Your Local Real Estate & Property Management B INSIDE, PAGE 1B LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM LAND O LAKES EDITION MARCH 8, 2017 B y Kathy SteeleDreams and visions for the redevelopment of Pasco County began more than two decades ago. Today, homes, shops, hotels, offices and medical campuses are coming out of the ground and redrawing the countys future. On March 1, developers of four of Pascos master-planned communities updated more than 100 people who came to the annual Meet the Developers breakfast. The Pasco Economic Development Council sponsored the event at the Marriott Residence Inn, off State Road 54. In closing remarks, Bill Cronin, president of Pasco EDC said, this is the right time, the right place for Pasco CountyIf nothing else, I hope you have that oh, wow effect. Thats not the Pasco I knew. Speakers at the breakfast were Matt Call, project director at Starkey Ranch, which is being developed by Wheelock Communities; Tom Panaseny, vice president and general manager for Bexley by Newland Communities; J.D. Porter, of Wiregrass Ranch Inc.; and, Kartik Goyani, vice president of operations for Metro Development Group Inc. Were all selling this dream and vision of where Pasco can go, Call said. Three years ago, Starkey Ranch, about four miles west of the Suncoast Parkway, off State Road 54, was largely still on the drawing board. Today, Starkey Ranch anticipates having more than 300 new homes under contract in a year, Call said. So far, there have been more than 150 closings, he added. The average price of homes being sold there is in the low to mid-$400,000s. The most expensive home at about 4,800 square feet sold within the past two weeks for about $874,000. Most are not first-time homebuyers, Call said. Most are moving-up buyers. Upcoming projects included widening Gunn Highway and extending the road into Starkey Ranch. About one-third of a 20-mile trail system is built and will eventually connect with Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Preserve and the Suncoast Trail. A business park, fronting State Road 54, is in the works. A town square is planned for 2018. While Newland Communities is new to Pasco, its track record in Tampa Bay includes master-planned communities in Hillsborough County, including FishHawk Ranch in Riverview and Westchase in Town n Country. Panaseny described Newland as the largest private developer of planned communities in the country, with projects in 19 states, stretching from coast to coast. The homebuilders first Pasco community is Bexley Ranch, in an area encompassing about 1,700 acres. It is located also on State Road 54, east of Suncoast Parkway.Development ready to take off COURTESY OF PASCO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COUNCILBill Cronin, president of the Pasco Economic Development Council, left, introduces developers who spoke at a Meet the Developers breakfast. They are: Matt Call, project director of Starkey Ranch/Wheelock Communities; Tom Panaseny, vice president/general manager of Bexley by Newland Communities; J.D. Porter, co-owner of Wiregrass Ranch Inc.; and, Kartik Goyani, vice president of operations for Metro Development Group LLC. By Kathy SteeleA down-home, comfort-style restaurant named Sunsets is expected to open in May on the former site of Hot Rods Country BBQ. The popular dining spot in Lutz, locally famous for selling what it claimed to be swamp bat, closed in 2013. Since then, rumors and speculation have swirled around just what would replace Hot Rods. A wrecking crew took down the old restaurant in March, several months after Sunset Livingston LLC bought the property, at 18430 Livingston Ave., in Lutz. Construction is well underway on Sunsets. The restaurant will be the anchor for a small retail and entertainment plaza that will have an escape room, archery shop, consignment store, insurance agency and a barbecue food trailer, according to an email from real estate broker Jerry Shaw. The concept is simple, good food at an affordable price, said Shaw in the email. There will be a relaxed sit down atmosphere, screened porch, a drive-through window, and a menu with a variety of choices, he added. The other shops, including Lost in Lutz, will occupy existing storefronts located onsite. Exact dates for their openings isnt known yet. Lost in Lutz will be escape room entertainment, where game participants follow clues and solve puzzles in an interactive adventure. Escape rooms are a growing entertainment trend nationwide, according to co-owner Julie Woolary. Players crack the lock and beat the clock, according to the website. The first of three escape rooms to open will have a theme, Stuck in the s. Players will have 60 minutes to solve puzzles, riddles and clues to find their way back to the present. We are hoping that people will come out and test their skills and brainpower, and most importantly have fun, said Woolary. Hot Rods had been a dining staple in Lutz since the late 1990s. Then-owner, Rod Gaudin, started his restaurant with a barbecue pit and a converted wood-frame house next to a country store he operated. In addition to barbecue and cornbread, it had an offbeat menu with specialty items such as lizard tail and armadillo eggs. They were more commonly known as beef steak and cheddar cheese poppers. And, despite the restaurants claims, the swamp bat delicacy actually was quail, according to a published account by Sherri Ackerman, a reporter for The Tampa Tribune.See DEVELOPMENT, page13A KATHY STEELESunsets restaurant, which will open in May, is under construction on Livingston Avenue on the former site of Hot Rods BBQ. Sunsets restaurant to replace Hot Rods BBQ Local youth attends Trumps first speech to Congress By Kevin WeissLike millions of other Americans, Colin Cagle viewed President Donald Trumps first speech to a joint session of Congress on Feb. 28. Unlike most, the 13-year-old Odessa resident, attended Trumps speech in Washington D.C. He was the invited guest of U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis. That fact is even more impressive, considering each member of congress was allotted just one extra ticket for Trumps address. Cagle, a seventh-grader at Martinez Middle School, was thrilled to receive the rare invitation. I was just extremely thankful, and I was in shock. I was so surprised, Cagle, said. Bilirakis first became aware of Cagle when his family requested tickets for President Trumps Inauguration on Jan. 20. (Though Bilirakis office was out of tickets, Rep. Dennis Ross was able to pitch in.) Cagle and Bilirakis have remained in touch, and the congressman became enthralled by the youths keen passion for politics. That was furthered once Bilirakis office came across a 6 -minute NBC News feature on Cagles political interests and ideology. Cagle, an unabashed Trump supporter, left the address content with the presidents remarks on strengthening the military and unifying the country. He put out plans that I know that both Democrats and Republicans can all stand behind, Cagle said. Overall, it was very presidential, and it was an amazing experience.See CONGRESS, page13A COURTESY OF SHARRI AND BILL CAGLEDuring his visit to Washington D.C., 13-yearold Colin Cagle received tours of the U.S. Capitol Building, the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress.

