TheLAKER FREE TheLAKER EAST PASCO EDITION OCTOBER 16, 2013By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Every year, on the third Saturday of October, thousands head to San Antonio Park to enjoy wide-ranging activities and foods at the annual Rattlesnake and Music Festival. The event almost didn’t happen this year, though. Previous event organizers had decided not to have the annual festival. So a halfdozen Rotary clubs from East Pasco County stepped up to take on the event, said David West, a festival board member. While this festival marks the 47th year that people have gathered to experience the festivities, this year’s lineup has a few changes. For one thing, music will play a larger role — hence the festival’s new name. For another, there will be a beer garden, said Mike Mira, president of the East Pasco Rotary Charities, which has taken over the festival. Another change is that the event will be one day, instead of two. But the Oct. 19 festival will begin at 9 a.m. and go until 10 p.m., featuring an evening concert — another new twist, West said. The planned reptile show had to be cancelled, but Wild Things of Dade City will be doing a wild life show, Mira said. Efforts also are underway to try to bring a gator show to the festival, Mira said. In conjunction with the annual event, the Rotary Club of San Antonio is hosting the 35th annual Rattlesnake Run. Runners can choose to race for 5 miles or 1 mile on a course that includes hills, sidewalks, groves, a bridge and more hills.City gets youth infusion with new advisory councilBy Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com The last time Zephyrhills tried to form a youth council a decade ago, it didn’t last very long, but it produced at least one big result: a city councilman who would later become mayor. Now, Danny Burgess is set to resurrect the youth council concept after getting the go-ahead from the Zephyrhills City Council to form a new group designed to get young people involved in the community. Could there be future council members or mayors in that bunch? Absolutely, Burgess said. It also could help change the perception that Zephyrhills is primarily retirees. The community is much different than that, said Burgess, who is often greeted with odd looks when peopleDanny Burgess was just a year out of high school when he campaigned and won a seat on the Zephyrhills City Council in 2005. (file photo) Candlelight vigil to shine light on domestic violenceBy Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com Sunrise of Pasco County will take over Agnes Lamb Park in Dade City on Oct. 17 with its annual candlelight vigil. It’s the 17th annual event for the domestic and sexual violence center, but will be the first one with a new chief executive officer, Kelly Sinn. She took over for longtime leader Penny Morrill, who retired in May after 27 years at the helm. There is no other job more important to Sinn than helping victims of domestic violence. Yet it wasn’t always that way. In fact, when Sinn first joined Sunrise 11 years ago as an advocate in the women’s shelter, doing such work was the last thing on her mind. “I had no idea what domestic violence was. I was very nave,” Sinn said. “I didn’t even know agencies like this existed.” Sinn was introduced to Sunrise through another family member who was a children’s counselor there at the time. Although she was still a college student, Sinn had no trouble getting through the interview. But Sinn didn’t fully realize what she was getting into until she took a tour of the Dade City facility and its 24-bed shelter.

The event creates awareness of domestic and sexual violence, and encourages victims to seek help, and that they are not alone.

I stopped and smiled and said hello, but it was kind of surreal.” Later, a meeting broke up and all of the women who had taken part were crying. Sinn said she was worried something terrible had happened during their counseling session, but it was actually the exact opposite: They were tears of joy. “Whatever was discussed in that group, it was so powerful to them and impacted them so much,” Sinn said. “They cried because they were happy, they were safe, and were stronger for themselves and their children. I realized I really wanted to be able to impact somebody’s life like that.” Sinn switched majors from business to social work, and as she progressed in her education, she rose in the ranks at Sunrise, becoming its chief operating officer in 2010.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 16, 2013 2 Boothe kicking cancer for herself and her babyBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Ashley Boothe has been engaged in a battle with breast cancer for the last seven months, but she wasn’t just fighting it for herself. The Wesley Chapel woman was also battling for her unborn child. On Oct. 4, at 10:17 a.m., she won part of the fight. She delivered her son, Scott Gregory Booth III. He weighed 4 pounds, 8 ounces, and was 18.5 inches long. “Mom and dad and everything is fine,” said Lilly Fontanez, a family friend, shortly after the baby’s birth. But the little boy’s birth was hardly a sure thing. When Boothe was just a couple weeks into her pregnancy, she found a lump in her left breast. “I was putting lotion on to prevent stretch marks and I felt it. It was like, ‘That’s weird,’” the 26-year-old said. