Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comAs City Manager Jim Drumm surveys the city of Zephyrhills, he sees places that logically should be in the city, but are not. These are pockets of land within unincorporated Pasco Countys jurisdiction known as enclaves that are surrounded by lots within the city limits. There are other properties that are unincorporated known as pockets that are surrounded on three sides by lots within the citys jurisdiction. On the surface, it doesnt seem to be much of a problem but the situation creates confusion and results in inefficient government services, Drumm said. Theres confusion on both sides. People will call the local police and find out they were surrounded by the city, but the sheriff was actually their law enforcement agency, the city manager said. He offered this example of a See ANNEX, page13

The Laker Park News Staff ReportThe Zephyrhills High School Team that performed the Odyssey Angels problem at the Gulf Coast Odyssey of the Mind competition on Saturday, March 10, 2012, at Rushe Middle School took home first place in its problem area. The all-girl team of six moves on to the state competition at the University of Central Florida on Saturday, April 14. Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state and world level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program. Odyssey of the Mind encourages students to use their creativity toward problem solving so that they can learn skills that will provide them with the ability to solve problems of any size in the future. This group of Bulldogs also earned the Ranatra Fusca Creativity Awards (one of only two acknowledged this year, and the only team to receive this highest honor). This recognition is well deserved for this team, they have been working together since eighth grade and this is their fourth year together as a team. They are now all juniors at Zephyrhills High, where they recruited Cecil James, science teacher at ZHS, as their coach in ninth grade. They are hoping that this is their year to go to world competition, which takes place May 23-26 at Iowa State University.

Heinig, M.DBoard Certified in Internal Medicine Your Health Care Guardian Over 22 years of experience in adult medicine By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspu b s.co mIf Zephyrhills had a first family of shuffleboard, it would be David and Glenna Earle. The two picked up the game about 15 years ago when they began wintering in the east Pasco County community. We both got hooked, Glenna said. The two both have professional status with a number of big wins on their resumes. Glenna took the international womens singles title last year in New Brunswick, Canada. Glennas championship comes with the coveted golden cue. I use it whenever I can, Glenna said. She then added, I never expected to win. Theres a lot of social aspect with internationals, so I was looking forward to that, but not winning. Its the biggest win Ive ever had for sure. David, a member of the Central District Hall of Fame, won his second state singles championship in three years this January. He also claimed the Sunshine States doubles title in 2011 and has 160 of the 200 points needed for induction into the Florida Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame. People ask me where in the world did this guy come from because he really hit the big time a couple years ago, said Earl Ball, who has a record 16 national championships. He started collecting a bunch of points. Hes been winning so much people are looking around wondering where the heck did he come from, and then he goes out and shows how good he is again this year winning the state singles championship. Davids contributions to the game go beyond his play. He is president of both the Central District and the Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club. I think getting into the management side of things has helped my game, David said. The run to shuffleboard success started in 1997 when the couple first escaped the winters of Nova Scotia, Canada. When I came to Florida it was an El Nio, and all the golf courses in Zephyrhills were underwater, David said. I was sitting under a canopy and some guy said to me arent you going to do anything at all down here? I said, I cant go golfing. Theyre all underwater. He took me to the courts at Winters Park, and I put my golf clubs away and havent used them since. That guy was Marshall Leigh, who now lives in Kentucky. Marshall is responsible for a lot of good players in this area, Earle said. He got a lot of people to start playing. He was a good mentor and good tactician. Whenever I wasnt doing well Id go to Marshall and hed fix whatever was wrong. I told someone the other day I wish he was around because Ive got a little glitch in my delivery, and I havent got Marshall on the other end to watch. Hed know if my wrist was off by a couple degrees. Glenna said she was timid at first playing with some of the big guns on Zephyrhills shuffleboard courts. For about three years I only played within the park, and then I started going to other places, Glenna said. Once I started doing that I started winning more. David said he didnt start winning until he stopped emulating others. I just started playing the way I felt, and thats when I started doing better, Earle said. The Earles dont have any set goals for their shuffleboard careers. They both just want to continue to soak up everything the courts have to offer. I like it when the place is full and there arent enough courts for everybody, David said. People start talking to each other while they wait who under normal circumstances dont ever talk with each other. Now theyre sitting for an hour and watch others play and talk about shuffleboard. For me thats a good thing. I want them to get together and enjoy the social aspect.The Earles: shuffleboard royalty David and Glenna Earle have been formidable on the shuffleboard courts since picking up the game 15 years ago.

