There are many events planned across the Tampa Bay region, and here are a few of the choices.  Connerton’s annual Nation Celebration, in Land O’ Lakes, will take place July 1 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with a neighborhood party in its New Town community. There will be Build-A-Buddy, free games, a disc jockey, live music by GottagrooveBand, food trucks, local crafters, free bounce houses, and fireworks sponsored by Benedetto’s Ristorante Italiano. Guests can register by June 30 at Connerton.com/event-signup, to be eligible for a $250 gift card.  Chief Ryan Andrew Anthony of Station 1 Tampa (now open at State Road 54 and U.S. 41 in Land O’ Lakes), and All By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comPasco County commissioners didn’t care for the lean 2018 budget, with no frills, they received at a June 13 workshop. So, they added in about $7.6 million in reserve funds to pay for a litany of items for libraries, parks and public safety. At about $1.34 billion, the proposed fiscal year budget is slightly more than the $1.3 billion offered up by Pasco County Administrator Dan Biles. His version of the budget balanced revenues and expenses without dipping into reserves. Even so, the budget path taken by county commissioners is about $40 million lighter than the 2017 budget. It also maintains the current property tax rate. Some owners, with homestead exemption, could see slight increases due to a 2.1 percent increase in property values. “There’s a desire to maintain a level of service as we grow,” said Biles. “The issue is, how do we do that?” Since 2011, more than 60,000 new residents have moved to Pasco.

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comThe Pasco County School Board has begun exploring the idea of asking voters to support a half-penny sales tax to help pay for school construction. During a June 20 workshop on the district’s capital needs, School Board member Cynthia Armstrong asked staff to come back with a projection of how much the halfpenny tax would generate in 10 years and a list detailing the types of projects the tax revenues would support. Her request came during a board workshop immediately after the Pasco County Commission’s first public hearing on a proposal to boost school impact fees. The County Commission appears to be leaning toward an increase, but it’s not clear how much that increase will be, or when it will take effect. Even if the full amount of the proposed impact fees is approved, the district construction needs far outstrip its expected revenues, said Deputy Superintendent Ray Gadd. It is unlikely the money the district needs will be provided by the state Legislature, Gadd said. The district has identified these projects to be partially supported by the proposed impact fees:  Cypress Creek Middle School  Starkey Ranch, kindergarten through eighth grade  A new high school  A new elementary school in the Wesley Chapel area  A new elementary school in State Road 54 corridor area Those projects are based on current growth patterns, Gadd said. School construction needs outpace fundingSee FESTIVITIES page19A Vote set for July 11 on school impact feesBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comIt’s not clear yet how much Pasco County will increase school impact fees charged against new residential development, but there appears to be a consensus on the board that some increase is merited. School district officials and the building community also agree that higher fees will help address the district’s problem of providing school facilities to accommodate the district’s burgeoning enrollment growth. But, homebuilders and apartment developers don’t support the full amount of proposed rate increases. They say the building community is being asked to shoulder too much of the burden. They’ve asked the Pasco County Commission to reduce the proposed impact fees that were recommended by a school board consultant. All of these issues came up during the first public on an ordinance that would increase the impact fees. The second public hearing is set for July 11 at 1:30 p.m., at the historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City. The Tampa Bay Builders Association expressed its concerns in a May 1 letter to commissioners. “The School District proposes very significant increases in the impact fees for single family detached (+ $4,152, 85%); single family attached (+$1,877, 107%); multifamily (+$3,421,183%) and mobile homes (+$2,673, 93%). “However, even if the impact fees were increased to these levels the deficit (as projected by the School District) would be a staggering $284 million,” the letter notes. “We want to be part of the solution for funding, but we know we cannot be the only source of revenue. We support an in-FILEPasco County Schools would like to see more scenes like this around the district. The Pasco County School Board has asked district staff to research how much money a halfcent sales tax could generate and possible projects the revenues could support.See IMPACT, page19A See FUNDING, page19A COURTESY OF RICHARD K.

