Displaced principal lands new position

LAND O'LAKES

Displaced Gulf High principal has new job

Nearly two months after being removed from his school, former Gulf High principal Tom Imerson has a position at the Pasco County School District main office. He took over this week as supervisor of volunteer programs after a two-week vacation. Imerson replaces Holly Rockhill, who will move to an assistant principal slot at Land O'Lakes High. Superintendent Heather Fiorentino told the School Board that the move would be cost neutral, but Imerson earns about $28,000 a year more than Rockhill. Fiorentino has yet to fully explain why she pulled Imerson from Gulf High, although assistant superintendent Sandy Ramos said the new assignment fits Imerson's skills as a good writer with strong community outreach abilities. He's also expected to work with the district's high school design committee.

NEW PORT RICHEY

Shelter-clinic contract okayed

The County Commission signed off Tuesday on the contract to build a health clinic in Hudson that will double as a regional hurricane shelter. The joint venture with Spring Engineering and Bandes Construction calls for spending up to $7.5-million in federal and state money to design and build the facility. The much-delayed project could be substantially finished in August 2009, providing up to 1,000 beds for evacuees during an emergency. But construction must begin this year to keep up to $1.6-million in federal grant money. The feds recently granted the project a waiver to be built without meeting the more expensive tornado and wind standards.

    Blogs

    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
