Pinellas County of cials. "They had a number of parcels, seven lots in the Greater Ridgecrest community, and they asked if we would be interested in potentially developing these properties," Sutton said. Since the county had owned the lots for several years, County Commissioner Pat Gerard, a former mayor of Largo, said the move made sense because Habitat is a wise investment. "We've put a lot of infrastructure improvements in there, sidewalks and drainage and all sorts of things," she said. "Now, we're just looking at this as the next step." The nonprofit reached out to community leaders and faith groups in Ridgecrest, and came to the conclusion that, since most residents have a low or moderate income level and little development work had been done in the area over the past 30 to 40 years, there was a need for affordable housing. While the county deeded the lots over, Habitat started to acquire its own properties. "There's quite a few vacant lots in the area, so between the seven lots the county donated and the ones we picked up, we've assembled about 22 lots," Sutton said. "Our hope is that the work we do there helps improve home values, improves the community and it provides affordable living opportunities for those that are living in Ridgecrest." Gerard said that is exactly what Habitat does. "They come in to our neighborhoods and build a few homes and all of a sudden you look around and the other homeowners in the area are starting to clean up their yards and take a little more pride in their property," she said. "So it can really be transformational and I think it will be, especially in the Baskins area that they're building in right now." Unlike some other developers, Bryant, who has been involved with the community since 1998, said Habitat is welcome in the community because residents know the homeowners, who are required to complete 350 to 450 volunteer hours as part of the homeownership program, are there to stay. "A lot of the residents have been there from the beginning and they, kind of like Habitat homeowners, moved in there at one point in their lives and they have lived there their whole lives," he said. "So I think it's a very critical piece that this continues to help the community have the same type of residents and the same kind of values." Sutton said the entire community, including Ridgecrest Elementary, the YMCA and the Friends of Ridgecrest, has embraced the group's mission. "The best part about this whole project so far has been that the neighborhood has been welcoming to Habitat and is excited about some building going on in their community," he said.The future of Greater RidgecrestThat building is ongoing, Sutton said. Nine homes are currently under construction and four or ve more will get started in the next couple of months. Work has also continued in Dansville, where the group has acquired six more lots and will begin developing them over the next year. Bryant said the addition of Habitat homeowners helps with the preservation of the community's identity and culture, because, as some of the older residents pass away, properties are being turned over to investors who are using them for rentals. "That kind of changes the flavor of the community. So having these homeowners, really true homeowners, moves the community back to the direction on which it was established," he said. Whether those new residents will annex into the city of Largo is uncertain. Bryant said failed attempts to annex the community, most recently in 2004, and decades of distrust have led to a complicated relationship, so city officials will need to make sure the community feels like it is guaranteed services. "It is improving, though, because the city of Largo is reaching out not just simply to annex them, but to have communications with them about the benefits of annexation," he said. "There's still some animosity because there's not a lot of trust with the city of Largo, and the county has forever been there and has really done a lot to help the community. So there's a lot more trust with the county." No matter where it is, Bowen, who spoke with Largo city of cials at the dedication, is just glad to have a place of her own where she can focus on her and her children's future. "I will never again have to worry about finding another apartment when the rent gets too high. I won't have to worry about moving my sons to a new school every year," she said. "We are now home."

HABITAT, from page 1A See LARGO, page 5A By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersPINELLAS PARK Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas is embarking on its most ambitious project yet after recently acquiring a 7.3-acre piece of land in Pinellas Park for $2.1 million. Mike Sutton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas, said the plan will be to build 75 single-family homes on the land at the northeast corner of 68th Street and 62nd Avenue North. "The largest project we've done to date has been a 51-home subdivision in Clearwater," he said. "So this would de nitely be by far the largest project we've undertaken." Sutton said the hope is to have a shovel in the ground by Jan. 1, but there's plenty to be done before reaching that point. "There's a lot of brainstorming still going on," he said. "One of the conversations we're having is potentially partnering with a couple of other organizations and doing some mixed income in there, so that's it's not just Habitat homes. Maybe we bring in a builder who would do some market-rate homes as well as maybe another affordable builder that could serve a different income level than we do." The seller hasn't been disclosed yet, but Sutton said an area Realtor connected Habitat with the owner, and they've been negotiating with her the past few months. "She really likes the idea of what Habitat for Humanity does and so she was willing to work with us," Sutton said, noting that the $2.1 million price was a good deal for the property. "A piece of property like that is rare and hard to nd in Pinellas County, so I'm sure there's a lot of developers out there that would've loved it." Habitat of Pinellas, which has an annual budget of about $15 million, has nearly doubled the number of homes it has built in the past three years. Last year, the organization built 59 new homes and served 18 families. It has built more than 400 homes in Pinellas since it broke ground on its first in 1985 and is the second-largest Habitat af liate in the nation based on new construction.Habitat buys land for 75 homesGroup pays $2.1M for 7.3-acre property in what would be its biggest project yet PINELLAS PARK "The best part about this whole project so far has been that the neighborhood has been welcoming to Habitat and is excited about some building going on in their community."– Mike Sutton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas

6A Viewpoints Leader, June 21, 2018SINGAPORE Because it started so differently with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inviting President Donald Trump to a face-to-face meeting, which the mercurial Trump promptly accepted Tuesday's summit in Singapore held out the promise of delivering something big and transformative. Instead, the summit wrapped up like most other international jaw fests with vague commitments and a piece of parchment that is not binding, but at best aspirational. The joint statement signed by Trump and Kim presented a step back. It omitted the usual U.S. demand that North Korean denuclearization be both "verifiable" and "irreversible." It's hard to not see that as a win for the hermit kingdom. "I gave up nothing," Trump insisted to reporters. Wrong. He gave up two words that would have made it clear that Pyongyang needs to deliver. Trump doesn't see that. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea," he tweeted later. I guess he thinks he's that good. To die-hard boosters, any criticism of a Trump accomplishment is a cheap shot. When pundits and policy luminaries criticize Trump, his base gures, he must be doing something right. This time, however, apart from the knee-jerk detractors, there are many who want this deal to succeed and who crave a reason to believe it can and will. But they're not seeing it. "We did expect more detail than what came out of the meeting some more solid direction of where we're going, on how we plan to get there and why this time is different," said Stimson Center research analyst Jenny Town. When reporters asked how long it will take to denuclearize the Korean peninsula, Trump refused to offer even a rough timetable. "It takes a long time to pull off complete denuclearization," he said. Trump noted that some experts say that it could take 15 years, but he didn't think that's accurate. "We don't know, but it will come pretty quickly," he said. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, issued a statement of support with a warning. "I am hopeful that the negotiations can achieve these goals. In the past, however, North Korea has used talks to stall while continuing its nuclear and missile programs, and empty promises cannot buy more time." Perhaps Portman also saw a president who doesn't trust in specific goals, but in trust itself. Trump repeatedly made the same points: Trump trusts Kim; Kim trusts Trump. So at the end of this improbable meeting between two long-time opponents, Trump ended up looking like other American presidents who got gulled by a hellhole strongman. At Sentosa Island, site of the summit, Trump posited that denuclearizing North Korea could save 30 million people or more. The metropolitan Seoul area has some 26 million residents. Trump argued he was willing to give Kim a global public relations victory if that's what it took to protect his potential targets. Ditto the odd video Trump showed Kim to sell North Korea's top gun on the prospect of ruling over a prosperous nation if he only puts away his big bombs. I have trouble believing the buddy-movie the White House played could prevent nuclear war but maybe this is the sort of weird play it takes to get there. Having seen Trump prevail when he seemed bound to fail, I don't count him out easily. And it would be something of a win if the Singapore summit yielded a freeze in Kim's nuclear and missile works, although that might have happened with "maximum pressure" sanctions alone. Bottom line: If Trump wants this handshake to denuclearize North Korea, he'll need more support in Washington. Moreover, if Trump wants the deal to last beyond his tenure, he has to sell it based on more than good feelings. Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or at 202-662-7391.

Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C. Doug's tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette's erce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle. Andy's editorial cartoons have become both hated and adored by daily readers. His work has been awarded by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors for best editorial cartoons on state issues and former Governor Charlie Crist referred to himself regularly as Marlette's biggest fan, despite the fact that he was also regularly a target in cartoons.New neighbors every week?Editor: Municipalities had the ability to control short-term rentals until 2011. At that time, the Florida Legislature passed a bill that prevented municipalities from implementing new zoning regulations for short-term rentals while also voiding any existing regulations if any changes were made. As recently as 2018, legislation has been presented that would open all residential neighborhoods up to short-term rentals despite any zoning or ordinance that restricts or regulates frequency or location. The negative results of any legislation that would remove ordinances regulating such rentals includes noise, traf c, parking, garbage and safety. Accordingly, all of these issues would be handled by local law enforcement. However, unlike a permanent resident who can be communicated with on a continuing basis, the weekly (or nightly) turnover of people would cause repeated violations of 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 of which are not for sale for any amount of tax revenue as touted by proponents of these bills. The best government is the government that is closest to the people. Home rule, which is the ability of local government to represent the wishes of their constituents, is slowly being eroded by Tallahassee politicians whose perceived values and opinions are not re ective of the people but more re ective of businesses and lobbyists. All of our elected of cials should make it a priority to educate the public on the negative effects that vacation rentals will have on their neighborhoods and the importance of our current zoning laws that separate business areas and residential communities.