You get better employees because they have critical thinking skills, but then they can actually pound a nail or push a syringe, or whatever it is, Hagen said. Real-world experiences also help students make informed career choices, he said. College takes such resources these days. It seems to me it is kind of a tragedy when somebody goes through a program and graduates with a degree or even for that matter, they come out of high school and then they go to work in the field that theyve chosen and they discover, This isnt what I thought it was. I dont like it. Employers who provide internships can observe potential employees and help them learn career skills. We realize that the knowledge content of jobs is going up, Hagen said. Part of the problem with todays labor market is the mismatch between what employees know how to do and the skills that employers need. Hagen is pleased by the school districts interest in helping to develop a stronger work force. He hopes companies will be equally enthusiastic about stepping up to the plate. Any business that wants to know more can call Hagen at (888) 607-2726 or send him an email at jhagen@pascoedc.com.

Manionb cmani on@cnewspub s.comA deeper partnership between the countys public schools and employers could strengthen Pasco Countys work force, economic boosters say. The goal is to give students a chance to broaden their learning experiences through internships, apprenticeships, mentoring and other opportunities at local businesses, said John Hagen, CEO and president of the Pasco Economic Development Council (PEDC). A steering committee, led by Hagen, is asking businesses to become more engaged in preparing the local work force. Peter Buczynsky, president of Pharmaworks, a company based in Odessa, said more hands-on training is needed to prepare todays work force. One of the biggest challenges his company faces is finding employees who have practical skills in addition to theoretical knowledge. Theyve never had to put the chain on their bicycle or fix a flat tire or figure out a lawn mower, said Buczynsky, who oversees the company that was named Floridas 2011 Manufacturer of the Year. He also thinks middle school students need opportunities to see whats happening in the work force. Such opportunities might spark a career interest, Buczynsky said, adding: It starts off with exposure. The school district wants to expand internships and other learning opportunities, said Rob Aguis, who oversees the districts 17 career academies. However, it needs more business partners to achieve that, he said. The districts academies focus on various fields. Theres the Academy of Culinary Arts at Land O Lakes High, the Academy of Finance at Sunlake High and the Academy of Automotive Service Technology at Wesley Chapel High. Others include the Academy of Information Technology and the Academy of Medical Professions at Wiregrass High, the Academy of Health at Zephyrhills High and the Academy of Health and the Academy of Building Technologies at Pasco High. Hillsborough County also offers a wide selection of career and technical programs at Steinbrenner, Freedom, Gaither and Wharton high schools. Steinbrenner is a choice school for its culinary and its sports, recreation and entertainment marketing programs. Its offerings also include agritechnology, health and wellness, agricultural communication, digital design, veterinary assisting and teaching assisting. Gaithers selections include nursing assistant, digital design, veterinary assisting, drafting and illustration, accounting operations and agricultural science and service. At Wharton, career and technical offerings include accounting operations, business supervision, digital design, early childhood education, teaching assisting and web design. Freedom also offers web design, animal science and service, marketing, culinary and other career and technical options. Giving students more real-world experiences can reap tremendous dividends, both for students and the local work force, Hagen said.It has the power to transform students and the relationship they have to their own education, and to their own lives, Hagen said. You get a skill set, but you are also going to get a different view of the world. Getting experience in work settings also gives students a competitive advantage in the job market, Hagen said. You dont just know it, he said. You know how to do it. It also benefits employers.Building a stronger work force Peter Buczynsky Breanna Crabtree, a student in Pasco Highs Certified Nursing Assistant program, takes Maria Sanchezs blood pressure.

