Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhen students arrive at Land O’ Lakes High School next week, they’ll see construction crews busy on a $29 million makeover that’s expected to take two years. But, great care is being taken to ensure that students and staff are kept out of the path of work crews, and vice versa, said John Petrashek, director of construction services for Pasco County Schools. During a recent tour of the school, Petrashek and Marc Graham, project superintendent for Walbridge, explained what the project entails and how it has been scheduled to allow the campus to be occupied during construction. “It’s a five-phase project,” Graham said, with areas being walled or fenced off, to allow students, faculty and staff to carry on their activities, while crews work to modernize and reconfigure spaces in the high school. By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comPasco County building inspectors have condemned five additional homes — because of recent destabilization of a sinkhole on Ocean Pines Drive in Land O’ Lakes. Pasco County officials say the sinkhole grew another 30 feet, to a diameter of around 260 feet, after a bank on the western edge—closest to Lake Saxon — collapsed between the evening of Aug. 3 and the morning of Aug. 5. Previously, the sinkhole measured between 225 feet wide to 235 feet wide and approximately 50 feet deep. The recent destabilization may have resulted from seismic vibrations caused by heavy construction equipment operating nearby the site, according to Kevin Guthrie, the assistant county administrator for public safety. Unstable sinkhole claims 7 homesSee SINKHOLE, page11A By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comThe next phase in a transportation vision for Tampa Bay took a local turn into Pasco County. More than 30 residents from Pasco and Hernando counties met on Aug. 3 as a “working group” tasked with recommending future transportation decisions. The Florida Department of Transportation hosted the event at the Myrtle Lake Baptist Church in Land O’ Lakes. The Community Working Group session was open to the public. It is one in a series of meetings in the Tampa Bay region as part of the Tampa Bay Next initiative. A regional meeting in Tampa kicked off the new initiative in May. There are six working groups in total, representing geographic areas of the region. Tampa Bay Next replaces the controversial Tampa Bay Express project that would have built new toll and express lanes along about 90 miles of Interstate 275, from Manatee County to Pasco County. One segment of the project remains. The state transportation department See MAKEOVER page11A Task Force meets on vision for SR 54/56By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comA discussion on transportation solutions on the State Road 54/56 corridor will begin anew on Aug. 24, with the second in a series of meetings by the Vision 54/56 Task Force. The 17-member, volunteer task force had an organizational meeting in April.The study by the task force members will consider practical solutions to easing congestion, and promoting greater safety and mobility on a corridor that is bursting with new residential and commercial development.This is the second phase of a three-part initiative that began in 2016 with a task force that recommended 11 major highway and transit alternatives, as well as a no-build alternative. Those recommendations will get greater scrutiny in this second phase, with more focus on design and details of potential road projects. Some options under review include designs for elevated lanes, and redesigns at ground level. Some options include dedicated lanes for buses, and others don’t. The entire study includes the corridor, from Bruce B. Downs Boulevard on the east to U.S. 19 on the west. However, the focus currently is on two intersections: Little Road and State Road 54 in New Port Richey, and U.S. 41 and State Road 54 in Land O’ Lakes. Representatives from Pasco County Planning and Development, the county’s Metropolitan Planning Organization, Florida Department of Transportation and consultants with AECOM are assisting in the study. A third meeting is planned in 2017, probably in October. At least two additional meetings are planned in 2018, but no dates are scheduled. For information, visit B.C. MANIONMarc Graham, project superintendent for Walbridge, is overseeing the massive makeover of Land O Lakes High School. Here, he describes how the company is converting an old stage area in the schools gymnasium, that was being used for storage, into two classrooms, which will be used for physical education classes. RICHARD K. RILEYEd McKinney, planning and environmental administrator for the Florida Department of Transportations District 7 office, in Tampa, met with more than 30 residents from Pasco and Hernando counties to talk about Tampa Bay Next. The initiative seeks to develop a transportation plan for Interstate 275. COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTYCeres Environmental Services, the main debris removal contractor, worked throughout much of the weekend on cleanup and recovery efforts. Besides debris removal and disposal, Ceres will pump and remove contaminated water, and stabilize the sinkhole as needed with granular fill, over the next several weeks.Land O’ Lakes High undergoes $29 million makeoverShaping a vision for transportation in PascoSee VISION, page11A WHAT: Vision 54/56 Phase 2 Task Force meetingWHERE: Pasco County Utilities Administration Building, 19420 Central Blvd., Land O’ Lakes WHEN: Aug. 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.COST: Free, open to the public Kris Hughes, Pascos director of planning and development, gave an overview of efforts to find solutions to area traffic problems.

