The LAKER FREE The LAKER EAST PASCO EDITION JANUARY 22, 2014By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comSomewhere between 40,000 and 50,000 people are expected to head to Dade City on Jan. 25 to attend the 17th annual Kumquat Festival, one of Pasco County’s most popular events.The festival that pays homage to the diminutive orange fruit had humble beginnings. Phyllis Smith, Roxanne Barthle and Carlene Ellberg were looking for a way to help inject new life into downtown Dade City. They put their heads together and decided to have a festival to honor the kumquat.The inaugural festival was on the lawn of the historic Dade City Courthouse. It included a few vendors, some food and some kumquat growers. This year, there are 430 vendors offering fine arts, craft items, food and other services — and that’s after about 150 vendors were turned away, said John Moors, executive director of the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the event.Cox principal wins state honorBy B.C.

But this weekend, history is coming to Zephyrhills. In fact, it’s landing at the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport Wednesday afternoon. Touching ground are three planes straight out of World War II: The B-24 Liberator, the P-51 Mustang, and the B-17 Flying Fortress. “It’s one thing to see a plane behind a rope collecting dust, but to be able to physically crawl through one and have a close look at all the various compartments — it’s hard to imagine how these young men were able to do any of this to start with,” said Hunter Chaney, the director of marketing for the Collings Foundation, which hosts the annual Wings of Freedom Tour. “These are bare bone minimalist aircraft made to carry and drop bombs, and spread a lot of lead all over anyone trying to stop them. Crews would have to sit in these planes for hours at a time, and if you lost a glove, you’re automatically facing frostbite.” The tours at Zephyrhills Airport are much different than a trip to the Smithsonian. These are fully restored — and operational — planes, some of only the few remaining from World War II. Visitors can crawl right through the plane, sit in the cockpit, and for a little more money, actually ride on the plane. Tour tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children (free for World War II veterans), while flights start at $450 for the B-24 or B-17, and $2,200 for the P-51. Chaney acknowledges the cost to fly is steep, but it’s not cheap to fly planes that were built decades ago. The B-17 itself costs about $4,500 per hour in flight, and requires about 10 hours of maintenance work for every hour it’s in the air. Every dollar raised goes back into the continued maintenance of the planes, all operated by the nonprofit Collings Foundation. The organization started in 1979 in Stow, Mass., with a focus on preserving history. While Collings began with antique cars, in the 1980s, it really began to focus on airplanes, and have been touring these restored planes around the country for the last 25 years. Zephyrhills will be the 2,831st stop of the tour, which usually hits more than 100 cities each year, connecting with up to 3.5 million people. World War II history lands at Zephyrhills Airport COURTESY OF THE COLLINGS FOUNDATIONThe B-17 Flying Fortress is one of the most recognized aircraft of World War II, and this plane — the Nine-O-Nine — will make a stop in Zephyrhills this week as part of the Wings of Freedom Tour.See AIRPORT, page2 If you goWHAT: Wings of Freedom Tour with the B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator and P-51 Mustang WHERE: Zephyrhills Municipal Airport, 39450 South Ave., Zephyrhills WHEN: Jan. 22 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Jan. 23 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon COST: $12 for adults, $6 for children under 12; World War II veterans free INFO: (800) 568-8924Time to celebrate kumquats again

ADAMS Workers Compensation Slips and falls Negligent death Auto and motorcycle accidents Amputations and burns Dog bites Injuries to children Facial and sight injuries We will visit you at the hospital or home By Diane KortusPublisherJust about every conversation I’ve had this past week with family, friends or customers quickly gravitated to reports of the shooting at Cobb Theatres/Grove 16 & CineBistro in Wesley Chapel. And I bet it was the same with you. Most of us here in Pasco and north Hillsborough go to movies at The Grove and can easily visualize the setting. We know the layout — theaters one through eight are to the left, and nine through 16 are to the right. We’ve eaten popcorn from the same popper that made the snack that is said to have escalated an encounter between two patrons into the deadly scene. And if you’re like me, the thought crossed your mind that you could have been in the theater when it happened. You too may have been bothered at one time or another by someone close by using their cell phone in blatant disregard for the rules and for others. There’s little I can add to the discussion of what happened and why, and how this tragedy could have been prevented if only some common sense had prevailed. We all feel horrible that this shooting happened in our community, and because it did, it feels personal and haunting. You may have noticed that we do not write about the shooting anywhere else in this week’s paper. And you may wonder why that is. How could your local weekly newspaper ignore such a huge news event that has received national and international coverage?Here’s why. It is not our role to regurgitate news that already has been covered 24/7 by every news organization out there. Within 48 hours of the shooting, you had all the reporting and analysis you’d ever want or need. Sometimes we do write about state or national news originating in our circulation area if we can localize the story with information specific for our readers. An example is our story about the $590 million Powerball ticket that was sold to an elderly Zephyrhills resident last May. Before the winner came forward, B.C. Manion wrote about problems that