TORRESLARGO Since launching the expanded curbside recycling program six months ago, the city of Largo has reduced the amount of trash it delivers to the landfill by 887 tons, or 1,774,200 pounds. That amounts to $159,525 in disposal fee savings, said recycling coordinator Marissa Segundo during a commission work session Aug. 12. Weve very happy with the participation rate. It has exceeded our expectations, she said. Using new radio frequency identification technology embedded into the new recycling carts, the city is able to determine that about 45 percent of residents who have the blue recycling carts are using them on a weekly basis. About 73 percent leave the cart at the curb at least monthly while 89 percent have taken advantage of the new program at least once since its start. The city will reach out to the remaining 11 percent, but Public Works Director Brian Usher said at least some of that could be attributed to seasonal residents. Segundo said the city had expected the expanded program to give an initial jump in recycling participation before leveling off at a lower level, especially during the summer. But there hasnt been a drop in recycling yet. Luckily, weve seen a very consistent participation, Segundo said. The amount of recycled material collected between February and June this year has increased 59 percent as compared to last year. We love it. Everybody loves it, said Pat Gerard, voicing the sentiments echoed by commissioners. Along with collecting more recyclable Administrator job offered to Woodard New Bardmoor YMCA opens By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO At 5 a.m. Aug. 11, the new 36,000-square-foot Bardmoor YMCA opened its doors to members. The new building, at 8495 Bryan Dairy Road, is triple the size of the space it occupied at the nearby Baycare Outpatient Center Hospital, a space that it has long outgrown, said David Jezek, CEO of the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg. Its neat to see it come to fruition after youve worked so hard to pull it all together, he said. We want to deepen our impact on the lives of those that we serve and expand our footprint. The Bardmoor branch has been servicing the Largo community south of Ulmerton Road for 14 years. The new beautiful facility will allow the YMCA to serve up to 14,000 people from the community, Jezek said. Its more than just the building. Its the people in the building and our ability to build community within, he said. Along with a full gymnasium, group exercise room, dedicated cycling room, outdoor sports field and a cafe, the new building includes the first YMCA early learning preschool center in Pinellas County. The school will serve up to 120 children ages 2 to 5. Because of the unique location being in a business district, we think it really will serve a need for those in the surrounding area, Jezek said. The state-of-the-art preschool will accommodate generations to come. The full-day preschool completes YMCAs vision to become a one-stop-shop for all generations from children to grandparents to exercise and play in their own way, said BethTech Data adds to corporate headquarters in Largo By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The Tech Data employees gathered in the international-flag-decked cafeteria were as much a part of celebration as the company leaders who heralded the new 45,000-square-foot expansion during the ribbon-cutting ceremony Aug. 8. We are prompted Joe Quaglia, president of the company in the Americas. Tech Data! the employees shouted back. About 1,700 people work out of Tech Datas corporate headquarters at 16202 Bay Vista Drive in Largo. But the company employs about 10,000 people across 100 countries, working in 7 million square feet of property. Still, the new building was a visible investment and commitment to the Tampa Bay area, said CEO Robert Dutkowsky. We started here 40 years ago. Our roots are here; our culture is here. Our value is built around Tampa Bay, he said after the ceremony. As weve grown around the world, weve always centered back to Tampa Bay. As Tech Data grew, its leaders could have relocated headquarters to a city known for its tech companies. Then wed be competing with other companies that look and feel like us. But here, were kind of unique in the ecosystem of Tampa Bay, Dutkowsky said. Photos by JULIANA A.

TORRESJeff Howells, Tech Data chief financial officer, addresses the employees gathered to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the expansion of Tech Datas international headquarters in Largo. The new building gives the company room to grow as the IT industry changes, he added. Tech Data cant predict how emerging technologies will dramatically change the industry. But we know it will be different. We know it will be dynamic. One of the last things a Fortune 100 company wants to have is: we cant grow because we dont have the space, Dutkowsky said. Tech Data stays on top of the industry by investing in the best IT systems for its own internal processes, By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners agreed unanimously Aug. 5 to take the interim off the title of County Administrator Mark Woodard. Commissioners authorized Chair Karen Seel to negotiate a contract, schedule a meet and greet with the community, as well as a conversation with Woodard to talk about the countys strategic direction. Woodard thanked the commission, but reaffirmed that he prefers to work without a contract and does not want any benefits not offered to other employees. I am humbled by your kind words and confidence, Woodard said, before promising to come to work every day as I have for the last 26 years and to work hard to do all we can to serve the public. The commission was scheduled to review applications submitted to Human Resources for the new position. Instead, the consensus was to hire Woodard. Commissioners unanimously approved a compensation agreement with Woodard during its May 6 meeting. Woodard replaced Robert LaSala who was terminated April 15. Woodard was formerly an assistant county administrator and LaSalas chief of staff. Commissioner Susan Latvala voiced her support for Woodard during a July 15 meeting, but the commission decided to wait until the end of the application period, July 31, to discuss the matter. Forty-six applications were received. She said Aug. 5 that none of the applicants was as qualified as Woodard in part due to his indepth knowledge of the county. Theres a value in that, she said. Ive known Mark for 16 years, Seel said. But as second in command, you cant show your leadership skills.

The female, Gwen, who was found with a permanently damaged wing by one of the Friends, became a surrogate mother to 10 baby hawks the Friend also was caring for. Nine of the baby hawks were eventually released back into the wild. However, one male born partially blind bonded with Gwen and will remain in the parks care. Because of their injuries, neither Gwen, nor the young male could survive in the wild. The Friends of the Largo Nature Parks invite Largo residents to help name the new male hawk.

