The more models you tour, the better opportunity to win!*US Hwy 41, Land O Lakes 6 miles north of SR 54 By Michael Hinmanm h i n m an@cnewspub s.co mAdrienne Castens signs her emails with a phrase of inspiration from Metropolitan Ministries: Hope starts with a meal. Castens church, Keystone Community Church on State Road 54 near Land O Lakes Boulevard, provided a lot of hope already with its annual holiday food drive for Metropolitan Ministries. But Castens and other members of Keystone knew they could do more. Last year, Castens and her team started Fun Feeds Pasco, a food drive kickoff event that turned making a donation into a festival. And thanks to the success of that event, Keystone will do it again this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. I dont have the exact number in front of me, but we brought in three times as much food as we normally do during the festival last year, said Castens, who has attended Keystone with her family for the last six years. So we decided to do it again this year, and this time weve got even more activities for Gaynor Dietz poses with some of the turkeys donated during last years food drives that helps Metropolitan Ministries feed hungry families during the holiday through Keystone Community Church. (Photos courtesy of Adrienne Castens)By B.C. Manionb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mAt first blush, Lindsey and Ashley Valenti look like typical preteenage girls. They enjoy doing typical preteen things: Going to Disney theme parks, attending birthday parties and playing. But doing even these simple things is difficult for the Wesley Chapel girls, as they both suffer from juvenile arthritis. Still, they keep an upbeat attitude, which their mom, Mary Valenti, said is probably one of the reasons theyve been chosen as the child honorees for Tampas Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell Run/Walk. The event is set for Dec. 21 at the Dale Mabry campus of Hillsborough County Community College. Besides a 5-kilometer and one-mile run, there also will be activities for kids, a silent auction and awards. Valenti is pleased that her daughters were selected for the honor because she thinks its important to spread the word about juvenile arthritis, a condition she believes is often misunderstood. Both girls who also require a monthly infusion of antibodies because of an immune system condition called specific antibody deficiency were diagnosed in 2010, but Valenti suspects that they had the condition much longer. Lindsey, 12, said she began noticing probAshley Valenti, left, and her sister Lindsey have been selected as the child honorees for the Tampa Bay Arthritis Foundations Jingle Bell Walk/Run event in December. Both girls have had to curtail many of the activities they enjoy because of the pain they suffer from juvenile arthritis. (Photo by B.C. Manion)Young girls keep smiling through arthritis painBy B.C. Manionb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mSusan Scherer one of four finalists for a national nursing honor wants to help patients understand their medical conditions and to obtain the most appropriate care. Scherer will find out Friday if she received the 2013 Oncology Nurse Excellence award from the Academy of Oncology Nurse Navigators when they meet in Memphis, Tenn. Scherer is gratified to be recognized as being among the nations leading oncology nurses, but she is even more excited about a business she has launched that will serve patients in a new way: RN Cancer Guides. It pairs oncology nurses with cancer patients to help the patients gain a better understanding of their medical condition, and to be better equipped to manage their care. Its a unique approach, Scherer said, noting its never been done. The company is in its infancy, but the Land O Lakes nurse foresees vast potential for expansion, as there is no shortage of a need for the services her company provides. In a nutshell, RN Cancer Guides provides a nursing expert to review a patients medical records and medications, and to accompany a patient on important doctor visits when patients are at a decision point in their care. They also help patients become aware of resources that may be available to help them reduce medication and medical service charges, or to help cover those costs. Prior to launching her business this summer, Scherer worked as a nurse at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute. Before that, she was a nurse in Minnesota where she suffered a stroke. That gave her a greater affinity for working with patients with neurological conditions. Scherers goal is to help patients learn enough to handle their health care issues on their own, but she said most people are not equipped to deal with the complex issues that confront cancer patients. On top of that, patients generally are grappling with emotional and financial pressures, as well as impacts their conditions have on their work and family lives. She believes oncology nurses are in a unique position to help cancer patients understand their condition, become more Susan Scherer, a nurse who lives in Land O Lakes, has created a business called RN Cancer Guides. It pairs an oncology nurse with a patient to help the patient gain a clearer understanding of complex medical issues as well as the complicated medical system. (Photo by B.C.

John Legg, RLutz, is suggesting a tech surge concentration for education. And Florida can help. Our nation, indeed global economy, has dramatically changed, and individuals that have digital and technological skills are, and will continue to be, in demand, Legg said in a release. Nationwide there is expected to be a 50 percent to 60 percent shortage of skilled workers in the technology field by 2018, Legg said. Yet, a report last year by Cyberstate ranks Florida first in computer training, second in space and defense hightechnology industries, third in engineering services, fourth in Internet and telecommunications services, and fifth in technology employment. It is imperative that our education system equips Floridas students with fluent digital and technological skills so they will be the leaders of this changing economy, Legg said. Many of Floridas business and education leaders have seen firsthand the need for policies and investment in technology in our schools. The Legislature has adopted policies that promote elementary school cyber security programs, middle school digital arts certification, and industry certifications as a substitute for rigorous high school graduation requirements, said Legg, who spent more than 10 years in the classroom as a certified teacher before entering politics. We must continue to march swiftly to excellence by equipping our students with the skills they need in order to lead in an ever-increasing digital economy, he said.Legg wants tech surge to target education A young Cub Scout carries the American flag during the parade.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Porter Campus aims to become hub of academic activityBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comDeja Ventura couldnt be more excited about the January opening of Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel. The new campus PHCCs fifth will make life much easier for Ventura, a student at the college. I cant wait, she said. Ventura and others attended an information session last week in a conference room at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. There, faculty and administration for the new campus gave the crowd a virtual tour of the new facility, and shared their aspirations for the quality of education it will bring to its students. Having a campus in Wesley Chapel will reduce Venturas commuting time for school by two hours, she said. It takes the 20-yearold an hour to drive each way to her classes now at PHCCs New Port Richey campus. Venturas also pleased that the new campus is near Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, where Ventura eventually wants to work. The Wiregrass Ranch High School graduate said she was a patient at the hospital, and the positive experience she had there helped seal her decision to pursue a nursing degree. Julio Rivera, an employee in the hospitals cafeteria, is also looking forward to the opening of the new campus, as he pursues classes in information technology. I live five to 10 minutes from here, he said. I drive by here all of the time. Rivera said. Stan Giannet, provost of Porter Campus, was enthusiastic about what the school intends to offer its students. Were very fired up, Giannet said, noting that PHCC expects to branch into four-year degree programs next year, with bachelors degrees in nursing as well as supervision and management. The community college has received approvals from the state for the programs and is awaiting approval on its application for accreditation for the programs. Once that clears, PHCC plans to change its name to Pasco-Hernando State College. The four-year programs are slated to begin in fall of 2014. Porter Campus also plans to be the only PHCC location to offer two new certification programs that the college will launch in 2014. Those certification programs are for surgical and pharmacy technicians, both fields where workers are in high demand. One of the colleges missions is to help address workplace needs. We want to be at the table to offer some solutions, Giannet said. The new campus is well equipped to serve student needs, Giannet said. It has a seven-story building, which includes four stories of classrooms on top of a three-story parking deck. Beyond traditional classrooms, it also has nursing, computer and science labs as well as a two-story library. The nursing labs are so current that the mannequins used there can breathe and talk. The campus also features two outdoor plaza areas, which Giannet believes will be popular places for people to congregate, for academic discussions and social gatherings. He aspires to make the new campus an intellectual, cultural and community hub. We want to make it a vibrant campus for this community, Giannet said. The campus doesnt have a cafeteria, but Giannet said students, staff and faculty members have many dining opportunities nearby. Its so ideally situated in the heart of Wesley Chapel. There are restaurants that are peppering this entire area, he said, adding that the library will have a coffee shop. Besides offering a wide variety of programs, the college is committed to helping its students succeed, Giannet said. You are not a number. You are known. This is the kind of climate we are going to have at Porter Campus at Wiregrass, Giannet said. Courses will be offered in a variety of ways. Some will be taught in the traditional mode of a teacher delivering face-to-face instruction. Some will be offered online. Some will be a combination of both. Pam Medley, the assistant dean of student development, said the college wants to help students get the classes they need. Those transferring in must be sure to get their transcripts, to help them during the enrollment process, she said. Unofficial records can be used during the registration process, but official records are needed to release financial aid. Its also important for high school graduates to be aware that they can enroll as early as May for classes that begin in August. The college will work closely with high schools for dual enrollment, where high school students can earn college credits, Medley said. She expects those relationships to be especially close between the college and Wiregrass Ranch High School, which is across the street from the new campus, and with Wesley Chapel High School, which is nearby.The college also has a Teaching-Learning Center, which is committed to helping students achieve their potential. The idea is to help students engage in learning, whether they are tackling a complex research project or struggling to stay on pace, said Natalie Epo, coordinator of the Teaching-Learning Center. Classes at Porter Campus are set to begin Jan. 13. For more information, visit the schools website at www.PHCC.edu. Stan Giannet, at left, provost at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, looks forward to creating a sense of community on campus and connections with the community it serves.

But the worst thing you can do is wait until there is pain or discomfort, because that means the cavity may be getting close to the nerve. If that process continues untreated you will be looking at asubstantially greater cost to fix. You will save yourself a lot if money if you see your dentist every six months for preventive care.