The park also would get upgrades at its basketball courts and baseball fields. In addition, the budget would provide money for a future district park at the master-planned community of Connerton in Land O Lakes. A first public hearing on the budget is scheduled for Sept. 13 in Dade City. The second hearing and vote are planned on Sept. 26. The approved budget would take effect on Oct. 1. At the Wesley Chapel park, about $2 million would pay for the design and cover for four outdoor basketball courts, and the installation of 12 bleacher canopies for baseball fields. Also, the design for an approximately 4,000-square-foot community center would be completed in 2018. Construction is scheduled in fiscal year 2019, at a cost of about $1 million. The Connerton District Park would receive about $2.5 million, as part of a park donation agreement between Pasco and Connertons developer. Construction would include athletic fields and other amenities. The park would be donated to the county, but the developer would operate and maintain it, according to county records. No construction date is available. FILE Park upgrades planned for 2018 COURTESY OF PATRICIA SERIO The Plant Lady steps up once more A new initiative between Hillsborough County Public Schools and the Hillsborough County Library Cooperative will bring library resources to more than 200,000 students, without the need to carry a library card. The Pew Research Center has found that 85 percent of Americans would like to have a library that works closely with local schools. About half of low-income children have very few, if any, books in their home. The HAAL Pass program will enable students to use their student ID number (and a default PIN number) instead of a traditional public library card to access online databases and research tools, read eBooks, and borrow up to three physical items from any Hillsborough County public library branch, with no overdue fines or lost book fees. HAAL stands for Hillsborough All Access Libraries. Students also will be able to get live homework help from, take practice tests using the Learning Express Library, and use public library computers to type papers and create presentations. All Hillsborough County Public Schools students, kindergarten through 12th grade, will be automatically enrolled in the program. Charter schools are included, too.Parents may opt their child out of the HAAL Pass by visiting Students who opt out will not be able to access public library resources in the classroom unless they have a standard Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative card and know the full card number and PIN.For information, call (813) 273-3652.Library resources at students fingertips COURTESY OF HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS

The kitchen in your home can be a great learning space, too. You can help your children think of it as a laboratory, and cooking can become one big tasty experiment. Depending on their age and ability, they can wash fruits and vegetables, cut them into pieces, and package and label them to have on hand to have as a snack when they get home from school. While they are learning about food safety and food preparation at home, you can also build on nutrition lessons they get at school. Keep in mind the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s MyPlate icon and the guidelines on how much to eat from each food group when you are planning and serving food. Healthy snacks including fruits and vegetables are an easy way to complete your daily plan to achieve a balanced diet. Growing young minds and bodies need fuel throughout the day to stay well, grow strong and be ready to learn. Healthy snacks keep them going between meals. Plan ahead to prepare the snacks and have them readily available. This will help your children make the right lifestyle choices now, and also later in life. The following guidelines will help:  Practice preparing the snacks with your children; as they become more proficient they can make them on their own.  Teach them to use measuring cups or the proper size of containers, to practice portion control.  Don’t overlook food safety. Wash your hands. Wash the dishes and wipe off the counter. Here are some practical snack ideas:  Trail mix. This is one of my favorites because it is so easy to make and doesn’t need refrigeration. Using a mix of whole grain cereals, dried fruits, and nuts will add more fiber to your child’s diet. If you want to go to some extra effort, you can portion and package the trail mix attractively, using snack bags and pipe cleaners to make butterflies.  Other easy snacks include hard-cooked eggs, reduced-fat cheese (cheddar, string cheese, etc.) and crackers, and peanut butter on celery, or apple slices, topped with a row of raisins. Most children (and adults, too) do not consume the recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables, so snacks made of these are a good way to fill in those missed servings and also where those interesting container ideas (like canning jars) can come into play.  Veggie Dip Sticks: Take a small canning jelly jar (8 oz./1 cup) or plastic container about same size. Pour two tablespoons of lowfat ranch dressing (or hummus) into the bottom, add celery and carrot sticks no taller than the rim, add lid to seal. Store in the refrigerator for three days to four days.  Fruit with Yogurt on the bottom: Take a small canning jelly jar (1 cup) or plastic container about same size. Spoon four tablespoons of low-fat yogurt in the bottom, one tablespoon of granola (optional), and add fresh fruit of various shapes and colors almost to the rim, add lid to seal. Store in the refrigerator for three days to four days. Remember, you can teach your children to make these treats. And, with practice, they can do it on their own. As with any new food, be aware that some people have food allergies. The eight most common foods people are allergic to are milk; eggs; peanuts; tree nuts (such as almonds, cashews, walnuts); fish (such as bass, cod, flounder); shellfish (such as crab, lobster, shrimp); soy; and wheat. When purchasing food, be sure to read packaging because these eight foods are now included in food allergy labeling, and they account for an estimated 90 percent of allergic reactions.Betsy Crisp is a Professor Emeritus, UF/IFAS Extension Family & Consumer Sciences Scoops/Dippers: HOMEMADE PITA CHIPS/CROSTINI Ingredients: 3 (7-inch) whole-grain pita breads (or 1 whole grain baguette loaf)  2 Tablespoons olive oilInstructions: 1.

