Herman Home Design moves to roomier store

Herman Home Design Center is more than doubling its retail space with the purchase of an 8,300-square-foot facility at 646 Second Ave. S in St. Petersburg. The furniture retailer and design consultant moved out of 3,500 square feet in BayWalk and into the former printing facility with a large courtyard. "You typically wouldn't think of coming to Second Avenue S for something like this. I think this will just be the impetus for more development in this area," said City Council member Leslie Curran at the store's official opening recently. She was joined by Mayor Bill Foster and other council members who lounged on overstuffed furniture as they lauded the investment in St. Petersburg. Herman Home's lead designer, Ed Biggs, said the company considered moving to Sarasota, where he ran a business for 15 years, but sees a great future in St. Petersburg with so much residential development, especially downtown.

  4. Coming soon at two Tampa Bay area hospitals: a cancer treatment that could replace chemo

    Health

    A new cancer treatment that could eventually replace chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants — along with their debilitating side effects — soon will be offered at two of Tampa Bay's top-tier hospitals.

    Dr. Frederick Locke at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa is a principal investigator for an experimental therapy that retrains white blood cells in the body's immune system to fight cancer cells. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved these so-called "CAR-T" treatments for adults this month. In trials, 82 percent of cases responded well to the treatment, and 44 percent are still in remission at least eight months later, Locke said. [CHRIS URSO   |   Times]