I shared with you that Andy and Erin were planning to marry next November after Andy returned from his upcoming deployment to Afghanistan. Well, a lot has happened since then. As you can see by the accompanying photo, Andy and Erin decided not to wait until 2014, and were wed earlier this month in a chapel on the base at Camp Lejeune, N.C. It was a lovely wedding on a beautiful autumn day, with fallen leaves carpeting the walk from the church, and branches laden with red, orange and yellow foliage perfectly framing their photos. The bride was gorgeous in a classic satin dress, and the groom stunning in his formal officer uniform. Andy proudly wore his white cover (as U.S. Marines call their hats) and playfully plopped it on his brides head after the ceremony a bit like Richard Gere and Debra Winger in An Officer and a Gentleman. Witnessing this joyous event was immediate family only mothers, fathers, sisters, brother, sister-in-law and one first cousin. Between both families there were just nine of us 11 including the bride and groom. The wedding was intimate and deeply personal, with Andy and Erin focusing 100 percent on each other and their vows. There was none of the stress usually associated with getting married because there were no guests to greet and no reception to worry about. Andy and Erin shared their commitment with their closest family members, those who have loved them since the day they were born, or younger siblings who never knew life without them. Everyone else grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends will have to wait until Nov. 8, 2014. Thats when Andy and Erin will renew their vows in the church where Erin grew up in Appleton, Wis. Together we will celebrate their union with a traditional Midwestern reception in a spacious hall overlooking the Fox River. Im still not sure exactly how this accelerated wedding came to be. Shortly after becoming engaged, Andy left for a month of training in southern California. While still out West, he called to tell me that he and Erin had decided to get married before he deployed instead of waiting another year. So with the blessings of their priest and their parents, Andy and Erin began planning their wedding, and were married four weeks later. It was surreal how the wedding details fell into place so easily and beautifully. Even the weather was perfect. As I write this column, Ive been back in Land O Lakes for three days and am still getting used to the idea of a married son and a new daughter-in-law. Of course I am thrilled, but it is an adjustment one of those transitional times most parents experience as their child embarks on a new life path quite separate from their own. And, of course, this is the way it is meant to be: For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh, Ephesians 5:31-33 I never gave much thought to this Biblical verse until Andys wedding. But now it resonates loudly, as it does undoubtedly for all parents who have witnessed their son become a husband, or their daughter become a wife. My son becomes a husband PUBLISHERS COLUMN Andy Mathes, son of The Laker/Lutz News publisher Diane Kortus, married Erin Morgan on Nov. 2 in Camp Lejeune, N.C. (Photo by Kathleen Payne Photography) Rehab center is Pascos biggest saleB y Mi chael Hi n m anm h i n m an@cnewspub s.co mNot much is expected to change at Trinity Regional Rehab Center on Welbilt Boulevard in Trinity after its building and land were sold late last month for $14.4 million. The new owner is Florida-LTC Inc., according to Pasco County property records, a company out of Westlake, Calif., that shares the same address and management staff as LTC Properties Inc. The larger company makes a business of acquiring properties around the country that already have existing leases with long-term care providers, according to the companys website. The sale is the largest in Pasco County this year, according to the Pasco County Property Appraisers office. It tops the $12 million spent to acquire Sweetwater Apartments outside of Dade City and the $10.4 million purchase of a CVS Pharmacy site on State Road 54 in New Port Richey, both in September. Trinity Regional Rehab provides physical, occupational and speech therapies in its 120-bed facility, located two miles west of Trinity Medical Center. It was built in 2008 as a replacement to the Tarpon Health Rehab Center located seven miles south in Pinellas County. Original construction costs were $11.1 million, according to a report filed ahead of its construction with Floridas Agency for Healthcare Administration. The facility was built by Pasco Health Investors LLC of Roanoke, Va., and leased to Eastlake Rehab & Care Center LLC of Clearwater. LTC Properties owns nine assisted living facilities and four other medical facilities in Florida. Last year, LTC purchased nine facilities across the country for $166.8 million, according to corporate filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Theyre sleepy. They cant express when theyre hurting, Walker said. That inability to communicate can cause frustrations, which boil over into behavior problems, Walker added. So, its essential to help them learn that their voice is a tool to help them get what they need or want. You want to focus on the language first, said Claire Stanford, a board-certified behavior analyst who works with children at the charter school for prekindergarten through fifth-grade students. Although public awareness about autism has improved, stereotypes about it still exist, both women said. Some people lump all children with autism into the same group, failing to distinguish their individual differences. Others assume that children with autism must have low IQs because of their inability to verbalize. Others brand children with autism as being bad kids. Autism is a spectrum, Walker said. Each child faces individual challenges. By helping children develop and use language skills, problems with behavior often are resolved, Stanford said. The Florida Autism Center of Excellence aims to help students gain academic, social and behavioral skills needed to be independent in later life. The center uses the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis a research-based strategy that has been proven to be effective for teaching students with autism. We break the goals down into small, discrete, observable steps, Stanford said. Students are given praise and reinforcement for exhibiting those steps. While many schools use a stoplight system to regulate behavior, the charter school does not. At those schools, all of the kids will start on green, Stanford said. Theres nothing they can do but go down, she said. The charter school teaches children to substitute unacceptable behaviors with acceptable choices, Stanford said. We do not use punishment, Walker said.The school uses individual language assessments to pinpoint gaps. Stanford then helps teachers write a teaching plan, and a data sheet is used to monitor how a student is faring. Parents receive monthly progress reports.The idea is to tailor instruction to meet an individual childs needs. The charter school, on Chancey Road, operates out of a number of portable classroom buildings. It has an enrollment of 18, and is continuing to accept new students until it reaches this years cap of 38. Once that happens, new students will be admitted through a lottery system. Next year, the school hopes to add middle school classes. Ultimately, it would like to have 110 students, Walker said.To be eligible, students must have a diagnosis of autism by a medical doctor or an Individual Education Plan issued by a school that states the student has autism, Walker said.She encourages families to take quick action if they believe their son or daughter has autism. The sooner a child is diagnosed, the sooner he or she can get help. You want to get them enrolled as early as possible, Walker said. Early intervention is the key. The charter school also wants to give parents support and help. Parents often feel they are being blamed for their childs behavior, Walker said. For some of them, they feel theyre being pointed at, theyre the cause, she said. This is a safe environment for them. They dont feel judged. Walker said the work she does is rewarding. I like to see the gains, Walker said, referring to the progress that students make. I like to give hope to the parents, because there is hope. FLORIDA AUTISM CENTERWHAT:Florida Autism Center of Excellence is a Pasco County Schools charter school providing services for children with autism. It serves prekindergarten through fifth grade, and hopes to add middle school classes next year.WHERE: 39735 Chancey Road, ZephyrhillsWEB: www.FACEProgram.org PHONE: (813) 395-5952 ABOUT AUTISMAs a spectrum disorder, children and adults with autism can exhibit any combination of these behaviors in any degree of severity. Some examples of behaviors a person with autism may display are: Communication: Children may have difficulty in verbal and nonverbal communication. There may be a lack of language development. Speech may be limited or disordered, or they may engage in one-sided conversations. They may have challenges with body language, facial expressions, gestures and signs. Social Interactions: Children may exhibit highly inappropriate behaviors and may show indifference to others. They may avoid affection, eye contact, and may play by themselves. Imagination: Play may be limited to one or two activities, involving repetitive actions. Playing: Children may use toys inappropriately and not for their intended purpose. Repetitive Behaviors: Children may develop ritualistic behaviors and obsessions. Autistic behaviors may include rocking, spinning, flicking hands or fingers in front of their eyes, tapping objects and mouthing objects.

Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comMaryhelen Zopfi gets a kick out of finding new uses for old stuff. The avid gardeners green thumb is on glorious display at her North Mobile Villa Drive home in Lutz, where she grows roses, orchids, crotons, fruit trees, orchids, grapevines and all sorts of other plants. But her enthusiasm for gardening is perhaps outdone by the funky stuff she has all over her place. Recent additions to her eclectic outdoor dcor include the front end of 1997 Buick that shes converted into a waterfall for her koi pond in her backyard. The pond, by the way, is a former swimming pool, which is partially covered by a deck.The deck, it turns out, is the perfect cover for the koi should a hungry bird swoop down to try to grab a quick bite to eat.The Buicks front end is raised up on blocks, spilling water through its grill into the pool below. Meanwhile, out front, Zopfi has added an old-fashioned telephone booth amidst her plants, just for fun. She also has a smaller waterfall in her front yard, which, by the way, she thinks would be a perfect candidate for the front end of a Smart car. Zopfi, who describes herself as a stay-athome gardener, always is thinking up stuff she can do to keep adding interest to her yard. Besides being full of whimsy, her yard also is environmentally friendly, too. She won Hillsborough Countys 2012 Florida-Friendly Landscape Water-Wise Award for the many water-conserving practices she observes. For instance, she catches rainfall in a barrel to water a portion of a garden. She diverts runoff from her rooftop and pipes it into areas of her garden. She also uses landscape beds to keep storm water from spilling out of her yard. And, she uses microirrigation to apply water where needed without wasteful spraying.Zopfi gets a kick out of showing off her handiwork. She welcomes garden clubs to come take a tour of her yard. Shes also been known to set up tables in her driveway, to let garden club members have a meeting and eat lunch.If your garden club would like to schedule a visit to Zopfis garden, you can email the request to mhmango@msn.com. Maryhelen Zopfi, above, has added another point of interest to her eclectic collection of yard art that embellishes her garden and koi ponds at her home in Lutz. At left, a 1997 Buick front end makes a perfect waterfall, she said. (Photos by B.C.

