Details on page 18 A GOLFERS diet consists of lots of GREENS By B.C. Manion bc m an i m People living, working or traveling through Pasco County will pay 5 cents more per gallon of gasoline beginning Jan. 1, if a proposed tax hike is approved by the Pasco County Commission. The increase will help the county do a better job of filling potholes, tending landscapes, grading dirt roads and maintaining the county’s roads, officials said. Commissioners are expected to vote on the issue on Sept. 10. But two commissioners already have spoke in favor of a higher gas tax.Ted Schrader and Pat Mulieri supported a potential gas tax increase during a commission workshop last week. Schrader said county staff members made a solid case for it. “This is not a ‘wants’ plan, it’s a ‘needs’ plan,” Schrader said.Gas tax could add nickel at pump Hospital’s first year better than expectedBy B.C. Manion bc m an i m When Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel was preparing to open its doors last October, it expected to have 400 employees. Less than a year later, it has 600. “For the 600 jobs that we have, we had over 25,000 applicants,” hospital chief executive Brian Adams said last week. “Not all of those applicants, of course, were qualified for roles in health care. But even in nursing, for every one job, we had more than 10 applicants.” Adams was sharing the news with the economic development committee of the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce. Having so many applicants means the hospital can really be selective, and focus purely on talent. The Wesley Chapel hospital, for example, has an average of 10 years experience.And the hospital has outpaced projections in other areas as well.

But she never expected the tables to be turned, courtesy of Habitat for Humanity. Porter, a compassion ministry director for Victorious Life Church in Wesley Chapel, is the area’s newest Habitat homeowner, receiving the keys earlier this month for the home at 15054 Gainesville Road. “I had no idea that Habitat even did this for people like me,” Porter said. “I thought they only helped single moms, or people who were destitute and homeless.” In fact, Porter was trying to help a family get a Habitat home, and realized through the process that she actually qualified. “So I said, ‘what the heck, let’s try this thing,’” she said. “My best friends kept telling me that all they could do is say no. And they didn’t.” Porter, 29, grew up in New Mexico, but realized at a young age she wanted to be a pastor. But it was while she was in seminary, she discovered an even more direct calling. “I wanted to be more hands-on and see people’s lives improve,” she said. “VLC gave me the opportunity to do that.” Porter started as an intern at the church in 2003, and since 2005 has served as the compassion ministry director. She runs the church-owned Lily of the Valley food pantry outreach center in Wesley Chapel, where she not only helps feed those who are hungry, but provides other help when they need it. That includes even her home, where she has served as a foster mother for teenagers who need a home. “With my budget, I was not able to find a place that was able to foster a young child,” See HABITAT, page14 Volunteers through Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week program put up a wall for Tiffany Porter’s house during its construction in north Land O’ Lakes. Porter, who dedicates her time to helping others through her church, moved in earlier this month. (Photos courtesy of Stephanie Black)


26,000 emergency room visits and 380 baby deliveries are roughly double original expectations, Adams said. Other first-year figures include 3,800 admissions and 1,800 surgeries.Business owners may wonder if people will travel into Wesley Chapel to get health care, and the answer to that is that they do, Adams said. “The economic development piece of having a business that not only employs 600 people in the community, but also attracts people into Wesley Chapel, is a real benefit,” he said. “Many of the individuals who now come to Wesley Chapel for care were traveling out of the county for care, so they were going down into Hillsborough County, which means they see physicians in Hillsborough County, which means they stop for lunch on their way to see those physicians in Hillsborough.” Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel sits on 52 acres on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard, west of SR 56. It has 83 beds, with the capability expanding to 299. The hospital itself is three stories now, but can rise to six when the hospital needs more room to handle increasing health care needs, Adams said. And it might be sooner rather than later. Figures by the hospital show population growth in the area between 2.9 percent and 4 percent by 2017. There are other factors to consider as well beyond just population growth, and that’s something the Wesley Chapel hospital stays cognizant of, Adams said. One is how much health care people are using. “In this community, it’s going down, mainly because of the shift of cost from employer-based health plans to individual-based health plans,” Adams said. The age of the population also figures in. In a community like Wesley Chapel, where the population is growing