It appears the investment was for naught, as Publix announced June 28 that it has entered into an agreement to purchase Safeway's only three Florida stores, which includes the one at Largo Mall. The others are in Altamonte Springs and Oakland Park. "Publix continues to look for ways to expand within our operating area to better serve our customers," Publix CEO and President Todd Jones said in a press release. "We are excited for this opportunity to acquire existing stores within our home state." The store at 10500 Ulmerton Road, which is just down the road from another Publix at 10411 Ulmerton Road, will continue operating as a Safeway until early September, but its pharmacy will close before then. Posters will be displayed within the pharmacy to advise Publix acquires Safeway storesLargo Mall grocer will close in September, reopen as Publix in fourth quarter of year By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersSupervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced June 22 that 35 candidates had completed the requirements necessary to qualify for county office. Qualifying period began June 18 and ended at noon June 22. Seven of the 35 quali ed by collecting petition signatures and the others paid a qualifying fee. Some candidates were unopposed and will not compete in the primary or general election. In the race for County Commissioner District 2, which is an at-large position, incumbent Patricia "Pat" Gerard, a Democrat, was unopposed. For the singlemember District 4 seat, incumbent Dave Eggers, a Republican, also was unopposed. Gerard and Eggers were rst elected to the Commission in November 2014 and will now serve a second term. Gerard qualified by paying the fee. Eggers quali ed by petition. Four qualified to fill long-term By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER For months now, local officials have been talking about the uncertainty of future budgets if voters approve an additional homestead exemption. In 2017, the State Legislature voted to place Amendment 1 on the ballot. According to County staff, the additional exemption would not really effect state government since it is funded primarily by sales tax; however, county and municipal governments would take a big budget hit, if voters say yes, as they are funded primarily by property tax.Gerard and Eggers will return to their posts County plans education campaign on amendments No candidates challenged 2 county commissioners; 4 to vie for Morroni’s seat Photo by LOGAN MOSBYPublix announced June 28 that it has entered into an agreement to purchase Safeway’s only three Florida stores, which includes the one at Largo Mall.

If success is the best revenge, then Largo geek bar has silenced doubters after capturing national acclaim in its rst year Photos by CHRIS GEORGEWaypoint 6 Tavern & Geekery’s owners Stephanie and Kevin Daniels, below, have plenty to celebrate this month. The couple are preparing for the rst anniversary party of Tampa Bay’s rst geek bar, which was recently selected by the Syfy network’s website, Syfy Wire, as the fth-best geek bar in the U.S. or Canada. Revenge of the NERDS By CHRIS GEORGE  Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO A bout 10 days after Waypoint 6 Tavern & Geekery opened, a patron of the bar that had been there before, O'Houston's Irish Tavern, walked in, looked around and ordered a beer. When he nished, he paid and told co-owner Kevin Daniels his bar would be shut down in three months and walked out. "Whoever that guy is, come July 21 is one year, and we won," Daniels said. Tampa Bay's rst geek bar, which caters to avid gamers, cosplayers, fans and nerds, didn't just win by surviving the always dif cult rst year. As it prepares for its rst anniversary party later this month, it has plenty more to celebrate, including recently being selected by the Syfy network's website, Syfy Wire, as the fth-best geek bar in the U.S. or Canada. "The only way it could get better is if George Lucas walked in here and gave us the thumbs-up and went nice job," said Daniels, a Star Wars superfan “ “ The only way it could get better is if George Lucas walked in here and gave us the thumbs-up and went nice job.”– Kevin Daniels, co-owner of Waypoint 6 Tavern & Geekery, referring to being selected as the fth-best geek bar in the U.S. or Canada by the Syfy network’s website, Syfy Wire See NERDS, page 4A ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ is newest Marvel offeringIn the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. … Page 1B.

customers once their prescriptions have transferred to the Publix pharmacy. According to a press release, Safeway employees will be encouraged to pursue job opportunities at Publix and will be provided with details on how to apply for employment. A grand opening date is expected to be announced within the fourth quarter of this year, according to Publix spokesman Brian West. It took about six months of work and millions of dollars to revamp what was Tampa Bay's last Albertsons into the Safeway store, which had its grand opening in June 2016. The grocer hoped the store's fresh look, which included a Starbucks, on-site juice station, pizza bar and sushi bar, and new services such as grocery delivery, would help it compete with the Lakeland-based Publix, which has dominated the industry in Florida. Publix, the largest employeeowned grocery chain in the U.S., employs more than 190,000 people at its 1,187 store locations, 787 of which are in Florida. In 2017, its retail sales reached $34.6 billion and show no signs of slowing, as the grocer's sales in the first quarter of 2018 were $9.3 billion, a 6.8 percent increase from last year's $8.7 billion.Largo 3A Leader, July 5, 2018Editor’s Note: This is part of a series of columns provided by the city of Largo that will run quarterly and highlight the city’s brand, mission, vision and values.By BRENDA CLARKFor many, the announcement of Florida's tax-free weekend for hurricane supplies was enough to jumpstart conversations at home and in the workplace about what type of weather we might see this year. While it's impossible to know what the coming months hold, we do know that it's time to plan. Our neighbors and communities are one bright spot as we think about the devastation that Irma brought us just months ago. Neighbors pulled together and talked with each other, checked on houses for friends who were away, invited others to stay with them and helped in picking up downed fences and branches. We have long known that this type of connection at the neighborhood level is the foundation for good mental health, increased safety and overall community pride. Many felt that last September. As storms shifted away and the last of the debris was removed, neighbors returned to keeping to themselves and checking in less with their community. Let's circle back to that. At least a little bit. Although the city can't create social ties, active steps in ramping up community outreach to more efficiently serve those here in Largo have been taken. Departments performing work in the community are working together in creating ways to open up communication lines with local neighborhoods. Projects related to enhancing community ties include the creation of a Neighborhood Grant program, Speakers Bureau, Contact Collector and a neighborhood naming project. All efforts tie us back to the city's vision of being the community of choice in Tampa Bay.Neighborhood grant programThe program provides matching grants to neighborhood groups interested in building strong relationships around communitydriven beautification projects. All projects must result in an enhancement to the neighborhood's identity, enlist community participation, foster a sense of community pride, be highly visible to the general public and be a project that can be permitted by City regulations.Speakers BureauThis project pulled together existing city resources and placed them all together for convenience. Community members can select a topic they are interested in learning about and have a speaker come out to talk to their neighborhood, civic group or business. Topics include: ALICE-Active Shooter Training, Economic Development and what's next for Largo, Fire Safety and Education, General Community which includes information on neighborhoods, city services, our neighborhood grant program and ways to participate in city government, Police and Community Watch, Police Senior Services, Recreation, Park & Arts and membership opportunities, Sustainability and Recycling and Tree Care among others.That Map!The city of Largo's first-ever crowdsourced neighborhood map, called That Map!, is an interactive exploration of the places we call home. That Map! enables area residents to literally put their communities on the map and contribute to their collective neighborhood identity.Contact collectorA key goal of our outreach projects is to create stronger communication with local neighborhoods. Neighborhood leaders, community associations, and civic groups are invited to update their information with the city. Up-to-date contacts will allow speedier access to projects impacting the neighborhood and opportunities to provide immediate feedback. These efforts are just a small fraction of how the city works, often behind the scenes, to improve the day-to-day life of community members. No matter what Largo may weather this season, we challenge the community to take action and connect with each other and with us, even before it's absolutely necessary. All projects can be accessed at Brenda Clark is the community outreach coordinator for the city of Largo.The importance of connection in your communityVolunteer fair slated for July 7 at libraryLARGO The city of Largo will hold a volunteer fair Saturday, July 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Largo Public Library.

