By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhen Van Dyke Church began in 1985, it met in the cafeteria at Claywell Elementary School in Northdale, and the church was named for its planned future location, on Van Dyke Road in Lutz. It never did build on Van Dyke Road, though, because the land was taken through eminent domain for the Veterans Expressway project, said Matthew Hartsfield, the church’s pastor. Instead, the church was established at 17030 Lakeshore Road, where it remains today. So, in a sense, it never was accurately named. When the church felt a calling to expand its role, it also decided to change its name to Bay Hope to reflect its new vision and mission. Bay Hope wants to be involved in reaching out to people throughout the Tampa Bay area, to offer them a church home, Hartsfield said. But, it isn’t trying to attract all of those new disciples to its Lutz location.

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comDaniel F. Biles has agreed to contract terms to become Pasco County’s next administrator. The final step to hiring Biles is expected on March 28, when the Pasco County Commission will vote on Biles’ contract. All five commissioners ranked Biles as their top choice on March 14, after a day of public and private interviews with the candidate. Commissioners also authorized the board’s chairman, Mike Moore, to negotiate a contract with Biles. Biles has signed off on the offer sheet, Moore said. The new administrator will receive an annual salary of $220,000, under terms of the contract offer, Moore said. Biles now works as deputy county manager in Jefferson County, Alabama, located in Birmingham. Moore is delighted that Biles has accepted the offer. “I’m definitely excited about it,” Moore said. “He’s going to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our area, at a time when we are seeing a lot of great things happening in the county.” Pasco is growing in both population and economic development, Moore noted. The chairman also expects Biles to play an instrumental role when it comes to infrastructure and stormwater projects because of the knowledge that Biles has developed through his previous experiences. Biles will replace County Administrator Michele Baker, who is retiring. She has been in the role since 2013, following a lengthy career with the county. In addition to his work in Jefferson County, Biles served in the military and worked in private business. Biles was among a list of 11 candidates recommended by the Chicago-based recruitment firm of GovHR USA. Commissioners decided to interview five of those candidates. Both Moore and Commissioner Mike Wells said Biles stood out, among a pool of top-notch candidates. Both were impressed by the combination of skills and experiences that Biles brings to the role.Pasco, administrator agree to termsBy Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comLand O’ Lakes residents can soon step aboard buses on a special circular route through the community. By May 22, Pasco County expects to begin the new route. A tentative ribbon cutting will be on May 18 at a bus stop at the Land O’ Lakes Community Center, at 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. The first buses would roll a few days later. The announcement came at a March 9 board meeting of the Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization in Dade City. Previously, county officials had hoped to begin the route in March. “This is going to be another win for Pasco County,” said Kevin Hoyt, the county’s transportation operations manager. “We are all extremely excited.”The route will move north on U.S. 41 with bus stops that include the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, the Land O’ Lakes Community Center, the post office, Land O’ Lakes High School and the detention center. A loop eastward along State Road 54 will have stops at Collier Commons and the Land O’ Lakes Branch Library. There also will be a stop at the Target Super Store on North Dale Mabry Highway, where riders can transfer to buses operated by the Hillsborough County Area Regional Transit system, known as HART. The Land O’ Lakes circulator route is one of three the county put on its 2017 list of capital improvement projects. Estimated costs for the circulator route were about $300,000 a year for operations, and a one-time purchase of a bus at a cost of about $110,000. Two other routes along State Road 54 and in the Moon Lake area of New Port Richey already are operating.Land O’ Lakes buses to roll out in May COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTYA Land O’ Lakes circulator bus route is scheduled to begin by May 22.

