Jonathon Bermudez helps teammate go extra mile


KIDS ARE HEROES
St. Joseph's Children's Hospital received
91 nominations for this year's Kids are
Heroes campaign. Of those selected, a
few are from northwestern Hillsborough
County, including Jonathon Bermudez
and Colton Sheppard (Meet Colton,
page 16). Since 1996, the program has
honored more than 1,000 kids ages 5-18
from across Tampa Bay. Winners will be
announced this December.

Last spring, Sickles High student Jonathon
Bermudez was running with a new track
teammate,Abdin Fator, when he noticed the
freshman had large holes in his shoes.What
he did next helped earn him a nomination.
Bermudez took Fator to a local sporting
goods store and bought him new running
shoes with his birthday money.
"I had just turned 17 and had some
money from that," said Bermudez, a senior.
"I've always valued personal enjoyment
over money, so it wasn't a big deal. I didn't
even think about it much because I knew it
was the right thing. People save money all
their life and then can't spend it."
Fator, 16 and a sophomore, is a young
man of few words, but said he was very
grateful for what Bermudez did for him.
"It's nice to have shoes without holes,"
Fator said. He then added,"I didn't know a
lot of the other runners and over the season
we kind of developed that running bond. I
started just running track and he kept bug-
ging me to join cross country. I said I'd give
it a try, but my old shoes wouldn't last run-
ning a 5K (five kilometers), so he took me
to get the shoes."
Fator was born in the war-torn Sudan and
moved to the United States in 2003. Before
coming here, his father moved to Egypt to
raise money to move them to this country.
Bermudez continued to help Fator dur-


ing the summer. He would drive his younger
teammate to cross country practice because
he did not have a ride.Then when Fator had
no way to get to his physical required to run
for the Gryphons, Bermudez stepped in and
again chauffeured him.
"He took Abdin under his wing like he
was his little brother," said Sickles boys cross
country coach Gail Bottone,who nominat-
ed Bermudez for the award."NowAbdin is
one of the top-three runners on the team up
there with Jonathon. It's amazing because
Abdin might get a scholarship to go to col-
lege because Jonathon helped him."
Bottone, the Sickles guidance depart-
ment head, said Jonathon's actions have
helped renew her faith in teenagers.
"I got goosebumps when I first heard
about what he did," Bottone said."I couldn't
believe a teenager could be so selfless. He
didn't do it for the notoriety.When he first
heard about it he said he didn't know be-
cause of the attention. He just did it because
he knew it was the right thing."
Fator has continued to be surprised by
Bermudez's generosity.
"I keep thinking why would someone do
so much for me," Fator said.
"I don't really think I did anything spe-
cial," Bermudez said."I saw a teammate that
needed some help and I gave it to him. I just
hope other kids who hear about this will do
the same thing the next time they see some-
one who needs some help."

Shrieks of excitement and -
the patter of eager feet filled
the hallways of area schools
as teachers led their young
students to different speakers
and activities lastThursday.
Nov. 18 marked the annu-
al Great American Teach-In, a
day during which a wide
range of professionals bring
their careers to the class-

Experts offer some timely tips to avoid fire dangers


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Thanksgiving - the day set aside for ex-
pressing gratitude for the good things in life
- is also the No.1 day nationally for cook-
ing fires, says the nonprofit National Fire
ProtectionAssociation.
Cooking equipment fires also remain the
leading cause of home fires and fire injuries,
and are the third-leading cause of fire
deaths, according to statistics from the
NFPA.
There are ways, however, for families to
avoid the risk of fires at Thanksgiving and
through the holidays,local experts say.
"The most common cause of fire in the
home is cooking," said Capt. Bill Wade of
Tampa Fire Rescue.
"Most of the fires that we see are from
unattended cooking.They'll put something
on the stove and just forget," said Amy
Schultz,fire inspector/public education for
Pasco County Fire Rescue.
The dangers of home fires increase dur-
ing the holidays, when people cook more,
use their fireplaces, light more candles,
string holiday lights and so forth.
"The message we spread is,have fun -
but be careful,"Wade said.
On Thanksgiving and throughout the hol-
iday season, there tend to be more
gatherings - with more people coming
over and more cooking being done, said
VickyYeakley, public education coordinator
for Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.
With so many people around, it's easy for
a cook to get distracted,Yeakley said. So, it's
important to take precautions to avoid po-
tential dangers.
If you're cooking something in the oven,
for instance, be sure to check on it periodical-
ly and set a timer so you don't forget, she said.
If you're cooking on the stovetop and
the doorbell or telephone rings, or someone
needs your attention, be sure to turn the
burner off or on low, and carry an oven mitt


or wooden spoon with you to re-
mind you that you have something Pro
on the stove,Yeakley said. * Eve
When you're turning a burner sm<
on, be sure that you've turned on sm<
the right one. It's easy to make that side
mistake and you could end up with insi
a fire, she said. It's also a good idea thai
to clean up any spills to avoid po- * Eve
tential fires in the future. ty
Also, try to avoid cooking when hap
you are wearing loose-fitting cloth- do.
ing because the clothing can catch Sourc
on fire,Yeakley said. Hillsb
Also be sure to keep anything
that could catch fire at least three
feet away from the stove,Yeakley added.
Keep kids at least three feet away from
the stove, too.
Stoves aren't the only cooking equip-
ment that can cause fires.
"Turkey frying has become quite popu-
lar,"Wade said, noting he understands the
appeal because the turkey is quite tasty.
However, he said, it is important to use the
fryer safely.
"The turkey needs to be completely
thawed," he said.
Schultz agreed: If the turkey is not
thawed, the ice will melt and cause the oil
to overflow.
"Only put in as much oil as you are sup-
posed to put in," Wade said. Otherwise,
when the turkey goes in, the oil could
splash out potentially burning someone
standing nearby.
Besides cooking fires, there are other po-
tential fire hazards that become more
prevalent at the holidays and during colder
winter months.
People tend to light more candles to cre-
ate a festive feel, but sometimes they forget
to blow them out before leaving the house
or going to sleep.
Wade recommends candles with a wide
base because they are less likely to tip over.
It's also important to keep a close watch


tecting yourself and your home
ry home should be protected by working
oke alarms.At minimum, there should be a
oke alarm on each story of the house and out-
e each bedroom. Even better - smoke alarms
de and outside each bedroom. Even better
n that - a sprinkler system to put out fires.
'ry household should have a fire escape safe-
plan and should do a few trial runs. If a fire
ppens, you'll be ready and will know what to