Wiregrass Ranchs Erin Dodd resigns Erin Dodd resigned as the Wiregrass Ranch girls soccer coach on March 2. (File photo)By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comWiregrass Ranch girls soccer coach Erin Dodd has resigned in order to take a job with a school in Doha, Qatar. Dodd, who is also a teacher at John Long Middle, will leave for the Middle Eastern country this summer to teach at an international school, where she will be for at least two years. This was by far one of the hardest decisions that Ive ever had to make, Dodd said. These opportunities dont come around very often so I felt like I had to take it. Ill be helping out and doing everything I can with the team before I leave and trying to stay as up to date when Im gone.The Bulls have reached new heights since Dodd took over the program two years ago. Wiregrass Ranch has a combined 40-8-2 record during that time, including its first district championship and regional finals appearance in the 2010-11 season. Shes done a great job, said Bulls athletic director Dave Wilson. She really helped make the program into a winner. Before Wiregrass Ranch, Dodd also coached the John Long girls soccer team, posting a combined 30-3-3 record during her four seasons. Dodd shined as a midfielder at Zephyrhills High, where she is still the Bulldogs all-time leading scorer with 147 tallies. She played at the University of Memphis on scholarship. Wilson said there is no timetable for selecting Dodds successor. 18875 State Rd 54 at Sunlake Blvd.Next to Publix 813-949-3644QUALITY DOG & CAT FOOD & TREATSOPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK $5.00 OFFNEXT PURCHASE OF $25 OR MORE Vaccinations, Heartworm Testing, Flea and Heartworm Products Spay & Neuter by Appointment Walk In Shot Clinics on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 12 -2 www.plannedpethoodpasco.org5053 Gall Blvd. Zephyrhills 813 779 7000 Non-Profit Spay, Neuter and Vaccination Clinic Waggin Tails Pet CareWe keep their tails waggin when We keep their tails waggin when you need to be travelin! you need to be travelin! 813-786-1476licensed/bonded/insured licensed/bonded/insured www.waggin-tails-pet-care.com 10% of ALL Profitsgo to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay Maryanne YoungOwner Where Your Pet Is Always Safe!813-388-2921www.noahsarkpetgrooming.com26606 Magnolia Blvd.(Behind Marathon Gas Station on S.R. 66) $5.00 OFF FIRST GROOMING OR FREE TOOTHBRUSHINGWith this coupon.

JarvisPasco Extension Horticulturist and DirectorAfter azalea shrubs bloom, it is time to prune excess vegetation. While pruning, you may find that leaves are spotted or have a whitish cast to them. The culprit is likely the azalea lace bug. You may have noticed anytime theres a bug named for the plant, theres a good chance infestations are common. Check under the leaves for round black specks. This isnt the actual bug, but rather its excrement, or an egg-case which its momma cemented to the leaf with a molasseslike mixture. Specks are often easier to see than the small, nearly translucent insect. What kind of damage do lace bugs cause? Once hatched, the juveniles spend the day on the lower leaf surface systematically sucking the sap. In addition to azaleas, the Azalea lace bug also enjoys hanging on other shrubs and trees, including lantana, hawthorn, oaks and sycamore. Lace bugs are the key reason sycamores drop their leaves quite early in the fall. Vigilant gardeners may be able to keep lace bug populations down on smaller plants by shooting a strong jet of water from a garden hose on the succulent new leaves. Do this in early spring when young are hatching. While this may not be practical on tall sycamore trees, gardeners can maintain good control on smaller plants such as azalea. If the pests get ahead of you and stronger measures are needed, horticultural soaps or Neem Oil also works effectively. Apply at one-week intervals in the spring until control is achieved. For more information about azaleas and their pests, check out the University of Floridas Extension website at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_azalea. Also contact Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474 with gardening questions.

Under the direction of bandmaster Russell Schmidt, Kaitlin Greenough and Zachary Winters auditioned in September and were notified in November of their selection. One thousand freshman and sophomore students from across the state of Florida auditioned for these coveted concert positions. Greenough plays the Bb clarinet and was selected for the All-State Concert Band which was directed by Dr. Scott Tobias of the University of Central Florida. Winters plays percussion and was chosen to play in the AllState Concert Orchestra, which was directed by Mr. Chung Park of Idaho State University. The two sophomores performed at concerts on Jan. 14 at the Straz Performing Arts Center in Tampa. This yearly event was presented by the Florida Music Educators Association. Both Greenough and Winters were extremely honored to represent Zephyrhills High at the state level. This was an incredible learning experience for them as young musicians. In addition to All-State, both Greenough and Winters were selected for Pascos AllCounty Band which performed its concert on Jan. 28 at the Wesley Chapel Center for the Performing Arts. Also, on Feb. 11 both were awarded superior ratings on solos they played for judges at Fivay High.

