Hearing Aid Study Participants Sought EARZ EARZ TM TM TM LEND YOUR B INSIDE PAGE 1B By Michael Hinman firstname.lastname@example.org A state regulatory agency ordered the company to refund $54 million to customers last week, yet many Duke Energy customers remain unhappy about being charged for $3.2 billion in failed nuclear power plant projects. And one candidate for the Florida House is feeling the heat. Danny Burgess, the former Zephyrhills mayor looking to replace Will Weatherford in Tallahassee, had to answer some tough questions from a crowd during a forum at Lexington Oaks last week about accepting a campaign contribution from Duke, and how that might affect his stance on what the nation's largest utility is charging Florida residents. "The answer is very simple: nobody can buy my vote," Burgess said. "I have been very fortunate to receive a lot of local support, and I have to be able to lay down my head at night. When I make a decision, it's for every single person in this room." Burgess, like other Legislature candidates from both parties, accepted a $1,000 contribution from Duke on July 25. He also received indirect support from Duke through a $2,000 contribution from the Republican Party of Florida, according to state campaign finance records, an organization that has received $100,000 from Duke this year, as well as in-kind donations of $32,250. Duke customers pay a $3.45 surcharge on their bills each month to help fund the Burgess won't defend Duke Energy MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO Danny Burgess, left, and Beverly Ledbetter are campaigning to replace Will Weatherford in state House District 38. Both shared their views at a recent forum hosted by Lexington Oaks. Doing spiritual work, using talent, and a pair of shears By B.C. Manion email@example.com Mayra Santiago has devoted more than half her lifetime styling people's hair to help them look good. Normally, she uses her expertise to tend to customers at Ulta Beauty, a products retailer with salon services in The Grove at Wesley Chapel. But over the summer, Santiago joined a group from Vida Community Church on a mission trip to Colombia to cut hair for people living in a rural village there. "I never, never, never in my life expected to cut hair in the Amazon," the 43-year-old said. Vida is a bilingual church temporarily based in Land O' Lakes, with members primarily joining it from Lutz and Land O' Lakes. Pastors Dwight and Lizania Miranda lead the church, which has a heart for missions. Vida aims to help people meet their needs, both here and in other countries, said Mayra and her husband, Eddie, who have belonged to the church for seven years. When she heard there was a need for someone who could cut hair, Santiago felt compelled to go. She was pleased to put her talents to use for others because she loves being a hairstylist. "It's my passion," she said. Joining the mission trip, she said, was a blessing. The experience didn't just help others, it helped her, too. "I appreciate everything better now," Santiago said. She now has a deeper understanding of just how fortunate she and others are for the everyday comforts and conveniences that most residents of the United States take for granted, she said. Santiago traveled to Colombia on July 16, and returned July 28. The 18-member church group flew to Bogota, then caught a connecting flight to Leticia. From there, they rode on a boat which broke down during their trip to arrive near the remote village where they stayed. Once the boat landed, Santiago's group PHOTOS COURTESY OF MAYRA SANTIAGO Mayra Santiago poses with a young child during the Wesley Chapel woman's trip to the Amazon. The hairstylist went with her church on a mission trip because she heard there was a need for someone who could cut hair. By B.C. Manion firstname.lastname@example.org As an educator, Dave Estabrook was known for his ability to look at issues from various vantage points and collaborate with others to solve problems and help people thrive. On Oct. 2, his contributions to education and to the Land O' Lakes community were honored at a ceremony to dedicate the first phase of the David R. Estabrook Center for Collaboration at Charles S. Rushe Middle School on Mentmore Boulevard in Land O' Lakes. Rushe principal David Salerno, who followed in Estabrook's footsteps at two points in his career, described Estabrook's leadership style. "Immediately, I observed a leader who made it his mission to seek input from many stakeholders as many stakeholders as possible when making decisions," he said. "Not only that, he specifically sought out people that he thought may have a different point of view. He believed in the importance of considering all aspects of problems before recommending a solution." Estabrook hired Salerno to be an assistant principal at Pine View Middle School after Estabrook moved up to become the school's principal. Salerno would later follow Estabrook as principal of Rushe. "I learned from him that the best way to effectively collaborate, to bring about a meaningful change, is to build strong relationships centered on both communications and trust," Salerno said. The ceremony to honor Estabrook was carried over the school's closed-circuit television. Superintendent Kurt Browning, Assistant Superintendent Ray Gadd and Chief Financial Officer Olga Swinson were there. So was school board member Joanne Hurley. Estabrook's wife Lori, his daughter and son-in-law Mallory and Chris Mullis, and Lori's daughter and son Amy Harris and Geoff Hartwig, were there, too. The ceremony marked the dedication of the David R. Estabrook Center for Collaboration. "This is quite an honor," Estabrook said. "It was quite an honor to be the first principal of Rushe Middle School, too. It was truly significant serving in a school that was named after someone who was just an outstanding leader Chuck Rushe and a friend of mine, as well." Opening and managing a school presents many kinds of challenges, Estabrook noted. "We worked through them and worked collaboratively, and made this a great school. And it continues to be a great school under Principal Salerno's leadership," he said. "Collaboration, to me, is not exclusive to just adults. It should be incorporated into the teaching and learning process." Salerno said it is fitting that Rushe's media center be renamed in Estabrook's honor because the retired educator was a master at collaboration. In keeping with his desire to help others to grow and thrive, Estabrook and his family donated $19,000 to help create the center for collaboration that now bears his name. The Pasco Education Foundation matched that gift. Helping students collaborate with each other is precisely what the new center aims to do, Salerno said. "About a year ago, we decided we wanted to do something with collaboration and technology," he said. "We received input from teachers, students and parents, and the overwhelming consensus is that we wanted to make sure that we increased technology Estabrook's knack for collaboration receives honor COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY SCHOOLS Dave Estabrook, an educator for 35 years, is honored for his many contributions to Pasco County Schools and the Land O' Lakes community.

