It is getting mixed reviews from community leaders and elected officials in the Tampa Bay region. In the next weeks and months, representatives of Jacob Engineering will gather public comments on the plan. The Tampa Bay Transportation Management Area Leadership Group, which includes Pasco County Commissioners Kathryn Starkey and Jack Mariano, will get a finalized plan by October. The group also will consider a second project for an urban rail system running on about 9 miles of CSX rail lines between downtown Tampa and the University of South Florida. In January, a study by Jacobs Engineering singled out the bus rapid transit system, or Â“rubber tires,Â” as a doable starter project that would lay a foundation for a long-range transit plan for the region. Â“ItÂ’s not replacing anything in the vision,Â” said Scott Pringle, of Jacob Engineering. Â“ItÂ’s just to get things started.Â” It also would be something that can be built, if approved, within about five years, Pringle said. The CSX rail project would have a longer timeline of about 10 years, he added. The bus rapid transit system isnÂ’t the usual bus service offered by most local transit agencies, Pringle said. Â“They look like a train,Â” he said. Â“They feel like a train.Â” Pringle has made presentations on the study to the leadership group, and, also recently spoke to the Hillsborough County Young Democrats at their meeting in Ybor City. The projectÂ’s public rollout through spring and summer of 2018 will include online data and surveys, and a speakerÂ’s bureau. The Florida Department of Transportation funded the study, with Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) See TRANSIT, page15A Bus rapid transit could be ride of the future FILEWhile generally supportive of a proposed bus rapid transit system, Pasco County commissioners Kathryn Starkey and Jack Mariano want future transportation projects to focus on other areas within Pasco County, including western Pasco and the CSX rail lines that travel up U.S. 41 into Lutz and Land OÂ’ Lakes.By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comJust days removed from celebrating a gold medal win in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, the USA womenÂ’s ice hockey team returned to where their remarkable journey all began Â— Wesley Chapel. ItÂ’s where the team spent more than five months getting prepared for the Winter Olympics, training at Florida Hospital Center Ice and lodging at Saddlebrook Resort. ItÂ’s also where daily practices, off-ice testing and intrasquad scrimmages were used to determine the 23 players selected for the Team USA roster back in May. The team spent the better part of an hour on the afternoon of Feb. 28 greeting fans, posing for pictures and signing autographs at the Center Ice facility. The surprise visit was part of a nationwide media blitz that took them to Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and New York City. A week earlier, the team defeated Canada By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comConstruction on the State Road 56 extension is on track for its scheduled completion in late 2019, according to Florida Department of Transportation officials. The approximately 6-mile extension will give motorists a new four-lane route between Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills. Work began in February 2017. City planners in Zephyrhills are looking ahead to the projectÂ’s completion, and its impact on development. Â“We have a lot going on over here already,Â” said Todd Vande berg, Zephyrhills planning director. Â“ItÂ’s going to be a gamechanger with State Road 56 coming here as a four-lane road.Â” But, Zephyrhills officials also are pursuing an additional extension to State Road 56 that would link to State Road 39. They requested $1 million in the Florida 2019 budget to fund a planning study for the project. Legislators are expected to approve a budget by March 9. The budget then would go to Gov. Rick Scott, who has line-item veto authority. Added connectivity helps the entire area, See SR 56, page15A in a 3-2 shootout to win gold, ending a 20year drought for the womenÂ’s hockey program. Moments since have been nothing short of surreal for Team USA, from celebrating the victory to the fan support. Â“ItÂ’s been overwhelming, exciting, just a whirlwind,Â” said two-time Olympian and forward Kendall Coyne. Â“ItÂ’s been truly an honor to bring home this gold to the United States, and to see the reaction from everybody and the support.Â” Â“ItÂ’s been crazy,Â” added 19-year-old defenseman Cayla Barnes, the youngest member of Team USA. Â“This has been a goal of ours for so long, and it just proves you can do whatever you set your mind to.Â” Their time spent in Wesley Chapel wonÂ’t soon be forgotten, either, from top-flight training digs and hospitality, to the warm, sunny weather. Â“These facilities were awesome, the staff here was amazing, and they really helped us with everything we needed,Â” Barnes said. Â“It was great to be down here, such nice weather, and really nice to train out here in preparation for the games.Â” Â“Hockey in Florida was new to a lot of us, but I donÂ’t think it took long for us to realize that hockey is serious in Florida,Â” said Coyne. Â“The growth is amazing, and just to see the growth in the short six months we were here just shows how much more there can be.Â”KEVIN WEISSThe U.S. womenÂ’s national ice hockey team posed for pictures on Feb. 28 at Florida Hospital Center Ice, in Wesley Chapel.

