It was a housing boom like no other seen before, a bubble that popped so loudly, it almost took the nation’s entire economy with it. One of the states hit worst by the housing crash was Florida, especially Pasco County, which saw unprecedented new home growth right before the market came to a screeching halt. Suddenly communities that once had to figure out how to build homes fast enough were now trying to figure out how to sell the homes they already had. Life switched from community developers making huge profits, to just trying to survive. And it was clear that not everyone was going to make it through — with all eyes on Connerton. “There were a few times when we thought the market was getting better, only to find it didn’t,” said Stewart Gibbons, an executive-turned-consultant with Connerton. The community, which was considered one of Pasco’s crown jewel developments when it was first proposed in the 1990s, was designed to eventually bring 8,000 homes just off U.S. 41 just south of State Road 52. By the time of the crash, however, just 300 homes had been built, and there was tremendous concern by some there wouldn’t be any more. Especially when Terrabrook, Connerton’s original developer, pulled out in 2009. “There was a lot of information out 54 52 52 597 NS E W 75 75 54 581Land O Lakes Wesley Chapel Avalon Park West While job growth is still not as strong as it should be, one thing communities like Avalon Park West are struggling with a bit is finding enough qualified construction workers.

When Andy was born 25 years ago, I believed no one could ever love him as much as I did. From the time he was an adorable tow-headed baby to a defiant teenager to an honorable man, I have loved Andy unconditionally. In good times and bad, no matter how angry I got when he tormented his little sister or did not call to tell me when he’d be home, and I’d stay up worrying. But now another woman loves my son in a way I never can — as his future wife. And I find that a bit humbling, knowing there is someone else with whom Andy shares his deepest thoughts and emotions. But I am getting ahead of myself. Let me first tell you the love story of Andy Mathes and Erin Morgan. A Lake Wobegon reference stopped Andy last October as he passed by a table full of teachers in a bar in Yuma, Ariz. A first lieutenant in the U.S. Marines, Andy was out west conducting training. Erin was in Yuma as a second-year middle school teacher. The two met when Andy overheard Erin and her friends talking about Garrison Keillor and the “Prairie Home Companion” radio show. I’m from Minnesota and my children grew up listening to Garrison most Saturday evenings. By the time they were in kindergarten they knew all about Lake Wobegon, the town where “all the women are strong, all the men are good looking and all the children are above average." Growing up, Andy spent summers with his Minnesota relatives, and although a Florida native, I’ve always thought he was a Midwesterner at heart. As it turned out, Erin is from Appleton, Wis., and is a graduate of St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minn. With that Minnesota connection, Andy and Erin had enough in common to begin dating. Andy called me after meeting Erin and told me he had that instinctive feeling that “she was the one.” While I loved that Erin had good Midwestern values and was of the same Catholic faith, I was not as sure as my idealistic son that he had truly met his future wife. Of course, Andy proved me wrong. After three weeks in Yuma, Andy went back to his platoon in Camp Lejeune, N.C., and he and Erin continued to talk every day. They met next in the Twin Cities over New Year’s, when Andy conjured up a plan to visit his grandparents after spending Christmas in Land O’ Lakes with me and his sister, Rachel. Andy rendezvoused with Erin in St. Paul, who got away from her family in Appleton to meet up with Andy in the snow. And that’s how it came to be that my father and stepmother met Erin before I did, along with my many sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews. Two months later, Rachel and I finally met Erin. We planned a weekend where we could all meet, and Andy could show Erin the Naval Academy in Annapolis where he had graduated. Not only was Erin charming, but she and Rachel also seemed to have an instant, sisterly connection. I began to think that maybe Andy’s premonition was right. I wasn’t surprised this spring when Erin decided to apply for teaching positions in school districts close to Camp Lejeune, and was proud when she quickly got a job teaching fourth grade. She joined Andy in North Carolina this summer. Andy and Erin’s engagement is clouded with both joy and uncertainty. Andy leaves this week for training in southern California before he deploys to Afghanistan this fall. There he will be part of a team of Marines advising the Afghan National Army. When Andy returns next July, he and Erin will finalize their wedding plans, a celebration that will likely be in Appleton in November, in the church where Erin grew up. While of course I worry about my son’s deployment, I am comforted knowing he is loved by a wonderful young woman who shares his dreams, and will be waiting for him when he returns home. And that is truly all any mother wants. To pass the baton on to another woman who will embrace her son in love and share a future of happiness with him.