The rst is the size of the buses. Once they were charming trolleys. Today they are full-sized city buses, albeit some dressed up to look like old-fashioned trolleys. Our streets in PAG are not as wide as Gulf Boulevard or Central Avenue. The buses are simple too large. They did considerable property damage to our side streets during the rst phase of our road construction. Also, the buses are much bigger than needed. I live near the end of the line and more times than not there is nobody either getting on or off the buses, which run every 20 minutes. The buses frequently speed, occasionally run stop signs and make illegal U-turns at 9th Avenue and Gulf Way rather than going down to First Avenue as they are supposed to. And, as our city commissioner pointed out, there is no reason for the buses to travel on any residential avenue except 21st and 1st, and yet they do without consequence. To be clear, we want public transportation in Pass-A-Grille, but we need it to be appropriately sized and driven with consideration for those of us who live here and our many visitors. Chris Core Pass-A-GrilleReader takes swing at golf courseEditor: This is in response to the Belleair town commissioners enthusiastically embracing more expansion plans for the unneeded Pelican Golf Club project. Does anybody realize that there are already 18 golf courses in Pinellas County? I'm not necessarily happy that there will be more commercial golf course grass being allowed to be watered every day, while I won't be allowed to water my own lawn because I'm on emergency drought water rationing again this summer. Scott Morton Largo The media have examined almost every nook and cranny of President Trump's life and personality. The Donald has commanded and mostly enjoyed more publicity-per-day than any White House occupant in modern history. But several areas remain unexplored. One of them is Trump's personal clothing the pajamas, shirts, underwear and sox that he presumably puts on each day of his life. Why should we care about this? Answer: we shouldn't. Except for one angle or aspect: when his freshly-washed garments are returned to his living quarters, does the president fold his own laundry, or does he allow someone else to do it? This question came to me this week as I folded my own laundry. I undertake this chore every couple of weeks, and I'm always comforted each time I do it. I arise from that task more relaxed and with lower blood pressure than when I started. I can't help wondering if President Trump might not be beneted if he, too, took the time to fold his laundry. For one thing, laundry warm and fresh from the dryer is delightfully clean and unthreatening. "Where else can Trump experience that? Not in the Oval Ofce, for sure. The problems, decisions and threats that land on the president's desk each day are uniformly of the PF (political feces) variety. This malodorous quality hangs over him everywhere he goes. Another reassuring benet of folding clean clothing is that, for at least during the short time required, you know what you're doing. No one looks over your shoulder to say, "hankies rst, then your shirts, and don't get your zippers tangled." You are the boss. You arrange each item exactly as you wish, and the hell with what MSNBC or Rachel Maddow might think. It would also help Trump's peace of mind if he had a cat to help him with the laundry. I don't know if the president owns a dog or cat. As my 38 Faithful Readers know, I have a cat named Ellee. She is a sweetheart who radiates serenity each time she enters the room. Her favorite time (except for chasing the laser beam I ash around the oor) is laundry-folding day. It usually involves three piles of clothing. I take the rst pile from the dryer, carry it into my bedroom and deposit it as a clump in the center of the bed. Sharp-eyed Ellee watches. Half an hour later as I return with the second installment of clothing, Ellee sits atop the rst array as if she had belonged there from the moment of her birth. "This is my kingdom, old man!" she seems to say. My response: I simply dump the latest laundry pile on top of her. For the third and nal segment of this panormna, Ellee is nowhere to be seen. Has she skulked off in a tiff, enraged at my ungentlemanly treatment of her? Not on your life, or mine. As I study the morass of my garments for a moment, I spot a likely aperture and remove a sock or washcloth to the side. A worshipful, thoroughly contented feline face peers out at me. Ellee's only laundry aw: she refuses to help me fold my clothing. Would Trump's indulging in such a ceremony in the White House family quarters with his own cat or other pet bring him the shot of serenity that Ellee gives to me? Who knows? Perhaps not. Rumor has it that the president sets a high value on being obeyed by all creatures (human or otherwise) in his presence. So a cat might not last long. As I write this column about clean laundry, I'm wondering if, or how many, readers will be wondering if I will follow up with some snide comments about Mr. Trump's personal dirty laundry. That's a fair question, I suppose, and I'm not above tossing in my two cents worth of criticism about Trump or any other high and mighty ofce-holders. But Trump is already being worked over, with apparent cause, by a baying chorus of journalistic hellhounds. My own comments would be drowned out by the howls of the big dogs, so this time I'll stay on the porch.A note to any readers who may have emailed me in recent days: my own email system collapsed during my purchase of a new laptop.

