From mammoth malls to quaint mom and pops, area shoppers went hunting for deals
during the holiday weekend. The day after Thanksgiving marks Black Friday, a time to
work off those mashed potatoes and start stocking up on gifts for the season. We spent
the day with bargain hunters from Lutz to Zephyrhills. More profiles, page 16.

Aggie and Artie DeVirgilio of Land 0'
Lakes were at their last stop before home,
Franklin Jewelers in the Collier Commons
shopping center in Land O' Lakes. They
started shopping around 9:30 a.m. with
stops at Bealls, Office Depot and Target.
"It was crazy at Bealls! Lines were really
long,"Artie determined."Target was really
good." She was excited about saving around
$75 total at Bealls, and was especially proud
of a $24 savings on a wallet.

At Princess Boutique in the Van Dyke
Commons shopping center in Lutz, employ-
ee Lisa Miller was preparing for the
afternoon rush on Black Friday.According to
Miller, Black Friday
shoppers typically hit
the big store sales in
the morning, and
then get to the small-
er businesses in the
afternoon. The bou-
tique offers "unique
ladies apparel and ac-
cessories."


Michela and Chad Mollick ofWesley Chapel
don't normally shop Black Friday but were at
Home Goods in Lutz later on Friday morning
with their daughter Sophia, 22 months. Michela
explained, "We contemplated (Black Friday)
shopping before seeing lines.We drove byToys
"R" Us and Best Buy (Thursday) around 9 p.m.
and already saw long lines."They decided not to
try the early, early morning shopping.

Near Ulta Beauty in
the Grove at Wesley
Chapel, Mariah Samia of
Land O'Lakes was shop-
ping for Christmas gifts
for her three Chihuahuas
at PetSmart with her
mom. It was her first ex-
perience with Black
Friday shopping. They
had spent three hours at
Kohl's in Lutz and stood in a line that was all the
way to the back of the store.Why wait?
"I got a really pretty dress for Christmas!"
Samia said."It was a good deal: half price!"

Lutz Arts and

Crafts Festival

looks to rebound

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Lutz Arts and Crafts Festival organiz-
ers are hoping for nicer weather and a
larger turnout after a 2009 event where
attendance was less than half its normal
total.
An estimated 35,000 to 40,000 peo-
ple attend the two-day event each year,
making it the largest Hillsborough
County art fair after the GasparillaArt
Festival.
However, last year a combination of
bad weather on the first day and a new
$2 fee per vehicle to enter the park im-
posed by the Hillsborough Parks,
Recreation and Conservation
Department brought that number to
about 15,000. Edwina Kraemer, presi-
dent of the GFWC Lutz-Land O' Lakes
Women's Club, thinks the number will
rebound from last year's low turnout.
"It's a fabulous festival with a family-
friendly atmosphere," said Kraemer."It's
a great place to do your Christmas or
holiday shopping for everyone on your
list.There are people who sell toys and
clothes for babies, people who sell local
artwork, jewelry and other arts and
crafts things. If you need something for
someone you'll likely find it there and
the great thing is the artists there are
the people who made it.They don't buy
things and resell them."
The event, which is organized by the
women's club, is always the first week-
end in December, which is Dec. 4-5 this
year.Admission is free for the festival it-
self after the $2 to park. That money
does not go to anyone involved with
the event.
The club was not in charge of the
event back at the beginning, but has
been its organizer for the 31st time this
year.
"The festival started at the Old Lutz
School on (US) 41 and later moved to
the train depot across the street," said
Lutz resident Shirley Simmons, co-chair-

Toys for Tots needs help to spread holiday cheer


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Each year,Toys for Tots allows
thousands of needy children in
Pasco and Hillsborough counties
to have that moment of excite-
ment while opening presents
Christmas morning.
The need for the program
has become even greater in re-
cent years and East Pasco Toys
for Tots coordinator Bob Loring
did not want to run out of gifts
like the program did in 2002.
"That year at the Dade City
distribution we ran out of toys
early," Loring said."It broke my
heart that we could not assist
many of our folks. I still have
that nightmare from time to
time.


"We expect more requests for
assistance than ever before and I'm hoping
everyone will give something to help a child
have a Christmas," Loring continued."The
reasons are self evident. Bad economy, fore-
closes and layoffs are rampant throughout
our fair community."
The East Pasco chapter covers the en-
tire county east of US 41. Loring is
expecting 4,500 children to be registered
for help this year. The story is similar in
Hillsborough, where Sgt.Anton Spivey will
not be surprised if record numbers turn
out for help.
"The need is just so great right now," said
Spivey, Toys for Tots volunteer with the
Tampa chapter. "You hear from hundreds of
parents each day who want to make sure
their kids have something special on
Christmas."
Both volunteers are or were involved
with the Marines, which started the pro-
gram in 1947.
"I'm honored to have this opportunity to


