The acreage is conservation land that is the second purchase of a three-phase acquisition process. When complete, the county will have nearly 320 acres for the super park. Because the 155 acres will remain natural and be used for passive recreation, the $4.6 million purchase price will come from the Penny for Pasco funds set aside for the countys Environmental Land Acquisition and Management Program (ELAMP). However, the sale will be treated as a loan, with repayment in the form of park impact fees. Those fees will be collected from new residential and commercial development at The Villages master-planned community. Also, new development within the Connected City corridor, including the master-planned community of Epperson, will contribute their share of park impact fees for the super park. A road is expected to link Connected City to the super park in The Villages. The county is still in the acquisition phase, said Keith Wiley, the countys parks, recreation and natural resources director. Capital funds to design and build the park arent available as yet. The final land purchase of about 95 acres also must be negotiated, and approved by the Pasco County commissioners. Its a step in the right direction, Wiley Pasco super park land near Dade CityMore retail, and a Hyatt hotel, are coming to Cypress Creek Town Center, even as other new shops and restaurants are opening for business. Along Sierra Center Boulevard, Mellow Mushroom, Great Clips, Mattress One, Mens Wearhouse and Aspen Dental are open for business. Noire Nail Bar will soon open its doors, too. To the east, Chuys Tex Mex is headed to a spring opening, according to a news release from the national chain. Next door, Bahama Breeze Island Grille is under construction. A 132-room Hyatt Place hotel and convention center will open in July at the Cypress Creek Town Center, said Dilip Kanji, president and chief executive officer of Impact Properties Inc. There is a lot of demand for hotels in the Wesley Chapel area, but Kanji said, Theres not a lot of choices. The growth in the area is what attracted Impact Properties to build there. Pasco County is the fastest-growing Construction of the diverging diamond interchange at Interstate 75 and State Road 56 now has an estimated cost of $40 million. Thats $16 million more than the original estimated cost of $24 million. Despite the higher cost, construction is still expected to begin this summer. The retrofitted interchange is expected to take two years to three years to complete, said Bill Jones, who is the director of transportation development for District 7 of the Florida Department of Transportation. The Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization approved the increased cost at its Feb. 22 meeting in New Port Richey. The good news for Pasco County is the additional $16 million is not expected to affect any other road projects within the county. The state transportation department plans to take the money from a reserve fund, said Craig Casper, the countys MPO director. At one time, the project had a 2024 start date, but the state transportation department moved it ahead nearly six years. Were excited about the project getting started, said Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore. The interchange is expected to ease the rush-hour gridlock as vehicles maneuver on and off I-75, at one of the busiest junctures county in the southeastern United States, he said. We typically prefer to get in when there are (more) spaces for growth. Kanji said the selection for prime locations narrows as more development happens. At Cypress Creek Town Center, the hotel is situated at the Interstate 75 and State Road 56 interchange with immediate access also to Florida Hospital Center Ice and Tampa Premium Outlets. Sierra Properties plans to build a 330,000-square-foot shopping center within the town center also was a draw, Kanji added. Cypress Creek Town Center is approved for up to 2 million square feet of retail, hotel, apartments and offices, according to county records. In the past year, new restaurants have opened at the town center along Sierra Center Boulevard, which leads to the Hyatt property. There is Fords Garage, Wendys, Taco Bell, and Pollo Tropical. Other shops anticipated including Pet Smart and Burlington Coat Factory. Kanji provided a list of other anticipated retail in the 330,000-square-foot project when he spoke at a luncheon, sponsored by The Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce (renamed the North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce). Kanji said he had permission to release the stores names, which include Chipotle Mexican Grill, HomeGoods, Earth Fare, Hobby Lobby, Walk-on Bistreaux & Bar, and Blaze Pizza. Kanji said he expected permitting as soon as April.Spokespersons for the stores either didnt respond to emails from The Laker/Lutz News, or wouldnt confirm their plans. Chipotle Mexican Grill is a Denverbased fast-casual restaurant founded in 1993. Menu items include burritos, bowls, tacos and salads, made to order. There are more than 2,200 Chipotles nationwide.

The development will be a Centex-brand community, known as Wesbridge. Pulte recently purchased about 104 acres for the project. Wesbridge will be targeted to first-time homebuyers, with sales prices starting in the low $200,000s. There will be three different home designs on 40-foot, 50-foot and 60-foot wide lots. Several homes will back up to open space, preserved land and water, according to the release. Floor plans will range from 1,500 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet. Homebuyers can choose designs with three to five bedrooms, two to four bathrooms and two to three car garages. Wesbridge also will feature a resort-style swimming pool, splash playground, tot lot and dog park. This is an assemblage of four different pieces of property in a prime location, Sean Strickler said, in a written statement. Strickler is Pultes division president in west Florida. The location has easy access to Interstate 75, Interstate 275 and State Road 54, The Shops at Wiregrass, Tampa Premium Outlets, and the newly opened Wesley Chapel District Park. It will be located across from Wesley Chapel Elementary School, Weightman Middle School and Wesley Chapel High School. Wesbridge is Pultes third community in Wesley Chapel. The first, Country Walk, sold out in February 2017, according to the press release. The second is in Epperson, the community that features the Crystal Lagoon. Pulte is in its second phase of home sales for Epperson. Wesbridge sales are expected to begin in early 2019, with homes move-in ready by summer 2019.

