SEMINOLE - Hard work, focus and commitment. Those things 2012 Seminole Warhawk grad Brett Phillips said would help achieve his ultimate dream: playing major league baseball.

That dream came true on June 5 at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when Phillips started for the Milwaukee Brewers against the San Francisco Giants.

For Phillips, the wait was worth it and looking back at that night, it still seems like a blur.

“It really hasn’t set in yet,” he said. “There’s a bunch of emotions I went through during that first week after being called up. Mostly excited. But also, blessed and thankful.”

SEMINOLE - Following a special June 8 workshop and public meeting, the City Council decided to pursue a land-lease option with Pinellas County for the Seminole Water Tower and surrounding property.

The council unanimously voted to authorize the city attorney and city manager to draft a letter to the Pinellas County Commission regarding negotiation of a lease with the county for the water tower.

The council has been discussing the future of the 110-foot water tower located on county property on the northwest corner of 74th Avenue and 113th Street since the end of last year. The water tower was decommissioned five years ago and the county has plans to demolish it at the end of July if the city decides not to lease the property.

SEMINOLE - At its May 23 meeting, the City Council voted to table a discussion regarding a formal offer from the Pinellas County Commission presenting the city a land-lease option for the Seminole Water Tower and surrounding park.

Initially, the council discussed possibly purchasing the water tower and property from the county. But in a four-to-three vote at its April 11, the council decided not to spend any city funds on the acquisition of the tower.

The council will pick up the lease discussion at a future special workshop and meeting. This will likely take place mid-June, wrote Mayor Leslie Waters in an email. This meeting will be held at a time all seven council members are available. Vice Mayor Chris Burke and Councilor Jim Quinn were absent from the May 23 meeting.

The Blessing Box is a new take on the traditional food pantry and the Little Free Libraries that have popped up around the country. While the box does offer some food, there are also a bevy of other items available to those who need them: cleaning supplies, toilet paper, toiletries, socks.

SEMINOLE - After more than a decade of planning, construction of Fire Station 32 was completed this spring. Seminole Fire Rescue celebrated the new building, located at 10870 110th Ave. N., with a ribbon cutting April 21.

The 7,200 square-foot, state-of-the-art building is an improvement over the original fire station, which was built by volunteers in 1969 and stood at the same location, said Chief Heather Burford.

“The previous building was older and no longer really met our needs,” she said. “So that building was completely torn down.”
