Manion It’s that time of year again, when families start gearing up for a new academic year by shopping for new school clothes, shoes, supplies and backpacks. Just in time for those back-to-school purchases, Florida is having its sales tax holiday. This time — for the first time — personal computers and accessories, valued up to $750, are also exempt from sales taxes during the sales tax holiday, which begins at 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 2 and goes through 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 4.Retailers are staffing up as families take advantage of tax savings and markdowns, Rick McAllister, president and CEO of the Florida Retail Federation, said in a news release.Retailers expect the introduction of the computer sales exemption to give the popular tax holiday a significant boost, McAllister said. Clothing items and shoes priced at up to $75 are exempt, and so are school supply items, sold at no more than $15. McAllister thinks the new computer exemption will drive purchases.

See TAX, page12Sales tax breaks await shoppers Bickley Rivera takes on a steelpan similar to what she’ll play when she attends Panorama next February in Trinidad. Bickley is raising money for the trip, which will include a documentary film crew. (Photo provided)By Michael Hinman She’s used it in concerts, recorded it in albums and even has had the music she’s created with it featured on The Weather Channel. But next February, if she can raise the funds, Bickley Rivera will face the ultimate challenge involving her favorite instrument, the steelpan: She will compete against natives of the country that invented it. She’s going to Panorama, the world’s largest steelpan competition, taking place in Trinidad — a competition that rarely welcomes outsiders. Yet Rivera, who lives in Land O’ Lakes, along with fellow performer Tom Berich of Medford, Ore., will trek to the Caribbean island nation to take part in the competition. And they’re taking a documentary film crew with them. “We’re going to be the outside eyes looking in,” Rivera said. “And we’re having that all put on film.” There, the two will each join their own band that could feature as many as 120 performers, or “pannists” as they preferred to be called. They will practice for up to three weeks in the country, performing nearnightly concerts for spectators attending the festival. Since this is a competition, it is possible that either Rivera or Berich could be cut at any time — even the night before the finals. “You’re really at their mercy,” Rivera said of the judges. “Basically, if you’re bad at any time, you could be pulled. We tried to pick bands that are regularly in the top 10, so we’re hoping that at least one of us makes it all the way through to the end.” Chances are that Rivera and Berich won’t receive any music or other prepara-Rivera to drum steelpan all the way to Trinidadtions ahead of their trip. They will step into roles equipped with only their steelpans and skills. It’s a high-pressure environment that should create plenty of real-life drama for the camera crew filming it.

By Melanie Casey Special to The Laker/Lutz News There’s an office in the Central Bank in north Tampa, which plays a role in a dachshund rescue group’s mission. The office, a stone’s throw from Wesley Chapel on the Pasco County line, acts as a way station for the Dachshund Adoption, Rescue and Education organization, which facilitates rescues of the long, low dogs commonly called “wiener” dogs.The Florida-based, nonprofit organization, rescues dogs from central and north Florida animal shelters, provides them with veterinary care and finds them foster homes. It also screens potential adopters and works to place the dogs in permanent homes.“We take them no matter what condition they are in,” said Alicia Duval, DARE vice president. “As long as we can financially afford it and have a foster home to put them in.” Her mother, Pat Duval, senior vice president of Central Bank, uses her glass-enclosed office as a temporary place for DARE-rescued dogs to wait until transport arrives to take them to foster homes in places like Gainesville, Lakeland and Jacksonville. Alicia arranges for the dogs to make a stop on what Pat has nicknamed “the underground railroad,” because of its central location for many DARE volunteers. So far, about 10 dogs have her office while awaiting pickup — much to the delight of her dog-loving coworkers. The office is also a convenient place for people to bring donations of needed items. “It’s nice to help the animals in need,” said supporter Margaret Kisala. “Especially with the economy, more dogs are in need.” Kisala, who lives in Wesley Chapel, stopped by on July 17 to drop off a dog stroller and other goodies. The minority-owned community bank, which opened about four years ago, is staffed by a slew of dog owners, many of whom support rescue organizations, Pat said. Throughout the years, it has supported DARE with silent auction items, donations and more. “The bank has been very good to us,” Alicia said. “They allow the dogs to stay at the office and have given us several donations over the years. They really believe in the community, and I don’t just say that.” In keeping with that support, Mary Ann Yaney, branch manager at Central Bank, presented a $500 check on July 17 to DARE, representing the “Gold Paw” sponsorship level, for the group’s upcoming Dox-aPalooza fundraising event at November’s Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland. DARE rescues about 100 dogs per year, Alicia said. Nearly all of the money it raises is used to cover such things as insurance, vet bills, taxes and other expenses. Volunteers take care of the administrative duties, transport the dogs and handle other tasks. “No one gets paid,” Alicia said. Right now, there are about 20 active DARE fosters living in homes around the state. Alicia, mom to local celebrity dachshund Forrest Gump (you can find him on Facebook), has been around the dogs all of her life and started with DARE several years ago as a volunteer. She, along with Pat, her dad and grandmother, live in Tampa with a houseful of dogs (dachshunds, naturally), including two soon-to-be DARE dachshund mix puppies, recently rescued with their mother. All three were tied outside to a tree but will now find loving homes thanks to DARE.

