Brent and Tori Thrower established the Rachel M. Thrower Memorial in 1999 as a result of their experience with the All Childrens Neonatal Intensive Care unit in May of that year. Their experience was traumatic; however, the dedication and compassion of the staff was very comforting during those times so they wanted to find a way to give back to such an incredible staff and organization and found a way to do so. Since 2004, Jotos Pizza has chosen to concentrate their charitable efforts in sponsoring an annual golf tournament to benefit All Childrens Hospital in the name of the Rachel M. Thrower Memorial. The Dough for the Kids Golf Classic was launched in May 2004. This year, Jotos Pizza and the Rachel M. Thrower Memorial is recognized as a Grand Donor for their level of giving to the All Childrens Hospital Foundation. This years event, held at Bardmoor Golf Club on May 1, raised $31,744. Jotos has donated a cumulative amount of $334,806 over the last 11 years. Jotos raises money for All ChildrensVIEWPOINTSTom GermondRetire and do what? Page 13A. City manager to retireAfter nearly 20 years, Frank Edmunds announces his last day will be Jan. 16, 2015 By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE During an emotional report to the City Council at its June 10 meeting, City Manager Frank Edmunds announced he will retire in six months. His last date on the job, after nearly 20 years as Seminoles city manager, will be Jan. 16, 2015. Edmunds became Seminoles first city manager in 1995 when the city changed the format of its government. Participation in local government service has been a great opportunity to serve others and in some ways make communities better, he said. I leave Seminole city government in a good place. With policy guidance from City Council, Seminole city government is financially sound, professional and enjoys the benefits of dedicated employees for a bright future. Edmunds, 63, said he has a grandson on the way and looks forward to spending more time with family without the daily stresses and challenges that are synonymous with local government management. Though his retirement in 2015 has been widely known, he still caught the councilors off guard with his announcement. Im speechless, said Councilor Bob Matthews, who was part of the 1995 City Council that initially hired Edmunds. Because this man has made our city and I apologize for the people who attack you, because ignorance is something you cant fix.Mayor Leslie Waters told Edmunds, Well, Mr. Edmunds youve given it a terrific run and yourfingerprints are everywhere in this city. Everywhere I look, everything, its Frank Edmunds suggestions guidance to the councils that have come before us.

Page 1B.Jersey Boys, Think Like a Man Too set to open this weekend Kids just being kids10th annual Tri If You Dare Kids Triathlon set for June 29 By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Running. Biking. Swimming. Sounds like most kids summer agenda. But the city of Seminoles 10th annual Tri If You Dare Kids Triathlon, set for Sunday, June 29, takes these fun activities to the next level and puts their skills to the test. Whats great is these are all the things kids already do, said Jim Sheets, race director. Its kids just being kids. What kid doesnt bike run or swim? This event really encourages success in the sport. Sheets founded Tri If You Dare, one of about 30 of its kind in the state, 10 years ago when he was still the citys recreation director. I started it back in 2005 just because its what I did, its my hobby, he said. Hes participated in triathlons since the late 1980s. Not knowing what to expect, he planned his first event for 150 kids. But he found that the athletic competition appealed to children because they already loved to bike, swim and run, and the event easily hit the 150 mark. Every year since, hes planned to accommodate 300 children and has sold out each time. Sheets left his post with the Recreation division in August 2012, when Becky Gunter took over. But he wanted to ensure Tri If You Dare continued and remains the events race director. Its been 10 years running, he said. Its got some history to it and its very popular.St. Petersburg College receives funding for Bay Pines Learning CenterSEMINOLE St. Petersburg College will receive $2.5 million this year from the state to complete its Bay Pines Learning Center, a hands-on science learning complex adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway in Pinellas County. The funding was included in Floridas $77 billion budget, which the Florida Legislature passed May 2 and Gov. Rick Scott signed earlier this month. The Learning Center will provide undergraduate research opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) for students, professional development for faculty and teachers, and an engaging outlet for the community to interact with and participate in science. This will be a completely new environment for studying environmental and marine science, said John Chapin, dean of Natural Science at SPC. This environment will get people excited about science. Its designed to raise enthusiasm about the natural world and further studies in science, not just among our students, but all students, including middle and high schoolers and other college students. The project received $2.5 million from the legislature last year, which helped cover planning and permitting. The $5 million project will eventually include: A traditional classroom building that can be divided into two rooms. Each classroom space will support both class and laboratory activities. A building to house ongoing, independent student research projects. A multi-purpose building with capacity for 100 participants. Facilities also will include a docking area for small boats, a terrace, and an area with saltwater tanks for unloading and cleaning specimens. The center will better prepare teachers in STEM areas by offering certificates, in-service training, and summer institutes to teachers, teaching assistants and administrators. It also aims to increase scientific literacy and life-long learning in Pinellas to repair Veterans Services By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners promised veterans Feb. 5, 2013, that staff would solve all the problems caused by a reorganization of its Health and Human Services Department. The intent of reorganization had been to make it easier for veterans to receive service by providing more locations while saving the county money through shared administrative and support staff. Local veterans insisted that the plan wasnt working. They attended commission meetings for months prior to that February meeting, voicing their problems. Staff kept telling commissioners that it was all a misunderstanding and that everything would be fine once the plan was fully implemented. But, the veterans refused to be deferred. They filled the commissions assembly room Jan. 29, 2013, accompanied by representatives from the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs. At the end of that meeting, commissioners finally conceded that the problem likely could be traced to taking budget cuts too far. During the meeting, former Health and Human Services director Gwendolyn Warren, who lost her job about the same time the commission fired former County Administrator Bob LaSala in April, explained that the changes were made to ensure her department was operating at maximum efficiency in providing core services. Veterans Services and resources devoted to providing services to homeless veterans had been combined to improve efficiency. The office that had historically served veterans seeking assistance in filing claims was closed and moved into a nearby office that served all Health and Human Services clients. However, by law, a certified Veterans Services officer must assist veterans looking to apply for services available to them and those needing to file claims. During the reorganization, two VSO positions along with a senior VSO position became vacant. Mike Pendergrast, executive director of Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, explained to commissioners Jan. 29, 2013, why Warrens plan was flawed. He said VSOs had to be trained professionals. They are required to undergo annual training and provide 1,000 hours of support each year. They are required to keep up with new rules and laws that govern the claims process. He showed a significant decline in claims processed by the countys Veterans Services Department during the last four months of 2012 coinciding with the time the veterans began coming to commission meetings with their complaints.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, June 19, 2014science among students and community members. Officials hope that by offering summer camps for middle and high school students, a venue for science fairs, and citizen science projects, students and their families will connect with nature and science. STEM education is crucial, as those who work in these fields drive innovation, generate technological advances and play a key role in the growth and stability of the U.S. economy. Over the next 10 years, these areas are expected to create 1.2 million jobs, but American business owners are increasingly concerned about a shortage of qualified workers for them. A vast majority (80 percent) of jobs in the next decade will require technology skills. At the Bay Pines Learning Center, SPC will collaborate with Admiral Farragut Academy, the city of Seminole, the Florida Institute of Oceanography, Pinellas County Schools and the U.S. Geological Society to bolster research activities, which have been shown to increase levels of engagement, success and degree completion. For Gunter, there was no question that shed continue the triathlon when she became recreation director. Its a well-rounded community event, she said. It draws out parents, children, businesses and even City Council members. Its a fun environment. Plus, she said, it fits with the Recreation Divisions motto. Get up, get in and get active. Sheets also coaches the citys Seminole Landsharks, which competes throughout the region and boasts two national champions. Will Stone, 10, was the 2013 USA Triathlon Florida State Champion and 2013 USA Triathlon National Champion. Katherine McClellan, 9, was the 2012 USA Triathlon National Champion. Tri If You Dare is open to all experience levels from experienced to beginners, from ages 5 to 15. You even see kids out there with their training wheels, Gunter said. Sheets hopes the event encourages healthy habits at an early age. Fitness is a lifestyle, he said. The triathlon takes place at Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex, 9100 113th St. N., Sunday, June 29, 7:15 a.m. Entry fee is $40 before June 22 and $50 after that date. Children 5 to 6 will run 1/4 mile, bike one mile and swim 25 yards. Children 7 to 10 will run 1/2 mile, bike two miles and swim 100 yards. Children 11 to 15 will run one mile, bike four miles and swim 150 yards. Sponsors include Clever Training Fitness & Technology, Publix and Bicycle Outfitters, which provides a free bike as a door prize. A Fitness Expo will be held the day before, Saturday, June 28, with Top Gun Triathlon Store, Swim Zone, Tri Kids Supply, Clever Training and Bicycle Outfitters.

