The bullfrog is the largest frog in North America and can reach a length of 8 inches. It is more often heard than seen with its deep baritone call that resembles a mooing cow, hence its name, and can be heard over a half mile away.

Aug. 26 primary not just for RepublicansNonpartisan races and local referendum also on the ballot By SUZETTE PORTERIn Pinellas County, registered Republicans have the most decisions to make during the Aug. 26 primary election, but Democrats and independents also have choices at the state and local level. Republicans and Democrats will pick their candidates to continue on to the November general election for governor and lieutenant governor and state representative. Republicans also will choose a candidate for state senator. Democrats will pick a candidate for attorney general. Locally, Republicans also will pick candidates for Districts 2 and 4 county commission races. District 2 is an at-large position and all eligible voters countywide can participate in that election. District 4 is a single member position and only voters in the district can participate. The commission race for District 6, also a single member position, is a Universal Primary. Only two candidates qualified and both are Republicans. However, per state law, all voters in the district, regardless of political affiliation will vote in a universal primary, since there is no candidate to run against in November. The winner of the primary will be the winner of the race. All registered voters also are eligible to vote Aug. 26 in nonpartisan elections, which include a Sixth Circuit judge race and school board positions in districts 2, 3, 4 and 6. A county referendum question also appears on the ballot. The last day to register to vote or change party affiliation is July 28. Mail ballots are scheduled to go out July 22. Early voting is set for Aug. 16-24. For more election information, visit www.votepinellas.com. For complete election coverage, visit www.TBNweek ly.com.

Council considers FY 2015 budget By TIFFANY RAZZANO SEMINOLE The city of Seminole is considering a proposed budget of $14,769,552 for Fiscal Year 2015, which begins Oct. 1. This is a slight increase over last years budget of $14,646,868. Mayor Leslie Waters, who joined the City Council in 2009, said the budget during her first year on council was around $18 million. Every year weve reduced it, she said at the citys July 10 budget workshop. So until we get things turned around, we certainly have proved that we can do more with less. Its not always easy and we prioritize. In six years [to go] from $18 to $14 million, [thats] something else. City Manager Frank Edmunds said the 2015 budget is balanced. It does budget to projected revenues, as we have for the past 19 years, he said. Weve always taken a conservative look to revenue. Its better to end the year with a surplus, if you will, or a fund balance, than not. Weve been able to do that again, as we have for 19 years. The countys property tax valuations for Seminole are anticipated to increase by 5.56 percent, the highest increase the area has seen in years, said Harry Kyne, the citys director of administration. This is a very positive thing, he said. The budget also maintains the current millage rate of 2.4793. The Franchise Utility taxes indicate a slight increase, with anticipation of a higher number when the Bay Pines construction project is completed, Kyne said. Meanwhile, the citys projected Revenue Sharing Sales tax saw a pretty big jump to 16.2 percent, he said. He also noted the funds the city receives from the county for providing fire rescue and EMS services to unincorporated areas will be $3,855,822 and $1,907,821, respectively. Edmunds said the main cost increases for the city in 2015 involve pension expenses. He also noted that the city only saw a 4.5 percent increase in healthcare costs because Kyne was able to negotiate Aetna from its original proposed 9.5 percent increase. The Fiscal Year 2015 budget can be viewed online at www.mysemi nole.com/fyb2.htmUniversal Primary to decide county commission District 6 winner By SUZETTE PORTERTom Rask is challenging incumbent John Morroni in the Aug. 26 universal primary, which will decide the winner of the District 6 County Commission seat. Republicans and Democrats who live in the district can vote in this election. District 6 stretches from east to west and along the beach and includes portions of Largo, St. Petersburg, Seminole and Pinellas Park, as well as St. Pete Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Madeira Beach and Treasure Island. Tampa Bay Newspapers sent out a candidate questionnaire to provide readers with information to assist them with their decisions. Candidates were asked to keep their answers as short as possible.About the candidatesMorroni, 59, resides in Treasure Island. He has lived in the county for 34 years. He is married to Ellen and has one son, Michael, age 23. He has served on the county commission since 2000 and served as a state representative from 1992 to 2000. He worked previously as a Realtor and in the banking industry. He graduated from Loyola University with a bachelors degree in history in 1977. His community service includes his service on the county commission, including two stints as chair, 2005 and 2012. He was elected chairman of the Pinellas County Legislative Delegation from 1993-1994. He spent two terms as state representative. Morronis campaign website is at www.mor roniforpinellas.com. Rask, 50, lives in Seminole. He has lived in the county for 24 years. He is married to Jennifer and they have two children, Erik, 14, and Isabel, 12. He owns Logical Sites Inc. and has been an investor into several start-up companies. He has a master of science in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota and a bachelor of science in materials science from Carnegie-Mellon University. Under the area for community service, Rask wrote, I have chosen to work in my own ways, not through groups. He lists several areas where he has been active, including a campaign to defeat the Greenlight Pinellas plan and the proposed sale of water well fields in Pasco County. He is working with other supporters to free a Pinellas County man, Michael Morgan, now serving life in prison for a crime many, including Rask, do not believe he committed. Rask said he also assists candidates running for office and has personally provided free housing, interest-free loans, rsum assistance and other help to those in need since 2008. Rasks website is at www.vote4rask.com. Why are you running? Morroni: I am running to protect our water resources, create a more efficient government, implement responsible transportation improvements, to preserve our environment and shoreline, and work to create sustainable jobs. Rask: Because we no longer have government for the people, we have government for special interests. The rot in Washington has reached Pinellas County. My opponents support of Greenlight Pinellas is evidence of exactly that. Our citizens deserve better. What do you hope to accomplish? Morroni: I want to see Pinellas County continue to grow jobs, protect our residents, including veterans and seniors, protect our environment, and run an efficient county government. Rask: I will continue to oppose bad policy proposals, and put forth good policy proposals instead. Also, I will survey voters in my district at my own expense to find out what their John Morroni Tom RaskNo millage increases set for Pinellas CountyScreenshot by SUZETTE PORTERInterim County Administrator Mark Woodard presents his budget proposal from fiscal year 2014-15 July 15. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER A sense of optimism filled the fifth floor assembly room of the County Courthouse in Clearwater July 15 as Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard presented his budget proposal for fiscal year 2014-15. Unlike past years, which left a feeling of gloom and doom, Woodards presentation was short and filled with positive news including that there will be no millage increases for the general fund, unincorporated county or emergency medical services. Millage rates are unchanged, Woodard said. Staff recommends that the general fund millage rate remain at 5.2755 mills; the Municipal Services Taxing Unit rate stay at 2.0857 mills, the same since 2008; and the rate for emergency medical services continues at 0.9158 mills. The millage rate for Dunedin Fire District will go down from 3.5525 to 2.9222 due to completion of the new fire station. Residents of East Lake will pay a new 0.25 mill tax to fund a recreation services district. The FY 2015 proposed budget is just over $1.92 billion an 8.4 percent increase over the revised FY 2014 budget. Enterprise capital projects are up $87.9 million, or 44 percent. General fund spending is up $14.4 million, or 2.5 percent. Woodard pointed out that excluding enterprise projects drops the budget increase over the current year to only 3.9 percent. Nearly $1.25 billion is budgeted for departments that report to the county administrator, an increase of $128.2 million, or 11.4 percent, See MILLAGE, page 7ACOMMUNITYNew meetup for artists kicks offOn Wednesday, July 30, at 6 p.m., the first in a series of free monthly cultural meetups comes to the Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave., in St. Petersburg, followed by a 7:30 p.m. happy hour at Green Bench Brewing Company, 1133 Baum Ave. N.