on children, who tend to be fascinated by
candle flames and fires burning in the fire-
place,Yeakley said. Be sure that candles are
out of children's reach and be sure they are
supervised wherever a fire is burning, she
said.
It's also important to keep an eye on
youngsters near tables that are laden with
hot foods,Yeakley said. Children who are
learning to walk may tug on a tablecloth to
help themselves up and can be burned by
hot foods spilling on them, she said.
If someone does get burned, the burn
should be cooled down with running tap
water, Schultz said. Do not use ice as it can
cause a frostbite-like injury, and don't use
butter because it seals the heat in, making
the injury worse.
Fireplaces and space heaters are other
sources of potential hazards.
When burning wood in the fireplace, be
sure it's the appropriate size,Wade said.Also
be sure there's a grate in front of the fire-
place."The smallest spark can start a fire."
Avoid burning Christmas tree branches
or wood in the fireplace,Yeakley said.
Don't burn paper in the fireplace either,
Yeakley said.
Embers from the fire can float out of the
chimney onto the roof or onto nearby trees
or bushes, which can start a blaze, she said.


Safe cooking tips
The National Fire Protection
Association offers these tips for safe
cooking:
* Remain in the kitchen while you are
frying, grilling or broiling food. If you
must leave the kitchen, even momen-
tarily, be sure to turn off the stove.
* Do not use the stove or stovetop if
you have consumed alcohol or you are
sleepy.
* If you are simmering, baking, roasting,
or boiling food, check it regularly, re-
main in the home while food is
cooking, and use a timer to remind
you that you are cooking.
* Keep anything that can catch fire -
oven mitts,wooden utensils,food
packaging, towels or curtains - away
from your stovetop.
For additional information, visit
www.nfpa.org


"If you've ever seen a Christmas tree on
fire,it almost explodes,"Yeakley said.
"If you're going to have a fire in the fire-
place,you can't go to bed until that fire has
gone to ashes," she added.
With space heaters, be sure to leave at
least three feet between the space heater
and anything that could catch on fire,
Yeakley said.
Christmas lights can also pose a hazard,if
the wiring is frayed or cracked. Be sure to
check your lights before you string them up.
And, be sure to check for the Underwriters
Laboratories Inc. (UL) label, which means
they've been tested for safety, she said.
Finally, if you're going to put up a fresh
Christmas tree in your house, be sure that
it's not dried out when you buy it and be
sure to keep it well-watered. For more infor-
mation about Christmas trees, visit

German teacher claims top state award in her field


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

One minute she's roving among
rows of desks, posing questions
and using facial expressions and
gestures to clue students in to what
she's asking about.
A few minutes later, she's at a
whiteboard at the back of the
room jotting down responses from
students as she runs through some
grammar drills.
Next, she's at the front of the
classroom, crouching behind a
bookcase while acting out a scene
from "The Seven Ravens," a fairy
tale from the Brothers Grimm.
If you pictured German class as
stiff or boring, you haven't visited
Anne Marie Schunemann's class-
room at Land O' Lakes High.
She combines high expecta-
tions with fun in a quest to not
only teach the German language,
but to familiarize them with the
country's culture too.
Apparently, her methods are
working.
The wall behind her desk is Anne M
loaded with accolades. Most recent- out a sc
ly, the Florida Association of Grimm
German Teachers named her the
2010 Florida German Teacher of the Year
during the Florida Foreign Language
Association's conference in Clearwater.
The recognition was both gratifying and
unexpected, Schunemann said.
"It felt like, 'Wow, I won the lifetime
achievement award, "she said.
The teacher never had any doubt about
what she wanted to do with her life.
She knew it in first grade.
She wanted to be like her teacher, Frau
Hanna Schwinning.
"She made learning so interesting and
fun," said Schunemann, who grew up in

cene from "The Seven Ravens" a fairy tale by the

Grosslittgen, three hours from Cologne.
"She had, really, a gift to inspire kids,"
Schunemann said.
Schunemann's students say she shares
her mentor's gift.
"She's the best teacher I've ever had,"
said Timo Russell, 17. "She always makes
sure that we know all of the material."
Ben Olson, a four-year student, signed up
at his mother's insistence during his fresh-
man year. "My family is from Germany," he
explained.
Now, he's glad his mother made him do
it.The class has made a tangible difference


in his life.
"I can speak to my grand-
parents now," Olson said.
.-- - There's another benefit too:"I
truly fell in love with the lan-
guage," he said.
The teenager has visited
Germany and said that speak-
ing the language has given him
access to better understand the
country's culture.
While recognizing the up-
side of taking German, that
doesn't mean it has been easy,
Olson said. "There's a lot of
homework."
However, he hastened to
add, Schunemann helps stu-
dents learn.
"She's really great at what
she does,' Olson said.
Britt DeBartolo, 16, said
Schunemann"is so invested in
actually teaching the language.
She teaches it really, really
well."
"It's definitely not an easy
class,' DeBartolo added, but she
has developed a real apprecia-
Nhile acting tion of German. "I think it's
Brothers beautiful, despite the harsh
I) sound of it," she said.
Schunemann began her
Pasco County teaching career at Pasco High
School in 1983 and remained there until
1991, taking a year off when she had a baby.
She came to Land O' Lakes High in 1992 and
has been there ever since.
Schunemann said she often goes to con-
ferences and seminars to help her stay
inspired and to pick up teaching ideas.
She tries to tie her lessons to current
events and to stay in tune with learning
techniques that keep up with the times.
"I like to look for new material," she said.
She also likes her lessons to resonate with
students."You have to adapt to what they


(students) like."
For one recent assignment, completed
around Halloween, she assigned students to
make tombstones of famous Germans, de-
tailing their contributions to society.
In another assignment, students wrote
poems in German about themselves.
During a recent class, she paired students
and assigned them to reassemble "The
Seven Ravens," which she had typed up and
cut into pieces.
Once they put the story together, the
pairs practiced reading it because the class
might perform the fairy tale for a play.The
students also had to answer questions based
on the story, which forced them to demon-
strate their knowledge of German grammar.
Besides challenging her students,
Schunemann views herself as a teacher who
wants to know her students well enough
that she can respond when they need help.
Schunemann said being an immigrant
and learning English as a second language
gives her insight into the challenges of
learning a foreign language, which in turn,
gives her empathy for her students.
"I walk in their shoes," she said.
But that doesn't mean she considers her-
self a pushover - in any way, shape or
form.
"I think I'm kind of tough. It's not a pop-
ularity contest,' Schunemann said.
She has some basic rules for her stu-
dents:"Be on time. Do your work."
"I don't like to waste time. If they sign up
for my class, it means business,"
Schunemann said.
Schunemann is clearly prepared for her
classes - jamming instruction into every
available minute.
She wouldn't have it any other way.
"They want to learn; I want to teach.
"In December, I'm starting my 27th year,"
Schunemann said."I think I could not have
picked a career that suited me better. I
could not think of anything I would rather
do."

