HART unveils new flex

service in Lutz/Northdale


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Hillsborough Area Regional Transit
Authority (HART) will unveil a new pro-
gram this month that allows people set their
own public transportation schedule.
Marcia Mejia, HART public information
officer, said the new program is called
HARTFlex. Residents along Dale Mabry
Highway can schedule van rides to several
locations in Lutz, Northdale and
Carrollwood. Residents are picked up at the
doorstep.
"HARTFlex is a win-win for both HART
and our customers," Mejia said."HARTFlex is
community-based transportation that is es-
pecially more efficient for HART to operate
in less densely developed areas of
Hillsborough County.
Moreover, customers bene- St, jose
fit from the advantages of Hospital -
regular bus service with
the flexibility of curbside
pickup."
It is the first time HART
has offered such a program
in the area. Destinations in-
clude Saint Joseph's
Hospital-North, Northgate
Square, Lake Park, Gaither
High School, Home
Depot/Sam's Club, Target
and the intersection of Gaither
Fletcher Avenue and Dale High Scho
Mabry.

and Northdale begins July 11.

"In designing the flex zone, it was impor-
tant to provide service to St. Joseph's
Hospital-North," Mejia said."The HARTFlex
van can go into St.Joseph's Hospital-North
to pick up customers, instead of requiring
customers to walk out to a bus stop or
make infrastructure enhancements to ac-
commodate a 40-foot bus to enter into
hospital property."
Residents can also be taken from any of
those locations back to their homes. Return
trips leave from the hospital on the half
hour.
The new service begins on Monday, July
11. Each ride costs 85 cents.The fare is kept
inexpensive because of savings brought on
by changes in the regular bus routes in the
area.

County to

standardize

community

planning

By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Efforts began last week to develop a
guide to community planning in
Hillsborough County.
The goal is to develop a template
that can be used by individual commu-
nities when they are drawing up plans
to address the unique nature of their
community.
The idea is to have a standard ap-
proach, while acknowledging distinct
differences within communities, said
Lisa Silva, the project manager for the
Hillsborough County City-County
Planning Commission that is heading up
the project.
The guide is being developed in re-
sponse to some of the findings in a
March 31 audit report of the county-
wide planning process.
The 48-page report was completed
by Cherry, Bekaert & Holland, LLP, of
Tampa.

LONG LIVE THE GUV'NA


Kevin Wright raises $6,200
to earn symbolic spot

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The 64th Lutz Independence Day
Celebration at Bullard Park brought out
thousands for carnival-style food, the annual
parade and to take in one the small town's
biggest traditions - the naming of the
Guv'na.
Four tossed their hats in the ring for the
honor this year, and Kevin Wright emerged
victorious.
Wright, a partner in the Lutz-based
restaurant Splash! An Ocean Grill, was the
last to sign up, but he got some advice from
2009 victor Suzin Carr on how to win.
"It was the 11th hour when I signed up,"
Wright said. "We I got some advice from
Suzin on ways to raise money.Also, my part-
ner at Splash (Chip Roehl) is an advertising
guy and helped get the word out. I didn't re-
alize how much over my head I was at first
and I needed a lot of people to come out on
top."
Wright's strategy was to have more
events than any other candidate, with two
every week for the six-week campaign, in-
stead of one or two large fundraisers.
"We just kept saying, let's do another
event and another,"Wright said."It's all for a
good cause, but I did want to win.As I was
standing up on the stage I was thinking I
have to win this. I wanted to go all out."
Wright had attended the celebration
every year with his family since they came
to Lutz 21 years ago. He said he has always
wanted to run for the post and finally decid-
ed to go for it.
"This all happened because my wife
Kelly and daughters Cierra and Taylor sup-
ported me the whole way,"Wright said. "A
lot of local restaurants helped me out too


and Chip really helped with the marketing.
"I also need to thank the Lutz Civic
Association for putting this on each year be-
cause I had no idea how much it takes to
do,"Wright said."They motivate and support
the candidates so we can raise the most
money for all the local charities."
His campaign raised about $6,200, some
$3,000 more than the total brought in dur-
ing last year's race.
Civic Association representative Eleanor
Cecil said the overall amount this year
would not be available for a few days as
they tally up every penny.
The money eventually goes to the Lutz-
Land O' Lakes Women's Club, which will use
all of it to fund local charities like scouts, the
Civil Air Patrol and scholarships for area chil-
dren.
The other three candidates for Guv'na in-
cludedAnnette Bellingar, Mitch Smithey and
Sheila Tramontana.
Wright was sworn in as the Guv'na on a
copy of "Green Eggs and Ham" by 2010
Guv'na Stephanie Ensor.
"Being Guv'na gave me the opportunity
to learn more about the community and
raise money for charities," Ensor said."It was
everything I expected and then some. I got
to wear my sash around and pretend like I
was famous for a year.
"I also have an appreciation for what
makes this event happen each year. It takes
a lot of hands helping out and it's all volun-
teers," Ensor continued."I'm more inspired
than ever to live in this community because
it takes a lot to pull off something like this."
The day stared out with the annual 5K
race [Coverage, page 12] and also included
local vendors selling various foods and holi-
day related items, a parade and a cake bake
contest and auction.
The parade had floats from groups like
the scouts, youth sports organizations,
churches, politicians and groups like the
Lutz Patriots.

How to avoid some common summertime hazards


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

It's summertime - that time of year
when swimmers hit the beaches, families
have cookouts and lots of people break out
the fireworks.
To help you have a good time while en-
joying your summer break, we've compiled
some safety suggestions from some local
and national sources.
Lisa Patterson, communications manager
for St. Joseph's Hospital, put together an
email outlining common reasons for trips to
the emergency room during the summer -
and suggestions aimed at helping people to
avoid such trips.
The most common injuries seen in emer-


agency rooms during the summer months are
sprains, strains and back injuries from falls or
sporting activities, according to Patterson.
Other common summer health issues in-
volve heat, insects, water, fireworks and a
wide assortment of injuries.
Alcohol-related motor vehicle, boat or jet
ski accidents and falls from ladders, roofs or
attics, are common causes for summer emer-
gency visits, Patterson notes.
So are missed medications by people
who go on vacation and forget to take their
medicine.The missed medications can lead
to heart attacks, strokes and diabetic and hy-
pertensive emergencies, the email adds.
Other kinds of emergencies involve neck
injuries from diving into unknown shallow
water; snake and dog bites; jellyfish and


sting ray stings; food poisoning from food
left out too long at picnics; injuries from
lightning strikes and puncture wounds from
sharp objects, such as nails in old boards.

