Honor firefighters, fight breast cancer

Tickets to the "Italian bistro" dinner are $12 and are available at Palm Harbor Fire Rescue Station 65 at 250 West Lake Road. The dinner is open to the public. Proceeds from ticket sales, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle will provide pink T-shirts for firefighters to sell to the public in honor of the Susan G.

Residents may get rid of old medicine

To help residents safely dispose of unused or expired medications, several law enforcement agencies have pooled efforts to provide dropoff locations. Residents may stop by the following locations between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 15 and drop off their medications — no questions asked. No biohazards or needles will be accepted; the program is not intended for commercial use. The program, "Operation Medicine Cabinet," provides a safe way of destroying the pharmaceuticals through incineration, as opposed to flushing or sending the medication to the landfill. Dropoff locations will be at:

• Largo: Sweetbay Supermarket, 2460 East Bay Drive.

• Dunedin: Sweetbay Supermarket, 1681 Main St.

• Seminole: Kmart (west parking lot), 7949 113th St. N.

• Palm Harbor: Sweetbay Supermarket, 1360 Tampa Road.

• Clearwater: Albertsons, 2170 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd.; Westfield Countryside Mall, 27001 US 19 N, Clearwater (near JC Penny's).

  2. Unlicensed contractor accused of faking death triggers policy change at Pinellas construction licensing board

    Local Government

    The unlicensed contractor accused of faking his death to avoid angry homeowners has triggered an immediate change in policy at the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board.

    Last year Glenn and Judith Holland said they paid a contractor thousands of dollars to renovate their future retirement home in Seminole. But when they tried to move in on Dec. 14, they said the home was in shambles and uninhabitable. They sent a text message to contractor Marc Anthony Perez at 12:36 p.m. looking for answers. Fourteen minutes later, they got back this text: "This is Marc's daughter, dad passed away on the 7th of December in a car accident. Sorry." Turns out Perez was still alive. Now the Hollands are suing him in Pinellas-Pasco circuit court. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
