Economic summit puts focus on education By Kevin Weiss firstname.lastname@example.org
Fostering educational opportunities in Pasco County was the primary focus of the second annual Zephyrhills Economic Summit. Doing that begins with beefing up the Pasco County school district’s career and technical education programs, said Kurt Browning, superintendent of Pasco County Schools.
“We need to put our career academies on steroids,” said Browning, one of several guest speakers at the Oct. 24 summit, at the new Zephyrhills City Hall, that brought together local education, business and government stakeholders. Based on the region’s business profile, Browning said there needs to be greater emphasis on teaching trade skills — such as roofing and carpentry, plumbing, HVAC technicians, electricians and more. “One of the things that we keep hearing
a lot about is the trades. I’m continually amazed of the number of people that stop us and say,‘I just need young men that can get up there and lay roof,’” Browning said. To meet those demands, he called for increased state funding and greater collaboration with the Florida Department of Education to create industrial certifications for those fields.The district also needs to ensure opportunities for students, not See SUMMIT, page 13A

Learning some Tai Chi moves at the library Those taking part in a recent Tai Chi class at New River Branch Library practiced some moves, including the ‘Swimming Dragon’ and the ‘fly left leg.’ Originally associated as a method of self-defense martial arts, Tai Chi is now known to have many health benefits, and the graceful, slow movement exercise is used to relieve stress, lower blood pressure, fight depression and improve balance. Bonnie Birdsall, who has been a Tai Chi instructor for 20 years, says that Tai Chi is for everyone — regardless of ability. Her students have ranged from age 8 to 101. She ends all of her Tai Chi classes with meditation, because she says it ‘settles down the chi, which is the energy that moves through us.’ This was the last class at the New River Branch Library, after a successful two-month run, but additional classes are possible in the future, according to Angelo Liranzo, the branch manager. Birdsall currently is leading Tai Chi sessions at the Land O’ Lakes Branch Library on Mondays. Above, instructor Bonnie Birdsall, far right, leads the class in a Tai Chi move called ‘Swimming Dragon’ during a recent class at the New River Branch Library, 34043 State Road 54 in Wesley Chapel. Many of those taking part in the class said they were there upon the recommendation of their doctor. Shown in the back: Margie Gordon, left, and Olympia Coleman. In the front: Joleen Patane, left.

Artistic couple opens home gallery in Wesley Chapel By Brian Fernandes
Upon entering the front door, various colors seem to emanate from all directions. The living room and dining room walls are covered with diverse paintings. The tables are decked with sculptures of different shapes and proportions. More artworks can be found in the bedrooms, too. This is the Wesley Chapel home of Bernard and Gwendolyn Brooks, who moved to the area a year ago from Washington D.C., to live closer to their family. Their residence doubles as their art gallery. The artists have dedicated their lives to teaching and exposing the world to their craft. Each grew up around art. Gwendolyn’s father, a painter, was a curator at Howard University for 33 years before retiring. She grew up painting and also developed a love for music through the piano. Although a passionate artist and musician, she felt a stronger calling to creating art. “I realized that art as well as music are disciplines that require a lot of time and energy,” she said, reflecting on the competing desires.“I couldn’t do both, so I chose art.” She pursued her education, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education from Howard University and a Master of Arts in Education/Counseling from Trinity College. She spent her career as an art teacher in Washington D.C., and in Gambia,Africa. Bernard recalled that his uncle was an artist who was quite “comfortable” in his line of work. His uncle was an art instructor and helped establish the art department at Carver Vocational High School in Baltimore, Maryland. Bernard noticed and admired his uncle’s contentment, which, in turn, influenced Bernard to pursue a life in the arts. Bernard received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Howard University, where he remained as the chief medical illustrator for more than 26 years. It was during this time that he would de-

