Lutz company


expands its scope

By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
When buildings go up too quickly,
problems can result.
That's happened quite a bit in recent
years, as construction was sped up to save
money, said Lou Theberge, a division man-
ager for Southern Independent Testing
Agency Inc., in Lutz.
When a project is pushed too quickly in
the quest to control expenses, testing of the
building's systems some-
times gets short shrift -
and costly problems de- More
velop later,Theberge said. Business
That's one of the rea- news,
sons why the Lutz pages 9,18
company, which has op-
erated in Florida for 30
years, decided to branch out and add"build-
ing commissioning" to its list of services.
Put simply, building commissioning is a
systematic approach to verify that a build-
ing's support systems have been installed
properly and are performing according to
the approved construction documents.
The process also ensures that the
building's installed equipment meets the
owner's intended operational, mainte-
nance and energy efficiency needs.
The effectiveness of commissioning in
reducing energy use has been document-
ed by a number of organizations,
including the U.S. Green Building Council.
The Lutz company decided to branch
out to offer the service because company
leaders recognized the growing demand
for the service and they wanted to gener-
ate more work to ensure they would not
need to lay off any employees during this
economic downturn, said Brian Kaupp,
company vice president.
His dad, Chuck Kaupp, brought the
company to Florida from Buffalo, N.Y.,in
1980.
The company, which began with
Chuck and his father, has a long history of
testing, balancing and adjusting heating,
air-conditioning and ventilation systems.
It officially launched its commissioning
division in October, Brian Kaupp said.

Helping Injured People

It's hard to predict what kinds of cars
will show up at the Al and Ida Silver
Memorial Classic Car Show.
Car lovers are "liable to see anything
there," said Larry Broga, a car enthusiast with
years of experience in the car world, who
has been tapped to judge the entries.
"There could be as many as 100 or as
few as 20," Broga said."It's what is called an
open show," he said, meaning it could attract
everything from antiques to exotics, from
hot rods to street rods to customs.
The event will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Saturday, Jan. 15 at the Land O' Lakes
Community Center, 5401 Land O' Lakes
Blvd.
Weather permitting, the shownn shine"
classic car competition could be a big draw,
Broga said. (A rain date has been set for Jan.
22).
On the one hand, it's a new event, so it's
hard to guess how much enthusiasm it will
generate. On the other hand, there's no
other car show that day so it could pull in
lots of enthusiasts who want to show off
their beauties, Broga said.
Broga said he will judge the cars by eval-
uating how much effort it took to get them
into tip-top shape.

District poised to shift some school boundaries


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

The Pasco County School
Board is set to take action on
school boundary changes aimed
at relieving overcrowded condi-
tions at Wiregrass Ranch High
and John Long Middle schools.
School board chairwoman
Joanne Hurley said she under-
stands that parents care deeply
about which schools their chil-
dren attend, often even
choosing where they live based
on which schools serve their
neighborhood.
However, Hurley said, the
school district cannot guarantee
that boundaries won't change
because they must be able to re-
spond to an area's population
growth or decline.
Moving boundaries in one
direction may please some par-
ents, but may displease others,
she said.The board's final vote
will likely leave some parents
"intensely satisfied" while leav-
ings others "intensely
displeased."
The proposed boundaries,
recommended by a committee
of district staff and administra-
tors, school principals and
parents, received unanimous
first-round approval by the
school board on Dec. 21. The
school board is set to take its
second and final vote at its 6
p.m. meeting on Jan. 18.
Besides relieving overcrowd-
ed conditions, the shifts seek to
better balance out enrollments,
said Chris Williams, director of


planning for Pasco County
Schools.
In essence, the proposed
boundary changes would:
* Shift students in New
River,Ashley Pines and an area
near Morris Bridge Road from
Wiregrass Ranch High toWesley
Chapel High
* Reassign students from
New River and Ashley Pines
from John Long Middle School
intoWeightman Middle School
Shift students living in neigh-
borhoods west of Morris Bridge
Road into Stewart Middle
School
* Assign students attending
Cox Elementary in Dade City to
Pasco Middle and Pasco High
schools, instead of Weightman
Middle and Wesley Chapel
High.
Wiregrass Ranch High, at
2909 Mansfield Blvd., has 2,132
students, representing 127 per-
cent of the school's permanent
capacity. It has 18 portable class-
rooms.
John Long Middle, at 2025
Mansfield Blvd., has an enroll-
ment of 1,784 students,which
represents 134 percent of the
school's permanent capacity. It
has 23 portable classrooms.
The proposal to assign Cox
Elementary students to Pasco
Middle and Pasco High would
keep those students much clos-
er to home for their middle and
high school years.
The students have been
bused out of their community
to Wesley Chapel for the past
decade to help diversify


Weightman Middle andWesley
Chapel High.
The committee said that bus-
ing is no longer needed because
the demographics in Wesley
Chapel have changed.
In proposing the new
boundaries, the committee con-
sidered such things as impacts
to the district's transportation
and special education services,
as well as the socioeconomic
makeup of the schools,Williams
said.
It also attempted to avoid
splitting neighborhoods and
considered such things as
school feeder patterns and fu-
ture growth,Williams said.
"We try to be as objective as
possible," Williams said. "We
don't want to shift too many
kids.We try to disrupt as few as
possible."
The proposed boundary
changes do not affect Zephyrhills
High or Centennial Middle.
The boundary changes will
not affect incoming seniors at
Wiregrass Ranch High.
It will, however, affect all
school choice students who at-
tend a school affected by a
boundary change, Williams
said.
All of those students will
have to reapply for the choice
assignment, Hurley said. Even in-
coming seniors atWiregrass will
have to reapply for a choice as-
signment, she said.
The district has less flexibili-
ty in choice assignments
because of the state's class size
limits, Hurley said.

New building, opportunities


coming to Saint Leo


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

An $11 million building going up
at Saint Leo University signals the first
new classroom building on the cam-
pus in decades.
It's like going from the 1960s to
the 21st century in one fell swoop.
School leaders are excited by how
they'll be able to use the latest in tech-
nology to better prepare their
students to play a meaningful role in
their future work places, whether
they're working for an employer or
running a business of their own.
"On a very basic level, it will give
us the physical resources
we need," said Michael
Nastanski, dean of the
Donald R. Tapia School of
Business at Saint Leo
University.
Burgeoning growth
during the past decade has
forced the business school
to use every bit of class- Michael N


room and office space available on the
Saint Leo campus, Nastanski said.
"We're the largest Catholic business
school in the United States," he said.
Besides its Saint Leo campus, the univer-
sity has 17 regional education centers
and the Center for Online Learning.
The new business building will
allow the university to bring all of its
business students and faculty mem-
bers on the Saint Leo campus under
one roof.
Beyond pulling people together,
the building itself is designed to foster
collaboration and creativity, Nastanski
said.
It has many gathering places,
where faculty members can
discuss ideas and where fac-
ulty members and students
can continue discussions
that began in the class-
room.
The building's technolo-
gy will enable students to
work together on projects

