Your Local Real Estate & Property Management LAKERLUTZNEWS.COMThe LAKER LAND O’ LAKES EDITION The LAKERFreeMARCH 1, 2017 By Kathy The Pasco County Commission has approved medical marijuana dispensaries, on a limited scale, to open for business in the county. Commissioners approved an ordinance on Feb. 21 that permits two medical marijuana dispensaries. The permits will be issued only for a low-level form of the product, known as Charlotte’s web. The permits also will be issued to two separate applicants, who will be able to open locations within the county’s industrial districts. And, the ordinance stipulates that if the number of qualified patients exceeds 1,200, a third dispensary can be permitted. Qualified patients must be state residents who are added to the “compassionate use registry” by a physician licensed to receive the low-level marijuana from a dispensary. Florida voters, in 2014, approved a referendum to allow Charlotte’s web as a medical marijuana option. It can be provided to patients who suffer from seizures. In some cases, late-stage cancer patients also can qualify. State health officials didn’t approve guidelines for the program until last year. The first recipient was a resident of Hudson. Now, Pasco and other counties are in waiting mode, again.

By midMarch, franchise owner Carlos Saenz plans to host a grand opening. Meanwhile, Saenz has had to watch hopeful customers slowly steer their vehicles into the drive-through lane on a daily basis. It’s disappointing not to at least have a Blizzard or an ice cream cone to hand out, said Saenz.

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comLive music, interesting cars, corn dogs and kids’ activities — those are just a few of the offerings expected at the second annual Land O’ Lakes Music Festival set for March 11.The festival, presented by the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, is being held at a new venue this year. David Gainer, event chairman and president-elect of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce thinks the new location — at the Land O’ Lakes Community Center and Park — will benefit the event because of its high visibility off Land O’ Lakes Boulevard. The festival was moved because organizers believed that a new stage, that’s now under construction, would be completed. “We thought the stage would be ready this year, but you know how construction goes. It was delayed,” Gainer said. “Ultimately, once the new stage there is completed, that is going to be our new home.” So, instead of using the new stage, musicians will perform on the park’s football field, Gainer said. Festival-goers can bring their own lawn chairs and blankets, or can purchase reserved seating, which is $15 in advance, or $20 at the gate. The event kicks off with the Al and Ida Silver Memorial Car Show, which is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the top 30 cars. “We’re expecting to have 40 to 60 cars there, of all kinds, not just classic,” Gainer said. Meanwhile, the music festival will be on the football field, where people will be able to bring lawn chairs and blankets, to listen to the bands. By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comFive candidates, out of a potential list of 11, made the cutoff and will be brought to Pasco County to interview as the replacement for outgoing County Administrator Michele Baker. Baker is scheduled to leave office in July. She notified county commissioners last year that she planned to retire and would not seek to renew her contract. A group tour of Pasco, an invitation-only meet-and-greet, and interviews at a county commission meeting are anticipated in midMarch for the candidate finalists. County commissioners got a preview of 11 candidates at the Feb. 21 meeting in New Port Richey from Mark Morien, vice president of Chicago-based GovHR USA. Commissioners received packets on each candidate, including resumes and comments from references, and candidate interviews. They voted to select five of the 11 candidates to interview. GovHR USA received a total of 54 resumes, from 18 states. Gabriel Papadopoulos, manager of Pasco County’s elderly nutrition program, was the lone internal candidate to apply.

