FHP releases name of motorcyclist killed in crash

A 27-year-old Spring Hill man who died Monday afternoon after his motorcycle crashed into another vehicle has been identified, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Stephen Gregory Hnat was riding a 2000 Honda motorcycle about 3:17 p.m. on Cortez Boulevard at the intersection of Fort Dade Avenue when he collided with a 1994 Isuzu Trooper driven by Johnnie Holloway, 74, of Brooksville, who was turning onto Fort Dade, the report states. The motorcyclist, who wore a helmet, later died at Brooksville Regional Hospital. Holloway suffered minor injuries, the report states.

Friends host open house at Chinsegut

The Friends of Chinsegut Hill will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 7 at Chinsegut Hill, off Snow Memorial Highway, just north of the fork at U.S. 41, north of Brooksville. As part of its "Save the Hill" fundraising efforts, the organization needs to raise $75,000 by May 13 to match a potential private foundation donation that would move management of the property to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. If the group is not successful in raising the money, the future of the state-owned property and its manor house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, will remain uncertain.
