SEMINOLE - Demolition of the former Seminole 8 Touchstar Cinema located next to the Seminole Mall is slated to begin Monday, April 6, said Jim Ford, a city building official.

Because of the demolition, 80th Avenue east of 113th Street and Liberty Lane north of Temple Terrace will close for approximately 45 days starting Thursday, March 26. Traffic will be routed through the mall parking lot.

Prior to the April 6 demolition, which will be conducted by the Clearwater-based Sonny Glasbrenner Inc., prep work will be done at the theater site. This includes erecting a fence around the perimeter of the theater, setting up barricades for road closures, and safely draining the building’s air conditioning system.

SEMINOLE - After serving the city for 34 years, City Attorney John Elias announced his retirement at the March 10 Seminole City Council meeting.

His last day will be Aug. 3 of this year. He said he is retiring due to several ongoing health issues, and had been mulling over the decision.

“This has been a difficult question, an issue, for me,” Elias said. “But after 47 years of practicing law and 34 of those years being the city attorney I think, and you probably would agree, that it is time we have a new city attorney.

PLANT CITY - As young boys growing up in Gulfport, Rod Keiser and his brother would beg their father to share his stories about fighting in World War II.

Ted Keiser, who served in the Army Air Corps, was a B-17 Bomber pilot who flew multiple bombing missions over Austria and Germany.

During his final mission, on Dec. 18, 1944, en route to a target over Poland, flak struck the plane he was flying. Two engines were damaged immediately and a third quickly caught fire. He fought to maintain altitude so his seven-man crew could parachute to safety before bailing out himself. He was awarded a Purple Heart and the Distinguished Flying Cross for his service.

Benjamin and Margaret Campbell settled in Seminole in 1873 and many of their descendants still live in the area. Their 78th annual family reunion will be held March 21 with more than 100 cousins in attendance. Last year, the family voted to donate $2,500 from its treasury to the Seminole Historical Society for its new museum. A check was presented at the Historical Society’s January meeting. Pictured are the group’s president Sandra Holloway, right, and several Campbell cousins, from left, Clara Sue Scott Blaser, Sherry Nichols Rasmussen, Nancy Brown Barlow and Marilyn Johnson Mohney.
