TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners unanimously approved July 15 a maximum tax rate thats slightly less than last years rate. The rate to be published in the property appraisers Truth in Millage, or TRIM, notice mailed out to Largo residents will be 5.19 mills, or $5.19 per $1,000 in taxable property value. Commissioners could decide to further decrease the rate when they approve the final tax rate in September, but it cant be increased. The maximum tax rate for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1 is only a slight decrease from the current years rate of 5.22 mills. But city management analyst Allison Broihier explained that Largo might be one of the sole cities to decrease their tax rate. What we see most of the municipalities doing is leaving their millage rate the same, she said. Despite the increase in taxable value, none of the municipalities, at the time of publishing this document, proposed a decrease in millage rate. The property in Largo did not increase in value as much as those in the rest of the county, which averaged 6.7 percent, according to city documentation. By comparison, Largos overall properties increased by only 5.6 percent. However, property values decreased for five years, from the fiscal year that started in 2008 until 2013. Any increase, even the slight one last year, was encouraging, Assistant City Manager Henry Schubert explained. Over that seven-year period (since 2008), we still experienced an almost 29 percent reduction in taxable values, but at least at this point, were going in the right direction, he said. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO As of this week, Largos tree count is set to increase by 1,700 trees. Aspiring Eagle Scout Orion Leavy, 15, of St. Petersburg and Mildred Helms Elementary graduate Riley Browne, 11, of Largo have taken on separate projects with similar missions: planting hundreds of trees to beautify and add more green to Largos landscape. Orions objective is to organize enough volunteers to plant 700 trees at Largo Central Park Nature Preserve in one day, on Saturday, July 19. If theres enough manpower, hell add the shell path city officials have envisioned through the area populated by the new trees. Over the next year, Rileys goal is to distribute 1,000 trees for city residents to plant in their own yards, and help plant their new tree if they need assistance. Her project will kick off by planting 10 trees at her alma mater Friday, July 18. The trees for both projects will come from the citys tree fund, which businesses and developers pay into when trees are cut down for new construction projects. Parks supervisor Greg Brown said the city is always looking for volunteers to plant the new trees as his own staff has other duties and responsibilities. Even at a count like 1,700, there were plenty of trees to go around. There are absolutely (enough) tree funds, he said.Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAt left, Riley Browne, 11, of Largo is pictured at Mildred Helms Elementary School, where she will kick off a year-long project to distribute 1,000 trees to city residents. She will plant 10 trees at the school Friday, July 18. At right, for his Eagle Scout project, Orion Leavy, 15, of St. Petersburg will oversee a community planting of 700 trees at Largo Central Park Nature Preserve including the open space behi nd him on Saturday, July 19.A call for volunteersOrion is still recruiting volunteers to help plant trees for the event this Saturday, which hes organizing as his Eagle Scout service project. This is a lot. Hes going to need lots of help, Brown said. The tree planting will start at 9 a.m. at Largo Central Park Nature Preserve, 150 Highland Ave. Participants should bring shovels, gloves and sun protection. Refreshments and snacks will be provided. Orion and volunteers will be planting bald cypress, red maple, river birch, mulberry and sycamores in three sections at the front of the nature preserve. Initially, Orion hadnt thought he could plant quite so many trees so quickly. However, along with his fellow Boy Scouts, volunteers from Everest University, the Order of the Arrow Osceola Chapter, Pinellas County master gardeners, Walmart and the Friends of Largo Nature Parks are scheduled to participate. I hope I can lead everything well. Theres going to be several groups out here just spread out across the whole space, planting trees, he said as he surveyed the space July 11.

The damaged rig sank into the sea on April 22. Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency on April 30 for the counties of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay and Gulf. He amended the executive order May 3 to include Pinellas County, as well as Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson, Taylor, Dixie, Levy, Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, Hillsborough, Manatee and Sarasota counties. Crist cited the threat from oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform and well, and the need to prepare to protect natural resources, beaches and other coastal ecosystems. Pinellas County prepared for the worst, but fortunately, no oil ever reached local shores. The biggest impact was to tourism, as people canceled vacation plans, despite a concentrated effort to assure visitors that local beaches and waters offshore were unaffected. Now, BP is paying out billions of dollars. Pinellas County will receive a portion of that payout. The RESTORE Act, passed by Congress on June 29, 2012 and signed into law on July 6, 2012 by President Barack Obama, provides a vehicle for civil and administrative Clean Water Act penalties from the Deepwater Horizon disaster to be shared across the Gulf, according to information from the state Department of Environmental Protection. The acts formal name is the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourism Opportunities and Revived Economy Act of 2012. The Act calls for 80 percent of penalties collected to be allocated to five Gulf States in a variety of categories. In Florida, 23 Gulf coastal counties have access to two categories: 35 percent going directly to the counties and 30 percent going to a consortium of counties. A third category calls for 30 percent of the funds be used for projects of Gulf-wide significance, and will be allocated according to a ComprehensivePhoto courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSA flock of seabirds swoop over an area of Pinellas Countys coastline. Funding for RESTORE projects focuses on those that benefit the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem.

Tropical Storm Arthur quickly gained strength and the National Hurricane Center upgraded its status to a Category 1 hurricane on July 3. On Independence Day, the NHC reported that Arthur had become a Category 2 hurricane. Arthur made landfall on the Outer Banks of North Carolina July 4 with wind gusts of more than 100 mph.

4A Largo Leader, July 17, 2014 Plan developed by the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council. The consortium of counties, aka the Gulf Consortium, was created in October 2012 by Interlocal agreement among the states 23 Gulf Coast counties, from Escambia County in the western panhandle south to Monroe County. Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala serves as vice-chair.Ideas neededIn anticipation of receipt of funds through the Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund, Pinellas County is requesting ideas for projects within the county or its adjacent bay, coastal and Gulf waters that will benefit the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. The money will be used to restore the environment and economy of the Gulf Coast above and beyond the environmental and economic impacts associated with the oil spill, according to county staff. The amount of funding is still unknown but could be in the range of $1.5 to $2 million a year for 10 or more years. Ideas must address one or more of the five Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council goals and one or more RESTORE Act-eligible activities. Send ideas to RESTORE Act program director, Pinellas County Natural Resources, 22211 U.S. 19 N., Bldg. 10, Clearwater, FL 33765.RESTORE Act project goalsPinellas County Commissioners approved a plan May 20 submitted by a 16-member working group that includes goals, priorities and criteria for project selection and ranking. The group also is developing a multiyear implementation plan to be submitted to the U.S. Treasury. Commissioners adopted goals for the use of RESTORE Act funds. Projects and programs to implement the goals should provide and contribute to countywide and regional environmental and/or economic benefits. They should use a collaborative approach that emphasizes environmental stewardship and sustainable practices. Specifically, all projects must benefit the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem through one or more of the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Councils five goals: 1. Restore and conserve habitat 2. Restore water quality 3. Replenish and protect living coastal and marine resources 4. Enhance community resilience 5. Build and revitalize the Gulf economy Projects also may support or implement goals identified in the countys future land use and quality communities; natural resource conservation and management; coastal management; recreation, open space and culture; and economic elements of the comprehensive plan.RESTORE Act eligible activities1. Restoration or protection of natural resources, ecosystems, fisheries, marine wildlife habitat, beaches and coastal wetlands 2. Mitigation of damage to fish, wildlife and natural resources 3. Implementation of federally approved marine, coastal or comprehensive conservation management plan, including fisheries monitoring 4. Workforce development and job creation 5. Improvements to or on state parks in coastal areas affected by the oil spill 6. Infrastructure projects benefiting the economy or ecological resources, including port infrastructure 7. Coastal flood protection and related infrastructure 8. Promotion of Gulf Coast region tourism, including recreational fishing 9. Promotion of the consumption of seafood harvesting in the Gulf Coast regionPinellas RESTORE Act priorities Protect and restore native habitats Provide stormwater quality improvements Create policies, programs and mechanisms to remediate environmental or economic damages Protect against future environmental or economic vulnerability Provide climate change and sea level rise planning, adaptation and related community engagement Provide flood and storm protection to infrastructure and other publically owned assets that consider resilience and changing sea levels Implement or further actions in the countys post disaster redevelopment plan Diversify and improve the economy including tourism Promote sustainable recreation fishing and consumption of seafood dependent on Gulf ecosystem or protect or promote working waterfrontsProject selection and rankingThe commission also approved recommendations for project selection. Projects deemed eligible for funding will be ranked according to pre-determined criteria with scores assigned to each. Each of the criteria, as follows, has its own set of guidelines. Value of the project in meeting Restoration Councils goals Number of Restoration Councils goals clearly addressed Value of project in meeting RESTORE Act eligible activities Number of RESTORE Act eligible activities clearly addressed Value of project in meeting the countys RESTORE Act priorities Number of the countys priorities clearly addressed Ability to provide countywide and/or regional benefits Use of a collaborative approach incorporating partnerships Ability to strongly support and further the countys comprehensive plan element goal attainment Long-term project benefits Matching funding Ideas for projects must include identification of action items that can be completed within five years and a per project funding cap, if needed. The funding cap will depend on the amount of money received, the total funding requested and the preference of the county commission.Next stepsThe request for ideas and proposals from the public is expected to be a three-month process. Tentatively, staff will begin to rank projects on Oct. 14. Next, the county commission will be asked to approve the selected projects and ranks. By the beginning of 2015, if all goes according to plan, staff will submit a draft multiyear implementation plan for commission approval and solicit public opinion. Staff has set a tentative date in mid-March to receive final approval of the plan from the commission so it can be submitted to the U.S. Treasury.