PAULA O'NEIL ENDORSES MIKE MOORE Pasco County's clerk and comptroller has made her choice on who she would like to work with on the Pasco County Commission the next four years. Paula O'Neil endorsed Mike Moore, the Republican candidate for the seat that will be vacated by the retiring Pat Mulieri. "Mike Moore is committed to creating a brighter future for Pasco County," O'Neil said in a release. "Mike is a family man, and an entrepreneur who knows what it takes to grow a business from the ground up in today's economy.

KENYON NEW COMMUNICATIONS ACTING DIRECTOR The Pasco County Public Safety Communications department has selected Jody Kenyon as its acting director, replacing Dona Fernandes, who resigned Sept. 25. Kenyon was the technical support manager in the communications center, and has worked as the acting director in the past. The center last year consolidated its efforts with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and Pasco Fire Rescue, which Fernandes put in charge of the transition beginning in August 2013. Officials did not provide a status on its search for a permanent director. NATURAL GAS GROWING, SENATOR SAYS Sen. Wilton Simpson says legislation he introduced last year creating a natural gas vehicle incentive has since produced 1,820 jobs and $68 million in wages throughout the state. "This fuel provides significant budget savings to governmental entities, the business would and our citizens," the Trilby Republican said, in a release. Simpson called natural gas a "game changer" for both the state and the country, "not only for motor vehicles, but for the energy sector, commercial businesses, and the manufacturing industry." Before his bill, Simpson said there were 18 compressed natural gas stations in Florida. Now there are 61, with another 29 planned a 238 percent increase over that period. A CNG station costs an average of $1.5 million, according to a report by the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, meaning the investment into CNG station infrastructure has been $91.5 million over the past two years.

The Sports Facilities Advisory is offering a new survey designed to help create a set of recommendations to the development of the sports tourism industry in the county. The goal will be to bring youth, amateur sports tournaments and events to the county by expanding the county's Office of Tourism's structure and ability to attract and host those events, according to a release. The study will assess the opportunities, challenges and steps necessary to enter into the rapidly expanding and competitive industry. Pasco has been inspired by the success of sports tourism programming in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, and believes there is enough that Pasco could share in it as well. Last year, Pinellas generated more than 110,000 room nights from such tourism, while Hillsborough has a long history of hosting successful sports tourism events ranging from Florida Youth Soccer Association tournaments, to the 2012 United Youth Football League National Championships. "Pasco County is on the verge of tremendous growth, and we want to position ourselves to bring competitive sports to our region," said Ed Caum, Pasco's tourism manager, in a release. "Having dedicated sports facilities for tournaments in Pasco County, and working toward more collaborative efforts with our potential partners in Hillsborough and Pinellas, will assist with our goal to make our region a recognized sports destination for sports tourism." The online survey will gauge perceived needs and support. The survey requests information related to sports participation, current use of existing sports facilities, and the potential use of future sports facilities. The survey also provides those taking it the option to request Pasco not develop a sports tourism program. The survey will be available through Oct. 9, and can be accessed at tinyurl.com/PascoSportsSurvey. Time running out to take sports tourism survey COURTESY OF OURTOWNFLA.COM Say cheese Alyssa Pumo poses with Gov.

