Details on page 18 A GOLFERS diet consists of lots of GREENS By Michael Hinman m h i n m an@cnewspubs.co m His first real exposure to heroism came when his mother married a man who served with the 82nd Airborne Division during World War II. “I don’t think he believed he would come back alive,” Gov. Rick Scott told local veterans last week of his stepfather. “In the Navy, no one shot at me, and I didn’t have to jump out of perfectly good airplanes like he did.” But it’s because of his stepfather Scott said he realized that “America will remain the land of the free only so long as it remains the home of the brave.” Scott visited with veterans last week at the Baldomero Lopez State Veterans’ Home on Parkway Boulevard, sharing stories, and handing out his Veterans Service Awards medals. “It’s so important that we honor and give thanks to our American veterans, our heroes,” Scott said. “It is important that we don’t wait just for the holidays to thank our Parade of 400 choppers honor fire rescueBy Michael Hinman m h i n m an@cnewspubs.co m It’s never too early in the morning to ride a motorcycle, especially when it’s all to say thank you to firefighters and emergency first responders. Some 400 cyclists showed up at the Pasco County Government Center on US 41 Saturday to participate in the annual Sept. 11 Gratitude Ride. The event, organized by local Realtor Dan Turner and his wife Cheryl, is a way these chopper enthusiasts honor members of Pasco County Fire Rescue, and raise money for the Pasco County Fire Benevolent Fund. “Make no mistake about it, this is a 9/11 event,” Turner told the crowd during a short ceremony. “It has been 12 years. Can you be-Rick Scott visits to honor local veteransBy B.C. Manion bc m an i on@cnewspubs.co m Gerald Stanley wants to build the first private toll road in the state. And he wants to build it across Pasco County. Stanley, a retired road builder from Lutz who is a partner with International Infrastructure Partners LLC, submitted an unsolicited proposal June 11 to the state Department of Transportation proposing a toll road be built along the SR 54/SR 56 corridor. That would link Wesley Chapel to New Port Richey, with the possible addition of Wesley Chapel to US 301 in Zephyrhills. The partnership proposes to lease the right-of-way from the state and both build and operate a 33-mile toll road. Much of the road would be elevated, but portions would be at ground level where necessary. It would be constructed in phases, with the first leg planned for SR 54/56 from Bruce B. Downs Boulevard to the Suncoast Parkway. The second phase would go from the Suncoast Parkway to US 19 in New Port Richey. A possible third phase would extend the road from Bruce B. Downs to Zephyrhills. It’s possible, however, that phases one and two would be combined immediately for cost efficiency. Stanley touted the benefits of the pro-Pasco could have state’s first private toll road Dan Turner, left, and his wife Cheryl, address the bikers in front of the Pasco County Government Center on US 41 Saturday, ahead of their ride to honor members of Pasco County’s Fire Rescue as part of the Pasco County Choppers Sept. 11 Gratitude Ride. Nearly 400 motorcycles showed up for this year’s Sept. 11 Gratitude Ride, sponsored by Pasco County Choppers to honor members o f Pasco County’s Fire Rescue and raise money for its benevolent fund.

Man i on bcmanion@cnewspubs.com When Andy Hamilton goes rummaging around at a swap meet or flea market, he’s always on the lookout for the makings of his metal works of art. What might look like a colander to most instead looks like a turtle shell to Hamilton. Pot lids and air-conditioning gauges are eyes. Hedge clippers and rakes make good wings. Rusty pipe wrenches bounce back to life as grasshoppers. Hamilton sees possibilities everywhere. “These two bikes here, they came from a flea market,” said Hamilton, 62, outside his workshop in Lutz. “The guy was just trying to get rid of them. Five dollars a piece. I’ll take the front forks off of them, use them for legs. Chains, I’ll use for manes on a horse. The satellite dish arm? “This is the neck of a horse.” And the post-hole diggers? “These are the heads for alligators,” he said. “Potato forks are usually tail feathers for a bird.” Hamilton is a Lutz-based artist with Twisted Mind Rusty Metal, a company that specializes in recycling old metal and other objects into art. Where other people see obsolete car parts, rusted garden implements, empty bottles and old tools, Hamilton envisions whimsical works of art. “Somehow, I can see something,” Hamilton said. “People have asked me, ‘What kind of drug do you take? Do you drink a lot?’ It seems like the crazier I make stuff, the more people like it.” Bins and shelves in his workshop are chock-full of the raw materials of his artworks. He has another collection of salvaged goods that he plans to recycle outside next to his shop. “You’ve got to have a stockpile,” Hamilton said. As he surveys his shop, there is stuff everywhere. “It’s a disorganized, organized mess,” he said. Hamilton hunts regularly for old golf clubs, and often finds them for a dollar each at thrift stores. “I just cut all of these off the shafts,” he said, motioning to a stack of club heads. The steel pieces become ears for dogs and feet for pigs. “A lot of people throw these away,” Hamilton said, pointing to some empty helium tanks. “They end up in the trash and when I see ‘em, I grab ‘em.” The tanks become the bodies of pigs and other animals. Hamilton, who has spent more than four decades working in masonry, started his metal