The Walmart supercenter being built as part of a commercial development across the street from the Bay Pines VA Hospital is nearing completion, he said. It will result in $8.5 million in tax revenues brought into the city, he added. Mayor Leslie Waters said the Walmart manager told her that the stores grand opening will be Wednesday, July 16 at 7:30 a.m., though shes unsure if this is a tentative date. Hiring for the store is underway and Walmart plans to hire 85 employees. The sites developer, KE Bay Pines Properties LLC, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and the city unveiled a new passenger shelter on the corner of Bay Pines Boulevard and 100th Way on May 23. Named The Mediterranean at Bay Pines, the new bus shelter was designed by a local artist to complement the Mediterranean Revival Style of both the Bay Pines development project and the nearby VA hospital. The new shelter was funded completely by transportation impact key monies from the developer, Edmunds said, so no citizen tax dollars were spent. Other components to the Bay Pines development include 56 single-family homes to be built by KB Home, an eight-building apartment complex with 330 units to be built by Contravest, a hotel and more than 21 acres of additional retail space. Construction of the apartment units is ongoing Edmunds said and will represent a $24 million tax base By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Taxable values are up by an estimated 5.63 percent in 2014 good news for local governments and agencies currently working on their budgets for the coming fiscal year. Pinellas County Property Appraiser Pam Dubov released the 2014 estimates of change in taxable values May 29. There are some good signs of an improving market, including an estimated increase in the just market value of real property of over 10 percent, Dubov said. The value of new construction is up to $298 million approximately 40 percent over 2013. She pointed out that preliminary estimates lack some the larger tangible personal property accounts, which could add or subtract from the totals. Tangible personal property includes items such as business equipment and machinery, said Amanda Coffey with the Property Appraisers Office. She said it is typical for larger companies to apply for an extension, giving them until Mid-May to file their paperwork. Dubovs staff is still working to complete those estimates. We dont anticipate a huge percentage change, Coffey said. Millage rates for the different taxing authorities, with the exception of emergency medical services, transportation and Pinellas Park Water Management District, are applied to the value of tangible property and added to the tax bill.

David Jolly is hosting a VA Intake Day on Tuesday, June 17, to talk to veterans who have had problems at the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center. With the growing VA controversy, its imperative that we hear directly from veterans about their experiences, wait times and the quality of service theyve been getting at local facilities like Bay Pines Healthcare System, Jolly said in his weekly newsletter released May 31. But unless we hear directly from veterans, we may never know if there are local problems, to what extent there are problems and what types of corrective actions need to be taken. The intake is scheduled at the Seminole District Office on the campus of St. Petersburg College, 9210 113th St., between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Veterans will be able to meet with staff and discuss their experiences. For more information, call 392-4100. In some cases, we hope by getting involved we can resolve the problems immediately, Jolly said. But this intake may also give us a clearer snapshot of what is truly happening locally. Jolly said he had spoken with the director of the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System about intake day and expects Bay Pines to be ready to help. It should be noted that my staff already works on veterans casework but again, unless we hear about problems we may never know how to take corrective actions, Jolly said. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned May 30. From the beginning of the VA crisis, Ive believed personnel changes would be required and I respect the Secretarys decision, Jolly said. However, his resignation does not bring an end to the crisis, but it does provide an opportunity for the president to demonstrate his commitment to swiftly eliminate the medical waiting lists now.

Call Today For All Your Dental Needs Judge Patrick Caddell dies at 60 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Judge Patrick Caddell died from cancer Tuesday, May 27. Ron Stuart, public information officer for the Sixth Judicial Circuit announced the news. I am truly sad to report that Pinellas County Judge Pat Caddell passed away this morning at Largo Medical Center, Stuart said in an email. Caddell, 60, served as a Pinellas County Judge since 1986. According to the Conference of County Court Judges of Florida, he is the longest serving election canvasser in the state. He served on the Pinellas County Canvassing Board for every election for the past 22 years. Judge Patrick Caddell was a dedicated member of our election family for 22 years and served our voters with honor, said Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark. No one cared more about ensuring the integrity of election results. As chairman of the Pinellas County Canvassing Board, his knowledge of the election process was both invaluable and unprecedented. He generously shared his wealth of experience with county judges statewide by conducting seminars and mentoring those who chaired canvassing boards in other counties. He will be truly missed, and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with his wife Sue and his family. The Clearwater Bar Association awarded Caddell with the George W. Greer Judicial Independence Award May 16 during the annual Law Day Awards presentation. The award honors Judge George W. Greer for the work he did on the Terri Schaivo case. The award is not something the association bestows every year Pinellas County Judge Patrick Caddell Photo by HALINA DAVISSeminole Vice Mayor Tom Barnhorn places a flag at Bay Pines National Cemetery on May 24.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 2Aas it goes only to those who act with courageous judicial independence, sometimes involving an unpopular decision that excites the mob. Sometimes it involves siding with the little guy against the substantial power of the government, according to a statement released by the association prior to the award ceremony. Caddells recognition was for the way he handled a case of a St. Petersburg physician who received a citation for a scrolling message on a sign in front of his office. The citys sign ordinance allowed certain venues more leeway in operations of their signs than it did others. Caddell found that the double standard violated the equal protection clause and struck down a portion of the ordinance. According to a statement from the Clearwater Bar, when the physician thanked Caddell for recognizing the natural born rights I have of free speech, Caddell said, Its what I do for a living. Dont think youre anything special. This is the kind of judicial independence that we should all appreciate, the association said. Caddell received other awards during his time on the bench. In 2005, he was the only judge to receive the Governors Peace at Home: Stopping Domestic Violence Award. He also received a Leadership Award for reducing domestic violence. In 2001, he received a Special Recognition Award for his work with the Florida Association of County Judges Public Education of the Courts Team. He received an Outstanding Service Award in 1998.

CADDELL, from page 1A BAY PINES, from page 1AIm encouraged by the administrations comments Friday about quickly addressing the wait time issue and I have renewed my call for the president to remain personally engaged in this matter until every veteran has received the timely care they have earned and should expect. Gov. Rick Scott released a statement May 25 about news reports of a veteran that died at Bay Pines in April due to a misdiagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer. Theres no question that the VA is failing to keep their promises to the men and women who served our country, Scott said. This case demonstrates that the problems weve seen at VA hospitals is institutional and have been going on far too long. State inspectors were turned away at Bay Pines after the governor ordered inspections of all the states VA hospitals. Scott vowed to sue the U.S. Veterans Affairs May 28 after inspectors from the state agency for Health Administration were turned away at the federal veterans facilities. As the chief health policy and planning entity for the state that licenses, inspects and investigates consumer complaints, AHCA should be allowed access to federal VA hospitals to inspect their processes and facilities, Scott said. On seven separate occasions at six federal VA hospitals, however, state inspectors have been blocked by federal officials from carrying out their mission of ensuring facilities in Florida meet the healthcare needs of our veterans. The governors request for the lawsuit was made prior to Shinsekis resignation, which Scott said was a good first step in much needed reform in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. AHCA submitted a Freedom of Information Act appeal May 30 for records the Department of Veterans Affairs has failed to provide. The governor said the request is in addition to the lawsuit AHCA is preparing to file for the right to gain access to VA hospitals. With 1.5 million veterans that call Florida home, were committed to being the most veteranfriendly state in the nation and reports of deaths, neglect, poor conditions and a secret waiting list in federal VA hospitals in Florida are unacceptable, Scott said. Garrett Connell, right, and Brody Patrick, left, from Troop 279 were presented with their Eagle Scout Achievement Awards in a Court of Honor Ceremony held in the Seminole Ward building of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Largo on April 30. For his Eagle Scout project, Connell worked with the park rangers at Fort DeSoto Park on a beach preservation project by planting sea oats. In May 2012, he held a car wash fundraiser to raise the $400 needed to purchase the sea oats. On June 9, 2012, he organized and led a group of 50 volunteers to plant approximately 4,000 sea oat plants at a designated area of Fort DeSoto Beach. Brody completed a pond restoration project at a long neglected pond at the Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center in Brandon. The restoration of the pond included trash and debris removal, brush and vegetation removal, and the installation of an aerator for the pond.

