ManionVoters will be heading to the polls on Aug. 28 in Floridas primary election. Statewide, voters will decide who will represent the Democrats and who will represent the Republicans in a number of seats, including the race for governor. On the local front, voters will cast their ballots for districts one, three and five of the Pasco County School Board. The winner of those school board races could be decided, if a candidate secures more than 50 percent of the vote. Otherwise, the winner will be selected in the Nov. 6 general election. Voters also will be choosing judges and selecting candidates in a number of primary races. Polls are open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. See ELECTION, page15A By Kevin WeissAfter tiring of drinking the same old protein shakes, James Doyle decided to brainstorm some new ideas. He figured there was a way to turn his protein powder into a dessert. So, the 29-year-old Wesley Chapel man began experimenting. Inspired by how Jell-O works, Doyle developed FREEZINda, a liquid and dry mix product that transforms any whey protein powder into an ice cream-like, frozen dessert. Throughout a lengthy trial period, Doyle estimates he tested more than 100 different ingredients and about 3,000 pounds of frozen dessert in his kitchen. Doyles friends and family members even his dog, Buddy taste-tested recipes. As he toyed with countless combinations early on, his taste-testers were brutally honest. I had my dad try one of the formulas, and he straight up told me, It tastes horrible, and I was like, Oh, man! It (froze) right, it had the right qualities, it looked good, and then we tasted it and it was like, No! He said it took approximately 19 months to get the formula down. Eventually he found what he considers the ideal combination of mixing agents that bind together to form a texture that mirrors a sweet icy, syrupy sorbet; with ingredients like vegetable glycerin, erythritol (sugar alcohol), guar gum and xanthan gum, and just a gram of sugar per serving. FREEZINda officially launched last November and is now offered in 21 stores across the United States. It is non-genetically modified, low sugar, fat free, lactose free, gluten free, low glycemic (low net carbs) and vegetarian friendly. Preparation is easy. Mix any whey protein powder with a cup of water or milk like a protein shake then add the FREEZINda liquid and dry mix, and place in the freezer overnight. Doyles favorite concoction? Mixing in just about any type of chocolate mint whey protein powder, specifically the flavor made by Adaptogen Science. To further customize the high protein ice cream dessert replacement, Doyle recommends adding nuts, fruit, sprinkles and so on. Doyle noted: It definitely does satisfy your sweet tooth and your cravings that you would get, so once you eat it, then youre like, OK, Im good. And, theres no question hes a fan of his own product. For about eighth months straight, Doyle said he ate about 2 pounds of FREEZINda each day. I still eat it, he said, but not 2 pounds a day.COMPUTER SPECIALIST TURNED ENTREPRENEURDoyle was born in New York but went to high school in Leesburg, right outside The Villages.

ManionHillsborough County has filed a lawsuit in the 13th judicial circuit court in Hillsborough County against 14 manufacturers and distributors alleging they have played a role in the opioid epidemic in the county. The county has hired a national team of lawyers to represent them in the lawsuit, with attorney Mike Moore as the lead litigant. Moore, a former Mississippi attorney general, is now handling a number of similar suits on behalf of local and state governments nationwide. The list of defendants in the countys lawsuit includes Purdue Pharma, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, McKesson Corporation, CVS Health Corporation, Walgreens and nine others. At a news conference announcing the lawsuit, Hillsborough County Commission Chairwoman Sandra Murman said, Today is an important day, but today is just like every day in Hillsborough County. Theres a baby being born thats substance exposed because the mother was on drugs. We have many children every single day being removed from their homes, put in foster care because their parents are substance exposed and addicts.