Hillsborough voters derail Pasco transit plan


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Hillsborough County residents voted a
resounding no Nov. 2 to raising the sales tax
to fund a light rail system, which may delay
a similar plan in Pasco County.
The Hillsborough plan, which would
have also paid for more buses and road proj-
ects, could have helped connect all areas of
the county to the future high-speed rail sys-
tem. Pasco government officials were
counting on linking to their southern neigh-
bor's rail route.
"The no vote in Hillsborough will slow
things down because Hillsborough is the
key to the region because of its size and lo-
cation," said Pasco commissioner Jack
Mariano.
Pasco's growth management administra-
tor, Richard Gehring, said the county plans to
put a similar transit tax referendum on the
ballot for the 2018 midterm or 2020 presi-
dential election. He said how much taxes
could rise by and what area or areas the in-
crease would be imposed on is not set.
Gehring said details on how a rail sys-
tem would roll out are also not set, but it is
projected a line of tracks would be built fol-
lowing SR 54. From there it would shoot


down to connect
with a future
Hillsborough system.
This would connect
Pasco with the future
high-speed rail be-
tween Orlando and
Tampa.
Pasco Economic John Hagen
Development
Council president
John Hagen said linking with the high-speed
rail would help bring business to the coun-
ty.
"Places like The Shops atWiregrass could
become shopping destinations for places
outside of the county' Hagen said."It already
is for our residents because of everything it
has to offer, but with increased travel it
could become a regional hub."
Gehring said most cities and counties
put similar initiatives on their ballots several
times before they pass.
Right now the county is focusing on
building roads to help move people and
goods across Pasco. Such projects include
the widening of SR 54 inWesley Chapel and
the future Zephyrhills Bypass to help con-
nect the east Pasco city to the rest of the
county. However, Pasco commissioners


Richard Gehring


Ann Hildebrand


Mariano and Ann Hildebrand both believe
the future could be with a rail system.
That rail system's future is now delayed
with Hillsborough residents rejecting the
referendum. However, Hildebrand, who is
Pasco's representative on the Tampa
Bay Area Regional Transportation
Authority, came up with a different
idea than a one-county vote. She sug-
gests Pasco, Hillsborough and Pinellas i
counties should think about referen-
dum for the Tampa Bay area counties to
pool resources to a rail system instead
passing three different ones.
While few in the Pasco government
are against the idea of a rail system, one
Tampa Bay area group flatly rejects the
idea - No Tax for Tracks.
The campaign was started in


Hillsborough by a group of people who op-
posed the county's referendum. John
Hendricks was one of the founders and said
he thinks the plan was a bad idea from the
start.
Hendricks said Hillsborough's plan
would have only helped the people in the
city of Tampa and a couple other outlying
areas, but everyone would have had to pay
the 1-cent increase on sales tax. He said the
group would bring the same fight against a
Pasco rail system.
Despite the opposition from the group
and the no vote in Hillsborough, it seems
the idea of a rail system is far from dead in
both counties.


Pasco resident survey online
Pasco County is launching another communi-
:y outreach effort for feedback from its
residents. During the next several months,the
Pasco Board of County Commissioners will
review and update its strategic plan, which af-
ects the future of the area. Input from
residents and local businesses is important to
continue this process.To take the survey, visit
www.surveymonkey.com/s/20 I OCitizenSurvey.
Residents can take the survey until Nov. 30.

How to cut calories at Rapscallions

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
My next stop
was a restaurant
nestled a lake in
Land O' Lakes
called Rapscallions.
They have a wide
range of healthy op-
tions, including
whole wheat bread
for sandwiches. The
first thing I advise is, tell them not to bring
the chips. Oh boy, these have to be the most
fattening chips I have ever tasted!
I don't fault them for that since they're
not claiming their chips are healthy. But,
make it a point to tell them not to bring
the chips. It's one of those things that can
totally derail your healthy eating experi-
ence.
Instead, skip straight to the black bean
soup, which is unbelievably awesome. It's
high in fiber and even higher in flavor, but
definitely not too high in fat. It comes
with white rice though, so ask for no rice.
The other dish I ordered was a salad
with an awesome twist. Anyone in the
mood for wings? Well, they aren't really
wings, but rather buffalo chicken on a bed
of greens. The best part of it is that you
can get it grilled, always a good thing.
It can satisfy your craving for that wing


sauce flavor and since there is so much of
it in its sauce, there isn't even a need for
dressing. As I always recommend, ask to
substitute Romaine lettuce, put the dress-
ing on the side and hold the shredded
cheese, please.
It does come with blue cheese crum-
bles. It's OK to have a little fat in your salad
since the chicken is grilled and you won't
be using most of the dressing anyway.
Don't use all the crumbles, though; just
sprinkle them on your salad. I didn't do
this and figured out it was too much.This
delectable salad is so huge, you will have
plenty left to take home.
It sounds fun that it comes in a tortilla
bowl but unfortunately, that adds too
many calories to your otherwise healthy
meal, so just ask for a regular bowl.
Another healthy dish they offer is
tilapia, which is available grilled or cajun,
with a side of veggies. Anytime you order
fish, tell them to cook it dry, meaning it
won't be dipped or basted in butter or oil.
Don't worry, it will still be moist, only with
way less fat. Oh, and tell them to not add
butter to the veggies. You may not realize
it, but these little details could save you
from those extra 500 hidden calories!

For more information, on healthy or-
dering, visit Samantha Taylor's blog at
I'l' thiissfit coin.


The buffalo chicken salad with grilled chicken at Rapscallions packs the taste of wings
without many of the calories.

