Besides Land O’ Lakes, its students come from New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Lutz, Trinity, Spring Hill, Dade City, Hudson and Holiday, New Port Richey, Westchase and Odessa. It now has campuses on both sides of Collier Parkway. The third campus would be off 20 Mile Level Road, on land that is undeveloped, except for the former MacManus family home. Plans for that third campus include athletic facilities, a new lower division school for grades kindergarten through fourth grade, and an environmental sciences education area. It also would include the infrastructure that’s needed to support those facilities, Heller said.

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhen Courtney Urban began volunteering at the Gulfside Hospice Thrift Shoppe, at 1930 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., in Lutz, it was just a way to spend some extra time with her grandmother. “The big thing in the beginning was just going with her,” said Urban, who began her volunteer work in 2013. “But then it became my own thing. I loved going there. When I got to be the cashier, it was fun to interact with all of the customers. I kind of took it into my own hands, rather than just to be there with grandma,” the now 19-year-old said. Over the years, she has logged more than 800 volunteer hours, and recently, Urban was honored with the Volunteers are the Foundation of Hospice Award by the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, at a conference in San Diego. Urban was recognized in the Young Leaders category. The University of South Florida student was both surprised and delighted to be singled out. Most recently, she has been pitching in at Gulfside Center for Hospice Care, at 5760 Dean Dairy Road in Zephyrhills. Initially, she served as a compassion companion volunteer, and now she’s helping at the front desk. Her work as a volunteer has changed her. “It’s helped me come out of my shell. I was very shy in high school. I was the kid that hated when I had to speak in front of the class. I wasn’t good at making friends.“Now, I can walk into a room and instantly strike up a conversation with a patient or their family. I enjoy speaking with people, now. I feel like I opened up,” Urban said.It also has broadened her perspective. “I also didn’t realize how many different kinds of people are out there in the world.

But, even with a rebounding economy, they are facing a financial hurdle in funding the necessities for parks, libraries and emergency management. Looming ahead is a third $25,000 homestead exemption, which is expected to pass in a 2018 voter referendum. If it does pass, Pasco County could lose $8 million in general fund revenues, and $2 million in fire fund revenues. One solution commissioners are exploring is municipal taxing units that would collect revenues based on property tax valuations. Commissioners discussed the idea at an Oct. 17 workshop in Dade City. No decision was reached, but county staff members will provide more details in the future.And, its possible that voters could weigh in, if the matter goes to a referendum. Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey wants to move forward, without a referendum. Other commissioners want a referendum before considering any increase of taxes. Representatives of each of the three departments presented a list of backlogged equipment and repairs or enhanced services that are needed, if Pasco is to become a premier county. Parks has about $14 million in deferred maintenance at its 35 parks, recreation centers, trails and swimming pools. Its current annual budget is about $9 million. A taxing unit would collect about $28 million annually. However, not all of those funds would be spent at once. The annual parks budget would increase to between $10 million and $13 million. And, funds would be spent on maintenance of existing facilities and long-term replacement, said Keith Wiley, the countys natural resources manager. Its not about having more facilities and prettier facilities, he said. Libraries and emergency management also face shrinking resources. Based on state library standards, Pasco spends about $13 per person, or about half the state average of about $26 per person. The same standards show Pasco needs about 170,000 square feet of additional space. Yet, the next library, probably in Starkey Ranch, isnt slated for construction until 2022. Library staffing also is well below state average standards. We need to update our facilities to the 21st century, said Sean McGarvey, a library administrator. Emergency management and fire rescue face challenges in response times and providing protection for area residents. Fire rescue needs eight additional fire stations to cover the entire county, and the growing population, said Michael Cassano, the countys deputy fire chief of operations. Additional personnel and equipment also are needed, he said. Taxing units for emergency management and for fire rescue would collect