Business 7A Leader, June 21, 2018 BriefcaseRuth Eckerd Hall continues renovationCLEARWATER This summer, the north faade of Ruth Eckerd Hall will be torn down to expand the current 1,000-square-foot lobby to six times the size. The work is part of the ongoing Expanding the Experience renovation. The new space will include expanded food and beverage service and the Kate Tiedemann and Ellen Cotton Cabaret Theatre, which will be a new pre-show performance venue for students in the Ruth Eckerd Hall education programs and The Florida Orchestra. Technical students will collaborate with student performers to stage live performances before the main stage shows. The Dress Circle Lounge for Circle of Stars members will be doubled in size, giving it a modern makeover and locating it adjacent to the new grand lobby. A second bar will be added downstairs. Members will experience a new level of pre-show hospitality by having access to twice as many amenities as they currently enjoy in the much larger space. Construction will continue on the outside of the venue beginning with the England Family Welcome Pavilion, a new outdoor entertainment area that will welcome patrons to the venue on their walk from their vehicles. Students in the Ruth Eckerd Hall education programs, as well as other area youth and the Florida Orchestra, will perform live music. This pavilion will feature seating as well as food and beverage service and will be adjacent to the new arrival plaza and the Raymond James Financial Ticket Of ce. The new arrival plaza will be expanded to accommodate patrons with more room to drop off members of their party, avail themselves to valet parking or temporarily park their cars on non-show days while purchasing tickets at the Raymond James Financial Ticket of ce. The Raymond James Financial Ticket Of ce will be renovated to include a substantial overhang, designed to mirror the ones at the entrances to the Murray Theatre and Ruth Eckerd Hall's administrative of ces, which will provide protection from the elements. The rst phase of the E xpanding the Experience renovation began in 2015, when the Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall began and completed a $1.5 million dollar renovation that included a new ticket of ce, lobby and bar area, state-of-the-art upgrades in lighting and sound and a variety of seven new and available seating con gurations. Other phases included the recreation of the 350-person capacity Margarete Heye Great Room, a new HVAC system, physical and aesthetic improvements to the roadway leading from McMullen Booth Road to Ruth Eckerd Hall and changes to the main parking lot. A revised traf c pattern will enable patrons to pull directly in to the parking lot without having to drive around the building. New signage, lighting and landscape will be added along the roadway. The majority of these changes will be completed by August of this year.

(Butch) Salhany, 65, of Largo, FL, passed away at his home on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. While no one person is able to fully recount the passage of his life, facts and recollections include: Born on August 13, 1952, in Akron, OH, Butch spent his formative years with his parents in a household of three located in Akron's Ellet neighborhood. Following high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving 1970-1971, with his last duty assignment aboard the destroyer USS Vesole, based at Charleston, SC. At the conclusion of his military service, Butch returned to the Akron area, later relocated to Burgaw, NC, and nally, circa 1984, moved near Largo, FL, where his parents were residing in retirement. During the 1970s-90s, Bruce married four times. He made use of his wide range of mechanical skills for his livelihood; among these were gunsmithing, but his primary field was in the maintenance and customizing of motorcycles. Until he ceased riding in his mid-50s, Butch's principle outdoor diversion, throughout his adult life, centered on motorcycles. He also enjoyed times spent at nearby beaches with friends and family. Butch is preceded in death by his parents, Charles G. and Dorothy L. Salhany and also by a few of his close friends, including Mike Morgan. Surviving rst cousins reside in Iowa, Kentucky, and Ohio. Services including Military Honors will be held Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. at Bay Pines National Cemetery, 10000 Bay Pines Blvd., St, Petersburg, FL.

8A Community Leader, June 21, 2018 Faith & Family Briefs Health BriefsLutheran Services collects enough shoes for foster children for the next 15 monthsLARGO During the month of May Lutheran Services Florida partnered with 25 community organizations to host Step for Success, a shoe drive. The shoes were donated to Eckerd Connects Raising Hope, a store-front like room lled with necessities for foster kids. The goal was to collect 1,000 new pairs of shoes to represent the number of kids LSF serves through this program. With the help of the community, LSF surpassed that goal and collected 1,250 pairs of shoes, which will help out t kids in care for the next 15 months. "Kids in care who have lived through some of the most traumatic situations deserve this level of community support and engagement," said Heather King in a press release. King is the executive program director for LSF. "Every day many of these organizations that participated work together to provide stability and care for foster kids, but this campaign has brought us together in new and exciting ways. I promise to continue championing drives that bring out Tampa Bay's most compassionate people to help deliver daily life essentials to our foster kids." The generosity from Tampa Bay was overwhelming as local businesses like Kookie Krumbs in Dunedin were trading cookies for shoes. Anyone who brought in a pair of shoes received a half dozen cookies. The Tampa law rm of Frank Charles Miranda Trial Attorneys gave a $500 donation, which bought 25 name brand sneakers for teenage boys from the local Nike outlet. Local churches also joined the cause. Heritage United Methodist Church hosted a barefoot Sunday service where parishioners attended church that day with a new pair of shoes for the drive. Others directly involved in the system like the Florida Department of Children and Families in Pinellas/ Pasco collected an unbelievable 132 pairs of shoes. During a celebration party, all the shoes collected were carried by community partners to Eckerd's Rooms of Hope, which are set up like small stores and lled with fresh clothing, pajamas, shoes, hygiene items, diapers, school supplies and other necessities.

