Your Local Real Estate & Property Management B INSIDE, PAGE 1B LAND O LAKES EDITION The Land O Lakes High School Science Olympiad Club has reached the state finals for the third year in a row. Moreover, its the first year that two of the clubs teams consisting of 15 students each have advanced to the Florida Science Olympiad State Tournament. This year the event is set for March 25, at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. The clubs achievements are notable, particularly considering that it is just four years old. Team Exdee and Team Natural Selection, made up primarily of International Baccalaureate (IB) students, will compete against 40 teams from across Florida. Both Land O Lakes squads qualified after finishing in the top six in a field of 47 regional teams at the Western Regional Science Olympiad, held Feb. 4 at Hillsborough Community College-Brandon. A third team Andromeda finished 11th at the regional event. Land O Lakes High School is the only public high school in Pasco County to reach the state competition this year. Now, with multiple teams in the fold, the club is eyeing the possibility of a better showing than its 11th place finish last year. I think its about improvement, said Amanda Faint, the clubs sponsor, who teaches chemistry at Land O Lakes High. We know how we did at regionals. We know states is tougher, so if we can...stick at COURTESY OF AMANDA FAINT Local science club reaches state finalsPasco County officials are hoping a letter of support from Gov. Rick Scott, and an executive order from President Donald Trump, could finally lead to a permit to build the Ridge Road extension. For 19 years, the county has pursued the permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for an approximately 8-mile road extension that would cut through a portion of the Serenova Preserve. The road extension is a high priority for the county to give residents an additional evacuation route during hurricanes. But, critics of the project vow to fight an extension of the road. Clay Colson, chairman of the nonprofit Citizens for Sanity Inc., said development, not a hurricane route, is behind the countys efforts to extend Ridge Road through the preserve. The county had this idea of entitlement, he said. They think they are entitled to the permit. A county delegation, including Pasco County Administrator Michele Baker and Pasco County commissioners Kathryn Starkey and Jack Mariano, went to Washington D.C., in early March, to lobby for the project. During an unexpected meetup with the governor, Baker asked him to write a letter supporting the project. U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis also wrote a letter of support and sent it to President Trump. According to the presidents executive order, the White House Council on Environmental Quality would have 30 days to respond to the governors request for priority status for Ridge Road. Scotts office has not responded to The Laker/Lutz News to inquiries about the letter. The presidents executive order directsQuest continues for Ridge Road permit Things didnt go exactly as planned. The permanent stage event organizers had hoped to use remains under construction. There were also some pre-event traffic snarls. And, electrical problems threw off the schedule, precluding Stonegrey, the first musical act, from being able to perform. Those at the festival had the chance to hear performances by The Higgins Brothers, Shalyah Fearing, City Groove and Soul Circus Cowboys. The event was presented by the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, as a way to give back to the community. David Gainer, the event chairman and president-elect for the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, was disappointed things didnt go as smoothly as planned. With all the pre-planning and walkthrough the day before, we somehow still had a couple of issues. It was disappointing not to have Stonegrey open the show. We sincerely apologize to them and, more importantly, their fan base who came out to see them, he said. Overall, though, those attending the second annual Land O Lakes Music Festival seemed to be having a good time. People were checking out the vintage Cadillac and old-school Nova, the Teslas, and the other vehicles that owners were showing off at the Al and Ida Silver Memorial Car Show. Event-goers also were grabbing a bite to eat, including barbecued meals served by Hungry Harrys Family Bar-B-Que, hot dogs from D&R Specialty Dogs, and food and drink from other vendors. And, the mood was generally upbeat, as people strolled up and down vendor aisles, checking out displays and picking up freebies at the March 11 event at the Land O Lakes Community Center and Park. This is a great day, said Phyllis Bross, who was working at the AARP Land O Lakes Chapters booth to raise awareness about the organization. People seem happy, and I see children with balloons. Everyone loves the food. Rosie Heim was at the festival trying to garner support for her bid to be the next COURTESY OF SUZANNE BEAUCHAINE Local festival offers music, car show, food B.C. MANION

