TheLAKER AUGUST 10,2011 FREE Zephyrhills/Dade City Edition Remembering 9/11 Do you have a personal connection to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks? As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11,we want to hear from you. Contact Community Editor B.C. Manion at bcmanion@cnewspubs.com or (813) 909-2800. Pasco puts bite into parking feesCounty give park workers authority to issue ticketsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comPasco Parks and Recreation Department workers and police officers have at least one thing in common.Both can now write tickets to enforce user fees for the county's 11 regional parks. County commissioners voted 4-1 on July 26 to give park workers the authority to write tickets to those not complying with the $2 fee to park at the regional sites. The lone no vote came from Commissioner Jack Mariano,who represents much of the county's park-intensive Gulf coast.Mariano has opposed the fee since it began last year and was less than pleased with giving authority to write tickets to parks workers. "I hear from citizens and business owners around the parks on the water and they all hate the fees,"Mariano said."It's hurting business and driving people away from the parks." While the fees may not be popular,parks director Rick Buckman said they are the only way to prevent closing recreation facilities,either for several days a week or permanently."We've lost more than 30 percent of our budget during the last three years and we're losing another $470,000 next year,"Buckman said."We needed to find a way to come up with more funds for the department and user fees was the best way to do that."Commissioner Pat Mulieri said the fees are the best way to preserve services for the public. "We had several public meetings last year to hear what the public wanted us to do,"Mulieri said."Most people said they didn't want parks closed.They didn't want us to raise taxes on everyone,so it was determined the best thing to do was charge those who use the parks the most." The flaw in the system was parks workers had no authority to enforce the fees. The plan was for the department to raise $691,000 this year,but it has collected only 20 percent of that goal."All we could do was call the police like anyone else,"Buckman said."That isn't the best use of their time to come out and write tickets for parking violators at the parks."Buckman said he doesn't want to see workers writing tickets left and right either. "Hopefully people will understand there are consequences and just pay the $2 to park,"Buckman said."It's the best thing for the parks they enjoy and it's cheaper than a ticket." Mariano suggested using part of the $1.1 million given to the county by Sheriff Chris Nocco,which was left over from this current fiscal year,to plug the shortfall.That money is currently pegged to help with balancing the 2011-12 budget. "We just have to make the decision that we're going to fund the parks the way we built them,"Mariano said.He then added, Jack Mariano Color Guard at Reagan Day DinnerThe Zephyrhills High School Color Guard presented the U.S. and Florida flags for the pledge of Allegiance at the Republican Party of Pasco County's Reagan Day Dinner.

Often referred to as a "back-to-school" tax holiday,the state's sales tax holiday allows consumers to purchase items of apparel priced at $75 or less,sales taxfree.The same goes for school supplies which are priced individually at $15 or less,according to the state's Department of Revenue website. This year's sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m.Friday,Aug.12 and runs through 11:59 p.m.Sunday,Aug.14. The sales tax holiday is not restricted to shoppers of a certain age and does not require any proof that someone is heading back to school,said Renee Watters,of the Florida Department of Revenue. The tax holiday creates a bit of a buzz among retailers who sell back-to-school merchandise,said John Fleming,director of communications for the Florida Retail Federation. "It's sparked a lot of competitiveness,"Get a break during tax holiday See PARKING,page11 See BREAK,page11Pasco works to prepare for major disastersBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comHurricane Katrina caused mass devastation when it smashed into New Orleans in 2005,and mismanagement of the aftermath may have added to the disaster. Pasco's Office of Emergency Management is preparing for the day the county is dealing with its own Katrina so recovery could happen faster. "We don't want Pasco County to be in the same situation in New Orleans,"said Assistant County Administrator Michele Baker. Baker said both Katrina,which made landfall as a Category 3 storm,and Hurricane Charley,which hit Punta Gorda as a Category 4 in 2004,have put emphasis on disaster planning.In fact,Charley was originally projected to hit the Tampa Bay area, but turned and hit south at the last minute. "When you look at the date,we are overdue for a big storm,"Baker said."It's just a matter of time before a big one hits close to home." Baker said the focus of the county's planning involves how to get people out of the danger zone."New Orleans did not have a good evacuation plan,"Baker said."That was clear by what happened at the Superdome.There were other problems too.They didn't have any real post-disaster plan in place.That's one reason the relief aid took so long to get there and redevelopment has taken so long."The department had planned to begin including the extension of Ridge Road to help get people from central Pasco to the Suncoast Parkway for quicker evacuation north.However,the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers put a stop to the project late last year because of environmental concerns. The job would have taken Ridge west to connect with the Suncoast and US 41. "That project was only designed to help with evacuation during a storm,"said county Commissioner Pat Mulieri."It would havePlanning for the worst Hurricane Charley's path in 2004. The Category 4 storm narrowly missed hitting the Tampa Bay area.

