Police say they began investigating on June 19 when of cers were called to the house after four families showed up at the same time to take possession of the home. The suspects in the case, Nicole Johnson, 29, and David Johnson, 32, are accused of portraying themselves as the owners of the residence and entering into multiple lease agreements with at least 12 families. Police say the Johnsons received large deposits from the families, ranging from $1,000 up to $4,300 per victim, adding up to more than $25,000. One of the families had traveled from Indiana with all of their possessions in a U-Haul trailer. Because of the relocation expenses and the money collected by the Johnsons, the family had completely exhausted their resources. Police say they "were fortunate enough to receive a small amount of cash from neighbors at the scene in order to pay for gas to cover the return trip to Indiana." "Multiple other families were forced to scramble in order to nd a place to live, having packed up their previous residence in anticipation of moving into the Lexington Court home," according to police. Police say the Johnsons used Facebook and other social media sites seeking out families looking for rental properties. They would then directly solicit these families, contacting them by online texting or Facebook messenger with the "opportunity to rent a house in a desirable neighborhood." The victims were given tours of the home, provided with printed and signed lease agreements and given receipts for associated deposits. Police say almost all of the families did their "due diligence and researched the home and the suspects involved." The names provided by the suspects to the victims matched tax records and property appraiser records, "lending a high degree of legitimacy to the scam," according to police. The Johnsons then stalled the victims and coordinated the move-in dates for the involved families to coincide with the Johnsons' departure from the state. "At this point, it appears the Johnsons ed to New York only days before the victims were scheduled to take possession of the rental property," according to a press release. Victims are continuing to come forward as the investigation unfolds. Anyone who was defrauded is encouraged to call 727587-6757 or 727-586-7475.

Concept No. 2 features the word Largo on a large pillar with raised lettering, various height green screens around the pillar, a retaining wall and annual or perennial arrangements. Concept No. 3 includes a punched-steel Largo panel rising from a wedge wall, locally sourced solar panels for site amenities, a triangular green screen with custom backlit glass medallions and a meandering path. By visiting LoveLargoFL.com through July, Perez said residents can check out the concepts and take a virtual fly-through. Also, traveling exhibits will be placed in City Hall, the Largo Library, Community Center and other facilities. The proposals were presented to the Community Redevelopment Agency and Community Redevelopment advisory boards June 25, and Perez said members voted in favor of the ongoing design process without selecting any one concept. The City Commission also will get a presentation during its July 10 work session. Perez said he hopes to have a final design by August and have it approved before the end of this fiscal year so construction can commence as planned in the next scal year. One thing not included in the proposal was a piece of the past that Commissioner Curtis Holmes suggested reviving: a clock tower. In 2009, the iconic Largo Clock Tower, which was constructed at the southwest corner of East Bay Drive and Seminole Boulevard shortly after completion of Largo Central Park, was demolished because of the tower's decay. Officials said the plaza will incorporate elements of the city's new community brand, so the focus will be on looking ahead and not behind.Addressing concernsIn April, members of the City Commission and Finance Advisory Board expressed concerns about the potential cost of the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District project $65,000 for the design and $435,000 for construction in scal year 2019. Perez emphasized it's still early in the process, but said the contract with the design consultant, Booth Design Group, came in under budget at just over $40,000. He added that the current concepts are well within the $435,000 budgeted, but, depending on public input, they could still change. Also in April, Mayor Woody Brown agreed that the .69acre piece of property that was once a used car lot could use improvements, but said he was hesitant to spend money on it now when it might be better utilized later as a way to connect downtown to Central Park. Perez said the designs don't use hardscaped features throughout the whole property, so it provides exibility for potential future improvements, such as a pedestrian overpass, which he said might not even be feasible at that location. "I think Rick and the team have done a really good job in trying to design this space so that it's a usable triangle for other concepts and ideas in the future," Brydon added. Perez said another benefit of the project is that it will help establish an identity for downtown by working in tandem with the upcoming West Bay Drive trailhead project, which aims to beautify the area with new access bridges, an overhaul of the existing pedestrian overpass and improved open space for activities on both sides of the trail. "This is not only a gateway feature but also almost a bookend to what is going to be constructed at the trailhead for the Pinellas Trail, which is on the opposite end of what we consider downtown," he said.