One mill represents $1 of tax on every thousand dollars of taxable property value. For example, a home valued at $75,000 after homestead exemptions would be responsible for $551.78 in school taxes, compared to $550.58 the previous year.This year’s increase is coming from the state education commissioner’s office, which sets what local school boards must tax to receive state funding. Pasco school officials can only modify tax rates involving local discretionary and capital improvement funds. Those two areas will stay the same at a total of 2.248 mills. The school board is looking to raise $151.1 million through local taxes as part of an overall $1.05 billion budget. The remaining dollars come from state and federal sources. Last May, an internal report showed the district had a shortfall of $26.4 million going into the 2013-14 budget year, fueled primarily by $5.3 million in retirement cost increases and $3.5 million in overall salary increases. It is the sixth consecutive year that the school district has had to deal with multi-million-dollar budget shortfalls. The school board, acting on recommendations by Superintendent Kurt Browning, has cut media specialists, literacy coaches and technology specialists. It also has closed the campuses of Shady Hills and Quail Hollow elementary schools, which are both being remodeled, shifting the staff from those schools to new assignments. The school board is slated to take its final vote on the budget on Sept. 17.

MANION Community Editor JEFF ODOM Staff Writer MARY RATHMAN Editorial Assistant ACCOUNTINGMATTHEW MISTRETTA Art Director STEFANIE BURLINGAME Graphic Designer MARY EBERHARD KATHY WELTON ADMINISTRATIVE Woman vs. gator: A sport and food source going mainstreamBy Michael Hinman She arrived to the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce mixer last week at the recently reopened Beef O’ Brady’s at the Village Lakes Shopping Center with long blonde hair, perfectly manicured nails and an inviting smile — to represent her family’s heating and cooling company. But that’s just touching the surface. Charlene Ierna helps service and sell airconditioning units during the day, but her off time is filled with a much different passion: gator hunting. While it might not be the most common form of game hunting in Florida, alligator hunting attracts many adventure-seekers looking to come face-to-face with the state’s largest native reptile. And these hunters don’t use guns. Instead, they stalk their prey with weapons like spear guns or crossbows. “A lot of people still do consider it a little dangerous,” said Ierna, who is vice president of Ierna’s Heating & Cooling in Lutz. “Having been around them my whole life when I would hunt them with my dad as a kid, I’m still not going to say that I’m comfortable with them. You can never be comfortable with something that is more powerful than you are.” Ierna captured her first gator this past Easter during a professionally guided hunt just south of Bartow. Her gator measured 13 feet and 4 inches, and weighed 800 pounds. She lured it close to her with an alligator call, and then while it was still in the water, hit it with her crossbow. A giant bobber, that was part of the arrow she shot, kept the alligator afloat. She finished it off later with a second arrow. “They’re dinosaurs essentially,” Ierna said. “One bow and arrow is not going to do the job, unless it’s a perfect shot hit in the perfect place.” But hunting an alligator is not just for the trophy head. Fully processed gator hides can run for as much as $100 a foot, according to Shane Smith, a Lutz resident who owns The Hungry Gator Meat Market in Plant City. Alligator meat, while not quite ready to replace beef or chicken in most people’s diets, is still quite popular with various eateries, including Hungry Harry’s on US 41, which serves a popular gator sausage sandwich. “Alligators, especially wild alligators, are found only in the Southeast, and there are few other alligator farms outside of there,” Smith said. The alligator meat industry as a whole has grown 500 percent in the past year alone, Smith said. That’s due in large part to cable television shows like “Swamp People” and “Gator Boys” that have whet the nation’s taste buds to alligator steaks and alligator sausage. “Trappers in Florida used to only sell to local restaurants. Now they’re shipping to restaurants all over the country,” Smith said. His meat processing company, open only a year, already is distributing more than 450 pounds of gator meat a week to restaurants, including Charley’s Steak House and Market Fresh Fish in Tampa. For the uninitiated, gator meat tastes a bit like chicken, believe it or not, and has a texture probably best described as those found in certain types of fish. But it