Have your say about proposed changes to THE Bus

The Hernando County Commission is accepting public comment regarding proposed changes to THE Bus, the county's fixed-route transit system. Proposed changes will increase the frequency of bus travel along the routes. Routes will also be extended to the Pasco-Hernando Community College Spring Hill campus and provide for uninterrupted service between Brooksville and Spring Hill. To do this will require the addition of another bus to the Purple route. Minor adjustments to the Spring Hill Red and Blue routes are also planned. Send comments to Dennis Dix at dennisd@hernandocounty.us or Steve Diez at stevend@hernandocounty.us. Comments may also be mailed to Hernando County Planning Department, 20 N Main St., Room 262, Brooksville, FL 34601. Call (352) 754-4057.

  3. In Syria's Raqqa, IS makes last stand at city's stadium

    World

    BEIRUT — U.S.-backed, Kurdish-led forces battling the Islamic State group in Syria captured the city hospital in Raqqa on Tuesday, leaving IS militants holed up at the local stadium, their last stand in the fight over what was once the extremists' de facto capital.

    This frame grab from video released Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017 and provided by Furat FM, a Syrian Kurdish activist-run media group, shows Syrian Islamic State group fighters who surrendered entering a base of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), in Raqqa, Syria. A spokesman for the SDF in Syria says it will be in control of the northern city of Raqqa "within a few days" after attacking the last pocket held by the Islamic State group. SDF fighters launched an operation to retake the last IS-held pocket of Raqqa after some 275 militants and their family members surrendered. [Furat FM via AP]
