Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comEmma Skantze was a 9-year-old student at Turner Elementary School when she decided she wanted to get involved to help others.After brainstorming with her mom, she came up with the idea of organizing a concert. The first event featured her and some of her friends. But now, as she prepares for the seventh annual Helping Hands benefit, she’s working out all of the details for having two concerts, at two venues. One concert features about 30 performers, ranging in age from 5 to 18. The other showcases professional musicians from across the Tampa Bay area. Besides lining up the musicians and the venues, she’s also organizing a bake sale and working on lining up food trucks, too. It’s a lot of work, but the 17-year-old said the satisfaction she derives after it is all over makes it all worthwhile. Last year, there was one event, which raised $7,200. This year, with two concerts, the fundraising goal is $15,000, said Skantze, a junior at Land O’ Lakes High School. The student concert is scheduled for April 23 at 5:30 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church, 15102 Amberly Drive in Tampa. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Those attending will be able to purchase baked goods. A couple of food trucks also are expected. Concert-goers also are encouraged to donate baby food and diapers, because the items are in great need by Metropolitan Ministries, she said. The student concert also will include a performance by Eden Shirmohammad, of Land O’ Lakes. “I want to show the younger students, especially, what they can do if they keep with their music,” Skantze said. The professional concert is scheduled for May 27 at 6 p.m. at Barness Hall, at the University of South Florida, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa. There will be a bake sale there, too, and she’s trying to line up food trucks, but is still working out what needs to be done to make that happen at USF, she said. Tickets for the professional concert are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Skantze said there’s a feeling of satisfaction that comes from staging the concerts. “Metropolitan Ministries has really expanded in the past couple years,” she said, and added, “I love being able to be a part of it.” The organization has a day care, an elementary school and a considerable amount of job training. In the beginning, organizing the event was difficult because she hadn’t done it before. Over time, she’s become more comfortable in seeking sponsors and handling the logistics. “I’m always talking to people who are older than me. But, with a lot of practice, I think my confidence has gone up, and it has gotten easier to talk to other people,” she said. “I think it’s very cool when I can find adults who take me seriously,” she added. She also noted that she doesn’t have to do everything by herself. “I have a great support team,” Skantze By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comFinding ways to celebrate Mother Earth and to recycle, upcycle and preserve its precious resources are the themes of Earth Day celebrations planned around the region. One of the largest area events planned for Earth Day, known as Earth Day Tampa Bay, got its start as EcoFest at Learning Gate Community School in Lutz. Now, in its eighth year, the event has become Tampa’s signature Earth Day event, and it has grown into a collaboration between Learning Gate, the University of South Florida Office of Student Affairs and the City of Tampa. The event is set to take place at the Lowry Park Zoo Bandshell area, at 7525 N. Boulevard, in Tampa, on April 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Thousands of people typically attend the event to learn the latest in earth-friendly practices and products, and to check out the fun activities offered for kids. The event celebrates the principles of sustainability: Ecology, Equity and Economy. This year’s sponsors are Tampa Bay Water and Tampa Electric Co. Planned highlights include a parkourFestivities set to honor Earth DaySee EARTH, page11A B.C. MANIONEmma Skantze has devoted many hours of her life to the quest of helping others through an annual benefit she organizes. Sometime there is one concert; sometimes, two. But, the goal is always the same: To raise money for people in need.Sports complex wins crucial approvalBy Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comPasco County commissioners agreed to push ahead with a proposal from RADD Sports to build a $25 million sports complex at Wiregrass Ranch. About $15 million in funding would be from a bank loan, secured with a proposed 2 percent increase in the county’s tourism tax. Nearly $11 million would come from previously pledged tourism dollars, and sales tax revenues. County commissioners unanimously voted to pursue the project, and send out bids for the bank loan at their April 12 meeting in Dade City. The sports complex, and an $18.5 million, 120-room hotel, would be built on land donated years ago by the Porter family – developers of Wiregrass Ranch and The Shops at Wiregrass. Over the past eight years, several proposals fell apart, including one for a baseball complex in 2015. RADD Sports wants to build a 98,000square-foot indoor facility for sporting and recreational activities including basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, dancing, wrestling, gymnastics, curling and badminton. In addition, there would be outdoor sports fields, an amphitheater with an event lawn, trails, pavilions and a playground. Apartments an option for Northpointe VillageBy Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comThe Northpointe Village shopping center could get a 300-unit apartment complex, on a vacant parcel with rental appeal for employees of Mettler Toledo. The Swiss-manufacturer broke ground in January on a 250,000-square-foot plant, within Northpointe. The plant is expected to bring about 500 jobs into Pasco County, with about 185 of them being new jobs for the company. Members of the Pasco County Development Review Committee recommended approval of the apartments at their March 30 meeting in New Port Richey. The matter now goes to the Pasco County commissioners for a final vote. Letters of support came from the board of directors of the North Pointe at Suncoast Crossings Owners Association, and Mettler Toledo. Mettler’s General Manager Viggo Nielsen wrote that the apartments may provide “convenient on-site housing for employees and a good mixed-use development that we hope will thrive for many years.” KATHY STEELENorthpointe Village is a walkable main street village concept with offices and shops, off State Road 54 at Suncoast Parkway.

EXP. 4/30/17 By Betsy Crisp, MS, LD/NSpecial to The Laker / Lutz NewsAs we prepare to celebrate Earth Day — on April 22 —I thought I’d share some facts about how much food the average American family wastes each year, and then focus on how we can reduce food waste. Depending on what figures you look at, the average family of four in the United States wastes from about $1,350 to $2,275 every year. When broken down by components, it turns out that fresh fruits and vegetables are the food we waste most, making up 22 percent of the food we throw away. Trying to cut down on that waste is not a new effort. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been offering advice on this topic to consumers since World War 1. One campaign poster offered these keys to making the most of our food:  Buy it with thought  Cook it with care  Serve just enough  Save what will keep  Eat what would spoil  Remember: homegrown is best  Don’t waste it These principles still hold true today. The Environmental Protection Agency also offers tips for reducing food waste on its website. My personal favorite is “Be Creative: If safe and healthy, use the edible parts of food you normally would not eat.” The EPA offers examples of using stale bread to make your own croutons and to saut beet tops for a delicious side dish. Besides avoiding waste, tips like that can help you stretch your food dollars. When it comes to vegetables, for instance, most of us only consume the most common, or best known, part of the plant. But, many vegetables have a secondary — usually lesser known and overlooked, but edible — part that I refer to as the “unusual edibles.” If you buy your produce at the grocery store, these parts of the plant often have already been removed and discarded before packaging. But, if you grow your own produce, you can easily take advantage of these lesser-known options for consumption. Although many of these secondary parts are edible, the flavor and texture may be an acquired taste. For example, there are many species of cabbage and all the leaves are edible, but the leaves of some species are too strong for most people’s liking. Edible leaves and stems of the sweet potato are eaten in many parts of the world, but some are very bitter. Since there is such a great variety of plant species, the flavors of their parts also vary greatly. Some parts need to be cooked to improve their edibility, but some leaves may be eaten fresh. Use care: Some leaves can be mildly poisonous.Here are just a few examples of the most common vegetables with edible parts that might surprise you: Besides eating the parts of the beets, carrots and radishes we are familiar with, the leaves of those plants are also edible.We generally eat the flower parts of broccoli and cauliflower, but we can also eat the stems and leaves. We commonly eat stalks of celery, but the lesser-known edible parts are the leaves and seeds. And, as watermelon comes into season, I am reminded of my personal favorite – watermelon rinds can be made into pickles (see recipe).My grandmother, like many who survived the Great Depression, did so by being “thrifty.” She was a great cook, and taught my mother and me to “waste not, want not” by saving