Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhen Michael Valenti was looking for his Eagle Scout project, he didnÂ’t have to look very far. He belongs to Boy Scout Troop 12, in Lutz, and it meets just a couple of blocks away from the Lutz Memorial Park. The 16-year-old said he had noticed that the Lutz Memorial Park, at 98 First Ave., N.W., needed a bit of sprucing up, and he decided it would be a fitting Eagle Scout project. So, he organized a team of helpers, secured donations and got busy. The base for the flagpole was already there, but it wasnÂ’t in good shape, Valenti said. Â“There was just grass all around here, so when the mowers would come, they would chip out the base,Â” he explained. Â“Some of the paint was peeling off.Â” The plaque wasnÂ’t in great shape, either. Â“We removed the sign, scraped all of the paint off. We repainted it, and we got these two new signs,Â” Valenti said. The new plaques came from Crown Trophy in New Tampa. Before the project began, crews from Hillsborough CountyÂ’s Parks, Recreation andEagle Scout project honors veteransSee SCOUT, page11A B.C. MANION Pasco County Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning is excited about the opportunities that students will have at Bexley Elementa ry School, which is set to open in AugustOpening doors of hope for the homelessBy Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comThe Pasco County Commission has approved funding to renovate a former Boys & Girls Club, and reopen the campus as a navigation center for the countyÂ’s homeless population. An administrative building and a teen center, at 8239 Youth Lane in Port Richey, will be refurbished with about $600,000 in federal and state money. The goal is to open the navigation center by mid-2018. The center will serve as a Â“low-barrierÂ” homeless shelter. Its larger purpose, however, is to find housing for homeless men and women, and deliver support services for job searches, job training, education and health care. It will be the first time the county has opened a homeless shelter, and embarked on such a major initiative. The center is modeled after one in San Francisco. Â“Navigation centers work,Â” Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore said. Â“This is a community effort. This is a peopleÂ’s building. This is a citizenÂ’s building. I need everybody to come together. LetÂ’s pool resources together and get something done.Â” Moore is chairman of the Homeless Advisory Board. Commissioners heard from about a dozen people during public comment. Speakers were passionate, with most of them supporting the navigation center. Suzanne Chicon has volunteered for the annual count of homeless people in Pasco. Among the people she met was a man who lost a good-paying job for health reasons, and a young woman who had aged out of the foster care program. Â“Some of the things I witnessed horrified me,Â” Chicon said. Â“We need the (navigation) center as a focused area to help these people.Â” But, the location of the center is raising alarm bells for some residents who live in the nearby subdivision of CraneÂ’s Roost. Valerie Schaefer told commissioners she had spoken with all but a handful of residents in the 89-home neighborhood. Most are worried about increasing crime, solicitations and lower property values, she said. Â“No one in the neighborhood is against the humanitarian (purpose) of the navigation center,Â” Schaefer said. Â“But, they are concerned. They are very scared. They are very angry over this proposalÂ…We have skin in the game. We live here.Â” Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey supports the navigation center but said, Â“I need a report in a year or two on how itÂ’s going.Â” Only Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano voted against the navigation center. He supports the concept, but not the location. Â“I just donÂ’t like the setup,Â” he said. Pasco has more than 3,000 homeless people based on an annual count. About 500 are considered chronically homeless. Many of the homeless individuals live in about 100 camps identified by the Pasco County SheriffÂ’s Office countywide. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco supports the center. Â“The sheriffÂ’s office cannot solve this problem,Â” he said. Â“ItÂ’s a health care issue, but unfortunately it falls on the shoulders of law enforcement. What the (homeless) coalition wants, weÂ’re going to go with. I think FILEPasco County will dedicate about $600,000 in federal and state grants to rehabilitate the former campus of the Boys & Girls Club on Youth Lane in Port Richey. It will be the site for a navigation center to help homeless people restart their lives.See HOMELESS, page11A By B.C.

