got married Thanksgiving weekend in
California, but they are still planning a
more traditional ceremony in Lutz this
month. They met in the Marine Corps.


Young Marines hope

for help with wedding

By Elizabeth Gwilt
Laker Correspondent

Call it young love, but 21-year-old Land
O' Lakes native Errol Keith and his new
wife, 20-year-old Krystallyn Taylor, insist
they are in it for the long run.The couple
is in the Marine Corps and plan on serv-
ing their country in the upcoming years.
Keith and Taylor make their relation-
ship work even when they're separated.
"Trust and understanding is key," said

Local churches get in the Christmas spirit


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Shopping, office parties and gatherings
with friends aren't the only things happen-
ing during the holiday season - special
events also are being offered at various ven-
ues throughout northwest Hillsborough,
Central Pasco and Eastern Pasco County.
At the Church of the Latter-Day Saints in
Odessa, three modern-day carpenters were
working out under a hot afternoon sun last
week, sawing wood, drilling screws and align-
ing walls in a quest to create the city of
Bethlehem for a live nativity event.
When the crews are finished, visitors will
be able to walk through a scene that
harkens back to more than 2,000 years ago
at "A Night in Bethlehem, a Live Nativity" at
7851 Lutz Lake-Fern Road.
About 100 people are involved in the an-
nual effort. Some transform the field on the
east side of the church into the city of
Bethlehem, complete with shops, inns and a
stable. Others assume roles in the nativity, or
help with the logistics of putting on the
event.
Those attending the event will be asked


to sign the "census" as they enter the city of
Bethlehem.At the gate, they'll be asked to
pay their taxes - a can of nonperishable
food that will be donated to Metropolitan
Ministries.
Once inside the city, visitors will find a
gift shop, a carpenter's shop, a pottery shop,
a bakery, a candle shop and a Hebrew
school.
Kids will be able to play with a dreidel,
learn to write their names in Hebrew and
sample some pita bread, dried fruit, oranges,
olives and cheese.
The spectators will see a depiction of
Mary and Joseph looking for a place for
stay, said Marilyn Thompson, a volunteer
who pitches in each year on the project.
Mary will arrive on a horse, and she and
Joseph will be turned away by the innkeep-
ers. One innkeeper will allow the couple to
stay in a stable.
Near the stable, shepherds will tend their
sheep and three kings from the Orient will
come to pay homage to the baby Jesus.
Music will accompany the various
scenes at the live nativity.
Presentation of the live nativity will hap-
pen every half-hour, beginning at 6:30 p.m.,


with the final presentation beginning at
8:30 p.m.
Free refreshments will be served in the
church.The event is scheduled nightly, Dec.
9-12.
In another Christmas celebration,
Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church, on North
Dale Mabry Highway,just north of Van Dyke
Road, will be hosting "A Home Town
Christmas," a dramatic musical presentation.
Senior Pastor KenWhitten and his daugh-
ters, Kim Whitten and TanaWhitten Knouse,
wrote the script for the production, which
includes a 300-voice adult choir, 75-piece or-
chestra and 125-voice student chorus.The
cast is an ensemble of about 20 members.
The production, which runs about two
hours, establishes a setting, creates a sense
of connection with the audience and deliv-
ers a spiritual dynamic, said Ron Upton, the
church's minister of music and worship and
producer and director of this show.
Hundreds of people spend countless
hours to pull off the annual event, Upton
said."It's a major undertaking."
This year's event is at 7 p.m. nightly, Dec.
10-12.

Annual Breakfast with Santa makes 14th appearance


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

In Lutz, the holiday season does not offi-
cially start until Santa stops by the Old Lutz
Schoolhouse for breakfast.
For the last 14 years, local residents have
organized Breakfast with Santa, which is al-
ways the second Saturday in December so it
does not conflict with the Lutz Arts and
Crafts Festival.This year the event is Dec. 11
from 8:30-11 a.m. at the schoolhouse, 18819
US 41 in front of Lutz Elementary.
"It started when we stopped doing the


haunted house at the school," said Phyllis
Hoedt, one of the directors of the Lutz-Land
O' Lakes Women's Club and a committee
member of the Citizens for the Old Lutz
Schoolhouse."It was a way to say thank you
to all the people who helped put that event
on and to the community for coming. We
knew we wanted to keep doing something
at the schoolhouse so we came up with this."
The group did the haunted house for
about 20 years, until it was deemed a fire
hazard.
Old St. Nick poses no such danger.
Children will get to meet Santa himself


and parents can take their own pictures.The
continental breakfast is $2 and also includes
crafts for the kids and a tour of the school-
house, which will be decorated for the
holiday season. Once decorated, it is known
as the Christmas house.
"It's just a great morning with the family,"
said BillWestcott, commander of the North
Tampa-Lutz Squadron and committee mem-
ber of the citizens group."People come out
and have a lot of fun with Santa and it's be-
come a tradition here."
Hoedt said the money goes to support

When kidney failure is a blessing in disguise


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Many high school students dread getting
up and going to class, but for Brittany
Hutchinson the day she can do the same
will be one of her sweetest.
She has been homeschooled since she
received a kidney transplant Aug. 25. Before
that, the 17-year-old was attending Wiregrass
Ranch High.
"My doctor said I should be able to go
back in January, but I'll need to wait until
the end of flu season," said Brittany, a senior.
"I'm taking immune (system) suppressors
so my body doesn't reject the kidney and I
have to wear a surgical mask most of the
time so I don't get sick.
"It's been hard," Brittany said of the re-
covery. "I haven't been able to go to school
or hang out with my friends. Of course, I'm
glad to have this kidney.I'm living life again."
Brittany had suffered from extremely
high blood pressure since age 8 and was on
medications to treat it, but her health started
declining while on a trip to Washington D.C.
inAugust 2009. She became very tired, had
chest pains and was retaining water while
losing her appetite.
She had several tests, the last being on
her electrolyte levels. Her doctor told her
she had the readings of a dead person and
had only 11 percent kidney function.
Brittany had end-stage renal failure and

had to use a dialysis machine each night for
eight to nine hours. Four bags of a sugar-
water solution would be pumped through a
tube into her and back out to clean her body
from the waste her kidneys left behind.
"It was so unexpected because as far as
we know we don't have any history of
something like this," said Debbie
Hutchinson, Brittany's mother.
"It was very frustrating to see your child