There are all sorts of activities planned, including a dog wagon parade, a dog costume contest, a K-9 challenge, a Canine Got Talent contest and an ice cream/yogurt eating contest. In the ice cream/yogurt eating contest, Avila said, The dog gets the dog yogurt, the human gets the ice cream. When they say, On your mark, get set, go, they take the lids off of their containers and the humans hold the one for the dog, and the humans hold their own, and they can only use their mouth, their tongue. Its great. It is so much fun, Avila said. The K-9 challenge has been very popular, too, she said. Dogs compete in the small, medium and large categories. They have to complete a course, which is timed. But, there are things along the way to sidetrack them, including treats, a ball and other distractions. That has been a hit, she said. We are just really proud of our community to be able to put this on, she said. Another highlight of the event will be a 1 p.m. presentation by a speaker from Canine Partners for Patriots, of Brooksville. We are so proud to have them come to our event, she said. In that program, dogs and veterans are connected. The speaker will be sharing stories of those special connections. The dogs mean so much to these people. They just have made a better quality of life for them, she said. The Canine Got Talent portion of the event is always a big hit, as people show off dogs who can jump through hoops, bark along with music and do other fun pet tricks, Avila said. This event gets dogs tails waggin


A few Irish quotes in honor of St. Patricks Day"May those who love us love us. And those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts. And if he doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles, so we will know them by their limping." -Irish saying "May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palms of his hands." -An old Irish proverb "I can resist anything about temptation." -Oscar Wilde May you always be blessed with walls for the wind A roof for the rain A warm cup of tea By the fire Laughter to cheer you Those you love Near you And all that Your heart Might desire. -An old Gaelic blessing May the good Lord take a liking to you but not too soon. -Irish saying $5 OFF YOUR FIRS T Call for your quote toda y TION AT .... 100mg/20tabs o Sp e Qual iVIAGRA OVER 2000 MEDICA HELP WE COU LD T ORDER!* eceive... y and r AILABLE VA AV NS A $96 n your Medi c e nding a Sm a ve trusted i ty thousands ha ..........

Its a day when the Irish and the Irish-at-heart celebrate Irish culture with parades, dancing and special foods, as well as green everywhere including turning rivers green and drinking green beer. So, why all of the green? In the beginning, green wasnt the color associated with St. Patrick, it was blue. Over time, it changed because green represent the emerald isle, which refer to the beautiful green landscapes of Ireland. At first, people put green shamrocks in their lapels, and later green showed up in clothing, to represent the day. A typical St. Patricks Day meal consists of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and, of course, crusty Irish soda bread. This recipe will help you bake the bread to enjoy at your St. Patricks Day celebration.Betsy Crisp recently retired from a 29year career as an Extension Family & Consumer Sciences agent and a licensed dietitian for the University of Florida/IFAS. COURTESY OF BETSY CRISP Crusty Irish Soda BreadINGREDIENTS: 4 cups all-purpose flour 4 tablespoons white sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 tablespoon caraway seeds (optional) 1 cup to 2 cups raisins (optional) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup margarine/butter 1 cup buttermilk 1 egg Plus: 2 Tablespoons melted butter/margarine mixed with 2 Tablespoons buttermilk to brush on top of loaf.DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cup softened margarine. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine 2 Tablespoons melted butter with 2 Tablespoons buttermilk; brush loaf with this mixture. Use a sharp knife to cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Check for doneness after 30 minutes. You may continue to brush the loaf with the butter-buttermilk mixture while it bakes.Interesting note: John Gallagher, former administrator of Pasco County, is widely known for his family recipe for Irish Soda Bread. He would make the bread to bring it to the office during this time of year for his staff to enjoy.Baking Irish soda bread for St. Paddys Day

People will begin arriving around 10 a.m. The covered dish dinner will begin at high noon. The homecoming will continue until the last person stops talking and goes home, Black says. The community appreciates the willingness of Charlotte and her son, Frank, to host the gathering. Bring your familys old Trilby photos and stories, a lawn chair, a covered dish and be ready to share a good visit with us, Black says. Black is looking forward to the reunion. In his announcement, he notes: My three favorite days of the year (in alphabetical order): Christmas, Thanksgiving and the Trilby Homecoming Picnic reunion! If you have any questions, feel free to call him at (352) 523-5772.Trilbys 12th annual Picnic While the journey through grief is a singular experience for those who have suffered a loss, there are tools that can help, said Tiffany Kring, a bereavement counselor at Gulfside Hospice. One approach uses the power of the written word to work through the grieving process, said Kring, who will be leading a free workshop called Journaling Through Grief. The session is scheduled for March 23 at 2 p.m., at the Gulfside Center for Hospice Care in Zephyrhills, at 5760 Dean Dairy Road. It is open to the public, but the session is limited to 10 participants, so the seats will be given, based on the order of those signing up. Generally, its about a oneto two-hour workshop. Its using some different writing and journaling techniques to help process thoughts, feelings and things associated