Nature Coast Sharks End Playoff’s For The Bulldogs


The Nature Coast Sharks will be moving on to the next round of the playoffs as they defeated the Zephyrhills Bulldogs by a score of 42 – 13. Zephyrhills had a great run this year and finished the regular season with 8 wins and 2 losses. They were 6 – 1 in the district. It looks to me that next years team will be loaded with talent as was this years team. In any event we will always be proud of the Bulldogs. They played their hearts out this season. Now it’s time to get some rest.

Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Vonnie Mikkelsen announced her resignation today having accepted a position as executive director/CEO of the Chamber of Commerce in Springfield, Ore.

Mikkelsen’s final day will be July 2 and she will begin her new position July 13. The Springfield Chamber is located 10 miles from the rural city of Junction City, Ore. where Mikkelsen grew up.

“I have grown very fond of Zephyrhills, and so the decision has been a difficult one. But I also know that with change comes endless possibilities. I’m certain that the next Executive Director will find, like I did, that this position offers a rare opportunity to work with remarkable people and serve in a place that is truly special,“ Mikkelsen said.

The Zephyrhills Chamber has formed a search committee to find a replacement for Mikkelsen by the end of June. Chamber president Carolyn Hodges said that applications will be accepted between May 11 and June 1. A job description for the position may be found on the Chamber website ZephyrhillsChamber.org.

“Vonnie has been a tireless advocate for the Zephyrhills community and an inspiring leader for the Chamber of Commerce. We’re excited for her to be returning to her roots in Oregon,” Hodges said. “It’s a new chapter for the Zephyrhills Chamber,” Hodges continued, “and we are looking forward to finding the person who is the right fit and can build on the foundation that Vonnie established over the past six years,”

Mikkelsen came to the Zephyrhills Chamber in 2009