all the vegetable scraps such as celery leaves, onion skins and so on, to make stock for soup. Soups are a great way to reduce food waste and stretch your food dollars.It’s never too early to learn how to be better consumers of Mother Nature’s bounty.At camp one summer, we taught Pasco County youth about “upcycling” and highlighted some of these principles by having a sampling of “unusual edibles” — including pickled watermelon rinds. They also learned how to plant and grow more produce from kitchen scraps, including fruit and vegetable tops and seeds. Betsy Crisp is a Professor Emeritus, UF/IFAS Extension Family & Consumer Sciences Easy-to-Make Watermelon Rind Refrigerator PicklesINGREDIENTS:4 cups water 1 tablespoon coarse/kosher salt 2 cups peeled watermelon rind, cut into 1 x 1/2 x 2 inch pieces, leaving a thin layer of pink 3/4 cups granulated sugar 1 allspice berry (whole allspice) 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 4 peppercorns 4 whole cloves 1/2 teaspoon pickling spice 1 long slice of fresh gingerroot, preferred (but 1 tsp ground ginger to a 1/2-inch piece of fresh) 1/4 teaspoon celery seedsINSTRUCTIONS: In large pot, bring water and salt to boil over medium high heat.  Add pieces of rind and boil until tender (about 5 minutes).  Place in colander to strain liquids from rinds.  Transfer rinds to a large metal bowl.  In saucepan, combine remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Simmer for 15 minutes, until slightly reduced.  Pour over watermelon rinds in bowl.  Place plate over top to keep rinds submerged in liquid.  Cover and refrigerate for one day to improve flavor.  Transfer to a glass canning jar (one quart or two pint jars) and keep sealed in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.Makes 4 cups = 1 quart / 2 pints Note: These are not processed in a boiling water bath canner and not intended to be stored on the shelf.

A life and health changing experience with massage therapy led to her new passion: operating a European-style luxury spa featuring organic and natural products. I had suffered physically from the effects of a stressful, high pressure job for years. The long hours were taking a toll on my body, as well. I had chronic back and leg pain for a long time. I tried a variety of medical treatments, but nothing really eliminated the pain, said Ms. Huston. Trying to find some relief, I visited a new massage therapist who did body work. Literally from the first session, my pain improved. Soon, the limp Id had for several years disappeared, and I was walking normally again. That dramatic change inspired her new career direction. She decided to start a spa and salon dedicated to helping clients destress, relax and look great, using all natural and organic products. Ms. Huston had visited some of the best spas in the world in her travels, and she wanted to make that experience available locally. She named the spa belle me beautiful soul in French. belle me Day Spa & Salon is housed in its own 3,300 square foot building at the back of Osprey Cove, away from traffic. Clients are transported into a different world the moment the moment they walk through the door of the areas premier day spa. The spa offers different types of massage therapy, body wraps, manicures, pedicures, facials, microdermabrasion, Photon/LED treatments, eyelash extensions, waxing services, PEMF treatments and a full-service hair salon. Packages of multiple services are available. Spa and salon services, which are available to both women and men, are performed by some of the most talented professionals in the area. All services provided by the spa use natural or organic products. People are becoming aware that many beauty products contain ingredients that are potentially harmful, said Ms. Huston. The spa also sells natural and organic products by Oway, Surface, Bella Lucc and Skin Script Rx in its retail area, so that clients can have those same products available for use at home. Another goal Ms. Huston had in opening the spa was to create a place that would be fun for group events. We love hosting groups, and we love working with our clients to plan their special events at the spa, she said. Its so rewarding to see a group of friends have a great time relaxing here. As a way of giving back to the community, belle me Day Spa & Salon also has a program called belle me Gives Back. Local charitable organizations who schedule an event with the spa that day receive half the proceeds from all services performed. All of the events held to date have been very successful. Anyone interested in scheduling a belle me Gives Back event is welcome to contact the spa for more information. 813-949-8400 belleamedayspa.com21758 SR 54, Lutz, FL 33549(Behind Suntrust off St. Rd. 54) HOURS: 9-9 MONDAY-SATURDAY 10-6 SUNDAY N N a a t t u u r r a a l l a a n n d d O O r r g g a a n n i i c c B B e e a a u u t t y y T T r r e e a a t t m m e e n n t t s s Quitting tobacco isn't easy.

