TAMPA - Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo recently welcomed the arrival of two African serval kittens who will serve as outreach animal ambassadors for their species.

The 10-week-old felines were born in March in Boise, Idaho, and relocated to Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo in June aboard Southwest Airlines, snuggled inside a crate resting on a passenger seat between two (human) handlers in the main cabin.

The charismatic kittens weighed only about a half pound each at birth and were hand-raised together by zookeepers. At eight weeks, they made the 2,000 mile journey to Tampa where they continue to receive around-the-clock care from the Zoo’s animal outreach educators. The frisky felines are currently weaning from the bottle to a meat-based diet and have grown increasingly more active and playful.

As outreach educational animals, the servals will not be on exhibit within the Zoo, however, trainers will be working with the animals at noon daily in a temporary habitat to allow guests to see these captivating cats up close while learning more about them. Zoo trainers will use operant conditioning and positive reinforcement training to encourage the cats to walk on a lead and demonstrate natural behaviors like leaping high in the air, pouncing, chasing and carrying objects.

The kids are out of school and if you are like me, you are looking for fun things to do that won’t cost you ton.

Every year I browse the paper, Internet and flyers sent home from school to find some of the best and cheapest things to do. Here are some of the activities I’ve done with my two girls over the years, and a few new ones I’ve found.

My kids love going to the movies, but they can be so expensive. During the summer, you can go to the movies for $1. This is part of the Regal Summer Movie Express. It runs for nine weeks starting June 10 in our area. The movies are Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Will Rogers Institute.

Classic Albums Live: Creedence Clearwater Revival: Chronicle
Classic Albums Live performs “Creedence Clearwater Revival: Chronicle,” Sunday, July 27, 7:30 p.m., at The Capitol, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com.

Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles including “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “Lodi,” “Susie Q,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Travelin’ Band,” “Fortunate Son,” “Down On The Corner,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Proud Mary.”

Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it faithfully from the original recording.

They have been greatly influenced by the likes of Pat Metheny and Chick Corea. Both attended the illustrious Berklee College of Music in Boston, with its superlative jazz program.