and then share their results with
the class, Nastanski said.
The technology used in
today's workplace is one of the
huge drivers of change, said
Lorrie McGovern, who joined
the university in October as
head of graduate programs in the Lorrie Mc
school of business.
The building's technology enables stu-
dents to hear and see lectures being
delivered by experts at one of the universi-
ty's satellite locations.
The building also is designed to accom-
modate gatherings with corporate leaders
and economic development groups, such as
the Pasco Economic Development Council.
Such exchanges can be very beneficial to
students, as well as to companies seeking fu-
ture employees to join their team,
McGovern said.
It also is enabling the university to add a
computer science program, Nastanski said.
The new structure adds 50,000 square
feet to the university's main campus. It in-
cludes nine classrooms, a large lecture hall
which doubles as a boardroom, computer
labs and a broadcast technology suite.
Nastanski said he can't wait for the build-
ing to open. He believes it will help the
university prepare graduates to be innovative


thinkers who are capable of help-
ing their future employees or their
own businesses to use technology
to reduce costs, increase revenue
and improve customer service.
The university's school of
business bears the name of
Donald R.Tapia, an alumnus who
govern donated $4 million for the build-
ing, the largest single gift in the
university's history.
Tapia received a bachelor's degree in
business administration through the Center
for Online Learning at the university and re-
turned for an online MBA.
Before McGovern joined Saint Leo, she
said she was looking at the university's web-
site and read about Tapia's donation. Tapia
grew up in a rough neighborhood in Detroit
and now owns a multi-million dollar whole-
sale business outside of Phoenix. McGovern
said she was impressed that an adult, online
graduate had made such a large contribu-
tion.Those kinds of donations are rare, she
said.
"I thought,'Wow, something exciting is
going on " McGovern said.
The plans for the building are impres-
sive, she said."That's what you see," she said.
But it was the camaraderie and culture
that could lead to such a gift that drew
McGovern to Saint Leo.

Local chapter building seven homes

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The 81 homes dedicated by Habitat for
Humanity of East & Central Pasco helped
the national organization reach a milestone
in 2010, and the local group has more
planned for 2011.
Habitat for Humanity dedicated its
400,000th house last December.The East &
Central Pasco chapter is currently building
seven houses for needy families in Land O'
Lakes, Zephyrhills, Dade City and
Lacoochee. The latest started Jan. 8 at 11
a.m. when Gail Emmanuel saw the ground-
breaking of her future home in Zephyrhills.
"I can't believe it," Emmanuel said at the
dedication."To think people are helping us
get a house. It's overwhelming."
Along with the 400,000 homes dedicat-
ed worldwide during the last 35 years,
Habitat for Humanity has helped more than
2 million receive better housing.
"We are happy to have helped Habitat
for Humanity reach this important mile-
stone in bettering communities across the
country," said Stephanie Black, director of
family services with the East & Central
Pasco chapter."With continued support of
our sponsors and volunteers, we'll address
affordable housing needs in east and central
Pasco County."
The East & Central Pasco chapter was
formed last year when the separate units in
central and east Pasco merged to pool re-
sources and build more houses.Two homes
were dedicated in 2010, one in Zephyrhills
and the other in Dade City.
Last year, Habitat for Humanity dedicated
nearly 80,000 homes by repairing, rehabili-
tating or building new ones. The
organization has set a goal to get that num-
ber to 100,000 families helped globally each
year by 2013.
"We are pleased that even in this difficult
economy, Habitat for Humanity has been

able to help a record number of families
around the world have a better place to
live," said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat
for Humanity International."Our affiliates
are the backbone of Habitat's efforts.Their
hard work and dedication have made this
milestone possible.We are grateful for the
work of Habitat for Humanity of East &
Central Pasco."
Generally, Habitat homes in east and cen-
tral Pasco cost $97,000, which includes the
land.They are usually 1,150 square feet and
include three bedrooms and one bathroom.
Black said they are affordable to low-income
families because there is no profit included
in the sale of the house and no interest
charged on the mortgage, which are fi-
nanced for 30 years.
The East & Central Pasco chapter has
fundraising events throughout the area and
receives money from churches, business, or-
ganizations and individuals along with
support from local government. It also raises
money through sales at its ReStores.
Anyone interested in donating time or
money to the effort can do so by calling the
East & Central Pasco chapter at (352) 567-
1444 or visiting www.habitatpasco.org.

Christmas House draws thousands


One Lutz family brings

home annual quilt

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

More than 2,500 people from 38 Florida
towns, 14 states and four countries saw the
14th annual Christmas House at the Old
Lutz School, but only one family could win
the big prize.
Lutz residentAnn Parker won the raffle
for the fifth annual Christmas quilt, a sur-
prise she was not expecting.
"I just entered to help support the func-
tion," Parker said."It's the first time we've
come to see the house and it's something
special we'll do in the future. It's a good
thing that everyone should see."
Parker brought her two sons Charlie, 4,
and Harry, 3, to see the house after hearing
about how nice the display inside was.
While the majority of people who came
to the house were from Lutz and Land O'
Lakes, according to signatures in the guest
book, many also came from Odessa,Wesley
Chapel, Zephyrhills, San Antonio, New
Tampa and many other towns in Pasco and
Hillsborough counties. Visitors also came
from places like California, Canada,
Denmark, Finland and Columbia.
The exact number of participants was
not available as many people bought more
than one ticket, but $290 was raised in the
raffle.That money is going to the Citizens of
the Old Lutz School to help maintain the
nearly 85-year-old building.

"We need to replace two windows that
were busted recently when some people
broke in," said Phyllis Hoedt, member of the
citizens group. "It's an old building and
needs work to keep it for future genera-
tions."
The quilt is made each year by Betsie
Everett, who is currently working on the
one for 2011.

SR 54 widening causing problems for drivers, troops


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

When Pasco County started the widen-
ing of SR 54 in Wesley Chapel it was
promised to pave the way for a more con-
nected region, but a pair of glitches have
arisen near Boyette Road.
Since the traffic pattern changed last
December, the 10 or more semi trucks that
come by the Wesley Chapel Business Center
each week cannot leave without turning
across both lanes of traffic and the blocked
off portion to the south. Support The Troops
Inc., which sends supplies to U.S. troops
serving abroad, is located in that complex.
"It's a big mess," said Bob Williams,
Support The Troops founder."The trucks just
can't make that turn. If you've got a truck
worth more than $100,000, you're not going
to risk it getting damaged to drop off dona-
tions to us. I've already seen problems with
donations because of the turning."
Williams shares the building with two
companies owned by his sons.
Pasco chief engineer James Widman said
the county has already increased the turning
radius out of the center from 35 to 50 feet.
"Trucks should be able to turn in that
amount of space,"Widman said.
Williams' complaint with the project
does not end with the turning radius. He
also claims the county promised him a wall
would be built between SR 54 and the cen-
ter to protect it if someone hits the
building. Currently, only five feet and a small
guardrail separate the structure from the
thousands of vehicles that drive by every
day.
"We've just stopped using our corner of-
fice near the road because we know it's just
a matter of time before someone crashes
into us, especially when the other lanes
open and more people drive though,"
Williams said. "It's sad that you reach an
agreement in good faith with someone and
they back out."
Williams said it was a verbal agreement.
Widman said no promise was ever made. He
said he met withWilliams,who lives in Lutz,
and agreed to present the idea of building a
dividing wall to the county lawyer. In the
end he says it was decided they would help
Williams build the barrier, but would not


