CLEARWATER - It’s shiny and new and is awash with that new building smell - and it is ready to serve you.

The much-anticipated opening of the Clearwater Fire Station No. 45 is right around the corner and the public is invited to attend. A grand opening celebration is planned for Monday, Jan. 26, 2 to 4 p.m., at the new facility’s 1140 Court St. location.

The original facility was built in 1974 at 610 Franklin St. in Clearwater. However, the years were not kind to it, fire Chief Robert Weiss said.

“It aged very poorly over the years,” Weiss said, adding that the complex did not house the city’s administrative or operational departments. “It wasn’t a very cohesive environment.”

According to Weiss, the development plan for a new station has been on the books for more than 10 years. The initial concept was to rebuild at the Franklin address, Weiss said, but Clearwater City Council members wanted to consider other locations within the department’s response zone. The new location at 1140 Court St. was deemed the perfect spot.

DUNEDIN - City officials are paying more than just lip service to the claim they promote and celebrate diversity in the community.

They are partnering with a local company to hold a wedding celebration on Valentine’s Day that will be open LGBT couples who want to get married or exchange vows as well as heterosexual couples.

Dunedin Commissioners agreed unanimously Jan. 22 to waive the $460 rental fee for the use of the park.

TARPON SPRINGS - In 2014, The Shepherd Center distributed 675,000 pounds of food to those in need in north Pinellas County.

Volunteers and employees handed out 30,000 bags of groceries from the food pantry, served 26,000 meals at community kitchens and provided 1,700 Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners through Project T.H.A.N.K.S.

This year, in its new, larger building, the faith-based organization finally has the room to grow, literally and figuratively.

PALM HARBOR - It all started about three years ago during a birthday celebration.

That’s when Jeff Domb, Sean Greelish and Sam Price were sipping on a few ones at the Palm Harbor House of Beer when Price said he had $100,000 he wanted to sink into a brewery operation if Domb and Greelish would be interested in joining.

The three long-time friends, who were also veteran home-brewing hobbyists, agreed it was a great idea. So after jumping through a few hoops, the Stilt House Brewery and craft beer taproom opened Nov. 29 at 625 Alt. U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor.

BELLEAIR - Town commissioners are moving toward approving an agreement that restricts development of the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club course for 20 years from the time it is approved.

Belleair Commissioners raised no objections to a draft agreement Jan. 20 that stems from previous commission discussions on ways to prevent development on the golf course property, which the town owns.

The declaration of land use restrictions, if approved, would be binding upon the golf course property and any person who may from time to time own, lease or otherwise have an interest in the golf course property or any portion thereof.

Have you ever heard about another person’s experience, wondered what it felt like and then went through it yourself? That happened to me today.

Just this morning, I was reading compelling accounts of a life lived among chimpanzees in the African forests. Famed primatologist Jane Goodall has startled the world with her many discoveries - chimps use tools, panic in water, can die of grief. Startling too is her frank admission that, upon hearing of the death of a chimp she knew for years, she grieves.