BACK FOR A LIMITED TIME SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION PRICING. CHECK OUT OUR NEW REWARDS PROGRAM By Kathy SteeleAs promised, it didnt take long. Bureaucratic wheels are turning on a project to build office and industrial space at the master-planned community of Asturia, off State Road 54. Pasco County commissioners approved a 10-year, $7 million loan to HP Asturia LLC on July 11 to aid in getting the two-phase project started. Private investment in the project is pegged at about $26 million, according to county records. On Aug. 1, Pasco County planners and representatives of Aurora Civil Engineering scheduled a pre-application meeting to discuss Asturia Industrial. That is a first step before submitting a site plan and other documents for approval from the Pasco County Commission. Were ready to start this afternoon, said Graham Mavar, in remarks to county commissioners at the July 11 meeting. Mavar is partner in leasing and development with Harrod Properties, which is developing the project. We like to self-develop everything, he said. We like the risk side so we build speculatively, which a lot of people wont do. Mavar estimated construction would start by the end of the year. County officials said they anticipate completion in 2018. The first phase of development includes a total of 107,500 square feet of industrial space. Two buildings are proposed. One is 40,000 square feet, including an 8,000square-foot mezzanine. The second industrial building would be 54,000 square feet, county records show. The loan agreement between the county and HP Asturia calls for the design, permitting and construction of the first phase to be completed within 24 months. Tampabased Harrod Properties Inc., is partnering in the development. The second phase of construction proposes a 128,000-square-foot industrial building, with the caution that plans could change. A future retail outparcel also is listed in the pre-application form. The industrial park is off State Road 54 in Odessa, about 1.5 miles west of Suncoast Parkway.The countys loan will aid in design and construction of a northern spine road connecting to Tower Road from State Road 54. Funding is from the Penny for Pasco program.However, if certain goals, primarily related to job creation, are met the entire loan could be forgiven, essentially becoming a grant. The buildings will be built on speculation, without pre-signed tenants. County officials project up to 400 new jobs, with total salaries estimated at about $11 million. They also anticipate economic growth from the development to add about $32 million to the countys gross domestic project annually. The loan agreement sets up the goals in phases. Once the new road is open to the public and there is a minimum of 80,000 square feet of industrial/office space, the county will forgive $4 million of the loan. Another $1 million would be forgiven on proof of 5year leases for the first buildings. Finally, the last $2 million would be forgiven at buildout, with additional leases, and total space of 200,000 square feet.Asturia industrial heading toward development COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTYHP Asturia and Harrod Properties Inc., plan to build up to 200,000 square feet of office and industrial space at the master-planned community of Asturia. This rendering depicts the faade of one of the proposed buildings.

Some of those are accurate depictions of the folk dance, but many are just a bunch of tinseltown hokum. At the American BellyDance Studio in Lutz you can learn numerous authentic styles, from traditional to fusion. ABS owner, Kandy Sinquefield, whose stage name is Kadayif, has taught it for more than 20 years. An ankle injury forced me to give up ballet because I could no longer do the pointe work, and thats how I got into belly dance, she said. Belly dance is an aerobic form of exercise that limits the impact on joints, so everyone can participate. Moreover, it promotes grace, confidence, self-expression, and enhances mobility and offers a great cardio workout to boot. Sinquefield is a registered nurse by trade, but has studied belly dance all over the world. She gives students safe, attainable goals for dance technique and exercise. Most of her ABS students are professional women like herself, who use classes as unwind time. Classes range from beginner to professional levels, and include basic instruction and specialization in styles such as Turkish Rom, Classic Egyptian, American Tribal, Tribal Fusion, and Gypsy. They even offer a few classes for children. ABS dancers are featured performers throughout the year at events like the Florida State Fair, renaissance festivals, local parades, various charitable events and several showcases held on site, in their 60-seat, theater space. Performers dance to traditional and nontraditional music as well. Kadayif works hard to promote a family atmosphere at American BellyDance Studio. Many of our dancers spouses help out during the shows with staging, lighting and concessions. The childrens classes kind of grew out their desire to participate after seeing their mommies practice and perform. It was really kind of a natural progression, she added. Its not all about belly either. ABS also features ballet, hip-hop and jazz classes, which are fused into the performances. For those who arent sure if this is the right fit for them, the studio offers free, no obligation, introductory classes, and a very flexible price structure to fit any schedule or budget. If youre looking for a fun and exotic way to get a fantastic cardio workout, then follow your gut instincts to American BellyDance Studio, 1.5 miles north of Bearss Ave., in the Sydney Center on the corner of U.S. 41 and Whitaker Road in Lutz.

