Golf cart concernsTHE REQUEST Members of the Palm Hill Mobile Home Park community seek to use golf carts on city roadways to get from Eighth Avenue Southwest to downtown Largo. REASONS IT WAS DENIED The city’s Traf c and Transportation Committee cited safety concerns in urging the commission to deny the request. The committee said the existing roadway network doesn’t provide safe areas for golf carts to cross. Also, all roadways in the city have speed limits higher than the maximum speed of a golf cart, 20 mph, which would cause issues between the carts and other cars.

In the fall of 2017, city administration received a request from members of the Palm Hill Mobile Home Park community to allow golf carts on city roadways for the areas located between Eighth Avenue Southwest and West Bay Drive and between Clearwater-Largo Road and Seminole Boulevard, Engineering Services assistant director Rafal Cieslak said during a July 10 City Commission work session. The city's Traffic and Transportation Committee, which is comprised of members from several departments, including police, fire, public works, community development, engineering services and recreation, parks and arts, recommended denying the request out of safety concerns. City Commissioner John Carroll, a former Largo police chief, agreed with the committee. "From my background, I'm opposed to the idea of putting golf carts on the street," he said. Carroll said golf carts are suited well for some areas, such as Dunedin, but Largo wasn't one of them, adding that he was concerned allowing them would only open the door to more requests elsewhere. This is not the first time Carroll has expressed concerns about the carts on city streets. When he was police chief in 2012, Carroll advised against the move after a resident made a similar request. Commissioner Curtis Holmes also cited safety concerns in deciding to deny the request from Palm Hill, City hits brakes on golf carts By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersLARGO The Pinellas County School District recently announced that many of its schools had shown improvement in the 2018 school grades report released June 27 by the Florida Department of Education. For the fourth consecutive year, the district maintained a B grade on a scale ranging from A-F and improved its overall score 22 points across the school grade categories, according to a press release. The district also showed improvement in eight of 11 categories, of cials said. In the press release, district of cials said they were "especially proud of the overall performance of our high schools and middle schools, and is pleased that a vast majority of schools throughout the district earned an A, B or C." "Our dedicated teachers and school leaders have worked diligently to improve academic achievement in all of our schools. I am encouraged by the progress we have achieved, particularly in our high schools. I am con dent Pinellas will actualize the goal of becoming an A district, with every school earning an A or B," said Michael Grego, Pinellas County Schools superintendent. According to school grade improvements highlighted by the district, 90 percent of all Pinellas schools earned an A, B or C and nearly half had an A or B. In addition, every Pinellas high school earned an A, B or C grade. Overall, the number of schools scoring an A increased from 32 to 36. District officials pointed out that six schools improved to an A: Frontier Elementary, Oldsmar Elementary, Orange Grove Elementary, Palm Harbor Middle, Palm Harbor University High School and Southern Oak Elementary. Six schools improved to a B: Clearwater High, Countryside High, Largo High, North Shore Elementary, Osceola Middle and Pinellas Park High School. Five schools improved to a C: Azalea Middle, Largo Middle, Maximo Elementary, Mildred Helms Elementary and John M. Sexton Elementary. In addition, two schools improved by two letter grades: Southern Oak Elementary improved from a C to an A and Azalea Middle from an F to a C. Four alternative education sites improved their rating, including Clearwater Report: Grades on rise in PinellasLargo high, middle schools among those that improved Children and adults enjoy the foam block pit and air bags July 5 at the recently opened Sky Zone Clearwater/ Largo in Largo. The more than 30,000-square-foot trampoline park features several activities, including a Warrior Course, walled trampoline dodgeball court, Skyslam court, SkyJousting, rock-climbing wall and more. Story and photos by CHRIS GEORGE  Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Chris Fiore, co-owner of Sky Zone Clearwater/Largo, has a warning for parents before bringing their children to the new trampoline park: Your kids probably won't want to leave. At least that has been his experience since Pinellas County's rst Sky Zone opened on Memorial Day. The Pennsylvania native says he's seen it rsthand, like when he gave a tour of the 30,000-square-foot facility to a father of three. "I walked around with him and his three kids, and they wouldn't leave," Fiore said. "They were in the parking lot saying why can't we jump? He said, We'll come back I promise.' I was like, that guy probably just did something he shouldn't have." Fiore, who owns the park off 66th Street in Largo with his father, Jim, said there are plenty of reasons Sky Zone makes kids feel that way.

Largo 3A Leader, July 12, 2018which has nearly 1,100 residents, according to its website. "These golf carts they're going to get on the sidewalk. It's inevitable," he said. "They're not going to be comfortable operating this slow-speed vehicle on the street itself, so they're going to hop up on the sidewalk. It will just happen."Statutes and safetyIn making its decision, Cieslak said the committee reviewed state law, compared low-speed vehicles to golf carts and looked at surrounding municipalities to see if they have policies that allow golf carts. Robert Hatton, an engineer with the city, briefed the commission on Florida law, which states that golf carts are not allowed on state roads and are only allowed on county and city roads with posted speed limits less than 35 mph if the commission adopts regulations, such as signage. "Roads that have been designated for use by golf carts must have signs posted to let users know they can use their golf carts as well as drivers know that golf carts can be on the road and to be aware of their presence," Hatton said. Cieslak said staff have yet to conduct an analysis on how much it would cost to install the signs. In Pinellas Park, for instance, the city installed about 550 signs in 2012 at a cost of just over $12,000. Also, carts can only be on the roads from sunrise to sunset and drivers must be age 14 or older. Low-speed vehicles, which are similar to golf carts but have a maximum speed of 20 to 25 mph and added safety features, such as seat belts, headlights and turn signals, can operate on roadways with posted speed limits lower than 35 mph unless prohibited. They also must be registered, insured and the operator must have a valid driver's license. Carroll said if people want to drive the streets, they should consider purchasing one of the vehicles instead of a golf cart. "If the people requesting this were to fix their own situation by buying low-speed vehicles instead of a golf cart, we wouldn't have to have this discussion," he said. Since the city is divided by several major roadways and each street in the city has a speed limit higher than the maximum speed of a golf cart, which is 20 mph, the committee also said carts would cause traf c safety issues with other vehicles. Their use on brick streets also caused concerns for the committee. "I think it's just a bad idea," Holmes said. Chris George is editor of the Largo Leader.

GOLF CARTS, from page 1A TBN FILE PHOTOIf the city of Largo did approve the use of golf carts on certain city streets, like Pinellas Park did in 2012, it would have to install signage to let operators know they can use their golf carts and drivers know that golf carts can be on the road and to be aware of their presence. In Pinellas Park, the city installed about 550 signs in 2012 at a cost of just over $12,000. 071218 Service CenterFamily Owned 2018 Reader’s Choice Award BEST Service Center 11 Years #1 Most Extended Warranties Accepted KBB Certi ed Financing Available! 1st Place Winner Reg# MV-66432 393-2216 071218 8350 Seminole Blvd. C a l l F o r A p p o i n t m e n t Call For Appointment B E T T E R S E R V I C E H O N E S T Y I N C L U D E D BETTER SERVICE, HONESTY INCLUDED $ $ 3 9 39 9 8 98 P r e P u r c h a s e C a r Pre Purchase Car I n s p e c t i o n Inspection!