Hardware store a Land 0' Lakes fixture for nearly 50 years


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

As patrons approach the entrance to
Harvey's Hardware in Land O'Lakes, they're
greeted by a handwritten welcome
scrawled in colored marker across a white
board.
It encourages them to come on in, sit a
spell and pet the cat.
And, before they can even cross the
threshold, they're thanked in advance for
doing business at the independent shop, a
fixture in the community for almost a half-
century.
"Thank you, Land O' Lakes, for support-
ing your hometown small business;' the sign
reads."Keep our community strong."
Once inside, customers find plenty of
items that can come in handy for just about
any imaginable chore or repair around the
house, at a business, in the yard, on a farm, in
a barn - well,you get the idea.
This is a place that carries colored rope
by the spool, with customers choosing the
color and length that they want.They can
select red, yellow, white, black or green rope
and a clerk will cheerfully measure and cut
what the customer desires.

They also carry spools of cable, which
also can be cut to order. And many of the
nuts, bolts and screws can be bought indi-
vidually instead of by the package.
Harvey's sells all sorts of tools.There's a
giant wrench that looks like it was made for
industrial-sized jobs and a set of pliers that
looks like it's intended for smaller tasks.

Customers can choose vari- Harvey's Hardware has been
ous colors of rope and have it certified dealer of Case knives
cut to the length they want. for nearly 50 years.


The variety of stock in the store seems
endless.
There are saw blades, wire mesh, a
clothesline tightener and rubber basin stop-
pers.
There's an emergency tow rope, sandpa-
per, rusty metal primer and contact cement.
There's carpenter's glue, washboards,
wheel barrels and buckets.
There are mailboxes, miniature
lights, rubber boots and air-condition-
ing filters of all sorts of shapes and
sizes.
The list goes on and on and on.
And, if the store doesn't have it,
chances are it can get it for you within
24 hours - if you drop by before noon
and the warehouse has it in stock, said
Emma Lou Harvey, whose late husband,
Ted, bought the business on April 1,
1961.
Ted ran the business until he died

take over.
She runs the shop with her son, Paul, and
the store's employees Susi Kottwitz and Dee
Dee Amodio.
Emma Lou is extremely proud of her em-
ployees' knowledge about the items they
sell.
The customer base has shifted through
the years, Emma Lou said."We had lots of
charge accounts for groves and ranches," she
said."That's where they planted houses."
The store still draws a fair amount of
business from farmers and ranchers, but
other patrons include truckers, lawn and
garden lovers, do-it-yourselfers, pocket knife
enthusiasts and people needing to make
small repairs.
Emma Lou said the store draws cus-
tomers primarily from Land O'Lakes, Lutz
andWesley Chapel, but patrons have been
known to come from Dade City, Seminole
Heights, south Tampa and other places, too.
She thinks good customer service has
been the key to her company's survival.
"If you don't treat them right, they won't
be back."

Most thankful for 'Minnesota Nice'


By Diane Kortus
Publisher
One of the more
pleasurable aspects of
mid life is recognizing
that the things I am
most thankful for
today are markedly dif-
ferent than those in my
30s and 40s. Gone are
the thanks for material-
istic achievements and
welcome are the simplest joys.


Mid life is all about downsizing and sim-
plifying. It's not until you hit your 50s that
you can appreciate the joys you were too
busy to see when you were in the throes of
raising kids and establishing your career.
It is these simplest pleasures that I am
most thankful for this Thanksgiving week,
joys that include...
- My hairdresser at J.Joseph Salon who
knows when it's time to "jazz me up" by
adding red highlights to my color.
- Discovering that our community editor,
B.C. Manion, shares my zeal for Garrison


iWe Bring tle Ne

area happenings or sports, you can
count on us for all the latest local news. 1i a

Keilor and Prairie Home Companion. B.C. and
I had center front seats recently at Keilor's
performance at MahaffeyTheater in St. Pete. If
we ever questioned whether Lake Wobegon
really existed, we don't any longer. Garrison
made his fictional world as real as our own.
- The hour it takes to clean my 1,400
square foot house, versus the Saturday of
chores that came with the 4-bedroom, 3-bath
house I left behind.
- Twenty-two years of parenting that
enabled me to keep my mouth shut when
my beautiful, longhaired daughter came
home from college last month with a
Mohawk haircut.Two decades of mother-
hood has taught me that ranting would only
prolong my daughter's"shock and awe" ex-
periment. Instead, I called the cut"edgy and
artistic" and was silently thankful there were
no piercings to go with the Mohawk.
- At long last to have time to start a
book and actually finish it within a week.
This week I read"Women Food and God" by
Geneen Roth and recommend it to those
who want to be free from the power food
holds over us.
- The ability of Becca, my personal
trainer at Pure Health Studios, to get me to
laugh at myself as my body does the oppo-
site of what she asks. Becca's unfailing
encouragement keeps me coming back for
more pain three days a week.
- Zeke, our 11-year-oldYellow Lab, who
shows few signs of aging and keeps up with


the pace set by my energetic and much
younger Airedale on our daily walks.
- My 81-year-old father in Minnesota
who, like Zeke, also shows few signs of
aging and continues to be the center of the
universe for his children and grandchildren.
- My pond and its trickling waterfall that
my son dug last fall and the "Narnia"light post
he installed as my Christmas present that illu-
minates the pond and front porch. There is no
sweeter delight than sitting on my front porch
with a cup of coffee and frothy milk on a cool
Sunday morning reading the morning papers
with the sounds of the pond behind me.
- The ease of illuminating my porch
with Christmas lights by simply plugging
them into the outlet because I no longer
bother to take the lights down after the hol-
iday season.
- My colleagues here at the paper who
are more friends than employees. I treasure
how we genuinely care for each other and
how well we work together to produce
good community newspapers every week.
- For the abundance of"niceness" that
surrounds me. I am continually amazed at
the grace that blesses this world and en-
velops me with kindness.
Some call this karma, others good will.
Those of us from my home state call it
"Minnesota Nice." But it is not particular to
Minnesotans. I come across it every day,usu-
ally many times a day, and hope that it finds
you this Thanksgiving holiday.

