School food drive teaches

compassion, mathematics


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs. corn
It's not a bit uncommon for churches,
schools and other organizations to have
food drives around the holidays, but stu-
dents at Learning Gate Community School
in Lutz are helping to feed the hungry in a
project that lasts nearly the entire school
year.
Students are collecting food for Feeding
America Tampa Bay.
The project teaches the children many
valuable lessons, said Jennifer Weis, one of
the fourth-grade teachers involved in the
effort.The other two teachers whose class-
es are directly engaged in the project are
Jennifer Boroff and Suze Meredith.All to-
gether, there are 64 fourth graders pitching
in.
The project that was launched last year
by Cissy Stanko, the school's garden
teacher, and the fourth-grade teachers were
so inspired by the project they stepped in
to take it over this year.
Besides collecting food for the hungry,
the children are learning about compas-
sion - as well as reinforcing mathematics,
writing and health lessons,Weis said.
"We loved that they could be involved
in a year-long project,"Weis said."We loved
what it stood for."
The goal is to collect one can of food

If they meet that goal, all the students
will enjoy a "free dress" day in lieu of the
school's uniform, she said.
The students advertise their food drive
through posters and the fourth-grade class-
es have divided responsibilities for
collecting the foods from different grade
levels.
Students in her classroom are thrilled to
be involved with the project.
"It's really fun to help. It's nice to do,"
said 9-year-old Miranda College, who thinks
there's a good chance the school will
achieve its goal."I think we're going to get
there."

Gaither's Colton Shepard
wins hospital contest

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs. com
As the names of the children up for Kids
are Heroes award were read Dec. 13,
Gaither High senior Colton Shepard was
calm because he was not expecting to win.
"We got to hear all the stories of the kids
who were nominated and I didn't think I
had a chance," Shepard said."They read the
names in alphabetical order, so when they
skipped my name I was surprised because it
meant I was in the top three."
Then they announced Lutz resident
Geena Allen came in third for the 13 to 18-
year-old category, followed by Odessa
resident Jonathon Bermudez in second. St.
Joseph's Children's Hospital has been
awarding the honor each year since 1996,
and Shepard is the first Gaither Cowboy to
take first place.
"I was blown away," Shepard said."The
really cool thing is patients at the hospital
judge it. It's a jury of your own peers who
pick you instead of adults."
Shepard was up for the award because
his actions saved a mother and child from a
burning vehicle. He was walking home from
a friend's house in June when he saw the af-

Big expansions ahead for Florida Medical Clinic


New corporate headquarters
gives space for other services

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

When Florida Medical Clinic opened its
newest facility in 2009 on SR 54 in Land 0'
Lakes, it was with an eye toward the future.
It was built to easily allow for several ex-
pansions, and the first of those got under
way Dec. 6. The $3.5 million project is
adding a 30,000-square-foot administrative
building that will become the business'new
corporate headquarters.
Currently, Florida Medical is headquar-
tered at a few locations in east Pasco
County, including Zephyrhills.
"I have mixed emotions a little bit be-
cause I've been in Zephyrhills for such a
long time, but this will be the first time I can
put all of the administrative functions in one
location," said Florida Medical Clinic CEO
Joe Delatorre, who started the company in
east Pasco 17 years ago."Right now there is
a lot of lost time going back and forth to
meet with all these different people. This
will be very nice to be more centrally locat-
ed."
Florida Medical spokeswoman Janet
Wing said the headquarters should be open
by late summer 2011.
With the timesaving, the movement west
will open up room for more services in
Zephyrhills.
"We need more space for (same-day sur-
gery) expansion, clinical rheumatology
expansion and urgent care expansion all in
Zephyrhills," said Delatorre, who currently
lives in Wesley Chapel."This new facility will
free up the space for those expansions in
east Pasco."
The first of those future projects is for
same-day surgery, which will be a 12,000-
square-foot expansion expected to begin in

the first half of 2011. Rheumatology facilities
will grow by 7,500 square feet, plus a tenta-
tive plan to make a 7,000-square-foot
addition to urgent care.
In addition, after the new headquarters
are built, Delatorre said they will likely add


another 18,000 square feet for more med-
ical services to the Land O' Lakes facility.
"We can't add any more physicians right
now in Land O' Lakes," Delatorre said."We're
brimming."
Delatorre said Florida Medical has 110