TOT

assist our children in need," Loring said.
"What could be a higher calling? I firmly
believe that we need to mobilize the com-
munity around supporting our at-risk
children. I still firmly believe in the
American dream and I want all our kids to
at least have a shot at it. We can do this, and
in my view we must try."
Herb Roshell, coordinator for the Land
O' Lakes distribution site, fondly remembers
one parent who received a bike for her
child from the program.
"We'd been holding onto a bike at a
drive the year before last and wanted to
give it to someone who really needed
something special," Roshell said."Then one
lady came in and when we told her she
could take the bike for her child she could-
n't even speak. She just hugged us and
thanked us for 20 minutes because she
knew it would make her family's
Christmas."
Roshell also thanked the Interact Club at


How to help
Toys forTots will hold mailbox toy drives
on Saturday, Dec.4 to help collect enough
gifts for the thousands of children. It is the
largest drive for the program each year.To
donate to the cause, place new, un-
wrapped toys by a home mailbox and the
mail carrier will bring it to the nearest
chapter.All toys must be new and un-
wrapped to be accepted.

Land O' Lakes High for helping at the distri-
bution each year and also added a group of
Sunlake High students would help the
process this year.
In Hillsborough, registered families can


pick up their toys until Dec. 17
at 22 different locations. For in-
formation on registering or to
donate, call (813) 805-7020 or
S visit tampa-fl.toysfortots.org.
Pasco has five distribution
sites east of US 41, including
_ . Land O' Lakes,Wesley Chapel,
- Zephyrhills, Dade City and
Lacoochee.All toys will be dis-
tributed Dec. 17. Loring works
directly with the public schools
to identify the most needy chil-
i.z _dren and registers them.
For the children not in pub-
lic schools, Loring works
through Premier Community
Health Care, which handles
Pasco Medicaid families.
"I am confident that we are
assisting the most needy chil-
dren and families," Loring said.
"These counselors personally
know the families and the children. I like
our method very much and have great con-
fidence in this dandy partnership."
To find the nearest toy drop-off location
in Pasco or for more information, visit
www.toysfortotspasco.org.
Along with the toys, Loring has worked
to make a program called Food for Tots,
which gives food and other needed items to
the children along with toys. He does it with
the different name because the Marines
have a very specific goal for their program
and cannot divert from it.
"It's just like shopping without a cashier,"
Loring said of how the distribution works in
Pasco."At some of the stations, parents also
get to take socks and toothbrushes for the
kids.We also give out food to the parents.
They get frozen chickens with all the fixings
for a Christmas dinner."
To make any donations to the Food for
Tots, e-mail Loring at
redbobbin@tampabay.rr.com.

Like snowflakes, no two trees are alike


Tips for choosing a fresh
Christmas tree


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
Choosing a Christmas tree is pretty simple,right?
Well, that depends.
Do you want a Frasier fir or a Douglas fir? A blue spruce or
a Scotch pine. Maybe you're in the market for a white pine.
So, what's the difference?
Matt Marsh, who works at a tree lot on SR 54,just west of
Collier Parkway in Land O'Lakes, said"the best-selling tree" on
his lot is a Frasier fir. People tend to like the shape of the tree
and they have nice branches upon which to hang ornaments,
he said.
Douglas firs are bushier and have a nice fragrance, he said.
Blue spruces have a nice shape, but sharp needles.
And Scotch pines are quite durable, but have very little
scent, Marsh said.
In the end, it's generally boils down to customer prefer-
ence and the space they need to fill, Marsh said.
"Some people want a real skinny tree," Marsh said, while
others prefer plump trees.
Super large trees typically find a home at a church or hotel
or other place that needs to fill a big space, he said.
Prices can vary, too.
At his lot, the Scotch pines sell in the $30 range, while the
other trees generally go for about $10 a foot. However, Marsh
noted, prices are negotiable.
Christmas tree lots were just beginning to pop up around
northern Hillsborough and Central Pasco last week. No lots
were easily visible from the main roads in Zephyrhills, and
just one stand was going up on SR 54 near Interstate 75 in
Wesley Chapel.
A lot had been set up at Gaither High and also at the Seal
Swim School on North Dale Mabry Highway in Lutz.Another
lot was operating on North Florida
Avenue, just north of BearssAvenue.
Sales for fresh trees usually peak
around Thanksgiving and continue at a
good clip for the next couple of weeks,
Marsh said.
The trees at the lot where Marsh
works are trucked in from Michigan and
new shipments will come throughout the
season to replenish the supply.
When the trees arrive, they often still
have snow on their branches, Marsh said. .*.'
"Some have birds' nests in them." A look at a tree lot


Matt Marsh stands near some of the taller trees at the lot
where he works on SR 54 near Collier Parkway in Land
O' Lakes. The larger trees usually are purchased by
churches, hotels and other places with large spaces, he
said. (Photos by B.C. Manion)


The rush is on to find that perfect
Christmas tree - a time-old tradition for
many families, churches and businesses. If
you're in the market for a fresh tree,
these tips from the National Christmas
Tree Association may come in handy:
* Be sure you know what size (height
and width) you need before heading to
the retail lot.
* If you want to learn about the species of
trees that are popular in your area, browse
the National Christmas Tree Association's
website, www.realchristmastrees.org before
heading to the retail lot.
* Go to a retail lot that is well-lit and
stores trees in a shaded area.
* Ask the retailer when he or she gets
his or her trees.Are they delivered at
the beginning of the season, or do they
come in several shipments throughout
the season?
* Look for indicators of dryness or dete-
rioration such as excessive needle loss,
musty odor, discolored foliage or wrin-
kled bark.A good rule of thumb: If
you're not sure a tree is fresh, choose
another one. If none of the trees on the
lot look fresh, go shopping elsewhere.