Here are some tips from Patterson to
help stay out of the emergency room:
-Stay well hydrated, especially when
taking medications that are prone to dehy-
drate such as diuretics, heart and many
other types of medications.
-Wear sunscreen with a SPF rating of
at least 30 to 45 and reapply regularly.Wear a
hat and long sleeves or use an umbrella, if
necessary, to avoid prolonged sun exposure.
-Use insect repellent with DEET.
Read labels and use lower strengths for
younger children.Also, wash it off children


when indoors for the day.
-Wear helmets rated for safety by
the Consumer Product Safety Commission
when riding bicycles, skateboards, ATVs,
horses or scooters.
-Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes, not
sandals, when operating a lawnmower. Keep
children under the age of 16 off of riding
mowers.
-The safest way to enjoy fireworks
is at a public display. If you are planning to
use them yourself, make sure they are legal
in your locale. Never light them indoors or
near grass, and have water nearby. Never let
children light fireworks and supervise chil-
dren using fireworks all times.
-Don't drink and drive.Assign a des-
ignated driver.


Vicky Yeakley, public education coordinator for
Hillsborough County Fire Rescue, also shared some
safety tips that she o npi/edt


Fireworks safety
-The best way to stay safe is to go to a public fire-
works display.
-Do not relight a sparkler that appears to be a dud.
Also, keep a can of moist sand nearby to hold the used
sparklers. Discard the used sparklers a day after they've
cooled off.
-If you suffer a minor burn, cool it with cool tap
water. In the event of a serious burn, call 911. Do not apply
oils, sprays, ointments, ice or butter to any burn.


Water safety tips
-Make sure pools and spas have four-sided fencing
with self-latching locks.
-Do not leave children unattended near water, not
even for a minute. Children require supervision during all
water activities.
-Designate a "water watcher" who will remain alco-
hol-free.
-Have a portable phone or a cellphone near the
pool.A child can die in the time it takes an adult to go into
the house to answer the telephone.Also, having a telephone
nearby saves time in the event of an emergency.
-Keep water rescue equipment handy including
poles, ropes, flotation devices and first-aid equipment.
-Learn CPR.
-Enroll your chil-
dren in swimming
lessons taught by a quali-
fied instructor and, if
you don't know how to
swim, it's a good idea to -
learn.
-Teach kids water
safety habits, which
include no running,
pushing or roughhous-
ing near the water.


Grill safety tips
-Do not leave objects that
could catch on fire close to
the grill.
-Do not leave cook-
ing unattended.
-Position the grill well e gvu
away from deck railings and sid-
ings and from under eaves or
overhanging branches.
-Keep the grill away from
areas used for foot traffic, lawn
games and play areas.
-Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
-Use long-handled grilling tools to protect the cook.
-Remove grease or fat build-up in trays below the
grill so it cannot catch fire by a hot grill.
-Be sure to use the proper type of starter fluid for a
charcoal grill and do not add charcoal starter fluid when the
coals or kindling have been ignited. Be sure to keep the
starter fluid away from heat sources and from children.
-Keep starter fluid away from children and heat sources.
-If you have a propane grill, check the cylinder
hose for leaks before using it.
-Do not use propane or charcoal grills indoors. If
used indoor in or enclosed spaces, they pose a fire risk and a
risk of exposing people to toxic gases, which can be lethal.

Help pets beat summer heat


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.comrn

Summer has begun and Hillsborough
and Pasco county departments want to help
people protect their pets as the tempera-
tures rise.
"We see a lot of problems each year with
people calling us about their pets suffering
from the heat," said Hillsborough
Department of Animal Services director Bill
Armstrong. "Really, it's rather simple to keep
pets healthy and happy during the summer."
PascoAnimal Services education director
Rosemary Lyons agreed withArmstrong:"It's
just a matter of taking the right precau-
tions just like you would with your children
or yourself if you're going outside in the
heat."
Both said it is important to have plenty
of fresh, clean water available to dogs, cats
and other pets at all times. Keeping them in
cooler parts of the home will also help pre-
serve their health.
Other tips from the departments in-
clude:
-Make shade available.
-Use caution when exercising dogs,
even in the morning and evening.
-Limit outdoor exposure for older and
younger pets, or those with heavy coats.
-Never leave a dog alone in a car for
any length of time on warm days.
Even on mildly sunny days, cars can
quickly become heated deathtraps for unat-
tended dogs, according to Lyons.When the
air is 85 degrees outside, a car can become
102 in just 10 minutes and can soar to 120
in 30 minutes.
Lyons added it is illegal to leave any ani-
mal in a car for any length of time. Cats can
also suffer from heatstroke, but it is more
common in dogs as they tend to be more
active. Heatstroke can be fatal and requires
immediate veterinary attention.
According to the American Animal


Dogs are more likely to suffer from heat-
stroke than other pets because they are
very active. (Photo courtesy of Pasco
Animal Services)

Hospital Association, signs of heatstroke in-
clude panting, staring, anxious expression,
refusal to obey commands, warm and dry
skin, high fever, rapid heartbeat, uncon-
trolled drooling, vomiting and collapsing.
If an animal is suffering from heatstroke
and needs immediate attention:
-Submerge their body in cool, not icy,
water or spray it lightly with a hose. Focus
on cooling the head and neck area.
-Bring the animal inside an air-condi-
tioned building.
-Do not force them to drink water, but
offer it to them.
-Bring the animal to a vet as soon as
possible.