When Stephanie found out about the list via Twitter in June, she was so excited she couldn't even get the words out to tell Kevin, so she just pulled the article up online for him. "I mean we're in the list with places in New York, California, Canada, Las Vegas and then there's Largo, Florida," Kevin said. This isn't the first time, Waypoint 6 has received national attention online. About a month after opening, when football season was ramping up, Stephanie placed a sign on the door in an effort to inform new customers of what they were walking into. It read in part: "Sports Fans. Please be advised this is not a sports bar! Waypoint 6 Tavern & Geekery was designed by geeks for geeks to enjoy all of their geeky delights. We do not have a cable sports package. We will not be showing sports unless it is BattleBots, drone racing or Quidditch. There are over eightyseven sports bars in this area to choose from but only one geekery." It didn't take long for a picture of the sign to go viral and for the nerd community to rejoice. "Last time we looked, it had like 700,000 views," Stephanie said. "We were getting messages from people in like New Zealand, Australia, Germany asking when are you going to open one here?" "The guy from Australia was like, I'm digging a hole from Brisbane right now to you,'" Kevin added. Local customers are also starting to take notice, if only by reading the sign. "We had one guy who said, I drove by and saw your sign. It looked weird. I pulled in. I looked at the sign and it said Geekery. It can't be. Is this place all about stuff for nerds and geeks?' We were like, yes it is," Kevin said. "He was like, I'm home.'" Lifelong geeks While Internet fame happened upon them quickly, the road to opening Waypoint 6 was much longer in the making for Kevin and Stephanie, who say they were proud geeks long before it became trendy. "From Day 1, I grew up watching Star Trek' with my dad, or Creature Feature on Channel 44 every Saturday," said Kevin, whose family moved to the area at a young age. Not to be outdone, Stephanie, who was raised in Largo and went to Ridgecrest Elementary and Seminole High School, said she remembers faking an illness just so she could stay home and nish the "Lord of the Rings." The self-proclaimed theater nerds even met at the Bay Area Renaissance Festival when it was in Largo. Kevin was directing the human chess match and Stephanie was part of the street cast. Kevin continues to work at festivals and conventions, performing a stage combat comedy show. His skill isn't limited to swords, though. For 10 years, Kevin served as a Kenneth City police of cer. He had hoped to keep his job and still run the tavern, but he learned a state statute makes it a misdemeanor for a sworn law enforcement officer to own an establishment that sells liquor. So, now he teaches firearms and vehicle operations at the police academy. "I still get to do all the fun stuff, all the driving and shooting and not all the paperwork," he said. The tavern’s about what? Before law enforcement, he was a commercial fisherman with his family, who had owned a seafood restaurant on Seminole Boulevard. About two years ago, his family was looking for a new venture when Kevin suggested giving the food and beverage business another shot but with a twist. "We pitched them this idea, and it was met with some skeptic looks," he said. Family members weren't the only ones who needed convincing. When hunting for locations, the couple had to nd a simple way of explaining the business to real estate agents. "We eventually had to start explaining it like someplace the guys from the Big Bang Theory' would go hangout," Stephanie said. "Or like a Beef O Brady's for nerds. You can bring kids. There's no sports. Some people are going to be drinking, some people aren't." A year's worth of hunting paid off when they came across the former Irish pub that already had the look and feel they were hoping for. All they had to do was change some of the decor by adding some nerdy touches, such as paintings, comic books and memorabilia. "Eighty percent of everything on the walls is ours from our house, and then the rest of it is from artists and people who have donated," Kevin said. The tavern also features a full menu of comfort food and drinks that re ects genres from Star Trek to Harry Potter. Some of the items include Dragon Ball Cheeze (pimento cheese fritters), Alien Eggs (jalapeno poppers) and Mario's fried mushrooms, while the kids' menu is under the heading you guessed it "The Next Generation." Waypoint also hosts several events, such as watch parties for shows like "The Walking Dead," trivia nights or most recently its Summerween, which gave the Danielses an excuse to celebrate their favorite holiday, Halloween, twice. Something for everybody While the point of Waypoint might be fun and games, the couple said the most satisfying part of the rst year has been how the tavern brings different kinds of people together. Whether it's the customer who comes in with a tie and briefcase to play Magic the Gathering or a woman who learns about live-action role playing from other patrons so she can better understand her grandson, the Danielses say the tavern is for everybody. "That's the best thing about this place," Stephanie said. "You don't have to be a fan of everything, but somewhere they (patrons) are going to nd that common ground." The tavern is also a place to gather for likeminded patrons to discuss or argue their favorite topics, such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When "Avengers: In nity War" came out, "we practically had to have support groups in here," Kevin said. "These groups like to come here because we cater to them. We're their people." With Orlando and its scores of themed restaurants and bars nearby, Stephanie said the hardest part has been living up to everybody's expectations. Thus far, it must be, because the coolest nerd bar in Pinellas County will be holding its one-year anniversary party July 21 featuring live music by the Bawdy Boys. "I'm still not 100 percent sure that we're cool," Stephanie said. "We're de nitely cool amongst nerds," Kevin responded.4A Largo Leader, July 5, 2018 Around LargoGold’s Gym hosts fundraiser for LHS footballLARGO Gold's Gym Largo, 2178 East Bay Drive, is hosting a fundraiser for the Largo High School football team and Florida English Bulldog Rescue Saturday, July 7, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The event will include a carwash, complimentary workout, 50 percent off smoothies, food, vendors and the bloodmobile will be onsite.Palms of Largo to host SummerFest for GoodLARGO SummerFest for Good will take place Saturday, July 7, noon to 5 p.m., at The Plaza at The Palms of Largo, 385 Alt.

