Birthday 99 years in the making


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

In 1911 William Howard Taft was presi-
dent, there were only 46 states and a loaf of
bread cost 5 cents.That was the world Land
O' Lakes resident Rosalia Martinez was born
into.
Martinez was born in Santiago, Cuba on
Nov. 13,1911 and just celebrated her 99th
birthday. She left the island nation in 1961 to
escape Fidel Castro's Communist govern-
ment and moved to New Jersey. She has
since lived in Puerto Rico and Miami before
coming to central Pasco County last July.
"I really like it here," Martinez said.
"Miami was too big of a city. I like it here be-
cause there (are) less people and traffic.
Here I know most of the people I see."
Martinez is the third of seven siblings
born of Rosalia and Angel Martinez. Her par-
ents were originally fromAsturias, Spain. She
now lives with her niece, Lucille Fernandez.
"She has always been a self-sufficient
lady and even now she uses the money she
earned working her whole life to live on,"
said Fernandez, who also came from Cuba,
but in 1963."She worked as a secretary in


the big courthouse in Santiago and was
eventually the secretary for the president of
the courthouse. She got a college degree
from (Instituto Santiago Business) and
worked in the courthouse for 30 years."
Martinez said she was very happy in
Cuba and had everything she needed until
Castro took over.Then things became very
difficult and she decided to come to
America.
She had to forfeit all of her possessions
when she came to the United States, but
managed to smuggle $500 through hidden
in a purse with a false bottom. She said a
friend served three months in a Cuban jail
for trying to do the same thing.
"I love it in this country," Martinez said."It
is so much better than Cuba with the
Communists. There you can't do anything
now. Here you have freedom."
She moved to Puerto Rico to manage
one of her brother Ignacio Martinez's busi-
nesses. She came back to the mainland
because of high crime on the island. She
was once held at gunpoint while managing
the store. She moved to Miami and eventual-
ly retired.

Public welcome

to weigh in on Lutz

plan update

A community meeting has been sched-
uled for Nov. 18 to discuss proposed
revisions to the Lutz Community Plan.
The meeting will be from 6:30-8 p.m. at
the Lutz Community Center, 98 First Ave.,
N.W
The biggest change expected to be dis-
cussed involves a proposal to shift the
county's Urban ServicesArea line to remove
a 730-acre area, north of Curry Road, south
of Interstate 275 and west of the city of
Tampa city limits. By removing the area
from the urban services area, it would not
be able to be served by public water or
sewer lines, but would instead have to rely
on private wells and septic tanks.
The proposal has broad community ac-
ceptance, said Denise Layne, a community
activist who keeps a close eye on planning,
zoning and environmental issues.
"The community has embraced putting
it into the rural service area and making it
two homes per acre," Layne said.The previ-

Even in life's darkest

times, hope remains
By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
The death of someone we love is always
a painful loss - but healing can become
even more difficult if the loved died by sui-
cide.
Betsey Westuba understands that pain
because her brother, Don Falvey, took his
own life when he was 53.
"He had suffered from depression all of
his life,"Westuba said."He left a note saying
he couldn't take the pain any longer."
The loss of her brother put Westuba on a
new path. She received help to deal with
her grief and then went on to become a vol-
unteer at Suncoast Kid's Place Center for
Grieving Children and Families in Lutz. She
later was hired to be the center's suicide
prevention coordinator.

The aroma of roasted turkey wafting
through the house and a gathering of family
and friends - that's what most people con-
jure when they look ahead to Thanksgiving.
High unemployment and rampant fore-
closures, however, have dimmed that happy
image.
It's no surprise that people and organiza-


tions in the Central Pasco, Eastern Pasco and
Northern Hillsborough communities are
willing to help people in their time of need.
These generous souls help others all of the
time, especially during the holidays.
But this year, the Rotary Club ofWesley
Chapel is going beyond its usual delivery of
holiday meals to people in need.
This Thanksgiving the group will debut
its Turkey Gobble, an event that some hope

Two Pasco County athletes earn national honors


Hillsborough County group
furthers their training

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Heather Haynie and Josh Melendez regu-
larly compete for state and regional honors
with Hillsborough County's Paralympic
Sport Tampa Bay club, but the two just re-
ceived bigger recognition.
The athletes, who both live in East Pasco
County, were named to the first-ever High
SchoolAll-American Track and Field Team.
U.S. Paralympics, part of the U.S. Olympic
Committee, selects the team.
Andy Chasanoff has been the club's
sports coordinator since it started eight
years ago and coaches track and field.
"It's tremendously exciting," Chasanoff
said. "It shows you the tremendous amount
of effort and determination these athletes
put into their sport."

throw. (Photos by Becky Lehman)


Haynie, 19, graduated from Zephyrhills
High in the spring and won the first ever
Florida High School Athletic Association
Class I state shot put championship for dis-
abled athletes May 7 with a toss of 26 feet,
7.5 inches.Along with making the team, she
was also named the 2010 Girls FieldAthlete
of theYear for the discus and javelin throw
and shot put events.
"Feels good," Haynie said of earning the
award and making the team."It takes a lot of
work."
Haynie has been the shot put national
champion for physically disabled athletes in
her age group every year since she was in
fifth grade.
Melendez, 18, also just graduated, but
fromWiregrass Ranch High inWesley Chapel
and currently attends Pasco-Hernando
Community College. He lives in Odessa.
Melendez made the team for the javelin
and discus toss, shot put and long jump
events. He also competes in various running
and swimming events.
"I've competed with the club for seven
years and it's pretty cool to make the team,"
Melendez said."It shows how the club has
gotten bigger and better from years ago.
We've got a lot more athletes and the coach-
es have made us all better."
Melendez competed in cross country
while atWiregrass Ranch and his competi-
tive nature is obvious.
"I just love the spirit of competition,"
Melendez said."When I'm in a race I'm just
thinking finish strong and in a field event
I'm focusing on what I'm doing."
Haynie became disabled after a car acci-
dent when she was one week shy of her
fifth birthday. She lost most of her legs in the
crash. Melendez had a stroke while being
born.
"I've been working with disabled ath-
letes for about 30 years and I love doing it,"
Chasanoff said. "The three who made it
should be very proud of themselves be-

cause they are the best at what they do."
Tampa resident Nigel Diaz, 14, was the
third member of the club to make the team.
"They all practice two to three times a
week, but they need to do a lot on their
own to get to this level," Chasanoff said."I
heard about them making the team a couple
of weeks. Heather making the team didn't
surprise me because she's truly the best in
the country at what she does, but I was real-
ly happy for the other two."
Cathy Sellers, director of High
Performance Track and Field, said it was ex-
citing the name this first All-American squad.


"We wanted to recognize these excep-
tional high school athletes and their efforts
and let people know these are great, young
Paralympic athletes,' Sellers said.
Hillsborough County's club was also
named the top local sports club in the na-
tion earlier this year by U.S. Paralympics,
according to county Parks, Recreation and
Conservation Department spokesman John
Brill. It was selected from more than 100
local clubs throughout the country.
"It's a great recognition for the club,"
Chasanoff said."It clearly shows the kind of
effort our coaches and athletes put into it."

