TheyÂ’re on a mission to help victims of the commercial sex industry and human trafficking. Abo ut 50 people turned out for the march.By Diane KortusPublisherThe Laker/Lutz News is once again honoring our local high school graduates by publishing their names in todayÂ’s newspaper. Beginning on page 7A, we are recognizing more than 3,500 students from the 11 high schools in our distribution area. This is the 11th consecutive year weÂ’ve published this edition, a popular keepsake for the families we serve. It is an honor to acknowledge our communityÂ’s young people who have worked so hard to achieve this goal. Graduating from high school is an accomplishment that sets our kids on a path to success as they enter adulthood, and one that is critical to their future. We read and hear much today about how our youths are attached to their digital devices and out-of-touch with anything that does not directly involve them. But, I believe that perception is greatly exaggerated, and that todayÂ’s teens are no different in their interests, worries and aspirations than those of other generations. Graduating from high school has always required commitment and perseverance. And, like the classes before them, the Class of 2018 consists of good kids who focused on their studies, listened to their teachers and parents, and worked hard to complete the many requirements needed for graduation. They dream, as other graduates before them Â— to live a fulfilling life and help make the world a better place. High school graduation is also a testimony to parents, who kept their child focused on achieving this important goal. It was their support, encouragement and confidence in their son or daughter that kept their student going when they didn't want to do their homework or go to school and, in some cases, had even considered dropping out. Over the next few weeks, students will proudly walk across the stage and accept their diplomas as their parents watch from PUBLISHERÂ’S NOTE Honoring our local graduates See HONORING, page19A By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comPasco County is in a rapidly growing region, so more growth is expected, a national real estate expert said last week at an event organized by the Central Pasco Association of Realtors. Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president of research for the National Association of Realtors, made his first visit to Pasco County, to address more than 150 real estate professionals gathered at Pasco-Hernando State CollegeÂ’s Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel. Yun anticipates moderate growth in national home sales, forecasting 3 percent to 4 percent in most parts of the country, and slightly greater increases in Florida. There are a number of factors contributing to FloridaÂ’s strong real estate market, and Pasco County, in particular, Yun said. Florida continues to attract foreign investors, Yun said. Canadians come to the Sunshine state to escape the cold. British are very dominant in purchasing property in Orlando. Germans like areas such as Fort Myers and Naples. And, Latin Americans are attracted to the Miami area. Â“Many Puerto Rican residents are seeking better opportunities here in Florida,Â” he added. Â“Greater Tampa, including Pasco, has not had a large global exposure, but you are getting more of it,Â” Yun said. He predicts Florida will continue to see an acceleration in population growth, especially in light of recent changes to the tax code. Â“The end result, it is an additional tax burden for people living in the New England states, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York,Â” he said. Â“People will be seeking: Â‘How do I lessen some of the burden?Â’ One way to do that is coming to Florida,Â” Yun said. He also noted that the current housing recovery is on healthy footing. The nation certainly doesnÂ’t want what happened in 2005, when the housing market was hot: Â“Anyone with a heartbeat was somehow able to get a mortgage and buy a home,Â” he said. Â“IÂ’m fairly confident that this increase will not lead to another decline because the fundamental backdrop is different. WeÂ’re in a job-creating environment,Â” he said. And, perhaps most importantly, underwriting standards are tough. Much higher credit scores are required to get a mortgage, he said, noting that, if anything, underwriting standards may be too stringent, especially for people who are self-employed.Continued growth expected for PascoÂ’s housing market, expert says B.C. MANIONMore residential construction activity is needed to boost housing inventory Â— which will moderate prices and attract more potential buyers into the market, said Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president of research for the National Association of Realtors.By Kathy SteeleKsteele@lakerlutznews.comDespite opposition from area residents, a proposed solar farm of Blanton Road in northeast Pasco County is a step closer to approval. On May 10 Pasco CountyÂ’s Development Review Committee has recommended approval of an amended ordinance that opens the way for the projectÂ’s development. Committee members agreed with the countyÂ’s planning department that the solar farm, located on agricultural land, would be consistent with PascoÂ’s land development code. PascoÂ’s Planning Commission approved the project in April, in a 6-3 vote. The matter now goes before the Pasco County Commission for a public hearing in New Port Richey, set for May 22. The final vote on the issue is set for June 5 in Dade City. Tampa Electric is proposing to install about 464,000 photovoltaic solar panels on about 350 acres, off Blanton Road and Frazee Hill. The project is known as Mountain View Solar. About a dozen people objected to the project during public comment at the development review committeeÂ’s May 10 hearing. They cited the loss of scenic views in an area known for rolling hills and open spaces. They called for additional county study and workshops to give residents an opportunity for input regarding how and where solar farms should be approved.See SOLAR, page19A Solar farm approval recommended See HOUSING, page19A

Gift Certificates Availableonly $75 +up JUNE BRIDES, BRAIDS & UP-DOSON-SITE WEDDINGS HAIR AVAILABLE Conceptual drawings have been done for the Christopher N. Chiles Aquatic Center in Land O Lakes that could become a magnet for swimming tournaments, and would provide a wide range of services for swimmers of all ages and abilities. It would cost about $8 million for the facility, without a complete roof system, said Scott Sutek, executive director for the envisioned aquatic center. Backers would prefer a building with an indoor pool, but that would cost between $12 million and $15 million, Sutek said. Efforts began last July to develop a plan for the aquatics center, Sutek said. The swimming facility at the Land O Lakes Recreation Complex, off Collier Parkway, is operating at maximum capacity, prompting the need for a larger facility, Sutek said. Five teams train at the current pool, and the teams from Sunlake and Land O Lakes high schools compete there. Lorin Macdonald, the facilitys head coach, said the new center ideally would have eight 50-meter lanes that can be transferred over to 20 to 22 short-course lanes. The center would be able to accommodate longand short-course competitions, and would give Olympic hopefuls a good place to train, Macdonald said. The facility also would be able to accommodate hundreds of additional swimmers, Sutek said. It also would be able to offer water aerobics, synchronized swimming, scuba lessons and training programs for lifeguards, law enforcement officers and public safety, military and CPR. Practitioners could write prescriptions for aquatic therapy, Sutek said, because the center would have an aquatics therapy room, with a therapy pool. The new facility also would make it possible to attract competitions, Sutek said. Weve already gotten interest in having events here local, state and semi-regional events. We have the capacity to hold up to the Pro Series events. So, well have local high school and local club swim events that host anywhere from 300 to 1,200 swimmers, Sutek said. Local teams currently travel to meets in Largo, South Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Fort Myers, Orlando and Stuart, Macdonald said. Plans call for building the facility on land donated by Academy at the Lakes, an independent private school. Academy at the Lakes operates two campuses on Collier Parkway in Land O Lakes, but plans to expand to a third location, off Twenty Mile Level Road, off State Road 54. The aquatics center would become part of that campus, on land the school purchased from the MacManus family. The high school from Academy at the Lakes will be using the new facility. Promoters are ready to get started on pursuing the swimming complex, as soon as they raise the necessary funds, said Sutek, who is serving as the centers executive director on a strictly volunteer basis. When were at 50 percent (funding), well go through with the design, and start talking about construction budgets and times, so that were ahead of the ballgame when 100 percent costs come in, Sutek said. With this facility, the public will have more use of the pool, all of the time, Sutek said. The facility also would create some job opportunities for lifeguards, coaches