They have collected more than $1,000 from a “buy a brick” program and sales of popcorn at community events. Those efforts will continue.

Celebrating a half-century of danceBy Kathy [email protected]

Sally Blackwood was just meant todance.

And at age 79, she is celebrating the50th anniversary of the Blackwood Studiosin Dade City with a recital of “The Wizard ofOz”.

The journey down the yellow brick roadis a tradition begun in 1965 and has beenrepeated every decade since.

“It is our signature piece,” said Blackwoodwho teaches up to five hours a day.

The faces of many of her students have afamiliar look, because often they are thechildren or grandchildren of students shetaught in the past.

“We really are a studio family,” Blackwoodsaid.

Her own family is where her passion fordance began.

Her father’s orchestra traveled throughFlorida at the height of the swing bandcraze in the 1940s. Ben Atwood and his mu-sical troupe played the swanky Vinoy Hotelin St. Petersburg. Her mother, GenevieveAtwood, played violin in the orchestra. Itwas a love match.

Blackwood would find her own lovematch, too. But first there would be a child-hood of uninhibited movement.

She traveled with her parents to militarybases as they entertained troops duringWorld War II. She was 5 years old when theJapanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

They were part of the vaudeville circuit,playing one night in Jacksonville and anoth-er in Avon Park. Her hometown wasLakeland, Florida.

“They did everything they could to helpthe war effort. I was like their mascot,”Blackwood said. “I made up dances.”

She did a “little samba” to the song“Down South American Way.” Or whatevershe’d seen in the movies.

A Lakeland teacher spotted her and toldher parents their young daughter had totake lessons, and join her dance troupe.Another teacher, Mary Fariday, told ateenage Blackwood to go to New York.

“Ballet was my big love,” she said.“(Fariday) took me under her wings andtaught me everything.”

At age 20, she auditioned for the leg-endary Robert Joffrey, founder of the JoffreyBallet School, then based in New York. Heselected her to tour with a troupe thatwould perform at colleges and universities.

Blackwood is modest about the accom-plishment, pointing out she is barely 5 feet.“He was a short man,” she said. “He likedshort dancers.”

But fate and love intervened.Her high school sweetheart, James

“Woody” Blackwood, had returned toLakeland from Germany after three years ofmilitary service. He wanted to see her onemore time.

“I was going to go home for a week,” shesaid. “I never went back. I’ve never regret-ted it.”

Ballet with a professional company takesdrive and ambition.

Besides, she said, “I’m not a competitiveperson for myself.”

Though the couple was living inLakeland, Blackwood began driving to DadeCity once a week to teach 19 dance stu-dents.

Enrollment grew and it made sense in1966 to relocate the family.

“We had so many coming back,” she said.“I’d have to come back four times a week.”

They bought a house on MeridianAvenue in downtown Dade City wherethey raised their daughters, Mary Ann andGlenda. A kindergarten teacher whosedaughter was in Blackwood’s dance classoffered to build a facility next to the housewhich she would use during the day. It wasBlackwood’s dance studio in the afternoonand evening.

Woody Blackwood, who died in 2001,operated an antiques shop in anotherhouse, adjacent to the studio.

“He did everything for us,” said his wife.“He’d make dinner for me. He built scenery.He was good with the kids.”

The antique shop is now a two-storymaze of costumes collected through theyears. Square-dancer skirts in a rainbow ofcolors hang along the walls. Racks andracks of gowns, tutus, leotards, fancy dressshirts, vests, bangles and beads, laces, a boxof yellow polka dot bikinis, and the oddpiece of stage scenery are showbiz cornu-copia.

Cheryl Hauff is part of the studio familyand in charge of making costumes for morethan a decade. Her daughter is a former stu-dent.

“Everyone just becomes family,” she said.“It gives girls (and boys) something to do.They advance and progress.”

Ballet is the foundation.“Nobody has ever gotten a system better

to train bodies,” Blackwood said. “That’swhy we really stress ballet.”

It teaches control, stamina, body place-ment, and how to move smoothly andgracefully.

