SummerFest offers fireworks, funIts the only fireworks show in Zephyrhills. And, it promises to offer wholesome family fun. The 2017 Zephyrhills SummerFest is slated for June 24 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Zephyr Park, 38116 Fifth Ave. Besides offering free admission and parking, the event is pet friendly, too. However, alcohol sales will not be allowed. Entering its third year, Zephyrhills SummerFest is the only 4th of July celebration in the city, promoting summer, families and our great country. Arguably, its biggest attraction is a 30minute fireworks show, which is set to begin sharply at 9 p.m. The vibrant display by Patriot Fireworksis set over Zephyr Lake, the parks centerpiece pond. Besides nighttime fireworks, there are loads of daytime activities aimed at keeping families entertained on the last Saturday in June. Alongside dozens of food and business vendors, theres a watermelon-eating contest and dance contest, plus a water balloon toss,Pasco County wants to open the countys first homeless shelter as part of a comprehensive plan to help an estimated 3,300 homeless people. There are about 100 camps across Pasco County where people live, according to the Pasco County Sheriffs Office. The chosen location for what is proposed as a one-stop navigation center is in two county-owned buildings in west Pasco, formerly leased to the Boys & Girls Club. The Pasco County Commission was set to vote on June 20 (after The Laker/Lutz News deadline) on two federal grants that would be used to rehabilitate buildings. The goal is to open the navigation center in 2018. Pasco County and the Homeless Coalition of Pasco had public meetings on June 7 and on June 14 in New Port Richey to explain the navigation center and get public input. While most support the homeless shelter in concept, nearby neighbors in Cranes Roost and representatives of a nearby mall object to the proposed location at 8239 Youth Lane, off Little Road in New Port Richey. They worry about increased solicitation, crime and lowered property values. Studies have shown the opposite, including decreases in crime, said Raine Johns, chief executive officer of the Homeless Coalition of Pasco. Youll find this decreases dramatically, she said. However, a representative of Ridge Plaza, anchored by Hobby Lobby and a Walmart Neighborhood Market, said tenants have expressed concerns about impacts to their businesses. He also said no one had reached out to mall representatives to discuss the navigation center. It certainly merits that we get together, he said. Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano was the only commissioner to vote against the navigation center in November. He proposed putting the center in the Mike Fasano Regional Hurricane Shelter in Hudson. He said the program could be operated cheaper, safer and quicker if the shelter were used. Others said the hurricane shelter was in the middle of nowhere, with no bus service and few job opportunities. The last thing we want to do is institutionalize the homeless population, said Johns. The navigation center is modeled after one in San Francisco. It would be a onestop shelter that would work to place people into housing. They also would receive help in finding jobs, job training and health care, and receive personalized case management. The efforts would focus on one camp at a time, with as many as 75 single adult men and women housed an average of 90 days at the navigation center. Housing first. Thats the end goal, said Cathy Pearson, assistant county administrator for public services. A lot of partners are coming together. We believe in this. The count done by the sheriffs office found homeless camps in all areas of the county, including west Pasco, Zephyrhills, Land O Lakes and Dade City. This is a serious topic. We know that, said Pasco County Sheriffs Capt. James Steffens. Were trying to do something other than put handcuffs on people and take them to jail. The sheriffs office is one of the partners for the navigation center. Others include the United Way of Pasco, the Pasco County Housing Authority, and the Public Defenders Office of the Sixth Judicial Circuit. United Way will contribute about $100,000. About 50 housing vouchers will be dedicated to the navigation center. And, the public defenders office plans to send its mobile medical unit to the center. Pasco also plans to contribute about $50,000 for a program that would hire some of the homeless individuals for county labor. The goal is to help them learn skills and establish a work history. The County Commission is expected to be asked in September to transfer the navigation center property to the homeless coalition. As a nonprofit, the coalition has more access to additional grants.