A Category 1 hurricane has winds between 74 and 95 mph; Category 2, 96-110 mph; Category 3, 111-130 mph; Category 4, 131-155 mph; and a Category 5, the top of the list, has maximum sustained winds of 156 mph and up. However, despite that focus on wind speeds, the bigger risk really comes from storm surge, which occurs when water is pushed toward the shore by the force of hurricane-force winds. The greatest potential for loss of life related to a hurricane is from storm surge, according to retired NHC meteorologist Brian Jarvinen. At least 1,500 lives were lost during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 due to storm surge. Storm surge also causes extensive damage. Any structure not designed to withstand its force most likely would be destroyed, as bombardment from waves and currents cause foundations to weaken and fail. Storm surge also severely erodes beaches and coastal roadways. Residences and businesses located on Pinellas Countys barrier islands are the most vulnerable. But, inland areas are not immune from the effects. Salt water can intrude into estuaries and bayous. Animals, including snakes, often take refuge in urban areas to escape the rising waters. Many factors play a part in just how high the water could reach in any given location.Educating the publicPinellas Countys Emergency Management recently completed an 18-month grant program with installation of storm surge awareness signs at 38 locations near county schools and school-related facilities. The signs demonstrate the areas vulnerability and show how much surge could occur if a major hurricane were to hit. A major hurricane is a Category 3 or higher. Storm surge awareness signs have been placed near the following schools: Bayside High School, 14405 49th St. N., Clearwater Belcher Elementary School, 1156 Lakeview Road, Clearwater Clearwater Intermediate School, 1220 Palmetto St. Clearwater Frontier Elementary School, 6995 Hopedale Lane, Clearwater Cross Bayou Elementary School, 6886 102nd Ave. N, Pinellas Park Marjorie Rawlings Elementary School, 6505 68th St. N, Pinellas Park Nina Harris ESE School, 6000 70th Ave. N., Pinellas Park Pinellas Park Elementary School, 7520 52nd St. N., Pinellas Park Pinellas Park Middle School, 6940 70th Ave. N., Pinellas Park Pinellas Secondary School, 8570 66th St. N., Pinellas Park Skyview Elementary School, 8601 60th St. N., Pinellas Park Safety Harbor Elementary School, 535 Fifth Ave. N., Safety Harbor Bay Vista Fundamental School, 5900 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. S., St. Petersburg Lakewood Elementary School, 4151 Sixth St. S, St. Petersburg Lakewood High School, 1400 54th Ave. S., St. Petersburg Lynch Elementary School, 1901 71st Ave. N, St. Petersburg Meadowlawn Middle School, 6050 16th St. N., St. Petersburg North Shore Elementary School, 200 35th Ave. N.E., St. Petersburg Sawgrass Elementary School, 1815 77th Ave. N., St. Petersburg Shore Acres Elementary School, 1800 62nd Ave. N.E., St. Petersburg Osceola High School, 9751 98th St. N., Seminole Osceola Middle School, 9301 98th St. N., Seminole Starkey Elementary School, 9300 86th Ave., Seminole East Lake High School, 1300 Silver Eagle Drive, Tarpon Springs Sunset Hills Elementary School, 1347 Gulf Road, Tarpon Springs Tarpon Springs Elementary School, 555 E.

The map shows geographical areas where storm surge could occur along with how high above ground the water could reach. Areas are represented in different colors, with blue representing 3 feet above the ground at the low end and red, showing areas where the water could reach 9 feet above ground at the top.

