Commissioners plan future road projectsPasco County commissioners favor a pair of road projects for segments of Curley Road and Prospect Road that are aimed at handling more traffic in a rapidly developing area of the county. The roadwork is part of a network of projects, by the county and the Florida Department of Transportation, to improve connectivity with State Road 52, Clinton Avenue, Curley and Prospect roads. In the next 20 to 30 years, traffic counts in the area are expected to triple, according to data from the road studies. Road widening, realigned designs, and a roundabout are on the drawing board. County commissioners reviewed two traffic studies and voted on recommended projects at their March 14 meeting in Dade City. An open house for the Prospect Road/Happy Hill Road Route Study was held in 2017 and was attended by more than 50 people. County commissioners considered four construction alternatives, as well as a nobuild option. One alternative shifted the road east; another went west; a third also went west, but with a roundabout. A fourth modified the westward option with the roundabout to avoid taking right of way from properties on the east side of Happy Hill Road. The County Commission approved the modified option, as recommended by HDR, the studys consultants. The adjustment to Happy Hill eliminated seven parcels from a potential list of right of way purchases. Consultants said that was possible only with a roundabout. An initial design with bicycle lanes striped off on the road shoulder and 5-foot sidewalks didnt please Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey.

There are also a number of Passover events scheduled, which are included in an accompanying story. Many churches offer Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday services, which is March 29 this year, as well as Good Friday services on March 30, Easter vigil services on March 31 and Easter services on April 1. This list is just a sampling of the events and services being offered in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area. Please check local church websites for more details.LUTZ All Saints Lutheran, 5315 Van Dyke Road, will have Maundy Thursday services at noon and 7:30 p.m.; Good Friday services at noon and 7:30 p.m.; Easter Vigil at 7:30 p.m.; and Easter services at 7 a.m. and 10 a.m., and an egg hunt at 9 a.m. Bay Hope Church, 17030 Lakeshore Road, will have a new Good Friday Experience, which invites families to walk with Jesus during his final hours. The experience lasts about 30 minutes, and is offered between noon and 2 p.m., and 5 and 7 p.m., on Good Friday. Services will be on March 31 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., and on Easter at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Crosspointe Church at 919 DebuelRegion offers Easter festivities FILE Gov. Rick Scott signed off on an $88.7 billion state budget for fiscal year 2019, and had a light touch with his veto pen. He cut about $64 million in contrast to the $410 million that was axed from the previous years $82.4 billion budget. Pasco County got most of the items on its wish list, including $15 million for the Overpass Road interchange at Interstate 75, and $4.3 million for the Thomas Varnadoe Forensic Center for Research and Education located at the Land O Lakes Detention Center. The city of Zephyrhills also will receive $1 million for the proposed Sarah Vande Berg Tennis Center, $5.9 million for upgrades at the municipal airport, and $750,000 for a road study. They are a great boost to us in improving our area, said Zephyrhills City Manager Steve Spina. Its very helpful. Were just really pleased. Overall, Pasco County did much better in 2019 than 2018. Several projects that were cut previously made it safely through the budget process this year.The new budget becomes effective July 1.The redesigned Overpass Road interchange is a high priority for Pasco as part of an evolving road network to handle growth along the Connected City corridor. The 7,800 acres within the corridors district includes new developments, such as Epperson and Mirada. But, more residential and commercial projects are expected to bring new residents, and a more urbanized landscape to northeastern Pasco. The forensic center is a joint venture with Pasco County, the Pasco County Sheriffs Office, Pasco-Hernando State College and the University of South Floridas Institute for Forensics and Applied Science. Construction on the multi-building campus is expected to begin in late summer or early fall, according to Chase Daniels, assistant executive director at the sheriffs office. Research already is underway at the Adam Kennedy Forensic Field, also known as a body farm. The city of Zephyrhills will receive funds for several projects, including the planned regional tennis center. A management company for the facility is in place. The