Changing of the guard


for Pasco County schools


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Election 2010 ushered in three new
members on the Pasco County School
Board, representing the first time in decades
that a majority of that board was
elected on a single ballot.
Cynthia Armstrong, Alison
Crumbley and Steve Luikart are
scheduled to be sworn in on
Tuesday, Nov. 16.
Armstrong assumes the
District 3 seat, vacated by Cathi
Martin. Crumbley fills the
District 4 seat,replacing Kathryn Cynthia A
Starkey Luikart assumes District
5, vacated by Frank Parker.
All three newly elected board
members said the district's antic-
ipated funding shortfall for next
year is the biggest challenge
they'll be facing as they take on
policy making and budget deci-
sions for a school system that has
more than 67,000 students,more Alison Cr
than 9,000 employees and an an-
nual budget topping $1 billion.
"We're looking at a $47 mil-
lion shortfall already for next
year," Crumbley said.
"The budgetary issues are
going to be a priority for the next
several years," Luikart predicted.
"There are going to be tough,
tough issues as far as cuts." Steve Lu
Voters' rejection of the pro-
posed quarter-mill tax for public schools
sent a clear message, Luikart said."We need
to live within our means."
While tough budget cuts will be neces-
sary, the district also needs to seek
additional revenue sources, Crumbley said."I
would like to look at more grant writing
done by the district," she said."I think there's
a huge opportunity."
Both Crumbley and Armstrong said
they're interested in putting additional em-
phasis on vocational and technology training
offered through the district's schools.

While cost cutting is a key focus, Luikart, a
32-year veteran of the county's public
schools,is not interested in pursuing privati-
zation of support services such as custodial
or food service as a way to achieve savings. If
there are ways to do things more efficiently,
the district's staff is capable of
learning those techniques, he said.
"When you have your (non-in-
structional) staff as part of the
school, they become part of the
community," Luikart said.
"Students are so much more
comfortable when the lady in the
front office knows their name,"
mtstrong said Luikart, who was an assistant
principal and a teacher before he
threw his hat into the ring for
school board.
Crumbley said she's not inter-
ested in pursuing privatization
either."There's a lot more to pri-
vatization than people realize,"
she said. "First and foremost
you're going to lose jobs."
mbley Luikart said his background
makes him aware of how deci-
sions made by the state
Legislature and at the school
board level can affect the daily
lives of teachers and students.
"We keep putting things on
teachers' plates, but we haven't
taken anything off in a long time,"
said Luikart, Florida Assistant
art Principal of the Year in 2001.
The school district also will
continue to deal with the challenges of
class-size restrictions,Armstrong said.Voters
rejected Amendment No. 8, which would
have relaxed those standards.
Armstrong said she hopes the Legislature
will be able to help the school district on
the funding front, but given the economic
climate, she is not overly optimistic.
School board members are elected to
four-year terms however, Crumbley was
elected to a two-year term to complete
Starkey's unexpired term. School board
members are paid $36,419 annually.

Son's memory endures at lacrosse tournament


The Wesley Chapel tourney is
expected to raise more than $80,000
for the Derek Pieper Memorial Fund

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

When Susan and Steve Wood watch
lacrosse teams from across the Southeast
play Nov. 20-21 in Wesley Chapel, the couple
will be thinking about Derek Pieper.
"He got into a little trouble, but really you
couldn't have asked for a better kid," said
Susan, Pieper's mother."He tutored his team-
mates, worked and got mostly As in his high
school and college classes he was taking at
(Pasco-Hernando Community College). His
faith was also very strong and now he is
watching us all from heaven."
Pieper and his friend, Raymond Veluz,
were murdered in July 2006.Tyree Jenkins
and Luc Pierre-Charles are both serving life
sentences for the deaths.
According to court testimony, Pieper had
previously bought drugs from Pierre-
Charles,his classmate at Wesley Chapel High
School, though it was unclear why he and
Veluz were killed that night.
Pieper was a center for the Warriors, a
lacrosse team in theWesley ChapelAthletic
Association (WCAA) forWesley Chapel stu-
dents.To remember him, the Derek Pieper
Memorial Cup was established in 2006 at
Wesley Chapel District Park, 7727 Boyette
Road inWesley Chapel.
Tom Fitzsimons, president of the WCAA,
said the event was also started to increase
lacrosse's popularity in Florida.
"It has become the biggest lacrosse tour-
nament in this part of the country each fall,"
said Fitzsimons, who was also Pieper's
coach."Four years ago when we started, we
had 19 teams play.Then we had 36 and 53,
and this year we have 89 teams signed up."


While the event encourages participa-
tion in the game Pieper loved, it has also
raised between $80,000 and $100,000 for
the Derek Pieper Memorial Fund, according
to Susan. Money from the trust goes to help
needy families buy lacrosse equipment and
to scholarships for the players.
Fitzsimons said
the event also fills the
area hotels and
pumps money into
the economy when
all the teams coming
from out of the area
to participate.
Pieper only started
Derek Pieper playing lacrosse
when he was in high
school. He and his family moved to Pasco
County from Minnesota in 2001. Despite his
late adoption of the sport, he was good
enough to receive several scholarship offers
to play in college.
"He wanted to stay close to home be-
cause of my health," said Steve, who is
Pieper's stepfather and raised him since age
3."I'm disabled and have a lot of problems
with my immune system and he wanted to
make sure he went to a school close by. He
was planning on going to Saint Leo
(University) even though bigger schools
were recruiting him."
Fitzsimons said Pieper was still learning
the game, but his athletic ability made him
one of the better players on the team. He
was looking forward to seeing what the cen-
ter could have done in his senior year.
"Derek was a heart and soul kid,"
Fitzsimons said. "He'd be the kid to pull
someone aside and give them a pick-me-up
talk if they were having a bad day. He wasn't
a hug in-your-face kind of presence, but if
you don't have a kid like that your team suf-
fers and we did the next year.There was a
physical and huge emotional hole."


The Blue Devils won the boys U15 division in the Derek Pieper Memorial Cup last year.

Spots in the tournament are filling up, so "Derek's legacy lives on in the event,"
any team interested in signing up should Susan said."It's wonderful that they have the
visit www.wclacrosse.org. event each year in his honor.They also retired
The Woods are looking for a full house at his number 11 after he died and that's just an-
the event. other way for people to remember Derek."

Killer bees stalk region


Local control company sees increase in their numbers

Nio Sanchez has seen an in-
crease in calls about Africanized
honeybee hives across Pasco and
Hillsborough counties during the
last several months.
He works AIM Termite and
Pest Control Specialists in
Wesley Chapel and said he does
not remember their numbers A
being so high in past years.
Sanchez says the Africanized
bees are very aggressive and
that he has received more calls
recently about them.
The bees, sometimes called
killer bees because of that aggres- |
sive behavior, first appeared in /
Florida in 2002, according to Jerry
Hayes, chief of the apiary section
of the Florida Department of Afric
Agriculture.They came from ships swa
from Central and South America bran
or Mexico through ports like the Univ
Port of Tampa.
"African bees were brought
to Brazil in 1957 because the
European honeybees that are used to
pollinate most of the crops in this
country didn't do well in that tropical
environment," Hayes said."What hap-
pened is the environmental blunder of
the century. Some of the queen
Africanized bees got out and they
spread across all of South and Central
America."
When the African bees cross breed
with European bees they became
Africanized. It is virtually impossible to


anized bees do not need solid structures to
rm. They sometimes use areas such as tree
iches or long leaves. (Photo courtesy of the
versity of Florida)

tell by sight if a bee is European or
Africanized.
James Ellis, assistant professors at the
University of Florida's department of en-
tomology, said if a European nest is
disturbed, generally 10 bees repel the in-
truder. More than 1,000 Africanized
ones will respond to the same attack.
"The Africanized bees are actually
smaller and have the same type of
venom as the European ones," Ellis said.
"They are a problem because they at-
tack in huge numbers and don't stop."
Ellis said they are especially a prob-


