23 New photos of the rolling stones in '65

A new exhibition at Los Angeles' Dilettante gallery will showcase 23 previously unseen photographs capturing candid moments of the Rolling Stones on their 1965 American tour, including several photos taken in Clearwater. Go to tinyurl.com/stonesclearwater to view the photos on the ABC News' website. The Stones have a notable connection to Clearwater: In May 1965, guitarist Keith Richards got the idea for the song (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction while staying in the Jack Tar Harrison Hotel (now the Fort Harrison, home to Scientology) after a gig at Jack Russell Stadium.

Seasonal water rules take effect

Seasonal reclaimed water restrictions for Pinellas County Utilities customers will begin Monday to help avoid shortages during a traditionally dry period. For the months of October and November, irrigation with reclaimed water supplied by Pinellas County is limited to three days per week, based on the resident's home address. Watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and no reclaimed watering is permitted on Mondays. If your house number ends in an even number, water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. If your house number ends in an odd number, water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. If your property contains a mix of addresses or if an address cannot be determined, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision, water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. For information, contact Pinellas County Utilities at (727) 464-4000 or visit pinellascounty.org/utilities.