The program, called Points of Care, can be used by any Pasco resident regardless of age, income or pre-existing condition, according to case management coordinator Edward Folkes, Jr. Anyone can save up to 50 percent on their prescriptions at major pharmacies, Folkes said. Its a great thing for anyone who needs prescriptions because it doesnt cost anything and its easy to do. To take advantage of the program, county residents only have to visit www.PascoRxCard.com. From there they can print a Points of Care card, which instantly allows them to save at more than 45,000 participating pharmacies nationwide. People can also get the cards from Pascos libraries. Some of the major pharmacies accepting the program include CVS, Kmart, Publix, Sams Club, Sweetbay, Target, Walgreens, WalMart and Winn-Dixie. Residents can also save on diabetes supplies, durable medical equipment and hearing aids. Folkes said the program is designed to assist residents who do not have prescription drug coverage through their insurance or for savings on medications that are not covered through insurance. Pasco launched the program last February. Since then it has saved county residents more than $110,000. Folkes also pointed out the program drove business to local pharmacies while helping families pay for medications. Points of Care is run by Universal RX, a Virginia-based business. It will administer the program for at least one year. For more information on the program, including a list of medications and other supplies covered, call (727) 847-2411.Pasco continues prescription savings program Upcoming library eventsHUGH EMBRY LIBRARY NEW RIVER LIBRARY

The hall was full for much entertainment in the form of humor, song and theatrics. The large cast came from all three Sleepy Hollow parks. The show was directed by Marilyn Finch. Brother and sister duet Sonny Farnham and Jo Shaw performed their fine country singing. Two of the musicians were caught fiddling around too! Each of the three Sleepy Hollow parks has produced a show this spring. Mobile Estates, the Spring Fling and Park 2 produced the entertainer Rich Wilson for music from the 1950s through the 70s for a fun time. Sleepy Hollow Park 1, under the direction of resident Pat Aiken, produced Spring Concoctions, with all kinds of variety entertainment. More than 170 people attended the festivities. The cast that participated in the annual Spring Fling at Sleepy Hollow comprised of residents from all three Sleepy Hollow parks.

PIANIN, AU.Dbtnft Doctor of Audiology CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800THE LAKER/PARK NEWS March 21, 2012 13 current situation in Zephyrhills. A trip up Wire Road youre in the city on both sides. So, the garbage truck is picking up garbage on both sides of the street. And then when you cross past the high school on the left hand side youre in, on the right hand side, youre out. And then, all of sudden, both sides youre out. Its real hard to tell your staff: Pick up three houses on the left; dont pick up any houses for the next two houses; then pick up three on the right, two on the right, both sides again and then dont pick up anything, Drumm said. The situation the city is in arose over time, Drumm said. As Zephyrhills grew, it had branches in all directions, much like the arms of an octopus, he said. That happened because the city historically allowed property owners to decide whether they wanted to be within the city limits or not. As a result, in some places, the citys boundaries look like Swiss cheese. The state Legislature recognized the service delivery problems that these situations cause and outlawed the creation of new enclaves, Drumm said. The city of Zephyrhills is eyeing annexation to address existing conditions. There are three ways to annex under state law, Drumm explained. Under the first option, property owners can voluntarily come into the city. The second way is by referendum and the third way is through an agreement between the city and county, Drumm said. The first option is simple. An individual signs a proper document and the property is annexed into the city. Under the second option, the city establishes a district that meets the criteria of annexation and voters within that district vote to determine whether annexation occurs. Under the third option, the city can annex properties within an enclave, but only with the permission of the County Commission, Drumm said. State law says annexations can only include areas that are contiguous and somewhat compact, Drumm said. The city is considering all three options, he said. Properties that are annexed into the city would pay more in property taxes, but also would receive city services, Drumm said. Drumm doesnt expect annexations to occur or service delivery problems to be resolved overnight. Its almost like constructing a puzzle, he said. Its going to take a few years to close some of these gaps. Were doing an outreach to these areas to try to bring them into the city and actually close these gaps, he said. Initially, we would try to close them off piece-by-piece. ANNEX, from page 1 Jim Drumm, the city manager of Zephryhills, thinks annexations could reduce confusion over the delivery of government services. (Photo by B.C. Manion)

