Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comWhen Pasco County voters go to the polls in November, they will do more than choose their elected leaders. They also will decide if they want to chip in to expand the countyÂ’s jail, improve its parks and recreation, upgrade its fire rescue services and enhance its libraries. In other words, the county wants voters to agree to tax themselves by passing four separate general obligation bonds to fund those improvements. Each of the bonds would be repaid over 30 years, using revenues from additional charges on property tax bills. Pasco County Administrator Dan Biles recently talked about proposed bonds during a breakfast meeting of The Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. So many people turned out for the session that some had to be turned away. Biles began his talk by describing Pasco CountyÂ’s explosive growth and its expanding needs. Â“WeÂ’re one of the fastest-growing counties in the state,Â” the administrator said. Â“WeÂ’ve had about 37 percent population See BOND, page15A Four bond issues on Pasco ballotBy Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comWhen it comes to tackling the opioid crisis in Pasco County, the community needs all hands on deck. ThatÂ’s according to Monica Rousseau, coordinator for the Pasco County Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP). Rousseau was one of ASAPÂ’s group of speakers for an opioid crisis seminar at the Pasco-Hernando State College Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel. The Sept. 18 event was part of the state collegeÂ’s ongoing Community Awareness Series, open to the public, students, faculty and staff. Rousseau, whoÂ’s worked for ASAP since 2014, underscored the scope of substance abuse locally. Among FloridaÂ’s 67 counties, Pasco currently ranks fifth in the rate of substance abuse related overdose deaths, averaging 25 deaths per 100,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control Wonder Data and County Health Rankings provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In 2017, the county ranked fourth in the state, but averaged fewer deaths, about 22 per 100,000. Manatee County ranks first in the state in 2018, with 38 deaths per 100,000.

New fire district a first in Pasco in nearly a decadeBy Brian Fernandesbfernandes@lakerlutznews.comPasco County firefighters, county officials and first responders gathered on Sept. 17 to mark the beginning of construction for a new Wesley Chapel fire station. The groundbreaking ceremony for Station 38, which began at 8 a.m., was held at the fire stationÂ’s future location on Overpass Road. The ceremony marked the first addition of a new fire coverage area in Pasco County since 2009. The fire station is situated within the Watergrass community, a residential area, which also includes a local elementary school. The project comes in response to an increasing need for shorter wait times in that growing region of Wesley Chapel.

munity college in the Florida Community College System. Under Judsons leadership, the college experienced exponential growth. Bob Judson was a remarkable leader, Timothy L. Beard, Ph.D., current PHSC president, said in the release. He worked his way up the ladder, knew every inch of the college, understood our students, and helped realize the colleges potential. He was admired and respected for his vision and his authenticity. Judson opened a three-story health building, housing state-of-the-art equipment on the colleges West Campus. He also helped establish radiography, and drafting and design programs still popular today. Judson also led the building of a child care center on West Campus. He opened the Public Service Technology building on East Campus in Dade City, where aviation, law enforcement and corrections, and fire academy programs are currently housed. He remodeled North Campus in Brooksville. And, he purchased the land for a permanent Spring Hill Campus, which was erected in 2010. Judson also facilitated a partnership with the University of South Florida to offer formal four-year degree programs on PHSC campuses. In an interview for the Colleges 30-year anniversary commemorative book, he said: I want to be known as a president who intelligently expands the college for the good of all concerned. He added: I hope Im remembered as a president who was sensitive to the needs of our students, faculty and staff. Most of all, I hope Ive distinguished myself as a president who helped make PHSC a great college, and a wonderful place to learn and work. Beard, who now holds the same role as Judson once held, put it like this: The college community will remember his leadership. He will always have a place in college history, and in the hearts and minds of the many PHSC faculty, staff and students he influenced. A funeral service is planned for Judson on Sept. 29 at 12:30 p.m., at Hopewell Baptist Church, at 890 N.W. 15th St., in Pompano Beach.PHSC is planning a memorial service to honor Judson on Oct. 9 at 1 p.m., at the PHSC Performing Arts Center on its West Campus, at 10230 Ridge Road in New Port Richey. rsonaled M r e w ith A A Uniqu e P e mory Care in a Lu m u xury Estate Ho m e u s or Deme n A lzheimer e Solution f o M o e o r A Love d ing e n ti a d On e me S e F A B ac Va memb e The p e Sh o A eW V Call today 813-632-1270. ed for w ell car w ay with confidence that your loved one is e without a long-term commitment.

Two months later, doctors told Amy and her husband, Rick, that April had cerebral palsy, with little chance of ever walking. It was also discovered that she had a developmental disability that would affect her speech and learning. He told us she would never drive a car or go to college, said Amy, recalling the doctors diagnosis. That was the real devastating news. Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder which affects the movement, muscle tone and posture of more than 500,000 people in the U.S. Muscles are either too floppy or stiff, resulting in delayed motor skills, and can be accompanied by occasional seizures. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is the most common motor disability among children, and there is no known cure. Amy and Rick would need to take cautious measures to ensure their daughters needs would be met.GROWING AND ADJUSTINGWhile receiving government assistance to accommodate her needs, April attended unique classes in school to learn and socialize with other children. By fourth grade, she was being homeschooled, and received both speech and occupational therapy. In these formative years, she would thrive in playing sports, such as basketball and baseball, as well as contending in a chess club accomplishments exceeding the grim outlook doctors had initially predicted. Its not about what the child cant do, said Amy, who tried to raise her daughter with a sense of independence. More importantly is what are they able to do. April attended Gaither High School where she continued to receive therapy. While there, she joined Best Buddies, a nonprofit organization, which paired her with other students to find common interests and develop friendships. The organization has a chant, which April still recites to this day followed with hand claps and a cheer at the end.A NEW TRANSITIONAs April was finishing her senior year of high school, she became involved in the Community-Based Training (CBT) program. This organization helped her find employment and to build good work ethic. For the next three years, April worked at a nursing home dining room, a Publix bakery and the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa. However, the CBT program had a cutoff point and was only able to support April until she turned 22. Amy knew that employment was a valuable asset to her daughter and wanted her to continue working in some capacity. By chance, Amy frequented the local Taco Bell in her Lutz neighborhood that had an employee with a disability. Without Amy making a request, the manager reached out and offered a position for April. It came as a surprise to Amy who admitted she never considered the idea. When I heard that they were willing to try to accommodate, that made me feel good about that place [Taco Bell], she said. GAINFULLY EMPLOYEDNow at 25, April is about to celebrate her third year at Taco Bell. The second I started Taco Bell, I loved it, she said. It makes me happy. She works two days a week wiping tables and trays, as well as keeping the drink area in top-notch shape. Her hard work has earned her an Employee of the Month award, which she proudly displays at home. You could just see the pride in being able to work, Amy said, referring to the jobs impact on her daughter. It was really evident. April is an approachable employee, socializing with the customers and greeting her co-workers with hugs. While Amy has seen the social growth that the job has given April, she believes it can be beneficial for others, as well. Amy said its important for those without special needs to engage with those who do, as it builds patience and understanding. Amy and Rick have to work their respective jobs and cannot always be home. However, Taco Bell management has been generous in working Aprils schedule around theirs. When not at work, April involves herself in various activities. I like to rock out in my room with the music loud, she said. I have lots of music CDs. Aside from playing video games and sports, she spends time with her best friend, Anne Marie, and older brother, Eric. She also serves as an usher at her church, where she has formed many relationships with members. Her giftedness is being a butterfly, said Amy of her daughters effect on others. She goes from flower to flower, pollinating love and joy. When April was younger, Amy joined a support group where she could express her thoughts among those who resonated with her situation. She encourages other parents with disabled children to do the same and to not give up hope. Just know that theres value in their life, Amy said. They still have gifts to offer. BRIAN FERNANDES The Pasco-Hernando State College community is mourning the recent death of Dr. Robert Judson Jr., the colleges second president. The educator began his career at PascoHernando State College in 1972, when the college was a community college known as the college without walls and was in the process of opening its doors to Pasco and Hernando county communities, according to a news release from the state college. Judson was hired as the colleges first instructor and counselor/recruiter, subsequently teaching the first course the college ever offered. The following year, Judson moved into a role as the colleges first coordinator of financial aid, where he wrote grants for student aid programs and was responsible for veterans affairs. He received his doctoral degree in education in 1976, and in 1977 became dean at East Campus. In 1983, he took on the role of East Campus provost, followed by college vice president and executive vice president, according to the release. In 1994, Judson succeeded Dr. Milton O.

