TheLAKER FREE TheLAKER EAST PASCO EDITION AUGUST 21, 2013By B.C. Manion Patrons of New River Branch Library can breathe a sigh of relief. The Pasco County Commission voted unanimously last week to keep open both the Wesley Chapel library as well as the Centennial Park Branch Library in Holiday. The decision came after library supporters reminded commissioners how important those libraries are in the communities where they operate. One woman described the New River Branch as having the welcoming feel conveyed on the television sitcom “Cheers,” saying it’s a place “where everyone knows your name.” She told commissioners that the library is a community gathering spot, serving everyone “from the tiniest child up through seniors.” Diane Halterman, a former county library system branch manager from Zephyrhills, also weighed in on the topic. Old building, new look An iconic landmark in Dade City will get a fresh look thanks to funding approved by the Pasco County Commission. Commissioners approved a $27,553 bid by Specialized Property Services Inc. for painting and recoating the dome on the historic courthouse in Dade City. They were one of six companies that submitted bids for the project. The courthouse was built in 1909, and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2006. It is located on Meridian Avenue in the heart of Dade City’s downtown.

By Michael Hinman Pasco Regional Medical Center is changing its name to Bayfront Health Dade City, despite its recent sale. The agreement by the hospital’s owner, Health Management Associates Inc., to a $7.6 billion buyout from Community Health Systems Inc. won’t affect the name change, Kathryn Gillette, market president and chief executive officer of Bayfront Health, told The Laker/Lutz News in a statement. “We continue to move forward with the integration of the Bayfront Health system as planned, which will benefit all of our communities,” Gillette said. “It is not expected that the operations of any of the Bayfront Health hospitals will be affected in any way for the foreseeable future.” That mirrors what Community Health spokeswoman Tomi Galin said immediately after the sale last month, adding that the acquisition itself won’t be completed for “several months” anyway. However, once Community Health does take over, there is always a possibility that things could change. “If anything, should the combination of our parent company with CHS occur, it will be very beneficial to all the hospitals involved in the greater Gulf Coast community,” Gillette said. “Together, we believe we will be part of an even stronger company, which certainly benefits our communities, our physicians, our associates, and most importantly, our patients.”The total acquisition includes 23 hospitals in Florida, including the Dade City facility, which is located at 13100 Fort King Road. In the end, that will give Community Health 25 hospitals in the state and 206 nationwide.No timetable has been set on when the name of the Dade City hospital will officially change, but it is expected to happen before the end of the year. The 120-bed acute care hospital became a part of Health Management Associates in 2000 as part of a $17 million acquisition. Signs have changed rather frequently in front of the hospital in Dade City over the decades, and will soon transition yet again to Bayfront Health Dade City despite the hospital’s recently announced purchase by Community Health Systems.

Yet, the hundreds of teachers who lead classrooms in the district regularly find themselves without much-needed supplies as simple as notebooks and pencils. And that’s where United Way of Pasco County steps in. The charity and service group collected more than 10,000 school supply items recently as part of its annual Stuff the Bus for Teachers campaign. The effort is designed to bring the community together, stocking classrooms and giving a helping hand to the men and women responsible for ensuring the education of our young future leaders. “Teachers spend between $400 and $1,000 out of their own pocket to supply their classrooms,” said Stefanie Pontlitz, director of development for the local United Way office. “After hearing that, we really wanted to try and assess their needs, because it not only helps the teachers, it helps the students, and it helps learning. And that helps keep the focus on the classroom.” This year, United Way and Pasco County Schools will reach out to 770 teachers in 80 of its schools to help supply their classrooms with essential items. They’ll use supplies collected from 14 buses parked at Publix and Walmart locations throughout the county during Florida’s annual tax-free holiday. With school ready to start on Aug. 19, the district is looking for everything they can to help. That includes $1,000 thanks to a small church congregation in Trinity that took a bit of a unique approach. “If you see someone in need, and it’s within your power to help them, let’s do so,” said Pastor Clayton Bell, who leads Trinity New Life Church at Trinity Elementary School on Duck Slough Boulevard. For the second year in a row, Bell interrupted his regular Sunday morning sermon at the young church to convince his flock to get in their cars and head straight to the nearby Walmart. There, the church shopped together, leaving with several carts full of supplies. “Pasco is a very heavy-education county, and we have a lot of teachers and homeschool moms in our church,” Bell said. “Teachers have to do so much out of their own pocket, and we wanted to do something that would help them.” The effort also got support from local Rotary clubs, as well as teachers themselves, volunteering at drop-off points around the county. Moving company Two Men and a Truck will deliver supplies to west Pasco schools, while the United Way will take care of the eastern side of the county. Among the volunteers was Pasco Schools superintendent Kurt Browning, who not only donated his own box of supplies, but also worked tirelessly to help organize everything as they were brought into the Pine View Middle School gymnasium. “It’s a great partnership, and the United Way has been a catalyst to really lead the effort,” Browning said. “But my thanks goes out to all the people that contributed their hardearned dollars to make sure our kids have what they need to start school here.” This year slightly less than $40,000 in donations came in, topping last year’s total of around $35,000, and the increase was needed since 80 more names were added to the teacher list. “This is our county’s future,” Pontlitz said. “We want to support the future, and we want to support our teachers.” Cindy Greyard, right, a teacher at Fox Hollow Elementary School, helps unload boxes of school supplies at Pine View Middle School last week. It was part of the annual Stuff the Bus for Teachers event organized by Pasco County Schools and the United Way of Pasco County.

