Areas surrounding Port Richey and New Port Richey have always been the focus of activity thanks to their proximity to Pinellas County. But by 2025, that could all change. The southern portion of Pasco County, which as late as 1990 had population rivaling only the northern rural parts of the county, will not only overtake the New Port Richey area, but will become the most populous in Pasco. The area, which includes Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass Ranch, could reach as high as 309,000 people by 2040, putting Pasco on the path to 1 million residents. And the county will have to be ready. “We have a big responsibility in the Tampa Bay area,” Melanie Kendrick, senior planner in Pasco County’s economic development department, told members of the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce late last month. “As companies are looking to come to this area, and companies in Hillsborough and Pinellas are expanding, they don’t have the room. And great cities grow north.” In 1990, the southern portion of theThey are coming, will Pasco be able to build it? By B.C. Manion bc m an i on@cnewspubs.co m A festival debuting in Lutz this year celebrates the joys of aviation. The Festival of Flight, presented by American Balloons and Tampa North Flight Center, will feature hot air balloons, kite-flying demonstrations and aircraft ranging from vintage World War II airplanes to stateof-the art flying machines. Festivities begin at 7 a.m. on Oct. 19, with a hot air balloon launch and wrap up that day with a night hot air balloon glow at Tampa North Aeropark, 4241 Birdsong Blvd. in Lutz. Activities will resume at 7 a.m. on Oct. 20, with another hot air balloon launch and activities will conclude around noon. Those wanting to watch the balloon launches are advised to arrive early and should bring chairs to sit on, according to the event’s website. “There will be balloons flying in and out,” said Jessica Warren of American Balloons, a company based at the flight center. Besides the hot air balloons and airplanes, Kiting Tampa Bay will also be there flying kites. And children will be able to make kites, Warren said. Other plans that are pending include paratroopers dropping in and tethered balloon rides, Warren said. The event celebrates the renovation of the private airport and the grand opening of The Happy Hangar caf. Various vendors will also be there, offering wares for sale or dispensing information about their businesses. Live music is planned, too. “We’ve been trying to bring the balloon festival in here for a really long time,” Warren said. “We really need something local. We want to share our love of aviation.” The Pasco County area is fortunate to have hot air balloon flights, Warren said. The only other place in Florida that offers hot air balloon rides is Orlando. Many people come from around the world to go for rides in her company’s balloons. A hot air balloon operates over Land O’ Lakes.

Manion bc m an i on@cnewspubs.co m Ashley Boothe has been engaged in a battle with breast cancer for the last seven months, but she wasn’t just fighting it for herself. The Wesley Chapel woman was also battling for her unborn child. On Oct. 4, at 10:17 a.m., she won part of the fight. She delivered her son, Scott Gregory Booth III. He weighed 4 pounds, 8 ounces, and was 18.5 inches long. “Mom and dad and everything is fine,” said Lilly Fontanez, a family friend, shortly after the baby’s birth. But the little boy’s birth was hardly a sure thing. When Boothe was just a couple weeks into her pregnancy, she found a lump in her left breast. “I was putting lotion on to prevent stretch marks and I felt it. It was like, ‘That’s weird,’” the 26year-old said. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had to make a decision. The doctor had informed her that her pregnancy was still in the early term and she could have an abortion. Boothe, however, was determined to have the baby. “I was like, ‘That word is not in my vocabulary. It’s not an option. God didn’t give me this baby for me to terminate him.’” Boothe, 26, said she made that decision even before she talked to the experts at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute who told her they could work around her pregnancy. The decision still carried increased concerns about her health and about the pregnancy. So, Booth told her husband Scott she would understand if he couldn’t support her decision. “I gave him an out card,” Boothe said. “He said, ‘Are you kidding me? You’re crazy. I’m not going anywhere.’” Boothe made the overture, she said, because she understands that some people just aren’t built to handle these kinds of challenges. “They can’t,” Boothe said. “It’s not that they’re not a strong person and it’s not that they’re not a good person. They just can’t bear to see people go through something like that.” Boothe kicking cancer for herself, unborn child See FLIGHT, page14 See BOOTHE, page14 Ashley Boothe

By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com It takes more than tax incentives and good schools for kids to attract the manufacturing industry to Pasco County. It’s going to take a solid workforce base already living here. And that’s where programs like the engineering academy at schools like River Ridge High School come into play. The only program of its kind in Pasco County, these engineering students are learning about the ever-evolving manufacturing industry — one that more and more requires homegrown highly skilled labor to take on complex jobs. “Many times, kids don’t have a clue what they want to do when they graduate from high school,” said Bryan Kamm, director of public and government relations for Bauer Foundation Corp. in Odessa. “And when they do, they still don’t have the experience they need when they graduate from college. Here we’re trying to bridge that gap.” The doors of Bauer Foundation Corp., a company that specializes in building foundations and equipment, were opened to students around the area last week as part of National Manufacturing Day. PascoHernando Community College organized this year’s tours, providing an in-the-field look at industry to more than 160 students in the River Ridge program as well as 100 more from Nature Coast Technical High School and Hernando Robotics Club. The River Ridge program pulls in students from all over the county, and continues to grow, said former school board member and current Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. “If you stay in engineering, you have the highest chance of anybody to get a job,” Starkey told some of the students during the Bauer Foundation Corp. visit. “Whether you go on to college, or you just want to get a job after high school, you will get the highest pay and have the most opportunities. “That, to me, is why engineering is so important. It will help bring American jobs back from overseas, and bring stability to our economy.” Manufacturing jobs have remained flat year-over-year in Florida, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics for August. The Tampa Bay region, which Pasco County is a part of, has actually witnessed manufacturing jobs drop 3 percent since last year. Yet, some 600,000 manufacturing jobs across the country remained unfilled because of the gaps between the job requirements and the skills of those who are applying for them, according to PHCC. Many young people, especially those under 25, aren’t even considering manufacturing jobs in their future. That’s despite the fact that manufacturing salaries are typically 19 percent higher than other jobs, according to a report from The Manufacturing Institute. The national trend is for salaries and benefits averaging at just under $79,000, while non-manufacturing jobs pay a little more than $66,000. Manufacturing jobs are also more likely to have benefits — 78 percent offer health care, for example — compared to non-manufacturing jobs, which only 54 percent offer similar benefits, according to the study. Pasco County offers a wide range of manufacturing opportunities through 320 different facilities, according to the Pasco Hernando Workforce Board. That includes 3,100 jobs in highly technical advanced fields in pharmaceutical packaging, aerospace, military and defense manufacturing, as well as the manufacturing of baking equipment, and storm and lightning detectors. The county also offers thermoforming jobs, where plastic is heated and shaped into different products. Bauer Foundation focuses on the construction of building foundations, and developing the equipment that creates it. A division of the German-based Bauer Group, the Pasco company employs up to 80 people at its Odessa site, but has more than 200 people working in construction sites across the Southeast. Bauer offers an apprenticeship program that allows high school students to apply for what becomes a job complementing their schoolwork. It introduces jobs that students may not even had known existed before, and helps create the local workforce manufacturing companies like Bauer needs. “We’re a very highly technical and skilled company from Germany, and when someone comes in the door and applies, generally they don’t have the skills they need to work for us,” Bauer’s Kamm said. “There ends up being this learning curve, where over a long period of time, they can come up to speed. And they can do that while still going to school.” Bauer typically takes in four students each year for its summer orientation program, a six-week program that is ultimately a long-term job interview. The best candidates from that group are offered on-the-job training that they can do during their junior and senior years, and while they continue their education. And if they choose a local school, like PHCC, Bauer also pays their tuition.For more information on National Manufacturing Day and how to pursue a job in the manufacturing industry, visit mfgday.com. 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 2 Restaurant Open to the Public Tee Times: 352-588-5454 10641 Old Tampa Bay Drive € San Antonio, FL 33576 (1/4 mile west of I-75 on SR 52) Featuring: 18 Hole Par 72 Golf Course and 9 Hole Executive Course Cha m p i on s h i p Cour s e par 72 18 HOLE S OF GOLF WITH CART Monday-Friday ......... $24.00($18 after 2p m )Saturday & Sunday ... $27.00($18 after 2p m ) Execut i ve Cour s e INCLUDE S GOLF CART 9-Holes.................................... $8.00 18-Holes................................. $12.00 EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK Tee times can be scheduled 3 days in advance.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Fire inspires priest to transform ministryBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com It happened more than a decade ago, but the Rev. Garry Welsh said the event was a turning point in his life as a priest. “I woke one night to the sound of wood burning,” recalled Welsh, then pastor of St. Ludger Catholic Church, a parish in the small town of Creighton, Neb. “The rectory caught on fire.” Welsh descended from his second-floor bedroom to search out the source of the fire. “I saw a kind of a glow at the end of the hallway, and when I walked down toward it, I discovered the kitchen was on fire,” he said. The black smoke was so thick that Welsh became disoriented. He suffered burns on both of his hands and feet. “They tell me — I don’t remember much about the night — that I did walk across a floor that was on fire. It was a laminate floor, so it was hot and it burnt the bottom of my feet,” Welsh said. “I was in the hospital for quite a while. I had to learn how to walk again.” Investigators traced the cause of the fire to a candle that Welsh had left burning on the stove, he said. The rectory had just been renovated, and it and all of its contents were destroyed. Recovering from his injuries kept Welsh away from full-time ministry for quite some time. Now, however, he’s on loan to Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Land O’ Lakes. And despite the fire’s destructive nature, Welsh said it held lessons for him. “I think what it gave me, as I look back now, is that it gave me a better appreciation of the struggles people go through,” Welsh said. “I was in a wheelchair for quite a while. I think it made me understand (the impacts of) when people start to lose their mobility.” The experience gave him a greater appreciation of being able to do things independently and changed his perspective on life, people and the priesthood, he said. “It changed my outlook on ministry, entirely,” Welsh said. Before the fire, Welsh said he was a priest that was driven by a schedule. The experience of the fire, and recovering from it, however, softened and mellowed him. Welsh became more aware of the value of savoring the gifts that God bestows. “Before when I would visit with people, it was very much an in-and-out, I’ve got other things to do,” he said. “Now, I take more time. I’m more liable to sit with people and listen to people a little bit more.” Before the fire, Welsh said he was an ambitious priest. That changed, as well. “As a priest, I used to try to be the best,” he said. “I discovered that when I try to be the best, it’s all about me. What I try to do now is that I try to be the priest that people need today. So, when someone comes to me, my prayer always is: ‘What do you need from me as your priest, now?’ “That might be a listening ear. That might be some advice. It might be a pat on the back to say you’re OK. It might be that you need me to sit and listen to your joke and laugh at it, even if it’s bad.” Welsh said he asks himself: “What does this person, or these people, or this group – what do they need from me, now?” “They don’t need me to be the best priest. They need me to be their priest, their priest who loves them,” he said. Welsh was born in England to Scottish parents, but grew up in Ireland. He came to the United States in 1998, and was ordained three years later in Nebraska. Welsh said spiritual needs are universal, to know that spiritually, they’re loved. When fellow priests and brothers are struggling, Welsh reminds them that “we make priesthood difficult because we think it’s about doing,” he said. “It’s more about being.” “When we’re ordained, we’re ordained to be in the image of Christ. And we forget that and we’re lost in our own image,” Welsh said. “And we get disappointed, and the people get disappointed. We don’t get fulfilled, and the people don’t get fulfilled. And we all end up in this bad place.” Instead it should be more about the image of Christ. “What did Christ instruct us to do?” Welsh said. “He said, ‘Love one another, as I have loved you.’” “That’s the key, I think, to all faith,” he said. “No matter what we do, we have to do it with love. People will respond to love.” When Welsh officiates the mass, he begins with a reminder that those present are on a journey together. As such, they are bound to stumble and fall. But they are there to help each other and to continue together on the journey, he said. When he prepares his homilies, he consults a number of sources and draws on his personal experiences. “As a priest, I struggle like you struggle,” Welsh said. “I have good days and bad days. I have high moments and low moments. We’re journeying together.” When others hurt him, he said, he realizes he is unable to forgive them. “I ask God to forgive them,” he said. Like commentator Bill O’Reilly, he enjoys being pithy. He also recalls this bit of advice offered by a professor when Welsh was learning to write homilies: “In three minutes, you’ll move hearts. In 10 minutes, you’ll freeze butts.” Welsh, who has been an associate and a pastor at several churches in Nebraska, said he has never requested a particular assignment, trusting the Holy Spirit will lead him to the right place to use his skills. Currently, he is on loan to the Diocese of St. Petersburg, from the Archdiocese of Omaha. He’s not sure how long this assignment will last. “When I came down here, my archbishop said, ‘This is for three years.’ And, I said, ‘Well, let the Holy Spirit decide that.’” Father Garry Welsh is on loan to the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary in Land O’ Lakes. He says a fire that destroyed the rectory where he was living in Nebraska transformed his ministry. (Photo by B.C.

