'Co-sponsorship' resolves


County park fees dispute


By Zack Peterson
zpeterson@cnewspubs.com

For almost two years now, Edwina
Kraemer and the members of the non
profit GFWC Lutz-Land 0' Lakes
Woman's Club have been meeting at
the Land O'Lakes Community Center '8
in Pasco County to escape fees im-
posed by Hillsborough County.
Their old home, the Lutz
Community Center, had become too
expensive to frequent.
Other nonprofit organizations and
hobby groups that use local recre-
ational centers, such as gardeners,
quilters and senior citizens, have been
unable to meet at all.
For almost two years now, many
nonprofit organizations have been
faced with an agonizing choice: Pay
the $20 hourly fee required to inhabit HillsL
the building, or leave, left,
Many had to settle for the latter. Recr
"We're nonprofit organizations meet
and we're giving back to the commu- Edwi
nity," said Kraemer, president of the Lake
Lutz-Land 0' Lakes Woman's Club. Thor
"Now, we're being charged to use a the is
center, as well as the acres of land recre
outside it, that the Lutz people
bought, built and then gave to
Hillsborough County."
But after a community meeting at the
Lutz Community Center on June 14,"a level
of comfort was achieved," according to
Hillsborough County Commissioner Victor
Crist.
The meeting, between various groups,
Crist and Mark Thornton, director of the
County's Parks and Recreation Department,
resulted in the county agreeing to co-spon-
sor some groups.
According to Craig Jewseak, the head of
external communications for Crist, co-spon-
sorship is akin to "a 100 percent discount

from the county."
Essentially, the county offers a fee waiver
if the nonprofit organizations acknowledge
the county's involvement during their meet-
ings, fundraisers or any other affiliated
events that make use of parks and recre-
ational facilities.
"In return for the maintenance of build-
ing utilities, we would like to partner with
you,"Thornton told organizations present at
the meeting. "We would just need some
recognition."
Crist lc'. nibc, I it as "subtle advertising."

BayCare Outpatient Imaging in Lutz

Theoretically, the recession has been
over for quite some time.
The people who keep track of such
things for the federal government said the
recession officially ended in June 2009.
But it sure doesn't feel that way for mil-
lions of Americans who remain out of work
- including thousands of government work-
ers in schools, cities, counties and state


offices who recently got their pink slips, or
whose jobs are on the chopping block.
Foreclosures glut the housing market -
undermining values and stalling a recovery.
And, rising costs of gasoline and gro-
ceries are crimping other kinds of
consumer spending.
All in all, the picture seems pretty bleak.
But there are bright spots - some signs
of life - on the horizon in the community.

Odessa-based company's products click with consumers


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

What do autoharps, solar-powered water
heaters, pet caskets and gate openers have
in common?
At least one thing: They are among the
products sold by an Odessa-based online re-
tailer calledWeb Direct Brands Inc.
The company specializes in consumer
goods that aren't typically found in a local
store.
They're the kind of things that people
tend to search for on the Internet, which
turns out to be exactly the audience this
company is after.That's because beyond sell-
ing a vast array of items, the company has a
dedicated website for each of its product
lines.
For instance, say you want to buy an auto
harp, but you're not really sure where to get
it or what kind to buy. Chances are you'll
turn to Google and find an ad from
AutoHarpStore.com at the top of the list.
"We've been the largest autoharp dealer
for probably about four or five years run-
ning now," said Matt Raab, vice president of
Web Direct, located at 13100 SR 54, in a
stand-alone building set back from the high-
way.
"We probably sell about 15 percent of all
autoharps sold worldwide," added Anthony
Gaeto, the company's president and
founder.
In a nutshell, this company combines the
power of the Internet and deep product
knowledge to sell its goods.
"The key is to become an expert on
what you are selling," Gaeto said, and then to
share that information with customers."We
focus on bringing quality content to some-
body who is interested in buying one of the
products that we sell," he said.
"If your website is focused enough and it
becomes an authority on that very focused

Matt Raab, the company's vice president. (Photo by B.C. Manion)


item, you can have a very successful web-
site," Gaeto said.
The website has an online selector, Raab
said. This allows customers with specific
needs to select the features of the autoharp
they desire. For instance, perhaps a musician
wants a particular type of wood because of
its specific resonance and maybe they want
a different number of chords because of the
kind of music they play.
The company has numerous websites.They in-
clude: DIYGateopeners.com, DIYPoolFence.com,
DIYHurricaneSupply.com,
DIYReverseOsmosis.com, DIYPatioDeck.com,
TomatoMilling.com,ArtisticGateConcepts.com,
WaterTechSolar.com, PetsinRemembrance.com,
YouthChairStore.com and others.
The company operates in an open ware-
house-type building, where employees work
at desks in small open areas, interspersed
with inventory for online customers.
Stepping through the warehouse offers a
peak of the company's niche markets.
There's fitness equipment, child-sized


chairs, pet caskets, reverse osmosis water fil-
tration systems, solar water heaters,
computer server racks, meat slicers and
youth chairs, which Raab described as a
step between a high-chair and a regular
chair.
And that's just a smattering of what's
available today.
"We always have in the pipeline any-
where from 50 to 100 ideas," said Gaeto,
whose company has grown every year since
it began operations in 2002.
It hasn't always been smooth sailing,
Gaeto said.
"There was a big blip there, when the
economy went bad," he said. However, the
company has grown every year and some
years by quite a bit.
"In normal times, we're growing 30 per-
cent," Gaeto said. And, the economy is
improving, he said. "We're starting to see
good growth."
He expects the company to do $7 mil-
lion in sales this year.


The company got a boost recently when
it was awarded a $250,000 loan through the
state's Economic Gardening Loan adminis-
tered by The Black Business Investment
Fund for the state of Florida.
The loan was granted to increase the
company's manufacturing capacity and ex-
pand its marketing and IT departments.
Gaeto said the loan was at least partially
responsible for the company's hiring of 10
employees, bringing its total work force to
35.Without the loan, Gaeto said, he probably
would have expanded his work force by just
three employees.
"The problem we have in this business is
that we have all of these great ideas, we're
just not able to act on them.The loan was
purely giving us the opportunity to act on
more product lines that we had ideas
about," he said.
"It's a good loan program. It certainly
gets you moving. The first year is the only
year that you're interest only. Then you're
paying back principal over a three-year peri-
od.You have to know that you can get that
money.
"It's a pretty aggressive payback. If you're
not able to generate the additional business,
it could be crippling," Gaeto added.
The company has an optimistic outlook.
Gaeto is predicting "significant, steady
growth."
It is so confident about its potential that
it has purchased the property next door in
December."We knew that we were growing
fast enough that we were going to outgrow
this building," Gaeto said.
On its website, company officials explain
Web Direct Brands' philosophy:"Our stores
are built around the premise that a well-in-
formed buyer makes the best customer for a
mutually beneficial relationship."
"We feel that we're there to give the in-
formation and let the customer make an
informed decision," Raab said.

project is not fully funded.

