Instead of going to their bank, law office, hospital or real estate company or dozens of other businesses these men and women showed up at Hungry Harrys Family Bar-B-Que on a recent sunny and clear Wednesday morning. They were there to honor Harry Wright and his son-in-law, Chad Hudson, for their restaurants longstanding contributions to community life in Land O Lakes. Members of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerces community affairs committee presented a sign declaring Hungry Harrys as The Heart of Pasco. Hungry Harrys has been actively involved in the community and has given back to the community in countless ways, Mary Lynn Gorsline said, as she read from a letter explaining why the restaurant was singled out for the honor. Sandy Graves, also on the committee, presented a plaque to Wright and Hudson. After the formalities, those attending huddled around Wright and Hudson for a group photo, and then the two men posed with individuals and groups who wanted a picture to mark the occasion. Wright said the recognition wasnt necessary, but he was obviously pleased. Just being part of the community is enough acknowledgement for me. To have this many business people acknowledge me, is really good, Wright said. Hes also happy that his son-in-law, who runs the operations now, has kept up the restaurants tradition of giving back to the community. Hungry Harrys, at 3116 Land O Lakes Blvd., has a long history in Land O Lakes. When the restaurant opened, 33 years ago, it was a very lean operation. Just Wright, his wife, Sherry, and one employee handled all of the chores. Over time, Hungry Harrys has become a mainstay at charitable events in the community.When Larry Marlewski flies his Mooney M201 out of Tampa Executive Airport, hes often on a mission.Hes one of 650 volunteers who makes sure that Angel Flight Southeast passengers get the care they need. The pilots transport patients who have rare or complicated medical conditions and who have to travel hundreds of miles to and from their medical appointments.Marlewski, like the other volunteers, donates his plane, fuel and time to transport those patients in need. The Lutz man, along with Dr. Donna Shannon of St. Petersburg and Warren Cheatham of New Port Richey, are being recognized as Pilot of the Year Honorees for the Central Florida West Region. The recognitions will come on April 7 at the Dr. Franklin G. Norris Pilot Awards Gala, at the River Ranch Resort Airport in River Ranch. Pilot of the Year is the highest honor awarded for Angel Flight Southeast pilots, according to a news release, announcing Marlewskis selection. Marlewski, who is retired, said providing the flights is his way of paying back. We, who have been blessed, are able to offer our service, he said. Here in the Southeast, Angel Flight has flown thousands of passengers to and from medical facilities throughout the Southeast, he said, noting the missions can be flown not only in Florida, but also in Georgia, Alabama and other states. The organization has chapters nationwide, he added. We, here in Tampa, of course, are fortunate enough to have the Moffitt Cancer Center, so we get a fair amount of traffic going into and out of Moffitt, Marlewski said. Recently, he flew a cancer patient who needed a ride from Tampa back home to Panama City. Marlewski learned to fly a long time ago, but set it aside for many years. After he took it back it up, he decided to get involved with Angel Flight. The Angel Flight missions are close to his heart because he lost his first wife to cancer, and he also has friends who have suffered from the disease, he said. Plus, he noted, making these flights is a good way to keep his Mooney up in the air. I enjoy flying, Marlewski said.

