By TOM GERMONDLARGO City officials want to make sure that the golf course gets tender loving care if they decide to let private enterprise run it. In the next several months, city officials will seek proposals from an experienced golf course management company to operate the golf course, located on Vonn Road. They expect to have a short list of companies prepared by April 1, 2012. But they made it clear that the process will involve a lot of legwork. In particular because you would be potentially handing over the operation of a very valuable city asset to a private entity, Schubert said at a budget work session Aug. 5. He said the process would require a lot of background checks of the potential management companies to make sure what they say they will do they actually will do that they have a good track record. City officials plan to visit golf courses operated by the companies that submit proposals. Also in April, city officials will report on the financial results of the golf course operations through that date, which will encompass the traditional busy season of the course that ends around Easter. The City Commission then would decide whether the city should continue to run it during fiscal year 2013 or contact with a private company to operate the course. City officials also will consider leasing the course as an alternative to coming up with a management contract The goal of the plan is to make the golf course self-sustaining. In recent months city commissioners have raised concerns over annual subsidies to the golf course from the citys general fund. The course was expected to receive a subsidy of $150,000 in the next fiscal year; it has been operating at a deficit for the past few years. A staff person from the citys Communications and Marketing Division has been assigned part time to promote the golf course. We have put a significant emphasis on marketing the course to see if we can make the course more financially viable, Shubert said. Mayor Pat Gerard said it is important for the city to look at courses that are being managed by private enterprise to see what kind of shape they are in. Shubert said it is extremely important that a decision be based not just on the financial items that are in the contract, but also someones track record as to the quality of care they give to the courses that they manage.Gerard said that the city recently See GOLF COURSE, page 4ABluffs fire station gets high priority By TOM GERMONDLARGO City officials will discuss with Belleair Bluffs officials the possibility of relocating the Bluffs fire station off Indian Rocks Road to another location in that municipality. Belleair Bluffs officials have approached the city staff about the possibility of a joint partnership by which Largo could relocate Station 43 to Bluffs property located on Bayway Avenue. The property was originally purchased by the Bluffs to reconstruct Fire Station 43. City officials rank Station 43 their top priority for reconstruction and rehabilitation among three stations because of its age and condition. That station has substantial National Fire Protection Act standard deficiencies since it is a converted gas station, a city memo said. It lacks accessibility within the station around the vehicles. It has improper ventilation, etc., Assistant City Manager Michael Staffopoulos said, at the commission work session Aug. 9. The city of Belleair Bluffs hopes to return the property to the commercial tax rolls. I have no objection to what you propose doing, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said. Go talk to Belleair Bluffs. I think thats a wonderful idea. Commissioner Mary Black asked about the legalities of the city spending public funds to build a fire station in another governmental entity. City officials will seek an opinion from the city attorney on such issues. They believe that on more than one occasion Belleair Bluffs officials said they would be willing to work with Largo staff on some type of arrangement. We have not discussed any details as to whether they would own the land, whether we would purchase the land, whether it would be joint participation on construction or one or another paying for the construction, Staffopoulos said. We have not gotten into any details other than wanting to bringing the option of entering the discussions with Belleair Bluffs to the City Commission. See CITY, page 4A Volunteers tireless in helping run park By BRIAN GOFFLARGO For the past 23 years the George C. McGough Park has been operating in Largo. And thanks to an army of volunteers known as Friends of the Parks, the facility continues to operate at full capacity despite recent budget cuts that threatened to close the Nature Center, the nerve center of the park. Eight years ago Pat Edmond became interested in the park and after attending several naturalist programs signed on as a volunteer. Since then she has become the president of the Friends group and continues to spend hours each week teaching young people about the importance of nature and why they should care. Education Outreach is the most important thing we do here, she said. Budget cuts have made it impossible for the schools to send the children here, so we go to the schools. That is just one of the many tasks the volunteers are involved in regularly. Edmond said the most important thing the volunteers did was two years ago when the city of Largo had to trim the city budget and the Nature Center at the Park was on the chopping block. Week after week we would go to the meetings and object to the closing, she said. Then somebody advised us to do more than just complain; we had to come up with a solution. So we did, and we managed to save the center. Now volunteers are on deck every morning to open the center and get things going until a staff member comes on duty sometime later in the morning. The volunteers conduct tours, operate day camps and camp-outs and last year even organized a 5K race to raise money. Money raised through those activities is paying for necessities, which the city cannot afford. Just this past week a complete new video alarm system was installed at the Park. Vandals had been breaking into the center in recent weeks; the alarm system is expected to stop that. Just a year ago vandals released the great horned owl, J.R., who was kept in a cage behind the center. A family who found him abandoned as a chick raised J.R. as a pet. It was thought that he would never survive in the wild because he has never learned hunting skills. He couldnt even live in the bird sanctuary because he had bonded with humans, not other owls. But it seems J.R. fooledPhoto by BRIAN GOFFVolunteer Pat Edmond conducts an environmental class for young participants at a day camp at the McGough Nature Park.Commissioners praise Largo manager Most say he is doing a good to excellent job. ...

It has been a year and he is seen occasionally flying around McGough Park, thriving in the wild. Inside the Nature Center are other live creatures which visitors can read about, and children who attend day camp during the summer get to learn all about the importance of being green. The children are our most important asset, said Edmond. They have to know how crucial the preservation of nature is, because someday they may be the ones going to the podium at council meetings fighting to maintain this place. Lest you think Edmond is upset with the city of Largo for threatening to close the Nature Center, far from it. I dont know of any other community that offers as much as Largo in terms of outdoor programs and allowing residents to do things in nature. Our green space is important and it does have an environmental impact in that it keeps property values stable, she said. Largo operates three nature parks. In addition to McGough, located at the West End of Walsingham Road, there is also nearby Bonner Park and the Largo Nature Preserve, off East Bay Drive, See VOLUNTEERS, page 4A PET CONNECTIONSpeaking of PetsKim Donovan D.V.M. of Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital says there is no such thing as giving your veterinarian too much information.