Stage is alive with the sound of (free) music Y ou know what's fun? Going to a concert. If it's an outdoor venue and the weather is nice, nothing's better than sitting back and listening to some great music. You know what's not fun? Paying for it. Concerts today are expensive. I mean, really expensive. A ticket where you're close enough to actually see the musicians could cost $100 or more. That doesn't count parking, either. Who wants to pay that kind of money to have a good time with friends or family? Nobody reading this column, I hope. We're not about spending a lot of money here. So how about an outdoor concert with experienced musicians playing great music for the low, low price of nothing? That's music to my ears. If it also sounds good to you, make sure you catch the Florida Orchestra's Pops in the Park on Oct. 19 at River Tower Park, 401 E. Bird St., in Tampa. It's absolutely free, and a great way to see one of the state's best professional symphony orchestras. This isn't some skeleton crew showing up to test some instruments. It's a full 75person ensemble performing a two-hour concert (with an intermission). That gives them time to play plenty of music, including Dmitri Shostakovich's "Festival Overture" and Ferde Grofe's "Mississippi Suite." You've heard of those, right? No? Me neither. But I looked them up, and they're pretty famous. And there's nothing wrong with being exposed to something you've never heard before. They're classics for a reason, right? But don't think it's an entire concert of music you don't know. You'll recognize a lot of their selections. They'll play music from "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial." You'll hear a special armed forces salute. And they'll finish with Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture." And yes, you know that one. Even if you don't know it by name, you'll recognize it when you hear it. It's a great closer. All you have to do is bring a chair and a blanket and get there early enough to pick the spot you like. Coolers are allowed, too, so you can even pack food and drinks and have a picnic. Bring a good friend, your romantic interest or the entire family. No matter whom you bring, it all costs the same nothing. Anyone who goes will think you're being creative dare I say, sophisticated? for thinking of it. After all, they don't get to see a symphony orchestra for free every day. This is the Florida Orchestra's special free weekend, so this is really your only chance to see them in this format. Well, maybe not your only chance. If Sunday is bad for you, they're doing the same thing the night before. But on Saturday night, it's at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg. It's a longer drive, but if you can't go Sunday you might want to catch them there. It's worth it. Or you can spend a lot of money, including ridiculous service fees, to see some current band at a big theater. And then pay for food and drinks. That doesn't sound very good to me. Save your money and see the Florida Orchestra instead. By the way, I'd advise you to get there at least an hour early. Thousands of people are expected at this event, so plan ahead to get a good space. For more information, visit FloridaOrchestra.org. If you have a good idea for On the Cheap (or want to share your experiences going to an event we mentioned), send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It's likely a problem that won't be fixed over the next four years, but that hasn't stopped the two candidates looking for a seat on the commission to share their ideas on how it might happen. They are just quite different. Mike Moore and Erika Remsberg both want to succeed the retiring Pat Mulieri on the commission, and both believe it's jobs and growth that will finally put them on the dais. "Penny for Pasco is giving us $45 million for economic development, and those dollars need to be put to work," Moore said during a recent candidate forum at Lexington Oaks in Wesley Chapel. "I know the (Pasco Economic Development Council) has some ideas on how to put those dollars to work, and I have some of my own ideas." The Pasco EDC has long taken a position of working to attract big employers to the county, competing with Hillsborough, Pinellas and even Polk counties, to get companies here. Earlier this year, Pasco EDC president and chief executive John Hagen suggested using some Penny for Pasco money to assemble chunks of land and make it ready for a large employer. Companies like Amazon and BristolMyers Squibb could have brought many high-paying jobs to the county if they had chosen Pasco over Hillsborough, Moore suggested. "We need to incentivize those companies to come into the area," he said. "When you bring in large companies, that helps some of the smaller businesses, too. You're going to have more people eating at restaurants, and they will have the money to buy goods at mom and pop stores. We need to keep the economic engine going." But the county has had little luck in bringing those companies here, Remsberg said. Instead, millions of taxpayer dollars have been put aside for companies like T. Rowe Price, who was supposed to bring 1,600 jobs on the promise of a $30 million commitment from the county, only to change its mind a few years later. "It's very expensive to do that, and more often than not, the projects do not work out," Remsberg said. "It's an expensive gamble that we should not be taking and using the minimal dollars we already have." Instead, Remsberg suggests the county take cues from the Pasco EDC and the communities of Dade City and New Port Richey to fund more small business incubators. Facilities like the one at the Dade City Business Center provide low-cost commercial space for upstarts, as well as advisory help from business experts to help those companies become profitable. "They are resource centers for these small businesses, and they have training available to help make these businesses successful," she said. "We should be taking these Penny for Pasco dollars and investing them in provable strategies that we know work here, and which will benefit Pasco residents." Because of his own background starting and running companies, Moore said he's perfect to talk to chief executives of larger companies, and promoting the county to them. Pasco's push to bring tourism-related amenities like the proposed 20-field baseball complex by Blue Marble Strategic in Wesley Chapel will make it easier to sing those praises. "We need to gamble, we need to show them our area and how all these people are excited about it," Moore said. "We want to create lots of opportunities for people who want to come here." But the work to wine and dine executives, and to compete with neighboring counties, carries a hefty price tag, Remsberg said. "The consulting fee alone could've helped Meals on Wheels feed the 200 homebound elderly people who are going without food right now," she said. "We need a steady stream of qualified workers, and we need comprehensive public transportation so that we are able to move those people around." Voters will decide between Moore and Remsberg Nov. 4. Both want jobs, but disagree on how to get them MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO Mi ke M oore, left, and Er i ka Re ms berg both want to s ucceed Pat M ul i er i on the Pa s co County Co mmissi on.

