City donates $500 to Little League By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Continuing in its efforts to support youth sports organizations involving Seminole residents, the City Council passed a motion June 5 to donate $500 to Cross Bayou Little League, 10150 98th St. Councilor Leslie Waters said it was her understanding that the league has about 400 players and about half were from the city of Seminole, east of Seminole Boulevard. Its completely discretionary, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. There are funds available if thats the Councils desire. At one point, the county had a grant program available that groups like this were able to use. Councilor John Counts asked how much the city donates to Seminole Little League each year. We dont donate specifically to Seminole Little League, said Edmunds, but we donate $5,000 to (Seminole Youth Athletic Association). SYAA, located at 12100 90th Ave., is home to Seminole Little League, a youth soccer program and the Seminole Chiefs youth football program. In other action: Sixteen-year fire department veteran Mike Murray was promoted to lieutenant. Councilor Thomas Barnhorn was named the citys voting delegate for the upcoming Florida League of Cities convention. The Pinellas Seminole Womens Club donated $1,000 to the city library trust fund. Councilors passed a motion to replace the citys pool car with a new model. A 2003 Ford Explorer will be replaced by a 2012 Ford Focus at the state bid price of $13,500.

Several races had no competition. Candidates running unopposed will not appear on the November ballot.Constitutional officesThree of five races for a constitutional office have unopposed candidates. Clerk of the Court Ken Burke will keep his job, as will Property Appraiser Pam Dubov and Tax Collector Diane Nelson. For the office of Supervisor of Elections, Clark, a Republican, will face no-party-affiliation candidate Jack Killingsworth, who challenged Clark in 2008. Clark won that election with 61 percent of the vote. Three candidates qualified to run against Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who will square off against fellow Republican Everett Rice in the primary in August. Democrat Scott Swope also qualified to run in November, as did write-in candidate Greg Pound. Gualtieri and Rice are two of the 11 candidates who qualified by petition. Rice remains the big spender thus far in Pinellas County politics, followed by Gualtieri. According to a report on the Supervisor of Elections website, as of June 8, Rice had spent $69,885 of more than $280,000 in campaign contributions. Gualtieri has reportedly spent $40,309 of his nearly $192,000 in contributions.Commission racesOne of four races for Pinellas County Commissioner was decided June 8. Republican Karen Seel, who has served on the commission since 1999, is running unopposed and will continue representing the citizens of District 5 for another term. Democrat Janet Long qualified to run against Republican and incumbent Neil Brickfield for the at-large District 1 seat on the commission. Brickfield, a former Safety Harbor City Commissioner, was first-elected to the county commission in 2008. Long served two terms in the Florida House of Representatives before being defeated during a re-election bid in 2010. She is a former Seminole City Council member.

Collections from April totaled $3.14 million, an 8 percent increase from 2011 and the highest April amount since the tax collectors office started collecting the tax in 1990. Collections from March also set a record. Coming off a record-breaking March, its great news for Pinellas County that our numbers continue to climb Nelson said. Its certainly a sign that our local tourism industry is having a strong year so far. The tourist development tax is a 5 percent tax known as the bed tax required by Florida law on accommodations rented for six months or less. The TD tax produces close to $25 million each year in Pinellas County, used mainly for tourism marketing by the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. The Tax Collectors Office implemented an online payment system for TD taxpayers in 2010, and now more than 70 percent of TD collections are processed online. For more information about tourist development taxes, visit taxcollect.com or contact the tax collectors office at 464-5007.PSTA sets May ridership recordST. PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority continues to set all-time ridership records. Early figures for May indicate that 1,187,231 rides were taken last month, which is a jump of more than 46,000 rides over May 2011. Not only is this the highest ridership ever for the month of May, but its also the second highest monthly total ever for PSTA second only to March 2012, said PSTA Spokesperson Bob Lasher. PSTA has reported ridership records for six consecutive months. Agency leaders say transit ridership typically jumps when fuel prices spike and, as in past years, theyre seeing that when prices come down, riders continue using PSTA. Its just a matter of people finally taking that first ride, Lasher said. Once they learn how easy, inexpensive and stress free it is to ride, they stick with us. Folding bikes are now permitted on board all PSTA buses. PSTAs record ridership is also increasing demand for the agencys Bikes on Buses program, where riders use bus mounted bike racks to travel with their bicycles. Because of the increased demand for rack space, PSTA leaders are encouraging passengers to bring folding bicycles on board buses even if the front bike racks are empty. Since folding bikes dont take up much room, officials are asking riders to bring folding bikes on board to save the front bike-rack space for standard bikes. On average, PSTA now carries more than a thousand bikes a day. To learn how to ride with your bike or to plan a trip on PSTA, visit the agency website at www.PSTA.net or call the PSTA InfoLine at 5401900.Elections supervisor halts verification processCLEARWATER Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced she has halted processing the list of potential noncitizen voters distributed to Supervisors of Elections by the Division of Elections. The accuracy of the voter registration database is of the utmost importance, Clark said, and we will continue our efforts to ensure the information is current. However, we will not use unreliable data. Clark and other elections supervisors questioned not only the accuracy of the information, but also the timing after learning that the state had the list of voters more than a year prior to distributing it.Certificate sale collects 99 percent of delinquent taxesCLEARWATER Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson reported that the tax certificate sale on June 1 collected 99.7 percent of delinquent real estate taxes from 2011. With 15,343 available tax certificates totaling $36.5 million, bidders purchased 15,041 certificates for a total of $36.4 million. The tax certificate sale is an annual online auction through which bidders purchase a delinquent taxpayers debt in exchange for an annual interest rate, ensuring the majority of unpaid property taxes are collected and distributed. The average interest rate for this years sale was 0.78 percent, down from 2.07 percent last year. The 302 unsold certificates, totaling $108,088, were issued to Pinellas County with an interest rate of 18 percent. Once a tax certificate is issued on a property, the certificate becomes an enforceable first lien. A certificate may be redeemed by paying the delinquent taxes plus accrued interest and fees either through the tax collectors website, taxcollect.com, or at any tax collector office. For more information regarding certificate redemption or other tax collector services, visit taxcollect.com or call 464-7777 to speak to a customer service representative.Updated precincts, districts available onlineCLEARWATER Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced that all new district and precinct information is uploaded into the voter database to allow voters to look up their precinct, district and polling place information online. Now that the redistricting process is complete and the database is updated, Clark said, the Find Your Precinct feature on our website allows a voter to enter a residence street name and follow the prompts to find the correct precinct. Once the correct precinct is located, the voter can view the voting districts and polling place. The Voter Look-up feature is also operational, which provides voters with updated information about their registration, ballot requests and voter history. This feature is available by selecting the Check Your Registration Status link on the home page. Precinct and district information also will be included on voter information cards, which will be mailed to all 600,000 registered voters in June. The cards will be enclosed in red-white-and-blue mailers from the Supervisor of Elections. The new precinct map, along with new congressional, state Senate and state House district maps are posted online at www.votepinellas.com by selecting Maps/District Maps. For more information, call 464-VOTE (8683) or visit www.votepinel las.com.Clerk of the Court to rename call centerCLEARWATER Pinellas County Clerks Office will rename the Clerks Call Center to the Clerks Customer Information Center to better reflect the services provided by the department, announced Ken Burke, clerk of the circuit court. The name change is effective June 30. Burke pointed out a common frustration that many people experience when calling any customer help line comes from being put on hold or transferred to multiple people. Employees in the department provide a tremendous amount of assistance to our Pinellas County citizens, said Burke. Their vast knowledge about all the departments in the Clerks Office greatly reduces the need for callers to be transferred to other departments. The people who work in the Clerks Customer Information Center are skilled in the use of the offices various software systems and internal and external websites enabling them to quickly locate and provide answers to citizens, according to Burke.