does have some significant health benefits. “It’s a very lean meat, low in cholesterol and high in protein,” Smith said. “It has a higher protein count than in chicken or tuna.” Ierna, in the meantime, is already gearing up for her next alligator hunt. She’s heading to St. John’s River in September with the hopes of picking up two more gators to add to her collection. This time, Ierna will be without a professional guide. She’ll be hunting an animal with heightened senses of smell and sight that could turn the tables on a hunter in an instant. “My personal opinion, and I even tell my kids this,” Ierna said. “They are far more intimidated by you than what you think. They don’t want anything to do with us.” But still: “You have to be wise and be alert, and you certainly can’t be relaxed. You can’t just sit and look and just hope everything goes well. You have to be attentive to what’s going on.” Charlene Ierna and Larry DeLucenay show off their gator-hunting prowess during last week’s Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce’s regular mixer at the Land O’ Lakes Beef O’ Brady’s. The trophy table is lined with heads and skins of what were once fierce reptiles in Florida’s waters. The gators are hunted, but are then used for not only their hides, but for food as well.

The nonprofit organization, which began operations in 2009, offers a free array of services, including pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and information on topics including fetal development, childbirth, lactation and baby care. The organization grew faster than expected, said Peter Castellani, executive director of the center, which has locations in Land O’ Lakes and Wesley Chapel. The organization opened a second location in Wesley Chapel because the demand was growing so quickly, Castellani said. The Wesley Chapel center now has 18 clients, and the Land O’ Lakes center averages more than 100 client visits per month. Castellani began the pregnancy center after being laid off from his job at IBM and feeling called by God to pursue this work. The center’s Land O’ Lakes location is at 3632 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., Suite 108, and its Wesley Chapel location is at 5854 Argerian Drive, Suite 101. The center is partnering with Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, Castellani said. “They’re actually doing the sonograms.” Oasis helps women ranging from teens to women in their 40s, with most being in their 20s and 30s. “There are a lot of people who need help,” Castellani said. “It’s not only low-income families, but it is middle-class families as well.” For information about Oasis or to access its services, call (813) 406-4965 in Land O’ Lakes, call (813) 618-5037 in Wesley Chapel, or email Jack Buttafuoco sits behind just some of the groceries he collected in a personal food drive to feed the hungry. (Photo by B.C. Manion)By B.C. Manion Nine-year-old Jack Buttafuoco and his mom, Melissa, recently were at a Dunkin’ Donuts when they saw an advertisement in The Laker/Lutz News for a summer food drive to help fight hunger locally. The Seven Oaks youngster was inspired to get involved to help stock the pantry at Feeding America Tampa Bay-Suncoast Branch. The elementary school student collected canned foods, pasta, peanut butter and other items from friends, neighbors and family members. He even pitched in $26 of his allowance to buy soup and other items to help stock the food bank, which provides items for various food pantries. He said he feels sad when he thinks about the hungry people who need the food, but is glad that he can help. He encourages others to do the same. Anyone else who would like to help can bring their contributions to The Laker/Lutz News, 3632 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., Suite 102, in Land O’ Lakes. The items that are needed most are canned meats, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, pasta and rice.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Melanie CaseyIts not every day that one gets to pet an opossum. But recently, at EastWest Animal Hospital in Lutz, Barley the opossum was in for cold laser therapy to treat the edema in his paws. Barleys doctor, veterinarian Linda Register opened the small animal practice nearly three years ago and strives to combine Eastern medicine and philosophies with traditional Western practices. Dr. Registers interest in alternative therapies began in 1998 when her cat, Butterball, developed bone cancer in the spine. It was a death sentence,Ž Costantino said. However, Dr. Register researched herbs and treated the cat, which lived for an additional year. Since then, the doctor embraced Eastern medicine as an adjunct to Western practices. In fact, she is the only certified veterinary acupuncturist in the Land O Lakes/Lutz area,Ž Costantino noted. We want to treat healthy pets and keep them in balance,Ž said Dennis Costantino, Registers husband and clinic administrator. Finding causes, not treating problems. Its the cause that matters.