approximately $3.4 million project is in planning stages. The citys city council was expected to approve a contract for the design at its meeting on March 26. The funds for the airport will help pay for extending the runway, building an internal road and expanding hangar capacity. A planning and engineering study will look at extending State Road 56 to U.S. 301, State Road 39 and Chancey Road. That would make it kind of a bypass, said Spina. The biggest loss in the governors veto items is the $4.7 million requested for the Morningside Drive extension in Dade City. Scott cut the funds, citing in a budget letter that the project didnt go through proper evaluation protocol. It was one of a handful of road projects rejected for the same reason. Officials with Bayfront Health Dade City are eager to see the extension built. Funding hasnt been available through Dade Citys budget, so state funding was sought. The project would link U.S. 301 to King Fort Road, where the hospital is located. Hospital officials have said the extension would improve access to the hospitals campus. State Rep. Danny Burgess said funding would be requested again for fiscal year 2020. Pasco projects win big in 2019 state budget

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhen a crowd gathered in January to celebrate the dedication of the Watson Park Community Garden in Dade City, there was a man standing quietly in the background — as the festivities progressed. That man, Brightman Logan, played a vital role in providing the support to help make the garden happen, Whitney C. Elmore, who leads the Pasco County Extension Office, told the crowd — characterizing him as an “unsung hero.” As it turns out, Logan helped financially, but he also has given his time to help the Pasco County Extension Office pursue its plans to nurture the growth of community gardening across the county. Logan thinks it’s important work, and he’s glad to join the University of Florida, the city of Dade City, Pasco County Schools, master gardeners and other volunteers in a quest to make it easier for people across the county to grow their own food. “It’s really so easy, once you understand it,” said Logan, who has had affinity for the outdoors since he was a child. Although he grew up in South Tampa, his family had a farm in Pasco County, and he always enjoyed being there. “My family is from an agricultural background, forestry and things. My grandfather was in naval stores — (the) turpentine and pitch business.An ‘unsung hero’ seeks to help others to grow tasty food“I grew up listening to his stories about the woods, that’s really what got me to the feel of it,” he said. He went on to get a degree in biology and then ended up creating his own native plant nursery, and then an organic vegetable farm. His native plant business flourished for years. “We did all kinds of neat projects. We did work all over the state. We worked with Disney. We worked throughout the Southeast,” he said. “When the economy went down in 2008, it just took us out. It went from great to just nothing,” he said, noting he did what he could to hang on, but ultimately had to cease operations. Next, he branched into other things. “We actually had an organic vegetable farm up here, called Magnolia Organics, and we ran that for about four years, 2008-2012,” he said. “We grew great food. It was so awesome. “We would bring classes out. These kids were just blown away that you would actually just pull a carrot out of the ground. They just thought you went to Publix, where it was wrapped up, and you bought it there,” he said. But, there just wasn’t enough buy-in to keep the organic farm going, he said. “We were kind of ahead of the curve,” he said. So, even though he’s shifted into different directions, he wants to share his knowledge with others. “There are people starving out there. It’s so easy to grow your own food. We need to start teaching people and reaching out to people, and show them what they can do,” Logan said. He’s been working with Elmore to see how he can help to create momentum for community gardens across Pasco County. By supplying what’s needed to establish a garden plot and by teaching people how to tend to their plots, the idea can catch on and take hold, Logan said. “You want everybody involved,” he said. ““When you have all of these people, you have this synergy.” By getting youths involved, he said, “you can have a lifelong impact.” “I’ve been so blessed in my life, I want to try to help other people,” said Logan, who is married to Nan, and they have two grown children, Brightman Logan Jr., and Martha Jean Logan. They also have two granddaughters. B.C. MANIONBrightman Logan says its so easy to grow delicious food, once someone understands the basics. Hes been instrumental in helping the Pasco County Extension Office in its quest to introduce more community gardens in Pasco County.