Craig received a cumulative score of 4.315 on a five-point scale on his 2011 evaluation conducted by the six city commissioners and the mayor. Evaluated in eight categories, Craig received mostly excellent marks, 25; good, 21, and satisfactory, 8. No commissioner said he needs improvement or is unsatisfactory in any category. Commissioner Gigi Arntzen gave Craig, 74, scores of excellent in all categories, saying that while challenges have remained during the year, your leadership and positive attitude have ensured that Largo continues to be a respected community respected by our residents and surrounding communities. Mayor Pat Gerard also gave Craig an overall ranking of excellent. She said his strengths are integrity and professionalism. Commenting on his coordination and liaison, Gerard said that Craigs actions as a city manager have really improved our relationships with governmental units. Commissioner Mary Black gave Craig an overall rating of satisfactory. She said Craig is a very personable and dedicated gentleman, with high regard for Largo, his hometown. However, she said that Craig should demonstrate his knowledge, skills and abilities by taking a more active leadership role during commission meetings and meetings with the general public. Commissioner Harriet Crozier gave Craig an overall rating of good plus, praising him for his integrity and leadership. She added that Craig needs to be more involved in the business community by getting out more. She also said she feels he should be firmer in getting his points across to staff. Commissioner Curtis Holmes did not complete the form, saying that it was used by the previous administration and does not reflect upon the true abilities or lack thereof, of a city manager. Holmes provided some answers in text form but did not assign scores to his performance. He criticized some of the categories in the evaluation, such as leadership/direction. The perceived leadership dearth is the commissions fault, Holmes wrote. On the category of integrity and fairness, Holmes called it an odd question. Straightforward; while sitting on the dais, yes, but well-reasoned and fair is in the eye of the beholder, as well the ability to discern legitimate points of view and balanced solutions, he wrote. Commissioner Robert Murray gave Craig an overall rating of good. Commenting on Craigs strengths, Murray said that the manager has everything written down for Murrays weekly meetings with him. He is very detail oriented when it comes to city business. Mr. Craig ensures that I have the latest information concerning city business, Murray wrote. Commissioner Woody Brown also gave Craig an overall rating of good. He did not provide any written comments. Craig also received high marks on last years evaluation, an overall score of 4.295 on a scale of 5. Craig began work for the city in January 2000 as director of environmental services and became assistant city manager four years later. He was named acting city manager in February 2007 following the termination of former City Manager Susan Stanton and named city manager that August. Craigs evaluation will be placed on the Aug. 16 regular commission meeting agenda. His base salary is $145,600. As he has in some recent years, he will give up his raise for the upcoming fiscal year, city officials said. BY AMANDA SEBASTIANOLARGO Making preparations for long-term care for an elderly parent can be a stressful decision-making process. Retirement living, long-term care and funeral home specialists, and an attorney met at Pinecrest Place Retirement Community July 28 to aid adult children in helping their elderly parents. The meeting was focused on how to prepare for the end stages of life, Moss Funeral Home associate Kevin Rodriguez said. Each presentation featured a specific aspect of planning: housing, financial, legal and arrangements for the deceased. Sherrie Ngo, president and CEO of Recruitment Specialist of Florida, has focused on senior housing for the past six years. Ngo broke down the different types of communities including assisted living; independent; memory care and rehab. She spoke about misconceptions about rehabilitation facilities and the signs to look for when deciding if your parent needs care. Typically, when someone is unable to perform activities of daily living is when professional help may be needed. About 65 percent of seniors do not eat nutritionally balanced meals, Ngo said. Before I started in this community, when I thought about rehab, I thought you went to rehab all day to get better; thats not the case. Really, you get an hour or two of rehab and the rest of the time youre in more of an institutional, hospital-type setting, Ngo said. Knowing your parents financial status and talking to them about getting involved with a community while they can still enjoy it were other issues mentioned as well. A calendar of events was handed out that showed the seniors daily activities at Pinecrest Place and how busy they really are. Has anyone here ever been on a cruise? Ngo asked. When you wake up in the morning your biggest concern is what color flip flops to wear, because you know the ships captain, or the programming manager, has it under control. A lot of residents say living in a retirement community is a lot like being on a cruise, without the sea sickness. Ngo also answered questions that she is asked frequently, such as can my parents afford it? and when should I talk to my parent(s)? She handed out budget sheets that compared the cost of trying to take care of parents at home as opposed to the cost of living in retirement communities. The cost of living at home is quite surprising, she said. Nate Cocco, a MassMutual Financial Group representative, followed up the financial discussion with long-term care options and how to create a long-term care strategy. There are a few ways to pay for long-term or extended care: apply for long-term care insurance, use your assets and out of pocket money or apply for Medicaid. Most regular health insurance policies, those that dont specialize in long-term care, do not cover it, Cocco said. And by most, he meant hardly any at all, he said. If you decide to take on the responsibility, you will end up getting stressed out, emotionally and physically, and wont be enjoying the last years of your parents life, Cocco said. Pre-planning is crucial when it comes to receiving care over an extended period of time. Otherwise parents will be spending all of their assets on getting care. How can someone plan for something that might happen with his or her health? Maintain financial security, start saving up and maybe make payments on a long-term insurance plan. Its a way to insure a huge risk, Cocco said. Long-term care is estimated to cost about $83,000 a year, a lot to pay at one time. Maximizing independence and feeling in charge of financial stability while going through the care was a key issue discussed as well. Louis Drew LaGrande, an attorney from Akerman Senterfitt, got technical with legal documents that become more important as a parent gets older, such as power of attorney and a living will. A durable power of attorney is used when one person, the principal, appoints someone to handle certain issues for them, their agent. The agent makes decisions for the principal from health options to financial matters. The power of attorney position is a very powerful document, he said. In October, the ways in which power of attorneys are handled will change. New requirements will be put in place to help better protect the principal, the person giving the power, from an agent, the person with the power, from taking advantage of them and their assets. Having a living will, a document involving stating whether or not to hook a person up to life support to preserve his or her life, is equally important. LaGrande cited the Terri Schiavo case as a prime example for the importance of having such a document. She didnt have a living will, so there was no way of saying what she really wanted. They had to go to court and decide what was right; a living will would have alleviated that, LaGrande said. Rodriguez, who started in the funeral industry in 1990, recommended putting a plan in place for how to financially handle the arrangements for the death of a parent. Making a plan for burial and funeral arrangements will lessen the amount of stress being dealt with later on. Anyone that knows about preparing a funeral knows that the toughest part is having to go down there on the day of death and make all those decisions. Its one of the hardest days of our lives and now we have to go down to the funeral home or cemetery and do all of that, Rodriguez said. Setting up a budget and reviewing options for memorial and cemetery services with a funeral home employee will save time and money during the grieving process.Specialists discuss care options for elderly parentsAnyone that knows about preparing a funeral knows that the toughest part is having to go down there on the day of death and make all those decisions.Kevin Rodriguez Moss Funeral Home Mac CraigCommissioners give high marks to city manager

Around Around Largo LargoCity events City events Photo by ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLSophie Thompson, 11 months old, from Gainesville, plays in the white sand at Clearwater Beach. Her parents and grandma from Georgia took a day trip to Clearwater Beach to enjoy the sun and water.Fun in the sunConsultants unveil economic plan for ClearwaterCLEARWATER Last October, the city hired TIP Strategies, Inc., an Austin-based consulting firm, to devise a plan for Clearwaters financial future. The purpose of the plan is to provide a blueprint for positioning Clearwater for sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the future, according to a staff memo to the City Council. At the councils Aug. 1 work session, TIP executives Jon Roberts and Alex Cooke spent 2.5 hours laying out their findings and recommendations. This is not a community that is struggling to survive, Roberts said, adding that Clearwater compares favorably with nearby cities. This is a well-managed city with tremendous prospects. But there is room for improvement. He said that the projects goals are to broaden the citys tax base, which is too dependent upon residential taxes; expand its employment base; enhance the quality of place image that it projects to outsiders; and widen and deepen the talent base of its workers. One of the biggest challenges facing Clearwater, according to Roberts, is that two-thirds of its tax base comes from housing, which provides less income and requires more services than commercial uses. He said that residences assessed at less than $100 per square foot usually cost more in services than they pay in taxes. You are probably right at the cusp of being able to provide services to the residences you have without losing money, Roberts said, so promotional efforts should be aimed attracting new businesses, rather than more residents. But Clearwater is perceived as a hard place to do business, so he suggested cutting through the red tape whenever possible. Another challenge facing the city, Roberts said, is that its population is aging, and 32 percent of residents earn less than $25,000 per year. Only 27 percent of Clearwater jobs pay more than $40,000 per year, compared to 33 percent in St. Petersburg. To improve its economic vitality, Roberts added, the city should diversify its tax base and attract industries that pay more than the lowwage jobs typical in the citys huge hospitality industry. But he warned that in its zeal to attract new businesses, the city should not neglect its existing businesses and should assign staff to visit both old and new businesses to see what help they need from the city. Its not lost on us that this is a tourist destination, Roberts said. Linking tourism to economic development is a tremendous possibility. Noting that overlay districts are a great marketing tool, Roberts suggested creating overlay districts where companies in the same industry, such as technology, would be clustered together. He said that Clearwater is especially suited to data management, high-tech electronics, insurance, finance, marine ecology and boating-related occupations. He suggested using Morton Plant Hospital as the hub of a medical overlay district. Roberts said that the city needs to use whatever tools it has to provide incentives, such as matching grants for merchants who remodel their stores, if it is to achieve its economic goals. When Mayor Frank Hibbard said that the tools in our toolbox are pretty limited right now, Roberts replied that the city should be creative and not try to follow the letter of his plan. This plan really needs to be seen as a living document, he said. Roberts said that Clearwater is way ahead of the pack in parks, bike lanes and other amenities that are likely to attract young entrepreneurs and executives, and needs to advertise those amenities more aggressively. When Hibbard asked what effect, if any, the Church of Scientology might have on attracting new businesses to Clearwater, Roberts replied that he had heard anecdotally that misinformation posted on Wikipedia and other online sites had scared off a few business owners. You need to exercise more control over how people perceive your city on that subject of Scientology, Roberts told Hibbard. Saying that tourism is cyclical and we cant depend on tourism, Vice Mayor George Cretekos agreed that Clearwater needs to broaden its economic base, and he said that the TIP plan is an excellent blueprint for doing it. This (plan) was an enormous help, Councilman Paul Gibson concurred. I agree with the vice mayor that were going to work hard to see that it doesnt end up on someones shelf. Lester R. DaileySafety concerns necessitate changesBELLEAIR In the interest of safety, town officials are considering some traffic changes near Belleair Town Hall and the Dimmitt Community Center. Residents used to getting to the town hall parking lot off Osceola Road are going to have to learn a different way. Within the next month the town is going to close the parking lot access from Osceola Road, so the only way in will be from Ponce de Leon. Town Manager Micah Maxwell said the change is being made for safety reasons, and too many vehicles are using the parking lot as a cut through. Once the summer programs are over, the change will be made and that should happen in the next three or four weeks. Also on the potential closure list is the section of Varona Street between Ponce de Leon and Osceola. Right now the street, with several parking spaces, separates two sports fields. If the decision is made to close the street, the fields can be enlarged and athletes can move from one to the other without fear of traffic. Consideration of closing Varona is in the preliminary stages and nothing will happen before public meetings are held on the matter. In other matters, several Belleair property owners are learning it can be expensive if you dont keep your lawn trimmed and your property in presentable condition. At the Aug. 2 meeting, the Town Commission gave the go-ahead to the towns Public Works Department to visit four properties and clean them up. The owners will then be responsible for the cost of the cleanup, which is $410. The properties in question are 540 Palmetto Road, 1745 Golfview Drive, 1627 Golfview Drive and 646 Mehlenbacher Road. Property owners who dont keep up their properties are given 30 days notice before the town will take action. Town Manager Micah Maxwell indicated that often property owners will wait until the last minute before cleaning up their lots. It wouldnt surprise me if some were out there cutting their lawns as we speak, he said. If the properties are cleaned up when the work crews get there, the owners will not be charged. Brian Goff CITY, from page 1ALargo commissioners had considered consolidating both stations on property owned by Hospital Corporation of America on Indian Rocks Road, but the property was deemed unsuitable because a portion of it lies in a flood zone, among other issues. City officials advise that because of required response times for fire and EMS to the Ridgecrest area, Belleair Bluffs and Belleair, a consolidated station must be located within a specific area. The approximate boundaries of the area for such a station are the Indian Rocks corridor, from Eighth Avenue Southwest to the north to Wilcox Road to the south. When you put all those factors together and you look at it in relationship to that corridor, and the specific box we have to work within, finding a site for a combined station would be extremely difficult going forward, Staffopoulos said. Other areas that have been ruled out include property at the Southwest Complex off Wilcox Road and school district property nearby. A station at the Southwest Recreation Center would not be capable of reaching the northern boundary of Belleair Fire District for a combined station location, Staffopoulos said. City officials also will look at parcels near the intersection of Indian Rocks Road and West Bay Drive within the Largo city limits for a site for a station. The city of Belleair Bluffs contracts with Largo for fire service. Around Pinellas Around Pinellas VOLUNTEERS, from page 1Awhich has been closed for repair work. The parks themselves might exist without the volunteers but the programs wouldnt. Joel Quattlebaum, the park naturalist and program specialist, said the volunteers are critical to the entire operation. They are always stepping up. Just recently we were down a staff member and they stepped in and filled the void, and they did that for six or seven months, he said. They are a key support group for us; they are part of the team. We have a good working relationship and they are treated just like anybody who works here. If they need something we try to get it for them. If you have an interest in nature and would like to volunteer you can call the Friends of the Parks at 518-3047.


