Chilling Out At Wall Springs Park

  • 2:12 pm Monday, September 19th, 2016 by Ann Kelly

Water so clear you can see the multitude of fish, but there’s no fishing allowed. Water at a constant temperature from the freshwater spring and wildlife everywhere. And it’s all just right off Alternate 19 in Palm Harbor. On my time off this time around it’s all about good food like Magical Dining, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and as many parksand beaches as I can find. This time it’s Wall Springs Park, named for the Wall family who owned it going back to 1883. It’s a gentle piece of paradise that was once a “health spa” when Charles [More]

In the days following a natural disaster like Hurricane Hermine, we all wanted to get back to normal as quickly as possible. For our friends in Pasco County that’s going to take some time thanks to the flooding, evacuations, damage to homes, and the frustration felt by people who have been through this before. We can’t thank those enough who stepped forward to help their neighbors and the first responders who may have left their own families behind to assist others.

For me, after being a part of making sure you knew what was going on every day, and being away [More]

A “Powerful” Message On Storm Safety

Earlier this year, I had the chance to meet some of the men and women that we come to depend on when the power goes out from , a nationwide day to honor those who quietly do their jobs so that we all have the power we need to keep the food fresh, the kids cool, and the lights on.  Give the men and women a true thank you that day by using #NationalLinemanDay and #thankalineman on Social Media. I’ll be wearing my honorary Duke Energy hard hat! My thanks for setting up our latest Ann-Venture to Peveeta Persaud, former [More]