younger, the amount of healthcare used is lower than in a community like Zephyrhills, where the population is older. The hospital is working to be a good neighbor, and may even reach out to PascoHernando Community College after it opens its Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in January. The college is taking shape on a site near the intersection of SR 56 and Mansfield Boulevard, not far from the hospital. “Having PHCC in the community will only benefit all of us,” Adams said. “I’ve had a number of conversations with the leadership at PHCC, and we believe part of our role is to create opportunities for students to learn and grow in a real-life setting.” That’s common in the medical field, especially in the nursing field, he said. Having PHCC offer a transition to bachelor’s-level nursing can only help surrounding hospitals like Wesley Chapel’s. Finally, with the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act on the horizon, Adams was optimistic that many pieces of the federal plan will benefit the community. “People having access to the health care, at the primary care level, is probably the best way to best reduce our overall healthcare spend,” he said. “The most expensive time to care for a patient is when they have reached a point in their health where the intervention takes heavy resources.” It also means taking steps now to prevent more serious health problems in the future. “If you can help someone who didn’t have insurance to go to a physician and get their diabetes under control before that diabetes wreaked havoc on their heart, it’s a totally different approach,” Adams said. But there will also be changes in the way employers handle insurance, by some employers no longer covering spouses that can get insurance elsewhere, and the proliferation of high-deductible health plans as companies try to offer affordable insurance to low-wage employees. Ultimately, Adams thinks that consumers will drive the need for quality care, especially if they are paying the first $10,000 of their health care costs out-of-pocket due to high deductibles in their insurance plans. Segovia said. The employee may need training to handle their new responsibilities. Or maybe the company has a new bottling line, and its staff needs to learn how to work it. Training dollars may be available to help meet that need, she said. Under the Employed Worker Training grant program, companies can seek reimbursement of 50 percent to help employees upgrade their skills. But they must meet specific requirements. These grants seek to help companies perform well, with the increased skills of their workforce leading to greater success, which is good for the overall economy, Segovia said. To receive reimbursement, the training must meet industryrecognized standards, Segovia said. But the process is simple, especially if companies consider all of their training needs for a year and then put together a single application. There are some restrictions, however. For instance, a company can be eligible for a grant two years in a row, but it cannot receive reimbursement for training involving the same employee year after year, Segovia said. People are sometimes intimidated by the paperwork, but they shouldn’t be. “The paperwork we’re talking about initially for your employer to fill out is six pages,” said Nathan Stevens, who also is a business services consultant for the workforce board. “It’s free money. You would think people would be standing in line. Why wouldn’t you come and try to get it?” Companies can apply for any amount they’d like, and the application will be considered. “If there’s money available, and there’s justification for this amount, they may be able to get it,” Stevens said. On another front, there’s also funding available through an onthe-job grant program. The company can receive up to 50 percent of a new employee’s wages for up to 12 weeks through the program. The arrangement must be preapproved, the employer must document the training plan and the employee must be a new hire and cannot be a relative, Segovia said. Some companies use on-the-job training because they want to mold their employees to complete the work the way they want it to be done, Segovia said. For more information about the programs, go to Click on the “Job Seekers” tab to find out more about on-the-job training, and click on the employers tab to find out more about the Employed Worker Training program. By B.C. Manion Businesses have to overcome many obstacles to find success, but the Pasco-Hernando Workforce Board wants to remind them they are not alone. The board, which administers local workforce development and welfare reform programs, is connecting businesses in Pasco and Hernando counties with grants that can be used to help employees learn new skills or can provide on-the-job training for new hires. The grants are awarded on a firstcome, first-served basis until the money runs out. “We put the word out to everybody,” said Ana Segovia, a business services consultant for the workforce board. “It’s set up to help the local employers for what their needs are.” For example, someone has worked at a company for five years gets promoted and now has to work with different software, Ana Segovia Nathan Stevens Can’t afford training?

