PINELLAS PARK - Political trailblazer Patricia Bailey-Snook accomplished a lot of firsts as a Pinellas Park city leader. She was the first woman appointed to the planning and zoning board, the first woman elected to City Council, the first female vice mayor and eventually, the first female mayor.

The city will honor Bailey-Snook, who died Dec. 8, 2014, at 78, at a Saturday, Feb. 7 memorial service at the Performing Arts Center.

She was much more than her list of accomplishments, though, said her son, Michael Bailey. Ultimately, she was all about serving people.

PINELLAS PARK - During the holiday season, the leaders at Park Place Wesleyan Church decided to try something different: leaving the church’s physical building and taking its congregation into the community.

On Dec. 28, rather than holding their regular church services, they instead offered its members a program called The Church Has Left the Building. The congregation gathered at the church - 189 members - and split into teams to head out into the community for “simple acts of service,” said Kristia Wickstrom, the communications pastor.

PINELLAS PARK - Mike Delancey’s four Rottweilers love to run around the backyard of his Pinellas Park home, located just blocks from where he grew up near Skyview Elementary School.

But because of a rotting, wooden fence, in recent months the former marine, who was left paralyzed after being shot by a sniper in Iraq, was wary of letting his dogs outside, even with supervision.

“They’re good dogs, but they just have to see a squirrel and off they go,” he said. “So the fence was a big issue.”

PINELLAS PARK - Pinellas Park teen Caitlin Mitcherson is gearing up for her next major roller skating competition - the Pan American Championships in Kissimmee, Florida, Jan. 16-20.

That’s right: roller skating.

While everyone knows about the sport’s icy counterpart, not many realize that roller skating is just as competitive and requires just as much dedication and hard work.

Mitcherson, now 18, began skating when she was 8 years old, eventually choosing to focus on the sport over baseball and cheerleading. She can be found practicing at Astro Skate in Pinellas Park every day, and puts in just as much time at the gym.