The budget calls for the elimination of 11 full-time and three part-time positions as part of a belt-tightening effort during lean financial times. Three full-time positions within the Zephyrhills Police Department crime prevention supervisor,sergeant and school resource officer already were vacant.City Manager Jim Drumm has recommended not filling those positions. Councilmen Lance Smith and Charlie Proctor expressed concerns about the staffing at the police department following an Aug.2 incident in which ZPD Officer Kevin Widener was shot at several times while trying to stop a speeding car. Proctor said Widener and other ZPD officers deserve a large amount of thanks from the city and from the community for willingly putting their lives on the line. Widener was not injured in the incident. Three suspects remained at large Aug.9 A nationwide manhunt is on for their arrest. The public should not get the perception there are fewer police officers on the street as the result of the budget Zephyrhills is considering,Drumm said. A lieutenant within the police department is working on the road performing some of the duties done by the former sergeant.The school resources officer and crime prevention supervisor did not workPublic safety tops city budget discussionsSee BUDGET,page11

By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comWith its lime green walls,curved orange counters and modernistic white chairs, Frogury has a signature style that makes it look and feel like a chain. That's intentional. The owners of self-service frozen yogurt shop are hoping it will be just the first of many of its kind. "We wanted to do this one first,learn, and then see if we wanted to continue on doing the chain.So far,so good.We've had a great response so far,"said Joshua Candamo,one of the shop's owners. The plan is to open two more of the shops in Tampa within a year,although locations have not been selected yet. "We like to think of yogurt as being fun, tasty and fresh,"said Candamo,who owns the business along with Tomas Echarte,a friend he met when they were students at the University of South Florida. The shop opened in New Tampa at 6431 E.County Line Road,Suite 110 on July 23.It specializes in frozen yogurt,fruit salads,fresh fruit juices,espresso,cappuccino and lattes. "We've had a great response so far," Candamo said. "Our target audience in here is family first.The kind of music we have will always be safe for kids.The entertainment we're going to have on the weekends is always going to be for the families,"he said. The frozen yogurt is served from dispensers bearing the Yogury brand name.Flavors include Tahitian vanilla, classic chocolate,cake batter,very strawberry,mango sorbet,cherry amaretto and California tart. "You start there with a base.Our base is always going to be healthy, Candamo said. "You'll always see us trying to give the choice to the client,"Candamo said,adding patrons are encouraged to try a sample of as many flavors as they'd like. Toppings range from seasonal fruits to assorted candies.There's also fruit puree sauces as well as caramel,white chocolate, sugar free dark chocolate and dark chocolate toppings. Once they finish topping off their yogurt,they are charged by the ounce. Most customers spend between $2.50 and $4.50 on a treat,Candamo said. The shop also serves 15 kinds of lattes, with flavors including caramel,peppermint,toffee nut and white chocolate,just to mention a few. The idea is to offer variety. "You can come here with your kids and everyone can get whatever they want," Candamo said. "We have the sweets.We have the tarts. We have the sorbets.We have the traditional flavors.We empower the client with a choice,thinking they're going to make the right choice because you know what's good for you." There are choices for vegans,too. Fresh fruit juices also are sold at the shop.They are squeezed by hand with no sugar or water added,Candamo said. The shop is open daily,from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. The shop's icon is a heart,which it incorporates into some of its designs.It stands for having a healthy heart,Candamo said."It's nice that we have a healthy alternative."

8/31/11.CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER August 10,2011 3 By Zack Petersonzpeterson@cnewspubs.comTucked among the numerous storefronts at The Shops at Wiregrass lies Sim City Golf,a business dedicated to providing a unique indoor golf experience to golfers of all ages and skill levels with the Golf Blaster 3D simulator. Sim City Golf has offered this technology to golfers since June 1,helping golf enthusiasts enjoy their game sans the sweltering summer heat. Originally,Sim City Golf was jump-started from the partnership of Tim Polce,Fred Bender and their overseas partner,Jan Burger.Both PGA pros and golf enthusiasts,Polce and Bender found that the simulated Golf Blaster 3D experience was extremely popular."We have a learning center at the Pasadena Hills Golf Resort in Zephyrhills," Polce explained."And my partner (Bender) and I have another Golf Blaster 3D machine at that facility. "It's very popular up there so we decided to expand and bring it down here." The technology itself relies on sensors. According to Polce,the simulator is coated with sensors from the tee pad to the ceiling and even on the floor."It's extremely accurate,"Polce said."It's definitely more than just a video game." Each of the four Golf Blasters at Sim City Golf contains a multitude of options.Golfers can enjoy a digital round of golf at one of 60 world famous courses,practice on a high-tech driving range that gives in-depth analysis of each shot,play a round of putt-putt golf or even challenge friends to a game of target golf or "breaking windows." "It's a good alternative,"Polce said."You're going to hit all the same shots that you would outside but without sweating." Prior to the Golf Blasters success,Polce and Bender had been looking for adequate simulator technology for the past couple years.According to Polce,the Golf Blaster was "the best ball measuring system of all the simulators." But Sim City Golf offers more than just an alternative to golfing in extreme heat;it also offers its customers beer,wine,weekend tournaments and even lessons given on the simulator.Alongside fitted clubs and opportunities for golfers of all handicaps,Sim City Golf strives to provide its customers with a complementary experience. "We like to stay up late and provide all this so that people have something to do," Polce said. For those interested in booking a tee time at Sim City Golf,they are available up to three days in advance and can be reached at (813) 973-2222."You know you've got something good when even the good golfers like it,"Polce said."We want to get people interested in this."Sim City Golf offers new digital golf experience Sim City GolfThe Shops at Wiregrass29329 Paseo Drive,Suite #1130 Wesley Chapel Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. 9 p.m. Sunday 12 p.m. 6 p.m. www.simcitygolf.com Simulators can be rented out at a flat rate starting at $30-40 per hour for any size partyThe Pasadena Hills Golf Resort also features "The Golf Blaster 3D simulator" 7031 Whitney Ashton Lane,Zephyrhills (813) 857-5430 Fred Bender, one of the owners, checks on Conner and Spencer Moreland during their match.

