Board to decide on new Gulf High principal




Board to decide on principal for Gulf High

Steve Knobl is set to become Gulf High School's new principal in June. Knobl, principal at Bayonet Point Middle for the past two years, announced the move to his staff Monday morning. If approved by the School Board this morning, Knobl, 36, would replace Tom Imerson, whom superintendent Heather Fiorentino tapped to work in the district administration in an unspecified position. Knobl, who began working for Pasco schools in 1994, said he looked forward to taking over a school with long traditions and a strong culture. "I anticipate the first six to 12 months being a great listener," he said. "It's not going to be a one-man show." The district plans to advertise the Bayonet Point Middle principal job for one week, beginning Wednesday.


Volunteers cleared 26 tons of trash

Pasco County got a good spring cleaning last month, with 756 volunteers collecting 26.33 tons of trash as part of the Great American Cleanup. That's more than three times the amount of garbage — 7.46 tons — collected during last year's event. Twenty-eight crews fanned out across the county April 19 to pick up trash along several major roads, as well as at Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park and other areas. Six haulers donated trash bins and employee time to support the cleanup, and Pasco County waived the tipping fees at the incinerator for the garbage that was collected.

  1. Senate Obamacare effort dies; Rubio in favor of repeal, Nelson against


    WASHINGTON - The Senate Republican effort to Obamacare failed early Friday, with John McCain providing a decisive vote.

  2. Senate ponders health care bill it doesn't want to be law


    Buoyed by a signal from House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced a pared-down health care bill late Thursday that he hoped would keep alive Republican ambitions to repeal Obamacare.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., left, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., expressed concerns about passing the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare without assurances of further negotiations.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  5. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
