A GOLFERS diet consists of lots of GREENS By B.C. Manion Patrons of New River Branch Library can breathe a sigh of relief. The Pasco County Commission voted unanimously last week to keep open both the Wesley Chapel library as well as the Centennial Park Branch Library in Holiday. The decision came after library supporters reminded commissioners how important those libraries are in the communities where they operate. One woman described the New River Branch as having the welcoming feel conveyed on the television sitcom “Cheers,” saying it’s a place “where everyone knows your name.” She told commissioners that the library is a community gathering spot, serving everyone “from the tiniest child up through seniors.” Diane Halterman, a former county library system branch manager from Zephyrhills, also weighed in on the topic.Commissioners spare New River librarySee LIBRARY, page 12 Pasco approves virtual school, despite having reservationsBy Michael Hinman They didn’t like it, but the Pasco County School Board earlier this month approved the application of a virtual charter school that was once under state investigation. In a 3-1 vote, with Alison Crumbley dissenting, the board allowed the Southwest Florida Virtual Charter Board to open a virtual charter school in Pasco County — as long as the school meets stringent quality guidelines.It turned a rather significant page in the evolution of virtual education with the expansion of such services in the county. But then the landscape shifted significantly when the state-run Florida Virtual School announced massive layoffs after an enrollment drop and changes to how the state funds it. The future of educating students no matter where they are is at a precipice, and virtual education must find a way to not only survive, but thrive, says Pasco eSchool principal Joanne Glenn. “It’s a great choice option for a variety of families in a variety of circumstances,” Glenn said. Virtual schools are typically done through a computer and Internet connection, and were designed for students who were geographically challenged to get specific coursework from a bricks and mortar operation. Today, however, these types of schools are being used more and more by students looking to supplement what they’re already doing in an actual school classroom. “Students in kind of a traditional setting began to supplement their instruction through virtual schools,” Glenn said. “They can take courses to recover credits, or even take courses that can accelerate their workload, to help them complete graduation requirements in their off time, so they can free up space to do a dual enrollment court or advanced placement.” By Michael Hinman After a dramatic and highly publicized shutdown Aug. 10, Plantation Palms Golf Club is back in business, reopening its links to golfers Aug. 16. Yet what caused the golf course to shut down in the first place continues to linger in some minds. “It was just a culmination of a lot of things that led up to the closing, but mostly the economy,” said Jason Ray, who co-owns the golf club with Mitch Osceola and Steve McDonald through MJS Golf Group LLC. “It’s been too hot, and it’s been raining, and the culmination of all that, just resulted in not a lot of people playing golf. “Summertime is always tough for all the golf courses.” Ray and the other owners purchased the golf club in May 2011, using a $2.18 million mortgage through Native American Bank of Denver. The 5-acre course features 18 holes, a driving range, a clubhouse and a lounge. The course is the nucleus of the Plantation Palms community that surrounds it just off Collier Parkway near Parkway Boulevard, said Steve Pitts, who owns the golf pro shop at the course. “For the homeowners there, their best shot is to have these guys who are owners work this thing out,” said Pitts, a Land O’ Lakes resident who owns Steve’s World of Golf in Hudson. “It needs to be a positive, positive business in the center of that great community. And yeah, it’s going through some tough times between the owners right now, but I can tell you from being on the inside, those problems are just about done.” Pitts had pulled his pro shop out of Plantation Palms earlier this year, despite it being his top sales location out of his 18 shops around the southeast. “The bills weren’t getting paid, and we had to pull out,” Pitts said. Since Friday, however, Steve’s World of Golf is slowly moving back in because he’s encouraged by what he said was a management shakeup that would reduce the ownership team from three to either two, or possibly even one. David Brooks, an avid golfer and Plantation Palms resident, said he heard the same reports of management changes during the golf club’s down time. Plantation Palms Golf Club closed for about a week earlier this month, citing a poor time of year thanks to summer heat … and summer rain. The club reopened quickly, and is set to offer a prime rib dinner to members Friday night.