vices, or call (813) 744-5660. For Pasco, visit

Local Girl Scout earns prestigious award


By Zack Peterson
zpeterson@cnewspubs.com

Since the fourth grade, being involved
in Girl Scouts has been sweet, sweet
music toAlexisAldamuy's ears.
And now, 10 years later, as a graduate of
Wharton High,Aldamuy's persistence and
hard work have made her a recipient of
the Gold Award, the highest level of
achievement a Girl Scout can earn, which
she was rewarded with on June 5.
Along with the orchestra, Aldamuy
started participating in Scouts 10 years
ago when she moved to the Wesley
Chapel/NewTampa area where her troop
is based.
"I had just moved to Tampa and didn't
know anybody,"Aldamuy said. "My mom
thought it was a good way to meet peo-
ple.
"After awhile, I got really close to every-
one.They're all my sisters now."
As a part ofTroop 1012,Aldamuy found
her passion in the activities the scouts of-
fered.
"I really liked the events and activities
we did like camping,"Aldamuy said.
After years of experience with the
troop,Aldamuy first had to complete 40
hours of career leadership before pursu-
ing the Gold Award, an honor equivalent
to the Eagle ScoutAward in boy scouting,
and a task that requires numerous steps.
As a prerequisite to the Gold Award,


-" S




Alexis Aldamuy, a graduate of Wharton High, was a recipient
of the Gold Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can
achieve. According to Aldamuy's troop leader, Terri Thiele,
"less than 5 percent" of scouts earn this award."


Aldamuy and other scouts in her troop
completed the 40 hours of career leader-
ship by going on a college road trip.
"It was to get us thinking about the col-
leges we'd attend and future careers,"
Aldamuy said.
According to Aldamuy, the Gold Award
requires a detailed community service
project that must fulfill 65 hours of volun-
teer work.
"It is a very rigorous process," said
troop leaderTerriThiele, the woman who
has worked with Aldamuy and her fellow
scouts for the past ten years."Less than 5


percent of the girls her age
even earn this award:'
The scout must identify
a community issue and do
the necessary research to
become knowledgeable
about the subject. Then,
they must invite others to
join their cause, create the
project plan, and submit it
for review by their particu-
lar Girl Scout council.
After doing so, the scout
must carry out the plan, in-
spire others and leave
behind a legacy that will
carry the passion behind
the project for years to
come.
As a dedicated violinist,


Aldamuy found her inspira-
tion for the project in the music programs
around local elementary schools.
"I noticed the music programs had been
diminishing, especially at the elementary
school level," Aldamuy said. "The lack of
music introduced in elementary school also
seemed to lead to decreased music pro-
grams in high school too."
So, as part of her service project, she
booked a room at the Holiday Inn Hotel off
Bruce B. Downs to put on a program known
as "Got Music?!"
There, she showcased instruments with
the help of local music stores such as Bidel


More Gold Scouts
Other area Girl Scouts who won the
Gold Award:
Rachel Landes, Steinbrenner High
Jessica Rosenblum, King High


Music and HappyTunes and invited local
elementary schools like Clark, Pride,
Hunters Green, Heritage and Lawton
Chiles to give them a hands on experi-
ence.
"It was a total of 84 hours after putting
everything together,"Aldamuy said."And the
legacy piece I put together was a power
point I made that I gave to elementary
schools detailing the instruments, the types
of music they can play, and the sounds the
instruments make.
"It felt like I accomplished something re-
ally big. It really helped me find what I love
to do, and it was great to give that back to
the community."
Aldamuy still plans to remain involved
with the scouts even though she will be at-
tending Stetson University in the fall with
the intention of majoring in English profes-
sional writing.
"There are still three girls pursuing the
GoldAward in my troop,"Aldamuy said.I'Tm
still a life long Girl Scout and I'll do whatev-
er I can to help these girls."
Thiele has no doubt about this.
"I feel that she'll actively volunteer and
be a positive role model for young girls
everywhere,"Thiele said."It makes me proud
to say I had some involvement in being a
positive role model for her."

Cut the calories with smart Starbucks ordering
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

Yes, it's time to talk about America's
most popular coffee joint, Starbucks.
While there are hundreds of options
there, not knowing how to order can
cause you to end up with a venti-sized
drink laden with calories. Personally, I
would rather eat my calories than gulp
them down in a drink, so let me give you
some healthy options to order at
Starbucks.
First, let me highlight a few food op-
tions. I have spent a lot of time typing
away on my laptop in my favorite
Starbucks joint, so I know how tempting
those sweets are in the glass case by the
register. When you walk into Starbucks, re-
member to not let your guard down.
If you want to get a quick snack, try to
stick to these two yummy, but low-cal of-
ferings:
-Reduced-fat very berry coffee cake
(only has 350 calories and 10 grams of fat).
It's a very tasty snack of crumble-top cof-
fee cake that is loaded with three kinds of
berries: blackberries, blueberries and rasp-
berries. This can curb any craving for
sweets that you may have. I used to get the
slice of banana nut bread until I saw that
had almost 500 calories and 19 grams of
fat.Yikes!
-Chicken on flatbread with hummus
artisan snack plate.This is a delicious, little
snack of grilled chicken strips, grape toma-
toes, carrot and cucumber sticks on wheat
flatbread, with a siding of hummus. It has
only 250 calories and nine grams of fat -
much better than picking up fast food.
Now, let's tread lightly as we move onto
their drinks.The best thing to do is to go
onto their website and invest five minutes
of your time to find out the calorie con-
tent of your favorite Starbucks drink.


This chicken on flatbread snack plate has
250 calories and nine grams of fat, signifi-
cantly less than many traditional fast food
options.

Since I often go to Starbucks to get
some of my work done, I have learned to
discipline myself and stick with hot orange
tea, although I do get myself a small mocha
with soy milk every once in a while. It
amazes me how I get as much kick from
the tea as I do from the mocha. I think it's
because most of these types of drinks are
half-filled with milk, with not much coffee
in them.
If you want their fancier Frappuccino
blends, here are some low-calorie options:
-Caffe vanilla frappuccino light (170
calories, 0 fat)
-Coffee light frappuccino (110 calo-
ries, 0 fat)
-Mocha light ffrappuccino blended
beverage (140 calories and ig of fat)
If there's a drink you enjoy, but it is way
too fattening, order it only once in a while
and never make it your main drink. You
can even reduce the fat and calories in
your favorite drink by saying no to
whipped cream - this already
saves you up to 140 calorie,
and 12 grams of fat - and
asking for sugar-free syrup. "
Take advantage of their
healthier substitutes such
as skim milk and soy milk.