County 5A Leader, August 11, 2011 LARGO Award-winning Tutterow Dancers Inc., the premier dance studio in the county, is preparing for its 2011-12 dance season. Classes will be presented in the new Largo Community Center, 400 Alternate Keene Road, Largo. The 30,000-square-feet, LEED-certified facility opened in January 2011. According to Debbie Kennedy, studio director of Tutterow Dancers, the beautiful center boasts three state-of-the-art studio spaces with floating floors, barres and mirrors. A passion for teaching the art of dance Tutterow has been contracted through Largos Recreation, Parks and Arts Department since 1976. The studio is such an important part of my life, Debbie said. It is a pleasure to teach the students and watch their love of dance and talents grow. The faculty at Tutterow believes a teachers influence on a students future extends far beyond what goes on in the classroom. Our teaching philosophy is centered on instilling a passion for dance while building self-esteem and confidence in every child, Debbie explained. Several studies have shown that participation in the arts helps children improve test scores. In addition to the academic benefits, dance offers plenty of less quantifiable rewards, too: It evokes our humanity, inspires joy and expands our emotional understanding. The Tutterow faculty fully appreciates the long-term impact of this creative endeavor, fueling their passion for teaching students. "Our teachers are chosen not only for their dance experience but for their ability to relate to the typical needs of our students, Debbie said. Our professional staff continues with ongoing training to ensure we are always providing students and parents with the best experience possible. Keeping the staff knowledgeable in their fields is one of the strengths of the Tutterow Dance faculty. Its important that our instructors are able to teach proper technique, said Debbie. However, proper technique alone is simply not enough. Good teaching includes knowledge, patience, passion and devotion at its very core." Mary Frangione, ballet director for the Tutterow Dancers, is the embodiment of that ideal. Mary joined the faculty after her family moved to Florida from New Jersey where she was the owner of the Dance Exchange Studio. Mary was a member of the Duquesne University Tamburitzans, a folk music and dance ensemble. She performed professionally as a Radio City Music Hall Rockette in New York City. Ballet as the foundation for dance Ballet is the foundation of every dancer, said Debbie. All of our students in our performance company are required to take ballet with Ms. Mary. The training in ballet, the lines of great posture and the discipline create a foundation so that the body can move freely in all directions. It encourages the proper way of movement for the dancer. Mary said other forms of dance use this training as a basis. The fundamental skills developed at the ballet bar make other forms of dance more approachable. At Tutterow, classes focus on proper technique, correct body placement, strengthening and terminology. Students start at the bar even the youngest ones. Even when were preparing for the recital, were still working on basics, Mary explained. Were constantly working on technique, she added. Were not simply a recital studio. Ultimately, its the faculty that sets Tutterow Dancers Inc. apart from other studios. It starts with the faculty, Mary said. They have such a great rapport with all the students. Theyre all so good at bringing out the best in children. Award-winning performance company The Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow Performance Company originated in 1982 to offer additional performance opportunities for talented young dancers. Consisting of dancers ages 6 to 18, the performance company attends workshops, master classes and competitions throughout the United States. Participation in Stars of Tomorrow is for the student with the passion, desire and dedication to fully excel in the art of dance. Becoming a member of the Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow Performance Company is by audition only. Please contact the studio for more information 727-585-1232. Over the years, the company has consistently won national awards in competition. Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow have performed at Walt Disney World, the Florida State Fair, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Disneys California Adventure and on Royal Caribbeans cruise ships. Outside the United States, the performance company traveled to Prague and Germany in 2008 to perform for U.S. troops stationed in Stuttguart and Bamberg. They have been invited to return to Europe next summer. We are so excited about our upcoming trip to perform at Euro Disney in Paris, and feel honored to perform for the troops in Germany next summer, Debbie said. The Stars of Tomorrow will perform in Germany at the German American Festival and will take a class with a member of the Paris Ballet Company. They will visit Austria for the Sound of Music Tour and perform for some of the U.S. troops stationed in Germany. Our military gives up so much for our entire country, said Brittney Kennedy, Tutterow faculty member. Its just nice to even bring them a little piece of home.

Six people were transported to local hospitals, all with non-life-threatening injuries. According to deputies, Lily Williams, 56, of St. Petersburg was driving a Ford Econoline Van with five passengers aboard. She was headed westbound on Bay Pines Boulevard at 94th Street North and pulling a 23-foot boat on a trailer. David White, 23, of Redington Beach was traveling eastbound on Bay Pines Blvd in his Ford F150 with one passenger in the car. Deputies said Williams made a left turn to go into the War Veterans Memorial Park in front of Whites vehicle. The F150 struck the Econoline van causing it to overturn and the boat trailer to be separated. No one was trapped in either vehicle. Williams along with three passengers in the van was all transported by ambulance to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries. White and his passenger were transported by ambulance to Morton Plant Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. It does not appear that speed or alcohol were factors in the crash. Bay Pines Boulevard was reduced to one lane eastbound for one hour during the investigation, which is continuing.Neighborly dispute ends in gunfireCLEARWATER Clearwater neighbors shot at each other in a dispute on Aug. 3, resulting in injuries and arrests for both of them, according to a Pinellas County Sheriffs report. The neighbors live across the street from each other, and around 11 p.m., they became involved in a verbal dispute, the report said. The argument led to a fistfight, which escalated into shots fired at each other. Both received non-life-threatening wounds. Richard Kelly, 24, was shot in the left hand and left foot. Donald Madak, 43, was shot in the thigh. Patrol deputies are investigating and are hearing varying stories of what transpired. Kelly was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and is being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. Madak was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bond.Largo police recover stolen propertyLARGO A Largo man was arrested Aug. 4 in connection with a burglary of an 80-year-old woman. According to Largo Police Chief John Carroll, the woman reported on Aug. 3 the theft of about $3,400 in coins and jewelry, including a trolley car gold charm. The victim suspected the grandson of a friend, but did not want to accuse him without proof. A Largo police officer visited several local pawnshops, thinking the charm might be distinctive enough to locate, and asked them to do a search. Belleair Coins was able to confirm the charm had been pawned and provided the pawn slip. Largo police talked to the person who pawned the items and he allegedly confessed. Carroll said in his report, the person who pawned the items was the person the victim had suspected. Jay Fink, 23, was arrested for grand theft of a person over 65, false verification of ownership, burglary and dealing in stolen property. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $35,000. Carroll reported that the charm was recovered and it looks like the remainder of the victims belonging also may have been located.FHP seeks driver in July 29 crashLARGO The Florida Highway Patrol and Pinellas County Sheriffs Office investigators are looking for information about a July 29 crash at Ridge Road and 117th Avenue North in Largo. Richard Lee Slate, 28, of Largo was injured in the crash. He is still in Bayfront Medical Center in critical condition. The FHP released an updated report about the circumstances of the 11 a.m. incident and say there is reason to believe the crash may have been intentional as witness reports indicate that the unknown driver was operating the vehicle in a reckless manner prior to the crash. Law enforcement is looking for a 1997-2002 model Honda sedan with colors ranging from silver, gray or charcoal. FHP says according to witness accounts, the Honda may have steered toward Slate, who was standing on the southeast corner of 117th Avenue North at the intersection of Ridge Road. The vehicle, which hit him, had been traveling westbound on 117th Avenue North approaching Ridge Road when it turned sharply to the left onto Ridge Road, drove off the roadway and collided with Slate. Slate was run over by the vehicle, then trapped in the undercarriage of the vehicle and dragged 300 feet before the vehicle turned onto 116th Avenue North. Slate was left on 116th Avenue and the vehicle reversed direction and was last seen traveling on Ridge Road. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call FHP Cpl. Larry Maynard at 813-631-4020.Palm Harbor man dies in Skyway crashA Palm Harbor man died and his 12-year-old son was injured in a crash on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge about 5:30 p.m. Aug. 6. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Shane Keith Chancy, 37, was traveling northbound in the outside lane of State Road 93 across the Skyway Bridge, near the 13.5 milepost and rest area, when the left tire separated and the tread came off the tire. Chancy lost control of his 1997 Mercury mini-van and it veered to the outside shoulder. According to the report, Chancy over-corrected to the left, and the van traveled back across both northbound lanes and collided with the median guardrail. The van then traveled back across the travel lanes and into the center of the roadway where it overturned once before coming to a rest on its right side. Chancy, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. His son, Seth Tyler Chancy, was taken to All Childrens Hospital with serious injuries. The outside northbound land of SR-93 was closed for two hours because of the crash and investigation.Largo man found floating off beachNORTH REDINGTON BEACH Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies have identified the man found the morning of Aug. 3 floating face down offshore North Redington Beach. Wayne Kozlowski, 70, of Largo was in critical condition Aug. 4 at Largo Medical Center. Deputies said his family in Wisconsin had been notified. When beachgoers found Kozlowski, he was wearing only a pair of blue shorts. He had no identification. Another beachgoer called the sheriffs office Aug. 4 after finding a small pile of clothing slightly hidden near the beach at 16900 Gulf Blvd. Car keys were found in the clothing. Deputies said about the same time the clothing was found, Largo Police received a request for a welfare check at the Eldorado Mobile Home Park. The manager reported he had not seen Kozlowski and was concerned. The manager also said the mans red Blazer was missing. When deputies retrieved the clothing from the beach and a set of car keys, they observed a red Blazer parked near a strip shopping center on Gulf Boulevard. Largo police contacted deputies about the welfare check and the car. Deputies reported finding the red Blazer and were able to make a connection. Next, Largo PD met the mobile home park manager at the hospital where the manager was able to positively identify Kozlowski.Police seek help to ID burglarCLEARWATER Clearwater police are seeking the publics help to identify a suspect in connection with the Aug. 2 burglary of the Dairy Queen, 2046 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. in Clearwater.

