When Sweet Caroline's Bakery set up shop in November 2009, its vision was to establish a community-oriented neighborhood bakery. Since then, the business has been crafting "made from scratch" cakes, pies, pastries and breads — and folks in North Pinellas are indulging in them.
Proprietor Rich Cannici recently announced the opening of Sweet Caroline's Cafe, adjacent to the bakery at 3347 Tampa Road, Palm Harbor, in the Shoppes at Cloverplace.
A grand opening celebration and open house are scheduled at the bakery/cafe May 22. There will be entertainment and an opportunity for the public to sample a variety of treats.

Attention North Pinellas high school students: Here's an opportunity to learn about the law this summer and get paid for it.
The Clearwater Bar Association has announced its 2013 Student Legal Intern Program. To qualify, students must live in or attend school in north Pinellas County and have completed ninth grade but not yet graduated from high school.
The six-week program provides a valuable work experience, furthers understanding of the law and provides a mentor relationship. The program is hosted by Clearwater Bar members, the Clearwater Bar Foundation and the Florida Bar Local Government Law Section. The interns will work with attorneys, judges, law firms and legal departments.
Interns will perform a variety of duties for their employers as they learn about the inner workings of law offices, legal departments and the judicial system during the paid internships that run June 10 through July 19.
To be considered for the program, students must submit an application, a school transcript, two letters of recommendation and prepare an essay: "Tell us why this internship is an important opportunity for you." Deadline for submissions is Friay. Qualifying applicants will be interviewed the week of May 20. Applicants who would benefit the most from this experience will be given top priority regardless of grade point average.
Interns will also attend an orientation and job skills workshops focusing on issues such as confidentiality, professionalism, punctuality, attention to detail and appearance.
