Voters approved it in a 2016 referendum. Lawmakers passed a law regulating it, effective January 2017. Cities and counties generally are writing local ordinances in line with state law to permit dispensaries, but limit their locations. Local governments, however, do have the option to ban them. Pasco County commissioners are expected to vote on an ordinance in November that will treat medical marijuana dispensaries as pharmacies and prohibit them from operating within 500 feet of public and private schools. The full impact of legalized medical marijuana, also known as medical cannabis, is a work-in-progress, with potential for legislators to tinker with the law in 2018. A Community Awareness Series, hosted by the Pasco-Hernando State Colleges Porter Campus, took on the issue at its Medical Marijuana Legalization and Regulation Symposium on Oct. 26. About 100 people attended the seminar, which was open to students, faculty and the public. The college wants to bring dialogue and conversation to the issues that can affect our lives, said Kevin O Farrell, provost at the Porter Campus. Speakers included Keith Stolte, an ophthalmologist, who owns Stolte Eye Center in Spring Hill; and, Victoria Walker, media relations for Trulieve, one of 17 state approved When the dumpster arrives at Land O Lakes Community Park, thats a sure sign that the carnival equipment to set up the Midway is soon to follow, according to Doug Hutchinson, coordinator for the Land O Lakes SwampFest. SwampFest 2017 will feature a few new twists, according to Hutchinson, the longtime coordinator of the community fair. First off, the event will be using Heritage Stage, the newly opened stage at Land O Lakes Community Park. Were pretty excited about that, Hutchinson said, noting the ones who seem most delighted about the stage are the dance groups that will be performing on it. When I told them that we were going to be on the stage, not under a tent, they were all excited, he said. Its so good for the community. The entertainment lineup for this years Pasco County Fire Rescue No. 37 has added ambulance service. The station is at the entrance to Ballantrae in Land O Lakes. The new service became effective on Sept. 1. Six paramedics and emergency medical technicians have been added, to provide 24hour coverage for the rescue unit. The station, which is at 18105 State Road 54, is currently using one of the departments spare vehicles until the new squad arrives, which is expected within a month. Division Chief Shawn Whited said the service area for the new ambulance is essentially Stonegate to the east and Odessa to the west. Before the new ambulance service was added, the area was being served by an ambulance coming from the fire station in Trinity, or from the other Land O Lakes station, which is at U.S. 41 and State Road 54, Whited said. If the ambulance for Land O Lakes was out, because that was the only ambulance for Land O Lakes, wed get one from either Wesley Chapel or Trinity, Whited said. We had a big gap there, he said. The county has been able to send emergency responders because all of the countys fire trucks have advanced life support, but they had to wait for a rescue unitPasco gets beefed up emergency services Land O Lakes SwampFest looks to take center stage Pasco commissioner receives trade association honorPasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey has been honored by a local chapter of the Organization of Women in International Trade as the International Person of the Year. Starkey received her award at the Annual Scholarship & International Person of the Year Awards Dinner, at the Tampa Yacht Club in Tampa, on Oct. 26, according to a news release from the Pasco Economic Development Council. The trade organization advocates for women in international business. The Tampa Bay Chapter, one of more than 30 chapters worldwide, was formed in 1997. The board of directors chose Starkey for her leadership in the promotion of international business, trade and education within the Tampa Bay community, the organizations president, Christyna Doege, said in a written statement. Starkey traces her passion for international trade through her familys history. My mother was raised in the Philippines, where our family once traded in hemp and copra, said Starkey during her acceptance speech. My stepfather was an international armaments distributor, and my aunt was an importer of goods from the Philippines. Starkey is co-founder of the AmSkills program, which operates in Pasco, Pinellas and Hernando counties. AmSkills is a Tampa Bay initiative that aids high school students, adults and veterans seeking manufacturing jobs.