Parents can spend quality time with their preschool-aged children County staff showed the County Commission some of the educational materials they plan to use to educate the public about the potential effect of Amendment 1 during a June 9 meeting. If approved, Amendment 1 would allow homeowners to take a third homestead exemption on their primary residence if the assessed value is greater than $100,000 up to $125,000. The exemption would apply to all tax levies except school district levies, beginning Jan. 1, 2019. The projected loss in local government funds to support essential public services, such as police, emergency medical services, re departments, libraries, parks and more is $42.5 million. The county wants the public to be aware of several important points. The rst is that in Pinellas, two in three homes would not qualify for the additional exemption. In addition, businesses and renters would not bene t. That means only one-third of the county's homeowners would save on property taxes, while two-thirds of homeowners, along with renters and businesses would pay a larger share of the total tax bill. Currently, all homeowners with an assessed value from $0-$25,000 qualify for the rst homestead exemption on their primary residence. The second homestead exemption applies to assessed values between $50,000 and $75,000. The proposed third exemption would apply only to assessed home values between $100,000 and $125,000. Staff says that the rst and second homestead exemption applies to most primary residences in Pinellas, but that's not the case for the proposed third exemption. Homes with an assessed value of $99,000 or less would receive no bene t. Homes with an assess value of $100,000 to $124,999 would receive a partial bene t. Only homes with an assessed value of more than $125,000 would get the full bene t. In Pinellas, 70 percent of homeowners would not qualify for the extra exemption. Seven percent would qualify for a partial exemption and 23 percent would qualify for a full exemption, according to information from the Pinellas County Property Appraiser. To find out if you qualify for a third homestead exemption, visit www.3hxestimator. org or, to use a statewide tool developed by the Pinellas County Property Appraiser's of ce. Staff reminds voters that the assessed value of a home is typically less than the just market value and assessed values are constrained by the Save-Our-Homes cap on property taxes. To pass, Amendment 1 must receive support by 60 percent of voters. A second amendment on the ballot Amendment 2 applies to owners of second homes, businesses and rental properties. Currently, a 10 percent cap limits the annual property tax increases for these non-homestead properties. That cap expires Jan. 1, 2019. However, if voters approve Amendment 2, the cap would become permanent and continue to limit how much property tax goes up annually on non-homestead properties. If voters say no, the cap would expire and non-homestead properties would be subject to market values for property tax purposes, which could result in higher taxes. If Amendment 2 doesn't pass, local governments could see revenue increases of an estimated $32.5 million, which brings in more money to pay for services. However, County commissioners are concerned that higher taxes on rental property could deplete the supply of affordable housing in the county. Businesses also could be affected. Besides Amendments 1 and 2, voters will see 11 other initiatives on the Nov. 6 ballot. For more information, visit orida. com/initiatives. Be sure to check the "Made Ballot" box on the top of the form before you run the query. County staff has launched a webpage to help educate voters, visit amendment1. Staff will be out in the community making presentation starting in early fall. Graphic courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTYIf voters approve Amendment 1 in November, 70 percent of homeowners in Pinellas would not qualify for the extra exemption. Seven percent would qualify for a partial exemption and 23 percent would qualify for a full exemption, according to information from the Pinellas County Property Appraiser.

6A County Leader, July 5, 2018 Police BeatPSTA bus crashes after driver has medical issueTREASURE ISLAND Treasure Island police say the driver of a PSTA bus may have suffered a medical episode about 10:36 a.m. June 27 while traveling west on 107th Avenue at First Street East in Treasure Island. Police say the bus left the westbound lanes and continued traveling west in the eastbound lanes. It then jumped the southside sidewalk, traveled approximately 120 feet on the sidewalk before crossing back over the eastbound lanes into the westbound lanes where it hit a concrete pole on the sidewalk on the north side of 107th Avenue. The bus struck the concrete pole with the right front of the bus shearing the pole from its base. The bus continued to travel westbound on 107th Avenue before striking a median curb and coming to a rest partially onto Gulf Boulevard. Prior to the PSTA bus crashing, a concerned motorist observed the bus traveling erratically but slowly on Treasure Island Causeway heading westbound for approximately one mile as it merged onto 107th Avenue, according to a press release from Treasure Island police. The motorist then saw the bus jump the northside curb at 107th Avenue and First Street East. The bus came to a stop and the only passenger exited. Police say the concerned citizen exited his vehicle and walked over to the bus door and attempted to talk to the driver. The citizen recognized that the driver might be suffering from a medical emergency and saw the driver begin to drive away. The citizen jumped on the bus and the driver continued to accelerate continuing west in the eastbound lanes of 107th Avenue. The driver did not respond to directions by the citizen and the citizen attempted to take control of the steering but could not access the brakes. The citizen was able to steer the bus off the sidewalk and into the westbound lanes before striking the concrete pole. Police say that responding of cers also found the bus driver to be awake but unresponsive to conversation. The unidenti ed bus driver was transported to a hospital. Ex-St. Pete Beach mayor found dead in homeST. PETE BEACH Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives are investigating the death of a former St. Pete Beach mayor who was found dead in his home June 26. Deputies responded to the home of Stephen Douglas McFarlin, 61, about 3:30 p.m. According to detectives with the Robbery/Homicide Unit, family members went to the former mayor's home on Tuesday because they were concerned after not hearing from him for some time. They found McFarlin dead inside his home on Gulf Boulevard. They then called deputies who responded to the home and con rmed that McFarlin was dead. Detectives say it appears that McFarlin died of a self-in icted injury and that his death does not appear suspicious. McFarlin served as St. Pete Beach mayor from 2011-2014.Largo man injured in single-vehicle crashCLEARWATER Clearwater Police and Clearwater Fire & Rescue responded to a single-vehicle crash with serious injuries about 2:51 a.m. June 26 at Court Street and Hillcrest Avenue. According to police, William Fralin, 48, of Largo was driving a 2002 Toyota Camry westbound on Court Street when the vehicle left the road, struck a couple street signs and then slammed into a large pole holding traf c signals. Police say debris from the car and the traf c signals was strewn over a large area and onto the campus of St. Cecelia Catholic School, 1350 Court St. Fralin was transported to Bayfront Health in St. Petersburg and was reportedly in critical condition. Court Street and Hillcrest Avenue were closed for about three hours Tuesday morning and a small portion of Hillcrest Avenue was still closed as of 10:40 a.m. as city crews worked to repair the traf c signals at the intersection. Police say damage estimates to city property is about $75,000. Speeding and alcohol are thought to be factors in the crash.Detectives investigate drowning of 2-month-oldST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives are investigating the drowning of a 2-month-old girl found submerged in the families bathtub about 2:45 p.m. June 24 at a home in unincorporated St. Petersburg. Detectives say the drowning appears to be accidental. According to detectives, the mother of the baby Sureka Sivalingam, 32, prepared a bath for 2-month-old Kavina Navanetharaj. Sureka placed a transportable infant bathtub inside the residential bathtub and lled the infant bathtub with water. Detectives say Sureka placed Kavina into the infant bathtub and Sureka climbed into the residential tub that was void of water. After almost an hour, a family member went into the bathroom to check on Sureka and found her unresponsive inside the residential bathtub. Kavina was found unresponsive and submerged in the infant bathtub. A family member pulled Kavina from the water and called 911. The family member performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation until Lealman Fire Rescue personnel arrived on scene. Paramedics took over CPR. Kavina and Sureka were both transported by ambulance to St. Petersburg General Hospital. Kavina was pronounced dead at the hospital at about 5:11 p.m. Sureka was treated and released. Detectives say Sureka appears to have suffered a medical episode that caused her to lose consciousness while bathing Kavina. Kavina's death appears to be accidental in nature.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Photo courtesy of TREASURE ISLAND POLICEA PSTA bus sustained damage June 27 after the driver lost control during what police believe was a medical episode while traveling westbound on 107th Avenue at First Street East in Treasure Island. By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commission joined the rest of the nation in declaring June 24-30 as Mosquito Control Awareness Week during a June 19 meeting. Fight the Bite was the theme of the American Mosquito Control Association's education campaign, which is observed annually the week of June 26. The purpose of the week is to educate the public about mosquitoes and the service provided by mosquito control workers. Several of the County's Mosquito Control employees attended the June 19 meeting. One message that was shared was the importance of getting rid of breeding areas. The best way to do that is to "tip and toss" to remove sources of standing water around your property. It only takes 1/4inch of water to breed mosquitoes. American Mosquito Control Association advises the public to "make your yard a mosquito-free zone." Ways to do that include: Disposing of any tires. Tires can breed thousands of mosquitoes. Drilling holes in the bottom of recycling containers. Clearing roof gutters of debris. Cleaning pet water dishes regularly. Checking and emptying children's toys. Repairing leaky outdoor faucets. Changing the water in bird baths at least once a week. In a press release, Joseph Conlon, AMCA technical adviser, said, "Encouraging your neighbors to also eliminate sources on their own property is critical to a community-wide control program. Mosquitoes require water to complete their life cycle. If their water source is eliminated, so are their offspring." County Mosquito Control workers commented that many of the calls they respond to about mosquito problems are to homes or businesses that have standing water and are contributing to their mosquito problem by providing breeding areas. "Summer is a crucial time to protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquitoes. Mosquito surveillance and control happens year-round in Florida, but the hotter, wetter months produce ideal conditions for diseasespreading mosquitoes, so be sure to lessen your risk of being bitten and eliminate potential breeding sites," said Wayne Gale, president of the Florida Mosquito Control Association said in a press release from the State Department of Health. County and state of cials as well as the American Mosquito Control Association agree that mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance. Their bites can spread diseases such as Zika and West Nile Virus. "We already have the mosquitoes. We are continually importing the diseases they carry," said Joseph Conlon, AMCA technical adviser. "We must be prepared to prevent their spread throughout our public health landscape and this requires safe, effective, sustained mosquito control and awareness in the community." AMCA also says that mosquitoborne diseases do not only affect humans they also kill countless birds, reptiles, animals and endangered species each year. "Awareness of these parasites including canine heartworm, Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Western Equine Encephalitis is another important component of mosquito control the general public must embrace," the AMCA says. Pinellas County's Mosquito Control Department works yearround to create an environment as free of mosquitoes as possible for the comfort and well-being of the public, according to information found at resident/mosquito_control.htm. They apply larvicide to known breeding grounds and participate in the state's sentinel chickens program to monitor the area for mosquito-borne diseases. And they respond to the public's calls for help, usually within 24 hours. Regardless of how hard Mosquito Control works or how vigilant the public is about removing standing water, the rainy season brings an influx of mosquitoes. So, it is important that the public use protection. When outside, people are advised to apply mosquito repellent on exposed skin. The Center for Disease Control recommends products with DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Read and follow label directions with all repellents. In addition, wear long sleeves, long pants, and light-colored, loosefitting clothing. Mosquitoes are attracted by dark colors. "While there is currently no active, ongoing transmission of Zika in Florida, residents and travelers should always take precautions to protect against mosquito bites," said State Surgeon General and Secretary Dr. Celeste Philip. "Zika is one of several mosquito-borne illnesses that occur in Florida, so be sure to drain water from any containers around your home, cover your skin with clothing and mosquito repellent and cover doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your home or business."

