Woman accused of shooting ex-boyfriend

A woman shot her ex-boyfriend in the stomach about 5:40 p.m. Wednesday at 8727 Goshen Lane, authorities said. Pasco County sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said the ex-boyfriend showed up at the woman's Embassy Hills home and she shot him during an argument. The man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Doll said. Authorities have not released the names of the people involved.

Two rest areas closed for updates

It might mean little to Pasco residents, who presumably have access to restrooms and snacks, but travelers take heed: Highway officials closed the two rest areas on Interstate 75 just north of State Road 56 for $25 million in renovations. Both rest areas are expected to reopen in spring 2011 featuring additional parking for trucks and new and improved buildings with expanded restrooms. A contractor hired by the Florida Department of Transportation will be demolishing and rebuilding the northbound and southbound rest areas in Pasco County at mile marker 278. The northbound rest area is north of State Road 56 (Exit 275); the southbound facility is south of County Road 54 (Exit 279). The entire rest area will be closed to the public during the project. Motorists will not be able to exit I-75 to the rest area properties. The next open rest areas are 29 miles north at mile marker 307 in Sumter County (6 miles north of State Road 50/U.S. 98, Exit 301); and 40 miles south at mile marker 238 in Hillsborough County (2 miles south of State Road 674, Exit 240).