lem because vibrations caused by
things like tractors, lawnmowers
and power equipment agitate
them.
"Once a bee stings something,
they release a scent that causes the
others to attack,' Ellis said."The best
thing you can do is run and get in-
side a building because they will
chase you."
S Ellis said someone being stung
should cover their head and air-
ways because the bees will try and
get into the nose and down their
throat to continue stinging. Diving
in water does not work because
the bees will wait until the person
comes up for air.
Hayes said the best thing to do
Sto prevent hives from forming in
their neighborhood is remove any-
thing that could become their
home.
"Holes in sheds or other build-
ings should be sealed up," Hayes
said. "The Africanized bees will
-make a home out of any little bit of
protection, so removing anything
they can turn into a hive is important."
Hayes said any hive should be report-
ed to a pest control company for
eradication.
Hayes added only one person has
been killed by the Africanized bees in
Florida, which happened two years ago
in Kissimmee. Several dogs and small
farm animals have also been killed along
with a 900-pound horse in Hendry
County that had four pounds of bees

found in its stomach.TheAfricanized bees
flew into the horse's stomach to sting it.
"I sometimes have people ask why we
should get rid of them and I tell them it's a
public safety issue," Hayes said."There aren't
any benefits of having the Africanized bees
because our 275,000 colonies of European
bees controlled by beekeepers can pollinate
all of our crops."
Hayes said Florida crops that rely on bees
for pollination include strawberries, blueber-
ries, avocadoes and watermelons to name a
few.
In the early period of the spreading, the
Africanized bees' new range increased by
200-300 miles a year. Hayes said they first
reached Texas in 1990.They have since colo-
nized all the Southwestern United States
along with Florida.
Hayes said Africanized bees reproduce
much faster than European bees. Because of
that,Africanized bees form new colonies, or
swarms, about 15-16 times a year to a
European group's one to two.
"The Africanized bees come from a
place with no winter, so instead of produc-
ing a lot of honey they make more bees,"
Hayes said.


The spread of the Africanized variety
happened right around the time European
bees started to die out in the wild because
a parasitic mite, the varroa mite, was intro-
duced to NorthAmerica.The mites affect
Africanized bees as well, but Hayes said
they have a defensive mechanism to re-
duce its spread. Instead of breaking off and
forming two colonies, when a group is in-
fected, only the clean bees get the signal to
swarm.
"The wild population of European hon-
eybees are basically all gone in this country,"
Hayes said. "The Africanized bees moved
into the void left after the mites wiped out
the wild European bees.Any ones left were
forced out by the Africanized bees.The only
ones left are those of beekeepers."
Hayes emphasized the point that all bees
are not bad and without beekeepers,
Florida's many crops would not grow. He
said people should encourage and welcome
beekeepers because their European bees do
much more good than harm.

County reviews Wesley Chapel hospital


The planned Wesley Chapel Medical
Center is likely to take another step toward
completion on Nov. 18 when the Pasco

evaluates the facility's plans.
If approved, the hospital would receive
permits to be built at 2600 Bruce B. Downs

ent company of Florida Hospital
Zephyrhills, will build the facility on 51.5
acres of land.The facility is planned as an 80-
bed, 200,000-square-foot hospital and

received the extension as the result of a re-


of its kind in Wesley Chapel, was to be a
joint venture of AHS and University
Community Health, but the two companies
merged in September.
The hospital will have facilities for ob-
stetrics, pediatrics and general surgery,
women's and men's services, orthopedics,
sports medicine and other services.
Anyone can attend the public hearing at
1:30 p.m. Nov. 18 at the West Pasco
Government Center, 7530 Little Road in
New Port Richey. If approved, the county
commission would then vote on final action
at a later date.
"There are still a few hoops to jump
through," said Pasco commission chair-


cent review by the American College of

Tower's Wesley Chapel facility is located
at 2324 Oak Myrtle Lane.

Community Columnist
Some of you loyal
S readers noticed that I
missed a column a
few weeks ago.Thank
you for noticing, but
what really im-
pressed me was that
a few of you correct-
ly surmised that we
had gone to the "cabin" in north Georgia.
Yes, we were there for the leaf change
and to winterize and shut the place down
for the season.The leaves were gorgeous. I
think we hit it right as they were peaking.
We've been going to Suches, Ga. and the
surrounding area for years, since I was a pre-
teen.We built a place up there in the '70s
and we've always felt right at home. Maybe
that's because it seems like Florida resi-
dents, in general, and people from the
Tampa Bay area, specifically, out-number the
local residents from spring through autumn.
And, since I've been riding, I've been
taking my bike up there.The last few trips
I've taken my Harley. It started as a 1340 cc
beast and has been tweaked beyond that.
And, it's heavy. If it starts to lay down, I just
get out of the way and call for help to lift it
up off the ground.
So, for this trip, I got a new bike.A new
toy! I know. I needed another motorcycle
like I needed another hole in my head.And
many people have pointed out that, if I'm
not careful, I'll get both. But I NEEDED it.
You know, for the mountain roads.

friend of mine bought it when he went to
Alaska. He didn't buy it in Alaska. He ordered
it from here and took delivery in Alaska after
he and his wife flew up.They rode it around
our frontier state and then home.
It's just big enough for a road trip, but
also ready for a little "off-road" riding.
Nothing too serious, considering its size,
but mobile enough to handle the gravel
and slag roads.
Half the size and several hundred
pounds lighter, it was perfect. I was able to
go up (and down) our steep clay and grav-
el driveway comfortably. It handled the
curves and inclines well.And, some people
appreciate the quieter purr of its exhaust
as opposed to the loud rumbling "pota-
to...potato...potato" sound of the hog.
You may have noticed that when mo-
torcycle riders pass by other riders, they
give a little hand gesture, acknowledging
each other, kind of like boaters do.
Because the roads up there seem like they
were made for motorcycling, curves and
slopes through gorgeous scenery that just
invite riders,your hand tires out from wav-
ing. It's like when I go out the main
channel in Homosassa, there are so many
boaters that they just start giving a subtle
nod of their head as they pass, rather than
having to do what would amount to a"pa-
rade" wave for miles.
And, just like the seasonal residents and
tourists from Florida, it seems like most of
the other riders enjoying the mountain
roads also had Florida plates. But it's only
fair. They come down to our panhandle
beaches so much it's been dubbed the
"Redneck Riviera." I guess we can call their
area the "Cracker Alps."

How to have a healthy meal at Subway

Eating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we are heavier than
ever before. Samantha Taylor, owner of Pure Health Studios, offers tips on how to make
responsible choices while dining out at area restaurants.


By Samantha Taylor
Pure Health Studios

Subway is one of the biggest restaurant
chains that promotes how healthy their
food is and how you too can lose weight
just like Jared did if you eat their subs.
However, if you don't know how to
order their food, you could be frustrated
with your weight. It all comes down to
choices and knowledge of what you are
ordering.
Let's look at an example. If you have
one of their 6-inch subs loaded with fat
and extras like chips and a soda, that is
when you are asking for trouble. I honest-
ly used to order a foot-long with chips,
three cookies and a soda.Yes, I had a por-
tion control problem!
Their healthy marketing plan promotes
subs that have six grams of fat or less. Ha!
That's if it's "dry" with nothing on it except
veggies and meat. Most people do not
order it that way and they think they are
getting only six grams of fat but don't
know that adding the fattening toppings
changes that completely. For example, if
you get the 6-inch turkey breast sub but


add cheese, mayo and oil, the sandwich
jumps from 280 calories to 530 calories
and 32 grams of fat.That's the same calo-
ries and fat of a McDonald's Quarter
Pounder with cheese!
Ideally, you want to consume about 30-
50 grams of fat a day, not all in one meal.
Then if you add a bag a chips, soda and a
few cookies, that "healthy" meal balloons to
1,360 calories. I encourage you to go online
and look food up before you eat it so you
know what you are getting yourself into.
If you want the healthy meal, get the 6-
inch sub on whole wheat with only one
item that adds fat, choosing cheese, oil or
mayo instead of all three.That way you can
still get some fat on there but it won't be
too much. Drink water and save the chips
for a snack later.They even serve breakfast
now, and that seems to be a better time for
healthy ordering with multiple items
under 200 calories.
Pay attention to how many calories are
in what you are eating.

