Newly installed superintendent Kurt Browning said the district is 34th out of 67 school districts — and that must improve.
Pasco County is currently ranked 34th out of 67 school districts — and new Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning said he is not content with being average. “You’re looking at the face of a very unhappy superintendent,” he said during a speech before the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce Wednesday. “I’ve never been happy with mediocre.” The only way to move the district forward, Browning said, is to make “radical changes.” Browning said his staff knows never to tell him that something is done a certain way in the district because that’s the way it’s always been. Since Browning’s swearing in in November, the district has reduced the number of assistant superintendents from four to two and has done away with the structure of segregating the …

The Tampa Bay Young Republicans say Colorado’s loss could be the Bay’s gain. What do you think about it?
As the Wild West gets milder due to gun control laws a manufacturer that produces high-capacity gun magazines is looking to move out of Colorado. The Tampa Bay Young Republicans want that manufacturer, Magpul Industries, to roll out of Boulder and land somewhere in Hillsborough County, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The company makes gun magazines that hold up to 30 rounds and has about 200 people on its payroll, the Times reported. Magpul's motto is "Unfair Advantage," according to its website. The passage of a law in Colorado that bans gun magazines that hold more than 15 rounds has made Boulder a rather unwelcoming place for the company. The Young Republicans want to capitalize on Colorado’s loss by turning it into what they see as a…

The Florida Legislature is considering a law that will make it legal for wine drinkers to get their fix by the keg. What do you think of the idea?
Keg parties might take on a more sophisticated tone if a bill now before the Florida Senate meets with the same unanimous approval it received in the House. State lawmakers want to make it legal for winemakers to sell spirits by the keg – a move that’s already been adopted by 48 other states, according to the Tampa Bay Business Journal. The law, sponsored by Rep. Frank Artiles, R-Miami, must clear the Senate and Gov. Rick Scott’s office before it’s finalized. The idea behind the proposed law is to strike a “Prohibition-era rule” from the books while easing the pressure on processors. It’s also hoped to have positive environmental impacts by reducing reliance on glass bottles especially in restaurants where dozens of bottles can be opened …