Manion Pasco County and Saddlebrook Resort Tampa are joining forces to host the 2014 Golfweek Senior Amateur Championship and the Golfweek Junior Tour Championship early next year. The Pasco County Commission voted unanimously to approve a $50,000 sponsorship in a joint venture with Saddlebrook and Golfweek Magazine. “I think this is a phenomenal opportunity,” Commissioner Jack Mariano said. If the county can get people to look at Pasco, especially at the right time of year, it could open new possibilities, not only for Saddlebrook, but for other quality area golf courses, Mariano said. “The promotional value to Pasco County, highlighting some strong assets that we have, is tremendous,” he said. “Maybe this will be the beginning of a lot of opportunities,” said Commission Chairman Ted Schrader, noting the county’s success with the national lacrosse tournament that takes place annually in Wesley Chapel. This partnership is the tourism office’s first foray into promoting Pasco’s golf amenities, said Eric Keaton of the Office of Tourism Development. Revenues from bed taxes pale in comparison to the promotional value of the venture. Besides Saddlebrook, the county has 20plus courses, Keaton said. “Golfweek and Saddlebrook are going to work together to not only promote their destination, but also a number of other golf destinations in the county,” Keaton said. Keaton told commissioners the tourism office has the money to cover the expense because its revenues exceeded expectations, and costs were kept below budget. The value of the partnership “exceeds the purchase price two-fold,” agenda documents supporting the proposal noted, adding that Golfweek is the “Cadillac of golfing advertising platforms.” The senior tournament is scheduled for Jan. 15-17 and is expected to involve 80 players on one golf course. The event should generate 400-plus room nights, as golfers arrive the day before the three-day tournament, and depart the day after the event ends. Spouses are expected to accompany the senior golfers, potentially bringing in more revenue to the county. The junior tournament, which will be in January or February, is expected to draw 40 to 60 golfers on a single course and will involve two days of golf, the agenda materials read. The event is projected to create 240-plus room nights with golfers accompanied by their families.Economic boom? County commits $50,000 to Saddlebrook golf Pasco County’s tourism council is using golf courses like the one at Saddlebrook Resort to help highlight the sporting opportunities available to tourists. (File photos) More golf tournaments mean more room nights in places like Saddlebrook Resort, which has a chance to show off elegant swimming pools and other amenities. us on facebook

G G Maximum strength analgesic creme for temporary relief from: € Joint and Muscle soreness € Arthritis € Back aches THG-12902 By Michael Hinman Dominic Mukwaya arrived in Pasco County ready to learn. When he left his village in Uganda more than a month ago, more than 30 members of his extended family joined him at the airport — nearly all of them watching a plane take off for the very first time in their lives. Not only was it his first plane ride and his first trip to America, but it was also the first time Mukwaya has ever left the Kyotera region of his country, where running water was just introduced last spring, and electricity is still a future goal. Despite that, Mukwaya has schooled more than 650 orphans whose families were ravaged by the HIV epidemic there. He has pushed for more adult education as well — especially for women, who traditionally did not go to school when they were younger. “Some of the people in my district went to school and were not doing good, and others could not afford to pay for the school fees,” Mukwaya said. “We started a sustainability project where, in the long term, we can help those who might not be able to learn otherwise.” Mukwaya returned home recently after his two-week trip to Land O’ Lakes, participating in the annual International Leadership Fellows Institute from the National Educator Program. That program, based in Denver, chose the Pasco County Schools out of more than a dozen national applicants to host this institute. It’s designed to empower teachers to become strong leaders, and give students equal access to success. The seminar itself, which also included 20 hand-picked Pasco educators, lasted two weeks. It’s part of the overall institute program designed to operate for the next year, connecting participants not only with faceto-face visits, but also technologically through online communication services like Skype. It’s meant to be a give and take, where these administrators learn from each other, and take all of it back to incorporate into their own classrooms.