physicians and another 40 employees who
extend doctor's ability to heal, such as
nurses.
"The best thing to say is we are a pro-
gressive, multi-specialty physician-owned
practice," Delatorre said."You can come to
one location and have many health issues
taken care of."
Florida Medical currently has 17 facilities
operating in Lutz, Land 0' Lakes, Wesley
Chapel, Zephyrhills, Dade City, New Tampa,
Carrollwood and North Tampa. Delatorre
said Florida Medical's proximity to hospitals
like Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, Pasco
Regional Medical Center, St. Joseph's
Hospital-North, University Community
Hospital and the future Wesley Chapel
Medical Center is one of its strengths.
"If you see one of our doctors, you can
go to basically any of those hospitals,"
Delatorre said."That helps with insurance is-
sues for the patient. ... Also, with our
electronic health record it integrates all of
our facilities, so it's seamless to go from one
facility to the other."
Florida Medical put its electronic med-
ical records in place since 2006. It not only
allows their doctors to see a patient's health
history, but also to see all the medications
they might be taking.
"Just the medications alone for our sen-
iors, a lot of time they don't remember
which ones they're on,"Wing said."Here the
history is all in the records so the physicians
make sure nothing interacts with something
else they're taking."
As for any future expansions beyond
what he listed, Delatorre grinned a little
and said,"I have plenty more. Pasco County
is an extension of Hillsborough County and
there is a lot of activity going on here.
We've been here for 17 years and devel-
oped a good reputation and recruited some
great physicians.We are uniquely located in
these markets and I think there is more to
come."

Owen Sarwatka makes sure 'Everyone Can Play'


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Baseball and scouting have been two of
the biggest influences on Owen Sarwatka
and the Lutz resident has come up with a
way to combine the two.
Owen, 16, is in the final stages of earning
his Eagle Scout award and for his final proj-
ect, he and his Tampa Catholic High baseball
team and coaches will teach the sport to
children in the Little League Challenger
Division.The program allows physically and
mentally disabled kids ages 4-21 to learn
about and play baseball.
"I wanted to do something to help the
community and spread the love of baseball,"
Owen said."I've played for about four years
and want everyone to have the chance to
play."
Owen, who is a pitcher and catcher,
came up with the project idea while watch-
ing MLB Network. A special on the
Challenger Division was on and he said it
looked like a great program.
"That's when I learned I wanted to do
something for the Challenger Division, but I
really got things going because George
N["ciiilrciiicr inspired me," Owen said."He
gave back so much to the community and
when he died this year I knew I had to do
something kind of in his honor to help the
community he did so much for."
Both the Bloomingdale and Northside
Little League Challenger Divisions will par-
ticipate in the event, which is called
Everyone Can Play,Jan. 15 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
There will be various stations demonstrating
different parts of baseball with Tampa
Catholic players and coaches.Those interest-
ed in participating must sign up by Dec. 31.
"Our biggest thing is giving everyone a
chance to play baseball," said Northside
coach Frank Reyes of Lutz. "I've been a
coach in the Challenger Division for 15

and A.J. Peterson. All will be part of Owen's project to teach Challenger Division players the
game they love. (Photos courtesy of Owen)


years and saw how it helped my son. He's
20 now and has Down syndrome and base-
ball was a way for him to make friends. I've
worked in mental health research, mainly
with kids, for many years and this program
really helps."
Reyes said the biggest improvement for
those who participate in the program is it
helps them work with other people. The
Northside league is located in the neighbor-
hood across the street from Gaither High
and most of the players are from Lutz, Land
O' Lakes, Odessa and Carrollwood.They cur-
rently have two Challenger teams that play
out of the location.
Reyes said he is also trying to create a
stronger link between the Challenger
Divisions in the area and connect more peo-
ple to the program. For more information,


call him at (813) 974-7415.
The most important thing to Sarwatka is
teaching the sport to the kids, but the
Tampa Catholic baseball coaches think it
will be just as beneficial for the team.
"We thought it would be something
great for Owen and for the team," said
Crusaders hitting coach Paul Russo, who is
also Owen's adviser for the project."Every
player at Tampa Catholic will be a part of it.
It will let them work with special needs kids
and let them appreciate their own health. I
think it will also be a team-building event
for them."
Russo also has a special connection with
special needs children. He was the area di-
rector for the Miracle League, which is
similar to the Challenger Division, for several
years. His also taught similar students.

