Job fair at HCC Plant City on Aug. 4

Job hunters: If you need a job, head over to Hillsborough Community College in Plant City on Tuesday. Sponsored by U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez and U. S. Rep. Adam H. Putnam, a free job fair will feature federal agencies and local employers. There will be workshops too. The fair is from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the HCC John R. Trinkle Center, 1206 N Park Road in Plant City. Workshops start at 3:15 p.m. and continue a quarter past the hour until 6 p.m. Topics cover how to apply for a federal job, how to look for a job, and how to do resumes and interviews. Call (813) 977-6450 or (813) 534-3530 for more information.

calling on voters: A reminder to Pinellas County voters: Today is the final day to register if you want to vote in the Sept. 1 elections in St. Petersburg and Belleair Bluffs. St. Petersburg has the big slate; voters in this primary will winnow the field of 10 candidates for mayor to two, as well as make choices in City Council races. Belleair Bluffs residents are voting by mail on a referendum. To register, go to any Supervisor of Elections office, public library, driver's license office or government office handling social services.

From punk to country: The week begins and ends with a couple of music standouts.

Then on Saturday, it's country superstar Kenny Chesney, maybe the most reliable concert draw in the land.
