More Sundance, page 10 New pet pantry to help feed Fido and Sylvester, tooBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comWhen families struggling to make ends meet, they arent the only ones who suffer. Sometimes the dog bowl and cat dish go empty, too. A new effort is under way in Dade City to collect donations of pet food that can be distributed to families in need. Those wishing to contribute dog food, cat food, pet toys, leashes, collars and other pet items can bring them to Dog-Mania & Cats Pet Boutique and Pet Lovers Gift Shop, 14012 Seventh St., Suite A, in Dade City. The sponsors of Dogs Day in Dade City decided to set up the Dogs Day Pet Pantry because they want to help people keep their pets. Donations can be dropped off Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., said shop owner Suzanne Gagliolo. After pet food and other pet items are collected, they will be distributed through a network established by Love See PET PANTRY, page8 By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comThe biggest obstacle in the way of an elevated road connecting the east and west sides of Pasco County is public education. At least thats what Pasco County Commissioners stated last week just before signaling their support of the Florida Department of Transportations continued study into an unsolicited bid that would build upward on the State Road 54/56 corridor. I definitely dont think the public understands what we are talking about, Commissioners Kathryn Starkey said. We need to go out to the community, get their input, and let them see what their options are. When I go to them, I see a lot of misunderstanding and misconception, and a lot of understandable objections. But they dont know what we know. They dont get to sit up here and see the traffic projections and understand what the alternatives are. International Infrastructure Partners Inc. has proposed building a 33-mile elevated toll road down the center of the State Road 54/56 corridor, similar to the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in Hillsborough County, using private money to fund it. The ultimate decision on whether it happens lies with FDOT, but the state agency wanted the countys OK before moving forward. Richard Gehring, Pascos planning and development administrator, said one of the main misconceptions is that businesses and homes along the corridor would face giant walls, similar to whats happened in the elevated portions of U.S. 19 in Pinellas County. However, a completely elevated road couldEducation needed on elevated roadBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comThe Zephyrhills City Council got an unwelcome lump of coal in their Christmas stocking after finding out the stately brick and stone library they were expecting was going to cost them a lot more money. And none of them were very happy about it. The council hired the architectural firm Harvard Jolly and contractor A.D. Morgan after they presented an 8,500-squarefoot facility next to the librarys current location on Eighth Street for $1.7 million. However, after going out into the market to look at materials, the two companies came back with a new price tag: $2.5 million, a 47 percent jump. The options? Either go with a cheaper, stucco version of the library, or pay more money. One of my reasons for picking your company is your guarantees that we were going to be in budget, Councilman Charles Proctor said. I run several companies of my own, and being in budget is very important to me. Yet, as Proctor pointed out, there was a larger issue. The prior councils made promises to the city to build a beautiful library, he said. The brick building is going to be a much more substantial, better built, longer-lasting building. We really needed to come in on Commissioner Pat Mulieri says Pasco County officials should show this rendering when talking about the proposed elevated road. This concept would have elevated lanes high enough to provide a clear view across the road, and allow better local car and pedestrian traffic below. (Image courtesy of Pasco County Planning and Development)budget on this. Harvard Jolly and A.D. Morgan were able to reduce the overall cost to $2.26 million, but that remained 33 percent over budget. That can be mostly blamed on the existing volatile market for brick and stone, said George Goodspeed, manager of pre-construction services at A.D. Morgan. When the company sought bids on the masonry and concrete, the largest bid was double the smallest bid, and all of them were much more than they anticipated. The concrete and masonry work, however, would go to Ervin Bishop Construction See ROAD, page8 Harvard Jolly and A.D. Morgan had originally presented the idea of building a brick and stone library for $1.7 million, using primarily Penny for Pasco money. However, after discovering the reality of the market, they realized it would cost 33 percent more to build, and proposed a cheaper stucco building. The City Council opted for the more expensive option instead. (Image courtesy of Harvard Jolly) See LIBRARY, page8 Merry Christmas

She loves to sing, and is the daughter of Doug and Connie Goserud of Land O Lakes.First batch of Wild Wonderland winners B y Diane Kortusdkortus@cnewspubs.comI dont think Ive ever been more relaxed than I am this holiday season. I finished my shopping early at the big Lutz/Land O Lakes Arts & Craft show in Lake Park. Swapped out my tables placemats from autumn leaves to snowflakes the day after Thanksgiving. And have two batches of Christmas cookies waiting in my freezer for my familys holiday party. As I write this column a week before Christmas, I still havent put up my tree nor pulled down the boxes of ornaments I accumulated during 25 years of raising children. And its likely that I wont. As far as outdoor decorations, I plugged in our iconic 4-foot Frosty the Snowman on my front porch, which gives off just enough light to illuminate the wreath on my door. Instead of spending hours hanging lights from the roof and wrapping them around trees, Im enjoying the beautiful lighted scenes in my neighbors yards. After decades of being caught up in the holiday hoopla that we mistakenly think is essential for our childrens happiness, this year Ive said no to those holiday indulgences that make me feel overstimulated, unsatisfied and guilty for not doing more. Instead, I have slowed the seasons pace to give myself the most precious gift of all time. Time to enjoy the spiritual significance of the season. Time to reflect on the joys of past holidays. Time to do things with people I care about with no expectations of exchanging gifts. I never imagined that the holidays could be so enjoyable. I am basking in the pleasures of what I love most whether its reading a book, listening to medieval Christmas music or calling friends whom I have not talked to since last Christmas. Time is a gift I am also sharing with my staff. Weve been off since last Friday when we finished putting together this Christmas edition of the paper. Producing our holiday edition early gave us five glorious days off. Were back to work tomorrow and Friday to get out our Jan. 1 edition, and then were off again for another five days. These beautifully long, back-to-back weekends are possible because Christmas and New Years fall on Wednesday, the same day The Laker/Lutz News is delivered to your home. This doesnt happen often (the last time was in 2002), and were delighted to be taking advantage of the calendar. My daughter, Rachel, is home from college on her winter break, and were using this bonus time to visit family in Minnesota. Were hoping that being with parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins will ease the sorrow of spending Christmas apart from my son and Rachels brother, Andy. Andy is a Marine who deployed to Afghanistan in November, just a week after he was married. But thankfully, while in Minnesota, well be seeing Andys new wife, Erin, because she too will be in the Midwest visiting her parents and siblings. As happy as I am to be at my childhood home for Christmas, I am sad to leave behind many people whom I care deeply about. Of course, it is impossible to spend Christmas with everyone we love. There are too many people, too many miles, too many constraints. But when we get back from our travels, we can give those who remained here our time, attention and presence the most precious gifts of all. This Frosty the Snowman has greeted visitors to Publisher Diane Kortus front door for more than 20 years.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com www.LakerLutzNews.com December 25, 20133 David Heller was a big kid at heartBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comDavid Heller wasnt the kind of guy who had to impress others by symbols of success, say those who knew him well. He was much more interested in how he treated others.Heller died Oct. 29 from an enlarged heart. A celebration of his life took place at Reillys Reserve in Tampas Lowry Park Zoo, 1101 W. Sligh Ave., in Tampa.The 48-year-old was a science teacher at a number of schools including Orange Grove Elementary School, Mary Help of Christians School, Pepin Academy and Randall Middle School. Although he taught science, his brother Mark Heller said he was really a teacher of life. I think he found the most meaning in his summer work, said Mark Heller, head of school at Academy at the Lakes in Land O Lakes. He was one of those teachers who never took a summer vacation. He always worked, and he worked at camps his entire adult life as a camp counselor. For many years, David Heller worked as the lead counselor at Camp Hiawatha in Odessa, and after that closed, he came to work at Summer at the Lakes, the summer day camp offered by Academy at the Lakes. David always taught life lessons through fun activities, his brother said. Usually, they were lessons about character, lessons about respect from things as simple as taking turns, to rolling with the punches understanding that certain things are more important than other things. Barbara Soule, director of Summer at the Lakes, said she was shocked when she heard the news of Davids death. Hes going to be greatly missed, Soule said. He had a knack for connecting with others, especially kids. And they flocked to his camps. The kids were not just taking a camp, they were taking the camp because of him, said Soule, noting he took great care to keep kids not only safe, but made sure they were having a great time, too. To me, he was the epitome of a great camp counselor. I think he was a big kid at heart. He told jokes all of the time, and he loved to tell stories. David Heller taught archery, canoeing and fishing programs.It was very important to him that the kids catch a fish, Soule said, and if a camper was having trouble, he would bring in a trinket and tell the camper it was a good luck charm.Soule said she doesnt know how or why it worked, but somehow it did. By golly, theyd always catch a fish. The kids were so excited, Soule said. Penny Benson, who works in the business office at Academy at the Lakes, said David Heller taught her daughter Brandy how to fish. The family still has a picture of Brandy with the bass she caught using a cane pole and a hot dog, Benson said. When Benson told her daughter about the camp counselors death, the teenager immediately began telling her mom about the inside jokes she shared with the outdoors enthusiast. She loved Mr. David, Benson said. I felt like it hit my family, too. Heller said there was no indication that his brother was ill. He came home and laid down to take a nap and never woke up, he said. Though Im deeply sad, I feel really proud that this really good man was my brother, and he is remembered so fondly by all because he was just plain good. Mikey Mauger, a junior at Sunlake High School, sent Mark Heller a sympathy note after David Hellers death. I fortunately had the privilege of working with him at camp this summer for three weeks, Mauger wrote. One thing I will never forget is that he taught me that loving relationships with good people are more rewarding than any material possession or individual achievement. Those were exactly the kinds of lessons that mattered to his brother, Heller said. Besides Mark, David Heller is survived by his mother and father, Jack and Judy Heller; his sister, Lynn Heller; his sister-in-law, Kathy; his nieces, Eden Heller and Kennedy Lachicotte; his nephew, Ben Lachicotte, and his girlfriend, Lori Capra, of Olympia, Wash. Those wishing to honor David Hellers memory can contribute to the David Heller Summer Opportunities Scholarship Fund, c/o Academy at the Lakes, 2331 Collier Parkway in Land O Lakes, 34639.

Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comJeff Wilson never pictured himself as a novelist. An avid reader and writer for his entire life, the New Tampa man viewed himself as a short story writer. As someone who has pursued many different career paths in life, Wilson honestly didnt think he had the attention span to develop an idea into a full-length novel. He knows now as he launches into his sixth novel that, for him, writing a book is actually easier than writing a short story. A novel gives him more time and space to develop the characters he creates, he explained. Recently, his novel The Donors received a Gold Medal in the Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror category in the Military Writers Society of Americas Book Awards. His 246-page book fuses elements of horror, medical suspense and the supernatural. The award is especially meaningful because it comes from authors who have an appreciation for the sacrifices and dedication that the men and women in the military demonstrate through their service, Wilson said. Thats even more meaningful for him after two tours of duty in Iraq, with the U.S. Marines and with the Joint Special Operations Task Force. Wilsons writing draws on his diverse life experiences. He has worked as an actor, a firefighter, a paramedic, a diving instructor and a vascular surgeon. He was in the Navy from 1998 until 2012 and was deployed to Iraq in 2005 with the 2nd Marine expeditionary force as part of a forward surgical team supporting combat operations in Western Iraq. After that, he was recruited to Naval Special Warfare, where he made multiple deployments as part of a Joint Special Operations Task Force. He transitioned to the reserves in 2008 and remained a reserve until leaving the Navy four years later. Wilsons other published books are The Traiteurs Ring and Fade to Black. The publisher is Journalstone Publishing of San Francisco, an independent book publisher that specializes in the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. Wilson now hopes a major publishing house will pick up his work. His agent, Talcott Notch Literary Services president Gina Panettieri, is now shopping his book, Julians Numbers, to publishers. Meanwhile, Wilson continues to write. He recently wrapped up his fifth book, War Torn. Unlike Wilsons other books, War Torn, has no supernatural element. Its about a young man and a young woman and the effects that war has on them, Wilson said. Hes a member of the National Guard. Theyre in their mid-20s. Shes very active in her church. He and his best friend are in this guard unit thats deployed to Afghanistan. The soldier becomes passionate about religion, through the influence of his best friend who becomes his spiritual mentor. When his friend is subsequently killed in front of him, he begins to question everything, Wilson said. The book recounts the soldiers journey back from war. Now, Wilson is working on his sixth book, a collaborative project with another author, Brian Andrews. Wilson said much of what he has learned about writing has come through trial and error and from being a voracious reader. He doesnt map out his books in advance. As he finishes one chapter, he includes brief descriptions at the bottom summarizing elements of future chapters. The more the book progresses, the more future chapter summaries Wilson will include. I generally dont know how the book ends until maybe the last 50 pages, he said. Wilson doesnt devote full time to writing. He works part-time in medicine and also does contract work for the U.S. Department of Defense. He typically writes five days a week, for a couple hours at a stretch. He said hes found that his writing is more effective when he works in concentrated bursts. He does that to discipline himself. If hes at home and his kids Jack, Emma and Connor are there, he would rather spend time with them than work on his writing, Wilson said. He is married to Wendy, an adjunct faculty member at the University of Tampa. Wilson isnt the only one who enjoys writing. His son Connor told him one day that he would like to write a story. Wilson said he encouraged him to do so, and much to his surprise, his son wrote a 45-page book, which was picked up by a publisher in Chicago. Since then, Connor, now 13, has made appearances with his book, A Giant Pencil, and has even made joint book signings with his dad.

Jeff Wilson never imagined being a novelist, but he has actually discovered that, for him, writing a novel is easier than writing a short story. (Photo by B.C.

Councilman Ken Burgess said he felt the architects were practically baiting and switching the city. You have two buildings here, he said. Its like giving a kid a shiny penny, but then heres a dull one. They both do the same thing, but the shiny penny has already been handed to him. Its a little bit difficult to kind of go back and use the dull penny. It puts us in a bad spot.It would, however, bring the library a little closer to what was first proposed nearly a decade ago, said librarian Vicki Elkins. The original plan was to build a 27,000-square-foot library, but that was quickly pared down to an 18,000-square-foot facility for $3.8 million.Money for it was to come from the Penny for Pasco tax program, with the city making annual contributions to a construction fund. In 2009, however, a flood at the fire department halted contributions to the library construction fund, and they never returned. Had Penny for Pasco funding been added after 2009, the building reserve would have the funds to cover the brick design, Elkins said. There is money that is available in the Penny for Pasco reserve to cover the brick design, and that is what we are asking you to consider tonight. Councilwoman Jodi Wilkeson said if such an overage had happened in the business world, she wouldve been fired. Yet, the library design was intended to help inspire a brick construction style that peeks into the past of Zephyrhills. And the council could not lose sight of that. When you go to a place like Dade City and enjoy the country Christmas stroll, and the county hall is lit up, there is a character to that space that is unmatched, she said. For the most part, some of the most beautiful cities in our country have been built with municipal structures being the most enduring, and the highest quality of design. With the council reluctantly leaning toward spending more money on the library to maintain its original vision, council president Lance Smith added a stern warning to Harvard Jolly and A.D. Morgan. Please dont come back for more money after this increase, Smith said, because its not going to be successful. Ground should be broken in March for the new library, with an anticipated opening in spring of 2015. have far less negative aesthetic impact than many realize. You could have view lines across the roadway, Gehring said. That condition could be enhanced by landscaping and night lighting to soften up the overall infrastructure. Gehring showed a rendering of what he thinks State Road 54 could look like from the ground level. The elevated road was about 20 feet high, but the supports were covered in topiary-like vegetation, and businesses across the road were quite visible. Have you reached out to the chambers (of commerce) to show them how this road could look? Commissioner Pat Mulieri asked Gehring after seeing the images. The elevated road has caused such an uproar since they think it would have this blank wall that would destroy businesses. But this is a totally different concept. But not all the commissioners were anxious to move forward with more studies of the elevated road. Commissioner Henry Wilson said he moves through traffic just fine. I spend very little time in congestion here in Pasco County, he said. The congestion is when I get into Hillsborough County. This is going to benefit the Pinellas and Hillsborough drivers more than it benefits One Another, a program that helps people in need, Gagliolo said. Because of the economic conditions were in, people have had to give up their pets, Gagliolo said. Pet owners typically want to keep their animals. They typically dont give them up, unless they simply cant afford to keep them, she said. For many people, these (pets) are their children, Gagliolo said. When pets are taken to shelters, they often end up being euthanized. The Dogs Day Pet Pantry aims to help pet owners keep their pets and prevent animals from being destroyed. We can get them in touch with someone who can help them, Gagliolo said. The shop can be reached at (352) 4579616.