sign the interior of local dentist offices throughout the Washington D.C., area. His artwork — known for its cotton fabric, metallic mediums and watercolors — began to gain notoriety. “I was attracting people early on that had influence,” Bernard said, of his art’s growing popularity.“I always had a captive audience.” His pieces would go on to be featured on national television shows, including “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “The Parkers.” After becoming established, Bernard continued to be an advocate for up-and-coming young artists in the nation’s capital. He often opened his home, giving many a place to stay and hiring some, as interns. The couple said their art has been inspired by international influences, noting they’ve lived in the Caribbean islands and visited numerous countries. Recently, a trip to Cuba inspired each of them to create pieces reflecting life on the island.
get a message. Gwendolyn, on the other hand, avoids controversial issues — focusing instead on positive aspects of humanity. “I like to brighten the person’s life – take them away from what’s happening in the world,” Gwendolyn said. In addition to painting, she enjoys creating dolls and handmade quilts. Stitching quilts by hand can be a tedious process, but it makes her work feel more personal, she said. The couple has had art shows around the world, and they continue to do so. In some cases, their works go on display even when they can’t be present. At home, they have two separate rooms they use as galleries for their respective works. In addition to creating art, they also appreciate work created by other artists. Their house is a showcase of ethnic diversity, with paintings BRIAN FERNANDES and sculptures from French, In this painting, Bernard Brooks pays homage to legHaitian, Japanese and Jamaican endary blues musician, B.B.

Hugh Embry Branch Library now open again on Mondays By Brian Fernandes firstname.lastname@example.org
A ribbon-cutting was held at Hugh Embry Branch Library on Oct. 29 to celebrate the fact that, once again, the library is open on Mondays. The facility, at 14215 Fourth St., is one of four libraries across Pasco County where Monday hours have been restored. The others are the Hudson Branch Library in Hudson, the Regency Park Branch in New Port Richey and the Land O’ Lakes Branch in Land O’ Lakes. Pasco County Commissioners voted in 2010 to reduce library operating hours because of plummeting revenues during the Recession. Gradually, it has been adding hours back to libraries. Pasco County Commissioner Ron Oakley, who represents District 1, did the honors of cutting the ribbon during the festivities at the Hugh Embry Branch. He also shared his thoughts about the vital role that libraries play in community life. “You see not only older people in there, but young people and families – that’s very important to me,” Oakley said. Many people need the services the library offers, said Angelo Liranzo, the Hugh Embry

Branch manager. People visit the library to check out books, but they also come to work on school assignments, conduct research for job searches, or join in the library’s recreational programs. With the restoration of funding, the Hugh Embry Branch is now open on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The additional hours allow increased ac-
cess to the amenities that the library provides. For instance, patrons can use a program called Freegal — implemented this year — to stream and download music legally onto their personal devices. Films and e-books also can be conveniently transferred to laptops, tablets and smartphones with software like Kanopy and Hoopla.
There are also launchpad tablets that kids can use to play games, which help teach subjects, such as math and science. “One of the great things about libraries is that we try to find ways to make learning seem like fun,” Liranzo said. After Oakley concluded his remarks, those attending the celebration were able to enjoy refreshments and live music.

What’s Cookin’ Looking for piecrust perfection? Check this out By Betsy Crisp
Special to The Laker/Lutz News
Maybe you are one of those who struggled making the perfect, flaky piecrust that your mother or grandmother did. I know I worked like crazy to perfect that skill, but when they came out with the prepared and refrigerated type – I was hooked! Maybe you just don’t like the typical type of crust that is used in most pies? Well, here’s something you might want to try. You can call it impossible or just sheer magic. But, the fact is, these recipes simply form the crust while the pie is baking. To me, this might more aptly be described as a cross somewhere between a cobbler and a pie. For the result isn’t really a crust, and the it’s not really crustless.