and operations staff, Sutek said. The aquatics center will be a nonprofit operation, Sutek said. We will focus on a minimum of two charitable organizations right now. One is the Make-A-Splash. The other is the Special Olympics. Make-A-Splash is part of USA Swimming Foundation. The aquatics center would like to partner with them, to remove the economic barrier that sometimes prevents children from learning how to swim, Macdonald said. A lot of the kids who end up being drowning victims, end up being drowning victims because they come from families who cant afford swim lessons. Its important to us that we start getting the entire community involved in swim lessons, so that everybody can swim and help reduce that drowning rate, she said. We would also give scholarships to kids to participate on our swim teams and to do team travel, she added. Macdonald sees a larger facility as a way to reach more people in the community. We want to make sure they have someplace safe where they can come and swim, somewhere where they have programs that are geared toward making sure the community is water safe, she said. The new facility also would make it possible to attract world-class competitions, Sutek said. Swim coach Robin Hilgenberg is a Special Olympics swimming coach. We want to be able to train more Special Olympics kids of all ages, instead of the handful we have, Sutek said. We would love to host a Special Olympics swim meet, of large magnitude, here in this area. Organizers have shared their plans to the Pasco Economic Development Council and received support, Sutek said. A discussion with Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore also was positive, he added. Next, proponents will be making the rounds to the countys municipalities and local civic organizations to talk about their vision.Plans call for aquatics center in Land O Lakes COURTESY OF SCOTT SUTEKEven dropping the cost from more than half a billion to $250 million, an underpass at U.S. 41 and State Road 54 would be too pricey. Members of the Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization have opted not to add the underpass also called a tunnel to a list of recommended road designs to ease traffic congestion at U.S. 41 and State Road 54. Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore said its worth looking at everything. But, the tunnel option is cost prohibitive. Finding a solution is important because the intersection is one of Pascos busiest with about 100,000 vehicles passing through daily. Members of Pasco Countys Metropolitan Planning Organization in April got sticker shock from a study that estimated the underpass would cost $550 million. Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano then persuaded the MPO board to delay its decision for more research. He questioned the initial costs, suggesting that MPO staff search for existing, and shorter, underpasses in other municipalities. I dont think they found what I was looking for, Mariano said. But, he added: I feel better with these numbers as far as being realistic. The initial study considered an underpass of 6,000 linear feet. The new data looked at costs for an underpass of 2,500 linear feet. Building the tunnel would have used a technique known as cut and cover. This involves building a deep trench, with walls, and then covering over that. Less expensive options for dealing with traffic at U.S. 41 and State Road 54 called for elevated lanes at the intersection. The most expensive of two alternatives presented to the MPO board cost about $159 million, including about $50 million for right of way purchases. With the underpass eliminated, MPO board members approved four alternatives, including a no build solution, recommended by a volunteer task force. The recommended alternatives include a flyover, express and toll lanes, an at-grade level system of parallel roads, and dedicated bus lanes. Those recommendations came from the task force, after about two years of sifting through data and road designs. The work of the task force is part of a three-phase study of the State Road 54 and State Road 56 corridor, from Bruce B. Downs Boulevard on the east to U.S. 19 on the west. Most recently, the task force was asked to focus on two intersections: Little Road and State Road 54 in New Port Richey, and U.S. 41 and State Road 54 in Land O Lakes. For U.S. 41 and State Road 54, task force members whittled 18 alternatives, and no build, down to the four options approved by the MPO. The next step is for the Florida Department of Transportation to dig deeper into the details, and costs of the recommended projects. That could take a year, according to MPO staff members. Public comment also will be sought, but a time schedule hasnt been determined yet. Cost rules out U.S. 41 underpass

She underwent stem cell transplant, using her own stem cells. It was probably 85 percent satisfactory, for the remission, she said. She remains on a chemotherapy maintenance program, which does have side effects, she said. Sometimes theyre acute. Sometimes, theyre not so bad, she said. The side effects include rash and itchiness, nausea, leg cramps and neuropathy. Shes now a four-year survivor of multiple myeloma, a white blood cell cancer that is commonly found in the bone marrow. Having this disease is work to try to keep yourself stable, to keep yourself on top of all of the new things coming out, drugs, therapies, whos the best doctor to go to, Camille said. I have a primary care physician. I have a primary oncologist, and then I have a myeloma specialist, and thats what is recommended, she said. The myeloma patient journey is very difficult and can be quite horrific at times, she said, noting, because she has experienced the challenges, she and her husband, Jim, decided to set up a support group to help others fighting the battle. Ive seen other patients, what they went through, and I felt it was time for me to give back, contribute, Camille explained. The group meets on the third Saturday of the month at the Wilsons home, 6520 Yellowhammer Ave., in Tampa. The meetings are in the dance studio, Floortime Studio, which is attached to the house.Meetings generally feature a guest speaker, who addresses issues, such as latest medications, resources that are available and medical questions. Patients, caregivers, family and friends are welcome and there is generally a free lunch, provided by pharmaceutical partners, Camille Wilson said.The group is affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation, and the couple travels each year to an annual meeting where they are brought up to speed on the latest information about the disease, and spend time with other support group leaders, sharing what theyve learned along the way. With almost every meeting (at their home), we do go around the group and each person gets a chance to speak about their journey, Camille said. We share our experiences, she said. They also share information, such as news on medications, clinical trials, sources of financial help and other relevant data. Newly diagnosed patients often are afraid and overwhelmed by their lack of knowledge about the cancer. They need a place where they can talk with others who can share what theyve learned and can relate to their feelings, Jim said. They need someone to talk to, said Jim, the support groups co-leader. Generally, when they leave, they feel so much better. They know theyre not alone. The roundtable sharing part of it is very effective, Camille said. Danny Scott, who lives in Wesley Chapel, has been attending the meetings for just about as long as Jim and Camille have been holding them. He goes to two other support groups, as well. Youre seeing and talking to other patients with active myeloma, he said. Myeloma is a disease where no two patients react, or are treated the same way. You find out things that work for people, which the MDs or the oncologists dont really know about, he said. There are often practical tips that others have discovered, Scott said. The support is a good source of information from other patients about various approaches that can be helpful, Scott said. They are also can provide useful information for caregivers. You at least have the opportunity to seek out and find different opportunities for dealing with your disease, Scott said, which can include things such as nutritionists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other sources of help. Much more is known about multiple myeloma than was in the past, Camille said. Theres a lot of hope, Camille added, noting there are many new treatment advances. The support group draws members from Pasco and Hillsborough counties, Camille said. At its last session, there were 17 people, including members from Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel and Lutz. Eventually, Camille and Jim, would like to shift the meeting place to a new location possibly to a meeting room at St. Josephs Hospital-North. My husband and I have to set up all of our tables. Were getting older, she said. There might come a day when it wont be that easy for us to do all of this lugging. Id like to get into a nice meeting room in a medical establishment because we are an educational group for multiple myeloma, she said. St. Josephs Hospital-North is a good location, she said. It has meeting rooms and a restaurant.

