Voters could decide on four bond issues in 2018By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comPasco County voters could be asked to support as many as four bond referendums in November to pay for upgrades to public safety, fire rescue, parks and libraries. County officials presented information on the bonds at a Feb. 13 workshop in New Port Richey. At a previous workshop, Pasco County commissioners had considered a single referendum for about $185 million to pay for public safety and fire rescue needs. That included a 1,000-bed expansion at the county’s jail in Land O’ Lakes, four new fire stations, and upgrades and expansions at five other fire stations. There also was discussion on including parks and libraries in the single bond, or possibly putting those categories into a separate bond. This is the county’s current breakdown on individual bond issues: $128 million for public safety $57 million for fire rescue $19 million for parks and recreation $9 million for libraries Pasco County commissioners had differing opinions on whether to pursue separate bond issues. From a legal standpoint, Pasco County Attorney Jeffrey Steinsnyder said the bonds should not be “lumped” together. “Every single item should be on there,” said Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano. “Let the people pick.” Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore said he worried about overloading voters with too many issues. “On one ballot, that is going to be very, very full,” he said. “That’s a lot of information — a lot going on.” But, he later said, he could go along with four bonds. “If you guys want to put it on the ballot, put it on the ballot,” he said.Jon’s Gourmet Nutrition dishes healthy mealsBy Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comLife and retirement don’t always work out as expected. John Richardson packed his belongings and left behind more than 20 years as a firefighter in New Rochelle, New York, and headed for the warm paradise of Florida “I thought I was going to come down here and go to the beach every day,” he said. Richardson pictured himself in a convertible, top down, tooling off to the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico. His beach dreams are gone now, but his cooking career is taking off. In November, Richardson opened Jon’s Gourmet Nutrition in a small plaza, at 6745 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. The restaurant’s name is no misspelling. It draws attention in a way no traditional name spelling would do. “Jon is more gourmet,” Richardson elaborated. “It’s worked out good.” His menu features healthy, fresh recipes, including Buffalo chicken spread, jerk smoked salmon spread, honey jerk smoked turkey spread, guacamole, and pasta. He recently added wraps. Almost all items are “jerk smoked,” a combination that Richardson said makes his recipes unique. Other restaurants offer jerk or smoked meals, but not both together, he said. “It’s a little longer process to do it, but it’s worth it,” Richardson said. Customers can dine in or order meals, with free delivery. Richardson also does catering. Cooking wasn’t totally off Richardson’s radar as a firefighter. But, he hadn’t considered owning a restaurant. He picked up culinary skills at the New Rochelle fire station. Mealtime was a group activity. Richardson did much of the prep work. He chopped carrots, celery, onions and other vegetables. Along the way, he also picked up a few recipes. “I watched the (other) guys and that’s how I learned to cook,” he said. For years, his kitchen activity stayed strictly inside his home, or at the fire station. He would try recipes on his daughter and ask for her opinions. When Richardson left New Rochelle, he relocated to New Tampa, and eventually took a job as medical lab technician at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital. It was a similar job to one he had in New York. Richardson said it was typical for firefighters to have a second job on their days off. He worked at the veteran’s hospital for two years. All the while, he was developing his signature recipes for jerk smoked spreads. For his going away party, Richardson brought a salad, with jerk turkey breast, that was a big crowd pleaser. Friends encouraged him to go into business. Next, he signed up with the Entrepreneurs Collaborative Center in Hillsborough County.

RANDY UNDERHILL INSIDE, PAGE 1B B By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comIt’s still early in 2018, but Pasco County is taking the first steps toward planning its fiscal year budget for 2019. Pasco County officials are looking to hold the line on expenses, even as property values are expected to increase between 7 percent and 8 percent. Essentially, they want a flat balanced budget that has no increase in the millage rate. The Pasco County Commission received an update on anticipated revenues and expenses at a Feb. 13 workshop in New Port Richey. The county is taking a conservative approach to the 2019 budget because of the potential for a referendum on the November ballot that could cost the county between $10 million and $12 million. The fire rescue fund also could lose as much as $3 million. The outcome on the referendum will be crucial. Voters will have the chance to approve a $25,000 increase in the homestead exemption. County officials expect the referendum to pass. Revenue loss will be felt beginning in 2020. Other revenue sources will grow, including tourism taxes and stormwater fees. Both of those were boosted by the Pasco County Commission in 2017. County officials say increasing population means more services are needed for residents, including parks and libraries, roads and stormwater. Those costs cut into the revenue increases. Pasco County Administrator Dan Biles believes that Pasco will be able to offset the revenue shrinkage better than most Florida counties.Pasco crafting conservative 2019 budgetSee BUDGET, page11A Pasco County Administrator Dan Biles LAKERLUT ZNEW S.CO MThe LAKER WESLEY CHAPEL/NEW TAMPA EDITION The LAKERFreeF E B R U A R Y 3 2 0 1 6 Auto Ac cident?