often arise from such instantaneous wealth, interviewing a local psychologist, financial planner and attorney. This story worked in our format because B.C. talked to experts who also are our neighbors. And because winning the lottery is a fantasy we all share, B.C.’s story gave us helpful suggestions we could all dream about using someday.My staff and I talked about to how best to cover the Wesley Chapel shooting in today’s paper, a week and a half after it happened. And we decided there really was no local angle that was not already covered by Tampa’s many news outlets in print, broadcast, cable and digital. In fact, we thought some of the stories pursued seemed forced, and we questioned their validity and the amount of attention they received.So instead of a story, we thought this column was the best way to acknowledge the shooting and to let you know why it is not on our front page this week. Why we didn’t cover the Cobb shooting PUBLISHER’S COLUMN FEB 5-8, 2014 Mahaffey Theater, St. Petersburg 888.974.3698 | 727.248.0115 ShenYun.com Presented by Florida Falun Dafa Association, Inc. ALL-NEW 2014 SHOW with live orchestra “It really appeals to the curiosity of people from all walks of life,” Chaney said. “It’s such a rare opportunity to touch and experience and interact with this history, particularly when we come into areas like Zephyrhills.” This is the second time the Wings of Freedom Tour has made a stop in Zephyrhills, and it might not have happened this time if it weren’t for airport manager Mike Handrahan, Chaney said. “He has been in aviation for years now, and he’s helped us bring the tour into all the various airports he’s worked at,” Chaney said. The B-24 coming to Zephyrhills was built in 1944 for the U.S. Army, and saw combat in the Pacific Theater with the Royal Air Force. The Liberator is the last of its kind still flying, which is surprising considering it also was the most mass-produced plane in history. The B-17, known as “Nine-O-Nine,” was finished too late to see actual combat, but it was subjected to the effects of three nuclear bomb detonations. Soon after it was restored in the mid-1980s, the “Nine-O-Nine” had an accident in western Pennsylvania. No one was killed, but the plane was not expected to fly again. It took thousands of volunteer hours and thousands of dollars in donations, but the plane was fully restored and has flown without incident now in nearly 2,400 stops. The P-51 was designed as a one-seater, but it was Collings that not only restored the plane, but added additional seating so that even passengers without a pilot license could experience the Mustang in flight. The planes will be open to the public Jan. 22 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. Flights usually take place before and after ground tour times. For more information, call (800) 5688924. “We call these guys part of the Greatest Generation,” Chaney said. “What they did and what they endured is incredible. However awful World War II was, we would not have been able to win it without them.” AIRPORT, from page 1

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com www.LakerLutzNews.com January 22, 20143 By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comWhen Amanda Lakes opened her hair salon, Charm Hair Studio, on the corner of Seventh Street and Fifth Avenue, she added something downtown Zephyrhills had never seen before. It was a small box, with a little door. And inside, it was filled with books. A small wood-carved sign on top advertised it as a Little Free Library, and encouraged anyone to “take a book” or “return a book.”“There is no real system to it; you just take a book or leave a book,” Lakes said. “People ask me if anyone ever steals the books. But you can’t steal them, they’re already free.” Lakes opened Charm at the former Main Street Zephyrhills office last August. Deciding to add a free library was an afterthought, but she spent a day building the stand. For the door, she “cheated” and was able to adapt an old picture frame.But the Little Free Library is not just something Lakes developed on a whim. In fact, the national movement started a few years ago in Wisconsin when Todd Bol built a small wooden box in the shape of a one-room schoolhouse to honor his mother. He placed it in his front yard and filled it with books.It was a hit in his neighborhood, and a movement was born. There are now hundreds of them all over the country, and a handful on nearly every continent. Florida alone boasts more than 50 of them, with the closest one outside of Zephyrhills in Lakeland. “It is a topic of conversation a lot,” Lakes said. “It would be nice if more business owners would do it, too, but I don’t know if they see the value in it. I am not doing it to promote the salon business. I do it because I like working downtown, and it’s a way to do something fun and helpful for the community.” But other businesses could do the same thing, and maybe even stock it with books that relate to their business. A travel agency, for example, could keep their library filled with travel books, Lakes said. People are stopping in her shop so often to donate books for the library, Lakes stores many of them in a work closet until there’s room. People will come and take books from her outside stand, and some will even bring them back later on, complete with notes in the margins, or even messages to future readers. “People will review the books, writing what they thought of it,” Lakes said. “I’ve even had people go back and forth with conversation, almost like it’s a mobile book club. There is this kind of attraction to the whole thing, especially now in a world where everything is so technology-driven.” The Little Free Library sits outside Charm at 5224 Seventh St., and never closes. “It’s always open, and anyone who just happens to be walking by is free to explore,” Lakes said. MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFFAmanda Lakes sorts through some of the books stored outside her shop on Seventh Street and Fifth Avenue.This little library never closes The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Zephyr