ONLINE SCHEDULING A V 11A He reassured the sinkhole is not active, based on information hes received from geoengineers and other experts. We did anticipate that we were going to have potential problems (during cleanup), Guthrie said. The widening temporarily halted cleanup operations and forced building inspectors to condemn five more homes, which show signs of foundation shifts and compromised structural integrity. The recent destabilization of the sinkhole was the first documented movement since July 19, when the perimeter widened by approximately 10 feet, after sand erosion just below the ground surface dried and collapsed into the hole. The sinkhole originally opened July 14 in the Lake Padgett community. Officials say that most of the sinkhole is about 180 feet wide. Its current depth has not been verified. On the day that the sinkhole opened, it engulfed the properties at 21825 Ocean Pines Drive and 21835 Ocean Drive. The five additional homes that have met the criteria for demolition are: 21815 Ocean Pines Drive 21814 Ocean Pines Drive 3153 Canal Place 21748 Ocean Pines Drive 21845 Ocean Pines Drive Meanwhile, cleanup efforts have resumed. On July 31, the Pasco County Commission approved $1.3 million to remove the debris, eliminate the public health threat and secure the sinkhole site. Ceres Environmental Services, the main debris removal contractor, worked throughout much of the weekend on cleanup and recovery efforts. On the afternoon of Aug. 5, crews began dumping truckloads of lime rock to stabilize one side of the sinkhole and create a slope, to remove floating debris via a small platform barge equipped with an excavator. A total of 125 dump trucks of uncrushed lime rock were brought into the sinkhole area, and five semi-loads of debris were removed from the site. Following debris removal and disposal by Ceres, EnviroWaste Services will begin removing contaminated water from the site, over the next several weeks. The county also may opt to bring the roadway leading to the sinkhole up to grade, to later be asphalted in. Guthrie said the Phase 1 tasks will not be rushed, to prevent any injuries and further evacuations. During this recovery process, we are going to be slow, deliberate, methodical in our approach, as to not get anyone injured, he said. If we have to slow down, we slow down. Speed is not of the essence here. Following the cleanup phase, county administrators will hit the pause button to consult with the Pasco County Commission for the next phases. Possible long-term options range from leaving the sinkhole alone, to filling and repairing the sinkhole, or connecting it to a nearby lake. Estimates on filling the entire sinkhole would require at least 135,000 cubic yards of dirt. The entire mitigation of the sinkhole is expected to take several months. During cleanup, the county is deploying four safety officers to monitor the sinkhole. They will alert neighbors door-to-door if additional evacuations are necessary. plans to build a replacement bridge for the Howard Franklin bridge, which links Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.That bridge replacement will include four multipurpose lanes and two express lanes. But, the state roads department wants public input during the next two years for a new road project on I-275. The goal is to have plans ready by 2019.Based on reactions to Tampa Bay Express, residents are tired of focusing only on car-driven road projects, said Ed McKinney, planning and environmental administrator for FDOTs District 7 office, in Tampa.Tampa Bay Next is meant to start conversations. Were not going to show you any projects, McKinney said. Were not going to show you any plansWe hear over and over we need to be thinking differently. People who say that are absolutely right, he said. Some of the trouble spots already identified in Pasco include the State Road 56 interchange on Interstate 75, the east/west corridor of State Road 54 and State Road 56, the intersection of State Road 54 and U.S. 41, and the lack of transit options. At the working group sessions, people divided into five teams that prioritized transportation needs. They also made organizational decisions for future meetings. As a group, they voted on priorities, based on a compiled list of recommendations from every team. Top priorities included: Adding light rail, possibly on U.S. 301 and the State Road 56 extension, and more bus service to destinations and high traffic areas Converting CSX rail lines for passenger service Providing Bus Rapid Transit, or BRT, to serve the area The session also produced a longer list of traffic problems people want addressed. Requests and complaints included: I-75 and State Road 56 fix it I-75 and Overpass Road do it State Road 54 and U.S. 41 intersection fix it Put multi-use trail on one side of State Road 56 extension and let it meander More park and ride facilities Extend Tower Road to State Road 589 and widen U.S. 41 Yay Bexley! Most of east Pasco is shoved onto I-75 Too many (development) entitlements on State Road 54 Plan for more recreational and bicycle trails Once priorities were decided, Land O Lakes resident Jack George posed a question during public comment. What is the end game here? What is the objective? he said. I havent heard that tonight and, without a goal, I dont know how to get there. McKinney said the state department of transportation planned a series