Man indicted in dumbbell death

A Tarpon Springs man accused of killing his roommate with a 20-pound dumbbell was indicted by a grand jury last week on first-degree murder charges. Nick Seriganis, 28, was staying in an extra room in the Holiday house of Vincent Santoro III, 24, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. The two got into an argument Sept. 15, authorities said, and Seriganis hit Santoro with the dumbbell. Santoro's family found him dead two days later. Seriganis has been in prison three times before, for burglary, sexual assault of a child and failure to report as a sex offender. He is being held without bail at the county jail.


Cleaning crew gets complaints, quits

As cities try to cut corners, Dunedin found the lowest bidder may not be the best. A cleaning contractor that replaced city employees drew complaints and then left the job Oct. 31. City officials say Corporate Building Management of Clermont may have underbid the contract at about $233,000 for the year. "Maybe we are going to have to dig a little deeper, a little broader and really get to know how good these folks are," Commissioner Dave Eggers said at last week's meeting. The second-lowest bidder, United States Service Industries of Fort Myers, will cost $272,000. The price adds about $39,000 to this year's budget, but still saves more than $142,000 over using city employees. The city's facility maintenance staff has been filling in, some working 18 hours per day.