Interior Designer Donald Fries


Design Three Interiors saves clients

money with planning and budgeting


Donald Fries and his two partners
at Design Three Interiors are deter-
mined to change the way people per-
ceive interior designers.
"Most people think only wealthy
people hire interior designers and that
our work is an expensive luxury," said
Fries. "But that simply is not true!"
In fact, using an interior designer
frequently saves people money
because it helps them to develop a
decorating plan that fits their budget
and allows the plan to be implement-
ed a step at a time as they can afford it,
explains Fries.
"Using our design services actually
costs very little because we purchase
our furniture and material at whole-
sale prices and use this savings to pay
for our services," says Fries, who has
been a licensed interior designer for
more than 30 years.
Fries and his partners, Rosemary
McKean and Diane Sedlak, have
worked together for more than 10
years as interior designers in the
Tampa Bay area. The trio opened their
own studio two years ago, first off
Ehren Cutoff in Land 0' Lakes and
moving in March to an inviting store-
front in Lutz on US 41 just north of
Super Wal-Mart.
Their new retail store has a pletho-
ra of decorating ideas, accessories and
groupings of themed furnishings sold
individually or by room. "Our items
are usually less expensive than what
you would pay at a big box store and
the quality is far superior," said Fries.
In addition to its retail store,
Design Three Interiors offers a full
array of design services, including win-
dow treatments, floor coverings, furni-


ture, upholstery, accessories, paint
consulting and even architectural and
kitchen design. Customers can hire
the company to design a single room
or an entire house.
"We listen very carefully to our
clients and design for their lifestyle,"
said Fries. "This is not a 'fluff and stuff'
design shop. We design for form and

Fries and his partners look at a
house objectively with a fresh set of
eyes to find solutions to old problems.
They create storyboards with colors,
fabric swatches and flooring material
for every job, no matter how small it is.
"A story board helps us educate our
customers so they can visualize what
we recommend," said Fries. "We'll
give you the very best quality material
and furniture at the best price we can
get."
Fries and his partners are frequent-
ly asked why they opened a new inte-
rior design business in the midst of a
recession.
"The down economy has actually
worked to our advantage," said Fries.
There are many people out there who
have a whole new approach to living,
who realize they can't sell their house
so they invest in remaking it to what
they've always wanted."

Record number run in Lutz 5K rai t


By Zack Peterson
zpeterson@cnewspubs.com

The sound of a record 462 pairs of feet
pounding pavement signaled another
Independence Day 5K run in Lutz.
"It's the biggest turnout we've had yet,"
said race coordinator Terry Donovan.
The increased participation brought out
the sights and smells the Lutz people have
always grown accustomed to: the multitude
of sponsors greeting people with smiles, the
freshly cut grass surrounding the Lutz
Community Center and the love for a tightly
knit community radiating from everybody.
It also brought out the competition.
The Independence Day 5K Race lured in
runners from multiple different communi-
ties spread across Florida.
While some woke up in Lutz and
stepped right outside their front doors to
the starting line, others rolled in from
Sarasota or, in the case of top woman's fin-
isher Ali Crabb, St. Petersburg.
Crabb finished with a unofficial time of
17:37 and claimed victory for the first time
in the Lutz Independence Day 5K Race.
"Last year I came in second place behind
JackiWachtel," Crabb explained.
For the past eight years Crabb has been
running but claims she only got serious
about running the summer before her sen-
ior year.
Her successes with running lead her to
the University of Florida, where she's since
participated in the track and field and cross
country programs there.
Now that she's home for the summer,
Crabb says she prepared for the race by

said 462 people participated in the July 4 event. The overall winner, Oscar Orozco, is pic-
tured in the orange tank top. (Photos by Zack Peterson)


Ali Crabb was the first woman's finisher.
Crabb used her training with the Florida
Forerunners and her experience with the
University of Florida's track and field and
cross country programs to propel her way
to a 17:37 finish.
training with the Florida Forerunners.
"The Florida Forerunners are based out
of Tampa and St. Pete," Crabb said."It's just a
group of people who love to run, meet up
whenever and enjoy training together."
According to Crabb, the Forerunners
train together during the hot summer heat
and run at local races everywhere.
"We even had a few run the local mid-
night race," Crabb said.
The Midnight Run, hosted in Dunedin
the night before the Independence Day 5K,
had several Independence Day 5K runners


participate in its events, including Oscar
Orozco, the first male finisher and the over-
all winner of the Independence Day 5K
race.
Orozco, 23 and a student at USF, finished
with an unofficial 5K time of 16:25. He also
won the one-mile race at the Midnight Run
with a time of 4:36.
Like Crabb, Orozco has been an active
runner for the past eight years, and trains
frequently with the Tampa Bay Running
Center, a runners group located near
Gaither High School. He too was a first-time
winner of the event.
"I was kind of tired because I did the
Midnight Run last night. I was running on
some tired legs so I didn't really know what
was going to happen," Orozco said. "I
thought I was barely going to get under sev-
enteen (minutes)."


According to Orozco, the heat was a
challenging factor, but something"that's ex-
pected."
"Overall, it's a flat course; it's a fast
course," Orozco said.
From the initial start Orozco pushed his
way to the front and ran in a pack of three.
"The competition was good," Orozco
said."We stayed close together."
It wasn't until a final break in the bend
that spectators would see Orozco shoot to-
wards the finish line with no competition in
immediate sight.
And for Orozco, victory was sweet.
At the finish line, he gleamed from ear to
ear, exasperated, sweating and breathing
hard, but thrilled nonetheless.
"I'm happy with it all," Orozco said."It's
not the Fourth of July without a couple
races."