"This, in a way, has been a blessing to

her. This journey has changed her and

it's certainly not over, but now we are

very happy she is getting better."

in such rough shape," said Tony Hutchinson,
Brittany's father."A teenager who couldn't
go out with her friends because she has to
get home in time to go on dialysis."
The family was very impulsive before
Brittany's diagnosis. They would pack up
and go on trips with little planning just be-
cause they wanted to, but having to travel
with the machine and all of Brittany's sup-
plies made things more difficult.
"We bought our SUV just so we had the
space to take everything,"Tony said."Once
you have 10 boxes of the big bags you don't
have much room for anything else."
Brittany had to use the machine for
about a year.The call she had been praying
for finally came at 12:20 a.m. Aug. 25.
Doctors at Tampa General Hospital had a
compatible kidney.
"It was a school night," Brittany said."At
first I thought it was a dream. I remember
the night before I told my mom I think


something amazing is going to happen.
When it happened, I had to pinch myself.
We all thought we were dreaming and my
dad thought it was a prank call because we
got it so late. I had to finish my treatment
that night before we went to the hospital."
Brittany had been praying to receive a
transplant before going to college. It would
have been hard for her to be on dialysis
while at school.
"The transplant couldn't have come at a bet-
ter time," Brittany said."Really, it was perfect."
Brittany still has to take several medica-
tions and limit the amount of salt she eats
and to stay healthy. She has been very disci-
plined with following her plan and has seen
improvement in her health.
"It's so much better now," said Mark
Hutchinson, Brittany's 13-year-old brother.
"Now we can stay up late and watch movies
again. Before she'd have to go to bed and be

She was only on the waiting list for a
kidney for two months, a very short time
according to Betsy Edwards of LifeLink.
The nonprofit organization is designated
by the federal government to handle the
logistics of and educate the public about
organ donations in the Tampa Bay area.
"Right now there are 109,000 peo-
ple on the national waiting list for an
organ and 70 percent of those are wait-
ing for a kidney," Edwards said."In some
cases it can take three to five years for
someone to get an organ that is a match
for them. It really is amazing to get one
after two months."
Brittany has become a youth
spokesperson for LifeLink and said she
wants to start a club atWiregrass Ranch
to educate students about becoming
organ donors when they get their driver's
licenses. She has also spoken at several
events to advocate for organ donation.
"One person who becomes an
organ donor can save up to 60 lives,"
Brittany said. She then added,"Going

through this has changed my whole
outlook on life. I wanted to be a lawyer,
but now I'm going to be a renal trans-
plant coordinator.What they do is make
sure people are ready on all levels for a
kidney transplant and go to schools to
talk about organ donation."
More information about organ dona-
tions and becoming a donor can be
found at www.donatelifeflorida.org or
by calling (800) 262-5775. In addition,
the Hutchinsons have many boxes of
supplies still sealed from when she was
on dialysis. The family said anyone is
welcome to the supplies if they are in
need and can reach them at teen-
voguebh@gmail.com.
While the last year has been very dif-
ficult for the family, things are much
better now. They were even able to
have a normal Thanksgiving dinner.
"This, in a way, has been a blessing
to her," Debbie said."This journey has
changed her and it's certainly not over,
but now we are very happy she is get-
ting better."

Collector keeps patchwork of Pearl Harbor memories


ByTammy Sue Struble
tstruble@cnewspubs.com

A woman who responded to a"We
Buy Military Photos, Uniforms" adver-
tisement helped Zephyrhills collector
John Bolender obtain some first-hand
memorabilia from a day that lives in
infamy in American history.
Chief Warrant Officer Clyde
Daughtry spent 27 years in the Navy,
according to the contents of his foot-
locker that Bolender now keeps at
East 54 Mini Storage in Zephyrhills,
where he has a room stuffed with mil-
itary memorabilia. On Dec. 7, 1941,
that former Naval photographer was
stationed at Pearl Harbor.When Japan
bombed that base 69 years ago this
week, Daughtry was three decks
below aboard the docked USS
Argonne. Some of his shipmates ran
below to inform him "we
were being attacked,' ac-
cording to his journal. a .
Daughtry hurried to
topside to see for him-
self, thinking it was a
"sham." It was no sham -
there was a "large splash
100 feet."(from him).
He ran below to get
his 16 mm film camera Navy Priva
together. Daughtry ex- Daughtry w