Another plus? There are recipes for both sweet and savory concoctions. There are recipes for pumpkin, apple, custard, and coconut pies, as well as those for main dishes such as quiche, cheeseburger or taco pies. I am not exactly sure where this idea originated. I have seen an old Mennonite cookbook from my Iowa grandmother’s collection that featured similar recipes. However, I’m also aware that some time back in the 1970s, a major food company began marketing a baking mix that you could keep on the shelf and draw from as needed for various recipes. Their test kitchens got busy and developed many recipes, and even printed several on the back of the box to entice consumers into using more of this versatile mixture. Betsy Crisp is a Professor Emeritus, UF/IFAS Extension – Family & Consumer Sciences.
Homemade Baking Mix (If you don’t have that prepared/packaged baking mix on hand, you can try this substiture) Ingredients: 1 cup of flour 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder 3/4 teaspoon sugar (optional) ½ teaspoon salt 1 Tablespoon oil (or melted butter/margarine/shortening) BETSY CRISP
Instructions: Combine all ingredients except fat in a large bowl (or pulse in a food processor) and mix. Add fat and continue process (or use a pastry cutter) until mixture resembles coarse meal (crumbly/size of peas). Note: Try not to make up more than you can use in one day. Once the oil is added, it does not store well due to food safety concerns.
Magic Coconut Custard Pie Ingredients: ¾ cup granulated sugar ¼ cup butter (or margarine), softened 4 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ½ cup all-purpose flour 2 cups milk 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut Whipped topping (optional) 2 Tablespoons toasted coconut* for garnish (optional) Instructions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Cream butter and sugar with a mixer (or 30seconds in a blender). Add eggs, one at a time. Add flour and milk alternately, and mix until all ingredients are just blended. Stir in coconut.
Don’t be surprised when the pie seems to shrink after chilling.
Pour into prepared pie pan (on top of a baking sheet – just in case it spills). Bake for 50-60 minutes until slightly browned on top and knife inserted in center comes out clean. It will rise up some, be light and fluffy, but still giggle. Remove from the oven. Let cool 15 minutes to 20 minutes before placing in refrigerator to chill at least 4 hours, or overnight is even better. Don’t be surprised when it starts to fall/shrink down a little. Serve with whipped topping and toasted coconut as garnish (optional) Variations: 1) Increase vanilla to 1 ½ teaspoon to 2 teaspoons; 2) add ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg and/or sprinkle on top; 3) add 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, which equals approximately the juice from ½ a lemon. Makes 1 pie, which has 6 servings to 8 servings. Note: *To make toasted coconut: Make a thin layer of coconut on a flat baking sheet. Bake at 350°F. for 4-5 minutes. Be sure to stir with a spatula after the first 2-3 minutes to help brown evenly and not scorch. This can also be done on top of the stove in a fry pan on medium low-medium heat – stirring constantly. You can store in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.

Local author hopes his story will help inspire others By Kevin Weiss
Remington Walls hasn’t let his disease define him — and he wants the same for those dealing with similar circumstances. The 18-year-old Land O’ Lakes native has lived a life without regular food or drink since he was diagnosed at 4 years old with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE), a rare, incurable disease where all food deteriorates his esophagus. His only source of nutrition has come via a hypoallergenic amino acid-based liquid formula, called Neocate EO28 Splash. The abnormal disorder has not stopped him from living a normal life, however. Remington overcame the hardship to Remington Walls become a standout varsity baseball player at Land O’ Lakes High School — and good enough to be selected to play in the Pasco County Senior All-Star Baseball game last year. He was also a solid student, earning multiple college scholarships. Remington is now a freshman a Valdosta State University (Valdosta, Georgia) where he’s studying to become an athletic trainer. He is also a volunteer assistant with the Valdosta State baseball team. Published author can also be added to Remington’s list of accomplishments. His autobiography, “Homeplate: A True Story of Resilience,” delves into his foodless life, with the hope of inspiring others. The 118-page book is co-authored by his mother, Stephanie Walls, who shares her memories and insights on coping with the disease from a parent’s point-of-view. The book will be released on Nov. 25. “Remington wanted just to kind of motivate people and encourage people that regardless of your situation, find a way to overcome and persevere.There’s some pretty powerful things he has to say in his book,” Stephanie Walls said during a recent interview with The Laker/Lutz News. The book, which was written this past summer, is particularly geared toward anybody dealing with a life-altering disease, said Stephanie, an eighth-grade language arts teacher at Cypress Creek Middle High School in Wesley Chapel. “The book is really more of an inspira-