“If they never dance (again), the posturethey get from ballet is so healthy and beau-tiful,” she said. “It also teaches them respectfor music and for themselves.”

Her studio offers 66 classes a week inballet, tap, jazz, modern dance and acrobat-ics. Blackwood has seven teachersincluding her daughter, Mary AnnBlackwood, who also is the studio’s chore-ographer.

She seems somehow to know instinc-tively how to orchestrate the movements ofdozens of children, Haupff said. “She isamazing,” she added.

“The Wizard of Oz” will have two per-formances on June 12 and 13. An old“reel-to-reel” tape recording of the narrative

and music from 1975 will be used.The play isn’t a re-creation of the famil-

iar movie with Judy Garland, though bits offamiliar songs are used as performers movescenery around between scenes.

L. Frank Baum wrote more than a dozenOz books and Blackwood dips into many ofthem for the story line.

There are no flying monkeys. Thatwould be too scary, she said.

Instead the witches have crows.“We chose music to fit the characters,”

Blackwood said. “So, it can be classical.”On June 14, there will be a reunion of

Blackwood and her extended dance familythrough the years. At least one former stu-dent is coming from California.

But a 50-year reunion doesn’t meanBlackwood is planning to retire any timesoon.

“I hope I’ll have enough sense to knowwhen I’m not doing a good job,” she said. “Istill have patience.”

Plans are under way for a trip to Europewhere some of her students will perform inGermany and Austria. And she has threegirls who are going to a Joffrey-sponsoredsummer camp in Miami.

Teaching is where her heart is.“This way you’re sharing everything.

That’s the way I like it,” Blackwood said.

It may not be a royal, but the newestbaby at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is beingtreated like a princess.

A southern white rhinoceros was bornon May 21 to “Alake,” an animal that original-ly lived in the Phinda Reserve in Africa,according to a news release from LowryPark Zoo officials.

The newborn marks the fourth success-ful southern white rhino birth and theseventh rhino born in the Zoo’s history, offi-cials say.

Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is part of theAssociation of Zoos and Aquariums RhinoTaxon Advisory Group, which includes thesouthern white rhino Species Survival Plan.

The plan is designed to support conser-vation of select wildlife species at risk ofextinction. The newborn introduces newDNA into the genetics of the managed pop-ulation in North America.

The zoo is currently home to a herd offive southern white rhinos: three adult fe-males from the Phinda Reserve in Africa,one adult male, and the newborn.

In keeping with a natural herd struc-ture, Alake and calf have begunintroductions to the other rhinos andGrevy’s zebras that share their habitat, zooofficials say.

While the birth is welcome news forthe managed population, record numbersof rhinos were killed by poachers in SouthAfrica last year. Despite increased protec-tion efforts, the number of rhinos killed bypoachers jumped 21 percent to 1,215. Thecurrent poaching crisis is driven by thegrowing demand for rhino horn inSoutheast Asia where horn, made out ofkeratin -- the same material found inhuman hair and nails -- is wrongly believedto have medicinal properties.

The white rhinoceros has two horns atthe end of its muzzle, the most prominentin the front. Unlike Indian rhinos, white rhi-nos use their horns for defense. Femalesuse their horns to protect their young,while males use them to battle each other.Adult white rhinos can reach weights ofabout 5,000 pounds, with most calves esti-mated to weigh between 80 to 140pounds, according to the news release.

Lowry Park Zoo has new baby white rhino

COURTESY OF LOWRY PARK ZOOA southern white rhinoceros strolls with its mom, ‘Alake,’ at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.While zoo officials rejoiced at the baby rhino’s birth, record numbers of rhinos were killedby poachers in South Africa last year, according to a news release from Tampa’s Lowry ParkZoo.

The $2.4 million renovation project atLand O’ Lakes Community Park, 5401 LandO’ Lakes Blvd., is just about completed. Itfeatures new fields, a playground, a conces-sion stand and restrooms. There’s even awalking trail for walkers and joggers thatgoes around the park.