But, before children could run bases at the new ball fields or play hopscotch at the playground, the “premier” park got its official unveiling at a ceremony on Oct. 31. About 30 people attended, including members of the Starkey family, the development team for the master-planned Starkey Ranch community, all five of the current Pasco County commissioners, school board members, and Pasco County School Superintendent Kurt Browning. “It’s a first-class park, and I hope it’s the beginning of what all parks in Pasco will look like,” said Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. “This should set the bar for all the parks.” An R.O.T.C. color guard presented the colors during the Pledge of Allegiance. River Ridge High School students with the Knights of Jazz entertained. Guests enjoyed a catered luncheon. The ribbon cutting marked the completion of the first phase of what is estimated to be a $14 million project, spread over several years. Two additional phases are planned. No construction date is scheduled for the next phase. The park is being completed on a pay-as-you-go plan. The county budgeted about $7.3 million for the initial design and construction of the park. The county, Pasco County Schools and Wheelock Street Capital agreed to a public/private partnership to build it. The partnership was the first of its kind in Pasco. Once completed, the shared site is expected to have 14 ball fields, a library, gymnasium, media center, tennis and basketball courts, a paved trail, a black-box theater, and a school for elementary and middle school students. The school will be built on pastureland adjacent to the park, with an anticipated opening in August 2021. “That might sound like a long time off,” said Browning. “But, in school years…that’s short.” The district park is in Odessa, off the main entrance into the master-planned community of Starkey Ranch, at 2500 Heart Pine Drive. The newly dedicated park has a playground, pavilion, three multi-purpose fields, practice fields, a softball field, a paved trail, concession building, restrooms and a maintenance building. The seed for the park began with talks between county and school board officials. Initially, plans were to co-locate county and school district facilities. But, then in 2013, the school district suggested a more ambitious approach to share facilities and create the public/private partnership. “They took a chance to get this done,” said Dan Green, a principal at Wheelock Street Capital and developer of Starkey Ranch. “But, it’s all coming together to make this a premier place to live in Tampa Bay.” Construction on Starkey Ranch was just getting started in 2014, said Matt Call, project director for Starkey Ranch/Wheelock Communities. “We had to build all the infrastructure into the park,” he said. “There was no Heart Pine Drive. This was just a cattle field.” Per the cooperative agreement, the developer initially will pay for operation and maintenance at the park, with the county gradually sharing in the costs. By the eighth year, the county will have full responsibility for the park. The arrangement helped the county and school board leverage available taxpayer funds for the project, said Browning. For instance, the school’s gymnasium, media center, library and black-box theater will be shared among residents and students. “We want to keep the costs off the taxpayers,” he said. Pasco County Commissioner Mike Wells said the county has come a long way in developing its park system since his days playing soccer as a teenager. He recalled a do-it-yourself method of mowing a playing field in his neighborhood the night before a soccer match. “This is very exciting,” he said. “I can’t wait to see thousands and thousands of our youth out here enjoying this.” KATHY STEELEMembers of the Starkey family were recognized for their vision in fostering the Starkey Ranch District Park. They were joined o n stage by Pasco County commissioners and Starkey Ranch developers.

You get a nagging injury. Head over to the chiropractor for an adjustment. You feel better, and dont return. That is, until the pain returns. Unfortunately, thats really the wrong approach,Ž says Dr. Barnabas Bickerton, D.C. of The Joint chiropractic clinic in New Tampa Center. Chiropractic is really about preventative care and correcting our bad body mechanics.Ž No one understands this more than The Joints president of business operations, Alex Pierroutsakos. After a tragic car accident at the age of 23 left him without a right arm, and with severe nerve damage, he slowly came to understand the real benefits of chiropractic medicine. At first there were a lot of surgeries, physical therapy and message therapy, but there was also a lot of pain. Fortunately he was able to avoid the pitfalls of opioids, but when the pain would get severe, hed go in for an adjustment. Then pretty much ignore the urging of his chiropractor to schedule regular visits. After many years of this revolving door approach he recognized that maybe chiropractic care is a lifestyle, like his doctor had insisted, instead of the quick fix he was using it as. It finally dawned on me that because of my injuries my body is obviously out of alignment. Its easy to see now how its improved my overall health and well-being,Ž he waxed reflectively. Through manual manipulation of the spine chiropractic care works to restore and maintain proper communication from your brain to your body by relieving what chiropractors refer to as subluxation, or spinal misalignment. Restoring proper alignment can assist with relief of back and neck pain, migraines, joint discomfort, as well as sciatica and fibromyalgia. Dr. Bickerton proudly added, The Joints philosophy is a core value in the practice of chiropractic. Im grateful to be working with them, specifically because the people I work closely with understand this approach and enthusiastically share my dedication to our purpose in the community.Ž Whatever symptoms you may be experiencing, The Joint invites you to join the millions who have a found a pathway to wellness with chiropractic's natural, drug-free approach to healthcare. You never need an appointment or referral to visit them. To find out more call or check out The Joints website.