The Sept. 16 meeting kicked off the club’s 2013-14 season with a program about sprouting seeds and rooting cuttings, just in time for the fall gardening season. The club always welcomes the public to attend its meetings to connect with fellow gardeners or learn how to become one. For information, contact Pennie at (352) 521-6886, or email jeff352@gmail.com. (Photo courtesy of Pennie Jefferson) This parking lot near Village Inn is a popular place for cars to park during special events in the downtown area of Zephyrhills. This particular parking lot used to be shuffleboard courts just 20 years ago. (Photo by Michael Hinman)By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com Parking may soon be at a premium for visitors of Zephyrhills’ downtown businesses. That is unless city officials decide to pay up to keep some private parking lots open to the public. Leases signed in 2003 have expired on three lots in and around the city’s Fifth Avenue business district. Whether they will be renewed or not could depend on if those lot owners will go from free leases to paid leases. “We’ve talked to some of the property owners (of the parking lots), and I think they would like to see the city purchase them,” said Todd Vande Berg, director of development services for Zephyrhills. “They had been free before, but now I think the owners would like to get some money.” The three lots are scattered in key spots around the downtown district. They include:  The southeast corner of Fifth Avenue and Sixth Street not far from the First Baptist Church.  A larger parcel owned by the neighboring Village Inn restaurant on the west side of Seventh Street south of Fifth Avenue where the Tourist Club used to operate shuffleboard courts.  A third lot just south of City Hall between Fifth and Sixth avenues, on the west side of Eighth Street, controlled by the owners of the former Wachovia Bank location on Fifth Avenue. No matter what the city decides to do with those leases, downtown can’t afford to lose valuable parking, especially when special events take place on Fifth Avenue, said Marvin Matteson, an owner of K&M Travel. “I would hate to see the city give them up, but I would also hate to see the city get ripped off in a lease,” said Matteson, who has operated his business on Fifth Avenue for more than 15 years. Some residents already complain that parking is difficult in the downtown section, even though parking a block or two away is still closer than most people can park in front of Walmart on the north side of town, Matteson said. Still, his employees and others use the leased lots to free up onstreet parking in front of the businesses. “That would be upsetting to our people, and I know it would really tick some of them off,” he said. Most of the leased parking is used for special events downtown, like the homecoming parade put on last week by Zephyrhills High School, said Main Street Zephyrhills executive director Gina King Granger. “On a day-to-day basis, the parking that we have downtown, I think, is fine,” she said. “But these additional parking lots, they are critical when it comes to having all the events we put on downtown. And we do put on a lot.” Granger said city officials have to be sure to think long-range about parking, and not just the needs of today. There are two large buildings in the heart of downtown that remain vacant right now, but if they were to become occupied, it could create a shortage of parking spaces depending on what kind of businesses can be attracted there. “Sometimes, the lack of parking down here can be a deterrent,” Granger said. “Even if there is parking available off the street, if people don’t see it, they may not want to stop and shop at the businesses that we already have here.” Vande Berg is completing his report in the next week, and expects to bring the results to city council at some point in October. Either way, it will be hard to ignore the bigger picture in all of this — especially as the city plans to expand its downtown offerings to include Gall Boulevard once it reverts from the Florida Department of Transportation to the city. “That has really been the spine through the city for all these years, but because it was under the control of DOT, there wasn’t much we could do with it,” Vande Berg said. “But now we are looking at all kinds of options along Gall Boulevard, maybe even on-street parking, so we might have some options when it comes to parking.” City council meetings this month are scheduled for Oct. 14 and Oct. 28, beginning at 6 p.m. at City Hall.City to decide future of Main Street parking in October

By Helene Rubenstein Grand Horizons I understand that many people are starting to come back from their adventures up north and settle in at Grand Horizons, and therefore, enjoying the different activities. From speaking to some of my friends, I recognize the fact that traffic is starting to be a little heavier and, therefore, more time is needed to get to different places. One of the activities was the connoisseur lunch. True, they try to hold it once a month, but September found 32 people enjoying the lunch buffet at Ling’s Buffet hosted by Judy Ellsworth. From what Judy mentioned, they not only had a very enjoyable time with good food to eat, but once the lunch was ended, the women went shopping at Hobby Lobby. If you know the women from Grand Horizons, they love to shop and any excuse for this, well, they pounce on it. The idea that Hobby Lobby was not far from the restaurant, and