The Pasco Alliance of Community Associations will host a panel of experts from Pasco County Government at an open Q & A,Thursday, April 13th, 7pm Land OLakes Community Center 5501 Land OLakes Blvd. Participating will be representatives from the Sheriffs Dept., Code Compliance and County Fire and Rescue. PACA is a community education organization serving the needs of HOA, Condo, and CDD communities in Pasco County. A history of crashes, including two fatalities in 2016, is prompting changes to a median on U.S. 41, at Leonard Road. The Florida Department of Transportation will close the existing full median opening and replace it with a directional median opening. The median modification project is scheduled for completion by the end of April, according to FDOT representatives. Motorists heading east on Leonard Road no longer will be able to turn left onto U.S. 41. Motorists traveling north on U.S. 41, however, will be able to make a left turn at Leonard Road. During the project, there will be intermittent lane closures from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The state transportation departments data shows an increase in angle crashes, from three in 2013 to five in 2015 and five in 2016. Some accidents resulted in minor injuries, but in 2013 two serious injury accidents occurred. Angle crashes occur when drivers leave the lane they are in and collide with another vehicle or roadside obstruction. In April 2016, a motorcyclist died in a collision with an SUV. The driver of the SUV drove east on Leonard Road. There is a stop sign at Leonard where it meets U.S. 41 at a T intersection. The SUV driver turned north onto U.S. 41 from Leonard and into the path of the motorcyclist that was traveling down the highway, according to media reports.The season of summer camps is just around the corner. That means parents are facing a daunting task of sifting through dozens of options to settle on the summer camps that work best for them and their children. This year, Family-Friendly Tampa Bay is launching its first Family-Friendly Camp Expo on April 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The free event will be at Florida Hospital Center Ice, at 3173 Cypress Ridge Blvd., in Wesley Chapel. The complex is visible from Interstate 75, at the interchange for State Road 56, east of the Tampa Premium Outlets. Families can meet one-on-one with Tampa Bay camp directors and staff members. Event-goers will have the chance to review a range of choices, including sports camps, day camps, STEM camps, special needs/autism camps, art camps, performing arts and academic camps. I realized there wasnt anything like this in Pasco, said Miriam Cook, a Pasco County parent who founded Family-Friendly Tampa Bay in 2014. The website, at, provides current information on affordable events, discount coupons and special deals for area families. The first 250 families at the expo will receive goody bags. Attendees also will get a printed list of available summer camps. This list will include expo participants, as well as summer camps that are unable to send staff members to the expo, Cook said. The Easter Bunny also will hop through the expo, giving away candy and posing for free pictures. Families get the added bonus of exploring the new Florida Hospital Center Ice. The complex, which opened in January, is the largest hockey complex in the southeast. Expo attendees will receive a Buy One Get One free skate offer from Florida Hospital Center Ice. In addition, there will be educational workshops, a parent-pamper section, health and wellness resources, live entertainment, a kids fun zone, and mini-sports clinics. Families can also enter to win free weeks of camp when they register online. The hunt for summer camps is a yearly ritual that isnt easy to decipher, Cook said. Its so hard. Theres so many. But, when parents can meet with the people who run the camps and ask questions, they can find the right fit for their children and their budgets, Cook said.

This year, it runs from April 10 to April 18. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. Following the rituals of Passover allows the Jewish community to relive and experience the freedom of their ancestors. Observances: Passover is divided into two parts. The first two days, April 10 and April 11, and the last two days, April 17 and April 18, are full-fledged holidays. Candles are lit at night and feasts (Seders) are enjoyed the first two days. The middle four days are referred to as chol hamoed, or semi-festive intermediate days. Seders: The highlight of Passover is the Seder, which is observed on each of the first two nights of the holiday. The Seder is a 15step, family-oriented tradition and ritual-packed feast. THE FOCAL POINTS OF THE SEDER INCLUDE: Eating matzah, or unleavened bread Eating bitter herbs to commemorate the bitter slavery endured by the Israelites Drinking four cups of wine or grape juice to celebrate the newfound freedom The recitation of the Haggadah, a liturgy that describes the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The Haggadah is the fulfillment of the biblical obligation to recount the story of the Exodus on the night of Passover.SYMBOLIC SEDER FOODS: Marorbitter herbs, usually horseradish, to serve as a reminder of the bitterness of slavery Saltwatersymbolizing the tears of the slaves Charosetsweet paste made of fruit and nuts, symbolizing the mortar the slaves used to build the Egyptian pyramids Zeroahshank bone, representing the Passover sacrifice Beitzahhard-boiled egg, symbolic of life and birth associated with the spring season Karpas a leafy green vegetable, usually a piece of lettuce, symbolizing hope and redemption Some traditional Ashkenazi Passover dishes include gefilte fish, matzah ball soup, brisket, tzimmis (sweet carrot and fruit dish), and macaroons and sponge cake (made from matzah meal) for dessert. Expanded Menu for Passover: In November 2015, the Conservative Jewish movements Committee on Jewish Law and Standards issued a ruling allowing the consumption of kitniyot (legumes) during Passover. For thousands of years, Ashkenazi Jews have followed the tradition of not eating kitniyot on Passover. (The custom was not adopted by most Sephardi Jews.) Kitniyot includes beans, corn, rice, millet, peas, soybeans, peanuts, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, mustard and sometimes garlic.