about $10 million each. The countys 911 communications center wont have sufficient room to operate in two to three years, a situation that Kevin Guthrie, assistant county administrator for public safety, called catastrophic. The county also needs generators for the schools that provide emergency shelters during hurricanes. Currently, the county can provide only three schools with generators, Guthrie said. Starkey pushed to move forward and create taxing units with a future vote by county commissioners. Prior public outreach has shown that residents are willing to support more funding, said Starkey. She had raised the issue for parks during budget discussions for 2018, but the county could not have met a deadline to establish such a taxing district. We cant have slides that are falling apart, swings falling apart, she said. Weve just let our citizens down by letting all these parks fall apart. I think its 10 years past due to fund our parks and our libraries. The authority to create the taxing units belongs to the county commissioners. So, the referendum, unless voters were asked to approve a bond issue, would be a straw poll. I personally think were jumping the gun by even having any discussion, said Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Moore. He cited an earlier directive from the county commission to first have outreach to the public on parks before considering a taxing unit. County officials said the hurricane had delayed those efforts for outreach on the parks, but they would come back in December with results from meetings and polling efforts. Libraries and emergency management will be included. Moore also did some quick figuring, determining that homeowners could face a 34 percent increase in taxes, if all of the taxing units were fully funded. That would add about $140 to the average property tax bill of $407, based on the countys average home value of $107,000. Never, ever, in my life will you see this person raise our citizens taxes by 34 percent, Moore said. Thats insane.The Pasco County School Board has approved the charter application for Pinecrest Academy Wesley Chapel, a charter school that plans to open in that community. Now that the school board has approved the application, work is underway to develop a contract with the charter school applicant, said Jeff Yungmann, coordinator for charter schools in Pasco County Schools. The new charter school is expected to open in 2018-19, or 2019-2020, Yungmann said. The application identifies that the school would open with a maximum of 652 kindergarten through sixth grade students, Yungmann said. In the second year, it would add seventh grade and would have a total enrollment of 900; in Year 3, it would add eighth grade and would have 1,134 students; in Year 4 and thereafter, it would have 1,200 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The mission of Pinecrest Academy Inc., is to provide individualized instruction, in a nurturing environment ensuring college and career success, using rigor, relevance, and relationships to empower students to become tomorrows global leaders, according to a school board document. The Charter Application Review Committee conducted a rigorous evaluation process utilizing the Florida Charter School Application Evaluation Instrument, including the capacity interview on August 17, 2017. In its comprehensive evaluation, the Committee concluded that 21 of the 22 sections of the Pinecrest Academy Wesley Chapels application met the standard of review. One of the 22 sections of the application partially met the standard of review. There were no sections rated as did not meet the standard of review, according to the backup material for the board agenda item.The applicant has not yet identified a specific location for the school, other than indicating it will be in Wesley Chapel, Yungmann said.Yungmann characterized the applicants submittal as an outstanding application and called it one of the best hes reviewed. They had a good solid plan, he said. The charter school operators have locations in other parts of the state, but this would be their first location in Pasco County. Yungmann said the charter has a strong governing board and a good track record. We hope theyre going to do well, he said.Planning underway for new charter schoolA new middle school is expected to open next to Cypress Creek Middle High School, allowing the existing school to focus on high school only. The new middle school will accommodate 1,675 students on a 15-acre site, just north of the current school, which opened in August at 8701 Old Pasco Road, for students in grades six through 11. The estimated construction budget is $43.5 million. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2018, with opening planned for August 2020. The Pasco County School Board has approved an agreement with architects Harvard Jolly, to reuse the design of the 1,400-student station Innovation Middle School in Orange County, for the new middle school, according to school board documents. Pasco school district staff members recently toured Innovation Middle School and found that the school to be cost effective, attractive and extremely safe and a school that will successfully meet the educational needs of the district, according to district documents. Many of the preferred features of this school are already found in a number of our educational facilities, the document added. Our version of the school will be expanded to approximately 1,600 student stations to accommodate future growth in this region of the district. Cypress Creek Middle High is slated to add a senior class next school year. When the school opened, it affected boundaries for Rushe, John Long and Weightman middle schools, and Sunlake, Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass high schools. The district initially had hoped to open Cypress Creek as a high school only, but was forced to use it for more grades because it lacked sufficient construction funds.Gearing up for Cypress Creek Middle School County exploring adding a new tax


1909 courthouse in Dade City was designed by a local man, Artemus Roberts, but Eddie discovered that it was actually designed by Edward Columbus Hosford, an architect who designed many courthouses and other buildings in the South, the local historian explained. Eddies discovery came about after his brother Gregory moved to Mason, Texas, and told Eddie that the courthouse there looked almost exactly like the one in Dade City, but that it was designed by Hosford. Eddie looked through the old minutes of the Pasco County Commission and found that Hosford did indeed design the Pasco courthouse, and that Roberts was the Superintendent of Construction, Miller added. In addition to his public life, Eddie was a man who treasured his faith and family. Every Sunday, he could be found kneeling in his pew in church at his parish of St. Anthony of Padua in San Antonio. Then, the family gathered for a pancake breakfast at his parents home. He also was an active member of the St. Leo community and participated in St. Leo Abbey events. Articles he wrote about Father Felix Ullrich, former pastor of Saint Anthony Church, and about the history of San Antonio can be found on Millers website, With Eddies passing, San Antonio has lost a man who worked tenaciously for the communitys good. Those of us who were lucky enough to know him, will miss Eddies optimistic outlook and energy. In his final email to me, he signed off in customary way: Keep smiling. It looks good on you! It was the same kind of upbeat sentiment that he conveyed, in so many different ways, during a life well-spent in San Antonio.

Lutz, Florida Edward Joseph Herrmann, known as Eddie to most everyone in San Antonio, was an original, and with his passing on Oct. 21, the community paused to reminisce about a pillar of the community.Eddie wore many hats. He was a father, a son, a husband, an uncle, a former Mayor of San Antonio, an award-winning winemaker, a writer and a respected historian. His death came on the evening of the 51st annual San Antonio Rattlesnake Festival, an event which he co-founded with Deputy Sheriff Willy Post, as a project of the Jaycees. To know Eddie was to appreciate a man who revered his community, and valued the facts and lessons of history. Local history buffs and museums regularly consulted with Eddie. Eddie gave me many photos to use on the website, and he was able to provide information about a number of old photos, said Jeff Miller, who operates the website and is a respected local historian. Eddie knew of the existence of a large collection of high-quality vintage photos of Dade City, San Antonio and surrounding towns. Most of the photos were taken by the Dade City Chamber of Commerce in the late 1920s, and before. He asked Oliver and Barbara DeWitt of Dade City, who are now in possession of the photos, to allow me to scan the photos, which are known as the Helen Eck Sparkman Collection. They can be viewed and downloaded in high resolution on the website, Miller said.These photos of public places and historic homes are indicative of Eddies zeal to capture accurate information and to share his knowledge, often through anecdotes, about the culture and flavor of a specific time or event.Herrmann co-authored The Historic Places of Pasco County, commonly called the orange book, with James J. Horgan and Alice Hall in 1992. The volume traces the history of the county from 1887 to a hundred years later, in 1987, describing 264 buildings, sites, and homes that were designated as historic. The book also provides a map and guide to the countys cemeteries. Compiling the information was a gargantuan task. And, Eddie told others about a time he once spent 24 hours, without a break, conducting research for the book, along with his great friend, the iconic Zephyrhills activist Alice Hall.We spent the night together at the Zephyrhills City Hall poring through records, and they just