They are incumbent Bob Matthews, Seminole Chamber of Commerce president Roger Edelman, recent Seminole Charter Review Board Chair Joe Haynes, Thomas Christy, Vincent C. Trovato and Michael Fisher. The qualification deadline for the election ended at 4 p.m. Aug. 11. Councilor John Counts, who has sat on the council for over a decade, announced he wouldnt seek re-election at the July 22 council meeting. Matthews has been a council member since 1990, aside from eight months in 2006. A U.S. Air Force veteran and a retired Florida Power Corp. employee, hes lived in Seminole since 1972. He and his wife currently run Seminole Garden Florist and Party Store at 12020 Park Blvd. Matthews is a member of the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council and volunteers with the Seminole Pow Wow Festival. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Edelman has lived in Seminole since 1985. A retired sales manager for a Fortune 500 printing and publishing company, and a former small business owner, hes been chamber president since June 2011. Hes currently on the PARC Board of Directors, previously served on the boards of Pinellas Village, Pinellas Marine Institute, and Seminole Lake Country Club and was president of the Seminole Lake Homeowners Association. Haynes, a pediatric pharmacist at All Childrens Hospital, lived in unincorporated Pinellas County from 1996 to 2012, when he annexed his home into Seminole. This year he was nominated to the Seminole Charter Review Board and elected chair. The boards recommendations will appear on the Nov. 4 ballot. Haynes is also active in Toastmasters, overseeing four clubs as area governor, and hes been recognized as a Distinguished Toastmaster. Christy moved to Seminole in 2005. He served twice on the Tonawanda, N.Y., City Council. He worked 30 years for childrens book publisher Carton-Craft Corp. in Buffalo, N.Y. He is a lifetime member of the Knights By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners said no Aug. 5 to a request to put a referendum question on the November ballot to get voters opinion on legalizing slot machines at pari-mutuel facilities. Commissioner Susan Latvala brought the request to the table during the miscellaneous section of the regularly scheduled meeting. Latvala said Richard Winning, vice president of the St. Petersburg Kennel Club and Derby Lane, the countys only pari-mutuel facility, had contacted her about the matter. Latvala reminded commissioners that the state legislature had talked about allowing slot machines at parimutuels in 2012 and asked the county to put a referendum on the ballot. But the legislature didnt pass anything, and the matter was dropped. She said the state is expected to consider an expansion of slot machines in the coming year, and the county was being asked to put a referendum on the November ballot to gauge voter interest. Commission Chair Karen Seel expressed reluctance about putting a referendum on the ballot about a law that had not yet been passed. I assume it would be the same as last time, Latvala said. They want the ability to say our citizens support it. Commissioner Charlie Justice said other counties had taken a referendum vote on matters in the past that werent yet law and the attorney general had said they were not valid. County Attorney Jim Bennett said the matter considered in 2012 was expansion of slot machines.

Page 3B.ENTERTAINMENT CORRECTIONProperty not soldA story in the Seminole Beacon Aug. 7 incorrectly said that Orange Blossom Groves has been sold and contained other errors. A contract is pending on the property but contingencies will have to be met before the developer will actually close on the property. The Realtor for the property, Sandy Hartmann and Associates, who is representing the Repetto family, said there are positive signs that this will happen, probably in February. The listing price of the property is $2.2 million. The Realtors believe the development will be a walled community instead of a gated community. Al Repetto opened Orange Blossom Groves with his sister, Edwina, and her husband, Charles Bud Hutchinson, but the sister was the real co-founder, the Realtors said. Anyone with any interest in the property should call Sandy Hartmann for more info rmation at 398-2310.COUNTYWoodard offered administrative postPinellas County Commissioners agreed unanimously Aug. 5 to take the interim off the title of County Administrator Mark Woodard. Commissioners authorized Chair Karen Seel to negotiate a contract, schedule a meet and greet with the community, as well as a conversation with Woodard to talk about the countys strategic direction. ...

Thousands of people attended the first annual Mid-Pinellas Comic Con at the Seminole Community Library on Saturday, Aug. 9, and many of them were dressed up like their favorite comic book or sci-fi characters. They say it is all about being yourself. Rae Johnston, 16, of Largo, dressed as a minstrel, said she intended to spend the entire day at the event because she felt at home. Im surrounded by my geek brethren, she said. This is Cosplay, where you dress up as a character that you love. Nobody judges you here; it is more about the love than the content. Johnston seemed to be in a constant state of motion with a smile on her face, yet she had a couple of complaints. It could be bigger and there is not enough food here, she said. There arent enough things to buy. When told there were several food trucks outside with plenty to eat, she replied: It is too hot out there. Indeed with blazing sunshine and the temperature in the mid-90s all day, the place to be was inside in the air conditioning. Thats where Nicole JacobsRoberts spent her time dressed in a unique dress that she made herself. It was a dress made entirely of trading cards, Pokmon cards, U-GI-O cards and others. There are at least 400 cards in the dress. I attached or sewed every one on myself, she said. Jacobs-Roberts drove from Palmetto to attend the convention. To her it was a drive well worth it. I used to work the road, she said. I love any comic con no matter where it is, so no, this wasnt a long drive at all. Jacobs-Roberts, 26, admits hers is an unusual hobby, but she loves it. It is fun, I love the costumes, I lovePhoto by BRIAN GOFFSavannah Tall, 1, is fascinated by R2-D2, the character from Star Wars.

These costumes are an art form. My mom says it is time I grow out of this, but I dont think so. Just a week before the Seminole gathering the largest Comic Con in the Bay area was held in Tampa. Jacobs-Roberts went to that one, too. It is all about meeting friends and running all over the hotels at night looking for other friends. We get into all sorts of shenanigans at these things, she said. St. Petersburg College and the Seminole Community Library staged the MidPinellas Comic Con jointly. The idea was to bring such an event closer to home. The event is for Pinellas residents who may not attend other fan conventions because of the distance or cost, said Chad Mairn, the librarian at the SPC Seminole campus. In addition to the vendors and displays there was some serious business available at the convention. College representatives were on hand to talk to prospective students about the college and some of its offerings, specifically video game development and animation digital imaging.It is fun, I love the costumes, I love the creations.