By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comTwenty years after he hiked the Appalachian Trail, Jeff Alt’s expedition lives on. Alt hiked an average of 17 miles a day, for nearly five months in 1998, to walk 2,160 miles, from Springer Mountain, in Georgia, to Mount Kadahdin, in Maine. Hiking the Appalachian Trail was not only a personal goal but also a way to support people with developmental disabilities, including Alt’s brother, Aaron, who has cerebral palsy. Because of that commitment, as fellow hikers in his group quit, Alt persevered. He made a trek of an estimated 5 million steps, overcoming everything from extreme weather and scary wildlife encounters, to persistent aches and pains. The achievement since inspired the Sunshine 5K, Walk, Run and Roll which just celebrated its 20th annual event in Greenville, Ohio, and has raised more than $500,000 for people with developmental disabilities. It benefits the Ohio-based Sunshine Communities, which supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as they live, work and play on their terms. It’s also where Alt’s disabled brother lives. Alt will be in town this week to share stories and sign the 20th anniversary edition of his best-selling memoir, “A Walk for Sunshine,” on March 29 at 7 p.m., at Barnes & Noble Carrollwood,11802 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa. The renowned hiker shared a few of those stories and anecdotes from his long, arduous 147-day journey in a recent interview with The Laker/Lutz News. Born, raised and still living in Ohio with his wife and two children, Alt has several familial ties to the Lutz and Carrollwood area. These family members served as his support system during the adventure. His brother, Larry Alt, of Lutz, greeted him at the beginning and end of the Appalachian Trail. His sister Stephanie Pitts, of Lutz, served as his “unofficial, official public relations person,” updating friends, relatives and media throughout the journey. Her husband, Dan Pitts, of Lutz, joined Alt in hiking the final leg of the Appalachian Trail. And, his stepfather, Ron Almendinger, of Northdale, often shipped supply boxes to Alt on the trail. Each gesture kept him motivated and boosted morale, Alt said. “Everybody played a role…so I could focus on the journey. They were like my cheerleading squad,” Alt said. He recalled his adventure getting off to a shaky start. On the very first day, Alt had to wrap his feet in duct tape, after several blisters formed on both feet, as a result of placing his boot orthotics on the wrong feet. “One blister is extremely painful,” he said. “But, this was excruciating.” Alt gave himself the self-deprecating nickname “Wrongfoot” to bring a bit of levity to his own error. “I just reminded myself that I just needed to laugh it off,” he said. The next day, Alt was close and personal with a skunk on top of his sleeping bag. Luckily, he was able to shoo it away without getting sprayed. That wasn’t the only “hair-raising” encounter with Mother Nature. He was charged by a mama bear in Maine, before it abruptly dashed off into the woods with a pair of baby cubs. Another stress-inducing — and painful — moment came while traversing the Great Smoky Mountains. That’s where Alt suffered a bad ankle sprain in the middle a 12-foot snowdrift, while trying to balance his 55pound backpack on one leg. “I thought at that moment, ‘My journey just ended.’ That was the only time that I didn’t think I was going to make it,” Alt said. He took a few days off, to reduce the swelling, then resumed his journey. Every day was painful, Alt said, joking that ibuprofen is referred to as as ‘Vitamin I’ in the hiker community. “Literally, when you took your pack off at the end of the day, your body would say, ‘What did you just do to me? You’re going to feel this all night,’” Alt said.COLD AND HUNGRYThe majority of fellow hikers that year quit because of frigid temperatures, which sometimes dropped to 20 below zero. “It was so cold, at one point, if you took your boots off at night and didn’t put them in your sleeping bag, they would freeze in the position your foot was before you took it off, and then the leather would cut your feet open because it was still frozen in the morning,” Alt said. He had never-ending food cravings. “Your appetite quadruples,” Alt said. “I could eat a half gallon of ice cream as a March 28, 20183A from the staff at HairPor t BLESSED EAS T A VE V R EJ O I C E AND HA he i s ri s T ER en 8 139 2346 R (BEHIND WENDYS) 8 13-909-87 1 € 9 09-1432 L a k O Land € R aden D r 1 0 k e s snack. I could eat a whole pizza and then go eat dinner.” Even so, he lost 30 pounds, which he refers to as “the Appalachian Diet Plan.” He also has many positive experiences on his trek. He marveled at the friendliness and kindness of people he met along the trail. Complete strangers would invite him into their homes, and would offer something to eat and drink, and the use of their shower. “It left a very warm feeling in my heart,” he said. Along the way, he crossed paths with military folks, recent college graduates, a wealthy stock trader, to name a few. He met a man who had abruptly quit his job to hike, and a fair number of homeless people, too. “You meet all kinds of people. It’s America, really,” he said. He also observed there was something to appreciate about each of the 14 states he walked through, including breathtaking views and varying geology. Even after walking 5 million steps, Alt said the expedition wasn’t truly complete until he could share the news with his brother Aaron, back in Ohio. His brother doesn’t speak, but he does communicate through gestures and smiles. Seeing him, Alt said, ended his journey — “knowing that he understood and smiled.” SUBSCRIPTIONS: The Laker/Lutz News is a free newspaper distributed to 44,800 homes and businesses in Pasco and Hillsborough counties.

