Everyone is invited to take part in a national moment of remembrance Monday, May 25, 3 p.m., to pay respect to those who died while serving in the U.S. military.

Since the American Revolution in 1775, more than a million men and women, and their families, have paid the ultimate price while in service to their country. Memorial Day is a time to honor that service.

Memorial Day grew out of a movement that started in 1868. Decoration Day, as it was called back then, was a time to decorate the graves of those who died during the Civil War with flowers. After the end of World War I in 1918, Congress changed the name to Memorial Day and declared it a national holiday to be observed on the last Monday in May. Memorial Day became a time to honor all military personnel who died in American wars - not just the Civil War.

More children die in Florida from drowning than any other state, according to the state Department of Health.

“Annually in Florida, enough children to fill three to four preschool classrooms drown and do not live to see their fifth birthday,” according to information at FloridaHealth.gov.

LARGO - The 10 swimmers stand poised at the end of the pool as the music begins, setting them diving and jumping into the water in rhythm.

In a pool that is 18 feet deep, they swim to the music, stroking and freezing in time with each others’ movements. Their feet and arms paddle fiercely beneath the surface, but what emerges from the water are smiles and arched arms, pointed toes and striking poses. They hold each other up in near pyramids and fly through the air like dolphins, boosted by the mere strength of their fellow teammates.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners are considering an investment in the Local Arts Agency.

Creative Pinellas Executive Director Mitzi Gordon talked about the agency’s vision during a May 12 budget hearing. She based her request for renewed funding on statistics showing the economic and social impact of art and culture.

It has been many years since the county contributed General Fund dollars to arts and culture. The former Department of Cultural Affairs dissolved during the Great Recession. Money left in the account, about $300,000 went to Creative Pinellas in 2012, as seed money to take over as the Local Arts Agency, an independent nonprofit organization.