Stolte began treating patients with medical marijuana as soon as the state law took effect on Jan. 3. He previously had researched medical marijuana and believed in its benefits for a host of ailments, in addition to glaucoma. “We’re changing lives,” Stolte said. “If anybody told me we’d be getting the results we’re getting, I wouldn’t have believed them.” His first patient was a teenage girl who was home-schooled due to a social anxiety disorder. “She couldn’t leave the house,” Stolte said. Within a month of starting treatment, she enrolled in a local high school, and soon after, joined the cheerleading squad. “That’s something else,” he said. Laurie Oliver, practice manager at Stolte Eye Center, was a medical marijuana skeptic when she first learned of plans to see medical marijuana patients. “I’m an old-fashioned Southern woman,” she said. “You were taught marijuana was awful.” But, the patients changed her mind, including an elderly woman with tremors who shook so badly she couldn’t feed herself. The woman came by the office soon after starting medical marijuana to proudly display a blue shirt, without a food crumb or stain on it. “She just wanted to feed herself before she dies,” said Oliver. Patients’ success stories are starting to change everyone’s attitudes, Stolte said. “We are starting to drift from demonization of marijuana, and this could be really good,” he said. The stigma that attaches to marijuana use also leads to misconceptions about dispensaries, said Walker. They aren’t “head” shops with hippies in sandals behind the counter selling weed and bongs. In fact, state law bans the sale of the whole marijuana plant, Walker said. “There is no smoking,” Walker said, adding anyone who walks into a dispensary will find a professional, medical office environment. Security measures are mandated by law. Trulieve stores typically have about 40 cameras. The same tight security is maintained at its facility in Tallahassee, where the cannabis plants are grown and medical marijuana products are manufactured. Engineers and scientists work in Trulieve’s laboratory to develop and test different strains of cannabis. Plants are pesticide-free and are grown indoors. Products are offered in a variety of forms, including vaporizers, nasal spray, tinctures, topical creams, oral syringes and capsules. They may contain two of the main ingredients found in marijuana plants – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD). The more common ingredient is THC, which can produce the “high” associated with marijuana. But CBD, which can’t produce a high, is becoming more popular with doctors because it can produce fewer side effects, Stolte said. Edibles are legal, but Walker said dispensaries are waiting on rules regarding packaging and size before introducing them. When they come, she said, “It will be very anti-attractive to minor children.” The state is closely monitoring this fledging medical marijuana industry. Dispensaries are capped statewide at 17. Each one is allowed to own and operate 25 retail stores. Trulieve has 10 locations, with stores opening soon in North Fort Myers and Orlando. Stores are open seven days a week. “We treat them just like a pharmacy,” Walker said. Because state law gives cities and counties the option to ban dispensaries, Walker said, “It’s really up to local communities and towns to let us in.” Doctors and patients also have regulations. Doctors aren’t permitted to dispense medical marijuana. Doctors are not allowed to write a prescription, either, because marijuana is considered a controlled substance under federal law. Physicians also must take a state mandated two-hour course and register with the state before they are qualified to “recommend” medical marijuana. With a recommendation letter in hand, patients visit a dispensary to receive their medication. Patients must register on a confidential state database, and they have to wait about 30 days to receive a card. Medical marijuana is dispensed in 70-day increments. Once the 70 days expires, a patient can renew the recommendation for another 70 days. This can be done sometimes by phone but, about every six months, there must be a face-to-face visit with a doctor. By law, 10 diseases are listed as eligible for medical marijuana including epilepsy, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, Crohn’s and Parkinson’s. But, the law also includes “medical conditions of the same kind or class as or comparable” to those specifically listed. That gives doctors some discretion in approving patients who don’t neatly fit any of the approved categories, Stolte said. He also noted that medical marijuana could play a role in addressing the