The new location is scheduled to open the week of April 3. Besides the Fort Myers location and the new site in Central Pasco, Fords Garage has restaurants in Cape Coral, Estero and Brandon, as well. Our entire team has been working hard to prepare for this expansion, Marc Brown, managing partner, said in a news release. We are excited to introduce our innovative and entertaining dining experience to new friends in Wesley Chapel and its surrounding areas, he added. Fords Garage is a tribute to the legendary Henry Ford. The original Fords Garage is in Historic Downtown Fort Myers, just minutes from Henry Fords winter estate. Fords Garage combines the look of a 1920s service station with the feel of a modern-day prime burger and craft beer joint, the news release says. Its menu includes a variety of burgers all served on a Brioche or European pretzel bun. It also serves comfort dishes, such as Chicken Henry and the Pulled Pork Mac N Cheese. We pride ourselves in having a relentless drive for quality in our food, drink, atmosphere and customer service, Brown says. The new location is at 25526 Sierra Center Blvd., directly across from the Tampa Premium Outlets. The Fords Garage brand is officially licensed by the Ford Motor Company. Fords Garage, operated and managed by 23 Restaurant Services, is planning to add locations in Westchase, Countryside, St. Petersburg and Lakeland, in Florida. It also is planning new locations in Dearborn, Michigan and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Larkin’s reputation for being a tough character outlasted his lifetime. Known as “The Meanest Man in Pasco County,” some people still recall that moniker applied to the Dade City man, nearly a half century after his death in 1973. Larkin reinforced that image by keeping a single-shot .22 rifle in the gun rack of his truck — a statement that often left a lasting impression with young cowboys. “Someone once wrote a letter to him, but they didn’t know his address,” said Bobby Tesar, recalling Larkin’s legendary reputation. “So, they addressed the letter to “The Meanest Man in Pasco County”—and he got the letter!” But, Larkin is known around Pasco County for much more than being considered a man with a difficult disposition. During his lifetime, he was a cattleman and lawyer, a member of the Pasco County School Board and the chairman of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. He established the first Santa Gertrudis herd in Florida in the early 1940s. “He gave the first bull “Rex” water and hay while penned in his side yard on Church Avenue,” said Ray Battle, who is Larkin’s cousin. Larkin transported Rex from Texas, in a trailer he pulled with his own car. Larkin’s neighbors soon would learn all about Rex and about Pancho, a 6-foot tall sire brought to Dade City from the world-famous King Ranch in south Texas. That ranch, founded in 1853, now stretches into six Texas counties, encompassing 825,000 acres. The Larkins made frequent trips to King Ranch, to expand their cattle herd in Pasco County. In 1940, the United States Department of Agriculture recognized what Larkin already knew: Santa Gertrudis was a distinctive beef breed, adaptable to most climates. “A Santa Gertrudis female can remain in production well past her 12th birthday and may stay in the breeding herd as long as 18 years,” reports the current Santa Gertrudis Breeders International website. Gaining additional calves over other cattlemen in Pasco County was perhaps a key reason that Larkin began searching for more land. Another primary reason was the success of his law practice that he operated along with his brother, E. B. Larkin. Larkin’s law practice enabled him to begin extensive land buying, including acreage along the Withlacoochee and Hillsborough rivers, Battle said. “He also had his eye on some rich land north of Dade City, which he got from 41 different property owners,” Battle added. With hundreds of acres along County Road 35-A (Old Lakeland Highway) and the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, Larkin would complain that the exit to his ranch was blocked whenever the train was parked there for long periods of time. At breakfast one morning at the Crest Restaurant, Larkin told Charles Edwards that the train had pulled away that day with nearly half of the cars left behind. “He said that he disconnected them!” Edwards recalled. “I asked him about it a few months later, and he said they hadn’t parked there again,” Edwards added. Larkin used the railroad to his advantage when unloading large bulldozers at the depot to help begin constructing levees on that rich land north of Dade City. Draining the swampy marshes with high hammocks into improved pasture “required a dragline and expensive labor,” Battle explained. Larkin also brought seven pumps with 28-inch propellers from South Florida to discharge water into what became the Duck Lake Canal. The canal remains a major drainage system, along with the Larkin Canal, for the greater Dade City area and that rich land still known as “The Little Everglades Ranch.” Larkin was responsible for drafting the fence law for the Florida Legislature, and because of its 1949 passage, Florida remains a ''closed range'' state — making cattle drives through the state’s towns and cities a thing of the past. To abide by the ruling and to keep cattle on his own land, Larkin fenced 15,000 acres, stretching from north Dade City to south of the Polk County line. So in addition to his reputation for being difficult, Larkin was known for quite a few accomplishments. Plus, not everyone believed he was mean. Kitty Register Fisher recalls the time when her father was in the hospital and her mother had just lost a baby. “We were getting really low on food, and Mr. Larkin showed up with food to help us. “To my family he was a good man,” Fisher said. Could it be — that beneath that tough exterior — William M. Larkin, of Dade City, was actually a nice guy? Doug Sanders has a penchant for unearthing interesting stories about local history. His sleuthing skills have been developed through his experiences in newspaper and government work.