Kranendonk to lead Land 0' Lakes volleyball


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Mary Jane Kranendonk has been named
the volleyball coach for Land O' Lakes High,
according to Gators athletic director Karen
Coss.
"We are very excited to have such a
wonderfully enthusiastic and dedicated
coach join our staff," Coss said.
Kranendonk played volleyball at King
High. She is currently a physical education
teacher at Denham Oaks Elementary.
"I am very excited about coaching the
Gators volleyball team," Kranendonk said.
"Go Gators."
Kranendonk replaces Laurie Fitzpatrick,
who took over the program in 2010. The
Gators went 19-4 in 2010 in Fitzpatrick's
first season, eight wins better than the year

semifinals.
Fitzpatrick also took over the Land 0'
Lakes girls basketball program last season,

coach despite winning a combined 43 con-
tests last season.

where she guided the team to a 24-3 record,
20 wins better than the previous season,
and to the first regional finals appearance in
program history. She was replaced a few


weeks ago by Phyllis Crain, who will join
the school as a physical education teacher
in the fall.
Coss said both coaching positions were
advertised because Fitzpatrick was on staff
at Hudson High, her alma mater.
Kranendonk is also not on staff with the
Gators, but she and her husband,Jim, are big
supporters of all Land O' Lakes' athletics and
their son, John, is a junior-to-be defensive
lineman on the football team.
"A lot of the girls were upset and I was
also," Fitzpatrick said."I knew I would not be
hired back for both sports. I lot happened
and I argued with administration about it.
I'm applying at Hudson for a junior varsity
volleyball job and varsity girls basketball. I
didn't apply at other schools because I
might as well try and change Hudson's pro-
grams."
Hudson girls basketball went 1-20-1 in
2010.

Florida State College.
If he had gone to a four-year school he could not be draft-
ed until his junior season.Witkowski was not taken in this
year's MLB draft.
Witkowski has attended Steinbrenner since it opened in
2009. He spent the previous two years atWiregrass Ranch. He
batted a team high .528 with 19 runs scored, five home runs
and seven doubles in 2011, while adding 19 RBI and six steals.

Wiregrass Ranch accused of 10 FHSAA violations


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Wiregrass Ranch High has been fined
$12,525 and placed on administrative pro-
bation by the Florida High School Athletic
Association (FHSAA) after a seven-week in-
vestigation identified recruiting violations.
The FHSAA's 68-page report found 10 vio-
lations of its policies in the months leading up
to point guard Briahanna Jackson's transfer to
the school from Wesley Chapel and in her
time playing girls basketball with the Bulls.
Among the allegations, the governing
board of school athletics charges Wiregrass
Ranch with "a lack of institutional control."
Another potentional violation accuses girls
basketball coach Greg Finkel, who has
coached the program since the school
opened five years ago, falsifying information
given to the FHSAA and not being fully co-
operative with the investigation.
Wiregrass Ranch Principal Ray Bonti said
the school is still going through the report to
determine if the school will appeal any of the
potential violations. He was first given the re-
port on June 6,more than a month ago.
The school has already given written re-
sponses to the FHSAA, where they deny any
wrongdoing in all but two of the 10
charges. Four of the violations come with
$2,500 fines and one cost the Bulls $400.
The remaining $2,125 was to repay the
FHSAA half the money spent in conducting
the investigation, which is standard policy.
Wiregrass Ranch girls basketball was
placed on two-year probation, which will
end on June 1, 2013.The Bulls entire athletic
program is also on probation for one year,
which ends on June 1, 2012.Any additional
violations that happen within that time
could trigger harsher penalties in the future.
"It's common for a school to go on pro-
bation when one of its teams is charged
with something like this," said Bulls athletic
director Dave Wilson. "That doesn't do any-
thing to prevent us playing next season in
districts, regionals or state events."
Bonti and Wilson said no decision has
been made on Finkel's status with the girls
basketball team. Finkel is currently a driver's
education teacher atWiregrass Ranch.

Transfers draw attention
The story starts in May of 2010, during
Jackson's junior year. Jackson transferred
from Lecanto High in Citrus County to
Wesley Chapel High. She had been living
with her mother Cathleen Grippe before
coming to Pasco County.
Grippe said, in an interview with Wesley
Chapel principal Carin Nettles, that she
asked former Wesley Chapel staff member
and girls basketball coach Warren Jones to
become Jackson's legal guardian. Grippe said
she was a single mother of five and Jackson
was struggling in school at Lecanto because
of financial problems at home.The family did
not want Jackson to drop out of school like
her old brother did, according to the report.
"She moved in with me on May 13,
2010,"Jones told the FHSAA.
In the report, Jones told the FHSAA he
knew many of the teachers from his time on
staff at Wesley Chapel. He felt he could work
closely with them to help improve Jackson's
grades, with the goal of getting her into col-
lege.
Jackson was the point guard at Lecanto
her junior season and led the Panthers with
18.6 points per game while adding 158 re-
bounds, 131 steals and 89 assists.
The FHSAA started looking into the mat-
ter because Jackson transferred to Wesley
Chapel the same day Shanel Sweet did from
Gaither High. Sweet a point guard, subse-
quently transferred to Land O' Lakes High
and FHSAA spokesman Seth Polansky said
she was cleared to play her senior season as
the family established permanent residence
within that district.
The report states Nettles asked Jones on
May 26,2010 where he and Jackson lived.
He said in the Delano Apartment at Cypress
Creek on Saxony Way, within Wiregrass

Ranch's district.
Jones told Nettles they were moving
into a home on Lexington Oaks Boulevard,
within the Wildcats' district, the next day.
Jackson was withdrawn from Wesley Chapel
on May 27,2010 when Jones did not pres-
ent documentation of the move. She was
enrolled atWiregrass Ranch on June 1,2010,
very close to the end of the school year.