the fact that there are many items of interest, is enough for the women to decide to go shopping. Also, I spoke with Marie Paolantonio and she mentioned that the Ladies Lunch Bunch took advantage of a new restaurant that recently opened. I do not know the exact date of the opening, but on Sept. 10 they went to Panera Bread. I realize that I had mentioned that they were going here in my last article, but at the time I sent in the news, I never realized what a good time everyone had. I read in our newsletter that it was hosted by Joyce Bell, who said 13 people attended. Joyce also mentioned that they put the tables close together so everyone could enjoy the rest of the company. From what I heard, the sandwiches and the soups are simply terrific. If it is anything like the Panera Bread that we have in Connecticut, then I know the food is delicious, and Marty and I will be going there quite often. Marie went on to mention that from Panera Bread, they went to Bob and Luella Wheeling’s home to help celebrate Bob’s 90th birthday. This is also something that I read was going to take place, but I didn’t know what a lovely time many people had when they celebrated Bob’s birthday until I spoke to Marie. So, Marie, thanks for the update. Also, thanks goes to Joyce Bell who did attend the celebration and informed me that Bob received at least 45 cards. She said all who attended really enjoyed themselves, and the day was perfect. Also, at Grand Horizons, there is a new and exciting activity. Rich Wagner, who is relatively new to the development, opened up his home for any of the residents that care to come to see films. Some of the movies shown are old-type picture shows, but there are also new ones, plus musicals and foreign films. I had the opportunity to speak to Rich and he mentioned that after the movie, they sit around and discuss it. Rich went on to say that he loves to do this, and sometimes he enjoys a movie so much that he goes out to find the book. It definitely sounds like a winner to me, and I hope to participate several times when I get to Florida. It sounds ideal to me. Thanks to Rich for taking the time out to tell me all about it. A fashion show is coming up on Nov. 2 and will be presented by Bon Worth. Kathy Cribbs is in charge of getting the models and seeing that all runs smoothly. Good luck Kathy! I realize that in the past few years we had a fashion show and it always fell on a day that I couldn’t be present as we had previous plans. I am so glad that enough notice has been given so I can hold this date open. Grand Horizon residents are also getting ready for Nov. 16 when they will have a yard sale. It will be at individual homes, plus there will be a book sale, bake sale and lunch will be served in the community center. Who knows what you will find at this yard sale, maybe something that you have been looking for and almost gave up trying to locate. So, keep this date in mind and circle it on your calendar. By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Thousands of people are expected to head to The Grove at Wesley Chapel during the weekend of Oct. 12 and Oct. 13 to check out the live music, food beverages, entertainment and vendors at The Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Fall Festival. The event will include a Little Miss Pumpkin Patch 2013 and Little Mr. Pumpkin Patch 2013. Festivities will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 12, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 13 at The Grove at Wesley Chapel, 6105 Wesley Grove Blvd. in Wesley Chapel. On that same weekend, the Pioneer Florida Museum & Village in Dade City is hosting its first Scarecrow Festival on Oct. 12. The event, which previously was in downtown Dade City, is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Organizers are hoping to attract about a thousand people to the event, similar to what the downtown festival drew in previous years, said Jessica Budin, front office manager for the museum. Children will be able to play games, visit a pumpkin patch and ride behind a tractor. There will also be a tractor-pull event for spectators to enjoy, she said. Other highlights include a petting zoo, crafting and other vendors, as well as refreshments for sale. Those attending will also be able to stuff scarecrows, Budin said. People can bring their own clothes from home to make into a scarecrow, or they can buy clothes to stuff at the event. Admission is $3 for those over age 3. Veterans Elementary School, 26940 Progress Parkway in Wesley Chapel, will be the setting for a fall festival hosted by the school’s PTA. The festival, dubbed “Owl at the Moon,” will be on Oct. 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event will include carnival games, inflatables, a dunk tank, a photo booth, a pumpkin decorating contest, disc jockey and music, marketplace vendors, and concessions. To keep the fall festival affordable for families in the community, the PTA is seeking donations and sponsorships from businesses in the community.For more information, contact veteranspta1@gmail.com, or visit www.veteranspta.com.A number of regional events are also planned for the Halloween season, including ZooBoo at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, “A Nightmare on Franklin Street” at Tampa Theatre, Guavaween in Ybor City, and HowlO-Scream at Busch Gardens.Activities picking up at Grand Horizons 2013 HearUSA, All Rights Reserved. www.hearusa.com Call today for your FREE Hearing Check-up!