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had to make a decision. The doctor had informed her that her pregnancy was still in the early term and she could have an abortion. Boothe, however, was determined to have the baby. “I was like, ‘That word is not in my vocabulary. It’s not an option. God didn’t give me this baby for me to terminate him.’” Boothe, 26, said she made that decision even before she talked to the experts at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute who told her they could work around her pregnancy. The decision still carried increased concerns about her health and about the pregnancy. So, Booth told her husband Scott she would understand if he couldn’t support her decision. “I gave him an out card,” Boothe said. “He said, ‘Are you kidding me? You’re crazy. I’m not going anywhere.’” Boothe made the overture, she said, because she understands that some people just aren’t built to handle these kinds of challenges. “They can’t,” Boothe said. “It’s not that they’re not a strong person and it’s not that they’re not a good person. They just can’t bear to see people go through something like that.” But her husband stood strong. Choosing to have the baby has affected her cancer treatment and the baby’s birth date. “I had a total, radical modified mastectomy,” she said, noting it had to be done in the second trimester of her pregnancy. She has also undergone four sets of chemotherapy, where she received strange looks from people when they saw a pregnant woman on her way to treatments. While both Boothe and her husband had doubts, experts told her the type of chemotherapy she received during her pregnancy would not harm the baby. She had to have her baby delivered at around 33 weeks, instead of the typical 40, in order for her to stay on track for her treatments. That early delivery could cause complications, but Boothe said his development is now in God’s hands. Yet, her faith hasn’t always been this rock-solid. Boothe struggled with it after her mother, Donna Mullens, was struck by cancer for a second time. “I kind of had a falling out with the Lord when my mom was sick,” Boothe said. She was a teenager when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer the first time. “When she got sick the first time, she didn’t even want to tell me because she didn’t want me to get upset and she didn’t want to hurt me,” Boothe said.Her mother’s cancer returned in 2007, and by then Boothe had married and moved to Hawaii with her husband. Her parents had planned to visit her there, but had to cancel the trip when her mom got her diagnosis.Instead, Boothe returned to Lutz to help her mother. “She had a rough time,” Boothe said. “It was hard for me to watch her go through that.” After Mullens recovered once again, Boothe got involved in Relay for Life. She also became heavily involved in the Land O’ Lakes Sun Rays Concert for a Cure. Her friends recently got together to raise money for her with a Kicking Cancer for Ashley, scheduled for Oct. 12 in Land O’ Lakes. If anyone deserves help, it’s Boothe, Fontanez said. “When she found out that I had a (Relay for Life) team, she baked her heart out,” Fontanez said. “She went ahead and she did seven or eight cakes. She did chocolate-covered strawberries, candies, cookies.” In fact, Boothe made so many goodies that they were giving them away at the end of the event. “She’s done baking every year. She’s been on our team for five years,” Fontanez said. While Boothe is grateful for the help, she wishes she were on the giving, rather than the receiving, end. “I want to be independent. I want to do it on my own,” she said. “This time, I just can’t. I don’t have the resources. I don’t have the money. I don’t have the energy.” Boothe is humbled by the support that others are showing her. The Fit Body Boot Camp and the Firefighter Charities of Pasco Inc. also stepped up to help Boothe. Boothe said she is in awe by the kindness of others. “So many people are so giving. All of these businesses that are willing to donate, I’m just very grateful,” she said. She knows the road ahead will be challenging. She must undergo additional chemotherapy treatments and surgeries. And, it’s too soon to tell if her newborn son, who has been receiving special care since his birth, will face future medical challenges because of his premature birth. Despite the uncertainties, Boothe said she feels fortunate. “People are still worse off than me,” she said. “They’re still dealing with worse things than I’m dealing with. As long as I have my family and my husband and my God, I don’t worry anymore.” Ashley Boothe is not your typical mom. Not only did she deliver a healthy son on Oct. 4, but she had to fight breast cancer as well. (Photo by B.C.