City Council rejects Greenlight Pinellas endorsementSEMINOLE At its July 8 meeting, the City Council voted 4-2 to reject an endorsement of Greenlight Pinellas. Councilors Patricia Plantamura and Jim Quinn voted in favor of the transit plan. The Greenlight Pinellas plan will expand the countys bus service and includes building a light-rail system between St. Petersburg and Clearwater. The referendum will be on the Nov. 4 ballot and if approved would increase the countys sales tax from 7 to 8 cents. Seven is high enough as it is, said Mayor Leslie Waters. If sales tax is increased itll be the highest in the state. Thats not a good marketing tool for Pinellas We all must look for the bigger picture. Vice Mayor Thom Barnhorn said Seminole lost several bus routes over the past several years including the one that goes to the beach because of a decline in ridership. The Greenlight Pinellas plan would only increase routes on Seminole Boulevard, he said. I cannot with good conscience say that all of my city supports this, he said. With all the emails I received and maybe we all got them, got barraged by them, I did not even receive one that said please do it. He added, I cannot, without an increase in service to our residents, justify doing this. Quinn said that Pinellas County could lead the state in improving its ineffective public transportation. Its for the benefit of the whole state of Florida, he said, which will see significant population increases in the coming decades. And if we dont change the system of transportation, if you think Malfunction Junction is bad now and with all the money thats spent on it doesnt change, it just gets worse, its going to get worse. We need to do something to improve the public transportation in the state of Florida and if we have to start in Pinellas County and get the rest of the state on board, thats my reason for supporting this program of increasing transportation. He added, If Florida doesnt get on board, were going to be in the dark ages on this. Councilor John Counts held an opposing view. We are on the front row of a typical example of government waste, he said. This is exciting because we are now seeing shortsighted liberalism in action, what happens when they think that if we throw a bunch of money at it, it will solve a problem [but really] create[s] a long-term burden on the backs of our tax payers. Why we are even entertaining a resolution for our government I dont know. Im flabbergasted were even considering this. Still, he said, This is a vote thats going to the people. We should not be taking a stand either way. Tiffany RazzanoTwo City Council seats openSEMINOLE Two City Council seats are open this election season.

Rose Benoit, city clerk, can be contacted at 391-0204, ext. 102 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.City Manager earns high marksSEMINOLE Mayor Leslie Waters announced at the July 8 City Council meeting that City Manager Frank Edmunds received an average score of 70 on his annual evaluation by City Council members. He received a score of 72 the highest rating he can achieve from Mayor Waters and Councilors Jim Quinn and Bob Matthews. Vice Mayor Barnhorn and Councilor John Counts gave him a score of 70, while Councilor Chris Burke gave him a score of 64. Councilor Patricia Plantamura did not submit an evaluation. From my corporate experience, said Mayor Waters, who spent many years working in human resources, this definitely exceeds expectations. Edmunds is set to retire in January 16, 2015. Tiffany RazzanoCity teams up with Seminole Historical SocietySEMINOLE Though its long been planned for the Seminole Historical Society to have space for a museum in the former City Hall building at City Park once its reconstructed, the City Council formally adopted the terms of this agreement at its July 8 meeting. The council unanimously approved resolution 04-2014, which found a public purpose associated with the groups occupancy within the planned Community Center. The council also unanimously approved a Memorandum of Understanding identifying the Seminole Historical Societys responsibilities associated with their occupancy within the building. The renovations to the building began earlier this month. The building should be completed by early 2015 and will include a Community Room that will seat close to 300 people and be available for rent, a Pinellas County Sheriffs Office station and city storage in addition to space for the Seminole Historical Society.

Expires 8/17/14 20% OFF concerns and views are. After hiring two consultants, Pinellas County does not seem any closer to solving the problem with funding for EMS. In your opinion, what should be done? Morroni: We are moving forward with the agreements, and the city of St. Petersburg has already signed on, this is a work in progress and we must continue to work with our city leaders and fire districts in Pinellas County. We must continue to watch our taxpayer dollars and millage rates to ensure responsible spending. Rask: For starters, I hope that the county under the new administrator will be more thoughtful in its negotiations. A high-level county employee (Bruce Moeller) was sent out to execute a strategy that I think only increased suspicion among stakeholders, and weakened the countys negotiating position. Based on what I know, I am for fire transport. We have a good system, but there is definitely room for cost savings and/or efficiency improvements. I know this because there are two fire stations close to my house and the county said that one could be closed without impacting public safety. The specifics of how we get there is a matter of negotiation. Pinellas County transit needs is Greenlight the right solution? Morroni: Yes. I supported putting the referendum on the ballot at the commission meeting last year. I now sit on the PSTA Board of Directors and like the bus route improvement segments. However, I do have concerns over the Penny for Pinellas program coming up in three years should this pass. Rask: Of course we need public transportation (transit) to serve those who either cant afford personal transportation, or cant use it due to medical conditions or other good reasons. However, we dont need more transit, and we especially dont need light rail. There is no need or demand for more transit. We also dont have the population density for light rail to work, we dont have population growth and we have a transportation revolution coming in the form of self-driving vehicles. In the very near future, your transit could be a self-driving vehicle. So Greenlight Pinellas is definitely not a forward-looking solution. PSTA is a poorly run and dysfunctional organization that uses tax dollars to advocate for more tax dollars. We need to fix it first before even talking about more taxes for PSTA. Greenlight Pinellas will especially hurt low income seniors and disabled veterans, who currently pay little or no tax to PSTA through their property tax bill because of special exemptions they receive. They will get no such exemptions on their sales tax. I have spent considerable time on making a website on this topic, see www.greenlightpinellasfacts.com (particularly the News & Links section). Land in Pasco County should it be sold or not and why? Morroni: I am extremely concerned about our water resources and I am 100 percent against selling the land at Cross Bar/El Bar Ranch. The reason is because we have no idea what the future holds if we sell the land back to Pasco County. Rask: This tract of land, which is slightly larger than the city of Largo, should absolutely not be sold. While these well fields dont cover all of our water needs, they provide more than enough drinking water. We need to have drinking water independence. Tampa Bay Water may or may not continue beyond its dissolution date of 2038, and in any event, we weaken our negotiating position by not retaining water independence. As just one example: Dunedin has chosen to retain water independence. Having lived under severe water shortage situations, I know what deprivations it brings. Even worse, if you get to the point where you have to truck in water, it gets very, very expensive. As mentioned above, one of my civic activities was a large email campaign to voters on this topic. Over 200 citizens wrote or called in expressing opposition to the sale of the land as a result of my email campaign, and only a few expressed support for selling the land. While New York City continually increases their water rights through land purchases, Pinellas County Commissioners seek to sell our well fields. Economic development is Pinellas headed in the right direction? Morroni: Yes, we are celebrating record tourism, our unemployment is lower than parts of Florida, and our property values are rising. However, we have more work to do. Rask: No. PCED (Pinellas County Economic Development) has become an organization that self-promotes, is deaf to the opinion of most businesses and spends a lot of time supporting bad policy initiatives like Greenlight Pinellas. Homelessness and poverty What is the best way to manage these issues? Morroni: Education and job search training. Access to job search tools and training such as technical training, rsum writing, and career search support centers are key. Those who have fallen through the cracks should be provided programs through state and local funding that allow them to become productive citizens. Rask: As you know, the County Health & Human Services Director was recently asked to resign. I would have to see what the next director proposes, as well as listen to PCSO (Pinellas County Sheriffs Office) and their views on the matter. We need statewide (perhaps nationwide) changes in how we handle mentally ill people, as well as recognition that we have different classes of homeless people. We have the mentally ill who are homeless, homeless working families, substance abusers, seasonal visitors who are homeless, etc. etc. As Commissioner Roche has pointed out: Pinellas County has become a homeless destination... much like San Francisco in the other bay area, I hasten to add. Some believe that governments role should be to provide only life and death necessities while others believe government should provide amenities that enhance quality of life. Whats your opinion? Morroni: Government should stay out of peoples lives as much as possible. Where needed, there is nothing wrong with government providing safe nets for seniors, veterans, and children in need. Rask: It depends on what you mean by enhanced quality of life. Does that mean a reinvigorating and pleasant city park that all can use, a Fourth of July Parade ... or does it mean free chocolate for everyone? Also, I am not aware that serious people have argued that governments role is to provide only life and death necessities. For example, roads and libraries are not life and death necessities, but government should be responsible for providing both. Most agree that being an able-bodied adult means providing for yourself. If everyone needs a handout, who is going to provide that handout? What if those providing dont want to provide the handout, and would rather receive one instead? We should take care that we do not create a situation where too many people want to ride the wagon and no wants to pull the wagon. In your opinion, what is the No. 1 problem the commission will face in the near future and what should be done about it? Morroni: We are currently going through the process of picking a new county administrator who will work with us in a cohesive manner, who gets out into the community, and who serves Pinellas County. Rask: The political process in our country has been taken over by special interests. Most of our county commissioners no longer serve the people, they serve special interests. Meaningful progress cannot be made on any public policy issues unless this issue is addressed first, and history shows us that change always begins at the local level. What makes you the best candidate? Morroni: I am proud and honored to have a wide coalition of support of more than 70 elected officials from all parties, our Pinellas Firefighters, and the Fraternal Order of Police. Public safety is a priority of mine and always has been. We must work with our local municipal leaders to ensure all residents of Pinellas County are protected. Because of experience, thorough understanding of the issues that face Pinellas and my record of service, I am best prepared to lead on the County Commission. Rask: My solid professional and educational background coupled with my civic engagement on public policy issues is what makes me the best candidate. I will not go along to get along, I will ask tough questions. Furthermore, my opponent only seems to have two suggestions: service cuts or higher taxes. My opponent John Morroni consistently votes for higher government spending and has trampled on the clearly expressed will of the people for eight-year term limits. In a 1996 referendum, 72 percent of Pinellas County voters voted in favor of eight-year term limits for county commissioners. Since that time, our county commission has spent your tax dollars fighting term limits in court. However, no matter what victories they achieve in court, they can never escape the clearly expressed will of the people as they expressed it in the 1996 referendum. Respect for the rule of law begins with putting the term limits into the county charter. So lets do that.To view all the candidates answers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

