BAY PINES - The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System will host a medical center renaming ceremony in honor of the late Congressman C.W. Bill Young on April 25, at 10 a.m.

The public ceremony will take place at the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center in Bay Pines in the courtyard located between Building 37 and Building 2.

U.S. House of Representatives Bill 3302 was signed into law (Public Law 113-49) by President Barack Obama Nov. 13, 2013. The law officially changed the name of the facility from the Bay Pines VA Medical Center to the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center in honor of the Congressman’s work on behalf of Veterans and their families during his 22 terms as a member of Congress.

Congressman Young passed away on Oct. 18, 2013 at the age of 82 and was laid to rest at the Bay Pines National Cemetery on Oct. 24.

“We look forward to hosting this wonderful event to honor the legacy of a longtime partner and ardent advocate of the men and women we serve across southwest Florida,” said Suzanne M. Klinker, director, Bay Pines VAHCS. “Congressman Young’s impact during his more than 50 years in public office and work on behalf our nation’s heroes will forever be remembered inside and outside the walls of our medical center,” she said.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners voted against staff’s recommendation April 15, after listening to Tierra Verde residents’ overwhelming support for a five-year fire service contract with Lealman.

County staff had proposed a two-year extension to accommodate potential changes coming to delivery of emergency medical services. Tierra Verde residents and Lealman Fire & Rescue preferred going with the five-year extension. The initial contract was signed Aug. 18, 2009.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners ordered staff to pay the back taxes owed to Pasco County on Cross Bar and Al Bar ranches during an April 15 meeting. They also approved a long-overdue contract with local hospitals for indigent health care.

It was a day for controversial issues, starting with a unanimous vote to fire the county administrator.

Then after regular business concluded during the afternoon portion of the meeting, Commissioner Norm Roche made two proposals about the county’s ranch lands in Pasco County. First, he wanted an ordinance to require two public hearings and a supermajority vote of the commission to sell the ranches. Second, he wanted staff to pay the past-due taxes on the land.

Pasco County recently approached the county about purchasing one or both ranches. The majority of the commission voted against selling. County Attorney Jim Bennett said an ordinance could be written to provide requirements similar to those in place for sell of regional parks. The consensus of the commission was against moving forward.

CLEARWATER - With little discussion April 15, Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a consultant’s plan for replacement of Beckett Bridge over Whitcomb Bayou in Tarpon Springs.

The decision was a long time coming. Officials have been looking for a way to solve problems with the aging bridge since January 2011 - the start date of a PD&E study by the county and Florida Department of Transportation.

MADEIRA BEACH - The city of Madeira Beach’s building department has apparently become the major moneymaker that had been predicted when it was created, just a year and a half ago.

The department’s revenue producing status was evident at the April 8 City Commission meeting, when a resolution was passed increasing the budgeted building permit revenue for the current fiscal year by $260,000. Another resolution took out $15,000 in expenses to run the building department.