art business more than two years ago. It started when he decided to make a couple of things for his wife’s garden. “A friend of hers had sold plants at plant shows,” he said. “She told me to bring some along and see if they would sell.” They did sell, and the company was born — using a name his wife, Sheila, created. Over the past couple of years, he has sold 700 to 800 pieces, ranging in price from $35 to $400. He now spends nearly every evening out in the workshop behind his house, where he sandblasts rusted parts, welds pieces together and paints to create Chihuahuas, pigs, robots, weather vanes, sunflowers, birds and all sorts of critters. On weekends, one can find Hamilton making the rounds — either to events where he’s selling his art, or at swap meets, garage sales and flea markets where he’s picking up materials he can recycle.“Starting September through basically March, that’s the busy season,” Hamilton said.Over Labor Day weekend, for instance, he had a booth at the 13th annual Gulfport Geckofest on Saturday. By Sunday, he was at a swap meet in Bushnell. Monday, he hit the flea market in Webster.During the off-season, typically November through March, Hamilton spends Saturday mornings in Dunedin at the Green Market. And the third Friday of each month, he’s in Safety Harbor between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. He also does three shows a year in Lakeland.He also attends the Lutz Arts & Crafts Festival Christmas show. “Last year we sold like 26 pieces on Saturday, and at least 10 or 12 on Sunday,” Hamilton said, adding he sells even more during the town’s Fourth of July celebration. Hamilton’s wife is a big supporter of his artistic pursuits. “She wants me to quit masonry for this,” said Hamilton, who believes someday he will.For Lutz man, it’s not junk … it’s art Hamilton uses his welder to bind pieces of metal together as he works on a crab, one of many creatures he creates from recycled materials.

(Photo courtesy of Patricia Serio)By D i ane Kortu s Pu b l i sher Running a newspaper is not much different than running any other small business. All successful businesses work to give customers what they want at a fair price so they continue to be their customer and tell friends and family about their products and services.If you are a restaurant, you offer a menu filled with dishes customers have asked for and prepared by the best chef in town. If you are a retail store, you sell products people want so they come back and shop again. At The Laker/Lutz News, our customers are both readers and advertisers. We know that if we give you stories and information about people and issues that are important to you, you will read your paper cover to cover, week after week, and share what you’ve read with family and friends. And we know that your readership has a direct impact on the bottom line of our other customer — businesses that advertise in our papers. The better and more completely you read your paper, the more you will take note of the adjacent ads. Which brings me to why we’re making some changes to the kinds of stories we write in The Laker/Lutz News. Last spring we hired an independent research company to ask readers what type of news they want in their community paper. This was done in conjunction with our annual circulation audit that verifies the number of papers we print and deliver. This study revealed the No. 1 reason people like you read The Laker/Lutz News is to learn about things to do in their community. Our best-read section is What’s Happening with its news briefs about upcoming activities and events. Because readers put What’s Happening at the top of their list, we’re expanding this section and increasing our coverage of community events before they take place. B.C. Manion, our community editor for the past three years, is taking on this charge and welcomes suggestions on events you’d like to see covered. The second topic most requested is business news. You want to know what’s coming when you see a new commercial building underway. You want to know about local road improvements and how they will impact your drive to work. You are curious about local businesses, big and small, and are looking for new places to shop and professional services in your neighborhood. To increase our business coverage, in late July we hired Michael Hinman as our news editor because of his community and business journalism background. In addition to working for several area weekly newspapers, Michael spent five years as a reporter at the Tampa Bay Business Journal. Like B.C., Michael also welcomes your story ideas. Both journalists can be reached at (813) 909-2800 or by email at bcmanion@cnewspubs.com or mhinman@cnewspubs.com. You may have already noticed that there’s more business news in your paper. Last week, for example, we were the first to report on the expansion of Florida Medical Clinic’s new facilities in Zephyrhills and Carrollwood. This week we have a story on the elevated expressway for SR 54 that’s being proposed by a private developer. I began this column talking about the importance of giving customers what they want. That’s why we’re committing more of our resources to stories you want to read. And why you’re seeing more stories about upcoming events, local businesses and growth and development.With more than 60,000 readers, it’s impossible to give every single person everything they want in their community paper. But know that we’re acting on the best information we have to give you the kinds of stories you tell us you’re most interested in reading in The Laker/Lutz News.