Improvements also are being made
on 1-75, with 32.6 miles of highway being


widened between SR 56 and the Hernando
County line.

agement firm, already has acquired a 72-acre
site SR 54 and Sunlake Boulevard, across
from Rasmussen College. It plans to open a
corporate campus there that could employ
up to 1,600 workers, although that may not

Kids learn how to
ride and care at
WCM Horse Camp

By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

When the kids arrive atWCM Horse
Camp in Odessa, they troop over to
check out a board to find out what horse
they'll be riding that day, then the group
heads out to raise the flag as part of the
daily routine.
Then it's back to the barn, where they
get an idea of what it takes to take care
of a horse, such as brushing the animals
and cleaning their feet.
Some of the time, they're out with a
camp counselor, learning how to handle
a horse.
Other times, they're doing arts and


Here's a look at some horses hanging out at West Coast Morgans, a 30-acre horse farm in Odessa.


crafts or playing games near the barn.
Other parts of the regular schedule
include lunch, a time for snacks and
water activities at the end of the day.
"When they go home, they're happy,
wet and tired," said Diane Tanguay, who
runs the arts and crafts sessions during
the summer camp.
The horse camp hosted by West
Coast Morgans, a house barn at 17126
Boy Scout Road, offers campers a close-
up look at the life of a horse, said trainer
Valarie Siemer.
"So many kids, especially the young
girls, are so horse crazy. I think this helps
them focus a little more on the reality of
it," she said. "They learn good stuff here.
They learn the reality of taking care of
the horses."
They also learn that horses offer more
than just a chance to have fun while rid-
ing on them, said 16-year-old Taylor
Ekovich, a counselor who began riding
at the barn when she
was 7.
"It gives them some-
thing to be close to -
away from the kids and
the drama of students, es-
pecially middle school."
Alix Fiorino, the
horse camp's director,
said she grew up riding
horses in Ft. Lauderdale.
"I went to camp my
whole life, every sum-
mer. I met my best
friends through the
camps I went to."
I learned that this
was more of a lifestyle,
not just a sport," said
Fiorino, who is attending
an equestrian school in
Missouri and majoring


in equestrian administration.
Horses are excellent teachers, Fiorino
said.They require care but offer valuable
lessons, she said. "You have to learn that
old saying,"If you fall off, you have to get
back on."
Much of horseback riding is mind
over matter, Fiorino said.
"It's not rocket science," she added.
"Everything that's holding you back is
your own emotions and your own men-
tal state."
Lisa Skidd was at the barn last week,
dropping off her three daughters, 11-
year-old Shelby, 8-year-old Jackie and
5-year-old Kailey
It's the third year the girls have gone
to the camp.
"The kids absolutely love it," said
Skidd, who lives in Twin BranchAcres.
"They learn all about horses, how to
saddle, how to care for them, how to
groom.They learn horsemanship. They
learn safety. They learn the basics," said
Skidd, who went to horse camps when
she was a girl.
She thinks the camps teach children
how to appreciate animals and offer a
fun way for them to learn about compas-
sion and responsibility.
Faith Graves of New Port Richey, was
at the camp for the first time last week.
But she's no stranger to horses, she's
been riding for seven years - since she
was 4.
"I love it," she said."I love being out-
doors and hanging out with horses. It's
relaxing."
At the camp, she said, "you learn to
position the reins properly."
The campers come from all,Tanguay
said, including Land 0' Lakes, South
Tampa, Odessa, Lutz, Westchase and

other communities.
The campers learn about a horse's body
parts and about riding techniques.
Instruction varies from camper to camper
based on experience level,Tanguay said.
"We start our first day of camp evaluating
everyone," once they know the rider's level,
they go from there.
Some of the campers have never been
on a horse. Some are a bit apprehensive.
They work with the children to help
them feel comfortable,Tanguay said.
"You'd be surprised how quickly we can
get them up on a horse," she said.
Safety is emphasized at the camp.
Each camper must wear a helmet and
shoes or boots with heels.
The helmet protects their head, of
course.The heel keeps their feet from slip-
ping all of the way through a stirrup, when
they point their feet down.
"Each horse is accompanied by a coun-
selor. We do not turn children loose with
horses," Tanguay said.
They also learn barn safety rules. For in-
stance, campers shouldn't stick their fingers
into a horse's stall.The horse might confuse


a finger for a carrot and bite it.
Also, when a horse is coming through
the barn, they yell,"Hug the wall," so people
can clear the way for the horse, which in
most cases will weigh about 1,000 pounds.
The 30-acre facility, owned by Anne and
Glenn Winograd, has a 30-stall barn and 27
horses. In addition to its summer camps, it
offers lessons for people of all ages. It also
boards and leases horses.
Each week of the summer camp has a
different theme.
Parents drop their children off between
9-9:30 in the morning and pick them up be-
tween 4-4:30 in the afternoon.
The cost for the week-long camp is
$300, but the farm is willing to make
arrangements for half-days or fewer days.
"We are very flexible,"Tanguay said.
She thinks dropping by the camp is the
best way for parents to find out if the camp

Regional transportation

authority feels Scott's veto pen


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Even though only $950,000 of the
$615 million vetoed from Florida's
budget by Gov. Rick Scott was from
Tampa BayArea Regional Transportation
Authority (TBARTA), it came as a shock
to the organization.
The portion of the budget cuts
could be crushing for the regional
board, which has had an annual budget
of $1.75 million since it was estab-
lished in 2007 by the state Legislature.
It was created to plan transportation
strategies for the seven counties that
make up the Tampa Bay area, which in-
cludes both Pasco and Hillsborough.
"The transportation needs of the re-
gion have not changed; traffic
congestion has not diminished,"TBARTA
officials said in a statement responding
to the cut."We need a vision for the long
term and solutions for the short term."
TBARTA spokeswoman Amy Ellis
added,"Our funding and revenue vary
year to year and some are multi-year
contracts. Other dollars may make up
the shortfall. It's too early to know.We
are still reviewing and will budget ac-
cordingly."


TBARTA has yet to release its own
budget, but one would have to be in
place by the start of the new fiscal year
on Oct. 1.
Ellis said TBARTA members are
using information gathered during six
recent telephone town hall meetings,
which drew involvement from 60,000
people.
Pasco Commission Chairwoman
Ann Hildebrand is her county's repre-
sentative onTBARTA's board and was
disappointed with the cut.
"I think we've done a lot with the
small budget we had," Hildebrand said.
"We'll continue to do everything we
can with the money we have for the
growing region."
TBARTA estimations show traffic
congestion is expected to double by
2035 in its region and triple by 2050.
TBARTA currently has a staff of 13.
Of those positions, three are vacant. It
oversee the planning and operations of
the BayArea Commuter Services, a ride
matching program including car and
van-pooling alternatives in TBARTA's
five northern counties.

budget cut, visit www.tbarta.com.


