Details on page 11 A GOLFERS diet consists of lots of GREENS By M i chael H i nman mhinman@cnewspubs.com Another summer without the Hercules Aquatic Center is coming to a close, and yet the future of this once vibrant public swimming pool park is still dried up. Pasco County Schools, which owns the nearly 16 acres, wants to figure it out, and they’ve enlisted the Zephyrhills City Council to help them. But coming to a consensus may prove more difficult than either side realized. “We do have to be realistic,” Council President Lance Smith said during the council’s regular Aug. 26 meeting. “It’s a loser — financially — but it does provide a service that is needed. And the question is, at what cost do we feel that we can provide it?” Pasco County leased the property from the school district for nearly two decades, Gretal plays with Pasco County Animal Services division education coordinator Judy Tate Gregory at the shelter on Dogpatch Lane. Gretal is considered a smaller dog, and more likely to find a home than other dogs. Animal Services officials hope that by offering dogs for $1 (and cats for $5) in September, many of Gretal’s shelter neighbors will be able to find homes, too. (Photos by Michael Hinman)How much is that doggie in the window? $1By M i chael H i nman mhinman@cnewspubs.com The holding area for the more than 130 dogs residing at the Pasco County Animal Services shelter in Land O’ Lakes erupts with barking every time someone walks in. Cage after cage is filled with large dogs, some weighing as much as 90 pounds or more. And many of them have some sort of pit bull in them. “Sadly, 70 to 80 percent of the dogs we get are pit bulls,” said Judy Tate Gregory, education coordinator for the shelter. “Most people come in looking for smaller dogs, and they are just more coveted. The larger dogs? Not so much.” And even with a policy designed to save as much as 90 percent of the dogs and cats the shelter receives, there’s a good chance many dogs with names like Jazzy, Flo and Luthes, will never again get to see outside the shelter. That’s why the shelter is offering dog adoptions for just a buck through Sept. 28. Called the “Dollar Dog Days of Summer,” most of the dogs are available to good homes for a $1 adoption fee, plus a license fee of $10. Each dog has been examined by a veterinarian, implanted with a microchip, and spayed or neutered — work that normally costs around $400. The total $11 charge is much lower than the normal $70 adoption fee for a dog, and a program that should make it easier for loving families to take home a new friend. “Our goal is to save lives here,” Gregory said. “We like to find the best homes we can for them.” The shelter is typically only required to hold dogs and cats without identifying information for 72 hours, according to county ordinances. However, the shelter tends to hold on to animals longer, doing everything possible to find someone to adopt. But it’s not easy. “It’s hard to see all the animals in the shelter,” Gregory said. “It’s not a gloomy place here, and it is better than where a lot of them came from. But no matter what we do to make our shelter more comfortable, these animals really just want a forever By M i chael H i nman mhinman@cnewspubs.com As construction workers piled the cement blocks on top of each other, speculation grew around Zephyrhills on what exactly was being built on Eiland Boulevard. Located just outside of Silver Oaks east of Simon Road, ideas ranged from a high-end restaurant to a new church. But in reality, it’s the newest facility from Florida Medical Clinic, a 12,000-square-foot home for both a dialysis center from DaVita Healthcare Partners Inc., and offices for some of the clinic’s doctors. “Patients will absolutely love this location,” said Florida Medical Clinic chief executive officer Joe Delatorre. “We took it off the main road a bit, but it’s easy to get to, will have nice parking, and it’ll have a lot of room.” When the facility opens in November, it will replace a much smaller dialysis center at Florida Medical’s primary Zephyrhills campus on US 301 just north of CR 54. This new location is just a few miles away, and dialysis patients will now have a chance toFlorida Medical Clinic builds new dialysis center Construction continues on Florida Medical Clinic’s new dialysis center that it’s building on Eiland Boulevard with DaVita Healthcare Partners Inc.

