COURTESY OF CRYSTAL LAGOON INC.The Crystal Lagoon at Epperson is expected to open in spring 2018, with festivities that will include Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps. Lois Cohen/Land O’ Lakes“I’m thankful for the nice weather. I’m so glad it’s finally cooled down,” said Lois Cohen, of Land O’ Lakes. But, that’s not all she’s grateful for. I’m thankful for all of the friends that I have in the Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club,” she added. For the holiday, Cohen said, “We’re having my family over for Thanksgiving. My husband is doing a whole menu,” she said, including German potato casserole and cranberry trifle. Rita Noble/Dade CityRita Noble, an avowed book lover, has been working at Hugh Embry Branch Library for 17 years. She said she’s grateful for her family and friends, and is excited by the prospect of her first grandchild who is due this spring. Noble said she’ll be making a “Thanksgiving dinner “with all of the fixins’.” Joshua & Stephanie Critser/ZephyrhillsStephanie Critser and her 3year-old son, Joshua, were enjoying a beautiful day at Zephyr Park recently — which offers an example of why the Zephyrhills woman is grateful this Thanksgiving. “I am very thankful that I am able to stay at home with him. I’m able to spend a lot of quality time with him. I haven’t always been able to do that, so this year, I am very thankful for that,” she said. The family will be celebrating Thanksgiving with her in-laws, she said. “My husband (Daniel) is making his mashed potatoes.” By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhether it’s for the expected arrival of a first grandchild, the ability to be a stayat-home mom, landing a new job, or savoring the sheer blessing of being alive to celebrate the holiday — people across The Laker/Lutz News coverage area have many reasons to celebrate this Thanksgiving. Those of us working at the newspaper, join them, in celebrating the holiday of gratitude and express our appreciation to you, our readers.PHOTOS BY B.C. MANIONGiving thanks, for life’s big and little blessings See more THANKS, page15A By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comLong before Heritage Stage existed, Sandy Graves envisioned a place where the community would gather, to watch performances and spend time together. The stage was completed this fall and Graves’ vision has begun to take shape. Recently, the stage was the centerpiece for an event to honor area veterans. Shortly after that, entertainers used it for performances during Land O’ Lakes SwampFest. Next, the Land O’ Lakes High School Band, the Pine View Middle School Band, the Pine View Middle School Dance Team and the Lake Myrtle Elementary School Choir will provide a holiday concert during Traditions on the Green. The free event, being held at the recently renamed Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., also will feature a visit from Santa, a tree lighting and a raffle on gift baskets, to raise money for the schools. “We’ll have cookies and warm apple cider, until it runs out,” Graves said. The event is set for Dec. 2, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and snacks, to the evening of performances presented by the Heritage Park Foundation and the Wesley Noon Rotary Land O’ Lakes Satellite club. Another event is planned for the afternoon of Dec. 10, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The event will include a food truck, a bounce house, a visit from Santa and, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., the Florida Orchestra Brass Quintet will perform “Holiday Pops” on the Heritage Park Stage. Again, spectators are advised to bring a blanket or lawn chair, to sit back and enjoy some music presented by Heritage Park, Classical Preparatory School and several other sponsors. Another event — the Land O’ Lakes Arts & Crafts & Seafood Festival, featuring The Battle of the Bands — is planned at the venue on Dec. 16 and Dec. 17, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Featured bands will be Priest, Rat Salad and Soul Circus Cowboys. And, there will be food, shopping and kids’ activities, as well. The event is family and pet friendly, and proceeds will benefit Pasco County Animal Services. Graves is delighted to see the stage being put to good use. “We’re so excited,” she said.Heritage Stage is becoming a community gathering place If you goTRADITIONS ON THE GREEN WHERE:The recently renamed Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd.WHEN:Dec. 2, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.COST:Admission is freeDETAILS:The even features performances by local schools and a visit from Santa.