"Watching these kids show their spirit
playing this game and getting enjoyment
out of it is well worth the effort to teach
them," Russo said."It's very special to see
and I know the players will get as much out
of it as the kids they show the game to."
Owen, a sophomore, is new to Tampa
Catholic this year after spending his fresh-
man year at Tampa Bay Tech.
"All the coaches were on board before
they even had all the details," said Suzanne
Sarwatka, Owen's mother." Everyone at the
school has been amazing with helping.The
key club, administration, the cheerleaders,
the team. Everyone has been helping and
spreading the word about it."
On the baseball field, Owen will start the
2011 season on the junior varsity team to
improve his four pitches - a fastball, slider,
curveball and changeup. The Crusaders
reached the Class 3A state semifinals last
season, losing to eventual champion The
Bolles School.
Owen has been in Boy Scouts of America
for about five years. He has been in three dif-
ferent troops and is finishing the program as
a lone scout, which means he is doing the
final achievements on his own.
"It's helped me with leadership quali-
ties," Owen said."Leadership is the biggest
thing and also with communications skills."

Vandals broke into the Old Lutz School this month, causing more than $500 worth of dam-
age. (File photo)

Old Lutz School building damaged by vandals


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.comrn
Three windows were broken at the Old
Lutz School building and $3.50 was stolen
when vandals broke into the building on
Dec. 5.
It may not seem like a big deal to people
who are unfamiliar with the school's histo-
ry, but the structure - which opened in
1927 - is a point of community pride.
Generations of Lutz residents went to
school there before it was closed in the mid-
1970s and at one point it was nearly
knocked down to make way to widen US
41.The community rallied around it, sparing
it from the wrecking ball, and it now serves
as a gathering spot for various events.
A group of citizens has formed the
Friends of the Old Lutz School Building to
raise money to cover the cost of insurance,
electricity and general upkeep.
And their pride in the building is strong.
That may be why the break-in, which oc-


curred sometime shortly after 6:30 on Dec. 5,
has drawn a strong reaction from that group.
It seems senseless that someone would
cause between $500 and $1,000 worth of
damage just to steal $3.50, said Phyllis
Hoedt, who is co-chairwoman of that
Friends of the Old Lutz School Building.
The incident was reported to the
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and
dusting was done for fingerprints, Hoedt said.
The break-in occurred sometime be-
tween 6:30 and 7 p.m., Hoedt said.
Gary Rogers was helping to bring back
some items from the Lutz Arts and Crafts
Festival that had been held at Lake Park,
Hoedt said.
When Rogers realized he had forgotten
his keys to the school, he went home to get
them.When he returned to the school, he
found the broken windows.
The schoolhouse is brightly decorated
now and open for an annual Christmas
house.The event is free, but donations are
welcome, Hoedt said.

Ground broken for Wesley Chapel hospital


Porter family sees dream
for community taking shape

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

When Don Porter was growing up in
what is now Wesley Chapel, his family was
one of six living in the area. Today it has
nearly 60,000 residents and will soon have
its first hospital.
The groundbreaking for the Wesley
Chapel Medical Center was Dec. 14 and
Don vividly remembered what healthcare
was like in the area decades ago.
"Our family bought the land for
Wiregrass Ranch in 1941,"'Don said."In 1943
a B-26 (airplane) crashed and the whole
crew died because there were no doctors or
hospital out here.Then when I was growing
up on the ranch we had a rider who was
thrown from his horse and he broke his
neck. That happened at 9 in the morning
and it took until after 9 that night for doc-
tors to get here to see him.
"Our family is proud to be a small part of
the hospital coming to Wesley Chapel," Don
continued."It's been part of a dream to see
this whole area develop."
J.D. Porter, Don's son, agrees with his fa-

"We love this area and it's time we had a
hospital,"J.D. said."This is a necessary and
important step to give the self-fulfilling need
to have a place to live, work and play."
John Harding, president and CEO of
Adventist Health System's (AHS) Tampa Bay
Region, said talks to build the hospital got
going three years ago as a joint venture be-