with the grieving process, Kring said. Its especially helpful for people who have a hard time verbalizing, or sharing feelings, said Kring, who has been a counselor for about 25 years and has used writing as one of her counseling tools throughout her career. I think its a very effective tool, she said. A lot of people dont realize how beneficial it really is. Some exercises involve free-flow writing, others are more structured, such as asking participants to do some writing based on a writing prompt, or writing about a specific topic, she explained.Theres something about the writing process that frees thoughts and feelings, she said.Sometimes when they just sit down with pen and paper theyll find that it helps to release whats going on, she said. Even if they are in counseling for it (grief) or have friends, or someone, theyre talking to, its still a good way to get those things out, especially because its something people can use when theyre alone, or in those late-night hours when they get up, Kring said. Kring said if more than 10 people call in to sign up, shell keep a list of those she cant accommodate, and shell reach out to them when she has her next Journaling through Grief workshop. The deadline for signing up is March 17. Those interested should call Kring at (727) 247-7510. Writing to help process grief FILE

Commissioners discussed how they would conduct the interview process at their March 7 meeting. The five candidates are scheduled to go on a tour of the county and have a private meet-and-greet on March 13. The public interviews of the five candidates will begin March 14 at 8:15 a.m., at the Pasco County Commission meeting room in New Port Richey. The five candidates are: Daniel F. Biles, deputy county manager of Jefferson County, Alabama, located in Birmingham. Biles has 10 years of experience in engineering, including work on stormwater issues. He also has a military background and has family living in Florida. Mark A. Cunningham, assistant county administrator in Sarasota County. He previously served as executive director of planning and development in Denton Texas; and, as director of land development in Polk County. David M. Ross, the first county administrator of Rock Island County, Illinois, which formed its government in 2015. He is a former police officer. Theodore L. Voorhees, the former city manager of Fayetteville, North Carolina. He is credited with bringing a minor league baseball team to the city. Dale M. Walker, the 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. After commissioners hold the public interviews, they individually will hold one-on-one sessions with the candidates. When they finish that, they are expected to reconvene and decide on three finalists. Public interviews of the finalists are planned for March 15, beginning at 8:15 a.m., at the Historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City. Commissioners have the option of choosing an administrator from the three finalists, or opting not to. Obviously, this is one of the most important decisions we will make, said Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore said, during the commissions March 7 meeting. Whoever wins the job will replace Baker, who has held the post since 2013, following a lengthy career on the countys staff. The five candidates being considered were selected from a list of 11 candidates recommended by the Chicago-based recruitment firm of GovHR USA. Most of these administrator selection activities probably will be completed, or at least underway, by the time The Laker/Lutz News readers receive their newspaper. The newspaper publishes weekly and is distributed to readers on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.Pasco eyeing administrator finalists Chef wows at food festival COURTESY OF THE LEYTHAM GROUP

The new technology offers emergency medical services and hospital teams the tools to work together to help improve clinical and operational efficiencies.The hospitals use of the system has the goal of reducing time to treatment, known as door-to-balloon time (D2B), for patients in east Pasco County that experience a dangerous type of heart attack known as STEMI (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction).The data system is designed to connect EMS teams and hospital personnel with emergent patient data, and to help increase workflow so that a patient can receive treatment as quickly as possible. The system enables paramedics in the field to alert hospital care teams and provide them with critical patient data so as to quickly identify STEMI patients, determine where to route them for care, and have staff prepared before the patient arrives. Bayfront Health Dade City reported the first activation of the new system resulted in a 12-minute D2B.CLERK HONORED BY LIFELINKHillsborough Clerk of the Circuit Court Pat Collier Frank was honored by LifeLink Foundation for her instrumental role in groundbreaking improvements to the organ and tissues donation system in Florida. Franks efforts paved the way for the partnership between Florida organ and tissue recovery programs and the Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, where a majority of people choose to register as donors today. A plaque bearing Franks image is now on the Wall of Inspiration at LifeLink Foundation headquarters in Tampa, alongside other pioneers in organ transplantation.ROBOTIC ARM ASSISTED SURGERIESFlorida Hospital Wesley Chapel now offers Strykers Mako Robotic Arm assisted partial knee and total hip replacement procedures.