She wanted to raise the profile of the GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club in the community of Land O Lakes. She wants the club to become a household name in Land O Lakes. She explained: We are very well-known in Lutz because we do the parade, we do the art show. But, Land O Lakes didnt know the ladies in the green shirts. I wanted some of the businesses to know who we are, and some of the community to know the wonderful work that we do, she said. The club is active in many ways. It pitches in at the Baldomero Lopez State Veterans Nursing Home in Land O Lakes. It sponsors the annual Lutz Arts & Crafts Show. It has an annual flea market, supports survivors of domestic abuse, helps to plant trees, decorates graves of veterans, packs boxes to ship to troops stationed overseas, and does all sorts of other things to support the communities of Lutz and Land O Lakes. It uses the money it raises to help local community groups, and support scholarships. So, Heim has learned a thing or two about fundraising. In her quest to become the honorary mayor, she hosted eight events. When she began the race, she was competing against Andre Pamplona. But, he needed to divert his energy to his family when owners of Royal Lanes decided to close the bowling center that Pamplona managed, Heim said. That didnt slow her down, though. The womans club will get a portion of the money she raised, she said. The chamber will get the rest for the community services that they do. Heim said she doesnt have a clique that she hangs out with, but she has loads of connections. Besides the womans club, shes involved with Women-N-Charge, which is a networking group. Shes also involved with AARP, churches and other groups. Heim said she wants to recruit more ladies to be involved with the womans club because more help is needed. There is a need in the community to Its called the dog flu, and it has hit the Sunshine State. The first confirmed case of the new H3N2 strain was reported in Deland over Memorial Day weekend. According to the University of Florida, the strain entered the state from dogs and people who have attended a dog show. Now, more than 30 cases of canine influenza have been reported across the state, mainly in northeast and central Florida. No cases have been reported in Hillsborough or Pasco counties, but it has reached Orlando. The highly contagious H3N2 virus first infected about 1,000 dogs in Chicago in 2015, and since has spread to more than 30 states. And, its more perilous than the H3N8 strain, first identified in Florida in 2004 in racing greyhounds. The new virus is characterized by persistent coughing, along with sneezing and nasal discharge. Many infected dogs experience a fever, decreased appetite and lethargy during the first few days of illness. Unlike other forms of dog flu, which have symptoms and risk of contagion lasting only for about a week, the H3N2 strain is contagious for at least 26 days and can live on surfaces for up to 24 hours, health officialsDog flu hits Florida and its contagious New center could help Pascos homeless COURTESY OF AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB FILE COURTESY OF SIMPLY EVENTS

As a child growing up in the Virgin Islands, she hated going to school. I had a difficult time listening and writing. I struggled with comprehension. She couldnt picture herself as a teacher. Times change. Christiansen, these days, lives in rural Pasco County where she tutors students usually working with them on mathematics inside a tree house in her backyard. A few yards away, a second tree house is nearing completion. The treehouses are taking her Yes You Can Tutoring service down a new path.For nearly 10 years, she has taught in her home, at 13050 Curley Road, near Dade City. Students could enjoy window views of the woodlands and open spaces, and sometimes a walk in the woods for a timely break in studies. Christiansen now is moving students even closer to nature. Theres something about a tree house that everybody loves, she said. Youre right in with nature. Its a really nice feeling. Research has found there is a link between nature and learning, she said. Environment plays a key part in the learning process, the tutor said. Nature reduces mental fatigue. I know it did for me. In addition to one-on-one tutoring sessions, the tree house will be the setting for a summer math retreat for girls in July. Its her third summer camp, but the first all-girls camp. There is a stereotype that women dont do well in math, Christiansen said. It saddens me, she said. We have to empower our girls. I just want to let them know they can do this. The tree house in her backyard is life coming full circle. Traditional schools and home-schooling were never the right fit for her in St. Croix. But, as a teenager, she connected with her teachers at an alternative school with outdoor classrooms, in gazebos. Teachers usually instructed only five or six students. The largest class size was about 15 students, Christiansen recalled. I loved the outdoors, she said. I was able to excel. She earned her high school diploma, and went to the University of Virgin Islands for two years. Her father, who taught marine biology, insisted she was meant to be a teacher. She didnt agree. Her life path included marriage, family and a home-based business as a clothes designer of sarongs. At one time, she had a kiosk at University Mall. A life-changing event turned her life around. Her son was diagnosed as borderline ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). She zeroed in on how to help him. She researched and studied the disorder, and then decided it was time to go back to school. Christiansen enrolled in Saint Leo University in 2000, setting a goal of becoming a special education teacher. She worked in the Pasco County school system for nearly nine years. Then, she returned to St. Croix to care for her father until his death. While there, she taught at a small private school. She was expected to teach subjects she wasnt familiar with health for one. And, administrators also tossed in drama. Because they said youre dramatic, Christiansen said. I could sink or swim. She swam, and relied on some advice from her father. He told me always be kind to every child. You never know their background or whats going on in their home. He treated every child with respect, she said. Back home in Pasco, Christiansen decided against going back into public schools. She wanted to do private tutoring. Her attitude was: Okay, God, Im