Now is the time to check evacuation zones, make arrangements, build a supply kit, secure your home and/or business, and stay informed with emergency alerts. Residents should prepare for the worst by having a plan in place before a hurricane or tropical storm hits. These tips will help with a safety plan or checklist: Compile a plan. Have a plan that covers necessities and likely needs, such as getting sandbags, where to go during an evacuation, and how to get there. Share your information with family members. Register for alerts. In Pasco County, use the Alert Pasco app to receive emergency notifications and/or threatening severe weather messages. In Hillsborough County, the mass notification system is HCFL Alert. Keep your contact information updated to ensure you get alerts in real time. Know your zone. Residents, visitors and businesses should know what evacuation zone they are in by visiting PascoCountyFL.net or HillsboroughCounty.org. Pack an evacuation kit. Generally, every kit should have water, food, medications, personal hygiene items, important papers, changes of clothing and footwear, blankets or sleeping bags, a battery-powered radio and flashlight, a first-aid kit, and cash. Prepare your pets. Have a plan in place should you need to take your pet to a shelter, and always take a pet carrier, food, medications, and proof of current rabies vaccination and registration tag. Register for special-needs assistance. Anyone with special needs, seniors, and those without transportation can register for programs in place to help these individuals prepare and find safe shelter and transportation. Ready your property. Take steps to get your residence or property ready for hurricanes and inclement weather. Protect your business. Take steps to minimize losses and increase business survivability.

That was the day he gave up a successful insurance business in Blue Point, New York, to resume full-time work as an officer for the New York Police Department, where he had worked previously for 15 years. After assisting with the 9/11-recovery effort, Papola moved to Florida and served a 10-year stint as a deputy sheriff with the Pasco County Sheriffs Office. This past March, he returned to insurance sales, opening an Allstate office in Lutz. Steve views insurance as a natural extension of serving and protecting the public. A customer is a customer, whether youre wearing a uniform serving them in one capacity, or wearing a suit and serving them in another capacity, says Steve. He also considers Allstate, informally called Big Blue, a natural business partner for a former police officer from the NYPD Blue. Now, Steve protects people against financial loss. His agency offers many types of insurance automobile, homeowners and property, flood insurance, and business and commercial. He is especially proud of the specialty lines offered, including motorcycle, boat, recreational and offroad vehicle insurance. Papola also offers more than just Allstate products, including life insurance, annuities and retirement plans. Allstate allows us to access alternative markets that it has selected to be stable enough to meet the standard of Allstates quality control, when Allstate has determined the risk to be unacceptable to its underwriting. Those alternative markets are in Property and Commercial Insurance. This allows agents to access additional Homeowners Insurance companies, as well as other companies, not affiliated with and not part of Allstate. Allstate has re-entered the homeowners insurance market with the introduction of Castle Key Indemnity Insurance Company on a limited basis and, if the risk qualifies, the insured is likely to save significantly. Steve likes to compare the quality of customer service at his agency with those of online, toll-free number insurance services. I own this business, Steve said. This is me. I represent Allstate, I have skin in the game, and will never treat you like that 800 number. Im going to make sure you are treated well and are satisfied. Steve believes that Allstate agencies like his are an integral part to a community. We help communities grow, because we open agencies and employ people who come in and work with us from the local area, Steve said. An Allstate agency is not just a place that sells insurance. Its a business that contributes to the community and puts people to work. Papolas Allstate office is located at 1528 Land O Lakes Blvd., Suite 102, in Lutz, in Tropical Village Plaza across from WalMart.

