Tarpon Springs seminar explains steps to starting a business


Seminar offers tips on starting a business

Times are tough, there's no doubt about that. But if you're thinking about starting your own business, here's a chance to hear from some experts. The Tarpon Springs Library will host a seminar called Ten Steps to Starting Your Own Business, presented by the Pinellas chapter of the Service Corps of Retired Executives. The seminar will run from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the library, 138 E Lemon St. For information, call (727) 943-4922.


Moms get a break on Wednesdays

Need a break, Mom? The Dunedin Community Center will be hosting Mom's Morning Out from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesdays, beginning this week. Activities for children ages 3 to 5 (must be potty-trained) include games, music, crafts and playing on the center's Boundless Playground. The daily fee is $10 with Dunedin Recreation Card or $15 without. For information, call the Parks and Recreation Department at (727) 812-4530.


Find your way with charts and tools

Flotilla 11-1 of the Coast Guard Auxiliary will offer an eight-lesson program on Basic Coastal Navigation beginning Thursday and ending Oct. 27. Participants meet Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Clearwater Sailing Center, 1001 Gulf Blvd., Sand Key. Participants will learn how to use charts and plotting tools. The $75 fee covers books, materials and chart plotting tools. For information, call (727) 469-8895.


Spend time with charity as a gift

Everyone likes to give during the holidays, but it gets expensive. Here's a thought from the First Presbyterian Church of Dunedin: Consider a gift of yourself. Commit to give a day or an afternoon to a local charity. You can let that gift be given in honor of your loved ones. To share ideas on how to give, the church is holding a mission fair from 8:30 a.m. to noon Oct. 5 at the church, 455 Scotland St. There will be exhibits from 15 missions as well as a fair-trade international gift shop for traditional gifts. For information, contact Diana Carsey at (727) 409-5415 or


Sign up for library card, get free book

Youths 18 and younger will receive a free book when they sign up for a library card during September at the city library, 138 E Lemon St. Parents should bring picture identification and proof of residency. Books were donated by Friends of the Library. For information, call 943-4922.

  4. Bar review: Les Partners Lounge goes old-school in Clearwater

    Bars & Spirits

    There are some local places that I'm shocked aren't more well known, and I think that's the result of a general aversion to stepping out of one's comfort zone. I make regular concerted efforts to step outside of mine, which often leads me to strange and rewarding drinking establishments.

    Les Partners Lounge is an old-school, smoker-friendly cocktail lounge and live music venue tucked away in a nondescript shopping plaza in Island Estates.