Eight years ago,Rapp was a firefighter/paramedic,fresh out of the Army Rangers and ready for whatever life could throw at him.Then one evening,while out with his wife and friends at a bar,he walked out to his car to put his phone away when Rapp said a gang of a dozenplus men approached him,looking to take his money. Rapp managed to successfully fend them off,in part,he said,due to his Army Ranger training.Out of fear,he quickly attempted to escape with his wife before anything else could happen. However,the cops showed up,saw the knocked-out gang members and assumed the worst. Rapp said they hauled him out of his car,and when they found him still standing,assumed he was a threat. He was charged with multiple felonies, including battery on law enforcement. "That moment,"he said,"changed my life considerably." Ultimately,the battery charges were dropped.Court records show Rapp was sentenced to probation on lesser charges; Rapp said he completed an anger management class.ChangeThat moment made Rapp re-evaluate his life and everything he had come to know.Wanting to make a new beginning, Rapp opened The Program of Land O' Lakes at the Impact Sports Academy with the goal of providing the community with a sports center and an after-school care environment.The Program provides 12-18 year olds with a safe environment after school that Rapp believes they can't find elsewhere. "It's so dangerous out there these days," Rapp said."There's kids getting tangled up in the wrong thing one time and it kills them. "It leaves kids to fend for themselves after the bell rings at 2,and we want to be here for those kids who are too old for after-school programs." His idea came to life July 16 with the grand opening of The Program.StruggleBut getting there was no small feat. After the major conflict,what came next was the most challenging.Eight long years passed by,with Rapp struggling each day to overcome damage done to his back during the incident. But soon,he found it affected too much of his everyday life.He couldn't pick up a stretcher.Couldn't do his job.Couldn't do anything.Rapp had to quit his job.Beyond that,his commitment floundered in other areas of his life too. His involvement as the assistant wrestling coach at Pasco High also decreased as his injury worsened. "As I grew worse and worse,I just couldn't handle it,"Rapp said. Forced to work odd construction jobs here and there,Rapp continued his struggle as he tried to provide for his family.RecoveryIt wasn't until May that Rapp finally had reconstructive surgery done. After visiting surgeon Dr.Anthony Moreno,Rapp discovered that treatment was available and do-able.The surgery was performed,Rapp said,without any complications. Recovery brought its own series of challenges. Lying in bed late one night,Rapp woke up suddenly in pitch darkness to discover he was covered in blood.It coated the side of his body and bubbled in one massive pool between his legs. According to Rapp,his catheter came unattached and wasn't fixed,causing blood to flow back out of his vein freely. Rapp believes that had he not woken up so late at night,he wouldn't have made it to where he is today. "I can tell you what it's like being in a room full of machine gun fire and know that you're not supposed to have these memories and live.But I knew that this was the closest I was to ever truly dying," Rapp said. "It was a sign from God that I made it," Rapp said."It made me realize I need to be thinking,I have one shot on this merry-goround of life,how can I do something great for my community?'" That's when Rapp emerged,after eight years of strenuous turmoil,a new man ready to make a change.New BeginningLuckily for Rapp,the change came to him. "My neighbor came to my door one day while I was resting and asked if I was interested in working with wrestling again and kids." From there,The Program pieced itself together. Rapp went and spoke to local churches asking for volunteers for his new project to help watch the kids and assist them with minor homework-related problems. He bought a bus.He went out spreading the word and hiring instructors for the various classes he hopes to have. Officially,The Program is a nonprofit organization,and it offers indoor batting cages,softball,wrestling,martial arts,gymnastics,cheerleading and group fitness. For the after-school care,Rapp also contracted Knowledge Points learning program for those children who need further assistance or tutoring. "We made it,"Rapp said."Our expectations for this are way up high and we're not quite there yet,but we've had a great response and everyone's ecstatic. "We're just going to keep getting better and provide for the community in every way possible." The Program can be reached at (813) 909-8815 and is located right off Land O' Lakes Boulevard on Carson Drive.The Incident prompts launch of The Program Eric Rapp, a long-time wrestler, works one on one with Jared Norton. Wrestling is just one of the many activities Rapp offers at The Program among martial arts, baseball, softball and group fitness. (Photo by Zack Peterson)