M anion bcman i Pasco County commissioners spent hours whittling away at different portions of the county’s $1.16 billion budget last week, but didn’t make a dent in a proposed tax hike. Based on the county’s proposed millage rate, officials say the owner of a $100,000 house, assuming a $50,000 exemption, would pay $33 more a year. Scores of taxpayers have contacted commissioners voicing opposition, but commissioners continue to move forward with the proposed increase. The proposed property tax rate is 7.49 mills, up from last year’s rate of 6.86 mills. The proposed municipal fire rate is 1.71 mills, up from 1.54 mills last year. Each mill is equal to $1 for every $1,000 of taxable value. Commissioners did not reduce the proposed rates, despite rejecting a request by Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco to increase his $91 million budget by $500,000. The sheriff initially proposed a $93 million budget. County officials recommended a $91 million budget, then Nocco came and asked commissioners for $500,000 more. However, commissioners noted the sheriff’s budget has continued to go up, while other county departments absorbed cuts. “I think he’s got to learn to live within his budget,” Commissioner Pat Mulieri said. “I just think there is a limit.” While rejecting the half-million bump, commissioners agreed to Nocco’s request to use Penny for Pasco funds to purchase unmarked detective cars and other sheriff’s office vehicles. While they didn’t lower the proposed tax rate, commissioners made about $700,000 in cuts in the proposed budget to plug an unexpected revenue gap. The changes were needed because Mike Fasano, the county’s newly appointed tax collector, informed the county that it had overestimated the amount of money his office would return to the county by about $720,000. Fasano recently assumed the office that was held by Mike Olson, who died suddenly in June. To help balance their proposed budget, commissioners trimmed an allocation for amaster facilities plan, eliminated a proposal to beef up code enforcement, reduced the amount of funding for a communications office among other things. They’re still about $52,000 from where they need to be.Commissioner Henry Wilson, who voted against the tentative tax rate in July, remains opposed. “I still can’t support this,” he said.Commission Chairman Ted Schrader told Wilson that he’s being disingenuous, unless he can recommend specific budget cuts.“I have not completed looking at the book,” Wilson said. “I’m still trying to figure out places to cut.” Commissioners are set to have their first public hearing on the proposed budget on Sept. 10, with a second and final hearing on Sept. 24.Pasco residents expect 9 percent tax hike Infant care classesThe obstetrics program at Medical Center of Trinity is offering an infant care class to provide parents with the knowledge and skills to make their transition into parenting smooth and comfortable.

Local woman sees world through new lensBy Mi chael H i n m an m h i n m an@cnewspu b m For two years, longtime Lutz resident Linda Reynolds found her home in a country whose population is about the size of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties put together. The Republic of Macedonia, formed in the early 1990s following the breakup of Yugoslavia, was never a place Reynolds thought she’d ever found herself in. But that trip changed her life. “I was a business manager, and one of the original employees of Transitions Optical back in 1992,” Reynolds said. “I helped to grow the business from a very small company to a worldwide leader in optical lenses.” But after 18 years on the job, Reynolds knew it was time for something different. It was exactly when she found the Peace Corps. “It’s something that I wanted to do ever since I was a child,” said Reynolds, who turned 57 last weekend. “I truly believe that the way the world gets to be a better place is by people connecting, and I think the Peace Corps is a fabulous way to serve the country.”It takes a v i llageAfter a lengthy application process and extensive training, Reynolds found herself on a plane to Eastern Europe in 2011. While traditional Peace Corps jobs are thought of as doctors and language teachers, Reynolds was taking a different path: community and business development. She set up shop in Kriva Palanka, a small town in the northeastern part of Macedonia, not far from the Bulgaria border where more than 14,000 people live. Reynolds connected with community leaders there to find out what the small town needed, and how she could make a difference. One of her first targets was a fire station that probably hadn’t been touched since the 1950s, Reynolds said. It was in desperate need of renovation, so with the help of a $4,000 grant she obtained, Reynolds worked with the firefighters to spruce up the place. “I got board, and they made cabinets,” she said, “I got PVC pipe, and they built a bathroom. I bought laminate floor, and they laid it. At the end of all of it, these firefighters had a professional place to work and to live, and every single firefighter contributed their time to make it happen.”The r i ght stuffPeace Corps volunteers like Reynolds are really diehard individuals, said Alethea Parker,public affairs specialist for Peace Corps in Atlanta. “It’s a large commitment to be away from your family and friends for two years,” she said. “But from our perspective, it’s very rewarding and impactful … and it is important work.” The only requirements to become a Peace Corps volunteer are being at least 18 years old, and a U.S. citizen. But getting selected, that is much more daunting. “Our application process is quite competitive,” Parker said. “Most of our programs do require at least a bachelor’s degree, and we are typically looking at several years of full-time professional work experience.” But the number of applications doesn’t mean the Peace Corps isn’t in need of good candidates. With a little more than 8,000 slots available around the world and an annual budget about the size of an oil company’s daily profits, the Peace Corps must be very selective. Being a Peace Corps volunteer has its advantages beyond just helping out overseas. Medical expenses are covered at 100 percent, and a decent stipend is offered to cover day-to-day living expenses.L i fe back homeReynolds had a small apartment in Kriva Palanka where she adopted two cats — not a very common pet in that part of the world. “People thought it was very, very odd that I had cats in my apartment,” Reynolds said. “There, cats are outside animals. So it was very hard to go to the supermarket in my little town and find the supplies I was looking for to take care of my cats.” Reynolds has only been back in the United States for about four months, and after 34 years living in Lutz, has now settled in Atlanta closer to her children. Reynolds hasn’t quite decided what she wants to do with her life now that she’s back, but she’s definitely a much different person than when she left two years ago. “I find myself less frantic,” she said. “I don’t have a job, but I’m not frantic about it. It’s too early for me to retire, and I’m too old to start a new career. But I would like to find something that will allow me to contribute to something in a meaningful way. “I’m just trying to get my sea legs back and not rush into anything. And I’m fortunate that I don’t have to.” The Peace Corps currently has 36 volunteers from the Tampa Bay area serving overseas, and more than 850 volunteers from the region have participated since President John F. Kennedy founded the program in 1961. Right now, however, the Peace Corps needs 1,000 volunteers, and it is recruiting now. Details can be found online at “If a young person from any community could go and spend time in a village some place in the world and come back to use everything they learned, we would be a better country as leaders,” Reynolds said. “We would definitely have a more worldly viewpoint that would make us more sensitive in our roles as leaders of the world.” Linda Reynolds makes her way across a rickety bridge not far from her host family’s house in the Kratovo area of Macedonia.

