TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners called for the resignation of Commissioner Curtis Holmes Sept. 16, following the discovery of inappropriate material on his city-issued iPad. The links to images and YouTube videos were downloaded from Facebook and sent to Holmes personal email account. They included a cartoon depiction of Muhammad makin bacon with a pig and a video of a woman in her underwear shaking her butt in front of a webcam. In my opinion, the images and the video that are on his computer are just completely reprehensible, Commissioner Jamie Robinson said. If this was found on any city employees computer, they would have been fired immediately, no questions asked. However, improper use of city-issued electronics does not fall within the very limited and specific reasons for removing someone from office as outlined in the city charter, City Attorney Alan Zimmet said. The commissioners could draft a resolution to censure Holmes, which amounts to a public reprimand. They potentially could take away his use of city electronics, but nothing more, Zimmet explained. Honestly, I think Commissioner Holmes should resign, Robinson said. Theres no reason that anybody thats Thirteen years later, firefighter runs to remember By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER Concerned that as time goes on people might not remember the events of 9/11 2001 as distinctly, a Clearwater firefighter decided to do something unique in the hopes of keeping the memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11 alive. Lt. Mark Wing decided to don full firefighting gear, then, in the heat, in 90plus degrees, he ran 11 miles from Clearwater Fire and Rescue Fire Station 44 on Sand Key to Fire Station 49 behind the Clearwater Mall. Before the run, he was concerned because of the heat and the extra 60 pounds of gear he would be carrying. Ive done longer races, but not in full gear, he said. Ive done the distance before, and I know it will be the heat that Ill be battling. To battle the heat, Wing carried lots of water and sports drinks. His day didnt stop once he reached Station 49. Once there, he shed the firefighters gear and donned a military-style backpack and turned around and ran the 11 miles back to Station 44. He wanted to represent both the firefighters and the military members who were all involved in the events surrounding 9/11. It holds a special meaning for me. Im a fireman and a military veteran, he said. I was stationed in Kuwait when it happened. I was in the Air Force for 16 years, so Im doing this for the firemen and the soldiers and veterans whoProject PUP adds mini pig to its ranks of therapy petsPhotos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, Oscar, a 1-year-old miniature pig, seeks approval as a therapy pet from Project PUP, or Pets Uplifting People, Sept. 13. Oscar lives with Jeanne and David Ochoa of Gulfport. Below, Oscar greets Joyce Berry, left, and her daughter Sheila Speigle who was visiting her at Palm Garden of Pinellas in Largo. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Oscar created quite the stir when he arrived at Palm Garden of Pinellas in Largo to be screened as a therapy pet Sept. 13. The black and white miniature pig on a leash remained calm as his adoring fans crowded to take his picture and snap selfies. His demeanor earned him a checkmark on his evaluation as a pet who would be well suited to visit the elderly and, in his case, autistic children. You can see hes going to be hugely popular, said the woman with the clipboard, Karen Tappan, president of Project PUP, or Pets Uplifting People. The group screens new pets six times a year. The vast majority of their 450 active therapy pets are dogs, but there have been a few exceptions since its founding in 1984. The occasional cat passes muster, and the organization once had a pony named Star in its ranks, said longtime volunteer Jen Kelly, 85. Another pig was approved back around the time Kelly first began volunteering in 1992. Dogs and animals, they do a lot for the people who are in wheelchairs, Kelly said. Oscar, just over a year old, has been living with Jeanne and David Ochoa of Gulfport for about nine months. Jeanne Ochoa began considering a pig for a Mobile home residents cry foul at fees Photo courtesy of CLEARWATER FIRE AND RESCUEFirefighter Lt.

Heath Brenner, left, and civilian Rebekah Horneber, from Fire Station 44 on Sand Key to Fire Station 49 behind the Clearwater Mall in remembrance of 9/11. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Last year when Pinellas County implemented its surface water assessment fee for unincorporated residents, some complained. But this year, an overflow crowd showed up to protest after some received bills as much as 340 percent higher. Nearly all were residents of mobile home parks. Kelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager, explained that last years bills were incorrect incomplete. This years assessments are more accurate. They were calculated using data from digitized images, showing all the impervious surfaces inside the different parks, including roads, swimming pools, patios, shuffleboard courts and other structures besides the mobile homes. Assessments that are more accurate allow the county to capture the best revenue stream based on the amount of runoff from each property. Rainwater and water from sprinklers flow out onto the ground, which becomes saturated. The excess water, or runoff, continues onto sidewalks and streets, picking up pollutants as it then flows into storm drains, ponds, ditches and on into the countys waterways and Gulf of Mexico. Federal regulations require the county to maintain certain water standards. More money is needed to maintain an aging stormwater system and pay increasing cost of operations. More maintenance is needed to help alleviate flooding problems in some areas. Better surface water management is needed to help lower flood insurance premiums. The county created its new fee to provide a dedicated source of funding for surface water management. Fifteen municipalities already charge such a fee. Many agree that citizens should help fund surface water-related activities. But fee increases of 200 to 340 percent are too much, said Todd Pressman, on behalf of a conglomerate of mobile home parks. He said the concern is that the fee is disproportionate. He questioned the countys change in methodology for calculating the new bills. Mobile home parks have become the affordable housing of the county, he said. He asked commissioners to better balance the cost to owners of mobile home parks before charging the new fees. Attorney David Eastman represents a number of mobile home parks. He too talked about the huge fee increases and blamed it on the change in the way the county used the data from the digitized maps. He offered to sit down with staff to help find a solution. He said mobile home parks were about affordable housing for retirees, singles and families. He objects to the parks being assessed the same as commercial property. He added that some of the parks have surface water improvements that could qualify them for credits on their bill. But the period to apply is past. The rate of increase got everyones attention, he said.

