Major update slated for Gaither High in January


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

It's been a quarter-century since Gaither
High School opened, and now it's getting ready
for $17.3 million makeover.
The project, slated to begin in late January,
will take about 18 months to complete, said
John Williams, project coordinator for
Hillsborough County public schools.
The work will be completed in five phases,


with the phases to be done a semester at a time
and over summer.
Twenty-four portable classrooms will be
used to accommodate students when the work
is being done during the school year,Williams
said.
"The big assembly spaces will be done in
the summer,"Williams said, when the school is
closed.Those spaces include the cafeteria, the
auditorium, the locker room, large music rooms,

Center supports


healthy lifestyle

By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
Get ready to change your life.
That's the message the Center
for Living Wellness conveys to
those arriving at the beige building
at 19105 N.US 41 in Lutz.
It's a unique place that offers fit-
ness, yoga, nutrition and cooking
classes - and, which operates side
by side with the SeVaMed Institute,
where Dr. Shilpa P. Saxena com-
bines elements of conventional and
natural medicine in her integrative
medicine practice to provide care
that goes beyond pharmaceuticals.
Saxena met Michele Drielick, ex-
ecutive director for the Center for
Living Wellness, when both women
were at a health and wellness
expo.
They discovered they were kin-
dred spirits because both of them
want to help people live healthier
lives and neither felt the traditional
approach to healthcare was work-
ing.
When a doctor tells a patient
that he or she should "stop eating
white stuff and start exercising" it is
unlikely that the advice will result
in real change, Drielick said.
But when people become
knowledgeable about diet and nu-
trition and truly understand how
what they eat and how much they
move affects their overall health,
they become advocates for their
own good health, Drielick said.
"We want our office to be tar-
geted toward health," Saxena said.
The doctor said she went into med-
icine because she wanted to heal
people. She soon learned, however,
that she was spending much of her
time scribbling prescriptions.
But she now works in an envi-
ronment that fosters an
opportunity for patients to make
real and lasting life changes.

Ridge Road extension hits another snag


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The extension of Ridge Road has been in
the works for 12 years and a recent move
by the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers will en-
sure more waiting for the project.
The engineers put the brakes on the
plan in part because of cattle owned by
landowner Ted Phillips. Pasco County plans
would have allowed Phillips to continue
hunting and herding the animals on his
land, 4G Ranch,in the project area.
Spokesman for the engineers Chuck
Schnepel said the loss of wetlands in the
project area would be too great as currently
planned without converting the ranch into
a preserve.
Southwest Florida Water Management
District spokeswoman Robyn Felix said it is
the county's responsibility to mitigate the
impacts to the wetlands.
"Under their current permit application,
they are proposing to convey 221 acres of
floodplain wetlands along the Pithlachascotee
River to the district for preservation," Felix
said."They are proposing to purchase an 804-
acre conservation easement on the 4G Ranch,
which would provide a critical wildlife corri-
dor between the district's Conner Preserve
and the Cross Bar/Albar Ranch."
The current proposed cost is $77 mil-
lion, but that number will likely change to
reduce the impact on the wetlands. Felix
said extension would be a huge impact on
the area's environment.
"The extension is expected to perma-
nently impact 44 acres of wetlands and
temporarily impact 3.5 acres of wetlands,"
Felix said. "The Suncoast Parkway inter-
change with Ridge Road is expected to
impact 12 acres of wetlands. Because this is
a very large project there a variety of differ-
ent types of wetlands, forested wetlands
with cypress heads, isolated marshes and
scrubby wetlands, that will be impacted
ranging from low to high quality."
Pasco District 2 Commissioner Pat
Mulieri said Phillips,"Was willing to give a
conservation ease-
ment, but wanted to
be able to hunt and or
run cattle on the land.
The corps graciously
has given the county
one year to renegoti-
ate the mitigation with
the owner of the 4G
Ranch."
If that one year ex-
pires, the county will
have to submit new
plans for the extension. ReRg
Mulieri, whose dis-
trict includes all of Land
O' Lakes, expressed
some irritation with the
engineer's ruling.
"Two years ago
there was a belief that
if we did certain
things the issuance of


the permit was eminent," Mulieri said.
"However, that did not happen. It has been
frustrating because it appears that when
staff accomplished what is asked for, some-
thing else is added."
The project is the oldest job under re-
view by the engineers in Florida. It is
designed as an evacuation route to in part
allow Land O' Lakes and other central Pasco
residents easier access to the Suncoast
Parkway in the event of a disaster.
The plans are to extend Ridge Road from
where it ends in New Port Richey west to
the Suncoast in the first phase while adding
an interchange, and later take it to US 41.
"This road is critical," Mulieri said. "If
there is a hurricane it will move people to
the Suncoast. It is not just needed for hurri-
cane evacuation, but movement of vehicles
after any accident or disaster that would
shut down US 41,(SR) 54 or (SR) 52."
Critics of the project say it is only to way
to open more development.
"An important aspect is that it will be a
limited access road similar to the Suncoast,"
Mulieri said of that criticism."The board sup-
ported this concept a number of years ago to
allay the concerns that this was just being
built to open up more land for developers."
While the road seems unable to open ad-
ditional development, it would have a side
benefit. It would provide a faster link be-
tween central and west Pasco, including
easier access to Pasco-Hernando
Community College's (PHCC) New Port
Richey campus located on Ridge Road.
"The road would definitely be a plus for
PHCC," Mulieri said."Also Connerton and the
commerce park would benefit."

Heritage Park Foundation hosts

Land O' Lakes celebration
The crowds came out early to enjoy complimentary pancakes
and enjoyed the Pine View Middle School band. Children had fun at
the Christmas Village bouncing, making crafts, watching puppet
shows and enjoying other fun-filled activities.
The crowd was entertained by the Land O'Lakes High School
band and then enjoyed checking out the 36 vendors with lots of
fresh, high-quality produce with 65 feet of produce tables. Canned
food donations for Metropolitan Ministries was collected at the
event and there was also a visit from 01' St. Nick himself. The event
was sponsored by The Heritage Foundation, which is expanding the
community center's use to more free family fun events and activities.

