Four of the little critters and their mother frolicked in a tree before dashing off into the woods.Something darkly cute By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Responding to criticism from residents on the issue, three of the Largo commissioners spoke out in favor of city staff volunteering in the community during their hours working for the city. Specifically at issue during the Jan. 8 commission meeting is the citys involvement in a science fair at Ridgecrest Elementary School on Jan. 29. Last month, the school, which is in the unincorporated part of Largo, asked the city if its employees could help judge the event. Employees have participated in the past, but they are volunteering their time to judge the event during a workday morning. Commissioner Curtis Holmes echoed the objections residents raised in regards to the policy. Taxpayers are paying these people to perform a job. And part of that job, I dont think, involves going to a grammar school that I went to last year and judging a science fair for elementary students, he said. If the staff thats volunteering for this wish to take a personal day or a vacation day, I have no problem with that at all. But if theyre going to go out there while on city time doing ancillary work thats got absolutely nothing to do with the city of Largo, I have a big problem on that. Holmes called the current policy a conversion of city property. Aside from the science fair, city employees also help out Habitat for Humanitys construction effort, during what is dubbed Largo Day, and participate in the Great American Teach-in once a year. There is no difference between City staff helping out Ridgecrest while being paid than there is to volunteer and take a day off to help build a Habitat for Humanity home and being paid, City Manager Mac Craig stated in an email on the issue last month. He reiterated his argument during the meeting. I think its a valuable thing to do, See VOLUNTEERS, page 4A By TOM GERMONDST. PETERSBURG City officials continue to be aggressive in their efforts to make streets safer for pedestrians by following the course that became a priority for former Mayor Rick Baker more than a decade ago. In the past 10 years the city has received more than $30 million in federal government funds for bicycle and pedestrian related improvements and has earned national recognition for being a pioneer in the use of LEDs beacons at intersections. The rectangular rapid flashing beacons have been installed at 42 intersections in the city. Another 55 will be installed next year through $800,000 allocated to the city.What a difference a decade makesA group called the Surface Transportation Policy Institute produced a report every two to four years in the 1990s called Mean Streets. The greater metropolitan area of Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater was always near the top areas based on the institutes analysis, said Mike Frederick, manager-neighborhood transportation for the city of St. Petersburg. In 2000 when Mayor Rick Baker started, he put community safety as one of his platforms. One of his goals was to get St. Petersburg off the Mean Streets report, Frederick said. City officials began work on a bicycle-pedestrian master plan, See ST.

By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO For Largo Police Sgt. George Edmiston, no news as in no pedestrians getting hit and dying while trying to cross Largo roads means the citys pedestrian safety enforcement campaign is working. Its unfortunate: I dont have the crystal ball to say how many lives weve saved this year. But Im confident weve saved a few, he said. The Largo Police Department is in its third round of funding for the pedestrian safety program, a partnership with the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration and the Florida Department of Transportation, which started in July 2010 with $50,000. The program allows Largo police to address the problem of too many pedestrian traffic deaths through enforcement of pedestrian laws, educating the public about safety measures and working with city engineers to improve the design of the roads where crashes are occurring. Confident that the program has improved the safety of pedestrians, the department has renewed the partnership twice: in April 2011 for another $50,000 and in April 2012 for an increase to $70,000. When we first started this program a year and a half ago, it was all about educating and conducting some engineering changes that we noticed were causing some of the issues that were leading up to serious injuries or fatalities, Edmiston said. In particular, the program has focused on specific corridors where statistics show pedestrians getting hit by vehicles more often. In Largo, that meant the stretch of Missouri Avenue south of Rosary Road, between the major Walmart and Kmart shopping centers on either side. On that particular corridor, there were several things that were affecting pedestrians, Edmiston said. For one, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority bus stops were placed in the middle of the block, a long enough distance from the nearest crosswalk at Rosary Road that residents would cross Missouri Avenue without it. After all, the shortest distance from A to B is a straight line, Edmiston explained. They were just crossing six lanes of traffic, walking through the landscaped medians, pushing strollers, running, in wheelchairs, you name it. We saw this time and time again throughout various studies when this grant started, he said. They were taking inherent risks that were actually causing injuries to themselves or resulting in fatalities.