The free conference, Game-Changing Tactics for Small Businesses, featured speakers tackling such topics as Keeping Your Eye on the Money is a Winning Strategy, The Best Defense is a Good Offense, Score a Touchdown Using YouTube, and Set Your Goals and Objectives to Win. Jim Hammond, a mentor and executive board member for Chapter 439 of SCORE, offered practical advice to help businesses lay the foundation for continued growth. The key items in a business of any size are not the product and not the service, Hammond told those gathered at the Residence Inn Marriott, in Lutz. The key items are the people, the capital, and most importantly, the vision of the CEO. If the owner/CEO does not have the vision of where this business is going, its not going to grow. Its not the products or services. Why do I say that? Because over some extended period of time, I guarantee you, all of the products and all of the services are going to change, said Hammond, who was the CEO of a software business for 20 years. We went through five complete product changes, he said, noting his company had to write new software from scratch. The old stuff wasnt any good. Being able to navigate change is critical, and its important to be thinking ahead, he said. All businesses run out of growth. You hit a plateau. If you dont do something, if you dont have a vision, it will start to tail off. It doesnt matter what the business is, Hammond said.CASH FLOW AND GOOD PERSONNEL ARE KEYIn my world, the No. 1 financial statement is: Cash flow forecast, Hammond said. If youre out of cash, youre out of business. Thats how important it is, he emphasized. Maintaining a revenue stream is critical. You, as the CEO, are the No. 1 person in charge of sales, marketing and planning, Hammond said. What did you sell today? How much revenue did you generate today? We dont have time to be fooling with things that arent generating revenue. Prime time, youve got to generate revenue, he said. Its also essential to be thinking of new ways to increase the amount of money the business brings in, he said. That could be achieved by adding a product line or service, bringing in a new employee, acquiring equity partners or through business acquisitions, he said. As CEO of the software company, he met annually with his top staff, and they reviewed each department asking: What were they going to do to help generate additional revenue for the company, provide services and so forth. Besides creating new revenue streams, companies need to keep a close eye on costs, he said. Businesses need actionable information. If I dont have a budget, these numbers (profit and loss) mean nothing, he said. For example, if a companys budget is $2 million and its revenues are just $700,000, the result would be a disaster, he said. Every business needs not just financial statements, but a budget. We need a budget for the month, for the quarter, for the year. And then, we can start measuring: How are we doing? We dont want surprises. The only time I like surprises? Christmas and my birthday, Hammond said. He also urged businesses to work hard to reduce costs: It makes it easier to share profits with employees. If you can find a way to buy the same widget, for half the price, 20 percent off or whatever, go do it, he said. Sometimes we get sloppy on the expense side. A dollars worth of cost reduction can be worth $2 or more of income. Its hard to get another $100,000 in income.

Why? Because theyre fresh. Why? Because on the last day of the month, when someone has entered in all of the cash receipts, paid all the bills nothing changes. By the 10th of month, theres no reason they cant print up a report. Heres your financials for the month, he said. Businesses have good months and bad months, thats how business goes, he said. But, its important to always have a pulse on current conditions. I run a business. I want to at least weekly log into my bank account, know how to do it, and run down the list of whats in the bank account. If something big pops out that I dont recognize, I can start asking questions. Im big on internal controls. Why is that? Because the more you bulk up your business, the more issues and more security you need to think about. Make sure that all of your checks and all of your invoices that you send out are numbered and stored somewhere safe, he said. Its also important to have cash available, in case of emergencies or an unexpected downturn. A reasonably healthy business, the minimum should be three to four months worth of all expenses, cash in the bank, plus any one big-time item, Hammond said. That, to me, is a pretty comfortable place to be. After cash flow, the next most important thing is having good people, Hammond said. Getting and keeping good employees is very important. Its important for all businesses. Its especially important for small businesses because you dont have extras, he said. If a company wants to grow, it generally needs to add employees, he said, noting its difficult for a company with just a couple of employees to hit the $1 million mark. When adding staff, however, revenue per employee is a key metric, he said. Youre not going to grow unless you can increase your revenue per FTE (full-time employee), Hammond said.