We typically see each other just two or three times a year, because Karen lives in my home state of Minnesota and I live in Florida more than 1,300 miles away. While theres a great distance between us, Karen and I have always been close. We share many common interests traveling, gardening, dogs, cooking, outdoor activities, history and our faith. We have often talked of spending more time together when we retire. Just a few years ago, we began seeing more of each other after Karen and her husband, John, starting wintering outside Thomasville, Georgia. They wanted to get away from Minnesotas snow and cold, and they needed a warm climate where they could train their dogs to compete in AKC Retriever Hunt Tests. Thomasville, which is just north of Tallahassee, is a four-hour drive from my home in Land O Lakes making it close enough for weekend visits. The rest of the year, Karen is back in Minnesota. She has a fulfilling and happy life there with John, their sons, three grandchildren and, of course, their beautiful dogs. As we all know, though, unexpected things can happen that turn your life upside down. In my sisters case, that happened three years ago when she began having trouble with her vision and spatial awareness. When she was dressing, for example, she often put her tops on backwards. When she drove, she found it increasingly difficult to stay inside the proper lane and would sometimes drift onto the shoulder. Karen assumed that a change in her vision was causing the problems. So, she had her eyes examined and bought the best pair of lenses available. The new glasses didnt help, and Karens vision problems persisted. So, she went to another eye doctor for a second opinion. The second optometrist told her the new glasses were right on the mark, and couldn't explain why she was still having trouble with her sight. Karens visual spatial and perception problems grew worse, and they became apparent to her husband and other family members. In October, she saw her family physician and told her about these problems. The doctor referred Karen to a neurologist. After a series of test to rule out everything from cancer to blood disorders, she underwent a CAT scan. She was diagnosed in 2015 with Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA), described as a variant of Alzheimers and also known as Benson's syndrome. The disease causes shrinkage of the back part of the brain, causing a decline in vision. The disease usually affects people at an earlier age than typical Alzheimer's cases, with initial symptoms often experienced in people in their mid-50s or early 60s. Karen was 56 when she was diagnosed. Most cases of Alzheimers disease occur in people age 65 or older. She was very surprised to learn that her vision was not the source of her problems after all. Because her disability was getting worse, shortly after her diagnosis she gave up driving and resigned from her position as a registered nurse. The disease is a progressive disease. Early symptoms include difficulty writing, blurred vision, light sensitivity, and problems with depth perception and navigating through space. Additional symptoms include apraxia, a disorder of movement planning; alexia, an impaired ability to read; and, visual agnosia, an object recognition disorder. Some studies have found that about 5 percent of all Alzheimers cases are diagnosed with PCA. Like all Alzheimers diseases, there is no cure for PCA. Medications are available to slow down the degeneration of the brain tissue, and studies show that such drugs can give Karen and other PCA patients 10 years or longer to live. Instead of being distraught with her terminal diagnosis, Karen is excited about life. Shes grateful her disease is progressive. She tells me it gives her great peace to be able to plan for the future, knowing how much longer she has to live. Since her diagnosis, John and Karen have done many things that they had planned to do someday. But now, they do these things today. It is the rest of the family that worries and mourns about whats ahead for Karen and John. We marvel at how positive this couple of 33 years is about their future, and admire their attitude of why wait let's do it today. Its a philosophy we all should adopt whether its estate planning and completing your will, buying new carpet and furniture, traveling to someplace youve always wanted to visit or reading Moby Dick. Its an attitude of living every day as if it was your last, and making sure the people you care about know how much you love them. When I asked Karen about writing this column, she wanted to make sure I reported that PCA often goes undiagnosed for years, because many eye doctors are not aware of the disease. Most people diagnosed with PCA first go to their optometrist because they believe they needed stronger glasses. When new glasses or contacts dont eliminate their visual problems, they often visit other eye doctors who often are unfamiliar with the symptoms of PCA. If a PCA patient sees a neurologist sooner, it can be diagnosed and treated earlier, with the potential of slowing down the disease, and saving themselves and their family years of stress and anxiety. So, next time you see your eye doctor, please ask him or her if he or she is aware of PCA, and if not, to please research the disease to understand how to respond if a patient complains about problems with driving, penmanship and spatial awareness. Do this for yourself and those you care about. And, do it for me, and my sister, Karen. COURTESY OF DIANE KORTUS PUBLISH E RS NOT E The amazing attitude of my sister, Karen

