Tenting for termites is a big job

Melvin Caldwell, 50, of St. Pete Termite & Pest Control, helps tent the St. Petersburg Free Clinic Friday morning, August 29, 1014. The job is a big one, but not the biggest Caldwell has helped with. "We go by cubic feet so we know how much gas to use. This building is 500,000 cubic feet," he says, but he remembers tenting Jannus Landing. "Janus landing was a million and six. We did John's Pass too. That was a million and three."

  1. No easy answer to the Dunedin parking question

    Local Government

    DUNEDIN — Nothing has been more divisive in this city than the issue of paid parking.

    A server at Cafe Alfresco (background) claims Dunedin's new paid parking has cost him money. Dunedin began a paid parking last October. Nine months in, residents, business owners and city officials all share mixed feelings.