But there’s another improvement thatgets Mike Walcott, a recreation supervisorfor Pasco County Parks, Recreation andNatural Resources, really excited.

The parking.“I think the thing a lot of people are

going to like is the paved parking,” Walcottsaid. “Because when you park in a dirt lot inthe middle of July and you have those stormscome rolling though, it creates a mess.”

Walcott has endured the mess associatedwith dirt lots long enough to know howbad it can be. He’s been with the countyparks department for 15 years, with abouteight of them at Land O’ Lakes CommunityPark.

Small improvements can make a big dif-ference, and they can enhance theexperience of visiting the park.

And, with all the bigger improvementsready to be unveiled to the public, he ex-pects a lot more visitors in the future.

The improved fields are good for thepark’s existing users like their adult softballleague and Police Athletic League youthfootball. The latter will now have their homegames at the park, instead of just using it asa practice facility.

In addition, the park now has a specialevent area that will be a gathering place fora variety of community events. Walcott seesmovies in the park, a farmer’s market

and company picnics as just some of thepossible uses.

The annual Swampfest event, which wascanceled last year due to a conflict with thepark’s renovation schedule, is also back onfor this November.

And with a potential addition in the fu-ture, the possibilities are even greater.

“We’re looking forward to possibly astage being put out into the park, so we’llbe able to do concerts,” Walcott said.

That project is being spearheaded by theHeritage Park Foundation. And the group’spresident, Sandy Graves, believes it wouldbe an artistic feather in the park’s cap.

“I think it will complete that park,”Graves said.

The plan includes a structure that takesup around 2,000 square feet with a backroom, electrical hookup and wide steps forpeople to bring up instruments or otherbulky equipment.

The foundation would like to collaboratewith local government to help raise fundsfor the project, which could exceed$150,000. For now, foundation members areraising money on their own, as they try tofind a government partnership that worksfor everybody.

While the park will continue to thrive asa destination for local teams, Graves seesmore opportunities for the park as a localhub of community activity.

“Sports is just one facet,” she said. “I thinkit’s good for the community to have a cen-tral gathering space where it can have thefestivals that bring a community together.”

Meanwhile, the Land O’ LakesCommunity Park is taking advantage of an-other construction project to enhanceusers’ experience. When Sanders MemorialElementary School reopens later this year as

the county’s first STEAM magnet school, itsproximity to the park invites a natural shar-ing of facilities. STEAM stands for science,technology, engineering, arts and mathemat-ics.

They’ll be able to share event space,parking, basketball courts and other facili-ties.

That collaboration, as well as the existingrenovations and potential future improve-ments, means the park will continue tomaximize its resources. At just 16 acres, it’snot a large park, but the new layout will usethe area efficiently.

“I think they came up with a great multi-use community park,” Walcott said. “As far asthe size that we have here, I think every-one’s going to get something out of it.”

For now, it seems like everyone wants to

hear about its progress. Walcott gets resi-dents coming by every day asking aboutproject updates and wanting to see howthings are going. And he’s pleased to reportthat some facets of the park will be availablewithin the next couple of weeks, and thefields are being prepared for use in the com-ing months. Soon residents will be able toenjoy the new amenities, like the walkingtrail, concession stand and event area.

And the parking, of course.“It sounds ridiculous that I keep going

back to the paved parking. But oh my good-ness, that was the biggest thing. Just gettingstuck in the mud,” Walcott said. “I knowwhen people come out here and get a goodlook at the place, they’re really going to likeit. They’re really going to enjoy being outhere.”

IMAGE COURTESY OF THE HERITAGE PARK FOUNDATIONA proposed stage where special events can be held would cost $150,000 or more, but wouldcreate a permanent platform for community productions and performances.

MICHAEL MURILLO/STAFF PHOTOSMike Walcott reviews plans for the improvements at Land O’ Lakes Community Park. Itincludes new fields, an event staging area, a new concession structure and bathrooms.

Work is wrapping up on the $2.4 million project to improve Land O’ Lakes Community Park.