When an 'Eagle' helps the troops


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com
For every 100 children who participate
in Boys Scouts ofAmerica (BSA), only two
every reach the rank of Eagle Scout. Add
Land O' Lakes resident Sam Edley to the list.
The 17-year-old Sunlake High student
earned the award Nov. 20 with a less-than-
conventional final project. Instead of the
traditional ideas of building, cleaning or re-
placing something, Sam decided to collect
thousands of dollars worth of supplies for
U.S. troops serving overseas.
"I got the idea when we did a service
project with Mr. (Bob) Williams with
Support Our Troops in Wesley Chapel," Sam
said."We folded sheets that were sent to the
troops because they didn't have any clean
ones and he told us they're always looking
for donations."
Sam gave bags with flyers listing desired
items to neighbors, relatives and members
of his church, Our Lady of the Rosary in
Land O' Lakes. He was able to collect
$19,000 worth of goods for the troops and
an additional $500 to help pay for the ship-
ping.
"I think it was a very good idea," said
Dave Edley, Sam's father. "I didn't realize
what a lot of the troops overseas go without
and this helps them be a little more com-
fortable."
Dave's father and Sam's uncles on both
sides of his family served in the armed
forces.
Sam started getting thank you letters

from those who received his care packages
a few weeks after they went out.Williams
even gave him an American flag that was
flown on a plane overseas that was sent
back by some of the troops.
"I wasn't expecting anything like that,"
Sam said."That was very special to get."
The Edleys put the flag in a glass case
displayed in their living room.
Sam first joined scouting while in third
grade.After graduating from Cub Scouts, the

youth program of BSA, he joined Troop 33 in
Land O' Lakes. In all, he earned 34 merit
badges.
"Scouting teaches you how to deal with
many different kinds of people." Sam said.
"You also learn to check to make sure every-
one did their job.You need to make sure the
people who were supposed to by the food
for a campout did or you're not going to eat
for the weekend. It teaches you how to
grow up."


Maria Edley, Sam's mother, has also seen
the benefits of the program.
"The biggest change was in that first year,"
Maria said."They go from Cub Scouts where
the parents do most of the planning to Boy
Scouts where the boys run everything. It
teaches them responsibility and each year he
became more and more of a leader."

Dear Sam,
Thank you for the care
package with all the good-
ies and personal hygiene
items. It is very much ap-
preciated. Your package
went to a health clinic
that provides walk-in/out-
patient medical care to
soldiers and civilians who
work at Kandahar Air r "
Field. The clinic is made
up of doctors, physician's Pl "
assistants, medics, supply,
tech support, mechanics, '
mental health and com-
mand staff. We put the
candy in containers that
we also share with pa-
tients while they are
waiting for
treatment. I appreciate Some of the $
that you understand what elected for the t
it's like for us soldiers.
Most people go about
their daily lives and forget we are here en-
during long deployments away from
family and friends, risking our lives, work-
ing very hard.We just sort of fade into the
background. These care packages mean
everything to us, not just because of the
creature comforts they provide, but be-
cause they send a message we have not
been forgotten.

Dear Sam,
Thank you for the package of coffee,
cookies and crackers.We really do appreci-
ate the support from back home.We are a
Navy expeditionary squadron in support
of Operation Iraqi Freedom. We are de-
ployed to Al Asad Airbase, Iraq. We have
about 180 personnel out here and appreci-
ate all the goodies that you guys have been
sending through Support Our Troops.We
provide tactical warfare air support to
troops on the ground.Appreciate all the
support.

Dear Sam,
My name is Nick Amico and I am the
team leader of an engineer military train-
ing team stationed at Joint Security Station
India on the northern edge of Mosul, Iraq.
We are a part of the 779th Engineer
Battalion, which is a National Guard unit
fromTallahassee. Our battalion's mission is
to provide construction support, conduct
route clearance operations and partner
with the Iraqi Army. Our team mission


19,000 worth of donations Sam Edley col-
:roops for his Eagle Scout project.

here at India is to mentor, train and partner
with the soldiers and leadership of the sec-
ond Iraqi Army Division's field engineer
regiment. Our goal is to help our Iraqi
Army counterparts become completely
self-sufficient for both combat/security op-
erations and construction efforts. It has
been a great experience working with the
people here, learning their culture and
helping develop their unit and capabilities.
I would like to thank you for your sup-
port of our soldiers deployed in Iraq. A
couple of your packages were delivered
here at India base by a resupply convoy
last week.Al of the members of my team
greatly enjoyed the cookies and the little
taste of home. Your show of support
means a lot to the soldiers over here. Being
separated from friends and family by near-
ly 7,000 miles for 12 months can, at times,
be discouraging, but support from people
like you helps to keep our spirits high. In
contrast to most other bases in Iraq, JSS
India is a very small facility lacking most of
the amenities that we have grown accus-
tomed to in the states. Despite this, we
really enjoy being here and being an inte-
gral part of the final phase of ensuring a
strong, sovereign Iraq.
Congratulations on the completion of
your Eagle Scout service project.That is a
tremendous achievement and shows your
personal commitment and dedication.
Considering all of the membership since
1910, only about 2 percent of Boy Scouts
can claim the honor of Eagle Scout. Great
work and congratulations.Thank you for
all of your support.