(UCH) and AHS.The two companies merged
Sept. 1.
"In the mid '90s, UCH and Adventist start-
ed talking and moved forward with this a
few years ago," said Harding, of Lutz."I never
thought we would have merged before the
hospital was built. It was back then when
we figured out it is better to work with each

everyone to know it was actually Norm
Stein. He took the first critical steps to make
this happen."
Stein retired as the president and CEO of
UCH when the companies merged.
"If you take a helicopter ride above here,
and I did two times, and fly over, you see a
Super Target and Super Walmart," Stein said.
"I said that area needs a hospital for sure if it
has those two."
Stein added that he will soon be living
just north of the facility and jokingly said it
was nice for AHS to build him a hospital.
After the groundbreaking, Harding said,
"I've been working on this for three years
and was responsible for putting the design
together. It is just a beautiful day that is finally
here. Not only forAdventist Health System,
but really for the community. Even though
we have a hospital in Zephyrhills,it's about
15 miles away, and UCH in the south, when it
comes to any kind of injury, time is extremely
important. Having this hospital for the com-

munity of Wesley Chapel, we just
couldn't be more glad to be here and
serve this area.
Brian Adams will become the fa-
cility's president and CEO in January.
He is currently the chief operating of-
ficer of Florida Hospital Altamonte,
several part ofAHS.
"Not everyone in a community
uses the library,"Adams said."Believe
it or not, not everyone goes to the
malls. But at some point everyone is
touched in a community by the hospital."
"This is a really exciting project for the
Wesley Chapel community to have the doc-
tors and physicians they want right by their
homes,"Adams continued. "We're actually
right across the street from Seven Oaks
where my home will be.Just having oppor-
tunity to be part of what's happening in
Pasco County, I'm thrilled to be part of it."
The hospital will take from 18-24
months to build and will use a design that
brings a natural element to healthcare while
keeping loved ones close by.
"Studies prove patients recover better in
an environment that allows them to relax,"
Adams said."Nothing is more relaxing than
nature. The rooms in the hospital are also
designed so the family can stay with the pa-
tient.That's the other piece that's important
to healthcare today - to have rooms that
are designed to be a part of the care. So in
addition to a great view, families will have
the ability to stay with together."

to 36 degrees or below, cold weather shel-

organizations in the community.
There is currently no funding available to
assist these organizations, but the need is
still there and blankets are scarce. If anyone
has blankets that they would be willing to
donate they can drop them off at the United

Holidays give Post Office something to celebrate


It was a blue letter she wrote to me
It's silver words she told
'Wanna be on the road to paradise
I want a lover who don't get old
-Fleetwood Mac

By Randall Grantham
Community Columnist

A Ah, the Yuletide
season is upon us -
the most joyous
time of the year for
many. For the young
children who anx-
iously await the
arrival of Santa
Claus. For retailers and online merchants.
And for the United States Postal Service.
The Post Office has lost millions of dol-
lars in revenue to shipping giants like UPS,
and then millions more because the rest of
the year people are using e-mail and the
Internet more to communicate.
But at this time of year, people still like
to send Christmas cards by mail. Real mail,
with little personal notes written in it, sent
in an actual envelope that has a stamp on
it and is physically delivered to its recipi-
ent. Remember when we used to do that
all the time?
Not only do I have some recollection of
it, I also have a collection of the stuff from
when it was the only game in town. It was-
n't sneered upon as "snail mail." It was
celebrated, cherished, ingrained into our
culture.The day, and eventually the time of
day, that the mail was delivered was
looked forward to as a high point.
My grandfather collected not only
stamps, but also mailings of every kind. He
had First Day Covers, when people actually
noted the day and place that a particular
stamp would be issued. They would send
empty envelopes, at first blank and, later,
adorned with pictures and slogans, with pay-
ment for the yet-to-be-issued postage receipt
(stamp), to that location just to have a first
day of issue post-marked envelope. I've got
tons of them.What a moneymaker that was.
He also had a large collection of post-
cards from around the nation and even the
world.They weren't to or from Grandpa,
in most cases, but were acquired by him
over years at shows and stamp meets. I
was actually able to sell most of them to