Summer league adds to violations
Jackson played with the Suncoast
Basketball Club, anAAU team started in the
summer of 2010 by Jones. The club prac-
ticed at the Bulls' gym on at least two, and as
many as eight, times before Jackson became
aWiregrass Ranch student.
FHSAA regulations state that any student-
athlete who participates with a team affiliated
with a school before becoming a student
there, and then transfers to that same school,
will be considered,"bona fide evidence that
the student is attending the school in whole
or in part for athletic reasons."
The report state Jackson participated in
two such practices, leading to two of the vio-
lations. Because she participated before
transferring from Wesley Chapel,Jackson was
found to have received improper benefits.
Wiregrass Ranch's response states the
Suncoast Basketball Club is in no way a
Bulls' team because no one affiliated with
the school was a part of the program.
However, the FHSAA conducted interviews
with Jones, Jackson and other parents
whose kids played with the club.The organ-
ization found evidence that Finkel not only
spent time at the practices, but also sat with
Jones on the bench for several games.
Additionally, Finkel signed the activity re-
quest form that allowed Suncoast to use the
Bulls gym instead of Jones or another coach.
Suncoast was never charged for use of the
gym as it should have, based on FHSAA and
Pasco School Districts' rules.
The FHSAA findings state Finkel's con-
tact with Jones while Jackson played with
Suncoast while she was attending Wesley
Chapel constitute illegal recruiting.
In the report, Finkel said he only knew
Jones from when their teams played against
each other years ago. Jones resigned the
girls basketball coaching job at Wesley
Chapel in 2008 to join the coaching staff at
Saint Leo University.
Finkel told the FHSAA he did not know
Jackson was attending Wiregrass Ranch until
two days after she started at the school.That
statement was considered false by the
FHSAA.

The winter basketball season
Jones told the FHSAA he and Jackson lived
at the Delano Apartment until the beginning
of October. At that time they moved into a
home on Amberly Drive, within Freedom
High's district in Hillsborough County
Jones said he was house sitting for a rela-
tive. He told the FHSAA he had an
agreement with the manager of the apart-
ments so he and Jackson could move back


at anytime. The FHSAA said that does not
constitute residence within Wiregrass
Ranch's district because they did not live
there, pay for rent or even have furniture
after October.
In an interview with the FHSAA,Jones said
he told Finkel of the move.
The Bulls girls basketball season began
with two straight wins; a 66-38 victory over
Ida Baker High on Nov 11 and 62-52 against
Gulf on Nov. 13.Jackson scored 30 points in
those two November contest while adding
five rebounds, five assists, four assists and
two blocks. She also participated in two pre-
season games.
Both regular season games happened
after Jackson moved in Freedom's district, so
Wiregrass Ranch will forfeit both wins, ac-
cording to Polansky.The Bulls final record
for the 2010-11 season is 14-12.
Finkel wrote a letter to the FHSAA in an
attempt to clear Jackson to play her senior
season. It reads in part,"I believe in this case,
we are stripping (Jackson) of her education
and experiences as a senior at Wiregrass
Ranch High School. She has been through a
lot at home and at school. Since arriving
here reluctantly at Wiregrass, she has grown
as a young lady. She has made a 180-degree
turn as a student and as a person.
"Through this month long investigation,
she has had to endure much without any-
one telling her why. (Jackson) loves her new
school and most of all loves the game of bas-
ketball."
Despite the letter, Jackson sat out the rest
of her senior season as the Bulls sought
more information on her eligibility. In the re-
port, Bonti said they removed her from
competition as soon as the school was told
she might be ineligible.

Mother speaks out about charges
Jackson declined to comment for this
story, but Grippe, her mother, did speak. She
expressed frustration because she said the
FHSAA never directly interviewed her.
"Basketball is my daughter's life, she lives
and breathes it," Grippe said. "What seemed
fishy for me throughout the investigation
was they had so many questions as to why
Bri was even transferred. They never con-
tacted the one person who could have
answered all their questions. Me, her moth-
er.They made remarks and insinuations as to
why she was there and they had no idea. I
did what was in the best interest of my
daughter for her to have every opportunity
in life and at what she will make her career,
basketball.
"I am appalled by how some individual,
probably a parent themselves, that they
could do this to a young girl who had and
still has nothing but great things happening
for her," Grippe continued. "We do not
know where this even stemmed from for
them to begin an investigation and we will
probably never will know, but the only one
who suffered was Bri herself by losing her
senior year to play basketball."
In the end, Jackson may not lose as


Potential violations
According to the FHSAA,Wiregrass
Ranch High School faces $12,525 in fines
for the following violations:
-Providing false information to the
FHSAA when seeking eligibility for
Jackson. Fined $2,500.
-Coach Greg Finkel did not fully co-
operate with the FHSAA investigation by
providing false information. Fined $2,500.
-Coach Greg Finkel falsified infor-
mation relative to the eligibility for
Briahanna Jackson.
-Allowing the Suncoast Basketball
Club to practice in Wiregrass Ranch's
gym without legal and binding agree-
ment. Fined $2,500.
-Providing impermissible benefits to
Briahanna Jackson by allowing her to par-
ticipate in practices at the school before
she was enrolled atWiregrass Ranch.
-Warren Jones falsified information
for the benefit of gaining athletic eligibili-
ty for Briahanna Jackson.
-Committing improper contact with
Briahanna Jackson before she became a
student at Wiregrass Ranch.
-Two counts of allowing Briahanna
Jackson to participate with a nonschool
team affiliated with Wiregrass Ranch be-
fore attending the school for 365 days.
Fined $400.
-Demonstrating a lack of institu-
tional control of the athletic department.
Fined $2,500.
Wiregrass Ranch is also required to
repay half of the fees the FHSAA had in
conducting the investigation, a total of
$2,125. To read the entire FHSAA report
and investigation, visit http://cnewspubs.com
and click the sports tab.


Grippe said she has several Division I col-
leges interested in her as a basketball player.
Grippe said Jackson, who graduated from
Freedom, will attend IMG Basketball
Academy in Bradenton on a full scholarship
this year. The facility will allow Jackson to
continue growing as a basketball player in a
highly competitive environment, while tak-
ing classes designed to help on college
entrance exams so she can attend the best
school possible.
"All I can say to the individual who brought
all this on is that all your efforts to discourage
a young athlete didn't work because although
this experience for my daughter cost her an
important year, she has bigger and better
things waiting for her future and my daughter
has the drive and the ability to make all her
dreams come true," Grippe said."... Bri is a nat-
ural born athlete and it shows."
Grippe's words about Jackson became
evident after enrolling at Freedom.