But the Community Awareness Series at Pasco-Hernando State College's Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch aims to make things easier to understand with free lectures that focus on different service providers. The six-part series began with a presentation by Pasco County Community Services on Sept. 5, and continued with the Florida Department of Health on Sept. 19. The next seminar will take place Oct. 10, focusing on the Sunrise Domestic and Sexual Violence Center, followed by the American Cancer Society on Oct. 24. Veterans Services Pasco County and the Coalition for the Homeless of Pasco County will round out the series in November. The series helps satisfy one of the college's strategic goals of increasing awareness in the community, PHSC associate dean Sonia Rodriguez said. "Most institutions are microcosms of their environment, and there are a lot of agencies and information out there that people don't know about," she said. "Or they have a situation going on where they don't know where to seek help or find an avenue in which to help someone else." Rodriguez has been with the college for 20 years, and was involved with a similar program on their north campus in Brooksville. Attendees often are people who not only want to learn about the specific services each agency offers, she said, but also find out how they might be able to volunteer time or donate to their cause. The room is set up to hold 60 people, and it was around half-full for the first presentation. Rodriguez considers that a good start. She believes that more people will attend later events as word gets out, and as certain topics generate more interest. The second presentation attracted around 35 people. She picked the agencies with members of her staff, choosing the ones she thought would be of interest to the community. As the series progressed in Brooksville, different agencies would ask to be featured, providing more topics and covering a wider variety of services. The popularity grew until it became a weekly series, and Rodriguez hopes to see the Wiregrass Ranch campus offerings to eventually grow to that level. While she wants to see as many people take advantage of the Community Awareness Series as possible, Rodriguez said the people who might utilize the services directly might not be the ones actually attending the seminars. While unwanted pregnancy and domestic violence issues exist in the county, for example, those topics are unlikely to draw the individuals involved with them. "The people who need it the most are the people that you probably can't get to come to something," Rodriguez said. Instead, individuals who know someone in need might be the ones in attendance. The college also encourages its faculty and students to attend, since they might interact with people who need those services. The knowledge they gain from the presentations could help them in assisting others. Each session lasts 90 minutes, with a 60minute presentation and a 30-minute question-and-answer session. Each agency decides what kind of seminar to give, and could include a PowerPoint presentation, or different agency members speaking on specific topics. Feedback has been positive so far, and Rodriguez hopes they'll continue to be well received by the students and faculty, as well as the community in general. "Pasco-Hernando State College's mission is to be a part of this community," she said. Before we were a state college we were a community college, so community never leaves our mission." Each seminar starts at 10 a.m., at the conference center in Building B. The Wiregrass Ranch campus is located at 2727 Mansfield Blvd., in Wesley Chapel.

Last summer, Quarles, who is director of pro scouting and a former linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, issued a reading challenge. He said he would visit the school in Pasco, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties that recorded the greatest number of minutes reading on the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, between May 5 and Sept. 5. New River principal Lynn Pabst set a goal of 6,000 reading minutes for her students an impressive goal since it was nearly double the minutes recorded by students there the previous summer. Those students, however, did much, much better than that. They read 693,150 minutes more than 100 times the principal's original goal. Besides reading the most minutes among the three counties that Quarles singled out, New River's accomplishment ranked 20th in Florida and 72nd in the world, Pabst said. During his visit to New River on Sept. 30, Pabst said, Quarles offered inspiring words and emphasized the importance of reading. "It is nice to be important," he said, "but it is more important to be nice."