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhile itÂ’s a long way from having the permanent worship space and congregation it intends to have, the Episcopal Church has found an initial home at a business park in Wesley Chapel. The church, at 3758 Maryweather Lane in Wesley Chapel, is now having monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of the month, which begins with evening prayer at 6:30 p.m., and then is followed by a core group meeting. It currently has four core group members, but needs a dozen to create the various teams needed to launch the church, said the Rev. Adrienne Hymes, whose official title is Diocesan Missioner for Church Extension. The core group is focusing on the areas of theological and spiritual formation; discipleship, evangelism and mission. Efforts continue to recruit additional core group members. Members of that team need to be people with vision Â— who can see things that are not yet there, Hymes said. While much work remains to be done, Hymes is encouraged by the progress so far. Â“The Holy Spirt has really been active in this ministry,Â” she said. Â“It (the church planting) is moving faster than the plan on paper.Â” The church is planning a soft launch in June, when it will transition to weekly Wednesday evening prayer meetings and core group meetings. It also will begin Sunday 9 a.m. services. The hope is for an official launch of the church in November, Hymes said. The church opened at its current location during the week of Ash Wednesday, allowing it to have its first Ash Wednesday service there. Fourteen people attended. These milestones are important, Hymes said, noting they provide encouragement to the people who are working to help establish the Episcopal Church in Wesley Chapel. Hymes said she knows there is a need for the church in the community. Â“There are Episcopalians here. They donÂ’t want to drive. They want to go to church where they live,Â” she said. She also knows that having a church in Wesley Chapel makes it possible for people to be more involved in their community. Â“Discipleship is determined by distance,Â” she said. She said sheÂ’s heard from Episcopalians, Â“Â‘Yeah, weÂ’d love Sunday service, but IÂ’d also like to be able to do Bible Study during the week. I also want to be able to learn more about the Book of Common Prayer during the week,Â’Â” she said. But, thatÂ’s difficult to do, if your church is 20 miles away, she said. When people reach out to her to let her know that theyÂ’re interested in attending an Episcopal Church in Wesley Chapel, she makes it clear that this church is still in its formative stages. She tells people when they come: Â“DonÂ’t have any expectations other than: Â‘WeÂ’re here to be present for GodÂ’s people.Â’Â” Some things that need to be done before the church can have a formal launch include coming up with a name for the church, establishing child care provisions and setting up its music program, Hymes said. While the church continues to plan and work toward its future, it continues moving forward. For instance, it is hosting a six-week Lenten Series, which began on Feb. 21 and concludes on March 28. The Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida, which has 77 churches, has been wanting to establish a presence in Wesley Chapel for many years. If youÂ’d like to get involved or would like to know more, contact Hymes at (813) 4181281 or email@example.com.Episcopal Church has its first home in Wesley Chapel Lenten seriesHere is the schedule for the rest of the Lenten Series being hosted by the Episcopal Church in Wesley Chapel. The sessions begin with a simple supper at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The first two sessions will be led by Brother Eric Mukasa, a former Benedictine Monk, and the last three sessions will be led by The Rev.