Thats when manatees leave their winter refuges and travel along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, and through inland waters. For boaters, it is the time to be especially vigilant to avoid colliding with these large aquatic mammals. From April 1 through Nov. 15, seasonal manatee zones require boaters to slow down in certain areas to prevent manatees from being struck by motorboats or personal watercrafts. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions enforcements officers will be on patrol in state waters to remind boaters of the seasonal manatee speed zones and take enforcement actions when deemed necessary. Underwater manatees can be difficult to detect, so operators of boats and personal watercrafts can help by following these tips from the FWCs Manatee Management Program: Wear polarized sunglasses to help spot manatees. Look for large circles in the water, also known as manatee footprints, indicating the presence of a manatee below. Look for a snout sticking up out of the water. Follow posted manatee zones while boating. Report an injured, distressed, sick or dead manatee to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at (888) 404-3922. Manatee zones and maps are available at, by selecting Protection Zones for links to the county maps.Close encounters with manatees on the rise FILE STEFANIE BURLINGAME

REESES TAMPA BAY HEARING AID HOSPITAL…MORE THAN 100 HEARING AIDS REPAIRED AND SERVICED EACH MONTH! By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comParents dropped by information booths to learn about all sorts of summer options for their kids at the second annual Family Friendly Summer Camp Expo on March 24. While parents found out more about potential summer camps and activities for their kids, the kids took advantage of the event, too. Children could get an Easter egg from the Easter bunny, pick up treats at various booths, or try their hand at games or crafts, as they made their way around the expo. Kids seemed to be having fun, jumping around in a bounce house, bopping around inside giant plastic balls, going for a ride down an inflatable slide or playing in a ball pit. There was also a mobile gaming van that seemed to be attracting a sizable share of attention. Glenn Paulsen was there, too, making balloons in all sorts of shapes, fulfilling requests, as families entered the expo, at Florida Hospital Center Ice, 3173 Cypress Ridge Blvd., in Wesley Chapel. Parents attending the event said they found it useful. Linda Colozza, who lives in New Tampa, was there with her three children, 6-yearold Christian, 8-year-old Emma and 10-year-old Nicolas. “I really need to find a camp. It’s the first year that I’m working. I’ve always been a stay-at-home mom,” Colozza said. She came to the expo because it seemed like a convenient way to find out about a lot of possible options. “I find this is a great tool for parents who need to find the information, in one place,” Colozza said. “Otherwise, I’d be on the computer all day trying to find out about location, pricing (of summer camps).” Monica Dromgoole, of Wesley Chapel, was there with her 8-year-old son, Slade. She said her son has attended summer camp before, but she wanted to branch out and learn about other potential options. Miriam Cook, founder of Family Friendly Tampa Bay, organized the expo. She said the goal was to give parents a way to get the information they need to make the best decisions for their families, while also giving exhibitors a chance to share information about their services. Cook estimated there were about 1,500 people at the event, and she said she received lots of positive feedback, both from parents and from exhibitors. B.C. MANIONLinda Colozza, who lives in New Tampa, was at the expo with her three children, 6-year-old Christian, 8-year-old Emma and 10-year-old Nicolas. She liked the idea of being able to pick up lots of information in just one place.Families find out about options at Summer Camp Expo

For the past two years, she has been COO at Fawcett Hospital.PILOT PROGRAMThe Crisis Center of Tampa Bay has been awarded a $285,000 grant from the Florida Blue Foundation to launch an innovative new community paramedicine program in Hillsborough County. The program will focus on frequent users of local EMS and hospital emergency room services by connecting patients to medical and mental health resources. Many of these individuals have both medical and behavioral health needs that require a specialized form of nonemergency care. The pilot program is designed to holistically care for the medical, behavioral and social needs of these patients. Through its TransCare Medical Transportation division, the Crisis Center will have two community care coordinators, who are paramedics, dedicated to patients after they are discharged from the emergency room due to both a physical and behavioral health need. The coordinators will work with emergency room staff or insurers to identify which patients may benefit most from additional one-on-one assistance. The Crisis Center, a nonprofit agency, offers a range of programs designed to meet community needs, including: Gateway Contact Center (2-1-1: suicide prevention, crisis counseling, and information and referral services) Corbett Trauma Center (trauma