JC Audiology & Hearing AidsIn the North Fork Professional Center (across from Walmart) in Lutz Could homestead exemption be $75,000? COURTESY OF PATRICIA SERIO Womans club helping to bless the children The GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club welcomed Karen Hubbard, founder of Bless the Children, and speaker Rebecca Smith.This organization is dedicated to the support and education of impoverished children and families in Central American countries, and has built schools, outfitted a hospital and regularly ships donated goods to the poorest of communities in those countries.Bless the Children also has uplifted families incomes by purchasing their Tapestry of Love handcrafted jewelry made of natural stones and organic materials, and marketing these pieces at various venues.Madeline McCulloh (left), chair of the Womans Clubs International Outreach project, presented Karen Hubbard and Rebecca Smith with a donation check. By Kathy SteeleA proposed constitutional amendment to increase homestead exemptions to $75,000 could be a boon for homeowners, but a bust for local governments that stand to lose millions in property tax revenues. If approved, homeowners potentially could add another $25,000, excluding school taxes, to the current $50,000 homestead exemption. At least 60 percent of voters statewide would have to approve the increase in a 2018 referendum. The Senate Community Affairs Committee, headed by State Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, recently approved the amendment. Senate subcommittees also must weigh in. A similar amendment proposal is anticipated in the Florida House of Representatives. Estimates peg the loss to Pasco Countys revenues at nearly $1.4 million annually. More than 60,000 parcels would be removed from the tax rolls, said Ralph Lair, Pasco Countys government affairs officer. Its nice to give people the exemption, but how far do you want to go? Lair said. The proposal to increase the homestead exemption was one of the issues that Lair covered, as he gave an update on 2017 legislative issues to the Pasco County Commission at its March 28 meeting. Lair said the revenue losses in some small counties could be so severe that theyre not going to have a budget to work with. Counties, including Pasco, already are struggling to find revenues to pay for basic services, said Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. Instead of trying to keep our parks and libraries open, well be shuttering them, Starkey said. The Florida League of Cities and the Florida Association of Counties oppose the increase. Legislators also are considering a bill that would stop local governments from approving new regulations for businesses, professionals and occupations, Lair said. Any regulations passed after Jan. 1 would be null and void. If approved, the new law would affect local control of licenses issued to such establishments as liquor stores and bingo halls. Lair said the bill is broadly written and counties also could lose the ability generally to approve ordinances that impose fees. Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore said there was push-back on that bill. He didnt anticipate it being approved. Another bill is backed by utility companies that want to place cell towers of 60 feet or shorter in rights of way without consulting with local governments first. AT&T is pushing this, Lair said. If they see they can get this, theyll go further. State Rep. Richard Corcoran of Land O Lakes, who is the Speaker of the House, is pushing a House bill to phase out community redevelopment agencies, or CRAs. If approved, the bill would eliminate all existing agencies on their current expiration date or by Sept. 30, 2037, whichever is earlier. Meanwhile, no new community redevelopment agencies would be permitted after July 1. Also, existing agencies would be barred from starting any new projects or programs effective Oct. 1. A similar Senate bill also is in play. Both bills also include ethics training for commissioners of CRAs. Community redevelopment areas are established as special tax districts. Oversight is provided by a redevelopment agency, whose members often are chosen from elected officials within the district. Each year a portion of property tax revenues collected by counties are reinvested into community projects within those districts. There are rules and limitations on how the money can be spent, but generally the purpose is to end blight and poverty. The tough stance on CRAs appears to have started with long-standing accusations of mismanagement of the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency in Miami-Dade County. But, the proposed legislation would cover all CRAs in the state. Zephyrhills, Dade City, New Port Richey and Port Richey all have CRAs. At their March 28 meeting, county commissioners had concerns about overly broad interpretations of how CRA money can be spent. Their focus was on what they deemed questionable expenditures within CRAs in New Port Richey and Port Richey. Pasco is seeking to schedule workshops in the future to discuss the matter. No one from the CRAs was in attendance to respond. The legislature concludes on May 5, with a budget that then goes to Gov. Rick Scott and his veto pen. State Sen. Tom Lee Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey Speaker of the House Richard Corcoran

