Captain's Party to benefit PHCC foundation

What do a fishing excursion, a laptop computer and a two-dimensional wall sculpture of a pensive clown have in common? All three are among the items available at the Captain's Party and Silent Auction at 6 p.m. Thursday to benefit the Pasco-Hernando Community College Foundation. Perhaps the most coveted item on the block is the redesigning services of Stephan Alpert, who designed several rooms for the British royal family, including the queen's sitting room and a nursery for Princes William and Harry. The party will be at Heritage Springs Golf & Country Club, 11345 Robert Trent Jones Parkway. For tickets, call (727) 816-3707, visit or buy them at the door.


Cotee River cleanup set for Saturday

The annual Cotee River cleanup is Saturday morning. Volunteers will meet at the Sims Park boat ramp at 8 a.m. to get trash bags and gloves. The first 100 volunteers also get a T-shirt. The cleanup runs until 11:30 a.m., when lunch will be served at the Sims Park picnic shelter. Volunteers can use their own boats or walk along city parks. Call the city recreation department at (727) 841-4560.
