ManionIf theres one thing that Jeff Olsen, pastor of Grace Community Church, knows for certain its this the church that he leads is physical proof that God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, beyond all that we ask or imagine. Indeed, thats part of a Bible verse that Olsen said summarizes the churchs entire quest to build a permanent home at 7107 Boyette Road in Wesley Chapel. This project was beyond us. It took more resources, more help, more finances than we could do on our own. But, were doing it because we want to reach beyond ourself to others a church thats for others, Olsen said. The church moved into its new home in July, but is hosting its grand opening celebration on Sept. 9, with services planned at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., a free barbecue lunch at noon and a pizza night for its teen ministry starting at 6 p.m.See CHURCH, page11A B .C.

ManionThe Pasco County Commission has continued a request to rezone the Ballantrae Professional Center until Sept. 17, to sort out issues relating to the centers current uses, the proposed zoning and who has authority to request the proposed zoning. The center, on the south side of State Road 54 at the intersection of Hunting Bow Circle, in Lutz, is currently zoned as a PO-1 Professional Office District. The request, by the Ballantrae Center Owners Association, is to change the designation to a PO-2 Professional Office District, which allows a wider array of uses, said Denise B. Hernandez, zoning administrator/special project manager for the county. The county planning department and the Planning Commission recommended approval of the rezoning.See REZONING, page11A CHRISTINE HOLTZMAN Enjoying tunes at the Summer Sock Hop Dancers at the Summer Sock Hop at the Lutz Senior Center are living proof that age is just a number and youre only as old as you feel. About 90 people turned out for the dance, on Aug. 25, at the senior center, 112 First Ave., N.W., in Lutz. The senior center is open to people age 50 and older, and in addition to hosting special events each quarter, the center offers an array of classes and other programs, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

ManionFloridas voters went to the polls last week in a primary that captured national attention when Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum stunned political prognosticators by defeating the predicted winner Gwen Graham. If he wins in November, Gillum would become Floridas first black governor. On the Republican side of the ledger, Congressman Ron DeSantis endorsed by President Donald J. Trump carried the day, defeating Adam Putnam, a longtime Florida politician, who had served as Floridas Commissioner of Agriculture and five terms in Congress, representing Central Florida. Locally, 85,907 voters cast their ballots in Pasco County, representing a 24.84 percent turnout of the countys 345,879 registered voters. The turnout was considerably higher than I expected and, in this case, Im never more happy to be wrong, Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley said, via email. The 2018 Primary turnout represented a 66 percent increase from the last midterm primary in 2014, Corley said. Its apparent the voters are more enSee PRIMARY, page11A Results are in for Floridas primary Wesley Chapel church aims to extend Gods grace to othersBarbara Westling, of New Tampa, left, is excited as she accepts a door prize that she won.
with this country? Â“As all these kids in debt get older and they get wiser, theyÂ’re going to look back on this and say, Â‘There was something wrong there. I had to spend 15 years of my life paying for the rest of my college loan. Well, thatÂ’s going to be huge, and theyÂ’re going to remember the people that were for them, trying to do something with their costs.Â” Â— Adam Racker, 33, Zephyrhills, put it like this: Â“The real shame of it is that a lot of independents are not voting in this because they think this is just a primary for governor, surprisingly. Independents have no idea that they can even vote in the school board (election). They think, Â‘Oh, itÂ’s an Adam Putnam or Rick DeSantis, or a Gwen Graham vs. Andrew GillumÂ’ and then theyÂ’re not heard.Â” Â— Tisha Wright, 48, of Zephyrhills, said Â“education is big to me. I donÂ’t know why more people donÂ’t follow school board elections and whatÂ’s going on with schools.Â” She also came out to support Joy Gibson for Florida State Senate District 20. Â“I think the biggest thing that she says is family over politics. SheÂ’s concerned about families. I know she has a good heart and cares for families. ThatÂ’s what her campaign is all about Â— family values.Â” Â— Wilma Moore, of Lutz, who drove a school bus for 30 years, said she never misses an election. She said she was interested in every race on the ballot. Â“TheyÂ’re all really important,Â” she said. Â— Craig Cooler, of Lutz, said: Â“I just think itÂ’s an important civic duty to come out and vote and express your concerns.Â” He thinks itÂ’s important to vote in primary elections. Â“I donÂ’t like it when they get to the time when itÂ’s the main voting. Â‘Basically, theyÂ’re like, weÂ’re voting for the lesser of two evils.Â’ They didnÂ’t voice their opinion at the beginning,Â” Cooler said. Â—Compiled by B.C.

