Governor Rick Scott will in Tampa today for a press conference at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office. He’ll talk about the proposed $500 million for an increase in school safety and mental health programs.

 

The US Women’s Hockey team will be at the Lightning game tonight as part of their cross-country tour after winning the gold medal. A pre-game ceremony is scheduled and you’ll be able to get autographs around Amalie Arena during the first period intermission.

 

Residents on St Pete Beach aren’t thrilled about people bringing their dogs to the North Shore beach. Dogs are not allowed on the beach and police can’t do anything unless they see owner and dog. So they’re taking pictures of them and sharing them on social media to pressure police to do something.

 

It’s getting close to spring break at the beach and Clearwater Beach has already gotten a jump-start on traffic control with a ten week park and ride that’s free. It started this past Monday with shuttle rides to and from parking lots to the beach. Look for signs around town that will direct you to those lots. And if you’d rather take the ferry – which is not free –  the city plans to double the amount of boats.