They make friends, celebrate good plays and congratulate each other while parents watch the games and support their children. After the game, everyone leaves with a smile and a desire to take the field again the following Saturday. The only thing missing is the hard-core competition: There isn’t any. The score is an afterthought at best. Just getting a chance to play is what matters, because the athletes might be in a wheelchair, have autism, or have some other physical, psychological or neurological challenge that makes playing more difficult. But none of those challenges prevent them from playing in the Buddy Baseball League, which partners each athlete with a “buddy” who guides them through the game, offers encouragement and allows them to take part in an experience that would otherwise be unavailable to them. Now in its fifth year, Buddy Baseball plays its games on Saturdays, beginning in late September, at the Temple Terrace Recreation Complex, 6610 E. Whiteway Drive. But its players — boys and girls with special needs ages 10-22 — come from all over the Tampa Bay Region (some even as far away as Sarasota or Plant City), and the league provides helmets, bats and balls, as well as hat and T-shirt uniforms to all participants. Each player is also assigned at least one buddy and will get a feel for their role during a designated practice before each scheduled game. According to Russ Oberbroeckling, Buddy Baseball commissioner, the format allows disabled children to go from permanent spectators to instant athletes. “They really can’t play baseball on a regular team because their disability holds them back,” Oberbroeckling said. “Now they can play on a team and be successful at it because they have a buddy there to help.” The activity also allows them to make friends and enjoy the camaraderie of organized sports. Oberbroeckling also explained that the buddies, who are normally in the same age range as the participants, enjoy helping the players and being part of a special organization. But Buddy Baseball impacts people off the field as well: Parents get to cheer on their children and be part of a sports community that otherwise might not be available to them. “It’s very social for the parents,” Oberbroeckling said. “For an hour and a half, they can go out to a baseball game, sit in the stands, enjoy the game and they’re meeting other people with similar situations.” Amy Dean, a Lutz resident whose daughter plays Buddy Baseball, agrees that parents also benefit from the organization. “We’ve gotten to where we know each other now, because the same parents tend to be there,” Dean said. They give each other tips and advice, and enjoy the games together. But the biggest recipient is her daughter, April. The 20-year-old, who has hypotonic cerebral palsy, is starting her fifth season with Buddy Baseball (the league plays two seasons a year), and she’s gone from knowing nothing about the sport to practicing with her family between games. “She’s looked forward to it from day one. Just absolutely loves it,” Dean said. The social component is also important, as Dean wants her daughter to be comfortable interacting and making friends in an atmosphere that includes people without disabilities, such as the buddies. And April has had no problem making friends and enjoying herself at the games. “I’ve been having fun at Buddy Baseball,” she said. “The coaches and the helpers, they help us with the batting and the pitching. We have a lot of fun at the games.” While the Buddy Baseball League continues to grow in popularity (the league will have 90 to 100 players in two age divisions this season), it remains an expensive endeavor. A nominal fee for players only covers a small portion of the cost, and they offer a number of scholarships for families who might have financial difficulties. The league depends on outside sponsorships, donations and a charitable event to continue operating. That event is the third annual Buddy Run 5k and Fun Run, which will be Nov. 3 at Lake Park. Last year’s event featured approximately 260 runners and raised more than $10,000 for Buddy Baseball and Congregation Beth Am, a Reform Jewish congregation serving Lutz, New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Westchase and all surrounding areas. The event includes a competitive 5k Run at 8 a.m., a one-mile Fun Run at 9 a.m. and a Buddy Dash for runners with special needs only. The upcoming Buddy Baseball season runs from Sept. 28 through Nov. 9.For more information about Buddy Baseball or registration, visit www.buddybaseball.org, e-mail BuddyBaseball@verizon.net, or call (813) 416-5742.