Busch Gardens representatives also were on hand to reveal how they make their annual howla-scream event so terrifying. A check through the crowd verified that Comic Con was for all ages. Confronting, face to face, was Savannah Tall, 1, and the Star wars Robot R2-D2. The robot was fully animated and operated from afar so no one, not just little Savannah, had any idea why the Robot kept moving about. She loved it, according to her mom Dena Klinger of Largo. She likes it, there is so much for her to see here, she said. It depends on the individual who comes here whether it is about the comics or the dressing up. I know I come to enjoy it all. Mairn, the organizer of the event, said there will be another one next year. For sure well be doing this in 2015, he said. This year it exceeded our wildest expectations. By the end of the day we estimated there were more than 3,500 people who came to the event. This was very successful. Photos by BRIAN GOFFHundreds of people crowded into the Seminole Community Library for the Mid-Pinellas Comic Con. COMIC CON, from page 1Asomething that hasnt happened yet, he said. He was concerned that the word limit on a ballot question would be insufficient. He also was concerned about the length of time available to come up with a question. He said any additions to the November ballot had to be turned in to the supervisor of elections office by 5 p.m. Aug. 19. Commissioners do have a meeting scheduled that day, beginning at 2 p.m. In addition, adding the question could increase the cost of the election, as voters in Seminole would likely have two ballot cards. We believe (ballot) language could be crafted in such a way to get the message to the legislators, Winning told commissioners. He talked about the effect the states compact with the Seminole Tribe for gambling at the Hard Rock in Tampa had on Derby Lane, touted as the worlds oldest continuously operating greyhound racetrack. The facility at 10490 Gandy Blvd, St. Petersburg, has been in operation since 1925. It offers greyhound racing, simulcast wagering on horse races and poker play. Its hurt business, he said. Were trying to survive. Slot machines could be the answer to the problem. We want a new product to offer our customers, he said. Weve been in the same location since 1925 and have 500 employees. Commissioner Ken Welch said he was not opposed to putting the matter before the voters, but he was concerned about the timing. Commission Chair Karen Seel said there were three opportunities to place a referendum on the ballot in 2015 March 10, Aug. 25 and Nov. 3 but there could be additional costs. Welch asked what would be the purpose of having residents vote on something that was not yet law. To show the legislature that the people want it, Winning said. He said Sen. Jack Latvala is in support of legislation expanding slot machines into pari-mutuel facilities. This issue is very big, said Commissioner Norm Roche. He also was concerned about the issue of timing. He said a work session should be scheduled to discuss it. This is a big discussion. We should do our due diligence, he said. He suggested putting the item on next years legislative agenda if the commission wanted to support having slot machines at Derby Lanes. He also suggested doing a scientific poll to find out citizens opinions. Seel agreed with Roche that putting the matter on the legislative agenda was the right direction. The commission voted 6-1 against putting a referendum on the November agenda. Latvala cast the only yes vote. Rae Johnston is the Minstrel in costume. REFERENDUM, from page 1AForecasters with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center raised the likelihood for a below-normal season in its update to the Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook. The update, released Aug. 7, predicts a 70 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 25 percent chance of a near-normal season and only a five percent chance of an above-normal season. The probabilities in the initial outlook issued on May 22 were 50 percent, 40 percent and 10 percent, respectively. We are more confident that a below-normal season will occur because atmospheric and oceanic conditions that suppress cyclone formation have developed and will persist through the season, said Dr. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service. Nonetheless, tropical storms and hurricanes can strike the U.S. during belownormal seasons, as we have already seen this year when Arthur made landfall in North Carolina as a Category 2 hurricane. We urge everyone to remain prepared and be on alert throughout the season. Bell lists three primary factors influencing the increased chance of a below-normal season. Overall, atmospheric conditions are not favorable for storm development. This includes strong vertical wind shear, a weaker West African monsoon, and the combination of increased atmospheric stability and sinking motion. These conditions mean fewer tropical systems are spawned off the African coast, and those that do form are less likely to become hurricanes. These conditions are stronger than originally predicted in May and expected to last until midAugust through October, the peak months of the hurricane season. Oceanic conditions are not favorable for storm development. This includes below-average temperatures across the Tropical Atlantic, which are exceptionally cool relative to the remainder of the global Tropics. This cooling is even stronger than models predicted in May and is expected to persist through the hurricane season. El Nio is still likely to develop and to suppress storm development by increasing vertical wind shear, stability and sinking motion in the atmosphere. The updated hurricane season outlook, which includes hurricanes Arthur and Bertha, predicts a 70 percent chance of the following ranges: seven to 12 named storms (top winds of 39 mph or higher), including three to six hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or higher), of which zero to two could become major hurricanes (Category 3, 4, 5; winds of at least 111 mph). These ranges are centered below the 30-year seasonal averages of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. The initial outlook in May predicted eight to 13 named storms, three to six hurricanes and one to two major hurricanes. The Climate Prediction Center continued the El Nio watch Aug. 7. Forecasters said that although sea surface temperatures across the central equatorial Pacific have recently returned to near average, this cooling is expected to be temporary. El Nio is now favored to emerge during August-October, and to peak at weak strength during the late fall and early winter. The likelihood of El Nio during August-October has decreased to 55 percent (from 75 percent in May), and its likelihood during the fall and winter has decreased to about 65 percent (from near 80 percent).NOAA forecasters update hurricane season outlook The latest hurricane outlook from forecasters with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center raises the likelihood for a below-normal season. The update, released Aug. 7, predicts a 70 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 25 percent chance of a near-normal season and only a 5 percent chance of an above-normal season. The probabilities in the initial outlook issued on May 22 were 50 percent, 40 percent and 10 percent, respectively.Graphic courtesy of NOAAof Columbus.

In a report issued Aug. 8, the FWC confirmed that no bloom levels of red tide have been detected alongshore or inshore. However, two samples collected inshore of Sarasota and Manatee counties contained background concentrations of Florida red tide, also known by the scientific name karenia brevis. A patchy bloom up to 60 miles wide and 90 miles long was visible in satellite images from the Optical Oceanography Laboratory. The bloom is located at least 20 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties. The surface bloom shows little movement, according to the latest forecast by the Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tides. Red tide in bottom waters is moving slowly to the east-southeast. Experts say the bloom should remain offshore for the next few days. The FWC is scheduled to release another report Aug. 15. Residents can call 1-866-300-9399 for the latest conditions. Florida Red tide is common to the Gulf of Mexico. A red tide bloom occurs whenever there is a higher-than-normal concentration. Red tide produces a brevetoxin that can kill fish, birds and marine mammals; cause health problems for humans; and adversely affect local economies, according to the information from the Florida Wildlife Research Institute. Thousands of fish have died during this current bloom, according to the FWC. Among the dead and moribund benthic reef fish are various snapper and grouper species, hogfish, grunts, crabs, flounder, bull sharks, lionfish, baitfish, eel, sea snakes, tomtates, lizardfish, filefish, octopus and triggerfish. To report a fish kill, call 1800-636-0511. Humans generally are not affected, but wave action can cause the karenia brevis cells to break open, which releases toxins into the air that can cause respiratory irritation. For folks with severe or chronic respiratory conditions, such as emphysema or asthma, red tide can cause serious illness. The red tide toxins also can get into mollusks, such as oysters and clams, which can lead to neurotoxic shellfish poisoning to those who eat contaminated shellfish. People also should not eat fish suspected to have died from red tide exposure. Pet owners are advised to keep their animals from eating dead fish that wash up on the beach. Also, if pets swim in a red tide area, they should be washed off immediately afterward. Reports of red tide in the Gulf of Mexico date back to the 1500s. Red tide occurs most years. When it concentrates and forms a bloom, it causes problems. A study of three red tide blooms in the 1970s and 1980s, estimated economic losses between $15 million and $25 million. A red tide bloom in 2005-06 devastated the countys marine life and local businesses felt the effects as tourists canceled bookings. The only positive was additional money granted to researchers, such as the FWRI in St. Petersburg and Mote Laboratories in Sarasota, to study red tide. Two underwater robots were deployed Aug. 1 by Mote and the University of South Florida. Their reports are helping in short-term forecasts of the direction of theRed tide threat remains offshore, state officials say Photo courtesy of GREG BYRD/MOTE MARINE LABORATORYWaldo, the Mote Marine robot, is reporting blooms on the surface and to depths of about 80 feet offshore the Pasco-Hernando line.bloom path. Waldo, the Mote Marine robot, has reported blooms on the surface and to depths of about 80 feet offshore the Pasco-Hernando line. The USF robot, called Bass, is at the outer edge of the bloom and reported elevated chlorophyll in water as deep as 131 feet. A research cruise, which ended Aug. 6, included scientists from FWC, Mote and USF. The researchers were attempting to construct a 3-D depiction of red tide by measuring concentrations of the algae in waters offshore Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties. Mote scientists also used their BreveBuster during the cruise, which was designed to detect red tide algae. The specialized tool was developed by Mote with grant money it received after the devastating bloom in 2005-06.

Exp. 9-5-14 Pay Cash and Save By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners agreed unanimously Aug. 5 to take the interim off the title of County Administrator Mark Woodard. Commissioners authorized Chair Karen Seel to negotiate a contract, schedule a meet and greet with the community, as well as a conversation with Woodard to talk about the countys strategic direction. Woodard thanked the commission, but reaffirmed that he prefers to work without a contract and does not want any benefits not offered to other employees. I am humbled by your kind words and confidence, Woodard said, before promising to come to work every day as I have for the last 26 years and to work hard to do all we can to serve the public. The commission was scheduled to review applications submitted to Human Resources for the new position. Instead, the consensus was to hire Woodard. Commissioners unanimously approved a compensation agreement with Woodard during its May 6 meeting. Woodard replaced Robert LaSala who was terminated April 15. Woodard was formerly an assistant county administrator and LaSalas chief of staff. Commissioner Susan Latvala voiced her support for Woodard during a July 15 meeting, but the commission decided to wait until the end of the application period, July 31, to discuss the matter. Forty-six applications were received. She said Aug. 5 that none of the applicants was as qualified as Woodard in part due to his in-depth knowledge of the county. Theres a value in that, she said. Ive known Mark for 16 years, Seel said. But as second in command, you cant show your leadership skills. Seel and other commissioners commented that since Woodard had been appointed interim administrator he had shown his style of leadership and connection with employees. Seel compared Woodards commitment to public service to that enjoyed by the county under the leadership of former administrator Fred Marquis. Latvala praised Woodard for his ability to communicate with commissioners and his ability to provide information on anything. I have two words to describe Mark Woodard total professional, said Commissioner John Morroni. Commissioner Charlie Justice said he supported the decision to offer the job to Woodard, but was concerned about the process. He said some of those who had applied were quality applicants. Commissioner Norm Roche agreed with Justice and pointed out that time and money was spent on a search. Latvala said the commission wasnt aware of Woodards abilities and skills until he started doing the job. She agreed that some of the applicants seemed very qualified. I didnt know we had such a capable man under our own roof, she said. She said the last few months had shown that Woodard was the best qualified for the job. Commissioner Janet Long praised Woodard for changing the culture in Pinellas County. Theres no strong history of promoting from within, she said. She said in the past when top management positions needed to be filled, the first thought was to look outside. This is a breath of fresh air, she said. Woodard began his career with the county in June 1988 as a senior financial management analyst before moving into the position of director of the Office of Management and Budget and then the assistant county administrator and chief of staff. I will work to set the standard for public performance in America, Woodard said.Commission offers Woodard top county job Mark WoodardST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County citizens will go to the polls Nov. 4 to vote on a proposed 1-cent sales tax increase to improve public transportation facilities in the county. To help them understand the pros and cons of the referendum, St. Petersburg College will present a free public forum on the issue on Aug. 28. The program, titled Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? will be from 6-8 p.m. at the Enoch Davis Recreation Center, 1111 18th Ave. S. It is sponsored by the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Tampa Bay Times is the media sponsor. Advance reservations are requested. The referendum, approved last fall by the Pinellas County Commission, would fund improvements in bus service provided by the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and eventually a 24-mile light-rail line serving high-employment sectors between downtown St. Petersburg and downtown Clearwater. While raising the sales tax from 7to 8cents per dollar, the referendum would eliminate the current .75-mill property tax dedicated to transportation. The forum will open with a brief explanation of the proposal, followed by pro-con presentations by advocates for and against passage. Speaking for the amendment will be Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch. Speaking against will be Dan Liedtke, a member of the Gulfport City Council. The final portion of the program will be devoted to answering questions from the audience. Moderating the debate will be Dr. James Olliver, provost of the Seminole Campus of SPC. The proposed tax increase, if approved by more than 50 percent of Pinellas voters, would authorize a 1-cent sales tax increase for 30 years, which would raise a projected $130 million per year. The tax hike would be partially offset by eliminating the current .75-mill property tax for transit that brings in $32 million. For that revenue stream, PSTA promises a 65 percent increase in bus service, a Bus Rapid Transit line, that is, dedicated bus lanes, on major corridors; and, eventually, a 24-mile light rail line that would connect downtown St. Petersburg and downtown Clearwater, roughly following the I-275 corridor to the Gateway area, then westward along Ulmerton/Roosevelt Road; and East Bay and West Bay Boulevard.