County 7A Leader, June 28, 2018 Police Beat Around Pinellas Clearwater man charged with DUI in crash in Hillsborough CountyFlorida Highway Patrol charged a 35-year-old Clearwater man June 23 with DUI with property damage, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash on U.S. 41 near Valroy Road in Hillsborough County. Troopers say Wendel Jamel James was driving a 2018 Toyota Camry, traveling northbound in the inside southbound lane of U.S. 41 at speeds in excess of 100 mph about 10:33 p.m. An off-duty Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy, who was also traveling on U.S. 41, observed James traveling the wrong way coming from Manatee County. Colleen Switt, 26, of Ruskin was driving a 2016 Hyundai Accent, traveling southbound in the inside lane of U.S. 41. When Switt's vehicle entered the left turning lane, the right side of James' Camry sideswiped the right side on the Accent. After the impact, the Accent rotated and came to rest in the grass median. The Camry continued in the wrong direction until the deputy did a U-turn into the Camry's path at which point the vehicle stopped. Switt suffered minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital. James was uninjured.Cheerleading coach charged with sexual battery on minorOLDSMAR Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives charged a 28-year-old Oldsmar man June 22 with four counts of sexual battery on a minor. Detectives say Victor Valenty was a cheerleading coach at Storm All-Star Cheer and Dance, 514 Corner Drive in Brandon, which is where he met the 15-year-old victim. The crimes occurred from September 2016 through April 2017 at his residence in Oldsmar. Hillsborough County Sheriff's Of ce arrested Valenty June 21 for reportedly engaging in inappropriate activities with a minor female. That same day, Pinellas deputies interviewed Valenty at the Hillsborough County Jail, 1201 Orient Road in Tampa, where they say he admitted to the allegations. Pinellas detectives presented the case to the Pinellas/Pasco State Attorney's Of ce and a warrant was issued for four counts of sexual battery (custodial authority). Hillsborough County deputies served the warrant for Valenty at the Hillsborough County Jail June 22. He will be transferred later to the Pinellas County Jail for his charges. Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office announced June 24 that Valenty had been charged with additional felonies, including obscene communication travel to meet after use of a computer to lure child, use of a two-way communication device to facility felony, and obscene communication use of computer to seduce/ solicit/lure child. Hillsborough deputies also said a second victim had been identi ed, a 17-year-old female. Deputies say that in the early part of June, Valenty had inappropriate sexual contact with the 17-year-old at his residence in Oldsmar. They say he admitted communicating with the girl through SnapChat and the telephone.Clearwater woman cited in crash with deputyCLEARWATER A 23-year-old Clearwater woman was cited for failure to yield in a crash with a Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy June 21. According to deputies with the Major Accident Investigation Team, Deputy Justin Gould, 40, was on-duty and traveling northbound on Missouri Avenue in his unmarked 2010 Dodge Avenger about 10:42 p.m. Miranda Clark was driving her 2013 Chevrolet Spark, traveling westbound on Santa Rosa Street, approaching Missouri Avenue. Deputies say Clark stopped at the stop sign at Santa Rosa Street and Missouri Avenue. Then she proceeded to turn southbound onto Missouri Avenue, pulling out in front of Deputy Gould's vehicle. The front of Gould's vehicle struck the front driver's side of Clark's vehicle. Clark was transported to a local hospital to be evaluated as a precautionary measure. Gould was not injured.Â‘Career criminalÂ’ accused of home invasion robberyPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police arrested what they are calling a "career criminal" in connection with a home invasion robbery that occurred about 5:50 a.m. June 17 in the 9300 block of Mainlands Boulevard. Police say Joshua Bartle, 44, a St. Petersburg transient, entered the residence by cutting away a screen and unlocking a door. Once inside, he confronted the homes occupants, a 68-year-old female and 74-yearold male, while they were in bed. He pointed a rearm at the victims and told them that if they gave him money, they would not be harmed. After the victims gave him their money, he forced the female victim to give him the keys to her vehicle. Police say Bartle was unable to use an attached key fob and then ordered the female victim at gunpoint to unlock and start the vehicle. Bartle entered the vehicle and left the scene. Neither victim was injured during the robbery. Police located Bartle a short while later at the Bayside Inn, 9359 U.S.19 N., seated inside the stolen vehicle, a 2016 red Chevrolet Sonic. He ed on foot. Police apprehended him following a short chase. The loaded rearm and money were recovered at the scene. Police say that Bartle is a career criminal with prior convictions for burglary, dealing in stolen property, armed robbery, armed carjacking, robbery with a rearm, and attempted armed robbery. Bartle was released from prison in 2017 following a 10-year prison sentence for burglary and traf cking in stolen property. Bartle was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on charges of resisting an of cer without violence, felon in possession of a rearm, armed burglary, robbery (with a rearm) and aggravated assault (with a rearm). Bail was set at $315,150.