2A Food trucks get the go-aheadPasco County is close to rolling out the welcome mat to food trucks as a dining option.The Pasco County Planning Commission approved a proposed food truck ordinance at its Aug. 9 meeting in Dade City. Next, the Pasco County Commission will consider the ordinance, which establishes regulations on food trucks, as well as veggie vans. Members of the countys Food Policy Advisory Council helped craft the proposed ordinance. The advisory council also helped create the countys first ordinance on community gardens. Food trucks currently operate under regulations for special events, such as the Kumquat festival in Dade City. The Pasco County Fairgrounds is exempt from the ordinance because there already is a food venue agreement in place for that site. If the ordinance is approved, no permits or registration would be required. The ordinance aims to encourage more food truck events, including food truck rallies. Other state agencies, including the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations, already regulate food truck operations for health and safety. Qualifying mobile food operations will be those having obtained all required permits and licenses from the State of Florida, according to the countys ordinance. The county would, however, impose special regulations to operate a permanent food truck court. Those venues typically have multiple food truck selections in one location, and provide amenities, such as restrooms, seating, trash cans and play areas. Football tailgaters dont need to fret that the barbecue ribs, chicken, hot dogs and burgers served up from the back of their trucks will be governed by the new ordinance. It doesnt regulate folks doing private tailgating, said Denise Hernandez, the countys zoning administrator. This is for public consumption (of food) being sold to the public. The history of food trucks dates back centuries to when street vendors sold their wares from pushcarts. Charles Goodnight gets credit for the first chuck wagon that trailed along with cowboys during cattle drives in the West in the mid-1800s. The more recent food truck fad started several years ago, and has become a permanent feature of the food industry. Operating hours for food trucks generally would be from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. However, a location abutting residential would be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Food trucks would not be able to park overnight. If they operate from one location more than 90 days, the county would consider the operation permanent. Other regulations would then apply. The ordinance also allows county departments, such as parks and recreation, to reach individual agreements for temporary food truck operations on county-owned property. A reservation fee, to be determined by each department, may be required. Volunteers made move-in day easier at Saint Leo University for students arriving at the campus in St. Leo. More than 700 new students were welcomed on Aug. 16 by orientation leaders, faculty, staff, administration, student-athletes and coaches, according to a university news release. As cars arrived, volunteers surrounded them offering a warm welcome and a helping hand. University President Jeffrey Senese was among those pitching in, as students and volunteers carted boxes of belongings and other items to their dorms. The university president also greeted parents and helped calmed some move-in jitters. The incoming students picked up their laptop computers, enjoyed lunch in the Dining Hall, took part in a welcome ceremony and mini-pep rally, and said tearful and joyful goodbyes to their families. The Class of 2022 is represented by students from 37 states, as well as 35 countries. More than 260 students are from the Tampa Bay region, including Pasco, Hillsborough, Hernando, Pinellas and Manatee counties. The most popular academic program among incoming students is the Bachelor of Science in biology with an emphasis on biomedical and health services. Rounding out the top majors are criminal justice, business, sport business, marketing, psychology, computer science-information assurance, and elementary education. Saint Leo University is a Catholic university, grounded in the liberal arts tradition, and the Benedictine wisdom that seeks balanced growth of mind, body and spirit. It has a campus in St. Leo, located 30 miles north of Tampa, as well as 40 regional locations, and online programs. It offers more than 50 undergraduate degrees, programs and endorsements, as well as masters, doctoral and certificate programs.

A ribbon cutting for the traffic signal at Eiland and Handcart is scheduled for Aug. 23 at 9 a.m. The installation of that light was completed in time for the 7 a.m. start of the school year on Aug. 13. Its been a very dangerous intersection, said Pasco County Commissioner Ron Oakley. A new signal is expected to be operating at Eiland and Geiger by late November. The Eiland and Handcart intersection is among three that Oakley said were priorities. In addition to the Eiland traffic signals, a third one is planned at Chancey Road and Coats Road. That signal will be operating in late October. And, along with the traffic signal, Eiland and Handcart had other improvements, including guardrails and road resurfacing. Pasco County completed a 30-day traffic operations study at the intersection to collect traffic data. The analysis showed that the traffic signal was warranted based on Handcart (Road) southbound approach volumes and the amount of left turn vehicles turning east onto Eiland Boulevard. The study also found that two crashes occurred from Jan. 1, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2013. The crashes may have been prevented with the installation of a traffic signal, the study found. From Jan. 1, 2012 to Dec. 31, 2014, the study also documented two angle crashes that occurred at the intersection. However, the number of crashes alone didnt indicate a historic trend, or meet national standards. The Pasco County Commission approved the design plans for the project in 2016. Construction began in March 2018.

August 22, 2018 A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION IN THE LAKER/LUTZ NEWS Â€ 813-909-2800 Â€ LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM ThereÂ’s no place like in PASCO & NORTH HILLSBOROUGH A sturia, a new home community in Odessa, stands out among other planned developments along State Road 54 in Pasco County because of its uniquely smaller size. At build out in the next few years, Asturia will be a community of just 670 homes, while nearby master-planned communities have between 1,500 and 6,500 homes planned over several years of construction. Â“Asturia feels more like a neighborhood than a sprawling community,Â” said Lane Gardner, managing director for Hines, AsturiaÂ’s developer that is based in Jacksonville. Â“Our nature trails, pocket parks, first-class amenities and community events encourage residents to get to know their neighbors,Â” he continued. Â“Families choose Asturia because it is a friendly, walkable community that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle.Â” AsturiaÂ’s builders offer a variety of home sizes and prices, making it ideal for families looking to buy their first home, and for growing families with school-age children that need larger homes. The community also attracts empty-nesters and seasonal residents who are downsizing to a smaller home, and want the latest in technological upgrades and energy efficiencies. Asturia also stands out because its developer sponsors community events almost monthly to provide opportunities for residents to get to know their neighbors, and non-residents to see what it would be like to live in Asturia. Recent events include a 4th of July Pool Party, Hawaiian Spring Luau, and Dog Day Afternoon for people and their four-legged friends. Since Asturia opened in February 2016, over 200 homes have been sold in its first two phases. Hines is launching a third phase later this year, which will add townhomes for the first time to its mix of homes. Ryan Homes, one of the nationÂ’s oldest builders with communities in 14 states, is building the townhomes, which feature garages in the rear of the home. Townhomes will sell in the mid $200,000s, and are being constructed near the front of the community, walkable to AsturiaÂ’s Amenity Center. Later in Phase 3, Ryan Homes will also build traditional single-family homes. Â“WeÂ’re looking at townhome models opening toward the end of the year, or early in 2019,Â” said Gardner. Â“We are very pleased that Ryan Homes has joined us as a builder in Asturia, complementing our longtime builders Â— David Weekley Homes, Ashton Woods and ICI Homes.Â” While infrastructure work is underway in Phase 3, home construction continues in AsturiaÂ’s Phase 2, which is tucked against pristine conservation and cypress-lined wetlands. Â“All of our Phase 2 home sites offer privacy and peaceful, quiet surroundings,Â” said Gardner. Â“Some of the prettiest and most private lots in the community are still available.Â” AWARD WINNING AMENITY CENTER AsturiaÂ’s distinctive, 5,800-squarefoot Amenity Center and Clubhouse has earned the prestigious Silver Aurora Award for the Best Recreational Facility from the Southeast Building Conference, as well as Best Mixed-Use Community of the Year. This contemporary-design Amenity Center includes a fully equipped, modern clubhouse; covered outdoor dining areas; a luxurious, beach-entry, resort-style swimming pool; and an expansive event lawn for outdoor games. In the playground areas, there is a Kompan climbing dome, swings, slides, and spinners for youngsters to explore and enjoy.Make Asturia your new home by visiting its models, registering at the communityÂ’s website, AsturiaFlorida.com, or by calling (813) 227-4148.