company's closed nuclear power plant in Crystal River, as well as the cancelled nuclear power plant project in Levy County. "Duke Energy donated to my campaign," Burgess said. "Does that mean I support their decisions? Absolutely not. And I believe that we should repeal the Nuclear Cost Recovery clause." Beverly Ledbetter, the Democratic challenger for House District 38 against Burgess, said she has not taken any money from Duke. She also acknowledges, however, she has an uphill climb against Burgess, raising just $24,000 compared to his $119,000 haul. "I didn't take money from utilities, and I don't take money from those who do not have the same values that I have," Ledbetter said at the forum. "I am not as well funded as Danny, but I am proud of what we've done at the end of day. You have to look at yourself in the mirror, and you have to be proud of who you are and what you represent." Ledbetter, a retired educator with Pasco County Schools, says she supports a controversial version of the Common Core school curriculum that is being integrated into Florida schools. Setting standards is exactly what educators need, with some of what she called political pressures removed from testing. "Every teacher believes in testing," she said. "They want to assess where our students are so that we know what they have learned. The problem is that these tests are being used for things that tests should not be used for. Too much is riding on the outcome school grades, teacher pay, graduation and promotion for our students." And it comes with a $250 million price tag, money that could be spent on vocational education instead, Ledbetter said. But Common Core takes away from the ability of local schools to tailor educational needs to their specific students, Burgess said. "I am not in favor of putting more of our education decisions in the hands of Washington bureaucrats," he said. "We need to focus on local autonomy and local control, and nobody knows the needs of our students here locally better than the teachers in our classrooms, and the administrators at the local level." Based on his experience as a small city mayor, Burgess said he saw firsthand how important local control can be. "It is the most important form of government, and nobody knows the needs of the community more than the people on the ground," he said. But the federal government did not develop Common Core, Ledbetter said. Instead, the National Governors Association a bipartisan organization consisting of state governors created the standardized education system. Once kids get out of school and into the work force, Burgess says he's optimistic about their chances. And while raising wages should be considered, he's not convinced it's something the government should mandate. "What we also need to take into consideration is small businesses in our communities that create jobs," Burgess said. "If you raise the minimum wage, you have to be careful that it may, in turn, have unintended consequences. It may cause employers to have to lay people off, and even may cause employers to shut their doors." Yet, raising the minimum wage could, in itself, provide a boost in the economy, Ledbetter said. "This talk about the living wage is because people who are working these minimum wage jobs now can't afford to buy a home, and they don't have a lot of disposable income," Ledbetter said. "Demand creates jobs, and when you have money to spend, you can buy goods and services." Low pay can also burden taxpayers, too, Ledbetter said. She cited a study about Walmart employees, who have to seek public assistance for basic needs because their low-wage jobs won't cover it. Burgess said he wouldn't completely discount the possibility of a state minimum wage, just that it be thought through thoroughly. "It's a serious issue," he said, "and something that needs to be seriously evaluated."

Santiago marveled at the way the villagers members of the Yagua tribe function in the 21st century. "The people live simple lives," she said. They have few connections with the outside world, aside from three hours of television during the day and three hours at night. They gather at a hut-style building to watch the programs together. They sleep on the ground without mattresses. They eat fish they catch from the river. They use a barrel to catch water for bathing and other uses. The bugs are horrendous. "I've never seen so many mosquitoes in my life," said Santiago, who kept the bugs away with repellant. She slept in a tent on an inflatable mattress, using a battery-powered fan to keep cool. Santiago and other members of her group drank the bottled water they brought to avoid the potential of becoming ill from the local water. Her days were busy. They ate meals that mostly consisted of rice, fish, yucca, plantains and oranges. Santiago awoke daily around 5:30 a.m., ate breakfast, and then began giving haircuts usually between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. She generally finished working around 5 p.m. Santiago couldn't keep up with the demand, so she asked fellow missionary Mahalie Rivera to help give the haircuts. Rivera had no experience, so Santiago taught her the basics. They gave haircuts to young boys and young girls, old men and old women, and everyone else in between. As they worked, a line formed outside. At some points, there were as many as 20 people waiting, Santiago said. Women typically wanted layered looks. The young boys wanted short cuts, although some boys wanted their hair to have the same style of some popular soccer stars. However, Santiago wasn't able to grant their request because she was unfamiliar with the players' hairstyles. Santiago and her husband live in Wesley Chapel and have three children: Lucas, 19 who attends Pasco-Hernando State College's Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch as well as Esteban, 15, and Bianca, 14, who attend Wesley Chapel High School. The kids weren't wild about the idea of their mom making the trip, Eddie Santiago said. "They think it's too extreme," he said. "We keep telling them that they have to go with us one day, on one of these trips. It's good for the young people to see how other people live, and all of the things they can live without and be happy." The experience was rewarding, said Santiago, who was not dissuaded by the humble living conditions. "I'll do it again," she said. SHEARS from page 1A and made sure that we have students collaborate." Many people remember the old school library, Salerno said. "In those school libraries, it often was forbidden to utter a sound," he said. "You were hushed and sent to the principal's office. You found yourself sent back to class. "Fast-forward to today, where our goal is to see places like this, and it's alive with learning." The goal is for students to lead study groups, Salerno said, and use technology to help them research real-world issues. The center now has collaboration stations that are equipped for students to work together to tackle a variety of challenges. They can go to websites and use different apps to develop various skills. For instance, there's a Crime and Puzzle app that aims to help them learn to make inferences, to form a hypothesis, and to analyze evidence. Other learning opportunities focus on improving vocabulary and grammar skills, and becoming skillful of supporting each other's efforts. They also are given opportunities to develop their research skills through challenges that go beyond reading from a single source. The center is just in its first phase, Salerno said. He expects to add more equipment later, as funding allows. He envisions a place where students want to visit, not just during class, but before and after school. He pictures it as being a place that welcomes students to gather kind of like having a Starbucks or a Barnes & Noble on campus but without the snacks and coffee. ESTABROOK from page 1A Mayra Santiago enlisted the help of fellow church member Mahalie Rivera to cut hair during a mission trip to a small Amazon village in Colombia. Young members of the Yagua tribe, an indigenous group who lives in the Amazon, gather to watch television in their village.