4A Largo Leader, September 18, 2014fought for 9/11. As Wing was donning his gear for the run, Clearwater resident Rebekah Horneber showed up in running gear. She had heard about Wings event and was determined to join him. My dad was a volunteer firefighter, she said. It is hard to put into words how you might describe the feeling of losing over 300 firefighters who lost their lives trying to save others. Horneber, like Wing, is concerned that people will forget what happened on that day in 2001. You cant forget that; you cant act like it was nothing, she said. As the years go by, people tend to forget; we cant let it go by without doing something. Nearby with her little dog in tow, Sand Key resident Olga RamosAguero showed up to lend her support to Wing. She said shell never forget the day the towers came down. I had just dropped my children off at school and was going for a walk in Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, she said. I had a radio with me and I heard it then. It is hard to forget. I had chills when I heard it. I thought it had to be a hoax, I didnt believe it. Ramos-Aguero said she still has trouble getting her mind around what happened. I can only imagine what people went through back then, people with friends who lost their lives, she said. It takes courage for a firefighter to do what they did on 9/11. Our country was under attack. I was in a state of disbelief. The run was actually held in every state and six other countries. It was called the Virtual Run and encouraged people to run 11 miles on the 11th. Wing knows he isnt the only one in Florida doing it, but believes he is the only participant in the 9/11 run doing it in full gear. A colleague, Lt. Heath Brenner, joined him in the run. Wing is married with two children, ages 10 and 8. When asked what his children think of his effort, he paused before he answered. My son is the younger of the two, and he really doesnt comprehend what is going on, he said. And I have never really asked my daughter what she thinks of what I am doing. I do things by myself. I do it so I will remember and to help spread the word. Wing feels spreading the word about 9/11 is necessary to get others to remember. I know people who were at Ground Zero, I know people who lost their lives when the towers collapsed, so we cant forget, he said. I think that maybe if people arent forgetting, they are getting used to it. After 13 years they are growing accustomed to it. If they werent directly involved and didnt know people who were involved, perhaps people are now thinking it isnt as significant as when it first happened. Doing the 22 miles took Wing longer than he thought. The first 11 miles from Station 44 to Station 49 took him four hours, and he admitted the heat got to him. As a result, he waited until early evening, when it got cooler to do the second 11 miles. Is he still glad he did it? Absolutely, he said. Photo courtesy of CLEARWATER FIRE AND RESCUEClearwater Firefighter Lt. Mark Wing and civilian Rebekah Horneber climb the Clearwater Memorial Causeway on a 22-mile round-trip trek in honor of those who died and risked their lives to save others on 9/11. RUN, from page 1A FEES, from page 1A PIG, from page 1AOne example was for Amber Glades Mobile Home Park in Safety Harbor. The current years stormwater fee was $16,000. The new bill is $60,000, which increases the monthly cost to renters from $3.16 to $12. Frank Torres told commissioners he would have to stop buying his pills to be able to afford his share of the increased bill to Oakcrest Mobile Home Park in Largo. Im on Social Security. My wifes on Social Security, he said. He said coming up with $12.39 extra a month would be difficult. Last years fee increased his rent by $3.86. I dont know where to get the extra money, he said. I cant get my teeth fixed. Fred Bickley from Bickley Management brought another problem to the table older parcels built from 1970-1990. He said they were constructed based on code at the time, but now they cant be improved to qualify for credits. He said his bill had increased 115 percent over last year. Attorney Rex Sparklin representing Orange Lake Civic Center in Largo told commissioners that the special assessment violated state statute. You may need to table this issue until you work it out, he said. Commissioners discussed the possibility of rolling the bills back to last years rate or removing roadways from the assessments, which would reduce the amount. But, the tax rolls have to be certified by Sept. 15. Staff said there just wasnt enough time. Commissioners asked staff to consider the effect of removing roadways inside mobile home parks from the assessment. The plan is to amend bills and issue credits if necessary. Some voiced a concern about the added workload for staff. Im very sensitive to issues causing staff to have more work, but Im a lot more sensitive to our citizens, said Commissioner Janet Long. Its not their fault this is coming up four days before the deadline. She encouraged staff to work out the problem before next year. Get it right so we dont have these same issues, she said. County Administrator Mark Woodard said the commissioners intent was clear. The how is still unclear, but well figure it out, he said. The commission voted 6-1 to approve fiscal year 2015 surface water service assessments and fees. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. pet as her beloved Jack Russell terrier aged and she feared no dog would be able to replace her. So I decided, what could be different that I could train? And up popped a pig, she explained. Jeanne began to research pigs, and discovered they were smart, clean animals. She really got into it, her husband said. The Ochoas were careful to choose from a breeder they could trust who would sell a miniature pig, not a piglet that would grow into a 300-pound animal. We were really worried about that at first, David said. But Oscar is full grown at about the height of his Jack Russell roommate. He used the litter box the Ochoas provided him right away, though he had never lived inside a house before. Despite a period in which they had to retrain him, Oscar now faithfully uses the litter box to pee and asks to go outside for all other business. Theyre so smart. He can outwit you. I have to stay a step ahead of him, Jeanne said. The Ochoas discovered that Oscars tail wags when they talk, he appreciates music and has several distinct vocalizations. Jeanne keeps a journal to track Oscars behavior patterns. Shes learning the different sounds he makes, David said. The couple, married four years, met walking their dogs in Clam Bayou Nature Park in Gulfport. David trains dogs; his German shepherd is registered with Therapy Dogs International and has served on search and rescue teams, looking for people trapped in disaster zones. Once Oscar was settled into his new home, Jeanne, a certified nursing assistant, searched for ways to share him with others. She found Project Pup. She likes to see people smile and she knows theres a need, David said. Oscar has been asked to work with children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at 74th Street and Gulfport elementary schools. Jeanne also would like to take him to local nursing homes, she said. Project PUP provides the backing for those endeavors. The organization has expanded its population reach as pet therapy has become more popular and requested, Tappan explained. The mission has always been more for the assisted living and the elderly, because theyre the ones that are on the shelf, she said. But Project PUP dogs now serve in more than 300 facilities in the Tampa Bay area. They minister to cancer patients and Pinellas County inmates in therapy as well as children learning to read at Largo and Seminole libraries. The organization was started in 1984 by Betty Luttier, who noticed that the demeanor of her husband a war veteran and paraplegic improved when he was around dogs, Tappan said. At the time, the concept of using pets as therapy was not a widely accepted practice, and Luttier had to work to convince facilities to give her access to their residents or patients. But since then, the research has caught up with Project PUPs mission. Its been proven that, physiologically, interacting with an animal will reduce your heart rate and blood pressure. Its just a calming thing, Tappan said. Now, progressive facilities work directly with Project PUP to bring pet therapy to the clients they serve.

Several commissioners said they would support a censure of Holmes. Both Commissioners Michael Smith and Robert Murray asked for an explanation. Holmes said he had no intentions of defending myself, threatening instead to take a very aggressive posture against the violation of his privacy. There was absolutely nothing there that was sent to the city. It was something I saw on Facebook. I merely sent it to myself, Holmes said. The city, unbeknownst to me, was intercepting that. Thats actually a violation of federal law. Holmes contended that he had used his business email to send the links to his personal email. But that wasnt true, Zimmet said. In fact, the city became aware of the emails when they showed up in the inbox of at least one other cityissued iPad, through the shared email account assigned to both iPads. Holmes had been given an iPad previously, set up using the Gmail account city.of.largo.com.holmes. When Holmes decided he didnt want an iPad, it was given to a city employee. Later, Holmes asked for the iPad back, but was given a new tablet, set up with the same Gmail account, Zimmet said. Both had access to the emails sent from either tablet. Starting Aug. 26, Zimmet reviewed the emails going back three months. Most of the content he noted was political: right-wing propaganda mixed with anti-Hamas, pro-Israel rhetoric. One YouTube video was a news segment about Meredith Powell, the 24-year-old teacher accused of having sex with her students. Another was Powells controversial video, in which she panders to the camera, clad in only a tank top and underwear. Holmes alluded to the fact that he had consulted with a lawyer on the issue and cited the federal Personal Data Privacy and Security Act as his defense. You wish to censure me, fine. Am I going to resign? Not a chance, he said. You will be hearing about the second shoe. You have my word on that. Commissioner Harriet Crozier called for the citizen charter review committee to be reestablished to reconsider the commissions inability to address a commissioners offense when it would have resulted in a city employees termination. I do realize youre not going to resign, but I have heartburn with what has taken place, she told Holmes. As a mother, I must say, Im very ashamed as the way you acted.

