Sergeant First Class Kyle Margelofsky was among the group assisting the Wounded Warriors.

“This is my first time taking part and it’s an honor to do so,” Margelofsky. “Many of the warriors were used to jumping out of planes prior to being wounded so this provides them with the chance to get back inside a plane.”

Saturday’s tandem jumps began just after 9 a.m. and lasted well into the afternoon.

Margelofsky is stationed with SOCOM at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

    Melanie and Jeffrey Cornwell should have been getting a tax break for years on part of the homestead property in Dunedin they call their "little piece of Heaven." But due to a mistake at the Pinellas Property Appraiser's Office, they won't see any rebates for previous taxes, just a break on future tax bills.