ONLINE SCHEDULING A V FHPG-10230 April 19, 201711A agility course created by a participant in American Ninja Warrior, a kid-friendly Yoga Zone with classes, crafts, games and other fun activities. Costumed superheroes will be roaming around; bands will be performing, and there will be plenty of chances to pick up some pointers on sustainable living. Michele Northrup, organizer of the event, has been involved since the beginning. “It’s going to be exciting this year,” said Northrup, noting “we have over 138 vendors. “We have sustainability experts … We’ll have hybrid and electric vehicles. We have one vendor … who will demonstrate wind power,” she said. The Owl Sanctuary will be bringing the beautiful owls that it protects, Northrup said. There also will be interactive booths and chances for people to purchase everything from local honey to handmade soap to all sorts of other eco-friendly items, she said. While EcoFest is expected to draw thousands to Lowry Park, Pasco County also is hosting an Earth Day celebration. The family friendly event will take place at Crews Lake Wilderness Park, 16739 Crews Lake Drive in Spring Hill. It is scheduled for April 22, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “We’re excited that the event will actually fall on Earth Day this year,” Lottie Kelley, event chair for Earth Day, said in a release. “This year, we’re adding the Suncoast Trail Earth Day Ride and Rick’s Raptor Rescue,” she said. Other planned activities include:  Children’s crafts and education displays  An Interactive Water Ventures Learning Lab  A Florida native plants sale  Pet adoptions  A ladybug release  Upcycle vendors  An appearance by Spike, the 10-foot alligator from Croc Encounters  Household hazardous waste collection  Electronics recycling  A pill take-back program (for unwanted or expired medications) Concessions will be sold by Mary Giella Elementary School as a PTA fundraiser. Also, the University of Florida’s IFAS/Extension will offer two workshops: Rain Water Harvesting at 10 a.m., and Composting at 12:30 p.m. Preregistration is required for both workshops. Sign up online at To sign up, click on April and scroll down to event 1 of 2. For more information about the festival, contact Keep Pasco Beautiful Coordinator Kristen King at (727) 856-7252 or said. Even with experience, she said, it’s a time-consuming task. “For some reason, there’s not less time that you need to put it into. “You have to reach out to the same amount of people,” she said, estimating she’ll log 100 hours on the project by the time it is completed. Still, she is gratified by the results. “We’ve been able to grow the concert every year and raise more money,” said Skantze, who manages to balance taking four Advanced Placement classes, doing soccer and track, and managing the details of the fundraiser. “I organize my time,” she said. “I make a lot of lists. Sometimes I just have to prioritize what I think is more important.” Helping others, in this young woman’s eyes, is important. The rezoning requested by Land Investment Partners would only affect the eastern portion of a master plan for Suncoast Crossings. The development is divided into east and west sides, with separate owners of each side. Northpointe is a mixed use office and retail complex at the southeast corner of State Road 54 and Suncoast Parkway. The complex is laid out as a walkable “main street” village with shops, offices and restaurants. Renaissance Inn and Hilton Garden Inn also are on-site, as well as TRU Simulation, a manufacturer of flight simulators and a pilot training center. The Pasco Economic Development Council, which partners with the county on job creation, also has its offices in Northpointe. The western side of Suncoast Crossings includes the Suncoast shopping center, offices and residential neighborhoods. Despite efforts to market the Northpointe parcel for non-residential purposes, developers and investors showed no interest, said Clarke Hobby, a land use attorney representing Land Investment Partners. They repeatedly said the location lacked direct access and visibility to State Road 54 Hobby said, “We think multifamily makes good sense, and it is consistent with market demand. What (Northpointe) doesn’t have and what the retail village has struggled with is multifamily or higher density to get it moving.” Suncoast Parkway, at State Road 54, is attracting investment for several projects after languishing through the economic downturn. The master-planned community of Bexley North is under