The victims were a 14-year-old female and 16-year-old female who were known to the suspect. The crime occurred at an undisclosed location in Tama County, Iowa. Pinellas County detectives began their investigation on Thursday, Sept. 11, after they were contacted by the Tama County Sheriffs Office in Iowa, requesting assistance with their investigation. Detectives were told that a warrant had been issued for Stewart David Smith, 52, for sexual abuse of a child. According to detectives, Smith reportedly admitted to the media in Iowa that he is a pedophile who has been to prison for crimes related to juveniles. Smith has a criminal history dating back to the 1990s and was a registered sexual offender, but currently has no restrictions and is not required to register. Pinellas County detectives met with Smith Sept. 11 and arrested him on the Tama County warrant. He was transported to the Pinellas County jail without further incident. There are currently no local charges. Detectives said Smith has routinely taken part in juvenile related functions with church youth groups and Girl Scouts while living in Iowa. While living in Florida, he lived near a school and church daycare. Detectives said there could be local victims.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has been monitoring a patching bloom of Karenia brevis, Florida red tide, since July. A small fish kill was reported on Honeymoon Island over the Labor Day weekend and respiratory irritation was reported at Anclote Key, Honeymoon Island and Three Rook Island in FWCs Sept. 5 red tide report. The good news is that it is not moving, Downing told the commission. It is there, but it not moving closer to shore. He said staff was keeping up with the weekly reports from FWC and working to dispel misinformation about the bloom on social media sites. Social media is very useful in situations like this for sending out updates, he said. He added that right now, everyone was optimistic that red tide would not cause problems. But we have a plan in place just in case, he said. The Sept. 12 report from FWC shows that there is no need to put that plan in place at the current time. The last three-day forecast from the University of Florida and FWCs Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tides said the bloom offshore northern Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties would move north. Good news for Pinellas. There were no reports of fish kills or respiratory irritation on or offshore Pinellas last week. Water samples taken alongshore and inshore showed no signs of red tide. Background concentrations were found in three samples taken offshore, including 17 miles off Honeymoon Island, 17 miles off Belleview Island and 39 miles off Mullet Key. Background concentrations dont cause problems. Its common to find K. brevis in local waters at background concentrations, less than 1,000 cells per liter, Alina Corcoran, a researcher at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Institute in St. Petersburg, said in an interview Sept. 5. Karenia brevis, Florida red tide, produces brevetoxins, which is the cause of respiratory irritation, fish kills and other problems. The brevetoxins can affect the central nervous system of fish and other vertebrates, causing these animals to die. Wave action causes the release of the toxins into the air, which leads to respiratory irritation. Satellite images taken Sept. 11 show a patchy surface bloom located about 5 to 15 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties and less than 3 miles offshore of Cedar Key in Levy County.Red tide bloom moving north Satellite images from Sept. 11 show a patchy surface bloom of red tide located about 5 to 15 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties and less than 3 miles offshore of Cedar Key in Levy County.

Exp. 9/30/14 FAST lobbies for more dental care funds in county budget hearing By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Representatives of Faith in Action for Strength Together lobbied Pinellas County Commissioners for more money for dental care during the first budget hearing Sept. 11. They were the only ones from the public to make comment about the proposed budgets for fiscal year 2014-15. Commissioners allocated an additional $500,000 to its Health and Community Services Department for dental care in the coming year. According to Lynda Leedy, interim HCS executive director, $300,000 will be used to serve residents with incomes of 100 percent of the poverty level or less. The remaining $200,000 will be used to serve those who make 200 percent of the poverty level or less. Staff estimates that the additional money will allow them to provide dental care to 1,600 more, as well as enhance the service to people who already were enrolled in the countys program. But FAST wants more $4.3 million more. Donna Davis, the first of more than two dozen people who signed up from FAST to speak to commissioners about spending more money for dental care for those on fixed incomes and the working poor. About six left before the public hearing began at 8:40 p.m. after commissioners listened to those unhappy with their stormwater utility bills. The public hearing on budgets and millage rates came after three other hearings, which began at 6 p.m. Davis told the commission that FAST had requested a report from the Department of Health in Pinellas County on what it would take to improve dental care. She said they asked how much money would be needed to serve residents in existing facilities if hours were extended in the evening and clinics could see patients on Saturday. She said the working poor were unable to take off work to go to the clinics during normal hours. The report showed that by extending hours, the Health Department could serve nearly 11,000 at a cost of $4.3 million. Please help our Health Department, theyre awesome, she said. County Administrator Mark Woodard pointed out that the commission had nearly doubled the budget for the indigent dental health program, spending $480,000 in the current year and adding $500,000 for next year. Commissioner Ken Welch said the $500,000 was not a one-time cash infusion but would be recurring dollars for the program. FAST acknowledged that $500,000 was good, but still not enough. Several seniors talked about their own need. They said living on Social Security benefits, receiving as little as $700 a month, didnt allow them to afford dental care something that becomes necessary with aging. They talked about the added health risks from having bad teeth and ill-fitting dentures or worse yet, no dentures at all. They talked about the difficulties younger people with missing front teeth have when trying to find a job. Someone needs to do something to help poor people, said Avis Lemon. Commission Chair Karen Seel said the need for improved services had been the focus of a recent dental roundtable. She said providers had been asked to come together to talk about the needs and discuss ways to increase dental services to county residents. She said the discussion confirmed that there are resources in the community. The goal is to find an efficient approach. The professionals say they have the capacity to serve, Seel said. She said staff was working with the Health Department and other stakeholders to come up with a feasible plan to increase capacity. Thats where were headed, she said. Welch said he supported increasing the budget for dental care in future years, adding that it was too late to do more for next year. He said funds had already been allocated. The only place to get more money was from reserves, dropping them below 15 percent something he would not support. Commissioner Charlie Justice suggested that FAST talk to their representatives in Tallahassee about the need for more money. The Department of Health is technically a state agency, he said. He also suggested that the commission make the matter part of its legislative package for next year. He said the county needed to be very specific about what it was asking for with specific dollars for a specific purpose.Budget and millage rates OKd on first passThe commission gave unanimous approval for all county budgets, totaling nearly $2 billion, and millage rates, which remain unchanged from the current year. The final public hearing is set for Tuesday, Sept. 23, 6 p.m. in the fifth floor conference room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/budget/ default.htm.