Renovations wrappingup at Land O’ Lakes park

Debi Bolusi and Ernest Van Glahn are twoaward-winning realtors in the Exit Prime Realtyfamily serving Land O’ Lakes and neighboringcommunities. Debi received her first Exit Awardfor Excellence in Customer Service in 2014.Ernie won the 2014 SalesPerson of the year award andwas voted the Most ValuablePlayer for the brokerage. BothErnest and Debi have beenawarded Agent of the Monthmultiple times in 2014.

Debi moved to Odessathree years ago from NewYork. She started out withReMax, but left when ExitPrime Realty contacted her.“We have a great family of realtors here,” saysDebi. “I’m glad I made the switch.”

Ernie is a retired New York City Officer fromthe New York City Police Department. He rosethrough the ranks quickly to the rank ofCaptain. He retired after 20 years. He served as aCommanding Officer when he retired. Hemoved to Florida and has lived in Land O’ Lakesfor the last eleven years.

“My niche is working with our nation’sheros,” says Van Glahn. He is a MilitaryRelocation Professional. He works with membersof the military, law enforcement, fire fighters,EMT’s, and school employees. He is also anEmployee Benefits Director for a non-profitorganization, “Hero Home Source.” Ernie givesback part of his commission to these heroes atclosing for their service to our nation and com-munity.

“Prospective clients should ask about our 59-Day Guarantee,” says Ernie. “If we don’t sellyour home in 59 days, we’ll pay you $1,000 atclosing. Give us a call to find out the details.There are some conditions that must be met, ofcourse.”

“This is a great time to sell your home,” saysDebi. “It’s a seller’s market. The existing homeinventory is low. Many sellers are receiving theirasking price or more.”

There is also a great deal of new home con-struction going on in the Land O’ Lakes andWesley Chapel area. State Road 54 is beingwidened to accommodate the growth. There are

also a number of new shopping centers on thebooks. More schools will need to be built toaccommodate the growth.

Ask about their guaranteed sales program fornew construction. Qualified buyers may havetheir existing rental lease bought out as part ofthe settlement on a new home.

Debi and Ernie have solid relationships witharea lenders. They work hardto get you the very bestfinancing. They also workwith people who’ve had cred-it problems in the past, help-ing to get their creditrepaired, so they’ll be able toobtain financing.

“A number of zero-downfinancing programs are avail-able,” says Debi. “Right nowthe USDA is offering 100

percent financing for many areas in PascoCounty. Interest rates are still low. We’re alsonot seeing as many foreclosures as there were twoyears ago. The market is good.”

Debi and Ernie want to make the sale andpurchase process as stress-free as possible. “Wedeal with all the stress, so our clients don’t haveto,” says Debi.

“One thing we always recommend is a homeinspection,” says Ernest. “It’s the best two tothree hundred dollars you can spend on a homepurchase. You don’t want any surprises afterclosing that could have easily been resolved oravoided prior to the sale.”

“There are numerous types of technologies weuse to get your home sold,” says Debi. “ExitRealty is the technology leader. Other broker-ages simply do not have these technologies.”

Ernie and Debi works closely with relocationbuyers from locations all over the country. Theyare able to assist these buyers with the sale oftheir existing homes, even those that are locatedin other states. Debi is Short Sale Certified.

Ernie was the first employee in the Land O’Lakes office when it opened in August two yearsago. Now they have fifty agents. The real estatemarket is booming. Anyone considering a careerin real estate should give Debi or Ernie a call.The company provides a great deal of trainingand support to their agents.

that are now adults, that I run into,” she said.Indeed, one of those former students, Dr.

Joe Lezama, of the James A. Haley VeteransAdministration Hospital, surprised her at herretirement party.

“It was really quite touching.“He talked about when he was 9 and he

came to my class, and he had just moved tothe city. He was lost,” she said. But he settledin, and life moved on.

Last year, he came with his children tothe school, and when he walked in thedoor, he asked: “Are you Mrs. Fernandez?’”

She responded: “You’re my Joey.”“It’s full circle,” Fernandez said.After teaching at St. Lawrence, she went

on to teach at Citrus Park Elementary, underthe direction of Principal Virginia Urbanek,who is now deceased.

