Clearwater man arrested for second time on drug charges


Same man, 56, will again face drug charges

Police arrested a Clearwater man on drug charges for the second time in less than four years. His name? Glenn H. Stoner. Stoner, 56, of 1265 Pierce St., was charged Tuesday with cultivation of marijuana and operating a drug house, both felonies, and a misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia. In 2007, Stoner was ordered into a pretrial intervention program after a December 2006 arrest on charges of possession and manufacture of marijuana. Clearwater police executing a search warrant Tuesday night found 19 marijuana plants and various indoor growing equipment, including irrigation systems and fertilizers, in Stoner's bedroom, according to an arrest report. Stoner said he smokes all of the marijuana himself and said none belongs to his roommate, the arrest report said. On Wednesday, Stoner was being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $10,150 bail.

Tampa builder gets sports complex job

Penny for Pinellas funds will help build a $500,000 multipurpose building at the Joe DiMaggio Sports Complex. Contractors will complete the 4,300-square-foot space for restrooms, storage, concessions and meetings by October, officials said. The City Council voted to award the contract to Certus Builders of Tampa on Monday. The complex of baseball, soccer and football fields at 2450 Drew Street, on the corner of Old Coachman Road, has not had an indoor space since the St. Petersburg College Field House was demolished in 2007. Players and visitors used portable toilets for restrooms and rental containers for storage.

Reclaimed water lines in the works

The city could soon approve orders for new reclaimed water lines below hundreds of homes in Clearwater Harbor. The City Council is expected to award a contract Thursday to Gregory Electric to help plan the reclaimed water system, including laying 20,000 feet of mains. The $2 million project will be funded by city bonds and the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Planners said construction will take 10 months and end in April 2012.

    Local Government

    BROOKSVILLE — Water-based recreation in western Hernando County is a hot topic among county commissioners, but planned discussions about ongoing problems on the Weeki Wachee River and a new proposal for a potential swimming area in the Weekiwachee Preserve slowed to drip Tuesday.