some antique store. I kept the ones that
had pictures of local landmarks, past and
present.Those did great before instant up-
loads and the Internet everywhere.
He even had about two shoeboxes full of
postings from the Clark(e) family back and
forth between Summit, in Marion County,
Fort Brook, Fort Dade on Egmont Key and
even from a ship anchored off the Cuban
coast during the Spanish/American War.
I've tried, without success, to locate any
of that family to see if they were interested in
them, so maybe I'll just read them and piece
together a bit of their frontier life. It might
make a good e-book or maybe even a movie.
One thing I didn't realize that people
did was to send "Grieving Cards."These are
notes that are sent out in specially decorat-
ed envelopes announcing the death of
someone to others who otherwise would-
n't know for some time.
The letters were in an envelope that
was outlined in black or had somber black
designs painted on it. These are called
"mourning covers." Those seemed to go
out with the advent of the telephone.
The ones I've got are very sad and
stoic. Sad, but very intimate and personal
- just the way the Internet and e-mail and
texts and IMs are not! And not profitable
for the Post Office either.
So I'm glad to see this mailing season ar-
rive. We send out cards every year. It ain't
easy, certainly not as easy as a mass e-mail
blast, but it's part of the tradition and adds a
very personal feel to this time of year. It is
worth the time and effort to sit down and ad-
dress all the cards and write a note to each
person and then to lovingly sign each card.
Fortunately we've got our mailing list
on computer and can generate mailing la-
bels for the entire batch. And this year,
once again, we'll have the print shop em-
boss each one with our personal greeting
and signatures. Now all we have to do pay
the postage and put the stamps on. Oh
wait, there's an app for that.
Merry Christmas and Happy NewYear.

FOOD DRIVE, from page 1
much food they've collected in various cate-
gories.They'll practice making estimation of
the food by weight.And, they'll write about
their experiences, too,Weis said.
The project also reinforces lessons on
the need for good nutrition and why their
bodies need fruits and vegetables,Weis said.
And, it gives children a chance to con-
tribute, she said. Many of these youngsters
have no first-hand experience with poverty
and are unaware that there are people who
are truly hungry,Weis said.This broadens their
scope, and she hopes will help them develop
an appreciation for community service.
In addition to the canned goods they col-
lect, the school is sharing some of the
produce it grows in its garden.
Children at Learning Gate grow vegeta-
bles from seed, which they transplant into
the garden and they work in the garden to
help take care of the plants.
They grow all sorts of things, said stu-


dents inWeis' class.They grow peas, pump-
kins, squash, lettuce, pole beans, cucumbers,
tomatoes, carrots, eggplant, cabbages and
mustard greens, they said.
They also grow rosemary, basil, mint and
other herbs.
They'll use some of that bounty to feed
the hungry.
During its first month, the school collect-
ed 1,260 pounds of vegetables, making a
sizable dent in its overall goal of collecting
3,000 pounds of food this year.
In December, a short month because of
the holidays, the school surpassed its quota,
collecting 1,079 cans.
Last year, it set a goal of 1,500 pounds
and slightly exceeded 3,000 pounds.
The project is just one more example of
how Learning Gate promotes hands-on
learning,Weis said. She hopes other schools
will set up similar programs to help feed the
hungry - while driving home life-long les-
sons for students.


HEROES, from page 1
termath of a car accident near the intersec-
tion of Dale Mabry and North Lakeview
Drive, just south of Lutz.
The car was on fire, but that did not stop
Shepard. He ran across the road, kicked in
the windshield and got the mother and
child out safely.
Shepard is a member of Gaither's JROTC
and he credits his quick actions with what
he has learned through the program.
Shepard's JROTC instructor Senior Chief
Ed Donohue submitted Shepard's name for
the honor after learning about the award
from principal Marie Whelan.
"I thought what he did was heroic,"
Donohue said."For him to put himself out
like that; a lot of people wouldn't have done
that, especially a teenage kid.
"He's done a great job for us," Donohue
continued."He's responsible.Volunteers a lot
of his time to the unit. Makes good grades.
He's a real good kid."
Gaither's JROTC commanding officer
Joseph Scott, a senior, said no one in the unit
believed Shepard when he told them about
what he did.
"We're all really surprised when we
heard what he did for that family," Scott said.
"We didn't expect it out of him.To be that
courageous to jump into action like that.
When he first told us we had our doubts.We