Maintenance and safety tips
* Get a fresh cut on the trunk of the tree before leaving
the tree lot. A fresh cut will help the tree absorb water.
* Put your tree in a sturdy stand to keep it from toppling
over. Fill the base with water and replenish it frequently.
* Use a tree skirt to help make it easier to clean up the
needles that drop from the tree.
* Use only indoor lights on the tree.To prevent potential
fires, check for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare
wires, or loose connections. If a light string is damaged,
don't use it.Avoid overloading extension cords.
*Turn off tree lights and decorations when you go to bed
or leave the house.

Resident speaks out about transportation

Resident speaks out about transportation


Dear Editor:
I was reading the article on how the
transit plan was shot down by
Hillsborough and to me I think for good
reason. Light rail is not the answer, being
from New Jersey and all, the money they
spent on the light rail there is very under
utilized because it is too slow. I think a sys-
tem like the PATH that goes between New
Jersey and New York is more what we
need to bring commuters into Tampa and
off the roads.
Light rail still has a use, but to go from
sayThe Shops atWiregrass down Bruce B.
Downs and into Tampa would take an
hour with the stops. Light rail is very good
for in city, but it is not good for runs more
than 10 miles.


Maybe they want it to be different, but
the planning board should take a trip to
NewYork City and check out what they
did. Not saying everything in the tri-state
area works great, but they move a ton of
people by train. I think the people are
right to shoot down light rail. It is slow
and not the best option. It is looked at as
the cheapest option to get some kind of
mass transit going.
The board needs to rethink their plan
and think about a real elevated subway
style train that is faster and holds more
people; going to cost more, but let's do it
right the first time.

Planners contemplate more connected region


Three state studies focus on
Pasco, northern Hillsborough

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Rail systems have come to dominate the
conversation for public transportation in re-
cent months, but that is not the only way to
increase movement in Pasco and northern
Hillsborough counties.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is currently funding
three studies on transportation corridors in
conjunction with the Tampa Bay Area
Regional Transportation Authority (TBAR-
TA).The affected roads include:
-SR 54/56
-Veterans Expressway/Suncoast Parkway
-Bruce B. Downs Boulevard
The SR 54/56 corridor study began last
December and is scheduled to take two
years. Elba Lopez, FDOT's public transit/in-
termodal administrator for the area, said the
goal is to decide if the 30 miles between
Wesley Chapel and New Port Richey would
benefit from managed traffic lanes for ex-
press bus travel.
"Managed lanes just means lanes devoted
to buses and could also be used for carpool-
ers," Lopez said."That allows the buses to get
through during peak levels of traffic and so
they don't slow down traffic either.There
isn't a set number of stops or anything like
that yet.That corridor was identified as one
of the priority one areas by the Regional
Transportation Master Plan."
Lopez said some of the reasons the area
has been designated as priority one is the
number of people that travel the corridor
and the potential for growth in the coming
years.
The boundaries for the project are Bruce
B. Downs Boulevard, also known as CR 581,


to US 19.The study is being done by RS&H
at a cost of $500,000.
At this point, about 18 alternative plans
have been proposed for the corridor. Once
the more realistic ones are identified, FDOT
will discuss them with the various stake-
holders and the public.
In another study, the more than 100
miles of the Veterans Expressway/Suncoast
Parkway from Tampa to Inverness in Citrus
County is also being looked at for an ex-
press bus route with managed lanes.That
study, which comes in at a price of
$530,000, started very recently and is many
months from completion, according to
Lopez.
The last and most expensive study in-
volves Bruce B. Downs from SR 54 inWesley
Chapel south to the University of South
Florida, a stretch of about 50 miles.This proj-
ect has more than just buses as a potential
conclusion.
"That's looking at bringing possible
short-distance rail," Lopez said."It's just con-
ceptualizing it at this point. It's not like
tomorrow we'll be putting down rails or
anything like that, but it's looking at the pos-
sibility."
That rail study is only two months in and
comes in at a $1.7 million price tag.
Stops along a future rail route are also
not set, but stops in the area could include
the Grove at Wesley Chapel,The Shops at
Wiregrass and University Community
Hospital.
FDOT spokeswoman Kris Carson said
the public will be able to voice their opin-
ions and get more information on the
future of these corridors at later public
meetings.
Information on these three studies or
anything else related to the master plan is
available on the TBARTA website, wwwtbar-
ta.com.The public can give their opinions
and concerns there as well.