Although Gehring demonstrated 17 other road options that were carefully considered instead of an elevated road including the construction of a 20-lane surface highway through the middle of Pasco both Wilson and Commissioner Ted Schrader felt there could be other alternatives outside of the corridor that could move traffic east and west. That could include Ridge Road, which Schrader said might not have even been considered by FDOT since it is a county road and not a state one. Elevating that road and connecting it to Interstate 75 could be a possibility. Gehring, however, said that would still only move traffic over the Suncoast Parkway, and would not connect the east and west sides of the county with an expressway option. And such an option will be needed within the next 30 years if the county doesnt want to stunt its growth. In the end, however, commissioners approved a resolution giving their support to more studies on a proposed elevated road unanimously.The elevated road is still quite a ways away, if it ever happens. A member of Gehrings team said ground could be broken within seven years at the earliest, although Schrader said it would be more like 10 years if everything goes as planned. HEALTH & WELLNESS

And for the first time in seven years, theyll bring their famous precision dance moves to Tampas Straz Center. Before they take the stage Dec. 27 and Dec. 28, however, theyll have an opening act filled with faces many should recognize: a team from Contempo School of Dance on State Road 54 in Lutz. Its a once-in-a-lifetime chance for us to dance, said school founder Lani Gunn. The team had just five weeks to learn their routine, which lasts a little more than 2 minutes and 30 seconds, using music provided by The Rockettes. It will involve 32 dancers in all, who will not only take the stage to tease The Rockettes performance but they will have front row seats for the main attraction as well. Most, if not all, of the students performing that holiday weekend will watch The Rockettes for the first time. And that includes Gunn. I have their DVD. Ive just never seen them in person, she said. The school caught the attention of the New York City Dance Alliance, a dance convention group founded in 1993, through its success at various competitions. The alliance will earn a portion of the ticket proceeds for its scholarship fund to help get dancers into school by anyone who purchases their ticket with the promotional code NYCDA9. The teams get just one hour a week to practice together, but theyre also spending a few good hours each week practicing on their own at home. The steps that they are learning, they have learned over the years, Gunn said. Its not like they can just learn it in five practices. Which means for all the dancers, this was a performance years in the making. Erika Hanzelka has danced at Contempo since 2007. My friend just told me to start coming here, and I loved it so much, I started to take more and more classes every year, the 11-year-old said. Other members of her team have been dancing even longer, like Whitney Herd, 12, who started at Contempo when she was 2 years old as part of the studios Mommy and Me program. I always find myself doing tap dances around my house, Herd said. With dance, you can express your emotions and kind of let go. And (Contempo) is a place where you can dance and have fun. Dancers just get addicted to it, Gunn said. When they are 3, they go once a week, she said. And then after that, they want to try some other form, and some other one after that. Many of these kids take between 8 to 10 classes a week. The Rockettes are performing as part of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular running from Dec. 12 through Dec. 29 at the centers Carol Morsani Hall. This is the highest-profile venue yet for Gunns studio, which has operated in Lutz for the last 19 years. We do competitions, and dance at Busch Gardens and Disney, but never at that big stage at the Straz, Gunn said. For more information on The Rockettes show, visit StrazCenter.org. To learn more about Contempo, visit ContempoDance.com. Contempo School of Dance instructor Kathleen Beach runs the dancers through the routine planned for their Rockettes performance on Dec. 27 and Dec. 28. Joining her are Omar Brito, Madison Blocher, Sydney Bruen, Caleigh Hayes and Kelsey Bognar. (Photos by Michael Hinman) Lani Gunn knew when she was a high school student in Maryland that she wanted to open her own dance studio. Contempo School of Dance has been in operation for 19 years, and now has 700 students and 10 instructors. Parents gather around a monitor to see the Contempo dance team put all their routines together for what they have planned for the Rockettes on Dec. 27 and Dec. 28.

Time just seems to fly by, and we all wonder will we ever be finished to enjoy it? Like all similar communities, the Christmas season activities are eagerly looked forward to. Our many activities have a long history here with many of the same residents involved.Our annual Christmas party was on Dec. 14, hosted by Phil and Brenda Knaack. In the past, Santa and Mrs. Claus led the gift giving and usually had some special presents for a select few good boys and girls. Every resident who attends donates and gets a present.Unhappily, Santa and the missus have decided to retire to sunny Florida and not fly down this year from the North Pole. Rick has decided to hang up his beard and the missus her apron. Richard and Eileen Frantz have been exceptional ambassadors from the frozen North to Happy Days. For eight years, they have provided chuckles and a few belly laughs with their performance. A new surprise was unveiled, not unbearded, this year. It was delightful and fun, and one of the highlights. Phil Knaack and Santas Canadian Bert the Elf humorously filled in this year. Surprise gifts for Bill Wellivere (karaoke singing), Linda Jenkins (will work anytime, anyplace), Mona Eddy (everything you need to know), Toni Fischer (domestic cooking), Richard Jenkins (Handy Andy), and Chris Jenkins (pickup and delivery), were given out by Phil and Bert the Elf. Another recent Christmas tradition was on Dec. 21, an outdoor open house for the whole park. A free soup and sandwich lunch was provided by Bob and Bettye Putnam, assisted by their happy elves. Luckily their site is beside a park right-of-way, which allows them to almost triple their lot in size. Park management brought in enough picnic tables to easily sit the hordes that come for the freebees and socializing. It was a great time for all. Hoorah for their community spirit! That same evening, our carolers toured the park serenading up and down the streets, especially the elder residents that stay closer to home. Phil and Brenda Knaack have been the stalwarts of this for many years, as well as very active in the nondenominational Sunday choir. Obviously, good practice. Thanks to all the volunteers that join in to keep the Christmas message. On Dec. 22, our annual candlelight service was in the hall. This is a tradition that confirms the real meaning of Christmas. The traditions culminate with our annual Christmas dinner on Christmas night. From all the residents and management of Happy Days, Merry Christmas! Happy Days residents enjoy all the great snacks and goodies after a wonderful Christmas program.

www.LakerLutzNews.com December 25, 201311 AROUNDTHE PARKS By Helene RubensteinGrand HorizonsGrand Horizons saw 18 women get together on Dec. 3 to have a nice lunch at The Cheesecake Factory located in Brandon. It was a nice ride on a lovely day, and the menu at the restaurant was quite varied. It seemed like everyone had something different. I am sure they didnt, but it sure seemed that way, and the desserts were to die for. I, for one, didnt realize there were that many cheesecakes in addition to some cakes or pies. They were pretty enough to take pictures of. The waiters were ready to help if anyone had a question. This was hosted by Joyce Bell, and she did a real good job. Instead of individual gifts, they collected for Meals on Wheels. This was a community project and it did well. So, our thanks go out to Joyce. On Dec. 5, we found a gathering at the community center for our social club. There was a big turnout on this specific day, as we had an election of officers. We elected for several positions, including a new social director. So be prepared for new and different things. The meeting went on and we heard from Andy Castonguay that a spaghetti dinner for sometime in January. Knowing the way Andy and his crew usually cook, I am looking forward to this. Terry Gardner said a few words about the up and coming Christmas show that John Timpanelli will put on. It definitely sounds like it will be some show, and I do not want to miss it. By the time you get to read this message, the show would have already come and gone. An egg n bag breakfast was on Dec. 6. It was a huge crowd of 80 people who attended. As usual, this breakfast went over well with Dave and Linda Tutin as coordinators with help from Rich and Chris Fulton along with Bill and Karen Donlon, Jim and Judi Leitzke, and Doris Sutfin. The breakfast consisted of eggs or Egg Beaters, plus potatoes and muffins. There also was coffee and orange juice. Later that same night, Grand Horizons had its annual golf cart parade, organized by Brian Heidman. This is a fun night where golf carts get decorated and driven around the entire park. They go up and down each individual street with the riders yelling, Merry Christmas or Season Greetings. These sounds, along with some music from certain golf carts, are heard up and down each street. At the end of the parade, the golf carts were judged, and once in the community center, winners were announced. The winners got a trophy that was donated by Andy Castonguay. The three winners were Vic and LynneRae Dyson, Don and Marion Mattos, and Ron and Joyce Bell. These trophies will be saved for future winners. All the people attending then sang some Christmas carols, and this year we had some entertainment that Terry Gardner was able to obtain for us. Two people came over from Fletchers Music Center and played an organ that was supplied by Fletchers. Songbooks were supplied by Joyce Bell and everyone joined in singing while Tom Robinson played the organ. The entire center was filled with much gaiety. I questioned Barb Sullins and she figured that approximately 120 people attended. Every couple attending brought a dish of goodies, and there were so many different cakes, cookies, breads and candy. Hot chocolate and coffee were supplied by Mim Gardner and Rosie Semian. All in all, the evening was a huge success.Celebrating the holidays in style at Grand Horizons Joyce and Ron Bell are clearly overjoyed to be named winners in the golf cart parade at Grand Horizons.