“What we have found so far that whether you’re teaching in a major metropolitan area or the jungle by the lake, it’s remarkable the similarities on how schools and classrooms operate,” said Mark Thompson, executive director for NEP, “We found much more in common than we thought.”The recent conference in Land O’ Lakes was led by Diane Varano, principal of the Cultural Academy for the Arts and Sciences in Brooklyn. She makes the trip each year to help form new bonds among the education leaders, giving them tools to reinvigorate classrooms. It’s a much-needed wakeup call for many teachers, who in recent years have complained about being forced to teach to state-mandated tests like the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Instead, the learning process must be more experiential, said Mark Xing, who is the director of teaching affairs for a 2,000-student school system in Shenzhen, China. Located just north of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is a city of more than 10 million people that was an early adopter of capitalism in the traditionally communist country. Because of that, the school there has been working to include both Chinese and American curriculums. “In China, a lot of parents would like to send their children to study in the United States,” Xing said. “They want their children to know more about American culture, and we actually started this program to meet the parents’ needs.” There was some concern that requiring both Chinese and American studies for elementary school-aged students might be too much. Instead, Xing has found his students embracing both equally, and that will give them an edge as technology continues to shrink the world and China plays an ever-expanding role in world economics. Mukwaya’s curriculum also is experience-based, but not quite the same way. In his region, English is being taught as a third language — behind the local Luganda and the regional Swahili. But while math and reading are essential in the learning process for both children and adults, so are vocational skills that will help not only make money for his students, but save money as well.“We started with writing and reading, and now they are going up to do more functional things like how to weave mats from palm leaves and make bags from banana fibers,” Mukwaya said. “We’re also teaching many of our women how they can save money, and how they can be sustainable financially.”Both Mukwaya and Xing will return to Land O’ Lakes next year to share progress on changes they’ve instituted because of the program and report back on how well they have worked, with the goal of helping the district’s program to grow and evolve. “This isn’t just about someone coming here and learning things. We are learning a great deal from them,” Thompson said. “We can teach them some of our best practices when it comes to education, but they are not just learning ours, they are teaching us theirs, too, and that’s the kind of dialogue we want to have.” Mark Xing, center, of the Nanshan School District in Shenzhen, China, works with Susan Sanger-Miller from Connerton Elementary, left, and Alissa Lamorand from Anclote Elementary, on some administrative exercises at the International Leadership Fellows Institute in Land O’ Lakes recently.

There were 43 residents who showed up for this event, and they not only enjoyed an ice cream sundae with all the toppings that they wanted, but enjoyed cooling off with a nice refreshing pick-me-up. It was rainy most of the day, and despite this, everyone had a good time. The toppings included various fruit toppings, caramel, plus fruits and nuts. Like they say, ice cream in hot, humid weather sure hits the spot. From what I heard from Sam Sage, there was a lunch connoisseurs Aug. 9 at the Red Lobster with Vic and Lynn Dyson as the hosts. As always, this proved to be an interesting time when neighbors meet for a lunch and carry on conversations. I spoke to Lynn and she mentioned that 21 people were in attendance. It was sunny when they left Grand Horizons, but raining as they had their lunch. Then, by some miracle, as they left, it became sunny once again. The menu consisted of many entrees at reasonable prices and a specialty of a combination of soup, salad, plus an entre and a dessert. They also got a separate room where they could converse with each other. All in all, Lynn feels that everyone had a good time. While these activities and more were going on at Grand Horizon in Florida, my husband, Marty, and I, took a day trip to New London, Conn., on July 27. It was a beautiful day and there was less humidity down by the shore than back at our home in Hartford. There was a delightful breeze and it was a wonderful day for a boat ride. We took the Three Sisters lighthouse tour, which consisted of five people, so we almost got individual attention. The first lighthouse that we took a boat out to was called the New London Harbor Light. This is the oldest and tallest lighthouse in Connecticut. It is the fourth oldest in America. The original tower was built in 1760 and built of stone. It was topped with a woodframe lantern room that housed a fixed light fed by three lamps. The second lighthouse that we saw from the boat was called the New London Ledge Light. It was shaped like a house structure and built in 1909. It was built as a tribute to coastguardsmen and lighthouse keepers. On our boat trip, we were told a little story that I thought was quite interesting. It was said that the lighthouse is haunted. It seemed that one day the lighthouse keeper, Ernie, took a boat ride into town for supplies, and when he came back, he found that his wife left with the captain of the Block Island