PALM HARBOR - Palm Harbor Library hosted a candidate forum July 18, for surrounding residents to learn more about whom they will be voting for in the Aug. 30 election.

Property Appraiser

Candidates for Pinellas County Property Appraiser were James “Jim” C. Frishe and Mike Twitty, both Republican candidates.

“I don’t think there is a Democrat that wanted to face us,” Frishe said.

Frishe, a 30 year real estate veteran, served as a State Representative in the legislature twice, from 1984 to 1990 and 2006 to 2012. He was majority whip of the Florida House from 2010 to 2012 and was appointed by President Ronald Reagan as White House Delegate to the 1988 NATO Conference.

PALM HARBOR - La Mirage Salon and Spa, 3730 Tampa Road in Palm Harbor, is hosting a fundraiser for their stylist, 25-year-old Rebecca Seiler, Aug. 21, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Becca Seiler has been a stylist for many years,” said Kellie Robertson. “Becca didn’t want anyone to know about this, but she’s dying.”

Robertson describes what happening to Seiler as similar to what happens to a football player after being hit many times.

Seiler was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, a condition in which brain matter extends into the spinal canal, according to Seiler’s Gofundme page, written by her mother Amy Seiler. It is suspected that this was caused by an injury she suffered in her adolescence.

“She thought it was fog,” Koulianos said. It wasn’t before long she realized it was smoke.
