Hard-won dignity

ST. PETERSBURG — Pinellas Sheriff's Office community policing deputies and 27 residents of Pinellas Safe Harbor, the emergency homeless shelter in Clearwater managed by the Sheriff's Office, cleaned up the Gandy Boulevard area Wednesday.

They picked up trash along the beaches and the median. The volunteers joked that it would nice to find a million dollars, but the most interesting finds were half a dozen golf balls.

"This isn't about Gandy Beach," said Deputy Jason Brown. "It's about the Safe Harbor residents feeling dignified and giving back."
