Editor: Dear Santa: We are older and don’t exchange gifts anymore, but Santa this year there is one gift I would ask you for. The gift is not just for me but also for the special town of Belleair and for the whole world to share.
Oh Santa, please save our beautiful, historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel. The hotel, you see, is the very heart and soul of Belleair and its restoration would bring back the grace and dignity to not just our area but to the state of Florida and beyond. I know there have been many distortions and negative falsehoods put out in print to discourage folks but our mayor believes in miracles and so do I. So Please, Santa, gift us our miracle.