"We were taken so much off
guard," Daughtry wrote,"most of
the damage was done before
our guns got into action. The
(Japanese) flew so low, they
could be seen laughing at my
shipmates running on deck"
from the machine guns on their
planes.
Daughtry was able to film
over the last half of the attack as
it took him around 10-15 min-
utes to get his camera together.
When the day was done, the
Navy photographer turned over
his film to the Navy. His footage
was one of few films of the at-
tack. For years, Clyde tried to
locate the original films and get
credit for his photography that Jo
day. The Navy re- No
searched and L.
confirmed his films No
had existed; howev-
er, they were unable t(
locate the originals.
In 1983, th,

sent Daughtry a letter o

Eastside 8 stepping up effort to feed area youth


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Last year, the Eastside 8 Rotary clubs
helped 300 needy families have a special
holiday dinner and additional support will
allow them to do much more in 2010.
The eight Rotary clubs on the east side
of Pasco County came together last winter
to make food bags that were distributed
through the public elementary and middle
schools to those who most need them.
"We first decided to do this because we
thought we could help a few kids, but the
more we've gotten into it, the more people
we learned need this kind of help," said
Randy Gailit, Land O' Lakes club board mem-
ber. "You think in a place like our
community you're immune to poverty, but
that is just not true."
In fact, 53 percent of the children in
county public schools receive free or re-
duced priced lunches, according to Pasco
School District spokeswoman Summer
Romagnoli.These are the children who are
given the food baskets.
"One of the things that I like about the
program is it helps the kids while keeping it

dent Mike Waters, which will be used to help feed needy children. (Photo by Gary Hatrick)


kind of anonymous," said Ben Alexander,
president-elect of the Rotary Club of Wesley
Chapel."We give the food to the schools and
they get it to the kids who need it the most
just before they leave for the winter break.
We're pretty sure the schools are only going
to give it to the families that need it."
The food in the bags will mainly be non-
perishable items like canned ham and
vegetables, boxed mashed potatoes and ce-
real. There will be enough food to feed a
family of five for a couple of nights.
Gailit said the groups first decided to join
together in the effort because of having
strength in numbers.They are able to pool

their resources and buy in bulk, allowing
them to buy the food at a discounted rate.
The Eastside 8 put together 300 food
baskets last holiday season and matched
that number before the summer break earli-
er this year.The group's actions have been
deemed worthy enough for a $3,000 grant
from Rotary International, according to
Gailit. Each basket cost about $11, so the do-
nation will allow the Eastside 8 to almost
double their food gifts.
Also donating to the cause is Wade
Thomas, owner of Thomas and Son car deal-
ership in Zephyrhills. Thomas is giving
$1,000 for the drive as a way to support the
community his business has served for
more than 40 years.
"I've always believed in helping people
and this is a great way to make sure the kids

get help,"Thomas said."I've done it before,
but was only able to help 40 or so families.
With Rotary, we can help 100 families right
here in Zephyrhills. We think it's just the
right thing to do."
Thomas also encourages others to give
to the drive.
"It doesn't matter if you give $1 or
$1,000 as long as it is going to the right
place,"Thomas said.
Gailit said right now the group has
enough money to make about 700 food
bags, but the goal is to help 1,000 families.
"Anyone who wants to help should get
in touch with us," Gailit said. "We will be
packing up the food on Saturday, Dec. 18 at
Shepard Park in Zephyrhills, so we'd need
the donations before then say byWednesday
the 15."
The food will be given to the area
schools later in the week. For more informa-
tion on the food drive or the Eastside 8, visit

ple can contact their local group to make
donations.

Name withheld to protect the innocent


What I need is a good defense
'Cause I'm feeling like a criminal
-Fiona Apple

By Randall Grantham

While my job is
not exactly thankless,
it can be tiresome
and frustrating. I
mean, I represent
people accused by
the government of
committing a crime
against the "peace
and dignity of the state of Florida."
All the power and money of the state
can be marshaled and used to convict my
poor client, who usually has only me and
the benefit of the supposed presumption
of innocence.That and a dollar might get
you a cup of coffee.
Defense attorneys have sometimes been
said to be like a crawdaddy on the railroad
tracks.Your job is to throw the run-away train
off the tracks. Usually you get squashed, but
occasionally, that train will roll over.
When I represent people who are
wrongfully accused, and that does happen
more often than you would like to think,
they are righteously indignant and some-
times resent having to even hire an attorney
for something they did not do.And when I
successfully represent someone who has
committed some peccadillo, more often
than not they are back to see me in awhile,
having failed to learn from the first incident.
If there was a crime on the books
called criminal stupidity I could easily re-
solve a boatload of cases.
But there are bright spots and times of
satisfaction that I don't think any other job
can offer. I had one of those the other day.
I had been seeing a group of profession-
als on an extended piece of business and had


dealings with several different members of
the office.They were all very talented in their
field and good at what they did. However,
there was one member of this group who
seemed especially well suited for the job.
I would try to work my schedule around
this person's in order to deal with them in-
stead of another member of the firm.After
finalizing our business recently, I closed out
my account and bid everyone their good-
bye and thanked them for their help. But as
I left the office, the one person who I had
thought to be the best there followed me
out and approached me as I got to my car.
This person reached out to shake my
hand again, but before I could say anything,
he/she said, "I want to thank you." As my
brow furrowed in curiosity, this person went
on to explain that, although I didn't remem-
ber, I had represented him/her years before.
Where other attorneys had blown off
the situation, I had taken the time to listen
and take the case seriously. Not only that,
he/she told me, but I had been victorious
in the case and, even though they were in-
nocent, they greatly appreciated what I
had done.
In fact, they told me, if it hadn't been
for me and the job I had done for them,
they would not be able to be in the posi-
tion that they now held, doing what they
loved and did so well in my opinion.
Goose bumps! That's what I felt.
Every now and then, if you're lucky, you
get some affirmation that you do make a
difference in peoples' lives. This person
had just done that for me.