September 26, 2018 A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION IN THE LAKER/LUTZ NEWS Â€ 813-909-2800 Â€ LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM ThereÂ’s no place like in PASCO & NORTH HILLSBOROUGH O ne of TampaÂ’s most preeminent builders, ICI Homes, is selling its model homes in Bexley and Asturia in central Pasco County.Â“Both homes have top-of-the-line upgrades and are a tremendous value for families looking to move this fall,Â” said Sales Manager Leah Turner. Both Asturia and Bexley are master-planned communities located on State Road 54 close to the Suncoast Parkway. In Asturia, ICI HomesÂ’ model is a one-story Serena loaded with elegant upgrades that is built on a beautiful conservation lot. At 2,217 square feet, the Serena has four bedrooms, three baths and a two-car garage. Its unique grand foyer pulls you through the house with 12-foot ceilings, and its large kitchen and great room gracefully flow onto a covered lanai that stretches along the back of the home. Currently priced at $515,775. Â“This home never feels crowded, whether youÂ’re relaxing with family, playing with the kids or entertaining friends,Â” said Turner. In Bexley, the spacious two-story Brooke model is 3,609 square feet with five bedrooms, four baths and garages for three vehicles. Currently priced at $835,280. Â“This remarkable home has cathedral ceilings in the living room that complement the open floor plan,Â” said Turner. Â“The ownerÂ’s suite is separated from all the other rooms, and has his-and-hers walk-in closets, a luxurious bath, enclosed shower and separate vanities. Upstairs are four additional bedrooms, two shared bathrooms and a multifunctional game room.Â” In addition to these beautifully decorated model homes, ICI Homes also has three, one-story inventory homes in Asturia that are ready now or will be by the end of the year. The Serena, Arden and Oakland range from 2,115 to 2,402 square feet, and have four bedrooms, three baths and two-car garages. Inventory homes, including the lot, begin at $397,421. ICI Homes are specifically designed for families with school-aged children, and offer the latest technology and innovative, open floor plans that connect large family gathering spaces to secluded study enclaves. Families living in Bexley and Asturia are zoned to some of the best schools in Pasco County, including Land OÂ’ Lakes and J.W. Mitchell high schools. Bexley has an elementary school located within the community that opened in 2017, and youngsters in Asturia attend highly rated Odessa Elementary. Â“We are ready to move quickly on all of our inventory homes, and will do everything we can to get a family settled as soon as possible,Â” said Ron Ferguson, division manager of the companyÂ’s West Florida Division. MORE HOMES AT ASTURIA ICI Homes is continuing to build in Asturia with new models and inventory homes in AsturiaÂ’s recently announced Phase Three, with new models and sales beginning in early 2019. Â“WeÂ’ve had tremendous success since we began building in Asturia in late 2017, and many families are looking forward to our new floor plans and pristine conservation and water lots available in Phase Three,Â” said Ferguson. ICI Homes will have 22 large home sites on 55-foot lots, and 16 premium, extra large 65-foot lots in Phase Three. Two new models are being built, with pricing beginning in the low $300,000s. Â“We are very pleased to be offering families new homes in this mid-point range that come with all the quality features, designs and construction methods that ICI Homes is known for,Â” said Ferguson. Â“Buyers are excited to get into a prestigious, ICI Home at this lower price point.Â” ICI Homes is one of FloridaÂ’s most premier builders, and for many years has been ranked in the Top 100 Builders in the nation by Builder Magazine.

A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION IN THE LAKER/LUTZ NEWS Â€ 813-909-2800 Â€ LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM September 26, 2018 A sturia, a masterplanned community in Odessa, is celebrating its third Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. New residents, future residents and families from neighboring communities are all invited to this free event open to the public. Fun activities for children and adults include hayrides, crafts, face painting, carnival rides, a bounce house, local vendors and a balloon artist. Hay will be provided for those wanting to stuff their own straw scarecrows (please bring your own pillowcase and old clothing). A variety of food trucks will be at the event. A portion of vendor proceeds will benefit Pasco Kids First, a nonprofit that is engaged in the prevention, assessment and treatment of child abuse and neglect. BEAUTIFUL MODELS When Fall Festival guests are done enjoying the activities, they are invited to tour AsturiaÂ’s beautifully decorated model homes. Ashton Woods Homes, David Weekley Homes, ICI Homes and Ryan Homes are AsturiaÂ’s exclusive builders. Model homes have on-site agents to assist homebuyers in selecting their next residence. Builders offer a range of home sizes and architectural styles, with prices ranging from the mid $200,000s to over $500,000. Many inventory homes are available for families looking to move before the end of the year. The communityÂ’s newest builder is Ryan Homes, which has begun construction on rear-load townhomes that will sell in the mid $200,000. Townhomes will be located near the front of the community, walkable to AsturiaÂ’s Amenity Center. ItÂ’s been just three years since Asturia began selling homes, and already this award-winning development has moved into its third phase. Over 200 homes have been sold in its first two phases, and builders are planning new models for the opening of Phase Three in early 2019. GREAT AMENITIES Asturia residents enjoy a kidfriendly, family-oriented lifestyle surrounded by miles of multi-use trails, interspersed with dog parks and pocket parks. Kids especially love the unique, domed-shaped Kompan playground. Everyone enjoys AsturiaÂ’s distinctive, 5,800-square-foot Amenity Center and Clubhouse, with its fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness center, covered outdoor living rooms, a luxurious resort-style swimming pool and expansive lawn areas for recreation. When AsturiaÂ’s development is complete, it will likely have less than 550 single-family homes, compared to nearby planned communities with over 3,000 homes. Many people chose Asturia because they prefer the intimate neighborhood experience that comes with its modest community size. Asturia is a mixed-use, masterplanned community located in the high-demand State Road 54 corridor in Pasco County. The communityÂ’s central location is just five minutes from the Suncoast Parkway and provides close proximity to U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and I-75. Its master plan incorporates retail, office, multifamily and a variety of single-family residential offerings. More information is available by visiting AsturiaÂ’s model homes, registering at the communityÂ’s website, AsturiaFlorida.com, or by calling (813) 510-3601.Family Fun At AsturiaÂ’s Fall Festival!

