Weekend dog show scheduled at Hernando County Fairgrounds

BROOKSVILLE — The Inverness Kennel Club's spring dog show will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Sunday at the Hernando County Fairgrounds, 6436 Broad St., Brooksville.

The American Kennel Club-sanctioned show will feature more than 900 entries competing for honors in seven breed groups.

The event was scheduled by the club after a legal dispute caused the cancellation of January's annual Florida Classic Clusters dog show, east of Brooksville. Beth Carr, chairwoman of this weekend's show, said the public is invited to attend.

Admission is $5 per carload.

The judging times for the show are available on the Inverness Kennel Club's Facebook page. For information, call (813) 997-3194.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