left us there all night, Eddie said.Eddie was a charter member of the Pasco County Historical Preservation Committee, formed in 1977 by the Pasco County Commission. In his role on the committee, he was involved in the placement of historical markers throughout Pasco County. His work was valuable in protecting landmarks, said Scott Black, another local historian and a member of the Dade City Commission. Eddie identified important sites around the county that were in danger of being forgotten, Black said, via email. I particularly remember how often he would talk about his quest for the -Mile House, which was a stagecoach stop 26 miles south of Chocochattee (present-day Brooksville) on the old road to Tampa, Black said. Eddie pinpointed the location so well that he was able to persuade the county to require Lennar Homes to fund an historical marker at the entrance of the Stagecoach Village housing development in Land OLakes as one of the permitting conditions for the development, Black recalled. Pat Mulieri, a member of the Pasco County Commission at the time, recognized Eddies contributions in a proclamation he received in 2014 on the steps of the Pasco County Historic Courthouse in Dade City. Eddie rarely missed a meeting of the Pasco County Historical Society, and he served the organization in every capacity, from president to board member to program chairman, for many years. He provided a wealth of information, and was always ready to help others unearth historic facts.For example, he delved into assisting Eva Martha Knapp and Hernando High School students with documenting the 1944 German POW Camp No. 7 that was operated in Dade City during World War II. During the course of that work, Eddie forged friendships with several former soldiers hosting them at his home and then visiting them in Germany. Eddie had the knack of seeing both the forest, and the trees. He recognized the interweaving of the economy, resources and changing political issues. For instance, he had extensive knowledge about Florida horticulture, and proved to be an invaluable resource for me, when I was conducting my research for local history books about Dade City and Wesley Chapel. As an example, he encouraged me to include the impact of a cactus farmer, Anthony Tuzzolino of Wesley Chapel, who raised 15 acres of cacti and imported cacti, and other produce, from Wesley Chapel to Ybor City during the early 1940s. Beyond merely telling me that, Eddie researched the issue, contacting the Pasco County Cooperative Extension Office, as well as the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences on Opuntia Cactus, and then he passed along several citations to me. Thus, I wasnt surprised when I later learned that Eddie himself was an accomplished gardener and grower. As a matter of fact, he won the Florida Grape Growers Associations first winemaking competition in 1974, and then went on to spend years continuing to hone his skills in growing grapes and making wine. When gopher tortoises were declared a species of special concern, Eddie embraced the opportunity to protect the tortoises which had been used in races at the Rattlesnake Festival. He spearheaded the design of a large wooden version of a toy that resembled a gopher tortoise to be used instead. Eddies research also helped correct the record on one of Dade Citys most iconic buildings, Miller said. It had long been thought that the historic COURTESY OF MADONNA JERVIS WISE Knowing Your History Edward Eddie Joseph HerrmannEdward Joseph Herrmann, widely known as Eddie, was born to Joe Herrmann and Rose Ullrich Herrmann on July 25, 1936 in the Jovita Building in San Antonio. Eddie grew up in the Jovita Building that was built by his grandfather, Lucius Herrmann, a baker by trade, and Tony Rachel, with help from his father, Joe, and his aunt, Margaret Herrmann Kirch, who were teenagers at the time. The family lived upstairs, with businesses downstairs. Eddie had several siblings: Margaret Herrmann Beaumont, Paul Herrmann, Rosemary Herrmann, Joseph Herrmann, Barbara Herrmann Sessa, John Herrmann, Mary Sue Herrmann Keenan and Gregory Lucius Herrmann. Eddie started school a year early at St. Anthony School and skipped a grade. He graduated when he was 16 from St. Leo College Prep School. Eddie married Mary Patricia Patsy Miller on Oct. 19, 1955. Their 62nd anniversary was just two days before Eddie died. The couples five children are: Michael Joseph Herrmann, Amy Herrmann Greif, Larry Herrmann, Laura Herrmann Bailey and Eric Herrmann. After finishing high school, Eddie worked for his dads Saf-T-Gas Company, but eventually bought the Culligan Soft Water Business from his dad and raised his kids in Culligan Kindergarten, with the children riding around with him for years in his big truck, as he serviced his route. His wife, Patsy, was the bookkeeper.This biographical information was supplied by Margaret Herrmann Beaumont, Eddies sister.Eddie Herrmann, a pillar in San Antonio, was an original