This goal is driven with safety as the key component. In a heartbeat, a fall can occur that may or may not result in broken bones but for an elderly person it can be a setback that can be life changing as far as them being able to maintain living in their homes. The effect of falls can be devastating both physically and financially. Medications are often the culprit for falls. It is a good practice to ask your doctor about the side effects of each drug you are taking so you are aware of what to expect and be sure to report them to him/her. Also share this information with your family and caregiver. Certain drugs can cause the blood pressure to lower which when getting up out of a chair or bed too quickly may cause dizziness or fainting. Try to get up slowly, especially in the middle of the night, sit on the edge of the bed a moment and then rise slowly to get your bearings. Walkers, canes and other tools of assistance are needed in the prevention of falls. Floppy slippers and shoes with slick soles can be a hazard. Often older adults tend to shuffle more than pick up their feet which makes tripping a real possibility especially on uneven pavement. It is very common for our seniors to attempt to do tasks that they have done their entire life when these very tasks now put them at risk for falling. For example, just one step up on a stool or ladder is extremely dangerous for older adults, who do not have the strength and balance of previous years. Encourage your loved ones to please ask a family member or caregiver to change a light bulb or reach items in cabinets that are too high. Electrical cords running across walkways, clutter or too many throw rugs are an accident waiting to happen. Railings on stairs, grab bars in the bathroom and adequate light are all easy fixes for prevention. It takes our eyes a while to adjust between darkness and light, therefore, adequate lighting is a must. Upon sign up for services with Comfort Keepers, a home environment assessment is done to offer the families ideas of how to take precautions against their loved one falling. This is a thorough checklist of potential conditions and/or methods to assist in prevention of injuries due to falls. Living well encompasses many aspects that in-home care can enhance. These aspects include mental, physical, nutritional and Safety considerations. We offer technology solutions, such as a Personal Emergency Response System, a fall detector, and a medication management system, all designed to increase safety.

PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority launched a new transparency initiative Aug. 7 that puts all public records requests online for the public to view. The action makes PSTA the first public transit agency in Florida and one of Tampa Bay's first governmental agencies to puts its public records requests online. Users can visit psta.net/publicrecords.php and see all public records requests dating back to Jan. 1, 2014. The requests can be searched in real time, and details include the record requestor's name, date of requests, topic of requests and completion status for all requests. "We are proud to be one of the most transparent and open public services in Florida, and launching this new effort really amplifies that," said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. "From the onset, PSTA's Greenlight Pinellas mass transit planning initiative has been based on transparency and inclusiveness, and this is one more way we are meeting that goal. By putting these requests online, we are giving the public the ability to see not only the volume of requests we receive more than 350 in the first half of this year alone but also the action we are taking on those requests. This is an historic move that directly benefits the taxpayers we're proud to serve." The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority is the public transit provider for Pinellas County, providing more than 14.4 million rides per year. PSTA operates nearly 40 bus and trolley routes with a fleet of 203 vehicles.

The event will showcase the clubs six winter ski trips for the upcoming season and kick off its fundraising efforts for the Bay Pines Disabled American Veterans. Social meetings held at the same time and location are also set for the following dates: Sept. 9, Oct. 14, Nov. 11, Jan. 13, 2015, Feb. 10, March 10, April 14 and May 12. There are trips planned to Telluride, Colorado; Cooper, Colorado; Keystone, Colorado; Big Sky, Montana; Sugarloaf, Maine; and Madonna di Campiglio, Italy. This season also marks the 31st anniversary of the not-for-profit club, commonly known as the Snowsharks. Funds raised at the event will benefit those veterans that attend the Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass, Colorado in March 2015. This unique rehab clinic is held each year, but due to the cost of travel, only a handful of the veterans have been able to attend.

Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, this concept has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then writes a check directly to the winning organization.

Their mission was simple: They wanted to educate the community on art, to showcase local talent and to support visual arts and self-expression. Fifty years later the nonprofit organization is still going strong. Today it has nearly 200 members and continues to introduce new programs. The group will celebrate its Golden Jubilee at an open house Sunday, Aug. 24, 1 to 5 p.m., at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd. Attendees are invited to enjoy the current exhibit, Years of Art, and interact with local artists performing various demonstrations. This event is free and family-friendly. Since 2010, watercolor artist Richard Jansen, who is also a retired elementary school teacher, has led the organization as president. Thanks to his efforts, as well as the efforts of other volunteers, PPAS has attracted new, talented instructors, including Robert B. Lewis of the Florida Highwaymen and graphite pencil artist and author Mike Sibley. The past two years, inspired by a scholarship Jansen received as an artistic teen growing up in Poughkeepsie, PPAS has begun awarding $1,500 college scholarships to local students studying art. The group has also participated in a number of off-site exhibitions. Locales include Stirling Gallery in Dunedin, Kahwa Coffee in St. Petersburg, the Largo Library and St. Petersburg College. PPAS also continues to showcase monthly exhibits at Park Station and award ribbons to the best work. As for the organizations future, Jansen plans to establish art programs for local youth and a variety of workshops to accommodate adults juggling a busy work and family schedules. Here and there Here and thereAnd in the fall, PPAS will have work on display at the Greater Pinellas Country Fair in October, and for the first time its members will participate in the annual Florida Botanical Gardens Diggin the Arts Festival.

The purchase included a covered parking space. However, my deed did not include the parking space. Should I ask for my deed to be corrected to include the parking space? A: I must assume that your covered parking space is a limited common element. A limited common element is a common element, which is reserved for the use of a certain unit to the exclusion of all other units, as specified in the Declaration of Condominium. Since your covered parking space is a limited common element, you do not own same; you only have the exclusive right to use same. Therefore, the covered parking space should not appear on your deed and should not appear in your title insurance policy. Limited common elements are initially assigned by the developer or the condominium association, and then subsequently assigned from seller to buyer. The assignment is typically accomplished through a separate document. Q: My condominium consists of 40 units. Twenty of the units are three bedroom/two bathroom units and 20 of the units are two bedroom/two bathroom units. Each unit owner pays the same maintenance fee. This does not seem fair to me. A: Unfortunately, life is not always fair. The Florida Condominium Act provides that a unit owners liability for common expenses must be the same as the unit owners undivided share of ownership in the common elements and common surplus. For residential condominiums created after April 1, 1992, the ownership share of the common elements assigned to each unit must be based either upon the total square footage of each unit in relation to the total square footage of all units in the condominium or on an equal fractional basis. Your developer obviously chose to have all unit owners equally own the common elements and common surplus and to equally share in the costs of maintaining and operating the condominium. To change this method of assessment, an amendment to your Declaration of Condominium would be required. Said amendment would have to be approved by 100 percent of the unit owners and 100 percent of the holders of liens upon units within the condominium. It is most unlikely that such an amendment can be obtained. Q: My condominium association is demanding that I provide it with a key to my unit. For security reasons, I am reluctant to comply with the request. Do I have to provide my association with a key to my unit? A: Section 718.111(5) provides that the association has the irrevocable right of access to each unit during reasonable hours, when necessary for the maintenance, repair, or replacement of any common elements or of any portion of the unit to be maintained by the association, or as necessary to prevent damage to the common elements or to a unit or units. In my opinion, the association has the right to have each unit owner within the condominium provide it with a key to their respective unit. You should request the association to establish safeguards relative to the access to said keys.Florida Condominium law: Questions and answers Peter Hofstra DQ Grill & Chill celebrates Miracle Treat Day Aug. 14SEMINOLE Blizzard Treats will be flowing on Thursday, Aug. 14, during the Dairy Queen Systems ninth annual Miracle Treat Day at the Dairy Queen Grill & Chill restaurant, 10820 Park Blvd., Seminole.