tion from Remington’s perspective,” she said.“We can either choose to wallow over the cards we’ve been dealt in life, or we can just pick up those pieces and somehow make a way to where there is no obstacle that’s going to get in our way.” Last year, Remington’s life was thrown another curveball when his family’s insurance no longer covered the liquid formula that’s required for sustenance. Since then, Remington and Stephanie have both advocated for state and federal legislation for formula coverage for medical nutrition.They also continue to work closely with the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders (APFED), a nonprofit advocacy organization for those living with eosinophilic related disorders.

ABOUT ATTORNEY ANDREW CURTIS
Fruitland Park (The Villages) Available by appointment in Wesley Chapel
CA ALL (352) 315-0333 Trusts Are Not Exclusively For The Wealthy Attorney Andrew Curtis, Esq.
Despite popular belief, wealthy people aren’t thhe only folks who may need revocable living trusts. Attorney Andrew Curtis, whose practice concenntrates in the areas of trusts, estates and elder law, is very familiar with this common misconception. “It’s a false notion,” Curtis said. “For example,, I recently had a fellow visit my offffice whose mother had just diedd. All his mother owned was a $100,000 condo, and her will read, ‘I leave my condo to my child.’ “Although this seemed clear and simple, the chhild had to go through probate before he could sell the condo, and that leegal fee was $2,500. A revocable living trust may have avoided this.” There are many additional reasons why a revoccable living trust may be advisable for a person of modest means. Curtis outlines some of these below. 1. A trust might also allow you to “rule from m the grave” After you pass on, your assets may be distributted according to specifications made while you were still alive. Thhis prevents potentially undesirable scenarios — such as your children leaving their inheritance to people you never liked, such as theeir spouse. If you leave your assets to your kids in a lifetime trust, thhey may each use the money for normal living, but upon their deaths, the remaining assets will pass to your grandchildren or to their survivinng sibling(s) — and
not to their spouses. Further, after you are dead, the trust may protect against your spouse leaving the money to a new spouse, significant other or to an unscrupulous caregiver. 2. Tr Trusts may be extremely useful in second marriage situations If you simply leave your assets to your new spouse, he/she is free to leave them to his/her children, not yours, once you pass away. This scenario may be avoidable with a trust, and your assets can ultimately pass to your kids. 3. Tr Trusts may be used to manage assets inherited by children who aren’t good with money For example, you may provide that the child will only get the income from his/her inheritance or in monthly installments. 4. Tr Trusts may also protect your children’s inheritance, if they go bankrupt, divorce orr face a lawsuit 5. Further, if you have a handicapped child, a “supplemental needs trust” may be utilized to prevent loss of his or her government benefits. Learn how Curtis can help you set up a Revocable Living Tr Trust at a free seminar on November 16th at the We Wesley Chapel Hampton Inn & Suites at 11:00am and 2:00pm. Seating is limited, so be sure to call (352) 315-0333 today to reserve your seat. The cost of a revocable living trust is $399 for a single person and $499 for a married couple (plus incidental costs.)