going to put this in your hands. It was kind of a gamble, she said. Alexis Sandoval is one of her student successes. She came to Yes You Can as a high school student before the tree house was built. Sandoval appreciated the quiet rural setting of Christiansens home. I was failing, and I wasnt going to graduate, said Sandoval. She gained confidence with one-on-one tutoring, and learned to think for myself, she said. Today, she is at Pasco-Hernando State College where she makes A and B grades. I was never like that in high school, she said. Long-range, Sandoval plans to open a restaurant. Her older sister Karissa Sandoval, 25, also received tutoring from Christiansen after failing repeatedly to pass the reading portion of the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test). It is a requirement to earn a high school diploma. She has since passed the test, and is in school now to become a nurse, Christiansen said. Helping children find direction and purpose is part of the tutoring process, she added. Were put here on this Earth for a reason, Christiansen said. You have to have a purpose, what youre meant to do. For more information, visit, or call (352) 585-6327.Tree house tutoring blossoms in nature KATHY STEELE

Club member Madonna Wise, who happens to be a local historian, gained an appreciation for the role the club has played in community life, as she paged through the volumes that were faithfully compiled through the years. It has been involved in nearly every civic event during the past 70 years, said Wise, an author who has written a book about Dade Citys history. One example of that involvement, she said, was when there was a send-off for troops leaving for Afghanistan. The garden club was there, providing desserts for the event. Theyre just an integral part of Dade Citys fabric, Wise said. Gail Stout, the clubs outgoing president, said the greatest impact we have are our partnerships with the community. It was Gilberts love of gardening that led to the clubs creation, Stout said. She heard that this organization in Florida (The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs) existed and was growing, and thats what she decided to pursue, said Stout, who recently helped to organize the Dade City Garden Clubs 70th anniversary celebration. Within a year, the Dade City club was accepted for federation with the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. And, less than a year later it had its first flower show, based on the theme, The Spirit of Spring, according to club records. Through the years, the club has had the twin goals of beautification and advocacy. Early on, theyre saving the trees at the courthouse, Wise said. They started a junior garden club at the elementary school. They also have advised Dade City commissioners on decisions regarding landscaping, Wise added. During its heyday, the club had a radio show, Stout said. It had a column in a local newspaper, too, Wise added. In the beginning, the club met in its members homes and then later, at civic locations. In 1959, it purchased 2 acres on South Fifth Street for $9,000. By 1966, the club had paid it off. Soon after that, the organization sought to build a clubhouse. Our building story is unique, Stout said. Somehow, St. Ritas Catholic Church, which is up by Old Dade City Grammar School, offers to donate the building, Wise said. That building (which was St. Ritas mission church) dates back to 1913. It was quite the thing when they moved this building all across town. The structure was near what is now Cox Elementary School. Movers took the structure down Seventh Avenue and had to get the power company to move power lines so they could get the building through. It was really quite a move that they orchestrated, Stout said. A contractor named Michael Giella advised the club on how to renovate the building and held the $35,000 mortgage. Giellas contributions were recognized during the 70th anniversary celebration, when a paver dedicated to his memory was presented to his widow. The club had its first meeting in the building in September of 1977 and hosted an open house later that year attracting members of garden clubs from Tampa, Lakeland, Clearwater and across Pasco County. There were 57 charter members of the garden club. The last charter member was just deceased, Stout said. The club officially has 113 members, but there are some older members who are too frail to attend meetings, she said. Through the years, the garden club has fostered leadership opportunities for women, and has helped to build connections throughout Dade City, Wise said. It also has provided a forum for members to learn the political ways of trying to influence legislators and local government for environmental purposes, that type of thing, Stout observed. Two years ago, we had a fracking (hydraulic fracturing) seminar, to talk about the pros and cons of fracking, mostly the cons. We were leaning toward that, Stout said.Dade City has since banned fracking from within the city limits.Although membership has declined, the club has staying power. It has several secondand thirdgeneration members, and many come from families that have played an influential role in the life and development of Dade City, Wise noted. The club is divided into smaller groups, called circles, which are named after flowering trees or plants. We had seven circles at the height of our glory, Stout said. Now, it has these six circles: Azalea, Poinsettia, Magnolia, Holly Hock, Hibiscus and Dogwood. The club has traditions, too. It decorates the Pioneer Museum at Christmas and also hosts Uncorked, a wine-tasting fundraiser. It helps keep the memory of the communitys history alive, too, by creating an ornament each year to honor a local place or organization. Proceeds from the ornament sales help support the garden clubs upkeep and help pay for club projects. The club also hosts a flower show every other year which is a popular event, and which garden club members view as their gift back to the community, Stout said. Members join the club for different reasons. Stout became a member after she bought a 1925 bungalow that came with more than 90 camellias. Stout decided she needed to join the club so she could learn everything she could about camellias. Later, she learned that Gilbert had obtained camellias from Georgia. Quite likely, Stout said, some of those camellias can be traced back to the garden clubs original founder. Now, thats what some would call coming full circle. COURTESY OF RICHARD K.

