CLEARWATER - Last year when Pinellas County implemented its surface water assessment fee for unincorporated residents, some complained.

But this year, an overflow crowd showed up to protest after some received bills as much as 340 percent higher. Nearly all were residents of mobile home parks.

Kelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager, explained that last year’s bills were incorrect - incomplete. This year’s assessments are more accurate. They were calculated using data from digitized images, showing all the impervious surfaces inside the different parks, including roads, swimming pools, patios, shuffleboard courts and other structures besides the mobile homes.

Assessments that are more accurate allow the county to capture the best revenue stream based on the amount of runoff from each property. Rainwater and water from sprinklers flow out onto the ground, which becomes saturated. The excess water, or runoff, continues onto sidewalks and streets, picking up pollutants as it then flows into storm drains, ponds, ditches and on into the county’s waterways and Gulf of Mexico.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission’s Sept. 19 red tide report shows background concentrations of Karenia brevis, the red tide organism, in only one of eight samples taken alongshore Pinellas County this week.

The other seven samples found no sign of Florida red tide.

Bloom concentrations were not found in, along or offshore Pinellas County, FWC says.

However, the patchy bloom of red tide continues to persist in the northeast Gulf of Mexico, but it seems to have moved north of Pinellas for now.

DUNEDIN - Months from now the owners of House of Beer plan to be serving craft beer to patrons sitting within footsteps of the Pinellas Trail.

They are leasing a warehouse off Huntley Avenue just east of their existing location at 927 Broadway. House of Beer plans to brew beer in the 3,700-square-foot building and open a restaurant and bar, with outdoor seating facing the Pinellas Trail.

House of Beer co-owner Andy Polce said it would be about nine months before the business will open because of renovations to the building, which now is just a shell.

LARGO - Largo commissioners called for the resignation of Commissioner Curtis Holmes Sept. 16, following the discovery of inappropriate material on his city-issued iPad.

The links to images and YouTube videos were downloaded from Facebook and sent to Holmes’ personal email account. They included a cartoon depiction of Muhammad “makin’ bacon” with a pig and a video of a woman in her underwear shaking her butt in front of a webcam.

BELLEAIR - After weeks of dealing with accusations of micromanaging and interference in day-to-day operations, Police Chief Tom Edwards has resigned. His resignation came in a brief letter to Town Manager Micah Maxwell on Sept. 15.

“I would like to provide you two weeks’ notice and tender my resignation with the town of Belleair effective on Friday, September 26, 2014 at the close of business,” wrote Edwards. “If I can assist you in any way in the future please do not hesitate to contact me.”

LARGO - Oscar created quite the stir when he arrived at Palm Garden of Pinellas in Largo to be screened as a therapy pet Sept. 13.

The black and white miniature pig on a leash remained calm as his adoring fans crowded to take his picture and snap selfies. His demeanor earned him a checkmark on his evaluation as a pet who would be well suited to visit the elderly and, in his case, autistic children.

TARPON SPRINGS - If it feels like the students at East Lake High School are younger this year, it’s because they are. This year, some of them are middle school students.

The students, dressed in polo shirts and khaki shorts, shuffle from class to class on a bell schedule separate from the high school. They don’t eat lunch with the high school students or take gym with them. They rarely even share a hallway. Instead, in a cluster of portables by the baseball field, the East Lake Middle School Academy of Engineering is finding its own identity.
