Forget beach swimming for this weekend
If you were planning on going to the beach this weekend, you may want to reconsider. The Pasco County Health Department issued water advisories Friday for Hudson beach (officially known as Robert J. Strickland Beach), Oelsner Park Beach and Gulf Harbors Beach after finding high levels of fecal bacteria in the water. Exposure to the bacteria can cause disease, infections or rashes. The Health Department says the water poses "a potential health risk to the bathing public."
Last chance to recycle directories
Today is the last day of the phone book recycling drive by RESORCE. You can drop off your yellow-paged tomes between 9 and 11 a.m. in the parking lots of all three west Pasco Home Depot stores (U.S. 19 and Fox Hollow Drive in Port Richey; Little and Ridge roads in New Port Richey; and U.S. 19 and Flora Avenue in Holiday), as well as three Publix locations (Hudson Avenue and Little Road in Hudson; Seven Springs Boulevard and Chelsea Place in New Port Richey; and Decubellis and Ridge roads in New Port Richey).
The Pasco Italian American Civic Club holds bingo at 5 p.m. Thursdays. An item in Thursday's Pasco Times gave the wrong day.