Malieri Colon-Rivera, MD, FACOG Jenny Buck, MD, FACOG Nay Hoche, MD Pasco and Hillsborough voters express their viewsThe Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportVoters in Pasco and Hillsborough counties headed to the polls on Aug. 28 to cast their votes in FloridaÂ’s midterm primary. Some shared their thoughts with The Laker/Lutz News at polls in Land OÂ’ Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills and Lutz. HereÂ’s a brief synopsis of what some of them had to say: Â— Hoyt Davis, a consultant, from Land OÂ’ Lakes, said voting Â“is one of our rights as American citizens.Â” Â— Tami Perdue, a paint contractor from Land OÂ’ Lakes, put it like this: Â“If you want your voice to be heard, you need to vote for the people you want in office. Â“Our veterans fought for us. We should use our rights that we have because of what theyÂ’ve done for us,Â” she added. Â— Robin Ankrom, a stay-at-home mom from Land OÂ’ Lakes, said Â“IÂ’m really passionate about my voting rights. Â“I believe voting for judges and for school board are just as important as other offices,Â” she said, noting judges are the ones who interpret the law. Selecting school board members is important, too, because she wants to have a say regarding Â“whoÂ’s making the decision for my childÂ’s education.Â” Â— Rick Stevens, 63, of Zephyrhills, said, Â“IÂ’m not really thrilled about whatÂ’s currently going on in Washington. ItÂ’s not always in with the new and out with the old. Sometimes we ask for change and we get it, and we donÂ’t realize what weÂ’ve done, in this particular case. Â“ItÂ’s just the primaries, so weÂ’ll see what happens. Â“Hopefully some changes are made and messages sent, maybe.Â” Â— Henry Keithley, 44, of Zephyrhills, said, Â“IÂ’m tired of the Trump rhetoric. I think DeSantis, that commercial he ran was just like completely riding (TrumpÂ’s) coattails Â— I just feel like that stuff has gone far enough. ItÂ’s not helpful. ItÂ’s certainly not uniting. PutnamÂ’s done a great job as commissioner of agriculture, I thought, so I just think heÂ’s more of a reasonable, level-headed person that can do the job, whereas, I donÂ’t know how I would feel about DeSantis.Â” Â— Bruce Hinkle, 72, of Zephyrhills, a Navy veteran and staunch Democrat, expressed the need to find solutions for affordable health care and education for future generations. Â“When I got out of the service you could be on minimum wage Â— working as a mechanic or maybe cleaning cars in a car dealershipÂ— and have enough money for college. Not today. I mean, kids are graduating with so much debt. ThereÂ’s something wrong with that. You look at that and the scenario with our health care, whatÂ’s wrong BRIAN FERNANDESFranz Warner, a local firefighter, is seen outside the Land OÂ Lakes Heritage Park community center after casting his ballot on Aug. 28.Â— Franz Warner, a firefighter from Land OÂ’ Lakes, said Â“ItÂ’s everybodyÂ’s fundamental right and obligation to vote. Â“ItÂ’s somewhat sad that people donÂ’t exercise that right. I think with the state of the country and the things going on right now, that everybody needs to exercise that right.Â” B.C. MANIONEunique Bolton was voting for the first time at a precinct in Wesley Chapel, in Pasco County. She recently moved to the area from Hillsborough County.Â— Eunique Bolton, of Wesley Chapel, cast her ballot at a precinct at Bridgeway Church on Wells Road. She was particularly interested in the school board races and primary for governor. She said she always votes. Â“This is my first time here, because I just moved here from Hillsborough County.Â” And, she brought her 2-week-old, Nicco, along with her to the polling place. BRIAN FERNANDESRick Carfi voted in the Aug. 28 midterm primary at the Land OÂ Lakes Heritage Park community center.Â— Rick Carfi, a customer service representative at Publix, who lives in Land OÂ’ Lakes, put it like this: Â“You donÂ’t vote, you donÂ’t have a say. Â“IÂ’ve been voting forever.Â” B.C. MANIONPeggy Jensen, of Wesley Chapel, said itÂs important to vote to have a say in choosing the right person for the job.Â— Peggy Jensen, of Wesley Chapel, said Â“We always vote. ItÂ’s important to us that the right person gets in office.Â” To her, voting Â“is an obligation, really.