Dade City residents advised to boil water


Area residents advised to boil drinking water

A break in a water line Monday morning left about 1,000 Dade City residents under a precautionary boil water notice until Wednesday afternoon. The notice applies to those living west of the U.S. 98 bypass, east of 13th Street, north of Willingham Avenue and south of Robinson Avenue. Officials are advising residents in that area to boil all water used for cooking or drinking for one minute. The necessary repairs have been made to the broken line, but water toxicology results won't be in until late Wednesday afternoon, officials said. For information, call the Dade City Utilities Department at (352) 523-5054.


Reward offered for tips about robbers

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of those responsible for a home invasion robbery that occurred in Zephyrhills at 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Two men with handguns forced their way into a home in the 5000 block of Ixora Street, bound the elderly victims with tape and robbed their home of cash and jewelry. One robber is described as white, 20 to 25 years old, about 6 feet tall, about 180 pounds, with brown eyes and short brown hair. The second robber, whose face was covered, is described as white, 20 to 25, with brown eyes, about 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-5 with a stocky to heavy build. Anyone with any information regarding the identity and whereabouts of the robbers is asked to call Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477) to be eligible for a cash reward, or report tips anonymously online at


Christine Ferreira is co-owner of a property in the Highlands that contains a portion of Meridian Boulevard. She is no longer married to the other co-owner, Chrysostomos Arianas. Ferreira said she opposes her ex-husband's plan to close the road unless the county buys it. While the two would split any proceeds from selling the land, Ferreira said, any extra money from selling or closing the road would go solely to Arianas. An article Friday was incorrect on those points.
