CLEARWATER - Thousands of spectators lined Clearwater Beach, both on shore and in boats on the water, to watch the Clearwater Super Boat National Championship Sunday, Sept. 28, after a weekend full of other fun and entertainment.

LARGO - After hearing a volley of public opinion on the matter, it was Largo Commissioner Curtis Holmes’ own response that prompted his fellow elected officials to back away from censuring him for inappropriate use of a city-issued iPad.

Holmes spoke against the advice of his attorney, who argued in his client’s defense for ten minutes during the public hearing Sept. 30. But Holmes said he couldn’t help himself but to give an explanation.

ST. PETERSBURG - Pinellas County Utilities crews have stopped the flow of wastewater that was leaking from a sewer main on 62nd Avenue North in St. Petersburg.

According to a post of the Pinellas County’s Facebook page, crews shut down the flow just after 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Officials attribute heavy rains for the rupture of a sewer main about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27. The line, at 7780 62nd Ave. N. in St. Petersburg, carries wastewater to the South Cross Bayou Water Reclamation Facility. Approximately 250 to 500 gallons of wastewater a minute had been flowing into Joe’s Creek.

CLEARWATER - In an admittedly unusual move, Pinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel asked fellow commissioners to select a new vice chair and chair early this year.

Seel brought the matter before the board Sept. 23. She said although the next year’s chair and vice chair are usually selected in November, she would like to pick earlier than that.

She said the early selection was needed since vice chair Susan Latvala was not running for re-election and normally, the vice chair moved into the chair’s position. That won’t be happening next year.

CLEARWATER - With little discussion, Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a 10-year lease agreement with the Palm Harbor Historical Society for the Judge Hartley Homestead.

Pinellas County purchased the Hartley Homestead in 1996 as part of a project to widen the Belcher Road corridor. Not all the land was needed for the road project, so the commission designated the Hartley house located on the property as part of Heritage Village. Palm Harbor Museum was established, and the Palm Harbor Historical Society was granted use of the premises.

CLEARWATER - Crabby Bill’s restaurant on Clearwater Beach has been in the same location for 15 years and the operators of the business want it to stay that way. But there are no guarantees because the city recently made it known that they would be calling for a request for proposals for the property.

The request for proposals means the city wants to explore what others may have in mind for the location. Greg Powers, the managing partner of the Clearwater Beach Crabby Bill’s, 37 Causeway Blvd., has made it clear that they want to stay and would be willing to go the extra mile to do so.