Community Hospital receives lab award


The clinical laboratory at Community
Hospital, the future Medical Center of
Trinity, has been awarded accreditation by
the College of American Pathologists (CAP)
based on a recent inspection. Leigh
Massengill, the hospital's CEO, is pleased to
join the 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories
worldwide.
"Receiving recognition from the College
of American Pathologists asserts that
Community Hospital maintains the highest


standard of healthcare quality to ensure that
patients receive accurate diagnostic test re-
ports through our clinical laboratory
services," Massengill said.
The CAP program began in the early 1960s
and is recognized by the federal government
as equal to or more stringent than the govern-
ment's own inspection program. During the
accreditation process, inspectors examine the
laboratory's records and quality control of
procedures for the preceding two years.


Wesley Chapel hospital moves forward


The Pasco County Development Review
Committee unanimously approved the plan
for the futureWesley Chapel Medical Center
Nov 18.
The facility will be the first full-service
hospital in Wesley Chapel and is expected
to break ground in the coming weeks. It will
be built on the east side of Bruce B. Downs
Boulevard just north of the intersection of
SR 56.
"The other commissioners and myself
expected it to be approved without any
problems, but you never know until it's
voted on," said Pasco commission chair-
woman Pat Mulieri. She then added,"It will
be important to the healthcare of our citi-


zens and will bring about 400 jobs too."
Now the commission will vote to give
final approval to the facility, provided no un-
expected problems arise.
The facility will open with 80 beds and
three stories, but is designed to easily add
up to six stories as the need develops. It will
include obstetrics, pediatrics and general
surgery, women's and men's services, ortho-
pedics, sports medicine and other services.
The Wesley Chapel hospital was original-
ly planned as a joint venture between the
Adventist Health System and University
Community Health, but the two merged in
September.

Wesley Chapel arts center offers enlightening entertainment


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

The patrons file in and find their seats.
The lights dim. The show begins at the
Pasco County Schools Center for the Arts at
Wesley Chapel.
On any given day the performance could
feature a magician, a saxophone player, bal-
let dancers or singers.
But these aren't just any entertainers.
The magician, Bradley Fields, has ap-
peared on international stages and uses
magic feats to promote mathematics skills
and problem-solving in his showed called
"MatheMagic."
The saxophone player, Eric Darius, is
Blue Note jazz musician who did a clinic to
help aspiring young musicians, in an addi-
tion to doing two performances.
The ballet dancers from DanzAmerica's
Project Inc., presented Tchaikovsky's classic
fairy-tale ballet,"The Nutcracker" and will do
an encore this year.The performances fea-
ture dancers from America's Ballet in New
Tampa. Performances are scheduled for Dec.
9-10 for Pasco County students and on Dec.
10-11 for the general public.
Numerous student performances occur
on the center's stage, including a recent
music concert by a group of 220 kinder-
garten through fifth-graders from
Connerton Elementary, under the direction
of music teachers Kristen Hillstrom and
Barbara Falkingham.
Those children are among students from
43 elementary, middle and high schools
from Land O'Lakes east to Zephyrhills, who
take advantage of the professional theater
located on the campus of Wesley Chapel
High School, 30651 Wells Road.
The center, which celebrates its 10th
year this year, offers incredible educational
opportunities for students, said Patrick L.
McDermott, the center's director.
The recent visit by Eric Darius offers a
prime example of the benefit that students

derive from the performing arts center,
McDermott said.
Not only did Darius wow the crowds
with his performances, he also did a clinic
with aspiring musicians from Charles S.
Rushe Middle School,Wesley Chapel High
School, Sunlake High School and Pine View
Middle School.
"Eric Darius is an amazing musician and
a fantastic showman," McDermott noted in
an e-mail following the musician's two
shows."Both the matinee student audience
and the evening public audience were
blown away by this fantastic concert."
McDermott also raves about Fields, the
performer who teaches mathematics
through magic.
Fields, who is set to appear at the center
again on Jan. 27, applauds Pasco County


Schools for giving students the opportunity
to learn through the arts.
Schools make a mistake if they focus
only on preparing students to take tests, at
the expense of the arts, said Fields, who, in
addition to being a magician is also a former
NewYork City school teacher.
"What makes a difference is real, live per-
formances," Fields said. "Nobody knows
where a kid is coming from, or where they
are going," he said,noting his show is intend-
ed to inspire kids and provoke them to think.
"I might have a 1,000 in a crowd," Fields
said."Maybe one or two will have their lives
completely turned around."
The Pasco County Schools Center for the
Arts offers an excellent venue for shows
both large and small, McDermott said. It can
handle virtually any show - but can't afford


