Have you heard the news today that your Amazon Prime membership will cost you an extra $20 this year? As a mom to a 1 and a half year old, I use online shopping, including Amazon, a lot more than I did before having him. It's more convenient for me a lot of times to just order something online instead of hauling my little guy in and out of the car and into stores to search for an item I need. I shop in person as much as I can because I enjoy it but I can't deny that I shop on
On May 4th, we're having our Spring Fundraising Campaign Kickoff event! It will be at the Land O Lakes Heritage Center (room 2) from 6pm to 8pm. You don't have to stay the entire time. Feel free to stop in at any time. The suggested donation is $25 though any amount under the $1,000 maximum contribution will be accepted. We'll have food, drinks, music, and some great conversation! I'm sure you've heard that running a campaign is not an easy or cheap task. It takes time,
OK, so that's a bit premature to say that we REQUIRE a canoe. If the Pasco County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) don't veto an insane idea of an underpass in Pasco County though, it's not that crazy of an idea. As our BOCC insists that we need to bulldoze through the Serenova Preserve in order to ease hurricane evacuations, they are refusing to veto an idea to build an underpass (you read that right, UNDERpass) at the intersection of 54 and 41. The cost of this projec
Just imagine... You live in Pasco County but work in St. Pete. Instead of every morning and evening sitting in parking lot traffic on I-275/ Veterans Expressway, you hop on a tram that tskes you right into St. Pete. Or... You live in Pasco County and want to attend the Lightning playoff game. Instead of calling an Uber or having to pay for parking and getting stuck in traffic, you hop on a tram that takes you right to the stadium. Or... You live in Wesley Chapel but want to
I've heard it time and time again (even from my own family members), "I don't vote because all the candidates are the same and I don't know what they're really all about." My response is "what did you do to learn about the candidates? Did you go to any of their events?" Usually the response is a big no. While not every candidate is out there at every event, there are many candidates that DO get out and meet people often. As voters, we have to be actively informed. We can'
The Pasco County Commissioners recently approved a wetlands purchase at a cost of $3.2 million for Pasco residents in order to "offset" the wetlands that would be destroyed by the Ridge Road extension. This was approved by the County Commissioners without a discussion. So in addition to the over $30 thousand a month, or more than $15 million over the past almost 20 years, we are now being told we need to pay even more for a road to nowhere. This project is expected to cost ov
Many cities in Pasco are having their municipal elections on April 10. This includes Dade City, Port Richey, New Port Richey, San Antonio, Saint Leo, and Zephyrhills. They will be voting on positions like city council members and mayors. Many people will often ignore all elections other than the general election in November. But if you want to make a difference in your local affairs, the non general elections is a good place to start. The city council is responsible for esta