The money pays for functions ranging from the airport to solid waste, animal services to EMS and parks to public works. The $1.25 billion represents 64.9 percent of the total budget. Close to $315 million, or 16 percent of the total, will be doled out to the Constitutional Officers. The budgeted amount is an increase of $33.3 million from the current year. Woodard said the majority of the money $272 million, or 85.5 percent will go to the Sheriffs Office. Lastly, a group of other agencies will get a share of nearly $360 million a decrease of $12.5 million over the current year. This category includes functions ranging from internal service funds such as Business Technology Services and Risk Management to Human Resources, Court Support, including the Public Defender, State Attorney and Judiciary, as well as library services and recreation.Staffing levels going upAfter years of staffing cuts, FY 2015 will bring a modest increase in staffing with the most coming from a change in operations at the new 911 center. An increase of 13.6 full time positions that formerly were part of the Sheriffs budget will now be included at the county level. The 911 center in the new Public Safety Center should be operational by July 23. The budget calls for paychecks to go out to 5,042.4 employees next year. Of that number, 1,916.9 will report to the county administrator. Woodard said county staff would be comparable to 1987 levels. Constitutional Officers will employ 2,863.6 an increase of 4.1; court services, 40.3, a decrease of 2; and independent agencies will have 221.6 on the payroll, an increase of 0.4.Reasons for optimismWoodard said the budget proposal reflected a number of positive signs. Property values are improving, up 6.5 percent from the current year. The county is raking in record-setting bed tax collections, up 13 percent so far this year. St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport is reporting record-setting passenger traffic, up 23 percent. The Development Review Department has experienced a 160 percent increase in submissions of site plans. Building permits and inspections are up by 5 to 10 percent month-over-month for the past two years. Sales tax collections have increased by 4 percent compared to 2013. There is great cause for optimism, Woodard said. We know there are challenges. There will always be challenges. But one thing I know about this organization is that we face our challenges and we deal with them. One way staff is dealing is by doing things, he said. Weve unleashed our staff, he said. Staff is now engaging citizens in ways that have never been done before, he added. Work is ongoing to repair and strengthen partnerships with municipalities, EMS providers, healthy community partners, veterans services advocates and clients, Constitutional Officers and the business community. Woodard announced that $663,000 had been budgeted for Veterans Services the most ever. More money also was allocated for expansion of international trade. Relationships are key, he said. Woodard also is committed to growing our own talent and promoting from within. Were investing in our own people, he said. We need to embrace people with talent and passion or they will leave.Next stepsCommissioners will discuss the proposed budget during a work session on July 22 and will decide then whether to cancel a tentative date for another discussion on July 31. They must notify the property appraiser of the tentative millage rates for the Truth in Millage statements by Aug. 4. TRIM notices will be mailed Aug. 22. The first public hearing is scheduled on Sept. 11 with the final, deciding hearing on Sept. 23. Fiscal year 2015 begins Oct. 1. For a complete look at the budget and budget presentations, visit www.pinellascounty.org /budget/default.htm.Mission statementWoodard began his presentation by telling commissioners that he had reinstated a mission statement adopted by the county in the 1980s that reaffirms the commitment to progressive public policy, superior public service, courteous public contact, judicious exercise of authority and responsible management of public resources. The vision is to be the standard for public service in America, he said. MILLAGE, from page 1A County newsNew software improves court case managementCLEARWATER Flanked by other elected officials and Pinellas County technology experts, J. Thomas McGrady, chief judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit, recently announced the implementation of a new $10-million court case management system that is more userfriendly and efficient than the old one. The new software system, known as Odyssey, replaces CJIS, the acronym for the Consolidated Justice Information System, a mainframe system dating to the s whose technology eventually became obsolete, McGrady said. Odyssey went live over the weekend of July 11-14. With Odyssey, the major players in the court system including the State Attorney, the Public Defender, the Sheriff, and the Clerk of Courts will all be using the same system to create, use and manage court files, in an arrangement that will increase efficiency and save taxpayer dollars. In time, the public and the media will be able to view images of documents on their computers, reducing the need for trips they now make to various courthouses to accomplish the same tasks. Some official records can already be viewed online, but this will eventually be true of all documents that are public record, McGrady said. This is step one, McGrady told a group of journalists at the Pinellas County Justice Center on Monday, July 14. Its a big step toward a more open system. Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri praised Odyssey, saying it will help avoid the kind of mishap that occurred last year, when a misclassification of an inmate caused him to be housed with an accused murderer, who then proceeded to kill him. This Odyssey system will fix that, Gualtieri said. Theres a lot of examples where our internal processes will improve. CJIS was like an old car you couldnt find parts for anymore, See COUNTY NEWS, page 8A

Participating veterans are first evaluated. If appropriate, they are then treated for substance abuse, a mental illness, or both. Often, their families are brought in to help provide a support system. Among the community partners providing services for the initiative are the Veterans Administration; WestCare, a national nonprofit organization that focuses on treating mental illness and drug addictions; and Solutions Behavioral Healthcare Consultants, which also provides drug treatment services. Catholic Charities is also involved and has a program where well-adjusted veterans act as mentors, helping troubled ex-soldiers adjust to civilian life. The Pinellas County Ex-Offender ReEntry Coalition, which helps participating veterans secure employment, also participates. And through its Veterans Law Institute, Stetson University College of Law provides free legal advice. The average age of the clients served thus far is 43, but veterans as young as 25 and as old as 73 have been provided help. Roughly half were in stable living arrangements, with the remainder either homeless or staying in transition housing or in other peoples homes.Hazardous waste program recognizedCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys Small Quantity Generator Program has been honored as the 2014 SQG Program of the Year by the Florida chapter of the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association. The SQG Program of the Year Award recognizes the most outstanding or most improved Small Quantity Generator program in Florida over the past year. The Pinellas County program focuses on education and outreach, visiting businesses to inform them of their hazardous waste management regulatory requirements and verifying that they comply. Team members also develop and provide tools and resources to assist businesses in meeting and maintaining compliance. Pinellas Countys program is the youngest of the 50 state programs. It is only in its sixth year of existence, compared to the typical 15 to 20 years that the others have been in place. Presentation of the SQG Program of the Year Award will take place at the North American Hazardous Materials Management Associations national workshop in Orlando next month.