When volunteers for Coastal Cleanup finish cleaning up, for instance, theyre rewarded with a meal supplied by Hungry Harrys. That tradition dates more than 20 years. Wright estimates the restaurant has been involved in 5,000 fundraisers. At the 30-year mark Hungry Harrys had given away about 250,000 meals, he said. Like most businesses, Hungry Harrys has had its successes and setbacks. At one point, when a portion of the restaurants property was taken by eminent domain to widen U.S. 41 also known as Land O Lakes Boulevard Hungry Harrys was closed for eight months. At another point, Wright was knocked out of commission by a heart attack. When the recession hit, it wiped out nearly all of the restaurants commercial catering and dealt a serious blow to its walk-in trade, Wright said. But, the family has stuck together, and through hard work, it has weathered the storms, Wright said. It now has a thriving catering service for weddings, which Hudson developed, which catered more than 400 weddings last year, Wright said. Opening a barbecue restaurant was never part of a grand plan, Wright said. I was running the worlds largest service center and tire store in Tampa. My boss wouldnt pay me my $11,800 bonus, he said. So, he turned in his two-week notice. He and Sherry had five kids at the time. She was really concerned and upset. She said, Well, what are you gonna do? Wright had an idea. He had been working near a barbecue joint that enjoyed an excellent reputation. Wright thought he could do better. I said, Honey, if this guy around the corner can be the best in Tampa Bay, I can cook barbecue better than that. I cooked barbecue for our wedding. She said, You stupid fool. Ive never worked in a restaurant, and we dont have any money. Twenty-four days later, we opened, Wright said. Now, Wright and his wife are partners with their daughter, Stacey and their son-inlaw, Chad. My son-in-law is an unreal businessman, Wright said. Things are far more systematic than they were when Wright ran things. We had no recipe books, when he came. He said, Starting tomorrow, everything you do for the next year, youve got to write it down. Id tear off box tops, and Id write down, Mashed potatoes for 600. Hudson took the recipes and converted them into spread sheets, with step-by-step instructions. At its inception, the restaurant was named Hungry Harrys Famous Bar-B-Que. Who decided it was famous? Wright asked, rhetorically? I did, he answered, with a laugh. Now, that the restaurants ownership is in the familys second generation, the company refers to itself as Hungry Harrys Family Bar-B-Que. Initially, the restaurant operated out of a former barbecue joint called Rib Junction. It had been closed for two years and its lot was choked with weeds. Its dining room had 130 seats and stretched out to what is now the middle of the highway. To help fill those seats, Wright went to church many churches, actually. He would tell the pastors: You pick a night that works for me, and Ill feed every man, woman, (and) child a complete dinner, with everything including dessert, for $2. The church dinners often would draw 300 to 350 people, and roughly 150 of them would end up at Hungry Harrys for a meal within a week. Wright said he has always been his own man. I did what I wanted to do. I fought the county, when I wanted to fight the county. I fought for causes, he said. The American flag that covers the restaurants roof is proof positive of that. Eight days after 911, the flag was started to be prepped and painted. I was so upset at that time, he said, and he wanted to do something. So, we painted it. Sometime after that, Pasco County came to warn me that I was in violation of the sign code. I informed them I didnt want to be warned. I told them I wanted to be cited. Theyd have to take me out of here in handcuffs, feet cuffs (ankle cuffs). I had people in the armed forces who said they would sit up on the roof. So, they (county regulators) decided just to leave it alone, he said. Wright is a big believer in Land O Lakes, and in supporting local businesses. We have six kids. We had five when we came. The sixth was born almost in the restaurant. We have 14 grandkids, 11 of them in Land O Lakes, so Im pretty well vested in the community, Wright said. He appreciates the relationships and friendships hes formed through the years, with local business owners and local organizations. I dont think I had anything but relationships in business when I came here. That was all that kept me in business, Wright said. While he appreciates the chambers recognition, its not something he sought after, he said. I have never been a person who needed to be acknowledged. I got the satisfaction from what wed done. Ive never done anything unless Ive wanted to, and thats a real freedom, he said. Now, hes working on a book he plans to call Everybody knows everything about life, and barbecue. His favorite sentence so far is this: Two days after everybody agrees on religion and politics two days after that, theyll agree on barbecue. In looking back, Wright said, I dont think I was a very good businessman. But, that doesnt seem to bother him. I probably could have been a whole lot more successful monetarily, but I couldnt have been a whole lot more satisfied, Wright said. b h basedonthe e voStore hours: Mon Fr i Service Areas: Pasco C o Cha pel, Carrollwo o h ome i mp r s wner ideathathomeo Our business is e ment. ro ce f our sour w T V ounty 8:30am 4:00 pm Sat and y, Brandon, Va a l r ico, Ta am o d, Riverv ie w, Land O Lake s is y ojects orprf ON LABOR VE $25 AV Sun by apt only m pa, Mango,Wesley s Odessa,Tr inity SA Y c o a r e q s b WELLHELP c r af t s m a n e d rk o of the w vide a o a n d p r e asonable p ied ho m q uali f e e shouldhav A RETILEB AT THROOM based on the WELL HELP Y OU ACCO M NO MATTER HOW SMA L er $250 vo ojects or pr fON LABOR VE $50 er $100 vo ojects or pr AV our y med b or d perf arranty itten w ear wr a one y ther go a step fur e We ice. r ofessionals at a m e repair pr enient access to v con y, s wner idea that homeo easy .com a mpa B ay Ta 6 00 | REP ING C KSPLASHES A IRS EXTERIOR D S V ICE MAINTENANCE, PA AIRS AND TUNE UPS.