Larkin COURTESY OF DOUG SANDERSPurchased in 1924, the Larkin home on Church Avenue was originally built as a three-room cottage in 1884. It was part of a 10-acre spread that was later platted as one of the first subdivisions in Dade City. Knowing Your HistoryBy Doug SandersSpecial to The Laker/Lutz News

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comConnerton is hosting three events to give people a chance to write a few words of encouragement and inspiration for retired U.S. Army Sgt. David Roca and his family, who will be receiving a mortgagefree home from Connerton, Lennar and Operation Finally Home. Roca sustained several traumatic brain injuries in combat during his deployment to Iraq. One of those injuries occurred when an improvised explosive device hit his vehicle. Roca and his three children were surprised on a windy, chilly March morning when they found out they would be moving into a home in Connerton, a 4,800-acre mixed-used, master-planned community in central Pasco County. Roca and his children, Alex, Amelie and David Jr., will be moving into a 2,065-squarefoot, four-bedroom home, being built by Lennar Homes. The family is expected to move in on April 30. Those who would like to extend their congratulations and well wishes will have a chance to write them on the home’s studs before the dry wall is installed, said Joan Stout, a Connerton marketing consultant. Those signings will take place at the home site, 8743 Savory Walk Drive in Connerton, on April 1, April 2 and April 8, from noon to 3 p.m. Those unable to come during those times should visit Club Connerton, at 21100 Fountain Garden Way, where they can sign a heart. Those hearts will be stapled to the framing of the home, Stout said. The Roca family will be able to read the notes, as they do a walk-through of the home before the drywall is installed. That walk-through is expected on April 9. Grey Street Studios Inc., also will do a video tour to capture the notes of love so that the family will have a permanent remembrance of the wishes extended to them from the community. This is the sixth home Lennar has provided to military families around the country, and the first in the Tampa Bay market. Based in Texas, Operation Finally Home has provided more than 150 mortgage-free homes for veterans during the past 10 years.

Its clear that Dr. Davis really does connect with her patients, which would explain her fiercely loyal following. Your goal is her teams goal. More specifically, their aim is to assist patients with setting and reaching their own individual health-related outcomes. Each patient comes from a different background, has a different set of circumstances, and a different goal or goals. One is no more valid than another, said Dr. Davis. This kind of approach is especially important in the management of chronic diseases like diabetes. Once a persons goals are set, the team designs plans of treatment, management and education for that individual.