The group wants a home of its ownWhen American Legion Post 108 formed 80 years ago, it had its preliminary meeting in an old house on Denny Johnsons old grove, on Lake Fern Road, according to club records. About 10 veterans gathered for that initial 1937 meeting. Next, they met in an old store building on U.S. 41, then known as Route 41, near the Superette. After that, the group met for several years at the old Boy Scout Hall, with the Auxiliary members gathering in another room at that hall, according to an account published in a 1963 club newsletter. Flash forward eight decades to the present: The group is still active, but is seeking a permanent home and more members to increase its vitality. Were in a Catch-22. We need more members, and we need to meet in a place to get more members, said Lyle Watson, the posts adjutant. We need fundraisers. We need a place to hold fundraisers. You cant hold bingo if you dont have a building to hold bingo in. The post currently meets monthly at Harvester United Methodist Church. It would like to expand its activities, but it is difficult to fit into another organizations schedule and it doesnt have the financial means to purchase a permanent home. Still, the post has a proud history. When Post 108 was formed, it had 22 charter members. Over the years, membership has waxed and waned. The posts charter members must have been veterans of World War I, Watson observed. Post chaplain Fred Wilsky has firsthand knowledge of how the post got started: The guy who went out and recruited those members was my dad. He was a member of the Sulphur Springs Post. It was during the Depression, he noted.It was expensive for everybody to drive all of the way down there for a meeting, so they wanted to have a post out here, said Wilsky, a member of the Army Air Corps who served in Guam. N.B. Shewfelt, the posts adjutant in 1963, offered a glimpse into the organizations character in a February 1963 issue of the Lutz Legion News. Post No. 108 somehow keeps going right along doing their job of looking out for the interests of veterans, their widows and orphans, Shewfelt wrote. Over time, the name of the post was changed from Lutz Post 108 to Lutz-Land O Lakes Post 108. Post meetings now attract about 20 members. Some members have been lost to death, said Post Commander Ray Mason. We lost two veterans this year, noted Mason, who served from 1962 to March 1968 in the Navy as a commissary store keeper. One of those veterans who died was Granville Kinsman, a fighter pilot in World War II. He supported ground troops and escorted bombers to their destination, Mason said. He was a paid-up lifetime member of Post 108. He was 95 years old, Mason added. The attendance at his funeral was gratifying, Mason said. Oh, my God, it was packed, Mason said. Post members say their experiences in the armed forces give them a particular kind of camaraderie with others who have shared the military life. Currently, the posts main activities are awarding school medals, providing an oratorical contest, supporting the Baldomero Lopez State Veterans Nursing Home in Land O Lakes and posting flags on veterans graves. The organization presents two medals and two certificates at several local elementary and middle schools. The schools select the recipients. One medal goes to a boy and one goes to a girl. An honorable mention certificate also is awarded to a boy and to a girl. Sometimes we get invited, Watson said. The schools sometimes tell us what these kids have done to get selected. It is fantastic. It gives you a whole new perspective on public schools. At the high school level, theres an oratorical contest, with cash awards. The national winner gets an $18,000 scholarship, Mason said. Presenting the awards has been a long tradition, Wilsky said. The post has been doing that since the beginning. My sister (Virginia) won it in 1939 or 1940, he said. It was quite an honor, he said. It was an affirmation of good character and studying hard and everything good about a person. The post needs more members so it can be of greater service, according to Watson, who is retired Navy and served from 1956 to 1974. The post could also participate in more programs that are available that are supported by the national organization. Jim Evans said the post owes deep thanks to Vince Nasso, a former adjutant for the post. Without him, we probably wouldnt have a post. When I joined here, I actually came from a Tampa post. There was probably no more than four or five active members. It