Pinellas County voters have a number of decisions to make by Election Day - Aug. 26.

Voter registration paves the way. Currently, 617,504 registered voters in the county - 219,477 Republicans, 223,638 Democrats and 174,389 other. Residents who aren’t yet registered have until Monday, July 28, to do so.

July 28 also is the deadline to change political party affiliations.

Florida is a “closed primary” state. Only voters registered with a political party may vote in that party’s primary, explains Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark. All registered voters may vote on the county referendum question and nonpartisan races on the Primary ballot, including judicial and school board races.

LARGO - Logan Hofstetter, 11, like any competitive surfer, pays close attention to weather patterns, winds and storms. Catching waves big enough for him to surf can be a bit of a challenge - based, as he is from Largo, closest to the often-lackluster Gulf waves.

But it’s nothing Logan’s focused self-motivation can’t handle. He and his father, Mike Hofstetter, travel to prime surfing spots on both Florida’s west and east coasts to catch the best waves. They’re usually trekking across the state on the weekends.

“It’s nothing for me to ... get 20 texts: ‘The wind’s blowing.’ ‘When are we going?’ ‘Where are we going?’ ‘The truck’s loaded.’ ‘Let’s go.’ ‘I don’t care about your meeting.’ ‘Let’s move,’ ” Mike explained with a smile. “Things of that nature is what we deal with.”

Mike and his wife, Debbie, are proud of their son and his determination. And they admit that they had a part in his love for the beach.

“We’ve always been water people,” said Debbie. “Logan’s been in the water since he was a baby.”

DUNEDIN - City officials continue to talk to the Toronto Blue Jays about the team’s needs for spring training, including the possibility of building a new stadium on 22 acres off Patricia Avenue.

The Jays’ contract with Dunedin expires Dec. 30, 2017, and city officials hope to get a commitment from the Jays for at least another 20 years.

In a memo City Parks and Recreation Director Vince Gizzi said city officials and Jays executives discussed expanding training facilities at a meeting March 24. After further discussion a suggestion came up that 375 Patricia Avenue, known as the former Neilson property, would make a better site to meet the needs of the Blue Jays.

LARGO - The second anniversary of the Barley Mow Brewing Company July 19 was a testament to the success of a business with humble beginnings, at a time when the business is expanding.

The brewery, at 518 West Bay Drive, began in a home, when Jay and Colleen Dingman started brewing beer for their personal consumption. And while home brewing is fairly common, the growth of the resulting business however is not.
