CLEARWATER - Less than a week before baseball spring training begins, the Philadelphia Phillies and Clearwater Threshers minor league affiliate showed off their offseason upgrades to Bright House Field.

The most prominent change is the new high definition scoreboard in left-center field, standing at 27 feet high and 31 feet wide and 300,000 pixels. The scoreboard, which is almost twice as large as its predecessor, was designed with better viewing angles and a superior performance in the sun, a common problem in outdoor stadiums. The “ribbon” display over the first base dugout, 4 feet high and 26 feet wide, is also larger than the previous scoreboard.

Both displays are capable of showing live game action, highlights and replays, line scores, real-time data and in-game statistics, live fan cams, speed of pitch and unlimited sponsor/advertisement opportunities.

“You’re going to see quite an upgrade,” said John Timberlake, the director of Florida operations for the Philliies and the general manager of the Threshers.

Law enforcement agencies will be out enforcing the state’s drinking age laws and working to keep impaired drivers off the roads.

REDINGTON SHORES - Firefighters from six Pinellas County fire departments responded to a structure fire at Anglers Cove Condominium, 174 Gulf Blvd. in Redington Shores, just after 8 a.m. March 3.

When they arrived, the building was already being evacuated and light smoke was visible coming from the north side of the building on the ground floor.

Firefighters from city of Seminole Fire Rescue, Madeira Beach and Pinellas Suncoast fire departments made “rapid attack,” according to a report from Seminole Fire Rescue. The firefighters then found that a fire in a storage room, adjacent to the condominium office, had been extinguished by the building’s sprinkler system.

CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners voted, 4-3, Feb. 24 to deny a request for a zoning and land use change for an assisted living facility in Seminole.

Commissioners denied a similar request from the same ALF on Aug. 19, 2014.

In August, the applicant, Gib Properties LLC, requested a zoning and land use change to allow Oak Tree Manor to build an expansion on an adjacent parcel of land on De Long Way and Park Boulevard. The applicant modified its latest request, proposing to build a wing on the same parcel the facility is currently located on and use the adjacent property as grass parking.
