Seminole Community Library to Turn 50

July 1, 2010

Congressman Young's remarks as they appeared in the Congressional Record:

Mr. YOUNG of Florida. Madam Speaker, the Seminole Community Library is one of the greatest educational resources of the City of Seminole, Florida I have the privilege to represent. Later this month, the library, its staff and its thousands of patrons will celebrate its golden 50th anniversary. Founded by a dedicated group of volunteers in 1960, the library has outgrown its facilities on a number of occasions before locating at its present site on the campus of The St. Petersburg College. Now named the Dennis L. Jones Seminole Community Library at St. Petersburg College, after my good friend and Florida State Senator, the partnership between the library, the city and the college makes this one of the most unique facilities of its kind in our entire area.

Madam Speaker, one thing has transcended the history of this great library, from its early days in the "cottage" to its present operations in a state-of-the-art educational facility, and that is service to people of all ages. It is a real honor for me to have the library as a valuable neighbor to my Seminole Congressional District Office and to visit with folks there as they come and go. Please join me in congratulating those early leaders who had a vision that has grown into this great library and to thank all those who provide support to the current facility. This includes the City of Seminole, The St. Petersburg College, the library's professional staff and dedicated volunteers, the Friends of the Library organization, the Library Advisory Board and the Library Youth Advisory Board. As the library embarks upon its next 50 years of service to our community, it remains focused on its goal to remember the past, serve the present and plan for the future.

Lessons from an oily Gulf

President Barack Obama is correct to delay his proposal to expand offshore drilling, allowing rigs as close as 50 miles to the Atlantic Coast and as close as 125 miles to Florida's Gulf Coast.

U.S. Reps. Bill Young and Kathy Castor, both vigorous defenders of Florida's environment, want Obama to maintain the current 235-mile Gulf buffer, and they may be right. But the president should await more evidence before abandoning what seemed to us - before the blowout - a judicious approach to drilling.