counseling and sexual assault survivor services) TransCare (9-1-1 emergency and mental health ambulance services, medical van transportation)For information, visit 8A Health & Wellness COURTESY OF POLLY HONOR Money for Moffitt W OPE N NO N il C e n i ent l vn o Co C A 24/7 E m u o s y ec sour e all the r o crs easy e fe ER 24/7 off lM dD ll t lmar a Wa o t t nex le Ma a ted o n D a ly l o c t W ults and Kids d A y Roo m genc m er of a se r e e carr acut o fo g emer o ss t ec enient ac vn o needf H b y wy ry abr y Hw ro m fe and e nc y genc d in Emery and ra X u nd p ts patients es than an ic v r r ious illness or with e y car g enc d. vlBno t re t n n n o n Co C C ifications trec experienc e y car genc and nurses with emer eraC ified in Emer tre d C icians Boar sy ph y d b e ER 24/7 is staff. vices ser y Laborator an, Ultrasound c S T C e e and has on sit via ambulanc pts patients ec e ER also ac ic v this full-ser r, nt e c e gent car ur y ser genc ed emer advanc e iding mor vor P .y injur:y init rT er of nt e dical C e ugh M o thr ifications treC National er T the field quicker o turn t er o sponders t e first r sw Allo capabilities elemedicine Te T ea ption ar ecer pediatric parate e S onmentviren viting clinical rm and in a W W ment t y depar gencemer a traditional hospital ent with onsist c e of car el es and lev vic Same ser r wait times et Shor rk o school or w home o enient access t vnoC ician sy a ph yb be seen S Y AY WA LW o Yo Y u will AL W A nefits eBConnerton 589 589 d d lv d B B l Hwy inity rT e Rd 54 t e Rd 54 Sta inity r Medical Center of T Sta Hwy R B Little Road w a y La n k w k Suncoast Pa Suncoast Pa Odessa rk 41 4 f ff o to o ut u Cu C n en re n hr h Eh E h r e C u t E n d O Lakes y y wy w kw k P r k P w f unn Hwy d d lv lv B l B y y t y t y in n i in r i r i r T T T r Gunn in it it tz E uL 1430 Dal e Lake Fern Gunn unn Hwy B r y y wy w Hw y y ry r H br b ab a Ma M e e le l al a br D d d Rd n n R rn r er er Fe F e e k a k L z L tz u t L t L F rn e r Da D a l M a R b b H e om | 813-953-3900 E R.c tz, FL 33 u y | L w y H br a e M Lutz r w r r er ie li l ll o l C l l i 548 C e | H CG H O RM O NE S V V Y 20 POUNDS! 20POUNDS!

For more information, visit is a critical game-changer for the Dade City community, said Burgess in a text message to The Laker/Lutz News. Other Pasco County projects included in the 2019 budget are: $1 million for a planning and engineering study for the U.S. 301/U.S. 98/Clinton Avenue intersection realignment. The goal is to improve east-west traffic from I-75 to the west and Interstate 4 to the south. $250,000 for the Veterans Alternative which aids veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury $50,000 for AmSkills, a program that aids high school students, adults, and veterans seeking manufacturing jobs She asked consultants to consider a multi-use trail, on at least one side of the road, and to think about a link with the proposed Orange Belt trail. The bicycle lanes would be insufficient, she said. That doesnt work for our families, Starkey said. Theyre just not going to put their kids on the road. By 2041, traffic is expected to triple to about 24,000 vehicles per day, according to the study. County commissioners also looked at two alternatives recommended in the Curley Road North Route Study. The study was initially done in 2005, but was updated last year by URS Corporation Southern. It looked at Curley Road, from north of Wells Road to north of a realignment of State Road 52. One alternative widened Curley Road to four lanes by acquiring right of way on both sides of the road, but generally follows the existing route. The second took a major share of right of way from the east side of Curley Road, from Wells Road to Kiefer Road. From there to McCabe Road, right of way would come from both sides of Curley, with the four-lane segment transitioning to two lanes north of McCabe Road. Recommendations also were made on traffic signals versus a roundabout where Curley Road, Prospect Road and Mirada Boulevard meet. Mirada Road is a new road that is part of the master-planned community of Mirada, which is within the Connected City corridor. More than 60 area residents attended an open house in 2017 to look at maps, and offer public comment. County commissioners opted for the second alternative, and the roundabout. The holiday of Pesach, or Passover, is an eight-day festival celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. This year, it runs from March 30 to April 7. Passover commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. Following its rituals allows the Jewish community to relive and experience the freedom of their ancestors.Local gatherings are planned to celebrate Passover WHERE:Chabad at Wiregrass, 2124 Ashley Oaks Circle in Wesley ChapelWHAT:Community Seder, complete with gourmet Passover cuisine, wine and handmade Shemurah Matzo, while reliving the exodus and discovering the eternal message of the Pesach.WHEN: March 30 at 8:15 p.m.COST: Suggested donation of $30 per person, $100 per family, or $250 per sponsorINFO: Call (813) 642-3244, or visit Kol Ami, 3919 Moran Road, TampaWHAT:Erev Pesah I Services/Shabbat Services; Shabbat Candle LightingWHEN:March 30 at 6:30 p.m.INFO:Call (813) 962-6338, or email Mekor Shalom, 14005A N.