Manion firstname.lastname@example.org A new bus stop at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch has provided another transportation option for students attending the Pasco-Hernando State College, and staff members working there. Pasco County Public Transportation added the stop, effective Sept. 29, in a loop near the college's parking garage. The satellite campus opened in Wesley Chapel last January. The bus route runs along the State Road 54 corridor. Buses stop at the campus every two hours, from 8:07 a.m. to 6:07 p.m. Students riding the bus are eligible for discount fares and passes when they produce a valid PCPT photo identification card. The bus stop features a covered shelter where riders can wait. "This is a wonderful addition to the Pasco County Public Transportation system," PCPT director Mike Carroll said, in a release. "I encourage students who use the campus to consider using the bus service as their main way to commute to school." Students who catch the bus will save money on gas and transportation costs, he said. Cross County Route 54 also includes stops in Zephyrhills, Shops at Wiregrass, The Grove, the Target Shopping Center and Medical Center of Trinity. Porter Campus provost Stan Giannet said the college appreciates PCPT's decision to include a bus stop there. "We have received inquiries from students about the bus stop, and based on these inquiries, current enrollment and future enrollment projections, we believe that the location will be utilized by a good number of students," Giannet said. The campus began its fall semester with an enrollment topping 2,100 students, an increase of nearly 300 students over its initial enrollment in January. B.C. MANION/STAFF PHOTO Students and faculty at Pasco-Hernando State College will have a place to sit and stay out of wet weather at a bus shelter near a new bus stop at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch. By B.C. Manion email@example.com The survey form posted on the Pasco County Schools' website was brief and easy to complete. It had just three multiple-choice questions. One asked parents to identify what learning opportunities they think would increase their child's engagement in the learning process. A second question asked parents to identify what technology they'd like to see more of in their child's classroom. The third queried parents on what type of technology their child has access to in their home. Each question was followed by a list of responses, which parents could check off. And, they also had the option of adding comments. For instance, district officials wanted to know if students would be more likely to be engaged if they participate in goal-setting and making learning decisions. Would collaborating with others to solve problems help? How about connecting with global resources to enhance learning? Parents had the option for each question to check as many boxes as they wanted, and they could add whatever observations they wanted to make, as well. The survey was offered as part of the school district's effort to prepare for a digital classroom grant submission, said Vanessa Hilton, director of the office for teaching and learning for Pasco County Schools. Each of the responses about preparing 21st century learners to compete globally is important, according to research, Hilton said. "All of those things will lead to building a 21st century learner," Hilton said. "But what does the community feel is really important now?" When it comes to technology, the district must use it to prepare students for the work place and life, Hilton said. But, she added, "Do we think (computer) tablets will meet the needs for our kids?" Or, do parents think the district needs to equip students with more sophisticated equipment? Finally, the district wants to gain a better understanding of the types of technology that students have access to at home. Survey meant to help identify educational priorities