Memorial Day salute SPC to host Four Generations community conversationSEMINOLE Advances in medicine, workplace safety, risk management and healthy nutrition practices in the last 50 years have vastly increased life expectancy in the United States. As a result, Americans are experiencing an unprecedented demographic shift: Four full generations in relatively good health living side by side. Florida is a model of the demographic reality the nation will face in 40 years. There are currently 3.3 million Floridians age 65-plus living in the Sunshine State 18 percent of the population, and over 500,000 of them are over 85. Pinellas Countys age demographics are even more tilted to graying: 21.5 percent of its population is 65 or older, and 4 percent are 85-plus. How our four generations children, parents, grandparents and super-elders can live in harmony and mutual support is the subject of a community conversation at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N., Tuesday, June 17, 7 to 9 p.m., in the Digitorium. The program, titled Our Families Four Generations: Ready or Not, Here We Are!, is jointly hosted by the 4Generations Institute of Tallahassee and the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Tampa Bay Times is presenting sponsor. The public is invited, and advance registration is required at solutions.spcollege.edu. A panel of experts representing programs serving each stage of life will explore how, by creative action and effective advocacy, the four generations can leverage the assets of each age group for the betterment of all. The needs for health care, education, family services, employment, public safety and environmental protection are best addressed through the lens of our four major age groups, said Jack Levine, founder of 4Generations Institute. How we address the needs of the four generations is among the most critical economic and public policy challenges for the next decade. The Community Conversation, moderated by Levine, will include six Pinellas County leaders whose organizations serve one or more of the four life stages: Dr. Marcie Biddleman, executive director, Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County Eileen Boyle, executive director, Allegany Franciscan Ministries Hon. Rene Flowers, member of the Pinellas County School Board Judge Raymond Gross of the Sixth Judicial Circuit Family Court Jeff Johnson, director, AARP of Florida Shannon Reid, vice president of Education and Practice Management, Raymond James Financial The 4Generations Institute is a non-profit based in Tallahassee that promotes community volunteerism for the mutual benefit of the four generations: children/youth, parents, grandparents, and elders. Its goal is to identify model intergenerational programs and projects, to expand the impact of quality mentoring and volunteer initiatives, and to cultivate an environment to nurture communications across the generations. The Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg is a resource for academic enrichment, a non-partisan venue for civil, objective debate of topical public issues, a center to promote better government, and a resource for sustainable economic development. Its mission is to support a broad array of research, training, educational and policy analysis and support activities at the local, state, regional and national levels. For more information, contact David Klement, executive director of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, at 394-6933. PROJECTS, from page 1A added to the city. KB Home held the grand opening for The Cove at Bay Pines on Jan. 7. About 17 of the planned single-family homes are under construction, and the entire subdivision is nearly 50 percent sold out, said Cara Kane, senior director of Corporate Communications for KB Home. Floor plans range from 2,294 to over 3,000 square feet, she said, and home prices start at $330,000. The Cove will represent a tax base of around $16.8 million for the city, Edmunds said. Nothing is set for the 2-plus acre hotel site on the property, Edmunds said, but the developer is in discussions with several interested parties. And of the four retail outparcels, two of them will be unnamed restaurants, he said. Edmunds also provided updates other major projects in the city: North American Development Group, the new owner of the Seminole Mall, has yet to bring a concept plan to the city, Edmunds said. But the developer, who has partnered with Primerica for maintenance, management and redevelopment of the site, has indicated it would like to apply for city permits by the end of 2014 and begin construction in 2015, he said. Mayor Waters said shed like better communication from NADG regarding the malls redevelopment. I would like to ask if there was any way for them to communicate with council a little better than theyre doing now, she said. I dont see much communication. I dont hear much. Everything is rumors No one quite knows whats going on and its an eyesore in the community. Its rundown. She also said that shed like to see upscale shopping and dining that would attract visitors from throughout the region. I want to see Seminole Mall be a destination, she said. Councilor John Counts disagreed. He said hed prefer to see a development similar to The Shoppes at Park Place or the Largo Mall. Seminole is a transitory town, he said. People pass through on the way to the beach. It would be nice if people would stop and shop in our community as they pass through. The reality is in our part, the economy has shown that it cant sustain higherend restaurants and higher-end retail shops. The next step for Waterfront Park, located at 10400 Park Blvd., adjacent to Home Depot, is to grade the site, Edmunds said. The deadline for bids for the project is June 6. A master plan will also be created based uponPhoto courtesy of PINELLAS SUNCOAST TRANSIT AUTHORITYThe new bus shelter near the Bay Pines commercial development complements the Mediterranean Revival Style of the KE Bay Pines Properties LLC project as well as the nearby VA hospital.recommendations from a recreational advisory committee for the park. The parks main use will be a kayak and canoe launch, for which the city has received $200,000 in grant money to construct. This master plan will be used to obtain future grants, Edmunds said, though the city is appropriating $200,000 a year for the project for the next five years. Its not a project thats going to be completed next year, he said. Its intended to be long-term. Last month, the council approved a guaranteed maximum price for the Community Center project at City Park. The $2.5 million project will be funded by existing Penny for Pinellas money and a five-year bond. The center will include public rental space, a home for the Seminole Historical Society Museum and storage space for the city. Biltmore Construction is ready to initiate the project, Edmunds said, and construction should start this month. It will be completed by February 2015.