“What a great, great mentor she was,”Fernandez said.

When Fernandez told Urbanek she wasinterested in becoming an administrator, shesaid Urbanek told her: “Just come everyMonday morning and sit with me.”

Urbanek was an early riser.“From 6:30 to 7:30, whatever she was

working on, she let me watch,” Fernandezsaid.

As the day progressed, Urbanek wouldpop in to tell Fernandez how she followedthrough on various issues.

When Urbanek opened EssrigElementary as its first principal, Fernandezjoined the school’s inaugural staff.

She took on her first administrative roleat Lutz Elementary.

She was attracted to the school becauseof the community’s hometown feel.

“Lutz is well known for that,” Fernandezsaid.

“I didn’t want just a job,” she explained. “Iwanted to be part of a family and part of acommunity, and I never left,” she said.

Despite her many years as an administra-tor, Fernandez said she has never forgotten

what brought her into education in the firstplace.

“I loved being in the classroom, and Iloved the children, and to be honest withyou, I miss it every single day.

“But I found that by being an administra-tor, you could really be involved in so manyother children’s lives,” she said.

At Lutz Elementary, she said, “We treatchildren like our own. If this were yourchild, how would you want them to betreated?”

It means being caring, but she added, “Italso means tough love.”

“We just need to love children and takecare of them, and I wanted to share thatvalue with other people,” Fernandez said.

During her years as an educator, she’sseen a greater degree of attention beingpaid to schools at every level — federal,state, local and community.

She agrees that accountability is impor-tant, but she also thinks many communitiesneed to do more to help schools succeed.

“The best schools are in communitiesthat support them. That doesn’t meanwealthy, it means communities that supportthem.

“Lutz is a unique community. Honestly,my wish would be that a lot of schoolscould feel the connection to their communi-ty like we do,” Fernandez said.

And, while technology and curriculumchanges, there are some aspects of educa-tion that are timeless, she said.

“You have to work with every child, indi-vidually. If you don’t understand thempersonally, it doesn’t matter what programyou give them. You’ve got to reach them in-dividually. You have to reach their heart,” shesaid.

“You have to know their family. You haveto know where they’ve come from. Theirvalues. What they’re afraid of. What theirgoals are,” she added.

“You have to let them know that youcare about them.

“And that,” Fernandez said, “has notchanged.”

Those who want to contribute can do so atDonationTo.com/Troop12.

The fundraising campaign’s goal is toraise $10,000 by the end of the year,Anderson said.

The scouts aren’t the only ones whowould benefit from a larger facility.

“They also have other (groups) that meetthere,” Anderson said.

“We try to use it for a community type fa-cility without going overboard,” said Potvin,the scoutmaster.

For instance, volunteers meet there toplan for the Fourth of July celebration. Thewoman’s club and an art teacher instruct-

ing home-schooled children use the space,too.

Anderson sees the fundraising effort as away to give back to a group that has beeninvolved in many worthwhile projects.

Those projects have included plantingabout 4,000 trees on behalf of the Lutz-LandO’ Lakes Lions Club, doing a service projectat the Veterans Memorial Park, and helpingwith the setup and tear down at the annualLutz Arts and Crafts Festival, to name just afew examples.

“They are just very active in the commu-nity. And, they are very generous in lettingpeople use their building,” said PhyllisHoedt, a volunteer who has played a pivotalrole for decades in many community proj-ects and events.

portion of the money to two local groups:The Friends of the Lutz Branch Library andthe local Boy Scouts. The latter is in honor ofher grandson, Shannon Sobtzak, who is pur-suing his Eagle Scout designation.

When she’s not starting a conga linewith a toilet seat around her head — anoth-er highlight of the Guv’na debate — Ayresmight be busy in her role providing supportfor a team of financial planners at Full CircleFinancial in New Port Richey. Or, she mighthave her nose in a good book.

She started a book club a few years back.The next book on the club’s list is “To

Kill A Mockingbird,” a classic story of integri-ty and the fight for justice. It seems anappropriate tale for a Guv’na hopeful.