MANION Community Editor JEFF ODOM Staff Writer MARY RATHMAN Editorial Assistant ACCOUNTINGMATTHEW MISTRETTA Art Director STEFANIE BURLINGAME Graphic Designer MARY EBERHARD KATHY WELTON ADMINISTRATIVE Local invention vying for spot on Walmart store shelvesBy Michael Hinman Time is running out for two local medical professionals to get their invention on the shelves of Walmart stores across the country. And they need your help. BariBowl is an innovative portion control food container developed by Land O’ Lakesbased physician assistant Dezi Zevin and bariatric surgeon Dr. Tiffany Jessee. It’s designed to help anyone managing their nutritional intake for a healthy life, and it’s quickly advancing through Walmart’s “Get it on the Shelf” contest. BariBowl uses two 4-ounce dishes that can be subdivided right down to 1-ounce portions. It seems simple enough, and Zevin said she was surprised no one else had thought of it before. “Dr. Jessee does weight-loss surgery, and I was her PA, and we talked about whether there was anything out there that would help patients keep track of their eating after surgery,” Zevin said. “I went home and researched it, and I found nothing. So she said we should come up with something.” That was 2010, and later that year, both had created a company — BariWare LLC — and had a working prototype going. By 2011, they were manufacturing the BariBowl from a facility in Clearwater. The bowls come in pink, blue and green, and are both microwave and dishwasher safe. So far, marketing and sales efforts for the BariBowl — which retails at about $20 — have been focused on doctor’s offices, especially those specializing in bariatric surgery. However, the product has a wide range of uses that go beyond that, whether it’s someone managing diabetes, trying to lose weight, and even body builders and athletes. “I use this for my kids instead of going through the drive-thru at McDonald’s,” Zevin said. “I prepare their meals in the morning, and can use it throughout the day.” Zevin says she can pack lunch for her kids, and then have a second one ready at the end of the day when she picks them up and takes them to soccer. Since the product launched, sales have doubled year-over-year. Yet, getting into Walmart could push those numbers right through the roof. For that to happen, it’s going to take votes, however. Walmart’s “Get on the Shelf” contest features a number of products evaluated by the store’s management staff, and then put up for a public vote to see what consumers might be interested in. The BariBowl was part of the contest last year, but did not advance. And with voting running through Sept. 2, Zevin and Jessee are hoping for a much different result this time. And even if they do succeed and turn the BariBowl into a booming business, neither plans to give up their day job. “It would be like a dream come true, and it would be a game changer for both our lives,” said Jessee, who was Florida’s first female bariatric surgeon. “We don’t have the financial ability to do much advertising, so to walk into a store and see your product on a shelf for a national chain, that is just unbelievable.” Extra profits would be reinvested back into the company, Zevin said, to help them expand the BariBowl line to other complementary products. That could include a larger bowl for those who have to eat more but still want to portion food. To vote for the BariBowl in the Walmart “Get on the Shelf” competition, visit Dezi Zevin, a physician assistant based in Land O’ Lakes, shows off the BariBowl, a product she co-created with bariatric surgeon Dr. Tiffany Jessee.

M an i on bc m an i m When Michael Sawyer recently set up shop in Lutz, he brought together three businesses offering a broad array of computer services. The storefront at 18125 N. US 41, Suite 101, is the new home for Aware Media, TechGuyToGo and Tampa Technology Training. Aware Media Marketing focuses on design work, ranging from business cards to website design. Sawyer had that business before he opened his new storefront. He added TechGuyToGo to bring consumers into the shop for computer repairs, as well as repairs to the screens on their hand-held devices and computers. Sawyer also offers business services and technical training. He launched Tampa Technology Training to provide courses for those wanting to improve their computer skills. Sawyer wants to share his knowledge with students, whether they are seeking a job, want to handle new responsibilities, or are interested in engaging in creative pursuits. A part-time teacher at Hillsborough Community College, Sawyer said he’s excited about launching his training center because he wants to create an educational environment he believes will help students thrive.