Thats what residents in central and east Pasco have the opportunity to do when they attend Bexleys annual Concerts for a Cause. The Bexley community, located in Land O Lakes just off State Road 54 and the Suncoast Parkway, is gearing up for its third season of Concerts for a Cause, which begins on Oct. 6 and runs for four consecutive Saturday evenings through the month. Concerts are from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The series culminates with a Fall Festival on Oct. 27, complete with a pumpkin patch, face painting, food trucks, and costume contests for adults, children and pets. In lieu of an admission fee, concert-goers are asked to bring nonperishable food items, or make cash donations to Feeding Tampa Bay. Donations stay right in the Pasco County area, meaning neighbors who attend the concerts are truly helping their neighbors in need. Bexleys concert series isnt just for residents. The public is always welcome to attend. The communitys popular Twisted Sprocket Caf is open until 9 p.m. on concert nights, and offers a variety of food and drink options. Robin Graffam started attending the Bexley concert series even before she moved into the community last August. Shes been to nearly every Concert for a Cause since. We enjoy the music, and the kids enjoy running around and playing with each other, said Graffam. Its cute to see all the kids and dogs dressed up for the Halloween costume contest. Plus, we always meet new people at the concerts. As a newcomer to Bexley, Graffam credits the Concert for a Cause series for helping her family develop close friendships with fellow neighbors. Now, the families meet up with each other for holidays and kids play dates, Gaffam added. Deirdre Bowman often brings her daughter and grandchildren to the concerts when they visit from California. The music is appropriate for all ages and the concerts are a very family friendly environment, she said. Im so glad they offer them. Concerts for a Cause has become one of the most popular events at Bexley, noted Pam Parisi, vice president of marketing for Newland Communities, developers of Bexley. Not only is it a great way to bring the community together, but the donations collected help so many people. During last years Concert for a Cause series, concert-goers donated more than 4,000 meals to Feeding Tampa Bay. The lineup for this years Concerts for a Cause includes some of the most popular bands in the region. From Me 2 You headlines on Oct. 6. The Rhythmics belt out pop, funk and dance music on Oct. 13. The acclaimed band, Frequency, takes the stage on Oct. 20, and Raydio will get the crowd on its feet during Bexleys Fall Festival on Oct. 27. Concert-goers should bring blankets and lawn chairs, and get ready for a great evening of music and fun for the whole family!

Weve had tremendous success in Asturia, selling over 100 singlefamily homes in this much-desired community, said Sales Manager Kristin Wilson. We have under 40 homes available for sale, and expect all to be completed by the end of the year. Because most families want to move into their new home as soon as possible, Ashton Woods received permits from Pasco County for all of its remaining Asturia homessites. This saves our buyers up to three months in the building process, said Jillian Harris, Ashton Woods community sales manager in Asturia. Our designers have put together beautiful combinations of flooring, countertops, design features and colors that will excite the vast majority of buyers, she said. Plus, we have a great combination of homes that convert flex space to extra bedrooms, add bonus rooms and extra baths, and have great outdoor living areas with front porches and extended lanais. While construction is underway on many homes, Ashton Woods buyers are still able to select flooring, countertops, cabinets and other nonstructural customizations on several homes that will be completed in November and December. INVENTORY HOMES Ashton Woods offers classic oneand two-story homes in its Traditional Home Series. All feature open floor plans, large living areas, beautiful master suites, high-end finishes and lots of storage. Homes have twoor three-car garages, and many back up to private conservation lots. AFFORDABLE HERITAGE SERIES Many first-time homebuyers and downsizing families choose the Heritage Series. Ashton Woods has two move-in ready, one-story homes available in these well-designed floor plans the Truman at 1,961 square feet with four bedrooms and two baths. The slightly smaller Adams plan is 1,829 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. SPACIOUS CLASSIC SERIES Five traditional, inventory homes are ready in the Classic Series, including two, one-story homes. The versatile Odessa plan has three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths in 2,243 square feet. The larger Naples plan offers four bedrooms, three baths in 2,321 square feet. Also ready now are three, twostory homes with two-car garages, including the Ferrara model home at 2,890 square feet with its four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The Milan is 2,722 square feet with four bedrooms and two-and-ahalf baths. The largest home Ashton Woods builds in Asturia is the 3,365square-foot Athens, which boasts four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. EVERGREEN AND GROVE SERIES Ashton Woods is the only builder in Asturia offering single-family homes with garages at the rear of the house. There are seven, quick move-in homes available in these series, all conveniently located close to Asturias Amenity Center. There are three Arlington plans at 2,003 square feet, and also four Ortega plans at 2,189 square feet. These homes begin at $279,000. GREAT SCHOOLS For families with children, Asturia is a very popular community because it is zoned for some of the best schools in Pasco County J.W. Mitchell High, Seven Springs Middle and Odessa Elementary, said Harris. Asturia buyers prefer the communitys smaller size of just 550 homes, compared to thousands of homes being built in neighboring developments. Plus, they appreciate that construction will not be ongoing for several years. Ashton Woods was named the 2017 Builder of the Year by Builder and Developer Magazine and, for the fourth consecutive year, has been ranked among the top three for Most Trusted Builders in America.

Todays ceiling fans incorporate beautiful features, such as hand carved blades, sleek finishes and natural elements -to appeal to a variety of different design trends, says Steve Register, ceiling fan product manager for Progress Lighting. Register has the following tips to help you select the best fans for your space. CHOOSE YOUR FEATURES Versatile functionality. Do you want to use your ceiling fan yearround? Simply select a fan with reversible blades for the option to circulate cool air in summer or warm air in winter. Efficiency. To save energy and green your home, consider an ENERGY STAR rated fixture. Lighting. To get in on todays lighting trends, go for a layered lighting design in your space by installing a light kit, or selecting a fan with a preinstalled fixture. Control. Some fans feature fullrange dimming and full-function remote control capabilities for convenience. SIZE IT TO YOUR SPACE Size is really important when selecting a ceiling fan. If a fan is too large, it can overwhelm the space. On the flip side, if the fan is too small, the airflow may be inadequate. The American Lighting Association suggests the following fan sizes compared to square footage: Up to 75 square-feet -36 inches or less 75-144 square-feet -36 to 42 inches 144-225 square-feet -44 to 40 inches 225-400 sq. ft -50 to 54 inches FIND YOUR STYLE Once youve identified the size and application of your fan, its time for the fun part -choosing a style that complements your style. Consider fan shape, blade features and finish to help you meet the rooms design needs. For a simple home upgrade that goes a long way, consider a ceiling fan with all the features youll want and need for year-round comfort and beauty.