Â” B.C. MANIONIrineo Cabreros, of Lutz, said voting is a right he doesnÂt want to take for granted.Â— Irineo Cabreros, of Lutz, said he votes whenever he can. Â“ItÂ’s a right I donÂ’t want to pass up or take for granted. Â“ItÂ’s my only input I have access to. Â“I always will be here. If I have a chance, IÂ’ll vote someone who might shift the scale in terms of better representation. The two-party system is a little bit flawed right now. ItÂ’s missing a lot of people that donÂ’t subscribe to either.Â” B.C. MANIONMarguerite LaPunzina, of Lutz, said she came out to vote because Âthe status quo is unacceptable.ÂÂ— Marguerite LaPunzina, of Lutz, put it like this: Â“The status quo in the state is unacceptable, and this is the first step in changing the order.Â” Â“I think itÂ’s a shame that people donÂ’t exercise their right as an American to vote. IÂ’m well into my 40s, and I remember the first time I was able to vote when I turned 18. I think it was a school board election, and I went out and voted.Â” Â“ItÂ’s the only way youÂ’re going to get your voice heard.Â”

Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comThe Pasco County Commission has approved a rezoning to allow a townhome development on the north side of Willow Bend Parkway, about a half-mile east of Land OÂ’ Lakes Boulevard, in Lutz. The rezoning allows up to 70 units. Technically, the new zoning classification would allow apartments, said Denise B. Hernandez, zoning administrator/special projects manager for Pasco County. However, that wonÂ’t occur in this case because, Hernandez said, Â“the applicant is proposing single-family attached homes that will be on fee-simple lots,Â” and Â“the applicant has agreed to record a deed restriction on the property for that to be the only principal permitted use on the property.Â” The zoning change will not take effect until that deed restriction is recorded, the zoning administrator said. Two area residents spoke against the request. They cited concerns about adding traffic to Willow Bend Parkway, which they said already has so much traffic that itÂ’s hard to get onto or off of the road. They also objected to allowing townhomes to be built in an area where the predominant development pattern is singlefamily homes on single lots. Commissioner Mike Moore said heÂ’d heard from opponents to the project, but said they thought that apartments were being proposed on the site. He said he would have opposed apartments. Michael Horner, a planning and land use consultant, represented the applicant, Dorothy Dahm Bard Trust, and the contract purchaser, Town Homes of Willow Bend LLC. Â“My client wants to build high-end, single-family attached townhomes. These are three-bedroom, two-bath, two-story, 2,000 square feet, high-end furnishing,Â” Horner told commissioners. The site has fragmented wetlands, providing the ideal opportunity to have clustered single-family homes with individual views of the wetlands, Horner said. The townhomes are expected to start at $300,000. Â“They want views. They want the double-car garage. They want the tray ceilings. They want the quartz countertops,Â” Horner told commissioners. Â“They do not want to cut grass, maintain lots, on the weekend.Â” Moore noted that the current zoning allows 70 homes to be built, and the rezoning will allow 70 townhomes. Â“ItÂ’s a wash,Â” he said. Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, agreed, noting the rezoning is not Â“a big change.Â” Starkey made a motion for approval, which carried unanimously.Townhomes approved off Willow Bend ParkwayBy Mary Rathmanmrathman@lakerlutznews.comSeptember is Library Card Signup Month, a time when the American Library Association and libraries nationwide remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card can be the first step toward academic achievement and lifelong learning.

The event is sponsored by the Rotary Club of San Antonio. The market features vendors who set up around the park, offering a variety of products, including jams and jellies, honey, produce, jewelry and quilts. One highlight this year will be live music by the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society. Those wishing to donate blood also will be able to do so, at OneBloods Big Red Bus that will be parked at the site to accept donations. Donors will receive both a free T-shirt and a checkup.