Lee Moffitt Cancer Center. The first fundraiser brought in $460. The next year, the Krewe of Blackbeard’s Revenge joined in and matched Mincin’s $900, for a total of $1,800. Mincin and the Krewe worked tirelessly to put together this year’s event, and $3,600 was raised. Guests brought a favorite dish to add to the endless and fabulous feast. Entertainment by local groups included Allen-Griffin, Dead Man’s Rodeo and Smoke N Run. Local establishments including Wolf’s Den, Village Inn, Westshore Pizza, Tire Kingdom, Uptown Pizza, Pizza Villa, Benedetto’s, Texas Roadhouse and several others donated raffle prizes. The grand prizes included four guitars, including several autographed by Kid Rock, Tom Petty, Jimmy Page and the band Seven Dust. Land O’ Lakes resident Steve Wallace won the Kid Rock guitar.A heated swimming pool and a fireworks show added to the event. Krewe members Jean “Eliza Dagger” White and Cheryl Stewart worked the audience raising the donations even higher. Mincin said he is overwhelmed at how large his private event has become, and added that many cancer survivors attend. Numerous people give their time and labor, and Mincin said he wishes to thank all of them. Next year’s goal is $5,000, and Mincin is now contemplating a fall event to help support All Children’s Hospital.Traditional party-turned-fundraiser hauls in $3,600 for cancer ‘Cuz’ Gary Mincin has had his private party for nine years running, and his goal for next year is $5,000 to benefit the H.

Manion Pasco County and Saddlebrook Resort Tampa are joining forces to host the 2014 Golfweek Senior Amateur Championship and the Golfweek Junior Tour Championship early next year.The Pasco County Commission voted unanimously to approve a $50,000 sponsorship in a joint venture with Saddlebrook and Golfweek Magazine. “I think this is a phenomenal opportunity,” Commissioner Jack Mariano said. If the county can get people to look at Pasco, especially at the right time of year, it could open new possibilities, not only for Saddlebrook, but for other quality area golf courses, Mariano said. “The promotional value to Pasco County, highlighting some strong assets that we have, is tremendous,” he said.“Maybe this will be the beginning of a lot of opportunities,” said Commission Chairman Ted Schrader, noting the county’s success with the national lacrosse tournament that takes place annually in Wesley Chapel.This partnership is the tourism office’s first foray into promoting Pasco’s golf amenities, said Eric Keaton of the Office of Tourism Development. Revenues from bed taxes pale in comparison to the promotional value of the venture. Besides Saddlebrook, the county has 20plus courses, Keaton said. “Golfweek and Saddlebrook are going to work together to not only promote their destination, but also a number of other golf destinations in the county,” Keaton said. Keaton told commissioners the tourism office has the money to cover the expense because its revenues exceeded expectations, and costs were kept below budget. The value of the partnership “exceeds the purchase price two-fold,” agenda documents supporting the proposal noted, adding that Golfweek is the “Cadillac of golfing advertising platforms.”The senior tournament is scheduled for Jan. 15-17 and is expected to involve 80 players on one golf course. The event should generate 400-plus room nights, as golfers arrive the day before the three-day tournament, and depart the day after the event ends.Spouses are expected to accompany the senior golfers, potentially bringing in more revenue to the county.The junior tournament, which will be in January or February, is expected to draw 40 to 60 golfers on a single course and will involve two days of golf, the agenda materials read.The event is projected to create 240-plus room nights with golfers accompanied by their families.Economic boom? County commits $50,000 to Saddlebrook golf Pasco County’s tourism council is using golf courses like the one at Saddlebrook Resort to help highlight the sporting opportunities available to tourists.