4A Largo Leader, August 14, 2014 ADMINISTRATOR, from page 1Asince Woodard had been appointed interim administrator he had shown his style of leadership and connection with employees. Seel compared Woodards commitment to public service to that enjoyed by the county under the leadership of former administrator Fred Marquis. Latvala praised Woodard for his ability to communicate with commissioners and his ability to provide information on anything. I have two words to describe Mark Woodard total professional, said Commissioner John Morroni. Commissioner Charlie Justice said he supported the decision to offer the job to Woodard, but was concerned about the process. He said some of those who had applied were quality applicants. Commissioner Norm Roche agreed with Justice and pointed out that time and money was spent on a search. Latvala said the commission wasnt aware of Woodards abilities and skills until he started doing the job. She agreed that some of the applicants seemed very qualified. I didnt know we had such a capable man under our own roof, she said. She said the last few months had shown that Woodard was the best qualified for the job. Commissioner Janet Long praised Woodard for changing the culture in Pinellas County. Theres no strong history of promoting from within, she said. She said in the past when top management positions needed to be filled, the first thought was to look outside. This is a breath of fresh air, she said. Woodard began his career with the county in June 1988 as a senior financial management analyst before moving into the position of director of the Office of Management and Budget and then the assistant county administrator and chief of staff. I will work to set the standard for public performance in America, Woodard said. TECH DATA, from page 1A Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, Tech Data employees, from left, senior account manager Leanne Moore and senior finance analysts Ryan Brusko and Paul Calez, were among the first to have their desks set up in the new building. Top left, Ben Godwin, senior vice president of real estate and corporate services, shows off a boardroom complete with a marble conference table in the new Tech Data building, the construction of which he oversaw. Bottom left, the new office space features plenty of windows to let in light and cubicles that have outlets above the desk. The desks are designed to be 24 inches deep on all sides, the maximum reach of a typical employee.Dutkowsky said. On a daily basis, the company sells about $100 million in products from PCs to main frames, color TVs and cellphones, printer cartridges to complex software. Its average order is less than $2,000. Think of the amount of information that flies around inside this company every single day, and we do that with the most powerful computer systems that we can find, Dutkowsky said. The new addition was designed to accommodate a modern work environment, incorporating details like optimized WiFi, desks exactly 24 inches deep the length of an average persons reach and outlets built into the cubicles above the desktop itself. The thoughtfulness and the work environment is really important, Dutkowsky said. This is a better answer for our people to make them as productive as possible. A covered walkway into the new building seamlessly links it to the Tech Data cafeteria and protects employees from volatile Florida weather as they meet with their colleagues in different parts of the campus. We worked hard to make it tie in properly so you can transition from the old building to the brand new building and you dont really know it, said Ben Goodwin, senior vice president of real estate and corporate services. The design allows for the cafeteria and atrium to continue to be well utilized, he said. Green space right outside the walkway, equipped with powerful fans, tables and plenty of shade, provides a comfortable space for employees out of doors. Goodwin has been a full-time employee with Tech Data for 17 years, but has worked with the company even before that, when he owned his own real estate and construction company. Hes built tons of warehouses and offices for Tech Data. The new corporate addition is his proudest accomplishment, he said. Quaglia thanked Godwin, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Howells and the entire facility team for the work they put into the new building. I want to thank you for creating such a beautiful addition to our campus and also a pathway to our future, he said. Officials broke ground on the new building in January. Quaglia jokingly commented that, given how long it took to complete his addition on his own home, he had his doubts that the addition would get done so quickly. I dont know how you did it in six months, he said. But you guys pulled it off. Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, the facade of the new Bardmoor Y at 8495 Bryan Dairy Road. At right, one of the new classrooms of the Ys preschool program includes a colorful reading circle. Below right, the new Y has a room dedicated to cycling. YMCA, from page 1AMaday, executive director of the Bardmoor branch. Everyone can gather, and weve created spaces for them to have some family time or for friends to sit, she said. Its not just a gym. Were so much more. Even before construction was completed, YMCA members were coming in to see the new facility for themselves. Their delight and awe was the most fun for me, Maday said. People have health goals. They have social goals. They have places they want to volunteer. And to see them look at this and go, Wow, I can picture myself here, its really exciting, she said. The new building will allow the Y to expand its diabetes prevention program as well as the LIVESTRONG program, which has helped more than 100 cancer patients regain their health. The current LIVESTRONG participants are excited to hold their graduation in the new facility in October, Maday said. The new YMCA was designed to accommodate its surrounding community. Given the demand for cycling, a whole room in the facility will house stationary bikes. Group exercise classes will take place on a suspended floor that will have less impact on joints. The facility has three private family changing rooms with their own showers, for parents who dont want to send small children to the locker rooms alone. The Tropical Smoothie cafe is next to the Kid Zone, where parents can drop children off to be supervised while they work. Jezek said he anticipated partnerships with the surrounding businesses in the area, perhaps including incentive programs to encourage employees to exercise or basketball pick-up games between different companies. The group exercise schedule is designed to accommodate exercise on lunch shifts for all shift workers in the area, Maday said. Even the construction partners for the facility Ed Taylor Construction, Harrod Properties and Elevation Architecture understood the vision and the impact the new building would have on the community, taking care in the craftsmanship of their work, Jezek said. Whats really been encouraging is their attention to detail, he said. They see the reason were here. The project was a unique one for general contractors Ed Taylor Construction. Project superintendent Ed Minter said he was very hands-on in the project, working directly with Maday to fine tune different details. From the footings up, right to handing her the keys, he said. The YMCA leased the space in the 12,000-square-foot space in the outpatient center. We will own this. Were here long term. This is a long term commitment of our organization, Jezek said. The preschool will open enrollment as soon as the new playground is constructed, hopefully within the next two weeks, said Ashley Fogel, preschool academy director. The same company that constructed equipment at Largo Central Park will build the playground. Thats all were waiting on, Fogel said. Were really excited. The wide hallway between the large and colorful classrooms is separated from the gym side of the facility by double doors that will remain locked unless the children are using the gym facilities. Each of the classrooms are about 850 square feet and are equipped with a Smart Board and plenty of space to play. The preschool will offer extended hours Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. A lot of kids are here in the care of us more often than home, so this place is really a good, large area for them to be super involved in a lot of stuff, Fogel said. Its a good preschool program. The parents of the preschool children will become part of the Y family immediately, Maday said. Often, a YMCA is second only to a familys own home and perhaps their church. Their wellness is here, their childcare is here. It just becomes part of their whole routine, she said. It becomes a place they spend a lot of time. The facility first broke ground in January. Amidst several months of construction and preparing the new facility, it can seem like youre just moving equipment and paper, said Maday. But were not. Were moving people, she said.