O O N N E E M M O O R R E E T T I I M M E E ! ! T T I I M M E E ! ! JC Audiology & Hearing AidsIn the North Fork Professional Center (across from Walmart) in Lutz Are you really healthy? That was the main question posed by fitness professional Casio Jones, during a recent Community Awareness Series event, presented by PascoHernando State College. Jones is the wellness director for Florida Hospital Zephyrhills CREATION Health and Wellness Center, at 38233 Daughtery Road. Jones held an educational and interactive discussion on March 14 at PHSCs East campus in Dade City. There, he spoke to a classroom filled with students, faculty and members of the community. Upbeat and energetic, Jones offered up a Cliff Notes version for maintaining health, and presented several pillars for living life to its fullest. Jones, who holds a masters in health administration challenged the members of the audience to match their health efforts with their financial efforts. He probed: All that money in your bank account how does that benefit you when youre in a hospital bed, or just are not feeling good? Good or poor health, he said, all comes down to lifestyle choices. Its simple. The choices that we make can affect our ability to exist with, or without, a chronic disease, Jones explained. The health and fitness professional cited a statistic by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), claiming 90 percent of the 10 leading causes of death are due to poor lifestyle choices. He added his own blunt assessment: I think thats our biggest threat to our nation. Moreover, 1.4 million Americans die each year from a combination of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and stroke, according to the CDC. For Jones, the staggering figures strike close to his heart. Several relatives, including his mother and brother, suffer from Type 2 diabetes. I refuse to have diabetes, Jones said. I make different choices in my life, because I know theres a (family) flaw. He warned poor choices unhealthy food and drinks, lack of exercise, smoking can contribute to bad consequences over time.We have to have a new mindset, Jones said, that what Im doing today can affect tomorrow. He advised the crowd to refrain from refined sugar, alcohol and processed foods. Those products, Jones said, destroy your body. Moderation can be deceiving, he explained. A little bit adds up. Jones, too, suggested keeping meat intake under 10 percent of all food consumption, surprising many in the audience. He said animal products, especially those high in saturated fat, should instead be substituted with plant-based foods. Your body needs clean, whole nutrients, he explained. If you dont have the energy to exercise, it has a lot to do with how you eat. Your body needs fuel the right fuel.Besides offering several dietary parameters, Jones presentation also centered on exercise and ways to get more of it. Setting achievable goals is a good way to start, he said. His suggestions include using the stairs more often, parking far away from various shopping destinations and taking daily evening strolls with a friend. Small changes can equal big results. Finding an enjoyable activity or sport is yet another simple way to be more physically active, Jones said. Find excuses to move, he said. Discover something you enjoy doing. Jones talk also included the need to maintain emotional and mental well-being. Adequate rest, getting outdoors each day and an overall optimistic attitude goes a long way toward relieving tension and stress, he said. Focus on the good things, he said, and dont pay attention to the small, negative things. Since 2011, Jones was instrumental in overseeing the development of the new Florida Hospital Zephyrhills CREATION Health Wellness Center, which opened last February. The 13,000-square-foot, 24-hour fitness facility offers various group classes, healthy living seminars and a wellness spa. Since the grand opening more than a year ago, the facilitys membership has grown from 465 members to over 2,050 members, Jones said. We are enjoying the impact we are making in our community, he said. Its just a safe environment for people to come and learn.

Moore also appreciated the way Biles conducted himself throughout the interview process. Biles appeared to be relaxed and engaged, Moore said. I watched how he interacted with folks, during the meet-and-greet period, Moore said. He just felt at home, to me, talking to people. Something else that stood out is that his spouse flew down with him, too. His spouse came to the meet-and-greet. She sat with him, while he was interacting with others. She also came and sat in the public interviews that we did, as a group, too, Moore said. Obviously, you really take it serious if you make that decision to bring your spouse down, Moore said. That fact didnt escape Wells notice, either, and it left a positive impression. Wells said Biles obviously had done his homework and, he said, Biles clearly values the importance of customer service. Moore also noted: When I had my private interview with him, too, going one on one, he was very comfortable during that conversation. I never felt once that he was trying to oversell me. Besides being factual, he (Biles) was bringing great ideas to the table, Moore said. After commissioners offered Biles the job, Moore said he was chatting with him, and Biles mentioned that todays technology will enable him to be out and about in the county, while remaining accessible. Moore thinks thats important. When youre a leader like that, your team needs to see you, and the community needs to see you, Moore said. 