The Pasco Hernando Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has developed a competition that gives four solid charities a chance to raise a lot of money, but only one can win. Havana Casino Night is slated for Aug. 29 beginning at 6 p.m. at Quail Hollow, 6225 Old Pasco Road in Wesley Chapel. Presented by Rivera Chiropractic, the evening will include hand-rolled cigars, a cash bar, casino games, and music from Jorge Laureano & His Fiesta Orchestra. The biggest event of the night, however, is who will walk away with half the casino night jackpot: Will it be Big Brothers Big Sisters? Helping Hands Food Pantry of Wesley Chapel? The Wesley Chapel Lions Club? Or, the Oasis Pregnancy Care Centers? “We didn’t want to be the ones that said let’s choose, so we decided to leave that up to the public,” said John Jay, president of PHHCC, and owner of Finest DeeJays in Wesley Chapel. “Staying with our casino theme, everyone will place their bets on who will win half the proceeds.” The decision will be made by who ends up with the most poker chips by the end of the night. Those poker chips will come from each person attending the casino night, encouraging all four organizations to bring as many potential supporters as possible. The other half of the proceeds will go toward PHHCC’s scholarship fund, which will help three students this year seek out a college education. Even if they don’t take home a bucket of quarters, each charity will have a chance to share what they do — and what they need — with the community, Jay said. For instance, Big Brothers Big Sisters always has a need for Latino and Latina mentors. Helping Hands feeds hundreds of people throughout Wesley Chapel every week. And the Lions Club is raising money to build a park especially for handicapped children. Oasis supplies food and other needs for pregnant women who have nowhere else to turn. “These four organizations all give back to the community,” Jay said. “Our main goal is to give back to the community as well, and to give these organizations a helping hand. And this way, we can bring a light to each and every one of them.” Casino night will make one charity a lucky winner If you go...The Havana Casino Night Fundraiser takes place Aug. 29 from 6-10 p.m. at Quail Hollow, 6225 Old Pasco Road in Wesley Chapel.

Your feet are the foundation of your body. And when they hurt, your entire body hurts. Thats why Mazon Abboud, DPM, is so passionate about his specialty. As a podiatrist, he can help just about anyone who comes to see him with foot pain at his Florida Medical Clinic practice. I love practicing podiatry because it is good, old-fashioned medicine,Ž said Dr. Abboud. Most first exams take between 30 to 45 minutes because I really focus on listening to the patient, really listening. I usually can diagnose a patients problem before I physically examine them.Ž Dr. Abboud has been practicing podiatry for 10 years. He began his medical career in Philadelphia in 2003 and moved to the Tampa area in 2006, where he worked in private practice for several years in Zephyrhills and Wesley Chapel before joining Florida Medical Clinic last March.The majority of my patients have suffered from foot pain for more than a year and are desperate for relief,Ž said Dr. Abboud. Unfortunately, most wait too long before seeing a doctor. In most cases we can get the patient pain relief within two weeks. It is very satisfying work.ŽThe foot has 28 bones and supports thousands of pounds per square inch, explains Dr. Abboud. Foot problems can be very painful and often affect the entire body, even causing headaches. We put on between 3,000 and 10,000 steps a day, per foot, so healthy feet are an essential part to someones overall well-being,Ž said Dr. Abboud. A podiatrists practice is typically equally divided between three primary areas „ heal pain, foot tumors and Achilles tendinitis. All are painful and fortunately, all very treatable. About 30 percent of Dr. Abbouds patients complain of heel pain „ pain that often feels like sharp needles in the bottom of the foot that often wakes sufferers at night and prevents them from falling back to sleep. Heel pain can be very painful, but thankfully it is almost always treatable,Ž said Dr. Abboud, who explains the condition is the result of chronically infected ligaments at the bottom of the foot. Another common area of complaint, especially among women, is Neuroma. This condition causes painful foot tumors that are caused by tight-fitting shoes and high heels. Dr. Abboud estimates that between 25 and 30 percent of his patients see him for these types of problems. The third largest area of complaint is Achilles tendinitis, which is pain in the back of the heel caused by tight muscles in the leg. Achilles tendinitis is most commonly seen in middleaged men after they begin a new exercise program,Ž said Dr. Abboud. It is often called New Years tendinitis because so many men start out the New Year with a resolution to get fit and overdo it.Ž After diagnosing a patients condition, Dr. Abboud spends a lot of time making sure the patient fully understands their problem and their treatment options. We make sure our patients clearly understand what they must do to get their condition under control,Ž said Dr. Abboud.

But on Sept. 7, they’ll get some visitors of their own: Hundreds of motorcycle riders, just wanting to say thanks. Pasco County Choppers are hitting the road once again for its annual Gratitude Ride, a 50-mile trek from station to station honoring the heroes that don’t get thanked enough. At the same time, these more than 300 bikers raise money for the Pasco County Fire Benevolent Fund, which helps families of firefighters when they need a helping hand of their own.It’s no coincidence this ride happens around the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed 412 emergency workers in New York City alone. Local Realtor Dan Turner is originally from New York, and visited the World Trade Center towers many times before the tragedy. While that fateful day is now 12 years in the past, Turner wants to make sure it’s always remembered.“Some people have forgotten about 9/11; the whole thing has worn off a bit,” said Turner, who is now in his fourth year organizing the event. “We try to bring as much attention to it as possible.”For the second year, the Gratitude Ride goes beyond just a gathering for hog enthusiasts. It’s expanding into a public afterparty at the Quail Hollow Country Club beginning at 1 p.m. There, visitors can enjoy the many motorcycles on display, eat food, enjoy drinks, and hear music from the Greg Billings Band.Funds raised through a raffle and 50-50 will go to the Benevolent Fund.“We’ll be passing some boots around to try and raise a little bit more money,” Turner said, referencing the boot campaigns conducted by firefighters to raise money for the New York City victims on street corners immediately following the terrorist attacks.While the party begins at 1 p.m., the chopper riders will be up much earlier, gathering at the government center at 4111 US 41 in Land O’ Lakes around 9:30 a.m. There, Turner will host a dedication ceremony, and just after 10 a.m., the bikes will start heading out to their first destination. This year’s stops begin with Station 15 at 11538 Trinity Blvd., in New Port Richey. Station 14 follows at 7800 River Ridge Blvd., also in New Port Richey, before wrapping up the trip at Station 20 at 15900 Little Ranch Road in Brooksville. “We remember the events and honor the lives that were lost,” Turner said of the terrorist attacks. “Closer to home, I wanted to make sure that we recognized our own emergency services, not just after the fact, but all the time. They are the ones that always say it’s just a job, but we all know that they run into danger as we are running away from it.” While there might be stigmas assigned to large groups of motorcyclists thanks to portrayals of them in the movies, the chopper community is actually quite the opposite.“It is a community that gives back,” Turner said. “There’s always some kind of benefit we’re participating in, a lot of toy runs and food drives and things like that. It’s a broad spectrum of people that ride, and they always have an eye for doing something special.”The rain date for this year’s event is Sept. 8.