Humana Zephyrhills hosted a nutrition talk and cooking demonstration for seniors on June 12, focusing on foods that may help fight the effects of aging. Impacts from aging can include vision and memory loss, decreased brain function, and other chronic health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure. During the interactive discussion, a roomful of guests studied the various health benefits of 10 types of superfoods, including, berries; cold-water, fatty fish; extra-virgin olive oil; dark, leafy greens; nuts and seeds; legumes; whole grains; sweet potatoes; plain yogurt; and, dark chocolate. Superfoods, considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being, are usually rich in antioxidants chemicals believed to help protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Antioxidants are present in foods in the form of vitamins, minerals, flavonoids and polyphenols. Rhea Paul, a Humana health educator, offered numerous tips on incorporating superfoods into daily diets, while highlighting the importance of doing so. Though impossible to completely stop aging, Paul noted superfoods can help slow down the disease process. As a general rule, she said produce in dark, deep, rich, vibrant colors contains the most antioxidants. Blueberries and strawberries, kale and broccoli, and sweet potatoes are some examples. Spinach, turnips and mustard greens are others. You want a rainbow a day when youre eating your food, Paul said. Thats really, really important. Paul explained fresh or frozen opposed to canned or processed fruits and veggies are the ideal option, to avoid added preservatives and other harmful substances. When you get your (fruits), dont get the sweetened kind. You dont want them to have the sugar added to it, Paul advised. You have to be very careful about reading labels. From easy-to-make smoothies and salads, to topping off on cereals, Paul said, the possibilities are endless for incorporating fruits and veggies, daily. Paul also went into detail about other superfoods, including plain, unsalted nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios) and legumes (beans, peas, lentils). Each provide excellent sources of plantbased protein and fiber which Paul noted is lacking in typical American diets. They can seamlessly be supplemented to soups, salads, pastas and crockpot dishes. Theyre economical, too. Its great if youre on a budget, Paul said, because you can get a bag of dried beans, and it could last. Besides preventing age-related issues, the listed superfoods can help lower bad cholesterol levels and stabilize blood sugar levels, to maintain a healthy weight. But, even with all the benefits, Paul warned foods should be eaten in moderation especially high-caloric olive oil and dark chocolate, plus fish, whole grains and yogurt. You dont need a lot, she warned. Paul suggests eating the smallest meal of the day in the evening, and drinking plenty of water to properly absorb vitamins and minerals. She also recommends consulting a doctor regarding the right amount of certain nutrients, before making drastic dietary changes. After the lecture, it was time to cook. Chef Jen Wead, a Zephyrhills-based caterer, exhibited the ease of preparing quick, superfood-based recipes from scratch. She used a compact culinary station equipped with a George Foreman grill and toaster oven to craft a grilled tuna and bean salad, and strawberry-ricotta, wholegrain bruschetta. Both dishes were served in less than 45 minutes combined. And, they were packed with nutrients. Wead operates Catering by The Rose and teaches monthly healthy cooking classes for Humana community locations in Central Florida, including Kissimmee, Port Richey and Spring Hill. She said cooking healthily can be done inexpensively, despite conventional belief. Buying in bulk and purchasing seasonal produce helps keep costs down, she said. The tuna steaks used in the salad recipe, for example, were purchased for less than $2 each. Its not really accurate to say its more expensive to eat healthy, she said. If you do it correctly, it isnt. Eating healthy can also be fun, by putting your own spin on recipes. Wead, for instance, substituted brown sugar with honey and used skim milk ricotta cheese on the bruschetta. She also substituted basil with mint. There are no rules, she stated. Get crazy with it. Wead, meanwhile, provided some tips on cooking for just one or two people. She advises keeping it simple using five ingredients or less per dish, and staying organized keeping a list, and labeling freezer bags and Tupperware. She also suggests following the FIFO (First In, First Out) principle. Make things you dont mind having leftovers the next day, she said. Those looking for healthy recipes, Wead recommends PickledPlum.com, Food.com and FoodNetwork.com. Humana community locations are open to the public Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For information on events, programs and activities at Humanas Zephyrhills location, visit Humana.com/ZephyrhillsCommunity. Using food to fight aging effects KEVIN WEISSWanna-be community gardeners can start making plans to harvest their crops. The Pasco County Commission approved an ordinance on June 20 to establish a definition for a community garden and to create a process for permit applications. This is the countys first community gardening ordinance. Pasco also is the first in the state to approve a countywide ordinance permitting community gardens. Some cities, including New Port Richey, already have such ordinances. Its been a long road, said Matt Armstrong, the countys executive planner for long-range planning. A lot of people worked on this. Its something we believe will strengthen the community. Pasco established a Food Policy Advisory Council more than two years ago. It is just one of three such councils in the state. Volunteer members look at a wide range of issues regarding food access, nutrition and overall food policies that would benefit Pasco residents. The community garden ordinance was the advisory councils first recommendation. The ordinance follows public workshops and meetings to gather input in crafting the ordinance. By definition, community gardens are gardens where crops and ornamental plants, including flowers, are grown and harvested. Daily vehicle trips to tend the gardens generally are more than 14 per day but less than 100, with limited use of heavy vehicles. Permit applications will require information such as location, operating hours, parking availability and a designated garden manager. The community garden ordinance doesnt apply to home gardens or greenbelt agricultural farms. For more information, visit PascoCountyFl.net. Commissioners dig community gardens
