Public Safety officials and county engineers are down to three recommendations on the long-term recovery efforts at the sinkhole site on Ocean Pines Drive:  Option No. 1: Install a 6-foot tall “wrought-iron style” decorative fence and access gate around the sinkhole with deadend signs, at an estimated cost of $65,000  Option No. 2: Build the same fence around the sinkhole, with two, 70-foot “hammerhead” turn-arounds, at an estimated cost of $242,000  Option No. 3: Build the same fence around the sinkhole with a cul-de-sac on each side, at an estimated cost ranging from $1.7 million to $2.2 million Kevin Guthrie, the county’s assistant administrator for public safety, outlined those possibilities with homeowners at a March 10 community meeting at Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park. Based on conceptual designs, the county would need to purchase three houses to install a cul-de-sac. That option also would likely require renaming a portion of Ocean Pines Drive. For a turn-around option, no additional homeowners would be displaced. The county would need to purchase only the area needed for the turn-arounds from homeowners, not their entire properties. Officials said the main purpose for those two options is to ease access for garbage trucks and emergency vehicles, which presently are forced to drive backwards to exit Ocean Pines Drive. If the county installs just fencing and landscaping — the cheapest option — Ocean Pines would remain closed off at the site of the sinkhole. Previously discussed options — such as connecting the sinkhole to Lake Saxon or rebuilding the roadway with sheet piles driven underground — have since been deemed too risky by the county’s geotechnical consultant, Intertek-PSI. At the meeting, residents were encouraged to provide feedback and jot down comments to be considered by the Pasco See SINKHOLE, page13A Sinkhole solution down to three optionsBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comStudents across the nation walked out of classrooms on March 14, in a protest against gun violence and a call for greater action by Congress to keep students safe. In some cities, protests were marked by students leaving their school campuses, carrying signs and chanting for greater legislative action regulating the sale of guns, particularly assault-style rifles, such as the one used to kill 17 people in a Valentine’s Day shooting spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. During the walkout at Wiregrass Ranch High School, 2909 Mansfield Blvd. in Wesley Chapel, the mood was subdued. A large contingent of students gathered in the school’s courtyard, observing a minute of silence for each of the 17 people killed at the high school in Parkland. At Wiregrass Ranch High, before reading the names, 16-year-old Bella Adams, who had organized the walkout, read a statement. By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comA project to build two upscale, premier office buildings will get a $6 million loan from Pasco County. The Pasco County Commission approved the loan agreement with Atlanta-based Land Investment Partners at its March 14 meeting in Dade City. No tenants are pre-signed for the office space. However, if certain performance goals in leasing the buildings are met, the entire loan could be forgiven. It is initially an interest-only loan, with a 10-year term. Each three-story building, described as Class A, will provide 75,000 square feet, for a total of 150,000 square feet of premium office space at the southeast corner of Suncoast Parkway and State Road 54. The site is part of the Suncoast Crossings development property, and is north of Mettler Toledo. The manufacturing company is building a 250,000-square-foot building in Northpointe Village. Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said she thinks that intersection offers an excellent example of development. “I wish all the corners of all our interstates developed this way,” she said. County officials estimate the project will produce 400 new jobs, and add about $43 million annually to the county’s gross product. Jobs from the project are expected to generate nearly $28 million in total salaries from direct and indirect employment.See LOAN, page13A She recalled how Wiregrass Ranch High students celebrated Valentine’s Day that day. At Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, however, she said, “a former student opened fire with an AR-15, which had been legally obtained, and killed 14 students and three teachers. “More were injured, and all were terrified,” she said. Students who were lucky enough to get home from school that day “went shaking and crying,” she said. Adams said the walkout at Wiregrass Ranch was intended to honor those who had died and also to express “outrage at the relative inaction of our state and federal governments regarding gun control. “This year alone, nearly 2,800 people have died due to gun violence or gun-related violence,” she said.“This is not a partisan issue, nor is it something limited to adult discussion. Our schools are targets. Our lives are at risk. Nobody will stand up for us, the students of America. Nobody will speak for us, the children with long lives ahead of us. It now falls to us, the youth that are too often pushed aside and overlooked, to bring attention to gun control until our government finally acts. Starting today, we will be the change, and we will not stop until this purpose is fulfilled,” Adams said.While Adams read the names of the victims, those in the courtyard remained silent. Some, including Taylor Horvath and Marisa Paul, bowed their heads, signaling their respect for the victims of the shooting rampage. Adams wasn’t the only one with a message that day. A group of several male students stood near the school’s flagpole, where two of them held a sign that read: “Why punish the responsible gun owner for the government’s failure to act?” In another part of the crowd, Zachary Bosch held a sign that said “Disarming us will not protect us.” Bosch said he thinks schools could pre-B.C.