KIDS TRIATHLON, from page 1A FRANK EDMUNDS, from page 1ASeveral councilors credited Edmunds with keeping the city financially stable during the recent recession. I think its highly unusual that during tough economic times and the extended recession that we had that Mr. Edmunds and his exemplary staff were able to not only keep us from failing economically, but flourishing for the most part, said Councilor John Counts. A lot of it is making those tough decisions, being able to read the tea leaves and also making sure hes got the right people in place. Waters added, I think our city is in terrific shape because of [his] leadership. I mean were fiscally in good shape. We havent had to go into debt. We dont raise millage rates and our fire pension is healthy, very healthy This is going to ripple across the community and rippling maybe a tsunami I should say for the next six months. Edmunds has also faced some criticism in recent years, most recently from Councilor Patricia Plantamura and City Clerk Rose Benoit on his handling of an alleged threat made against Plantamura by Community Development Director Mark Ely. While discussing a public information request Plantamura submitted, on May 1 Ely allegedly told Benoit that if the [City Council] could they would put a hit out on Council Woman Plantamura. Benoit told Plantamura about the comment by phone on May 7, and they filed a police report with the Pinellas Countys Sheriffs Office. Benoit also filed a complaint with the citys Human Resources Department on June 4. Ely has denied making the comment, and no criminal files were charged against him after police determined that he did not directly threaten either Plantamura or Benoit. Edmunds found out about the alleged incident on May 14 after Sheriffs Deputy Damian Peyinghaus came to see him and Ely at City Hall. At no time was my office made aware of the incident The process would typically be that when there is an incident that offends or disturbs an employee theyre encouraged to report it within three days, he said. Its unfortunate that Clerk Benoit and Councilor Plantamura elected to not make me aware of the alleged event. On June 6, Edmunds said he would look into Benoits complaint and could not provide a timeline for the investigation because it was so far out from the incident date. Benoit also offered to take a polygraph test at her own cost if necessary. But in a June 9 response to Benoits HR memo, he informed her that no further action would be taken on her complaint. You were not subjected to harassment, he wrote. You had a dispute with another employee and handled it inappropriately Law enforcement closed the case as solved non-criminal. As you were informed, you should have reported your concerns to me. He wouldnt comment on whether Ely or Benoit would be reprimanded. Plantamura is concerned by Edmunds handling of the incident. It seems that Manager Edmunds has not taken seriously what has been reported to Pinellas County law enforcement, she wrote in a June 17 email. I remain deeply disappointed in his minimization of the situation and his seeming lack of concern for personal and public safety in Seminole. She added, As we know, this case was closed by the Sheriffs office not because it was unfounded, but rather because the alleged threat made by Ely was not a direct threat to either the clerk or me. This does not mean that it did not happen. Manager Edmunds lack of action or even of concern for people who may have been victimized, demonstrates deeper problems within the office culture within the city of Seminole.

She explained that after the county filled its vacant positions, it would take six months for the new hires to complete training and start doing to job. County staffs action plan presented Feb. 5, 2013, was supposedly designed to fix the problem. Help would be provided until Pinellas could fill its vacant position and get trained staff. Hillsborough County offered to provide assistance by providing a VSO three days a week. FDVA agreed to provide an additional VSO, and a retired VSO agreed to volunteer 20 hours a week to help fill the void and clear the backlog. At the end of the meeting, then Commissioner Chair Ken Welch said, There was a clearly a communication issue. We need to eliminate the backlog and make sure the same problems dont happen again. Several veterans attended a June 10 budget work session to let commissioners know the countys Veterans Services Department was experiencing problems again. According to the Rev. Bob Swick, a Marine Corps veteran and chairman of the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, the county is down to 3.5 VSO positions, which is not nearly enough to serve the 95,000 veterans who call Pinellas home. He said the county needed at least nine. Warrens goal had been to provide five positions. Were back to where we were a few months ago, Swick said. He suggested asking Hillsborough County and the state to provide assistance again. He asked the commission to schedule a public meeting on the issue. Its in your power to show that this county does, in fact, care for its veterans or not, Swick said. Commissioner Chair Karen Seel said Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard and Assistant Administrator Bruce Moeller were working on the issue. I dont think that we well-served our veterans in the last 24 months, Woodard said. He said the commission had directed staff to do all we can to solve the problem. He said working with Moeller and Lynda Leedy, new director of Health and Community Services, a new action plan had been developed. Moeller said the county has budgeted for 5.5 VSO positions. Currently a manager and one VSO position are open. He said that currently it takes about 48 hours for staff to respond to phone calls and about a week to get an appointment. He said Human Resources staff was reviewing the requirements and pay of the managers position, which would be advertised soon. In addition, one shared employee would be returning to work full time with Veterans Services. Woodard said the commission had asked that an additional $150,000 be allocated to Veterans Services. He said staff was working on a plan to best allocate that money. Commissioner Norm Roche said $150,000 wasnt enough. He suggested allocating $500,000. Commissioner John Morroni agreed. $150,000 is not enough, he said. Welch is concerned that a problem the commission believed had been solved last year had returned. He wants staff to come up with an VETERANS SERVICES, from page 1AScreenshot by SUZETTE PORTERThe Rev. Bob Swick, a Marine Corps veteran and chairman of the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, tells Pinellas County Commissioners June 10 about problems with its Veterans Services Department. exact number of positions and budget needed to provide adequate service. Woodard said staff was planning for five VSO and two administrative positions. He promised staff would do its due diligence and report the findings to the board. Seel suggested that staff look at the way other counties provide veterans services. The budget over the last eight years has been pretty static, she said. She said the commissions commitment to veterans had remained unchanged.