Castens works by day as a substitute teacher, and sees firsthand more often than not what hunger can do, especially with young minds wanting to learn. Hunger is one of the things that breaks my heart, she said. I see children who come in and say their tummy hurts because they hadnt eaten. But at least in school, they can get lunch and maybe even breakfast. But its during the breaks, like holidays, where they can really go hungry. Where they dont have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Metropolitan Ministries looks to serve just under 590,000 meals during the holiday season in Pasco, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. To achieve that, the organization is going to need literally tons of food, and every drive including the one at Keystone is essential to make that happen. The tent for Keystones food drive will go up this weekend, and it will accept donations through Thanksgiving week, primarily of frozen or nonperishable, nonexpired food items. But those not wanting to clean out the pantry or hit the grocery store on the way can also bring other donations like gift cards, personal checks, new toys and new clothes. One popular donation is frozen turkeys, which could help make a needy familys holiday truly special. Its about bringing the community together, and helping those in need, Castens said. This isnt just a Metropolitan Ministry thing. Its not just a Keystone Community Church thing. This is a community event to bring awareness of the needs in our community, and to help our neighbors when they need us the most. The event will also include live music, face painting, clowns, inflatable bounce houses, free hot dogs and cotton candy, and even a Florida Blood Bank Bloodmobile unit. lems with her knees about two years before she was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis. She was taking a dance class and one part of a routine required dancers to spring up from the floor. All of the girls were able to get off the floor with ease, Lindsey said. All except for her. She had to push herself up. When Valenti reported that Lindseys knees were swollen, it was explained away as growing pains, she said. Lindsey had back pain, which doctors said could be kidney infection. She had severe fatigue that was chalked up to her immune system condition. It took us a very long time to come to this diagnosis, Valenti said. But it didnt take as long to recognize Ashleys condition, her mom said. When Ashley complained that her foot hurt, they initially thought she had turned her ankle. When that wasnt the problem, Valenti wondered if Ashley also might have juvenile arthritis. A rheumatologist confirmed her suspicion. Many people have never even heard of juvenile arthritis, Valenti said. Often, they trivialize the condition, saying things like their grandmother or grandfather has arthritis. They dont get it. They dont understand it. This is a life-altering diagnosis, Valenti said. They look so normal and healthy, thats why we have trouble getting across to people how serious this is. The arthritis they have is aggressive and lifelong. It affects organs. It affects their heart. It causes blindness. These are things we constantly having to get checked, she said. We have a team of about seven specialists. Lindsey remembers that recently she saw her neighbors playing outside. We used to be out there with them, and now we cant, she said. It hurts to run. Wed go and play tag. We live in a lot of pain. When Lindsey wakes up in the morning, she has at least an hour of stiffness with every joint, my neck, my knees, everything. The arthritis has prompted Lindsey to be home-schooled, taking classes through Florida Virtual School. But it can be hard, because Lindsey is at an age where having a social life is important. Being out of sight means being out of mind, she said, noting aware of their options, and pursue appropriate care. Nurses seem to be the point of contact. Patients really open up to nursing, Scherer said. She also is a staunch advocate for patient rights. People are having to take more responsibility for their own health care, Scherer said. I believe people have the right to hear whats going on, honestly, with them. Unfortunately, many people find doctors to be intimidating, she said. Theres a whole generation of, Well, the doctor said Finding appropriate care is essential, but that doesnt always happen. People will shop for cars more than they will their own physician, she said. Scherers service helps people gain greater insight about their options and resources that may be available to help them. It also helps patients realize they need to advocate for their health care. I give them a voice. I say, You have every right to say what you have to say. You have every right to be heard. This is your life, she said. She believes patients want to be informed about their condition, even when the news is bad. If you arm people with education and you tell them the truth, they can handle it a lot better than if you blindside them, Scherer said. She believes her new venture is particularly timely. Right now, we have this health care system and nobody knows whats happening. Its mass chaos. Looking at how fragmented that things are right now, now is the time to help out, she said. RN Cancer Guides serves patients at any stage of their diagnosis, she said. Costs for the service vary. For newly diagnosed patients with no complications, the service is $750, which includes 10 hours of service and a doctors visit. The cost increases to $1,000 for 15 hours of service and a doctors visit, for more complicated cases, and $2,000 for up to 20 hours of service and a doctors visit for even more complex cases. Theres also an hourly consulting service available at $149 an hour. And, there are corporate programs available, too, for businesses that want to provide a cancer assistance program for their employees.When the patient is facing an important decision, the oncology nurse will accompany them on that doctor visit, Scherer said.When I go into physicians offices, I have to not be adversarial. Im supposed to be an extension of everybody, to make sure theyre all talking, Scherer said. If she wins the award on Friday, it wont be Scherers first honor. In 2005, she received a Florida Hospital Heroes Award after she and her husband, Nick, traveled to Mississippi twice in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The couple hauled a trailer full of food and supplies to dispense to storm victims. She also provided medical assistance, administering tetanus shots and helping in other ways.

Ashley will go and play with the Barbies and shell need help getting up. And, Ill sit down on the floor, and Im pulling on the chair to try to get myself up. Even getting up from a chair is sometimes hard. Ashley attends Wesley Chapel Elementary School, but is frequently out of school to attend doctors appointments and get treatments. Valenti and her husband Tony try to keep things as normal as possible for her girls. When Ashleys school had a Halloween parade, for instance, Valenti pushed her daughter around in a wheelchair so Ashley could take part. Shes fifth grade, its her last one. Were fighting to make it memorable for her because fifth grade is a big deal, Valenti said. I dont know how much more schooling shes going to be able to attend. We have some decisions to make for next year. Were probably going to have to do the virtual school as well. But its a tough choice. Shes a very social kid. Besides robbing her children of their childhood, the disease has posed challenges for the entire family, Valenti said, especially when it comes to finances. Theres the cost of medical treatment, doctor visits and medication. Theres also the cost of just driving the girls to their medical appointments, which include trips to St. Petersburg and Gainesville. We bought a brand new car in May just because we travel so much, and I already have 12,000 miles on it, Valenti said. Theyve formed a fundraising team they call the Valient Valentis, and theyve had some local events to raise money to help battle arthritis.

Quality education Affordable tuition Convenient training for careers in Health Care, Business & Technology Associate in Arts degree that transfers to Florida public universities and colleges By Sherri LononThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentTwo local residents were nominated for pilot of the year honors for their dedication to the nonprofit that flies missions of mercy throughout the Southeast. John Hanselman and David Trilling are on a mission to give back to others in need. As pilots for Angel Flight Southeast, Trilling of Lutz and Hanselman of Odessa, give their time and donate their personal aircraft and fuel to take patients in need of medical care to appointments. Whether its transporting a child to another state for cancer treatments or flying a transplant organ from a donor hospital to a patient in need, Hanselman and Trilling stand ready to answer calls for help when they arise. For their efforts, Angel Flight Southeast has nominated both Hanselman and Trilling for its pilot of the year award. The award is the highest honor Angel Flight bestows on its volunteer pilots. Angel Flight Southeast is a nonprofit humanitarian organization that serves Florida. Through a network of about 650 volunteer pilots, the agency helps those who are unable to take commercial flights whether for financial or medical reasons get to their appointments within the state, or in other states. Its part of the Air Charity Network, which logs more than 22,000 missions annually, according to Angel Flights website. Trilling won pilot of the year during a ceremony Sunday night, while Hanselman received the Above & Beyond award, given to pilots who not only volunteer their time, planes and fuel for Angel Flight missions, but also work to raise awareness for the charity, and will often help with fundraising. Hanselman and Trilling both say they are honored by the nominations and wins, but admit they dont take to the skies in hopes of earning awards. Most pilots just absolutely love to fly, and they love to fly with purpose, said Hanselman, who has been flying for Angel Flight for about a year. Hanselman first learned about the organization in the 1980s while he was working on his pilots license. He promised himself if he was ever in a position to take part, he would. When Hanselman retired and sold his stake in a business, he bought a Cessna 206h and kept that promise to himself. His first flight for the nonprofit was a year ago. For Hanselman, being a part of such a noble enterprise is reward enough. I enjoy flying, and at the same time, its giving back, he said. Trillings motivations are similar. After five years of flying, earning ratings and certificates, I wanted to use the acquired flying skills to do interesting flying as well as give back to the community, he said. Trilling learned how to fly after working 35 years in the food research and development arena. After retiring, I consulted and learned how to fly, always having been interested in planes and the magic of flight, he said.Now a flight instructor and volunteer with Angel Flight, Trilling uses his personal plane, a Mooney, to conduct missions of mercy.As for the nomination, Trilling is honored, but says that all of the pilots who contribute their time and planes for this purposes are pilots of the year. For more information about Angel Flight Southeast, visit the nonprofit online at www.AngelFlightSE.org. John Hanselman, at left, takes a moment to smile from the cockpit of his Cessna 206h before a flight.