Training for the safety guards is scheduled to begin in June, with a goal of having the guards prepared for duties by August. Some applicants were retired law enforcement officers. Were excited about the level of interest and the caliber of people who are interested, said Betsy Kuhn, assistant superintendent for support services with Pasco County Schools. The update on hiring school safety guards was part of a broader presentation on school safety, hosted by the Pasco County Schools public school district on May 7, at the Wiregrass High School cafeteria. About 100 people attended, including parents, teachers, school board members and school bus drivers. The presentation highlighted the school districts response to a new state law requiring elementary schools to have armed security. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act is a reaction to the Valentines Day school shooting in Parkland when 17 people were killed. Lawmakers approved some financial assistance for boosting school safety, and for mental health care. But, school officials said funding is inadequate, and wont pay to place School Resource Officers, who are certified law enforcement officers, at every school. The school district now has SROs at its middle and high schools. The security guards that will provide protection at elementary schools are a less-expensive option. Before being stationed at schools, the guards will go through 132 hours of training with the Pasco County Sheriffs Office. Other topics discussed at the public meeting included the school districts update to its Active Threat Plan; the highlights of the states new restriction on firearms; and mental health care services.MAKING CAMPUSES SAFERThe school district began a review of its existing school safety plan in January. The updated version was implemented in August. Priorities are on safety, prevention efforts and working collaboratively with the sheriffs office. An assessment of the districts 90 facilities is underway. The final report will look at additional ways to eliminate vulnerabilities on campuses, Kuhn said. We want to make sure we remain vigilant as we get farther away from Parkland, she said. Were looking at how we balance our facilities so they are welcoming to the community, but safe. That isnt a balance everyone supported. One woman during public comment said, I dont want my school open to the community. I want it closed. About a dozen people spoke during public comment. They talked about their fears, and those of their children or students. They also spoke about how the school district can improve safety, and do better at communicating to parents and school employees. Rayomond Chinoy has two children who will attend high school next year. He has met privately with school officials about his concerns. One issue he raised at the public meeting is how school officials would stop potential shooters from entering school buildings, once they have been identified as threats. He also worries about safety on school field trips. I dont think theyve figured out a balance yet, said Chinoy, speaking after the meeting. I want to know this is how were going to fix it. This is where the money is coming from. Some also wanted greater emphasis on prevention efforts, and mental health support. Browning said, This district works incredibly hard to identify those kids who need extra support. But, funding is an issue. And, regarding the issue of identifying potential active shooters, Browning said, I dont know of anyone who is a clairvoyant who knows whats in the head of every kid. Lt. Troy Ferguson, with the sheriffs office, talked about law enforcements role in school safety. Its a sad commentary on society that we have to have these types of meetings, he said. But, the sheriffs office monitors threats on a daily basis. Recently, a teenager who moved from Pasco to Ohio made a threat on social media. Ferguson said he was arrested in Ohio. And, even if it means waking parents at 2 a.m., to ask about a tweet or Facebook post by their child, Ferguson said deputies will do whats necessary for safety. Active shooter situations generally last 6 minutes to 12 minutes, he said. In those moments, response plans rely on a mitigation strategy not a prevention strategy, Ferguson said. The goals are self-evacuation; communications and alerts for school lockdown and barricading classrooms; concealment; and, as a last resort, countering the attacker. Its literally about defending your life and the life of a child, looking for a place to take refuge, Ferguson said. The sheriffs office, similar to the school district, wants to strike a balance. We want to be inviting to the community, said Ferguson. We dont want to think about building moats and putting in big dragons, just yet. There were divisions among those at the meeting on whether to arm school employees, including teachers, with firearms. Browning said state lawmakers want SROs at every school, but they didnt provide funding for that. We cant afford true SROs on all of our campuses, he said. But, he added, Im not ready to arm district personnel. Im just not ready to do that. Browning said deputies responding to active shooters would have trouble distinguishing between school employees and the shooter. One woman suggested that district personnel could wear badges or special vests, if they were armed. Some parents spoke about building modifications that were needed. For example, they said many schools have doors with glass windows that can be broken for easy access into classrooms. Once the campus assessment is done, Browning said the district will know more about additional expenses needed to boost safety measures. The next step would be to identify financial resources, which might involve local fundraising activities. This was an insightful evening, Browning said. Were still working through the plan. We can do a better job of communicating. The conversation does not stop here. KATHY STEELE
By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.com T hey are members of the Class of 2018, and they will be marching Â— by the thousands Â— into their futures. Students from across Lutz, Odessa, Land OÂ’ Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills, San Antonio and Saint Leo are donning caps and gowns, and are leaving their high schools behind.Ending one chapter, starting a new oneThese are students who have grown up in the age of technology. TheyÂ’ve mastered Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. TheyÂ’re experts at posting to Facebook and YouTube. Their Smartphones are their constant companions and texting comes second-nature to them. And, someday, perhaps not in the too distant future, theyÂ’ll be riding in driverless electric-powered cars. TheyÂ’ve been witnesses to history. TheyÂ’ve seen the election of Barack Obama, the nationÂ’s first African-American president, and also of President Donald J. Trump, a real estate mogul and reality television celebrity. TheyÂ’ve seen activism grow, and in many cases, have been a part of it. After the Feb. 14 slaying of students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, students Â— both locally and across the nation Â— organized demonstrations to pressure lawmakers to make changes to gun laws. TheyÂ’ve also seen or have played a role in other growing movements, including the #MeToo Movement, Black Lives Matter and the WomenÂ’s March on Washington.Soon, these graduates will be assuming a larger role in making their own mark on history, both in their personal lives and in the world, at large. Some will head off to the University of Florida, Emory University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology, Florida Institute of Technology, Boston College, New York University, Duke University, Florida Atlantic University, University of Central Florida and Florida State University. Of course, others will be staying closer to home, attending Saint Leo University, the University of South Florida, Rasmussen College, PascoHernando State College and Hillsborough Community College. Their major fields of study include aerospace engineering, computer science, pre-medical, environmental engineering, biology, health science, nursing, biochemistry, engineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, chemistry, communication sciences and disorders, business administration, international business and Japanese. Others will be studying to work in skilled trades, or heading directly to the workforce. Before beginning a new chapter, though, these graduates are pausing to celebrate their accomplishments so far. They will gather at events with friends and family to savor this milestone in life. Some commencement ceremonies will be in intimate settings; others, in huge auditoriums. And, while the world around them remains unpredictable, itÂ’s likely most of these gatherings will include the time-honored traditions of pomp and circumstance, caps and gowns, speeches, music and photos. Of course, the big moment comes, for all of those assembled, when the name of their particular graduate is announced. After the ceremonies come the post-commencement celebrations Â— as unique and varied as the graduates themselves. As they head in their myriad directions, to decide their own paths in life, please join The Laker/Lutz News in saluting members of the Class of 2018, and congratulating them on their accomplishments.