It was a bleak sight for a Friday night. Footsteps sounded like drums against the worn linoleum floors, echoing off the walls of once-businesses. At the entrance of the mall, white walls on the left and right sides guide shoppers several feet until the main stretch of the mall is visible around the corner. Bealls, CVS drug store, Ross and Stein Mart are just about the only stores left in the mall that is considered to be a major landmark for downtown Seminole. The mall went into foreclosure last month and has left locals asking, whats next? Its 425,292 square feet of space isnt filled to even half of its capacity, with stores or customers. It has gradually been getting more and more quiet over the years, 35-year shopper Marilyn Mackey said. I really dont want it to close, but it has definitely been getting slower and more quiet around here, Mackey said. I guess people are going to other local malls with the bigger department stores, like Tyrone Square or the Clearwater Mall. The addition of more, larger stores, and a few entertainment or bookstores may help breathe life into the shopping center, Mackey said. The biggest sign of life at night came from Tellys restaurant, the last place in business for customers to grab a bite to eat in the mall. The business has been in the mall for 30 years, and the owners are staying positive, hoping that someone will revive the dead mall. If there were more stores that appealed to a younger crowd, or to the families in the area, business may pick up, daughter and employee of the family-owned business Georgia Boulieres said. She thinks the reason the clientele is made up of mostly seniors shopping at the mall lately is because the younger to middle age demographics arent represented and dont see any stores that appeal to them. Seminole Mall was built in 1964 and hasnt been renovated since 1992. The dated building could use a face-lift, shoppers and workers agreed. The hushed atmosphere is relaxing to some customers, like patron Patrick Benturella who still loves shopping at the mall. This mall has really been here forever, and it is quiet but I kind of like it, Benturella said. What I think, and hope, happens is someone will buy it up at a bargain, add new stores and keep it running. I hope it stays open one way or another. Benturella has been a Seminole resident for most of his life and has been shopping the stores at the mall for years, but cant deny a change in the amount of people frequenting the mall. Across the mall is another hot spot where most of the life inside is found, the Bealls department store. The close proximity of the mall to local retirement homes, practically walking distance, is something the seniors need to have to look forward to, employee Louise Horbat said. Seniors are already upset they have to walk, or See MALL, page 7ASome patrons still see hope for troubled Seminole Mall By SUZETTE PORTERST. PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority joins a growing list of government agencies approving tentative millage increases for fiscal year 2011-2012. The PSTA Board tentatively approved a proposed rate of 0.7305 mills at its July 27 meeting. The current rate is 0.5601 mills. The rate will be used to calculate taxes for Truth in Millage statements to be mailed to property owners by the Property Appraisers Office on Aug. 22. The tentative millage is the highest rate PSTA can impose; however, the board could decide to reduce the millage rate before final approval on Sept. 14. PSTA needs to balance its budget despite continuing reductions in revenue. Since 2007, the countys public transit provider has lost more than 30 percent in property tax revenue, which is its primary funding source, according to information from Bob Lasher, manager of PSTA Community Relations. There also is a possible 30 percent cut coming in federal transportation funding. Increasing the millage rate would help the PSTA board balance the budget for the next three years and fully fund its reserves. It also would allow the board to minimize service cuts to 1 percent and still improve service along Central Avenue in St. Petersburg and begin Flex Routes in northern areas of the county next year. PSTA has cut its staff from 617 in 2008 to 537 to date. Its been three years since non-union employees and some union employees have had a pay raise. Still, PSTA carried more passengers in 2010 than ever before a record ridership of 13.1 million overall, Lasher said in an email. Historically low funding for transit despite fare increases in 2008 and 2010 continue to create challenges for PSTA. Lasher said of 57 similar sized metropolitan areas, 500,000 to 1.5 million in population, PSTA is 39th in annual per capita spending on transit or a little more than half the average spending of the other systems. PSTA continues to look for ways to cut its costs by streamlining services, reducing fleet numbers and locking in fuel prices on an annual basis to minimize cost variability. An investment in 24 dieselelectric hybrid buses is helping reduce costs. The buses get 56 percent higher fuel efficiency. Lasher said every $1 increase in a gallon of fuel costs PSTA an additional $2.1 million. PSTA buys about 2.1 million gallons of fuel each year. The Tampa Bay region is known for its transit systems and not in a good way. The Brookings Institution ranked it 77th out of the nations top metropolitan areas. Forbes Magazine ranked the Tampa region last in a listing of 60 cities with the worst commutes in the United States. Further PSTA service cuts could severely affect the local economy, Lasher said, since PSTAs largest ridership is commuters those going back and forth to work. Two public hearings are scheduled on the millage rate and final PSTA budget. The dates are Wednesday, Sept. 7 and 14 at PSTA headquarters, 3201 Scherer Drive, St. Petersburg. The times have not been set. Despite bad press for the regions transit system, Lasher was able to point out one recent accomplishment for Pinellas County. PSTA carried more passengers last year than the Transit System of the Year, as awarded by the American Public Transportation Association. Whats more, PSTA hit that mark with a significantly smaller budget and staff than the Transit System of the Year. For more information, visit

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration held a press briefing Aug. 4 where officials announced that the forecast actually increased the number of expected named storms as compared to predictions made in May. The atmosphere and Atlantic Ocean are primed for high hurricane activity during August through October, Dr. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center, said in a press release. Storms through October will form more frequently and become more intense than weve seen so far this season. Five named storms have formed since the beginning of hurricane season June 1, but none strengthened into hurricanes, which forecasters say is typical. Bell said during the press briefing that historical data shows the busiest part of the season is August through the end of October. By far, the bulk of the action is in August, September and October, which is the reason we update the forecast, he said. There is no reason to be complacent. Were just now getting into the peak part of the season. Hurricane season ends officially on Nov. 30. Bell said the update includes an increased confidence in the forecast with experts calling for an 85 percent chance that their numbers would prove true. In May, NOAAs experts had only a 65 percent level of confidence in the forecast. In May, NOAA predicted that 12 to 18 named storms would form. Now, the forecast calls for 14 to 19, including the five that have already formed. Mays forecast called for six to 10 hurricanes. Bell said the new predictions are for seven to 10 with three to five strengthening into major hurricanes, Category 3, 4 or 5. The long-term seasonal average is 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. Bell said the same climate factors, which have been in place for the past several seasons, are occurring again this year. The tropical multi-decadal signal, in place since 1995, continues to allow favorable ocean and atmospheric conditions conducive for storms and hurricanes. There is reduced wind shear and lower air pressure across the tropical Atlantic. In addition, temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean are the third highest on record, and there is a possibility that La Nia could redevelop, he said. La Nia is characterized by unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific, compared to El Nio, which is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific. During La Nia, the normal climate patterns are enhanced, according to NOAAs website. Dr. William Gray, professor emeritus at the Colorado State University, pioneered research efforts leading to the discovery of La Nia effects on Atlantic hurricane activity. According to his research, the chances for the continental U.S. and the Caribbean Islands to experience hurricane activity increases substantially during La Nia. Gray and Dr. Phil Klotzbach, CSU research scientist, updated their season forecast on Aug. 3, which remains unchanged. They say residents living in coastal areas should prepare for 16 named storms, nine hurricanes and as many as five major hurricanes. Steve Woodard, FEMA deputy director for response, talked about the need to prepare and be ready for any disaster, including a hurricane. Weve been lucky recently, he said. But thats no reason to be complacent. The last hurricane to make landfall in the United States was Ike in 2008. Disaster can happen at any time; however, hurricanes most likely happen during a particular season, making them easier for which to prepare. It is still early in this hurricane season, and we know it can take only one storm to devastate communities and families, said FEMA deputy administrator Rich Serino. Many disasters come without warning, but thats not the case with hurricanes. This is hurricane season, if you havent already, now is the time to take a few simple steps to get you and your family prepared. Officials talked about the extreme weather that has been creating problems across the nation tornados, flooding, wildfires, the heat wave gripping the mid-west, increasing drought conditions in places such as Texas. Extreme weather is on the rise, said Dr. Jack Hays, director of the National Weather Service.