A Rotary Club member will oversee that activity. Thats a part of doing what we can for kids, said Terrie Grissom, treasurer of San Antonios Rotary Club. We are very much a community-focused club, serving the San Antonio area the best we can. The park has a playground for children and numerous picnic tables for dining. In addition to exploring the vendors, patrons are welcome to volunteer their voices for singing performances. The event is free of charge, and pets are welcome, too. Proceeds benefit causes supported by the Rotary Club of San Antonio. The club supports scholarships for students and donates food bags to the San Antonio Elementary School, among other things.

In the ongoing fight against human trafficking, several local businesses and organizations have stepped up to raise awareness on the issue. To earn the designation, the various groups issued a proclamation stating their organizations commitment to stand against human sex trafficking; provided awareness training to all employees on human trafficking; and, created a zero tolerance handbook policy for employees that engage in sex buying or human trafficking. A business has a certain sphere of influence over the folks they engage with, especially their employee population, Geoff Rogers, the chief executive officer of the institute against human trafficking said, in a recent interview with The Laker/Lutz News. The communities where weve seen the fight against sex trafficking be most successful are those who have the entire community running after it at the same time, he explained. The institute against human trafficking is urging more organizations to participate in the program, which is free. Apathy is one of the biggest problems that we face, so weve been very focused on how do we get people involved and what can they do, Rogers said. The institutes Trafficking Free Zone program launched in May. The program establishes a holistic approach a multisector partnership involving law enforcement, government, businesses, schools and community-based organizations to try and reduce the demand for sex trafficking. It also focuses on arresting and prosecuting sex buyers instead of those who are being sold, and educating community members on sex trafficking and implementing other demand reduction techniques, like offering resources for victims, as well as those struggling with sex and/or porn addiction. Rogers said those techniques are proven practices that have been used across the country. With all these different sectors of society firing away at the sex trafficking problem, thats when we begin to see the bottom drop out of demand and real substantive changes and improvement be made in the fight against trafficking within that community.

That initiative has been underway since July. Human sex trafficking has been under the microscope in Florida for some time. The state has consistently ranked third in the number of cases reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, behind only California and Texas. Tampa Bay usually ranks fourth in the state for the number of such calls. Officials have said the regions attraction as a tourism destination, along with having international airports and deep-water seaports, increases the likelihood for human sex trafficking. Hosting large sporting events and conventions also lends to the problem. Pasco County officials have worked to address the issue locally. In 2014, Pasco County Commissioners formed the Pasco County Commission on Human Trafficking to promote public awareness about human trafficking, create educational programming opportunities and advocate for strategies to aid survivors of human trafficking. That commission helped pass an ordinance in 2016 that mandates signage raising awareness of human trafficking to be posted in the restrooms and dressing rooms of sexually oriented businesses, such as adult entertainment establishments and unlicensed massage services. It also trained more than 3,000 members of the community on human trafficking through its community awareness presentations. In many respects, Pasco County is one of the leading counties in the state of Florida in the fight against sex trafficking, Rogers said. For more information, visit TraffickingFreeZone.com.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced last week that it approved the first generic drug through this new process. The second Bilirakis provision reformed the FDA Office of Combination Products, as a result of an exchange with FDA officials. This office manages the approval of Complex drug-device combination products, such as auto-injectors and metered-dose inhalers. The EpiPen is an example of a combination product. The company that manufactures the EpiPen Mylan Pharmaceuticals raised the cost of the EpiPen by 400 percent, making it unaffordable for many families. Traditionally, there has not been a generic version of the EpiPen available on the market. However, with the reforms, the FDA has announced that it has approved the first generic version of the EpiPen, used to treat allergic reactions.

