Officials at Tampa International Airport gave us a look what that $543 million dollars second phase of planned improvements will look like. Part of that will be a curbside drop-off for passengers without luggage and taking seventeen acres of undeveloped property and using that for retail space. We’ll show you more here.

School hours will not chance for Hillsborough County students for now. New hours will be announced at the School Board meeting on April 25th but those will not go into effect until August 2018. We have complete details on those new start times right here.

St Pete Police have new lighter, bullet-resistant vests. They still can handle all the equipment they need to carry every day, and the SPPD are among some of the first departments in the country to start using them. Take a closer look here.

Three Tampa area rue21 stores will be closing their doors forever. The locations in Pinellas Park, Sarasota and Ellenton do not have a specific date to close, but you can check with the company’s web site for more information.
