For 21 years, the Kiwanis Club of Springtime City has sponsored the youth service project. Its members provided encouragement to the runners at major turns along the course, which loops twice around the school's perimeter.

The top 20 runners from each boys and girls race are recognized and team trophies go to the top two schools. This year's winners are the Largo girls and Countryside boys cross country teams.

On Sept. 28, approximately 85 diners queued up for chicken wings and chips at a "Wing-Ding" cook-off for Breast Cancer Awareness at the Dunedin-Clearwater Elks Lodge 1525 in Dunedin.

Elks members James "Smitty" Smith, Gary Richey and Lona Blue cooked and served enough wings for the lodge to make a $218 donation to Tampa's Moffitt Cancer Center. Earlier in the year, a similar food event raised money to help send underprivileged children to summer camp.

Also in September, 14 lodge members and two nonmembers visited with veterans and cooked for 120 residents and 40 nurses and staff at Baldomero Lopez State Veterans Nursing Home in Land O'Lakes.

The lodge's donation, which totaled $2,000, included the food, 20 lap robes, 100 decks of cards and 100 pairs of socks.

  2. Romano: One person, one vote is not really accurate when it comes to Florida


    Imagine this:

    Your mail-in ballot for the St. Petersburg mayoral election has just arrived. According to the fine print, if you live on the west side of the city, your ballot will count as one vote. Meanwhile, a ballot in St. Pete's northeast section counts for three votes.
