INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - The night began with three candidates vying for the two open seats on the Indian Rocks Beach Commission. It ended with no race for those seats because one of the candidates dropped out.

The event was a Meet the Candidates Night. The League of Women Voters of North Pinellas County sponsored the event so local residents would have a chance to hear what the candidates for Mayor and Commissioners had to say about serving the community.

The moderator barely had time to explain the rules when Commission candidate Jeremiah Carmody, who had served on the Commission in 2004 and 2005, announced he was withdrawing.

BELLEAIR BEACH - Details of a plan to underground the utilities of all the city’s residential streets were announced at the Feb. 1 Belleair Beach City Council meeting. A schedule of the first streets to be worked on, along with the estimated cost of each phase, was given.

An earlier intention to fund the undergrounding project out of property tax revenue with no additional cost to the residents was confirmed at the meeting. The original plan was to assess residents a fee to help pay for the job. Now, residents will have to pay only the cost to have the underground service connected to their home.

A common question from visitors is “How did Indian Rocks Beach get its name?”

There has been a lot of confusion, not only about where the name came from, but exactly what the name is, and where it is located.

The historical society recently discovered a letter written in 1950 by an official of the United States Department of the Interior that raises questions about the Indian Rocks Beach name. It asked, “Are there two towns, Indian Rocks on the mainland and Indian Rocks Beach on the island?”

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - Working and living in Dublin, Ireland, can be enticing and exciting. Yet coming home has its own brand of excitement and that is what Tina Stagliano opted for when she applied for and got the job of head librarian in Indian Rocks Beach.

Stagliano was hired in November after an extensive search. The city’s first paid librarian, Jane Mitchell, left to take another position elsewhere in the state.

To illustrate how much home Indian Rocks Beach is for Stagliano one need only to hear the story of her youth.

BELLEAIR BLUFFS - The many pedestrians in this very walkable city now have a safer means to cross busy Indian Rocks Road. The thoroughfare’s new crosswalk, at the Duncan Drive-Sunset Boulevard intersection in Belleair Bluffs, has been upgraded with repainted and enhanced markings, added signage and new Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons, which are strobe-type pedestrian activated lights.

Commissioner Taylour Shimkus said the effort to get the new walkway approved and installed took nearly a year, but the wait was worth it.