The email is perhaps another sign of the growing disagreement between commissioners over a possible sale of county-owned land in Pasco County. The commission continued to squabble over water rights and future needs at a June 10 budget work session. The latest source of contention is an email with the subject drinking water alert from Seminole resident Tom Rask, who is running for the District 6 seat on the county commission in the upcoming election. The body of Rasks message includes the headline, ALERT Your Drinking Water Is Endangered! It goes on to say, With no notice and no public input, Pinellas County is now seeking to sell our drinking water source. The drinking water wells are located on 12,500 acres in Pasco County and were acquired for good reason during the so-called water wars in decades past. Commissioner Janet Long recently and suddenly changed her mind on this critical issue and joined Commissioners Ken Welch, Susan Latvala and Charlie Justice in seeking to sell our land. Proponents of the sale say that the cash is needed, but such a onetime infusion of limited spending dollars is not sustainable and will not solve our ongoing fiscal challenges. The income is literally a drop in the bucket and for that we would lose control over our drinking water supply. Some have claimed we dont need this 12,500 acre water source because we have an agreement with the regional water authority (Tampa Bay Water). However, the 24-year water war between Florida, Georgia and Alabama shows that water agreements are not worth the paper they are written on. This 24-year war continues to this day.Back to the beginningCompared to more inland areas of the state, the small coastal peninsula that makes up Pinellas County has limitations on quantity and quality of its drinking water supply. Due to its geography, the county is dependent on outside sources. In 1970, wellfields located in Hillsborough and Pasco produced nearly 47 percent of the countys drinking water and by 1977, the dependency on outside sources had grown to nearly 53 percent. So-called water wars were common between Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough counties and even private landowners. Unregulated pumping of groundwater from the Florida Aquifer resulted in the death of cypress trees, loss of wetlands, ponds, lakes and other water bodies dependent on ground water. Local governments struggled to provide adequate supplies of drinking water to support the regions fast-growing population. To help satisfy Pinellas Countys needs, the Utilities Department purchased Crossbar Ranch in 1976. The ranch includes about 8,000 acres of land in central Pasco County located east of U.S. 41 and north of State Road 52. Seventeen active wellhead sites are located on 6.41 acres of the property. The wells began producing in 1980. Al-Bar Ranch and its 4,100 acres adjoining Crossbar was added to Utilities land portfolio in 1990. Utilities paid $11.1 million for both parcels. The county sold the wells and water rights on Crossbar in the mid1990s as part of a deal that created Tampa Bay Water. Pinellas also sold Tampa Bay Water its wellfields on the Eldridge Wilde property in 1998. In return, the Utilities Department received $140 million. Tampa Bay Water became a reality in 1998. The nonprofit utility supplies wholesale drinking water to Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. The utility uses a mix of groundwater, surface water and seawater to supply its member governments. As part of a 40-year agreement, Pinellas County cannot produce its own drinking water unless Tampa Bay Water fails to meet the longterm needs of the six member governments. The agreement also states that if for some reason Tampa Bay Water would cease to exist, which some officials say is highly unlikely, its assets would be divided among its members with each getting a portion of each asset.Todays water warPinellas County had been poised to sell the property to a state-run program called Florida Forever in 2008. The ranches were added to Florida Forevers acquisition list, but the recession and lack of funds put an end to the sale. Pasco County approached the county about buying the land in 2013, using Penny for Pasco funds dedicated to improving that countys environmental lands. On Aug. 13, 2013, county commissioners talked about Pasco Countys offer. Commissioners Janet Long, Norm Roche and Karen Seel, who was vice-chair at the time, were opposed to selling the land. Commission Chair Ken Welch spoke in favor of the sale as did Commissioner Susan Latvala, chairwoman of Tampa Bay Water, who has been a longtime proponent of selling the land. Commissioner John Morroni was absent. After a lengthy discussion, Long suggested that the commission visit the ranches before making a final decision, which they did. Pasco County made another bid for the ranches during the Jan. 28 regular commission meeting. The consensus was not to sell, but no official vote was taken. Selling the land came back before the commission Feb. 4 and after another lengthy discussion, the majority agreed it wasnt the time to sell the land. Latvala and Welch continued to support the sale. Commissioner Charlie Justice wanted to know what it was worth. He advocated asking Pasco County to pay for an appraisal. Long, Roche, Morroni and Seel strongly opposed giving up the property. The matter came back to the table during budget talks held off-camera in the commissioners conference room May 22. According to Roche, who is spearheading a call to action against the sale, Latvala suggested selling the land as a way to raise money to pay for the larger-than-expected budget requests coming in from constitutional officers. Long changed sides at that meeting, Roche said, creating a majority willing to breathe life back into a potential sale. As of June 14, minutes from that meeting had not been posted on the Clerk of the Courts website. Seel pointed out during the June 10 work session that even though the meeting took place outside of the commission assembly room, where it is streamed live on PCCTV, it was still open to the public. She said a reporter from the Tribune had attended. Roche began a public campaign against the potential sale almost immediately. He called a press conference, which also was attended by Morroni, on May 27. Some commissioners believe that Rasks email can be traced to Roches campaign to preserve county ownership of the land. People are in a panic about our water supply, Long said. County Attorney Jim Bennett said he is preparing a memo that explains how Tampa Bay Waters assets, which include wellfields and water rights on the Pasco County land, would be divided should the utility cease to exist. Most likely, owning the land wont give Pinellas a better chance of getting those wellfields or water rights, he said. Even if it did, the county would need a permit from Southwest Florida Water Management District to pump more water than is currently allowed to have enough to supply the need. Latvala said the county is very lucky to have what we have because we had a commission that many years ago looked to the future when we had no water within our borders to find a way to partner for our future and form Tampa Bay Water. Roche said his campaign to keep the land had nothing to do with Tampa Bay Water. I want Pinellas County to remain self-sufficient for generations to come, he said. I cant believe we would want those wells, Latvala said. We would want part of the resources to sustain us. We would want to own part of the desalination plant, reservoir or surface water plant. They are more sustainable than the wellfields. Seel said the controversy was generating many questions from the public. No fault implied or intended, but we voted at a work session by consensus, Seel said. She prefers that the matter be placed on a regular agenda, so we can walk through this together so all are clear and the information is disclosed. Commissioner Ken Welch agreed that technically Seel was right. It is not usually our way of working, he said. Still, he criticized Roches calling of a press conference. Im disappointed in that, he said. He also expressed concern about Rasks email that says drinking water is endangered. Thats scary to our citizens, he said. Latvala agreed. The conversation is scary, such a lack of understanding, she said. This has nothing to do with Tampa Bay Water, Roche repeated. Its about our future needs. Morroni said selling the land had been voted on in the past when the matter was on the agenda. We voted not to sell, he said. Now, guidance is given (to staff) to ask Pasco to get an appraisal, which is opposite to the vote given, he added. Its mainly a fact-finding mission, Long said, who insists more information is needed before another vote is taken. She also suggested that the commission ask county Communications to write an article explaining everything to the public. Welch said part of the information needed is what the land is worth. Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard said talking to Pasco County was on his to-do list. I have not talked to them, he said. I believe they are working on it. Seel agreed to add the matter to a regular meeting agenda as soon as information about the appraisal is available.

Last fall, PSTAs Route 78 was detoured from its normal routing along Betty Lane. Once detoured to Kings Highway, ridership along the detour jumped by more than 180 percent. In light of the increased ridership, along with numerous requests to make the routing permanent, PSTA officials were eager to comply and celebrated the successful change with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. Today is more than just celebrating increased ridership, its about being responsible to our community and riders, PSTA CEO Brad Miller said in a press release. We work extremely hard to listen to our customers and continually improve our service, so when we saw and heard how happy residents in this neighborhood were with the temporary routing, we knew we had to make it permanent. One of the things we strive to provide to our county is improved transportation options, said Clearwater City Council Member and PSTA Vice-Chair Bill Jonson. I look at the need to own a second car as one of the highest tax costs on many of our families, because they dont have transportation options other than driving. But when you look at a route like this, the second most productive in the system, and see people using it to get to work, school and other services they need, its clear that we have to find a way to fund operations, so buses run later than only 7:20 in the evening and thats what the Greenlight Pinellas Plan is all about. Clearwater Vice-Mayor Doreen Hock-DiPolito agreed and pointed out how the Greenlight Pinellas Plan is gaining popularity from younger generations. In fact, just last night, the Clearwater Young Professionals had an amazing turnout of their membership in support of the Greenlight Pinellas initiative, she said. Plus, we see older generations embracing transit as well by taking advantage of new and expanded services like the North County Connectors and Jolley Trolley. PSTA Leaders, along with a host of municipalities and business groups, say that ridership successes like the one celebrated June 11 will become frequent and countywide when the Greenlight Pinellas is approved by voters next fall. The Greenlight Pinellas initiative will be on the Nov. 4 ballot and will offer voters the chance to eliminate their transit property tax and instead fund improved public transportation with a 1 percent sales tax (not applied to groceries, medical items and limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase). Details of the plan and more can all be found at www.greenlightpinellas.com.

A recent study by Feeding America found that more than 20 percent of U.S. children are food-insecure, meaning they have insufficient access to nutritionally adequate food. In Pinellas County, that number rises to nearly 24 percent. During the school year, approximately 45,000 students in Pinellas County are eligible for free and reduced lunch. JWB has partnered with Pinellas County Schools Food Services to distribute 6,000 meals on Thursdays and Fridays at nine of the highest needs Summer Bridge elementary schools: Campbell Park, Fairmount Park, Lakewood, Melrose, New Heights, High Point, Belleair, Sandy Lane and Tarpon Springs. In addition, distribution of meals will be coordinated by the 6th Judicial Circuit Court at the Pinellas County Housing Authoritys Rainbow Village in Largo. Locations were chosen as they are located within the five geographical areas of need as identified by the Pinellas County Government and JWB via the Economic Impact of Poverty Study. JWB has committed $103,000 to the Summer Feeding Program, to ensure that more than 35,000 weekend meals can be distributed to food-insecure children across the county over the summer. The meals, provided by GA Food Services Inc., cost approximately $3 each. They are pre-packaged with a variety of shelf-sustainable foods, such as a juice box, milk, apple sauce, crackers and an easy-open protein option such as chili, beef stew or spaghetti and meatballs.

Expo.Fertilizer ban in effect through SeptemberThe partners of the Be Floridian fertilizer education campaign remind Pinellas County residents that they cant apply nitrogen or phosphorous to lawn and landscape plants from June through September. Garden centers in Pinellas County offer a variety of summer-safe yard products, most made by Florida companies, that will help you keep your landscape green and growing throughout our long, hot summer. These products comply fully with Pinellas Countys fertilizer ordinance ensuring that our efforts to maintain an attractive landscape dont pollute our ponds, lakes, bays and the Gulf of Mexico. True Floridians know better than to fertilize in the summer, when our frequent rains can wash fertilizer residues down storm drains and into our waters. Instead, they follow these Florida-friendly lawn care practices: Pump some iron. An application of iron, readily available at most garden centers, will keep your lawn green during the summer. Micro-size It. Apply micronutrients such as potassium and magnesium to keep your grass healthy. Look for fertilizers with as the first two numbers on the bag, such as 0-0-16. Get better dirt. Mix in composted cow or chicken manure, or homemade compost, to enrich the soil. Its like giving vitamins to your yard. Pick better plants. Buy plants adapted to Floridas hot, humid climate and plant them in the right place according to their sun and water needs. Theyll need less water, fertilizer and chemicals year-round. For more tips on how to Be Floridian, visit www.be floridian.org. For information on the Pinellas County Fertilizer Ordinance visit www.pinellascounty.org/environment/ watershed/fertilizer.htm.