was terrible, said Evans, who was an Army intelligence analyst in France for three years, served in the Army Reserve for 15 years, then went back on active duty in the first Gulf War as a senior counterintelligence agent. When Evans attended his first meeting, Nasso was the only one there. Nasso, who has since passed away, was determined to keep the post going, Evans said. Belonging to the post is important, Evans said, because he wants to support the American Legions mission. Plus, he enjoys reconnecting with people who served, he said. You live in communities that probably have veterans, but you may not even know it, Evans said, adding he has a special affinity for veterans. I realize what most of them have been through, he said. Elaine Stoots, the posts new historian, said she wants to help keep the organization alive because we are losing some of the American ideals that founded this country. A lot of the rest of the world is looking to us for leadership and example. Who is going to provide it? asked Stoots, who served from 1984 to 1990, stationed at Hahn Air Base Germany and at Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Another plus? You dont need any special equipment. A cutting is a method of asexual reproduction. The new plant will have the same characteristics of the parent plant. One popular method of propagation is stem cuttings. Tender new growth forms at the tip of the stem; the stem becomes woodier toward the bottom and the roots. Stem cuttings of the new growth is easier for beginner gardeners. Cuttings from the woody part of the stem are more difficult to propagate. For instance, you could propagate a croton plant by taking a stem cutting and planting it in a pot. Use your clean pruners to remove a 4inchto 6-inch-section, or cutting, from the main plant. Its important to note that some plants require cuttings to be longer. For example, plumeria cuttings are 12 inches to 15 inches long. Be brutal. Remove any flowers from the cutting, and strip off the lower leaves from the stem. Youll want to keep a few leaves for photosynthesis, but you also want to reduce transpiration and encourage the cutting to put its energy into producing new roots. Some cuttings, like plumeria, need to dry first so a callus forms at the cut end of the stem. If its not possible to plant your cutting right away, wrap it in several layers of paper towels and place in a zip-top bag to keep the cutting moist until youre ready to plant. Choose an appropriate pot for your cutting. Use clay or plastic containers, but make sure the container has drainage holes so the cutting does not stay too wet. Many people prefer plastic containers (similar to the 4inch pots you find at the nursery) because they dont dry out as quickly as clay pots. Place the cutting upright in a sterile potting mix, planting them about 1-inch deep. Longer cuttings, such as those for plumeria, will need to be planted about 3-inches deep so they stand upright in the pot. Choose potting soil that drains well. You can try using a rooting hormone. Dip the cutting about -inch in the rooting hormone before planting in the soil. Rooting hormones are available at garden centers and nurseries. Locate your cutting in bright, indirect light so it gets some light but not the hot, afternoon sun. Keep the soil moist until the cutting establishes roots and begins to put out new growth. You may transplant your cutting into the garden once it has established roots and you see new leaves. This process may take a few months, depending on the plant. You could also share your plant with friends or give them as gifts. Some of my favorite plants to root from cuttings include croton, Chinese rain bell, Dracaena, hibiscus, Euphorbia graminea, NICOLE PINSONIochroma is a unique garden plant that attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

