A Spotlight On... Bob Heilman's Beachcomber
A tradition of excellence since 1948, Bob Heilman’s Beachcomber restaurant has played host to people from all over the world, some of whom return just to share this dining experience again. Heilman’s fine dining and professional wait staff may contribute to it’s success, but it truly prides itself on their time-honored dedication to freshness.
Heilman’s is a family-owned enterprise built on three generations of successful restaurant experience, starting with grandparents Ross and Elenora Heilman in Lorain, Ohio 1920. Then, Robert Heilman Sr. and Eva Nelle Heilman continued the legacy with Bob Heilman’s Beachcomber Restaurant on Clearwater Beach when Mandalay Ave was still sandy and unpaved. From the start they were famous for their “Back-to-the-Farm” fried chicken, but the philosophy founded in freshness remains as strong today as when the Heilman family began. The beef is prime, the fish is fresh daily, and the deserts, breads, and pastries (including the famous Heilman Hot Fudge) are still made on the premises.
Heilman’s was also the first Ocean Friendly business in all of Clearwater, and has been a member of the Clearwater Regional Chamber for at least 68 years. They are currently featuring
a pinot noir called Foxy Rock from their Vineyard in Oregon, and their own signature bourbon, made by their son, Bobby Heilman. Check out what daily fresh specials they have on www.heilmansbeachcomber.com

Underwater veteran memorial, the nation's first, officially opens off Pinellas County coast

CLEARWATER — More than 30 divers, including veteran amputees, counted down Monday before plunging into the choppy gulf waters miles off the Pinellas County coast. They were headed toward a dozen concrete U.S. service members standing in a circle formation 40 feet below.
The Circle of Heroes underwater veteran memorial, which creators call one-of-a-kind, officially opened to the public Monday after about a decade of planning. The six-foot statues and center monument bearing the bronze emblems of five military branches are meant to be a permanent fixture at Veteran’s Reef, honoring the armed forces and providing a unique diving experience for tourists and wounded warriors.
“I’m not surprised this came from the Tampa Bay area because we’re number one,” U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, said at the opening ceremony.