It is getting mixed reviews from community leaders and elected officials in the Tampa Bay region.In the next weeks and months, representatives of Jacob Engineering will gather public comments on the plan. The Tampa Bay Transportation Management Area Leadership Group, which includes Pasco County Commissioners Kathryn Starkey and Jack Mariano, will get a finalized plan by October.The group also will consider a second project for an urban rail system running on about 9 miles of CSX rail lines between downtown Tampa and the University of South Florida. In January, a study by Jacobs Engineering singled out the bus rapid transit system, or rubber tires, as a doable starter project that would lay a foundation for a long-range transit plan for the region. Its not replacing anything in the vision, said Scott Pringle, of Jacob Engineering. Its just to get things started. It also would be something that can be built, if approved, within about five years, Pringle said. The CSX rail project would have a longer timeline of about 10 years, he added. The bus rapid transit system isnt the usual bus service offered by most local transit agencies, Pringle said. They look like a train, he said. They feel like a train. Pringle has made presentations on the study to the leadership group, and, also recently spoke to the Hillsborough County Young Democrats at their meeting in Ybor City. The projects public rollout through spring and summer of 2018 will include online data and surveys, and a speakers bureau. The Florida Department of Transportation funded the study, with Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) as the studys manager. The 41-mile bus route would travel from Wesley Chapel to downtown St. Petersburg, with connections to downtown Tampa, the University of South Florida and the Westshore business district. Routes also would connect to Brandon and Clearwater. Estimated capital costs would be between $380 million and $455 million, with an annual operating cost of about $7 million. Projections are for about 3.3 million trips per year. The estimated cost per trip for the bus option is $8 to $10 per trip; and $11 to $13 for the CSX option. Costs would be shared with federal, state and local governments. A total of 21 bus stations are proposed, with 19 being at ground level and two elevated. Sleek, train-style buses would ride in designated lanes, bypassing other traffic. For a large portion of the route, the lanes would run parallel to Interstate 275, built on widened shoulders of the highway. Placing designated bus lanes in the median would cost more than $2 billion, according to the study. No right-of-way would be needed for lanes on I-275 shoulder. Rightof-way would be needed for bus stations. Starkey said she had seen examples of how transit stations in Miami spurred new development. That can happen here also, she said. We have the ability to start something here that we all can benefit from, said Starkey, speaking at a January leadership meeting. The estimated travel time for a full ride from Wesley Chapel to St. Petersburg would be about 80 minutes to 95 minutes, assuming the bus stops at every station on the route. Two stations would be built in Wesley Chapel, along State Road 54 and State Road 56. They would be geared toward park and ride, said Pringle. At leadership group meetings, Starkey and Mariano have been supportive but have raised questions about the need for additional financial information. They also want future projects to focus on more areas within Pasco, including western Pasco and the CSX rail lines that travel up U.S. 41 into Lutz and Land O Lakes. I support starting in Wesley Chapel, said Starkey, but noted that heavily populated west Pasco needs transit, as well. Long-range options in the transit vision include self-driving vehicles, light rail, and water-based ferries. We are certainly leap-frogging in technology, she said. Im excited to be a part of this. Mariano isnt convinced it would take as long as 10 years for the rail project to materialize. He also wanted information on land values along the rail line. I think also Hernando County, at some point, needs to come in, especially looking at U.S. 41, Mariano said. Pringle said a dialogue with CSX would be needed. He also stressed that the timelines for the projects are approximate because a lot depends on the final plan and available funding. Both of these (projects) are competitive for federal dollars, he said. The study looked at a range of options, but Pringle said it became clear some were very expensive. The prices kept going up and up, Pringle said. We were pricing ourselves out of a project. Federal agencies like to see projects that cost about $10 a trip, he added. That influenced the decision to focus on the bus rapid transit as a first project, Pringle said. Funding is what kills transit 99 percent of the time, he said.