Reut Bardach, MD, FACOG Nay Hoche, MD Dr. Buck earned her medical degree from Michigan State University. She was Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2009 and specializes in roboticassisted gynecological surgery. For the past 10 years, Dr. Buck practiced at Hackley Hospital Mercy Health, near her hometown of Muskegon, Michigan. Growth continues to transform Wiregrass RanchOnce known for its cattle and citrus groves, the Wiregrass Ranch area of Wesley Chapel is now being viewed as a place where people can live, work, shop, learn and receive medical care. During the past decade: Pasco-Hernando State College opened Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, giving Wesley Chapel students their first opportunity to seek a four-year college degree in their own backyard. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel opened, and the demand was so great that the hospital expanded well ahead of expectations. Florida Medical Clinic opened, on land situated near the hospital. North Tampa Behavioral Health opened, and has been so successful that it is already undergoing an expansion. Financial services giant Raymond James closed on the purchase of 65 acres of land and is expected to break ground later this year on a satellite campus, across from the college. And, thats just part of the story, according to J.D. Porter, president of sales and development for Wiregrass Ranch, in Wesley Chapel. Besides the health care, education and commercial projects, residential growth is going strong, too, Porter said. Wiregrass Ranch with 340 housing starts was No. 1 in housing starts in the period ending Dec. 31, 2016, according to a report by MetroStudy. FishHawk Ranch, in southern Hillsborough County, was second on the list with 324 starts. Other Pasco County developments among the top five were Long Lake Ranch, at fourth place, with 227 starts; and, Starkey Ranch, at fifth place, with 219 starts. Porter expects residential growth to continue to flourish in Wiregrass Ranch. He pointed to a contract on a large tract of land for a new active adult community thats expected to close this year.The development, which will have around 1,000 units, will fill a niche in the market, Porter said. Nowhere in Wesley Chapel is there really an age-restricted community, he said. It will be highly amenitized, he said, and will be designed for people who are 55 and older. Another residential development will offer row houses, and will appeal to people who are looking for a maintenance-free lifestyle, he said. More commercial growth is on the horizon, too, Porter said. A 15,000-square-foot medical office is going up next to Florida Medical Clinic, he said, noting the bottom floor will be occupied by an orthodontist. He expects that to open within the next seven months to nine months. Theyre turning dirt like crazy right now, which is fantastic, Porter said. The medical office market is hot, Porter added. We probably get five to 10 calls a day, he said. Its possible that another 100,000 square feet to 150,000 square feet of medical office could be added, he said. Its going to be limited by size. Porter also noted that his family is actually doing a strip center of its own on State Road 54, which will include restaurants and businesses which cater to local needs. And, while theres been a considerable amount of interest about when Raymond James will break ground and bring new employment opportunities, Porter said other major players are also eyeing the Wiregrass Ranch area. Wiregrass is also on the shortlist of a couple of other companies that have equal, if not greater, name recognition as Raymond James, Porter said.Now that we have these foundations, it just ramps up to a different level, which is exciting, Porter said.

