LARGO - The willingness of American veterans to serve and sacrifice for their country was honored last week in Largo as six men were recognized during an awards ceremony at the Armed Forces History Museum.

The Aug. 19 ceremony was organized to present area veterans with war medals that were either lost over the years, or in many cases, never awarded to begin with.

“Folks this is one of those special moments as a community and a country, particularly at a time we know the politics can be so divisive,” said Republican U.S. Representative David Jolly, who organized the ceremony. “This is something that always brings our communities together, reflects the greatness of America.

The National Hurricane Center has dropped odds of a tropical cyclone forming and threatening Florida within the next five days from 80 percent to 60 percent. Odds are down to 30 percent that a cyclone will form within the next 48 hours.

Meteorologists have been watching a low pressure associated with a tropical wave for several days. The wave is moving westward at 15 to 20 mph through the southeastern Bahamas.

At the 8 p.m. update Thursday, NHC said the system had become less organized and environmental conditions are not expected to be as favorable for development. Conditions could become more favorable over the weekend or early next week when the system is closer to the Florida Keys or over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.

CLEARWATER - More than one was seen wiping tears from their eyes when Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark made her presentation during the Aug. 9 Pinellas County Commission meeting.

Her message was powerful and the graphics even more so. Statistics show the Vote in Honor of a Vet program is making a difference.

During the 2004, 2008 and 2012 General Elections, voter turnout among ages 18-30 was about 10 percentage points higher in Pinellas County than the national average turnout for that age group. Clark attributes those numbers to the success of the Vote in Honor of a Vet program and the thousands of students it has touched since its inception in 2003.

SEMINOLE - More than 200 residents and businesses owners packed the conference center at Seminole Community Library Aug. 18 to learn more about the ongoing Seminole City Center retail project.

“It was impressive that people braved the thunderstorm and filled the conference room to near capacity,” said Roger Edelman, president of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, which sponsored the event.

While construction at the site of the former Seminole Mall got a slow start, it’s currently well underway, and the public has had many questions about the much-talked about project.

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Highway Patrol is concentrating its enforcement efforts on drunk driving through Sept. 5 as part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. FHP is joining law enforcement and highway safety agencies across the nation to remove impaired drivers from roadways in an effort to save lives.

Spaulding. “The choice to drink and drive is a bad decision that could have grave consequences. Be responsible and don’t drink and drive.”