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 4, 2013 3 By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com More students are walking through the front doors of area schools as communities in Pasco County continue to grow. The 39 schools in east and central Pasco County added 1,000 students since this time last year, according to population numbers released by Pasco County Schools. On average, the student population growth in east and central Pasco would be equivalent to adding a classroom per school. The additional students bring the total public school population to 30,800 — a 3.4 percent increase.“We’re not exactly sure where they are coming from as we haven’t had a chance to analyze it just yet,” said Christopher Williams, director for planning services at Pasco County Schools. “There are certainly some new houses being built, but I’m not sure how much of that has impacted the schools.”The biggest student population jumps came in Wesley Chapel, where Watergrass and Wesley Chapel elementary schools added 382 students, many of them coming from Quail Hollow Elementary School, which is closed this year for renovations. Both schools already taught more than a combined total of 1,000 students, but this year are operating with 1,438 — a 36 percent jump. Also on the rise is Wesley Chapel High School, adding 206 students from this time last year, and increasing its student body by nearly 16 percent. Wiregrass Ranch High School was not far behind, adding 159 students to cross the 2,000 mark with an 8 percent jump. “The Wesley Chapel and (SR) 54 corridor is where we’re seeing the most growth,” Williams said, adding there are still serious overcrowding issues at schools like Seven Oaks Elementary, Long Middle and Wiregrass Ranch. And it will be that way, at least for the near future. “We don’t have much of a budget for new schools, other than having enough money to build a new elementary school, in the next five years,” he said. “In the meantime, we’re doing what we can to help these schools.” Samantha Touriello, an incoming fifth-grader at Connerton Elementary School, gets some reassurance from principal Aimee Boltze while her mother Jessica Cottrell looks on during the first day of school. Samantha was able to wipe away her tears, and make her way to her new classroom.

The volunteers, made up primarily of youth and their parents, recorded more than 2,500 volunteer hours, according to a letter from Feeding America. Those volunteers performed various tasks, including sorting food, stocking shelves, pulling food orders and cleaning. “While we cannot name and thank each participant individually for all your time and efforts, we do want to share our gratitude with you all, and remind you that you played a role in our ability to handle an annual amount of 4.8 million pounds of food historically through this small branch of Feeding America Tampa Bay,” the letter said. The organization also thanked all of the businesses and community members who helped plan food drives, or made individual contributions at the food bank. Feeding America was formed in 1979, and manages a nationwide network of 200 food banks and food rescue organizations. Feeding America supports 50,000 charities that involve food banks, emergency shelters, soup kitchens and more.

or advanced placement.” Pasco started its eSchool in 2009, and last year serviced 5,500 semester courses for 2,300 students. And that’s just for middle school and high school. The elementary eSchool has about 100 students — a smaller number because it requires not only the regular involvement of the student and teacher, but a parent as well. Although interest in virtual schools continues to grow each year, the charter operation offered by the Southwest Florida Virtual Charter Board was met with so much skepticism from the board when it was first introduced last spring that they denied the request. Southwest Florida Virtual appealed that decision to Florida’s Department of Education, prompting school board members to reconsider without risking a lengthy legal battle. An investigation concluded Southwest Florida Virtual hired only certified teachers in Seminole County, but concerns remain. “Student achievement, or the lack thereof, is something we are very worried about,” said Nancy Scowcroft, supervisor of charter schools for Pasco County. “Their school grades are not being posted on the Department of Education’s website, which means they are appealing. I don’t know what these scores look like, but apparently they are not where they want to be.” The county maintains oversight of charter schools to make sure they are meeting specific criteria. With bricks and mortar schools, it means just traveling to different parts of the county when needed. However, to see what’s happening with Florida Virtual Academy of Pasco County, as this new school will be called, it will require regular trips to Daytona Beach. “That means spending more money just to keep an eye on