Ž In keeping with that philosophy, the hospital offers an array of wellness programs that not only help keep pets healthy, but also save their owners money. The plans are geared toward an animals age (pediatric, adult and senior) and are available in basic or enhanced versions with the enhanced version offering a savings of 45 percent (up to $335) per year. The plan is an affordable way to ensure a pets wellness without pet owners worrying about coming up with a lump sum or skipping out on important treatments. Plans for your pets regular care are laid out for you, Costantino said. Its not a surprise.Ž The enhanced pediatric plan, for instance, includes five exam visits, all core vaccinations, deworming treatments, microchip implantation with registration, a years worth of heartworm and flea preventatives along with a spay or neuter surgical procedure (complete with blood work and fluid therapy) and much more. But, its not just puppies and kittens that benefit from East-West Animal Hospitals wellness plans adult and senior pets do too. Senior plans, for example, include x-rays, blood work and urine screenings. Finding and treating health problems early can mean a longer, happier life for your pet. Monthly plan costs start at just $16 a month; all plans require a $99 enrollment fee, and monthly fees are automatically drafted each month. The clinic introduced wellness plans about a month ago. Since then, many clients have taken advantage of these incredible programs. The plans are geared toward preventive wellness; they do not cover emergencies and are not pet insurance. However, pet insurance is a great compliment to the East-West Animal Hospital wellness programs. Dr. Register received her DVM degree from the University of Florida in 1996 and received her acupuncture certification in 2009 from the Chi Institute. Dr. Register is a member of several local veterinary boards and advisory committees. East-West Animal Hospital is located in the Tropical Village Plaza, 1524 Land O Lakes Blvd. in Lutz. Open Mondays and Fridays, 7:30am to 6pm and Tuesdays through Thursdays 7:30am to 8pm.

The making of ‘Beat Pan!’The documentary itself, called “Beat Pan!” will explore the experience of the competition from the perspective of each of the bands that Rivera and Berich are performing with. Each band has its own musical culture and history, with many stories ready to be shared about their love of steelpan. The goal of “Beat Pan!” is to introduce more people back home to the art of steelpan, creating a deeper appreciation for the percussion-based art in the United States, where such instruments are still considered novel. Even before the trip, Rivera has worked to bring steelpan more into the mainstream, incorporating it into various genres of music including reggae and smooth jazz. That has made it tough for her to perform at different jazz venues around the country, because promoters are not always looking to change things up. “What I’m trying to do is really kind of different,” Rivera said. “It’s really hard for them to accept it. They want to hear saxophone and guitar, so I incorporate a lot of that into my act, and then slowly move to the steelpan, as I get the audiences warmed up.” Making the trip and producing the documentary is going to cost money, and both Rivera and Berich have already begun fundraising both through PayPal donations and through crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. The goal initially is to raise $25,000, but she will likely need $50,000 for the complete project from start to finish. “If this is going to work, people have to buy into this,” Rivera said. “We’re out looking for corporate sponsors and individual sponsors, and we’ll keep working until we get all the money raised.” In the meantime, Rivera is focused on getting ready for the trip, which does have her nervous. “I’m terrified actually,” she said. “These are people (in Trinidad) from the age of 5 who have learned how to play the steelpan. I’ve been doing it for 10 years. They know what they’re doing. They know what works and doesn’t work, and I have to find a way to fit in.” For details on Rivera’s trip and how to participate, visit her website at By Marie Abramov Special to The Laker/Lutz News Since the buses and trucks couldn’t carry them up the goat path on the mountainous outskirts of Tegucigalpa, Crystal McDaniel and 55 other volunteers trudged up the clifflike slope — lugging hammers, chainsaws, belts and other construction tools. They were on a mission to