Man i on bcmanion@cnewspubs.com They began streaming in at least an hour before the stroll started. Most were wearing pink shirts. There were men and women, senior citizens and children. They all came out for a cause. The eighth annual Sister Stroll at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills on the evening of Sept. 26 was a tribute to those who have lost their lives, or are battling against breast cancer. Many in the crowd had lost a sister or a mother or a friend to cancer. Some had faced the disease and survived. “This is a very special event,” Don Welch, chief operating officer of Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, told the crowd. “It’s a very special event for me because my mom passed away from breast cancer.” Mary Walters was in the crowd listening to Welch speak. She came to the stroll with her sister, Kathleen Coelho.“This is an event I try to support every year for all of the women who have breast cancer, and friends who have had breast cancer,” said Walters, who lives in Dade City.Coelho, who also lives in Dade City, volunteers at the Simpson Breast Health Center at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Her personal experiences at the breast health center persuaded her to get involved. “I was being treated there and I liked the people,” Coelho said. “They recently opened a gift shop, and I think it’s nice that people don’t have to travel long distances to get what they need.” A huge contingent of Southport Springs residents turned out for the event. “We are big fundraisers for the Simpson Breast Health Center,” Carla Evans said. Southport Springs supports the center because it believes it is a good cause, said Barbara Debus, another resident there. “We know where the money is going,” she said. Southport Springs has raised so much money for the center it has a mammogram and a bone density room in the center named in the community’s honor. This year, Southport Springs donated a quilt one of its residents made that will be hung in one of their rooms at the breast center. The community also donated $3,070 for the breast center — raised from a dance, a bra parade, a pet parade, chance drawings on baskets and other events. Those attending Sister Stroll, which was on the hospital grounds, had a chance to sign up to become members of the Pink Army, a statewide initiative developed by Florida Hospital to encourage the early detection and prevention of breast cancer. The campaign enlists new members as Pink Army soldiers. They can rise through the ranks and earn rewards by recruiting other soldiers, attending educational events, scheduling a mammogram or completing other missions. Dawn Seqiueira, also of Southport Springs, said she is a major in the Pink Army. She’s recruited 41 soldiers. It’s hard to find new recruits there, she said, because so many people already belong. “We have a lot of (breast cancer) survivors in our community,” she said. Sister Stroll began as a grassroots event to give the community a chance to learn more about preventing breast cancer, to show their support for people fighting breast cancer, and to remember those who have been lost, said Michelle OswaldBianchet, director of marketing for Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Carolyn Sentelik, executive director of the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Foundation, said the event gives people a chance to show their support in the battle against breast cancer. It also gives the foundation a chance to thank the community for supporting its efforts. “This community is overwhelmingly generous when it comes to breast cancer. It’s a chance for us to say thank you,” Sentelik said. Men, women and children turned out to the eighth annual Sister Stroll at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills to show their support in the battle against breast cancer. (Photos by B.C.

uses prosthetics where he lost parts of both legs in the attack. And Jeffries showed the progress he’s made on them in his first trip back to Zephyrhills since before his deployment to Afghanistan. “The first step is getting over the pain of walking,” Jeffries said. “It hurts when (the prosthetic) hits the end of your legs. You have to learn to deal with that and keep your balance.” For Jeffries and other soldiers with similar injuries from IEDs — improvised explosive devices — it’s about learning how to walk all over again. Jeffries was one of 1,744 soldiers injured by IEDs in 2012, according to the Pentagon. And that was just in Afghanistan alone. While that is an improvement over the 3,542 injured in 2011, it’s still one of the top dangers soldiers face in the war zone. Right after the explosion, Jeffries thought he was going to end up as part of a different statistic — 300 soldiers were killed by IEDs in the last two years. “At first, I didn’t really feel much of anything,” Jeffries said. “Your body has so much adrenaline pumping through it. But 15 to 20 minutes later, you start to feel everything. My armor had caught on fire, my legs were gone, it was a terrible sight to see yourself in. I thought I was going to die.” Luckily, no one else was injured in the explosion, and Jeffries’ platoon members were talking to him about his favorite beer, and what they wanted to do that evening. It was all to help keep his mind off of what was happening while they awaited help. “Your life doesn’t really flash before your eyes, but I did think of all the stuff I didn’t do, and all the things I wanted to do,” Jeffries said. “I started to think about the regrets in my life, and that I was going to die on this ground in Afghanistan.” One thing he absolutely did not regret was joining the Army in the first place. Jeffries made the decision to enlist when he was 19 and not quite sure what he wanted to do with his life. “I was one of those teenagers who made the wrong decisions and did stupid things,” Jeffries said. “I wasn’t going anywhere in my life, I wasn’t going to school, and I knew that the military would make my life better.” Jeffries never feared going to Afghanistan or Iraq, and in fact, joined the infantry so he could end up on the front lines. He arrived in Afghanistan in early 2012, and was shot at within hours of touching boots to the ground. “Anybody who says they are not a little scared once they arrive (is) probably lying,” Jeffries said. “But after your first firefight, where you really have to defend yourself, all that fear and stuff goes away. It’s almost like you’ve practiced all this for so long, all this training is embedded in your mind, and all the fear goes away.”Jeffries has been at Walter Reed since soon after the attack, and while many family members and friends visited him in Washington, he didn’t want to return to Zephyrhills until he could manage for himself. “I didn’t want everyone to see me in such a horrible state,” Jeffries said. “I didn’t want to be reminded of all the stuff I couldn’t do.” But with rehabilitation and his new prosthetics, Jeffries is finding life is going back to normal. Once his stay at Walter Reed is done early next year, Jeffries will leave the Army and embark on a future he almost didn’t have. He plans to attend a gunsmith trade school and open his own gun range either here in Florida, or possibly in North Carolina. Jeffries grew up around guns, has always been fascinated by guns, and feels it’s a great way to combine his personal passions and a career. However, if he could have it his way, Jeffries would do something much different. “I would be back in Afghanistan right now,” Jeffries said. “I have some unfinished business.”813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 2, 2013 8 Dogs play & socialize four times a day!

