Nate Dogg's Pizzeria opened in November in the Winn Dixie Plaza near the intersection of Walsingham Road and Seminole Boulevard in Largo.
Growing up in Nebraska, Nate Kleeb, 27, always wanted a pizzeria. "Even as a kid every time we went to a pizza place, I would think this would be really cool if I had one of these," Kleeb said.

The pizzeria is in the former location of Big Mike's Pizza Oven in the Winn Dixie Plaza near the intersection of Walsingham Road and Seminole Boulevard.

The proposed new recreation center is on track for completion in May, according to the city.
With the walls around the pool gone, it's now easy to see the construction progress on the proposed new Highland Recreation Complex. The recreation center should be complete in May of 2013, according to Facilities Manager Glenn Harwood. Harwood said the construction process is going very well. Within the next couple of weeks the building will have all of its walls and windows, so if it rains, the inside of the building will not get wet. Work continues on various systems such as electrical, plumbing, air-conditioning and duct-work, Harwood said. Next steps on the new complex include site work, such as roads and parking, Harwood said. The new 40,000-square-foot building will have an indoor walking track, double gymnasium, indoor play zone, …
