It's a rainy start to the week, find cheap gas, join our Local Voices, try to get a $2,000 dog park grant and more is going on in Clearwater Monday (June 25).
1. If the rainy weekend were not enough (thanks Tropical Storm Debby), expect up to a quarter inch of rain and gust of wind up to 30 mph with a high near 87, according to the National Weather Service. If you know of or have a rained out event or have a great weather related photo, let our readers (and other folks in Clearwater know). 2.

Get a gallon of regular unleaded for $3.12 at Sunoco, 11600 U.S. 19, according to tampagasprices.com. Don't forget to …