T he last thing your family wants to deal with during the hot summer months is your homes A/C unit going on the blink.And, the best way to prevent that from happening is to have a maintenance plan with a reputable HVAC company, and to be aware when you're units warranty will expire. Your A/C should receive regular maintenance every six to 12 months to prevent an emergency situation, said Dana Spears, president of Cornerstone Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical in Land O Lakes. Maintaining your A/C is much like taking your vehicle in for regular oil changes and service updates. If you don't service your vehicle, you are looking for trouble. And, if you are not doing regular maintenance on your A/C system, when you have problems, it will likely be during the hottest times of the year when your unit is working its hardest, said Spears. A well-maintained A/C system should continue to operate through the end of its warranty period. However, as a system gets older, it loses much of its efficiencies and begins to show its age with inconsistent hot and cold pockets, and excessive noise. In many cases, Cornerstones technicians recommend replacing a system when the warranty expiration is nearing its end to avoid inevitable mechanical problems, and also to take advantage of new technology that makes A/C systems much more energy efficient. Often times, we find that the saving on a customers power bill is so significant because of the energy efficiencies of a new A/C unit, that it is more cost effective to replace a unit, than to repair it, Spears said. Plus, once you begin to replace parts on an older system, repairs often add up, and its better to put this money into a new system, said continued. Many owners of newer homes are surprised to learn that the warranty on their builder-grade air conditioning system on their newly built home is only five or six years, and are unprepared for the expense when their out-of-warranty A/C needs to be repaired or replaced. There are thousands of homes in this area that have been built in the last 10 years, and many homeowners are not aware that their A/C is out of warranty, said Spears. It is much better to be proactive and look into replacing you're A/C system before it goes down, then waiting until you are in an emergency situation. The new Daiken A/C systems installed by Cornerstone are of much better quality than builder-grade units, and come with 10 to12 year warranties. For most homes, the cost for a new HVAC system is between $5,500 and $12,000, depending on the units seer rating and type of technology the system offers to achieve higher energy efficient levels. The higher the seer rating, the more expensive the unit because it uses two-stage or inverter technology and slow speeds, Spears explains. But, a higher seer rating is more energy efficiency and can save a family hundreds to thousands of dollars a year on their power bill. Spears goes on to explain that a homes air conditioning system typically accounts for 50 percent of its power bill. For many families, it makes sense to go with a higher seer-rated unit because it will pay for itself within a few years. Plus, a higher quality system operates more quietly, and comes with a 12-year warranty, instead of the standard 10 years, said Spears. One of the biggest worries homeowners have when their old A/C unit starts having problems is the cost of repairs that keep adding up. It may be smarter to replace an old A/C unit, than it is to keep repairing it, which is also frustrating, time consuming and means your family will be without air conditioning for several hours to several days, said Spears. To help families afford a new A/C system, Cornerstone offers third party financing. Options include 18month terms with 0 percent interest, and payments for as little as $60 a month on financing with 60-month terms. If your A/C system is at the end of its warranty period, give us a call. We have a large selection of equipment in stock, and there are some excellent rebates being offered by our manufacturers that will save you hundreds of dollars, said Spears. And remember, Spears adds, that your A/C is a home appliance, just like your refrigerator. All appliances have a life span and dont last forever. Cornerstone was founded in 2006 as an air conditioning service company. It moved to its 4-acre site on Land O Lakes Boulevard in 2011, and the following year added plumbing services. In 2014, it expanded again with electrical services. Spears credits her companys growth to its commitment to outstanding customer service, and also because its employees exemplify her companys values. We hire people who are genuine, honest, trustworthy, clean-cut, and live their life with good ethics and morals, said Spears. Most employees are local people who live in our service area, and they are very committed to their work and community.Cornerstone phones are answered 24/7, and technicians are available around the clock, including weekends and holidays.