Moonshine, Turpentine and TimberThe theme of this years 108th Founders Day in Zephyrhills is Timber, Turpentine and Moonshine.The trio of products played an important role during Zephyrhills early days. Vast pine and cypress were abundant throughout the area and provided raw materials for building. Besides timber, they provided turpentine and related products. Greers Lumber Mill, operated by Jim Greer, was the largest employer for the first two decades and fortified settlers with resources to build their cracker homes. The Great Depression closed Greers Lumber Mill. But, the town began to flourish again after 1932, when I.A. Krusen purchased 13,000 acres and opened the Krusen Land & Timber Company. Later, Camp Number 39 of Hercules Powder Company was opened in Zephyrhills and had the distinction of being the largest employer in the city from 1946 until its closing in 1962. Farmers and ranchers within a 35-mile radius contracted with Hercules to remove pine stumps, which were processed into products such as rosin, turpentine and pine oil, as well as byproducts used in paper, paints, varnishes, adhesives, asphalt emulsions, gun powder and dynamite. Although Zephyrhills was less distinguished for moonshine than neighboring communities, such as Wesley Chapel, an occasional settler turned to moonshine stills, as well as charcoal kilns and cash-crops, to subsist. When Prohibition banned the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcohol, moonshine stills provided an alternative source of liquor. Even after Prohibition ended, occasional moonshining continued until the 1950s. Several families still hold moonshine recipes. Marlo Hilton, a hometown girl and 1998 Zephyrhills High School graduate, remembers using a metal detector at her familys ranch to explore the area to the west of her home, where Stanley Ryals, her great-grandfather, had his moonshine still. They were a tough breed, said Hilton, who spoke lovingly of her iconic great-grandfather, who died in 2000. Ryals used profits from bootlegging, as well as the sale of sweet potatoes, to purchase 640 acres in the Zephyrhills area. Later, he opened Zephyr Lumber and Saw Mill where he logged, cut and sanded timber. Ryals contributed much to the city, serving as president of the chamber of commerce in the late 1950s and as a founding member of Zephyrhills Noon Rotary Club, where he had a 30-year perfect attendance record. Ryals father-in-law was Wesley Wells, the chief of police in Zephyrhills. His grandson, Boe Hilton (who is Marlos father and a 1971 graduate of Zephyrhills High) observed that his grandfather understood people and knew how to build upon their strengths. The most notorious bootlegger in the area was Clarence Lane, who described himself, in a 2005 interview, as one of the top 10 moonshiner/bootleggers in Florida. Lane said during the 1930s many of his customers were law enforcement officers and judges. Lane said he began moonshining as a teenager, learning the skills from his father. His first still was in Kathleen. Later, he moved to Zephyrhills. At age 19, Lonnie Tucker from Wesley Chapel, worked in Zephyrhills for I.A. Krusen during the day in the Lumber Company. He also operated a still near the current location of Saddlebrook Resort. Tucker later worked at Moodys Hardware, in Zephyrhills, for more than a quarter-century. His daughter, Anna Jo Bracknell, will be on hand at Founders Day for one of the porch talks at the Howard B. Jeffries house. She plans to share stories about moonshining during her 1 p.m. talk on March 10.

Two shows will give students a chance to shine, and offer the audience the opportunity to be entertained by accomplished young singers, dancers and musicians. More than 170 students, making up 90 acts, auditioned during a 12-hour day for the producers for the opportunity to be named a finalist. A total of 65 acts, consisting of 142 students, were chosen to perform at the finals, according to a news release. Two shows are planned to give finalists a chance to compete for honors. The Heritage Arts Center Association, which produces the show, will again be presenting a $1,000 Pasco Heritage Scholarship to the graduating Pasco County senior who receives the highest scores from the judges. Last years scholarship recipient was Jessica Twitmyer, a singer. Both shows will be on March 10 at Center for the Arts at Wesley Chapel, 30651 Wells Road in Wesley Chapel. Act I begins at noon, with the younger solos and groups. Act II begins at 7 p.m., and will feature older solos and groups. Tickets are $12 for adults per show, or $20 for both shows; $6 for students through high school, or $10 for both shows; and free for children under $5. Tickets are available for purchase at the door. The emcee for the show is Grace Badillo. The competition draws contestants from across the region, representing numerous performers from a variety of studios and instructors. Two professional panels of judges will select winners for cash prizes. A total of more than $4,000 in cash, trophies, and ribbons will be presented to winners in eight categories. Performances will vary from jazz to classical, Broadway to rock. Piano selections will range from Chopin to Hamilton to the Greatest Showman. There will be Cirque du Soleil number, a trumpet solo, and a flag dance, to name just a few. Spotlight is a family affair, with three sets of sisters competing, one family with three siblings competing; husbands and wives who volunteer together; and, producers who are mother and daughter. The competition is celebrating its 35th season and has come full circle, with Spotlight alums now handling various responsibilities for the production. Three of those alums sit on the Heritage Arts Board of Directors, and the two assistant producers, Michael Roberts and Rebecca Friedman Groomes, were annual contestants from the age of 5. The Spotlight competition costs more than $18,000 to produce, and would be impossible without the support of area businesses and individuals. Barbara Friedman is the executive producer of the annual talent showcase.Regional talent show lets area youths take center stage FILE 35th annual Spotlight on TalentWHERE: Center for the Arts at Wesley Chapel, 30651 Wells Road in Wesley ChapelWHEN:Act I, noon on March 10; Act II, 7 p.m. on March 10COST:$12 for adults per show, or $20 for both shows; $6 for students through high school, or $10 for both shows.

