Let us know why you love this beach

The beach at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs will close the day after Labor Day for bridge reconstruction, which is estimated to take about 15 months. You're hating it. We know. So send us your favorite memories from Pinellas' northernmost beach. We'll publish some of them in the coming weeks. Send submissions to Rita Farlow at 710 Court St., Clearwater, FL 33756, or fax: (727) 445-4119.


Meeting to detail future roadwork

Curious about the county's future road projects? Assistant County Administrator Peter Yauch will talk about those plans at a 7 p.m. public meeting Monday at Crescent Oaks Country Club, 3300 Crescent Oaks Blvd., East Lake. The meeting, presented by the Council of North County Neighborhoods, will address issues relevant to East Lake, Palm Harbor, Oldsmar, Crystal Beach and Ozona. For information, visit


Roads closed for construction crews

Depending on where you're headed, Monday might not be the best day for driving around the beaches. First off, several roads on south Clearwater Beach will be closed from 6 a.m.-9 p.m. while construction crews on the Aqualea Resort project adjust their cranes. Closed will be S Gulfview Boulevard from just south of the Pier 60 lot entrance to Fifth Street and Coronado Drive from Devon Drive to Brightwater Drive. If you simply must be in that neighborhood, try Hamden Drive. Farther south, the Belleair Causeway Bridge will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. both Monday and Tuesday.