LARGO, from page 1Aprogram coincided with a scheduled repaving of the roadway, and the city of Largo was able to coordinate with the state Department of Transportation to enact various changes. A series of signs, visible from the sidewalks, were installed in the median of the road to communicate No pedestrians. Use crosswalks. The bus stop was moved farther north, and the sidewalks were widened. The intersection of Missouri Avenue and Rosary Road also was changed. Dedicated turn lanes that allowed drivers to turn right, but created a pork chopshaped island median between the sidewalk and the main road were removed. Instead, the sidewalk that leads to the crosswalk was extended to make a tighter angle for motorists to drive around and to decrease the length of the crosswalk itself. The least amount of time in the roadway the safer the pedestrian is, Edmiston said. If you dont have something that allows (drivers) to just whip around the corner and forces you to stop, thats where its safer for the pedestrian as well. The program pays for off-duty police officers to work overtime and focus on pedestrian issues. Six days a week, usually for a three-hour shift during the mornings and afternoons, at least one officer is watching for pedestrians who arent using crosswalks or drivers who are failing to yield to them. The department issues about 200 citations a month, though citations have been declining as the program progresses. Folks see you and they double take and they push the (pedestrian crossing) button. Or they see you, and they walk to the crosswalks, Edmiston said. So it does work Folks know that its not worth $62.50 Im going to the light, and Im crossing. And thats the safest place for pedestrians to cross. At the beginning of the program, officers emphasized education, passing out mostly warnings and distributing pamphlets that explain the laws in both English and Spanish to pedestrians as well as at labor pool centers and residential neighborhoods. As part of the education aspect, the department gave out backpacks with reflective tape on them and most recently installed free lights on residents bicycles, both designed to make them safer. The various changes have had a positive effect, Edmiston said. Im sure weve made a difference. Since this programs been in place, and weve made some changes along Missouri Avenue, he knocked on the wood table. No fatalities. Unfortunately, the city has identified another fatal corridor, farther south on the road, after it changes into Seminole Boulevard. In the 12600 to 12800 block, around the west entrance of Largo Mall, three people were killed in 2012 January, April and November. Two of the victims were killed during a lapse in funding, before the pedestrian safety program was renewed in April. All three of my victims were residents of these mobile home parks, Edmiston said. What they were doing is they were crossing the road mid-block. They werent using the light at Lark (Avenue) and they werent using the light at 126th (Avenue), which is provided with crosswalks. The crosswalk at Lark Avenue, an entrance into Largo Mall, has a traffic signal. But for a while, it has turned to flashing yellow and red lights at night, telling drivers to be cautious but not stopping them to give pedestrians a protected crossing. It hasnt been a problem for years because the development on the southwest corner was never developed. Its now a McDonalds 24-7 operation. So there is traffic volume there now, Edmiston said. The Lark Avenue intersection will have active red, yellow and green lights. Signs like those in the median of Missouri Avenue will be installed. Theres also no street lights in that area, decreasing the chance that drivers will see a resident that does cross. City staff is working with Progress Energy to install street-level lighting along that corridor. It could take six months to get it done, but were working on it, Edmiston said. We want to at least give the motorist the opportunity to perceive the hazard and perform some sort of evasive action. Without street lighting out there, theyre not visible and they never have that opportunity. The current round of funding will last about another four months, Edmiston said. The department is already in the processing of securing a fourth round. Obviously, were going to seek that so we can continue to make a difference, he said. Were always making changes to make things safer We will continue with enforcement as long as the funding allows us to do that.4A County Leader, January 10, 2013 ST. PETE, from page 1Aspending a year working with committees and the public to determine all the things they wanted to see for bicyclists and pedestrians. They expected the plan would be implemented over decades because of a lack of funds. Little did we know, however, that with a plan, we could apply for funds and get in front of the cube. So there were various funding categories at the time of federal funds that were available, Frederick said. The city started filing applications for funding with the Florida Department of Transportation. Being ahead of other local jurisdictions in planning, it received more than $30 million in funding over 10 years. City officials augmented that with capital dollars from the Penny for Pinellas and transportation impact fees. They set out to build certain miles of bicycle facilities and enhance a certain number of pedestrian crosswalks. We turned a 20to 30to 40-year master plan into a 10-year plan, Frederick said. Weve basically met all the requirements of the plan at this point. The city enhanced more than 100 crosswalks. By enhancement, I mean signs and markings as well as the rectangular rapid flashing beacons because we had virtually a zero percent motorist yielding compliance at our crosswalks, he said. No one knew the state law that said you had to yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk, he said. So we looked at it and said we are certainly not helping the motorists any by not giving them proper cues. We installed various thou shalt yield to pedestrian signs, state law. Also installed were yield bars and other improvements.Flashing beacons get attentionThe flashing crosswalk beacons, which alert motorists when a pedestrian is preparing to use the crosswalk, were installed at major intersections that had multiple crossing lanes. The visual impact of beams is like that of a police strobe, Frederick said. We are well over 85 percent compliance. Some in the 90 percent compliance. What that means, when a pedestrian comes up, pushes a button, at the start of the activation, 85 percent of the motorists will yield, he said. The countys Metropolitan Planning Organization praised the use of the beacons in an April 2011 newsletter, saying the success of the beacons have resulted in the expansion of these signals around the county. At first city officials learned that many pedestrians initially didnt push the button. But they began to see people pushing the buttons on Photo by TOM GERMONDMike Frederick says that many other jurisdictions are seeing the benefits of the rectangular rapid flashing beacons that St. Petersburg has installed at 42 intersections. the devices and beginning to get compliance from motorists. They discovered it does work so more and more people are starting to push it to the point that now we get calls all the time on a daily basis from residents that say when is my crosswalk going to get one? Frederick said. There is a downside. Some motorists dont think they have to stop unless there is a flashing beacon, which isnt true, Frederick said. In 2005 St. Petersburg became the first jurisdiction to experiment with the flashing beacons under federal permission. Based on our experimentation, evaluation and analysis, they have allowed it now to be implemented nationally, he said. Frederick believes use of the beacons will spread. The DOT, the county and other jurisdictions are now seeing the benefit of it and looking at places where they can find funding to get them in, Frederick said. Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kristen Carson said in talking to an agency traffic engineer, it appears that the flashing beacons are effective for pedestrian crossings. However, we do want to be a little bit careful that we dont put them everywhere. Because like any sign, if you have too much of something out there or any flashing device, were afraid it can kind of dilute the effect. But we do think right now they have a great effect for pedestrian crossings. The agency will look at all of the issues involving the use of the beacons, such as putting them at school crossings and maybe high-volume pedestrian crossings. Were going to kind of look at it and see whats the best use for all of them, she said. The cost of the beacons, $10,000 each, is an issue, too, she said. St. Petersburg was awarded the 2009 National Roadway Safety Award for the crosswalk beacon, called the Enhancer. The award is given biennially by the Federal Highway and Roadway Safety Foundation for making verifiable and significant strides toward improving safety on the nations highways. In 2008, St. Petersburg was named the Best Walking City in Florida and 35th in the nation by Prevention Magazine and the America Podiatric Medical Society.Looking ahead and tweakingCity officials are re-evaluating its bicycle and pedestrian master plan approved in 2003. Now our annual evaluation is looking at more detail. We got all these facilities for bikes and peds now and we are still having crashes. So how do we address that? We cant build anything more. We can tweak, said Frederick, who has been with the city for 12 years. Since there are no large infrastructure improvements planned soon, city officials started a corridor-bycorridor analysis, looking at cause and effects of crashes. Why is there a group of crashes here? What types of crashes are there? What behaviors is the bicyclist or pedestrian doing and what measures can we take to address those behaviors? We have already started on two of the corridors, 34th Street and Fourth Street, with whats called a road safety audit, and we have a draft report now on what counter measures can be implemented to address these specific hot spots, Frederick said. The solutions may vary. It could be as simple as a sign, Frederick said. Watch Watch Your Your Step StepLongtime Convention and Visitors Bureau office manager retires By BOB COSTIGANCLEARWATER After 30 years with the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, office Manager Sandy Galloway has decided to retire. Over the years, she has gained a wealth of knowledge, met many interesting people and has seen a number of changes in both the organization and the area. But Galloway has decided now is the time to relax and take things a little easier. Galloway notes that it was in the late 1970s that a group of business leaders including Don Seaton, owner of several hotels in Clearwater, and Wilson Hubbard of Johns Pass in Madeira Beach formed what is now known as the Convention and Visitors Bureau. At the time, 24 different communities in Pinellas County were all vying individually for tourist dollars. Those business leaders thought it would be more advantageous if all the communities joined together and formed a countywide organization to promote the area. The state had just passed a resort tax, and Pinellas County became one of the first to utilize that tax to fund the organization, known at the time as the Pinellas Suncoast Tourist Development Council. The councils offices were located at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and consisted of three people: a director, assistant director and a secretary. Galloway joined the organization when the council became known as Discover Florida Suncoast in 1981. She admits that at the time she was simply looking for a job and the thought of a threedecade-long career didnt enter her mind. From a small office of three, the department has made many changes to both its staff and location. Today, there are some 30 people working for the CVB, now located at the St. Petersburg College Epicenter in Clearwater. While there have been many changes over the years, their mission has remained the same: to promote travel and tourism to Pinellas County throughout the world. What may surprise some is that Galloway says she doesnt like to travel herself. From an early age, she has had motion sickness so she prefers to travel only short distances. However, Galloway recalls that when the staff was short-handed during her early days with the office, she filled in and traveled a lot to promote the area. She soon discovered it wasnt as glamorous as some may think. The novelty wears off after about two months, at least it did for me, she said. Im a homebody. I like getting off at five oclock, going home and fixing dinner and reading the newspaper. So why retire now? Galloway said that besides having worked there so long, over the years times have changed. Theres a new generation, a new world, new technology and things move so fast, she said. Im ready to hand the baton over to a future generation. I think they can handle it well. Galloway also said that shes still very healthy now and feels its time to enjoy some things that she hasnt had much time to do. One is to spend more time with her 10 grandchildren, all of whom live in the area. Another is to garden. She finds gardening and weeding relaxing and believes that growing your own food has benefits because it is healthier, organic and fresh. Executive Director D.T. Minich noted that Galloway has been with the organization since before it became part of Pinellas County government. Over the years they have come to rely on her as their office manager more and more. She has become invaluable to them. Her historical knowledge is unprecedented and it will be a huge loss to us, Minich said. Sandy GallowayHe added that while she will be sorely missed, the whole staff is excited for her and we all hope she enjoys her retirement.This article was submitted by Pinellas County Communications.Little Lucky LeprechaunLARGO Enjoy themed crafts, snacks and games at Little Lucky Leprechaun on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 11 a.m. to noon, at the Highland Recreation Complex, 400 Highland Ave. The cost is $5 in advance or $8 on the day of the event.