This allows solid waste manager Michael Gordon to monitor the trucks, coaching drivers to more efficient routes and helping to protect them from unfounded resident complaints. The GPS tracking has gone over surprisingly well, Gordon said. We worked with the union; we made no secret of what we were doing, he said. The new system has capacity for growth, whether that be in collecting a new material or adding more homes, Usher said. Staff is currently working on extending the program to commercial customers, Segundo said. But even now, businesses could start collecting glass, plastic containers Nos. 1 through 7, paper cartons and metal food cans in bins the city picks up, she said. City staff did ask residents to keep plastic bags out of their recycling bins. If the plastic bags are tied up and filled, even with premium recyclable material like shredded paper, the mixed use recycling facility will throw the bags away rather than process them. Such contaminated material like plastic bags and Styrofoam reduces the revenue the city receives from the facility. But overall, the city was pleased that Largo residents have collected mostly clean recyclable material, Usher said. We have not seen numbers like this in the surrounding communities, he said.During the meeting Aug. 12, commissioners also gave final approval of 70 voluntary annexations. The 120 parcels representing 34.9 acres of land and $32,515 in estimated city property taxes marked the second batch of pending annexations commissioners asked city staff to finalize.Fires destroy two mobile homes, claim one life By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo firefighters responded to two mobile home fires within two days, one of which claimed the life of a 91-year-old woman. Joan Neault lived in Unit 39 of the Bel-Aire Mobile Village, at 11300 124th Ave. N. in Largo. Two neighbors called in the fire in her home at around 11:15 a.m. Aug. 11. Both Seminole and Largo Fire Rescue units responded and found the home already engulfed in flames and smoke, said Assistant Chief Doug Swartz. The fire was burning faster and hotter due to materials inside, Swartz said. Winds also made the task difficult. Firefighters were able to contain and subdue the fire quickly, but Neault did not survive. Crews had to knock down part of the structure to get inside. Homes on either side were not damaged, which was surprising for as hot as the fire was, Swartz said. The state fire marshal and Largo police are investigating the cause of the fire and the death, but nothing appears suspicious, according to a press release. Firefighters battled a similar fire in a mobile home on 217 Lark Drive SW. Aug. 10. Calls came in at around 12:20 p.m. (There was) quite a bit of fire involvement by the time we got involved, Swartz said. A family member confirmed that the residents two dogs died in the fire, said Steven Hirschfield of IONTB. Despite their physical proximity, the cause of both fires has not been ruled suspicious. Were not seeing a big correlation between them, Swartz said. Firefighters continue to advise residents to keep working smoke detectors in their home and plan for safe evacuation should there be a fire. Above, Largo firefighters subdue the final flames at 217 Lark Drive SW. Aug. 10. Below, the woman killed in the Aug. 11 fire at 11300 124th Ave. N. was identified as Joan Neault, 91. The state fire marshal and Largo police are investigating her death.

In a report issued Aug. 8, the FWC confirmed that no bloom levels of red tide have been detected alongshore or inshore. However, two samples collected inshore of Sarasota and Manatee counties contained background concentrations of Florida red tide, also known by the scientific name karenia brevis. A patchy bloom up to 60 miles wide and 90 miles long was visible in satellite images from the Optical Oceanography Laboratory. The bloom is located at least 20 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties. The surface bloom shows little movement, according to the latest forecast by the Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tides. Red tide in bottom waters is moving slowly to the east-southeast. Experts say the bloom should remain offshore for the next few days. The FWC is scheduled to release another report Aug. 15. Residents can call 1-866-300-9399 for the latest conditions. Florida Red tide is common to the Gulf of Mexico. A red tide bloom occurs whenever there is a higherthan-normal concentration. Red tide produces a brevetoxin that can kill fish, birds and marine mammals; cause health problems for humans; and adversely affect local economies, according to the information from the Florida Wildlife Research Institute. Thousands of fish have died during this current bloom, according to the FWC. Among the dead and moribund benthic reef fish are various snapper and grouper species, hogfish, grunts, crabs, flounder, bull sharks, lionfish, baitfish, eel, sea snakes, tomtates, lizardfish, filefish, octopus and triggerfish. To report a fish kill, call 1-800-636-0511. Humans generally are not affected, but wave action can cause the karenia brevis cells to break open, which releases toxins into the air that can cause respiratory irritation. For folks with severe or chronic respiratory conditions, such as emphysema or asthma, red tide can cause serious illness. The red tide toxins also can get into mollusks, such as oysters and clams, which can lead to neuMap courtesy of FWCRed tide in low to medium concentrations remains well offshore the coast of northern Pinellas County Aug. 8. The FWC confirms that no bloom levels of red tide have been detected alongshore or inshore.rotoxic shellfish poisoning to those who eat contaminated shellfish. People also should not eat fish suspected to have died from red tide exposure. Pet owners are advised to keep their animals from eating dead fish that wash up on the beach. Also, if pets swim in a red tide area, they should be washed off immediately afterward. Reports of red tide in the Gulf of Mexico date back to the 1500s. Red tide occurs most years. When it concentrates and forms a bloom, it causes problems. A study of three red tide blooms in the 1970s and 1980s, estimated economic losses between $15 million and $25 million. A red tide bloom in 2005-06 devastated the countys marine life and local businesses felt the effects as tourists canceled bookings. The only positive was additional money granted to researchers, such as the FWRI in St. Petersburg and Mote Laboratories in Sarasota, to study red tide. Two underwater robots were deployed Aug. 1 by Mote and the University of South Florida. Their reports are helping in short-term forecasts of the direction of the bloom path. Waldo, the Mote Marine robot, has reported blooms on the surface and to depths of about 80 feet offshore the Pasco-Hernando line. The USF robot, called Bass, is at the outer edge of the bloom and reported elevated chlorophyll in water as deep as 131 feet. A research cruise, which ended Aug. 6, included scientists from FWC, Mote and USF. The researchers were attempting to construct a 3-D depiction of red tide by measuring concentrations of the algae in waters offshore Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties. Mote scientists also used their BreveBuster during the cruise, which was designed to detect red tide algae. The specialized tool was developed by Mote with grant money it received after the devastating bloom in 2005-06.