HEROES, from page 1


Colton Shepard's actions save family
It was a good thing Colton Shepard de-
cided to wear is brother's combat boots
June 16 because without them, he might
not have been able to rescue a mother and
child from a burning car.
The Gaither High senior was walking
home from a friend's house when he saw
the aftermath of a car accident near the in-
tersection of Dale Mabry and North
Lakeview Drive,just south of Lutz. Despite
the vehicle being on fire and the real possi-


j tE --: ability of it exploding,
Colton jumped into
action.
"I ran across the
road and kicked
through the wind-
shield, which was
already cracked,"
Colton Shepard Colton said. "Then I
took off my shirt and
used it to clear the glass from the opening
so I could get the mother and kid out with-
out hurting them or hurting myself."
Colton, 17, does not know the people he

saved. He believes the child to be 5 or 6-
years-old.
"They didn't really say anything to me
because I think they were in shock," Colton
said.
Colton stayed with the family until para-
medics arrived. When he saw they were
being treated by rescuers, he left instead of
staying for potential adoration.
"I knew they were OK so I just walked
home," Colton said. He then added jokingly,
"I still had to get home and I didn't think
they'd be able to take me home on the way
to the hospital."
When he got to his house, Colton told
his mother Kathy what happened.
"I can't tell you my exact words, I was very
surprised," Kathy said. "We went to the fire sta-
tion and they told me the same thing he said."
Colton attributes his quick actions to
what he has learned in Gaither's JROTC pro-
gram. Besides acting fast, he told others on
the scene not to throw water on the fire be-
cause of all the gas and oil.


TEACH-IN, from page 1
"C'mon, let's see your speed," encouraged
Peterson, while the children ran sprints.
Ready for a rest, the students filed back
into a classroom for a visit with Deputy
Tobias Smith, who has been working at the
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for the
past 16 years.
At Lutz Elementary, students were simi-
larly intrigued by what Dan Harrison was
holding.Visiting from Tampa Guitar, Harrison
was showing a fourth grade class the basics
of playing guitar. He began by asking the stu-
dents a few questions, and was impressed
when many knew the difference between
acoustic and electric guitars.
Harrison showed them what "fretting a
note" was, then let his fingers slither across
the fret board to show that chords were "a
bunch of different pitches being put together."
With a few more examples and instructions
on how to hold a pick, fourth-grader John
Anthony Perrone got to strum a few chords


"That also comes from working at
McDonald's," Colton said."A fire like that,
water just spreads it around."
Kathy sent a letter to Colton's JROTC in-
structors, Senior Chief Edward Donohue
and Capt. Sreten Zivovic, along with Gaither
principal Marie Whelan.The letter thanked
them for helping teach Colton to do the
right thing and also to tell them what he
had done.After learning about what he did,
his instructors nominated Colton.
Colton said he wants to join the military
after graduating. His older brother, James,
served four years in the Middle East, follow-
ing in the footsteps of Kathy (20 years in the
armed forces) and Colton's grandfather,
James, who served four years.
Colton is currently the commanding offi-
cer of Gaither's JROTC athletic team and also
the executive officer of the academic team.
"JROTC is all about working as a team,"
Colton said."When I saw that car on fire I felt
like that was a member of my team in trou-
ble.I just acted the way I've been taught."


on the guitar before Harrison continued his
lesson, showing the children just what 10
years of dedication to a craft can create.
At Double Branch Elementary School,
the horses of Pasco County Sheriff's
Mounted Posse towered above enraptured
second- and third-graders, who learned that
the most important jobs of the horses and
their riders are search and rescue missions.
With a multitude of speakers visiting dif-
ferent schools in Hillsborough and Pasco
counties on Thursday, and with such a vari-
ety of classes and grades within every
school, each student participating in the
Great American Teach-In was sure to have
an individual experience unlike any other
child's. But regardless of whether they saw a
miniature horse or a draft horse, ran relays
or played lacrosse, every child learned some-
thing on Thursday. They learned that
everyone is good at something.That thou-
sands of career possibilities exist. And that
they can be - and do - anything.

Felicitous Coffee House

provides comfort in Lutz


By Shannon Edinger
Laker Correspondent
There is a coffee house on the block that
has the Lutz community buzzing. Felicitous
Coffee House opened its doors six months
ago, and, although it is new, it has already
been awarded "Best of the Bay" by Creative
Loafing for its iced coffee.
Two friends, Cristie Leacock and Rani
Chehal, co-own the business at 19015 N. U.S.
41,just north of Lutz Lake Fern Rd.,in a lo-
cation that was previously a gas station and
a thrift store.
Now filled with vintage decorations and
artwork, it has become a go-to spot for cof-
fee and pastries.
Leacock describes the atmosphere as
vintage, artsy and eclectic.
"We have always supported small mom
and pop shops so we sell their work here,"


...and
of wh
in the


Leacock said. "We have some locally made
arts and goods, homemade soups and can-
dles. We want to start selling pottery also."
Leacock said the coffee house's decor is
meant to make people feel like they are at
home.There are comfy chairs and couches
so people can take off their shoes and relax.
Artwork is displayed throughout the coffee
house and there are board games for cus-
tomers to play.
Felicitous hosts events such as open mic
nights on Wednesdays for local amateur mu-
sicians and poetry/spoken word nights on
Thursday. They also have knitting and gam-
ing nights on Tuesdays. Saturday are Doggy
Day at the cafe, when they provide water
and treats for dogs outside on the patio.
Spaces can be reserved for events on
Sunday. USF students get a discount on
Monday nights.
In this rough economy, Felicitous tries to
keep its prices low. Coffee is $2, cupcakes are
$3.50 and muffins are $2.50. Leacock says
they are experimenting with new drinks, but
a customer favorite is the java chip frap.
"The secret is in the way you make it,"
Leacock says.
Felicitous also serves gourmet sandwich-
es from Five and Two, a nonprofit Tampa
area ministry that helps benefit food
pantries.
Felicitous is open Monday through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. It is closed
on Sunday except for reserved events. For