of video primers to provide information on a broad range of topics, including how projects get funded. The primers hopefully will educate people on issues such as how projects are developed and funded, and allow for longer conversations. The videos will be posted online, McKinney said. Tampa Bay Next isnt the only transportation initiative in Pasco. Kris Hughes, the countys planning and development director, offered perspective on some ongoing efforts. For example, vision planning for State Road 54 and State Road 56 is entering a second phase, with a public meeting on Aug. 24 at 5:30 p.m., at the Pasco Utilities Administration Building, off U.S. 41. The county is partnering in that effort, while also completing a separate planning study in the area. Hughes also noted that new technology, including driverless cars, will be part of new development in the Connected City corridor in northeast Pasco. This is a very complex, very intricate system of efforts, Hughes said. In addition to Walbridges crew, the school district has two inspectors onsite, Petrashek said, who will be monitoring code compliance and quality assurance. With 1,700, 1,800 students working on an occupied campus, even with the exceptional record that Walbridge has for safety and the protection of their staff and the students, it warranted having two people keeping eyes on this, coordinating with the school, the staff, the principal, to make this happen, Petrashek said. The projects $29 million price tag includes construction, furniture and equipment, permitting fees, design fees, relocating portables, fencing and other expenses. Petrashek said it wouldnt be possible to do the project on an occupied campus without the close cooperation of Ric Mellin, the schools principal. Mr. Mellin has really been exceptional to work with on this project. Hes innovative. Hes taken the attitude, We do what we have to, to make this a success, Petrashek said. Some of the adjustments for the coming year include creative scheduling to maximize the use of classroom space. The principal has figured all of that out, Petrashek said. About a quarter of the school will be shut down at a time, Mellin said, noting parents did not want their children moved to a different campus or on any kind of split session. The school day has been changed from seven periods to six periods, and the break for lunch has been shortened to 30 minutes. Mellin said he thinks some people may have had the wrong idea about the scope of the project, perhaps thinking it was just a cosmetic update. Its far more than that, Mellin said. This is a tearing down walls to the bare minimum, redoing plumbing, electrical, upgrades to technology, Mellin said. It also involves new walls, new floors and new ceilings, Graham said. The restrooms will be brought up to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant. Theyll be completely gutted and refurbished, added Petrashek. Doing such a substantial project while the campus is occupied requires a considerable amount of precaution, Petrashek said. Mellin noted that parents wanted to be assured that the air quality will be protected. Petrashek said the district will be on top of the issue. Were going to test on an ongoing basis, so we can respond, he said. The project will add capacity, but involves little new construction. The school initially was constructed for 1,200 students. Over time, portables and additions increased its capacity to 1,700. At completion of the renovation, the capacity will exceed 2,000, Petrashek said. A five-classroom addition is being made to the science wing, replacing an area that previously was occupied by portables. The other addition is the administration addition, which is going to be out front, Graham said. That will be done in a later phase. Theres going to be inconvenience every day that this project goes on, Petrashek said. But, anytime the contractors are doing work that is noisy, that will cause any type of disruption, they have to move that work to the swing shift, after school dismisses, he said. The project also will require adjustments from students and staff, as classes are moved from one part of the campus to another. Year two takes on a lot more classrooms, Mellin said, noting, were going to have to be a little more creative with our scheduling Year 2. But, the principal hopes that by then people will have adjusted to the idea that the school renovation is a work in progress. The project must be completed by August 2019. Meeting that deadline isnt optional, Graham said. The seasons of the school are what they are, he said, adding if construction crews run into some sort of delay, theyll need to make up for lost time. Sometimes we have to run two shifts. Sometimes we run Saturdays and Sundays thats the extra time we have available, Graham said. RICHARD K. RILEY COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY SCHOOLS