Commissioners voted 5-1 to give preliminary approval of the request on June 5. Commission Vice Chairman Ken Welch voted no. Commission Chair John Morroni was absent. Matt Gasper, the organizations president, made a lastminute request of the commission, saying the group was working with Ruth Eckerd Hall on the road and needs to act quickly for a chance to book the Counting Crows for the Sept. 15 event. Wed like to have beer and wine in September and April, Gaspar said. But that requires a waiver from the commission. He said comparable events have beer and wine, and organizers believe the public will expect it. Mark Woodard said staff had yet to receive a formal application for an event that organizers estimate will draw between 3,000 and 5,000 people. Weve not had an event of that magnitude at the park, he said. Woodard also said the September event coincides with the shore bird nesting season. But the largest issue is the beer and wine and the large number of expected attendance, he said. He said past events in the park that included beer and wine had been of a much smaller scale. Gasper pointed out that the September event was scheduled on the next to the last day of nesting season and said the organization would post watchers. He also said the event was planned to happen in the parade area in from of the fort. Theres no nesting there, he said. Woodard asked if the Friends planned to sell admission and asked if it would be necessary to cordon off a portion of the park. The county has no formal agreement with Friends of Fort De Soto, he said. He asked how the park would benefit from the proceeds. County Attorney Jim Bennett said the commissioner could grant a waiver that would allow beer and wine to be served, but he said the Friends needed to first complete the application. We need the necessary documentation, he said. Welch said the commission needed input from the Park Board, which Gasper said he had not yet contacted. Im not ready to make a decision today, Welch said. Our concern is that people expect beer and wine. If theres none in September, people will think there will be none in April and it could affect attendance, Gasper said. Id like input from the Park Board, Woodard said, adding that there were questions that needed to be answered, such as how restrooms would be provided and security from the Sher-Commission turns down 2 of 3 millage rate increase requests By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners turned down two out of three requests for millage rate increases at its regular June 5 meeting. Commissioners showed no support for the Feather Sound Community Services Associations request for a millage increase from 0.5660 to 0.850 to make improvements. Commissioner Nancy Bostock said Feather Sound had a high level of reserves that the neighborhood group had been asked to spend before asking for more money or an increase in the millage rate. I see no reason for change, she said. Commissioner Neil Brickfield added that the group had enough money in reserves now to fund the sign it wants to build at the entrance and the canoe launch at the park and still have healthy reserves. He would like the voluntary board to come up with a master plan of expenses prior to granting any request for a hike in the millage rate. The Palm Harbor Recreation and Library District requested a millage rate increase from 0.4378 to the capped rate of 0.5 mills. Theyve been asking for this for a long time, said Commissioner Norm Roche. Weve been hearing from the agencies that want to do things, Bostock said. We havent heard from the people who use the services. Commissioner Susan Latvala said there was no doubt that the public has a need for more services, but raising millage rates to pay for a greater level of service should be across the board and bigger discussion for another day. We always say the public has said no new taxes, except the people who say they need more money, she said. Commissioner Ken Welch said there were signs of growing public support in recent years for a higher millage rate in the Palm Harbor area. He said the commission could set the millage rate to the maximum and reduce it later if there is a huge public outcry against it. Latvala said she could support going to the half mill. Commissioners discussed what it would mean for East Lake if they agreed to a request from the Pinellas County Library Cooperative for a rate increase from 0.4437 mills to 0.5 mills. Assistant County Administrator Mark Woodard said it should make it better because the library would receive more money than it does now about $21,000 more. As a contrast, Clearwater would receive about $86,000 of the $600,000 of additional money estimated to come in at the higher millage rate. Bostock said while East Lake would get more money, raising the millage rate would not help with the funding discrepancy, which is a chief complaint of East Lake Library officials. Negotiations are ongoing toward a new library agreement, which officials hope will ease some of the funding issues and allow more money to flow to the libraries in unincorporated Pinellas. Welch said rather than raise the millage, he would rather a more holistic approach be used. The Palm Harbor and East Lake libraries are cutting hours and services in an effort to balance the budget. Reserves are at a bare minimum and officials are worried about capital needs and emergencies. Unincorporated library officials point out that municipal libraries receive funding from their cities as well as the Library Cooperative. Unincorporated libraries receive a percentage of the Municipal Services Taxing Unit revenue and a small allocation from the Library Cooperative. The remaining money coming in to the Cooperative goes to municipalities for providing countywide services.Budget shortfallWoodard said latest projections show a budget shortfall of about $24.1 million for the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. Commissioners also discussed the need for one-time funding to pay for the completion of the Criminal Justice computer system and an expansion of the countys Wi-Fi capabilities. Woodard said the budget staff is currently working on the assumption that no one-time dollars will be available for projects in the coming year. Roche continued to express his concern about the outcome of a lawsuit on employees retirement contributions. He reminded commissioners that $9 million from savings from employees retirement costs had gone to balance the current years budget. He asked if the possibility of having to add retirement costs into the budget had been considered. Its not baked into the forecast, Woodard said.Friends of Fort De Soto Park plan 50th anniversary event in 2013iffs Office. Paul Cozzie, director of Parks & Conservation Resources, said staff needs the Friends of Fort De Soto to map out the areas where events will take place and then work through any issues. Gasper said to secure the entertainment, the Friends needed to know right away if the commission was favorable toward granting the waiver so beer and wine could be sold. We do these events in Palm Harbor, Commissioner Susan Latvala said. We just have to work through the issues. She said the commission had recently passed an ordinance specifically for events in Palm Harbor. She said the county has a staff person with the experience to work on the project. The park Friends hope to have the Counting Crows headline the event with three warmup bands. He said there would be no fireworks. He said food trucks would probably be called in for the September event with more upscale food in April. Commissioner Karen Seel asked if Gasper was asking for the special event permit fee to be waived. Gasper said Friends of Fort De Soto had considered asking that the parking fee be waived so advance tickets could be sold online. But they pay for parking at Rays games, he said. Seel said she could support allowing the beer and wine if the group could make sure the bird nesting areas were not disturbed. Gasper said the fee for the band was $75,000, which he said the group planned to recoup through ticket sales. Production was estimated to cost an additional $44,000. Ruth Eckerd Hall is on board, Gasper said. They have the experience to do this. Cozzie said events through Orange Blossom Catering had included alcohol in the past and some sporting events had served alcohol provided by event sponsors. But weve never had a large public event where alcohol was sold, he said. Welch said the size of the event requires it to need approval by the commission and he objected to the request coming at the last minute. Im not receptive to lastminute requests, he said. It was not an agenda item. Latvala said she could support approval for the beer and wine sales as long as Friends of Fort De Soto and Ruth Eckerd Hall could meet requirements for special events. Gasper said the organization would work with staff, but we dont want a list of 20 items that we get done now, then theres another list of 10 items until they become stumbling blocks. Seel and Latvala supported staffs ability to do what is needed to be done. Latvala asked if the Countys Centennial logo could be added to event materials. Commissioner Nancy Bostock expressed concern about the process and the last-minute nature of the request. Two weeks ago I got the email (from Gasper), she said. This was important but staff didnt bring it to the commission. We need to work on internal procedure.

CANDIDATES, from page 1ATime capsule provides memories for ex-teacher, students By BOB McCLURESEMINOLE Thirty years ago, the price for a gallon of gas was $1.30, the movie ET the Extra Terrestrial was a big hit and Ronald Reagan was president of the United States. Locally, a group of industrious Enhanced Learning Program students under the direction of teacher Hilda Rosselli at Seminole Middle School was putting together a time capsule, chronicling what they considered important at the time. After careful consideration, the small metal garbage can was loaded up with artifacts and buried about seven feet in front of the school, just outside the principals office. On June 7, it was unearthed and opened by Rosselli, who is now dean of the College of Education at Western Oregon University. What she and many of her past students found was a true statement of the time. Items included an Amtrak schedule, a car magazine featuring the years new models, a newspaper story on Skylab, a copy of the Seminole Middle School newsletter, an apartment guide, a University of Tampa tuition schedule, a 98-ROCK bumper sticker, a Tom Selleck photo, an Atari computer guide, baseball cards, a Rubiks Cube, an early Nintendo Gameboy and a newspaper article on sports medicine. The capsule was sealed in plastic and each item was encased in plastic. But it wasnt enough. The wear and tear of Mother Nature left everything soaked. We had everything wrapped but the water table won, Rosselli said. We were worried about the water table (in 1982). We worked so hard to preserve things. Other than being a little moist, the artifacts survived the threedecade burial in fairly good shape. Its fun to see the difference in prices today, Rosselli said. Thirty years ago, Rosselli taught five classes of ELP students and worked hard to throw interesting, educational experiences in their direction. Other projects, she said, included an archeological dig and the Photos by BOB McCLURELeft: Hilda Rosselli displays a copy of Modern Medicine magazine, one of many artifacts in a time capsule from 1982 at Seminole Middle School.