Our coffee social had several announcements in the form of birthdays and anniversaries: Ray and Elaine Mercer celebrated 66 years of wedded bliss, while Ed Goodreault had a milestone birthday of 80. March has several of our residents celebrating birthdays: Owen Garrow on March 6, Clara Moyer on March 14, Bill Kiger on March 18, Lois Sprague on March 24 and Jerry Wyfels on March 30. Happy Birthday to all.The sick list has several people on it and prayers were said for Hannah Riser, Karen Nagle, Armand Drapeau, and Ron Falsey. The line dancing hosted by Loretta Green is a great way to get your exercise, plus it gives good balance and quite a few ladies are enjoying this activity along with the Yoga classes chaired by Ann Casey. Come join these groups. The Craft Class chaired by Ginnie Zepp had a beautiful display of its creations. The work ranged from pine needle bowls to quilted table accessories to painted artwork and very lovely folded paper cutwork. If any one were to have to judge for a first-place prize, it would be very hard to choose. John Mauk is back doing any revisions to the telephone directory. He and Gary Gibson have diligently scoured the business places for advertisers that would help sponsor the directory plus supply a first hand promotion of good businesses you can depend on should the need arise. Scott Pearce, visiting son of Nan Pearce, related how concerned he was when his parents decided to settle into Gem Estates 30 years ago, but now realizes what an extended family Nan has here after all this time. Friendships and companionships abound once you live in a mobile home park such as ours. Other visitors include Brea Babbitt and her friend Amanda Carey enjoying a break with Keith and Carolyn Babbitt. John Trundy introduced his friend, Edith Shepard from Searsmont, Maine. Welcome to our new neighbors Carol and Dan Farnsworth, who moved into the house vacated by Dick and Gloria Holbin on Sterling Drive. Also Nancy and Don Scott on Rockford Avenue. We hope to see all the newcomers helping and participating in our many activities. This years celebration for our friends and neighbors who celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary during 2011 was a great success. Three couples were honored: Keith and Carolyn Babbitt, Frances and Tom Galvani, and Walt and Rita Kissel. Walt and Rita were unable to attend the luncheon due to medical issues, but they were in everyones thoughts. Dea-Ann Burgess, who chaired the event, said it could not have been done without the help of many willing hands and was thankful to all the ladies who worked so hard to make this special event a success. Coming up on March 22 beginning at 5 p.m., we will be honoring those of our residents who have reached their 90th birthday. A Happy Birthday picnic will be held in Gem Estates park under the trees. There will be a $6 donation. All those 90 or older are free. See Loretta Green for tickets. We certainly want to thank Tom Geenwood for his beautification efforts to our park. His talent has given us a new Gem Estates sign, the faux brick on the marquee and the clubhouse, the valances over the interior windows and more. What a terrific improvement. Thanks Tom. Our bus trips are about over for this season. One last trip to Immokalee resulted in a full busload with lots of winners. The Early Bird Dinner Theater was a smash hit and we are planning on another great season of trips when you get back in the fall. Hope everyone has a fantastic summer and a safe journey north and back again in the fall.Spring in the air, home on the brain NOTICE OF FINAL AGENCY ACTION BY THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICTNotice is given that the Districts Final Agency Action is approval of a Petition for Formal Determination of Wetlands and Other Surface Waters to serve commercial activities on 17.44 acres known as W esley Chapel Medical Center The project is located in Pasco County, Section(s) S30 Township T26S South, Range R20E East.