Taxes on real property bring in the most money to government coffers. Property owners with increased values will likely have larger tax bills next year even if millage rates stay the same. Some areas of the county will see bigger increases in tax bills than others due to the variety in changes of taxable values. This is the second year values have increased after four years of losses. The estimates for 2014 are nearly double last years gain of about 3 percent. Dubov will certify the tax rolls on July 1 and report final values to the taxing authorities. Dubov will mail truth in millage notices with tentative millage rates and potential tax bills to property owners Aug. 22.Countywide estimatesThe countys general fund will profit from the 5.63 percent increase in total taxable values compared to 2013. The dollar value of almost $3.2 billion includes a 6.1 percent gain in real property tax values plus new construction and tangible personal property. The dollar value for Emergency Medical Services is about $3.2 billion, about $724 million for the municipal taxing district (unincorporated county), $3.9 billion for the school district, nearly $2.9 billion for Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and about $418 million for the Pinellas Library Cooperative. Annual property tax bills are calculated using the millage rate from the different taxing authorities and applying it to the property value minus homestead and other exemptions. County staff is currently working to balance its revenue against requests for more money coming from its departments, independent agencies and Constitutional Officers. The Sheriffs Office alone has requested an additional $15 million. A breakdown in negotiations with local fire departments will likely lead to less than anticipated budget savings for emergency medical services. Business Technology Services has requested $725,000 in additional funding. After four years of budget cuts, the increase in property values also could help restore money to departments with the most need, such as code enforcement and environmental management.Municipal estimatesThe town of Redington Beach leads the county with an 8.80 percent increase in real property values. Add in the preliminary estimate for tangible property, which is down slightly, the towns total taxable value is up by about 8.19 percent compared to 2013. In real dollars, that translates to about $27.2 million more in taxable value than last year. Several other beach towns are among municipalities with the biggest jump in taxable values. The estimated increases are as follows. Dollar values are rounded. Total taxable value includes tangible property and new construction. Redington Beach 8.89 percent real property values, 8.19 percent total taxable value, or $27.2 million Indian Rocks Beach 7.75 percent real property, 7.65 percent total taxable, or $59.5 million Redington Shores 7.76 percent real property, 7.51 percent total taxable, or $37 million St. Petersburg 7.56 percent real property, 6.98 percent total taxable, or $876 million Indian Shores 7.46 percent real property, 7.31 percent total taxable, or $47.3 million Belleair Shore 7.42 percent real property, 7.41 percent, or $7.6 million North Redington Beach 7.40 percent and 7.41 percent, or $28.4 million Belleair Beach 7.13 percent and 7.10 percent total taxable, or $28.2 million Treasure Island 6.68 percent and 6.55 percent total taxable, or $85.2 million Oldsmar 6.53 percent real property, 6.13 percent total taxable, or $64 million Dunedin 6.29 percent real property, 6.05 percent total taxable, or $106.3 million South Pasadena 6.25 percent real property, 5.34 percent total taxable, or $23.2 million Gulfport 6.20 percent real property, 5.98 percent total taxable, or $39.2 million St. Pete Beach 5.98 percent real property, 5.74 percent total taxable, or $118.5 million Madeira Beach 5.8 percent real property, 5.72 percent total taxable, or $49.2 million Safety Harbor 5.76 percent real property, 5.04 percent total taxable, or $48.7 million Tarpon Springs 5.7 percent real property, 5.57 percent total taxable, or $73.4 million Clearwater 5.63 percent real property, 5.27 percent total taxable, or $407.5 million Belleair Bluffs 5.45 percent real property, 5.20 percent total taxable, or $8.5 million Kenneth City 5.24 percent real property, 4.51 percent total taxable, or $5.2 million Seminole 5.11 percent real property, 4.75 percent total taxable, or $46.4 million Largo 4.73 percent real property, 3.41 percent total taxable, or $131.2 million Belleair 4.42 percent real property, 4.35 percent total taxable, or $25.4 million Pinellas Park 3.97 percent real property, 3.97 percent total taxable, or $103.1 million For more information, visit www.pcpao.org. TAXABLE VALUES, from page 1A By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH A final action by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on proposed manatee protection zones along the Intracoastal Waterway in Pinellas County could come as soon as February. A Local Rule Review Committee is about halfway through its process of taking public opinion on 21 proposed zones where boaters would be required to operate at reduced or idle speed. Scott Calleson, a biologist with the Imperiled Species Management Section of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, told members of the Barrier Island Governmental Council May 28 that his office would prepare a report on those suggestions that would be handed over to the full commission at its September meeting. From that point, there would be at least two public hearings before a final action in February or April. Most of the areas that have been identified are south of Park Boulevard in shallow, sea grass areas. The areas vary in size, he said. Were trying not to affect the (Intracoastal Waterway) channel but if we feel its important, there could be some areas affected, Calleson said. The only existing manatee protection zones in Pinellas are north of the Courtney Campbell Causeway near the shore northward into Safety Harbor. Idle speed is in effect April 1 to Nov. 15. The reason for concern in western Pinellas is the number of manatee deaths since 2000, Calleson said. Boat-related deaths to manatees were infrequent through the 1990s, he said. Since 2000, western Pinellas has had close to 40. So thats about three per year for the last 12 to 13 years. You might have had three or four in the whole decade of the 1990s. Redington Shores Mayor Bert Adams asked if the increase in the local manatee population might be the reason for the increased numbers. Red tide and cold weather have affected their numbers, said Calleson. Theyve taken some hits, but the information we have is that theyre not crashing. Boat-related mortality is up and has increased tremendously as the cause of death. The indications are that the interaction between boats and manatees has grown faster than the population. Calleson said in the mid-2000s, concerns over manatee safety began to increase. In 2007, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife issued a biological opinion identifying the southern half of western Pinellas County, from Park Boulevard south, as an area where it had concerns about lack of manatee protection. Those concerns have affected state and federal permitting of boat facilities, among other things, which have resulted in a halt to federal permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, as well as state permits and local authorization. Large facilities have a high degree of likelihood of affecting manatees, said Calleson. So the federal side was not giving their OK for permits. So essentially since 2007, large projects have been on hold. About the same time, the FWC developed a state manatee management plan, trying to prioritize what it needs to do at the state level for manatee protection. The Local Rule Review Committee is the start of the state process. Pinellas County formed an LRRC in March and we started meeting with them, said Calleson. Theyre about half-way through it. When theyre finished they will submit a report back to commission about their recommendations. After that we will start the formal process with a couple of public hearings and then a final action taken by the commission. The final action is probably six to eight months away. So probably sometime in early 2015. Members of the local committee are Doug Speeler, Speeler Companies; Bill Allbright, local boater; Dave Travis, Bay Pines Marina; Dave Markett, Florida Fishing Guides Association; Terri Skapik, Woods Consulting; Mark LaPrade, Thunder Marine; Serra Herndon, Tampa Bay Watch; Katie, Tripp, Save The Manatee Club; Elizabeth Fleming, Defenders of Wildlife; Charles White, manatee rescue volunteer; Dave Kandz, St. Petersburg Audubon Society; and Janine Cianciolo, Sierra Club.

The lawsuit is aimed at preventing the hotel from being demolished and replaced with Condos and townhouses. Johnson is joined in the suit by two RPD residents, Doris Hanson and Mary Lou White, whose standing in the suit is that their property values have dropped because of the deteriorating condition of the hotel. Residents of the Residential Planned Development, located around the hotel, have long complained of the condition of the property. Johnson is the president of the Friends of the Biltmore Inc., the nonprofit organization formed to preserve the century old structure. The lawsuit seeks to stop the sale of the hotel to Developer Mike Cheezem who has a six-month option on the property and who plans to demolish it and replace it with a small hotel and residential units. Johnson, who has appeared and spoken at just about every commission meeting opposing zoning changes and other events surrounding the hotel property, said the lawsuit in federal court reiterates much of what she has been saying all along. She hopes the court action will get the attention of the mayor and commissioners and the Ades brothers, owners of the property. The town is not following the law; they are circumventing the law, she said. In order to make zoning changes they must do it in a quasi-judicial hearing, which they did not. They are trying to say it is a legislative matter, one which can be dealt with by the commission, and clearly it is not. Johnson wants to stop what she calls the demolition by neglect of the hotel. She said the owners have done nothing to stop the deterioration of the building and that the National Historic Preservation Act mandates that properties on the list of Historic Places, such as the Biltmore, must be kept in good condition. The roof could be fixed for $250,000, she said. Nevertheless, the way the building looks has nothing to do with the structural soundness of the hotel. Johnson also said the sale of 2.3 acres of hotel property to the adjacent Belleair Country Club should not have happened and only serves to give the Ades brothers more reason not to try to save the hotel. They can now say there isnt enough land left for parking, she said. Both defendants in the case say the lawsuit is without merit. We will vigorously defend ourselves, said Ed Armstrong the attorney representing the Ades brothers. We dont believe this action will hold things up and from our standpoint the sooner it gets to court the better. Town Attorney David Ottinger was even stronger in his comments. The complaint has innumerable incorrect statements of fact and false allegations, he said. The claims appear to have little or no legal basis and do not appear to be matters that should be decided by the federal court. Ottinger also said he was upset with some of the allegations outlined in the suit. I find most disturbing and insulting the allegations that the commissioners have conflicts of interests and violated the Sunshine Law. That is absolutely not the case, he said. The record will reflect that the town commission, every step of the way, has done everything possible to facilitate the preservation of the hotel. Johnson openly questioned Ottingers abilities Our town attorney doesnt have the experience to guide the town through this, she said. Johnson said the entire debate over the fate of the hotel, apart from the historical part of it, comes down to taxpayers money. The town is looking at another $10 million investment for a water plant, she said. If we dont keep the hotel then there will be an increase in taxes that will fall directly on the shoulders of the taxpayers. If we keep the hotel there will be lots of tax money generated for the years ahead. Financially it makes no sense not to keep the hotel. None of the parties involved know when the matter will actually get to court or how long it will take to play out. If no injunction is issued to stop any activity, Ottinger says things will just move along as normal.Photo by BRIAN GOFFRae Claire Johnson stands on a balcony above the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. She and others have filed suit aimed at saving the structure. GULFPORT The battle was spicier than ever in the fourth annual Top Local Chef competition, produced by LocalShops1 and Intensity Academy. But only one chef could go home with the Top Local Chef title and a wild card spot in the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, where he will compete for prizes up to $500,000. That chef was Ramon Hernandez, 2013 Top Local Chef winner and owner of Pipos Restaurant on Bay Pines Boulevard. Hernandez took home the coveted Giant Silver Knife, which he plans to proudly display next to his prize from last year, the Giant Silver Fork. The event, which took place April 27, packed the Gulfport Casino with eight competing chefs and more than 250 guests. Im so proud and honored to have been a part of this, said Hernandez. I felt confident coming into the competition, but knew that I would be up against some very good local chefs, thats why it took me weeks to come up with the right combination of flavors, that once combined I would have a winning recipe. Thanks to all the judges who have been given that special gift from God called Taste Buds and the knowledge to choose a winning dish. Im sure it must have been really hard. The winning dish, Pigs in Paradise, featured two pork and cheese empanadas served over sweet plantains mash and a ladle of the secret sauce, Intensity Academys Saucy Everything. The dish was garnished with a bedding of banana leaves and topped with roasted pimientos, cilantro and a sprinkle of secret spice. Pipos Restaurant was up against seven other top local chefs from: Granny Smith Kitchens, St. Petersburg Island Flavors And Things, Gulfport Serendipity Cafe, Dunedin Shubee Shack, North Redington Beach Taco Bus, Tampa and St. Petersburg Twisted Cork Grill, St. Petersburg Wine Madonna, St. Petersburg Shubee Shack Chef Pat Shubee Bearrys crab cakes earned him the Peoples Choice Award and a deluxe LocalShops1 business membership, valued at $200. Shubees entry was a Maryland-style jumbo lump crab cake with a Florida flair, featuring the main ingredient Saucy Everything sauce, and broiled to perfection on top of a bed of fresh hand-cut slaw. Im so excited that the people liked my dish and voted the peoples choice, Shubee said. I own a 98-square-foot deli in North Redington and to be recognized by the surrounding area is a joy, knowing a small place has big taste. Thank you so much for the opportunity. Top Local Chef 2014 took place in front of a sold-out audience of more than 250 at the casino and helped to raise food and funds for the Gulfport Senior Center Foundation, which offers seniors healthcare, meals and social services. The judges panel was comprised of five area journalists and bloggers. They included: Janet Keeler, Tampa Bay Times Isabel Laessig, Family Foodie Noah Pransky, 10 News Carlos Hernandez, Carlos Eats Cathy Salustri, The Gabber The event, organized by LocalShops1 and Intensity Academy, was sponsored by the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce, Gerardo Luna Photographs, A Sweet Statement, ShoutOUT Tampa Bay and Simple with Style Events.