12A March 28, 2018 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports By Kevin Weisskevinweiss@lakerlutznews.comIn east and central Pasco County, softball programs such as Academy at the Lakes, Land O’ Lakes, and Sunlake have garnered much of the attention of late. And, rightly so. There’s just a single loss combined among the three schools—Sunlake suffered its lone loss to Land O’ Lakes on March 2— and each team ranks among the state’s top 20 or so softball programs. But, there’s another local program on the rise — quickly proving itself as a force in the Tampa Bay region. The Cypress Creek Middle High Coyotes sit at 9-4 overall and 6-2 in district play. The team entered spring break on a fourgame winning streak. Instant success hasn’t come without adversity, however. A first-year program with no seniors, the Coyotes were forced to play much of their pre-spring break schedule on the road because the team’s new softball field wasn’t game-ready until a week ago. Ongoing maintenance also prevented the upstart Coyotes from participating in fall practices together; instead many were forced to train with their respective travel squads up through January, until they were able to practice with Coyotes coaches. The team also suffered an unexpected depth setback before the season began, forcing a freshman into action and reducing the varsity roster to just 10 regulars. Outfielder Cassidy Middleton, a .308 hitter as a sophomore last season at Wesley Chapel High School, tore her ACL while playing on the Cypress Creek girls basketball team. She’s been replaced in the lineup by Emma Coon, who’s batting .381 through 46 plate appearances as the team’s lone freshman. Challenges aside, Cypress Creek sits just a game back of Nature Coast Tech for second place in the District 7-5A standings; each are chasing division-leading Hernando High (102 overall, 8-0 districts). First-year head coach Mike Peterson credited the group’s effort, teamwork, and perseverance for contributing to the team’s strong start. “They’re working hard in practice, knowing it’s not where we start, it’s where we end. They’re all on the same page. There’s nothing but fight in the girls, which is nice,” Peterson said. Despite its thin roster, Cypress Creek is heavy on talent. Opponents facing them quickly discover that the Coyotes feature some of the hottest bats in the region. The team is batting a combined .403 and averaging about 10 runs per game. The most potent of the bunch is junior catcher Neely Peterson, the head coach’s daughter and one of the team’s many transfers from Wesley Chapel. A Colorado State University commit, Peterson sports a whopping .636 average with four home runs, 10 doubles and 29 RBIs — all team highs. Her batting average is second in all of Pasco, trailing only River Ridge’s Hailey Smith (.708). The standout catcher said she’s become more comfortable and relaxed at the plate, after batting .443 as a sophomore and .290 as a freshman, respectively.BECOMING MORE RELAXED, AT THE PLATE“As I grow older, the less pressure I put on myself the better that I’ll do, because I know that my freshman year, I was really tense to like, ‘I need to make a statement,’ but now I just let my play speak for me,” she said. Other Coyotes batting over .400 include sophomore first baseman Anna Margetis (.485) and junior infielders Payton Hudson (.471) and Jasmine Jackson (.429). Juniors Jordan Rosenberg (.382) and Ashley Nickisher (.333, two home runs) join Coon as players hitting above .300. That menacing offensive skill has helped gain early, sizable leads in road games, putting stress on home teams by making them play catch-up the rest of the way. Employing that score early-score often strategy, the team has come to embrace road games, Neely Peterson said. “We almost didn’t like playing at home because when you’re on the road you get to hit first so we like putting up those runs, so we kind of got acclimated to playing on the road. But, we like playing here (at home), obviously,” Neely Peterson said. A prime example came in a recent 16-0 road victory against Fivay High School. The Coyotes scored 10 runs in the first inning and six in the second to mercy rule the host Falcons in three innings. “When you’re able to score the first runs in the first inning you get that confidence of, ‘Oh, we’ve got this,’ whereas, at home, you have to hold them first and then go,” Nickisher said. “Playing games on the road, you really have to get your mind set because you’re going into their house. And, you want to show what