By Sandra AbelRainbow VillageOn our chicken bake day at Rainbow Village you could smell this wonderful odor of chicken being grilled all through the park. Residents couldnt wait for the time to eat this wonderful meal that consisted of half a chicken, baked potato, corn, slaw, roll and dessert. Lots of work goes into preparing this meal and we thank Lewis, Judy May and Art and Alice Sikkenga and their great committee for a wonderful meal!The quilting ladies of Rainbow Village showed off their projects that they did this season. Quilts, lap quilts, aprons, tie purses, shoulder bags, place mats, vests, jackets, scarfs and many other items were shown. The quilters helped Sandy Abel with a project for her church in Pennsylvania that their teenagers will be going on a mission trip next July to upper New York and they wanted to give each residents a lap quilt. We completed 21 lap quilts for the project. Thanks to Nancy Pollock, Sue Larkin and Edie Dayton who come up with the ideas for our quilting ladies. Well done ladies!The theme of Rainbow Villages birthday party is a Western Hoe down. The birthday party started off with a parade of residents decorating their bikes to look like horses and the riders dressed in country attire. Motorcycles decorated and even dogs all dressed up for the party. They paraded all around the park. Lunchtime at the chuck wagon consisted of hamburgers in sauce, baked beans, slaw, chips, ice cream and cake. Billy Mann and the Old Country Band entertained and residents danced. It was a great birthday party! Thanks to Carol Halloway and her great committee! Joe and Jan Edwards Git-Fiddle Review Show was a big hit at Rainbow Village recently. Joe plays a mean guitar and Jan has a beautiful voice singing all styles of music from Joe playing Orange Blossom special to Jan singing some of Patsy Clines songs. Joe and Jan are residents of Rainbow Village, and we love them as our neighbors! Joe was a musician for 48 years on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Great show! At our Sunday night ice cream, our Rainbow Village performers put on a skit entitled The Great Train Robbery. It was so funny! Thanks for an enjoyable night!!! The following Sunday night ice cream we had the talented David Teague playing his guitar and banjo. Very talented gentleman!!!! We always enjoy his music. The committee led by Fred Were and Dick Rose had a great time planning and building our float for the Founders Day parade. It was a great team effort to put the theme Unsung Heroes of Zephyrhills together to create this float. We picked the early 1920s period of Zephyrhills. We built a train engine that had smoke come out of the smoke stack and a train car that carried three unsung heroes: Aunt Dora Marsh, Captain Jeffries and Helen Miller. We also had Senator Pasco campaigning from the rear of the train. Our present unsung hero was Dave Emory, who owns the bike shop in Zephyrhills, who helped to bring the proposed bike trail to Zephyrhills and also helps the youngsters by holding workshops. He is a very generous man. We had the honors of receiving the trophy for Best of the Parade. It was a great day for Rainbow Village! After this week, things are slowing down at Rainbow Village. Some residents have already gone home. The season seems to have gone by so fast, just like life is going fast for us snowbirds! The Rainbow Village float won Best of the Parade during the Founders Day celebrations in Zephyrhills.

A misnomer, after seeing the 2012 show along with many past years. Once again the residents stepped up and shared their talents. Along with the singers, some played guitar or violin, others performed skits that had the hall rocking with laughter. During the show, Jim Hayes was presented with a plaque, recognizing his contribution as coordinator for the past 10 years. As he no longer has the work connected with the show, the audience welcomed him back as a performer. The NO-Talent show has been a yearlyevent for many years. The first show was called a Talent Show. Marilyn Schilling, recalling that first show, said, we had great difficulty getting anyone to perform. So she suggested they add NO to the title and we had no problem getting performers, she said. Bill and Brenda McLaughlin, along with Noreen Peters, coordinated the event this year. Along with the many who assisted in the background, the coordinators did a great job. Not only was the audience entertained, but many received a door prize. An evening to be remembered. Artie Shaw performs with Dr. Moody. Arties son, Jeff Shaw, was visiting and assisted his father. Impressive showing at NO talent nightB y Anne As tlesLeisure DaysDale Smith, representing Fair Haven Baptist Church of Zephyrhills recently visited the Leisure Days R.V. Park. He was presented with quilts, afghans and stocking caps for the homeless in the Zephyrhills area.Smith said different men from the church go out every couple of weeks and special holidays to visit some of the homeless in the area. We provide meals, clothing and blankets, he said. On his last visit Mr. Smith said we provided for more than 30 people, including children. The items he received were created by the Busy Hands of Leisure Days, which includes most of the residents in the park. Since the group of women and men, was formed one year ago, more than 350 items have been donated to local groups, including Gulfside Hospice, the Pregnancy Centre and residents of area nursing homes. Although many of the workers will be returning to their homes for the summer, the work will continue, so there will be donations ready for Christmas. Busy hands, busy donatingJoanne Vandenhoek and Margaret Aussant admire the first veterans quilt the Leisure Days Busy Hands made for Gulfside Hospice in Zephyrhills. Along with the quilt, others have been busy making doves for Hospice as their contribution.