Among a record of 103 entrants in Pasco County Clerk & Comptroller Paula O’ Neil’s fifth annual Constitution Essay Contest, Carly Carly Bowling Bowling, a fifthgrader at Woodland Elementary School, came out on top with her deep research, a keen grasp of history and the intent of the Constitution, as well as clear writing skills. Bowling will receive a tour of the Pasco County courthouse of her choice and lunch with O’ Neil. Lake Myrtle Elementary’s Priscilla Savill and Oakstead Elementary’s Philip Fleming both had strong essays with personal touches, that produced second and third places, respectively. Savill’s essay wrote about the role her generation will play in “passing freedoms on to my children and future generations.” Fleming’s submission was well-organized and packed with relevant background information that “flowed nicely into information about the Constitution,” wrote one judge. All three winners will be presented to Pasco County Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning and the district staff of Paula O’ Neil at the school board meeting on Dec. 18, where they will receive trophies and memorabilia from Saint Leo University. Honorable mentions were awarded to Ben Roorda, Oakstead Elementary; Megan Levy, First Christian Academy; William Vaughn, Woodland Elementary; Emma Hatzistefanou,Trinity Elementary; Ethan Florer, Woodland Elementary; Bella Whiffen, Oakstead Elementary; Della Krook, Oakstead Elementary; and Genevieve Tucker, Longleaf Elementary. The three winning compositions are posted online at Facebook. Com/PascoClerk/.

SUMMIT, from page 1A destined for college, to have a chance to learn trade skills that can translate to highwage job right out of high school. Browning put it this way:“What we need to do is have training programs that meet the needs of all of our students, so if you’re going to be a plumber, you be the best plumber you can be.” Browning also said the school district needs more input from local business leaders on the types of labor needed for the present and future. “We need to do a better job of communicating, and we need to create a better relationship with our chambers, because the chambers are the ones that are really connecting, letting businesses know what we do and creating dialogues to help build that need,” the superintendent said.
PREPARING TOMORROW’S WORKFORCE
Browning was upbeat about some of the career and technical academies the district presently offers. He pointed to Zephyrhills High’s aviation academy and Wesley Chapel High’s automotive technology academy, along with academies at other schools ranging from health and finance, to cybersecurity and culinary arts. “I think we’re on the right path,” Browning said.“We’re working tirelessly trying to make sure our programs are relevant to meet the employment needs of our employers in Pasco County. We’re not perfect, and we’re not where we need to be. We’re still trying to figure out how to address the trades issue.” Browning also mentioned the district is designing a technical high school in east Pasco that would likely open by 2022. The district’s only two technical offerings — Marchman Technical College and Wendell Krinn Technical High School (which replaced Ridgewood High this school year) — are located in New Port Richey. Plans call for the new school to be built on a 125-acre, district-owned tract of land along Fairview Heights and Handcart Road in the Dade City area. It will help relieve overcrowding at Pasco, Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass Ranch high schools, Browning said. “It’s going to be uniquely situated in the right place, right spot, offering technical career education students are clamoring for,” he said. The technical school is also something the manufacturing industry is pushing for, according to Tom Mudano,AmSkills executive director, another guest speaker at the summit. Mudano said a tech school based in east Pasco could help lure more manufacturing business to the region, to follow in the footsteps of companies such as Mettler Toledo and TouchPoint Medical, which he said have already brought a combined 700 jobs to the county. “We truly believe that we need a facility on this side of Pasco County,” Mudano said. “If you’re looking at bringing jobs here, having a workforce is important.” Mudano pointed out Tampa Bay has the most number of manufacturers in the state. And, he said that many of those companies have expressed a great need for additional skilled and semi-skilled workers. “A lot of people don’t even realize that
HOSPITAL, from page 1A ever electronic medical records system, Cerner, launches on Dec. 2 The $5 million system is expected to make it easier for network providers to access and share information with the hospital. “It helps us not just provide a more connected patient experience, but it helps us understand the data,” Maggard explained. Those aren’t the only changes coming soon to Florida Hospital Dade City. Beginning in January, all of Adventist Health System’s wholly owned hospitals and hundreds of care sites across its footprint will adopt the AdventHealth name and logo. In east Pasco, Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, Zephyrhills Health and Rehab Center, and Zephyr Haven Health and Rehab Center will also take on the AdventHealth title.
COURTESY OF PASCO SCHOOLS
Pasco County School’s Career and Technical Education programs were discussed extensively at the second annual Zephyrhills Economic Summit.
there’s a lot of (manufacturing) opportunities out there,” he said. Mudano also assured that those types of trade jobs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. He cited information from the National Association of Manufacturers that projects there will be about 3.4 million jobs over the next 10 years, yet only 1.1 million of them will get filled. The summit also featured a lengthy presentation from state Sen. Tom Lee, a Republican from Thonotosassa. Much of his talk centered on the state’s education system and the strides made during the last several years. He pointed to the advent of charter schools and various opportunity scholarship programs as key reasons for boosting the state’s public education system on the whole. “Everybody is more on their game today than they were 20 years ago. We have a rising graduation rate, better testing scores,” said Lee, who represents parts of Hillsborough, Pasco, and Polk counties in District 20. He added:“We have created some competition for the public education system, and the public education system has responded well.” Meanwhile, Lee suggested that going forward, the state legislature should “back off some of the micromanagement” of county school districts. He said school boards should instead have more control over district budgets and educational programs to “best meet the needs of the individual student populations of the schools.” Lee also advocated for creating “fair competition” and “leveling the playing field” between public schools and alternative charter schools. One way to do that, he said, includes loosening up some of strict building requirements of new public schools, called State Requirements for Educational Facilities (SREF), that cost school districts exponentially more than their charter school counterparts. He asked: “Why is it costing public education system 20 percent more to build a public school than it is a charter school?” Other speakers at the summit included Dr. Keiva Wiley, Pasco County Schools director of Career and Technical Education;Angie Stone, Zephyrhills High School principal; Dr. Stanley Giannet, of Pasco-Hernando State College; Pasco County Commissioner Ron Oakley; Maria Reza, Career Source Pasco/Hernando business services consultant; Seta Ruiz, Florida Hospital Zephyrhills director of clinical services; and, Dr. Randy Stovall, Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce president. The Zephyrhills Economic Development Coalition presented the summit, in partnership with the City of Zephyrhills and The Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce.
That announcement was made by the company in August. The organization said the naming structure was made to better allow consumers to more easily distinguish AdventHealth’s care locations and services; it does not reflect a change in ownership or business structure. Maggard said of the rebranding:“This is not anything other than we’re trying to be that one unified team providing that same care.We have the same vision, the same mission across all of our facilities. “You wouldn’t’ know as a consumer that we’re all connected.We’re one large organization with one goal, one purpose: To provide this whole-person care — not just your physical needs, but your mental and your spiritual needs as well.” Adventist Health System is one of the nation’s largest faith-based health care systems, with more than 80,000 employees across 50 hospital campuses and hundreds of care sites throughout 10 states.

