What to Wear Today in Sarasota
In a recent article, I wrote about the passing of a beloved friend of mine, Elizabeth Hochtetler. I talked about her family, the Survivors and the Funeral arrangements. In addition to that, I mentioned the coolest thing that he did for me. I hope that you too can take a few moments to read about him. He was one of my all-time favorite people.
If you are wondering what to wear today, Sarasota is the place to be. There are many things to do in Sarasota, from exploring the city to relaxing on the beach. If you want to stay cool this summer, a new dress is the perfect choice. Here are some ideas for how to wear it:
Alice Bontrager, Mary Ellen Highstetler, Samuel and Jeremy Hochtetler were born in Fairfield, Ohio. The sisters of Elizabeth Hochstetler are Alice Bontrager and Eli Hochstetler. Their parents were from the Dayton school district. Alice Bontrager was married to Samuel Hochstetler. Both Samuel and Elizabeth Hochstetler have three children.
A Florida native, Jeremy Hochtetler grew up on a dairy farm in Nappanee, Wisconsin. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a degree in business administration. He moved to Sarasota with his parents when he was 16 years old. His parents are Ammon and Edith Hochstetler and were both educators. His parents had six children: Jeremy and Katie, and three stepsons, Gerald and Etna Green.
Ammon Hochstetler, formerly of Sarasota, died on Sunday, May 19, 2019. He was 85 years old. He was born January 3, 1934, in Nappanee, WI. He married Betty Graber on June 23, 1962. He was a member of the Berea Christian Fellowship. He is survived by his wife, Betty, and their two children, Joanna Byler and Paul Stoltzfus.
Chris Hochstetler died on December 4, 2009 in Goshen, Indiana. He was born March 6, 1931. He married Edna Mae Troyer on October 4, 1955. Chris was a member of First Mennonite Church in Middlebury, IN for 52 years. He was active in the church, teaching Sunday school and sound technician. He was active in the community and served as a past vice president of the Middlebury Community Historical Museum.
Jeremy Hochtetler Survivors have paid tribute to their beloved husband and father. In addition to his wife, Katie, he is survived by his children and grandchildren. Ammon and Edith Hochtetler also survived him, as did his stepsons, Earl Miller and Etna Green. The family is grateful to their many friends for all they did for their departed husband.
Jeremy and his wife, Elizabeth, died in a tragic accident in December 2000. Their son, Kenton, and daughter, Jaylin, are surviving. His parents, Brian and Sue Hochtetler, lived in Warrensburg, Kansas. His grandparents are Melvin and Sue Ann Eash, and Clarence and Alice Bontrager. The Hochtetler family is very close to the Jeremy Hochtetler family and they have set up a memorial for the deceased.
Jeremy’s parents were also survivors. His parents died in 1996 and he had three children: Jaylin Eugene and Kenton Joe. They were the children of Eugene Hochstetler and Marian Kay Hochstetler. Both parents were of the Old Order Amish faith. Jeremy’s father, Eugene, also survived his parents, and also his mother, Marian Kay.
Sarasota losing its cool down the stretch
The Sarasota Sailors won a tight game in which they struggled to score points down the stretch. The Sailors’ offense was stifled by turnovers, as they were outrebounded and committed too many turnovers to score. That led to the team’s losing its cool down the stretch. The fourth quarter was a different story, as the Sailors were outscored by eight points and trailed by five at one point. However, the Sailors remained strong and hung on to win by a single point.
Sarasota’s median age is 49, which is higher than the national median and 20% higher than Florida’s. Its population is mostly retired, and 14% of the population is made up of “snowbirds.”
Booker beats DeSoto County
The Booker Bulldogs defeated the DeSoto County Bulldogs 57-53 on Friday night at a home game. The Bulldogs were led by Sheldon Shine’s 18 points. Marquis Mack finished with 13 points and Sloan Collins added nine rebounds. DeSoto’s defense was too much for the Bulldogs, who had only nine turnovers in the first half.
The difference between these two teams is the strength of their schedules. If Booker beats DeSoto County on Friday, they would need to beat Ridgewood, DeSoto County must lose to Hardee, and Pasco must beat DeSoto County to advance. If Pasco wins, it would make the playoffs by virtue of its strength of schedule, but Hardee and Booker would need to win the other two games to catch up.
The Mustangs’ roster is deep and athletic. The 6’5 junior guard Johnnie Williams IV leads a deep and athletic team. Other standouts include underrated forward Jordan Clark, guard Hudson Gough, and 2021 point guard Curtis Butler Jr. Booker also has a dynamic trio of players, which is why they won the district title. Booker nearly knocked off Leesburg in the state semifinal, but eventually Booker came out on top.
CLEARWATER beats Lakeside Christian
The Calvary Christian Warriors defeated the Clearwater Central Catholic Marauders 6-3 in a game that moved the Warriors to the top of the 4A-4 standings. Matheu Nelson hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning and the Warriors then piled on three more runs. The Calvary Christian defense shut down the Marauders’ offense and added another win to their district lead.
If you have ever considered attending a private school, you probably wonder how a Lakeside Christian School can be an option. The school has been serving the community for over 40 years, and provides curriculum, professional teaching practices, and caring relationships among teachers and students. The school’s mission is based on biblical principles of loving God and neighbor. The teachers and staff are committed to providing quality education for all students, and they show this commitment by modeling godliness and caring relationships among them.