STORM SURGE, from page 1A RESTORE, from page 1A TAX RATE, from page 1AOrion said he would recruit two other people to help him supervise the groups, to make sure theyre planting the trees correctly and in the right places. There isnt a firm count on how many volunteers have already committed to coming. You dont know until they all show up, said Orions mother, Tamara Leavy. Theyre hoping between 50 and 100, at least. Thats the goal. Along with new leadership skills, part of Orions own learning curve will include how to plant the different types of trees. So far, the project has been a lot of paperwork and communicating between parties, he said. Since its summer, its taking up a lot of my free time, Orion said. During the school year, Orion plays double bass in the Pinellas County Center for the Arts orchestra at Gibbs High School. Orchestra rehearsals and performances and Boy Scouts are the primary consumers of his free time, making the summer offseason for orchestra a good time to tackle his Eagle Scout project. Orion started as a Cub Scout in first grade and has been with Troop 340 almost since the beginning. His two younger brothers, Apollo and Kai, also are moving up the Scouting ranks behind him. Tamara Leavy said her own experience as a Girl Scout promoted her to involve her three sons in the equivalent organization. Orions troop is a good social outlet as well. Some of them are like brothers, Tamara said. They spend a lot of time outside of Scouts together also. If he has enough volunteers on Saturday, Orion hopes he can add another aspect to his Eagle Scout project. If we have time at the end, theyre going to start the shell walkway, he said. The walkway the city envisions will lead visitors from the parking lot, to the preserves butterfly garden, through the new trees and back.Nobel inspirationRileys inspiration for her project came after reading about environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai and her efforts to plant trees in Kenya. One of the suggested assignments in her fifth grade class that day was to write a letter to the mayor. Riley noted the quotation marks. I wrote what I was going to write, and then I walked up to my teacher and I said, I kind of want to write an actual letter to the mayor, Riley explained. Her teacher, Susan Russell, was happy to help her with the project, though she cautioned her that she might not get a response back. Riley decided that was OK. I have my mind set on organizing a Plant a Thousand Trees Day event, she wrote in a letter to Largo Mayor Pat Gerard, dated April 25. With your help, Id like to gather up volunteers throughout Largo to help get this accomplished. The mayor forwarded the letter to the parks division, and Brown contacted her. The city would provide the trees, he said, if Riley helped them find city residents who would plant them in their yards through a website. It is a model the city has successfully used to distribute trees in the past. On a website that Riley and her mother Angela Browne designed and put together, residents will be able to learn about the program and sign up for a tree, choosing from several different types. The trees will be ordered as requested and available for pickup on a date to be determined in January. Riley will schedule a second round of tree giveaways in July 2015, thus completing her goal of planting 1,000 trees in a year. Riley also has been charged with organizing a group of friends and family who will be available to help residents who are unable to plant the tree on their own. At the kickoff event Friday, July 18, 9 a.m., Riley and her family, along with representatives from the school, will plant 10 crape myrtles on the campus of Mildred Helms Elementary School. The mayor is scheduled to attend and meet Riley. I hope Im able to inspire other people, Riley said of her project. Check for updates on Rileys project at rileys 1000trees.wix.com/rileys1000trees. New construction and annexations only accounted for a small amount of the increase. That was set to change, given the citys recent push to catch up on pending annexations. Were anticipating that clearly those numbers will be higher next year when having this meeting, Schubert said. The tax rate proposed by city administration, 5.19 mills, is based on the rollback rate, plus a 5 percent overall property revenue increase. When weve been preparing the budget over the last couple of years, we have made assumptions that the property tax revenue would increase each year by 5 percent, Schubert explained. In some cases, that would be due to a rate increase enacted by the city commission. In other cases, most if not all of that would be made up by increase in values, new construction and annexations. The rollback rate is calculated to allow the city to pull the same amount of property tax revenue as it did in the prior year. Last years rollback rate actually ended up pulling in more revenue than anticipated when the final numbers were calculated. Therefore, given that revenue plus new properties gained through annexations or new construction, the final rate the city settled on allowing them to pull 5 percent more revenue was still slightly less than the current rate. The commissioners were supportive of the recommended rate. I like the idea of being the only city in the county thats going to reduce their tax rate this year, Mayor Pat Gerard said. For once. Yea. Schubert reminded the commissioners that property taxes make up only 28 percent of the revenue in the general fund, which supports administrative expenses, the police and fire departments, the library, most of the recreation budget and some of public works. Given decreases in other revenue sources, the general fund was only increasing its revenue by 2.5 percent, despite the 5 percent property revenue increase At the currently approved rate, the city will collect an estimated $817,000 in property tax revenue. Commissioner Robert Murray asked the staff why Largo had lagged behind in property value increases this year. We really dont have a good answer for that. Every community has a different mix of properties. And some properties go up differently in values, Schubert said. Murray also asked if the tax rate took into account city employee raises. Yes, the proposed assumes a 3 percent employee pay increase, Schubert said. The commission will approve the budget, along with the final tax rate, during two public hearings Thursday, Sept. 4 and Tuesday, Sept. 16. The commission will review the budget in detail during a work session scheduled for Friday, Aug. 8, 12:30 p.m. But Murray emphasized the importance of establishing enough revenue for the employee raises now. I think thats extremely important this year, Murray said. Theres a cost involved when theres new employees that come in. The budget is available for review at Largo City Hall or can be downloaded from the citys website at www.largo.com.

IBHS introduces Fortified Home program Photo by JIM McAVADDYA supermoon sets along the beaches the morning of July 12 over the Gulf of Mexico. A supermoon occurs when a full moon reaches its closest orbit to Earth. It looks the largest when it is closest to the horizon. Other supermoons will take place Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.SupermoonTAMPA The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety recently announced that it is launching a new program called Fortified Home Hurricane designed to help homeowners build safer, stronger new homes, and retrofit existing homes to make them more resistant to hurricanes. During the last few years, IBHS has conducted pilot projects using the new program in select areas, including Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, where it has been very well received. The program is now being launched in all coastal areas from Texas to Maine that are most vulnerable to hurricanes. We learned a great deal during the pilot phase. Homeowners want to have more resilient houses, but they need to be affordable and hazard-specific, which is what the new Fortified Home Hurricane program provides. We are launching the hurricane program now, which will be followed by a high wind and hail program focused on the Midwest and Great Plains states, said Julie Rochman, IBHS CEO and president. The Fortified Home program is affordable at every price point and uses a unique systems-based method for creating stronger, safer homes. Employing an incremental approach, the program has three levels of designation Bronze, Silver and Gold. Builders and contractors can work with homebuyers and homeowners to choose the desired level of protection that best suits their budgets and resilience goals. Homeowners insurance is a wonderful safety net that can help put houses back together following hurricanes, but there is much more that makes a house a home, and a family part of a community. Fortified Home Hurricane protects what is priceless like cherished family heirlooms that can never be replaced, and the peace of mind you have knowing that your home will still be there when the storm passes, Rochman said. People often ask why the Fortified Home program is necessary when many jurisdictions have building codes in place. The answer is codes appropriately provide minimum life safety protection designed to ensure people can get out of a building safely. Codes are not intended to ensure that the home is habitable after a catastrophic event or to protect the other property contained in the home, explained Rochman. The new Fortified Home Hurricane Program provides a uniform, voluntary, superior set of standards to help improve a homes resilience by adding system-specific upgrades to minimum code requirements. One of the most unique and important aspects of the program is that every Fortified Home is inspected by an independent, third party, certified evaluator before and after the upgrades are performed. Another key feature of this program is that it starts by focusing on the roof, which is the most important and most vulnerable component of every building. Your roof is your first line of defense against Mother Nature, so you want it to be as strong as possible, noted Rochman. The Fortified Home Hurricane program will: Reduce the potential for property damage to your home from hurricanes Protect physical assets such as the building itself and personal property like furniture, artwork, clothing and photographs Lower ownership costs Minimize your environmental footprint by limiting the amount of destroyed building materials that end up in landfills after a hurricane Safeguard investments you made to make your home more sustainable and energy efficient Increase the chances of quickly returning home after a hurricane and resuming daily life Increase the likelihood of staying in the community as it recovers and lower the overall cost of your communitys recovery. Studies show every $1 spent on disaster mitigation saves society $4 Improve the marketability of your home with a transferable FORTIFIED Home Hurricane designation. The Fortified Home Hurricane program enables homeowners to make informed decisions about maximizing their investment in disaster-resilience and achieve peace of mind knowing their home will be as strong as possible when hurricanes strike. Its not a matter of if another big hurricane will hit the U.S., just when and where, Rochman said.