Closer Look an advertiser Profile Special to The Laker / Lutz News The official grand opening of Lakeside Heating, Cooling & Plumbing in Land O Lakes is being celebrated June 21 with a ribbon cutting co-hosted by the Central Pasco and Wesley Chapel chambers of commerce. The public is invited to the event, which takes place from 5p.m. to 7 p.m. at Lakesides office on Bell Lake, at 4608 Land O Lakes Blvd. Chamber members, customers and friends can enjoy food catered by Hungry Harrys Bar-B-Que and raffles for A/C cleanings, thermostats and gift cards. Lakeside Heating, Cooling & Plumbing opened in March and has already earned an A Rating from Angies List and the Better Business Bureau, as well as being designated a Star Contractor with HomeAdvisor. We are very happy with the positive reception weve gotten from the community, said owner Ron. It is gratifying to have helped so many local families with their air conditioning needs, and also to support several local sports teams and special events with our sponsorships. Ron is a respected and longtime HVAC technician with 22 years experience in Pasco and Hillsborough counties. Before establishing Lakeside Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, Ron was a partner in an HVAC company based in Lutz. Working alongside Ron at the company is Omar Matos, a highly qualified HVAC technician with 15-years experience who is also EPA certified. Eric Rapp also works for the company as an HVAC technician, and Jackie Horruitiner is the office manager. Im taking all that Ive learned from my previous business and applying it to make Lakeside successful, said Ron, who plans to keep his new company small, so he can offer low prices and be closely involved in customer service. After 22 years in the business, Ive seen every problem there is, and can quickly and accurately assess the best course of action when someone calls with a problem, said Ron. Lakeside Heating, Cooling & Plumbing specializes in helping families with A/C units that are 10 to 15 years old. We believe in being proactive, instead of waiting for an emergency when your A/C stops working in the heat of the summer, said Ron. There are thousand of homes in Lutz, Land O Lakes and Wesley Chapel that were built in the early 2000s, whose air conditioning systems need service and upgrades. We can save you money, if you call before your system breaks down. Lower energy cost is another reason to upgrade your A/C system, Ron explains. Most people see savings of 20 percent to 50 percent when they upgrade to a new system with a higher SEER rating, he said. All the units we install have a minimum SEER rating of 14, and our top-rated, quietest Rheem system offers an unbelievable rating of 20.5. Higher SEER ratings result in dramatic energy savings often more than $100 a month on your utility bills. For people installing new systems, this energy savings make for an excellent return on investment, Ron said. In addition to Rheem, Lakeside also installs air conditioning systems manufactured by Goodman, Frigidaire and Mitsubishi. Both Duke Energy and TECO offer rebates of up to $800 to customers who replace their old system with a new unit that has a SEER rating of 15 or higher. Lakeside takes care of all the rebate paperwork for its customers. The company also installs whole house filtration systems, hot water heaters, and secures rebates up to $550 for customers who install tank-less, gaspowered tanks that are serviced by Peoples Gas and Clearwater Gas. We take our responsibility very seriously when you place your trust in us, said Ron. Please give us a call for your A/C service needs, and see what you've been missing.

That means it can spread through toys, leashes, kennel crates, dishes and floors, along with contaminated hands and clothing; frequent hand washing with soap and water, normal laundering of clothing and bedding, and washing food/water bowls and toys with soap is strongly advised. The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine says there is no evidence the disease can infect humans, but it can spread to cats. Dr. Cynda Crawford, of the University of Floridas Maddies Shelter Medicine Program, said the virus is an imminent threat to dogs statewide. Were probably just seeing the tip of the iceberg, she said. It is very important for both veterinarians and dog owners in the state of Florida to have very heightened awareness of the presence of this virus in the state. The flu can infect all canine dogs, regardless of breed, age or health status, according to Dr. Moses Kawalya, of Pet Point Animal Hospital in Lutz. All dogs are at risk; theres no preferential breed, he said. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the H3N2 disease is an avian flu virus that adapted and since spread to dogs. It was first detected in South Korea in 2007 before making its way to the United States in 2015. No end appears in sight. Viruses generally have aggressive potential for mutation, so its possible that you can get one strain under control, and then another comes later on, which could be more contagious than the other ones before, Kawalya explained. Fortunately, most dogs recover from H3N2 without complications, health officials say. But, some can develop life-threatening pneumonia, if the dog isnt under the care of a veterinarian with proper treatments. The best prevention is vaccination. The more dogs that we can vaccinate and build up community immunity, the better chance we have of keeping this virus out of a community, said Crawford. It is all about using vaccines to build a wall an immune barrier to stop the virus from entry. Dogs are most at-risk when around other dogs that may be sick or in areas other dogs hang out at. Nose-to-nose contact with other dogs is one of the ways dogs can contract the virus. Dog parks, pet stores, pet day care centers and grooming salons are also examples of places canines can contract the dog flu from, if a contagious dog has been there. Besides public places, dog shows are particularly risky, Crawford said. This is a clear problem in the dog show population, she said. I think it is a high risk to take dogs to dog shows at this time, because there could be dogs that are infected and contagious to other dogs, Crawford added. She also noted canines that mainly stay within the confines of their homes or yard are least at-risk. Though she still recommends vaccination, in case an emergency arises. Most dogs are probably in a risk group for exposure, Crawford said. Their risk for exposure increases significantly, if the virus has been documented to be circulating in the community and state where they live. Despite the