Underwater Rescue

EAST LAKE - East Lake Fire Rescue is taking strides to improve rescue efforts in underwater accidents in Pinellas County.

Currently, Pinellas County 600 Series requires fire departments to request a dive team for any underwater emergency situations, such as a submerged vehicle. In north Pinellas, the closest dive team is in Clearwater.

“It doesn’t do much good if you’re sitting around waiting for them to get here from Clearwater,” said East Lake Fire Chief Tom Jamison. “And it’s not like they’re sitting and waiting to leave. They’re all usually assigned to other rescue apparatuses, so they have to move personnel around, get their equipment and get to the scene. That takes 30 minutes minimum.”

CLEARWATER - The citizens of Palm Harbor want to build a brick walkway around their Veterans Memorial, but they need permission from Pinellas County.

Palm Harbor resident Tony Caso showed photos of work done on the citizen’s Veterans Memorial project to County Commissioners at their April 21 meeting and explained why they wanted to add the walkway.

He said the county designated an area for a memorial in 2000 on county-owned property where the Palm Harbor Historic Museum is located at 2043 Curlew Road.

PALM HARBOR - Mastering the art of motherhood, work and community is no small feat but that’s exactly what one Palm Harbor woman has successfully tackled.

As an active and integral member on the board of directors for several major environmental groups in Pinellas County, Barbara Walker completely combines her three passions - environmentalism, social leadership and the simple joy of bird watching.

It has been said that every woman’s journey is her own and Walker’s first steps to this point began on a very solemn and special day, over a decade ago.

PALM HARBOR - Funding for the East Lake Community Library expansion project is being considered in the Florida Senate.

The current draft of the Senate appropriation bill includes $1 million set aside specifically for East Lake, beyond the $2 million in capital funds requested by the Department of State for the library construction grants. The library’s director, Lois Eannel, said she continues to be cautiously optimistic that East Lake would receive that funding by the end of the legislative session on May 1.

“I’m so hoping,” Eannel said April 15. “It’s so exciting. I think it would be such a terrible letdown if we didn’t get it now.”

PALM HARBOR - Within the next few weeks, the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency is set to hire a new accountant, with hopes of concluding a long chapter of financial confusion and accounting problems.

The agency’s board, which oversees the finances for the libraries and recreation services in Palm Harbor and East Lake, has expressed dissatisfaction with its current accountant, who members believe is responsible for inaccuracies and inconsistencies in the monthly financial reports.

Already, two accounting firms have submitted proposals to PHCSA’s request for a new accountant. The agency’s audit committee has already interviewed one of the firms and is scheduled to interview the other Tuesday, April 21.