build three wooden houses on the hill, but first had to negotiate large rocks to get there. One home was for a disabled woman who had never been off the mountain.Dark clouds formed over the building site and the nearby lush terrain, and heavy showers soaked the volunteers. But the downpour didn’t dampen their enthusiasm.They donned ponchos and worked through the wet weather — working in three teams and finishing three houses by the end of the day. “It’s the hardest I ever worked in my life,” McDaniel said of her stay in Honduras. Besides making it more difficult to build, the rainstorm caused water to stream down the goat path making the rocks slippery as the construction crew headed down the mountain at the end of the day. McDaniel and her teenage son Matthew made the trip as part of an outreach organized by Northwest Tampa Church of Christ. The Lutz residents are parishioners of the church and spent two weeks toward the end of June building houses for the poor in Honduras. The volunteers built 37 one-room homes, which measure 14-by-14. Each home is valued at about $1,200. There’s very little to no public assistance in Honduras, which is the second poorest country in Central America, according to the CIA’s website. About one-third of the 8.5 million people living in Honduras are underemployed, and more than half of the residents live in poverty. Impoverished conditions are especially great in rural and indigenous areas, like the three villages where the volunteers helped. The nation also has the highest murder rate in the world. “Up in the mountains is where we worked,” said Keith Boyer, a leading organizer on this trip. “It’s just the poorest of the poor. They squat on the land, and then they get ownership. And then we’ll build as many houses as we can.” Crystal was motivated by a desire to help those less fortunate. “We’re here to serve others — seriously,” she said. “I was born and raised with a family that — you (live) a life of service.” Matthew said he went to Honduras because it was a new and different experience. “I do it to grow closer to the youth group that goes down there,” he said. “And then it’s nice to go help people who don’t have anything. Even though it’s hard work, building the houses is actually kind of fun, and you get to see another country.” The nondenominational Northwest Tampa Church of Christ, located at Sheldon Road in Tampa, gets parishioners from all over the Tampa Bay area. Church organizers have been planning annual trips to Honduras for the last 13 years. It costs $1,650 per adult and $400 per teen to go on the trip, and parishioners had to pay the full or partial amount depending on how actively they donated and participated in church fundraisers and other activities. Crystal paid more than $1,000 for herself and $400 for Matthew to go. The mission trip also received funds raised through food sales, car washes and other church events. All of the money went toward food, lodging, plane tickets, lumber and other materials needed to build the homes. The houses built by the volunteers consisted of four wooden walls, a floor and a tin roof. Residents who want smaller rooms can use clotheslines and blankets to create separate spaces. The houses have no plumbing or electricity. Meals are cooked outside with a makeshift stove. Matthew said residents who want electricity have to buy their own wires and connect them from their homes to the main source of electricity set up in these villages by the government. Each home has a family with up to nine people living in it. “They have nothing – absolutely nothing but the clothes on their back,” Crystal said. “And they’re the happiest people you ever saw.” She observed an abundance of affection, communication and interdependency within families that led to joy and satisfaction in life. The villagers were very friendly with each other and the volunteers, Matthew said. Besides receiving new housing, each family also received an adult and children’s Bible in Spanish from the mission. On their three flights from Miami to Honduras, the church group took 37 large duffel bags full of shoes, small toys, shampoos, 150 dresses and many other small items to give out in Honduras. The volunteers also managed to buy and assemble 300 bags of staple foods like rice, beans, sugar, lard, coffee and pasta. They gave one bag per family that moved into the new houses and their neighbors. McDaniel and her son said they found the trip so rewarding they plan to go back again.Building homes for the poor abroad Crystal McDaniel holds a wooden plank that’s destined to become part of a new home.