Attorney Jeff Hinder was one of the students from 30 years ago that decided to return and see what impact time had on the artifacts. To the best of my recollection, I contributed an Atari 2600 catalog and a math quiz, he said. Charles DiMarco, who was in the seventh grade three decades ago, and Nina Bond, who was also a student then, remembered writing poems and other works for the capsule. Meanwhile, a few feet away, a group of current SMS students under the direction of teacher Deborah Love, were planning to bury their own time capsule later in the day. It will be unearthed in 2042.

The ordinance would allow voters to approve proposed density and height changes to the downtown core area, as well as a stretch along Gulf Boulevard. The city plans to make a change from commercial general to mixed use in its Future Land Use Element of the Comprehensive Plan, which would allow for both residential and commercial redevelopment in both areas. In the downtown core, primarily along 107th Avenue, city leaders want to establish temporary lodging density at 60 units per acre and permanent residential density at a maximum of 24 units per acre. Along Gulf Boulevard, the standard would be temporary lodging density at a maximum of 60 units per acre and permanent residential density at a maximum of 15 units per acre. Commissioner Alan Bildz wondered why the measure has to be on the November ballot, instead of a later date. Why rush this? he asked. Why do we have to put this on the November ballot? Why cant we wait until March? I guarantee you, if we rush this through too fast, the voters will turn it down. City Manager Reid Silverboard explained that height and density aspects of the redevelopment plan are all voters will be asked to approve. Commissioner Phil Collins agreed with Silverboard, noting the process is long overdue. I dont think were rushing through this, Collins said. Weve been working on this for four or five years. Im with Reid and I think we need to go forward. We need to pull the trigger and get done with it. Attorney Heidi Horak, former chairwoman of the citys Planning and Zoning Board, said she believes the density level of 60 units per acre in the downtown core would not be sufficient for hotel development and the number needed to be somewhere around 72. She also believed a March election would be better for voter approval. It will be a detriment to have the election in November, she said, because a lot of people are going to come out to vote for president and are not going to know about the issue, and vote no. March would be better. Mayor Bob Minning said he favored having the measure on the November ballot. Id like to see a majority of Treasure Island residents have their say and have the maximum number of voters have their say, Minning said. City Attorney Maura Kiefer said asking residents to approve the height and density changes prior to the main ordinance being approved by the City Commission was akin to a straw ballot. She said she planned to get an opinion from State Attorney General Pam Bondi on the process. Basically, were asking (the voters) to vote on something in relationship to a potential ordinance, Kiefer said. In other action, commissioners: Moved forward on a request for the city to host the Fin-Tastic Voyage event Saturday, Aug. 4 on the beach behind Gulf Front Park, 10400 Gulf Blvd. The one-day event is part of the Landshark Fintastic Tour, which promotes beach cleanups and offers Ocean Conservancy information. The free event also will include beach games and paddleboard instruction, as well as Landshark and Margaritaville sampling stations. Moved forward on a resolution to award a $467,565 contract to Keystone Excavators for drainage improvements on Sunset Beach. The area targeted is Bayshore Boulevard from 77th Avenue north to 79th Avenue. Moved forward on a resolution to extend the citys interlocal agreement with the county that would allow the city to be reimbursed for certain expenses associated with a sand sharing project. Moved forward on a proposed ordinance that would expand the types of animals and other creatures prohibited from being on the city beaches. Were getting more than dogs on the beach, said Silverboard. The current ordinance only prohibits dogs. So when other people bring other undomesticated animals out on the beach, police cant do anything. Snakes and pigs have been among the animals residents have complained about. As a side amendment to the ordinance, commissioners decided to add a provision allowing folks to walk their dogs on the Beach Trail. Moved forward on a resolution that would appropriate a supplement of $8,500 for police education. Moved forward on a resolution to spend $14,232 for composite decking from Decks & Docks, which would be used to extend the boardwalk of a dune walkover at 122nd Avenue. Moved ahead on a resolution to spend $11,600 for 25 new Dumpsters. Moved forward on a resolution to maintain Fire Department staffing at 13 until Lt. Fred Ball retires in the fall and firefighter Heber Revella fills the vacancy created.

According to the sheriffs report, the call came in about 3:45 p.m. Deputies said Kenton Parker, 56, of Kokomo went for a swim in the Gulf with family friend, Gary Ford, 21 of Indianapolis. The two went in the water at about 16900 Gulf Blvd. and swam out to the first buoy. They then began having trouble staying above water. Parker tried to hold on to the buoy and told Ford to go back to shore and get help. Ford swam back and called for assistance. The Seminole Fire Department responded and located Parker in the Gulf at about 17100 Gulf Blvd. Parker was unresponsive. Seminole Fire transported Parker to Largo Medical Center, Indian Rocks Beach Campus. Parker was pronounced deceased at the hospital at 4:30 p.m. Deputies say the incident appears to be accidental in nature.

According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Weston Bruni, 20, had a physical relationship with the victim, who is reportedly under the age of 18 and was not identified. The report said Bruni and the victim had decided to end their relationship and just remain friends. On the afternoon of March 31, Bruni and the victim were watching a movie in an undisclosed location in Seminole when the victim fell asleep. As she slept, Bruni allegedly removed her clothing and sexually battered her. When the victim realized what was happening, she pushed Bruni away and left the residence. Bruni was arrested about 11 a.m. June 6 and is being held at the Pinellas County jail on a $100,000 bond. Deputies say during the course of the investigation, Bruni admitted to the allegations against him.Connecticut man faces battery chargesCLEARWATER A Connecticut man is serving time in the Pinellas County Jail after he was extradited back to Florida to face two capital sexual battery charges. According to the Sheriffs report, Marsanti Martinez, 24, is accused of committing sexual battery on two brothers over a four-year period about four years ago. The two victims came forward recently and informed detectives of the acts committed against them. Approximately four years ago, Martinez dated the brothers mother while living in north Pinellas. While she was away at work, Martinez would sexually abuse them. This abuse, according to the brothers, went on for over four years. Both boys were under age 12 during the abuse. After Martinez and the mother split, he moved to Britain, Conn. After being notified of the crimes, Pinellas sheriffs detectives were able to establish an arrest warrant for Martinez. Shortly after, he was apprehended by the Britain Police Department and eventually extradited back to Pinellas County. When interviewed by detectives upon his return, Martinez allegedly admitted to the charges. Detectives believe there may be other victims. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Detective Mark Kolenda in the Crimes Against Children Unit at 582-6200.

Exact charges related to the homicide are still being determined, and additional charges are pending. Schroepfor, 91, was found dead in her home on May 26, the report said. Initial indication was that it was a natural death, but detectives had concerns, so they ordered an autopsy.