ZEPHYRHILLS 813-788-2007 $96 ARPON SPRINGS TA 727-551-4926 T An unseasonably chilly and windy March morning wasnt going to disrupt one familys warm welcome to Land O Lakes. Retired U.S. Army Sgt. David Roca and his three children were on their way to receiving a new home in Connerton, the 4,800-acre mixed-use, master-planned community in central Pasco County. Yet, they had no idea. The Roca family, who currently live in Orlando, assumed they were just going through Operation Finally Homes preliminary interview process on March 3. Instead, they were treated like VIPs, as they received an escort by the Patriot Guard Riders, and were greeted at the site of their new Land O Lakes home by dozens of residents, dignitaries and fellow veterans. The groundbreaking for the familys new one-story, four-bedroom home was a patriotic celebration that left the 36-year-old single father smiling. And, speechless. Its a great feeling, Roca said afterward. Its hard finding the words. Lennar Homes and Connerton partnered with Operation Finally Home to provide the custom-built, mortgage-free home to the army veteran and his children, Amelie, 15; Alex, 14; and, David Jr., 3. Based in Texas, Operation Finally Home has provided more than 150 mortgage-free homes for veterans during the past 10 years. The nonprofit was one of three organizations that MacDill Air Force Base recommended to Connerton officials. The ceremony marked the sixth home Lennar has provided to military families around the country, and the first in the Tampa Bay market. Construction has already begun on the 2,065-square-foot home, at 8743 Savory Walk Drive. The family of four is expected to move in on April 30, thanks to an expedited permitting and review process by Pasco County. Like other recipients of Operation Finally Home, Rocas background is honorable, yet heart-wrenching. The native of Queens, New York, enlisted in August 2004 as a 13F Forward Observer. During his deployment to Iraq, he sustained several traumatic brain injuries in combat, one of which occurred when an improvised explosive devise hit his vehicle. Upon returning home, Rocas injuries prevented him from performing in physical training. He experienced mood swings and severe headaches, too. After thorough evaluation, Roca medically retired in December 2008. Today, Roca still suffers from several brain injuries, migraines, sprained ankles and post-traumatic stress disorder. In service, Roca received numerous accolades, including the Valor Device, an award for saving his Commanders life in battle. He has also received an Army Commendation Medal, Joint Meritorious Unit Award and Army Good Conduct Medal. Rusty Carroll, executive director of Operation Finally Home, was particularly moved by Rocas background. He suffered through countless incidents that nobody would want to go through, Carroll said. But, his courage and valor stood true, and he helped save lives. Upon retiring in 2008, Roca moved his family to Long Island, where he hoped to recover and continue his bachelors degree at Nassau Community College. But, he struggled with concentration and memory due to his wartime injuries, and opted to focus on his mental and physical health before continuing school. He and his three children moved to Florida for a better life. The thing that stood out to me when I first saw Davids story, was his commitment to his family, Carroll said. That certainly has shined through ever since I was able to know David and meet him. Operation Finally Home, Carroll noted, simply connects the dots among communities, builders and subcontractors, to honor veterans. David and others just like him dont feel like they deserve it, but they do, Carroll said. He has paid for it. Hes paid it through his service and his sacrifice to this country, so hes earned it. Once the family moves to Land O Lakes, Roca said he eventually wants to work with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to find employment that suits his skills, and immerse his family into the community.Army vet gets big surprise:A mortgage-free home COURTESY OF GREY STREET STUDIOS INC.

Gus Bilirakis is looking for nominations for the second annual Heroes Among Us event. The event honors men and women who make communities within Floridas 12th congressional district special. It aims to recognize those who are dedicated to good deeds, volunteerism and going above and beyond to serve others. We all know that the Tampa Bay Area is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. Its time we recognize the individuals who help make our community so special. If you know somebody who makes a positive difference for others, I encourage you to nominate them to receive a Heroes Among Us award, Bilirakis said, in a news release announcing the call for nominations. Last years honorees included: Selena Schulz: This 9-year-old author from Pasco County wrote A Bed, a Buck, a Buddy about helping shelter animals. She raised $1,500 in donations to the Pasco County Animal Shelter. Bob OBrien and Vince Blancato: These teachers at Gulfside Elementary School in Holiday help students understand the benefits of growing and eating vegetables. Susan Traylor: This registered nurse in Pasco County founded Wellness Ministries, a charity that helps provide local homeless or vulnerable individuals with health care, transportation, clothing, and job resources. Marie Whitney and Lee Pagill: These were the Pasco County Sheriffs Office Mounted Unit Volunteers of the Year in 2015 Paula and Barry Cohen: These are the founders of the PACK Camp, a nonprofit summer camp for special needs children in Pasco County. Nancy Crane and Sarah Page: These women work at Quantum Leap Farm in Odessa, a nonprofit that provides therapeutic horseback riding for adults and children with mental/physical disabilities, including Veterans. Nominations for this years award must be submitted by March 31. Submissions can be emailed to Tucker OBrien at They should include the nominees name, email address, phone number and reasons why he or she should be recognized. Last year, about 100 citizens were honored with a Heroes Among Us award at a ceremony in the district. The congressman will host a ceremony recognizing nominees later this spring.Bilirakis looking for Heroes Among Us COURTESY OF U.S. REP. GUS BILIRAKIS