June 28, 2017 A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION IN THE LAKER/LUTZ NEWS € 813-909-2800 € LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM There’s no place like in PASCO & NORTH HILLSBOROUGH M any families are looking to move up to a new home in a planned community in the highly desirable areas of Lutz, Odessa, Land O’Lakes and Wesley Chapel. Families want the latest in home designs and resort-like amenities in developments that also offer outstanding schools and fast access to key transportation routes. Which is why the gated community of Birchwood Preserve, the newest Pulte Homes community in Tampa Bay, is the top choice for many families. Birchwood Preserve is centrally located in Lutz on Geraci Road, just minutes from the Veterans Expressway and St. Joseph’s HospitalNorth. Its zoned schools are all A-rated and are some of the best schools in Hillsborough County. The community also offers no CDD (Community Development District) fees. “The combination of all A-rated schools, a fantastic location and Pulte’s Life Tested home designs have made Birchwood Preserve a huge draw for families in search of a new home in the prestigious Lutz area,” said Sean Strickler, president of Pulte’s West Florida division. Zoned schools include Steinbrenner High, Martinez Middle and Mckitrick Elementary, all located just three miles from Birchwood Preserve. Just one mile away is a new charter school, Sunlake Academy of Math and Science, which opens this fall, as well as several private schools close-by, including Academy at the Lakes, Carrollwood Day School and Corbett Preparatory School of IDS. “Lutz is very attractive to many homebuyers because of its convenient proximity to North Dale Mabry and the Veterans Expressway, which provides quick and easy access to Tampa International Airport, the Westshore business district, International Plaza and the Gulf Coast beaches,” said Strickler. “Plus, we are surrounded by parks, trails and beautiful golf courses, which offer great entertainment and recreational opportunities.” Birchwood Preserve opened its sales center in May and has already sold more than a dozen homes. A total of 169 homes are planned for the community, including 108 in its first phase. Many home sites boast nature views, including waterfront lots. Birchwood Preserve offers 10 single-family floor plans ranging from the one-story, 1,904-square-foot Cascade home design to the twostory, 4,600-plus square-foot Heatherton home design. Homes start at $318,990 and offer three to six bedrooms, two to six bathrooms and twoor three-car garages. All floor plans are designed for the way families live today, and include Environments for Living Diamond Energy Efficient packages. Pulte’s interactive online design tools allow buyers to preview its Life Tested personal options to help them get the most out of their new home. “The ideas for our Life Tested options come from our homeowners, whose suggestions we value and take seriously,” said Strickler. “An example is the Pulte Planning Center — a unique, multifunctional area designed with counters and cabinets to help a family get organized in one place that is conveniently located off their garage or gathering room.” Pulte Homes’ designs also offer Everyday Entry drop zones with built-in shelving, hooks, and storage to accommodate backpacks, shoes, purses, and jackets. The entrance to Birchwood Preserve is gated and beautifully landscaped. Amenities include a luxury community swimming pool with cabanas and hammocks, a multipurpose clubhouse room with a kitchen, and a children's exploration climbing dome playground that includes swings and additional discovery play equipment.

Did you know that your electric bill can be impacted by the amount of humidity in your home?Temperature is not the only factor that affects your comfort. Ever notice how 80 on a spring day with low humidity feels great and you dont break a sweat, but 80 in the summer with 100% humidity feels unbearable and you are drenched? This is because lower humidity allows water to evaporate more quickly. The evaporation of sweat from your skin is how your body cools itself. Air conditioners work similarly.Consider this. Hot air holds more humidity than cold air. Thats why water droplets form on a cold glass of ice water. The air around the glass drops in temperature, reducing the amount of moisture the air can hold. The air condenses, resulting in condensation on the glass. The same is true for the air in your home. As the air temperature rises above your desired temperature setting, your air conditioner kicks on. The warm air is then blown over the cold evaporator coils in your air handler. The moisture in the air condenses onto the coils, is captured and drained away. The warm, damp air is quickly exchanged with the cooler, drier, conditioned air, which is then returned to the living space of your home. So what does that mean for you? It means the new high-efficiency variable speed air conditioning systems like Bryants Preferred and Evolution Series comfort systems, give you the ability to dial in a lower humidity setting, allowing you to operate youre air conditioner at a higher temperature.