Melissa Villeneuve of Lutz is an extreme Harry Potter fan.By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThis week,our final installment of What's in a Name will look into how Wiregrass and Zephyrhills got their names. (1) WIREGRASS RANCH is named after an actual ranch owned by the Porter family,which bought 14,000 acres of land in the section of Wesley Chapel in 1941. The ranch stretched from east of New River in Pasco County down into Lutz and New Tampa in Hillsborough County. Today,the Porters own about 5,000 acres of the original land. The Porters,who still raise cattle on the land,first moved to the area in 1946. At that time,the area was known as Gatorville,the name used to mail things to the town. A variety of wild grass known as wiregrass grows naturally in the area,which grew thick enough to make walking through large portions of the fields nearly impossible when the Porters first bought the land. It was not until 1950 when a friend of the Porters,Ed Madill,sent the family a postcard while on vacation in Mexico. Madill did not have the Porter's address, so he sent it to Wiregrass Porter, Gatorville,FL USA.It made it to the family's home and the name Wiregrass stuck. Today,Wiregrass Ranch is generally associated with the area of Wesley Chapel near the intersection of SR 56 and Bruce B.Downs Boulevard,including The Shops at Wiregrass and Wiregrass Ranch High. The Porters started selling large parts of the original ranch in 1972,with Saddlebrook Resort as the first buyer.The next year the land for Meadow Pointe was sold to a developer.The Shops at Wiregrass opened in 2008 and has more than 100 businesses. (2) ZEPHYRHILLS was first named March 10,1910.Before it became Zephyrhills,the area in east Pasco County was called Abbott,after a local doctor named J.M.Abbott.The former town became known as Abbot Station after two train depots were opened within it. Howard Jeffries,a retired Union Army captain,first came to central Florida looking for a land to farm to supplement his pension. In 1909,Jeffries bought 35,000 acres of land from James Lee Greer,who owned Greer Sawmill.Jeffries first planted the property in 1910. Zephyrhills was officially incorporated as a city in 1914 when the Zephyrhills Colony Co.was formed. There are two stories as to how the city got its name.The first comes from when Jeffries signed the contract to buy the land.The deal happened on top of LeHeup Hill between Zephyrhills and Dade City.The word Zephyr actually means breezes,so the name Zephyrhills stuck. The other speculation is the first person to survey the city had either a first or last name of Hill. For additional information on these areas and how they got their names,visit www.fivay.org. *This concludes The Laker and the Lutz News series on how historic places were named.Information is provided by interviews with Pasco County historian Jeff Miller of Fivay.org and the West Pasco Historical Society.WHAT'S IN A NAMEWiregrass,Zephyrhills round out naming series HEALTH & WELLNESS Treating fibromyalgia courseFoundation for Wellness Professionals and Quantum Vitality Centres will host a class at Seven Oak's Club House,2910 Sports Core Circle in Wesley Chapel,on Wednesday,Aug.10 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.The event will let people know about ways to treat fibromyalgia without drugs.

it's difficult.It's hard to find the time to eat healthy.Especially,if you have a family,you want to keep healthy food in the house.You won't find the variety of food that we have in a grocery store."You'd find yourself going to many stores and spending countless hours and still not being able to find what we have,"Papesh said."We just want to make it very,very easy for people,"Tizer said. Besides having access to a variety of organic fruits and vegetables,patrons can rest assured that they're getting genuine organics,Papesh said."We're strictly organic.All of the farms and distributors that we use are 100 percent certified USDA (U.S.Department of Agriculture) organic.So,our customers know that everything they're getting is organic,and that comes with the labels on each of the individual items,"she said. "We try to buy local as much as possible," Papesh said. During the local growing season,the company will buy as much local produce as possible,Papesh said.At other times,they buy from distributors of organic produce. "Our menu varies on a weekly basis," Papesh said. Last week's small fruit and veggie combo box,for instance,include oranges,a cucumber,a mango,spinach,carrots,apples,corn and grapes. "We take suggestions from our customers and we try to keep a good variety in the boxes."We've got some staple items,like apples,bananas,we'll do every week.We'll always do a leafy green. "We try to do like one item that you may not necessarily buy all of the time at the grocery store.Keep it fresh for the customer.If we ever do something that you may not have heard of,or you've never bought,then we'll put something in our email that goes out,like try this recipe,or cook it like this,store it like this,"Papesh said. The idea is to keep customers informed and to do the legwork for them,she said. The company makes its deliveries on Tuesdays,at the moment.As it grows,it plans to increase its deliveries. "We ask that everyone leave a cooler out and some ice packs,just to keep it as fresh and crisp as possible.We do put an ice pack in with the delivery." The company also has a website that is very easy to use,Papesh said.It was developed by Tizer's business partner,Wayne Pierson,who lives in California.For more information about Tampa Bay Organics,visit www.tampabayorganics.com, call (813) 949-1112 or email hello @tampabayorganics.com Outside Sales PositionCLOSE TO HOME Tired of commuting to work and the high price of gas?