All the schools also had a kiwi fruit taste test during the week.STUDENTS HELP PET HOSPITALStudents at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School wanted to do something useful with the schools new 3-D printers, so they approached a pet hospital and asked how to help. After weeks of planning and design, the students visited BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa with models and other devices fabricated on the printers for possible use in the hospital. Some of the devices the students made included: plastic models of cat and dog skulls, which can be helpful as visual aids so veterinarians can explain medical procedures to pet owners a small container that can be attached to an anesthesia machine as a handy way to hold items that will be needed during procedures small plastic wedges, which can help make sure dogs or cats are in the correct position when undergoing X-rays. Students who collaborated on the project are members of Bishop McLaughlins STREAM Club, which stands for science, technology, religion, art and mathematics.The students raised money to buy the schools 3-D printers and then looked for projects to build and benefit the community.Another area the students are working on is printing prosthetic hands for children in need.CHRISTIAN SCHOOL INFO MEETINGTampa Christian Community School, at First United Methodist Church of Lutz, 960 W.

the same general numerical place (during regionals), thats still an improvement, Fain said. Club president Albert Xing, a senior, hopes his fellow teammates are more comfortable this time around. I think were...just trying to get a grasp of states, Xing said. Were probably going to try to get more (medal) placings. Historically, weve gotten about two, three medals at states per year, and theyre usually third place or second place. The club also has a more ambitious challenge on its mind: unseat Boca Raton Community High School the winner of the state tournament every year since 2011. Our goal is to knock them down, Faint said. Theyre like a powerhouse, Xing added. During Science Olympiad, students engage in hands-on, interactive, inquiry-based activities that are lab-based, research-based, or pre-built. There are 23 different events, with subjects ranging from physics, chemistry, earth space science, biology and engineering. Various events are rotated out and substituted every few years. The activities are all team-based, and at least two students work together on each event. Throughout the competition, students are required to complete a designated activity within a 50-minute window. Teams are then evaluated by judges, who determine how well students complete the task based on the rules described for each event. Its kind of like golf, where the lower score is better, Xing explained. Typically, any particular student will compete in three to four events during the day. Xing, for example, will mainly focus on the Wind Power, Ecology and Dynamic Planet categories. Unlike other science competitions, Science Olympiad requires students to go beyond reporting about a science project, they must actually apply science. Xing said the competition calls for applying the knowledge that students gain in the classroom. We may cover things like kinematics and trajectory, but realistically we never do anything like that inside of school, Xing explained. And then, doing these build events, we are basically applying what we learned at school to something that we can compete with. For others, like sophomore Armen Brotgandel, Science Olympiads provides an opportunity to learn about additional disciplines, such as astronomy. I think its just wanting to be able to do subjects that are usually not taught in school, Brotgandel said. There arent really any courses here on astronomy, but we get to go and study it with friends, and then you get to test your knowledge. Science Olympiad was created in 1983 by Dr. Gerard J. Putz and Jack Cairn, as an alternative to traditional science fairs and single-discipline tournaments. After successful trial Science Olympiads in Michigan and Delaware, the competition began to grow. Now, Science Olympiad has members in all 50 states, totaling more than 12,000 actively participating schools, with participants ranging from seniors to kindergarten students.Besides testing science knowledge, the competition also provides an outlet for students to connect, outside of the classroom. Between events, well have fun, Brotgandel said. Well play some sports, and just get to be with a bunch of friends.