The project, which will lengthen some turn lanes, currently is in design. The construction cost is about $752,000 and is included in the transportation departments fiscal year 2019 budget, according to the departments spokeswoman, Kris Carson.Changes will focus on the west side of the intersection by lengthening the eastbound rightand left-turn lanes on State Road 54. To accomplish this, the median on State Road 54 at Hunt Road will be altered to allow only right turns from Hunt onto State Road 54.Pasco County officials estimate design costs to be about $300,000. The turn-lane changes are considered an interim solution to the traffic congestion at this intersection. A permanent solution and a major reconstruction is the current focus of a study by a local task force that will make a recommendation to the countys Metropolitan Planning Organization. Those efforts began in 2015, and are expected to extend into 2018. The entire study includes the State 54/56 corridor, from Bruce B. Downs Boulevard on the east to U.S. 19 on the west. Currently, the focus 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. The Land O Lakes intersection is receiving most of the attention as one of the countys busiest intersections. There also is available funding, which the New Port Richey intersection lacks. Some options for State Road 54 and U.S. 41 include elevated lanes, as well as redesigns at ground level. Dedicated lanes for buses and express toll lanes also are being considered. The 17-member task force is working with the MPO as well as Pasco County Planning and Development, FDOT and consultants.Interim steps planned to improve 54/41 traffic flow COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY TAX COLLECTORS OFFICE Tax collectors Land O Lakes office moves slightly north

This year, I enjoyed four butternut squashes from our garden. I was only able to enjoy this harvest, though, because of bees. The bees and I have a win-win partnership. I plant flowers and vegetables. That gives bees a food source, and they, in turn, pollinate the plants. Bees and pollinators are important to people for many reasons: One-third of the food we eat comes from animal-pollinated plants. They help pollinate our native plants and wildflowers. They pollinate blueberries, an $82 million per year industry in Florida. Forage plants, used by meat and dairy industries, depend on pollinators to produce seed. More than 100 crops in the U.S., such as apples, squash, pumpkin, cranberries, onions, carrots and blueberries, benefit from pollination. But, there are concerns about bee decline. Several factors contribute to bee decline, including bee nutrition. Bees gather nectar and pollen from flowers. The nectar provides bees carbohydrates and minerals to help them with flight, colony maintenance and general daily activities. Pollen provides protein, fats, minerals and vitamins, and aids in the development of young bees. But, did you know that all pollen is not created equal? The nutritive components of pollen differ among plants. Bee nutrition is important to bee health and the development of young bees. A yard or garden with only a few plants may provide less pollen variety for the bees. However, a diverse garden can provide bees more flower choices, different pollen components and, hopefully, better nutrition. Eric Mader with the University of Minnesota explains, As a general rule, gardeners who want to conserve bees should provide a minimum of three plant species that bloom at any given time during the growing season. Flower diversity includes not only color (red, pink, white, orange, purple and yellow flowers), but also bloom periods, texture and height. Diversity in height can be achieved by planting groundcovers, flowers, vines, shrubs, grasses and trees. Plants that bloom throughout the year, especially late fall, winter, and early spring, provide bees important nutrition during winter. Add flowers to your garden that have different shapes, such as daisies, clusters, tubular flowers and bell-shaped flowers. Bees use fine and coarse textured plants (woody stems, leaves and grasses) for nesting materials. Plant in clumps, rather than as single plants, to attract more pollinators and provide nutritional benefits. Examples of great bee plants include American beautyberry, partridge pea, dotted horsemint, blanket flower, Walters viburnum, native milkweeds, frogfruit, larraflower, sunflower, cosmos, mint, African blue basil, salvia, pentas, fennel, dill, blackeyed Susan, grasses, ironweed, blackberry lily, hollies, redbud, saw palmetto, and many more. Plant a variety of flowers and create long-season food sources to provide bees better nutrition throughout the year. Thank a bee for its pollinator services as you enjoy your holiday meals. And, add a few more flowers to your yard or garden so a bee can have a nutritious, happy Thanksgiving.REFERENCES:Ellis, A., J.D. Ellis, M.K. OMalley, and C.M. Zettel Nalen. (2017).

5A Christmas at the Old Lutz School is coming up, tooPreparations are underway for the 38th annual Lutz Arts & Crafts Show, which is being held for the second year on the campus of Keystone Prep High School, 18105 Gunn Highway in Odessa. Were going to have over 300 vendors. And, theres a larger expanded food court, said Faith Sincich, co-chair of the event.She marvels at the transformation that takes place at the festival grounds, each year.You go out on Friday morning and you see a field, an empty field, and by Saturday morning you see a little village of tents set up. Its really incredible to see, Sincich said. As usual, there will be a great number of returning vendors, Sincich said. But, she noted, we have some new vendors with some new crafts. The two-day event is always a hit with families because of its festive holiday atmosphere and its unique shopping opportunities. Shoppers can peruse booths featuring handcrafted jewelry, original artwork, photography, woodcrafts and metal work, and plants and yard art, to name just a few. It is the primary annual fundraiser for the GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club. Proceeds from the event benefit hundreds, and I mean literally hundreds of charities and nonprofits that we support, Sincich said. The venue changed last year, from Lake Park to Keystone Prep. That didnt seem to hurt attendance, Sincich said. We thought that the attendance was about the same. Even so, organizers believe that attendance could increase this year. This year, now that more people are familiar with the new location, we expect more people, Sincich said. The new venue is also conveniently located for people from Pinellas County who want to check it out, she noted. Theres ample parking. Theres a lot more room for public parking at this facility than there was at the old Lake Park, Sincich said. This year, the event is on Dec. 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, but there is a $5 charge for parking collected by the school, which receives the proceeds. While the GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club gears up for its giant arts and crafts show, the Citizens for the Old Lutz School Building is preparing for its annual Christmas celebration at the school, 18819 U.S. 41 N. in Lutz. Two of the rooms will be set up with trains and displays around trains, said Stephanie Ensor, one of the event organizers. The museum will be open. We have a tree room, where some different organizations will be bringing a tree to represent their organization. They have nutcrackers on display, throughout the building. The hallway is decorated by Steinbrenner (High School) student ambassadors, Ensor added. There will be entertainment on select evenings, and more entertainers are welcome to sign up. There is no admission for the evenings at the schoolhouse, Ensor said, but there will be a barrel to collect nonperishable food items and unwrapped toys for those less fortunate. The breakfast with Santa event costs $4. The event is meant to serve as a thankyou to the community for its continued support, Ensor said. Its a great way for people to reconnect with people they havent seen in awhile, Ensor said. My daughters are 18 and 20 now. When Im up there, Im always running into someone I knew 15 years ago, when the kids were in kindergarten, she said. She enjoys the annual tradition at the schoolhouse. Its really neat.