Some are content to watch the shows staged by professionals, but its not uncommon for friends and neighbors to create their own fireworks displays. With that in mind, weve gathered some safety tips in an attempt to help people avoid injuries during this upcoming holiday weekend. Here are some pointers from the National Council on Fireworks Safety: Obey local laws regarding the use of fireworks. (Check local law enforcement websites for guidance). Read the labels on your fireworks to understand the precautions you should take and the performance descriptions of the firework, before you ignite it. A responsible adult should supervise all firework activities. Do not give fireworks to children. Remember that alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Save your alcohol for after the show. Be sure to wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks. Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away. Use fireworks outdoors, in a clear area. Be sure you are not near buildings or vehicles. Do not relight a dud firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water. Have a bucket of water nearby, as well as a water hose thats ready to use. Do not carry fireworks in your pockets or shoot them into a metal or glass container. Do not experiment with homemade fireworks. Dispose of spent fireworks by getting them wet and placing them in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials. Leave them there until the next day. Do not attempt to transport fireworks in your checked baggage or carry-on luggage. Possessing or transporting fireworks in checked or carry-on baggage violates the Federal Aviation Administration regulations.Wishing you a happy and safe Fourth of July

Meanwhile, the newly built Cypress Creek Middle High School, off Old Pasco Road, is scheduled to open this fall. Initially, it will serve students in grades six through 11, but it will add grade 12 during the second year. Its boundaries affected Rushe, John Long and Weightman middle schools, and Sunlake, Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass high schools. Bexley Elementary School, 4380 Ballantrae Blvd. in the Bexley subdivision off State Road 54, also is set to open in the fall. It is intended to reduce crowding at Oakstead and Odessa elementary schools. The district also is proceeding on massive remodeling projects at Land O Lakes High School in Land O Lakes and Woodland Elementary School in Zephyrhills. Armstrong also urged supporters of the proposed school impact fee increase to show up to make their views known at the Pasco County Commissions second public hearing on school impact fees. That meeting is set for July 11 at 1:30 p.m., at the historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City. proved, could cost the county about $10 million in revenues beginning with the 2020 budget. County commissioners met in a workshop in New Port Richey for their first look at the new budget. They must approve the property tax rate on July 11. Two public hearings will be scheduled before a final vote in September. The fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. County commissioners quickly zeroed in on initiatives that they wanted to restore to residents, including extended library hours, new ambulances, park upgrades and fire trucks, and new hires for the Pasco County Sheriffs Office. I am not happy with the amount of money were giving our parks, said Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. Because at $9 million, were closing our parks. We cant continue at this levelIm not happy having our libraries closed. Starkey suggested creating taxing units to dedicate money to libraries and parks. But, budget deadlines stymied that idea, and county commissioners opted to go again, to the reserve funds. Pay raises for county employees were a priority. Pasco County Commissioner Mike Wells said employees went for years without raises during the downturn of the economy. I hope we can eventually get to performance-based (pay raises), Wells said. There were some folks that were very, very, very underpaid. The initial budget, as presented by Biles, didnt have money for more library hours or much for parks. It did have about $5 million for a third installment of promised pay raises to sheriffs deputies. But, that left only about $557,000 in new revenue, and about $8 million in unfunded requests. There is potential for additional revenues from property taxes when Pasco County Property Appraiser Gary Joiner gives his final numbers by July 1. The current budget proposal includes preliminary estimates of about $24.2 million in tax revenues. That is about $1.3 million more than last year, or about a 5.8 percent increase. If final data exceeds that projection, commissioners can put money back into reserves, or opt to fund additional items. The following items were among those added to the budget: Additional 2 percent pay raise for county employees (for a total of 4 