The construction industry, dormant for years, has now returned. And since relaunching under a new owner last May — CoastOak Group and Hayman Woods LLC — Connerton has sold some 40 homes, and is poised to do even more before the year is out.And Connerton is not alone. Some of Pasco’s other large communities, which suffered during the downturn, are starting to come back. And the timing couldn’t be better to see more people calling this part of the county home.Bright future?“We love the Tampa market,” said Barbara Kininmonth, sales and marketing director for Crown Community Development, which owns the WaterGrass development off Curley Road. “We love it so much that we sold out all our single-family lots at WaterGrass.”The community, designed for just under 1,200 homes, has more than 600 in the books already. With the first phase complete, Crown now has plans to start 356 additional homes using five builders — Standard Pacific Homes, Ryland Homes, Homes by WestBay, Bakerfield Luxury Homes and Arthur Rutenberg Homes. Sales picked up briskly once the housing market returned because WaterGrass spent the money needed to maintain common areas, and to keep it attractive for any potential buyers who wandered in. “We develop communities across the country, and our standards never decreased,” Kininmonth said. “The level of upkeep for the community never changed. We worked to make sure lots were ready for builders, and we continued on plans for parks and other amenities, all as they were originally planned” during the boom. The spring quarter has made many builders optimistic. Metrostudy, a company that tracks housing data across the country, said the Tampa Bay area experienced 1,838 housing starts during that time period, up nearly 48 percent from a year ago. However, actual closings are down a bit compared to the same time in 2012, off by just less than 6 percent. That may be because of the lukewarm job growth in the area. “We’re very bullish on the whole Tampa market,” said David Caillouette, the owner’s representative for LakeShore Ranch off U.S. 41, not far from Connerton. “I would love to see job growth come back because housing is dependent on job growth.” Last spring, 33,300 new jobs were reported in the Tampa Bay region, according to the same Metrostudy report, up nearly 3 percent. However, unemployment rates are still fluctuating between 6.9 percent and 7.2 percent. Yet, it’s a far cry from more than 9 percent unemployment, which is where Florida was a year ago.Help wantedSome of the jobs coming back are construction. In fact, the only reason why the construction industry hasn’t grown faster is because there aren’t enough skilled people in the area to fill the jobs. And that could slow housing growth in Pasco. “We lost an awful lot of the labor force” after the crash, said Connerton’s Gibbons, who also speaks on behalf of the Tampa Bay Builders Association. “They just wanted jobs, so many people moved on to other geographic areas like Texas, and others left the industry altogether, and probably won’t be coming back.” Also possibly hurting some communities is the Pasco County Commission’s recent failure to pass a gas tax hike. Such money could’ve been used to maintain worn roads, like those found in communities trying to get back on their feet. Connerton, for example, built its roads several years ago, but depends on the county to maintain them. “If you don’t maintain potholes, they only get bigger and more expensive to fix,” Gibbons said. “The tax would’ve cost people an additional $2 or $3 a month, which seemed like a fairly modest number. The county has such a strong emphasis on economic development, but it’s hard to do if the roads are bad.” Since the housing crash of 2008, there have been several starts and stops in the market that only teased a recovery. That has resulted in a cautious approach by builders, even as Pasco’s demand for homes continue to grow. “We don’t want a repeat of a few years ago where everyone built far more homes than people were actually able to buy,” LakeShore Ranch’s Caillouette. “People wanted to move to the suburbs before the economy went south, and Pasco was the next spot they were all going to. We expect we’ll be picking up right where we left off.” Except now at a much different — and slower — pace.HOMES, from page 1 An honor guard leads off the Zephyrhills High School annual homecoming parade downtown, which featured 2007 graduate Tyler ‘T.J.’ Jeffries.
