Here are the top three stories in Dunedin today:

  1. Dunedin Public Library is hosting a virtual Author Talk with historian and Pulitzer Prize Winner, Dr. Marcia Chatelain. She will discuss her di lei Pulitzer prize-winning book di lei, Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America on August 3 at 2:00 PM. Chatelain’s book was written after she set out to answer the question of how fast-food restaurants so thoroughly saturated black neighborhoods. It reveals a surprising history of cooperation among fast-food companies, black capitalists, and civil rights leaders, who – in the troubled years after Dr. King’s assassination – believed they found an economic answer to the problem of racial inequality. Those interested in the event can register online now. (Dunedin Public Library)
  2. Sunday, July 31 is International Lifeguard Appreciation Day! Ellis and Associates established this special day in 2020 to celebrate the lifeguards who keep our waters and children safe during the swim season. If you are out enjoying the water at your local pool or beach, the City of Dunedin asks that you take a moment to thank the lifeguards for all they do. They prevent water-related accidents from happening by being vigilant and enforcing the rules. Lifeguards follow rigorous training in swimming, rescue, CPR, and AED so they can be ready to respond to an emergency when necessary. Be sure to let them know you appreciate their efforts this weekend! (Dunedin Patch)
  3. Progressive Arts in Dunedin has made the news for presenting Beauty and The Beast this weekend TONIGHT at 7:00 PM at the Scottish American Society and on Saturday at 2:00 PM at the Dunedin Community Center. The show will be performed by professionals and pre-professionals. Additionally, many children with special needs will partake in the shows. Director Kirstin Stiff-Walker referred to the show as “a dreamy, joy-filled production with a stunning score and storyline that captures the heart as the audience invests in Belle and the Beast even if they know the ending.” Get your tickets now for just $ 15!

From my notebook:

  • Pinellas County Government wants to remind you that during hot and humid weather, your body’s ability to cool itself is challenged. When your body heats too rapidly to cool itself properly, or when too much fluid or salt is lost through dehydration or sweating, you may experience a heat-related illness. Learn the symptoms of excessive heat exposure and the appropriate responses at the links. (Pinellas County Government via Facebook | Weather.gov)