percent) Upgrades for parks in danger of being closed 14 new hires at the sheriffs office, including a crossing guard and traffic control officers Two new hires at property appraisers office and equipment upgrades Six new hires at the Pasco County Clerk & Comptrollers office A One Stop Shop for community services in Dade City More library hours and design work to modernize the New River and Centennial libraries Four new hires to aid administration in rewriting land development codes crease in the school impact fee for single family detached homes of $2,300, the letter says.Mark Spada, president of the builders association, reiterated those positions during the public hearing. The association also advocates an effective date of Jan. 1, 2018, for the higher fees. The current proposal calls for the new fees to take effect 90 days after the ordinance is adopted. Representatives for the multifamily industry and a land broker also expressed concerns about the proposed fees. The multifamily industry representatives said the fees are disproportionate for multifamily and will undermine new apartment development in Pasco County. They also questioned the data used to compute how many students are generated from multifamily developments. A land broker urged commissioners to look at the big picture, noting the proposed fees will raise development costs so significantly that it will drive away new projects. Besides hurting land owners who want to sell their land, she said, it will also damage the countys potential tax base. On the flip side, others urged commissioners to boost the impact fees to the level recommended by the consultant. They said that residential growth has put a squeeze on the school district and that it cannot keep pace with enrollment demands. Deputy Superintendent Ray Gadd said the district is trying to address the issue before the district has schools at 200 percent capacity, which it has in the past. The answer to solving school overcrowding is not by adding portables.Kids can learn just as well in a portable as they can in a concrete building, Gadd said. But, he noted, the bathrooms, cafeteria, media center and other facilities are built to accommodate a schools permanent capacity.When too many portables are added, he said, the infrastructure in the school building doesnt work. Commissioners appear to be leaning toward an increase, based on their questions and remarks during the public hearing, but it is unclear how much of an increase they will support or when the increase would take effect. Im in favor of doing something, said Commissioner Mike Wells. The issue is affordable housing. Affordable housing is multifamily. I know we need to do something on impact fees, added Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. I do have a concern on these multifamily numbers. If we have a sliding scale on the houses, why are we charging a studio the same price as say, a three-bedroom apartment? That doesnt make sense to me, if its about student generation. It may be possible to have a tiered system for apartments, said David Goldstein, chief assistant county attorney, but he would need to talk with the school boards consultant about it. Were happy to look at the multifamily issue, Gadd said. The second public hearing is set for July 11 at 1:30 p.m., at the historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City.

Merrell was viewed as one of the fastest players in all of college baseball last season. He led the American Athletic Conference with a .384 batting average and became the only player in USF history to lead the team in hitting for three consecutive seasons; he scored 48 runs and stole 19 bases in 2017. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Merrell also displayed gap power last season, notching 11 doubles, three triples and seven home runs. At Steinbrenner, Merrell was a four-year letter winner in baseball for coach John Crumbley; he also lettered in golf and track, where he recorded a 10.6-second, 100meter dash.SPECIAL OLYMPICS PASCO SWIM MEET JULY 15Special Olympics Pasco student-athletes will put their talents on display at the County Aquatics Meet July 15 at 5 p.m., at the New Port Richey Recreation and Aquatic Center, 6630 Van Buren St., New Port Richey. The aquatic athletes, who have trained two months for the event, will compete in a variety of swimming strokes and relays, ranging from 25-meter to 100-meter races. The event also will prepare them for the Area Games, on Aug. 12, in Dunedin. Competing athletes registered prior to the meet and participated in training at a Special Olympics Pasco Site. To become a volunteer for the event, contact Valerie Lundin at (727) 492-8413.Rick O Dette won nearly 500 games coaching baseball in the Midwest now hes looking for similar results down south in Pasco County. O Dette, who coached at Division II Saint Josephs College of Indiana for 17 seasons, was named Saint Leo Universitys new baseball coach on June 