Clinton Global Initiative

Former President Bill Clinton has announced a partnership to turn part of downtown Tampa into a more walkable, healthy place to live and work.

As the University of South Florida prepares to present its request for $57 million in state funding for its new medical school / heart clinic in downtown Tampa, school officials are also seeking around $25 million in private donations to reach the overall goal of $157 million dollars for the project. But as the Tampa Bay Times' Jamal Thalji reports, the school may be hampered by its previous success finding big money donors.

Strategic Property Partners LLC

Tampa Bay Lighting owner Jeff Vinik admitted that he formed his group "Strategic Property Partners" so he could slowly and quietly buy up property surrounding the Amelie Arena in downtown Tampa.

That silence was shattered Wednesday when he finally unveiled his "vision plan" for the Channelside District.