The events were held from July 16 to July 22. The Adaptive Sports USA Junior Nationals is for athletes ages 6 to 22 with physical disabilities, and is the oldest and With the high school football season just around the corner, one school in Wesley Chapel is gearing up for its inaugural season. The Cypress Creek High Coyotes began practices last week, in preparation for its first regular season home opener on Aug. 25 against the Gulf High Buccaneers. The looming matchup brings intrigue, as it pits the upstart Coyotes against a Gulf program that has gone winless the last two seasons (0-20 combined in 2015 and 2016). Mike Johnson, the Coyotes first-year head coach, expects the opener to be surreal, for players, coaches and fans alike. To be able to walk on the field for the very first time thats going to be a cool feeling for everybody, Johnson said. That first Friday night is going to be pretty cool. Whether they (Gulf) break a long losing streak or we win the first game in school history, thats going to pretty neat, whichever way it does go. The Coyotes currently have about 40 players, enough to fill varsity and junior varsity teams; the varsity team will play in Class 4A for at least two years. The schools first football team features no seniors though because only underclassmen from Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass high schools were rezoned to Cypress Creek.The school, located 8701 Old Pasco Road, will have nearly 1,500 students in grades six through 11 this year. For some players, like Logan Bercaw, switching schools was an adjustment. Bercaw, a junior lineman, spent the past two years at Wiregrass Ranch. It was a little difficult, he said, because you started your first two years playing football at one school, thinking youre going to finish there, and then you get switched out to a different school. Its nice, because its a brand-new school, but its a pretty big change. Besides Bercaw, much of the 2017 team is composed of freshman and sophomores. Were very young, said Kevin LaChance, an assistant who coaches running backs and linebackers. Were just trying to get something built, start laying a foundationand to do the best we can. With such a youthful roster, the Coyotes coaching staff spent much of the first week addressing basic fundamentals, such as safe tackling and blocking techniques, and focusing on running formations and ball protection. Learning a new playbook and hitting the weight room were emphasized, too. Were breaking it down to the very basics, Johnson said. All those basic fundamentals are really going to help them out in the long run. Inexperience aside, the head coach is pleased with the teams results in workouts and practices thus far. Weve been getting after it, Johnson said. Theyve come out and put in the work. I was very pleased with the amount of players we had out here and the effort they were giving. Its definitely a positive. The summer practices are especially valuable, considering most of the roster didnt participate in the programs spring drills occupied with other sports and activities at their former schools. The early returns show the Coyotes have workable talent particularly at skill positions. I think weve got some speed, which I enjoy, said Johnson. Were loaded at running back. I think weve got quite a few running backs/receiver types. One of those is sophomore running back Keith Walker. The Wesley Chapel transfer made varsity his freshman year, and earned playing time in a crowded backfield that featured Dexter Leverett (1,249 yards on 165 carries), Malik Melvin (358 yards on 53 carries) and Ellrie Allen (117 yards on 23 carries). There, Walker flashed breakaway speed on handoffs (136 yards on 13 carries) and as a receiver (102 yards on four catches). The Coyotes also have found a viable starter at quarterback, in sophomore Jehlani Warren, a transfer from Wiregrass Ranch. Hell be able to run the ball a little bit, too, Johnson said. Cypress Creek, meanwhile, marks Johnsons first varsity head coaching gig. He previously coached at Stuart Middle School and served as an offensive line coach at Wesley Chapel High School, under former head coach Ben Alford. He believes hes up to the task of leading a high school program. I learned over the years the process of how to manage and how to handle (a team), said Johnson, also a former defensive back at Division III Eureka College in Illinois. That includes conforming to a foundation he calls the Cs Commitment, Consistency, Courage, Communication and Compassion. Im a big guy on, Be here on time, show me effort in practice, and well find a place for you, Johnson explained. Youve got to be here, and youve got to give me 100 percent all the time, and well definitely find a spot for you, somewhere. What the program may lack in initial experience coaching and playing it makes up in its new digs. Cypress Creek offers multiple practice fields adjacent to its football stadium, as well as a Fieldhouse and state-of-the-art weight room measuring nearly 2,300 square feet. Locker rooms, moreover, features ample space to accommodate both high school and middle school teams. Its very nice, LaChance said of the facilities. Everything looks fresh and new; the weight room looks amazing. Its phenomenal; you cant beat it, added Johnson. If youre enrolled here, I wouldnt see why you wouldnt want to play here. If you have any type of passion to play football, youd want to be here and involved with that weight room and those practice facilities. Its definitely a fantastic opportunity for me and the coaching staff and the players, he said.Cypress Creek readies for inaugural season KEVIN WEISS LOCAL PARALYMPIC TEAM SHINES AT JUNIOR NATIONALSParalympic Sport Tampa Bay, a program of Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation, recently won the Small Team Division at the National Junior Disability Championships, in Middleton, Wisconsin.

INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B Maybe because its an island. Or, maybe because its close to home, but feels so far away.Or, maybe because Anna Maria Island lulls you with its watery beauty and makes you forget the world outside. Maybe, for all these reasons, this island is an ideal place for a day-trip. For years, Tampa families have escaped to their second homes on the island on weekends just to get away. Most were nothing fancy, white cottages an easy stroll from long stretches of sandy beaches. If they got up early enough, they might be the only ones on the beach for miles. Some modest cottages and little houses are still there. But, more and more have been torn down and replaced by much larger homes on the water, more often owned by out-of-staters than by Tampa Bay area locals. Many new and old homes are now vacation rentals, which gives the island a more transient feeling than ever before. That didnt hurt the vibe, though, on our recent day visit to Anna Maria, the northernmost of the three cities on the island. (The others are Bradenton Beach to the south and Holmes Beach in the middle). It was enjoyable to watch other tourists like ourselves fishing and sitting on the city pier, riding bikes down the middle of South Bay Boulevard, or lining up for a first-come, first-served lunch at the popular Waterfront Restaurant & Craft Bar. Before noon, retirement-aged couples sat at picnic tables on the city pier chatting and drinking canned beer, while an older man fished from his wheelchair, using shrimp as bait. A little boy in a red baseball cap sat watching a sheriffs boat with deputies aboard idling beside the pier. A young couple fished under the watchful eyes of hungry pelicans. On land, groups of families and lots of couples walked the beaches, rode rental bikes up and down narrow, sea grape-lined streets, and ducked in and out of shops. We enjoyed strolling past homes, some named: After All, Serenity Now, Casa del Mar, Starfish, Three Palms, Manatee House A man on a bike wore a T-shirt that said Island Bum, an enviable statement on such a pretty day. No one seemed in a hurry. No one seemed the least bit interested in what was going on in Washington D.C., or anywhere else. A woman in a little shop called Just Beachy shopped for an Anna Maria Island Tshirt, but sounded conflicted about buying one or not. I dont want more people to come here, she said. I want to keep it our secret. Too late for that, another woman said. Then they laughed. The secrets long been out. But, Anna Maria still isnt too crowded to make it stressful on an off-season weekday in May. Weekends, though, are another story. One of the best things about Anna Maria is that once you park, you dont really need a car. Water the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway are all an easy walk from anywhere inland. If you tire, you can hop on the free trolley, rent a bike or sit a spell in a cozy bar, cafe or ice cream shop. Or, you can shop in one of the local boutiques or gift shops. I particularly like The White Egret, at 10006 Gulf Drive, specializing in an array of coastal home decor and gifts, and its sister store, The Egrets Nest, at 10010 Gulf Drive, a high-end womens and baby boutique. Both stores have friendly service and attractive gifts hard to find in chain stores. Theyre also a fun place to eavesdrop on other visitors. I wish I could move here, one young shopper told the sales clerk. My hair always looks so much fuller and better in this humidity than it does at home. When the clerk asked where she lived, she told her, Orlando, which sounded funny, considering all of Florida seems so humid and muggy in late spring and summer. Many visitors head to the beach and stay all day, a smart idea, since its sometimes tough to find a parking spot. We drove up and down the beach-side streets and never found a place that didnt require a local permit. Those who came early got the free, nopermit spots. We figured most people who arent staying on the island in one of the houses or at an inn or hotel must go to Holmes or Bradenton beaches to the south that both have large parking lots. We ended up parking in a free spot near the city pier and walked from there down the pier, then along Bayfront Park, a spit of beach on Tampa Bay. Then, we headed to lunch at The Waterfront Restaurant & Craft Bar, where we sat outside with a view of the bay. We had been before, and remembered the good food and watery views. This time, I had excellent crab cakes, loaded with lump crab, atop a tropical salad for $15. My husband enjoyed his carnitas, pork braised in orange juice and seasonings, and served on tortillas with cheese, avocado, chimichurri and lime for $12. Another diner raved about her steamed mussels, $12. Its such a peaceful setting, with kayakers gliding east and west, with the Sunshine Skyway Bridge as a backdrop. If they time it right, kayakers can paddle to Bean Point Beach to watch the sun set over the Gulf with others gathered there. Or, they can just paddle around, enjoying the green, tranquil waters of the bay and maybe even see a dolphin or two all on island time. TIPS FOR THE TRIPHOW TO GET THERE:Anna Maria is in Manatee County. Once over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on Interstate 275 South, take U.S. 19 south to south Tamiami Trail. Go left (south) on the trail, then go right (west) on State Road 64. When that dead ends at the beach, turn right on Gulf Drive, which leads to Anna Maria.WHERE TO EAT:We liked The Waterfront Restaurant & Craft Bar, at 111 South Bay Blvd., that offers indoor and outdoor seating and a dark-wood bar that serves 13 craft cocktails. Open daily for lunch and dinner. Visit or call (941) 778-1515. Weve also enjoyed eating at The Sandbar Restaurant, at 100 Spring Ave., on the Gulf of Mexico, a wonderful place for sunsets and grouper sandwiches. Call (941) 778-0444. Anna Maria has many other restaurants, cafes and bars as well. Find them, along with places to rent kayaks and paddleboards, at TO STAY: If you want to stay overnight on the island, there are lots of options from homes to inns, motels and resorts. For listings, see FACT: According to legend, Anna Maria Island was named by a Spanish explorer for the Virgin Mary and her mother, Ann. KAREN HAYMON LONG An island oasis, a day-trip away