AREY, MD American Board of Ophthalmology LEONARD CORTELLI, JR., MD American Board of Ophthalmology ALLEN PUSATERI, MD American Board of Ophthalmology 2A March 21, 2018By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comConstruction of the diverging diamond interchange at Interstate 75 and State Road 56 now has an estimated cost of $40 million.That’s $16 million more than the original estimated cost of $24 million. Despite the higher cost, construction is still expected to begin this summer. The retrofitted interchange is expected to take two years to three years to complete, said Bill Jones, who is the director of transportation development for District 7 of the Florida Department of Transportation. The Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization approved the increased cost at its Feb. 22 meeting in New Port Richey. The good news for Pasco County is the additional $16 million is not expected to affect any other road projects within the county. The state transportation department plans to take the money from a reserve fund, said Craig Casper, the county’s MPO director. At one time, the project had a 2024 start date, but the state transportation department moved it ahead nearly six years. “We’re excited about the project getting started,” said Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore. The interchange is expected to ease the rush-hour gridlock as vehicles maneuver on and off I-75, at one of the busiest junctures along State Road 56. Tampa Premium Outlets, the Cypress Creek Town Center, Florida Hospital Center Ice, and the future residential community of Brightwork Crossings are boosting retail and residential development in the area.The diverging diamond interchange provides multiple lanes of traffic operating in a crisscross pattern, with limited traffic signals.Casper said the projected construction costs increased when it was discovered that additional ground stabilization would be required. The design will include retaining walls, traffic railings, a shoulder barrier wall, and a permanent sheet-pile wall, according to the state transportation department’s request for the cost upgrade. The bridge that crosses I-75 will be redesigned with additional lanes on the ramps. Road signs and lane markers will help guide motorists through the diverging diamond interchange, with speed limits dropping to 35 mph on the approach to the interchange.Price nearly doubles for ‘diverging diamond’ FILEThe diverging diamond interchange relies on multiple lanes with a crisscross pattern, and fewer traffic signals.By Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comConstruction on the State Road 56 extension is on track for its scheduled completion in late 2019, according to Florida Department of Transportation officials. The approximately 6-mile extension will give motorists a new four-lane route between Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills. Work began in February 2017. City planners in Zephyrhills are looking ahead to the project’s completion, and its impact on development. “We have a lot going on over here already,” said Todd Vande berg, Zephyrhills planning director. “It’s going to be a gamechanger with State Road 56 coming here as a four-lane road.” But, Zephyrhills officials also are pursuing an additional extension to State Road 56 that would link to State Road 39. They requested $1 million in the Florida 2019 budget to fund a planning study for the project. Legislators are expected to approve a budget by March 9. The budget then would go to Gov. Rick Scott, who has line-item veto authority. Added connectivity helps the entire area, Vande berg said. “We could have a true, multicounty arterial road,” he said. Current roadwork will extend State Road 56 from Meadow Pointe Boulevard in Wiregrass Ranch to U.S. 301 in Zephyrhills. A 10-foot wide multi-use trail will run along the south side of State Road 56. A 5-foot sidewalk will be installed on the north side. Seven-foot bicycle lanes will be striped off in each direction. Traffic signals are planned at Morris Bridge Road, at its new intersection with State Road 56, and also at U.S. 301 where it will connect with the new extension. New residential and commercial projects are anticipated. Four developers are planning masterplanned communities along State Road 56. The Zephyrhills Municipal Airport also will benefit from the project. The airport is undergoing upgrades. About 440 acres adjacent to the site also are being prepared for future development, and will be marketed as site-ready. As of Feb. 20, a checklist of milestones from state highway officials on the State Road 56 extension included:  15 retention ponds, of 17 total, are nearly complete  About 75 percent of the stormwater drainage system is installed  The first three layers of asphalt has been laid on nearly 2 miles of the 6-mile road  About 3 miles of concrete sidewalk is complete  About 1 mile of the multi-use path is complete The westbound segment of the bridge work over New River also is finished and work is underway on the eastbound segment. For more information, visit Road 56: 6-mile extension moving forward FILEConstruction crews work on medians for the State Road 56 extension from Wesley Chapel to Zephyrhills. Pasco County commissioners approve business parkBy Kathy Steeleksteele@lakerlutznews.comThe Pasco County Commission liked the business park, but couldn’t stand its proposed name. “Vibrant Sun (Business Park) would sound like I’m going to a casino,” Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore said. So, instead of being called the Vibrant Sun Business Park, the new development site will be known as Overpass Business Park. The business park, which will be located on 91 acres at Overpass and Old Pasco roads, has been approved for 2.2 million square feet of office and industrial space. The county’s Office of Economic Growth submitted the project as part of its efforts to provide “site-ready” parcels for industrial and business park developments. Such sites are offered on speculation. By taking care of land use and zoning matters, county officials believe these types of parcels are developed sooner. The site is in an area of northeastern Pasco that is quickly developing with new residential and commercial projects, including the Epperson and Mirada master-planned communities. Advanced manufacturing or a research facility would be an asset to the area, Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano said. “It puts us in a tremendous position to create jobs,” Mariano added. Some area residents, however, are worried about growth, traffic, loss of property values, and encroachment of industrial into rural neighborhoods. Jean Ann Jakes spoke against the project during the hearing before the Pasco County commissioners on March 14 in Dade City. She also objected to the project previously at the Development Review Committee meeting in January. A handful of other residents also raised concerns. However, the review committee recommended approval of the project. The business park won’t fit in with the surrounding area, Jakes said. “Everybody else is agricultural and residential,” she said. “It’s not compatible at all. It’s going to cause more traffic. There is nothing light industry around us.” Traffic will only get worse, Jakes added, noting that school buses pick up and deliver students to area schools. “I’m sure Old Pasco Road is going to be widened,” said Pasco County Commissioner Ron Oakley. “It should be widened. It needs to be four-laned already.” The Florida Department of Transportation is widening State Road 52, east and west of Interstate 75. The state agency also plans to build a new interchange at Overpass Road and I-75. Old Pasco Road intersects State Road 52, west of I-75. That stretch of state highway is being widened from two lanes to six lanes, from west of Old Pasco to east of Corporate Boulevard. There are no immediate plans to widen Old Pasco Road, but county officials said right-of-way for the widening would come from the business park, not from area residents’ home sites.