Bus rapid transit could be ride of the future


Local teen moves on to next round on ‘American Idol’By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comZach D’Onofrio has received a Golden Ticket, and his next national appearance on American Idol will be during Hollywood Week. The 17-year-old Wiregrass Ranch High School student impressed judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie with “The Way You Look Tonight,” a Frank Sinatra song. When he appeared before the celebrity judges in New York, the first thing he did was give each of them a pair of socks from his collection. Katy Perry immediately put the socks on her hands. Then, when Zach began singing, Perry came down from her chair and began dancing with him. Meanwhile, Richie and Bryan danced, too. The Wesley Chapel teen said the judges appeared to be surprised when he started to sing. “Can I hear you speak again?” Bryan asked. “Is this really your speaking voice, you swear?” Zach responded: “I swear, this is my natural voice.” Then Richie added: “You are unique.” Then they asked him to sing for them again. Richie then gave Zach a Golden Ticket, signaling that he’d made it to the next round. Despite performing before celebrity judges, Zach wasn’t rattled. “I wasn’t really too nervous,” he said, in an interview. “I tried to stay confident and believe I could do well in front of them,” he said, adding that it helped to have his mom in New York with him. Zach’s American Idol experience began when he auditioned at Tampa Bay Idol at Florida Hospital Center Ice, an event hosted by ABC Action News and Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend. There, he received a Front of the Line Pass for the next audition in Orlando. His mom, Darci, and his dad, Bryan, took the day off from work to go to Orlando, and his sister, Taylor, took the day off from classes at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, to be there, too. “We got there at 7 a.m., or so,” Bryan said. “There were roughly 5,000 people auditioning that day. The majority of them had to wait in this huge line. But, we only had to wait probably about an hour, and Zach got to sing in front of some of the judges.” Still, Bryan said, “it was a LONG day. “That was in August. It was all outside at Disney Springs,” Bryan said. “In the sun,” Darci added. “It was brutal,” Bryan said. Zach finished his first audition, and then was held back for a second one later in the day before he found out he had made the cut to sing before the celebrity judges. At that point, he had a choice to sing in various cities, Darci said. Zach announced: “We’ve got to go to New York, Mom. I’m a Frank Sinatra guy. I’m a crooner.” Darci and Bryan had to decide which of them would accompany Zach because they had a show scheduled at their Dreamhouse Theatre, which they operate in Lutz. “I pulled the Mom card — ‘Hey, I birthed him,’” Darci said. Plus, she added, “I’ve never been to New York.’” Zach hadn’t been there, either, so the two of them made the most of it. They arrived on a Sunday and stayed for three days, in a hotel within walking distance of Times Square. They visited The Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 Memorial. The day they went to the 9/11 Memorial was the morning after the shootings in Las Vegas, Darci said. “It was very, very touching to be there that day,” she said. Zach’s audition day was on a Tuesday. The day began at 6 a.m., with Zach auditioning around 1 p.m. “By the time we were done with filming, we weren’t out of there until 10 o’clock that night. It was pretty intense,” Darci said. Bryan and Darci knew that Zach could sing, but didn’t realize how well he could sing until Zach came across a Frank Sinatra album, while shopping for vinyl with Bryan. “When he heard Frank Sinatra, he was like: ‘I think I kind of sing like him’,” Bryan said. Zach, who has performed in various Dreamhouse Theatre productions, said initially he ran the lights and the sound for shows. “I would always see the actors on the stage perform, and I always wanted to go on the stage and perform myself, but I was always too nervous to do it because I wasn’t sure what other people would say about my voice,” he said. After singing Sinatra-style for his parents, he decided to sing for cast members of “Little Shop of Horrors” at the theater. “They really liked my voice, and they thought I should keep pursuing this and keep putting myself out there,” Zach said. Although he’s interested in becoming a doctor, Zach is now considering the possibility of a singing career. Like most things in life, time will tell. Zach D’Onofrio said he didn’t feel too rattled while singing for celebrity judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Luke Bryan. His performance earned him a Golden Ticket, taking him to the next round of the competition in Hollywood.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, also known as Senate Bill 7026: Raises the minimum age for purchasing firearms from 18 to 21, with some exceptions detailed in the law Requires a three-day waiting period for firearm purchases, with some exceptions Bans the sale or possession of bump stocks, which allow a semiautomatic weapon to fire more like an automatic weapon Gives law enforcement more authority to seize weapons and ammunition from those deemed mentally unfit, or who otherwise pose a threat Creates the new Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program, named in memory of the assistant football coach at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who died protecting students from gunfire. Includes $400 million to keep students safe and to enhance mental health treatment The new gun regulations have drawn criticism for going too far and for not going far enough. The National Rifle Association announced on its Twitter account that it had filed a lawsuit challenging Floridas newly-enacted ban on the purchase of firearms by adults between the ages of 18-21. It characterized Floridas action as an affront to the Second Amendment, and said it totally eviscerates the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding adults to keep and bear arms. Pasco County Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning said hes glad the Legislature has begun to address school safety by funding some of the