On Sunday, July 13, the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline fell for the 16th consecutive day, according to AAAs weekly fuel brief. Since last week, the average price fell 4 cents to $3.62, the cheapest price since April. Oil settled at its lowest price in two months on the NYMEX as U.S. stockpiles increased last week and supply risks eased in Iraq and Libya. The price for a barrel of oil settled at $100.83 Friday, a $3.23 decline from a week ago. Oil prices hit a free-fall at the end of last week, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. As a result, motorists in the southeast could see prices at the pump fall 10 to 20 cents in the next two weeks. The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Florida is 3 cents cheaper than last week and the lowest since March 25. The average price on Sunday was $3.56 down from $3.59 last week. The average price in the Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater metro area was $3.48 down from $3.53 last week. A year ago, local motorists were paying $3.42. County briefsTreatment court serves veteransCLEARWATER Veterans charged with certain crimes due to substance abuse or mental health issues are encouraged to take advantage of a special court designed exclusively for them. Its called Veterans Treatment Court, or VTC, and it functions in Pinellas and Pasco counties. The aim of this special court is to help veterans deal with their current criminal charges and stop them from getting into further trouble. It also is designed to help with substance abuse or mental health issues that may have caused or contributed to their legal problems. Only veterans charged with misdemeanors and certain felonies, such as drug-related charges, burglary, grand theft, and battery, may qualify. Those interested should fill out an application available at the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorneys Office. Among the criteria considered by the state attorneys office are the victims point of view, the veterans criminal history and the veterans service record. The Veterans Treatment Court was established in the two counties with state funding provided in 2013, and had served 96 veterans through mid-June. Participating veterans are first evaluated. If appropriate, they are then treated for substance abuse, a mental illness, or both. Often, their families are brought in to help provide a support system. Among the community partners providing services for the initiative are the Veterans Administration; WestCare, a national nonprofit organization that focuses on treating mental illness and drug addictions; and Solutions Behavioral Healthcare Consultants, which also provides drug treatment services. Catholic Charities is also involved and has a program where well-adjusted veterans act as mentors, helping troubled ex-soldiers adjust to civilian life. The Pinellas County Ex-Offender Re-Entry Coalition, which helps participating veterans secure employment, also participates. And through its Veterans Law Institute, Stetson University College of Law provides free legal advice. The average age of the clients served thus far is 43, but veterans as young as 25 and as old as 73 have been provided help. Roughly half were in stable living arrangements, with the remainder either homeless or staying in transition housing or in other peoples homes.Hazardous waste program awardCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys Small Quantity Generator Program has been honored as the 2014 SQG Program of the Year by the Florida chapter of the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association. The SQG Program of the Year Award recognizes the most outstanding or most improved Small Quantity Generator program in Florida over the past year. The Pinellas County program focuses on education and outreach, visiting businesses to inform them of their hazardous waste management regulatory requirements and verifying that they comply. Team members also develop and provide tools and resources to assist businesses in meeting and maintaining compliance. Pinellas Countys program is the youngest of the 50 state programs. It is only in its sixth year of existence, compared to the typical 15 to 20 years that the others have been in place. Presentation of the SQG Program of the Year Award will take place at the North American Hazardous Materials Management Associations national workshop in Orlando next month.

Started in 1970, the annual Achievement Award Program is a noncompetitive awards program that recognizes innovative county government programs in 21 different categories. It is very rewarding to have our financial transparency initiative be recognized in the community, as well as nationally, said Ken Burke, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller. It was my goal to ultimately set an example of what constitutes open government and thanks to the talented staff of the Clerks office, this initiative is empowering citizens with every click of a button. Spending in the Sunshine is a financial transparency website which goes beyond state standards and actually surpasses the level of transparency many governmental offices offer. It is centered on the publics right to open government and was designed to provide easy access to expenditures processed within Pinellas County government. Information is available on the clerks webpage,www.mypinellasclerk.org, through a tab titled Spending in the Sunshine. For more information, visit www.naco.org.

Barber is the son of Kelly BarLARGO Twelve ROTC cadets from around the United States came to the National Forensic Science Technology Center in Largo for the sixth annual Biometric and Forensic Internship, two weeks of hands-on training provided to special operations and international forces. During the internship, the cadets will learn basic forensic training and get hands-on practice applying crime scene investigation techniques in the NFSTC training facility. The course includes instruction on improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, firearms, biologics, trace and computer forensics. We feel strongly that these cadets are receiving training that will improve their careers and actions in the theater, says Kevin Lothridge, CEO of NFSTC. The internship is an investment for us, but one that we are passionate about. This is our sixth year and we are very pleased to have the cadets with us again. The course is offered at no charge to the cadets, but costs approximately $50,000 to host. This is the first year sponsors have been brought on board to support the course. They include NFSTC board member Jim Cali, Celestar, Lynn Peavey, Ron Smith & Associates, Holiday Inn & Suites Harbourside, and the High Tech Crime Institute. The program is designed to test each cadets leadership abilities, personal responsibility and ability to adhere to mission objectives as well as give them a unique experience cadets would not receive in most college curricula or basic ROTC training. Biometric and forensic science is a capability that continues to grow in importance on todays battlefields and in special operations. The ability to properly collect and document evidence in hot zones and battle sites provides actionable intelligence and identification information that can make the difference for operators. Cadets in this years internship hail from several colleges, including Marquette University, University of Portland, Illinois State, Iowa State, University of North Dakota and Old Dominion.

Older people are more likely to have been exposed to Hepatitis C, but many older Americans are not aware that they need to be tested for it. A December 2013 report found that Hepatitis C infections are concentrated in the Baby Boomers generation (the report is available online at http://bit.ly/TTsXih). In another major study of people with the virus, 75 percent of the patients were born between 1945 and 1964.What is Hepatitis C?Hepatitis C is a contagious liver disease that results from infection with the Hepatitis C virus, which is spread primarily through contact with the blood of an infected person. Hepatitis C ranges in severity from a mild illness that lasts a few weeks (referred to as an acute infection) to a serious, lifelong illness that can destroy the liver (referred to as a chronic infection). Most people with Hepatitis C do not have any immediate symptoms. However, 75 to 85 percent of people who are infected eventually develop a chronic infection. Chronic Hepatitis C is a serious disease that can result in long-term health problems, including liver damage, liver failure, liver cancer, and even death. It is the leading cause of cirrhosis of the liver (liver scarring) and liver cancer and is the most common reason for liver transplants in the United States. Approximately 15,000 people die every year from Hepatitis C-related liver disease.What are the symptoms of chronic Hepatitis C?Most people with chronic Hepatitis C do not have any symptoms, and they may not have symptoms until years later when they develop liver problems. In people with no symptoms, Hepatitis C is often detected during routine blood tests to measure liver function. Infected people who do develop symptoms may experience the following: fatigue, joint pain, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fever, dark urine, light-colored stools, or yellowish eyes and skin (called jaundice).Can a person spread Hepatitis C without having symptoms?Yes. Most people who are infected with Hepatitis C do not know they are infected because they do not look or feel sick. An infected person with no symptoms can spread the virus to others. Any activity that exchanges blood between two people can put a person at risk for exposure. Before 1992, Hepatitis C was commonly spread through blood transfusions and organ transplants. Widespread screening of the U.S. blood supply for Hepatitis C began in 1992.Should I be tested for Hepatitis C?Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Preventive Services Task Force recommend screening for the Hepatitis C virus for people born between 1945 and 1964. Talk to your doctor about being tested for Hepatitis C if any of these apply to you: You were born between 1945 and 1964 You were treated for a blood clotting problem before 1987 You received a blood transfusion or organ transplant before July 1992 You are on long-term hemodialysis treatment You have abnormal liver tests or liver disease You work in health care or public safety and were exposed to blood through a needle stick or other sharp object injury You have HIV You engaged in sex that could have caused bleeding You are a current or former injection drug user, even if you injected only one time or many years agoCan Hepatitis C be treated successfully? Yes. In about 25 percent of people, an acute infection clears up on its own without treatment. However, if acute hepatitis C is diagnosed, treatment reduces the risk that it will become a chronic infection. There are several medications that treat chronic Hepatitis C, including new treatments that appear to be more effective and have fewer side effects than previous options. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) keeps a list of approved treatments online at www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ByAudience/ForPatientAdvocates/ucm151494.htm. However, treatment can be expensive. Clinical trials of new drug treatments may also be available.Hepatitis C and the Affordable Care Act Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, hundreds of thousands of people with Hepatitis C have new access to treatment. All insurance must provide free screening for Hepatitis C for anyone born between 1945 and 1964. People with Hepatitis C cannot be turned down for insurance or discriminated against by an insurance company. Limits on out-of-pocket costs will make expensive treatment more affordable.Ron Pollack is executive director of Families USA, a national nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans.