People want to eat healthy,but they don't have time to track down the good fruits and vegetables they need. So this Lutz-based company will do that job for them by delivering the fresh fruits and veggies wherever the customer wants them their front door,back porch,business, even a neighbor's house. It's a customer-driven business,said Jessica Papesh,the marketing director of the company,located on the west side of US 41, just south of SR 54. The company makes deliveries once a week in a market area that stretches from Clearwater to Plant City,Ruskin to Shady Hills. The service area will continue to expand as the service grows,Papesh said. Customers choose how often they want deliveries and decide whether they want a small,medium or large box of produce.They also select whether they want all veggies,all fruit,or a combination.The prices are $29.50 for a small box;$38 for a medium box;and $47.50 for a large box. They can indicate if there's a fruit or vegetable that they never want,and they can make up to three substitutions for items in every delivery,Papesh said. "These days,people want exactly what they want,and I don't blame them,"said Al Tizer,one of the company's owners. The company guarantees the quality of its produce."You don't get charged until the day after your delivery,so we can make sure everything makes it to you safe and sound," Papesh said. Tizer said he's not aware of any other business in the Tampa Bay region that provides a home delivery service for organic produce. The service provides a convenient source of fresh organics. "The fact that it's brought to your doorstep,it just can't be beat,"Papesh said. "People want to save time.When you're busy and you want to lead a healthy lifestyle,Produce sprouts legs Jessica Papesh shows off a bunch of carrots, one of many kinds of fresh vegetables delivered by Tampa Bay Organics.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER August 10,2011 8 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comOn Aug.1,15 young ladies piled their way into a brightly lit gym.Some of them know each other like sisters,while others have barely met,but all have one thing in mind. Suddenly the 15 come together as one in a huddle and break with a mighty shout of "Quistas."It's the first day of practice for the Pasco-Hernando Community College volleyball team;the defending National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) Division II national champions. The Conquistadors posted a 36-7 record in 2010 en route to becoming the first Florida team to win the Division II title.It is also the first athletic national championship of any kind for the school. "We had a great group of girls coming into last season,"said PHCC coach Kim Whitney."The year before they came up with goals and were literally one off of everything.It was kind of funny because it was in tournaments,GPA,everything.Just one off.It was in their mind coming into last year that we were that close.The good thing was,and this is really rare for a two-year school,most of the players were back.It drove them the whole year." Sophomore outside hitter Torii Koester was a part of the squad that brought home the crown. "It took a lot of hard work,but it was a lot of fun,"Koester said."I've never been on a winning team before,so to accomplish every single one of the goals last year was very special." The squad wanted to set the same goals as prior to the 2010 championship season. "I wouldn't let them do that because this team needs to find its own identity,"Whitney said."Something that is different for them. We'll keep those things a secret for now,but the big thing is they all want back-to-back national championships." Koester set a personal goal as well. "Now I'm one of the sophomores and I know I have to take on more of a leadership role,"Koester said."In fact that is one of the goals I set for myself.I want to help the younger players because I struggled a lot with the difference in college from high school." Whitney said the team will lean on leadership from returners like Koester and team captain Jessica Imbimbo.The right side hitter does not shy away from pressure of being the reigning national champs. "Because we are defending our title,it just puts that much more pressure on us," Imbimbo said."We're held to a higher standard now.We have a target on our back whether we like it or not.Personally I like that pressure,because that's when I get the most out of myself." Imbimbo can hardly contain herself when talking about getting back to the national tournament. "Just the thought of getting back to that national championship;I just can't even put it into words how much I want to get back," Imbimbo said."Feeling that moment and being there.It's just indescribable and I want to share that with this team again this year." Imbimbo knows it will be tough to get back to that point given the ever-changing nature at a two-year school like PHCC "Becoming a team is a huge part,and last year we did that right away,"Imbimbo said. "We fell into that right away and kept becoming closer all the way through.We kept working for each other and making each other better.I think that's why we made it to national championship." Imbimbo will also be counted on to produce on the court as well as in her leadership role.She posted 263 kills,298 digs,48 blocks and 28 aces,all the most of any returning player.Koester had 119 kills, 117 digs,13 aces and 11 blocks last season. The squad returns one middle hitter, Quynn Fonseca and her 20 blocks,23 kills and 27 digs from 2010.The Conquistadors also add freshmen Azya Glass and Lauren Wixted in the middle. PHCC will need to find replacements at setter and libero.Morgan Hill was the primary libero in 2010,putting up a team-high 955 digs while adding 42 aces. Ashley Seal was not only the starting setter last year,but was also the Conquistadors team captain.She led the squad with 1,471 assists and 83 aces plus 375 digs,105 kills and 59 blocks.She was also named the MVP of the NJCAA national tournament. "I look up to Ashley,"Imbimbo said."She's one of my role models in what she did on the court,off the court and in the classroom.She is a very special person and I want to take what I learned from watching her into this year." There are still questions with the defending national champs,but the enthusiasm is running high with the players. "I'm so excited for this season,"Koester said."I can't wait for the season to start.I have goosebumps right now just talking about it."

Exp: 8-31-11Exp: 8-31-11Exp: 8-31-11Mike Smith to lead Zephyrhills wrestlingSPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comZephyrhills High graduate Mike Smith was named the Bulldogs new wrestling coach on Aug.3 and plans to bring some consistency to a program that has had three coaches in as many years. "They want some stability here,"Mike said."They have only had one or two dual matches at home in the last three or four years.We've already got a dual match scheduled for Dec.8 at home and it'll be exciting for the kids to get to compete at home." Bulldogs principal Steve Van Gorden said it was Mike's overall personality and wrestling expertise that separated him from other potential coaches. "I decided to hire coach Smith for his dedication to kids,his strong wrestling knowledge,his personal character and his commitment to the Zephyrhills community," Van Gorden said. Mike,a 1994 graduate,competed at Zephyrhills during his last three years. He qualified for the state meet as a junior and senior while competing at 189 pounds. Mike entered states as a senior with a district and regional title and a 26-2 record,but lost to the eventual state champion by one point. Mike,who was also on the weightlifting and football teams at Zephyrhills,was humbled by the chance to lead the program at his alma mater. "It's a great honor and great responsibility,"Mike said."I want to do well for the kids. The big thing is to give the kids stability and to have a positive impact on them." It is the first time Mike has coached a wrestling program,but he is no novice to leading a squad. Mike has coached the six-man team at Zephyrhills Christian Academy,where he is also the principal,since he started the program four years ago.The Warriors had a perfect 13-0 season capped off by winning the Florida Christian Association of Private and Parochial Schools (FCAPPS) state championship in November. Mike is also the pastor of Fair Haven Baptist Church in Zephyrhills.He said the coaching opportunity was "perfect"because it will not interfere with his coaching the Warriors football team or his responsibilities as a principal or with his church. Mike's brother Dale and Zeke Casaerz, who both attended Zephyrhills,will be his assistants.Casaerz was a state qualifier in high school and wrestled while in the Marines,where he compiled a 28-0 record. "They were both really good wrestlers and will be a big help,"Mike said. The start of the wrestling season is still months away,but Mike is ready to hit the gym and start working to bring home district,regional and state championships during the coming seasons. "The kids are already pumped about the season,"Mike said."They want us to get things going as soon as we can.I'm expecting 30-40 kids to try out.They're excited and so am I,so I think we can do some special things." Mike Smith, right, was named the Zephyrhills wrestling coach Aug. 3. His brother Dale, left, will be one of his assistants.