This decision needs to be about what is best for your beloved companion and not about being selfish. This is not easy when you love your pet so dearly that you cant imagine a life without him/her. One of the most horrible experiences one can have is to watch a human family member with a terminal disease suffer until they die on their own. Fortunately, we do not have to do that with our pets. So how do you know when its time? Only you can make that final decision. Your veterinarian can help educate you about the prognosis of your pets condition; however, your veterinarian only interacts with your pet for small amounts of time. He or she may not have the same perspective on your pets quality of life as you do. You observe your pet every day and therefore you can answer some very important questions; questions you can use to judge your pets quality of life. The following questions are not to be asked when your pet is sick and can recover, but when a prognosis is poor to grave: Nutrition: Is your pet eating and drinking on his/her own and holding it down or are you forcefeeding your pet with success? Is your pet able to maintain a normal weight or is he/she rapidly deteriorating? Mobility: Is your pet able to get around on his/her own? Are you willing to provide hospice care or a cart (for paralysis of the hind legs) to assist him/her to where he/she needs to go? (ex: outside to void, to the water and food bowl) Interaction/Behavior: Is your pet still interacting with you and the family or is he/she so sick that he/she is hiding and doesnt even care that you are present? Is your pet still doing things that they have always enjoyed? Pain: Is your pets pain able to be controlled by pain medication? Hospice Care: Can you provide the kind of home care your pet needs to keep him/her humanely comfortable? Normal functions: Can your pet breathe, eat, drink, defecate, and urinate without too much difficulty? Mentality: If you are really in tune with your pet: Is your pet happy, hanging in there, or giving up? Is your pet having more bad days than good days? Euthanasia is not a choice for everyone due to religious or personal beliefs. The decision whether to euthanize or not is your own personal right. It is very easy for someone on the outside to see your pet and judge his or her quality of life, but only you know how well your pet is functioning at home in his/her normal environment. To be a good judge of your pets quality of life, be sure that you are not in denial about what is really going on. This is when you and your veterinarian should work together as a team to help each other during this difficult time. Knowing you can trust your veterinarian to tell you when it is time, especially when you are in denial or having a hard time making a decision is important. Once you have decided that euthanasia is in your pets best interest, be gentle and dont torture yourself with doubt about your decision. This decision is made with love and kindness. Euthanasia is a very kind and peaceful way to let your beloved pet pass to the other side with your blessing.Kim Donovan, D.V.M. is employed at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole.

Meyers, 24, has slowly been inching his way toward a spot on the team for the past two years. Following the trials, final nominations to the U.S. team will be announced on June 18. In addition to Meyers, others in the trials are Connor Fields of Henderson, Nev.; Nic Long, Lakeside, Calif.; Mike Day, San Diego, Calif.; Barry Nobles, Menifee, Calif.; Corden Sharrah, Tucson, Ariz.; Donny Robinson, Napa, Calif.; and Joey Bradford, Monterey, Calif. Meyers, Sharrah, Robinson and Bradford were discretionary invitees to the trials based on various factors, including their finish in the UCI BMX World Championship and UCI BMX Supercross World Cup. Fields, Long, Day and Nobles earned invitations by virtue of their top-five ranking in the final stands of the 2012 USA Cycling BMX power rankings. David Herman of Wheat Ridge, Colo., has already received an automatic spot on the team as the overall leader in the 2012 power rankings.Tides WGA resultsSEMINOLE Results of the Tides Womens Golf Association mystery nine event played on June 5 at the Tides Golf Club: First place Judy McNamee, 37.

Josh Meyers Tarpon, red snapper remain good optionsA brief run-in with an onshore wind flow will hopefully subside quickly enough to get us back on track for another week of what has already been an awesome beach tarpon season. Tarpon fishing will change a bit now that the full moon has come and gone. Many of the fish have spawned and will migrate toward bait filled backwater bays and inland bridges. While those large schools of beach going tarpon may not be as prevalent as they were a couple of weeks ago, there are a lot of fish still out on the beach. These fish are more in a feeding mode than a spawning mode as they were a couple of weeks ago. The tarpon will be moving both north and south, making it a bit difficult to set up on an actively moving pod of fish. Your best chance for a hook-up will often come by simply anchoring up along the pathway of the migrating fish and running fresh live baits under floats or free-lined with the tide. Offshore fishing should also be excellent this weekend with the now offshore wind flow. Red snapper and red grouper are going to be within most anglers reach. Target depths of 80 feet and deeper for consistent catches of red snapper. Red grouper also will be found in these depths. Use live pinfish and or frozen sardines for bait. Beach fishing remains awesome with our prolonged offshore wind flow. Snook, redfish and trout are hanging around sand shoals and jetties in and around passes. Free-line live pilchards over sandy drop-offs. Small circle hooks will conceal your presentation while commonly hooking the fish in the corner of the mouth, making it a much better option when catch and release snook fishing.Email Tyson Wallerstein at firstname.lastname@example.org.Send us your fishing photosSEMINOLE Got a trophy catch youd like the world to see?

