CLEARWATER - Last year when Pinellas County implemented its surface water assessment fee for unincorporated residents, some complained.

But this year, an overflow crowd showed up to protest after some received bills as much as 340 percent higher. Nearly all were residents of mobile home parks.

Kelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager, explained that last year’s bills were incorrect - incomplete. This year’s assessments are more accurate. They were calculated using data from digitized images, showing all the impervious surfaces inside the different parks, including roads, swimming pools, patios, shuffleboard courts and other structures besides the mobile homes.

Assessments that are more accurate allow the county to capture the best revenue stream based on the amount of runoff from each property. Rainwater and water from sprinklers flow out onto the ground, which becomes saturated. The excess water, or runoff, continues onto sidewalks and streets, picking up pollutants as it then flows into storm drains, ponds, ditches and on into the county’s waterways and Gulf of Mexico.

ST. PETE BEACH - An Indiana couple renewed their wedding vows Sept. 14 on St. Pete Beach with a ring they thought was lost forever.

Right after his wife Rachel Naylor, 35, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2011, Bart Naylor, 41, had a special wedding ring engraved to let her know of his steadfast commitment to their marriage.

The stainless-steel band inscribed with “Bart and Rachel” to show that they would always be one no matter what happened, Bart Naylor said.

CLEARWATER - The entire student population of Paul B. Stephens School in Clearwater, all 220 students, are special needs students. All have some sort of physical or mental disability, which means they require special help to learn.

The majority of the students at the school are autistic and teaching those children often requires special equipment, which - although necessary - is expensive. That’s where Vera Sheremeta, an Occupational Therapist at the school, comes in. She has been out in the community telling all who will listen about why the equipment is needed.