Part Maltese, part Shih Tzu, Misty is 9 years old and her human is Florence Otterstedt of Largo. Mistys picture was submitted by Otterstedts daughter, Carol Baker, to help her mom celebrate her recent 97th birthday. Misty and Florence have been best of friends for the past eight years, ever since she got the dog through a friend at the New 2 U Thrift Store in Seminole. Misty is a silly girl who loves to crawl around on her belly instead of walking, and she also loves fresh veggies. Misty follows Florence everywhere and stays right by her when she works in the garden. She even walks around with all the ducks in the backyard. Misty loves to ride around in the basket on her human moms trike. That is, when she isnt out for a spin in her VW Beetle, which Florence got at the thrift store where she volunteers. Misty and Florence are inseparable and has been Florences best friend since her husband died six years ago. Misty will only eat her food if Florence sits with her until shes done. As the pet photo of the month winner, she has won a $25 gift certificate to Largo Feed and Garden Supply, either in Largo or Pinellas Park.

Pet Photo Contest Sponsored byLargo Feed210 West Bay Dr, Largo, FL 727-581-8743 & Park Feed5775 Park Blvd. Pinellas Park 727-546-7503We live in Florida; it is late summer, so the drumbeat for hurricane preparedness is slowly getting louder and louder. Of course, you have already made preparations for your pet; you have extra food and water, a cage for temporary housing and even an extra supply of their medicines and supplements. Your pet was already microchipped, so you should be set. ... Or are you? Microchips are the size of a grain of rice and offer permanent identification for your pet. If your pet were to get lost (or stolen see the www.TBNweekly.com October 10, 2013s Protect your pets with a microchip), the microchip can lead your pet back to you, but only if it works properly. Microchips are hardy little devices. They have no batteries and seldom stop working, but occasionally they do. Either from trauma, or a shock, or just bad luck, they can stop functioning. If your veterinarian doesnt confirm that the microchip is working, ask him or her to check it on your pets next visit. Unfortunately, many functioning microchips do not provide protection due to other reasons. The standard place of microchip placement for dogs and cats is under the skin, along the back near the shoulders. Some microchips can slip and migrate to other parts of the body. If the microchip has moved to a completely odd location, near a foot or on the underside of the belly, a scanner could miss it, which makes it useless. The most common reason for a microchip failure is not due to the device itself, but rather due to the database. The microchip stores no personal information about you or your pet, just a nineto 15-digit string of numbers and letters. When someone contacts the microchip database with this number, it should be attached to the personal information about the owner and the pet. If that information is wrong, the microchip is useless. Incorrect microchip database information occurs for many reasons. Sometimes the implanter just fails to inform the database company. Often times, people move or change their phone numbers and dont think to update the microchip information. Due to clerical errors, numbers can be accidentally transposed, which lead to disastrous results. I recommend checking your information yearly, just to be sure your pets protection is up to date.Those who are unsure where to call to check this information can enter their pets microchip number into www.petmicro chiplookup.org, which will direct you to the appropriate database. Microchips are truly amazing and fantastic tools for our pets. Like many tools, however, they need to be maintained to have them work properly. If your pets are not yet microchipped, I implore you to do so. So many pets have been rescued due to working microchips. If your pets are already microchipped, take a few minutes and confirm that your pets are protected. Those few minutes could make a world of difference.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www.LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, August 14, 2014I guess Ill never get rid of Hurricane Charley. I was asked by my friends and former coworkers at the Osceola News-Gazette to write about the storm from my perspective as assistant editor of that newspaper 10 years ago. August 13 marks the 10th anniversary of the storm, and the NewsGazette is publishing articles about the event. I remember going to a political function Aug. 12, 2004, knowing that Hurricane Charley was likely to hit Kissimmee. I was immersed so much in the jokes and news tips that I didnt think much about how we should cover Charley. As the bands from Charley loomed overhead early the next afternoon, I began to sense that the storm had the potential to cause widespread damage. Did it ever. Charley came hard and fast that evening, Friday, Aug. 13. It was a Category 4 storm. I woke up the next morning to find a 16foot oak tree lying in my back yard, along with branches and other debris. Sprawling oak trees, at maturity, are rightfully loved for their grace and shade. But in a storm such as Charley, they are dangerous instruments of the devil as they wreak havoc upon utility poles, houses, streets and other structures. Walking through the neighborhood, I saw shredded roofs, mangled fences and fallen power lines. Ill never forget the tired face on the woman sitting in a chair on her front porch. A look of disbelief, hopelessness. After interviewing neighbors, I started to drive toward downtown Kissimmee, to assess the damage at the newspaper office. My editor was on vacation in the backwoods of Alaska on a volunteer work project so I had to come up with a plan to cover Charley. I didnt even own a cell phone then so I was out of touch with my staff and correspondents. Not sure if it would have made any difference, as cell phone service was limited, too. I had to trust that journalists instincts would rule the day. The damage to the office was minimal, just a crippled awning, but the power was out. Along Broadway, shattered glass from storefront windows filled the sidewalks. I uttered a few curse words under my breath. God, what a mess. So many lives affected. However, utility crews were already restoring power. Since our office was on the same grid as the police stations, I was told, we should have service that Monday. Otherwise, God only knows when wed be able to put out the paper possibly three days late and useful to some readers only for catching bird droppings in a cage. While I was downtown, I checked on a friend who lived nearby. She said she and her boys were OK, except for her old twostory house being unbearably hot. A big hug and good-byes. Then I went to a nearby mall where people were lining up for food and water from a state agency. Gov. Jeb Bush came through for Kissimmee. Didnt sleep well that Sunday. The steady hum of generators, the smell of rotting wood and the intense heat kept me awake half the night. I met with my staff Monday morning, and we wasted little time in deciding upon assignments. Somebody would do the main story; others would do features, sidebars as we call them as much as we can. Also important was to provide a list of agencies for people to call to get help. The correspondents came through with plenty of photos. This was before any of us except the staff photographer had a digital camera so we had to take rolls of film to photo shops and drug stores to have them processed, if memory serves me right. Everybody pitched in on the coverage, including the publisher. The destruction was unbelievable, from severed railroad crossing arms to crushed airplane hangars to houses left with no roofs and fallen trees everywhere. The phones rang constantly and I lost my temper when a receptionist patched through a call from a woman wanting to know whom she could call to have her fallen bushes removed. Not now. Call back six weeks from now and maybe we can help you. The power was still out in my house; I slept in the office for two nights just to keep cool. On Wednesday morning, I had to decide upon a headline, called the banner, which would run across the page. As I recall, it was Charley, what a mess you made. Probably not my best. In hindsight, I think the headline should have read, Charley, you miserable S.O.B. We got the paper out, and we went out for drinks that Friday on the company, of course, as a reward for our hard work. I complimented the staff on the work they did. Thank God were done with that. To hell with hurricanes. One of our staff members lost power for three weeks, as I recall. Others also had problems to take care of, thanks to Charley. Nevertheless, we did our jobs. I like to think we helped some people. Lessons learned from a journalists standpoint? Maybe a few. Make sure you have plenty of gas. Call the people back who are worried about you, even if youre busy. Dont walk on water-soaked streets where power lines are down. Be safe and just do the best you can. Trust your employees to succeed. After my experience with Charley, I had no desire to cover hurricanes again. Then came Frances and Jeanne. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSSeminoles leaders show lack of understanding about Greenlight planEditor: Over the past two years, Ive enjoyed many robust, interesting and educational conversations with Pinellas County residents about the Greenlight Pinellas Plan. The opportunity to share how it will vastly improve the quality of life for our residents and the ability to foster economic growth and prosperity for everyone has been very satisfying. While not everyone has agreed with me, at least theyve had the opportunity to hear the benefits and now have a greater understanding of the plan. Recently, Seminoles leaders voted to become the only city not to support the Greenlight Pinellas plan. It was disappointing. Clearly, there was a lack of understanding of some very fundamental facts. The truth is this: Greenlight Pinellas is a solid plan not only for Seminole, but also for all of Pinellas County. Seminole residents will enjoy new rapid bus service every 15-20 minutes. New early morning, late night and weekend service will be available as well as increased door-to-door connector service for seniors and the disabled. New community circulator buses connecting riders with shopping, schools and libraries will be available for our citizens. Our veterans will have easier access to Bay Pines Hospital. Students will be able to arrive for classes at St. Petersburg College knowing there will be a bus later in the evening to bring them home and on weekends, as well. Tourists will be able to come from the beach to enjoy the new Seminole City Center. Were a big county with a big population. That means people need options. As our population ages, the ability to be mobile, independent and go shopping or to the doctors office, or just have lunch with a friend are the qualities that keep us healthy and active. Greenlight Pinellas is poised to give our residents these choices. We should all care deeply about what our county will be like 20 years from now. Its for our kids and our grandchildren that we should be moving this initiative forward. Beginning this fall, students at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus will receive a U-pass giving them free bus service as the result of a new partnership between St. Petersburg College and PSTA. Our businesses will have access to a larger workforce that can reliably and safely get to work on time. Well be able to recruit and retain our young people who prefer to live and work in walkable communities were public transportation can be relied on to get them where they want to go. The new millennias care about this issue and it is a No. 1 top priority for them. Seminole residents have a lot riding on our transit future as traffic congestion gets worse every year. Seminole city commissioners still have an opportunity to embrace a vision for the future that can help us move forward, literally. The good news is that theres time for Seminoles leaders to reconsider their vote, and hear from their residents who are calling for more choices when it comes to getting around our city and county. Last month, I joined six other county commissioners in voting to eliminate PSTAs portion of Pinellas homeowners property taxes, saving $32 million per year in advance of Greenlight Pinellas. That was the right thing to do and it took the kind of long-term vision, leadership and courage that I know Seminole leaders understand. As a city, a county and a region, it is critical that we take advantage of every opportunity if we expect to become a world-class destination for businesses to open, families to relocate, seniors to retire and visitors to explore. With so many benefits for all, Greenlight Pinellas is one opportunity we cant afford to miss. Janet Long Pinellas County commissioner SeminoleSeminole councils opposition to Greenlight dishearteningEditor: As a Seminole resident, I am very disappointed that our City Council failed to endorse the Greenlight Pinellas transit improvement plan. Through a modest and fair tax switch, the Greenlight Pinellas plan would more than double the current transit service in our city, a need highlighted by the Vice Mayor when he pointed out how current routes, which only run once an hour, dont attract new riders. Greenlight Pinellas, however, could be the solution by significantly increasing the frequency of buses in Seminole (along with other parts of the county) and running bus service at night to support second shift workers. On greenlightpinellas.com I read that if this funding switch isnt passed, PSTA will have to cut bus service by nearly a third. How is that going to make the city of Seminole better? Watching Seminole City Council oppose Greenlight Pinellas based on a few negative emails and comments and without truly recognizing the benefits to Seminole residents of the improved transit plan was disheartening. My family and I strongly urge the Seminole City Council to take another look and support the Greenlight Pinellas plan to move our county forward. Robert Glass SeminoleCity manager model fails in SeminoleRe: Council censures Plantamura, Seminole Beacon, July 17, by Tiffany Razzano.Editor: It is important that we understand that the city manager model is the failure in Seminole. Twenty years ago the city went with the manager concept, and it is a failure. We budget $250,000 annually for the office. That figure, times 20 years, equals $5 million dollars. That could have been invested in our city. Invested in improving our streets, sidewalks, city parks, lighting, and improved the quality of life here in Seminole. That is just the office of city manager. The next two positions in this model, director of finance, and director of development, both cost us over six figures each annually. And on it goes. A failed model. And this city manager leaving is time to ask the current Charter Revision Committee to suggest alternatives to the manager system. Such as a strong mayor/council. As this resident as a member of the previous Charter Revision Committee suggested years ago. The one striking thing that jumps out at you when visiting our City Hall is the absence of elected folks. The current system leaves them out of the equation. There should always be elected people at City Hall to interact with our residents. A mayor/council format would accomplish this. As all elected officials would then have responsibilities and committee assignments that would require their presence at City Hall often. As for this spurious, and possible sexist, recent censure nonsense instigated by the guy who was never elected to the City Council, it is important that we recognize that Patricia Plantamura is todate the recipient of the largest voter plurality. That year removing Thomas Barnhorn from the council. Then re-elected easily defeating Chris Burke, who was never elected to the council. As for Bob Matthews, who had a similar situation when he was voted off the council, then appointed, he then tried to go after Seminole City Clerk Rose Benoit as well. As stated in a previous letter, let the manager go, and take Matthews with him. Tom Christy SeminoleLack of coverage boggles the mindEditor: Sports fans in Pinellas County once again were given the short end of the stick on viewing the Major League Hall of Fame induction at fabled Cooperstown, N.Y., on July 27 because the Major League Baseball network isnt linked to any one of our four cable systems in the 17th ranked market in the nation. It boggles the mind as to why it was not aired on ESPN as it is with its NFL counterpart. Just defies logic when ESPN discards the baseball awards, which wasnt always the case. Then, FOX Network should do the honors as long as they carry the All-Star Games, the playoffs and the World Series. As for ESPN, their mid-summer crown jewel is the home run derby and the playoffs. The Tampa Bay area fans as well as the LaRussa family got the shaft with this lack of continuity. We deserve better. Art Bailey Seminole A couple of days ago I heard the expression soup-and-fish for the first time in many years. It translates into formal mens wear or a tuxedo. It was popular in the 1920s and thereafter. I first ran into soup-and-fish in the summer of 1954 in Atlantic City, N.J. I had completed two years of college, and had taken a job as a desk clerk at a mid-sized hotel not far from the Boardwalk. Its owners were Joseph Blaker, a pint-sized nicotine addict, age 60 or so, and his buxom, all-knowing wife, whose first name Ive forgotten. The hotels chief (and only) bellman was a huge, wall-eyed black man named Craft. He was a study in calm, suppressed irritation, triggered a dozen times a day when Mr. Blaker called out Craft! each time any sort of problem or errand arose. Two other desk clerks, hired to help with the summer crowds, were a pair of courtly gay men. They were old friends of the Blakers, and operated a part-time hostelry in the Catskills. The housekeeper was Mrs. Mostly, a snobbish lifetime Atlantic City resident. She delighted in harking back to the time when no decent woman would think of stepping onto the Boardwalk without wearing a hat and white gloves. That day was long gone. By 1954 the automobile had opened the citys gates to barbarians from Philadelphia, Newark and other urban wastelands. The Blakers dined out often. When setting up a dinner engagement with another couple, Mr. Blaker would ask them, soup-and-fish? This would establish how nifty the men would dress. Their wives followed accordingly, I suppose. The hotel itself was not fashionable. In truth, it was sort of an old folks home. Its summer clientele were mostly guests who had vacationed there each summer for decades. They were almost all middle-aged gentiles, and happy to be so. The Blakers did their best to screen out Jews and (God forbid!) blacks. But a few slipped in. When that happened the Blakers fluttered about, polite but distressed, until the unwanted intruders departed. The hotels chief attraction was the food. Over the years Mr. Blaker had somehow retained the service of a superb chef. In addition to my $35 weekly pay I had the full run of the menu, three meals a day. It was a superb summer of dining. As we all enjoyed our lobster, roast beef and baked Alaska, the reassuring sounds of Mantovanis orchestra filled the room. In Washington, the House UnAmerican Activities Committee was hard at work, hounding Hollywoods pinkos and making life safer for the rest of us. Ike was in full charge of the White House and the nation. Who could ask for anything more? I manned the front desk every day for three months. One day Id work 6 a.m. to noon and 6 p.m. to midnight. Next day, noon to 6 p.m. only. Not a bad routine, and plenty of time for the beach or drinking beer with Craft at a local bar. He had dozens of tales about the Blakers, their guests and Atlantic City. As the summer began I had visions of befriending an assortment of young, unattached female guests as they registered. This dream never materialized. The ladies I checked in (and checked out) were mostly past 40, portly, married, and had no interest in scrawny, impecunious desk clerks. The citys beach, Boardwalk, hotels and annual Miss America pageant (held each September to keep tourists coming after Labor Day) had made Atlantic City one of Americas entertainment bright spots from 1930 until World War II. After the war the luster began to fade, as Americas love of glitz went westward. By 1954 the citys slide into shabbiness was well underway. With the arrival of the gambling casino era in 1976 some of the citys glamour began to return. I never went back to Atlantic City. That was 60 years ago, but I still have an assortment of memories. Salt air, saltwater taffy, greasy fries, the horse diving off the Steel Pier, the hucksters selling gadgets on the Boardwalk, lovely women strolling, streetwalkers walking, lonely oldsters pulling slot-machine handles, and the endless quest for joy that was too-seldom found. In September I went home to Pennsylvania. With my munificent desk-clerk earnings I bought my first car. It was a 1932 Oldsmobile with a rumble seat, spare tires on the fenders, and a rear-window shade that pulled down for privacy. I nicknamed the car Tillie. I took her back to college and began the most delightful soup-and-fish year of my life.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is email@example.com.Charley?