A local campaign also aims to raise about $200,000 for a tactical training program onsite for Pasco’s K-9 unit. Those efforts will be spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Wesley Chapel. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco outlined details for the Florida Forensic Institute for Research, Security & Tactical Training, or F.I.R.S.T., at a Feb. 27 press conference. The campus has the potential of becoming the “Silicon Valley” of forensic anthropology research and an economic boost for Pasco, Nocco said. “This is really going to be a forensics hub,” he said. “It is a unique opportunity.” State Rep. Danny Burgess, Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore, and Erin Kimmerle, associate professor of anthropology at the University of South Florida and director of the Florida Institute of Forensic Anthropology & Applied Science, were among those attending the press conference. Burgess and State Sen. Wilton Simpson plan to request state funding for the project during the upcoming legislative session. The Pasco County Commission gave its approval to the project in January, and donated county land next to the jail. The indoor and outdoor facility would be the seventh in the nation to study body decomposition as an aid in solving crimes, and identifying victims of murder or other trauma. It also would bring together research and practical applications of crime solving, forensic anthropology and criminal prosecution in a single location. Partners in the project are PascoHernando State College and the IFAAS, with Kimmerle leading the anthropology team. Kimmerle and USF are well-known for their work in identifying bodies found in unmarked graves at the former Dozier School for Boys in Marianna. The campus in Pasco would include a laboratory for research and forensic casework, classrooms, a morgue and evidence storage. The educational focus would be on forensics, anthropology, geochemistry, legal medicine, forensic intelligence, aviation reconstruction and cyber forensics. Technology will be a major part of the research, including virtual autopsies with 3D scanning and chemical isotope analysis, Kimmerle said.The K-9 portion of the project would be the first time Pasco has had a dedicated facility for tactical training for the K-9 unit, the Pasco Unified SWAT team, and sheriff’s deputies.The new research center, called F.I.R.S.T. for short, would be a resource for universities, forensic scientists and law enforcement in the entire state. It can aid in tactical training and quick response to active shooter situations, missing person investigations, homicides and terrorist attacks.Nocco said the recent attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando showed the need for greater preparedness and communications between local, state and federal law enforcement.It also could help build a statewide database of an estimated 16,000 cold cases in Florida, Nocco said. And, he added, it will provide career opportunities for college students through internships, as well as professional certificates and degrees. The University of Tennessee in Knoxville was the first to establish a forensic training and research center in the 1970s. Others are at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Western Carolina University, Sam Houston State University, Texas State University in Carbondale, Southern Illinois University and Colorado Mesa University. The “body farm” label came into use after crime novelist Patricia Cornwell wrote “The Body Farm” in 1994. Her protagonist, Kay Scarpetta, solves a child’s murder with help from a secretive research facility in Tennessee known as the Body Farm. In 2015, USF proposed a forensic training center in Hillsborough County’s Lithia Springs. Nearby residents objected, and USF dropped the project. Residents had concerns about safety and security with a “body farm” near their neighborhood. The proposed site will be fenced off, and Moore said, “There’s no chance of anyone getting in here and disturbing the site. It’s a great opportunity not just for our people, but for people nationwide to come here and participate.” FILEPasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco outlined details for the Florida Forensic Institute for Research, Security & Tactical Training, or F.I.R.S.T., during a Feb. 27 press conference.

His 29 years in these interrelated fields have taken him around the globe to Canada, England, Germany, California, Georgia, and for the past seven years, Florida. Of course, hes fluent in both Spanish and English, but because of his extensive studies, you might say hes most fluent in the human musculoskeletal system. In February, Dr. Carrazana opened a new chiropractic clinic in Land OLakes, in a plaza on U.S. 41 at the Dale Mabry Apex, located just north of St. Lukes Dental.

Alex DaSilva, director of operations, said the shop chose that location because the area is experiencing residential and commercial growth, and Dunkin Donuts likes to get in on the front end of new development. Its an up-and-coming market, DaSilva said. Lewis said she knows her dad, George M. Lewis, who spent his final years in Lutz, would be happy to see how the spot where he had his real estate office is being put to use. Hed be glad to see that a family-oriented business is operating there, Lewis said. Her dad was originally from the Kansas/Missouri area, she said. He did various kinds of work through the years, said Smith, who has been a friend of Lewis for more than 30 years. He worked for the shipyard first, Smith said. Then, from the shipyard, he did dredging, she said. The dredging work involved area canals, and dredging for pipelines in South America, Smith added. He also got into ranching and real estate. At one point, he had 1,000 acres in Tarpon Springs, Lewis said. He also had 10 acres on Gunn Highway, in Citrus Park. Lewis recalls helping her dad, when she was young. I used to trail my dad around all of the time, handing him tools and driving the tractor, she said. When she was older, she went to work for Maas Bros., earning $28 a week, but decided that wasnt the life for her. I went out at lunchtime and joined the Army, she said. She enlisted for three years, but had to stay longer