Wiregrass Ranch principal Ray Bonti to retire in June

WESLEY CHAPEL — Wiregrass Ranch High School principal Ray Bonti announced Thursday that he will retire at the end of the school year. He plans to become an education consultant.

"I do have a lot of energy left," said Bonti, who has worked for the Pasco school district for 25 years. "I want to get out and do other things."

Bonti has been the only principal at Wiregrass Ranch. He said he loves working with the students, and feels blessed to have worked with "so many talented teachers." Together, he said, they developed a model high school that Wesley Chapel can be proud of.

The school has had the county's top graduation rate, top Advanced Placement passing rate and highest number of school choice requests. "I feel like a champ," he said. "I'm going to go out on the top."

    Well, that didn't take long.

    After only three movies, the Lego franchise is already a shadow of its original self, less irreverent and go-for-broke bricky. The watering down of an ingenious formula comes with The Lego Ninjago Movie, the sort we expected all along from plastic construction toys.