10A Viewpoints Leader, September 18, 2014President Barack Obama has moved from being disingenuous on immigration to downright undecipherable. Earlier this year, the administration promised a groundbreaking executive action on immigration before summers end. Over the weekend, aides announced that the big new change essentially wont happen until after the midterm elections. Whats up? Obama told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Sunday, Sept. 7, What Im saying is that Im going to act because its the right thing for the country, but its going to be more sustainable and more effective if the public understands what the facts are on immigration, what weve done on unaccompanied children and why its necessary. What Obama couldnt quite say is that if he further undermines immigration law, the Democrats will lose the Senate. And he couldnt exactly blame Republicans for his decision to not act as promised. Ergo, gobbledygook. Obamaland was easier to translate when the administration was crowing about how it was going to go beyond do-nothing Republicans on immigration and pass reforms this summer. Leaks suggested that millions of people might win legal status. Aide Dan Pfeiffer boasted to The Christian Science Monitor that the president would act so boldly that Republicans might try to impeach him. Of course, it turned out to be a big tease, just like candidate Obamas pledge to pass a big immigration bill during his first year in office. The Democrats controlled Congress and the Oval Office then, and he didnt even try. Presidential inaction kept the issue alive so that Democratic operatives can gin up Latino outrage and turn out the base in an off-election year. The spin in Washington was that Republicans would lose out by not being part of an immigration shakeup. This summer, the politics changed as the consequences of nonenforcement came home to roost. A surge of unaccompanied minors mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador hit the border. Many of these children were fleeing for their lives. Many also came from families who saw opportunity. Obamas Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals offered legal status to some immigrants who came here illegally as children. A law signed by President George W. Bush also mandated that children from those nations Central Americas Northern Triangle be given shelter. If you make something legal, you see more of it. Hillary Clinton quickly saw the unintended consequences of a law enacted out of the best of intentions. In June, she told CNN, We have to send a clear message: Just because your child gets across the border, that doesnt mean the child gets to stay. So we dont want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey. Because shes a Democrat, Clinton can say such things without fear of being branded a racist. And that gives others permission to think likewise. Is Obamaland slower to see consequences than Clinton? Or, as I suspect, is Team Obama simply better at teasing the issue? Spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday that Obama is postponing Deferred Action 2.0 because he needs more time to communicate his plans to voters. To which a frustrated Major Garrett of CBS News responded, If he wanted to explain it, he could explain it.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.So here we are in the era of Information Overload or IO. Each day the average citizen is exposed to thousands of incoming messages via phone calls, email, advertisements, TV, radio, personal contacts and simply being alert to the passing parade. Its good to be well-informed. But it can also drive you crazy, unless you somehow learn how to process all that data. Are there courses that can teach you how to stay sane in todays age of IO? If so, Id gladly sign up. Maybe we should fashion our own defense system. Call it CIO Combatting Information Overload. I can think of several first steps. One is to stay in bed each morning with a pillow jammed against each ear. This will shut off most incoming messages. However, it also will cost you your job, or the love of your children waiting to be fed before the school bus arrives. A second step would be to get rid of your TV, computer, radio and newspaper delivery. That would isolate you thoroughly from the outside world. But soon the silence would overcome you. Retreat from IO is not the answer. A more effective step is to train our minds to ignore most of whats coming at us. Such as advertising. Im sick unto death of people trying to sell me something vacuum cleaners, hair spray, real estate, religious beliefs, political candidates, the whole nine yards. (More on this, below). Im not opposed to advertising as such. Its just that so much of it is repetitive, unimaginative or outright lies. Ive become adept at outwitting advertisers. When I watch TV and an ad comes on, I either shut the sound off or just click to another station. When I open a magazine and see that it contains five pages of advertising for each page of useful content, I file the magazine in a trash bag. Unfortunately, in recent weeks Ive begun to give the same treatment to most news reports. Throughout the summer its been a constant yadda-yadda of Ferguson, Gaza, floods, forest fires, Ebola, Putin and political fingerpointing. After awhile it becomes too much. My defense: on most mornings I boot up my Kindle, find a reputable news source and read the basics. For the rest of the day I enthusiastically avoid all incoming news. Does that make me an ostrich? Maybe. A more sensible approach to IO is to maintain the Stoic attitude. A fundamental of Stoicism is to recognize and calmly accept everything, good or evil, that life can throw at us. A Stoic will not flee from reality or dismiss it, but neither will he/she allow fate to be an overwhelming force. Faced with an unceasing flood of daily information, a Stoic will assume the role of a weather-beaten granite mountain, able and willing to survive whatever comes. Another visual defense I often employ against informational onslaught is the everbobbing cork. I picture all of life as an oftenraging sea, in which were mere corks. Waves may sweep over us and drive us under for a brief time, but we always rise again to the surface and greet the return of the inevitable calm. As mental weapons against incoming information deluges, are granite mountains and bobbing corks too simplistic to be recommended to a wide audience? Maybe so. But they work for me, at least part of the time. You probably have invented your own devices. I hope so. Ernest Hemingway said that every writer, to be believable, should develop his/her own bulls-t detector. He neglected to tell us exactly how that can be done. During his lifetime Papa Hemingway peddled a large amount of his own b.s. Still, his advice has merit, not just for writers, but all of us. Today, a valuable detector of lies and malarkey is PolitiFact, an invention of the Tampa Bay Times used to evaluate the degree of truth contained in the statements of candidates, news outlets, government officials and other inhabitants of the public arena. If I were king, I would expand PolitiFacts reach and direct it first and foremost at Americas advertisers, large and small. As much as any other institution, our advertising industry is the source of countless halftruths, distortions, exaggerations and outright lies. Some preventive regulation exists, but not enough to stop the frauds we are exposed to via every communications channel you can name. To sum up: the challenge that information overload presents to us is not just how to resist it, but how to find the nuggets of truth and determine the significance we should assign to each one of them. In attempting to do that, good luck to all of us.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSSignificant historical events reduced to slogansEditor: This past week I had the pleasure of attending the dedication of the Madeira Beach 9/11 Memorial. While it was well attended, moving and a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives that day as well as testament to the bravery of firemen everywhere, I could not help but wonder how many of those attending gave pause to consider the tragedy we witnessed that fateful day and were now memoralizing could have been prevented. To keep this fresh in our minds is equally as important as recalling the sacrifices made that day. We Americans have a tendency to reduce to slogans the significant events in our history. We then use these slogans to rally the faithful and in so doing overlook the invaluable lessons that were there to be gleaned from these experiences. I refer here to events like the bridge at Concord, the first salvo fired at Fort Sumter or the attack on Pearl Harbor. Nowhere in the slogans that were created to memorialize these events is there a scintilla of information that would help in preventing things like these from happening again, only enough information to rekindle our anger when they are recalled. This is especially true in the case of the Al-Qaeda inspired attacks in 1991. Here the lesson we should have learned was the fact this tragedy was made possible only because of the failures of our intelligence community. We must remember, if we have any hope of preventing a recurrence, that had those responsible for our nations security not been engaged in their internecine warfare between agencies, more concerned with who received credit for the intelligence gathered than in sharing it between the agencies involved, then 9/11 would have no more significance on the collective psyche of Americans today than 9/10 or 9/12. There is not a citizen in this nation who will ever need a memorial to remind them of what happened on that fateful September day. Unfortunately, there are far too few Americans who can explain how we allowed it to happen. Lest we forget! Robert Shaw Madeira BeachNeighborhood does its part in accommodating ALFsRe: Commission says yes and no to ALF rezoning requests, Sept. 4, by Suzette Porter.Editor: There are several points in this article that need clarification in regards to Oak Tree Manor. First, it was not just several neighbors who opposed this rezoning. A petition was signed by all of the homeowners in the surrounding neighborhood, except two. The variances that were being requested posed safety issues that had to be addressed with the commissioners. Parking spaces were inadequate on the existing property and a reciprocal parking agreement with Winn-Dixie, which was not valid according to the property owner, highlighted these areas of concern. The neighbors have only opposed two requests at commission meetings. Once when the ALF was built originally and the second at the recent meeting. We have not opposed expansion of this facility when it happened on the existing property. All of the neighbors understand the need for ALF facilities regarding the future of the elderly in our community. Many of us have experienced this need first hand in our families. We have compassion for the elderly residents at this facility. We also feel like our neighborhood