Publix employee Marc Jean Philippe of Land O' Lakes helps Betsy Altshuler and Stu Graff
load peanut butter into the vehicle. (Photo by Glenn Gefers of www.photosby3g.com)

Land O' Lakes woman's wise shopping helps those in need


By Glenn Gefers
www.photosby3g.com


Continuing an annual ritual, Betsy
Altshuler, a Land O' Lakes resident and board
member of theAmerican Culinary Federation,
stopped recently at the SR 54/Collier Parkway
Publix Land O' Lakes to take advantage of its
buy-one-get-one peanut butter sale.
But she wasn't just looking for a good
deal for herself.
She ordered 15 cases of creamy peanut
butter - a tall order that will benefit
dozens of families in the community. By col-
lecting donations and being frugal,Altshuler
was able to purchase 180 jars of peanut but-
ter that will make their way into the
cupboards of those in need.


After leaving Publix, Altshuler went to
the Suncoast Harvest Food Bank on Ehren
Cutoff to donate her trunk full ofJif - plus
other items. Her donation totaled 543
pounds.
Elizabeth Fields, executive director of
Suncoast, processes many dropoffs each day
from people just likeAltshuler.The organiza-
tion will top 3 million pounds in donations
this year.
Suncoast has 10 employees and about 10
volunteers, including one 86-year-old who
faithfully helps out each week.
From the warehouse, Suncoast distrib-
utes to more than 100 shelters, soup
kitchens and pantries. For more information
about Suncoast, visit www.suncoasthar-
vest.org or call (813) 929-0200.

Children are clever- they are our equals.
We shouldn't talk down to them, but look across at them.
Books should be friendly, and as much like magnets as possible....


They should promote wondering.
They should be better than good.

CHRISTMAS, from page 1
Tickets are available at www.idlewild.org,
or may be purchased at the door.They sell
for $12, $10 and $8 each.
Visitors to Richland Baptist Church in
Zephyrhills can travel back in time at the
church's 16th annual presentation of"The
Walk Through Bethlehem."
Each year volunteer crews transform a
patch of land near the church - roughly a
third of the size of the ancient city of
Bethlehem - into a city that feels like it is
part of the first century town where the
baby Jesus was born, said Roger Denis, a vol-


unteer with the construction crew.
Those taking the walk will be guided on
a tour through the reconstructed city.
As visitors make their way through city,
they'll hear a conversation between their
guide and the various shopkeepers, as the
story of the birth of Christ is told, and then
they will see a live Nativity scene.
The event is scheduled for 6-10 p.m.
Friday, Dec. 10; 6-10 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11;
and 6-9 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12.The church is
at 40443 Stewart Road, about halfway be-
tween Dade City and Zephyrhills.Admission
and parking are free.

WEDDING, from page 1
Keith. Taylor adds, "Plenty of phone calls,
Skyping and visits whenever we can man-
age it keep us strong."
Keith grew up in the Land O' Lakes area
where his mother still lives, while Taylor's
family hails from Georgia. Both are currently
in California for school.
A six-month courtship followed after the
couple met at a language institute in Monterrey,
and led to their engagement inAugust.
Keith andTaylor are studying to become lin-
guists, and have committed to at least three
years of service. Keith is expected to be de-
ployed to Afghanistan in the spring, and Taylor
hopes to follow her husband, but she adds that
nothing - even the guarantee of being de-
ployed together - is ever certain in the military
That's why the couple got married Nov.
26 in an intimate ceremony, just in case
something unexpected prevented them
from being wed before getting deployed.
They're "getting married" again in a more tra-
ditional affair, Dec. 18 in Lutz.
"Getting married that Friday was a pre-
caution,"Taylor said."We are not going to let
the military put our wedding on hold.We
are looking forward to the wedding with
family and friends though."
Keith and Taylor are finding the wedding
planning to be difficult, as Marines and stu-
dents they don't get paid much, and Taylor
says that money is tight.
"I make basic pay, a couple hundred
bucks, nothing luxurious," she said.
Their financial situation, along with their
dedication to the country, compelled others
to begin helping the couple by donating
services and items like flowers and food.
Keith's mother, Michele, took the lead on

organizing the wedding. She received plen-
ty of support from her friends, including
lone James and Janice Karski.
Karski is paying for Taylor's hair appoint-
ment, and James, who has made the groom's
birthday cakes since he was a child, is mak-
ing the wedding cake herself.
"They are just like so many other cou-
ples, everyone is struggling nowadays,"
James said."The fact that they are putting
their lives on the line for us made me all the
more determined to help."
The newlyweds say that they are ex-
tremely grateful to their families and friends.
"We appreciate it so much, everything
they've done it going to make our day that
much better.There were a lot of things we
couldn't do ourselves,' the groom said.
Taylor feels the same way,"Those amaz-
ing people can expect big hugs and
thank-yous coming their way," she said.
The more traditional wedding to in-
cludes the couple's families and friends is
taking place next week, but there is still a
much to be done. Candles, a photographer,
plates and cutlery are items that are yet to
be purchased on their limited budget.
She adds,"They are great kids with good
heads on their shoulders. Even though they
are young, they know what they want from
life, and they love each other. Being brave
marines just makes them all the more ad-
mirable."

including nights of singing holiday songs.