because of the Korean War. After that, she used her G.I. Bill to get her education and then became an industrial arts teacher, teaching woodshop in New Jersey for 35 years before retiring to Lutz. Smith, whose mother was Lewis mothers best friend, has been a close friend for more than three decades. The women share a home in Lutz. Lewis mother, Smith said, was like my mothers sister. Both women were enjoying a trip down memory lane during their recent Dunkin Donuts visit. At one point, Lewis dad had a huge sign in front of his real estate business on U.S 41, Smith recalled People would pay him to use the sign for advertising. It was 20 (feet) to 30 feet high, Smith said. When they would come and put an advertisement on it, he would tell them: No alcohol, no tobacco, nothing offensive, Smith said. He went to Lutz Baptist, right down the street, and he said, My people see that and I want something nice on the sign, she explained. One time they put up a cigarette ad. He called, and they came and took it down right away. When Dunkin Donuts was under construction, they had to keep the sign on the property it was planted too deep into the ground for them to remove it, Smith said. I was here when they put it in. It has to be cemented in about 15 feet deep. Itll never come out, Smith said. They tried to get it out of the ground and they couldnt, so they just built the Dunkin Donuts sign around it, she said. A piece of him is always here, Smith said. B.C. MANION A breakfast sandwich, with a side of nostalgia

The program seeks to develop learners who are reflective, confident, engaged, responsible and innovative, according to a PowerPoint presentation shown to interested parents at a meeting on Feb. 23 at Wesley Chapel Elementary School. Applications for the programs at Pasco Middle and Pasco High are already closed for this year, but the elementary program is accepting applications, said Kimberly Anderson, principal of San Antonio Elementary School. Anyone interested must complete the application by March 16. A timed writing test will be given at the elementary school on March 17. The times for the test will vary, based on the students age. The program has made provisions to ensure that academically gifted students will work with academically gifted teachers. Gifted certified teachers will work with Cambridge teachers, and gifted teachers will meet monthly with students to monitor their progress toward their goals. Pasco County Schools will provide transportation to children who will be transferring to San Antonio Elementary, through the use of satellite bus stops. Stop locations havent been determined yet. Cambridges mission statement, in part, reads: We prepare students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. Our programs and qualifications set the global standard for international education. A brochure distributed by Pasco County Schools says the Cambridge approach supports schools to develop learners who are: Confident in working with information and ideas their own and others Responsible for themselves, responsible to and respectful of others Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference By adding the program at San Antonio Elementary, students on the east side of U.S. 41 will now have an opportunity to pursue the Cambridge Programme at elementary, middle and high school levels. Cambridge advanced level courses are considered to be equivalent to the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate program classes, and Cambridge students can earn up to 45 hours of college credits. Students receiving an AICE diploma through Cambridge and completing 100 hours of community service qualify for the maximum Florida Academic Scholar tuition scholarship. Students who do not attend a Pasco County public school or charter school are asked to have the main office at their school send a grade history (transcript) and standardized assessment score history to: Ms. Kimberly Anderson, principal of San Antonio Elementary School, 32416 Darby Road Dade City, Florida 33525. The school will send out acceptance notifications in April. If there are too many qualified candidates, a lottery system will be used. Deadline for applying is March 16. Applications are available on San Antonio Elementary Schools website, Applicants also must complete a timed writing sample on March 17 in the media center at San Antonio Elementary, 32416 Darby Road in Dade City. The timed writing samples will be done for incoming first-graders at 9:30 a.m., and incoming secondthrough fifth-graders at 12:30 p.m. The writing sample is not something that requires study or preparation by students. Extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration, and alternate writing dates are available by contacting Principal Kimberly Anderson at (352) 5245300. While students are completing their writing sample, parents are invited to enjoy complimentary refreshments in the schools cafeteria.

The teenagers visit to Washington D.C. also included tours of the U.S. Capitol Building, the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress. It was really awesome, he said. Though Cagle always has had an interest in politics, his curiosity peaked following the Feb. 2016 death of his 75-year-old grandfather, Lyndon Hooper. According to Cagles mother, Sharri, the youths grandfather was extremely involved in politics, assisting with numerous campaigns, including former Republican Congresswoman Katherine Harris. Following his grandfathers death, Cagle closely monitored the 2016 presidential race, heavily researching the hot-button issues. Trumps position on health care reform and immigration were two of many Cagle agreed with. I kind of formed my own opinions, and they happened to match up with President Trumps, Cagle explained. He then put his conservative principles in action. Prior to the election of the 45th president, Cagle volunteered at Republican call centers in Carrollwood, Brandon and Orlando. He also attended three of President Trumps campaign rallies in Tampa, Lakeland and Ocala. Being such an open Trump supporter has come with some challenges, however. Cagles mother acknowledged her son has received a lot of backlash. Yet, hes stood firm in his viewpoints. Im proud of him, she said. I think thats