has done its part in accommodating residential facilities for the elderly, as we have two ALs in our neighborhood. Patty Gaston Seminole North Dakota is for everyoneEditor: I read an article by Thomas Michalski in the Tampa Bay News titled North Dakota is not for everyone. It can be read online at this rather long address www.tbnweekly.com/editorial/viewpoints/con tent_articles/081914_vpt-01.txt. In his brief transit through the state in August he drew a lot of conclusions that I will generously call uneducated. I guess you could say it put me in a defensive mood. I have spent time in both Florida and North Dakota during all seasons for the last 40+ years. I didnt just pass through one time in August and make snap judgments about the culture and the folks that live in either place. And, I might note, as folks drive on their summer vacations, trying to escape the torturous heat down south, they are using gasoline and oil from North Dakota. North Dakota produces over 1 million barrels a day of oil in the Bakken. Florida produces about 6,000 barrels, which is about enough to get tourists down I-75 to the toll road going to Disney World. I would be willing to compare the unemployment rates and average income in North Dakota (6th) to Florida (27th). Where do you want to work if you want a good income. Do you have to put on heavy clothes in the winter? You betcha. But, it sure helps to keep the riff raft from down south out. Tourists in Florida buy a souvenir sealed empty can that is labeled as Florida Sunshine. Other than hot humid air, sand and Mickey Mouse dolls Florida doesnt offer much else to the rest of the country. I saw the bumper sticker Hell is like Florida: Its not the heat its the humidity. The last two times I stopped to buy oranges on the way out of the state they were not even edible. They might tout the fishing there but even there are many of the places I used to fish for crappie and bass are being taken over by talapia. Many of these places that have talapia were actually stocked by the state and they have displaced the fish Florida is known for. If you want heat in North Dakota you only need to go to the International Peace Garden where they have the most complete, and beautiful, collection of cactus in the world. Several of the plants are the only ones of that kind on the planet. When someone breaks down on the road in North Dakota someone always stops to help. I can tell you from personal experience. When I broke down all three of the next three vehicles stopped to offer aid. The culture in Florida says do not stop to help because of all the strange folks there. Which state do you want to break down in? How many folks in Florida have stepped out of their ice fishing house on a cold crisp night and watched the wonder of the aurora borealis? Did you know most kids in North Dakota not only know what the milky way is, they have seen it. Have they tasted the wonderful flavor of a walleye or yellow perch taken from frigid water? In fact, folks in North Dakota can walk on water. One thing you will notice as you travel around North Dakota is that you will only see one flag displayed and one language spoken; Old Glory and English. If you want to be among the most friendly and hardy folks in America, then I say North Dakota is for Everyone. Dennis Miller Livingston, TexasMichalski tells it like it isRe: Racism and bigotry, by Thomas Michalski, Sept. 4Editor: Quite a gutsy article which should have been written long ago, and many times. Good that you are retired, otherwise, no doubt, someone would want to tar and feather you for having the courage to say it like it is. On the white power fanatics, correct, but give the Confederate flag a break. The confederacy after all was made up of gentlemen of the type of Robert E. Lee, and even Lincoln did not start out as anti-slavery. (Of course we all know it is wrong) but he was trying to hold the union together. Our creed since evolved to say one nation, under God, indivisible. Still Texas and other places seem to want to assert states rights and our country is totally confused on this as the Big 9 sometimes rule for the states and other times against. Same sex marriage for example and treading on religious institutions traditional rights. Sometimes it seems we are ruled by one person, the one on the court that tips the balance on an issue to make it 5-4.

Minister Charles Gill officiated. The bride is the daughter of Dean and Debbie Moentman of Seminole. She is a graduate of the University of South Florida. She is employed by the U.S. Coast Guard. The groom is the son of William and Holly Froehlich of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. He is a graduate of Cape Fear College. The U.S. Coast Guard also employs him. The wedding party included Julie Taylor, matron of honor; Danielle Moentman, maid of honor; Ian Froehlich, best man; Farrah Nolan and Lori Aguero, bridesmaids; Trevor Williams, Andrew Horn, Hunter Johnson, groomsmen; Alexis Taylor, Alice Taylor, Delayna Moentman, flower girls; and Riley Froehlich, ring bearer. A reception followed the ceremony at Basnights Lone Cedar Cafe, Nags Head, North Carolina. The couple honeymooned in Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key. The couple will reside at the U.S. Coast Guard station at Kodiak Island, Alaska. This week will be five years since I had a pretty extensive hip replacement. As a mom with two small kids, ages 3 and 5 at the time, it was hard to handle all the things a mom needs to do and be out of commission for a while. I am so thankful for my family and friends who were there with me during the surgery and the year of recovery. Yes, it was a year of recovery. I actually couldnt put any pressure on my right leg for more than 30 days. I was still using a cane on my 40th birthday. I tried to get rid of the cane before my birthday, but the doctor said I still needed to use it a little longer. I tell you all of this because having the surgery was such a blessing. I didnt realize it at the time, but I realize it now. I am able to do all the things I use to do. Before, the pain in my knee and hip got so bad, I didnt even want to go shopping, and if you know me you know I love to shop. In fact, I knew it was time for the surgery when I didnt want to shop anymore. It hurt to walk and I didnt want to take painkillers, even though I was taking about four Motrin three to four times a day. You are probably wondering why I had a hip replacement at such a young age. Most people are 60 or older when they have a hip replacement. I was 39. The reason was because I was born with a dislocated hip. The doctors did what they could at the time to correct it. When I was two months old, I was put in the hospital and in traction for 30 days. I had surgeries when I was a few months old, including a steel pin in my hip. After the surgery, I was put in a body cast for a year. You dont see too many kids these days in a body cast. Again at age 3, I had surgery again and another body cast. I also had knee surgery when I was 9. My parents went through a lot with me. Years ago, being born with a dislocated hip was an ordeal. They didnt have the technology they do today. My doctor told my parents by the time I was 40, I would need a hip replacement. He was right. I was fortunate enough to be able to have one of the best doctors perform my hip replacement. He actually wrote articles and performed hip replacement surgeries on people who were born with dislocated hips. My hip replacement was so extensive and I had such a long recovery time because they had to cut the femur bone. The bone had to be cut to correct the leg length so that both of my legs would be even. By doing that, my recovery time was a lot longer than your normal, everyday hip replacement. I didnt know until after the surgery that my recovery was going to be long because the doctor couldnt tell for sure if he would need to cut the femur until he performed the surgery. I am so thankful I had a great support team helping me with my kids at the time. I had both my mom and mother-in-law taking care of my two girls along with my husband. I also had a wonderful friend who helped me with picking up my girls from preschool and kindergarten. The women in my Bible study and church came to the rescue with meals for a full month. I couldnt believe it. It was such a big help to have meals prepared every other night. I cant tell you how much a meal means when you arent able to cook. If someone is sick and needs a meal, I try my best to help out because, I know how thankful I was when I was sick and received a meal. I learned so much from going through this surgery. If you asked me right after the surgery if I was glad I had it, I probably wasnt, because it was very painful and such a slow recovery. Today, though I am so glad I did it. I cant imagine being in the pain I was in and living life in agony. What really made an impact on me is the community of family and friends including neighbors who just did what they could to help me. Everything from my daughters preschool class sending a huge get-well card with their handprints to other cards, flowers, to even cleaning my house for me. It was incredible. I couldnt have done it having small children without the help of others. Its those relationships that can help us in our time of need. Thanks again to everyone who helped me and took the time to care. Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

