Class helps kids prevent violence

Dade City

class helps kids prevent violence

Students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to participate in the free Summer Youth Leadership Institute held at Prevention Projects, 13743 U.S. 98 Bypass. Students will learn to become role models and leaders in preventing violence in their schools and communities, and will acquire skills needed for peer support, advocacy and community action. During the program, students will identify a problem relating to violence in their school or community and create a prevention project. The institute is not connected with Pasco County schools, so your student can earn community service or volunteer hours from Sunrise Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center, an accredited nonprofit organization. The institute meets from 1 to 4 p.m. Fridays, June 21 through August 9. Snacks will be provided. R.S.V.P. by Friday to Terri O'Brien at Sunrise by calling (352) 521-3358 or emailing tobrien@sunrisepasco.org.

Man arrested in shooting

Deputies made an arrest in connection with a shooting Monday night that left one man with a bullet wound in his stomach. Kevin Newkirk went to a home around 9:40 p.m. to pick up money owed to him and was confronted by Victor Guzman, a Pasco Sheriff's report states. The two argued. Guzman pulled out a .38-caliber Colt revolver and fired a round into Newkirk's stomach. Newkirk ran from the home at 9138 Pegasus Drive and down the street as Guzman fired five more shots after him but missed, the report states. Someone saw the incident and called 911. Deputies found Guzman, 55, and the revolver at his home at 9700 Grey Fox Lane early Tuesday morning. He was arrested on a charge of attempted murder. Newkirk, 32, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin. Guzman remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Tuesday in lieu of $150,000 bail.

  3. Editorial: Failure to invest in transit means fewer HART routes

    Editorials

    It was simple economics that forced HART, Hillsborough County's mass transit agency, to cut its bus routes. The agency will focus its resources on the more crowded urban core, limiting service in the suburbs in an effort to get more bang for the buck. These are the hard choices communities must make when they refuse to …

  4. Editorial: Senate bill sacrifices health care for tax cuts

    Editorials

    No wonder Senate Republicans drafted their health care legislation in secret. Beneath the surface, it looks no better than the House version that even President Donald Trump has called mean. This remains a massive tax cut for the wealthy at the expense of the poor, the middle class and the elderly, and it would cost …