ElmoreSpecial to The Laker/Lutz NewsIt’s time to start your vegetables for spring planting. January and February are great months to start gardening vegetables. With the exception of sweet potatoes and okra, most of our vegetables grow best during spring and fall. While spring hasn’t sprung just yet, now is a great time to set out veggies like collard and mustard greens, cabbage, and kale. Plants in this family are hardy and tolerant of the cold, while some of the other popular veggies are at risk of freezing. You can get a jump-start on growing more cold-sensitive vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers, by germinating them from seed and keeping them indoors or protected outside. It’s simple to do. Using a grow/germination tray with cells, egg cartons, or even milk jugs with the top removed, fill the container threequarters of the way full with a seed starting potting soil, which you can pick up at any garden center or big box store. Seed your tray or container according to the seed packet instructions, which usually includes adding a small amount of soil over the top of the seeds, and planting at a particular depth and spacing between seeds. Be careful not to overseed to the point that the roots of seedlings grow together, making it difficult to remove them for transplanting. You risk damaging sensitive young roots, if you have to separate roots. If you find there are too many seedlings growing close together, simply thin them out early on. Sometimes you can successfully separate and move crowded seedlings by carefully teasing the roots apart and replanting. It takes patience and a bit of luck, though. Fertilizer isn’t necessary at this stage, since there are no roots present to uptake the nutrients. Wait to fertilize until you have actual seedlings with a root system. Check by carefully tugging on the seedling to check for rooting. Keep seedlings watered to the point the soil is moist, but not wet to the touch. And, place them outside in a sunny spot, but cover or take them indoors if the temperature is expected to drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to remove covers as soon as the sun begins to shine on your trays, or you risk cooking your plants. Alternatively, you can keep the seedlings in a westward facing window with plenty of light. After a few days or weeks, depending on the species, you’ll have tiny seedlings that you simply need to keep moist. At the end of February or in early March, you’ll need only remove the seedlings from their tray and set them out in your garden or your favorite decorative pot. Handle the seedlings carefully and don’t plant them any deeper than they already are in their germination tray. Fertilize them, according to product directions, and keep the soil moist. Soon, you’ll have a plentiful harvest, and a month earlier than everyone else. The Joneses will be so jealous. Dr. Whitney C. Elmore is the UF/IFAS Pasco County Extension director and an Urban Horticulture Agent III. COURTESY OF EDEN SANTIAGO-GOMEZ, OF THE PASCO COUNTY EXTENSION OFFICEIts spring gardening time. Unlike most places, Florida has two vegetable gardening seasons: Spring and Fall. Be careful not to overseed to the point that the roots of seedlings grow together.