pay for it.
"We compensated Mr.Williams when we
bought the land to do the project,"Widman
said."The amount we gave him was not only
for the land, but also to account for anything,
such as a wall, that he would need to build."
The amount Williams received was un-
available from the county, which paid $74.2
million total to acquire right-of-way for the
project.
Widman, who emphasized he believes
Williams is a good man, said such a dividing
wall would cost $40,000 to $60,000.
"They'll eventually do something, but
Pasco County likes to wait until two or
three people get killed before they do any-
thing,"Williams said."Everybody is incensed
by this.You can't even get to the post office
without nearly getting into an accident."
Williams has created a temporary solu-
tion to the problem, placing a steel overseas
shipping container filled with 100,000
pounds of anything he could find next to
his building on his property.
"It will prevent anyone from driving
through our building and hopefully will get
the county to move a little faster,"Williams
said.
The Wesley Chapel Post Office is on
Boyette just west of the business center.
Problems there began when the intersec-
tion of Boyette and SR 54 lost its traffic
signal when the lanes shifted.
Megan Hill nearly got into an accident
turning onto Boyette to mail a Christmas
package. She lives east of the post office and


Bob Williams moving some of the donations he receives each week for the troops.


the new configuration of SR 54 made it diffi-
cult for her to see when to turn.
"You're right up against the buildings
and then the turn is just past them," Hill said.
"I hit the brakes to turn right and the per-
son behind me had to go into the other lane
of traffic to not hit me. I've lived here for 10
years, but I almost missed that turn I've
made about 100 times."
Widman said he has suggested putting

the 50 feet they currently have. (Photos courtesy of Bob Williams)


signs up to alert drivers the turn for the post
office is near.
"The other problem is we have the
wrong street name on the new traffic sig-
nal," Widman said. "That new road that
comes through east of Boyette is called
Vandine Road. For some reason the Boyette
sign was put on top of the new light."
That new road comes south where
Boyette begins its S-curve. It is named after a
family that owned the land the county
bought to build the street.Widman said it is
designed to take traffic off Boyette, which is
why it received the signal that Boyette lost.
"We had to remove the light because the
distance was too close to have two as part
of the access management plan for the
road,"Widman said."It has to meet state re-
quirements.Traffic on Boyette should taper
off as people get used to using Vandine
Road instead.We understand change is diffi-
cult and we aren't perfect.We'll do what we
can to put the right signage out for drivers."
Widman added the project to widen SR
54 to six lanes from 1-75 to Curley Road is
well ahead of schedule and he thinks it
should be done before next March as was
originally planned.

We better stop,
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down.
-Buffalo Springfield, For What It's Worth

By Randall Grantham

I was visited by
the "Ghost of The
Justice SystemYet to
Come" this
Christmas season.
Actually I was
haunted by all three
of the legendary
ghosts, but only the
future ghost had anything interesting to
show me.
The past ghost saw the end of the
dunk test for witches and the advent of
fingerprint and blood-spatter evidence.
The Ghost of the Justice System Present
had DNA exonerations in the face of sup-
posed rock-solid eyewitness ID and/or
confession and HD video of the action.
But the ghost of what's yet to come in the
justice system and law enforcement busi-
ness brought some pretty incredible (and
scary!) stuff.
In the future, the StarTrek/SciFi gim-
micks are for real. Our cell phones, after
first trying to emulate Kirk's communica-
tor, are now way cooler than what he had
- at least the ones on the original series.
And soon, we will be able to detect, iden-
tify and follow the smallest DNA residue,
like the ion trails tracked by Spock.
We now have ankle bracelets that
allow the state to monitor their wearer's
location. Similar devices monitor a per-
son's body chemistry to detect and alert
authorities if the wearer is having an adult
beverage.
In the future we will have one device
that will show both location and sub-
stances being ingested by the subject. I
hope we can also hook them up to a so-
cial network to alert those interested in
the location of the party.
Currently some police departments
have cameras mounted on their cars that
are hooked to computers that do nothing
but scan license plates and check them
for "hits;" that is, to see if they're stolen.
They are being tied in to state DMV
and other records to check for much
more though.They will be able to instant-
ly read your tag, even in the dark, and
compare it an RFID signal from your car,
or maybe even your passport or Universal
Identification Card (that's coming too).

In addition to stolen cars getting hits,
expired DLs, unpaid tickets, even over-
due library books might get you pulled
over. The existing memory capacity al-
ready allows some agencies to search
their database to see if your tag was spot-
ted in the last 30 days and pinpoint
where you were.
Police now have dogs that are trained
and dispatched to selected locations to
sniff for bombs, drugs or even bodies.
Soon, every cop on the street will have
his or her own personal tricorder that
will be able to detect the slightest trace
of drugs, weapons or maybe even Cuban
cigar tobacco on people and in cars they
pass on their beat.
I've written before about the govern-
ment being able to turn on a suspect's
cell phone and use it to listen in on what
was thought to be a private conversa-
tion. They will be able to do that and
activate the video app, too.
And tracking a person's movements is
so easy it's ridiculous. With GPS, they
don't need to look at toll transponders
and cellphone calls for bits of data.The
GPS trackers don't even need to be
planted (or implanted) on us or our cars.
We strap them on our hips and can be
located or tracked for days and even
weeks into the future or the past.
Your smart phone is busy gathering
all that info every second of every day
and it's available to marketers and au-
thorities alike. For a price. Or with a
warrant.
A lot for a criminal to be afraid of,
right? Also enough to give pause to all
those who thought George Orwell's"Big
Brother" was too far out to ever be real.
Between Big Business and Big
Government, we already have everything
needed in place to make that a reality
And, just as predicted, the threat did-
n't come from beyond our borders.We
did it to ourselves! In the name of con-
venience, in the name of national
security, in the name of fun (we can't get
enough of the latest widgets and gizmos)
we sold ourselves out.
And we were cheap.

Helping the lawn

survive the chill
By B.J. Jarvis
Pasco Extension Horticulture Agent
Who would have thought Pasco
County would again see weather as
weird as last year? It seems to have al-
ready started with unusually cold
temperatures accompanied by drying
winds. What can gardeners do to help
the lawn survive?
At this time of year, talk is usually
about preparing turfgrass for dormancy,
but not in 2011. Freezing temperatures
have already turned lawns brown, but
don't panic. Even in sunny Florida, turf-
grass needs a rest and dormancy is a
normal, healthy part of the plant cycle.
Hopefully the lawn has not been fer-
tilized since early fall. An actively
growing turf has little resistance to cold
or freezing temperatures. For the same
reason, the next fertilization should not
occur until at least mid-March.When day-
light is longer and temperatures are
warmer in the spring, green growth will
start again. Do not try to push early
green-up by fertilizing early.New growth
can be easily damaged by another freeze.
Weed and feed products for pre-emer-
gent weed controls are not especially
effective in central Florida. If my lawn is
any indication, the weeds seem to take
advantage of the fertilizer part, and the
turf sees no benefit. So save yourself time
and money by only treating with a pre-
emergent to control warm season
weeds.Timing is critical when using pre-
emergents. Apply these around
Valentine's Day when day temperatures
reach 65-70 degrees for four or five con-
secutive days.
When turfgrass is not actively grow-
ing, it requires less water. From