just thought he was messing around with
us. He's a comical kid and likes to joke
around all the time."
The award Shepard received for winning
is sitting in one of Gaither's trophy cases.
Shepard said he plans on attending the
University of Tampa and join its ROTC pro-
gram.After graduating he wants to join either
the Navy or Air Force for a four-year term,
and then become a law enforcement agent.
Bermudez, a senior on the Sickles High
cross-country team, was nominated for the
honor after he bought new running shoes
for Abdin Fator, a sophomore on the squad.
Fator was born in Sudan and moved to the
United States in 2003. Bermudez used the
money from his 17th birthday to buy Fator
the new shoes and acted as a mentor for
him all year.
Allen, an honor roll student, was up for
the award for helping turn another child's life
around. She was asked be a teacher to check
on an upset student in the restroom, and
found a child had taken a large amount of
medication.Allen stayed with the other girl
and convinced her not only to get the medi-
cine out of her system, but also to seek help.
More than 1,000 children from across
Tampa Bay have been honored through St.
Joseph's Children's Hospital Kids are Heroes
program.About 100 nominations were re-
ceived for the honor this year.

blonde-haired, blue-eyed, blue-
dressed. As a child, every
Christmas, my sister got a blonde-
haired, blue-eyed, blue-dressed doll F
and I got a brunette-haired, green-
eyed, pink-dressed doll. Oh, how I
yearned for a blonde-haired, blue-

THE CHRISTMAS BUNNY? \
You've heard about
the Easter bunny, right, bur
what about some
Christmas bunnies?
Taylor Ferrante's holi-
day wish list includes "a
dozen, real bunny rabbits."
The third-grader from
Lutz Elementary school -
wants to give the bun-
nies to her mom.
"My mom had fun with her bunny rab-
bit when she was a kid and I think the
bunnies would make her happy," the 9-|
vear-old writes



HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS
George Smith has vivid memories of the
year when he received his fa-
vorite present: a small metal
wind-up, spring-driven trac-
tor with rubber treads.
'This was Christmas
1935. Times were tough. I
was born in Lutz and was 8
years old; my sister was 5
years old," writes 83-year-old
Smith, a Lutz resident.
"Mr. and Mrs. Means had
no children and decided to give us Christmas by
having someone with a bell come through the or-
ange grove as Santa," George notes. The kindly
elderly couple lived across US 41 from
%, George's granddad's house

HEY, HOW ABOUT A GIFT
FOR SANTA?
Second-grader Clayton Topdemir
came up with a novel idea for whom he
would give a gift to
this holiday season.
He'd give a gift to
Santa - a Christmas
tree,in fact.
Why would he
do that? So Santa
could celebrate
Christmas, too,"
writes the 7-year-oM]
who lives in Lutz and attends

A WISH THAT CAME TRUE
When Savanna
Maslen thinks about
her favorite present, it
doesn't take her long to
decide what it was: It
was herAriat boots.
"It mattered sooo
much because all year
until Christmas I was
saying,'I want boots for
Christmas; "notes the 15-
year-old Zephyrhills High
student.
(Who gave her the
gift? Whv. Santa Claus. of course!')

A DIFFERENT KIND OF MUSIC BOX
Jo Ann Massengill was just 1 0
years old when she received he-r
most treasured gift.
"When we (the family) finished
opening our gifts on Christmas Eve
my dad gathered up all the wrappings
and took them out to the garbage,'
the Zephryhills woman recalls.
Then he came back in, an-
nouncing:"Look what I found on
the front porch."
JoAnn saw a huge suitcase. It -
turned out to be a 120 bass ac-
cordion.
"My parents weren't rich and
couldn't afford specialties like tlu�, the Zcphyrtllll
woman wrote "I cried I was so excited"

PRESENTS l
If 10-year-old
Jessica Davison had . I

a "My Little Pony" to
play with.
The Woodland

student wants to help
out the program be.
cause "Place does not
have a lot of "My Little Pony (toys)" and a
bunch of girls like playing with them."The
Zephryhills girl has done her part: She gave
\ Place some of her ponies.


