FHP: wife's car rolls over man; he dies later

A 72-year-old woman who got out of her car to help her husband after he fell saw the car accidentally roll over and kill him Wednesday afternoon, the Florida Highway Patrol said. At 12:29 p.m., Patricia Anzalone and John Anzalone, 77, were headed to a barbershop, when she drove through a parking lot at 11636 U.S. 19, just south of State Road 52, and stopped to park her 2002 Toyota sedan. Her husband got out of the vehicle and fell. Patricia Anzalone got out to help him, but left the car in gear, the highway patrol said. The car rolled forward over John Anzalone, the highway patrol said. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. The accident is under investigation by the FHP.

Publix is closing store; no jobs lost

The Publix at U.S. 19 and State Road 52, the anchor tenant at Bayonet Point Plaza and the longtime grocery store for many Beacon Woods residents, is closing next month. Publix spokeswoman Shannon Patten said company officials had decided that the store was no longer needed because of the new, larger store in the former Albertson's at SR 52 and Little Road, less than a mile away. "Because it's somewhat larger, we have the ability to offer a variety of products that we can't offer at smaller locations," she said. Patten said the company is committed to rehiring the 88 employees at the closing location at other stores near their homes. "Nobody's going to be losing their job," she said. Employees were informed of the closing Monday. The store's last day is May 2. The shopping center is owned by Ohio-based DDR Point Plaza LLC.