November through February, your lawn
will only need to be irrigated every 10-
14 days.Turn the irrigation controller off
and skip a week. If it rains at least 3/4 of
an inch during that time, you won't need
to turn on the system to irrigate.
Purchase a rain gauge if you don't al-
ready have one.
While mowing will be intermittent in
winter, good care should be taken to
keep turf as healthy as possible.A sharp
blade is essential, and regular cleaning of
the mower deck will help avoid spread
of disease and weed seeds throughout
the landscape. Optimal mowing heights
vary by species, but in general, St.
Augustine, bahia and zoysia grasses
should be cut at 3.5-4 inches long. Dwarf
varieties may be cut at 2.5-3 inches.
Mowing high promotes deep root
growth, and it has the added benefit of
creating inhospitable conditions for
weed seed germination.
How can you tell if your lawn has
truly succumbed to cold weather? Plant
a small plug of grass in a container of
good potting mix. Place it in a warm,
sunny location and keep it slightly moist
but not wet or about three weeks. If new
growth appears, your lawn should recov-
er when the warm weather comes again.
If not, you will probably need to replace
at least the brown areas in your lawn
when the weather warms up.
For more information about lawn
care, visit the University of Florida's web-
site at www.yourFloridalawn.ifas.ufl.edu
or visit the Pasco Extension website at
Pasco.ifas.ufl.edu for more gardening in-
formation.

sion director for Pasco County

Trail will extend, but not connect


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Hillsborough County Commission
recently voted to add 4.2 miles to the Upper
Tampa Bay Trail in Lutz and Odessa, but a
2.6-mile hole remains in the plan.
The trail will be added from near the in-
tersection of Gunn Highway and Peterson
Road in Odessa north to where the
Suncoast Trail ends near W Lutz-Lake Fern
Road in Lutz. However, the Tampa trail will
not connect with its southern portion be-
cause of a 2.6-mile gap.
Project manager Bill Hand said there are
four people who own the property near
Peterson who are unwilling to sell their land
to the county. Hand said the overall goal is
to connect the trails, which would create 59
miles of continuous pathways from Tampa
to Citrus County.
Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation
and Conservation Department spokesman
John Brill said the commission told his de-
partment they are still committed to
creating the continuous route.The commis-
sion is unwilling to use eminent domain to
force the landowners to sell their property
at this time and is looking at alternatives for
the trail.


The project is moving forward faster
than expected after the commission voted
to use available county and Southwest
Florida Water Management District money.
A start date is not yet set, but the project is
planned to begin in the spring 2012 and is
scheduled for completion by that October.
The cost of the project is $8 million
with no significant operating cost added
after completion.The job includes creating
two trailhead parking areas, one near the in-
tersection of Van Dyke Road and Gunn and
the other on Lutz-Lake Fern Road halfway
between the street's intersections with the
Suncoast Parkway and Gunn.
The original plan for the Tampa trail ad-
dition was to use Florida Department of
Transportation Department money, but
doing so would delay the completion until
at least 2015.
Lutz resident Mike Rainer, 36, is a dis-
tance runner who uses the SuncoastTrail
every morning in Pasco County. He runs
about 10 miles each morning and is happy
with the thought of having more path-
ways.
"That's great news," Rainer said."We live
in a state were we can go outside and enjoy
the nice weather. It'll be great to have more
trails to go out and enjoy."

FAITH & WORSHIP


Leo will capture your heart
Leo is a nine-and-a-half year old blond Labrador who considers himself the "man" of
the household. Leo loves to sleep lying on his back and "smiles" as if he's having a
wonderful dream. He loves playing tug-of-war, quietly watching deer in the backyard,
and creatively diving underwater in his very own 15,000 gallon play pool. Leo also
understands the Greek word for sleep. He loves walks so much that he carries his
own leash, and if you say the word squirrel, he will start barking and try to find them.
Leo loves to cuddle up on the sofa and give soft kisses. Leo lives with his younger
brother Jett, a black lab, and his proud owners Bruce and Chris Wishart of Lutz..

Preparing for flu season
Influenza, also known as the flu, is a
contagious respiratory illness caused by
influenza viruses. It spreads from person
to person and can cause mild to severe ill-
ness, and in some cases can lead to death.
In the United States, yearly outbreaks of
seasonal flu usually happen during the fall
through early spring. Symptoms can in-
clude fever, cough, sore throat, runny or
stuffy nose, body or muscle aches,
headache, fatigue, vomiting and diarrhea.
"A person with the flu is contagious
one day before symptoms appear and five
to seven days after symptoms appear, or
even longer, depending on a person's im-
mune system," said Rita Sanderson,
director of infection control at Pasco
Regional Medical Center in Dade City.
Influenza is spread by droplets through
coughs, sneezes or common surfaces.
The flu virus varies in severity from sea-
son to season and person to person.
"It's always best to avoid contact with
people who have seasonal or H1N1 flu,"
Sanderson said. "If that's not possible, one


of the best ways to reduce your chance of
contracting the flu is to wash your hands
frequently."
Sanderson also recommends using sani-
tizing wipes to clean surfaces, such as
toys, countertops, telephones and other
objects if someone in your household is ill
with a cold or the flu.
While the ER extra emergency depart-
ment at Pasco Regional has seen few cases
of influenza this season, experts agree this
is a good time to prepare by getting your
annual flu shot. The Center for Disease
Control and Prevention recommends a flu
shot for everyone six months of age and
older.The only exception is for young chil-
dren age six months to 8 years old who
have never received the vaccine. In order
for them to build immunity to the virus,
two doses spaced four weeks apart are
recommended.

CAR SHOW, from page 1
times in their lives, or prompting them to
think about simpler times in the past.
"There's a lot of money and a lot of time
put into these vehicles," he said."And a lot of
pride. It's a whole lifestyle. Some of those
paint jobs are in the $10,000 range."
Organizers of the car show wanted to
stage an event to raise money for the
Heritage Park Foundation, while at the same
time honoring the lateAl and Ida Silver, who
owned A-OK Trophies and were founding
members in the foundation and icons of the
Land O' Lakes community.
One of the reasons they wanted a car
show is that they knew that Al Silver was a
big car buff, said Sandy Graves, president of
the Heritage Park Foundation.
The couple was widely known through-
out the community, said Lonnie Piper, their
daughter, who now runs the trophy shop
with her husband, Bobby Buckle.
Al Silver championed the quest to have a
light put in at Land O' Lakes Boulevard and
Lake Padgett Road because there were so
many accidents, Piper said. He also pushed
to have Christmas lights on electric poles,
even though the family is Jewish, she
added.
The family trophy business began in
their Long Island home 49 years ago. It start-
ed in the basement, spread to the garage
and then spilled into the family room.
"When it got to the dining room, that's
when my mother said,"That's it!" Piper said.
Instead of letting it take over the dining
room, Ida Silver demanded that they open
up a shop.
They had two locations on Long Island
when they decided to move south to
Florida.
They operated at different spots in
Tampa before settling into a pink house on
US 41 in Land O' Lakes.
The house was knocked down by the
widening of US 41, and the highway was re-
named Land O' Lakes Boulevard.The trophy
shop - which sells trophies, plaques, pen
sets, ribbons and other items - operates at
3724 Land O' Lakes Blvd.,in a building con-
structed farther back from the road.
Piper is pleased that the benefit that will
raise money in her parents' memory will
provide a nice time for event-goers while
raising money to help pay for amenities for
the community to enjoy.
The fundraiser's proceeds eventually will
be used to help pay for a Heritage Walk
around the park and an amphitheater,
Graves said.
It costs $15 to register a car for the
event, which can be paid on the day of the
show.
Cars will be lined up on a multipurpose