For more information, on healthy or-
dering, visit Samantha Taylor's blog at
''tr , thisisfit'coln.


Loading a sub with cheese, mayo and oil can quickly boost the calorie count.

Land O' Lakes resident speaks out


Dear Editor:
I feel I need to say something about the
TV commercial involving our Florida Law
Enforcement.While I realize that they re-
ceive government funding plus donations,
I do not believe they should be so in-
volved in the campaigning. For a chief of
police to say what he does in such a man-
ner is inappropriate and uncalled for. It
will certainly cause me thought before I
donate again.

I heard on the news last week where a
member of a particular school stated that
parents should be more involved with
their children and that if the parent did
not attend a parent/teachers meeting they


should be arrested. REALLY.What about a
working single mother who cannot get
time off work? With jobs so insecure now
people cannot just walk off jobs and go to
the schools. How about cooperation from
the schools? Schedule the meeting in the
evening when working mothers or fathers
can attend. It should not be at your con-
venience but at the parent who is
working. How scary is that - that someone
would even think of such a thing. How
about the student if that happened to his
mother; how about her job? They should
think before speaking.

THE ARTS


Tampa Bay artist goes worldwide
Tampa Bay artist Jason Dowd recently
premiered his artwork at Hong Kong's That
Gallery Art ShowA published photographer
and two-time award-winning artist, Dowd
faced his fears when he brought them to life
with his collection Dreams, Nightmares,
Fears, and Fantasy. The collection began
with inspiration from his father and from his
own nightmares."I liked photography be-
cause it is as real to me as my nightmares,"
Dowd says,"and I wanted to face my night-
mares to defeat them."
For the last six years, Dowd has also do-
nated his time and efforts to The American
Cancer Society, the Pinellas County Humane
Society,American Diabetes Foundation and
Big Brothers, Big Sisters.


To learn more about his artwork, visit

Fallen officers inspire book
Local author Brenda Darnley Martin has
released the third picture book in her
Tampa Bay based series promoting positive
life choices. The Treasure-Hunt Three and
Judge Mia's Decree was written for elemen-
tary age children and emphasizes the
inappropriateness of bullying and the im-
portance of getting help. The book is
dedicated to "the memory of Tampa Bay po-
lice officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis
and their brave comrades in law enforce-
ment, who serve to protect us all from
bullying." For more information, call Dawn
Hudson at (813) 842-7064.


Horrible Harry author meets readers
Tampa publicist Dawn Hudson visits with illustrator and author Frank Remkiewicz.
Remkiewicz was in Tampa for a book signing at The Book Swap in Carrollwood Nov. 6 dur-
ing his promotional tour for The Twelve Days of Christmas in Florida. His well-known works
include the Horrible Harry series, Froggy and Math Start. (Photo courtesy of Dawn Hudson)

Time change means check your water timers


By B.J. Jarvis
Pasco Horticulture Agent
Florida is back on daylight saving time
or did we just come off of it? I can never
keep that straight. Either way, the time
changed recently.After adjusting all clocks
in your house, car and office, don't forget
to do the same to irrigation controllers.
Residents are reminded to reset irriga-
tion timers to avoid a time-of-day water
use restriction violation.This is also an ex-
cellent time to run the system through
each of the zones to assure that the system
isn't watering the sidewalk, driveway or
side of the house. Local regulations allow
irrigation system testing during the day to
assure water used is going onto plants.
Ensure the battery backup on your con-
troller is operating properly to maintain
system programming during power inter-
ruptions. Most irrigation controllers have a
battery back up. Swap out the battery
given that Florida's weather is notorious
for power outages.A functioning battery
will retain all the settings for zones and
timing when the power goes out.
One of the most important aspects of
owning an irrigation system is maintaining
it for optimal performance and plant health.
Resetting your irrigation controller provides
a good opportunity to perform simple pre-
ventive maintenance.A few suggestions are:
* Straighten any leaning irrigation
heads:Tilted emitters don't provide even
water to thirsty plants.
* Test rain sensors for proper operation
and settings.Adjustments may be as simple
as cleaning out dead leaves and bird drop-
pings.
* Adjust sprinkler heads that have shift-
ed and are watering the street, driveway or
building.
* Assure sprinklers fully pop up above
taller grass and plants. Over time, it is easy

It is important to periodically check irrigation
heads, timers and automatic rain shut-off
devices. (Photo courtesy of the Southwest
Florida Water Management District)
for plants to grow over irrigation heads
preventing them from fully extending.
* Water sources may carry fine bits of
sand or other particles that can clog an irri-
gation head. Refer to the owner's manual for
how to unscrew the heads and clean inter-
nal filters.
During the cooler, darker fall and win-
ter months, irrigation run times should be
adjusted to water about every 10-14 days
because plants need less water. Don't
waste time, money or our precious water
supply with unnecessary watering. Over
watering plants will spread fungus that is
difficult to control.
The University of Florida has an amaz-
ing irrigation scheduler. Visit
http://fawn.ifas.ufl.edu/tools/urbanirriga-
tion/, enter your zip code and irrigation
system type and it will give you more in-
formation on irrigation scheduling than
you can imagine.

Extension Director for Pasco Cooperative
Extension Service, a free service of Pasco
County and the University ofFlorida, IFAS.

Conference helps companies cultivate business


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

How do you make your business grow?
That was the crux of the second annual
Economic Gardening Conference held last
week in Pasco County.
It turns out there are lots of resources
that companies may find useful in their
quest to expand, but the sources of help are
often scattered - and many business owners
may be unaware of them, speakers at the
conference said.
One source of help for businesses is
known as the GrowFL program. It targets
second-stage companies - which are de-
fined as growth companies that are beyond
the startup stage and are poised to expand.
The GrowFL program is administered by
the Florida Economic Gardening Institute at
the University of Central Florida and is fund-
ed by the Florida Legislature.
GrowFL offers presentations that bring
leaders of second-stage businesses into a
confidential setting where they can learn
from their peers.
It also offers CEO Roundtables, which
bring groups of entrepreneurs together for
collaborative problem-solving sessions on is-
sues important to their companies. These
sessions also are held in a confidential set-
ting and are led by a trained facilitator.
Besides offering technical help, GrowFL
also supports referral networks and events
that can lead to new business relationships
and clients.
The economic gardening approach is
practical, said John Hagen, president and ex-
ecutive director of the Pasco Economic
Development Council.
The traditional economic development
model was to identify employers who could
provide a substantial number of jobs and use
enticements to lure them to a community.
Hagen said it makes sense to concentrate


GrowFL at a glance

To qualify for the GrowFL program, com-
panies must meet these qualifications:
* Employ 10 to 100 people
* Have gross revenues ranging from $1
million to $50 million
* Be a company focused on growth, with
increases in the number of employees
or gross revenues during at least three
of the past five years
* Operate in one of these sectors: manu-
facturing; finance and insurance servic-
es; wholesale trade; information indus-
tries; professional, scientific and techni-
cal services; management services; and
administrative support services.