His plane is a fraction of the size of the original Scout Experimental 5, which was nearly 21 feet long, more than 9 feet high, and weighed 1,410 pounds when empty. But when it’s in the air, it’s hard to believe it’s only radio-controlled. “It’s just a model, until it flies,” Utt said. “After that, it’s an airplane.” The S.E.5a is one of more than a couple dozen radio-controlled planes from the “Downton Abbey” era scheduled to dazzle aviation fans Sept. 14 at the Golden Era FlyIn. The event, presented by Bay City Flyers of Land O’ Lakes, is open to spectators and pilots alike at Connerton Preserve’s Area 52 field just off SR 52. “You pay a small fee to fly, which is a fundraiser for the club,” Utt said. Spectators are also welcome beginning at 9 a.m. for a modest $3 donation at the gate. The field itself was a grazing area for cattle just a decade ago, and now consists of two pavilions and grassy runways on land now owned by the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Club members built the field and maintain it. It has become a popular daily stop for many of the local club’s more than 200 members. During the week, some flyers could be out as early as sunrise, and many stay until after lunch. On the weekends, many of the clubs’ younger members stop by, many times father and son teams enjoying the open sky. Area 52 is one of three fields Bay City uses, but each one is special, said one of the group’s leaders, Mike Diesu. Despite the use of mufflers and flying when few other people are around, the hobby of radio-controlled planes is not something usually well-accepted in neighborhoods. “Clubs usually lose locations because of development,” said Joe Barzyz, who moved to the area from New Jersey in 2005. “People who have an interest in all this think it’s nice, but the problem is that once you put a house on the other side of the road, and they start hearing the mufflers, you have a problem.” Area 52 is good because it’s a preserve, and there isn’t a house for miles. The only thing interfering with flying there, besides bad weather, are sandhill cranes. If one of those protected birds shows up on a runway, everything stops until they make their way elsewhere on the land. Flyers at Area 52 respect the birds, and the land they use. They are careful to not spill fuel on the grass, and keep the whole area maintained, including grass mowing. Bay City Flyers also stay active in the community, helping with food drives, and teaching aviation students. Flying a radiocontrolled plane is not as easy as it looks, and getting good at it could take as long as becoming an actual pilot. Sometimes, new flyers will spend thousands of dollars on equipment, and go out feeling like they’re ready to go. But after their first crash — and there are many crashes in radio-controlled flying — they can become discouraged easily. “It’s only as expensive as you want it to be,” Utt said. While some planes can cost upward of $3,000, many good ones can be found for less than $300. In fact, Bay City encourages people to join before they even buy a plane, to learn how to fly, use some of the club’s equipment, and then use that experience in buying their own plane. And fly-ins, like the one next week, are great tools to add more pilots to the ranks. The Golden Era Fly-In will run from 9 a.m. through 2 p.m., and features planes from 1919 to 1939. Landing fees for pilots are $10, and free lunch will be offered to all Academy of Model Aeronautics members who are flying. Lunch will be available for spectators for a small price. For more information, visit BayCityFlyers.org. Radio-controlled planes go back in time at fly-in An S.E.5a plane, built to scale from an actual World War I plane by Larry Utt, soars through the sky above Connerton Preserve’s Area 52 field. Joe Barzyz of Spring Hill fuels up his Cub radio-controlled airplane, preparing it for flight on Connerton Preserve. This hand-built Cub is one of many planes that visitors can see at the Golden Era Fly-In on Sept. 14 at Connerton’s Area 52 field. (Photos by Michael Hinman)

Traditional treatments for chronic pain are only focused on treating symptoms with prescription drugs and in the case of diabetes, by controlling blood sugar. But drugs are expensive, often have limited effectiveness and can result in unpleasant side effects. If only physical therapy is prescribed, patients often do not find lasting relief. NeuropathyDR is a new breakthrough program for people who suffer from various forms of neuropathy. In addition to successfully treating the symptoms of these chronic diseases, it also addresses the true root causes and fosters independence.Fortunately for area residents, Dr. Craven is the only doctor in Tampa Bay to offer this new NeuropathyDR program and his office is close to home for residents in Pasco and north Hillsborough counties. What Exactly Is Diabetic Neuropathy?This chronic disease is a result of nerve damage that results in pain, weakness, burning and tingling in the hands and feet. Its root cause is most often trauma, medications and systemic diseases like diabetes. An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from this debilitating illness.How Does NeuropathyDR Help?This comprehensive program of patient care incorporates nutrition, dietary changes, exercise and rehab therapies. It uses clinically tested NDGen home care electrical therapy units, along with massage, spinal therapy and LASER THERAPY, to achieve lasting pain relief and longterm self-management of their illness.What Makes NeuropathyDR Different From Other Treatments? This protocol begins by establishing a baseline upon which to improve and then develops four key areas: 1.) Determine what caused a patients neuropathy, fibromyalgia or chronic pain in the first place 2.) Diet analysis and specific nutritional supplement combinations 3.) Using Laser Therapy and NDGen nerve stimulators to heal and restore function. 4.) Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Craven monitors his patients progress and adjusts their individual, specific treatment plans based upon their clinical results to achieve maximum relief. The Bottom Line This program is for the patient that is serious, really serious, about restoring their health, normal daily function, independence, and reducing their dependency on drugs.For diabetic neuropathy there is usually four to six weeks of supervised in-office treatments, then patients continue on a personal, home-care program. Most patients need only periodic, in-clinic follow-ups. Other conditions may require less.Craven Chiropractic uses the highest quality professional and research-supported nutritional products and therapy tools. Laser Therapy especially has shown fantastic results with a multitude of painful conditions. Dr. Craven is always available for follow up and emergencies. The office phone is answered live 24/7, offering you direct contact with Dr. Craven by phone or email, at all reasonable hours of every day. He gladly shares clinical support materials with your physicians and always refers you back to your personal physicians for careful monitoring of underlying medical conditions.Craven Chiropractic Offers Patients Breakthrough Treatment for Diabetic Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia and Chronic PainDo you or a loved one suffer from Diabetic Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia or Chronic Pain?