field, where spectators can check them out
and the contestants can be judged.
Registration is from 9 a.m. to noon.
Twenty trophies and a best of show will be
announced at a 2:30 p.m. ceremony. The
first 50 cars to register will get a free goody
bag.
The event will also feature a DJ playing
music from the 50s, 60s and 70s and will in-
clude various vendors. Some will sell fresh
produce. Others will offer pizza, hot dogs or
barbecue.
Other vendors will sell jewelry, wickless
candles, leather work, soaps, boutique cloth-
ing, beadwork, blankets and photography.A
personal chef and someone from a compa-
ny that does signs on car windows will be
on hand, too.
Vendors are still welcome to participate,
said Pam St. Mary, of Land O' Lakes Saturday
Market, who is organizing the event.
Graves said her organization envisions a
day when people will be able to attend con-
certs and outdoors movies at the park, and
will be able walk around a trail, stopping pe-
riodically to read markers that tell visitors
about the community's history and about
area families.
"We're hoping that people will come out
to see the cars and have a good time," St.
Mary said.

In a tough economy, a company in Lutz has created a new division in a quest to avoid lay-
offs and to position itself for a growing market for its new service. (Photo by B.C. Manion)


COMPANY, from page 1
The service can help companies save
money through more efficient operations
and it can help them maintain a more com-
fortable atmosphere for their employees
and customers, Chuck Kaupp said.
It boils down to making sure the systems
work properly,Theberge said. It's like testing
out a dishwasher, he said.You want to make
sure each cycle performs the way it is sup-
posed to work.
"Most of the time the new buildings are
under warranty for a year," Chuck Kaupp
said. So, it is in everyone's best interest to try
to avoid costly errors in the way systems are
installed or operated,he said.
"You try to get in at the design phase,"
Theberge said.
The idea is to reduce or eliminate the
change orders required in a project, Chuck
Kaupp said."There are a lot of savings that
can found with scientific testing," he said.
Building commissioning is intended to
be an objective analysis of systems to make
sure they are functioning properly, Chuck
Kaupp said.
"Buildings are leaky," Brian Kaupp said.
Conditioned air - whether heated or cooled
- can escape through window openings,
around doors and even building soffits.
"We can tell the owner the leakage rate
and the energy loss," he said.
Technicians can detect leakage by using
a giant fan to suck the air out of a room and
then blow smoke into the building from the
outside to see where it goes.


"Smoke drifts to wherever the leakage is
occurring," Brian Kaupp explained.
Crews also can use thermal energy cam-
eras to detect temperature differences in a
room.
In some cases, both approaches are used,
Brian Kaupp said.
An increasing number of building own-
ers are seeing the value of commissioning,
Chuck Kaupp said. They recognize that a
system that doesn't work properly costs
them money and can reduce comfort, he
said.As a result, more owners are calling for
commissioning services at an earlier stage to
try to prevent potential problems and re-
duce possible costs.
Southern Independent Testing Agency, Inc.,
is located at 138AWhitaker Road in Lutz.
The company's primary market is the
southeast United States, Brian Kaupp said.At
present, they are doing commissioning
work at some schools in Hillsborough and
Osceola counties, at a medical center in
Louisiana and at a hospital in Orlando.
Chuck Kaupp mused that a lot of people
at the stage he is at in his career would be
winding down toward retirement.
Instead, he's enthused about the possibil-
ities of the family-owned company's new
division.
In this tough economic time, Chuck Kaupp
said, "people who have ingenuity and guts are
the people who make things happen.'

Aerospace company gets Pasco County

incentive to relocate


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

BayTech Industries Inc., is construct-
ing an 11,850-square-foot manufacturing
plant in Odessa and will be adding 27
new jobs.
The company is taking advantage of a
Pasco County incentive that will allow it
to defer transportation impact fees up to
$73,000 over a five-year period, according
to a news release from the Pasco
Economic Development Council.
The impact fees will be forgiven if the
company creates the jobs and maintains
them at an average wage of at least 125
percent of the county's average.
The company plans to offer an average
wage of $39,985 for the new jobs, which
represents about 128 percent of the coun-


ty's average wage, according to the PEDC
release.
The company is now located at theTri-
County Industrial Park in Oldsmar, where
it has leased manufacturing space for the
past 22 years.
John Hagen, president and CEO of the
PEDC, said Bay Tech is one of the last
companies in Pasco County taking advan-
tage of the impact fee break.
The county now has a new incentive
program that rewards company more di-
rectly for creating jobs. Employers must
meet program requirements, but when
they do, they receive cash payments over
time from the county, Hagen said.
"We have a lot of people out of work,"
Hagen said. The county recognizes the
problem and is doing everything it can to
create jobs, he said.


County grant supports development of NanoAir


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Pasco County has approved a
$254,000 grant for Dais Analytic Corp. to
help the company develop "NanoAir," a
new generation of energy-efficient, envi-
ronmentally friendly heating, cooling and
refrigeration products.
The grant will enable the Odessa com-
pany to add employees. It also will allow
the company to contract engineering
services to reduce the time it takes to
allow commercial sales of a process it has
developed that can be used to clean
water.That process is made possible by
the company's nanotechnology plastics.
John Hagen, president and CEO of the
Pasco Economic Development Council,
said DAIS has some intellectual property
that has tremendous potential.
The county commission's action vali-


dates the company's efforts and recog-
nizes its continued economic
development efforts and potential.
The county also recognized the com-
pany's achievement in receiving the
coveted, highly competitive Advanced
Research ProjectAgency-Energy (ARPA-E)
grant Dais received earlier this year from
the Department of Energy, according to a
PEDC news release.
The Pasco Economic Development
Council has been working with Dais
Analytic Corporation since April 2009 to
identify the company's business needs
and to help the company grow.
The PEDC has provided help with
training, job placement, consulting servic-
es, local government support, and
financial and investor opportunities.
PEDC expects to continue to work with
Dais to enhance technology and supplier
partnerships.


When dieting, it's OK to cheat ... sometimes

Editor's Note: Eating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we
are heavier than ever before. The challenge is to determine the calorie and fat content
of menu items and make healthy choices. Samantha Taylor offers her tips on how you
can make responsible choices while dining out.