F irst responders are a tight-knit group. Its that feeling of camaraderie that attracted Liam Symmonds, a firefighter and paramedic in Pasco County, to the Bexley community in Land O Lakes. Liam, his wife, Keisha and their three young daughters moved to Bexley last year from Trinity. Turns out, Liam is in good company, because Bexley is home to about a dozen first responders who work throughout Tampa Bay. Since moving to their new neighborhood, Liam learned that two of his co-workers also live in Bexley; one of them just a few doors down from the Symmonds family. Liam was so impressed with his homebuying experience at Bexley, and with all the community has to offer, that he encouraged another friend and first responder who works in Tampa to make the move to Bexley. Ive also met several other firefighters and police officers around the community, either at neighborhood events or at the pool, Liam said. For the Symmonds, Bexley is an idyllic place to raise a young family. Bexley has a great vibe, he added. We love all of the amenities, the parks and the events that are held within the community. Its so much more than just a regular neighborhood. Bexley takes its inspiration from nature. With 1,825 acres of pastoral ranch lands, mature woodlands and cypress wetlands, Bexley offers miles of multi-surface Avid trails for biking, jogging or walking. Fit Stations are placed along the trails for exercisers who want to work out while enjoying the great outdoor scenery, or take their workout regimen to the next level. Around the community, kids spend hours on the custombuilt playgrounds; sports lovers of all ages enjoy Mud, Sweat and Gears Park for soccer or football games; and Bexleys BMX bicycle pump track lets daredevils try out new tricks. Theres even the BarkYard Park for four-legged family members, with separate spaces for big and small dogs. As a volunteer soccer coach, Liam also appreciates living so close to Mud, Sweat & Gears park, where he can kick the ball around with his daughters, ages 11, 8 and 5. The fact that his girls can walk or ride their bikes to nearby Bexley Elementary School, located within the community, is also a convenience for Liam and his wife. Plus, Liam has a short, 3-mile commute to work. The first responders who live in Bexley bring a great sense of fellowship to the community, said Pam Parisi, vice president of marketing for Newland Communities, the developer of Bexley. As we prepared for Hurricane Irma, many of the first responders were there to lend a helping hand to their neighbors by putting up storm shutters and making sure families were ready. Bexley is a place where neighbors look out for each other, added Liam. You just dont find that everywhere.

Weve had tremendous success in Asturia, selling over 100 beautiful homes in this much-desired community on State Road 54, said Sales Manager Kristin Wilson. We have just 45 homes to go, and expect all to be gone by the end of the year, with many families closing before the holidays. Because most families want to move into their new home by the end of the year, Ashton Woods has received permits from Pasco County for its remaining homes sites in Asturia This saves our buyers up to three months in the building process, said Jillian Harris, Ashton Woods community sales manager in Asturia, a master-planned community in Odessa. Our designers have put together beautiful combinations of flooring, countertops, design features and colors that will excite the vast majority of buyers, she said. Plus, we have a great combination of homes that convert flex space to extra bedrooms, add bonus rooms and extra baths, and have great outdoor living areas with front porches and extended lanais. While construction is underway on many homes, Ashton Woods buyers are still able to select flooring, countertops, cabinets and other nonstructural customizations on several homes that will be completed in November and December. We are known for our affordable personalization at the Design Studio, and families who want to pick out their finishes and colors are reserving these homes right now, said Harris. INVENTORY HOMES Ashton Woods offers traditional oneand two-story homes in its traditional home series. All feature open floor plans, large living areas, beautiful master suites, high-end finishes and lots of storage. Homes have two or three-car garages, and many back up to private conservation lots.

The versatile Odessa plan has three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths in 2,243 square feet. The larger Naples plan offers four bedrooms, three baths in 2,321 square feet. Also ready now are three, two-story homes with two-car garages, including the Ferrara model home at 2,890 square feet with its four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The 3,362-square-foot Athens is the largest home Ashton Woods builds in Asturia, and boasts up to five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. AFFORDABLE HERITAGE SERIES Many first-time homebuyers and downsizing families choose the Heritage Series.

GREAT SCHOOLS For families with children, Asturia is a very popular community because it is zoned for some of the best schools in Pasco County J.W. Mitchell High, Seven Springs Middle and Odessa Elementary, said Harris. Asturia is the ultimate choice for buyers considering the many masterplanned communities along State Road 54. Buyers prefer Asturias smaller size of just 550 homes, compared to thousands being built in neighboring developments, and appreciate that construction will not be going on for years. People especially like that our homes are not on top of each other, said Sales Manager Wilson. Asturias developer did a great job laying out its streets, so it doesn't look like a cookiecutter community.

