Woman's body found behind Cypress Trail Apartments

Deputies are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found Tuesday afternoon in the woods behind an apartment complex. There were no signs of foul play, said Pasco Sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin. Investigators have not yet identified the woman, who appeared to be in her late 50s to early 60s, Tobin said. It was not immediately clear if she was a resident of the nearby Cypress Trail Apartments. Tobin said the woman was found about 10 feet in the woods behind the apartments at 7250 and 7260 Broadmoor Drive. A medical examiner will determine the cause of the woman's death.


All Craft Marine gets $25,000 grant

As a thank-you for bringing a new business — and new jobs — into the city, council members have awarded a $25,000 grant to a boat manufacturer. All Craft Marine will get $15,000 up front for its first year in business, then $5,000 for each of the following two years, under a plan the City Council approved Monday evening. The money will come from a pot that's set aside in this year's budget for economic incentives, said City Manager Jim Drumm. The business was previously located in Dade City, but a need for more space prompted a move to a 50,000-square-foot building on Country Road 54 that was once occupied by the Vitality plant. Craft Marine spent about $68,000 on building improvements, much of it electrical, said John Lucius, one of the owners. Lucius said the company plans to build up to 300 boats ranging from 22 to 32 feet in the next year and a half, with a labor force of 30 to 50 people. "We want to hire locally as much as we can," Lucius said. In other business, the council added three months to a 12-month moratorium on granting permits to Internet sweepstakes cafes. Drumm said a study is wrapping up, but officials need time to finish their recommendations.