Now were going to take away one of their closest and favorite stores? Horbat has worked in the mall for 12 years, and helped open up the Bealls. Though the rest of the mall may be hurting, she has seen a steady flow of business and hasnt really noticed a decrease. Patrons Linda and Edward Stamborski were avid about needing Bealls to stay open, especially after the Madeira Beach branch closed recently. Though the mall seems like a ghost town from the outside, the remaining stores still claim to have a strong base of loyal customers that rely on the stores. Many are up for the idea of renovation of the mall and perhaps temporarily closing it in order to do so, but feel that there would be a loss if it were to close down permanently. Seniors living within close proximity to the shopping plaza and other loyal customers that still enjoy shopping at Seminole Mall urge for a new buyer with fresh ideas to liven up the empty spaces, including the food court that now consists of one restaurant. While the future of the large space is unknown, business owners, workers and shoppers are hopeful that things will turn around for the mall and bring it back to the 1990s, better, busier days.Re-inspections coming for reclaimed water systemsPinellas County Utilities inspectors will soon be conducting re-inspections of all connections to the reclaimed water distribution system. These inspections are required by the Florida Administrative Code and are designed to protect public health and safety of the drinking water supply. The inspections ensure that there are no cross connections between the drinking water system and any other source of water, including reclaimed water. As part of this state-mandated requirement, reclaimed water sprinkler system inspections will be occurring in the coming months and will continue on a periodic basis. These inspections require Pinellas County inspectors to access the reclaimed water service box, potable (drinking) water meter and potable water hose bibbs, and to conduct an inspection of sprinkler systems and hose bibb components to ensure compliance with the state law. During these inspections, the potable water meter servicing your property will be turned off for a short time and potable water hose bibbs will be opened. Residents may notice a small amount of air in the plumbing system when faucets are initially turned on after the inspection. When reclaimed water service was initially established, the terms of service explained the importance of the county or Pinellas County Public Health Unit staff periodically entering the premises to inspect reclaimed water piping and fittings. Most inspections do not require the homeowner or resident to be home to operate their irrigation system, unless the inspector determines that a complete cross connection inspection is necessary due to system alterations made since the initial inspection. Utilities inspectors will be in uniform and driving marked county vehicles. A tag will be left on the door with results of the inspection. If customers have questions or need additional information, please call Pinellas County Utilities Customer Service at 464-4000.Justice and Consumer Services moving officeAs of Monday, Aug. 29, Pinellas Countys Department of Justice and Consumer Services will be in new offices at 631 Chestnut St. in Briefs downtown Clearwater, the former home of the Pinellas County Park Department (currently Parks and Conservation Services).

Visit such thing as too much informationBecause pets cannot speak and tell us what is wrong, it is extremely important to monitor your pet as closely as you can. That means observing your pet urinate and defecate so you can see what the urine and feces look like. Is the stool normal or is it diarrhea? Does the stool have blood or mucous in it? Is your pet defecating and urinating daily? Is there blood in the urine? Is your pet straining to defecate or urinate? Monitoring how much your pet is eating and drinking is very important as well. Self-feeders make that very difficult to tell from day to day. Self-feeders also can lead to overweight pets. Is your pet drinking excessively and urinating more than normal? This is a classic symptom for diabetes, hyperthyroidism in older cats, Cushings disease in older dogs, and kidney disease. The more questions you are able to answer accurately, the more likely your veterinarian can diagnose what is wrong with your pet. The person who is most in tune to the pets daily behavior is the one who should bring the pet in for their appointment. If that cant be done, then writing down your main concerns about your pet as well as some of these answers on a piece of paper and giving it to the person bringing the pet is very helpful. They can then give this to the veterinarian for review. Knowing exactly what brand and type of food, heartworm and flea preventative used is also very helpful. Many animals can have food allergies, food intolerances, or problems related to changing brands of food too frequently. Knowing when a new food, treat, or bag was opened or introduced to your pet can help a lot when trying to diagnose vomiting and diarrhea cases. Many dogs can get bloody stool and vomit when they eat people food, or are out in the backyard unattended eating whatever they find in the yard. Therefore, walking your dogs and watching what they are putting in their mouths or knowing what is in your backyard can be of great help. One very costly disease we see in pets is pancreatitis. In dogs this can be caused by feeding your dog high-fat people food. That strip of bacon or fat off your steak can be a costly mistake. If the vomiting is serious with this disease then these pets have to be hospitalized for treatment for a few to several days with IV fluids and injectable medications. That is what makes this such a costly disease to treat. Knowing what others in the household are feeding your pet, especially at parties is important. Dogs and cats pick up on stress easily and this can lead to several health problems as well. Cats can get blood in their urine for several reasons but one reason (interstitial cystitis) has been linked to stress. If you eliminate the stress, then the blood goes away. It could be something as simple as construction in the house, a new baby, a new pet, new address change, etc. So as you can see, veterinarians rely on you, the pet owner, to be very observant of your pets daily activities and behaviors in order to develop a diagnostic and treatment plan that will be in your pets best interest. If we have no knowledge as to how the pet is eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, or if the pet is vomiting, limping, etc. then all we have is what we find on our exams to determine the diagnostic and treatment plan. Since our pets are so good at hiding pain and sickness, a lot of the time we wont pick this up on our exams without some kind of history from the owner and diagnostic tests. Knowing more about your pet will help to ensure the best and most cost effective care.Kim Donovan, D.V.M., is an associate veterinarian and medical director at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 13 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine.

People may feel confused and overwhelmed, but help is available. Local SHINE programs are filled with volunteers who offer seniors free, unbiased advice about Medicare. Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders is through the Florida Department on Aging and consists of trained volunteers, said Sue Samson, associate planner and SHINE liaison. Seniors can call SHINE to get live, unbiased help for all sorts of health care questions, Samson said. This could range from health insurance and long-term care planning to Medicare/ Medicaid and prescription assistance. The counselors also do annual election period planning, give introductions to Medicare information, and help sort out billing issues, said Janet Mills, volunteer area coordinator. One of the most important things that the SHINE volunteers want the public to know is that the annual enrollment period dates have changed this year, Mills said. There is a new election period date this year, which is October 15 through December 7, Mills said, and people will need to know that because its different than in previous years. The Medicare plans change a little every year, plus, peoples situations are always changing, so it is important that people reevaluate their plan and ensure they choose the best one for them and their situation, Mills and Samson said. People who cant afford their medications and are over 60 may qualify for special programs, and SHINE volunteers can help them find ways to work around financial problems and get the medication they need, said Sheryl Avruch, a SHINE volunteer from Dunedin. The volunteers know of a lot of creative ways to help seniors get what they need, Mills said. If they dont qualify for the medication programs, maybe they could qualify for food stamps, which could help them use the saved money on food for their medications. Samson said there are many cases later in life when situations change and all of a sudden people need to know about and be responsible for things that they never had to before. Sometimes the husband has always done the bills and unfortunately he passes away and the wife is like, I dont even know what I have, Samson said. People can get help through SHINE either via phone or at its various locations throughout Pinellas County. The Dunedin Public Library had partnered with SHINE and provides space for individual counseling each Wednesday. There also are offices in Clearwaters Aging Well Center, Largo, Gulfport, St. Petersburg, two in Seminole, and tience and caring. She became a volunteer so she could help others just like she had once been helped. Volunteering with SHINE is a lot of work, but it is great for lifelong learners who want to help people, the volunteers agreed. They commit to at least 16 hours a month of their time. Volunteers are always needed for SHINE. Last year, about 50 volunteers helped serve 8,000 people, Samson said. They spent an average of an hour of counseling with each of those people, she said. For information about SHINE, to volunteer, or to get help from a volunteer, call 800-96-ELDER (800-963-5337) 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or visit Volunteers can also help people connect with the appropriate agency and resources regarding caregiver support, case management, personal care, housing options, legal help, Meals on Wheels, Medicare fraud, victim advocacy, transportation, and access to resources for adults with mental illness or developmental disabilities.SHINE helps seniors navigate health care issues BRIEFS, from page 7AIn addition, the department conducts criminal investigations of consumer fraud, mediation of consumer complaints and provides consumer outreach information to alert the public regarding scams, consumer fraud, identity theft and Internet crime. The main consumer line is 464-6200.

