BELLEAIR - The term “home rule” is more likely suited to bygone days such as when the British- ruled colonies all over the world with laws passed in London with little or no regard for the local needs.

History shows the colonies wanted to rule themselves, thus the term.

While all that might be history the term Home Rule has taken on a more modern and relevant meaning right here in Florida.

BELLEAIR BLUFFS - The municipal park and playground next to Belleair Bluffs City Hall will be the site of the city’s first public art display. A mural depicting endangered animals will be painted on a wall next to the restrooms facing the children’s playground.

The City Commission approved the art’s creation at its June 20 meeting. The cost will be around $3,000. The painting will be large, about 14 feet wide and 7 feet tall, and should last 10 to 15 years or more, said its designer.

“There’s a lot of public art going on in Pinellas County, and I wanted to be a part of that, to bring some of that to Belleair Bluffs,” said City Clerk Debra Sullivan.

BELLEAIR BLUFFS - Belleair Bluffs resident Jason Charos, 16, has been playing the trumpet since he was 5 years old. Ever since then music has been his life and as he looks to the future music will continue to be his life. He has been immersed in it all that time and now it is beginning to pay off.

Charos is going into his senior year at Gibbs High School. He attends the County Center for the Arts there and of course studies music. All along he has hoped to be able to go to music school after high school. That is now more reality than hope because he has just been awarded a $2,500 scholarship from the Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts.

BELLEAIR BEACH - Years of frustration with a perceived lack of action to underground utilities in the city’s neighborhoods spilled out at the June 9 Belleair Beach City Council meeting.

Residents, mostly from the “waterfront fingers” neighborhood around Donato Drive and 22nd Street, packed city hall as council prepared to approve a $14,000 “survey of property owners regarding undergrounding utilities of citywide streets.”

Their message was clear. Surveys are not necessary. What’s needed is to get the undergrounding done.

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - For more than two hours Indian Rocks Beach commissioners and residents argued over an application to establish a pub at 2701 Gulf Blvd. Although the application appeared to fit the zoning plans of the city, commissioners denied a variance.

There is a requirement that new alcohol selling establishments have to be 500 feet from other such establishments. In this case two other restaurant/bars are within the 500 feet so a variance would be required.

Aiden Bowles told the commission at its meeting June 14 that he wanted to purchase the property, last used as a real estate office, and turn it into a gastro pub, one that serves small meals along with liquor, beer and wine.

BELLEAIR - Entering the world of Daryl May is entering a world of extremes. His life’s experiences have ranged from the extremely funny and humorous to the extremely sad and tragic.

He is a man who has been a Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy, an entertainer and now an author. His personality is just as eclectic as his life.

May has just published a book, “Chasing Shadows,” and while it is mostly stories of his days in law enforcement, it includes many chapters of his own life, which began 80 years ago.