Comfort Keepers takes pride in our team consisting of a cohesive staff and one hundred plus caregivers working together toward the same goal of providing our community of seniors with the utmost care, enabling them to stay safe and happy in the comfort of their own homes. At Comfort Keepers our goal is to create a team of caregivers who have the heart, patience, dedication, loyalty and love for nurturing others. This sounds like a perfect mix of attributes and ones that do exist in so many people. Caregiving can be one of the most difficult yet rewarding careers. To some it comes naturally, especially if you are a nurturer by nature. For others it may be a calling they are somewhat unsure of but feel they wish to pursue. A key and valued portion of the interviewing process at Comfort Keepers is to learn the desire of the potential candidate to join the Comfort Keepers Team as a caregiver. We are a team centered on making a difference in each clients home in order to provide the very best of care and understanding of the individual needs. We create a Plan of Care specific to each person and do our utmost to match a caregiver with each client. Making a good match is highly important in building trust between caregiver and client. We do our best to match caregivers to clients in regards to personalities, while paying close attention to skills needed. Our caregivers participate in spring and fall in-services with many topics to choose from. We have several guest speakers who graciously give of their time to assist us in our training meetings. These training topics include caring for alzheimers/dementia clients, hospice awareness, falls risk prevention and transferring, senior nutrition and elder abuse. Our mission is to provide our caregivers with the knowledge most pertinent to caring for our seniors which in turn builds their confidence to offer the best possible care to our clients. Experience is not the #1 ingredient to being a good caregiver. It takes personality, empathy, reliability and most of all willingness to serve on both good and bad days. Quite often caregivers visit with me and share touching stories regarding their time spent with clients. It is quite touching to see in their eyes and hear in their voice that they are truly fulfilled in playing such an important role in the lives of others. We provide in-home care to all of Pinellas County, offering daytime, evenings, overnights and live-in services.