more resources on nurturing local business-
es to help them flourish.
Individually, they don't produce as many
jobs - but collectively, they can be a power-
ful source of economic development.
Instead of relying on a small number of
large employers, a community can develop
a broad base of small companies that are
thriving.
In essence, the GrowFL model asks:
"How do we take our current economic
base and extract as much growth as possi-
ble?" Hagen said.
"That is what we need," said Pasco
County Commissioner Pat Mulieri, who at-
tended the meeting."The entrepreneurial
spirit is what made our country great," she


said."For many years, we always wanted
the big guys."
Besides helping individual companies
to succeed, the community becomes
more attractive to companies that are
looking to relocate, Hagen said.
Economic activity begets economic
activity, he said.
"You want to go into a place where
things are happening," Hagen said. That
sends a message. It tells companies:"This
is a safe place to invest because other
people are doing it."
Steve Quello,founder and president of
CEO Nexus, facilitated a panel discussion
at the conference featuring three Pasco
CEOs who have been benefitted from
GrowFL.
The panelists were Don Morrison,
president and owner of Designer Golf
Company and Site Essentials; Anthony
Gaeto, CEO, president and co-founder of
Web Direct Brands and Peter Buczynsky,
president and co-founder of
PharmaWorks.
All three men, whose companies are
in Odessa, talked about using GrowFL
programs to help them leverage their re-
sources to find new markets or to make
better business decisions.
Morrison said he has gained insights
from discussions with other CEOs.
The person at the top of a company
often doesn't have anyone else inside the
company to bounce ideas off of, Morrison
said. In peer discussions it becomes clear
that top executives are often grappling with
the same kinds of issues,he said.
Company CEOs often can learn from
each other because they come from varied
industries and offer different perspectives,
Quello added.
Low-interest loans also are available for
those who qualify.To get the details on loan
requirements and restrictions, go to


www.BBIEcom or call (407) 649-4780.
GrowFL is just one of many resources
available to businesses, but company leaders
are often so immersed in the day-to-day chal-
lenges of their company that they don't
have time to explore sources of potential
help, speakers said.
In Orlando, there's a one-stop for entre-
preneurs needing help. It is called the
Disney Entrepreneur Center, and it brings to-
gether myriad resources to help businesses.
Closer to home, the PEDC is planning a
virtual network to tie various resources to-
gether to help business owners seeking
assistance.
Members of the website's core group are
the five local chambers of commerce,
SCORE, the Pasco-Hernando Work Force
Board, the Small Business Development
Center, the Pasco Library System and the
PEDC.
That's only the beginning, though.
Hagen wants the Pasco Enterprise
Network to be open-ended.
The idea is that anyone seeking help
could open any door and be led to the right
resource, Hagen said.
"There are a lot of resources out there
that tend to operate independently," Hagen
said."We want to create a business ecosys-
tem."
Hagen said he expects the website to be
up and running within 90 days.

HOPE, from page 1
The center and the Bereavement
Coalition ofTampa Bay are co-hosting a con-
ference at Van Dyke Church in Lutz aimed at
helping people who are coping with the
loss of a loved one who died by suicide.
The conference will be held simultane-
ously at 250 sites around the world. The
local event is planned for 9:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. on Nov. 20 at Van Dyke Church, 17030
Lakeshore Road. It includes a 90-minute
broadcast by the American Foundation for
Suicide Prevention.
National Survivors of Suicide Day was
created by the U.S. Senate in 1999 through
the efforts of Sen. Harry Reid, of Nevada,
who lost his father to suicide.
The event provides an opportunity for
members of the survivor community to
gather for support, healing and information.
Pasco and Hillsborough counties are not
immune from the incidence of deaths by
suicide. Last year, 86 people took their own
lives in Pasco County and 199 did so in
Hillsborough County.
While this conference is geared to peo-
ple who have lost someone to suicide -
help is available beyond the conference not
only for people grappling with this kind of
loss, but also for people who are contem-
plating suicide, said Cheryl Jackson, program
director for Suncoast Kid's Place.
There is hope and there is help,Westuba
said.
Suicide is a preventable cause of death,
Jackson said.
Many issues can contribute to a person's
decision to take his or her own life,Westuba
said. "People need to be educated."
Statistics show that more than 90 per-
cent of suicide victims have a significant
psychiatric illness at the time of their death
- which often had been undiagnosed, un-
treated or both, according to information
compiled by the American Foundation for
Suicide Prevention.

abuse are both present, the risk for suicide
greatly increases, especially among adoles-
cents and young adults, the foundation
says.
The media can play an important role
in informing the public about the warn-
ing signs of suicide, trends in suicide
rates and recent treatment advances, but
media reports can also contribute to an
increase in suicide deaths, the founda-
tion reports.
Research has found an increase in sui-
cide by readers or viewers when the
number of stories about individual sui-
cides increases, a particular death is
reported at length or in many stories, the
story of an individual death is placed on
the front page or at the beginning of a
broadcast, or the headlines about a specif-
ic suicide death are dramatic, the
foundation reports.
Reporting of a particular suicide method
by the media also can encourage vulnerable
individuals to imitate it, according to the
foundation. Clinicians believe that risk is
even greater if a detailed description of the
method is reported.

THANKSGIVING, from page 1
will become an annual tradition.
Dan Byrne,Joanne Showalter and Poky
Pocorobba are the key organizers of the
event that will serve turkey dinners with all
of the fixin's from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
Thanksgiving at the Dairy Queen at 27328
SR 54 inWesley Chapel.The meals will be
served until they run out.To make a reserva-
tion for a meal, call (813) 991-9767.
The dinners will be served to people
who are hungry, homeless and in need,
Byrne said.
After they finish their meal, diners will be
able to top it off with a nice Pumpkin Pie
Blizzard, said Byrne, who owns the Dairy
Queen.
Event organizers hope to create a warm
and welcoming ambience, Byrne said."We
are going to treat this with as much dignity
as we can."
About two dozen members of the Rotary
Club of Wesley Chapel are expected to vol-
unteer that day, serving dinners paid for by
the club and other contributors and pre-
pared by Metropolitan Ministries.
Sweetbay Supermarket has volunteered
to keep the dinners warm until they are
served, Byrne said.
Club members also will deliver some
meals to disabled people or shut-ins, who
are unable to attend the event, Byrne added.
About 20 businesses have banded togeth-
er to support the Turkey Gobble, said
Showalter, who is customer service manager
at Heritage Ford.
Other donations have come from individ-
ual Rotary Club members and from patrons
at the Dairy Queen, who have dropped
coins or dollar bills into a collection jar.
The event is needed, particularly in this
tough economy - which has people home-
less and has forced children to go hungry,


Byrne and Showalter said.
"It's just sad," Showalter said.
The Rotary Club ofWesley Chapel is just
one example of the community's big heart.
Harvester United Methodist Church, 2432
Collier Parkway in Land O' Lakes, held a
food drive to help families in need, said
Pastor Sam Maihack.
"As a church, we believe we're on earth
as God's children, to help people who are in
need," Maihack said. "You have got to start
with where people are at - we want them
to experience God's love."
In Zephyrhills and a portion of Dade
City, the people receiving dinners from
Meals on Wheels East Pasco, Inc.,will be re-
ceiving a turkey dinner with all the fixin's.
Well, almost all of the fixin's said Ann
Babbitt, administrative assistant for the or-
ganization."The only thing they don't get is
whipped cream on the pie. That doesn't
hold up well," she said.The cost of the din-
ners is being covered by the Daybreak
Rotary Club of Zephryhills.
The Lutz Land O' Lakes Woman's Club
made donations to Christian Social Services
in Land O' Lakes to help pay for some
Thanksgiving baskets, said Marilyn
Wannamaker, a woman's club member.
Christian Social Services will distribute
about 100 food baskets to families in need,
said Jacquie Petet, executive director.The or-
ganization buys the food baskets for $30
each from Share Food Network. Each basket
has a frozen turkey, fresh vegetables and
canned foods.
The social service organization is glad to
help brighten Thanksgiving, but the needs go
far beyond annual holiday baskets, Petet said.
The Thanksgiving basket will provide a
meal and some leftovers, Petet observed.
"The need is there seven days of the
week," Petet said.

