Special needs affordable housing development opens

People with disabilities, and those who have experienced homelessness and domestic violence, have a new local housing resource.

Pinellas County officials joined leadership from Boley Centers Friday to celebrate the opening of Evergreen Village in Pinellas Park. The development not only provides 21 income-restricted one, two and three-bedroom apartments for people with specific needs, but it also offers its residents wraparound services through partnerships with local organizations such as CASA (Community Action Stops Abuse).

The road to Ruth: Talking with playwright Rupert Holmes

It’s pretty much common knowledge that Rupert Holmes, the Tony-winning playwright whose All Things Equal: The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is onstage this month at freeFall Theatre, began his career as a singer/songwriter. He is the very same Rupert Holmes whose catchy “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)” topped the pop charts in 1979.

What’s less known is that Holmes first hit the “big time” years earlier. At 21, his song “Timothy” made the Top 20, recorded by an obscure Pennsylvania group called the Buoys. In the narrative, sung over a swinging country/rock beat, the narrator describes a mine collapse in which he and two other workers – Joe and Tim - were trapped underground, slowly starving to death.
