CLEARWATER - It was nothing but good news as representatives from Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce updated Pinellas County Commissioners about the continued success of its Dolphin Trail project.

Commission Chair John Morroni introduced Carol Haig, chamber president and CEO, Bob Clifford, senior vice president of tourism and economic development, and Anita Treiser, tourism marketing consultant and Dolphin Trail project manager, who did most of the talking for the group.

“I need to tell you what an impact this project has had throughout Pinellas County and beyond,” Treiser told the commission during their April 7 meeting.

Morroni gave a brief overview of the project that features about 150 6-foot dolphin sculptures decorated by mostly local artists located throughout the county and beyond that make up the trail.

“We’re proud that our own courthouse here in downtown Clearwater recently became part of that trail with the Playing on the Water dolphin,” he said.

The county’s dolphin is located on the northwest corner of the courthouse at 315 Court St. Morroni welcomes everyone to come by to see it.

PALM HARBOR - Mastering the art of motherhood, work and community is no small feat but that’s exactly what one Palm Harbor woman has successfully tackled.

As an active and integral member on the board of directors for several major environmental groups in Pinellas County, Barbara Walker completely combines her three passions - environmentalism, social leadership and the simple joy of bird watching.

It has been said that every woman’s journey is her own and Walker’s first steps to this point began on a very solemn and special day, over a decade ago.

DUNEDIN - City commissioners will be asked next month to raise boat-launching fees to offset the cost of providing additional parking on the east side of Edgewater Drive for users of the Dunedin Marina.

City commissioners voted 5-0 April 9 to lease property owned by the Church of the Good Shepherd on Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays for vehicles with boat trailers. The three-year agreement stems from lack of parking spaces at the marina, which can accommodate 17 trailers. The city’s annual cost to lease the parking lot will be $4,200.

TALLAHASSEE - Keep your hands on the wheel, eyes on the road and mind on driving -- that’s the message the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Florida Department of Transportation want motorists to remember this April during Distracted Driver Awareness Month.

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.

“If you are not 100 percent focused, then you’re not 100 percent driving,” said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “Troopers around the state will continue to educate motorists on the dangers of distracted driving for the safety of all who share our roadways.”