Bottomless fries won't keep you bottomless
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
Possibly the best
thing about eating
out is being able to
try and enjoy so
many different
things, but embark-
ing on that
adventure too often
can set you up on a
road of frustration with your health and
your weight.
You have to make an effort of ordering
smart and modifying the dishes to cut
down on calories, just as the case is in this
newly-opened restaurant I recently
checked out, Red Robin at The Shops at
Wiregrass . Ordering real smart is what
you have to do at Red Robin.
One thing they flaunt is their "bottom-
less fries." Ha! Eat those often and you
certainly won't be "bottomless," I tell you!
French fries are among the restaurant foods
with the highest calorie content even
though they used to be my favorite food. It
is rather sad to be offering and boast-
ing about these bottomless fries,
considering the obesity of our coun-
try.
On a good note, they do offer
some great options, helping you to
choose wisely. You can request
whole grain buns when you order
any sandwich. They are known for
gourmet hamburgers and I like a
hamburger every once in a while,
but hardly order it in restaurants
since I know I can cook hamburg-
ers at home for 90 percent less fat.
Since I've been used to these
healthier hamburgers if I eat one
out they don't taste as appetizing;
they're just way too greasy That
sounds ironic coming from an ex-
food addict who used to gobble up This
greasy, fattening food. So instead I whicl


got something I haven't had in a long
time, a Gardenburger.
Now if you have never had one, don't
knock it until you try it just the way I or-
dered it because it was actually delicious!
These are the things I did to make it a
healthy and great-tasting meal: I ordered
the Gardenburger with a whole grain bun,
had the mustard sauce on the side since I
didn't know how much fat was added to it,
added a slice of Mozzarella cheese with
sauteed mushrooms and onions and substi-
tuted a refreshing salad for those fattening
fries.The trick is to tell them to use a very
light amount of oil on those sauteed veg-
gies. If you want to be really disciplined,
eat the salad and only half of the sandwich.
You will be satiated and pleased, knowing
that you made a healthier decision that you
shall be happy with later.
Red Robin also has a location at the
Citrus Park mall.
For more information, on healthy or-
dering, visit Samantha Taylor's blog at

Gardening wish list


By B.J. Jarvis
Pasco Extension Horticulture Agent

This year, I am making a little different
holiday wish list for what I hope to find
under the tree. Instead of the typical stuff,
I've decided to focus on my garden.
I'd love to have a couple pounds of com-
posting worms that would transform my
kitchen scraps into nutrient-laden humus to
improve poor garden soils.Adding this rich
material to planting holes or top-dress on
soil surface will improve water retention
and increase beneficial activity in the soil.
I need a new pair of pruners with a by-
pass blade.Working like a pair of scissors,
by-pass pruners have two cutting surfaces to
provide a clean, healthy cut. Anvil type
pruners, which use a blade pushing the plant
material against a flat surface, can crush the
stem leaving a ragged cut that can be slow to
heal.This allows fungus and other plant stres-
sors to attack my unsuspecting plants.
If I haven't been too naughty, maybe I'll
get a good overhaul to my lawn mower in
the shed. We'll start by sharpening the
blades.A precision cut reduces stress on
the plant while minimizing the opportuni-
ty for fungus or other pathogens to get
into the plant. A good cleaning of the
mower, particularly the mower deck, will
reduce the spread of clippings that have a
problem from carrying them to another
part of the landscape.
The list also has a rain barrel to create a
more steady supply of free water. Rain bar-
rels are available at the retailers for $100 or
so, but feed stores and online sources are
often willing to part with large, food-grade
containers for cheap.Add an inexpensive
copper nozzle and bring on the rain.
Gardeners who tote around a five-gal-
lon bucket throwing everything from a
dead flower to a few weeds may want to


consider adding a garden bucket caddy to
their list.These clever fabric wraps fit nice-
ly around these buckets with pockets for
everything.You can save trips to the shed
for tools, seeds, a water bottle or even stuff
a cell phone into one of the pockets.
New store-bought stuff is great, but
there are also a few things on my list that
can't be found at the local retailer.
For example, on my list you'll find a re-
quest for bags of all those great leaves my
neighbors raked up from their landscape
and then put out at the curb for the garbage
man.Wouldn't those make great mulch if I
ran my lawn mower over them and spread
them as a warm blanket against this winter's
cold wind? Or I could turn them into the
compost pile, transforming them into garden
gold by spring's vegetable planting time.
Another hard-to-wrap garden gift is a pile
of well-rotted compost.Wonder which of
one of my pick-up driving friends would be
willing to visit a nearby stable? Stable man-
agers are usually glad to point you to the
oldest, odor-free piles.Adding this material
to plantings makes for a free improvement
to our exceedingly poor Florida soils.
On second thought, one of the best gifts
I could get would be some time with a gar-
den buddy who would help me tackle one
of the long overdue garden projects. An
hour or two of weeding a flower bed, or
even kicking around some ideas of expand
a garden bed would be wonderful. Couple
this with a glass of iced tea, a little garden-re-
lated conversation, and some bird watching,
now that would be a priceless gift!

Bagel shop owner finds her


calling in serving others t-


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

We all have turning points in our lives.
For Linda Carr, one of hers came when
she was in her young 20s and her mother
asked her to fill in for her at the concession
stand for Carr's brother's football team.
Carr worked the French fry station and
had a blast.
"I absolutely loved it," she said.
She decided that was the kind of work
she wanted to do.
Carr went on to carve out a career in the
fast-food industry, working for chains includ-
ing Burger King, Checker's, Wendy's and
Subway for a combined total of more than
two decades.
About six years ago, Carr had another
turning point. She decided to go into busi-
ness for herself.
She decided she wanted to have a bagel
restaurant, but she
didn't know a darn
thing about making
bagels. p A.-
So, she made a
deal with some bagel
shop owners: She'd
work in their shops
for free, if they would
teach her the tricks of
the trade. Asiago bagels are a
"People thought I flavors at Bageliciou
was crazy," she said.
But she observed: "There is no bagel
school."
She spent time working at bagel shops in
various locales, including Manhattan, New
Port Richey, Ocala and Ft. Lauderdale.
The bagel shop operators were generous
with their knowledge, she said.
Bagels are not all created equal, Carr said,
adding there is no denying that NewYork
bagels taste different than those made else-
where.
"The difference between NewYork bagels
and here is the water," Carr said, conceding
she can't replicate that distinctive taste.
However, she said, she strives to satisfy
her customers by providing fresh bagels in a
variety of flavors.
"I have a lot of New Yorkers come in
who say the bagels are good."
She guarantees that the bagels sold in
her Bagelicious & More shops are made that
day.Whatever isn't sold that day is made into
bagel chips or donated to the Helping
Hands Pantry at Atonement Lutheran
Church, 29617 SR 54.
Carla Haberland of the church's food