The university hosts 13 commencement ceremonies throughout the United States, with the first three being held at the Marion Bowman Activities Center at the St. Leo campus. Commencement ceremonies will continue for Saint Leo WorldWide and the universitys education centers through July 7, according to a news release. Former Florida Governor Robert Bob Martinez addressed the undergraduates during an afternoon ceremony on April 28. He was the states 40th governor from 1987 through 1990. Martinez also was the mayor of Tampa, from 1979 to 1996. Cassidy Whitaker, of Brandon, who earned a Bachelor of Arts in political science, was selected to address her classmates. Her peers are mostly traditional-age college students who earned degrees at University Campus. Whitaker cited a phrase used by Martin Luther King Jr., and former President Barack Obama: The fierce urgency of now, as her encouragement to look to the future. On the morning of April 28, more than 400 students earned masters degrees and two students received their Doctor of Business Administration degrees. Stephen B. Kubasek, of Wesley Chapel, and George J. Simonof, of Jacksonville, earned those degrees. MaryEllen Elia, New York State commissioner of education and president of the University of the State of New York (USNY), spoke to graduates at the April 28 session. Elia served as superintendent of schools in Hillsborough County for 10 years. Elia asked the Class of 2018 to think about what they would like to say to the Saint Leo Class of 2028. Youve had a great foundation here at Saint Leo, she said. And, you all have two things in common. You have purpose, and you have perseverance. Selected as the student speaker for the graduate programs commencement was student-athlete Niclas Bez, who earned a Master of Business Administration degree. Bez, a native of Bonn, Germany, also ran mens track for the Lions. Bez compared the journey to an MBA to his 1500-meter runs in track. At the beginning of the race, one is overwhelmed. The great thing is that you are not by yourself. Just like having your coaches and friends encouraging you from the side of the track, you have your professors on the sidelines during your graduate degrees, he told his classmates. Saint Leo alumnus and former Florida legislator Edwin Narain gave the commencement address for the April 27 Saint Leo WorldWide graduation ceremony for the universitys nontraditional and online students. About 330 students received their degrees in the ceremony. Narain is regional director of external affairs for AT&T, a member of the universitys board of trustees, and a former state legislator. Selected to speak to her fellow Saint Leo WorldWide students was Quinisha Abrahams, of Jacksonville, an active duty U.S. Navy chief petty officer. Abrahams earned her Associate of Arts degree in 2013, and in 2015 she resumed her educational journey with Saint Leo University. Getting a degree by any means or medium, at any age, is no easy task, Adams said to her peers. But, we did. Because our own personal development matters not only to ourselves, but it will impact those around us as well.Saint Leo University awards 1,100 degrees COURTESY OF SAINT LEO UNIVERSITY

www.LakerLutzNews.com May 16, 201819A Â“Home sales are rising, but in a very moderate way,Â” he said. Â“We are nowhere back to the 2005 Â‘easy lendingÂ’ days. Â“There is no bubble, even with the strong price recovery, because we donÂ’t have that easy subprime lending,Â” Yun said. However, he noted that rising home prices are beginning to hurt affordability. Â“We hope that price increases do not become 8 percent, 10 percent every year. Your clients will diminish, if this was to continue. Â“The ideal solution in the future, in the upcoming years, price growth to match similarly to wage and income growth,Â” he said, noting a 3 percent to 4 percent annual price increase would be ideal. A shortage of inventory is having a negative impact, he added. Â“Contract signing appears to be flattening out,Â” he said. Buyers want more choices when they are shopping for a home, Yun said. Â“You need more inventory,Â” he said. Â“We just donÂ’t have enough inventory because homebuilders have not been building aggressively, or even (a) normal amount, for 10 straight years,Â” Yun said. Yun said efforts are being made to provide regulatory relief to community banks, which have been a primary lending source for small homebuilders. Â“For many years in America, most of the homebuilding was done by Mr. and Mrs. Jones Homebuilding Company. TheyÂ’d do about 10 homes a year. TheyÂ’re not in the game today. They have challenges entering the game,Â” Yun said, noting thatÂ’s because of regulatory restraints on small community banks. Yun also urges local governments to do their part to get more housing permits approved. When more houses are built, prices moderate and consumers have more options. When prices moderate, Â“middle class families who want to own a home have a better chance to own a home,Â” he said. Yun noted thereÂ’s a huge mismatch between the percentage of increase in home prices and percentage of increase in incomes. Â“Home prices, ideally, should rise in relation to peopleÂ’s income,Â” Yun said. HOUSING, from page 1A County officials acknowledged that the code doesnÂ’t specifically list where Â“solar electric power collection facilitiesÂ” are permitted. Decisions were made based on a section dealing with uncertain classification rules. As a result, solar farms were deemed suitable for agriculturally zoned areas, but they also need a special exemption permit. County officials said the approval process gives residents opportunities to raise objections and provide input on the project. But, residents said the current process is insufficient. Â“ItÂ’s almost a shotgun effect, instead of thinking and planning for it,Â” said resident Paul Boetcher. Others agreed. Â“This involves the whole county,Â” said resident Nancy Hazelwood. Â“ItÂ’s just not our area. How many solar farms are you going to put in each district? How are you going to control that?Â” Resident Judy Geiger said the county seemed to be reacting, when there should be proactive measures. Â“Hire a planner that knows solar,Â” she said. Â“LetÂ’s do solar all at one time, instead of piecemeal.Â” Electric company officials say, if approved, TECO plans to invest about $75 million in the solar farm, which is expected to produce about 53 megawatts of power. Over the next decade, TECO plans to invest about $850 million in solar projects to produce energy for about 100,000 customers in Florida.SOLAR, from page 1A the stands. The emotional high both will experience is the culmination of 18 years of love between a parent and child, and the persistence, patience and prodding that comes with good parenting. So, it will be with well-deserved pride that parents search the listings in our graduation section to find their childÂ’s name. And, joining them in that search will be grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, friends, and, of course, the graduate, too. For most members of the Class of 2018, this edition of The Laker/Lutz News will be the first time that the graduate will see his or her name in print. There is something innately exciting and very tangible about having your name printed in a newspaper that is also read by your family, friends, neighbors and people you know through church, community groups, and sports