Shrine Club presented a donation of $7,000 to Shriners Hospital for Children at the Egypt Shrine in Tampa on Dec. 11. The donation was earmarked specifically for the transportation of children to these nonprofit hospitals that have transformed the lives of children for more than 90 years. There are 22 Shriners hospitals in North America, serving children with burns, scoliosis, cleft palate, orthopedic conditions, spinal cord injuries, and other serious conditions. Patients are cared for in a familycentered environment, and are provided with medical treatments, rehabilitation, psychological support services, and transitional services regardless of the patient’s or family’s ability to pay. Headquartered in Tampa, this network of nonprofit hospitals is known worldwide as “The World’s Greatest Philanthropy.” Shriners Hospitals for Children have been responsible for some of the most significant advancements in burn care, namely skin grafting and the development of engineered skin. The hospitals not only provide surgery and medical treatment for children, but also house research teams, which pursue advanced and improved methods of treatment and care through ongoing research and development efforts. In Zephyrhills, funds to be donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children are raised year-round through yard sales, aluminum can tab drives, ink cartridge collections, luncheons, fashion shows, performances, donation collections, and other events and activities. They are conducted by local entities such as the Zephyr Shrine Club, Ladies Oriental Shrine Cairo Court 97, Crescent Chapter 54 Order of the Eastern Star, and Masonic Lodge 198.To learn more about Shriners Hospitals for Children, visit ShrinersHospitalsForChildren.org.

Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comKristen Ingle is looking forward to Shen Yun 2014 because she had such a great time attending the show at Mahaffey Theater with her daughter last year. Ingle’s adopted daughter, Macy, was born in China. Ingle believes Shen Yun provides her 9year-old a chance to become more familiar with the culture of her birthplace. “It’s definitely worth seeing,” said Ingle of South Tampa, who is bringing along her mother and some friends who have also adopted two daughters from China. “I like that it tells the stories of the history of China, all of the folklore. And the music — I really liked that they had both Western and Chinese instruments.” She thinks it’s great entertainment for people of any age. The children like it because it’s so visual, Ingle said. In fact, Macy said her favorite parts were the costumes and the dancers who performed with teacups on their heads. “It’s a story told through dance and music,” Ingle said. “The story really comes through.” Shirley Hu, a volunteer coordinator for Shen Yun, said she first saw the show while living in New York. “I fell in love with it because it’s about the revival of the traditional Chinese culture, which I truly believe in,” said Hu, a native of Taiwan. “Traditional Chinese culture is about moral values and ethics.” Shen Yun, which translates into “the beauty of heavenly beings dancing,” is based in New York. It has three touring companies of about 100 members each, which travel through the United States, Asia and Europe. Hu is handling the logistics for the upcoming Shen Yun 2014 performances Feb. 5 through Feb. 8, at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. The two-and-a-half-hour show, which includes a 15-minute intermission, features about 20 pieces, including dancers accompanied by orchestral music and vocal performances. The orchestra combines Western classical music along with music from ancient Chinese instruments including the gong, the dizi and the erhu. The dizi is a bamboo flute, and the erhu is a two-stringed instrument, sometimes called a Chinese violin, which dates back 4,000 years. When Chinese and Western music come together, they produce what Hu describes as “a glorious sound.” Orchestral music plays as dancers glide gracefully across the stage, using the movement of their body, as well as facial expressions, to tell stories. The dances incorporate high-flying leaps, spins and acrobatic moves, but are much more than sheer technique, according to interviews by principal dancers on YouTube videos. Shen Yun performers seek to convey a spiritual connection behind each dance movement and musical note, they said. They seek to express of joy, sorrow, delight, grief, anger, illness and majesty by immersing themselves into the mindset and emotions of the characters they portray. “You can actually see the facial expressions,” Hu said. “I always feel what makes the show so successful is because of the spirituality behind it.” The pieces move from one story to another, sharing Chinese folklore and legends, as well as true stories. The dancers wear handmade costumes, representing everything from the Tang Dynasty’s Raiment of Rainbows and feathers to imperial dragon robes, coronets and cloud caps. They wear colorful flowing robes, as well as the attire of the Manchurian Tibet, Dai, Mongol and Uyghur ethnic groups. More than 400 costumes are used in a single show, Hu said. The show also uses a 3-D backdrop to help bring stories to life. Performers tour for half of the year then return to New York to prepare for the next year’s tour. It takes thousands of hours to hone their technique and learn the choreography. Each year, they tour with an entirely new show. “Every year, I look forward to different stories,” Hu said. “A lot of the stories are the stories I was taught by my mom.” If you goWHAT: Shen Yun, a production that revives 5,000 years of Chinese culture through music and dance WHERE: The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg WHEN: Feb. 5-8COST: Tickets range from $52.50 to $202.50Sharing Chinese culture through music and danceCOURTESY OF SHEN YUNDancers perform many routines, which require intricate moves and balance, including this dance, which involves balancing bowls on their heads while moving across the stage.