Steinbrenner boys cross country takes second in state


By Zack Peterson
Special to The Laker

They call it Little Everglades Ranch, but
the site of the state cross country finals was
anything but little.With a massive stretch of
green pasture-like grass and a subtle, but vi-
cious hill that runners had to battle for the
last half mile of the race, the ranch was a
giant of a course.
But for the 'ircibllrciiicr HighWarriors,
the reward was sweet.
TheWarriors, representing their second-
year school, placed second in the state for
Class 2A.
Only Estero High topped them with 87
total points.
By the time the sun had fully risen into
the sky, the day's races were concluded and
the awards were announced.While some
teams groaned in agony over their losses,
the Warriors leapt with joy.
"I'm overwhelmed," said Zachary Lima, a
sophomore on the team who finished with
a time of 17:09.
"I didn't think we would do this well. But
our coach was right. He said,'Run what you
can run and you'll do something big.'"
Coming into the state finals, the Warriors
were ranked 11th and were hoping for a
top-five finish in the overall team rankings.
"We expected anywhere from 12th to
second place and we would've been very
happy for a top five [finish]," said Dan
Sarver, a senior on the team. "All the hard
work helped, and every day paid off."
Lima said the team finished last in the re-
gion in its inaugural season. So what were
the significant changes between last year
and this year?
According to sophomore Matt Magee,it
was the hard work and coaching.
"Between last year and this year, we got
separate coaches for the girls' and boys'
teams." Furthermore, the varsity team ran
roughly 500 miles over the summer.
"After that, we were pretty much com-
mitted," Magee said.
Coach Bobby McConnell shares the sen-
timent.As the coach for this young squad, he

assumed the team had an"outside shot" at
ranking like they did.
"It's a little bit of a surprise," McConnell
said."But it's these kids' work ethic.They do
what it takes to win.They're always there,
whether it's an early morning practice at six
or an evening practice that runs until eight.
"I'll never coach a group of kids who
worked as hard as they did."

Steinbrenner girls take positive step
For the Lady Warriors, their experience at
the states finals was just another stepping
stone in a positive direction for their young
team.
"They did really well," said head coach
Ladd Baldwin."We've got a good, strong fu-
ture. States was a nice building bock [for the
team]."
Between this year and last year, the
Warriors emphasized more tempo workouts
and more weekend runs, some that ranged
up to eight miles long.Also, the team trav-
eled to the Florida State University
Invitational, and took a trip up to Brevard
Community College for an exclusive run-
ning trip to bring the team together.
"Last year was about having fun. This
year we still wanted that fun element, but
we stepped up the training," Baldwin said.
But the turning point was this year's


Hillsborough County
Freshmen/Sophomore Meet.
"That's where out girls started
realizing, 'we can do this,' "
Baldwin said.
Ultimately, they finished 22nd
as a team, with Lauren Garris, the
team's leading sophomore,finish-
ing at a time of 19:28.
"I wanted a top-20 finish,"
said Garris, who finished 21st
overall."But we've been bond-
ing so well this year with team
activities and I think we're mov-
ing to new places with this
the state young team."
City. The rest of the girls finished
at assorted times, mainly be-
tween 19-22 minutes.Together,
their point values added up to 440.
At this stage, the next thing on the
Warriors check list is theAAU National Race
scheduled for Dec. 4.
"My goal is to always keep them motivat-
ed with what's next," Baldwin said.

Sunlake's Fessell in 3A
Little Everglades Ranch isn't just composed
of steep, rolling hills or grassy green flats. In the
wide open pasture, the sun had the chance to
shine on the whole event with its scorching
rays. By the time several 3A runners took off at
the sound of the gun, the sun hung high in the
sky, at its most blaring temperature.
For junior Sunlake High runner Kenneth
Fessel, who's advanced to states the past
three years, it was tough not only on his
body, but his time.
"I trained hard and hoped for the best,"
Fessel said."It just didn't all come together;
but it was a good experience."
Overall, Fessel finished with a time of
17:10, while he was instead hoping to
"break 16 [minutes]."

Sickles at the meet
Others, like David Piatt of Sickles High,
noted the challenging aspects of the course.
"We put all we had into our workouts
and gave it our all to get here,' Piatt said."But


I'm not really sure what happened.We did a
lot worse than I thought. Maybe it was the
heat or maybe the course was a little loose'.
Sickles coach Gail Bottone offered a dif-
ferent theory.
"I think about,'what did I do personally
to prepare them?'" Bottone said. "I think
they were prepared mentally, but we hadn't
done a lot of hill training."
"In hindsight, hill preparation is some-
thing to work on [for next year]."
Sickles ultimately finished 24th in the
team rankings after what seemed to be a
miracle run to states.According to Piatt,"just
being here alone was a big thing for us."
However, Sickles didn't just send its
boys' squad. They sent Sarah Hartman as
well, a sophomore runner for the girls' team
who was the only individual to advance
from regionals.
For Hartman, the experience was incred-
ibly gratifying. Juggling soccer and cross
country, she pushed herself to excel in both,
making it her ultimate goal to make it to the
state finals.
After finishing with a 20:49 minute 5K,
the athlete was pleased.
"I think I did pretty decent. I'm going to
tell everyone how amazing states is and
hopefully they'll be inspired from it,"
Hartman said.

Gator runners climb the hill
Inspiration at the state finals wasn't as sim-
ple to come by as it may seem, though.The
last portion of the course - the most impor-
tant - was all an up slide. Runners started off
the race up-hill and at the end had to push
themselves back up the steep monster.
In particular, the boy's at Land O' Lakes
High noticed this.
"I didn't want to do it," said Dillon Oergel,
jokingly, of the last up-hill segment."But I did-
n't - and couldn't - let my team down."
Oergel and the rest of his teammates
combined their efforts to finish 15th in the
team rankings at states.
"We ran the best we could," said senior
Jacob Morken."I'm proud of all of us. I know
we left nothing out there."


Zephyrhills Christian Academy brings home state title


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

For the last three seasons the Zephyrhills
Christian Academy six-man football Warriors
were knocked out of the playoffs in the
state semifinals, but something was different
about this team.
The Warriors (13-0) completed a perfect
season after defeating Lakeside Christian
High 71-41, claiming the program's first state
championship.
"This team was definitely more of a fami-
ly," said junior defensive end Josh Dudeck.
"We were just more together and more will-
ing to listen to what our coaches had to say.
We all wanted to win and did everything we
could to do that."
Senior defensive lineman Sean White has
been on the team for five years back when
the Warriors played flag football.
"Every year we felt like we had it, but
something would happen to stop us,"White
said. "Then this year to be the best all the
way to the end, it's an awesome feeling."
White can point to one game where he
and the team knew they could win the title.
"After we played Academy at the Lakes,
that was our first tough game, but we man-
aged to beat them,"White said."Most games
we'd score first and not give up a point all
night, so that showed us we were mentally
tougher."