Mr. Bolt, as he was known at the elementary school, joined its staff in 2003 as a music teacher. He remained in that role until this school year, when he became a behavioral specialist. Wesley Chapel Elementary Principal Stan Mykita, who joined the schools staff about 18 months ago, said he immediately thought of Mr. Bolt when he had an opening for a behavioral specialist. I knew he was perfect for the job. I knew he had a passion for kids with trauma. Hes done an unbelievable job with those kids, Mykita said. Whatever it took to get kids involved, he was going to get kids involved, Mykita added. The school set aside two hours for the celebration of life open house, to allow those who wanted to honor Bolt to come to the cafeteria, leave cards and letters, console one another and express their sympathy to Mr. Bolts family. A video played on a continuous loop, featuring the many roles of Mr. Bolt. One portion of the video featured him singing a solo, from the musical Newsies, during a performance at the Center for the Arts at Wesley Chapel. Frame after frame in video shows Mr. Bolt smiling surrounded by children, colleagues, family and friends. In one shot, hes wearing a Ghostbusters costume. In another, hes working the book fair. Another frame featured a letter by a former student, Trunk Nguyen. In the handwritten note, she says Mr. Bolt has been part of her life since she was in second grade. She credits him for helping her to build her confidence and for encouraging her to join the Weightman Middle School band. When Mr. Bolt died, she wrote, it truly almost broke all of my heart, seeing a big inspiration to me leave the world. His colleagues describe him as someone who was always helping with something. People didnt realize how much Mr. Bolt did, said Denise Tucker, a fifth-grade teacher. He would organize the kickball game, the fifth-grade picnic, she said. For the end of the year field trip, he would collect the money, purchase the tickets and order the T-shirts, she said. He did all of those things, so we could teach, Tucker said. He took care of the details. Whatever was necessary, he did. School counselor Jennifer Asaro said Mr. Bolt touched so many people. He was always an advocate for the kids, the teachers. Any function that we had here, he was part of whether it was dances, the character parades, the Christmas musicals, chorus. He ran clubs. He just really cared about all of the kids, she said. He also was involved with the schools All Pro Dads club and the school PTA. Cindy Harper, the first principal at Wesley Chapel Elementary, hired him to join the elementary schools staff. She recalls receiving the enthusiastic recommendation he received from his former supervisor, who encouraged her to hire Mr. Bolt. It was a decision she never regretted. He made the music classes fun, said Harper, who drove from Dade City to attend the celebration of life in Wesley Chapel. People of all ages were at the gathering to honor the teacher. They hugged one another. They waited in line to offer condolences to the family. Before the celebration, many wrote notes or signed posters that were on display near the entrance of the cafeteria. A poster, created by students, offered a glimpse of how much he mattered. Thank you for being the best teacher, ever, one student wrote. We miss you, wrote another. You were the best music teacher, another added. Staff members also praised their former colleague. I will always remember your smile and positive energy, one wrote on a poster. You were a great team player, added another. Thanks for all you did for our children, our community, wrote a third. Mr. Bolt was named the teacher of the year at Wesley Chapel Elementary in 2016 and went on to become one of the three district finalists for Pasco County Teacher of the Year. In a video featuring his accomplishments, he was credited with setting up a 21st century music classroom with embedded technology at the school. He also helped institute the schoolwide Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) clubs, and helped to raise $100,000 for technology in the schools classrooms. He was known for his commitment to offering an engaging learning environment, where all children felt welcome. He also was a generous colleague. When Kim Mahoney was named Wesley Chapel Elementarys teacher of the year, she said Mr. Bolt kind of took me under his wing. He helped her prepare her packet for the districts competition, and she like Mr. Bolt was named a district finalist, too. He was an amazing man. He did everything and anything around this place, Mahoney said. He was loyal, positive and passionate. He was a staple to our school, Mahoney said. Mr. Bolt was survived by his spouse, Duane Guy; his sons, Jose Guy-Bolt and Juan Guy-Bolt; his sisters, Sherry Bolt, Carol Sedoris and Robin Bolt; and his brothers, Robert Bolt and Thomas Bolt.

