New Port Richey's deputy mayor — a Red Sox fan — avoids voting with his heart


Deputy mayor avoids voting with his heart

City Council voted unanimously Tuesday evening to proclaim Friday as "Tampa Bay Rays Day." But one member needed a little nudging. "That includes you, too, Bob," Mayor Scott McPherson deadpanned to Deputy Mayor Bob Consalvo. Consalvo, a Maine native, is a lifelong Red Sox fan. On Wednesday, he worked out a political compromise within himself. The Red Sox have his heart, he said, "but obviously, if the Rays beat the Red Sox, that's fine."


Dead pedestrian was Tampa man

The man who was hit and killed Saturday night walking across U.S. 19 has been identified as Eric James Pedemonti, 42, of Tampa. Pedemonti was crossing the southbound lanes of U.S. 19, just north of Hudson Avenue, about 10 p.m. when he crossed the path of a 1994 Chevrolet sport utility vehicle driven by Donald W. Wills, 28, of Odessa, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. Pedemonti was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center, where he died of his injuries. His name was released Wednesday after his next-of-kin had been notified.