Police 7A Seminole Beacon, June 5, 2014 11350 66th St. N., Largo727-538-7771 The cost of professional in-home care at first glance may look greater than it truly is. That is, until family caregivers consider the value of the time and financial sacrifices made to care for a loved one. If you are a family caregiver, you know all too well that the responsibility requires a considerable amount of your time time and attention your loved one deserves. As a caregiver, you are on call day and night. You coordinate transportation to and from medical appointments, grocery shopping and other errands. You have another home to clean. You are the one who helps pay bills, provides companionship for your loved one and takes care of other tasks as needed. This is often in addition to holding down a job and caring for your immediate family. When you work with a reputable in-home care agency, such as Comfort Keepers, you will still be in charge of the care your loved one receives. You just will not be responsible for the time-consuming, day-to-day care giving responsibilities. In addition to peace of mind, our in-home care delivers a wide range of services, working with seniors and their families to create care plans that meet their specific needs. These individual care plans allow seniors the opportunity to age in place, safely and securely. Our services provide support to help preserve seniors' dignity and independence as well. Comfort Keepers requires a two-hour minimum visit and we base our services around your loved ones needs. It may be meal prep, light housekeeping, a bath visit or it may be both. We create a plan of care that can be affordable and at the same time, specific needs are met on a weekly basis. The greatest benefit to hiring a caregiver from an organization that employs its caregivers is the oversight provided and convenience for everyone involved. Details are not your responsibility. The biggest distinction with Comfort Keepers is: We employ the caregiver, and clients are not burdened with employer laws and requirements. Our employees undergo rigorous background checks, interviews and reference validations. Our caregivers are covered by workers' compensation, general liability and bonding insurance. A large roster of caregivers can "step in" in the event the regular caregiver is unavailable. Ongoing Client Advocate visits are in place to assure a trusting bond between client and caregiver. More seniors prefer to stay in their own home, enjoying cherished memories and maintaining a level of privacy and independence.

David Gordon Price, 32, formerly of Altamonte Springs, was arrested May 31 and charged with felony defrauding an innkeeper and grand theft. Deputies responded to the Don CeSar Hotel, 3400 Gulf Blvd. in St. Pete Beach, about 4:30 p.m. May 31.According to the sheriffs report, hotel personnel discovered the Prices belonging in a prior guests room. Deputies said the guest staying in the room was scheduled to check out Saturday. When hotel staff went to check on the room, they discovered luggage and a drivers license that did not match the original guest. Deputies said the license belonged to Price. While at the hotel, deputies made contact with Prices father who came to the hotel to pick up Prices items. The father had just bonded Price out of the Pinellas County Jail. The son had been arrested at 6 a.m. May 31 by the St. Petersburg Police Department for disorderly intoxication, providing a false name or identification to a law enforcement officer, petit theft and a warrant out of Alachua County for defrauding an Innkeeper. Deputies said Price was found nearby on Gulf Boulevard and was arrested. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.

Police received reports of prostitution and unlicensed massage taking place at Executive Nineteen, 6541 44th St. N. in Pinellas Park in April. An investigation concluded with the arrest of Teresa Duckett Wallace, 41. According to a police report, Wallace did commit these offenses in the presence of detectives and admitted to the same. The police report also said that the city of Pinellas Park had issued a Business Tax Receipt to Wayne Replogle whose application stated that the business was Aromatherapy. The observations made by detectives lent no credibility to that fact, and it was obvious based on their investigation that the business was being used for prostitution, the report continued. Executive Nineteen was advertised on Backpage.com and Creative Loafing offering Seductive Ladies for a Flat Fee. Police provided examples of the advertisements, including, Meet the sexy ladies of Executive Nineteen. Located in Pinellas Park close to all major highways and interstates.

Police said that Replogle denied any knowledge of what took place in the business and said that he was asked to get a BTR for the girls. He said that his presence was to serve as a deterrent to visitors at the business, and told the girls not to do anything they didnt want to do. Wayne Replogle was issued a notice of revocation of his BTR by the city. Wallace was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $2,250.87-year-old hit in CVS parking lotSEMINOLE A vehicle driven by an 88-yearold hit an 87-year-old in the parking lot of the CVS, 7405 Starkey Road in Seminole just after Police beat11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 27.

PETE BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies say quick action by a man visiting from New York saved a Georgia man in danger of drowning off St. Pete Beach Tuesday evening. Deputies responded about 6:52 p.m. May 27 after receiving a 911 call about a distressed swimmer on St. Pete Beach close to the 3600 block of Gulf Boulevard. According to deputies, Terry Strecker, 66, of Smyrna, Georgia swam from shore out to the swim bouys. When he was about 100 yards from shore, he became tired and could not return. Strecker began yelling for help as he began to go under several times. James DiFrancesco, 29, of Kenmore, New York and his wife heard the cries for help and saw Strecker beginning to go under. DiFrancesco began to swim to him. Deputies said Strecker was near exhaustion as DiFrancesco reached him. DiFrancesco was able to get him back to shore safely. His wife called 911. St. Pete Beach Fire Department treated Strecker at the scene and kept him under observation.

At around 11 p.m., she was driving through the parking lot on her way out when she stopped for an unknown reason and got out of the car while it was still in drive. She sideswiped a parked car before she was pinned. Police speculate that she was possibly trying to get back into her car or catch up to it when she was trapped between the two cars. Her car was perpendicular to the parked cars in the lot, according to reports. She was caught between the drivers side of her car as it came to rest against the rear of another car that was properly parked in a spot. Hospital security found her pinned and called for help.