“Most families in Florida own a computer of one type or another, and we expect that many will take advantage of the tax savings to purchase computers for their kids or upgrade their own,” McAllister said. “And you’ll see great deals on clothes, shoes and school supplies. It’s a winning proposition for Florida’s families and for our retailers, because we’ll see a good boost in commerce over the weekend. “Stores are actively competing with each other for customers, and that usually means plenty of markdowns to attract shoppers,” he added. Retailers in Florida are expected to boost staffing by about 20 percent during the tax holiday weekend to accommodate shoppers. In general, retailers expect an average increase of between 30 and 40 percent in store traffic over the weekend because of the sales tax holiday, McAllister said. A National Retail Federation survey predicts that families with school-aged children will spend an average of $634.78 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics in 2013, down from $688.62 last year. McAllister noted, however, that “because of the tax holiday, retail stores generally perform a little better in Florida than in states without a sales tax holiday.” The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel historically sees more shoppers at its stores during August because of back-to-school sales and an uptick in activity during the sales tax holiday, said Debbie Detweiler, director of marketing. It’s also a fun time, Detweiler said. “We enjoy seeing parents shopping with their kids for back-to-school.” For more details on items that are exempt under the tax-free holiday, go to the Florida Department of Revenue’s website at and click on “Sales Tax Holiday, Aug. 2-4, 2013.”813-909-2800 / COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS July 31, 2013 12 Origins of the SteelpanThe steelpan might appear as something not much more than a metal pan on a stand, but it’s a percussion instrument that originated from The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the 19th century. Steelpans come in all shapes and sizes, and can produce all kinds of sounds, ranging from a bass to a soprano pitch. The World Steelband Music Festival has been a staple of Trinidad society since 1964. Panorama, where Bickley Rivera hopes to compete next year, dates back to about the same time.

By Jeff Odom For the first time in the program’s nineyear history, the Bishop McLaughlin Hurricanes are in a major district — Class 3A-District 4 — that will now make them eligible for the postseason for the first time since 2007. That has players excited for what could be coming down the road. “We’re a private school and still a very young program,” senior quarterback R.J. Perciavalle said. “Moving into a district was necessary for moving the program forward.” District 4, Perciavalle said, is one of the best districts in the state, and that’s going to be a challenge for the Hurricanes. “Obviously we’re going to go out and try to win every game,” he said. “We know we’re young, but we’re trying as hard as we can, and we want to go out and prove ourselves.” In its first district appearance since the 2007-08 season when it was in the now-defunct Class1B-District 6, Bishop McLaughlin will match up with Berkley Prep, Tampa Catholic, Fort Meade, Frostproof and Lakeland Christian. Three of those teams made the playoffs last season, and none had a losing record. Bishop McLaughlin, however, finished last season at 4-7 as an FHSAA Independent in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference. Intimidated? Not at all, Perciavalle said. “We’ve been picked last in a lot of preseason rankings and stuff like that, and we just want to show that we’re here to fight and not just some pushover team,” Perciavalle said. One of the blueprints to how Bishop McLaughlin plans to reach its success can be found in the school’s cross-town rivals — Carrollwood Day School. The Hurricanes lost to the Patriots 41-7 in their inaugural spring game back in May. Yet the young program has drawn plenty of comparisons to Carrollwood Day, which went to the Class 2A region finals last season just three years after moving into its first district, 2A-5, because of how they are building their program. Perciavalle threw for 1,319 yards with 15 total touchdowns last season and expects to use those numbers to help lead the team to a stronger upcoming season. Thirdyear coach Derrick Alexander said after the spring game that it will take leadership from players like Perciavalle to set up the program for success.