A GIFT OF GOOD SCENTS
If Haley Schiessl could give anyone anything
that she wanted, her mom would |
be the lucky recipient.
Haley knows just exactly what i
would get for her mom, too: "I
would get lotion and perfume,"
the 9-year-old Lutz girl writes.
Why did she choose her
mom?
"Because my mom is out of
the ordinary and she's always there
when I look back," notes the fourth-grader

NO SHOPPING REQUIRED
Mark Jordan's family didn't need to

New cast of Seahawks wrestlers ready to soar


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Sunlake High's wrestling team lost eight
starters to graduation from last year's team,
but there are 35 Seahawks ready to fill that
void this season.
"Our best asset is our numbers," said sec-
ond-year Sunlake coach Russ Schenk, also
the school's athletic director. "Each week
our lineup changes as new kids improve
and rise to the top.
"We're taking baby steps," Schenk contin-
ued."We're about 50-50 with guys who have
experience wrestling to new guys. We're
progressing faster than I anticipated. The
kids are motivated and working hard every
day."
Schenk is still learning who the best
wrestlers will be at the end of the year.
"Right now it's about mat time," Schenk
said. "It's all about getting the younger guys
enough mat time so they get all the moves
and pick the ones that work best for them.
Once we give them enough chances during
the season we'll know who our 14 guys are
come districts."
Last year, the Seahawks placed third in
Class 2A, District 8 tournament and sent 10
wrestlers to regionals, an accomplishment
considering the level of wrestling in the
area.
"It's probably the second hardest region
in the state when you look at all three class-
es," Schenk said."If you get to states out of
this area you're almost guaranteed to place
because you've been facing the best."
Only the top six in states place. Only one
Seahawk has ever accomplished that feat -
Jarrett Baker. The Sunlake graduate was
fourth in states in 2009, the same year he
was the Sunshine Athletic Conference, dis-
trict and regional champion. He has
returned to his school as a volunteer assis-
tant to help the wrestling team get to the
top.

some moves in practice.

tice. (Photos by Glenn Gefers of www.Photosby3g.com)


Seahawks coach Russ Schenk shows Michael Dines the coach
can still bring it during a recent practice.


"He's been a big help, especially for the
bigger guys like Brandon Franklin (285
pounds)," Schenk said."We didn't have guys
his size to go up against in practice before
and I'm too old to jump in there every day.
Jarrett has been able to work with him and
show him what a big guy has to do to win."


Brandon Franklin takes down volunteer assist
graduate Jarrett Baker.


Wesley Wood warms up
before practice.


One wrestler who is making a push to
add his name next to Baker's on the wall in
the Seahawks gym is senior 145-pounder
Sean Hart. He reached regionals as both a
freshman and junior.
"As a freshman it was overwhelming,"
Hart said."I was just amazed by all the good
wrestlers that were
there. As a junior it
wasn't like that and I
was just trying to do as
well as I could.The ex-
perience helped.... I'd
like to place in states.
That's been a dream
since I was a fresh-
man."
Hart, who started
the season with a 4-0
record, is the team-cap-
tain this year and acts
like another coach for
the squad; giving team-
mates pointers on
technique and when
ant and Sunlake to use certain moves.


"I'll watch the


Sunlake graduate Jarrett Baker (left) talks
with Seahawks coach Russ Schenk.

younger guys and when they do something
that doesn't work I talk with them about
why they should have done something dif-
ferent or how they can improve what they
did," Hart said. "If it works, we talk about
why it did work.Wrestling might be an indi-
vidual sport, but I like to make all of our
team better. Overall that makes us all better
when we're on the mat."
Junior WesleyWood, who competes at ei-
ther 112 or 119 pounds, also has the goal of
placing in states.
"I'm working on all new things to get to
that level,"Wood said."Coach has been great
teaching me what I need to do to get to that
point. It was weird going through two
coaches between my freshman and sopho-
more year and having the same coach is
making it easier this year. He knows what
we do well and what we need to do better."
Somewhat new to the team, but not to
the sport, is sophomore John Ortiz, who
competes at 112 pounds.As a freshman he
was two matches away from qualifying for
states.
"I actually had the kid pinned, but he's
crazy strong," Ortiz said."I couldn't finish
him, but it was a really good experience and
made me a lot better. It makes me push
harder in practice to get to the point I can
overcome someone that strong."
All three wrestlers picked up the sport
because of their family. Wood's father Lee
and Hart's father William competed in high
school. Ortiz started wrestling at a young
age because of his older brother Eddie.
"I wanted to be as good as him," Ortiz
said. "He was sixth in the state at 112
pounds in 2007 with Wesley Chapel (High).
I started wrestling with the Wesley Chapel
Wrestling Club to be like him."
Like a competitive brother, Ortiz said he
wants to finish better than sixth in states.
"I want to be able to rub that in his face
a little," Ortiz said jokingly.