CALENDAR, from page 3A VOLUNTEERS, from page 1Abut I dont want to be caught in the middle, he said. We have a few people that go do it. Its not anything big. Supervisors let them go. And its over at lunchtime. Commissioner Michael Smith was the first to speak in favor of the policy. I have no problem with us continuing this, he said. I think this is a great opportunity to get out there with our kids and support them and let them know that we care about their education. Commissioner Robert Murray also supported the concept. You talk about running things like a business businesses throughout Pinellas County send employees to attend these kind of events, he said. Mayor Pat Gerard emphasized that she was in favor of the measure on a limited basis. I think the whole point is letting them see what it takes to run their city, and what kind of jobs might be available to them in the future, she said. Holmes argued that not only did the city have plenty of volunteers available within community groups and even its senior advisory board, but also had a plethora of groups that could use the help of volunteers. Where are you going to draw the line on this stuff? he questioned.

PETE BEACH Pinellas County sheriffs deputies began patrolling St. Pete Beach Jan. 6. Pinellas Countys southernmost beach city is now the 13th city to contract for law enforcement services with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. In November, St. Pete Beach voters gave city commissioners the go ahead for the contractual arrangement and transition from the city Police Department to the Sheriffs Office for primary law enforcement services. Deputies departed from the current Police Department Building, to begin their first shift in the new contract city. A total of 28 police department employees will transition to the Sheriffs Office. Twenty-one officers will be deputy sheriffs and seven civilian employees will have assignments with their new agency. The 21 former city officers will undergo a six-week training session to learn Sheriffs Office policies and procedures before taking their assignments in patrol operations, or court security.Detectives locate marijuana growop after responding to a firePALM HARBOR Pinellas sheriffs detectives located a marijuana grow-op in a Palm Harbor residence after responding to a reported fire at 3749 Appleton Court. According to investigators, the Palm Harbor Fire Department and sheriffs deputies responded to reports of smoke at the Palm Harbor home. The fire, which was quickly extinguished, was determined to be food cooking on the stove. Detectives said the homeowner, identified as 60-year-old Kerry S. Nichols had apparently fallen asleep while the food was cooking. No injuries were reported. Initially, fire department personnel suspected there might be a meth lab in the home; and the Haz-Mat Team was summoned to search the home. No meth lab was found. Investigators located a marijuana grow-op in a back room of the residence. About four plants and other grow-op equipment were located and seized. Nichols was arrested for cultivation and possession of marijuana and was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bond was set at $5,150.Teacher arrested in child pornography investigationDUNEDIN Detectives assigned to the Crimes Police beat Police beat Kerry Nichols See POLICE BEAT, page 6A

Just before 6 a.m. on Jan. 6, deputies responded to a call of a missing 16-month-old from the residence at 206 Lee St. Jeffrey ONeil, 28, and Jennifer Kovacs, 26, reported that the child, whom they were caring for had crawled out of the crib, opened the front door and had been missing for at least an hour. When deputies arrived on scene they found the couple to be under the influence of alcohol. While on scene, a note was discovered from a relative who advised they had picked up the child and taken her to their home because they could not wake ONeil and the child was crying. The child was placed with the relative. She was in good condition and was properly being taken care of. Deputies discovered the home to be in deplorable conditions with more than 100 animals in 88 cages. Deputies said the animals were being bred and sold without the proper licensing and conditions. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was called to the scene to conduct their investigation and remove the animals from the home. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were also notified. ONeil and Kovacs were transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Animals identified so far include seven Burmese pythons, 20 unknown types of snakes, seven monitor lizards, 100 bearded lizards, two scorpion spiders (dead), and about 100 rats, mice, birds, rabbits, Guinea pigs, squirrels, hamsters, gerbils and hedgehogs.