Pasco commissioners approve panhandling ban


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Pasco Commission approved a prelimi-
nary law on June 7 to ban all panhandling
within the county on all days except Sundays.
The ordinance bans any form of panhandling
in unincorporated Pasco on all county and state
roadways, which includes selling anything or
asking for donations.The one-day exception was
mainly given because of the large volume of
newspapers that are sold on Sundays.
Representatives from The Tampa Tribune and
the St. Petersburg Times argued the outright ban
would have cost nearly 200 people their part-
time jobs selling newspapers while walking on
the medians of the roadways.
Those representatives showed the commis-
sioners the traffic volume is significantly lower
on Sunday, as much as 55 percent of the typical
levels during the week. The ban has been
framed as a safety issue, so the statistics helped
push the board toward the concession.
Assistant county attorney KristiWooden said
the numbers presented are accurate and gave
the commissioners assurances that groups
would be unlikely to challenge the legality of
passing the ban with the Sunday exception
based on safety.Wooden added accidents involv-
ing pedestrians are 31 percent less likely on a
Sunday.
"We heard from people who sell the papers
on Sunday that they depend on the money to
keep their homes," said Pasco Commission
ChairwomanAnn Hildebrand.
Hildebrand said she regularly buys a Sunday
newspaper from roadside vendors.
The ordinance states anyone selling anything
on the roadside must be at least 18 years old
and is required to have photo identification
while wearing reflective vests. Nonprofit groups
would be required to register with the state be-
fore soliciting donations.
While the daily newspapers were satisfied
with the concession, those most in need are
devastated.


Wendi Burruss was at the commissioners
meeting when the ordinance was passed and
said she supplements her income by selling bot-
tled water on the roadside. She said the extra
money she earns has allowed her to stay off the
street.
"Sir, ma'am,in God's name, give (the home-
less) some way to earn a living, or they will
starve," Burruss said.
The ban does not apply to Pasco's five cities,
Zephyrhills, Dade City, SanAntonio, Port Richey
and New Port Richey.Those city councils have
the authority to pass their own panhandling pol-
icy.
New Port Richey already banned panhan-
dling in May.That ordinance states it is,"unlawful
for panhandlers to express implied threats of
physical injury or property damage, attempt to
maintain extended contact after receiving a neg-
ative response or impede a person's movement."
Zephyrhills City Manager Jim Drumm and
Dade City City Manger William Poe Jr. said they
expect to discuss a possible ban later this sum-
mer.
To the south, Hillsborough County and the
city of St. Petersburg have passed outright bans
without the Sunday exception.The Tampa City
Council narrowly voted against a similar ban
and is planning several workshops to further
discuss the issue. It is scheduled to have more
discussion about passing a ban at its Aug. 4
meeting.
The Florida Legislature also considered an
outright ban of some types of panhandling
throughout the state, but a decision was not
reached before the recent recess.
The issue has taken center stage as the down
economy forces more people out of their
homes on onto the streets. Hildebrand admitted
the ban has a lot to do with the image panhan-
dling creates for the county.
Commissioners have scheduled a public
hearing for July 26 at the West Pasco
Government Center, 7530 Little Road in New
Port Richey, before the final adoption of the or-
dinance.

WHAT'S IN A NAME


Samuel Pasco lends name to county


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

When Samuel Pasco first set foot
in Florida in 1859, he probably did
not think there would someday be a
county named after him with nearly
half a million residents.
Pasco was born in 1834 in
London and lived until age 83 be-
fore his death in 1917. He
immigrated to Charlestown, Mass.
in 1846, where he graduated from
Harvard College.
Pasco moved to Monticello in
Florida's panhandle in 1859,
where he was the principal of
WaukeenahlAcademy, nowAucilla
Christian Academy, until 1861.
He left the high school to join
the Confederate Army after the Civil
War started as a private in the Third
Florida Volunteers. He was wounded and
taken prisoner at Mississippi Ridge in
1863 and remained imprisoned until
March 1865, when he was paroled as a
sergeant.
Pasco returned as the principal of
Waukeenah in 1865 for one year before
leaving to becoming the clerk of the circuit
court of Jefferson County from 1866-68.
Pasco worked as a lawyer and eventually
became a judge in Monticello until 1880,
when he became a member of the
Democratic National Committee. He also
was president of the Florida constitutional
convention in 1885 and a member of the
state house from 1886-87, serving as speaker
his final year. He was elected as a U.S. sena-
tor in 1887.
At that time, Hernando County was split
into three separate counties because of
growing population.The center portion re-
mained Hernando, the northern section
became Citrus County and the southern
third was shortly called Banner County,
which was unpopular with others in the
state Legislature.
The name Pasco County was first pro-
posed by Richard Bankston, a member of
the legislature at the time. Bankston record-
ed some of the discussion about the
fledgling county in a letter:
-From 1881 to 1887, Hernando county,
especially the southern end, rapidly filled
with a high type of settlers, many of whom I
knew and remember pleasantly.We all were
weary of traveling the sand trails of


Pasco County was named after former U.S. Sen.
Samuel Pasco, who, it seems, never even stepped
in the county. (Photo courtesy of Jeff Miller)


Brooksville, the county seat, to attend court,
or transact other business of varied nature,
and when we would meet, as neighbors
will, at our community post office and
stores, comment was loud and complaint
vigorous and prolonged against the hard-
ships of the trip. Such conditions aroused
sentiment in favor of county division as a
means of relief.
Enthusiasm was spontaneous and hope
ran high. The result was a mass meeting
which was attended by nearly all our male
citizens, and was very representative, there
being present people from every precinct
in the southern end of the county.
Unanimous sentiment was for division -
the proper steps to take to attain that result
was the issue for discussion.After delibera-
tion, it was resolved that a committee of
two be named to go toTallahassee in the
interest of the desired end, the Hon. J.A.
Hendley and myself being the committee
selected. Mr. James Grady moved that we
be instructed to call our county "Banner"
county.
While working on it we interviewed
right and left, trying to work up sentiment
in our favor, but when we would tell them
we wanted our county to be called
"Banner County," from the immediate


change of countenance we could see
that we had thrown a damper upon
their favorable interest.
As we learned that nearly every
member thought he came from the
Banner County, we began to seek
for an unobjectionable name. At
that time the body was in joint
session, voting for United States
senator, and very enthusiastically
elected Judge Samuel Pasco of
Monticello to the position. It
struck me as an inspiration to
call our county "Pasco." I immedi-
ately went to the committee
room, where I had a desk and
(changed our bill making the
name Pasco instead of
Banner.
We gave the finished bill
to Senator A. S. Mann, who at
once introduced it in the
Senate, and it passed unani-
mously. It was expedited
to the House and sponsored
foot by F Saxon, where it passed
unanimously. The governor


was favorable and signed it. Having accom-
plished all we purposed, we returned home,
able to report the complete success of our
mission.-
Edward Perry, Florida's governor at the
time, signed the bill to create Pasco and
Citrus out of portions of Hernando, making
sure Samuel Pasco's name would live on in
state history. Interestingly enough, there is
no documentation of Pasco spending any
time in the county.
Today, Pasco County is 745 square miles
and has 471,709 people, according to U.S.
Censure statistics. For additional information
on Samuel Pasco and the county, visit
www.fivay.org.