measures. However, Browning added: Although they are saying that we need to have a SRO (School Resource Officer) in every school, they did not give us the funding to accomplish that. So, once again, the school district is in a position to have a legislative mandate to do something, and yet were scrambling to find the dollars for it, Browning said. The district has SROs at its high schools and middle schools, but not at its elementary schools. Our hope was that they were going to take any Safe Schools dollars out of the rainy-day fund, he said. They did not do that. Browning said he and superintendents across the state are grappling with the states decision to establish the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program, which creates a new $67 million program for county sheriffs to train school personnel to neutralize an active school shooter. Most districts that hes talked to have chosen not to pursue the program, which will put more guns on school campuses. Browning said he would have preferred using those funds to help fund SROs, or for building modifications on campuses to improve school safety. While critics attack the Florida Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott, national protests continue as well. Students across the country are expected to take part in the National School Walkout on March 14. The event is supposed to last for 17 minutes a minute for each life lost in the Parkland school shooting. Im pretty confident, based on some conversations weve had with principals, that we will have some students who will do that, Browning said Browning said principals will make this as educational as we possibly can, making the connection between public protest, civil disobedience and how that fits into our system of government. The National Walkout is planned for 10 a.m., but Browning said that principals have been working with students to minimize disruptions, and some of the walkouts may occur before or after school, or during lunch.New school safety measures greeted by controversy 24416 State Road 54, Lutz 33559 813-428-6994 EXAMS VACCINES WELLNESS PLANS DENTAL CLEANING SURGERY PET BOARDING HOUSE CALLS TENDER LOVING CARE (TLC) VACCINE HOURS: WEDNESDAY 2-4 Dr. Moses Kawalya, DVM, DABVP(Board Certified by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners)

ManionThe Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for its third Land O Lakes Music Festival. The event will be held March 24 from noon to 8 p.m., at Land O Lakes Heritage Park, formerly known as the Land O Lakes Community Center, at 5401 Land O Lakes Blvd. This year, musicians will be able to use Heritage Stage a community stage that was completed last year, following years of advocacy, and as a result of a multitude of partnerships between governments, business partners and community volunteers. Bands that are scheduled to perform during the festival are: Solar Exposure with an eclectic mix of pop, rock and hint of country Marlon Boone, Jazz/R&B saxophonist extraordinaire Actual Bank Robbers unique indie pop rock Trigger City Trio will entertain with rock & soul sprinkled with funk Stonegrey jamming with arena/classic rock style Sowflo, is coming from Naples, with a reggae vibe Fred Chandler, a vocalist who also plays multiple instruments, will entertain between acts. Its an entire day of music, said Terri Dusek, event chairwoman. She hopes that the music festival, now being held for the third time, will evolve into a major event in Central Pasco. The idea is to provide a setting where music is the focal point, said Dusek, who has been involved with music her entire life. Music has been a huge part of my life, Dusek said, noting that her sons are members of Stonegrey. She also noted that Stonegrey, Solar Exposure and Fred Chandler are all Land O Lakes residents. Dusek also noted that Ryan Walker, owner of Artist Direct, will be handling the sound for the festival. While music takes center stage, there also will be arts and crafts vendors, a kids zone, and a business showcase featuring companies and organizations that want to spread the word about what they have to offer. There will be food trucks, as well as beer and wine. Admission is free, but parking is $10 per vehicle, which benefits local schools. No coolers or pets are allowed.

C TRICAL Ne w T ate r W AC A AC A a n AC A e n ce Plan Pu rifi cat i o n st Financing *W AC A What began as a religious feast day, to honor the day of Saint Patricks death, has evolved into a variety of festivals throughout the world celebrating the Irish culture with parades, foods, music, dancing and all things green. Saint Patricks Day, celebrated on March 17 every year, is reportedly celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. And, when it comes to celebrating St. Patricks Day, there are several possibilities in the way of food. Last year, this column offered the recipe for traditional Irish Soda Bread. This year, I considered either Irish Stew or Corned Beef and Cabbage. The latter won the toss. Although we always think of this holiday and this onepot meal as an Irish tradition, Corned Beef and Cabbage is really an American tradition. Corned beef has been around for centuries in most of Europe and the Middle East, where it has been a staple in the diet. Its name comes from the corns, which are large grains of salt used to cure the meat. British landowners brought their beef into Ireland, and by the 17th century. Unfortunately, due to the high poverty rate, Irish people could not afford to eat it themselves and became known for exporting this product. Instead, they survived on corned pork and potatoes. When large numbers of Irish immigrants came to the United States, in the 18th century, they brought the recipe with them. Since beef brisket was cheap, and cabbage was also readily available, they combined the two in what became the staple for the working class here in the U.S. And, as St. Patricks Day evolved into a celebration of Irish heritage and nationality for Irish-Americans, corned beef and cabbage became a holiday tradition for consumers across the nation. Whether you are one of the 34.5 million Americans who claim Irish ancestry or not, as you celebrate the holiday, you can honor two traditions from those early Irish immigrants: corned beef and cabbage.