“This is a small class. I have eight seats,” said Sawyer, who also previously taught at Aparicio-Levy Technical Center in Hillsborough County. “I might go to 10 eventually, but at the end of the day, it’s going to be a small-class environment. I just think the dynamics of the whole class changes, when you have that small classroom size.”Personal interaction is helpful in computer courses because students arriving at class often come with wide-ranging levels of experience, he said. “You have people who think they know, and they don’t. And, you have people who have no clue,” Sawyer said. When people lack experience, they tend to be tentative, Sawyer said. “You have to break down some of that intimidation. You have to make sure there are some steps for people to follow,” he said. Small classes encourage greater collaboration in the learning process, Sawyer said. “I think it makes people feel more comfortable because they’re not afraid about asking a question because they’re not holding up 29 people,” Sawyer said. He plans to offer a wide array of courses, including those for people who want to get a better job, but may not be so strong with their computer skills. Sawyer will also offer classes for those looking to get into Web design.He also plans to provide corporate training classes, as well as classes focused on desktop publishing. Training will be geared toward preparing students to obtain certification.Because it is his own business, Sawyer said he is able to offer classes when he wants, usually around his HCC teaching schedule. However, he is planning to survey students to find out when they would like classes to be offered. Sawyer moved to Lutz about a year and a half ago because he was attracted by the community’s natural beauty and quiet nature, he said. He chose to locate his storefront on US 41 because the busy highway that bisects the community brings thousands of cars past his business each day. The location is also about midway between computer repair shops to the north and south, Sawyer said.A trio of computer businesses under one roof Land O’ Lakes Branch LibraryClosed Labor Day, Sept. 2 Anime Club, 6 p.m. Sept. 3 Baby Storytime, 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. every Thursday Toddler Storytime, 10:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. every Friday Preschool Storytime, 11:30 a.m. every Friday Popcorn and a Movie, 2 p.m. Sept. 7 Teen Advisory Board, 6 p.m. Sept. 10 and Sept. 24 Computer Skills, 10 a.m. Sept. 11 Social Seniors, 10 a.m. Sept. 12 Florida Blood Services Blood Drive, noon on Sept. 12 Friends of the Land O’Lakes Library, 2 p.m. Sept. 12 Teen Event – 6 p.m. Sept. 17 Family Night Out – Camping Adventure, 6:30 p.m. Sept. 17 Land O’ Lakes Book Club, 1:30 p.m. Sept. 18 Friday Afternoon Movie, 1:15 p.m. Sept. 20 Kids Crafts – Pirate/Princess Party, 2 p.m. Sept. 21 Tablet Time, 10:15 a.m. Sept. 25 Senior Games, 10 a.m. Sept. 26 Flash Fiction Writing, 10 a.m. Sept. 28 The library is closed Sundays and Mondays, and is located at 2818 Collier Parkway, and can be reached at (813) 929-1214.

PAGE 11 / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS August 28, 2013 11 By Michael Hinman More students are walking through the front doors of area schools as communities in Pasco County continue to grow. The 39 schools in east and central Pasco County added 1,000 students since this time last year, according to population numbers released by Pasco County Schools. On average, the student population growth in east and central Pasco would be equivalent to adding a classroom per school. The additional students bring the total public school population to 30,800 — a 3.4 percent increase.“We’re not exactly sure where they are coming from as we haven’t had a chance to analyze it just yet,” said Christopher Williams, director for planning services at Pasco County Schools. “There are certainly some new houses being built, but I’m not sure how much of that has impacted the schools.”The biggest student population jumps came in Wesley Chapel, where Watergrass and Wesley Chapel elementary schools added 382 students, many of them coming from Quail Hollow Elementary School, which is closed this year for renovations. Both schools already taught more than a combined total of 1,000 students, but this year are operating with 1,438 — a 36 percent jump. Also on the rise is Wesley Chapel High School, adding 206 students from this time last year, and increasing its student body by nearly 16 percent. Wiregrass Ranch High School was not far behind, adding 159 students to cross the 2,000 mark with an 8 percent jump. “The Wesley Chapel and (SR) 54 corridor is where we’re seeing the most growth,” Williams said, adding there are still serious overcrowding issues at schools like Seven Oaks Elementary, Long Middle and Wiregrass Ranch. And it will be that way, at least for the near future. “We don’t have much of a budget for new schools, other than having enough money to build a new elementary school, in the next five years,” he said. “In the meantime, we’re doing what we can to help these schools.” Samantha Touriello, an incoming fifth-grader at Connerton Elementary School, gets some reassurance from principal Aimee Boltze while her mother Jessica Cottrell looks on during the first day of school last week.