-This summer, we will take you on a
tour of how historic places earned their
names. Information is provided by inter-
views with Pasco County historian Jeff
Miller of Fivay.org and the West Pasco
Historical Society. If you know the history
of an interesting place, call us at (813)

Schrader seeks fourth - and 'final'


- term


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com
Pasco County Commissioner Ted
Schrader is seeking his fourth term on the
board after filing the necessary paperwork
earlier this month.
Schrader, 55, said it will be the last time
he runs for the post. He filed to end ru-
mors he would seek another political
office, such as the Florida House seat cur-
rently occupied by Rep.WillWeatherford,
R-Wesley Chapel, which will be open in
two years.
"I wanted to dispel any notion that I'd be
running for another political office,"
Schrader said. "It's not my desire to go to
Tallahassee. My focus is to continue to pro-
vide quality representation to the citizens of
Pasco County."
Schrader is the representative for Pasco
District 1, which represents all or portions
of Zephyrhills, Dade City,Wesley Chapel, San
Antonio, Saint Leo and Lacoochee. It is the


biggest of the coun-
ty's five districts in
terms of landmass.
Fellow county
Commissioner Pat
Mulieri, who repre-
sents most of central
Pasco and portions of
Ted Schrader Wesley Chapel within
District 2, is pleased
Schrader decided to run again.
"Ted is a thoughtful hard working com-
missioner," Mulieri said."I believe we have a
good board now with him on it."
Mulieri has been on the commission the
last 17 years, which includes all three of
Schrader's terms.
Schrader, a Republican, is also a citrus
grower and Realtor. He first ran for the
District 1 spot in 2000. No one ran against
him when he was elected. He defeated San
Antonio developer John Nicolette in the
2008 Republican primary en route to earn-
ing his third term.


Pasco County's five districts. (File image)

His family has a long history in Pasco's
politics as his grandfather,Arthur Schrader,
served as the District 1 commissioner for
more than 20 years.
Schrader said he won't serve as long as
his grandfather, promising that his fourth


term would be his last.
"I've always thought that politicians
shouldn't have everlasting careers," Schrader
said."If I win, that will be enough for me.
There are other things I want to do and it
will give someone else the opportunity."

Caladiums brighten dark corners


By B.J. Jarvis
Pasco Extension Horticulture Agent and Director

So often, gardeners defy nature by
planting, tending and coaxing sun-loving
plants in shady spots, like turf under a tree.
Why not give in to the conditions and
plant a perennial that will thrive in a shady
nook?
The University of Florida's Gulf Coast
Research Center in Hillsborough County is
hybridizing an amazing diversity of caladi-
ums. Dr. Zhanao Deng, an associate
professor in the Environmental
Horticulture Department, has developed a
wide array of pinks, red, white and shade
of green caladiums, plus unique leaf
shapes and sizes.
Another bonus is caladiums are easy to
grow and are also versatile.You can grow
them in the ground or in planters or even
in a hanging basket. Grown not for their
flower but for the large colorful heart-
shaped leaves, there's sure to be one that
fits in most any garden scheme.The fancy
types are taller plants, growing up to 2-
inches tall, while the dwarfs are a bit
shorter, but get their name because indi-
vidual leaves are smaller. There is also a
strap-type, which has a longer, narrower
heart-shape to the leaf.
Fancy cultivars, like Florida white ruf-
fles (long thin ruffled leaves that have
some sun tolerance), cranberry star (large
white leaves with dark red speckles) and
Florida whitewater (strap-like leaves with
wavy leaf margins showing decent sun tol-
erance), are three unique varieties to look
for. Some of the newer fancy caladiums
can be found at the annual Caladium
Festival in Lake Placid, in late August each
year.
Although native to the Amazon River
basin, caladiums appreciate our warm,


humid climate. In spring, plant caladiums
tubers, "eyes" or bud up, planting them
only about 0.5 to 1-inch deep.They will
appreciate richer soil than is typical of
most Pasco County soils. Add enriching
amendments, such as manures or com-
post, at planting time to maintain a moist,
well-drained soil.
Once in the ground, caladiums are very
low maintenance.With the periodic addi-
tion of a slow-release fertilizer and removal
of an occasional damaged leaf, caladiums
won't need lots of attention.What a wel-
come treat to have at least one low
maintenance plant growing in our hot gar-
dens!
For more information about caladiums,
visit the University of Florida's website:

Four-legged friend brightens patients' days


Willie the therapy dog
spreads cheer each Tuesday

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com
Everybody at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills
knows they will have a visitor on Tuesdays;
he just happens to have a wet nose, fur and
four legs.
Each Tuesday,Willie the therapy dog goes
around the hospital to visit patients well
enough to see him. People stop in the hall-
ways to come and spend a few a minutes
with the 9-year-old golden retriever and pa-
tients' faces light up when he enters their
room.
Jaimee Underwood, director of the in-
tensive care unit (ICU) and progressive care
unit (PCU) for the hospital, said she has
seen a lot of benefits fromWillie's weekly
visits.
"I think it's very therapeutic for the pa-
tients," Underwood said. "It adds in their
healing. It puts the smile on the face of
someone who is sick. The patients who
have a long stay really look forward to Willie
coming back each week. I think it definitely
decreases the anxiety and it truly does help
their healing."
Underwood said they ask all the patients
if they would like to visit withWillie before
he shows up. He does not go into the emer-
gency room or the ICU to protect the
patient and Willie.
Willie is led each week by his owner Kay
Hoffland of Ridge Manor, north of Dade
City. She said Willie has been a therapy dog
for almost a year, starting at the Hugh Embry
Library in Dade City and then Heartland
Rehabilitation Center in Brooksville.
"He had to go through six weeks of ther-
apy dog training," Hoffland said."They learn
to move forward, left, right and back up on


command so they can
move in a tight spot.
They learn to'leave it'
on the floor. He had
to learn to sit and stay
with me walking .
away and him staying ,
there."
Willie also had to A .
learn not to lick the
patient for their com-
fort and to make sure
no medication is
transferred.
The pair get to the
hospital, 7050 Gall
Blvd. in Zephyrhills, at
about 9:30 a.m. on --
Tuesdays and they stay '
until all the patients
who have requested a
visit can see them. ,
That sometimes takes 7
until 2 p.m.
"I don't have the Willie and owner Ka
heart to leave if some- to visit patients at F
one signed up and last few months.
know he's coming,"
Hoffland said. "We see everybody.
Sometimes I'm in a room for less than five
minutes, but sometimes it's much longer. I
stay as long as they want to see him."
Hoffland said she wanted to train Willie
as a therapy dog in hospitals because of the
care her father RichardWilson received.
"My dad came to emergency care at the
hospital in December with congestive heart
failure," Hoffland said."He was in ICU and
PCU for a long time and hospice told us to
take him home and make him comfortable
because they thought he wasn't going to
make it."
The care Wilson got helped him pull
through and he recently left on a trip out
West.

minute to forget about their trouble, then
it's worth it."
Eleanor Childs of Zephyrhills was at the
hospital on June 7 and received her first
visit from Willie that day.

Cake shop's philosophy: Make each cake a work of art


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

When it comes to baking and decorating
cakes, Noemi Carambot has a clear focus.
She wants the cake she makes for cus-
tomers to be the kind of cake she'd want to
present at special occasions for family and
friends.
After all, that's how this woman from
Puerto Rico got her start in cake decorating:
She began by making cakes in her kitchen
to celebrate special times with her loved
ones.
Before launching her business, Carambot
was a school teacher. She routinely made
cakes for her students and for birthdays,
baby showers and the like.
She was in the midst of decorating one
of those cakes one day when a neighbor
dropped by her house and told her: "You
should sell your cakes."
Carambot thought her friend was crazy
and she didn't give the notion another
thought until she was out shopping for a
baby shower a few months later and ran
across the opportunity to take a cake-deco-
rating class.
She decided to go for it.
Suffice it to say, a lot of flour, sugar and
eggs have come into Carambot's life since
then.
After taking the class, she began creating
custom-made cakes part-time.That was in
1994. Over time, it became a full-time pur-
suit as her family moved from Puerto Rico
to Tampa Bay.
In recent years, she worked out of a com-
mercial kitchen at the Tampa Scottish Rite
Masonic Center on Memorial Drive, in Town
'N Country.
Just a few months ago, the company
called, L'Artisan Cake Atelier, set up its first
storefront at 131 Flagship Drive, off US 41 in
Lutz.
It's a family affair, with Carambot, daugh-


tion cake.