But, first they need to wait for the results of a seven-month pilot study to test the use of carts and pickup schedules. My vision is to expand this as quickly as possible to the rest of the county, said Pasco County Commission Chairman Mike Wells Jr. Its exciting that were doing this. Two haulers Waste-Aid Systems Inc., and Waste Connections (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions) reached agreement with Pasco to target households in two areas of the county. The haulers will provide containers, and schedule pickup days. Pasco County commissioners approved the pilot study on March 14 at their meeting in Dade City. The countys cost is about $118,000. Participants will receive letters in April if they are in the pilot study. And, 1,500 carts will be delivered by May 1. Initially, the county will collect baseline data from the countys current schedule of twice-a-month pickup for recyclables. Residents provide their own containers, which are identified with stickers supplied by one of six haulers operating in Pasco. The study then would determine if recycling would increase if residents receive twice-a-week garbage and once-a-week recycling collection. The pilot program will end in October, and county commissioners will receive a report in November. The study will collect data on the tonnage, and the rate of participation from residents. Pilot study participants also will receive educational materials, and observations will be made by the haulers to see if contaminants, or non-recyclable materials, are placed in the carts. Haulers also will handle repairs and replacement of carts. Haulers will find out what numbers theyll be dealing with, said Flip Mellinger, the countys assistant county administrator for public infrastructure. Its a learning opportunity for us. County commissioners had discussions on increasing the frequency of recycling services at four workshops held between May 2015 and April 2017. A citizen survey conducted in 2017 got 7,500 responses, with 84 percent in support of once-a-week recycling service. And, 58 percent said they would like a recycling cart to be provided. County officials at the time said about 27 percent of residents recycled. Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said residents moving to Pasco County often come from cities and counties that already recycle. They are shocked when they see our lack of recycling here, she said. County officials anticipate presenting an update on the study after three months. County commissioners will be looking for opportunities to expand recycling quickly. Theres no doubt its going to be successful, said Wells, Im not trying to be funny, but it cant be any worse.Pasco is testing a new recycling program Baked Chicken, Stuffed Pepper & Tomato, Gyro, Briam, Mousaka, Dolmades, Spanakopita, Souvlaki, Large Greek Salad w/Potato SaladANY GREEKENTREE Dine In Take Out Drive Thru CateringKIDS EAT FREE ALL DAY MONDAYDine in only.

S Pasco Sheriff’s Office unveils app to help stressBy Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comPasco Sgt. Matt Rosenbloom has handled countless distressing calls throughout his 12 years in law enforcement. “I’ve seen things that people shouldn’t see out there,” he said. Sometimes it takes several days for him to get past a particular incident. Witnessing the death of a child, for instance, takes a heavy toll. It’s something many deputies aren’t mentally prepared for emotionally, the sergeant said. “We’re trained to deal with the physical dangers and to anticipate knowing that there’s those physical dangers,” Rosenbloom said. “What we are not often aware of are the long-term emotional health dangers that come along with the job.” To help its members cope with those psychological scars, the law enforcement agency has developed a new smartphone app called Pasco Sheriff’s Office PTS (PostTraumatic Stress). The app offers resources, including mental health tools and videos for those who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress. The app features a stress assessment questionnaire and also provides contact information to those who can provide help, including community partners such as BayCare and the University of South Florida. Other crisis resources include the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and the National Law Enforcement Officers Hotline. The tool was developed in-house with help from some outside contractors, as part of a $150,000 pilot program related to post traumatic stress in law enforcement and ways to address the issue. The funding was included in last year’s state budget that was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott, after Rep. Danny Burgess and Sen. Wilton Simpson submitted a budget request on behalf of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. Along with the app, funding has been spent on several different projects to address the issue from both the member and the family side, including offering training for its members and their families regarding emotional survival and coping techniques. At a March 15 media conference, Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said post-traumatic stress is a “hidden secret” and “never really been spoken about” among law enforcement circles. He said the disorder has led to broken families, alcoholism and other problems among deputies, because the issue wasn’t addressed head-on. The current, sometimes volatile climate for law enforcement doesn’t help matters, Nocco said. This year, so far, more than 30 officers nationwide have been killed in the line of duty. The sheriff elaborated: “For a law enforcement deputy…you’re going from one person’s worst moment of their life, continuous all day long and then you go home. “We’re called upon during people’s worst times, and then what’s going on more and more in society is — no matter what we do, it is never good enough. “I can tell you that is overwhelmingly stressing our members now that they know no matter what decisions they make, it’s going to be second-guessed the following day,” he said. Pasco Sheriff PTS is now available through the Google Play store and soon will be in the Apple store. Rosenbloom said he has already utilized the tool on a few occasions and has found it helpful.AN APP THAT’S EASILY ACCESSIBLE“The quick access is great because I would say for some deputies that immediately after the incident that adrenaline dumps, and now all of a sudden they’re experiencing these feelings. “They could go on the app right then and there, or it may come days later, where they may start reliving that experience and saying, ‘Is this normal?’ and go back on the app,” Rosenbloom said. Meanwhile, it provides “a good foundation” for deputies unfamiliar with post-traumatic stress and its effects, Rosenbloom added. “There may be newer officers…who are not sure whether they’re feeling the right thing or whether they should still be feeling what they’re feeling after a critical incident. “This app breaks it down, asks questions and, in the end, it gives you an assessment of whether what you’re feeling is correct or not,” Rosenbloom explained. The app is also meant for deputies’ families. Rosenbloom’s wife, Lena, has utilized the app to access support for herself and her children. “You need just a couple of taps to get you help,” Lena said, noting its user-friendly capabilities. “When you’re in a crisis, the last thing you want to do is try and find a phone number, pull out a card and (find) the EAP (Employee Assistance Program) number,” she said. While mainly geared toward law enforcement and their families, the sheriff encourages anyone to use the tool, if he or she needs guidance or help. The sheriff specifically mentioned the tool’s usefulness for other first responders, such as firefighters, as well as teenagers, parents and teachers. “We want everybody to go on here and use this,” Nocco said. “We want to make sure they see it’s available, because the intent when we asked this of the Legislature was to say, ‘Look, we’re going to build it, we’ll develop it, but at the same time, it’s not solely for the Pasco Sheriff’s Office. It’s going to be used for everybody.’” The Sheriff’s Office will not use the app to collect data or information on users, Nocco said. The app also will be updated continuously as new strategies come along in dealing with post-traumatic stress. The goal is to provide assistance in time of need, Nocco said. “Everybody feels like they’re swimming out at sea, and there’s nobody to help them; here’s another life preserver that we’re throwing out there, to help them get help, to make them feel better and to realize that they’re not alone,” Nocco said. KEVIN WEISSPasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said post-traumatic stress is a hidden secret in the law enforcement community. Along with the app, the Sheriffs Office is working on several different projects to address the issue from both the member and the family side, which includes available training regarding emotional survival and coping techniques.