SINCE 1960 OPENSATURDAY& SUNDAY7AM TOPMFREEPARKING 011614FLEA MARKET OVER 150 DEALERS ER Living in the Sunshine State, sun protection should be at the forefront of all of our minds. We live in a gorgeous state with tons of outdoor activities to enjoy. However, proper sunscreen use, wearing UV protective sunglasses, and sun protective clothing, is crucial. This article will focus on the importance of sunscreen use and what to look for when selecting sunscreens and sunblocks. Sunscreens are chemical agents that help protect our skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. Ultraviolet radiation comes in three forms: Ultraviolet A, B and C (UVA, UVB and UVC). UVA penetrates the skin deeper than UVB and is thought to cause more skin cancers as well as having a much greater effect on photo-aging and wrinkling of the skin. UVC is blocked by the ozone layer; however, tanning beds emit this kind of harmful ultraviolet radiation. UVB rays are the burning rays and most auto glass and windows block these rays. UVA penetrates through auto glass and significant exposure may occur while driving. SPF means Sun Protection Factor and only refers to protection from UVB, not UVA. Overthe-counter sunscreens help block UVA and UVB, but there is a difference between sunscreens and sunblocks. An SPF of 15 blocks approximately 93 percent of the UVB. An SPF of 30 is not twice as effective; it only blocks 97 percent. An SPF of 45 blocks about 98 percent. These are not big differences, but in some people it may make a significant difference over time. There is currently no SPF rating for UVA. Therefore, look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen. In practice, we sometimes get asked the question, Do sunscreens cause cancer? There have been some news reports recently by the Environmental Working Group questioning the cancer causing potential of the Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) or oxybenzone found in many sunscreens. Many experts feel that Vitamin A is actually an antioxidant that may provide additional protection from harmful UV rays. Oxybenzone, a synthetic estrogen, is excellent at UVA protection. In a study with rats, Oxybenzone was thought to interfere with the balance of the bodys hormones and lead to free radical formation. The theory is that there is an increased risk of skin cancer, namely melanoma. The truth is that Oxybenzone has been available for 20 plus years and has been studied extensively. The Skin Cancer Foundations photobiology committee has reviewed Oxybenzone and is not concerned with these accusations of Oxybenzone and rats. Another question we get asked is, If I dont have sun exposure, how will I get Vitamin D? Vitamin D is converted from an inactive form to an active form by UVB exposure. The issue becomes to weigh the risk potential from UVB and the benefit of Vitamin D. There is little argument that we all need Vitamin D, especially for a strong skeletal system.However, the recommendation is that we obtain our Vitamin D from our diet, not UVB exposure. The amount of Vitamin D recommended depends on your age and gender. It is important to check with your doctor about your Vitamin D level and what they recommend for your daily intake. One of my favorite sun protection lines is La Roche-Posay. They have an excellent line of products with Mexoryl and CellOx shield. This particular line was approved in Europe before the USA and therefore has been graded for UVA protection in Europe. Using the La Roche-Posay line is one way to ensure you are adequate UVA and UVB protected. I also am a big fan of sun protective clothing, hats, and umbrellas. There are many websites and stores that carry wonderful, trendy looking sun protective clothing. Using sun protective clothing and hats, as well as a broad-spectrum sunscreen has additive benefits. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Malignant melanoma is a deadly form of skin cancer on the rise and sun exposure has been linked to it as well as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. It is prudent to become educated on sun protection and sun avoidance. It is also important to get routine skin exams from a qualified health care professional. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Avoid sun during the peak hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater every day. Use sun protective clothing, hats, and umbrellas in addition to sunscreens. Apply 30 minutes before going out in the sun. Reapply every 80 minutes or more frequently, if sweating or swimming. Avoid tanning beds. They have been shown to increase the risk of malignant melanoma the deadliest form of skin cancer. Get skin exams annually by a qualified expert in skin cancer. The ABCDEs of moles and melanoma is a good guideline to use to monitor your moles.

Armbruster grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, as one of nine children. After graduating high school in 1990, he joined the Marines and saw four tours of combat in the Gulf War, Somalia, Haiti and Iraq. During his 2009 tour in Iraq, five marines were involved in an IED explosion and Armbruster was the only survivor. This tragedy cost him his left leg, and eventually his right leg after doctors were unable to save it. He retired from the Marines in 2011 and settled in Florida in 2012. He has two daughters Alicia, age 22, and Allyson, age 7 and a 4-yearold grandson named Caleb. When Armbruster is discharged from Countryside Rehab and Healthcare, his goal is to get a job as a patient advocate for amputees.Morton Plant and Mease Countryside hospitals expand services CLEARWATER Morton Plant and Mease Countryside hospitals recently enhanced their obstetrics units with a new program that provides board-certified, experienced obstetric doctors in the hospitals around the clock. The hospitals also have opened Obstetric Urgent Care for expectant mothers who are experiencing an emergency. Located adjacent to the Labor and Delivery units, the OB Urgent Care units at Morton Plant Hospital and Mease Countryside Hospital will be available on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week for pregnant women who either do not have an obstetrician, whose doctor is unavailable or has chosen to partner with the hospitalists, or who need emergency care. With hospital-based doctors and its own dedicated unit, this program provides an extra level of care and can offer more expedited emergency care to pregnant women, said Marcia Albanese in a press release. Albanese is director of Womens and Childrens Services for Morton Plant Mease Health Care. Morton Plant and Mease Countrysides OB/GYN Hospitalist Program provides around-the-clock access to board-certified physicians specifically trained in obstetrics and gynecology. Mease Countryside has offered the program since January, and Morton Plant began its program in June. Through the program, physicians are always on site, ready to work with mothers in labor, whether the patient has a physician or to step in for standard and emergency procedures. The OB hospitalists will examine patients, evaluate and monitor the progress of labor, review lab results, handle emergencies and answer patients questions.Briefs

Fortunately, catching plenty of live bait for the day is becoming easier with each passing week. Juvenile pilchards are now just the right size for targeting trout and Spanish mackerel, which appear to be lurking around almost every deep grass flat with good current flow along the Intracoastal Waterway. With the water temperature in the extreme shallows reaching 90 degrees in the afternoon, redfishing has been pretty tough at times. Making deep, clean grass flats the obvious choice for finding fast enough action to make you forget about just how hot it is, at least until lunchtime. Paying attention to a few signs will pay off when looking for these potential hot spots. Clean water is most likely the most important. Find that area of deep grass that you can easily make out the many sand spots that make perfect ambush spots for predatory fish. Then, having good current flow at these spots will help to stack the bait up around the sand edges, and in turn attract the schools of mackerel. And the bonus sign would be the presence of birds diving and skimming the surface as they take advantage of the possible feeding frenzy taking place beneath the surface. If you plan on fishing with artifices, your best bet would be to drift when the winds are light. Fan cast with buck tail jigs, small spoons or sub-surface twitch baits. Live baiters will do well with live pilchards fished under a float when the tides is light and then free-lined when the current starts to pick up. If youre looking for live bait (i.e. pilchards), target the swash channel along the beach when winds are out of the east and sand shoals around the passes when its too rough on the beach.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein McGough acquires hawksLARGO The Friends of Largo Nature Parks recently revealed that McGough Nature Park is the new home for two red-shouldered hawks. The female, Gwen, who was found with a permanently damaged wing by one of the Friends became a surrogate mother to 10 baby hawks she was also caring for. Nine of them were eventually released back into the wild, while one male, born partially blind, bonded with Gwen and also will remain in the parks care. Because of their injuries, neither Gwen, nor the young male could survive in the wild. The Friends of the Largo Nature Parks is seeking the publics input to help name the new male hawk. Submit suggestions by email to natureparks@ largo.com. Entries will be accepted through Sept. 12. Name suggestions also may be conveyed in person by visiting McGough Nature Park, 11901 146th St. N. The Friends will then vote on their favorite submission and announce the name of the male hawk on Sept. 20, 3 to 6 p.m., at the Welcome Home Hawks event at McGough Nature Park. The event will offer an opportunity for the public to become educated on the birds of prey program and conservation. The public also may contribute to the support of the hawks by becoming a member of, volunteering with, or making a donation to the Friends of the Largo Nature Parks. For information on donating to this organization, call 518-3047 or visit the nature center at McGough Nature Park.