important to stand with your convictions, and not waver when you believe in something, and not change who you are depending on who youre with, he said. She added: I know how ugly politics can be. So, we try to use things as a learning experience for him, and hes seen the good and the bad. Cagle said he hopes one day to make a difference in politics, perhaps as a senator or congressman. Id like to work for a congressman when Im in college, so that way I can get some hands-on experience, he said. I just like how all the congressman and senators are running to make a difference, to help our country be better. With plans to start a Young Republicans Club at Martinez Middle, his passion for government and politics doesnt appear to be waning anytime soon. He spends so much time and effort learning the issues at hand, and trying to base his opinion on facts, his mother said. We just tell him to be open-minded, listen to both sides, and base your opinion on facts, and try not to engage in ugliness. Meanwhile, the young conservative remains pleased with President Trump, less than two months in office. Everything hes said hes going to do, hes doing it, Cagle said. Hes not really backtracking. Obviously, hes going to have to make some compromises, which is what hes saying. But, hes still sticking to the main principles of what he said hes going to be doing. i n g an d r o v v Offer F e e erPrescr ansf r r T W Fla FREE H O erPrescr ansf r Tr T ou ill y F y Bli s y /month l e ek l d w Met F REE Antibiotic s e $1 tions & R ip eceiv O ME DE L e$1 ve tions&R ip eceiv iptions in Min u r Prescr ks! c a s ter P m in for tCard! 0 Gif Y RY LIVER tCard! 0Gif u tes! 8138037303 ance AcceptingMostInsur es Pha Lak Land O y 9 y 8:30am 6pm; Saturda ida r y-FMonda 813 803 7303 ance Accepting Most Insur SeHablaEspanol mac y ar 9 am-12 pm Se Habla Espanol & r e D EEP D GRAND OPE N Bu y Y BREAD R EE e ceive a D EEP DISH 0 3-7922 d and operated L ittle Caesars, N ING! p ping Centeres Lak d O y ONE Belk Publix CRAZY Parkway Pak kw Parkway F R Collier Comm o 2099 Collie r 54 54 C 813-8 0 amily owne d F our local L Yo Y o ns Publix Sho p Lan d y, r P arkway CollierP lli r P Collier P I ru o Yo Y a eci Sp yru j nj I n j tsil a y Consul t ee In j ur Fr C A t atio n .ca www C H CA arrazanachir IR O PRA C TI C A RRAZAN A March 8, 201713A Basic Wash Wash & Wax Full Detail Home Pressure Washing Also Available Keep your car looking great.Call Curtis for Appointment 813.347.0502$55.00 WASH & WAX $75 Value$65.00 HEADLIGHT RESTORATION up to $100 Value MOBILE DETAILING The Bexley family is developing another 5,000 adjacent acres still under their control. The Newland project is zoned for more than 1,700 homes; about 95,000 square feet of retail; and, more than 560,000 square feet of office, though that could increase to as much as 1 million square feet. About five miles of a planned 13-mile trail system is built. An elementary school now under construction is scheduled to open in August. About 400 lots are available, with 400 additional lots expected to be ready by the end of the year. Twelve model homes are open for viewing. Bexley also is planned for offices, shops and a hotel, as well as apartments and single-family homes. A groundbreaking is anticipated in March for more than 300 apartments. Access to Bexley currently is through the Ballantrae community to the east. But, within 60 to 90 days, Panaseny said BexleyVillage Drive should open, with access directly off State Road 54. The average home price is about $350,000. Its been a strong market, Panaseny said. Upcoming projects include a medical facility, a Race Trac gas station and convenience store, and a 7-acre shopping center. Wed love to have a grocery store anchor the center, or possibly restaurants, Panaseny said. A Marriott hotel is expected to break ground in July. There also is about 32 acres available for offices. We very much want to bring Class A office space here, he said. Wiregrass Ranch is rebranding itself, with a new logo and a re-energized focus as new developments in the master-planned community emerge. Wiregrass is the fastest growing community in the Tampa Bay area, said Porter, president of sales and development for Wiregrass Ranch Inc. The property is zoned for 10,500 homes; 2.7 million square feet of retail; 2.6 million square feet of office; and 600 hotel beds. A middle school and a high school have been built. Additional retail and office space are planned. Next to The Shops at Wiregrass, plans are underway for an expansion that will include high-end shops and boutiques, a cine bistro, a grocery store and apartments. Raymond James Financial campus is expected to start construction later this year on a campus that could have about 1 million square feet of office space and an 1,800-space parking garage. Medical facilities are filling up the surrounding area. They include Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, Florida Medical Clinic and North Tampa Behavioral Health. Beach House is an upscale assisted living facility under construction. Youre going to continue to see good, smart growth because its an environment people want to be in, said Porter. Metro Development Group is building a master-planned community at Epperson Ranch with 37,000 homes; 12 million square-feet of office, retail and technology manufacturing; 100 miles of traffic lanes for self-driving vehicles; and two Crystal Lagoons. The lagoon at Epperson Ranch is a 7acre, manmade pool of crystal blue water under construction at Epperson Ranch, off State Road 52 at Overpass Road. To the north, a second community, known as Mirada, is also planned with a larger Crystal Lagoon. Metros communities are part of the Connected City, a state-approved pilot program to develop about 7,800 acres in northeastern Pasco. Metro and other developers are expected to build master-planned communities embedded with cutting-edge technology, and focused on creating technology driven jobs and new businesses. A groundbreaking for the Crystal Lagoon at Epperson happened in February. The lagoon is expected to be complete by the end of 2017. In the first weeks, 15 homes have sold, and there is a waiting list of more than 1,000 people who want to buy, said Kartik Goyani, vice president of operations for Metro.