OR 727-400-6870 727-400-6870 County offers summer safety tips for people and wildlifePinellas County officials remind beachgoers to keep a few things in mind to make the experience safe and fun for themselves and the wildlife along the Gulf of Mexico. Stingrays are common in the shallow waters of the countys coastline. These fish typically spend time along the sea floor, sometimes partially covered by sand. While they are not aggressive, stingrays will sting with their tail when stepped on. To avoid a sting, beachgoers are urged to do the stingray shuffle, which simply involves shuffling feet and kicking up sand when wading into coastal waters, rather than taking full steps. Practicing the stingray shuffle at local beaches can prevent injuries to people and the stingrays. Another animal that lives in the Gulf, appearing around area beaches is the sea turtle. Sea turtles typically nest along the Pinellas County coastline from May to October, and hatchlings face many obstacles to survive. When nesting, an adult female sea turtle comes ashore, digs a hole in the sand and lays about 100 to 150 eggs, covering them before returning to the water. Over the next couple of months, these eggs hatch, and the tiny hatchlings make their way across the beach into the sea. Sea turtle nests are marked with wooden stakes and yellow ribbon by trained monitors. Disturbing the nests or the sea turtles themselves is against the law. If beachgoers come across a nesting sea turtle, hatchlings or a nest, they should keep a safe distance and avoid getting between the turtles and the water, as this may prevent them from reaching the Gulf. Other obstacles include chairs, umbrellas and other debris left along the beach. Beachgoers should remove these items after each visit to keep the path clear for nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. Pinellas County Coastal Management also makes sure to prevent or mitigate impacts to sea turtles while conducting beach nourishment projects. Anytime a beach nourishment project is taking place we work with permit holders at Clearwater Marine Aquarium to assure minimal impacts to sea turtles, said Andy Squires, coastal and freshwater resources manager with Pinellas County Coastal Management. Artificial light also can disrupt the nesting process, disorienting hatchlings and leading them away from the ocean. Many beachfront municipalities in Pinellas County have passed lighting ordinances. Beachgoers and property owners along the water should minimize artificial lights that shine directly on the beach to give hatchlings a better chance at survival. These simple steps will help make nesting season successful. Nesting animals of the winged variety also can be found in some of Pinellas Countys parks and preserves, and they too are best viewed from a distance. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, people should avoid entering areas with posted shorebird/seabird signs, keep dogs on a leash and away from nesting areas, properly dispose of trash to keep predators away and avoid flying kites near nesting areas. When the birds become aggravated, people are too close. Videos about parks and preserves can be found on the countys YouTube channel (PCCTV1) at www.youtube.com/user/pcctv1/search?query=pa rks+and+preserves.

Visit www.TBNweekly.com June fishing looks great for nowPicture-perfect weather has been the norm recently. Both fish and Mother Nature seem to be on the same page. Its hard to imagine better fishing anywhere. Enjoy these days, as it wont be long before its smoking hot for days on end and the summer doldrums begin. Tarpon action remains hot along the beaches as well as the Skyway Bridge and the 90-foot hole at Egmont. School after school is making their way from both the north and south. Spotting rolling fish and making a stealthy approach for an accurate cast has been the ticket for early morning hook-ups off the beach. Afternoon outgoing tides last weekend produced a good crab flush and the fish staged up at the passes at the mouth of Tampa Bay. Look for there to be plenty of fish in the passes over the next week as we await the full moon where we should see another crab flush. East winds have made for some pretty good beach snook fishing. Schools of snook can be seen traveling the swash channel. Sight cast to these fish with live shrimp and a variety of both hard and soft plastic lures. Super clean water calls for a stealthy approach and the use of a long light leader. Kingfish would normally have started to thin out by now, but given the timing of the baitfish migration, they are very much still here. A lot of smallto medium-sized fish can be caught from three to 10 miles offshore. Troll spoons behind planers in areas that you are seeing schools of bait. Live baiters can toss handfuls of live pilchards out behind the boat to get the action fired up. Mangrove snapper fishing has been excellent recently. Ledges and artificial reefs in 30 feet of water and deeper are holding schools of mangrove snapper that have been easy to chum up to the surface. Using a combination of a frozen chum block and fresh threadfins or pilchards snipped with scissors right off the back of the boat, these fish will often rise right up to the surface where they can be fooled with light leaders and small hooks on your medium-sized spinning tackle.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

PETERSBURG An innovative public-private grant partnership forged by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program will provide almost $625,000 to nine agencies or organizations for important restoration, applied research and education projects in the Tampa Bay watershed. The 2014 Tampa Bay Environmental Restoration Fund grant recipients were recognized in a special ceremony June 3 at Clam Bayou Nature Preserve, 4148 34th Ave. S., St. Petersburg. The event featured speakers such as Steve Kornell, St. Petersburg councilman and estuary program policy board chair; Bo Davis, The Mosaic Company vice president of phosphate operations and The Mosaic Company Foundation board member; and Wendy Griffin of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The 2014 fund is financed with contributions from SWFWMD, The Mosaic Company Foundation through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Manatee County, Pinellas County, TECO Energy, the Florida Department of Transportation and Port Tampa Bay. According to a press release, the estuary program and Restore Americas Estuaries, which have pledged to work together to recruit financial donors and achieve measurable conservation outcomes from the funded projects, are managing the grant program jointly. Nine of the 14 grant proposals were awarded full or partial funding. They include: Colonial Waterbird Management in the Tampa Bay Watershed ($36,000) Audubons Florida Coastal Islands Sanctuary staff will manage and track population trends and threats in nationally significant waterbird nesting colonies supporting 50,000 pairs of 31 bird species annually.

Duette Preserve Hydrologic Restoration ($87,260) Manatee County will restore forested and non-forested freshwater wetlands by removing manmade ditches to recreate natural hydrologic flows in the eastern Manatee River watershed. Bay Soundings Environmental Journal ($25,000) The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council will produce, print and distribute one year (four issues) of this popular environmental journal informing citizens about bay management trends, issues and accomplishments. MacDill Air Force Base Living Shoreline ($41,000) Tampa Bay Watch will place 137 tons of oyster reefs and plant 1,000 linear feet of salt marsh grass utilizing community volunteers as part of a comprehensive restoration along the southeastern shoreline of MacDill AFB. The funding and administrative partnership was cobbled together by the estuary program as a permanent replacement for the highly successful Pinellas County Environmental Fund. That program provided more than $10 million over a decade for bay restoration projects. When it was phased out, TBEP led the search for new sponsors to keep this important grant opportunity afloat. Last year, SWFWMD, The Mosaic Company Foundation, Hillsborough County and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation funded the program as the Tampa Bay Environmental Fund, which provided $950,000 for 10 bay projects. This year, RAE a respected national alliance of 11 community-based conservation organizations agreed to join the partnership in a key management role, and the name of the program was modified to the Tampa Bay Environmental Restoration Fund. All the 2013 and 2014 grant fund recipients, along with the partners whose generous contributions support the grants, were recognized in a ceremony at Clam Bayou. Here and There Here and There

