Many think our troops are returning home and that the war is over. To the contrary, there are still 101,000 troops in Afghanistan alone. While approximately 30,000 of them are scheduled to be withdrawn by December of 2012, which will still leave close to 70,000 men and women in an increasingly dangerous war zone.

The University of South Florida, in collaboration with Student Veterans Association and Circle K International are coordinating the “Remember Our Heroes Concert and Field Day” charity event on Sept. 8th 2012 to benefit the nonprofit organization, Soldiers Angels and therein the military personnel serving overseas and their families.

Clearwater Dolphins - Leave a Map-Trail

Although fans are sad to see the Clearwater Beach Dolphin Art Exhibit at Pier 60 leave the park as scheduled on Sept 4th - it’s not over yet - each of the 50 dolphins will leave a trail and map for their fans to follow.
 
You can see them too if you hurry – through September 4th 2012.

What started in July as a pod of 38 quickly grew to 50 creatively decorated 6-foot tall dolphins. In just 3 weeks, a team of artists turned each of the 80-pound fiberglass dolphin-shaped figures (provided by Icon Poly Studio in Gibbon, Neb)  into a uniquely fun art exhibit that colorfully enhances the already beautiful view at the entrance of Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach.

Todd Rundgren, who has written hit songs such as “Hello, It’s Me”, “Bang the Drum All Day”, “Love in Action” and “Can We Still Be Friends”, is currently on tour in support of his latest album release Arena, one his most critically-acclaimed albums in years. 

 Ruth Eckerd Hall and the City of Clearwater have joined forces to renovate the historic Capitol Theatre, and patrons at the Todd Rundgren concert will get a rare glimpse of one of the oldest operating theatres in Florida. Further major renovations will begin later this year.  Currently Ruth Eckerd Hall is in the planning stages to raise funds to renovate the theatre to restore it to its 1921 grandeur.
