Mayor fills key positions following departures

A city representative confirmed Wednesday morning that St. Petersburg Mayor Ken Welch will announce high-profile appointments to his administration today. 

The new hires follow resignations from his communications director and second-in-command nearly two weeks ago amid bullying allegations. Welch will only fill one of those roles, as he announced his intention to eliminate the position of deputy mayor - formerly held by Stephanie Owens - in a Sept. 8 press conference.

Local expert distills the global importance of beer

While the St. Petersburg Conference on World Affairs (SPCWA) typically focuses on critical, timely international issues, Tuesday's special event was decidedly lighthearted.

The SPCWA hosted University of South Florida Anthropology Professor John W. Arthur and Ren LaForme, author and managing editor at the Poynter Institute, for an informative discussion titled “Beer: 13,000 Years of World Influence." In honor of the subject matter, the SPCWA held Tuesday night's event at The Ale and the Witch in Downtown St. Petersburg.