They appeared and disappeared like characters in a video game. Nervous milling like this indicates agitation. The seas were probably buzzing with grunts, growls and barks. Without knowing it, we got ringside seats for a most unusual dolphin behavior, thanks to one of our smartest girls. Of the eight dolphins, there were four onlookers, three contestants and one prize. The onlookers were mother-calf pairs milling on the outskirts of the arena. As with human dramas, dolphin dramas draw a crowd. The three contestants were mature bulls, two against one. Brick and his bonded buddy Nose are seasonal visitors. They are the sole remnants of the once-mighty Punch Buddies bull super alliance that used to appear annually and challenge resident bulls. Schnoz is one of our biggest resident bulls. Dominant, Schnoz works alone. The prize was local lady Bet. A model mother to her firstborn calf, Bet and Ballou lived alongside mother-calf pair Face and Facet. These three dolphins were Bets social world and immensely important to her. All three died abruptly last September within three weeks. Bet had a rough winter. On the other side now, this particularly intelligent dolphin swam with Schnoz. And, ah, how they swam! They paced each other perfectly as they wove in choreographed synchrony, close enough to be touching. When Schnoz surfaced, Bet surfaced. When Schnoz dove, Bet dove. They only broke rhythm when one leaned sideways to present its gleaming white belly to the other; this is a standard friendly invitation. Bet and Schnoz were a courting couple. We got there just as rival bull pair Brick and Nose challenged them. Hey, you never know unless you try. Plus, theoretically, two bulls have the advantage over one bull (if you discount the escorted lady). Brick and Nose started their challenge by milling around the courting couple at a distance. Nose signaled his discontent with a vaporous snort from his blowhole. Brick reinforced Noses signal with a snort of his own. It was like your neighbors shouting at you from across the street by alternately laying on their car horns. Bet and Schnoz stopped their choreographed swimming, adopted the identical humped posture and floated side by side, their backs to the rival pair. In this position, the courting pair looked each other right in the eye, Bets right eye inches from Schnoz left eye. Oh, yeah? says Nose. Take this! Nose arched up over the water surface in great exaggeration and slammed his chin down on the water. Schnoz answered by creating a patch of frothy water with a tailslap. Eh, get lost. Tailslaps are what they seem to be striking contact between the water surface and dolphins powerful peduncle and flukes. Tailslaps are usually warnings. Stop what you are doing! The strength of the warning is revealed by the intensity of the tailslap. Tailslaps range in intensity like laughter ranges in intensity. A low intensity tailslap is like a chuckle. The dolphin barely raises the tailstock above the water and merely dabs it lightly on the down stroke. A medium intensity tailslap is your normal laughter. The dolphin raises the tailstock to a 45-degree angle and gives the water a good smack. A high intensity tailslap is you shrieking with laughter, gasping because the delight that bubbles out of your core takes your breath away. The dolphin elevates the tailstock as high as possible, nearly upending into a headstand, and whacks the water with full force. Undeterred by Schnoz low intensity tailslap, the rival pair edged closer to the courting couple. Undeterred by but undoubtedly aware of the proximity of the rival pair, the courting couple resumed their hypnotic synchronous swimming. Synchronous (unison) behavior is the dolphin way to signal their united front to others (is this why human armies march in step?). Calves initially imitate their mothers moves but ape her less as they grow up; their united front signal is unintended. In contrast, bonded bulls use the synchrony signal the most because it clearly communicates their united front. Thus, it was not strange that bonded bulls Brick and Nose gave synchronized signals like choreographed swims and corresponding snorts. Courting pairs also use the synchrony signal. After all, courtship is cooperation through the escalation of synchronous exchange, and mating in water without arms is so much easier when partners cooperate. I do not know if the synchrony of courting pairs is meant to be a social signal. It could be. The rival bulls trailed the courting pair. The courtship choreography was punctuated with another low intensity tailslap: Schnoz warned the rival bulls behind them. I said get lost. The warning did not work. The rival bull pair closed in, crowding the couple. Roused, big bull Schnoz replied with a high intensity tailslap! Boom! What followed was a most unusual dolphin behavior, thanks to one of our smartest girls. Unexpectedly, Bet reinforced Schnoz ringing warning with a resounding high intensity tailslap of her own. Schnoz bolstered Bets warning with a third reverberating high intensity tailslap. Bet fortified the force of his tailslap with a final fourth rich and resonant tailslap! A series of synchronized tailslaps! This rare form of teamwork signaled the couples united front. It also signaled that dolphin females have choices in the mating arena. Finally, it worked really well. The waters fell silent. Time passed. Dolphins appeared way in the distance. Chase? Escape? Great getaway. After their flourishing signal, Bet and Schnoz sprinted to a private bay. Brick and Nose did not follow them. Instead, they seized the next opportunity that swam by. As the onlookers who had accumulated during the drama slowly dispersed, we glimpsed Brick and Nose on their trail.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver Visit www.TBNweekly.comSigns of fall beginning to showChanges are beginning to take place out on our inshore waters. As we begin the trek into fall, the stage is set perfectly; pelicans and terns are active throughout the day as bait stocks become more and more abundant. Schools of pre-spawn black mullet are getting together on specific tides, creating a situation that is synonymous with fall fishing. Redfish, snook and trout shadow these masses of mullet and the fishing can be spectacular. Targeting this past weeks morning low tides was very productive for working this current mullet pattern. Look for steady dropoffs on the outer edge of grass flats to congregate fish as the water becomes too shallow on the primary flat. The mullet are extremely vulnerable in this situation so instinctually they bunch up in big pods. Bouncing softplastic jigs through these pods will produce strikes as well as drifting live pilchards either under a float or free-lined. Pilchards are readily available and most days gathering bait only takes a few minutes. Sandy areas inside of the passes as well as the swash channel all along the beaches are loaded right now. Using a quarter inch mesh sized cast net will keep the smaller baits from becoming gilled in your net. Offshore fishing remains very good as were still enjoying the benefits of a healthy mangrove snapper population. Reefs, ledges and just about any other piece of structure you can think of are holding big schools of mangrove snapper. Look for the schools to be most active three to five days before or after the full moon. However, they can be easily targeted on most any moon phases. Chum blocks are key to getting the fish up off the bottom, then a steady flow of cut pilchards will keep them interested. Free-lined baits are often the best presentation. However, a small split-shot can be added when the tide is strong.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

In our fast pace society, there does not seem to always be enough time to follow through with our good intentions. There is another avenue to let your special family member or friend know that they are in your thoughts and that is simply to mail a thinking of you card or letter. Receiving a card in the mail is personal, a kind act and especially when you live alone, it is sort of like someone just surprised you with a big hug! Sharing a thoughtful card with your loved one reinforces that they are not alone, they are special and you have them in your heart always. Those of us who receive Thinking of You cards via mail, can attest to that warm, uplifting feeling experienced when opening a card filled with kind words. It can make your day, I know it makes mine. Gift giving is an important part of life and a greeting card is a gift. When you send a card, you are sending an emotional piece of yourself. What better way to tell someone you care. Think about the last time you ripped open a bright envelope to find an unexpected note from someone you love inside. Whether it was a family member, or friend, that joy of having their handwriting right there in your hands is irreplaceable. Something about that note, that card, that letter, communicated love and care simply in its presence. Note how you felt Wouldnt it be amazing to help others feel the same? Emails are easy to keep but they are not tangible and enduring in the same way a handwritten card is. Cards can be displayed on desks and mantles and are so memorable. Many of us have saved our loves notes from our children and many cards sent to us on special occasions, stored for future reminiscing. As the elderly glance at their photo albums filled with loving memories, it is equally special to pull cards out to reread those loving messages sent from family and friends. Cards and letters can create a comfort and deep connection between people through the power of words. Send a card or letter to someone special today and imagine the smile on their face, you will indeed make their day.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:The Skeleton TwinsGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell Director: Craig Johnson Rated: R When estranged twins Maggie and Milo feel theyre at the end of their ropes, an unexpected reunion forces them to confront why their lives went so wrong. As the twins reconnect, they realize the key to fixing their lives may just lie in repairing their relationship.The Maze RunnerGenre: Action, adventure and thriller Cast: Dylan OBrien, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter Director: Wes Ball Rated: PG-13 Thomas wakes up in a lift, moving slowly upward. As the box grinds to a halt and the doors open, he finds himself among a colony of boys who welcome him to the Glade a large open expanse surrounded by enormous concrete walls. Thomas mind is blank. He has no knowledge of where he is, doesnt know where he came from, and he cant remember his parents, his past, or even his own name. Thomas and his fellow Gladers dont know how or why they got to the Glade. They only know that each morning, giant concrete doors that lead to the Maze open. Every night construction to being one of the elite runners who map the walls of the Maze that keep them captive and change configurations every night. Maze Runners race the clock to cover as much ground as possible before the end of the day when the Maze locks down and the deadly biomechanical Grievers roam the corridors of the concrete structure. Even as a newcomer or greenie, Thomas feels an unsettling familiarity about the Glade and the Maze. There is something locked away in his memories that might, in fact, be the key to solving the mysteries of the Maze and possibly the world beyond.This Is Where I Leave YouGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Abigail Spencer, Dax Shepard and Jane Fonda Director: Shawn Levy Rated: R When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their oversharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

Rosh Hashanah is a day of repentance and renewal, judgment and restoration. This day to blow the shofar (Numbers 29:1) prompted Maimonides to write: Sleepers, awake! Reflect on your actions! Remember your Creator return to him! Be not as those whograsp at shadows, miss that which is realwaste their lives pursuing empty things that neither profit or deliverNathan AusebelIn the Talmud God tempers judgment with mercy as a loving father: And God will say to Israel, even to all mankind : My childrenon Rosh Hashanah I will look on you as if you had been created for the first time. For early Christians this day of hope presaged all the joys of Jesus second cominguntil false church doctrines of hellish cruelty and destruction arose, eclipsing His Fathers promises of restitution. Justice against evil will come, but its results? A restored Earth, and mankinds opportunity for resurrection and regeneration The LORD is graciousfull of compassionslow to anger and of great mercy.