Pasco started its eSchool in 2009, and last year serviced 5,500 semester courses for 2,300 students. And that’s just for middle school and high school. The elementary eSchool has about 100 students — a smaller number because it requires not only the regular involvement of the student and teacher, but a parent as well. Although interest in virtual schools continues to grow each year, the charter operation offered by the Southwest Florida Virtual Charter Board was met with so much skepticism from the board when it was first introduced last spring that they denied the request. Southwest Florida Virtual appealed that decision to Florida’s Department of Education, prompting school board members to reconsider without risking a lengthy legal battle. An investigation concluded Southwest Florida Virtual hired only certified teachers in Seminole County, but concerns remain. “Student achievement, or the lack thereof, is something we are very worried about,” said Nancy Scowcroft, supervisor of charter schools for Pasco County. “Their school grades are not being posted on the Department of Education’s website, which means they are appealing. I don’t know what these scores look like, but apparently they are not where they want to be.” The county maintains oversight of charter schools to make sure they are meeting specific criteria. With bricks and mortar schools, it means just traveling to different parts of the county when needed. However, to see what’s happening with Florida Virtual Academy of Pasco County, as this new school will be called, it will require regular trips to Daytona Beach. “That means spending more money just to keep an eye on everything,” Scowcroft said. Jeff Kwitowski, a spokesman for Virginiabased K12 Inc., which calls itself the “vendor” for the charter school operations in Florida, points to the fact that the previous claims against the school were unsubstantiated. And even if there was an issue of teachers lacking certification for their particular subject matter, it’s not against the law. The state department of education reports more than 8,700 teachers in Florida’s schools are teaching courses outside their subject certification, Kwitowski said in a statement. He added that Seminole County, which made the complaint, admitted to having 100 teachers without proper certification in the 2011-12 school year alone. “K12 had only three teachers whose certifications were ‘out-of-field,’ and they were quickly corrected,” Kwitowski said. Some of the demand for virtual schools will now be shared by both Florida Virtual Academy and Pasco eSchool. And that alone could very well create a strong future for this newer type of learning, eSchool principal Glenn said, especially since taking at least one virtual course is a graduation requirement for the Class of 2015. “This is the way a lot of employers are delivering on-the-job training now and professional development, and it’s also something that is happening more and more in post-secondary schools, colleges and universities,” Glenn said. “This gives all of our students a chance to have that first experience in a supported environment. So once they get out there in the real world, they’ll be ready.” A Fun Place to Call Home!

OF 813-909-2800 / COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS August 21, 2013 12 “When I moved here in 1985, I was appalled that there were no public libraries on the east side of the county, except for the very, very tiny one in Zephyrhills,” she said. “And Dade City’s library was also very small. I saw the bond issue coming to the county and was thrilled to see libraries go up.” Closing the New River branch would pose a hardship for many young families in Zephyrhills, who work in the service industry and can’t afford to have computers in their homes, Halterman said. Gail Stout, chairwoman of the county’s library advisory board, told commissioners the per capita spending on libraries is $12.07 in Pasco County, compared to the state average of $25 per capita. “You certainly are getting a huge bang for your buck in this portion of your budget,” Stout said. Bob Robertson, also of Zephyrhills, joined with other speakers in describing New River as being a central part of the community’s fabric. “The activities that go on there well exceed the books on the racks,” Robertson said. “I think it would be a very sad thing, if we were to close that library.” Nancy Fredericks, administrator for Pasco County libraries, said closing the two libraries would cause more than 18 layoffs and yield about $776,875 in savings. It quickly became clear that commissioners had no interest in closing the libraries. Even Schrader said he raised the issue because he wanted to be sure the county explored all of its options. Commissioner Jack Mariano adamantly opposed any library closings. “I just would love to see this conversation stop right now,” he said, urging commissioners to send a clear message that all county libraries will remain open. “I think the libraries are very important for