Besides scores of connected trampolines, the Fiores say their park offers activities that others don't, such as a walled trampoline dodgeball court, a Skyslam court that allows jumpers to dunk on rims of different heights, a foam zone where kids and adults can ip into a pool of huge foam squares, SkyJousting on pedestals over a foam pit, a rock-climbing wall above a pool of foam blocks and more. General manager Gabrielle Garcia said a lot of trampoline parks just feature the trampolines, so what makes this park different are the extra activities, such as a Warrior Course based on the "American Ninja Warrior" TV show that includes a variety of obstacles. "I think what we're seeing in our reviews is our ninja course is out of this world," she said.Jumping on an opportunityThe Fiores faced their own obstacles in transforming a former Super Thrift store that had been vacant for four years into Pinellas County's rst Sky Zone. Just over three years ago, Jim Fiore was nearing the end of his 34-year sales career at Xerox when he and Chris started to consider future ventures in Pennsylvania. "We were looking into a number of different franchises," Jim said. "We were looking into like Subway and different places." They were getting close to settling on Anytime Fitness when a friend of Chris' got a job at a Sky Zone and raved about it. Jim had never heard of the franchise before, but he and Chris checked it out and were impressed with the potential. All of the franchise locations were taken in Pennsylvania, so they broadened their search. Since the nearest Sky Zone is in Brandon, they believed Largo and Pinellas County was a prime opportunity and jumped on it three years ago. The Fiores found a location they liked next door to a new apartment complex, and Chris moved to Largo in March 2016. "I moved down here thinking we were going to start the buildout two years ago," Chris said. It didn't happen. Negotiating the lease turned out to be a dif cult and lengthy process. It wasn't until December 2017 that it was settled and redevelopment of the massive facility could begin. "We regutted everything," Jim said. "It was a big-dollar project." Chris said it was a much bigger investment than they had planned on making, but once construction commenced, things just fell into place and they were nally able to open the doors at the end of May. "The feelings were kind of lost really quick because it's so overwhelming," Chris said. "There was really no time to embrace it."Safety rstChris said he has learned a lot along the way, but the most important lesson has been how to keep children safe. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were an estimated 145,207 injuries as a result of trampolines in 2017. Also, a study published in the American Academy of Pediatrics showed that 6,932 trampoline park injuries led to emergency room visits in 2014. The inherent risk is why anyone who jumps at the park must sign a liability waiver. The Fiores and Garcia, who was a program director at a YMCA in Tampa, say they are aware of the reputation some trampoline parks have, which is why they and Sky Zone have placed extra emphasis on safety. "Sky Zone came up with the national safety standards, so they are known for safety, but they are also the ones who wrote the book on it," Garcia said. The rst measure they take is separating all the jumpers by age and size. So, for instance, an 18year-old and an 8-year-old can't jump in the same area. "That was always the top complaint since we signed on three years ago age, size separation because parents always want to jump with their kids," Chris said. "But now we offer the rock climbing wall, we offer the basketball, the warrior course, so the parents can do everything with their child on those, they just can't jump on the trampolines." Also, they have strict rules about cameras and their 67 staff members watching each station, kids can't jump on the same square, run or triple jump, and there are procedures in place in case someone does get hurt. "The safety is so unbelievably pushed that people don't even realize the amount of training that has to go into it," Garcia said.More than just jumpingThey say the safety standards mean they can cater to people of all ages, sizes and abilities, including kids with sensory issues. On Thursday nights, Sky Zone dims the lights and turns the music down to provide a toneddown experience for those with special needs. "You'll see that we have autistic kids playing dodgeball with regular mainstream kids and it's just so cool to see," Garcia said. "Every week we get more and more people." The park offers a lot more, she said, including a pair of summer camps and plenty of special events. On Friday, July 13, it will kick off its rst Glow Night when lasers, music and blacklight transform the park into a jumping dance club. Later that evening will be the park's first Lock-in, an overnight party featuring a dodgeball tournament, pillow fight, dance party, video games and more. On Wednesday, July 18, Sky Zone will host the Taste of the Bay Battle dodgeball tournament, which will feature food from several local restaurants while teams of 10 battle for the championship. Garcia added that they also host birthday parties, corporate events and fundraisers, such as the ones they are holding for athletic programs at Seminole and Pinellas Park high schools.

6A County Leader, July 12, 2018 Around PinellasCreative Pinellas announces call to artists for countywide community art projectCreative Pinellas, the county's Local Arts Agency, has released a Call to Artists for an ambitious community-driven public art project. This opportunity is open to Pinellas County artists. It will focus on a singular artwork or grouped assemblage that will travel over a number of years to multiple locations throughout the county from the northernmost border of Tarpon Springs to St. Pete Beach and multiple destinations in between. Locations for this project have already been identi ed in Downtown Oldsmar, Clearwater East Community Library at St. Petersburg College, Central Park Performing Arts Center, Pier 60 Park, Josiah Cephus Weaver Park, War Veterans Memorial Park, Weedon Island Preserve and the Lealman Community Center. This effort is a countywide arts project, designed to bring art into residents' and visitors' daily lives through work that encourages interaction and is accessible to all. Its goal is to inspire residents' pride and interest in the community and highlight Pinellas County's place as a world-class tourism, arts and culture destination. "We know that Pinellas is a county with huge potential for continually growing our arts scene," said Jessica McCormick, the public art project coordinator for Creative Pinellas. "We think this project can excite and unite the people of Pinellas with a shared community experience and foster a sense of pride for where we live. Plus, we get to give visitors yet another reason to visit and enjoy what this county has to offer." This art project is funded from the BP settlement funds related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill with the support of the Pinellas County Commission. Over the last six months, Creative Pinellas has been working with local municipal partners to identify which countywide locations could best serve this art project, as well as gathering Tampa Bay arts educators, artists, community builders, and business in uencers to serve as a project panel that has helped to craft the Call to Artists and will act as stewards to continually push the project forward. "At Creative Pinellas, we are excited to work with our county and municipal partners to bring this exciting project to life," said Barbara St. Clair, executive director of Creative Pinellas. "The artwork will be the product of a truly local effort, employing Pinellas County artists to deliver a unique public art project to the residents and visitors of Pinellas County. This project will focus on supporting artists who live and work in Pinellas County, and will deliver a unique public artwork. The project also will help highlight the amazing depth of talent we have in the artists who call Pinellas County home, and we're pleased to be able to provide this high quality-commission opportunity." The Call to Artists will be open until 11:59 p.m. Aug. 17. To view the Call to Artists, and to learn about the project and its goal of a connected Pinellas County, visit creativepinellas.org/communityart.Two Sunstar Paramedics employees honoredLARGO Two Sunstar Paramedics employees, Damian Gonzales and Joshua Daly, have received the American Ambulance Association's Stars of Life award, which recognizes ambulance service professionals for outstanding service and dedication.