Stormwater fees could increase to fix floodingPasco County residents could be asked to pay higher stormwater fees in 2018. A divided Pasco County Commission approved a tentative increase of $38 a year on top of the current $57 stormwater fee, for a total annual payment of $95. Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore tried to persuade the board to wait until June to take action on the issue. By then, Moore hopes the county will have good news on its request for state funds to help pay for some of the countys priority projects. Moore also wants to see the county explore other options, including special assessment districts. I dont see people lining up for increased fees, Moore said. Despite those arguments, the vote was 4 to 1, with Pasco County Commissioner Mike Wells dissenting. Moore reluctantly voted yes after he was assured that the increase could be rolled back, or scrapped, if state funds arrive. Three commissioners Ron Oakley, Kathryn Starkey and Jack Mariano argued that the county cant keep putting off repairs and maintenance of infrastructure that should have been funded years ago. County staff members estimate there is a backlog of 93 years of service and maintenance to clean and repair culverts. There also is a list of more than 300 stormwater projects, in total, that are needed to address flooding. The cost for that work is estimated at $300 million. Weve got to step up and make this decision, Oakley said. I believe flooding and stormwater issues are countywide. Its all part of our working together. To delay action would be to do the same thing as previous commissions have done, Starkey said. Pasco County Administrator Michele Baker said there was some urgency in deciding on a stormwater rate increase. The countys department heads will begin piecing together the 2018 budget in March. The Pasco County Property Appraisers office also needs to know if theres a rate increase, in a timely manner for its trim notices to property owners. Baker, who is retiring in July, also had an opinion on the rate increase. I have always been a proponent of funding a fix, she said. The additional revenues are expected to generate about $24 million for engineering and design of 10 priority capital projects, and for cleaning, replacing and maintenance of culverts and swales. Southwest Florida Water Management District, known as Swiftmud, will contribute half of an estimated $38 million construction cost for the capital projects. The fee increase was among several funding options presented to commissioners by county staff at the Feb. 21 meeting. They opted to postpone decisions on two choices. One would be to establish a capital utility fund for stormwater projects and collect $77 annually from property owners. The fee collection would begin in 2019. That would be on top of the $95 fee, for a total of $172 a year. Another would establish the special assessment districts that Moore, and also Wells, favor. When is enough, enough, Wells asked. I dont think its fair for everyone to pay for what is really the west side. Tropical Storm Hermine in 2016 and torrential summer rains in 2015 caused extensive flooding to Pasco County homes. Much of the damage was in New Port Richey, Port Richey and Elfers, though some areas of central and east Pasco also saw flooding. Starkey countered that the countys property tax base suffers whenever properties, wherever their location, are devalued because of flooding damage. Mariano agreed. Although commissioners live in different districts, they are elected countywide, Mariano noted. You are hurting the rest of the county by not fixing those problems, Mariano said.

Queen Elizabeth was born. A.A. Milne published Winniethe-Pooh, and Tampa Theatre opened Tampas first air-conditioned building, in downtown Tampa. Calvin Coolidge was in the White House at the time, and people could buy a dozen of eggs for 56 cents, a dozen oranges for 34 cents, or a porterhouse steak for 29 cents a pound. Its also the year that Dade City Grammar School opened. The structure, built in the Collegiate Gothic style of architecture, was later renamed to honor Superintendent R.B. Cox, a former principal, who lost his battle with cancer in 1973. The school, at 37615 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., in Dade City, is hosting a 90th birthday celebration on March 5. The event features a dinner of baked ziti, salad and dessert, with tickets selling for $7 each. Besides the meal, there will be music by the Pasco County High School jazz band, and a video of interviews of students and teachers, with connections to the elementary school, said Principal Claudia Steinacker. Visitors also will be able to walk down memory lane, perusing historic photographs and reading Did you know? factoids, gathered from people associated with the school through the years. The event will serve as a fundraiser to help pay for some projects at the school, which serves 465 children from Early Head Start through fifth grade. For instance, the school would like to makeover a space between the main building and the media center converting it into a courtyard where students and families can gather, Steinacker said. Other ideas include purchasing picnic tables, to give visiting parents a place to eat lunch, and buddy benches out near the playground. The school also would like to turn a space near the primary classrooms into a play area for the children. Well prioritize what we want to start with, based upon the funds, and then well just continue moving forward as we try to raise those funds, the principal said. Besides the dinner, the school will be raising money through a baked goods auction, and it has sold vendor spaces to vendors who will be selling items at the event. We chose to do it on a Sunday, so we could make it a little bit special, Steinacker said, noting she didnt want people to feel rushed. The idea is to give people a chance to gather, to reminisce and to recognize the schools special role in the community where it has been the focus of education for generations of children, she said. Even if they dont want to come necessarily to eat, even if they just want to come to be able to walk, and see and visit we just really want everyone to have the opportunity to see our amazing school and learn about the history that this school has, Steinacker said. Its a great opportunity to say, Come celebrate. If you have time and you want to support us, you want to volunteer, the door is open. We need that. This is a special place. We want people to be able to celebrate what a special place it is, Steinacker said. Dade Citys motto is Proud Heritage, Promising Future, the principal said. We definitely are striving to give our kids that promising future, she added. This will be the schools second celebration to mark its ninth decade of operation. It had a celebration in the beginning of the school year, and it plans to have another one at the end of the school year, when it plans to bury a time capsule. B C MANION If you goR.B.

