PALM HARBOR - The Palm Harbor Library took a big step toward becoming a well-rounded community cultural center for the arts May 20 with the unveiling of its new David Meltzer Musical Instrument Collection for kids.

The unveiling of this latest community collection, which is located in the Youth Services Department of the library, 2330 Nebraska Ave., was celebrated with both speeches from library officials, as well as a live performance by musician Bruce Johnson who used an Appalachian Mountain dulcimer, which is string instrument similar in appearance to a guitar, to play several famous folk songs. Following the performance of pieces ranging from “When the Saints Go Marching In” and “Sounds of Tennessee” to “You Are My Sunshine,” attendees were pleasantly surprised with gifts of plastic kazoos, harmonicas and flutes.

Everything took place in a room decorated with hanging musical notes made of cardboard and a variety of freshly polished and shining instruments on display in the center of it all.

PALM HARBOR - A small group of area residents gathered May 18 to hear plans for a pair of proposed assisted living facilities planned on East Lake Road.

The Council of North County Neighborhoods hosted the gathering at the East Lake Library but what those in attendance got was a look at only one. Developers of the other project failed to show up.

The mother and son team of Cheryl and Eric Moore provided information about the proposed 55-room Lake House Assisted Living Facility at 721 East Lake Road.

PALM HARBOR -- At the May 20 Palm Harbor Community Services Agency meeting, East Lake Community Library Administrative Services Coordinator Lisa McCarthy, sitting in for Director Lois Eannel, said that the library is continuing discussions with the Pinellas County Commission, specifically Commissioner Dave Eggers, about expanding parking.

Eannel has been lobbying for the Pinellas County School District’s support in creating a shared parking lot between the library and Cypress Creek Elementary School just to the north along East Lake Road, Tampa Bay Newspapers reported in April; a new parking lot is expected to cost about $300,000.

Eggers contacted the library about possible county grants that could be used to help cover some of the costs, McCarthy said, but the talks are only preliminary.

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.”