County 7A Leader, July 12, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTERTampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners listened to a lengthy update June 14 on the Capital Improvement Program as well as reports on projects recently completed or in the works. County staff maintains a sixyear CIP that is updated during the annual budget process for the next scal year. The rst year of the CIP must be balanced and funds to pay for projects must be legally appropriated, explained Jackie Trainer with the Of ce of Management and Budget. The rest of the years in the program, in this case years two-six, re ect a nancial and production plan for the future needs. Trainer started with an overview for FY 19 CIP to be paid for from Enterprise Funds, including $22.5 million for the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport, $14.5 million for the Water Department, $39.1 million for Sewer and $33.4 million for Solid Waste. She then talked about $222.1 million in projects to be paid for with Governmental Funds, which include $160.3 million in infrastructure sales surtax, aka Penny for Pinellas; $19.3 million in grant money; $17.5 million in Local Option Fuel Tax; $19.1 in Tourist Development Tax revenue; and $5.9 million from other revenues and fees. A breakdown of "where the funding goes" shows $92.9 million for transportation, $34 million for public safety, $32.6 million for general government services, $31.5 million for physical environment, $28.1 for culture and recreation, $2.3 million for human services and $725,000 for economic environment. Trainer said voter approval of Penny IV for FY 2020-2030 took the uncertainty out of the ability to fund projects in the CIP after FY 2019, allowing staff to advance proposed Penny IV critical projects so they can be started sooner. She said requests had come in to begin preliminary design of 26 new Penny funded projects at a cost of $4.4 million. The plan is to do the design work in FY 2019 so the projects will be "shovel ready" in FY 2020, said County Administrator Mark Woodard. Requests for full funding for new Penny projects also are coming in and include $3 million for the Affordable Housing Land Assembly Fund, $2.2 million for Taylor Lake Seawall Replacement, $900,000 for Lakeshore Estates Phase 2 roadway and drainage, $1.8 million for sidewalks on 42nd Avenue North, $983,000 for an HVAC for the Lealman Community Campus, $1.6 million for replacement of dog kennels at Animal Services, $10 million to replace radio equipment shelters, $4.5 million to replace the EMS Ridgecrest radio tower and equipment shelter and $3 million for the Redington rescue station. Requests for new Penny funded projects, including the preliminary design, total $32.2 million. Woodard said some of the projects could be completed in one year, such as replacement of the dog kennels at Animal Services, and some projects would take several years. Trainer also reviewed several CIP projects to be funded from Transportation Trust Fund reserves at a cost of $17 million during FY 2019 and FY 2020. These projects include LED street light replacement at $1.25 million, sidewalks at $3.5 million, roadway resurfacing at $5.5 million, bridge rehabilitation at $1.5 million, Belleair Road Complete Street design at $250,000, safety improvements at $1 million, and $4.3 million in Intelligent Transportation System and Advanced Traffic Management System projects, which would be funded by the 9th cent fuel tax. Woodard told commissioners about what he called a "structural imbalance" in the Transportation Trust Fund due to less revenue coming in from the gas tax. He said revenue coming into the fund remains at while the cost of expenditures is going up. He said Penny revenue could be used for capital expenses but not operations and maintenance. Additional money will be needed to pay for expenses in the future, he said, adding that the Commission could consider an additional gas tax levy. Aubrey Phillips, who takes care of OMB's Strategic Performance Management, updated commissioners on staff's plan to use a "portfolio approach" for CIP projects. She said using portfolio management for capital projects would help prioritize and manage development to provide the best value to the county. Using the portfolio approach, projects with multiple benefits would move to the top of the list. The plan calls for starting to use the new method in FY 2019 with full implementation in FY 2020. Woodard said it would be important to communicate the reason for the new method to the public and make sure that some don't feel neglected when their project doesn't make it to the top of the list. An example of a portfolio approach on a roadway project would take into consideration not only the roadway itself but additional needs such as drainage and sidewalks. The plan is to do all the work at one time so areas aren't impacted more than once by construction.

Under the direction of new director Glenn Wardell, the department will continue work with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce and the county's Consumer Protection Department to fight unlicensed contracting. The department will operate at 12600 Belcher Road, Suite 102, Largo, until later this month, when it will move to county-owned of ce space at the Young-Rainey Science, Technology and Research (STAR) Center on Bryan Dairy Road in Largo. The Contractor Licensing Department assumes the operations function of the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board, a formerly independent body that was created by special act of the Florida Legislature in 1973. The PCCLB regulates the county's construction and home improvement industry through uniform contractors licensing, code adoption and code interpretation. In 2018, the Legislature amended a state law to revise the composition of the PCCLB and the terms of its board members. In addition, the PCCLB's operations and staff became an operating department under the County Administrator. The Contractor Licensing Department is responsible for dayto-day administration, records maintenance and contractor license investigations in the county. It supports the PCCLB, a dependent agency to the County Commission that will continue to be funded through licensing fees, fines and citations and does not rely on property taxes. On June 19, the commission appointed 11 members to the PCCLB, which has been reduced in size from 21 members to 15. An application process to fill the remaining positions will be held in the near future. Relief in sight for property owners who suffered hurricane damageWhile most Pinellas homeowners weathered the storms, some are still recovering from the damage left behind by the 2016 and 2017 hurricane seasons. For those property owners who weren't so fortunate, relief is in sight. Thanks to a new Florida law, homesteaded residential property owners who suffered hurricane damage from Hurricanes Hermine, Matthew or Irma can now apply for a one-time property tax refund. To apply, visit www.pcpao. org, select the "Forms/Change of Address" tab, and select Application for Abatement of Taxes. Print and sign the form and submit it to your county Property Appraiser via email, fax, or in person by March 1, 2019. You must also submit proof your property was unlivable, such as utility bills, insurance information, or building permit applications. To qualify, your property must have been uninhabitable for a minimum of 30 days in 2016 or 2017 due to one of the three named storms (Hermine, Matthew or Irma). The refund amount is based on the number of days the property was uninhabitable as well as the property's value, as determined by the Property Appraiser, on January 1 of both the storm year and the following year. After submitting the application, the Property Appraiser will review your case and notify you and the Tax Collector if you qualify for a refund. Refunds will be issued after you pay your 2019 property tax bill, which is payable from Nov. 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020. "We are grateful that the Governor and Florida Legislature sided with homeowners to make this property tax abatement program a reality," said Mike Twitty, Pinellas County Property Appraiser. 070518 L A W N R E P L A C E M E N T LAWN REPLACEMENT C A L L M A L O N E Y ’ S CALL MALONEY’S S O D SOD No job too big or too small ! www.maloneysod.comserving Pinellas County for 40 years727-443-2384011118 RRoberts salonandyen Co. 14100 Walsingham Road, Largo727.596.1763 RandyRobertsSalon.comHighlights For Summer Done Expertly Here!050318 *As of 07/05/2018 Subject to availability and price change.