virus rise, some local residents dont plan to vaccinate their dogs, yet. Sharon Espinola, a Lutz resident who owns a 5-year-old border collie mix, said she doesnt believe her dog, Leo, needs the flu vaccine. Given his age and health status, and the fact that we dont go to dog parks, I feel like hes not at risk, she said. Now, if it looked like it was more widespread and was something that was really going to impact his health negatively, I would certainly take a second look at it. Nevertheless, shes still monitoring the disease to see if it reaches the Tampa Bay region. I think being aware is really important, she said, and, if you have a dog with a compromised immune system, I think it would definitely be something to look at. Terri Garey, a Lutz resident who owns two Yorkillons, hasnt vaccinated, either. I havent had the dogs vaccinated because their contact with other dogs is very limited. We dont board them or take them to the dog park, Garey wrote in an email to The Laker/Lutz News. For pet owners who think their dog has become infected, Kawalya suggests calling their veterinarian ahead so they can take precautionary measures. The vet has to make sure they minimize any exposure to any dog that may be at the vets office, he said. They may want to bring the dog through a separate door or entrance. Meanwhile, the Hillsborough Countys Pet Resource Center is taking steps to protect against the latest, highly contagious mutation of canine influenza. The facility, at 440 N. Falkenburg Road, is now closed to the public on Mondays to give veterinary staff more time to examine dogs and allow shelter staff to conduct weekly deep cleanings for added disease prevention; the closure will give the dogs and cats a day of rest from constant human interaction. Beginning July 1, pet intake will end an hour earlier, at 6 p.m., to allow more time for the veterinary staff to examine dogs that are received at the end of the day. Also beginning July 1, owners who surrender dogs will be asked to make appointments so the facility can proactively combat outside contamination. Additionally, county residents bringing in dogs or cats that are coughing or sneezing will be asked to keep the pet outside of the Pet Resource Center and contained in the residents vehicle to avoid possible contamination, whereby veterinary staff will provide an initial examination prior to the pet entering the building to ensure the safety of the pets inside the building. help with community services, Heim said. Many of the women in the club are getting older and arent able to do as much as they once could, she said. Not all of the ladies are physically able to move tables and set up crafts, she said. We would love younger people with better backs. Besides working to increase the womans clubs ranks, Heim hopes she can attract more members to the Central Pasco Chamber, too. She plans to be an ambassador for the organization reaching out to new businesses and giving them a warm welcome from the chamber. Ill do the ribbon cuttings, she said. Shell also be participating in the Lutz Fourth of July Parade. Theyre going to get me a convertible, said Heim, who joined the womans club 10 years ago, after retiring from her job as a special needs school assistant at Denham Oaks Elementary. She said shes happy to be the face of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, and will do what the chamber would like her to do to spread its goodwill. If any of the schools asks me to come and speak and give awards to the kids, Im available to do that, Heim said. Being involved is rewarding, said Heim, noting she was overwhelmed during a recent pasta dinner fundraiser she had. Ninety-six people turned out. I was just so honored and overwhelmed by the love shown in that room, she said. They were chanting my name, Rosie. Rosie. It was incredible, Heim said. When you give, its always returned to you 10-fold. couples relay race and sack race. For youngsters, theres a designated Kids Area featuring multiple bounce houses, waterslides and face painting. Zephyr Parks full playground and wet zone also will be open for children. Between the family friendly entertainment, DJ Express will be spinning upbeat tunes all afternoon, at the Zephyr Park gazebo. Patrons are advised to bring lawn chairs or blankets, and arrive early for prime parking spots. Sponsored by the City of Zephyrhills, the festival is organized by Clearwater-based Simply Events Inc. The company organizes several events in the city, including the popular Zephyrhills Pie Festival, Zephyrhills Artsy Farmers Market and Snowbird Palooza. Drew Cecere, co-owner of Simply Events, said the idea for Zephyrhills SummerFest stemmed from the city not having a fireworks show for many, many years. There wasnt a whole lot that went on in the area for families when we started doing events out here, said Cecere, who has relatives living in Zephyrhills. We make a full event out of it. While the festival still lacks major corporate sponsors, Cecere said attendance increased substantially last year, with thousands of people turning out especially for the 30-minute firework display. The first year was good, the second year...was really amazing, he said. A lot of people on Facebook videotaped it, and were just shocked by how long the fireworks show was. The event also benefits the Samaritan Project of Zephyrhills, a nonprofit organization that assists the short-term financial needs of people and families. The local organization will get a portion of the funds generated through the festivals bounce houses, and auctions and raffles. We love to give back, Cecere said. In every event that we do, we have a local nonprofit involved. This event, we have to do fundraising because theres no entry (fees), theres no parking (fees), theres no alcohol sales, and thats normally the stuff that would go to a nonprofit. Should inclement weather arise, deciding whether to reschedule the festival will be played by ear between city officials and event organizers, Cecere said. Were going take every effort to make sure it goes on (June 24), Cecere said. If its a downpour that just lasts thirty minutes, well just wait and do the fireworks thirty minutes later. But, if its like a long couple hours storm where we just cant hold it, then we would have to get with the city and figure out a new date. Considering the expenses for fireworks alone, Cecere added the show definitely would be something that would be rescheduled in case of thunderstorms or heavy rain. Regardless, the festival doesnt appear to be going away anytime soon, as its attendance increases and support from the city continues, Cecere said.