Petty, Winwood to play Amalie ArenaTAMPA Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will perform Sunday, Sept. 21, 7:30 p.m., at Amalie Arena formerly Tampa Bay Times Forum. Steve Winwood will appear as a very special guest Amalie Arena is at 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Tickets start at $32.75. Visit www.amaliearena.com. Its been 38 years since Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers released their debut album. Since then, the band has sold more than 60 million records. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, their first year of eligibility, and in recent years have continued to build on their already legendary success. Their concerts are celebrated by fans and critics alike and their music has influenced numerous young bands and writers around the world. Between the Heartbreakers recordings, solo work and his membership in The Traveling Wilburys along with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty has received 18 Grammy nominations and been honored with lifetime achievement awards including Billboards Century Award, ASCAPs Founders Award, MTVs Video Vanguard Award. Pettys SiriusXM radio show, Tom Pettys Buried Treasure, is now in its eighth season and is one of the most beloved and popular shows on satellite radio. It features Tom Petty spinning favorite tunes from his extensive private music collection. Tom Petty, with the Heartbreakers at his side, has become a rock and roll icon lauded by fellow musicians and music lovers worldwide. The bands latest album was released in July and met with instantaneous success. According to a press release from Reprise Records, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart with the release of Hypnotic Eye. The album has been a hit with fans and critics alike, many of whom have declared the album to be amongst Pettys finest. Hypnotic Eye has been critically embraced around the globe, with Rolling Stone Magazine declaring that Petty and his eternal Heartbreakers return to the scrappy heat of those early days with their toughest, most straight-up rocking record in many years, deepened by veteran perspective. In recent years, Petty went back to his roots, reuniting his first band, Mudcrutch, to cut the album they never got the chance to make back in the early 1970s. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers previous release, Mojo, carried with it the spirit of the Mudcrutch sessions. Mojo featured the sound of a band playing together in a room not a studio facing each other, all singing and playing at the same time. The music is alive, with no overdubs or studio trickery. With this album, I want to show other people what I hear with the band, Petty said in a press release from Big Hassle Media. Mojo is where the band lives when its playing for itself. Following the 1976 debut album Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers released a string of studio albums including Youre Gonna Get It! (1978), Damn the Torpedoes (1979), Hard Promises (1981), Long After Dark (1982), Southern Accents (1985), Let Me Up (Ive Had Enough) (1987), Into The Great Wide Open (1991), Songs and Music from Shes The One (1996), Echo (1999), The Last DJ (2002), Mojo (2010) and Hypnotic Eye (2014). Petty also released several albums as Tom Petty such as Full Moon Fever (1989), Wildflowers (1994) and Highway Companion (2006) which still featured members of The Heartbreakers as studio musicians as well as outside musicians such as George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Jeff Lynne. Also performing at the Sept. 21 show will be Steve Winwood. Beginning with The Spencer Davis Group at age 15, extending through Traffic and Blind Faith to a landmark Grammy-award winning solo career, Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock n roll for more than five decades. He is a respected innovator who has helped to create some of the genres most celebrated achievements. As a multi-instrumentalist with unmistakable vocals, he continues to deliver inspirational performances of his diverse catalog.

This event takes place concurrently with Arts Alive/Free Museum Day, and admission to the adjacent Dal Museum is free for Pinellas County residents from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Non-Pinellas residents receive a coupon for free admission on a return visit. Artists featured at CARMADA include Sebastian Coolidge, Derek Donnelly, James Oleson, Stephen Palladino, Hunter Payne, Joshua Pearson and Carrie Boucher of the NOMAD Art Bus. Ferman BMW will display a custom-painted BMW and two graphicwrapped Mini Coopers alongside other colorful vehicles. While artists transform new cars into mobile artwork live on site, visitors can learn about the State of the Arts specialty license plate, and feast from food trucks like St. Pete Taco Lady as DJ Blenda spins. Purchasing the State of the Arts plate (available at Pinellas Tax Collectors Offices for $20) directly supports regional arts since that purchase price is distributed back to each countys local arts agency, which in Pinellas County is Creative Pinellas. Community partners represented at the festival with booths and crafts include The Dali Museum, Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, Dunedin Fine Art Center, the Museum of Fine Arts St. Pete, Keep Saint Petersburg Local, WMNF 88.5 FM, Creative Loafing, and the Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office. A $5 suggested donation at the door includes all free craft activities. CARMADA event proceeds jointly benefit Creative Pinellas, Class Acts Performance Series for school children, and professional local artists. Parking is available in the Dali Museum lot and Mahaffey Theater garage, in downtown city garages and lots, and at on-street metered parking throughout the city. Guests can also ride the St. Petersburg Trolley Downtown Looper and the Central Avenue Trolley routes to the Dali Museum. Trolley service begins downtown at 10 a.m. For more information, visit www.loopertrolley.com. CARMADA is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. For more information, email Mitzi Gordon at director@creative pinellas.org. CARMADA, set for Sept. 27 at the Plaza at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts, will present custom art cars by local artists and live art car painting. This Ferman BMW, custom painted by artists Sebastian Coolidge and James Oleson, will be included in the display.A Walk Among the TombstonesGenre: Thriller Cast: Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, David Harbour and Boyd Holbrook Director: Scott Frank Rated: R Universal Based on Lawrence Blocks bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.IcemanGenre: Action, adventure and fantasy Cast: Donnie Yen, Simon Yam, Wang Baoqiang and Eva Huang Director: Law Wing-cheong Rated: R A Ming Dynasty palace guard wrongly accused of a murder is being hunted by his three sworn brothers and all four get accidentally buried OPENING, from page 1B Photo by ATSUSHI NISHIJIMABased on Lawrence Blocks bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law.What better challenge, then, to set for herself, than to walk seventeen hundred miles from the central Australian city of Alice Springs to the west coast. Its not something she can hope to do alone though. Firstly, she needs some camels to help her cross the desert and she spends two years training the animals that will be carrying nine months of supplies for her. Secondly, she needs money to support herself during the odyssey; National Geographic magazine agrees to sponsor her, on the condition that its photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) can catch up with her a few times along the way to take photos. Tracks follows the real-life story of the unlikely adventurer who became known as the camel lady as she attempts the unthinkable feat, while trying to avoid the inevitable attention it is sure to attract.The Zero TheoremGenre: Drama Cast: Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Mlanie Thierry, David Thewlis and Lucas Hedges Director: Terry Gilliam Rated: R Acclaimed director Terry Gilliam returns with the visually stunning sci-fi epic The Zero Theorem, starring Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius. Living in isolation, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life or the complete lack of one once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesnt fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mlanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), its only when he experiences the power of love and desire that hes able to understand his own reason for being.