Coach Mike Smith felt the same about
the matchup with the Wildcats, which the
Warriors won 54-13.
"That's where we'd have problems in the
past," Smith said."We'd get scored on or get
behind and then we'd just collapse.They've
learned this year that you can be down and
still win if you stick together."
To finish the season perfect, the Warriors
had to take down two undefeated teams,
the defending state champs Clearwater
Academy International in the semifinals and
then Lakeside for the crown.
"It was a great feeling," Dudeck said.
"Just everything you worked so hard for
has happened. Coming out during the sum-
mer and sweating and hurting, it was all
worth it."
The Warriors have three seniors and
could lose another two players to early grad-
uation. Given that a loss could have ended
five of the Warriors' high school careers, it is
ironic the team's quarterback is its youngest
player.
"I know I'd want to go out my senior
year on top, so I was trying to help them get
that title," said eighth-grade quarterback
Mikey Smith, who just turned 15.
Mikey threw three touchdown passes in
the title game,including a 75-yard score to
junior running back Josh Roberts.
Roberts, who is the brother of
Zephyrhills High football player Jamal

Roberts,had eight touchdowns in the cham-
pionship game, while senior Joel Mobley
had three. Roberts got the bulk of the touch-
es in the game,gaining more than 400 yards,
while Mobley kicked in 150.
The Warriors defense was led by line-
backer Dale Smith Jr., who had a team-high
14 tackles and two sacks. Dudeck also had
two sacks, while Mobley and junior Jacob
Ferrington each had interceptions.
Dale had an interesting set of mixed feel-
ings after winning the title.


THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS


"I didn't know what to think," Dale said.
"You're upset that you don't get to play any-
more that year.You're done preparing and
playing every week, but obviously it's great
because you're the best. So it's a good but
bad feeling that football is over."
Dale had not played football since his
freshman year.
"I guess it just comes natural," Dale said
of how he picked the sport back up."We
had a lot of great coaching and good team-
work. It just all came together perfect."

Three Seahawks make


college commitments


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Most high school athletes' playing days
end after graduation, but a trio of Sunlake
High softball players beat those odds and
signed with colleges Nov. 10.
PitcherTyler Riendeau signed with Landers
University, outfielder and shortstop Alex Rogers
with University of North Carolina-Charlotte
(UNC-Charlotte) and catcher Amanda Solar
with the University ofTampa (UT).
"Walking into a program that has three
athletes gifted enough to sign with college
tells me how good the team is," said first-
year coach Jami Finan, who spent two years
coaching junior varsity softball at Wesley
Chapel High before moving to Sunlake.
"We played against this team last year, so
I knew they were good and this just proves
that,' Finan continued."We've had a good fall
program getting to know the girls and their
skills and I think the upper classmen will
step up this year."


Solar picked UT for its journalism
program. She wants to work in sports
broadcasting for ESPN. She batted .265
and threw out 11 of 25 potential base-
stealers last year.
"I'm so happy to have my letter of
intent signed because now I can
relax," Solar said."I was actually really
nervous about it last year, but now that
I know I've signed I'll be able to relax
and just play."
Riendeau came to Sunlake last year.
She throws a fastball, dropball, knuck-
leball and cutter. Last season she led
the team with 10 wins while adding a Fro
save with an earned run average of legE
Rus
2.50. She also had a .349 batting aver-
age, 22 hits and nine RBI.
"I'm just ready to go out this season and
make it my best," Riendeau said."I've been
working to make my pitches better and I
can't wait to get back on the mound."
Rogers made a selfless act for the team last
season when she switched from playing out-

field to shortstop for the good of the team.
"I'll play wherever coach wants me,"
Rogers said."I just want to play wherever it
most helps the team win."
Despite being new to the position, she
still made the All-Sunshine Athletic


Conference first team last year. She batted
.378 with a team leading 35 runs scored
while adding 28 hits and 12 RBI. She also
led the team with 14 steals.

Steinbrenner's first athletic signing


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

A pair of Steinbrenner High students
signed athletic scholarships to compete in
college Nov. 12, the first inWarriors history.
AlexWitt signed to compete in gymnas-
tics at Penn State University, while Alex
Milan picked Florida State University (FSU)
for golf.

State University. (Photos by Kyle LoJacono)


"Their abilities have allowed them to get
a free education, which is very hard to come
by," said tcinlurcincr athletic director Eddie
Henderson. "These are the definition of
scholar athletes."
Milan was actually the first from the
school to commit to a college about a
month ago.
"I went there and I fell in love with it,"
Milan said of FSU."I got to go to the (football)
game against BYU and it was so amazing. FSU
won and I had the best time.The coaches
and team are fantastic and the facilities are
great too. It's the perfect combination of a
great program and incredible atmosphere."
The senior golfer was also a part of the
firstWarriors team to reach a state tourna-
ment this year. She won her fourth straight
district championship this season, two at
Sickles High and the last two at
Steinbrenner. For that whole time her high
school coach has been Mark Mann.
"She's been such a hard worker since I
meet her four years ago,' Mann said."She has

that rare combination of great talent and
work ethic to make herself even better.
Then she also worked with the other golfers
to make them better too and you don't have
to worry about grades with her."
Mann said it will be hard to replace


Milan next year, but he feels she has estab-
lished a strong tradition ofWarriors golf.
"It has been great to be part of a new
program," Milan said."I'll always remember it
and whenever I can I'll come back and visit
the team."

'Cats and Dogs bring home state title


Eastside Bombers
take third

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

After professional teams win a champi-
onship, the star player will step to a
microphone and proudly announce they are
going to DisneyWorld. For the'Cats and Dogs
that is where they claimed their crown.
The team won the state Special
Olympics softball championship at Disney's
Wide World of Sports Complex. It is the
squad's first softball title.The team is made
up of players ages 22 or younger.All are stu-
dents at either Zephyrhills High or
Moore-Mickens Education Center.
"It was quite a celebration afterwards,"
said'Cats and Dogs coach Belinda Brown,
who leads the team with co-coach Judy
Brunner."Judy and I were very proud of this
team. They all wore their medals to school
after winning.They are walking a little taller
that's for sure."
The squad did win a state soccer cham-
pionship in May. Brunner has said that
showed the team's athletic ability, but soft-
ball is a much different game.
"To me softball is the most difficult team
sport for these athletes to learn," Brunner
said previously."They have to catch a small
ball, throw to the right base and hit, which

championship in Orlando. (Photo courtesy of Belinda Brown)


is hard for anyone to do."
The'Cats and Dogs have mastered those
fine-motor skills and won both games in the
tournament after winning all their contests
leading up to the event. They defeated a
team from Miami 15-5 to get to the title
game and had to beat that same opponent
12-10 to win the championship.
"The second game was very exciting,"
Brown said."We came out a little flat and we
were losing until the fifth inning, but then
we started hitting and had some great defen-
sive plays that were the difference. They
were very nervous and excited, so I was try-
ing to keep them focused and calm."
Pasco had another team represented at


the event, the Eastside Bombers who are
also coached by Brown and Brunner.The
team has players older than 22 and also ---
come from east and central Pasco.
The Bombers took home the bronze Shortstop Brian Starnes of Zephyrhills
medal for their efforts in the state tourna- helped the 'Cats and Dogs win the state

