WAlmart market in old Publix in South Pasadena?

About two years after Publix vacated South Pasadena Shopping Center, employees in neighboring businesses have heard talk of a Walmart Neighborhood Market moving in. "We're in discussions with a number of tenants, and we can't confirm anything," said Ben McLeish, Colliers International director of retail services, who is leasing the shopping center. "I'm trying to come up with a positive outcome to a wonderful shopping center that's over 50 years old." When Publix moved to a nearby Albertsons store it bought in 2009, it left behind 41,884 square feet. The Walmart grocery store at 6900 U.S. 19 in Pinellas Park is 41,869 square feet. Talk about your perfect fit.

New eatery hopes to draw holiday crowds

To the owners and workers at Jonny Reno's Waterfront Grille and Watering Hole, a new spot taking shape at the Pier, this weekend must feel like a massive wave rolling toward them. And they want to catch it. Jon La Budde, who also owns the Reno Beach Surf Shop and is a partner in the restaurant, said Monday that he hopes to have 90 percent of the work done at the former Capt. Al's Waterfront Restaurant by Friday. "I hate opening before it's completely decorated," he said. But he wants to take advantage of the weekend crowds. La Budde did caution that he'll have a scaled-down menu, in deference to his newness and to the numbers of people who will be making the Pier their base of operations for the Fourth of July. But after that, he said, expect a grand opening sometime soon.

    WASHINGTON — The suddenly resurgent Republican effort to undo the Affordable Care Act was dealt a blow on Tuesday when a bipartisan group of governors came out against a proposal gaining steam in the Senate.