Those who grew up in the Girl Scouts, or Boy Scouts, have fond memories of cooking over an open fire. For those of who didnt have those experiences early on, its not too late to join in the fun. Dont be intimidated by your lack of expertise. Here are some fundamentals to help you succeed with campfire cooking. First, be sure to build the right fire in the right place in the right weather! Plan your cookouts on non-windy days to avoid having sparks fly, which can easily spread and create a forest fire. Remember: You dont want a fire that is too hot. Preferably, build your fire in a fire pit, at least 10 feet away from any grass, tree roots or branches that can easily catch on fire. To get your fire started, you can use dry pine needles, dry moss from trees, dryer lint or crumpled newspaper for kindling. Place the kindling under a teepee of similarly sized dry, seasoned oak logs that will burn steadily and longer allowing you to sing songs around the campfire after dinner. (Its best not to use green wood, because it creates smoke and doesnt burn well). After you get your fire started, continue to add one or two logs at a time to keep the fire under control. Once the logs burn down and the coals turn gray with little or no flames it is time to cook. Before you get started, be sure that you have all the right items on hand: pots/pans, aluminum foil, long-handled utensils, heavy duty gloves and hot pads. Skewers are easy for kabobs, hot dogs and marshmallows for Smores! A metal grill/grate works well for steak, hamburgers, chicken under a brick, etc., and those that swing in/out of the way and are adjustable for height are really nice. Dutch ovens work really well for stews and chili, etc. And, in Girl Scouts, we just wrapped many things in heavy-duty aluminum foil packets and placed along the coals, edge of the fire. Here are some safety reminders: Always have a bucket of sand/water or hose on hand to help keep it under control or put it out completely, when you are finished. When you finish cooking and you put out the fire, be sure there are no flames or hissing embers. Stir the ashes to be certain the fire is out. Always practice proper food safety: wash hands often; avoid cross-contamination between raw foods and cooked foods; use a meat thermometer; keep hot foods hot (140 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) and cold foods cold (40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower); and refrigerate leftovers promptly. Always watch kids and family pets around the campfire, to prevent an accident. While its important to take precautions, its also good to remember that campfire cooking can be fun for people of all ages. Children can easily be involved with gathering sticks for kindling, wrapping food in aluminum foil, cooking under supervision and cleaning up. With all of this in mind, here are a few recipes you may want to try.Betsy Crisp is a Professor Emeritus, UF/IFAS Extension Family & Consumer Sciences Simple Campfire tin foil dinner for one INGREDIENTS: Protein (4 ounces to 5 ounces): beef/hamburger patty, venison, chicken breast or fish Starchy vegetable, sliced ( cup of one): potatoes, yams or turnips Vegetables, sliced ( cup total): celery, onion, mushrooms, carrots, green beans, squash, Brussel sprouts Herbs and spices (to taste): salt, pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning, dill, dash of cayenne, etc. Liquid (2 Tablespoons): olive/canola oil/butter, broth, lemon juice, beer/wineINSTRUCTIONS: In the center of two layers of heavy duty aluminum foil (18-inch square, shiny side up), layer the above ingredients in same order as listed.

GreenWise Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Family seeks help for their 5-year-old sonPriscilla Avila-Posey knew early on her son, Julian, was unique from others. He looks like a typical 5-year-old, but suffers from many severe developmental and medical issues. He has a rare micro-chromosome deletion that has been diagnosed as autism. He is stuck mentally at the level of a toddler. He suffers from mixed expressive receptive language disorder, auditory processing disorder, sensory processing disorder and severe anxiety. He cannot talk, potty train, dress himself or brush his teeth. He cannot attend school, either. For treatment, Julian sees multiple therapists speech, occupational, physical and applied behavioral analysis totaling about 46 hours each week. But, thats not enough. To develop the skills he needs for a normal life, additional therapy is needed at the familys Zephyrhills home, his mother said. However, the familys insurance plan wont cover the therapeutic equipment thats needed. Avila-Posey was forced to quit her parttime job in 2014 in order to care for Julian. Her husband, Mike, works full-time. To help with the familys financial needs, Avila-Posey created a GoFundMe page in May. She set a goal of $3,000 to purchase eight items, ranging from a sensory pod to a therapeutic listening program. She didnt expect any donations. But, by June 30, more than $1,300 had been raised. Donations have poured in from friends, family members, and former teachers at Zephyrhills High School. Even perfect strangers have pitched in. It was very nice to see the reaction we got, and to see that people cared, AvilaPosey said. It makes me happy, because I know somebody is taking time out of their day to think about him. Already, the Posey family has used funds to purchase a Yogibo, for deep sensory input; a platform swing and stand, for sensory integration; and, a bubble column, used as a calming mechanism during therapy. We didnt want people to think that were just asking for money, Avila-Posey said. Were fine with donations, secondhand if anybody even wanted to have us purchase them at like a cheaper rate or reused, were all for that. Besides cognitive handicaps, Julian also has numerous health problems. Perhaps the worst is erythromelalgia, a rare condition characterized by episodes of pain, redness and swelling in various parts of the body, particularly the hands and feet. The episodes are usually triggered by increased body temperature, which may be caused by exercise or entering a warm room. In the Florida heat, especially the summer, Julian can only be outside for a few minutes at a time before symptoms arise. He has to play somewhere where theres A/C, in order to be physically active, Avila-Posey explained. Julian also suffers from asthma, acid reflux, chronic constipation, chronic sinusitis, allergies, an immune system deficiency and gait disturbance. All told, Julian sees over eight specialists for his health issues, and has already undergone six surgeries. He goes to doctors appointments all over the place from Zephyrhills to Odessa, to St. Petersburg and Orlando. If its not one thing, its literally the other, Avila-Posey said. Its been like nonstop. He almost doesnt catch a break. Avila-Posey acknowledges