Prep football regular season recap By Kevin Weiss email@example.com
ith the 2018 prep football regular season coming to a close — and playoffs set to begin — here’s a look at some of the storylines and highlights from schools in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area:
ZEPHYRHILLS NOTCHES PERFECT CAMPAIGN The 2018 campaign will be one to remember for the Zephyrhills Bulldogs. They finished 10-0 and captured their second straight Class 5A, District 8 title — becoming the only public school in Pasco County to finish the regular season undefeated, and, marking the first time the program has had a perfect regular season since 1995. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs closed the year with a 49-0 shutout of the Pasco Pirates — the largest margin of victory in the longstanding 9-Mile War rivalry game that dates back to 1941. Of course, the Bulldogs recent success is no fluke. The program has posted eight straight winning seasons and five playoff appearances under its last two coaches, Nick Carroll and Reggie Roberts. Carroll is now 28-5 through his first three seasons as head coach.That includes 19 straight regular season wins dating back to last season. Now Zephyrhills hopes for a deeper run in the playoffs than last season, when they lost an emotional 52-49 home contest to Green Cove Springs Clay in the Class 5A regional semifinals. They host Crystal River (8-2) on Friday in the Class 5A regional quarterfinals.
GAITHER FINISHES STRONG TO REACH PLAYOFFS Heading into the final week of the regular season, the Gaither Cowboys were on the outside looking in to the Class 7A playoffs. But, a remarkable 21-20 win over Tampa Bay Tech in the regular season finale — as part of a three-game winning streak — propelled them to a No. 6 seed in the Class 7A, Region 2 bracket. The win gives Gaither (7-3) some momentum in notching its second straight playoff berth, something the Cowboys will need this Friday against Plant (9-1) — a team they haven’t beaten in 10 contests, including a 44-34 loss back on Sept. 21. But, don’t totally discount the Cowboys, who feature a balanced offensive attack and a dangerous pass rush to hang with many teams.
COURTESY OF ZEPHYRHILLS HIGH SCHOOL
Zephyrhills High finished the regular season with an undefeated 10-0 mark.
LAND O’ LAKES THRIVES UNDER NEW HEAD COACH While the Land O’ Lakes Gators narrowly missed the playoffs, it was undoubtedly a successful season for first-year head coach Chad Walker. The Gators (7-3) notched its first winning season since 2013. And, they finally upended crosstown rival Sunlake in the annual Butter Bowl game — winning for the first time in the series since 2009. The big question is whether Land O’ Lakes can maintain the newfound success after losing a large senior class that includes a bevy of contributors on offense and defense.Working in the team’s favor, however, is the expected return of junior quarterback Ethan Forrester, who posted a 51.6 completion percentage for 1,252 passing yards and 12 touchdowns (three interceptions).
LOCAL PRIVATE SCHOOLS ARE PLAYOFF-BOUND It’s been a solid year for private schools in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area, as Carrollwood Day School, Zephyrhills Christian, and Academy at the Lakes (eightman) each qualified for the playoffs. Carrollwood Day (5-5) and Zephyrhills Christian (7-3) locked up No. 3 seeds in their respective Class 2A regions. Carrollwood Day is making its first playoff appearance since 2015, while Zephyrhills Christian is making its third straight postseason appearance. Academy at the Lakes (6-0), meanwhile, with one regular season game remaining,