After nearly a year of finalizing its conceptual design, construction is slated to begin next month on the new Carrollwood Village Community Park, at 13055 Delwood Road in Tampa. The park replaces the site of the Dale Mabry Wastewater Treatment Plant, which is situated on 50 acres along the west side of North Dale Mabry Highway, just south of West Village Drive. Hillsborough County Public Utilities is presently decommissioning and relocating the existing treatment plant infrastructure, which has been in operation for more than 40 years. Everything associated with the treatment plant will be demolished with the exception of two reclaimed water tanks, pump stations, an administration building structure and fencing. Details about the forthcoming park were unveiled during a March 6 pre-construction open house at the Carrollwood Cultural Center. County parks and recreation officials were on hand to answer questions and gather input from residents. Described as a passive community park, the main amenities will include a dog park, multi-use walking trail, splash pad, playground, indoor community space, and picnic shelters. Other features include a pond, an open lawn, restrooms and parking. Each of those aspects were finalized and based on input gathered from Carrollwood residents in a series of community meetings dating back to 2015. Officials say most of the park will be complete by October, with final touches targeted for December. A ribbon cutting is planned sometime this fall. Speaking at the open house, Hillsborough County parks and recreation director Rick Valdez called the park a very important project for Carrollwood. Weve been meeting on this for months, and I think we have a really good sense of what the community wants to see, Valdez said. Park hours will normally be from sunrise to sunset, with staff on-site to facilitate programming and provide maintenance. Based on renderings, the parks main entrance will be off West Village Drive with a secondary entrance to the south, off Delwood Road. The two entrances will not connect, to avoid the potential for becoming a pass-through route. There will also be new pedestrian crossings on West Village Drive and pedestrian park access in the northeast corner of the park. Offsite work includes re-striping West Village Drive, which includes a left-hand turn lane, deceleration lane and addition of the multi-use trail. The Hillsborough County Commission approved the $6.5 million project last May. If more funding becomes available, the county would look to construct an additional playground, an event center, a boardwalk and fishing dock, and a nature center. The items would be part of Phase II and perhaps a Phase III. Those are things we want to address; we just dont have the money to do it right now, said Kyla Booher, planning and development manager for the countys parks and recreation department. More could be on the way if at least one county commissioner gets his way, however. Eric Denney, a legislative aide to Commissioner Ken Hagan, was at the meeting and said the commissioner is going to work his tail off to get money in the budget for Phase II of the park. Hagan is a northwest area resident and longtime supporter of the park project. When everything is said and done, this should be a true community asset something that will improve the standard of living here in Carrollwood, Denney said. The original idea for a new park in Carrollwood became a community-driven, grassroots effort after word spread four years ago about the retirement of the wastewater site. Public comments on the Carrollwood Village Community Park will be accepted through March 20. To provide feedback on the project, visit mment.

The design will include retaining walls, traffic railings, a shoulder barrier wall, and a permanent sheet-pile wall, according to the state transportation departments request for the cost upgrade. The bridge that crosses I-75 will be redesigned with additional lanes on the ramps. Road signs and lane markers will help guide motorists through the diverging diamond interchange, with speed limits dropping to 35 mph on the approach to the interchange. said. The inclusion of Connected City as a contributor of impact fees for the park should help in getting the needed funds, he added. Pasco County commissioners approved the newest purchase in December. The sale closed in January. When the park is built, it will essentially result in two parks that are the size of district parks, next to each other. One will be kept in its natural state for passive recreation, such as walking trails and kayaking. It will provide access to Buddy Lake. The other will be an active park with ball fields, playgrounds, trails and other amenities. There also are plans to co-locate the active park area with a planned elementary school. Co-location is a trend, as the county seeks to make the most efficient use of funds. The recently opened Starkey Ranch District Park, at Starkey Ranch, is an example of co-location. It was built in partnership with Pasco County Schools, which plans to build an elementary and middle school at the site. which includes TJ Maxx.