Classrooms are full. The gymnasium is a part-time lunchroom. The schools solution is to build a twostory wing off the rear of the gymnasium, adding about 13,000 square feet of space. The expansion provides enough room for seven classrooms and a dedicated lunchroom. The goal is to open the new extension by August 2018. The lunchroom caf and a teachers lounge will be on the first floor. Additional rooms will be on the second floor. The rooms can be used as classrooms, if needed, but their primary purpose is to house programs, such as band or makerspace. Enrollment is 775 students, just a handful short of the schools goal of 800 students. While the school has a waiting list, the expansion isnt about increasing enrollment. We just need extra workspace, said Imagine Principal Aimee Williams. The gymnasium is transformed into a lunchroom daily, and then cleared out. Thats not a big problem during the school day, Williams said. Its more for the sports and afterschool programs that makes it difficult to swap out, she explained. A pre-application meeting with county planners was held on Oct. 23. Details on the project are being worked out prior to construction. This year, the school will graduate its first class of eighth-graders who began at Imagine in kindergarten. Imagine opened nearly a decade ago in a business park in Ballantrae. The move to its current location, at 2940 Sunlake Blvd., came in 2012. The schools charter extends to 2028, following a fifteen-year renewal in 2013. Teachers are STEAM-certified. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. The school received an A grade from the state for 2016-2017. It educates students from kindergarten through eighth grade, who come to the public charter school from Land O Lakes, Wesley Chapel, New Port Richey, and even Hillsborough County. The school has won accolades. Imagine received the 2016 Promising Practice Winner by Character Counts. In 2015, it was runner-up in the National School of Character competition by Character Counts, and a runner-up for National School of the Year by Imagine Schools. Imagine is owned and operated by an affiliate of Imagine School Non-Profit Inc., which has schools nationwide. Its a point of pride that the Land O Lakes campus is part of the Pasco County community, the principal said. We definitely feel we are part of Pasco County and want to add whatever we can to the community, Williams said. KATHY STEELE

Lexington Oaks Boulevard is the entry into the Lexington Oaks residential community. The California-based developer, Specialty Restaurants Corp., proposes to build up to 200 apartments or condominiums and 300,000 square feet of retail. An assisted living or independent living facility could be constructed, too. Developers worked with the Lexington Oaks Homeowners Association on issues related to interconnections with existing roads, and roads internal to the proposed development. This proposal replaces one previously considered by Specialty Restaurants that did not include a residential component. It would have been pretty much a straight retail project, said Clarke Hobby, the attorney representing the developer. Development will happen north and south of Lexington Boulevard, under the names of Lexington Oaks Plaza North and Lexington Oaks Plaza South. An approximately 5-acre parcel in the southern portion was carved out of the project to potentially be developed separately. The southern parcel is about 46 acres; the northern parcel about 23 acres. Internal roads and driveways within the south parcel and the separate 5-acre parcel will have connectivity to Lexington Oaks Boulevard. There also will be access to Progress Parkway at Wesley Chapel Boulevard, which has a traffic signal. This would just be the latest new development in the area. Wesley Chapel Boulevard is dotted with subdivisions, such as Stagecoach, Cypress Estates and Grand Oaks. It is a major corridor linking to State Road 54 and State Road 56 to the south, and the rapid commercial and residential development at that intersection. Tampa Premium Outlets and Cypress Creek Town Center are adding to the retail sector. New hotels are open or are under construction. An apartment and retail development called Brighthouse Crossings is under construction behind the Walgreens drugstore, near the same intersection. As more development emerges, Pasco is preparing to widen Wesley Chapel Boulevard. Cypress Creek Town Center developers recently completed road widening immediately north of the State Road 54 and State Road 56 intersection. Future county plans call for widening Wesley Chapel Boulevard to a six-lane divided roadway, with additional traffic signals. Some segments of Wesley Chapel Boulevard to the south are two lanes, but the roadway at Lexington Oaks is four lanes. The widening will extend to just north of Magnolia Boulevard. Bike lanes, a median, sidewalks on the eastern side of the boulevard and a multiuse trail also are included in the road design.

