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 June 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.’“