One of my friends and her daughter told us about a wonderful little pottery shop in Largo that they started going to and love. We decided to check it out and found it to be a fun place to go especially during the summer when the kids get bored and want to do something new. Its also a great place to go on rainy days! The place is called Get Creative Gallery at 13836 Walsingham Road in Largo. The shop has been around for a while, but Robin Smith is a new owner who purchased the place earlier this year. We have been going there for several weeks and my girls have painted some incredible pieces of pottery: a chimpanzee, a little jewelry box, a heron, horses, a bunny, flip flops and a few other things. The girls can sit there for hours painting. They get so involved in what they are doing. Just watching them take their time to paint is incredible to me. They are 8 and 9 now, so they are not rushing as much as they use to. Our friends who introduced us to the gallery help out there several days a week, so it makes it even more special for us to go there. The owner is so nice and very welcoming. You feel like you are right at home painting. Robin has another assistant who also helps out, and she is very sweet too. What I also like is that the pottery isnt that expensive to paint. For the amount of time that you are there and for the finished product, it really is reasonable. For those of you out there like me who are on a budget, this is really affordable. Something else that I found different about this shop and others is that you dont pay for the paints, just the ceramic piece you are painting. I have been to other galleries, and you pay for not only the product, but for the paints too. One of my friends told me her daughter painted a mug, and it was expensive after they paid for the mug and the paints. It is important for kids to be creative. At the gallery, my kids are having fun and enjoying the arts. What I like is that when the pieces are fired in the kiln they all end up looking pretty good. The kiln gives them a beautiful glaze. Sometimes my kids cant wait a day to have their piece go in the kiln, so they get it sprayed with a gloss, which also looks nice. This isnt a place just for kids; its for adults too. They have pottery that everyone can paint. They also do birthday parties, Moms Night Out parties and canvas painting parties. In my house, we are already thinking about Christmas in July. The girls are starting to make some of their Christmas gifts. What a treasure their gifts will be. Call the gallery, open Tuesday through Saturday, at 595-5122.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, July 17, 2014Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told MSNBCs Chris Matthews he thinks that Mitt Romney will run for president in 2016 and that he will be the next president of the United States. The former Massachusetts governor lost the GOP primary in 2008 and then the general election in 2012. What would his 2016 slogan be, the third times a charm? Former GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough urged fellow attendees at Romneys now annual GOP summit last month to join the draft movement. More than 50,000 have signed a Draft Mitt petition. Onetime Romney aide Emil Henry wrote The Case for Mitt Romney in 2016 in Politico. Only Romney, he argued, can roll into any major money center like New York, Los Angeles or Houston and mobilize his fundraisers on demand. I think Romney ran a solid campaign in 2012. Like 45 percent of respondents to a Quinnipiac poll, I believe that America would be better off today with Romney in the Oval Office. And I relish the debate in which Hillary Clinton and Romney find themselves agreeing ardently that a couple can own two mansions and still be dead broke. But if Romney is thinking of running in 2016 (and he says he is not), my advice would be to stay home or, more precisely, in one of his homes. Stay in the house with the elevator to the cars. Dont give New York Times columnist Gail Collins an excuse to resurrect Seamus, the family dog relegated to a crate on the roof of a vacation-bound family car in 1983. Republicans remember Romney fondly. If he keeps running, he risks turning into another Newt Gingrich, a Republican who doesnt know when to exit the stage. Insiders tell me that if Jeb Bush were not to get in the race, Romney would be the front-runner by default. There are two problems with that thinking. First, though Bush was a fine governor of Florida, he hasnt won a campaign since he was re-elected in 2002. Like Romney, who won an election in 2002, Bush represents the past. Second, party leaders and big donors may want to be kingmakers hence their rush to declare a front-runner but thats what voters are supposed to do. I confess that the 2012 primary was for me slow torture. It didnt help that once insiders declared Romney the front-runner, there followed an ugly slog to elevate the Republican who could beat him. I am in no hurry to repeat the freak show especially when there are so many interesting Republicans with gravitas. Think New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Rob Portman and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky may look in the mirror and hear Hail to the Chief. All Romney and his big money can do is chase strong rivals out of the race. When that happens, the party gets stuck with leftovers like Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain and the Newter candidates who just want to hog the spotlight, not build the party. For 2016, think Dr. Ben Carson. In the end, the contest didnt help Romney, either. Forced to move ever rightward, Romney shied away from his tenure as a competent, moderate Massachusetts governor. He cant go home again.Email Debra J. Saunders at email@example.com.The government, at all levels, squanders billions of dollars on questionable endeavors that leave many of us scratching our heads. Tax dollars are spent on such things as sidewalks along Floridas rural highways that are scarcely used and even overgrown in places with weeds while other more prioritized improvements receive little or no attention. An excellent example is the barricaded Friendship Trail Bridge between Pinellas County and Tampa that was so popular with cyclists, walkers, skaters and anglers. Part of the original Gandy Bridge, bureaucrats closed the trail due to salt water corrosion. Instead of seeking ways to pay for the necessary improvements to keep it viable, our esteemed public servants are instead groveling for cash to tear it down. More than 60,000 people each month used the popular conduit, but pencil pushers claimed that it would cost up to $40 million for the necessary repairs. Although originally designed for auto and truck traffic, it appears that some in government believe that all that human weight caused by junk food ingestion ... and that of skateboards and bicycles ... will cause the bridge to plummet into Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, millions of dollars are wasted to plant palm trees along Floridas interstates. Taxpayers, for example, footed the $270,000 landscaping bill for perennial ground cover and 65 Washington and date palms on I-275 near the Howard Frankland Bridge. Financed jointly by St. Petersburg and a Florida Department of Transportation highway beautification grant, the trees ... costing between $2,000 and $8,000 each ... have in some locations become eyesores due to poor maintenance. But the DOT claims the floras will still create a welcoming and enjoyable experience for Floridians and visitors. So would a rejuvenated Friendship Trail. The Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, or the Pinellas Trail, is another pricey endeavor that winds from Tarpon Springs to Gulfport. One elaborate pedestrian bridge at Park Street and Tyrone Boulevard in St. Petersburg soaked taxpayers millions of dollars. So steep are the slopes at either end that many people continue to use the street level sidewalk. The trail was built on the old Atlantic Coast and Seaboard Railroad tracks. Government officials also warn that it traverses through several high crime urban locations in Tarpon Springs and St. Petersburg. There are costly plans on the political drawing board to eventually link all of Floridas trails into one. Many of these improvements come from federal and state subsidizes. The thought process is that because the feds or the state is picking up the tab than its not costing local taxpayers a dime. Thats not quite accurate. Big bucks are absorbed to rename buildings and other sites after politicians. When Congressman C.W. Bill Young passed away they named the Bay Pines VA Medical Center after him at an untold cost to pay for all that new stationary, signage, etc. Now there are plans to identify Park Boulevard in Pinellas Park as the Congressman C.W. Bill Young Memorial Highway. He already is memorialized with a military installation, a dam and an industrial plaza. The money for these dubious undertakings still comes out of our collective pockets. Here are some of the more absurd projects that have been authorized by the feds: The U.S. Air Force spent $35 billion for aircraft such as the C-27J transport, only to fly them direct to the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base storage facility in Tucson, Arizona, where they scorch in the hot desert sun. Not to be outdone, the U.S. Army spent $300 million to build a massive blimp called the Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle to provide surveillance over Afghanistan battlefields. The project has been scrapped. Police departments received $82.5 million for Mine Resistant Ambush Protected tactical vehicles. Equipped with machine gun turrets, bulletproof glass, and armored siding, the High Springs, Florida cops, for example, are among those to receive these military-grade trucks. Then there is the $914,000 study by the National Endowment of the Humanities to explore why people like to read romance novels and watch movies of a sexual nature. (Isnt that called porn?) Or the $385,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to Yale University to study why the sexual organ of a male duck is shaped like a corkscrew. Huh? The National Institute for Health also handed out $335,500 to determine why women get angry with their husbands. I can answer that question at no cost to the taxpaying public. Its because we men do and say stupid things to anger our significant others. The government also spent roughly $10,000 in Michigan for talking urinal cakes. Thats those little round things we see in mens rest rooms. Just what do they say, anyway? Can all these billions of dollars in government waste be used for more meaningful projects? Sure, but then that would terminate pork barrel programs designed to make politicians look good at the expense of taxpayers. Poking fun at government spending would be hilarious if it were not so appalling.Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.We have entered the last half of the current year, and Im glad. Ive always liked the second six months of a year more than the first. Im not sure why, but I can guess. For one thing, the first half has too many holidays to keep track of. You begin with New Years Day and all that resolutions baloney, followed by Martin Luther King Jr., Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day, Good Friday, Easter, Presidents Day, Mothers and Fathers Day, Memorial Day and a few others not worth mentioning. Legal holidays are a valuable part of life. They force hard-working Americans to take a break from the rat race. But they also can be a pain. You need to make a bank deposit, but the bank is closed. Same way with the post office and the public library. And lets not forget the schools. When you shop on a holiday, the stores are filled with second-graders begging their parents for ice cream. Some holidays are automatic guilt trips. Should I send a Mothers Day card? On Good Friday, shall I attend my annual Mass or skip it? Even though Im not Irish, on St. Pattys Day I feel I should wear something green. Trouble is, I dont own anything green. One year I wore an orange shirt, and a guy named OMalley threatened to replace my nose with my shoulder blades. But in the second half of a year, holidays are less plentiful. The calendar is not so cluttered. Now that weve celebrated July 4th, we have clear sailing until Labor Day. After that theres Columbus Day, Halloween, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Several major Jewish holidays also occur in the years final months. But generally life seems more relaxed than January-June does. As the year winds down, so does major league baseball. In early September we can start pretending to care who might be in the World Series. That can be exciting. After weeks of divisional playoffs, two teams remain. They decide the final question, i.e., will the Series end before autumns first snowstorm shuts things down? The last four months of each year are filled with college and professional football. I never played football, but I like much of what goes with it the impressive skill and courage of the players, the mostly legal violence, the marching bands, the semi-nude cheerleaders being flipped skyward and usually caught by their colleagues on the ground. For some of us, the most suspenseful part of the game comes at the singing of our national anthem, when we wonder if it will be rendered with old-fashioned dignity, or (more likely) transformed into a rock, rap, soul, gospel or country western version. This year another large thrill will be the November election of 435 U.S. representatives and 33 U.S. senators. Here in Florida theres also a governors race, with GOP incumbent Rick Scott probably facing former governor Charlie Crist. Recent polls indicate that this contest, if held today, would be a tossup. One of the fascinations of following politics is the attempt by voters to identify the candidates who seem to be telling the truth, as opposed to those who are peddling the most preposterous bald-faced lies about their aims, beliefs and opponents. The sad fact about politics, in America and elsewhere, is that candidates simply have to lie if they hope to survive. Voters may say we want the truth, but usually we dont. Often, the truth is this: Things are a confused mess, and no one really knows how to make them better. Faced with this bleak reality, candidates must deliver sugar-coated promises along with dire warnings about what will happen if their opponents are elected. Honorable, truth-telling candidates do exist, but theyre rare. Another rarity this election year will be Democratic candidates who remain loyal to Barack Obama. Now that he is faced with an array of huge problems, foreign and domestic, many of Obamas erstwhile political allies are already beginning to jump overboard. As November approaches, political junkies can entertain themselves by playing a very tricky game: identifying Democratic candidates brave or foolhardy enough to say, The president is far from perfect but, dadgummit, Im going to stick with him! The second half of 2014 should be at least as interesting as the first.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The recent forced annexations (using old sewer contracts) by the city of Largo in the Long Branch Creek, Arbor Terrace and Brookstone subdivisions is an outrage. This land grab reminds me of the invasion of Poland by Germany in 1939. More exploitation and colonization of county neighborhoods by the big spending, tax hungry Largo City Commission. Using old forced annexation sewer hookup contracts is a shakedown and should be outlawed by the state Legislature immediately. No one in their right mind would want to join the city of Largo. The citys 16 percent taxes and franchise fees on electricity are extortion and would embarrass even an organized crime syndicate (county residents pay zero). The citys permit charges, license fees and sky high taxes are obscene. It is clearly time for the state legislature to investigate the city of Largo for extortion.

Price will oversee several services across the healthcare system, including logistics, nutrition and food service, police, prosthetics and sensory aids, and voluntary service. Price comes to Bay Pines with more than 15 years of federal government service. His most recent assignment was administrator for operations at the Orlando VA Medical Center. He started his career as a commissioned Medical Service Corps officer in the U.S. Army where he oversaw helicopter ambulance employment and operations for nearly 12 years. This experience included both domestic and international operations in the continental United States, Thailand, Germany, Kuwait and Iraq. In January 2009, Price left the military to pursue opportunities where he could continue to serve Veterans and their health care needs. He began his VA career at the Orlando VA Medical Center where he served as the administrative officer for radiology and later administrative officer for medicine prior to his most recent assignment. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of a team nationally recognized for health care quality, delivery and safety, said Price. As a veteran, and someone committed to the health and well-being of the brave men and women we serve, my goal is to build on the successes this organization has achieved and do my part to strengthen our world class healthcare system. The Bay Pines VAHCS is one of the nations leading VA healthcare systems, employing more than 3,800 medical professionals and support staff dedicated to providing the very best care to veterans residing in southwest Florida. The organization is the fourth busiest VA health care system in the country in terms of patients served and is accredited by The Joint Commission, Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and several other nationally recognized accrediting organizations.