men and women, we must take every opportunity to thank them.” The medal Scott and his wife Ann gave to veterans in Land O’ Lakes last week has the Florida state seal on front, and the five seals representing the different branches of the armed forces on the back. Scott singled out one resident during his speech, Sgt. First Class Angel Torres-Mendez, who served between 1947 and 1974, completing 18 missions — many of them solo missions — in Vietnam. “He’s proud of his accomplishments, not his medal,” Scott said. “Like many of our residents here, his heart is as patriotic as it was when he joined the service many years ago.” A total of 136 veterans were honored with the medal during last Thursday’s ceremony, honoring whom Sen. John Legg described as “super.” Legg, R-Lutz, shared a conversation he said he had with his 5-yearold son that morning about where he was going. “’I am going to go stand and talk to some heroes,’ and his eyes got real big, ‘Are you going to meet Superman?’” Legg said. “I am going to see some super men and super women who, in our nation’s darkest hour, stood in front of tyranny, stood in front of those things that seemed hopeless, and brought light into the world.” Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw Jr., who has served as the adjutant general of Florida for the last three years, said the state’s 12,000soldier strong National Guard is “focused on the future, and our horizons.” “But we have a deep appreciation of our heritage, and that heritage you contributed to and built,” Titshaw said. “We literally stand upon your shoulders and accomplishments, taking over the nation you provided to us, safe and secure.” Galleria, Gifts & Gathering€ Live Music € Food € Raffles € Giveaways € Meet the Artists € Discounts GRAND OPENING Saturday, September 14, 2013 € 9am 9pmUNIQUE, LOCAL, HAND-MADE ART & FINE CRAFTSFREEDOM PLAZA II 30056 State Road 54 € Wesley Chapel 2 mi east of I-75 & 1 mi east of Saddlebrook Resort Open Tuesday-Saturday 11-7 813.501.4994 ADULT CUTFREE SHAMPOO & LITE DRYBlow-dry style, curling iron, flat iron, set, design lines or specialty cuts extra.

CORRECTIONThe Land O’ Lakes location for Florida Medical Clinic is located on SR 54. A different road was given in a Sept. 4 story about the company’s expansion efforts. Gov. Rick Scott speaks to residents of Baldomero Lopez State Veterans Home in Land O’ Lakes during a ceremony last week. ‘America will remain the land of the free only so long as it remains the home of the brave,’ he said. (Photo by Michael Hinman) VETERANS, from page 1 posed project in a letter addressed to Anath Prasad, the secretary of the state roads department. “This will be the first of its kind, privately funded, designed, built, operated and maintained elevated expressway in the state of Florida,” Stanley wrote. “It will create thousands of jobs for Floridians, further economic development in Pasco County, improve traffic flow, and promote use of existing and future transportation facilities.” International Infrastructure Partners was formed specifically to manage the project and consists of engineers, accountants and financial professionals, according to Stanley’s proposal. The construction would be done by PCL, a company that is currently working on the Interstate 4 connector project. The company also has completed work for the toll-funded Lee Roy Selmon Crosstown Expressway. Guggenheim Securities LLC would be the capital partner for the project, Stanley said, soliciting investments through a fund called “FL54Xpressway.” Kris Carson, spokeswoman for District 7 of the DOT, said it is too early to tell if any project like this would come to fruition. “It could be that nothing ever happens,” Carson said. “There are a lot of questions to be answered.” In response to Stanley’s proposal, the state roads department issued a request for proposals to encourage a competitive process, and set a date of Oct. 23 for opening those proposals. John Hagen, president and CEO of the Pasco Economic Development Council Inc., said when the idea of a toll road was initially raised, there were questions about who would pay for it, and its financial feasibility. The fact that a private group has stepped forward and is willing to pay for it, gives legitimacy to the concept, he said. Like Carson, Hagan said it is too early to tell if a project will materialize. “There are a lot of technical questions that need to be answered,” Hagan said. But if a toll road is built, it will provide an additional transportation option that will allow traffic to move quickly across the county on a toll road, while local traffic uses the surface streets, the economic development expert said. Steps must be taken to increase traffic capacity, Hagan said. Otherwise, “eventually SR 54/SR 56 will just become a parking lot.” Jeff Miller, a real estate agent and resident of Wesley Chapel, said he welcomes this type of project. He sees it as a way for people, like himself, to get to New Port Richey and Pinellas County much more quickly than is possible now. “It’s not a done deal. We’re all trying to determine if it’s feasible,” Stanley said. “If it’s not profitable, it won’t be built.” If the project is done, however, it will employ hundreds of construction workers and will bring more industry to Pasco County. It will also help prevent gridlock, as Pasco continues to grow, said Stanley, who has been a part of the Florida Transportation Builders Association for 35 years, and was the group’s president in 2005-06. “We’re looking to the future,” he said. In its request for proposals, the state DOT requires those interested in pursuing a private toll road to obtain required approvals, talk specifics at how it would build the road, and share any future infrastructure build-outs. The submitter must also demonstrate its ability to further economic development in the region and state, protect the environment, create temporary and permanent jobs in Florida, improve transportation efficiency and otherwise benefit citizens and the state. The state would not provide any funding for the project, according to the RFP. A decision on awarding the project would occur on Nov. 6, according to the request for proposal.TOLL, from page 1 lieve it? Unfortunately a lot of people have forgotten all about it, and we just want to make sure everybody remembers.” The Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks killed 412 emergency workers in New York City alone, all of them trying to rescue people from the World Trade Center after each tower was struck by a commercial jetliner. But it’s