W hile mortgage interest rates remain near historic lows, they have been slowly rising over the last year, increasing the cost of 30year loans for borrowers. Home buyers concerned about higher rates have other options to consider: an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM), which provides an initial lower monthly payment, or a 15-year fixed rate mortgage, which has a higher monthly payment but reduces the amount of interest paid over the course of the loan. A SHOT IN THE ARM An ARM typically starts out at a lower interest rate than the classic, 30-year fixed rate. After an initial period, typically five, seven or 10 years, the interest rate adjusts over the life of the loan. There are several different types of ARMs, but one of the most popular is the 7/1, which stays at the same rate for the first seven years and then adjusts yearly thereafter. After the fixed period, the rate can increase each year, but the good news is that there are caps on how high that rate can go, says Peter Boomer, head of mortgage distribution for PNC Bank. The opposite may also be true: its possible the rate will decline if market forces are pointing that way. The best advice is to check with your lender for the details. WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER Boomer said its important to know how long you expect to be in your home. The national average is seven years before homeowners sell or refinance, which is why the 7/1 ARM is so popular, he said. If you expect to be in a home for fewer than 10 years, then you may want to consider an ARM. Boomer suggests talking with a mortgage loan officer about whether an adjustable rate may save you money. Many people like the idea of that lower rate to start, while others prefer the peace of mind of a stable rate. For traditional mortgages, refinancing remains a viable option if interest rates fall in subsequent years. Its important to remember that mortgage rates rise and fall over time. It may be worth considering an ARM because over time there may be savings, as opposed to the cost of refinancing, Boomer says. Look at your family, job, future and goals to decide whether this option makes sense. Your family may grow, you may get a new job and relocate, you may downsize for retirement or face other changing financial conditions. 15-YEAR MORTGAGE Another alternative is a shorter term fixed-rate loan, the most popular being 15 years. According to Boomer, while a 15year mortgage will have a higher monthly payment than a 30-year fixed, the interest rate is typically lower and you pay back the principle faster, which means you can save money on interest over the length of the loan. The good news for consumers is that there are many financing options available. Talk to your loan officer to discuss which best fits your situation, he says. Owning a home is on the path to keeping your American dream alive, and exploring your options can help you more easily achieve it.Courtesy of StatePointConcerned About Rising Mortgage Rates? Dennis Realty Celebrates 45 Years I nsurance and T ow T still its home today pany W e way out in the country L and O La k es and W oovy people at Dennis Realty Y Scooby gear W We e had so much fun digging out and finding 70s-style clothing and r, and then dr essing up for the party and going back to the days of disco, said Carl Stratton, general manager and broker at the firm. Many partygoers came as flash backs from the days of disco, some with the spirit of peace as flower children and hippies, and still others dressed as their favorite 70s TV show actor or entertainer. Big Elvis was in the house, along with The Skipper and Ginger from Gilligans Island and Shaggy and y, said Stratton. Oh, and lets not forget Foxy Cleopatra, Ye eah Baby! I never realized we had so many gr y. Dennis Realty was founded in 1973 by Robert and Juanita Dennis in Lutz. The company started from humble beginnings, back when Lutz was considered the outskirts of town, and We esley Chapel wer y. I appreciate all the work everyone is doing, also want to thank all the original people who helped build the company in the beginning, and those who are no longer with us, owner Robert Dennis told his guests. He went on to comment that he did not remember much of the wild side of the 70s, since he was busy raising his family and working on building their real estate business. Wi ithadr eam of building a business, Robert and Juanita Dennis went to work selling land and houses, and finding key agents. They bought a little house in Lutz off U.S. 41, and turned it into their first real estate office. After many years of working, growing and adding onto their building, Robert and Juanita decided to build an office for their growing comy. In 1995, they broke ground on the two-story Dennis Realty building at 1022 Land O Lakes Blvd, which is y. Now a l an d mar k at the corner of U.S. 41 and County Line Road, the building is also home to Dennis Property Management, Arr Ti itle and ABC Dennis Insurance.

The cost is likely much less than you think. B lack and white has always been a classic color pairing, and this neutral palette has resurged as one of todayÂ’s hottest design trends. Whether your look is modern or traditional, knowing how to properly use black and white can provide balance and boldness to a home. Here are some tips to help integrate this trend into your space. CREATE A LUXURIOUS LIVING ROOM Â“You can either go heavy on the black, with black painted walls or wallpaper, or make it the accent color and opt for white walls,Â” says Danielle DeBoe Harper, interior designer at Moen, a manufacturer of kitchen and bath fixtures. Â“In a white-heavy room, include touches like artwork in black frames, a black fireplace or a black painted floor and ceiling moldings. In a black-heavy area, use white trim and rugs to offset dark walls for a contemporary look, or organic wood accents to create a unique boho feel." In modern homes, DeBoe Harper recommends incorporating a pair of bold buffalo check chairs, or large scale black and white photos. For a more traditional approach, she suggests using silk black and white striped curtains, or painting the ceiling in a black and white herringbone design. TURN UP THE HEAT IN YOUR KITCHEN Your kitchen is the perfect location for some wow factor. The boldness of black and white will seriously impress your guests. Â“A lot of homeowners want the clean kitchen look, so theyÂ’re afraid to bring in a dark, dramatic color,Â” says DeBoe Harper. Â“In reality, incorporating black cabinets or fixtures into an all-white kitchen can give it an upscale, current feel thatÂ’s still streamlined -and doesnÂ’t require cluttering your countertops with accent pieces.Â” Consider combining a matte black faucet with a white backsplash and counters, or mixing black bentwood caf chairs around a modern white tulip table for a more eclectic approach. SHOWER YOUR BATHROOM WITH STYLE Black and white can give your bathroom a clean, crisp look. Infuse black accents through a matte black faucet and coordinating accessories, or through black and white floor tiles in a geometric print. Towels also provide an opportunity to add texture and visual interest, whether itÂ’s a modern floral or traditional houndstooth. For a seriously eye-catching shower, install black and white striped tile. Keep the bathroomÂ’s walls white, so the tiles really pop, expanding the stripes to the ceiling to emphasize the height of your bathroom walls and make it feel bigger -the thinner the stripes, the bigger the statement. Â“Integrating black and white makes your space feel sophisticated, yet playful and on trend,Â” adds DeBoe Harper. Â“Use these tips to achieve the ideal balance in your home.Â” Courtesy of StatePointBlack-and White Home Design Trend

These dollars, allocated to the Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP), will be used to support coordinated efforts to address addiction in the community, with a targeted emphasis on prevention among youth. As one strategy in a comprehensive response to the public health crisis created by addiction, Bilirakis supported an increase to the Drug Free Communities program in this years budget. In total, $90.9 million was allocated to drug prevention coalitions across the nation. The funds will help provide local community coalitions with resources to prevent youth substance abuse, including prescription drugs, marijuana, tobacco and alcohol.