PETERSBURG Edward White Hospital recently was honored with an A Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The A score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety Score, the scores assigned to U.S. hospitals based on preventable medical errors, injuries accidents and infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nations leading experts on patient safety and is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families. This award is significant to us and provides evidence to the residents of Pinellas County that we are continuing our commitment to providing excellent patient safety in the care we extend to those in need, said Sharon Hayes, RN, in a press release. Hayes is chief executive officer of Edward White Hospital. To see Edward White Hospitals scores as they compare nationally and locally, visit www.hospital safetyscore.org.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Getting it right for our childrenPresident Obama has rightfully declared our first job as a nation is to care for our children and to give all of them a chance at a good life with happiness and purpose. As an educator for 36 years, I want to suggest a few ways the nation can help us reach this goal. The first thing we must do is to make sure every child in need has access to high-quality, prekindergarten education. Study after study shows the long-term benefits of early intervention, especially with our at-risk children. The first seven years of a childs life are the most formative of their character and future success. The president asked if we are meeting our obligations to all of our children. The current answer is NO, but we could fix this. We need to increase social work and behavioral and mental-health counseling services at our schools to help teachers, parents and students. Counselors are so overloaded at schools (usually one counselor for 400 students) that they scarcely have time to provide much more than academic advisement and testing coordination. Parents of highneeds children want a safe place to get help, and schools are the most logical place for this. We need to trust educators to do what is best for their students. We must end the current obsession of evaluating schools and teachers with standardized test scores, as if that is all that matters. We want teachers who are skilled, compassionate and willing to hide their children in a closet if thats what it takes to keep them safe. As a former public school principal, I can tell you that there are hundreds of reasons why standardized test scores often have little to do with the talents of the teacher or the quality of the school. Schools and teachers who take on the most challenging students are frequently the ones who look like they accomplished the least, when exactly the opposite is true. Standardized tests can be a good benchmark for progress, but there will never be a valid test that measures the most important things teachers and counselors do for our children. Lets begin treating principals like CEOs and allow them to lead their schools using their professional training to evaluate teachers in meaningful ways. Hold them accountable for results and let them do whats best for their students. We dont need to waste more time and money on developing standardized tests for every subject, especially elective classes. Hands-on, engaging learning can do more for a childs motivation, self-esteem and belongingness than anything else. Teaching our students the social and emotional skills of compassion, empathy and coping with lifes frustrations are just as important as honing their academic skills. We need to shift our policies and priorities toward valuing the talents and gifts of all children, giving them all that chance at happiness and purpose. As the president said, If we dont get that right, we dont get anything right.Roseanne Wood is president of Reform Works, Inc., and a retired principal of SAIL High School in Tallaha ssee, Fla. Florida VoicesLETTERSPedestrian awareness neededEditor: Your recent series Watch Your Step has caused me to call FDOT to inquire about the Transportation Improvement Program that was undertaken by the MPO in 2010, and which included a request by Belleair Bluffs to construct pedestrian crossings across West Bay Drive, west of Indian Rocks Road. Much to my surprise, I found that the program has been disbanded, and our request for pedestrian crossings is now in limbo. Needless to say, I am now contacting the MPO and the Pinellas County Commission to see if our request could be reinstated. As you state, Floridas pedestrian crash fatalities are worse than any other state except New Mexico, and Pinellas Countys statistics are higher than the average in Florida. And, as your column points out, County Commission Vice-Chair Karen Seel has recently indicated, this is an area that needs more attention moving forward. The proximity of the Belleair Bluffs/Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge, with its constant flux of health-minded walkers and the nearness of condominiums with their elderly grocery shoppers, make this area particularly vulnerable to pedestrian crashes. As usual, vehicle speed is a significant factor in these crashes, with failure to yield by pedestrians also a causal factor. Your series will serve to heighten everyones attention to the extreme need for pedestrian awareness, especially during this time of year. I am hopeful that our request for pedestrian crossings on West Bay Drive can be approved for construction in the near future. Jack Nazario Commissioner, city of Belleair BluffsReflective tape would protect pedestriansEditor: I was very interested in the recent coverage of protecting Pedestrians. As a safety specialist with the Air Force, and Hartford Insurance, I would like to make the following suggestion. I was driving back from Fort Lauderdale and it was dark when I drove through Indian Rocks beach. There were a lot of people walking on and off the road, normally in dark clothes, and almost invisible to drivers except there was one group that had a piece of reflective tape on his jacket. Bingo, I saw there was a group on and off the street. I think that beach communities should provide restaurants and hotels for our visitors (with a piece of sticky back reflective tape) to display the tape, when they are out at night. A piece of tape about 10 inches long, and 2 inches wide would do fine. I dont think that would cost that much. That would be a really great accident prevention tool. Tom Hafner, re commissioner Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District Belleair BeachHow much time is a life worth?Re: Pedestrian safety, by Suzette Porter, Jan. 4Editor: What is needed is a dedicated walk signal so there is no overlap between a walk signal and a green arrow. Drivers who have a green arrow consider people are jaywalking because they see the arrow and not the walk signal. The light duration is generally a long duration so a slight modification could easily be timed in. How much time is a life worth? And right turn on red is allowed only after a complete STOP and even when they stop at a crosswalk/stop sign they are through the crosswalk before they stop (see Highland/Nursery). Start ticketing people. Someone local should be sent to other cities to compare notes on safety and also public transportation, etc. Just a thought from a Boston transplant, where I felt safer when on foot or bike. Daniel Cronin ClearwaterTaking aim at the gun warsEditor: The anti gun people wind up contradicting their argument by leaving people helpless against an attacker. They need to switch a side of their argument if they want any chance of success. They need to allow a potential victim a means to defend himself or herself. They should push hard for legislation to allow ALL people to carry Mace anywhere they may go. Even teenagers could be qualified. There is a slang word for a gun; its called an Equalizer. Mace could fill the void between guns and helplessness and become the new Equalizer. Misuse or abuse of Mace? Better then death, and the victim lives to ID the abuser. Abuse would be minimal when the aggressor knows the tables could turn. The bottom line would be that gun sales would drop, Mace sales would skyrocket and deaths would diminish. Les Milewski Seminole The ups and downs of the spy gameIf I were young and just starting out, Id seriously consider applying for a position as a spy. Its plain that America needs as many well-trained spies as we can develop. With terrorists of various stripes plotting to blow us up, we must send in our spies to foil their plans. I recently searched the want ads in some newspapers and on Craigs List for Spies Wanted openings, but found none. I dont know of any colleges or technical schools that train spies. A next step might be to identify the agencies and companies who hire spies. However, I believe that spying is no longer an accepted term. What the big boys now talk about is intelligence and security. At last count, the federal government had about sixty intelligence-gathering outfits. Some spy on terrorist groups; others steal secrets from foreign governments, including our allies; many government agencies spy on you and me. Politicians in power dont trust the citizenry any more than we trust the politicians. The Central Intelligence Agency is a major employer of spies. So is the National Security Agency. Computer and pharmaceutical companies are famous for spying on each other, attempting to steal industrial secrets. A few years ago someone tried to organize a national convention for spies, but nobody was willing to attend, even though the featured speaker was billed as Nathan Fizrolvey, Famous Spy. To be successful a spy must remain unknown. He/she must also be a sneak. Ive often thought that unfaithful spouses would make excellent spies; theyre good at covering their tracks, and saying Who? Me? when accused of committing hanky-panky. The worst way to learn about the spy game is to watch TV spy programs. The most outrageous of these is MI-5, named for the topsecret British spy agency. The programs producers ask us to believe that the intelligence operation for the entire British Empire is carried out by about a dozen agents and six computers. Each week this small band of spooks manages to outwit evildoers just minutes before the bad guys try to blow up Parliament or the London subway system. What makes the plots even more unbelievable is that the MI-5 people are successful despite the fact that they dont really trust their colleagues. Thats because theres usually a mole somewhere in the waxworks swiping secrets to sell to Iran, Al Qaeda or the Vatican. Another flaw in most TV or movie spy stories is that the secret agents seldom meet in a dark alley where nobody can see them. Instead they usually hook up in a public park on the banks of the Thames, where any photographer or sniper within two miles can shoot them with a camera or a Barrett M98B bolt-action rifle. A successful spy must be adept at shadowing people, staying in the background so that they dont recognize him. Hulk Hogan and Sarah Palin would be no good as spies. High on the CIAs recruitment list are stalkers, those creepy people who hang around celebrities, hoping for a smile or an autograph. As Socrates once put it, Deep within every stalker is a spy yearning to get out. If a spys identity is discovered by his target, the secret agent is said to be burned. Spies have their own special vocabulary. If your mother-in-law suddenly starts to talk about bugs, dead drops and safehouses, she is probably a spy. If she demands that you give her the correct password before she admits you to her house, you can be sure of it. The best-known fictional spy is James Bond, also referred to as Agent 007. He is famous for ingratiating himself with beautiful women who work for international fiends. In real life, a spy has few female friends. Thats because sensible women seldom get the hots for a scruffy, non-descript man in a dirty trench coat who sits all day in a sidewalk caf reading newspapers and drinking cheap gin. Thats the life of the typical spy. The most frightening thing about spy work is that when the enemy catches you, you are a goner. Your own government denies knowing you. You have no friends to support you. Its exactly like being fired from your job here in America after years of faithful service. Jones, youve got an hour to clear out your desk, you useless insect! American intelligence agencies are notorious for not having courageous, Arabic-speaking, democracy-loving spies in their employ. If we had owned a few dozen such men and women stationed in the Mideast back in 2000 or so, wed have known better than to get involved in that quagmire. Our spies would have warned us, Stay out. Only death, destruction and hatred await you here! But would we have listened?Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Drivers SeatBob Driver Time to debate the death penaltyIt defies logic that taking life honors life. For the second year in a row, Florida has sent more convicted killers to death row than any other state. And acting Palm Beach County State Attorney Peter Antonacci would like to send more. His office is now seeking the death penalty for all first-degree murder cases. There were 22 new death penalty cases this year in Palm Beach County. You have a dead human being, Antonacci told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He said that by not seeking the death penalty, we have cheapened the value of human life. There are many ways we cheapen the value of human life. Sexism, racism, ageism, discrimination against gays, the disabled, atheists and others with different or no religious views are but a few examples. A political and economic system that allows millions to go without food, shelter and health care is another. As is a justice system that sanctions taxpayer-funded killings. Killing is no more just when the government does it than when an individual does. A life for a life is not justice. It is retribution. That is not the purpose of our legal system. Whats more, the death penalty does not deter people from killing, which proponents claim is its purpose. Our murder rate far exceeds that of many countries that have no death penalty.The United States, China, the Congo, Saudi Arabia and Iran account for 85 percent of the worlds death-penalty executions. Many would argue that this isnt the kind of human-rights company we want to be keeping. Our justice system makes mistakes. If for no other reason, death should not be a penalty for any crime. Not only does Florida lead the nation with 21 individuals sentenced to death this year, according to the Death Penalty Information Center, its also No. 1 for the number of death row inmates exonerated. Just last month, the 24th inmate since 1973 was set free. At his third trial, a jury found Seth Penalver, who had been sentenced to death in 2000 for killing three people, not guilty after a five-month trial. Three trials. Three results. The first resulted in a deadlock. If thats not enough evidence that our system is flawed, consider the case of Frank Lee Smith. Cancer set him free from Floridas death row after serving 14 years for a murder and rape he didnt commit. The Innocence Project cleared Smith with DNA evidence 11 months after he died. How many other innocent people have died behind bars? How many have we executed? We will never know. The lives of the innocent are the cost we pay for the lives of the guilty. Its not worth the price. When Gov. Rick Scott signed his first death warrant last year, he said implementing the death penalty is not an enjoyable process. It takes a toll on you. Its something you really need to think about, he said.Youve got to be very cautious about it. Ive prayed a lot about it. And its the law of the land. Actually, its the law in 33 states. Florida was the first state to reintroduce the death penalty after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down all death penalty laws in 1972. Laws are made to be changed. Florida can lead the way in another direction. Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasalinda, D-Tallahassee, filed a bill last year to abolish the death penalty. It died in committee but it doesnt have to be that way. Isnt it time that we at least had a debate? Life without parole is a sensible alternative to the death penalty, said Rehwinkel Vasalinda. It is much less expensive to keep a criminal in prison for life without parole than it is for the state to execute them. A sentence of life in prison without parole allows mistakes to be corrected or new evidence to come to light. That would increase faith and fairness in our justice system. So would a state that doesnt kill to punish killers.Rhonda Swan is an editorial writer for The Palm Beach Post and author of Dancing to the Rhythm of My Soul: A Sisters Guide for Transforming Madness into Gladness.