Outdoors 7A Leader, July 5, 2018Rain should make fish a little less wary, more eager to feedWith the onset of our rainy season it's now truly starting to feel like summer shing out there. The welcomed rain will help to change our water clarity from gin to a slightly off-colored green, making sh a little less wary and often more eager to feed, not to mention often lowering the water temperature a couple of degrees just after a storm. Tarpon fishing should be good again this week, as long as the beaches stay nice and calm. Many of the sh will be migrating back north through the area along all of our beaches. A large population of fish will also push their way inside of Tampa Bay. These fish become more stationary rather than migratory as they'll often nd an area with some depth and a good concentration of bait and stay there for a few weeks. Target these rolling sh with sinking plugs like the D.O.A. Bait buster. For the beach sh, anchor up along their course of travel and sh with corked live baits such as big pilchards or pin sh. Flounder fishing has improved in our area quite a bit over the past couple of years. Last fall we saw a good push of flounder inshore along the deep pothole-laden grass flats as well as many structure areas along the beaches. So far this summer looks pretty good as well; plenty of good sized flounder ranging from 14 to 20 inches can be targeted along pass jetties and near-shore reefs. A live pilchard shed on a drop-shot rig will allow you to drag your bait along the edge of the reef or jetty without snagging up. Trout are still hot throughout the Intracoastal Waterway. Grass ats around Terra Verde and the Clearwater/Dunedin areas are full of trout. Drift shing while casting soft plastic jigs amongst the many potholes will provide all the action you need. Also, there has been lots of trout along the beaches near the passes. Many times while snook shing lately along the sand shoals we've hooked into some gator-sized trout.

THE REVEREND BURNS, Thomas L. The Reverend Thomas L. Burns, SCJ, a Wilkes-Barre, PA native, died Saturday, June 23, 2018, in Pinellas Park, Florida after a lengthy illness. Born September 12, 1938, he was the second of eight children born to the late Thomas L. and Dorothy Ann Dugan Burns. Father Tom was a 1956 graduate of Saint Mary's High School, Wilkes-Barre. Father Tom spent one year studying at Dehon Seminary of the Sacred Heart in Great Barrington, MA; and went to the Sacred Heart Novitiate in Sainte Marie, IL for a special year of training for the religious vows, which he professed on September 8, 1958. After four years of college at Kilroe Seminary of the Sacred Heart in Honesdale, PA, Father Tom began his study of sacred theology at the Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology in Hales Corners, WI in 1962. On December 28, 1965, he was ordained to the holy priesthood at the Church of Saint Sebastien by the late Bishop Roman Atkielski of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. On January 2, 1966, Father Tom celebrated his rst solemn Mass in his home parish of Saint John the Evangelist in Wilkes-Barre. Father Tom's first assignment led him to Massachusetts where he was appointed to the faculty of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary at Bellefontaine, in Lenox. In 1972, he earned his Master of Arts degree in French at Immaculata College in Worcester. Father Tom then began studying for certi cation as a high school principal and supervisor at North Adams State College and was subsequently named principal of the seminary in 1969. He served in that position until 1979. Later that year, Father Tom enrolled in the Institute of Spirituality and Workshop at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, CA. After a two-year update in spirituality and postVatican II theology, he joined the faculty of Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School in Alameda, CA. In 1983, Father Tom was appointed the associate pastor of Saint Matthew's Parish in Houston, TX. He joined the Mississippi community in 1986 when he was named pastor of Queen of Peace Parish in Olive Branch. Then, in 1993, he became the pastor of Saint James Parish, Corinth, and the sacramental minister of Saint Mary's in Iuka and Saint Francis in Booneville. After serving the faithful in that capacity for sixteen years, Father Tom retired to The Priests of the Sacred Heart retirement community in Pinellas Park, FL where he most recently resided. In addition to his parents, and several nieces and nephews who died in infancy, Father Tom was preceded in death by his sisters, Dorothy Ann McLaughlin and Joan Ann Calore; brothers, Neil Burns and John Burns; and brothersin-law, Robert Calore and Frank Eick. Father Tom will be greatly missed by his brother, Joseph J. and his wife, Jo Ann Burns, WilkesBarre, PA; sisters, Carol Ann Eick, Wilkes-Barre, PA and Marie Ann and her husband, Kevin Mitchell, Harrisburg, PA; brother-in-law, William McLaughlin, Endicott, NY; sister-in-law, Geraldine Burns, Scituate, MA; many nieces and nephews, former parishioners and other family and friends. A funeral mass was celebrated in the Church of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Wilkes-Barre, Saturday, June 30, 2018. Interment was in Saint Mary's Cemetery. Memories and condolences may be shared with Father Tom's family at www., ErnaErna Rogers, 83, passed away at Riverside Memorial Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio on Monday, June 25, 2018.