the county. Children have to take online courses. If they don’t have a computer at home, where are they going to go?” Mariano said.Closing libraries would be a step in the wrong direction, he added. “I just think we’re really hurting quality of life. There are better ways to go,” Mariano said. Commissioners Pat Mulieri, Kathryn Starkey and Henry Wilson made it clear they were against the idea. “We all have to decide what kind of community we want to live in,” Starkey said. “Having a quality place takes some investment. This is, to me, a real turning point in Pasco County.” Despite that sentiment, Schrader countered that the commissioners are still going to need to find places to save money, or residents will get bigger tax bills in the mail later. “In less than a month, on Sept. 10, we have the first public hearing,” he said. “Staff needs some direction from this board where you’re going to cut and where you’re going to raise taxes.” Commissioners have been hearing plenty from people who don’t want a tax hike. But Mulieri asked how well those louder voices are being represented. “How many people did you hear from?” she said. “Twenty-five? Thirty? Fifty? There’s 478,000 people in Pasco County. Most people like the idea that we have a fee for services. But they also want their library.” Starkey and Mariano noted that quality of life has an impact on the county’s economic prospects. “I’ve heard from a lot of people who don’t want any raise in the taxes. I’ve heard from a lot more that say they want a quality place to live,” Starkey said. “We can’t attract businesses here, when they drive by shuttered parks, shuttered libraries, roads full of potholes, snipe signs and garbage everywhere because we aren’t taking care of our backyard,” she said.LIBRARY, from page 1 The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report An endangered Grevy’s zebra was born on Busch Gardens Tampa’s 65-acre Serengeti Plain on Aug. 5. Within an hour after its birth, the baby was able to stand on its own and nurse from its mother, Brooke.This is the fifth foal for 13-year-old Brooke, and is the first offspring with another zebra, Two Step. The gestation period for Grevy’s zebras is 13 months, and the mothers typically give birth to only one foal at a time.In addition to the new foal, seven female and one male Grevy’s zebras live on Busch Gardens’ Serengeti Plain. Busch Gardens’ guests can view the baby, parents and the rest of the zebra herd from the Edge of Africa, the Skyride or Serengeti Express train ride. The population of Grevy’s zebra has declined by more than 50 percent in the last 18 years, and they are the only species of zebra that is listed as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Red list, a widely recognized comprehensive, objective global approach for evaluating the conservation status of plant and animal species.Summer baby boom goes on at Busch Gardens with new zebraVIRTUAL, from page 1 “I did talk with one of the owners, and there’s been a kind of shakeup in management there,” said Brooks, who played 18 holes on the course after it reopened on Friday. That followed up on a promise he made while the golf course’s future was uncertain that he would return to Plantation Palms, but he might not necessarily pay for membership well in advance. “I think everybody would like to enjoy the golf course, and you need an ownership team that makes viable business decisions and have the right cash flow to keep the place open,” Brooks said. Ray, however, denies there’s been any management shakeup, and that all three owners are still active with the golf course. “There are no ownership changes,” Ray said. “A lot of rumors went around about what was going on, but no one knew the full story except us.” Ray said he’s working to make up for the downtime, and understands how frustrated many of the members were. “It’s understandable,” he said. “They put up money to make sure they could play on a golf course, and you can’t play on a golf course that’s not open. “To them, it was almost a disaster. But we were basically closed for seven days. That’s usually what we’re closed for when we overseed the greens.” Golfers are slowly coming back to Plantation Palms as word of mouth spreads the golf club has reopened. Many should find out by the end of the week when the Oasis grill there serves prime rib and tilapia as part of its regular Friday night dinner, Ray said. “I’m one of the members here, and I live in the community,” Brooks said. “I want all the businesses in the area to be successful, because it’s good for our community. And I certainly want our golf course to be successful, because we need it here for our community.” GOLF, from page 1 The perfectly manicured greens of Plantation Palms Golf Club await arrivals of its first golfers after reopening last week from a brief hiatus. Despite rumors to the contrary, all three owners are still in charge of the golf course, according to its management team. Busch Gardens welcomed a new Grevy’s zebra born on Aug. 5.