to offer the more expensive Broadway
shows because it would take too many per-
formances to cover the costs.
Working out the schedule for the 927-
seat theater is like putting together a jigsaw
puzzle,he said. Last year, the center had 260
productions.
Every year, McDermott books between
12-15 professional groups to perform for
students, the general public, or both. The
shows come from places like Toronto,
London, Dallas, California, NewYork, Omaha
and other places.
"I think this is one of the jewels of the
Pasco County school district," McDermott
said.
The theater is well equipped. It has a 48-
by-35-foot stage, a 48-channel sound board, a
large dressing room and two smaller dress-
ing rooms for the production's principal
players. It has tall doors on the side of the
building to enable large sets to be moved in
and out.
Unlike most stages, which drop straight
down, this one has steps leading down into
the theater.That allows actors to walk out
into the audience and enables singers to use
the stairs as risers.
The stage is also used for special events,
McDermott said, noting music teachers
from Wesley Chapel, Seven Oaks and
Watergrass elementary schools put on a
Broadway Spectacular each year to raise
money for the schools.
"Their level of musicianship is amazing,"
said McDermott, who has a master's in
music composition and used to play trum-
pet in orchestras for Broadway musicals.
Besides providing performances for stu-
dents at a nominal charge, the center also
hosts public performances at much lower
prices than many other professional the-
aters, McDermott said.

ter, its upcoming schedule and ticket

BeBe is a studious girl
BeBe is a 10-year-old standard Pomeranian. She has a younger sister named Chloe
who is her favorite playmate. Chloe is much smaller at a more typical Pom size of 6
Ibs., so BeBe has to be very gentle with her. BeBe is very smart, pretty and friendly
to all who come to visit, but she is a born hunter. At a very early age she displayed
her nature as she was observed standing in the backyard with her right leg drawn-up
while pointing at birds walking on the ground. Since then, she has honed these skills
by lying still and studying the activities of the various animals that frequent her
domain. To prove her hunting prowess, she has proudly presented us with several
mourning doves and numerous lizards she has captured. BeBe is a proud member of
the Labadie family in Lutz - Pam, Denis, Jessica, Jon Paul and Danielle.

SON, from page 1
On his way back to spend the night
camping with his family, in a tradition James
had known his entire life, the 21-year-old
lost control of his 2007 Ford Charger. He
crashed into some trees and flipped, just
minutes from his family.
Emergency personnel had to cut open
the vehicle to free James from the wreckage.
The University of Central Florida student
was taken to Florida Hospital Zephyrhills,
where he was pronounced dead.
It sent the family's world reeling and
they've been trying to regain their footing
ever since.
"Burying your child is unreal," Linda said."It's
like an out-of-body experience. Completely.
Completely," she said."You need help."
She and her husband, Tim, got some
help, but they - along with Samantha and
Houston - still struggle with James' death.
"I still don't function right. There are still
some days that I can't get out of bed," Linda said.
She knows there are others who have
experienced the same kind of loss and pain.
That's why she decided to try to organ-
ize a candlelight vigil on Dec. 12 at the Lutz
Little League, in an event that coincides
with Worldwide Candle Lighting Around the
Globe.The Lutz event begins at 6 p.m.,with
the candle lighting at 7 p.m.
"It's worldwide and in every different
time zone," Linda said. "For one hour you
light a candle, so for 24 hours there will be a
candle lit for every child who has died."
Everyone is welcome to the vigil.Those
sharing the event don't have to be grieving
the loss of their own child - they can be
supporting someone else whose child has
died. And it doesn't matter how old the
child was when he or she died, or when the
death occurred, Linda said.
Time passes, but the grieving continues.
James' accident was a nightmare, said his
grandmother,June Cannon."We try to guess
and mostly we think it was a deer," she said,
speculating that he may have swerved to
miss hitting one."We don't know though."
They do know that alcohol did not play a

MD, FACP


role, Linda said, because an autopsy was per-
formed.
The force of the accident caused massive
internal injuries, June said."It crushed his
heart."
James was the kind of guy who was al-
ways going out of his way to help others,
Linda said.
He loved his sister and brother, she
added.
He cared so much about Samantha that
he would drive in from Orlando to watch
her do a three-minute cheerleading routine.
And, if James heard Houston was having a
problem with his Xbox, he'd drive to Land
O' Lakes to fix it.
He was well-loved, Linda said. More than
500 people turned out for his visitation.
Tim said he still misses James so much
that he periodically sends him text mes-
sages.
When James died, a lot of people didn't
know what to do, the couple said.
But some friends from the Lutz
Leaguerettes knew just the thing.
They built a sanctuary in the family's
backyard, with brick pavers, chairs, mature
palm trees and a fire pit - right in the spot
where James had dug his original fire pit.
"James loved fires," his grandmother said.
The friends who built the backyard oasis
had these words etched onto one of the
bricks:"James David, loving son & brother,
your flame will forever burn in our hearts."
A candlelight vigil, in memory of James,
and others like him, seems fitting.