construction on the north side of State Road 54, across from Northpointe. Also, on the north side of the state highway, two more residential and commercial developments are planned adjacent to Bexley and the Suncoast Trail. If approved, the rezoning for Northpointe would add apartments as a use while retaining office, research and light industrial for another portion of the same site. Hobby said the focus remains on attracting office and light industrial, and creating jobs. “We’re aggressively pursuing opportunities,” he said. Future development could include about 225,000 square feet of Class A offices, as well as one or two hotels, he added. Pasco County plans to build an extension of Northpointe Village Drive as part of an incentive package of about $7.6 million for Mettler Toledo. Northpointe’s owners will contribute more than $250,000 to the project. That could be reduced by 15 percent if Pasco receives a state reimbursement of about $1.2 million for the estimated $3.2 million road project. “This is a good program,” said Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore. “Over the years, for whatever reason, commissions in the past have not moved forward. We have a great opportunity. Let’s stop kicking the can down the road.” Dirt won’t be flying any time soon, however. It will take additional votes to finalize the project, including an ordinance to increase the tourist tax. Four of five county commissioners need to approve the increase. Though the initial vote was unanimous, Pasco County Commissioners Mike Wells and Jack Mariano had concerns about linking new tourism dollars to one project. Wells would like to see boat ramps built in western Pasco in future. County officials said the bank loan possibly could be increased to $16 million or $17 million to fund those. Mariano said tax revenues should be spread around to benefit the entire county, not just focused within the Wesley Chapel area. “What’s the fairness to the other side of the county when there’s no return coming back?” he said. But, prior to voting in favor, he added, “I know this is going to be a top-shelf product.” Details are still being negotiated, but the county will receive a portion of the profits generated from the sports complex. “The entire county will benefit from this project,” Moore said. However, the project and the tax increase drew a notable objection from Thomas Dempsey, owner of Saddlebrook Resort. It makes no sense to use the tourism tax as “backup for a loan that can’t be obtained in a normal way through a bank,” saidDempsey, who spoke during public comment. “I can’t run a business that way. Nobody should. It’s a burdensome tax on Saddlebrook.” The upscale resort in Wesley Chapel contributed a large share of the $8.5 million already collected in tourist taxes. A rebate program is being proposed to compensate Saddlebrook and other hoteliers. Details will be negotiated as the project moves forward, but Wells said, “It should have been done before yesterday.” RADD Sports estimates gross revenues of $3.8 million in the first year, with increases each year after. Company officials pledged that the loan debt would be paid first before RADD Sports got paid. Research shows that the complex will have a regional pull, drawing people willing to drive four hours to eight hours, said Anthony Homer, vice president of real estate for RADD Sports. About 1.2 million people live within a 30-minute drive, he added. An estimated 30 to 40 special sporting events can be held at the complex, along with weekday activities for local amateur leagues and recreational visitors. On average, more than $208 is spent daily per person during tournament weekends for the event, as well as at hotels, shops and restaurants in the area. “We didn’t pull these numbers out of a hat,” Homer said. However, county officials said banks wouldn’t accept RADD Sports’ revenue projections as the only collateral source for the loan. Hope Allen, president of The Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce, urged commissioners to support the project. “The timing is right,” she said, during public comment. “Everybody is ready to move forward,” Allen said.EARTH, from page 1A MUSIC, from page 1A NORTHPOINTE, from page 1A COMPLEX, from page 1A Anthony Homer Mike Moore COURTESY OF SYLVIA PEREZ A coronation to benefit the blind The Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind hosted its 32nd annual Coronation Ball to raise funds to support the programs for blind babies, children and teens offered by the Lighthouse.