November 22, 2017 A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION IN THE LAKER/LUTZ NEWS € 813-909-2800 € LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM There’s no place like in PASCO & NORTH HILLSBOROUGH T he second annual Holiday Festival is being hosted at Asturia — a masterplanned community in Odessa — on Saturday, Dec. 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Youngsters will enjoy a candy cane express train, face-painting elf, balloon-artist elf, holiday carnival games, meet-and-greet surprise holiday characters, holiday treats and, of course, sitting on Santa’s lap and telling him what they want for Christmas. And, when Holiday Festival guests are done playing, kids and their parents can tour Asturia’s beautifully decorated model homes. Ashton Woods, David Weekley Homes and ICI Homes are Asturia’s exclusive builders. All have model homes open daily with on-site agents to assist homebuyers in selecting their next residence. Ashton Woods’ newest model home is the Suwanee. This unique, one-story home features a two-car garage at the rear of the home. The Suwanee boasts four bedrooms, two baths and a spacious front porch. Total square footage is 2,024 square feet, and pricing begins at $274,990. Ashton Woods has also recently completed its Lincoln showcase home, which is move-in ready. This 2,368-square-feet home is two stories, and features three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Its spacious family room flows seamlessly into the kitchen, which features a large center island, upgraded granite countertops, custom backsplash, stainless steel appliances and 42-inch designer Timberlake cabinetry. All the bedrooms are located on the second floor, as well as the laundry room. ICI Homes is the community’s newest builder, and is opening its fully decorated Serena model in late December. This four-bedroom, threebath home is 2,217 square feet and features a large gathering room, spacious gourmet kitchen and an owner's suite with a master bath that leads into a large, double-entry, walk-in closet. An office or guest bedroom is off the home’s main living area, and two other bedrooms share a bathroom. The Serena has a two-car garage and begins at $329,900. David Weekley Homes also offers homes with the garage in the rear with eight distinct floor plans in its Cottage and Garden series. It also builds traditional floor plans in its Lake and Manor series, which combined offers 14 floor plans. All Asturia builders provide a wide variety of home sizes and architectural styles. Pricing begins in the mid $200,000s, and goes to over $500,000. AWARD WINNING AMENITY CENTER Everyone enjoys Asturia’s distinctive, 5,800-square-foot Amenity Center and Clubhouse, which earned the prestigious Silver Aurora for the Best Recreational Facility at the 2017 Southeast Building Conference. The Amenity Center incorporates a fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness center, covered outdoor living rooms, a luxurious resort-style swimming pool and expansive lawn areas for recreation. Asturia is a kid-friendly, family oriented lifestyle surrounded by miles of multi-use trails, interspersed with playgrounds, dog parks and pocket parks. The community has wide, meadow-like spaces, lovely ponds, thick stands of cypress and hardwood trees, and large tracts of scenic wetlands. SECOND PHASE OPENS It’s been only two years since Asturia began selling homes, and already the award-winning development has moved into its second phase.This new second phase has 157 large home sites, adding to Asturia’s first phase of 248 lots. Most Asturia homes back up to conservation areas, and all provide homeowners privacy and a peaceful, quiet surrounding. Many families have been waiting for Asturia’s second phase to open because its 55and 65-foot lots offer some of the best woodland conservation views in the entire community. A boardwalk has been built to connect the two smaller neighborhoods within Phase II, which will tie into the community’s multi-use pathway that meanders for miles through residential areas, parks, playgrounds and the Amenity Center. ABOUT ASTURIA When Asturia’s development is complete in a few years, it will likely have less than 550 single-family homes.What makes Asturia stand out from other new home developments in the area is its smaller size. Other nearby planned communities have between 3,000 to over 5,000 homes, and are looking at several years of construction.Asturia is a mixed-use, masterplanned community located in the high-demand State Road 54 corridor in Pasco County. The community’s central location is just five minutes from the Suncoast Parkway, and also provides close proximity to U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and I-75. Its master plan incorporates retail, office, multifamily and a variety of single-family residential offerings.More information can be obtained by visiting Asturia’s model homes, registering at the community’s website,, or by calling (813) 227-4148.