ferryboat that came to the island every so often. Ernie was said to have jumped or fell from the roof of the lighthouse. Now, when boats mysteriously set adrift, decks become swabbed and we find doors opening and closing by themselves, or the foghorn sounding with no fog in sight, they believe that it is the ghost of Ernie. The lighthouse was eventually automated in 1987. The lighthouse is currently leased to the New London Ledge Lighthouse Foundation, which has been restoring the interior and hopes to eventually open it as a combination museum/bed and breakfast. The third and final lighthouse was the Avery Point Lighthouse. This is the newest lighthouse in Connecticut. It has a green light to distinguish it from the other lighthouses. It is presently an extension of the campus of the University of Connecticut. All these lighthouses help guide our ships at sea by having a different color that is shown from the light. After the boat ride, that proved to be very interesting, we attended a street fair that was going on at the New London pier. Here we saw various vendors that had booths with different crafts. We also saw paintings and a Fresnel lens that were on display for viewing. Along with this, we saw many interesting artifacts in the Custom House Maritime Museum that was near the street fair. All in all, it was a relaxing day at the shore with magnificent weather.Lights showing the way at Grand Horizons and beyond Avery Point is the newest lighthouse in Connecticut, first built in 1943. It uses a green light to distinguish it from other lighthouses. It is believed a ghost named Ernie haunts New London Ledge, a lighthouse that was built in 1909 near Groton, Conn. (Photos by Marty Rubenstein) New London Harbor is Connecticut’s oldest lighthouse, and is the seventh oldest in the United States. First built in 1760, it’s the tallest lighthouse in Connecticut.


“When I moved here in 1985, I was appalled that there were no public libraries on the east side of the county, except for the very, very tiny one in Zephyrhills,” she said. “And Dade City’s library was also very small. I saw the bond issue coming to the county and was thrilled to see libraries go up.” Closing the New River branch would pose a hardship for many young families in Zephyrhills, who work in the service industry and can’t afford to have computers in their homes, Halterman said. Gail Stout, chairwoman of the county’s library advisory board, told commissioners the per capita spending on libraries is $12.07 in Pasco County, compared to the state average of $25 per capita. “You certainly are getting a huge bang for your buck in this portion of your budget,” Stout said. Bob Robertson, also of Zephyrhills, joined with other speakers in describing New River as being a central part of the community’s fabric. “The activities that go on there well exceed the books on the racks,” Robertson said. “I think it would be a very sad thing, if we were to close that library.” Nancy Fredericks, administrator for Pasco County libraries, said closing the two libraries would cause more than 18 layoffs and yield about $776,875 in savings. It quickly became clear that commissioners had no interest in closing the libraries. Even Schrader said he raised the issue because he wanted to be sure the county explored all of its options. Commissioner Jack Mariano adamantly opposed any library closings. “I just would love to see this conversation stop right now,” he said, urging commissioners to send a clear message that all county libraries will remain open. “I think the libraries are very important for the county. Children have to take online courses. If they don’t have a computer at home, where are they going to go?” Mariano said.Closing libraries would be a step in the wrong direction, he added. “I just think we’re really hurting quality of life. There are better ways to go,” Mariano said. Commissioners Pat Mulieri, Kathryn Starkey and Henry Wilson made it clear they were against the idea. “We all have to decide what kind of community we want to live in,” Starkey said. “Having a quality place takes some investment. This is, to me, a real turning point in Pasco County.” Despite that sentiment, Schrader countered that the commissioners are still going to need to find places to save money, or residents will get bigger tax bills in the mail later. “In less than a month, on Sept. 10, we have the first public hearing,” he said. “Staff needs some direction from this board where you’re going to cut and where you’re going to raise taxes.” Commissioners have been hearing plenty from people who don’t want a tax hike. But Mulieri asked how well those louder voices are being represented. “How many people did you hear from?” she said. “Twenty-five? Thirty? Fifty? There’s 478,000 people in Pasco County. Most people like the idea that we have a fee for services. But they also want their library.” Starkey and Mariano noted that quality of life has an impact on the county’s economic prospects. “I’ve heard from a lot of people who don’t want any raise in the taxes. I’ve heard from a lot more that say they want a quality place to live,” Starkey said. “We can’t attract businesses here, when they drive by shuttered parks, shuttered libraries, roads