The 28th annual MarineMax Clearwater Jazz Holiday is looking for hundreds of volunteers to help with every aspect of the free music event Oct. 18-21 at Coachman Park. Help sell merchandise, pour beer and wine, distribute soft drinks and water, or check IDs. If you have carpentry, electrical, plumbing or handyman skills, your help is needed to build and tear down the stage. To sign up, go online and click on Volunteers, or call the Jazz Holiday office at (727)461-5200 and ask for a registration form.


The wrong information appeared with Wednesday's Pet of the Week photograph. Penny is a 4-year-old female boxer. She weighs about 50 pounds and loves to go for walks. She is terrific on a leash. Penny will do best as an only dog. She is spayed, microchipped, dewormed and vaccinated. Please call Pet Pal Rescue at (727) 328-7738 or see all of the adoptable animals