Viewpoints 13A Beacon, June 14, 2012Agencies involved in mass transit in Pinellas County are moving cautiously, and correctly, in developing plans for light rail projects. The Project Advisory Committee, which is made up of elected officials representing four agencies, agreed on a proposed rail route alternative Jan. 30. It stems from a study that examined options to implement premium transit service connecting major residential, employment and activity centers in the county. Basically, the proposed light rail route connects Clearwater, Largo, the Greater Gateway area, Pinellas Park, and St. Petersburg in Pinellas County, with a regional connection across Tampa Bay to Hillsborough County. The cost of the proposed project, which includes 24 miles of light rail, 16 stations, the right of way and structures, is $1.5 billion to $1.7 billion. Officials have talked about a 50 percent local funding commitment financed over 30 years. They are looking for federal, state and public private partnerships to pay the remaining balance. Consultants and officials have emphasized that light rail plans are still in their infancy. Many levels of approval will be required at local, state and federal levels before rail projects are launched. If all goes according to plans, final design is expected to occur between 2015 and 2017, followed by three years to construct the project, officials have said. The agencies reached out to the public and local governments to build support for the transit project, known as the locally preferred alternative, and their efforts are making headway. Both St. Petersburg and Largo have endorsed the preferred route alternative. Leaders in these two cities and others recognize the benefits of light rail and other enhanced forms of transit beyond mobility, such as jobs. Officials estimate that 67,000 new jobs will be created over 30 years. As seen in other areas of the country, rail transit is expected to create development and redevelopment opportunities. Indeed, agencies have to continue to be aggressive in promoting their plans because of organized opposition to transit proposals making farfetched statements such as that the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, a stakeholder in the light project, is headed toward insolvency. Granted, because of shrinking revenues, PSTA has had to make changes in its services but it has always presented a balanced budget. Ridership continues to increase, breaking monthly records. That shows how valuable bus service is to the countys transportation system as light rail eventually will be. All local governments should get behind the rail project, with the vision that the county one day will be served by a transit system similar to those that have provided many benefits to urban areas across the country, from Honolulu to Newark. Look to the future. Forrest Gump said, Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what youll get. I say, Life is like the checkout line in a grocery store. Choose the wrong one and you may die there. One of my few talents is selecting the slowest checkout line available in any store I visit. Heres how it goes. After loading my cart, I slowly survey the 10 or 15 checkout slots available. I study each checker for his (or her most checkers are women) mannerisms and apparent speed in grabbing the items and sliding them in front of the bar code gadget. I try to note any signs of an incipient heart attack or epileptic seizure, because such events (in the checker, the bag boy or you, the customer) really stacks the odds against your returning home by midnight. Someone screams Hes turning purple! and soon the store is crawling with burly EMS workers, cops, store managers and other customers, one of whom is sure to recognize the victim and exclaim, My God, thats Leo Fulcrum from our church choir! He owes me eighty bucks. Somebody save him! While Im doing my research, I avoid getting in line behind a woman whose overflowing shopping cart indicates she has a husband, six in-laws and eight ravenous children waiting at home to wolf down the $340 worth of provisions she has just picked off the shelf. However, Ill occasionally violate that principle if the woman in question possesses superlative aesthetic attributes that require me to mentally catalog them for later review after my eyeballs stop spinning. Even with all this advance research, theres no way to be sure Ive chosen the best checkout line. The person in front of me may have only a few items, but then he pulls out the coupons and hands them to the checker, who must decipher them and deduct their value from the previous charge. Or the shopper may be using food stamps. Or she cant seem to find her checkbook. I put it right here in Pocket No. 26 of my 50pocket purse. Just give me a minute, would you please? And you do, although what you really want to give her is a swift kick in the south end of her Vidalia onion bag. A few years ago I got so tired of always choosing the slowest checkout line I decided to take pity on the poor buggers who lined up behind me. I painted a cardboard sign that read: I am under a curse. If you follow me in this checkout line, you will have to wait at least half an hour to get through. I hung the sign on my back, and hoped it would have its intended effect. Unfortunately, it didnt. One man, obviously a ruffian, snarled, What are you, some kind of wise guy? A woman read the sign and whimpered, You are a servant of the anti-Christ. Lemme out of here! The store manager phoned the cops. Weve got a terrorist here. Send the SWAT team! I was arrested on four separate charges, none of which held up, but I quickly got rid of the warning sign on my back. No kindness goes unpunished, right? Most of the checkers are trained to show politeness by asking each new customer, How are you today? They seldom mean it. Most of them are thinking of their boy friends or Mideast foreign policy. I test them by replying, Im fine, except for the subaceous cyst on my back that keeps emitting radioactive strontium. The checker usually replies, Thats nice and goes on grabbing at my yogurt or kielbasa. When I get depressed about the countrys economic troubles, I simply visit a supermarket and stroll the aisles. After noting that 187 different breakfast foods are for sale (77 of which are varieties of corn flakes), I conclude that were not in such bad shape after all. On the day when the only two cereals for sale are oatmeal and grits, Ill start to worry. Not before. The store I normally frequent has a large number of foreign-born customers, or so I assume from overhearing their conversation. Or fragments of it. They talk so fast I cant begin to use my favorite handbook, Snippets of Overseas Lingo. However, Ive learned a few useful words of Spanish, such as corazon, por que and Don Quixotes cojones. I often utter these words as I shop, and I notice that the Hispanic shoppers tend to avoid me. But this clears the aisle for my cart. Isnt life grand, when you learn a few tips like that one? Most food stores stock Spanish food, and thats fine. But none of them carry any Scottish food items. When is the last time you saw haggis or clootie dumpling for sale? Never. Just another sign of the rabid antiScot feelings that some of us must deal with. Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at email@example.com.Tips on navigating a supermarketAt a time when Floridas 11 state universities are financially gasping, the Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott are throwing $50 million away on a whimsical new school that might as well be called Useless State. Its the work of a Lake Wales Republican named J.D. Alexander, who sadly for taxpayers chaired the powerful Senate Budget Committee. Alexander is leaving the Legislature because of term limits, but as a going-away present he demanded that his colleagues fund a new university in his home district. And then he basically stomped his little feet and held his breath and huffily threatened to gut another schools budget if he didnt get his way. And most of his fellow Republicans, including our governor, caved in like the phonies and wimps they are. As a result, Floridians are paying for a new university that we dont need, and is already millions over budget before the first class meets. Its a foolhardy and very expensive mistake, and its name is Florida Polytechnic. If you live in the Lakeland area, you know that there has existed for many years a busy tech campus, a branch of the University of South Florida. Along comes Sen. Alexander and decides that Lakeland urgently needs its own independent state university, that the school should be called Florida Polytechnic and that it should replace USF Polytech, which has been there 20 years. Alexander pushed hard, saying a whole new institution was needed to produce more graduates with the skills to fill jobs in science, engineering and technology. When some lawmakers balked, Alexander said he would hack $79 million from the USF budget a brutal 58 percent reduction for a school serving 47,000 students. The House would never have approved eviscerating USF, but Alexanders empty threat worked on empty-headed legislators and thus was born Useless State. Classes are supposed to begin the fall of 2013, but the instant university is facing a few problems. No board of trustees, for example, which makes it hard to attract a president. No president, which makes it hard to attract faculty. No faculty, which makes it hard to attract students. And then theres the issue of money. Your money. Does $12 million in architectural fees for Florida Polytechnic sound reasonable to parents of students at the University of Florida or Florida State or A&M, who are facing hefty hikes in tuition and housing? According to the Tampa Bay Times, USF chief operating officer John Long says the construction project on the Lakeland campus will cost between $112 million and $115 million. Unfortunately, theres only about $99 million available. The shortfall would be made up by private donors, hopefully in time to install technology labs before a few actual technology students show up. A fuller picture of the Florida Polytechnic fiasco was laid out last month to a committee of the state Board of Governors, which is supposed to oversee the university system. Normally the board would have been deeply involved with the birth of the new school an authority granted by voters in a constitutional amendment. The whole point was to avoid such costly debacles, and to buffer higher education from the influence of grimy politics. But, as we know, constitutionality isnt a burning concern of current legislative leaders, or of the governor, no matter how many of their dumb moves get stomped in court. In this case, one vain and powerful senator wanted a brand new university, and he didnt want to wait for the Board of Governors, which had already approved a stepped plan for developing Florida Polytechnic. At Alexanders prodding, lawmakers barged ahead and created the school, basically evicted USF and started shoveling money toward Lakeland. Even that towns Republican senator, Paula Dockery, was chagrined. Before the troglodytes took control of Tallahassee, nobody went out and started a public university without a set number of students, without infrastructure, without leadership. Or accreditation. You remember accreditation, right? No biggie. Meanwhile J.D. Alexander is out the door, damage done. Only a coldblooded cynic would wonder if Alexander or any of his pals will benefit from the gush of taxpayer funds being used to construct Useless State. A court could stop the bleeding, but in the meantime applications are being taken for the make-believe schools Board of Trustees. Gov. Scott recently sent out an email seeking candidates. He says hes looking for talented and visionary individuals. Of course! Hell also send his personal unicorn to pick you up and fly you through the fairy dust to Lakeland.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Drivers SeatBob Driver Get on board rail transitCherry picking history to make a pointRe: Republicans fulfill an admonition, Mike McDonalds letter, May 31 Editor: I would like to respond to Mike McDonalds recent letter. For well over 50 years the U.S. Congress was dominated by Democrats, with one exception during the Eisenhower Administration when the Republicans held a majority in the Senate for four years. Mike states that Republicans were responsible for the high gas prices in the s. Not true! Mike, Jimmy Carter was president during the oil embargo in the late s. McDonald also failed to mention the high mortgage interest rates during the Carter years. This was a result of the malaise created by the Carter administration. Let us not forget the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, which forced banks to give mortgages to those who could not afford them, the notorious subprime mortgages that were increased during the Clinton years and, once again with the Democratic Congress under Nancy Pelosis and Barney Frank and Chris Dodds leadership. This led directly to todays housing crisis. McDonald states that the Supreme Court was stacked with conservative judges by the Republicans, completely ignoring the fact that FDR tried to stack the court with liberal judges. A historical fact, Mike, look it up. Mike conveniently ignores the Korean and Vietnam wars! What was the cost to the American people, Mike? The cost of these wars can be measured in lives lost, national treasure and national prestige. These wars were brought to us by Harry S. Truman, Democrat; John F. Kennedy, Democrat; and Lyndon B. Johnson, Democrat; and the Democratic majorities in Congress that all three had. Historical fact, Mike, look it up. In fact from the end of the Spanish-American War, (1899-1900 Republican William McKinley) until (1991 and the first Gulf War Republican G.H. Bush) no Republican had led the United States to war. Including the two world wars, Democratic presidents and Congresses had been responsible for the cost in American lives exceeding 600,000! And at what cost in national treasure. Lets not forget that it was Eisenhower and Nixon that ended those Korean and Vietnam nightmares. Mike wants to cherry pick history to make his point. Of course, Republicans have had their share of blunders, just like the Democrats. Really, Mike, Repooplikins? That might be fine for 12-year-olds but I would prefer an adult conversation. Allen Peck LargoBlame the owner, not the dogEditor: This is in response to Mr. Tritschlers letter regarding pit bulls. What he fails to mention either by ignorance or omission is that aggression toward people was bred out of these animals long ago. When a fight was over and the dog was being removed from the shed or pit where the fight occurred, if that dog turned on the handler, it was shot on the spot. Yes, there are people who teach these dogs from a young age to be aggressive toward humans to make up for their own lack of courage, but those are the exceptions and not the rules. As for the lady who wants the breed outlawed in Largo because she is afraid for her cat and child due to a neighbors pit bull, cats are not allowed to roam free in Largo, and children should be taught to not go into other peoples yards without an invitation. In conclusion, any breed can be raised to be aggressive (look at police dogs) but that is the owners fault not the dog. Matt Babac LargoDeputies wasting tax dollars?Editor: Just maybe Sheriff Gualtieri is worried about slow response time of deputies because as shown in the article in the Tampa Bay Times newspaper, his deputies are wasting our tax dollars by goofing off with little oversight. All patrol cars are fully electronically equipped with air conditioning, GPS, computer to view movies, radio, cell phones, radar, cameras all at your tax payer expense to make the deputy job easier. There are no more foot or bike patrols in neighborhoods. That would mean getting to know your patrol area as people, not targets. August is the primary for the sheriff runoff for the November elections. Make the right choice for the man with proven integrity and experience.

