New downtown Clearwater restaurant honored for its dramatic look


New restaurant Honored for its dramatic look

The Greektown Grill, a recent addition to Clearwater's downtown dining options, has won the Business Beautification Recognition Award for Fall 2008 from the city and the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce. The building at 1230 Cleveland St. has been renovated with a new facade, banquet area, covered outdoor eating area and a large dining room. Outdoor lighting illuminates the restaurant's signs and provides a dramatic look for the building at night, city officials noted.


Another raccoon has rabies; be safe

A test on a raccoon captured in October has come back positive for rabies. The animal, trapped near Beltrees Street and Patricia Avenue, is the fourth to test positive in North Pinellas since the Department of Agriculture started a random trapping and testing program. County spokeswoman Mary Burrell said the findings aren't surprising to Animal Services, which operates under the assumption that rabies is never eradicated. The agency doesn't ordinarily test raccoons unless they scratch or bite a person or pet. The county recommends these guidelines to protect against rabies:

1. Keep your pets' rabies vaccinations current.

2. Do not leave food outdoors for pets or wildlife.

3. Do not feed or interact with wildlife.

4. Do not trap a raccoon without help from Animal Services (which will remove a nuisance raccoon) and don't relocate a raccoon, which is illegal and can cause the spread of disease.

For information on rabies call Animal Services at (727) 582-2608.
