There will be plenty of familiar faces on the ice when the NHL All Star Game comes to Amalie Arena January 28th. Four players from the Tampa Bay Lightning are on the team, along with coach John Cooper for the Atlantic Division. Lightning Captain Steve Stamkos will make his 5th appearance along with Nikita Kucherov and Victor Hedman making their second, and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy in his first appearance.


The driverless shuttle that HART had hoped to have in place in time for the All Star Game is on hold for now. That’s thanks to a dispute between Hillsborough County and the contractor. The contract has been cancelled and the county hopes to find another contractor to finish the project by the end of the year.


Florida Fish and Wildlife may shorten scallop season for some counties, but extend it in others. The shorter season would affect Citrus and Hernando counties. The FWC hopes to ensure more scallops for everyone. You can check your scalloping date from the FWC.