The measures include the following: Final regulations that establish standards for testing the effectiveness of sunscreen products and require labeling that accurately reflects test results Proposed regulation that would limit the maximum SPF value on sunscreen labeling to SPF 50+ Data request for safety and effectiveness information for sunscreen products formulated in certain dosage forms (e.g., sprays) Draft guidance for sunscreen manufacturers on how to test and label their products in light of these new measures. These measures are necessary, said Lydia Velazquez, PharmD, in FDAs Division of Nonprescription Regulation Development, because our scientific understanding has grown. We want consumers to understand that not all sunscreens are created equal. This new information will help consumers know which products offer the best protection from the harmful rays of the sun. It is important for consumers to read the entire label, both front and back, in order to choose the appropriate sunscreen for their needs. Everyone is potentially susceptible to sunburn and the other detrimental effects of exposure to UV radiation. The final regulations, which become effective June 18, 2012, establish a standard test for over-the-counter (sold without a prescription) sunscreen products that will determine which products are allowed to be labeled as Broad Spectrum. However, to avert a shortage of sunscreen in the upcoming months, FDA has extended the compliance dates for testing and labeling until Dec. 17, 2012, for most over-the-counter sunscreenPhoto courtesy of FDANew regulations coming from the Food and Drug Administration require manufacturers to provide information to help consumers know which products offer the best protection from the harmful rays of the sun.products. This decision followed a review of timelines and other data submitted by trade associations representing sunscreen manufacturers. With summer coming, we wanted to ensure we had sunscreen products available on store shelves for everyone, says Velazquez. Products that pass the broadspectrum test will provide protection against both ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) and ultraviolet A radiation (UVA). Sunburn is primarily caused by UVB. UVB and UVA can cause sunburn, skin cancer and premature skin aging. A certain percentage of a broad-spectrum products total protection is against UVA. Under the new regulations, sunscreen products that protect against all types of sun-induced skin damage will be labeled Broad Spectrum and SPF 15 (or higher) on the front. The new labeling also will tell consumers on the back of the product that sunscreens labeled as both Broad Spectrum and SPF 15 (or higher) not only protect against sunburn, but, if used as directed with other sun protection measures, can reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. For these broad spectrum products, higher SPF (Sun Protection Factor) values also indicate higher levels of overall protection. By contrast, any sunscreen not labeled as Broad Spectrum or that has an SPF value between 2 and 14, has only been shown to help prevent sunburn. Reynold Tan, a scientist in FDAs Division of Nonprescription Regulation Development, notes that FDA has been developing testing and labeling requirements for sunscreen products for decades. However, only recently have the data become sufficient to establish an accurate and reliable test for broad spectrum UV protection, he says. To help consumers select and use sunscreens appropriately, the final regulations include these additional labeling provisions: Sunscreen products that are not broad spectrum or that are broad spectrum with SPF values from 2 to14 will be labeled with a warning that reads: Skin Cancer/Skin Aging Alert: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. This product has been shown only to help prevent sunburn, not skin cancer or early skin aging. Water resistance claims on the products front label must tell how much time a user can expect to get the declared SPF level of protection while swimming or sweating, based on standard testing. Two times will be permitted on labels: 40 minutes or 80 minutes. Manufacturers cannot make claims that sunscreens are waterproof or sweatproof or identify their products as sunblocks. Also, sunscreens cannot claim protection immediately on application (for example, instant protection) or protection for more than two hours without reapplication, unless they submit data and get approval from FDA. In addition to the final regulations, in June 2011 FDA proposed a regulation that would require sunscreen products that have SPF values higher than 50 to be labeled as SPF 50+. FDA does not have adequate data demonstrating that products with SPF values higher than 50 provide additional protection compared to products with SPF values of 50. FDA also requested data and information on different dosage forms of sunscreen products. The agency currently considers sunscreens in the form of oils, creams, lotions, gels, butters, pastes, ointments, sticks, and sprays to be eligible for potential inclusion in the OTC sunscreen monograph meaning that they can be marketed without individual product approvals. The agency currently considers wipes, towelettes, powders, body washes, and shampoo not eligible for the monograph. Therefore, they cannot be marketed without an approved application. For sunscreen spray products, the agency requested additional data to establish effectiveness and to determine whether they present a safety concern if inhaled unintentionally. These requests arose because sprays are applied differently from other sunscreen dosage forms, such as lotions and sticks. In addition, FDA issued a draft guidance to help sunscreen manufacturers understand how to label and test their products in light of the final and proposed regulations and the data request on dosage forms. FDA has received numerous comments on the labeling proposal, draft guidance and requests for data. The agency is currently evaluating the data and information included in these comments. Spending time in the sun increases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To reduce this risk, consumers should regularly use sun protection measures including: Use sunscreens with broad spectrum SPF values of 15 or higher regularly and as directed. Limit time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the suns rays are most intense. Wear clothing to cover skin exposed to the sun; for example, long-sleeved shirts, pants, sunglasses, and broad-brimmed hats. Reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours, more often if youre sweating or jumping in and out of the water. Were on your team! The Beacon 397-5563