Started in 1970, the annual Achievement Award Program is a noncompetitive awards program that recognizes innovative county government programs in 21 different categories. It is very rewarding to have our financial transparency initiative be recognized in the community, as well as nationally, said Ken Burke, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller. It was my goal to ultimately set an example of what constitutes open government and thanks to the talented staff of the Clerks office, this initiative is empowering citizens with every click of a button. Spending in the Sunshine is a financial transparency website which goes beyond state standards and actually surpasses the level of transparency many governmental offices offer. It is centered on the publics right to open government and was designed to provide easy access to expenditures processed within Pinellas County government. Information is available on the clerks webpage, www.mypinellasclerk.org, through a tab titled Spending in the Sunshine. NACo is the only national organization that represents county governments in the United States. Founded in 1935, NACo assists Americas 3,069 counties in pursuing excellence in public service to produce healthy, vibrant, safe and resilient counties. For more information, visit www.naco.org.said Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney Bernie McCabe.Odyssey is a much more cost-efficient way to manage information, what with each constitutional officer using the same system, he said. With Odyssey, different shareholders have different security levels, so that only those who are allowed to look at a particular document one involving a juvenile defendant, for instance will be able to do so, said Ken Burke, Clerk of the Circuit Court, whose office maintains all files. And there are some documents, such as those that are part of a family law case, or a probate matter, that will not be accessible via the Web, Burke said. Tom Bartel, a vice president with Tyler Technologies, which developed Odyssey, said the Texas-based company has clients in 20 other states, as well as in other counties in Florida. Whenever an improvement is made with the other clients Odyssey products, Pinellas County will be able to benefit from those improvements, too.PSTA to host Greenlight Pinellas telephone town hall seriesST. PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will host a series of interactive telephone town hall meetings to share information and gather feedback about Pinellas Countys transit future. Residents from all over the county will receive automated calls inviting them to participate, and anyone can dial in to listen and make their voice heard. Participants will be able to ask questions, both on the call and through social media channels. The first town hall meeting will take place on Thursday, July 24, at 10 a.m. The call will feature Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala and will be moderated by PSTA CEO Brad Miller. The call will be open to the press; additional dial-in information will be advised early next week. This will be the first of three telephone town hall meetings in the month of July; the others will take place the following week with PSTA Board Chair Ken Welch, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long and Largo Vice Mayor Harriet Crozier. Were bringing vital information about Greenlight Pinellas right to the people and giving them a chance to share their opinions and thoughts at the same time, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. Weve already incorporated feedback from 120,000 Pinellas residents into the Greenlight Pinellas plan, but were excited to hear directly from even more people about our countys transit future. Participants can ask questions during or in advance of the call by tweeting to @Greenlight2014 or @RidePSTA, or on the Greenlight Pinellas or PSTA Facebook pages.Pinellas County designated as tech savvyCLEARWATER Pinellas County has been designated as a 2014 Tech Savvy County by the Public Technology Institute. The Local Government Tech Savvy Award Program recognizes the efforts of counties and cities throughout the U.S. that create technology programs to serve constituents both internally and externally. Pinellas County is one of four jurisdictions to receive the recognition. The county will be presented with a certificate of distinction at an awards ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee, this September. It is very exciting to be recognized by the Public Technology Institute as a Tech Savvy County, said Martin Rose, chief information officer of Pinellas Countys Business Technology Services. This award encompasses a holistic view of the progressive use of technology, and associated business processes and governance across county government to better serve our community. As a true partner to all county departments, and with the support from the BTS Board and Board of County Commissioners, Business Technology Services is proud to play a key role in driving technology leadership and in delivering value added services across a wide range of Pinellas County government solutions. According to the Public Technology Institutes Deputy Executive Director Dale Brown, the panel of judges found Pinellas Countys application to be compelling. Brown further stated that the Public Technology Institute would like to utilize illustrations that were included in the application and turn them into demonstration webinars. A list of the winners of the 2014 Tech Savvy Award and a summary of what it means to be tech savvy is available at www.pti.org. For more information on Pinellas County services and programs, visit www.pinellascounty.org.Treatment court serves veterans in needCLEARWATER Veterans charged with certain crimes due to substance abuse or mental health issues are encouraged to take advantage of a special court designed exclusively for them. Its called Veterans Treatment Court, or VTC, and it functions in Pinellas and Pasco counties. The aim of this special court is to help veterans deal with their current criminal charges and stop them from getting into further trouble. It also is designed to help with substance abuse or mental health issues that may have caused or contributed to their legal problems. Only veterans charged with misdemeanors and certain felonies, such as drug-related charges, burglary, grand theft, and battery, may qualify.

In the early stages of dementia, many seniors show less interest in the activities they once enjoyed which can be hard on the family and loved ones who want to help them. There is one thing that all of us can do over and over again and that is simply to hug that person! This one gesture reassures them that they are not alone, they are loved. It is an emotional lift that speaks from the heart expressing, I care, I am here for you. Hugging, holding a hand, or smiling when talking can convey more than any words. We all need some TLC, and the person with dementiais no exception. While she/he might not be able to express their need for touch in words or, in late stages of dementia, the initiation, that touch is important.Also, be aware of your body language and facial expressions. Portraying respect and patience will allow for a positive conversation as it is painful to be talked about as if one isnt present. Routine activity, carefully planned, can enrich the lives of those affected with dementia and support them in many ways by helping them stay focused, maintaining proper blood pressure, blood sugar, keeping their minds sharp, slowing down the decline of dementia and building confidence. A few activities that prove beneficial for seniors and help keep them engaged include the following: Talk about past loves and relationships. Most people with dementia can recall events from the past compared to the present. Bring out old photos to help keep the discussion going. Talk about those romantic memories from the early years. Listen to music. Create art. Use construction paper, felt, doilies, paints, markers and stickers to create a work of art. Their artwork will make great gifts for grandkids, friends and neighbors. Bake something sweet. Make and decorate cookies. Just like music, the smells of baking treats may bring back thoughtful memories. Create with fresh flowers. Buy vases and an assortment of fresh flowers, possibly flowers from their own garden, for the senior to assemble. Remember to keep it fun! Following these few guidelines can offer stimulation and enjoyment for the person affected by dementia and their loved ones. Interacting with the senior with dementia and addressing his or her daily needs can not only provide relief for the senior but also peace of mind and reduced stress for the family. Every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug or just a friendly pat on the back.