8A Police Leader, July 12, 2018Pinellas Park police arrest suspect in hit, runPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police arrested a 31-year-old Land O'Lakes man July 9 in connection with a June 29 hit-and-run crash that injured a bicyclist. Police say that Kenneth James Robert Stivers turned himself in at the Pinellas Park Police Department on July 9. Stivers was accompanied by his attorney and did not provide a statement. He was booked into the county jail on one count of leaving the scene of a crash resulting in injury. Bond was set at $5,000. He was released on a surety bond at 12:52 a.m. July 10. Stivers is accused of driving the Chevrolet Silverado pickup that struck Duncan Craver, 20, of St. Petersburg, who was attempting to cross U.S. 19 from east to west on his bicycle. Craver had successfully crossed the northbound lanes and was stopped in the median between the northbound and southbound lanes when the truck hit him. Police say Craver was crossing against the traf c control device. Witnesses told police that as the truck was traveling south in the median lane through the intersection it drifted out of the lane for unknown reasons and struck Craver, and then brie y jumped up on to the median before regaining control and continuing south on U.S. 19 eeing the scene. Craver was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his non-lifethreatening injuries. A witness to the crash was able to capture an image of the pickup truck on a dash camera after the truck is seen striking Craver, which was released to the media. Police say they received a large amount of tips in this case and the majority were useful in identifying the suspect in this case.Safety Harbor man dies after motorcycle crashSAFETY HARBOR A 54-year-old Safety Harbor man died at a Tampa hospital July 7 from injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash in Safety Harbor. Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say Robert M. Dobraski was driving a 2006 Harley-Davidson motorcycle eastbound on Third Street North in Safety Harbor about 2:50 a.m. July 7 when he struck a legally parked vehicle in front of a house at 1078 Third St. N. Dobraski was own to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa where he died about 9:57 a.m. Deputies say he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Deputies assigned the Sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team say they later found out that Clearwater police had been trying to locate Dobraski prior to the crash in Safety Harbor because he had crashed his motorcycle in Clearwater earlier that morning. Witnesses told Clearwater police that Dobraski was driving his motorcycle on Sunset Point Road when he struck the median and crashed near Lawson Road in Clearwater. Dobraski got back on his motorcycle and drove off toward Safety Harbor. Investigators say speed and impairment appear to be factors in the crash. Good Samaritans help save man from drowningNORTH REDINGTON BEACH A Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy assisted two good Samaritans who pulled a Tampa man out of the water about 1:49 p.m. July 5 along the beach behind 17250 Gulf Blvd., North Redington Beach. Deputy Dustin Hansen, 32, was conducting beach patrol when he observed two people dragging an unresponsive man from the water toward the beach. He then assisted Leticia Godinez, 66, of Tampa, an off duty registered nurse, and Christopher Minamyer, 34, of Satellite Beach pull the man onto shore. The victim later identified as Daniel M. Mikos, 63, of Tampa was unresponsive and not breathing. Godinez and Minamyer began administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation while Hansen called for paramedics. Hansen also assisted with back blows when Mikos became responsive coughing and choking on seawater. Mikos was transported to Largo Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Witnesses told deputies that Mikos was by himself on the beach when he walked about 25 feet out into the water and disappeared. An unidenti ed person noticed that Mikos had not resurfaced and started yelling for help. Deputies say the incident appears to be accidental in nature.Dunedin man accused of threatening familyDUNEDIN A 71-year-old Dunedin man will receive a mental health evaluation as deputies say they plan to Baker Act him after he threatened his family with a gun, shot the family dog and pointed a gun at a deputy about 5:58 p.m. July 4. Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies responded to a residence on Suemar Road in Dunedin on a report of arguing and gunshots heard. When deputies arrived, they could hear a male yelling inside the residence. Deputies set a perimeter around the home and made contact with Barbara Wheeler, 68, and Ryan Wheeler, 32, who both exited the home at the request of deputies. Deputies then found out that Barbara Wheeler's husband, David Wheeler, had shot and killed the family dog and was still inside the home armed with a handgun. Deputies say prior to shooting the dog, David Wheeler made threats to kill his wife and pointed a .45 caliber handgun at her. David's son, Ryan Wheeler, tried to intervene and David threatened Ryan with the handgun and threatened to shoot himself. Deputies were trying to establish communication with David, when he was spotted pointing a handgun through the front window of the residence at a deputy who was on perimeter. Deputies spent over an hour trying to convince David to exit the residence peacefully with no success. Then, at about 3:35 a.m. July 5, David voluntarily exited his residence and he was taken into custody without incident. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail and charged with two counts of aggravated assault (domestic), one count of animal cruelty, and one count of aggravated assault on a law enforcement of cer. Deputies seized numerous handguns, rifles and shotguns from Wheeler's home.Former Md. deputy accused of sexual misconduct on a child dies in county jailCLEARWATER A 49-year-old Oldsmar man charged July 1 with one count of sexual battery on a child less than 12-years-old was found dead at the Pinellas County Jail July 5 from what detectives say was an apparent suicide. Detention staff found Christopher Wayne Stufft unresponsive in his housing area about 8:29 a.m. He had a ligature around his neck made from items readily available to him in his cell, according to a press release. Medical staff at the jail performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation and paramedics were called. Stufft was pronounced dead at 8:47 a.m. Detectives say he died from what appears to be self-in icted injuries. Detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit began an investigation after a 10-year-old child told her mother that Stufft had sexually battered her. Detectives say Stufft was in a short-term dating relationship with the mother of the female victim. On the night of the incident, Stufft invited the mother and the 10-year-old child over to his residence in Oldsmar for movies. The victim had reportedly fallen asleep on the couch next to her mother and Stufft. Investigators say the mother went outside to the back porch to smoke a cigarette. While the mother was outside, Stufft reportedly vaginally penetrated the victim with his nger underneath her clothing and took photographs of the victim's vaginal area with his cell phone. Detectives say the victim discreetly told her mother of the incident. The mother and the child left Stufft's residence and returned home to call deputies. Detectives interviewed Stufft at his residence about 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 1. Stufft reportedly admitted to having the mother of the victim and her child over to his residence to watch movies, but he denied inappropriately touching the victim. Stufft was arrested at about 2:49 p.m. July 1, and he was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bail was set at $150,000. Detectives con rmed Stufft was a former deputy for the Charles County Sheriff's Of ce in Maryland from 2004 to 2009. His criminal history shows no other arrests.Sheriff’s Of ce warns of new phone scamPinellas County Sheriff's Of ce detectives are encouraging the public to be on alert to a recent phone scam occurring in Pinellas County. The suspect is reportedly calling residents and identifying himself as Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce Chief Deputy Sean Jowell. According to detectives, the suspect identi es himself and informs the resident that they have an outstanding warrant for missing jury duty. The suspect tells the resident that if they don't turn themselves in at the Sheriff's Of ce, or pay the nes, they will be arrested at their residence. The suspect instructs the resident to go to the nearest convenience store to purchase pre-paid debit or gift cards. The suspect instructs the resident to provide the numbers on the back of the card and claims that the warrant will be purged from the system once the money is paid. They also tell the resident if they do not remain on the phone continuously while the resident obtains the cash and purchases the gift cards they will be marked as "non-compliant" and arrested shortly after terminating the phone call. The scammer has been reported to leave a voicemail on the resident's phone stating if they did not return the phone call immediately, they would be marked as "non-compliant" and arrested shortly thereafter. Detectives say the suspect is also "spoo ng" his phone number causing the caller ID to show that the suspect is calling from the Sheriff's Of ce non-emergency phone line 727-582-6200. There have been multiple incidents where Pinellas County residents have been targeted using this scam. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce says it will never call residents requesting money over the telephone. Detectives advise residents to not give personal information or account information over the phone, and call the Sheriff's Of ce to report suspicious activity. If anyone has information on this scam or has become a victim they are asked to call the Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce at 727-582-6200.Police seek info on bank robbery suspectTARPON SPRINGS Tarpon Springs police is seeking information about a suspect involved in the June 30 robbery of Chase Bank, 41206 U.S. 19, Tarpon Springs. Police say a man entered the bank about 10:15 a.m. and told the teller he had a gun and demanded money. He handed the teller a black duffel type bag and ordered the teller to place the cash inside. The man was given an undisclosed amount of currency and he then immediately left the bank. Police believe the man left the scene on foot as no suspect vehicle was observed departing the area. No bank employees were injured during this incident and the suspect stated that he possessed a gun but did not produce one and only implied that he was armed. Police say the suspect was wearing a dark blue navy suit, with white dress shirt and tie. He also was wearing a gray-colored cabbie, or newsboy, type cap and prescription-type eyeglasses. He was described as a black male, 20-30 years of age, between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a thin build Anyone with information can call the Tarpon Springs police detective squad at 727-938-2849.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Police Beat Photo courtesy of PINELLAS PARK POLICEA photo taken by a witness June 29 shows a Chevrolet Silverado pickup striking a bicyclist and then eeing the scene.

Spring and summer bring elevated outside temperatures that can be life threatening to ourselves and to our pets. Every year hundreds of pets die because they are left in parked cars, tethered outside without shade and water, or exercised in hot, humid weather. Heat stroke is a serious threat in Florida. Brachycephalic (short nosed) breeds (Pug, Boston Terrier, Bulldog, Pekingese, and Lhasa Apso) can be more susceptible to heat stroke because panting in these breeds is less effective in decreasing body temperature compared to others. Young dogs that overexert themselves and older dogs with pre-existing diseases are also vulnerable. Dogs have sweat glands only on their feet so sweating will not cool them like it does for us. A normal temperature in a dog or cat is around 101.5 F plus or minus 1-2 degrees. It is considered an emergency when a dog or cat's temperature rises above 105 F. Extremely elevated body temperatures can cause multi-systemic organ failure leading to death. Symptoms of heat stroke include restlessness, panting, excessive drooling, unsteadiness, bright red gums, muscle tremors, seizures, dif culty breathing, increased heart rate, bloody vomit or feces, shock, cardiac arrest, and/or behavior changes. If your pet is showing these signs, remove your pet from the heat source. It would make perfect sense to use ice cold water to decrease core body temperature; however, emerging a dog that is suffering from heat stroke in an ice cold bath could cause serious complications. This may cause constriction of the blood vessels in the skin that will trap heat inside the body. Tap water (room temperature or slightly cool) is recommended in order to cool a heat stroke victim. The goal is to decrease the body temperature to about 103 F. If your dog has heat stroke, it is important that you do not leave him/her unattended for at least 24 hours. Take your pet to a veterinarian immediately to be monitored for serious complications. Some of the symptoms noted above may not occur until later in the day. Leaving pets in a car to run a quick errand can be deadly as temperatures in a parked car may increase by 40 F within one hour. Even on a relatively cool day (70 F) dogs have perished when left in a parked car. Cracking a window will not make a difference even if the car is parked in the shade. Walk your pets in the early morning or late evening when it is cooler. Don't leave them outside for extended periods of time. Also, you do need to worry about their feet as the hot cement and sand can burn their pads. If it is hot to the touch to your foot then it is hot for their feet as well. If you love your pet enough to take them with you, then love them enough to never leave them in a car with the ignition off.