So if you wanted to see them play, you could sit pretty much anywhere you wanted. "I think we maybe had five kids in the stands," Newton said of her first games coaching. "And some of them might have been siblings." Now in her second year, good seats are harder to find. She estimates between 50 and 75 students go to their games, and they even had a strong turnout for a recent road contest against Land O' Lakes High School. The sudden interest in girls volleyball at Sunlake isn't a coincidence. Newton has turned around a program that spent its first seven seasons in what seemed like a continuous losing streak. Their best record during that span was a 6-18 season, with multiple years where they won just one or two games. They even had a winless season. But things changed in 2013. Under Newton, the Seahawks went 16-10, winning more games in one season than in all previous years combined. But a 5-2 record in Class 5A-District 8 wasn't good enough for the postseason, so Sunlake had to be satisfied with a great turnaround and a bright future. This year the team picked up where it left off, marching out to a 14-4 record so far, including a perfect 6-0 district mark. And while having four losses is no reason to be ashamed, it should be noted that all of those defeats came in tournament play, which Newton scheduled so they could get experience playing a variety of teams. The team is 11-0 outside of their tournaments. The difference in the Seahawks before Newton came aboard and now comes down to how they approach the game from a mental standpoint. "The attitude was like, We'll kind of try to win,'" she said of the team she inherited. "You have to go in with the (proper) mindset. It's a very mental game." Now the Seahawks expect to win and focus on playing up to their capabilities. But there were more than mental changes. The team started improving their conditioning and began working out together back in May to prepare for the upcoming season. It was a new schedule for the team, but the additional work was necessary to show that they were serious about improving on last year's record, and becoming a stronger, fitter and more dangerous squad. It was clear from the beginning that Newton was bringing something different to the team, said Gianna Basulto, a junior who has been on the team for three seasons. "Before it wasn't as serious," she said. "But when Coach Newton showed up, it was like game on. This is how we're going to do it. "She was very straight-forward, and I love that about her because that's the type of coach that I and the whole team need." The earlier conditioning has not only made the team more effective in long rallies, Basulto explained, but also helped the team develop important chemistry before the season even began. That chemistry will be important as the season progresses toward the last few games of the regular season. While Newton said the team is taking things one game at a time, they haven't forgotten their goals. They want to make the playoffs for the first time in school history, and they want to keep winning when they get there. In order to keep getting better, Newton sets different goals for the team when they play, in addition to simply winning the match. They've been working on blocking and defense, for example, because the coach considers them areas where improvement is needed and will be required as they face stronger competition. A strong mental attitude also will be required, and there's plenty of confidence that didn't exist a couple of years ago. As a result, if the team continues to improve, the school's first postseason appearance could become a reality. "I think we can go to (the district tournament) and I think we can win," Basulto said. "Our coach is really pushing us, and we're pushing ourselves." Newton, while still focused on fixing areas of weakness and getting better as a team, shares that optimism. "Our goal is to get out of district with the one or two seed, preferably the one seed," she said, which would qualify Sunlake for a first-ever trip to the regional tournament. "I think when we get to that point, I think good things are going to happen."

The Seahawks won the match to remain undefeated in district play.

OCTOBER 8, 2014 The L AKER / INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & More The L AKER / Lutz N EWS Lutz N EWS B It wasn't a huge crowd, but pets and their owners seem to enjoy the Blessing of the Pets ceremony on Oct. 2 at the East Pasco H ospice Care Center. Standing, from left are Cathy Costanzo and her dog, Tickles, of Zephyrhills; Gwendolyn Burk with Tank and Pumpkin of Wesley Chapel; HPH Hospice chaplain Carl Hemphill; an d HPH Hospice East Pasco County coordinator, Liz Helms. Seated are, from left, HPH Hospice communications manager Jane Freeman, Lew Barbieri and pet Belle of San Antonio, Betty Walker and Dolly of Zephyrhills, and Sarah Hooks and Pumpkin. Belle, a 7-year-old boxer, looks like he may be saying hallelujah,' or maybe amen.' There's another possibility, too. Belle, owned by Lew Barbieri of San Antonio, is yawning just as the Blessing of the Pets ceremony is drawing to a close. Like HPH Hospice chaplain Carl Hemphill, Dolly, a 6-year-old poodle belonging to Betty Walker of Zephyrhills, was having her first Blessing of the Pets experience. Dolly was a natural. While sitting in her carry harness, she bowed her head as her owner read along during the prayer. Pumpkin, an 8-year-old terrier and dachshund mix, checks out the other dogs at the Blessing of the Pets ceremony on Oct. 2 in Dade City. FRED BELLET/PHOTOS Tickles, a 5-year-old poodle terrier mix, was as quiet as a church mouse during the blessing ceremony. He was the first of six dogs to be blessed during the service, and belongs to Cathy Costanzo of Zephyrhills. The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report I t was a small, but pleasant gathering of pets and their owners for the Blessing of the Pets at the HPH Hospice East Pasco Care Center on Clinton Avenue in Dade City. HPH Hospice chaplain Carl Hemphill not only blessed the pets during the Oct. 2 ceremony, but his words lifted the spirits of their human companions, too. The blessing was a first for some of the animals gathered, but they weren't alone. It also was the first time that Hemphill had delivered a blessing to an animal.