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 11A 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 It doesnt feel called to create a megachurch in Lutz, or on another campus. Hartsfield said. Instead, he said, We felt God impress upon our hearts that we needed to multiply well beyond this campus. So, Bay Hope wants to help to revive churches that are faltering, to reopen those that have closed and to plant new ones in areas experiencing population growth, Hartsfield said. The goal is to mobilize 30,000 disciples of Jesus Christ in Tampa Bay, by the year 2030, for the transformation of the world, Hartsfield said. First though, Bay Hope wants to maximize the use of its current property in Lutz. It expects to have a groundbreaking this summer for a $6 million project. Weve been working with our architect to renovate the campus to primarily create whole new, innovative spaces for childrens and student ministries, he said. The spaces will be bright and airy, he said. The goal is to make the campus a lot more functional for families with children and teenagers, Hartsfield said. The project also includes additional children and nursery space, as well, and a larger, relocated coffee house. Its basically a campus refresh, Hartsfield said. While making those improvements, Bay Hope is also making plans to extend its reach into other communities. We felt God calling us to multiply campuses of Bay Hope Church, across Tampa Bay, to reach every neighborhood with a vital, local congregation of Bay Hope Church, Hartsfield said. There are two primary ways that will happen, he said. One approach calls for reviving faltering churches or reopening churches that have closed. There are churches across the Tampa Bay area that have a great legacy, but just due to some natural church lifecycles, they no longer have the resources, they no longer have the people, so theyre either in decline, or theyve already closed, he said. A good number of them will already be United Methodist Churches, so were working with the Florida Conference on their strategy to reach every neighborhood. Well partner with the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church to re-birth these legacy churches, Hartsfield said. The other approach calls for setting up new Bay Hope campuses in storefronts, schools, movie theaters or other locations, to provide a church home for people in growing communities. Some of these might be smaller, more targeted campuses in a small neighborhood. Some of them might be larger and more regionally connecting, Hartsfield said. We want to be very open to the wind of the spirit, in terms of every geographic location in Tampa Bay, from urban to suburban to rural and to ethnically diverse campuses, he added. Bay Hope defines Tampa Bay as being Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties. Those counties are projected to have a total population of 3 million by 2030, and the goal is engage at least 1 percent of that number, or 30,000, as disciples of Christ, within that time frame, Hartsfield said. In one sense, Bay Hopes quest is in keeping with how the United Methodist Church took root. Our Wesleyan Methodist heritage is a basically multi-site heritage, from back in the circuit-riding days of John Wesley, Hartsfield said. Bay Hopes initiative comes at a time when national reports reveal a continuing slide in membership rates among traditional congregational churches. Hartsfield is not dissuaded. We dont have a single discouraged or pessimistic bone in our body about connecting people to Jesus. We are wildly optimistic about bringing the hope of Jesus to Tampa Bay, Hartsfield said.

Garcia, who’s coached at Sunlake High in multiple stints (2007-2008, 2013-2017), was recently crowned Sunshine Athletic Conference (SAC) East Cheer Coach of the Year, for the second consecutive year. It, too, marks the second straight year one of Garcia’s cheerleaders — senior Mallory Mock — was awarded SAC East Cheerleader of the Year. (In 2016, then-senior Amanda Slozer won the honor.) Moreover, eight of Garcia’s cheerleaders from this season were selected to the SAC East AllConference teams, the most of any east Pasco school. One of the premier cheerleading coaches in the area, Garcia maintained a successful track record at Sunlake — four consecutive state appearances — by instilling discipline, consistency and purpose. She also maintained the quality of cheerleaders she would select for her varsity squad. She, too, is