NEW PORT RICHEY
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.