Like other Florida high schools, the Cypress Creek Coyotes are set to begin spring football practices on April 24. But, the circumstances for this team are unique — particularly for new head coach Mike Johnson and prospective athletes. The program faces logistical hurdles because Cypress Creek Middle High, which will pull students from both Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass high schools, is still under construction, off Old Pasco Road. Current freshman and sophomores zoned for the school will be permitted to participate in spring football drills. But, those practices will be at Weightman Middle School, while Cypress Creek’s athletic fields remain under construction. The weight room at the new school — measuring 2,273 square feet — likewise isn’t complete. Football equipment and protective gear hasn’t arrived, either. Also, Johnson is the only paid high school football coach on staff. The six assistant positions have not yet been filled. Cypress Creek Middle High, located 8701 Old Pasco Road, will have nearly 1,500 students in grades six through 11 next year. That means no seniors in its inaugural football season. Still, Cypress Creek’s new football coach sees an “exciting opportunity” for the upstart program, he said. “I think it’s an absolutely great opportunity — walking into something where you get to put your mark on it,” Johnson said. “These kids have every opportunity to do what they want with it; they can make it what they want.” Johnson, currently a physical education teacher at Taylor Elementary, will serve as a graduate enhancement teacher at Cypress Creek during the 2017-2018 school year. An Illinois native, Johnson moved to Florida in 2010. He most recently coached at Stuart Middle School, where the team went undefeated in his lone season. He previously had a two-year stint as an offensive line coach at Wesley Chapel High school, under former head coach Ben Alford; Alford stepped down in 2012 after going 11-19 in three seasons. During a meet-and-greet at Wesley Chapel High School on March 28, Johnson provided program updates, while fielding football-related questions from parents and players. Johnson’s message was optimistic: “The sky’s the limit,” he said. Throughout the meeting, Johnson outlined pillars for the new team, along with his expectations for football families. Academics, he said, will be a major emphasis. So, too, is winning games and helping players reach “the next level.” “We want to set high standards,” said Johnson, a former defensive back at Division III Eureka College in Illinois. “I’ve got to have students-athletes that want to work hard every day, and want to come to practice every day.” Moreover, he said the program’s foundation will conform to the “5C’s”— Commitment, Consistency, Courage, Communication and Compassion. “We will definitely develop an atmosphere, that everyone will be proud of,” he said. Regarding offensive and defensive schemes, Johnson was relatively vague, but noted he’ll gear the Coyotes playbook towards the strengths of his eventual roster and coaching staff. “We’ll figure that out when (the players) get out there. You’ve got to be versatile to what you have,” he said. That includes taking suggestions from players, through his “open-door” policy. “I want the kids to be able to come in and talk to me. I don’t want it to be where a player is afraid to come talk to me,” Johnson explained. He added: “I want the kids to have some say in their program, how they want to start it, and how they want to build it, so they’ll be proud of it when they graduate.” One thing he won’t do, however, is “play favorites.” “The whole playing favorites thing is out the window. I’m going to put the best 11 on the field, and we’re going to play football,” he said. Cypress Creek varsity football will be designated for Class 4A for at least its first two years, according to Tim Light, the school’s assistant principal. The team’s 2017 schedule was put together by Matt Wicks, the county’s athletic director, Light said. A “patchwork” slate, it features teams that struggled in 2016 (Gulf and Pasco high schools), along with some perennial powerhouses (Tampa Catholic and Sunlake). In September, the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) passed a new system that bases football postseason berths on a points system in Class A-4A. The new format, beginning this season, is designed to reward teams for winning records and strength of schedule. In the FHSAA’s biggest four classes (5A8A), the district champion still automatically qualifies for regionals, with the remaining 16 spots decided by points. While Cypress Creek Middle High won’t have seniors on its inaugural football team, Johnson said the school will “mold these (younger) kids into the leaders that we want them to be. “It’s just a really good opportunity to get down to very basic stuff and get them to learn that, and not skip over anything,” he said. Another parent meeting is expected prior to the start of spring practice.

