    Library to celebrate its first birthday

    EAST LAKE -- Friends of the East Lake Library plan to mark the library's first birthday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday with a celebration that will include free refreshments, storytelling, music, magic and arts and crafts for kids. The Clam Bayou Jazz Band is scheduled to play at noon and after a 1 p.m. presentation and cake-cutting. The library, built after an 11-year effort, is at 4125 East Lake Road.

    Belleair won't drop suit against Florida Power

    BELLEAIR -- One commissioner's effort to get the town to withdraw its lawsuit against Florida Power failed Wednesday night. During a special town meeting, Commissioner Tom Murrin tried to convince three other commissioners that the town ought to be negotiating a new contract with the utility giant rather than racking up legal fees in a lawsuit. After a unanimous vote in September, the commission sued Florida Power to get the court's interpretation of whether Belleair has the right to purchase the company's poles and wires and start a municipal electric utility. When it was clear Murrin would find no support with the other commissioners, he suggested the town suspend the lawsuit. That idea, too, failed. About 50 people attended the meeting and some expressed frustration when the commissioners would not allow them to speak. The town has scheduled a meeting Nov. 8 at Town Hall in which residents can voice their opinions.