Francisco "Tony" Rodriguez, does chores
around the shop and handles marketing and
public relations.
Carambot said her daughter is a master-
ful decorator who got an early start in
learning the art:"She grew up watching me,
working on this."
The shop is open by appointment only.
"We like to have time with our clients,"
Carambot explained.
The goal is to give the customers the
cake they desire, while paying attention to
the customer's budget, Carambot said.
"Sometimes they come for a wedding
and they have less than 50 guests.We try to
work the cake to be three tiers. If it is not
possible, they use two tiers. Sometimes we
suggest they use a dummy cake to make it
look bigger," Carambot said.
"Sometimes they have huge weddings,
300 or 400 guests, but they don't have the
budget ....We offer them our 100-guest cake
that actually feeds 120.They work the rest
with sheet cakes."
They offer wedding cake in various fla-
vors, including vanilla, amaretto, chocolate,
cream cheese, marble and a red velvet they
developed themselves.
Wedding cakes start at $3.75 per slice, but
can cost as much as $8 a slice, depending on
how much styling the customer desires.
The shop offers various fillings, as well.
It lends out its cake stands instead of
renting them.
Throughout the years, the business has
built a customer base of more than a thou-
sand clients, attracting most through bridal
shows, the Internet or word of mouth.
Unlike many businesses, this one has
done well during the recession. It expects to
be even busier when the economy im-
proves.
In fact, Carambot said the shop is already
starting to see an uptick in large weddings.
Carambot's calendar is filled with nota-
tions of upcoming events. "We have
weddings already for next year," she said.
Typically, the family needs advance no-
tice of about a week for a special occasion
cake and a couple of months' notice for a
wedding cake, Carambot said.
But is has been known to handle rush or-
ders on occasion.
"Our cakes are all made from scratch,"
Carambot said."Our fondant is made from


14 1 June 22, 2011


scratch. It is made of sugar, marshmallows
and vanilla.We melt the marshmallows.We
add the sugar and the vanilla and then we
knead it."
Kneading the fondant is a big job that
falls primarily to Carambot's son-in-law, who
spends most Mondays working on it.
Many people don't like the taste of fon-
dant, Carambot said, but she suspects that's
because they've never tasted fondant made
from scratch.
The cake shop makes some cakes with
buttercream frosting, but it recommends
fondant be used for wedding cakes. "That
way, you get a perfect look," Carambot said.
"There are some types of decorations
that can only be done on fondant," she ex-
plained. "There are kinds of drapings, kinds
of lace," she said.
The family prides itself on its handmade
sugar flowers, which look so authentic that
they could have come directly from a gar-
den or a florist's shop.
They achieve that look by creating each
flower by hand. It is painstaking work. It can
take four hours just to create a single tiger
lily. They also make roses, peace lilies and
other flowers.
"We use a powder that comes from
SouthAfrica. It lets us make a flower that
looks just like a real flower," Carambot
said.
One of her favorite moments comes
when a customer sees one of their deco-
rated cakes and exclaims: "The flowers
are real," to which the cake decorator
proudly responds,"No,they're made from
sugar."
When someone buys a cake from her
shop, most of the price is based on how
much labor was required to create it,
Carambot said.
Running a cake shop keeps the family
hopping.
"Last week we got here at around 9 a.m.
Friday and we ended up getting home at
around 9 p.m. the following night," Tony
Rodriguez said.
They had to finish five wedding cakes
and deliver them to Ruskin,WestTampa and
South Tampa.
The business has even delivered cakes to
foreign lands, such as the Philippines,Austria
and China.
The shop's busiest months for weddings
are May, June,July, October and November.
The company also makes cakes for baby
showers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, birthday parties,
retirement parties and other special occa-
sions.
The decorators keep up their skills and
develop new ones by attending seminars
and conferences.
At one of those seminars, Carambot took
lessons from Nicholas Lodge, who made the
cake for Prince Charles and Princess Diana's
wedding.
Getting a storefront location has been one
of the company's ambitions. Some day, it
hopes to have its own stand-alone building.
Carambot also wants her company to
compete some day in a Food Network chal-
lenge.
In the meanwhile, she's content to focus
on the orders at hand.
The size of her kitchen has changed, but
Carambot sticks to her original premise: She
wants to make cakes that make others
happy

. ..A . - . . �. -'.
The Lutz Community Center, one of the recreational facilities now requiring a fee for use, is
the home of the GFWC Lutz-Land 0' Lakes Woman's Club, and was the spot of the June
14 meeting that determined co-sponsorship as a solution.


FEES, from page 1
Several group representatives seemed
pleased with the idea, and appeared sur-
prised that such a simple solution had
eluded them for close to two years.
"Early on there was some miscommuni-
cation between our department and the
nonprofit groups with the co-sponsorship,"
Thornton explained."There were also issues
with their national office. And once they
stopped coming to us and using the build-
ing, we stopped coming to them."
Thornton said the communication start-
ed after Crist was elected last year: He"got
everyone talking.
"It was really a situation of'let's just have
a meeting, work out the details, and figure
out where we are,'"Thornton said.
With a compromise reached, official pa-
perwork must be drawn up.
"What's important now is getting it on
record so that the history is permanent,"
Crist said.
To make the process official, Crist ex-
plained that a county record letter would be
drawn up outlining everything agreed upon
at the meeting.Then, the letter will be sent
to the Parks and Recreation director to con-
firm the agreements and proceed forward.

Not everyone is happy
"This meeting was display of true com-
munity involvement," Crist said."We came to
a reasonable consensus, and came up with
reputable solutions.
"Almost everybody left satisfied."
Those who didn't were profit organiza-
tions, whose voice was best represented by
Elaine Peverell, executive director at the
Lutz Learning Center, a preschool and child
care center.
Peverell has been in the Lutz area as an
educator for 30 years, and relies heavily on
field trips to reinforce the lessons taught to
her students. She explained that at the end


of field trips, she brings her students to
parks to eat lunch and finish the day off.
However, the rates for profit organizations
are even higher to use these facilities, and
Peverell said,"it's too expensive."
"It starts to really add up," she explained.
"We're now starting to look at field trips in
other counties."
Peverell suggested making programs
more cost effective.
"Either charge me in my tax bill or
charge me for the park. But not both," she
said.
Thornton, however, said the county
couldn't subsidize for profit groups.
"Profit groups are for profit so it's a high-
er fee and it does drive them to different
places,"Thornton said."But the fact is, we're
more interested in providing for community
groups, not businesses."
"We're just going to have to work to find
a solution for this as well," Crist said.
But, for the nonprofit organizations such
as the Woman's Club, the outcome of the
meeting was met with jubilation.
"I appreciate (Thornton) being so forth-
right," Kraemer said. "He gave us the
blessing for the building as well as the at-
tached acreage. And, I must applaud
Commissioner Crist for stepping up with
his leadership.
"Now this will bring back Market in the
Park, Christmas Card Lane and other events."
Kraemer's next step is to confirm the
idea of co-sponsorship with the organiza-
tions state president, Teddy Hulse, before
moving forward with the Parks and
Recreation Department.
Following the meeting, she gleefully dis-
cussed getting back into the building and
the upcoming socials the organization
would have, looking to get back in during
the next couple weeks.
"It's not been a short fight," Kraemer said.
"But it's been a sweet victory."


