CLEARWATER - City commissioners tonight are scheduled to discuss whether to give a Clearwater Beach restaurant the approval it needs to sell beer and wine. Chubby's Cafe & Pizza at 490 Mandalay Ave. needs special permission to sell beer and wine because it is near residentially zoned property and another business with a liquor license. The commission meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 112 S Osceola Ave. Smoldering curtain causes smoke at Sun Coast Hospital LARGO - A fire reported Wednesday in a room at Sun Coast Hospital turned out to be only a smoldering curtain. Some smoke was created, but no one was injured. No one was evacuated from the hospital at 2025 Indian Rocks Road. Largo fire officials said a curtain separating beds in a room was placed over a wall-mounted lamp. The lamp's hot bulb melted the curtain, causing smoke. Largo man appointed to seat on Indian Rocks Fire District INDIAN ROCKS BEACH - Benert Rubin has been appointed to an at-large commission seat on the Indian Rocks Fire District, said Pat Stryker, secretary to the commission. Rubin of Largo was one of three applicants vying for the position, which had belonged to Commissioner Frank Morris. Morris recently was appointed to the seat representing Indian Rocks Beach, which Commissioner Ralph Finke vacated to run for mayor of Indian Rocks Beach. Rubin's experience includes 10 years as a board member or chairman of the South Blooming Grove Fire District in New York, Stryker said. Besides Rubin, two people applied for the volunteer post: Kris Robinson of Indian Rocks Beach and Terrence Siple of Largo. Rubin's term expires in January, Stryker said. An election will be in November to determine who will take over the seat for the next four years.