8A Viewpoints Leader, July 5, 2018When I got to work today, I parked in the back, where most employees park, near our newspaper's back door. Like every other day, I ambled up to the door and tried to open it. But I couldn't. It was locked. And it will remain locked that is my new reality and the new reality of hundreds of journalists across this country. As news spread yesterday of a shooting at an Annapolis newspaper yesterday, there is no doubt in my mind that most if not all journalists, reporters, editors, photographers, salespeople all had the same deafening and terrifying thought: That could've been me. Sure, I only work for a weekly newspaper in a relatively small community (although, as someone from a Mississippi community that is in nitely smaller, trust me when I say small is a relative term indeed), but we have our share of disgruntled readers even more prevalent now in Trump's era of vitriolic hate toward the media and it's an unbearable thought to carry that one of them might turn that distaste into projectiles that pierce the very heart of who we are. And who are we? Emblematically, we are the torchbearers against the dark or as the Washington Post somewhat dramatically declared, we are those that work to prevent democracy from dying in the darkness. Practically, we are the people who make sure you know what your elected of cials are up to; the people who write about community events that matter to you; the people who make sure you know Macy's is having a 50 percent off sale for the Fourth of July. I walked around my news of ce today and took a long hard look at the people I work with on a daily basis. There's our receptionist our rst line of defense when it comes to the outside world a mother of all boys whose fashion sense and style puts those years younger than her to absolute shame. She takes your complaints with a smile and does her best to appease you. There's our publisher, one of the savviest, kindest, most hilariously neat dudes you could ever meet. His door is almost never closed and when it is, no one is afraid to knock if they need to. Then there's our classi ed's department a smart and dedicated tribe of women who keep me stocked in support, chocolate and oss, and who make sure people know about your weekend yard sale. Our business department might be small but it is mighty. The ladies there work tirelessly to make sure this company and its employees run smoothly. Our retail sales department is right up at the front of the building. These ladies hustle there's no other word for it. They make lemonade out of lemons every single week for this company. If the newsroom is the meat of a sandwich, advertising is absolutely the bread. Before I make it to the newsroom, I pass through our production department, where on any given day I'll hear conversations ranging from politics to the Walking Dead to whether or not wizards are real. These people make what you want to sell look pretty. And they do it well. And nally, I make it to the heart of this company the newsroom. I'm, of course, biased when I call it that, but for me, well, it's where my heart has always been. We're not a big newsroom and we aren't fancy and we aren't anything like you see on TV or in the movies. There are only four of us editors, one of whom I'm lucky enough to call my husband, and we cover close to a dozen communities within the pages of our respective publications. We have two proofreaders, one who is over 80 and still drives to work every day. There are less than 50 of us within the walls of this building but we do everything we can to make sure our readers are in the know each week. It really is a thankless job and but for our dedication to the communities we serve, the reward is almost never reaped monetarily. Trust me when I tell you that no one works in community journalism so they can make a lot of money. We do it because it's who we are and damn it, who we are matters. So, now you know. I hope you remember that the next time you pick up your copy of the paper. You can bet I will. Logan Mosby is editor of the Clearwater Beacon. Logan Mosby Attorney General Pam Bondi was harassed by protestors last Friday when she was at a movie theater in Tampa for a screening of the Mr. Rogers' movie "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" Video of the incident went viral. Interestingly, it was captured by a member of Organize Florida who happened to be on the scene. That group describes itself as "a community-based, nonprofit member organization of low and moderate-income people dedicated to the principles of social, racial, and economic justice and the promotion of an equal and fair Florida for all." Very good. We need more of that. What we don't need are the guerilla tactics the video showed against Bondi. They were inappropriate and juvenile. Wait a minute, Pam. Don't think I'm defending your decision to have Florida join a lawsuit that could end protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions. That's what triggered the protest, and Bondi should be ashamed to be a party to that. It is cold, heartless, cruel and an unworthy partisan example of how she puts her Republican Party ideals over what is best for all the people. And I did have to suppress a laugh when I saw her quote in the Tampa Bay Times about the incident. "We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences," Bondi told The Times. "That's what Mister Rogers is all about. We all believe in free speech, but there's a big difference there." A good way to put anti-bullying, peace, love and tolerance into practice might be to stop trying to destroy people's insurance lifeline without replacing it with something that can provide the coverage they need and can afford. It's despicable. Can you say that, Pam? Sure, you can. Actually, I doubt she could. This kind of stuff has been building since Donald Trump started his campaign for president. Progressives and Democrats, in general, despise him and the members of his administration and, by extension, people like Bondi. They believe Republican policies are designed to make the rich become richer and to screw the little guy. Often, they aren't wrong. They believe Trump is a feckless bully whose fallback position is to lie about pretty much everything. Some of the people who support him believe they have a license to intimidate, mock, berate and stomp on people who have different ideas. Democrats are fed up. The anti-Trumpies have had enough. But there is no excuse none, zero for some of the things we've seen lately. Take Democratic U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters of California, for instance. She is acting just like the person she despises. Saturday in Los Angeles, she said in a speech, "If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere." That's ignorant on so many levels that it's hard to know where to start. It's basically what Trump called for his supporters to do during the campaign. It's how he excused racists in Charlottesville for inciting violence. It's his fallback position whenever he feels the heat. His opponents aren't as good at that game as Trump has been, and right now they are too lled with fury to grasp that their best weapon isn't a rock or screaming insults, it's a ballot on Election Day. But even that won't work if the anti-Trump crowd keeps up this garbage. They shouldn't try to justify this junk with a "yeah, but " because they would be wrong. Non-aligned voters already say they can't tell the difference between the two parties, and these actions reinforce that belief. And they tend to believe that while conservatives can be hardhearted, liberals can be clueless. Democrats need to ask themselves a serious question. Florida has elected a Republican Governor in ve consecutive elections. The vast majority of top of cials in Tallahassee are Republicans. Yes, gerrymandering can explain the GOP lockjaw on the Legislature, but that doesn't explain why Dems keep losing statewide races. It's just possible that Republicans have done a better job of articulating a vision enough Floridians agree with. Hard to swallow, eh? If they want to change that narrative, it's time for leaders of the socalled "resistance" to show they can be something besides mad. Recent events aren't promising. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. I'm not a gambler by nature. I'm too much of a tightwad and worrier (What if I should lose?!), plus the fact that I've seldom had enough extra cash to risk on a horse, a football game or a poker hand. But I've always admired people who possessed gambling talent, or thought they did. Instead, I've developed my own gambling game. It costs nothing. It's always available, each time I turn on my TV set. I call it TV Poker, but it's not really poker or any other card game. It simply consists of setting the odds on commercials, actors, speech patterns, hair styles, and other components of the mish-mash that today's local and network TV consists of. Example: just before I turn on the TV to almost any channel, I bet myself that the rst thing I see will be an advertisement. I set the odds at 2 to 1. And I usually win. That's because today's TV gives us almost as many commercials as it does minutes of reality-based content. Just before a ve-minute weather program starts, I wager on how many times the weatherman (or woman) will walk back and forth in front of the display. It's usually about seven. Sometimes as many as 10. If I'm correct with my guess, I award myself 100 points. If I'm wrong, I penalize myself 50 points for each back-and-forth stroll I missed with my estimate. I've always wondered why TV meteorologists feel compelled to wander around while they speak. Don't they know they're blocking the image of the water spout moving toward Punta Gorda? Following are the odds I have set for the likelihood that the following persons will appear in today's TV commercials. (The lower the odds, the more likely the person will be shown.) A Caucasian: 2-1. A person of color: 4-1. An Hispanic person: 6-1. An Asian-American: 16-1. A clean-shaven man: 27-1. A woman who is NOT a blonde: 12-1. Any salesperson/presenter who does NOT wave his/her hands about while speaking: 30-1. Here are other persons or things you're not likely to see in today's TV programming: Any pharmaceutical advertisement that is not clearly designed to scare the daylights out of consumers. I cannot name a drug ad that does not list four times as many harmful side effects as bene ts. I'll award myself 5,000 points any time such a commercial appears. Any travel/resort ad in which every human shown is NOT smiling, laughing or having a drink. Also, any such ad in which Afro-Americans are portrayed as actual customers of the hotel, resort, cruise ship or casino. Commercials that have been shown for less than a year. Why can't sponsors come up with a new ad each month, instead of once every year or two? Any hour of programming that does not show a commercial dealing with urinary or bowel movement dif culties; mesothelioma; or ambulance-chasing lawyers saying "Did you cut your nger opening a can of beans? If so, you deserve compensation. Call our of ce at once!" Any news anchor or other presenter who received an "A" in his/her grammar class. I award myself 500 points each time I hear "between he and I" or "when police arrived, the victim was laying on the ground." Any new-car advertiser with the guts to state "This new model will cost you $44,000. Take it or leave it." Instead the TV ad will say something like "After a mere $3,000 down payment you'll owe us only $488 a month for the next seven short years. So, come on down!" I may have exaggerated in some of my foregoing statements, but I'm sure the television companies and their sponsors will not notice. Or care. They can say, quite correctly, "Quit your complaining, pal. You can always change channels or hit the OFF button. Which I often do. But a better way to think of TV is not as a time-consuming wasteland but as a potential storehouse of information, much of it useful. Instead of dismissing a program as a piece of junk, maybe we should take time to ask: Am I learning anything new from what I'm watching? Does it connect me with the outside world? Does it bring me closer to the human race? Open-mindedness (about almost anything) may take more time and effort than judgmentalism, but the payoff can be life-changing.