The new 10,843-square-foot station will have a four-bay garage for trucks and supplies. It will have a kitchen and residential area, and a sheriffs substation will be housed there, too. The station will have a new call alert system that will be implemented to simultaneously dispatch numerous calls at the same time. The installation of a Plymovent Diesel Exhaust Capture System will set Station 38 apart from other Pasco fire stations. The feature will lessen exposure to carcinogenic chemicals. Station 38 will have atmospheric conditioning that will protect our firefighters from that gas, said Deputy Chief Michael Cassano. Going forward, existing and future stations in the county are planned to be equipped with the system. Cassin has been visiting Pasco fire stations to get feedback on what improvements could be incorporated into Station 38. Were trying to think long-term, the chief said. Pasco County Commissioner Ron Oakley offered a few words, too, before a customary snapshot was taken of shovels flinging dirt. Station 38 has been four years in the making and will cost an estimated $3.6 million to build. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2019.FIRE, from page 1A growth over the past decade or so. He predicts the countys population will be between 560,000 and 570,000 when results from the 2020 Census come out. Pasco is one about 15 counties among 67 counties in Florida growing faster than the state average, Biles said. The administrator also described preparing Pascos budget for 2019 as reasonably easy. Thats because the countys property values grew by 9.5 percent, he said. Theres a referendum on Novembers ballot, however, that could create an additional homestead exemption, thereby reducing county revenues. If thats adopted, it would affect the countys general fund budget, which is used to pay for the sheriff, fire/rescue, parks and libraries, he said. If voters pass the additional homestead exemption, Biles expects Pascos revenue to increase next year by about $2 million to $3 million next year, substantially less than the increase it enjoyed this year. At the same time, the countys needs continue to grow, Biles said, noting that his remarks about the proposed general obligation bond issues were intended to be informative in nature.I am educating, not advocating, Biles said.Regarding the proposed bond issue for the jail, the administrator noted the current population of the jail is around 1,700 to 1,800, while its rated capacity is around 1,400. Theres a court order that says at 1,900, youve got to start releasing people, Biles said. Regarding the proposed bond issue for fire rescue, the county would build four new fire districts and reconfigure five existing stations. Station 38 (which had a groundbreaking ceremony in Wesley Chapel last week) is the first new fire district in this county in 10 years, Biles said. How many people have moved to Pasco County in the past 10 years? About 80,000? And, we havent built one new fire district. The countys fire stations are 30 to 40 years old, he added, and the new fire engines that we need to serve these areas wont fit in some of those fire stations. When the county was cutting its budgets back in 2008-2009, it cut parks and recreation. We cut all of that maintenance stuff. The parks piece of the bond is to catch up the capital maintenance, he said. The library systems budget was cut, too. The bond issue would pay to enhance and update libraries, which have not been freshened up for decades. Biles praised the countys library staff. They do an awesome job, he said, noting, they are always looking for new ways to leverage the facilities that they have to help the community. Frankly, most of the customers arent in there (libraries) for books anymore. Theyre in there for the social aspect. Theyre in there to connect with the community. Theyre in there for Maker Space. Theyre in their for small business. They can go in there and kind of work and build ideas. The libraries multiply what we can do in the community. Those are social event centers nowadays. Parks are social event centers nowadays, Biles said. If all four bond issues are approved, the owner of a house with a $100,000 of property value would pay around $30 a year in additional taxes, Biles said.BOND, from page 1A The figures, Rousseau explained, indicate other counties are getting worse in the fight against opioids, while Pasco remains about the same. Were not getting better. Were just kind of starting to press pause in Pasco County, whereas other counties are seeing a lot more deaths, Rousseau said.PASCO DEALING WITH LINGERING EFFECTS OF PILL MILLSRousseau attributes Pascos high ranking, in part, to its pill mill epidemic from the early part of the decade. Weve cut down on all the pill mills, but people with addiction are still dealing with it, Rousseau said. They cycle through treatment. It takes a few times for it to stick, but we just have a population that still is healing from that. In reducing substance abuse, Rousseau suggested the county needs to take a more comprehensive approach, focusing on the supply, demand and treatment sides of the issue, and looking at this from a community perspective. Getting to the root cause of substance abuse is another task understanding that addiction oftentimes is an evolving disease of despair driven by emotional suffering, as well as physical suffering, Rousseau said. Helping those people get counseling may be one solution to fight the crisis, she said. We talk about the pain aspect until were blue in the face, she said. Whats needed are conversations about how that person has post-traumatic stress disorder, or severe childhood trauma, or lost his job or his wife just left, Rousseau said. Another speaker, New Port Richeys Rachel Starostin, shared her personal story about battling opioid addiction. She said she became a drug addict after she was in a car accident on U.S. 19 caused by a drunk driver. A trauma nurse for Bayfront, Starostin was forced to give up her career because of ongoing physical problems related to the crash. Aside from physical injuries, Starostin, too, had pent up emotional scars. Her mother died when she was 16. Her father, a drug addict, was absent throughout her life. Years later, Starostin came home to find her husband, who had died by suicide. I felt really bad on the inside. Everybody in my life that I really loved was gone, she said. Starsotin previously used work as a coping mechanism, but once her livelihood was taken away, she began using pain medication to fill the void.DRUG DEPENDENCY AFFECTS ALL KINDS OF PEOPLEIt began innocently. She took opiates before physical therapy sessions to manage legitimate feelings of pain and discomfort. Over time, though, she progressively took more and more. The medications removed her inhibitions. The reaction I had from it was not normal. All those bad feelings of, Im worthless. My life is over, they all went away, she said. Starostin said she was completely controlled by opiates for more than 10 years. While in jail, facing 25 years for drug trafficking, Starostin entered a 12-step recovery program. Shes been clean for almost three years. I was just determined that I didnt want to die, she said, noting she came close to death several times. It was time to do something different. Nothing changes if nothing changes, and that hit me and I was like, Ok, I need to change. Today, Starostin is a member of ASAPs recovery committee, which provides support for people affected by substance use disorders. She uses her story to motivate others and to help them find their purpose in life. Her advice to addicts: No matter how many times you fall, you keep getting back up. It took me 20 times. I went through detox and stuff like that. No matter how far down the scale youve gone, you really can do it. You just have to keep it at. Starostin and Rousseau agreed there needs to be continual awareness regarding the negative stigma and negative perceptions associated with substance abuse and addiction. One of the No. 1 reason people dont seek treatment is because of the stigma, Rousseau said. People dont feel comfortable talking about their opioid issues or their drug issues, so they dont know where to go. ASAP speakers also said more opportunities are needed to assist people in recovery to reintegrate back into society. There needs to be greater access to jobs, housing, health care and so on, they said. They also pointed out that it can be especially difficult for those that have a criminal record for drug-related offenses, even after theyve become clean. ASAP recovery committee co-chair Kellie Walker, who also spoke during the seminar, put it this way: Theres lot of things people in recovery need other than just getting sober and taking the substance away. What happens when somebody gets sober and they cant find a job? Theyre going to likely go back to some of those behaviors, Walker said.SEMINAR, from page 1A General Obligation Bond IssuesPasco County is asking voters to approve four general obligation bond issues during the Nov. 6 general election. The bonds would be repaid over a 30year period through additional charges on tax bills. The charge will appear on the bills as voter approved debt service. Here are the four different bonds, and the estimated annual charge on a home assessed at $100,000.JAIL EXPANSION Bond:$132,150,000Average annual impact on taxpayer:$16.75Details: Currently, taxpayers pay $2 million to house inmates outside of Pasco County because the countys jail has reached capacity. The bond issue would pay for a jail expansion.FIRE SERVICE Bond:$70,200,000Average annual impact on taxpayer:$8.89Details: The county would build four new fire stations in areas that dont have any fire stations and replace five outdated stations. It also would add 10 new emergency vehicles and would construct a new Fire Rescue Training Facility.PARKS Bond:$20,200,000Average annual impact on taxpayer:$2.55Details:Projects would be done at all district, wilderness and neighborhood parks. Existing athletic facilities would be improved. Recreational complexes, community centers and aquatic centers would be renovated.LIBRARIES Bond:$18,600,000Average annual impact on taxpayer:$2.35Details:The countys libraries were built in or before the 1980s. The bond issue would be used to upgrade and remodel library branches.If all four bond issues pass, the total average annual impact on taxpayers owning a home assessed at $100,000 would be $30.54. B.C. MANIONPasco County Administrator Dan Biles explains how the county would spend proceeds from four proposed general obligation bonds during a breakfast meeting of The Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. BRIAN FERNANDESChief Scott Cassin gave opening remarks on Sept. 17 at the development site for the future Fire Station 38 in Wesley Chapel. Cassin oversees all Pasco County fire stations.
16A www.LakerLutzNews.com September 26, 2018 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports Faster tter Back to be r. r. sco | W Central Pa We e sley Chapel By Kevin Weisskweiss@lakerlutznews.comWith five weeks of high school football in the books, the midway point of the 2018 season has been reached. HereÂ’s a look at some of the storylines and highlights from schools in The Laker/Lutz News coverage area: BOISTEROUS BULLDOGS No Charles Harrison III? No problem. The Zephyrhills High Bulldogs have maintained their winning ways, even without the prolific and record-setting signal-caller, who graduated last season and now plays for Division III Brevard College in North Carolina. The Bulldogs offense (29.3 points per game) isnÂ’t quite as prolific as last season when Harrison III was under center (41 points per game), however, theyÂ’ve managed with a balanced attack through the air and ground. Meanwhile, an extremely stingy defense (13 points allowed per game) has made life difficult for the opposition. Zephyrhills could foreseeably run the table for the regular season, considering just one of its remaining foes has a winning record Â— Wesley Chapel High School, at 3-2 overall Â— and thatÂ’s a home game, where the Bulldogs are 13-2 since 2016. Further, the Bulldogs arguably have the most talented squad in Pasco County, with bona fide Division I FBS talent in receiver/defensive back JaÂ’quan Sheppard and running back/defensive back Cartrell Strong, among other future college prospects. Also noteworthy: Bulldogs third-year head coach Nick Carroll is off to one of the best coaching starts in county history, with a remarkable 23-5 record since taking over for former coach Reggie Roberts in 2016. That includes 13 straight regular season wins dating back to last season. GALVANIZED GATORS The hiring of Chad Walker, a first-time high school head football coach, is thus far paying off for the Land OÂ’ Lakes High Gators. At 3-1, the Gators are off to their best start since 2013, when the program last had a winning season and finished 8-2. Whatever happens the remainder of 2018, this season will go down in lore for Land OÂ’ Lakes. ThatÂ’s because the Gators broke an eight-game losing streak in the annual Butter Bowl rivalry game against Sunlake High, with a convincing 34-25 home win on Sept. 14. The historic win also coincided with the renaming of the press box at John Benedetto Stadium to the Mike Connor Family Press Box, after the longtime athletics booster and former Voice of the Gators. Besides a road game against Mitchell High on Oct. 26, the Gators have a manageable slate and very well could complete whatÂ’s been a long time coming: a winning season. It also doesnÂ’t hurt that the Gators have one of the countyÂ’s top offensive playmakers in senior tailback Kyle Leivas, whoÂ’s already tallied 613 rushing yards and six total touchdowns, including two straight 200-yard rushing performances against, respectively, Cypress Creek Middle High (224 yards on 25 carries) and Sunlake (223 yards on 19 carries). COOL, CONFIDENT COYOTES After going winless in its first season as a program, victories are finally coming to the Cypress Creek Middle High Coyotes and second-year head coach Mike Johnson. The upstart program already has two wins on the year, against Bishop McLaughlin Catholic and Pasco high schools. Also, unlike last season, the Coyotes actually have a senior class. Among the 12 seniors, the Coyotes have received significant contributions from tailback/safety Tim Ford-Brown, receiver/linebacker/punter Quinton Spears and receiver/safety/defensive end Devin Santana, among others. Meantime, twin brothers Jehlani Warren, a junior quarterback, and Jalen Warren, a junior receiver, have made the Coyotes a fun watch, as theyÂ’ve hooked up for a bevy of big plays and touchdowns this season. Going forward, expectations should remain modest for a program stepping into the ever-growing competitive area. Yet, donÂ’t be shocked if the Coyotes pull out another win or two before the end of the 2018 season. SLOW START, STRONG FINISH? While Land OÂ’ Lakes High is experiencing its best start in years, crosstown rival Sunlake High is struggling with a 1-3 mark. Besides Land OÂ’ Lakes, the Seahawks have faced stiff competition out of the gate, losing to Wiregrass Ranch High and to Zephyrhills High, in overtime. The Seahawks did, however, open the season with a 25-0 road win over Wesley Chapel High Â— never an easy task. The second half of the season shouldnÂ’t be quite as daunting. However, it does include a string of three straight road games in October against Cypress Creek, Pasco and Brooksville Central high schools, respectively. Interestingly, Sunlake also started off 1-3 last season, before rolling to a 4-6 finish Â— its first losing season since 2009.COURTESY OF ZEPHYRHILLS HIGH SCHOOLThe Zephyrhills High Bulldogs have successfully built off last seasonÂs 10-2 campaign with a 4-0 start in 2018.

