Beware of falling oyster

Published Oct. 6, 2005

Linda Kloss and a Kirk Construction Co. worker assess the damage to her car Friday at Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe on Clearwater Beach. Workers were trying to mount a fiberglass oyster atop a pole when the mollusk and the lift holding it fell on Kloss' Toyota while she was having lunch. It was the second attempt to raise the oyster, which came through the fall unscathed. Workers hope to get the oyster on the pole this morning.
