BROOKSVILLE – A total of 14 seasons have gone by since Bob Levija last guided the Springstead wrestling team through a regular-season tournament.
On Friday and Saturday at Hernando High, the Hall of Fame mentor was once again at the helm of the vaunted program he built and cultivated for 23 seasons, and the Eagles nearly hoisted a championship trophy in the process.
Springstead ended the 35th annual Kiwanis Invitational with 138 team points, an agonizing 1.5 behind first-place Tampa-Robinson at 139.5.

Steam 33 — Café Bistro

Anew Mediterranean cafe Steam 33 has opened across from the courthouse in downtown Brooksville. It is located in the Jennings building which has been home to a number of restaurants in the recent past.

Our waiter gave us a business card of the owner, since it was our first time visiting the restaurant. It said owner Rodrigo Villa-Lobos. We asked where Rodrigo was and he stopped by our table to talk. It is nice to visit small businesses where the proprietor is on premises and can correct any issues.