It affects adolescents. Children. Families,Â” she said. There have been 1,072 opioid overdose deaths in Hillsborough County since 2012, Murman said. The county also has seen a 24 percent increase in opioids over a period of five years. Â“ThatÂ’s a direct result of the fraudulent marketing of the drugs and the excessive amounts of drugs shipped into our county by these defendants,Â” Murman said. Â“Hillsborough County is leading the state in the number of babies born addicted to opioids,Â” Murman said. Â“That is totally unacceptable.Â” There were 579 cases of babies addicted to opioids reported in Hillsborough County in 2015, she said. Â“For me, itÂ’s personal.,Â” Murman said. Â“My sister, who was addicted to painkillers, committed suicide.Â” At the news conference, Moore said he was involved in helping to resolve the BP oil spill. Â“What we have here is a pill spill,Â” Moore said. Â“Close to 40,000 people in your county are opioid addicts.Â” Moore characterized the problem as a Â“ticking, ticking time bomb.Â” Â“We want these companies to pay to clean the pill spill,Â’ Moore said. Moore challenged a perception that some may have about the types of people who die from opioid abuse. ItÂ’s not just a problem faced by people who live on the streets, he said. Â“ItÂ’s somebodyÂ’s 19-year-old college student. Â“ItÂ’s a 35-year-old lawyer. Â“ItÂ’s a housewife,Â” Moore said. State attorney Andrew Warren, who also spoke at the news conference, agreed: Â“ItÂ’s a public health crisis. It does not discriminate.Â” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister, weighed in, as well. He put it like this: Â“We must dry up the supply. This is not an epidemic weÂ’re going to arrest our way out of.Â” HillsboroughÂ’s lawsuit follows a national trend for local governments to fight against the distributors and manufacturers of opioid medications. The Pasco County Commission voted in January to become one of several plaintiffs in litigation that seeks to replicate the kind of payouts attorneys won in the late 1990s against the tobacco industry. Pensacola-based Levin Papantonio is representing Pasco County. The law firm is part of a consortium that is pursuing lawsuits in several states including West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. In 2016, Pasco County had 165 drug overdose deaths, and 120 were related to opioids.OPIOID, from page 1A older sister, to attend and graduate from the University of South Florida. After college, Doyle worked as an IT specialist locally. He was forced to quit his career as lingering vision issues prevented him from staring at a computer monitor all day long. Â“It was pretty tough,Â” Doyle said, of having to give up IT work. Not sure where to turn next, the concept for FREEZINda suddenly popped in his head while he basked in the sauna at the New Tampa LA Fitness one spring day in 2016. Â“ItÂ’s kind of weird how, like, when doors close, another one opens,Â” he said. Once he had the idea, the next step was to figure out how to get it to market. Doyle leaned on a minor degree in entrepreneurship, as well as advice from several family members who own businesses to help FREEZINda off the ground. Â“I kind of figured out my way from there,Â” he said. As a sole entrepreneur, Doyle works from his Wesley Chapel home office, where he can facilitate supply chain duties between a commercial kitchen in Oldsmar, and a copacker and fulfillment center in Texas. HeÂ’s had to learn how to navigate other aspects, including patents and trademarks, and ensuring the product is compliant with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. HeÂ’s also had to figure out innovative ways to market his product and generate more sales. Â“ThereÂ’s quite a bit to owning your own business,Â” said Doyle, who works six days a week. Â“ThereÂ’s so many different areas, from fulfillment to marketing. ThereÂ’s so many different areas, itÂ’s unreal.Â” FREEZINda is offered in retail nutrition and mom-and-pop stores as far away as Texas and California. It is also sold in Florida. Locally, it can be found at Total Nutrition USF, 2720 E. Fowler Ave., in Tampa. ItÂ’s also available on Amazon and several other nutrition-focused websites. Next month, Doyle plans to introduce new packaging and a new FREEZINda formula thatÂ’s sugar-free, and substitutes sea salt for baking powder. HeÂ’s searching for a food broker, too, to help promote FREEZINda to additional chain wholesalers, retail stores and independent wholesalers. Â“IÂ’m hoping to pick up more traction, with better retail boxes and a little more enhanced formula,Â” he said. He also dreams of appearing on the hit Emmy Award winning reality show Â“Shark Tank.Â” He applied in January and made it through a couple rounds of casting interviews before talks dried up. While Doyle aims to be successful in business, he also wants to help people to become healthier.