Talk about scary movies - ordering at the theater

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
Many of us will
be shopping this
week for Christmas
and a nice break
from the hustle and
bustle is to go see a
movie, so that is ex-
actly what I did. But
what do you do
when you are hun-
gry and you walk in and smell all the
aromas like buttery popcorn that seems to
go with the movies? You better be pre-
pared! I honestly never used to go to the
movies without gorging on a large pop-
corn, chocolate covered peanuts and a
large soda to the tune of 2,493 calories!
I used to use it as an excuse to pig out
until one day I saw a woman during the
previews, stuffing her face full of popcorn
and she probably would have been done
before the movie even started - just like
me. I realized that was just an excuse to
gorge and I needed to change my habits. I
first learned how to walk into a theater
and breathe through my mouth and not
through my nose, so I didn't even smell
the popcorn. I remember the first day I
ever watched a movie without eating any-
thing and it was like a miracle!
Recently, I visited the Cobb Theatre in
Wesley Chapel. I didn't have time to stop
and grab some dinner before the movie
(which is what I normally do so I am not
tempted) so I found something to eat
there. We all know there aren't the most
nutritious things to eat at a movie theater. I
didn't feel like eating popcorn because I
eat air-popped popcorn all the time at

stuff like that every once in a while. For
you avid moviegoers who enjoy eating
popcorn at the movies, let's look at the
calories:
* Small popcorn with NO added but-
ten 225 calories and 11 grams of fat
(Best choice)
* Small popcorn with added butter:
630 calories and 50 grams of fat! (Whoh
momma)
* Medium popcorn with NO added
butter: 434 calories and 20 grams of fat
(Not too bad)
* Large popcorn with NO butter: 664
calories and 31 grams of fat (Pretty high)
* Large popcorn with butter: 1,640
calories and 126 grams of fat (Yikes!
Run away)
The other challenge with popcorn is
the salt, which can make you retain lots of
water, hence, more weight gain. If you
must have something to drink, grab a
water or do I like I did and get the hot tea
with honey.That helped get my mind off
munching on food while watching the
movie LiinglcI"(which, by the way, was a
great movie)

How to stay safe when the mercury drops


A Laker/Lutz News staff report

Residents living in east and central Pasco
County and northern Hillsborough County
may not experience the winters that people
in northern states go through, but there are
still ways to minimize the amount of chill
that gets into your home - and the amount
of heat that gets out.
Here are some tips provided by the
National Association of the Remodeling
Industry to help your homes from winter
and to prevent minor problems from turn-
ing into major ones.

Winter maintenance
Inspect your home for cracks or holes in
outside walls and foundations. Use caulking
to protect water pipes and make sure that
skylights and other roof openings have
proper weather stripping to prevent cold
from seeping in.
Check water pipes for cracks and leaks
and have them repaired immediately. Even
here, pipes can freeze if temperatures dip
low enough.
Wrap exposed pipes with heating tape
to keep them from freezing.
Keep your thermostat at a minimum of
65 degrees to prevent your pipes from freez-
ing.
Install an emergency pressure release
valve in your plumbing system as an added
protection against freezing pipes.The valve
helps lessens pressure caused by freezing
pipes and reduces the chance of pipes
bursting.
Learn how to shut the water off and
know where your pipes are located. If your
pipes free, the faster you can shut off the
water or direct the plumber to the problem,
the better chance you have to prevent pipes
from bursting.
Make sure your attics, basements and
crawl spaces are adequately insulated and
well-ventilated. Insulation helps prevent
pipes from freezing and helps reduce heat-
ing costs.
Be sure your smoke and fire alarms are
working properly and that your heating sys-
tem is serviced each year. Residential fires
increase during the winter, so be sure to
protect your family.

Tips for keeping the heat in
Decrease drafts in your home by check-
ing windows and doors for air leaks and
sealing them with caulk or weather strip-
ping.

Install storm windows or plastic sheeting
over single-pane windows. If you are consid-
ering a replacement, consider specially
coated double-paned windows designed to
reflect heat back into the room.
Clean or replace the air filter to maxi-
mize the efficiency of the heating system.
Clean out ducts, warm-air registers, base-
board heaters and radiators, too.
Insulate ducts running through attics,
crawl spaces and garages. Check for separa-
tion, holes and leaks and seal them.
Seal the fireplace by keeping dampers
closed when the fireplace is not in use. Or
install glass doors to fit inside the opening
when burning out the fire.
Be sure to check your home warranty to
see if any of these repairs are covered. If a
repair requires a skill beyond your capabili-
ty, you may want to hire a professional
remodeling contractor. Be sure to check that
the contractor is licensed and insured, and
inquire with your local government about
any complaints that may be pending against
any contractor you are considering.

Protecting pipes
Here are some more tips from
Hillsborough County's Water Resource
Division for protecting your water pipelines
from bursting.
Protect pipes, especially if they are ex-
posed or the house or building insulation is
insufficient. Look for where the water serv-
ice enters the structure, and use an old
blanket or material available from a home
improvement store to insulate exposed pip-
ing.
Homes and buildings with crawl spaces
are particularly susceptible to wind and
freezing temperatures, so outdoor pipes
should be protected from the elements.
Secure water meter covers so the meter
and surrounding pipes are not exposed.
Insulate or cover exposed backflow pre-
vention devices on fire lines and irrigation
systems.
Disconnect any outside water hoses
from spigots, as water trapped inside can
freeze and crack the hose.
If piping does freeze, be patient. It does-
n't mean your water service has been
turned off.Wait a few hours for tempera-
tures to warm and the pipes to thaw. Never
use an open flame to thaw out a pipe.
If a pipe does burst, turn off the water
supply by using the home's shut-off valve,
typically located under a sink or just outside
the structure.