Although Pinellas County is not in a primary area, local farmers can apply for emergency loans due to a rule that creates eligibility for contiguous counties. Hillsborough County is included in the list of primary disaster areas. Qualified farm operators in the designated areas are eligible for low interest emergency loans from USDAs Farm Service Agency, provided that eligibility requirements are met. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans to help cover part of their actual losses. FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability. FSA has a variety of programs, in addition to the EM loan program, to help eligible farmers recover from adversity. USDA also has made other programs available to assist farmers and ranchers, including the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program, approved as part of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008; the Emergency Conservation Program; Federal Crop Insurance; and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. Interested farmers may contact their local USDA Service Centers for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs. Additional information is also available online at available for storm seasonPinellas County may be able to assist low-income homeowners make important home improvements with a Hurricane Mitigation Grant. Up to $20,000 is available to help residents prepare their home for storm season. The property must be the primary residence with a just value not to exceed $151,000 as listed by the Property Appraisers Office. Income guidelines also apply. Eligible repairs include: Reinforcement or replacement of roof systems Hurricane roof straps Impact-resistant windows Permanent hurricane shutters Wind-resistant garage doors and exterior doors Mobile home tie-downs and anchors (mobile homes built prior to 1976 are not eligible) In addition to the Hurricane Mitigation Grant, Pinellas County offers 0-percent-interest loans that may be used to make necessary home improvements and additional hurricane mitigation. The same income and property eligibility guidelines apply. The maximum loan amount is $20,000 and must be repaid within 20 years. The low interest loan and grant may be used together. According to Anthony M. Jones, director of Pinellas County Community Development, It is extremely important for residents to take hurricane preparedness seriously. These programs are an excellent opportunity to help residents fortify their homes and be better prepared for storm season. The program is available for properties in unincorporated Pinellas County and several surrounding cities. Residents in Clearwater, Largo, St. Petersburg and Belleair Shore should contact those cities directly to inquire about the availability of housing repair programs.

People can enroll for Medicare three months before their 65th birthday, so its important that people start researching in advance, Mills said, and evaluate their options.

The Chronicle identified 12 features of an excellent academic workplace and asked faculty and staff at colleges of all sizes and types from across the country to assess their employers in those terms. Eckerd employees rated the college highly enough to be recognized in the Compensation and Benefits category. The Compensation and Benefits category is defined as Pay is fair, and benefits meet the needs of employees. One of Eckerds notable features relating to compensation and benefits is the fact that should an employee participate in a retirement fund option, the college will contribute 10 percent of the employees salary to the fund whether or not the employee contributes anything to the account. Of Eckerd Colleges employees, 114 full-time faculty and 140 administrators and exempt professionals were invited to participate in the survey. Eckerd is one of only five Florida schools on the entire list. Eckerd is one of 111 institutions recognized as a 2011 Great College to Work For, including 85 four-year institutions and 26 twoyear institutions. Eckerd is one of 10 small, fouryear colleges recognized in the Compensation and Benefits category.

What do you think?With abandoned buildings serving as bleak visual reminders of the lingering effects of the recession, its easy to overlook some good news pertaining to commercial and residential development in the area. Take Seminole, for example. About 60 acres in the Bay Pines area will be developed. The project includes 330 apartments and 483 residential units for senior housing or townhomes. Developers are seeking contractors to build a 125-room hotel, 204,000 square feet of retail space, the residential component and a restaurant. The project should create a significant amount of property taxes and other revenue for the city as well as job opportunities. Meanwhile, the news that the Seminole Mall, located on Park Boulevard, is under foreclosure proceedings could be the start of new development on the property. Its central location and close proximity to the beaches eventually should attract investors committed to some type of venture that will revitalize the property, with or without the mall. The time frame for such a turnaround remains to be seen, but city officials see the foreclosure as a positive process. In Largo, the west Walsingham Road corridor has enjoyed a rebirth of restaurants and other businesses in the past couple of years, particularly in the past six months. Thats not surprising since it is surrounded by stable residential areas and located close to the beaches. Clearwater officials are all smiles about plans for a three-story building on the Clearwater Beach that will have a Starbucks Coffee Shop and a Hooters Restaurant. Though the city may take some flak about the beach losing its mom and pop ambiance, the new development should help provide more options for visitors, especially since both Starbucks and Hooters are both successful business chains. Local government officials recognize they have to take more of an active role than just be cheerleaders to attract new development. Reducing red tape in the permitting process and relaxing signage rules are good tactics to help new as well as existing businesses, but longterm consistent economic planning is the most effective means of weathering a recession. Of course, no local government can be entirely successful of ridding its community of abandoned commercial properties. Even the best efforts to encourage new development and support existing businesses sometimes fail, no matter what governments do. See a new restaurant, auto parts store or other business where an abandoned building used to be? OK, it may not be the essence of beauty. But from an economic standpoint, consider it a sight for sore eyes.

Unlike the Biblical Lazarus who came out restored to do good, this plan has been restored to do evil. The Clearwater Beacon quotes Mayor Hibbard: I am not comfortable with cameras in general it smacks of Big Brother but we are facing budget woes. Money talks and morals walk. The Big Brother factor should be enough in itself to stop this in its tracks from a mayor who should understand the full meaning of his words. But I believe he was lobbied, enticed and swayed much like big government. I am like Mary, grieving at the lost brother. Clearwater has been sold to Big Brother with the mayors consent for money like Judas Iscariot. Red light cameras are purely and simply a way to make up for lost revenue in these hard economic times. This is a very obvious money-grabbing ploy. Installing red light cameras is certainly not to free up police officers since an officer will have to review the ticket and video. But they say they are free to substitute a certified technician? Who is certifying the technician who is paying for his training or certification? Is that a whole new job title? Two things that cost money? Red light cameras dont prevent accidents; they just record them proving fault. How much manpower will be needed when tickets and fines are challenged? It was not me driving the car you say? Now I have to prove who was? I read recently if you say it wasnt you driving then the other person will get more fines? So now you want to force people to say they were driving so that their sister, brother, aunt, uncle or friend wont have to pay a bigger fine than if it were you. And thats OK with Big Brother since they still get your money and they tell the victim its OK. It wont be on your license anyway just pay up. Slippery slope isnt it. Just remember Clearwater Council, you freely oiled the slope. Lets not forget these cameras are outsourced, so who is holding them accountable? How much will it take to hold them accountable? Money breeds contempt. So who will make sure the city of Clearwater is getting everything it is supposed to receive? Now we have to pay to have that outside vendor/company audited. How often and at what cost? The city gets $75 of every $158 they collect and they still have to pay the camera vendor. Stop the red-light cameras and start acting like the Constitution means something. Vonabell Sherman ClearwaterMemorial seems heavy-handedEditor: Though I by no means want to disparage the feeling of the effort, I believe at least a few of the victims of 9/11 would share my dismay that our limited green spaces attract so much concrete. In this small Madeira Beach park in particular the proposed memorial seems heavy-handed and out of scale, further blocking the view of the water. Folks who share my sentiments are rarely consulted about such things. If we were, we might suggest something living instead, perhaps a memorial grove of something that blooms in September. However, history instructs me that imagination invites abuse. And so, I await it. Michael Blom Madeira BeachIt was 50 years ago this summer that a couple of guys were sitting in a California garage, noodling around with a song. Their names were Mike and Brian. As Mike recalls, It didnt take that long. Just a few minutes. And when you read the final lyrics you believe him: Surfin is the only life The only way for me. Now surf, surf with me Bom Bom Dit Di Dit Dip Bom Bom Dit Di Dit Dip... Mike and Brian, along with two of Brians brothers and a family friend, took the song to a local record company, which had wanted them to do a folk tune like the Kingston Trio. Instead, the kids gave them this little ditty, called no surprise Surfin. And the Beach Boys were born. I dont know which stuns me more: that these guys have been around 50 years, or that I still remember their first hit. But there is something undeniable about the Beach Boys legacy, something that says there is music, and there is iconic music. Why do songs like California Girls, Wouldnt It Be Nice, or Fun Fun Fun still sound fresh, still make people smile, still throw a beam of sunshine over the coldest day? It has to be more than the chords, right? We really wanted to do something that was us, and surfing was a reality in Southern California, Mike Love told me in talking about their first hit song last week. The Beach Boys, in their current incarnation, were coming to suburban Detroit for a concert. Of course, many of the names that made the original group so special werent there including Brian Wilson or his now-departed brothers, Dennis and Carl. But at this point, even the Beach Boys name is an institution. Surfing was part of our environment part of the landscape part of the language and the dress and the attitude where we lived and yet nobody had done a song about it, Love said. Surfin maybe the least well-known of the Beach Boys hits was their first entry into that genre. Ironically, as the years passed, the guys in the band, most of whom were decent surfers, had less and less time in the ocean. Every summer was spent on tour. Even as songs like Surfin Safari and Surfin USA became progressively bigger hits, the men singing them were pretty much landlocked. In time they sang about cars (Little Deuce Coupe, ), about school (I Get Around, Be True To Your School), about the innocence of youth (When I Grow Up To Be A Man, In My Room) and eventually, about psychedelic spirituality (Good Vibrations). But throughout it all, one thing was constant. Their sound was unique. And you hummed along with their songs. As is probably obvious, I am a huge Beach Boys fan. I admire the genius of Brian Wilsons arrangements, his harmonies, his innovative use of sounds and instruments. That he did this on such simple infrastructure as In My Room or Dont Worry Baby only makes it that much more impressive. And there is no shame in being serious about music and serious about the Beach Boys. Even the Beatles were envious of their work. Still, there is something about finding out that the Beach Boys, as a band, are 50 years old, and Love is in his 70s. In The Picture of Dorian Gray, the lead character never aged, only a hidden portrait of him showed the decay of deeds and years. In real life, the Beach Boys have it better. Their hairlines, waistlines and birthday cakes may tell one story, but their music tells another. It tells the same magical tale it did the day they took a garage-created tune and started singing it into microphones. They stay young every time we hear them. And, gratefully, we do, too.Mitch Albom is a Detroit Free Press columnist.Their music still captures youth EDITORIALSomething good to seeHeres good development news in case you missed it 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli Retail Advertising Manager: Jay Rey Classied Advertising Manager: Shelly Fournier Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter Seminole/Beach Beacon: Bob McClure Largo Leader/Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond Belleair/Beach Bee: Chary Southmayd Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl Pinellas Park Beacon: Juliana A.