Closer Look an advertiser Profile 38201 10th Ave, Zephyrhills, FL 33542(813) Local, fresh and healing foods Special to The Laker / Lutz News Bernard Wong has been a professional chef for more than 25 years. He and his wife Vicky Lin were thriving in the New York City baking industry for many of those years. But when their daughters Alexandria and Isabella were born, they decided to make a change. We enjoyed the city. There are so many culinary influences from all over the world. said Lin. But it wasnt the best place to raise a family. So, two years ago, they packed up their bakeware and purchased a 17-acre farm in the rolling hills of Dade City. They faced challenges adapting their gardening methods to Floridas subtropical climate, but are pleased with the results. We are committed to using only foods grown without pesticides or artificial ingredients, said Lin. Weve spent the past two years cultivating our farm so we can honor that commitment. Adhering to a farm to table philosophy, the couple grows the produce they use to create their fusion-style menu of breads, cakes, and desserts. These include sweet potatoes, pumpkin, taro, mangos, sunflowers, and the leaves of the moringa tree.Known for its antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties, Moringa oleifera has gained popularity as a miracle food. Customers are intrigued by the green-tinted cakes, breads, and even chicken noodle soup made with the tiny leaves. Nature provides so many healing foods, Lin explained. We love to incorporate these into our menu. We are what we eat, so if we eat healthy foods, we are healthy. That philosophy is evident in their menu. Homegrown sunflower leaves are dried, ground and transformed into sunflower tea mousse cake. Lemon raisin twists are made with fresh lemons. Fresh pickled daikon finds a home on barbecue pork buns and chicken sandwiches. The menu changes with the seasons, guaranteeing exciting new delights throughout the year. All natural fruit smoothies are a recent addition, and the couple plans to offer a farm fresh salad bar during the summer months. The Living Food Bakery and Caf is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday. They also offer catering and will create special occasion cakes and gift baskets on request by calling (813) 715-0622. 8A "When our m arketing staff w as looking for a g ood local newspaper to advertise in, I re commended The L aker/Lutz News because I live in Lutz and read the p aper every week.

Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasanos office and partner charitable organizations have helped to raise more than a quarter-million dollars for various causes since Fasano took office. In 2016, the Fasanos office helped collect more than $95,000 in charitable giving donations. To achieve that, the office had fundraising efforts on behalf of several organizations, including: Kiddy-Up Ranch, AFIRE of Pasco, PACE Center for Girls, the Alzheimers Family Organization, ASAP of Pasco, Two Good Soles Shoes and Socks Drive, Moffitt Cancer Center, One Community Nows Hunger Walk, Take Stock in Children, AAA Traffic Safety Foundation, Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, Farm Share, the Volunteer Way, Be a Santa to a Senior, Toys For Tots and the Pasco Sheriffs K-9 Association. The charitable giving program, which primarily helps local nonprofit organizations, was created shortly after Fasano was named tax collector in 2013. Since then, the office has partnered with 36 different charities, raising more than $253,700 to date. The figure does not include the value of donated toys, gifts, shoes, food, etc. I am so proud of the staff at all five of our offices, Fasano said, in a statement. When I often say they are second to none, I truly mean that. The fact that, in addition to the many duties they perform serving our customers on a daily basis, they were able to raise over a quarter million dollars for our nonprofit groups is amazing. Over the years, a very generous public has demonstrated their willingness to help charities that do important work helping people in need. The office will be adding some new charities to its giving program in 2017. They include: Restored Hope of Dade City, NAMI of Pasco, CARES, Nourish to Flourish, Smile Faith Foundation, Blanket Tampa Bay, and the Good Samaritan Clinic. Other organizations Farm Share Holiday Food Giveaway, the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation also will be featured in 2017. Statewide organizations assisted through the program must have a local component through which eligible Pasco County residents may receive services. For more information about the program, contact Greg Giordano, assistant tax collector, at (727) 847-8179, or email For information about services provided by the tax collectors office, visit donations top quarter-million TheLAKER/ LutzNEWSCommunity News Publications 813.909.2800 I've advertised my dental practice in The Laker every week since we opened our practice in 2012.