opioid epidemic. “You can kill yourself with opioids. You can’t kill yourself with marijuana,” Stolte said. “It (marijuana) is not a gateway drug. It’s an exit drug.” Research is beginning to show that medical marijuana reduces opioid prescriptions and overdose deaths, he added. “We’re treating people who have failed on everything else out there,” Stolte said. The next event in the Community Awareness Series will be “DUI (Driving Under the Influence) Awareness Seminar” on Nov. 15 from 11 a.m. to noon. It will be at Pasco-Hernando State College, 2727 Mansfield Blvd., in Wesley Chapel, in the Conference Center, Building B, Room 303.MARIJUANA, from page 1A Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation, Pinellas Economic Development and Pasco EDC. Starkey also supports the Tampa Bay Export Alliance. Additionally, Starkey helped launch the International Program at the Pasco EDC, and has been chairwoman of the International Committee since 2016. The committee develops strategies, alliances, resources and programs to increase export sales from Pasco, create jobs through foreign investments, and make Pasco business competitive in international markets. “We are so appreciative of all of her efforts and are ecstatic to see her honored for all of her hard work,” said Bill Cronin, president and chief executive officer of the Pasco EDC.STARKEY, from page 1A to transport patients to the hospital, Whited said. Getting the additional coverage is important because population continues to increase in the area near Station 37, he said, noting that Bexley, Longlake Ranch and Concord Station are growing communities. “That Land O’ Lakes area between the Suncoast Parkway and (U.S.) 41 is one of the largest growing areas in Pasco County,” Whited said. “With all of those homes, we want to make sure they have proper fire and EMS coverage in there. “Now, if you’re having a true medical emergency, like a heart attack or a stroke, we can get you to the hospital faster — without having to wait for that unit to come from Land O’ Lakes or Trinity or Wesley Chapel,” he said.EMERGENCY, from page 1A event includes Nunes at Night, on Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. and 3-Dom Band, on Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. On Nov. 12, there’s a larger slate of entertainers, with Nicole’s Dance Center at noon; Show on the Road at 1 p.m.; Beyond Chaotic at 2 p.m., and Suncoast Dance at 3 p.m.The event also is adding some food trucks this year, in addition to the foods that can be purchased on the Midway, Hutchinson said. Otherwise, the rides and the food on the Midway will be similar to those at the event last year. There are also plans for a beer garden, Hutchinson said, but added that he was awaiting official approval. Armbands for unlimited rides will be sold in advance for $15 and at the Midway for $25, Hutchinson said. Parking is free on Nov. 9, the preview night, and $5 on other days of the festival. The event is getting more popular every year, Hutchinson said, noting it tends to attract between 500 and 750 people on Friday night and Sunday, and about 2,000 on Saturday. On Saturdays, families generally come during the day, with a younger crowd at night, he said. SwampFest started out as a community carnival, then evolved into the Flapjack Festival, which eventually moved to Dade City and then died. This event is smaller than Flapjack was and that’s what organizers want it to be, Hutchinson said. “We want it to be more of a community fair.” Proceeds from SwampFest benefit the venues that help sell the tickets and Land O’ Lakes High School’s athletic booster club, where they benefit the whole school. “We don’t want to build something for one team and use all of the money for that,” Hutchinson said. “It’s better to use that money for items that benefit everyone.” For instance, for a few years in a row, SwampFest proceeds were used to purchase equipment for the weight room, he said. That benefits all students, not just athletes, he said. “They have a weightlifting class.” Event proceeds also paid for the high school’s sign, which is out near Land O’ Lakes Boulevard, also known as U.S. 41. “It takes some really dedicated people to pull this thing off,” Hutchinson said, noting there’s about eight or 10, who really do a lot of the work. “It takes months to put it together,” he said, and then, at the event, there are scores of volunteers who help with parking, garbage collection and other chores. SWAMPFEST, from page 1A Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY FIRE RESCUEPasco County Fire Rescue No. 37 is located in a high-growth area off County Road 54, near the Ballantrae and Bexley subdivisions.

Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comNearly two dozen high school golfers, boys and girls, from The Laker/Lutz News Coverage area competed in the 2017 Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) state tournament, which ran Oct. 31 to Nov. 8.Sunlake High’s Jordan Sarhaddi was one of the standouts. The junior tied for 16th in the 2A boys meet, shooting a +13 (75-82—157) at El Campeon Course at the Mission Inn Resort & Club in Orlando. Only two other golfers from The Laker/Lutz News coverage area secured top 20 finishes: Freedom High senior Cy Storlien, who tied for 14th in the boys 3A tournament, and Freedom High junior Helena Noel, who tied for 17th in the girls 3A tournament. Both were individual qualifiers. Sarhaddi’s strong showing at states is no surprise. He took first place at districts and runner-up at regionals — firing 69 at both meets. The state tournament, however, presented unique challenges. There were elevation changes of more than 80 feet, cumbersome wind conditions and fast, complex greens. Simply, the course “exposes every part of your game,” Sarhaddi said. “The course was playing real difficult. There are not many low scores out there,” said Sarhaddi. “I feel like I played better than my score showed both days, but it’s a tough golf course,” he said. Sarhaddi last reached states as a freshman in 2015, where he finished 30th after shooting +30 over par. Scores aside, Sarhaddi savored the chance to test his skill set and compete alongside his Sunlake teammates at the state meet. The Seahawks finished 12th out of 16 teams in 2A. “It’s definitely fun whenever you get to go with the guys who you’ve spent the entire season with and have practiced with them. You set your goals at the beginning of the season and this is what we wanted — we wanted to make it to states,” Sarhaddi said. “We made it a lot of fun. It’s a great group of guys that we have, and they’re all fun to be around,” he added. The state meet caps off what’s been a breakout campaign for Sarhaddi in 2017. The Land O’ Lakes resident currently ranks fourth on the Premier Junior Golf Tour in the boys 16-18 division, with first place finishes at the St. Petersburg Country Club Junior Championship in May and the Crescent Oaks Junior Open in February. He also ranks 13th on the Florida Junior Tour in the boys 16-18 division, earning several top 20 finishes at sanctioned tournaments over the summer. Those performances have since caught the eye of Division I college programs, including the University of Florida and the University of Central Florida. Sarhaddi, meanwhile, is gearing up for another busy offseason and a daily practice schedule that consists of countless hours of swing drills and short game work. “I’m definitely going to stick with it. I’m going to keep the practice schedule going everyday and just really try to better myself — work harder with the practice, do everything I can to take care of my body and my golf swing,” Sarhaddi said. “In the summer, I’ll try to qualify for the U.S. Junior Amateur and the U.S. Amateur. I really had a great summer this past summer, so I’m just really going to try to build on it and work up for the bigger tournaments coming up.” Besides Sunlake, other local schools represented at states included Pasco High School (boys), Steinbrenner High School (girls) and Zephyrhills High School (girls). Wiregrass Ranch High freshman Norah Catlin was an individual qualifier in the 3A girls meet. Pasco all-star football game on tap for Dec. 7 Additional Q&A with Sunlake’s Jordan SarhaddiOn favorite moment from this past season:“Regionals was probably the best that I shot, just because that even though I shot a 69, I started off much worse there, and I had to really fight back. I think