He overdosed on five separate occasions, only to be saved by first responders who administered him naloxone, or Narcan, an emergency treatment that counteracts the life-threatening effects of opioid overdose. If I didnt have Narcan, he said, I wouldnt be able to sit here and share my experience. I wouldve never had a shot to recover. Parent Lisa Conca also has observed the Narcans life-saving effects when her son overdosed on heroin. I had never even heard of Narcan until that day he overdosed and was taken to the hospital, Conca said. Narcan saves lives and gives our kids another chance to help them on the road to recovery. These comments came up during a community discussion on opioid overdose prevention on March 8 at North Tampa Behavioral Health, which is located in Wesley Chapel. The event was organized by the Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention. The panel discussion was part of a community-wide effort to provide education about opioid overdose and what individuals can do to save the lives of those suffering with the chronic illness of addiction. Much of the panel addressed how to access and administer Narcan. Narcan is the first and only FDA-approved nasal form of naloxone for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. The medication helps blocks the effects of opioids on the brain and restores breathing. Opioids include heroin and prescription pain pills like morphine, codeine, oxycodone, methadone and Vicodin. Often the reason (over-dosers) end up passing is because the brain does not have oxygen. This medication helps alleviate that, said Szilvia Boos Salmon, a pharmacist with Tampa Poison Control. Along with the nasal spray, naloxone is available in an injectable form. The Pasco County Sheriffs Office is one of a number of growing law enforcement agencies to carry naloxone for possible overdose calls. Pasco Sheriff Cpl. Sherry Johnson-Tandy said the agency has had over 60 deployments of Narcan. Each deployment was successful in preventing an overdose-related death, she said. In addition to reversing overdoses, the medication is also for deputies and first responders who may become exposed or have incidental contact to illicit fentanyl or heroin at a particular crime scene. Johnson-Tandy demonstrated how to safely and effectively administer both the nasal spray and injectable forms of naloxone. Free samples of Narcan were later distributed to the audience. Johnson-Tandy said its onset time is anywhere between 1 minute to 30 minutes. It works almost just like an EpiPen, she said. The best thing about this is, if you give it to someone and they dont need it, it cant hurt them, she said, adding if someone overdosed on cocaine or stopped breathing for another reason, it wont have adverse effects. The Narcan medication might be needed more than ever. Opioid overdoses increased by roughly 30 percent across the U.S., in just 14 months between 2016 and 2017, according to a new report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).The CDC called the data a wake up call to the fast-moving opioid overdose epidemic. It recorded 142,000 overdoses in hospital emergency departments across the nation, between July 2016 and September 2017.The problem is growing locally, too, experts say. There were 165 overdoses in Pasco in 2017 matching numbers from the 2010 and 2011 prescription pill crisis, said Capt. Mike Jenkins, who oversees the narcotics unit for the special investigations division at the Pasco Sheriffs Office. Other topics covered during the session included how to prevent opioid addiction and avenues for long-term treatment of people who are dependent on opioids. Start in the schools early, and educate kids as to how dangerous mom and dads pill bottles are, said New Port Richey-based attorney James Magazine. Rochelle Zwicharowski, a support specialist with the St. Petersburg-based Recovery Epicenter Foundation, said those who have been rehabilitated need to share their experiences, to reduce the stigma.Town hall sheds light on opioid overdose prevention

Wiregrass Ranch High sanctioned the walkout. “I believe that students should have a voice to express their concerns, their opinions,” said Wiregrass Ranch High Principal Robyn White. Brenda Hodson, a school volunteer at Lacoochee Elementary in Dade City, made the trek from East Pasco to attend the Wiregrass Ranch High walkout. “I’m here to support the students,” Hodson said. In the aftermath of the Parkland shootings, Linda Cobbe, spokeswoman for Pasco County Schools, said the district has asked principals to be sure their buildings are as secure as possible, and asks everyone on school campuses to be vigilant. “If you see something, say something,” Cobbe said. The district also is working with local law enforcement to comply with Senate Bill 7026, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott. That calls for having a school resource officer in every school. The district now has 37 school resource officers and will need 47 more to meet that requirement, Cobbe said. She noted the state did not adequately fund the mandate, so that will mean “taking funds from other parts of our education budget, from classroom funds, other operating funds. “Finding those qualified people and getting them trained in time to be in schools next year is going to be a huge challenge for the sheriff’s office,” Cobbe said. Senate Bill 7026 also gave local school districts the option of arming nonteaching personnel, who meet training requirements. Pasco County Schools won’t exercise that option, Cobbe said. “We don’t plan to arm any of our staff,” she said. After the Wiregrass Ranch High walkout, Adams said she was happy that it