Foster parents needed in Pasco


Imagine being taken away from your
home, not knowing where you will go, leav-
ing behind your favorite things. Now,
imagine this through the eyes of a child.
There are more than 3,500 dependent chil-
dren in Pinellas and Pasco counties due to
child abuse, neglect or abandonment.
Many of these children will need to live
in a temporary foster home, and Eckerd
Community Alternatives needs your help to
meet a growing need.
Prospective foster parents need to be at
least 21 years old, have appropriate housing

and be able to pass a background screening.
They will need to complete a home study
and 36-hours of special training called
MAPP Although foster parents will receive
financial assistance to help care for the
child, they cannot rely on this to pay bills.
To be a foster parent, you can be single
or married, have a family of your own or be
an empty nester.

ter parent, call Eckerd CommunityAlternatives

Tips on avoiding holiday scams


A Laker/Lutz News staff report

Take Charge America offers these tips on
spotting fraudulent charities, travel rip-offs
and other seasonal scams:
* Fake charities soliciting donations over
the telephone, through e-mail or by direct
mail.To avoid these rip-offs, only donate to
charities you know and trust. If a new chari-
ty piques your interest, be sure to verify its
existence on Charity Navigator or the BBB
Wise GivingAlliance. If you can't locate the
charity in question, use the online search
tools to find a different charity with a similar
mission.
* Fraudulent travel deals. Be sure to re-
search your options and only purchase
travel packages from reputable companies
you know and trust.
* Fake travel sites may offer amazing deals


on vacation rentals or hotels to lure you into
providing personal information that can be
used to steal your identity or tap your bank
account.This practice is known as"phishing."
* Fake contest alerts. Many scammers
use telemarketing to tempt consumers with
prizes from fake contests. Be very wary if
you get a call about winning a big-ticket
item such as a luxury vacation. Do not put
down a deposit or provide the caller with
any personal data. The call probably is a
scam, especially if you do not recall entering
a contest. Similar tactics are used by scam-
mers to solicit personal information through
cell phone text messages asking the recipi-
ent to call a toll-free number.This is referred
to as "smishing." Be sure to warn children
and senior citizens who may not be phone
savvy and may be more susceptible to these
kinds of scams.

Troy was a surprise
Troy, who has a Siamese look and gorgeous aqua-colored eyes, was a surprise gift
to the children at his new home. The owners held a Facebook vote to pick his
name of Troy. Troy has a delightful nature and happily allows the kids to carry him
around and dress him up. He enjoys sitting in the middle of the racecar track as the
battery-operated race cars crash into his body. He also likes following the vacuum
robot. He looks the cutest when he sleeps on his back, all sprawled out. Troy has
been a wonderful addition to the Brown family. Proud owners are Tommy, Sarah,
Izzie, Emelina and Oscar Brown of Land O' Lakes.

Who is watching the watchmen?


Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far.
-The Buggies

By Randall Grantham
Community Columnist
I've been an out-
spoken advocate of
videotaping all po-
lice/citizen
encounters for a
long time now. For
better or for worse,
it provides an unbi-
ased version of the
incident.And with digital technology and
cutting-edge forensics now available to the
government, more and more police and
their cars are equipped with more and
better video equipment.
Some have cameras that are running all
the time and capture individual stops from
start to finish and from several different
vantage points. They often show date,
time, direction of travel and even GPS pin-
pointed location.
While law enforcement agencies are all
in favor of this technology when it helps
their case, some seem to have a different
point of view when it is them shown on
film doing something that is not quite
SOP
Sometimes it's their own camera that
captures a less-than-flattering interaction
between the officers and the public. Do
you remember the incident in Miami
where the cops' camera shows them con-
cocting a story about how a woman's cat
jumped out of her car window causing
him to hit her as she swerved in front of
him, when actually he had rear-ended her
simply because he was not paying atten-
tion?
Years ago, the local sheriff's office
videotaped a "dynamic entry" by the SWAT
team to execute a search warrant in a drug
case.That was the first,last and only time
they did that. Once I introduced that as ev-
idence, the judge didn't appreciate the
discrepancies between it and the way the
cops had testified the raid went down and
threw out all the evidence.
Then there were the Polk County cops
caught on tape playing Wii at the their
drug suspect's home on his home surveil-
lance cameras
And now, there are videos every-
where.They're all throughout every major
retail outlet and even scan the parking
areas at Walmart, Busch Gardens and
other spots.They're atATMs and gas sta-
tions.And most threatening of all, they're
in citizens' hands on nearly every cell
phone sold today.
It may surprise you, but cops do not
like being the subject of video taping
when they are confronting a member of


www.cheersbarbershop.net


the public.They will actually arrest you for
trying to film them in action.
Cops in Maryland recently raided a
home to seize evidence and arrest a man
for violating the state's wiretapping
statute. His crime was posting on
YouTube a helmet-cam recording of his
traffic stop where the unmarked officer
drew down on him for no apparent rea-
son. He faces up to 16 years in prison
because he had the audio recording with
the video.
Another woman in that state was re-
cently arrested for filming police
responding to a noise complaint in her
apartment complex.According to her ar-
rest report, she "confessed" to recording
the encounter for the purpose of showing
cops harassing people. She also recorded
audio and video.
Now, some states have actually crimi-
nalized filming police in action. In
Florida it is a crime to record audio of
people who don't consent to be record-
ed, but there's no law on the books
prohibiting a video-only recording of
events taking place in public. So, usually
the charge is trumped up to obstructing
an investigation, or disorderly conduct,
or, in one case where the officer blocked
the camera, battery on a law enforce-
ment officer.
Last year a model was arrested in
Boynton Beach for videotaping an en-
counter between her teenage son and
police in a movie theater. Prosecutors had
the good sense not to file charges, but the
ACLU is suing the police department for
the arrest.
The president of the national Fraternal
Order of Police defends these arrests, say-
ing that filming cops on duty "can
intimidate officers from doing their job."
Of course he also says that cops don't lie.
I'm not saying cops lie.Al I'm saying is
that a video recording of something is
more reliable and unbiased than having
one or more parties give their version of
what happened. There are bound to be
omissions, exaggerations and personal spin
there that would not be present with a
video.
What's good for the goose should be
good for the gander and people, whether
they be witnesses or participants, should-
n't be intimidated or threatened out of
preserving that kind of evidence. And
criminalizing this type of thing just re-
minds me too much of those news feeds
you see from Communist China or the
like. It's just un-American!