10A Viewpoints Leader, July 12, 2018All this talk about civility is making me crotchety. It's hard to be civil when I get numerous daily reminders that I'm a senior 64 years old in case you want to know. If I get one more phone call from the Medusas of Medicare trying to sell me their snake oil, I swear I'll I'll Not sure what I'll do since I can't reach into the telephone and apply my stapler to their slimy forked tongues. And here comes that darn earworm again: “When I get older losing my hair, many years from now … when I’m 64.” Cursing at the callers seem to cause the opposite of the intended effect because the more I swear at the Medusas, the more they breed. I can't sign up for Medicare until September and yet I'm deluged daily with their calls. I'm spending hours trying to interpret all the nuances of Medicare's Part A, B, C, etc. Tempted to go to Part S: "Screw it." I'll just sign up for the same plan a buddy has and hope Medicare doesn't leave me destitute or drive me nuts. Seek help? I date a psychologist, and she knows I'm waaay beyond help. And I think she's getting the earworm, too. “When I get older losing my hair … will you be calling me crotchety?” That's more like it. How do I embrace civility when we are surrounded by mayhem? Take driving. I like road trips, but I hate traf c. Frequently, I run with the wildebeests on I-4, on my way to Central Florida, where my girlfriend lives. If you think I'm a few clowns short of a circus now, you should hear me by the time I reach her place. "That $@#$%% intersection at I-27 was backed up for miles. You'd think by all the $@#$%% traffic congestion in the area, the theme parks were offering free admission and close encounters with wildlife which would be safer than traveling on I-4." As I was sandwiched among the wildebeests in that area a couple of Saturdays ago, I noticed that a vehicle was weaving from lane to lane. What the $@#$%% is wrong with t hat guy? I muttered to myself. How am I supposed to act civil when I'm irting with death every time I make the trek across the state? And now Gov. Scott nally comes around to getting on board mass transit; a high-speed rail is proposed that would link Tampa and Orlando. Better late than never, I guess. Transit opponents need not worry. If ridership is at, maybe the trains can be put to good use transporting accident victims to the hospitals or the morgues. Yeah, I know. I'm cynical as well as crotchety. And as I write, my cell phone is ringing again. Ain't answering it. In fact, in this day and age, with all the concerns about scams and identity theft, I think that making cold calls to individuals is not a good strategy for acquiring customers especially to those of us who are "getting older, losing my hair," to quote Paul McCartney singing the Beatles' "When I'm 64." Shoo, you darn earworms. I doubt Sir McCartney gets calls from solicitors. Bet he doesn't have to run with wildebeests, either. Civility is overrated. Here's what also makes me uncivil: New and improved products, such as razor blades. Why does corporate America keep trying to build a better mousetrap? Makes me uncivil enough to lacerate myself every time I shave. Computers. Would love to buy one that has all the programs I need installed. Buying a new laptop these days is like buying a car without wheels. And I hope it will be easier to sign up for Medicare than installing software. Endless strings of commercials between television programs especially movies. I'd rather shave than listen to them. Lobbies or waiting rooms in some medical and other professional of ces. The magazines and other reading material in these places are often ancient. I get uncivil and crotchety if I have to watch daytime television or stare at a terrarium or a framed college degree while I'm waiting for somebody to poke or probe me. Such moments invite earworms, too. So I bring my own magazines, sometimes National Geographics, and leave them for others once I'm summoned to the world beyond the waiting rooms. Yeah, I know, if I'd buy something more sophisticated than a ip phone to play with, I'd have something to do and be less prone to suffering from earworms. Once I'm through battling the Medusas of Medicare, this crotchety, uncivil cheapskate might warm up to the idea of buying a magic box, aka a smartphone. When I’m 65. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. He can be reached at 727397-5563, ext. 330, or by an email at tgermond@ TBNweekly.com. Tom Germond In the 1964 musical "Fiddler on the Roof," the main character, Tevye, told his village friends what he (a milkman) would do "If I were a rich man." Many of us have toyed with that fantasy; then we've gone back to the reality of our bank accounts. Lately I've been thinking of what I might do if, in a miracle, I'd be granted (A) unlimited funds to spend as I chose to, and (B) another hundred years to live. After studying recent predictions on how the world is going, I came up with a few ideas on how I might wisely use my vast wealth. (1) My rst thought would involve real estate. I would buy coastal properties and acreage at least five miles inland and 60 feet above sea level. That move should protect me from the ooding that will almost certainly occur during the next century or so, especially in Florida. I have wondered if and when coastline homeowners from Pensacola to Miami to Jacksonville will be trapped in a sudden sellers' market. Perhaps that trend has already begun. I'd also invest in properties situated safely distant from any river, creek, pond or lake. Weather experts have said the frog-strangling deluges of recent years may continue to descend on waterways and, in a few short hours, wash away homes, businesses and entire towns. (2) However, I would plow billions of my dollars into water its preservation, production, puri cation and desalination. Our nation's water resources are already in danger from population growth, droughts, pollution, and Flint, Michigan, style mismanagement. As I write this, other countries notably Iran and South Africa are in big trouble because of existing or oncoming water shortages. The scientists and nanciers who can solve humankind's water problems will be swimming in unimaginable wealth. (3) What will it take to reduce the number of gun-related deaths in the USA, especially in our schools and colleges? Ban all weapons? Tighten the laws of gun use and purchase? Very unlikely. The gun lobby already controls a large percentage of lawmakers in Washington and state capitals. That is not likely to change in years to come. So, what can we do? One possibility (although a sad one): make body armor a standard item of clothing, especially for school children, who seem to be a favorite target of demented shooters. Bullet-resistant vests will not be an easy item to sell to the public, but such garments can substantially reduce the target zones presented by potential victims. As body armor research and development grow, investors in this commercial area will seldom end up collecting welfare. (4) I'm not sure if or when the USA will achieve just and manageable immigration policies. Today immigration especially involving refugees trying to escape the hellholes in their home countries has become a political football that will not shrink in size soon. One thing seems likely: America is not going to slam our doors and completely shut out people who want to come here to live. If you or I don't like the sound of foreign languages in our midst, we'd better not venture past our front doors. So, let's learn to deal with it. As the Stoics like to say, "Id est quod id est." It is what it is. If I had unlimited dollars to spend as I saw t, I would establish a thousand language centers throughout our land. Their purpose would be to teach spoken and written English to every newcomer. I'd also have classes to teach any of 50 foreign languages and dialects to those of us who grow up speaking English. Would all of this completely halt the con ict, misunderstanding and mistrust that now dominate immigration debate? Probably not. But it would help. And from the sound of things, we're going to need all the help we can get. Real estate, water, bullet-proof vests and language training. I grant you, that's not a very impressive or creative list of suggestions on how to nancially cope with the tsunami of problems coming our way in the next century or so. But as the 4-foot-tall man said when as he married the 8-foot tall woman, "You've got to start somewhere."