According to Marine Unit deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Alisha Pearson-Garvey, 31, of New Port Richey suffered facial injuries when the personal watercraft she was operating crashed into the pontoon boat. Deputies said she turned a hard right in front of the pontoon and crashed head-on into the vessel. Pearson-Garvey was thrown off the personal watercraft. The PWC continued underneath the vessel becoming lodged in and breaking the pontoons outboard motor. Pearson-Garvey was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital in Hudson. The pontoon boat operator, Bernard Foigt, 36, of Trinity and the approximate 10 to 12 passengers aboard the vessel were not injured. Deputies said alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Tarpon Springs Fire Department also assisted at the scene.Man arrested for cooking meth on Gandy BeachST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a St. Petersburg man just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, June 14, on Gandy Beach for possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of listed chemicals. According to the sheriffs report, deputies noticed a suspicious vehicle, a dark colored Chevy Silverado, parked along the tree line of Gandy Beach. When the deputies made contact with the sole occupant, Charles J. Tapp, 24, they discovered several needles inside the truck. Deputies also observed Tapp placing items into a bag located in the back seat of the truck. Deputies also saw items indicating the vehicle was possibly being used to cook methamphetamine. Deputies called for assistance of narcotics detectives. Tapp was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, a controlled substance, and unlawful possession of pseudoephedrine and hydrochloric gas. During an interview, the suspect reportedly admitted to actively manufacturing methamphetamine. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bond was set at $12,000.St. Pete police officer arrested for DUISEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a St. Petersburg police officer about 12:33 a.m. Sunday, June 15, for DUI. Deputies conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of 102nd Avenue North and Thurston Groves Boulevard in Seminole after noticing a vehicle with the passenger-side headlight not functioning. When talking with the driver, deputies smelled alcohol. The driver identified himself as Jason B. Irvin, 43, an officer with the St. Petersburg Police Department. Deputies conducted a DUI investigation and Irvin was subsequently arrested for DUI.19-year-old arrested for burglaryPINELLAS PARK A 19-year-old with an extensive juvenile record was arrested about 3 a.m. Sunday, June 15, for four counts of vehicle burglary and violation of probation. Pinellas Park police responded to the 5800 block of 86th Avenue after receiving reports about a black male breaking into vehicles. As officers arrived in the area, the subject fled on foot. Police set up a perimeter and sent in a K-9 unit to find the man. The K-9 unit eventually found Brian Keith Harrington Jr. of Pinellas Park at a private residence in the 8800 block of 58th Way N. Harrington was inside a pickup truck parked in a driveway. He was taken into custody without incident. Based on police interviews with witnesses, Harrington was charged with four counts of vehicle burglary as well as violation of probation. More charges are expected. According to the police report, Harrington has an extensive juvenile record. As an adult, he has numerous arrests. He was on felony probation for seven burglary arrests prior to the June 15 arrest. Harrington is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail.Georgia man drowns off Clearwater BeachCLEARWATER A Georgia man on vacation drown Friday, June 13, while swimming off the northern part of Clearwater Beach, near Idlewild Street. A Clearwater police officer rescued a second swimmer. Officer Christian Zarra was on routine patrol on the beach about 6 p.m. when he was flagged down and told that there was a swimmer in the water having troubles, according to a police report. He saw and heard the man yelling for help and ran into the water to him. Zarra was able to pull the man, Donald Larry Duncan, 41, to the beach. Duncan was able to tell Zarra there was a second person who was having difficulties in the rough waters of the Gulf. Clearwater Fire & Rescue and the Coast Guard responded and found the body of the other man, Ryan Terry, 20, shortly thereafter. Duncan was taken to Morton Plant Hospital for treatment. Police said Francois St. Maurice, 60, a cardiologist from Montreal, happened to be in the area of the beach and assisted in treating Duncan. Another man, Michael Foster of Livonia, Michigan, helped fire department rescuers find Terrys body. Duncan and Terry worked together in Georgia. The two were in Florida on vacation with others and had been staying at a hotel in the Orlando area. Clearwater police encourage people to swim only in areas where the beach is staffed with lifeguards. Lifeguards can help keep an eye on swimmers and also can apprise them of potentially dangerous water conditions.Sheriffs Office seeks burglary suspectPinellas County Sheriffs detectives asked the public for help June 13 to find and identify a man who has entered as many as seven unlocked garages and taken items in Palm Harbor, Dunedin and unincorporated Clearwater.

Troopers said the crash occurred when Bande turned left in front of Georges vehicle. Georges vehicle then collided with the front of Bandes car and also struck the front of Hildebrands vehicle. Bande was transported to Mease Dunedin Hospital where he died. George and her passenger, Samuel Lee Woodard, 20, of Clearwater were transported to St. Josephs Hospital with serious injuries.

James Allan Angell, 51, of Largo was charged with felony battery. According to witnesses, Angell jumped out of a wooded lot and wrapped his arms around the child. The mother screamed the childs name, causing Angell to flee. Officer John Rice later found Angell and took him into custody. Detectives interviewed Angell, and he was charged with battery. Angell, though homeless, is known to stay at 704 Fourth Ave. NW., near Lake Villa Park, police reported.

Our association is professionally managed and the offices of our manager are located in Tarpon Springs. Is it permissible for the official records of the association to be maintained by the manager at its offices in Tarpon Springs? A: Section 718.111(12)(b) of the Florida Statutes provides that the official records of the association must be maintained within the State of Florida for at least seven (7) years. The records of the association must be made available to a unit owner within forty-five (45) miles of the condominium property or within the county in which the condominium property is located. The association may comply with the statutory provision by offering the option of making the official records available to a unit owner electronically via the Internet or by allowing the records to be viewed in electronic format on a computer screen and printed upon request. Q: My association recently adopted an amendment, which restricts unit leases to a term of no less than nine months. Is this permissible? A: I must assume that the adoption of the amendment was procedurally correct. Unless you specifically consented to the amendment, the amendment does not apply to you. However, at such time as you sell your unit, your buyer will be subject to the amendment. Section 718.110(13) of the Florida Statutes provides that an amendment prohibiting unit owners from renting their units or altering the duration of the rental term or specifying or limiting the number of times unit owners are entitled to rent their units during a specified period applies only to unit owners who consent to the amendment and unit owners who acquire title to their units after the effective date of the amendment. As stated earlier, unless you consented to the amendment, same does not apply to you. If you fail to vote or voted no, the amendment does not apply to you. Q: I recently rented my unit. The board of directors has now advised me that I am not entitled to use the swimming pool. Is this correct? A: When a unit is leased, the tenant has all of the use rights in the association property and those common elements otherwise readily available for use generally by unit owners. The unit owner does not have such rights except as a guest of the tenant. However, the tenant can waive the use rights and allow the unit owner to continue to enjoy the use rights. Unfortunately for you, the board of directors is correct in its interpretation of the Condominium Act. It is highly unlikely that you would be able to lease your unit and have your tenant waive his rights to use the recreational and other commonly used facilities of the condominium.

I have so many fond memories that I will cherish forever. My dad is someone who has always been there for me and someone I can always count on. I recently read an interesting statistic that was sad when it comes todays kids and their dads. According to the 2011 Census, one in three, or 24 million, American children are growing up in homes without their biological father. Even back when I was growing up, a lot of my friends didnt have their biological dad in their lives. There were various reasons. In elementary school, my best friends dad died when she was in first grade. In middle school, my good friends dad was serving in the military and was deployed most of the time. A close friend in high school didnt see her dad because he travelled nine months out of the year for work. One of my best friends is still searching for her father. A question I always wonder is: why am I so blessed to have had my dad in my life when others dont have their dads? When you think about it, we dont get to choose our parents. They are chosen for us. My dad has always played a big role in my life. He was always there for me and helped me become the person and parent I am today. He has always been supportive in everything I wanted to do. Even when I wasnt the best athlete or singer, my dad would always encourage me. My dad worked hard to make sure our family was provided for. We always had a roof over our heads and food on the table. My dad always told me how proud he was of me and that he loved me. Its interesting that I see those same qualities in my husband with our two girls. He gives them encouragement in everything they do. He tells them every day how much he loves them and how proud he is to be their dad. Ever since our children were babies, he has told them they can do and be anything they want to be. According to studies by Dr. David Popenoe, a father has a direct impact and brings positive benefits to his children. Kids with dads who take an active role in their life tend to get better grades in school and have better psychological wellbeing and social behavior. Its important to have that male influence for a child. Sometimes that male influence is another male father figure like a grandpa or uncle. These father figures are important too. Studies back up that having these father figures cut back on physiological and behavior problems. Thank you to all the men out there that are either fathers or taking on that role and making a difference in your childs life.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls, lives in Seminole.