Van Der Beck, a former player and a Rowdies legend, organized five stations for each of the Rowdies players in which the kids, ages 4 through 12, rotated through. This clinic provided a fun atmosphere where the kids learned some valuable skills from Pro Soccer players. After the clinic, the players signed autographs and took photos with the kids. The Rowdies play their home games at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg. For more information, visit www.Rowdiessoccer.com.Soccer clinic Sports roundupPro beach volleyball returns to St. PeteST.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rowdies have announced a partnership with the Chargers Soccer Club, which makes the Rowdies the official professional soccer partner of the Chargers U.S. Development Academy. Based in the Tampa Bay area with chapters in Clearwater, Tampa and Lakewood Ranch, CSC is a member of the United States Soccer Development Academy, which provides the optimum developmental environment for the nations top youth soccer players. With a direct connection to U.S. National Team programming, the academy emphasizes long-term development through quality training and limited, meaningful competition. This exciting partnership holds great significance for the Rowdies organization, Rowdies general manager Perry Van Der Beck said. As one of the premier soccer clubs in the Southeastern United States, the Chargers have built an impressive reputation for producing players who have gone on to play at professional and national team levels. The Rowdies will have an advisory role in the development and execution of the technical aspects of the Academy (coaching selection, technical staff selection, player selection). The Chargers Soccer Club is very excited to be partnering with a professional organization with an incredible reputation such as the Rowdies, Chargers director of coaching Peter Mannino said. The vertical integration of youth soccer through the professional level is something that we have been striving to achieve. The real winners from this partnership are the players and fans. At the end of this process, the benefits to both organizations involved will be outstanding. Chargers Academy teams play at the U-14, U-16 and U-18 levels. Current Rowdies Brian Shriver and Kyle Clinton both played youth soccer for the Chargers. Shriver is the reigning NASL Golden Boot Winner, awarded to the leagues top goal scorer. This partnership also allows the Rowdies to identify, develop and mentor top local, homegrown players through the Rowdies-Chargers Development Academy. This will ultimately elevate our game performance for many years, much like the top tier soccer clubs in the United States and around the world, Van Der Beck said. Once again, the Rowdies ownership has proven a deep commitment to the sport of soccer at all levels. This is a winning partnership for the entire Bay area.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, June 5, 2014I recently learned that before long millions of people may be living in miniature homes called micropods miniature houses or apartments that, while cramped, will still provide the necessary elements of a genuine home. The reasons given for this possible trend are that (a) the average American will not be able to afford the old-fashioned home that includes a couple thousand square feet of interior living space, and (b) our population is growing so fast that well eventually run out of available big-time living spaces even if we were all millionaires. The persistence of homelessness is also a spur toward developing micro-houses or micropods. In 2013, an estimated 610,000 men, women and children slept without shelter every night. A few cities have already begun trying the Tiny House solution to homelessness. While no one suggests that tiny homes are a permanent fix for homeless persons, micropods can be regarded as at least a beginning. Persons living in a micropod are off the street, and therefore not subject to being arrested for vagrancy or other municipal offenses. Or being mugged by thugs. The typical U.S. home has 2,600 square feet. Tomorrows tiny houses will require only 100 to 400 square feet. Would you be willing or able to undertake having such a snug home? Who knows? You may already have endured living like a sardine, at least for a short time. Example: a Pullman berth on a passenger train. That can be either romantic, or dangerous. I once knew a young married couple who were devoted to one another until they traveled from Miami to Boston, sharing Pullman accommodations all the way. By the time they reached Baltimore they had learned more about each other than they ever wanted to know. Physical closeness can breed either passion or mutual contempt. Second example: military service. It can be excellent training for living in a micropod. For several years in the Navy every clothing article and other personal possession I owned I kept in a foot locker the size of a suitcase. A sailor who is suddenly transferred to another ship must be ready to pack all his belongings into a single seabag. As a civilian, I sometimes still feel guilty when I buy an extra shirt or toothbrush. Speaking of sailors: anyone who has lived aboard a sailboat or powerboat will probably view a micropod as a palace, relatively speaking. Id wager that many micropod designers first learned their skills while working for boat builders. But on a boat theres still room to move about to go topside and feel the breeze. A micropod will not afford that luxury. Once inside a micropod, thats it, folks. Wiggle room just wont exist. A micropod will require its occupant to double up. The kitchen sink may also serve as the bathroom sink. A bed surface can be converted into a desk or a dining area. Does the prospect of making such arrangements charm you? Me, neither. As a spouse arrives home at the end of a workday, he or she would not have to announce, Honey, Im home! The moment he opens the front door hed be facing his beloved from about 2 feet away. Micropod residents wont have to worry about having dinner parties. There wont be enough room to entertain anyone, unless they are terrifically skinny. As we read about micropods and the adventure of living in restricted quarters, we quickly become aware that much of the human race is already dwelling in sub-standard arrangements that would make a modern micropod seem like paradise. In many Chinese cities, ant tribes are common gatherings of workers jammed into stinking hovels. Around the globe today, landlords are able to charge outrageous rental fees. Postage-stamp-sized apartments in Manhattan cost $2,000 a month or more, and desperate city-dwellers gladly get in line to grab one. In all the research and chatter that centers on how to get people to live in small spaces, one important truth is sometimes ignored. It is this: in most humans, there is an inescapable need to be alone for part of each day, even for just an hour, in a quiet, private space a bedroom, a garage, a woodshed. A micropod will answer that need, but only for one person at a time. Two at the most. After that, there simply wont be room for the tranquility that solitude provides. Logic therefore suggests that the primary market for micropods will be recluses, loners and others who choose to live alone. That describes millions of todays citizens. But micropods, its hoped, will at least bring the price down.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