And without medical care, your medical condition will likely get worse. This all-too-common scenerio is why Premier Community Health Care has established 10 convenient locations in Pasco and Hernando counties to provide affordable health care close to home for local residents who are uninsured or underinsured. PremierÂs Health Care services include family medicine for children and adults, dental care, behavioral health, womenÂs health care (including obstetrics), care coordination, case management and community outreach. ÂOur mission is to provide accessible and comprehensive health care services for everyone, but we concentrate on the medically underserved, whether they are insured or not,ÂŽ said Cheryl Pollock, chief development and communications officer for Premier. ÂFor many patients, we are often the best and most affordable option.ÂŽ About 85 percent of Premier patients are either uninsured or on Medicaid, said Pollock. Premier uses sliding-scale fees to calculate its fees, and no one is turned away. To receive discounted fees, patients must complete an application to prove household size and provide proof of income. If they qualify for a discounted fee, the cost for medical services is significantly lower than comparable private-sector care. Premier also offers dental services at its clinics in Dade City, New Port Richey, Brooksville, Spring Hill, and in Holiday at its new portable clinic at Gulfside Elementary School. ÂWith so few employers offering dental insurance, and so few people carrying it, Premier is filling a big gap in our health care system,ÂŽ said Pollock. ÂSadly, tooth decay is the number one chronic illness facing children, and it is 99 percent preventable with routine oral hygiene and dental care.ÂŽ Premier also offers patient care coordination, providing primary care physicians and coordinating patient care with specialists, home health agencies, nursing homes, hospitals and other health care professionals. Plus, its answering service offers 24-hour access to a health care provider. ÂWe work closely with local hospitals to reduce the number of unnecessary emergency room visits by transitioning patients with chronic illnesses to our primary care clinics,ÂŽ said Pollock. ÂPremier is better able to manage a patientÂs medical conditions, and help prevent new ones.ÂŽ Preventative care is emphasized at Premier with free educational programs that range from oral health education to chronic disease and diabetes self-management. It hosts health fairs throughout the year, including WomenÂs Health Day with free cervical cancer screenings in January, ChildrenÂs Dental Day in February and MenÂs Health Day in June. ÂOur goal is to get people to recognize that health care is essential, and to be proactive in addressing some of the challenges they face as part of normal day-to-day life,ÂŽ said Pollock. Established in 1979, Premier is a community-based 501c3 nonprofit organization led by a patient-majority Board of Directors. ÂThis is a calling,ÂŽ Pollock said. ÂEach team member is here because they choose to work in community health. They go above and beyond to ensure that patients are getting all the resources that are available. ÂYour health is our missionÂ is our tagline, and I personally live and breathe our mission. This is a calling for most of us at Premier, to be able to level the playing field between the haves and have nots to provide quality health care access for all.ÂŽ 352-518-2000 www.premierhc.org The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Pasco County Commission has approved a request for a borrow pit to provide fill dirt for use at Bexley by Newland Communities, a master-planned community, off State Road 54 in Land OÂ’ Lakes. The development sought approval to operate the borrow to provide up to 1 million cubic yards of sand and dirt to be excavated and hauled over a period of four years. The borrow pit will be reclaimed after the dirt hauling is completed. The infill dirt will be used for internal uses at Bexley, but some of will need to be trucked across Tower Road, which is used by the public. The borrow pit site is south of Tower Road, west of Sunlake Boulevard, and about half-mile east of Ballantrae Boulevard. The borrow pitÂ’s operating hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will not operate on Sundays or holidays. The Pasco County Planning Commission recommended approval of the request, and the County Commission approved it on its consent agenda, meaning there was no discussion of the item, at its Aug. 21 meeting. Approval also is required from the Southwest Florida Water Management District, also known as Swiftmud.Bexley borrow pit gains approvalThe Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportKeep Pasco Beautiful has been named the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Non-Profit for 2018.

