News Roundup

What you need to know for Monday, June 6

• As Tropical Storm Colin approaches the Florida panhandle this morning, the Tampa Bay region will be getting its own share of the severe weather. Schools are planning to stay open, but drivers should be aware of flash flood conditions and tornado warnings. Keep up with all of the action on our weather live blog, and find more information on the storm here.

• The Baltimore police officer who faces the most serious charge in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray heads to court with motions hearings being heard today. The third trial in the case will focus on what responsibility Officer Caesar Goodson Jr had for Gray the day he sustained a fatal neck injury in the back of a police van driven by Goodson, who is facing second-degree murder and other charges.

•Today marks the 72nd anniversary of D-day, when Allied forces began storming the beaches of Normandy, France, to liberate German-occupied Western Europe.

• Plan your week! Here are the top things to do this week in Tampa Bay, including World Oceans Day at the Florida Aquarium and Star Wars Night at the Trop with a Chris Archer Stormtrooper bobblehead giveaway.

• Runners can be fanatical, but Jim Behr of Trinity takes it to a new level. He runs every day. EVERY day. We're talking every day since March 19, 1975. He has one of the nation's top 10 longest streaks for consecutive days running. Look for his story this morning at tampabay.com/sports.

• Talk about rocking the boat. After a recent absence of several years, rock cruises — floating festivals that let fans rub shoulders with their favorite bands on the high seas — are returning to Tampa in a big way. At least a dozen cruises will depart Port Tampa Bay this year and next with rockers on board, including Train, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Melissa Etheridge, 311, Vince Gill, Chris Young, Keith Sweat, Joe Bonamassa and Yes.
