Honor firefighters, fight breast cancer

A fundraiser to honor Palm Harbor firefighters will be at Stratford Court Assisted Living of Palm Harbor from 4 to 6 p.m. May 16. 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).

  5. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