Reaction to transportation studies


Dear Editor:
I can't believe that we are going to
spend $3 million for a study on various
routes for rail and bus lanes. I have to tell
you that unless they take a lane from the
opposite direction of the traffic, or build
another lane for HOV/BUS it will not
work.Again do the powers that be who
are doing these studies go to other cities
to see how these work and are they going
to the right sites? You can't go to New
York City and compare their transit with
Tampa.There are 25 million people in the
NYC area and the trains, buses and light
rail are crowded, but guess what? They
are ALL in the RED. Every transit option
runs at a deficit, and has to be subsidized


by the taxpayers. I look at our situation
here in the NewTampa area as exactly like
where I grew up in Parsippany, N.J. Guess
what, they tried every possible way to put
transit there and it did not work. It is a
suburb and the example all experts give
on suburban sprawl. Unless they want to
get rid of all the corporate parks and move
the companies downtown, their plan will
just make traffic on the roads horrific. I
lived there for almost 40 years and saw
every mistake. We are starting to make
the same ones when it comes to Tampa
Bay area transit.

has high blood pressure, she can prescribe
medication to treat the condition, the doc-
tor said.
But she also encourages her patients to
make lifestyle changes that can help them
reclaim their good health and stop taking
medications.
That's where the Center for Living
Wellness comes in. It helps people to be-
come more knowledgeable about diet and
nutrition and provides a supportive atmos-
phere to help them change their lifestyle.
Some center members are Saxena's pa-
tients, but anyone is welcome to join the
center, Drielick said.
The center's monthly membership is $39
per month, without a monthly commitment,
for unlimited exercise classes, including fit-
ness and yoga classes.Those interested in
joining can get a free week to preview the
center's offerings.
One advantage the center offers is small
exercise classes, said Amber Swortzel, a fit-
ness instructor at the center.That allows for
more individualized instruction, she said.

"I've worked in fitness centers before
where I've had 40 people in a class.When I
have 40 people in a class, it's hard for me to
see," she said. She normally has about a half-
dozen members in her Monday night class.
The center also offers quarterly wellness
lectures, cooking classes and a food coop
that members can join to order organic
fruits and vegetables.
Cristin Becker, of Wesley Chapel, recently
was at the center with her 4-year-old son,
Liam and her 3-year-old daughter, Chloe,

Becker had nothing but praise for the
center. She lc,'c nlrbc I it as "a kind of commu-
nity that offers a lot of support.
"It helps to have like-minded people,"
Becker said. "It helps to recommit you to
your passion for vibrant living."
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a chal-

wise, they're lying," she said.
Becker said she hopes her children will
learn how to lead healthy lives because
they're growing up in a household that val-
ues good health."They won't have the bad
habits," she said.
Besides its current offerings, the center
will be adding two initiatives in January.
It is launching its Living Wellness
University, which will provide online
health/nutrition classes, Healthy Gourmand
cooking classes,yoga and fitness classes to
subscribers for $14.95 a month.
It also is beginning its 90-Day Shred,
which is $125 a month and it is $195 a
month when it includes a personalized nu-
trition plan.
"That's a very intense program. It will
yield absolute results.You do it, it's done,"
Drielick said.
Saxena said conventional medicine can
be likened to trying to plug holes in a wall
to prevent a flood.
The real issue, Saxena said, is how to re-
duce the water on the other side of the
wall.

Once a semester has started, students
will not be moved either from the portable
classrooms into the school building or vice
versa,Williams said.
The work will involve replacing the
school's mechanical systems, which means
removing the big chillers and air handlers.
That work will require removing and replac-
ing the ceiling and lighting.The school also
will get a new roof.
The project calls for new fire alarms,
new security systems, a new intercom sys-
tem, repainting and the installation of fire
sprinklers. It also includes sealing up the
ventilation system.

The doctor noted that three things have
a profound effect on a person's general
health: the way we eat, the way we move
and the way we manage our stress.
However, physicians are not trained in
nutrition, exercise or stress management,
Saxena said.
The Center for Living Wellness strives to
help people improve their overall health.
"By improving diet and lifestyle, we have
seen amazing results. Diet and exercise can
make all of the difference," Drielick said.

Williams said the project calls for replac-
ing the air-conditioning system and the
school's roof, so he doesn't expect similar
problems to occur.
Because the project is being done at a high
school, students may be attending portable
classrooms for some periods and classes in
permanent spaces during the rest of the day.
People passing by the school probably
won't be able to tell that anything is being
done inside the school,Williams said.
The project also calls for adding a stair-
well at the front of the building, to meet
current safety codes.The restrooms also will
be updated to meet current American with

Keep it simple in the garden


By Jeannie Hayes and BJ Jarvis
Pasco Cooperative Extension
At the end of the year, life is very hectic
running around decorating, shopping, visit-
ing with friends. We all need to shorten
our "to do" lists not just at the holidays, but
also during the rest of the year. Here are a
few things that can help make gardening a
little simpler.
Gardeners can't help wanting to add
more garden gems to the landscape only
to realize later there isn't enough time to
establish them or keep up with weeding.
Sometimes, plants may not even make it
into the ground.
It is time to step back and find some
ways to make garden life easier. Here are a
few simple and inexpensive ideas from
Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM to keep
our landscapes looking good without fur-
ther stress:
-Plant groundcovers that generally re-
quire less fertilizing, mowing and
maintenance once established.
-Add instant garden color by sinking
an entire pot of colorful annuals into the
ground.When plants start to fade,just pull
out the inner pots and replace. When
chrysanthemums fade, plant cheerful poin-
settias.
-Mount rain gauges at eye level for
easy reading. Mailboxes and fence posts
are ideal.
-Add a rain barrel at your roof down-
spout to collect water for container plants
when it is dry. No guttering? Just place an
open barrel at the valley where two house
sections meet. Rainwater usually gushes
down there. Make sure the barrel has a
screen on the top to prevent mosquitoes
and a spigot at the bottom for easy access
to water.
-Container plants in the sun dry out
fast and may need daily watering. Cut the
maintenance time by adding wetting
agents, such as hydrogels, to your planting
mix. Many major brands offer potting
mixes with moisture holding gels.
-Stop the spread of invasive weeds by
vacuuming the seeds with a dust buster or
shop vacuum.These work well to collect