In a press release, Hunt says he and his team of dedicated volunteers are looking for a permanent building in which to house a ministry that will offer an after school program, Friday night activities, regular Bible studies and special events. And everything, Hunt says, will be designed for middleschoolers. He knows the age group. As a youth minister, he has spent 39 years working with students in sixth through eighth grades. He and his wife have even written a book, Surviving the Tweenage Years. Though society has changed over the past 39 years, Hunt says that middle school kids still wrestle with the same basic issues. The middle school years are the years in which kids begin to pull away from their parents and establish their own identity, said Hunt in a press release. They are no longer children, but theyre not ready to be completely independent, either. We believe its crucial for kids to be surrounded by trustworthy adults who will teach them, guide them, and care about them while having fun with them. We believe its a sin to bore a kid. Unclub Ministries operates under the supervision of a seven-member board of directors, all of whom are local residents who care deeply about the students of Pinellas County. The group is kicking off the school year with an Unclub Retreat at Camp Kulaqua, located near High Springs, Florida. The three-day retreat will be held Aug. 1012 and transportation to and from camp will be provided.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, June 19, 2014When and if I retire, I certainly plan to smell the roses if there is something left of my dysfunctional sinuses. That said, I dont have a clue on how Ill spend my retirement, besides cursing at the obnoxious talking heads on Fox News, MSNBC and the other purveyors of misinformation. Throwing the TV Brick, a soft foam sports souvenir, at the television doesnt seem to work against the commentators. Nor the Tampa Bay Rays. If the Rays are not going to put their bats to good use, they should send me one. I might need it to smash my television one day. Back to the roses. I have some hobbies, such as waging chemical warfare on dust mites, but even my favorite pastimes sometimes lead me down the trail of monotony. Evening beach combing is a great diversion, but dj vu too often leaves its calling card. Recently, I saw some sea gulls fighting over a potato chip. They appeared to be the same birds I saw on a previous outing. And I could swear the great blue heron I passed on Redington Shores hasnt moved 10 feet in two weeks. Lazy beggar. And who are those little kids who keep leaving holes in the sand for me to trip over when I jog? Along those lines, I wonder how many wedding photos Ive appeared in taken on Redington Shores? Its kind of hard to run around a ceremony on the beach, especially when youre dodging holes in the sand. Thought about doing more volunteer work when I retire. Guess Ill have the time, but Im not so sure how I can help. Remember, Im the guy who wrote a column with the headline Help needed to change a light bulb. Ill have more time to give blood and get free movie passes, providing that eating butterladen theater popcorn doesnt knock me out of the blood donor pool. Love the stuff, but one kernel is lethal enough to kill a Redington Shores heron. Note to PETA: Ive never fed movie popcorn to a Redington Shores heron nor kids who leave holes on the beach. When and if I retire, I guess Ill continue to serve on my condominium board despite threats from unit owners to hang me. Thats reason number one hundred why Im pushing the board to get rid of all our oak trees. When and if I retire, theres always sports to fall back on. Enjoy going to UF college football and basketball games, but Im too cheap to get a good seat and always seem to end up in the Bob Uecker section. Im also too cheap to buy binoculars. And stadium popcorn is not nearly as good as the theaters. Speaking of being expensive, air fare might keep me grounded. Always planned on traveling abroad when I retire, but after talking to a neighbor, I might have to pack a tent to afford overseas travel. My neighbor is leaving soon for a Rhine River cruise trip. Her round-trip air fare to and from Amsterdam is $1,700. Ouch. Im going to have to give up more than just movie popcorn to afford that. Just as well. See one cathedral and youve seen them all. Gazing at the grim faces of bishops staring at me in paintings give me the willies. So much for Europe. Guess Ill do the Florida thing when I retire: travel locally and support the states economy. Dont need a passport for that, either. At least not yet. When and if I retire, I wont try to write a book. Writing it is only half the battle; marketing it is the coup de grce. In an ideal world, after you spend thousands of hours writing, rewriting and proofreading your book, you send it to a newspaper editor, who reviews it in a newspaper article and publicizes your booksigning event. In the real world, the editor who gets the book usually puts it aside and it ends up in the bottom drawer of a file cabinet in the bowels of the newsroom. If youre lucky, your book could be used as a bookend on a newsroom shelf where somebody might see it and donate it to the friends of the library. Guess I need retirement counseling. Must broaden my horizons. Filling holes in the beach sand is for the birds.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email tgermond@TBNweek ly.com.Its almost impossible for anyone to keep complete track of national and world news. But its still fun to stick ones toes into the swirling stream and watch the major events and trends passing by. For an hour or so each day I sit with my TV, remote in hand, and tap into a half-dozen news outlets. A capsule opportunity to review the days top news stories comes at 6:30 p.m., when CBS, ABC and NBC air what they believe are the biggies. Often their judgments coincide. As I click from one channel to the next I find that all three networks tend to agree on which event rates top coverage. Viewers should keep in mind that a primary concern of news networks is ratings, i.e., which story will pull in the most viewers. If Russia declared war on China, that event might play second fiddle to Tom Cruises decision to renounce Scientology and become a Mormon. During the day, I tend to boot up CNN more often than other news networks. You cant go wrong with an outfit whose chief anchor is named Wolf Blitzer. (I wish I had a glamorous first name like Wolf. Or Rock.) As I recall, Wolf hit the big time when western forces overwhelmed Kuwait. Today he shares the CNN limelight with Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, Gloria Borger, Dana Bash, Barbara Starr, Candy Crowley and other journalists who strike me as reliably middle of the road. A few weeks ago CNN did us all a big favor by removing a stuffy Brit anchor named Piers Morgan. I apologize to you if my comments in this column are more judgmental and subjective than they might otherwise be. Journalists should be measured mostly by their professional performance; the fact remains that TV news presentation has a show-biz element that cant be ignored. Another muddying factor is that, when an anchor pronounces the news, we dont know whether he/she is an experienced newsperson or simply a mouthpiece uttering words skillfully written off-camera by a bona fide news pro. Holding down the right corner of the TV news picture is Fox News, whose daily reports are dominated by one obvious fact: most of their people are really ticked off at that Muslim-Kenyan in the White House, and they wont be happy until hes blamed for everything from the 1929 stock market crash to the 1883 eruption of Krakatau. A daily Fox highlight is an afternoon talk show called The Five, in which a quintet of lesser-known lightweights laugh at their own jokes and trade thoughts on politics and the passing parade. If Fox is biased toward the conservative viewpoint, its no more unbalanced in its outlook than MSNBC, which leans far to the left. Its fun to watch the excitable Chris Matthews thought processes get ahead of his tongues ability to express them. Its also a pleasure to see the veteran Andrea Mitchell at work. She sets forth the news without tipping toward either the left or right. One of the few African-Americans youll see in a prominent slot giving the news is MSNBCs Joy Reid. Each night the knowledgeable and opinionated Rachel Maddow attempts to utter a greater number of words-per-hour than she did the night before. She often succeeds. Ive only recently discovered Al Jazeera America, but I like what I see. Im a fan of straightforward, unemotional reporting, and AJA seems to give that. People in oil-rich Qatar own it. Should we therefore expect to see Islamic viewpoints creep into the news reports? If so, I havent yet detected them. AJA has about 70 bureaus throughout the globe. One of their chief assets is Ray Suarez, formerly a first-class news reporter with PBS. The daily PBS New Hour will never win a Pulitzer for dramatic presentation of news, but it will leave you with a sense of grasping each days significant happenings. In PBSs early history, Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer set a tone of thoughtful, dispassionate discussion of news events. Judy Woodruff, Gwen Ifill and Margaret Warner have carried on that tradition. Over at the British Broadcasting Company, Catty Cay and her colleagues render the news in the most calm and collected manner imaginable. Some anchors and newsreaders are obviously intent on selling their own personalities, as well as the daily news. At BBC, thats not the case. Their staffers dont much care whether or not their viewers love them. Its the news that matters, not the charm ratings. Speaking of charm, its gratifying to see that many, if not most, of the persons delivering the news today are women. There may still be a glass ceiling for women in todays newsgathering, but if so it seems to be cracking.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Tom Germond New folks, minds and ideas needed in SeminoleEditor: Thanks to Tiffany Razzano and the Seminole Beacon for the interesting and illuminating article Investigation underway. It is refreshing when the free press brings light to such matters as this. Instead of feeding us the usual company line as so many lesser reporters are inclined to do. Our free press was conceived with the notion that it be ever vigilant of government and expose these scandals. This administration has had more than its share of scandals. It is said that most members of the City Council are puppets for the administration. Mere bobble-heads that simply advance the agenda given to them. Rarely oppose any agenda item and vigorously defend the status quo. My friends we as citizens seek an honest and open local government, but the question is are we getting what we paid for. Historically folks step down during a scandal for good reason. We are told this city manager will do so soon. Why now? With the city in poor shape given the demise of our local mall, and a proposed new park project in disarray. He should take this mayor, Leslie Waters, and Bob Matthews with him. Matthews is the longest sitting councilor, who hired this manager, and supporter of the status quo. So, many thanks to Councilor Plantamura and Clerk Benoit for bringing this matter to light. This November as seats come up for election, let us bring in some new folks, with fresh minds and new ideas, and let us move our city forward. And move away from the status quo, which has been the case for way too long now. Tom Christy SeminoleSave a historic treasureEditor: There has been in the past a lot of misinformation regarding the hotel. It has been stated that the hotel is too far gone to save and this is wrong. Several high level, certified architects have evaluated the hotel and find that the bones are solid. It was built with the type of pine that eventually turns to stone. It has also been in print over and over that the RPD, folks who live on the property, fully support demolition and condo replacement. This is also not true. The board has expressed its views, not ours. I think it is noteworthy that two residents of the property have joined in the second lawsuit to save the hotel and many of the folks living here, as we do, feel the same way. There is a website to donate to the saving of the hotel and we would urge all those in favor of saving historic treasures, for the next generation to enjoy, to visit the website, http://igg.me/at/friendsofthebelle viewbiltmorelegalfund/x/6500159 Karmen & T.C. Hayes BelleairWrong direction on IRB intersectionRe: Work on busy IRB intersection may begin December, Belleair Bee, June 11Editor: A couple of thoughts on the recent article about improvements to Gulf Boulevard and the issue of cigarette butts on the beach. Taking out the turning lane on Walsingham Boulevard leading into Gulf is an awful idea. This will back up traffic for no reason. Can we not install a light like some of the intersections on East/West Bay that restrict turning when a pedestrian pushes the crosswalk button? This would fall into the common sense category for a solution much unlike the solution that completely changes the entire intersection and does not allow turning on red. Lets not create unnecessary traffic backup when there is another solution that is both cheaper and more efficient for everyone. Secondly, on the issue of cigarette butts on IRB, I dont see how charging for parking would be a solution to the cigarette-butt problem. These things are completely unrelated. I believe a solution would be to restrict smoking on the beach altogether. I agree that the cigarette butts are a problem but there is no way police officers will be able to regulate this. They will be able to watch for people smoking. I also am tired of smelling the smoke that inevitably blows our way. Thank you. Brooke Litton Belleair BeachLegal immigrants welcome, not illegal aliensRe: Group calls for drivers licenses for everyone, June 13Editor: This is in response to the article on people requesting that undocumented immigrants be able to receive a drivers license. I have no problem with immigrants having a license; they are here legally. An undocumented immigrant is another word for an illegal alien, and I do have a problem with them having a license. First of all, they are not here legally so why should they have paperwork that would recognize them as such? Our streets will not be safer because they have a license; many people who have legal licensure are bad drivers. The fact that an illegal alien is worried about being deported if pulled over while driving illegally is not a reason to give them a license. My 26-year-old son was killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien. He had been arrested 23 times and never deported. I guess the authorities didnt want to do the paperwork either. Most of his prior arrests were for assault and battery but one was for giving a false drivers license to a police officer. Yes, you guessed it. He then continued to drive and, because he wasnt deported, he went out and got drunk and proceeded to hit my sons car, a VW Jetta, at 90 mph with his friends F150 pickup truck (another illegal alien). Obviously they were not insured, not that it would bring my son back. If you begin by breaking the law you will continue to do so. We might also consider that the next move would be to allow them to vote in our elections because they now have a legal ID, a drivers license, and an address. One thing will lead to another and the state of Florida will now have a huge mess at the polls. If you wish to live in the United States you are always welcome but come here as a legal immigrant, not an illegal alien. It needs to be done the proper way. I personally am very tired of changing rules and lowering our standards so that others will be happy. The tail has to stop wagging the dog. The law is the law; begin as you wish to continue. If you start out on the correct foot then you will have your proper documentation and there will be no problem. There is no such thing as an undocumented immigrant. You are either an immigrant or an illegal alien, without documentation. Hence, no drivers license.

