BELLEAIR - Town fathers like to say that Belleair is a family-oriented community that it is a safe place to live with amenities for young and old alike.

The poster boy for their claims could well be retired U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Joe Oder who moved to the community a year ago and now says he and his wife Pat would not want to be anywhere else.

“We absolutely love it. It is the best thing we’ve ever done,” he said. “You have the small community life but are close to the big city. You have accessibility to the big life while living the small life.”

As a career military man Oder, 70, and his family was never in the same spot for long. When he retired 18 years ago he and Pat moved to Destin. It was the first time in their 46 years of marriage that they set down roots.

It was a happy time for them until their daughter, Josette Oder Moynihan, pushed those grandparent buttons and got them to move.

“She had moved to Belleair with her family, including two of our grandchildren and wanted us to move closer,” said Oder. “She said growing up as a military child she never had grandparents in her life and she didn’t want that to happen to her children.”

LARGO - For almost five years, Cynthia Harrington of Largo has provided a safe place for butterflies to lay their eggs, thrive as caterpillars and stay sheltered until they emerge from their protective chrysalises.

She’s watched more than 1,540 young butterflies flutter away on new wings. Once, while she was tending the various butterfly-friendly plants around her home, a monarch butterfly laid its eggs on a sprig of milkweed she was holding in her hand.

CLEARWATER - For years, Pinellas County kept a pot of money to help people with emergency financial needs. It was part of its arsenal to prevent homelessness.

But the program fell victim to the budget axe wielded by previous county administrator Bob LaSala.

“We went many years without an emergency fund,” County Administrator Mark Woodard said March 24 during a presentation about a new pilot program that will restore money to provide a one-time hand up for those in need.

BELLEAIR - Just two weeks after Indian Rocks Road was re-opened when the roundabout construction was completed, it was closed again.

Florida Department of Transportation engineers discovered that the roadway over the little bridge at Roebling Road north on the northern end of Indian Rocks Road was damaged and needed to be fixed. Town officials had to close the bridge to do the repairs.

Town Manager Micah Maxwell said the problem was caused by a leak in a water pipe that was under the roadway as it crossed the bridge. The water caused the damage to the road and it has to be fixed.

Committee passes low-ball condo buyouts legislation
TALLAHASSEE - Working to stop the heartache and financial ruin experienced by condominium owners throughout Florida, the Senate Regulated Industries Committee today unanimously approved legislation March 24 by Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, that helps close loopholes exploited by bulk buyers of condo units.

An oversight in legislation, which became law in 2007, allowed bulk buying of condo units to gain control of condo developments, convert the units to apartments and then force remaining tenants to take pennies on the dollar for the value of their home.