By Samantha Taylor
Pure Health Studios
Okay, I have to admit: I just had a cheat
meal.
It was, by no means, a healthy meal. This
health professional who teaches you how
to order healthy just ate something that
was really fattening, cholesterol-laden and
so far from what I would normally recom-
mend.
Remember, this was my cheat meal, and
having one once in a while lets you have a
sense of freedom from an otherwise rigid
and legalistic diet routine. It is recommend-
ed to let go occasionally and have
something that is not healthiest so that you
do not end up dreading your program and
leaving it.
I went to Olive Garden with my 14-year-
old niece. We chose the Limoncello
Chicken Scaloppini and I must say,it is now
my favorite cheat meal. It was delicious, al-
though rather rich for my taste. It is a
chicken dish with cream sauce - normally
a no-no with cheese-stuffed ravioli (oh my)
and mushrooms. Now, if I had eaten the
whole thing in one sitting, I would have
consumed 1,280 calories (2,100 calories for
the full meal, with one breadstick and a
salad - yikes)!
But, here are the things that we did to
cut the calorie explosion into half for each
of us:
1. We had a salad to start off the meal
and get us fuller faster to stop us from eat-
ing too much of the main entree.
Remember, dressings can be very fattening


The Limoncello Chicken Scaloppini from
Olive Garden.
so request to have the dressing on the side
instead of being drizzled onto the salad. I
messed this one up. I saw on their website
they even have the low-fat version of dress-
ing.
2.We ordered the Chicken Scaloppini to
split between us.
3.We added healthier stuff like asparagus
and mushrooms to thicken up the meal.
4.We only had one breadstick each. Even
the 14-year old saw to it that I stuck to the
standard, a great teaching from her mother. I
honestly can no longer enjoy white bread
these days since I got used to whole wheat.
Now, white bread just tastes too"pasty."
5.We actually took some of it home; it
was so rich, we couldn't even finish half the
order.
So that is my so-called cheat meal. The
funny thing is that all these healthy eating
habits I teach you have been so ingrained
in me that I don't even really
cheat when I cheat! The old
me would have eaten the ,
whole meal plus dessert to
the tune of 3,100 calories.
Phew, thank God I am not
like that anymore.

"When I opened my practice in February of 2002, I wondered how
I would let the residents of Land O' Lakes, Wesley Chapel and
Lutz know I was here. The bulletin at Our Lady of the Rosary
Catholic Church seemed a good start, but we needed another effec-
tive, consistent, quality way to communicate with the communities.
What better way than the neighborhood newspaper, The Laker/Lutz

Rotary Eastside 8 serves generosity


Story and photos by Gary S. Hatrick
Special to The Laker

The Rotary Eastside 8 bagged 775
Christmas meals to be distributed to
those in need Saturday attaining a 72
percent increase over 2009's holiday
joint community service project,
which yielded 450 bags.
Eastside 8 is the name given to
the East Pasco County Rotary Clubs
comprised of the Rotary Club of
Zephyrhills; Rotary Club of
Zephyrhills Daybreak; Rotary Club of
Wesley Chapel; Rotary Club of
Wesley Chapel Sunrise; Rotary Club
of Dade City; Rotary Club of Dade
City Sunrise; Rotary Club of Land O'
Lakes; and Rotary Club of San
Antonio.
A matching grant of $3,700 from


Mike Mira (left) of The Rotary Club of Zel
helps members of other local Rotary club
bags with food items.


Rotary Club International helped to
bring about the increase in dinners
for the east side clubs.
The project was begun last year
and conceived and spearheaded by
past president of the noon Rotary
Club in Zephyrhills, Mike Mira.This
year, he and current president Mike
Waters continued to provide leader-
ship for the project.
The meals consisted of a canned
ham, mashed potatoes, muffin mix,
corn, green beans, gravy and a cake.
"Pretty much a complete holiday
dinner," Mira said.
"Our club did 200 of those bags,"
Mira said."We're taking care ofWest
Elementary, Chester Taylor
Elementary and Stewart Middle
School as well as making a contribu-
tion to the Samaritan Project."
The Samaritan Project is
a cooperative effort be-
tween churches, businesses
and the city of Zephyrhills.
It seeks to meet needs of
Families and individuals in
, the community.
"Daybreak Rotary is
doing 100 bags," Mira con-
S tinued."Their club is taking
care of Woodland
Elementary and the High
phyrhills School."
Is fill "We re going to the
schools because we feel


[having needs is] never the children's
fault.We want these families to have
a nice Christmas dinner," Mira ex-
plained.
Stewart Middle School con-
tributed 600 extra cans of canned
goods from a drive held at the school
which were added to the bags.
Contributions also came from
Zephyrhills community business
partners Wade Thomas, who gave
$1,000 to the noon club, and Tom
Vanater, who provided $300 to the
noon club to fund the bags being
given to the Samaritan Project.
Mira said that the need was even
greater this year.
"We're supposed to be coming
out of the recession and it seems like
people are in worse shape this year,"
he said.
The Eastside 8 clubs had a sum-
mer vacation food project last
summer to help children when there
is no longer a school lunch after they
get out of school. They plan to do
that project again in June.
Rotary is a worldwide organiza-
tion of more than 1.2 million
business, professional, and communi-
ty leaders. Members of Rotary clubs,
known as Rotarians, provide humani-
tarian service, encourage high ethical
standards in all vocations, and help
build goodwill and peace in the
world.

Karim Nohra



joins 400 club


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

After the 51-30 win against Zephyrhills
High Jan. 4, first-year Academy at the Lakes
coach Karim Nohra congratulated his team
as he has following his previous 399 victo-
ries.
The 20-year coach thinks there is noth-
ing special about winning his 400th game in
high school.
"I never even thought about (400),"
Nohra said."All that's saying is I've coached a
long time.As far as I'm concerned it's just a
long time of coaching."
Nohra, who is a professor at the college
of engineering at the University of South
Florida, started as a boys junior varsity coach
from 1987 to 1990 and then became the
girls coach at Tampa Catholic High. He
moved to Cambridge Christian High for two
years and eventually to Wesley Chapel High
the previous two seasons before coming to
the academy.
"We've had success, but that's not just be-
cause of me," Nohra said. "It's the people
around me. I have two assistants and I
haven't gone anywhere without them."
Those assistants are Gene Miranda, who
has been with Nohra since he went to
Tampa Catholic, while Mackenzie Vidonic


Marjorie Rivera came up with 17 points and ei(
the Academy at the Lakes win against Zephyrt


played for him at Cambridge
and joined his staff after grad-
uating in 2006.
"He tries to act like it's no
big deal, but it is," Vidonic
said."He's a great coach and
this shows it."
Nohra guided Wesley
Chapel to consecutive re-
gional finals the last two
seasons, but was not retained
with the team. He did not
have to wait too long before
another group of Wildcats Academy at
was knocking at his door. Wildcats win
"I've known him for 25
years," said academy athletic director Tom
Haslem."I've followed him the whole way.
He's won a ton of games everywhere he
went.When I heard he was having to reap-
ply for his job at Wesley Chapel, which to
me means you're not going to have your
job,we jumped on him."
For a coach who won 48 games in two
years at Wesley Chapel, the change with
coming to the academy was stark. The
Wildcats went 0-15 in the 2009-10 season
and needed a lot of work to get to the 9-1
mark they are at.
"They always fielded a team, but they'd
get trounced," Nohra said."They'd be every-
one's senior night because
you know it would be a W I
came in and said the mentally
has to change. I'm screaming,
yelling at them and they're
like, holy cow this guy is
crazy, but I've changed their
:. perception of what basketball
is all about.They don't know
how to win and you have to
' \ know how to win and pre-
*�L1- ^ pare to win and no one did
S that before."
Nohra also put them on a
weight lifting and running
program to get them faster
and stronger to run his sys-
tem.
"We press and run, that's
my style," Nohra said. "If
you're not in shape you can't
press and run. I tell them all
the time 'I want the ball.' Go
get me the ball and they can't
score and we have more op-
ght steals in portunities to score.That's the
hills. bottom line.Are we good at it