While the county may be making progress toward obtaining the permit, opponents of the road say construction of the road should not be about political pressure from letters and executive orders. They (federal agencies) are supposed to do their job, Colson said. His group and others will file a lawsuit, if the permit is granted, Colson said. The county initially submitted its application for Ridge Road in 1998. The road dead-ends at Moon Lake Road in New Port Richey. The extension would provide a link to U.S. 41, with a connection to Suncoast Parkway in Land O Lakes. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reviews permit applications to determine if projects meet regulations within the Clean Water Act. If approved, projects should do a minimum of damage to the environment. About 58 acres of the 6,000-acre Serenova Preserve are under review. The land was set aside years ago to mitigate about 200 acres of wetlands lost due to construction of the Suncoast parkway. An elevated road design to limit environmental damage is among potential alternatives for how the road extension would be built. Over the years, environmental groups, such as the Sierra Club and Audubon Society, have opposed the Ridge Road project, saying it would destroy wildlife habitat and degrade water quality. Pasco commissioners hired Washington D.C. consultants with Dawson & Associates in 2016 to lobby for the permit. The county is paying the firm about $28,000 a month. The costs expended on the project so far, including land acquisitions and consultants, is about $19 million.PERMIT, from page 1 Land O Lakes Honorary Mayor. She wants to win the race so she can make more people aware of the GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club, a volunteer organization involved in countless community causes and events.Heim was there with her sidekick, Gloria Dale, who has been named the deputy honorary mayor of Land O Lakes for life. The two ladies were selling I love Land O Lakes buttons and chances for prizes, to help raise money for Heims campaign. Tim Clayton Sr., and his son, Tim Clayton Jr., were there working the Knight Pest Control booth. The presence of a life-size replica of a knight in shining armor helped draw attention to their booth. We go to all of the chamber events, said Tim Clayton Sr., whose company is a member of Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, and has offices in Pasco, Hernando and Pinellas counties. He was particularly pleased that the event featured a car show, in addition to the music and vendors. There are a couple of Teslas over there, he said. Theyre beautiful cars. There were scores of other businesses and organizations with booths at the event. Lowes Home Improvement had a booth and so did Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Seal Swim School was there, and so was Connerton. The Laker/Lutz News had a booth, too. Organizers estimate attendance at about 1,000. Admission was free, except for reserved seating at the concert. Parking was $10. Gainer said the experience was definitely a learning process for us (event organizers), but it will help us with the planning of our future events. Overall, we believe it was a success, and we can continue to build from this. We understand that it takes time to grow an event such as this, and we intend to see it become a signature event that the Land O Lakes community can look forward to annually, he said.MUSIC, from page 1 COURTESY OF SUZANNE BEAUCHAINEShalyah Fearing, a performer whose familiar to fans of the television program The Voice, performed at the second annual Land O Lakes Music Festival on March 11.

Seahawks coach Denise Garcia won her second consecutive SAC East Girls Weightlifting Coach of the Year Award, and 10 of her lifters were named to the 20162017 SAC East All-Conference team, announced on March 6. A mix of youth and experience, Sunlake won all of their Eastside Conference meets, placed second at the Class 2A Regionals and had three top-10 finishers at the state finals. The season also saw a few milestones for the girls program, including its first 400pound lifter. Senior Micaiah Long set that mark at the 2017 Class 2A state meet, with a 215-pound bench press and a 185-pound clean-andjerk, placing third in the unlimited division. The previous school record was a 385pound total, set in the 2015-2016 season by Brianna Anderson, who won a state title in the 183-pound division. Long, a first-year lifter in the Sunlake program, added a combined 65 pounds to her lifts since the first meet of the season. Her strategy? More lifting. I just worked hard, Long said. I went in and worked out more, got extra reps in. She started at 335 (pounds), and she improved with her work ethic, Garcia said. She put so much into it. She had the passion to do it, she had a goal she set for herself, and she was going to do it. Garcia, too, credits Long for being coachable throughout the season. She listens and takes everything I tell her, the coach said. Shes like a sponge. In the meantime, Long wont soon forget the weightlifting experience. It was exciting. I accomplished my goals, said Long, whos also on the Sunlake track and field team. I was shy, and I think it brought my personality out. The 400-pound feat wasnt the only Sunlake record shattered during the season, however. In the 101-pound class, senior Shelby Lewis set a school and conference record with a 130-pound clean-and-jerk; she later finished ninth in the state meet. Without Lewis and Long, Garcias 10th season could prove more challenging, as the Seahawks also lose two other state qualifiers in seniors Hailey Parks (sixth place in 183pound division) and Caroline Winstead (19th in 139-pound division.) For Garcia, its no matter. With five non-seniors representing Sunlake on the All-Conference list, the Seahawks coach isnt concerned about a possible rebuilding-type year for the 20172018 season. Instead, she relishes the task. I coach whos in front of me, Garcia said. My job is to give them the confidence, to show them the skills, and then we go from there. I have confidence in my girls, she added. One lifter to watch out for next season, Garcia said, is freshman Antoinette Farmer.

