Icon Shout-Out

From elected officials to local media, there was an understandable outpouring of respect and love over the passing of Jan Platt. Her service, ethics and inspiration were well noted across a spectrum of the citizenry. Among the eclectic chorus: the Press Box Lounge on South Dale Mabry. A digital sign out front said: “RIP Jan Platt, a Tampa Icon.” Nearby was “Go Bolts” signage.

That speaks volumes when it’s not just high-profile public officials who are giving shout-outs for one of their own. Jan Platt touched a lot of lives, and the Press Box underscored that reality. Indeed, RIP.
