Call to report nuisance gators

Although alligators are common in local ponds, lakes and parks, some have become a nuisance recently. Alligators can be a threat to people or pets. Problems arise when residents or visitors feed these wild reptiles. That's why Clearwater's Environmental Division is asking that everyone refrain from doing so. Nuisance alligators are typically more than 4 feet long and aren't fearful of humans, as ones in the wild typically are. If you encounter a nuisance alligator, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, or FWC, at toll-free 1-888-404-FWCC (3922) or *FWC or #FWC from a cellphone. A professional trapper will remove the reptile. Florida law prohibits feeding or bothering an alligator. Alligators cannot be tamed, and feeding them can result in serious injuries.

Drivers needed for cancer patients

The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers to drive patients to their cancer treatment appointments throughout the county. The amount of time the volunteer drives as well as the geographic area is based on the volunteer's preference. For more information, call toll-free 1-800-227-2345.