DECK THE DINING TABLE Fill glass vases with seasonal items such as ornaments, holly, faux snow or pinecones. Add extra light and warmth to the table with a flameless LED pillar candle. Place tea lights in small vases filled with cranberries, holly and water for an inexpensive and festive way to decorate the table. DECORATE THE TREE Embellish your tree by adding red or burlap ribbon from the top of each side and adding a topper. Then, consider coordinating the color scheme of your tree with gifts, using those that were wrapped early as decor throughout your house. DECK THE FRONT DOOR Make a DIY wreath by gluing bows or pinning ornaments to a foam wreath. Complete the look with festive outdoor lighting. DESIGN A FESTIVE MANTLE Wrap a garland in mini string lights and hang leftover ornaments to continue the theme from your tree. Create handmade bows to place at each end of the mantle. If you dont have a mantle, you can create a fireplace-like space with a cluster of string lights or LED candles in a nook of your home. Then, remember to hang the stockings! CREATE A CLEANING GAME PLAN Create a day-by-day cleaning game plan, focusing on one area of your house at a time. This will save you stress and allow you more time to get organized. Be sure youre stocked up on all your holiday prep cleaning supplies, including sponges, microfiber cloths and wet mop refills. Remember, getting into the holiday spirit doesnt have to break the bank. Save time and money decorating your home, so you can spend more stress-free moments with friends and family. Story courtesy of StatePoint Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays H eres six easy ways to prepare for your holiday meals and parties without running up your water bill. 1.) Defrost frozen foods in the refrigerator or the microwave instead of running hot water over them. 2.) Rinse vegetables and fruits in a sink or pan filled with water instead of under running water. This water can then be reused to water houseplants. A running faucet can use up to 4 gallons per minute. 3.) When washing dishes by hand, fill one sink or basin with soapy water and fill the rinsing sink one-third to one-half full. Avoid letting the water run continuously in the rinsing sink. 4.) Select the proper size pans for cooking. Large pans require more cooking water than may be necessary. 5.) Scrape food scraps into the garbage can or a composting bin, rather than rinsing them into the sinks garbage disposal. A garbage disposal uses up to 4.5 gallons of water per minute. 6.) Run your dishwasher only when you have a full load. Dishwashers use between 7 and 12 gallons per load. Courtesy of Southwest Florida Water Management District.

It’s not until their showerheads become corroded with mineral build up, or their ice cubes look cloudy, do many families consider a water treatment and purification system for their home. Unfortunately, by the time they do, the damage often has already been done to home appliances, faucets and grout which have become pitted, scratched, stained and may even require replacement. The good news is that all of these symptoms of poor water quality can be resolved with a quality home water system that pays for itself in just a few years. Refined water also extends the life of a hot water heater because less sediment is deposited in the tank. Like many of her customers, Dana Spears, owner of Cornerstone Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical in Land O’ Lakes, also waited too long before installing a water treatment and purification system in her home. A wife and mother of five children, Dana and her husband, James, built a new home four years ago. “We didn't think to put in a water system them, and that was a huge mistake because today my beautiful, expensive kitchen and bathroom faucets are pitted and scratched, my grout is cracking and there is so much corrosion in my dishwasher that we need to replace it,” said Dana. Cornerstone’s Plumbing Department has always offered water treatment, but Dana found a real need to expand this area for her customers. “Not only did my family home need a water system, but many of our customers were also inquiring about what system was best for their home,” said Dana. Dana and her team researched dozens of manufacturers and systems, and selected Westinghouse because of its effectiveness, efficiency and 10-year guarantee. “Westinghouse also offered Cornerstone exclusivity, which means we are the only plumbing company in the area that can sell their exceptional water systems,” said Dana. The Westinghouse Progressive Revolution Series works 24 hours a day delivering clean, soft working water to the entire house. Its refined water makes clothes and linens softer and brighter, and kitchen and bathroom faucets and showerheads become free of water spots, soap scum and scaling that restricts water flow. For drinking water, the Westinghouse system delivers fresh, purified water on demand from a special faucet installed at the kitchen sink. Its technology removes nearly all of the contaminants in city water, and leaves nothing but pure, clean, fresh tasting water. “If you’re buying bottled water, you can stop. And if you’re relying on faucet or refrigerator filters, this gives your family a much higher level of purity,” said Dana. “Essentially, you get unlimited bottled water — just think how much money you will save because you will no longer need to buy bottled water!” As sediment builds up, it doesn’t take long for water coming from a faucet that is not treated first by a purification system to taste like minerals and even look a bit cloudy. Many families spend $20 or more on bottled water for their family a week, Dana explains. Cornerstone also installs water treatment and purification systems for homes on well water. Well water is tested for iron, bacteria and other elements, and the system custom designed to meets the specific needs of a family’s well. The Westinghouse system can be installed same day or next in most homes with city water, especially in newer homes that are pre-plumbed for a water treatment system. Homes on a well may take up to two weeks for the testing and installation to be completed Cornerstone’s licensed plumbers are trained by Westinghouse and are certified to install its systems. Every installation is different, and all are integrated with the home’s water system. All work is guaranteed and under warranty for a full year. Cornerstone was founded in 2006 as an air conditioning service company. In 2012, it expanded into plumbing services, and two years later added electrical services. Its phones are answered 24/7, and technicians are available around the clock, including weekends and holidays. Call (813) 949-4445 anytime, day or night.