When Pyle was killed by a Japanese machine gun bullet on the tiny Pacific island of Ie Shima in 1945, his columns were being delivered to more than 14 m illion homes, according to his New York Times obituary. This is the last of Pyles columns that Tampa Bay Newspapers is running in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1994.NORMANDY BEACHHEAD, June 17, 1944 In the preceding column we told about the D-day wreckage among our machines of war that were expended in taking one of the Normandy beaches. But there is another and more human litter. It extends in a thin little line, just like a high-water mark, for miles along the beach. This is the strewn personal gear, gear that will never be needed again, of those who fought and died to give us our entrance into Europe. Here in a jumbled row for mile on mile are soldiers packs. Here are socks and shoe polish, sewing kits, diaries, Bibles and hand grenades. Here are the latest letters from home, with the address on each one neatly razored out one of the security precautions enforced before the boys embarked. Here are toothbrushes and razors, and snapshots of families back home staring up at you from the sand. Here are pocketbooks, metal mirrors, extra trousers, and bloody, abandoned shoes. Here are broken-handled shovels, and portable radios smashed almost beyond recognition, and mine detectors twisted and ruined. Here are torn pistol belts and canvas water buckets, first-aid kits and jumbled heaps of lifebelts. I picked up a pocket Bible with a soldiers name in it, and put it in my jacket. I carried it half a mile or so and then put it back down on the beach. I dont know why I picked it up, or why I put it back down. Soldiers carry strange things ashore with them. In every invasion youll find at least one soldier hitting the beach at H-hour with a banjo slung over his shoulder. The most ironic piece of equipment marking our beach this beach of first despair, then victory is a tennis racket that some soldier had brought along. It lies lonesomely on the sand, clamped in its rack, not a string broken. Two of the most dominant items in the beach refuse are cigaretes and writing paper. Each soldier was issued a carton of cigaretes just before he started. Today these cartons by the thousands, water-soaked and spilled out, mark the line of our first savage blow. Writing paper and airmail envelopes come second. The boys had intended to do a lot of writing in France. Letters that would have filled those blank, abandoned pages. Always there are dogs in every invasion. There is a dog still on the beach today, still pitifully looking for his masters. He stays at the waters edge, near a boat that lies twisted and half sunk at the water line. He barks appealingly to every soldier who approaches, trots eagerly along with him for a few feet, and then, sensing himself unwanted in all this haste, runs back to wait in vain for his own people at his own empty boat. **** Over and around this long thin line of personal anguish, fresh men today are rushing vast supplies to keep our armies pushing on into France. Other squads of men pick amidst the wreckage to salvage ammunition and equipment that are still usable. Men worked and slept on the beach for days before the last D-day victim was taken away for burial. I stepped over the form of one youngster whom I thought dead. But when I looked down I saw he was only sleeping. He was very young, and very tired. He lay on one elbow, his hand suspended in the air about six inches from the ground. And in the palm of his hand he held a large, smooth rock. I stood and looked at him a long time. He seemed in his sleep to hold that rock lovingly, as though it were his last link with a vanishing world. I have no idea at all why he went to sleep with the rock in his hand, or what kept him from dropping it once he was asleep. It was just one of those little things without explanation that a person remembers for a long time. **** The strong, swirling tides of the Normandy coastline shift the contours of the sandy beach as they move in and out. They carry soldiers bodies out to sea, and later they return them. They cover the corpses of heroes with sand, and then in their whims they uncover them. As I plowed out over the wet sand of the beach on that first day ashore, I walked around what seemed to be a couple of pieces of driftwood sticking out of the sand. But they werent driftwood. They were a soldiers two feet. He was completely covered by the shifting sands except for his feet. The toes of his GI shoes pointed toward the land he had come so far to see, and which he saw so briefly. is very careful not to negatively comment on those groups. Thump the Bible or whatever, if it assuages fear of a mythical hell. Just quit doing it on our tax dollar. And that goes for the Supremes and their recent ridiculous decision regarding prayer before governmental meetings. In their great wisdom they also decided that corporations are people. At least the liberal leanings, as you put it, of a newspaper dont become law. Frank M. Barker SeminoleAcknowledge responsibility on global warmingEditor: I would suggest there is a way to eliminate the skepticism with which global warming is greeted by some, especially those who have elected to engage in the politicization of the issue. I refer mostly to those on the far right of the political spectrum who have allowed themselves to be duped into playing puppet for the American Energy industry. What those of us living in the world of reality must do, if there is any possibility of making real change before it is too late, is to wave the white flag where it can be seen by the power brokers in the energy industry, signaling to them they have won and we are surrendering. What we must ask in return is that these people agree to try and convince those they have been brainwashing for the last half-century that in effect global warming is a reality and poses a clear and present danger so they will no longer stand in the way of positive action. Next we must assure them we will pressure government to initiate immediately a comprehensive program similar to the Manhattan Project, one aimed at developing new or vastly improved energy sources that are both clean and renewable. These sources of energy can then replace the fossil fuels now being used. In and of itself this will not be good news to this industry. The pot must be sweetened and this can be done by passing laws, or if necessary a constitutional amendment, one that will guarantee those now controlling production and distribution of energy that they also will be in control of the energy produced by these new sources, and further that they will be allowed to fix price without government interference at any level for the foreseeable future. We must also agree to indemnify the industry from any financial losses they will incur as a result of this action, including loss of anticipated profit from their holdings in gas, coal, oil, nuclear generation, production facilities and distribution networks. Further they must be assured they will not be expected to be responsible for any of the costs associated with development of the new technology, and that at the same time we must agree they will hold all rights to this technology, including the right to license it to foreign nations. In effect we must give away the store! I think we would be amazed at how quickly the puppets would be induced to speak from the other side of their mouths if we took these steps, altering forever the production and distribution of energy. Or, we could simply tell the energy industry and their supporters, they as well as the rest of us, must immediately acknowledge our responsibility and accept and make the changes deemed necessary before our irresponsibility renders the problem moot. Bob Shaw Madeira BeachAddress school bus safety issuesEditor: Very little pressure is placed on the safety of our children riding school buses. While we search for a way to stop bullying and harassment, lets not forget how important it is to transport our kids with safety in mind. Is there a common good reason why school buses are not equipped with safety belts? Im currently reading an article that says a school bus was hit from behind and 14 children were sent to the hospital. Imagine the parents freaking out. In our modern day, we value safety equipment for airplanes and vehicles. We build buildings and schools with safety codes. I just dont understand the reasoning why we dont protect our most precious resource. Its simply a no brainer. The first thing we can do as parents is secure a child in a stable car seat. As they grow older we do not let them in a vehicle without fastening their seatbelts. It boggles my mind that city officials havent tackled this problem for the safety of our children. Gary Neal ClearwaterT.I. residents want to retain their rights to voteEditor: The residents of Treasure Island have repeatedly spoke at the city meetings in the last six months and told the mayor, commissioners, and the local planning agency (made up of P&Z people) that they were spot zoning for one developer, that they were increasing the density in the ordinance from 22 to 50 units per acre (which is against the law) and that we would never approve a height increase over the law set in place which states five stories plus one level of parking, but we were ignored. It took a legal opinion of $5,000 from another law firm to confirm what we have said all along. We do not want to lose our right to vote by referendum on any attempts to increase height or density on Treasure Island. You can get info/updates on Facebook and/or www.OurTreasureIsland.com. Shelley Eckert Treasure IslandDont use tax dollars to proselytize religious beliefsRe: Political correctn ess out of contr ol, Thomas Michalskis column, May 22-23Editor: Couldnt agree with you more about the total goofiness of political correctness. I would, however, ask you to reconsider your use of the word fanatic regarding non-religious people. We dont object to your Christmas, nor do we seek to deny you the right of worship and belief. We strongly object to the use of our tax dollars in the advertising, promotion, proselytizing and brainwashing of the innocent as seen in our public schools, courthouses, city halls, parks, the voucher funding of religious schools, prayer openings of public meetings ... and I could go on. Thirty percent of Americans claim no religion in many, many valid polls (not FOX? News?) and the U.S. Census. Thats more than the combined number of Jews and Muslims in the United States.

Pets need to be at least 3 pounds or 3 months old for surgery. On Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m. and noon, the clinic will offer $20 microchips and $5 nail trims. SPOTs Spay and Neuter clinic has done more than 20,000 spay and neuter surgeries and has helped another 30,000 pets with low cost vaccines in the past five years.

Pet overpopulation is the No. 1 killer of pets in America. There are too many pets and not enough homes. Cats start reproducing as early as 4 months and dogs as early as 6 months. The humane solution is to spay and neuter them to prevent the litters, before they start. To schedule a surgery appointment, call 329-8657. Surgeries are offered Monday through Thursday. Vaccine clinic is available on Monday and Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The microchip clinic is offered on Tuesday and Thursday between 9 a.m. and noon The SPOT Spay & Neuter clinic is at 4403 62nd Ave.SPCA Tampa Bay seeks foster volunteersLARGO A Kitten Shower and Foster Orientation will be presented Saturday, June 7, noon to 2 p.m., at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130th Ave. N.