Some patients cant talk for an extended time, so Ill tell my story to them. But most of them, they love talking about the good old days, when they were younger, what they used to do, she said. The volunteer work has influenced her career path. Shes studying health science at USF, with plans to continue her education and pursue a career in hospice nursing. I always knew I wanted to be in the medical field, said Urban, who attended Sunlake High School, Rushe Middle School and Lake Myrtle Elementary. She had considered possible careers in anesthesiology or public health. But, when she began volunteering at Gulfside, she realized she wanted to become a hospice nurse. I always knew I had a connection with elderly people. My time here, in just a few weeks I realized that I loved it here. I loved the atmosphere. I loved talking with the patients. I thought, Hey, this is something I want to do., she said. I come in here and I talk with the patients a lot. I just feel like I fit in. Yes, it is very sad, when I come back the next week and there isnt a patient that I talked to, but I feel like I have a calling here. I can do the work here, so I need to be here, she said.She attended the conference in San Diego with her mom and her grandmother.Her grandmother is Carol Antrim, of Lutz. Her parents are Suzette Urban, the principals secretary at Sand Pine Elementary, and her dad, Joseph Urban, an electrical inspector for Pasco County. Urban lives with her parents in Land O Lakes. The young woman encourages anyone who has ever considered volunteering, to give it a try. It doesnt matter whether the volunteer is young or old, or what kind of work they do, she said. You could volunteer at the animal shelter, at the hospital, youth centers, rec centers, anywhere. It really helps you find something thats greater than yourself, Urban said. You get that satisfaction: You know youve helped somebody. learning, Heller said. Entering that site, Heller said, you travel through a beautiful Florida wetland. A cypress swamp, water, wildlife, a beautiful canopy of trees. We aim for that to become an environmental science education area, he said, adding that Academy at the Lakes vision includes classrooms and boardwalks, and perhaps an observation tower. It would be a place, Heller said, where, not only the children from Academy at the Lakes can learn to be good stewards of this gift of the fragile ecosystem, but children from other schools would be able to attend environmental programs, too. The site is just off State Road 54, in a rapidly developing area in Land O Lakes. When youre here at Panera and RaceTrac, youre in the heart of suburbia. You go 200 yards up 20 Mile Level Road and youre in Old Florida. What we want to do is preserve this as Old Florida and use it as a community educational tool, Heller said. Theres also the possibility of using some of the schools land at that site for a first-rate aquatic swimming center, with an Olympic swimming pool, he said. Were looking at partnering with someone else. Other potential plans include work at the schools existing campuses. Theres talk of expanding the schools early childhood center. Moving the lower division would allow the school to increase its middle and high school enrollments. Other potential plans include adding a new robotics and technology center, adding a Maker Space and making other campus improvements, such as a quadrangle in front of McCormick Hall, Heller said. Heller expects the school to begin moving on some, or all, of these ideas within the next few years, but said theres no specific timetable or cost estimate available yet for the schools future expansion plans.