everything,” Scowcroft said. Jeff Kwitowski, a spokesman for Virginiabased K12 Inc., which calls itself the “vendor” for the charter school operations in Florida, points to the fact that the previous claims against the school were unsubstantiated. And even if there was an issue of teachers lacking certification for their particular subject matter, it’s not against the law. The state department of education reports more than 8,700 teachers in Florida’s schools are teaching courses outside their subject certification, Kwitowski said in a statement. He added that Seminole County, which made the complaint, admitted to having 100 teachers without proper certification in the 2011-12 school year alone. “K12 had only three teachers whose certifications were ‘out-of-field,’ and they were quickly corrected,” Kwitowski said. Some of the demand for virtual schools will now be shared by both Florida Virtual Academy and Pasco eSchool. And that alone could very well create a strong future for this newer type of learning, eSchool principal Glenn said, especially since taking at least one virtual course is a graduation requirement for the Class of 2015. “This is the way a lot of employers are delivering on-the-job training now and professional development, and it’s also something that is happening more and more in post-secondary schools, colleges and universities,” Glenn said. “This gives all of our students a chance to have that first experience in a supported environment. So once they get out there in the real world, they’ll be ready.” Science teacher Stephanie Carter prepares to give a virtual class through her laptop and tablet computer setup as part of the first day of school for Pasco eSchool last year. Joining Carter are, from left, Chinese language teacher Kim Giorgio, English and language arts teacher Heather Kline, and music and physical education teacher Kristi Duffy. (Photo courtesy of Pasco eSchool) By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com They didn’t like it, but the Pasco County School Board last month approved the application of a virtual charter school that was once under state investigation. In a 3-1 vote, with Alison Crumbley dissenting, the board allowed the Southwest Florida Virtual Charter Board to open a virtual charter school in Pasco County — as long as the school meets stringent quality guidelines. It turned a rather significant page in the evolution of virtual education with the expansion of such services in the county. But then the landscape shifted significantly when the state-run Florida Virtual School announced massive layoffs after an enrollment drop and changes to how the state funds it. The future of educating students no matter where they are is at a precipice, and virtual education must find a way to not only survive, but thrive, says Pasco eSchool principal Joanne Glenn. “It’s a great choice option for a variety of families in a variety of circumstances,” Glenn said. Virtual schools are typically done through a computer and Internet connection, and were designed for students who were geographically challenged to get specific coursework from a bricks and mortar operation. Today, however, these types of schools are being used more and more by students looking to complement what they’re already doing in an actual school classroom. “Students in kind of a traditional setting began to supplement their instruction through virtual schools,” Glenn said. “They can take courses to recover credits, or even take courses that can accelerate their workload, to help them complete graduation requirements in their off time, so they can free up space to do a dual enrollment court The LAKER/ Lutz NEWSWEACCEPTCommunity News Publications & education education € Schools € Child Care € Sports € Fitness € Camps € Games More Neighborhoods More CustomersEducat i on D i rectory61,200 READERS IN LUTZ, LAND O' LAKES & WESLEY CHAPELADS BEGIN AT JUST $40/WKThe LAKER/ Lutz NEWS(813) 909-2800 CALL TODAY TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS Community News Publications 813.909.2800 € classifieds@cnewspubs.com EDUCATION & ACTIVITIES DIRECTORY WORKS FOR US!