VISIT US AT WWW.STONECENTERPLUS.COM Donations are still rolling in for one of the Tampa Bay areas most popular flea markets. The annual GFWC LutzLand O Lakes Womans Club flea market is scheduled for March 3 and March 4 at the Historic Old Lutz School, 18819 U.S. 41 in Lutz. Events hours are from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., on both days. Club members have been gathering and sorting thousands of donated goods since Feb. 13. Locals have provided a wide range of items, including household and childrens goods, antiques and collectibles, sports equipment and gardening tools. Higher-end products, such as silver and crystal, also will be sold at the market. Clothing items, as usual, are in high supply. Theyll also be in high demand, said Pat Serio, one of the flea markets organizers. Clothing is so hugely popular, because most items are $1 per piece, with the exception of a few boutique items, she said. People walk out with armfuls, Serio said. Many flea market items, Serio said, are in the $1 to $5 range. Other goods like childrens toys and crafts can be had for a quarter. Shoppers, too, can often find rare treasures like depression-era glasses at relatively good prices. Were our own best donors. We give the bulk of this stuff, and we solicit all of our friends, Serio said. We love donating, and we love shopping. The flea market has been a staple in Lutz for more than 35 years, organizers say. It had modest beginnings, with just a few tables at the Lutz Train Depot. In a short time, however, the event outgrew that location. Now, thousands flock to the Historic Old Lutz School during the two-day run. It is now the clubs second-largest fundraiser, behind the annual Lutz Arts & Crafts Show each December. Sales from the flea market go toward the clubs college scholarship fund. At the end of the event, leftover items will be donated to local organizations, including Goodwill and Salvation Army, local nursing homes, veterans charities and local libraries. Put simply: Nothing goes to waste, Serio said. Besides the womans club, groups such as Boy Scout Troop 12 and the University of South Floridas Sigma Lambda Gamma sorority chapter pitch in to help with the event. About 80 other volunteers also help, including club members husbands and children. Last year, the flea market was the organizations primary fundraiser after the arts show was cancelled due to a burgeoning sinkhole in Lake Park. That led to a budget shortfall which the organization is still recovering from, Serio said. Even so, the burden for a banner showing is lesser compared to 2016. There isnt so much stress about how much money were going to make to fill the coffers, Serio said. But, theres always stress involved in coordinating, and theres a lot of chaos involved... Still, members find a way to have a fun experience once the flea market commences. We all enjoy it, Serio said. We like to think of ourselves as the Chiselers North. Karin DAmico, the clubs president, acknowledged the event takes a lot of work. However, the immense community support makes it worthwhile, she said. We have carload after carload of people ...dropping off stuff, DAmico said. Thats what I think is (special) the community coming out for us, and you can really feel the support... Anyone who wishes to donate items for the flea market still has time. Donations will be accepted until March 1. All donations should be in clean and in working order. Large appliances and sleeper sofas cannot be accepted. To find out more about making a donation, call (813) 948-4752.