HART, from page 1
taxes and a $1.4 million reduction of federal
money.
Another blow came to HART in
November when Hillsborough voters voted
against a 1-cent sales tax increase on every
dollar spent within the county, which would
have, in part, added money for bus routes.
The new budget needs to be adopted by
September to go in place in November and
the two most likely options to plug the budg-
et hole are cutting services or raising fares.
"We knew we were going to go in this
direction if the sales tax failed," said HART
board member and Hillsborough
Commissioner Mark Sharpe referring to vot-
ers rejecting the sales tax increase.
Sharpe said he would rather look at
which bus routes are used the least and cut
from those instead of increasing fare. If a
hike did happen, he said it would likely be
25 cents per ride, but predicts that would
drive people away from using the services.
"When you raise fees like that, people
tend to stop using them," Sharpe said."We'd
have the same problem next year and the
next year, if we go down that route."
HART is proposing reductions to 10
routes starting in November, which would
reduce ridership by 1.8 percent.
A proposed increase of 0.4683 cents per
$1,000 in property value,up to 0.5 cents,
was also discussed, but Sharpe said mem-
bers did not want to hike taxes in the
current economy. If raised, the average
household in the county - valued at
$92,820 - would have to pay an extra
$1.61 each year to a total of $46.41.
Other possibilities for saving money in-
clude:
-Eliminating a proposed 3.2 percent
salary increase for drivers and mechanics.
-Cutting the percentage of health bene-
fits HART pays for family members.
-Rejecting a planned $2,046 trip for
HART Chairwoman Alison Hewitt to a na-
tional transit association meeting in New
Jersey.


-lAM I ZU riaersnip is up.


-Reviewing em-
ployee salaries.
-Have interim
HART director Philip
Hale keep running
the organization. Hale
is paid $149,427 com-
pared with $185,338
Mark Sharpe for David Armijo,who
was fired inApril.
At this point, HART is looking at almost
any option that prevents layoffs.
"We want people to have jobs," Sharpe
said.
HART is even considering a radical merg-
er with Pinellas County's bus service,
Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA),
which could save money by consolidating
overhead costs.
The idea was proposed by Sen. Jack
Latvala, R-St. Petersburg, chairman of the
Florida Senate Transportation Committee.
Latvala said the idea would not eliminate
any bus services.
HART already operates a bus route that
takes people from Tampa to Clearwater,
while PSTA runs two buses between
Pinellas and Tampa.
HART spokeswoman Marcia Mejia said
her agency has invited Latvala to speak at an
upcoming board meeting.
Currently, HART operates 197 buses and
36 vans that transport people along 32
routes. The total ridership for the agency
was 12.8 million last year.

Area baseball talent shines in MLB draft


Millions of kids grow up dreaming of one day
playing professional baseball and four local talents
took a step toward completing that fantasy during
the MLB draft June 6-8.They have untilAug. 15 to
sign with the team that selected them, but for
now the lucky few can be easily spotted by the
beaming smiles they are likely showcasing.

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.comrn



Matt Campbell's long journey


Matt Campbell was named
Freedom's Pitcher of the Year as a
senior in 2006, but the former
Patriot had to put in three years
on the University of Florida's (UF)
club baseball team before getting
a chance to shine in college.
Campbell, who just complet-
ed his civil engineering degree,
helped the Gators club team
win the 2009 South Atlantic
South Conference champi-
onship and posted a 7-1 record
with a 0.16 ERA and 63 strike-
outs in 55.1 innings. However,
the 6-foot-2, 200-pound right
handed pitcher wanted his shot


with the real UF squad.
He finally got that chance as a junior in
2010, when he appeared in eight games
working 11.1 innings. Campbell's workload
increased to 15.1 innings in 15 appearances
with a 5.28 ERA, 13 strikeouts and recording
one save as a senior this season through the
NCAA Super Regionals.
It's been a winding road for Campbell,
but that journey may serve him well as he
works toward making an MLB roster.
"There was some adversity along the
way," Campbell said."I had to play catch up
my last two years on the team because I did-
n't have that coaching and game experience
a lot of the other guys drafted have. But
even though I may be a little behind, I know
what it takes to put my time in and not ex-
pect things to be handed to me."
Campbell was taken in the 24 round,
pick No. 751, in the MLB draft by the
Philadelphia Phillies on June 7. His mother
Connie Couey was the first person to tell
him he was chosen.

er Matt Campbell was picked by the Philadelphia Phillies
in the MLB draft June 7. (Photo courtesy of UF athletics)


"I was watching the draft tracker and
somehow I must have missed my name the
first time it went by," Campbell said. "She
called and asked me if I was excited and I
think my exact words were 'am I excited
about what?' It didn't take me too long to
figure out what she was talking about."
Campbell was picked the year before in
the 42 round by the Cincinnati Reds, but
opted to return to UF to complete his de-
gree and get more experience.
"I wanted to walk on to the team earlier,
that didn't happen, but I believe Florida was
the right place for me academically,"
Campbell said. "They have a strong engi-
neering college and that's what I majored
in. It's the best school in Florida and it had
what I was looking for even though I had to
wait a few years."
Campbell played at Freedom as a junior
and senior after playing his first two years at
Tampa Catholic. He uses a two-seam fastball,
slider and split-finger changeup.


Maggard picked by the Tigers


Former Pasco High and current Florida
Southern College senior catcher Zach
Maggard was picked by the Detroit Tigers in
the 34 round with the No. 1,037 pick in the


MLB draft on June 8.
The 5-foot-1 1,180-pound Maggard was a
four-year starter for the Moccasins, where he
played in 182 games, 177 starts. He hit .291
with 30 runs scored, 26 RBI and nine home
runs in 2011. His 34 career homers are the
third most in Florida Southern program his-
tory.
Maggard graduated from Pasco in 2007.