Outdoors 9A Leader, June 21, 2018Great weather and strong tides this past week were key factors for what has been some hot fishing. Inshore anglers are catching tarpon, snook and redfish, often all in the same trip. Offshore anglers are enjoying good catches of red snapper, gag grouper and red grouper. Tarpon enthusiasts have been gathering for the outgoing tides at Egmont the past several days. As the sh stack up in the deep hole they will often feed aggressively on the outgoing tide when thousands of crabs flush from the shallows of the bay out to the depths of the famous 90-foot hole. Free lining live crabs as you drift along with the tide can result in several hookups in a short period of time. Savvy anglers will often spend time either the day prior or on the incoming tide netting crabs to be prepared for the event. Tarpon can also be found in good numbers roaming the beaches as well as holding to some degree in all of the passes along our coastline. Snook are schooled up in big numbers right now around all of the passes. Jetties and nearby sand shoals offer the right environment for the snook to spawn. Target the strong part of either tide incoming or outgoing, with the afternoon outgoing being the best. Live grass grunts and pinfish free lined are your best bet. Red sh numbers are strong right now throughout the Intracoastal Waterway. Look for the mullet schools to move onto the flats during the incoming tide and red sh to follow. Bottom bouncing soft plastic jigs rigged weed-less will catch plenty of red sh as will a free-lined pin sh or a fresh chunk of lady sh. Offshore bottom shing has been excellent the past couple of weeks as we have had a long stretch of calm days. Red snapper will close July 21, however the gag and red grouper will remain open. Those making the run out to 100 feetplus have been doing the best on all three. Finding a bait school on the bottom will give you a chance to limit out on one spot. Live pin sh and grass grunts will work good. However, bring plenty of frozen sardines as they seem to be working a bit better.

Tyson Wallerstein By MARK SCHANTZTBN CorrespondentST PETE BEACH The city has to act quickly if it wants to preserve a legal doctrine that allows cities to argue customary use of beach areas by the public, above the mean high-water line, cannot be restricted or prohibited. A change in the state law prohibits municipalities from enacting ordinances that protect beach access to private or public beaches. To gain access to a restricted beach area, a city or group would have to get court approval after a lengthy legal battle. City Attorney Andrew Dickman advised city commissioners to protect its rights the city must enact a "customary use ordinance," codifying the public's customary use of beach areas above the mean highwater line, before the new law takes effect on July 1. The action is designed to reduce the impact of the state's attempt to make it more dif cult for local communities to raise and use a customary-use doctrine protection argument, Dickman explained. Dickman said he wants to preserve the city's "ability to be able to raise the defense in court if the city has to." The city attorney explained in "Legislature adopted as a last-minute walk-on' CS/ HB 631 that is confusing and perceived by some to preempt local governments from adopting or maintaining ordinances that regulate "dry" sandy areas of beaches, particularly those areas owned by upland owners, subject to the "customary use" by the public for recreation and other customary uses." The city has to act quickly because "local governments have home rule authority to regulate all lands within its jurisdiction for the public health, safety and welfare, and the statute does not deprive a governmental entity from raising customary use as an af rmative defense in any proceeding challenging an ordinance adopted before July 1, 2018," he explained. Mayor Al Johnson said taking action before July 1 could give the city a head-start and if the city does nothing it could get involved in long legal battles. Some residents have already tried to erect fences to keep the public off their beachfront property, commissioners noted. Commissioner Ward Friszolowski said people expect to have access and use of the beaches in Florida and this is a good step at this time. "As of this date, there are no pending proceedings, but there have been situations in the city in reaction to the new statute, and it is impossible to predict what proceedings may happen in the future," Dickman said. "The statute makes establishment of customary use' by the public a vaguely de ned judicial process, many questions remain about the cost and what happens after the court rules. "This draft ordinance is somewhat patterned after one pending in Naples and Fernandina Beach. There is reason to believe that this statute may be unconstitutional and could be amended in the future. This ordinance preserves the city's right to raise customary use as a defense in a legal proceeding," he advised. Commissioners advised Dickman and staff they want to pass the ordinance before the new law takes effect.City bans marijuana dispensariesIn other legal action, St. Pete Beach commissioners passed an ordinance, on nal reading, to ban medical marijuana dispensaries. Johnson said he has "no issue with medical marijuana. I have an issue with the state coming in and telling us how to run these things." Like in most other cities, legislators in Tallahassee created dissension over home rule more than a debate concerning medical marijuana dispensaries; in a state where more than three-fourths of voters approved medical cannabis use. Many municipalities object to state legislators telling them if they want to approve medical marijuana dispensaries they have only two choices; if a city wants to permit medical marijuana dispensaries it must regulate them the same as pharmacies. The only other alternative is to ban marijuana dispensaries altogether. Commissioner Terri Finnerty said this gives St. Pete Beach time to see what happens in other areas or with the state Legislature.Attorney: City must act to protect beach access ST. PETE BEACH Participants in the amateur AquaX personal watercraft class prepare for a race June 16 as part of the two-day Grand Prix of the Gulf at St. Pete Beach, held in front of the Postcard Inn, attracting a crowd of spectators.