Scholarship winners namedCollege-sponsored Merit Scholarship winners were announced recently. The winners are part of the distinguished group of about 8,000 high school seniors who will receive National Merit Scholarships for college undergraduate study worth over $35 million. About 1.5 million juniors in some 22,000 high schools entered the 2014 National Merit Scholarship competition when they took the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. Last fall, approximately 16,000 Semifinalists were named on a state representational basis in numbers proportional to each states percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors. Semifinalists were the highest-scoring program entrants in each state and represented less than 1 percent of the nations seniors. To compete for Merit Scholarship awards, semifinalists first had to advance to the finalist level of the competition by fulfilling additional requirements. Each semifinalist was asked to submit a detailed scholarship application, which included writing an essay and providing information about extracurricular activities, awards, and leadership positions. Semifinalists also had to have an outstanding academic record, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, and earn SAT scores that confirmed the qualifying test performance. College-sponsored National Merit Scholarship winners in Pinellas include the following individuals: Alexander Robert Dolan of Largo; Seminole High School National Merit University of Oklahoma Scholarship Emma M. Freeman of Palm Harbor; Palm Harbor University High School National Merit University of Arizona Scholarship Natalie Wilson of Palm Harbor; Palm Harbor University High School National Merit University of Central Florida Scholarship Benjamin G.

Finally, we can say goodbye to that annoying onshore wind and welcome back our normal east wind flow. Sloppy seas and thunderstorms moving in off the Gulf left few options this past week. Tarpon were pretty much off the hit list all together and along with it went some pretty good near shore trout fishing. However, redfish and snook remained targetable, and at certain parts of the tides the fishing has been really good. Working the higher portion of the incoming tide along mangrove shorelines in many of the no-motor zone areas, we were successful at targeting upper slot redfish with many over slot fish mixed in the entire full moon phase. Summer high tides will have the redfish pushing well under the trees as soon as the water gets high enough. Casting cut pinfish up in tight to the bushes is a productive way to lure the big fish out for a snack. Snook are staged up in the passes especially on the strong tides. Targeting beach shoals and cuts with free-lined or lightly weighted grass grunts or butterfish has accounted for some boss snook lately. Just let your baits rest down-tide on the sandy roll-offs and wait for the big fish to swim by and grab it. Weekend boat traffic all but shut this pattern down last weekend so you may want to target your snook first thing in the morning regardless of the tide. As long as its moving you have a chance at catching fish. Tarpon are back on the list this week. East winds will present the right conditions for spotting and setting up on migratory schools as they travel along area beaches. The schools will generally be moving north and often pretty fast, so anchoring in a travel lane is a great option. Live pinfish, pumpkinseeds and big pilchards will all work. Trout fishing has really gotten good as of late, near-shore structures including artificial reefs and jetties are potential hot spots. Freeline or lightly weight live pilchards along the rocks and it shouldnt take long to know whether they are there or not. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Polks last day on the job is July 4 after which he will move to Columbia, South Carolina, where he will take up a position with the State Fire Marshals Office. Polk has been chief at Pinellas Suncoast for the past 3 1/2 years. Prior to that he worked with the state fire marshall in Columbia and now hes returning for a very good reason. My family never relocated when I came down here and weve been maintaining a long distance relationship ever since, he said. It came time to make a decision and it rested with faith and family. You can imagine the miles Ive travelled going back and forth all this time. Polk, 60, says this move is sort of a slow ending to his career. I will be working but Ill be winding down, he said. It isnt an issue of leaving this job to go to another job. In fact he says his job as Suncoast chief was a special one for him. It has been very fulfilling and very rewarding, he said. Every place Ive ever been has been educational. Here I have worked with a great group of people and weve made significant strides moving forward and keeping up with the dynamics of this business. At least one man says keeping up with those dynamics can be credited to Chief Polk. Father Bob Wagenseil served as chaplin of the fire district for the entire time Polk was chief. Wagenseil retired from the fire service when he retired as pastor of Calvary Episcopal Church last year. I would say through his patience and his great vision and good sense of humor have continued to keep us on top of the game as a professional and well-trained organization, he said. Not only that but morale has never been higher and that is very important. Wagenseil said Polk has a gift of being able to help people grow. We all build on the work of our predecessors, he said. He is leaving behind a good foundation for future growth. I can tell you he will be missed by every member of the department. Indian Shores Mayor Jim Lawrence, whose community is served by the Pinellas Suncoast Fire & Rescue District, agreed that Polk will be missed. He brought a real flavor of professionalism to the District, he said. Im sorry to see him go. Not only did I like him personally, but he was very professional. Lawrence said his community has been satisfied with the fire protection they get from Polks department. He says he speaks from firsthand knowledge. Response times are always much better than the county average, he said. I had a personal experience a couple of months ago. I came down with pneumonia and collapsed. My wife called 911 and within minutes they were at my door. They were very efficient and very professional. Polk said he cant take all the credit for the departments activities. The success rests with the entire team. This is a very excellent fire service, which provides a high level of service in a very cost-effective manner. The people in the District should be proud of it. Polk arrived as chief after a career that saw him and his family move about the country. I began my career in St. Petersburg, he said. Several years later I moved to Moline, Illinois, to be fire chief, then after four years I moved to Columbia to work for the state fire marshal. I stayed there for four years; then I operated my own fire safety business. I did that for seven years then I came to the beach. To hear him tell it, his job on the beach was not difficult because the department was in good shape when he took over. Any new set of eyes going into anything is going to see things that others didnt, he said. Everybody has a different take on how to run an organization. I made some minor modifications, some adjustments and tweaks. Once I got into my comfort zone and understood the history of the organization it all came together very nicely. The folks that were and are there were a big part of making it happen. The fire District covers from Indian Shores to Sand Key on the beach and inland the Oakhurst area of Seminole. There are two fire stations, one in Indian Rocks Beach and the other in Oakhurst, and there is a total staff of 38 people, 30 of whom are firefighters. From time to time there has been discussion that perhaps the Pinellas Suncoast Fire & Rescue District should be merged with a neighboring fire department such as Seminole or Largo. Polk says that is mostly just talk. The fire district organization is oftentimes a misunderstood concept, he said. Special districts are established by state law, there is no local form of government, including the county that can take it away or end it. Polk said that while some elected officials made some noise that it should be done, the real attack is against special districts. Special districts are the most efficient form of government, he said. That is because they only do one thing, the accountability is totally transparent. Any attempt to do away with a special district would be a very difficult thing to accomplish. All of that will become someone elses concern as Polk moves to Columbia, South Carolina to be with his family. He and his wife Kathryn have been married for 24 years and they have three adult children: a daughter who is married with two children, another daughter who is attending the University of South Carolina studying to be a pharmacist and a son who is a firefighter in Charleston, South Carolina. It isnt difficult to understand why Polk wants to be near his family and why he wants to move. The other reason is his faith, which he believes is guiding him through this next step in his life. Faith is very important to me. I try to the best of my ability to let it guide me in everything, he said. Im always looking for that inner spirit in my personal and professional life, it is very important.