Marianne Fisher CEO FAMILY PRACTICE &INTERNAL MEDICINE The debt ceiling is raised. The stock market drops. Americans tighten their [financial] belts further. The government barely does the same. For the tenuous State of our Union, some say its a victory. Others call it a weak down payment. For others, its a disgusting reneging of responsibility. Its all true. Spookily, the same is playing out at sea as well. To recap the most recent maritime events in our local waters, there are three stories to tell. Like the stranglehold of Washingtonian inertia against our staggering national debt, the oldest of the youngest members of our local bottlenose dolphin community is entangled in fishing line. One is innocent. The other is not. Like our own country, the halfyearling bottlenose dolphin calf Vidalia was born in the chilliest of times. Yet it survived to triumphant over environmental ravages, which at sea include parasites and predators (Dolphin Watchs Hassles of tassels; whether in a good or bad way, I darent say). Vidalia launched undeterred into its early childhood, as our young country did, swelling from the riches of its own making. The dolphin calf swelled from the miracle of a healthy mothers milk, stimulated by the babys presence. Our country swelled from the industry of her citizens, inspired by the freedom to excel. All was well for many moons until the calf encountered something it could have never recognized as a threat: discarded fishing line. From an apparently modest, if such a thing is possible, body wrapping of three strands of fishing line in mid-July the way we encircle a wrapped gift with thin bright ribbon pulled nice and tight to a dangerous wad of hideously accumulated fishing line and imbedded fish hook by the end of the month, the innocent baby dolphin Vidalia is either sentenced to a slow death or destined to suffer a terrifying rescue at the hands of people expert at catching, rescuing and releasing entangled marine life. In the world of marine biology, these experts are known as stranding biologists. Without minimizing the calfs uncertain fate, one cant ignore Vidalias plight as a metaphor of our beautiful young countrys future. And who among us is innocent? But the question of relative innocence remains. The second story is about Peewee, the suddenly teen-aged dolphin released from childhood by her mother Ps giving birth to Peewees rival sibling over the Fourth of July. I had wished for a physical way to identify Peewee after she weaned from her prolific mother As told in Dolphin Watchs Known by the slit of a shark, that wish was unabashedly fulfilled. Last Sunday, after tracking the slow milling of tense adults (not unlike Congress over the same period), a lone young teen dolphin ventured over to our boat. Its behavior said it knew us well. Its newly wounded dorsal fin, pink at the top from the fresh loss of its fin tip, made immediate identification impossible. But later analysis of photo-identification pictures showed that it was Peewee. That glancing blow from a shark the month before took but the slightest toll. Peewee the kid dolphin lost her previously secure life at the side of her powerful and protective mother P and then took another hit that, all things considered, maybe wasnt insurmountable. Another metaphor for our beautiful country? Maybe. The third story is of the nursery group of dolphins we saw the same day as Vidalia and Peewee. There were four local dolphin moms (Stick, Bet, SBT and Courtney). Each mom was with her calf. What made this maritime moment special was that three of the four moms had tiny shiny new dolphin babies, none more than four weeks old in a potential lifespan of 50 years a generation by bottlenose dolphin terms but also human terms before medical care. SBT had a baby in 2006 that died. She kept the body with her as long as she could but inevitably had to move on. The other two moms with tiny shiny babies are Stick and Bet, calves we watched grow up (Dolphin Watchs Spooky action at a distance; Bet on the surging and sucking of fortunes). The fragile new lives theyve engendered, stumbling up to the surface for life-giving air, are the first for them both. Like all new ventures, they represent great promise. Are they also a metaphor? The question remains. Who among us is innocent?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit GA1088-1815, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is standing by should its services be needed.Photo by ANN WEAVERSix-month-old bottlenose dolphin Vidalia swims tethered to an unrelenting companion: a hopeless tangle of discarded monofilament fishing line strapped to its left side. The gallows rope is bejeweled with an imbedded fishing hook animated by a live fish.With the full moon approaching, now is the time to target mangrove snapper. Bay reefs and bridges as well as offshore reefs are good places to target snapper right now, however, typically the farther offshore you fish the larger the snapper will be. The many manmade artificial reefs that range anywhere from 10 to 12 miles offshore offers the perfect habitat to attract big schools of snapper. Snapper prefer spots with a lot of high structure, and many of these reefs are constructed of huge barges as well as large slabs of concrete. The preferred baits when targeting snapper would be small pilchards and/or threadfin herring as well as live shrimp. The threadfins and pilchards can be netted at any bridge shadow line; their abundance can make it easy to collect plenty of bait to use on the hook as well as for chum in a short amount of time. These small baits work just as well dead as alive. Use a quarter inch cast net and fill a five-gallon bucket about half way with bait and ice, and you should have enough bait for a good bite. Anchor up-tide of the bridge or reef that you intend to fish and begin the chumming process. Deploying a quality chum block will make all the difference. Combine that with a constant flow of free pilchards, and soon enough youll have the snapper balled up and working bait right behind the boat. As a rule of thumb, the larger snapper will hang closer to the surface, so free-lining your bait will look the most natural to these larger, more wary fish. Free-lining requires you to pay close attention to how your bait looks as its falling natural toward the bottom. If you dont allow your bait to fall at the same rate as those youre throwing out for chum, the snapper will refuse your offering every time. For the terminal end definitely think smaller and lighter No. 1 hooks and long stretch of 15 or 20 pound leader and 10 or 15 pound braided line. If current speed is too strong to allow for free-lining or youre trying to get the kids involved, try using a small egg sinker anywhere from an eighth to a half an ounce at the most. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. Almost all adults over the age of 40 years will show some evidence of disc degeneration on X-rays. However, the great majority will not have back pain, or if they do, it will come and go or be due to trauma. This should suggest that, although the degenerated discs are a contributing factor in their pain, it is not the cause of their pain. Many persons who have been told from spinal Xrays that they have degenerated discs in their back have suffered needlessly if they were also told that there was not a good way to treat the problem, and they should just modify their life and live with it. They should instead explore all treatment options. With age, almost all discs will degenerate. However, from a variety of factors such as previous injury, genetics and other as yet unknown factors, some discs begin to degenerate at an early age. The spinal discs are the soft cartilage pads that occupy the space between the vertebra and spinal bones. It is the disc that is capable of compressing and bending allowing the joints of the spine to move. Without discs, the spine would be a rigid column of bones unable to bend. When a disc begins to degenerate, it allows the joint to move improperly causing pinching of one part of the joint. The term used for this painful joint pinching is joint impingement. As impingement is the source of the pain, and not the degenerative disc, treatment which corrects the impingement will often totally relieve the pain associated with disc degeneration. Chiropractic manipulation has proven to be a good method of correction of the impingement associated with disc degeneration. In a large study of chronic back pain patients at the Department of Orthopedics at University Hospital in Saskatchewan, Canada, researchers found that chiropractic manipulation was very effective in relieving back pain in over 80 percent of those involved in the study (all of whom had undergone multiple other treatment methods unsuccessfully). More recently, spinal axial decompression has been shown to give significant relief to those suffering from impingement syndromes secondary to disc degeneration. While there are many types of axial decompression on the market, the one with research on this specific subject is the Cox axial decompression used by many chiropractic physicians. It includes flexion distraction manipulation coupled at the same time with axial decompression, and is effective for both the cervical and the lumbar spines. Anyone who has spent time living his or her life with back pain because of disc degeneration should consider chiropractic treatment. It is a proven effective method. Why continue to suffer? Consult with your family doctor of chiropractic medicine today.Seek help for disc degeneration that causes back pain?Bowling benefit plannedLARGO A bowling benefit called Put Cancer in the Gutter, will be held Sunday, Aug. 14, 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., at Twedts Lanes, 13100 Seminole Blvd. The cost is $15 per person.