County 7A Leader, August 14, 2014 11350 66th St. N., Largo727-538-7771 Safe at Home WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM073114Covering All Of Pinellas CountyWe provide non-medical in-home care such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and companionship to help people maintain quality, independent lives in the comfort of their own homes.Our goal at Comfort Keepers is to keep our senior clients independent in their homes. This goal is driven with safety as the key component. In a heartbeat, a fall can occur that may or may not result in broken bones but for an elderly person it can be a setback that can be life changing as far as them being able to maintain living in their homes. The effect of falls can be devastating both physically and financially. Medications are often the culprit for falls. It is a good practice to ask your doctor about the side effects of each drug you are taking so you are aware of what to expect and be sure to report them to him/her. Also share this information with your family and caregiver. Certain drugs can cause the blood pressure to lower which when getting up out of a chair or bed too quickly may cause dizziness or fainting. Try to get up slowly, especially in the middle of the night, sit on the edge of the bed a moment and then rise slowly to get your bearings. Walkers, canes and other tools of assistance are needed in the prevention of falls. Floppy slippers and shoes with slick soles can be a hazard. Often older adults tend to shuffle more than pick up their feet which makes tripping a real possibility especially on uneven pavement. It is very common for our seniors to attempt to do tasks that they have done their entire life when these very tasks now put them at risk for falling. For example, just one step up on a stool or ladder is extremely dangerous for older adults, who do not have the strength and balance of previous years. Encourage your loved ones to please ask a family member or caregiver to change a light bulb or reach items in cabinets that are too high. Electrical cords running across walkways, clutter or too many throw rugs are an accident waiting to happen. Railings on stairs, grab bars in the bathroom and adequate light are all easy fixes for prevention. It takes our eyes a while to adjust between darkness and light, therefore, adequate lighting is a must. Upon sign up for services with Comfort Keepers, a home environment assessment is done to offer the families ideas of how to take precautions against their loved one falling. This is a thorough checklist of potential conditions and/or methods to assist in prevention of injuries due to falls. Living well encompasses many aspects that in-home care can enhance. These aspects include mental, physical, nutritional and Safety considerations. We offer technology solutions, such as a Personal Emergency Response System, a fall detector, and a medication management system, all designed to increase safety.

