DUNEDIN - Downtown Dunedin is known for a variety of attractions, including its quaint Main Street lined with shops, restaurants and art galleries; the scenic, well-traveled Pinellas Trail and a waterfront that is home to some of the most beautiful sunset vistas in the Tampa Bay area.

But as the population of this bustling little city along the Gulf Coast continues to expand, as evidenced by the recent building boom in and around downtown, another segment of Dunedin’s culture continues to grow, as well.

A few new breweries are scheduled to open downtown in the next few months - Cueni Brewing Co., 945 Huntley Ave., the Soggy Bottom Brewing Company at 662 Main St., and Caledonia Brewing in the old Dunedin Printing Company building a few blocks west. When completed, the trio will join the 7th Sun Brewing Co., the new Dunedin Woodwright, the Dunedin House of Beers and the granddaddy of them all, the Dunedin Brewery, to create a craft beer lover’s mecca, with no fewer than six breweries and brewpubs located within a mile of each other.

DUNEDIN - Nisha Mandani is no stranger to helping others. The 51-year-old Dunedin resident has been a special education teacher for more than 20 years, is an active member of the Red Cross, and through the charity she founded, the Our AIM Foundation, she started the award-winning GrandKids and Close2Heart programs, pairing kids with senior citizens to teach today’s youth what it’s like to live with disabilities and infirmities.

Two years ago, Mandani turned her attention to people in need of help outside of the country. The foundation’s Just One Humanity project is designed to bring sustainability to impoverished African villages, providing wells, livestock, electricity and other necessities to areas that are lacking the fundamental building blocks of modern society.

DUNEDIN - Establishing Dunedin as an “age-friendly” community in 2017 is one of the major goals set recently by the Dunedin Committee on Aging.

Meeting in its annual half-day planning workshop on Sept. 26, committee members said in a press release the application process to gain the designation “will require a lot of teamwork with city committees and organizations. The process is building upon the city of Dunedin’s assets and aspirations to optimize active, healthy and engaged living for all city residents.”

Dunedin would join 127 other communities in the United States, and nine in Florida, which have been named to the Network of Age Friendly Communities. Other Florida cities on the list include Miami-Dade, Winter Haven, St. Petersburg and Tallahassee.

DUNEDIN - Fans drive great distances to come to Florida Auto Exchange Stadium - sometimes simply to get their baseballs signed.

For 40 years the Jays have made memories in the community. Now, the team and city officials want to make more - for another 25 years.

Perhaps the biggest news recently to come out of Dunedin - a city that is full of news - is the announcement that the Jays and city officials have come to an agreement on plans to continue their 40-year relationship.