16A Florida high school basketball has wrapped up, and while no teams from The Laker/Lutz News coverage area won a state title, several boys and girls squads nonetheless achieved impressive performances during the 20172018 season. Heres a look back at some of the teams and players who stood out: BOYS CARROLLWOOD DAY SCHOOL PATRIOTS (CLASS 4A) RECORD: 24-4 OVERALL, 8-1, DISTRICT 4-4AFour more points thats how much Carrollwood Day School needed to clinch a win to reach the Class 4A Final Four. The Patriots lost to Oviedo Masters Academy 71-68 in the region finals on Feb. 27. Yet nothing should be taken away from first-year coach Teddy Owens, a former assistant at the University of Nebraska. Owens tripled the Patriots win total from the prior year the team went 8-12 during the 2016-2017 season and steered the program to its first winning season since 2012. A bevy of talent helped, too. The Patriots had one of the Tampa Bay areas most electrifying players in 6-foot-1 junior guard Malcolm Whitlow, who averaged a whopping 32 points, seven assists and nine rebounds per game, and set a school-record 47 points during a game against Durant High in January. The program also received major contributions from 6foot-3 guard Edgar Ziegler (17.5 points, 4.6 rebounds) and 6-foot-8 senior center Owen Mixon (10.9 points, 10.5 rebounds).KEYSTONE PREP KNIGHTS (CLASS 2A) RECORD: 20-10 OVERALL, 10-3, DISTRICT 4-2AIt was a year of firsts for Keystone Prep. The Odessa-based school celebrated its first 20-win season, first district tournament win, first district championship, first playoff win and first region final appearance and was just one win away from the Class 2A state semifinals. It was an utter turnaround from last season, when the Knights won just four games. Keystone Prep was particularly dominant throughout district play, outscoring opponents by an average margin of 36 points. The team was led by a trio of seniors in Myikel Wilson (19.6 points, 5.7 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 5.7 steals), Ryan Sanders (14.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.1 steals) and Jairen Embry (10.4 points, 3.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 3.3 steals). Despite losing a strong senior class, the Knights may to be in good shape next season should they return juniors James Pursley (14 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.3 blocks), Jalon Pittman (11.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, 1.7 blocks) and Mario Lovett (8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds). It also helps that the program has a young, up-and-coming coach in Matt Grossenbach. An alumnus of Academy at the Lakes, Grossenbach was that schools first player male or female to score more than 1,000 career points (1,189). He later served as an assistant coach at the Academy before taking the Keystone Prep gig.WHARTON HIGH WILDCATS (CLASS 8A) RECORD: 23-6 OVERALL, 11-3, DISTRICT 8-8AUnder longtime head coach Tommy Tonelli, Wharton High once again showed itself as one of Tampa Bays most consistent hoops programs, by surpassing the 20-win mark for the ninth straight season. They did so in exciting fashion, too. In addition to a nail-biting 51-50 victory over Bartow High in the Class 8A region quarterfinal, Wharton finally downed crosstown rival Plant High to capture its first district crown since 2014. The Wildcats lost to Plant twice earlier in the season before getting revenge a third time around. The Wildcats next season will be without three players who are 6-foot-4 or taller in team captains Ryan Anders and DJ Henderson, and Nate Barnes. However, the team will return top player and Division I prospect Darin Green Jr., a 6foot-4 junior shooting guard, who claims scholarship offers from a handful of mid-majors, including Cal State-Fullerton, Florida Gulf Coast and Rider universities. OTHER NOTABLE BOYS TEAMS: Land O Lakes High Gators (18-8 overall, 4-2 district 8-7A) Wiregrass Ranch High Bulls (17-9 overall, district 8-8A) Wesley Chapel High Wildcats (16-11 overall, 10-6 district 8-6A) Zephyrhills High Bulldogs (20-9 overall, 14-4 district 8-6A)OTHER NOTABLE BOYS PLAYERS: Elijah Howell, junior, Wiregrass Ranch: 12.4 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.7 SPG Mekhi Perry, sophomore, Land O Lakes: 17 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 4.3 APG, 1.3 SPG Isaiah Ramsey, sophomore, Wesley Chapel: 18.7 PPG, 4.9 RPG Angelo Sardegna, junior, Steinbrenner: 12.6 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 1.7 APG, 1.3 SPG Roney Webster, senior, Pasco: 18.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG Jamaal Wright, junior, Sunlake: 15.