16A Its been nearly a decade since Tom Fisher last roamed the sidelines, but his name wont soon be forgotten at Zephyrhills High School. The schools Oct. 27 homecoming festivities added greater significance, when Zephyrhills Bulldog Stadium was formally renamed Tom Fisher Field. The dedication ceremony, held at midfield and attended by Fisher, drew dozens of former players and coaches, as well as the longtime coachs family members and friends. Thousands of Bulldogs faithful, were there, too in a show of respect for Fisher, who retired after the 2008 season, following 21 years as head coach. He is the football programs winningest coach (124-86), leading Bulldogs teams to eight playoff berths, four conference championships and three district titles; he also was a four-time conference coach of the year. Fisher, now 65, still attends several Zephyrhills games each year, sometimes wishing he was still donning a headset and calling plays. I miss it a lot, Fisher said, but, all these great kids that Ive coached over the years, for them to come back, I really appreciate it. Not one to wax poetic about his coaching career, Fisher said many of the 20 years all blend together. Working with the kids was great; footballs been my life, he said. As coach, Fisher influenced hundreds, if not thousands of lives. Among them is current Bulldogs coach Nick Carroll, who has guided the program to two consecutive eight-win seasons including Friday nights 62-0 romp of Hudson High School. Carroll was apart of Fishers 1996-1997 playoff team. He has vivid memories of that season. We had a lot of success; won a lot of football games. For us to get the first playoff win for him, it was a special moment for him, and for us, Carroll said. Fishers coaching demeanor isnt lost on Carroll, either. He was old-school, man, Carroll said. You didnt mess with coach Fisher. If his lip ever curled, he was mad. I didnt cause him no trouble, he added. Carroll noted several of his assistants, including B.J. Booker, Bryan Thomas and Troy Hochstetler, also played for Fisher at some point. They say great leaders develop great leaders, so theres four of us right there that have come back and kind of stepped in his role, and made a chance tonot build it but have success the first two years we came here to Zephyrhills. Reggie Roberts, who coached the Bulldogs from 2010 to 2015, was another former playerand team captain of Fishers.Roberts, now a captain with the Zephyrhills Police Department, recalls Fisher as a hard-nosed, no-nonsense coach. Those were the days when you didnt have water breaks every 30 minutes and we had to grind, Roberts said. Sometimes as we grow up, we always have people that mold us, and he was one of them, especially coming back here to coach, you bet that was the first phone call I made. But, Roberts also remembers Fisher for his acumen and attention to detail. Youre talking about somebody that studied game filmhe was a student of the game, Roberts said. I wish when I was coaching I could be half as good as he was watching video and actually coming up with a game plan. He was excellent at that. We may not have been as talented as a lot of people, but we played a lot better than a lot of people because we were prepared. Thats one thing I can say about him he got us prepared. The Pasco County School Board approved the field renaming in June, after the idea was presented by Zephyrhills school officials. Zephyrhills High School athletic director Bruce Cimorelli said it was about time Fisher received a real good sendoff. He deserves it quite a bit, Cimorelli said. Tom did a great job. He took a mentoring to the kids. He was a great person to work for, so its something thats well-deserved.

The history Tampas Jewish community likewise runs deep dating back more than 170 years. The Tampa Bay History Center, in partnership with the Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library, recently had a presentation documenting the history of Tampas Jewish settlers. The Oct. 26 event was led by Dr. Carl Zeilonka, archives chair at Congregation Schaarai Zedek, who is also a docent at the history center. He outlined the history of Tampas Jewish population, the economic role of Jewish-owned businesses and the role of Jewish residents in politics, during an hourlong interactive discussion that drew dozens of attendees. Tampas first documented Jewish settler is Emaline Quentz Miley, who arrived in 1844 via South Carolina. Miley and her husband, Bill, settled in the Odessa area, Zeilonka said. Interestingly, they are believed to have planted Hillsborough Countys first citrus trees. More Jews, mainly of Eastern European descent, began immigrating to Tampa during the American Civil War, as the Florida frontier became attractive to merchants and businessman. Many operated produce businesses, dry goods stores, oyster bars and lumber mills. It led to Jews entering public service in Hillsborough County, beginning in 1871 with Charles Slager and Isidore Blumenthal. Slager was first appointed as postmaster of Tampa. He later served as Hillsborough Countys sheriff and tax collector, and as a school board member. Blumenthal, meanwhile, was appointed to the Hillsborough County Commission. Many