10A Community Leader, June 21, 2018 By LIL CROMERTBN CorrespondentBELLEAIR June 13 was 25 years to the day that Officer Jeffery Tackett lost his life while on duty in Belleair. A groundbreaking ceremony was held in the park adjacent to the Town Hall parking lot; the park was officially named the Jeffery W. Tackett Park, and the dedication was the town's way of honoring his memory and his sacri ce. The event was slated to be held outside on the site of the park, but lightning in the area caused the event to be moved inside Town Hall. Chief Bill Sohl, who hosted the event, was amazed at the turnout, somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 people. The FHP presented the colors and one member of the detail sang the national anthem. Largo Police officer Randy Chaney was the rst to respond to "of cer down" 25 years ago. He gave an emotional account of the night he found Tackett shot to death outside a condo complex in Belleair. Tackett had found a suspect attempting to break into an occupied residence. The keynote speaker was Deputy Mayor Karla Rettstatt. "Each and every day, law enforcement officers put themselves at risk keeping their communities safe and secure," she said. "Most of us take this for granted as we move through our day. In our small town, our law enforcement of cers and staff have become more like family. So, on June 13, 1993, when Jeffrey Warren Tackett, a young 28-yearold patrolman, was called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice, not only did we lose a great officer, we lost a family member. We lost a friend. Tackett was a ve-year veteran who excelled in his duties. His death forever impacted his wife, his brother, his parents and our town." Tackett's mother received a proclamation and cut the ceremonial ribbon, and his widow, Alice Tackett Delana, received a resolution proclaiming the park be dedicated to Tackett. The commission and staff were there as well as representatives from police departments of Largo, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Gulfport and Pinellas Schools. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office and Florida Highway Patrol were also represented. The staff will be working with the Town Commission and private donors on site plans to complete a full park renovation.Town park named in honor of fallen of cer BELLEAIR Photo courtesy of LIL CROMERThe FHP honor guard presents colors during a dedication ceremony for the Jeffrey W.

Clearwater CRA announces call for mural artistsCLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater’s Community Redevelopment Agency, in partnership with the Clearwater Public Art and Design Board and Downtown Development Board, is seeking artists to design and paint a series of murals on public and private properties throughout Downtown Clearwater. Applications are due Monday, July 9, and the selected artists will be noti ed by Friday, July 20. Murals must be completed by Jan. 31, 2019. The budget for each mural will range from $5,000 to $20,000 depending on the size and complexity of the artwork. The Clearwater CRA is charged with implementing the downtown vision for Clearwater, which is the urban core and the city’s historical center. Downtown Clearwater will be revitalized through the creation of a high quality public realm designed to weave art and culture into the fabric of everyday life. As part of the public art strategy, the CRA is commissioning artists to design and paint ve to seven murals that will be visible to the public as they are walking and driving through Downtown Clearwater. This is the rst large scale mural project in Downtown Clearwater, and it will help set the tone for future public art projects. The CRA seeks to establish a visual look and feel that distinguishes Downtown Clearwater from Clearwater Beach and surrounding communities. We are seeking experienced mural artists with a strong point of view and the ability to create complex, engaging designs. Artists are welcome to use Clearwater’s history, signature events and physical environment as inspiration; however, the nal designs must go beyond the simple visual representation of an object or event. The following sites have been con rmed to receive murals. The exact size of the mural and location on the building will be determined in collaboration with the CRA staff, the artist and the property owner. The sites are:  Garden Street Parking Garage – 28 N.

Tickets start at $25. Call 727-791-7400 or visit McGuinn is the co-founder of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Byrds, whose hits included “Eight Miles High,” Turn! Turn! Turn!,” and “Mr. Tambourine Man.” McGuinn was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create the genre known as “folk-rock.” McGuinn’s solo career began in 1973 and has yielded 10 albums, a Grammy Award-nomination and extensive touring and performing for enthralled audiences ever since. According to McGuinn’s bio, provided by Skyline Music, the innovative guitarist was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scene when he co-founded The Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, McGuinn toured and performed folk music with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director and guitarist on “Judy Collins #3.” McGuinn, a Chicago native, studied at the Old Town School of Folk Music and was active on Chicago’s folk scene, where he was strongly in uenced as a teenager by Bob Gibson. Within a few weeks of nishing high school, McGuinn was working with the Limeliters in California, playing guitar and banjo on their album “Tonight: In Person.” McGuinn is also on the Chad Mitchell Trio’s albums “Mighty Day on Campus” and “The Chad Mitchell Trio at the Bitter End.” After touring with singer Bobby Darin, McGuinn moved to New York at Darin’s request to work for his publishing company, TM Music, in the fabled Brill Building as a songwriter. He and Frank Gari co-wrote the song “Beach Ball” and performed it with Darin, as the City Surfers in July 1963. After hearing the Beatles for the rst time at the Brill Building, McGuinn began playing folk songs to a rock beat in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village. His experiments in merging folk and rock didn’t please the folk purist, so he moved to Los Angeles to work at the Troubadour. It was after an opening set for Hoyt Axton that Gene Clark approached McGuinn with appreciation for his new musical blend. They started writing songs together in the folk den of the Troubadour. It wasn’t long before David Crosby joined them and added his unique concepts of harmony to the duo, thereby completing the underpinnings for one of the most influential bands of the ‘60s. Within a few months, McGuinn, Clark & Crosby were looking to expand their group. Conga player Michael Clarke was recruited because he looked like two of the Rolling Stones. Mandolin player Chris Hillman was asked to join the group and to learn how to play the bass guitar. During a Thanksgiving dinner the band settled on the name “Byrds,” and success was just around the corner. Columbia Records signed the Byrds in January 1965 and they recorded their rst No. 1 hit, “Mr. Tambourine Man.” In 1968 McGuinn and Hillman hired Gram Parsons and headed for Nashville where they recorded the now critically acclaimed “Sweetheart of the Rodeo.” McGuinn disbanded the Byrds in 1973 to pursue his dream of a solo career. He made ve solo albums on Columbia Records. McGuinn rejoined Gene Clark and Chris Hillman in 1978 on Capitol Records for three albums. In 1981 McGuinn decided it was time to return to his folk roots and began touring solo acoustic. Photo by JOHN CHIASSON/SKYLINE ARTISTS AGENCYRoger McGuinn performs June 30 at Capitol Theatre.