By Sandra Gilbert-AbelRainbow VillageOur Jingle Bell Dance was a big success thanks to Sue Larkins and her committee. Dinky played great music for us to dance to. He likes to kid around and even dressed like Elvis. We all had lots of fun dancing the night away and are looking forward to our next dance on New Years Eve with Jimmy Smith. A big thank you goes out to Judy Lykins and Ellie Sawyer for hosting our annual Christmas Cookie Exchange. They had been busy making sweets, cookies and punch for our residents that attended. Each resident brought two dozen cookies, with one dozen going to Meals on Wheels, and the other to share with other residents. They collected more than 85 dozen cookies for Meals on Wheels. The cookie exchange started before Sue Flynn our park manager came to Rainbow Village in 1998. Judy Lykins and Ellie Sawyer have hosted the exchange for more than 10 years. Well done, ladies. At our ice cream social, George Raab was our entertainment. George sang lots of different Christmas songs and had us singing along with him. We always look forward to hearing George sing at Rainbow. Our park manager, Sue Flynn, surprised us by telling us we will be having a fruit and vegetable stand located at our new stage on Mondays. This will be a nice service for the park residents. Thank you, Sue. Our annual Christmas Bazaar was in our main hall. A lot of work goes in the planning, contacting the vendors, setting up and taking down of the tables, cooking up the Sloppy Joes which Sheila Remp and her committee did and gathering the door prizes. It takes lots of people to make it a success. Lorna Grassley and Sue Larkins cochaired the bazaar and did a great job. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus appeared at the bazaar to wish all a Merry Christmas. Thanks to all who helped make the Christmas Bazaar a success. Time is running out for buying tickets to our Rich Wilson Musical Memories show on Jan. 8. He will perform songs many of us grew up with and fondly remember from such artists as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Johnny Ray, Bobby Darin, and so many more. You wont want to miss this show. On Jan. 22, Joe Wright, who plays the steel guitar and presents a funny comedy show, will perform. Steve Jeffris one-man band variety show, with guitar and vocals, will perform on Feb. 5. On Feb. 19, there will be a repeat performance by Sarah Getto, singer, musician and songwriter. And, last but not least, the Jimmy Smith Remembering the Legends and Gospel show will be here on March 5. These shows all start at 7 p.m., and the price of tickets is $8 each. Call Sue Flynn at (813) 782-5075. We at Rainbow Village wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Every week several more are coming in. So far, they have all reached their homes here in our park safely. They tell us the traffic is horrific, and Im glad I am not on the road this year. Its been so nice this summer here in Zephyrhills. Our coffee and doughnut socials are filled with news about those returning for the winter, those not returning, and the new people. We certainly have several of them. Thank goodness for Patti Clarke making name tags for everyone in the park, so the newcomers can see and know the people, and we can know them. Our prayers and get well wishes are extended to Neva Roy, Lynn Harrington, Opal Armstrong, Butch Skidmore, Dan Farnsworth, Don Ballentine, Chuck Newland, Elwood Moyer, Bessie Palmer, Jim Pardee, Vernita Perdue, Ron Falsey and Chuck Marentette. That is a long list, and I hope I have included everyone. On a lighter note, we enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving turkey dinner masterminded by top chef Russ Heffelfinger and his illustrious helpers. It was a great gathering and fed 100 people. We have such terrific helpers and workers everything worked out on schedule for the 1 p.m. dinner. Thanks for the great dinner and fellowship. Several people have recently returned from a trip to Branson, Mo., where they experienced the magic of Bransons Christmas shows. The weather was colder than here in Florida, but that only added to the excitement of the Christmas season with all the music and lights. The shows were great, and I thought the Clay Cooper show was the greatest, but most of the group definitely voted the Daniel O Donnell show as the highlight of the trip, as they brought us in his theater through the back entrance, which led us past his dressing room. He came out into the hall and allowed pictures to be taken. It really made so many of our people ecstatically happy. All in all, it was one of the great trips of the season. The crew from Maine has been working on the Christmas dinner, with a meeting to discuss the menu and parcel out the cooking duties. It will be a good dinner and a typical Maine Christmas dinner. Speaking of food, Russ Heffelfinger and volunteers are planning a spaghetti dinner for Dec. 28 to benefit our East Pasco Meals on Wheels. We also have a food box in the clubhouse to collect canned and dry nonperishable food for the Meals on Wheels program. Our annual park-wide yard sale for Gem Estates is scheduled for Jan. 4. Mark your calendar for this date, and also for the clubhouse yard sale on Jan. 11. Loretta Green will once again chair the clubhouse yard sale, and she is requesting volunteers to help with the various jobs. If you can volunteer, contact Loretta. Mary Kay Lynch has announced that bingo games will once again be open to the public, and the first game will be Jan. 8, and every Wednesday thereafter. So you bingo lovers, come join us. Our shuffleboard will also be every Wednesday at 10 a.m. Euchre starts at 6:30 on Monday nights, and marbles on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The crafts club meets on Tuesday at 9 a.m. We certainly have a rash of December birthdays with Al Bennett, Dec. 4; Carolyn Mayer, Dec. 9; Ernest Martin and Mabel Budzinski, Dec. 13; Wayne Macomber, Dec. 18; Richard Burgess, Dec. 19; Carolyn Babbitt, Dec. 27; and Russ Heffelfinger and Opal Armstrong, Dec. 29. Happy Birthday to all! The Gem Estates Christmas parade on Dec. 21 was a spectacular sight, with all the lighted and decorated golf carts and bicycles. Some even had their costumed pets on display. It takes a lot of thought and planning to get a parade of this magnitude together. What fun we had, and afterward we had a gathering at the clubhouse for cookies and hot chocolate. Were looking forward to going to the Florida Railroad Museum and taking a steam train ride to an old logging mill and settlement, also touring Fiorelli Winery for some wine sampling. And, of course, going to an Amish restaurant in Sarasota. This all takes place on Feb. 8, and you can join us by calling (813) 780-1012. Were also going to check out the Hard Rock casino in Immokalee on Jan. 21. Cant promise any free play, but the bus costs $30. Come join us. Have a blessed and Merry Christmas!

By Karen MayHunters RunMany children will have a happier Christmas this season due to the generosity of residents and management of Hunters Run. Tommy Petrucci has spearheaded the drive for bicycles and donations for several years, and this year collected $4,921 an all time high. Projects included a garage sale, two variety shows by Charlie and Friends, and many donations of cash and toys.At the weekly Monday meeting at Hunters Run, Tommy better known as Ziggy announced there was a total of 49 bikes and scooters, complete with helmets, purchased and on display. Tommy, who has worked in conjunction with the Gold Wing organization to raise funds, took the bikes and toys to Betmar Acres in Zephyrhills, where they will be distributed to Pasco County teachers with vouchers for children who are in need. More than 32 Gold Wing motorcycles came into Hunters Run with decorated bikes, and showed their support and appreciation for the residents and their fundraising activities. Also, Randy Lawrence, pastor of True Life Church, received $1,350, for his churchs food bank and helping those in need.

Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com When families struggling to make ends meet, they aren’t the only ones who suffer. Sometimes the dog bowl and cat dish go empty, too. A new effort is under way in Dade City to collect donations of pet food that can be distributed to families in need. Those wishing to contribute dog food, cat food, pet toys, leashes, collars and other pet items can bring them to Dog-Mania & Cats Pet Boutique and Pet Lovers Gift Shop, 14012 Seventh St., Suite A, in Dade City. The sponsors of Dogs Day in Dade City decided to set up the Dogs Day Pet Pantry because they want to help people keep their pets. Donations can be dropped off Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., said shop owner Suzanne Gagliolo. After pet food and other pet items are collected, they will be distributed through a network established by Love See PET PANTRY, page8 By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com The biggest obstacle in the way of an elevated road connecting the east and west sides of Pasco County is public education. At least that’s what Pasco County Commissioners stated last week just before signaling their support of the Florida Department of Transportation’s continued study into an unsolicited bid that would build upward on the State Road 54/56 corridor. “I definitely don’t think the public understands what we are talking about,” Commissioners Kathryn Starkey said. “We need to go out to the community, get their input, and let them see what their options are. When I go to them, I see a lot of misunderstanding and misconception, and a lot of understandable objections. But they don’t know what we know. They don’t get to sit up here and see the traffic projections and understand what the alternatives are.” International Infrastructure Partners Inc. has proposed building a 33-mile elevated toll road down the center of the State Road 54/56 corridor, similar to the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in Hillsborough County, using private money to fund it. The ultimate decision on whether it happens lies with FDOT, but the state agency wanted the county’s OK before moving forward. Richard Gehring, Pasco’s planning and development administrator, said one of the main misconceptions is that businesses and homes along the corridor would face giant walls, similar to what’s happened in the elevated portions of U.S. 19 in Pinellas County. However, a completely elevated road couldEducation needed on elevated roadBy Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com The Zephyrhills City Council got an unwelcome lump of coal in their Christmas stocking after finding out the stately brick and stone library they were expecting was going to cost them a lot more money. And none of them were very happy about it. The council hired the architectural firm Harvard Jolly and contractor A.D. Morgan after they presented an 8,500-squarefoot facility next to the library’s current location on Eighth Street for $1.7 million. However, after going out into the market to look at materials, the two companies came back with a new price tag: $2.5 million, a 47 percent jump. The options? Either go with a cheaper, stucco version of the library, or pay more money. “One of my reasons for picking your company is your guarantees that we were going to be in budget,” Councilman Charles Proctor said. “I run several companies of my own, and being in budget is very important to me.” Yet, as Proctor pointed out, there was a larger issue. “The prior councils made promises to the city to build a beautiful library,” he said. “The brick building is going to be a much more substantial, better built, longer-lasting building. We really needed to come in onZephyrhills to pay $500k more for library Commissioner Pat Mulieri says Pasco County officials should show this rendering when talking about the proposed elevated road.

Morgan were able to reduce the overall cost to $2.26 million, but that remained 33 percent over budget. That can be mostly blamed on the existing volatile market for brick and stone, said George Goodspeed, manager of pre-construction services at A.D. Morgan. When the company sought bids on the masonry and concrete, the largest bid was double the smallest bid, and all of them were much more than they anticipated. The concrete and masonry work, however, would go to Ervin Bishop Construction See ROAD, page8 Harvard Jolly and A.D. Morgan had originally presented the idea of building a brick and stone library for $1.7 million, using primarily Penny for Pasco money. However, after discovering the reality of the market, they realized it would cost 33 percent more to build, and proposed a cheaper stucco building. The City Council opted for the more expensive option instead. (Image courtesy of Harvard Jolly) See LIBRARY, page8 Merry Christmas

She loves to sing, and is the daughter of Doug and Connie Goserud of Land O’ Lakes.First batch of Wild Wonderland winners B y Diane Kortu s dkortus@cnewspubs.com I don’t think I’ve ever been more relaxed than I am this holiday season. I finished my shopping early at the big Lutz/Land O’ Lakes Arts & Craft show in Lake Park. Swapped out my table’s placemats from autumn leaves to snowflakes the day after Thanksgiving. And have two batches of Christmas cookies waiting in my freezer for my family’s holiday party. As I write this column a week before Christmas, I still haven’t put up my tree nor pulled down the boxes of ornaments I accumulated during 25 years of raising children. And it’s likely that I won’t. As far as outdoor decorations, I plugged in our iconic 4-foot Frosty the Snowman on my front porch, which gives off just enough light to illuminate the wreath on my door. Instead of spending hours hanging lights from the roof and wrapping them around trees, I’m enjoying the beautiful lighted scenes in my neighbors’ yards. After decades of being caught up in the holiday hoopla that we mistakenly think is essential for our children’s happiness, this year I’ve said no to those holiday indulgences that make me feel overstimulated, unsatisfied and guilty for not doing more. Instead, I have slowed the season’s pace to give myself the most precious gift of all — time. Time to enjoy the spiritual significance of the season. Time to reflect on the joys of past holidays. Time to do things with people I care about with no expectations of exchanging gifts. I never imagined that the holidays could be so enjoyable. I am basking in the pleasures of what I love most — whether it’s reading a book, listening to medieval Christmas music or calling friends whom I have not talked to since last Christmas. Time is a gift I am also sharing with my staff. We’ve been off since last Friday when we finished putting together this Christmas edition of the paper. Producing our holiday edition early gave us five glorious days off. We’re back to work tomorrow and Friday to get out our Jan. 1 edition, and then we’re off again for another five days. These beautifully long, back-to-back weekends are possible because Christmas and New Year’s fall on Wednesday, the same day The Laker/Lutz News is delivered to your home. This doesn’t happen often (the last time was in 2002), and we’re delighted to be taking advantage of the calendar. My daughter, Rachel, is home from college on her winter break, and we’re using this bonus time to visit family in Minnesota. We’re hoping that being with parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins will ease the sorrow of spending Christmas apart from my son and Rachel’s brother, Andy. Andy is a Marine who deployed to Afghanistan in November, just a week after he was married. But thankfully, while in Minnesota, we’ll be seeing Andy’s new wife, Erin, because she too will be in the Midwest visiting her parents and siblings. As happy as I am to be at my childhood home for Christmas, I am sad to leave behind many people whom I care deeply about. Of course, it is impossible to spend Christmas with everyone we love. There are too many people, too many miles, too many constraints. But when we get back from our travels, we can give those who remained here our time, attention and presence — the most precious gifts of all. This Frosty the Snowman has greeted visitors to Publisher Diane Kortus’ front door for more than 20 years.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com www.LakerLutzNews.com December 25, 20133 David Heller ‘was a big kid at heart’By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com David Heller wasn’t the kind of guy who had to impress others by symbols of success, say those who knew him well. He was much more interested in how he treated others.Heller died Oct. 29 from an enlarged heart. A celebration of his life took place at Reilly’s Reserve in Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, 1101 W. Sligh Ave., in Tampa.The 48-year-old was a science teacher at a number of schools including Orange Grove Elementary School, Mary Help of Christians School, Pepin Academy and Randall Middle School. Although he taught science, his brother Mark Heller said he was really a “teacher of life.” “I think he found the most meaning in his summer work,” said Mark Heller, head of school at Academy at the Lakes in Land O’ Lakes. “He was one of those teachers who never took a summer vacation. He always worked, and he worked at camps his entire adult life as a camp counselor.” For many years, David Heller worked as the lead counselor at Camp Hiawatha in Odessa, and after that closed, he came to work at Summer at the Lakes, the summer day camp offered by Academy at the Lakes. “David always taught life lessons through fun activities,” his brother said. “Usually, they were lessons about character, lessons about respect — from things as simple as taking turns, to rolling with the punches — understanding that certain things are more important than other things.” Barbara Soule, director of Summer at the Lakes, said she was shocked when she heard the news of David’s death. “He’s going to be greatly missed,” Soule said. He had a knack for connecting with others, especially kids. And they flocked to his camps. “The kids were not just taking a camp, they were taking the camp because of him,” said Soule, noting he took great care to keep kids not only safe, but made sure they were having a great time, too. “To me, he was the epitome of a great camp counselor. I think he was a big kid at heart. He told jokes all of the time, and he loved to tell stories.” David Heller taught archery, canoeing and fishing programs.“It was very important to him that the kids catch a fish,” Soule said, and if a camper was having trouble, he would bring in a trinket and tell the camper it was a good luck charm.Soule said she doesn’t know how or why it worked, but somehow it did. “By golly, they’d always catch a fish. The kids were so excited,” Soule said. Penny Benson, who works in the business office at Academy at the Lakes, said David Heller taught her daughter Brandy how to fish. The family still has a picture of Brandy with the bass she caught using a cane pole and a hot dog, Benson said. When Benson told her daughter about the camp counselor’s death, the teenager immediately began telling her mom about the inside jokes she shared with the outdoors enthusiast. “She loved Mr. David,” Benson said. “I felt like it hit my family, too.” Heller said there was no indication that his brother was ill. “He came home and laid down to take a nap and never woke up,” he said. “Though I’m deeply sad, I feel really proud that this really good man was my brother, and he is remembered so fondly by all because he was just plain good.” Mikey Mauger, a junior at Sunlake High School, sent Mark Heller a sympathy note after David Heller’s death. “I fortunately had the privilege of working with him at camp this summer for three weeks,” Mauger wrote. “One thing I will never forget is that he taught me that loving relationships with good people are more rewarding than any material possession or individual achievement.” Those were exactly the kinds of lessons that mattered to his brother, Heller said. Besides Mark, David Heller is survived by his mother and father, Jack and Judy Heller; his sister, Lynn Heller; his sister-in-law, Kathy; his nieces, Eden Heller and Kennedy Lachicotte; his nephew, Ben Lachicotte, and his girlfriend, Lori Capra, of Olympia, Wash. Those wishing to honor David Heller’s memory can contribute to the David Heller Summer Opportunities Scholarship Fund, c/o Academy at the Lakes, 2331 Collier Parkway in Land O’ Lakes, 34639.

Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Jeff Wilson never pictured himself as a novelist. An avid reader and writer for his entire life, the New Tampa man viewed himself as a short story writer. As someone who has pursued many different career paths in life, Wilson honestly didn’t think he had the attention span to develop an idea into a full-length novel. He knows now — as he launches into his sixth novel — that, for him, writing a book is actually easier than writing a short story. A novel gives him more time and space to develop the characters he creates, he explained. Recently, his novel “The Donors” received a Gold Medal in the Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror category in the Military Writers Society of America’s Book Awards. His 246-page book fuses elements of horror, medical suspense and the supernatural. The award is especially meaningful because it comes from authors who have an appreciation for the sacrifices and dedication that the men and women in the military demonstrate through their service, Wilson said. That’s even more meaningful for him after two tours of duty in Iraq, with the U.S. Marines and with the Joint Special Operations Task Force. Wilson’s writing draws on his diverse life experiences. He has worked as an actor, a firefighter, a paramedic, a diving instructor and a vascular surgeon. He was in the Navy from 1998 until 2012 and was deployed to Iraq in 2005 with the 2nd Marine expeditionary force as part of a forward surgical team supporting combat operations in Western Iraq. After that, he was recruited to Naval Special Warfare, where he made multiple deployments as part of a Joint Special Operations Task Force. He transitioned to the reserves in 2008 and remained a reserve until leaving the Navy four years later. Wilson’s other published books are “The Traiteur’s Ring” and “Fade to Black.” The publisher is Journalstone Publishing of San Francisco, an independent book publisher that specializes in the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. Wilson now hopes a major publishing house will pick up his work. His agent, Talcott Notch Literary Services president Gina Panettieri, is now shopping his book, “Julian’s Numbers,” to publishers. Meanwhile, Wilson continues to write. He recently wrapped up his fifth book, “War Torn.” Unlike Wilson’s other books, “War Torn,” has no supernatural element. “It’s about a young man and a young woman and the effects that war has on them,” Wilson said. “He’s a member of the National Guard. They’re in their mid-20s. She’s very active in her church. He and his best friend are in this guard unit that’s deployed to Afghanistan.” The soldier becomes passionate about religion, through the influence of his best friend who becomes his spiritual mentor. When his friend is subsequently killed in front of him, he begins to question everything, Wilson said. The book recounts the soldier’s journey back from war. Now, Wilson is working on his sixth book, a collaborative project with another author, Brian Andrews. Wilson said much of what he has learned about writing has come through trial and error and from being a voracious reader. He doesn’t map out his books in advance. As he finishes one chapter, he includes brief descriptions at the bottom summarizing elements of future chapters. The more the book progresses, the more future chapter summaries Wilson will include. “I generally don’t know how the book ends until maybe the last 50 pages,” he said. Wilson doesn’t devote full time to writing. He works part-time in medicine and also does contract work for the U.S. Department of Defense. He typically writes five days a week, for a couple hours at a stretch. He said he’s found that his writing is more effective when he works in concentrated bursts. He does that to discipline himself. If he’s at home and his kids — Jack, Emma and Connor — are there, he would rather spend time with them than work on his writing, Wilson said. He is married to Wendy, an adjunct faculty member at the University of Tampa. Wilson isn’t the only one who enjoys writing. His son Connor told him one day that he would like to write a story. Wilson said he encouraged him to do so, and much to his surprise, his son wrote a 45-page book, which was picked up by a publisher in Chicago. Since then, Connor, now 13, has made appearances with his book, “A Giant Pencil,” and has even made joint book signings with his dad.

Councilman Ken Burgess said he felt the architects were practically baiting and switching the city. “You have two buildings here,” he said. “It’s like giving a kid a shiny penny, but then here’s a dull one. They both do the same thing, but the shiny penny has already been handed to him. It’s a little bit difficult to kind of go back and use the dull penny. It puts us in a bad spot.”It would, however, bring the library a little closer to what was first proposed nearly a decade ago, said librarian Vicki Elkins. The original plan was to build a 27,000-square-foot library, but that was quickly pared down to an 18,000-square-foot facility for $3.8 million.Money for it was to come from the Penny for Pasco tax program, with the city making annual contributions to a construction fund. In 2009, however, a flood at the fire department halted contributions to the library construction fund, and they never returned. “Had Penny for Pasco funding been added after 2009, the building reserve would have the funds to cover the brick design,” Elkins said. “There is money that is available in the Penny for Pasco reserve to cover the brick design, and that is what we are asking you to consider tonight.” Councilwoman Jodi Wilkeson said if such an overage had happened in the business world, she would’ve been fired. Yet, the library design was intended to help inspire a brick construction style that peeks into the past of Zephyrhills. And the council could not lose sight of that. “When you go to a place like Dade City and enjoy the country Christmas stroll, and the county hall is lit up, there is a character to that space … that is unmatched,” she said. “For the most part, some of the most beautiful cities in our country have been built with municipal structures being the most enduring, and the highest quality of design.” With the council reluctantly leaning toward spending more money on the library to maintain its original vision, council president Lance Smith added a stern warning to Harvard Jolly and A.D. Morgan. “Please don’t come back” for more money after this increase, Smith said, “because it’s not going to be successful.” Ground should be broken in March for the new library, with an anticipated opening in spring of 2015. have far less negative aesthetic impact than many realize. “You could have view lines across the roadway,” Gehring said. “That condition could be enhanced by landscaping and night lighting to soften up the overall infrastructure.” Gehring showed a rendering of what he thinks State Road 54 could look like from the ground level. The elevated road was about 20 feet high, but the supports were covered in topiary-like vegetation, and businesses across the road were quite visible. “Have you reached out to the chambers (of commerce) to show them how this road could look?” Commissioner Pat Mulieri asked Gehring after seeing the images. “The elevated road has caused such an uproar since they think it would have this blank wall that would destroy businesses. But this is a totally different concept.” But not all the commissioners were anxious to move forward with more studies of the elevated road. Commissioner Henry Wilson said he moves through traffic just fine. “I spend very little time in congestion here in Pasco County,” he said. “The congestion is when I get into Hillsborough County. This is going to benefit the Pinellas and Hillsborough drivers more than it benefits One Another, a program that helps people in need, Gagliolo said. “Because of the economic conditions we’re in, people have had to give up their pets,” Gagliolo said. Pet owners typically want to keep their animals. They typically don’t give them up, unless they simply can’t afford to keep them, she said. “For many people, these (pets) are their children,” Gagliolo said. When pets are taken to shelters, they often end up being euthanized. The Dogs Day Pet Pantry aims to help pet owners keep their pets and prevent animals from being destroyed. “We can get them in touch with someone who can help them,” Gagliolo said.

