In a Philly.com article today, Jonathan Tannewald recounts how the Howards are in trouble with the Belleair Shores mayor for an illegal construction fence. (You can read the article HERE.) In fact, in my video, I remarked on how the construction fence remained in place even after the construction has been completed. You can see the chainlink fence that is in disrepair with green canvas that is falling off and unsightly in the pictures below:
Baseball Ross and I traveled to Howard’s home, just a few miles from Clearwater to take pictures, but unlike the fans recounted in the article, we stayed at a respectful distance on the beach and on the public sidewalk on the street side.
As I mentioned in the in my blog, there is NO on-street parking in Belleaire Shores, yet the day we were there (after parking half a mile away in the ONLY PUBLIC parking lot in Belleaire Shores) we saw two cars parked on a side street across from the manse and one brazen jerk who parked IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD to take pictures. So when the article recounts large numbers of trespassers, I wouldn’t doubt it.
I understand their need for privacy, so let’s just hope that the Howards and the mayor can come to some sort of understanding.