Flag football at Freedom
Jackson began attending Freedom at the
start of 2011 and was quickly named the
starting quarterback on the Patriots flag
football team. Polansky said the FHSAA will
not comment on the eligibility of any stu-
dent-athlete, but said Freedom is not under
any investigation as Wiregrass Ranch was.
During the flag football season,Jackson
said she had not played the sport for almost
10 years. She picked up where she left off
years ago, guiding Freedom to a 10-1 record
to finish as the District 12 runner-up.
Jackson set several program records in
her only year playing at Freedom. Her 1,023
rushing yards and 18 rushing scores are
more than anyone else in program history.
She also added 1,289 passing yards and an-
other 18 touchdowns.
As a defensive back,Jackson became the
first Patriot to ever have 23 interceptions in
a season, and also added 26 flag pulls.
Jackson was selected to the All-Western
Conference National Division first team. She
was also named the All-Laker/All-Lutz News
Player of the Year for flag football. Because
she has not been found ineligible to play at
Freedom, she will keep that distinction.

Hillsborough welcomes emergency director


A Laker/Lutz News staff report
Hillsborough County wel-
comed its new Office of
Emergency Management direc-
tor, Preston Cook, just in time for
the 2011 hurricane season.
Cook brings more than 20 years
of experience in public service
and emergency management to
the post. His first day was June
27 and he will make $105,000
per year.
In his introduction to the
Hillsborough commissioners at
their June 15 meeting, Cook
said, "The opportunity here to
do great things is very phenom-
enal and I'm excited to get to
work."
Cook most recently served as
the executive director of
Emergency Management for
Orange County, where he was


responsible for oversight of the
execution of emergency plans and guide-
lines, disaster operations and the activation
of the county's Emergency Operations
Center.
Cook is originally from Birmingham,Ala.
Prior to relocating to Florida, he served five
years in the U.S.Army specializing in secure
communications within the military intelli-
gence community.
He began his career with Orange County
in 1991 and was certified as an emergency
manager in 1998 by the International
Association of Emergency Managers. He is
also certified as a Florida Professional
Emergency Manager and has a master's de-
gree in public administration from the
University of Central Florida.
Orange County was accredited through
the Emergency Management Accreditation
Program under Cook's leadership in March


Preston Cook recently took over as the Hillsborough
director of the Office of Emergency Management.

2009. That county was only the second
within Florida and the fourth organization
of its size in the nation to achieve this dis-
tinction.
Cook also oversaw the development of a
regional post-disaster economic redevelop-
ment plan, which helped find issues
affecting the region's vision for restoring the
economy. In May 2009, former Florida Gov.
Charlie Crist presented Cook with the
Florida's Emergency Management Award in
recognition of his extraordinary commit-
ment to excellence and leadership.
The Office of Emergency Management is
now a division of the Fire Rescue
Department because Hillsborough reorgan-
ized many aspects of its government.
Because of this, Cook will report to the fire
chief, or to the county administrator's office
during declared emergencies.

WHAT'S IN A NAME


Decoding the history of Pasco's


forts, corners and more


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.comrn

This week will look into how Fort
Broome, Gall Boulevard, Gower's Corner
and Jessamine got their names.
(1) FORT BROOME in Dade City was
named for former Florida Gov. James E.
Broome, who served from 1853-1857. It was
built at the end of the first Seminole War to
protect the only town in what is now east
Pasco County.All the settlers had to live in
the fort when the second Seminole War
began.
This fort was located on the south line of
the farm ofW. C. Brown about halfway be-
tween Wire and Richland roads, about two
miles south of present Dade City. Close ob-
servers can see where the wood cabins
from the first settlers stood by the discol-
oration of the soil under the oak trees now
growing there.Those who lived around the
fort were said to have called the area Fort
Broome.
(2) GALL BOULEVARD is what US 301
is called through Zephyrhills. It is named for
Walter R. Gall, who was able to influence
the state to run the highway through the
east Pasco County city. Gall's son Owen, was
a prominent resident of Zephyrhills who
died in 2008 at age 96.
(3) GOWER'S CORNER is named after
WA. Gower, who once owned all four cor-
ners of the intersection of US 41 and SR 52
in the mid-1920s. Grower had been superin-
tendent at theAripeka Sawmills at Fivay in
west Pasco County until the timber ran out
and the mills closed. Gower bought 80 acres
of the then-bare land for himself, including
corners of the intersection.

. in lt


.s , '


Gower also owned a portable sawmill
that he moved from place to place, remov-
ing whatever timber was still left and
marketable. He built a grocery store on the
southeast corner of the intersection, which
he eventually turned over to his son Ralph.
The store later became a filling station run
by Joseph Chapman, but was demolished in
the summer of 1984.Today a shopping area
known as Chapman Square stands in its
place.
(4) JESSAMINE is located in Dade City
and includes the area around Jessamine
Road between Blanton, Lake Lola and St. Joe
roads, including Jessamine Lake. In 1887,
businessmen Walter Pike and William
Ellsworth moved to Pasco County and were
intent on starting a seed and plant business.
They moved into an old cabin on the edge
of what is now Jessamine Lake, about five
miles southwest of Trilby.
The two began clearing the woodland
and became so impressed with the pleasant
smell of a certain wild flowering vine that
they named their company Jessamine
Gardens and their community Jessamine.
They later started growing citrus under the
name Jessamine Groves.
For additional information on these areas
and how they got their names, visit
www.fivay.org.

The Laker and the Lutz News series on
how historic places were named will con-
tinue throughout the summer Information
is provided by interviews with Pasco
County historian Jeff 1ill -i of Fivay.org
and the West Pasco Historical Society. See
how Lake Jovita and Land O' Lakes got
their names next week.