That could include Ridge Road, which Schrader said might not have even been considered by FDOT since it is a county road and not a state one. Elevating that road and connecting it to Interstate 75 could be a possibility. Gehring, however, said that would still only move traffic over the Suncoast Parkway, and would not connect the east and west sides of the county with an expressway option. And such an option will be needed within the next 30 years if the county doesn’t want to stunt its growth. In the end, however, commissioners approved a resolution giving their support to more studies on a proposed elevated road unanimously.The elevated road is still quite a ways away, if it ever happens. A member of Gehring’s team said ground could be broken within seven years at the earliest, although Schrader said it would be more like 10 years if everything goes as planned. HEALTH & WELLNESS

And for the first time in seven years, they’ll bring their famous precision dance moves to Tampa’s Straz Center. Before they take the stage Dec. 27 and Dec. 28, however, they’ll have an opening act filled with faces many should recognize: a team from Contempo School of Dance on State Road 54 in Lutz. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance for us to dance,” said school founder Lani Gunn. The team had just five weeks to learn their routine, which lasts a little more than 2 minutes and 30 seconds, using music provided by The Rockettes. It will involve 32 dancers in all, who will not only take the stage to tease The Rockettes’ performance — but they will have front row seats for the main attraction as well. Most, if not all, of the students performing that holiday weekend will watch The Rockettes for the first time. And that includes Gunn. “I have their DVD. I’ve just never seen them in person,” she said. The school caught the attention of the New York City Dance Alliance, a dance convention group founded in 1993, through its success at various competitions. The alliance will earn a portion of the ticket proceeds for its scholarship fund to help get dancers into school by anyone who purchases their ticket with the promotional code “NYCDA9.” The teams get just one hour a week to practice together, but they’re also spending a few good hours each week practicing on their own at home. “The steps that they are learning, they have learned over the years,” Gunn said. “It’s not like they can just learn it in five practices.” Which means for all the dancers, this was a performance years in the making. Erika Hanzelka has danced at Contempo since 2007. “My friend just told me to start coming here, and I loved it so much, I started to take more and more classes every year,” the 11-year-old said. Other members of her team have been dancing even longer, like Whitney Herd, 12, who started at Contempo when she was 2 years old as part of the studios’ “Mommy and Me” program. “I always find myself doing tap dances around my house,” Herd said. “With dance, you can express your emotions and kind of let go. And (Contempo) is a place where you can dance and have fun.” Dancers just get addicted to it, Gunn said. “When they are 3, they go once a week,” she said. “And then after that, they want to try some other form, and some other one after that. Many of these kids take between 8 to 10 classes a week.” The Rockettes are performing as part of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular running from Dec. 12 through Dec. 29 at the center’s Carol Morsani Hall. This is the highest-profile venue yet for Gunn’s studio, which has operated in Lutz for the last 19 years. “We do competitions, and dance at Busch Gardens and Disney, but never at that big stage at the Straz,” Gunn said. For more information on The Rockettes show, visit StrazCenter.org. To learn more about Contempo, visit ContempoDance.com. Contempo School of Dance instructor Kathleen Beach runs the dancers through the routine planned for their Rockettes performance on Dec. 27 and Dec. 28. Joining her are Omar Brito, Madison Blocher, Sydney Bruen, Caleigh Hayes and Kelsey Bognar. (Photos by Michael Hinman) Lani Gunn knew when she was a high school student in Maryland that she wanted to open her own dance studio. Contempo School of Dance has been in operation for 19 years, and now has 700 students and 10 instructors. Parents gather around a monitor to see the Contempo dance team put all their routines together for what they have planned for the Rockettes on Dec. 27 and Dec. 28.

Time just seems to fly by, and we all wonder will we ever be finished to enjoy it? Like all similar communities, the Christmas season activities are eagerly looked forward to. Our many activities have a long history here with many of the same residents involved.Our annual Christmas party was on Dec. 14, hosted by Phil and Brenda Knaack. In the past, Santa and Mrs. Claus led the gift giving and usually had some special presents for a select few good boys and girls. Every resident who attends donates and gets a present.Unhappily, Santa and the missus have decided to retire to sunny Florida and not fly down this year from the North Pole. Rick has decided to hang up his beard and the missus her apron. Richard and Eileen Frantz have been exceptional ambassadors from the frozen North to Happy Days. For eight years, they have provided chuckles and a few belly laughs with their performance. A new surprise was unveiled, not unbearded, this year. It was delightful and fun, and one of the highlights. Phil Knaack and Santa’s Canadian Bert the Elf humorously filled in this year. Surprise gifts for Bill Wellivere (karaoke singing), Linda Jenkins (will work anytime, anyplace), Mona Eddy (everything you need to know), Toni Fischer (domestic cooking), Richard Jenkins (“Handy Andy”), and Chris Jenkins (pickup and delivery), were given out by Phil and Bert the Elf. Another recent Christmas tradition was on Dec. 21, an outdoor open house for the whole park. A free soup and sandwich lunch was provided by Bob and Bettye Putnam, assisted by their happy elves. Luckily their site is beside a park right-of-way, which allows them to almost triple their lot in size. Park management brought in enough picnic tables to easily sit the hordes that come for the freebees and socializing. It was a great time for all. Hoorah for their community spirit! That same evening, our carolers toured the park serenading up and down the streets, especially the elder residents that stay closer to home. Phil and Brenda Knaack have been the stalwarts of this for many years, as well as very active in the nondenominational Sunday choir. Obviously, good practice. Thanks to all the volunteers that join in to keep the Christmas message. On Dec. 22, our annual candlelight service was in the hall. This is a tradition that confirms the real meaning of Christmas. The traditions culminate with our annual Christmas dinner on Christmas night. From all the residents and management of Happy Days, Merry Christmas! Happy Days residents enjoy all the great snacks and goodies after a wonderful Christmas program.

www.LakerLutzNews.com December 25, 201311 AROUNDTHE PARKS By Helene Rubenstein Grand Horizons Grand Horizons saw 18 women get together on Dec. 3 to have a nice lunch at The Cheesecake Factory located in Brandon. It was a nice ride on a lovely day, and the menu at the restaurant was quite varied. It seemed like everyone had something different. I am sure they didn’t, but it sure seemed that way, and the desserts were to die for. I, for one, didn’t realize there were that many cheesecakes in addition to some cakes or pies. They were pretty enough to take pictures of. The waiters were ready to help if anyone had a question. This was hosted by Joyce Bell, and she did a real good job. Instead of individual gifts, they collected for Meals on Wheels. This was a community project and it did well. So, our thanks go out to Joyce. On Dec. 5, we found a gathering at the community center for our social club. There was a big turnout on this specific day, as we had an election of officers. We elected for several positions, including a new social director. So be prepared for new and different things. The meeting went on and we heard from Andy Castonguay that a spaghetti dinner for sometime in January. Knowing the way Andy and his crew usually cook, I am looking forward to this. Terry Gardner said a few words about the up and coming Christmas show that John Timpanelli will put on. It definitely sounds like it will be some show, and I do not want to miss it. By the time you get to read this message, the show would have already come and gone. An egg n’ bag breakfast was on Dec. 6. It was a huge crowd of 80 people who attended. As usual, this breakfast went over well with Dave and Linda Tutin as coordinators with help from Rich and Chris Fulton along with Bill and Karen Donlon, Jim and Judi Leitzke, and Doris Sutfin. The breakfast consisted of eggs or Egg Beaters, plus potatoes and muffins. There also was coffee and orange juice. Later that same night, Grand Horizons had its annual golf cart parade, organized by Brian Heidman. This is a fun night where golf carts get decorated and driven around the entire park. They go up and down each individual street with the riders yelling, “Merry Christmas” or “Season Greetings.” These sounds, along with some music from certain golf carts, are heard up and down each street. At the end of the parade, the golf carts were judged, and once in the community center, winners were announced. The winners got a trophy that was donated by Andy Castonguay. The three winners were Vic and LynneRae Dyson, Don and Marion Mattos, and Ron and Joyce Bell. These trophies will be saved for future winners. All the people attending then sang some Christmas carols, and this year we had some entertainment that Terry Gardner was able to obtain for us. Two people came over from Fletchers Music Center and played an organ that was supplied by Fletchers. Songbooks were supplied by Joyce Bell and everyone joined in singing while Tom Robinson played the organ. The entire center was filled with much gaiety. I questioned Barb Sullins and she figured that approximately 120 people attended. Every couple attending brought a dish of goodies, and there were so many different cakes, cookies, breads and candy. Hot chocolate and coffee were supplied by Mim Gardner and Rosie Semian. All in all, the evening was a huge success.Celebrating the holidays in style at Grand Horizons Joyce and Ron Bell are clearly overjoyed to be named winners in the golf cart parade at Grand Horizons. (Photos courtesy of Marty and Helene Rubenstein) Decked out for the holidays, the judges are ready for the golf cart parade to begin.