Dispensary permits for this expanded program are on hold until Florida legislators and state health officials craft new regulations and guidelines. Pascos ordinance on Charlottes web had the support of Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco However, Chase Daniels, assistant executive director of the sheriffs office, said, We continue to (watch) what the legislature is going to do with Amendment 2. To prepare for medical marijuana within the county, Pasco county commissioners, in December, approved the framework for where and how dispensaries can operate.Besides being restricted to industrial districts, the county also request a one-mile separation between the medicinal shops. Dispensaries also must be at least 1,000 feet from such facilities as schools, day care centers and drug treatment centers. Buffering and adequate setbacks are required between a dispensary and any residential property.Applicants must show they are licensed by the state to operate a dispensary and must meet the countys zoning conditions for permitting.DQ Grill & Chill is located at 17826 Aprile Drive, off Ballantrae Boulevard and State Road 54. More than 50,000 vehicles travel up and down the state road. Ballantrae Village Shoppes sits at the entrance to the masterplanned community of Ballantrae, north of U.S. 41. Further north, Bexley Ranch and Asturia are among new subdivisions populating the state highway. To the south, Long Lake Ranch homes are for sale. More retail and commercial are popping up where cows once grazed. At Ballantrae Village, Circle K is nearly built. In addition to Dairy Queen, the approximately 17,000-square-foot shopping plaza will have T-Mobile, Taco Bell and Dunkin Donuts. Other parcels are available. The activity up and down State Road 54 is a prime reason that Saenz, and his wife Pam, took a deep dive into a new venture as fast-food restaurant owners. We think were in a great spot, said Saenz. Three years ago, this area was probably a five or six (on a scale of 10). I think were at a nine or 10, with the amount of homes and traffic. The Saenzs live in the Oakstead subdivision with their 14-year-old daughter, Madison. Pam Saenz is a Pasco County teacher. Carlos Saenz is stepping away from a long career in the insurance industry to open his first Dairy Queen. A second franchise in Hudson is possible. When Saenz researched restaurant franchises, he zeroed in on Dairy Queen for a personal reason. He grew up in Puerto Rico, but as a middle school student moved to Kissimmee, Florida. His first fast-food meal was at a Dairy Queen on U.S. 192. Its still there, Saenz said. He feels many others also feel nostalgic about a restaurant that began in 1940. Back then, it sold burgers, hot dogs, fries, Peanut Buster parfaits, Dilly bars and ice cream cones. Dairy Queen celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2015. The company boasts of more than 1,560 DQ Grill & Chill restaurants in 46 states. Saenz said Dairy Queen, in recent years, has kept its traditional menu items, but also modernized to keep up with the times. The DQ Grill & Chill concept started nearly two decades ago. The old favorites are still there, but chicken strip baskets and sandwiches and honey-flavored barbecue have been added. DQ rotates some items in and out, including a recent Kansas-style pork sandwich on pretzel bread and a Philly cheesesteak. Customers are now described as fans. Dairy Queen supports communitybased charitable events. Saenz said the company supports a national campaign to collect donations for the Miracle Childrens Network. However, money collected locally stays in the community, he said. He anticipates sponsoring special spirit night events for area schools, with a portion of proceeds benefiting each school. A grassy area near the outdoor patio could be gated off as a kind of dog park. Saenz said he expects foot traffic from nearby Ballantrae homes, and people will want to bring their pets. Were going to be partners with the community and engaging with schools, Saenz said. the recommended candidates, Morien said he wanted to identify him so you are aware of who your future leaders are. Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano unexpectedly tossed in Kevin Guthries name. After a short pause, Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said, Its a little late. Pasco hired Guthrie in 2016 as emergency management director and, soon after, revamped his role to director of emergency services. Guthrie didnt apply for the county administrators job. Of the five selected candidates, one is from Florida; the others are from Illinois, Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina. The job advertised an annual salary of $220,000. Baker currently receives about $192,000. The finalists are: Daniel F. Biles, deputy county manager of Jefferson County, Alabama, located in Birmingham. Biles has a military background and has family living in Florida. He has 10 