According to detectives, a suspect was observed about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 23, entering the back lot of Transtar Motors, 6426 126th Ave. N. in Largo by climbing over a fence. The suspect appears to walk the lot, looking into vehicles and storage bins before leaving the area, according to the sheriffs report. The suspect returned to the car lot about 3 a.m. July 24 entered a white 2011 Ford F-250 crew cab and leaves through the front gate. The suspect is described as a white male with a slender build. He was last seen wearing a ball cap, a light colored long sleeve jacket or sweater and light colored shorts or pants. Anyone with information on this theft is asked to contact Detective M. Johnson of the Arson/Auto Unit at 582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 800873-TIPS or arrested in Operation White PonyFourteen suspects were arrested in July and August in connection with an investigation into distribution of cocaine and heroin in Pinellas County. The multi-jurisdictional investigation, dubbed Operation White Pony, began in late April, according to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office released Aug. 4. Ten suspects were arrested in Pinellas County, two in Hillsborough County, one in Arizona and one in Puerto Rico. Detectives said the suspects had been distributing cocaine and heroin throughout various areas of Pinellas County. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration Tampa District Office initiated Operation White Pony in late April to investigate a drug trafficking organization that was responsible for distributing various amounts of cocaine and heroin through Pinellas County each month. Detectives were able to identify lower tier members of the organization, including Ebenezer Jimenez, 32, of Seminole. Undercover operatives purchased both cocaine and heroin from Jimenez throughout the investigation, which in turn, led them to identify Pedro Maisonet-Gonzalez, 40, of Pinellas Park as the leader of the organization in Pinellas County. He was operating in partnership with his girlfriend 34-year-old Isabel Jasso, 34, also of Pinellas Park. According to detectives, Maisonet-Gonzales made monthly trips to Puerto Rico to purchase cocaine and ship it to Pinellas County through the U.S. Postal Service. Maisonet-Gonzales also purchased handguns in Florida and shipped them illegally to Puerto Rico to be sold to help fund his narcotics business. Detectives said that Maisonet-Gonzales distributed narcotics through Jimenez to various adult entertainment establishments within the county. Jorge Lopez-Abril, 43, of Pinellas Park, Jorge Perez-Diaz, 36, of Puerto Rico and Mike Chavez-Zazueta, 40, of Tucson, Arizona were identified by detectives as alternate suppliers of the heroin and cocaine. Search warrants were served at three locations that were being used by Maisonet-Gonazalez to conceal evidence of his drug trafficking organization and distribution network. During the arrests, almost $90,000 in cash was seized along with 14 handguns. Additional arrests were made of individual members within the organization connected to the distribution of the heroin and cocaine, including Maribel Diaz-Ortiz, 54, of Tampa, Carlos Collazo, 47, of Tampa, Richard Hammons, 32, of St. Petersburg, Jamie Manz, 36, of Clearwater, Luis Salcedo, 28, of St. Petersburg, Anthony Ray Anderson, 54, of St. Petersburg, Lissette Medina, 32, of Seminole, and Miguel Ramos, 48, of Largo. These arrests are the result of the hard work and great effort made by Pinellas County Sheriffs Narcotics detectives and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The State Attorney for the 6th Judicial Circuit provided instrumental support to take down a significant operation here in the Tampa Bay area, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri during the Aug. 4 press conference.Operation Cyber Vigilance nets 132 arrestsPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced the results of Operation Cyber Vigilance, which resulted in 132 arrests and 282 charges. Operation Cyber Vigilance, is the Florida Sheriffs Task Force Spring/Summer operation during which law enforcement sought out individuals who chat with minors online for the purpose of meeting them and engaging them in sexual activity. Nine sheriffs offices hosted operations and eight contributed personnel and resources to the operation. The news conference was held Aug. 5 at the Polk County Sheriffs Office Operation Center at 1891 Jim Keene Blvd., Winter Haven. According to a press release from PCSO, over a four-month period the agencies combined arrested 132 suspects on 282 arrest charges. The suspects were arrested on a variety of charges, the most common ones being traveling to meet a minor and using an online service to lure/entice a minor. Other charges included narcotics related offenses, active fugitive warrants and resisting arrest. The arrested suspects ranged in ages from their 20s through 70s; and came from various occupations to include postal worker, pizza deliveryman, landscaper, a former law enforcement officer and a Disney employee. The press release included three notable arrests, including Bela Sziklassy, 71, a Pinellas County resident, who was arrested for traveling to meet a 12-year-old and possession of child pornography. Investigators say his sexual interest was juveniles diapers to 11 years old. Another Pinellas County resident, Christopher Thomas Stephens, 32, was arrested for traveling to meet a 14-year-old and five counts of possession of child pornography. Investigators said he planned to bring his victim to the condominium where he worked where they could be alone and undisturbed. Allen Treaster, 40, a Polk County resident was arrested for use of a two-way communication device to commit a felony; use of a computer to lure/entice a minor; travel to meet a minor; lewd and lascivious conduct by a person over 18 years of age; and transmission of materials harmful to a minor. Treaster, who is a Disney Animal Kingdom employee, told investigators he fantasized about having sex with a 14 year-old boy and that this was not the first time he travelled to have sex with an underage boy. In this day and age of technology our children are the most vulnerable. Online predators are a top public safety issue across the state. We remain steadfast in our commitment to continue to utilize every law enforcement resource we have at our disposal to protect our kids from these individuals, Gualtieri said. Floridas Sheriffs are committed to conducting these investigations to protect our children from sexual predators. We are passionate about preventing child exploitation and holding those who prey on children accountable, Judd said. Investigators say awareness is the key. Parents are encouraged to learn to use parental monitoring software for computers and smartphones; to become familiar and learn to utilize social media; to speak to their kids about the dangers of the internet and discuss when there is media coverage of the issue. Investigators ask the public to report online exploitation of children to their local law enforcement.

Four chickens were located at Walsingham Park in Seminole and three were in Cross Bayou in the unincorporated Seminole area. Last week, Pinellas County Mosquito Control received confirmation of two positive results for St. Louis encephalitis, one at Walsingham Park and one in Cross Bayou, bringing the total to five positive results at Walsingham Park and four positives in Cross Bayou in 2014. Sentinel chickens serve as an early-warning detection system for some mosquito-borne diseases and can signal the fact that mosquitoes carrying the diseases are present in the area. There are eight locations in the county where chickens are kept and tested weekly. Mosquito Control technicians are aggressively treating known breeding areas by ground and by air, as well as responding to requests from residents. Additional fogging is ongoing in these areas. St. Louis encephalitis differs from chikungunya, which is not detected in sentinel chickens but also is transmitted by mosquitoes. There have been three confirmed cases of chikungunya in Pinellas County this year. None of the cases were locally acquired, but imported from the Caribbean. The public is urged to be diligent in ridding their properties of standing water to prevent mosquitoes breeding. Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one-quarter inch of standing water, so residents are advised to take the following precautions: Empty water from old tires, flower pots, garbage can lids, recycling containers, boat tarps and buckets. Eliminate standing water near plumbing drains, air conditioner drips, septic tanks or rain gutters. Flush birdbaths and wading pools weekly. Flush bromeliads twice weekly or treat with a biological larvicide. Change the water in outdoor pet dishes daily. Keep pools well chlorinated. Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating gambusia fish. Cover rain barrels with fine mesh screening. Repair rips or tears in door and window screens. In addition, the Florida Department of Health advises residents to follow preventive measures consisting of the 3 Ds: Drain standing water around the home. Dress in light colors and wear loose fitting clothing that covers the arms and legs. Defend yourself by using mosquito repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus on exposed skin, in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations.