Heartland of Zephyrhills 813.788.7114Post-Surgical, Short-Term Rehab Offering: Educate Yourself Before the Need Arises Dade City artist makes a worldwide impressionBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Long before Pat Weaver began pursuing her passion for art, she was known as a businesswoman and politician in Dade City. “I had retail stores downtown. I had Tricia’s. Then, I had Church Street Gallery. Then, I had Pat-ecat’s,” said Weaver, who also served the community as both a city commissioner and later a mayor for Dade City. She enjoyed politics and retailing, but was always drawn to art. About four decades ago, Weaver began taking periodic trips to Scottsdale to take classes from accomplished artists. “I would save up money and go out there and rent an apartment and stay two weeks at a time and study,” Weaver said. “Then, I’d come home for a year or two and save up my money and go back again.” She stayed with retail, as she honed her artistic technique. Then, she began offering classes on the side. “I started teaching locally, day classes and night classes,” Weaver said. “I also traveled to Lakeland and Plant City. That’s where I kind of cut my teeth on teaching.” Initially, she painted with oils. “About 20 years ago, I went into transparent watercolor. I just fell in love with the medium and decided I wanted to try it. It was an instant love affair with watercolor,” said Weaver. Since teaching herself watercolor, she has gone on to write books about the art form, and offers workshops around the country. In fact, “I am better known away from Dade City than I am here,” said Weaver, whose book “Watercolor Simplified” is available through Amazon.com. “I like to paint with a lot of energy and see things develop quickly,” Weaver said. “Watercolor allows for that, much more than any other medium does.” Weaver teaches about 20 workshops a year, generally booked two to three years out. She’s taught in Florida, the Carolinas, Georgia, San Diego and Arizona. She’s shared her knowledge in other countries, too. “I’ve taught in the Bahamas and in Mexico, Italy, Spain, England, France,” Weaver said. Most of the students in her international classes have traveled from the United States to take part.She lines up most of the work through art associations, watercolor societies and other organizations that sponsor her workshops. She handles her own travel arrangements.“It just evolved over many years,” said Weaver, who has a home studio on the 36 acres she shares with her husband, Glenn. Weaver said she gained considerable exposure about 15 years ago, when she was elected president of the Florida Watercolor Society. But her love for art dates back to childhood. She credits her mother for nurturing her creative spirit. “She’s the one who instilled that desire in me to do art,” Weaver said. Her seventh-grade teacher, Myra O’ Berry, was a positive influence, too.“She would just assign me a special project and tell me to go down to the teachers’ lounge to draw it,” Weaver said. “She saw my gift.”She pays forward that encouragement to her students while challenging them at the same time. “I want them to be knowledgeable,” Weaver said. They also need to know that excellence requires commitment, she said. “The only way you can become good at anything is by doing it over and over and over,” Weaver said. “You have to be persistent and be willing to practice and apply what you learn. You can’t go and take three days of lessons and then go home and not paint until you decide to go back and take another workshop. There are no shortcuts to getting there. Weaver said she doesn’t try to shape an artist’s style or point-of-view, but she seeks to broaden their knowledge and help them improve their techniques. When she’s teaching or creating art, she’s absorbed by the work. “When you are really into painting, you’re oblivious to anything else,” Weaver said. She has a spontaneous approach to painting. She completes her artworks in one sitting. She said her favorite type of art tends to be whatever she’s working on at the moment. But she does acknowledge a special fondness for doing commissioned portraits of dogs. “As long as I get to paint, I’m happy,” Weaver said. On a typical day she heads out to her studio about 10 a.m. and paints until about 4 p.m., with a break for lunch. Her days go longer when she’s on the road teaching. She enjoys sharing what she knows. “I love to see people learn and get excited about what they are doing,” she said. “They begin to see things differently than they ever saw them before. “Most people don’t pay any attention to the light outdoors, or the colors, or the values. When you start painting, you become very aware of things.” One of the things she loves about painting is that people can do it at any age. “As long as your eyes are good and your hands are pretty steady, you can paint into late years. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to do,” she said. Over the years, being an artist has had its satisfactions and its setbacks. Not every painting comes out the way she would like, but when they don’t, she just picks up another piece of watercolor paper and gets busy again. That approach has yielded a rich life, filled with wonderful experiences and good friends, Weaver said. “It’s taken me a very, very long time to get to the point that I am now,” she said. “But I’ve enjoyed the journey.” To learn more about Pat Weaver and her art, visit www.patweaver.net.