The more models you tour, the better opportunity to win!* MODELS OPEN DAILY OF NEW HOMES Government shutdown could soon victimize poor children, infantsBy Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com Lacy White followed the latest news from Washington, D.C. closely over the past few weeks as Congress and the President haggled over spending measures that led to a federal government shutdown. Not only was her husband a civilian contractor at MacDill Air Force Base who would lose his paycheck if a shutdown were to occur, but both were eight weeks into caring for an infant they’ve fostered since she was born, and were depending on the government to help pay for the baby’s needs. “This is a double whammy for us, and it’s frustrating,” the former Land O’ Lakes resident said. “We need the checks to help with the baby’s formula, and without those, we’d have to pay out of our own pockets. But if my husband is working without pay, too, then we really have to dig to get the money.” White receives support through WIC, the federal assistance program more formally known as the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. Individual states like Florida administer the program using federal dollars — money that is now missing because of the federal government’s inability to keep the financial coffers open. Communication between the government and WIC recipients has been nonexistent. Even visiting the website of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which runs the federal program, brings up a page telling visitors that “due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available.” So, White and others like her have to turn to the news. “As far as I have read, WIC is shut down, and we will no longer be getting her formula checks,” White said of her foster baby. “No one has contacted us. No one has let us know. We have to go by word of mouth.”But checks are continuing to be cut, even as federal dollars stop, said Deanna Krautner, a spokeswoman for Pasco County. She referred more detailed questions to the state level, who in a statement said Florida Department of Health “continues to monitor the situation in Washington, D.C., and the department will be able to continue WIC services for the foreseeable future.”When pressed further about where those dollars are coming from, Department of Health spokeswoman Denishia Sword said the state has put together temporary operating dollars, including reallocated federal funding, USDA contingency funds and infant formula rebates. Yet, those contingency funds won’t last long. Bruce Alexander, communications director with the USDA, told Forbes magazine that if the shutdown is not resolved before October ends, there may not be sufficient money to keep the program going. The USDA typically receives $7 billion to run programs like WIC nationally, but the program’s contingency fund is just $125 million — enough to run the program for six days. White’s family, luckily, has put money away for a rainy day, and only collects WIC because she has a foster baby. Yet, families that solely depend on WIC won’t have those options, and she fears children not just in the Tampa Bay area, but across the country, will suffer. “We would typically spend $100 a month on formula, and that’s just to feed her,” White said. “There are a lot of expenses involving children, and families who live in poverty would not be able to do this on their own.” If her family ran into problems, White said her church will be available to help. But there may be only so much charity groups can do — especially if so many families end up in need, said Thomas Mantz, chief executive of Feeding America Tampa Bay. While the organization does not necessarily provide the same services as WIC, if families have to suddenly pay for items like formula, they may have to make cuts in other areas — like food. “Any time there are challenges in the economic environment, one of the choices people will often make is the choice of food,” Mantz said. “They have to pay a medical bill, or they have to get their car running to get to work, or they have to pay for their lights or rent. Any time those choices have to be made, these folks have to go without food, and seek food assistance elsewhere.” Feeding America will move 40 million pounds of food in its 10-county service area this year, but that is still not enough, covering less than 50 percent of the need. And if the government shutdown continues, that will be even more assistance the group will have to be ready to supply. Congress and the President getting back on the same page couldn’t come too soon, White said. The government needs to get back to work, and start paying for these much-needed social programs. “My husband has to get up every day to go to work without a paycheck, yet these guys are up there still paying themselves while we are all just waiting,” White said. “Something needs to be done.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture website, which is the home for information on the federal government’s WIC program to help support women, infants and children, shows only an error page to anyone trying to visit. The federal government shutdown has created a potentially serious problem for poor families, who depend on government assistance to feed their children.

The cupcakes were later sold for $1 each, with proceeds benefitting the fight against breast cancer. (Photos by Michael Hinman) Just in time for Thanksgiving, Zoe Dutton, who works in accessories at Belk’s, painstakingly made these turkey cupcakes. Each cupcake took 15 minutes to create, and is a combination of caramel, pound cake and wheat sticks. Whenever you want a cupcake, be sure to look for your mummy. This cupcake, which helps celebrate Halloween (while raising money for breast cancer) was chosen as one of the most creative during the Belk’s employee cupcake contest last week. Swiftmud lowers taxes, cuts budget The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Southwest Florida Water Management District, the water usage governing agency commonly known as Swiftmud, has reduced its ad valorem taxes for the upcoming fiscal year. Swiftmud’s governing board adopted a millage rate of 0.3818 mills, down 2.8 percent from the previous year. One mill represents $1 of tax on every $1,000 of taxable property value. For example, a home appraised at $150,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption would be levied a Swiftmud tax of $38.18 for the coming year. The savings represent a $2.9 million overall reduction in how much Swiftmud will collect from property owners this year compared to last year. This year’s budget totals $170.8 million. That budget includes $95.8 million for capital and infrastructure as well as other projects. Those investments, after being leveraged with various financial partners, will rise to $138 million. It will be funded using money available from previous years as well as projects that have already been completed under budget or outright cancelled. Swiftmud’s district encompasses roughly 10,000 square miles in all or part of 16 counties in the state, according to the agency’s website. It serves a population of 4.7 million people. The state allows Swiftmud to levy up to 1 mill, but the agency actually collects about a third of that with the current budget. buy a $300 gift car dand get a$7500gift card buy a $500 gift cardand get a$12500gift card buy a $100 gift cardand get a$2000gift card cameo cameo€ hair € nails € massage € facials € full body waxing € spa packages € hair extensions € keratin € Jane Iredale make-up and Der malogica Skin Care1817 collier parkway, lutz cameosalonspa.com salon and spa 813 948 7411 BRAS FOR A CAUSE Fightagainst Breast CancerDonate a new or gently used bra and receive a $10 spa voucher!1 voucher per guestpink hair extensions......$10-$15 pink wall ribbons....................$1All proceeds raised will be donated to LifePath Hospice.

Dale Mabry Hwy. But her husband stood strong. Choosing to have the baby has affected her cancer treatment and the baby’s birth date. “I had a total, radical modified mastectomy,” she said, noting it had to be done in the second trimester of her pregnancy. She has also undergone four sets of chemotherapy, where she received strange looks from people when they saw a pregnant woman on her way to treatments. While both Boothe and her husband had doubts, experts told her the type of chemotherapy she received during her pregnancy would not harm the baby. She had to have her baby delivered at around 33 weeks, instead of the typical 40, in order for her to stay on track for her treatments. That early delivery could cause complications, but Boothe said his development is now in God’s hands. Yet, her faith hasn’t always been this rock-solid. Boothe struggled with it after her mother, Donna Mullens, was struck by cancer for a second time. “I kind of had a falling out with the Lord when my mom was sick,” Boothe said. She was a teenager when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer the first time. “When she got sick the first time, she didn’t even want to tell me because she didn’t want me to get upset and she didn’t want to hurt me,” Boothe said.Her mother’s cancer returned in 2007, and by then Boothe had married and moved to Hawaii with her husband. Her parents had planned to visit her there, but had to cancel the trip when her mom got her diagnosis.Instead, Boothe returned to Lutz to help her mother. “She had a rough time,” Boothe said. “It was hard for me to watch her go through that.” After Mullens recovered once again, Boothe got involved in Relay for Life. She also became heavily involved in the Land O’ Lakes Sun Rays Concert for a Cure. And now friends are getting together to raise money for Boothe with the Kicking Cancer for Ashley fundraiser. The event takes place on Oct. 12 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Police Grounds, at the corner of Bell Lake Road and Land O’ Lakes Boulevard. If anyone deserves help, it’s Boothe, Fontanez said. “When she found out that I had a (Relay for Life) team, she baked her heart out,” Fontanez said. “She went ahead and she did seven or eight cakes. She did chocolate-covered strawberries, candies, cookies.” In fact, Boothe made so many goodies that they were giving them away at the end of the event. “She’s done baking every year. She’s been on our team for five years,” Fontanez said. While Boothe is grateful for the help, she wishes she were on the giving, rather than the receiving, end. “I want to be independent. I want to do it on my own,” she said. “This time, I just can’t. I don’t have the resources. I don’t have the money. I don’t have the energy.” Boothe is humbled by the support that others are showing her. The Fit Body Boot Camp is having a fundraising event for her with a two-week boot camp pass to its gym for a $33 donation. A personal trainer there also will match the money raised up to $3,000, and is giving away prizes to existing or new clients that participate in the fundraiser. Firefighter Charities of Pasco Inc. and the fire chief are also helping. “We are now allowed to wear pink duty shirts as we work,” said Jesus “J.J.” Martinez, president of the charitable organization. “The money we raise from the shirts will be going to Kicking Cancer for Ashley.” Boothe said she is in awe by the kindness of others. “So many people are so giving. All of these businesses that are willing to donate, I’m just very grateful,” she said.813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 14 Want to help?Those wishing to help Ashley Boothe can make contributions at Ucaring.com/ashleyboothe or to the Ashley Gayle Boothe Benefit Trust Account at any Chase BankIf you goThe Kicking Cancer for AshleyFundraiser is on Oct. 12 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Police grounds, at the corner of Bell Lake Road and Land O’ Lakes Boulevard.