not just during terrorist attacks they put their lives on the line. This year alone, 79 firefighters have lost their lives in the line of duty, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Between 1977 and 2011, there have been 4,325 on-duty firefighter fatalities — an average of 127 each year. The Benevolent Fund raises money not for equipment or vehicles, but instead to help members of the Pasco County Fire Rescue when they may need a little financial assistance. “They are the ones that always say it’s just a job, but we all know they run into danger as we are running away from it,” Turner told The Laker/Lutz News last month. “As we reflect back on that horrible day back in September 2001, we remember all the public safety personnel (who) were affected,” said Pasco County Fire Chief Scott Cassin. “They were doing everything they do every day: saving lives and saving property.”Pasco County Choppers, which hosted the event, said nearly $4,900 was raised for the local benevolent fund, more than double what was raised last year. Even winners of the poker run, a fun event to encourage motorcyclists to visit multiple locations, gave a little back.“Winners of the poker run reverted nearly all of the money they won back to the cause,” Turner said in an email after the event. “Once again (it shows) that the biker community is there for those that lay their lives on the line for us, every single day of the year.”CHOPPERS, from page 1 Linda Sue Denmark, center, of Brooksville spends time with her husband, Randy Denmark, left, and Michael Hixson of New Port Richey ahead of the Sept. 11 Gratitude Ride from the Pasco County Government Center last weekend.

Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Pasco County residents like to express themselves at the polls, but aren’t all that interested in attending public meetings. When they need to go to work, chances are they’ll hop in their car and drive themselves there. And, when it comes to ranking efforts to create jobs and grow the economy — they see plenty of room for improvement.These are just a few of the findings from the National Citizen Survey, which offers a glimpse of how Pasco residents view the quality of life in the county and provides a basic report card on government services.The survey is a collaborative effort between the National Research Center Inc. and the International City/County Management Association. The survey was developed by the National Research Center to provide a statistically valid survey of resident opinions about the services provided by local government. The survey was distributed to 1,200 randomly selected addresses, and of those, 243 were returned for a return rate of 23 percent. The survey has a plus or minus 6 percent margin of error. According to the survey, 91 percent of those responding said they are registered to vote and 81 percent said they made it to the polls on Election Day. Far fewer seemed interested in making their opinions known at public meetings. Just 21 percent of the survey takers said they attended a meeting of local elected officials or other local public meeting in the last year. When it comes to getting around, 76 percent reported that they drive alone in their car to get the work, and just 7 percent said they’d been on a bus in the county during the past year. Fewer than a third gave good or excellent marks to ease of biking or walking around the county. Overall, 68 percent of those surveyed gave Pasco County a good or excellent mark for its quality of life. But just 34 percent gave good or excellent marks to economic development, and a whopping 85 percent said job growth is too slow. Opportunities to attend cultural events also scored poorly, with just 30 percent giving good or excellent marks in that category. On a brighter note, however, 79 percent gave excellent or good marks for the county’s public library services. The survey rated a number of county services, which were compared to a benchmark database. Of the 40 services for which comparison was available, none exceeded the benchmark, 15 were similar and 25 were ranked below. Despite that outcome, though, 81 percent of those surveyed said they would be somewhat or very likely to recommend living in Pasco County, and 83 percent said they planned to remain in Pasco for the next five years. The county has made gains in some areas. The availability of affordable health care, for instance, was rated as good or excellent by 60 percent of the survey takers, compared to 46 percent last year and 44 percent in 2009. Health services, overall, also scored a higher mark — with good or excellent ratings by 64 percent, compared to 57 percent last year and 49 percent in 2009. Parks and recreation also picked up a few points, with 50 percent of those surveyed rating recreational opportunities as good or excellent, compared to 45 percent last year. On the public safety front, 93 percent of the respondents reported feeling safe or somewhat safe in their homes during the day. Five percent of those surveyed said they or someone in their household had been a victim of crime — compared to 14 percent the previous year. However, just 72 percent said they reported the crime to police, compared with 84 percent reporting it the year before. The Pasco County Commission is expected to hear a report on the survey when they meet Sept. 4. The item had been on the commission’s Aug. 27 agenda, but was delayed because of long discussions on other issues.Residents weigh in on Pasco’s quality of life

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 11, 2013 14 Church provides personal touch with concierge ministryBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com It’s a mammoth church — with a 143acre campus, a 440,000-square-foot building and 12,000 members. It’s so big that it uses five entrances on Sundays to allow members to stream into its 5,000-seat auditorium. Despite the scale, Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz wants to extend a personal touch to its members, said Rich Walker. He’s a church staff member who also leads Idlewild Concierge, a ministry with 30 volunteers. And more than eight years ago, when Idlewild was moving into its larger quarters off North Dale Mabry Highway and Van Dyke Road, Walker came up the idea of creating a concierge ministry. “We’re still the only one that I know of, anywhere,” said Walker, a retired law enforcement officer who oversees campus safety. The ministry helps visitors and church newcomers tend to details that are important to them. The idea came to Walker when a hotel