15. He replaces Saint Leo alumnus Sean O Connor, who surprisingly was let go after a 23-26 record in 2017 his first losing campaign in five seasons (155-90-1 record).O Dette, 41, most recently steered Saint Josephs to a 35-22 record and the programs fourth berth in the NCAA Midwest Regional despite the knowledge that the university would be suspending all operations following the 2016-2017 academic year.The achievement earned him Great Lakes Valley Conferences 2017 Coach of the Year. He also was selected as HERO Sports Division II Coach of the Year by a fan poll. Other college programs expressed interest in his services, but O Dette picked Saint Leo, calling it a hidden gem among the Division II baseball ranks. Besides the sunny Florida climate, O Dette pointed to Saint Leos conference affiliation (the highly competitive Sunshine State Conference), the universitys facilities and resources, and its academic reputation as key reasons the gig is so attractive. I thought it was an extremely appealing place...that we could win, and win at a high level, he said. Hes done plenty of that. At Saint Josephs College, O Dette amassed a 494-407-4 overall record. In fact, he will begin his first season in the Sunshine State Conference (SSC) ranked fourth among active SSC head coaches in total wins behind University of Tampas Joe Urso (744), Rollins Colleges Jon Sjogren (680), and Barry Universitys Juan Ranero (542). Throughout his 17-year ledger at Saint Josephs, O Dette coached 56 All-GLVC (Great Lakes Valley Conference) selections, 25 All-Region honorees and four Division II All-Americans. Moreover, 24 of his players have gone on to play professional baseball, including eight who were drafted or signed as free agents by Major League Baseball teams. Victories on the diamond arent the only hallmark of O Dettes squads. His players also are known for their classroom success. Every baseball student-athlete that exhausted his eligibility during O Dettes tenure at Saint Josephs College has earned a degree. Additionally, 84 players have earned GLVC Academic All-Conference honors during O Dettes time at the helm of Puma baseball. His most recent squad finished the academic year with a 3.38 team grade point average. Its a trend he plans to continue at Saint Leo. We want to make sure theyre wellrounded, O Dette said. Its just not going to be majoring in baseball, theyre going to have to do something when baseball is over. He continued: We have to recruit the right students. If were chasing that guy to go to class, were wasting time. O Dette, meanwhile, can best be described as a baseball lifer. He was a 15th round pick of the Boston Red Sox in the 1997 MLB First-Year Player Draft, and played at four different levels within the Red Sox organization, until injuries halted his career. He began his coaching career at 23 years old, almost immediately after his playing days ended. O Dette worked as a professional instructor for Championship Sports Academy in Tinley Park, Illinois, as well as the Chicago White Sox Training Center. He spent two summers as the head coach for the Upper Deck Cougars Baseball Organization out of Palos, Illinois, guiding the club to consecutive fourth place finishes at the World Championships. O Dette also spent the 1999-2000 academic year as the pitching coach for Andrean High School in Merrillville, Indiana. In a release, Saint Leo athletic director Francis X. Reidy said O Dette was exactly the type of coach we were looking for in the hiring search. He has proven his ability to develop a program built on academic success, athletic excellence and a commitment to the Division II ideal, and I am confident he will bring Saint Leo baseball back to the upper echelon of Sunshine State Conference baseball, Reidy said. Additionally, several of O Dettes former players expressed support for the hire on Facebook and Twitter, while fans and alums of Saint Josephs College lauded his coaching acumen. The hire also received support from industry leaders in the sport, including University of Illinois head baseball coach Dan Hartleb, the 2015 Big Ten Coach of the Year and National Coach of the Year finalist. Rick O Dette is an outstanding hire for Saint Leo. Hes one of the most respected recruiters in the Midwest and Chicagoland area, Hartleb said, in a statement. He is a tireless worker, develops great relationships with players, with people in the community and from a recruiting standpoint. Rick will develop the same type of recruiting relationships and reputation in Florida in a short amount of time. Rick will do whatever it takes to ethically build Saint Leos program into a national contender. Interestingly, O Dette isnt the first ball coach to make the trek from Rensselaer, Indiana, to east Pasco County. Academy at the Lakes varsity softball coach Diane Stephenson worked for Saint Josephs College in 2014 and 2015. She was hired by Academy at the Lakes in July 2016, and last season she led the