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 16, 2013 3 By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com An apartment community born in the middle of a housing bubble off a road not far from where the “Edward Scissorhands” castle once stood, has a new owner. A subsidiary of Beachwold Residential in New York City has purchased the nearly 200-unit Sweetwater Apartments in Pasco’s Happy Hill area for $12 million. It’s only the second owner for the complex, which was built in 2006, and multiple suitors had lined up to buy it. “There’s definitely a lot of competition now for properties like this,” said Gideon Friedman, a Beachwold managing member. “There were a number of people who were bidding on Sweetwater, but we were able to move quickly.” It’s the third property owned by Beachwold on Florida’s Gulf coast, Friedman said, joining two other properties in Bradenton and Venice. But it most likely won’t be the last. The northern part of the region — especially Pasco County — has piqued the interest of Beachwold, a company that owns various apartment communities around the country. Beachwold sees the area’s rapid population expansion outpacing available housing. “Dade City is an area where there is going to be some nice growth,” Friedman said. “There have been a few companies that have relocated there in the past year, and it’s just a mile or so from Saint Leo University, so it has a nice good stable base of people we can draw from.” The focus will be on students wanting to live close to Saint Leo, but also senior citizens as well. Friedman admits this is a bit of an unorthodox mix, since the demands of these two age groups are completely different. But then again, Saint Leo typically attracts students that are a little more lowkey. “It’s not like this would be a party situation for these students,” Friedman said. “The students who would live there would, for the most part, because they are looking for more space, and want something that is a little quieter than if they had moved in on-campus. They are looking for something more stable and mature than what they would find in dorms, and that matches up with what older residents are looking for as well.” Beachwold plans to upgrade furniture in the community’s clubhouse, and add a business center that would include Wi-Fi and computer work areas. The community is almost completely rented out, Friedman said, despite the fact that signs attracting new residents welcome visitors as they enter through the front gate. And as population continues to push north, the value of the units at Sweetwater will become even stronger. Real Data Apartment Market Research, which studies rental trends in various areas including this one, agrees. In its most recent report, the Tampa Bay market is just meeting apartment rental demand for the first time since the beginning of 2010. And while 7,000 new units are under construction in the region, apartment vacancies are sliding fast, pushing rental prices up. Friedman wouldn’t say where exactly his company would look next in Florida to buy more apartments, but it does look like they’re staying in Pasco County for the time being. “We’ve seen a lot of growth in Zephyrhills and New Tampa, and we’re going to be looking out in that direction,” Friedman said. “There have been some new properties coming to the market, and some of them have things we’re looking for, so we’re probably not done quite yet.” Sweetwater is located at 12730 Janke Road, less than two miles from Saint Leo University, and four miles southwest of downtown Dade City.Swiftmud lowers taxes, cuts budget The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Southwest Florida Water Management District, the water usage governing agency commonly known as Swiftmud, has reduced its ad valorem taxes for the upcoming fiscal year. Swiftmud’s governing board adopted a millage rate of 0.3818 mills, down 2.8 percent from the previous year. One mill represents $1 of tax on every $1,000 of taxable property value. For example, a home appraised at $150,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption would be levied a Swiftmud tax of $38.18 for the coming year. The savings represent a $2.9 million overall reduction in how much Swiftmud will collect from property owners this year compared to last year. This year’s budget totals $170.8 million. That budget includes $95.8 million for capital and infrastructure as well as other projects. Those investments, after being leveraged with various financial partners, will rise to $138 million. It will be funded using money available from previous years as well as projects that have already been completed under budget or outright cancelled. Swiftmud’s district encompasses roughly 10,000 square miles in all or part of 16 counties in the state, according to the agency’s website. It serves a population of 4.7 million people. The state allows Swiftmud to levy up to 1 mill, but the agency actually collects about a third of that with the current budget. Working to attract both college students and senior citizens to Sweetwater Apartments in Dade City might be an interesting experiment, but one that its new owners are confident can work. New York City-based Beachwold Residential has planned some small upgrades to the community, including a Wi-Fi-enabled work area.