Hillsborough County experienced a slightly higher turnout, with 219,118 ballots cast, representing a 26.16 percent turnout of the countys 837,681 registered voters. DeSantis and Graham garnered the most votes in the governors race among Pasco voters, while DeSantis and Gillum were the top vote-getters in that race in Hillsborough County. While many races on the ballot were true primary choices, with voters deciding which candidate should represent the Democrats and Republicans in the general elections, the races for judges and school board members were nonpartisan, meaning winners could be named if a candidate secured more than 50 percent of the vote. That happened in two of the three Pasco County School Board races on the ballot. Allen Altman and Cynthia Armstrong were both re-elected to another term, which the winner of the seat vacated by retiring Steve Luikart will be decided in the general election, with a run-off between Megan Harding and Tara M. O Connor. The Pasco race for the Circuit Judge 6th Judicial Circuit, Group 4, also will require a run-off in November between Davis Ellis and Roxanne Fixsen. In that race, none of the three candidates secured more than 50 percent of the vote. However, during the County Commissions public hearing on Aug. 21, an owner of a condo office building within the development objected to the proposed rezoning. And, that objection prompted a reaction from Commissioner Mike Moore.He owns the building. Thats not what he bought into. Thats not what he purchased. Who am I to tell him that hes got to change his zoning for something he doesnt want. Im not going to back this, Moore added.Hernandez said the rezoning request is aimed at bringing uses on the property into conformance with PO2. Going PO2 allows them to do every single use in PO1 and then add some additional uses, including private schools, post office, government buildings, barbershop, beauty salons, flower shops, those type of things, she explained. A number of current uses on the property already fall under the PO2 designation, she added. We think its consistent with the character of the area, the existing area, and were recommending approval of the zoning amendment, Hernandez said. However, there is confusion over who has the authority to request the rezoning, and also about the sites current zoning. The office park is condo-platted. A real estate agent working on a parcel came in and told the county that the development needed to be PO2 because there are PO2 uses there, Hernandez said. Stacie Mixon, speaking on behalf of the management company for the office development, said this property, in essence, was originally a PO1, then it was changed to a PO2 years ago. If you looked at the property appraisers website, all of these properties are zoned PO2, according to the website. One of the builders went to build and they were told by building permitting that its PO1, Mixon said. A lot of the owners purchased under the assumption that its PO2, she said. Tenants are in there that are supposed to be in PO2. Now, were at a standstill, Mixon said. County Attorney Jeffrey Steinsnyder said the issue wouldnt be before the County Commission if the current zoning wasnt PO1. The property appraiser is not the one who is in charge of zoning, Steinsnyder said. This board is. At one point, a portion of the office development was temporarily zoned PO2, with explicit provision that the zoning was temporary and was exclusively for Imagine Charter School, Hernandez said. That zoning was initially granted in 2008 and expired in 2012. Imagine Charter School now has a permanent location on Sunlake Boulevard. Commissioner Kathryn Starkey asked whether an individual office condo building owner could decide if they want PO1 or PO2. We dont want to shut down all of those businesses, Starkey said. Mixon said owners in the office park voted on whether to seek a rezoning to a PO2 and the majority agreed, but she did not have specific information about the vote at the public hearing. Steinsnyder recommended continuing the hearing until Sept. 17. Without looking at the condominium documents, I dont know who the legal authority to rezone this property really would be, Steinsnyder said. By delaying the vote, county staff will have a chance to get additional information from the opponent to the rezoning and from the applicants, commissioners said in voting for the delay. Olsen describes the church as a contemporary church, with some traditional elements.Were a Good News church, not just good advice. The good news is that God loves you, Olsen said, and thats the central message of its ministry. Building the 7,760-square-foot church required an army of volunteers, and, Olsen said, adding that by Gods grace, they showed up. The property was acquired in 2014, the plans were done in 2015, the site preparations were completed in 2016. The ground-breaking service was on July 1, 2017. In most churches, a traditional groundbreaking is some gold shovels, a couple of pictures and everyone walks away. That was not this project, Olsen said. We dug all of the footers on groundbreaking day. We had dozens of volunteers over the Fourth of July weekend. One of the church members had an excavator. Others