there are bad days, when her son screams and cries endlessly with no solution to console him. Its so sad, she said, because it almost makes you think youre not doing something right because you cant fix it. Formerly a childcare day care professional, Avila-Posey had experience working with special needs adolescents. That, she said, has made caring for her son a lot less scary. Still, it breaks her heart to see him struggle. The hardest obstacle, she said, is Julians limited understanding. Some days he doesnt know what youre saying to him, she said. Forming a bond with Julian wasnt automatic from birth. I had to earn that, Avila-Posey explained. It took years to form that bond, and its super strong now. I feel like that makes it even more special, because I had to work for it. It wasnt unconditional. It is now, but I had to establish that. For the most part, Julian is a happy, funloving boy. Its evident when he visits entertainment centers like Chuck E. Cheeses, Bangin Bungee Kidz Zone and 2Infinity Extreme Air Sports. He also gets a kick out of movie monsters, dinosaurs, minions and superheroes, Avila-Posey said. Hes got a cute little sense of humor, she said, joyfully. Hes got like 20 different laughs. Meanwhile, her sons various obstacles create a whole new perspective on life. It almost humbles you a little bit, AvilaPosey said. It makes you step back and take a check at your attitude, like, Really, what are you complaining about today? Is your day that hard? In caring for Julian, Avila-Posey takes one day at a time, finding ways to make his life easier. She also maintains her faith in him, regardless what others may say. Sometimes youre your only childs advocate and cheerleader, she said. Always be their voice. KEVIN WEISS

Dana attributes much of CornerstoneÂs success to being a woman-owned business. ÂWomen understand that nothing is more important than being customer centered. ItÂs the little things that we do in the first 30 seconds that sets the tone for exceeding customer expectations,ÂŽ said Dana. ÂWhen people call, they assume we have the technical expertise to solve their problem,ÂŽ she continues. ÂWhat they remember is how they felt when they first talked to our customer service rep, or first met our technician at their door. ItÂs the kind, helpful voice, the clean uniform and shoe covers, the tech who focuses on them and not their phone, that sets us apart.ÂŽ Every Cornerstone employee is trained to the companyÂs high customer service standards.

The Wesley Chapel Noon Rotary Land O Lakes Satellite Club recognized George Voorhes on June 23 as its first recipient of the Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemorative Lapel Pin. Voorhes, 82, retired from the army in 1974, following 20 years of service. He served in the Korean War and had three tours of duty in Vietnam, earning a Bronze Star. A Missouri native, who now lives in Land O Lakes, Voorhes joined the military when he was 17. Eventually, he rose to the rank of Sergeant First Class E7. Along the way, he worked as a banker, chef and nightclub manager. During his last 10 years of service, he was a generals aide. Despite the decades that have passed, details of war remain vivid in Voorhes mind. Most notably is the passing of his brother-in-law, who succumbed to Agent Orange. I miss him, Voorhes said, holding back tears. He was only a brother-in-law, but he was more like a brother to me, he said. The first U.S. combat troops were sent to Vietnam in 1965. More than 9 million Americans served during the Vietnam War, representing 10 percent of their generation. They marked the oldest and best-educated force that America ever sent into harms way. The last remaining troops were withdrawn in 1973. Though 97 percent would be honorably discharged, 58,307 service members died in the war, and more than 1,600 are still considered missing in action. Upon their return to America, Vietnam troops often were greeted with silence or worse for having served in the controversial war. Unlike soldiers returning from World War I and World War II, there were no ticker tape parades or triumphant marches for veterans returning from Vietnam. Despite painful memories and personal losses, though, Voorhes remains proud of his service. Its an honor to serve my country, he said, and Id do it again, if I had to. The Rotary Clubs commemorative ceremony and breakfast was held at the Copperstone Executive Suites in Land O Lakes. Voorhes received the Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemorative Lapel Pin from Chief George McDonald, of the Pasco Sheriffs Office. McDonald is a retired U.S. Army Special Forces Colonel. Throughout the hour-long event, Voorhes was lavished with applause, warm greetings and countless thank-yous from dozens of Rotarians and their guests. Voorhes also received a dedication message and certificate form the staff of U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis. The congressman, who represents Floridas 12th District and is vice chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, even had an American flag flown over the United States Capitol to honor Voorhes service. In a letter to Voorhes, Bilirakis wrote, There are no words that can adequately express the gratitude, admiration and respect that your military service during the Korean and Vietnam Wars has earned.The congressman also noted that members of the Armed Forces who served bravely during the Vietnam War were caught in the crossfire of public debate regarding our nations involvement and did not receive the warm welcome that you all deserved.The Vietnam War Commemoration is a government-led initiative, engaging 10,000 event partners, ranging from the Boy Scouts of America to the NFL. In 2012, President Barack Obama signed a proclamation creating the Vietnam War Commemoration. Obama called on communities across the country to come together and hold events between then and Veterans Day 2025 to recognize the 7 million living Vietnam veterans. To date, the commemoration has reached more than 1.4 million Vietnam veterans and their family members. Voorhes was chosen as the Rotary Clubs first recipient after his wife of 57 years, Jean Voorhes, reached out to the service organization, inquiring about the program. The satellite Rotary Club had just recently become an official commemoration partner, through the United States Department of Defense. That application process took about a year, said Sandy Graves, a member of the satellite club who helped coordinate the ceremony for Voorhes. The clubs worked very hard to become a commemorative partner with the government and do these ceremonies for Vietnam vets that kind of didnt get that when they came home, Graves said. Moving forward, the Wesley Chapel Noon Rotary Land O Lakes Satellite Club plans to organize two Vietnam Commemoration ceremonies each year. Graves said the satellite club will likely host a dinner ceremony sometime this fall, to honor multiple Rotarians that served in Vietnam. Its a wonderful thing, Graves said of the Vietnam commemoration program. My father served in the military, I have many friends that served in the military and every night I would just implore everyone to, when you do lay down to go to sleep, think about how come youre able to do that, and be very thankful for those that made (freedom) possible for us.Vietnam veteran receives overdue honor KEVIN WEISS COURTESY OF SANDY GRAVES