The purification process removes nearly all of the contaminants in your city or well water and gives you a limitless supply of higher quality drinking water. Save money: Pure, crystal clear water from your faucet means you can stop buying bottled water for your home. No hard water spots and soap residue: Glassware comes straight from the dishwasher, crystal clear. The same goes for stemware and flatware. Soft skin after shaving and bathing: Rinses away all soap and cleaning products completely, leaving you with soft manageable skin and hair. Razorblades last longer and you can shave you closer. Water becomes a powerful solvent all by itself: Refined water will lift stains and clean surfaces, plus eliminate tough stains brought on by your old harsh water. Refined water also reduces the time it takes to clean your home, and also the need for harsh and sometimes toxic cleaners.

Details and a date for the grand opening will be announced later.The 7-acre lagoon at the center of Epperson is a mammoth swimming pool, with crystal blue, see-through waters. Eppersons lagoon will be the first in the nation. (Phelps is) big on promoting people being active in water sports, said Greg Singleton, president of Metro Development Group, which is developing Epperson. Metro is big on having people swimming and being active in our lagoon. Epperson residents can enjoy aquatic activities, including swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding and sailing small boats. There also will be Caribbean-style beaches and cabanas, a waterslide, an entertainment plaza, a yoga lawn and an area for special events. Singleton said the lagoon would have some limited guest opportunities, as well. But, he added, Its not designed to be a public water park. Instead, it will function more like a private golf course, Singleton said. Metro is purchasing water from Pasco County to fill the lagoon. Once it is filled, Metro officials estimate the lagoon will use 50 times less water than a park of the same size and 30 times less water than a golf course. Epperson will have about 2,000 homes when completed. Residents will participate in the first smart gigabit community in the nation, with UltraFi technology as a built-in feature of the community, indoors and outdoors. Epperson also will be the first residential community within the Connected City corridor. Pasco County commissioners approved the framework for Connected City in February. The approximately 7,800 acres in northeastern Pasco is designated as a stateapproved, 10-year pilot program designed to feature technology-based neighborhoods. However, full development of Connected City is anticipated to take about 50 years. When completed, the area will have about 37,000 homes and more than 12 million square feet of commercial space. Saint Leo University, Florida Hospital and Tampa General Hospital are partners in the development of a wellness district within Connected City, with plans to build hospitals, schools and research facilities. The Connected City boundaries are Interstate 75, State Road 52, and Curley and Overpass roads. Epperson is at the juncture of Curley and Overpass roads. Currently, about 200 homes have been built at Epperson, with another 200 lots available for construction. Singleton said homeowners occupy about 70 houses. Metro also is developing Mirada, a master-planned community north of Epperson. It also will have a Crystal Lagoon. Mirada is underway, Singleton said. Were moving dirt and developing lots. Other lagoons are expected to open at developments in southern Hillsborough County and in Fort Myers. Edwina Kraemer/LutzI am so blessed with family and a husband that survived a stroke and club members (GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club) and church (First United Methodist Church of Lutz), said Edwina Kraemer, of Lutz. For Thanksgiving, she said, We are having an organic turkey. And, my son and daughter-in-law and my beautiful granddaughter and some friends of ours are all coming over, and were going to try to eat healthy. Pat Wright/Dade CityPat Wright, the circulation supervisor at Hugh Embry Branch Library in Dade City, said: Im thankful for the whole staff that I work with here at Hugh Embry. The Webster woman said shes also grateful for family and friends, and planned to be making a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, with all of the trimmings, for her family. Matt Badillo/Wesley ChapelMatt Badillo, of Wesley Chapel, is thankful for a new employment opportunity. I just got offered a job at the VA. It was a bit of a long process, but its finally rolling through. Its really good. Ill be a nursing assistant there. But, hes also grateful to be celebrating the holiday with his family. I just recently came back from living in Australia for three years. I came back in April, he said, noting hes looking forward to turkey and cranberry sauce, and for another favorite, too. My grandma makes this corn casserole that Ive been waiting for, for awhile. Sister Jean Abbott/Dade CitySister Jean Abbott, who oversees the Daystar Hope Center Thrift Shop in Dade City, said I am thankful for the generosity of the people who donate their time and their money and their items, or their food and household stuff to us. It keeps our doors open. It keeps us able to assist people who are needy, and Im especially thankful for the volunteers who do all of the work of processing that stuff that comes in, and making sure its in useful shape to go to the people who need it, she said. She plans to spend Thanksgiving at Saint Anthony Parish Hall, helping to serve others and enjoying her holiday meal. It will be her second Thanksgiving dinner, which makes it hard to follow her primary doctors advice to watch her carbohydrates, she said. Suzanne Jasinski/Land O LakesSuzanne Jasinski, of Land O Lakes, is grateful to be able to celebrate another Thanksgiving with her family. A couple of years ago, I was shivering, I thought I was cold. I kept putting blanket after blanket after blanket. My son said, No, youre going to the hospital, she recalled. She didnt want to go, but she went. It turned out to be septic. My kidneys were shutting down. I was in a coma for 3 weeks, she said. She was on dialysis, too. They took me off dialysis because my kidneys started working, she said. Her doctor called her his little miracle. Jasinski lives with her son, James, and her daughter-in-law, Michelle, and they expect about 20 people to celebrate Thanksgiving with them. Theyll be enjoying a feast, including turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, yams the whole nine yards, Jasinski said. And, that includes dressing. Her oyster dressing is the best, said Kimberly Lucas, Jasinskis daughter, who was with her and Jasinskis granddaughter, Ashley Lucas, at The Shops at Wiregrass.