John Michael Gant's
pitching forWiregrass Ranch
earned him a difficult choice.
He signed a scholarship
with Division I Long Island
University, Brooklyn Campus,
earlier his year, but was also
drafted by the New York
Mets in the 21 round with
the No. 642 overall pick on
June 7.
Gant said it was his dream
to play Division I baseball at
his signing, but the chance to
sign professionally was too
big of an opportunity for the
Bulls' ace. He inked his name
to a contract with the Mets
on June 10.
The shock of being drafted
still hasn't full sunk in for
Gant, or the fact that he has


signed with a profession team.
"I figured I would be drafted, but it was
still a surprise because it's every little kid's
dream," Gant said."It's a huge opportunity."
Gant participated in a pre-draft work-
out a few days before the draft began at
the Mets' stadium.
"That was my first time there," Gant
said."I got to throw off of the bullpen and
the regular mound. It was really cool.The
stadium is huge. It was awesome throwing
in there."
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Gant throws a
fastball, curveball and changeup. He had a
6-0 record with two saves, a 1.90 ERA and
107 strikeouts as a senior for the Bulls. He
was named to the Sunshine Athletic


Wiregrass Ranch graduate John Michael Gant was
taken by the New York Mets in the 21 round of the MLB
draft June 7 and has since signed. (File photo)


Conference first team in 2011 despite
being somewhat new to pitching.
"It was awesome working with coach
(Jeff) Swymer in high school," Gant said.
"He's basically made me into the pitcher I
am today.We've worked together the last
two years and I didn't really pitch before
that. I was a shortstop my freshman year
and pitched a little as a sophomore, but re-
ally first took to the mound as a junior."
That move to the pitching seems to
have been a good one, earning Gant his
first real job ever.
"I guess I've just concentrated on base-
ball," Gant said with a laugh."I never had
any job before."


Former Gator picked by Cardinals


Jonathan Cornelius, a 2006
graduate of Land 0' Lakes
High, was selected in the 24 . ..
round with the 740 overall . ,r
pick by the St. Louis Cardinals
on June 7. The 6-foot, 200-
pound left-handed pitcher
recently graduated from
Florida Institute of
Technology, a Division II pro-
gram in the Sunshine State
Conference (SSC).
As a senior at Florida Tech,
Cornelius had an 8-1 record
with a 2.39 ERA in 15 appear-
ances while setting the Land O' La
Panthers single season record Jonathan C
by striking out 129 batters in Cardinals.
98 innings, the most for any
pitcher in Division II baseball in 2011.
Cornelius was a workhouse for the
Panthers, completing five games, including
a one-hitter at Eckerd College onApril 8.
He held the opposition to a .201 batting
average as a senior.
The southpaw had an 8-4 record with a
4.17 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 2010. He
had a 28-9 record with two saves and a

Lutz Leaguerettes take county all-star tournament


Victory marks end

of Tumblesons'

coaching tenure

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.comrn


Doubleheaders are com-
mon in softball, but the Lutz
Leaguerettes Ponytail all
stars had to win all five
games of a quintupleheader
on May 22 to take the
Hillsborough County cham-
pionship.
"The girls really worked
hard to win all five games,"
said coach Mike Tumbleson.
"It was very hot that day and
they came through it."
The team was made up
of all-star players from Lutz
Leaguerettes teams in this
spring season.The squad lost
its first game in the event on
May 20 against Brandon,

forcing it to win the five straight contests on
Sunday, May 22 to claim the title.
The Lutz all stars' championship Sunday
began at 11 a.m.They were being crowned
county winners around 8 p.m.They had to
defeat Brandon in games four and five to
win the title, taking the decisive contest 18-
17 to finish with a 5-1 record in the event.
The challenge was daunting for the
squad, but pitcher Kacie Tumbleson, Mike's
daughter, said the all stars saw it as an op-
portunity.


"We all stayed positive the whole time,"
said Kacie, who recently graduated from
tcimbrciinncr High."We just said losing the
first game meant we could play more games
together on Sunday. If we'd won the first, it
would have only taken three games on
Sunday to win the tournament."
The Lutz all stars were up 18-14 in the
final inning of the fifth game. Brandon
loaded the bases and its
cleanup hitter smacked a
guerettes ball to left field to drive in
)ster three runs and she attempt-
ed to score on an
inside-the-park grand slam.
nson Lutz catcher Danielle
Iowski Kozlowski tagged out the
would-be tying run and re-
lief pitcher Taylor Dec got
on the next Brandon batter to
kie pop up for the final out.
)es Dec, who also plays out-
ttman field, caught the ball that
wford ended the game.
y "It was so crazy and I
nger was so nervous in the last
house inning," said Dec, who will
be a senior at Gaither High
in the fall."I saw the popup
and I knew it was my ball.... It wasn't too
high so I didn't have a lot of time to over
think it."
Dec has been playing in the league the
last eight years, while Kacie started 12 years
ago. It was the first time either had been a
part of an all star team that won a county
championship. Dec will have a chance to do
it again in 2012, but it is Kacie's final year in
the program.
"It was great for me to go out with a
bang," Kacie said. "It's the last year for my

parents coaching too, so we all went out on
top."
Mike and his wife Kathi, an assistant
for the Lutz all stars, have been coaching
with the Lutz Leaguerettes the last 21
years, starting with their oldest daughter
Jessica.They also coached their other two
daughters, Shanna and Amber, and Mike
coached their son Jay in the Lutz Little
League.
"It was great to coach together for so
many years," Kathi said."We were very simi-
lar as coaches.We're both very laid back and
know it's about having fun for the girls. It's
good to go out with us winning our first
county tournament like this."


Mike said it was a joy to coach in the
league.
"The Lutz Leaguerettes, and the Little
League, are amazing athletic programs for
area kids," Mike said."There isn't an athletic
program like this anywhere else."
The Ponytail division is for girls ages 14-18.
Besides Lutz and Brandon, other Leaguerettes
programs come from North Tampa, Temple
Terrace and Town'N Country.The Leaguerettes
has divisions for girls as young as 6.
Lutz Leaguerettes and Little League
home games are played at the Oscar Cooler
Sports Complex onW Lutz Lake Fern Road.

McNickle signs with St. Petersburg


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.comrn

Trey McNickle has been playing
baseball for most of his life, but it was
a late move to become a pitcher that
helped him earn a college scholar-
ship.
The 6-foot-5 McNickle, who recent-
ly graduated from Land O' Lakes High,
first picked up a baseball about 14
years ago mostly as an outfielder, but a
suggestion from Gators baseball
coach Calvin Baisley moved him to
the pitching mound.
"I hadn't ever pitched in high
school before my senior season,"
McNickle said."Coach Baisley asked if
I wanted to give it a try in October. I
figured it would be fun."
McNickle signed June 6 to pitch at
St. Petersburg College, where he plans
to study business. He is still new to
pitching, using mainly a fastball with
movement, but his near sidearm deliv-
ery seems to give batters trouble


when he comes out of the bullpen.
"Throwing almost sidearm was a
suggestion by coach Baisley too,"
McNickle said."He said it would give
people problems at the end of games.
I knew if I was going to pitch, I want-
ed to be a closer and not a starter."
McNickle served as the Gators
closer in 2011 recording six saves,
more than any other pitcher in Pasco
County. His relief work helped the
Gators go 20-9 and reach the Class 4A
regional tournament for the first time
since 2008.
"He did a lot for us this year,"
Baisley said. "It helped to know we
could bring him in to end the game
and it saved our starters.As a batter he
always seemed to get the big hit for
us. He didn't have the highest batting
average, but he came up big in big sit-
uations. He has a very high baseball
IQ."
McNickle had a 2.73 ERA with a 3-
3 record while recording 13
strikeouts in 25.2 innings. He was


named to theAll-Laker/All-Lutz News
baseball first team as a closer this year.
McNickle also batted .262 with 24
RBI, 23 runs scored, 21 hits, five dou-
bles and four homers.
McNickle played at Land O' Lakes
the last three years. He came to cen-
tral Pasco when his father, Russ
McNickle, became the baseball coach
at Saint Leo University.
"I've loved playing here," McNickle
said. "My senior season I had so much
fun just coming to practice with
everyone."
St. Petersburg went 29-24 this year.
McNickle said the Titans' coaches' pro-
fessional attitude is what made him
pick the school.
"I've always wanted to play in col-
lege and now I get the chance,"
McNickle said. "It's been my dream
and I can't thank coach Baisley
enough for what he did to help me
get signed."