CYPRESS CREEK MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOLCOACH: MIKE JOHNSON (1ST YEAR) 2016 RECORD: N/AA brand-new program, Cypress Creek likely will face significant challenges in its first few seasons. The 2017 campaign, for instance, will feature no seniors, as current freshmen and sophomores zoned for the school will be pulled from both Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass Ranch high schools. Meanwhile as spring ball approaches, Mike Johnson — entering his first year as a high school head football coach — is still finalizing his assistant staff. There are other logistical hurdles, too, as the weight room and athletic fields remain under construction at the school’s campus. The Coyotes’ offensive and defensive schemes remain a mystery, though Johnson recently said he’ll gear the playbook toward the strengths of his eventual roster and coaching staff. For comparison’s sake, other recent upstart programs in Pasco County have struggled in their early stages. Sunlake High, for example, went a combined 5-25 its first three years of existence, from 2007-2009. Wiregrass Ranch, likewise, went a combined 7-23 its first three seasons, also from 20072009.LAND O’ LAKES HIGH SCHOOLCOACH: BRIAN WACHTEL (7TH YEAR) 2016 RECORD: 2-6Put simply, the Land O’ Lakes Gators have endured a rough couple years on the gridiron. Since its last winning season in 2013 (8-2), the program went 4-6, 3-7 and 2-6. The 2017 campaign won’t be easy either, as four of the team’s first five games are on the road, including slates against Wesley Chapel and Sunlake. To generate a turnaround, the Gators must find some consistency on offense — a unit that scored just eight touchdowns all year. That won’t be easy, with the team losing three of its top four receivers (Justin Kren, Hunter Carlisle, Brayden Lyman) from 2016; leading rusher Kyle Leivas (308 yards) does return, however. The departure of kicker/punter Dylan Hohenthaner (38.2 yards per punt) shouldn’t be overlooked, either. The Indiana State University signee was a valuable weapon, averaging 38.2 yards per punt. On a positive note, the Gators return rising junior linebacker Myron Bloom, one of the region’s most productive defensive players. An SAC East First-Team All-Conference selection, Bloom racked up 119 tackles and six tackles for loss. PASCO COUNTY HIGH SCHOOLCOACH: TOM MCHUGH (10TH YEAR) 2016 RECORD: 1-9The Pasco Pirates look to regroup from last year’s 1-9 debacle — the program’s worst record since 1978. While the season was troublesome all around, perhaps the toughest moment for Pirates fans to grasp was a 49-0 home loss to crosstown rival Zephyrhills. In 2015, the Pirates also experienced another setback to their nine-mile rival, losing 50-16. Lopsided defeats aside, a bounce-back season could be in store for 2017. Consider that several of Pasco’s top contributors were just sophomores last season, meaning there’s room for development and progress. Expect players like running back Jamar Hicks Jr. (386 yards rushing, three touchdowns) and receiver Jacquez Mobley (20 receptions, 200 yards) to make significant strides as juniors. Other key cogs — including linebacker Cameron Smith, and linemen Camron Craig and Cody Mercer — also return. All three were named to the 2016 SAC East All-Conference team. There’s an opportunity for early-season victories, as the Pirates play four of their first five games at home, including matchups against Ridgewood, Gulf and Cypress Creek.SUNLAKE HIGH SCHOOLCOACH: BILL BROWNING (11TH YEAR) 2016 RECORD: 7-3Entering his 11th season as head coach, Bill Browning has the Sunlake Seahawks running like a well-oiled machine, compiling seven consecutive winning seasons. However, the program could be in for a slight rebuilding year in 2017, as heavy reinforcements are needed on both sides of the ball. First off, the Seahawks must replace one of the county’s top quarterbacks in Justin Hall (1,945 yards, 13 touchdowns, eight interceptions in 2016). Other skill players will need to be groomed on offense, since the Seahawks will be without its top four contributors in Tyler Peretti (40 catches, 866 receiving yards, six TDs) Cris Galdos (666 all-purpose yards, four TDs), Ryan Clark (23 receptions, 412 yards, five TDs) and Justin Metzger (562 yards rushing, four TDs). Defensively, Sunlake will miss three of its top four tacklers, losing linebackers Izzy Aquino (67 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, five sacks) and Chris Williams (74 tackles, nine tackles for loss, three sacks), and safety Jabriri Davis (55 tackles). But, if history is any indication, new standouts may quickly emerge for the Seahawks. And, that could be sooner rather than later, considering the program’s junior varsity squad went 6-1 in 2016.WESLEY CHAPEL HIGH SCHOOLCOACH: ANTHONY EGAN (2ND YEAR) 2016 RECORD: 7-2In his first year as head coach, Anthony Egan oversaw a remarkable turnaround for Wesley Chapel football, a program that hadn’t experienced a winning season since 2011. Now, Egan looks to take the next step — a district title and a corresponding playoff appearance. Though the Wildcats will be without two-year starting quarterback Jacob Thomas (806 yards, nine touchdowns, two interceptions), other offensive standouts return, including leading rushers Dexter Leverett (1,249 yards, 10 touchdowns) and Malik Melvin (358 yards, seven touchdowns). The team’s top returning player, however, is cornerback Isaiah Bolden, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound Florida State commit. A consensus four-star recruit, Bolden is ranked as the nation’s 22nd best cornerback for the 2017 class, according to ESPN. The rangy athlete will once again be tasked with locking down the opposition’s top receiver and also contribute on special teams, where he averaged nearly 15 yards per punt return in 2016. Another Wildcats player to watch is middle linebacker Austen Wittish, who led the team with 93 tackles last season.WIREGRASS RANCH HIGH SCHOOLCOACH: MARK KANTOR (3RD YEAR) 2016 RECORD: 7-3It appears Wiregrass Ranch football has finally turned a corner, following last season’s program-high seven wins — good enough for District 8-8A runner-up. Don’t be surprised to see the Bulls have another fruitful season, considering the bevy of talent returning to the field. While a new quarterback must be groomed, the Bulls return 1,000-yard tailback Dada McGee (1,063 yards, 11 touchdowns), along with its top five wide outs, including 5-foot-8 slot back Adrian Thomas (17 receptions, 207 yards). Meanwhile, the Bulls again feature one of the most feared secondaries in the region, thanks to the return of uber-skilled cornerbacks Jordan Miner and Shamaur McDowell. Both heavily touted Division I prospects, Miner claims more than 20 scholarship offers, while McDowell has 10. The Bulls’ X-factor, however, may be newcomer Raymond Woodie III, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback transfer from Carrollwood Day School. The rising junior likewise is being courted by major Division I programs, holding offers from the likes of Southern California and Michigan State universities. (Woodie III is the son of Raymond Woodie Jr., former University of South Florida defensive coordinator and current inside linebackers coach/special teams coordinator at the University of Oregon.) Early season matchups against Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel and Sunlake should provide a good barometer of how the 2017 Bulls stack up.ZEPHYRHILLS HIGH SCHOOL:COACH: NICK CARROLL (2ND YEAR) 2016 RECORD: 8-3Even with a first-time head coach, the Zephyrhills Bulldogs maintained their consistent level of success in 2016. Last year marked the third consecutive eight-win season and sixth winning season overall for the program, leaving Bulldogs fans eager for the future. The 2017 edition could prove equally generous to the Bulldogs, with the return of major pieces from a potent, balanced offense that averaged 341 yards per game and scored 50 touchdowns last season. Some key returnees include quarterback Charles Harrison III (2,038 total yards, 26 touchdowns, five interceptions), leading rusher Elijah Thomas (649 yards, five touchdowns) and leading receiver Tre’Pavis Mobley (39 catches, 802 yards, 11 touchdowns). Defensively, the Bulldogs return its top two pass rushers from last season — Sterlin Williams (8.5 sacks) and Ja’varrius Wilson (eight sacks)— along with middle linebacker Zac Masci (66 tackles, 2.5 sacks). The Bulldogs, however, have some early tough tests, facing Wiregrass