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 1.4 SPG, 1.3 BPG GIRLS CARROLLWOOD DAY SCHOOL PATRIOTS (CLASS 4A) RECORD: 28-4 OVERALL, 8-1 DISTRICT 4-4AAfter a resounding 32-point victory over Gainesville P.K. Yonge in the Class 4A state semifinals, it appeared as though Carrollwood Day School was well on its way to a state championship. Alas, the Patriots run fell just short after losing to Miami Country Day with that team claiming its fifth straight state title. Even so, the Patriots are no flash in the pan. Its entire roster is comprised of six sophomores, two eighth-graders, a junior and a freshman. Four of those players each a sophomore averaged double figures in scoring: Tarriyonna Gary (15 points), Tiasia McMillan (14 points), Nabaweeyah McGill (12.6 points) and Cairah Mays (10.1 points). Additionally, the team is coached by Karim Nohra, one of the most successful girls basketball coaches in Tampa. The Patriots also won 28 games last year Nohras first with the program after leaving Academy at the Lakes.SUNLAKE HIGH SEAHAWKS (CLASS 7A) RECORD: 20-8 OVERALL, 6-1 DISTRICT 8-7ABuoyed be a senior-laden group of contributors, Sunlake won 20 games for the first time in school history, captured its third straight district title, and fell just one win shy of reaching the Class 7A Final Four. They also earned a fourgame sweep of district rival Mitchell High. Its ability to force turnovers proved troubling for opposing offenses all season long. The Seahawks allowed just 39 points per game and gave up 50 or more points in just five contests. Like last season when the team won 18 games the Seahawks were carried primarily by the same four players: 6foot-1 forward and double-double machine Andrea Wallace (13.3 points, 10.6 rebounds) and guards Kasia Ramirez, Mary Moran and Elizabeth Moran. All seniors, finding capable replacements will be a must for the team to have a fourth straight winning season in 2019.WIREGRASS RANCH HIGH BULLS (CLASS 8A) RECORD: 20-9, 11-3 DISTRICT 8-8A)Wiregrass Ranch celebrated yet another 20-win season its fifth straight and sixth in the last seven years under head coach John Gant. No small task as the Bulls play in a tough district that also features Plant, Steinbrenner and Freedom high schools. More striking, perhaps, is the Bulls extremely young roster. Outside of senior guard Alexis Bolden (10.8 points), the 2018 team was composed entirely of freshman and sophomores. That means Wiregrass should be exciting to watch for the next several years, thanks in part to the freshman duo of 6-foot-2 forward Zoi Evans (11.6 points, 11.4 rebounds) and 5-foot-7 guard Alexis Couzens (9.9 points, 4 rebounds). OTHER NOTABLE GIRLS TEAMS: Steinbrenner High (15-10 overall, 10-4 district 8-8A)OTHER NOTABLE GIRLS PLAYERS: Kiara Broner, senior, Pasco: 14.6 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 2.6 APG, 2.6 SPG Valeria Burbano, senior, Wesley Chapel: 9.9 PPG, 12.1 RPG, 5.2 SPG Regina Henry, senior, Wharton: 8.1 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 2.0 SPG Isabella Prada, freshman, Bishop McLaughlin: 16 PPG, 3.2 APG, 3 RPG, 4 SPG Ashauna Jones, freshman, Zephyrhills Christian Academy: 10.8 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 2.1 SPG Lexi Kilfoyl, junior, Academy at the Lakes: 11 PPG, 10.4 RPG, 5 BPG Stats compiled using SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SEND SPORTS NEWS TO KWEISS@LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM CHECKTHIS OUT COURTESY OF DARLA SARHADDI Pasco High School senior midfielder Taylor Boyd committed to play soccer at NAIA Division II Warner University in Lake Wales.

INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B RANDY UNDERHILL Cars zoomed down a 34-footlong track at Lake Myrtle Elementary School on Feb. 24, during Cub Scout Pack 323s Pinewood Derby Cup Series. Sixty-five Cub Scouts, from the Land O Lakes pack, tested their racing skills as they pitted cars they had designed against each other. Contestants had to create their models from pinewood, add wheels and weights, and give them a paint job, too. Then, the vehicles were inspected and weighed, just like in a real race. During the event, cars were lined up in three lanes at the top of a steep incline and then were released, letting gravity carry each car to the finish line, where official times were recorded. Greg Mark, chairman of the event, said he enjoyed working on his pinewood with his dad when he was young and wanted to share the experience with his son, Ryder, who is 8. He did the majority of it this year, Mark said. I want him to learn how to build a race car. The project begins with a box of wood, four wheels and four axles. Then, its fashioned into a car, which is painted. Weights are added to get as close as possible to the maximum weight, so it will perform well in the race. I think its an awesome thing for the boys to do with their dads, he said. To make the event enjoyable for families, there were other activities, too, including crafts. Food was also available. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves, Mark said. The pinewood derby has been part of local Cub Scouts since around 1975. The creation of a Pinewood Derby dates back much farther. Dan Murphy, a Cubmaster from Ohio, came up with the idea in 1952. He wanted to do something for kids who were too young for the Soap Box Derby. The Pinewood Derby swept the nation in the mid 1950s and is still part of the Cub Scouts today. Sponsors of the local event were Christian Brothers Automotive, Cameo Salon and Spa, Hungry Harrys Family BarB-Que, Jerry McCarthy State Farm, Russel Marine, Tampa T-shirts, Parker Pest Control, Accurate Signs On Time, 67 Design Co., and Studio 54 Tattoo.