concierge service helped him and his wife. They were traveling and wanted to go for dinner, but they didn’t want to have to drive to get there. Walker’s wife suggested he ask the concierge for some recommendations. He did, and within 15 minutes they had a list of restaurant options, with different specialties and price points, along with directions for getting to them. Idlewild’s concierge ministry strives to create a sense of hospitality, with the motto of “Providing the unexpected personal touch,” Walker said. Ministry volunteers work at the church’s welcome center to greet people who are visiting the campus. Sometimes they help people find their way around campus. Other times they provide individual tours to help potential members learn about the church’s ministries and ways to meet their specific needs. “There’s not a line out the door, but every week, somebody will come and they want to look at the church,” Walker said. “They’ll just show up on their own.” The concierge will get a bit of information about the visitor and will let them know about various ministries that may suit their interests, Walker said. The idea is to help them plug in and feel at home, he said. “There are some people on a real factfinding tour, is this the church for me? That can take a couple of hours,” Walker said. That’s what happened when Margery Cordova recently visited the church, Walker recalled. “She told me right up front, ‘I am looking for a church home.’ That told me, ‘We kind of want to dive deep here and see if this is a good fit,’” he said. Cordova was impressed. “I got the deluxe grand tour of the whole facility,” said the woman who moved to Lutz in late July from Sacramento, Calif., after her husband’s death. Besides discussing ministries that may be of interest and showing off the facilities, Walker enjoys giving visitors a look at “backstage” Idlewild. The walk-through involves traveling through corridors decked with framed photographs taken through the years during big church events. Visitors can duck into the choir and orchestra rooms and check out the staging area where props are kept for church productions. They can even walk down a passageway that leads from the orchestra room to the raised stage in the worship center. Besides helping newcomers and visitors, the ministry also pitches in on special events. Team members drive trams at the church’s Fourth of July event, for instance, and give airport shuttle rides to special guests. The team once arranged airport pickups for 65 missionaries visiting Idlewild. They met the missionaries at the airport, took them to their hotels, transported them to the church each day and ferried them around on errands.One volunteer helped organize the logistics by creating an Excel spreadsheet detailing the airline and arrival time of each missionary. The concierge ministry at Idlewild pays attention to details. And that makes a difference for both members and visitors alike. “Everyone there is just super welcoming and genuine,” Cordova said. “It’s not a phony thing. You really feel it’s sincere. I feel like I was led there.” Rich Walker, manager of campus safety at Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church, leads the concierge ministry at the church. The idea is to provide ‘an unexpected personal touch,’ he said. (Photos by B.C. Manion) Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church sits on 143 acres.

Its the health screening that everyone 50 and older dreads: colonoscopy. Most fear the preparation and worry that the procedure itself will hurt, but the most frightening thing about a colonoscopy is what can happen if you skip it. A colonoscopy can find pre-cancerous growths as small as one millimeter before they can turn into deadly tumors. Even though colon cancer can be a slow growing cancer, cells from polyps growing in the colon can grow into lymph nodes or metastasize (spread) to parts of the body such as the liver. The good news is that regular screening is the most powerful weapon for preventing colorectal cancer in its earliest stages, when its easier to treat,Ž said Christian Bailey, M.D., a gastroenterologist at St. Josephs Hospital in Tampa and St. Josephs Hospital-North in Lutz. Removing polyps can help prevent cancer from starting yet nearly half of all adults skip the test.Ž Kevin Kruszewski turned 50 and knew he was on the clock for his first colonoscopy, but he didnt do it right away. Like most, Kruszewski was skeptical about the potential discomfort. Then a couple of years passed and he found himself past due for the screening. Finally, he called Dr. Bailey and scheduled the procedure. I was concerned because I was a couple of years past due for my first colonoscopy, but I quickly felt at ease after my visit with Dr. Bailey,Ž Kruszewski said. While he agrees the preparation wasnt pleasant, it certainly wasnt bad enough to avoid the important procedure altogether. I had to follow a special diet for a couple of days and take some medication … I stayed home the day before and it really wasnt that bad,Ž he said. As for the procedure itself, Kruszewski summed it up, It really wasnt a big deal!Ž Kevin, like most of my patients, learned that colon screening typically takes less than 30 minutes and the majority of the discomfort is due to the preparation during the day before,Ž Dr. Bailey explained. Afterwards, patients are just a bit woozy from anesthesia but can return home after a couple of hours and resume normal activity.Ž If a polyp is found, it will be removed during the test, and often times no further treatment is necessary,Ž Bailey said. Patients also should know that while the recommendation for colonoscopy screening is to start at age 50, some patients may have risk factors that require them to begin screening earlier, while others may not have to return for additional screening for years to come. For Kruszewski, his test results came with good news, Dr. Bailey said he will see me in 10 years!Ž For a physician referral for your colonoscopy, please contact St. Josephs Hospital-North at (813) 443-2010. 4211 Van Dyke Road  Lutz StJosephsNorth.org Christian Bailey, M.D. Living Well A Quick Health Screening that Can Save Your Life CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 CO MM UNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 11, 2013 15 € Comprehensive Physical Exams € Customized Preventative Health Care € Digital Radiography € In-House Laboratory € On-Site Pharmacy € Anesthesia & Surgery € Pain Management € Dental Scaling & Polishing € House Calls Available 17945 State Road 54 € Lutz DR.