The film, distributed by Magnet Releasing and set to open in select theaters June 6, is a disturbing tale about a religious movement seeking to establish a utopian community. The Sacrament straddles the line between being trailblazing genre cinema and exploitative insolence. What one takes away from Ti Wests new film The Sacrament depends largely upon expectations. West has developed a reputation. His previous directorial jobs have included films such as Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, The Innkeepers and The House of the Devil all works firmly rooted in traditional horror. The Sacrament also happens to be co-produced by Eli Roth, another filmmaker customarily connected with the genre guilt by association. With those two names figuring heavily in promotional material marketing the film, horror aficionados might be expecting something a bit more conventional. But The Sacrament is anything but conventional. Wests film employs a crafty variation on the found-footage technique, introducing a group of documentary filmmakers as his protagonists. As the film opens, a block of text appears explaining that the enterprise behind the subsequent footage, Vice, is a New York City based multimedia company that is known for covering provocative and controversial stories usually overlooked by the mainstream media. The introduction also states that the company utilizes a style of filmmaking called immersionism. West didnt fabricate this part: Vice Media Inc. actually exists. The real company is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Its Facebook page describes Vice as a global media channel focusing on investigative journalism and enlightening videos about everything from world news, travel, art, drugs, politics, sports, fashion, sex, and super cute animals. Obviously, Wests faux documentarians are fictitious as is the scenario into which he hurls his unfortunate characters. Actually the scenario isnt exactly invented, either. The tragic, true-life subject matter upon which the story is loosely based is one of the most gruesome episodes in contemporary history. Most audience members will recognize the allusions as the film progresses. In the opening clips, Patrick (Kentucker Audley), one of the companys photographers, explains that his sister Caroline (Amy Seimetz) has joined a utopian community. Concerned for her welfare, he decides to try to find her and Vice agrees to accompany him on the journey, expecting to find a hippie commune that would make perfect subject matter for a documentary. A few scenes later, a helicopter drops them off in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country. A truck transports them through two kilometers of forest to the compound. On the trip in, menacing gentlemen with big guns demand that the crew stop filming. Eventually, they arrive at Eden Parish, a community led by a shadowy figure called Father. Father speaks sporadically over a loudspeaker, addressing the residents of the community as his children. Initially, everyone the documentarians interview claim Eden Parish is exactly as advertised: a selfsustained rural utopia, comprised of nearly 200 members who consider the outside world sinful. After Sam (AJ Bowen) interviews Father, the situation quickly deteriorates. The film crew finds itself in a race against time to learn the truth and escape to notify the outside world whats really happening in Eden Parish. After a long, slow boil, once the violence erupts, the body count climbs swiftly and mercilessly. The third act is brutal and stomach-turning and ghastly. What makes it far more effective than any blooddrenched, third-rate slasher flick is that the events depicted are devastatingly analogous to the aforementioned historic event. In fact, the story is so reminiscent, it sometimes feels a bit inappropriate. My goal was to create an elevated genre film that examines the last days in the life of a religious cult, West wrote in his directors notes, included in the press kit provided by Magnet Releasing. It is rare to find films like these that are more than just cheap thrills aimed at the lowest common denominator. It was important to me not to portray these characters as mindless, psychotic cult members, but as relatable real people who, for many reasons, chose an alternative, and controversial path for their lives. I hope to have created a film that is both scary and socially relevant, one that provokes an audience to think deeply about its content. The Sacrament is far from perfect. Mediocre performances from some members of the ensemble cast conspire with a script that isnt always rational. Some characters are prone to blatantly illogical actions. Some dialogue is exasperatingly transparent. Joe Swanberg, for instance, who portrays Jake, a cameraman, is forced to utter an absurd line about the importance of delivering the footage to the outside world even if he doesnt survive this, while hes being chased through the woods by those menacing gentlemen with big guns. Still, West has crafted something quite unique in this progressive film. Gene Jones unsettling performance as Father is one of the highlights of the film. The excruciating crescendo is difficult to endure but it is unquestionably provocative and powerful. The Sacrament transcends horror, delivering a suspenseful, pertinent tale about the dangers of fanaticism along with an astute warning about the unintended role the media can potentially play in sparking violence simply by filming unpredictable events. As The Sacrament is opening in limited release June 6, it may not appear in any Tampa Bay area theaters any time soon. Those interested in checking out this film can rent it now On Demand, on iTunes and on Amazon Instant Video. Spoiler alert: For those unfamiliar with the historical event referenced in this review, the film alludes to the 1978 Jonestown massacre involving Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple. West updates that story, transferring it to the modern era, and inserts the documentary film crew as a means to chronicle the events. The Jonestown incident was dramatized previously in the 1980 television miniseries Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones starring Powers Boothe, Ned Beatty and James Earl Jones. Boothe won the 1980 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Special for his portrayal in the film.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 the day of the show. Call 813-971-0666 or visit www.skip perssmokehouse.com. Alligator Records describes Birchwood as a guitar and lap-steel-playing bundle of pure energy who delivers his original songs with a revival tent preachers fervor and a natural storytellers charisma. Birchwood plays high-octane blues, deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute. The Florida native delivers his signature sound with true passion and honest emotion. Birchwood was born in 1985 in Orlando. According to an artist biography provided by Alligator Records, he first picked up a guitar at age 13. A natural, it was no time before he became exceedingly proficient at mimicking what he heard on the radio. But what he was hearing on the radio didnt inspire him. The 1990s music scene saturated with grunge rock, hip-hop and metal wasnt Birchwoods cup of tea. He quickly grew bored playing contemporary tunes. Then he discovered Jimi Hendrix. By 17, Birchwood was deep into the blues, listening to Albert King, Freddie King, Albert Collins, Muddy Waters, Lightnin Hopkins and especially Buddy Guy. As his guitar proficiency grew, a friend told him that his neighbor was a blues guitarist and had a band. The 19-year-old Selwyn went over to check it out and jam. The guitar-playing neighbor turned out to be the Texas-born blues legend Sonny Rhodes, who was instantly impressed with the enthusiastic young guitar slinger. Within one months time, Rhodes asked Birchwood to pack his bags and join him on the road. It was an incredible experience for Birchwood, as Rhodes took the youngster under his wing, not only teaching him guitar and lap steel, but also how to conduct business, how to run a band, and how to reach an audience. When the time came, Rhodes insisted Birchwood go to college. He assured the rising star that he would always hold the guitar spot in his band open for Birchwood whenever he was available. It was a win-win situation, as Birchwood through hard work and scholarships received his MBA from The University of Tampa. Combining the musical lessons learned from Rhodes and his business acumen, Birchwood, now living in Tampa, formed the current version of The Selwyn Birchwood Band in 2010. In 2011 the self-released FL Boy helped the band land gigs outside of their Tampa home, where they were becoming local heroes. Birchwood and his band won their way to spots at the 2012 and 2013 International Blues Challenges in Memphis. In 2013, Birchwood won the world-renowned International Blues Challenge, beating out 125 other bands from the United States and abroad. He also took home the Albert King Guitarist Of The Year Award. The Selwyn Birchwood Band has been touring non-stop since winning the IBC. The band has performed at festivals including The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, Springing Te Blues Festival, The Tampa Bay Blues Festival, The North Atlantic Blues Festival, The King Biscuit Blues Festival as well as on The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. Birchwood has opened for major blues stars including Robert Cray and Buddy Guy and has shared the stage with another friend and teacher, Joe Louis Walker. Birchwood recently had the opportunity, when performing in San Francisco, to bring his friend and mentor Sonny Rhodes on stage to sit in with his band. In March, Alligator Records president Bruce Iglauer announced he had offered Birchwood a contract. Birchwoods label debut, Dont Call No Ambulance, is set for release June 10. Alligator Records hails Dont Call No Ambulance as a fully realized vision of contemporary blues. Birchwoods original songs range from raucous romps to hill country stomps, from searing, serious slow blues to modern blues rock. Between his uninhibited sense of fun and adventure and his seriousas-a-heart-attack musicianship, Dont Call No Ambulance is a window into the future of the blues. All originals and no filler, Birchwood said in a press release promoting the album release. Its that genuineness of emotion in the songs that people can hear. With the release of Dont Call No Ambulance, Birchwood has taken his first step onto the world stage, bringing a new wave of blues to a new generation of blues fans. If I can play my music, travel the world, bring happiness to people, then Im blessed and happy, he said. Its like Sonny always told me, If you follow your heart, youll always get what you want. Birchwood will celebrate the release of Dont Call No Ambulance with his June 6 performance at Skippers Smokehouse in Tampa. On stage, Birchwood possesses an uncanny ability to win over an audience any audience. With his warm, magnetic personality, Birchwood is as down-to-earth as his music is fun, thought-provoking and vital. Theres nothing Id rather be doing than playing the blues, he said in a press release from Alligator Records. And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance. TC Carr & Bolts of Blue will open the show. For information about the performance, visit www.skip perssmokehouse.com.

Last March, Rio 2 audiences got the first look at the initial Dolphin Tale 2 movie trailer, and the first official movie poster has now been released. Looking ahead, on June 13, the second Dolphin Tale 2 trailer will be released with How to Train Your Dragon 2. Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainments Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale. The film reunites the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Austin Stowell, and, of course, the remarkable dolphin Winter as herself. Charles Martin Smith, who directed Dolphin Tale, wrote the sequel and is again at the helm.About the sequelIt has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winters surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only pool-mate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. Reprising their roles, Kristofferson plays Clays father, Reed; Zuehlsdorff is Clays teenage daughter, Hazel; Judd returns as Sawyers mom, Lorraine; and Stowell plays Sawyers cousin, Kyle. Champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who herself has been an example of courage, appears as herself in the film. Oscar nominees Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson are producing the film together with Alcon President of Worldwide Marketing, Richard Ingber, who brought the first project to the Company. Inspired by true events, Dolphin Tale 2 was filmed at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the nonprofit rescue and rehabilitation facility that Winter calls home. Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the film and has slated Dolphin Tale 2 for release beginning Sept. 19, 2014.About Clearwater Marine AquariumA 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Clearwater Marine Aquariums mission is to preserve marine life and the environment while inspiring the human spirit through leadership in education, research, rescue, rehabilitation and release. CMA is home to dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, stingrays, nurse sharks and more. Winter the dolphins story of survival and inspiration has touched millions of people around the world. Her documentary, Winter, the Dolphin That Can, is available at www.SeeWinter.com. The documentary takes viewers on an extraordinary journey through her rescue, fight to stay alive and extensive rehabilitation.