16A November 22, 2017 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comThe 2017 Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) Swimming & Diving Championships wrapped up its meets across all four classes on Nov. 11. Among local schools, Land O’ Lakes and Sunlake displayed the strongest showings at the state event, held at Sailfish Splash Water Park in Stuart. The Sunlake High School girls team placed fourth (out of 48 schools) in the Class 3A meet, marking the highest finish of any team in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area. The showing yielded six state medals and six school records. Seahawks sophomore Chloe Grimme exhibited perhaps the most impressive performance, placing first in the 50 free (23.11) and second in the 100 free (51.18), earning All-American honors. Grimme also teamed with Tori Eurell, Elise Ballash and Hanna Barton win the 200 free relay (1:36.88). She, too, teamed with Eurell, Barton and Audrey Ballash to finish third in the 200 medley relay (1:48.13). Other Seahawks highlights included Elise Ballash’s seventh-place finish in the 100 breast (1:06.10) and Audrey Ballash’s 11th-place finish in the 200 individual medley (2:09.91). On the Sunlake boys side, sophomore Dominic Ortanez placed fourth in the 50 free (21.63), and sophomore Jay Jay Fonnotto placed 19th in the 100 fly. His time of 53:43 is a school record. Land O’ Lakes High School, meanwhile, thrived in the Class 2A swim meet. The girls squad finished fifth (out of 47 teams), while the boys placed 10th (out of 39 teams). Two-time defending state champion Jabari Ramsey earned his third straight gold medal in in the 100 breaststroke, with a time of 56:11. The Land O’ Lakes senior became the first boy swimmer from Pasco County, and just the fifth from the area, to win three straight titles in the same event. He tied former Mitchell standout Devin McCaffrey for the most career individual titles by a North Suncoast swimmer with three. The hardware didn’t end there for Ramsey. He teamed with Patryk Pilkowski, Zachary Davis and Zuri Ramsey to win the 200 medley relay in 1:35.97, smashing last year’s school record of 1:39.09 — becoming the first ever Pasco County relay team to win gold at the Class 2A state championships. Along with Jabari Ramsey, Pilkowski reached the podium as an individual with his third-place finish in the 100 backstroke. His mark of 51:75 broke the previous school record by a full three seconds. On the girls side, junior Taylor Ward earned a pair of second-place finishes in the 200 free (1:50.27) and the 500 free (4:56.57). Ward also teamed with Romina McCloskey, Margarita Czupryn and Ashley Schrader for third in the 200-yard free relay (1:39.71) and fourth in the 400 free relay (3:38.54) — both school records. Another school record was set by McCloskey in the 100 free (53:07). The individual time was good enough for an eighth-place finish at states. The FHSAA championships wrapped up an otherwise notable season for the Gators, historically one of the county’s top high school swim programs. Both boys and girls squads won district and Sunshine Athletic Conference titles, and finished runner-up at regionals. The conference titles marked the 17th straight for the boys team and ninth straight for the girls. Other schools in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area with teams or individuals represented in the state meet were: Academy at the Lakes, Freedom, Steinbrenner and Wesley Chapel high schools.