Voted Florida’s No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports Freedom developing team bond to continue successBy Jeff Odom Capturing four district crowns in as many years and coming off the best season in program history, the Steinbrenner High School volleyball team has been nothing short of dominant since the school was opened in 2009. The Warriors made their first trip to the Class 7A region finals last year before falling to eventual state champion Venice in three straight sets. And while another district championship would be special, the players want more this time around, said secondyear coach Laura Stegenga. Like winning a state title. “I have the athletes; we’ve just got to put the work in,” said Stegenga, who took over the team for Jennifer Graham in May 2012. “The biggest thing I want my players to focus on is not just going for championships, but practice and what happens there. That’s how you achieve those kind of goals, and I think it’s a goal that we can achieve if we work hard.” That road to states may be a little tougher for Steinbrenner this season because of the addition of one extra game against each district opponent and Sickles entering Class 7A-District 8. The Gryphons are coming off three straight championship campaigns of their own in which they most recently defeated Strawberry Crest to win Class 6A-District 11 last year. Adding Sickles into the mix of league opponents will make competition more interesting, Stegenga said, but she insists it’s nothing the team can’t handle. “I know (my seniors) are really driven, and I know that they’re extremely good leaders,” she said. “It’s really neat to have them a part of it and also setting the tone for the younger ones.” Any competition that challenges the team will only make them better, Stegenga said, even if it results in a loss. “It’s OK in my eyes,” she said. “By adding Sickles, I think it’s a positive thing for us, because it’s just more competition.” Another potential concern the Warriors face this season is replacing the leadership of the team’s three graduated seniors. They include libero Natalia Campos and starting outside hitter Madison Seuzeneau. Seuzeneau, who now plays at Spring Hill College in Alabama, was second on the team in kills last season with 255, second in aces with 40, and third in blocks with 14, based on stats entered by coaches to Campos, now at Valdosta State University in Georgia, had a team-high 377 digs to go along with 39 aces and 15 assists. Filling the void left behind by their departure are senior outside hitter Rachel Matheson (257 kills, 169 digs, 30 aces and 11 blocks), setter Casey McLean (199 assists, 158 digs and 66 aces) and opposite hitter Maddy Powell (seven kills). The opportunity to step into a leadership position is something the trio relishes, Stegenga said.“They’ve definitely made their comments about their seniority over things,” she said, with a laugh. “They’re anxious, excited, and every emotion that they’re feeling is probably very positive for our program. They don’t want anything to change, even though we lose players every year. They don’t want what has been happening the past few years to change, so I feel like they’re willing and ready, and they have the desire to go in and take those roles, all three of them.”Steinbrenner hosts Armwood to open the regular season on Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Steinbrenner aims higher than fifth straight district title By Jeff Odom The Freedom High volleyball team has a new motto this season that is aimed at keeping its run of success going and developing younger players. That fresh adage, according to interim coach Michelle Davis, is “One Team, One Dream.” But to the team, it’s much more than just a slogan on the back of a Tshirt. “We’re going to incorporate co-practices this season to really work with our girls (to) have a one-team atmosphere between our junior varsity and varsity players,” said Davis, who is filling in at head coach this season for Kerry Short, who is out on maternity leave. “What (assistant coach Jeff) Saxton and I have noticed with some of the junior varsity from last year was that some of them were not ready to move to the varsity level, because they did not have the talent and the skills to get there. But the best way to build a solid program is to make sure we have a strong junior varsity team, so we’re focused on that to have a feeder program, which is going to be very important moving forward.” The Patriots are coming off of three straight winning seasons, which included a runner-up finish in Class 7A-District 9 last year. However, if Freedom continues its run of success, the squad will have to do it without 2013 graduate Jasmyn Perry (422 kills) and senior outside hitter Ashley Wilson (212 kills, 190 digs), who are no longer with the team. While the team will feel the impact left by their voids both on and off the court, Davis said, it’s best for her players to treat it like a work environment where people come and go. “You’ve got to move forward and that’s the sign of a true champion,” she said. “These girls have really picked that up. At the beginning of the season, they acknowledged there was a hole and we weren’t sure with (junior varsity) girls stepping up or incoming freshmen, what we were going to have. And we’ve been very fortunate that everyone’s been healthy and everyone has stayed focused and strong and they are one collective unit that wants success for the program.” One of the ways her team has worked to fill that hole is through honing their skills and staying in shape through outdoor beach volleyball. “Running in the sand, playing in the sand and playing in the heat has made their conditioning level already really high coming into this year,” Davis said. “And there’s no hiding a girl like you can indoors if you have a girl who’s taller and can be put onto the back row and you can sub a girl out, there’s none of that happening in beach. So, it’s made the girls have to work a little bit harder to become more well-rounded.” One of the teams that Freedom is trying to learn from is none other than cross-town rival Steinbrenner, which has won four district championships in as many years. Davis was originally hired as the Warriors’ junior varsity coach, but opted to come to Freedom when a spot opened because it was closer to her New Tampa home. After seeing how strong Steinbrenner’s junior varsity program was, the idea of meshing practices became a nobrainer and, so far, it has led to many of her players stepping up as leaders. That includes setter Kelly Schaller (154 digs, 80 assists) and defensive specialist Gabbi Jacobs, who had 105 digs and 27 aces last season, according to statistics as entered by coaches to Jacobs said the early guidance of Davis has helped the program tremendously in just the first few days of organized practice, and added that she feels like the team has a good chance to make even bigger strides this season to possibly steal the district championship. “We’ve all worked really well together, and we all have really strong players,” Jacobs said. “Even though we’re just now at the beginning, we’re all looking really good together.” Davis said she’s expecting a lot out of Jacobs, a senior, and believes her speed is going to be great for her back row. However there is one other player that has caught her eye, and that’s Jacobs’ sister, Carlee, a sophomore outside hitter. “With those girls running the back row, I have a lot of confidence in our defense, and I don’t see our back row letting anything get by,” Davis said. Still, even with a surplus of young talent and blossoming leaders, Davis said she knows it’s going to be a difficult schedule at times. But that won’t stop her from making any bold predictions. “This program has the opportunity to be fantastic, because these girls are working so hard,” Davis said. “I honestly don’t think they’re going to be stopped this year. I know that we have Sickles and Steinbrenner and they may see us as an underdog, but I have the utmost confidence in this team. I think we will win the district championship.” Freedom opens the regular season at home against Hillsborough on Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. Freedom senior setter Kelly Schaller had 154 digs and 80 assists for the Patriots last season.