Win or lose, the important thing is thatmonies raised are going back to the commu-nity, Ayres said. But she wants to win, attendthe ceremonial events befitting a LutzGuv’na and don the symbol of the office.

“I absolutely want to wear that tacky lit-tle sash,” Ayres said.

By Meaghan O’NealSpecial to The Laker / Lutz News

When transitioning to an assisted livingand memory care community, TheCommons on Pretty Pond in Zephyrhills isthe perfect community. “It is our goal tomake the transition from home to our com-munity meaningful and worry free.” KeatonHobbs, CommunityOutreach Director at TheCommons explains.

“The quality of life ourresidents enjoy is at the coreof our mission. Researchshows that activity, bothphysical and mental canimprove the overall qualityof life. Our goal is to create awhole person wellness atti-tude and change how wethink and act in relation toour residents. “AgingGracefully” is not a program but rather theembodiment of an attitude about the qualityof life we provide our residents. It is the plat-form upon which family members and staffalike participate to present those attributesthat will allow our residents to rediscoverthe joy available in life.” Keaton explained.

To keep residents active, The Commonsoffers an activity program that engages themind, energizes the body and nurtures thespirit. Activities include: health & wellnessprograms, fitness & exercise classes, craftclasses, puzzles, memory games, card games,social events, spiritual and cultural program-ming and exciting and fun outings. Otherthoughtfully designed common spacesmeant to be enjoyed include a beauty salon,library and billiards room. Additionally, TheCommons provides transportation for shop-ping and doctors’ appointments.

Keaton explains that many of their resi-dents enjoy volunteering and giving back to

the community. Residents have organizedfundraisers for causes such as Breast CancerAwareness and Wounded Warriors. Otherresidents enjoy making jewelry to sell in TheCommons’ store.

A year ago, The Commons added aMemory Care Village designed specificallyfor seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease and/orother memory loss not typically associated

with the normal agingprocess. Twenty-one apart-ments are dedicated specifi-cally to Memory Care,which provides our resi-dents with separate livingand dining areas, as well asan enclosed outdoor court-yard. In the Village, ourassociates and residentsspend their days “Reflectingon past accomplishments,Rejoicing in the momentand Renewing spirits each

day!” Keaton said. All 132 apartments at The Commons on

Pretty Pond are licensed for assisted livingand offer various levels of care. The month-to-month rent includes 3 meals per day,weekly housekeeping, laundry services,activities and entertainment, transportationand utilities.

The Commons has a variety of floorplans, including studio, one-bedroom andtwo- bedroom apartments. People who wantto experience The Commons, but wouldlike to try it first, can stay in an apartmentfor a few days. “This allows potential resi-dents to decide if The Commons is a good fitfor them,” said Keaton.

“The staff at The Commons on PrettyPond are dedicated to improving the lives oftheir residents every day,” said Keaton. “Ourgoal is to help make the transition intoassisted living (or memory care) enjoyablewith a goal of becoming healthier.”

Last year, the Pasco-Hernando StateCollege baseball team reached the WorldSeries for the first time in the program’s 23-year existence.

This year, the team fell just short of mak-ing back-to-back trips.

PHSC reached the National JuniorCollege Athletic Association Division IISoutheast District championship game lastmonth at its tournament in Martinsville,Virginia.

The third-ranked Conquistadors faced offagainst the top-ranked Catawba ValleyCommunity College Red Hawks.

A win would have meant a tie-breakingrematch with the same team, with the win-ner earning a berth in the NJCAA DII WorldSeries.

PHSC battled back from an early 5-0deficit to cut the lead to 5-3, but couldn’tkeep up with Catawba Valley and fell, 13-3.

They had lost to the same team by a 3-2margin earlier in the tournament.

The Red Hawks would go on to finishthird in the World Series, in Enid, Oklahoma,while PHSC went home.

But barely missing another World Seriestrip, while disappointing, doesn’t diminishwhat the team accomplished in coach SteveWinterling’s eyes.