Â“Generally, with elections, the best indicator is history, so when weÂ’re talking about previous times, the most recent thing to go back to would be the last midterm, which would be in 2014. Â“It pains me to report that the turnout was less than 15 percent. Â“IÂ’m optimistic that weÂ’ll do better, we, as the electorate, but only time will tell,Â” Corley said. Â“Midterm primaries are generally lackluster turnout,Â” he added. There has been a slight spike in registration, but only about 5 percent, he said. Corley also noted that Â“there has been a lot of anecdotal evidence of a youth voter surge, between 18 and 29 year olds,Â” but he said, he has not been seeing it. Â“Compared to the same time in 2014, itÂ’s about on par. That really, really surprised me,Â” Corley said. Pasco County has slightly less than 347,000 voters, making it 12th largest in Florida. Of those, there are 134,824 registered Republicans, 108,520 registered Democrats, 100,637 registered as No Party and 2,791 registered as Minor Party. Corley said there has been substantial interest in election security. Â“If someone would have told me prior to the 2016 election, we would spend pretty much every waking moment since that November election focusing on, intensely, becoming hyper-vigilant on all things security Â— both physical and cyber Â— I would have said, Â‘No, youÂ’re crazy.Â’ But, here we are.Â” Recently, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who is running for re-election, made national headlines by saying that Russia had penetrated FloridaÂ’s election systems. Corley said it is difficult to respond to NelsonÂ’s statement. Â“ItÂ’s really, really challenging because IÂ’m not sure exactly what Senator Nelson is alluding to. I know the Department of Homeland Security has sort of publicly refuted his comments. Of course, far be it for me to correct a senator on the intelligence committee. I just know of no information.Â” Corley went on to say: Â“We have worked extensively with our state and federal partners. WeÂ’re talking about the FBI, even the National Guard, but particularly the Department of Homeland Security.Â” He also noted that in 2017, the elections were declared critical infrastructure. Â“We now have a seat at the table right next to nuclear power plants, for example, because how much more critical can you be than the underpinnings of our democracy?Â” Corley said. The Department of Homeland Security has offered a myriad of services for advice, counsel and assistance. Â“I canÂ’t tell you, for obvious security reasons, and so thatÂ’s the balance, trying to reassure voters that weÂ’re doing everything that we can to fortify the elections and letting them know thereÂ’s always a Plan B. Â“For security reasons, I canÂ’t tell my wife. I canÂ’t tell my dog. I canÂ’t tell anybodyÂ” he said. Corley also noted that Pasco has added three new early voting locations. Â“Early voting clearly has become very, very popular,Â” he said. Â“We added Alice Hall. We added the Florida Hospital Ice Center complex. We jokingly say we literally and figuratively have the coolest early voting site. We added the Odessa Community Center,Â” he said. Vote by mail is popular, too. Â“We have record numbers of Vote by Mail. WeÂ’re almost at 70,000 vote by mail ballots that went out. Â“There are literally, tens of thousands of ballots, sitting on coffee tables or on kitchen tables. All they have to do is fill out a few ovals and shoot it back to us, and it could change any race,Â” he said. Â“WhatÂ’s the old adage? Â‘We get the government that we deserve,Â’Â” Corley said. Â“Everyone remembers the infamous 2000 election. Everyone remembers, it came down to Florida,Â” he said. With 6 million votes cast, Bush had a lead over Gore of 537 votes. Corley said what many people donÂ’t realize is one fact that he Â“almost couldnÂ’t make up.Â” The number of Pasco voters skipping the presidential race that year was Â‘1776,Â’Â” Corley said, adding Â“#Irony.Â”ELECTION, from page 1A FREEZINda contains mixing agents that bind to form a texture that mirrors a sweet icy, syrupy sorbet.

16A Faster tter Back to be r. r. sco | W Central Pa We e sley Chapel Jonesing for the return of high school football? Heres a look at all the Friday night matchups for teams in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area. All Week 1 games are at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 24, unless otherwise noted.HILLSBOROUGH COUNTYSt. Petersburg Catholic Barons at Carrollwood Day Patriots (7 p.m.) Both teams come off losing seasons, but the Patriots feature a large senior class and one of the areas top quarterbacks in senior Chris Butash. Freedom Patriots at Steinbrenner Warriors The Warriors have reigned supreme in this matchup the last three years (and hold the series lead 4-1). However, the Patriots will have arguably the best player on the field in senior receiver/safety Jeremiah Ashe, who boasts over a dozen Division I FBS scholarship offers. Gaither Cowboys at Chamberlain Chiefs The Cowboys strong running attack (262.5 yards per game in 2017) will be imperative to keep the Chiefs offense and senior quarterback Tyler Riddell off the field; Riddell, a University of Akron commit, threw for 30 touchdowns and just four interceptions last season. PASCO COUNTYBishop McLaughlin Catholic Hurricanes at Shorecrest Prep Chargers (7 p.m.) Last time these teams met was in 2013, where the Hurricanes were shut out 40-0. The Hurricanes should have better luck this time around, with Shorecrest Prep coming off a 1-6 campaign. Cypress Creek Coyotes at Gulf Buccaneers The Coyotes are seeking its first official win in program history after it was forced to forfeit its 12-0 victory against Gulf last season. Land O Lakes Gators at Citrus Hurricanes Gators first-year head coach Chad Walker faces a relatively manageable test against a Hurricanes squad that has just six seniors and is without several key contributors from last season.Pasco Pirates at Hudson Cobras Pasco won last years matchup 22-10 and holds the overall series lead, 6-2. A victory here would be a good start for the Pirates, who are seeking their first winning season since 2014. Sunlake Seahawks at Wesley Chapel Wildcats Wesley Chapel handily beat Sunlake last year (42-24). Doing so again likely wont be as easy, as the Wildcats have lost some of the countys top offensive and defensive players from 2017, including Isaiah Bolden, Dexter Leverett, Malik Melvin and Austin Wittish. Wiregrass Ranch Bulls at Zephyrhills Bulldogs Two of Pasco Countys top squads square off in what should be an exciting, back-and-forth affair. Adding fuel to the fire: Former Zephyrhills head coach Reggie Roberts is now an assistant at Wiregrass Ranch. LATER WEEK 1 GAMES:North Florida Christian (Tallahassee) at Zephyrhills Christian Warriors (Aug. 31, 7:30 p.m.) A good barometer for both teams coming off eight-win seasons and appearances in the FHSAA Class 2A playoffs. Donahue Catholic Shamrocks (Ave Maria) at Academy at the Lakes Wildcats (Sept. 7, 7 p.m.) The defending FCAPPS eight-man state champions shouldnt have much trouble against the visiting Shamrocks; the Wildcats won last years contest 36-0.

