This year will be my 20th anniversary selling real estate in the Greater Tampa Bay area, and just when I think I’ve heard it all, along comes Chinese Drywall!

Chinese Drywall is a Chinese product imported by the Lennar Corporation and has been found to contain high levels of sulfur.  In many cases, the drywall emits fumes that destroy appliances, air conditioning systems, duct work, copper pipes, blackens jewelry and can even make people sick.

Ciclovía – it means “bike path” in Spanish – but in Clearwater, it means FUN! On Sunday, April 26th, from 8am to 2pm, two miles of Cleveland Street were closed off and declared a “no car zone.” From Coachman Park all the way up to Highland Avenue, bicyclists could be seen riding in the middle of an empty street.

Following the purchase of the Royalty Theatre by Ruth Eckerd Hall and the City of Clearwater, the venue has had a thorough cleaning and been officially renamed the Capitol Theatre. Its opening performance was on Saturday, April 4th — a performance from a very talented artist, William Joseph.

William is a dynamic and passionate classical pianist whose pop twist gives a fresh and youthful burst of energy to the genre. His music is emotional, dramatic and engaging. Discovered by David Foster in his native Phoenix, Arizona, he has gone on to release two remarkable albums and perform for the likes of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. “I’m very emotion-driven,” he says of his music. “I only write from feelings that I’m having. It’s not a story, it’s raw feeling.”

Clearwater, FL – (February 18, 2009) Construction on the long-awaited Station Square Park in downtown Clearwater is slated for completion soon. The park will officially open to the public with a short ceremony on Feb. 26 at 10am.

Located next to the Station Square Condominium building in the 600 block of Cleveland Street, the park has been undergoing a $1.26-million renovation since last July. It is the final portion of the first phase of the Cleveland Street Streetscape that has transformed the look of Clearwater’s downtown. Work crews are adding final touches including landscaping, decorative pavers, and an attractive fountain at its signature front entrance.

The park will provide a pleasant place for downtown patrons to relax, and city officials expect to use the park’s elevated stage to host small concerts and events.