Sometimes you go to talk to a friend and dialogue flows freely and effortlessly. Other times, the person is busy. The exchange may be polite but brief, strained and abrupt, or never more than a nod acknowledging your presence. At sea, theres a broad parallel to the waxing and waning of human availability for social interaction. Capt. John Heidemann and I study the bottlenose dolphins in our local waterways. Im not talking about direct interaction with dolphins per se, though they sometimes engage us. Im talking about the waxing and waning of their relative availability for detailed study. In mid-May, we found mom Valiant and her son Vidalia heading into a small promising cove near the Narrows. Vidalia is the only Johns Pass dolphin Ive ever touched. Last November, after a team of veterinarians and stranding experts cut off the terrible tangle of fishing line encircling his body but before they set him free, I reached out and laid my hand flat on his body for a second. What I really wanted to do was embrace him wildly, somehow relating my horror and glee at his fishing line entanglement and rescue. But like a passing Hey how are ya? when youd prefer to talk all night, now Im back to watching him from a distance. Im content with that though Ill never touch another Johns Pass dolphin. More often than not, it doesnt work out when humans treat free-ranging animals like pets. Trying to is a moral violation. Its also illegal to feed or touch wild dolphins (with good reason!). Mom Valiant needed a little chat with Vidalia. As they approached that promising cove, she swam with exaggerated slowness directly over a bed of shellfish that presses up convexly from the sea floor. Dolphins often glide through seagrass patches the same way. Our technical term for such behavior is rubbing their bellies, which they do to groom their undersides. Like kids anywhere, Vidalia couldnt abide by his moms slowness and sprinted ahead. Valiant trailed him but soon rolled over onto her back and repeatedly whacked the water surface with her tail, behavior called inverted motorboating. Her belly-to-the-sky position revealed two very full mammaries. I wondered if she had tried to press them gingerly on that shellfish bed to release some of the pressure. Valiants tailslapping was a self-maintenance behavior that also cried, Lets talk, kid! Vidalia blew off her bid. So she redoubled her efforts in an unusual way: She vocalized so hard she squeaked at the surface! He flowed back to her and nursed. A pale patch of dolphin mothers milk spilt into the green seas, as it did when Vidalia was a tiny calf (Dolphin Watchs Just so much spilt milk). Valiant and Vidalia have had this kind of discussion before. At 16 months, Vidalia is busy figuring out how to live on fish. Barely giving us the dolphin version of an acknowledging nod, he sped off into the promising cove to forage independently for our entire observation. Mom Valiant streamed off in another direction. When dolphins are busy searching for food like this, you had better be content watching them from a distance. This was an example of times when wild dolphins are unavailable for detailed study because theyre rarely and barely visible at the surface. We extended our observation time hoping that Vidalia would change his behavior so I could get pictures of his flanks. His delicate dolphin skin had been badly chafed by a wad of fishing line snarled around a sponge that slapped his flanks for the 20 weeks of his entanglement. The chafe marks finally began healing this spring. I wanted to see how that was going. But the little gray sprite was too busy and I couldnt get any pictures. As frustrating as wild dolphin behavior can be to study, its deeply satisfying to know that Johns Pass dolphins remain wild in every sense. The good citizens of Gulf Boulevard get the lions share of credit for this because, here, people do NOT feed the dolphins but do interact with them only through tactful observation. Tactful observation is critical to keeping dolphins wild, as people in other parts of Florida have discovered to their despair. Its essential to include in your personal conservation consciousness and to help others understand and embrace. Tactful observation is like respecting the preoccupation of a busy person, which often leads to free and effortless dialogue later. This works with dolphins too. That evening, Valiant and Vidalia cruised with Q, her calf Qball, and her big bull suitors Ouch and Fishlips. Not particularly busy, this time the dolphins were relatively available for study. They freely brought their behavior to the boat in brief but gripping detail. Valiant seemed to be under less pressure than that morning. She toyed easily with Vidalia as he curled around her and even clambered onto her dorsum like he did when unhappily entangled and too tired to swim. This time it was fun; its intriguing that hes maintained this rare behavior. Qball flirted with Vidalia and the bulls, social skills shell need when she weans from Q (anytime now). Ouch invited Qs attentions by wearing a piece of grass on his dorsal fin but she swam coyly on her own. The dolphins relative availability condensed the satisfaction of an all-night conversation into fleeting minutes of banter, as Einstein said time could.

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesBeacon Section B June 14, 2012Visit www.TBNweekly.com Like some alien race engineering a new species from scraps found lying in the sediment of a primordial ocean, Prometheus blends genres liberally in an attempt to forge an original mythology. Prometheus contains elements of hard science fiction, space opera, cosmic horror and theological thriller. There are allusions aplenty, with creator/creation themes evoking Mary Shelleys Frankenstein (subtitled The Modern Prometheus) and philosophical quandaries reminiscent of the existentialist perspective. There is even a hint of H.P. Lovecrafts cosmicism written between the lines and some viewers may also recognize the call of Lovecraft in one of the films more ambitious tentacled alien monstrosities. For the last six months, teasers and trailers have declared that with Prometheus, director Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define. Speculation has been rife about whether or not the film would serve as a direct prequel to Scotts influential, critically-acclaimed 1979 science fiction horror classic Alien. The answer is clear: yes and no. Sorry, no spoilers, here. Simply put, Prometheus works as a standalone film. The subject matter certainly echoes that of Alien and there are a number of direct visual references, all intentional. The relationship between the new film and the old franchise is complicated and the premise is completely different. With Alien, Scott put the emphasis on shock and awe. With Prometheus, the director is looking to astound and unsettle. Set in the last quarter of the 21st century, Prometheus follows a team of scientists and explorers aboard the ship Prometheus as they travel to a distant planet. Among them are two archeologists, Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Holloway (Logan Marshall), who discovered evidence in prehistoric cave pictograms and inscriptions from ancient civilizations suggesting early contact with an alien race. Having convinced a mega-corporation to fund the expedition, Shaw and Holloway expect to find benevolent beings, referred to as Engineers in the film. Other members of the crew have conflicting views and incongruous motives for making the trek. None are prepared for what they find on the distant, inhospitable world. As Shaw, Rapace is the embodiment of the human survival instinct. Comparisons to Sigourney Weavers portrayal of Ripley, the warrant officer aboard the Nostromo in the original Alien, are practicallyAt the movies Photo by KERRY BROWN/TWENTIETH CENTURY FOXMeredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and Janek (Idris Elba) survey a distant planet on the bridge of the ship Prometheus. mandatory. Rapace impresses with a gritty, gripping performance, dragging the audience through one of the most jarring and visceral cinematic segments in recent memory. As Holloway, Marshall offers a credible rendering of a reckless scientist. His performance is fittingly subdued in order to draw more attention to Shaw. A highlight of the film is Michael Fassbenders portrayal of the android David. Designed to be indistinguishable from humans, David clearly has some issues with his creators.

The Happy Together Tour will feature The Turtles with Flo and Eddie, The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz, The Buckinghams, The Grass Roots and Gary Puckett and The Union Gap. Happy Together by The Turtles hit No. 1 on the charts in 1967 and remains a staple on classic rock radio to this day. Although their biggest hit and signature song, its just one of their nine Top 40 hits, which includes such popular songs as Shed Rather Be With Me, Elenore, You Showed Me and It Aint Me Babe. In 1966, hot on the heels of their new NBC television show, The Monkees would release a self-titled debut album that would top the U.S. charts for 13 consecutive weeks and sell an overwhelming 3.2 million copies in just three months. The single Last Train to Clarksville from the album would be their first No. 1 hit. Their second No. 1 hit came quickly with Im a Believer, featured on the bands second album, More of The Monkees. Gary Puckett & The Union Gap was one of the most successful musical groups of the s. Pucketts unmistakable signature voice garnered six consecutive gold records and top ten Billboard hits such as Young Girl and Woman Woman. Kind of a Drag from The Buckinghams would also reach the pinnacle of chart success, yet mark just one of many popular hits from the band including Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, Dont You Care, Susan and Hey Baby (Theyre Playing Our Song). Their success in 1967 would lead them to be named The Most Listened To Band in America by Billboard Magazine. The Grass Roots burst upon the scene in Between 1967 and 1972 thanks to numerous hits such as Midnight Confessions, Lets Live For Today, Sooner or Later, Id Wait A Million Years and Temptation Eyes the band would set a record for being on the Billboard charts for 307 consecutive weeks.