and recreational activities. Many of you reading todayÂ’s newspaper will circle or highlight the names you recognize, and will proudly put the section aside to save with your most treasured items. Offering public acknowledgement of each studentÂ’s achievement and providing families a keepsake of this important milestone, are among the reasons we continue our tradition of producing an annual graduation section. The names of the graduates are listed by school, in alphabetical order, in our eightpage section. In Pasco County, graduates are from Land OÂ’Lakes, Pasco, Sunlake, Wesley Chapel, Wiregrass and Zephyrhills high schools. In Hillsborough County, graduates are from Steinbrenner and Freedom high schools. In your edition of the paper, will find graduate names from the two high schools closest to where you live, and also the names of valedictorians and salutatorians from these schools. In addition to graduates from our public schools, we also publish the names of graduates from three private schools in our community Â— Academy at the Lakes, Bishop McLaughlin Catholic and Land OÂ’ Lakes Christian high schools. We are proud to contribute, in some small measure, to the emotional excitement that graduation brings. We hope that one day the graduates listed in this section will pull it out to share with their children and grandchildren Â— so that future generations will be able to see a physical reminder of their loved oneÂ’s accomplishment, as printed proudly in their local community newspaper.HONORING, from page 1A Follow @LakerLutzNews on Twitter Â–www.twitter.com/lakerlutznews Lawrence Yun Pasco CountyÂ’s outlook is bright, panel saysBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comPanelists speaking at a real estate conference in Wesley Chapel last week said Pasco County has been making strides and is expected to continue to do so. For decades, Pasco County has been considered a bedroom community Â— with residents making a daily commute to jobs in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. That picture is changing, said Heidi Tuttle-Beisner, an expert in commercial real estate. Â“The excellent thing for Pasco County is that we now have jobs being created right here. We have big national companies that have chosen to build their developments here and hire the people that we have living in our community. Â“Whoever thought companies like Mettler Toledo would be here?Â” TuttleBeisner said. Â“Lots of people are paying attention to Pasco County,Â” she said. She also gave high marks to the Porter family for the work theyÂ’ve done to manage the development of Wiregrass Ranch, in Wesley Chapel. Â“People like the Porters have really done an incredible job of keeping the quality up. I donÂ’t think weÂ’re ever going to see (State Road) 54 be (like) U.S. 19. They set the standard,Â” she said, noting they have been strategic not only in building relationships. But also Â“building buildings that are attractive.Â” Mark Metheny, division president of Lennar, said he spends a lot of his time trying to find locations for new Lennar communities. A good example of the range of LennarÂ’s offerings can be found in Wiregrass Ranch, he said. Estancia is a multigenerational community, with a number of product lines, he said. There are homes exceeding $1 million, but there are also high-end townhomes coming in, he said. Â“ItÂ’s really exciting to see the growth thatÂ’s going on in Pasco County,Â” Metheny said. Clarke Hobby, a land use attorney based in Dade City, said his family has deep roots in Pasco County. Â“We are very interested in the long-view of the county Â— building a great community, great places to live for our families and for many generations beyond us,Â” Hobby said. Â“WeÂ’ve watched the Porter family and have seen their vision play out. ItÂ’s a wonderful thing theyÂ’ve done at Wiregrass more than anything else, theyÂ’ve tried to create a balanced community. ItÂ’s so easy to just focus on the residential. Â“The harder part is to bring the employment side and the institutional side, making sure that places like the building weÂ’re in today, are here. Without their guidance, that wouldnÂ’t have happened,Â” Hobby said. HeÂ’s optimistic about the outlook in Pasco County. Â“ThereÂ’s a bright, bright future ahead of the county,Â” said Hobby, who has been involved in the effort to extend State Road 56 from Wiregrass Ranch over to Zephyrhills. The four-lane extension, which covers 6.7 miles, is expected to open up within a few months. He expects that extension to generate new activity, leading eventually to the construction of about 10,000 houses and millions of square feet of development. J.D. Porter, another panelist, told the crowd that he, too, anticipates continued growth Â— as well as new employment. He expects the long-awaited Raymond James office park to Â“start turning dirt by the end of the year.Â” Â“ItÂ’s very exciting to have one big user like that, and we are waiting for somebody to come out of the ground,Â” Porter said. That being said, he noted, Â“we are talking to two names that are bigger than Raymond James right now, in the immediate area adjacent to that. Â“The Raymond James announcement, once they finally go, that will be a drop in the bucket versus what actually comes down the pipeline shortly after.Â” Porter also noted the family wants to be sure to have a mix of development, so the community doesnÂ’t become too reliant on big users.

Check our weekly ad for current deals It took an injury playing football for Evan Miller to unleash his potential at the track. Miller, from Zephyrhills Christian Academy, recently captured the Class 1A boys 100-meter dash title in a blistering 10.75 seconds at the Florida High School Athletic Association Track & Field 2018 Championships at the University of North Florida, in Jacksonville. Moreover, the senior was the final leg of the schools gold-medal winning 4x100meter relay team that scorched the competition with a 42.10 second mark joining junior NyJohn Moody, sophomore Tyler Davis and senior Calvin Samuel. Those marked the only first-place finishes at the state meet among athletes from The Laker/Lutz News Coverage area. The event was held May 4 and May 5. For Miller, the memorable showing has been a year in the making. Last summer, the multisport athlete suffered a broken ankle during a 7-on-7 football tournament. The injury forced Miller, a standout defensive back, to miss several games in the fall as a member of the Zephyrhills Christian Academy varsity football team. Unable to hit the gridiron, Miller hit the starting blocks instead, as part of his rehabilitation process. It was like an epiphany, Well, we could do track, to help work him back into shape, said his mother and track coach Erica Miller. He still always had his eye on football, but we just didnt really realize he was that good at track, so it kind of fell into place. For him now, a year later (after the injury) to be state champ, thats awesome; miraculous, really, she said. Though Miller ran track his freshman year (then for Wiregrass Ranch High School) and for Zephyrhills Christian Academy as a junior, the speedster admitted this was the first time he really began to seriously train for the sport. His focus on it intensified after his football-related setback. Around December, Miller linked up with AAU track coach and personal trainer BB Roberts, who runs the Wesley Chapel-based Speed