Every Part of Your Being Knows...


I knew I needed help to change - Do you?


"I feel so different than I did two
years ago. My body now craves
healthy food instead of sweets and
junk food. I've maintained my weight
loss for 30 months and it's become
pretty easy because I am in control of
myself and like the person I've
become. I USED to go shopping to
look for clothes that would make me
look good. But guess what - nothing
really did. I had to change my body to
do that.
I am in the BEST shape of my life.
Your health affects your moods, emo-
tions, energy. As women, we look after
everyone else in our lives before we
look after ourselves. But if you don't
also take care of yourself, you won't
have much left over to give to others.
And you won't feel good about your-
self physically or emotionally.
When I finally called Samantha in
March of 2007, it was after reading
her articles in the paper for many
years. I was in the worst shape of my


life physically and it was affecting me
on many levels - my health, mentally,
emotionally and in my relationships. I
tried to lose weight MANY times but
I could never keep the pounds off. I
would always go back to my old way
of eating and the weight would come
back on - and more.
Calling Samantha was the best
decision I've ever made. I needed help
to change. Samantha told me if I put
time and effort in her plan, it would
work.
After seven months of following
Samatha's program,
I had lost 55 lbs and ,t s.l
7 sizes and have


kept it off
almost 3 years!
Thanks
Samantha!"

Dade City restaurant wants patrons to hang out and enjoy diverse foods


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
Opening a restaurant has
always been Miguel Aban's
dream.
His desire to create tasty
dishes began with growing
up around his mother's cook-
ing and the cooking of his -
friends' moms,he said.
As he grew up in New
York, he developed his culi-
nary abilities by working at
Beth Israel Medical Center, De Limin Cal
where he learned to prepare patrons to er
Kosher foods and he later their friends
worked as a chef for Filk
International in Greenwich, Conn.
Miguel loves to prepare and share good
food and used his cooking skills to woo his
wife, Marie.
Now, he hopes the foods he prepares
will entice people to visit the Dade City
restaurant he and Marie opened in July.
Called De Limin Cafe, the restaurant at
14016 7th St. is unpretentious in appear-
ance and openhearted in nature.
The owners explain the vibe they're try-
ing to create on their menu's colorful cover:
"The word "lime" as a verb means to hang
out with friends, pass the time and talk."
All are welcome, all kinds of foods are
served and no one will pressure patrons to
eat quickly and leave, Miguel and Marie said.
They pride themselves on offering
French Creole, West Indian, American,
Caribbean, Italian and other foods.
Appetizers, for example, include


f6 owners Miguel and Marie Aban want their
ijoy their food and to feel free to hang out with
at their restaurant. (Photos by B.C. Manion)

pholourie balls,West Indian saltfish cake, a
Caribbean and American sampler and
Jamaican beef patty.
Wraps and sandwiches include a jerk
chicken wrap, a blackened fish sandwich, a
veggie wrap or a chicken and broccoli
wrap.
Entrees,labeled as the "main feast" on the
menu, come with rice, fried plantains, veg-
etables and a house salad. Choices include
curry chicken, griot, curry lamb and stew
fish.
The restaurant also serves Kosher red
snapper, lamb and chicken, Miguel said.
Its pasta dishes are lasagna,fettuccini and
penne - all featuring homemade noodles
and special sauces.
One of the restaurant's most popular
dishes is intended to be shared by two. It's
called the"Melting Pot,' and features shrimp,
scallops, lobster, black clams and chicken -


cooked in coconut milk and
curry sauce. ...:
Natalie Merten, who lives
in Ridge Manor, came to the
restaurant recently because
her daughter, son-in-law and
grandson had eaten there
and enjoyed it.
She brought a couple of
friends fromAlabama along
with her.
Doris Piland, of
Rogersville, Ala., was im-
pressed by the array of food
choices."It's a great menu. It's
got a great variety," she said.
Opening a restaurant is
always a risky proposition,
especially during a reces- De Limin Cafe
sion, but the opportunity West Indian,,
arose and the couple decid- at its blackened
ed to go for it.
They repainted the restaurant's walls, put
up some new curtains and reupholstered
the chairs.
And, they put together a menu featuring
a wide selection of choices.
But they said they are able to prepare a
much broader array of foods. If someone re-
quires vegetarian dishes or needs gluten-free
foods, they can accommodate those needs,
they said.
Both owners love good food and want
patrons to leave their restaurant feeling satis-
fied.
They hope that freshly prepared foods,
generous portions, reasonable prices and a
friendly atmosphere will help them build a
following.


6 has a diverse menu including French Creole,
American and Caribbean foods. Here's a look
3d fish sandwich with sweet potato fries.

The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m.
until the last patron leaves on Friday and
Saturday.
If patrons come in when they're getting
ready to close, they'll stay open to serve
them, Marie said.
They want their restaurant to have a wel-
coming ambience.
"We open our restaurant to anyone.
Come formal or come casual. Come anyway
you want," Miguel said.
"We give everybody a chance," Marie
said."We believe in all traditions."

rant or its menu call (352) 245-4350 or go to

High school football playoff preview


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

After the 10 game football season, the
best teams have risen to the top of their dis-
tricts and will hit the field Friday, Nov. 19 to
extend their playoff dreams. Local schools
qualifying for the postseason include
Wiregrass Ranch, Pasco and Land O' Lakes.


wiregrass Hancn coacn Jeremy bnobe.


WIREGRASS RANCH
The Bulls (6-4) made the playoffs for the
first time in the school's five-year history.
They reached the postseason by going 4-0
in Class 4A, District 6 and also finished with
a winning record for the first time.
"We had a feeling we'd make the playoffs
at the end of the season," said Bulls coach
Jeremy Shobe. "We were able to respond
from some early losses and it's a great feel-
ing to be a part of the history of this
school."
Wiregrass Ranch ended the regular sea-
son winning four of its last five games,
dropping their last contest to Pasco High 58-
13.
Wiregrass Ranch faces Springstead High
in the playoff contest, the first meeting be-
tween the squads. The Eagles finished the
regular season 5-5.
The Bulls offense got off to a slow start
this season and averaged just more than 14
points per game through their first four con-
tests. That sluggish beginning was likely
because Wiregrass Ranch returned just one
starting offensive lineman, but the unit start-
ing clicking halfway through the year.
"We lost 23 seniors from last year and we
were able to rebound from that," Shobe said.
"I think it's a testament to the work the kids
put in. When you get all around commit-
ment you can lose that number of good
players and still come back and make the
playoffs."
The leader of the offensive attack is quar-
terback James Tringali, who had 1,270
passing yards and 11 touchdowns in the
regular season with another 231 rushing
yards and two more scores.
On defense the Bulls recorded their first
shutout this year against Ridgewood High.
They held opponents to less than 10 points
in five of their games.
Springstead scored just three more
points than it gave up this year. Despite the
team's nickname, the Eagles get most of
their offense from the ground, averaging
more than 205 rushing yards per contest.

PASCO
The Pirates (10-0) won the 3A-7 champi-
onship this year, their fourth straight district
title. Pasco has a combined record of 34-6 in
the regular season since coach Tom
McHugh took over the program four years
ago.
"That's all because of the kids," McHugh
said."They've bought into our program and
work hard to get better.They're the reason
we've been able to win four straight district
titles."
Pasco entered the regular season as the
defending district champion, but lost last
year's starting quarterback D.J. Lower to
graduation along with eight other players
who received a scholarship to play colle-
giately.
Quarterback Jacob Guy stepped into that
void and immediately fit into the Pirates
spread offense. Pasco scored 450 points dur-
ing the regular season, 94 more than last
year. They also averaged 411.8 yards per
game to last year's 308.4. Guy had 1,827
passing yards and 23 touchdowns and three
rushing scores in the regular season.
The Pirates defense is lead by a group of
very fast defensive backs that fly to the ball
and create turnovers. Mike Clower, Trey
Dudley-Giles and CornellWilson led the unit
with three interceptions apiece, but six oth-
ers had one. Hard-hitting safety Jamie Byrd
forced three fumbles while leading the team
with 63 tackles.
Pasco will play Lakewood High (6-4) at
home in Dade City.The Pirates were elimi-
nated at home by the Spartans 36-25 in the
first round of the playoffs last year.