Jessica Spencer Former St. Pete restaurant opens at Johns Pass By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH A former anchor restaurant in downtown St. Petersburg has opened under a new name at Johns Pass Village. Scott and Thorn Vogel, the owners of the former Caf Alma, are opening Alma on the second floor at 111 Boardwalk Place. Alma will feature a VIP private dining room with seating for up to 50 guests and dining accommodations for up to 300. In addition to bringing the restaurants core tapas menu to Johns Pass, Alma also will feature locally caught day boat fish, Seminole Pride Angus Beef, Florida wild caught catfish and shrimp and other seasonal, local fare. Scott Vogel said he hopes to attract both tourists and local diners who go to the Salt Rock Grill in Indian Shores and Loews Don CeSar Hotel in St. Pete Beach. The new restaurant will occupy the entire second floor of the building, which also features some residential units on the third floor. The move marks the first downtown St. Petersburg dining establishment to expand operations in the Johns Pass tourist district. After 12 years of successful operation at 260 First Ave. S., Caf Alma served its final diners on June 29. The move became necessary when the restaurants rental property was sold a year ago and the new owner expressed an interest in doubling the rent. In March, David Kramer of Pridgen Realty brokered a sale of the Johns Pass Village building to Boardwalk Place LLC of Clearwater for $1.675 million. The deal included a long-term lease with the Vogel brothers and another commercial lease with Yogurt City, making the building 100 percent tenant occupied. When we first began serving diners in downtown St. Petersburg, there were only 30 other restaurants in the area, said Scott Vogel, president of Alma. Today, there are more than 100 restaurants in the downtown entertainment district. David Kramer opened our eyes to the massive business potential Johns Pass has to offer. Alma will join other dining establishments at Johns Pass, such as Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Hooters, the Friendly Fisherman Seafood Restaurant and Hubs Oyster Bar and Tavern.

He will always be remembered for his kindness, gentleness, patience and love of life. Chuck was a true gentleman. He was born in Allentown, Pa. to Charles and Yolanda Nagy. He met his wife, Jan, when she was 14, married her at age 17, and they had been together ever since. Charles enjoyed nature, his pets, shing, hunting, landscaping, and creating new building designs. In Pennsylvania, he planted thousands of pine seedlings which are now beautiful forests. He excelled at landscaping; one of his pleasures was discussing various new ideas and inventions with his scientist Uncle Victor. Charles was very creative and enjoyed implementing his designs in remodeling various buildings in his own business and his home. He loved his family; his wife, Jan, sons, Charles III and John, and his grandchildren, Shayla and Victor. Charles was a soft-spoken, stronghearted man who held respect for all people. He never boasted of his many accomplishments, but rather encouraged others to speak of theirs. When his wife was a professional model, he encouraged her to start her own state-licensed modeling school and agency. He single-handedly remodeled a beautiful 3-story school for the business, which they ran together for 20 years. He worked behind the scenes and Jan always referred to him as her every other heartbeat! They traveled the world together, his favorite places being Lucerne and Kauai.

If interested, please call: Largo High graduate named MVP in All-Star gameLARGO Rick May, a 2008 graduate of Largo High School, was named MVP of a recent Pecos League All-Star game as the third baseman on the Trinidad Triggers, based in Colorado. During the June 30 game in Santa Fe, New Mexico, May went 2-for-3 with six RBI, including a grand slam. Mays current batting average is .355. He has 76 hits and 55 RBI so far this season. The Pecos League is an independent professional baseball league, which operates in cities in desert mountain regions throughout New Mexico, Southeastern Arizona, West Texas and Southern Colorado. Pecos teams play in cities that do not have Major or Minor League Baseball teams and is not affiliated with either. It was formed in August 2010. Players are 25 years and younger. The league season runs from May 15 to July 27. For more information about May and the team, visit www.trinidadtriggers.com. Rick MayCircuit judge finishes first ironman raceCLEARWATER Sixth Judicial Circuit Judge Cynthia Newton fulfilled a dream when she braved choppy waters and gusty winds to complete her very first Ironman competition in Coeur dAlene, Idaho, July 1. It took 15 hours and 52 minutes, but Newton swam 2.4 miles in Lake Coeur dAlene in waters that were both rough and cold before she bicycled 112 miles and then ran 26.2 miles through a beautiful stretch of the Pacific Northwest. The course was brutal, but the crowd support on the run was amazing, Newton said. The whole city was out cheering into the dark hours of the race. It was so painful to get through that marathon, but at mile 25, you feel an adrenaline rush that lasts all night long. Newtons goal was to finish an Ironman competition and thus win the Ironman designation on what is considered a very difficult course for first timers. She enjoyed it so much, she plans to complete the Coeur dAlene competition next year, too. The judge would have liked to have qualified for the 2014 Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, which takes place on Oct. 11, but she didnt place first. The only other way to qualify for the world championship is to complete 12 full Ironman races without skipping a full calendar year. That seems her only realistic possibility, and it would take her several years unless, of course, I get much faster, she said. I plan to work on becoming a better marathon runner, as this was only my third one, Newton said. It just takes a long time to adapt to this distance, and a very big commitment to the sport. Previously, the judge completed Ironman Florida 70.3, which is considered a half Ironman. Her time was 5:58:14. As a result, she was ranked 67th in her age group (45-49) in the U.S., and 141st in the world.Photos courtesy of SIXTH JUDICIAL COURTAt left, Sixth Judicial Circuit Judge Cynthia Newton crosses the finish line in the Ironman Coeur dAlene July 1 in Idaho, with a time of 15 hours and 52 minutes. Above, Newton bikes 112 miles as part of the race. For 80 of those miles, there are no turns. CLEARWATER The Rays Baseball Foundation awarded the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County, Inc. with a $5,000 Community Fund Grant. The grant supports toe coalitions School Readiness childcare scholarship program. The coalition is one of 20 local nonprofit organizations to receive a grant, totaling $100,000 from the Rays Baseball Foundation Community Grant Fund Program. The Rays Baseball Foundation supports many deserving nonprofit organizations throughout the Tampa Bay area, and we are honored to be selected as a grant recipient once again, said Lindsay Carson, Early Learning Coalition CEO. The School Readiness scholarship program pays a portion of childrens childcare cost for economically disadvantaged families, helping parents to maintain employment, attend school and ultimately become economically self-sufficient in an effort to break the poverty cycle. The $5,000 contribution supports the coalitions annual match funding requirement. The federal government contributes $16 for each dollar donated. In return, the Rays Foundations donation will be multiplied to $80,000 and provide about 20 children with annual childcare scholarships in Pinellas County. This partnership with the Rays highlights the importance of early education in our community. These funds will allow us to spread our dollars further and ensure more children have the opportunity have quality early learning experiences, Carson said. Early Learning Coalition gets grant from Tampa Bay RaysGrouper and snapper top the list this weekComing off a pretty good week weather wise, despite dodging the occasional thunderstorm, it was really nice to get back out offshore a few miles. Speaking of rain, these pop-up storms that occur this time of year are no-joke. Theyre a fact of life and if you want to get outdoors at all this time of year youre going to have to deal with them. Just make sure you give them plenty of respect. Shallow water gag grouper and mangrove snapper fishing has been pretty good over the last several days. Working ledges in 35 to 45 feet of water weve been able to get both species from the same spots. Mangrove snapper fishing has really bounced back after the freeze year and can be found schooled up on almost any ledge, especially during full moon periods. Scaled sardines, a favorite bait for snapper, are loaded up all along the beaches right now. These smallish baits may not be big enough to use for snook and redfish but work excellent for snapper, just be sure to use a quarter inch mesh sized cast-net. Otherwise youll have a Christmas tree on your hands. The process has been fairly simple. Drop a chum block down to the bottom directly after anchoring. Then begin breaking the pilchards up and dropping them over the side in constant flow. You should see the snapper rise to the surface within a few minutes. Then free-line your bait back with the others. Its important to keep the flow of bait going but not to much to over feed them. Once the snapper bite slows, theres a pretty good chance youll have some grouper around the chum block. Drop down live pinfish and grass grunts on heavy tackle. The fish should be fired up and wont refuse an 80-pound leader. Its much better than potentially breaking a fish off and losing your bite. Gag grouper limit is two per person per day for the gulf waters and the mangrove snapper limit is five per person per day in state waters and 10 per person per day in federal waters (beyond 9 miles).Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