While these volunteer activities may be performed with the core intention of helping others, there is also a common wisdom that those who give of themselves also receive. Researchers have attempted to measure the benefits that volunteers receive, including the positive feeling referred to as helpers high, increased trust in others, and increased social and political participation. Coach Daniel Hurtado of Defiant Warrior of Tampa knows firsthand that volunteering is beneficial to everyone involved. Volunteering has always been something very important to him. On July 7 of this year, Coach Daniel took his team of mixed marital artists (Patrick Edwards, Paul Barrow, Oleg Koranevski, Devin Rodriguez, Geane Herrera, Aalon Cruz, Marcos Briones, Mark Mendez, Peter Almanzar, Rob Horton and Logan Robinett) and they paid a visit to the children at the Shriners Hospital/Rotary Club Care A Lot camp in Brandon. During their visit the team members performed demonstrations, passed T-shirts out to all of the children and spoke to the kids about safety. This team of men truly have a heart for the betterment of their community. They certainly put some smiles on those little faces. Way to go guys! Over the past two decades we have seen a growing body of research that indicates volunteering provides individual health benefits in addition to social benefits. This research has established a strong relationship between volunteering and health: those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer. So, go find somewhere or someone to help out. It is good for both the receiver as well as, the giver.

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

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

Viewpoints 11A Leader, August 14, 2014I guess Ill never get rid of Hurricane Charley. I was asked by my friends and former coworkers at the Osceola News-Gazette to write about the storm from my perspective as assistant editor of that newspaper 10 years ago. August 13 marks the 10th anniversary of the storm, and the NewsGazette is publishing articles about the event. I remember going to a political function Aug. 12, 2004, knowing that Hurricane Charley was likely to hit Kissimmee. I was immersed so much in the jokes and news tips that I didnt think much about how we should cover Charley. As the bands from Charley loomed overhead early the next afternoon, I began to sense that the storm had the potential to cause widespread damage. Did it ever. Charley came hard and fast that evening, Friday, Aug. 13. It was a Category 2 storm. I woke up the next morning to find a 16foot oak tree lying in my back yard, along with branches and other debris. Sprawling oak trees, at maturity, are rightfully loved for their grace and shade. But in a storm such as Charley, they are dangerous instruments of the devil as they wreak havoc upon utility poles, houses, streets and other structures. Walking through the neighborhood, I saw shredded roofs, mangled fences and fallen power lines. Ill never forget the tired face on the woman sitting in a chair on her front porch. A look of disbelief, hopelessness. After interviewing neighbors, I started to drive toward downtown Kissimmee, to assess the damage at the newspaper office. My editor was on vacation in the backwoods of Alaska on a volunteer work project so I had to come up with a plan to cover Charley. I didnt even own a cell phone then so I was out of touch with my staff and correspondents. Not sure if it would have made any difference, as cell phone service was limited, too. I had to trust that journalists instincts would rule the day. The damage to the office was minimal, just a crippled awning, but the power was out. Along Broadway, shattered glass from storefront windows filled the sidewalks. I uttered a few curse words under my breath. God, what a mess. So many lives affected. However, utility crews were already restoring power. Since our office was on the same grid as the police stations, I was told, we should have service that Monday. Otherwise, God only knows when wed be able to put out the paper possibly three days late and useful to some readers only for catching bird droppings in a cage. While I was downtown, I checked on a friend who lived nearby. She said she and her boys were OK, except for her old twostory house being unbearably hot. A big hug and good-byes. Then I went to a nearby mall where people were lining up for food and water from a state agency. Gov. Jeb Bush came through for Kissimmee. Didnt sleep well that Sunday. The steady hum of generators, the smell of rotting wood and the intense heat kept me awake half the night. I met with my staff Monday morning, and we wasted little time in deciding upon assignments. Somebody would do the main story; others would do features, sidebars as we call them as much as we can. Also important was to provide a list of agencies for people to call to get help. The correspondents came through with plenty of photos. This was before any of us except the staff photographer had a digital camera so we had to take rolls of film to photo shops and drug stores to have them processed, if memory serves me right. Everybody pitched in on the coverage, including the publisher. The destruction was unbelievable, from severed railroad crossing arms to crushed airplane hangars to houses left with no roofs and fallen trees everywhere. The phones rang constantly and I lost my temper when a receptionist patched through a call from a woman wanting to know whom she could call to have her fallen bushes removed. Not now. Call back six weeks from now and maybe we can help you. The power was still out in my house; I slept in the office for two nights just to keep cool. On Wednesday morning, I had to decide upon a headline, called the banner, which would run across the page. As I recall, it was Charley, what a mess you made. Probably not my best. In hindsight, I think the headline should have read, Charley, you miserable S.O.B. We got the paper out, and we went out for drinks that Friday on the company, of course, as a reward for our hard work. I complimented the staff on the work they did. Thank God were done with that. To hell with hurricanes. One of our staff members lost power for three weeks, as I recall. Others also had problems to take care of, thanks to Charley. Nevertheless, we did our jobs. I like to think we helped some people. Lessons learned from a journalists standpoint? Maybe a few. Make sure you have plenty of gas. Call the people back who are worried about you, even if youre busy. Dont walk on water-soaked streets where power lines are down. Be safe and just do the best you can. Trust your employees to succeed. After my experience with Charley, I had no desire to cover hurricanes again. Then came Frances and Jeanne. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