I don't know what the Council is thinking but accessibility to their of ces by the citizens has been ignored. I am handicapped and on several occasions have had to go to City Hall on personal business. Parking for anyone is a breeze especially the handicapped. Just where is anyone, especially the handicapped, supposed to park to get to our elected of cials? This supposed savings of $50,000 per year is nothing but pocket change to Clearwater's budget. Have they considered the increased cost of moving the meeting to the library? Here again, what about handicapped access? And will the library be open on meeting days, which will make parking even worse. For years now there has been talk of replacing City Hall with a commercial building. For what? First it was the building was 50 years old and needed replacement. I guess more than half the homes in Clearwater need to be torn down because they are over 50 years old. To me the City Hall and its location are ideal. To me the Hall is the best looking building in downtown Clearwater and does not need replacement. If Council members don't like the building then don't run for re-election. John Blechschmidt ClearwaterTides’ closing ruf es snowbird’s feathers Editor: With respect to the closing of the Tides golf course: The reasons given are a bunch of nonsense. I am a December-March snowbird in Madeira Beach and play at the Tides at least twice a week with 8-16 friends. We usually have to wait for even larger groups (up to 80 players) to nish their outing before we can start. There never seem to be any open tee times. In fact the Tides is noted for being one of the more crowded courses in the area. The claim that there is "no support from the gol ng community" is simply not true. The new carts last year were much appreciated, but they aren't of much use if there is no golf course. I hope the responsible Seminole of cials will take a close look at what the truth is behind the closing. Barry Thomas Athens, OhioProud of TrumpRe: “A madman wielding a wrecking ball,” Bob Driver’s column, June 28 Editor: Really? Your rst four paragraphs I agree with, 100 percent. What I think is nonsense and silly, you actually made me laugh, with your opinion on midterms predicting the survival of our political system! LOL Bob, and to go on like you did and to end your bit with the children crying and the vision they hold on each of us, and it would Bob, if it were all true. Do you not realize each day felons of us citizens are arrested for violations and their children pulled? Sadly, most those bringing the children are doing so to advance their chances. You don't believe in securing our boarder; I do. And plenty of the Trump supporters do. I am so proud of Trump and what he is doing. Facts are facts and this president will be considered one of the best ever perhaps. Be negative and knock the president. That's not a band wagon I care to show my children, grand kids. To me Bob, that's really sad and not very American! Bob Davis ClearwaterBicyclists should use paths on bridge’s roadway Editor: I have written before about picking up glass on the Belleair Beach Causeway walkway, and now I have to write about me having to be picked up off of the walkway. I was taking my morning walk recently about 7:30 on a Sunday and heading back down toward the beach when a man walking towards me moved over to my side of the walkway. As I moved to my left to let him pass, I was slammed in the back of my leg by a bicyclist. Neither the man walking toward me nor the man on the bike ever said a word to warn me although after the fact the walking man said he should have told me he was coming. The bike and bicyclist both landed on me and left his tire tracks on the back of my leg. After both men pulled me up and took off, I called my husband to come pick me up. I ended up having to get X-rays and had a severe sprain of the ankle. I have always tried to be courteous of bicyclists on the road and don't understand two things. #1. Why was he riding on the walkway when there is a marked bicycle path on the roadway? #2. Why didn't he warn me he was coming at a fast speed behind me? This unfortunate accident hasn't stopped me from walking the causeway but I'm enjoying the beautiful scenery less due to looking behind me more. Patsy Sullivan Indian Rocks BeachCharity, respect for laws begins at homeEditor: As the heat rises in political rhetoric about the borders, such as separated families, an image without truth clouds the hearts and minds of the nation's conversation. What is the truth? Parental irresponsibility, children being used as pawns and human traf cking come to mind. We are a nation of laws. Another truth focuses upon the homelessness and hunger our own American children are experiencing. In 2014, NBC News reported that one in 30 American children or about 2.5 million are homeless. Charity and respect for our laws both begin at the home. Let us not forget it. Sheila Grif n ClearwaterTheft victim heartbrokenTo the person who stole my raccoon statue: You entered a senior citizen park. I am an old senior citizen. I do not know how long I will live. But you stole my raccoon statue that is over 25 years old, a special gift from my late husband. It is not worth a lot of money but it is worth a lot in my heart. I am heartbroken that you stole it.

Community 11A Leader, July 12, 2018 School NewsPinellas Education Foundation names leaderLARGO The Pinellas Education Foundation recently announced that Doug Bishop, CEO of Bouchard Insurance, has been appointed chairman of the Pinellas Education Foundation for a two-year term as of July 1. Bishop's leadership and creative capabilities have proven valuable in branding Bouchard Insurance as the premier insurance agency in the Southeast. A Pinellas County native, Bishop graduated from Tarpon Springs High School in 1989. He joined Bouchard in 1997 as a Commercial Lines sales executive after graduating from Florida State University. Before becoming CEO, he held several key positions in the organization: Workers' Compensation Division manager, Sarasota Division manager, and vice president of Sales. He is the third CEO for Bouchard Insurance since its inception in 1948. Bishop has been a member of the Pinellas Education Foundation's Board of Directors since 2013. He has served in leadership roles on the Board including treasurer and vice chair. Bishop replaces Gary Regoli, president of Achieva Credit Union, who will remain on the Board of Directors.Learn about judicial candidates at SPC forumCLEARWATER The Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College will help voters get to know candidates for seats on the 6th Judicial Circuit bench at a candidate forum on July 25. The forum, co-sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times, will be from 6-8:15 p.m. at the Clearwater campus of SPC, 2465 Drew St., Clearwater. Advance registration is requested at www.solutions. spcollege.edu/events/judicial-candidates-forum-2. Judicial races are among the least-noticed aspects of the primary election campaign, yet the outcomes of those races are among the most important. The obscurity occurs because the Judicial Canon imposes strict limits on the way candidates can raise campaign funds and what they can say on the campaign trail. There are 11 candidates seeking one of the ve contested seats on the 6th Circuit bench, which serves Pinellas and Pasco counties. Other incumbent judges whose terms expire this year are unopposed and thus automatically re-elected. Circuit Court judges serve six-year terms with no term limits. To qualify, candidates must be a member of the Florida Bar and have lived in Florida for at least ve years. By law, judicial races are non-partisan, to prevent politics from tainting the impartiality of the courts. So, candidates bear no party labels, and they are forbidden to make predictions or promises about issues that could arise once they are on the bench. A panel led by retired Judge Irene Sullivan and St. Petersburg College Dean Susan Demers will question the candidates, within the limitations cited above. The forum will be split into two parts: Groups 4 and 9 comprised of ve candidates will be questioned from 6 to 7:10 p.m., and Groups 36, 40 and 45 comprised of six candidates from 7:15-8:10 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend to learn more about the background and quali cations of those seeking to sit on the Circuit Court bench. Register at www.solutions.spcollege.edu/events/judicialcandidates-forum-2.USF designated as ‘preeminent’ universityTAMPA The University of South Florida can of cially stand side by side with the University of Florida and Florida State University as the best universities in the state. The Florida Board of Governors voted unanimously June 28 to formally designate USF as a "Preeminent State Research University," recognizing the institution's high performance and strong trajectory toward national excellence. Preeminence represents the culmination of USF's many years of careful strategic planning, focused allocation of resources and determination of thousands of students, faculty and staff, according to a press release. The designation comes with millions of dollars in additional funding, carries prestige that will bene t USF in many key areas, including new student and faculty recruitment, and will enhance the economic development of the Tampa Bay region. The Florida Preeminence program, written into state law in 2013, rewards high-achieving universities based on 12 metrics, including graduation rates, student retention rates, research expenditures and the number of patents awarded. To earn preeminence, a university must meet or exceed at least 11 of the 12 benchmarks. Health & Fitness News Faith & Family NewsLargo apartment complex to rst in county to earn breastfeeding awardLARGO The Waterchase Apartments in Largo is the rst apartment complex in Pinellas County to earn the Bronze Level Breastfeeding Friendly Employer award. The Florida Breastfeeding Coalition, a chapter of the United States Breastfeeding Committee, recognized the apartment complex for having a breastfeeding policy that provides employees a private lactation room, exibility in their schedules to allow for pumping breaks, resources and help, if needed. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County assisted the complex by providing education and support through the Florida Healthy Babies Initiative, a collaborative statewide project that focuses on health equity when it comes to breastfeeding, safe sleep and improved access to resources. Kathleen Smith, Waterchase community manager and mother of two, wanted to create a friendly environment for other employees in a dedicated area at the complex. "Being a new mom, and having to leave your newborn to come back to work is so very stressful. My hope is, by creating a private, comfortable environment for employees to pump breastmilk when they need to, it will be one less thing for them to worry about," said Smith. Chelsi Wiley, Waterchase employee and new mom to a son born on July 2, was the key motivation behind the apartment complex's new policy. Wiley is happy to work for a company that supports breastfeeding moms and hopes the days of hiding in a public restroom or breakroom to breastfeed or pump are over. "I hope that this will push more employers to think about their soonto-be mothers and implement a better and more comfortable policy for breastfeeding moms," said Wiley. Thanks to a collaboration with DOH-Pinellas, the Tampa Bay Breastfeeding Task Force-Pinellas Chapter and the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County, the FHB Initiative in Pinellas has helped nine employers receive designation as a "Breastfeeding Friendly Employer" including seven new child care centers in Pinellas.