Andrea Mauger had a team-high 20 points
and nine steals in the Wildcats victory.

yet? No, but if I take it away from you half
the time it gives us a better chance to
score."
His players said Nohra says that at least
20 times each practice,"Go get me the ball."
He demands perfection in every drill, asking
players where they should be at any point
and why.
"He's just a great coach," said forward
Andrea Mauger, who played for Nohra at
Wesley Chapel last season."He worked me
hard and is going to make me a better play-
er. I want to play college ball and he's a great
coach to help be do that. He's very intense,
but he's awesome. He definitely knows
what he's talking about, but if you don't do
your job you're going to hear it."
In practice, Nohra also does not miss an


opportunity to remind them where they
were one year ago.
"Lazy gets us 0-15," Nohra yelled during a
recent practice.
Sophomore forward Christina Stark was
a part of that Wildcats team last year that
went winless.
"It's been a whole different program this
year," Stark said."He takes practice as serious
as games."
Junior center/forward Alexis Holler also
suffered through that 0-15 season.
"It's a lot faster paced all the time," Holler
said."We get a lot more done in practice and
it's working.... My goal is to win the first
district championship for girls basketball
this season. I think we have a chance."
Only one team has a district title at the
academy, the girls golf team this school year.
The basketball program reached the district
finals in 2007.
In the milestone win Nohra's press de-
fense forced 25 steals, with Mauger leading
the way with nine and also adding a team-
high 20 points. Guard Marjorie Rivera added
eight steals, 17 points and five rebounds and
five assists.
Many of Nohra's former players,includ-
ing the entire Wesley Chapel team, watched
the 20-year veteran record No. 400. Nohra
acknowledged the achievement, but would
give them all up for a championship run.
"If anybody wants to trade, I'll trade my
400 for seven in February," Nohra said.
"That's really what I'd like to do.... Seven
wins in February means we just won the
state title."
The academy had a game against
Lakeside Christian Jan. 10, but results were
not available by press time.The squad next
plays at the Academy of the Holy Names Jan.

Leaving one Wildcats team for another


Link between coaches
Castelamare and Nohra

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

It seems John Castelamare and Karim
Nohra really like Wildcats.
Both coached at Wesley Chapel High for
the 2009-10 school year, Castelamare for
football and Nohra for girls basketball.The
similarities do not stop there as the two
both took over the same position at
Academy at the Lakes this season.
Nohra, a professor at the University of
South Florida, led the Wesley Chapel girls
basketball program the last two years, guid-
ing the squad to back-to-back regional finals
appearances. However, Carin Nettles be-


came the school's principal for the 2009-10
school year and put a new emphasis on
coaches being teachers at Wesley Chapel.
He was not retained.
Castelamare, a physical education
teacher, started the Wesley Chapel football
program when the school opened in 1999.
He was forced to retire before last year,
which was his fifth in the deferred retire-
ment option program. The academy was
waiting with open arms to welcome the
two veteran coaches.
"What we're trying to do is get the best
coaches we can find," said academy athletic
director Tom Haslem."We have coach John
Castelamare for football, coach Nohra for
basketball.We're a small school and those
guys have a lot to offer to our programs.As
anAD it's a no brainer for me.'
Nohra and Castelamare both express


thanks to Haslem for giving them an oppor-
tunity to coach at the academy.
Castelamare coached for 38 years in
Pasco County public schools, working with
Ridgewood High's program before Wesley
Chapel. During that time he compiled a 108-
126 record, 63-50 at Wesley Chapel
including two 10-0 regular seasons and
three district championships.
Coming to the academy Castelamare had
to get used to coaching six-man football.
"The rules are very different and it took
some time to get them all down, but in the
end it's still football" Castelamare said."A lot
of the players didn't really know anything
about football and we had to teach them
drills I'd used at Wesley Chapel for years."
The academy went 6-5 and reached the
playoffs in Castelamare's first season, but he

Senior-heavy Bulls shooting for first district crown


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

TheWiregrass Ranch High boys basket-
ball program narrowly missed its first
playoff appearance last year and the squad's
seven seniors are using that disappointment
as motivation this season.
The Bulls (8-5) lost in the Class 4A,
District 8 semifinals 57-52 to Nature
CoastTech last year.A win in that contest
would have sent them to their first post-
season.

the highest vertical leap on the squad.

WILDCATS, from page 20
has more than just winning on his to-do
list.
"The goal is to get the program to 11-
man football," Castelamare said."We'd need
at least 25 good football players to do that.
Just 25 bodies isn't enough.We need foot-
ball players. I think the excitement in
football is up here at the academy and I
hope our numbers will be up next season."
There were about 15 players on the
academy football roster last year. The pro-
gram moved up to 11-man football for one
season in 2007 and went 1-9.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800


"We want to get what we missed out on
last year," said senior Tanner Carey."We want
to get the first district title for our program."
The 2009-10 Bulls went 21-6, but the
team lost five seniors including 6-foot-9
center Eric Williams who scored more
than 1,000 points and pulled down more
than 700 rebounds while at Wiregrass
Ranch.
"I think this team is better than that
team," said Bulls coach Jeremy Calzone."We
have more depth this year.We go 10 deep.
We're going to be just fine with these play-
ers."
The team goes 10 deep on the depth
chart, but the flexibility in the lineup goes
farther than that. Calzone stresses that none
of the players have set positions.
"We don't really characterize them,"
Calzone said."Basically we have four guards
and one center.Anyone can go inside and
play the post or step out and play on the
perimeter. For example, if we feel like
Tanner Carey can get things going in the
post we'll put him there, but he's also our
best three-point shooter."
Senior Josiah Jones is the epitome of that

Nohra did not have to worry about new
rules when he came to the academy, but he
did have to work on many of the basics
with his new squad as Castelamare did.
"The first thing I saw is they needed di-
rections as far as skill work," Nohra said."I
immediately made them start doing some
weight lifting and running, and that scared
quite a few of the girls away.They've never
been asked to do a lot other than let's roll
out the balls, put on the uniform and go
play. Now I'm demanding more of their time
and effort. It's a really big culture change."
One player who wasn't scared off is
sophomore Andrea Mauger, who played for
Nohra atWesley Chapel last year and trans-
ferred to the academy. She said she enjoys
playing with Nohra's high-tempo style.
"He runs the same system no matter
where he's at and I like what he runs,"
Mauger said."It stops a lot of people and
the pressure is just so high that it confuses
people. You have a job and if you do it
right everything is fine, but if one person
doesn't it just falls apart. Coach breaks
down everyone's job and gets you to un-
derstand what to do and why you have to
do it that way."
Last year the academy girls basketball
program went 0-15, but have turned that
around fast for 9-1 start including Nohra's
400th win as a high school coach.
"We have coaches who are really good at
turning programs around and both teams
are flat out working harder than they did
last year" Haslem said."They have everyone
at the school talking about athletics here
and I'm hoping for many more years with
them leading the programs."

