Big, Little Brother and Sister of the Year for Tampa Bay recognized

Big Brother Chris Butler of Largo and his Little Brother Elgin, who have been matched for more than five years, have been named the Big Brother and Little Brother of the Year for Big Brother Big Sister of Tampa Bay, the nation's fourth largest BBBS agency representing Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Citrus, Hernando and Sumter counties. Big Sister Roxanne Connor of Safety Harbor and her Little Sister Megan, who have been matched in the school-based program at Eisenhower Elementary School in Clearwater for the past three years, have been named the Big Sister and Little Sister of the Year. Big Brothers and Big Sisters are adult volunteers who are matched with children facing adversity (called "Littles") for professionally supported one-on-one mentoring. Last year BBBS Tampa Bay matched more than 2,850 children with caring, positive role models. The honorees are now eligible to compete for Florida's Bigs and Littles of the Year, which will be determined later this year.

    President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to be replaced as soon as this weekend with more targeted restrictions on visits to the United States that would vary by country, officials familiar with the plans said Friday. The new restrictions, aimed at preventing security threats from entering the United States, could go into effect Sunday after the conclusion of a 90-day policy review undertaken as part of the administration's original travel ban. Though the restrictions would differ for each country, people living in the targeted nations could be prevented from traveling to the United States or could face increased scrutiny as they seek to obtain a visa.