What:Worldwide Candle Lighting vigil

passed away
Where: Lutz Little League, 770 Lutz-
Lake Fern Rd.
When: Sunday, Dec. 12 - 6 p.m. event

woman for the event."It moved to Lake Park
about 10 years ago.We'll have 260 vendors
and several spots we give 20 to local groups
for free.We're all full for vendors and even
have a waiting list in case people drop out."
The Lutz Patriots, Relay For Life and the
Boy Scouts are some of those who get free
spots.
Kraemer, who was the Lutz Guv'na in
2006, first learned of the event before be-
coming a club member.
"Friends told me about it," Kraemer said.
"We went and had a great time. It's kind of
hard to live in the area and have not heard
about it because of how big it has gotten.
It's fast becoming one of the largest in cen-
tral Florida."
Kraemer moved to Lutz from
Carrollwood six years ago. She is a retired
science teacher who taught at Gaither High
during its first year in 1984.
Simmons said there will be vendors from
Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Odessa,Wesley Chapel,
Zephyrhills, Dade City and New Tampa at
the event.
Land O' Lakes residentApril Demulia has
gone to the craft show for the last few years
and loves everything about it.
"I've lived in Michigan, New York and
Pennsylvania and this is the only place I've
seen a craft show as awesome as this one,"
Demulia said."It has anything you can think


andWalmart ... not looking for anything specif-
ic."Every year I say I'm not going to do it (Black
Friday shopping) again, but I do it anyway!
Sometimes you can get really good deals!"
Then, she went to Kmart and Radio
Shack and was home by 9 a.m. to get ready
to come in and work at her shop. She stated
that usually the big ticket items are already
gone when she gets to the larger retail
stores and admitted that,"The two-day sale
is better than the 5-11 a.m. sales."

of and prices are good for anyone.You've
got little crafts you can buy for a few cents
to expensive pieces of jewelry and artwork.
It has something for everyone, including
great food."
Vendors will be selling traditional and
not so traditional festival foods, such as bar-
becue, kettle corn, funnel cakes,
sandwiches,hot dogs, breakfast breads,ice
cream, and homemade baked goods.
Kraemer explained the Lutz festival has
three goals: to give the community a fun
local event, to give artists a place to display
and sell their products and for the club to
raise money to give back into the communi-
ty.
"Everything we collect from booth sales
will go to great groups in the community,"
said Kraemer."We give money to Boy and
Girl Scout troops, the Civil Air Patrol, to
youth scholarships, to the Lutz volunteer
fire department, to the Lutz (Branch) Library
and others."

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 arind DP D s I

"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-

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.

middle of
November. The first
cold front had come
and gone. The
weather was typical
Tampa perfect.
Highs in the upper
70s. No clouds and a
light breeze out of the north-northeast.
We'd had no significant rain in over a
month and a half, so the water conditions
and visibility were great. Peter and I set out
from Tarpon Springs with a new set of
numbers and no curfew.
I had seen my buddy Ray Odor earlier
in the week to get a new stringer and got
to talking to him, telling him where we
were going that weekend.The man was in
a good mood and, as I was leaving, he
looked at me with a grin and said,"Do you
want a number?" Having tried and tried to
get a few coordinates out of the old master
before, without success, I jumped at the
offer. "Come on in," he said as we sat down
and he booted up his computer to find us
a spot.
Heading out towards Pedestal Rock, the
barges were on the way so we decided to
roll-over on a couple of them before head-
ing out deeper. As I hit the 68 degree
water and surface for my spear gun, I tell
Peter,"Thank God for wetsuits," before de-
scending.
The first barge I dropped on was pretty
well decayed.A few struts and plates and a
lot of fish. I watched a few legal-sized
grouper swim off and bagged a nice
Sheepie and a Hog Snapper before coming
up to let Peter take a look. Before I came
up, I saw what I thought, at the time, to be
a pretty nice sized goliath grouper, or jew-
fish, as they used to be called. It was about
five feet long.
After Peter came up, we motored over
towards a second barge, but before we got
there, a huge mass popped up on the bot-
tom-feeler and, with the water as clear as it
was, we could see that we were sitting on
something big. It was another, newer
barge. From the surface it looked like a tall
mound of white rocks or shells. But when
we dropped on it, we found that the
"shells" were actually millions, or even bil-
lions, of shiny threadfins and other baitfish,
massing around the barge.


I followed Peter in and, as I swam near-
ly blindly through the masses of baitfish, I
kept hearing a "WHOMP" sound.As I ven-
tured into the barge's midsection in hopes
of getting out of the cloud of bait and
maybe finding a decent sized fish, I startled
one of the biggest goliaths I had ever seen.
I say I startled it, but let me tell you, it
more than startled me.
I found that it, and its brethren, were
the source of the "WHOMP" sound. The
fish are so big, and they can displace so
much water, when they are feeling "territo-
rial," they pump their swim-bladder and
cause a"sonic boom" under water.
There were no fewer that 10-12 of
those giants on that wreck.The five-foot
one we had seen at the other barge must
have been a baby that had wandered off
from the family picnic, because all of these
were at least six feet and up to eight or
more feet long. And they were every-
where! Every time we got too close to
one, we would hear and feel the
"WHOMP' as they maneuvered out of our
path.
Peter and I worked the wreck for
awhile, taking turns running into the gi-
ants at all parts of the structure until we
decided to surface. Once on board the
boat, our eyes wide with wonder, all we
could do was shake our heads in disbelief.
Finally Peter put it into words that seemed
to do it justice. He said, "That was like
Jurassic Park, man!" Indeed. Those crea-
tures seemed like dinosaurs, each one
outweighing us by several hundred
pounds.
This was only the second time I'd dove
with fish bigger than me. The first time
was at Disney's Living Seas at Epcot and
there I felt safe in the perimeter of an
amusement park.This was no amusement
park. [Very large goliath grouper have
been observed to stalk divers and even
conduct unsuccessful ambushes. Large in-
dividuals of this species should be treated
with caution.]
A couple of decades ago, they said jew-
fish, or GG, were on the brink of
extinction.Well, from what I've seen, the
species has made a great rebound. And,
just like alligators, I think they've come
back enough to be reminded of who sits
at the top of the food chain. Because
grouper is grouper. And no matter what
you call it, it's good eats!

