History notes: For whom the bell tolls

Dunedin’s First Presbyterian Church celebrates its sesquicentennial this year, making it one of the oldest churches in South Florida. What story from its early years captures its enduring mission?

The American Red Cross says it’s experiencing an emergency blood and platelet shortage, and its national blood inventory is at its lowest level since 2015. The supply of types O positive and O negative blood, the most needed blood types by hospitals, dropped to less than a half-day supply at times over the past month.