The mission of the Community Dental Clinic is to provide low-income, uninsured or underinsured adults of upper Pinellas County access to basic dental care and education through volunteer service and community partnerships. In 2009, access to dental services was identi ed as the number one social service need in Pinellas County. For this reason, the Salvation Army, Clearwater Free Clinic, and The Arc of Tampa Bay collaborated to establish the Community Dental Clinic. 100 Women Who Care of Pinellas County is a philanthropic group that provides an avenue for women to join together to bring nancial support to local, charitable organizations that have a 501(c)3 status. Members commit to attending four meetings per year (one per quarter) and pledge to donate $100 to an elected charity at each meeting. The members have the opportunity to nominate any organization, three of the nominated organizations are then randomly selected to give a 5-minute presentation, a vote is taken, and then checks are written directly to the winning charity. Since February of 2013, the group has given $183,000 to local charities. The group's next meeting will take place Tuesday, Aug. 21, 7 to 8 p.m., at Cove Cay Golf Club, 2612 Cove Cay Drive, Clearwater. A social hour will run 6 to 7 p.m., at the Cove Cay restaurant.

The milestone surgery took place June 26. Since 2012 when doctors at Morton Plant partnered across specialties to introduce TAVR to the Tampa Bay area, hundreds of patients suffering from severe aortic stenosis have experienced this life-changing procedure allowing them to regain the quality of life that once seemed impossible. TAVR, a minimally invasive heart valve replacement surgery, was originally used for patients with severe aortic stenosis who were not candidates for open heart valve replacement surgery. In the past few years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has expanded the approval of TAVR to those patients at intermediate risk of complications from open heart surgery. "This surgical milestone is more than a number. We are proud of the patients and families we have served," said Joshua Rovin, M.D., FACS, cardiovascular surgeon and medical director, Center for Advanced Valve and Structural Heart Care at Morton Plant Hospital. "Over the past six years, since we performed the rst TAVR surgery at Morton Plant Hospital, we have given hope to countless individuals suffering from severe aortic stenosis who had no other hope for an improved quality of life." Morton Plant's TAVR team includes cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists and cardiac anesthesiologists who work together to determine the best medical or surgical options for each patient Photo SUBMITTEDPictured are, from left, Brenda George, 100 Women Who Care co-leader; Phyllis Schaefer, 100 Women Who Care member; Joanne Gilch, 100 Women Who Care member; Leah Slavensky, 100 Women Who Care member; Pamela Iusi, Community Dental Clinic executive director and 100 Women Who Care member; Kara Eads, Community Dental Clinic Volunteer; Sally McLane Evans, 100 Women Who Care member; Colton Akins, Community Dental Clinic volunteer; Sheila Jasper, Community Dental Clinic Clinical Coordinator; Karen Snipes, 1000 Women Who Care member; and Julie Webster, 100 Women Who Care co-leader.