Â– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTERRCS Pinellas to host free legislative luncheon July 17CLEARWATER RCS Pinellas will host a legislative luncheon Tuesday, July 17, 11 a.m., in the Ancestral Hall at Mount Olive African Methodist Episcopal Church, 600 Jones St., Clearwater. Kirk Ray Smith, RCS Pinellas president and CEO, will discuss the organization's response to the housing and homeless crisis facing Pinellas County, in addition to addressing the mission's vision and directionality moving forward. "Having ongoing and meaningful conversations with local lawmakers is often overlooked by some nonpro ts and other charities. In many cases, this is due to a mythical perception that says given our tax-exempt status, we cannot engage government officials individually and/or collectively on issues that are important to us," said Smith in a press release. "While it's not a best practice to publicly endorse any single person or political position using the organization's resources or platform, it is however, a healthy practice to seek opportunities to share mission, vision and directionality with decision makers on a consistent basis. Our legislative luncheon gives us a chance to do just that." This free event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include a question-and-answer session. Lunch will be provided. RSVP is required by July 3. To RSVP, email Lauren Misa at lauren.misa@rcspinellas. org or call 727-482-1911. For information on RCS, visit www.rcspinellas.org or call 727-584-3528.Food arrives just in time to feed hungry children during summerST. PETERSBURG It was still dark outside when two tractor trailers loaded with surplus food arrived at a warehouse operated by the St. Petersburg Free Clinic. Working in partnership with the Juvenile Welfare Board, staff unloaded 43 pallets of pre-boxed, shelf-stable meals. This surplus food had been staged by FEMA in South Florida during Hurricane Irma but was about to expire. "We became aware through our local legislative delegation that FEMA had surplus food available; pre-packaged meals with shelf dates that were about to expire," said JWB Chief Executive Of ce Dr. Marcie Biddleman. "The timing couldn't have been better with children just out of school for the summer." Since over half of Pinellas County School students rely on free and reduced-price school lunches, many children struggle to access healthy food when school is out. In Pinellas County alone, 36,000 children are considered food insecure, and 7,000 chronically hungry. JWB oversees a childhood hunger collective initiative focused on filling food gaps for kids, especially over the summer. One way is through the federally-funded Summer BreakSpot program. But more meals are needed to nourish hungry children. "In total, our county received 26,400 shelf-stable meals," said Biddleman. For more information about the Juvenile Welfare Board's childhood hunger collective initiative, visit www.jwbpinellas.org.

10A Viewpoints Leader, June 28, 2018WASHINGTON It's June and the crush of undocumented immigrants at the U.S. border with Mexico has hit a crisis point. Government of cials are housing migrants in tents and separating some children from their parents. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors attempt to cross the southern border; some 90,000 are expected to be apprehended by year's end. A former top administration official defends the government's policy: "We have to send a clear message. Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn't mean your child gets to stay." The year was 2014. Barack Obama was president and the quote was uttered by Hillary Clinton, Obama's secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 who also plainly stated that thousands of children "should be sent back" to their families. So why are news outlets treating the 2018 border crisis as if it is the worst? First, President Donald Trump is the rst president in recent memory to push strong enforcement of federal immigration law. His "zero-tolerance" policy announced in April directed immigration officials to charge and detain all undocumented immigrants apprehended at the border, which led to mass family separations. The Obama administration split families and housed migrants in tents, but it also released many apprehended at the border while giving them orders to appear before an immigration judge. This is the system Trump derides as "catch and release" a system discredited by the high number of bene ciaries who don't show up at court. According to federal statistics, 25 percent of the 186,434 immigration cases completed for 2016 were decided in absentia meaning the undocumented immigrant didn't show up. Second, Trump's rhetoric is in ammatory and words have consequences. When he announced his candidacy in 2015, Trump described immigrants from Mexico as criminals, drug dealers and rapists. Just last week he said immigrants "infest our country." Trump didn't enhance his credibility when he blamed Democrats for forcing family separations, trying to paper over the fact that "zero tolerance" was his administration's decision. Also, the point of the family separation is to deter more families from making the dangerous trek to the border but that's the point Trump low balls. Third, politics and media bias lean against enforcement. Broadcast news outlets have aired heart-breaking scenes of children crying for their parents with no context. News organizations ran photos of a crying 2-yearold Honduran girl who represented victims of family separation. Problem: She and her mother were not separated. Do the parents have a legal claim to asylum? Not an issue. Also not an issue, the fact that critics are complaining that Trump is enforcing federal laws they have failed to change. Consider the push for a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants brought into the country when they were minors, also known as Dreamers. Obama provided them with temporary legal status with his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in 2012. But Obama failed to keep his 2008 campaign promise to pass a big immigration bill in his first year, when Democrats controlled the White House and Congress. When there was a vote on the Dream Act in 2010, it failed to get the 60 votes needed to pass in the Senate. Democrats now say they won't vote for GOP legislation to protect DACA recipients because they object to Republicans using DACA recipients as hostages. It's as if they'd rather have the issue than the win. When it comes to the Dream Act and family separation, argued Mark Krikorian of the proenforcement Center for Immigration Studies, the left's goal "is to make sure the parents also are released. They want children to be human shields so that if you bring a kid with you, you get a get-out-of-jail-free card." Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ reviewjournal.com or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter. Debra Saunders As an educator who has taught in both district-run and charter public schools, I am astounded when I read articles or hear claims from school board members around the state that charter schools take away funding from the local public-school system. That is not the case. Charter schools provide options for families who can't afford to live in communities with A-rated neighborhood schools. Every student deserves the same opportunity to be educated, and charters just open another door for them to receive what they rightfully deserve. These parents should not be shamed for their choices. What's more, my own experience in Hillsborough County shows charter schools are partners in our local public-school system. I have lived in the Riverview area for five years, and I have seen tremendous growth in the area. With many homes being built, new families with children have moved to this part of the county. Now nearby schools, especially high-performing ones, have become overcrowded. Charter schools like BridgePrep Academy, where I teach kindergarten, help relieve the strain on the school district. Our school helps students reach the same standards as other public schools, and offers an environment where instruction is more individualized and tailored to each student's needs. I can personally attest, as both a teacher and a parent. I have experienced hardship securing a quality education for my own children. When I relocated to Hillsborough County from Miami-Dade in 2012, I was faced with minimal educational choices. My children were zoned to a school that had received consecutive Ds. For me, it was not a suitable option. As a single mother, homeschooling was not an option, either. I had heard many negative stories about charter schools. But I was blessed with the opportunity to send my children to Winthrop Charter. It was a great t for my kids, and one of the best decisions I have made. Fast-forward a few years later, they now attend the school where I teach. I have watched their love for learning ourish. They are in an environment where they are more comfortable expressing themselves, while also being challenged academically. Thousands of families all over this state are in similar positions. We do not all have the opportunity to buy our way into high-class neighborhoods with high-performing neighborhood schools. But we still believe our children deserve a high-class education. Many people see the brand-new charter schools opening and assume we labor in luxury. But charter schools actually operate at a disadvantage. Many district-run public schools have been in operation for years and have accrued many curricular essentials over time. We are not allotted the same essential resources. Nor are funds readily available to purchase them. It is a fact that charter schools have historically received less funding per student than district schools. Although recent legislation has helped make funding more equal, charter schools like my current school still must hold fundraisers to provide vital student services like developmental reading assessment kits, accommodation testing materials and math manipulatives. While the Hillsborough County school district has one of Florida's most responsive charter school support teams, we still do not receive the same support from the central of ce as our counterparts in the district. I have educated young minds for 12 years. Most of my career has been in district-run schools: six years in Miami-Dade County and two years with the Hillsborough County district before I began teaching in charters, rst with Charter Schools USA and now BridgePrep. Every year, my goal has been to give my students the best I can to prepare them for their future. I believe that is what every educator wants for their students. We are all in this together. We all want our students of varying needs and abilities to receive necessary support services. We all rely on support and appreciation from parents, the community, administrators and our professional counterparts. We all desire salaries that allow us to support our families and still allow us to make purchases to bene t our classroom. We all desire to feel safe at our school sites. Why is there disagreement when we all want the same things? I believe district and charter school educators should join forces to raise a stronger voice for quality public education. The students we all educate will become our doctors, lawyers and entrepreneurs. We educate the world. Let's work together to change it. Marsha Edwards is an educator who lives in the Tampa Bay-area. I knew we'd have a fight on our hands to defend the progress made by the Obama