Before that, player tryouts and evaluations will take placeHailey Stricker already has collected a fair number of medals and trophies competing in youth tournaments throughout Tampa Bay. The 12-year-old from Land O Lakes is seeking an addition to her trophy case as a member of the Clearwater Jr. PGA All-Star team. The 10-member all-star team will compete on Aug. 26 in the PGA Jr. League North Florida Section Championship at Orlandos Grand Cypress Golf Club. Earlier this month, the group won a sectional qualifier at Apollo Beach Golf Club, besting a handful of other all-star teams from Tampa, Sarasota and Odessa. A top finish this weekend would allow the team to advance to the PGA Jr. regional tournament in St. Augustine. Winners from 12 regional tournaments across the country then earn a spot in the seventh PGA Junior League Championship in November in Scottsdale, Arizona. Stricker, whos been golfing since age 8, already has made a name for herself within the Greater Tampa Bay Junior Golf Association. Over the past two years, shes collected five top-three finishes for her age group. That includes a pair of first place titles she won last October and November, at Wentworth Golf Club and Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club, respectively. Orlando will mark the longest distance that Stricker has traveled to compete in a golf tournament. Shes optimistic about the teams chances, even against tougher competition. Im looking forward to our team pulling through it and winning, so we can go to St. Augustine and do that tournament, said the seventh-grader, who attends Rushe Middle School. Stricker is one of just two girls on the Clearwater Jr. PGA All-Star team.She was named to the select squad after strong showings all summer in the PGA Junior League at Westchase Golf Club, in Tampa. Stricker considers it a special honor. Its kind of cool because I tell people Im on the all-star team, and theyre proud of me. I just feel really good about it because Ive practiced and worked hard for this moment, she said. Her grandfather, Brian Stricker, is enjoying the moment, too. Hes the one who encouraged the young golfer when she showed an interest in the sport four years ago. She kind of took to (golf) in a natural way, her grandfather said. She can stand up on the tee and, when she gets a good swing on the ball, she can hit the ball 160 yards straight. She has a pretty well-rounded game, and she just has a passion for it thats really impressive. Stricker said she plans to play golf in high school and definitely wants to play in college. Her ultimate goal? To play on the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) Tour, she said. Stricker appears to be on the right path for playing at a high level someday, according to Michael Cestone, who operates the Cestone Golf Academy at Westchase Golf Club. The golf instructor said Stricker has great promise and a very good skillset. She has all of the basic fundamentals of the game, said Cestone, who nominated Stricker to the Clearwater all-star team. She has a good swing. She can chip. She can putt. She can do pretty much any of the shots that you need to play golf its just a matter of getting better.Cestone noted Stricker regularly shoots in the high 80s and low 90s from the ladies tees.He very soon foresees Stricker reaching the high 70s and low 80s a striking feat for a young girl. If she stays on the track that shes on, shell play college golf, Cestone said. Whether she wants a DI (Division 1) or D2 (Division 2) school, thatll depend on how much time shes willing to put into this game, Cestone said. COURTESY OF BRIAN STRICKER Sept. 7 and Sept. 14, at Land O Lakes Heritage Park, 5401 Land O Lakes Blvd. Tryouts begin at 8:30 a.m., both days. The league is open to men over 60 years old and women over 55. For safety, players must demonstrate a minimum level of playing ability running, throwing, hitting, catching. Games are played Friday mornings through mid-December. League fees are $25. For information, email NTBSS2016@aol.com, or call (813) 528-5664. High school football kickoff week