Closer Look an advertiser Profile Computer Problems? Network Needs? Call Scott Hatch Â„ Experienced, Fast & Personable Special to The Laker / Lutz News Scott Hatch understands how intimidating and confusing computers are for many people. And thatÂs why he prides himself for being able to talk to customers about their computer problems and needs at a level that they understand. ÂItÂs unfortunate that 90 percent of computer technicians have difficulty explaining a computer problem and solution in language that regular people understand,ÂŽ said Hatch. ÂWhich means, after they leave, the customer often has no idea what was done, and then are very frustrated if the problem happens again.ÂŽ This is never the situation with Hatch, who operates SB Hatch Computer Services in Wesley Chapel. ÂMy first goal is to always make someone feel comfortable with me,ÂŽ said Hatch. ÂWhether it's the CEO of a company, or an entry-level employee, I know how to communicate so they do not feel intimidated and are at ease asking me questions.ÂŽHatch has been working on computers for over 30 years. In the 1970s, before there were even PCs, he immersed himself in computer technology. He even predicted back then that someday every home would have a computer. Hatch joined the Army in 1982, working in field artillery, and was the only person in his barracks who had a computer. He began taking classes in programming, and when he was discharged from the Army seven years later, quickly found work in the data processing department of a New Hampshire hospital. From there, Hatch was recruited by a Fortune 500 company and moved to Colorado, where he worked for 20 years until last August, when he moved to Wesley Chapel to set up his own business. ÂI always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and my wife wanted to live in Florida,ÂŽ said Hatch. ÂWe chose Wesley Chapel because of its booming economy, proliferation of home-based businesses and the many suburban neighborhoods with families needing help with technology,ÂŽ said Hatch. Hatch identifies himself as a good listener, which is why 90 percent of his business comes from repeat customers. ÂWhile competency is of course important, what my clients appreciate most is that I truly listen to their needs and then explain in language they understand, what needs to be done. Plus, I focus on solving the issues they called about, without trying to upsell other services,ÂŽ he said. In addition to working with families, much of HatchÂs work is with small businesses, in particular medical practices and legal offices. He offers the same technical services found in larger IT companies. ÂThe difference is that I touch every customer and personally advise them,ÂŽ said Hatch. ÂPlus, because I purposely keep my business small and overhead low, my rates are very affordable.ÂŽ SB Hatch Computer Services charges a flat $50 an hour. And, unlike many IT companies, there is no trip charge. When someone calls for service, an appointment is typically scheduled within a day or two. Hatch is currently offering families and businesses a free Wi-Fi analysis and wireless speed check Â„ a $100 value. Many people complain that their Wi-Fi coverage is inconsistent and spotty in different rooms. With businesses and families depending on cell phones and digital devices more and more, improving Wi-Fi reception makes a huge difference in productivity. ÂWi-Fi makes sense for consumers and businesses because they donÂt have to buy extra hardware. Set up properly, Wi-Fi can meet security requirements, including HIPAA regulations,ÂŽ said Hatch.

Call Maid Brigade 813-961-5900 813-961-5900 By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comPasco County commissioners are scheduled to set a preliminary property tax rate, known as a millage rate, at their July 11 meeting in Dade City. The meeting starts at 10 a.m., at the Pasco County Historic Courthouse, at 37918 Meridian Ave. The rate determines how much revenue the county can collect in property taxes for fiscal year 2018. That information must be provided to the Pasco County Property AppraiserÂ’s Office in time to print and mail out annual TRIM (Truth-in-Millage) notices in August to property owners. At a June 13 workshop, county commissioners looked at a proposed 2018 budget presented by Pasco County Administrator Dan Biles. The approximately $1.3 billion budget fell short of meeting commissionersÂ’ objectives. They agreed to a list of new budget items, including restoration of library hours, upgrades at some parks, new ambulance purchases, and a third-year of promised salary increases to Pasco County deputies. To cover expenses, commissioners chose to use about $7.6 million in reserve funds while maintaining the current millage rate. A mill equals $1 in taxes per $1,000 in taxable value. For example, a property owner would pay $100 in taxes based on a 1 mill rate and property with a $100,000 taxable value. In calculating the taxable value, the county applies qualifying deductions and exemptions. For the general fund, the millage rate currently is about $7.60 per $1,000 of property value. For the fire district, the rate is about $1.80 per $1,000. Some property owners still could see small increases in their taxes based on a 2.1 percent increase in overall property values. Two public hearings must be held before a final vote on the 2018 budget, and the millage rate, in September. The fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. Once county commissioners give initial approval to the millage rate, it canÂ’t be increased prior to the final budget vote. Commissioners could, however, choose to decrease the rate.P a scoÂ’s propert y t a x r a te is up for vote Save $761.*Combine Home & Auto. *Average household savings based on 2015 national survey of new policyholders who reported savings by switching to State Farm.State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, State Farm Indemnity Company, State Farm Fire and Casualty Company, State Farm General Insurance Bloomington, IL J o -z Wil der, State Farm Agent 23604 State R oa d 54 L ut z, FL 33559-6778813-616-JAKE (5253)j o -z@mywild era g e n t co m Save money and time when you combine your home and auto insurance.