The girls squad finished fifth (out of 47 teams), while the boys placed 10th (out of 39 teams).Academy at the Lakes relishes breakout seasonBy Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comAcademy at the Lakes football head coach Shawn Brown anticipated a team turnaround before the season. He was right. After three consecutive losing seasons in the eight-man football ranks, the Wildcats are in the midst of one of its best in program history, with a state title in reach. The team currently stands at 9-1, including a 7-0 mark in Florida Christian Region 2 — worthy enough for a No. 2 ranking in the state among all eight-man schools. And, they’re just a win away from reaching the FCAPPS (Florida Christian Association of Private and Parochial Schools) championship game. Most recently, the Wildcats downed Canterbury 54 to 6 in the state quarterfinals on Nov 17. The playoff blowout isn’t a shock. The Wildcats have scored an average of 51 points per game this season while allowing just 15.2 points per game. That season-long dominance has allowed Brown and his coaching staff to build depth among its 24 active players — utilizing backups in place of starters during secondhalves of several games. “It’s been really neat to watch the whole dynamics of a true team, overall,” said Brown, who is in his fourth season as head coach. “Our starters giving up a lot of playing time for our backups to get in, and our backups this year have gotten a lot of playing time. “Most teams don’t beat people like we have, where the backups get a lot of playing time.” The team’s next game is Dec. 1 against Orlando’s Eastland Christian (10-1) — the only team to defeat the Wildcats this season, back on Sept. 7. The Wildcats lost that matchup 50-35, despite entering halftime with a 28-14 lead. Brown explained dehydration and cramping issues among several starters stymied the team in the second half. “We probably needed to be humbled,” Brown said, of the September loss. “We, as coaches, are reminding them that we’ve been on that losing side for so long, so we tell them to, ‘Respect the game.’” Academy at the Lakes went 2-8 in 2016, after finishing 4-7 and 3-5 the prior two seasons. Much of the past struggle can be credited to youth and inexperience. This year’s team, however, is dotted with upperclassman and skill players. Brown expected improvements this season, though not to this extent. “Has it been a surprise to me to how we played? Absolutely. But, I can’t say we were going to come here and mop people like we have,” he said. “At some point we were going to have a breakout season. It just happened to be this season,” he said. Brown credits the team’s summer offseason program, which included weightlifting sessions three days a week, participating in Division I college camps, and competing in various seven-on-seven tournaments, sometimes facing 11-man schools from Classes 7A and 8A. The work, Brown said, taught Wildcats “to be competitive.” Pure talent and execution on offense is another key reason for the team’s historic run, added offensive coordinator Landon Smith. Freshman quarterback Jalen Brown has displayed composure and maturity, throwing 11 touchdowns and just one interception. Seniors Daniel Gonzalez (889 rushing yards, 19 touchdowns) and Isaiah Smith (17 receptions, 495 yards, 13 touchdowns) have been explosive playmakers, as has junior Jamaal Johnson (642 scrimmage yards, eight touchdowns). “From one game to the next, we probably run about seven plays, and they just execute those plays very well. These kids are getting chunks of yards with the same play over and over,” Landon Smith explained. “A lot of these kids have been here since eighth-graders, so at this point, they’ve had a number of years to learn this system. I like to think it’s the play calling, but I think it’s more of the kids and their talent and execution that’s making us, offensively, as good as we are,” he said. The team’s defense likewise has flashed, posting a combined 59 sacks and 90 tackles for loss, 18 forced fumbles, and 13 interceptions — which includes 10 picks by freshman cornerback Jordan Oladokun, the younger brother of University of South Florida quarterback Chris Oladokun. “I think what’s really leading to our success this year is we’re having fun,” said Jalen Brown, the son of head coach Shawn Brown. “We’re winning, and starting new traditions and everything. The atmosphere is totally different this year than it was last year. We’ve got handshake celebrations and everything. Our defense cheers for our offense, and our offense cheers for defense.” Seniors, too, are cherishing the 2017 campaign and what remains. “It’s been an honor. It’s been an awesome ride,” Daniel Gonzalez said. “I wouldn’t want to end my senior year any other way. This is a heck of a ride. I’m having a lot of fun; all these guys are so into it, and everyone wants to win a state championship this year.” Isaiah Smith defined this season as “awesome and inspiring.” “Last year it was like having training wheels, and we were just getting our feet wet, to be honest. Now, this year, it’s kind of showing what we can do now,” Smith said. “I think it’s just a statement of how far we can go to reach the top.” COURTESY OF ACADEMY AT THE LAKES Academy at the Lakes’ offense is averaging a staggering 51 points per game this season, aiding the team during its eight-game winning streak.