“Besides just falling short of the WorldSeries, I couldn’t have been happier withthe way the guys played and fought all year,”he said.

They fought with defensive skills morethan anything else, Winterling explained.

In some years, hot bats that compensatefor average pitching define a team.

This season, the Conquistadors weren’tknocking everything out of the park, buttheir pitching and defense were strong andkept them in many games.

Some statistics tell the story: PHSCrecorded a school-record .972 fielding per-centage, and committed just 51 errors allseason. Some years they’ve had twice asmany errors, and the fielding percentage isnormally a good 18 points lower or more.

While they didn’t have their strongest of-fensive year, Winterling said there’s noquestion which type of team he’d rather

have. “I’d definitely take what we had this year.

It was a pleasure watching young kids pickit up, throw it over and make plays,” he said.“This club made the routine play, theyturned double plays, they ran balls down. Itwas fun to watch them play and not worryif the ball was hit.”

Even when opponents hit the ball, it usu-ally wasn’t enough to win the game. PHSCfinished 32-15 on the year and had littletrouble qualifying for the Southeast DistrictTournament, which required a .500 or bet-ter record during the regular season. Theteam started the year 11-3, and a particularlystrong nine-game win streak in March sawPHSC score 75 runs while recording fiveshutouts.

Their record became just one of a hand-ful of 30-win seasons the team has logged intheir 24 years, and is better than last year’sWorld Series team.

Once the team qualified, the rest of the

season was simply a tune-up for the tourna-ment. There was a concern that the playerswould ease up and not take the games as se-riously, Winterling admitted, but theyremained focused and played hard despitefacing tough competition.

Besides playing far into the tournament,the team also traveled far during the tourna-ment: What began in Kinston, NorthCarolina was completed more than 160miles away in Martinsville.

Tropical Storm Ana forced the games tobe moved.

The team had to scramble to find lodg-ing, and ended up staying in multiple hotelsover the course of the tournament.

“That was an amazing trip,” Winterlingsaid. “Definitely one not to forget.”

Now that they’re back home, Winterlingisn’t wasting any time getting ready for nextseason. He recently signed a catcher fromIndianapolis and is working on bolsteringthe pitching staff.

Those players will be needed, consider-ing PHSC will only have eight returningplayers plus a red shirt pitcher as holdovers.With around two dozen players making upa typical team, that means a lot of newfaces.

Despite losing three of the team’sstrongest pitchers, Winterling feels goodabout next season.

Some of the returning players are part ofthat stingy defense, and he identified JordanDing and Jordan Feist as part of a successfulleft infield that will be intact next season.

The coach believes they’ll form the nu-cleus of a team ready to extend the team’ssuccessful streak.

And while he already has his sights seton the school’s 25th baseball season,Winterling is proud of what the team ac-complished in Season 24.

“We just had a good group of guys. it wasall about winning and playing well,”Winterling said.

CHECKTHIS OUT

When Pasco-Hernando State College’s baseball team takes tothe field next season, Jordan Feist will be expected to contin-ue the strong defensive play that defined this year’s team.

They played for successful teams atPasco-Hernando State College. Now they’lldo the same for other schools.

Jordan Bickett wrapped up a successfultwo-year volleyball career at PHSC; the teamwent 39-8 in her sophomore campaign, in-cluding a trip to the National Junior CollegeActivities Association Division II nationalvolleyball tournament. The Lady Quistas fin-ished eighth, the second-best finish inschool history.

She’s signed on to continue her volley-ball career at Georgia Regents UniversityAugusta, and that team made a little histo-ry of its own last season. The Jaguarsfinished 27-9 and entered their firstDivision II Southeast Regional tournamentas the fourth seed, before falling to theeventual regional champion. Bickett’sPHSC coach, Kim Whitney, and GRUAugusta’s coach, Sharon Quarles, bothwon Coach of the Year honors in theirmost recent campaigns.