I want to expand on that idea a bit because we are fortunate to have a very large and active society locally. If you have read my bio at the end of this column, you know I am not unbiased about the Pinellas Genealogy Society (PGS), but with that admission, let me give you some details about the society and what it does, hoping you will find value in what it offers. And just as importantly, if there is another society or discussion group close to you, perhaps this discussion of the PGS will prompt you to connect with them. Nearly every genealogy society I know of has a name that tags it to a particular geographic place, such as Pinellas County, Florida, in the case of the PGS. At first blush one might think the name indicates that the focus of the societys activities are specific to that area alone. As logical as that thought may be, it is wrong in nearly every case. All societies generally have a universal (you can read that as international) focus. To be sure, societies publish genealogical information about their local area, such as cemetery interments, historic funeral home records, etc. That effort is what allows researchers to use the Internet to glean information about areas all over the world. The PGS in no different; it has an active corps of volunteers who transcribe and publish genealogical information relevant to Pinellas County. This information finds its way into books and the society website. But lets face it almost nobodys ancestors come from the area where one currently lives. That means that all societies have to have a broader and more universal focus to assist their members in their research. This is where the Pinellas Genealogy Society in its partnership with the Largo Public Library excels. For several years the society has been co-located with the Largo Public Library, and party to a relationship that benefits all genealogists. The library is the center for genealogy research in Pinellas County and the PGS is the largest genealogy society in the county, so this places the library and the society at the center of local genealogy activity. The library Genealogy Center houses not only its own research assets such as books, journals, and microfilm, but houses the societys research assets as well. In fact about one third of the collection in the Genealogy Center belongs to the society. The great thing for researchers is that this administrative distinction is transparent. All material is cataloged in the library system and seamlessly available to researchers. But the relationship does not stop there. The society provides genealogy education to all library patrons and visitors whether they are members of the society or not. The society considers this a serious responsibility, and one that it aggressively pursues. Typically it presents from 10 to 15 educational workshops and classes each month. Among topics offered are the basics such as Getting Started in Genealogy to more advanced subjects as Organizing Files, Documenting Sources, Finding Civil War Ancestors, Building Time Lines, and Publishing Your Family History. A list of up-coming classes is available in the Genealogy Center, in the regularly published library calendar of events, and can be found on the society website at www. rootsweb.com/~flpgs. Besides making research material available and providing education, the society supports the library in another important aspect: society members serve as genealogy consultants to help researchers find their family history. They suggest resources, help with computer use, and often get directly involved with challenging research problems. Guests are welcome at the society monthly meetings held every third Saturday in the Jenkins Room of the library at 11 a.m. The centerpiece of each meeting is a speaker who addresses a genealogy topic of broad interest. The meetings are preceded at 10 a.m. by one of our more popular educational events a free-flowing discussion addressing the use of computers in genealogy. Another activity you may be interested in is the annual seminar co-sponsored by PGS and Largo Public Library. It is an all-day event that takes place at the library Feb. 9. This year the seminar boasts an internationally known author and speaker, Sharon DeBartolo Carmack, a certified genealogist who has authored no less than 16 books, and among other credits is a contributing editor for Family Tree Magazine. The seminar also features a huge book sale, raffles, door prizes, continental breakfast, lunch, a total of seven presentations, and more. You can find more information about the event and a registration form on the society website or at the library Genealogy Center. As you can see, most of the services the society offers are free to the public. Membership is desired of course that is what supports all of those activities. But the society believes that if it focuses on its primary goal of promoting genealogy and assisting researchers, membership participation will follow. This is an ideal time to join the society if youre interested. Among other things, you will get discounts to several fee-based genealogy websites such as Fold3, access to a members-only webpage with helpful educational material, as well as the satisfaction of supporting all of the activities Ive outlined. I hope this introduction to the society and some of the many services it provides will prompt you to attend its classes, drop in at a monthly meeting, and perhaps even become a member. Remember, the success of your research can be greatly influenced by your association with a group like the Pinellas Genealogy Society.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972. He is past president of the Pinellas Genealogy Society.

Titled Farewell, FCAT Hello, Common Core: Floridas New Testing Strategy, the forum will be Wednesday, Jan. 23, 6-8 p.m., at the Seminole campus Conference Center, 9200 113th St. N. It is the third program in SPCs 2012-13 Village Square Series under its Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. Media co-sponsors are WUSF Public Media, WEDU, and the Tampa Bay Times. For 14 years, Floridas children have faced an academic challenge that caused stress for many and forced some to repeat a grade or be denied a high school diploma. FCAT also impacted the performance evaluations of their teachers and the career plans of their principals. The assessment test was created in the early 1990s out of concern for low achievement rates and a demand for accountability. Beginning in 1998, it evolved from a simple measure of student success to a blunt pass-fail instrument for students and a standard by which teachers are evaluated and schools labeled as failures. Many believe the FCAT has become a testing monster that dumbs down the learning process and turns teachers into robots. That animosity toward FCAT boiled over last May, when state educators were forced to lower the pass-fail standard because 73 percent of fourth-graders would have failed the reading test. That embarrassing gaffe has sparked a debate on the entire issue of student testing and teacher accountability. It has drawn the attention of Gov. Rick Scott, who has made education a top priority in the third year of his administration. Ironically, the FCAT furor comes to a head as Florida is in the process of instituting an entirely new system of testing one that will largely supplant FCAT in two years. The state has joined a coalition of 45 states that is developing a shared set of assessments in math and English known as the Common Core Standards. As the Common Core Standards are fully implemented in 2014-15, FCAT will be phased out except for science testing. A distinguished panel representing four stakeholder groups will delve into the impact of FCAT and the new Common Core Standards, as well as debate the broad issue of academic accountability. The panel will include: Michael A. Grego, superintendent, Pinellas County Schools Mindy Haas, president-elect, Florida PTA Jo Anne McCall, vice president, Florida Education Association Pam Stewart, chancellor of K-12, Florida Department of Education Doug Tuthill, president of Step Up for Students, a nonprofit provider of private school scholarships for low-income students. Reservations for the dinner event are required by Friday, Jan. 18. They can be made online at www.spcollege.edu/solutions, click on the Village Square link, or by mail: Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733.