Groundcovers can eliminate the small spots
that are often awkward to mow and maintain.

desirable wildflower seeds too. Clean the
unit well between uses.
-Strips of old carpeting two-foot-wide
make instant weed-free garden walkways.
Turn carpeting over with the backing on
the top for a more natural look.
-Piles of utility mulch from the power
company have many uses besides sup-
pressing weeds and moderating soil
temperatures. Create an instant berm that
can become a holding area for container
plants by sinking the pots.The containers
will not blow over and require less water-
ing. Use it to make compost on a big scale
for your veggie garden. If you have chil-
dren or grandchildren, running over mulch
piles is a great way for children to run off
some of that candy-driven energy.
If you find yourself with a few extra
minutes this holiday season and aren't sure
what exactly to do in the garden, visit the
University of Florida's gardening calendar.

County tasks can be found in central

with Olav welcoming customers to the salon and Lori overseeing a dozen stylists.

have the gift of gab and enough business sense to handle day to day operations."

You owe it to yourself
"Cameo isn't one of those places where you sit down and they say, "what are you
looking for?" My stylist actually spent 15 minutes with me to not only ask what type of
hair cut I wanted, but also to get to know me personally. It isn't every day that you get
this kind of service."

Piccola Italia offers up a little slice of Italy


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
From its Italian maps and col-
orful murals to its pictures of Italy
and Italian place mats, it is easy to
see that the owners of this cozy
restaurant pride themselves on
their heritage.
For nearly 25 years, the family-
owned restaurant Piccola Italia
Italian American Restaurant has
been serving up its hearty fare to
feed the locals of Zephyrhills and Antoniet
the city's abundant winter residents, in the fo
Restaurant ownersAntonietta celebrate
D' Eramo and Sergio, Maria and
Robert Pullo take pride in the homemade
sauces, pasta and soups they serve.
Sergio handles myriad chores at the
restaurant. He makes the pasta and pizza
dough. He also fixes just about anything that
needs a repair, family members said.
The restaurant evolved out of the
women's love of cooking.When other moth-
ers would send cupcakes to school
functions, they would send pans of lasagna,
said Robert, who is Maria's son.
The menu tells patrons what to expect:
"Good Italian cuisine cannot be rushed," the
menu proclaims."Please be patient while
your order is being prepared."
The restaurant's offerings include appe-
tizers such as fried mushrooms, fried
eggplant, fried zucchini and shrimp cocktail.
If you like spaghetti, you can get it
topped with meat sauce, marinara sauce,
meatballs or sausage, butter sauce,garlic and
oil, garlic and mushrooms, a la shrimp

scampi and with seafood sauce.
Other dishes feature veal, chicken,
seafood and pasta, including stuffed shells,
fettucine alfredo and lasagna. Other menu
choices include pizza, calzones, sides, salads,
soups, desserts, beer, wine and soft drinks.
There's also a children's menu and senior
citizen's menu.
And, there are daily specials, too.
Eating dinner at Piccola is"the equivalent
of having a home-cooked meal, without
being at home," Robert said.
In the beginning, it was a struggle,
Antonietta said. Over the years,however, the
restaurant has had staying power because
the owners realize being successful re-
quired more than simply serving good food.
Customers don't go out for dinner just to
eat a good meal, Robert said.They also want
the pleasure of being served.
Customers also like to feel a personal
connection to the people who are prepar-


- ing and serving their food,
Antonietta said. "We mingle
with everyone," she said.
Al Kirk, a restaurant regular,
definitely feels the connection.
-He dropped by Piccola one
recent afternoon and took his
S"" 9 place at the head of the table,
right next to the kitchen.
S "Every day that I can make
S" it, I'm here," he said. One of the
reasons he comes so frequently
is because he enjoys chatting
ake pride withAntonietta and Maria.
which will Another reason is that he en-
joys the food.
His favorite is the pasta po-
modoro."You have to try it,"he said."I think
it's delicious. I could live on it - that's how
good it is.When you order it, that's when they
make it. I think that's the touch, right there."
Antonietta said there's a secret to treat-
ing customers properly.
"No matter what they do. No matter
what they say - smile," she said.
Maria andAntonietta said they want their
patrons to be happy. If a mistake occurs,
they want to make amends, they said.
They also enjoy the camaraderie that
builds over time with customers.
It's quite common for diners to poke
their head through a window into the
kitchen just to say hello,Antonietta said.
Maria offered this tip for getting the most
flavor from a plate of spaghetti:"You've got
to mix it up," she said. That allows the
spaghetti to absorb some of the sauce, allow-
ing diners to taste the flavor in every bite.
Besides serving diners, the restaurant

handles catering and sells bottled sauce at
the restaurant and online.
As it approaches its silver anniversary, it
is planning to branch out - by distributing
its bottled sauce to specialty markets. One
day it hopes to have shelf space at large su-
permarket chains, such as Publix and
Sweetbay, Robert said.
The restaurant also plans to celebrate its
25th year by doing something special.
They haven't ironed out the details yet.
When they turned 20, they rolled back the
price on their spaghetti dinner to what it
was when they opened.
They might do something similar in
March, or celebrate some other way.
Stay tuned.