St. Josephs Hospitals want you and your family to stay healthy this holiday season. Here are some tips to keep your health on track during the holidays and throughout the New Year. Dont Get Lost in the Hustle and Bustle of the Holiday Season Emergency Physician Charles Sand, M.D., advises folks to be careful with their heart health this holiday season. With the holidays just around the corner, people are so busy with their pre-holiday activities (shopping, traveling, and partying) that they forget to take their medicines, completely abandon their diets, drink excessively and fail to exercise at all, said Sand. This all leads to an increase of ailments including hyperglycemic episodes, uncontrolled hypertension, heart failure, heart attacks and other health emergencies. Overeating during the holidays can be especially problematic for people with diabetes. This time of year is often especially difficult for diabetics, who need to keep close tabs on their blood sugar levels and control the amount of carbohydrates they eat. Get to Know Your Family Health HistoryWith the holidays coming and families getting together, it is a great time to ask about and share your family history with those who are affected by it. Ask grandma to spill the beans. What questions should you ask? Find out if you have first degree (parent, sibling, and offspring) or second degree (grandparent, aunt, uncle or grandchild) relatives with cancer, heart disease or diabetes, said Sand. Some risk factors for certain cancers, heart disease and diabetes are similar, and you could learn a lot about your health risks by asking those around you during your next family gathering. Dont Wait Until Next Year! This is a time to continue to pay attention to your health dont wait for a monthly health observance or to make that New Years resolution. If this is the usual time for your annual mammogram, then be sure to keep that appointment! A mammogram should be number one on every womans list after turning 40. Its the best method to detect breast cancer. Another cancer thats easy to screen for is cervical cancer but only if women are screened regularly with a Pap test. Men and women 50 or over should begin screening for colorectal cancer. This easy test can save your life. Sure, the prep isnt pleasant, but the test is fast and recovery is minimal. If you have risk factors or family history you should begin screening at a younger age. One of the easiest screenings is for skin cancer and thats done at your dermatologists office. Be sure to visit your dermatologist and establish a yearly or bi-yearly screening schedule based on the advice of your physician. A yearly baseline blood sugar, cholesterol profile and blood pressure add to well-rounded preventative care. And while youre at it, dont forget your teeth, eyes and ears. 4211 Van Dyke Road Lutz StJosephsNorth.org Living Well Staying Healthy During the Holiday Season Women only Women only Private studio Private studio Gets to the root of food issues Gets to the root of food issues Friendship & camaraderie Friendship & camaraderie 1-on-1 or group training 1-on-1 or group training Fun & positive atmosphere Fun & positive atmosphere If anyone is thinking of doing this, just do it! ~ Karen Sandifer PRIVATE PERSONAL TRAINING STUDIO813.909.493924140 SR 54, Suite 103www.PureHealthStudios.com For Women Samantha Taylor Samantha Taylor Fat L oss & Fitness Expert Fat L oss & Fitness Expert Go to our website to see more inspiring pictures & videos!Do this for YOU!Karen went from a size 14 to an 8 in only 3 months!I weighed 200 and now Im under 160 lbs.!

By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comChristopher Butashs life is filled with football, from his time on his squad with Academy at the Lakes, to his extra playing time recreationally with the Lutz Chiefs. And he loves it. In fact, as long as the 13-year-old is not cooped up inside doing something, hes happy. I love being outside, Butash said after a recent practice. I love going to my friends house who has an outside basketball court. When its basketball season, we play basketball. When its football season, were out there throwing the football. That throwing and catching has helped Butash a lot. As a quarterback for the Chiefs, he scored nine touchdowns this season, seven of them in the air. And that was before he moved to the wide receiver position, where he continues to excel. And in December, hell have a chance to show those skills at a much more regional level through the Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl Week activities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando. The weeklong event includes a number of instructional camps as well as the Offense-Defense AllAmerican Bowl game that features 88 of the top high school seniors in the country.Butash joins teammates Jaxson Bless, Nick Testa and Sebastian Bove, all of whom were named All-Americans during a summer camp hosted by Offense-Defense, a South Carolina company that hosts such camps around the country.Butashs father, Michael, is a defense attorney in Lutz, while his mother Lisa works at her husbands office, and spends a lot of time volunteering as well especially for Christophers athletics. Yet all of them work to make it to the dinner table each night, in what seems to be a dying tradition elsewhere, to share valuable time with each other. Im very proud of my dad for keeping our family in shape, Christopher Butash said. My mom has to plan ahead of time for dinner, but she does it, and that keeps us together. In fact, Butash said he would like to follow his fathers footsteps and become an attorney as well, but seems more attracted to personal injury law like another football player-turned lawyer, Brad Culpepper. Where hell go to college is a question hes probably too young to answer. But Butash said hes working hard not just on the field, but also in the classroom, maintaining an A average at Academy at the Lakes, especially in his favorite class, language arts. I need to work hard, because working hard and getting good grades gets you into college to play football, and it helps get you recognized, Butash said. Bowl week in Orlando begins Dec. 30 and runs through Jan. 5. It includes plenty of practice sessions as well as parties for New Years and awards, as well as autograph signings for some of the standout senior players taking part.

(Photo courtesy of Lisa Butash)A perfect 2013 for Sunlake JVBy Michael MurilloThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentA local high school football team just completed an undefeated season in which most of the games were shutout victories. The last game was the closest, a onepoint win where the margin of victory was a blocked extra point. That capped a threegame winning streak, all on the road. They finished a perfect season, and most people had no idea they were even playing. And its all because of one word: junior. As in, junior varsity football. They dont get the crowds, the accolades or the press, but the Sunlake Seahawks went 8-0 this season, just one year after completing a 7-1 campaign. There wont be any playoffs and there are no district or regional titles to earn. But for the players, coaches and those who followed the team, theres a lot of pride in what they accomplished. It feels great. Its what we worked hard for, its what I drilled into their heads: 8-0 was the goal, and we finally reached that goal, explained Head Coach Ryan Horan. But it wasnt an easy goal to attain. Even though the games werent at the top tier of high school sports, the Seahawks certainly felt varsity-level drama this season. They avenged their only loss last year with a close 7-0 victory against the Pasco Pirates to open their schedule, and they closed it out with a win on the road against the Wiregrass Ranch Bulls, another undefeated team looking to avoid its first loss. A blocked extra point and a go-ahead touchdown later, and Sunlake had finished its season undefeated. Junior varsity football isnt usually a big draw. There might be a few fans, but often theres family, friends and a lot of empty seats. But the last game was different, because both teams wanted a perfect season. For that game there were a lot of fans in the stands and a lot of energy to motivate both teams. Believe it or not, you wouldve thought it was a varsity game, Horan said. One of those fans was a former player: Justin Hall, a freshman quarterback who played five games with Sunlakes junior varsity team before leaving the squad. His absence was justified, however he caught the eye of the varsity team and was called up for the remainder of their season. Since there are no playoffs, the real payoff for the players is the opportunity to eventually work their way up to the varsity level. Hall accomplished that after a handful of games in his first year, and he credits his experience with junior varsity football with giving him a solid foundation to compete. Even though he wasnt with the team anymore, he still had friends there and attended their remaining games to show support. I felt really good. I felt happy for them that they could pull off those last two wins, and it was good knowing that I could be part of that 8-0 season, Hall said. Freshman wide receiver Rakeem Kimme Jones grabs a pass against the River Ridge Royal Knights in a 36-0 win last September.

Your feet are the foundation of the body. A sore, cut or bruise can adversely affect your ankles, knees or hips, especially if youre changing the way you walk to keep the pressure off the problem. Minor issues can turn into major problems later on if theyre not taken care of quickly. Foot pain is an indication that something is wrong, says Dr. Trabulsi. Just like the dentist, everyone needs regular preventative checkups to avoid complications that can lead to significant problems later on especially if youre diabetic. Children are particularly at risk for foot problems. The bones in the childs foot arent fully formed until about the age of eighteen. If a child has flat feet, it is much easier to treat at a younger age. As the bones fuse, the problem may be permanent requiring more aggressive treatment. November is national diabetes month. Diabetes throws off the immune system and makes it harder for healing to occur, says Dr. Trabulsi. Diabetes can cause a condition called neuropathy which is nerve damage causing lack of sensation. Diabetes is a leading cause of nontraumatic lower limb amputations.The smaller blood vessels in the feet and legs are susceptible to blood circulation issues. People with diabetes or coronary heart problems need to pay particular attention to their feet. Keeping the weight off is also a big issue, especially for diabetics. Dr. Trabulsi provides foot and ankle care for children through senior adults. He has been providing this service to the area for eight years now. He and his family reside in Land O Lakes.He graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2002. After completing his residency in 2004, he moved to Florida to be near his wifes family. Hes originally a resident of New York City and still has family living there. He and his wife have been married for 20 years. In his spare time he enjoys playing golf.Podiatry is Dr. Trabulsis second career. Before this he was a paramedic. I wanted to further my medical career and podiatry seemed like a good fit, says Dr. Trabulsi. I saw a definite need for this type of care.Dr. Trabulsi has office hours on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. He can usually get people in the same day and has good rates for those without insurance. He has good rapport with local primary care physicians and is affiliated with Florida Hospital Tampa. From paramedic to foot and ankle physician William Trabulsi, D.P.M.Podiatric Physician 813-406-4806Located at the Greystone Professional Park 19013 Dale Mabry Hwy N., Lutz