Ten elementary schools and more than 6,000 students in Charlotte, N.C., and in Pinellas County, participated in the initiative to help incorporate and encourage healthier habits. The Walk with Walgreens School Challenge was designed to help encourage students and faculty to increase their physical activity and learn healthy habits. As part of the challenge, each school classroom was challenged with adding a minimum of 10 extra minutes of walking per day to the school day, outside of recess and physical education. Some examples of ways educators increased physical activity included walking school grounds for seed identification during science class and reciting multiplication facts while walking the gymnasium. We know that children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day, said Ginny Ehrlich, CEO of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, in a press release. Were proud to team up with Walgreens to offer more opportunities throughout the school day for kids to have fun while moving more. Its important these programs inspire lifelong healthy habits. Elementary students from the following schools participated in the program: Belcher Elementary Highland Lakes Elementary John M. Sexton Elementary Skycrest Elementary Curtis Fundamental Elementary
BriefsIt was one of those picture-perfect Florida winter days, but as it was sandwiched between winter days when boating is inadvisable, the clear blue sky, calm green seas and lively gray dolphins were even lovelier for the wait. Capt. John Heidemann and I were on the southern leg of our bottlenose dolphin survey route, which we monitor for the federal record, when we spied a dolphin dorsal fin way in the distance. It was the start of a dolphin observation that would contain all of the elements of good fieldwork, the way all the elements of a perfect vacation are part of a great holiday. Like a great holiday has lots of leisure, fieldwork requires lots of patience. These particular dolphins required even more than the usual amount of patience to approach and identify because they covered great distances of water between surfacing to breathe. Wed see a dorsal fin near a sea wall; the next view revealed that it had covered the distance of the length of one or sometimes two football fields. Holidays can be exasperating and the same goes for fieldwork. Nonetheless, Capt. Heidemann navigated with admirable aplomb over the many minutes it took us to eventually decide there were two dolphins there, female Slightwin and male PC, each searching independently for food. Hunting dolphins cover a lot of aquatic territory, but both Slightwin and PC are young adult dolphins. As such, theyre members of the fleetest bottlenose dolphin age class of all. Like a great holiday involves welcome but unexpected guests, fieldwork requires flexibility. Slightwin and PC changed course abruptly, which freeranging dolphins do both literally and figuratively. Suddenly their hunt was over. With splendid coordination they left their respective bays and surfaced next to each other, traveling spritely to a hidden cove some distance away. Just as there is always room for more snacking during the holidays, once in the hidden cove these young adult dolphins worked together to snare a few more fish snacks. At the height of their physical powers, it was nothing to sprint down the entire length of the hidden cove in one powerful surge. Then it was time to alternate feeding (the worlds oldest behavior) with the worlds other oldest behavior. Slightwin took the lead and commenced to put on one of the most alacritous displays of aerial behaviors weve seen to date. Dolphin aerial behaviors are any behaviors in which much of the dolphins body comes out of the water. Dolphins often do aerial behaviors when involved with activities that serve to perpetuate the species. Sometimes this is to avoid unattractive suitors, but sometimes it seems to serve to attract suitors attention. Today it seemed to me that Slightwin went airborne to attract PC, for she leapt repeatedly, put a great deal of spin on her leaps (again literally and figuratively) and most impressively landed near PC without striking him but also managed to slide back into the water moreOutdoors 11A Leader, January 10, 2013 DEC.-JAN.GOLFSPECIAL18 HOLES W/CART PER PERSONCHAMPIONSHIP PAR 71 PROSHOT GPS YARDAGECOUNTRY CLUB DR., LARGO2.5 Miles W. of U.S. 19 off 686581-3333Book Tee Times Online www.eastbaygolfclub.com 122712 Expires 1-13-13Weekdays$35 Before 1pmWeekends & Holidays$35 After 10am $40 Before 10am $28After 1pm 101112 Teja Karkare D.D.S.GENERAL & COSMETIC DENTISTRYHours: Monday-Friday 9-4pm 10700 Johnson Blvd., Suite 4, Seminole 393-1133Now Open in Seminole New Patients Welcome 10% Off First Visit Emergencies & Walk-Ins Welcome121312 Dr.s Todd Clarkson and Donald Collins remain committed to maintaining the standards and traditions of excellence their patients expect and deserve.our physicians and three Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners work out of 2 office locations.

Like you going dancing over Christmas, Slightwin became more animated with time, starting slowly with mere spyhops but becoming more energized until she was doing back flips with double twists. Her utter physical control was pure elegance in action. For his part, PC stayed in the water and accommodatingly swam over or next to her whenever she slid back into the brine. This went on for many minutes, save the moment when Slightwin buzzed a fish next to the boat like a dancer stopping to pop an hors doeuvres before springing back to the dance floor.

The event will take place Thursday, Jan. 17, 6:30 p.m., at Pinellas County Extension 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo. The public is invited to attend the event. The Florida Wildlife Corridor aims to protect and restore connected landscapes throughout the Florida Peninsula to create a viable corridor from the Everglades to Georgia. The corridor addresses the fragmentation of natural landscapes and watersheds from the Everglades ecosystem north. Contributing to the fragmentation problem is the disconnect between the perceptions of Floridians and the real need to keep natural systems connected. The goal of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition is to mend the perception gap through an education and awareness campaign demonstrating the connection between landscapes and watersheds. By showing Floridians the panthers, bears, native cultures, ranchlands and rivers and how they are all connected, the expedition members aim to garner public support to help make the Florida Wildlife Corridor a reality.African Violet Society to meetThe Tampa African Violet Society will meet Friday, Jan. 18, 10 a.m., at the Seffner-Mango Library Public Meeting Room, 410 N.

In March, four little heads popped up on the roof, and Mom E earned her name. Over about a week, Sue managed to catch each of the kittens as Mom E hissed and swatted at her, and gave them to Second Chance for Strays to find loving homes. Sue then caught Mom E to get her fixed. All was well until July, when she went missing for four days. She returned wide-eyed, thin and with a tilted head. Sue brought Mom E to the vet twice for shots and gave her antibiotics for two weeks, but no one could figure out what was wrong with her or how to fix it. Her head is still tilted, but Mom E has adapted to it. She has now adopted Sue as her human, who can now pick her up and give her kisses, and Mom E is definitely a part of the King family. Mom E makes Sue smile every day. As our pet photo winner, Mom E wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park.

