Pasco County Reporter

The North Suncoast and the Times have been my home since I graduated from the Ohio State University more than 35 years ago. Every day I get to come work for one of the country’s finest newspapers with talented co-workers who share my passion for informing our readers about their community. From the latest development plan near your neighborhood to the newest road project to impact your commute, there is no more relevant journalism than what we do here in Pasco County. I cherish your input, suggestions and story ideas.