eyed peas, molasses, macaroni and more. The drinks were served in a 32-oz. cup with pictures of the guy throwing rolls on the front. There was a gift shop that had a variety of items in it. Since the owner loves mules, we saw items that were shaped like a mule or had pictures of mules plastered all over it. Branson, of course, is known for its shows, and the very first show we took in was the “Doug Gabriel Show,” who performed No. 1 music hits from various eras. Before the main show started, Jim Owen warmed up the audience with jokes and songs. Doug Gabriel, with his wife and daughter in tow as backup singers, then came on stage to perform songs like “How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You,” “She’s A Lady,” “A White Sports Coat and A Pink Carnation” and “My Way.” His sons, Josh and Jordan Gabriel, did a wonderful rendition of “Wipe Out.” Then his daughter Jasmine, 14, came on stage to perform “Lean On Me.” After that, Doug Gabriel talked about Roy Clark and then performed, “Malaguena.” A touching moment was when the song “I Will Always Love You” was performed.There were songs from each era, and the family performed skits that were shown on a screen that highlighted films like “An Officer and A Gentleman,” “E.T.,” “Titanic” and “Rocky.” All in all it was a morning to remember. The show was excellent and in good taste. It was a superfun family show that was great for all ages. The entire Gabriel family gets in on the act, and each one showed their many talents. Later on, we took in the comedy jamboree in the Grand Country Music Hall. This is a comedy and musical extravaganza starring funny guys such as Applejack, Harley Worthit and Stretch McCorde. The show also has the Jamboree Singers, plus Tracy Heaston as the pianist and an award-winning band. The show had clean and hilarious comedy plus floor-pounding clogging and dancing performed to today’s hits. We laughed until it hurt. The day wasn’t finished yet, as after the show we went browsing into different gift shops and saw many souvenirs and T-shirts. We then went to see the Baldknobbers, a Branson tradition that was deeply rooted in family. Throughout the years the Baldknobbers have grown and evolved, adapting with every generation, but never losing sight of their humble beginnings. Today the second and third generations carry on the tradition of the original family founders. Here you find much comedy with one guy playing against the other, singing, dancing and skits. We had gone here in the past and always left with a smile.

The weather during these hours was nice and brisk. We drove all day, racking up 780 miles, and checked in at Richmond, Ind. The next day, we drove through Illinois and Missouri, arriving at Cape Girardeau, a city known for its murals. While visiting the Cape, we visited Isle Casino Cape Girardeau where there was exciting gaming experiences with great slots and all sorts of table games. The other point of interest was Cape Rock Park. Cape Rock is the site of the original trading post established by Jean Baptiste de Girardot for whom the city is named (with an alternate spelling). The 21-acre scenic overlook offers a breathtaking view of the Mississippi River from the observation area above and at river level below. By Aug. 13, another lovely day of 71 degrees, we were now on our way to Branson. We hadn’t been there for many years, and we were definitely looking forward to it. It is a long trip from the Cape to Branson, but we timed it perfectly as when we reached Ozark, Mo., it was time for lunch.We went to Lambert’s Caf, which is “the home of throwed rolls.” Yes, you heard correctly. They have these delicious rolls that are delivered to you by a guy throwing them to you. I missed catching one and it flew to the floor. But, no sweat, he just threw another, and I made the catch like a big league player.

avoid some of the wintertime congestion that plagues US 301. Florida Medical bought the vacant 1.5 acres of land in May for $35,000. It’s the first time the clinic has purchased land in Zephyrhills that is not part of its main campus, which is quickly running out of space. Space is at a premium at the former home of Kmart and Publix in Zephyrhills, especially once Florida Medical completes a $5 million expansion of its urgent care facility. “It’s already on an outparcel in front of the property, and it’s perfectly located for easy access for our patients,” Delatorre said. Urgent care is a fast-growing industry, especially as people look for medical resources that are both cost-effective and convenient. The expanded facility — which will double in size to 7,000 square feet — will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. What separates Florida Medical Clinic’s urgent care facility from others is the fact that doctors will have full access to each patient’s electronic medical records, Delatorre said. These records detail everything a patient has had done with any Florida Medical Clinic provider, eliminating the need to duplicate tests, and give an urgent care doctor the full medical picture he or she needs.“You can’t always get to your existing primary care physician, so we’re providing a quality alternative that still has all the services available, and the overall experience you’re accustomed to with us,” Delatorre said.The growth of Florida Medical Clinic has been brisk in recent years, first opening a location in Dade City, and then turning its sights south toward Tampa. The company opened up in Wesley Chapel in 2001, and by 2003, Florida Medical had made significant strides into north Tampa. Encouraged by the success of its singlecampus facilities, like the one it built a few years ago on SR 56 in Land O’ Lakes, Florida Medical Clinic is finally bringing all of its Carrollwood providers together under one roof, recycling a former Borders location at 12500 N. Dale Mabry Highway. “The project in Carrollwood is a natural extension of our practices,” Delatorre said. “We are only growing contiguously, and we want to keep that multi-specialty group concept where people can access as many systems as possible. And that just made sense for us on Dale Mabry.” The doors have already opened for the Carrollwood office, and by the end of September, patients should have access to 27 providers from 12 different specialties. It will range from internal medicine, orthopedics and gastroenterology, to facial plastics, pulmonology and cardiology. “People want to get in, get what they need done, and get out of there as quickly as they can,” Delatorre said. “We understand that, so we’ve made it efficient without sacrificing any of our quality.” Although the Florida Medical Clinic customer service model hasn’t changed, the medical industry has. If a practice isn’t attuned to what’s happening with federal healthcare reform, for example, they may be left struggling to keep up. “You have to adapt to what’s going on in the marketplace,” Delatorre said. “The reality of it is the Affordable Care Act provides a solution to make sure everyone has basic health insurance. Patients will now have that funding mechanism, and that is a good thing for us. It means more people will want to access our services, and because of that, we can stay in the business of taking care of people.” CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 4, 2013 9 Dogs play & socialize four times a day!