813-909-2800 / COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS August 28, 2013 12 By B.C. Manion Chili aficionados and classic car buffs can compete for bragging rights on Nov. 2 at the Lutz Centennial Cars & Chili event. The event is one in a series of celebrations this year to mark the 100th anniversary of Lutz, which has a rich history of bringing people together for community gatherings.“The main thing I’m hoping for is a good day,” said Bob Moore, chairman of the centennial committee. “What I’m trying to do is involve people from Lutz. I know there are a lot of people in Lutz that have classic cars.” Car buffs and motorcycle enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in the show, which will feature classic cars, exotic cars and motorcycles. “Come show off your Harleys,” Moore said. The chili cook-off will have two categories: Families and individuals will compete in one, and clubs and organizations will square off in the other. Steve Otto, a widely known columnist for The Tampa Tribune, has vast experience in judging chili contests and will lead the team judging this cook-off. Suzin Carr, the honorary Guv’na of Lutz, will also get to choose her favorite chili. Centennial Committee member Janet Hardy said the committee wants to put the word out early, to encourage people to take part. The deadline for registration to compete in the cook-off is 5 p.m. on Oct. 25, and there is a $25 team entry fee. She hopes chili cooks will pull out their deep pots, long-handled ladles and special recipes to test their skills against other chili lovers. She also hopes that they’ll show off their team spirit, because organizers are trying to promote good old-fashioned fun. The idea, she said, “is just to celebrate the fact that Lutz is a great place.”Chili cook-off teams can consist of one chef and two assistants. The chili must be cooked on-site. Since there’s no electricity, teams must provide their own LP-gas cooking appliance. They must also supply their own ingredients and cooking utensils.Patrons will be able to purchase official centennial chili cups for $5 each, which they can carry around from team to team to sample different kinds of chili. The tastings will begin at noon and will end when the chili runs out, or at 2 p.m. The celebration will be on the grounds between the old train depot and the Lutz Community Center, between US 41 and the Lutz Branch Library.

Porter said. Just before moving into her new home, she was living in a mother-in-law suite that was not in the best living conditions. But now she can apply to take in younger children, thanks to having a safe home in a safe neighborhood. And while Habitat’s mission is to provide homeownership for those who may not have had it otherwise, it’s certainly not a handout, said Stephanie Black, director of development and public relations for Habitat for Humanity of East and Central Pasco County. “I think the biggest misconception is that Habitat gives away homes, but they don’t,” Black said. “We provide a zero-interest, noprofit mortgage, but it’s still a mortgage.” Candidates for home ownership have to meet certain income levels ranging from between $11,950 to $31,850 annually for one person, to between $21,150 and $56,400 for a family of seven. Families have to demonstrate a need for affordable housing and currently live in a substandard home. However, they also have to prove they can make mortgage payments, and have a steady job with no recent bankruptcies or court judgments.“Most of our home payments are less than what people are paying for rent,” Black said. “That includes their taxes and their insurance.”And while Habitat is always looking for volunteers, their biggest need recently has been qualified candidates. Porter’s home was the 117th Habitat home built in East and Central Pasco County. It was constructed over a sevenmonth period, and was a women-built project. The entire construction crew was female, part of an international campaign to encourage more women to join construction teams typically dominated by men. All of that is just a bonus for Porter, who is enjoying her new home with plans to stay in it for quite a while. “I didn’t grow up here, but I just love this area,” she said. “I never know what might happen next, but right now, I don’t plan on living anywhere else.” For more information on how to apply for a Habitat home, call (352) 567-1444, or visit T h e m o r e y o u r e a d t h e m o r e y o u  l l k n o w K e e p u p t o d a t e w i t h y o u r l o c a l n e w s p a p e r The LAKER/ Lutz NEWSPh: 813.909.2800 € Fax: 813.909.2802 P.O.