Two Gators teams win PPAL super bowls


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Land O' Lakes Gators were well rep-
resented in this year's Pasco Police Athletic
League (PPAL) super bowl, sending four of
their five teams to the event and claiming
two championships.
The Gators mighty mites and junior varsi-
ty teams reached the title games, while the
flyweight and varsity squads took home
PPAL crowns.
For the flyweights (13-0),it was the sec-
ond straight championship.
"Last year I was really excited because I
didn't think we'd win," said tight end and
corner back Grant Henderson, a co-captain.
"This year I knew we'd be great because of
all the good players we have."
Both flyweight titles came with Ed
Campbell as the coach.
"At the start of the season I never
thought we'd go through undefeated," Ed
said."Quickly I saw the boys had something

special, but not just because of their play
and ability to listen to the coaches. Football
is like a brotherhood and that's what they
became.They stuck together and wouldn't
let one kid get picked on in a game. They
truly came together.
"Football is different from every other
sport in that way," Ed continued."After going
through all the heat and pain in practice
and games, you have to come together as
one."
Ed's son Hunter is a guard, fullback, de-
fensive end and special teams player for the
Gators.While he enjoys playing all the differ-
ent positions, what he really loves about
playing with the team is spending time with
his family and friends.
"I get to be with all my team each week
and have fun," said Hunter, a co-captain."My
dad can be tough as a coach, but he does it
to make you a better player."
The offensive MVP for the flyweights,
which is for players 7-8 years old, was run-
ning back Keith Walker. The co-captain

MVP award for his performance in the

scored 22 total touchdowns in the 13
games, including 19 rushing, two intercep-
tion returns and a kick return for a score. He
gained 935 yards rushing as well.
"We have a lot of guys who couldn't be
stopped in games," Walker said. "We have
players who can do special things at any
time."
Walker was also the offensive MVP of the
Gators 37-7 super bowl win against West
Hernando.Taking home the defensive MVP
honor in the title game was linebacker
Mason Matzke, who had an interception in
the final contest.
"It was a hard game," Matzke said of the
super bowl."It wasn't that close, but it was a
hard game to win. Our coach really helped
us all year and did a great job in the super
bowl."
Joining Matzke in the linebacking core
was co-captain Jimmy Sandifer, who is also a
center. Playing two of the roughest positions
on the field does not faze him.
"I like the hitting," Sandifer said."I get to
do it every play."
The last of the co-captains is fullback
Dawson Place.
"It's been a lot of fun being a captain,"
Place said."You have more to do.... The sea-
son has been even better than last year
because we never lost."
All players received trophies and other
gifts at the end of the year event at the Land
O' Lakes Community Center, but one player

was given a special award. Last year, Jalen
Williams was right at the 100-pound weight
limit for the flyweight division. Ed said he
expected him to be more than the limit at
this year's weigh in, but Williams put himself
on a diet and running program and made
the squad.
"We gave him the Warrior Award for
doing that," Ed said."That takes dedication
for a young kid to go on a diet and work
hard to make weight like he did."
Ed thanked the flyweight cheerleaders
for always easing his tension during games
with their routines. He also thanked the par-
ents of the players for allowing him to
coach the boys and his wife Lisa, who he
said is the, "glue of the team that made
everything happen."
Players on the Gators come mainly from
Land O' Lakes and Lutz. For more informa-

Ryan Horne helps college win national soccer championship


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com
Young athletes across the country dream
of one day winning a national champi-
onship. Most never make it a reality, but
Odessa resident Ryan Home did as a fresh-
man.
He is a member of the Clearwater
Christian College soccer team that just won
the National Christian College Athletic
Association (NCCAA) Division II title.The
forward and midfielder helped the Cougars
(15-5) defeat Ohio Christian University 2-0
in the championship game.
"I've never won a soccer title in high
school, even a district title, so it's insane hav-
ing this happen my first year in college,"
Horne said. "I knew we were good, but
being the best in the country, you don't ex-
pect that."
It is actually the second straight national
title for Clearwater Christian.
"We had people coming after us with
everything they had all year because the
team won it all the year before," Home said.
"That made it hard because you can't sneak
up on anyone."
James Whitaker
became the Cougars
coach three seasons
ago and knew it
would be hard to re-
peat this year.
"Last season we
flew under the radar
all year because our
Ryan Horne program hadn't ever
won a national cham-
pionship,"Whitaker said."Actually, it was the
first men's national championship at the
school.This year, I wouldn't say we expect-
ed to win, but we would have been
disappointed if we didn't because we know

what it takes now.We returned most of our
players and added a lot of young talent."
Horne was among those additions. He
went to Citrus Park Christian High and was
the squad's leading scorer as a senior. He
cited three reasons for attending the school,
including its Christian atmosphere, its emer-
gence as a soccer power and its proximity
to home, a location close enough for par-
ents Sid and Diane to attend matches.
"I know this is the place for me," Home
said."CoachWhitaker cares about you off the
field and makes sure you're doing the right
thing.... The players, we all get along. During
games we're really serious, but we have a good
time between games. It's like a big family."
Home started playing soccer around age
3. He also played football, basketball and
baseball in high school, but was drawn to


the grass on the pitch.
"I just love playing soccer," Horne said."I
like the other sports, but I love soccer."
After winning the NCCAA Southern
Region, the Cougars advanced to the eight-
team championship tournament. In the title
game, Clearwater Christian scored its two
goals in the first half to win in the crown. It
was the 11th shutout of the season.
While Home did not start often his first
year, he was valuable to the Cougars coming
off the bench.
"He would bring energy to our lineup,"
Whitaker said."He is a very attack-minded
and fast player who forces the other team to
play up-tempo soccer.... He also had a great
attitude in practice because he always
worked very hard. He was one of the hard-
est players to defend in practice and made


our defenders get a lot better from going
against him."
The Cougars will lose seven seniors to
graduation this year andWhitaker said there
is a good chance Home will move into one
of those starting positions next season.
"We'll need to have several new starters
step up,"Whitaker said."We'll lose our lead-
ing scorer Tyler Spraul, but we'll bring back
our goal keeper Anthony DeRosse and I'm
confident we'll still have a strong team."
Home has three more years of eligibility,
giving him plenty of time to improve his
game. He is majoring in business, but said he
wants to get a chance to play professional
soccer.
"I'd love to have that shot," Horne said.
"Playing the game I've been around since I
was 3 for a living.That would be a dream."