Ranch and Sunlake the first two weeks of the season.ZEPHYRHILLS CHRISTIAN ACADEMY:COACH: MIKE SMITH (3RD YEAR, 11-MAN) 2016 RECORD: 7-2Though the Warriors lose three key playmakers in Serion Bellamy (Shorter University in Georgia), Mykh'ael Chavis (Minnesota State) and John Emmanuel (Minnesota State), the team still has enough pieces to remain competitive in District 2-2A, in 2017. That starts with leading rusher Calvin Samuel, who racked up 695 yards and seven touchdowns on just 44 carries last season. Other contributors, like leading receivers Kollin Eckel (133 yards, three touchdowns) and Eugene Davis (145 yards, two touchdowns), are also expected to return, marking the program’s third year of playing 11-man football. Productive defensive players like lineman Jalen Spencer (24 tackles, 10 tackles for loss) and linebacker Alonzo Sampson (47 tackles, eight tackles for loss) should be back, too.Next week The Laker/Lutz News will preview Hillsborough County teams in our coverage area.

My family always had a huge garden. I used to help my dad with a secondary small landscaping business, back in the small town I grew up in. When I was in the corporate world, my lunch breaks used to consist of running around to the local nurseries, picking up plants of my own, St. Peter said. The palm arboretum, at 901 North Shore Drive N.E., in St. Petersburg, is a special place, he said. The best way I can describe it is, its like my cathedral. Theres an aura about it, he said. This is like a little hidden gem, agreed Phil Stager, another volunteer. The 2-acre park was once a city-owned miniature golf course. But, that was closed because of increasing maintenance costs. The arboretum began in 1976, after Elva Rouse, a concerned resident, suggested the area would be ideal for a palm arboretum. The St. Petersburg City Council adopted the proposal, and Gizella Kopsick, a longtime palm admirer, contributed a gift of stock which established the unique park. It began with 60 palms, representing 10 species. Now, there are more than 500 palms and cycads, representing about 200 species from all over the world. Citizen volunteers and city workers deserve the credit for collaborating to make the arboretum the special place that it is, St. Peter said. Stager said hes not aware of another place like it in the western hemisphere. Stager, who frequently leads free tours, is a font of knowledge about cycads and palms, and he rattles off facts as he shows off the collection. Palms are native to every continent, except the Antarctic, Stager said. Cycads are native to every continent, except Europe and the Antarctic. The park features about 100 species of palms and about 100 species of cycads. Stager shares information hes gleaned about the various species, while making his way around the park. Cycads are the oldest seed-bearing plants on the planet. They go back approximately 300 million years and have survived three major extinctions on the planet, Stager said. Palms, on the other hand, are about 60 to 65 million years old in the evolutionary scheme of things, he added. Theres an easy way to tell the difference between a palm and a cycad at the arboretum. The cycads are labeled with bright green signs; the palms are labeled with gray signs. The arboretum has every palm species thats native to Florida, said Stager, who enjoys sharing his knowledge. He said he tailors the free tours he gives to match the interests of the groups hes leading. If its for a Girl Scout troop, itll be one thing. If it is for a couple of dedicated plant nuts, itll be something else, Stager said. Not everyone who visits the arboretum is there for a tour. Moms push baby strollers through. Some take exercise classes there. Others simply relax on one of the parks benches. The venue has been used as a backdrop for photo shoots. And, Stager added: There are two Segway groups downtown. They come through here with great regularity. When Stager moved to Florida, he said he recognized two types of palms: Coconut palms and all others. But, then he planted a few palms at his house and wanted to find out more about them. So, he joined the International Palm Society, which has local chapters. It was a good move, according to Stager. Thats the best way to learn about palms, he said. B.C.
