SEMINOLE - As a former mayor, lawyer, business executive and mother, Jody Armstrong has dealt with challenges in her life. But none were as scary as dealing with a tumor found near her pancreas. Her upper digestive tract is gone.

Nevertheless, Armstrong, 57, exudes enthusiasm and warmth in conversation. Perhaps, in her words, that’s because every day is a gift.

SEMINOLE - After more than a decade of planning, construction of Fire Station 32 was completed this spring. Seminole Fire Rescue celebrated the new building, located at 10870 110th Ave. N., with a ribbon cutting April 21.

The 7,200 square-foot, state-of-the-art building is an improvement over the original fire station, which was built by volunteers in 1969 and stood at the same location, said Chief Heather Burford.

“The previous building was older and no longer really met our needs,” she said. “So that building was completely torn down.”

CLEARWATER - When disease strikes an individual, it cannot only affect the individual, but the entire family.

In the United States, the National Cancer Institute estimated that 1,685,210 new cases of cancer would be diagnosed in 2016 alone. Women with Purpose seeks to make this battle a little bit easier.

The primarily northern Pinellas County organization centralized in Clearwater is a nonprofit committed to helping families with nonmedical assistance, providing financial aid to cover the basic necessities. They do some work in Hillsborough as well.

TARPON SPRINGS - On Wednesday, April 12, members of the art community, Tarpon Springs residents and city officials both past and present, came out to the Heritage Museum to honor Kathy Monahan as she leaves her position with Tarpon Arts.

The speakers were numerous, and their relationship to Kathy varied. What stood as a constant was their high praise for Monahan.

Artist Christopher Still presented Kathy with a painting.

Former Tarpon Springs Mayor David O. Archie, though happy she will finally have time for a break, said Monahan was leaving her position with some unfinished business.

DUNEDIN - Continued development in the city of Dunedin may give rise to a second parking garage downtown.

Dunedin officials consider four to five of their parking lot leases to be unstable, raising concerns at the City Commission’s April 20 meeting about an eventual shortage of parking spaces.

Manager Julie Ward Bujalski asked staff to provide estimates on the cost of building a one-deck garage on the city’s parking lot at 500 Wood St.

She wants to be able to understand staff’s findings before the commissioners are asked to make a decision in September on whether to continue their parking pilot program, which took effect in October.

LARGO - Few people love the sport of hockey as much as Danielle Faries. She’s a goalie who never met a game of hockey she didn’t like.

She plays in the Florida Women’s League, she plays with men’s teams and she travels across the state regularly to play with a team based in Fort Lauderdale.

Faries, 31, began playing hockey when she was 13. She started because she couldn’t resist what she saw.

“I remember watching hockey on TV and thought goalies looked cool,” she said. “There was an outdoor rink near where I lived in Largo so I began playing roller hockey, and then when I went to college I played ice hockey.”

CLEARWATER - Officer Lenshawn Price, a member of the Clearwater Police Department, was recently honored by the Pinellas County School District as School Resource Officer of the Year.

She’s spent nine of her 17 years with the CPD as the SRO of Oak Grove Middle School.

Instead, she was surprised with the award by Dan Slaughter, CPD police chief, and Rick Stelljes, chief of the school district’s police department.

CLEARWATER - Ever since Michele Smith burst onto the national scene more than two decades ago, the two-time Olympic gold medalist and longtime ESPN softball analyst said she regularly gets recognized for two things - her iconic hairstyle and her softball success.

But while her ringed blonde locks and wicked riseball helped catapult her to international superstardom after she led Team USA to consecutive gold medals in 1996 and 2000, Smith has remained firmly connected to the greater Clearwater area, a place she used to visit as a kid and where she now donates a great deal of her time to promoting the sport.