However, budget cuts in 2009 forced the county out, threatening to close the park, which is located on the corner of US 301 and CR 54. The Zephyrhills Police Athletic League kept Hercules open in 2010, but didn’t return after that. The main problem was the cost to maintain the facilities, estimated at just north of $100,000. Even if Zephyrhills decided to lease the property from the school board and reopen the park, there are some other obstacles in the way. First, the county has plans to widen CR 54, which is going to force both the park and its immediate neighbor to the east, Zephyrhills High School, to give up some land. That means the school’s baseball fields and some of the parking lot to its outdoor athletics complex would need to be reconfigured, possibly taking some of the land where Hercules is now. On top of that, the school board wants to cash in on part of the land, namely the piece that sits directly on the corner of US 301 and CR 54, which could be sold to build a potential gas station there. “We are being asked to give up the most attractive and profitable piece of property and really push it to be a gas station,” said Councilwoman Jodi Wilkeson. “But it’s either that or do nothing, right?” School district officials have mentioned turning Hercules into a maintenance facility for its area schools, and anything that happens to the westernmost piece of the property would still have to go in front of the council for rezoning, City Manager Jim Drumm said. If the city wanted to control that piece, it may have to cough up at least $1.2 million, which is about $1 million more than what the city even has on hand to deal with parks. Allen Altman, who represents the Zephyrhills area on the Pasco County School Board, encouraged city officials to work with the school district on creating something the entire community can enjoy at Hercules Park. “One of the things I have pushed for since I was elected was for us to participate with other governments as much as possible,” Altman said. “It cuts down on replication and provides as much savings and benefits to the taxpayer as possible.”Altman acknowledged that the school board was exploring all possibilities with the land, including a potential sale of a portion of it, but he’s confident both governments can develop the best plan for both.“It’s a beautiful piece of property,” Councilman Kenneth Compton said. “Talk about one of the best pieces of property, and that’s it. Just see this beautifully treed area, and then I just envision a gas station. I don’t know if I like that.” PARK, from page 1 home.” In recent months, the shelter has implemented several programs to help get many of its animals on the right path. A foster program, launched in February, helps animals that are too young to be adopted, but are also without their mother. These foster families feed them, vaccinate them, and help them learn what their mother would’ve taught them otherwise.Volunteers, of course, have always been the lifeblood of the shelter. They have to be willing to offer at least four hours a month, and be at least 15, Gregory said. Volunteers do everything from walking, grooming, cleaning, and even provide education outreach.Adoption specials in September aren’t just limited to dogs. In honor of the late Philip Runnels, who volunteered many hours with those of the feline persuasion, Animal Services also is offering cats for a $5 adoption fee, instead of the normal $40. “Kittens are cute, but adult cats don’t need to be taught a lot, and are very low maintenance,” Gregory said. “They need homes, too.” To learn more about the “Dollar Dog Days of Summer” and also how to adopt a cat for $5, visit the shelter at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land O’ Lakes, or call (813) 929-1212.DOGGIE, from page 1 Jazzy is one of the nearly 150 dogs currently housed at the Pasco County Animal Services shelter in Land O’ Lakes.