Sunlake stays calm, steady even after Pasco upsetBy Michael Murillo The Laker/Lutz News Correspondent Every high school football team has some optimism when they start a new season. But if your first opponent is considered the best in the county — riding a 38-game regular season winning streak — that optimism might be tempered. Unless you’re the Sunlake Seahawks. The Seahawks never trailed in a 17-6 home victory over the Pasco Pirates on Aug. 30. And even though the gridiron crew from Sunlake High School is considered a strong team in their own right, they know it was a special accomplishment to beat someone who hasn’t seen the losing column in the regular season since 2009. “I hate to rank victories, but it was obviously a huge victory just from the fact that Pasco has dominated everybody in the regular season for so long,” said Coach Bill Browning, who has been with Sunlake’s football program since its inception seven years ago. That tenure includes a few previous losses to the Pirates, but Browning feels that other milestone wins in the school’s history contributed to a sense that they could finally turn the corner against the county’s regular-season juggernaut. The Seahawks had a small lead when the marching bands took the field halfway through. While Browning was feeling good about his team’s chances, it wasn’t until the opening plays of the second half that he felt like it was going to be Sunlake’s night. “It was a close game going in at halftime,” Browning said. “We went out (to start the third quarter), received the football and took the first play for a long touchdown. That was huge. I think that gave us the momentum in the second half and they (Pasco) could never re-establish that momentum.”That play was a 64-yard touchdown run by the team’s starting fullback, junior Logan Wolfe. It was Wolfe’s second touchdown of the night and made him the team’s star in one of the school’s biggest wins. But he’s not interested in taking much credit for himself. “The huge run would never have happened if it wasn’t for this team’s offensive line. They produced that huge hole for me to run through, so that 64-yard run was all them,” Logan said. In fact, he credits his teammates on the other side of the ball — the Seahawks’ defense, which frustrated Pasco throughout the evening — with the key to the victory. He believes they have one of the best defenses in the state. Whoever gets to share credit for the big win, Browning is making sure they don’t get too overconfident from it: The Seahawks’ reward for toppling the Pirates was a tough week of practice to prepare for their next game this past weekend. Yet Sunlake persevered, beating River Ridge 25-0, and improving to 2-0 on the season. The team’s goals are the same as before — win the district title and reach the state playoffs. But Browning acknowledges that the win gave the Seahawks a boost and a little swagger, and shows the athletes what they’re capable of accomplishing. But Browning isn’t adopting any new swagger himself: With around 35 years of coaching experience and more than 20 years in the head coach’s role at schools like Hernando High School and Springstead High School in addition to Sunlake, he doesn’t allow himself to become too elated and dejected following a single game. In fact, it wasn’t long after the Friday night win that Browning turned his attention to their next opponent. “To be truthful, Saturday morning I was focused on River Ridge,” Browning said with a laugh. “I’m one who never gets too high, and I don’t get too low. I try to stay at a happy medium. Coaches who don’t do that get on roller coaster rides, and they’re the ones who have a tendency to burn out and don’t last very long in the game.” 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 11, 2013 16 SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS CHECK THIS OUT 6A-6 Football StandingsTeam WL PF PA Land O’ Lakes 2 0 56 7 Sunlake 2 0 42 6 Mitchell 2 0 65 47 Springstead 1 1 28 2 Fivay 1 1 48 70Senior Slo Pitch registrationThe Slo Pitch Softball League, geared toward players older than 60, will host registration Sept. 20 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Land O’ Lakes Recreation Complex, 3932 Collier Parkway in Land O’ Lakes.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 11, 2013 17 By Michael Murillo The Laker/Lutz News Correspondent If you've never seen the Tampa Bay Rebels, a semipro basketball team that plays its home games at Freedom High School in New Tampa, you might wonder if they're any good. Can a local team really play entertaining basketball at a high level? According to team founder and head coach Fernando Rojas, you'd be pleasantly surprised. "My opinion is this: We play the highest level of basketball in the Bay area," he said. "We have had players from the NBA's Developmental League, players that played on NCAA championship teams, and many players with experience in European basketball. This combination of skill and maturity elevates the game higher than any college level." If Rojas sounds confident in his team, it's because they have the history to back it up. Playing in the Florida Basketball Association, the team went 11-1 last year before dismantling the Heartland Prowl in the league's championship game. And in 2013, they followed it up with a 10-2 regular season and another trip to the championship game. This year, the Rebels came within a basket of back-to-back titles, losing 111-109 to that same Heartland Prowl club they defeated the year before. According to Rojas, building a winner in such a short time — the club started operations in 2011 — is no accident. He follows a corporate philosophy, which involves individual responsibility and goal setting, and he wants everyone onboard. That includes staff as well as players. Rojas’ director of scouting, Andrew Phillips, has been onboard since before the Rebels existed. Phillips was also involved with the Tampa Bay Sharks, a touring team Rojas founded before the Rebels, and he believes the Rebels' success begins