I was 3 over par through six holes, and I really fought back. That was probably the best 69 I’ve ever shot as far as how I was playing because I really wasn’t playing that great, but I was able to scratch and claw, and make a few birdies coming in. …That was probably the best one because the stakes were the highest, too. We needed a good score to actually make it to states, which has been the goal the entire year.”On his biggest golf strength:“My short game has really been good for me the past three or four years because I’ve learned to salvage good rounds out of not playing so well— not hitting the ball as well as I know I can— but still being able to grind out pars and shoot decent scores, knowing I can rely on my short game even though I’m not hitting it great. I just know my own game. That’s one of my strengths as well, just knowing my own game and knowing how to almost outplay my competitors. Even when I’m not hitting as well as they are, I know when the right moments are to come up clutch with a par save or something. That’s where I’ve really leaned on my short game, and I work on that really hard because it’s saved me many times, and it will continue to do so probably in the future.”On what he’s looking to improve:“I haven’t always been the most consistent ball striker as far as getting it to the green. Usually my iron play is a bit off, which exactly what was off at states, which is why I struggled in the last round.”On which pro golfer he idolizes:“My favorite ever is Tiger Woods. He’s always been the grinder, and he’s always known how to win and to close out tournaments. That’s the kind of player I try to be. I don’t think there’s anyone that I try to model my game after, but he’s definitely someone I look up to as far as what I’d like to be and what I’d like to do, if I do end up making it pro. That’s someone to really follow as a role model for what he’s done on the golf course.” Sunlake golfer among local standouts at states FILESunlake High junior Jordan Sarhaddi tied for 16th at the FHSAA 2A boys state golf meet, held Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 at El Campeon Course at the Mission Inn Resort & Club in Orlando.By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comIt’s back. Football fans again will be able to see Pasco County’s top senior football players face off on one field, at the 2017 Pasco County East-West Classic. The third annual all-star showcase is slated for Dec. 7 at 7 p.m., at Sunlake Field, 3023 Sunlake Blvd., in Land O’ Lakes. The game, organized by the Pasco County Fellowship of Christian Athletes, features the top senior players from each of the 15 public high schools in Pasco County. It provides one last chance to perform in front of college recruiters, many of whom attend the game from across the Southeast region. The game also has proven to be a hit among fans, drawing more than 2,000 attendees its first two years. The series is tied 1-1. Players on the East team will represent Land O’ Lakes, Wiregrass Ranch, Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills, Pasco, Bishop McLaughlin and Zephyrhills Christian Academy. Players on the West team will represent River Ridge, Ridgewood, Mitchell, Anclote, Hudson, Fivay, Gulf and Sunlake. Athletes from the newly opened Cypress Creek Middle High will be represented in next year’s game, as the school doesn’t have a 2017-2018 senior class. Rosters were selected last month in a “draft day” format, where high school coaches bantered and bartered, doing their best to present their athletes as worthy of a spot. After much deliberation, all-star teams were whittled down to the best 40 players in the East and best 40 players in the West. An all-star cheerleader team also has been assembled for the showcase.