A&E, from page 2B Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersDUNEDIN – Works from more than 100 craft artisans will be on display and available for purchase at the 16th annual Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival, set for Saturday and Sunday, June 23-24, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Main Street in downtown Dunedin. The snowbirds are of cially gone, leaving residents of Dunedin and the Tampa Bay area to enjoy the lazy days of summer. The Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival is a local tradition boasting summer green market wares as well as thousands of hand-crafted made-in-America artisan-created pottery, jewelry, paintings, and more. Presented by American Craft Endeavors, the two-day outdoor festival will feature more than 100 craft artisans from around the country. The popular, outdoor craft festival offers a chance for residents to peruse and shop for practical and whimsical works of quality, handmade art while enjoying the beautiful Florida weather – all without the high-season crowds. The juried outdoor craft showcase will present unique gifts and original crafts at prices set to suit all budgets. Participating crafters are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants. All crafters remain on site for the duration of the festival. Attendees can expect to see a vast array of artistic media, such as folk art, pottery, personalized gifts, handmade clothing, basket weaving, beaded utensils, candles, cork assemblage, fabric design, ber quilts, fused wax and glass, hair accessories, handbags and accessories, handmade cards, leather, mosaic, wood, painted wood, plaster craft and stained glass. Pets on leashes are always welcome to join their human companions as they stroll through the festival, which includes a full greenmarket of live plants, handmade soaps, delicious edibles and more. Adding to the pleasure of the outing, patrons can meet the artisans behind the works and discover the techniques and inspirations behind each creation. A portion of the proceeds will bene t the Downtown Dunedin Main Street local economy. Gulfport’s Robin Short is among the Pinellas County crafters taking part in this year’s event. She has been quilting and sewing for most of her life and has been inspired by her mother, Ellen Plankey, who is a wellknown award-winning artist. Short loves putting together great fabrics, colors and high-quality products to create usable and unique items for her customers. A lot of her ideas come from customers who can’t nd exactly what they are looking for. She then goes home, develops a pattern that will be useful and fun. She has been working with American Craft Endeavors for just over four years and truly enjoys working with them and the customers they bring out to the craft fairs. St. Petersburg College student Ashley Brown will bring her “collision creations” to the annual Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival. Brown describes herself as a “one-of-a-kind car metal artist.” Every piece of art she creates is unique and 100 percent re-purposed from crashed cars. “I’ve been making this type of art for ve years now,” Brown said in an artist bio provided by American Craft Endeavors. “Each piece is designed, drawn, then cut out of metal according to my customers’ requests.” Brown creates everything herself with her own hands out of car steel or aluminum, and in any color imaginable. “The art I create is and has always been a passion of mine,” Brown said. “I rst recognized my love for art at an early age, but when I entered high school I knew that art was my passion and will be my future.” Terry Andrews of Ocala will take part in this year’s Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival. The award-winning glass sculptor uses copper and fused glass to create his unique and oftentimes whimsical sculptures. His work can be seen in private collections around the world and graces the permanent collections of the Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as the Carrolton Museum of Contemporary Art in Carrolton, Georgia. Andrews also participates in juried ne art festivals across the country. This Florida native is also an accomplished musician. Originally from the Tampa area, he pursued a career in music until 1994. Always having an interest in glass, Andrews dabbled with the medium, rst with blown glass and lamp work, heavy at and carved glass sculpture. His work has now evolved to include copper and fused glass sculptures. The fusing work is done in a kiln. Like many of Florida’s seasonal residents, Chris Adamo splits his time between his home in Cape Cod and his winter escape in Sarasota. Together with his wife Nancy, Chris creates and sells unique handcrafted jewelry. But the Adamos’ idea of running a business didn’t include the “brick and mortar” model. Instead, they opted to sell their creations online and at local craft and artisan fairs. The result is inspired, distinctive jewelry crafted from the nest gemstones, crystals and silver. “We take our inspiration from the beautiful coastal areas where we live,” Chris says on his website, “but, also in the beauty and spirituality of the natural world around us.” Annette Kapfer of St. Pete Beach creates kiln-fused dichroic glass artwork that is then creatively patchworked, affecting three-dimensional views of nature’s art objects. Though the technique is time-consuming, the results are aesthetically pleasing and readily appreciated. Festival-goers will nd an extensive selection of Kapfer’s stunning earrings and pendants on display and available for purchase. Annette grew up just outside of Oslo, Norway, but relocated to Florida. Already a collector of glass objects, she discovered the seemingly magical properties of dichroic glass, which she uses in her studio to capture the spirit of the restless ocean. St. Petersburg’s Don and Cristina Williams are also scheduled to take part in this year’s festival. These two pottery artists create beautiful raku ceramic pieces. Each one is thrown by hand and totally unique. The Williamses frequent many pottery shows, arts and crafts shows and galleries around the Florida area. “I was born to do art,” Don said in an email. “I love it, live it and love to share with others. I have been doing pottery almost 30 years now. My wife Cristina is very talented as well and we do a lot of collaborative pieces like our penguins and cats. People can see us and our work at the many shows we do around Florida with Howard Alan Events & American Craft Endeavors.” The Williamses collaborate on each piece they create, perfecting their skills in the ancient Japanese art of shino glaze, a process that has not changed in centuries, yet yields a different effect with each nished piece. They welcome the opportunity to meet and speak with art enthusiasts and potential investors.About American Craft EndeavorsAmerican Craft Endeavors produces some of the nation’s most exciting high-end juried craft shows in many of Florida’s vibrant downtown areas and popular tourist destinations including the Corey Avenue Art and Craft Festivals in St. Pete Beach, the Siesta Fiesta Craft Festival and the Downtown Stuart Craft Festivals, among others.