drew a big crowd. “I was very glad that they maintained their silence, and that it was respectful and peaceful,” she said, despite the media presence, which had the potential of changing the tone of the gathering. “There were some students who came out to protest our protest,” Adams said, but that didn’t bother her. “I understand that other people have different views, and they are entitled to those views,” she said. On the other hand, she said she’s been somewhat taken aback by some of the comments she’s read by adults that have been posted on social media. “It’s interesting to see how many of them believe that us, teenagers, only participated in that event to skip class,” she said. One comment she saw described protesting youths as being “liberal sheep.” “The backlash of some people … is honestly inspiring me to do more,” Adams said. “It’s not a discussion limited to adults. This is affecting us as much as anyone else.” She said she and other students from Wiregrass Ranch, Wesley Chapel and Wharton high schools all plan to participate in the March for Our Lives event planned for March 24. Marches are planned in different locations, including Washington D.C. The Tampa Bay version includes a rally and march beginning at 10 a.m., at Kiley Garden, the elevated section of Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, in downtown Tampa. County Commission.Various concerns were raised, from the county’s mitigation costs to how it intends to fund whichever solution is chosen. The county already has spent more than $1 million for initial cleanup and stabilization of the sinkhole site. Guthrie said it hasn’t been determined how the county will pay for whichever option, though use of public funds may be a possibility. Some residents questioned why a fence even needs to be installed at the sinkhole site. Guthrie stressed that’s a matter of public safety as open waterways touched or owned by the county must be cordoned off. He guaranteed permanent fencing, at the very least, will be installed due to potential liability issues for the county. “You can take this to the bank: The county commission, 5-0, is going to put a fence around that,” he said. Guthrie noted the county is currently in litigation with two homeowners and their insurance companies who haven’t taken responsibility for cleanup and securing the areas of private property affected by the sinkhole — an issue that may not be resolved for “probably decades.” “If they’re not going to take responsibility, the county has to step in. And, we have to ensure the safety for the citizens,” Guthrie said. The sinkhole opened on July 14, 2017, at 21825 Ocean Pines Drive. It eventually swallowed two houses, a motorcycle and a boat. Seven additional homes nearby were also condemned as unsafe, based on subsurface conditions and other geologic anomalies. Displaced homeowner Dottie Benschoter was among about 30 people attending one of the two community meetings. The 78-year old and her husband had lived at their Ocean Pines Drive home for more than 40 years — before it was condemned in July. The massive sinkhole was a shock for her family and fellow neighbors, forcing them to uproot their lives. “Especially at our age, we never dreamed anything like this would happen,” she said. “It’s affected my neighbors. We’re all affected mentally, because one day you’re living your life, and one day it changed completely. We had to move everything in one day,” Benschoter said. She continued: “(The county’s) trying their best, but we still don’t have any answers. They still haven’t made their decision with what they’re doing. They said we have to demolish our homes and pay for it ourselves.” Guthrie called the entire sinkhole situation “really upsetting and frustrating.” He added: “I know the homeowners are frustrated,” he said, “but at the same time, we have remediated this hole to the point that we can.” Guthrie and his staff will present their findings to commissioners at their March 27 or April 11 meeting, at which time a final decision is expected.SINKHOLE, from page 1A “It’s nice and window-y and very pretty,” said Melanie Kendrick, the county’s program administrator for the Office of Economic Growth. Under agreement terms, the county will wipe out $3 million of the loan if leases are obtained for 75 percent of the first building. The same terms, and elimination of the last $3 million, will apply to the second building. Land Investment Partners will receive no reduction in principal if the goals aren’t met. For the project to be profitable, developers estimated rents should be in the range of $32 a square foot to $33 a square foot. But, in the current market for that area, the rents realistically would only be $27 a square foot to $28 a square foot, according to attorney Clarke Hobby, who represents the investors. “We’re bridging the gap to make it economically feasible,” Hobby said, of the loan. Pasco’s Office of Economic Growth is pursuing a strategy of building a more diverse economic base that includes industrial and office projects that are more often seen in urbanized areas. If this project is successful, Hobby said Pasco could “get more urbanized projects to come to Pasco.” LOAN, from page 1A WALKOUT, from page 1A A large contingent of Wiregrass Ranch High School students walked out of their classrooms on the morning of March 14, as part of a national walkout to protest gun violence and demand greater action by Congress to address the problem. Zachary Bosch held a sign expressing his belief that disarming people will not resolve the problem of gun violence. He thinks teachers should have the option of arming themselves, as long as theyre properly trained. Follow @LakerLutzNews on Twitter


