CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners voted unanimously April 15 to terminate the services of Administrator Bob LaSala.

The administrator’s annual review was the first action taken at the afternoon meeting.

Commissioner Norm Roche was absent.

Commission Chair Karen Seel asked a commissioner to make a motion to terminate LaSala’s contract without cause. She said the contract called for a 90-day notice provision. She said during those 90 days, LaSala would be reporting to her or her designee for assigned duties.

Commissioner Ken Welch made the motion, which was seconded by Commissioner Janet Long.

Welch thanked LaSala for his service.

“But I think this is an appropriate step forward,” he said.

LaSala thanked the commission for the opportunity to serve Pinellas County.

“It is with mixed emotions I leave my position,” he said. “It was an honor to serve the community.”

He said a number of the county’s goals had been accomplished during his tenure. He also pointed out that controversy resulted in some areas, specifically emergency medical services and health and community services.

He thanked his executive staff, some have been reassigned, he said.

PALM HARBOR - Palm Harbor Community Services Agency board members were unhappy with the results - or rather the lack of feedback - from an annual audit reported to the board March 19.

The agency, commonly referred to as PHCSA, switched to a new auditing company this year, after its longtime auditor retired. In the report delivered to the board members Jan. 14, representatives from DKM certified public accountants stated that financial statements of the agency “present fairly” the financial position of the agency.

DUNEDIN - Attendance was up about 30 percent at the 2014 Dunedin Highland Games and Festival April 5, with just under 5,000 people coming through gates.

“The games, by all accounts, were our biggest and best ever,” Alan McHale, president of the Dunedin Highland Games, said in an email. “In athletics two world records were broken. In piping and drumming, solo performance, with 110 contestants - this was the highest in the state of Florida. The weather, of course, was perfect, and the entertainment went on well into the night.”

LARGO - G. David Howard is not your typical comedian. The author of a recently published political memoir has been telling jokes for a living for more than four decades.

He was recognized in the Guinness World Book of Records for 16 hours of stand-up without so much as a bathroom break.

He started his career in Ohio, of all places, before comedy clubs were even popular and later was a staple performer in Las Vegas for five years.

Like many invasive species, the red lionfish is nice to look at, reproduces prolifically, has few natural predators and preys on native species.

A few examples of similar invasive marine activity are witnessed in the Cuban tree frog, Asian swamp eel, and suckermouth catfish. These aquatic animals were introduced to Florida either intentionally or by accident, and have since established themselves by displacing native species.