private school to a 20-3 mark and the Class 2A regional finals. The Saint Leo baseball program just experienced its first losing season since 2012 a mark newly named head coach Rick O Dette looks to quickly reverse. Throughout the 2016-2017 season, the Lions fared well at the plate (.320 team batting average, 6.6 runs per game), but struggled mightily on the mound (6.56 team ERA, 73 home runs allowed). The Lions 23-26 record (8-16 Sunshine State Conference), can partially be blamed on a rash of injuries and a lack of depth. Obviously, last year they had a lot of injuries on the mound, so were just trying to evaluate the health of each guy, and then our needs. So, getting the pitching staff healthy and adding some depth to it is our first priority, O Dette said, analyzing last years team. Besides strengthening the pitching staff, creating positional stability particularly at catcher is another initial focus for O Dette and his new staff. Theres only one catcher on the roster, so our next thing is to find two catchers that can come in. Ideally, one older, transfer type guy and one high school type, he explained. Just a few reinforcements could make a drastic difference, considering the team lost five games by just one run. Saint Leo appears to have a workable nucleus, led by outfielder/third baseman Dylan Harris, a Land O Lakes High School graduate who paced the team in batting average (.448), on-base percentage (.472), hits (99) doubles (20) and stolen bases (15).Other expected key returnees on offense include rising juniors Brett Coffel (.297 average, seven home runs, 28 RBIs) and Derek Gibree (.323 average, 23 RBIs, nine steals), and seniors Lane Stancil (.317 average, eight doubles, 17 RBIs) and Chase Turner (.323 average, seven doubles, 23 RBIs).Moreover, the pitching staff if healthy has a decent base, and figures to be anchored by a pair of seniors in lefty Tyler Bauman (4.75 ERA, 81 strikeouts in 85.1 innings) and righty Oscar Gordillo (4.26 ERA, 25 strikeouts in 31.2 innings). An early signing recruiting class highlighted by former Land O Lakes High ace McCabe Sargent should help, too. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-hander displayed one of the top arms in Pasco County last season, recording a 1.97 ERA and 84 strikeouts in 67. 2 innings; he also exhibited an elite bat, posting a .455 batting average with four home runs and 28 RBIs. Meanwhile, O Dette will look to bolster Saint Leos roster by pursuing prospects from the high school and junior college ranks, as well as utilizing the Division I and Division II transfer market. Though much of his recruiting ties span major cities such as Chicago and Indianapolis, and states including Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin, O Dette will first strive to make inroads within the Tampa Bay region a collective hotbed of baseball talent. Our goal is to try to get the best player we can out of that area at first, and then try to expand if we need to get the rest, he explained. Theres a lot of really good baseball in (Florida), and were excited to get with those guys. Were going to use every resource we can, no matter where theyre from, he added. The idea is we can sell the weather; the next step, obviously, is to sell the education and the baseball. Once on campus, the Lions new skipper will meet face-to-face with current players, and begin to lay the groundwork for his program, which emphasizes a team-based culture. Perhaps more than ever that can be a challenge, especially with the proliferation of travel ball, baseball showcases, social media and other distractions. Youve got to care about who else is on your team, before you can win, O Dette explained. I think if you put (players) in the right setting and they trust the coaching staff, you can get them to buy into what youre trying to do from a team concept; I think kids will do anything you ask them to do, if you get them to trust you. He added: If you put some structure up there and get them to work within some guidelines, usually youll have some success. Historically, O Dettes rosters at Saint Josephs College of Indiana featured an exciting style of play predicated on pitching and being middle strong defensively largely the catcher, second base, shortstop and center field positions. Youve got to be able to pick the ball up, and youve got to be able to throw strikes, he said. We like to run when we have the right team, and well make adjustments as needed, to make sure that were not stuck in one system with the wrong type of player, especially in the first couple of years.Saint Leo coach seeks to win at a high level COURTESY OF SAINT LEO UNIVERSITY COURTESY OF UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA STEINBRENNER ALUMNUS SIGNS WITH OAKLAND ATHLETICSSteinbrenner High School alumnus and former University of South Florida (USF) shortstop Kevin Merrell has signed with the Oakland Athletics, inking a $1.8 million signing bonus on June 20.