10A Community Leader, July 5, 2018 By MELVIN BAKERTampa Bay NewspapersMADEIRA BEACH Business people, civic leaders, local elected officials and representatives of local chambers of commerce came together at Madeira Beach City Hall on June 21 with the aim of uniting in opposition to one single issue: drilling off the Gulf Coast of Florida. Some 30 people heard from local environmental activists about why it was important to keep Gulf beaches untainted by oil after the Trump administration recently showed signs of wavering on the drilling moratorium put in place following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in April 2010. David Yates, CEO of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, noted that public perception about the state of the state's beaches was critical. Even though Pinellas County did not receive any damage from the spill "we saw firsthand the impact of the oil spill." Hotels and tourism-related businesses lost bookings and income because out-of-state visitors believed the entire state to be blackened by oil. Many businesses closed. He said a year after the spill, 18 percent of Americans still thought the county had oil on its beaches. The result, Yates said, was a "multimilliondollar impact." Tourism is the biggest industry in the state, Yates continued, accounting for 1.5 million jobs. Out-of-state spending by tourist amounts to $112 billion a year, about 10 percent of Florida's GDP. The impact of another such disaster would not be short-term, he said. Potential tourists go elsewhere, find "they like it and they don't come back." The issue of offshore drilling is a "surprisingly bipartisan issue," Yates added. He encouraged those "to be vocal, be visible" and express their views to local, county, state and federal of cials. "I can tell you your voice does matter." If another spill occurred, he said, "the impact will be severe, thousands of jobs will be lost, on a long-term basis." Yates' sentiments were echoed by the two other speakers at the forum, which was organized by the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. Andrew Hayslip, executive director of Tampa Bay Waterkeeper, was working for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at the time of the spill. His job was to produce maps to show the daily expansion and direction of travel of the oil spill, and he said he experienced a "level of terror" as the spill continued to balloon. The impact of the spill is still not fully known, he said. Hunter Miller, the Florida Gulf Coast organizer for Oceana, said the Trump administration's recent actions on offshore drilling were "extremely troubling." The president has issued an executive order to "reassess" the current offshore leases, he noted. While the federal moratorium on drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico does not expire until 2022, the Department of Interior released a draft lease proposal in January that encompasses nearly all of the U.S., he said, including the eastern coast of Florida, the Florida Straits and the eastern Gulf. During the previous week, Miller added, some members of Congress had proposed levying hefty fines against states that opt out of federal offshore drilling. The "few rules" that were put in place after the spill, such as requirements for a blow-out preventer, "are likely going to be overturned," he said, charging that the oil industry was "actively trying to undo the rules." "We've got to be vigilant because they really want this," he said. Miller said he has encouraged local coastal communities to pass resolutions to document their opposition to offshore drilling. Some 70 resolutions have been passed, he said, including every member city of the Barrier Islands Government Council. He asked attendees to join the Florida Gulf Coast Business Coalition, which he said was "laserfocused" on being a united business voice to protect Florida's coast. Miller also encouraged passage of Amendment 9, which will be voted on in November. It would install a permanent constitutional ban on offshore drilling in state waters. Yates said that while there was a "very short term need to see this (drilling) stopped," the entire area needed to develop a long-term strategy. Audience members offered their own questions and comments. Chuck Wray, who said he had been in the tourism business for 29 years, also urged those present to act. He encouraged them to call or visit their state legislators because "it is not self-evident" that every Florida legislator is behind a drilling ban. When federal lawmakers consider such a major issue, he said, they look at "the will of our state government to be against offshore oil drilling." Robin Miller, president and CEO of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce, said that with elections in the air, she likes to ask candidates to state in public how they will act on the issue. She asked each of those present to contact six other people to get them involved. Miller also encouraged them to become members of the Gulf Coast Business Coalition.Beaches getting ready to rumble over oil drilling MADEIRA BEACH By WAYNE AYERSTBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH More than a dozen large-scale development projects are planned or underway in the city, bringing concerns of increased traf c congestion. The developments and their status were on a list supplied by city Planning Director Linda Portal at the June 26 City Commission workshop meeting. An assessment by Florida Department of Transportation of cials of the traf c impact of the two largest developments coming to the city's eastern gateway corridor along 150th Avenue and Madeira Way brought questions and concerns from commission members. Fourteen projects were on Portal's list of "major redevelopment/ economic development activities" that she said were either planned or projected to be undertaken during the upcoming scal year, or underway now. The project of greatest impact, Portal said, is the Town Centre on 150th Avenue and Madeira Way, with multiple hotel and condo buildings, which Portal said is in the site plan review process. Also, the Holiday Isles planned development, on the Intracoastal south of the Causeway Bridge, has begun design and preliminary site plan review. Both of these developments are massive. The Town Centre project is expected to cost $16 million, according to Portal's report. The other major projects on Portal's list include the Barefoot Beach Resort expansion, which is 80 percent complete, and the Madeira Bay condos, which will cost over $7 million. Others are Madeira del Mar Condominiums, in site plan review, the Madeira Shores subdivision, Gulf Grill restaurant, the large John's Pass Resort Hotel, which is still at the concept review stage, the Azul condos, and a large number of single-family home renovations and new construction projects. Portal said her Community Development staff reviews over 100 development plans, "some large, some small," each month. "I don't see any slowdown in that," she said. All the development going on caused the commissioners to critically question David Skrelunas, FDOT traffic engineer, when he explained the methodology used to assess the traffic impact after the Town Centre and Holiday Isles developments are nished. When a new development is proposed, the FDOT does a traf c count to determine if the roadways can handle the additional traffic. Changes, such as adding a traf c signal or left turn lane, may be needed. Or, FDOT approval can be withheld if it is determined the road system will be overburdened in any case. "If FDOT says the roadway meets all the standards, they by statute have to allow for development to occur," said City Manager Jonathan Evans. Commissioner Nancy Oakley said she had not seen any traf c counts for the Town Centre or Holiday Isles developments. She also said the traf c study was done in the early morning rather than the afternoon, which she said was "a joke." FDOT's Skrelunas said the traf c counts, done by a strip on the road, measure traf c all day. Commissioner John Douthirt said there are other developments that would affect the traf c counts on 150th and should be included in the traf c analysis. He pointed out that people going to new developments on Gulf Boulevard and at John's Pass Village would travel over the Causeway Bridge and 150th Avenue to get to their destination. Skrelunas said a traffic count is done for each proposed development as it comes up, and that is added to the existing count before measuring the impact of another development. "All the projects that have been approved are included," said Skrelunas. Douthirt said he wants to make sure all the traffic concerns are addressed before FDOT approves a development. "I just don't want this to be an after-the-fact type of situation," Douthirt said. "We don't want to say, We shouldn't have allowed that.'" Douthirt also suggested the city do an independent traffic study to measure the impact of the developments, rather than rely only on FDOT, an action Evans said would be costly. "A basic traffic study can be anywhere from 20to 30,000 dollars," said Evans. He said the Holiday Isles development will be going through a traf c study, and "you may be better off to allow them to complete their study and then have an independent traffic engineer review the study," which would cost far less. Evans said the traffic issue would be discussed further at a future meeting. Officials from the FDOT will review the commissioners' concerns and be invited back to address the traf c issue and answer some of the questions raised.Development boom creates traf c concerns for officials MADEIRA BEACH A watermelon world recordAt top, former Safety Harbor City Commissioner Scott Long organized the 2018 Melons for Moolah, a “competitive” eating contest July 1 at Safety Harbor Waterfront Park that raised more than $10,000 for local charities and also set a new Guinness World Record, pending approval, for most contestants with 259 participants.Photos by JEFF ROSENFIELD ALL HAIR-ALL HOURS 1890 West Bay Drive  W-6  Largo727-455-1011 Hair Replacement SpecialistThinning Hair?SENIOR DAYS Thursday & Friday by appointment only20% OFF$8 Haircutsby appointment only060718 13902 Walsingham Road, Largo727-595-2287www.AHLargo.com022218LOW COSTVACCINATION CLINICEvery Thursday from 8am-Noon Michael R.

Coheed and Cambria is a rare band whose music is able to transcend “scenes” and effortlessly cross genres of rock – from indie to progressive, to metal and poppunk to classic rock. The band is frequently compared to progressive, operatic rock bands of the ’70s, ala Queen, Supertramp or Rush, due to their thrilling concept albums.

