SEMINOLE - Phase I construction at Waterfront Park, which will be built on city-owned property adjacent to Home Depot on Park Boulevard, could begin as soon as April, Jeremy Hockenbury, director of Public Works, told the Seminole City Council at its March 14 meeting.

At the meeting, the council approved a declaration of a restrictive covenant with the state Department of Environmental Protection for the park.

The parcel previously had been used as a non-permitted landfill and required the DEP determination that no further assessments were necessary on the property before the park could be built.

SEMINOLE - Friends and family say there was nothing Eugene Mohney wouldn’t do for the Seminole community.

Every part of the city has been touched by his kindness and generosity in his lifetime, said longtime friend, Eva Jones.

“If there was anything going on in the community that was good for the community, he was there,” Jones said.

Ken Burke, clerk of the circuit court, said, “There was no job beneath Gene to do for community service,” from cleaning fish for a cookout to moving a piano for an Easter Sunday service.

SEMINOLE - In recent weeks, there’s been a flurry of activity at Seminole City Center, the new retail development under construction at the intersection of 113th Street and Park Boulevard, the site of the former Seminole Mall.

New structures are going up quickly, said Roger Edelman, Seminole City Councilor and chair of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce. Many tenants were waiting for Studio Movie Grill, an upscale theater, to confirm its spot as the anchor tenant before fully committing to the project over the past six months, he added.

SEMINOLE - Seminole has been the home to the Rev. Dr. David A. Miller and his wife, Leslie, for the past 25 years. This March 26, Miller will give his last sermon at Faith Community Church in Seminole.

“I will miss all of the amazing people at Faith Church. I loved working with our terrific staff and leadership. I will also miss the weekly process of teaching and preaching,” said Miller.

SEMINOLE - More than two decades ago, when the city and St. Petersburg College’s Seminole campus began exploring the possibility of building a joint-use library, a group of volunteers also got to work.

As plans for the new library moved forward, with the help of a $400,000 grant under the Florida Library Construction Act, those volunteers formed the Friends of the Seminole Community Library.

SEMINOLE - Since 1958, the Seminole Water Tower has stood on the northwest corner of 74th Avenue and 113th Street, not far from where the new Seminole City Center is being built.

Towering over nearby homes and buildings, it’s visible from miles away.

For many - residents, snowbirds and tourists - the tower serves as an icon. Not only does it stand at 110-feet-tall, but it also boasts a mural featuring colorful Florida birds in flight against a sky blue backdrop with white, fluffy clouds.

SEMINOLE - For years, Largo’s Anona United Methodist Church has striven to reach members of the Seminole community.

It made sense, said the Rev. Richard Landon. The church draws from residents of unincorporated areas bordering both Largo and Seminole, and works with schools that served students from both areas.

But three years ago, Landon attended a meeting for fifth-grade graduates of Bauder Elementary School. Scanning the room, he quickly realized that only a couple of families there were members of Anona.

SEMINOLE - Just earlier this year, Bill Miller thought he might not have much longer to live. For two months, he was in and out of the hospital. First, his kidneys failed. Then he had to have his gallbladder removed.

“I almost didn’t make it,” he said. “I get very emotional. I almost passed away in the hospital and the Lord saved me for something. He took care of me.”

Miller, who bought the Lewis W. Mohn Funeral Home last year, rallied, though, and he was able to attend the Seminole Chamber of Commerce’s 52nd annual Mr. Seminole awards banquet at Holiday Inn Harbourside Feb. 18.