Additional funds are needed because Pasco is a different place than it used to be. “It’s not your grandfather’s Pasco.”The county’s current gas tax is 7 cents a gallon and the proposed tax would take it to 12 cents a gallon, which is the maximum level.Commissioner Henry Wilson asked if the county could set the tax so that it would automatically expire in 10 years. Such a tax might be more acceptable to some people if they knew it was only temporary, he said. County Administrator Michele Baker said that was possible. But if commissioners do move forward with an increase, the county’s proposed budget — already under consideration by the commissioners — would need changes. Either way, the county must find a way to address its needs, Baker said.“Our infrastructure is aging and falling apart,” Baker said. “This is a national problem.”As the federal and state governments grapple with finding ways to repair their roads and bridges, it is unlikely that the county will receive additional funding to address local needs, Baker said. “If we want to improve the infrastructure in Pasco County, it’s on us,” she said.Baker also noted there’s a direct link between the quality of the community’s infrastructure and its property values. It affects not only current property owners, but also affects the county’s ability to attract new businesses.Schrader agreed. “People, when they come here to look — that’s what they’re looking for, is the appearance.” “Curb appeal, literally,” added Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. The county has been waging a losing battle in its quest to maintain its roads and landscaping because of deep budget and staffing cuts, Baker said. The road and bridge department has lost a third of its budget since 2008, going from $8.9 million to $6.3 million. Its staff has been reduced from 90 employees down to 40, and at the same time, the county has added 240 lane-miles of new road. “You have 50 less people to grade roads, mow right-of-way, do landscaping, fill potholes, put up signs, trim trees,” Schrader said. Public Works director Mike Garrett told commissioners that the county’s response times for maintenance needs have lengthened because of staff and budget cuts. That Situation, he said, will only grow worse without additional funds. If the proposed increase is adopted, the 5-cent increase would generate $6 million the first year and $8.1 million per year thereafter. The first year is less because the tax would only be in effect for nine months of the fiscal year.GAS TAX, from page 1 Tiffany Porter hammers in a nail on what will eventually become her new home through Habitat for Humanity.

They make friends, celebrate good plays and congratulate each other while parents watch the games and support their children. After the game, everyone leaves with a smile and a desire to take the field again the following Saturday. The only thing missing is the hard-core competition: There isn’t any. The score is an afterthought at best. Just getting a chance to play is what matters, because the athletes might be in a wheelchair, have autism, or have some other physical, psychological or neurological challenge that makes playing more difficult. But none of those challenges prevent them from playing in the Buddy Baseball League, which partners each athlete with a “buddy” who guides them through the game, offers encouragement and allows them to take part in an experience that would otherwise be unavailable to them. Now in its fifth year, Buddy Baseball plays its games on Saturdays, beginning in late September, at the Temple Terrace Recreation Complex, 6610 E. Whiteway Drive. But its players — boys and girls with special needs ages 10-22 — come from all over the Tampa Bay Region (some even as far away as Sarasota or Plant City), and the league provides helmets, bats and balls, as well as hat and T-shirt uniforms to all participants. Each player is also assigned at least one buddy and will get a feel for their role during a designated practice before each scheduled game. According to Russ Oberbroeckling, Buddy Baseball commissioner, the format allows disabled children to go from permanent spectators to instant athletes. “They really can’t play baseball on a regular team because their disability holds them back,” Oberbroeckling said. “Now they can play on a team and be successful at it because they have a buddy there to help.” The activity also allows them to make friends and enjoy the camaraderie of organized sports. Oberbroeckling also explained that the buddies, who are normally in the same age range as the participants, enjoy helping the players and being part of a special organization. But Buddy Baseball impacts people off the field as well: Parents get to cheer on their children and be part of a sports community that otherwise might not be available to them. “It’s very social for the parents,” Oberbroeckling said. “For an hour and a half, they can go out to a baseball game, sit in the stands, enjoy the game and they’re meeting other people with similar situations.” Amy Dean, a Lutz resident whose daughter plays Buddy Baseball, agrees that parents also benefit from the organization.“We’ve gotten to where we know each other now, because the same parents tend to be there,” Dean said. They give each other tips and advice, and enjoy the games together.But the biggest recipient is her daughter, April. The 20-year-old, who has hypotonic cerebral palsy, is starting her fifth season with Buddy Baseball (the league plays two seasons a year), and she’s gone from knowing nothing about the sport to practicing with her family between games. “She’s looked forward to it from day one. Just absolutely loves it,” Dean said. The social component is also important, as Dean wants her daughter to be comfortable interacting and making friends in an atmosphere that includes people without disabilities, such as the buddies. And April has had no problem making friends and enjoying herself at the games. “I’ve been having fun at Buddy Baseball,” she said. “The coaches and the helpers, they help us with the batting and the pitching. We have a lot of fun at the games.” While the Buddy Baseball League continues to grow in popularity (the league will have 90 to 100 players in two age divisions this season), it remains an expensive endeavor. A nominal fee for players only covers a small portion of the cost, and they offer a number of scholarships for families who might have financial difficulties. The league depends on outside sponsorships, donations and a charitable event to continue operating. That event is the third annual Buddy Run 5k and Fun Run, which will be Nov. 3 at Lake Park, 17302 N. Dale Mabry Highway. Last year’s event featured approximately 260 runners and raised more than $10,000 for Buddy Baseball and Congregation Beth Am, a Reform Jewish congregation serving Lutz, New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Westchase and all surrounding areas. The event includes a competitive 5k Run at 8 a.m., a one-mile Fun Run at 9 a.m. and a Buddy Dash for runners with special needs only.

