Caladesi State Park in Dunedin ranks No. 9 on the Top 10 List of U.S. beaches released May 26 by Dr. Stephen Leatherman.

Leatherman, a professor at Florida International University, better known as Dr. Beach, has been making his top 10 list for 26 years. He uses a long list of 50 criteria to pick the top 10, including water, sand quality, safety, management, presence of lifeguards, noise, amenities and others.

New this year is a bonus for beaches that prohibit smoking. More emphasis is being placed on environmental management and beach safety. According to a press release, the list of best beaches is “beginning anew, so all beaches have a chance of making the list.”

According to the Florida Department of Health, Florida loses more children under age 5 to drowning than any other state. Most drownings of children ages 1-4 occur in residential swimming pools.

“Drowning can be a silent catastrophe, one that can happen in the few minutes you take to answer a phone call or run inside for a towel,” say officials with the FDOH.

Pool safety is a must-do to prevent tragedy.

Florida had the highest unintentional drowning rate in the nation for children age 1-4, and the second highest drowning rate in the nation for ages 1-14, according to FDOH statistics from 2013.

Pinellas County residents have lots of choices when it comes to summertime fun, but top of the list has got to be the beach.

The county boasts 35 miles of white sandy beaches and almost 588 miles of coastline. Many of its beaches have won national awards, including Clearwater Beach, St. Pete Beach, Fort DeSoto Park and Caladesi Island State Park.

Not all beaches have lifeguards, so if swimming is your main interest, the best bets include Clearwater Beach, Sand Key Beach, Fort De Soto Park’s north beach and Fred Howard Beach, which all have lifeguards on duty during the day during the summer months.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - The city of Indian Rocks Beach fiercely protects its heritage and aura of the days when all there were in town were cottages, beach cottages, along the shoreline. The cottages not only provided shelter, but also access to the beach for all the residents and visitors to the community.

Over the years developers tried and failed to build high-rise condominiums, thwarted time and time again by city commissions determined to keep the status quo.

Yet as time went on, it became apparent the commission would need the help of residents who had to show that the decision to restrict development on the west side of Gulf Boulevard was the right one.

CLEARWATER - The Clearwater Marine Aquarium can move forward with plans to expand its current facility following a judge’s ruling last week that rejected a challenge by an Island Estates resident.

Administrative Law Judge Bram D.E. Canter rejected resident Peter Kohut’s claim that the city of Clearwater failed to give adequate notice of the aquarium’s plan to expand its facility.

During an appeal hearing held last month, a lawyer representing the Kohut Family Trust argued that the city and aquarium met the barest minimum standards by only notifying residents within 200 feet of the property, as required by law.