CHRISTINE HOLTZMAN.Mark Martin, of Zephyrhills, left, and his wife, Amber, pose for a picture with the dog that they adopted during the Clear the Shelters event on Aug. 18 at Pasco County Animal Services in Land OÂ Lakes. Amber said she knew ÂCharlie,Â a Jack Russell mix, was the one for them because he was very timid, and he appeared to need extra patience and love to trust people again, which they are happy to provide. By Christine HoltzmanSpecial to The Laker/Lutz NewsPet lovers had a chance to add a new member to their family without paying adoption fees during a Â“Clear the SheltersÂ’ event at Pasco County Animal Services, at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land OÂ’Lakes.The animal shelter, along with the nonprofit group Friends of Animal Services Inc., hosted the event as part of the national pet adoption drive. The drive, launched four years ago, is spearheaded by the television media company NBC Universal, and sponsored by CatÂ’s Pride and HillÂ’s Pet Nutrition. Shelters across the country taking part in the event either reduced or waived pet adoption fees. The Pasco shelter waived the adoption fee for the dozens of available cats and dogs, and required only the purchase of appropriate licensing for a new pet. Normally, adoption fees are $70 to $85 for dogs and $40 to $50 for cats, which includes spay/neutering, vaccinations, microchip, heartworm testing for dogs, and FIV and feline leukemia for cats. Rachel Stever, the education and outreach coordinator for the shelter, said this was the second year the shelter participated, and she expected about 300 people to attend. People began lining up two hours before the doors opened and, by the time it did, a crowd of about 100 had gathered, Stever said. During the first two hours of the event, 16 adoptions had occurred and 11 were pending, she added. Pasco County Animal Services became a Â“Save 90Â” shelter in 2012, meaning that its goal is to save 90 percent of the animals that are brought to the facility. In addition to getting adoption fees waived, those attending the event could pick up swag bags provided by Pet Supplies Plus, complete with pet food samples, treats and coupons, and a spin the wheel game for a chance to win a prize. Friends of Animal Services, the nonprofit support group of Pasco County Animal Services, was there, too, showing off its memorial tree. Those making a $100 donation receive an engraved leaf on the memorial tree. All donations support the shelter.Â‘Clear the SheltersÂ’ makes both pets and people happy Pasco County dispatch operator K.c. Pearson, of Port Richey, cuddles the kitten that she will soon officially adopt during the Clear the Shelters event. Pearson plans to name the kitten Psi. She already has a cat named ÂZetaÂ that she previously adopted from the shelter. Molly Petrocco, of Hudson, and her husband, Ian, have a meet and greet with ÂSassyÂ during Clear the Shelters. The Petroccos were at the shelter looking to adopt an older dog, and they wanted to get to know the 7-year-old Shepherd mix. Hanging out in the Feline Showroom, 12-year-old Mikaylah Chimara, of Zephyrhills, left, holds a kitten named ÂFlash.Â Her 8-yea r-old sister, Bella, center, holds ÂShy,Â and her 10-year-old sister, Alicia, cuddles with ÂRocket.Â Their mother Nicole, who brought the girls to the event as a surprise, said that they would be taking ÂFlashÂ home. Rachel Stever, the education and outreach coordinator for Pasco County Animal Services, cuddles a miniature Dachshund-Chihuahua mix that was just adopted during Clear the Shelters. Stever estimated that roughly 300 people would pass through its doors in pursuit of finding a new addition for their family. The shelter waived the normal adoption fees, and Pasco County residents were required to purchase the appropriate licensing.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued more than 7,500 permits, including an additional 1,313 countywide permits, as a method to help manage the alligator population. Alligators are a conservation success story in Florida. They were included on the original federal endangered species list in 1967. Conservation efforts allowed the population to rebound, and they were removed from the list in 1987. Today, the state alligator population is estimated at 1.3 million alligators and has been stable for many years. For more than 30 years, the Statewide Alligator Harvest Program has provided sustainable hunting opportunities throughout the state. The FWC establishes management units with appropriate harvest quotas based on research and proven science to ensure the long-term well-being of the alligator resource. Recreational alligator hunting is just one part of the FWCs overall approach to managing the species. The FWCs Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program is another. People who believe a specific alligator poses a threat to people, pets or property should call the toll-free hotline at (866) 392-4286.

The answer: Although tremendous strides have been made in Advanced Hearing Aid Technology, those cost reductions have not been passed on to you. Until now... MDHearingAiduses the same kind of Advanced Hearing Aid Technology incorporated into hearing aids that cost thousands more at a small fraction of the price. Over 300,000 satis ed MDHearingAid customers agree: High-quality, FDA-registered hearing aids dont have to cost a fortune. The fact is, you dont need to spend thousands for a hearing aid. MDHearingAid is a medical-grade hearing aid offering sophistication and high performance, and works right out of the box with no timeconsuming adjustment appointments. You can contact a licensed hearing specialist conveniently online or by phone even after your purchase at no cost. No other company provides such extensive support. Now that you know...why pay more? btnfrt A study by the National Institute on Aging suggests older individuals with hearing loss are signicantly more likely to develop Alzheimers and dementia over time than those who retain their hearing. They suggest that an intervention such as a hearing aid could delay or prevent this by improving hearing! Can a Hearing Aid Delay or Prevent Alzheimers and Dementia? TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR 45-DAY RISK-FREE TRIAL! Hearing is believing and we invite you to try this nearly invisible hearing aid with no annoying whistling or background noise for yourself. If you are not completely satised with your MDHearingAid, return it within 45 days for a FULL REFUND.
