Post office hours expanded
TARPON SPRINGS -- The Tarpon Springs post office is opening a half-hour early from now until Dec. 23 to accommodate patrons sending packages and buying stamps during the holidays. The office at 850 E Lime St. will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturdays, Postmaster Michael Porta said. Additional lockers also have been added in the lobby so people with post office boxes can pick up packages more easily, he said.
Roof damaged by chimney fire
TARPON SPRINGS -- A fire spread from the fireplace to the chimney and caused more than $5,000 in damage to a Tarpon Springs home Tuesday night, fire officials said. Resident Mary Liu was inside the house at 522 Live Oak St., but she did not see that the fire had spread until a neighbor alerted her about 8 p.m., said Capt. Don Sayre of the Tarpon Springs Fire Department. No one was hurt, but the fire damaged the roof of the home.