The team, ShiftCycle EyeWear, was one of 50 national finalists teams. The competition, a collaboration between the National Sleep Foundation and the National Science Teachers Association, encourages students (grades six to eight) to explore the correlation between light and sleep, and how it influences student health and performance. According to Bright Schools website, ShiftCycles winning project, ShiftCycle EyeWear identified a problem in their community and developed a prototype to help the estimated 15 million U.S. night-shift workers stay alert while on the job and realign their circadian rhythm, so that they can get better sleep after work. ShiftCycles eyewear offers green-blue light therapy and features electro-chromic polymer lenses that block blue light and bright light at the right times. Students had to identify, investigate, and research the issue using scientific inquiry or engineering design concepts to develop a prototype, create an awareness campaign, or write a research proposal for the competition. Projects were evaluated on the basis of several criteria, including scientific accuracy, innovativeness and potential impact. Information about the competition and winners can be found at BrightSchoolsCompetition.org.LEADERSHIP PROGRAM GETS TOP HONORSLeadership Saint Leo, the universitys program to develop and train leaders, was honored at the LEAD2017 forum hosted by HR.com in Nashville, Tennessee.

When the tour-takers finished that visit, most of them drove across county to visit Cypress Creek Middle High School to get a sneak preview of that campus led by Principal Carin Hetzler-Nettles. Bexley which will relieve overcrowding at Odessa and Oakstead elementary schools is the largest elementary school that Pasco County Schools has ever built, said John Petrashek, director of construction services for the district. Its design was a result of collaboration between architect Harvard Jolly, four elementary principals and David Scanga, assistant superintendent for elementary schools, Petrashek said. That team told the district, this is what we need to make this a very functioning, high-performing elementary school, the construction services director said. We listened. We designed They didnt get everything they wanted, but just about, he said. The resulting elementary school is rich for teaching, learning and for achievement, Petrashek said. The district aims to be as frugal as possible when building new schools, but doesnt cut corners when it comes to the quality of construction and design, Petrashek said. This building is built to last. You can pay for a building and good design now, or you can cheapen this design and pay forever out of operational costs for maintenance and repair, he said. This building has a 50-year life expectancy.Petrashek praised Newland Communities, the developer of the Bexley subdivision, for being tremendous partners.Newland ensured that the site was large enough to meet the districts needs and also made sure that needed infrastructure was available, Petrashek said. Pasco County Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning is enthusiastic about the new school. We expect great things to come out of Bexley Elementary School, Browning said. Its a beautiful place. Its obviously very functional, and it will lend itself to a great learning environment for kids. Wolin noted the emphasis was on collaboration, efficiency of space and flexibility. We wanted something that was timeless, so it would be efficient in the future, she said. For instance, there are stools that can break apart into smaller seats, and also be adjusted so that they rock. We want to offer our students seating areas that best meet their needs for learning, instead of: Sit down and sit still, Wolin said. The building also is designed with spaces that can shrink or expand, allowing grade-level teams to work together and enabling teachers to tailor instruction to meet the varying needs of students. The technology also offers flexibility. For instance, the same piece of equipment can be used to show a video or to be an interactive tool, depending on what a teacher needs for a particular lesson, Wolin said. Even the schools large front office is designed with families in mind, the principal said, noting it is more spacious than the typical front office at an elementary school. The idea is to give families more room as they wait to take care of school business. At Cypress Creek Middle High School, at 8701 Old Pasco Road in Wesley Chapel, Hetzler-Nettles led the group around the campus, which initially will serve students in grades six through 11. Much of the furniture and equipment has yet to be installed, but, like Bexley, the school will have different types of seating and spaces that can be reconfigured for different uses. Stops on the tour included a science classroom, the school gymnasium, the cafeteria, the weight room, locker rooms, a band room, a conference room, various other classrooms and a look at the athletic fields. For parents and students who want to see for themselves, Cypress Creek Middle High will be holding two events, designed for students in different age groups.