From Land O Lakes to Steinbrenner, theres no shortage of prep softball talent.SOME PLAYERS TO WATCH AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES: Pitcher Alexis Kilfoyl, sophomore, Academy at the Lakes: Just a few weeks into the 2017 season, the 6-foot-1 sophomore ace and University of Alabama commit is already living up to the national hype she received throughout the preseason. Kilfoyl, a varsity standout since seventh grade, has won her first five starts, tallying a 0.50 ERA and 50 strikeouts through 28 innings. Her presence is also being felt at the plate, with a .471 average and a team-leading three home runs. Kilfoyl was selected in January to join the 2017 USA Softball Junior Womens National Training Team, along with just 23 other athletes nationwide. She is known for her ability as a drop-ball pitcher. Infielder/Outfielder Isabella Huff, junior, Sunlake High: A transfer from Bishop McLaughlin, the versatile fielder is on a tear this season for the Seahawks, batting a whopping .625, with two home runs, a triple and seven RBIs, through five games. Its not a surprise, considering Huff had a breakout season in 2016, batting .441, with four home runs, six triples and 18 RBIs. Huff is also a threat on the base paths (nine steals in 2016). She was a 2016 Miracle Sports All-State Class 3A Honorable Mention. Pitcher Callie Turner, sophomore, Land O Lakes High: This season, Turner has been tasked with assuming the ace pitcher role vacated by Shannon Saile, now at Florida International University. Through five appearances, Turner has handled the challenge swimmingly, compiling a 0.68 ERA and 68 strikeouts through 31 innings. A University of Tennessee commit, Turner is quickly establishing herself as one the regions top pitchers. As a freshman in 2016, Turner won five games, netting a 0.46 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 46 innings. Pitcher Hailee DeCicco, junior, Gaither High: The 5-foot-10 right-hander is picking up precisely where she left off in 2016. Through two starts, DeCicco has a 0.00 ERA and 20 strikeouts through 12 innings. Last season, DeCicco was one of the most unhittable pitchers in Hillsborough County, compiling a 0.91 ERA and 86 strikeouts in 100.1 innings. In 2016, she was a Hillsborough County Western Conference American Division First-Team selection and a 2016 Miracle Softball All-state Class 7A Second-Team selection. Shortstop/Catcher Emma Frost, senior, Carrollwood Day School: Perhaps the most consistent hitter in our coverage area, Frost is looking to put together one of the more impressive four-year prep careers in recent memory. An immediate impact player since her freshman year, Frost has eye-popping career numbers in several categories, including batting average (.664), triples (21), doubles (24), hits (103), runs (92) and stolen bases (51). Through four games this season, Frost has already slugged two homers and is batting .615. A Florida International University signee, Frost is lauded by coaches for her all-around athleticism and deep understanding of the game. THREE TEAMS TO KEEP AN EYE ON:Land O Lakes High: Despite graduating three starters including former dominant ace Shannon Saile the Gators, coached by Mitch Wilkins, are still primed as a regional powerhouse. Plenty of skill and depth remain from last years 27-win team that advanced to the Class 6A state semifinals. A trio of juniors Tia Williams, Ashley Smith, Brianna Lindner expect to offer plenty of support for sophomore ace Callie Turner. Meanwhile, opponents will have to contend with several heady baserunners, like sophomore Shelby Westbrook and senior Jessie McCallister. The Gators are currently 5-1.Academy at the Lakes: Armed with one of the nations elite pitchers in Alexis Kilfoyl, the Wildcats also add a bevy of power-hitting youngsters in eighthgraders Kendra Falby, Brooke Blankenship and Devyne Davis, each of which are already making an immediate impact for the 6-0 Wildcats. It doesnt hurt, either, to have an experienced Division I coach anchoring the program. In the offseason, the Wildcats hired Diane Stephenson to oversee the teams move to Class 3A. Stephenson served as the head softball coach at Indiana University from 1987 to 2002. She was also an assistant softball coach at both the University of Iowa (2008-2010) and Purdue University (20102013). More recently, Stephenson was the head softball coach at Division II Saint Josephs College (2014-2015) in Renssalaer, Indiana. Steinbrenner High: Already off to a blistering 6-0 start, the Warriors winning ways dont appear to be going away anytime soon, especially under third-year coach Brenda Leach. In addition to having one of Hillsborough Countys top pitchers in Emalee Jansen (a University of Tampa signee), the Warriors return five .300 hitters from the 2016 squad. Also a solid team defensively, the Warriors figure to win several close games. Over the last two seasons, Steinbrenner has 40-13 combined record. FILECOURTESY OF EDWIN RODRIGUEZArea softball preview For the fifth time in seven years, the Pasco-Hernando State College cheer team won the state championship title in the College Co-Ed Level 6 division at the American Championships Official Florida Championships Cheer and Dance competition. The team received a score of 88.78 out of 100, during the Feb. 11 competition at the Florida State Fair. We pushed really hard, and the team faced some adversity this semester; however, they pulled together and made it happen, Sophia Fluellen, the teams coach, said in a statement. The teams next challenge is March 17, when they travel to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to compete in the Cheer Ltd. Collegiate Nationals at Canam. The college placed fourth at nationals last year, and fifth in 2015. Our sights are always set on improvement hoping for a first place this year, Fluellen said.