It was a hectic year or so of getting the completion done of our new community center and filing of proper papers. They did a wonderful job and all our thanks go out to them. On this particular day, Feb. 16, three new members were voted in. The election took place before our board meeting. Most of the residents attended this meeting to welcome in the new board members who were elected. The community center was packed with residents recertifying our eligibility of a 55plus community, plus the voting of new members. It was a busy place but the election went well and the final count was in by the end of the meeting. Each person who volunteered had their particular job to do and it was done in good fashion. Earlier in the day the men decided to go and try a new restaurant called, Wild, Wild, Wings located in Zephyrhills at noon. They say that this restaurant is the equivalent of Hooters that is located in Lakeland. This was hosted by Jon Lamphere and the men found another place to have a nice frosty beer and forget their troubles and/or problems. Several of the guys went and had a fun time. Also, during the same day, the Ladies of Grand Horizon had a swell time at the Olive Garden in Lakeland. Since the Olive Garden is relatively close to a mall, some women combined this trip with shopping. After all, a good meal, to some, is not complete without a little bit of shopping. The hostess of this outing was Pidge Elliott and she did a fine job. The previous day, Feb. 15, found a writing group at Nancy Martins house to talk about some ideas that they may have to write about. Several years ago a writing group was formed but fell through but, now that we have so many more new residents, we thought we would try it once again. We did start the group the previous month with three people. It was such fun that it grew to four people the following month and one wanting to join at a later date. So we do hope that our little writing group catches on with more and more people coming each month. Right now it is only held once a month, but that may change if more and more people are interested. The purpose of this group is to voice our thoughts to each other. A little support can go a long way. This is a time to write about events that have happened but never have been written about. So, come and join the fun of seeing the story that you talked about come to life right before your very eyes. Because this is a new community center, we would like to have a nice stage and dance floor. So, while all our activities are going on, some of our residents and neighbors are building a new dance floor from scratch. We can see that a lot of hard work is going into this project but, then again, that is exactly how our neighbors respond when something is needed. They do what they can and they are doing a top-notch job. Thanks to all the volunteers who are undertaking this project. A yard and bake sale will be held at Grand Horizons on March 24 and, as mentioned previously, a dance floor will be on sale in addition to a decorative brass tagre. It is a lovely stand with open shelves for displaying ornaments. Also, I was told that a raffle is being held for a quilt and also hand-made crocheted items. So it should be interesting. Mark this date down as it is a date that you do not want to forget. Guaranteed, there will be something for everyone. We had a potluck social hour on Feb. 24 and there was a great turnout. The cooks at Grand Horizon outdid themselves and there was a large variety of food. There were approximately 70 people and, it seemed to me, that everyone had a fun night. This event was hosted by Bill and Pidge Elliott and Ron and Patty Molnar. Our thanks go out to them. We had our second ice cream social on Feb. 26 and approximately 93 people attended this social. It was hosted by Jerry and Chris Buckley and they had several people to help them out. The helpers included Andy and Margaret Castonguay, along with Linda and Dave Tutin and Barbara Delaney. Every topping that was available was on a table on the side and in the front. In addition, Barbara Delaney was there putting cherries on the ice cream. Each person had their own specific job and thereby everything ran smoothly. All the people that attended this function had a great time and are looking forward to the next one.

By Rosalie DoughtyOaks Royal ParkArmand Poirier, a Maine native, was recently awarded the highest honor France can bestow for his courageous actions during WWII. While serving in the U.S. Army Medical Corp, he fought in five major battles, which include the Battle of the Bulge in France, Belgium and Luxemburg. He also was in the Battle of Nuremburg, the crossing of the Rhine River and was among the first Allied forces to liberate the concentration camps at Dachau and Auschwitz. He suffered as a P.O.W. and was M.I.A. for 55 days before his discharge from the military. The medal he was awarded was created by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802. No one can honestly say that we, as Americans, dont have our own heroes for our young people to admire and paten their lives after.

The Laker Park News Staff ReportPatientsChoice.org has once again recognized Dr. Ahad Mahootchi and Dr. Shawn Chhabra as two of Americas Most Compassionate Doctors for 2011. The cataract surgeons and eye specialists also won in 2009 and 2010. The recognition is given to less than 3 percent of Americas physicians and is based on patient reviews and voting. PatientsChoice.org is a website that compiles patient reviews of doctors. According to the website, more than 200,000 patients across the country provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors. They rate various components such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff, and overall opinions. Over the course of 2011, these doctor reviews have totaled hundreds of thousands patient opinions. While physicians generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews across the board. Only those who have received rave reviews with near perfect scores by their patients are awarded this honor. Also according to the website, of the nations 830,000 active physicians, only 5 percent were accorded this honor by their patients in 2011. Only doctors who have received this award are featured on PatientsChoice.org.Drs. Mahootchi and Chhabra are both ophthalmologists at The Eye Clinic of Florida in Zephyrhills. It is the only local practice that performs all their cataract surgeries in town. For more information, call (813) 779-3338, or visit online at www.SeeBetterFlorida.com.