SEPTEMBER 26, 2018The LAKER/ INSIDE: Directories, Classifieds, Games & MoreThe LAKER/ Lutz NEWSLutz NEWS B By B.C. Manionbcmanion@lakerlutznews.comFor decades, itÂ’s been the place to be on Saturdays Â— for hundreds of players, cheerleaders, coaches and spectators. The Lutz Chiefs, celebrating the leagueÂ’s 40th year this season, has offered boys and girls a chance to play and an opportunity to develop their athletic skills, whether it be as football players or as cheerleaders. The leagueÂ’s cheer squads and teams are open to children ages 5 through 14. The league also has contributed to the sense of community that Lutz enjoys, as parents on the sidelines get to know other parents, and players get to know children from different schools who compete on the same teams. On Sept. 29, the league is hosting a reunion for Chiefs alumni, which theyÂ’re dubbing Â“The Greatest Show on Turf.Â” The event begins with games starting at 9 a.m., a varsity game at 3 p.m., and a Family Food and Fun Fest, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event take place at Oscar Cooler Sports Complex, 656 W. Lutz Lake-Fern Road in Lutz. The league also is hosting a Great Gatsby Gala on Oct. 5, at Cheval Country Club, intended to raise money to pay for a shade cover for the bleachers Â— so spectators can be more comfortable while watching their children or grandchildren play, said Amy Lancaster, Lutz Chiefs director. The league was established in 1978 and, since then, the football teams have won more than 19 different Super Bowl Titles, and the cheerleaders have won 17 different league titles, Lancaster said. The leagueÂ’s home is the Oscar Cooler complex Â— named for the man who attended hundreds of meetings of the Hillsborough County Commission to persuade commissioners to buy an orange grove so the community could build itself a place for youth sports. Over the years, the complex has evolved and improved, but the community spirit that created it so many years ago remains intact. There are some families who have been involved with the Lutz Chiefs for generations. Â“Right now, we have a coach that coached in the Â’80s. HeÂ’s now helping his son coach his grandson,Â” Lancaster said. Â“So, we have three generations on the field.Â” Currently, there are around 140 kids involved, between football and cheer. Plus, there are about 40 volunteer parents and coaches, she said. But, itÂ’s not just about football and cheerleading, Lancaster said. Â“WeÂ’re making young men and women. ItÂ’s not just about the sports. ItÂ’s about cultivating character and commitment to something, and (to) our community,Â” the director said. ThereÂ’s a sense of connection and camaraderie, Lancaster added. Â“I was at Publix (on Lutz Lake Fern and North Dale Mabry Highway) the other day. It felt like half our team was there,Â” Lancaster said. Stacy Turk, who grew up in Lutz, said that the leagueÂ’s longevity speaks well for it. Her family is heavily involved in the program. Her daughters, 11-year-old Taylor and 9year-old Tylar are cheerleaders. Her 6-yearold son, Porter, plays flag football and her husband, Jason, is the head coach for flag football. Turk said she genuinely loves The Lutz Chiefs because of the outpouring of love that coaches display, and because of the structure the league provides for youths. Â“ItÂ’s awesome to see the compassion that these coaches, on the field Â— whether itÂ’s cheer or football Â— have for their players,Â” Turk said. Â“My kids look forward to going.Â” The Lutz Chiefs was associated with the Pasco Police Athletic League for nearly 30 years before joining the Tampa Bay Youth Football League in 2010. Over the years, it has helped prepare young athletes, who have gone on to play at the high school, college and National Football League levels. For all football-related inquiries, contact Rick Brodsky, athletic director, at (813) 786-6754 or email@example.com. For any cheer-related inquiries, contact Maggie Brodsky, cheer director, at (813) 786-2370 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Lutz Chiefs at 40: ItÂ’s time to celebrate!