The school, at 8008 N. Mobley Road in Odessa, used a Splash! grant from the Southwest Florida Water Management District to cover the costs of creating the hydroponics garden. The grant also includes several other elements relating to water conservation. Teachers Tina Miller and Bonnie Cothern said that Urban Roots, of 11780 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa, have also helped in the program by demonstrating how to put together the plant towers and letting students help, as well as allowing them to plant vegetables and herbs. Students in Cotherns gifted education classes are working with Millers fifthgraders to help educate the entire school about hydroponics and water conservation. Theyll be reporting conservation tips monthly on the schools morning show, and will be making posters to raise awareness to the rest of the school and members of the community about the importance of water conservation. Lessons also will include the importance of choosing Florida-friendly garden plants that are adapted to the states climate to prevent unnecessary water use. On a recent day, Cothern and Miller were out in the garden with some of their students. The children talked about some advantages of hydroponics gardening. Third-grader Lyla Cullimore explained how the plant tower system works. The reservoir is right here, she said. When you turn it on, the water goes through a pipe and it goes up, then the water goes down and it makes it so the plants get water.The pump runs twice a day, for 15 minutes each time, the teachers said, via email, in a more detailed explanation of hydroponics.The water drips from the top plant container, through the plant medium, which is composed of shredded coconut shell and perlite. Then, water in that planter drips to the one below, the teachers said. Fifth-grader Ryan Dumont noted the water can drip down through the angles of the planters, then, once it drops down, theres holes in the planters and it drips down into the reservoir, and we can reuse it. The drip system, combined with a porous medium, conserves water and provides oxygenation to the root system of the plants. The water in the reservoir lasts 10 days to 14 days, the teachers said. The system is efficient because no water is wasted through runoff and evaporation. Miller asked students, what does organic mean? Fifth-grader Ethan Bezaury responded: Organic means that its not manmade.Miller then talked about the liquid fertilizer that provides nutrients to the plants. By growing the plants in pots, arranged on a tower, more plants can be grown in a smaller area, she said. How many plants are in that little bit of a space? Miller asked. Theres about 20, answered third-grader Evan Rottenberger. Thats correct, Miller said, adding that students have been able to integrate math and science into what they are learning about hydroponics. Students have been taking measurements of the plants and charting their observations in notebooks. When you guys were doing your data recording yesterday, what did you find about the different plants that you had taken your baseline data on? Miller asked. Fifth-grader Sophia Wyant responded: They were growing more and more each time. The teacher explained: Weve been doing some long-term investigations because one of the claims of hydroponics is that the yield is greater. Its too early to tell if that is true, but fifthgrader Angela Rosario has noticed that a plant shes been observing has achieved noticeable growth. The first time they observed the garden was on Oct. 27. It was 10 centimeters, my longest leaf. I had seven leaves. The smallest leaf was 3 cm, and the height was 17 cm. After 10 days, my height was 21 cm, I had eight leaves. My smallest was 6; the longest was 11, Rosario said. She said hydroponics helps conserve water and reduces problems from weeds. Cotherns students began their observations a week after Millers students. She said she gave her students the freedom to choose how they wanted to observe their plant. I told them they could take whatever data they wanted to. They could measure the whole plant. They could measure the biggest leaf, the smallest leaf, whatever they decided to do, she said.The teachers are pleased that the children are learning about water conservation and are excited about the students sharing what they have learned with the entire school community, as well as with their families at home. Garden yields lessons on math, science, conservation B.C. MANION

A friend – who later became her husband – urged the New Port Richey native to move from her home base in Pasco County to Alaska. “Alaska is the place you need to be,” he told her. At the time, there weren’t many jobs available at home, so she took his advice. She wound up loving it. “I like the outdoors and love animals,” Crenshaw said. She also found plenty of opportunities to pursue her career passion – floral design. Now, 35 years later, she is living in Spring Hill. And, at age 58, she thought she was on a path to retirement, and living close to her children. But, in October, she opened The Lakes Floral and Gifts Inc., at 6755 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., in Wisteria Plaza. After years of working for other shop owners, Crenshaw became a first-time business owner. So much for retirement. “I got bored,” she explained. Her shop offers custom-designed floral arrangements for all occasions. She also offers an assortment of gifts and selected artwork. There are fresh flowers, silk flowers, live plants, balloons, stuffed animals, soaps, and handcrafted cards, bottles and beadwork. One gift item is a graphite pencil and a “Wishing Stone,” created by sculptor Kelly Barker. Artwork can be painted on the stone’s surface in water. As the water evaporates, the art disappears and the stone is ready for another artistic creation. She also features works by local artists. She plans to display artists’ works on a rotating basis — featuring one artist’s work for about two months and then bringing in new works from another artist. Her own paintings are on display, too. She began painting when she was young, noting that her mother painted, so she grew up with it. Just as Alaska didn’t become her permanent address, her career choice didn’t follow the direction she expected it to take, either. She attended what was then known as Pasco-Hernando Community College, majoring in art, with a minor in business. Across the hallway, she noticed an adult education class on the basics of floral design. She decided to give that a try, and was hooked. “It gets into your blood,” Crenshaw said. “You can’t get away from it.” Though moving to Alaska might seem a leap to some people, Crenshaw said Anchorage, the state’s largest city, worked well for her. “It has a symphony orchestra that is fabulous, and opera,” she said. “And, 10 minutes outside town, you’re in the wilderness with moose and bears.” In Florida, people move from air-conditioned buildings to air-conditioned cars. In Alaska, it’s from heated buildings to heated cars, Crenshaw said. Not a big adjustment, she said. “It was great.” She painted and was an avid photographer. She worked as a florist. At one time, she was florist at a base exchange at Elmendorf Air Base in Anchorage. Crenshaw also worked in management for the supermarket company, Safeway, which is now owned by Albertson’s. Still, floral design is her first love. She took classes in floral design in California from Phil Rulloda, a designer who is nationally known. When she made the decision to open her Land O’ Lakes shop, she researched and observed. “We sat in parking lots and scoped areas out,” she said. Her son suggested she check out Land O’ Lakes as a place where new development was happening. “I remembered Land O’ Lakes as the old Land O’ Lakes,” she said. But, new subdivisions are coming, including one on former Lester Dairy farmland. More retail is coming, too. Crenshaw saw “a nice, busy place,” and settled on Wisteria Plaza, where Capital Tacos restaurant is located.