Its purpose was quite different during World War II, however.The Tampa Bay History Center, in partnership with the Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library, recently had a presentation documenting the history of MacDill Air Force Base.The event was led by Clete Belsom, a retired lieutenant colonel in the United States Air Force and a docent at the history center. Belsom, who volunteers once a week at MacDill, detailed how the air force base has evolved over decades. He also described the important role the base has played in the areas history and economy, during an hourlong interactive discussion. As war clouds gathered in the late 1930s, the United States War Department ordered the development of six new strategic bases nationwide. Interestingly enough, Tampa was chosen over Arcadia for the countrys southeast base location. The War Department said, Wait a minute, Arcadias so isolated. It doesnt make sense. And, it really didnt make sense, Belsom said. MacDill was originally established as Southeast Air Base in 1939. It was later activated on April 16, 1941, dedicated after Col. Leslie MacDill, a pilot in the Army Air Corps who died in a plane crash in Washington D.C. He was an up-and-coming star and very, very well thought of; he wouldve done quite well, Belsom said. In its earliest years, MacDills mission was transitional training in the B-17 Flying Fortress. Maj. Clarence Tinker, an Osage Indian who went on to become the highest-ranking Native American in the military during World War II led MacDills operations in the beginning. The B-17...carried all of the heavy bombing load that the U.S. did in Europe during World War II. They specialized in daytime precision bombing, Belsom explained. Between 1942 and 1945, the 91st Bombardment Group which operated the B-17 Flying Fortress flew 9,571 combat missions throughout Europe. Of those missions, 197 airplanes were lost, 1,010 airmen were presumed killed or missing, and 960 crewmembers were taken as German prisoners of war. MacDill also hosted a number of bomber aircraft during the war, including the B-17, B26 Marauder and the B-29 Superfortress. Servicemen were trained to be pilots, gunners, engineers, mechanics, radio operators, navigators and other roles. MacDill also was home to other support units, including the Womens Army Corps and an all-black aviation engineer unit. Its estimated that 100,000 crewmembers were trained at MacDill during World War II, with 15,000 stationed at the base at any given time. At its apex, there also were 488 German POWs. How would you have liked to have been a German soldier...and you get sent to Florida? There was not a better outcome, Im sure, that a POW couldve had than these folks, Belsom said. Additionally, 20,000 residents of Hillsborough County were engaged in the war effort, while thousands more served in defense jobs. Another interesting fact: During 1942 MacDills first full year of operation there were 2,000 soldiers married in Hillsborough County. Throughout the 1950s and early 1960s MacDill trained crews for the B-29, B-50 and B-47the first swept wing strategic bomber in inventory, Belsom explained. The base later transitioned to Tactical Air Command, stationing fighter wings like F-4s and F-16s up through the 1980s, he said. Belsom pointed out MacDill nearly closed in the earlyto mid-1990s after the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission identified it on a list of bases to be closed after all its tactical fighters were relocated to a base in Arizona. But, MacDills shutdown was averted because of the significance of U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command on foreign fighting activities, particularly the Middle East. It didnt hurt, either, that U.S. Reps. Sam Gibbons and Bill Young backed the air force base. They were very, very influential congressman, so Im sure they played a part in arguing why MacDill made sense to maintain, Belsom said. Today, the 6th Air Mobility Wing at MacDill performs air refueling, airlift, and contingency response missions for the U.S., and allied forces around the globe. Its also home to the KC-135 Stratotanker and the Gulfstream C-37A executive transport jet. MacDill, too, houses U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command. The bases establishment, meanwhile, has provided significant financial growth in the Tampa Bay community. Currently employing 15,000 military personnel and 3,700 civilians, the base, which sits on nearly 6,000 acres, has an estimated annual economic impact of $2.9 billion on the region. MacDill also has enhanced Tampa Bays culture, Belsom said. Much like the immigrants who came here to work in the cigar industry back in the late 1880s and the early 1900s, I think (MacDill) enriched the social climate of Tampa just by their presence, because they have a lot of folks who not just come here for two or three years, but then come back later and retire, Belsom said.

The Rotary Club became a commemorative partner with the Department of Defense in April and previously commemorated the service of George Voorhes, who completed three tours of duty in Vietnam, Graves noted. She offered these details from the event: Boy Scout Troop 149 served as the Color Guard, led by Alex Wayslik. The Rushe Middle School Band performed the StarSpangled Banner. The Keystone Community Church and Carrollwood Cultural Center choirs performed a medley of Armed Forces songs and God Bless America. A representative from U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis office presented a letter to the veterans, and state Rep. Danny Burgess presented the veterans with the 50th Vietnam Commemoration lapel pin. In 2015, then President Barack Obama signed a proclamation to honor those that served during the Vietnam era conflict between 1955 and 1975, regardless of location, Graves notes. She said the Wesley Chapel Noon Rotary Land O Lakes Satellite Club is proud to be a Commemorative Partner and plans more ceremonies in the future to honor those who served during the Vietnam War.