administration in reforming our health care system. I wake up every day recognizing that millions of my fellow Floridians could lose coverage and access if the current administration's efforts to undermine the health care law are successful. I admit there are problems with the Affordable Care Act. But we can't afford to start over, as some are suggesting with their health care proposals. Why would people support that and lose the health care they enjoy? With the passage of the ACA, millions of Americans could obtain coverage they never had before: 91 percent of Americans have insurance for the first time in American history. As president of the Pinellas County Young Democrats, I've seen the importance of young people staying on their parents' insurance until age 26, and the impact of the new protections for people with pre-existing conditions. We need to build on the advances we've made so far on health coverage that more than 180 million Americans rely on. Congress should be focusing on common-sense policies to cover the remaining 9 percent of Americans still worried about what will happen if they or their family member gets sick or goes to the hospital not upending our health care system through sweeping, unrealistic and unattainable legislation. With the 2018 elections approaching, we must support candidates who prioritize pragmatic, patient-centered health care policies. We need leadership in Washington willing to work hard to preserve the current health coverage that millions enjoy and x what isn't working to make health care accessible for all Americans. Johnny Boykins is president of the Pinellas County Young Democrats. Only 20 weeks remain until Election Day on Nov. 6. Some experts believe it may be known hereafter as one of the most important dates in American history. Regardless of our political af liation or persuasion, here are some questions we may want to ask ourselves in the days that remain: Am I registered to vote? If not, why not? Do I know where to register? If someone at that of ce tries to prevent me from registering, do I know the right questions to ask? Do I know the phone number or email address of local news media to contact, in case I suspect I've been unfairly treated by election of cials? Do I know the names, phone numbers and political histories of the candidates? What are the issues they favor or oppose? Are the candidates responsive to my inquiries? Do I engage my family, friends and neighbors in political discussions? Do I seek out persons who are more politically savvy than I am? Once I choose a candidate I wish to support, am I willing to send him/her a check for $1,000? $100? $5? Am I likely to post a candidate's placard on my lawn or car bumper? If not, why not? On Election Day, am I prepared to drive voters (of any persuasion) to the polls? Will I volunteer to work at election centers? These and other questions may be worthy of our examination between now and Nov. 6. If you do not have the time or energy to focus on all the candidates, you may be inclined to concentrate on persons running for Congress. This year's midterm elections could very well determine or predict the survival of our political system. The Republican Party or what's left of it has had control of both houses of Congress for almost two years. The opportunity for the GOP to pass important measures has been there, but few of them have made it into law. Reasons for this have varied. Democratic opposition has been strong enough to block many ideas set forth by Republicans, and the result has been endless squabbling. This may end if Democrats fail to gain control of at least the House in November. Although predictions of a Democratic resurgence are being made across the land, it will be unwise to bet your grocery money on that actually happening. Despite the controversies that President Trump uncorks several times each month, his ratings have stayed high enough to keep many of his followers from drifting away. Once convinced that Trump is a combination of God and Muhammed Ali, most of his supporters don't much care what the president does, or does not do. This could change, however, because of Trump's clumsy, insensitive handling of the recent immigration cluster- ub in Texas and at other entry points, where hundreds of refugee children were separated from their parents. The pictures of those weeping, terri ed kids could have a major impact on the midterm election results. As I watch that heartbreaking footage, my thoughts go back to the 1964 presidential election. Lyndon Johnson's challenger was Sen. Barry Goldwater, who opposed a ban on nuclear testing. LBJ's campaign managers decided to portray Goldwater as a villain and warmonger. Not long before election day, LBJ unveiled an advertisement that has become a classic of effective political skullduggery. The ad simply showed two scenes. A little girl was in a garden, counting the petals of a daisy she was holding. Suddenly, a nuclear countdown could be heard, followed by a blinding explosion. A mushroom cloud rose into the heavens. Then came the voice of LBJ, warning that America had only two choices: Ban nuclear testing or die. That ad alone garnered LBJ more votes than anyone could have predicted. I imagine that in remaining weeks Democratic candidates throughout our country will inundate viewers and voters with pictures of bewildered refugee children taken from their parents by the action, or inaction, of Donald Trump and his lily-livered Congressional unkies. Millions of voters will remember those weeping children next Nov. 6. A large percentage of those voters may be former Trump fans, haunted by an image that has invaded their minds: a blond, orid-faced madman using a wrecking ball to destroy a shining city on a hill.