For information, visit Pete ArtWorks to host new exhibitST. PETERSBURG – A opening reception for a new exhibition of work by artist David Larson Evans will take place Saturday, July 21, 6 to 9 p.m., at St. Pete ArtWorks, 2412 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. The event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will continue through Aug. 11. While visitors to the gallery are familiar with Evan’s nude paintings, most do not know that he is also an accomplished printmaker. The artist took up oil painting seriously in 2007 as a break from the life as a printmaker. He had many years of sporting ink stained hands while mastering that medium. The challenge now is to paint the “person.” Not just the obvious, but to look closer toward the unique self and to subtly convey that to the viewer. His goal is to paint something signi cant, discover the beauty, and then contemplate it, a lifetime process. For information, call 727-710-7716.Gulfport Art and Gallery Walk setGULFPORT – The next Gulfport Art and Gallery Walk will take place Friday, July 6, 6 to 10 p.m., on Beach Boulevard in downtown Gulfport.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 at the door. Visit Birchwood released “Pick Your Poison,” his forward-looking new CD on Alligator Records, in May 2017. On the new album, Birchwood – along with his band-saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie – takes a major step forward, crafting visionary blues for a new generation of forward-looking fans. With his ery guitar and lap steel playing; his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs; and his gritty, unvarnished vocals, Birchwood is one of the most remarkable young stars in the blues. According to a biographical sketch provided by Alligator Records, Birchwood possesses a deep familiarity with blues tradition, which allows him to bust the genre wide open, bringing innovative new sounds, colors and textures. He delivers these with a distinctive style that blends a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma. Since the 2014 release “Don’t Call No Ambulance,” Birchwood’s Alligator Records debut, the powerhouse guitarist’s journey from playing small Florida clubs to headlining international festival stages can be described as phenomenal. “Don’t Call No Ambulance” received the Blues Music Award and Living Blues Critics’ Award for Best Debut Album Of 2014. Birchwood also walked away with the 2015 Blues Blast Rising Star Award. Over the last few years, Birchwood and his band have crisscrossed the United States and Europe repeatedly, delivering unforgettable live performances. Now, with “Pick Your Poison,” Birchwood, along with his band – saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie – is taking another major step forward, crafting visionary blues for a new generation of forward-looking fans. Birchwood wrote and produced all 13 songs on “Pick Your Poison.” His richly detailed, hard-hitting originals run the emotional gamut from the humorously personal “My Whiskey Loves My Ex” to the gospel-in ected “Even the Saved Need Saving” to the hard truths of the topical “Corporate Drone” and “Police State” to the existential choice of the title track. The cutting-edge songs are made all the more impactful by Birchwood’s gruff vocals, his untamed musicianship and his band’s seemingly telepathic accompaniment. “I write and sing what I know,” said Birchwood in a press release. “This album has a broad reach. It’s for young, old and everyone in between.” Alligator Records president Bruce Iglauer signed Birchwood to the label shortly after the bluesman won the 2013 International Blues Challenge as well as the Albert King Guitarist Of The Year Award at the same event, “Selwyn writes smart, infectious, fresh songs and delivers them with a warm, conversational vocal style and a fun-loving attitude,” Iglauer said. “He’s a killer guitarist, switching between a regular six-string and lap steel. Live, he’s a ball of energy, interacting with the audience like they were in his living room.” Birchwood was born in 1985 in Orlando. He rst grabbed a guitar at age 13 and soon became proficient at mimicking what he heard on the radio. He quickly grew tired of the popular grunge rock, hip-hop and metal of the 1990s. Then he heard some classic Jimi Hendrix. “He was larger than life,” Birchwood said. “What he did was mind-blowing. When I realized Hendrix was in uenced by the blues, I found my path.” By 17, Birchwood was deep into the blues, listening to Albert King, Freddie King, Albert Collins, Muddy Waters, Lightnin’ Hopkins and especially Buddy Guy. Birchwood announced his arrival on the international blues stage with 2014’s “Don’t Call No Ambulance.” The album is a fully realized vision of contemporary blues. Between his uninhibited sense of fun and adventure and his serious-as-a-heartattack musicianship, “Don’t Call No Ambulance” opened a door into a bright future for the blues. “There’s nothing I’d rather be doing than playing the blues,” Birchwood said. “And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance.” Photo by GAIL GERDES/INTREPID ARTISTSSelwyn Birchwood plays Skipper’s Smokehouse July 13.

Entertainment 3B Leader, July 5, 2018Rated: R In an action-packed drama reminiscent of ‘80s techno-scithrillers, Jackie Chan stars as Lin, a police inspector in modern Hong Kong. While tracking down a deranged, mecha-enhanced villain, Lin discovers that a geneticist’s lost bio-chemical invention has been surgically implanted into his missing daughter. With the help of a young hacker, Lin connects the dots between the device that haunts his daughter, his enemy’s sinister army, and a strange cultural phenomenon called “Bleeding Steel.”‘Sorry to Bother You’Genre: Comedy, fantasy and science ction Cast: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Terry Crews, Steven Yeun, Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler and Danny Glover Director: Boots Riley Rated: R In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stan eld) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of “power-calling” that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius’ career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who’s secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company’s cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. ‘Whitney’Genre: Documentary Cast: Whitney Houston Director: Kevin Macdonald Rated: R Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals and death at age 48. The documentary feature “Whitney” is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’s life.

PETERSBURG – Erasure will perform Saturday, July 7, 8 p.m., at The Mahaffey, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $39.50. Call 727-893-7832 or visit www.themahaffey. com. The English synthpop group featuring Andy Bell and Vince Clarke are touring in support of “World Beyond,” a re-recording of their 2017 album “World Be Gone” as a post-classical rework. Erasure originally formed in London in 1985. “Who Needs Love Like That” was their debut single. “Sometimes,” their fourth single, propelled the duo onto the UK Singles Chart. Erasure became one of the most successful artists of the late 1980s to mid-1990s. “The Innocents,” Erasure’s third studio album, helped solidify their success. Released in 1988, the album went triple platinum in the UK and platinum in the United States. “The Innocents” generated three Top 20 hits, including “Ship of Fools,” “Chains of Love” and “A Little Respect.” The album was the rst in a string of ve consecutive No. 1 albums in the UK for Erasure. The other chart-toppers include “Crackers International,” “Wild!,” “Chorus,” “Abba-esque” and “I Say I Say I Say.” In 1992, the duo released the singles compilation “Pop! – The First 20 Hits,” which also hit No. 1 and went triple platinum. The compilation featured all the band’s singles released from 1985 to 1992. Erasure recently collaborated with Echo Collective, the Brussels based collective of post-classical musicians, on “World Beyond.” The collaboration sees the entirety of Erasure’s latest album, “World Be Gone,” re-imagined as a post-classical rework. “World Beyond” was recorded over 10 days by Bell and seven performers from the Echo Collective: Margaret Hermant (violin, harp), Neil Leiter (viola), Thomas Engelen (cello), Jaroslaw Mroz (double bass), Gary De Cart (piano) and Antoine Dandoy (vibraphone, glockenspiel). The album was produced by Echo Collective, mixed by Gareth Jones and arranged by the Echo Collective’s De Cart, Hermant and Leiter. “The process of this project was really deconstruction and re-purposing,” Leiter explained in a press release promoting the album. “We started by listening to each track layer by layer, and then, using the layers that inspired us or we found essential, we reconstructed the tracks instrumentally. Each of the instruments in the band setup were chosen for their inherent capacities and roles. Often choosing which layer to put with each instrument was a question of matching roles and colors. By stripping so much away, we were able to nd a new space for Andy to ll. The text of the songs became much more important in the overall construction of the songs, and Andy was free to explore more dynamics and vocal range.” The tracks featured on “World Beyond” show award-winning songwriters Clarke and Bell in a more re ective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination. This new collaboration gives a new dimension to the tracks – including fan-favorites “Still It’s Not Over,” which tackles the LGBT rights movement post-Stonewall; and “Lousy Some of Nothing,” a ballad for our post-truth age – but the band’s optimism about the future remains clear and bright. “…the reinterpretations have brought such enormous context to the songs, it has created a new place for them,” said Bell. The original idea for the album developed from Clarke, who initially suggested that a single from “World Be Gone” could be given an orchestral reinterpretation, but as the idea expanded and took shape, he spoke at length to the Echo Collective ahead of the recording. “It was great to talk through ideas with Echo Collective and then see how their arrangements took shape,” said Clarke. “The collaboration has given elements of the album a whole new feel and Andy’s vocals remain as powerful and uplifting as ever.” The collaboration is a natural progression from 1987’s “The Two Ring Circus,” a companion EP for the band’s second album, “The Circus,” which included several orchestral interpretations.