Pictures and Alcon Entertainments Dolphin Tale 2 opened in theaters across the country Sept. 12, taking in an estimated $16.6 million on its first weekend putting it at the No. 2 position for earnings according to Box Office Mojo (www.boxofficemojo.com), an online movie publication and box office reporting service. With an MPAA rating of PG and a runtime of 107 minutes, Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and rehabilitation thanks to the invention of a groundbreaking prosthetic tail made her a symbol of perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale. Both the original movie and the sequel were filmed on location in Clearwater. The film reunites the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble, Kris Kristofferson, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Austin Stowell, Austin Highsmith and Oscar winner Morgan Freeman. The remarkable dolphin Winter returns as herself. Charles Martin Smith, who directed Dolphin Tale, wrote and directed the sequel. In Dolphin Tale 2, several years have passed since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick Jr.), rescued Winter, a young dolphin who lost her tail after being entangled in a crab trap. Against all odds and with the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the dolphin, Winters life was saved. In turn, she helped save the aquarium as people came from far and wide to see the courageous dolphin firsthand, enabling CMA to greatly expand their mission to rescue, rehabilitate and, when possible, release injured animals. Yet their fight is not over. Winters surrogate mother, the elderly dolphin Panama, passes away, leaving Winter alone and grieving, unwilling to engage with anyone, even her best friend, Sawyer. The loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for CMA. The USDA warns Clay they will have to move Winter from the aquarium because regulations require these social creatures to be paired. If the aquarium cant find a female companion for her one that she accepts CMA will lose their beloved Winter. But as time runs out, there may still be Hope Reprising their roles, Kristofferson plays Clays father, Reed; Zuehlsdorff is Clays teenage daughter, Hazel; Judd returns as Sawyers mom, Lorraine; Stowell plays Sawyers cousin, Kyle; and Highsmith is Winters lead trainer, Phoebe. Champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who herself has been an example of courage, also appears in the film. Oscar nominees Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson produced the film, together with Richard Ingber, Alcon president of worldwide marketing, who brought the first project to the company, and Steven P. Wegner. David Yates and Robert Engelman served as executive producers. The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Daryn Okada, production designer David J. Bomba, editor Harvey Rosenstock, and costume designer Hope Hanafin. The score was composed by Oscar winner Rachel Portman. Inspired by true events, Dolphin Tale 2 was filmed at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the nonprofit rescue and rehabilitation facility that Winter calls home. It is now also home to Hope, the baby dolphin that was rescued the very night of the first films wrap party. As the cast, filmmakers, crew and CMA staff celebrated the completion of photography on Dolphin Tale, CMA received word of a baby dolphin that had been rescued and was on its way to the facility, though she was so young there were fears she would not survive the trip. When the van carrying the newly named Hope arrived at CMA, several members of the cast and filmmaking team were on hand to witness her being hand carried to the pool a scene closely re-created in the film. Hope not only survived but, thanks to the efforts of the CMA team, thrived. Like Winter, Hope can never be released to the wild, as she was too young to have learned the life skills necessary for survival. Instead, the two dolphins have formed their own small pod and become part of the family at CMA, where they inspire visitors from all over the globe. Several cast members discussed their experiences filming in Pinellas and at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in interviews recorded during the films production and provided by Warner Bros. to promote the film. Its very special to be a guest of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, said Ashley Judd in a soundbite. Judd plays Lorraine Nelson. Im very aware of the fact that we are guests and they are here to work. The animals are always their priority and I admire them so much for that. Harry Connick Jr. praised the laid-back atmosphere of the Florida setting. Im wearing shorts and flip-flops and a T-shirt, he said. Its a very relaxed, easy feel. Were shooting in Clearwater, Fla., were in the South, the weathers great these are all things that affect you, one way or another. Were around incredible animals inspirational animals and beautiful animals and the people who work with them are some of the most inspirational, hard-working people Ive met in any walk of life. Cozi Zuehlsdorff talked about the first time she met Hope long before the script for Dolphin Tale 2 had been written. We wrapped Dolphin Tale and were sitting there at the wrap party I had literally wrapped two hours before, so Im kind of sad, kind of happy, Zuehlsdorff said. Suddenly, a few of the staff members start leaving. Were like, whats going on? She relates how one of the CMA staff members explained that a dolphin had washed up on a beach. Its pretty amazing to have been there the night that Hope was rescued, she said. Everyone is just reliving it and reveling in how crazy it is that the end of our wrap party was the beginning of our sequel. David Yates, an executive producer of the film and CEO of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, talked about how the first film affected CMA. The best part is the amount of kids that weve reached now, he said. With Winters story, the essence is its not just about her tail, its about her impact on lives. She literally has changed so many lives in a very direct, profound way. That went from a few people to literally millions. We still get letters by the thousands every month. We get emails. We get calls from families around the world that say this is what Winter meant to my child, Yates said. The most compelling part of our work that got kind of blown up is inspiring so many kids around the world. Shooting for Dolphin Tale 2 took place in fall 2013. Following on the widespread success of 2011s Dolphin Tale filmed in Clearwater, the destination welcomed the return of the all-star original cast on Oct. 6, 2013, with the addition of Hope the dolphin. These films join a growing list of movies, commercials and music videos filmed in Pinellas. According to a press release from the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, following the positive experience filming Dolphin Tale on location in Clearwater in 2010, Alcon Entertainments glowing reviews about filming in the area has bolstered St. Pete/Clearwaters reputation as a world-class location for film production. The bureau lists a number of movies that were filmed in the area recently, including Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey, Spring Breakers starring Selena Gomez, and Sunlight Jr. starring Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon. Several cast members from Dolphin Tale 2 attended the Sept. 10 premiere at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Walking the blue carpet at the Clearwater venue were Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, Austin Highsmith and Austin Stowell. Also attending were Charles Martin Smith, director, and David Yates, an executive producer of the film and CEO of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.SuperTicket offer Regal Entertainment Group, a leading motion picture exhibitor owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States, is celebrating the opening of Warner Bros.

Born in Miami in 1963, Morris began writing songs and playing instruments at age 6. It wasnt until he was 15, however, that he picked up the guitar. Morris went to Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, earning a bachelors degree in 1984. He and fellow Eckerd students including Alan Craig, Devin Rice, Sue Finger and Dave Bawel formed the band Lotus. The band released an album of original music in 1984. He next joined a band called Cheers, playing cruise ships, before returning to St. Petersburg to play the Florida club circuit as a solo artist or as part of a band. During the early 1990s, he appeared at some of the states best blues clubs such as The Ringside, Skippers Smokehouse, the Bamboo Room and the Bradfordville Blues Club. Beginning in 1992, Morris and his band began building a fan following in Europe. In 1998, he released his first blues CD, Bluer Than Thou, featuring 10 original selections as well as one by pianist Gary Doyle. The album includes such future classics as Mr. Miracle, Cant Stop Cleanin and No Mo Money. This weeks concert is sponsored by Barnhorn Financial. Charlie Morris performs Sept. 19 at Seminole City Park as part of the citys Music in the Park series.