Here and There Here and ThereProgram offers more accessible training for volunteersThe Guardian ad Litem Program in the Sixth Judicial Circuit, serving Pasco and Pinellas counties, has announced significant changes to its training program for volunteers. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are individuals from the community who are specially trained to advocate for an abused, neglected or abandoned child. The traditional training model consisted of 30 hours in a classroom, which was sometimes daunting for potential volunteers. I think this new training program will go a long way in making the opportunity to volunteer a reality for many people, said Circuit Director Donna Rasmussen. The training will now involve three phases consisting of some independent study materials, shortened classroom time and hands-on field experience under the mentorship of an experienced volunteer. This new training allows volunteers the opportunity to learn in a way that has more practical application, rather than learning everything they need to know in a classroom and then trying to apply it.

COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongoing quality improvement. This esteemed designation has been granted to only five other government entities in the state of Florida and to only 47 other government entities nationwide.

Tickets start at $25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Known for his vibrant pop/rock/soul mix and free-flowing vocal delivery, the acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician emerged as one of the biggest success stories in the music business in 2012. His lead single, Back Home, from his forthcoming second studio album was released earlier this year. The album will be released at the end of the summer. Grammer logged his 10,000 hours of practice on the streets of Los Angeles. With his car battery-powered amplifier and acoustic guitar in tow, Grammer managed to sing his way from the streets to the center of the music industry. From hustling street performer on Santa Monicas Third Street Promenade to Platinum-selling recording artist, it hasnt been that long since Grammer was discovered by Steve Greenberg and signed to SCurve Records. With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Grammer became the first male pop star to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles since John Mayer in 2002. Those two singles Keep Your Head Up and Fine By Me were certified Platinum and Gold, respectively, selling more than 1.5 million downloads combined. According to Grammers biography provided by the Mitch Schneider Organization, what followed over the next few years is an amazing success story. The singer-songwriter has gone on to sell more than 100,000 albums, play sold-out venues nationwide, perform onstage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, appear on an array of national TV shows, receive major song placements in film and TV, receive two BMI Pop Music Awards, grace the cover of national touring trade magazine Pollstar and present at their annual awards show, among many other accomplishments. While hard at work on his highly anticipated sophomore album titled Magazines or Novels, due out Aug. 5 on S-Curve Records, Grammer released Back Home, a gleefully anthemic track that illustrates his knack for writing infectious, relatable songs and his soaring voice. It also showcases the musicians growth since his last full-length release. On the new album, Grammer reinforces his place among elite male pop artists through honest reflections of the impressive ride hes been on during the past couple of years. I want this song to take as many people as possible back to a place, person or thing that reminds them of home: great friends, family, Dunkin Donuts, Pizza, Slurpees, beach trips, guy dance party, girl dance party, bathroom selfies you name it, Grammer said in a press release promoting the release of the single. Writing Back Home made me think of what a crazy and unbelievable journey Ive had the last three years. When I was on the road, home was a state of mind. When strangers sang my songs back to me that made me feel like I was at home. But when I started writing my second album, I actually got to return back to my home my lady, my other lady (my dog), my family, and friends. I played pick-up basketball games with old friends and just hung out all of it inspired this song. The singer-songwriter is the son of a Grammynominated childrens performer Red Grammer. In his youth, he often joined his dad on stage to sing, promoting his fierce ambition to succeed. His father instilled his work ethic and taught him to respect his audience. I saw what it took to cultivate an artistic career, Grammer said. By ninth grade, Grammer taught himself to write songs on his dads guitar, with a first group, Out of the Blue, which played his first original composition, Doorstep, at a battle of the bands contest. Hearing the 1998 Grammy-winning album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill proved to be a watershed moment for Grammer. In his artist biography, he said it shifted things inside of me and I loved it. Grammer also lists Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Common and Coldplay among his musical influences on his mix of hip-hop, acoustic singer/songwriters and piano rock. His self-titled S-Curve Records debut was the product of intensive, deliberate practice and a personable performance style that involved entertaining on the streets of Santa Monica with his car batterypowered amplifier and acoustic guitar. Songs from the upbeat Keep Your Head Up and the breezy Fine by Me, to the jubilant horns of The Pocket and the emotional Miss Me, found Grammer creating pop songs with both heartfelt, relatable lyrics and instantly hummable hooks. His new album, Magazines or Novels, will be released Tuesday, Aug. 5, on S-Curve Records. While I was writing this album I kept seeing magazine and newspaper stands with their constantly changing covers and headlines and thinkingPhoto courtesy of MITCH SCHNEIDER ORGANIZATIONFrom street performer to sold-out headlining tours, Andy Grammer brings his Back Home Summer Tour to the Tampa Bay area June 20 with one show at Clearwaters Capitol Theatre. how they come and go so fast, Grammer said. I had to write about 100 songs to get 13 I felt had something grounded and timeless about it. I dont know if I achieved my goal but I hope I was able to create songs that were timeless and not something that would come and go off the newsstands. I hope this collection of songs can have the staying power in someones life like a favorite novel or book. Grammer explained that his background singing on the streets helped him hone his performance style, and clued him in on audience expectations. The success of his debut album brought him to places he had dreamed of, but never expected to visit. Grammer hit the road June 10 for a national headlining tour. Im super excited to hit the road, Grammer said in a press release. Ive had the new music in my head for a while now and Im really looking forward to sharing it with bigger audiences. I feel like the new music is a little bit louder and a little bit softer, its going to take the show to the next level. Plus Ive been home way too long and I need to get back out on the road and hang with everybody. Grammers 28-date Back Home Summer Tour, featuring opening acts Andrew Ripp, Kate Voegele and Brendan James, gets underway June 10 in Phoenix, and includes a June 16 date at the Hollywood Bowl, where he will perform on a bill which includes Ed Sheeran, Demi Lovato and Colbie Caillat, and a show at New Yorks Irving Plaza on June 26 following his first nationally televised morning show performance of Back Home on Good Morning America that morning. I appreciate the opportunity to get in and move things around in people, he says. The best gigs take place when you can see the whole room has moved somewhere together. On June 20 at Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, the singer-songwriter will be taking Tampa Bay area audiences Back Home, a place where Grammer still lives in his heart, even when hes far from there.