But Castens and other members of Keystone knew they could do more. Last year, Castens and her team started Fun Feeds Pasco, a food drive kickoff event that turned making a donation into a festival. And thanks to the success of that event, Keystone will do it again this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. “I don’t have the exact number in front of me, but we brought in three times as much food as we normally do during the festival last year,” said Castens, who has attended Keystone with her family for the last six years. “So we decided to do it again this year, and this time we’ve got even more activities for Gaynor Dietz poses with some of the turkeys donated during last year’s food drives that helps Metropolitan Ministries feed hungry families during the holiday through Keystone Community Church. (Photos courtesy of Adrienne Castens)By B.C. Manion b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m At first blush, Lindsey and Ashley Valenti look like typical preteenage girls. They enjoy doing typical preteen things: Going to Disney theme parks, attending birthday parties and playing. But doing even these simple things is difficult for the Wesley Chapel girls, as they both suffer from juvenile arthritis. Still, they keep an upbeat attitude, which their mom, Mary Valenti, said is probably one of the reasons they’ve been chosen as the child honorees for Tampa’s Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell Run/Walk. The event is set for Dec. 21 at the Dale Mabry campus of Hillsborough County Community College. Besides a 5-kilometer and one-mile run, there also will be activities for kids, a silent auction and awards. Valenti is pleased that her daughters were selected for the honor because she thinks it’s important to spread the word about juvenile arthritis, a condition she believes is often misunderstood. Both girls — who also require a monthly infusion of antibodies because of an immune system condition called specific antibody deficiency — were diagnosed in 2010, but Valenti suspects that they had the condition much longer. Lindsey, 12, said she began noticing probAshley Valenti, left, and her sister Lindsey have been selected as the child honorees for the Tampa Bay Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Walk/Run event in December. Both girls have had to curtail many of the activities they enjoy because of the pain they suffer from juvenile arthritis. (Photo by B.C. Manion)Food drive kicks off with festivalYoung girls keep smiling through arthritis painBy B.C. Manion b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m Susan Scherer — one of four finalists for a national nursing honor — wants to help patients understand their medical conditions and to obtain the most appropriate care. Scherer will find out Friday if she received the 2013 Oncology Nurse Excellence award from the Academy of Oncology Nurse Navigators when they meet in Memphis, Tenn. Scherer is gratified to be recognized as being among the nation’s leading oncology nurses, but she is even more excited about a business she has launched that will serve patients in a new way: RN Cancer Guides. It pairs oncology nurses with cancer patients to help the patients gain a better understanding of their medical condition, and to be better equipped to manage their care. It’s a unique approach, Scherer said, noting “it’s never been done.” The company is in its infancy, but the Land O’ Lakes nurse foresees vast potential for expansion, as there is no shortage of a need for the services her company provides. In a nutshell, RN Cancer Guides provides a nursing expert to review a patient’s medical records and medications, and to accompany a patient on important doctor visits when patients are at a decision point in their care. They also help patients become aware of resources that may be available to help them reduce medication and medical service charges, or to help cover those costs. Prior to launching her business this summer, Scherer worked as a nurse at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute. Before that, she was a nurse in Minnesota where she suffered a stroke. That gave her a greater affinity for working with patients with neurological conditions. Scherer’s goal is to help patients learn enough to handle their health care issues on their own, but she said most people are not equipped to deal with the complex issues that confront cancer patients. On top of that, patients generally are grappling with emotional and financial pressures, as well as impacts their conditions have on their work and family lives. She believes oncology nurses are in a unique position to help cancer patients understand their condition, become more Susan Scherer, a nurse who lives in Land O’ Lakes, has created a business called RN Cancer Guides. It pairs an oncology nurse with a patient to help the patient gain a clearer understanding of complex medical issues as well as the complicated medical system. (Photo by B.C.

John Legg, RLutz, is suggesting a “tech surge” concentration for education. And Florida can help. “Our nation, indeed global economy, has dramatically changed, and individuals that have digital and technological skills are, and will continue to be, in demand,” Legg said in a release. Nationwide there is expected to be a 50 percent to 60 percent shortage of skilled workers in the technology field by 2018, Legg said. Yet, a report last year by Cyberstate ranks Florida first in computer training, second in space and defense hightechnology industries, third in engineering services, fourth in Internet and telecommunications services, and fifth in technology employment. “It is imperative that our education system equips Florida’s students with fluent digital and technological skills so they will be the leaders of this changing economy,” Legg said. “Many of Florida’s business and education leaders have seen firsthand the need for policies and investment in technology in our schools.” The Legislature has adopted policies that promote elementary school cyber security programs, middle school digital arts certification, and industry certifications as a substitute for rigorous high school graduation requirements, said Legg, who spent more than 10 years in the classroom as a certified teacher before entering politics. “We must continue to march swiftly to excellence by equipping our students with the skills they need in order to lead in an ever-increasing digital economy,” he said.Legg wants ‘tech surge’ to target education A young Cub Scout carries the American flag during the parade.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Porter Campus aims to become hub of academic activityBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Deja Ventura couldn’t be more excited about the January opening of Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel. The new campus — PHCC’s fifth — will make life much easier for Ventura, a student at the college. “I can’t wait,” she said. Ventura and others attended an information session last week in a conference room at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. There, faculty and administration for the new campus gave the crowd a virtual tour of the new facility, and shared their aspirations for the quality of education it will bring to its students. Having a campus in Wesley Chapel will reduce Ventura’s commuting time for school by two hours, she said. It takes the 20-yearold an hour to drive each way to her classes now at PHCC’s New Port Richey campus. Ventura’s also pleased that the new campus is near Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, where Ventura eventually wants to work. The Wiregrass Ranch High School graduate said she was a patient at the hospital, and the positive experience she had there helped seal her decision to pursue a nursing degree. Julio Rivera, an employee in the hospital’s cafeteria, is also looking forward to the opening of the new campus, as he pursues classes in information technology. “I live five to 10 minutes from here,” he said. “I drive by here all of the time.” Rivera said. Stan Giannet, provost of Porter Campus, was enthusiastic about what the school intends to offer its students. “We’re very fired up,” Giannet said, noting that PHCC expects to branch into four-year degree programs next year, with bachelor’s degrees in nursing as well as supervision and management. The community college has received approvals from the state for the programs and is awaiting approval on its application for accreditation for the programs. Once that clears, PHCC plans to change its name to Pasco-Hernando State College. The four-year programs are slated to begin in fall of 2014. Porter Campus also plans to be the only PHCC location to offer two new certification programs that the college will launch in 2014. Those certification programs are for surgical and pharmacy technicians, both fields where workers are in high demand. One of the college’s missions is to help address workplace needs. “We want to be at the table to offer some solutions,” Giannet said. The new campus is well equipped to serve student needs, Giannet said. It has a seven-story building, which includes four stories of classrooms on top of a three-story parking deck. Beyond traditional classrooms, it also has nursing, computer and science labs as well as a two-story library. The nursing labs are so current that the mannequins used there can breathe and talk. The campus also features two outdoor plaza areas, which Giannet believes will be popular places for people to congregate, for academic discussions and social gatherings. He aspires to make the new campus an intellectual, cultural and community hub. “We want to make it a vibrant campus for this community,” Giannet said. The campus doesn’t have a cafeteria, but Giannet said students, staff and faculty members have many dining opportunities nearby. “It’s so ideally situated in the heart of Wesley Chapel. There are restaurants that are peppering this entire area,” he said, adding that the library will have a coffee shop. Besides offering a wide variety of programs, the college is committed to helping its students succeed, Giannet said. “You are not a number. You are known. This is the kind of climate we are going to have at Porter Campus at Wiregrass,” Giannet said. Courses will be offered in a variety of ways. Some will be taught in the traditional mode of a teacher delivering face-to-face instruction. Some will be offered online. Some will be a combination of both. Pam Medley, the assistant dean of student development, said the college wants to help students get the classes they need. Those transferring in must be sure to get their transcripts, to help them during the enrollment process, she said. Unofficial records can be used during the registration process, but official records are needed to release financial aid. It’s also important for high school graduates to be aware that they can enroll as early as May for classes that begin in August. The college will work closely with high schools for dual enrollment, where high school students can earn college credits, Medley said. She expects those relationships to be especially close between the college and Wiregrass Ranch High School, which is across the street from the new campus, and with Wesley Chapel High School, which is nearby.The college also has a Teaching-Learning Center, which is committed to helping students achieve their potential. The idea is to help students engage in learning, whether they are tackling a complex research project or struggling to stay on pace, said Natalie Epo, coordinator of the Teaching-Learning Center. Classes at Porter Campus are set to begin Jan. 13. For more information, visit the school’s website at www.PHCC.edu. Stan Giannet, at left, provost at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, looks forward to creating a sense of community on campus and connections with the community it serves. Deja Ventura, at right, can’t wait for the shorter commute that she’ll have when she begins classes at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in January.(Photos by B.C. Manion)