The 2017 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft wrapped up on June 14, and several baseball players with ties to The Laker/Lutz News Coverage Area were selected. The first-year player draft is Major League Baseballs primary mechanism for assigning amateur baseball players, from high schools, colleges and other amateur baseball clubs, to its 30 teams which offer up millions of dollars in signing bonuses to its top draftees.There were 40 rounds and 1,205 picks in total, over the three-day draft. Of those picks, 135 were from the state of Florida, second to only California, which produced 192 selections. Remarkably, four former Steinbrenner High School players were selected Kevin Merrell (first round), Patrick Morris (14th round), Josh Falk (17th round) and CJ Van Eyk (19th round). The draft was also kind to Odessa natives Bishop McLaughlin product Nate Pearson (first round) and Alonso Highs Jordan Butler (33rd round). Other local talent selected included Sunlake High right-hander Tommy Mace (14th round) and Bishop McLaughlin outfielder Paul Coumoulos (40th round). Just two players with local ties were selected in last years draft: Saint Leos Troy Sieber was picked in the 24th round by the Houston Astros, while Gaither Highs Camryn Williams was picked in the 39th round by the Seattle Mariners. Sieber, a first baseman, is currently assigned to the Greeneville Astros, a rookie-level affiliate in Tennessee. Williams, a shortstop, opted to hold off a pro career to attend Dallas Baptist University, in Texas. Hell again be draft-eligible in 2019.NATE PEARSONToronto Blue Jays-first round, 28th pick The Odessa native graduated from Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School in 2015, where he was one of the top pitchers in the state (1.24 career ERA). He attended Florida International University as a freshman, then transferred to College of Central Florida in Ocala. In his lone season there, he posted a 1.56 ERA and 118 strikeouts in 81 innings, and was named JUCO Pitcher of the Year by Perfect Game. An imposing 6-foot-6, 245-pound righthander, Pearson is lauded for a blistering fastball, which touches 101 miles per hour. Baseball America ranked him as the states second best draft prospect, just behind University of Florida ace Alex Faedo. Based on his draft position, Pearson could receive a signing bonus upwards of $2.3 million.KEVIN MERRELL Oakland Athletics-first round, 33rd pick The Steinbrenner High product and University of South Florida shortstop is widely viewed as the fastest college player in the 2017 draft class. On his high school track team, the 6-foot-1, 189-pound Merrell ran a 10.6-second, 100-yard dash. Those wheels translated well to the baseball diamond, where he stole 56 bases in his three-year college career, eighth-most in program history. Besides pure speed, the left-handed hitter boasts an elite bat, posting a career .353 average, and becoming the only player in South Florida history to lead the team in hitting three-straight seasons. He also showed power in 2017, slugging seven home runs and 15 extra-base hits. Merrells on-field performance earned him several end-of-year accolades, including 2017 American Athletic Conference First Team and 2017 Baseball America Second Team All-American. Meanwhile, he was ranked as the states seventh best draft prospect and 51st overall, according to Baseball America. Based on his draft position, Merrell is slotted to receive a signing bonus upwards of $2 million.TOMMY MACE Cincinnati Redsth round, 347th pickOne of the most effective prep arms in the Tampa Bay area, Mace tallied a 1.29 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 70.2 innings, with an 82 record in 11 appearances and helped guide Sunlake High to the Class 7A regional finals. A lanky 6-foot-7, 200-pound right-hander, Mace has developed a consistent 90 mph fastball, along with a tight curveball and usable changeup. Previously a University of Kentucky commit, Mace has since elected to play baseball at the University of Florida. If he temporarily forgoes a pro career, hell be draft-eligible again in three years, likely improving his draft stock. Should he sign with Toronto, it could mark solid draft value at pick No. 347 for the pro club, as Baseball America ranked Mace the states 12th best draft prospect and 88th overall.PATRICK MORRIS Toronto Blue Jaysth round, 429th pickA power-hitting, left-handed first baseman, Morris possessed extra-base and home run power the past two seasons at Steinbrenner High, racking up eight home runs, 17 doubles and 43 RBIs cumulatively. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Morris also was a solid pitcher, posting a career 2.71 ERA, with 82 strikeouts in 95.2 innings. Baseball America ranked Morris as the states 89th best draft prospect. He is a Florida Atlantic University commit.JOSH FALK Oakland Athleticsth round, 501st pickFalk began his prep career at Steinbrenner High, and then transferred to Bishop McLaughlin, where he graduated in 2013. He started his college career at Hillsborough Community College, before winding up at the University of Pittsburgh, where he developed into the pitching staffs ace. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound right-hander finished the season with a 3.92 ERA, with a record of 3-7 in 14 appearances. He also ranked among ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) leaders in innings (85), strikeouts (75) and batting average against (.228). Falk, who faced elite competition at Pitt, can locate all three of his pitches for strikes, which includes an effective breaking ball. CJ VAN EYK New York Metsth round, 577th pick A highly touted prospect, Van Eyk possibly dropped in the draft due to medical and signability concerns as a firm Florida State University commit. This past season at Steinbrenner, Van Eyk threw just 38.1 innings and was shut down in April with arm soreness. In his limited action, however, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound righty was virtually unhittable, posting a 0.73 ERA and 56 strikeouts. Besides a blazing 95-mph fastball, Van Eyk possesses a devastating curveball and effective changeup. Last summer, the Steinbrenner star jumped onto the national radar, as a member of the USA Baseball 18 and under teams pitching staff, helping the squad win gold at the Pan American Championships. Also in 2016, he led Steinbrenner to its first state baseball title and was crowned the Florida Dairy Farmers Class 8A Player of the Year. Baseball America ranked Van Eyk as the states 18th best draft prospect and 109th overall. Some believe he could develop into a future first-round selection after seasoning at Florida State.JORDAN BUTLER New York Yankeesth round, 1,022nd pickThe Odessa native starred at Alonso High for three years, morphing into one of the states top two-way high school players. On the mound this past season, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound southpaw registered a miniscule 0.85 ERA and 122 strikeouts in 82 innings, with a record of 9-2. At the plate, he hit .451, with eight home runs and 35 RBIs. Butler will likely forgo a pro contract to attend the University of Florida, where he can raise his draft stock. Baseball America ranked Butler as the states 41st best prospect and 251st overall. Also of note: he was a teammate of Van Eyk on the USA Baseball 18 and under squad last summer.PAUL COUMOULOSPhiladelphia Philliesth round, 1,193rd pickA four-year varsity player at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School, Coumoulos proved one of the best pure hitters in Pasco County each season. In 104 career games, the 6-foot, 205-pound outfielder posted a career .378 batting average, .471 on-base percentage, 21 doubles and 62 RBIs. Also a capable runner, Coumoulos racked up 31 steals on 33 attempts in his career.He is a College of Central Florida commit.Locals fare well in 2017 MLB Draft FILE COURTESY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH COURTESY OF THE COLLEGE OF CENTRAL FLORIDA COURTESY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA COURTESY OF LORRAINE SARGENT COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY

AR A T F I D G AI A RE $250 N I O W E NC A CH R FO E N LI N TER S I G RE A A P C INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B The Tampa Bay area has all sorts of places to escape and feel like youre on vacation without having to drive very far or fly off somewhere.And, when you get company from afar, theres always someplace wonderful like Fort De Soto Park to take them. Here, all in one place, are a world-class beach, views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, two fishing piers, boat launches, a historic fort, a ferry ride to Egmont Key, nature trails, kayak rentals, picnic shelters and the chance to see dolphins, manatees and more than 300 species of birds. If you like to camp, the park Pinellas Countys largest, with 1,136 acres offers 238 camp sites for tents, pop-ups and RVs. When my niece, Katie, visited recently from Georgia, we spent the day at the park soaking up sun, touring the fort and its museum, and strolling on Gulf Pier, where we saw five dolphins leaping from green, choppy water. I had promised shed see dolphins around the pier, attracted by thousands of tiny bait fish that always seem to be around. And, there they were, cruising close to the pier and arching out of the water in pairs perfect for a picture she sent to her mom. All sorts of fishermen from regulars with their wheeled carts overflowing with fishing gear to sunburned tourists try their luck on the 1,000-foot-long pier, so its a good place to people watch. A friendly fisherman, obviously a regular, helped us spot dolphins, while a younger man, who looked like a spring-breaker, hung his rod over the railing, trying hard to catch bait fish clustered under the pier. A cheering section probably his family rooted him on. We saw all sorts of birds that day seagulls soaring over the pier, pelicans in the bayou fronting