It’s a tribute to them and all American heroes and we are overjoyed that the lm of the Broadway musical will now be able to reach the entire country.”4B Entertainment Leader, June 21, 2018Fathom Events to present ‘Bandstand’ at select theaters Image courtesy of FATHOM EVENTS“The Boys Are Back – Bandstand: The Broadway Musical” comes to movie theaters June 25 and 28.

BY SUBMITTING YOUR PHOTOS, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE PERMISSION FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER AND THE COUPLE FOR PUBLICATION.I nvitations are a key component of wedding planning. Not only can invitations set the tone for a wedding — giving guests an idea of whether it is formal or casual while offering clues to the theme — but also they are essential for conveying important information about the festivities. While it was once common to work with a specialized printing and engraving company when ordering wedding invitations, couples tying the knot now have more options. Due in large part to computer and internet access, and myriad user-friendly design applications, it’s easier than ever to design high-quality wedding invitations. According to the wedding industry survey site, the average price for 150 invitations and response cards is $245. To maximize ef ciency and come away with wedding stationery they will love, couples can employ the following tips and techniques.Start with the paperThe heavier the stock, the more luxurious the invitations will feel. Quality stock also costs more. Wedding invitations should be printed on substantial stock so they don’t bend or feel imsy. Industry experts say that 100 percent cotton paper is the most costly paper. Couples can choose from linen stock and textured surfaces as well. Expect to pay more for natural or handmade papers. Those concerned about price can choose the highest-quality stock within budget and then play with other invitation elements to conserve funds.Engraving and letterpressEngraving and letterpress techniques are an art form and create unique wedding invitations. Engraving creates raised lettering while letterpress presses the lettering into the paper. Many people do not have the equipment necessary to produce these designs at home, and if they want a truly high-end invitation, they’ll need to use a professional printing service. Thermography is an alternative that can deliver raised print using heat and special inks.Printing companiesOptions abound in regard to in-store and online printing companies. Many companies offer self-service design templates that enable customers to tweak text and placement of some graphic elements and then have the invitations printed and shipped to their homes. Companies may provide stock samples and examples of lettering so that couples can touch and see the invitations prior to placing an order. At-home printingOne of the more accessible invitation production methods is at-home printing. However, there are some limitations when printing at home. For example, couples who do not have a high-end printer may nd that the text on their invitations is not as crisp and the ink may smudge. Also, paper options may be limited to what the tray feeder can accommodate. Stock that is 80 pounds or 12-point stock is preferable, but anything more may jam around the print head. It may take some trial and error (and wasted paper) to perfect alignment and achieve the desired look. DIYers also need to know about “bleed” designs. According to the advice site A Practical Wedding, bleed is a printing term for design elements or images extending beyond the trim edge so that unwanted white space is eliminated. Again, it may take some practice to get the desired look. Couples have many different options when designing their wedding invitations, and some may even be able to design and produce their own.