Outdoors 11A Leader, June 28, 2018Spawning turns fish into easier targetsThis week's approaching full moon is a signi cant one. Tarpon, snook and mangrove snapper are grouping up as they form their spawning aggregations, a ritual that takes place a day or two before the full moon and a day or two after. What does this mean for you the angler? Fish become easier targets once these aggregations are located. Big numbers of fish will cause them all to be more competitive for food at certain stages of the tide. Tarpon prefer to group up in deep water passes like Egmont and Boca Grande; as the full moon approaches they will respond to the outgoing tide crab ush that occurs on these strong tides, providing some excellent fishing. Once the moon is full many of the sh will move offshore to spawn, upon the sh's return a few days later good fishing should return as the fish will most likely be hungry after their spawn. Snook fishing has been very good lately and should only get better as the water continues to clean up after last week's west winds. Jetties and bridge pilings are holding schools of big snook right now. Fishing with live grunts up along the rocks or along the fenders is your best bet ,although Mylar-style jigs will catch plenty of sh as well especially at night. Mangrove snapper and summer full moons are synonymous for some excellent fishing. Snapper form huge groups around the full moon, and this is often the time to catch the bigger sh. The Skyway shing piers are the best spot for land-based anglers to target these tasty bait stealers. The best shing occurs at night, but that's not to say that the sh won't feed during the day. However, their good vision and overall stubbornness to refuse any offering that doesn't look natural often gets thrown to the wayside at night when the sh can get into a feeding frenzy. The trick is to use small hooks, light leaders and only enough weight to carry your bait down in the strong current. Most often the sh want the bait drifting naturally with the tide so diligently reeling up and re-casting your bait up-current will pay off better than just letting your bait sit on the bottom. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Participating businesses are doing their part by abstaining from giving plastic straws out unless requested by a customer. Neighborhood Newsletter Publisher and civic activist Bob Griffin said all 25 restaurants and bars in IRB were contacted. Nearly all of them have agreed to the request. Those businesses are doing their part by abstaining from giving plastic straws out unless requested by a customer. "We (Bob and Becky Griffin) have been involved in the Get Rid of Straws movement for over a year now. With our newsletters in St Petersburg and Clearwater, we have helped to promote the message to restaurants and to the public about the problem with plastics in restaurants, bars and the environment. In those cities, the city government is pushing the project with their web sites, public works and marketing departments," Grif n said. In Indian Rocks Beach, they have contacted all 25 restaurants and bars. So far over 70 percent have agreed to take part in the campaign. They hope to have 100 percent by Sunday, July 1, he said. "We noticed that the city of Indian Rocks was not taking any action on this issue (as had St Petersburg, Clearwater, and other Pinellas cities) so we decided to push the message with our community Neighborhood Newsletters and Best Beach Restaurants Magazine," he said. Griffin also mailed similar letters to more than 300 restaurants and bars on the Pinellas Beaches and hope to have an impact far beyond IRB. "We may not convert everyone or every business, but if we can change 50 percent of the restaurants, that is saying something," Grif n said. The program is similar to one in Clearwater, spurred by the city's Environmental Advisory Board. Jared Leone, chairman of the board, discussed the issue during the council's May 17 meeting. "This local trend is a part of a national and international pattern to reduce use of an estimated 500 million plastic straws and millions more plastic bags that are used and discarded daily," Leone said. "Many end up in the water, sand or accidentally ingested by animals. As conscientious stewards of the environment and in an effort to ensure continued and future resident and tourist enjoyment of the beach and the rest of the city, the board hopes the council will approve this voluntary ocean friendly effort, which will help keep Clearwater bright and beautiful, from bay to beach." Grif n said he has placed more than 1,000 cards from the Florida Extension Service at the Plumlee Welcome Center on Walsingham Road for the public to hand out when they notice a restaurant is not participating.

FWC urges caution around alligatorsAlligators become more active during warm weather months, and it's not uncommon to see them throughout the state. Most interactions consist of seeing alligators at a distance. However, if you have a concern about a speci c alligator, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission urges you to call its toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). "The FWC places the highest priority on public safety," said Eric Sutton, FWC's executive director. "When someone calls our Nuisance Alligator Hotline to report an alligator they believe poses a threat, we dispatch one of our contracted nuisance alligator trappers to resolve the situation." Although alligator bite incidents resulting in serious injury are rare in Florida, the FWC recommends taking precautions when having fun in and around the water. Alligators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found anywhere there is standing water. Reduce the chances of con icts with alligators by swimming only in designated swimming areas during daylight hours. Also keep pets on a leash and away from the water. Because alligators control their body temperature by basking in the sun, they may be easily observed. However, the FWC urges people to keep their distance if they see one. And never feed alligators because it is dangerous and illegal. The FWC also works to keep Floridians and visitors informed, including providing advice about living with alligators.