“We want to get stronger and in better shape,” Alexander said. “Just because we don’t have the big numbers, our guys have to be in maximum shape, because they’re playing on both sides of the ball.” That’s even more important this season with a much tougher schedule ahead of Bishop McLaughlin. “We’re trying to put in some extra work in the weight room, on the field and just do everything you can do to just better prepare ourselves,” Perciavalle said. “We know it’s not going to be easy, but we’re definitely up for the challenge.” —Statistics as entered by coaches on; Follow Jeff Odom on Twitter @JOdomLakerVoted Florida’s No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports Bishop McLaughlin football enters new eraBy Jeff Odom Former Steinbrenner High baseball player Logan LaPace has signed with Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, coach John Crumbley announced on July 25. LaPace, a right-handed pitcher and 2013 graduate, went 7-2 as a senior last season with a 1.67 ERA, two saves and three complete games for the Warriors. He told The Laker/Lutz News in a text message that he felt good after making an official visit to the school the day his commitment was announced. “It’s still so surreal to think that I’ve been granted an opportunity to play collegiate baseball at its highest level,” LaPace said. “I can’t wait to make the most of it.” The 6-foot-1, 170-pound LaPace also earned wins for the Warriors in the Class 7ADistrict 9 finals against Wiregrass Ranch, and in the region quarterfinals over Seminole High. He is the second Steinbrenner player in program history to commit to Eastern Michigan after Chad Witkowski did in 2011. Witkowski, however, later opted to attend junior college. Eastern Michigan is an NCAA Division I program that plays in the Mid-American Conference. The Eagles finished with an overall record of 26-28 last season.Former Steinbrenner player transfersFormer Steinbrenner High second baseman and outfielder Christian Diaz has transferred from Jacksonville University to Eastern Florida State College due to personal reasons, he told The Laker/Lutz News.Diaz, who graduated from Steinbrenner in 2012, was set to enter his second season with the Dolphins after redshirting his freshman year. But after the dismissal of coach Terry Alexander and a lack of scholarship funds for him this year, Diaz said it was time to leave the Division I program. “I’m excited to have a new start,” Diaz said in a text message. “Hopefully, things will work out a little better this go-around.” Diaz batted .343 with 17 RBIs and one home run during his senior year at Steinbrenner. Eastern Florida State College, formerly Brevard Community College, is a National Junior College Athletic Association program located in Brevard County that competes in the Southern Conference.

Wharton High senior quarterback Chase Litton announced on his Twitter page July 26 that he has decided to back out of his verbal commitment with the Bulls to explore other options. “I want to apologize to USF, but I will be decommitting and opening my recruitment up for my senior year,” Litton tweeted. Litton’s decision comes a month after he made the choice to join the program alongside firstyear Bulls coach Willie Taggart in front of a live television audience on Bright House Sports Network. According to Yahoo Sports’, Litton was on a trip to Gainesville July 27 and 28 to visit the University of Florida. He also has interest from several other Division I programs including Louisiana State University, South Carolina, Florida, Miami and Notre Dame. As a junior, Litton compiled an area-leading 2,732 yards with 23 touchdowns with 10 interceptions for the Wildcats. He was also the top quarterback this summer for the IMG Academy’s Team Tampa 7-on-7 squad, which won its second consecutive national championship. If the 6-foot-6 Litton kept his commitment to USF through National Signing Day in February, the three-star recruit would have battled returning starter Matt Floyd, Penn State transfer Steven Bench, Mike White of Fort Lauderdale High School and former Jesuit standout Tommy Eveld for the starting job. —Follow Jeff Odom on Twitter @JOdomLaker B y Jeff Odo m jodo m @cnewspu b m Noah Makarome is no stranger to dominating opponents on the tennis court.

Williams was hired as the Warriors’ first coach when the school opened in 2009. Before that, he was an assistant principal and athletic director at Blake High, and was also a driver’s education instructor at Steinbrenner. In 1971, Williams made collegiate history by breaking the color barrier as the first African-American men’s basketball player at the University of Florida. He finished his fouryear Gator career with 249 total assists while earning a degree in physical education. “I guess when you look back at it, you see that you’re a pioneer,” Williams told the Ocala Star-Banner in 2006. “But at the time, I wasn’t really thinking about it that way. I was just thinking about it as playing college basketball, winning in the SEC and getting my degree.” Williams had an overall record of 30-58 during his tenure with the Warriors, including a program-best 13-11 last season.