you have,” Margetis said. Cypress Creek’s pitching—somewhat of a question mark entering the season—has also proven resourceful. Junior Avery Lee—a Wiregrass Ranch High transfer—has a 2.47 ERA and 25 strikeouts in 68 innings pitched. “We have a solid foundation. Avery’s come in and has given us solid innings, solid outings, worked on her mental toughness; she’s been terrific,” Mike Peterson said. STICKING TOGETHER IS KEY TO SUCCESSWhile the team prides itself on strong hitting and crafty pitching, the Coyotes head coach stressed improvements must be made on the defensive end in order to hang against better competition. The team has committed 23 errors this season. “I have no doubt that we can hit with any team. It’s just we get a couple of mental lapses in the field that have hurt us in a couple of games. We clean that up, we’ll be fine,” Mike Peterson explained. “I tell them, ‘There’s nothing you guys can’t accomplish if you stick together as a team, play as a team, ” he added. With their cohesiveness and unwavering attitude, players are confident the team can make some noise come playoff time in late April. Many know the feeling because they were members of last year’s Wesley Chapel varsity squad that experienced its first winning season and playoff appearance in program history. That team went 19-7 and advanced to the regional semifinals. “We work together and we trust each other…and we’re just able to work together and have each other’s back,” Nickisher said, acknowledging she was initially upset to leave Wesley Chapel. “Everyone on this team wants to help each other, no matter if we’re doing good or not,” she added.“I think we’re having a lot of fun with it, and that’s a big part,” Neely Peterson said. “I think that our mindset really is to win and, if we don’t, we’ll make it difficult for the other team to beat us. I think we’re all really competitive in the sense that we really want to win. We’ve had some tough losses, but we know that we’re going to play them again — teams like Hernando and Nature Coast — so we get a second chance so that’s good.”Margetis added: “These games—they matter—but when districts come around, I feel like we’ll dig deep and find out what we really have to do to beat the opponents.” School pride also is at stake. Other boys and girls sports programs at Cypress Creek have mainly struggled in their first year, but the softball team is bucking that trend. “It’s just wanting to be the team…that everybody can look to and say, ‘Hey, they’re doing something right.’” Neely Peterson said.

Lynn is a practice manager for My Pediatrics, sponsor of the Kids Zone. By Christine HoltzmanSpecial to The Laker/Lutz NewsFestival-goers were dancing, relaxing and generally just enjoying a day of continuous entertainment at the third annual Land O’ Lakes Music Festival, held March 24 at Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park. Some there, including April Genter, of Land O’ Lakes, were obviously having a good time — grooving to tunes performed by a band called the Actual Bank Robbers. Four-year-old Morgan Keith, of Lutz, was having a ball — while sailing down the large bouncy slide. The little girl was also excited about Stonegrey’s appearance at the festival because she considers lead guitarist Tristan to be her ‘boyfriend.’ Singer Carmen Harrell entertained the crowd by belting out a high-octane version of Ike and Tina Turner’s Proud Mary, as Marlon Boone jammed on the saxophone. There were a lot of people there to support friends, or simply revel in a sunny Saturday afternoon, while supporting a local event. This year’s festival was the first to utilize the new Heritage Park Stage, a venue which took years of advocacy, and a considerable number of partnerships among governments, local businesses and community volunteers to achieve. The slate of entertainers included Stonegrey, Solar Exposure, City Groove, Fred Chandler, Actual Bank Robbers, Trigger City Trio and Sowflo. While the live music played nonstop, festival-goers also could check out the beer and wine tent, and food trucks, do some shopping to find out more about the goods and services offered by local businesses. Children could have fun, too, at the Kids’ Zone, sponsored by My Pediatrics, which offered balloon animals, games, a bouncy house and inflatable slide. Admission was free to the event, which was hosted by the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce and was presented by Ierna’s Heating & Cooling. Parking was $10, with proceeds benefitting local schools.—B.C.
