Clinic to host Nurses Gala

The Good Samaritan Health Clinic is hosting the 4th annual Nurses Gala on May 7 in conjunction with National Nurses Week, at the Spartan Manor in New Port Richey. Funds will be used to support the daily operation of the free clinic helping the indigent. Rao Musunuru, M.D., a staunch supporter of the clinic and the nursing profession, will be the master of ceremonies. For more information, call Melissa Fahy at (727) 848-7789.

Corrections

• As part of the break granted by Dade City commissioners, David Hernandez will do the renovations to his Seventh Street building in four phases, and receive a portion of the $42,820 city grant after completing each phase. This represents a departure from the rules of the grant program, in which businesses must pay upfront for the costs of repainting and improving their facades, then receive reimbursement at the end when the project is complete. An article Wednesday was incorrect on this point.

• Due to a mistake in the award ceremony program, the name of Anelyse Montilla, 2010 Turnaround Achievement Award recipient for Marchman Technical Education Center, was misspelled in an article Wednesday.