It takes three horrific visitations from Christmas spirits to eventually elicit Scrooges generosity. One of the beneficiaries of his generosity, we are led to believe in Dickens tale, is a little lame boy named Tiny Tim. Bent and stunted by his lameness, which Dickens never explains, we are also led to believe that, without Scrooges change of heart, Tiny Tim will be dead within the year. It is part of Dickens art to make us love little lame Tiny Tim. Doll-like and delicate, Tiny Tim cannot run and play the same as the other kids. We do not see his dramatic dependence on his family as weakness. We see him as a small flickering light of love. For what his crooked little flame lacks in normalcy, Tiny Tims spirit supplies in gentleness and the kind of courage that the rest of us only dream about. This is because the basic movements that the rest of us take for granted, like walking, require the greatest of efforts on his part. Forget skipping, running, or dancing. There is a dolphin counterpart to Dickens Tiny Tim in the Johns Pass study area, which Capt. John Heidemann and I monitor under federal permit. Instead of Tiny Tim, we could call it Tiny Twig. When the tiny shiny calf was born to local lady dolphin Stick last summer, we named it Twig as a good play on words. We named Stick 10 years ago when, as a tiny tot dolphin herself, she played a game of catch with a seaside stick. Twig arrived in late August 2013. We saw Stick within just hours after Twigs birth. Twig was the youngest newborn I had seen to that point. At the time, Dolphin Watch reported how Twigs tiny newborn tailstock seemed to spring up almost reflexively after each downward stroke of the peduncle (same as tailstock). Sometimes, its reflexive spring even pitched tiny Twig forward comically. It might surprise you to hear that newborn dolphins do not know how to swim, though they have the basic idea. They must first exercise and strengthen their muscles. For the first many days, they struggle with their swimming lessons. Nonetheless, I had not seen Twigs particular type of funny little reflexive spring before. Therefore, at the time, I assumed it was because I had not seen such a fresh newborn before. Twig was just hours old. And maybe I was right. Twig accompanied mom Stick through the fall and winter, or rather Twig did its best to remain in Sticks vicinity. Pregnancy and motherhood flipped a switch in Stick. She became an eating machine. Tiny dolphin calves usually stay close to their hunting mothers. But Sticks hunger often took her frighteningly far from her Tiny Twig. In April 2014, we found Twig spending an inordinate amount of time at a dangerous distance from its mother Stick. Too young to hunt or to know it was supposed to, Twig amused itself by greeting each passing boat like a miniature aspiring politician or, in the family tradition, playing with a stick. Dolphin Watch reported, with a certain amount of concern, that Stick had continued her unique brand of laissez-faire mothering. For it was Stick who spent an inordinate amount of time at a dangerous distance from her calf Twig. I remember deciding to detach myself from Sticks winsome offspring, for it seemed surely destined to be dead within the year. It was after I made that decision to detach myself that it dawned on me that Twigs peduncle may be partially paralyzed. This is because Twig submerged with a steep dive posture that all dolphins can do. The difference was that Twig used the steep dive posture every time, which no other dolphin does. In addition, all dolphins sometimes flip up the flukes over the water when diving steeply, sounding like a whale. But this is fairly rare. Poor little Tiny Twig sounds like a whale with every submergence. That means Twig works much, much harder to swim like a dolphin than other dolphins do. The basic dolphin movements we take for granted require Twigs greatest of efforts. Forget leaping or rocketing around the seas like the other kids. By July, Twig was still with Stick. But there had been changes. One change is that Stick had started being a much better mother, surfacing faithfully at Twigs side. A second change was that Twig seemed to cope with its paralyzed peduncle much better, not sounding as often nor as dramatically as before. A third change was fleeting but encouraging: We found a large group of dolphins that included Stick. After some minutes on the group, I turned to Capt. Heidemann and said, You know who is not here, dont you? And he nodded as he concurred, Yeah, Twig. Then suddenly there was a flurry at the back of the dolphin parade as Twig charged back into the group with two calf playmates from their playground behind the adults. Ah, Twig is learning to play!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. The Giver is based on Lois Lowrys beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Dinosaur 13Genre: Documentary Cast: Peter Larson Director: Todd Douglas Miller Not rated When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the worlds greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime: the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found. But during a 10-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.FrankGenre: Comedy Cast: Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy, Carla Aza and Francois Civil Director: Lenny Abrahamson Rated: R Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson follows up his awardwinning films Adam & Paul, Garage and What Richard Did with an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avantgarde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Written by Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan, Frank is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson. It is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.Life After BethGenre: Comedy and horror Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser and Anna Kendrick Director: Jeff Baena Rated: R Zach (Dane DeHaan) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isnt quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zachs whole world takes a turn for the worse.RagnarokGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Pl Sverre Hagen, Nicolai Cleve Broch, Bjrn Sundquist and Sofia Helin Director: Mikkel Sandemose Rated: PG-13 Sigurd Svendsen (Pl Sverre Hagen) is a Norwegian archaeologist who is fascinated by a viking ship found at the Oseberg burial mound. He believes that a runic inscription on the ship, which translates to "man knows little," holds the key to understanding the Norse myth of Photo courtesy of MAGNET RELEASING Pl Sverre Hagen stars in Ragnarok, a Magnet Release. Ragnarok: the day when heaven and earth are destroyed. After finding similar inscriptions on a stone in Northern Norway, Sigurd, along with his kids and a colleague, begins an expedition to uncover the secret of the day of doom.The Trip to ItalyGenre: Comedy Cast: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Director: Michael Winterbottom Not rated Michael Winterbottoms largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon or semifictionalized versions thereof on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batmans vocal register, the artistic merits of Jagged Little Pill, and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.

Tickets start at $45. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall .com. McDonald and the members of Toto are old friends, dating back years prior to the singer's appearance on Toto's I'll Be Over You, from the Fahrenheit album in 1986. Toto members Mike Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro and Steve Lukather collaborate with McDonald on his RIAA gold certified solo debut If That's What It Takes (1982). The trio all performed on That's Why and No Such Luck, while Jeff laid down the drums and Luke contributed guitar on I Keep Forgettin'. Lukather also played on I Gotta Try and Believe In It. In 1977, Keyboardist David Paich arranged horns and strings on the Doobie Brothers Livin' on the Fault Line. Even earlier, in 1972, Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro extended the invitation to McDonald to join Steely Dan. "I so look forward to the dates I'll play with Toto this Summer, McDonald said in a press release promoting the tour. Not only because they're old friends but also because they're one of the most talented and significant American bands." "I cant wait to get out on the road with Michael McDonald and his band, Totos Steve Porcaro said. There is some deep history between us and its always a great hang. Michael surrounds himself with the best people, the crowds are great, and I for one, never tire of hearing his amazing band play and hearing those classic songs sung by one of my all time favorites."Michael McDonaldOver the course of four Steely Dan albums, from Katy Lied to Gaucho, McDonald became an integral part of the groups sound contributing backing vocals on classic tracks like Rose Darling, Any World That Im Welcome To and Peg. In 1975, another session player friend, Jeff Baxter, asked McDonald to join The Doobie Brothers. It was on 1976s Takin It To The Streets LP that McDonald really hit his stride artistically. Channeling his Motown and R&B roots through a more relaxed West Coast sensibility, his songs had a laid-back groove and emotional immediacy that record buyers and radio embraced. And at the heart of it all, there was that unmistakable voice. McDonald belongs to an elite group of blue-eyed soul vocalists Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, Daryl Hall whose sound is recognizable after a mere two notes. Much like the members of Toto, McDonald was a sought after session player in Los Angeles in the s. Aside from his hits with The Doobies as well as a solo artist, McDonald lent his voice to records by various artists, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill, Grizzly Bear and Holy Ghost. Meanwhile, his solo career in the s and s zoomed from success to success on the wings of evergreen hits like I Keep Forgettin, Sweet Freedom, On My Own (a duet with Patti LaBelle) and the Grammywinning duet with James Ingram Yah Mo Be There. McDonald continues to tour the world, from Europe to Asia to Australia, while moonlighting alongside Donald Fagen and Boz Scaggs with The Dukes Of September, an 11-piece soul supergroup. As one more feather in his cap, in May 2011, McDonald received an honorary doctorate from Berklee School Of Music. Though McDonalds illustrious career has encompassed every variety of success, from five Grammy Awards and hit singles to sold-out concerts and highprofile collaborations, he doesnt hesitate when asked whats the most meaningful part of it. Bottom line, theres nothing better than when Im up on stage playing music with my friends, McDonald said. Or when Im in the studio listening to something play back with the guys, and we have this kind of collective zoom in our hearts over a good take. Thats the happiest Im ever going to be. I think when you try to measure your success by any other standards, you wind up expecting too much. You have to learn that its the simple thrills that matter.TotoFew ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of Toto. As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5,000 albums that together amass a sales history of half a billion albums. Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations. With more than 35 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top selling tour and recording acts in the world. They are the benchmark by which many artists base their sound and production, and they continue to transcend the standards set by the entire music community, being simply synonymous with musical credibility. They are one of the few s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles, and more than 35 years in to a career enjoy a multi-generational fan base. Toto recently released th Anniversary Tour Live in Poland via Eagle Rock. Filmed on June 25, 2013 in Lodz, Poland, the offering captures the band in the midst of a standing-room-only European tour of 29 cities staging successful concerts Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Toto World Tour 2013 featured Luke, David Paich, Steve Porcaro on keyboards, and singer Joseph Williams, who sang the hits Pamela and Stop Loving You on the worldwide platinum release The Seventh One (1988). Williams is also featured on the platinum certified Fahrenheit (1986), Toto XX (1998), the track Bottom of Your Soul on Falling In Between (2006), and the multi-platinum release Past to Present 1977-1990 issued in 1990. The band is working on a new studio album planned for release in 2015. It will be their first since Falling In Between (2006). The repertoire is coming together so naturally it is as though we never took a break from creating as Toto in the studio, said keyboardist David Paich in a press release. Paich is a founding member of the band. For the fans who have been waiting patiently and continually showing the band support and love over the last decade or so, this ones for you. Collectively we cant wait to share these recordings with the world.