The Gators, coached by Brian Wachtel, are looking to rebound from a disappointing 2-6 season that saw them go winless at home. The 10-game regular season slate includes six road trips and four home games: at Lecanto (May 18, 7 p.m.) (Spring Game) at Wesley Chapel (Aug. 18, 7 p.m.) (Preseason Game) at Ridgewood (Aug. 25, 7:30 p.m.) at Anclote (Sept. 1, 7:30 p.m.) vs. Hernando (Sept. 8, 7:30 p.m.) at Sunlake (Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m.) at Cypress Creek (Sept. 22, 7:30 p.m.) Bye (Sept. 29) at Lakeland Christian (Oct. 6, 7:30 p.m.) at Springstead (Oct. 13, 7:30 p.m.) vs. Pasco (Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m.) vs. Mitchell (Oct. 27, 7:30 p.m.) vs. Fivay (Nov. 3, 7:30 p.m.) The Gators, meanwhile, expect to return quarterback Jude May (466 passing yards, 1 touchdown, five interceptions) and tailback Kyle Leivas, the teams rushing (308 yards) and receptions leader (20 catches). Linebacker Myron Bloom, the Gators leading tackler (119 tackles), is another key contributor likely to return.HILLSBOROUGH ALL-STAR SOCCER PLAYERSThe following prep athletes from our coverage area were selected to participate in the 24th annual Senior Soccer Challenge, in which chosen all-stars from Hillsborough County high schools face off against those from Pinellas County high schools.

INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B When I told a friend at work years ago I lived in Safety Harbor, he said, Ah, Safety Harbor. It sounds like a place where nothing bad ever happens. It sometimes seems that way still. With a crime rate less than half that of Floridas, this little town on the northwestern edge of Old Tampa Bay is the perfect place to take long walks, picnic in a picturesque park, or pick up a book from one of the Little Free Library boxes scattered around town like whimsical birdhouses. Locals seem to like that the town has only 17,139 residents, and that they often run into neighbors at Main Streets 3rd Friday Music Series or at Market on Main every Sunday at the gazebo.The Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce even advertises the 4.92-squaremile town as a secret little hideaway, that for years did not have one single cellphone tower. It doesnt have as many restaurants, breweries or shops as its more glamorous sister city, Dunedin, but it has plenty of options to please visitors looking for quiet walks, good places to eat and to fly kites. Some residents are so proud of Safety Harbor, they nicknamed themselves Harborites, and, to celebrate the towns 100th birthday this year, they launched a literary journal and a project to collect video town memories. Theyve also planned 100 centennial events, including those the town usually hosts annually. The towns jewel is Philippe Park, a Pinellas County park just 1 miles north of downtown, bordering Old Tampa Bay. It has a boat ramp, picnic shelters and tables, playgrounds, paths along the bay, and plenty of places to launch kayaks and paddleboards. A canopy of ancient oaks arches over the parks main road, leading toward a 20-foot temple mound used by the Tocobaga tribe, which left the area in the mid-1700s. The top of the mound offers million-dollar views of the bay and is a popular setting for weddings. On weekends, especially, the park teems with bikers and walkers, many with dogs on leashes, a park rule requirement. Birdwatchers are likely to see great blue herons, night herons, snowy egrets, ospreySlip away to Safety Harbor, a secret little hideaway KAREN HAYMON LONG and the rarer roseate spoonbills. We once even saw a flock of flamingoes, just south of the park. We like to leave our car at the park and walk south along a bayside sidewalk to downtown to see manatees from the municipal pier, just south of the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. Then, we have lunch in town before walking back. Often, between November and early May, four or five manatees float in the bay right next to the pier. On a recent visit, a Washington State visitor looked amazed to see five manatee faces -bursting from the water for air. A boy named Colin peered over the pier railing and called out I love you, manatees repeatedly, while fishermen took time out from cast netting for mullet to watch the manatee show. Meanwhile, in Veterans Memorial Marina Park, between the pier and the Safety Harbor City Marina, families picnicked under a shelter, enjoying the bay breezes. The towns annual seafood festival this year March 10 through March 12 in Waterfront Park, across from the marina, attracts visitors from throughout the bay area. Safety Harbor prides itself on its festivals, featuring everything from arts and crafts to a sidewalk chalk art festival March 18 through March 19, a British car show Oct. 21, and a wine festival Nov. 4. From the marina, its an easy walk to Main Street and to the towns restaurants from Whistle Stop Grill and Bar, known for fried green tomatoes; to Bar fly, a locals favorite, with a popular Taco Tuesday; to the pricier critics pick, Parts of Paris, a French bistro serving smoked frogs legs, duck confit and other delicacies. Two pizza restaurants, a barbecue place, a Latin American cantina and Green Springs Bistro, known for tasty bison burgers, are among other options. The Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass, at 247 Main St., is worth a visit, with art shows, as well as artwork, glass and jewelry for sale. And, we like Tupelo on 4th, a boutique in a turquoise house with a tin roof that sells home decor, jewelry and womens fashion. But mostly, we go downtown to stroll, to manatee watch and to eat lunch. One day, we bought tasty sandwiches at The Sandwich on Main and picnicked in Veterans Memorial Marina Park. The sandwich shops motto: We Got It Good a sentiment that might well describe Safety Harbor itself. COURTESY OF MARCIA BIGGS If you go:Safety Harbor is in northern Pinellas County, off McMullen Booth Road. Its downtown is roughly south of State Road 580 and north of County Road 611. Philippe Park is at 2525 Philippe Park Parkway. Hours are daily 7 a.m. to dusk, and closed only the Friday after Thanksgiving and on Christmas. For events, including those for the citys centennial, and for dining options, visit For a map of downtown, see, or stop by the chamber of commerce, at 200 Main St., for free visitors guides and attraction brochures.