By Sandra Gilbert-Abel Rainbow Village Our Jingle Bell Dance was a big success thanks to Sue Larkins and her committee. Dinky played great music for us to dance to. He likes to kid around and even dressed like Elvis. We all had lots of fun dancing the night away and are looking forward to our next dance on New Year’s Eve with Jimmy Smith. A big thank you goes out to Judy Lykins and Ellie Sawyer for hosting our annual Christmas Cookie Exchange. They had been busy making sweets, cookies and punch for our residents that attended. Each resident brought two dozen cookies, with one dozen going to Meals on Wheels, and the other to share with other residents. They collected more than 85 dozen cookies for Meals on Wheels. The cookie exchange started before Sue Flynn our park manager came to Rainbow Village in 1998. Judy Lykins and Ellie Sawyer have hosted the exchange for more than 10 years. Well done, ladies. At our ice cream social, George Raab was our entertainment. George sang lots of different Christmas songs and had us singing along with him. We always look forward to hearing George sing at Rainbow. Our park manager, Sue Flynn, surprised us by telling us we will be having a fruit and vegetable stand located at our new stage on Mondays. This will be a nice service for the park residents. Thank you, Sue. Our annual Christmas Bazaar was in our main hall. A lot of work goes in the planning, contacting the vendors, setting up and taking down of the tables, cooking up the Sloppy Joes — which Sheila Remp and her committee did — and gathering the door prizes. It takes lots of people to make it a success. Lorna Grassley and Sue Larkins cochaired the bazaar and did a great job. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus appeared at the bazaar to wish all a Merry Christmas. Thanks to all who helped make the Christmas Bazaar a success. Time is running out for buying tickets to our Rich Wilson Musical Memories show on Jan. 8. He will perform songs many of us grew up with and fondly remember from such artists as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Johnny Ray, Bobby Darin, and so many more. You won’t want to miss this show. On Jan. 22, Joe Wright, who plays the steel guitar and presents a funny comedy show, will perform. Steve Jeffris’ one-man band variety show, with guitar and vocals, will perform on Feb. 5. On Feb. 19, there will be a repeat performance by Sarah Getto, singer, musician and songwriter.

Every week several more are coming in. So far, they have all reached their homes here in our park safely. They tell us the traffic is horrific, and I’m glad I am not on the road this year. It’s been so nice this summer here in Zephyrhills. Our coffee and doughnut socials are filled with news about those returning for the winter, those not returning, and the “new” people. We certainly have several of them. Thank goodness for Patti Clarke making name tags for everyone in the park, so the newcomers can see and know the people, and we can know them. Our prayers and get well wishes are extended to Neva Roy, Lynn Harrington, Opal Armstrong, Butch Skidmore, Dan Farnsworth, Don Ballentine, Chuck Newland, Elwood Moyer, Bessie Palmer, Jim Pardee, Vernita Perdue, Ron Falsey and Chuck Marentette. That is a long list, and I hope I have included everyone. On a lighter note, we enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving turkey dinner masterminded by top chef Russ Heffelfinger and his illustrious helpers. It was a great gathering and fed 100 people. We have such terrific helpers and workers — everything worked out on schedule for the 1 p.m. dinner. Thanks for the great dinner and fellowship. Several people have recently returned from a trip to Branson, Mo., where they experienced the magic of Branson’s Christmas shows. The weather was colder than here in Florida, but that only added to the excitement of the Christmas season with all the music and lights. The shows were great, and I thought the Clay Cooper show was the greatest, but most of the group definitely voted the Daniel O’ Donnell show as the highlight of the trip, as they brought us in his theater through the back entrance, which led us past his dressing room. He came out into the hall and allowed pictures to be taken. It really made so many of our people ecstatically happy. All in all, it was one of the great trips of the season. The crew from Maine has been working on the Christmas dinner, with a meeting to discuss the menu and parcel out the cooking duties. It will be a good dinner and a typical Maine Christmas dinner. Speaking of food, Russ Heffelfinger and volunteers are planning a spaghetti dinner for Dec. 28 to benefit our East Pasco Meals on Wheels. We also have a food box in the clubhouse to collect canned and dry nonperishable food for the Meals on Wheels program. Our annual park-wide yard sale for Gem Estates is scheduled for Jan. 4. Mark your calendar for this date, and also for the clubhouse yard sale on Jan. 11. Loretta Green will once again chair the clubhouse yard sale, and she is requesting volunteers to help with the various jobs. If you can volunteer, contact Loretta. Mary Kay Lynch has announced that bingo games will once again be open to the public, and the first game will be Jan. 8, and every Wednesday thereafter. So you bingo lovers, come join us. Our shuffleboard will also be every Wednesday at 10 a.m. Euchre starts at 6:30 on Monday nights, and marbles on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The crafts club meets on Tuesday at 9 a.m. We certainly have a rash of December birthdays with Al Bennett, Dec. 4; Carolyn Mayer, Dec. 9; Ernest Martin and Mabel Budzinski, Dec. 13; Wayne Macomber, Dec. 18; Richard Burgess, Dec. 19; Carolyn Babbitt, Dec. 27; and Russ Heffelfinger and Opal Armstrong, Dec. 29. Happy Birthday to all! The Gem Estates Christmas parade on Dec. 21 was a spectacular sight, with all the lighted and decorated golf carts and bicycles. Some even had their costumed pets on display. It takes a lot of thought and planning to get a parade of this magnitude together. What fun we had, and afterward we had a gathering at the clubhouse for cookies and hot chocolate. We’re looking forward to going to the Florida Railroad Museum and taking a steam train ride to an old logging mill and settlement, also touring Fiorelli Winery for some wine sampling. And, of course, going to an Amish restaurant in Sarasota. This all takes place on Feb. 8, and you can join us by calling (813) 780-1012. We’re also going to check out the Hard Rock casino in Immokalee on Jan. 21. Can’t promise any free play, but the bus costs $30. Come join us. Have a blessed and Merry Christmas!Christmas magic takes over Gem Estates

By Karen May Hunters Run Many children will have a happier Christmas this season due to the generosity of residents and management of Hunters Run. Tommy Petrucci has spearheaded the drive for bicycles and donations for several years, and this year collected $4,921 — an all time high. Projects included a garage sale, two variety shows by Charlie and Friends, and many donations of cash and toys.At the weekly Monday meeting at Hunters Run, Tommy — better known as Ziggy — announced there was a total of 49 bikes and scooters, complete with helmets, purchased and on display. Tommy, who has worked in conjunction with the Gold Wing organization to raise funds, took the bikes and toys to Betmar Acres in Zephyrhills, where they will be distributed to Pasco County teachers with vouchers for children who are in need. More than 32 Gold Wing motorcycles came into Hunters Run with decorated bikes, and showed their support and appreciation for the residents and their fundraising activities. Also, Randy Lawrence, pastor of True Life Church, received $1,350, for his church’s food bank and helping those in need.