Johnson, who was hired in January, is tasked with starting the schools football program from scratch. For the second straight year, the PascoHernando State College cheer team finished fourth in the Cheer Ltd. Nationals at CANAM in the small coed collegiate division. The competition was March 17, at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Two years ago, in 2015, the team finished fifth in the event. “I am extremely proud of the team’s hard work this season,” head coach Sophia Fluellen said, in a statement. “Despite a few mistakes during the competition, they pulled through and took home the fourth place national trophy.” She added: “It takes a tremendous amount of dedication for these student athletes to work for seven months to perform a 2minute routine.” The college’s cheer team captured the state championship title on Feb. 11 in the College Co-Ed Level 6 division at the Florida State Fair, for the fifth time in seven years.For information about the PHSC cheer team, visit COURTESY OF PASCO-HERNANDO STATE COLLEGEThe 2016-2017 PHSC cheer teamLOCAL COMMITMENTSRandy Haynes Jr., a senior free safety at Wharton High School, has committed to play football at Ohio Wesleyan University, a Division III school in Delaware, Ohio. A two-way player, the 5-foot-10, 185pound athlete also played quarterback, running back and slot back throughout his Wildcats career. Dylan Hohenthaner, a senior kicker/punter at Land O’ Lakes High, has committed to play football at Indiana State University, a Division I FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) school in Terre Haute, Indiana. Last season, Hohenthaner averaged 38.2 yards per punt (42 punts) and kicked four field goals, including a long of 46 yards. With Hohenthaner’s commitment, Indiana State features two players from our coverage area on its 2017 roster. Zephyrhills High alum Devin Brockington, a senior cornerback, joined the team in 2016 after transferring from Ellsworth Community College, in Iowa.SOFTBALL PITCHER HAS SECOND NO-HITTER THIS YEARMariah Melendez, a junior softball pitcher at Sunake High, fired her second complete game, no-hit shutout of the year, in a 10-0 win over Northeast High on March 28.

Her last no-hitter came on Feb. 15, in a 10-0 win over Clearwater High. Also a standout position player, Melendez is batting .447 with 12 RBIs and 20 runs scored.

Together, the Tampa YMCA and First Coast YMCA leveraged a friendly competition to inspire community members to become more physically active and adopt healthier lifestyles. Besides participating at their neighborhood YMCA, community members were able to join the competition from other locations via social media.