12A Community Leader, July 12, 2018 By MARK SCHANTZTBN CorrespondentTREASURE ISLAND Each year countless visitors ock to Treasure Island to enjoy miles of beautiful beaches, trendy bars, popular restaurants, shops catering to tourists and variety of motels and hotels. Few think of the hearty settlers, pirates, fishermen, explorers and land developers who braved sti ing heat without air conditioning, hordes of mosquitoes and the potential for disease to carve a beach city from this barrier island of 840 acres in the early and mid-1900s. Many visitors and residents do not realize the city got its name as a result of a clever marketing hoax concocted by a friend of its first hotelier. Many do not know the city might never have been incorporated if it were not for the need to acquire funding to build the Treasure Island Causeway Bridge or that its main popular beach area is actually owned by St. Petersburg. The Treasure Island Historical Society is working to change all that, pay homage to its early settlers and let people explore its adventure- lled past. Historical Society President Carol Coward said the society hopes to raise enough funds to open a storefront museum, where artifacts, hundreds of photos, and numerous newspaper clippings can be displayed. She added they also want to recognize those who have had a signi cant role in helping the city grow and prosper. The latest version of the Historical Society, formed in May 2005, currently has its memorabilia in storage, with some photos on display in various tourist shops around the city. The society has also produced DVDs containing interviews with residents whose families lived on the island for generations. Coward said a few years ago the Historical Society was offered a cottage to set up an exhibition hall but didn't have the funds or location to relocate the building. So, they had to let the opportunity slip through their ngers. The city has not asked the Historical Society if it is willing to be part of a proposed new City Hall municipal complex. She said she understands municipal facilities are cramped for space and the city is busy with other issues. She noted if given a chance there is a lot of history to tell and display. For example, few know that prior to becoming a city in 1955, the barrier island now known as Treasure Island was comprised of four separate incorporated towns; Sunset Beach, Boca Ciega, Treasure Island and Sunshine Beach. Before developers were on the scene, early settlers of the barrier islands were shermen and turtle hunters, who lived in shacks or on boats. The only way to get to the island was by boat. According to historical society records one of the earliest settlers was a man named Tom Sawyer, a sherman who homesteaded in the Sunset Beach-Boca Ciega area. The first Treasure Island land owner was Thomas F. Pierce, who purchased Treasure Island from the state for $1.25 per acre in 1908. Later, real estate developer Walter Fuller purchased Treasure Island for $800 and formed a development company. In her book called "The Treasure Island Story," Bonnie L. Williams, former Historical Society president and longtime former city clerk, said the town got its name as a result of a hotel guest looking to attract investors to the area. In 1915, Whitey Harrell built the city's first hotel called Coney Island, on the east side of Gulf Boulevard, then called Surf Avenue and 100 Street. It was three stories high and could accommodate 25 guests, with a beach bathhouse across the street. In 1918, one of Harrell's guests, real estate developer Bill McAdoo, sought to purchase a large piece of property on what is now known as St. Pete Beach. To attract interest of investors, he and a few friends concocted a hoax and announced they dug up a treasure chest near the Coney Island hotel; publicity about the treasure nd spread and the area became known as "that Treasure Island." Coward said, in addition, few people realize that the beach access area at 112th and Gulf Boulevard actually belongs to the city of St. Petersburg. It was as part of a land swap deal to build the Causeway Bridge, which was eventually constructed in 1939. In 1937, the city of Treasure Island had to be formed to receive federal funding to build the bridge from St. Petersburg to Treasure Island. In summer of 1938, 20 residents approved a city bond issue referendum to pay for the 1.8-mile bridge which cost a little more than $1 million. It wasn't until several years later, on May 3, 1955, the towns of Sunset Beach, Sunshine Beach and Boca Ciega agreed to merge into the city of Treasure Island. "They decided to form onto one city to provide all the services that could support the area's growth," Coward said. According to Williams' book, the city grew during the 1940s. Gulf Boulevard was a two-lane brick road. "Fishing was good and mosquitoes were bad," Williams noted. "Mosquitoes were so bad that door and window screens were painted with motor oil and kerosene." In 1952, Williams' book recalls, the city hired its rst police chief, Eugene Marshall, to patrol a town with 34 residents, a bottle club, one motel and a few bars. Until 1955, he was a police force of one, with no radio system or of cers to back him up. If someone had an emergency they would call the chief's home and give a message to his wife. She would call a service station and clubs along the beach to turn on their lights, as signal for Marshall to go home and get a message from his wife. Williams wrote the system worked so well the maximum response time was 10 minutes. By 1955, the police department had eight officers, two police cruisers and a radio dispatch system. The fire department was also established at that time with volunteers who paid $1 a month. They returned the dollar to the city to pay for insurance. Coward said the Historical Society has a few chairs from the old Penguin Restaurant, which was owned by the city's rst female commissioner, Clara Girard, who was elected in 1964. The restaurant, which was a popular fine dining establishment, was destroyed during a storm. Coward said someday the chairs will be part of an exhibit of memorabilia and photographs. She said Treasure Island's history has been one that is more "of a residential than tourist town, with every beach city being unique."Group seeks home for historyHistorical Society raising funds in bid to open museum, exhibit city’s story TREASURE ISLAND Hot air temperatures for a couple of weeks now have warmed our inshore waters to a balmy 85 degrees, and mid-day temperatures on the shallow ats can be close to 90 degrees. These warm temperatures can make for some pretty tough shing. Targeting deep water flats and structure in and around the passes will definitely put you in position to catch more fish. Trout and mackerel can be found just inside the passes hanging on grass edges that have good concentrations of bait. Productive areas can often be located by the presence of diving pelicans and dipping terns, newly hatched sardine and thread n fry is the cause for all the commotion. Most of this bait is too small to be castnetted and used for bait. Your better option would be the use of small arti cial lures, soft plastic or buck tail jigs in white or silver should do the trick. The many spoils islands that dot the Intracoastal Waterway are excellent places to find redfish and trout year-round but are especially good when the water gets as warm as it is. Their close proximity to deep water provides good current ow with water that might be a degree or two colder. Deep bridges with good current are good places to find snook, gag grouper, black drum and flounder. Targeting the rst couple of hours of the tide change with a variety of baits can be very productive. The snook and grouper love big pin sh and grunts, be sure to drop them down on some heavy tackle at least 50-pound test with an even heavier leader. For the ounder try fishing a small grunt or pilchard on a 1ounce knocker rig. Offshore the gag grouper bite has been slow overall especially in the shallower depths. Those able to get out deeper stand a better chance. Anglers shing in 80 to 110 feet of water have been able to do reasonably well with both red and gag grouper. The mangrove snapper bite remains good in just about any depth with the average size of sh increasing the deeper you go. A chumming combination of fresh cut scaled sardines and frozen chum blocks will entice the sh to come up off the bottom where the larger fish can be targeted. Make sure to bring a couple of chum blocks; they tend to burn up quickly with the warm water temperatures. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail. com.

