    CLEARWATER -- A 50-year-old woman fell 20 stories to her death from a Sand Key condominium early Friday morning in what appears to be a suicide, Clearwater police said.

    The woman jumped from the balcony of her unit at Lighthouse Towers Condominiums, 1290 Gulf Blvd., at about 12:07 a.m. Friday. She landed on grass and was killed, police said.

    Police said all signs indicate the jump was a suicide.

    Proceeds from trees festival disbursed

    The 16th annual Festival of Trees at Harborview Center in Clearwater raised $84,000, which was distributed last month to charities throughout Pinellas County. Recipients include Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, UPARC, Haven of RCS, the Watson Center, Equither, Friends of the Deaf Service Center and Foundation Village Neighborhood Family Center.