This piece is titled Leopard, by Larry and Linda Mayes. By LEE CLARK ZUMPEDUNEDIN What better way to welcome summer than with an outdoor craft festival in the picturesque, village-like setting of downtown Dunedin. Art-lovers will officially kick off the summer season at the annual Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival, Saturday and Sunday, June 23-24, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Main Street. For those tired of spending every weekend navigating crowded shopping malls and shelling out hard-earned cash to see Hollywoods latest cinematic duds, this Howard Alan Events presentation is the perfect ticket. This popular two-day craft showcase traditionally attracts artists and crafters from all along Floridas west coast. Shoppers will find a wide variety of unique crafts and affordable gift items. The crafters will be on site for the duration of the festival, allowing attendees an opportunity to learn more about their art. Like other Howard Alan Events, this show will be a juried outdoor craft festival featuring distinctive and reasonably priced crafts handmade in America. Participants are leading local and national crafters working in a wide range of craft mediums. Shoppers will find everything from folk art and pottery to handmade jewelry and paintings. There will be a selection of personalized gifts, handmade clothing, scented soaps and body products. All crafters are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants by American Craft Endeavors, producers of some of the top outdoor craft festivals in the country. More than 150 local and national crafters, from 30 different states, are expected to take part in this years festival. Following is a list of Florida-based crafters scheduled to participate in the Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival: Gissell and William Barbour, Sebring Jewelry, ear cuffs Mickey D. and Mike Bradham, Homosassa Plastercraft Melanie Cech, Spring Hill Jewelry, glass sculpture Tony and BJ Falduto, Spring Hill Glass bottles Lori Green, Brooksville Jewelry Karen and Jerry Hull, Cape Coral Glass jewelry Sidney and Lee Klein, Leesburg Coin jewelry Peter Lakiotis, Clearwater Pet products, leashes Debra Larson, Sarasota Jewelry, beads and crystal Larry and Linda Mayes, Venice Jewelry Mary Jane Powell, Groveland Beaded jewelry Kathy and Ken Rosenberger, Palm Harbor Beaded jewelry Denise Smith, Weirsdale Jewelry Barbara Thiem, Dade City Scarves with jewelry Jean Weidinger, Palm Harbor Jewelry Loretta and Price Youngman, Ormond Beach Acrylics According to Gissell and William Barbours website, their company, Ear Art Inc., uses only the finest materials, including Austrian and Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, with .925 sterling silver or 14 karat gold-filled beads and 14 karat gold-filled jewelry wire. We put a great deal of pride in every item that we create, the Barbours say on the website. Our family is the original inventor of wirecrafted earpins and earcuffs and has been making jewelry for the past 25 years. Sidney and Lee Klein create beautiful hand cut jewelry out of coinage from countries around the world. We started creating cut-coin jewelry more than a quarter century ago in Sacramento, Calif., the couple explains on their website. We started at the local flea market, then to military bases, on to doing CB jamborees, and graduated to art & craft shows in shopping malls, traveling the United States. While they were working the shopping mall circuit, Lee learned to solder, so she can make cufflinks and tie tacks. She also makes buckles, but cufflinks are her favorite to make. We are now exhibiting our beautiful cut coins in outdoor craft shows and festivals, almost always in Florida. Born and raised in Missouri, Larry and Linda Mayes now live in Venice on the southwest coast of Florida. According to Howard Alan Events, the couple now works together to create one-of-a-kind wearable art from bamboo tiles. Each bamboo tile has been individually created by the artists, an entry explains at the official Howard Alan WordPress blog. A miniature image of an original photograph by Linda (an awardwinning and nationally published photographer), painting, vintage print or collage adorns every pendant. Even pet-lovers will find something of interest at the festival. Peter Lakiotis of Clearwater specializes in handcrafted accessories for dogs, according to Howard Alan Events. Some of his products include harnesses, carries, leashes, sunglasses and collars. The 10th annual Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival will include a Green Market offering a wide variety of plants including exotic orchids, dips and gourmet items. The annual event is free and open to the public and it helps support both the arts community and the local economy. For information, visit www.artfestival.com. 504-7012.

St. Petersburg Picturing a New Society : Photographs from the Soviet Union 1920s-1980s, through Sunday, Aug. 19, in the second-floor Works on Paper Gallery in the Hazel Hough Wing of the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg. The exhibit explores how photography was used in the development and propagation of communism. It also raises larger questions surrounding the perception and interpretation of photographs, which are often viewed as strictly representing reality. Artists in the early days of Soviet rule redefined their role in society. No longer creators of paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the elite, many artists embraced photography as an art for the masses. They advanced the cause of the October Revolution of 1917 by experimenting with avant-garde processes and points of view. Photographers represented include Alexander Ustinov, Max Alpert, Emanuel Evzerikhin, and Georgi Zelma, among others. The photographs in this exhibition are selections from recent donations by Howard Schickler and Janice Tuckwood of more than 200 Soviet photographs. These images, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets are $5. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Set in unoccupied Africa during the early days of World War II, an American expatriate meets a former lover, with unforeseen complications.

The legendary band Boston returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall with Tom Scholz, seasoned Stryper frontman Michael Sweet, Tommy DeCarlo and musical veterans Jeff Neal, Kimberley Dahme, Gary Pihl. This will be Bostons first concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall since their sold-out show in August 2008. Many remember where they were when they first heard More Than a Feeling or Hitch a Ride on the radio in 1976. Bostons self-titled first album has sold more than 17 million copies in the United States alone, along with their second album, Dont Look Back, in 1978, which has sold more than 7 million copies in the United States. Amanda from Third Stage in 1986 shot to the top of the charts and held a record-breaking stay at No. 1, in spite of being the only hit single that year not accompanied by a music video. With more than 31 million albums sold worldwide, hits like Peace of Mind, Smokin and Rock & Roll Band are still as ubiquitous on rock and roll radio as they were when they were new. Boston will be performing many of their classic hits, including some fan favorites that have not been on the set lists for many years.Largo Titanic A Voyage in Art through July 15, at the Armed Forces History Museum, 2050 34th Way N., Largo.

Tarpon Springs Works by Warhol, through July 15, at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, on the Tarpon Springs campus of St. Petersburg College, 600 Klosterman Road, Tarpon Springs. No other artist is as much identified with Pop Art as Andy Warhol, dubbed the Prince of Pop by the media of his time. This select exhibition of work by the prolific pioneer who, by using images of popular American culture and commerce, altered perceptions about what constitutes art. The exhibition, Works by Warhol: The Cochran Collection, showcases some of Warhols classic pop subjects including Mick Jagger, Donald Duck, Uncle Sam and Teddy Roosevelt and Andy Warhols self portrait, The Shadow. He considered himself to be his greatest artistic achievement, created from the man born as Andrew Warhola in 1928. Works by Warhol: The Cochran Collection features 35 silkscreen prints, created in the 1970s and 1980s, over the span of Warhols career: The Myth series (1981), which encompasses predominately fictional characters, and the Cowboys and Indians series (1986), which includes prints that exemplify the immortalization of the American West. Warhol mastered the art of silkscreen printing, which unlike other printmaking processes, renders an image directly onto the surface rather than by a transfer from one surface to another.

This months Featured Expert, Barbara Schmal of Krazy About Cake, answers the following question from Kathleen C. of Seminole.Q. When Should I Order My Wedding Cake?A. I recommend you shop around with different cake decorators. Your larger grocery stores and bakeries can usually create a cake with a two-week notice, however if you choose an independent cake decorator, it is best to secure your date as soon as possible.Important information to provide your cake decorator: The event date, venue, number of guests, type of cake, filling, etc. Provide pictures of cakes youve found so you along with your decorator can create your own unique cake. Bring color swatches for your wedding, or the theme of your wedding. The more information you provide, the better. Most importantly, do not give anyone a deposit without getting a contract from your vendor. Ask a lot of questions, such as: Does the final price include delivery, cake stand, etc? What is the deposit on rented items, and how long can I keep it before I return it. Remember to feel comfortable with your cake decorator, as you may also use them for all the special occasions you and your future husband will share throughout your life. Krazy about Cake loves making cakes and cup cakes for all occasions.

Then, one sunny day, their perfect world is irrevocably shattered. Leaving their 5-year-old son, Ben, alone for only a moment, Craig is horrified to see him being abducted from their own front yard. Sadly, the desperate police search for the kidnapper proves to be in vain when the child is found dead. Craig is wracked with guilt and Elise cannot forgive him. Their relationship crumbles under the strain and Elise moves out leaving each of them alone in their private hell. Months later, a chance tip leads police to the suspects door, catching him red-handed with another victim. Although Bens murderer (Bill Moseley) is soon brought to trial, the grieving parents are stunned when his sentence is considerably reduced by a plea bargain.

Together they decide to seek their own retribution, hatching a plot to kidnap the man and subject him to the same monstrous acts he perpetrated against their helpless son.Your Sisters SisterGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass Director: Lynn Shelton Rated: R The fourth feature from Sundance award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton, Your Sisters Sister is a tale of grief, romance and sibling rivalry that continues to showcase Sheltons extraordinary ability to portray human stories with remarkable humor, sensitivity and warmth.