Charming and sweet Its a perennial challenge for families: Finding the best way to keep their child, or children, occupied during the summer months. Thats why Miriam Cook, founder of Family Friendly Tampa Bay, organized an expo that aims to bring parents and providers of summer camps, and other activities, together. My whole goal is to arm people with information, with resources, so that they can make the best decisions for themselves, Cook said. With this summer camp expo, were giving parents that opportunity to go and kind of make those choices to have all of those options, so they can make the best choices for themselves. Its a great way for exhibitors to tell parents about their summer camps, and a great way for parents to get their questions answered, Cook said. This is the second time that Cook has organized the expo, which will be held in two locations this year. It will be held March 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Florida Hospital Center Ice, 3173 Cypress Ridge Blvd., in Wesley Chapel. The other will be on April 7 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., at George M. Steinbrenner Field, 1 Steinbrenner Drive in Tampa, in connection with the Tampa Tarpons home opener. Both summer camp expos offer a onestop shop to local summer camps, summer activities, special needs camps, programs and services. Theres pretty much something for everyone, Cook said. There also will be free weeks of camp, attraction tickets, and products up for grabs for those families who register onsite for their childs Summer Camp at one of the expos, Cook said.The events aim to provide information and options for new families moving into the area, and for families who now have schoolage children and need to find summer activities for them, Cook said. Especially in the Wesley Chapel area, there are so many new families moving in, she said. Theyre asking: What do I do with my kids in the summer? Having this summer camp expo really does help them out, Cook said. Besides gathering useful information, families can take advantage of free activities for their kids at the expo, Cook said. Were going to have laser tag. Were having a mobile game truck onsite. We have a toddler section. Theres face painting. Theres live entertainment, she added. Admission, parking and the activities are free, she said. The only thing they have to pay for is food, Cook said. Attendees also can pick up a printed list of various summer options. For more information about either expo, visit, or call (813) 331-5579.

UPS ACCIDENT-FREE DRIVERSUnited Parcel Service, widely known as UPS, honored 25 company drivers in Florida for 25 or more years of accident-free driving, including employees from Pasco County, according to a UPS new release. Jeffrey Coakley, of Land O Lakes; Ruben Alfaro, of Lutz; Louis Lasseter of New Port Richey; and Stephen Matis, of Hudson were among more than 1,500 UPS drivers worldwide to be inducted into the Circle of Honor. Florida has more than 630 Circle of Honor drivers with a combined total of more than 15,000 years of accident-free driving. UPS employs about 5,300 drivers in Florida. Globally, about 10,500 UPS drivers belong to the Circle of Honor organization. According to the release, UPS employs about 127,000 small package drivers who are among the safest on the roads. They log more than three billion miles a year and deliver nearly five billion packages annually. UPS was founded in 1907, and issued its first driver handbook in 1917. The company began recognizing safe drivers in 1923. The safe-driving honor program began in 1928.JELLY BEANS, JELLY BEANSNational Jelly Bean day arrives on April 22. In honor of the approaching celebration, completed a state-by-state survey identifying the favorite flavors. The results were based on sales data and interactive surveys of more than 12,000 jelly bean eaters. It revealed some surprises, including the dethroning of black licorice as the national favorite. The winner in 2018 is buttered popcorn, followed by black licorice, cinnamon, watermelon and cherry.In Florida, the top jelly bean is watermelon, followed by peach and juicy pear. The peach state of Georgia prefers buttered popcorn. Cotton candy jelly beans melt in the mouths of Montana residents. And, coconut jelly beans appeal to Massachusetts residents. The tiny, egg-shaped sugary convections are often associated with Easter. They get plopped into the green straw of Easter baskets, nestled next to the chocolate bunny. President Ronald Reagan famously loved the candies and passed them around to visitors to the Oval Office. The first known advertisement for jelly beans came from Boston candy maker William Schrafft who asked customers to send them to Union soldiers during the Civil War. But, the candies also can be traced back thousands of years to the Middle East. For information on the survey, visit MYPASCO APPMyPasco mobile application can now provide wait times for construction permits, according to a news release from Pasco County. Central Permitting Wait Times is a new addition to the MyPasco app menu. It allows customers of Building Construction Services to see a live view of permitting and zone wait times, as well as peak hours, before heading to the New Port Richey office. This new mobile application is in addition to another MyPasco feature to Report Illegal Dumping. The app allows Pasco citizens to aid in identifying illegal dumping sites, and pursuing people who are illegally dumping trash and other debris.WOMENS FORUMA forum on womens issues, We Can Do It: Women Making Strides, is scheduled for March 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Pasco-Hernando State College Porter Campus, 2727 Mansfield Blvd., in Wesley Chapel.
