The DayStarter: Pasco deputies ditch their Glocks — and what inspectors find in people's attics

There could be patchy, dense fog early this morning, according to 10Weather WTSP. That should give way to another warm, muggy day topped off by scattered storms as the evening arrives.

• Egyptian naval ships scouring the Mediterranean Sea found passenger belongings and parts of the fuselage of an EgyptAir plane that crashed yesterday, killing all 66 people on board, the country's military spokesman said this morning. The statement, which said the partial debris was discovered about 180 miles off the coast of the Egyptian city of Alexandria, followed earlier confusion in which authorities were forced to retract claims that the wreckage had been found late yesterday.

• A home inspector tells real estate reporter Susan Taylor Martin about the critters he has encountered during his work, and what else he finds in people's attics.

• One of the most important decisions a law enforcement agency can make is what sidearm to provide its officers. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office recently changed handguns, choosing to trade in its Glock 23s for Sig Sauer P320s. Glock is the favored brand of most Tampa Bay area agencies, but sheriff's officials will discuss the economical and tactical reasons why the agency made the switch at the sheriff's gun range in Dade City at 11 a.m. Follow Josh Solomon on Twitter (@Josh_Solomon15) for updates.

• There's no shortage of candidates running for the Hillsborough County Commissions' countywide District 6 seat and both Republicans and all four Democrats will be at the Tampa Tiger Bay Club's 11:30 a.m. forum at the Chester H. Ferguson Law Center in downtown Tampa. Follow William March on Twitter (@WilliamEMarch) for updates.

• Here are the top things to do today around Tampa Bay, including A Night at the Brewseum (including Nerf gun blackjack!) in Tampa, Half Moon Run at the State Theatre in St. Pete and more.

• We talked with the Monkees' Peter Tork, who will be performing with fellow Monkee Micky Dolenz in Clearwater tonight, about the band's 50th anniversary tour — and why they caught on so quickly with teens. They also have a bright, snappy new album, Good Times!, that features an inspired cast of songwriters, much like the original Monkees hits, says pop music critic Jay Cridlin.