Wesley Chapel High product Erik Thomas, a 6-foot-5 senior forward at the University of New Orleans, helped the Privateers punch a ticket to the Big Dance after downing Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in overtime, 68-65, on March 11 in the Southland Conference Championship game. The Privateers now face Mount St. Marys (19-15) on March 14 at 5:30 p.m., in Dayton, Ohio. The game will be broadcast on truTV. The automatic bid marks the schools first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 1996. "It's a blessing," Thomas said, in a postgame media conference. We played so tough and wanted it so bad. It's a big story for us to tell 10, 20 years from now that we can tell our family that we went dancing. We went to the NCAA Tournament. Not many people can say that. Thomas, the Southland Conference Player of the Year, was also named SLC Tournament MVP after posting a doubledouble with 14 points and 11 rebounds to go with a team-best three assists. In the conference tourney, Thomas averaged 16.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. New Orleans, meanwhile, finished the regular season 18-11, thanks to Thomas breakout season. Thomas played in all 29 games, leading the Privateers in scoring (19.7 points per game), rebounding (7.9 per game) and shooting (60.3 field goal percentage). He also led the team with 208 field goals, 152 free throws, and 44 steals and a 60.3 field goal percentage. Among all Division I men's basketball players, Thomas sits 19th in field goal percentage, 44th in scoring average, 53rd in offensive rebounds per game, 121st in total rebounds per game, 143rd in steals per game and 213th in defensive rebounds per game. In a statement, New Orleans head coach Mark Slessinger complimented Thomas effort and impact to the program. Erik has worked so hard since he's gotten here, Slessinger said. He's had very defined individual goals that have always been within the team framework and our team concept. I'm so proud of how much work he's put into it. Between him, the staff and how hard our staff worked with him and his development, he's a self-made player. But, the credit really goes to him and how hard he's worked. A four-year letterman at Wesley Chapel under coach Doug Greseth, Thomas remains the schools all-time leading scorer and rebounder with 2,138 points and 1,203 rebounds, respectively. In his senior prep season, Thomas was named Class 5A Player of the Year after averaging a state-best 32.7 points per game and 16.3 rebounds per game. Moreover, he helped lead the Wildcats to a combined 74-38 overall record, a 37-17 mark in district play and berths in the playoffs each year, including identical 24-5 marks with District 8-5A titles his last two years. Despite the production and showy statistics, Thomas was relatively overlooked as a Division I prospect out of high school. He opted to play two seasons in junior collegeEast Georgia State College and Baton Rouge Community Collegebefore transferring to New Orleans his junior season. Thomas is the younger brother of Sthefany Thomas, who scored a Pasco County girls record 2,563 points while playing at Wesley Chapel. He is also the son of James Thomas, who was a forward for two seasons for the Atlanta Hawks.Former Wesley Chapel hoops star in NCAA Tournament COURTESY OF DENISE GARCIA COURTESY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW ORLEANS FILE batting .643 with one home run and seven RBIs. The Wildcats stand at 5-2, their best start in school history.NEW FHSAA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR NAMEDThe Florida High School Athletic Associations (FHSAA) Board of Directors has approved George Tomyn as its next executive director. A contract is expected to be presented to the Board on May 1. From 2012-2016, Tomyn served as the Superintendent of Marion County Schools. The Ocala resident previously spent seven years as the executive director of School Development and Evaluation for the Marion County School District. In all, Tomyn has 36 years of administrative experience in the Marion County Public School system; he holds a masters degree in educational leadership from the University of Florida. Mr. Tomyns energy and passion shined through, and we are elated about this selection, FHSAA President Mark Marsala said, in a statement. It was a tight decision, but the right decision was made. Tomyn was selected over Louisiana High School Athletic Association Executive Director Eddie Bonine and Indian River Public Schools Educational Consultant Dr. Peggy Jones, who also interviewed for the position.After an agreement is reached, Tomyn will replace current FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing, who is retiring after nearly nine years. As a former student-athlete, coach and principal within the FHSAA, I am thrilled to take on this new challenge, Tomyn said. I am humbled to be part of the FHSAAs rich history, and look forward to working with the FHSAAs Board and staff to ensure a smooth transition into this exciting new role.