I shared with you that Andy and Erin were planning to marry next November after Andy returned from his upcoming deployment to Afghanistan. Well, a lot has happened since then. As you can see by the accompanying photo, Andy and Erin decided not to wait until 2014, and were wed earlier this month in a chapel on the base at Camp Lejeune, N.C. It was a lovely wedding on a beautiful autumn day, with fallen leaves carpeting the walk from the church, and branches laden with red, orange and yellow foliage perfectly framing their photos. The bride was gorgeous in a classic satin dress, and the groom stunning in his formal officer uniform. Andy proudly wore his white cover (as U.S. Marines call their hats) and playfully plopped it on his bride’s head after the ceremony — a bit like Richard Gere and Debra Winger in “An Officer and a Gentleman.” Witnessing this joyous event was immediate family only — mothers, fathers, sisters, brother, sister-in-law and one first cousin. Between both families there were just nine of us — 11 including the bride and groom. The wedding was intimate and deeply personal, with Andy and Erin focusing 100 percent on each other and their vows. There was none of the stress usually associated with getting married because there were no guests to greet and no reception to worry about. Andy and Erin shared their commitment with their closest family members, those who have loved them since the day they were born, or younger siblings who never knew life without them. Everyone else — grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends — will have to wait until Nov. 8, 2014. That’s when Andy and Erin will renew their vows in the church where Erin grew up in Appleton, Wis. Together we will celebrate their union with a traditional Midwestern reception in a spacious hall overlooking the Fox River. I’m still not sure exactly how this accelerated wedding came to be. Shortly after becoming engaged, Andy left for a month of training in southern California. While still out West, he called to tell me that he and Erin had decided to get married before he deployed instead of waiting another year. So with the blessings of their priest and their parents, Andy and Erin began planning their wedding, and were married four weeks later. It was surreal how the wedding details fell into place so easily and beautifully. Even the weather was perfect. As I write this column, I’ve been back in Land O’ Lakes for three days and am still getting used to the idea of a married son and a new daughter-in-law. Of course I am thrilled, but it is an adjustment — one of those transitional times most parents experience as their child embarks on a new life path quite separate from their own. And, of course, this is the way it is meant to be: “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh,” Ephesians 5:31-33 I never gave much thought to this Biblical verse until Andy’s wedding. But now it resonates loudly, as it does undoubtedly for all parents who have witnessed their son become a husband, or their daughter become a wife. My son becomes a husband PUBLISHER’S COLUMN Andy Mathes, son of The Laker/Lutz News publisher Diane Kortus, married Erin Morgan on Nov. 2 in Camp Lejeune, N.C.

The new owner is Florida-LTC Inc., according to Pasco County property records, a company out of Westlake, Calif., that shares the same address and management staff as LTC Properties Inc. The larger company makes a business of acquiring properties around the country that already have existing leases with long-term care providers, according to the company’s website. The sale is the largest in Pasco County this year, according to the Pasco County Property Appraiser’s office. It tops the $12 million spent to acquire Sweetwater Apartments outside of Dade City and the $10.4 million purchase of a CVS Pharmacy site on State Road 54 in New Port Richey, both in September. Trinity Regional Rehab provides physical, occupational and speech therapies in its 120-bed facility, located two miles west of Trinity Medical Center. It was built in 2008 as a replacement to the Tarpon Health Rehab Center located seven miles south in Pinellas County. Original construction costs were $11.1 million, according to a report filed ahead of its construction with Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration. The facility was built by Pasco Health Investors LLC of Roanoke, Va., and leased to Eastlake Rehab & Care Center LLC of Clearwater. LTC Properties owns nine assisted living facilities and four other medical facilities in Florida. Last year, LTC purchased nine facilities across the country for $166.8 million, according to corporate filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Manion b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m Children with autism often are unable to say what they need or want, said Carrie Walker.She’s the director of Florida Autism Center of Excellence, a Pasco County charter school that opened this year in Zephyrhills.“They’re hungry. They’re sleepy. They can’t express when they’re hurting,” Walker said. That inability to communicate can cause frustrations, which boil over into behavior problems, Walker added. So, it’s essential to help them learn that their voice is a tool to help them get what they need or want. “You want to focus on the language first,” said Claire Stanford, a board-certified behavior analyst who works with children at the charter school for prekindergarten through fifth-grade students. Although public awareness about autism has improved, stereotypes about it still exist, both women said. Some people lump all children with autism into the same group, failing to distinguish their individual differences. Others assume that children with autism must have low IQs because of their inability to verbalize. Others brand children with autism as being bad kids. “Autism is a spectrum,” Walker said. Each child faces individual challenges. By helping children develop and use language skills, problems with behavior often are resolved, Stanford said. The Florida Autism Center of Excellence aims to help students gain academic, social and behavioral skills needed to be independent in later life. The center uses the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis — a research-based strategy that has been proven to be effective for teaching students with autism. “We break the goals down into small, discrete, observable steps,” Stanford said. Students are given praise and reinforcement for exhibiting those steps. While many schools use a stoplight system to regulate behavior, the charter school does not. At those schools, all of the kids will start on green, Stanford said. “There’s nothing they can do but go down,” she said. The charter school teaches children to substitute unacceptable behaviors with acceptable choices, Stanford said. “We do not use punishment,” Walker said.The school uses individual language assessments to pinpoint gaps. Stanford then helps teachers write a teaching plan, and a data sheet is used to monitor how a student is faring. Parents receive monthly progress reports.The idea is to tailor instruction to meet an individual child’s needs. The charter school, on Chancey Road, operates out of a number of portable classroom buildings. It has an enrollment of 18, and is continuing to accept new students until it reaches this year’s cap of 38. Once that happens, new students will be admitted through a lottery system. Next year, the school hopes to add middle school classes. Ultimately, it would like to have 110 students, Walker said.To be eligible, students must have a diagnosis of autism by a medical doctor or an Individual Education Plan issued by a school that states the student has autism, Walker said.She encourages families to take quick action if they believe their son or daughter has autism. The sooner a child is diagnosed, the sooner he or she can get help. “You want to get them enrolled as early as possible,” Walker said. “Early intervention is the key.” The charter school also wants to give parents support and help. Parents often feel they are being blamed for their child’s behavior, Walker said. “For some of them, they feel they’re being pointed at, they’re the cause,” she said. “This is a safe environment for them. They don’t feel judged.” Walker said the work she does is rewarding. “I like to see the gains,” Walker said, referring to the progress that students make. “I like to give hope to the parents, because there is hope.” FLORIDA AUTISM CENTERWHAT:Florida Autism Center of Excellence is a Pasco County Schools charter school providing services for children with autism.

Some examples of behaviors a person with autism may display are:  Communication: Children may have difficulty in verbal and nonverbal communication. There may be a lack of language development. Speech may be limited or disordered, or they may engage in one-sided conversations. They may have challenges with body language, facial expressions, gestures and signs.  Social Interactions: Children may exhibit highly inappropriate behaviors and may show indifference to others.

Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Maryhelen Zopfi gets a kick out of finding new uses for old stuff. The avid gardener’s green thumb is on glorious display at her North Mobile Villa Drive home in Lutz, where she grows roses, orchids, crotons, fruit trees, orchids, grapevines and all sorts of other plants. But her enthusiasm for gardening is perhaps outdone by the funky stuff she has all over her place. Recent additions to her eclectic outdoor dcor include the front end of 1997 Buick that she’s converted into a waterfall for her koi pond in her backyard. The pond, by the way, is a former swimming pool, which is partially covered by a deck.The deck, it turns out, is the perfect cover for the koi — should a hungry bird swoop down to try to grab a quick bite to eat.The Buick’s front end is raised up on blocks, spilling water through its grill into the pool below. Meanwhile, out front, Zopfi has added an old-fashioned telephone booth amidst her plants, just for fun. She also has a smaller waterfall in her front yard, which, by the way, she thinks would be a perfect candidate for the front end of a Smart car. Zopfi, who describes herself as a “stay-athome gardener,” always is thinking up stuff she can do to keep adding interest to her yard. Besides being full of whimsy, her yard also is environmentally friendly, too. She won Hillsborough County’s 2012 Florida-Friendly Landscape Water-Wise Award for the many water-conserving practices she observes. For instance, she catches rainfall in a barrel to water a portion of a garden. She diverts runoff from her rooftop and pipes it into areas of her garden. She also uses landscape beds to keep storm water from spilling out of her yard. And, she uses microirrigation to apply water where needed without wasteful spraying.Zopfi gets a kick out of showing off her handiwork. She welcomes garden clubs to come take a tour of her yard. She’s also been known to set up tables in her driveway, to let garden club members have a meeting and eat lunch.If your garden club would like to schedule a visit to Zopfi’s garden, you can email the request to mhmango@msn.com. Maryhelen Zopfi, above, has added another point of interest to her eclectic collection of yard art that embellishes her garden and koi ponds at her home in Lutz. At left, a 1997 Buick front end makes a perfect waterfall, she said. (Photos by B.C.