been a limited access road,so no development along it.We're still working to try and build it,but the Army Corps'ruling has slowed the process greatly." In addition to evacuation,the new plan will include how to quickly and safely resume services after a disaster. "This is an extremely important part of the plan,"said County Administrator John Gallagher,who said the county is working to secure a federal grant to help lay out how to resume such services as garbage pickup, water and electricity.Pasco is vulnerable to a variety of disasters,not just hurricanes and tropical storms, according to County Planner Smita Ambadi.It is especially vulnerable to flooding,as a quarter of the county's roads are in floodplains.There have also been two confirmed tornadoes in Pasco during the last three years, storms which are especially dangerous to those living in the 43,000 mobile homes within the county.Ambadi said the plan will include where to temporarily house if those displaced by a disaster. Additionally,the plan will include how to clear rubble and open hospitals and schools.Commissioner Jack Mariano said the new plan will allow for smoother recovery,but would also allow the local government to maintain more control during the cleanup.For more information on the county's Office of Emergency Management or a detailed evacuation map,visit www.pascoemergencymanagement.com. As a kid, how many times have you heard your mom say, "Stand up straight, shoulders down, butt in, and breathe deeply?" As frustrating as it is to hear, mother was right. Many of us perceive that this is what we are doing, but as my patients quickly learn, our perception can be distorted. It is now my turn to teach my patients to relearn to walk. My patient Dan came in leaning backward, one shoulder down the other up. He was in pain and frustrated. His pain altered his perception and kept him from realizing that he in fact was not standing straight. Pain rules but we can make choices that help to cope with the pain. Often we allow our emotions and uncertainties to rule our life. We lose focus and function. We often distort perceptions as reality. A distorted perception, such as being in intense pain, hinders the making of the Right Choice. Clarity in perspective brings physical,mental,emotional,and spiritual healing.

It also has ripple effects,as nearby businesses such as restaurants often jump on the bandwagon offering discounts to attract customers who are enjoying the state's tax holiday. "A lot of consumers perceive the holiday as something fun,"Fleming said. The tax break acts as a stimulus,increasing foot traffic at retailers selling exempt items,Fleming said. The most common questions that consumers have involve what items qualify for exemption and whether there is a limit regarding how many exemptions they can get,Fleming said. According to the state's website,exempt items include clothing,wallets or bags,including handbags,backpacks, fanny packs and diaper bags.Items such as briefcases,suitcases and other garment bags are not tax-exempt. School supplies are defined as pens, pencils,erasers,crayons,notebooks,notebook filler paper,legal pads,binders, lunchboxes,construction paper,markers, folders,poster board,composition books, poster paper,scissors,cellophane tape, glue,paste,rulers,computer disks,protractors,compasses and calculators. The tax break applies to each exempt item,no matter how many items are sold on the same invoice to a customer.Books,however,are not exempt from sales tax.Clothing and school supplies sold at a theme park,entertainment complex,public lodging establishment or airport are not exempt,either. The law also specifies that items normally sold as a unit cannot be split apart and sold separately.For instance,a pair of shoes that goes for $80 cannot be sold as two separate shoes at $40 each. When clothing items are advertised as "buy one,get one"the retailer cannot sell each item at half-price in order to qualify for the exemption.However,when offering a 50 percent discount,qualifying items under $75 would qualify.BREAK,from page 1 "I'm not comfortable with putting money into reserves when we're cutting the parks." Mariano also made an attempt to convince other commissioners to increase taxes to pay for parks while eliminating the user fees. Commissioner Henry Wilson expressed concern of adding another responsibility on parks workers already stretched to their limits by layoffs and other cuts. "I'm concerned that our staff is already overworked,"Wilson said."Is it going to take away from their day job? Are they OK with this?" Buckman did say several parks workers are somewhat uneasy with writing tickets. "But they understand it has to be done," Buckman said.