PETE BEACH For the 14th year, TradeWinds Island Resorts will construct its "Terry Cloth Tribute" to our Armed Forces and the Fourth of July holiday with hundreds of beach towels on the beach on Wednesday, July 4. The resort will use 975 colored towels to create a giant 13-star ag mosaic the original Betsy Ross ag along the beachfront behind the resort. This tribute was the brainchild of retired TradeWinds employee, Bob McManaway, the former director of plant operations and veteran of the Armed Forces, who envisioned dyeing the hotel's beach towels red and blue, which combined with white towels, create the memorable display. Guests can assist in placing the towels to form a mosaic of the original ag, while 13 of TradeWinds' younger guests will pose as the stars on the ag, representing the original 13 colonies. Construction of the ag will begin at 9 a.m. A photo opportunity with the TradeWinds' younger guests is at 10 a.m. Once created, the ag will stay on the beach until 1 p.m., weather permitting.Plans set for IRB Clean Beach programINDIAN ROCKS BEACH Plans are set for the IRB 4th of July Clean Beach Initiative.

12A Community Leader, June 28, 2018 By TOM GERMONDTampa Bay NewspapersBELLEAIR A series of town commission actions June 19 cleared the way for the Pelican Golf Club to proceed with expansion plans. As at their meeting June 7 when commissioners gave preliminary approval to additional development on the property, there were no objections from the public. The proposal includes about 1.13 acres of existing residential property adjacent to the golf course along Althea Road and Golf View Drive, which was recently acquired by the developer. To connect the parcels to the existing golf course, developers asked that the commission vacate that portion of the right of way abutting the parcels. The proposed expansion is to allow for the addition of enhanced practice greens, development of a 2,754-square-foot Golf Learning Center and the addition of two 3,800-square-foot cottages for overnight accommodations for members of the club. Commissioners gave final approval to two ordinances to accommodate the golf club's request. The commission also approved two variance requests. One is to allow the applicants to build a 3,300-square-foot metal maintenance facility at the northeast corner of the golf course that is expected to be consistent with the size and layout of other highly regarded maintenance operations in the industry. The other will allow the applicants to create a fence and wall combination on the perimeter of the golf club's new parcel. On the south side of the parcel, the fence would be built just on the golf course side of the sidewalk. A hedge and trees will be placed along the golf course side of the fence to screen the views of the fence and create privacy for the adjacent homeowners. The structure on Indian Rocks Road would be a combination of solid and brick and wrought iron while the fence material a dark green manufactured product designed to visually blend in with the landscaping. A cul-de-sac is proposed by the developers for Golf View Drive as a part of the request to vacate right of way, and it is expected to solve some traffic concerns. Recently, Golf View Drive has been used by motorists seeking to avoid the stop light at the intersection of Indian Rocks Road and Mellenbacher Road or a short cut to Indian Rocks Road. Mayor Gary Katica complimented the golf club on their plans for the cul-de-sac, saying he's gotten numerous complaints about motorists speeding on Golf View Drive. "So I can't tell you how nice it will be to have a cul-de-sac and possibly lowering the speed limit for the rest of the area," Katica said. Tom Nash, a representative of the golf club, said the applicants have received a lot of feedback from people who live on the street, including a resident to spoke on June 7 in favor of the road plan. "She's going to be right there on the cul-de-sac and is very excited about the way it's all turned out," Nash said. Commissioner Tom Shelly called the Pelican Golf Course project a great public-private partnership. "It's really good for all of us," he said. The Doyle family of Belleair bought the property from the town for $3.8 million; the deal closed on June 1, 2017. Company officials hope the golf course to be in use beginning in January.In other news Commissioner Tom Kurey said he and Town Manager J.P. Murphy had a good discussion with the consultant for the town's infrastructure board. Among the topics discussed, Kurey said they talked about being creative regarding funding sources, such as for Indian Rocks Road. Proposed road improvements are estimated at $7 million. He noted that 80 to 90 percent of the traf c on Indian Rocks Road is caused by nonresidents. "Why should the town be paying this? Why shouldn't it be a county thing or a state thing or somebody else paying this other than the town of Belleair. We should be getting a heck of a lot of help or somebody else should be paying for it." Commissioner Karla Rettstatt said she had a breakfast meeting with a group of mayors and Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg. Several beach communities contend the Legislature is infringing on their home-rule powers over short-term rentals. "It hasn't gone away, and it doesn't look like it's going away," Rettstatt said. She hopes the Florida League of Cities is working on a proposal. "Our rules may not be grandfathered in, and that will be a real shame," she said. Commissioner Tom Shelley said Brandes said legislators wouldn't move forward unless the city's regulations are grandfathered in until a long-term solution is devised. "That didn't make me feel very comfortable," Rettstatt said. "I'll be honest with you." The commission's next regularly scheduled meeting, Tuesday, July 3, was canceled.Town OKs golf club expansion plans BELLEAIR Photo courtesy of SHANE ROBICHAUDShown is an artist's rendering of the new clubhouse for the Pelican Golf Club.