But at least in school, they can get lunch and maybe even breakfast. But it’s during the breaks, like holidays, where they can really go hungry. Where they don’t have breakfast, lunch or dinner.” Metropolitan Ministries looks to serve just under 590,000 meals during the holiday season in Pasco, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. To achieve that, the organization is going to need literally tons of food, and every drive — including the one at Keystone — is essential to make that happen. The tent for Keystone’s food drive will go up this weekend, and it will accept donations through Thanksgiving week, primarily of frozen or nonperishable, nonexpired food items. But those not wanting to clean out the pantry or hit the grocery store on the way can also bring other donations like gift cards, personal checks, new toys and new clothes. One popular donation is frozen turkeys, which could help make a needy family’s holiday truly special. “It’s about bringing the community together, and helping those in need,” Castens said. “This isn’t just a Metropolitan Ministry thing. It’s not just a Keystone Community Church thing. This is a community event to bring awareness of the needs in our community, and to help our neighbors when they need us the most.” The event will also include live music, face painting, clowns, inflatable bounce houses, free hot dogs and cotton candy, and even a Florida Blood Bank Bloodmobile unit. lems with her knees about two years before she was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis. She was taking a dance class and one part of a routine required dancers to spring up from the floor. “All of the girls were able to get off the floor with ease,” Lindsey said. All except for her. She had to push herself up. When Valenti reported that Lindsey’s knees were swollen, it was explained away as “growing pains,” she said. Lindsey had back pain, which doctors said could be kidney infection. She had severe fatigue that was chalked up to her immune system condition. “It took us a very long time to come to this diagnosis,” Valenti said. But it didn’t take as long to recognize Ashley’s condition, her mom said. When Ashley complained that her foot hurt, they initially thought she had turned her ankle. When that wasn’t the problem, Valenti wondered if Ashley also might have juvenile arthritis. A rheumatologist confirmed her suspicion. Many people have never even heard of juvenile arthritis, Valenti said. Often, they trivialize the condition, saying things like their grandmother or grandfather has arthritis. “They don’t get it. They don’t understand it. This is a life-altering diagnosis,” Valenti said. “They look so normal and healthy, that’s why we have trouble getting across to people how serious this is.” The arthritis they have is aggressive and lifelong. It affects organs. It affects their heart. It causes blindness. “These are things we constantly having to get checked,” she said. “We have a team of about seven specialists.” Lindsey remembers that recently she saw her neighbors playing outside. “We used to be out there with them, and now we can’t,” she said. “It hurts to run. We’d go and play tag. We live in a lot of pain.” When Lindsey wakes up in the morning, she has at least an hour of stiffness “with every joint, my neck, my knees, everything.” The arthritis has prompted Lindsey to be home-schooled, taking classes through Florida Virtual School. But it can be hard, because Lindsey is at an age where having a social life is important. Being out of sight means being out of mind, she said, noting aware of their options, and pursue appropriate care. “Nurses seem to be the point of contact. Patients really open up to nursing,” Scherer said. She also is a staunch advocate for patient rights. “People are having to take more responsibility for their own health care,” Scherer said. “I believe people have the right to hear what’s going on, honestly, with them.” Unfortunately, many people find doctors to be intimidating, she said. “There’s a whole generation of, ‘Well, the doctor said …’” Finding appropriate care is essential, but that doesn’t always happen. “People will shop for cars more than they will their own physician,” she said. Scherer’s service helps people gain greater insight about their options and resources that may be available to help them. It also helps patients realize they need to advocate for their health care. “I give them a voice. I say, ‘You have every right to say what you have to say. You have every right to be heard. This is your life,’” she said. She believes patients want to be informed about their condition, — even when the news is bad. “If you arm people with education and you tell them the truth, they can handle it a lot better than if you blindside them,” Scherer said. She believes her new venture is particularly timely. “Right now, we have this health care system and nobody knows what’s happening. It’s mass chaos. Looking at how fragmented that things are right now, now is the time to help out,” she said. RN Cancer Guides serves patients at any stage of their diagnosis, she said. Costs for the service vary. For newly diagnosed patients with no complications, the service is $750, which includes 10 hours of service and a doctor’s visit. The cost increases to $1,000 for 15 hours of service and a doctor’s visit, for more complicated cases, and $2,000 for up to 20 hours of service and a doctor’s visit for even more complex cases. There’s also an hourly consulting service available at $149 an hour. And, there are corporate programs available, too, for businesses that want to provide a cancer assistance program for their employees.When the patient is facing an important decision, the oncology nurse will accompany them on that doctor visit, Scherer said.“When I go into physicians’ offices, I have to not be adversarial. I’m supposed to be an extension of everybody, to make sure they’re all talking,” Scherer said. If she wins the award on Friday, it won’t be Scherer’s first honor. In 2005, she received a Florida Hospital Heroes Award after she and her husband, Nick, traveled to Mississippi twice in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The couple hauled a trailer full of food and supplies to dispense to storm victims. She also provided medical assistance, administering tetanus shots and helping in other ways.

And, I’ll sit down on the floor, and I’m pulling on the chair to try to get myself up. Even getting up from a chair is sometimes hard.” Ashley attends Wesley Chapel Elementary School, but is frequently out of school to attend doctor’s appointments and get treatments. Valenti and her husband Tony try to keep things as normal as possible for her girls. When Ashley’s school had a Halloween parade, for instance, Valenti pushed her daughter around in a wheelchair so Ashley could take part. “She’s fifth grade, it’s her last one. We’re fighting to make it memorable for her because fifth grade is a big deal,” Valenti said. “I don’t know how much more schooling she’s going to be able to attend. We have some decisions to make for next year. We’re probably going to have to do the virtual school as well. But it’s a tough choice. She’s a very social kid.” Besides robbing her children of their childhood, the disease has posed challenges for the entire family, Valenti said, especially when it comes to finances. There’s the cost of medical treatment, doctor visits and medication. There’s also the cost of just driving the girls to their medical appointments, which include trips to St. Petersburg and Gainesville. “We bought a brand new car in May just because we travel so much, and I already have 12,000 miles on it,” Valenti said. They’ve formed a fundraising team they call the Valient Valentis, and they’ve had some local events to raise money to help battle arthritis. They’re determined to do what they can to help their daughters and others who suffer from juvenile arthritis.

John Hanselman and David Trilling are on a mission to give back to others in need. As pilots for Angel Flight Southeast, Trilling of Lutz and Hanselman of Odessa, give their time and donate their personal aircraft and fuel to take patients in need of medical care to appointments. Whether it’s transporting a child to another state for cancer treatments or flying a transplant organ from a donor hospital to a patient in need, Hanselman and Trilling stand ready to answer calls for help when they arise. For their efforts, Angel Flight Southeast has nominated both Hanselman and Trilling for its pilot of the year award. The award is the highest honor Angel Flight bestows on its volunteer pilots. Angel Flight Southeast is a nonprofit humanitarian organization that serves Florida. Through a network of about 650 volunteer pilots, the agency helps those who are unable to take commercial flights — whether for financial or medical reasons — get to their appointments within the state, or in other states. It’s part of the Air Charity Network, which logs more than 22,000 missions annually, according to Angel Flight’s website. Trilling won pilot of the year during a ceremony Sunday night, while Hanselman received the “Above & Beyond” award, given to pilots who not only volunteer their time, planes and fuel for Angel Flight missions, but also work to raise awareness for the charity, and will often help with fundraising. Hanselman and Trilling both say they are honored by the nominations and wins, but admit they don’t take to the skies in hopes of earning awards. “Most pilots just absolutely love to fly, and they love to fly with purpose,” said Hanselman, who has been flying for Angel Flight for about a year. Hanselman first learned about the organization in the 1980s while he was working on his pilot’s license. He promised himself if he was ever in a position to take part, he would. When Hanselman retired and sold his stake in a business, he bought a Cessna 206h and kept that promise to himself. His first flight for the nonprofit was a year ago. For Hanselman, being a part of such a “noble enterprise” is reward enough. “I enjoy flying, and at the same time, it’s giving back,” he said. Trilling’s motivations are similar. “After five years of flying, earning ratings and certificates, I wanted to use the acquired flying skills to do interesting flying as well as give back to the community,” he said. Trilling learned how to fly after working 35 years in the food research and development arena. “After retiring, I consulted and learned how to fly, always having been interested in planes and the magic of flight,” he said.Now a flight instructor and volunteer with Angel Flight, Trilling uses his personal plane, a Mooney, to conduct missions of mercy.As for the nomination, Trilling is honored, but says that “all of the pilots who contribute their time and planes for this purposes are pilots of the year.” For more information about Angel Flight Southeast, visit the nonprofit online at www.AngelFlightSE.org.They fly the friendly skies to help those in need John Hanselman, at left, takes a moment to smile from the cockpit of his Cessna 206h before a flight.

