Police seek two men in shooting at residence

The two men approached the victim and his 27-year-old girlfriend at the victim's duplex about 11 p.m., took the victim inside and shot him with a small-caliber handgun, Dade City police reported. The girlfriend was knocked on the ground outside the residence and was not injured. The men rummaged through her purse and took cash, police said. After the shooting, the woman drove her boyfriend to Pasco Regional Medical Center, where he is in stable condition, police said. The shooters are described as men age 18 to 25.

Gulf High principal seeks Hernando job

Gulf High School principal Steve Knobl has made no secret of his desire to be a superintendent some day. So when the Hernando County school district announced it would seek another round of applicants for its vacant assistant superintendent position, Knobl decided to go for it. "It's a scenario that's intriguing," said Knobl, a 15-year veteran of the Pasco district, who took over the Gulf High job a year ago. "By no means does applying mean I'm going to get the job. … It is just something to explore." Knobl, who ran Bayonet Point Middle School for two years before his assignment to Gulf High, is completing his doctorate in education in the fall.