Exp. 9/30/14 Dolphins take time for swell lessons Photo by ANN WEAVERIt is never too early to begin being what you are, as DD1s tiny 2-weekold dolphin demonstrates.Gee, thanks, Dad. Thats swell, some teenage Biff might have replied as his father handed him the car keys so his son could drive to the big dance. We do not use terms like gee or swell much anymore. That innocence has long given way to an Instagram page filled with pictures of yourself (selfies) and twerking on the dance floor at clubs where showing the online world that you are at the party is as important as being at the party itself. We are posting from a different part of the world, the dolphins outside your doorstep. The dolphin numbers have been average this summer. Average is encouraging. Dolphin numbers have been below average for the last three years. Let us hope they are recovering. We also are meeting our bull quota. Bulls travel as bonded pairs or singletons. Gnarly and notable, pair Ouch and Fishlips, and pair Grin and Twin Dip, were here for the spring. Many bulls have moved through. We saw Dune, Shop, Hoffman, Brittle, Dipper, Taxus and Ilex only in passing. Others have stayed around. Remnants of the Punch Buddies super-alliance, Nose and Brick are keeping a sharp lookout for available females along the north stretch of the study area. Keyhole Plus survived a big bite last fall. His lifetime of scars has earned him our admiring appellation the Old Warrior. Schnoz makes periodic appearances. N and Riptab usually appear with a strange new dolphin in tow (N is no fool!). Xiphos, a massive bull who first appeared here in 2012, is turning out to be a real character. There is a lot of character in the small groups of smaller dolphins you see dance by. These are nursery groups that include current calves (born last summer, in order of appearance, Echo, Fairuz, Twig, Qody, Jacamo and Labrac) plus Xs restless 2-year-old Xanion. Threading mysteriously among them are new dolphins Platinum, LA Rose, Rainbow, Cryptos and Flame. There have been just three new dolphin calves born so far this summer, two in May to mothers DD1 and LA Stick, and one in June to NF. That means that the 10-year average of twice as many babies born in June as the other warm months has not manifested this year (I hope!). For a time, moms DD1 and LA Stick forged a brief partnership. They swam together with their calves, tiny tykes at 6and 5-weeks-old, respectively. They did not swim together just because they had newborns of similar age. DD1 and LA Stick were friends a long time before this. The other day, Capt. John Heidemann and I found them leaving a sheltered cover. They wandered across into a shallow section of the estuary, heading south in that rhythmic new-mother pace with delicate new charges at their sides. At 6 weeks old, DD1s calf had almost lost its baby body wrinkles called fetal folds. As the calf fills out on mothers milk, the wrinkles inexorably retreat until the calfs body achieves the sleek form of the wellpadded dolphin. DD1s calf had also lost some of its newborn clumsiness. It now managed to match its moms smooth swimming stride about half the time. LA Sticks calf was by far the smallest newborn among the 94 newborns we have seen. At 5 weeks old, it was still largely drawn along on its moms smooth stride. Its fetal folds were still plainly visible. It ended most of its lurching surfaces by dropping back into the water flatly on its chin, in standard splash landing style! The quartet of two moms and two tender (and tenuous) babies meandered over the shallows, paralleling the road. The road is the strip of water between channel markers where prudent boaters set their course. It was almost noon. That meant boat traffic was picking up. Indeed, a series of particularly heavy boats flowed out of the no wake zone, heading south like the dolphin quartet. Unlike the quartet, the heavy boats came abreast of the sign advising boats to resume normal speed and hit the gas. One after another, these beastly boats left wake waves rippling across the shallows as big rollers, as if imported from southern California. The first of these beastly boats accelerated past the dolphins. LA Stick steered her young charge toward it. But schoolmate DD1 did not follow. LA Stick resumed their slow southward crawl, parallel to the road. The two moms seemed to ignore that next couple of boats as well, just as they had ignored the trio of bulls who had recently swung over in faint interest. The moms took their tiny babies below the swells, to ride out the rollers by swimming beneath them and tickling their bellies on seagrass. Perhaps the grass tickled too much or an extra fine set of swells rippled over. For both mothers turned and, positioning with a perfection envied by body surfers the world over, showed their babies how to slide on Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver swells body surfing into the shallows like sliding down a snowy hill on your stomach. The dolphin babies, accustomed to living as appendages off their mothers sides, slid with them down the faces of one handsome roller after another. Human body surfers know how tough these swell lessons can be. But this was not the first swell lesson for LA Sticks newborn. At a scant 9 days of age, it had surfed the voluptuous wake waves behind a yacht at moms side even able to leap clear of the water (at moms side) the first of a lifetime of swell lessons. And we do not expect our human babies to sit up unaided for months after birth. It is never too early, or too late, for swells lessons. So too it is never too early for vigilance against natural enemies. The week after the swell lessons, both babies showed signs of being grabbed by something with teeth. Guess it is never too late to start in on a lifetime of scars either.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