pantry said Bagelicious provides hundreds of
pounds of bagels each week in donations.
"We bag them up, six in a bag,"
Haberland said. People picking up food at
the pantry enjoy getting the bagels, she
added."They love them."
Bagelicious & More has two locations
now and is planning to add a third soon.The
quick-service cafe at 30032 SR 54 inWesley
Chapel opened about two years ago and an-
other location opened about six months ago
in Zephyrhills at 6215 Abbot Station Drive.
A third location will be set up at Moffitt
Cancer Center at International Plaza, a new
Moffitt location that is slated to open next
summer.
Bagelicious & More will be providing the
food service at that Moffitt location, Carr
said, noting she was invited to bid on the
work and was selected through a competi-
tive process."I was recommended by some
of my customers," Carr said.


irony tile ilust popular
s & More.


The cafe in Wesley
Chapel has a simple
decor with chairs and
tables, a flat-screen
television and free Wi-
Fi. The bagels and
cream cheese spreads
come in a wide as-
sortment of flavors,
but the menu also has
a broad array of other
items for breakfast,


lunch or snacks.
The restaurant serves Seattle's Best Coffee
and offers all of the same specialty drinks as
are available at Starbucks, Carr said, mention-
ing she has a contract with them.
Popular lunch items include a chicken
salad melt, Cuban sandwiches, soups and sal-
ads. Burgers can be ordered on a bun or a
bagel, and there also are salads, soups and
wraps.
Bagelicious does catering,handles orders
for sack lunches and prepares breakfast for
Learning Gate Academy in Lutz.
Kim Burns, who lives inWesley Chapel,
drops by the restaurant about three times a
week.
"It's close to my home and it's quality
food," she said.The turkey club is one of her
favorite sandwiches, she said.
She thinks the prices are fair and she
likes the staff.
"They're very friendly," Burns said.
Carr also thinks highly of the staff. "I
enjoy my staff. I enjoy teaching them."
One of her employees is her daughter,
28-year-old Gayla Ramon, who works with
her at the Wesley Chapel location.

In one sense, this mother-daughter pair is
carrying on a family tradition.
"I lost my mother seven years ago," Carr
said. But, she noted,"When she (Carr's moth-
er) was 16 or 17 she worked in a restaurant
with her mother (Carr's grandmother)."
After years of working for employers and
helping them reach their sales goals, Carr
finds it deeply gratifying to be building a
business of her own.
The restaurant industry requires hard
work and smart management, Carr said.
Besides serving tasty food, it requires keep-
ing tight control on costs for labor and
supplies.
"You have to fight for your food costs,"
said the seasoned restaurateur, who has de-
veloped a thorough knowledge of the ins


and outs of business through her decades of
experience.
Besides the innate challenges of the
restaurant business, Carr said she's had an
added challenge with SR 54 being torn up
for road construction.
When the project is finished, it will be
fantastic, she said. Meanwhile, fewer cus-
tomers are willing to pull into her business
because it is harder to get out.
Even so, Carr has a really good feeling
about her future path in the bagel business.
"I felt very guided as I did this project,"
she said."Everything fell into place."
She is optimistic her business will contin-
ue to grow and thrive.
"Bagelicious will be well-known," she
predicted.

Gators poised for seventh straight district crown


10 seniors return

for another title run

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Land O' Lakes High is known for its
Pasco County record 14 straight football
playoff appearances, but when the season
shifts to winter the boys soccer team has its
own streak.
The Gators (6-0) have won six straight
district championships and reached the
postseason the last seven seasons.
"We should be in good shape because
we lost only three starting seniors," said 14-
year coach Mark Pearson."The majority of
our players were sophomores and juniors
last year.We'll miss the guys who graduated,
but our goal is to get number seven in a row
and go farther than we did last year."
Land O' Lakes finished last season 19-4-2
and reached the regional semifinals, losing
to eventual Class 4A state champion
Mitchell High 3-2.
"We were right there with them that
whole game and had chances to jump
ahead," Pearson said."They wound up state
champs and I think that shows the level we
can be at come playoff time this year.
"The biggest thing is gelling together and
peaking at the right time," Pearson contin-
ued. "The last couple of years I feel we
peaked too early and you always want to be
playing your best at the end of the season.
We have enough talent, but we need to
bring it all together."
Senior goalkeeper Kody Parker said
Pearson is the reason for the program's suc-
cessful run.
"He's made it everything it is," Parker said
of Land O' Lakes boys soccer."He makes it
like a professional atmosphere. He pays
close attention to everything and won't set-
tle for just ok. He's tough, but that's how
you learn and get better."