brought shovels, he said. It took about 50 volunteers about six weeks to complete the footers, rebar and concrete forms, the pastor said. Over the course of the entire project, about 250 volunteers pitched in, doing everything they were allowed and able to do, the pastor said. He estimated that the volunteers completed about 50 percent of the labor on the project, saving the church between $500,000 and $600,000. We didnt do mechanical, electrical, plumbing or even erection of the steel structure, Olsen said. Besides a core group of church volunteers, other helpers came from far and wide. Crews from Carpenters for Christ, based in Auburn, Alabama, showed up twice to help. Other groups of volunteers came from Minnesota and Pennsylvania. A group of pastors helped. Boy Scout Troop 177 helped. And, a volunteer crew chief came down from Connecticut to provide guidance to volunteers from early January through late March, Olsen said. So many people did so much, Olsen said. Just when wed done all we thought we were able to do, somebody else would come, (and) somebody else was able to come until it was finished. It was exciting. It was tiring. It was wonderful to see that God could do something beyond what we asked or imagined. What a joy to be part of something like that, Olsen said. The church building features a foyer that can be used for small gatherings, a sanctuary that can accommodate 200, a preschool classroom, the pastors office and other rooms. Olsens wife, Heather, oversees the preschool that began operations in August. When I think of Grace Community, I think of a community of people who come from diverse backgrounds, but are committed to building a better community by Gods grace. We are not here trying to convince anybody that our church is more amazing than anybody elses in town, Olsen said. Weve seen an amazing God do something amazing things, and we believe he can do that in their lives. Theres a tendency, right now in churches, on sermons that are success-based and that are good advice. We are a Good News church. We declare the historical Christian faith, Gods love. The gospel is central. Grace is what we are about. You can come here weary or broken and find help or find hope, find people who care, Olsen said. As the church moves forward, it intends to look for ways to extend Gods grace to others, through a variety of programs at the church and through outreach ministries. And, while the church celebrates its grand opening, it also has plenty of space to accommodate future growth. When that might happen isnt yet clear, Olsen said. Thats a matter of Gods timing, the pastor said. Grace Community Church grand openingWHEN: Sept. 9, with services at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., followed by a free barbecue lunch at noon.

12A Faster tter Back to be r. r. sco | W Central Pa We e sley Chapel The college football season is just underway, and dozens of players from The Laker/Lutz News coverage area can be seen showcasing their skills on Saturdays in the fall. Well over 100 players from the area are a part of various programs at the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and Football Championship Series (FCS) levels, as well as Division II, Division III and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Heres a few to keep an eye on as the season progresses:JAYLEN PICKETT: Eastern Michigan University, senior linebacker HIGH SCHOOL: Zephyrhills High SchoolAfter playing in just six games last season, the 6-foot, 224-pound senior backer hopes to return to his 2016 form when he registered 30 total tackles, two interceptions and three passes defensed in 13 games then a solid contributor to an Eastern Michigan squad that achieved the programs first winning season (7-6) since 1995. The former Zephyrhills star and FACA (Florida Athletic Coaches Association) District 10 Player of the Year is also making strides off the field. This past year he was one of about 230 student-athletes selected to attend the NCAA Career in Sports Forum in Indianapolis, which provides college athletes a broader scope of the career tracks available within the sports business, particularly college athletics. AMANI ORUWARIYE: Penn State University, redshirt senior cornerback HIGH SCHOOL: Gaither High SchoolThe 6-foot-1, 203-pound Oruwariye looks to build off a breakout 2017 season where he garnered second-team All-Big Ten honors after tallying four interceptions and 12 passes defensed, to go along with 28 tackles. Mainly a rotation player before last year, Oruwariye has quietly had an impressive career at one of the nations most revered programs, playing in over 35 games since his redshirt freshman season. Meantime, the former Gaither standout is also drawing some NFL buzz. He was named No. 63 on NFL.coms Top 150 college football players to watch in 2018 generally lauded for his size and length, and overall playmaking ability.DECALON BROOKS: Florida State University, redshirt freshman linebacker HIGH SCHOOL: Gaither High SchoolThe son of NFL Hall of Fame linebacker and Tampa Bay Buccaneers/Florida State legend Derrick Brooks appears set on making a name for himself, too.Reports from spring and fall camp describe the younger Brooks as