For more information on this event, call Kathi Wiegand at 738-7052 or email tag-team to beat arrhythmiaLARGO Two expert cardiac physicians at Largo Medical Center are combining their unique skills to perform a closed-chest minimally invasive approach to heart arrhythmia surgery called the convergent procedure. Together, in the same room here at Largo Medical Center, a cardiac electro physiologist and a cardiac surgeon are putting a stop to the most common heart rhythm disorder in the United States called Atrial Fibrillation or Afib, said Richard Satcher, CEO of Largo Medical Center, in a press release. The convergent procedure is nothing like traditional open heart surgery where a patient recovers in the hospital for days with a huge incision down the middle of their chest. "I make a one inch incision in a patients abdomen," said Joseph Diliberto Jr., M.D., chief of cardiac surgery at Largo Medical Center. "Then, I burn scars on the outside surface of the patient's heart to block the abnormal electrical signals [heartbeats]." "As an electro physiologist, I create similar scars but inside the heart, at areas that Dr. Diliberto cant reach from the outside," said John F. Norris, M.D., the director of cardiac electrophysiology at Largo Medical Center. "Then at the completion of the procedure, I test the patients heart to ensure all the abnormal electrical signals [heartbeats] have been eliminated." The convergent procedure is performed on a beating heart, so hospital recovery time is relatively short. Norris says he often releases the patient in as little as 48 hours after surgery. Since the inception of the convergent procedure program at Largo Medical Center, many Afib patients have stopped taking medications they have been on for years thanks to the excellent results associated with the combined approach.Messler earns SFHM designationCLEARWATER Jordan Messler, M.D., medical director of the hospitalist program at Morton Plant Hospital, recently received the Senior Fellow in Hospital Medicine designation from the Society of Hospital Medicine. To earn the SFHM designation, hospitalists must demonstrate their dedication to quality and process improvement, commitment to organizational teamwork and leadership, as well as lifelong learning and education. Messler is one of 175 hospitalists across the country inducted into the 2011 Society of Hospital Medicines class of Senior Fellows. Senior Fellows are the national and local leaders in the growing specialty of hospital medicine. Hospitalists are physicians who take care of hospitalized patients who do not have a physician or whose primary care physician prefers to have an on-site medical team in charge of coordinating care. Dr. Messler has been on the forefront of hospital improvement processes and initiatives at Morton Plant Hospital since 2005, said Donald Pocock, M.D., Morton Plant Mease chief medical officer, in a press release. Because of his dedication to process improvements, our hospital system continues to grow and offer the best quality inpatient care. Messler was part of the multidisciplinary team for Project BOOST (Better Outcomes for Older Adults through Safe Transitions), to implement evidence-based interventions aimed at improving the discharge process and patient satisfaction.Aging Solutions Ofce of the Public Guardian, P.O.

Abrams film Star Trek, Rise of the Planet of the Apes resurrects and regenerates a classic science fiction saga, delivering a surprisingly entertaining prequel and the potential for a new series of films. Directed by Rupert Wyatt, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set in modern San Francisco. As the story opens, the focus is on Will Rodman, a lead scientist at a pharmaceutical company, who is working on a cure for Alzheimers disease. Apes are used to test the experimental ALZ 112 treatment in the laboratory. One female chimpanzee, nicknamed Bright Eyes, shows remarkable intellectual improvement after receiving ALZ 112, prompting Will to request approval for human trial. Early in the film, a misunderstanding brings a premature and violent end to the program, and Steve Jacobs Wills greedy, coldhearted boss demands that Robert Franklin, the senior ape caretaker, dispose of all the apes involved in the program. One ape survives, however: It is discovered that Bright Eyes had given birth while in captivity in the lab. Having already put down all the apes in the lab, Robert refuses to administer a lethal injection. Will reluctantly agrees to take the baby chimpanzee home. From here, Wyatt interweaves two storylines: One of the baby chimpanzee, Caesar, who has inherited advanced intelligence from his mother; and the other of Charles Rodman, Wills father, who is afflicted with Alzheimers disease. Years pass, and as Caesar progresses, Charles deteriorates at least until Will steals ALZ 112 and uses it to treat his fathers disease. Later, when Caesar attacks one of Wills neighbors to protect Charles, authorities confiscate him and banish him in a primate sanctuary a metaphorical prison complete with a cruel and corrupt warden and a brutal, inhuman prison guard. Like Abrams re-imagining of the Star Trek franchise, Rise of the Planet of the Apes does not fit snugly into the continuity of the original series instead, it allows for new concepts to mingle with the more traditional themes. The first film in the franchise, 1968s Planet of the Apes, is perhaps the best known of the entire series. Starring Charlton Heston as the human astronaut Taylor and Roddy McDowall as the chimpanzee archaeologist and historian Cornelius, the film was based on the 1963 novel La plante des singes by Pierre Boulle. Rise of the Planet of the Apes shares a similar premise with the fourth film in the original series, 1972s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. Directed by J. Lee Thompson, the film depicts a dystopian future in which domesticated apes have become slave labor. Caesar, an intelligent chimpanzee from the future, leads the enslaved population in an armed rebellion. While Wyatt plays down sociopolitical themes in his reboot of the franchise, Rise of the Planet of the Apes isnt devoid of ethical significance. Wyatt clearly questions the mistreatment of animals as test subjects and suggests the consequences of genetic engineering may be dire. Those points, however, are implied: Wyatt is never guilty of preaching in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Andy Serkis breathes life into Caesar. Serkis successfully communicates Caesars evolving sense of self. The audience feels his loneliness as a child protg; his anguish as an outcast; his bitterness as a victimized inmate. The film is built around Caesars ascendency, and Serkis absolutely thrives in this role. James Franco is underwhelming as Will. Franco fails to make the character interesting, likable or consistent. Freida Pinto is cast as his love interest Caroline Aranha. Neither the script nor the performances imbue this relationship with enough vigor to make it believable. John Lithgow gives a much more compelling performance as Charles, highlighting the torment of Alzheimers disease convincingly. Poor Tom Felton who played the spoiled snob Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise plays another miscreant here. Felton sure knows how to fill an audience with loathing and his portrayal makes the CGI apes which he abuses appear that much more civilized in comparison. Serkis award-worthy performance combined with breathtaking special effects, performance cap-Movie reviewSerkis performance dominates Rise of the Planet of the Apes Photo courtesy of TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM CORPORATIONIn Caesar, Academy Award-winning visual effects house WETA Digital has created a CG character of unprecedented emotion and intelligence, for the film Rise of the Planet of the Apes.ture technology and a thoughtprovoking story allow Wyatt to induce such sympathy for the oppressed simians that audiences find themselves rooting for apes by the time Rise of the Planet of the Apes rises to its inevitable crescendo. The last pulse-pounding 30 minutes of the film are as visually breathtaking as they are unsettling and downright scary. Wyatt also cleverly plants plot seeds throughout the film, anticipating a franchise renaissance. Rise of the Planet of the Apes leaves audiences primed for a string of sequels.Quick factsFilm: Rise of the Planet of the Apes Cast: James Franco, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Tyler Labine Director: Rupert Wyatt Release date: Aug. 5, 2011 Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 110 minutes Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe HoroscopesCrossword Across 1.

Call 791-7400 or visit Since 1989, the singer-songwriter has released nine albums and earned nearly a dozen Grammy nominations. She has walked away with three Grammy Awards to date, including a win in 1991 for Steady On in the Best Contemporary Folk Album category; and two nods in 1998 for Sunny Came Home, in both the Record of the Year and Song of the Year categories. Colvin was born in 1956 in Vermillion, S.D. and relocated to a smalltown community the university town of Carbondale, Ill. at age 8. By age 10, she found herself drawn to the guitar. She was playing gigs at the University of Illinois at age 15. In Austin, Texas, Colvin formed a western swing band in the late 1970s before moving to New York to join the Buddy Miller Band. She continued to flutter around the fringes of the spotlight until meeting producer, guitarist, and co-writer John Leventhal. According to a biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency, Leventhal inspired Colvin to find her own voice as a songwriter. After honing her skills, Colvin signed to Columbia Records and recorded her debut album, Steady On, in 1989. The album earned Colvin her first Grammy Award. Colvin followed up with Fat City (1992) and Cover Girl (1994). While she had already won critical acclaim, the artists first taste of commercial success came in 1996 when she released her breakthrough A Few Small Repairs album. The album featured the murder-ballad Sunny Came Home which reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. The song also won two of Grammy Awards. Holiday Songs and Lullabies, released in 1998, was recorded while Colvin was pregnant with her daughter Caledonia. The 2001 release Whole New You and the 2004 greatest hits compilation Polaroids proved to be Colvins final releases through Columbia. For 2004s These Four Walls, Colvin migrated to Nonesuch Records, owned by Warner Music Group. Her debut on the label received praise from fans and critics alike. According to Michael Hill, writing for Nonesuch Records, the first song Colvin completed for These Four Walls was Summer Dress. The song opens with Colvin singing over the austere strum of a lone acoustic guitar, then builds into a lilting folk-rock arrangement. Colvins inspired performance exhibits both self-assurance and vulnerability. The album highlights shared experiences and universal epiphanies, connecting with listeners in a way that feels familiar and confidential. Ive been doing this a long time, Colvin said on the Nonesuch Records website when the album was first released. Its great to feel like Im doing my best work now. Colvins most recent release, 2009s Shawn Colvin Live, was recorded in 2008 during a special three-night solo engagement at Yoshis, a well-known San Francisco jazz club. The collection showcases 12 songs written or co-written by Colvin, as well as covers of songs by other artists. Listeners will find covers of Robbie Robertsons Twilight and Gnarls Barkleys Crazy as well as a version of Talking Heads This Must Be the Place. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording. The Capitol Theatre provides the perfect setting for a Colvin concert. This singer-songwriter is at heart a storyteller, and the intimate and comfortable theater offers a suitable atmosphere in which her lyrics can truly resonate.Shawn Colvin performs at Capitol Photo by TRACI GOUDIE/PARADIGM TALENT AGENCYClearwaters Capitol Theatre welcomes singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin Aug. 12.