Admission is $5 and proceeds will benefit Ashley Boothe.county — which officials are calling “Gateway Crossings” — had just 30,500 residents, compared to the nearly 142,000 on the western side. In 2010, Gateway Crossings expanded to a little less than 120,000, a jump of 293 percent, while the western side grew just 28 percent to 182,000. By 2025, Gateway Crossings is expected to grow to 214,000 people compared to 194,000 on the western side, according to numbers provided by Pasco County officials.Already, 94 percent of Pasco’s population resides in the unincorporated areas. “If the Pasco County Commission were a city commission, we would be the 12th largest city in the state,” Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said at the chamber meeting. “It’s an interesting challenge for us as commissioners as we have to act like a city commission, while other commissions like the one in Pinellas actually controls very little with so many incorporated areas there.” Pasco is one of the fastest growing areas in the state, but still exports 90,000 people a day to Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, while importing just 40,000. “If we could get people to work here in the county, we could bring our wages up,” Kendrick said. To make that growth work, planning had to start a long time ago, and the county is getting its act together, Starkey said. One of the first major issues the commission had to address once Starkey arrived was the permitting process, which she described as a “disaster.” “We were known as a difficult place to do business,” Starkey said. “We still are, but we are working on that.” Permitting has been streamlined, removing a lot of red tape that existed before, with the hopes that smart growth will be encouraged by the private sector. That does mean, however, building up rather than out. Density is going to be key, but Pasco will need the infrastructure to support it. Already, key areas like U.S. 41 and the Suncoast Parkway junctions with State Roads 54 and 52 have more than 2 million people living within a 40-minute drive time. Wiregrass Ranch already is not far behind with 1.92 million people within a couple gallons of gas. Yet, Pasco still wants to keep its community spirit with aspects like sidewalks and neighborhoods. Yet, some traffic arteries must remain arteries. “State Road 54 will not be a main street,” Kendrick said. “It will not be walkable, ever.” Communities are springing up on either side of State Road 54, which are pedestrianfriendly, but the county is going to need a much expanded road system to carry the incoming population and avoid traffic gridlock. “You can see the numbers coming into the area, and they are not going to fit on (State Road) 54,” Starkey said. “You could walk faster.” The county, however, will have to find ways to pay for it. Property taxes already are lower than 60 other counties in the state, Kendrick said, and the recent failure of the additional gas tax by the county commission is going to make it nearly impossible to build more roads in the foreseeable future. “We’ve had to build $8 million out of the budget to fund roads, and we are going to have to do something to fill that gap,” Starkey said. “It’s going to be a challenge.” Representatives from the Urban Land Institute, which is helping Pasco County officials with long-range economic development plans, are visiting this week to follow up on recommendations made five years ago. Further suggestions on how to enhance and support growth in the county will be made in the coming months. “There are only about 5,000 hot air balloonists in the United States,” Warren said, and while they’re spread out around the country, their shared interest in aviation makes them a tight-knit community. Chuck Norris, a flight instructor at the Tampa North Flight Center, said aviation enthusiasts will have a chance to see some interesting aircraft. They can also purchase rides on a 1942 Boeing Steerman. Norris is excited about the event. “This airport has been a very sleepy airport for years. We want to wake it up,” he said. Organizers intend to make this an annual event, Warren said. In fact, planning for that already has begun, she said. If you go Festival of Flight, a festival celebrating aviation, will make its debut Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 at the Tampa North Aeropark, 4241 Birdsong Blvd., in Lutz. There will be hot air balloons, interesting aircraft, kite flying and vendors. Admission is free.

The new plate, which features two chairs on a beach — one big and one small — will only become available if 1,000 pre-order vouchers are purchased by June 1, 2015. Once that goal of 1,000 vouchers has been met, production of the plates would begin. The plates will not only raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters, but it also will create statewide awareness of the organization, according to leaders of the nonprofit. “We invite community members to take their support on the road and buy their plates today to help generate much-needed revenue to expand mentoring opportunities for children in Florida,” said Jody Clifford, chief executive of the statewide organization, in a release. The statewide group was organized in 1995 and assists the 13 regional agencies in Florida. The goal is to help provide children with long-term, nurturing, one-to-one mentoring relationships with caring adults to change the lives of children for the better. Vouchers will be available at local county tax collector’s offices for the regular registration fee plus a $25 additional payment. For more information on the license plates, or how to become involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters, visit the state organization’s website at www.BBBSFlorida.org. Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida has less than two years to get 1,000 pre-orders of a new specialty license plate before the state can begin production. State officials approved the plate in October. (Image provided)By Kim Salerno Spec i al to The Laker/Lutz News She’s not just a dog to you. She’s your sounding board, your faithful sidekick, and your pride and joy. She’s a bona fide family member. You’ll do anything to keep her out of harm’s way. But when it comes to playtime, are you protecting her too much? As pet parents, we want the absolute best for our canine kids. But just like anxious human parents, we can sometimes fall into the trap of overprotecting our dogs as they play, especially if they’re on the small side. Helicopter pet parents undoubtedly mean well, but they aren’t necessarily doing what’s best for their dog. In fact, the results can be detrimental, and possibly even dangerous.Expert dog trainer and animal behaviorist Elsa Larsen of MyWonderfulDog.net, notes that while it’s perfectly appropriate in some situations to adopt protective behaviors, when taken to extremes or done at the wrong time, actions like avoiding socialization, keeping your dog on a short leash, or picking up or carrying your dog can actually decrease their confidence and set her up for fearful, aggressive or defensive behavior.Keeping your dog firmly leashed in public places is always a wise idea. However, tightening the leash during doggie meet-and-greets or play dates can backfire. This is especially true at dog parks, where there are often many unrestrained dogs around.“Dogs have an instinctive ‘fight-or-flight’ response to threatening situations,” Larsen notes. “If you have a dog on a leash, and all of a sudden he’s surrounded by a bunch of dogs off leash, he may act defensive because his opportunity to flee has been taken away.”Larsen advises that if your dog is in imminent danger, picking him up may be the safest possible thing to do. However, picking up your dog to help him avoid social discomfort or anxiety could cause more problems than it solves. It can reinforce anxiety, and may even exacerbate existing behavioral issues. If your dog is a resource guarder and sees you as one of his most important resources, holding him close while you’re around other dogs may cause him to try and aggressively “guard” you from them. Small dogs inspire our best protective natures, and toting your little gal around may seem like a kind gesture, and a great way for you to be close. But Larsen warns that constantly carrying your dog can actually do more harm than good.“I call it Little Dog Syndrome,” she explains. “Pet parents don’t feel comfortable with their little dog navigating through the world on their own four feet. But carrying your dog everywhere does him a great disservice because he doesn’t get a chance to be a dog. You may, in fact, be creating a dog who’s antisocial and doesn’t have good skills meeting and greeting other dogs.”So how do you know when to step in, and when to hang back and play it cool? Larsen stresses that there’s no simple, straightforward answer. Every dog is an individual and every situation is unique. But she does offer some tried-andtrue tips for ensuring that your pup is happy and safe while he plays.  Whenever possible, lose the leash during greetings and playtime. If your dog feels threatened and can’t run because she’s tethered to the leash, her only option is to fight.  Periodically interrupt playtime. This keeps all the dogs from getting fatigued and overexcited. Larsen suggests watching your dog carefully after a play pause. If she seems relaxed and eager to return to the group, it’s a good sign that she’s enjoying herself and feeling confident.  Watch everyday playing for signs of overexcitement, like excessive barking, rough play, bullying, challenging stances, or even sneezing. If your dog is being threatened in any way, cries out in pain, or seems to always end up on the bottom of the pack, playtime’s over. If you give your pooch some freedom to be her own wonderful self and the opportunity to face challenges on her own, you’ll be rewarded with a dog that’s more confident, more social and much happier. So land the ‘copter, and head out to play! —Kim Salerno is the president and founder of TripsWithPets.com, and is an expert in the field of pet travel.

It is timeless, as in 2000 years ago. Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Jay A. Nelson, DMD, has been helping patients in the area solve their dental problems for 25 years and saw the need to add dental sleep medicine to his list of services. He has years of successful experience working in collaboration with medical doctors to provide patients with an alternative to the obtrusive Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy. Dr. Nelson has fitted more than a hundred patients suffering from sleep apnea with a dental appliance that fits over the teeth much like a retainer. The appliance moves the jaw forward and opens the airway during sleep. The result is an immediate and dramatic reduction in snoring (in many cases, snoring stops completely) „ which is often a relief to the patients bed partner who complains that their sleep too is interrupted by their partners snoring. But more importantly, the open airway created by the dental appliance allows the patient to sleep through the night and awaken fully rested. There is nothing more important to maintaining good health and an energetic, productive day than a restful nights sleep,Ž said Dr. Nelson from his office on S.R. 54 in Lutz. Our body needs a continuous flow of oxygen to sleep restfully,Ž he continues. It is essential that our brain and body reboot every night by getting enough sleep. If we dont reboot, lack of sleep impacts every aspect of our health, including weight gain, high blood pressure, memory loss and mental health.Ž Dr. Nelson is one of the areas few dentists to be certified in treating sleep breathing disorders in collaboration with your physician. His office recently received a three-year accreditation from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, which required his practice to meet or exceed all standards for professional patient care, including continuing education for his staff and meeting standards for safety, customer service and patient follow-up. Scientific studies have determined that dental sleep therapy is an effective alternative to CPAP therapy „ which uses a bedside machine that pumps air into a patients nose and mouth throughout the night. Many people stop using their CPAP machine because they find its mask uncomfortable and the machine itself loud and disruptive to their bed partner,Ž said Dr. Nelson. Those people are desperate to find an alternative that they can tolerate to help them sleep through the night and to stop snoring.Ž Dr. Nelson fits his patients with mouthguard-like retainers worn only during sleep. These retainers easily and painlessly snap over a patients top and bottom teeth.With the retainers in place, they prevent the airway from collapsing by holding the tongue in place and moving the jaw forward. It typically takes a month for the retainers to be adjusted to a patients mouth. After the desired effect is reached, the patient does nothing more than pop the appliance in at night and rinse it off and store it away in the morning in a small carrying case.Diane is a local businesswoman in her 50s who was fitted with an oral appliance by Dr. Nelson six months ago. I no longer snore and sleep better than I have in years,Ž said Diane. I never realized what a huge difference a good night sleep would have on how I felt. My energy level is the best its been in years, and I wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new day.Ž The National Sleep Foundation reports that more than 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders today, and projects that number will more than double in 30 years as our population continues to age. While these numbers are astounding, more astonishing is the number of people who are either unaware that they have a sleep disorder, or believe there is nothing they can do to treat it if they cannot tolerate CPAP treatment. Its important that folks know there is an alternative to CPAP that is effective and affordable,Ž said Dr. Nelson. We have helped so many people who find our oral appliances comfortable, easy to take in and out and convenient for travel. Our goal is to help people live longer by improving the quality of their sleep. Nothing is more important than sleep for good physical and mental health, and theres no reason that anyone needs to suffer from snoring and sleep disordersŽ.Dr. Jay Nelson Treats Sleep Apnea with Nonintrusive Dental RetainerSTOP SNORING AND SLEEP SOUNDLY THROUGH THE NIGHT NelsonDentistryand Dental Sleep Medicine www.SleepBetterFlorida.com www.NelsonDentistry.com (813) 235-0315 CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 17