finally healthy from a nagging knee injury he dealt with all last season making flashy plays, and showing off his speed and instincts in practices.Despite his relative youth and being undersized 5-foot-10, 210 pounds DeCalon is in line for significant playing time at any of the Seminoles outside linebacker/safety hybrid spots. Production was never an issue for DeCalon when he starred at Gaither. He racked up 323 tackles, 38 tackles for loss and 16 sacks in three years on varsity. NATE CRAIG-MYERS: Auburn University, junior wide receiver HIGH SCHOOL: Pasco High School, Tampa Catholic High SchoolProjected as Auburns starting Big Slot receiver, the Dade City native is poised for a breakout campaign after posting 16 receptions for 285 yards (nearly 18 yards per catch) and three touchdowns in 14 games as a sophomore last season. Throughout the offseason and fall camp, Auburn coaches have raved about the bigbodied receivers ability to make contested catches down the field and his efforts as a blocker. The 6-foot-2, 214-pound Craig-Myers has shown some flashes of his potential as a former five-star prospect and arguably the most prized Bay Area recruit in the 2016 class. In Auburns Peach Bowl last year loss to UCF, for example, Craig-Myers hauled in three catches for 54 yards. Hes notched big plays against tough SEC competition, as well.Football talent runs in Craig-Myers family. His younger half-brother, Jayvaughn Myers (Pasco High) is a teammate with him at Auburn. Meanwhile, two of his older brothers Josh Johnson (Purdue University, Jacksonville University) and Trey Dudley-Giles (University of Massachusetts, Dodge City Law) are Pasco High alums who played both college and professional football.CHRIS FADDOUL: Florida A&M University, sophomore punter HIGH SCHOOL: Wiregrass Ranch High SchoolOnce a four-sport standout in high school, Chris Faddoul is sticking to just football in college and hes done a bang-up job with it. Faddoul stepped in as FAMUs starting punter as a freshman last season, where he quickly established himself as one of the more consistent in the Division I FCS ranks. He averaged 39.4 yards per punt, pinning 16 of his 45 punts inside the 20-yard-line. Distance also proved a strength of Faddouls, recording eight punts of 50plus yards, including a long of 55 yards. Faddoul is expected to build off his firstyear success, picking up All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) preseason honors. He isnt the only Wesley Chapel native on the Rattlers roster, either. Ellrie Allen, who graduated from Wesley Chapel High School, is a sophomore safety on the Division I FCS club. And for those wondering where Faddouls athletic prowess comes from? Look no further than his father, who competed for the 1972 Lebanese Olympic Team in high jump and javelin.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportYou donÂ’t have to be a skilled ukulele player, or a professional singer, to take part in the Ukulele Club that meets twice a month at Ukulele BrandÂ’s restaurant, at 4805 Land OÂ’ Lakes Blvd., in Land OÂ’ Lakes. Just bring your ukulele, your music stand and a singing voice to join in the jams on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. First-time players are welcome to join the club, which is a mix of seasoned ukulele players and newbies. Those who know the ropes help those who are just learning the instrument. A recent jam brought together players of all experience levels, coming from Lutz, Odessa, Land OÂ’ Lakes, Carrollwood, Hudson, Wesley Chapel and Dade City. To find out more about the club, email Dennis Pashouk at email@example.com.They jam on ukuleles Â— making music and friends SEPTEMBER 5, 2018The LAKER/ INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & MoreThe LAKER/ Lutz NEWSLutz NEWS B FRED BELLET Bob Register, left, of Wesley Chapel, along with Bruce Brand, center, (whose father, Ben, started up the business) read the mus ic charts with Jeri Shafford, of Lutz, as they play another selection during a recent jam session. Strumming his way through a Beatles song, Dennis Pashoukos, of Wesley Chapel, acts as the master of ceremonies at the Ukulele Club meetings, which are on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, at Ukulele BrandÂs Restaurant in Land OÂ Lakes. It may look like a matchup of dueling ukuleles, but all 20 members of the Ukulele Club are in harmony, as they play a piece by Bob Dylan. Bob Grindey provides vocals, as his wife, Gayle Grindey, strums her ukulele at the jam. Kent Linder of Carrollwood, far left, plays along as members jam on the back porch of the restaurant. Jean Trawatha, of Lutz, has no trouble playing along, as she and other club members make their way through the play list. Learning how to play a ukulele requires being able to control your fingers, as they move across the strings. Jeri Shafford, of Lutz, demonstrates her proficiency during a recent jam. Candy Otte, of Lutz, is a seasoned member of the club. SheÂs been playing the ukulele for about 30 years.

For Less Than$200 ADVANCEDHEARING AID TECHNOLOGYHow can a hearing aid that costs less than $200be every bit as good as one that sells for $2,250 or more? 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.