On Q offers barbeque and more in St. Leo


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

A wrap-around porch and the sweet
smell of barbecue smoke invite passersby
on SR 52 to take a brief detour and grab a
bite to eat at On Q Smokehouse Grill.
Linda Bailey, who lives between St. Leo
and Dade City, has
been enjoying the ,
foods prepared by
Willie Flott ever .
since he set up his
mobile business on
the vacant lot next
to the wood-frame
house in St. Leo
about a year ago.
Flott set up the |I
temporary shop to
get to know the
community and to
find out whether
there was a de-
mand for the kind On Q Smokehouse G
of food he serves, ful wood-frame house
which is primarily, (Photo by B.C. Maniol
but not exclusively,
barbecue.
When Flott found the community was re-
ceptive to his offerings, he decided to rent
the house at 33030 SR 52 and do some ren-
ovations to get it ready for his business.
Bailey is glad Flott decided to settle in.
"I was one of his first customers," Bailey
said. She enjoys his barbecue chicken, his
greens, his catfish and pork tenderloin - but
she's simply wild about his fried green
tomatoes.

"I really haven't had them like this since
my mom made them for me when I was a
girl," Bailey said."That was a long time ago."
Paul Brenot and Marcia Stone shared a
meal there recently, when one of the spe-
cials that day was a Fried Green Tomato BLT.
Stone said she enjoyed the fried green
tomatoes and found the bacon to be smoky
and meaty. Brenot
I reveled in the
restaurant's atmos-
phere.
"I love sitting

said."The weather

Flott said he

n the edge of St. Leo. "I personally
thought the porch
was my biggest
selling point," Flott
said. He thinks it creates a welcoming ambi-
ence and lures patrons - especially when
the building is lit after dark.
Flott said he prepares his barbecue by
rubbing a mixture of spices onto the meats
and cooking them over charcoal on custom-
built championship smokers.
"We don't put any sauces on anything.
We want the customer to taste the flavor of
the meat," he said.


Customers can choose from a variety of
sauces, including one concocted by Flott.
The sauce, which has a mustard base, is also
available by the bottle.
The menu includes sandwiches and
burgers, salads, appetizers, platters, kids'
meals, beer, wine, coffee, tea and soda.
Besides fried green tomatoes, appetizers
include asparagus fries, corn nuggets, fried
pickles, fried mushrooms and chicken
wings.
The restaurant also sells bulk items and
offers catering.

and other gatherings.
The name of the restaurant is a play on
the phrase, "on cue," which is how Flott
wants to serve up his food - prepared
properly and served right on time to satisfy
his customers.
The restaurant is open seven days a
week, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday

Gators look to end district championship drought


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

It only seems like the Land O' Lakes High
girls soccer team has always made the play-
offs.
The Gators (4-2-2) have reached the post-
season each year since 2000, but have not
won a district title since 2003, the same year
they won the Class 2A state championship.
The 2010-11 version has 13 seniors who are
ready to bring home a district crown.
"We all want this to be our best year and
a district championship is one of our goals,"
said senior defender Natalie Fontanes."We
want to do everything we can to go far and
to have no regrets at the end.We're looking
to go out with a bang."
The team that has stood in Land O'
Lakes' path the last five seasons has been
River Ridge High.The Knights have won the
district title at the Gators expense each of
those years and have gotten off to a 7-2
mark including a 3-0 win at Land O' Lakes.
The two teams will face off again in New
Port Richey Dec. 13.
"They've been that barrier for us," said
senior midfielder Alexis Villar."Hopefully we
can get past them this year."
Senior defender Brittany Nieves added of
River Ridge,"They've been tough the last
bunch of years.They're a good team, but we

King said. "We only have

ble that this year. I expect
a lot out of these players
and they should think the

that's not what gives us the best chance to senior Kala Robinson has a

Senior defender Keke
Potts enjoys King's tough
approach to coaching. King
also coaches Potts with the
Fusion Futbol Club of
Tampa Bay, which mainly
plays out of fields in New
Tampa.
"I've had her as a coach
for years," Potts said."She's
basically the only coach I've
ever had. She's tough, but
only because she sees the
potential in you even if you
can't see it yourself. She
helps you play your best."
The Gators defense has
allowed 12 goals through
their first eight games, a