Starz Track Club, and lists NFL and MLB athletes as training clientele. Roberts, a former track star in his own right at Wesley Chapel High School and Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College, worked to correct Millers running form and technique, among other tips.Miller explained: He helped me with my start. My start was something I really needed to work on coming off the blocks. And then sprinting, finishing the race. He taught me transitions through the race. Its not just getting from point A to point B, theres a transition, a drive phase, all that stuffThe fixtures shaved Millers 100-meter personal record from a still-impressive 11.2 to a 10.69 which he set at the Steinbrenner High Invitational in early April. Meanwhile, Millers time of 10.75 second in the state finals bested a 10.77-second effort from the second-place finisher, Community School of Naples senior Alex Murphey. The next fastest time in the 1A finals was a 10.98. Miller no doubt believed in himself at the event. I was very confident, Miller said, because it wasnt that I was much faster, but every meet I was placing either first or second, so I was very confident going into states and regionals, knowing Ill be able to win. He added: I was ready to run that day. I went into the finals with the mindset of, Im going to get a gold medal. Im going to get first place. Im not accepting under that. So, it felt good to cross the finish line, at first. And, it had me in a good mood for the 4x100 (relay) as well, because that was the next race. Miller is also proud to represent his small school which has about 250 students from prekindergarten through 12th grade in just its second year offering a boys and girls track & field program. A budding program, Zephyrhills Christian Academy also reached states last year and came home with gold in the boys 4x100 relay (43.3 seconds). That relay squad featured Miller, Samuel, Jevan Smith and Dominic Moses. Its kinda cool. Since last year was actually our first year ever running track and actually made it to states, it feels good to bring attention to the school for track, Miller said. Aside from natural ability and learning to master sprinting fundamentals, Roberts credits Millers motivation, determination and never-give-up attitude as reasons for the prep sprinters all-but immediate success. He had will. He had the potential, Roberts said. It wasnt magic or anything like that. He was willing to listen, willing to learn, willing to take criticism. He came out the very first track meet, and I saw him and I said, Hey, lets work on this. Every other track meet wed work on something else, until we perfected it. Miller just turned 17 and plans to compete in football and track at Warner University, in Lake Wales. A state title in hand, perhaps Millers next goal is supplanting Roberts own 100meter best of 10.64 seconds. Im going to get him past that. I want him to be better than me, said Roberts, noting he could see Miller reach the 10.4s by July. The track star has other bold aspirations in sight, too. Miller explained: Im looking to chop down my time as much as I can, maybe even try out for the Olympics. My parents were talking to me about the 2020 Olympics, maybe getting in that if I get my time down, in time. But, Im just going to keep running track in college, see where I can get from that. Roberts acknowledged such a goal is attainable for Miller, with athletic bloodlines to further tap into. Along with his mother who ran track in high school, his father, Selvesta Miller, played football at the University of South Carolina and also had a stint with the Miami Dolphins, as a linebacker/defensive end. He can go far, Roberts said. Hes definitely an amazing kid, and Im excited for what the future holds for him.COURTESY OF ERICA MILLER Local sprinter wins state title, has promising future 1A BOYSTEAM(S) Zephyrhills Christian Academy(tied for 7th out of 57 schools)Carrollwood Day School(48th)100-METER DASH 1st place: Evan Miller, Zephyrhills Christian Academy (10.75 seconds)110-METER HURDLES 6th place:Seth Cribben, Carrollwood Day School (15.44 seconds)4X100-METER RELAY 1st place: Zephyrhills Christian Academy NyJohn Moody, Tyler Davis, Calvin Samuel, Evan Miller (42.10 seconds)TRIPLE JUMP 9th place: Kavion Mabra, Zephyrhills Christian Academy (12.93 meters)23rd:Christopher Sheppard III, Carrollwood Day School (11.45 meters)GIRLSTEAM(S) Carrollwood Day School (31st out of 48 schools)POLE VAULT 4th place-tied:Hailey Crow, Carrollwood Day School (3.00 meters) 2A BOYSTEAM(S) Zephyrhills High School(tied for 30th out of 55 schools)LONG JUMP 8th place: Cartrell Strong, Zephyrhills (6.66 meters)TRIPLE JUMP 5th place:Cartrell Strong, Zephyrhills (13.49 meters) 3A BOYSLand O Lakes High School (tied for 23rd out of 54 schools)Wesley Chapel High School(tied for 23rd)Pasco High School (tied for 36th)100-METER DASH 3rd place:Isaiah Bolden, Wesley Chapel (10.75 seconds)200-METER DASH 7th place:Isaiah Bolden, Wesley Chapel (23.07 seconds)400-METER DASH 4th place:Mario Watson, Pasco (48.52 seconds)3200-METER RUN 19th place: Alejandro Michel, Freedom (10:11.77 minutes)4X800-METER RELAY 16th place:Land O LakesAdam Hahn, Josiah Pineda, Joseph Pineda, Alex Normandia (8:21.95 minutes)POLE VAULT 2nd place:Tucker Brace, Land O Lakes (4.65 meters)SHOT PUT 11th place: Gregory Zellers, Sunlake (15.21 meters)23rd: Thomas Calta, Land O Lakes (13.40 meters)GIRLSGaither High School (tied for 17th place out of 46 schools)Sunlake High School (tied for 32nd)Land O Lakes High School(46th)100-METER DASH 4th place:LaSarah Hargove, Gaither (11.95 seconds)200-METER DASH 4th place: LaSarah Hargrove, Gaither (24.00 seconds)1600-METER RUN 20th place: Natalie Abernathy, Land O Lakes (5:27.76 minutes)3200-METER RUN 8th place: Natalie Abernathy, Land O Lakes (11:15.71 minutes)24th: Shannon Gordy, Sunlake (12:47.54 minutes)LONG JUMP 6th place: Arielle Boone, Sunlake (5.43 meters)20th: Gianna Levy, Sunlake (4.89 meters)TRIPLE JUMP 13th place: Arielle Boone, Sunlake (11.05 meters)SHOT PUT 7th place: Lauryn Beacham, Sunlake (11.20 meters)DISCUS 19th: Keyvyn Stinyard, Pasco, (29.54 meters) 4A BOYSSteinbrenner High School(44th place out of 52 schools)4X800-METER RELAY 18th place:SteinbrennerMarcus Quinones, McCrea Weller, Zachary Harrigan, Zachary Whitmer (8:18.78 minutes)GIRLSSteinbrenner High School(tied for 18th place out of 53 schools)400-METER DASH 6th place:Kennaria Gadson (56.77 seconds)1600-METER RUN 15th place: Sophia Piniella, Steinbrenner (5:17.97 minutes)18th:Alexandra Staumann, Steinbrenner (5:22.61 minutes)3200-METER RUN 8th place: Sophia Piniella, Steinbrenner (11.07. 57 minutes)4X400-METER RELAY 9th place: SteinbrennerNatalie Brown, Serena Gadson, Kennaria Gadson, Dana Elkalazani (3:58.15 minutes)LONG JUMP 10th place: Ashley Allen, Steinbrenner (5.23 meters)POLE VAULT 10th place: Ashlyn Ludovici, Steinbrenner (3.15 meters)Triple Jump 9th place: Sara Grofter, Steinbrenner (11.07 meters)16th: Harmony Shellman, Steinbrenner (10.45 meters)2018 FHSAA Track & Field ChampionshipsResults of top finishers in T he Laker/Lutz News Coverage area, for Classes 1A-4A:
INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B Its a Monday evening at the Dade City Womans Club and vocal coach Alison Graham sits at a small round table, near a bank of windows. Girls are sitting around her on the floor, listening as Graham reads through judges comments from their most recent competition. Its a routine the girls know well. The singers, who are members of Graham Music Studios, are accustomed to performing, and also to being judged. They make frequent appearances at local events, such as the Pasco County Fair, the Kumquat Festival, Church Street Christmas, the San Antonio Rattlesnake Festival, the Dade City Christmas Stroll, and the holiday show at The Shops at Wiregrass. They compete at Spotlight on Talent, a local showcase and also every year at Access Broadway in Orlando, which has regional and national contests. Grahams groups have been competing in Orlando for about 10 years. Last summer, her middle group won the national competition and this spring, her oldest group took the top prize in regionals. Grahams groups compete in regionals every year in Orlando, and at nationals when theyre held there. The nationals rotate between Orlando, New York and Las Vegas. While her groups and individual members in the groups have a good track record at competitions, Graham said thats not her focus. Its not about the trophy, she said. Shes far more interested in the individual development of each of her singers. Her groups also aim to foster teamwork and camaraderie. After a singer performs, Graham said she tries to talk to her before the awards are announced. She wants to know how the singer felt about the performance. Sometimes the singer will acknowledge that she hadnt prepared enough; other times, shell say she gave it her all. I dont care what place you got. I care about: Did you do well for you? Did you do your best?, said Graham, who has been coaching vocal groups and giving private voice lessons for more than 20 years.STRIVING TO REACH THEIR POTENTIALShe wants her singers to make the most of their ability and to continue the quest to improve. One of the things I say all of the time is, Good is the enemy of great. If youre OK with good, you are not going to be great, she said. Sometimes, the judges wont see a performance the same way that Graham sees it. When, for instance, the judge gets it wrong in Grahams opinion, shell tell the singer: We both know you got ripped off. In the same breath, though, shell remind them: You cant control the judges. You have to focus on what you can control. Graham has three singing groups. In general, Showtime is made up of elementary students; Showbiz is made up of middle school students; and Showstoppers is made up of high school students. Occasionally, a younger girl may be part of an older group. And, because there are three different age groups, Graham has set up a system: Theres a big sister, a middle sister and a little sister, and they look out for each other, she said. They bond with each other and validate each other, too, she said. If a girl kills it and still comes in fifth, the other girls will support her, the vocal coach explained. Grahams weekly group lessons are 45 minutes long, beginning at 6 p.m., for the youngest singers; then at 7 p.m., for the middle group; and at 8 p.m., for the oldest group. It costs $50 a month for the group lessons, but that doesnt include expenses for costumes or entry fees for competitions. Most of her older singers also take private voice lessons with her. Graham began her career as a music teacher at Hunters Green Elementary School, but decided to offer private lessons when her son was born, more than two decades ago. The waiting list for her private lessons grew so long that she decided to form groups. Most of the singers at Graham Music Studios come from Dade City, but some come from other areas, including Zephyrhills and Sumter County. Graham said the success of her program is a result of the dedication of her singers, and the support of both their parents and the community, at large. I have a lot of people say, Is your job like Dance Moms? I bet it is. Honestly, its the opposite of Dance Moms. When I came to Access Broadway, one of the moms had Starbucks for me. Another mom ran and got my lunch for me. They are just: Whatever those girls need. Thats why theyre successful, Graham said. Occasionally, though, something will come up, and shell have to have a chat with a parent. Shell say: My job is to do whats best for the group, and your job is to whats best for your kid. Sometimes, those things dont overlap. Ultimately, though, they all have to understand that Im the one who is going to pull the trigger in the end, the vocal coach said. The community of Dade City provides welcome support, Graham added. If we were from a large town, like Tampa, you just dont know them. But in Dade City, people know these girls, she said. Having the girls look out for each other is essential when they are performing at a large event, Graham said. At The Shops of Wiregrass, during the holidays, for instance, when those little girls come off the stage, the big girls are waiting there for them, she said. The girls grow attached to each other and to Graham, and the vocal coach also bonds with the singers. Theres a lot of affection and laughter, but a good deal of focus and effort, too.OFFERING CRITICISM AND KINDNESSCatherine Beard, a relatively new singer in the oldest group, said belonging to the group requires commitment. It takes a lot of hard work. We all have to practice over and over, until we get it right, she said. She thinks the singers are in good hands. Mrs. Alison is absolutely wonderful. Shes kind and supportive. Shes experienced. She knows what shes doing, Beard said. Some girls in the oldest group have been singing with Graham for a dozen years. Megan Phillips joined Grahams group 11 years ago. She was delighted when Showstoppers received the top honor at Access Broadways spring regional competition. The group put in extra practices to prepare and faced quality competitors, she said. Phillips appreciates Graham. Mrs. Alison is a second mom. Ive known her almost my entire life, and shes a great person. Shes supportive and nice, but shes not afraid to tell us what were doing wrong and what we need to improve ourselves, Phillips said. She values the other girls in her group, too. We really are a family here, and I love everything about Showstoppers, Phillips said. Mikayla Mauradian, a member in the middle group, appreciates Grahams candor and high standards. Miss Allison is truly a great teacher and we love her, and she always pushes us to do better, no matter the rating, Mauradian said. Georgia Piersall, a member of the oldest group, said the bond between the singers helps them perform well together. It definitely helps to have a group of girls who are as close as sisters to work with, Piersall said. Plus, she added: Mrs. Allison is so incredibly dedicated to what she does, it amazes me. She treats us like her own and is always proud of us, no matter what. Graham feels connected to the girls, too. Its always emotional when one of her singers graduates and moves on, Graham said. I cry every year. I just sit there, and bawl and bawl. The girls may leave, but they tend to come back to visit. Many show up at the end-of-year performance and pitch in backstage, Graham said. The vocal coach believes that being part of the group gives the girls something they wouldnt have independently. Something, at some point, is going to go wrong for you, Graham said. The friendship and support the girls get from one another, helps cushion them for lifes blows. Its having a safe place to land, Graham said. B.C.