The new year is a good time to take inventory of your heartworm and flea preventatives and if you have been regular on them. Florida has a high incidence of heartworm disease, intestinal parasites, and flea infestations. Is your pet up-to-date on advised vaccines and parasite checks? Have they had a dental exam lately? And the most obvious, do they have some holiday pounds to shed? Even if you do not have a flea problem, many pets have allergies to fleas. Fleas and ticks can transmit diseases, and they are simply not nice to have in the house. Therefore, even if you do not think you need it, I still advise flea prevention monthly for pets in Florida. If my pet has been off heartworm prevention, can I just restart it? All it takes is missing two consecutive months of preventative for a pet to be at risk for heartworm infection. Cats do not have to be tested to safely be put on preventative, but dogs do. Therefore, if you have a dog and have missed two or more months consecutively, we need to do a heartworm test before getting your pet back on a preventative. If you restart a heartworm product without testing and the dog is unknowingly heartworm positive, it can cause serious adverse reactions, and in some cases, even death. Heartworm preventatives also carry intestinal parasite prevention. They are not a treatment if your pet has a parasite, but the preventative does make it less likely for your pet to contract one. I dont see worms in my pets stool, so why does it need a fecal check? Though there are some parasites that are visible in stool, the majority are not. Only under a microscope can we find giardia, coccidia, hookworms, whipworms, etc. What most people dont realize is that heartworm preventatives also have some intestinal parasite prevention. They are not a treatment if your pet has a parasite, but the preventative does make it less likely for your pet to contract one. A fecal parasite check is advised annually for every pet, but especially those that have been off heartworm preventative because they are at a higher risk. Does my pet really need to come in every year? For most pets a routine vaccine schedule is recommended; However, a full exam every six to 12 months is advised, regardless of if in need of preventative vaccines or not. Even in those pets with medical conditions where vaccines are not advised, it is still important for us to evaluate your pet and discuss other forms of preventative care, such as lab work, dental care, etc. We try to tailor our vaccine protocol to each individual patient, and I would be more than happy to discuss it with you at the time of exam. I also advise annual, if not biannual, dental exams for every pet to help in early detection and treatment of dental disease. That bad breath does not have to be that way. Let us help you ring in a New Year with a healthy pet. Contact us to see if your pet is up to date on routine care, if you have questions about preventatives, if you would like your pet to have a dental exam, etc. We are at your service to try to keep your pet happy and healthy for as long as we can.

For more information, call Rick Serran at 6988903.Low tides should result in great fishingExtreme new moon tides later this week will all but empty the Intracoastal Waterway. Grass flats that are rarely exposed will be dry for much of the morning. This situation can provide some spectacular inshore fishing. So focus your efforts on small cuts on the very outer edges of the secondary grass flats, much like points and coves along a mangrove shoreline. These cuts provide some structure that will attract bait as well as the mullet schools that the redfish and gator trout shadow. Redfish can often be spotted tailing in these low tide conditions. Hopping out of the boat and quietly stalking them as they make their way onto the flat with the incoming tide is perhaps one of the most exciting and humbling ways to catch fish in our region. These often-spooky redfish can be caught on a variety of soft-plastic lures, especially the scented ones, and will even strike a top-water plug at times. Your best bet however for hooking up would have to be a live select shrimp. Use the smallest peg style float you can find as a strike indicator pegged a foot or so above your shrimp. This will allow you to track your shrimp so you can cast it well beyond the fish and draw it back to them. Top-water plugs have been extremely effective lately in the early morning hours. Theres plenty of big trout roaming the Intracoastal right now and a noisy top-water plug that can be casted well away from the boat is probably the best way to target them. Also, spoil islands in the northern part of the county are still holding good concentrations of trout. Target peak tidal movement for best action. Soft-plastic jigs in natural shrimp colors work well as does a free-lined select shrimp. If youre looking for a good shrimp alternative, try setting out a pinfish trap over shell bottom. Baited with frozen sardines on a full tide either incoming or outgoing, your trap should load up with small pinfish and grunts, both of which will work great for trout. Silver trout are schooled up along area beaches from Johns Pass north to Indian Shores. These areas have been holding plenty of silver trout. Drifting with the wind and tide while bouncing brightly colored soft-plastic jigs off the bottom is a great way to locate them. When its too rough to drift fish, use your bottom machine to help locate the trout. Typically the schools will hold near the bottom in 8 to 15 feet of water. Until next week, get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Diversions Things to do around Pinellas County Classieds Events MoviesLeader Section B January 10, 2013Visit www.TBNweekly.com LARGO His music has left its stamp on generations of artists and his impact on the American music scene has been profound. Iconic American folk and blues singer, songwriter, musician and recording artist Tom Rush will perform Friday, Jan. 11, 8 p.m., at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets start at $19.50. Call 587-6793 or visit www.largo arts.com. Rush has been touring steadily for decades, bringing that unmistakable voice and those superlative songs to devoted audiences across the country. In the 1960s, he helped shape the folk revival. Rush was virtually the first to record songs by then-unknowns such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. Rush released a series of early albums including Tom Rush at the Unicorn (1962), Got a Mind to Ramble (1963), Blues, Songs & Ballads (1963) and Tom Rush (1965). Emerging from the early s Boston/Cambridge folk scene as a folk-blues singer and guitarist, Rush helped link folk to rock with his 1966 Elektra album, Take a Little Walk with Me, which included a side of electric cover versions of songs by Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry, as well as his own first self-penned song, On the Road Again. His next album, 1968s The Circle Game, was singled out by Rolling Stone Magazine as the record that ushered in the singersongwriter era with its debut of songs by Mitchell, Browne and Taylor before they had released any albums themselves. The album also featured what has become Rushs best-known song, No Regrets. Subsequent albums for Elektra and Columbia became showcases for other deserving songs by the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Guy Clark, Eric Kaz and Richard Dean. Following The Circle Game, Rush released Tom Rush (1970), Wrong End of the Rainbow (1970), Merrimack County (1972) and Ladies Love Outlaws (1974).

As they settle in, they quickly find theyre not alone. But its not the house thats haunted, its Malcolms girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghost-busters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship ... or, more importantly, his sex life.Gangster SquadGenre: Drama Cast: Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Pea, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone and Sean Penn Director: Ruben Fleischer Rated: R Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and if he has his way every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians he has under his thumb. Its enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop ... except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John OMara (Josh Brolin) and Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohens world apart.Zero Dark ThirtyGenre: Action, drama and thriller Cast: Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler and Edgar Ramirez Director: Kathryn Bigelow Rated: R For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of directorproducer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal for the story of historys greatest manhunt for the worlds most dangerous man. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.FairhavenGenre: Drama Cast: Chris Messina, Rich Sommer, Sarah Paulson and Tom OBrien Director: Tom OBrien Not rated A former high school football star and one time college athlete, Jon has landed back in the place of his youth Fairhaven a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast. Now in his mid thirties, and with the promise of younger days seemingly washed ashore, Jons vague feelings of dissatisfaction are crystallized by a television interview with his football hero Tom Brady, who proclaims that, even after three super bowl wins, Theres got to be something more than this. Jon recounts his epiphany to Sam, old friend and schoolmate who married early, fathered early, divorced early and never left town. Sam made his own peace with small town life years ago, and is happy enough just to provide a stable home for his loving daughter, Cara, while secretly still pining for his beautiful exwife Kate. Together, Jon and Sam anticipate the return of Dave, the third member of their once-indomitable trio. Having left town seven years ago and never looking back, Dave is finally returning to Fairhaven on the occasion of his estranged fathers death. As tonic to Jons soulful self-inquiry and Sams stoic loneliness, Dave is determined to inject some heavy-duty, Vegas-style fun into the funeral weekend. But when old dreams and simmering resentments come to the beer and tequilasoaked surface of their reunion, not even Dave can fend off a healthy dose of reality.My Best EnemyGenre: Drama Cast: Moritz Bleibtreu and Georg Friedrich Director: Wolfgang Murnberger Not rated Vienna in the 1930s. Since his childhood, Victor Kaufmann (Moritz Bleibtreu), the son of wealthy Jewish gallery owners (Udo Samel and Marthe Keller), has been close friends with Rudi Smekal (Georg Friedrich). Victors girlfriend, the perky and attractive Lena (Ursula Strauss), rounds off the inseparable trio that vows to stick together come hell or high water. The Kaufmanns are shocked when Rudi shows up in an SS uniform after the annexation of Austria. The whole family is sent to a concentration camp, against Rudis will. Years later, the Nazi bosses in Berlin want to present Italys Duce with a confiscated Michelangelo sketch that belongs to the Kaufmanns. But the sketch is a forgery. They want the genuine Michelangelo! Rudi is ordered to get Victor out of the concentration camp and bring him to Berlin for interrogation. Their plane is shot down by partisans, however, and Victor doesnt have the heart to simply leave the injured Rudi behind. He drags him into a hut and offers to share his concentration camp clothing with him. One gets the pants, the other the jacket, and thus both have nothing to fear from the Polish soldiers. But while Rudi is putting on the prison camp jacket, Victor hears the alleged partisans speaking German. With great presence of mind, he quickly puts on Rudis uniform. When the German soldiers barge into the hut, Victor presents them with his prisoner, the wildly protesting Rudi. The Jewish prisoner becomes an SS man, and the Sturmbannfhrer the prison-camp inmate. A game with reversed roles. A game of life and death, in which Lena must decide on whose side shes on. Wolfgang Murnberger relates a captivating story of friendship, love and betrayal. Tragedy and humor are close together in this film, which takes on a special human depth through its nuanced and warmhearted character depiction.Struck by LightningGenre: Comedy Cast: Chris Colfer, Allison Janney, Polly Bergen, Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney, Sarah Hyland and Angela Kinsey Director: Brian Dannelly Not rated High school senior Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer) was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot. Demonstrating that life is what happens while youre busy planning your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, insightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson) and a home life that includes a mother (Allison Janney) whos more interested in the bottle than her sons future and an estranged father (Dermot Mulroney) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiance (Christina Hendricks).