team-high five goals, followed by freshman
Brooke Silvest's three andVillar's two.
Villar made the All-Sunshine Athletic
Conference (SAC) first team last season in
part because of her versatility. She can also
play forward or defense at any point and has
worked hard during the summer to try and
make the team again.
"It was really surprising to make the first
team last year,"Villar said."I can't take the
credit though because my team is so good.
They're the only reason I made the team."
In addition, the Gators soccer team has
several standout players from fall sports.
Junior Alyssa Lonsway was one of the top
runners for the Land O' Lakes cross country
team and has a pair of assists in soccer. On
the volleyball court, Morgan Crescent was
named the 2010 SAC player of the year.
"I think that shows that we have very
good athletes," King said."Now we just have
to bring it all together and hopefully we'll
be able to add to the banners in the gym."
The Gators had a game at Hernando
High Nov. 29, but results were not available
by press time. Land O' Lakes travels to play
Wiregrass Ranch High Dec. 1 after the junior
varsity contest.


Defender Keke Potts is coached by Vicky Morgan Crescent was named the all Sunshine Athletic
Potts on both the Land O' Lakes and her Conference volleyball Player of the Year this season and is
club team. also a goalkeeper and midfielder on the soccer team.

Witkowski picks Eastern Michigan
Steinbrenner High senior pitcher and first
baseman Chad Witkowski signed Nov. 16 to
play at Eastern Michigan University, according
toWarriors coach John Crumbley.
"They were very impressed with him as a
hitter, but I feel they will look at him pitching
also with the numbers that he had last year,"
Crumbley said. "The signing of Chad to a
Division I school in our first senior class is a
testament to his hard work, both academically
and athletically, and hopefully the other student
athletes in the future will strive for the same."
Witkowski, 6-foot-3, I85-pounds, batted
.481 with 24 RBI, 20 runs scored and nine
homeruns last year.As a pitcher he had an 8-1
record with a 2.16 earned run average and 44
strikeouts as a junior.

Pirates run over by Jefferson's ground game


Pasco County's playoff

dreams end

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

In the battle of the unbeatens,Jefferson
High came out on top over Pasco High 41-
14 in the Class 3, Region 2 semifinals Nov.
26 in Tampa.


The Pirates (11-1) entered the contest av-
eraging more than 43 points per game, but
were limited to just two touchdowns both
coming in the fourth quarter. Despite the
27-point loss, Pasco coach Tom McHugh
wants the players to understand how diffi-
cult it is to reach the second round of the
playoffs.
"Over the weekend, (the players are)
going to hear a lot of garbage from people,"
McHugh said. li;ll thcrc were 16 teams play-
ing tonight and we were one of
them. We just happened to draw
(Jefferson)."
On that Dragons (12-0) team is
senior quarterback Quentin Williams,
who set the state record for career
passing touchdowns with his first
score to RamikWilson in the second
quarter.The 40-yard strike gave him
101 in high school, besting Will
Indianos' mark set in 2008 at
Gainesville's Oak Hall High.Williams
added another passing score later in
the game.
Despite having a record-setting
passing attack,Jefferson's game plan

Pasco quarterback Jacob Guy and
the Pirates offense was limited to 14
points against Jefferson, all coming
i in the fourth quarter.


was to keep the ball on the ground.Williams
attempted just 18 passes, completing 10 for
139 yards.
"They have some of the best (defensive
backs) I've played against," Williams said.
"They rush the passer with their D-line, so
we knew if we kept running the ball we'd
break a couple."
The Dragons racked up 251 rushing
yards and three rushing scores.
"We're not as pass-heavy as people
think," said Jefferson coach Mike Fenton."It
may appear like that, and that's kind of a
good thing. I hope they keep thinking that."
Pasco's high-powered spread offense was
kept in check, gaining 244 yards but cashing
in with just two touchdowns. Both scores
came by the pass.Junior quarterback Jacob
Guy connected with senior wide receiver
Hakeeme Ishmar for a 44-yard touchdown
and later found junior wide receiver Trey
Dudley-Giles for a nine-yard score.
Guy entered the second playoff game of
his career with 25 touchdowns to eight in-
terceptions, but the Dragons picked him off
three times.
"Sometimes you have to face the giant,"
McHugh said."These guys are proud.They
don't like to get beat like that. I think you're
going to see seven or eight of their guys
playing on Saturdays. I always like to look at
it like,'I played that kid, I played that kid.'
When that happens all on the same team,

it's bad for you."
Pasco's elimination ends any state cham-
pionship hope for the county's 13 public
schools.
The Pirates did win their fourth straight
district championship this year, all with
McHugh as the coach. Pasco will lose 21
seniors this offseason, but will likely return
key players like Guy, Dudley-Giles, running
backs David Emmanuel and Janarion Grant
and defensive lineman CornellWilson.

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi



When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said they would try
to make this right. But how was an energy company going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the cleanup.
They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they worked with all kinds
of people here from fishermen and shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped
us keep our businesses open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could
support our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all relieved. But
would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches are clean and we're back on
the water fishing so things are getting a whole lot better. They are still here and
have said they will keep working for as long as it takes.


Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you still need
help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're wondering what you
can do, well - the next time you're shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood.
There is none finer.
