Police station renovations on Kenneth City agenda

KENNETH CITY — Council members here have scheduled a special workshop at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday to discuss plans to renovate the Police Department headquarters.

Council members tabled the issue late last year after Mayor Teresa Zemaitis pointed out the high cost of some of the fixtures, such as faucets, televisions and refrigerators, included in the renovation. Zemaitis, and some residents, asked that the proposed renovations, expected to cost between $150,000 and $200,000, be delayed until after Kenneth City's first town manager comes on board. But a majority of the council agreed to discuss the renovations Wednesday and have included them as an agenda item on the regularly scheduled council meeting that will follow the workshop. Both the workshop and the council meeting are open to the public. They will be held in the Community Hall, 4600 58th St. N.

The town has received 37 applications from across the United States for the town manager's position. A teleconference will be held at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Town Hall, 600 54th Ave. N, for members of the selection committee to whittle the list down to 10 or 12. Those names will be submitted to the council, which will select the finalists who will be interviewed for the job. The teleconference will be open to the public, but public participation will not be allowed.

The council is expected to select the finalists this month. Interviews have been tentatively scheduled for Feb. 8 at the Train Station, 5851 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park. That location was chosen because Community Hall is not available that day.

For information, call Kenneth City Town Hall at (727) 498-8948. The interviews will be open to the public.

    Buoyed by a signal from House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced a pared-down health care bill late Thursday that he hoped would keep alive Republican ambitions to repeal Obamacare.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., left, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., expressed concerns about passing the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare without assurances of further negotiations.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  5. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