SPORTS B y Jeff Odo m m He may have never stepped foot on a college gridiron, but former Gaither High School defensive end Ernest Suttles is set to join his third college team since graduating in May. After he was dismissed from the University of Nebraska following an off-campus incident, Suttles thought he had found a new home in Coral Gables at Miami last week. But, the Hurricanes denied his transfer request, which left the 2012 All-Laker/All-Lutz News Defensive Player of the Year without a team again. But not for long. Memphis has accepted Suttles’ transfer request, and he officially joined the Tigers, which compete in the American Athletic Conference. “He was involved in an unfortunate situation,” Memphis coach Justin Fuente told the Memphis Commercial Appeal newspaper on Aug. 14. “But we got letters of recommendation from an associate athletic director at Nebraska, from his high school principal, his high school football coach, a high school teacher, and we talked to two assistant coaches at Nebraska. They all had nothing but unbelievable things to say about him. They said he was a really good kid who made a mistake and was in a bad situation.” Suttles joined Memphis for practice on Aug. 11, but will still have to sit out one year due to NCAA transfer rules, according to the Commercial Appeal. He will have four years of eligibility starting in 2014. Memphis started last season 1-8, but rebounded with three straight wins to finish with an overall record of 4-8. Ernest Suttles, a former defensive end standout at Gaither High School, has finally settled on Memphis as his college home after being dismissed from the University of Nebraska earlier this year.

SPORTS Olsen, who was one of Pasco County’s leader in kills with 305 and added 252 digs, said it’s a huge advantage to return so many familiar faces, because it means the team’s chemistry will still be on the mark. “I’ve gotten to know these girls over the past three, four years and even playing with them (during practice), I’ve noticed that we mesh as a team, we play well and no one gets mad at each other,” Olsen said. “Everything is always moving forward. We never take any steps back.” Deang, who is referred to by her nickname, “The Beast,” led all Bulls with 337 digs and has anchored her squad’s back row as a quick defender. A family atmosphere surrounds the team both on and off the court, she said. “We’ve all really grown together,” Deang said. “We really want to see us succeed as a team, and it’s a very big advantage because most teams don’t have as much family-wise as we do or have a very close knit group.” If Wiregrass Ranch is able to win its first Class 7A-District 8 championship this season, the route to it won’t be easy.Aside from Freedom, the Bulls will also have to defeat newcomer Sickles — winner of three straight district titles — and Steinbrenner, which has won its district each year since the school opened in 2009 and is a perfect 22-0 all-time in district matches, dropping just one set in four years.Wright, who had a team-high 79 assists last season, said it will take a lot more work to get past those teams, but it’s nothing they can’t handle. “It’s going to take a lot of hard work from us,” Wright said. “Once we step onto the court, we know it’s time to be serious. Yeah, we can have fun, but we also know when we go, we are all out, and we never give up and we always push each other to the max.” Added Kantor: “They want that district title, they want that (Sunshine Athletic Conference) title and they can almost taste it. They’re not being cocky about it and they’re not overconfident, but it’s a goal they want and it’s a goal that they really want to reach their senior year.” Wiregrass Ranch opens its season on the road against Fivay on Aug. 27 at 7:30 p.m. By Jeff Odom news@cnewspu b m As Mindy Kantor walked into the Wiregrass Ranch gymnasium recently, the Bulls’ volleyball coach took a moment to glance at the row of championship banners hanging from the rafters. Football, baseball, soccer, cross-country and track are just a few that are christened with seasons of titles, glory and remembrance of their respective accomplishments. Then, there’s volleyball — blank. “They believe in themselves. They’re determined,” said Kantor, the only coach since the school opened in 2007. “We’ve built this team on respect for everything — the uniform, the school, the coach and yourself, big time. And if you have the confidence to believe all of that, it’s in your court, and it’s what they put out on that court that’s going to go up on that banner.” It’s that kind of confidence that has the Bulls believing that this can be the year they get over the hump and into the postseason, which they fell one win short of last season after losing to Freedom in the district semifinals. One of the major factors that could lift them to the title this time around is leadership from the program’s nine returning seniors, many of whom have grown through the program since they were freshmen and sophomores. “We’ve gone so far and then the ups and downs and the disappointments, but they’ve taken those disappointments and they feed off of it,” Kantor said. “They’ve wanted (to win the title) from all the way back in June, when we started open courts and conditioning. They gave it through the summer, they gave it through camp … you name it, they gave it, and it’s now transpiring into practices. It’s nonstop.” One of the benefits of bringing back that many seniors, according to Kantor, is the return of what she refers to as the “Big Three” — outside hitter Grace Olsen, setter Teddi Wright and libero Izah Deang.Seniors hope to take Wiregrass volleyball to next step Wiregrass Ranch rosterName Pos.