If youre 40 or older, chances are that you have been heeding the American Cancer Societys recommendation for annual breast screenings. For some women, one of the most difficult aspects of getting a mammogram isnt the test itself … its remembering to schedule it each year and finding a convenient time and location to do so. Luckily, for Lutz area residents, breast imaging services are now available at The Breast Center, a division of Imaging Services at St. Josephs Hospital-North. A sister facility to the Shimberg Breast Center at St. Josephs Womens Hospital in Tampa, The Breast Center has accreditation from the American College of Radiology,Ž said Vikki ONeal, BS,RT(R)(M)(CT)(QM), manager of imaging services. We offer a full range of high-quality imaging and breast biopsy services close to home.Ž American College of Radiology DesignationTo achieve the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation, weve completed a rigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally-accepted standards of care,Ž said ONeal. At St. Josephs Hospital-North we are committed to the highest standard of care, in addition to customer service. Board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists oversee the accreditation process.Ž Responding to customer requests, The Breast Center now offers evening and weekend availability for screening mammograms. This makes it even more convenient to schedule the annual appointment. Breast Imaging Services We understand that breast imaging is very important to women and can be very stressful,Ž said ONeal. Our staff is committed to helping patients through the breast screening process.Ž Services at The Breast Center at St. Josephs Hospital-North include: €Digital mammography €Breast MRI €Breast ultrasound €Diagnostic and screening mammography A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast that can detect a tumor or mass even before it can be felt or seen. Sometimes, a mammogram comes back with an abnormality on the image. As much as 80 percent of irregularities found on a mammogram are not cancerous. However, it is critical that you have the abnormality looked at again„usually with a few more mammogram images followed by a breast ultrasound if needed. An ultrasound can help to detect if a mass is filled with fluid (cyst) or solid (benign or malignant tumor). After the ultrasound, your radiologist may recommend a breast biopsy. The Breast Center offers minimally invasive breast biopsies, including stereotactic ultrasound-guided biopsies and MRIguided breast biopsies. The radiologist inserts a small, hollow needle into the area of abnormality using ultrasound and/or mammograms, and/or MRI to guide the radiologist's needle into the suspected lesion. A sample of cells is sent to the pathologist to determine if they are cancerous. In most cases, breast masses are not usually cancer, but it is important to rule out the possibility. A mammogram should be number one on every womans list after turning 40. Its the best method to detect breast cancer. Specially trained eyes can now see cancer in its earliest stages when its easiest to treat,Ž said ONeal. So make your annual appointment as soon as possible.Ž 4211 Van Dyke Road  Lutz StJosephsNorth.or g Living Well Convenient Breast Screening Services for the Lutz Community

But few probably expected one of those changes would be to become accustomed to winning. And winning a lot. With just three games remaining — including Tuesday’s late matchup with district-leading Fivay — the Sunlake Seahawks are 12-5, producing the first winning season in school history, and chalking up the most wins in school history as well. Ask the players, and they’ll point toward first-year coach Deann Newton as the reason for the change. But ask Newton, and she points right back at the players. “The whole team has really come together,” Newton said. “They like each other, which is good anytime. But these girls really get along well, and that has really helped with our team chemistry.” Newton joined the Seahawks after a 10year break from coaching. Her most recent job before that was with Mitchell High School, where she took a 17-9 team into the playoffs, knocked off a heavily favored Lakeland High School in the first round, and then lost to eventual state champion Plant High School in four sets in the regional semifinals. She returned to a sport that has changed a lot (primarily, the implementation of rally scoring, which allows points to be scored on every serve). The higher point totals means a lot more scoreboard watching for many, but not for the Seahawks. “I tell my girls all the time not to even look at the scoreboard,” Newton said. “It doesn’t even matter. We have to play every point like it’s the last point of the game. Every ball, every serve, we have to focus on each one at a time.” The Seahawks have developed a strong core of players in recent seasons, but got some extra help this year with four transfers, including Sunlake’s new team captain, Malika Saffore. The Bishop McLaughlin High School transplant is one of the leaders in digs with 157, and has more than 400 assists. Other transfers this year included junior outside hitter Shelby Stratton from Land O’ Lakes Christian High School, senior outside hitter Maeghan O’Fray from Ocala, and junior outside hitter Sara Nafziger, who moved to Florida last summer. Saffore, who actually played on Sunlake’s varsity team as a freshman, says she returned to a much different Seahawks team for her senior year.“There is a much more excitement than I ever remember on this team before,” Saffore said. This stems from the need for everyone to stay focused and contribute, because this is a team that doesn’t operate with star players.“I’m a senior, and I’m the captain, but I’m really just one of 12 girls on this team,” Saffore said. “We always work as a team, and we always motivate each other as a team. And this year, we have so much talent. We keep looking at that talent, and are getting a hint of what we can accomplish.” The season is almost over, and while Sunlake has been successful on the court, they know that once the playoffs begins, everyone starts back at the beginning. And a loss there means the season is over. But just as Newton directs her players to focus on just one point at a time, she asks them to focus on the games the same way. “We don’t think one game is more important than another because every game is important,” Saffore said. “Each game has to turn into a win, and we can’t take anything for granted.” Crowds have started to grow for Sunlake home games as more and more people start to hear about the success the Seahawks are having on the court. But Newton wants to see the bleachers filled, because the energy of the crowd fuels her girls even more. “That’s probably one of the most disappointing things I’ve noticed since coming back, it’s the size of crowds for volleyball games at our school and other schools,” Newton said. “I’m 36, I’m not that old, but when I played, we packed the gym.” People will really start to come as the team improves, and for now, the Seahawks are getting tremendous support from its core of parents and students who make it a point to be at every Sunlake volleyball game. And they shouldn’t miss a thing, because it only gets more exciting from here. “Our district is so tight right now,” Newton said. “The top five teams are all strong teams, and anyone can knock anybody off. We’re going to have to play our game the whole time to really make it through to the finals. That’s for sure.” Seahawks coach Deann Newton says it’s just as important for the team to focus on needs outside the team — like raising awareness for breast cancer — as it is to focus on each game. Sunlake has been able to do both, hitting their way into a 12-5 record so far this season.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Mike Matthew Special to The Laker / Lutz NewsAlicia Lafarga didnt start out as a teacher, but after retiring from her desk job, she knew that was the only thing she wanted to do. She moved from Miami to Tampa two years ago to be near her daughter and began looking for an opportunity that would enable her to have the greatest impact teaching children. She found that with Tutor Doctor. Alicia opened her Tutor Doctor franchise one year ago. Its a wonderful experience after sitting behind a desk for 40 years,Ž says Alicia. Over the course of her career she worked with school boards and the county in Miami. These experiences strengthened her desire to do something with children after she retired. Tutor Doctor provides in-home tutoring for students of all ages, from kindergarten to senior citizens. Its a great company to work with,Ž says Alicia. They provide a lot of support to both owners and tutors which really helps us to provide the very best tutoring experience to our clients.ŽAlicia provides a free consultation to anyone interested in tutoring. The purpose of the consultation is two-fold. First, she talks with the parents to fully understand their concerns and expectations. The majority of her time is spent talking with the student. This information will help her to find the best tutor for the child.We want to match the student with the right tutor,Ž she explains. The tutor must have the necessary subject-matter skills. We also try to take into account any special interests or abilities the student has, such as a love of sports, and try to find a tutor with similar interests and abilities.Ž Every tutoring lesson plan is customized around the students school curriculum. Parents are kept up-to-date regarding their childs progress with followup notes and assessments after every tutoring session. We have to be able to make a difference for every student,Ž says Alicia. Tutoring helps students improve their grades and testtaking abilities, but the greatest reward is in the noticeable improvement in the childs self-confidence. It is the students rise in confidence that makes a big difference and leads to benefits in other areas of their life,Ž says Alicia. Tutoring works.Ž Alicia currently has 50 tutors working with her. All of her tutors are certified teachers or graduate school students with teaching experience. She is always looking for new tutors with experience and a passion to support students and their community. Tutoring is all about integrity,Ž says Alicia. We never lie to the client or try to sell them on the tutoring process. We also resolve any personality issues between the student and tutor immediately. This is a relationship-based experience, and we want everyone to be happy with the tutoring process.Ž To sum up the Tutor Doctor difference in one sentence Alicia says, We provide one-on-one individualized instruction on all subjects in their own home and at their convenience.Ž Learning doesnt have to be a struggle. Call Alicia for a free consultation. Mention this article and youll also receive two hours of free tutoring.Improving student confidence and ability one child at a time Alicia Lafarga Tutor Doctor Contact Alicia at: 813-506-0438 or alafarga@tutordoctor.com www.loveyourtutor.com CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 21 PROMPT SAME DELIVERY OR NEXT DAY DELIVERY € FLAT-RATE PRICING € NO HIDDEN COSTS RECYCLING PROGRAMSConcrete, Wood, Paper & Tires Land O Lakes Lutz Odessa, Keystone Volunteer Fire Dept.

The runners were optimistic and prepared for whatever they had to face on the various courses. Unfortunately, nobody was prepared for Coach Kris Keppel’s recent pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Now the man who hadn’t missed a competition in 20 years of coaching has been forced to miss practices and meets, leaving the team stunned and concerned. “I was just shocked, and I think the rest of the team was, too,” said Tyler Stahl, one of the team’s top runners. “ You feel like if you’ve been through something like this before — like with Steven — there’s no way it could happen again.” “Steven” is Steven Barnebei, a cross-country athlete who was diagnosed with brain cancer in his junior season. After emergency surgery and dozens of radiation doses, Barnebei has returned to the sport in his senior year with a cancer-free diagnosis and a determination to compete at a high level. That experience was emotionally taxing for the team last year. And now, after rallying around their teammate, the runners now have to rally around their coach. Since the diagnosis, it’s the experienced runners who have stepped up to lead the team. Stahl and Travis Nichols — seniors, team captains and state qualifiers last year — are getting a lot of support from parents and Rick Moody, a friend of Keppel’s with experience coaching Olympic athletes. But they know that to keep things running smoothly, they have to demonstrate real leadership both on and off the courses. “We’ve had to really step up in keeping our team focused on post-season goals, and keeping them from being discouraged from the setbacks,” Nichols said. That means coaching teammates in practice and keeping them focused and upbeat during events. Keppel still guides the team by sending out workouts and goal times via email, and the team leaders know that everyone wants to succeed for him. “The team is staying pretty focused and we just keep saying that they need to work hard and perform well for coach,” Stahl said. Working hard and performing well was commonplace when Keppel was at every practice and competition, and it’s carrying over in his absence: The team placed third in the 2013 Gator Invitational Oct. 5 at Crews Lake Park. At the event, the top times were nearly dominated by Land O’ Lakes runners. Nichols took first place, Stahl took third and teammate Jake Poore finished fourth. All three broke the 17-minute mark easily. Both Stahl and Nichols share optimism for the rest of the year, and look forward to having their coach back as soon as possible. And while it might seem difficult to keep running and stay focused while missing their leader, nobody is letting up or lowering their goals because Coach Keppel isn’t able to be there right now. In fact, Stahl said he’s been able to improve his concentration in the face of the team’s recent adversity. “I think it is actually easier to focus on running after hearing about” Keppel’s diagnosis, Stahl said. “I have more of an incentive to work hard and do well than before. I want to make him proud.” Kris Keppel 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 PREP SPORTS BOARD

Areas surrounding Port Richey and New Port Richey have always been the focus of activity thanks to their proximity to Pinellas County. But by 2025, that could all change. The southern portion of Pasco County, which as late as 1990 had population rivaling only the northern rural parts of the county, will not only overtake the New Port Richey area, but will become the most populous in Pasco. The area, which includes Wesley Chapel and Wiregrass Ranch, could reach as high as 309,000 people by 2040, putting Pasco on the path to 1 million residents. And the county will have to be ready. We have a big responsibility in the Tampa Bay area, Melanie Kendrick, senior planner in Pasco Countys economic development department, told members of the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce late last month. As companies are looking to come to this area, and companies in Hillsborough and Pinellas are expanding, they dont have the room. And great cities grow north.