patterns, he said. Behavioral symptoms can include crying spells, withdrawal from others, neglect of responsibilities, loss of interest in personal appearance, loss of motivation, slow movement, or use of drugs and alcohol. They may also exhibit feelings of guilt, confusion and low self-esteem. In addition to serious mood, cognitive and physical symptoms, depression is associated with higher rates of chronic disease, increased health care utilization, and impaired functioning. Daniels said the impact of moderate and severe depression is comparable to someone with multiple sclerosis, asthma, chronic hepatitis B, and even someone whos quadriplegic. We dont think in those terms of how depression shuts us down, but it does, he said. The speaker cautioned against bombarding depression sufferers with intrusive questions. He also noted that constantly watching them could create anxiety, and cause them to feel more helpless and hopeless. Do not keep asking them, Whats wrong? People that suffer with depression half the time they cant even tell you whats wrong with them because they dont even know, Daniels explained. The speaker also said family and close friends need to determine if a depression sufferer is getting enough sleep. Lack of sleep, he said, can exacerbate depression symptoms and cause psychotic-like behavior because they cant shut themselves down. He offered several best practices in helping someone deal with depression: Dont touch the person, unless they give you permission Avoid direct eye contact, and refrain from staring Avoid sudden or rapid movements Dont make promises you cannot keep Be genuine with them Talk calmly to them, and ask what you can do to help Depression-related suicide was also broached during the seminar. Daniels said a red flag to watch out for is sudden mood changes such as overt happiness as it may indicate theyve made up their minds to complete the suicide. Said Daniels, All along theyve been depressed, they talk about it, all of a sudden one day they say, Im OK now. Everything is fine. We miss it by thinking, Theyre OK now. Theyre doing so much better. Thats when you need to ask questions. Daniels also urged students dealing with mental disorders to not be afraid to seek help. His life improved after he sought treatment, he said. I had to understand what I was dealing with and how to deal with those situations in my life. Theres nothing wrong with being transparent and letting people know certain things, he said. All of us go through problems in life., Daniels said. Theres no shame in that. 8A Tracy Daniels knows what its like to battle mental health issues. A retired combat war veteran, Daniels spent seven years in therapy following his second tour in Iraq. Following a 37-year military career, Daniels now seeks to help others who are dealing with mental health issues. Daniels is a master-level practitioner at Baycare Behavioral Health. He was the featured speaker at a depression awareness seminar at Pasco-Hernando State College. The Feb. 21 event was part of the state colleges ongoing Community Awareness Series, open to the public, students, faculty and staff. The talk touched on how to recognize signs and symptoms of depression, risk factors, and ways to cope with the disease. The speaker touched on the stigma associated with mental disorders, such as depression and the belief from some that sufferers are crazy, psycho or just plain attention-seeking. Those attitudes are often because people are ill-informed about mental health problems, and they base their thinking from whats portrayed in media. If theres something going on with me, it does not mean Im a crazy individual. It means that I need some help, Daniels said. We think people that have mental issues are going to do things and act in a certain way, and thats the furthest thing from the truth, he added. Daniels steered much of the conversation toward depression. As it turns out, that illness is widespread. The National Institute on Mental Health estimates that in the United States, 16.2 million adults over age 18 had at least one major depressive episode in 2016. This number represents nearly 7 percent of all U.S. adults. Additionally, one in five adults in the U.S., display some sort of mental health disorder each year. Anxiety is reported as most common, followed by major depression and substance use disorder. Depression can drastically affect a persons ability to work, carry out daily activities, and engage in satisfying relationships, Daniels said. Physical symptoms can range from fatigue and lack of energy, to unexplained aches and pains, as well as irregular sleeping and eating Possible signs and symptoms of depressionPhysical: Fatigue Lack of energy Irregular sleep patterns Irregular eating patterns Constipation Changes in weight Headaches Irregular menstrual cycles Loss of sexual desire Unexplained aches and painsBehavioral: Crying spells Withdrawal from others Neglect of responsibilities Loss of interest in personal appearance Loss of motivation Slow movement Use of drugs and alcoholPsychological Sadness Anxiety Guilt Anger Mood swings Lack of emotional responsiveness Feelings of helplessness or hopelessness Irritability Frequent self-criticism, self-blame, pessimism Impaired memory and concentration Indecisiveness and confusion Tendency to believe that others see you in a negative light Thoughts of death and suicideSource: Baycare Behavioral HealthInternet providers will be able to compete for up to $2 billion in federal dollars to bring high-speed Internet to underserved rural areas across the country, according to a news release from the Federal Communications Commission.