By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Dr. Jonathan Phillips was in his residency near Pittsburgh when he was introduced to the realm of concussions and the kind of harm they can inflict. The deficits they cause can affect much more than an athlete’s ability to get back onto the playing field, said Phillips, whose office is in the Wellness Plaza at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. They can harm the athlete’s learning abilities and the impacts can spill over to family life, as parents have to shift their priorities to get proper treatment for their child. Philips is sharing that and more in a seminar, “Rising Dangers of Concussion: What Coaches, Parents and Young Athletes Need to Know.” It takes place Oct. 22 beginning at 6 p.m. Admission is free, and so is a meal that comes with it, but those wishing to attend must register in advance. Phillips is certified in sports medicine and has provided care for many athletes. During his fellowship at the University of South Florida, he took care of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the USF Bulls, and even the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team when they were in town for Spring Training. Now, he’s the team doctor for the Arena Football League team Tampa Bay Storm.“The biggest thing that people don’t realize is that concussions account for about 1.6 (million) of the 3.8 million of traumatic or mild brain injury in the folks ages 15 to 24,” said Phillips, citing statistics compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.To combat that problem, it’s essential for coaches, parents and athletes to become more aware of the causes and symptoms of concussions, and the proper course of treatment.Parents whose children don’t play heavy contact sports, such as football, may think their children aren’t at risk, Phillips said. But that isn’t true. Concussions can occur in athletes playing a wide range of sports, including soccer, basketball, baseball and volleyball.The CDC has published educational materials to help coaches, parents and athletes learn prevention strategies and how to identify symptoms. Phillips will discuss prevention, symptoms and treatment of concussion at his seminar. A concussion, the doctor said, “is a mechanical stress on the brain itself that causes it to move, or shift inside the head.” That shifting causes a metabolic injury to the brain, Phillips said. While concussions often result from a jolt or blow to the head, they can also be caused by a hit to another part of the body, such as a whiplash action, the doctor said. Symptoms of a concussion can include loss of consciousness, headaches, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, confusion, changes in behavior and sensitivity to noise or light. Those symptoms may become evident on a playing field, on the sideline or in a locker room, Phillips said. Sometimes, however, the signs of a concussion show up later.When a concussion is suspected, the next step is to seek medical care and then to receive medical clearance before returning to sport, the CDC says.Phillips recommends seeing a doctor who is knowledgeable about concussions — to get the proper care as quickly as possible and to avoid unnecessary tests, which can be expensive and may delay appropriate treatment.“Not everyone needs an MRI. Not everyone needs a CAT scan. Not everyone needs an EEG,” Phillips said, describing an electroencephalography exam. One tool that’s helpful is an online baseline test of an athlete’s memory, reaction time, motor speed and so on, Phillips said. “After they have a baseline test, if they were to get injured, it would be easy to see the comparison,” Phillips said, noting it’s just one of the tools that doctors use to evaluate a patient with a suspected concussion. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel provides these baseline tests for free to youth athletes, said Tracy Clouser, director of marketing for the hospital. While people may think that dramatic, head-jolting hits cause the worst concussions, Phillips said that small, repeated injuries are generally more damaging. “A lot of times those spectacular hits that you see where people get knocked out for oneor 15 seconds, and then they’re up — those folks recover fairly quickly as opposed to those with multiple hits,” he said. That’s because the athletes suffering the smaller, repeated hits tend to shake it off and get back into the game. But they are usually injured again before the first damage has a chance to heal, Phillips said. If a parent suspects his or her child has a concussion and they can’t get immediate medical care, the best course of treatment for the child is brain rest, Phillips said. “You need as much energy as possible to go to that area of the brain to heal it,” he said. “So, no texting. No computers. No TV. No reading.”They should have a medical professional check them out. Then, if they need continued treatment, they can seek a modified educational plan to help them heal, Phillips said.For instance, they may need more time to complete homework assignments. With concussions taking center stage in recent months, especially with the National Football League, there have been some fears that focusing so much attention on the problem will weaken sports. But no one is saying that athletes should be less competitive, Phillips said.