It stands to reason, kids will love the new installment in the Jurassic Park lm series, Â“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.Â” Why wouldnÂ’t they love it? It has big, scary dinosaurs tromping through tropical jungles. It has a volcano hurling chunks of rock and magma through the air. It has lava ows surging across Isla Nublar Â– the ctional Central American island where John Hammond, the CEO of InGen, originally established his park back in 1993Â’s Â“Jurassic Park,Â” the rst lm in the franchise. It also has scientists being duped by a host of greedy villains who want to capture the dinosaurs for nefarious reasons. Sound familiar? While Â“Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomÂ” isnÂ’t a failure, it doesnÂ’t really cover any new ground. It ticks all the right boxes: thrilling action sequences, check; supercharged CGI dinosaur stampede, check; apex predators gobbling up unnamed extras as if they were part of a Lunchables box, check. Creepy bio-engineered species whose DNA was apparently spliced with a serial killer, check. Logic and plausibility, however, are missing links in this installment. J.A. Bayona directs from a script written by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. I donÂ’t think Michael Crichton would nd their postscript to his creation particularly satisfying. The story is riddled with plot holes large enough to accommodate a herd of apatosauruses. Pivotal details simply donÂ’t hold up when scrutinized. The very premise of the movie Â– the diabolical plan hatched by the lmÂ’s primary antagonist Â– is utterly unbelievable and logistically impossible. To summarize Â– and without revealing any spoilers Â– three years have gone by since the incident depicted in 2015Â’s Â“Jurassic World.Â” The park is closed, its parent company has paid out millions of dollars in lawsuits and a previously dormant volcano is about to wipe out all the surviving dinosaurs on Isla Nublar. The world is debating whether the dinosaurs should be saved or left to their doom. Claire Dearing, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, is among those ghting to save them. She convinces a less-enthusiastic Owen Grady, portrayed by Chris Pratt, to take part in a privately funded expedition to extract a handful of dinosaurs. As usual, the well-meaning dinosaur-huggers realize too late that those seemingly generous benefactors bankrolling and orchestrating the extraction might have a hidden agenda. Whoops. ItÂ’s the same theme that has been repeated ad nauseam throughout the lm series: scienti c breakthroughs, in the wrong hands, can be disastrous. While it may be a theme worth repeating, what is troublesome is that in this franchise, the same people have to learn the lesson over and over again. The lmmakers are beating a dead sauropod. The lmÂ’s lack of originality also extends to the selection of dinosaurs on display. In the previous lm, HowardÂ’s character makes an interesting point when she tells a group of investors that people are tired of seeing the same old dinosaurs. She tells them people want something new, something scarier, something with lots of sharp teeth. In Â“Jurassic World,Â” that turned out to be Indominus rex, a genetically engineered dinosaur. Â“Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomÂ” builds on that, but only marginally. The dinosaurs still evoke a sense of wonder and terror, but nothing quite compares to the original lm, Â“Jurassic Park.Â” Â“Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomÂ” is still wildly entertaining, as long as you donÂ’t think about it too much. ItÂ’s scary and exhilarating and elevated by ne performances from Howard and Pratt, as well as Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Isabella Sermon and Rafe Spall. Toby Jones, who plays auctioneer Gunnar Eversol, should have been given more to do. Likewise, B.D. Wong, reprising his role as Dr. Henry Wu, doesnÂ’t get enough screen time. Jeff Goldblum even makes an appearance, playing Dr. Ian Malcolm Â– a character that dates back to the original lm. Sadly, GoldblumÂ’s contribution is little more than a cameo. Despite its lack of originality, the lm is fun, though familiar. It will likely serve as a stepping stone to yet another installment. Still, there is a limit to how often audiences will settle for an inferior clone. The franchise may be headed toward its own extinction level event.
