20th Annual Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic Clearwater Florida. Photo by Nick Anderson The 20th Annual “Say No to Drugs” Holiday Classic 5K - 10K Run

Clearwater Florida, December 20, 2008 - Once again, a team of over 200 volunteers ranging from local business executives to children of the community worked together to orchestrate what has become one of the premier races in the Tampa Bay area. Top runners in prior years have included six-time World Ironman Triathlon Champion Mark Allen, Canadian Olympian Peter Maher, American Olympian Ronnie Holassie, Swiss Olympian Dan Otz as well as local Clearwater stars Mary Level-Menton and Judy Mercon-Maguire.

This year Heather Gollnick, 5-time Ironman champion and past national and world champion at national and world duathlon level, placed 4th overall.

The 20th Annual Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic drew 940 runners. “Last year we had 805, which was our previous highest ever year. What makes this [statistic] even more spectacular is that, this year, we were up by 140 runners with 3 other races taking place the same morning in Tampa, St. Pete and Tarpon Springs – with one of them sponsored by ESPN! Last year we were the only race on that day, so [this year] we’re especially pleased…” Race Director Chris Alexander proudly remarked.

Adam Sigal at the Gasparilla Film Festival The Gasparilla Film Festival ends Sunday, but when the lights go out and the projector stops, a Clearwater film writer hopes his career will take off in Hollywood. "The film making process was very long," said film writer Adam Sigal. Twenty-five-year-old Sigal left for Hollywood just after graduating from Clearwater High School. Watch this interview here.
He will remember the name of his film, "Daydreamer," blinking in big red lights at the Gasparilla Film Festival. Yeah, it's a dream," Sigal said. "I don't want to say it's a daydream because I would like for it to be happening more often."

The festival is a chance to get someone to buy his first-ever feature film. It does a couple things," Sigal said. "It gets my name out there to some extent. I meet a lot of people who are in the industry: investors, producers and directors and all that kind of stuff. It's kind of a promotional thing for me."