The sergeant's position may eventually come back if the city's financial situation improves,Drumm said. The City Council agreed Aug.1 to tentatively set the city's millage rate at $5.999 per $1,000 of assessed property tax value.This is the current tax rate for the fiscal year ending Sept.30. Approving this millage rate would mean many city residents would pay less in property taxes this year because the average value of property within Zephyrhills has declined by three percent. City employees would receive 2.75 percent raises under the proposed budget.This would help to offset a 3 percent contribution they are required to make into the state retirement system. Zephyrhills previously contributed to city workers'retirement funds.A new law,effective July 1,now requires the city employees to pay into the retirement fund. The council plans to discuss the budget again at its next meeting,scheduled for 6 p.m.Monday,Aug.22,in City Council chambers.Also,public hearings on the proposed budget will be held in council chambers at 6 p.m.on Sept.12 and Sept.26. In other business Monday,city council: Agreed to increase by $7,500 the financial support the city will provide to the Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce, brining the total to $10,000. Appointed Zephyrhills High School Principal Steve Van Gorden to fill a vacancy on the Zephyrhills Planning Commission created when Marcus Price moved outside the city limits. Instructed City Attorney Joseph Poblick to prepare a Job Creation Incentive Ordinance similar to one Pasco County commissioners adopted in 2010,giving the city another tool to use in its efforts to attract businesses to locate in Zephyrhills. Learned the city has $1.5 million in the library reserve fund for expansion of the current library or construction of a new one. Learned the city has $3.2 million in the Zephyrhills Nursing Home Fund.Proceeds from this fund may be used to plug some shortfalls.

The school's previous lender the Bank of America filed a foreclosure action in March,but dropped it in April, allowing refinancing talks to continue,according to the school. The academy subsequently paid off its loan to the bank on July 8 and entered into replacement financing with two other entities,said Mark Heller,the academy's headmaster.Heller would not disclose the terms of the financing.He also would not identify the lenders,citing respect for their wish to remain anonymous. But,Heller said,the replacement loan was a good deal.The bank was happy and the school and lenders are happy,too,he said. "The real benefit is that our total amount of what we owe is drastically reduced,"Heller said.And,if things play out right,the school could be in a posture to acquire land for an expansion that would enable it to meet its needs for 100 years, Heller said. "This is a situation that could absolutely transform the footprint and the presence of the school,"Heller said.He said it is too early to discuss particulars. As the school gears up for the coming year,it is expecting its enrollment to exceed 400 students, its highest enrollment to date. That's a far cry from the school's initial enrollment of 32 when it opened its doors in 1992. Over the years,the school's enrollment and physical presence have grown.It now has campuses on both sides of Collier Parkway, just north of SR 54. The campus for the lower division is on the east side of Collier Parkway and the campus for the middle and upper divisions is on the west.The middle and upper campus includes a lake,Spanish mossdraped trees,a converted Georgian mansion and outbuildings designed to match the architectural elements of the main house."We believe in the power of architecture,"Heller said,noting the environment has an effect on students. "They're not going to school in a plain box.They learn appreciation for design and aesthetic elements,"the headmaster said. The attention to detail in the school's architecture is just one example of the conscious decisions that school leaders make in setting a tone for learning and creating an atmosphere that engages students. This is a school where all high school students must take a foreign language, where high school students are expected to conduct scientific research that goes beyond the bounds of typical high school experiences.One hundred percent of the graduates go on to college,with most ac-cepted by their "first choice"college, school leaders say. The school's middle division,for grades five through eight,is broken into subdivisions one for fifthand sixth-graders and the other for seventhand eighth-graders. "If your middle school is sixth through eighth,the gulf between the sixth-grader and the eighth-grader is enormous.It doesn't serve the sixth-graders or the eighth-graders well." In addition to encouraging curiosity and creativity,Academy at the Lakes emphasizes the importance of social skills. "We have a Day of Manners multiple times a year,where we teach kids appropriate social behavior,"Heller said."We think that's a very important asset for them,for their future." Knowing how to dress appropriately is important,too,he said. The school,which serves pre-kindergarten through 12th grade,requires uniforms through eighth-grade and has a dress code for high schoolers. "We try to teach girls that more skin equals less power,"Heller said."When girls err in the dress code,it's either too tight or too short or too revealing. "When boys make mistakes in dress code,it's usually that it's just too sloppy. "We try to teach the boys to be neat. We try to teach the girls not to succumb to being too revealing in their clothes because you actually lose power when you're too revealing." The school's enrollment includes students from Odessa,Lutz,New Tampa,Land O'Lakes,Wesley Chapel and other nearby communities.The base rate for tuition ranges from $8,925 for Pre-K3 to $17,840 for high school.Financial aid is available. The nondenominational school's student body is diverse. "You cannot go to school at Academy at the Lakes and fail to have friends who are a different race,a different religion,a different ethnic background than you,"he said. "We are a very worldly school in Land O'Lakes." And,while it's anticipating its highest enrollment ever,the school is tiny as compared to the community's public schools. The academy's relatively small size works to the student's advantage,Heller said. "When you are in a really big situation, the chance of anonymity is much greater. There is nothing worse than anonymity for teenagers.That's when bad things happen. "Part of the recipe at a small private school is that every student because we're small is that much more important to the functioning of the community," Heller said."Kids thrive when they're important."