Cypress Creek football presents ‘great opportunity’ COURTESY OF PASCO-HERNANDO STATE COLLEGEBrooke GonzalezPHSC FOUNDATION ESTABLISHES SOFTBALL FUNDThe Pasco-Hernando State College Foundation has established a softball fund in memory of former student-athlete Brooke Gonzalez, who died after being struck by a car last April. The Brooke Gonzalez Softball Fund, created after an initial donation from her family, will provide resources to support the women’s softball program at PHSC. Gonzalez, who was 19 at the time, was reportedly returning to her apartment when she was struck by a car that drove onto a sidewalk along State Road 52. Gonzalez, of Citra, Florida, was a key member of the 2016 PHSC softball squad, batting .415 with two home runs, 20 RBIs and 13 runs scored. She was also an honors student, set to graduate in May 2016 with a 3.5 GPA. Contributions to the fund may be made through the PHSC Foundation office at COURTESY OF SAINT LEO UNIVERSITYAnnie LindstromSWIMMER NAMED SSC FRESHMAN OF THE YEARFollowing an impressive debut season, Saint Leo swimmer Annie Lindstrom has been named the Sunshine State Conference (SSC) Freshman of the Year. The Kristianstad, Sweden native became the second Saint Leo women’s swimmer to earn Freshman of the Year honors. (Nicole Weber was named Freshman of the Year in 2014.) Individually, Lindstrom qualified for the NCAA Division II championships in the 50 Free, 100 Fly and 100 Free during the 201617 season after finishing in the top four in all three events at the SSC Championship. At nationals, she finished 16th in the 50 Free, 23rd in the 100 Free, and 27th in the 100 Fly. In relays, Lindstrom was a part of four Saint Leo school records, including the Lions’ 200 Medley Relay that finished Top-8 at the national championship meet.

Its called Super Saturday, and its an annual fundraiser for Lutz Softball, a recreational fast-pitch league for girls ages 5 through 18. On April 1, several hundred softball families gathered to cheer on more than 20 teams, soaking in the daylong festivities at the Oscar Cooler Youth Sports Complex. Besides a full slate of softball matchups, there was plenty to keep attendees amused, from family friendly games and activities, to numerous vendors and countless raffles. This is probably the biggest Super Saturday weve ever held, said Mike Cook, president of Lutz Softball Inc. Every year, its gotten bigger and bigger and bigger, added event coordinator Jennifer Bommarito. This is quite a bit bigger than it started out to be. Held each spring, Super Saturday is one of the leagues two major fundraisers. The other is Fall Festival, in October. Amid softball rivalries and competition, Super Saturday gives young athletes a chance to unwind. This is actually like a fun day for them, Bommarito said, where they actually get to goof all a little bit...and not have to be so serious. Mike Bosworth, who has coached in the league since 2013, said the annual shindig also helps foster positive interactions among families. People are...competitive with one another, and when you do an event like this, it gets you to know other people, and it softens those relationships on the field, he explained. Other parents agreed. I think it brings us closer, said parentcoach Rainey Rosenberger. Its just fun to get families together from the community, parent Natalie Brown added. Another parent, Maggie Mixon, believes the event has nearly become a Lutz tradition. Its phenomenal just to see the community come together, in the spirit of collaboration, she said. Its just a good, oldfashioned, small-town gathering. Among the afternoons top highlights was the parents tournament and its unlike any other. A 16-inch blooper ball was used, bases were run in reverse, fathers batted with their non-dominant hand, and kids served as coaches. Its fun and confusing everythings backwards, Rosenberger said, smiling. The sports complexs ballyhooed concession stand was another draw. From biscuits and gravy during early morning games, to mushroom Swiss burgers and buffalo chicken wraps, theres never a shortage of tasty grub offerings. Bosworth, whose wife, Alissa, is the concessions manager, said parents from other youth leagues Brandon, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel cant say enough about the ballparks spreads.The parents are always like, You guys have got the best concession stand weve ever seen, anywhere, Bosworth said.Super Saturday, meanwhile, couldnt have come at a better FRED BELLET Super Saturday offers a swingin good timetime for the softball organization. On March 8, two suspects burglarized the Oscar Cooler Sports Complex during early morning hours, causing losses in excess of $5,000. That (robbery) threw us for a loop tremendously, Mike Cook said. In wake of the incident, the league has received overwhelming community support, with donations from the likes of Home Depot, Walgreens, Lowes and Ford. Over $1,920 has also been raised, via a GoFundMe page. Lutz Softball, formerly known as the Lutz Leaguerettes, also has seen quite a transition since January 2016, when the organization announced it was offering a recreational fast-pitch league for the first time in its 37year history. Just six months later, its slow-pitch leagues were discontinued because of dwindling registration and an overwhelming preference for fast-pitch. The fast-pitch league now claims to have about 200 participants, the highest figure in several years. Lutz Softball Inc., is a PONY (Protect Our Nations Youth) Softball affiliate.