Outdoor NewsFWC to support lion sh exhibitsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has announced the opening of a Lion sh Educational Exhibit Program that offers public facilities the opportunity to apply for nancial assistance in creating educational exhibit displays about the lion sh invasion. The goal of the program is to increase awareness and ensure consistent, accurate messaging. Facilities with existing lion sh educational exhibits or an interest in creating one are encouraged to apply.

Applications will be accepted until March 29. Decals support manatees, sea turtlesFlorida's waters and beaches are not only popular with people, but are also key habitats for manatees and sea turtles. More of these iconic species live here than in any other state. The manatee and sea turtle decals, created by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, are a fun way for people to support the research, rescue and management efforts that conserve these species. Every July, the commission introduces new manatee and sea turtle decals that are available with a $5 donation. The waterproof decals are designed to look good on a vehicle's bumper or the side of a boat. Get them when registering or re-registering a vehicle or boat at local tax collector's of ces across the state. Over 6,000 manatees swim in the state's coastal waters, rivers and freshwater springs, and about 20,000 sea turtles nest each year on Florida's Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches. The decals help fund manatee and sea turtle conservation efforts. For example, when someone calls the FWC's Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) to report an injured, entangled or sick manatee or sea turtle, FWC staff works with partners to respond and rescue the animal.

Entertainment 3B Leader, July 12, 2018 By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO – It’s been 10 weeks since Eight O’Clock Theatre announced it would be auditioning for its summer production of “Spring Awakening.” During that time, Jason Tucker, the show’s director and choreographer; and Justin Havard, music director, have planned, practiced and prepared with the cast and crew, working tirelessly to bring this rock musical to the stage. “Spring Awakening” will run July 13-22 at Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Performances will be Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $28.50 for adults, $13.50 for students age 22 and younger. Call 727-587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. According to Sarah Dawson Roehm, public relations director at the theater, the audition turnout surprised everyone. “We believe that this show is a huge step for our local community, as evidenced by the 87 people that showed up to auditions,” she said. “This show is obviously something that the young people in our area are quite passionate about.” The winner of eight Tony Awards – including Best Musical – as well as a Grammy Award, “Spring Awakening” explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. The show features music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. It is based on the 1891 German play “Spring Awakening” by Frank Wedekind. The landmark musical is a fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll. Set against the backdrop of late-19th century Germany when adults held all the cards, the play’s characters navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety in a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion. This show contains strong adult language, sexual content and situations, and references to suicide and death. Because of the content, Roehm believes it is important that Eight O’Clock Theatre expand its reach. “A lot of our regular audience may be wary of it because of the topics and content, so we really want to open up to a whole new demographic,” she said. The audition notice indicated that Eight O’Clock Theatre was thinking outside the box with this summer production. Tucker and Havard advertised that they were “looking for a diverse group of smart, energetic, and adventurous young people to ll these roles.” Havard has a special appreciation for “Spring Awakening.” “I saw it on Broadway with the original cast in 2007, and I remember it affecting me deeply,” the music director said. “I didn’t know the show going in, and I was stunned by how vividly it brought back memories of my own adolescence: the confusion, the frustration, the shame, and the excitement.” Havard explained how audiences relate to the characters in the show. “I think it can be such a lonely time for anyone, because you just don’t realize how universal all these feelings are,” he said. “The fear that you’re a freak, or that you’re not supposed to feel these things, and just not knowing what the heck is going on with your body. When you add repression into the mix, it just makes it so much worse, which is shown really clearly in the play.” According to Havard, “Spring Awakening” is an important show for any theater at any time because of its message. “We as adults often dismiss teenagers as overly emotional and ‘angsty,’ but we forget how dif cult that transition can be for them,” he explained. “They are neither children nor adults, and they are desperately looking for someone to show them the way, and to be taken seriously. The play shows how harmful it can be when these pleas go unanswered, or worse, when they are dismissed as something shameful.” For Havard, one of the highlights of bringing this show to the stage has been working with Duncan Sheik’s folk-rock score. “The rst time the girls sang the group version of ‘Mama Who Bore Me,’ we all just burst into cheers afterwards,” Havard said. “It’s such a cool song with lots of interesting harmony, but the rst time made us realize what a special cast this is.” Another highlight of this production: seeing it actualized. “Watching Jason Tucker create the staging for the show has been inspiring,” he said. “I’ve seen many different productions of this musical, so I didn’t necessarily expect to see a lot of new things during the process, and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Jason is such a creative storyteller, and his staging is so fresh and thought-provoking.” Christina Capehart serves as assistant director of “Spring Awakening.” Like Havard, Capehart saw the original cast of “Spring Awakening” in New York. “I immediately fell deeply in love with the story that was being told in such a visually interesting and new style,” she said. “It was such an eye-opening experience about what theater could be.” Capehart said she had never seen anything like it. “Since then, I have always wanted to be a part of a production that creates an energizing impact on the audience the way seeing ‘Spring Awakening’ did for me.” Capehart has appeared in many productions at Eight O’Clock Theatre, but this show marks her rst experience on the creative side of a production. “Getting the opportunity to work alongside Jason Tucker has been tremendously educational,” she said. “I could not have asked for a more tenured or skillful mentor. Being able to watch the relationships in the cast has been one of the most enjoyable experiences.” According to Capehart, Eight O’Clock has one of the very best facilities around as well as an extremely capable staff. As such, EOT is especially qualified to present productions such as “Spring Awakening” in a way that preserves the original integrity of the show. “’Spring Awakening’ will expose our audiences to the possibility of theater and allow them to have an authentic experience in a way they might not have before,” Capehart explained. “It is absolutely a daring move that I believe our audiences will nd rewarding.” The production’s subject matter has brought cast and crew closer together. “The production deals with some very heavy topics and our cast has become so supportive and intrinsic understanding of one another,” Capehart said. “It creates magic on stage – it’s beautiful. Truly this production feels like kismet on all sides. It is really something spectacular.” The director of the production applauds Eight O’Clock Theatre for taking on a show like “Spring Awakening.” “EOT has always done a good job of mixing the modern with the classic and the profound with the silly, so it’s not surprising,” Tucker explained. “But this is a particular moment in our culture when ‘Spring Awakening’s” story of repression, forced ignorance, and the struggle to connect make it incredibly relevant.” Tucker said he believes that audiences who see the show at Central Park Performing Arts Center in Largo will love these characters and be thrilled with the actors portraying them. For Tucker, the most exciting thing about creating this production was working with what he describes as a “truly special group of 15 young, local performers.” Cast members range in age from 16 to 20, with one 29-year-old thrown in for good measure. “To a person, they are smart, thoughtful, engaged, and powerful,” Tucker said. “I looked forward to every rehearsal because I knew I was about to create with these talented actors. I hope someday I’m lucky enough to get a cast like this again – but I doubt it …” “Spring Awakening” opens Friday, July 13, 8 p.m., at Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. The show runs through July 22, giving audiences a limited number of opportunities to experience Eight O’Clock Theatre’s production.