Alan Stern and his wife, Nayda, saw the need to start their own conservative congregation that accepted families with young children. So, in December, they formed the Family Friendly Temple of Pasco County at their Land O Lakes home. We wanted something middle-ofthe-road for Jewish people in Pasco County to be able to go and meet people who are Jewish, to celebrate our heritage and just enjoy being with one another, Stern said. The object is to have fun, to meet Jews, build relationships, and to educate children and grandchildren, he added. Stern himself grew up in a Reform Jewish household, while his wife was raised more Conservative/Orthodox. They lived in Buffalo, New York, for more than 30 years, until moving to Florida in 2004. When they werent able to find a synagogue in the Tampa area that offered what they were seeking, the Sterns decided to offer services of their own.It also became a matter of convenience to be able to stay in the area, compared to trekking to conservative shuls in south Tampa.Conservative Judaism, which is particularly prevalent in North America, seeks to preserve Jewish tradition and ritual, but has a more flexible approach to the interpretation of the law than Orthodox Judaism. Family Friendly Temple has since been incorporated and will be renamed Congregation Beth Chavraim (House of Friends) once it becomes a 501c3 nonprofit. Monthly Sabbath services have drawn about 20 people, said Stern, who stresses the group welcomes people of all ages, especially children. Its always been about kids, as far as Im concerned. Kids are the future of our religion, Stern said. The services typically run 30 minutes. A Kosher meal is served after, and usually includes homemade Challah and Kosher wine. In addition to Sabbaths, Stern said services are planned this year for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, as well as Hanukkah. Meanwhile, a prayer book is being created to include Hebrew, its transliteration, and English. Stern noted the group might track down an additional location for the Jewish High Holiday services, because I think were going to have quite a few people. The next service will be Feb. 23. All community members are invited. For more information, email New Day Church, a new church in Odessa, is planning its official launch date for Feb. 25, according to a church news release. The new worship center is located at 1850 Crossings Blvd., Suite D, in Odessa. The church is offering two Sunday services, which begin at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Church officials describe New Day as a non-denominational church that welcomes all members in a family-friendly, casual and non-judgmental manner. In the news release, Pastor Justin Setzer issues this invitation: Come as you are. The church also offers a Childrens Ministry for infants through upper elementary children. It will have modern music, a service team, and small groups for those interested in learning more about spirituality, relationships, finances and other topics.

A Community Needs Assessment was completed by Pascos health department in 2017, determining four areas of priority in the county, one of which was overall health and well-being. This prompted the launch of the coalition, Get Healthy Pasco! Many organizations that got involved focused on the health and well-being of Pasco County residents through physical activity and healthy nutrition choices, as well as systems and environmental changes. Health experts say that being active can assist with reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes. It also can strengthen bones, muscles and joints, and improve mental health, relieve stress and improve sleep, over time. An initiative was rolled out this month called Move More! Pasco County has more than 50 outdoor parks available to the public, and the program aims to increase awareness of these resources, so residents can take advantage of them and become more active. Residents can join Move More! online. The goal is to visit at least five parks in the county before April 30, and become eligible for a prize.

But, the county will proceed with caution. We dont want to take on any new expenditures that we cant sustain the next year, said Bob Goehrig, the countys budget director. Thats sort of our marching order. Initial county projections for property taxes estimate about $13 million in new revenues. But, about $4.1 million will be paid out to community development areas that receive set-aside tax dollars to support various projects. The remaining $9.2 million will be split evenly between the Pasco County Sheriffs Office and the countys other departments and offices, with each receiving about $4.6 million. Other factors impacting the 2019 budget include a slower rate of increase in the halfcent sales tax revenues and increased costs for pension contributions, health care, workers compensation, and property/casualty insurance. The county also anticipates paying $3 million to $6 million annually for temporary housing for jail inmates on site at the detention center in Land O Lakes, or at jails in other counties. Plans are underway to build a 1,000-bed expansion at the overcrowded facility. Potential funding for that project would come from a bond issue, not general revenues. The bond issue requires voter approval. The countys tourism tax revenues are increasing, as a result of an increased tourism tax, from 2 percent up to 4 percent last year, and a general increase in tourism. Six new hotels are either open or under construction. The increased tourism tax is expected to boost revenues from slightly more than $1 million last year to about $3.3 million by 2019. Another sign of Pascos growing population and improving economy is the increase in building permits.In 2016, the county received a little more than $6 million in fees. That increased to about $8.5 million in 2017, and is expected to be more than $9 million in 2019.But, Goehrig said, The fees are designed to recover expenses. This isnt money were putting into the bank. start-up businesses with resources, training and mentoring. Richardsons initially sold his products at area salons and gymnasiums. He also began selling HerbaLife products, which are available for purchase at his restaurant. By focusing on nutritious foods, he dropped about 30 pounds. Richardson also caters and delivers daily meals. Last year he decided it was time for the next step of opening a brick-and-mortar, Jons Gourmet Nutrition. He found a former computer store, did some renovations, and opened in November. He makes meals daily at a professional kitchen, and brings them to his restaurant. His days are split between the restaurant and catering. He continues to offer free meal deliveries. In the future, he aims to have a large enough location to accommodate both a kitchen and restaurant seating. He wants to sell his spreads, and other menu items, at area grocery stores, such as Whole Foods and Publix. He marvels at how his life took a turn, setting him off in a new direction. Its God, but its also a whole bunch of things that fell into place, Richardson said. Its overwhelming. Its a humbling experience. For information, call (813) 495-2130, or visit The detention center project, at $128 million, would pay for a 1,000-bed expansion. County officials said a judicial administrative order mandates that the Pasco County Sheriffs Office relieve overcrowding when the inmate population reaches a daily average of 1,900. The facility was built to house 1,432 inmates but, as of January, held more than 1,800 on an average day. By 2020, the inmate population is projected to be at nearly 2,400 a day. The cost per household is estimated at $13.87 annually. Fire rescue is seeking $57 million for four new stations, as well as renovations at five existing stations and at the fire training center. In addition, the bond would pay for trucks for the new stations. The cost per household would be about $8.60 annually. The $9 million for the libraries would be used to modernize and upgrade a library system built in the 1980s. The cost per household would be $1.71 a year. The $19 million for parks and recreation would pay for deferred maintenance projects. The cost per household would be $3.71 a year. I think people would vote for $1.71 and $3.71, said Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, referring to the cost per household for the libraries and parks bond issues.Currently, the county spends $1.5 million annually on deferred maintenance needs.At that spending rate, county officials said it could take more than 15 years to catch up. Using bond proceeds, the backlog could be completed in five years or six years, they said. One critical recreation issue for the county is a shortage of ball fields. Currently, sports leagues must compete for playing time, said Keith Wiley, the countys director of parks, recreation and natural resources. As growth continues and as children want to play, the reality is we dont have enough fields to put them on, he said.

His only winning season was in 2013, when the team went 8-3.Walker, was among 40 applicants for the position. The Pennsylvania native was selected from a field of 11 applicants interviewed for the job, according to Land O’ Lakes High School athletic director Michael Frump. At 33, Walker is relatively young. But, he doesn’t lack experience. He’s coached at the postsecondary level for about a decade. His stops include Division II Pace University in New York, where he served as offensive coordinator/quarterback coach; Bridgton Academy in Maine, as head coach; Division III Kenyon College in Ohio, as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach; Division I FCS Lafayette College, coaching linebackers, tight ends and special teams; and Randolph-Macon College in Virginia, as defensive line coach. Several of those roles required rebuilding and transforming losing programs into stable ones, Walker said. He looks to do the same at Land O’ Lakes. “I coached at Kenyon College, where we hadn’t won a game in four years. Pace University, the same sort of thing. So, I’ve always been a part of these turnaround jobs. I’ve really kind of learned what works, what doesn’t work,” Walker said in a recent interview wit The Laker/Lutz News. Walker’s playing career also is notable. Groomed as a tight end, he earned four varsity letters at Lafayette from 2002 to 2005 and was a Patriot League AllConference selection in 2005. He later played professionally for two years in NFL Italy as a player/coach and the European Federation of American Football in Sweden. A knee injury ended his playing career and routed him to coaching. “Football’s my passion,” Walker said. For the past year, Walker has served as director of football operations/quarterback coach at Tampa-based Applied Science and Performance Institute (ASPI), which provides advanced training to elite athletes and pro football hopefuls. He now is overseeing logistics for nearly 50 football players, as they gear up for the NFL Combine. At APSI, he’s gotten to work alongside former Tampa Bay Buccaneers like Yo Murphy, Reidel Anthony, Booger McFarland, Todd Washington and others. “Being around these former NFL players, seeing how they relate to the guys, seeing as how they coach on the field during position drills and different things — it’s really continued to help me grow, not only in the football side of things, but also in life,” Walker said. While he balances his duties at APSI, Walker has been familiarizing himself with the Gators program. He’s met with current and prospective players and assistant coaches, and has observed offseason