Three School Board seats up for grabs

Pinellas School Board member Carol J. Cook was elected to her third term Friday after no one filed to run against her in the Aug. 26 primary.

Cook, a 57-year-old Clearwater resident, represents District 5.

Her election leaves 13 candidates who will compete for three seats on the seven-member board.

For the District 1 at-large seat, incumbent Janet Clark faces Jennifer S. Crockett, Max Loden and Grant Smith.

In the District 2 at-large race, five candidates are running to replace Nancy Bostock, who is running for County Commission. They are David O. Archie, Nina Hayden, Minetha Morris, Sean O'Flannery and Ron Walker.

Four candidates are competing for District 4 — Chris Hardman, Steven D. Isbitts, Ken Peluso, and Robin L. Wikle.

If no candidate receives a majority vote in the primary, the two with the most votes will compete in the Nov. 4 general election.

  4. Bar review: Les Partners Lounge goes old-school in Clearwater

    Bars & Spirits

    There are some local places that I'm shocked aren't more well known, and I think that's the result of a general aversion to stepping out of one's comfort zone. I make regular concerted efforts to step outside of mine, which often leads me to strange and rewarding drinking establishments.

    Les Partners Lounge is an old-school, smoker-friendly cocktail lounge and live music venue tucked away in a nondescript shopping plaza in Island Estates.