The foursome Koz, Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot returns for another tour in 2014.

Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerd hall.com. When these four acclaimed saxophonists toured together last summer in support of the 2013 CD Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns, they looked at it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. As it turns out, the foursome had such a blast on the tour that they are happily obliging fans requests for a return of the Summer Horns. Koz and friends even received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album for Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns. Released last summer, the album was produced by Paul Brown (Al Jarreau, George Benson, June Tabor) and spent five weeks at No. 1 on Billboards Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. The albums first single, a rendition of Lennon and McCartneys Got To Get You Into My Life, spent seven weeks at No. 1 on Billboards Smooth Jazz chart and was nominated for a Soul Train award. According to a press release from Concord Music Group promoting the album release, Koz an eight-time Grammy nominee remembers a time when the summers lasted forever, and the most popular rock, R&B, soul and funk bands of the day were propelled by high-octane, richly arranged horn sections. From the late 1960s through the 1970s, bands like Sly & the Family Stone, Tower of Power, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears and other brassy juggernauts of the era ruled the airwaves and opened his young ears to the saxophones limitless possibilities as a solo instrument as well as a collaborative voice with the trumpet and trombone. This was our chance to honor that era of great horn sections with a big tip of our hat and say thank you to those who were responsible for it, said Koz on his website. I hope people feel the reverence that we all have for this music and the great bands that made it. To craft the album, Koz assembled three of his most talented and trusted colleagues. Albright, Elliot and Abair collaborated with Koz to revisit the golden age of powerful horn sections. Boasting new arrangements of classic songs from this period in the history of popular music, Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns showcased the talents of these four high-profile saxophonists. The album also features several other equally talented musicians and vocalists including guest appearances by trumpeter/flugelhornist Rick Braun, trombonist Brian Culbertson, and three seasoned vocalists: Michael McDonald, Jeffrey Osborne and Jonathan Butler. The first album I ever bought was Back To Oakland, the 1974 recording by Tower of Power, said Koz. Ive always been fascinated with that sound. There are few things in music that are as exciting as the energy that comes from a really tight horn section. Over the years, that sound has graced some of the greatest records of all time by bands like Sly & the Family Stone, Earth Wind & Fire, and so many others. Thats what Gerald, Richard, Mindi and I are recreating on this recording. Koz explained that the arrangers are just as important as the musicians on Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns. We were very lucky to have horn arrangers on this project who wrote charts for a lot of those landmark records that I remember, he said in a press release. That includes Greg Adams, who was the chief horn arranger for Tower of Power during its heyday, and Tom Scott, who is not only a fantastic saxophonist in his own right, but also wrote charts for Michael Jackson, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, and so many others. We also had Gordon Goodwin, who is more of a modern-day horn arranger with his own Big Phat Band. The passion and enthusiasm that Koz demonstrates on all fronts of his diverse career are evident in every note of Summer Horns. The track listing includes songs such as the upbeat and breezy Always There, a Ronnie Laws composition; a rendition of John Lennon and Paul McCartneys Got To Get You Into My Life that closely mirrors the arrangement laid down in the hit 1978 cover of the song by Earth Wind & Fire; Tower of Powers So Very Hard To Go featuring vocals by Michael McDonald; and Hot Fun in the Summertime, the 1969 hit for Sly & the Family Stone, which features a guest appearance by trombonist Brian Culbertson. Musical collaborations have become quite common these days, but never before have I been involved in a project as unique as Summer Horns, said Elliot. For me, what made this project so special was the blending of four distinct saxophones styles into one unique sound while still maintaining the individuality of each artist. Elliot, a Scotland-born, L.A.raised saxman, was still touring with Tower of Power when he released his debut album Trolltown in 1986. Embarking upon one of instrumental musics most dynamic and multifaceted careers, he has scored four No. 1 albums, including On The Town, Soul Embrace, After Dark and Jumpin Off as well as a growing number of No. 1 airplay singles. In addition to his participation Josh Groban, Adam Sandler, Keb Mo, Lalah Hathaway, Lee Ritenour, Teena Marie, John Tesh, Bobby Lyle, Jonathan Butler, Peter White, Rick Braun and Aerosmith. In a career that spans seven solo albums and countless collaborations in the studio and live on stage, Abair has made her mark on a broad stretch of the musical landscape that includes jazz, pop, rock, R&B, soul, funk and more. The powerhouse saxophonist/vocalist has made scores of friends along the way and earned the respect of topshelf artists representing every one of the aforementioned genres. In addition to her acclaimed body of solo work that includes 10 No. 1 radio hits and close to half a million albums sold, Abair was the featured saxophonist on the 2011 and 2012 seasons of American Idol. Her latest recording, Wild Heart, was released May 27 on Heads Up, a division of Concord Music Group. In crafting the album, Abair enlisted colleagues in rock and pop circles as collaborators to create something that stretches her beyond the contemporary instrumental groove that has characterized some of her earlier recordings. Wild Heart opens with the upbeat Amazing Game, a track co-written by Abair and Grammy-winning songwriter Jim Peterik, the latter a pop/rock veteran who penned the Ides of March hit single Vehicle in 1970, and later Survivors Eye of the Tiger in 1982. Amazing Game also features swaggering horn lines courtesy of Trombone Shorty. As busy as she is with her own new music, Abair found time to join Koz and friends to record Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns and she is more than happy to continue to contribute to the foursome by joining the Summer Horns tour. It was amazing to see a record emerge that maintained all of our individuality as players, yet really blended into this cohesive section, Abair said in a press release. I couldnt be prouder of this collaboration with Dave, Gerald and Richard. There are a lot of levels to this album, said Koz. Theres tremendous musicianship, and theres a lot of thought that went into the arrangements. But by the same token, its primarily meant to make the listener feel good. As the album nears its oneyear anniversary, the four acclaimed saxophonists are preparing to head out on their second summer tour together. The cross-country headline run will kick off on June 26 at The Florida Theatre in Jacksonville before heading on to the Tampa Bay area for the show at Ruth Eckerd Hall on June 27. These are songs of a certain era, and if you are of a certain age, youre going to listen to them and immediately recognize them, Koz said. Its meant to remind you of a time when that sound was everywhere. This was our chance to honor that era of great horn sections with a big tip of our hat and say thank you to those who were responsible for it. I hope people feel the reverence that we all have for this music and the great bands that made it. in all-star tours like Groovin For Grover and Jazz Attack, in the mid s he helped launch another of the genres annual franchises, the Guitars & Saxes tours, which he has participated in on and off ever since. At his peak, Elliot was doing more than 100 tour dates a year, but he has scaled it back as his family has grown to include five children over the years. Working with Dave, Mindi and Gerald was truly a pleasure, Elliot said. The combination of focus, commitment, fun and camaraderie made this an experience I will cherish forever. Albright is eager to take the music on the road again this summer. The idea of involving four different styles of playing into one blended unit was very intriguing to me, and the end result was wonderful, he said. The care, consideration and creativity employed in this effort was second to none. Im looking forward to sharing the stage with Dave, Mindi and Richard this summer. A native Californian, Albright grew up in South Central Los Angeles. After high school, he attended the University of Redlands where he received a bachelors degree in business management, minoring in music. Albrights self-produced music has established him as one of the most prominent contemporary jazz artists. Albright was one of the 10 featured saxophonists who performed at President Bill Clintons inauguration. He has sold more than 1,000,000 albums in the United States. For Abair, its all about the pride that comes with collaborating with talented peers. Imagine standing at a microphone shoulder-to-shoulder with three of your favorite saxophonists every day in the studio, she said. It was such an inspiring way to make a record, playing off each other and pushing each other to take chances musically. Abair originally from St. Petersburg has toured and/or recorded with dozens of artists, such as the Backstreet Boys, Duran Duran, Mandy Moore,Photo by GREG ALLEN/CONCORD MUSIC GROUPFrom left, Mindi Abair, Dave Koz, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot are touring again in support of the 2013 album Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns.

High winds can turn even the heaviest items into deadly projectiles that can break through your windows, doors and even walls. To prepare your yard: Properly prune trees and shrubs before any storms threaten. Do not leave piles of branches that can become missiles in high winds. Keep your gutters and down spouts clear and in good repair. Replace rock mulch with shredded bark. Bring in all yard items such as furniture, toys, bird baths, bird feeders and barbecue grills when a Hurricane Warning is issued. Do not drain your pool. Super chlorinate the water and turn off all electricity to the pool for the duration of the storm. If you are doing any home renovations that require digging, call 8-1-1 before you start. This free service will help you locate underground utilities before you damage them. Not only will it keep you safe, its the law!