workouts and weightlifting sessions. He’s also spent time watching film of the 2017 season, evaluating returning players and their skillsets, while scouting team opponents. He’s also in the process of filling out the rest of his coaching staff. “One thing that caught my eye about Land O’ Lakes was the tradition,” Walker said. “Obviously, there’s some things to be done, but there’s some tools in place,” he added. Walker becomes Land O’ Lakes’ fifth head football coach since the program started in 1975. In addition to Wachtel, previous head coaches were Matt Kitchie, John Benedetto and Dan Sikes. For many years, Land O’ Lakes had one of the top football programs in Pasco County, earning a string of 14 straight playoff appearances from 1997 to 2009 under coaches Benedetto and Kitchie. However, the recent success of other programs in the county — as well as an ever-challenging district — have made winning consistently a tall task. Despite taking over a Gators program in the midst of four straight losing seasons— and a 4-5 mark in 2017— Walker is optimistic about the future. Said Walker, “I don’t necessarily think there’s an overhaul that needs to be done or a complete cultural change because I do think there’s a foundation there that you currently don’t see at a lot of places when people talk about, ‘Well, there hasn’t been success in the past.’ “I think Coach Wachtel laid a pretty sturdy foundation with that, and now it’s just to try and take it to the next level, and obviously get guys to buy into what my philosophy is and what our foundation’s going to be, and just learn to compete and to grow,” Walker said. Part of that starts with encouraging more Land O’ Lakes athletes — such as the school’s basketball players — to join the football team. “There are definitely athletes in the school right now I think can benefit not only the football program, but could benefit them as well,” Walker said, adding he went to see a Gators varsity basketball game within the first few weeks of being hired. The new coach is mum on the types of schemes he plans to implement on offense and defense, but described it as “something that I’ve been successful with, and something I think the kids will enjoy as well.” He added: “At the end of the day, it’s about the kids and bringing back some excitement in the Land O’ Lakes football program. We’re going to be, I think, fun to watch on Friday evenings.” Playbooks aside, the Gators should have budding talent to work with — on both sides of the ball — in 2018. Leading rusher Kyle Leivas, who tallied 1,050 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2017, is expected to return for his senior season, teaming up with a promising quarterback, Ethan Forrester, who will be a junior this season. On defense, the Gators are expected to return its top three tacklers in linebackers Myron Bloom (76 tackles, two sacks) and Clayton Hendriksen (75 tackles, 1.5 sacks), and safety Nate Howard (66 tackles, one interception). Meanwhile, Walker’s experiences — especially as a college coach — may yield additional recruiting and scholarship opportunities for some of those Land O’ Lakes players. “I do think one thing that is beneficial that I do bring to the high school level is the understanding of recruiting,” the new Gators coach said. Those things include such things as “how to market yourself to a college coach” and “how to market yourself to an admissions office academically,” he said.There are also other things that need to be addressed, including community service and “growing yourself as a young man to put yourself in the right position,” Walker said.NOTE: Spring practices begin in Florida on April 23; the first allowable day of contact practices is April 28.

As You Sow is a nonprofit that promotes environmental and social corporate responsibility through advocacy, coalition building and innovative legal strategies. Dunkin Brands previously announced plans to begin using a polypropylene plastic cup. Paper cups will be used instead. The decision will remove nearly one billion foam cups from the waste stream annually, the release states. As You Sow also is encouraging Dunkin Brands to go further, and commit to paper cups with recycled fiber content. Other restaurants also are phasing out foam products. McDonalds goal is to remove all foam from its global markets by the end of 2018. Starbucks has used 10 percent recycled fiber in its cups for many years.ECONOMIC BRIEFINGThe North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce has scheduled its monthly economic briefing for Feb. 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Hunters Green Country Club, 18101 Longwater Run Drive in Tampa.

The 42-mile trail winds through Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando counties. The largest segment of nearly 22 miles is in Pasco. The closure includes trail access south of State Road 52, and north of State Road 54. The project is one of Pasco Countys Parks, Recreation, and Natural Resources scheduled maintenance plans to improve the multi-use Suncoast Trail. The resurfacing will smooth out uneven areas and address areas needing repair. The aim is to make it safer for walkers and bikers to pass each other. Walking, biking and inline skating are allowed. The trail is wheelchair accessible. The trail is being closed because Pasco County officials said it would unsafe to use while repairs are being made. The trail is part of Floridas Greenways & Trails system, and opened in 2001. It parallels the Suncoast Parkway, and goes past the Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Preserve. The end points are the Upper Tampa Bay Trail at West Lutz-Lake Fern Road in Keystone, in Hillsborough County, and U.S. 98 at West Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Brooksville, in Hernando.