School bells are summoning students back to classes in Hillsborough and Pasco counties and some students will be attending classes on entirely new campuses. Sunlake Academy of Math and Science, a new public charter school in Hillsborough County, begins its inaugural school year on Aug. 10. It is located at 18681 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Lutz. Meanwhile, Pasco County is opening Bexley Elementary, at 4380 Ballantrae Blvd., in Land O Lakes, and Cypress Creek Middle High School, in Wesley Chapel. Students arriving at Land O Lakes High School will find reconfigured spaces, to accommodate a $29 million makeover. At Sunlake High School and Rushe Middle School, there will be a new traffic pattern for student drop-off and pickups, and at Wiregrass Ranch High, the school will be back to operating on a seven-period day. Those are just a few of the changes in store for the new school year, which begins in Hillsborough County on Aug. 10 and in Pasco County on Aug. 14. Some changes, which are state mandates, affect public school students in both counties. Other changes affect students at a particular school or within a specific county. For instance, the Pasco school district is revising its crisis plans to give students and staff a better chance to survive an active threat on campus. Meanwhile, Principal Vicki Wolin will lead the new Bexley Elementary School, in the Bexley subdivision off State Road 54, in Land O Lakes. That school was built to ease crowding at Oakstead and Odessa elementary schools. Bexley is also part of the school districts feeder pattern for the Aviation Academy at Sunlake High School. As such, Bexley will have drones, flight simulators and robotics. Its STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) lab is situated in its media center, which it calls its REC Center, which stands for Research, Engage and Collaborate. Cypress Creek Middle High School, at 8701 Old Pasco Road in Wesley Chapel, will serve students previously assigned to Wiregrass Ranch, Wesley Chapel and Sunlake high schools and John Long, Weightman and Rushe middle schools. Principal Carin Hetzler-Nettles, previously principal at Wesley Chapel High, will recognize many of the students streaming onto the campus for their first day. But, there will be many unfamiliar faces, too. The school has been hosting events ahead of opening day to help students get acquainted with the school and to find out what it has to offer. Cypress Creek Middle High will serve sixththrough 11th-graders its initial year and will add a senior class its second year. The new high schools curriculum runs the gamut from ballet to digital design to American Sign Language. It offers several certification programs, including Microsoft Office, QuickBooks and Autodesk Inventor. Cypress Creeks middle school curriculum includes Criminal Justice and Engineering academies, plus core classes. The new schools arent the only places where Pasco County students will have a chance for new experiences. The district also is expanding its Cambridge Programme to San Antonio Elementary School. And, Zephyrhills High School is adding a new academy of Building Construction Technology and Public Safety Telecommunications 911 certification for the Academy of Criminal Justice. A new public charter school also has opened in Pasco County, too, bringing the districts total number of charter schools to 11. The new charter is called Pasco MYcroSchool and is located in New Port Richey. Besides new schools and programs, Pasco County also has shifted some principals since last school year and promoted an assistant principal to the top post: Principal Scott Atkins has moved from Sand Pine Elementary School to West Zephyrhills Elementary School. Christine Twardosz has transferred from Centennial Elementary School to Sand Pine. Gretchen Rudolph Fladd has moved from Veterans to Centennial. Melissa Bidgood, who was an assistant principal at Watergrass Elementary, has been promoted to the principals post at Veterans. Parents wanting to know more about the upcoming school year should check out their schools website. School websites can provide a wealth of information. They generally list important upcoming dates for school activities, such as cheerleader tryouts, booster club meetings, school spirit nights and parent-teacher events. The websites also often let parents know how they can get involved at school and how they can help their children at home. Most schools also have Facebook pages and Twitter accounts, and some post videos to YouTube, too. Websites maintained by the Hillsborough and Pasco school districts can also provide useful information, too. SELLINGYOUR CAR?Call Classifieds813-909-2800to advertise!
