Lake Padgett to hear about sheriff's budget

Council opposes landfill near city

At Monday's Zephyrhills City Council meeting, council members voted 4 to 1 to approve a resolution opposing a proposed landfill on the outskirts of the city. Some city residents were concerned about health and environmental risks that the landfill might pose to the area. Councilman Daniel Burgess voted against the resolution, saying he was neutral on the matter.


Beebe resolves financial troubles

A failed business venture had Commissioner Curtis Beebe flirting with foreclosure earlier in the year, but the matter has since been resolved, Beebe said. In 2004, Beebe started Consultant U, a virtual company that developed training curriculum for Microsoft consultants. Consultant U never took off and was eventually shut down. In 2007, Beebe landed a full-time job with Ibis Inc., a technology company and former Consultant U client. But it took him a while to get back on his feet financially after the failed business endeavor. Beebe fell behind on his mortgage payments and by April, he faced foreclosure on his Church Avenue home. Beebe said he had has since worked out a repayment schedule with his lenders and no longer faces losing his home.

  1. Comedian and activist Dick Gregory dies at 84


    The comedian Dick Gregory rose to national prominence in the early 1960s as a black satirist whose audacious style of humor was biting, subversive and topical, mostly centered on current events, politics and above all, racial tensions. His trademark was the searing punchline.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