In baseball, Chris McCormick got ataste of World Series play in his freshmanyear when the Conquistadors reachedtheir first-ever National Junior CollegeAthletic Association Division II WorldSeries, where they finished fourth. Thispast season they fell just shy of anotherberth, but eclipsed 30 wins and finished

with a better record that they had duringtheir World Series run.

He’ll join a team that’s no stranger toWorld Series play: The Spartans just won

another Division II World Series title lastmonth. That championship goes with theone they earned in 2013, and five othersin the program’s history.

It’s summertime, so that meansthe kids are out of school andout-of-town guests are flockingto Florida to take advantage ofthe state’s world-famous themeparks and its gorgeous beaches.

But here’s a place, just off the beatentrack, that’s truly one of Tampa Bay’s gems.

The Florida Botanical Gardens offers visi-tors a chance to experience beauty, learnabout nature, get some exercise and find anice shady spot for a picnic lunch.

The attraction, at 12520 Ulmerton Roadin Largo, has another huge plus: It’s free.

You don’t have to go to Disney World orBusch Gardens to see topiary. You can visitthe Wedding Garden at the Florida BotanicalGardens to see a Cupid topiary take aim at aleafy green heart.

If palm trees are your thing, you’ll enjoythe collection here, including a date palm, aribbon palm, a European fan palm, a Zombiepalm, a Sugar palm, a cardboard palm, a tri-angle palm — well, you get the idea.

In other spots, guests can get closeuplooks at spiky “crown of thorns” plants, gor-geous water lily blooms, exotic bird ofparadise plants and clusters of bananas.

There are trails especially designed forchildren.

There are areas likely to interest garden-ers.

There’s wildlife, too, including wadingbirds and turtles.

There’s also something else that visitorsneed to know about. There are alligators.

They typically lurk below the water —but sometimes they surface to make an ap-pearance.

The key is to be aware of them, stayaway from them and take seriously thewarning signs that are posted around theproperty.

While the Florida Botanical Gardens is agreat place to visit, it’s a good idea to goearly in the day before Florida’s brutal heatand humidity take hold.

Slather on plenty of sunscreen. Spray oninsect repellent. Drink plenty of water.

Bring a camera.And, enjoy.

Clusters of bromeliads offer a glimpse of the beauty of nature’s handiwork at the FloridaBotanical Gardens in Largo.

Special to The Laker/Lutz News

If you are like millions of animal ownersnationwide, your pet is an important mem-ber of your household. Unfortunately,animals are also affected by disaster. Thelikelihood that you and your animals willsurvive an emergency such as a fire, flood,or tornado depends largely on emergencyplanning done today.

Here are five easy ways to prepare yourpet for an emergency:

• Identify a shelter. Before disasterhits, call your local office of emergency man-agement to see if you will be allowed toevacuate with your pets and that there willbe shelters that take people and their petsin your area. And just to be safe, track downa pet friendly, safe place for your family andpets. Most boarding kennels, veterinariansand animal shelters will need your pet’smedical records to make sure all vaccina-tions are current.

• Pack a pet kit. Take pet food, bottledwater, medications, veterinary records, catlitter/pan, manual can opener, food dishes,first aid kit and other supplies with you incase they’re not available later. Each pet isunique, but each pet needs the basics incase of an emergency.

• Update your pet’s ID. Make sureidentification tags are up-to-date and secure-ly fastened to your pet’s collar. If possible,attach the address and/or phone number ofyour evacuation site. If your pet gets lost, histag is his ticket home.

• Protect your pet during a disaster.Animals have instincts about severe weatherchanges and will often isolate themselves ifthey are afraid. Bringing them inside earlycan stop them from running away. Even ifyour dogs and cats normally get along, theanxiety of an emergency situation can causepets to act irrationally. Understanding whatto expect during a disaster is crucial.

• Keep an eye on your pet after anemergency. The behavior of your pets maychange after an emergency. Pets that are nor-mally quiet and friendly may becomeaggressive or defensive. Watch animals close-ly. Leash dogs and place them in a fencedyard with access to shelter and water.Familiar scents and landmarks may be al-tered and your pet may become confusedand lost. Remember to keep taking care ofthem even after the disaster.