years of experience in engineering, including work on stormwater issues. Morien said Biles recently received an 18 percent salary boost to $207,500 a year. Its a reflection of his performance and desire of the county to keep him, said Morien. Mark A. Cunningham, assistant county administrator in Sarasota County. Cunningham previously served as executive director of planning and development in Denton, Texas; and, as director of land development in Polk County. Morien said references described him as a good problem solver and a glass-half-full person. You dont have to keep reading, said Starkey. I really like this one. David M. Ross, the first county administrator of Rock Island County, Illinois, which formed its government in 2015. Ross also is a former police officer. Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore and Starkey chimed in during Moriens presentation to say, I like him. Theodore L. Voorhees, the former city manager of Fayetteville, North Carolina. A majority of city council members asked for his resignation in April 2016. Morien said Voorhees initially was recruited to bring change to Fayetteville. He is credited with bringing a minor league baseball team to the city. However, an election scrambled the makeup of the council members, and resulted in tensions between Voorhees and the new council. Since 1980, Fayetteville has fired six city managers, Morien said. Dale M. Walker, county manager of the Macon-Bibb County government, which consolidated in 2014. He previously served as chief administrative officer of the City of Macon. He also worked for 30 years in Cadillac, Michigan, as its director of finance and deputy city manager. The music will begin around 12:30 p.m., with entertainment running through the events conclusion, around 8 p.m. This years musical lineup includes: Tim Serdynski The Higgins Brothers City Groove Stonegrey Shalyah Fearing, a singer from Hudson who will be familiar to fans of the television show, The Voice, is expected to perform around 3 p.m., Gainer said. And, Soul Circus Cowboys, the headline act, will perform around 7 p.m., Gainer added. Food will be available for purchase, including barbecue meals, corn dogs, hamburgers, sliders, and funnel cakes. Beverages for sale include beer, wine, water and soft drinks. There also will be plenty for the kids to do, including games, bounce houses and obstacle courses, Gainer said. The event gives the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce a chance to provide an event that local residents will enjoy, Gainer said. Its a good thing, all around, for the community, Gainer said.

The high school baseball season in Florida has kicked off. Some of the top players and teams in the state reside right here in our coverage area. From Steinbrenner and Gaither to Land O Lakes High, theres no shortage of prep baseball talent.HERES A LOOK AT SOME PLAYERS TO KEEP AN EYE ON AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES:RHP (right-handed pitcher)/INF (infielder) CJ Van Eyk, Sr., Steinbrenner: The 6-foot-2 Florida State commit is looking to build off an eye-opening 2016 campaign (12-1 record, 0.77 ERA, 130 strikeouts), where his performance on the mound buoyed Steinbrenner to the Class 8A state title. His arsenal consists of a low-90s fastball, along with a power curve and changeup. Also an outstanding hitter, Van Eyk batted .340 with five doubles and 13 RBIs in 2016. In October, Van Eyk was one of just 20 players across the country selected to the USA Baseball 18U National Team. Could be a high-round draft pick in the MLB draft in June. RHP/3B (third-baseman) McCabe Sargent, Sr., Land OLakes: The Saint Leo University signee will be relied upon heavily this season following the graduation of RHP Kirby Osborn, now pitching for High Point University in North Carolina. Sargent burst onto the scene last year with a 0.47 ERA and 55 strikeouts in 44.1 innings. His skills with the bat, too, were impressive (.384 average, 16 RBIs). His well-rounded play earned him team most valuable player and Sunshine Athletic Conference (SAC) East Pasco Player of the Year honors. In addition to an 89-mph fastball, Sargent throws a slider, changeup and curveball. Models his game after Jacob deGrom, a starting pitcher for the New York Mets. RHP/INF Darin Kilfoyl, Sr., Academy at the Lakes: At 6-foot-8 and 280 pounds, Kilfoyl is easily the most physically imposing prep player around. And, he has the skillset to back it up. Last year, the St. Johns River College signee had a 0.91 ERA and 97 strikeouts in just 46 innings. He also threw a no-hitter and pitched five complete games, thanks to four functional pitches fastball, curveball, changeup and cutter. Kilfoyl was no slouch at the plate, either, batting .348 with two home runs and 16 RBIs. Over the summer, Kilfoyl played for the Atlanta Blue Jays, an elite travel club for 15-year-olds to 18-year-olds. He also was a standout player for Academys basketball team.