The Festival of Flight, presented by American Balloons and Tampa North Flight Center, will feature hot air balloons, kite-flying demonstrations and aircraft ranging from vintage World War II airplanes to stateof-the art flying machines. Festivities begin at 7 a.m. on Oct. 19, with a hot air balloon launch and wrap up that day with a night hot air balloon glow at Tampa North Aeropark, 4241 Birdsong Blvd. in Lutz. Activities will resume at 7 a.m. on Oct. 20, with another hot air balloon launch and activities will conclude around noon. Those wanting to watch the balloon launches are advised to arrive early and should bring chairs to sit on, according to the events website. There will be balloons flying in and out, said Jessica Warren of American Balloons, a company based at the flight center. Besides the hot air balloons and airplanes, Kiting Tampa Bay will also be there flying kites. And children will be able to make kites, Warren said. Other plans that are pending include paratroopers dropping in and tethered balloon rides, Warren said. The event celebrates the renovation of the private airport and the grand opening of The Happy Hangar caf. Various vendors will also be there, offering wares for sale or dispensing information about their businesses. Live music is planned, too. Weve been trying to bring the balloon festival in here for a really long time, Warren said. We really need something local. We want to share our love of aviation. The Pasco County area is fortunate to have hot air balloon flights, Warren said. The only other place in Florida that offers hot air balloon rides is Orlando. Many people come from around the world to go for rides in her companys balloons. A hot air balloon operates over Land O Lakes. Festival of Flight, a free public event, makes its debut at Tampa North Aeropark on the weekend of Oct. 19-20.

Manionbcm ani on@cnewspubs.co mAshley Boothe has been engaged in a battle with breast cancer for the last seven months, but she wasnt just fighting it for herself. The Wesley Chapel woman was also battling for her unborn child. On Oct. 4, at 10:17 a.m., she won part of the fight. She delivered her son, Scott Gregory Booth III. He weighed 4 pounds, 8 ounces, and was 18.5 inches long. Mom and dad and everything is fine, said Lilly Fontanez, a family friend, shortly after the babys birth. But the little boys birth was hardly a sure thing. When Boothe was just a couple weeks into her pregnancy, she found a lump in her left breast. I was putting lotion on to prevent stretch marks and I felt it. It was like, Thats weird, the 26year-old said. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had to make a decision. The doctor had informed her that her pregnancy was still in the early term and she could have an abortion. Boothe, however, was determined to have the baby. I was like, That word is not in my vocabulary. Its not an option. God didnt give me this baby for me to terminate him. Boothe, 26, said she made that decision even before she talked to the experts at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute who told her they could work around her pregnancy. The decision still carried increased concerns about her health and about the pregnancy. So, Booth told her husband Scott she would understand if he couldnt support her decision. I gave him an out card, Boothe said. He said, Are you kidding me? Youre crazy. Im not going anywhere. Boothe made the overture, she said, because she understands that some people just arent built to handle these kinds of challenges. They cant, Boothe said. Its not that theyre not a strong person and its not that theyre not a good person. They just cant bear to see people go through something like that.

By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comIt takes more than tax incentives and good schools for kids to attract the manufacturing industry to Pasco County. Its going to take a solid workforce base already living here. And thats where programs like the engineering academy at schools like River Ridge High School come into play. The only program of its kind in Pasco County, these engineering students are learning about the ever-evolving manufacturing industry one that more and more requires homegrown highly skilled labor to take on complex jobs. Many times, kids dont have a clue what they want to do when they graduate from high school, said Bryan Kamm, director of public and government relations for Bauer Foundation Corp. in Odessa. And when they do, they still dont have the experience they need when they graduate from college. Here were trying to bridge that gap. The doors of Bauer Foundation Corp., a company that specializes in building foundations and equipment, were opened to students around the area last week as part of National Manufacturing Day. PascoHernando Community College organized this years tours, providing an in-the-field look at industry to more than 160 students in the River Ridge program as well as 100 more from Nature Coast Technical High School and Hernando Robotics Club. The River Ridge program pulls in students from all over the county, and continues to grow, said former school board member and current Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. If you stay in engineering, you have the highest chance of anybody to get a job, Starkey told some of the students during the Bauer Foundation Corp. visit. Whether you go on to college, or you just want to get a job after high school, you will get the highest pay and have the most opportunities. That, to me, is why engineering is so important. It will help bring American jobs back from overseas, and bring stability to our economy. Manufacturing jobs have remained flat year-over-year in Florida, according to the U.S. Department of Labors Bureau of Labor Statistics for August. The Tampa Bay region, which Pasco County is a part of, has actually witnessed manufacturing jobs drop 3 percent since last year. Yet, some 600,000 manufacturing jobs across the country remained unfilled because of the gaps between the job requirements and the skills of those who are applying for them, according to PHCC. Many young people, especially those under 25, arent even considering manufacturing jobs in their future. Thats despite the fact that manufacturing salaries are typically 19 percent higher than other jobs, according to a report from The Manufacturing Institute. The national trend is for salaries and benefits averaging at just under $79,000, while non-manufacturing jobs pay a little more than $66,000. Manufacturing jobs are also more likely to have benefits 78 percent offer health care, for example compared to non-manufacturing jobs, which only 54 percent offer similar benefits, according to the study. Pasco County offers a wide range of manufacturing opportunities through 320 different facilities, according to the Pasco Hernando Workforce Board. That includes 3,100 jobs in highly technical advanced fields in pharmaceutical packaging, aerospace, military and defense manufacturing, as well as the manufacturing of baking equipment, and storm and lightning detectors. The county also offers thermoforming jobs, where plastic is heated and shaped into different products. Bauer Foundation focuses on the construction of building foundations, and developing the equipment that creates it. A division of the German-based Bauer Group, the Pasco company employs up to 80 people at its Odessa site, but has more than 200 people working in construction sites across the Southeast. Bauer offers an apprenticeship program that allows high school students to apply for what becomes a job complementing their schoolwork. It introduces jobs that students may not even had known existed before, and helps create the local workforce manufacturing companies like Bauer needs. Were a very highly technical and skilled company from Germany, and when someone comes in the door and applies, generally they dont have the skills they need to work for us, Bauers Kamm said. There ends up being this learning curve, where over a long period of time, they can come up to speed. And they can do that while still going to school. Bauer typically takes in four students each year for its summer orientation program, a six-week program that is ultimately a long-term job interview. The best candidates from that group are offered on-the-job training that they can do during their junior and senior years, and while they continue their education. And if they choose a local school, like PHCC, Bauer also pays their tuition.For more information on National Manufacturing Day and how to pursue a job in the manufacturing industry, visit mfgday.com. 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 2 Restaurant Open to the PublicTee Times: 352-588-545410641 Old Tampa Bay Drive San Antonio, FL 33576 (1/4 mile west of I-75 on SR 52) Featuring: 18 Hole Par 72 Golf Course and 9 Hole Executive Course Championship Cour se par 7218 HOLES OF GOLF WITH CART Monday-Friday ......... $24.00($18 after 2pm)Saturday & Sunday ... $27.00($18 after 2pm) Executive Cour seINCLUDES GOLF CART 9-Holes.................................... $8.00 18-Holes ................................. $12.00 EVER Y DAY OF THE WEEK Tee times can be scheduled 3 days in advance.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comIt happened more than a decade ago, but the Rev. Garry Welsh said the event was a turning point in his life as a priest. I woke one night to the sound of wood burning, recalled Welsh, then pastor of St. Ludger Catholic Church, a parish in the small town of Creighton, Neb. The rectory caught on fire. Welsh descended from his second-floor bedroom to search out the source of the fire. I saw a kind of a glow at the end of the hallway, and when I walked down toward it, I discovered the kitchen was on fire, he said. The black smoke was so thick that Welsh became disoriented. He suffered burns on both of his hands and feet. They tell me I dont remember much about the night that I did walk across a floor that was on fire. It was a laminate floor, so it was hot and it burnt the bottom of my feet, Welsh said. I was in the hospital for quite a while. I had to learn how to walk again. Investigators traced the cause of the fire to a candle that Welsh had left burning on the stove, he said. The rectory had just been renovated, and it and all of its contents were destroyed. Recovering from his injuries kept Welsh away from full-time ministry for quite some time. Now, however, hes on loan to Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Land O Lakes. And despite the fires destructive nature, Welsh said it held lessons for him. I think what it gave me, as I look back now, is that it gave me a better appreciation of the struggles people go through, Welsh said. I was in a wheelchair for quite a while. I think it made me understand (the impacts of) when people start to lose their mobility. The experience gave him a greater appreciation of being able to do things independently and changed his perspective on life, people and the priesthood, he said. It changed my outlook on ministry, entirely, Welsh said. Before the fire, Welsh said he was a priest that was driven by a schedule. The experience of the fire, and recovering from it, however, softened and mellowed him. Welsh became more aware of the value of savoring the gifts that God bestows. Before when I would visit with people, it was very much an in-and-out, Ive got other things to do, he said. Now, I take more time. Im more liable to sit with people and listen to people a little bit more. Before the fire, Welsh said he was an ambitious priest. That changed, as well. As a priest, I used to try to be the best, he said. I discovered that when I try to be the best, its all about me. What I try to do now is that I try to be the priest that people need today. So, when someone comes to me, my prayer always is: What do you need from me as your priest, now? That might be a listening ear. That might be some advice. It might be a pat on the back to say youre OK. It might be that you need me to sit and listen to your joke and laugh at it, even if its bad. Welsh said he asks himself: What does this person, or these people, or this group what do they need from me, now? They dont need me to be the best priest. They need me to be their priest, their priest who loves them, he said. Welsh was born in England to Scottish parents, but grew up in Ireland. He came to the United States in 1998, and was ordained three years later in Nebraska. Welsh said spiritual needs are universal, to know that spiritually, theyre loved. When fellow priests and brothers are struggling, Welsh reminds them that we make priesthood difficult because we think its about doing, he said. Its more about being. When were ordained, were ordained to be in the image of Christ. And we forget that and were lost in our own image, Welsh said. And we get disappointed, and the people get disappointed. We dont get fulfilled, and the people dont get fulfilled. And we all end up in this bad place. Instead it should be more about the image of Christ. What did Christ instruct us to do? Welsh said. He said, Love one another, as I have loved you. Thats the key, I think, to all faith, he said. No matter what we do, we have to do it with love. People will respond to love. When Welsh officiates the mass, he begins with a reminder that those present are on a journey together. As such, they are bound to stumble and fall. But they are there to help each other and to continue together on the journey, he said. When he prepares his homilies, he consults a number of sources and draws on his personal experiences. As a priest, I struggle like you struggle, Welsh said. I have good days and bad days. I have high moments and low moments. Were journeying together. When others hurt him, he said, he realizes he is unable to forgive them. I ask God to forgive them, he said. Like commentator Bill OReilly, he enjoys being pithy. He also recalls this bit of advice offered by a professor when Welsh was learning to write homilies: In three minutes, youll move hearts. In 10 minutes, youll freeze butts. Welsh, who has been an associate and a pastor at several churches in Nebraska, said he has never requested a particular assignment, trusting the Holy Spirit will lead him to the right place to use his skills. Currently, he is on loan to the Diocese of St. Petersburg, from the Archdiocese of Omaha. Hes not sure how long this assignment will last. When I came down here, my archbishop said, This is for three years. And, I said, Well, let the Holy Spirit decide that. Father Garry Welsh is on loan to the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary in Land O Lakes. He says a fire that destroyed the rectory where he was living in Nebraska transformed his ministry.