S M arch 7, 20189A These technicians focus on service only come from the woman in the family Behind every successful business there is a leader whose vision has shaped the company as it overcame the challenges of growth. Dana Spears is that leader at Cornerstone Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical, one of Pascos most successful family businesses. Dana has lead Cornerstone for the past 12 years. Her determination and never-give-up attitude has resulted in the company growing from six to sixty employees, and serving more than 40,000 customers. It is also evident by Cornerstones new 6,000-square-foot warehouse that is currently under construction at its Land O Lakes location on U.S. 41. Dana attributes much of her companys success to being a womanowned business. Women understand that nothing is more important than being customer centered. Its the little things that we do in the first 30 seconds that sets the tone for exceeding customer expectations, said Dana. When people call, they assume we have the technical expertise to solve their problem, she continues. What they remember is how they felt when they first talked to our customer service rep, or first meet our technician at their door. Its the kind, helpful voice, the clean uniform, the shoe covers, that set us apart. Every Cornerstone employee is trained to the companys high customer service standards. As a wife and mom of five, I know how it feels to allow someone into your home, Dana explains. When we send a tech to a customers home, I feel just like I am sending them to my own home. Over two-thirds of our calls y, and as a woman, I fully understand her concerns and expectations when she allows someone into her home. 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. We expanded because our customers kept asking if we could provide other home improvement services, said Dana. They trusted us and were comfortable having us in their homes, and we wanted to accommodate them. All of Cornerstones technicians are specialists who have specific training in their field. This means our A/C guys are experts at air conditioning, and do not go out on plumbing and electrical calls, said Dana. We have certified plumbers and electricians for those calls. Cornerstone warranties all of its work, and has a dedicated team of experienced technicians who follow up on any warranty problem. There is no charge for this service, and techs keep coming back until the problem is 100 percent resolved. Cornerstone also maintains a separate maintenance department for customers who want regular cleaning services and preventative checkups. y, and do not promote additional services or products during their visits. We are successful because weve built our business trust, said Dana. behind the work o f go above and expectations. Ev e employees strive t o every day.

For more t their website at o m.Paid Advertisement Special to The Laker/Lutz News Its been just a few weeks since the opening of ER 24/7 In Lutz, and already its staff is seeing more patients than anticipated over 30 people a day and growing. Its evident by the number of folks coming in that there is a real demand for community-based emergency services in this area, said Christine Sanchez, director of emergency services for the new facility that operates under the auspices of Medical Center of Trinity. The most common reasons people come to the new ER facility, which is located at 1430 Dale Mabry Hwy, next to Walmart, is for chest pains, stroke symptoms, respiratory failure, blood clots and the flu. The emergency services we provide here are no different than those at our main campus in Trinity, said Sanchez. However, our care here is faster because we have fewer patients and urgent medical situations. Like all emergency rooms, ER 24/7 In Lutz uses a triage system, which treats patients with life threatening situations first, explains Sanchez. But even with triage, patients are usually seen within five or 10 minutes. We find freestanding ERs to be a much calmer, less stressful environment than a hospital emergency room, said Sanchez. This makes it a much better environment for patients and their families, and is conducive to making patient care more streamlined and efficient. Efficiency also comes from the facilitys on-site, full service laboratory and diagnostic equipment, including CT Scan, Ultrasound and X-ray, all available 24 hours a day. Because we are not sharing our lab and diagnostic tools with an entire hospital, our patients get their results back very quickly, said Sanchez. Often times the reason behind long waits at a hospital ER is because they are waiting on a patients test results. That is never a problem here. Freestanding ERs also offer more personal care. Our employees are dedicated to our Lutz facility they live in the same community as our patients, and sincerely care about their neighbors, said Sanchez. Sanchezs staff of 22 includes 12 nurses all whom have five or more years of emergency care experience and certifications and physicians who are all Board Certified in Emergency Care. It is important to understand, Sanchez explains, that a freestanding ER is not the same as a walk-in or urgent care clinic.ER 24/7 In Lutz is no different than an ER at a hospital, said Sanchez. By comparison, an urgent care center is for someone who would normally see their family doctor for a medical situation that happens after their doctors office is closed.The new ER center, which opened in late January, is 11,200 square feet and a $10.3 million investment by the facilitys parent company, HCA Healthcare. The building shares the same entrance and exit as the Walmart Supercenter at the Dale Mabry and U.S. 41 apex, located a half mile south of State Road 54. To limit the spread of contagious illnesses, there are separate entrances for adults and children. The childrens waiting area is delightful space with hand painted murals portraying Lutzs rural heritage, including scenes of the Old Lutz Schoolhouse (1927) and the Lutz Train Depot (1909) both still standing today just a few miles down the road on US 41 in downtown Lutz. Christine Sanchez, director of emergency services at ER 24/7 In Lutz, shows off the hometown murals in the childrens waiting area.ER 24/7 In Lutz Provides Convenient, Expert Care Do You Need An ER?