The Pet Resource Center in Hillsborough County offers these key pointers: Make sure your pets county registration tag is up to date, and take a trip to the vet to update all vaccinations, get a microchip and extra medications. Create a disaster kit and ID packet for your pet. The kit should include a seven-day supply of food and water per pet, waste disposal items, pet medication, and comfort items like a favorite toy or blanket. The (waterproof) ID packet should contain your contact information and family veterinarian information, the microchip and county pet registration tag numbers, and information regarding medical needs. Arrange for a place for your pet to stay, like a family members or friends house, or pet-friendly hotel (Visit PetFriendlyTravel.com). Be sure they are on your evacuation route and not in a flood zone. Get a cage or carrier that is easy to transport, and large enough for your pet to stand up in and move around in. Public pet-friendly shelters should only be used as a last resort. If a pet-friendly shelter is necessary, take note: Only domesticated pets are allowed in pet-friendly shelters. Livestock like horses, cows, chickens and pigs are not allowed.

PASCO TAX COLLECTOR ADDS CUSTOMER ADVOCATEPasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano has added a customer advocate to the agencys staff. Samantha Bisconti, formerly a customer service representative for the agency, recently took over the duties for this new position. The position was created because of the myriad issues that impact customers of the tax collectors office that go beyond the general scope of motor vehicles, property taxes and related issues, according to a news release from Fasanos office. Samantha has already demonstrated a strong grasp of the importance of assisting people, helping them find answers to their problems, and generally helping those who may not know where else to turn, Fasano says, in the release. Her experience working on the front-line of our office, as well as her understanding of issues important to Pasco residents, illustrates what an asset she is and will continue to be to this agency and to the customers we serve. If you need assistance with any issues that Bisconti may be able to help you with, call her at (727) 847-8165, ext. 2781.CHAMBER NOMINATIONSNominations are being accepted for the North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerces annual Excellence in Business awards.

Her husband Sam Williams was a loving and dedicated partner for her in the last 16 years of life. Mary loved her biological son, Matt, fully and unconditionally. She made many sacrifices to ensure that her son had positive opportunities and a stable home. Mary enjoyed drawing, making jewelry, and doing crafts. She liked to sing, laugh, shop, and spend time with loved ones and pets. She was outgoing and enjoyed interacting with people she didnt know; they were instantly converted from strangers to friends. Mary suffered for many years due to the trauma she endured at the hands of abusers and collaborators. She should be celebrated for the extent to which she was able to overcome the intense psychological pain of childhood sexual abuse and incest. Mary was pre-deceased by her father Russell V. Wallauer, her mother Margaret J. S. Wallauer, and her oldest brother Russell Wallauer. She is survived by her husband Sam Williams and her son Matthew Bradley. Marys living siblings include: Margaret (Margie) Bradley, Kathleen (Kathy) Ragsdale, Patricia Welch, Michael Wallauer, William (Bill) Wallauer, Elizabeth (Betty) Bradley, Joseph Wallauer, James Wallauer, and Lura Lee. Mary was supported in her deep faith in Jesus Christ and trust in the Holy Spirit by Pastor Dr. Gloria Harris and the congregation of the Faith Deliverance Church. Surviving family members and fellow sexual abuse survivors request that, in lieu of flowers, you make donations to Rape Abuse and Incest National Network at http://www.RAINN.org. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Faith Deliverance Church, for the celebration of life, with a private ash ceremony.
