Thanksgiving Shortages; Bucs Bounce Back

Publix has put limits on select items for Thanksgiving shoppers. The grocery chain announced Monday limits on certain items that include canned cranberry sauce, jarred gravy and canned pie filling among others. You will be limited to two items per shopper and Publix has signs on the shelved that identify which items are in short supply, and there’s no word on how long the limits will be enforced.

One necessity that may actually go down in price is gas. The Bay area has experienced a 60% increase in fuel prices, but those are expected to start dropping over the next few weeks. Experts say during the pandemic prices went down since we weren’t traveling much, but that’s changed and caused a temporary shortage.

Area food banks are also hurting for the holidays. Metropolitan Ministries holiday tent is open and asking for donations of stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy. You can drop off donations at the tent at 2609 N Rome Avenue in Tampa, and for specific hours please click here.

The Bucs bounced back on Monday Night Football and took the New York Giants down with a 30-10 victory at Raymond James Stadium. During the game, Mike Evans broke Mike Alstott’s record for total touchdowns with his 72nd. Mike’s former record 71 touchdowns lasted almost 20 years. Next up for the Bucs will be Indianapolis Sunday at 1 pm.

The busiest travel time of the year is underway and at Tampa International Airport it’s the usual good advice about arriving early (at least two hours) and if you’re using the Blue Airside, you’re in luck. If you have just a carry-on and have your boarding pass, you can sail right through and head directly for your airside. For now the new Blue Express Curbside is the only side open for this service, which serves American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Copa Airlines, Cayman Airways and Swift Air. The Red Curbside Express is scheduled to open in 2025. Tampa is the first airport in the nation to offer this service.

After four years as the head coach at the University of Florida, Dan Mullen has been fired. The team had just lost for the sixth time in the last nine games when the announcement was made. Greg Knox, Athletic Director will take over in the interim.

2021 isn’t over yet, but so far it’s been the deadliest year on record for manatee deaths since Florida Fish and Wildlife started tracking deaths in the 1970′s. Over 1,000 manatees have died this year with algae bloom to blame in part, killing off the seagrass they feed on, along with increased pollutions and boating accidents. Many experts and groups are asking the status of manatees to go back endangered status, not just threatened as they are now.