Â“We could have a true, multicounty arterial road,Â” he said. Current roadwork will extend State Road 56 from Meadow Pointe Boulevard in Wiregrass Ranch to U.S. 301 in Zephyrhills. A 10-foot wide multi-use trail will run along the south side of State Road 56. A 5-foot sidewalk will be installed on the north side. Seven-foot bicycle lanes will be striped off in each direction. Traffic signals are planned at Morris Bridge Road, at its new intersection with State Road 56, and also at U.S. 301 where it will connect with the new extension. New residential and commercial projects are anticipated. Four developers are planning masterplanned communities along State Road 56. The Zephyrhills Municipal Airport also will benefit from the project. The airport is undergoing upgrades. About 440 acres adjacent to the site also are being prepared for future development, and will be marketed as site-ready. As of Feb. 20, a checklist of milestones from state highway officials on the State Road 56 extension included: Â 15 retention ponds, of 17 total, are nearly complete Â About 75 percent of the stormwater drainage system is installed Â The first three layers of asphalt has been laid on nearly 2 miles of the 6-mile road Â About 3 miles of concrete sidewalk is complete Â About 1 mile of the multi-use path is complete The westbound segment of the bridge work over New River also is finished and work is underway on the eastbound segment. For more information, visit tinyurl.com/ycx2x3y5.SR 56, from page 1A Coyne added, the gold medal victory provides a Â“huge opportunityÂ” to further the sport in the United States, particularly among young girls. The 25-year-old herself was inspired by Hall of Famer Cammi Granato and the 1998 U.S. Olympic WomenÂ’s Ice Hockey, the last team to win gold. Â“With our win, I think we can get more girls playing across the United States,Â” Coye said. Â“If you look at our team currently, a lot of us are playing because we saw the Â’98 team win a gold medal. So, knowing that feeling and knowing personally I was one of themÂ… I saw Cammi Granato, and seeing her gold medal made me want to become one of them.Â” Having Team USA train in Wesley Chapel was likewise beneficial to Florida Hospital Center Ice and the Tampa Bay hockey community, said Gordie Zimmerman, managing partner and developer of Florida Hospital Center Ice. The $28 million,150,500-square-foot complex was picked as Team USAÂ’s training ground over such hockey facilities in Boston, Chicago and others. Â“ItÂ’s been terrific on every front Â— for the development of hockey for the girls and the boys, and just the awareness and having the girls here in the facility,Â” explained Zimmerman. Â“I think there was a lot of pressure on them and where they trainÂ…and it turned out to be a great experience for everybody. This wave is going to continue, and you can see like with the girlsÂ’ (programs) Â— and thatÂ’s what itÂ’s all about.Â” As one of dozens of fans at the meet-andgreet, Wesley Chapel resident Rob Simonelli just couldnÂ’t pass up the chance to take photos and chat it up with the newly crowned Olympic gold medalists. He found out about the teamÂ’s surprise appearance at Center Ice through a friend who caught wind of the event. Â“I had a feeling because they had been here for a couple months with their training that theyÂ’ve got to come back and take a look at the people at the rink,Â” said Simonelli, who plays recreational hockey at Center Ice along with his son. Â“TheyÂ’re really friendly, and itÂ’s nice that they decided to come and just kind of say Â‘HeyÂ’ to the people.