CLEARWATER - The best advice a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist could give for coping with Pinellas County’s coyote population is to learn how to live with them.

Angeline Scotten, FWC senior wildlife assistant biologist, told Pinellas County Commissioners April 7 that she gets more calls about coyotes from Pinellas County than the other 12 counties she covers.

“I don’t know if that is because there are more coyotes here or that there are more people to see the coyotes or maybe it is a little bit of both,” she said.

Scotten described coyotes as an “emerging nuisance wildlife species.” She said bears are the state’s No. 1 problem with coyotes being considered No. 2. Others are raccoons, snakes, bats and iguanas.

She makes about three presentations a month in the county to homeowner’s associations and other community groups. One of the top questions from the public is why coyotes have made Florida their home.

Coyotes did not live in the state when the colonists first arrived. But there were red wolves, which were successfully eradicated throughout the state.

“The red wolf is gone,” she said. “Without the red wolf as a predator, it allowed coyotes to move into the state of Florida.”

SEMINOLE - As Seminole Elementary School’s centennial celebration set for Saturday, May 2 approaches, the school has been ramping up efforts to get the campus ready for the big day.

The majority of the work has been done on the original building, constructed in 1915, said principal Diane Cato. New windows, especially made to match the style of the historic building, with shades that open from the side rather than vertically, have been installed.

“Because it’s an historical building, we wanted them to be as much like the original windows as they could be,” Cato said.

DUNEDIN - A volunteer organization hopes to bring home to Dunedin a rare landing craft that played an important role in U.S. offensive operations during World War II.

The Dunedin LVT Preservation Group is seeking contributions to buy one of the few remaining World War II Landing Vehicles Tracked and place it at VFW Post 2550 as a tribute to the inventor, the men who used it and the city of Dunedin, where the amphibious vehicles were first produced.

“We have done all the groundwork, we’ve laid all the seeds we have to, and we just really haven’t had the time to get the information out and to raise the necessary funds,” said City Commissioner John Tornga, a spokesman for the group.

Distracted driving crashes in Florida have increased 25 percent since 2012. Even though teens represent only five percent of licensed drivers, they were responsible for 12 percent of distracted driving crashes. Drivers aged 20-29 were responsible for 31 percent of crashes.