flexibility. Not only can

dunks, he can also step
back and drain nothing-
but-net jump shots.
"It's kind of just auto-
matic," Jones said about
the shift from inside to
outside play. "We're all
used to it. It lets us attack
our opponent's weak-
ness."
The team's improved

seasons is being noticed

"I came from a
school in Wisconsin,
where I was as a freshman, that has been
there for 60 years," Jones said. "They
packed that gym every night. Coming here
as a sophomore there weren't so many
people coming out, but then more and
more people started to show up.You can
feel that pride."
Pride is the key word to Calzone.
"It has a lot to do with pride," Calzone
said of the improvement in all Wiregrass


Ranch athletics."The kids are actually proud
to be a part of this school. Before it was I'm

Adult football comes to Hillsborough


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com


Hillsborough County has offered adult
softball for at least 10 years, but until now
there was nothing for weekend warriors
looking to live out their football dreams.
The Hillsborough County Parks,
Recreation and Conservation Department is
launching an adult 4-on-4 flag football
league with games starting Wednesday,Jan.
19 and continuing for 10 weeks.
"We've had a lot of calls from people in-
terested in adult football," said Charlie Jones,
adult sports coordinator for the depart-
ment.
The season will have one game each
week, followed by playoffs for the top-two
teams from each of the five league sites.
One of those locations is the Keystone
Recreation Center, 17928 Gunn Highway in
Odessa.
"We have the space and there is a de-
mand for adult programs at the Keystone
facility," said department spokesman John
Brill.
Jones said the number of teams will be
based on how many people reg-
ister. He said if things go well
they may offer the league multi- Hillsl
pie times during the year. Where
"We thought winter would be Seaso
the best time to start because it
isn't hot yet and people are look- Cost:
ing for ways to exercise after Signul
making NewYear's resolutions,"


Jones said."Football is so popular, so it was
the natural sport to pick."
The games will be at either 6:45,7:30 or
8:15 p.m. eachWednesday.Teams will have
eight players who must be at least 18 years
old to participate. The cost is $250 per
squad.
"We also are taking individuals," Jones
said."They can sign up and we'll put them
on a team."
Jones said teams can either pay the fee,
or as many have with the county's softball
program, get sponsorships from businesses.
All participants receive a T-shirt, and the top
two squads from each location also receive
awards.
Jones said there is a good chance the
county will offer more adult programs in
the future, including a wiffle ball league.
Those interested in the football program or
any other adult league with the department
can sign up by calling Jones at (813) 744-
5595 ext. 225.
"We're always trying to offer more pro-
grams for our community,"Jones said."We
welcome any ideas or insight on how to
give the best services to our citizens."

District fires two Land 0' Lakes coaches


Football coach Matt Kitchie
and cheerleading coach
Celisa Cook remain teachers

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Land O' Lakes High cheerleading coach
Celisa Cook and football coach Matt Kitchie
will not return to lead their sports next sea-
son.
Gators principal Ric Mellin confirmed
the two will not have their positions re-
newed, but will both remain as teachers.
Kitchie is a physical education teacher,
while Cook is the exceptional student edu-
cation department head. Neither coaches
any other sport at Land O' Lakes.
Mellin said both teachers received a let-
ter from Pasco County Superintendent
Heather Fiorentino Dec. 22, the day before
schools let out for the winter break.
"There was a decision made that went
against what's outlined in our code of con-
duct," Mellin said.
Fiorentino said the discipline was under
her direction.
Both coaches, as well as defensive coor-
dinator Jason Hatcher, were indefinitely
suspended after an off the field incident in-
volving an unnamed student in November.
The three coaches missed the Gators'last
regular season game against Hudson High, a
42-10 win, and their first-round playoff loss
to eventual state champion Jefferson High.

before last season. Kitchie and cheerleading coach Celisa Cook will not return to those
positions next year. (Files photo)


Also absent from both those last two con-
tests was senior quarterback Stephen
Weatherford. Offensive line coach Pat
Corcoran took over the football team and
junior Ryan Bird was the quarterback to end
the year.
Hatcher was not a teacher, but a perma-
nent substitute at Land O' Lakes. He was told
he would no longer be working at the
school in December.
Mellin said the football position is being
advertised this week, but is not tied to any
teaching opening. He hopes to have a new
coach in place before the start of spring
practice, which begins in May.
"We want to give the new coach time to
select the assistants," Mellin said."Continuity


is very important for high school athletics,
but I'm sure the next coach will want to
have some say in the staff."
As for cheerleading, the sport is very
much in season. The Gators competed in
the regional tournament Jan. 8, but results
were not available by press time. Junior var-
sity coach Andrea Burkhart has been the
acting varsity coach since Cook's suspen-
sion.
"I commend both Pat and Andrea for
stepping in under difficult circumstances,"
Mellin said."I know it wasn't easy for them."
Mellin said the cheerleading position,
which is also not tied to a teaching job, will
be advertised after the season.
Cook did not comment on the deci-


sion, but Mellin said she has been the
cheerleading coach for the last several
years except for the 2009-10 season when
she resigned for personal reasons. She
reapplied after the position opened again
the next year.
Kitchie became the football coach for
the 2009-10 school year, coming from Saint
Stephen's Episcopal High. He took over for
John Benedetto, who coached the Gators
for 32 seasons. Land O' Lakes went 17-3
under Kitchie, including two playoff ap-
pearances as the Class 3A, District 7
runner-up.
"I loved coaching this program, but at
least the kids have closure now instead of
wondering what's happening," Kitchie said.
"I'm not worried about me though. I'll get
another coaching position. I've still got my
teaching job here at Land O' Lakes and I'll
do the best job I can."
Mellin said he does not regret bringing
Kitchie to the school.
"I selected him as coach and I'm proud
of his accomplishments here and still con-
sider him a friend," Mellin said."I wish him
the best of luck. It just didn't work out
here."
There are currently three high school
head football positions opened in Pasco and
north Hillsborough counties,including the
head job at Mitchell, River Ridge and
Gaither. Kitchie has applied for the Gaither
position, which was vacated when nine-year
Cowboys coach Mark Kantor stepped down
in December.

Will the Internet kill your free community paper?
Did instant potatoes kill potatoes?


New technologies change many things. But
not everything. You may tweet, blog, surf,
shop, or search online but you continue to
read your free community paper. You just
proved it.
Readership of free community papers is now
higher than paid daily papers and continues
to grow. Rather than being replaced by
"instant" media, your local free community
paper has become an important part of our
neighborhood.
The reason, which sometimes is not heard


because of all the noise about the Internet, is
pretty obvious: your free community paper
does what the Internet doesn't. We promote
connections at a local level. Free papers join
readers and advertisers in ways digital media
doesn't.
In fact, the local content and power of your
free paper makes advertising even more
effective. We are the number one medium for
driving purchases. That's important in every
product category.
Including potatoes.
