Jan. 8, the Anthony Telesca Foundation and Knology, a corporate supporter, presented Countryside High students Brianna Kurzynowski and Ashley Weltz with awards for their winning entries in the annual Anthony Telesca Foundation Safe Driving Art Contest.

For her first-place entry, Kurzynowski received a prize of $200 and two round-trip airline tickets donated by JetBlue Airways. Weltz received $100 for her second-place entry. Awards are based on the poster that most effectively communicates to teenagers the dangers of unsafe driving practices.

The Telesca Foundation also provided $500 to the Countryside High art department on behalf of the two winners.

Principal Gerald Schlereth and state Rep. Carl Zimmermann, D-Palm Harbor, who is also a teacher at Countryside High, participated in the award presentations. Both are strong proponents of teenagers driving safely.

The Anthony Telesca Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works with public safety and law enforcement organizations, high school districts and community business leaders to help educate and encourage teenagers to drive safely.

  1. Florida reverses decision to shield information from nursing home inspection reports

    Health

    TALLAHASSEE — Florida regulators decided Friday they will abandon the use of software that allowed them to heavily redact key words from nursing home inspection reports posted online, choosing instead to link to the more complete reports available on a federal site.

    Officials for the state Agency for Health Care Administration said Friday they will no longer use software that allowed them to heavily redact key words from nursing home inspection reports posted online. The agency has been under increased scrutiny since Sept. 13, when eight residents of The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, pictured here, died after power was lost to an air-conditioning system during Hurricane Irma. Two more residents died this week. [South Florida Sun-Sentinel]