Aquafinz owner Angela Madonia announced the new hires, including Chef Lenny Terlaje, a highly regarded local chef known for his nightly chefs specials at incredibly reasonable prices. Aquafinz is getting rave reviews from new and old guests alike for their new chef-driven menu that features top quality, creative, fresh seafood! said Angela. Chef Lenny and the new management team at Aquafinz have designed an exciting menu for the S.R. 54 corridor in Lutz/Land O Lakes that offers culinary excellence at neighborhood prices. From the cravable foods coming out of the kitchen, to the camaraderie at the bar with our seven big-screen televisions, and a happy hour featuring $4 well drinks all night, to the warmth and knowledge of our hostesses and servers, were already achieving our goal to be known for better food and service, said Angela. When asked what better food and service was~ Its incredibly hard to define, but you sure know it when you receive it, said Angela. From the half-dozen cheater glasses at the reception desk for the guests who forget theirs at home, to coloring pages for kids when adult conversation gets boring, the Aquafinz team knows that GOD is in the details and leaves almost no stone unturned to provide one of the better Tampa dining experiences to a market that has come to expect more than the ever growing chain restaurants can deliver.The New Restaurant on 54Seafood ~ Steak ~ Crab

The more models you tour, the better opportunity to win!* MODELS OPEN DAILYOF NEW HOMES Government shutdown could soon victimize poor children, infantsBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comLacy White followed the latest news from Washington, D.C. closely over the past few weeks as Congress and the President haggled over spending measures that led to a federal government shutdown. Not only was her husband a civilian contractor at MacDill Air Force Base who would lose his paycheck if a shutdown were to occur, but both were eight weeks into caring for an infant theyve fostered since she was born, and were depending on the government to help pay for the babys needs. This is a double whammy for us, and its frustrating, the former Land O Lakes resident said. We need the checks to help with the babys formula, and without those, wed have to pay out of our own pockets. But if my husband is working without pay, too, then we really have to dig to get the money. White receives support through WIC, the federal assistance program more formally known as the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. Individual states like Florida administer the program using federal dollars money that is now missing because of the federal governments inability to keep the financial coffers open. Communication between the government and WIC recipients has been nonexistent. Even visiting the website of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which runs the federal program, brings up a page telling visitors that due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available. So, White and others like her have to turn to the news. As far as I have read, WIC is shut down, and we will no longer be getting her formula checks, White said of her foster baby. No one has contacted us. No one has let us know. We have to go by word of mouth.But checks are continuing to be cut, even as federal dollars stop, said Deanna Krautner, a spokeswoman for Pasco County. She referred more detailed questions to the state level, who in a statement said Florida Department of Health continues to monitor the situation in Washington, D.C., and the department will be able to continue WIC services for the foreseeable future.When pressed further about where those dollars are coming from, Department of Health spokeswoman Denishia Sword said the state has put together temporary operating dollars, including reallocated federal funding, USDA contingency funds and infant formula rebates. Yet, those contingency funds wont last long. Bruce Alexander, communications director with the USDA, told Forbes magazine that if the shutdown is not resolved before October ends, there may not be sufficient money to keep the program going. The USDA typically receives $7 billion to run programs like WIC nationally, but the programs contingency fund is just $125 million enough to run the program for six days. Whites family, luckily, has put money away for a rainy day, and only collects WIC because she has a foster baby. Yet, families that solely depend on WIC wont have those options, and she fears children not just in the Tampa Bay area, but across the country, will suffer. We would typically spend $100 a month on formula, and thats just to feed her, White said. There are a lot of expenses involving children, and families who live in poverty would not be able to do this on their own. If her family ran into problems, White said her church will be available to help. But there may be only so much charity groups can do especially if so many families end up in need, said Thomas Mantz, chief executive of Feeding America Tampa Bay. While the organization does not necessarily provide the same services as WIC, if families have to suddenly pay for items like formula, they may have to make cuts in other areas like food. Any time there are challenges in the economic environment, one of the choices people will often make is the choice of food, Mantz said. They have to pay a medical bill, or they have to get their car running to get to work, or they have to pay for their lights or rent. Any time those choices have to be made, these folks have to go without food, and seek food assistance elsewhere. Feeding America will move 40 million pounds of food in its 10-county service area this year, but that is still not enough, covering less than 50 percent of the need. And if the government shutdown continues, that will be even more assistance the group will have to be ready to supply. Congress and the President getting back on the same page couldnt come too soon, White said. The government needs to get back to work, and start paying for these much-needed social programs. My husband has to get up every day to go to work without a paycheck, yet these guys are up there still paying themselves while we are all just waiting, White said. Something needs to be done. The U.S. Department of Agriculture website, which is the home for information on the federal governments WIC program to help support women, infants and children, shows only an error page to anyone trying to visit. The federal government shutdown has created a potentially serious problem for poor families, who depend on government assistance to feed their children.

The cupcakes were later sold for $1 each, with proceeds benefitting the fight against breast cancer. (Photos by Michael Hinman) Just in time for Thanksgiving, Zoe Dutton, who works in accessories at Belks, painstakingly made these turkey cupcakes. Each cupcake took 15 minutes to create, and is a combination of caramel, pound cake and wheat sticks. Whenever you want a cupcake, be sure to look for your mummy. This cupcake, which helps celebrate Halloween (while raising money for breast cancer) was chosen as one of the most creative during the Belks employee cupcake contest last week. Swiftmud lowers taxes, cuts budgetThe Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Southwest Florida Water Management District, the water usage governing agency commonly known as Swiftmud, has reduced its ad valorem taxes for the upcoming fiscal year. Swiftmuds governing board adopted a millage rate of 0.3818 mills, down 2.8 percent from the previous year. One mill represents $1 of tax on every $1,000 of taxable property value. For example, a home appraised at $150,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption would be levied a Swiftmud tax of $38.18 for the coming year. The savings represent a $2.9 million overall reduction in how much Swiftmud will collect from property owners this year compared to last year. This years budget totals $170.8 million. That budget includes $95.8 million for capital and infrastructure as well as other projects. Those investments, after being leveraged with various financial partners, will rise to $138 million. It will be funded using money available from previous years as well as projects that have already been completed under budget or outright cancelled. Swiftmuds district encompasses roughly 10,000 square miles in all or part of 16 counties in the state, according to the agencys website. It serves a population of 4.7 million people. The state allows Swiftmud to levy up to 1 mill, but the agency actually collects about a third of that with the current budget. buy a $300 gift car dand get a$7500gift card buy a $500 gift cardand get a$12500gift card buy a $100 gift cardand get a$2000gift cardcameocameo hair nails massage facials full body waxing spa packages hair extensions keratin Jane Iredale make-up and Der malogica Skin Care1817 collier parkway, lutzcameosalonspa.comsalon and spa8139487411 BRAS FOR A CAUSE FightagainstBreast CancerDonate a new or gently used bra and receive a $10 spa voucher!1 voucher per guestpink hair extensions......$10-$15 pink wall ribbons....................$1All proceeds raised will be donated to LifePath Hospice.

Dale Mabry Hwy. But her husband stood strong. Choosing to have the baby has affected her cancer treatment and the babys birth date. I had a total, radical modified mastectomy, she said, noting it had to be done in the second trimester of her pregnancy. She has also undergone four sets of chemotherapy, where she received strange looks from people when they saw a pregnant woman on her way to treatments. While both Boothe and her husband had doubts, experts told her the type of chemotherapy she received during her pregnancy would not harm the baby. She had to have her baby delivered at around 33 weeks, instead of the typical 40, in order for her to stay on track for her treatments. That early delivery could cause complications, but Boothe said his development is now in Gods hands. Yet, her faith hasnt always been this rock-solid. Boothe struggled with it after her mother, Donna Mullens, was struck by cancer for a second time. I kind of had a falling out with the Lord when my mom was sick, Boothe said. She was a teenager when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer the first time. When she got sick the first time, she didnt even want to tell me because she didnt want me to get upset and she didnt want to hurt me, Boothe said.Her mothers cancer returned in 2007, and by then Boothe had married and moved to Hawaii with her husband. Her parents had planned to visit her there, but had to cancel the trip when her mom got her diagnosis.Instead, Boothe returned to Lutz to help her mother. She had a rough time, Boothe said. It was hard for me to watch her go through that. After Mullens recovered once again, Boothe got involved in Relay for Life. She also became heavily involved in the Land O Lakes Sun Rays Concert for a Cure. And now friends are getting together to raise money for Boothe with the Kicking Cancer for Ashley fundraiser. The event takes place on Oct. 12 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Police Grounds, at the corner of Bell Lake Road and Land O Lakes Boulevard. If anyone deserves help, its Boothe, Fontanez said. When she found out that I had a (Relay for Life) team, she baked her heart out, Fontanez said. She went ahead and she did seven or eight cakes. She did chocolate-covered strawberries, candies, cookies. In fact, Boothe made so many goodies that they were giving them away at the end of the event. Shes done baking every year. Shes been on our team for five years, Fontanez said. While Boothe is grateful for the help, she wishes she were on the giving, rather than the receiving, end. I want to be independent. I want to do it on my own, she said. This time, I just cant. I dont have the resources. I dont have the money. I dont have the energy. Boothe is humbled by the support that others are showing her. The Fit Body Boot Camp is having a fundraising event for her with a two-week boot camp pass to its gym for a $33 donation. A personal trainer there also will match the money raised up to $3,000, and is giving away prizes to existing or new clients that participate in the fundraiser. Firefighter Charities of Pasco Inc. and the fire chief are also helping. We are now allowed to wear pink duty shirts as we work, said Jesus J.J. Martinez, president of the charitable organization. The money we raise from the shirts will be going to Kicking Cancer for Ashley. Boothe said she is in awe by the kindness of others. So many people are so giving. All of these businesses that are willing to donate, Im just very grateful, she said.813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 14 Want to help?Those wishing to help Ashley Boothe can make contributions at Ucaring.com/ashleyboothe or to the Ashley Gayle Boothe Benefit Trust Account at any Chase BankIf you goThe Kicking Cancer for AshleyFundraiser is on Oct. 12 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Police grounds, at the corner of Bell Lake Road and Land O Lakes Boulevard.