OR 727-400-6870 727-400-6870 072414 Barley Mow Brewery celebrates anniversary, new growth By BRIAN GOFFLARGO The second anniversary of the Barley Mow Brewing Company July 19 was a testament to the success of a business with humble beginnings, at a time when the business is expanding. The brewery, at 518 West Bay Drive, began in a home, when Jay and Colleen Dingman started brewing beer for their personal consumption. And while home brewing is fairly common, the growth of the resulting business however is not. To tell that story, perhaps it is best to go back to the beginning. The Dingmans started brewing as a joint venture, said Jay, 39. It soon became obvious that we couldnt do it together. We had different tastes and liked different things, he explained. So the couple began brewing separate lots about once a month. Then it got to be more frequent. Finally they were brewing separate batches once a week. We were brewing more beer than we could drink, Jay said. At the time, both of us were working in the hospitality industry, and we knew how to run a bar. So we said, why not buy a bar? So they did; in late summer 2011, they bought OHoustons Irish Pub and turned it into the Barley Mow Brewing Company. We got the brewing system we have now, he said. We got it up and running in November 2011 and sold our first beer in July of 2012. Thats why we hold our anniversary party in July. There were plenty of old and new customers at the establishment on its anniversary. Jeff and Linda Lynch drove all the way over from Tampa for the party. They had only been at the Brewing Company once before but felt the party was worth the drive. We like the beer, said Jeff. We had tasted it at various beer fests around here so we finally came over once to enjoy an evening, and we did. We especially like the outdoor patio and the live music, said Linda. Of course, the beer plays a huge part in that. Tim Newbill of Largo has been a regular at the brewery since it opened. He cant seem to get enough of the place. I come here a few times a week, he said. You end up meeting new people and chatting about and comparing the beer. They make excellent craft beer, and the staff is friendly. My friends all like it here too. In fact, the beer is what drives the place, and there is no shortage of variety. We had 50 original beers on tap at the anniversary party, said Jay. We might have had another 15 or 20 that we didnt brew or that we have retired. Many of the beers we have now arent brewed with their original recipes. We have learned how to sharpen our skills and work out the kinks. Jay said that six brands are core to the business. Among those are three particular favorites, all ales. Our bestselling beer is called Quackalope, an IPA, he said. Next is The Unkindness, which is an American black ale, then Selkie, a Belgianstyle pale ale. Jay said his customer base is diverse. It is not a boys game anymore, he said. A lot of women are into craft beer. The boom is so huge right now; it involves somebody from every walk of life. We have people regulars in their 60s and 70s, then at night, regulars who are in their 20s. The Dingmans are taking advantage of the boom with a major expansion that is already underway, at least a year ahead of schedule. They have just purchased a 20,000-square-foot building on Commerce Drive in Largo. A new brewing system is being installed at the production-only facility. At the West Bay location, the brewing system can brew 75 gallons at a time; the new facility will be able to brew 1,000 gallons in the same amount of time. The only thing (different) about this expansion from our original business plan is that it came a year ahead of schedule and is 50 percent larger than we thought it would be, said Jay. The new facility should be up and running by September. It will allow the company to expand into new markets. We had hoped to be able to be a statewide brewery and then a regional brewery. Were well on our way, Jay said. Hard work is critical to the operation, he added. What we do right now is pretty labor-intensive. It is not really super sustainable, he said. We work ridiculous hours. We have a good staff that likes to work as hard as we do. All our employees do everything, from helping with calculating the tax and accounting services to the actual brewing itself. The company currently employs nine people with the possibility of Photo by BRIAN GOFFJay and Colleen Dingman pose with their son, Brody, outside the Barley Mow Brewing Company during the brewerys second anniversary party.adding one more once the new system is up and running. Jay said he never had any doubt that things would work out so well, even at the brewerys humble beginnings. While other business owners might marvel that their success exceeded their wildest dreams, not Jay. In my wildest dreams, I did think wed be here, he said. Weve never been afraid to work. It is a rugged but really rewarding career. We love what we do, and it is easy to be passionate and present in our own business. How big can we go? I dont really know. But when it stops being fun, thats where well stay. That fun can be gauged by a key demographic, explained Jay, once a bartender himself. We get a lot of hospitality people as our customers, he said. Were open late, until 2 or 3 in the morning. If you get a lot of servers and bartenders coming to your place, you are obviously doing something right.Unemployment rate remains steady in Pinellas County By SUZETTE PORTERTALLAHASSEE The latest figures from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity show Pinellas Countys unemployment numbers unchanged for June. Preliminary not seasonally adjusted unemployment for the county was 6 percent unchanged from the revised numbers for May. The preliminary report for May showed the countys unemployment at 5.9 percent. The unemployment rate in June 2013 was 7.5 percent. Unemployment is up slightly for the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan statistical area with Junes preliminary not seasonally adjusted rate at 6.3 percent compared to Mays revised figure of 6.2 percent, which was unchanged from the preliminary report. The big news is the local MSAs return to the top three for over-the-year job growth. May marked the first time in more than a year that the local area did not make the top three. The Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater MSA was No. 1 out of the 23 MSAs in the state for most of 2013. It dropped to No. 3 for the first four months of 2014. It did not make the top three in May. In June, the local MSA, which includes Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, came in third out of the states 22 metro areas for over-the-year job growth. Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford was No. 1 adding 39,100 jobs. Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall was No. 2 with 29,600 jobs. The local MSA reported job gains of 25,300. Pinellas County tied with Manatee, Charlotte and Suwannee for the No. 38 rank out of the states 67 counties. Hernando County ranked No. 8 with 7.9 percent unemployment. Pasco ranked No. 21 with 6.9 percent, and Hillsborough tied with Martin County for No. 31 with a rate of 6.2 percent. Hendry County ranked No. 1 with the states highest unemployment rate of 10.6 percent. Walton County ranked No. 68 with unemployment of 3.4 percent. The local MSA tied with Miami-Fort LauderdalePompano Beach for the No. 8 rank out of 23 metropolitan statistical areas and metropolitan divisions. The Palm Coast MSA ranked No. 1 with unemployment of 8.8 percent. Crestview-Fort Walton Beach-Destin ranked No. 23 with 4.6 percent unemployment. The DEO reports that the state has 237,500 more jobs than it did in June 2013, bringing the total to 7.8 million. June was the 47th consecutive month of positive annual job growth. The industry with the most gains was trade, transportation and utilities with 52,500 new jobs. The states not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose slightly going from 6.1 percent in May to 6.2 percent in June. Unemployment was 7.7 percent in June 2013. National unemployment rate, not seasonally adjusted, was 6.3 percent, up from 6.1 percent in May. The national rate in June 2013 was 7.8 percent. Julys preliminary unemployment report is scheduled for release on Aug. 15.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, July 24, 2014With a tiny curled fist, the toddler next to me, held by her mother, pounds on the Plexiglass that separates us all from the Amscot employees on the other side. She wails and points as she bangs on the bulletand child-resistant barrier. Its barely decipherable, but Im able to make out what shes saying: want. Makes sense. Were all at Amscot because we want something just beyond our means. Her mother smiles apologetically for the noise. She wants the candy. Eventually, a sweaty man wearing a blue button-down shirt and thick glasses slides a few Tootsie Rolls through an opening in the glass and the girl grabs them. A shriveled elderly woman to her mothers left is angry. She waves around a handful of papers and makes demands. She wants to speak with a supervisor. To my right, a blue-collar guy wearily borrows cash against his next paycheck. He wants to pay his electric bill, too, he tells the employee on time, ensuring it doesnt get cut off. Im there with Julie, my girlfriend of three years, and we want to spend our lives together. But before we can head down to the Pinellas County Courthouse and add our name to the countys year-old domestic partnership registry, we need to get our paperwork notarized. For 10 bucks, Amscot will not only notarize it, but also throw in a few random witnesses to boot. We didnt know it then, but the next day, July 17, a judge in Monroe County would strike down Floridas gay marriage ban. Within hours of that decision, the Republican attorney general Pam Bondi would announce shed appeal it, forcing a stay on same-sex marriages in the state. Like many living in the Tampa Bay area, were not actually from Florida. Julie grew up just outside of Washington, D.C., and I moved here five years ago from Long Island. New York legalized same-sex marriage in 2011; D.C. gave gay marriage the green light at the end of 2009. We could easily have gone to either area, where we each still have family and friends, to get married. But because Florida doesnt recognize gay marriages legally performed in other states, we decided to wait until marriage equality comes to the Sunshine State. And it eventually will, as same-sex marriage bans throughout the country are being overturned one after another. So for the time being, were left with a domestic partnership as the only step that will allow us to move our relationship forward. It will afford us a few extra legal protections just six in total. They primarily involve parenting though we dont have or want children as well as hospital visitation rights and health care decisions. Marriage offers couples over 1,100 legal protections and responsibilities. And while the word marriage conjures romantic images of white weddings and celebratory love, the phrase domestic partnership is much more cold and clinical. Domestic partnership. Are we domestic? Sure. Im like a lesbian Donna Reed in plaid, whipping up impressive vegan meals, cleaning our home and caring for our cats. But the word domestic also makes me think of abuse, the war on terror and kept household pets. And of course any good relationship is based on a partnership. But to call it a partnership in the legal title no husband or wife here feels impersonal, unemotional. Are we playing tennis? Are we opening up a Subway franchise together? Or are we building a home, a life together? When we leave Amscot at noon, we rush to the courthouse. Julie has to work at 1 p.m. and we know were cutting it close. We pull a number from the ticket dispenser in the records division, the kind you see at the deli meat counter, but were told the clerks in that office arent following the number system that day. A middle-aged blonde woman with teased Jersey hair calls us to her desk immediately. She smiles at us and reaches for our paperwork. Julie and I look at the clocks on our phones nervously. Its 12:15. To make it to work on time, she needs to leave in 15 minutes. As the woman processes our papers, I elbow Julie and hiss, Ask! I hate to ask this, but how long will this take? I have to get to work, she says. Oh, you dont need to be here, the woman says without looking up. Your paperwork is already signed and notarized. I dont need to be here? No, you dont need to be here. So Julie leaves for work and I get domestic partnered alone. I call her when Im done five minutes later. Damn it, I could have stayed and we could have taken a picture together, she says. When she arrives home from work that night, I have her favorite meal, champagne and flowers waiting for her. She gives me a kiss and asks about my day. We wash the dishes together when were done eating dinner, straighten up and then climb into bed. Were just like any loving couple that wants no, deserves to spend their lives together.Tiffany Razzano is editor of the Seminole Beacon. Email her at trazzano@TBNweekly.comFew tales are more inspiring than the story of an entire nation shaking off the bonds of a cruel and despised oppressor. The Irish have done it, not once but twice. After centuries of iron-fisted control by Great Britain, the people of Ireland in 1922 finally achieved independence by forming the Irish Free State. Sadly, for most of the next hundred years the Irish remained under the yoke of another dictatorship the Roman Catholic Church. Until the 1990s the images of Irish Catholicism were those fostered by books and films in which almost every village contained a saintly, trustworthy priest (think of the twinkle-eyed Barry Fitzgerald in Going My Way) performing good works and uttering kindly counsel. A retinue of nuns of supposedly equal virtue usually assisted him. In reality, the Irish priests and nuns aided by the sheep like devotion of parishioners possessed and used tremendous power. They could influence who married whom, and when and why (or why not). They could grant or withhold their approval of office-holders, social leaders and business enterprises. They were especially adept at controlling sexual attitudes and behavior. If the worldwide Catholic Church has a tradition of regarding sex as unwholesome, that attitude has been especially pervasive among the Irish faithful. The truth about the cruelty and corruption of Irish Catholic bishops, priests and nuns has emerged only during the past two decades. In the 1990s British newspapers began to investigate the state of Irish Catholicism. What they discovered sent shock waves throughout Ireland and, to a lesser extent, among Catholics worldwide. In 1992 it was revealed that one of the churchs leading bishops had fathered a son. Another nationally-known priest was found to have maintained, with his housekeeper, a secret family. These revelations should not have been a complete surprise. For many years the Irish had been aware of nasty rumors telling of wayward priests sexually abusing boys (and sometimes girls). Church higher-ups, all the way to the Vatican, routinely responded by simply transferring the priests to other parishes. In 2009 a state commission, headed by Justice Sean Ryan, concluded a years-long study of the churchs orphanages and industrial schools, which had housed thousands of delinquent children. Their crimes? Often, it was only to have been abandoned by their parents, or to be the offspring of an unmarried mother. The Ryan Report told of the rape, molestation, beatings and starving of these children. Many of them, it was recently discovered, died and were buried in unmarked graves. As the truth about the churchs corruption has come out, millions of the former faithful have abandoned the church. In the mid1980s about 90 percent of Irish Catholics attended a weekly Mass. That figure had dropped to 18 percent by 2011. The country is running out of priests, which is a mixed misfortune, since the ones who remain have fewer of the faithful to serve. Is there any hope that a resurrected and reformed Catholic Church can once again play a role in the religious life of Ireland? If so, perhaps it lies with the churchs headquarters in the Vatican. There, Pope Francis has condemned sexual abuses by priests, especially against children. He recently hinted that the day may come when priests are allowed to marry. A survey has shown that 87 percent of Irish people would approve such a move; almost as high a percentage would welcome the ordination of women into the priesthood. Wed be foolish to hold our breath until such events come to pass. Even if they do, the church in Ireland may never again regain the stature and the unquestioned power it came to enjoy and squander between St. Patricks fifth century conversion and the 1990s, when the long-covered rocks were overturned and the churchs vermin were finally exposed. In any case, the people of Ireland will go on, and the air they breathe as they worship will be cleaner and sweeter than it has been in hundreds of years. In the past shame of the Irish Catholic church, is there a lesson for all of us? I would think so. It is this: Wherever people gather to worship God, Christ, Allah, Jehovah or any other alleged divinity, the earthly organizations devised to assist that religious devotion should be regarded with a healthy degree of mistrust or, at the very least, skepticism. If patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel, religion is too often the arms-wide welcome mat for con artists, perverts, megalomaniacs and thieves.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Tiffany Razzano Delay action on Bluffs new proposalEditor: Inasmuch as Mayor Arbutine decided to disallow citizen comment and questions regarding his proposed utility tax at the July 14 workshop session, I submit the following observations and suggestions: Mayor Arbutines unilateral decision to prohibit citizen input was decided because, as he explained, the comments and questions received at the June workshop were addressed at the outset of the Mondays meeting. However, on Monday, Mayor Arbutine introduced an entirely new proposal. One, which only he was privy to, and one which he and he alone permitted to be discussed. While the mayor tried to explain that Ordinance 137-1 has been illegal since 1973, he could not explain why it has remained in the code and, prior to 1992, the charter mandated the referendum requirement. Also, he did not address the fact that the city has in the past held at least one referendum on a utility tax as required by the Ordinance. Neither the mayor nor the city attorney is in a position to decide that the ordinance is illegal. Any question as to the legality of an Ordinance 137-1 can be resolved only through the appropriate legal proceeding. Proposed: That the city seeks an opinion by a court of competent jurisdiction as to whether or not the Ordinance 137-1 is legal. This step would remove all doubt and possibly prevent the expenditure of taxpayer funds by the city to defend a lawsuit brought against it by the residents should the city proceed with its plan to strike the ordinance and impose a utility tax on the residents and businesses in Belleair Bluffs. Commissioners came prepared to discuss the proposed ordinance July 14 only to be blindsided by a new proposal: lowering ad valorem taxes, taxing only electricity and setting the utility tax rate at the maximum 10 percent. Proposed: That the commission defer further action on Mayor Arbutines proposal for at least one month to allow the commission and public to review and comment on the proposed ordinance. The statutory language that authorizes a utility tax allows the tax rate to be set at any level as long as it does not exceed 10 percent The same law allows a municipality to exempt up the first 500-kilowatt hours of electricity use per month. The exemption applies only to residential customers. Proposed: That the commission considers exempting all or part of the first 500-kilowatt hours of monthly electricity usage for residential customers in the city. The mayors plan anticipates that the utility tax will generate about $195,000 per year. The projection does not include any analysis about how much additional revenue would be received if and when Duke Energy increases it rates for residential and business customers. Proposed: That the ordinance includes language that shall require the roll back of the 10 percent rate any time the revenue exceeds 115 percent of the amount collected in the first 12 months of utility taxes received by the city. Under the leadership of Mayor Arbutine, this citys elected officials have ineffectively terminated a fire chief, ill-advisedly tried to exert its will about how the citys former firefighters would receive their pensions and disastrously litigated the mandate of the Department of Management Services. These reckless actions have siphoned nearly $2 million from the taxpayers of Belleair Bluffs. You have an opportunity to take a step back and engage in thoughtful, deliberate analysis of the citys finances and craft solutions to meet its needs. The question is, are you willing to do so or will you once again risk public funds to defend a hasty decision? I leave you with the well-reasoned comment of Judge Thomas P. Crapps in, City of Belleair Bluffs vs. Department of Management Services and Board of Trustees of the City of Belleair Bluffs Firefighters Pension Trust Fund: Certainly, the law does not prohibit the parties from reaching an agreement that benefits both of them. Dave Fynan Belleair BluffsBelleair Bluffs: A little fiefdomEditor: Belleair Bluffs City Commission workshop July 17 was Kabuki theater at its best. If I didnt know better I would have to think it was a well-rehearsed mayor and commission workshop, but we all know that would be unethical and probably illegal. Mayor Arbutine refused to allow any questioning of the workshop proposals to add a 10 percent utility tax in addition to one of the highest ad valorum, 5.35 mill, taxes in the county. What form of democracy is this? Its definitely not participative when changes in government law are dictated to its citizens. Belleair Bluffs has become a little fiefdom that depends on Largo, Belleair, and the county to provide fire, water, sewage and law enforcement. Why do we need a mayor and commissioners? They mismanage and turn around and hand the bill to the taxpayer. Ron Adams Belleair BluffsAsk for an I.D.Editor: In this busy world of products such as food, oil, home supplies, why is it so easy to just swipe a credit card and the purchase is so complete. The cashiers are even trained not to ask for a photo I.D. Dont you think that in a world where billions of dollars of fraud occur one would ask for a simple I.D.? As a concerned citizen, I even had cid on the back of my card. Again, what for, nobody checks. It truly scares me that big stores refuse to ask for I.D. Im sure many others feel like I do. Its that easy to purchase items. If I simply lose my card and think its safely in my wallet before I realize its missing after several days, much damage can be already done. Hundreds if not thousands cannot be accounted for. Im baffled by the lack of security. What is it! Bigger and better profit for the companies or the simple inconvenience of a customer going in their wallet or purse for a picture I.D. We have security in all aspects of life. From our airports to cameras on our streets. We live in a society where caution is a reality. Again, many people simply lose their card. Before they notice it missing, that card can be used in many fraudulent ways. Yep! Its that easy. Nobody wants to be a victim. Lets protect ourselves. Dont make it easier for people to use and abuse this plastic. Can someone simply explain to me why this process isnt used? Please ask me for my I.D.; Ill be happy to show you. Gary Neal Clearwater