Â” Simonelli said he watched much of the Olympic coverage on television, and even attended some of the teamÂ’s tryouts and international games at Center Ice last year. Besides national pride, he felt some local pride, too. Â“I just was excited that this was their home base. Just following them when they made this their home was kind of cool,Â” Simonelli said. Another exuberant fan, Tampa resident Chad Courson, came to the event equipped with a Team USA jacket and a Â“Gold Medal editionÂ” box of Corn Flakes featuring a cover picture of USA womenÂ’s gold winning hockey star Meghan Duggan. He brought both items to get signed. He also bought about 40 other boxes of the limited-edition Corn Flakes to get signed later that night at Amalie Arena as part of another Team USA appearance. Â“I met the team on previous occasions, but itÂ’s still cool,Â” Courson said of the teamÂ’s stop in Wesley Chapel. As for the teamÂ’s run in PyeongChang? Â“It was amazing,Â” Courson said.HOCKEY, from page 1A as the studyÂ’s manager. The 41-mile bus route would travel from Wesley Chapel to downtown St. Petersburg, with connections to downtown Tampa, the University of South Florida and the Westshore business district. Routes also would connect to Brandon and Clearwater. Estimated capital costs would be between $380 million and $455 million, with an annual operating cost of about $7 million. Projections are for about 3.3 million trips per year. The estimated cost per trip for the bus option is $8 to $10 per trip; and $11 to $13 for the CSX option. Costs would be shared with federal, state and local governments. A total of 21 bus stations are proposed, with 19 being at ground level and two elevated. Sleek, train-style buses would ride in designated lanes, bypassing other traffic. For a large portion of the route, the lanes would run parallel to Interstate 275, built on widened shoulders of the highway. Placing designated bus lanes in the median would cost more than $2 billion, according to the study. No right-of-way would be needed for lanes on I-275 shoulder. Rightof-way would be needed for bus stations. Starkey said she had seen examples of how transit stations in Miami spurred new development. That can happen here also, she said. Â“We have the ability to start something here that we all can benefit from,Â” said Starkey, speaking at a January leadership meeting. The estimated travel time for a full ride from Wesley Chapel to St. Petersburg would be about 80 minutes to 95 minutes, assuming the bus stops at every station on the route. Two stations would be built in Wesley Chapel, along State Road 54 and State Road 56. Â“They would be geared toward park and ride,Â” said Pringle. At leadership group meetings, Starkey and Mariano have been supportive but have raised questions about the need for additional financial information. They also want future projects to focus on more areas within Pasco, including western Pasco and the CSX rail lines that travel up U.S. 41 into Lutz and Land OÂ’ Lakes. Â“I support starting in Wesley Chapel,Â” said Starkey, but noted that heavily populated west Pasco needs transit, as well. Long-range options in the transit vision include self-driving vehicles, light rail, and water-based ferries. Â“We are certainly leap-frogging in technology,Â” she said. Â“IÂ’m excited to be a part of this.Â” Mariano isnÂ’t convinced it would take as long as 10 years for the rail project to materialize. He also wanted information on land values along the rail line. Â“I think also Hernando County, at some point, needs to come in, especially looking at U.S. 41,Â” Mariano said. Pringle said a dialogue with CSX would be needed. He also stressed that the timelines for the projects are approximate because a lot depends on the final plan and available funding. Â“Both of these (projects) are competitive for federal dollars,Â” he said. The study looked at a range of options, but Pringle said it became clear some were very expensive. Â“The prices kept going up and up,Â” Pringle said. Â“We were pricing ourselves out of a project.Â” Federal agencies like to see projects that cost about $10 a trip, he added. That influenced the decision to focus on the bus rapid transit as a first project, Pringle said. Â“Funding is what kills transit 99 percent of the time,Â” he said.

