EAST LAKE - The Council of North County Neighborhoods invited members of the local community, most from East Lake and Palm Harbor, to East Lake Library for a forum on Penny for Pinellas, Monday, June 20.

The north county area is the first stop for Pinellas County representatives Bill Berger, director of the Office of Management and Budget, and intergovernmental liaison Mary Scott, who will be making their rounds throughout Pinellas to get citizen input on how the fourth iteration of Penny money should be used.

“We’re just at the very beginning of planning for Penny four,” Scott said. “Our biggest goal tonight is to hear from all of you.”

OLDSMAR- A total of 342 residents of Oldsmar, as well as 45 businesses, have signed a petition to allow horse trails in the Mobley Bayou Preserve.

Oldsmar resident Scott Gengler presented the petition to the City Council during the citizen’s open forum portion of the July 21 meeting.

Gengler and supporters feel that taking away these horse trails would be a great disservice to the youth in the area.

“Our goal is to not only encourage the Council to allow horse trails to open in Mobley Park Reserve, but to also encourage the city of Oldsmar to be more horse-friendly and help preserve the hoofprint in our community for future generations,” Gengler said.

PALM HARBOR - Jo-An Totty’s crusade to erect the Veterans Memorial at the Palm Harbor Museum began when the old sanctuary of the Palm Harbor United Methodist Church came down.

Totty cried that day back in October 2000. Issues she’s passionate about - usually involving her beloved Palm Harbor - often bring her to tears. But something good came out of the rubble at 12th Street and Georgia Avenue.

“When they tore down the sanctuary, they had all that beautiful stone,” Totty explained recently. “I told the county, ‘Don’t take the stone. We want it We need to make a war memorial.’“
