Bloodmobile open during Remodeling

If you're planning to give blood in the next few weeks, take note: The Wesley Chapel office of Florida Blood Services will be closed for remodeling from Aug. 10 through Sept. 14. But, a bloodmobile will be stationed in front of the office, located at 5319 Village Dr. The bloodmobile will be there from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays — and also on two Mondays; Aug. 25 and Sept. 1. If you want to donate, you can walk in or make an appointment, which can be done online by going to and using the code TB032. All donors receive a free movie ticket and a wellness checkup.

Deputy in crash leaves hospital

A Pasco sheriff's deputy who was airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital after a single-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon was released later that night, Sheriff's Office spokesman Kevin Doll said. Jeffrey E. Tanner, 47, was driving to work in his marked patrol car when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a power line pole just before 4:30 p.m. The 2007 Chevy Impala then hit a garbage can and rolled onto its right side and struck a barbed wire fence, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Tanner was walking around the scene of the accident, but was taken to the hospital because he felt back pain, Doll said. He was released at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. Tanner "is probably going to be sore the next few days," but will be fine, Doll said.


Water advisory in effect at center

A water advisory was issued Wednesday for the Energy and Marine Center after officials found high levels of fecal bacteria in the water. Exposure to the bacteria can cause human disease, infections or rashes. Similar advisories remain in effect at Hudson Beach (officially known as Robert J. Strickland Beach), Brasher Park Beach and Green Key beach (officially known as Robert K. Rees Beach). The Pasco County Health Department says the water at those facilities pose "a potential health risk to the bathing public."