Jewish businesses had closed by the mid-1870s due to the presence of a yellow fever epidemic, Zielonka said. Other factors were to blame, too, he said, including the Franco-Prussian War preventing the export of Cedar, and the cattle industry swelling in Fort Meade instead of Tampa.The 1870s were a real era of problems, Zielonka said. It wasnt long until Jewish immigration picked up again, however. Discoveries of phosphate reserves, a railroad system and cigar factories brought Jewish merchants back to Tampa in the 1880s, Zielonka explained. It opened up the community to tourism, to trade, to every type of commerce you can imagine. It really began the explosion of Tampa as a city, Zielonka said. It provided a lot of good opportunities for Jewish businessman to come in, and they came from all over, either directly of European immigrants or children of European immigrants. Two of the most successful merchants were Abe and Issac Maas. In 1886, they founded Maas Brothers department store. It grew from a small 23-by-90-foot store to a chain of 39 stores across Florida. The Maas Brothers brand went defunct in 1991 when it was merged into the Burdines department store chain, which later rebranded as Macys. By 1890, there were more than 20 Jewish families living in Tampa. That spurred the formation of the citys first synagogue in 1894, Congregation Shaarai Zedek, which means Gates of Righteousness. The first standalone building, built in 1899, was located at 1209 N. Florida Ave. The congregation steered the formation of Tampas first Jewish social organization, first Jewish womens organization and first Jewish cemetery. What do we do best? We organize. And, it was time to organize, Zielonka said of Tampas Jewish community in the 1890s. The early 1900s were also noteworthy for Tampas Jewish community. A second synagogue, Congregation Rodeph Sholom, was founded in 1902. The citys first Jewish day school The Hebrew School was formed in 1915. The school shut down in 1917 after falling behind on mortgage payments, however. And, the citys first Jewish newspaper, Florida Jewish Weekly, was founded in 1924. It was the first of many Jewish newspapers formed over the years in Tampa. Zielonka pointed out that Jews were very prominent in Ybor City around this timeframe. He said than 80 Jewish stores and buildings sprouted up in Ybor City during the first half of the 20th century. They were very common, all over the place. Max Argintar Menswear was the last Jewish business to survive in Ybor. It opened in 1908 and closed in 2004. Fast-forward to the World War II period. Hundreds of Jewish soldiers came to Tampa throughout the war, being stationed at one of the citys three air force bases MacDill, Henderson Field and Drew Field. Moreover, 39 of the 65 families at Shaarai Zedek had someone who served in the war. The congregation frequently sponsored Passover Seders at the old Hillsborough Hotel, an effort to support Jewish troops. The Jewish community embraced their soldiers that were here, and those that also served in the war, Zielonka said.Following the war, many Jewish servicemen settled in Tampa and established families, further strengthening the community.The timeframe also marked the early days of Tampa Jews becoming influential political figures. Zielonka mentioned Judge Harry N. Sandler, who was speaker of the Florida House of Representatives from 1932 to 1935. Sandler is responsible for many laws related to workers compensation. The speaker noted several Jewish women, too, later became pioneers for their gender in the political realm. Cecile Waterman Essrig was the first Jewish woman elected to political office in Hillsborough County, becoming a school board member in 1967. Helen Gordon Davis was another, becoming the first Jewish Hillsborough County woman elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 1974. She also served in the Florida Senate. Sandy Freedman was the first Jewish woman elected as Mayor of Tampa, in 1986. Meanwhile, the Jewish community has seen other developments within the last 40 years. The TOP (Tampa, Orlando, Pinellas) Jewish Foundation was formed in 1980. The Jewish Press of Tampa was formed in 1988. The popular paper, started by Jim and Karen Dawkins, still publishes today. The Hillel Academy, which formed in 1970 at Rodeph Sholom, relocated to a 10acre campus on Fletcher Avenue in 1992. The Weinberg Village Assisted Living Facility, too, was established in 1995, in Citrus Park. The Jewish community most recently celebrated the opening of the Bryan Glazer Family JCC in December 2016. Located at the site of the historic Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory building on North Howard Avenue, it now totals more than 4,400 members. Its a busy place, Zielonka said. The turn of the 21st century saw more Jewish families moving to south Tampa, creating a need for another Jewish Community Center, he explained. The demographics of Tampa are very different than they were 20 years ago, Zielonka said. The Jewish community is 50 percent in the south and growing. New people moving to town want to live in south Tampa because its close to where the action is. Exploring Tampas Jewish historyCOURTESY OF TAMPA BAY HISTORY CENTER