16A PUBLIX DELI HOT & SPICY CHICKEN WINGS It didnt take long for Keymo Pearson to realize Arielle Boone oozed potential when she joined his AAU track club last spring.Day 1, when I saw herI said, Hey, if this girl stays with the team, shes going to be great. My exact words were, She has the chance to be one of the best jumpers in Pasco County history, said Pearson, an assistant track coach at the Wesley Chapel-based Speed Starz Track Club. Turns out the coachs assessment is pretty spot on.Boone will compete this weekend in both the high jump and triple jump events in New Balance Indoor Nationals at the Armory Track and Field Center in New York City. A senior at Sunlake High School, Boone will join more than 3,500 of the countrys best track and field student-athletes, from more than 40 states and Canadian provinces each looking to run, hurdle, jump, throw and walk their way to titles and All-American honors in 48 boys and girls championship events. The event runs from March 9 through March 11. Boone qualified for the prestigious competition after posting elite qualifying marks in triple jump (39 2.5) and long jump (18 2.5) at recent AAU meets in Orlando and Birmingham, Alabama. She is believed to be just the second track and field athlete from Pasco County to ever compete in the national event. The other is former Pasco High star Alfreda Steele, who qualified in 2014. Steele now is a sprinter and jumper at the University of Miami. Boone isnt nervous about the big stage, despite squaring up alongside countless future Division I track starts and possibly some Olympians-in-the-making. Instead, shes poised to hold her own especially after going toe-to-toe with such athletes at AAU meets throughout the summer and fall. Im not worried about it. Im just there to compete and to get my marks, said Boone, who acknowledged she used to be intimidated, when she first began training for AAU meets in the spring and summer. A former gymnast, Boone joined her high school track team as a freshman at the behest of former Sunlake track coach Nick Carroll, now the head football coach at Zephyrhills High School. Coach was like, If youre one of my fastest girls, you have to run for me, OK? Like, he really pursued me. He wanted me to run track. And, I was like, You know what? My dads been telling me that for years, so Ill try it, and I ended up being pretty decent, so I stuck with it, Boone explained. Early on in her high school career, Boone mainly competed in sprints, such as the 100meter and 200-meter dash, and the 4x100 relay. It wasnt until last season she took field events seriously. The leap into those events especially the triple jump was bred out of pure curiosity. Said Boone, Triple jump seemed so complicated and just difficult, which it is. Its the hardest event track puts on your body. I just wanted to see how it works; I had no idea. Sunlake girls track coach Trey Burdick said Boones jumping numbers really took off toward the end the 2017 season. Something clicked at districts last year, Burdick said. All of sudden, Boone started hitting personal records of 2 feet, then 4 feet in the triple jump, and thats something you dont see, Burdick added. Boone firmly solidified herself at the Class 3A state championships as one of the states top jumpers after securing a ninthplace finish in the triple jump (then a 36 11.25), just one spot away from podium honors. She was also named named the Sunshine Athletic Conferences Girls Field Athlete of the Year. I was just like, Wow, I have been doing this event for not even six months, and I got this close. Next year Im going to wreck it. Thats what I really want to do, Boone said. After the season Boone joined Speed Starz to work one-on-one with Pearson, himself a former college track and field standout at Kansas-based Friends University and Independence Community College. He serves as an assistant with BB Roberts, who founded the AAU club in 2013. Pearson trained Boone on core strength, plyometric movements, and shoring up her bounding technique to make her an even better jumper. I saw that she was very explosive, and that was really what drew my attention, Pearson said. Just seeing the talent that she had without an offseason training, it just was like, Wow, I know the drills that Im going to give her is going to make her that much better as an athlete. I had to bound my way into becoming a really good triple-jumper, Boone said. Its a lot of training involved. Its an event that you cant play with it. You have to do a lot. After the national competition, Boone will go back to focusing on her final high school season. In addition to Sunlake High records in the triple jump (38 9.5) and high jump (17 9.75), Boone also claims school records in the 200 meters (26.32 seconds) which shes owned since her freshman year and as a leg on the 4x100 relay (49.55 seconds). Burdick noted Boone could soon own the school record in the 100 meters, once she gets the chance to run the event. High school track athletes are allowed to compete in a maximum of four events per meet. Shes probably the reason why were the favorite to win conference this year, Burdick said. Shes one of those athletes that if I could put her in six (events) Id put her in six. Shes a guaranteed first place in at least three of her events every meet, and most of the times its four. Boones recent emergence, meanwhile, has the caught the eyes of multiple Division I college track programs statewide. Shes picked up scholarship offers from South Florida, Central Florida, Florida Atlantic and Florida International universities. Boone said she plans to spend the next month visiting colleges before making a decision by the time the spring singing period begins on April 11. Whichever program Boone chooses, those coaches will be getting a dedicated and focused athlete. She catches on really fast thats whats great about her. She listens, shes disciplined, and she actually works on those things on her own so it makes it that much easier, Pearson explained. Motivations never been an issue for her, Burdick said. Shes always came to practice everyday and is just like strictly business, This is what we need to get done today and boom thats what shes doing. She knows (the) drills, she picks up on them, and she knows how to go out there and do it without me telling her, he added.