Commissioners gave initial approval to the funding and the location for the center on June 20 in New Port Richey. A final vote on the project is scheduled for July 11 in Dade City.The funds would be dispersed after Oct. 1.Commissioners will be asked in September to transfer the county property to the Homeless Coalition of Pasco, which will manage the navigation center. The goal is to work with one camp at a time. Homeless individuals would live at the navigation center on average about 90 days, said Raine Johns, the coalitions chief executive director. They would be given wrap-around services, and personalized case management for about 12 months, through a coalition of partners, including United Way of Pasco and the Pasco County Housing Authority. As many as 75 single adult men and women would be housed at the center. They would get help in finding jobs, job training, education and health care. Housing is a priority. The countys housing authority has pledged 75 housing vouchers to the program. There is such a big change in a persons life when he does have a place to live, Johns said. Homeless people are living in cars and in the woods, she added. You are creating a cycle of poverty because people dont have a safe place to live. Conservation Department removed some concrete. Then, Valenti and his volunteers went to work. We laid the concrete, then we planted this large flower box around it, he said. The volunteers also built a flower box near the Lutz Memorial Park sign. The teenager wanted plants that could tolerate the sun, the rain and the drought. In other words, he was looking for low-maintenance plants that could survive in sandy soil, he said. Since he wasnt sure what would be best, he turned to gardening experts for advice. He settled on blue salvia, pink guara and firebush. Over the course of two weekends, we had more than 40 people, he said, including several members of Troop 12 and friends from Freedom High School. Several local businesses helped out, too. Johns Butcher Shop and Benedettos (Ristorante Italiano) provided the food, he said. People allowed us to use their facilities, like their water and their bathrooms, he said. It would have been about $2,000 with everything, including food and whatnot, but Lowes and Home Depot gave us significant discounts, he said. Ace Hardware, in Lutz, helped, too. Earning the Eagle Scout is gratifying, said Valenti, who lives in Lutz, and is the son of Ron and Rose Valenti. Its kind of the pinnacle of your scouting career. Its taken years of hard work to get where I am, said the teenager, who will be a junior at Freedom High School. And, its an accomplishment with staying power, he noted. Once youre an Eagle, youre an Eagle for life. Valenti was a third-grader when he joined scouts, and he hopes he will become a scout leader when hes an adult. It just ingrains very important values, he said, and prepares youths to become good citizens. Besides being an Eagle Scout, Valenti has earned 48 scouting badges and is a member of the Order of the Arrow, scoutings national honor society.While he does well in school and plans to attend a state college, he hasnt pinned down which career path hed like to pursue. B.C. MANION COURTESY OF RON VALENTI
The 2017 football season is two months away, but one of Pasco Countys top teams already has taken a hit. In a weeks span, two varsity standouts from Wiregrass Ranch High School cornerback Shamaur McDowell and quarterback/safety Raymond Woodie III have exited the rising program, which last season finished Class 7A, District 8 runnerup, making its first playoff appearance since 2010. On June 16, Woodie III, a 6-foot-2, 185pound junior, announced he was enrolling at Sheldon High School in Eugene, Oregon, a move that allows him to reconnect with his father, an assistant football coach at the University of Oregon. ...I would like to thank everyone at Wiregrass for taking me in and giving me the opportunity to be successful on and off the football field, Woodie III said, in a statement. I will forever be grateful to the coaches and players, and wish them nothing but the best this season. With that being said, my family and I have decided it is best for me to move out to Oregon with them and attend Sheldon High School. Just four days later, McDowell, a 5-foot-11, 184-pound senior, announced his intention to transfer to IMG Academy, a boarding school and sport-training destination in Bradenton. My parents and I felt like it was the best decision, McDowell said, in a statement. It will allow me to focus on being the best student-athlete I can be. It will also prepare me for the next stage in my life. Both are widely regarded as elite prospects for their respective classes. And, noteworthy losses for Wiregrass Ranch, which figures to be one of the better teams in Pasco in 2017. Woodie III, who landed at Wiregrass Ranch after transferring from Carrollwood Day School in the offseason, is rated by 247Sports as a three-star prospect and the nations eighth-best dual-threat quarterback for the 2019 class, and boasts scholarship offers from over 20 Division I football programs. McDowell, a three-year varsity player for the Bulls and verbal commit to the University of Minnesota, is rated by 247Sports as a three-star prospect and ranked among the states top 300 players for the 2018 class; he also holds scholarship offers from nearly 20 Division I schools. For McDowell, the transfer to IMG Academy offers an opportunity to further enhance his skills, and raise his national profile. The academy, ranked as the top prep program in Florida, typically plays a national schedule. This season, IMG Academy (11-0 in 2016) will play games in Arizona, California, Maryland, Washington D.C., Utah, Alabama and Virginia, facing some of the nations other top prep football schools. Throughout the school year, McDowell will receive training inside state-of-the art facilities from a staff of full-time coaches, trainers and nutritionists. He will also compete alongside other top talent IMGs entire roster is actively recruited by FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) schools. Meanwhile, the Bulls remain stockpiled with impact players, even with the two departures. It all starts with senior defensive back Jordan Miner. The four-star prospect is ranked one of the states top 50 players for the 2018 recruiting class, and claims nearly 30 Division I scholarship offers, including Penn State University, University of Maryland, University of North Carolina and University of Tennessee, among others. Last season for the Bulls, the 6-foot-1, 177pound Miner tallied 38 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, three interceptions and 12 passes defensed. He also racked up nearly 500 all-purpose yards on offense, defense and special teams. Besides Miner, the Bulls have numerous players with standing college scholarships offers, including wide receiver/safety Daniel Biglow (Fort Lewis College), safety/running back Kwesi Littlejohn (Webber International University), tight end/defensive end Devaun Roberts (Warner University, Webber International) and wide receiver/slot back Adrian Thomas (Webber International). The return of 1,000-yard rusher Da Da McGee and a potential breakout campaign from junior quarterback Grant Sessums should also help mask the exodus of Woodie III and McDowell. Save for anymore unforeseen departures from the program, the Bulls look to build on last seasons success, under third-year coach Mark Kantor. Kantor, who previously coached at Hudson High School, orchestrated an impressive turnaround from 2015 (2-8 record) to 2016 (7-3 record). But, the upcoming season wont be easy. Besides facing tough district opponents like Plant, Gaither and Wharton high schools, the Bulls kick off the 2017 slate against nondistrict opponents Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel and Sunlake high schools which went a combined 22-7 last season. The challenging schedule may come in handy near playoff time, however. The Florida High School Athletic Associations new playoff system for football stresses strength of schedule, along with overall record. After the four district champs in Class 7A, Region 2, the other four playoff teams will be determined by a points-based system. In preparation for the rigors of a demanding 2017 schedule, Kantor arranged a May 19 spring game against Tampa Catholic (33-27 loss) and Aug. 18 preseason classic against Clearwater Central Catholic (9-2 record in 2016).