One of the biggest losses from last year is
midfielder and defender Frankie Villar, who
is currently playing at Florida Atlantic
University on a scholarship. He was named
to the All-Sunshine Athletic Conference
(SAC) first team last season, as did his sister
Alexis for her play on the Gators girls team.
SAC executive secretary Keith Newton said
it is extremely rare for siblings to make the
team the same year and does not remember
it happening before.
Frankie tore hisACL near the end of last
year, but Alexis said he has recovered fully
and is enjoying playing in college.
One of those players who will be replac-
ing Frankie is co-captain and midfielder Jake
Frahm.
"I was pretty close with
(Frankie) and it was a pleas-
ure to play with him," said
Frahm, a junior."It's changed
our lineup. I think we can
S still get back to the playoffs
even without him."
Frahm was also the foot-
ball kicker for field goals and
kickoffs this season after not
playing the sport since mid-
dle school. He said he liked
his time on the gridiron for
the most part, but is happy
to return to the pitch.

their streak. He already as five shutouts this
season, the last coming in a 4-0 win against
Wiregrass Ranch High Dec. 1.
"This is my last season and we haven't
gotten past regionals since I've been here,"
Parker said."We want to get to states and if
you get there, anything can happen.
"We need to play as a team and always
think about getting better," Parker contin-
ued."You can't mess around in any game or
any practice if we want to get to the top."
Parker pointed out that underclassmen
like junior midfielder and forward Andrew
Garcia and sophomore midfielder Sean
Young have worked very hard to improve
their game this season.
Pearson, who is also an English honors
teacher at Land O' Lakes, said Frahm and
Parker are not only team leaders but also
very good students.
"They take a lotAP and honors classes,"
Pearson said."All I know is I don't have to
worry about them in school because they
work just as hard at their grades as they do
on the field."
Pearson is also a youth coach with the
first-year FC Tampa Lutz Rangers,which plays
out of Oscar Cooler Sports Complex in Lutz.
Pearson said he hopes to someday see some
of his younger Rangers play for the Gators.
Land O' Lakes had a game at home
against Lecanto High Dec. 6, but results
were not available by press time.The Gators

Kantor out


as Gaither


football coach

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Mark Kantor's term as the Gaither
High football coach came to an end
Dec. 2 after a meeting with administra-
tors. He will remain at the school as a
social studies teacher.
"Administration wants to go in an-
other direction with the football
program," Kantor said."I was a little sur-
prised that they felt that way, so I'm
stepping down."
Kantor, who
came to the pro-
onshigram in 2002
from Hudson
High, is not only
the longest
tenured football
i coach in
Cowboys histo-
Mark Kantor ry, but also has
the most wins for the program with a
record of 42-55. He guided Gaither to
three straight playoff appearances from
2006-08 including a district champi-
onship in 2007, but went a combined
4-16 the last two seasons.

Whelan said the football position will
be advertised with Hillsborough
County soon and no timetable for get
ting another coach has been set.
"We appreciate what (Kantor) has
done here at Gaither the last nine sea-
sons',"Whelan said.
The football team started its offsea-
son workouts on Nov.29. Kantor said
he broke the news to the squad after
school Dec. 2.
"They were sad," Kantor said. He
then added."I'll still be working to get
the seniors signed with colleges be-
cause they deserve it. Those are the
kids who've put in the work for years
and I'll do whatever I can to help them
play on the next level. This won't
change that."
Kantor's coaching has helped 68
Gaither players reach the college level.
This season, senior defensive lineman
Chadd Hannah seems the most likely
to receive a scholarship. He already has
offers from the University of
Cincinnati, Rutgers, the University of
Illinois and Western Michigan
University and has received interest
from the University of South Florida
and North Carolina State University.
The Cowboys did not end the sea-
son on a high note.They were defeated
33-7 by district rival Alonso High, a
game which included a bench-clearing
scuffle in the final minutes.The inci-
dent led to 19 Gaither players
receiving one-game suspensions for
next season, the school being fined
$3,200 and the program being placed
on probation for one year.
"I don't know if that had anything
to do with this," Kantor said."They told
me it didn't and I really can't say if it
did or didn't."
Kantor said he is unsure if he wants
to coach in the future, but said he still
loves football.
"I'll get to spend more time with
my family right now while I think
about if I want to coach again," Kantor
said."It's still kind of a shock, so I'm not
sure what I want do from here on out.
Football has always been a passion of
mine and we'll see if that stays the
same, but I think it will."

New Bulls on the block ready for run at districts


Wiregrass Ranch off to best
start in program history

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Wiregrass Ranch High girls soccer
team has started better than any squad in
the school's five-year history and seem
poised to make a run at the Class 4A,
District 8 title.
The Bulls have started 11-0-1 through
their first 12 contests,including wins against
the reigning district champs and runner-up
in River Ridge High and Land O' Lakes re-
spectively. Prior to this season, Wiregrass
Ranch had never beaten either of those op-
ponents in nine opportunities.
"It's really exciting because we weren't
expecting it," said senior co-captain Nicole
Esposito, a midfielder."We've been coming
together more as a team this year when in
the past we weren't as in sync with each
other."
Other teams have taken notice of the
Bulls fast start.
"They've had several graduating classes
now and you can see their progress," said
24-year Land O' Lakes girls soccer coach
Vicky King."A lot of their girls play on club
teams and they have a good middle school
program that feeds into the school.They're a
much improved team."
Senior midfielder Camille Wilson is hon-
ored other coaches are speaking highly of
them, but does not want the squad to get
ahead of itself because the season is only
half complete.
"A fast start is one thing, but we're look-
ing to be the best at the end of the season
going into districts," said Wilson, a co-cap-
tain."We've never won a game in the district
tournament and we want to change that."
Only two teams from each district ad-
vance to the postseason - the tournament
champ and the runner-up. Land O' Lakes has
made the playoffs every year since 2000 and
River Ridge since 2006.
"It's a really tough district," said senior
midfielder Sierra Monday, who played at
Land O' Lakes as a freshman and sopho-
more."Really, the difference between this
year and last year is our great coach. She's
brought a new level to our team we didn't
have before. She knows all the little things
to take us from an ok team to a playoff
team."