14A March 21, 2018 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comWhenever the Land O’ Lakes Gators needed a score, Sydny Nasello was there to answer the call. And, she delivered often, racking up 120 goals during her four-year varsity soccer career. In this past season alone, the senior tallied 45 goals and 13 assists — guiding the Gators to the regional finals, a 23-3 record and undefeated (7-0) district mark. Her skills on the field — combined with remarkable statistics — have since garnered attention statewide. Earlier this month, Nasello was named Florida Dairy Farmers Class 3A Player of the Year. She was a finalist for the 2018 Miss Soccer award, too, finishing third in voting by coaches and the media in Florida. Locally, Nasello was a shoo-in for the Sunshine Athletic Conference Girls Soccer Player of the Year, also announced this month. The recent accolades recognize Nasello’s commitment. “When I first heard about it, it was just like everything I’ve been working for in life and just in soccer — like everyone else can see it and it’s paying off,” the forward/midfielder said. Nasello added she’s proud to “leave a mark” at Land O’ Lakes, and to be an influence to the program’s younger generation. She was one of a trio of Gators seniors, also including Brooke Hannigan and Morghan Craven, who played all four years on varsity. During that time, the Gators went a remarkable 90-10-3 with three Final Four appearances, and captured three district and regional crowns apiece. “I don’t think anyone has ever done that at Land O’ Lakes,” Nasello said, matter-of-factly. Her role transformed, too. “I went from freshman year, being like the little kid — super nervous, having all these older role models — to being the role model for the freshmen and the sophomores,” she said.A University of South Florida signee, Nasello has sights set on a professional career in the National Women’s Soccer League. Someday she hopes to represent the United States in the Olympic Games, too. She looks to be on the right track for each. She was one of just 24 players to take part in a training camp for the under-18 national teams late last fall in California. The U-18 team provides a transition for a number of players that could possibly make up the core of the team that would attempt to qualify for the following U-20 women’s World Cup, or even contribute to the current cycle of U-20s, according to the United States Soccer Federation. “It was very beneficial,” Nasello said of last year’s tryout. “Basically you can compare yourself to the best of the best around the world, see where you stand, see what you need to improve upon, see what these girls are doing better than you, so you know where to start.” Lauded for her speed, versatility and flashy attacking on-ball style, Nasello has worked on improving her runs off the ball “because that’s what my college coach wants me to do.” She credits Gators head coach Vicky King as a key influence in her development as a player. “She’s never let up,” Nasello said of her high school coach. “Like, she’s probably harder on me than she was any other player, and sometimes I would think, ‘She’s just being mean or whatever,’ but really she’s just pushing me to do my best in all areas of life, whether it’s on or off the field.” King — who’s coached multiple Division I soccer players over the past three decades — describes Nasello as an “excellent player” who’s “really matured and grown over the last few years. “She can be a difference-maker in the game. She has a nose for the ball and can play anywhere on the field,” King said. “She’s really driven to succeed,” the coach added. Part of it stems from her family’s ties to the game. Those familiar with the local high school soccer scene are well aware of the Nasello name. Her two older sisters, Lacey and Holly, both were standouts at Land O’ Lakes and eventually played college ball, at University of Tampa and Point University (Georgia), respectively. Younger sister, Lexy, also plays soccer and her father, Tim, played college soccer. Nasello strived to follow in the footsteps of Lacey — now a sophomore at University of Tampa — who she was teammates with at Land O’ Lakes for two seasons, in 2015 and 2016. Lacy was regarded as a stellar defenseman, with goal-scoring prowess. “(Lacey) was basically the best of the best,” Nasello said. “She was the big, aggressive one, and I always looked up to her and always wanted to be who she was, what she was on the field, played at what her level was, so we used to work out all the time together in the summer.” Being around other skilled, experienced players on the team also helped, her high school coach noted. “We’ve had some other very talented players, and I think her observing them also helped her grow into a better player, as everyone always has someone to grow and improve like that,” King said. Nasello is currently playing for the Tampa Bay United club soccer team and gearing up for the Elite Club National League championships in May. Nasello is eager for the next phase of her soccer and academic career. “I’m so excited to start college,” she said. Her future USF coaches are also eager for her to arrive.“Sydny is an amazing talent,” USF head coach Denise Schilte-Brown said in a released statement. “She is arguably the most creative attacking player to come out of the state in quite some time…We are tremendously excited to get her here on campus and continue her development at the next level.” SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SEND SPORTS NEWS TO KWEISS@LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM CHECKTHIS OUT Saint Leo University athletic director Francis X.

INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More B Rachel Odhner Longstaffs earliest memory of South Africa is an engine fire and an aborted plane flight near the end of a long journey from Pennsylvania to the city of Durban in the KwaZulu Natal province. I remember being carried from the plane by a huge black man under an umbrella, said Longstaff. I think he was the first African I had seen. She was a 3-year-old. Her father was a Swedenborgian minister sent to South Africa to establish a theological school for Africans. The year was 1948, the year the white South African government voted to establish apartheid. The brutal system institutionalized discrimination against blacks, and the strict separation between the races. For the next 12 years, Longstaff grew up in a divided world one where she enjoyed a happy childhood amid white privileges, but also witnessed the harsh reality of apartheid. As a child, she didnt always understand what was happening. But, as an adult, Longstaff began exploring her feelings of guilt and shame for not being more aware. The result is her book, In the Shadow of the Dragons Back, published in November by Culicidae Press. Its dedication is to the boys and girls of South Africa, and in memory of her older brother, Pehr Odhner. What I wanted to do was show the contrast that had always distinguished my life and Africans under apartheid, Longstaff, a retired librarian, said of the first book shes written. I think I wanted people to know what it was like. It was a unique slice of history, she said. She struggled with how to tell her story. She didnt feel qualified to write as an expert on history and politics. So, she chose to share her experiences in South Africa through a series of personal vignettes not always told in chronological order and through family photographs. Each vignette is followed by excerpts and references to news articles, interviews and commentary on laws and events that give context to the apartheid regime. The books title refers to the Drakensberg, or the Dragon mountains of South Africa, which Longstaff describes as being wild and beautiful. One of the mountains is known as the Dragons Back. To her, a dragon is something to be afraid of and something that portends evil. As I thought about what happened, I grew up in the shadow, and it was apartheid, she said. I grew up in a police state. No wonder I was such a nervous creature. The government wasnt alone in enforcing apartheid. Even neighbors could be watching for missteps. There was a young boy, Victor, who was the grandson of the familys cook, Miriam Nyandu. Longstaff and an older brother often played with Victor. But, a neighbor complained to their mother. You have to go and play with him behind the fence, Longstaff said her mother told them. We thought it was because we made too much noise. She realized later it was because the neighbor was offended that white and black children touched one another. An older sister, Jeanette, walked to a bus stop for a ride on her first day of school. A sign at the bus stops bench said Europeans Only, but her sister didnt think that applied to her, as an American. Another sign, saying Whites Only was written in Afrikaans, a language Jeannette didnt speak. So, she stood off to the side with the black maids, and servants, who traveled daily in and out of Durban. Whites, Africans, Coloureds (mixed raced) and Indians lived in designated residential zones. They had to live outside the town because black people were separated, Longstaff said. Under apartheid, South Africa approved pass laws for nonwhites, requiring them to carry identity cards. They could be arrested for not producing them when asked. The police were pretty brutal, Longstaff said. Longstaffs mother and father at times violated behavioral norms. Her mother would drive an African ministers wife to the hospital, and allow the woman to sit next to her in the front seat. She would be scolded and told that she was giving them ideas, Longstaff wrote. Her father and his African secretary, Billy Khoza, once quietly tried to help someone escape from South Africa. One day the South African secret police showed up at the house to search through her fathers office, looking for evidence of his support for the banned political party, the African National Congress. They said Khoza was a Communist and an ANC party member. Her father reluctantly had to fire Khoza. Years later, Longstaffs mother invited Khoza (then a successful businessman) and his daughter to tea at their Pennsylvania home. It was quite nice, said Longstaff because it would have been forbidden in apartheid South Africa. Longstaff said her father had to learn to navigate through apartheids rigid rules. Otherwise the church and school could be shut down, and the Longstaff family deported, she said. When Longstaff was 16, her family returned to Pennsylvania. It was difficult to adjust to an American culture that felt foreign to her in many ways, after being away for most of her childhood. She is what is known as a third culture child, trying to straddle two separate cultures. She went on to earn an undergraduate degree from Northwestern University, and a masters degree in library and information science from Drexel University. For 20 years, she was an academic librarian at the Swedenborg Library in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. Later, she and her husband Alan moved to Florida where Longstaff joined the faculty at Saint Leo University. She is now retired. It was an annual event at Saint Leo, Focus the Nation, that in part spurred Longstaff to think about writing a book. She and other faculty members organized the program, which invited students to explore environmental and social justice through art and literature. But, she also reached out to her siblings to write about the familys collective memories of their time in South Africa. One brother had about 300 photo negatives. At that point, I said Im going to write the book myself, Longstaff said. She started her research with newspapers, including the London Times. South African newspapers were so heavily censored they werent useful, Longstaff said. I learned a lot about apartheid that I didnt know, she said. Longstaff hopes her book brings attention to press censorship especially as media reports now often are the targets of fake news charges. Thats an uncomfortable reminder from the past, Longstaff said. In South Africa, they were only allowed to print the party line, she said.

Death can occur within 72 hours after symptoms appear.Most shelters are not equipped to deal with parvo-infected animals. The Pet Resource Center created an isolation unit solely for parvo cases. Using grant money from Maddies Fund, the center sent veterinarian Mallory Offner to Austin, Texas, for specialized training. Snoopy is now parvo-free and eligible for adoption. The center is at 440 N. Falkenburg Road in Tampa.