According to 247Sports, Dumont is one of the nations top 100 offensive tackle prospects for the 2018 football recruiting class.

Saint Leo Universitys head womens golf coach Tommy Baker has resigned from his role at the university to accept an assistant coaching position at Colorado State University, a Division I program in Fort Collins, Colorado. Baker exits Saint Leo after four seasons, having turned the Lions into a top-10 program over the past two seasons. All of us at Saint Leo are grateful for Coach Bakers contributions to the growth of the womens golf program and to our overall womens athletics program, Saint Leo athletic director Francis X. Reidy said, in a release. He has laid a great foundation for the future growth of Saint Leo womens golf, and we will now look for a successor to build on Tommys work over the last four years. Tommy has been a tremendous asset to our department, and I wish him all the best in his new role at Colorado State. The Lions qualified for the NCAA South Super Regional in each of Bakers four seasons at the helm. His 2015-16 squad earned the programs first team qualifier into the national championship and finished in a tie fourth place, while Saint Leo produced individual qualifiers in 2014 and 2017. Baker coached senior Marie Coors, Division IIs top-ranked player throughout much of 2016-2017, to the individual title at the 2017 NCAA Division II Womens Golf Championship in Findlay, Ohio Saint Leos first NCAA national championship, team or individual, in womens athletics. Coors capped the season by earning 2017 Womens Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) Division II Player of the Year honors, as well as being named the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Division II Academic All-America of the Year in the At-Large category, and the Division II Honda Athlete of the Year nominee in womens golf. Coors was one of three WGCA AllAmericans who was coached by Baker over his four seasons at Saint Leo, two of whom he recruited. Also during Bakers time as head coach, the Lions four-player team stroke average dropped from 309.59 in his first season down to 297.64 in 2016-17, and Saint Leos 74.46 adjusted scoring average in 2016-17 was fourth lowest in all of Division II according to GolfStat. I have enjoyed my time at Saint Leo University and feel extremely grateful for the knowledge and friendships that I have gained over the past four years. I am forever grateful for the opportunity the university provided me, said Baker. I want to personally thank Dr. Arthur Kirk and Dr. William Lennox (former and current Saint Leo presidents), Fran Reidy, and the Saint Leo community for allowing and trusting me to be an influential part of the daily lives of our student-athletes. I wish the university, the athletics department, and the Saint Leo womens golf program continued success. Prior to Saint Leo, Baker served as the head golf coach at Coker College, in Hartsville, South Carolina, and assistant golf coach at University of North CarolinaPembroke.

The group meets at the library, at 4347 Eighth St., on Tuesdays, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This is just one of many programs offered at the library, said Peggy Panak, the librarys acting director. The events calendar shows a wide range of programs offered throughout the month, including help with career searches, gardening, crafts, cooking, good health and other topics. The librarys hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to noon. To find out more about what this branch offers, go to PascoLibraries.org, and search the events calendar for the Zephyrhills branch. Explore your inner artist on Tuesday afternoons FRED BELLET

HISPANIC LEADERS LUNCHThe Hispanic Business Leaders of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce will host a Hispanic Business Leaders Luncheon, open to all chamber members and guests, July 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Land OÂ’ Lakes Community Center, 5401 Land OÂ’ Lakes Blvd. Guest speaker will be Carolina Howard of Innova4change. Her topic will be Â“The Missing Link: Frontline Managers Training.Â” The cost is $20 for chamber members at the door, or $15 if preregistered by July 13. For non-members, the cost is $20, and they can preregister or pay at the door. For information, email Ignacio Ruiz at email@example.com.MICROLOAN PROGRAMThe Pasco Economic Development Council can help small business owners through its SMARTstart Microloan Fund. These loans are targeted at small business owners who may not qualify for traditional financing, but who have a sound plan to grow their business. Microloans can be used for working capital, inventory, supplies, furniture, fixtures, machinery and other equipment. Funds canÂ’t be used to buy real estate or to refinance an existing debt. The microloan fund seeks to increase job opportunities and build the economy. In particular, it can aid business owners who have difficulty accessing credit, such as women, minorities, veterans and disabled individuals. For more information, call the Pasco EDC at (813) 926-0827, or you can visit SmartstartPasco.com.