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

A super moon occurs when a full moon is closest to the earth in its elliptical path, which can make the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than when at its farthest distance from Earth.Super moon By BRIAN GOFFSEMINOLE They are nerds and geeks and they dont mind telling you. Thousands of people attended the first annual Mid-Pinellas Comic Con at the Seminole Community Library on Saturday, Aug. 9, and many of them were dressed up like their favorite comic book or sci-fi characters. They say it is all about being yourself. Rae Johnston, 16, of Largo, dressed as a minstrel, said she intended to spend the entire day at the event because she felt at home. Im surrounded by my geek brethren, she said. This is cosplay, where you dress up as a character that you love. Nobody judges you here; it is more about the love than the content. Johnston seemed to be in a constant state of motion with a smile on her face, yet she had a couple of complaints. It could be bigger and there is not enough food here, she said. There arent enough things to buy. When told there were several food trucks outside with plenty to eat, she replied: It is too hot out there. Indeed with blazing sunshine and the temperature in the mid-90s all day, the place to be was inside in the air conditioning. Thats where Nicole Jacobs-Roberts spent her time dressed in a unique dress that she made herself. It was a dress made entirely of trading cards, Pokmon cards, U-GI-O cards and others. There are at least 400 cards in the dress. I attached or sewed every one on myself, she said. Jacobs-Roberts drove from Palmetto to attend the convention. To her it was a drive well worth it. I used to work the road, she said. I love any comic con no matter where it is, so no, this wasnt a long drive at all. Jacobs-Roberts, 26, admits hers is an unusual hobby, but she loves it. It is fun, I love the costumes, I love the creations, she said. This is a welcoming environment. These costumes are an art form. My mom says it is time I grow out of this, but I dont think so. Just a week before the Seminole gathering the largest Comic Con in the Bay area was held in Tampa. Jacobs-Roberts went to that one, too. It is all about meeting friends and running all over the hotels at night looking for other friends. We get into all sorts of shenanigans at these things, she said. St. Petersburg College and the Seminole Community Library staged the Mid-Pinellas Comic Con jointly. The idea was to bring such an event closer to home. The event is for Pinellas residents who may not attend other fan conventions because of the distance or cost, said Chad Mairn, the librarian at the SPC Seminole campus. In addition to the vendors and displays there was some serious business available at the convention. College representatives were on hand to talk to prospective students about the college and some of its offerings, specifically video game development and animation digital imaging. In addition there were discussion panels relating to costuming and horror entertainment. Busch Gardens representatives also were on hand to reveal how they make their annual howl-a-scream event so terrifying. A check through the crowd verified that Comic Con was for all ages. Confronting, face to face, was Savannah Tall, 1, and the Star wars Robot R2-D2. The robot was fully animated and operated from afar so no one, not just little Savannah, had any idea why the Robot kept moving about. She loved it, according to her mom Dena Klinger of Largo. She likes it, there is so much for her to see here, she said. It depends on the individual who comes here whether it is about the comics or the dressing up. I know I come to enjoy it all. Mairn, the organizer of the event, said there will be another one next year. For sure well be doing this in 2015, he said. This year it exceeded our wildest expectations. By the end of the day we estimated there were more than 3,500 people who came to the event. This was very successful.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced the funding Aug. 6, a total of $7 million granted across the country. PCHA has been awarded $111,093 for firstyear funding, a result of a nationwide competition for the vouchers earlier this year. The funding will help 16 homeless veterans at HEP West Apartments, at 1101 Holt Ave. in Clearwater. It represents more than $1 million committed to local veterans, as the vouches will be provided annually for a minimum of 10 years. The C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center will provide case management and clinical services provided by Veterans Affairs. PCHA currently administers 315 such vouchers for homeless veterans in Pinellas County. We are tremendously honored to have been selected by HUD to provide these project-based vouchers to homeless veterans in Pinellas County, said PCHA Board Chairman Joseph Triolo. Our partnerships with the C.W. Bill Young Veterans Medical Center and Homeless Emergency Project will assure that we continue to work toward providing affordable housing to homeless veterans in a caring, supportive environment as they receive the services and care that they need moving forward. HEP West Apartments was constructed and put into service in June 2012 and consist of 32 fully furnished one-bedroom, one-bath apartments. Each unit is approximately 500 square feet and features a full bath and a fully functional kitchen with Energy Star appliances. The property includes design features that provide for resident safety, privacy and security, including exterior lighting, security cameras/video surveillance, fencing, fire protection sprinklers and assigned parking. In addition to the case management and clinical services provided by the VA, HEP West Apartments offers a full-time case manager and an employment specialist to assist the veterans as they work toward self-sufficiency. Were very thankful to be one of 24 housing authorities in the nation selected to participate in this program, said Debra Johnson, PCHAs executive director. Were excited about our ability to assure the continued sustainability of the HEP West program, and most importantly, our ability to provide housing and supportive services to additional homeless veterans in Pinellas County, For more information about PCHA, visit For more information about HEP, visit housing agency receives funding for homeless vet project Photo courtesy of the PINELLAS COUNTY HOUSING AUTHORITYThe Pinellas County Housing Authority will receive more than $1 million in federal funds to benefit the HEP West Apartments, shown, which provides housing for homeless veterans.