In fact, Amos will be right here in Tampa Bay on her birthday when she performs Friday, Aug. 22, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road. Tickets start at $43.25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.ruth eckerdhall.com. Amos recently celebrated a professional milestone, too. On July 30, Jezebel.com had the honor of hosting the world premiere of Amos video for Promise, a new single from her latest album, Unrepentant Geraldines, and her first major collaboration with her daughter Natashya. Its been 22 years since Amos released her groundbreaking debut album, Little Earthquakes, which enjoyed bounteous critical success though it peaked outside the Top 50 on the Billboard 200. Singles such as Silent All These Years, China, Winter and Crucify garnered attention initially on alternative radio programs. Videos for the singles entered the rotation on MTV and Amos appeared on television programs such as Late Night with David Letterman, CBS This Morning and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Since then, Amos has sold more than 12 million albums. She has played more than a thousand shows and has won numerous awards. Amos continues to be adored, picking up new fans along the way, romanced by her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness and her utterly peerless sound. Unrepentant Geraldines, released by Mercury Classics in May, continues that tradition. It is the sound of a singer-songwriter returning with elevating vigor to the intimate songwriting craftsmanship that illuminated her as a unique talent two decades ago.Synthpop rocker to raisin girl Success didnt come overnight for Tori Amos. Prior to her debut solo album Little Earthquakes, Amos fronted the synthpop band Y Kant Tori Read from 1984-89. Before that, she spent years in classical training at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. She began singing in clubs and bars at age 13. Little Earthquakes showcased Amos piano rock and raw, confessional poetry. The same year that album came out, Amos also released Crucify, a five-song EP featuring two tracks from Little Earthquakes Crucify and Winter as well as three cover songs. Amos adaptations of The Rolling Stones Angie, the Led Zeppelin song Thank You and, particularly, Nirvanas Smells Like Teen Spirit began getting modest airplay on alternate and community radio stations. Amos second studio album, Under the Pink, was released in 1994. The album peaked at No. 12 in the United States and debuted at No. 1 in the UK. The album produced four singles, including God, Cornflake Girl, Pretty Good Year and Past the Mission, a song which featured backing vocals by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor. On the UK singles chart, Cornflake Girl hit No. 4 and was considered her most successful international hit of the 1990s. The song includes references to cornflake girls those who are narrow-minded and generally intolerant and raisin girls those who are more likely to embrace diversity. Amos defines herself in the first line, singing Never was a cornflake girl. Amos next released Boys for Pele in 1996. This album included the singles Caught a Lite Sneeze, Talula, Professional Widow and Hey Jupiter. Dance remixes of Professional Widow reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts in the United States. In the Springtime of His Voodoo was also remixed and released as a dance single. Amos other studio albums include From the Choirgirl Hotel (1998), To Venus and Back (1999), Strange Little Girls (2001), Scarlets Walk (2002), The Beekeeper (2005), American Doll Posse (2007), Abnormally Attracted to Sin (2009), Midwinter Graces (2009), Night of Hunters (2011), Gold Dust (2012) and her new release, Unrepentant Geraldines, 2014. According to her biography provided by Mercury Records, Amos known best for multifaceted, filigreed piano rock has routinely experimented with different musical styles and instruments during the course of her career. Her studio albums range from the baroque dusk of Boys for Pele, to the electronic experimentalism of From the Choirgirl Hotel and To Venus and Back. Her successful concept album American Doll Posse was followed by the acclaimed Christmas record Midwinter Graces.. In 2011, she returned to the classical world with the classically inspired song cycle Night of Hunters. Her 13th studio album, 2012s Gold Dust, was a varied selection of works from her songbook all newly arranged for vocals, piano and orchestra, recorded with the Metropole Orchestra for Deutsche Grammophon/Mercury Classics. Amos confronts the reality of lifes many challenges through her lyrics and she has addressed a variety of poignant subjects over the last two decades. As her biography states, she has famously put her own experiences both positive and harrowing into song in a style that is both intimately autobiographical but simultaneously approachable and inspirational.Unrepentant GeraldinesTori Amos Unrepentant Geraldines her 14th studio album was released in May. A press release from Mercury Classics announcing the new album described Unrepentant Geraldines as a return to her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs of exquisite beauty following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years. The album is pop/rock in both content and feel, and one step further in the evolution of one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation. The album debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200. The first single, Troubles Lament, was followed by Promise, the track which Amos' daughter appears as a duet partner. A pioneer across multiple platforms, Amos was the first major label artist to offer a single for download. She has had her songs turned into graphic novels and has produced groundbreaking videos throughout her career. Amos is also a noted humanitarian and co-founder of Photo by AMARPAUL KALIRAI/MERCURY CLASSICSTori Amos takes the stage at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Aug. 22. Amos is touring in support of her new Mercury Classics release Unrepentant Geraldines.RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), which is the United States largest anti-sexual assault organization. Right now, Amos is an artist working at the height of her powers. Despite her busy recording and touring schedule, in 2013, she saw the opening in London of The Light Princess, a stage musical co-written by Amos and developed with the National Theatre. Amos first had the idea for the project in 2008, inspired by the 1864 story by Scottish author George MacDonald. Working with a large creative team and cast, she was energized by the experience a creative renaissance that is apparent on Unrepentant Geraldines. Given that her current tour will see her give 80 performances in cities around the world, Amos clearly has no intention of slowing down at the moment. Those who catch the show at Ruth Eckerd Hall Aug. 22 can expect to see Amos in classic form: just her, her piano, her songs and her voice. Pinellas Country Fair seeks volunteersPINELLAS PARK The Greater Pinellas Country Fair will run Wednesday through Sunday, Nov. 12-16, at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the gate. Call 800-9880 or visit www.pinellasfair.org. Organizers of the inaugural, five-day, all-county event are seeking volunteers. Fair enthusiast Marjorie Hynish decided it had been too long more than 20 years since Pinellas County had an old-time country fair. She and Bobby Barnes of The Impacs band gathered up a group of volunteers, formed a board, contacted schools, local governments, county commissioners, the Department of Agriculture, and the Florida Federation of Fairs, and forged the framework for the 2014 Greater Pinellas Country Fair. On June 20, the board received official notice that its dates of operation were approved, and now the fair is seeking volunteers to make it all happen. This inaugural event will boast a midway with rides and games and a variety of foods. There also will be agricultural, horticultural, craft and talent competitions as well as contests of skill and chance. The fair is timed to be part of the centennial celebrations for the city of Pinellas Park, the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce and Pinellas County Extension Services.