In 2010, Gateway Crossings expanded to a little less than 120,000, a jump of 293 percent, while the western side grew just 28 percent to 182,000. By 2025, Gateway Crossings is expected to grow to 214,000 people compared to 194,000 on the western side, according to numbers provided by Pasco County officials.Already, 94 percent of Pascos population resides in the unincorporated areas. If the Pasco County Commission were a city commission, we would be the 12th largest city in the state, Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said at the chamber meeting. Its an interesting challenge for us as commissioners as we have to act like a city commission, while other commissions like the one in Pinellas actually controls very little with so many incorporated areas there. Pasco is one of the fastest growing areas in the state, but still exports 90,000 people a day to Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, while importing just 40,000. If we could get people to work here in the county, we could bring our wages up, Kendrick said. To make that growth work, planning had to start a long time ago, and the county is getting its act together, Starkey said. One of the first major issues the commission had to address once Starkey arrived was the permitting process, which she described as a disaster. We were known as a difficult place to do business, Starkey said. We still are, but we are working on that. Permitting has been streamlined, removing a lot of red tape that existed before, with the hopes that smart growth will be encouraged by the private sector. That does mean, however, building up rather than out. Density is going to be key, but Pasco will need the infrastructure to support it. Already, key areas like U.S. 41 and the Suncoast Parkway junctions with State Roads 54 and 52 have more than 2 million people living within a 40-minute drive time. Wiregrass Ranch already is not far behind with 1.92 million people within a couple gallons of gas. Yet, Pasco still wants to keep its community spirit with aspects like sidewalks and neighborhoods. Yet, some traffic arteries must remain arteries. State Road 54 will not be a main street, Kendrick said. It will not be walkable, ever. Communities are springing up on either side of State Road 54, which are pedestrianfriendly, but the county is going to need a much expanded road system to carry the incoming population and avoid traffic gridlock. You can see the numbers coming into the area, and they are not going to fit on (State Road) 54, Starkey said. You could walk faster. The county, however, will have to find ways to pay for it. Property taxes already are lower than 60 other counties in the state, Kendrick said, and the recent failure of the additional gas tax by the county commission is going to make it nearly impossible to build more roads in the foreseeable future. Weve had to build $8 million out of the budget to fund roads, and we are going to have to do something to fill that gap, Starkey said. Its going to be a challenge. Representatives from the Urban Land Institute, which is helping Pasco County officials with long-range economic development plans, are visiting this week to follow up on recommendations made five years ago. Further suggestions on how to enhance and support growth in the county will be made in the coming months. There are only about 5,000 hot air balloonists in the United States, Warren said, and while theyre spread out around the country, their shared interest in aviation makes them a tight-knit community. Chuck Norris, a flight instructor at the Tampa North Flight Center, said aviation enthusiasts will have a chance to see some interesting aircraft. They can also purchase rides on a 1942 Boeing Steerman. Norris is excited about the event. This airport has been a very sleepy airport for years. We want to wake it up, he said. Organizers intend to make this an annual event, Warren said. In fact, planning for that already has begun, she said. If you go Festival of Flight, a festival celebrating aviation, will make its debut Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 at the Tampa North Aeropark, 4241 Birdsong Blvd., in Lutz. There will be hot air balloons, interesting aircraft, kite flying and vendors. Admission is free.

The new plate, which features two chairs on a beach one big and one small will only become available if 1,000 pre-order vouchers are purchased by June 1, 2015. Once that goal of 1,000 vouchers has been met, production of the plates would begin. The plates will not only raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters, but it also will create statewide awareness of the organization, according to leaders of the nonprofit. We invite community members to take their support on the road and buy their plates today to help generate much-needed revenue to expand mentoring opportunities for children in Florida, said Jody Clifford, chief executive of the statewide organization, in a release. The statewide group was organized in 1995 and assists the 13 regional agencies in Florida. The goal is to help provide children with long-term, nurturing, one-to-one mentoring relationships with caring adults to change the lives of children for the better. Vouchers will be available at local county tax collectors offices for the regular registration fee plus a $25 additional payment. For more information on the license plates, or how to become involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters, visit the state organizations website at www.BBBSFlorida.org. Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida has less than two years to get 1,000 pre-orders of a new specialty license plate before the state can begin production. State officials approved the plate in October. (Image provided)By Kim SalernoSpeci al to The Laker/Lutz NewsShes not just a dog to you. Shes your sounding board, your faithful sidekick, and your pride and joy. Shes a bona fide family member. Youll do anything to keep her out of harms way. But when it comes to playtime, are you protecting her too much? As pet parents, we want the absolute best for our canine kids. But just like anxious human parents, we can sometimes fall into the trap of overprotecting our dogs as they play, especially if theyre on the small side. Helicopter pet parents undoubtedly mean well, but they arent necessarily doing whats best for their dog. In fact, the results can be detrimental, and possibly even dangerous.Expert dog trainer and animal behaviorist Elsa Larsen of MyWonderfulDog.net, notes that while its perfectly appropriate in some situations to adopt protective behaviors, when taken to extremes or done at the wrong time, actions like avoiding socialization, keeping your dog on a short leash, or picking up or carrying your dog can actually decrease their confidence and set her up for fearful, aggressive or defensive behavior.Keeping your dog firmly leashed in public places is always a wise idea. However, tightening the leash during doggie meet-and-greets or play dates can backfire. This is especially true at dog parks, where there are often many unrestrained dogs around.Dogs have an instinctive fight-or-flight response to threatening situations, Larsen notes. If you have a dog on a leash, and all of a sudden hes surrounded by a bunch of dogs off leash, he may act defensive because his opportunity to flee has been taken away.Larsen advises that if your dog is in imminent danger, picking him up may be the safest possible thing to do. However, picking up your dog to help him avoid social discomfort or anxiety could cause more problems than it solves. It can reinforce anxiety, and may even exacerbate existing behavioral issues. If your dog is a resource guarder and sees you as one of his most important resources, holding him close while youre around other dogs may cause him to try and aggressively guard you from them. Small dogs inspire our best protective natures, and toting your little gal around may seem like a kind gesture, and a great way for you to be close. But Larsen warns that constantly carrying your dog can actually do more harm than good.I call it Little Dog Syndrome, she explains. Pet parents dont feel comfortable with their little dog navigating through the world on their own four feet. But carrying your dog everywhere does him a great disservice because he doesnt get a chance to be a dog. You may, in fact, be creating a dog whos antisocial and doesnt have good skills meeting and greeting other dogs.So how do you know when to step in, and when to hang back and play it cool? Larsen stresses that theres no simple, straightforward answer. Every dog is an individual and every situation is unique. But she does offer some tried-andtrue tips for ensuring that your pup is happy and safe while he plays. Whenever possible, lose the leash during greetings and playtime. If your dog feels threatened and cant run because shes tethered to the leash, her only option is to fight. Periodically interrupt playtime. This keeps all the dogs from getting fatigued and overexcited. Larsen suggests watching your dog carefully after a play pause. If she seems relaxed and eager to return to the group, its a good sign that shes enjoying herself and feeling confident. Watch everyday playing for signs of overexcitement, like excessive barking, rough play, bullying, challenging stances, or even sneezing. If your dog is being threatened in any way, cries out in pain, or seems to always end up on the bottom of the pack, playtimes over. If you give your pooch some freedom to be her own wonderful self and the opportunity to face challenges on her own, youll be rewarded with a dog thats more confident, more social and much happier. So land the copter, and head out to play! Kim Salerno is the president and founder of TripsWithPets.com, and is an expert in the field of pet travel.

It is timeless, as in 2000 years ago. Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Jay A. Nelson, DMD, has been helping patients in the area solve their dental problems for 25 years and saw the need to add dental sleep medicine to his list of services. He has years of successful experience working in collaboration with medical doctors to provide patients with an alternative to the obtrusive Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy. Dr. Nelson has fitted more than a hundred patients suffering from sleep apnea with a dental appliance that fits over the teeth much like a retainer. The appliance moves the jaw forward and opens the airway during sleep. The result is an immediate and dramatic reduction in snoring (in many cases, snoring stops completely) which is often a relief to the patients bed partner who complains that their sleep too is interrupted by their partners snoring. But more importantly, the open airway created by the dental appliance allows the patient to sleep through the night and awaken fully rested. There is nothing more important to maintaining good health and an energetic, productive day than a restful nights sleep, said Dr. Nelson from his office on S.R. 54 in Lutz. Our body needs a continuous flow of oxygen to sleep restfully, he continues. It is essential that our brain and body reboot every night by getting enough sleep. If we dont reboot, lack of sleep impacts every aspect of our health, including weight gain, high blood pressure, memory loss and mental health. Dr. Nelson is one of the areas few dentists to be certified in treating sleep breathing disorders in collaboration with your physician. His office recently received a three-year accreditation from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, which required his practice to meet or exceed all standards for professional patient care, including continuing education for his staff and meeting standards for safety, customer service and patient follow-up. Scientific studies have determined that dental sleep therapy is an effective alternative to CPAP therapy which uses a bedside machine that pumps air into a patients nose and mouth throughout the night. Many people stop using their CPAP machine because they find its mask uncomfortable and the machine itself loud and disruptive to their bed partner, said Dr. Nelson. Those people are desperate to find an alternative that they can tolerate to help them sleep through the night and to stop snoring. Dr. Nelson fits his patients with mouthguard-like retainers worn only during sleep. These retainers easily and painlessly snap over a patients top and bottom teeth.With the retainers in place, they prevent the airway from collapsing by holding the tongue in place and moving the jaw forward. It typically takes a month for the retainers to be adjusted to a patients mouth. After the desired effect is reached, the patient does nothing more than pop the appliance in at night and rinse it off and store it away in the morning in a small carrying case.Diane is a local businesswoman in her 50s who was fitted with an oral appliance by Dr. Nelson six months ago. I no longer snore and sleep better than I have in years, said Diane. I never realized what a huge difference a good night sleep would have on how I felt. My energy level is the best its been in years, and I wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new day. The National Sleep Foundation reports that more than 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders today, and projects that number will more than double in 30 years as our population continues to age. While these numbers are astounding, more astonishing is the number of people who are either unaware that they have a sleep disorder, or believe there is nothing they can do to treat it if they cannot tolerate CPAP treatment. Its important that folks know there is an alternative to CPAP that is effective and affordable, said Dr. Nelson. We have helped so many people who find our oral appliances comfortable, easy to take in and out and convenient for travel. Our goal is to help people live longer by improving the quality of their sleep. Nothing is more important than sleep for good physical and mental health, and theres no reason that anyone needs to suffer from snoring and sleep disorders.Dr. Jay Nelson Treats Sleep Apnea with Nonintrusive Dental RetainerSTOP SNORING AND SLEEP SOUNDLY THROUGH THE NIGHT NelsonDentistryand Dental Sleep Medicinewww.SleepBetterFlorida.com www.NelsonDentistry.com (813) 235-0315 CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 9, 2013 17