over the Wiregrass Ranch program after
coaching four years at Dr.John Long Middle.
Her Longhorns teams had a combined
record of 30-3-3, including winning 26
straight games the last three seasons.
While Dodd is no longer coaching mid-
dle school soccer, she still teachers at John
Long and understands the importance of
staying connected with the Longhorns and
other feeder schools.
"I want this to be a program that has a
good relationship with the middle school
and a program that people want to come
out and be a part of," Dodd said."I want it to
be a place that other schools model after be-
cause we do things the right way.
"I've coached 70 percent of the kids out
here in middle school, so that made coming
in new a lot easier," Dodd continued. "It's
easier to learn a couple of kids than them
all. It's been a big help in the transition."
One member of Dodd's undefeated John
Long team has moved up with her on the
Bulls varsity squad. Freshman defender
Grace Olsen was on the last two Longhorns
teams that went undefeated.Add those sea-
sons to the Bulls current run and she has
not tasted defeat in either middle or high
school through the first 12 games of this
season.

Keough makes commitment official


23532 State Road 54 * Lutz, FL 33559


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com


Land O' Lakes resident Meghan Keough
recently signed her letter of intent to play
basketball at the University of Central
Florida (UCF).
Meghan, a senior,
played at Land O' Lakes
High as a freshman and
sophomore, but moved to
Tampa Catholic High for
her junior season. She
stepped in as a leader of
the Crusaders team that
won the Class 3A state
championship. -
"I'd committed to UCF
in June and I'm so excited Meghan Keough
about getting to go play signed to play b
there," Meghan said of the University of
signing."It's real now. I've Florida. (Photo(

relief because I can play my senior year
without worrying about it."
Meghan played point guard last year to
fill a need for Tampa Catholic, but will move
back to her more natural position of shoot-
ing guard this season. She averaged 21
points, eight rebounds, three steals and two
assists per game in the 2009-10
S ] campaign and is part of a top-
S 50 recruiting for UCE
S"We are extremely excited
about the new additions to our
UCF women's basketball fami-
ly," said UCF coach Joi Williams.
"Recruiting coordinator,
Courtney Locke, and the rest of
our staff did a great job of iden-
tifying four talented young
as she women who will definitely ad-
sketball at dress our needs for next season
Central and add to our athleticism and
)urtesy of depth."
Meghan had many reasons
for picking UCF, including hav-
ing a familiar face in the
program.
Her older sister Kayli also is
at UCF after transferring from
Florida State University before
this season. Kayli has to sit out
the 2010-11 season because of
NCAA transfer rules, but will
have two years of eligibility left
starting in 2011 when Meghan
gets to Orlando.
"We played together Kayli's
senior year at Land O' Lakes
when I was a freshman,"
Meghan said."It was sad when
that year ended because we
thought we'd never play on the
same team again. We're best
with their friends and now we'll get a
the Class chance to play together for
ent two years."

Conquistadors bring home national championship


Title may bring more success

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Each year KimWhitney sets out to win a
volleyball national title, but this season that
goal seemed a little more likely.
"When we were coming up with our
goals a couple months ago everyone said win
a national championship," said Whitney, who
has been Pasco-Hernando Community
College's (PHCC) coach for seven years."We
usually have a couple players say that, but this
year they all said it.I knew we were talented,
but that's when I knew we had a real chance
because they were focused on that goal."
The Conquistadors (36-7) won the
National Junior College Athletics Association
(NJCAA) Division II national championship in
Wisconsin Nov. 20 in five sets against the
Kansas-based Johnson County Community
College (JCCC). PHCC is the first Florida team
to win the title Division II title, the first athlet-
ic championship of any kind for the school.
The match was a close one at 26-24,13-
25,25-21,23-25, 15-12.JCCC actually scored
more points in the contest with 107 to
PHCC's 102. Middle blocker Marlie Temple
scored the winning point on a block.
"When I saw that ball hit the court it was
the best feeling," Temple said. "You think
about winning a national title, but I didn't
think about being the one who put down
that winning point."
Whitney said the squad had lost the only
other two five-set matches this season. She
said the players really started focusing on
finishing out long matches and actually
worked on five-set and first to 15 drills in
the week of practice leading up to the
championship tournament.
The Conquistadors were well represented
on the All-Tournament Team, with Outside
hitter Desiree Ates and Middle hitter Tazra

Pitts earning spots.Team captainAshley Seal
was the tournament's MVP and Whitney was
named Coach of the Tournament.
"It was a lot of hard work by everyone,"
said Seal. "As the setter you have to work
with everyone to set up a kill, so I know it
takes everyone to win.The MVP should ac-
tually go to everyone on the team."
PHCC is a junior college with players
graduating after two years, which makes it
difficult for a team to establish itself on the
national stage.Whitney thinks the national
championship will help the program main-
tain its momentum.
"When we talk with kids about coming
here we've told them about what we're
building, but now we can tell them about
the championship we've won," Whitney
said."I think that will help us get more good
players to come to PHCC and hopefully that
means more championships."
Whitney and the program have already
been able to reach outside central Florida
for recruits. Of the 14 players on the roster,
five are from out of state including three
from Canada.
"I wanted to play in the United States
against the best players,' said Temple, who is
from British Columbia, Canada. "When
coach Whitney told me they wanted me to
come to PHCC I knew I wanted to go there.

the same Florida team, but we play a lot

Along with winning, the Conquistadors
helped raise awareness about breast cancer
and raised money to research cures for the
disease. Players sold pink shirts during
October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness
Month, and accepted donations for the cause.

"They understand there are things more
important than volleyball and wanted to be
thought of as more than just a volleyball
team,"Whitney said."We've done this in the
past and I'm sure we'll do it again next year.
It fits in with the kind of young ladies here
and the type of program we want to have in
the future."

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


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

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

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