And that hard work is paying off as she’s set to take part in the Nature Valley First Tee Open in Pebble Beach next month. The open, Sept. 27-29, will give Romeo a chance to pair up with members of the PGA Champions Tour, who serve as mentors. “I had to apply for a spot,” said Romeo, a member of The First Tee of Tampa Bay, a golf group designed to provide affordable and accessible golf to children from moderate socioeconomic backgrounds. Romeo is one of 81 participants selected from First Tee chapters from around the country, and was the only girl asked to apply from the Tampa Bay chapter. “You have to write essays, and have volunteers hours, along with golf,” she said. The 16-year-old Freedom High School junior from Tampa Palms has already accomplished quite a bit, both on and off the links. Just last year, she won the Class 2A-District 10 golf championship as well as a regional title en route to an 11th-place finish at states — all after recovering from surgery. “Terese had surgery and came back with a cast,” Freedom girls golf coach Rich Simard said. “She had to play four matches to qualify for district, and I had her go out and play. She used her left hand and swung with one hand. I’ve never seen anything like that all the years I’ve been around golf.” The team played off the red tees, which are typically placed behind the white tees for championship tourneys. Romeo has battled with injuries in the past. She hurt her wrist competing in gymnastics a couple years back, forcing her to miss her entire freshman golf season. Now, after two surgeries, Romeo is poised to have her best-ever high school season on the links.“Now everything is great,” she said. “I hit the ball really straight and put the ball in places where I need to place it.”Romeo competes in American Junior Golf Association tournaments, and is a longtime member of The First Tee of Tampa Bay, a program of the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA.“I’ve known Terese since she first started with us when she was eight or nine years old,” First Tee golf coach Jeff Leonard said. “She’s such a competitor. Her putting and chipping comes naturally, and her swing is consistent. She can drive the ball 230 yards.” Leonard is also impressed with Romeo’s work off the links, amassing at least 400 volunteer hours, mostly as a park camp counselor for younger kids. “The First Tee has been really good for her,” Leonard said. “It gives her a place to channel her energy.” And now it will give her a chance to play with a PGA legend at Pebble Creek where the competition will be tough, but there will be a lot to learn as well. “I’d like to play with Tom Watson or Hale Irwin,” Romeo said. “I met Hale during a senior tour tournament here in Tampa. I was in the gallery during the pro-am event and his amateur walked over to me and asked me to hit his golf ball.” It was a par-3 hold, and Romeo had to hit it on the green. “Hale came over and talked with me, and walked with me down the fairway,” Romeo said. “I’ve seen him a couple of times since, and he remembered me. He’s a nice guy.” “It was a par-3 hole and I hit it on the green. Hale came over and talked with me and walked with me down the fairway. I’ve seen him a couple of times since and he remembered me. He’s a nice guy.” The 5-foot, 93-pound Romeo works hard at refining her game when she isn’t competing against opponents. “I practice almost every day,” said Romero, who scored a hole-in-one when she was 13. “I’ll play four, nine or 18 holes. I need to practice more.” Romeo’s plans for the future include playing golf in college — just to start. “I want to become a teaching pro out of college,” she said. “Then maybe try to make the LPGA tour.” And if anyone can accomplish that, it’s Romeo, her Freedom coach added. “Terese has a great attitude for the game of golf,” Simard said. “I think if she continues to progress like she has progressed, she could be one of the top high school players in the country.”Romeo to match golf talents with PGA Champions on tour Terese Romeo tees off during a practice round at Rogers Park, part of The First Tee of Tampa Bay. Romeo, who participates in the group designed to provide affordable and accessible golf to children, will take part in a Champions Tour event in Pebble Creek in September.