full of potholes, snipe signs and garbage everywhere because we aren’t taking care of our backyard,” she said. By B.C. Manion In this age of tweets and texts, Gloria Dale sticks with an old-fashioned method of sending holiday cheer to veterans and troops. She writes each of her greeting cards by hand. The 78-year-old spends much of the year preparing about 1,575 cards to hand out at local nursing homes and to mail to active military personnel overseas.She’s a fixture at the Dunkin’ Donuts on SR 54 in Land O’ Lakes — where she plants herself at her favorite corner table on Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.She sips coffee as she jots out cards. Sometimes she’ll indulge in a bagel or some oatmeal. When she’s not at the shop, she can be frequently found penning the cards at Winter Quarters Pasco RV Resort’s clubhouse, while watching NASCAR or her beloved Tampa Bay Rays. Dale does the holiday card project every year, on behalf of the Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club. She got involved about eight years ago, while helping other club members complete the task.“Well, some of them write so small you can’t read it,” Dale said. So, she thought to herself: “I’ll just take that little chore on myself.”She asked the group: “Can I take these cards home?” They told her that’d be fine. “So, I took those cards home on a Thursday, and the next Thursday I took them back, all done,” Dale said. Since then, the project has become Dale’s little baby. As soon as one holiday season is over, she’s out buying cards for the next one.“After Christmas, I go to the store. They’ll come down — 75 percent and 80 percent off,” said Dale, who pays for the cards herself.The woman’s club pays for the postage to send the cards overseas, said Rosie Heim, Gloria Dale works through the year, writing holiday greeting cards for area veterans and military troops overseas. (Photos by B.C. Manion) Gloria Dale pens a holiday card, while sitting at her usual table at Dunkin’ Donuts on SR 54 in Land O’ Lakes.Pasco woman gives greetings a personal touchclub president. Heim said the club is lucky to have someone with Dale’s commitment. “I’m loving that she does it. She gives a personal touch from the club, which we like,” Heim said. “We want people to know that we care. She has beautiful writing.” Signing the cards is simple, Dale said. “I could get a stamp that says ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Happy Holidays,’” Dale said, but she added, “That would look horrible.” Instead, she carefully signs each card, places it in an envelope and then adorns the envelope with holiday stickers. “This is what it looks like when it’s finished,” Dale said, holding a card that she’s completed. “It doesn’t look commercial.” Dale says she enjoys the project. It’s a way she can honor people who have put their lives on the line for the nation. “My dad was in the service,” she said. “I had an uncle who was in the service who got killed. I had brothers-in-law and my husband. They all served. “My (late) husband (Harry), about the last thing he said to me was, if there’s anything to do to help a veteran, help them. So, I try my best.” Not everyone who gets a card always knows they get it, especially in nursing homes where patients may not always be aware of what’s going on around them. “But the family will know that they have a card, that we’re thinking of them,” Dale said.The greetings may also bring a bit of cheer to troops overseas at the holidays, she said.“I enjoy doing the cards. I can sit and write all day long,” Dale said. “It gives me something to do. It keeps my fingers limber.” Anyone with new holiday cards they would like to contribute or who would like to help cover postage costs can reach Dale at (813) 215-1045.LIBRARY, from page 1 a battle between Seminole Indians and Dade City settlers in 1858. “This is something that the whole family can come to, without costing a lot,” said Jim Dennison, the events chair for the Pioneer Florida museum, which is hosting the event. “We have something for everyone, even games for the kids that they don’t really play much anymore.” That includes classic games like hopscotch, or even red rover. “There are so many other things for kids to do with computers and video games, some don’t even know that these other games exist,” Dennison said. “And it gets them outside.” The one-day festival runs until 4 p.m. on Saturday. Our Country Fixin’s concession stand will have an old-fashioned fish fry beginning at noon, while local band Barking Dogs hosts an old-time music jam. Enterprise Church, which worships on Enterprise Road not far from Duck Lake Canal Road, will feature one of their gospel groups. The festival provides a glimpse of what life was like in the 1800s, a time before anything required electricity — or even running water. Crafters will be on-hand to show their wares, and the Zephyrhills Future Farmers of America will offer a petting zoo. “We have some hardworking families here, and they deserve a day they can just relax,” Dennison said.PIONEER, from page 1 / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS August 21, 2013 9 If you go …The Pioneer Florida Museum & Village is at 15602 Pioneer Museum Road, Dade City.