ADAMS Workers Compensation Slips and falls Negligent death Auto and motorcycle accidents Amputations and burns Dog bites Injuries to children Facial and sight injuries We will visit you at the hospital or home By Helene Rubenstein Grand Horizons As time marches on and we get closer and closer to returning to Grand Horizons, we do get reports on how things are in our development. From the newsletter that comes from Grand Horizons, and also some friends, we have heard of the activities that are starting to pick up and some that never stopped. Activities that have been going on continually and getting larger as you read this, are dominoes, which is loads of fun; mahjongg, which certainly makes you think; exercises in the pool, which is a good way to maintain your health and get some exercise; and some card games like poker, pay me, and others which are loads of fun. Bingo is a big hit for our residents and has continued throughout the summer months. There is so much more that have continued but now that our northern friends are returning, there will be so much more. I’m looking forward to a nice game of pinochle and learning new things in the world of art. In the meantime, while we are getting ready to join our friends in Florida, we are trying to make the most of it by going on some overnight or day trips. On Sept. 28, we went for a mystery trip. Marty knows that I enjoy not knowing where we are going and thereby tries to surprise me at least once during the summer or fall. The fact that I honestly do not know kind of intrigues me to guess, and I never guess correctly. As time progresses, maybe I will. Anyway, on this particular day, we woke up relatively early to fit in what Marty had planned. We started off by going to a huge church fair that they have every year, and we had fun just browsing and looking at all the baked goods. They sure looked good enough to eat, but we didn’t purchase any of them. We just tasted them in our dreams. We then drove on to North Windham, Conn., where we saw alpacas. Some were full-grown, while others were just a week old. I did feel one of them, and now I see why alpaca goods that are sold in gift shops are so very expensive, as it felt as smooth as silk. After spending some time here, we continued our trip to Brooklyn, Conn., where we went on the Creamery Brook Bison Tour. They had special wagon tours to take us through where the buffalo roam. It was a 40-minute ride through the entire working farm. Once they got to a clearing and stopped the wagon, the bison, cows and their calves came over to the wagon to get a snack of grain or hay. There were approximately 90 bison on this farm, and you can literally find them all over. The Creamery Brook Farm began as a dairy farm and later became a bison farm. It was because of their fascination with the “majestic buffalo” that the buffalo herd grew. After spending a lovely few hours here, we continued on to view the Mansfield Dam. We had stopped here many years ago, and they have built a lovely parking area where you can view the dam at your leisure. We then continued through several more towns until we stopped at Coventry and had a nice dinner. All in all it was a nice day and we got to enjoy the sunshine. When we arrived home from our mystery tour, an email came through with the upcoming events that they will have at Grand Horizons. Just to name a few, and what the people in Grand Horizons can expect in the future, are things like Taco Night that will be hosted by Andy and Margaret Castonguay, pancake breakfasts will once again start up and so will Egg n’ bag. Both of these functions are an absolute delight. Card making, which is always very enjoyable, will also start up, plus so many other activities. There will be a Halloween potluck on Oct. 31 hosted by Robbie Lockard, and we will have music by Gary Wilcox. There will be a fashion show by Bon Worth hosted by Cathy Cribbs. A community wide yard sale will be on Nov. 16, and there will be lunch, plus baked goods and a book sale in the community center. Also planned is a Thanksgiving dinner/ potluck on Nov. 26. A talent show is planned for some time in the fall season plus more as the year progresses. We have all this to look forward to!Mansfield Dam in Connecticut was one of the stops on the Rubensteins’ latest ‘mystery tour.’ (Photos by Marty Rubenstein) A baby alpaca pauses to greet guests at a North Windham, Conn. farm.

But what they don’t realize is that we’re a diverse community. We have retirees, older families, younger families. We are just a great melting pot,” Burgess said. When Burgess served on the youth council, his group would sit at a table in front of the City Council, taking in meeting after meeting. It was an eye-opening experience for Burgess, who up until then had never considered doing anything with city government. But this was during a tumultuous time, when the government was arguing over the renaming of Sixth Avenue to honor civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. “We were front and center during that whole debate,” Burgess said. “We got a crash course at that meeting, as well as in general, about what it means to lead a city.” While he hopes there won’t be a major controversy like that one, Burgess said the new youth council will have a chance to experience government for the first time like he did, and even play an active role by advising the City Council on issues affecting young people. The board will have seven members who are in public, private or home school, and are in at least ninth grade. Each will be selected by the City Council through the standard board application process, and after the initial board, will serve terms of two years. The goals of the youth council include evaluating and reviewing problems facing youth in Zephyrhills, conducting community meetings with youth to learn about additional issues, and presenting their refined ideas to city leaders. The City Council decided to revive the Youth Council because of the efforts of Victoria Tinney, a Girl Scouts member who is a freshman at Zephyrhills High School. “She had to do a community project for a badge, and Victoria approached me and asked if there was a way to create a forum or group