regarded for her diligent preparation. “I like to do things way ahead of time,” Garcia said, “so that there’s no surprises.” Other coaching stops during her 15-year career included Academy at the Lakes, Hudson, Mitchell, Land O’ Lakes and Wiregrass Ranch high schools. Yet, some of her most impressive accomplishments occurred during her tenure at Sunlake. In the 2013-2014 season, she led the Seahawks to a state title in the Class 1A Medium Division. Sunlake’s inaugural 2007-2008 season was memorable, too. Under her tutelage, a group consisting of six freshman and no seniors advanced to states, finishing seventh out of 24 teams. “I had a really young team,” Garcia said, of the inaugural team. “When they announced the teams to go to finals...I was totally shocked.” Besides the competitive cheer success, Garcia will miss Friday night high school football games, along with the countless relationships she cultivates each year. Over the past few weeks, it’s been a teary-eyed farewell tour, of sorts. “It’s just very emotional,” Garcia said, “because…I love what I did and I have special (feelings) for my kids.” Garcia, too, wants to be remembered as a coach who cared for her athletes, wanting to see them improve, both on and off the floor. “She’s just an amazing coach,” Mock said. “She’s made me the person that I am today. She’s taught me strength, determination, and how to set examples.” Over the years, Garcia has remained “real close” with many of her former cheerleaders. Some of them, likewise, have made significant coaching strides. For instance, Hudson High coach Chelsea Hatcher, the 2016-2017 SAC West Cheer Coach of the Year, is one of Garcia’s former cheerleaders. So, too, is Sophia Fluellen, the head cheer coach at Pasco-Hernando State College, a program that has won five College Co-Ed Level 6 division titles in the past seven years. While there’s no indication yet who will replace Garcia, one thing’s for sure: the new coach is taking over a program with a solid foundation. “I’ve got everything all set,” she said. “We’ve got uniforms; they don’t have to really fundraise too much.” And although she’s retiring from coaching high school, Garcia’s not completely saying goodbye to the sport. Garcia will still organize private instructions, and teach lessons at Mary Jo’s Performing Arts, in Tampa. She also plans to judge at various Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) competitive cheer competitions. She said she might even publish a book on cheerleading coaching, providing tips on tryouts and formations, especially for new coaches. “I’ll miss the thought process of putting (cheerleaders) into groups and doing the brain work, because I do that constantly,” Garcia said. Mock, too, plans to stay involved with the sport, after she graduates in May. One possibility is auditioning to be a Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) staff member. Another is joining University of South Florida’s Coed Cheer Team.Going out on top COURTESY OF PENNYE GARCIAUnder Garcia, Sunlake has been one of the top cheerleading programs in Pasco County. She is the longest-standing cheerleading coach in Pasco County, at 15 years. Garcia previously coached for Academy at the Lakes, Hudson, Mitchell, Land O’ Lakes and Wiregrass Ranch high schools. Sunlake cheer coach Pennye Garcia, left, is retiring at the end of the school year. For the second consecutive year, Garcia was named SAC East Cheer Coach of the Year. Also pictured: Sunlake principal Michael Cloyd and senior Mallory Mock, who won SAC East Cheerleader of the Year. NEW SAINT LEO HEAD WOMEN’S SOCCER COACHMario Rincon, a longtime Division I assistant, has been named Saint Leo University’s new head women’s soccer. Saint Leo athletic director Francis X. Reidy announced the hiring on March 15. "We are excited to welcome Mario Rincon to our staff,” Reidy said, in a release. “His winning experience at various institutions around the country were a deciding factor as we look to continue our success in women's soccer.” Rincon spent the past five seasons at the University of Arkansas, working on the Razorbacks' touchline with head coach Colby Hale. He was a part of three NCAA tournament teams at Arkansas, including this past season when the Razorbacks set a program record 18 wins and ranked as high as No. 11 in the nation. Rincon also had coaching stints at Army, Florida Gulf Coast University, Wright State University, Baylor University, Duke University and the University of Miami. Former Saint Leo women’s soccer head coach Ged O’Connor resigned in February to accept a head coaching position at Troy University in Alabama. O’ Conner posted a 123-66-12 overall record in his decade-plus of coaching, leading the Lions to seven NCAA tournament appearances during that period. COURTESY OF SAINT LEO UNIVERSITYMario Rincon SOFTBALL ACE TOSSES ANOTHER NO-HITTERCallie Turner, a sophomore ace at Land O’ Lakes High School, tossed her fourth nohitter this season, striking out 21 batters in a 1-0 win over River Ridge High on March 16.
