Pinellas County schools holding discovery nights Dec. 16-18

Little time left to shop for schools

Eight special programs will hold discovery nights in the next few days as the Pinellas school system winds toward the close of its tour season and looks ahead to the application process in January.

Discovery nights give families a chance to tour magnet, fundamental and career programs and hear what they offer. Many programs offer other ways to explore their programs; families should contact individual programs for information.

Discovery nights begin at 6 p.m. and usually last 60 to 90 minutes. Here are those scheduled for the coming week:


• Leadership Conservatory for the Arts, Tarpon Springs Middle

• Osceola Fundamental High


• Clearwater Fundamental Middle

• Academy for Aquatic Management Systems & Environmental Technology, Lakewood High

• Center for Journalism and Multimedia (CJAM), Lakewood High


• Pasadena Fundamental Elementary

• Center for Advanced Technologies (CAT) at Lakewood High

• Center for Construction Technologies at St. Petersburg High

This week in tb-two*

In the last edition until Jan. 16, we offer tips on how to make a snowman out of sand, a guide to classic holiday movies, more homemade gifts and gluten-free eating. If you're not in high school, go to for a list of places to find a free copy of this Times weekly produced by high school journalists when school is in session.

One more week!

Schools will close for winter holidays Dec. 23 and will reopen Jan. 7.

  1. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.
  2. Local craft beer of the week: Two Henrys Belleview-Biltmore Blueberry Vanilla Wheat

    Bars & Spirits

    Two Henrys Brewing Company is a unique entity in the Tampa Bay brewing scene, due to both its status as the only brewery in Plant City, as well as its location on a 27-acre working farm, which also includes a winery.

  5. Bob Buckhorn: Expanding homestead exemption will endanger Tampa's progress


    In the years leading up to my taking office, Tampa families experienced some of the hardest times in recent history. Homes were lost, jobs were cut, and optimism for the future waned.

    Critics say expanding the homestead exemption for Florida property owners will strain the resources of local governments as they recover from the Great Recession.[SKIP O'ROURKE   |   Times, 2005]