www.LakerLutzNews.com January 22, 20147 Pasco leading new effort to amend ConstitutionBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comIt’s nearly impossible to get Democrats and Republicans in Congress to agree on anything these days, but a state senator from Pasco County might have a way to bring them together — even if it’s to campaign against his plan. State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, wants to do something this country hasn’t seen in 227 years: to call a Constitutional convention, with a goal of adding what he feels is an important amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He wants to force the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to limit all bills to a single subject. “This is about having the federal government start conducting themselves in a professional manner,” Simpson said. “Most of the frustration we have with our government is that you have something like a spending bill in Congress. They always add on several hundred millions of dollars of something that has nothing to do with the subject they are dealing with. And as a citizen of the state of Florida, I am tired of our federal government being operated this way.” Simpson is referring to what are known as “riders,” typically additional controversial legislation added to a major bill that would likely never pass on its own, and usually used to help negotiate support on a bill from individual members. Those riders can contain all kinds of requests, but more often than not approves some project in a congressman’s district that might not have been funded otherwise. Riders also can be used to delay other major bills by adding unrelated items to it those supporting the main bill would be against. “Both parties are guilty about the use of riders,” said W. Spider Webb Jr., a former Tallahassee-based lobbyist who founded the Single Subject Amendment organization. “We are not trying to give Congress a black eye. We are trying to improve the way Americans view Congress.” Approval ratings of Congress are at historic lows, a lot of it based on the gridlock found within the walls of its chambers on Capitol Hill. Many on the outside don’t believe the word “bipartisan” exists anymore, and unpopular riders to bills dealing with the federal budget have stalled many of them on the floor of Congress. Riders are business as usual in Congress, but it’s not that way in Florida and 40 other states, Simpson said. “Our federal government should learn to live within its means, have a balanced budget, and pass bills on their own merit, just as states have to,” Simpson said. State governments prevent riders either by requiring bills to be single-subject, or giving governors the power to veto specific portions of a bill and approving the rest. President Bill Clinton signed a line-item veto act into law introduced by U.S. Sen. Bob Dole in 1996, but it was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court two years later. Simpson wants Florida to be the first of the 34 states needed to call for a Constitutional convention, which would put Pasco County on the forefront of history. The last time a Constitutional convention was called, it took place in Philadelphia in 1787, and created what would become the U.S. Constitution. “If Florida passes this, then other states will take a more serious look at this,” Simpson said. “Doing a Constitutional amendment is such a large task, and I think it will pick up momentum as more states pass it.” All Constitutional amendments since the Bill of Rights have gone through Congress. Simpson and Webb, however, suspect Congress won’t be so quick to take on an amendment that would change everything they know in Washington, D.C. A Constitutional convention would bypass Congress, and any approved measure would then require 38 states to ratify. U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, said he likes the idea, but has some reservations. “In general, I support the idea of singlesubject legislation,” Ross told The Laker/Lutz News in an email. “Although it may be more difficult to pass a lot of bills, at least we would remove irrelevant riders that are usually attached to current legislation.” The problem, however, is when Congress has to deal with large complicated issues, which would be difficult to break down into individual bills. “My concerns with a Constitutional amendment limiting all bills to single-subject bills is that it would restrict the ability to take legislative action in an omnibus fashion in the event of an emergency or catastrophe,” Ross said. Webb knows it’s an uphill battle from here to get a Constitutional convention. In the last 50 years, two attempts to call a Constitutional convention fell just short. And if it were to happen, it might open a plethora of other legal issues — especially on the topic of whether a Constitutional convention has to be single-subject or not. Some scholars believe that once a convention is called, any subject can be brought to the table. It’s worth that risk, Webb said. “This simple procedural, nonpartisan provision would have a profound effect on the way Congress conducts business,” he said. “As a result, you would be limiting pork barrel spending … and you would be increasing the institutional accountability of Congress.” Simpson’s Senate measure has a companion in the House introduced by State Rep. