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.

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.

    The Lightning, with a win tonight, would match the best start in franchise history, 7-1-1 in the 2003-04 Cup season.
  4. Study: Pollution kills 9 million a year, costs $4.6 trillion


    NEW DELHI — Environmental pollution — from filthy air to contaminated water — is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. More than smoking, hunger or natural disasters. More than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

    TAMPA — Jameis Winston hadn't thrown in practice since he injured his right shoulder in Sunday's loss at Arizona, and with that uncertainty, a wide line of TV cameras and reporters' cellphones were all out Friday morning, recording the moment as Winston tested his shoulder with his first throws early in …

    Despite a sore shoulder, Jameis Winston will be making his 38th consecutive start since being drafted first overall in 2015.