For more i nformat i on, ema i l adopt i firstname.lastname@example.org By Pat M ul i er i Special to The Laker/Lutz News In Land O' Lakes, there is a facility that is not very well known. A place where life and death decisions are made daily. It is not one of your local hospitals as you might think: The facility is Pasco County Animal Services. The shelter is located at 19640 Dog Patch Lane, and has a mission to protect the health and safety of the public, and to shelter abandoned, abused and injured animals. Other services include adoption and foster programs, cruelty investigations, education and speakers bureaus, rabies control and license tags. For many years, the animal shelter was in an antiquated facility with few resources and limited methods of re-homing animals. Consequently, the live release rate was dismally low. In 2010, a new adoption facility was opened, and in 2012, Pasco County Commissioners voted to support the Save 90 Percent program. We have a number of other programs that will assist us to reach our goal, and they are known as the "Real Deal." One of these programs is Spay Pasco Inc. It provides low-cost spay and neuter services. Money to fund this program is derived from dog license tag fees. A Pasco County resident can have an animal neutered or spayed, as well as immunized and microchipped for a low fee of $20 for dogs, and $10 for cats. A person can have three animals spayed or neutered each year, and is based on income. Families that qualify for this program range from annual gross income of $22,980 for a single person, to $63,180 for a family of six. You can find out more about this program at SpayPasco.com. Trap, Neuter, Release is another program through Spay Pasco funded by dog license tag fees. It focuses on reducing the population of feral cats. These cats can be trapped with an owner's personal trap, taken to a participating vet, neutered, immunized, ear tipped, and returned to the community where they are living. The cost for this is $10 per cat, and is not income-based and has no limit as to the number of cats a resident can bring each year. If you love animals, but cannot make a permanent commitment, fostering may work for you. The shelter receives many senior dogs and cats that do not adjust well to the shelter. Fosters can provide love, care, good food, socialization, and a warm bed while we look for adopters. Also, some animals that have had surgery need a quiet place to recover, so the fostering program helps with that, too. It takes a village to save an animal, and getting community help is critical. There is always a need for adopters and volunteers at the shelter. Volunteers can help photograph animals, socialize cats, walk dogs, assist with adoption events, and work on the shelter grounds. They also can raise funds for special needs, or collect treats, used towels or blankets to help make shelter animals comfortable Remember, your new "fur-ever friend" is waiting for you at Pasco County Animal Services. Watch out for our frequent adoption specials. If you need more information, please feel free to contact Andrea Ciesluk at (813) 929-1212, or email her at email@example.com. You also can get general information about animal services on the county's website at PascoCountyFl.net. I hope to see you at the shelter. I regularly volunteer there. Shelter Pasco's best kept secret PET PA W S TIME TO ACCEPT SURRENDERED PETS EXPANDED Hillsborough County's Pet Resource Center has changed the times it accepts owner-surrendered pets and strays. The new times will be Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon. Those animals can be delivered to a new area officials said is aimed at enhancing customer service. Previously, the shelter had accepted animals in the afternoons only, three days a week. A valid form of photo identification showing proof of Hillsborough residency is required for anyone surrendering an animal. Individuals turning in pets are required to remain onsite during the process. The center is located at 440 N. Falkenburg Road in Tampa, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., for adoptions, lost pet searches, and county pet license tags. For information, call (813) 744-5660, or visit HillsboroughCounty.org/Pets. FREE ADOPTIONS IN OCTOBER Pasco County Animal Services is hosting Adoptober Fest throughout October, providing free adoptions of animals that have been at the shelter for more than 30 days. For animals that have been at the shelter for less than 30 days, they will be available for $15. The adoption includes spay and neuter, microchip, and vaccines in all adoptions. The shelter is located at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land O' Lakes. For information, visit them at PascoCountyFl.net/PAS. Pat M ul i er i

ZEPHYRHILLS CHAMBER UP FOR AWARD The Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce has been named a finalist for the 2014 Impact Awards by the Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture & the Arts.

"We are thrilled and grateful for this recognition, and for the opportunity to shine the light on Zephyrhills and the many volunteers and supporters that make the world go round here," said chamber executive director Vonnie Mikkelsen, in a release. Pam Marron of the Suncoast Arts Festival, nominated the chamber and its Pigz in Z'Hills BBQ & Blues festival. Both festivals had received a VisitFlorida grant earlier in the summer to promote the Pasco Weekend of the Arts in January. The Impact Awards were created in 1989 to recognize and honor business support of the arts. Winners will be announced Oct. 23 at The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club.

"I truly believe that if you want the community to give to you, you must first give to them," White said, in a release. "You must be there for your community, and you must be involved." IHOP is partners with three local elementary schools, and sponsors student awards. The restaurant also partners with Pasco High School by donating to the football team, cheerleaders and basketball team. Kenneth We s t Larry Bartholo m ew