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello. Simpson says his measure should have its first committee hearing next month.For more information on the national movement, visit SingleSubjectAmendment.com. State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, right, and Single Subject Amendment PAC founder W. Spider Webb Jr., middle, meets with Florida Senate president Don Gaetz, left, on Jan. 9 to discuss calls for a Constitutional convention. COURTESY OF SINGLE SUBJECT AMENDMENT PAC Crooked Creek Ranch hosts fundraiserRepublican candidates for the state House — Danny Burgess, Shawn Harrison, Chris Latvala and Chris Sprowls — will raise money through a Wild Game Dinner at Crooked Creek Ranch, 29325 Darby Road, Dade City, Jan. 31 beginning at 5 p.m. Donations will be accepted up to the state maximum of $1,000 per individual to support each campaign.Burgess, the current mayor of Zephyrhills, is facing a primary against Minerva Diaz in District 38, the seat currently held by Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. Harrison also has a Republican primary challenger for District 63, Bret Wedding, for a seat currently held by Mark Danish, D-Tampa. Latvala has filed to run in District 67 in a seat currently held by Ed Hooper, RClearwater. He’s facing Christopher Shepard and Frederick Thomson so far in the primary. Sprowls is a candidate for District 65, in a seat currently held by Carl Zimmerman, DPalm Harbor. He is expected to face off with Debbie Faulkner in his primary.

Moore leads commission fundraisingMichael Moore has picked up a fast fundraising start in the race to replace Pat Mulieri on the Pasco County Commission.Through the end of the year, Moore — a Wesley Chapel resident who founded CareFirst Home Care in 2004 — has raised $40,715, which is four times his opponent, Bob Robertson. Both are running as Republicans.Moore’s biggest boost came just after Thanksgiving from Tarpon Springs businessman Lew Friedland, who contributed $8,000 through various corporations.Robertson, a self-employed asset manager from Zephyrhills, loaned his campaign $3,000 right at the start. In his first few months campaigning, he raised more than $3,500 additional cash donations from outside Florida.POLITICALAGENDA

There also will be two entertainment stages, a car and truck show, children’s activities, and a health and wellness section, Moors said. The festival is a magnet for visitors and has raised Dade City’s profile. It was heralded by the Pasco County Tourism Board as the Pasco County Event of the Year in 2012 and has enjoyed the distinction of being named a “Top 20 Event” by the Southeast Tourism Society, which selects premier events in 13 Southeastern states. It gives the community a chance to show off its old-fashioned charm and gives eventgoers an opportunity to enjoy a family-friendly event, with free parking and admission, Moors said. Offering the event without charging an admission means that organizers must cover costs from vendor fees and sponsors, and drum up support from volunteers. Fortunately, the festival enjoys the help of the city, county and state governments, as well as corporate sponsors. Community volunteers play a vital role, too, Moors said. Volunteers from Calvary Assembly of God Church, for instance, help set a friendly tone for visitors by doling out bottles of water to people who park in the satellite lot at the Pasco County Fairgrounds.Getting ready for the festival requires thorough planning and some elbow grease, starting a year ahead of the event to make sure all of the logistics are covered, Moors said.On festival day, volunteers are up well before sunrise to pitch in. “We have hundreds of local volunteers that start at 4:30 in the morning to get all of the vendors in and get all of our things in and set up,” Moors said. “By 9 o’clock, which is the festival opening time, we’re all ready to go.” There’s plenty of parking with the satellite lots, but last year organizers discovered that those using the shuttles had to wait too long. So, this year there are more shuttle buses, and the bus routes have been tweaked to prevent long waits. Moors expects the festival to attract 5,000 to 10,000 more people this year because of increased marketing efforts. This year, event organizers are making a bigger push to try to entice people from Sun City Center, The Villages, Wesley Chapel, New Tampa and the Nature Coast in Pinellas to make the trip to Dade City. The event has a regional impact, Moors said. Using the same formula Visit Florida uses for fairs and festivals, he believes $1 million exchanges hands over the course of the festival. Of course, much of that money goes to the vendors, but the event has an impact in Dade City, too, he said.“I’ve had restaurants tell me that they do one week’s worth of business in that one day,” he said. “Our merchant’s association is geared up. They know that if they don’t make a sale on that day, there’s a good possibility that they can make a connection for somebody to come back and visit again and perhaps buy because they like what they see.”The king of the event is the kumquat. Described as the “little gold gem of the citrus industry” by kumquat promoters, the fruit can be found in virtually every form at the festival. Vendors will offer kumquat pie, kumquat salsa, kumquat jam, kumquat jelly, kumquat preserves, kumquat ice cream, and even kumquat lotions and soaps. It’s easy to understand why the event attracts big crowds, Moors said. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful family experience and experience for mature adults who enjoy a good, old-fashioned, downhome unique Florida experience,” he said.