By Samantha Taylor Pure Health Studios My latest stop was The Vine,an upscale Lutz restaurant popular for its Mediterranean Californian cuisine that features a large menu selection.They are located at the corner of Van Dyke and Dale Mabry and offer just about anything you could want,including chicken,fish,steak,sushi and pasta.I started with a spinach salad topped with cherry tomatoes,red onions and Chevre goat cheese.It is always good to eat veggies before your main meal. Personally though,I prefer to eat only half of my salad and bring the other half home. Like most restaurants,they bring bread with olive oil for starters.They do creatively present it in bite-sized pieces so if you can discipline yourself to munch on just one or two,you won't break your "calorie bank." I tried a few new things that I would like to share with you.The first meal I ordered was their fresh Maine lobster,which was delicious.The dish comes with linguini,which I asked them to leave off since I wanted to stick to the veggies as my side dish. The lobster also comes with a small amount of delectable cream sauce,so the trick is to not eat the whole thing and save some for later.This way,you can enjoy rich foods without piling on the calories too much.So remember to discipline yourself.It also has caramelized fennel,a delicious new discovery for me. A serving of sautŽed broccolini was also a nice addition to the meal.No matter where I eat,I always tell them to go light with the oil on the veggies.Even though many restaurants use olive oil,it still has a lot of fat in it,so use it sparingly. The other meal I tried for this review (of course, both meals were not consumed in one sitting as I divided the portions for dine-in and take away) was the vegetarian pasta.It is a colorful mix of roasted vegetables and penne pasta;boy, was that fantastic! It's cooked in a vegetable broth and tossed with white wine spinach pesto.It is one of the lightest dishes on the menu and gets a kick from the spices infused into the dish.It may have white pasta,but it's not so bad as long as you don't eat the entire meal in one sitting and you don't eat white pasta all the time.

Matthews puts in about four hours a day at the gym and running,but finding time to practice pole vaulting offers its own challenge. "For pole vaulting there isn't the equipment to do it just everywhere,"Matthews said."Both of us volunteered to help coach at Land O'Lakes High School for the boys and girls teams.That way we could practice and help the kids too." The seasoned veterans not only showed the Gators correct form,but also offered motivation. "(Richard) goes out and does a vault of 11 feet and that gets the kids thinking if these old guys can do it,we should too," Carlton said with a laugh. Both men are retired Matthews after working for 40 years with CSX while Carlton was in customer service. One thing both athletes had to learn after four decades away from competition was to not push themselves too hard. "You don't heal as easily when you get our age,"Carlton said."I remember when we started running I tried to sprint and tore cartilage in my knee.I got it operated on and eight months later ran too hard and tore it again.Then I tried my first triple jump since high school and broke a bone in my foot.It's hard to take it slow. "I think there's some kind of formula where if you're out of competition for 30 or 40 years,you better take two or three years of slow training to get back,"Carlton said. Matthews had to fight through gout and other ankle problems.He said drinking fresh grapefruit,wheatgrass and carrot juice every day helped heal his body. Both athletes said their showing at the senior championships has inspired them to push harder to do better in 2013.Matthews has even built a pole vault setup in his yard to get more practice.Neither have any plans to call it quits stop anytime soon. "Hopefully more people in the area will start doing it too,"Carlton said."There were hundreds of people from Florida at the senior championships,but only us two from Lutz." Next up for both is the Tampa Bay Senior Games Oct.3-14.If either finishes in the top four in any event,they will qualify for the Sunshine State Games in December. Additionally,Carlton is looking for men ages 60-64 interested in playing in the basketball state championship tournament. For more information,email Carlton at bradsbucs@aol.com. "The way I look at it,everyone gets years older,but you don't have to get old," Carlton said."When you're doing this,you don't feel your age.It's like nothing else in the world."

FCINewHope .com By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comBrad Carlton and Richard Matthews competed against some of the best track and field athletes in the nation at the National Senior's Championships in Houston June 1630. It was the first time either has participated in the national event,competing in the 60-64 age group,since they began doing senior events three years ago. "We didn't know this stuff even existed," Carlton,62,said."I went on the computer and searched for track and field.We both competed in high school,but hadn't done anything like this for 40 years.I found this thing called the Sunshine State Games, which is for people right up to 100." The senior's championships,formerly the Senior Olympics,includes track and field events along with basketball,archery and other activities.The games are every two years. Matthews,62,competed in the pole vault,where he came in third with a vault of 9 feet,6 inches.That performance set a new Florida record in Matthews'age group. "It was awesome,"Matthews said."There were a lot of people and the competition was good." Matthews also does the shot put,discus throw,javelin toss and 100 and 200 meter dash,but focused on the one event for the national competition. Carlton,who has lived in Lutz for 20 years,did the triple jump at the championships,coming in sixth.He also competes in the shot put and long jump and plans to pick up the discus and hammer throws this year. "I didn't do as well as I wanted,but it was still cool to go and rub elbows with the top athletes,"Carlton said. For Carlton it's more about the personal competition than trying to beat others. "It's not just you against the competitors; It's you against yourself,"Carlton said."You have to push yourself to get the most out of your body.It's not like football when you're on the other side of a guy.It's about,can you squeeze every last drop out of yourself." Carlton did track in high school while also playing football.Today,he trains about four hours daily. Matthews,who has lived in Lutz for 12 years,grew up in Tampa and attended Plant High.He had the Panthers high jump record with a pole vault of 14 feet,1 3/4 inches for 30 years.Lutz duo proves age only a numberRichard Matthews, left, and Brad Carlton both competed in the National Senior's Championships this year. Matthews came in third in the high jump, while Carlton took sixth in the triple jump. (Photo by Kyle LoJacono)