After 29 years as a high school football head coach in the North Suncoast, Sunlake’s Bill Browning is hanging up his headset and putting away his playbook.The longtime coach made the announcement over the weekend after the Seahawks wrapped up its second straight 4-6 campaign. Browning built the Seahawks program from scratch in 2007, turning it into one of Pasco County’s
most dominant programs across the last decade, with a string of seven straight winning seasons. Browning now retires as the seventh-most winningest coach in Pasco County history (73). Prior to Sunlake, Browning coached a combined 17 years for Springstead and Hernando high schools, racking up a combined 92 wins— second all-time among Hernando County coaches.

Swampfest offers food, fun and entertainment By Randy Underhill Special to The Laker/Lutz News
light rain fell on the evening of Nov. 2 at the 10th annual Swampfest at Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park, but that didn’t keep the mostly young festival crowd from turning out to enjoy the rides, games, food trucks and entertainment. JT Curtis and the Florida Scoundrels entertained the crowd from the Heritage Park stage. Attendance swelled the following day, as the weather was sunny and breezy — simply perfect for a day at festival. The event, hosted by the Land O’ Lakes High School Booster Club, raises money, which benefits all of the students
at the high school. For instance, proceeds from previous festivals have been used to purchase equipment for the weight room. Besides carnival rides and food, the festival offered face painting for kids, the Kim Fish Beer Garden for adults and the Future Farmers’ goat-petting area. Entertainment on the main stage included Show on the Road of Tampa, a song and dance routine of elementary school kids, and the local band The Big Bong Theory. Performers scheduled for Nov. 4 included Nicole’s Dance Center, Karl & Dimarco Dance Studio, Suncoast Dance Academy, Beyond Chaotic, and Pineview Dance and Cheer. The event attracted people of all ages, from across Tampa Bay.