Artwork is available for acquisition and the appearance is open to the public. RSVPs are requested. To RSVP, call 725-1808 or email email@example.com. A multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner, recipient of the Officer of the British Empire in the year 2000, which was bestowed upon her by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, Seymour has proven her talents in virtually all media, the Broadway stage, motion pictures and television. Her love of art and color has led to her great success as a painter in watercolors and oils and as a designer. Seymours past films include the James Bond movie Live and Let Die, the cult classic Somewhere in Time and the comedy smash Wedding Crashers. Her television credits include the Emmy Award winning performance in Onassis: The Richest Man in the World as Maria Callas, East of Eden for which she was awarded a Golden Globe, the mini-series War and Remembrance and her Golden Globe winning role as Dr. Quinn on Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman which ran for six seasons. In addition to acting, Seymour has written more than 10 books including Among Angels, Open Hearts, Making Yourself At Home, Remarkable Changes and This One N That One, a series of childrens books written with her husband James Keach which is now being made into an animated television series from their production company PCH Films. When she is not acting or writing, Seymour can be found in her painting studio. With a thriving career as an artist and her own art gallery in Los Angeles, she has exhibited in numerous galleries and venues across North America. Over the past 18 years she has created an intimate world of delicate watercolors, colorful vibrant oil paintings, pastels and bronze sculptures and has accepted select private commissions. She continues to reach new artistic levels by continually developing her technique, style and subject matter. For information about the exhibition and artist appearance, visit www.sydentelgalleries.com. reflect his broadening range. By the mid-s, the David Bromberg Big Band included horn players, a violinist and several multi-instrumentalists, including Bromberg himself. Bromberg released a dozen albums between the s and the s, including David Bromberg (1972), Demon in Disguise (1972), Wanted Dead or Alive (1974), Midnight on the Water (1975), How Latell Ya Play Til? (1976), Reckless Abandon (1977), Out of the Blues: The Best of David Bromberg (1977), Bandit in a Bathing Suit (1978), My Own House (1978), You Should See the Rest of the Band (1980), Long Way from Here (1987) and Sideman Serenade (1989). Despite jubilant, loose-limbed concerts and a string of acclaimed albums on the Fantasy label, Bromberg found himself exhausted by the logistics of the music business. I decided to change the direction of my life, he said in a press release promoting his new CD. Bromberg and his artist/musician wife, Nancy Josephson, moved from Northern California to Chicago, where he attended the Kenneth Warren School of Violin Making. Though he still toured periodically, the recordings slowed to a trickle and then stopped. Then, in 2002, the couple relocated to Wilmington, Del., where they became part of the citys artist-in-residence program. The musician established David Bromberg Fine Violins, a retail store and repair shop for high quality instruments. Frequent participation in the citys weekly jam sessions helped rekindle Brombergs desire to make music again, as did the enrelease a new album. There were a few live albums as welcome reminders of his relaxed, expressive baritone, skilled guitar-playing, droll humor and infallible taste in writing and choosing material but the recording artist simply chose not to release new studio material. Finally, in 2009, patient fans were rewarded when Rush released a new studio CD, What I Know, his first since 1974 and his debut for Appleseed. What I Know is a musical quilt of original and carefully selected compositions that fully deserve the Rush treatment. Rushs voice and phrasing are what make every song he sings his own. He writes or selects songs shorn of elaborate metaphors, choosing graceful, evocative, straightforward emotional settings. Then his warm baritone, tanned by experience, humor and melancholy, shines right through the lyrics, illuminating them from within. Produced in Nashville by longtime Cambridge friend and musician Jim Rooney and his subtle crew of country-folk musicians, What I Know contains five Rush originals, his arrangement of the traditional Casey Jones with guest vocalist Nanci Griffith and nine renditions of mostly unfamiliar songs that become instant friends. Rushs compositions range from toe-tappers to the wearily peaceful River Song (with Robin Batteau on violin). Tracks include Hot Tonight, with guest Bonnie Bramlett on harmony vocals, Silly Little Diddle, One Good Man and the exuberant title song. There also are gorgeously regretfilled songs such as Steven Brutons Too Many Memories, with Emmylou Harris on harmony, A.J. Swearingens Youre Not Here with Me, Jamaican singer Mishkas Lonely, the wonderfully tender What an Old Lover Knows, by Melanie Dyer and Kim Beard Day, and a velvety song of seduction Fall into the Night by Eliza Gilkyson. East of Eden, co-written by Jack Tempchin, doubles as a frustrated love song and a commentary on U.S. immigration policies. The best-known song covered is a reflective take on Mentor Williams Drift Away, a hit for Dobie Gray, Rod Stewart and uncountable others. Rush the man with the golden ear, the comforting voice, the supple guitar and the craftsmans pen has given fans a gift worth waiting for. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Rush as a major influence. RUSH, from page 1Bcouragement of fellow musicians such as Chris Hillman of The Byrds, Desert Rose Band and Flying Burrito Brothers; and bluegrass wizard Herb Pedersen. The jams also led to the formation of Angel Band, fronted by Nancy and two other female vocalists, with Bromberg serving as an accompanist. It was only a matter of time before Bromberg found himself back in the studio working on new material. With the 2007 release of Try Me One More Time from Appleseed Music, Bromberg continued his musical revitalization. The album earned him a Grammy nomination and the artist found himself playing shows on his own, backed by (and supporting) Angel Band, his own David Bromberg Quartet, and even reunions of the David Bromberg Big Band. In July 2011, Appleseed Music released Brombergs newest album, Use Me, which features collaborations with friends such as John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Los Lobos, Tim OBrien, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic, Dr. John, Keb Mo and Linda Ronstadt. Now, Rush is on the road again. Rush not only knows how to write, choose and sing a song he knows how to make an audience believe every word he sings, and how to make everywhere feel like home. Tampa Bay audiences will have an opportunity to see him perform at Largo Cultural Center Jan. 11. Photo by RICHARD LYONSLargo Cultural Center welcomes Tom Rush Jan. 11.