New travel team comes up 'golden'


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

While the high school softball season is
still many weeks away, travel ball with
Tampa Bay Velocity Gold has been in high
gear for months.
The new competitive travel team was
created about a year ago by Saint Leo
University graduate and former Gaither
High coach Heather Castle.The team prac-
tices at Roy Haynes Park in Forest Hills, but
players come from around Tampa Bay to
learn from Castle.
"We've got players from east Pasco, west
Pasco, Lutz, Brooksville,Tampa, Riverview,
Clearwater," Castle said."Really from all over
the place and they are all good, let me tell
you.We've got some players on this team."
Castle has been a travel ball coach for
five years and also coached high school for
four seasons. She created Velocity to help in-
crease the interest in the sport across Tampa
Bay and also as a way to get local players no-
ticed by colleges.
"Basically to get schools interested in
you, you have to play travel ball in showcase
tournaments," Castle said. "That's the only
way to get a lot of places to see you.That's
what I want is to make them better and get
them signed."
Center fielder Lauren Thompson has al-
ready seen the benefit from playing on the
team.
"High school softball is really political,"
Thompson said. "Here it's about just playing
and I've already had Columbia and Virginia
show some interest in me from the expo-
sure from the team."
Thompson and Velocity catcher Nikki
Sedivy both said Castle is a very tough
coach when it comes to practice, but only
because that is the best way to get better.
"They aren't easy practices," Sedivy said.


Velocity Gold with teddy bears they collected and donated to All Children's Hospital in Tampa.


"It's not like she's mean or anything like that
because she's easy to talk to and listens. She
just wants to make you better."
Castle said of her style in practice, "I
make sure to push them. I've seen other
practices where the players and coaches
mess around more than practice.That's not
going to help them get better."
Thompson has been a part of the pro-
gram for several months and said she has
seen improvement in her hitting. Sedivy said
she most wants to improve her speed and
footwork behind the plate to better at
throwing out base stealers.
"We've still got a very young team,"
Castle said. "I mean Sedivy is only 14, so
right now we're still working on the little
things and then we'll really start going to
the big tournaments in Las Vegas, Georgia
and Texas."
Along with the goal of getting players
signed, the squad was established to help
children who cannot afford the sometimes


very pricey travel ball sea-
son.
"It can be thousands of
dollars to play travel ball
now," said Velocity presi-
dent and assistant Bob
Gambino."With us it's just
$135 for the year.We've al-
ways found a way to help -
kids who want to play." -
Gambino added the
team is looking for playing
sites in Pasco County for a. .-.
softball complex. He said Velocity Gold ca
there is no such area big (Photos courtesy
enough for large softball
tournaments in Hillsborough County, but
thinks there is a chance something could
happen in the northern area.
Castle has also worked with the players
to better the community.They recently did
several charity drives to collect new teddy
bears they then gave to All Children's

"Being active in the community is some-

show them making a difference is the right
thing to do."

** Two Front Teeth **
There are lots of funny Christmas songs out there. One such song is "All I Want for
Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth." Donald Yetter Gardner wrote the song in 1944 while
teaching music to schoolchildren in Smithtown, NY.
With Christmas just around the comer, Gardner asked his young students .1 i ,r L.
wanted -i N r �: '. they answered, Gardner noticed that almost all of them had lost one,
if not both, of their front teeth.
Inspired, Gardner wrote "All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" in about
half an hour. Spike Jones and the City Slickers recorded the song, and it was an instant
hit, climbing to the top of the music charts. Since then, the song has become a Christmas
favorite that has been recorded by many others including Alvin and the Chipmunks.