MANION/STAFFJohn Moors holds a poster promoting the 17th annual Kumquat Festival presented by the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. He thinks the event will draw between 40,000 and 50,000 to the East Pasco County city this year. other student and school characteristics. The predicted student achievement scores were determined by using previous Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores. Two elementary, two middle and two high school principals of high-risk Florida public schools will be honored in a Jan. 23 ceremony in Tallahassee, where they will receive statewide recognition and a $5,000 cash prize. Reins, who is from a family of educators, said her mother will accompany her to the ceremony. The award aims to acknowledge that schools that perform well require great leadership, said Dominic M. Calabro, president and chief executive officer of Florida TaxWatch. A principal has to balance many competing demands. Principals are the CEOs of their school. While teachers are on the front lines delivering instruction, it takes excellence at the top to create the atmosphere that nurtures, advances and retains great teachers, he said. High-risk schools were selected for the award because the idea is to demonstrate that all students can, in fact, learn — regardless of language barriers, income level or other potential obstacles, Calabro said. An outstanding leader can turn around a school that’s not working, but a poor leader can quickly undo excellence, he added. The goal of the program is to study what these principals are doing and to replicate successful approaches elsewhere. It’s also important to include these principals in discussions about state educational policy, he said. The principals will be incorporated into a five-year study performed by the Learning Systems Initiative to identify a principal’s role in recruiting, retaining and developing outstanding teachers. The awards are based solely on state Department of Education data. When Reins received word she’d been named an Elite Principal, she was shocked. “I had no idea that that award even existed,” said Reins, who has been at the helm of Cox Elementary for five years. “What’s so nice about this award is that it is based on data. Not nominations. It’s based on facts. The data doesn’t lie. It is what it is.” She said her school uses a team approach. “This is a tribute to the hardworking staff that I have,” Reins said. “I told the teachers, ‘It’s because of you. This is our award, not mine.’” But it’s not just the teachers who deserve kudos, she said. “Everybody here in this school is very dedicated to our students in more ways than one,” she said. “We all truly care about them — everyone from the cafeteria staff, who provides nutrition to our students, to the custodial staff that maintains a clean and safe learning environment.” There is a culture of high expectation, coupled with support, Reins said. “There are no excuses. We know that our children can rise to the occasion, rise to our expectations. We just need techniques and strategies to help them move along.” Teachers meet weekly to share strategies and do grade-level planning. It allows them to talk, solve problems, and plan lessons to meet the needs of each and every student, she said. “There may be a child that is low in reading, but high in math. They’re going to emphasize those strengths,” Reins said. “This significantly affects their (students’) self confidence and their eagerness to learn. It affects their whole attitude about school and its relevance to their lives.” The teachers use data to inform their instruction. They seek advice from other teachers for strategies to help students succeed. “That’s all part of being a professional,” Reins said. Teachers also pay attention to what students already know, so they can build on that, Reins said. Cox qualifies for additional funding because it is a school serving many children from low-income households. This year, the priority is to use those funds for additional staff and for professional development for teachers, Reins said. Involving parents is important, too. “The teachers try to develop a strong school-home relationship,” she said. “They want their parents to become more involved in their children’s education.” The school soon will host a night for parents of kindergarten, firstand second-grade children to help parents learn how they can help their children with reading strategies. “Many parents don’t know how to help their children, and it’s through no fault of their own,” Reins said. While the school is committed to academic success, it still has a long way to go, Reins said. This award, however, is appreciated. “It’s encouraging,” Reins said. B.C. MANION/STAFFYvonne Reins has been named an Elite Principal in a new awards program that is based entirely on academic gains being made by students in Florida’s high-risk schools. www.LakerLutzNews.com January 22, 20148 PRINCIPAL, from page 1 FILE PHOTOKumquats can be used to make creamy pies.