By Derek Highley
Golf Columnist
We're well into
December and I
thought I'd pass
along a drill with ties
to the holiday season,
at least in name any-
way. I call this drill
Sthe Christmas tree
drill and it is a great
practice exercise for anyone struggling
with direction control.
It is very difficult to go from hitting the
ball crooked to hitting the ball straight by
going to the practice range and trying to
hit straight balls. The best path to a
straighter ball flight is actually to hit balls
off line on purpose. This works well for
two reasons, the first being by intentional-
ly hitting shots left or right you begin to
focus in on controlling the clubface.
Secondly, this drill provides some parame-
ters to work off of as you begin to
straighten your shot.
You can do this drill with any club in
your bag, but I suggest starting with a mid-
iron. Be sure to work your way up through
your bag to the driver.
To start, pick a target in the middle of
the range and set up as if you are going to
hit straight shots. Now hit your first three
balls so they hook and land left of the tar-
get.
The primary goal is to make sure your
ball is turning left. It really doesn't matter
at this point how far left, in fact for the
first few the farther left the better.After
you successfully hit three shots in a row to
the left, hit the next three balls so they
turn in the opposite direction.
The second phase of the drill is where

the Christmas tree pattern takes shape.
On the second go round we are going
to limit how far left and right the ball can
turn.What you need to do is continue to
set up to the middle target, but now pick
two other targets one about 30 yards to
the left of center and the other 30 yards
right of center.
With your next three balls the goal
again is to have the ball turn left, but this
time it cannot go farther left then your
secondary target. Same again on the right
side. Repeat a third time, moving your left
and right secondary targets in 10 yards.
Hit three shots turning left and three
turning right, the goal being to land the
ball inside your target parameters. Repeat
a fourth time, moving the targets in an-
other 10 yards, now your margin of error
has become 10 yards left or right of your
target.
You have created a Christmas tree ef-
fect by starting with a wide base and
narrowing as you go.
This is a great drill to develop or re-
gain clubface control. By starting off with
a wide target you allow yourself to really
overdo opening and closing the club-
face, a sensation you need to feel in
order to give you a good starting point to
back off from. Slowly narrowing your tar-
get as you progress through the drill
allows the feel of controlling the club-
face to sink in and leads to much more
accurate shots.

Shawn Brown helps rally Wesley Chapel girls basketball


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

A few weeks ago it was uncertain who
would lead the Wesley Chapel High girls
basketball team, but new coach Shawn
Brown has brought the team together de-
spite having no summer workouts or
preseason.
"We didn't know what was going on
with the program," said senior Hannah
Noble."We were lucky to get such a good
coach so late in the game."
The Wildcats (5-4) reached back-to-back
regional finals the last two seasons with
Karim Nohra as coach, but he was not re-
tained after the season. He is currently
coaching atAcademy at the Lakes.
Stepping in for Nohra is Brown, who is
the sports and camp director at the East
Pasco Family YMCA. He has also coached
the Orlando Magic's youth basketball camps
since 2005, but this is his first head coach-
ing position in high school.
"It's pressure right off the bat," Brown
said of taking over a successful program.
"The girls expect a lot and want to continue
to win. Part of the challenge was a lot of
girls transferred to other schools.We basical-


ly have just one player who played in signifi-
cant game action last year in Hannah."
For Noble, the choice to stay was easy.
"I've grown up here and played middle
school basketball atWeightman (Middle), so
this is the only place I wanted to play my
senior year," Noble said.
Noble has been a point guard for most of
her playing career, but has moved to shoot-
ing guard this season to free her up to
score. Now running the point for the
Wildcats is Tiffany Echevarria, a sophomore.
She has played point guard since the fifth
grade and said she learned a lot from watch-
ing Noble play last season.
It was a little daunting running the of-
fense, but a talk with Noble before the
season let Echevarria know she could do
it.
"She told me we were in this together,"
Echevarria said."It made me feel like I was-
n't alone in the backcourt. I know we can
rely on each other."
The Wildcats will be a guard-oriented
team because they do not have a lot of
height.The tallest player is 5-foot-11 junior
center Brittany Byrd, who almost did not
play this season.
"I'd decided I didn't want to play to


Shawn Brown is in his first year as the Wesley Chapel girls basketball coach.


"I love playing down in the post," Byrd
said."I'm not the kind of girl who likes play-
ing guard and shooting from on the
perimeter. I love being down there and
fighting for rebounds and blocking shots. It's
why I love basketball."
The Wildcats next play at Sunlake High
Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m.


Hannah Noble is the only Wildcats senior
and will be leaned on as both the No. 1
scoring option and leader of the squad.

Man Goes "TOAD-AL" at High School Reunion

BEXAR COUNTY - After using Thera-Gesic" on aching joints,
Tom W. attended last Friday's reunion where, according to 5 amused and
concerned classmates, he went TOAD-AL. He squatted, extended both
arms to the ground, arched his back and did his best to hop numerous times
while croaking.
When asked to explain his behavior, he painlessly replied,
"None of your dang business!"


SAVE, LIVE,
BUY THERA-GESIC�.

"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.