COURTESY OF PASCO-HERNANDO STATE COLLEGEPHSC standout named Pitcher of the WeekArea baseball players to watch COURTESY OF JOHN MEDVID Big Haul! The remarkable run is over. In its first-ever state appearance, the Carrollwood Day School girls basketball team fell just shy in claiming a 3A state championship, losing to Tallahassee FAMU Developmental Research School 46 to 37 on Feb. 23 at the Lakeland Center. Carrollwood (27-3) couldnt overcome a full-court pressure (33 turnovers) nor shaky shooting (30.2 percent) against FAMU (249), which now has won its third straight title the first two coming in Class 2A. Nabaweeyah McGill, a 6-foot-2 freshman center, led Carrollwood with 12 points and 12 rebounds, and Tarriyonna Gary added 10 points and nine rebounds. But, it wasnt enough to keep the Patriots 16-game winning steak intact. Eighth-grade sisters Erin and Erica Turral led the charge for FAMU, combining for 23 points and 12 steals. Senior Dominique Jeffery, FAMUs only starter taller than 5-foot7, contributed eight points, 11 rebounds and four steals. The Rattlers, coached by Erika Cromartie, have been a kryptonite of sorts for Patriots first-year coach Karim Nohra. Nohra, a 24-year coaching veteran who previously coached at Academy at the Lakes, has now lost to FAMU in the state tournament five consecutive times. Carrollwood Days future under Nohra remains bright, however. The Patriots 2017-2018 squad again will be chock full of youthful talent. This seasons roster of 10 players included just two sophomores, six freshmen, an eighth-grader and a seventh-grader. All five starters were freshman, including top player Tiasia McMillan, a forward who averaged 15.8 points and 7.6 rebounds. The Patriots, meanwhile, were the lone high school basketball team (boys or girls) from our coverage area that advanced to the state tournament. In the 3A semifinals on Feb. 21, Carrollwood Day defeated Bradenton Christian 73 to 37. Key Returnees: Cairah Mays, 5-foot-7 freshman guard: 7.1 PPG (points per game), 5.2 RPG (rebounds per game), 6.8 APG (assists per game) Tarriyonna Gary, 5-foot-8 freshman guard:12.2 PPG 4.2 RPG, 3.7 APG Tiasia McMillan, 6-foot freshman forward:15.8 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 48 percent FG (field goals) Nabaweeyah McGill, 6-foot-2 freshman center: 13.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 54 percent FG COURTESY OF CARROLLWOOD DAY SCHOOL Carrollwood Day falls in state title game FILE FILE The qualifiers include:WOMEN Junior Natalia Garriockreceived invitations for the 50 Freestyle, the 100 Freestyle and the 100 Butterfly.

INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B RICHARD RILEY The Pasco County Fair has provided fun to fair-goers for seven decades, and it just wrapped up this years event, which delivered on the theme of years of Homespun Fun. Fair-goers could watch acts ranging from the Axe Women Loggers of Maine, to Robinsons Racing Pigs to a Barnyard Review to Lizzy the Dream Girls Hypnosis Show. There were plenty of livestock shows, a celebrity milk-off and hay bale creations on display. And, there were rides. People could amuse themselves by going on rides that spun them high in the air, or just gave them a great view of the fairgrounds. They also could step right up to try to win prizes at various games on the midway. There were musical acts, including Matts Family Jam, The Triumphant Quartet and The Rob Mills Family Gospel Music, and entertainers who strolled through the fairgrounds. And, of course, corn dogs, boiled peanuts, fresh lemonade and other fair foods. Fair offers a full slate of fun

Apparently, cheese will be the way to her heart. MARY RATHMAN Meet Osceola Osceola is an American Kestrel, also known as a sparrowhawk. He was born in 2009 and has a lifespan of 8 years to 10 years. North Americas smallest and most colorful falcon only weighs about 4 ounces. Kestrels occupy habitats ranging from deserts to grasslands to alpine meadows. The birds perch on telephone wires along roadsides, and in open country with short vegetation and few trees. Florida is home to kestrels year-round.