sons. She is a 2002 graduate of the University

Rogers leads Wildcats athletics into the future


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Land O' Lakes resident Mike Rogers is a
novice athletic director, but he is overflow-
ing with years of experience from coaching
and playing sports in Pasco County.
Rogers, 37, was hired as
Wesley Chapel High's athletic
director (AD) on May 23, the
first time he has served as an
AD in high school. ,
"I'm excited to take on this
position," Rogers said. "I'm hop-
ing to work closely with the ,
coaches and student-athletes to
develop a quality athletic pro-
gram."
The decision to apply for Mike Rogers
the position was an easy one
for Rogers.
"I've always had a passion for athletics
and grew up playing sports," Rogers said."I
enjoy working with students and I'm look-
ing to bring a new level of excitement to
Wildcats athletics."
Rogers did not have any immediate
changes in mind for the department, but is
instead working to build connections to
help him guide all the programs in the fu-
ture.
"I want to develop relationships with the
coaches and students to bring everyone to-
gether," Rogers said."I want to get everyone
at the school and in the community excited
about our athletics. I'm new at this, so I'm
also working to find what my role and re-
sponsibilities should be so that I don't do
too much or too little. I need to find the
right balance to let the coaches coach."
It is that attitude and desire to work with
coaches and students that set Rogers apart
from the other applicants, according to
Wesley Chapel principal Carin Nettles.

"Mike was chosen for his ability to con-
nect with students, parents, coaches,
administration and the community," Nettles
said."He is thorough in his approach, fair,
honest and his attention to detail is second
to none. Mike has coached multiple sports
during his tenure as a teacher, and is a
strong leader here at Wesley
Chapel High School."
Rogers grew up in Holiday
and played baseball and soccer
while attending Gulf High. He
worked at Mitchell for six years
as an instructional assistant be-
fore coming to Wesley Chapel
two years ago.
Rogers works in the student
support assistance program
(SSAP), which helps kids stay
in school and succeed. He has
been the Wildcats junior varsity girls soccer
coach the last two years and was the boys
cross country leader in 2010. He is unsure if
he will remain at the helm of those pro-
grams next year.
The newAD replaces Steve Mumaw, who
served at the post the last six years. Mumaw
resigned the position in May citing a desire
to spend more time with his family.
"It just takes up too much of my time
and it took away from my family life,"
Mumaw said."I loved working with the kids,
but it's time for someone else to step in."
Mumaw will remain as an electives
teacher and said he hopes to remain as the
pitching coach for the baseball team.
As for his replacement, Rogers said he
would like to fast-forward several months
and years to see what the department be-
comes.
"I'm focused on building up all the pro-
grams in the present so we can be excited
in the future," Rogers said. "I'm hopeful of
what's to come."

Youth leadership gathering aims to combat violence


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

The young women stood in a circle, out-
side in the parking lot, tossing soft, colorful
balls at one another.
They called out each other's names as
part of an icebreaker aimed at helping them
learn each other's names during the first of
10 sessions this summer at the Sunrise
Domestic and Sexual Violence Center's ad-
ministrative office in Dade City.
The teenagers are taking part in a
SummerYouth Leadership Initiative aimed
at helping them to develop skills to combat
sexual violence, domestic violence, gender
discrimination and other forms of abuse.
The group will meet weekly in three-
hour sessions to devise a campaign to help
raise community awareness about these so-
cial problems and to try to enlist others in a
quest to create a community where all peo-
ple are valued, honored and respected.
Jackie Bavin, the primary prevention co-
ordinator for the center, is leading the
sessions. She said one hour will be devoted
to teaching leadership skills, an hour will go
to education and the third hour will be de-
voted to creating a community project to
raise awareness about these issues.
Bavin said she's trying to help these
youths develop leadership skills so they can
be "active bystanders."
"One of the things that we know is that
when we stand up for other people, when
people know how to handle situations -

an activity in a leadership development pro-
gram in Dade City. (Photo by B.C. Manion)

violent situations, bullying - it tends to
stop them.
"Youths don't have those skills.A lot of
adults don't have those skills," Bavin said.
By educating these youths about vio-
lence, domestic violence and other forms of
abuse and by helping them to develop lead-
ership skills, the hope is that they know
how to respond when any of these issues
touch their lives, or the lives of people they
know.
"Leaders naturally know when to step in,
or how to handle situations," Bavin said.
They have the skills to assess situations
and to know where to turn if a situation is
beyond their control, she said.
The program will cover a number of top-
ics, Bavin said. It will cover healthy


relationships and discuss the topic of sexual
abuse within relationships, she said.
Statistics show that one in three
teenagers will experience dating violence in
some form, physical, sexual or emotional,
Bavin said.
"We're covering sexual harassment.We're
covering gender issues," she said.And the
class includes learning how to discern the
messages that often are conveyed through
the media, such as what roles men and
women"are supposed to play," she said.
Schools have a limited time to deal with
these kinds of issues because they're fo-
cused on academics, said Bavin, who has
given talks at schools about preventing bul-
lying and other types of violence.
It's impossible to deliver a comprehen-
sive message, though.
"Some of the schools, we get 30 minutes.
Some of the schools, we get 50 minutes," she
said.There also are issues with scheduling
and transportation conflicts.
This program gives students a much bet-
ter opportunity to learn about the issues
and be involved in raising community
awareness to combat the problems. The
youths taking part chose to do so, Bavin
said.
Besides her presentations, Bavin will
bring in community leaders to share knowl-
edge with the youths.
She thinks it is important for both the
youths and adults in leadership roles to
learn to work with each other and develop
mutual respect.


Araceli Tijerina of Dade City is pleased
that her daughter,Tati, has the opportunity
to attend the program.
"I think it is a good idea for them to have
a program like this," she said."It helps them
to distinguish if they are ever in a violent re-
lationship. It's good education."
Another parent, Janet Acevedo of
Lacoochee, agreed:"I think it's a great thing."
Janice Acevedo, 14, said she's glad to be
able to earn community service hours for
participating in the leadership training.
"I wanted to do something over the sum-
mer, rather than staying at home," she said.
TatiTijerina, 12, said she thinks the pro-
gram will give her better skills to tackle
issues if they arise."If I ever have a problem,
I would know what to do."
In addition to Bavin, others from the
Sunrise Center who are involved in the proj-
ect are Laura Farley, a program assistant and
Christina Bates, social change community
coordinator.
Dade City teens Nia Henderson and
Christina Williams, both 17, and Michele
Cruz, 15, also are glad to be part of the pro-
gram, they said.
They tossed out plenty of ideas when
Bavin quizzed the group about the types of
violence and talked about potential causes.
Dakota Yonkey, 17, of San Antonio, said
she hopes one day to make a true differ-
ence.
"I want to incorporate horses with the
rehabilitation of children who have been
abused," she said.
