United way taps Consultant as its interim leader

A consultant with experience at other United Way organizations has been named interim leader of the United Way of Pasco County. Alexander Young, of NP Consulting Inc., will serve as interim president and CEO for the next four months while the Pasco nonprofit looks for a permanent replacement for Susan Arnett, who resigned last month to explore new opportunities. Young is the past president and CEO of the United Way of Sarasota County, Inc. He has also held other United Way positions, including resource development director with United Way of Central New York and director of marketing and resource development with the United Way of South Hampton Roads in Virginia. He is a founding member of several nonprofits, and provides consulting services in nonprofit board governance, donor relationship management, and planned giving. "Alex has already done a tremendous job energizing the staff," said Shawn Foster, who chairs United Way of Pasco's board of directors. "I spoke to several of them one-on-one and they are excited about the transition and are looking forward to the next few months."


Sheriff talks policing at public meeting

The meeting is open to the public and will be held at the Land O'Lakes Community Center, 5401 Land O'Lakes Blvd.


Driver to face trial Oct. 17 in girl's death

Betty Jo Tagerson, the woman accused of driving recklessly down her neighborhood street and crashing into a group of girls, killing one, is set to face trial Oct. 17. Tagerson, 40, faces charges of vehicular homicide, manslaughter and reckless driving for the November 2010 crash. Authorities say she drove away from her home on Kings Manor Avenue in Hudson after a fight with her boyfriend and lost control of her Jeep Cherokee. A set of 5-year-old triplets — Delaney, Gabrielle and Isabella Rossman — were playing with friends in their driveway and were hit. Delaney died the next morning. Gabrielle was severely injured but has since been released from the hospital. Tagerson's trial date could change if lawyers need more time, but Circuit Judge Michael Andrews also set a pretrial conference in August to ensure the case stays on track.