Info: Call (813) 972-8529, or visit beer is your thing, a visit to Yuengling Brewery is well worth your time. Free guided tours provide the history behind the nations oldest American-owned brewery, as visitors stroll along, seeing how beer is made and bottled. And, of course, at the end of the tour, those who are legally permitted to quaff a brew will get a chance to sample various brands of Yuengling. One recent weekday morning, a dozen or so gathered at the brewerys gift shop to take the tour. Most were tourists from out of town, but a few locals rounded out the group. A group of friends from Iowa came for a national softball tournament in Tampa. But, they took advantage of the time they had, while waiting for their flights to go home. Its interesting, said Iowa resident Kent Juergens. I like trying different beers. Diana Martinez and William Lopez were on vacation from Miami. Its pretty amazing how they make beer, Lopez said. Its nice to know they take pride in their beer. For the Yuengling family, brewing beer is a family legacy dating back five generations. Brewer G.D. Yuengling was a young immigrant from Germany when he opened the Eagle Brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, in 1829. In 1873, the brewery changed its name to Yuengling & Son. The brewerys headquarters and operations remain in Pottsville to this day. The brewery building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Yuengling brewery has been in constant production since 1829. Not even Prohibition could shut it down. The company produced near beer, with alcohol content low enough to pass inspection. Yuengling also began making ice cream. On the day Prohibition was repealed in 1933, Yuengling sent a truckload of a specially brewed Winner Beer to President Franklin D. Roosevelt at The White House. Richard L. Yuengling, the current president of the company, is known as a hands-on boss who arrives at work at 4:30 a.m. He has four daughters, Wendy, Jennifer, Debbie and Sheryl. One or more of them likely will take over the company. The business isnt inherited. Each succeeding generation of Yuenglings has to buy the brewery from the retiring generation. But, whoever steps in for the sixth generation will make history as the first woman to run Yuengling. It was a Christmas gift to their father that brought Yuengling brewery to Tampa. Yuengling always wanted to play baseball with professionals. He got a vacation of a lifetime at the Philadelphia Phillies Phantasy Baseball Camp in Clearwater. Amid the hustle of shagging baseballs and cracking bats, Yuengling heard a rumor that Stroh had its brewery on the market. To everyones surprise in Pottsville, Yuengling returned home with plans to start up brewing operations in Tampa. The brew-Youll probably like how this tour endsery is one of three operated by Yuengling and the only one outside of Pennsylvania. The facility bought by Yuengling has changed hands several times since it was built by Schlitz in 1958. It later was sold to Stroh, then to Pabst, and back again to Stroh before Yuengling took over. The flagship brand is its Traditional Lager, but other choices include a porter, a black and tan, and an India Pale Ale. By volume, Yuengling is the largest American-owned brewer of craft beers, even besting the Boston Beer Company that produces Sam Adams beers. Yuengling is sold in 19 states, primarily in the northeast and southeast. In recent years, as the micro-brewery world of craft beer has captivated beer lovers, Yuengling has adapted. Craft brewing has kept us on our toes, Fletcher said. Seasonal beers, including a summer wheat, have been added to Yuenglings craft beer roster. Riverview resident Dylan Bredengerd and his friend, Gary Recktenwald, of Augusta, Georgia, are both Yuengling enthusiasts. Although it is mass produced, Bredengerd said, Its craft beer quality.
