Print shop positioned for big business

After outgrowing smaller facilities in Land O'Lakes, owners Kent and Cindy Ross have moved RP&G printing to Lutz.

A lot of small businesses have demanding printing needs, Kent Ross said, but are not always equipped with modern printing capabilities.

"We have that experience and technical knowledge," he said.

Ross said Lutz is a perfect location for the company because it can serve Hillsborough and Pasco counties.

The company offers graphics design, full-color and digital printing, raised thermography, foil stamping, and a robust Web page ( on which clients can view online proofs of their projects before printing.

Find them at 18125 U.S. 41 N, Suite 107. Call (813) 949-5700.

Sports bar fumbles

It appears that the Carrollwood sports bar Fourth and Inches is no more.

While signs still hang outside, the lights have been off for several weeks, and the phone is disconnected.

Fourth and Inches, at 4535 Gunn Highway, was known for karaoke nights and online trivia contests where patrons used small hand-held devices to compete against each other, and against players in other bars.

Also missing in action is the longtime north Tampa fixture Arigato Japanese Steak House at 13755 N Dale Mabry Highway. The restaurant suffered a small fire in a storeroom, and although a recording tells callers that owners "hope to reopen at the end of the month," that message has been playing since the beginning of March.

But fear not. Dale Del Bello Jr., son of the restaurant's founder and president, hinted that there might be a relocation. Stay tuned.

  2. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts


    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