It was definitely done in very good taste, and you could see the preparations that went into it. There was much work, and it certainly was appreciated by all. Chick and Annmarie Shackewyc were the hosts for this party, and were assisted by Brian Heidman and Sue Laurin, Rich and Chris Fulton, and Bill and Judy Ellsworth. Our sincere thanks go out to all of them. Billy Cole performed the DJ duties, and it was one song after another. He did an outstanding job. Billy also took requests and tried to accommodate all. There was country, pop, slow dances, and many songs from our generation that brought back pleasant memories. There also were line dances, and even a polka thrown in. The music had us singing, dancing and more. Every couple that attended brought a plate for the table and there ended up being a large variety of nibbles. In addition to this, a huge table was set up in the room with all types of spreads, crackers, and quite a bit more. In the course of the evening, names were pulled and the winners got an envelope with something “special” in it. So, in addition to the good time, several people went home with a little something to remember this grand event. Toward the end of the evening pictures were also taken, and then emailed to the specific person or couple. We had the television set on in the COURTESY OF TITA MAUKHelene and Marty Ruben s te i n were m ore than happy to r i ng i n the new year.

Horns were blaring and clickers were clicking as we welcomed in the new year in Grand Horizon style. On Jan. 2, we had our first social club of the year with our new social director, Barb Sullins. Approximately 20 to 25 people came to the community center to hear about the activities that they have planned for the coming year and to give our new director some support. Terry Gardner spoke about the upcoming show on Jan. 24, and another show that will be in February, while Andy Castonguay talked about the spaghetti dinner on Jan. 16. Several more items were on the agenda, and all in all, the meeting was informative. The following day proved to be very windy and quite brisk out, but we still had four shuffleboard players that braved the cold and played three games. It was fun, and you tolerated the cold more and more as the games progressed. The afternoon hours found several people at the community center playing Rummikub. This is a fun game and has you thinking as you would do in the game of mahjong. As in most of our games played at Grand Horizon, there is much laughter, kidding around and friendly banter along with much teasing. The following morning, on Jan. 4, we had our first breakfast of the new year. It was an excellent turnout of 85 to 90 people buying tickets, and more being served that included all the volunteers that made this breakfast such a success. This was the biggest that we ever had for breakfast. Attending this function were many of our neighbors and several guests. There were three couples that attended the egg n’ bag for the very first time, and they were recognized by Linda Tutin, along with the rest of the people in attendance. As in every breakfast, we had a drawing for a winner of a free egg n’ bag, and the lucky winner was me. Our breakfast consisted of eggs or Egg Beaters, along with potatoes, a biscuit, orange juice and coffee. There was also jam, butter and other condiments available. After our holiday break, many of the residents met at the community center on Jan. 6 for a lively game of dominoes. We always have a very good time at Mexican Train, and this day was no exception with friendly banter. On Jan. 10, we had our once-a-month lunch connoisseurs at The Lucky Dill. We had gone there before and we had a delightful time with great food, and we did once again. There were 42 people who attended, and there were so many items on the menu that people had a difficult time deciding what to order. They had a bakery with all sorts of goodies in it, and it was quite busy. The many cakes, cookies, pies, bagels, etc., were so inviting that you had to at least take a look. Our thanks go out to Bill and Donna Quinn, who were hosts for this luncheon. COURTESY OF MARTY RUBENSTEINB i ll and Karen Donlon toa s t i ng i n the new year at the Grand Hor i zon s ’ party.

www.LakerLutzNews.com January 22, 201411 AROUNDTHE PARKS By Sandra Gilbert-AbelRainbow VillageRainbow Village residents started out 2014 with meals that are to bring them good luck in the new year. In Pennsylvania, we have pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes. In the south, some have pork jaw and green eyed peas, or corn beef and cabbage for good luck. Whatever tradition you follow, it’s always been the way to bring in the new year. You don’t always get to hear about the nice things people do at Christmas time, especially businesses. Our Rainbow Village residents were very generous at Christmas and collected enough money to purchase 18 big bicycles for the needy children in Zephyrhills. Our manager, Sue Flynn, went to Walmart, and the assistant manager there, John, went above and beyond helping them select and purchase the 18 bikes. Thank you, John at Zephyrhills Walmart. Residents also collected many toys and games for the children, too.Denny Ellis entertained us at a Sunday night ice cream social with a lot of country songs, especially Merle Haggard songs. It was a very enjoyable evening. Jimmy Smith performed his gospel show at a recent Sunday night ice cream get-together. He did some of his Elvis gospel songs and some Vince Gill and other artists’ gospel songs. Jimmy has a beautiful voice and he closed out his show honoring the veterans. We were very privileged to have Rich Wilson for our first show of the season. He has performed in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and many other places. His unique brand of interactive comedy, along with his great vocals, was a perfect combination for Rainbow Village to love his performance. He sang many songs of yesteryear that most of us grew up on. We sure would welcome him back to our resort.We started off the state dinners with the Multi-State Dinner. These are the states not from Michigan, Canada and New England. Dick Elliott and his committee did a great job of planning this event. There were raffle prizes, and entertainment by Doug and Mary Sawyer, and Jan Peyton, singing country songs. It was very entertaining. The food was great, and there was so much of it. Thanks, Dick and your committee. Our next Rainbow Village show is the Steve Jeffris’ one-man band variety show, with guitar and vocals, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. On Feb. 19, Sarah Getto, a musician and songwriter, will perform. On March 5, our last show will feature Jimmy Smith Remembering the Legends and Gospel Show. These shows all start at 7 p.m., and the price of the tickets is $8 each. Call Sue Flynn at (813) 782-5075. So far the season has been great and we’re looking forward to a very eventful February.Let the entertainment begin at Rainbow Village COURTESY OF SANDRA GILBERT-ABELThe Multi-State Dinner committee, chaired by Dick Elliott, kicked off the park’s dinners with an event that included entertainment and raffles.