Using summer's heat for good


By B.J. Jarvis
Pasco Extension Horticulture Agent and Director
Summer is here and the garden is rest-
ing. Underground, though, many pests are
proliferating, just waiting for a tasty plant
meal.
Well-intended gardeners plant their
tomatoes, peppers, sweet potatoes and egg-
plants each fall only to witness poor
performance or death. Often the culprit
isn't a chomping rabbit, an insect or a dev-
astating disease, but microscopic
nematodes that favor our typically sandy
soil, high humidity and warm temperatures.
Microscopic nematodes are one of
those pests that go unseen, but their ef-
fects are certainly evident. Some turf is
susceptible to their feeding effects, but
nearly every vegetable in the garden can
be impacted.
Unfortunately, chemical controls have
been limited during the last few decades,
restricted to just a few that must be man-
aged by commercial operators. So what is
a home gardener to do?
Summer is the best time to take non-
chemical action to prepare the garden bed
for fall planting. Use these simple and inex-
pensive ways to help suppress nematodes.
Gardeners with a large property can
simply rotate the garden bed to different
parts of the landscape, although not so
practical for many residents. For those just
growing a few plants, container gardening
with sterile potting mixes will work.
Others though must find a way to deal
with the little pests.
Soils with lots of organic matter wit-
ness lower populations of nematodes
because organic matter favors higher pop-
ulations of beneficial organisms. Add
organic amendments of manures or com-
post at planting time or top-dressing plants
already in the ground. Basically, if garden-


Laying down a layer of clear plastic where
plants aren't growing raises the soil tem-
perature to control many pests. (Photo
courtesy of Jarvis)
ers have a source of organic matter, use it!
Soil solarization is the process of cover-
ing planting areas, free of plant material,
with clear plastic for four to six weeks rais-
ing the temperatures to 130 degree or
higher. During this time, the barren gar-
den provides little for the pests to eat and
prolonged exposure to high temperatures
under the plastic reduces nematode popu-
lations.
Additional benefits of chemical-free soil
solarizing are that weed seeds, many fungi
and other damaging insect populations are
reduced as well.
Since there are few vegetables immune
to the ill-effects of nematode injury, try
harnessing the power of the sun to battle
the effects of pests in the soil. Employ
some of these activities now so planting
beds are ready for fall vegetable planting
around Labor Day.
For more information on how to solar-
ize garden soil, go to this University of
Florida website, http://bit.ly/SoilSolarizing.

PLANNING, from page 1
In the executive summary of the report,
the auditors note: "Community plans do not
have the same format or elements, adding to
complexity and confusion to the develop-
ment review process."
Community planning is a tool that has
been used in Hillsborough County to help
individual communities guide the future de-
velopment of their particular geographic
area.
In theory, in places like Keystone/Odessa,
where residents have battled for years to
preserve the rural character of the area, a
community plan can help to assure that
commercial development doesn't change
the area's nature.
The community of Lutz also has consis-
tently been involved in planning efforts - to
keep major highways and big development
from overtaking the once rural and now pri-
marily suburban community.
The county's new guide to community
planning will create a template for individ-
ual communities to follow when they are
creating their individual plans or updating
them, Silva said.
But the development of that guide could
have a profound effect on what is consid-
ered when community plans are created. So,
this exercise goes far beyond merely provid-
ing a standard format to follow.
Some key issues include:
-What should a community plan in-
clude?
-What kind of notice should be re-
quired when proposals are made to create
or change community plans?


HART, from page 1
"One of the things people complain
about bus service is the times don't fit into
their schedule or it's too difficult to remem-
ber the times," said HART board member
and Hillsborough Commissioner Mark
Sharpe."This is one of the ways we're work-
ing to make bus travel easier and bigger
within Hillsborough County, and it's very af-
fordable.?
Mejia said HART has a similar flex pro-
gram in Brandon and the southern portions
of the county, which began inApril 2010.
"The flex zones in Brandon and south
county began as pilot projects, and have
been well received," Mejia said."The most re-
cent U.S. Census numbers in Hillsborough
County indicate that most of the population
growth in the past 10 years occurred in un-
incorporated Hillsborough County."
HART is also making changes to the
Route 36, which currently runs along Dale
Mabry. HARTFlex zone is replacing regular
buses from that route within the new pro-
gram's zone. Mejia said the board predicts
ridership in that area will drop as HARTflex
picks up, so the need for the current bus
service won't be needed.


-What can be done to ensure that com-
munity planning reflects the broad interests
of a community, not just the special interests
of a few?
-How do individual community plans
mesh with overall strategic or economic
goals of the county?
-How can the county avoid mistakes
made during previous community planning
efforts?
-What can be done to ensure that de-
sires of the community, as adopted in
community plans, are ultimately upheld by
people who issue permits for various build-
ing activities?
At the initial session, opinions were all
over the map.
Some participants said that previous
community planning efforts have gone
too far - by including restrictions that pro-
hibit the practical use of property. Others
said that community plans were adopted
without enough public notice or partici-
pation.
Steve Morris of Keystone said the com-
munity plan does a good job of reflecting
the community's desires. Keystone is happy
with its plan, Morris said.
Its biggest problem, he said, is making
sure the plan is enforced by the people who
issue county permits.
Last week's meeting was just the first in a
series to hash out a new community plan-
ning guide.
Ultimately, the Hillsborough County
Commission will vote on the community
planning guide.That vote is expected in the
fall.

program or to make a trip reservation,
call (813) 449-4555. For more informa-
tion about HART and its bus routes,visit
www.gohart.org.


"Service changes occur in part to adjust
to ridership trends," Mejia said."As popula-
tion densities change, so do ridership
trends.Therefore, HART service will change
in the future to adjust to these trends, and
better match service with demand.This is
how we keep our service as efficient and ef-
fective as possible."
The route changes begin on Sunday, July
10. Mejia said ridership for Route 36 in May
2011 was 57,350, up 23 percent from the
46,826 during May 2010.
In addition, HART's board approved an
increase in the millage rate, up to .500 to
prevent drastic service cuts, according to
Mejia. The increase to the average house-
hold - valued at $92,820 - will pay an
extra $1.61 each year to a total of $46.41.
The increase balances the organization's
2011-12 budget.