St. Josephs Hospitals want you and your family to stay healthy this holiday season. Here are some tips to keep your health on track during the holidays … and throughout the New Year. Dont Get Lost in the Hustle and Bustle of the Holiday Season Emergency Physician Charles Sand, M.D., advises folks to be careful with their heart health this holiday season. With the holidays just around the corner, people are so busy with their pre-holiday activities (shopping, traveling, and partying) that they forget to take their medicines, completely abandon their diets, drink excessively and fail to exercise at all,Ž said Sand. This all leads to an increase of ailments including hyperglycemic episodes, uncontrolled hypertension, heart failure, heart attacks and other health emergencies.Ž Overeating during the holidays can be especially problematic for people with diabetes. This time of year is often especially difficult for diabetics, who need to keep close tabs on their blood sugar levels and control the amount of carbohydrates they eat. Get to Know Your Family Health HistoryWith the holidays coming and families getting together, it is a great time to ask about and share your family history with those who are affected by it. Ask grandma to spill the beans. What questions should you ask? Find out if you have first degree (parent, sibling, and offspring) or second degree (grandparent, aunt, uncle or grandchild) relatives with cancer, heart disease or diabetes,Ž said Sand. Some risk factors for certain cancers, heart disease and diabetes are similar, and you could learn a lot about your health risks by asking those around you during your next family gathering.Ž Dont Wait Until Next Year! This is a time to continue to pay attention to your health … dont wait for a monthly health observance or to make that New Years resolution. If this is the usual time for your annual mammogram, then be sure to keep that appointment! A mammogram should be number one on every womans list after turning 40. Its the best method to detect breast cancer. Another cancer thats easy to screen for is cervical cancer … but only if women are screened regularly with a Pap test. Men and women 50 or over should begin screening for colorectal cancer. This easy test can save your life. Sure, the prep isnt pleasant, but the test is fast and recovery is minimal. If you have risk factors or family history you should begin screening at a younger age. One of the easiest screenings is for skin cancer and thats done at your dermatologists office. Be sure to visit your dermatologist and establish a yearly or bi-yearly screening schedule based on the advice of your physician. A yearly baseline blood sugar, cholesterol profile and blood pressure add to well-rounded preventative care. And while youre at it, dont forget your teeth, eyes and ears. 4211 Van Dyke Road  Lutz StJosephsNorth.org Living Well Staying Healthy During the Holiday Season Women only Women only Private studio Private studio Gets to the root of food issues Gets to the root of food issues Friendship & camaraderie Friendship & camaraderie 1-on-1 or group training 1-on-1 or group training Fun & positive atmosphere Fun & positive atmosphere If anyone is thinking of doing this, just do it!Ž ~ Karen Sandifer PRIVATE PERSONAL TRAINING STUDIO8 1 3.909.493924 1 40 SR 54, S uite 1 03www.PureHealthStudios.com For Women Samantha Taylor Samantha Taylor Fat L oss & Fitness Ex pert Fat L oss & Fitness Ex pert Go to our website to see more inspiring pictures & videos! Do this for YOU!ŽKaren went from a size 14 to an 8 in only 3 months!“I weighed 200 and now I’m under 160 lbs.!

By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com Christopher Butash’s life is filled with football, from his time on his squad with Academy at the Lakes, to his extra playing time recreationally with the Lutz Chiefs. And he loves it. In fact, as long as the 13-year-old is not cooped up inside doing something, he’s happy. “I love being outside,” Butash said after a recent practice. “I love going to my friend’s house who has an outside basketball court. When it’s basketball season, we play basketball. When it’s football season, we’re out there throwing the football.” That throwing and catching has helped Butash a lot. As a quarterback for the Chiefs, he scored nine touchdowns this season, seven of them in the air. And that was before he moved to the wide receiver position, where he continues to excel. And in December, he’ll have a chance to show those skills at a much more regional level through the Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl Week activities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando. The weeklong event includes a number of instructional camps as well as the Offense-Defense AllAmerican Bowl game that features 88 of the top high school seniors in the country.Butash joins teammates Jaxson Bless, Nick Testa and Sebastian Bove, all of whom were named All-Americans during a summer camp hosted by Offense-Defense, a South Carolina company that hosts such camps around the country.Butash’s father, Michael, is a defense attorney in Lutz, while his mother Lisa works at her husband’s office, and spends a lot of time volunteering as well — especially for Christopher’s athletics. Yet all of them work to make it to the dinner table each night, in what seems to be a dying tradition elsewhere, to share valuable time with each other. “I’m very proud of my dad for keeping our family in shape,” Christopher Butash said. “My mom has to plan ahead of time for dinner, but she does it, and that keeps us together.” In fact, Butash said he would like to follow his father’s footsteps and become an attorney as well, but seems more attracted to personal injury law like another football player-turned lawyer, Brad Culpepper. Where he’ll go to college is a question he’s probably too young to answer. But Butash said he’s working hard not just on the field, but also in the classroom, maintaining an A average at Academy at the Lakes, especially in his favorite class, language arts. “I need to work hard, because working hard and getting good grades gets you into college to play football, and it helps get you recognized,” Butash said. Bowl week in Orlando begins Dec. 30 and runs through Jan. 5. It includes plenty of practice sessions as well as parties for New Year’s and awards, as well as autograph signings for some of the standout senior players taking part.

(Photo courtesy of Lisa Butash)A perfect 2013 for Sunlake JVBy Michael Murillo The Laker/Lutz News Correspondent A local high school football team just completed an undefeated season in which most of the games were shutout victories. The last game was the closest, a onepoint win where the margin of victory was a blocked extra point. That capped a threegame winning streak, all on the road. They finished a perfect season, and most people had no idea they were even playing. And it’s all because of one word: “junior.” As in, junior varsity football. They don’t get the crowds, the accolades or the press, but the Sunlake Seahawks went 8-0 this season, just one year after completing a 7-1 campaign. There won’t be any playoffs and there are no district or regional titles to earn. But for the players, coaches and those who followed the team, there’s a lot of pride in what they accomplished. “It feels great. It’s what we worked hard for, it’s what I drilled into their heads: 8-0 was the goal, and we finally reached that goal,” explained Head Coach Ryan Horan. But it wasn’t an easy goal to attain. Even though the games weren’t at the top tier of high school sports, the Seahawks certainly felt varsity-level drama this season. They avenged their only loss last year with a close 7-0 victory against the Pasco Pirates to open their schedule, and they closed it out with a win on the road against the Wiregrass Ranch Bulls, another undefeated team looking to avoid its first loss. A blocked extra point and a go-ahead touchdown later, and Sunlake had finished its season undefeated. Junior varsity football isn’t usually a big draw. There might be a few fans, but often there’s family, friends and a lot of empty seats. But the last game was different, because both teams wanted a perfect season. For that game there were a lot of fans in the stands and a lot of energy to motivate both teams. “Believe it or not, you would’ve thought it was a varsity game,” Horan said. One of those fans was a former player: Justin Hall, a freshman quarterback who played five games with Sunlake’s junior varsity team before leaving the squad. His absence was justified, however — he caught the eye of the varsity team and was called up for the remainder of their season. Since there are no playoffs, the real payoff for the players is the opportunity to eventually work their way up to the varsity level. Hall accomplished that after a handful of games in his first year, and he credits his experience with junior varsity football with giving him a solid foundation to compete. Even though he wasn’t with the team anymore, he still had friends there and attended their remaining games to show support. “I felt really good. I felt happy for them that they could pull off those last two wins, and it was good knowing that I could be part of that 8-0 season,” Hall said. Freshman wide receiver Rakeem ‘Kimme’ Jones grabs a pass against the River Ridge Royal Knights in a 36-0 win last September.

Your feet are the foundation of the body. A sore, cut or bruise can adversely affect your ankles, knees or hips, especially if youre changing the way you walk to keep the pressure off the problem. Minor issues can turn into major problems later on if theyre not taken care of quickly. Foot pain is an indication that something is wrong,Ž says Dr. Trabulsi. Just like the dentist, everyone needs regular preventative checkups to avoid complications that can lead to significant problems later on especially if youre diabetic. Children are particularly at risk for foot problems. The bones in the childs foot arent fully formed until about the age of eighteen. If a child has flat feet, it is much easier to treat at a younger age. As the bones fuse, the problem may be permanent requiring more aggressive treatment. November is national diabetes month. Diabetes throws off the immune system and makes it harder for healing to occur,Ž says Dr. Trabulsi. Diabetes can cause a condition called neuropathy which is nerve damage causing lack of sensation.Ž Diabetes is a leading cause of nontraumatic lower limb amputations.The smaller blood vessels in the feet and legs are susceptible to blood circulation issues. People with diabetes or coronary heart problems need to pay particular attention to their feet. Keeping the weight off is also a big issue, especially for diabetics. Dr. Trabulsi provides foot and ankle care for children through senior adults. He has been providing this service to the area for eight years now. He and his family reside in Land O Lakes.He graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2002. After completing his residency in 2004, he moved to Florida to be near his wifes family. Hes originally a resident of New York City and still has family living there. He and his wife have been married for 20 years. In his spare time he enjoys playing golf.Podiatry is Dr. Trabulsis second career. Before this he was a paramedic. I wanted to further my medical career and podiatry seemed like a good fit,Ž says Dr. Trabulsi. I saw a definite need for this type of care.ŽDr. Trabulsi has office hours on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. He can usually get people in the same day and has good rates for those without insurance. He has good rapport with local primary care physicians and is affiliated with Florida Hospital Tampa. From paramedic to foot and ankle physician William Trabulsi, D.P.M.Podiatric Physician 813-406-4806Located at the Greystone Professional Park 19013 Dale Mabry Hwy N., Lutz