But, Pinellas County Parks and Conservation Resources reminds beachgoers to be aware of rip currents. According to the United States Lifesaving Association, rip currents are the leading surf hazard for beachgoers and can occur at any beach with breaking waves. The association says swimmers should avoid areas that show signs of rip currents, which include a channel of churning, choppy water, an area with a notable water color difference, a break in the wave pattern and a line of foam, seaweed or debris moving steadily out to sea. Swimming at a lifeguard-monitored beach is the best way to stay safe, said Katherine Cleary, aquatics supervisor with Pinellas County. When conditions indicate rip currents may occur, we put up warning flags or in some If unable to reach shore, draw attention and yell for help. For more information on Pinellas County beaches, visit www.pinellascounty.org/park/be aches.htm. For additional information about rip currents, visit www.usla.org. Graphic courtesy of NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICEIf caught in a rip tide, do not fight the current. Swim parallel with the shore until out of the current. Then swim to shore.cases close beaches to swimming altogether. County lifeguards are on duty 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (unless otherwise posted) daily from March to September at the countys Fort De Soto, Fred Howard and Sand Key parks.

Eight OClock Theatre has saved something truly special for the final production of its 2013-14 season. Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical runs through July 20 at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 a.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50 for adults and $12.50 for students. A city of Largo handling charge of $3.50 will be added to each ticket. This performance contains strong language, adult content and nudity and is recommended for mature audiences. For tickets, call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. Hair the musical that changed all musicals encapsulates 1960s counterculture, from flower power to the antiwar movement. When it opened on Broadway in 1968, it was a lightning rod for controversy mainly because of its use of profanity, its attitude toward recreational drug use, its progressive views on sexuality and the nude scene which appears at the end of the first act. Nearly 50 years later, the hullabaloo over the shows unconventional content has longsince subsided but that doesnt make the decision to stage the musical less daring. In fact, the production is true to the original, without cuts to accommodate easily-offended. With book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot, Hair is a landmark in many regards. It featured a racially integrated cast. It repeatedly broke the fourth wall with cast members interacting with the audience. It defined an entire new genre the rock musical and blazed a trail for shows such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Dreamgirls and Rent. Hair is, of course, not just about hair long beautiful hair, shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen, etc. Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair focuses on a Photos by PICTURE THIS OF PALMA CEIAThe cast of Hair performs on stage at Largo Cultural Center. The show runs through July 20. group of hippies rebelling against the establishment, fighting conscription into the Vietnam War and distancing themselves from their parents expectations. Berger, the waggish free spirit who serves as the chieftain of the Tribe, leads the group in its bohemian lifestyle. His friend Claude, however, finds the decision to resist the draft more difficult. The plot is sparse and the material is dated. And yet, this production of Hair is so ably staged and so perfectly populated with a fervent, impassioned cast that it proves the granddaddy of all rock musicals can still be just as audacious, just as provocative and just as engaging as ever. Michael Newton-Brown directs Eight OClock Theatres Hair. This gorgeous music helped to change a nation, Newton-Brown writes in his notes from the director. Its antiwar message demanded to be heard around the world. The songs are classics. Newton-Brown talks about the building feeling among many people in American in the 1960s against the status quo. the Eisenhower conservatism and the outdated value system of the 1950s were no long working, Newton-Brown explains. James Rado and Gerome Ragni wanted a rock-and-roll show to spread the excitementWhile other members of the Tribe promptly burn their draft cards to protest the Vietnam War, Claude, left, played by Scott Hamilton, finds himself struggling with the decision while his friend Berger, right, played by Daniel Hayes, chides him for his hesitancy in Eight OClock Theatres production of Hair.

They hooked up with Canadian composer Galt MacDermont and Hair was born. Newton-Brown and his cast manage to capture the urgency and immediacy of the 1960s peace movement. This production is not one of those lamentable nostalgia-inducing retro-jaunts, staged wholly as an homage to a bygone era while excruciatingly trying to conform to the current mores. While theres nothing particularly preachy about Hair, its messages about the environment, war and sex still resonate today. Scott Hamilton stars as Claude, the troubled young man struggling to balance his pacifist predisposition with a sense of obligatory duty. Hamiltons performance is vibrant and impeccably nuanced, rendering a compelling portrait of a character waging an internal battle with his life at stake. Daniel Hayes delivers a swaggering, bombastic Berger. Hayes endears himself to the audience early on in the first act when he drops his pants to reveal a loincloth and he moons the audience a few numbers later. His singing voice is one of the strongest in the cast and his acting skills are equally superb. Speaking of marvelous singing voices, the vocally spectacular Sabrina Hamilton opens the show with the evocative anthem Aquarius and it is an amazing performance. Hamilton is similarly splendid singing the duet What a Piece of Work Is Man with Miguel Corteo. Alex Cheine portrays Woof, a kind of impish cherub with a chronic crush on Mick Jagger. He invigorates numbers such as Sodomy, Aint Got No and Dont Put It Down. There are plenty of other solid performances from the gifted ensemble, such as Brianna Larson as Jeanie, Erica Goldman as Shelia, Maurqise McGill as Hud and Niashia Aviles as Crissy. Newton-Browns creative direction is complemented perfectly by the imaginative choreography of James Grenelle. Grenelle always manages to add another visual dimension to Eight OClock Theatres musicals. Here, his choreography is energetic, exciting and in numbers such as Walking in Space surprisingly sensual. Tom Hansens wonderful set design brings the rockin orchestra led by Philip King on stage. Those unfamiliar with the show will still recognize some of the music, from the show-opening Aquarius and the titular Hair to Easy to Be Hard and The Flesh Failures (Let the Sunshine In). Taken as a period piece, the show is enthralling and expressive. The ensemble cast is so convincing that it seems as if the director may have enlisted true bohemians, possibly plucked from the picnic benches scattered around Largo Central Park just outside the venues doors. Eight OClock Theatres production of Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is more vivid than any flashback, boasting themes as pertinent as ever and music that has remains fresh and entertaining. REVIEW, from page 1B Photo by PICTURE THIS OF PALMA CEIAJeanie, center, played by Brianna Larson, leads members of the Tribe in a musical number in Eight OClock Theatres production of Hair.