for the youth to be more involved with the City Council,” Burgess said. “Victoria actually came and presented to the City Council her vision, her idea, of what she wanted.” There are a lot of issues facing young people in the community — especially when it comes to recreational opportunities and job creation — that could benefit from their unique insight. That’s exactly what Councilwoman Jodi Wilkeson hopes will happen. “A lot of young people are moving away as soon as they graduate from high school, and I want a place for my kids to want to come home to when they get a college education, and not live somewhere else,” Wilkeson said. “If those young people come to us and say there are opportunities to encourage other kids who are not in service clubs, who are not participating in sports, to go to school and they have ideas about that, we’re going to listen.” Teenagers in grades nine through 12 are encouraged to apply for the youth council through the standard board selection process. The form can be found at tinyurl.com/ZhillsYouth. She takes over an organization that has grown from just one employee and a $35,000 budget three decades ago, to one that now operates on $1.5 million a year, with 34 staff members. It’s also in the middle of expanding its shelter from 24 beds to 40. Yet the focus of Sunrise has never changed — helping the victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. In 2010, more than 113,000 crimes of domestic violence were reported to police in Florida, according to the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Yet, many more go unreported. “Fear is typically the No. 1 reason victims stay in an abusive relationship,” Sinn said. “But fear is also the No. 1 reason why they will get out of a relationship as well, because they are afraid of what will happen if they continue to stay.” However, many abuse victims get caught in a cycle where they return to the person who abused them in the first place. Sometimes they can go back as many as 10 times before they finally stay away, Sinn said.“When women and children come into our facility and into our shelter, many times they have very low self-esteem,” Sinn said. “But seeing how they progress once they get here, where they have a new home that is safe, and how far they’ve come, that’s so powerful.” The candlelight vigil begins at 6 p.m. at the park, which is located in the heart of Dade City’s downtown. Besides the hundreds of lit candles, one of the more moving displays is the dozens of T-shirts hung from clotheslines designed by domestic violence victims. It’s part of The Clothesline Project, created by a group of women in 1990 after they discovered that during the Vietnam War, 51,000 women were killed in domestic violence incidents — at the same time 58,000 soldiers were killed in the conflict. The shirts themselves come in various colors, each with its own meaning. A white shirt represents a woman who died from domestic violence. Yellow or beige is for those who have been battered or assaulted. Red, pink and orange are for survivors of rape and sexual assault. Blue and green represent survivors of incest and sexual abuse. And purple or lavender represents women attacked because of their sexual orientation. Messages on the shirt can range from short statements like, “You may have defeated me, but you will not destroy me,” to longer stories and poems. “Every year, we use domestic violence month to acknowledge and honor the survivors that have been able to escape abusive homes, and remember those who have lost their lives,” Sinn said. “We shed light on all of this, for those who are still living in those types of situations, with the hope that they’ll seek out help.” The candlelight vigil is not a fundraiser for the group, which operates on donations and grants. Yet anyone interested in helping out Sunrise can call (352) 567-1681, or visit www.SunrisePasco.org. The event also features festival foods galore. Eddie Herrmann, one of the festival’s original founders, recalls its early days when it actually featured a rattlesnake roundup, with people bringing rattlesnakes they had captured. They would enter them in competitions judging size, weight and appearance.The snakes would win prizes, and in turn, they would be used in payment for the snake expert who put on a show, Herrmann said.Real gopher tortoises were used in races, too, Herrmann said. But that stopped after state officials objected to people handling the reptiles. Mechanical tortoises, designed by Herrmann, now take the place of the live ones. While there have been changes over time, the festival still aims to provide affordable family fun, and to raise money for community causes, West said. There’s no admission charge or parking fee, but attractions within the festival and food will carry a cost, West said. Those attending the festival will have plenty of choices of things to see and do and can get their fill of festival foods.This year’s slate of entertainers includes The Beaumont Family Bluegrass Band, the Florida Cracker Boys, Steelhorse and Crabgrass Cowboys. Cowboy Tom will be there, too.There will be animal shows, arts and crafts, a truck show, and rides and games for kids. People who want to grab a bite to eat or something to drink can purchase such offerings as barbecue chicken, corn on the cob, rattlesnake bites, gator nuggets, pizza and funnel cakes. Rod Lincoln, owner of Sonny’s Real Pit Bar-B-Q in Zephyrhills, has donated 700 chicken dinners and is the event’s primary sponsor, Mira said. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Rotary clubs, which in turn provide a considerable amount of support in the community, Mira said. Rotary clubs, for example, provide food bags for families in need during the holidays, bags of food to help feed hungry children during summer months, and school supplies for kids going back to school. If you goThe 17th annual Candlelight Vigil from Sunrise of Pasco County Inc. and The Clothesline Project, will take place Oct. 17 beginning at 6 p.m. at Agnes Lamb Park in downtown Dade City. Seating is limited, so be sure to bring a chair or blanket. Admission is free. For more information, call (352) 567-1681, or visit www.SunrisePasco.org.