If youre 40 or older, chances are that you have been heeding the American Cancer Societys recommendation for annual breast screenings. For some women, one of the most difficult aspects of getting a mammogram isnt the test itself its remembering to schedule it each year and finding a convenient time and location to do so. Luckily, for Lutz area residents, breast imaging services are now available at The Breast Center, a division of Imaging Services at St. Josephs Hospital-North. A sister facility to the Shimberg Breast Center at St. Josephs Womens Hospital in Tampa, The Breast Center has accreditation from the American College of Radiology, said Vikki ONeal, BS,RT(R)(M)(CT)(QM), manager of imaging services. We offer a full range of high-quality imaging and breast biopsy services close to home. American College of Radiology DesignationTo achieve the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation, weve completed a rigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally-accepted standards of care, said ONeal. At St. Josephs Hospital-North we are committed to the highest standard of care, in addition to customer service. Board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists oversee the accreditation process. Responding to customer requests, The Breast Center now offers evening and weekend availability for screening mammograms. This makes it even more convenient to schedule the annual appointment. Breast Imaging Services We understand that breast imaging is very important to women and can be very stressful, said ONeal. Our staff is committed to helping patients through the breast screening process. Services at The Breast Center at St. Josephs Hospital-North include: Digital mammography Breast MRI Breast ultrasound Diagnostic and screening mammography A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast that can detect a tumor or mass even before it can be felt or seen. Sometimes, a mammogram comes back with an abnormality on the image. As much as 80 percent of irregularities found on a mammogram are not cancerous. However, it is critical that you have the abnormality looked at againusually with a few more mammogram images followed by a breast ultrasound if needed. An ultrasound can help to detect if a mass is filled with fluid (cyst) or solid (benign or malignant tumor). After the ultrasound, your radiologist may recommend a breast biopsy. The Breast Center offers minimally invasive breast biopsies, including stereotactic ultrasound-guided biopsies and MRIguided breast biopsies. The radiologist inserts a small, hollow needle into the area of abnormality using ultrasound and/or mammograms, and/or MRI to guide the radiologist's needle into the suspected lesion. A sample of cells is sent to the pathologist to determine if they are cancerous. In most cases, breast masses are not usually cancer, but it is important to rule out the possibility. A mammogram should be number one on every womans list after turning 40. Its the best method to detect breast cancer. Specially trained eyes can now see cancer in its earliest stages when its easiest to treat, said ONeal. So make your annual appointment as soon as possible. 4211 Van Dyke Road Lutz StJosephsNorth.org Living Well Convenient Breast Screening Services for the Lutz Community

But few probably expected one of those changes would be to become accustomed to winning. And winning a lot. With just three games remaining including Tuesdays late matchup with district-leading Fivay the Sunlake Seahawks are 12-5, producing the first winning season in school history, and chalking up the most wins in school history as well. Ask the players, and theyll point toward first-year coach Deann Newton as the reason for the change. But ask Newton, and she points right back at the players. The whole team has really come together, Newton said. They like each other, which is good anytime. But these girls really get along well, and that has really helped with our team chemistry. Newton joined the Seahawks after a 10year break from coaching. Her most recent job before that was with Mitchell High School, where she took a 17-9 team into the playoffs, knocked off a heavily favored Lakeland High School in the first round, and then lost to eventual state champion Plant High School in four sets in the regional semifinals. She returned to a sport that has changed a lot (primarily, the implementation of rally scoring, which allows points to be scored on every serve). The higher point totals means a lot more scoreboard watching for many, but not for the Seahawks. I tell my girls all the time not to even look at the scoreboard, Newton said. It doesnt even matter. We have to play every point like its the last point of the game. Every ball, every serve, we have to focus on each one at a time. The Seahawks have developed a strong core of players in recent seasons, but got some extra help this year with four transfers, including Sunlakes new team captain, Malika Saffore. The Bishop McLaughlin High School transplant is one of the leaders in digs with 157, and has more than 400 assists. Other transfers this year included junior outside hitter Shelby Stratton from Land O Lakes Christian High School, senior outside hitter Maeghan OFray from Ocala, and junior outside hitter Sara Nafziger, who moved to Florida last summer. Saffore, who actually played on Sunlakes varsity team as a freshman, says she returned to a much different Seahawks team for her senior year.There is a much more excitement than I ever remember on this team before, Saffore said. This stems from the need for everyone to stay focused and contribute, because this is a team that doesnt operate with star players.Im a senior, and Im the captain, but Im really just one of 12 girls on this team, Saffore said. We always work as a team, and we always motivate each other as a team. And this year, we have so much talent. We keep looking at that talent, and are getting a hint of what we can accomplish. The season is almost over, and while Sunlake has been successful on the court, they know that once the playoffs begins, everyone starts back at the beginning. And a loss there means the season is over. But just as Newton directs her players to focus on just one point at a time, she asks them to focus on the games the same way. We dont think one game is more important than another because every game is important, Saffore said. Each game has to turn into a win, and we cant take anything for granted. Crowds have started to grow for Sunlake home games as more and more people start to hear about the success the Seahawks are having on the court. But Newton wants to see the bleachers filled, because the energy of the crowd fuels her girls even more. Thats probably one of the most disappointing things Ive noticed since coming back, its the size of crowds for volleyball games at our school and other schools, Newton said. Im 36, Im not that old, but when I played, we packed the gym. People will really start to come as the team improves, and for now, the Seahawks are getting tremendous support from its core of parents and students who make it a point to be at every Sunlake volleyball game. And they shouldnt miss a thing, because it only gets more exciting from here. Our district is so tight right now, Newton said. The top five teams are all strong teams, and anyone can knock anybody off. Were going to have to play our game the whole time to really make it through to the finals. Thats for sure. Seahawks coach Deann Newton says its just as important for the team to focus on needs outside the team like raising awareness for breast cancer as it is to focus on each game. Sunlake has been able to do both, hitting their way into a 12-5 record so far this season.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Mike Matthew Special to The Laker / Lutz NewsAlicia Lafarga didnt start out as a teacher, but after retiring from her desk job, she knew that was the only thing she wanted to do. She moved from Miami to Tampa two years ago to be near her daughter and began looking for an opportunity that would enable her to have the greatest impact teaching children. She found that with Tutor Doctor. Alicia opened her Tutor Doctor franchise one year ago. Its a wonderful experience after sitting behind a desk for 40 years, says Alicia. Over the course of her career she worked with school boards and the county in Miami. These experiences strengthened her desire to do something with children after she retired. Tutor Doctor provides in-home tutoring for students of all ages, from kindergarten to senior citizens. Its a great company to work with, says Alicia. They provide a lot of support to both owners and tutors which really helps us to provide the very best tutoring experience to our clients.Alicia provides a free consultation to anyone interested in tutoring. The purpose of the consultation is two-fold. First, she talks with the parents to fully understand their concerns and expectations. The majority of her time is spent talking with the student. This information will help her to find the best tutor for the child.We want to match the student with the right tutor, she explains. The tutor must have the necessary subject-matter skills. We also try to take into account any special interests or abilities the student has, such as a love of sports, and try to find a tutor with similar interests and abilities. Every tutoring lesson plan is customized around the students school curriculum. Parents are kept up-to-date regarding their childs progress with followup notes and assessments after every tutoring session. We have to be able to make a difference for every student, says Alicia. Tutoring helps students improve their grades and testtaking abilities, but the greatest reward is in the noticeable improvement in the childs self-confidence. It is the students rise in confidence that makes a big difference and leads to benefits in other areas of their life, says Alicia. Tutoring works. Alicia currently has 50 tutors working with her. All of her tutors are certified teachers or graduate school students with teaching experience. She is always looking for new tutors with experience and a passion to support students and their community. Tutoring is all about integrity, says Alicia. We never lie to the client or try to sell them on the tutoring process. We also resolve any personality issues between the student and tutor immediately. This is a relationship-based experience, and we want everyone to be happy with the tutoring process. To sum up the Tutor Doctor difference in one sentence Alicia says, We provide one-on-one individualized instruction on all subjects in their own home and at their convenience. Learning doesnt have to be a struggle. Call Alicia for a free consultation.

The runners were optimistic and prepared for whatever they had to face on the various courses. Unfortunately, nobody was prepared for Coach Kris Keppels recent pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Now the man who hadnt missed a competition in 20 years of coaching has been forced to miss practices and meets, leaving the team stunned and concerned. I was just shocked, and I think the rest of the team was, too, said Tyler Stahl, one of the teams top runners. You feel like if youve been through something like this before like with Steven theres no way it could happen again. Steven is Steven Barnebei, a cross-country athlete who was diagnosed with brain cancer in his junior season. After emergency surgery and dozens of radiation doses, Barnebei has returned to the sport in his senior year with a cancer-free diagnosis and a determination to compete at a high level. That experience was emotionally taxing for the team last year. And now, after rallying around their teammate, the runners now have to rally around their coach. Since the diagnosis, its the experienced runners who have stepped up to lead the team. Stahl and Travis Nichols seniors, team captains and state qualifiers last year are getting a lot of support from parents and Rick Moody, a friend of Keppels with experience coaching Olympic athletes. But they know that to keep things running smoothly, they have to demonstrate real leadership both on and off the courses. Weve had to really step up in keeping our team focused on post-season goals, and keeping them from being discouraged from the setbacks, Nichols said. That means coaching teammates in practice and keeping them focused and upbeat during events. Keppel still guides the team by sending out workouts and goal times via email, and the team leaders know that everyone wants to succeed for him. The team is staying pretty focused and we just keep saying that they need to work hard and perform well for coach, Stahl said. Working hard and performing well was commonplace when Keppel was at every practice and competition, and its carrying over in his absence: The team placed third in the 2013 Gator Invitational Oct. 5 at Crews Lake Park. At the event, the top times were nearly dominated by Land O Lakes runners. Nichols took first place, Stahl took third and teammate Jake Poore finished fourth. All three broke the 17-minute mark easily. Both Stahl and Nichols share optimism for the rest of the year, and look forward to having their coach back as soon as possible. And while it might seem difficult to keep running and stay focused while missing their leader, nobody is letting up or lowering their goals because Coach Keppel isnt able to be there right now. In fact, Stahl said hes been able to improve his concentration in the face of the teams recent adversity. I think it is actually easier to focus on running after hearing about Keppels diagnosis, Stahl said. I have more of an incentive to work hard and do well than before. I want to make him proud.