LAND O' LAKES
The Gators (9-1) have reached the play-
offs for the 14th straight time, this season as
the 3A-7 runner-up.
That streak is the longest in Pasco
County history, but if the Gators are to ad-
vance they will have to do so without coach
Matt Kitchie and defensive coordinator
Jason Hatcher, who were indefinitely sus-
pended Nov. 12 for undisclosed reasons.
Kitchie took over the program last season
and has a 17-3 record since then.
Offensive line coach Patrick Corcoran
was been named the interim coach for the
rest of the season Nov. 12, the same day the
Gators won their last regular season game
42-10 against Hudson High. Corcoran has
never been a head coach before and is in his
first season as an assistant. He played foot-
ball at the University of Colorado.
"Our principal Ric Mellin came to me
and asked me to take over and now we're
just trying to get some wins in the playoffs,"
Corcoran said.
Senior quarterback StephenWeatherford
has been the leader of Land O' Lakes' of-
fense recording a county-leading 2,136
passing yards and 30 touchdowns in the
regular season, but he was not present at
the Hudson game. Kitchie said the decision
to sit Weatherford was made before his sus-
pension to prevent him from injury in the
finale. Corcoran would not comment as to
Weatherford's availability for the playoffs.
Junior Ryan Bird took over in that last
game and threw for 252 yards and three
touchdowns.
"Basically we didn't want to overwhelm

him with the complex offense we have here
at Land O' Lakes," Corcoran said."Basically
just build up his confidence ... He passed
the test."
On defense, the Gators blitz the quarter-
back from the start of each contest,
averaging 7.7 per game. Linebackers
Jackson Cannon and ShadowWilliams had
13 and 10.5 sacks respectively, followed by
defensive end Spencer Michelson's 8.5.
Land O' Lakes plays Jefferson High (10-
0), a rematch from last year's playoffs.The
Dragons won that game last year 43-22, but
the Gators did beat them in the University
of South Florida's 7-on-7 summer tourna-
ment with Bird under center.Weatherford
was out with a broken hand.
"It's a lot different, but it means we can
run with them," Bird said."It does give us a
little confidence, but we still know they
have a really good team."

Central Pasco cross country runners come up large


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Class 3A, Region 2 cross coun-
try meet at Jay B. Starkey Park Nov. 13
was a good showing for central Pasco
County runners.
The Land O' Lakes High boys team
came in second place after finishing in
the same position in districts.
"Our goal was to finish with less
than 120 points and we had 117,"
said Gators 17-year boys coach Kris
Keppel. "We're really happy with
that. We were a little short of our
team time. Overall finishing second
is where we've been all year against
these teams, so it's steady as she
goes going into states.We're primed
and ready to go for states and I'm
hoping the kids who didn't run a
personal best saved themselves for
that."
The leader of that Gators squad
was senior Hendrix Lafontant, who fin-
ished in 16 minutes and 35 seconds,
good enough for 13th place.
"We all expected to get to states,
but it's still very special to hear it,"
Lafontant said."Everyone is putting in
the hard work and we push each ir
other. You can see the times going the
down and I'm not surprised because
everyone works so hard."
Wiregrass Ranch High teams won both
the girls and boys championships at the
race.The girls finished with 65 points, 61
better than second place King High, while
the boys had 40 points.
"Coming in we knew if we performed
like we know we can we'd be at the top,"
said Bulls girls coach Don Howard."I wasn't
surprised that they won. I'm happy with
their point total, but I'm not really happy
with their times.That gives us some motiva-
tion in preparing for states."
The boys had four runners finish in the
top 15 and were led by senior Josh Reilly's
time of 16:08.
"We knew we had a chance to post a lot
of good times and we showed what we can
do with four guys finishing in the top 15,"
Reilly said."It feels great to know we're cre-
ating such a legacy for Wiregrass Ranch in
cross country."
Reilly was followed by Ryan Pulsifer's
16:17 (sixth place), Ermas Bireda's 16:33
(10th) and Samuel Hippely 16:35 (12th).
The girls top runner was sophomore
Nikita Shah, who finished in 19:51.
Teammates Ariel Grey (12th place) and
Marissa Tomei (13th) had times of 20:00 and
20:10 respectively.

Land O' Lakes senior run-
ner Hendrix Lafontant and
the Gators advanced to
states as a team.


Sickles senior runner
Jonathon Bermudez finished
in 15th place and advanced
to states individually.


Nikita Shah's time of 19:51
was 10th fastest in region-
als and helped the lady
Bulls win the title.


The girls team had seven runners in
regionals, but someone else has been
with the Bulls all year. Lexi Ulrich
would have been a junior on the team
this season, but she and her family
were killed in a plane crash earlier this
year. To remember her, the team kept
her jersey from last year exactly how
Ulrich left it.
"We've put this up at every meet,"
Howard said."The kids have dedicated
the year to her. We get a number for
her at all the meets because she really
is still running with all of us."
Central Pasco was also represented
by the Sunlake High boys. The
Seahawks did not advance as a team,
but junior Kenny Fessel did by finish-
ing in fifth place.
"It was exciting when I heard my
name called in the top 15," Fessel said,
who reached states for the third time
with a new personal best of 16:12."I
just went out there and ran my race ...
I'm going to try to post a good time for
- Sunlake in states."
Only the top 15 runners advance,
along with those on the six best teams.
The last runner to qualify for the boys
was Sickles High senior Jonathon
Bermudez. He ran a personal best of
16:40.
"Going into this race my time was
ranked 24th, but I had a really good week in
practice and was ready to go," said
Bermudez, who reached states with the
Gryphons team as a sophomore."I knew it
was going to be really close. I did the best I
could and it was good enough."
The Gators boys have reached states in
each of Lafontant's first three seasons and
he is looking to leave everything on the
course this year in states.
"I just want to go all out," Lafontant said
of his plans for states."I don't want to have
anything left at the end. Really I just want to
pass out at the end of the race so I know I
gave it my all."
States are at Little Everglades Ranch in
Dade City Nov. 20. The 3A girls meet is at
9:30 a.m., while the boys will take off at
10:20 a.m.

Warriors advance to states
The Steinbrenner High boys and girls
cross country teams both qualified for the
2A state meet after finishing fourth and fifth
respectively in the 2A-3 regional event.The
girls scored 141 points, while the boys had
116. Both squads' performances qualify
them for the state meet Nov. 20 in Dade
City. They are only the second and third
Warriors teams to advance to a state final.