with its founder. "I think a lot of it just has to do with leadership and the vision that Fernando has put into place,” Phillips said. “From an organizational standpoint, we try to have clear goals and objectives, and we've been fortunate to be able to meet most of those." Those goals include finding talent and executing on the court, but it doesn't stop there. The Rebels stay involved in the community, Rojas said, and he believes it's important for a local team to partner with local charities. "We all live in the same community: Players, fans and coaches,” he said. “It just makes sense to participate and make the lives of others better." The Rebels already have supported groups like Boys & Girls Club and Habitat for Humanity, and will be involved with the Police Athletic League next season. Rojas said he hopes to work with others in the future as well. The Rebels play their games at Freedom, but that's not the only connection to the school. Rojas is in his fourth year as a volunteer assistant coach for the school's varsity team, and he enjoys giving his student-athletes a chance to connect with veterans who have attained success at the collegiate and professional level. "Bringing my semipro team to Freedom gives the young players an opportunity to see players who attended renowned college programs and follow their dreams," Rojas said. Even though the team's season ended last month, the Rebels aren't the kind of franchise to sit idle. Tryouts are scheduled for next March, and Rojas is looking into taking the team abroad to face some foreign competition. And Phillips already is looking at improving the roster for next season with a focus on size at the power forward and center positions. He hopes to add players who will provide depth, and challenge existing team members for expanded playing time. As part of his scouting, Phillips looks at local colleges and leagues for athletes who want to continue playing and have the skills to compete at the level the Rebels demand, which ensures that the team retains its local roots.But regardless of the names on next year's roster, Phillips has confidence in the team because he has confidence in the man guiding them. "We know what we can do, we know what the goals are, and that they can be met,” Phillips said. “And there's a willingness on (Rojas') end to put in the time to get it done.” For more information on the Rebels, visit www.tampabayrebels.com.

Located in Sunset Point Center Families Love Elsas 41 Tex-Mex Sports GrillFamilies looking for affordable dining with something for everyone are flocking to Elsas 41 Tex-Mex Sports Grill in downtown Lutz. In addition to its trademark Tex-Mex cuisine, Elsas is known for its signature wings, excellent pizzas and outstanding specials „ 50-cent wings on Sundays, $1 tacos on Mondays and kids eat free on Tuesdays. Along with these incredible deals, diners can also choose from Elsas 2 for $20Ž menu, available every day, all day long, and includes one appetizer, two entres and one delicious dessert. Our portions are so generous that our 2 for $20Ž menu serves so much food that guests frequently ask for take-home boxes,Ž said Manager Justin Hemmert, whose family owns Elsas. In addition to a shared appetizer and dessert, each entree includes Mexican rice and refried beans. It really is a heck of a deal.Ž Elsas is a neighborhood restaurant located in the heart of downtown Lutz at US 41 and Sunset Boulevard. Just four miles south of State Road 54, and four miles north of Bearss Avenue, its patrons mostly come from Lutz, Land O Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Carrollwood and north Tampa. We truly are a neighborhood restaurant with a genuine, family atmosphere,Ž said Justin. We are a good alternative to chain restaurants for families looking for great food, great service and great prices. Plus, we have a full service bar and super happy hour prices for those wanting a beer, margarita or cocktail with their meal.Ž Elsas all-day, every-day drink special features two-for-one well drinks and $1.75 pint domestic drafts. It also offers $5 margaritas on Mondays and half-price bottled Mexican beer on Tuesdays. Elsas bar is best known for its trademark Bad Juan margarita, by far its most popular mixed drink … a clear, lime-based drink made from tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Complementing the Bad Juan is the Bad Juanita, a strawberry margarita popular with the ladies and young adults. Beware, the strawberry has the same alcohol content as the original. Our Bad Juans are very smooth for a margarita,Ž said Justin. People like them because they are delicious and also for their strong alcohol content, which is double the amount of liquor found in a bottle of wine. Elsas is owned and operated by the Hemmert family, a multigenerational restaurant family that has owned restaurants in Ohio for more than 30 years. Son Justin took over as general manager of the Lutz restaurant last fall. He grew up in the family business and worked in the kitchen through high school and college. After graduating, he spent 10 years working as a CPA, five of those years for a company located in Clearwater, before returning to the family business in 2009. Justins financial expertise and understanding of business operations has been invaluable in his management of our Lutz store,Ž said Bill Hemmert, Justins father and founder of the company. We want local residents to know that Elsas has a very strong capital base,Ž he continued. We can weather the normal up-and-downs of the restaurant business, and now with Justins financial background, our Lutz store is stronger than ever.Ž Were here to stay,Ž Justin adds.More Than Mexican – Something For Everyone Elsa’s owner Bill Hemmert, left, and his son Justin, proudly display a selection of their affordable family fare at their downtown Lutz restaurant. 813-948-3572€ 18450 North US 41, Lutz Elsas employees and customers want to congratulate long-time manager Amanda Torres on the birth of her beautiful baby daughter, Teagan.