the campgrounds, great blue herons and snowy egrets keeping watch at the beaches and curlews, which we call chickens, pecking around the camping and picnic grounds. At the campground, we watched a man fishing in Mullet Key Bayou, water up to his thighs, oblivious to kayakers slipping silently behind him. Many sites line the bayou, with open views of water. We liked the fact that tents which we prefer and smaller popups have their own area, separate from spots that allow RVs, which are known to run noisy generators, even at night. Campers with dogs have yet another area far from campers who prefer to travel without pets. The opposite was true at Jonathan Dickinson State Park on the east coast when we visited recently. Giant RVs overshadowed tiny tents and lots of campers had dogs in the campground we saw. Fort De Sotos campsites also offer lots more shade: most are nestled among trees that provide a natural barrier between sites. Bathhouses some recently updated were clean on our visit. A camp store sells everything from food to camping supplies and Florida souvenirs. And, its a bargain to camp there at right around $40 a night for tent or RV. A walking, biking trail leads to the boat launch area, with 11 floating docks, where we saw kayakers heading out for a ride. The trail also goes to the beach, and to the Gulf and Bay piers, the fort, picnic areas and shelters, and to a concession/snack bar/souvenir shop next to the fort. After checking it out, we decided to eat there, since it would have taken too much time away from the park to drive to eat lunch somewhere else. We were happily surprised to find that the food was very good fresh and cooked right there by a shortorder cook. And, the price was good, under $10, for an excellent Caesar salad with grilled chicken. We ate at picnic tables just outside the concession with mostly British tourists on holiday. It was an easy stroll to the fort, built in the late 1800s to protect the Tampa Bay area during the Spanish-American War. We walked around the remaining fortifications and studied the two British rapid-fire rifles built in 1890 that once protected Egmont Key, when it was home to Fort Dade and later moved to Fort De Soto so more people could see them. And, we checked out the last four 12-inch M 1890-MI mortars remaining in North America. The only others are in the Philippines. Surprisingly, very little signage or historical information is available at the fort. But, we later discovered a free history museum that offers all sorts of information about the fort in a building next to the Gulf Piers parking lot. A park brochure online at (select Fort De Soto Park) also features a historic walking tour of the fort with pictures and lots of good information. Its best to go the museum, or check out the brochure, before visiting the fort. We wish we had. The parks beach is among the best in the country, with powdery white sand, and on weekdays there are large areas with few people. The beach deserves its accolades. Stephen Leatherman, known as Dr. Beach, crowned Fort De Sotos beach as No. 1 in the nation in 2008 and as one of Americas best in 2005. (He never picks the same beach for the top spot more than once). And, Trip Advisor, the popular online travel site, picked it as the nations top beach in 2009. Two designated swim centers East Beach and North Beach have plenty of parking, picnic shelters, restrooms, showers and playgrounds. A dog beach area is between the Gulf and Bay piers. On the beach, a warm breeze blew softly and white billowy clouds danced across a clear blue sky. Sea oats sprung from the sand and kids played under royal blue beach umbrellas. It was a picture postcard day in Florida. We had one more nice surprise before heading home. We drove south along the beach, past the giant American flag near the park entrance station, and at the end of the road saw kite-boarders soaring above the water, their colorful kites against the sky with the Sunshine Skyway Bridge looming behind them. It was windy, the perfect day to fly. And, their pleasure was ours. Fort De Soto Park: A recreation destination TIPS FOR THE TRIPHow to get there:Fort De Soto Park is at 3500 Pinellas Bayway South in Tierra Verde. From St. Petersburg, take I-275 south, then exit 17 onto Pinellas Bayway/FL 682 west. After 3 miles, turn left onto Pinellas Bayway (FL 679). Go 6.6 miles to the park. Park entrance is $5.For informationon the park, maps, camping and picnic shelter reservations, see, and choose Fort De Soto Park. For reservations for the ferry to Egmont Key, call (727) 398-6577.Where to eat: We liked the concession snack shop next to the fort in the park. On another visit, we enjoyed lunch close to the park at the Island Grille & Raw Bar, 210 Madonna Blvd., Tierra Verde. It has good seafood, friendly service and a signature marlin mounted over the entrance. See fact: The park stretches over five keys: Mullet Key, St. Jean Key, St. Christopher Key, Madelaine Key and Bonne Fortune Key. KAREN HAYMON LONG