First district championship for Academy at the Lakes


Girls golf claims title, boys
golf sends first to regionals

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

A year ago Academy at the Lakes did not
have enough girls golfers to field a team for
the district tournament and this season the
squad put the first title in the school's tro-
phy case.
"The boys have had a team for a couple
years and it was great to have a girls team
that could compete in the (Florida High
SchoolAthletic Association) district tourna-
ment this year," said Kevin Crowley, who
coaches the boys and girls teams."It was a
very exciting year for us."
Mark Heller, head of the school, said one
week into the season it did not look like
they would have four girls golfers, the mini-
mum to compete in districts.
"That's one of the things I'm very proud
of," Heller said."Ellen (Crowley) had been
competing with the boys for the last couple
years because she loves golf. She knew her

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800


friend Alex (Aucoin) wanted to have a soc-
cer team, so they made a deal to play golf
and soccer.That meant we had enough kids
for a girls golf and girls soccer team for the
first time.That's working together and I'm
proud of them for doing that."
The academy started competing in
FHSAA events in 2007.That year Ellen and
former Wildcat Alexandra Irish were the
only two girls golfers. Irish won the individ-
ual district championship and went on to
compete in the state tournament.
"It was fun golfing before and with the
boys team, but it's nice to have a girls team
to be a part of," Ellen said, who is a junior
and Kevin's daughter. "There's something
about being part of a team that is exciting."
Aucoin, a senior, said golf was not her fa-
vorite sport entering the year, but she is
very glad she gave it a try.
"Really, in the beginning, it was just so I
could have a soccer team to play on,"Aucoin
said."I was really proud and a little surprised
we won the district. It's great to have the
first team championship in school history."
The youngest player on the team is

By Derek Highley
Golf Columnist
Frustrated with
the current status of
your golf game? Have
you been reading
golf instruction arti-
cles,watching videos,
heading to the range
to practice and still
not seeing any re-
sults? Believe it or not, hitting more golf
balls or taking more lessons is not always
the best thing.
There are situations where what is
holding back your progress is not a lack of
knowledge, but a physical limitation. Right
around 1997 when Tiger Woods began
golfing, we started seeing a shift in the
view of the importance of physical fitness.
Fitness prior to Tiger was more or less in
the background, a stark difference to
where we are today. I'm not talking about
heading to the gym and throwing a bunch
of heavy weights around or running five
miles a day. I'm talking about eliminating
actual physical limitations in flexibility, mo-
bility and stability.The studies and research
that is being done today, most notably at
the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI),
prove there is direct correlation between
physical limitations and swing faults.
Don't go getting too stressed about
this. I'm not saying there is no hope. I'm
saying with a little bit of knowledge and a
few simple exercises you may be able to
find improvements in your game you
never thought possible. Being able to
move your body properly throughout the
golf swing will not only improve your play,
but also makes playing easier.With proper
movement you can begin to eliminate
compensations you've been forced into
over the years.The added bonus is elimi-


DISTRICT, from page 23
Paulina Agudelo, a sophomore, who has
learned a lot from her coach.
"He's taught me how to play,"Agudelo
said."He made us all better and I think we
can be even better next year with his coach-
ing."
Anna Fornelli, who competed last year
with Ellen, thinks part of the improvement
could come from increased interest and par-
ticipation at the school.
"Alex is graduating and we'll need a good
player to replace her, but there've been a lot
of people talking about the team," Fornelli
said."I think we'll have more than four play-
ers next year."
The girls team won the Class 1A, District
9 title at their home course of Plantation
Palms Golf Club, 23253 Plantation Palms
Blvd. in Land O' Lakes, with a score of 488.
Assistant Peggy Crowley thanked the course
for allowing both the girls and boys teams
to practice there all year.
Ellen shot an 86 at districts, tied for the
second best score. Fornelli came in with an
88, fourth best, while Agudelo (11th) and
Aucoin (12th) had a 146 and 168 repetitive-
ly.
"I wasn't surprised that they won," Heller
said. "I've seen them put in the time and ef-
fort and it shows what hard work can do."
The Wildcats did not advance in the 1A,
Region 3 tournament, but Fornelli and Ellen
posted scores of 86 and 93 respectively.
Also doing new things for the Wildcats
this year is senior Mike Davidson. He is the
first boys golfer at the academy to advance
individually to regionals. He shot 98 in the
1A-9 tournament.
"I was proud to get to regionals,"
Davidson said."It was great to do it my sen-
ior year."
The season ended in regionals for both
Davidson and the girls team, but the
achievements wound up better than their
expectations.

"We just wanted to be able to play in dis-
tricts this year when we started," Ellen said.
"Then we wanted to make it to regionals
and winning the title was just icing on the
cake."

nating physical restrictions not only helps
your golf game, but also improves overall
quality of day-to-day life.
You start by getting a golf specific fit-
ness screen that will identify your
limitations.The TPI screening process in-
volves a dozen tests designed to measure
overall mobility and stability in the joints
and other regions of your body. Limitations
seen in various areas can be directly attrib-
uted to common swing faults. As an
example, the toe touch test when failed
can indicate the possibility of several phys-
icals flaws including limited hamstring or
lower back flexibility and hip joint mobili-
ty.These limits show up in your golf swing
as swing faults like loss of posture and
early extension.
These two common swing faults ap-
pear with approximately 65 percent of
amateur golfers and contribute to inconsis-
tency and poor ball striking.
In studies with the PGA Tour, more
than 80 percent of the professionals tested
can touch their toes, compared to 43 per-
cent of amateurs who fail the test. If you
are among the 43 percent it's actually nice
to know that the problems in your swing
can be fixed with a few exercises as op-
posed to hours on the driving range.
If you are serious about improving your
golf game, getting a golf fitness screen is a
step in the right direction. Locally, you can
get a screening at Body Balance for
Performance, 14506 North Florida Ave.
From there you can learn how to make a
training program to fix your faults.

New technology promises better care

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com


Precision is key to a successful surgery
and Pasco Regional Medical Center (PRMC)
in Dade City now has a way to increase the
exactness of all procedures.
PRMC's chief of surgery Dr. Pandurangan
Krishnaraj completed the first procedure, a
gallbladder removal, in central and east
Pasco County using robotic surgery Nov. 3.
The system is called daVinci Si.
"The daVinci Si surgical system is a tech-
nologically advanced robotic surgery system
which allows skilled surgeons the ability to
perform intricate surgeries that provide pa-
tients the best possible surgical outcomes
and fastest recovery times," Krishnaraj said.
"This is achieved be-
cause with the da
Vinci we can make
smaller incisions and
see magnified real-
time imagery of the
surgery site in high-
definition detail."
Hospital CEO
Gary Lang said of the Dr. Krishnaraj
new system,"This is Pandurangan
another step in our
continuing effort to
offer high-end tech-
nology that enhances
our commitment to
quality and conven-
ience."
Doctors like
Krishnaraj perform Dr. Sara Perez
surgeries several feet
away from the patient with a computer.
From there they see magnified pictures in
high definition images and control robotic
arms to make precise surgical maneuvers.
The system allows surgeons to maintain
full control of every surgical movement
throughout the procedure.This allows the
surgeon to use his or her skills while being


Pasco Regional personnel using the
new technology system. (Photo cour-
tesy of Katie Bryant)

The system creates several
other benefits for patients,
which include:
* Smaller incisions, which allow for faster
healing and little to no scarring
* Shortened hospital stay or possibly
outpatient surgery
* Minimal blood loss and less chance a
blood transfusion will be needed
* Less pain after surgery



enhanced by the system, which also has 1
million automated safety checks per second
to increase patient safety.
Surgeons already have performed a vari-
ety of procedures, including prostate
removal, colorectal surgery and a hysterecto-
my.
Dr. Sara Perez also recently performed
her first robotic procedure, an ovary re-
moval.
"This allows me as a surgeon to work
with each of my patients to select the surgi-
cal approach that is best for that individual
patient and provides the best possible surgi-
cal outcome and the quickest recovery,"
Perez said.

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business. "
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA


I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I
bought it. We were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP
said they would try to make things right. But how was an energy company
going to help our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line.Instead, they
asked us if we could serve food to the workers,engineers, scientists, and local
residents they had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock.
And we weren't the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a
lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and down the Gulf open
and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's
open six days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think
it's a good time to come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just
one request, please think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still
here and while it's been tough, we are still cooking. And we are just one of
the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when you come down. So
don't wait. We're looking forward to seeing you.