Wiregrass Ranch best season comes to a close


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.corn


Second
matchL


The Wiregrass Ranch High Pasco at J
football team reached the Class 3A
playoffs for the first time in Friday, No
program history, but its time
in the Class 4A postseason
was brief after a first-round 40-8 loss to
Springstead High.
"We will take this into the offseason and
learn from this experience,' said Bulls coach
Jeremy Shobe.
Shobe then added about Wiregrass
Ranch (6-5) making its first playoff appear-
ance:"It's a great feeling. I hate to go out like
this, but we're establishing that we're a con-
tender. People will take us serious now and
we're going to learn and build from here."
Along with that playoff appearance, the
Bulls won their first district championship
and posted the first winning season in the
program's fifth year.After the game, assistant
Jeremy Brooks reminded the Bulls of all
they have accomplished this year, especially
to the seniors.
"All you seniors, you made history here,"
Brooks said."You're the ones who got us our
first district championship."
Shobe agreed with Brooks.

"They'll go
down for us forev-
er in history,"
Shobe said. "First
champions, first
playoff team
Wiregrass has ever had. I've been with these
kids for a long time and I knew they had the
potential in them.They will forever have a
special place in my heart.They enabled us
as a football program to win our first cham-
pionship."
Quarterback James Tringali is one of
those seniors. He has been the Bulls starter
since halfway through his freshman year.
"He's had a tremendous senior season,"
Shobe said of Tringali."We couldn't ask any-
thing more from what he's been able to do
and improve as a football player and a leader.
He's gotten better each and every season,
and he's not finished playing football yet."

The Wiregrass signal caller also threw an
interception, but recorded 142 passing
yards, including a 52-yard strike to senior
Nick Lomba.Tringali then connected with
senior wide receiver Antwan Prince for a
two-point conversion.
The Bulls defense had trouble reacting to
the Springstead option offense. Shobe said it

was the first time they had seen the system
all year.
The Eagles option attack was led by run-
ning back Devean Huff, who had 159
rushing yards on 19 carries and one touch-
down. Quarterback Brian Beeker added 155
rushing yards and 85 passing yards, includ-
ing an 11-yard connection to Taylor Minter.
Jeremy Junod added two more scoring runs.


The Wiregrass Ranch sidelines put the
Bulls horns in the air for every kickoff.

Senior running back Nick Lomba scored the
only Bulls touchdown on this 52-yard catch.

Gators season has familiar end
For the second straight season, the Land
O' Lakes High football team is eliminated
from the 3A playoffs at Jefferson High.The
Dragons (11-0) put up the game's first 31
points in route to a 54-19 win against the
Gators (9-2).
Land O' Lakes was again without senior
quarterback Stephen Weatherford for undis-
closed reasons.Junior Ryan Bird filled in and
threw for more than 200 yards and a pair of
touchdown passes, both to senior Will
Irwin. Senior Justin Tello added a 67-yard in-
terception return for a score, but it was not
enough to match the Jefferson attack.

Pasco keeps playoff dreams alive
Pasco High mounted a furious second-
half comeback to advance past Lakewood
High 27-20 in the 3A first round.The Pirates
(11-0) were down 20-0 at the break, but four
rushing scores brought the Dade City squad
back and avenged a first round loss to the
Spartans in last year's postseason.
Pasco swept through the 3A-7 regular
season and was only really tested by Land
O' Lakes, the only team to play the Pirates
within one score. Pasco had only trailed
twice before the home playoff contest.
Trey Dudley-Giles put the Pirates on the
scoreboard with a 64-yard touchdown run.
David Emmanuel then kicked in two scor-
ing runs of three yards. Pasco took the lead
on a four-yard run by Janarion Grant.

That Thanksgiving Food!

Q Each of the following P- ku -


Every year in November, the National Turkey Federation (NTF)
brings two turkeys to the White House. The best turkey is taken to
a ceremony, while the other is put someplace safe. At the ceremony,
the president meets the turkey and pardons it and the other turkey,
saving them from being eaten for Thanksgiving dinner.
The NTF has been raising turkeys for the ceremony since 1947,
when members presented a turkey to President Harry Truman. The
process of choosing the turkey and getting it ready to meet the
president isn't easy. It all starts in April when a large batch of male
turkeys hatch from their eggs. The turkeys are raised carefully, and
in August when they weigh about 25 pounds, six are chosen as
presidential candidates. The lucky six are moved to another building
and watched over carefully from August to November. To get the
turkeys used to people, workers dress like White House officials,
gather around the turkeys, talk loudly, and pet and feed the turkeys.
Eventually the two turkeys that look and behave the best are
chosen for the White House. The turkeys spend the night before the
ceremony at a hotel. The next day, they go to the White House, where
the best turkey meets the president. After the ceremony, the turkeys
are taken to Frying Pan Park's Kidwell Farm in Herndon, VA, where
they stay until their death.

N*.. "` A CT OR FICTION?
Did you know that cartoonist Charles Schulz was born on November 26,
1922? Schulz grew up in St. Paul, MN, where he did so well in school that he
skipped a couple of half-grades. After serving in the army, Schulz created his
first regular comic strip, "Li'l Folks," which was published in 1947. In it, the
character of Charlie Brown first appeared with a dog that looked a lot like
Snoopy. Three years later, Schulz's comic strip "Peanuts" debuted on October
2. It became so popular that Schulz gave up another comic strip to focus on it.
Here are some questions about other cartoonists and their work. How many
can you answer correctly?

Marge, son Bart and daughters Lisa and Lily. Fact or Fiction?

Fact or Fiction?
5) Bill Watterson created "Calvin and Hobbes," a comic strip featuring six-year-old Calvin
and his stuffed bear Hobbes. Fact or Fiction?
6) Watterson no longer draws "Calvin and Hobbes." Fact or Fiction?
7) Jim Davis created "Garfield," a comic strip featuring a large, lasagna-loving pig. Fact or
Fiction?

named Quincy. Fact or Fiction?