PETERSBURG On Sunday, Aug. 17, Tropicana Field will become Lou Gehrigs house, when the Tampa Bay Rays take on the New York Yankees for the annual ALS Awareness Game at 1:40 p.m. ALS supporters will sit together in a special section and the ticket purchase price includes a Tshirt. To order tickets, visit www.ALSAFL.org. Rays fans will root not only for Longoria and Price, but also for those who have fought or continue to fight for their lives people with ALS live on average only two to five years after diagnosis. The Tampa Bay Rays and The ALS Association Florida Chapter hope that the game will increase awareness of ALS, and the difficulties faced daily by people living with the insidious disease. Nearly 500 supporters of The ALS Association Florida Chapter are expected to attend, all wearing commemorative Lou Gehrig 75th anniversary Strike out ALS T-shirts. Gehrig retired from baseball with an emotional farewell speech on July 4, 1939. In the 75 years since Gehrig lost his life to the disease that now bears his name, theres still no known cause, treatment or cure for ALS. To kick off the game, Rays play-by-play announcer, Andy Freed, will read Lou Gehrigs famous farewell speech, player David DeJesus will be featured in a special PSA, and an ALS patient will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The ALS Association Florida Chapter values our wonderful community partner, the Tampa Bay Rays, said Kim Hanna in a press release. Hanna is president and CEO of The ALS Association Florida Chapter. We are hoping the game will act as a platform to spread awareness and reach those in the community who may not be aware of Lou Gehrigs Disease or its devastating effects.Bayfront celebrates resident graduatesST.

Their music is rife with country, rockabilly and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles including I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Lodi, Susie Q, Wholl Stop the Rain, Travelin Band, Fortunate Son, Down On The Corner, Bad Moon Rising and Proud Mary. Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it faithfully from the original recording.

Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Dafoe) and a young female lawyer (McAdams) who is determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, its not long before he becomes everyones most wanted man. A Most Wanted Man, a cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is also contemporary and deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day.Happy ChristmasGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Mark Webber, Lena Dunham and Joe Swanberg Director: Joe Swanberg Rated: R A budding novelist and her film director husband, Kelly (Melanie Lynskey) and Jeff (Joe Swanberg) and their 2-year-old son live a peaceful existence in Chicago. But when Jeffs irresponsible younger sister, Jenny (Anna Kendrick), comes to live with them after a breakup, things start to change. Jenny begins a rocky relationship with a baby sitter-cum-pot dealer (Mark Webber), and she and a friend, Carson (Lena Dunham), instigate an evolution in Kellys life, as her career and her relationship with her husband begin to grow in new directions. But are they welcome ones?Magic in the MoonlightGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Eileen Atkins, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, Emma Stone, Jacki Weaver, Erica Leerhsen, Catherine McCormack, Paul Ritter and Jeremy Shamos Director: Woody Allen Not rated Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allens Magic in the Moonlight is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake. Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists claims that they can perform real magic. Persuaded by his life-long friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Cte dAzur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels. From his very first meeting with Sophie, Stanley dismisses her as an insignificant pip-squeak who he can unmask in no time, scoffing at the familys gullibility. To his great surprise and discomfort, however, Sophie accomplishes numerous feats of mind-reading and other supernatural deeds that defy all rational explanation, leaving him dumbfounded. Before long, Stanley confesses to his beloved Aunt Vanessa (Eileen Atkins) that he has begun to wonder whether Sophies powers could actually be real. If they were to be true, Stanley realizes that anything might be possible, even good, and his entire belief system would come crashing down.Very Good GirlsGenre: Drama Cast: Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Boyd Holbrook, Demi Moore, Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Barkin, Peter Sarsgaard and Clark Gregg Director: Naomi Foner Not rated Best friends Lily (Dakota Fanning) and Gerry (Elizabeth Olsen), home for one last New York summer, make a pact to lose their virginity before leaving for college. But when they both fall for the same handsome artist (Boyd Holbrook) and Lily starts seeing him in secret, a lifelong friendship is tested. For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Tickets start at $41. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheck erdhall.com. In concert, the artist is lauded for his impeccable vocals, his connection to his audience and the sheer physicality of his performance. Maxwell signed to Columbia Records at the tender age of 21. He had already composed more than 300 songs before signing on to the major label. The Brooklyn born phenomenon soon took the music world by storm with his debut album, Maxwells Urban Hang Suite. The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist began redefining classic soul music for a new generation with the release of the critically acclaimed debut in 1996. Fueled in part by the certified gold single Ascension (Dont Ever Wonder), the album achieved double platinum status. The debut also received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album. In 1997, Maxwell released his follow up, the MTV Unplugged EP, which achieved gold status with his live rendition of This Womans Work. He was heralded as the future of soul music and proved his staying power when he followed up with 1998s platinum seller Embrya. In 1999 Maxwells single, Fortunate off of the Life soundtrack became Billboard magazines No. 1 hit of the year. Maxwells third album, Now hit shelves in 2001 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. Now sold 300,000 copies during its maiden week and eventually also reached double platinum status. Following a tour supporting Now, Maxwell took several years off from recording and performing. According to a biography from Shore Fire Media, to hear Maxwell explain it, as much as his fans were waiting for him, he was waiting for them and in the process of finding himself. Sometimes I cant believe I do this because youre living your life, Maxwell said in the artist bio. Going to the corner store, taking out the garbage and the next thing you know youre on stage at Radio City Music Hall. Its such a humbling thing and youd think it would make my ego go out of control but I feel humility. Like this is why I need to do this. Its not about your ego. Its about celebrating your opportunity and the blessing to work and the joy you can possibly bring to people. Thats how it all resonated with me.

Websites like Ready.gov advise people to "install a generator for emergencies." Rarely mentioned, though, is that as good as they are at keeping you powered, unless you've also got a carbon monoxide detector -which costs all of $20 or so -you risk being slowly poisoned by fumes spewed by generators in too-tight quarters. At least nine fatalities were linked to that one omission alone, and Dr. Robert Glatter, a physician at Manhattan's Lenox Hill Hospital, called it "a major concern of public health officials after the storm." Cash is still king. Guess what those who routinely pay by credit or debit cards discovered also doesn't work during power outages? ATM machines. And since many stores could only accept real money, it fell to those like the Hoboken, N.J., woman who'd kept a "$100 emergency bill in a safe at home" to bail out neighbors. Fortify your roof. Roofs suffered some of the biggest casualties from the ferocious winds. While there's nothing you can do to prevent trees from smashing through them, other homeowners might've gotten off more easily had they heeded the advice of Jason Joplin, program manager of the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence: "Always install a drip edge to prevent wind-driven rain from entering the roof fascia and deck." And he notes that the line of pre-cut Starter Strip Shingles from GAF (www.gaf.com), North America's largest roofing manufacturer, includes the industry's "strongest and most properly positioned adhesive to help prevent blow-off." 071714 Hurricane Season is coming: Prepare for the worst Save with the best TREE TRIMMING, TREE REMOVAL HAULING & REMOVAL OF DEBRISLandscaping, Clean-outs Bucket truck available.(727)487-3695www.precisiontreeservices.net061214 SUBMIT YOUR CLASSIFIED AD ONLINEToo busy to call in to our ofce?

Gulf Blvd.Apparel Gifts & Decor 727-565-0207 www.Pheeneys.com072414 In an age of immediacy, the idea of waiting sounds hopelessly outdated. Conversely, there is something to be said about anticipation. That may prove to be the case with Maxwells 2009 album. After an extended hiatus, the ambassador of soul returned with a brand new look and a fresh yet infectiously vintage sound. The same artist who delivered classic songs like Sumthin Sumthin, Ascension (Dont Ever Wonder) and Lifetime as well as his unforgettably ethereal cover of Kate Bushs This Womans Work returned with a challenging, mature, sensual, courageous and emotionally open album entitled, BLACKsummersnight on Columbia Records. The album the first installment of a trilogy was a collection that was well worth the wait. BLACKsummersnightMaxwells fourth studio album and first in eight years, BLACKsummersnight is the sound of an artist taking the commitment to his craft and the conversation with his audience that much further. I wanted to return to what was the promise? Maxwell said in artist bio provided by Shore Fire Media. What did my music and creativity speak of to people? For me, coming back to that promise was kind of where my heart was really gravitating towards. I didnt intentionally step away from all of it, but I just wanted to live my life a little bit, and then be able to make music with that pure experience again. The soft-spoken, multi-platinum artist believes that in order to come back, it was necessary to step away. He might have been out of the spotlight for eight years, but Maxwell along with long time collaborator and friend Hod David had begun crafting BLACKsummersnight several years ago. By late 2008, the process of polishing and shaping the album was full on. Though having much of his creative team on board, Maxwell still approached the creative process with extreme caution and the painstaking meticulousness of a true genius. Every time Id get in the studio it would be like I am trying to outdo this last record? I just wanted to make a really good record, he said. Composed of nine indelible songs, BLACKsummersnight finds Maxwell exploring life with a bold and purposeful sensuality unmistakably his own. Opening with a delicate hint of wistful chimes, the first single, Pretty Wings, is nostalgic and yet undeniably passionate. Its about the last relationship I had, Maxwell said. How you meet the person of your dreams but at the wrong time. She was a serious muse and the song is a testament to what I wanted to say and say, to her. Equally personal is Fistful of Tears. Pushed along by a sturdy and incessant piano, Maxwell, shifting from those oh so recognizable falsettos and baritones, rides the melody like a man both possessed by and resigned to his feelings. Its kind of about wanting to leave the industry and a relationship, but then realizing that I should give it a last try, he said. Dont let it go. Then theres the jazz thumping Cold. Peppered by a funked-up horn section and wrapped in a moist honey soaked groove, this fun, head bopping track finds Maxwell asking the eternal lovers question, why do you like me like you do? BLACKsummersnight earned Maxwell six Grammy Award nominations and won for Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for Pretty Wings. It has sold over one million copies in the United States. A constant throughout BLACKsummersnight is its live and often raw sound. The entire album was recorded with an extraordinary live 10-piece band. He is taking it back to when a solo genius artist offered music that was close to perfection. No synthesizers, no duets. Just Maxwell bare and in the flesh ready to give old fans and new ones a sensory experience that he never fails to bring. MAXWELL, from page 3BMahaffey Theater announces 2014-15 scheduleST.