Dupuis was an avid quilter and loved her hobby. When she passed away on Feb. 18, 2013 under hospice care in Michigan, her daughter, Marilyn Rindle, knew she could not leave her mother’s last piece unfinished. Rindle gave the unfinished quilt to Donna Agle, a volunteer for Gulfside Regional Hospice and a member of the Leisure Day Quilters. Agle brought the pieces to the quilters, and they completed the hand-pieced quilt as a group project. The quilt, appraised at $2,300, is now being awarded in a drawing with all proceeds benefiting Gulfside Regional Hospice, at Rindle’s request. “Marilyn thinks the world of what hospice did for her family,” said Agle. She is 100 percent behind hospice and what they did for her mother while she was in her last days.” Tickets for the drawing are available now for a donation of $2 per single ticket, or $5 for three tickets. The drawing will be on Feb. 8 at 9 a.m., at the Leisure Days Quilt Show, 34533 Leisure Days Drive in Zephyrhills. Contestants do not need to be present to win. Tickets can be purchased at Gulfside’s administrative office, 6117 Trouble Creek Road in New Port Richey; Gulfside Center for Hospice Care, 5760 Dean Dairy Road in Zephyrhills; and each of Gulfside’s five thrift shop locations. For more information about the quilt or tickets, call Erin Cleary at (727) 845-5707, or email erin.cleary@grhospice.org.Quilters finish what Gertrude Dupuis started COURTESY OF GULFSIDE REGIONAL HOSPICEThe Le is ure Day s Qu i lter s f i n is hed th is qu i lt s tarted by Gertrude Dupu is before s he pa ss ed away under ho s p i ce care.

Almost too cold to think about our first ice cream social of the New Year. In the middle of those freezing days, the most amusing site at the local store was Ron and Heather Graham pushing a cart loaded to the brim with frozen ice cream. Boy, that was a topic of conversation for their fellow shoppers. Our chairperson, Heather, felt like the mailman — we must deliver in sleet or snow. As she noted, all we have to do now to get ready is slice it into squares. B rrrr. The ice cream social always is a popular event, and luckily the temperature rebounded enough for the 6 o’clock serving to bring more than 110 into the hall. For $1 you got a cupcake and ice cream. What a deal. Cold cash gave you an equally cold dessert, on an equally cold day. On Jan. 11 we all headed down to the hall again for our first park breakfast of the year. Jim Grant and his cracking (egg) team again plated their mouth-watering breakfasts of pancakes, eggs, sausage, toast and coffee for $3. All you had to do was bring your silverware, coffee mugs, and a big appetite. And, of course, three bucks. Last count was 104 happy eaters. Jim probably wished he had that many on KP duty. Not being deterred, he is planning the next one for the first weekend of February. He may have a special addition to his menu, so stay tuned. And, since we seem to overdo our feasting frenzies sometimes, on Sunday evening we finished the week with our first potluck dinner of the new year. Since our official capacity counter had the weekend off, association president Linda Jenkins defined the crowd, equally as large as we had this week. Cleanup crews as usual are many and anonymous, but still thanked for their service. There is no doubt that the high days of the winter season are upon us. Now the sports venues are heating up, the crafts, hall activities, bus tours, etc., are active. It will now be a few busy months. COURTESY OF RON GRAHAMSocializing before one of the many park activities at Happy Days are, from left, Jim Weaver, Steve Warren, Nancy Warren and Judy Weaver.