On July 30, had the honor of hosting the world premiere of Amos video for Promise, a new single from her latest album, Unrepentant Geraldines, and her first major collaboration with her daughter Natashya. Its been 22 years since Amos released her groundbreaking debut album, Little Earthquakes, which enjoyed bounteous critical success though it peaked outside the Top 50 on the Billboard 200. Singles such as Silent All These Years, China, Winter and Crucify garnered attention initially on alternative radio programs. Videos for the singles entered the rotation on MTV and Amos appeared on television programs such as Late Night with David Letterman, CBS This Morning and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Since then, Amos has sold more than 12 million albums. She has played more than a thousand shows and has won numerous awards. Amos continues to be adored, picking up new fans along the way, romanced by her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness and her utterly peerless sound. Unrepentant Geraldines, released by Mercury Classics in May, continues that tradition. It is the sound of a singer-songwriter returning with elevating vigor to the intimate songwriting craftsmanship that illuminated her as a unique talent two decades ago.Synthpop rocker to raisin girl Success didnt come overnight for Tori Amos. Prior to her debut solo album Little Earthquakes, Amos fronted the synthpop band Y Kant Tori Read from 1984-89. Before that, she spent years in classical training at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. She began singing in clubs and bars at age 13. Little Earthquakes showcased Amos piano rock and raw, confessional poetry. The same year that album came out, Amos also released Crucify, a five-song EP featuring two tracks from Little Earthquakes Crucify and Winter as well as three cover songs. Amos adaptations of The Rolling Stones Angie, the Led Zeppelin song Thank You and, particularly, Nirvanas Smells Like Teen Spirit began getting modest airplay on alternate and community radio stations. Amos second studio album, Under the Pink, was released in 1994. The album peaked at No. 12 in the United States and debuted at No. 1 in the UK. The album produced four singles, including God, Cornflake Girl, Pretty Good Year and Past the Mission, a song which featured backing vocals by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor. On the UK singles chart, Cornflake Girl hit No. 4 and was considered her most successful international hit of the 1990s. The song includes references to cornflake girls those who are narrow-minded and generally intolerant and raisin girls those who are more likely to embrace diversity. Amos defines herself in the first line, singing Never was a cornflake girl. Amos next released Boys for Pele in 1996. This album included the singles Caught a Lite Sneeze, Talula, Professional Widow and Hey Jupiter. Dance remixes of Professional Widow reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts in the United States. In the Springtime of His Voodoo was also remixed and released as a dance single. Amos other studio albums include From the Choirgirl Hotel (1998), To Venus and Back (1999), Strange Little Girls (2001), Scarlets Walk (2002), The Beekeeper (2005), American Doll Posse (2007), Abnormally Attracted to Sin (2009), Midwinter Graces (2009), Night of Hunters (2011), Gold Dust (2012) and her new release, Unrepentant Geraldines, 2014. According to her biography provided by Mercury Records, Amos known best for multifaceted, filigreed piano rock has Network), which is the United States largest anti-sexual assault organization. Right now, Amos is an artist working at the height of her powers. Despite her busy recording and touring schedule, in 2013, she saw the opening in London of The Light Princess, a stage musical co-written by Amos and developed with the National Theatre. Amos first had the idea for the project in 2008, inspired by the 1864 story by Scottish author George MacDonald. Working with a large creative team and cast, she was energized by the experience a creative renaissance that is apparent on Unrepentant Geraldines. Given that her current tour will see her give 80 performances in cities around the world, Amos clearly has no intention of slowing down at the moment. Those who catch the show Aug. 22 can expect to see Amos in classic form: just her, her piano, her songs and her voice.

Amos is touring in support of her new Mercury Classics release Unrepentant Geraldines.routinely experimented with different musical styles and instruments during the course of her career. Her studio albums range from the baroque dusk of Boys for Pele, to the electronic experimentalism of From the Choirgirl Hotel and To Venus and Back. Her successful concept album American Doll Posse was followed by the acclaimed Christmas record Midwinter Graces.. In 2011, she returned to the classical world with the classically inspired song cycle Night of Hunters. Her 13th studio album, 2012s Gold Dust, was a varied selection of works from her songbook all newly arranged for vocals, piano and orchestra, recorded with the Metropole Orchestra for Deutsche Grammophon/Mercury Classics. Amos confronts the reality of lifes many challenges through her lyrics and she has addressed a variety of poignant subjects over the last two decades. As her biography states, she has famously put her own experiences both positive and harrowing into song in a style that is both intimately autobiographical but simultaneously approachable and inspirational.Unrepentant GeraldinesTori Amos Unrepentant Geraldines her 14th studio album was released in May.

But during a 10-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.FrankGenre: Comedy Cast: Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy, Carla Aza and Francois Civil Director: Lenny Abrahamson Rated: R Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson follows up his award-winning films Adam & Paul, Garage and What Richard Did with an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Written by Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan, Frank is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson. It is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.Life After BethGenre: Comedy and horror Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser and Anna Kendrick Director: Jeff Baena Rated: R Zach (Dane DeHaan) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isnt quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zachs whole world takes a turn for the worse.RagnarokGenre: Action and adventure Cast: Pl Sverre Hagen, Nicolai Cleve Broch, Bjrn Sundquist and Sofia Helin Director: Mikkel Sandemose Rated: PG-13 Sigurd Svendsen (Pl Sverre Hagen) is a Norwegian archaeologist who is fascinated by a viking ship found at the Oseberg burial mound. He believes that a runic inscription on the ship, which translates to man knows little, holds the key to understanding the Norse myth of Ragnarok: the day when heaven and earth are destroyed. After finding similar inscriptions on a stone in Northern Norway, Sigurd, along with his kids and a colleague, begins an expedition to uncover the secret of the day of doom.The Trip to ItalyGenre: Comedy Cast: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Director: Michael Winterbottom Not rated Michael Winterbottoms largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon or semifictionalized versions thereof on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batmans vocal register, the artistic merits of Jagged Little Pill, and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity.For more movie news, visit Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the leftside menu. freeFall extends One Flew Over the Cuckoos NestST.
